Service sector morale hit by consumer slump

first_img CONSUMER service businesses such as bars and restaurants are suffering from sluggish demand, according to a survey released today.Optimism plummeted 22 percentage points among consumer service executives, who have seen the value and volume of their businesses hit.Employers’ organisation the CBI surveyed 169 service sector firms, covering both consumer services and professional services such as accountancy.Thirty per cent of consumer-sector respondents said the value of their business had risen this quarter, yet 38 per cent reported a fall. And the same balance (-8 per cent) expect a decline in value of trade over the next three months.The poor results were a surprise, after modest growth had been expected.The outlook is a little rosier for professional services. While sentiment is still negative (at -4 per cent), it has recovered from its August low of -17 per cent.Volume of business in professional services is narrowly up, increasing by a percentage point to three per cent.Yet Ian McCafferty of the CBI said uncertainty over consumer demand is causing a fall in business optimism.“Consumers are cutting back on leisure spending, leading to a surprise fall in business volumes and flat profits,” he said.

Best bookmakers for NBA odds

These included the following NBA outright markets: Best bookmakers for NBA odds Marketing & affiliatescenter_img 10bet 188bet 888sport Bet365 Betathome Betfair Betfred Betright Betsafe BetVictor Betway Boylesports Comeon Coral Energybet Ladbrokes LeoVegas Marathonbet NetBet Paddy Power Skybet Sportingbet Titanbet Unibet William Hill Winner SportBest bookmakers for NBA odds While some bookmakers may have a wider, more diverse range of odds and markets available, for betting on traditional NBA markets, the best three bookmakers following our analysis were Coral, Betfred and Ladbrokes.Coral ranked highly across virtually every category in our study, ranking among the best bookmakers for NBA outrights such as NBA Champions 2018/19 and NBA Conference Champions 2018/19. Coral also ranked among the top bookmakers when it came to assessing division winner markets, as well as traditional game markets such as handicaps, points totals over/under and moneylines.Betfred came in second place in our rankings despite not offering division winner markets. However, Betfred ranked among the best bookmakers for NBA Championship and the best overall for NBA Conference winner markets, not to mention coming in second place for moneylines and in the top five for both handicaps and points totals.Ladbrokes completed our top three for NBA odds this season. One of the biggest bookmakers in the UK, Ladbrokes ranked among the best bookmakers across all categories, offering some of the best odds for NBA outright markets such as the NBA Championship and Conference winner markets. Ladbrokes was also a steady performer across NBA division winner markets, not to mention among the best ranking bookmakers for NBA game markets such as handicaps, points totals and handicaps.Paddy Power also deserves a mention for being well ahead of the rest of the pack, but just short of Ladbrokes in third place. Paddy Power is offering some of the best value odds this season on NBA outright markets, as well as NBA game markets, in particular points totals and handicaps.Best bookmakers for NBA outright odds The NBA season can be a grind for game to game bettors. Many successful NBA bettors stay away from game markets early in the season and instead invest in outright markets such as NBA Championship, Conference and Division winners, with the intention of trading out of their position later in the season.At the conclusion of our analysis we determined the best bookmakers for outright betting this season were Betfair, Coral and Paddy Power.Betfair ranked clear of every bookmaker when it came to NBA outrights this season. Betfair ranked among the top bookmakers across each outright category, including the NBA Championship, Eastern and Western Conferences, and each of the six NBA Division winner markets.Coral came in second place, ranking among the best for outright markets, with Paddy Power in third place just behind Coral. Both bookmakers are offering among the best value odds for NBA outright betting this season.Best bookmakers for NBA traditional game odds While many punters enjoy the occasional prop bet or dipping into the full range of exotics, the majority of NBA bettors focus on traditional markets such as moneylines (game result), handicaps and points totals.After ranking each bookmaker in our study, we determined the top three bookmakers for traditional NBA game markets this season were Marathonbet, Betfred and William Hill.Marathonbet were the clear winners in this category, ranking best across moneylines, handicaps and points totals.Betfred came in second place, offering among the best odds for traditional NBA game markets, in particular moneylines. William Hill ranked in third place for traditional NBA game markets, sharing second place with Betfred when it came to NBA moneylines.NBA betting this season Betting throughout the entirely of the NBA season is a grind that few bettors have the stamina or discipline for. But there are a significant number of bettors who’ve done their research , conducted a rich analysis of traditional betting markets and are keen to trade on NBA outright markets. Therefore the NBA season can provide a consistent flow of punters to bookmakers which make sure their odds are competitive.About bettingexpert.com Providing expert tips and in depth betting theory, bettingexpert.com is the world’s biggest social network of sports betting tipsters.

