After consolidating its shares in February and paying a special dividend of 50.93p, the Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price has stayed mainly flat ever since. This is despite the company announcing fairly strong full-year results. As such, do I think that the Tesco share price is too cheap or is there very limited upside potential?Trading updateThe trading update had many positive aspects, as well as some issues. From a positive perspective, revenues were fairly strong at £57.9bn. This was only a 0.4% drop from the previous year. Furthermore, excluding fuel sales, revenues were actually 7% higher than the previous year. A 7% rise is impressive and demonstrates how Tesco has performed well during the pandemic. This result also shows the negative impact of fuel sales on revenues, something that should be able to improve this year due to rising oil prices and more demand.  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…Notwithstanding the special dividend, Tesco’s dividend also came to 9.15p for the year. This equates to a yield of 4%, and I can see limited risk of it being cut any time soon. In comparison to the majority of other FTSE 100 stocks, this is strong.Nonetheless, operating costs for the firm did increase, and this meant that operating profits were 28% lower than the previous year. This was also due to the poor performance of Tesco Bank, which saw a full-year loss of £175m. As such, the trading update was not all positive, and this means that the Tesco share price has not risen significantly since.What does the future hold?Fortunately for the supermarket, many of its Covid-linked costs are likely to be short term. This means that I can see a recovery of profits for the company over the next couple of years. Furthermore, Tesco was able to increase its market share for the first time in four years, showing promise for the future. As such, I believe that steady growth is on the cards.Nonetheless, this recovery of profits is far from guaranteed. Indeed, there’s the risk that customers start spending significantly less at supermarkets in favour of going out to restaurants and pubs and shopping at other retailers now they’re open. If the number of customers favouring online shopping decreases after the pandemic, this may also benefit discount supermarkets such as Lidl and Aldi, that don’t have an online presence. As such, the increase in Tesco’s market share may be short-lived.Is the Tesco share price too cheap?With a price-to-earnings ratio of 19, the Tesco share price looks reasonably priced to me, rather than an absolute bargain. This means that I can’t see significant upside potential and I’m not going to add it to my portfolio.Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean that I think Tesco is a bad stock. Indeed, its dividend of over 4% is very tempting, and compared to the other supermarkets, I would say that it has a competitive edge. I just feel that there are other stocks out there with higher growth potential. This is why I’m not buying Tesco now.  Stuart Blair | Monday, 24th May, 2021 | More on: TSCO center_img Image: Tesco Stuart Blair has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

EPPN: Protect the Arctic Refuge

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Featured Jobs & Calls Associate Rector Columbus, GA Posted Sep 27, 2017 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Director of Music Morristown, NJ Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Faith & Politics Rector Martinsville, VA [Episcopal Public Policy Network policy alert] The bishops of the Episcopal Church recently returned from a meeting in Alaska where they encountered the pressing need to address issues relating to the environment. In their Letter to the Church, the bishops of The Episcopal Church stated: “You are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are … members of the household of God” (Ephesians 2:19). The residents of interior Alaska whom they met are not strangers; they are members of the same household of faith.Among those “members of the household of God” the bishops met in Alaska were members of the Gwich’in nation. An indigenous people, the Gwich’in have lived in the area today called the Arctic Refuge for more than 10,000 years through subsistence hunting. While they are today overwhelmingly Episcopalian, the Gwich’in nation’s historic cultural and religious traditions hold that an area within their land where the caribou calf their young is called “the sacred place where life begins.” As the bishops lead Episcopalians in their prayer:Give us new ears to hear and understand those who live off the landand to hear and understand those who extract its resources.Give us new hearts to recognize the brokenness in our communitiesand to heal the wounds we have inflicted.Give us new hands to serve the earth and its peopleand to shape beloved community.This sacred land is under threat. Congress is about to vote on plans that would open the Coastal Plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil exploration. The Episcopal Church has long stood by the Gwich’in, defending their right to exist and feed themselves. As the bishops of the church call us to prayer, education, and reconciliation, we must also act.Take action now: ask Congess to stand against any harmful changes in the status of the Artic National Wildlife Refuge Coastal Plain!

