TRADER OF THE YEAR | The Shortlist Day 3

first_img AT the top of the tree, trading is all about talent. There’s an abundance of it ?on our shortlist, added to a good deal of nerve and nous. Our top five between them manage billions and have made huge returns in choppy markets. Whatever is happening out there, you can make money. This lot prove it. Don’t miss the City event of the year – get online now and book your table for the City A.M. Awards on Thursday 28 October 2010 at Grange St Paul’s Hotel, London EC4. www.CityAMAwards.comJAMES BERGER, GLGThe youngest man on our shortlist at just 29, Berger started his career at JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs before joining GLG in 2005 to work on the European Opportunity Fund. A gross return of 15.5 per cent for 2008 brought him attention and won him fans in the City. With his friend and mentor Markus Mez, who he first worked with at Goldman, he is one half of “a star duo”, says a fund manager. One to watch.PHILIPPE JABRE, JABRE CAPITAL PARTNERSA record £750,000 FSA fine saw Jabre leave the City for Geneva in 2006, where he wasted no time setting up Jabre Capital Partners. He says that living in Lebanon during the civil war of the 70s helped him keep his cool during the financial crisis, and he made a killing by shorting HBOS. What a former colleague calls his “animal instincts” helped his flagship fund recover from a 36 per cent loss in 2008 to make an 85 per cent return in 2009.CRISPIN ODEY, ODEY ASSET MANAGEMENT“He’s absolute class, he called everything pretty right,” said one person who nominated Odey, and it’s hard to argue. He was one of the few to spot the weakness in the banking sector and his fund made £55.3m in 2007/8, with Odey himself taking half the profits. And then he saw the potential for growth in agricultural commodities and made another killing there. His judgment is so widely trusted that he now has a whopping £5bn under management.MIKE PLATT, BLUECRESTHe’s been called a “modern-day Medici” for his patronage of the arts – think crucified gorillas – but more telling is the description from a friend that he’s “a trader who puts his money where his mouth is”; Platt is famous for investing heavily in his own funds. And well he might. His flagship fund has performed every year since it launched in 2000, including a solid 2008, when it was up 6 per cent. It was up a truly impressive 41 per cent in 2009 and has continued to perform strongly so far in 2010. One of the biggest hedge fund characters.ALAN HOWARD, BREVAN HOWARDTrue, he has upped sticks and moved to Switzerland, but Alan Howard still makes our list for his phenomenal performance this year, when the fund that he co-founded in 2003 was up 19 per cent. It grew to become the fourth-biggest in the world, with $31bn (about £20bn) under management. A former Salomon Brothers bond trader and a keen supporter of the Conservative party, Howard’s personal wealth grew by 133 per cent over the year to £875m. Which makes him a dollar billionaire, and the 556th richest person in the world. whatsapp Tags: NULL TRADER OF THE YEAR | The Shortlist Day 3 More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her whatsapp Wednesday 1 September 2010 8:27 pm Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Sharelast_img read more

Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge! Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! The trend to move away from using cash is problematic for FTSE Small Cap stock De La Rue (LSE: DLAR). The company derives a big chunk of its revenue printing cash for countries around the world. And that line of business may be falling out of fashion. The long-term trend for using cash isn’t the friend of De La Rue.Mixed fortunes for this small-cap stockToday’s half-year results report for the period to 26 September reveals 73% of the company’s revenue came from its currency division. However, the process of making physical money produced a pre-tax loss of £5.7m. But a profitable operation in the area of Authentication contributed to offsetting that loss to produce an overall pre-tax gain of £2.5m.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…And the full-year results released in June revealed a similar outcome. Indeed, the currency operation made a loss and other divisions saved the day to produce an overall profit for the company. All that effort and resource used to generate a big turnover in Currency only succeeded in worsening the profit outcome for De La Rue. It’s a dire situation for any business to find itself in.Needless to say, the company is engaged in a turnaround strategy, which it announced early in the year. But it seems the troublesome currency division is holding back the profitable areas of the business. Nevertheless, De La Rue raised almost £93m net by issuing new shares in July. And the directors reckon the money strengthened the balance sheet and helps the company to move forward and deliver its turnaround plan.Strong order books and positive cash generationIn today’s report, chief executive Clive Vacher said the two ongoing divisions of Authentication and Currency “are performing well.” The order books are “strong” and there have been “a number of important strategic wins in the first half of the year.” Meanwhile, the firm saw “positive” cash generation in H1.And optimistic City analysts have pencilled in an uplift in earnings of just over 30% for the trading year to March 2022. So, with the share price near 169p, that puts the forward-looking earnings multiple at about 11. However, my guess is much of the increase in earnings will likely arise because of cost-cutting efforts and efficiency gains due to the turnaround strategy. And such gains may not be repeatable in years to come.If the authentication business stood alone, I think it would be an attractive enterprise. But the combination with the currency business makes De La Rue unattractive to me. I’ll watch the turnaround process from the sidelines in this case.But I think small-cap investing is still an attractive area of the stock market. One way of allocating part of my portfolio to the sector would be to invest in some of the several small-cap trackers or managed funds available today. Another way would be to keep researching shares until I find a company with more attractive prospects and a reasonable valuation.

