Covering the twists and turns that have driven the Amigo (LSE: AMGO) share price over the past few months has been fascinating. The company has become one of the most interesting corporate stories on the London market over the past 12 months. Earlier this year, it looked as if the lender would collapse under a mountain of compensation claims from former and current borrowers. While it was dealing with these issues, its former founder and CEO, James Benamor, tried to regain control.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…A vicious war of words followed. Shareholders eventually threw out Benamor’s proposals. After the defeat, he promised to step back, sell down his stake in the business and leave Amigo alone.He did for a few months, but the founder has now resumed his attack on the company. Amigo share price attackAt the end of last week, Benamor said he wanted to return to the troubled subprime lender as CEO to lead an international expansion. The current CEO, Glen Crawford, would be left to run the UK business, the founder noted.Crawford rejected this proposal almost immediately. Benamor has now called for a general meeting to oust most of the company’s current management. Amigo’s boardroom tussle has distracted its management for long enough. In my opinion, fighting over who’s going to run the business is a waste of time and effort. For a company in crisis, it could draw management’s attention away from more important matters. However, I can’t see why the current management is so against Benamor’s return. He founded the business and turned it into a billion-pound enterprise. He probably knows more about the company and its potential than anyone else.And before he sold his 61% stake in the business, he had more money on the line than anyone else. Set on making a returnFollowing these recent developments, it’s clear Benamor is set on regaining control. That suggests he could put forward a takeover offer for the Amigo share price if his latest attack fails. In the meantime, Amigo is making progress in dealing with historical issues. Its latest trading update showed an 81% decline in profit and a 32% decline in revenue, but its provision for complaints was broadly unchanged at £116.4m.At the end of the quarter, the company had £170.5m of equity and, at the end of July, it had more than £145m of unrestricted cash.I think these numbers show the firm has enough cash on hand to deal with its problems and restart lending. Indeed, the business is planning to restart lending towards the end of the year. As such, I’m cautiously optimistic on the Amigo share price. If the company can begin lending towards the end of the year, it could return to growth in 2021. At the same time, if its founder decides to make an offer for the business, it may be significantly higher than the current share price. In either scenario, investors may see a positive return. center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Announcements from pharmaceutical giants Pfizer, Moderna, and Astrazeneca provided positive updates in the fight against Covid-19.Global stock markets responded with strength. The FTSE 100 and Dow Jones indexes climbed by 12% in November. The strong performance came with a rapid sector rotation, from lockdown stocks to economic recovery stocks.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…Economic recovery stocks, particularly those in oils, aerospace, and the banking sector were among the worst-performing shares until the end of October. Worldwide lockdowns and economic weakness prevented many of them from rising. However, vaccine news in November provided a catalyst for these beaten-down UK shares to outperform.While technology stocks provided the leadership for much of the year, UK shares in re-opening sectors thrived in November.Will re-opening stocks continue to thrive?Was November’s bounce in re-opening stocks a one-off occurrence or will they continue to outperform over the coming months? I think there is much more room for re-opening stocks to outperform over the coming months. This week, the UK became the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer vaccine for public use. With vaccination rollout starting soon, many UK shares look well-placed to benefit from a return to post-lockdown life in my opinion.In addition, UK shares could receive a welcome boost when Brexit negotiations are completed with the European Union. The deadline is fast approaching, and any clarity could remove uncertainty.3 UK shares for an economic bounce-backI reckon many people that missed out on a holiday this year are looking forward to booking a trip in 2021. Jet2 is a popular package holiday provider that could benefit from pent-up demand for holidays. Jet2 was performing well before the pandemic. It had growing earnings, a strong balance sheet, and positive share price momentum — three metrics I like to see.I think Jet2’s fortunes will return once holiday bookings return to pre-pandemic levels, and I would consider buying more shares in my Stocks and Shares ISA.Banking sector shares tend to be one of the first to bounce back in an economic recovery that immediately follows a crisis. This could be due to the cyclical nature of the banking industry. Investors experienced this in the global financial crisis in 2009. UK banks experienced a 60% increase in stock prices in just one month following the 2009 stock market trough.I would consider Barclays as my top pick in the UK banking sector. It looks cheap versus peers and offers a good opportunity to invest before an economic recovery takes hold. It was encouraging to see that it delivered a resilient performance in its most recent update.The UK high street is experiencing significant change and UK retail in 2021 could look different from previous years. This week both Arcadia Group and Debenhams collapsed, potentially leaving a large hole in the UK high street. Retailers that can survive the crisis could thrive over the coming years as competition is reduced.One such well-known retailer is Marks and Spencer. The M&S share price has fallen from over 570p in 2015 to below 100p in 2020. I reckon it’s finally reached the bottom and it represents great value and excellent upside.

He has captained the Barbarians and Stade Francais, leading them to France’s Top 14 title.His achievements are all the more remarkable because he has made his name in a struggling national side. Expand Rugby’s Greatest: Sergio ParisseFew current players are as universally admired and lauded as Sergio Parisse. Rarely is a bad word written or spoken about Italy’s talismanic captain in the sporting media as his astonishing handling skills, powerful athleticism and undying determination light up the Azzurri’s performances year after year.His parents are Italian but he was born in Argentina while his father, also Sergio, worked there. Sergio senior had played for L’Aquila and Sergio junior started out with La Plata, before transplanting his Italian roots to Treviso in his late teens. He was still three months short of his 19th birthday when Italy coach John Kirwan handed him his first Test cap in June 2002.Three years later the all-round talent of this 6ft 5in back-rower prompted Stade Francais to sign him and he has blossomed for club and country in the decade since. “It seems as though he raises his game every time he plays for Italy,” said ex-England lock Tom Palmer. “He delivers every time.”By the age of 24, Parisse had 50 caps and the Italian captaincy to his name, having taken over the helm from Marco Bortolami. He is now Italy’s most-capped player and the second most-capped forward in world rugby.

