Enter Your Email Address Companies don’t often post a sharp rise in sales and see their share prices slump. But that’s exactly what happened to Pets At Home (LSE: PETS) Tuesday. Speaking to the BBC’s Today programme, chief executive Peter Pritchard described the pets market as incredibly strong. He added that pets have played an important part in helping people through lockdown. Yet the Pets at Home share price crashed 10% in morning trading.Pritchard said: “The last six months of trading have been like no other during my 10 years in the business.” I can certainly understand that.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…Many business have been severely hampered by lockdowns. But Pets at Home continued trading as an essential business, through its supply of pet products and healthcare services. And that helped the company to an impressive first half. Total revenue rose by 5.1%, with like-for-like revenue up 5.3%. That was weighted heavily towards the second quarter, with Q2 like-for-like revenue up 12.7%. And, like many in 2020, online sales helped push what the firm calls omnichannel revenue up 65.8%.Sales up, profits flatSo why did Pets at Home shares fall? It seems the healthy growth in revenue isn’t feeding through to the bottom line. At least not yet. The company recorded a fall in underlying pre-tax profit of 5.1%. To offset that overall figure though, the second quarter saw a 43.7% rise. The first half was, even for an essential business, a very tough one as the pandemic spread. What might the full year look like? Pets at Home says of its outlook: “We now anticipate full-year underlying pre-tax profit to be in line with the prior year.”I think that’s pretty good. But I suspect it’s not what shareholders had hoped for. Not when the FTSE 250 firm’s shares have been trouncing the index. And not after September’s trading update had sent Pets at Home shares soaring 28% in just one day. But, even if Tuesday’s share price dip might look disappointing on the face of it, 2020’s bigger picture is anything but. The Pets at Home share price is still up a whopping 40% year-to-date.Pets at Home shares soaringI see this kind of think happen all the time. Investors see a stock doing extraordinarily well and, understandably, would like a piece of it. But that can lead to over-optimism on snippets of good news. And, conversely, if the company posts results that don’t exceed expectations, we see a sell-off. Still, the effect appears modest for Pets at Home. And I suspect anyone who’s held the shares all year will still be happy with their success.What would I do now? I think Pets at Home is a fundamentally good company. For one thing, it has modest net debt of £50.9m. That’s only around 0.4x EBIDTA, which is nicely healthy. And it has plenty of undrawn lending facilities. But there’s a combination of two things that keep me from buying.One is an erratic earnings history, with earnings per share this year expected to be lower than in 2017. The other is the valuation of Pets at Home shares. We’re looking at a forward P/E of around 30. I’m just not sufficiently confident in the company’s growth prospects to pay for that kind of valuation. I’ll keep my eye open for dips, mind.

