The group would need the equivalent of one new factory per year in extra capacity in the coming years, he said.Michelin is already due to open three new factories in 2012.The company said it would achieve “significantly positive” free cash flow in 2010-2015 and would keep its dividend payout ratio at around 30 per cent over that period.Michelin set a subscription price of €45 per share for the capital increase and said investors were entitled to buy two new shares for every 11 they held.Citigroup has been taken on by Michelin to advise on the issue.

Created in the aftermath of the BP drilling accident in the Gulf of Mexico, the commission said the entire offshore oil industry needed to increase its focus on safety and such an industry group could hold firms accountable. “The oil and gas industry needs to embrace a new safety culture,” commission co-chair Bill Reilly said at the start of a two-day meeting to help prepare the panel’s final report. Reilly said a lack of resources had plagued the government’s offshore drilling regulator for years, which he said justified the Obama administration’s decision to delay expansion of offshore drilling to areas off the Atlantic coast and in the eastern Gulf. “The industry is upset about it, but one has to ask how a decision could ever have been made otherwise, given the poor state of the agency itself,” Reilly said. The panel is considering pushing for the creation of a self-regulating safety organisation for offshore drilling. last_img read more

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 19th January, 2020 | More on: BARC NWG 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I think these 2 undervalued FTSE 100 dividend stocks could double The FTSE 100 achieved one of its best performances since the financial crisis last year. However, there are still a handful of companies in the index that appear to offer value at current levels.Here are two blue-chip champions that still look undervalued and could yield an upside for investors of as much as 100%, according to my calculations. 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…Royal Bank of ScotlandRBS (LSE: RBS) has to be one of the most hated stocks in the FTSE 100. A decade ago, the lender was on the verge of bankruptcy and had to be bailed out by the taxpayer, almost wiping out shareholders in the process. Today, the bank is in much better shape than it was 10 years ago. Its managers have worked flat out to rebuild the balance sheet, cut costs and improve efficiency. As a result of these actions, RBS is now solidly profitable, so much so that last year management decided to declare a special dividend for investors. In 2020, City analysts are forecasting a net profit of £3bn for the group. Despite this impressive performance, the stock is only trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10 and price-to-book ratio (P/B) ratio of 0.6. These metrics suggest the shares offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. Indeed, some of RBS’s international peers trade at a P/E a ratio of 1.2 or more, which suggests the stock could offer an upside of 100% from current levels. On top of this capital gains potential, analysts believe shares in RBS will yield 6.5% in 2020, although if the lender performs better than expected, I wouldn’t rule out another special dividend over the next 12 months.BarclaysShares in RBS’s peer Barclays (LSE: BARC) appear to offer an even more significant margin of safety. The stock is currently trading at P/E ratio of 8.6 and a P/B ratio of 0.5. Once again, these figures suggest the stock could offer upside of as much as 100% from current levels. Barclays also offers a dividend yield of 5.3%. However, the lender has a more prominent investment bank than its peer, which ties up more capital. So management is unlikely to announce a special dividend anytime soon.Nevertheless, the payout is covered 2.4 times by earnings per share, so it looks as if there’s plenty of headroom for the distribution to grow from current levels. Over the last decade, analysts have repeatedly questioned whether or not Barclays should be keeping its investment arm, but recent results from the company support management’s decision to hang on.Pre-tax profits at the investment bank jumped by 77% to £882m in the third quarter of 2019. As stock markets around the world continue to head higher, it seems highly likely this trend is set to continue throughout 2020.Additional good news from the bank over the next 12 months could power the share price higher as investors return to this deeply undervalued security. center_img Image source: Getty Images.

