China secures 100-aircraft order for its first commercial jetliner

first_imgTuesday 16 November 2010 8:44 pm China secures 100-aircraft order for its first commercial jetliner whatsapp China yesterday announced a 100-plane order for its first commercial jetliner, a first step in its ambitions to challenge Airbus and Boeing for a slice of a global market worth $1.7 trillion.State-owned COMAC, or Commercial Aircraft Corp of China, unveiled the orders at the country’s largest air show yesterday, ending a dearth of orders in the two years since it launched designs for the 150-seat C919.As air travel expands with a billion Chinese predicted to be flying for business and leisure early next decade, China wants to reduce its reliance on foreign planes and foster a domestic industry worthy of a country capable of putting a man in space.COMAC said the orders came from four Chinese airlines, which was no surprise given government encouragement for the project, but also the leasing arm of General Electric, which will supply the C919 engines together with France’s Safran.It is the first time buyers have committed to the aircraft, which COMAC expects to start building next year, followed by a maiden flight in 2014 and first delivery in 2016.Officials did not give a value for the deal or break down the orders by airline. A similar deal for Airbus or Boeing jets would be worth about $7bn.

KKR is believed to have been in advanced talks to buy Del Monte for several weeks. News of the potential take over earlier this week prompted ratings agency Standard & Poor’s to put Del Monte Foods on watch for a possible downgrade, suggesting any takeover could add meaningful debt that would weaken Del Monte’s credit protection measures below current levels. KKR had offered $18.50 a share for Del Monte, which would value the company at about $3.58bn (£2.3bn).Centerview recently bought pizza maker Richelieu Foods from Brynwood Partners. Vestar has invested in consumer-focused companies including Birds Eye Foods and Sun Products.KKR, Centerview, Vestar and Del Monte declined to comment.Del Monte has cut its sales outlook twice this year, citing higher rebates paid to retailers to spur consumer spending.The company currently trades at 12 times projected earnings, which is below the sector average of roughly 16.4 times projected earnings.Del Monte’s stock has leapt 62 per cent this year, with sharp gains over the past week driven by the takeover speculation. The shares closed up 5.5 per cent at $17.99 yesterday. center_img Equity funds join bid for Del Monte whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Thursday 25 November 2010 8:16 pm Show Comments ▼last_img read more

10 FTSE 250 stocks I’d buy for 2021

first_img Image source: Getty Images Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves does not own any share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Kainos and Softcat. 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. Enter Your Email Address As the UK gears up for the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines in the near future, the outlook for the economy is improving. As such, I’m looking to buy a basket for FTSE 250 growth stocks for 2021. I reckon these shares could yield substantial returns in the years ahead as the economy recovers from the 2020 setback. FTSE 250 growth stocks I think companies that have performed well during the crisis could be some of the best investments to own coming out of it. There are quite a few businesses have reported strong revenue performances over the past few months. These include Games Workshop, Watches of Switzerland and AJ Bell. 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…All these groups have a strong competitive advantage and target key markets. Games Workshop, for example, has a relatively small customer base, but they’re willing to spend large sums with the business. The same goes for the UK’s biggest Rolex retailer, Watches of Switzerland. This has helped these firms keep their heads above water during the pandemic. AJ Bell’s advantage is its low-cost offering, which has helped attract investors to the platform. As the UK economy returns to growth, I think this FTSE 250 stockbroker may continue to attract new investor cash. Other firms that have registered strong growth in the pandemic are Computacenter, Kainos and Softcat. Over the past few months, companies have been forced to invest in technology to keep their businesses operating. This has been a boon for specialist organisations. As the world becomes more reliant on technology, I think this trend will continue. With that in mind, I reckon building a portfolio of tech stocks could be a sensible idea. These companies are already highly profitable and may become more so as the world becomes more tech-enabled. Rebuilding Governments around the world are already planning massive spending plans to help the world recover from the Covid-19 slump. These spending plans are already pushing the prices of essential commodities like copper, iron ore, gold and silver higher. Therefore, I’m looking at buying operators that could benefit from this theme. Hochschild Mining and Kaz Minerals may benefit directly from rising commodity prices. Meanwhile, companies like Balfour Beatty and Morgan Sindall could benefit from increased construction spending. As the construction and mining industries are so notoriously difficult to navigate, I plan to own a basket of these companies rather than pick individual stocks in their sectors. This should help me benefit from the overall trend while minimising risk if one group starts to struggle. The bottom line I think that by acquiring a basket of FTSE 250 stocks, like those listed above, investors should be able to ride the UK’s economic recovery in 2021. These companies all have bright prospects and have shown they can withstand the Covid-19 storm over the past few months. As such, I’m optimistic about their futures.  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.

