World stocks hit two-year high

first_imgThursday 23 December 2010 5:44 am whatsapp World stocks hit two-year high whatsapp World stocks hit their highest level since September 2008 while oil held near a two-year peak as favourable US data reinforced expectations economic growth will retain momentum into next year.Wednesday’s upwardly revised data showing the US economy expanded at 2.6 per cent in the third quarter, coupled with recent retail sales figures, pointed to firmer economic activity in the world’s largest economy.Stronger banking stocks helped the S&P 500 index hit its highest level since the collapse of Lehman Brothers.“The corporate picture still looks very bright, the trend towards higher profits is going to continue and public policies should remain shareholder-friendly,” said Henk Potts, equity strategist at Barclays Wealth.“In terms of the macro environment, we would expect most of the economies to keep growing and that is a pretty powerful mix.” The MSCI world equity index was up 0.1 per cent, having earlier hit 328.89, its highest since early September 2008. The index has gained nearly ten per cent this year. The FTSEurofirst 300 index was up slightly on the day, having hit a 27-month peak earlier, while emerging stocks were steady. Tokyo was shut for a holiday.US crude oil stood at $90.48 a barrel, within half a cent of the peak that was the highest since October 2008.Abnormally cold weather in the United States and Europe has spurred the rally above $90, the latest leg in a more than 40 per cent rise from a year low in May.

3 reasons I’d buy Ocado after its share price crash

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The Ocado (LSE: OCDO) share price saw a sharp crash on Thursday evening, making it the biggest FTSE 100 loser on the day. It gained a bit on Friday, but only just. This, to me, merits exploring whether the stock is still a good buy.I’ve long been bullish on Ocado, and only see the plunge as a reason to buy more. In fact, I already did. 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…That said, I can totally see concerns other investors may have about the stock. Ocado has run up spectacularly through 2020, leaving investors wondering how long its rise can continue. Additionally, post-Brexit challenges may be on their mind too. Ocado’s CEO, Tim Steiner, recently told reporters that the company isn’t impacted as yet on this count, according to a Reuters report. But he did mention that fresh food required free-flowing ports from the country of origin to the UK. This remark takes on special significance at a time when ports are already getting congested. Yet, I see at least three reasons that firmly put the odds in favour of Ocado rather than than against it. #1. Promising financials2020 has been a very good year for Ocado, as the lockdown pushed consumers to shop online. The grocer was well-placed to handle exactly this demand. This has shown up in both its sales and earnings numbers. It has just raised its forecast for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) for the second time in two months as per a Reuters report. The number is now expected to be at £70mn for the year. I’d be worried about a run-up in its share price if its financials weren’t improving, but right now, I’m anything but that. #2. Temporary chaos onlyBrexit, especially a no-deal Brexit, can slow down Ocado’s growth. Besides the potential for delayed fresh-food availability, it can reduce overall demand. Ocado has been lucky to see an increase in sales this year, even while many other companies have languished. The lockdown has ended during the festive season, which is also a great time for shopping. But come new year, the post-Brexit situation will make itself felt over and above everything else. I reckon that if there’s a deal, we won’t have insurmountable problems anyway.Things may get awry for some time if there’s post-Brexit chaos however. Here too, I reckon it will be a matter of months before the issue is resolved. In other words, the pain for Ocado will be short-term in nature. #3. Ocado’s a strong long-term storyAnd we at the Motley Fool are most interested in long-term buys, which I think Ocado very much is. It’s in a fast-growing industry that will be the go-to way to shop in the years to come. Coronavirus has shown us how fast ‘creative destruction’ can take place in business.I think we’ll only see more of this going forward, which will hold OCDO in good stead.  See all posts by Manika Premsingh Manika Premsingh owns shares of Ocado Group.