Las Vegas Sevens preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS When the 2011 USA Sevens takes place on 12-13 February defending USA Sevens champions Samoa will not only be looking to defend their title at the Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas, but also kick-start the defence of their World Series crown.vSo far on the 2010/11 HSBC Sevens World Series Stephen Betham’s side are third with 52 points having lost to England in one final (29-21 in Dubai) and two semis (22-12 and 7-5 in South Africa and New Zealand respectively).The match schedule for Las VegasEngland (above) and New Zealand lead the standings with 64 points each, and Betham knows the importance of at least reaching the final in Las Vegas to decrease the 12-point gap and maintain their hopes of defending the World Series title.“At the moment it is not that easy but we have tried to set a target to win in Vegas. It was the point that we really got going last year and hopefully we can do the same this year. The pool line-up for Las Vegas“But like I said it is not easy. We have two teams in front of us who are playing really well, and we have Fiji in fourth place who are also playing well.”How Samoa won it in 2010:But Betham will remember that at the same stage last year his side had also failed to win any of the three Cup titles before an outstanding 33-10 victory over New Zealand in last year’s USA Sevens Cup final acted as the catalyst in their season.Following their win in Las Vegas, Samoa went on to win the Australia, Hong Kong and Scotland Cup titles to help clinch their first ever World Series, and the coach believes his side are strong enough to repeat history again this year with the help of the Samoan community.“It is our main goal to reach the final. We know if we don’t make the final it will be pretty hard from here on in. But the boys have refocussed for this weekend,” added Betham. “In saying that it will be a different game on a smaller size pitch so we have to tactically sit down and work on different tactics for it. I think it will be another 50-50 chance but it just depends on how well we eliminate our mistakes.“Not only that there is a huge Samoan community here in the USA which will give a huge boost to the boys but saying that we have lost our captain Lolo Lui so it will be interesting to see what happens.”This year they face pool matches with Japan, hosts USA and South Africa on day one of the fourth leg on the 2010/11 HSBC Sevens World Series and will be favourites to reach the Cup quarter finals. But despite having never lost to Japan and just once to USA, Betham is not underestimating their Pool D opponents.“It wont be easy. You don’t know what Japan will bring to the game, so you just have to play to your strengths and minimise your mistakes.”Alongside the main HSBC Sevens World Series event at the USA Sevens in Las Vegas, some of the finest women players in the world will compete in the USA Women’s International 7s Tournament.Hosts USA have named an exciting squad blending Sevens veterans, collegiate hopefuls and cross-overs from the 15-a-side Women’s National team as they prepare to take on the likes of France, Kenya, Spain, the Netherlands and bitter rivals Canada.As well as striding out on the main Sam Boyd Stadium pitch on Sunday during a break in the men’s action, the women’s final will also be broadcast on NBC/NBC Universal, a further indication of the increasing appetite for both men’s and women’s Sevens as an exciting new Olympic sport.“We have a lot of great athletes, at camp we saw a lot of our players show up in great shape, with great attitudes,” said USA women’s Sevens coach, Ric Suggitt. “I am really looking forward to Vegas and getting to watch the girls play not only as a coach, but as a fan,” he added. “It’s going to be an eye-opener for some of the players coming over from 15s to see how much space they have to run.”Suggitt selected the home team based on performances in domestic and international competitions at various levels, but the side will almost certainly benefit from the experience that several of the players gained by playing at the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup in England.Victoria Folayan, Nathalie Marchino, and Christy Ringgenberg all proved match winners in that tournament and during the 2010 Women’s Premier League (WPL) season, Marchino finishing second top try-scorer in the WPL.center_img In addition, collegiate All-Star and three-time All-American Tyra McGrady was selected for the Sevens side again, while Penn State stars Deven Owsiany and Sadie Anderson, UNC’s Katie Lorenz, Minnesota’s Catherine Parkhill, and Stanford stand-outs Amelia Villines and Frances Wehrwein all add panache.As well as being shown NBC/NBC Universal, the women’s matches will be webcast live on USA Rugby’s UStream channel, http://www.ustream.tv/usarugby.last_img read more

Graphic: The Most Popular Rugby Boots in the 2016 Six Nations

first_imgFriday Mar 25, 2016 Graphic: The Most Popular Rugby Boots in the 2016 Six Nations Following a research study conducted by rugby marketing consultancy Muddy Rhino, we now know that the most popular model of rugby boot worn in the 2016 Six Nations is the adidas Predator Incurza. The below graphic demonstates the most popular boots in each position.This year adidas represented 55 percent of all boots worn at the Six Nations 2016. Compared to Muddy Rhino’s 2015 research, adidas’ domination is down by two percentage points. Asics appear to be the biggest winners of the challenger brands in 2016.As the brand that markets themselves as ‘relentlessly leading rugby’, adidas are widely accepted as being streets ahead of the chasing pack. At Rugby World Cup 2015 competitor brands targeted minnow teams to reduce adidas’ representation to 39 percent of all rugby boots worn.Similarly, in the early rounds of the 2016 Six Nation competition adidas’ representation peaked at 57 percent. As the tournament progressed, and the wider squad players getting involved, challenger brands clearly targeted some of the fringe players. That saw adidas’ share drop as low as 50 percent.In the short-term adidas has little to worry about with a glut of ‘the most recognisable’ names in rugby union being signed as official adidas athletes.Remarkably, rugby centric brand Canterbury only had one player represented through Scottish-born Italian rugby player George Biagi. Heritage rugby brand Gilbert had only two players represented, namely Wales’ Jake Ball and Ireland’s Sean Cronin.The 2016 tournament saw New Balance enter the rugby market with representation from Welsh wing Alex Cuthbert and Irish Centre Fergus McFadden. Meanwhile, Taulupe Faletau switched from Under Armour to adidas in round 2 to mark a major coup for the brand.Nike’s representation saw them continue their stance as somewhat of a bit-player in rugby. They did introduce a striking ‘Crimson’ colourway for their Tiempo Legend 6 boots. Initially this model was worn by Sergio Parisse and Maxime Médard; then later among others including Grand Slam winners Danny Care, Owen Farrell and Jonathan Joseph.adidas’ continued success appears to come from their cohesive strategy to range position-specific boots and the launch of the new Electric Pack 2 (yellow) colourway in the weeks prior to the tournament.Although, black rugby boots made up 40 percent of the colours worn at Six Nations 2016.The current adidas line-up dominated almost all positions. Their line-up includes Kakari aimed at tight five forwards, FF80 suited for back-row players, Crazyquick Malice for outside backs and the legendary Predator Incurza for goal kickers.However, as illustrated in the above infographic, players continue to select boots from across the range regardless of playing position.Looking towards next season it will be interesting to see how the pack of challenger brands respond. Nike have already unveiled their Anti-Clog Traction technology to prevent studs being clogged-up by the hallowed turf. Innovations such as these hold the potential to disrupt the landscape in 2017.Need further data from this research exercise?