Kambi H1 revenue stable despite Q2 decline

first_imgSports betting Tags: Online Gambling Kambi H1 revenue stable despite Q2 decline Sports betting supplier Kambi’s revenue for the first half of 2020 ticked slightly upward to €42.7m in the first half of 2020, despite second-quarter revenue declining 31.6% to €14.8m. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovationcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 24th July 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Sports betting supplier Kambi’s revenue for the first half of 2020 ticked slightly upward to €42.7m (£38.9m/$49.5m) in the first half of 2020, despite second-quarter revenue declining 31.6% to €14.8m.Of Kambi’s €14.8m in revenue for the quarter, €11.0m came from regulated markets. Although this represented a decline in raw numbers, it was an increase as a percentage of Kambi’s overall revenue, from 71% to 74%. Kambi’s revenue from Europe came to €10.8m, representing a decline from a 77% share of revenue to a 73% share.The supplier did not reveal its operators’ turnover levels, but said that this declined 33% while operator trading margin came to 8.2%.Kambi chief executive Kristian Nylén said that not only was he impressed by the fact that revenue did not decline too drastically after the almost complete stoppage of global sports, but also that operator turnover grew-year-on-year in June. June also generated 47% of the quarter’s operator turnover, while 33% occured in May and just 20% in April.“Given the impact the pandemic is having on the sporting calendar, to generate 68% of the revenues of the comparative quarter last year is a great achievement,” Nylén said. “Furthermore, operator turnover accelerated through the period, finishing with year-on-year growth for June, which tells me we are on the right track as a business and well positioned for the second half of 2020 and beyond.”Nylén added that golf and UFC proved to be especially successful sports for Kambi during the quarter.Kambi’s operating expenses, however, were greater than revenue, declining only 4.5% to €18.1m. The largest expense was staff costs, which ticked down 0.2% to €8.6m. Amortisation costs, meanwhile, grew 29.8% to €3.0m while data supplier costs rost 5.9% to €2.0m.Other operating expenses, meanwhile, fell 27.8% to €4.5m.These costs created an operating loss of €3.4m, compared to a €2.5m profit in the second quarter of 2019.After a €157,000 net financial loss, Kambi made a pre-tax loss of €3.5m, compared to a €2.4m profit the year prior. After paying €466,000 in taxes, Kambi made a loss of €3.0m, after a €1.6m profit in 2019.Following currency adjustments, Kambi’s loss for the quarter came to €2.9m, compared to a €921,000 profit in 2019.For the first half of 2020, however, Kambi’s profit of €42.7m was 0.1% higher than its profit in the first half of 2019.Operating expenses, however, grew 4.5% to €39.2m. Of these expenses, staff costs grew 12.7% to €19.1m, amortisation costs grew 29.0% to €5.9m, data suppliercosts grew 21.7% to €4.7m and other operating expenses declined 21.4% to €9.5m.These costs led to an operating profit of €3.5m, down 32.3%. After financial costs of €326,000, Kambi’s profit before items affecting comparability came to €3.2m, down 65.1%.The business incurred an additional, nonrecurring €590,000 cost in bad debts related to Bulgarian operator National Lottery AD, which had its licence revoked by the Bulgarian State Gambling Commission in March over unpaid taxes as its owner Vasil Bozhkov found himself in legal trouble.This led to a pre-tax profit of €2.6m, down 47.0% year-on-year. After paying income taxes of €851,000, Kambi’s profit came to €1.7m, down 51.6%.Kambi made a loss of a further €1m through currency translation adjustments, leaving it with a profit of €722,000 for the half, down 74.3%.Nylén added that while revenue was obviously below start-of-year expectations, he was proud of how they showed Kambi’s ability to handle adversity.“Of course, the financial numbers published today aren’t as I would have hoped back when we were planning for 2020, but they do reflect a business able to deliver when faced with both adversity and uncertainty,” Kambi said.Yesterday (July 23), Kambi and high-profile client US sports betting giant DraftKings, announced that they have reached an agreement to cooperate on DraftKings’ planned migration from Kambi’s back-end platform services to SBTech’s platform, with DraftKings and Kambi agreeing a termination date of 30 September, 2021 for their partnership. DraftKings agreed to merge with SBTech, spelling the end of its Kambi partnership, in December 2019, with the deal closing in April.Kambi will receive full revenue until the date of termination.Today (24 July), Unibet operator Kindred Group, from which Kambi was spun off, reported a year-on-year rise in revenue during the first half of the year. Kindred said that this rise was down positive performances across a number of markets, as well as its ongoing focus on product differentiation.