Martin Johnson sidestep try for Leicester in 2002

first_imgTuesday Aug 5, 2008 Martin Johnson sidestep try for Leicester in 2002 While the ELV debate from yesterday’s posting rages on, it’s probably a good time to show something completely different, this time in the form of a great try from the past. While many people wouldn’t normally associate former England captain Martin Johnson with his running ability, this try is refreshingly good for a man who is over two meters tall and weighed close to 120kg’s back then. The try comes from the Zurich Premiership, as it was known at the time, and is against Harlequins in what we think can only be the 2001/2002 season. It was a successful period in Leicester rugby history, with the club winning both the Premiership and the Heineken Cup in 2002.Leicester’s longest ever serving captain then led England to victory with the Grand Slam the following year, followed by the World Cup win in Australia. He was a hard man who’s style of play was uncompromising, but he was highly respected and his leadership was such that many name him as one of the greatest captains of all. He is currently at the helm of English rugby, and hoping to turn their fortunes around and achieve greatness once again, this time in the coaching role.After all the plaudits, it’s safe to say that this certainly wasn’t what people would have expected him to be capable of. Can such a big man can actually sidestep, or more specifically, can this can be classified as one? It was probably more a change of direction, but was a helluva good finish either way because it resulted in five points for Leicester and bragging rights for the big guy.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Fighting Syracuse University students say, “We will not submit!”

first_imgPhoto: Mark RuppertSyracuse, N.Y. — On Day 18 of the student sit-in at Syracuse University’s administration building, “THE General Body,” a united front of student groups, announced they were closing the occupation in order to move to Phase II of organizing against the corporate takeover of their school. (thegeneralbody.org)In a press conference, student spokespeople said: “We will not submit!” They emphasized their fight was for “the life and death needs” of all 21,000 students at the university. Their core demands included support for students of color; women; lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people; and students with disabilities, and also included support for the struggle for a healthy environment and planet.Students are now forming a coalition with SU staff and faculty, both unionized and nonunionized, to win their demands from the administration.The new chancellor of Syracuse University, Kent Syverud, has cut programs for women and people who have been raped or sexually harassed; cut programs for low-income students and students of color; and cut services for students with physical and mental disabilities.Syverud, a lawyer, was one of two trustees named by British Petroleum to administer the $20 billion Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Trust. Set up by BP, the trust was supposed to meet claims from the BP drilling platform explosion in April 2010, which caused catastrophic damage in the Gulf of Mexico.  Four years later, BP has cleaned up less than one-third of the spill, and many people in the region, most in need of help, have received no or token compensation. (New York Times, Oct. 29)Support for students has been growing from alumni, parents and the local community. THE General Body received messages of support from 1199 SEIU, United Healthcare Workers East and Adjuncts United, and from students at other universities across the country, including Colgate, where students mounted a five-day sit-in earlier in the fall.THE General Body issued a statement of solidarity “with the national protests proclaiming #BlackLivesMatter” in the wake of the Ferguson grand jury decision not to indict the white officer who killed Mike Brown, an unarmed Black teenager.On Nov. 20, students, teachers and staff marched together out of the administration building, chanting: “The people united will never be defeated! ¡El pueblo unido jamás será vencido!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

