Retailers expect a merrier Christmas

first_img RETAILERS are expecting a more prosperous Christmas than last year – fuelled by shoppers buying goods ahead of the looming VAT hike in January.Almost two thirds of traders said they expected sales to be at least the same or better than last year, according to a survey by the British Retail Consortium (BRC). Stores are stepping up their discounting with 41 per cent offering more than last year.Seventy one per cent of retailers think the January rise in VAT to 20 per cent means customers are bringing forward purchases.However, eight out of ten expect the VAT change to have a negative impact on sales in January, the Christmas trading survey found.British Retail Consortium director general Stephen Roberston said: “It’s reassuring to see a majority of retailers believe Christmas sales will be at least as good as last year even if a third say they will be worse. “But, considering inflation is now at 3.2 per cent, growth of anything less then that would be a real-terms fall.“Promotions have hit a new level of intensity, retailers believe the next VAT rise is bringing sales forward and Christmas is usually a time when people spend despite their economic worries but ultimately December could prove to be the ninth month in a row of weak year-on-year growth.”Those surveyed were also asked what impact they felt when VAT was restored to 17.5 per cent in January this year, after being reduced in an attempt to breathe new life into high street sales after the finacial crisis took its toll on consumers.A total of 18 per cent said sales went down while 64 per cent said they had seen no impact.The survey – of 17 major retailers covering 51 per cent of the UK’s retail turnover – was conducted between 22 November and 1 December 2010.

I think now’s the time to buy FTSE 100 shares

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild | Friday, 8th May, 2020 | More on: AHT Enter Your Email Address These are perplexing times for FTSE 100 investors. Market confidence remains fragile as the world slowly lifts itself out of harsh quarantine measures. The economic destruction that Covid-19 has already caused continues to confound City thinking too. And the threat of another deadly wave of infections later in 2020 is dominating investor mindsets.A haze has settled over UK plc, which makes it nigh-on impossible to guide on near-term earnings. As Rachel Winter, associate investment director at Killik & Co, comments: “We’re now over halfway through reporting season and one of the most notable takeaways so far is the high number of companies that have withdrawn their guidance on expected earnings for this year.”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…Unpredictability over when lockdown measures will be repealed “makes it almost impossible for these companies to predict future earnings,” Winter adds. And this lack of guidance “makes it difficult to value these businesses.”Profits questionsIt’s clear that valuing FTSE 100 stocks based on 2020 earnings is a risky endeavour. The social, economic and political implications of the coronavirus will be without parallel, certainly in modern times. Even those firms that have not withdrawn their full-year estimates face the prospect of changing or pulling their guidance later in the year.Clearly share investors need to be more careful than usual. Firms of all shapes and sizes are running out of cash and profits are evaporating as the lockdown endures. Corporate failures will balloon long before governments and scientists finally get the coronavirus in a headlock.But that’s not to say that Footsie investors — or indeed share pickers looking to invest lower down on the London stock market — should stop searching for great companies to load into their stocks portfolios. The key to successful share investing is, of course, to buy shares with a view to holding them for a minimum of five years. For many businesses with a solid financial base, the troubles of 2020 will likely represent nothing more than a blip in their long-term investment story.One of my FTSE 100 favouritesLet’s look at the performance of FTSE 100 colossus Ashtead Group (LSE: AHT) as an example. Let’s say you’d bought shares in the construction equipment provider at the turn of the century.This is a period blighted by the bursting of the ‘dotcom bubble’, the Goldman Sachs collapse and the global banking crisis, and more recently the outbreak of Covid-19. Despite these troubles, Ashtead has gained a staggering 2,500% in value over the period. The total return is even bigger when you take into account dividends paid over the past two decades.Ashtead is a FTSE 100 firm I believe has a very bright future ahead of it too. It’s why I continue to cling to my shares in the business despite questions over near-term profitability. Its balance sheet is rock solid, and the fruits of an aggressive M&A strategy leave it in great shape to exploit the eventual upturn in the global economy. It’s just one of many British blue-chips that appear brilliant buys following share price declines of recent weeks.

