Monetary conditions are loose with velocity recovering, while CPI inflation could rise to 4 per cent near-term. QE2 will fuel commodities speculation rather than help the real economy.”GEORGE BUCKLEY | DEUTSCHE BANK“While the economic news has become less positive, the slowing growth momentum does not seem sufficient yet to justify further easing in policy. The risks of additional QE have grown but for now its wait and see.”MICHAEL SAUNDERS | CITIGROUP“The MPC may produce an unusual three-way split, but the majority will vote to hold. With the rebound in nominal GDP and sticky inflation, Posen is unlikely to find much support for his view that the UK is like Japan.”VICKY REDWOOD | CAPITAL ECONOMICS“The recovery has slowed sharply, while higher inflation still isn’t having much upward effect on inflation expectations or pay growth. I think the time has come to launch QE but the MPC will probably hold fire.”TREVOR WILLIAMS | LLOYDS TSB“Signs of a weakening in the UK economy are becoming more widespread. I vote for rates to remain on hold in October and for a further £50bn of QE. The latter should start before the fiscal squeeze kicks in next year.”HOWARD ARCHER | IHS GLOBAL INSIGHT“No change on rates and I would hold fire on QE for the time being. But I am worried about the growth outlook and if the economy takes a further downward lurch then further stimulative action would be justified.”JAMIE DANNHAUSER | LOMBARD STREET RESEARCH“We have long argued that the MPC should err on the side of doing too much.

Debenhams: our market share is up

first_img whatsapp DEBENHAMS claimed it was winning market share from rivals as it posted a small rise in sales over the key Christmas trading period that was affected by December’s snow.Sales at stores open more than a year increased 0.3 per cent including VAT sales tax in the 19 weeks to 8 January.Chief executive Rob Templeman said yesterday he was pleased with the firm’s Christmas performance given the adverse weather that gripped the nation last month. But he refused to say whether he expected underlying sales to grow in the year ending August 2011. “What we’ve got to see is how consumer sentiment unfolds over the next six to eight weeks, then we’ll be in a better position to talk about how we think the future lies,” he said. Many retailers fear that spending cuts announced by the government, as well as tax rises, a slowing housing market and hikes in transport and fuel costs will hit consumer demand in the months ahead.But Templeman said he was hopeful Debenhams would this year benefit from its decision to switch 530,000 square foot of space from concessions – which sell other brands – to own-brand merchandise. Debenhams, Britain’s Number Two department store after John Lewis, trades from 167 stores in Britain, Ireland and Denmark.