PV Sindu accepts Tendulkar’s Kit Up challenge, first to post…

first_imgLatest Sports NewsSports BusinessNewsSportSportstars PV Sindu accepts Tendulkar’s Kit Up challenge, first to post video Cricket By Kunal Dhyani – June 29, 2018 PV Sindhu has taken the lead in accepting Sachin Tendulkar’s “Kit Up Challenge”.

These UK shares have plunged 20% in a month! Here’s why I’d buy

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Fisher (James) & Sons. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Many UK shares have rallied strongly over the past month. Since the end of October, for example, the FTSE 250 has added 14%. However, some stocks have bucked the trend. They’ve slumped while the broader market has rallied. 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…In some cases, I think investors have overacted. With at least three coronavirus vaccines now in the pipeline, I believe the economy is set to roar back to life in 2021. As such, I’d use recent declines to snap up these investments while they’re trading at low levels.UK shares on offer The first company that’s appeared on my radar recently is magazine publisher Future (LSE: FUTR). Over the past few years, this organisation has developed a winning strategy in the magazine business. It’s been buying up numerous smaller publishers and then using its size to get costs down. The firm has also been able to make the most of its internet real estate. Its specialist publications provide advertisers with niche audiences. In the ‘Wild West’ online advertising market, this gives the business an edge. Advertisers have been willing to pay a premium to get exposure to Future’s customers online. This initiative has pushed profits higher, making the group one of the best performing UK shares of recent years. Management’s latest acquisition target is the comparison website Gocompare’s owner, GoCo Plc. The stock dropped on the news of the announcement, but considering Future’s track record of integrating acquisitions, I think this could be an excellent opportunity to buy this growth stock at a discount price. If management can replicate the success the business has achieved in the past with previous acquisitions, I reckon Future can achieve large total returns for investors in the medium term. Service company Another one of the cheap UK shares that I’m currently eyeing up is James Fisher And Sons (LSE: FSJ). This business, which provides a range of services to the marine sector, has fallen out of favour with investors in 2020. It’s easy to understand why. Profits are expected to slump by 51% this year. Nevertheless, it appears to me that much of this decline is already reflected in James Fisher’s share price. Since the beginning of 2020, the value of the company has declined by more than 50%. Analysts are forecasting a rapid recovery in earnings next year. Growth of nearly 50% has been pencilled in for 2021. On this basis, it looks to me as if the market is focusing too much on the negative short-term new flow and not on James Fisher’s long term potential, which is the case with many other UK shares. Therefore, I believe now could be an excellent time to add the stock to my portfolio. As the economy begins to recover in 2021, and the group’s earnings rebound, I reckon it’s likely the market will re-evaluate James Fisher’s prospects.In my opinion, this combination of earnings growth and improved investor sentiment could help the stock outperform other UK shares.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 26th November, 2020 | More on: FSJ FUTR 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.