British Heart Foundation cancels 2021 London to Brighton Bike Ride

Now, the BHF is encouraging all would-be entrants to take on its virtual cycling challenge, MyCycle, or the London to Brighton Off-Road Bike Ride instead for 2021. MyCycle has three challenges suitable for riders of all cycling abilities: 100, 200 or 300+ miles over 30 days to raise funds for the BHF’s research. The distance can be covered on the road or in the gym, individually, or as part of a team.   The BHF’s 75-mile London to Brighton Off-Road Bike Ride on 4 September 2021 is another option for those keen to take to the saddle this year for the BHF. Liam O’Reilly, Head of the Events at the British Heart Foundation, said: “It’s heart breaking to have to cancel our London to Brighton Bike Ride for a second year and we know that many people will be disappointed by the decision. The uncertainty surrounding continued Covid-19 restrictions for large scale events coupled with a high financial risk of cancellation at short notice left us with no choice. But we’re determined to return with a bigger and better event in 2022.  “We’re incredibly grateful to the thousands of cyclists that take part in the event each year, pedalling the 54 miles from London to Brighton to raise funds for our life saving research into heart and circulatory diseases.  “Heart and circulatory diseases take one in four lives in the UK and right now, people living with these conditions are being hit hardest by the pandemic. Covid-19 has had a huge impact on our research funding so it’s crucial we do everything possible to maintain our progress for the millions of people who need us. That’s why we’re urging people to take on a different event for the BHF this year like our virtual cycling event, MyCycle, or the London to Brighton Off-Road Bike Ride.”  L2B is the BHF’s flagship event and over 40 years old. Since its inception, elite and novice riders alike have pedalled over 41 million miles between them to help the charity raise tens of millions for the charity’s research.

Significant severe weather outbreak forecasted, tornadoes possible

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A major storm is quickly intensifying Saturday morning in the central U.S. and will bring a significant severe weather outbreak to parts of the Midwest Saturday afternoon and evening – including the threat for dangerous, significant, long-track tornadoes.Radar Saturday morning is showing the organizing storm with a rain shield that stretches from the Great Plains through the Great Lakes and the Mid-Atlantic. Some of the thunderstorms Saturday morning, especially in northern Illinois, are capable of producing 1 to 2 inches of rainfall. There is a flash flood watch issued for parts of Indiana and Ohio, where 1-2 inches of rain is likely in the next 36 hours.Storms on Friday evening produced greater than baseball-sized hail in parts of Oklahoma and Missouri.On the colder side of the system, winter weather advisories, and blizzard warnings have been issued for the upper Midwest and the Plains, where locally up to 6 inches of snow is possible this week.There is a moderate risk area for severe weather in northern Illinois and the extreme eastern edge of Iowa. In Peoria, Illinois, there is a moderate risk for long-track, strong tornadoes.There is potential that an upgrade to a high-risk alert will be coming later Saturday from the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center.In the enhanced risk and slight risk areas, tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail will be possible. Regardless of the risk area, some strong tornadoes are possible Saturday. Some of the cities in the enhanced and slight risk areas include Nashville, Little Rock, Arkansas, St. Louis, Chicago and Indianapolis.Storms will approach the Midwest and Mississippi River valley by mid to late Saturday afternoon. The increased concern will occur later in the evening as we head towards dusk and first couple hours of night, when the low-level jet will strengthen along the cold front. This low-level jet will greatly enhance the shear with the thunderstorms, and allow the storms to rotate. Therefore, there is a possibility of significant severe weather during the night hours Saturday night.The storm will be sliding eastward on Sunday and some of the severe weather will try to move into parts of Ohio Valley and Western Appalachians. However, the intensity of the storms is expected to decrease with only general thunderstorms expected for now, with a couple of stronger storms possible.Additionally, some snow will be possible in parts of the upper Midwest, including Duluth, Minnesota and Minneapolis.By Monday, the storm will have cleared much of the country, with little weather impact remaining.
