The trio are thought to have proposed an alternative candidate to run the company but have been rejected by non-executive directors, led by Alasdair Locke, the chairman, who say they fully support Montgomery.Patrick Thillieux, a veteran European media executive, is believed to be the person put forward for the top job.Montgomery faced an internal revolte in May 2009 when, as executive chairman, a group of directors tried to oust him from the board. The arch cost-cutter successfully fought back and won the support of investors. Six directors later resigned.Mecom’s shares have experienced a roller-coaster ride, falling 97 per cent in 2008 before recovering this year.

first_img PRIVATE equity firm Blackstone Group yesterday posted quarterly earnings that beat market forecasts, and said the value of its private equity and real estate portfolios rose, although the amount invested in new deals was steady.The firm, which has investments in companies including Hilton Hotels and casino operator Harrah’s Entertainment, said third-quarter economic net income, or ENI, rose to $339m from $275m (£212.7m) a year earlier.The value of the firm’s private equity investments rose six per cent over the previous quarter and its real estate funds rose 19 per cent, Blackstone said.The amount of capital invested by the funds was little changed over the previous year, chief operating officer Tony James said on a conference call.While financing conditions have rebounded, making it easier to strike large leveraged buyouts, valuations are still too high in some cases, he said.“It’s much harder to find things of attractive value,” James said. “There are some good companies being sold, but we just can’t get to the prices that are required.”Money is instead being invested in “very high proprietary content,” James said, referring to deals that are created by Blackstone rather than bidding in auctions.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Tesco shares, it seems, enjoy the status of a safe haven. The supermarket chain sells groceries and other essentials. But are the shares a buy right now?  High supermarket salesAs we all know, in the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis many people panic-bought essentials. This led to a dramatic rise in many supermarkets’ sales revenues. Tesco also benefitted from this stockpiling, and its sales grew by 12.7%. However, some analysts argue that the pandemic also led to a large boost in online shopping at the expense of traditional supermarkets. Ocado‘s sales, for example, increased by a hefty 32.5%. On the other hand, many traditional supermarkets launched food delivery services. In this way traditional supermarkets are able to compete with pure online supermarkets. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Although the coronavirus-related rise in online shopping might seem like a one-off or a non-recurring event, I don’t think it is. It’s logical to think that many people will resume traditional shopping after the end of the pandemic. But some will continue ordering groceries and other essentials online for the sake of convenience. I also see another reason for high volumes of online deliveries in the near future. The second wave of Covid-19 is already there. Even though some analysts don’t think it will lead to the second lockdown, many consumers will still prefer to continue shopping online. Tesco’s competitive positionWhat does it mean for Tesco shares? Well, the supermarket will probably adapt to the new reality. It offers food delivery services, although it cannot meet all the consumer demand right now. According to its website, the time slots for online deliveries fill up very quickly. But I see that there is a lot of potential for Tesco to improve and grow its online shopping unit. Tesco is by far the largest supermarket chain in the UK, which a market share of about 27%. Its size is a great competitive advantage. Tesco’s rival, large discounter Aldi, has 7.7% market share in the UK, taking second place in the country.  Tesco lost some of its customers to Aldi during the great recession of 2008–09 because of Aldi’s low pricing. Tesco must be concerned about something similar happening now. The supermarket chain has asked its suppliers, including some famous brands, to match their pricing to that of Aldi. Tesco itself will also have to reduce its profit margins.Although this strategy might be devastating for Tesco and its suppliers, it will also be painful for Aldi. In fact, Aldi might lose that price war. Even if it doesn’t, Tesco will, at least, avoid losing its market share to the discounter. Tesco reports its earnings tomorrow, so, we shall see how the Covid-19 has really affected its revenue and profit.   Here’s what I’d doThe supermarket’s valuation isn’t high. It’s trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of about 17. At the time of writing, Tesco’s shares traded at 225p per share, whereas the stock’s 52-week trading range is 203.70p to 260.40p. It seems to me that there is potential for growth. Although Tesco’s competitors and the price war make the future look uncertain, the supermarket is rather a safe haven now.  Image source: Getty Images Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply November 25, 2018 at 9:46 am 2 COMMENTS Mama Mia InspirationBy Don LindseyWith a wonderful Thanksgiving behind me, my family and I are gearing up for Christmas.  Actually, my wife and daughter spend all year preparing for Christmas.  On any given day you can hear them humming holiday tunes and talking about what they want for presents.This literally happens all year.For my part, I start feeling the holiday spirit once turkey day is over.  We already have our tree up and I’m getting the urge to listen to my Christmas playlist. Hearing the kids talk more about what they hope to get and seeing the decorations around town going up is also helping to get me into the holiday mood.  It wasn’t always like that, however, for a few years before I moved here, I didn’t really celebrate any of the holidays.Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed seeing family when we gathered, but with no kids, there didn’t seem to be a lot to celebrate.  I would also find myself rather annoyed with certain aspects of the Christmas season such as heavier traffic on the roads and longer waiting times in store lines.  I can remember there being a few years where I’d get rather aggravated towards the beginning of the season due to a traffic jam or something and mutter to myself “and so it begins”.Thankfully that all changed once I moved down here from Ohio and married Tammy.  For one, it’s hard to be around her and not be in the Christmas spirit yourself.  The fall decorations are coming down and as I mentioned, and the tree is already up.  Within the next week or so, more of the Christmas decorations will join the tree and you can hear such classics as Bing Crosby’s White Christmas playing when she’s in the kitchen or in the car driving.Another thing that changed when I moved here was that I got saved and accepted Jesus Christ as my savior.  Now Christmas is not only about family but it’s first and foremost a celebration of His birth.  When I look at my life since I’ve been saved and see the opportunities given to me, I can’t help but be grateful to the Lord.  I have a beautiful wife, three wonderful kids, and I get to spend a huge chunk of time with my parents as their caretaker which is important to me given their ages (86).  I’m getting better at thanking Jesus for those blessings and celebrating when He was born is part of that.Since I’ve adopted that attitude, I seemed to be less annoyed with the hustle and bustle of the holiday rush that started on Thursday night and will last for the better part of a month.  As a matter of fact, I find that I am getting excited as the days wind down because I’m anxious for Christmas to get here.  Spending the day with family going through our traditions is always a great experience.  We just did the same thing for Thanksgiving at my mother in law’s place and I’m looking forward to doing the same here on Christmas day.With the season now in full swing, I can’t help but think to myself “and so it begins”.  This time, however, that’s a good thing. November 25, 2018 at 9:37 pm Donnie, yes, you are very blessed. You have your wife, your kids, your parents, your mother in law, who just happens to live by the sea, when you all visit her, and stay with her. How cool is that? Plus, your pets, and a warm home. That is a special blessing! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you, and yours Donnie, sent early, and you too Mr. Towne! Peace be with you all.