Most corporate support still going to big name charities, research finds

Most corporate support still going to big name charities, research finds The majority of CSR managers agree that local causes are losing government funding yet most firms support big charities, research from The Good Exchange has found.The Good Exchange’s research questioned 201 CSR managers in Q1 this year. It found that more than three quarters (77%) of respondents agreed that many more local charities and good causes are losing or seeing cuts in funding from central and local government with nearly a third (32%) strongly agreeing with this statement. 75% of managers also agreed that corporate and employee fundraising activities are becoming much more important to the local community as a result.The majority (58%) reported that between one and five charities/good causes had benefited from their CSR initiatives in the last 12 months. However, most of this funding was donated to national charities (42%), compared with just 20% being allocated to those operating at a local level.54 charities were mentioned by the managers surveyed as having been supported by their organisations over a 12-month period. 54% of these are one of the top 29 charities in the UK by income, an additional 31% (17) are also either national or international charities and 16% (9) are local charities or good causes.Ed Gairdner, Chief Operating Officer of The Good Exchange, said:“Smaller charities and charitable initiatives provide essential support within communities that are dealing with the impact of years of local government cuts. However, they are missing out on vital corporate funding as they cannot compete with the big national charities when it comes to generating awareness of their funding needs and having the time and skills to identify and build relationships with the decision makers in businesses who decide which charities to give money to. “A combination of the arduous administrative burden and the fact that smaller charities are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to marketing themselves in a sector dominated by the large national charities, results in the majority of businesses funnelling money in to the same small pool of large national charities.” In fact, 34% said that detailed information about each individual charity and their fundraising projects is not easy to find and that this is a challenge they face when trying to choose who their organisation should support.43% of respondents agreed with the statement that ‘the administrative burden on our CSR team restricts our ability to donate/raise money for multiple/local causes’, showing that this is also a key stumbling block for many to widening support to more causes.While 76% of the managers surveyed said that outcome tracking, measurement and reporting and charitable programmes are important to their organisation, with 29% stating that it is extremely important, only 1% said they have an online reporting system that displays results of their organisation’s charitable giving. 44% of CSR managers said they relied on asking the recipient organisation to provide results to measure the impact of their charitable giving.  Tagged with: corporate Corporate Social Responsibility Giving/Philanthropy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis68 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Traveler brings exploratory exhibition to Fort Worth

first_imgReddIt Water scams threaten Fort Worth residents Madison McCorklehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-mccorkle/ Madison McCorkle Facebook Twitter Madison McCorklehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-mccorkle/ Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday First Christian Church doubles as downtown eye clinic Facebook Madison McCorklehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-mccorkle/ TAGSArtsNational ParksPhotography Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Local churches begin to ‘Explore God’ Madison McCorklehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-mccorkle/ printWhen David Hares II went on a 40,000-mile journey to visit the National Parks he didn’t think anyone else would care.But after putting together a collection of 85 photographs of the parks and a few “places in between,” Hares now has his own exhibit at The Fort Worth Science and History Museum.The exhibit, Exploring America: A Photographic Journey, came about for Hares after 27 years of working in the corporate world. He was ready for something different, and after his wife died in 2007, Hares and his children embarked on their nationwide adventure in 2012.“It all started when I decided to take pictures in the park,” Hares said. “[Having these photos in] the museum was beyond my wildest dreams. It wasn’t even a goal on my list.”Hares said when he was first approached to do an exhibition, he didn’t know the man who confronted him. The man turned out to be Van A. Romans, the president of The Fort Worth Science and History Museum.Hares said Romans had only seen a pre-copy of his book Exploring America: A Photographic Journey at a publishing meeting.“It’s amazing how many people have been willing to help in the process,” Hares said.However, Hares’ success with the exhibition goes beyond the physical sense. He said the exhibition caters to an emotional theme by prompting people who have visited these places to revel in their memories of being there.“That’s kind of the tagline for the exhibit–to remember the places you’ve been, the places you want to return to and the places you want to go,” he said.Martha McAuliffe, a senior art history minor at TCU, said the exhibition reminded her of her own travels to Yosemite National Park in California and Yellowstone National Park.“It was cool to look at some of the pictures, and remember how I had been there when I was little,” McAuliffe said. “After seeing the exhibition, it makes me want to visit more places.”For his family, the venture served as a way he and his two children could cope after their loss, according to his bio on the museum website.“A lot of people growing up visited these parks, so not only does it bring back the memory of that place, but also the memory of that time with their family,” said Hares.Another goal of the exhibition, Hares said, is to get people excited about National Parks and inspire the next generation to explore them.“There’ s a lot of interest in traveling abroad and one of the things I wanted to do was bring back what is beautiful here in America,” he said.The way Hares does this is through his photography and his shooting technique, which he calls the “unseen perspective.”“I try to not shoot view points,” he said. “I talk to people from that place and say ‘don’t tell me what you tell other people to do, tell me what you do in your spare time.’”Adding to the excitement is the fact that 2016 marks the 100th year anniversary of the National Park Service and National Park Foundation.“Part of this anniversary of the National Parks is to get kids interested in the parks and that’s what I’m trying to do, too,” Hares said.The Fort Worth Science and History Museum is also premiering the National Parks Adventure in IMAX this year to mark the anniversary.Apart from shooting, Hares also participates as a guest lecturer and photographer at several schools and community groups in Fort Worth.For now, Fort Worth is the first stop to host his exhibition, but Hares is expecting to show Exploring America for the next three to five years throughout the country.“The possibilities are really endless and the adventure continues,” Hares said.Requests of copies of his work and other inquires can be made on either Rabbit Press or Hares Photography websites.

