Pain must always come before gain

first_img Share KCS-content Thursday 27 January 2011 9:16 pm whatsapp CREDIT rating agencies have come in for a lot of flak, not least in this newspaper, but yesterday they proved that they can still tell the Emperor it has no clothes. The downgrade of Japan’s credit came as a stark reminder that government debt will be the new sub-prime. It certainly ought to serve as a wake-up call to any politician stupid enough to believe that a country can keep on adding to its national debt without any consequences. Standard & Poor’s, the agency that rightly downgraded Japan for the first time in nine years, blamed a lack of a “coherent strategy” to reform the economy and tackle its liabilities. Quite right – Japan’s decades-long inability to sort itself out is a depressing reminder that even great economic superpowers can go into permanent relative decline if they make the wrong choices. This issue, while fundamental, is never sufficiently reflected upon; the modern political cycle is far too short-termist and parochial for that.Fortunately, the UK is not Japan. Britain is gradually beginning to turn a corner with its budget deficit, even though the national debt is still growing at a sickening rate. The deficit has so far reached £118.4bn in the financial year to date, down £8.4bn from £126.8bn recorded in the same period a year ago. The final, full fiscal year shortfall may end up slightly under the Office for Budget Responsibility’s £148.5bn forecast. But what is starting to rattle some in the gilts markets, however, is the collapsing support for the coalition – Labour is 6 points ahead at 44 per cent in this morning’s YouGov/Sun opinion poll, while the LibDems are languishing at a disastrous 8 per cent. Elevated inflation levels are also putting upwards pressure on gilt yields. Yesterday’s poor consumer confidence figures aren’t helping sentiment towards UK assets either. There is a real risk that the four-year austerity programme mapped out by the coalition will never see the light of day. Labour’s policies are now the most left-wing they have been since the 1980s – though a Prime Minister Ed Miliband would eventually be forced to push through much of the same tightening as the coalition is planning, the rise in Labour’s political fortunes is beginning to make some large global funds nervous. All of this will push up the cost of borrowing for the government and the private sector.Huge reforms – tax, regulatory, spending, welfare, health, education, energy and transport – are needed if Britain is to be brought back to health and become competitive once again. Yet countries are not doomed to decline. One of the greatest structural recovery stories of the past few years is that of Germany. Hermes Fund Managers calculates that since the birth of the euro, unit labour costs in the Eurozone have risen 20 per cent relative to its trading partners. But Germany, almost uniquely, has bucked this trend: it has cut its relative costs by 2 per cent, while Spain and Italy allowed theirs to surge 25 and 34 per cent. This is the main reason why Germany enjoyed a veritable economic boom in 2010. The country’s post-war growth miracle slowed in the late 1970s and the 1980s, before grinding to a halt after reunification in 1989. Its return to success represents a remarkable turnaround. If Germany can do it, so can the UK – and even Japan. But it can’t be done without strong and determined political leadership – and a public that accepts that pain must come before gain.

Why I think JD Sports’ 800% share price growth makes it an undisputed king of retail

first_imgWhy I think JD Sports’ 800% share price growth makes it an undisputed king of retail It seems a day cannot pass without a breaking news story of a well-known high-street retailer steeped in tradition and a mainstay of the British high street now on the brink of collapse and scrambling for rescue deals and bailouts. Mothercare, Toys R Us, Maplin, Poundworld to name a few, these have all fallen foul of the recent changing of the guard as shoppers flock for their plethora of digital devices and shop from the comfort of their own homes rather than brave the high street. Somebody should let JD Sports Fashion (LSE: JD) know what’s happening out there because it is very much bucking the trend.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…Increasing costs & change of spending habitsResearch indicates the top 150 UK retailers have 20% more store space than they need and can afford. Some shops such as Homebase, Mothercare, Carpetright and New Look have done restructuring deals with their landlords, closing hundreds of shops between them.Companies have had to deal with rising costs: researchers at A&M and Retail Economics suggest that during the past five years, companies have had to spend 10.8% more on things such as business rates, increasing wages and rents. And, at the same time, retailers are trying to adapt to rapidly changing shopping habits. Consumers now spend one in every five pounds online – and if businesses are seeing 20% fewer sales on the shop floor as well as their fixed costs rising, then profit margins will be squeezed.Consumers are still shopping, of course. But even with the rise of online platforms, shops need people to walk through the door.Humble beginnings & a meteoric riseA sole store opened in 1981 in the former mill town of Bury. Fast forward 38 years, and there are 2,400 stores in 19 countries, numerous acquisitions (which means JD Group now boasts a portfolio of sport, outdoor and fashion amongst its offerings), not to mention a recent foray into the gym market. In 2019 JD Sports was impressively promoted to the FTSE 100 list of largest businesses in the UK.JD Sports: a growth phenomenonIn the last five years, JD Sports has seen an astounding 800% increase in its share prices, which on the surface of things is quite remarkable. If you take into account revenue and profit increasing year on year despite the acquisitions and forays into new markets, JD Sports’ moniker of “undisputed king of trainers” should probably be changed to “undisputed king of retail”.No one is under the impression that the next five years will mean another 800% increase in share prices as well as further expansion into new markets, but the company must be applauded for its savvy and methodical rise atop a retail minefield.

