Lloyds Development Capital (LDC) announced the purchase from Icelandic investment vehicle Arev yesterday, but later pulled the statement from its website. However, the deal is believed to be going ahead.Mountain Warehouse, which has 100 branches across the UK, is majority-owned by the chain’s founder and managing director Mark Neale. Its profit rose 74 per cent to £6.2m last year, on the back of sales worth £45.5m. The retailer added 30 branches in 2009 and plans for similar growth this year. Arev bought into the company in 2007 when it backed a management buyout, but has been hit hard by the credit crunch. Arev and sister company Kcaj sold their stakes in retailer Ghost, dressmaker Hardy Amies and maternitywear chain Blooming Marvellous, after all three fell into administration. LDC has £2bn invested in up and coming projects, mostly in the UK.

1 big risk to UK shares in 2021 and how I’d invest for great returns anyway

first_img1 big risk to UK shares in 2021 and how I’d invest for great returns anyway Image source: Getty Images. Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares While going over updates for FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares earlier today, I found a curious trend. These UK shares are some of the biggest gainers. But their updates aren’t great.In fact, some of them are still quite weak. I’m talking about stocks like luxury giant Burberry, publisher Pearson, and retailer WH Smith. 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…So why are their prices rising? The big risk for UK sharesI think the combination of growing investor confidence and their changed assessment of company performance is the reason. So, the fact that these companies’ revenues are down, but less so than in their previous updates, is seen as positive. And there’s no doubt that progress is being made. But I think it’s important to remember that we are still living in a pandemic and it will be some time before we can truly claim victory over it. Until such time, there is still the risk of Covid-19 spreading, especially with new variants around. The longer the pandemic drags on, the worse it will be for business, making many companies and share prices increasingly vulnerable. How I’d buy UK shares nowDoes that mean we should refrain from buying the affected UK shares?I think there’s still much value to many of these stocks and they aren’t going under in a hurry. So the short answer is, no. At the same time, it’s important to keep in mind that these stocks aren’t exactly financially strong right now either. I’d buy some of them — in fact, I already have. Safer growth optionsBut I’d also hold shares with a high likelihood of growth and less risk. This will ensure that at least part of my portfolio is firmly on the growth path, even if the rest might struggle because of any untoward event. Some of the shares that did well during 2020, will continue to do this year, in my view. And there’s plenty of choice. FTSE 100 healthcare companies like AstraZeneca and Hikma Pharmaceuticals are examples. Support products and services providers like hygienist Rentokil Initial and face-mask and gloves distributor Bunzl are others. Ensuring some passive incomeI’d also ensure that there are income-generating UK shares in my portfolio. This will ensure passive income (as companies increasingly start paying dividends) at the very least, even if the overall market is indifferent. The catch though, is this. I want to buy UK shares with relatively stable dividends. The large-scale disruption last year led to dwindling in dividends across the board. Some companies were exceptions however, and I’d consider them as potential income investments. The FTSE 100 industrial metals miner Rio Tinto is an example of a stock that not just continued to pay dividends, it also paid an interim dividend. With a yield close to 5%, it’s definitely one to consider. National Grid, with an even better yield of 5.6%, is another one, as are other FTSE 100 utilities.  See all posts by Manika Premsingh I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