Andy Ross owns shares in Reckitt Benckiser. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Unilever.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Andy Ross Why I won’t be rushing to buy Unilever shares Unilever (LSE: ULVR) shares are popular with many UK investors. It’s the biggest company on the FTSE 100 by market capitalisation. It’s a truly international company, even previously having a dual Anglo-Dutch structure. This has now been solidified with a listing just in the UK.There’s a lot to like for investors who want a solid, relatively defensive company, but I’m not so sure it’s a share I want to put my money into. Especially after last week’s results.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…A brief look at the resultsThose results showed that full-year underlying sales rose by 1.9%. The majority of the improvement came from rising volumes rather than price hikes.Underlying operating profits were below what analysts had expected. They rose 0.7%, if exchange rates are included, and decreased by 5.8% if the exchange rates are stripped out.  On the positive side, debt was down, cashflow was up, and the dividend was increased. It went up by 4% in the fourth quarter. Net debt is now equivalent to 1.8 times cash profits, so is well under control.  Commenting on the results, Alan Jope said: “Early in the year, we refocused the business on competitive growth, and the delivery of profit and cash as the best way to maximise value. We have delivered a step change in operational excellence through our focus on the fundamentals of growth. As a result, we are winning market share in over 60% of our business in the last quarter, on the basis of measurable markets.”The pros and cons of investing in Unilever sharesUnilever’s relatively small exposure to cleaning products, especially compared to Reckitt Benckiser, means it has struggled more during the pandemic. Beauty and personal care products make up a larger part of its sales. They account for about 41% of the total and haven’t been so much in demand as customers stay at home. Unilever does have strong brands, growing international markets and strong environmental, social, and governance (ESG) credentials. The ESG focus could attract future investment, as this is becoming a more important investing criterion for many institutional investors.The company has also identified areas it wants to offload, such as its tea business. This streamlining will allow it to focus its huge marketing budget on the brands that will deliver higher growth, and margins.Overall, as I’m looking at shares that will increase my passive income in future years, while also boosting the capital growth of my portfolio, I just don’t see Unilever shares fitting the bill. Its growth is sluggish—that was the case even before the pandemic. Also, the shares trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of around 17, so aren’t cheap. I don’t think management is doing enough to boost margins. So far I don’t think the strategy is either working or moving fast enough.So, even after the recent share price fall, and despite the company having many strengths, I’m not tempted to buy Unilever shares.  last_img read more

Quins look to build on winning form

first_imgRory Clegg starts at fly-halfLast week’s win at the Stoop saw Quins return to winning ways. The victory not only saw them back in the top 6 of the Aviva Premiership Rugby table (currently sitting in 5th) but also continue an impressive run of form, which sees the London side unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 games in all competitions.Director of Rugby, Conor O’Shea has made a number of changes to the side that defeated Sale last week at the Stoop.After impressing against the Stockport side, the pack remains unchanged. Joe Marler and James Johnston link either side of Joe Gray in the front row, with Ollie Kohn and Pete Browne joining in the second row. Maurie Fa’asavalu, Will Skinner and Captain Chris Robshaw make up the back row.Last week’s Man of the Match, Rory Clegg continues at fly-half, after Nick Evans was ruled out for a number of weeks with a hand injury which he picked up at training. With Danny Care back on International duty, and Karl Dickson ruled out with injury, Dave Moore makes his first Premiership start at scrum-half.Further injuries to Gonzalo Camacho (knee) and George Lowe (shoulder), picked up in last week’s win against Sale, see Ugo Monye moved into inside centre to partner Jordan Turner-Hall.