Magali Harvey scores Try of the Tournament contender vs France

first_imgSunday Aug 17, 2014 Magali Harvey scores Try of the Tournament contender vs France The Women’s Rugby World Cup Final between Canada and England kicks off shortly, so here’s a look at the unbelievable try that Magali Harvey scored in the semi-final against France. The flyer turned 24 just yesterday, and will be looking to celebrate in style in her country’s first ever final.Canada have played in all of the Women’s Rugby World Cup’s, but had previously never placed better than 4th overall. Their victory over hosts France wouldn’t have been popular with the locals, but the manner in which Canada have played, and this try was scored, will ensure they have support in the final against England.The two sides are evenly matched, having met in the group stages on August 5th, drawing 13-13.This try is, dare we say it, Jason Robinson-esque, with that acceleration, balance and final step something to behold. As if sprinting 80 metres wasn’t enough, she then converted the kick too.View England vs Canada final preview, PLUS Best 5 Tries from the semi finals stageEngland vs Canada Semi Final previewA selection of the best five tries scored in the semi finals stage of the Women’s Rugby World Cup ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Harefield Road East – A planted courtyard sits centrally within the ground floor plan, offering an integral urban oasis to a South London semi-detached house. The client, a family of three, had just returned after living for a period of time in Sydney when Gruff Architects were approached to refurbish and extend their Victorian semi in South London. Keen to recreate the benefits of the outside lifestyle and warmer climate they had experienced abroad, whilst incorporating their mixed heritage into the design, the client instilled Malaysian, British and Australian influences into the brief. Set in the Brockley Conservation Area, the extension includes a kitchen, utility and dining space for the family and focuses on creating a connection to the leafy garden.Save this picture!© French + TyeGruff’s design focuses on a centrally planted courtyard which sits between the original house and new extension, connecting the two elements together and bringing natural light and soft planting into the heart of the building. Working with Michael Coley Garden Design, the planting features neutral, evergreen and hardy plants for longevity as well as larger pieces to add focus, such as the tree fern. Toward the rear of the extension, a section of corner glazing further punctures the centre of the building, allowing direct sunlight and more visible planting to enter the floor plan. Study spaces, mirrored either side of the internal courtyard, look out onto the planting and provide a visual relationship between both the existing and new architecture as well as the internal and external environments all year round, without the need to open doors or windows. In warm weather, however, the timber glazing allows for the space to be opened up to the planted areas and encourages cross-ventilation to naturally cool the home.Save this picture!© French + TyeSave this picture!© French + TyeA combination of natural timbers, exposed grey brickwork and pockets of glazing appear both inside and out, blurring the thresholds and creating a calming environment. New openings combined with glazed partitions, create a light and inviting environment across the whole house and a statement pitched roof frames a full-length flat rooflight to the ridge of the extension, creating views up to the sky from within the dining area.Save this picture!© French + TyeProject gallerySee allShow lessGrand Central Saint-Lazare Station / Ferrier Marchetti StudioSelected ProjectsBig Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston Headquarters / Agency-AgencySelected Projects Share Harefield Road East House / Gruff ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931826/harefield-road-east-house-gruff Clipboard “COPY” Photographs:  French + Tye Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© French + Tye+ 23Curated by Paula Pintos Share Houses Projects Area:  180 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•London, United Kingdom 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931826/harefield-road-east-house-gruff Clipboard Photographs Main Contractor: “COPY” MPRM United Kingdom ArchDaily Manufacturers: Petersen Tegl, Microstation, Polished Concrete Co, Sollex, VMZINC Year: last_img read more

Latte levy could be used to raise major sums for goods causes, CAF suggests

first_imgLatte levy could be used to raise major sums for goods causes, CAF suggests Advertisement 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. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis16 Charities Aid Foundation is calling on the government to consider applying some of the proceeds of the proposed latte levy to support charities with experience of recycling, environmental protection and consumer advice.According to CAF, the levy has the potential to build on the success of the plastic bag levy and raise major sums for good causes. A report published last week by the Environmental Audit Committee stated that 2.5bn takeaway coffee cups are thrown away each year in the UK, with MPs calling for a 25p levy on the price of a takeaway coffee to reduce the number of cups thrown away. This would be followed by the introduction of a ban on throwaway coffee cups if a target that all takeaway cups are recyclable by 2023 is not met.MPs on the committee have suggested that the levy could lead to a 30% reduction in the use of disposable cups and generate £438 million in revenue, which could be used to fund better recycling facilities. However, CAF is arguing that the impact of the scheme could be increased by applying some of the proceeds to support charities with experience of recycling, environmental protection and consumer advice, harnessing their expertise in recycling and their work changing consumer behaviour.CAF has also estimated that a proposed levy on single-use plastic items could generate at least £1.75 million a day for good causes, if levels of use did not change, based on figures by WRAP, that more than 35 million plastic bottles are used every day in the UK.Even if the number of plastic bottles used every day fell by 85%, similar to the reduction in use of plastic bags, CAF has estimated that this could still generate more than quarter of a million pounds a day (£262,000) for good causes.Sir John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, said:“The reaction to the idea of 25p added to the price of your takeaway coffee shows that people support levies and consumer charges that are used in a positive way.  Ministers should look not only to develop better recycling facilities but also harness the excellent charities working for the public good, particularly in areas like the environment, recycling and consumer advice to achieve the greatest impact from any levy.“Combined with a general levy on all single-use plastic items, suggested by CAF last year, these levies can bring about positive behaviour change and generate millions of pounds to change our communities for the better.”  134 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis16 Melanie May | 8 January 2018 | News Tagged with: Charities Aid Foundation Funding plastic bag levy  133 total views,  1 views todaylast_img read more