It held the fifth meeting of its current phase (ARCIC III) in an atmosphere of shared prayer and friendship at Villa Palazzola, the summer residence of the Venerable English College in Rome, 28 April–4 May 2015. Members of the Commission are grateful to the staff of Villa Palazzola for the warm welcome extended to them.The mandate for this third phase of ARCIC is both to promote the reception of the previous work of the Commission by presenting this as a corpus and to explore “The Church as Communion, local and universal, and how in communion the local and universal Church come to discern right ethical teaching”. To this end the Commission’s work centred on examining two draft texts which had been prepared by sub-committee drafting groups since its previous meeting in Vuleka Centre, Botha’s Hill, South Africa.The first of these draft texts considered was material to present the five agreed statements of ARCIC II so that they can be received by the respective Communions. This consists of individual introductions to each statement, whose text is included, and a brief consideration of the responses each document engendered, short essays concerning theological method and themes running through the documents, suggesting directions for future work. This work has made good progress and it is hoped that it will shortly be ready for publication.The second text considered was a draft document responding to the ecclesiological element of the mandate, that is, an examination of the structures of our two traditions which facilitate communion within and among the local and regional and universal dimensions of the Church.On Thursday 30 April the Commission travelled to Rome for a private audience with Pope Francis. The Pope encouraged the Commission in its work, and in the context of contemporary persecution of Christians noted, “There is a strong bond that already unites us which goes beyond all divisions.” Archbishop Bernard Longley thanked Pope Francis for the inspiration and leadership given by both him and Archbishop Justin Welby, “especially by your common commitment to seek justice for those who suffer exploitation or neglect.” Archbishop David Moxon cited the draft ARCIC II volume, and acknowledged with gratitude Pope Francis’s emphasis on the preaching of the Gospel, the simplicity of his personal lifestyle, his stress on ministry to the poor and marginalized, the positive role he has played in international reconciliation. He concluded by saying that all of these have “played their part in commending the ministry of the Bishop of Rome to Christians throughout the world”.Later that day they celebrated the Eucharist at the Anglican Centre in Rome, which generously hosted the Commission for lunch and for two working sessions, during which it heard a paper on sensus fidei (the sense of faith) of all the baptised, and case studies on slavery. From there the group visited the Venerable English College, where presentations of the Commission’s work were made to the student body with time for questions and answers. Members then participated in Vespers and much appreciated the opportunity to join students and staff for dinner.On Friday 1 May members welcomed Bishop Mark Santer and Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Co-Chairs at the last time ARCIC met at Palazzola. The special guests led an informal session in which they recounted some of the narrative of ARCIC II under their leadership. They remained until the end of the meeting.The Commission welcomed Canon John Gibaut as the new Anglican Co-Secretary, succeeding Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan. The Commission also extended its thanks to Fr Norman Tanner SJ, who participated as a consultant.The next meeting will take place near Toronto in May 2016, when the Commission will take up a reworked draft of an ecclesiological statement comparing the instruments of communion of each tradition.APPENDIXMembers of ARCIC III present at the meetingCo-ChairsThe Most Revd Bernard Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham, EnglandThe Most Revd Sir David Moxon, Archbishop of Canterbury’s Representative to the Holy SeeRoman CatholicsThe Revd Robert Christian OP, St Albert Priory, Oakland, California, USAThe Revd Canon Adelbert Denaux, Professor Em., Brugge, BelgiumMost Revd Arthur Kennedy, Auxiliary Bishop of Boston, USAProfessor Paul D.

Apopka group makes ‘beauty from ashes’ through kindness with 9/11 Beautification…

Clerk’s Office hosts Domestic Violence workshopNext articleAAA: Florida gas prices dropped 4 cents last week Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! From The Apopka Citizen Police Academy Alumni AssociationThe Apopka Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association (ACPAAA) completed the next step of their 9/11 Beautification Project at the Apopka Police Department (APD) last week, much to the APD’s appreciation.The idea for the 9/11 Beautification Project started last month, on September 11th, when ACPAAA wanted to do something extra special for APD. Most of ACPAAA’s support efforts with the APD are typically quite engaging and hands-on, such as the finger printing event, Shop-With-A-Cop, Fall Festivals, Cops & Bobbers, and such, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, they have not been able to volunteer in the usual way. As a result, members decided to something different, landing on the great idea to beautify the officers’ work entrance as well as the medians in the parking lot. And that’s just what they did, starting on September 11 and continuing through last Thursday, October 15.Three motivated ACPAAA members weeded, trimmed hedges and picked up trash on the morning of 9/11, and then seven additional community-serving members continued the project last week. Early on the morning of October 15, with their gloves, rakes, and shovels, the small but mighty team of ACPAAA members weeded APD’s flower beds, trimmed more shrubs, and spread 100 bags of mulch.ACPAAA and the APD would like to thank Carters ACE Hardware  and Lumber of Apopka for furnishing 60 of those bags of mulch as well as paint, and expressed more appreciation for Linear Patch on Plymouth Sorrento road for donating the beautiful plants. Gratitude goes out to the many additional local businesses in the Apopka community who have also been extremely supportive to the ACPAA, as well as to all the other non-profit organizations in the community.Charlotte White, President of the ACPAAA, shared how heartwarming it was to have the APD officers and staff thank them for all the hard work. From “Thank you for making our work environment inviting!” to “This looks so nice, it makes our building so pretty!”, the sentiment expressed meant a lot to the beautification team, knowing they helped brighten up the work space of police officers that brighten our lives everyday with their service in our community. It’s no surprise that ACPAAA has committed to continuing to help keep the APD beautiful going forward as well.APD’s Facebook page thanked ACPAA one more time, writing “… and for the ACPAAA members who dedicated their time to show how committed they are to our department and our city. Thank you ALL!”. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Anti-imperialist seminar honors Chávez

