SoftBank investment sends the THG share price soaring UK e-commerce group THG (LSE:THG) received a welcome boost yesterday morning as investors learned Japanese investment heavyweight SoftBank has agreed to take a £710m ($1bn) stake. SoftBank will also pay up to $1.6bn to invest in THG’s Ingenuity division, via a tech subsidiary that does not yet exist. SoftBank has a history of investing in tech and e-commerce companies, so it seems to recognise a good thing when it sees it. Image source: Getty Images.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. What does THG do?THG manufactures and sells beauty and healthcare products direct to consumers. It also does this on behalf of other brands, earning a marketing fee in the process. The THG share price soared over 14% yesterday, a day when the FTSE 100 slumped over 2.6%.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…THG’s Ingenuity platform is fast becoming a way for brands to market their products directly to consumers. Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Nintendo and Nestle are all partners of THG’s Ingenuity platform. This set-up allows THG to dispatch over 68 million items to customers globally.Part of THG’s growth strategy is the acquisition of premium brands. These include Myprotein, Lookfantastic, Zavvi, Skinstore and many more. And THG has just announced yet another acquisition, Bentley Laboratories, a New Jersey-based beauty developer and manufacturer. THG will pay $255m for Bentley. This is expected to increase FY22 revenues by approximately $77m and adjusted EBITDA by around $15m.Matthew Moulding, Founder, Executive Chairman and CEO of THG said: “The acquisition of Bentley materially increases our capability in beauty manufacturing and product development, and strengthens our position as the leading digital beauty business globally.”After Tuesday’s share price rise, the shares are down over 4% today. The THG share price has actually fluctuated considerably this past year and is down over 18% since its 52-week high.Financial markets around the world are sliding as tech stocks lose favour with investors. Inflation concerns are making investors nervous, particularly as commodity prices continue to rise. So I think tech stocks such as THG could expect to face share price volatility for some time to come.I already own shares in THG, but now that SoftBank is on board I’d consider adding more in the future.Morrisons reports solid Q1 salesFTSE 250 supermarket Morrisons (LSE:MRW) also enjoyed a price rise yesterday as it presented better than expected results. The company reported like-for-like sales excluding fuel rising 2.7% in Q1. But that was down from a 9% rise in Q4, most likely hindered by the third lockdown.

As the pandemic hit, Morrisons jumped on the home delivery bandwagon, catching up with rivals Tesco and Asda. I think the company is making a concerted effort to turn its image and profitability around, but it’s got a challenging road ahead.Morrisons faces rising competition and inflation could set its share price on a downward trend. But it does have a lucrative partnership with Amazon. Morrisons provides much of the Amazon branded food in its till-free grocery stores. Plus, Morrisons sells directly through Amazon’s grocery service online. Rumours of Morrisons being bought out by Amazon have been circulating for years, but so far there’s no reason to believe it will happen.The Morrisons price-to-earnings ratio is 46, earnings per share are 4p, and its dividend yield is approaching 4%. I like that it’s partnered with Amazon and this, combined with the dividend, tempt me to invest in Morrisons shares.