USDA December Reports at a Glance

first_img SHARE QUICK TAKE: Wednesday USDA trimmed domestic corn ending stocks to just below 2 billion bushels and soybean stocks to 410 million bushels. USDA increased world wheat ending stocks while traders had expected a cut. USDA boosted Canadian and Kazakhstan production, leading to a 2 million metric ton increase in global ending stocks.CORN: USDA left the corn balance sheet mostly unchanged except for the food, seed and industrial use category. Corn use for sweeteners is expected to increase 10 million bushels in the 2014/15 marketing year, leading to a corresponding 10 million bushel decline in ending stocks. Global corn ending stocks increased to 192.2 million metric tons.SOYBEANS: USDA increased its expectation for soybean exports by 40 million bushels, reflecting the record export pace and prospects for additional sales and shipments ahead of South America’s harvest. The increased sales dropped ending stocks to 410 million bushels.Globally, ending stocks declined slightly from last month to 89.9 million metric tons.WHEAT: USDA put domestic ending stocks at 654 million bushels, up 10 million from last month’s report due to a corresponding increase of durum wheat imports from Canada. USDA expects hard red winter wheat exports declining 15 million bushels but that will be offset by 5 million increase in exports of spring wheat, white wheat and durum wheat. Globally, ending stocks increased as USDA incorporated Canadian government data that showed a 1.8 million metric ton increase in production to 29.3.OILSEEDS: Total U.S. oilseed production for 2014/15 is projected at 117.0 million tons, down slightly due to a small reduction in cottonseed. Soybean crush was unchanged. Global oilseed production for 2014/15 is projected at a record 530.7 million tons, up 1.8 million tons from last month. Foreign oilseed production accounts for most of the change on increases for soybeans, rapeseed, and sunflower seed.SUGAR: U.S. 2014/15 total sugar supply is increased 189,844 short tons, raw value \from last month to 13.919 million. Based on sugarcane processors’ forecasts, Florida sugar production is increased by 144,869 STRV due to increased sugarcane yield and area, and Texas cane sugar production is increased by 2,865 STRV due to increased yield. Imports are increased by 42.LIVESTOCK, POULTRY, AND DAIRY: The forecast for total meat production in 2014 is lowered from last month, as lower beef production in the fourth quarter more than offsets increased pork production. Beef production is reduced as slaughter is expected lower. A small revision is made to third-quarter broiler slaughter but the forecasts for fourth quarter broiler and turkey production are unchanged. The milk production forecast for 2014 is unchanged from last month, but is lowered for 2015 as growth in milk per cow is expected to be more moderate. COTTON: The U.S. cotton supply and demand estimates for 2014/15 include lower production and ending stocks compared to last month. Production is reduced 474,000 bales, due mainly to a lower crop estimate for Texas. Domestic mill use and exports are unchanged. Ending stocks are now forecast at 4.6 million bales. Global cotton ending stocks for 2014/15 are raised again this month, as a lower consumption forecast is partially offset by lower production.

Trump spoke Thursday before a gathering of pastors and their spouses in Orlando, Florida.The Johnson Amendment, named after then-Senator Lyndon Johnson, bars religious organizations and charitable organizations, who enjoy tax-exempt privileges, from endorsing candidates or opposing them.The Amendment played a central role in a 2006 investigation of All Saints Church in Pasadena by the Internal Revenue Service after Rev. George F. Regas delivered a guest sermon questioning the Iraq War two days before the 2004 presidential election.In the sermon, Regas depicted Jesus in a mock debate with then presidential candidates George W. Bush and John F. Kerry. The sermon did not endorse either candidate.The sermon prompted a letter from the IRS stating that “a reasonable belief exists that you may not be a tax-exempt church.”The case was the last significant instance that the IRS investigated a church for political speech.At the time, church leaders and parishioners said the probe was an assault on their constitutional rights because the IRS wanted all materials [newsletters, e-mails and other records] with political references created in the 2004 election year given to them and for then Rev. Ed Bacon, rector, to appear before tax investigators.A service at All Saints Church, Pasadena.A spokesman for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a watchdog group, told the Los Angeles Times he had “never heard of a church being asked to undergo such a sweeping, broad and deep investigation on the basis of a complaint about a single sermon by a guest speaker.”The IRS dropped the investigation in 2007.At the Rediscovering God in America conference in Orlando Thursday, Trump said the Johnson Amendment has held back Evangelical leaders from going all out in endorsing him as the next U.S. president, a report on Christian Times said.“We’ll get it out,” Trump spoke before the gathering of Evangelical pastors. “We’ll be able to terminate the Johnson Amendment. And you’ll have great power to do good things and religion will start going instead of this way (motioning with his hand downward).”Trump also made the same promise when he accepted his nomination at the Republican National Congress in Cleveland last month.“I am going to work very hard to repeal that language and protect free speech for all Americans,” he said at the convention.In Orlando, Trump said he became aware of the Johnson Amendment after his first meeting with religious leaders months ago.