BGC blasts SMF’s “arbitrary and random” deposit cap proposal

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Casino & games UK industry body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has hit out against the suggestion of what it called an “arbitrary and random” monthly deposit cap, suggested in a report from think tank the Social Market Foundation.The report, published today, recommended operators be subject to a £100 (€111/$131) “soft cap” on deposits per month, after which due diligence checks would hae to be made before more funds can be deposited.In addition, it called for slot games in Great Britain to have mandatory stake limits of between £1 and £5 and for the white label system to be abolished.The report also recommended replacing the Gambling Commission to be replaced with two distinct regulatory bodies bodies: the Gambling Licensing Authority to handle licensing and compliance issues and the Gambling Ombudsman to handle customer protection.The BGC said it is important that any review of the Gambling Act is evidence-led, and that it did not believe the proposed “soft cap” fit this criteria. In addition, it said no other sector faced comparable limits.“It is vital that the Government’s review is evidence-led and avoids the dangers of unintended consequences,” a BGC spokesperson said. “Some 30 million people enjoy an occasional bet, whether that’s on the Lottery, bingo or sports and gaming, and the overwhelming majority of them do so perfectly safely. We already carry out robust and improved affordability checks, and regularly intervene on customers to ensure they gamble within their means.“We disagree with the suggestion of an arbitrary and random low cap on spending and can think of no other area of the economy where the government determines how much an individual can spend.The BGC added that harsh measures may cause players to move to unregulated sites, where player protection is minimal.“We must avoid measures that see safe regulated betting being driven to unregulated, offshore, illegal black market operators online who don’t have the same checks, interventions and high standards that apply to regulated BGC members.“Measures must be proportionate, evidence-led and fully thought through so as not to jeopardise the 100,000 jobs the industry supports or the over £3 billion in tax revenues it generates for the Exchequer.”However, the BGC also welcomed other aspects of the report, such as the claim that problem gambling rates have remained stable and a “kitemark” to be displayed by operators that have not breached the Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice (LCCP).“We welcome the fact that, in contrast to the siren voices of prohibitionists who claim problem gambling is high and is increasing, this report rightly states that there is no evidence of a rise in problem gambling and that levels have been stable around 0.7% for nearly two decades,” the spokesperson added.  “Although we do support many of the measures contained in the report, the authors share the BGC’s determination to raise standards and we welcome the important acknowledgment that our members have taken action to drive higher standards, especially during the Covid-19 crisis.“We fully endorse the concept of a British gambling kite mark as a sign of operators’ commitment to fairness, quality and integrity and the BGC would welcome the opportunity to lead on the development of this concept.”Meanwhile, a Gambling Commission spokesperson said the regulator would study the report, adding that it welcomed all additions to the debate around the future of gambling.“We are aware of this report and will study its recommendations,” the spokesperson said. “We welcome all contributions to the current debate around gambling and are focussed on responding next month to the recent reports from the House of Lords Select Committee and the Public Accounts Committee.”Ladbrokes Coral operator GVC Holdings said the report showed that a government review of the Gambling Act was needed soon.“The report underlines the need for the government to bring forward its review of the Gambling Act and implement a robust regulatory regime for the betting industry, that is fit for the digital age,” GVC said.Although the report suggested stake limits for online slots and a £100 monthly “soft cap” on deposits before enhanced due diligence checks, GVC said it was still pleased to see the report recognise that a degree of player freedom is needed.“The report’s acknowledgement that individuals must have personal freedom in how they spend their money is welcome, a view that is supported by a recent poll of GVC customers which found over 70% of them believe they should decide how much money they should spend on their leisure time, rather than the Government,” GVC said.“We also welcome the report’s focus on ensuring all operators in the UK hold a full gaming licence and unregulated operators are no longer tolerated,” the operator added, referring to a proposed ban on white label agreements.The operator also pointed to its previous record on gambling-related harm, but said it was important to avoid unduly punishing those gamble safely in this fight.“GVC has already been working hard to improve the tools customers can use to manage their betting, and step in when we see people at risk of harms,” it said.  “We recognise more can and should be done, however it is vital that any new regulation must strike the balance between protecting the small minority of customers who are at risk, without pushing the 99% of customers who gamble safely and within their means, into the arms of illegal operators that offer no safeguards or protections.“As a major contributor to UK plc both as a significant employer and as one of the largest twenty taxpayers, GVC is committed to working with the government to develop a gambling industry that works for everyone.” UK industry body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has hit out against the suggestion of what it called an “arbitrary and random” monthly deposit cap, suggested in a report from think tank the Social Market Foundation.

Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Energy cell and battery producer Ilika (LSE: IKA) has been on a tear lately. By mid-December it had already quadrupled from its 2020 lows. In the month between mid-December and now, the Ilika share price has doubled again.Here’s what I would do now.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…1. Understand the businessIlika is not a household name. So the first thing I do in a situation like this is try to understand the business. A good way to do this is by reading as much about it as possible. Its annual reports and news releases are available on its website for free. Reading them helps give some overview of the company and its likely prospects.Ilika specialises in solid state battery technology. Originally spun out of university research, the company focuses on two product lines called Goliath and Stereax. While it has been mostly focussed on getting the technology right to date, it is now moving into larger scale production. Last year it started to move to production at scale on the Stereax line of products.As well as money it gets from commercial activities such as sales and licensing, the company also receives some grant funds. These have helped its revenue. But increasingly, Ilika’s revenue comes from commercial sources. That suggests that the end marketplace has growing confidence in Ilika’s products.2. Understand the wider trendsI think one of the reasons the Ilika share price has jumped is because of a wider theme in investing. There has been a scramble to get into alternative energy forms such as hydrogen.While a lot of money has chased such energy companies, the number of companies with working technology is limited. I think one reason Ilika has seen such a share price rise may be that investors looking for energy storage companies are piling into it.Such a thematic approach to investing needs to be handled carefully, in my view. It makes sense to identify broad themes which could help a given sector do well in future. But not all companies will have positive returns, especially when a lot of thematic money pours into a limited number of shares in fairly small companies. That can drive up prices to levels I wouldn’t regard as good value, even if the underlying business is strong.3. Try to value the sharesEven after a steep rise such as that of the Ilika share price, can be followed by continued upward momentum sometimes. That could be because the shares are fundamentally undervalued, and the market is correcting that. But it could also be the continuation of a form of group euphoria, foreshadowing a price fall when pragmatism reasserts itself.While the first is an example of investment, I regard the second as mere speculation. So in looking at a company like Ilika, I try to assess its fundamental value. It does have proven technology, a head start on competitors, and a history of revenues.But it is lossmaking and I don’t understand the technology well enough to understand the company’s potential competitive advantage fully. The Ilika share price of close to one hundred time sales looks high to me.I’ll pass on Ilika in favour of selecting a company whose products I can understand fully, at a lower price multiple. The Ilika share price has doubled since December. Here’s what I’d do Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The previous design did not meet the Client’s requirement, and we were invited to step in. The Client, a young couple, needed their house to do two things; be dynamic, energetic and hybrid to suit their lifestyles, whilst remaining comfortable, familiar and traditional for the husband’s elderly parents living with them. These two separate and disparate ideas needed to merge ensuring a spatial integrity as a home.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaSave this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaUsing the existing structure we wanted to make this house self- sufficient in terms of light and ventilation, since the neighborhood was already starting to see the old houses giving way to high-rise apartments reducing privacy, light and ventilation. Relying heavily on top light, we used the technique of levels to bring the light into all the spaces of the house and also to unify and divide the house. The easier access to the ground floor made it traditional space for the parents. Their Bedroom comes in towards the front, opening onto a narrow Front Garden.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThe Living Room also opens up towards this Front Garden, before combining with the Dining Room to occupy the northern length. The Dining Room engages with the Side Garden through large corner glass windows. The Kitchen in the south west opens towards the Dining Room. It is serviced by a Utility towards the center of the house. The Utility area, the Powder Room, the Help’s Room and the Parents’ Bathroom are bundled into a low height block above which sits the Mezzanine and the Elevated Garden. Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThis Elevated Garden becomes the heart of the house, commanding views from both the ground floor and the first floor as well as sourcing light and ventilation for the house. The first floor revolves in a ‘C’ shape around the Elevated Garden, and houses a bedroom on either side with a large hybrid space in the middle. This Hybrid Space lines up with the Elevated Garden with sloping roof expanding its volume and the light filtering into it. It serves as a den, a library, an AV room and a second living room for the couple. The Master Bedroom turns into a suite towards the front, with a cut-out separating the bath and sleeping areas. A tree (from below) grows through this cut-out, simulating an internal courtyard. The roof houses the Study as it overlooks into the Elevated Garden from above.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaThe staircases of the house run through a central vertical shaft connecting all the spaces together. This is the Steel Space frame; a language derived from the internal geometry; widths and the heights of the house. Just like the garden and the light, the Steel Space frame with its silhouetted foreground becomes the language through which each space perceives the other. Almost like a lens with its own coloration. This same lens is taken to the outside edge of the Master Bedroom, courtyard and bathroom, to craft the views and the connect of the house to the outside. The silhouette inside becomes an object outside, and a silhouette outside becomes an object inside. These shifts through day and night makes Aadyam revel in its own character from deep subjectivity to stoic objectivity.Save this picture!© Niveditaa GuptaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Trap Installation / Cheng Tsung FENGSelected ProjectsOuthouse / MISA ARCHITECTSSelected Projects Share 2017 Houses Photographs “COPY” Aadyam House / Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects GRCASave this projectSaveAadyam House / Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects GRCAlast_img read more