Lions 2017: Warren Gatland’s men silence the doubters to set up Auckland decider

first_img TAGS: Highlight We go again: Owen Farrell addresses the squad after the final whistle With 67-minutes up, the Lions formed a ruck on the 22, and Conor Murray whipped the ball to Sexton, who popped the ball to Jamie George. The former fly-half scurried 15 metres deep into the All Blacks half. As the ball was recycled, in a nano-second, Conor Murray, surveyed his options at the resulting ruck and darted between the despairing Ardie Savea and TJ Perenara to stretch out an arm to level the scores. If they listened hard enough, you’d swear the cheers could be heard back in Cork.Even after Farrell’s match-winner, the Lions still had work to do and their thunderclap tackling, notably on Kieran Read, took the breath away, with the tireless Sean O’Brien and Sam Warburton to the fore. With desperation setting in and Reiko Ioane spilling the greasy ball, the Lions were able to rumble back into the black half of the pitch and they whittled down the clock adroitly before Murray hoofed the ball to kickstart giddy, unabated celebrations in the stands.Nearly there: Conor Murray spots the gap to touch down and level the scoresThe reaction from the perpetrators involved were far more muted. The Lions gathered in a huddle, where the message was clear. The job was only half-done. The win meant nothing until the Series was won.While Warren Gatland could quip that he was ‘one happy clown’, the realization that they’d given the Lions an adrenalin shot of gargantuan proportions was setting in, while the post-mortem was underway from the subdued hosts.A soul-sapping few days in Queenstown has been averted and the Lions will use their R&R for one last push for immortality to sit alongside the feted 1971 Lions.Bloody hell, sport, eh! In the torrential rain of Wellington the Lions put their supporters through every conceivable emotion, yet emerged victorious to level the Seriescenter_img Saturday 1st July, 2017. A date that will forever be etched in the Lion’ illustrious 129-year history. It was an evening where records tumbled as fast as the odds for a Lions victory after Sonny Bill Williams thuggishly drove his right shoulder into the face of a defenceless Anthony Watson.Lest we forget, SBW, a role model all over the world, became the first All Black to be sent off in New Zealand and only the third player in its history – the last being the great Colin Meads in 1967. It was also the first time the All Blacks have failed to score a try in a Test at home since 1998 against South Africa, and don’t forget it was the first victory in the Land of the Long White Cloud for the Lions since 1993. It was that sort of night.Of course, like any good blockbuster, the Lions made a meal of executing a victory, with New Zealand down to 14-men after 25-minutes, gifting the All Blacks a nine-point cushion with 20 minutes on the ticker.Aberration: Sonny Bill Williams paid for his reckless shoulder-charge on Anthony WatsonDespite their heroics, the Lions contrived to flap, fumble and panic their way to the big ‘W’ but they did it through the nerveless Owen Farrell, who guided the ball between the uprights on 75 minutes, after an excitable Kyle Sinckler was upended taking the ball in the air by Charlie Faumuina.For all the guff about the Lions being an endangered species, it was their loyal, well-fuelled fans who made a marked difference. From the first minute, the famed sea of red, made the Westpac feel like a home game, lustrously welcoming their gladiators onto the slippy turf, in a biblical downpour. They made themselves hoarse, belting out ‘Lions, Lions’ and it reached a crescendo when Maro Itoje scragged Aaron Cruden for a turnover with Alun Wyn Jones, screaming at him in adulation and whacking him on the rump of his backside. The stadium erupted with ‘oh, Maro Itoje’, to the ture of the Seven Nation army, and the Westpac PA helped add to the acoustics with a heavy layer of bass to ramp up the already feverish atmosphere.Over-excited: Sam Warburton looks on as Mako Vunipola is sent to the sin-binAfter giving away seven consecutive penalties in the second-half as the visitors penalty count sky-rocketed north –  hitting the red-zone of double-figures – the supporters still kept the faith, with fingernails gnawed elsewhere.The tone was set from the off, however.When Warren Gatland demanded an upping in passion and intensity in the week, his pack offered a bone-crunching riposte. In the second minute, Mako Vunipola and Alun Wyn Jones thundered into an onrushing Owen Franks with such ferocity that pre-match earthquake warnings seemed like they’d need to be heeded.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREThen the rest of the burly band got in on the act. Tadhg Furlong, the farmer’s son from Campile, tore into the men in black, either with the ball or without, showing his piano’s shifter’s strength and pianist’s hands.Family ties: Maro Itoje celebrates the win with his dadAs for Maro Itoje, his was a flawed-yet-brilliant performance. He bristled after the game, frustrated with his penalty count and a rare spilt ball early on, but by God, he played with an intensity that even the All Blacks failed to deal with, carrying into heavy traffic like an upright dump truck and throwing himself at black shirts with demonic zeal. When he ran over to his parents at the end of the game, it underlined the boyish-nature of a 22-year-old seeking reassurance from his ‘pops’ and how he deserved it.The game ebbed and flowed, with Mako Vunipola, who had clearly lost control of his emotions seeing yellow for cleaning out Beauden Barrett twice in a matter of minutes, but as the game entered the last quarter, Owen Farrell and Johnny Sexton started to find more space and when a ruck formed on the far side of the pitch, they spotted an opportunity. The ball was fired through hands; from Murray to Sexton, Farrell to Williams, and with a whip of the ball off his right hand, the departing Scarlet found his Welsh team-mate, Taulupe Faletau, 15 metres out. The Bath No 8 has Israel Dagg to beat, and with a step and a feint, he drove his feet into the turf and powered towards a scrambling Dagg, dropping his shoulder, bracing for impact. His technique was textbook, as he straightened his torso and legs to dive over the line to wild celebrations. 21-14. Game on.Finishing touch: Taulupe Faletau goes over in the corner for a fine tryThe stadium was in raptures, as both sets of players looked for a defining play.