The site for the Vista North Pearl Condominiums is at the northern end of a large area of former train yards that have been redeveloped over time to create Portland’s newest neighborhood. It is one of the final building locations in the area, surrounded by dense urban fabric on three sides and overlooking the open space of Fields Park and the Willamette River to the east. The building responds to the duality of its context with a richly textured composition of broad decks on the east and west sides that open to uninterrupted views of the West Hills and Cascade Mountains beyond. On the north and south, the building has a taut skin of dark gray panels and regularly spaced windows that reflects the character of the neighborhood and its industrial past. At an urban level, the five-story podium base speaks to the typical low-rise fabric that is the historic scale of this district, while the 21-story tower meets city goals for higher density residences in this neighborhood.Save this picture!© Lincoln BarbourSave this picture!Type tower planSave this picture!© Lincoln BarbourResponding to Fields Park, the building steps back to create a generously planted fifth level Community Terrace, a vertical extension of the park’s green spaces. From this rises a subtly shifting facade of resident deck spaces that climb the tower of the building above. Rainwater from the building is collected and treated in the expansive planters on this terrace. Conceptually, the decks serve as a series of “stacked porches” that focus residents to the landscape at different scales both near and far. Deeply recessed and angled deck dividers animate the intensity of light and shadow and provide private outdoor rooms for the residents to enjoy. The undulation of the façade is inspired by the confluent patterns on the surface of the Willamette River. The east/west facades are expressive and sculpted with brightly colored cementitious panels serving as a backdrop for the plants, umbrellas, and other elements of urban outdoor living.  Residences are designed to prioritize access to views and light. Primary living spaces feature generous windows and large sliding doors that open to the decks. We detailed the interior to be well-crafted but minimal allowing the distant views and changing light to remain the focus. To maximize interior space, the structural columns hug the exterior wall leaving units column-free from the perimeter to the concrete core of the building. The decks cantilever over the property line and provide weather coverage for pedestrians at street level.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannSave this picture!© Jeremy BittermannThroughout the building a textural palette of warm and cool tones responds to the exterior shadow play and references Portland’s shifting weather patterns. The main lobby welcomes owners and guests with moments of intense warmth inspired by the sun peeking through the clouds. A brass-clad concierge desk anchors the space with a custom installation of handcrafted glass vessels floating above, a welcoming space in the gray Portland winters. The Vista North Pearl embodies one of Portland’s most distinctive characteristics — easy urban living with a varied outdoor landscape on your doorstep.Save this picture!© Jeremy BittermannProject gallerySee allShow lessOneday Dentistry Share Office / Design m4Selected ProjectsHouse Among Trees / El Sindicato ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Portland, Oregon, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