I’m looking for top UK shares to add to my Stocks and Shares ISA for July. Here are three that are on my radar:One of my FTSE 250 favesI think FTSE 250 food production and retail giant Associated British Foods (LSE: ABF) could be a great buy before the start of July. Fresh financials are due on 1 July, and I’m expecting to hear that sales have kept soaring.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…The ABF share price sank last time the firm updated the market in April. Then investors took fright on news that pre-tax profits halved in the six months to February as revenues slipped. However, sales have taken off since Covid-19 rules have been relaxed, and the business enjoyed “record” revenues in its English and Welsh stores in the first week of reopening.I reckon latest financials will reveal that turnover has kept rocketing, too. Indeed, the sunny long-term outlook for the ‘fast fashion’ industry means that ABF is a UK share I’d look to own for years to come. However, the rise of Covid-19 infection rates in its core UK territory could harm its recent sales recovery if lockdowns continue or perhaps become stricter.Another top UK share for JulyI’m also expecting good news when PageGroup (LSE: PAGE) unpacks second-quarter numbers on 14 July. The FTSE 250 recruiter’s most recent update in April showed that trading continued to improve month-on-month, a trend that stretches all the way back to last spring. Indeed, in its most recent reported month of March, gross profits leapt 31% from the same month in 2020.Research from staffing and workplace advisors Staffing Industry Analysts (or SIA) illustrates how strongly recruitment industry conditions have rebounded. They recently upgraded their forecasts for the staffing industry and now predict a 12% rise in 2021. Revenues are expected to grow a solid 8% in 2022 too, the report shows.There is reason for caution, however. At current prices PageGroup trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 28 times. Shares that trade on elevated readings like this are in extra danger of slumping in price if trading performance starts to lag.A British stock I already ownAs an owner of CVS Group (LSE: CVSG) shares myself I’ll be interested to see that the veterinary care provider’s next update on 20 July will reveal. The UK healthcare share’s most recent update in late April certainly pleased investors as it upgraded its estimates for the full year.Demand for CVS’s services has benefitted hugely from the spike in pet adoption rates during the pandemic. But don’t think the roaring trade that the animalcare specialist is currently enjoying is a fad. Studies show that the amount people spend on taking care of their animals was ballooning long before the Covid-19 crisis.A chronic shortage of veterinary workers could throw a spanner in the works of CVS Group’s growth prospects. But I’m still confident it should deliver spectacular long-term growth and am thinking of increasing my holdings.

Reverend Wright is currently my son’s and daughter-in-law’s pastor and baptized two of my grandchildren, and I have had the pleasure of speaking with him on many occasions.

I am sure that Carl Wright is a very good man and priest as many people have said in the comment section above. My “mixed emotions” are not about him, but about the conflict of having any Christian clergy person in the military. This conflict can be seen visually when one looks at Carl’s picture with him dressed in a military uniform and posed in front of the flag of the United States. It begs the very question Jesus posed about serving two masters. Some will argue, with some justification, that those in the military deserve clergy to minister to their religious needs and this is not entirely incorrect. However, in the September – October issue of Sojourners magazine on page 9 Chris Antal addresses this question in a short article entitled “I Refuse To Be An Empire Chaplain”. In the article he addresses his reasons for becoming a military chaplain and then explains why he decided to leave that service. He says in part, “I learned that the U.S. military chaplains are not allowed to have a prophetic voice; they are expected to be nothing more than empire chaplains. Empire chaplains, like empire churches, represent what T. Jeremy Gunn calls the ‘American National religion,’ an unholy trinity of governmental theism, military supremacy, and capitalism as freedom. These chaplains … cloak state violence with the garb of piety, lend religious legitimacy to military campaigns, and conflate God and country.” In his book Saving Jesus From The Church author Pastor Robin Meyers, after citing Constantine’s decision to paint the cross on his shoulders shields and reminding us of Jesus’ comment about wanting to protect the people of Jerusalem like a mother hen he says, “One can only wonder how the world would have been different if Constantine had painted a mother hen on the helmets of his soldiers, wings spread to protect a brood of helpless chicks, instead of the cross. How strange that a symbol of nonviolent resistance and redemption ends up becoming part of a military uniform … Today the cross is quite literally wrapped in the American flag, as if there were no contradictions between the world’s only superpower and the symbol of God’s power made perfect in weakness.” As followers of the Prince of Peace we, as Episcopalians, need to consider the dicodomy of being and having military chaplains in the U.S. armed service and of having unquestioned support for military action required of military chaplains.