The Fever-Tree Drinks share price is down 10% today. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images. The AIM stock Fever-Tree Drinks (LSE: FEVR) is one of the worst performers today. The Fever-Tree Drinks share price has fallen 10% as I write, after it released its full-year 2020 results earlier today. Its revenues are down 3%. The mixer drinks manufacturer’s earning per share is down a whole 29% too. Yet, I think the Fever-Tree share price dip is an opportunity to buy the share. Here are two reasons why: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…#1. Future looks better for Fever-Tree DrinksThe foreseeable future looks much better for the company. First, the UK is coming out of lockdown. The UK is Fever-Tree Drinks’ biggest market, accounting for around half its total revenues. It saw a 22% fall in revenues in 2020, which can hopefully be turned around now. As the economy gets back on track, I think it is reasonable to assume an increase in demand for products like alcohol and mixers. They will definitely get a fillip from the reopening of bars and restaurants, which are also a significant source of revenue for the company.In line with this, it expects 12%–16% revenue growth in 2021, which is strong considering that in 2019, the last pre-Covid-19 year, revenue grew by a smaller 10%. #2. Expanding into new marketsWhile this growth can indeed be boosted from the UK’s re-opening, I also like Fever-Tree Drinks’ expansion into new markets. Specifically, the 23% growth in US markets is notable. The US accounts for more than 20% of its revenues already. With the US economy having made a smart comeback now, I reckon this market will continue to show strong growth. Further, 58% growth in the ‘rest of the world’, which means markets other than the UK, US, and Europe, reflects huge potential too. So far, the segment accounts for 10% of revenues but if it continues to expand at this rate, I think we can expect it to become more important in the years to come for the company. What can go wrong for the Fever-Tree Drinks share priceWhile all this bodes well for the Fever-Tree Drinks share price, I think it is important to look at the potential downside to the stock too. First, consider its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 55 times. Despite its strong prospects, I think the ratio is a bit high. Stocks with strong performance in 2020 and continued prospects in 2021, like FTSE 100 miners for instance, are available at lower valuations. Two, the Fever-Tree Drinks share price is prone to volatility. The latest dip is one example, I have written about other instances in the past. Such fluctuations may not be every investor’s cup of tea (or cocktail, in this case). ConclusionThe Fever-Tree Drinks share price has a way of bouncing back. Since the lows of last March, it is up 2.5 times.While there is still much debate about whether we are heading for a slowdown or a boom, there is likely to be undeniable pent-up demand for outside entertainment, with drinks in the mix. I would still buy the stock. 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.

On this day: Shakespeare in love

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. On this day in history: November 28th, 1582William Shakespeare marries Anne HathawayFrom The History ChannelOn this day in 1582, William Shakespeare, 18, and Anne Hathaway, 26, pay a 40-pound bond for their marriage license in Stratford-upon-Avon. Six months later, Anne gives birth to their daughter, Susanna, and two years later, to twins.Anne HathawayLittle is known about Shakespeare’s early life. His father was a tradesman who became an alderman and bailiff, and Shakespeare was baptized in Stratford-upon-Avon on April 26, 1564. Sometime after the birth of his own children, Shakespeare set off for London to become an actor and by 1592 was well established in London’s theatrical world as an actor and playwright. His earliest plays, including The Comedy of Errors and The Taming of the Shrew, were written in the early 1590s. Later in the decade, he wrote tragedies like Romeo and Juliet(1594-1595) and comedies including The Merchant of Venice (1596-1597). His greatest tragedies were written after 1600, including Hamlet (1600-01), Othello(1604-05), King Lear (1605-06), and Macbeth (1605-1606).Shakespeare became a member of the popular theater troupe the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, which later became the King’s Men. The group built and operated the famous Globe Theater in London in 1599. Shakespeare became a major shareholder in the troupe and earned enough money to buy a large house in Stratford in 1597. He retired to Stratford in 1610, where he wrote his last plays, including The Tempest (1611) and The Winter’s Tale (1610-11). Meanwhile, he had written more than 100 sonnets, which were published in 1609. Shakespeare’s plays were not published during his lifetime. After his death, two members of his troupe collected copies of his plays and printed what is now called the First Folio(1623).

