Unilever shares: should I buy? Unilever (LSE: ULVR) shares have fallen since the start of 2021. But, Nick Train, one of the UK’s highest profile fund managers still likes the stock. He holds it in his Finsbury & Growth Income Trust portfolio. In fact, as at 31 January 2020, Unilever shares makes up 9.2% of the investment trust.So if Train likes the company, does that mean I should buy the stock in my portfolio? I’m not really convinced by Unilever’s investment case, but I’ll keep my eyes on the stock. Here’s 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…Competition is increasingLet me start by mentioning that Unilever operates under three divisions including beauty & personal care, home care, and food & refreshments. I think it has some of the best consumers brands. Persil, Ben & Jerry’s, Knorr, Lipton, Dove, and Vaseline are just a few of them.Unilever states that 2.5bn people across the world uses its products everyday. To me, that’s impressive. The global nature of its brands means that Unilever’s portfolio has some durability. But competition is increasing, especially from smaller and cheaper brands.This means that Unilever may have to compete over price. In my opinion, this is never a good thing. I reckon this could squeeze the company’s margins, which in turn may place pressure on the dividend. Especially when revenue and profitability growth has been limited over the past few years.Unilever shares currently offer an attractive dividend yield of 3%, which makes it a favourite among income investors. The company recently raised its quarterly dividend. But the increasing level of competition and potential margin and dividend squeeze makes me somewhat uncomfortable holding the shares in my portfolio.UnificationUnilever has recently completed a legal unification. This means that, unlike before, it now operates under a single parent company called Unilever PLC. But what does this mean for the shares?Well, I reckon it acts as a springboard for future growth. I think a simpler legal structure makes things like disposals and acquisitions easier. Rather than dealing with multiple companies, it will deal with one entity.This all makes sense to me but I’d like to see some evidence first. Unilever has announced that it will sell its tea business, which has only been growing in the low single-digits. To me, it’s rational to get rid of something that hasn’t been helping overall growth. For now, I think I’ll continue to monitor Unilever shares to see some evidence that the simple unified legal structure works.Covid-19Even before the coronavirus pandemic struck, Unilever’s sales growth had been sluggish. It’s well established in the developed countries but it had been focused on expanding sales in the emerging markets. But even Unilever’s business wasn’t immune from Covid-19.Earlier this month, Unilever reported a modest increase in its 2020 full-year sales. But I think the shares took a hit because profitability declined significantly. E-commerce grew by 61% and now online sales count for 9% of sales.While vaccines are now available, this pandemic isn’t over yet. My concern is that lockdowns and government restrictions could persist, which could hinder Unilever’s business. This could also impact the dividend.In my opinion, Unilever has an ambitious target to deliver 3%-5% underlying sales growth per year in the long term. I’d much rather see some improvement on the sluggish growth before buying the stock. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Nadia Yaqublast_img read more

Located in the south of France near Montpellier, in the village of Saint Aunès, the house takes place on a land of vines, cultivated since the Romans, bathed by the sun of the Mediterranean Sea, a short 15- minutes drive away. The project includes another building, under construction, whose destination is that of an artist’s workshop for the owners.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanA simple parallelepiped, a cocoon of steel and glass set between two horizontal planes which delimit the view, oriented towards the vibrating light of the south, the volume, light, detached from the ground, seems to rest on the green of the original vine. The two white lines of the gangway, slender and taut, draw a minimal intervention, on a vegetable background formed of cypresses, fig trees, laurels and other olive trees. The drawing is meant to be purified, a striking contrast between the hand of man and the work of nature, complementary, balanced, without harming or diminishing the presence of the other.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stéphane NikolasPlaced on a concrete base, an expression of durability and solidity, the steel cage of the structure, with optimized spans and stitches, wants to express the lightness and transparency of a habitat completely open on the outside. Bathed in the sun, catching its rays in winter, when it is low, protected from its flames in summer when it rises in the sky, the interior of the house is one with the garden, visually and physically. The bay windows of the south facade open on the entire stay and allow to extend it on the outer passageway, the terrace and the garden below.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stéphane NikolasThe surface is not important. What is important is the perception of volume and the relation to nature, outside, which multiply the spatial sensation.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stéphane NikolasMade for a family of three, two adults and a boy, the program responds to a request for two bedrooms, a guest room, an office/library, and a large basement for the cellar and garage.Save this picture!Courtesy of Stéphane NikolasThe metal frame was constructed as a Mecano, assembled and bolted on site, with cold bent sections. Fixed on the base of the cellar it has been dressed externally of an aluminum corrugated siding that corresponds to the industrial character of the structure, visible on the posts or the gangway. The large thermal insulation that fills the interstices of the framework allows a very small loss, compensated in winter by the solar contributions and an air/water heat pump that feed the heating by the ground. A thermodynamic hot water balloon coupled with a single flow ventilation produces the necessary hot water.

