First came the unsolicited bid – at $39.6bn (£25.5bn), BHP Billiton’s offer is a 20 per cent premium to PotashCorp’s undisturbed share price – which was immediately knocked back. Then came the anguished rhetoric from PotashCorp about the “grossly inadequate” level of BHP’s approach. The fertiliser company’s chief executive, Bill Doyle, points out his group’s market value was nearly 60 per cent higher at $240 per share during the agricultural boom of 2008.Now comes the hunt for a “white knight” to counterbid against BHP. Although there are several names in the frame, the London-listed mining group will not be feeling nervous yet.Brazil’s Vale, the world’s largest producer of iron ore, last night appeared to rule itself out of the running. Vale is under political pressure to invest on its home turf and has ploughed $10bn into a series of fertiliser assets in recent months.Sinochem, the?Chinese state-owned chemicals conglomerate, remains PotashCorp’s brightest hope of a gatecrasher. The group has serious financial firepower and services a country that uses a lot of potash. But the need to get Canadian regulatory approval, coupled with the complexity of putting together a bid of this size, could be deterrents.Hopu Investment Management, a Chinese private equity fund, is also said to be interested. But as a buyout player it will be very price-sensitive.One thing is for certain. With $45bn financing already lined up, BHP is prepared to dig in and fight. Monday 23 August 2010 8:27 pmcenter_img PotashCorp hunts for a white knight KCS-content Share ROGER AGNELLICHIEF EXECUTIVE, VALEHAVING led South America’s premier iron ore miner for nine years, Roger Agnelli is used to wielding power. But even he has become accustomed to appeasing Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Brazil’s feisty President, who is intent on squeezing more domestic investment from Vale.Two months ago, Vale unveiled an $8.2bn (£5.3bn) joint venture with Germany’s ThyssenKrupp outside Rio de Janeiro. Agnelli openly admitted the steel mill was built as a result of pressure from Lula da Silva. Vale plans to spend $90bn by 2014, 70 per cent of which will be within Brazil.The commitment makes a bid for PotashCorp unlikely.LIU DESHUPRESIDENT, SINOCHEMSINOCHEM’S president, Liu Deshu, has the right credentials to spearhead an ambitious programme of expansion.Deshu holds an EMBA from China Europe International Business School and boasts 20 years’ experience working for the Chinese government in the spheres of foreign trade, machinery and petrochemicals. He has been at the top of the Sinochem tree for 12 years.The government-owned company turned over a record RMB300 (£28.4bn) in 2008. On its website, Deshu says Sinochem “has entered a crucial stage which presents us with great opportunities as well as challenges”. whatsapplast_img read more

Shares in veterinary services provider CVS Group (LSE: CVSG) were rising again this morning following its latest update on trading. Had I bought this growth stock when last writing about it in September, I’d be sitting on a gain of 30%. As much as I’m focused on long-term returns, that’s hardly a bad result over just four months!Top growth stockIts total sales grew by 9.4% to a little under £246m over the six months to the end of December. Like-for-like sales also increased by 7.8%. The latter may be slightly lower than over the same period in 2019 but I need to take into account just how bad 2020 was for most businesses.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…According to CVS, this resilient performance was the result of growth in its main Practices division, coupled with higher demand at its online pharmacy and retail arm (Animed). As one might expect given the clamour for animal companions in 2020, the AIM-listed company saw an increase in new client registrations over the period.  Membership numbers of its Healthy Pet Club preventative medicine scheme also grew by 3.6% to hit 430,000. In other news, the company’s not-insignificant employment costs fell slightly, from 51% of total sales to 48.9%. The vet vacancy rate also declined.To round things off, CVS Group was active on the acquisition front, purchasing four practices over the six-month period. I think this should only help to further cement its status as one of the leading veterinary services providers around. It now has more than 480 surgeries in the UK, Netherlands and Republic of Ireland. What now?As far as trading is concerned, I suspect recent momentum will be sustained. All of CVS’s practices remain open, in line with guidance issued at the beginning of the third UK lockdown. Importantly, the company is now able to provide essential services relating to animal welfare rather than just emergency work.Perhaps the biggest reason for continuing to be bullish on this growth stock, however, is that I simply can’t see the trend for pet ownership reversing. I also feel we’re unlikely to curtail spending on our furry friends, regardless of how the UK economy is performing. All told, the long-term prospects seem too good to me to bank profits this early. Even so, I have to be aware of the risks involved.Volatility ahead? One thing that might lead the share price to lose steam is a good, old-fashioned bout of profit-taking. This wouldn’t feel unreasonable. After all, the value of CVS has more than doubled since the dark days of March. A forecast price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 27 suggests a lot of good news is already priced in. CVS certainly has form when it comes to violent, and protracted, share price swings. Between November 2017 and January 2019, the valuation of the company plunged as it struggled to recruit vets in light of the Brexit referendum outcome. While our departure from the EU might be one-off event, this doesn’t negate the fact that such falls are possible.So, I wouldn’t sell had I bought a few months back. But while I do still think the shares could reward those with long investing horizons, I wouldn’t buy this growth stock today. I’m cautious over how much further the price could go in 2021 alone. As always, being sufficiently diversified elsewhere is key, regardless of how encouraging the outlook may be. Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%.