Anti-Asian racism accelerates — WW commentary

first_imgMarch 22 — As the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic accelerates in the U.S. — amid appeals for the population to “work together” — hateful anti-Chinese and anti-Asian racism is being incited at the highest level of government.On Feb. 29 hundreds marched through San Francisco’s Chinatown behind a lead banner: “Fight the virus, NOT the people!”In a March 8 press conference, President Donald Trump claimed his repeated use of “Chinese virus” — instead of the World Health Organization-designated name — was “not racist at all.” When asked if the term might put Asian Americans at risk, Trump replied, “No, not at all.” A CBS News reporter tweeted that another “White House official referred to the virus as the “Kung-Flu” to her face. (Washington Post, March 17)WHO officials emphasized the naming of COVID-19 was done specifically “to prevent the use of other names that can be inaccurate or stigmatizing.” (globalbiodefense.com, Feb. 11)Trump’s response is not surprising, given his arrogant consistency in using racist language to damn African-American political figures, Latinx immigrants, African countries and all Muslims.His anti-Asian racism is also linked to a vile “American First” history of white supremacy and anti-Chinese discrimination. Mass assaults by white mobs on Chinese communities were common in the 19th century, including a Los Angeles attack in 1871 when at least 20 Chinese immigrants were lynched.Racist slanders that Chinese people carried diseases — from syphilis to the bubonic plague — were constantly used to justify discrimination. Legislators, capitalist bosses, whites-only conservative unions and “liberal” white women suffragists used this accusation to pass the infamous 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act banning Chinese workers from coming to the U.S.Division incited between oppressed peoples and workers by this racism resulted in the 1982 murder of young Chinese American Vincent Chin, beaten to death by unemployed white autoworkers.Impact on Asian people — and resistanceAs Trump’s economic and political campaign against People’s China continues, his racism has unleashed a new round of vicious discrimination and physical attacks.People of Asian descent have been attacked on public transportation in New York City and denied motel rooms in Indiana. (Workers World, March 3) In Los Angeles, a middle school Asian student was recently sent to the emergency room after he was assaulted by bullies accusing him of having the coronavirus. On a busy San Francisco street, a Chinese woman was cursed at and spit on by a man who yelled at a passing vehicle to “run them [Chinese people] all over.” (NBC Bay Area, March 20)A website, Stop AAPI Hate, has been set up to report incidents by the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council, Chinese for Affirmative Action and the Department of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University. Report forms are available in Chinese traditional and simplified, Korean, Thai, Japanese and English. (tinyurl.com/rgurjlz)Jeremy Lin, National Basketball Association player, has launched his own twitter campaign against Trump’s racism. Lin, a California native of Taiwanese descent, became the first Asian-American player to help a team win an NBA championship as a member of the 2019 Toronto Raptors.Lin posted several tweets accusing Trump of racism, saying, “The U.S. will be powerfully supporting those industries, like airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the ‘Chinese virus’ . . . I wish you [Trump] would powerfully support the vulnerable people that will suffer due to our mismanagement of this virus, including those [who] will be affected by the racism you’re empowering.” (Washington Post, March 18)Lin added in a later post: “Every day, Asian Americans I know are threatened and physically attacked. … This subtle anti-Chinese message only empowers more hate towards Asians.” In an Instagram post, Lin announced he was donating $150,000 for medical equipment to the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the virus first came into view, and an additional $150,000 to other anti-COVID-19 efforts, praising “doctors and nurses fighting [on] the front lines” against the pandemic.China’s success against COVID-19China has succeeded in containing and subduing the virus in four months. Thanks to centralized planning, a strong socialist-oriented system put in place since its 1949 revolution and a dedicated people’s base of workers, as of March 22, only 39 new cases and 9 new deaths had been reported in the entire country. China currently has a population of 1.43 billion people. (worldometer.info)China’s success is in stark contrast to the chaotic response in the capitalistic bastions of Europe, where life-and-death health care is being rationed, and in the U.S., where the country’s president asserts companies-for-profit will “volunteer” to meet crisis medical needs.The current surge of anti-Asian racism in the U.S. calls for oppressed people and workers of all backgrounds to step up in solidarity against the slurs and violence. Deadly capitalism can only continue if workers turn against each other, distorted by the bosses’ propaganda, instead of uniting to fight against exploitation by the system.Capitalism is not going to save us — from a deadly virus, from climate crisis or from any of the local assaults that profit taking makes on our lives.Solidarity is survival — and the essential step on the road to socialism for the people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