Located in the heart of Indonesia’s capital city, Jakarta, this project is surrounded with an inherently congested environment and a limited space to build on. The land itself is rather unique, which is long and situated on a hook of the road junction. We analysed and studied the shape of the space and accumulated all the data needed from our client. With the many demands and necessities from the client, it has become a challenge to integrate their needs with the limited available space and create a functional design. Save this picture!© Mario WibowoBased on the data that we have studied, we finally came to a conclusion to create a design with an elevated structure. The narrow and long site causes a vertical circulation that follows the shape of the land. However, a tall structure on a tight space may result in an immense and overscale front façade, therefore to overcome this problem, a tip of the top section of the façade was cut at an oblique angle to obtain a better observable viewpoint for human scale.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoAs the front façade of the building is facing the east, we designed the window opening in a random order to allow and keep the amount of natural daylight entering the house to a minimum level and reduce excess heat. For the material of the façade, we decided to use an asphalt material/ bitumen which can reduce the heat from the sunlight, entering the house up to 70%. Another benefit of using bitumen is that it requires less care, thus helping our client for a fuss-free and an easy maintenance to the exterior building.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThe staircase which acts as a vertical circulation, is utilized to let the fresh air flowing into the house and maximising the daylight from the skylight above the stairs into the room. The staircase is a non-AC area that directly connects to the outdoor.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoBetween the staircase and the living room at the ground floor, there is a huge sliding door that can be opened or closed, depending on the needs of the user. When the AC is turned on, these sliding panels can be closed to keep the room temperature cool and when it is day-to-day basis, the panels can be opened to generate the cross ventilation through the skylight at the staircase.Save this picture!Section 03The light-coloured furniture and the use of white oak throughout the interior are deliberately emphasized so that the house feels less crowded. The dark-coloured floor tile is also preferred to create an ambience that is comfortable and spacious.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoProject gallerySee allShow lessMica-Bar / 3andwich Design / He Wei StudioSelected ProjectsChangchun Culture of Water Ecology Park / W&R GROUPSelected Projects Share Year: last_img read more

Economic Development is Focus of Upcoming Indiana Ag Forum

first_img Economic Development is Focus of Upcoming Indiana Ag Forum Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Economic Development is Focus of Upcoming Indiana Ag Forum By Andy Eubank – Mar 3, 2015 SHARE 2015 ForumThis year there will be a focus on agriculture’s role in spurring local economic development when the Indiana Soybean Alliance and other partners present the annual Livestock, Forage and Grain Forum. The event is Monday, March 16, at the Indianapolis Convention Center.“We are inviting local economic development officials,” explained Jane Ade Stevens, CEO of ISA. “We are inviting local leaders to the forum this year, and help people and farmers understand that our rural communities and the success of our state is about our agriculture. It is about our farmers, our grain industry, our livestock industry and our energy industry.”She says if local communities want to grow the best option is to tap into already existing local agriculture.“Many people would like to have a new car plant and have those local economic development opportunities. That’s probably not going to happen for most of those communities, but they might be able to get an ice cream plant, or they might be able to get a new milk plant, or a cheese plant, or maybe a new potato chip factory. But if you want an ice cream plant you’ve got to have a cow.”So the forum this year will bring together farmers and those in the Hoosier economic development industry.“And we want to help introduce them so that we really start to focus on our future success. It’s about those two groups working together better.”The keynote speaker for the event will be Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. R. Martin Umbarger of the Indiana National Guard. His speech will focus on “How the Guard, a Feed Company, the Community can make a Difference for Indiana.” Also Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann will unveil ISDA’s new strategic dairy plan strategy.There will be two panel discussions, one titled “Let’s Talk Turkey about Economic Development” focusing on how an Indiana ag company brought economic development to southwestern Indiana and also “From the Barns to Bacon” focusing on how investment in agriculture brings community valueThe Forum will begin at 8 a.m. with registration and breakfast; the general session will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 2 p.m. Lunch and networking opportunities are included.Registration is $25 and pre-registration is required.