KalVista Pharmaceuticals Reports Positive Results for KVD900 Phase 2 Demonstrating Statistically and Clinically Significant…

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & SALISBURY, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– KalVista Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: KALV), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of small molecule protease inhibitors, today announced positive topline data from a Phase 2 clinical trial demonstrating statistically and clinically significant efficacy of KVD900 as an oral on-demand treatment for hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks. “We are very excited to share this positive data which shows that KVD900 is the first oral therapy to achieve clinical efficacy results comparable to current injectable therapies, while also demonstrating a promising safety and tolerability profile. The rapid onset of symptom relief and significant reduction in the use of rescue medication show that patients can confidently take KVD900 at the earliest signs of an attack and avoid the burden and discomfort of injections,” said Andrew Crockett, Chief Executive Officer of KalVista. “We look forward to working with regulatory agencies to bring the many advantages of KVD900 to patients as quickly as possible. In parallel, we remain committed to advancing our oral HAE franchise, with submission of an IND this quarter for KVD824 as a prophylactic treatment and ongoing preclinical work on our oral Factor XIIa program.” The KVD900 Phase 2 was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of KVD900 as an on-demand treatment for hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks. The trial completed 53 adult HAE patients from 25 clinical sites in the United States and Europe. The trial included type 1 and type 2 HAE patients who had three attacks in 90 days prior to enrollment. During the first part of the two-part trial, patients received a single, open label 600 mg dose of KVD900 to evaluate pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties. All patients then entered part two of the trial, which was a double-blind investigation to assess the efficacy of KVD900 compared to placebo in a two‑attack, crossover design. During part two of the trial, patients took a single dose of 600 mg of KVD900 or placebo within one hour of the start of the first attack. The second attack was dosed with the alternative crossover treatment. Patients were able to use their conventional rescue treatment, as required. Topline Phase 2 ResultsAttacks treated with KVD900 significantly reduced use of rescue (p=0.001), with 15% of KVD900 treated attacks rescued compared to 30% on placebo at 12 hours.This efficacy benefit of KVD900 was maintained at 24 hours (p=0.0005). Previous articleGeorgia, No. 16 Tennessee meet in conference playNext articleMagellan Healthcare Presents Clinical Model for Serving the Behavioral Health Needs of High-Risk Children and Adolescents Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 Facebook Twitter Facebook KVD900 significantly reduced time to onset of symptom relief (p=<0.0001) on a Patient Global Impression of Change scale (PGI-C), with a median time of 1.6 hours versus 9 hours for attacks treated with placebo.KVD900 treated attacks achieved symptom relief more quickly than placebo treated attacks (p<0.0001) when assessed using a composite Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) score.Within 12 hours of oral administration, KVD900 significantly increased the number of stabilized or improved attacks when assessed by a Patient Global Impression of Severity scale (PGI-S) or use of rescue (p<0.0001).Additional exploratory endpoints were also statistically significant and favored KVD900 treatment over placebo.There were no serious adverse events reported in the trial and no patients withdrew due to adverse events. In the open-label phase, 8 on-treatment drug-related treatment emergent adverse event (TEAE) were experienced by 5 patients. In the crossover phase of the trial, 3 on-treatment drug-related TEAEs were experienced by 3 patients (5.2%) following administration of KVD900, and 2 on-treatment drug-related TEAEs were experienced by 2 patients (3.6%) following administration of placebo. “Today’s data show that KVD900 halts HAE attack progression and also provides rapid relief by shortening the time to symptom resolution,” said Dr. Emel Aygören-Pürsün, Principal Investigator for the KVD900 Phase 2 Clinical Trial and Head of the HAE Center at the University Hospital Frankfurt. “The results are highly encouraging. For patients, easy and efficacious oral on-demand treatment of attacks is now within reach." The Company will post a presentation with data from the Phase 2 clinical trial of KVD900 on the investors section of the company website at www.kalvista.com. The Company plans to present the full data for the KVD900 Phase 2 study at a future medical meeting. Conference Call KalVista will be holding a Conference Call today at 8:30 a.m. ET to discuss the KVD900 Phase 2 clinical results. The webcast can be accessed on www.kalvista.com or by dialing (833) 714-2255 (US) or (207) 823-1864 (International) and referencing ID 2429345.