Old Pasadena Launches Its commUNITY Campaign to Highlight Business Resilience and Encourage Visitor Safety

first_img Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Subscribe Click on image to enlargeOld Pasadena Management District (OPMD) is proud to announce the commUNITY campaign, featuring an upbeat, radiant sun to symbolize that even in the face of unbelievable hurdles, the Old Pasadena business district continues to shine. A cohesive campaign of posters, window clings, and sidewalk decals greets visitors as they arrive in the district and outlines safe and healthy practices.The Old Pasadena community is a tight-knit, supportive one, encompassing businesspeople who have learned the art of pivoting, adapting, and supporting their fellow merchants since the COVID Safer at Home order was issued in March. Eric Tjahyadi, co-owner/operator of Bone Kettle, sums up this district-wide fortitude so well: “Our neighborhood of business operators supports one another and continues to show so much heart, courage, and passion even in the darkest hours; we love that we can lean on each other as a community to be one another’s resources and show support. There is a tremendous level of camaraderie that I have not seen in other communities.”To highlight this solidarity and resilience, dozens of Old Pasadena businesses display the radiant commUNITY sun graphic in their windows, while key intersections throughout the neighborhood showcase the artwork on sidewalk decals. Additionally, the campaign features safety signage in city parking garages to remind guests to be safe and maintain adequate distancing while visiting the area.The Old Pasadena community extends far beyond business owners and their employees. The continued support from residents and faithful patrons to the historic district is integral to weathering this unprecedented period. Every take-out and curbside order, gift card purchase, and in-person visit is critical to keeping doors open and livelihoods afloat. Beginning in May, OPMD created several initiatives to reward this ongoing patronage, including the #OnlyinOldPas gift card giveaways on Instagram and the purchase of 40 meals each week from district restaurants to help the Pasadena Senior Center feed vulnerable seniors.“We felt strongly that we as an organization needed to boost promotional support to our businesses while simultaneously encouraging city residents to continue to visit our district,” says Janet Swartz, OPMD’s Director of Marketing and Events. “In turn, these initiatives had the wonderful impact of strengthening the solidarity we feel here and further cultivated this sense of unity and togetherness – we knew that was an important aspect to spotlight with our new campaign.”Finally, to support Old Pasadena restaurants’ efforts toward outdoor dining, the campaign comes to life in a very tangible way with the installation of commUNITY Dining in three locations along Big Bang Theory Way. This communal dining space is for anyone looking for a socially distanced area to enjoy a take-out meal or coffee from any of the neighborhood’s nearly 200 restaurants. This effort serves as an additional support to the many restaurants that couldn’t take advantage of street dining due to their location and logistics. The seating areas are maintained from 11:30am-8pm each day with continuous sanitizing. Visit in the evenings for an especially scenic experience under the café lighting spanning the length of the historic alleyway.OPMD continues to look for ways to bolster, unify, and sustain the more than 300 businesses that call home the 22-block historic district. Follow Old Pasadena on Instagram and Facebook @oldpasadena and subscribe to the weekly Only in Old Pas newsletter to keep apprised of new initiatives and ways that you can continue to support Old Pasadena businesses.