TPP dangerous to world’s workers, poor

first_imgSan Diego On June 12, as part of a legislative maneuver, Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives voted against and defeated part of a package bill that would have given “fast track” authority to President Barack Obama to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The result in the U.S. Congress is still pending. The union and environmental movements in the U.S. have mobilized to defeat the TPP.The TPP is a so-called free trade agreement, this one with 11 other Pacific Rim nations: Australia, Brunei, Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam and Japan. Secret negotiations for the TPP have been underway since 2010.Fast track authority means that the U.S. president is authorized to negotiate secretly to reach an agreement which then must be voted on within two months with a direct up or down vote. No amendments to the agreement are permitted, no filibuster in the Senate will be allowed, and only a simple majority is needed to pass.The TPP bill has been surrounded by extreme secrecy: members of Congress must view the contents alone with no supporting staff. No smart phones, computers or cameras are allowed, and members are not allowed to take written notes. Drafts of the bill will remain classified for four years after the agreement is adopted!On the surface, the vote appeared to be an aberration. Right-wing Republicans, who usually profess their hatred for Obama, led the charge to give sweeping authority to him, while the majority of Democrats opposed the bill.Free trade and imperialismThe TPP is just one of a triad of “free trade” agreements currently being negotiated around the world. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a proposed agreement between the European Union and the U.S. The Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) negotiations cover the U.S., the EU and 23 other countries including Turkey, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Pakistan, Taiwan and Israel. The TISA is an attempt to recognize the fact that “services” now account for nearly 80 percent of the U.S and EU economies.All three of these proposed pacts notably exclude the so-called BRICS countries — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — which have attempted to counter the U.S juggernaut towards world economic hegemony.All of these agreements are being pushed under the slogan of “free trade,” which, it is claimed, will bring prosperity for all. Nothing could be further from the truth. As Sam Marcy, a former chairperson of Workers World Party, remarked in describing an earlier free trade agreement:“In the contemporary world struggle, the bourgeoisie still postures as the champion of free trade. But it is not the free trade of the old competitive stage of capitalism. It is the free trade of giant imperialist monopolies.” (“Free trade, monopoly and NAFTA,” Workers World, 1993)In fact, 95 percent of the TPP is not directly related to trade per se, but to the deregulation of investment by multinational corporations — to their advantage.The Wikileaks revelationsDespite the extreme measures taken to keep the negotiations secret, a lot of information has leaked out about what the the TPP contains. Since 2013, WikiLeaks, an organization which has in the past revealed secrets about war crimes by the U.S and its allies in Iraq and Afghanistan, has published dozens of secret documents from the TPP negotiations, including the negotiating positions taken by various countries.Nevertheless, details of the massive treaty, affecting 40 percent of the world’s economy, remain secret. According to Julian Assange, the leader of WikiLeaks, who is still confined in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, “Six hundred U.S companies are part of the negotiation process and have been given access to various parts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.” (quoted in inquisitr.com, May 31)Assange warns that the deal could give corporations a massive advantage with environmental and labor laws.“It’s about regulating labor, what labor conditions can be applied, regulating, whether you can favor local industry, regulating the hospital health care system, privatization of hospitals. So essentially, every aspect of the modern economy, even banking services, are in the TPP.” (inquisitr.com)An especially pernicious provision of the TPP is the establishment of unaccountable supranational courts that would allow multinational corporations to sue countries outside of their own judicial systems. Although the “Investor-State Dispute Resolution” tribunals mainly target the sovereignty of developing nations, they would also apply within the U.S.The definitions empowering the ISDR’s are so broad that they could be used to attack everything from regulating hydrofracking and anti-tobacco laws to the regulation of multinational banks.According to the consumer advocacy organization Public Citizen, the TPP pact could “expose Medicare to pharmaceutical company attacks and constrain future policy reforms, including the ability of the U.S. government to curb rising and unsustainable drug prices.” (citizen.org, June 10)One target of the new pact appears to be the public health care systems of New Zealand and Australia, which, because of their successful control of drug and medical devices prices, have been touted as models for many countries in the developing world.The Trans-Pacific Partnership, along with the other so-called free trade pacts being negotiated, is a mortal danger to the laboring masses of the entire planet. These pacts are nothing less than an attempt to make an end run around the fierce resistance which is steadily building among the 99%. That’s why so many popular organizations and unions are demanding: Stop the TPP!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Farmers in Japan.last_img read more
