Carrefour cuts full-year forecast

first_img Carrefour, Europe’s biggest retailer, trimmed its 2010 profit forecast as an increase in one-off charges at its Brazilian business offset a slightly higher-than-expected rise in third-quarter sales. The French group, world number two by sales behind US group Wal-Mart, said yesterday it expected to make an underlying operating profit of around €3bn (£2.6bn) this year, down from about €3.1bn previously. That was due to an increase in the estimate for one-off charges at the group’s Brazilian business, where it is trying to revive flagging hypermarkets sales, to about €180m. Carrefour, which has over 15,500 stores in 35 countries, said third-quarter sales rose 6.7 per cent.

Analysts at Investec said JD Sports “positively surprised” with the results. However, it warned: “Management is highlighting the difficulty of passing on VAT and cost increases to its customers, so we are cutting full-year forecasts by £9m to £72m.The retailer opened 28 stores and refurbished a further 24 in the year to January 2011.

FDJ sees revenue and stakes climb in Q1 despite Covid-19 restrictions

first_imgQ1 results 2020 French gaming giant La Française des Jeux (FDJ) has reported a year-on-year rise in revenue and stakes during its first quarter, despite continuing restrictions on retail activity related to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. FDJ sees revenue and stakes climb in Q1 despite Covid-19 restrictions Lottery remained FDJ’s main source of income with stakes here rising 3.8% to €3.46bn, or 10.0% when excluding the Amigo game, which is offered in bars. FDJ said the closure of bars and other Covid-19 measures had a significant impact on Amigo, with stakes down 50%. Gross gaming revenue was up by 5.1% year-on-year to €525.9m, while revenue from other activities jumped 10.7% from €10.6m to €11.8m. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter In terms of where customers were gambling, land-based operations remained the most popular source, with stakes here rising 5.7% to €4.0bn, despite the restrictions. Digital stakes jumped 64.7% to €1.4bn as more player turned to online during the quarter. France did not introduce Covid-19 measures on retail until mid-March 2020, though sports betting was limited from early March due to the cancellation of almost all sports events.  Total revenue for the three months through to 31 March amounted to €537.6m (£466.7m/$644.3m), up 5.2% from €511.2m in the same period last year. Players won a total of €3.20bn gambling with FDJ during the quarter, up 13.7% from €2.81bn in the same period last year. This left €1.40bn in gross gaming revenue, and after paying €915.7m in public levies, revenue stood at €537.6m. Topics: Finance Q1 results 2020center_img 16th April 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Draw-based game stakes were up 2.6% year-on-year to €1.3bn, while instant games stakes also increase 4.6% to €2.1bn FDJ said the rise in revenue was driven by an increase in stakes, with players spending a total of €4.6bn, up 11.8% from €4.11bn in Q1 of last year, despite the operator facing longer restrictions related to the pandemic than the same period in 2020. “Despite the enduring impact of the health situation on the environment, the first quarter confirmed the good trends in our business, with stakes exceeding the levels recorded before the crisis,” FDJ chairwoman and chief executive Stéphane Pallez said. This year, the operator said approximately 10% of its points-of-sale – mainly bars – were closed for the entire quarter, while customers were also restricted by a 7pm curfew and travel restrictions. However, despite these limitations, player spending was up across all areas of the group, most notably in sports betting, where stakes hiked 46.1% to €1.1bn, helped by the return of the traditional sports calendar after disruption in the latter part of Q1 2020. Tags: Revenue FDJ Stakes Regions: France “After reaching almost 10% of our global stakes in 2020, digital stakes continue to grow at a strong rate whereas our network activity is maintained. The events program for lottery and a busy sporting calendar, including Euro 2021 in football, should allow this momentum to continue in the months to come.” Email Addresslast_img read more

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 13th June, 2020 | More on: PNL In recent weeks, the market has recovered rapidly from its slump earlier in the year. However, while investor sentiment seems to have improved dramatically since March, there is still a genuine risk that a second stock market crash could be on the horizon later in the year.Indeed, there are many risks to the market recovery on the horizon and even in recent days we’ve seen markets falling again.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 second wave of coronavirus, a sluggish economic recovery or a wave bankruptcies as companies struggle under the burden of debt built up during the crisis, could send investor sentiment plunging once again and cause yet another stock market crash this year.As such, now may be an excellent time to prepare for a second stock market crash. And there’s one stock in particular that could help investors weather the storm, I feel.Stock market crash round twoPersonal Assets Trust (LSE: PNL) invests with the single goal of protecting and growing investors’ capital over the long term.It has accomplished this aim in 2020. Shares in the investment trust have gained 4% year-to-date. That’s compared to a loss of 16% for the FTSE 100 in the stock market crash.The performance of the trust is just as impressive over the long run. Over the past five years, it has returned 27% excluding dividends. That’s compared to a loss of 7% for the FTSE 100 over the same period excluding dividends.This track record suggests Personal Assets could help protect investors’ wealth if a second stock market crash arrives.Strong portfolio The trust’s secret is its asset allocation. Most of the portfolio is invested in inflation-linked bonds. These provide a steady above inflation return over the long run. Gold, a great asset to own in any stock market crash, also makes up a large percentage of the portfolio.Equities also feature in Personal Assets’ portfolio. Stock make up about 44% of assets and the investment company is very strict about choosing companies to fit into this investment portfolio. It will only own high-quality, defensive businesses with strong balance sheets that should continue to benefit from cyclical tailwinds. Microsoft, Nestlé, and Unilever are currently its largest holdings.The large allocation towards bonds may mean that the trust does not perform as well as equity indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 over the long term. However, it also means that the trust does not suffer as much as these indexes in the event of a stock market crash. In times of uncertainty, this sort of protection is invaluable.As it is impossible to tell what the future holds for the stock market, and if there will be a second stock market crash in 2020, owning Personal Assets as part of a diversified portfolio could be a sensible financial decision. Its extensive positive track record also suggests that the fund may help you grow your financial nest egg over the long run.