Pork Board Report Sees Need for Pork Industry to Improve Relations…

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Pork Board Report Sees Need for Pork Industry to Improve Relations with… Pork Board Report Sees Need for Pork Industry to Improve Relations with U.S. Latino Community SHARE Facebook Twitter Mexico is the largest importer of U.S. pork, and a new report from the National Pork Board (NPB) shows there is an opportunity to capitalize on the U.S. Latino market.The report called Time to Tango: Latinos are Pork’s Future, is the largest Insight to Action research from the Pork Checkoff. According to Bill Even, CEO of the NPB, Latinos have $1.7 billion in buying power, spending $95 billion each year on consumer-packaged goods, like groceries.“Over the past 9 years, nearly 70 percent of the U.S. population growth has come from the Hispanic community,” said Even. “The good news for American pork producers is that they love pork. If you’re a corn or soybean farmer, your future is tied into this the same way if you’re a pork producer.”Jose de Jesus, director of multicultural marketing with the NPB, says pork consumption can decline as Latinos acculturate to the U.S. and the link between pork and culture weakens.“Retailers must provide the right assortment in their stores so they can cater to the needs and wants of the Latino community,” said de Jesus. “Simply offering what’s available today, not necessarily appealing as it could be for the Latino demographic.”The NPB is also encouraging the pork industry to engage with Latino consumers about pork’s nutritional value. Since authenticity is important to the Latino community, pork must reach out to the needs of the local community.More information can be found online at pork.org or calling 800.456.PORK.Source: NAFB News Service By Ashley Davenport – Oct 2, 2019 SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleISDA: Temporary, Emergency Storage Available to Licensed Grain FacilitiesNext articleCoBank: Volatility Continues to Roil Ag Markets Ashley Davenportlast_img read more

Independent paper’s photographer barred from covering royal wedding

first_imgNews News News Organisation News to go further Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists RSF_en Receive email alerts July 17, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Independent paper’s photographer barred from covering royal wedding   Reporters Without Borders called on the Moroccan government today to explain why a photographer from the weekly paper Journal hebdomadaire, Karim Sellmaoui, was barred from covering the festivities surrounding the wedding of King Mohammed VI on 12 July.”This was an arbitrary measure taken by one of your officials against a staff member of an independent newspaper,” said the organisation’s secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to communications minister Mohammed Achaâri.                     Sellmaoui was stopped from entering Mechouar Square, opposite the royal palace in Rabat, where the public celebration of the king’s marriage to Lalla Salma Bennani was being held. A ministry official told him, without explanation, to get out of the car that was taking him, the special correspondent of the French magazine Paris Match and the technical team of the Qatari TV station Al-Jazeera to the festivities.The publishers of Journal hebdomadaire, Média Trust, said on 15 July that Sellmaoui was duly accredited by the ministry and had “not behaved ostentatiously or provocatively or criticised working conditions” for the event. More than 300 local and foreign journalists and photographers covered the marriage.center_img April 15, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara June 8, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say April 28, 2021 Find out more Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa last_img read more