Free ‘Three Little Pigs’ opera performance set for Saturday

first_imgLocal News Previous article012519_Permian_Tascosa BBall_Boys_07Next articleMosh For Paws Benefit Show Digital AIM Web Support From left, straw pig Veronica Miller, mother pig Deyanira Carrasco, stick pig Kaylee Tucker, and brick pig Destinee Altier huddle at the beginning of the production. The University of Texas of the Permian Basin Vocal Ensemble staged a musical production of the Three Little Pigs at the First United Methodist Church for ECISD second graders Thursday. An opera version of “The Three Little Pigs” will be performed free at 2 p.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, 415 N. Lee Ave. Thousands of Ector County Independent School District second graders had a chance to view the production Thursday and today that is performed by 13 University of Texas Permian Basin students as a joint production of UTPB and First United Methodist Church Odessa. Minister of Music and Evangelism David Corman said the opera has elements of Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story. It’s based on Mozart’s music from “The Magic Flute,” which is teamed with Corman’s libretto, or words. TAGS  WhatsApp “Of course, I used that music with my libretto but we do insert kind of a funny thing at the end,” Corman said, where the cast dances to the LL Cool J version of Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf. He added that he staged “The Three Little Pigs” a few years ago for about 2,700 second graders in Midland. “I’ve revised it a little bit, so this one is for every second grader in Odessa. We have, I believe, right at 2,500 over six performances. It’s like herding cats, but that’s fine,” Corman said. He wanted the students to experience something really funny and beautiful at the same time to give them a memorable experience. “The Three Little Pigs has always been one of my favorite children’s stories. It’s funny, but it has some kind of dark elements, too — the big bad wolf …,” Corman said. “I have four children and now two grandchildren. It’s a story I that I told a lot at bedtime,” he added. “I remember them as little 2 and 3 year olds singing ‘Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf’ as one of our songs that we did, so I guess that’s the real genesis of it,” Corman said. UTPB student Beau Roland is the narrator. DeYanira Carrasco-Gomez and Jacob Corman portray the mother pig and big bad wolf, respectively. Carrasco-Gomez said the students love participating in the production. “I feel like at this age they’re finally coming to understand a lot of things. They’re still young children, but they’re understanding adult-type things. There’s a lot of stuff going on that they might not entirely understand politically and stuff like that. This show has aspects of that, but it also shows people coming together from two different sides. It helps them understand that maybe unity is what we need and it kind of does it in a fun way to where they can play along. But maybe some of them are going to go home and think about this and understand that we come together in the end and we unite and care for one another,” she said. Corman, an adjunct professor of voice at UTPB, said that plays into one of the reasons he wanted to put the opera on. “This is this is one of the most beautiful places in Odessa just from an architectural point of view, whatever one’s faith system is. … In the old terms … sanctuary meant that people were safe. I wanted this place to be a safe place, a fun place, a place of peace and love and reaching out to those little guys so there is a memory that is really up, joyful, fun and not negative,” Corman said.