As researchers, we would encourage institutional donors to be more transparent and open about sharing their financial data.”The Postcode Lottery format was launched in the Netherlands in 1989, to raise money for charitable organisations. In 2005, the success of the Dutch Postcode Lottery prompted Novamedia to launch two more lotteries – People’s Postcode Lottery in Britain and Svenska PostkodLotteriet in Sweden.People’s Postcode Lottery was first piloted in the north of England. Three years later, in 2008, it was launched in Scotland and since 2010 it has been operating throughout Britain.In 2016, the Deutsche Postcode Lotterie was launched throughout Germany, followed by the Norsk Postkodelotteri in Norway in 2018. Novamedia and the Postcode Lotteries has been named the biggest charity donor in Europe and the second biggest in the world, in the latest charity donor rankings.The annual Giving List by business newspaper City AM has revealed that Novamedia – the creator and owner of the Postcode Lottery format – is Europe’s biggest private charity donor.The list, which was compiled by independent researchers at nfpSynergy, also shows that Novamedia is the world’s second largest private charity funder. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation topped this year’s global list.The global ranking shows the Gates Foundation donated USD 3.77bn, followed by Novamedia / Postcode Lotteries, on USD 881.6m. The Walton Family Foundation was third on USD 595.9m.The European list has the UK’s Wellcome Trust in second place on USD 579m and Switzerland’s OAK Foundation in third place on USD 357.2m.The news comes just weeks after People’s Postcode Lottery, which operates in Britain, revealed that its players have now raised more than £500 million for charities and good causes.Novamedia is a social enterprise, headquartered in Amsterdam, which uses its investments in lotteries, media and publishing to contribute to a fairer, greener world.Clara Govier, Managing Director of People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “This research demonstrates the extraordinary success of the Postcode Lottery format. Charities across Britain and beyond are winning thanks to the support of our millions of players in England, Scotland and Wales.“We are proud to be part of the Novamedia family and our sister lotteries in the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and Norway, are also performing strongly. Together, our players are helping to achieve positive change for people and planet.”The researchers who compiled the Giving List have called for greater transparency from major donors.Joe Saxton, the founder of nfpSynergy, said: Advertisement Novamedia & Postcode Lotteries named Europe’s biggest charity donor Tagged with: People’s Postcode Lotterylast_img read more

Charter school teachers strike and win

first_imgAfter nine days on the picket line, teachers and specialists at Ohio’s first unionized charter school have their first contract. Management at Summit Academy in Parma, a suburb of Cleveland, agreed to the Ohio Federation of Teachers’ key demand: language limiting class size and requiring two adults to be present in every classroom. (tinyurl.com/y4w63odv)These amendments will make it possible to give the school’s 200 special needs children a quality education. Ranging from first graders up to high school seniors, their challenges include autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and severe learning disabilities. When the school opened, class sizes were held to 18 students and there were two teachers or other education professionals in every room. But as workers who quit were not replaced, the for-profit school failed to maintain those standards.While strikers were not demanding a pay increase, the contract includes language to reopen discussions on pay later in the year. Salaries range from $31,000 to $40,000 a year, which makes it difficult to retain staff and prevent turnover. Strikers recognize that this affects the quality of education they can provide.Poor sanitation and building maintenance were also strike issues, and the union won a commitment to address them. In the days leading up to the contract vote March 1, teachers maintained high spirits on all-day picket lines. There was plenty of chanting and regular “airing of grievances.” Honks of support were constant. Parma is home to many autoworkers and other union members. Parents supported the strikers.Now workers at a second Summit Academy location, this time in Painesville, have voted to unionize.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