Protests demand ‘Cancel tour to apartheid Israel!’

first_imgParis protest of Philadelphia Orchestra apartheid Israeli tour, May 26.Philadelphia — Palestine solidarity activists have held weekly demonstrations since April 6 outside the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts here. They called on the Philadelphia Orchestra to cancel its planned visit to Israel. Despite clear and growing opposition, including from orchestra patrons, the group departed on May 21 for Europe, telling the Philadelphia Inquirer that it was “resolute” in its decision to go forward with the visit to Israel.Yet, on the first concert date of the tour, it became clear that the Philly Don’t Orchestrate Apartheid campaign had gone on an international tour of its own.In Brussels on May 24, demonstrators disrupted the orchestra’s performance with chants of “Free, Free Palestine!” and unfurled a banner in the front row demanding cancellation of the tour. Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin left the stage, followed by the rest of the orchestra. The concert was delayed for 25 minutes as demonstrators were removed from the hall.Two days later, over two dozen demonstrators gathered outside the Paris Philharmonic and urged patrons not to cross the international Boycott Divestment Sanctions picket line. Several patrons expressed disgust at the Philadelphia Orchestra’s decision to tour Israel and said they would not have purchased tickets if they had known. In an act of solidarity with Palestinians, at least one ticket holder refused to go into the concert hall after learning about the tour.Back in Philadelphia, in an op-ed published May 24 in the Inquirer, Philip Gentry, a musicologist at the University of Delaware, called out how “out of touch” the orchestra has shown itself to be, referring to the trip as “a right-wing fantasy tour of Israel.”Gentry noted that the orchestra’s itinerary included “meetings with right-wing politicians, military leaders, and corporate tycoons. In partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, donors accompanying the tour could even make a special VIP visit to an Israeli Defense Force base, where one doubts their recent killing of 62 protesters in Gaza will come up. In response to the protests, the orchestra now claims it ‘intends to spend as much time as possible interacting with Arab communities to deepen our understanding of life in the region, and how we can continue to engage in conflict resolution through music.’ The orchestra will pardon us if this is a little bit hard to imagine.” (Philly.com, May 24)Berlin-based viol player and musicologist Laurence Dreyfus also spoke out against the tour on May 27. He is a signer to a petition, circulated in March, calling for the orchestra to honor the cultural boycott of Israel. His father, George Dreyfus, was a violinist with the Philadelphia Orchestra for nearly 50 years. Dreyfus said his solidarity lies “entirely with the protesters outside the halls.”Dreyfus, who is Jewish, asked: “Is the orchestra happy to have taken such a partisan side in this case, despite their disavowals to the contrary? I suspect Matias Tarnopolsky [the orchestra’s incoming CEO, who starts in August] will have some damage to undo when he arrives on the Delaware.” (Philly.com, May 27)The Philadelphia Orchestra told the Inquirer that it is now bracing for the fact that these demonstrations will follow it across Europe. No matter how “resolute” the orchestra management claims to be, its stubbornness does not compare to the growing international solidarity with the Palestinian people, especially as Israel steps up its brutal occupation of their homeland.The orchestra can’t claim it was not forewarned. In a recorded message that reverberated through the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall during the last Philadelphia concert on May 19, Palestinian author and activist Susan Abulhawa said: “If you think your collaboration with that murderous gangster state will blow over, then you sorely underestimate our pain; you underestimate our love for each other and our anger and resolve.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Newlands Bakery rolls out collection and delivery

first_imgGlasgow-based Newlands Bakery has launched home delivery and collection services.Newlands Home Bakery initially closed all its shops to comply with the government’s social distancing guidelines but customer queries about the re-opening of the business caused bosses to re-think the move. With management working in the main bakery at Thornliebank, no public access to the site and a large space available, it was possible to continue making breads, cakes and pastry products every day, it added.“We decided to offer a small selection of our most popular products for local home delivery,” said Alisdair Irvine, director at Newlands Bakery.“The service has provided such a success that we have extended our offer to customers who live outside our delivery service reach and so we are now offering a collection service available at our Thornliebank shop, with only one person allowed in the shop at any time.”The most popular item has been its sourdough bread, followed closely by flour. Newlands has also been supplying a sourdough starter pack for customers to bake at home.“We wanted to go further than just offering freshly baked quality products to our customers. We have been donating lots of cakes and pastries to Kilbryde Hospice to say thank you to the NHS for working so hard during this difficult time,” added Irvine.Newlands Home Bakery comprises five premises in Thornliebank, Clarkston, Cathcart, Newton Mearns and Shawlands.last_img read more

Audioslave Reunites At Anti-Inaugural Ball After Over A Decade [Watch]

first_imgChris Cornell, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commerford have reunited as Audioslave for the first time in over a decade at the Anti-Inaugural Ball at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles last night. The Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine supergroup performed three tracks off their debut 2002 self-titled LP, including “Like a Stone”, “Cochise”, and “Show Me How to Live.”The band hadn’t performed together since November of 2005, and officially broke up in early 2007 after releasing their third LP Revelations. It’s not likely that the band will continue this reunion in any shape or form, rather, it seemed to have been a one-time thing for the anti-Trump concert.Watch the entire performance below, courtesy of YouTube user Ted Weitzman:In a previous statement the band explained, “The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create ‘No Trump Zones’ across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”The event also featured performances from Prophets of Rage, along with special sets from Jackson Browne, Jack Black, Vic Mensa, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir.last_img read more