The authority had found that the charges against the employee were proved (Theft of 19 CST-9 plates and 1 1 coach trolley). The punishment of compulsory retirement from service with immediate effect was imposed. In appeal, the Apex Court bench referred to the following judgments with respect to interference by the High Courts with findings in a departmental enquiry against a public servant:  State of Andhra Pradesh v S.Sree Rama Rao, State of Andhra Pradesh v. Chitra Venkata Rao, State of Rajasthan & Ors. v. Heem Singh, Union of India v. P. Gunasekaran, Union of India v. G. Ganayutham ,Director General RPF v. Ch. Sai Babu , Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board v T.T. Murali, Union of India v. Manab Kumar Guha. It noted the following observations made in P. Gunasekaran:”Under Articles 226 / 227 of the Constitution of India, the High Court shall not (i) re-appreciate the evidence; (ii) interfere with the conclusions in the enquiry, in the case the same has been conducted in accordance with law; (iii) go into the adequacy of the evidence; (iv) go into the reliability of the evidence; (v) interfere, if there be some legal evidence on which findings can be based; (vi) correct the error of fact however grave it may appear to be; (vii) go into the proportionality of punishment unless it shocks its conscience”The court noted that, in the instant case, there is no allegation of malafides against the disciplinary authority i.e. Chief Security Commissioner, or lack of competence of the disciplinary authority in passing the order of compulsory retirement, or of a breach of the principles of natural justice, or that the findings were based on no evidence. The High Court was not justified in re-appraising the entire evidence  threadbare as a court of first appeal, and substituting the Order of punishment, by a lesser punishment, without justifiable reason, the court observed. It said:”A police officer in the Railway Protection Force is required to maintain a high standard of integrity in the discharge of his official functions. In this case, the charges proved against the Respondent “were of neglect of duty” which resulted in pecuniary loss to the Railways. The Respondent was a SubInspector in the Railway Police discharging an office of trust and confidence which required absolute integrity. The High Court was therefore not justified in setting aside the order of compulsory retirement, and directing re-instatement with consequential benefits, and payment of backwages to the extent of 50%.”While restoring the order of compulsory retirment, the bench directed the authority to release Gratuity, if due and payable to the former employee from 05.12.2007, within a period of six weeks from today, alongwith interest.CASE: DIRECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE, RAILWAY PROTECTION FORCE vs. RAJENDRA KUMAR DUBEY [CIVIL APPEAL NO. 3820 OF 2020]CORAM: Justices DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and KM JosephClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

first_img Written by June 14, 2019 /Sports News – National Man accused of killing former Iowa State University golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena pleads guilty FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailWOI(NEW YORK) — A man who was accused of killing a former Iowa State University golfer and dumping her body in a pond at a golf course pleaded guilty on Friday.Collin Richards, 22, pleaded guilty to murder in the first degree for the killing of Celia Barquin Arozamena in September 2018, according to a statement from the Story County Attorney’s Office.Richards was not made a plea offer in the case, and per Iowa law, he will be sentenced to mandatory life sentence in prison without the possibility of parole on Aug. 23, the statement said.“My heart is with Celia’s family today with the hope that this result will bring them some level of comfort,” Story County Attorney Jessica Reynolds said in the statement. “Please know our entire community supports you and grieves with you.”Arozamena’s body was found in a pond at the Coldwater Links public golf course near Iowa State University with multiple stab wounds on the morning of Sept. 17, 2018. She had apparently gone golfing alone on that day.Arozamena’s body was found in a pond at the Coldwater Links public golf course near Iowa State University with multiple stab wounds on the morning of Sept. 17, 2018. She had apparently gone golfing alone on that day.A K-9 unit tracked the victim’s scent through the wooded area to a homeless encampment. As police were searching the camp, Richard’s approached them and officers noticed that he had “several fresh scratches on his face consistent with fighting,” and that he also “attempted to conceal a deep laceration to his left hand,” according to a criminal complaint.At the time, Arozamena, a native of Spain, had recently been named Iowa State’s female athlete of the year. She had turned pro after graduating from the college in spring 2018.“This tragic crime is something we have all been moved and saddened by,” the Story County Attorney’s Office statement said. “But we will not let tragedy define us. We will honor the life and memory of Celia by remembering her great spirit and all the lives she touched and made better in the time she spent with us.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Balliol Ball Cancelled