Existing-Home Sales Continue Surge While First-Time Buyer Sales Fall

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Existing-Home Sales Continue Surge While First-Time Buyer Sales Fall  Print This Post Existing-Home Sales Continue Surge While First-Time Buyer Sales Fall Sign up for DS News Daily Existing-home sales rose higher in July, while low inventory levels and rising prices are the largest factors lowering sales to first-time buyers to their lowest share since January, according to a report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) released Thursday.Total existing-home sales rose 2.0 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.59 million in July from a downwardly-revised 5.48 million in June. July sales were at the highest pace since 5.79 million in February 2007. Existing sales have now increased year-over-year for 10 consecutive months and are 10.3 percent above the pace a year ago at 5.07 million.The report also found that single-family home sales increased 2.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.96 million in July to their highest level since 5.08 million in February 2007. Single-family sales were 4.83 million in June, and are now 11.0 percent above the 4.47 million pace a year ago.Source: NAHBMany economists believe that the growth in existing-home sales can be mostly attributed to growth in the employment sector.“In some markets, this boost has been led by job growth –a key sign that the recovery is on track,” said Selma Hepp, Trulia’s chief economist. “As millennial employment improves, young adults will continue to move out of their parents’ homes and form their own households, first as renters and then as homeowners.”Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, added, “The creation of jobs added at a steady clip and the prospect of higher mortgage rates and home prices down the road is encouraging more households to buy now. As a result, current homeowners are using their increasing housing equity towards the down payment on their next purchase.”According to the NAR, the median existing-home price for all housing types in July was $234,000, which is 5.6 percent above July 2014. This in increase marks the 41st consecutive month of year-over-year gains. The median existing single-family home price was $235,500 in July, up 5.8 percent from July 2014.”Despite the strong growth in sales since this spring, declining affordability could begin to slowly dampen demand,” Yun said. “Realtors in some markets reported slower foot traffic in July in part because of low inventory and concerns about the continued rise in home prices without commensurate income gains.”“The creation of jobs added at a steady clip and the prospect of higher mortgage rates and home prices down the road is encouraging more households to buy now.” —Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economistNAR reported that total housing inventory declined 0.4 percent to 2.24 million existing homes available for sale at the end of July. This total is now 4.7 percent lower than a year ago when inventory levels reached 2.35 million.“Tight inventory across the country continues to put pressure on home prices,” Hepp said. “As more potential buyers are being pushed out of the market, home sellers may be reluctant to sell if there is a perception that they might not be able to find another home to buy–thus perpetuating the problem.”Another decline was recorded in the percent share of first-time buyers in July for the second consecutive month. First-time buyers in July lowered to 28 percent from 30 percent in June, the lowest share since January of this year which was 28 percent.”The fact that first-time buyers represented a lower share of the market compared to a year ago even though sales are considerably higher is indicative of the challenges many young adults continue to face,” Yun said. “Rising rents and flat wage growth make it difficult for many to save for a down payment, and the dearth of supply in affordable price ranges is limiting their options.”Lisa Edwards, director of business strategy with Forsalebyowner.com, told DS News that she believes that challenges will always persist with first-time homebuyers. She also added that market conditions like “faster wage growth, continued relaxed lending standards, and interest rates hovering around 4 percent” will be needed to reach first-time buyers.Click here to view the complete NAR report.  The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Housing Markets are Strongest Where Values Exceed Pre-Crisis Levels Next: FDIC Suit Claims BNY Mellon Breached Trustee Duties for $2 Billion Worth of RMBS Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Xhevrije West in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Tagged with: Existing Home Sales First-Time Homebuyers Housing Inventory Housing Market National Association of Realtorscenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles August 20, 2015 1,430 Views Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.