This is the second year of the program.“The students were very impressed with the southern hospitality, generous treatment, size of the campus and facilities, and the BBQ,” said Ohyoon Kwon, KMU’s Assistant Professor of Advertising and Public Relations.Out of the eight students that attended the first exchange, seven of the students had never been to the United States before. This program provided them with the opportunity to learn more about the culture of the United States.“TCU’s Strategic Communication program is very similar to KMU’s,” said Jang Ho Moon, SMU’s Associate Professor of Communications. “One difference was how small the class sizes are here.”The student to faculty ratio at TCU is 13:1, while it is closer to 40:1 at KMU.Students at TCU are provided with the opportunity to hear students from South Korea speak about their experiences. In the summer of 2018, TCU students will have the chance to visit other countries themselves.“There is a study abroad program being created for next year where TCU students will get to spend two weeks traveling to Seoul and Singapore and visiting SMU,” Jung said.The three universities have created a well-standing relationship that they hope will continue for many years to come.“These two universities are very appreciative of Jong-Hyuok and the faculty here,” Kwon said. “We are really thankful to have this opportunity.” Ash Wednesday marks start of Lent ReddIt + posts World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin Previous articleSophomore standout Robinson Jr. earns weekly Big 12 honorNext articleHorned Frogs notch Red Raiders at home 62-61 Taylor Boser RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Taylor Boserhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/taylor-boser/ ReddIt Facebooklast_img read more

News Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” IraqMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders’ Secretary-General Robert Ménard and journalist and former hostage in Iraq Florence Aubenas, met Iraqi ambassador in Paris, Mowafak Abboud, to appeal for his help in finding two journalists of al-Sumariya TV who will have been held hostage for five months on 1st July 2006.Journalist Rim Zeid and her colleague Marwan Khazaal were abducted by four armed men on 1st February 2006 as they left a press conference at the headquarters of the Iraqi Islamic Party in the Yarmuk district of Baghdad. Al-Sumariya has had no news of them since.”We wanted to meet you with Florence Aubenas because she knows what the hostages must be going through. We have unfortunately been disappointed by the relative lack of international campaigning for these two journalists,” Ménard told the ambassador.“The fantastic solidarity shown for Florence Aubenas and Hussein Hanoun should continue for these Iraqi journalists, Rim Zeid and Marwan Khazaal”, he said. “We met the Iraqi vice-president, Adel Abdel Mehdi, a few days ago, who expressed both his solidarity and his powerlessness,” he added.Referring to her attachment to Iraq, Florence Aubenas said that it was essential to support local journalists. “Nationality is important, you need to campaign twice as hard. I would like to send a message of solidarity to my Iraqi colleagues,” she added.The ambassador said he would send these messages of solidarity to Iraqi jounralists. “What is happening in Iraq is very sad,” he said. “There are parties who want to silence the press. We are encouraged by the presence of Florence Aubenas here. I thank her personally for her attachment to Iraq despite all she has suffered. We are very touched by this initiative.”Three months after his kidnapping on 4 April, there is also no news of Salah Jali al-Gharraoui, an Iraqi employee of Agence France-Presse (AFP) in Baghdad. The news agency has no knowledge of any demand from kidnappers and still do not know who is holding him.Elsewhere, on 29 June 2006, police found the body of freelance cameraman Osama Qadeer, who worked for US TV Fox News. He was abducted by an unknown group in al-Shaab, eastern Baghdad on 25 June.A total of 99 journalists have been killed in Iraq since March 2003, and 48 have been kidnapped.