first_imgWW’s Berta Joubert-Ceci, right, makes her contribution tothe Seminar on Parties and the New Society in Mexico City.Mexico City — The recent death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez Frias became a central focus for the hundreds of progressives and revolutionaries from all over Latin America, about half from Mexico, and from every continent who gathered in Mexico City in mid-March for the 17th annual Seminar on “Parties and the New Society.”The Workers Party of Mexico (PT), which has representatives in the Mexican Parliament, hosted the seminar, as it has for the past 17 years. The participants represented a broad spectrum of political tendencies, ranging from revolutionary communist to reformist, but all opposed the neoliberal policies imposed by the imperialists and especially U.S. domination of South America and the Caribbean.Representatives of Cuba, Venezuela, Vietnam and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea received an especially warm reception from the participants. The PT president, Prof. Dip. Alberto Anaya, expressed solidarity with all those combatting imperialist domination, from elected Latin American officials to the DPRK, and said he felt Mexicans were under no threat from the DPRK’s nuclear weapons.International Secretaries Rodrigo Cabezas (left) of the PSUV and Carolus Wimmer of the PCV support Nicolas Maduro for next Venezuelan president; with WW’s John Catalinotto (center).Speakers at the gathering presented a summary of the papers they published for the event — most limited to 10 minutes but with a few major presentations. Papers covered the world economic crisis, the progressive response to imperialist domination in many Latin American and Caribbean countries, and new experiences in organizing. There was also a remarkable contribution from Indigenous organizations and a greater presence of women than at past seminars.It was a sign of the enormous influence of Chávez that nearly every speaker opened his or her talks by acknowledging his contributions to the people’s struggles in Latin America and the world, with a greeting of condolence for the Venezuelan delegates and a solidarity salute to the continuing Bolivarian revolution.The seminar ended with a special meeting featuring Rodrigo Cabeza, international secretary of Chávez’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), who expressed confidence in the Venezuelan people’s determination to continue the revolution that Chávez was leading.United for ChávezAll the left and revolutionary political parties in Venezuela — including the Communist Party (PCV), the Nation for All (PPT) and others — are supporting the election of the PSUV candidate and acting President Nicolas Maduro for president in the April 14 elections.One of many examples of contributions to the women’s struggle was that of Blanca Flor Bonilla from the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front of El Salvador, who gave an historical overview of the participation of women in the struggles there in the early 1900s.There were also participants from Canada and the United States. The only U.S. political tendency was Workers World Party, represented by WW editorial staff members Berta Joubert-Ceci and John Catalinotto. Both made contributions to the discussion.Joubert-Ceci, who is Puerto Rican, while honoring the great contribution of women activists to the organizational success of the seminar, painted a vivid picture of the difficult situation for all workers in the U.S. and especially for women and workers of color. She appealed for international solidarity from the other delegations, with an effort to coordinate international actions by the working class.Catalinotto presented a synopsis of the points Fred Goldstein makes in his book, “Capitalism at a Dead End,” which argues the impossibility of a normal recovery cycle for capitalism. Because of this impossibility, workers’ parties — despite present ideological and political differences — need to prepare over the long term for a revolutionary struggle for power.The PT distributed five volumes in Spanish of the selected works of Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, three of the proponent of “market socialism” Deng Xiaoping, and three of German revolutionary leader Rosa Luxemburg to all participants.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