first_imgThe Balliol Speakeasy Ball has been cancelled as a result of “underwhelming” ticket sales.An online statement issued by the Balliol Ball Committee explained that it was “economically impossible” to go ahead with the ball, as ticket sales outside of the College were not strong enough.The decision to cancel the ball was taken by College authorities, after increased attempts at raising the publicity of the ball had failed to boost demand for tickets.The Committee said they were “incredibly disappointed and frustrated that this has happened”.The Ball Secretary explained, “Few sales were made outside of the college. Almost all tickets that were purchased outside of the battel system were bought by close friends of college members, or alumni. We were unable to sell enough tickets to even approach breaking even.”The negative press which followed Balliol’s last summer ball has been cited to as a factor contributing to a lack of interest in this year’s event. Last year’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Ball was followed by complaints relating to the availability of food and drink, as well as the quality of entertainment on offer.In a letter to Balliol JCR, the Ball Committee referred directly to the damage caused to the reputation of Balliol stating such negativity had subsequently “spiraled”.Of the ball’s cancellation, a fourth year Balliol student commented, “In a large part it was due to the bad publicity that they were burdened with from last year. I heard that a large part of the budget was spent on securing DJ Yoda’s appearance, which could have been a mistake.“Most people at Balliol are upset that it has been cancelled. Our balls may not be as glamorous as other Colleges but they are always fun if you’re at Balliol”.The Ball Committee has confirmed that all those who purchased tickets for this year’s ball will be refunded. In a statement addressed to attendees the Committee said, “We can only express our great unhappiness about this unfortunate situation, and apologise to all JCR members that such events have transpired”.The Speakeasy Ball was scheduled to take place on the same night as six other College balls. It faced competition from St Hugh’s Secret Garden Party, which has sold over 2000 tickets, and The Keble Ball, which recently increased its proposed attendance to over 1000 people.The ball was due to be held on Saturday of second week. It promised to transport guest “to a secret world of recklessness and elegance” and was set to feature the hip-hop artist DJ Yoda.The terms of the cancellation will be discussed in detail at the first Balliol JCR general meeting of next term when a Ball Committee report will be delivered to JCR members.last_img read more

Rain Fails to Dampen 3.14-Mile Race on Pi Day

first_imgKindergarten teacher and race organizer Carrie Merritt greets a Pi Day Run finisher with a whipped-cream pie.A cold March rain on Saturday morning didn’t stand in the way of a once-in-a-century opportunity to celebrate pi at a time that matches the first 10 digits of the mathematical constant: 3/14/15 9:26:53 a.m.Several hundred runners lined up on Sixth Street near the Ocean City Primary School on world Pi Day to start a 3.14-mile course that traveled past Ocean City High School to the boardwalk and down to 18th Street (home of Ocean City Intermediate School).By early Friday evening, 355 runners had pre-registered for the first-time event, and many more signed up on race day. A final count of finishers and results are expected to be posted Saturday.Heavy rain, a steady ocean breeze and cold March air didn’t stop hundreds of runners from participating in a Pi Day Run on Saturday on the Ocean City Boardwalk.__________For results, see sjtiming.com__________The event was an effort to integrate Ocean City schools and the community on Pi Day. It also included a children’s run/walk for 10-and-unders — a 314-yard dash. Post-race activities out of the rain in the Ocean City Sports and Civic Center included pie-a-teacher, pie-eating contests, pizza-pie tossing, hula hooping and a small health fair.Ocean City Schools Superintendent Kathleen Taylor had challenged Primary School teachers Carrie Merritt and Erin Porter to see if they could attract 314 runners to the new event, and they far exceeded that goal.The event is co-sponsored by the Ocean City Educators Association (OCEA).At the urging of friends and family, many runners were met at the finish line with whipped-cream pies to the face.The race field included many teachers, students, school sports teams and school families. The celebration of pi continued after the race with a small fair inside the Ocean City Civic Center.last_img read more