Presiding Bishop will preach sermon during livestreamed National Cathedral Sunday…

first_imgPresiding Bishop will preach sermon during livestreamed National Cathedral Sunday service As churches cancel in-person worship, services move online Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Smithfield, NC Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will give the sermon during the Washington National Cathedral’s livestreamed Sunday service. Photo: The Episcopal Church[Episcopal News Service] As parishes across The Episcopal Church suspend in-person worship in a precautionary effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sunday, March 15 is shaping up to be a historic day, with many – if not most – churches switching to online services. With only a few days’ notice, churches are preparing for a radical, unprecedented shift in the way they gather as a community, and there’s no certainty about how long it will last – whether congregations will be back in church in time for Easter or virtual services will become “the new normal” for a while.Episcopal News Service’s complete coronavirus coverage can be found here.The Episcopal Church’s online resource page for coronavirus response is here.Churches large and small are rapidly figuring out what a virtual service looks like and how it can be broadcast over the internet, many for the first time. In Washington, D.C., Washington National Cathedral has suspended in-person worship for the next two Sundays, the longest preplanned closure in its history (not counting a closure of several weeks after the 2011 earthquake that seriously damaged it). The 11 a.m. (Eastern time) Eucharist on March 15 will be livestreamed here and feature a sermon from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, though he won’t be at the cathedral either; the sermon will be recorded from his home in North Carolina.While writing the sermon, titled “Is there any message in this mess?” Curry pondered the Gospel reading for March 15: a passage from John 4 in which a Samaritan woman asks Jesus whether it is holier to worship God on a mountain or in a temple, and he replies, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”“Those ancient words speak to us who have to worship online or at a distance,” Curry said in a statement sent to Episcopal News Service. “On the mountain top or in the church building isn’t important. In spirit and in truth is what matters. So on livestreams or in a church building, all that matters is to worship God in spirit and truth.”Other major churches, like Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California, and Trinity Church Wall Street in New York are only holding online services for the immediate future, although some – including the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York and St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas – were still planning to hold in-person services as well, as of the afternoon of March 13.But most parishes don’t have the resources of those large churches, and many have no experience with livestreaming, so the past few days have been a crash course in virtual worship for leaders from across the church. The Episcopal Church has included a list of digital worship resources on its COVID-19 page, including livestreaming tutorials, apps and websites for daily prayer and fellowship, and online versions of the Book of Common Prayer and the Daily Office.Some dioceses have put together their own guides for online worship, like “Offering Online Worship: A Simple Guide” from the Diocese of Chicago, a webinar from the Diocese of Oregon, and a video tutorial from the Diocese of San Diego on how to livestream a service using just a smartphone, a Facebook account and a tripod.One issue that has come up is hymn licensing. Typically, hymns that are under copyright require a license to be used in a livestreamed service. Some licensing companies are relaxing their restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. One License, which covers dozens of hymn publishers, is offering churches a one-month streaming license for free. Alternately, churches can use any public domain hymn without licensing; a list with scores and lyrics is available here.Beyond broadcasting Sunday services, church leaders are using the internet to keep clergy and congregants connected in other ways. Virginia Theological Seminary is offering “Digital Ministry Open Office Hours” through its eFormation Learning Community, focusing on “how best to serve our communities of faith in times of crisis and concern.” Forward Movement has offered a list of resources for prayer and worship at home, including a Daily Office podcast and its ChurchNext video courses.“Especially in this time, we must turn to Jesus Christ our Lord as we face fear and uncertainty,” said the Rev. Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement, in releasing its list of resources. “Though we may not be able to gather in person with others in our churches, we can pray knowing that we are never alone, as Jesus has promised to be with us, even to the end of age.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

With the eVscope’s fast-growing success, Unistellar now has 4,000 of its high-end consumer digital telescopes distributed across Europe, the United States and Japan, in only one year. Beyond disrupting a trending marketplace, the brand had a banner year thanks to high customer satisfaction, with a net promoter score of 54.5 for the eVscope. An active citizen science partnership with the SETI Institute also contributed to a strong network effect for the community, which saw exponential monthly growth in its size and scientific contributions during the year. “Unistellar gives consumers the opportunity to connect with astronomy on a thrilling and personal level, from enjoyable stargazing evenings to contributing to science advancement through their observations. Now we are pushing this further by giving them the opportunity to own a valuable piece of this emerging industry,” said Laurent Marfisi, Chief Executive Officer at Unistellar.