Peck Related Articles A new Redfin study analyzed the mix of affordable and high-end homes in neighborhoods across 30 of the largest American cities to determine which are the most economically-integrated. Overall, one in five residential properties across those 30 cities were in economically-integrated neighborhoods, or areas with roughly equal numbers of affordable and high-end homes.Seattle took the top spot, as more than half (54.2%) of its homes in 2020 were located in neighborhoods with about the same amount of affordable and high-end homes.Redfin defines an “affordable home” as a property with a monthly mortgage payment that’s no more than 30% of the local median monthly household income as of 2019. In Seattle, where the median 2019 income was $102,486, that would be a home with a monthly mortgage payment of no more than $2,562, or a total market value of $786,500. Seattle’s tech boom has resulted in increased incomes for many (but not all) residents.Washington, D.C., was the only other city where nearly half of the number of homes (49.5%) were in economically-integrated neighborhoods. Boston at 41.6% and Denver at 41% rounded out the top four.The findings in Seattle and Washington, D.C., differ greatly from a city like Los Angeles, where 79.1% of the homes are in high-end neighborhoods, and Oklahoma City, where almost all homes (96.7%) are in affordable neighborhoods.“When affluent Americans cluster in luxury gated communities, their wealth stays concentrated in those areas,” said Redfin Lead Economist Taylor Marr. “When affluent Americans share neighborhoods, parks, and restaurants with lower- and middle-income Americans, wealth and economic opportunity is distributed more evenly throughout our cities.”And while Seattle has a reputation for being one of the most expensive places to live in the nation, local leaders have made great strides in recent years when it comes to balancing out expensive neighborhoods with affordable housing.Seattle officials have used upzoning—altering zoning regulations to allow for dense multifamily buildings, instead of just single-family homes, in order to expand housing supply and provide less expensive options for families who can’t afford to buy single-family homes. The Seattle City Council voted as recently as 2019 to upzone 27 additional neighborhoods and require developers in those areas to include low-income apartments in their buildings or pay fees.“Some neighborhoods may appear to have a good balance of affordable and high-end homes, when in reality it’s just an affordable neighborhood transitioning into a high-end neighborhood due to gentrification,” Marr said.The share of Seattle homes that are in economically integrated neighborhoods increased from 48.7% in 2016 to 54.2% in 2020. Over the same period, the share of homes that are in high-end neighborhoods decreased from 39.9% to 15.6%, and the share of homes that are in affordable neighborhoods increased from 11.3% to 30.3%.Nearly half (49.5%) of Washington, D.C.’s, homes in 2020 were located in economically integrated neighborhoods, little changed from 2016. However, during the same period, the share of homes in high-end neighborhoods decreased from 32% to 15%, and the share of homes that are in affordable neighborhoods increased from 18.6% to 35.5%.Using Redfin’s methodology, an affordable home in Washington, D.C., (based on the 2019 median income of $92,266) is a property with a monthly mortgage payment of no more than $2,307, or a total market value of $708,200.Click here to see more from Redfin study. gentrification Home Buying HOUSING mortgage Multifamily Redfin Taylor Marr 2021-02-19 Eric C.

The SLP, filed through Advocates Vipin Nair and S.B Talekar challenges the Bombay High Court’s decision to uphold the Maharashtra State High Powered Committee’s recommendations to not release on emergency parole those prisoners convicted for offences punishable with less than 7 years under Special Acts such as NDPS Act, UAPA, MCOCA etc.The NGO National Alliance for People’s Movement(of which Patkar is the convenor) Mumbai-based activist Meera Sadanand Kamath are the other petitioners. Pursuant to the Supreme Court directing all states to constitute a High Powered Committee (HPC) in order to release prisoners on interim bail or emergency parole in an attempt to maintaining social distancing in the prisons during the pandemic, the Maharashtra HPC classified prisoners for temporary release on emergency parole as well as interim bail. The HPC on 25.03.2020 and 11.05.2020 made these classifications whereby it was directed that all such persons who are accused or convicted of offences punishable with imprisonment of 7 years or less shall be released on interim bail or emergency parole as the case may be. However, it was held that these directions would not apply to the prisoners who are accused of offences under the Special Acts or the serious economic offences. It was further directed that jail authorities would favourably consider the release of the convicts who are undergoing imprisonment for offences punishable with less than 7 years imprisonment, on emergency parole. Furthermore, release of those convicted for offences punishable with more than 7 years imprisonment was restricted to only such prisoners who had returned on time twice in the past when released either on parole or furlough, but excluded all such convicted prisoners who are undergoing punishment under the special Acts from the scope of its directions. The classification prescribes exclusion of certain convicts under the Special Acts for release on emergency parole on the ground that additional conditions or special procedure were prescribed for release on bail under such Acts. This, argues the petition, resulted from a ‘total non-application of mind.’ “The HPC excluded the prisoners who were accused of offences punishable under the Special Acts for the purpose of availing interim bail on the ground that such Acts required observation of a separate procedure or imposition of additional conditions for the purpose of grant of bail. However, most of the special Acts did not provide for any special procedure or additional conditions for grant of bail… …Once the HPC had classified the prisoners after applying the relevant parameters, it was not required to apply those and other relevant parameters once again by the lower courts, thereby making the entire exercise of classification of prisoners for the purpose of decongestion in the prisons, a futile attempt and illusory.” -reads the petition Claiming that the prescription of additional safeguards while granting bail cannot be a ground for total exclusion of all such prisoners who were accused of offences under the special Acts, it is urged that the classification is made without any intelligible differentia or a rational nexus with the objects sought to be achieved by such classification. The High Court, vide order dated 05.08.2020 upheld these classifications. The petitioners clarify that the present plea is limited to challenging the High Court Order and the HPC’s classification of not allowing parole to prisoners convicted under Special Acts. Challenging the High Court judgment, is thus urged that the Bombay High Court “has erroneously upheld not only the classification of the prisoners done by the HPC but even the additional conditions/restrictions on grant of temporary release of prisoners imposed by HPC holding that the prisoners had no vested right to be released either on emergency parole or interim bail; and that the classification done by the High Powered Committee did not violate any of the fundamental rights of the prisoners.” Next Story
Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Waste collector Jim Ferry found to be in contempt of court again Pinterest Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Twitter By News Highland – October 3, 2018 Homepage BannerNews Twitter Senior Counsel for Donegal County Council have applied to have waste collector Jim Ferry sent to prison for failing to fully cooperate with efforts to recoup money.According to RTE News, Richard Lyons of Donegal County Council said Mr Ferry’s cooperation was needed to help repay taxpayers who in the interim have to cover the cost of the multi-million euro clean-up of an illegal dump at Rossbracken in Letterkenny.Jim Ferry was given until January to provide requested information to a forensic accountant employed by Donegal County Council before a decision would be reached on whether he should be sent to prison.In July, some records were issued to the forensic accountant, Gerard Murray.RTE News reports that Mr Murray told the High Court that material provided was incomplete and he was left with outstanding questions and said he had not “received full cooperation from Mr Ferry.”Mr Murray added that it was his opinion that Mr Ferry has not provided evidence to sustain the position that the illegal dumping was done without financial benefit to himself or his companies.He also said the details of waste handled by Mr Ferry’s companies did not account for an estimated 21,000 tonnes of material believed to be buried at his site at Rossbracken, Letterkenny.The court also heard that last Friday one of his companies, Ferry’s Refuse Recycling Ltd, was put into liquidation, owing more than €230,000 and does not have any assets.Counsel for Mr Ferry, objected to the application to jail his client and said Mr Ferry was trying to comply with the Court orders in every way that he could.Mr Justice Barrett on the basis of Mr Murray’s report did not accept that Mr Ferry had cooperated and he found him to be in contempt of court.The case has been put back until January and warned Mr Ferry that he will be sent to jail on that day if he has not complied and provided all the information necessary.

Previous Article Next Article HR helps cut sick leaveOn 23 May 2000 in Personnel Today Absence rates are more likely to fall when HR managers, not line managers, take responsibility for managing absence, research by the CBI has found.The discovery challenges the conventional wisdom that line managers should be principally accountable for the problem and for dealing with it and that HR’s role should be an advisory and supportive one.“Line managers need to be involved, but they should not take primary responsibility,” said Jamie Bell, senior policy adviser at the CBI and author of the annual absence report.“Our statistics show that absence is lower where senior or HR managers take primary responsibility.”Bell said this is because it is easier for someone removed from the situation to intervene.“An employee will tell an HR manager things they will not tell someone they work with. It is often easier for HR managers, who don’t have the job of motivating staff, to act without wrecking the working relationship.”He added that putting someone senior in charge shows commitment to dealing with the problem from above.But Angela Probert, head of personnel for social services at Nottingham City Council, where absence among staff has halved in two years, said getting line managers to take responsibility is essential.“Our evidence shows that where we have empowered line managers, absence has come down. It needs to be a partnership approach. HR should be involved, but the mistake in the past was to see it purely as an HR issue. Line managers need to take ownership and be accountable.”The CBI report, sponsored by PPP Healthcare, found overall absence fell slightly in 1999 to an average of 7.8 days per employee compared with 8.5 in 1998. The cost to business was £438 per worker, and £10.5bn in total.The report will be available on 1 June. Contact: 020-7395 8071.www.cbi.org.uk Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.