April 19: Massive call for day of solidarity with Venezuela

first_imgIn Mexico City, Venezuelan and Mexican participants in “The Parties and a New Society” seminar with Berta Joubert-Ceci, center and John Catalinotto, right.Mexico City — A broad spectrum of political parties meeting in Mexico City called for solidarity actions with Venezuela against U.S. attacks, including a day of international solidarity on April 19.The 132 political parties from 40 countries and five continents meeting at the international seminar, “The Parties and a New Society,” taking place in Mexico City on March 12-14, held a news conference to state their solidarity with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela following the March 9 threats made by President Barack Obama.The parties said they “energetically reject” Obama’s “Executive Decree” calling Venezuela “an extraordinary and unusual threat” to the national security of the U.S. They said instead that it was U.S. imperialist aggressions that threatened the national security and sovereignty of Latin America and the Caribbean and to all the peoples of the world, “in its desperate search to maintain its declining hegemony and to control the strategic resources of the planet.”They added that they “stand in militant solidarity with the Venezuelan people and express our firmest and unbounded support for the Bolivarian and Chavista government that is headed by President Nicolás Maduro.”A Workers World Party representative at the seminar, Berta Joubert-Ceci, spoke at the news conference, saying, “It is a great travesty when Obama calls Venezuela a threat, when within the USA every 28 hours a Black person is being killed by governmental or private repressive forces. People in the USA whose lives were saved when they received heating oil from Venezuela, know very well who their enemy is. It is not Venezuela. It is their own government who denies full access to basic human needs. They and thousands of people in the USA stand in solidarity with the Bolivarian government and will do whatever is necessary to expose the USA’s lies and defend Venezuela!”Call for solidarity actions April 19Prensa Latina reports that on March 16, the São Paulo Forum working group, which often meets following the seminar, and which gathers Latin American political parties, joined the condemnation and called for the following actions:An anti-imperialist summit of Latin American popular organizations and movements in Managua, Nicaragua, on March 20 and 21.A “World Great Day of Solidarity with Venezuela and Condemnation of U.S. Intervention” on April 19 with the slogan “Peoples of the World United on Venezuela.”An extraordinary and extended meeting on April 13 in Caracas to express their support for President Nicolás Maduro and the Venezuelan people.Solidarity with Black Lives Matter movementAt the seminar, the WWP representatives raised a resolution to send “a message of condolence to the families of the African-American and Latino/a victims of police killings in the United States” and “declaring our solidarity with the just struggle of the Black Lives Matter movement for civil and human rights and against impunity” for the police. The resolution received unanimous support from the 132 parties.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

WWP candidates salute Missouri Black students

first_imgThe following is a greeting of congratulations from the presidential campaign of Workers World Party candidates Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly to the Black students at the University of Missouri and their supporters.Monica Moorehead for PresidentA little over 100 miles west of Ferguson, Mo., the Black athletes of University of Missouri’s football team, with support from their white teammates, have sent shockwaves across the U.S. as they have shown the power of united action against racism. Inspired by the strength of a movement that developed rapidly on campus led by Black students, the athletes struck a powerful blow. This blow defeated a university administration that failed to act to stop white supremacist violence against students of color, athletes of color, students and staff. Missouri’s students, following the lead of graduate student Jonathan Butler and other students of color, have shown that if Black Lives don’t matter to universities, then there will be no classes or football. They have forced the resignation of the college president and chancellor and have already inspired mass struggles against racism and other forms of oppression and discrimination at Yale University in Connecticut.Lamont Lilly for Vice PresidentThe Moorehead-Lilly Campaign, launched on the same day as this strike, stands in full solidarity with these inspiring athletes and all the students and supporters who have risked so much to take a stand against racism. We not only salute their victory, but we call on the broad progressive movement to extend a hand of concrete solidarity to this ongoing struggle against racism here and everywhere. We cannot allow any struggle against racism to face isolation! An injury to one is an injury to all!Actions like these remind us all of the power of withholding one’s labor, in this case, the unpaid work of Black college football players and of all the athletes who stand in solidarity with their initiative. In college big-budget athletics, the student-athletes are workers who produce huge profits for universities while receiving no wages. Merely missing one game next weekend would have cost the university $1 million. This made the strike by Black athletes, along with a solidarity strike by Black graduate students and a walkout by faculty, even more powerful. Student athletes, like unemployed youth, need union jobs.The struggle at the University of Missouri is a microcosm of struggles going on across the United States. Graduate students there have waged a unionization drive. Soon-to-be-former Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin had cut women’s access to reproductive health care. Meanwhile, women students face a sexual assault epidemic. These same conditions exist not only at universities across the country, but throughout society, with the police assault on people of color leading the list of injustices.The Moorehead-Lilly Campaign will continue to build solidarity with and spread this struggle among all layers of the diverse working class in the United States for this and future struggles against racism, sexism, homophobia and all forms of oppression and discrimination. Above all, we will fight against the capitalist system that engenders them.See #concernedstudent1950Black Lives Matter!For more information on the Moorehead-Lilly Campaign, visit or call 212-627-2994.WW photos: Brenda RyanFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