1 FTSE 100 stock I’d buy today to earn steady dividends

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Manika Premsingh | Saturday, 14th November, 2020 | More on: SVT There couldn’t have been a worse year for income investors than 2020. Many FTSE 100 companies’ dividends were either cut or suspended as lockdowns took a toll on business activity. If you’ve been looking for high and stable dividend payments, I feel your pain. But there is good news. Some FTSE 100 companies have re-started dividend payments and others have even increased the dividend amounts.As tempted as I was to write about them earlier, it just seemed too soon to get bullish. We were still in the midst of a pandemic, the economy was looking horrible and business had just tentatively picked up. However, now with hopes of a vaccine, robust economic growth in the UK and improving performance in some pockets of the economy; I think it’s a good time to reconsider FTSE 100 stocks that can earn big dividends. 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…FTSE 100 stock with stable dividendsOne stock I like is the FTSE 100 water supply and sewerage services provider, Severn Trent (LSE: SVT). Its dividend yield is just below 4%. This isn’t anywhere near the biggest dividend payouts. But it’s not among the lowest either. Moreover, it also appears to be quite safe. The service SVT provides is so key, its demand isn’t about to fall off a cliff. That’s more than I can say for many other FTSE 100 companies, some of which I hold in my own portfolio. The one note of caution on SVT is about its performance this year. We don’t have an update on SVT’s performance since its July update, where it flagged a hit to revenues and potentially higher bad debts. We will know more when it updates information later this month. Even in these challenging times, however, I’m optimistic that SVT will continue to pay dividends given its past history of paying them and the renewed optimism for 2021.I also like SVT because it’s not just a dividend stock. On average, in 2020 its share price has risen 18% from 2019. In fact, even from the last time I wrote about it in May this year, its share price is up almost 5%. This can be a much bigger gain than buying a high-dividend yield share, when the share price is falling. I do realise that in the year of the bear, it was to be expected. Investors were going to buy shares in safe companies, and SVT is one of them. But, I’m encouraged by the fact that its share price has already bounced back after seeing a short spell of decline recently.  Another option to considerIn the same vein, I like another utility stock, National Grid, too. It actually has a higher dividend yield of around 5.2% today. But, the reason I wrote about SVT and not NG is that there’s been too much negative news flow about it in recent months. This includes an expected earnings decline, potential issues with power supply, and even the possibility that it may be absolved of its role as the electricity system operator. I’m sticking with SVT as a good dividend stock for now.  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.

When they first approached us, our clients had owned their house for 30 years. They were committed to their house, their neighbourhood and their lifestyle but also desperately needed more room and a better living space. They wanted to maintain the charming proportions of their bungalow rather than build a large addition like many of their neighbours had done. The original second floor above the garage was 550 square feet, had a seven foot high flat ceiling and was divided into four tiny rooms. One of these rooms had the best view in the house, overlooking the backyard, but was being used as a storage closet.Save this picture!Courtesy of the practice of everyday designRecommended ProductsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingFiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsFiber Cements / CementsULMA Architectural SolutionsPaper Facade Panel in Leioa School RestorationWe conceived the addition as a container for the start and end of the clients` day. Rebuilding the entire second floor from scratch freed us from the constraints of the previous design and allowed us to make a strong distinction between the addition and the more traditional first floor. The new stairs, hidden behind two small doors in the dining room, allow the clients to keep this refuge completely separate from other aspects of daily living.Save this picture!© Chris ShepherdExploded AxonSave this picture!© Chris ShepherdA large bay window with built in seating cantilevers over the garden, which the owners enjoy when they wake up in the morning or retire to their loft in the evening to relax.

The windows on either side of the bed are set to the clients’ head heights, while a window on the floor frames a portion of lawn that can be seen from the couch.Save this picture!© Chris Shepherd© Chris ShepherdBy opening up the room and maximizing the storage we created a clutter free and inviting living space. We pitched the roof from six feet at the front and back walls to ten feet in the middle of the room.
