Meanwhile, there was a £7bn – 0.5 per cent – drop in the Bank of England’s preferred measure of the money supply (M4 excluding intermediate other financial corporations) – saw its biggest monthly drop in a year.“This was the result of money-holders switching into foreign currency deposits, possibly in anticipation of sterling weakness,” said Henderson’s Simon Ward.“Ignoring the foreign currency distortion, M4-ex rose by 2.2 per cent annualised in the six months to February, up from 1.6 per cent in the prior six months,” Ward argued.“While growth remains sluggish, it is probably more than sufficient to finance trend economic expansion and two per cent inflation given a rise in the velocity of circulation,” he said.

Is this FTSE 100 stock a sensible long-term investment for me?

first_img Kirsteen Mackay | Friday, 26th February, 2021 | More on: BRBY Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay FTSE 100 fashion house Burberry (LSE:BRBY) has been around for 165 years. It has a loyal following and appeals to new customers too. The pandemic has thrown it a curveball though, and it’s been dealing with store closures, travel restrictions, reduced revenues, job cuts and a multitude of unforeseen issues. So how does its investment case look now that the vaccine rollout is underway?Beating the FTSE 100 to recoveryWhen the pandemic hit, it decimated its revenues because two key areas of sales are airports and Asia. Both of these were immediately closed. However, China is showing strong signs of recovery and international travel is tentatively resuming. The Burberry share price has been rising in response too.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…Like most public companies, Burberry’s also focusing on sustainability, addressing climate change and embracing the shift to a digital future. But it earned brownie points in the eyes of the ESG funds when it offered a factory to make PPE for the NHS.All these incremental issues influence the Burberry share price. But as a long-term investor, I have to step back and look at the bigger picture. And I find what I see reassuring. If I owned shares in Burberry, I wouldn’t worry, because overall I think the company will still stand far into the future.Burberry has a market cap of £7.6bn, earnings per share are 29p, and its price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is a very high 63. It’s a FTSE 100 firm with quality, strength, and global reach all going for it. The Burberry share price is up 3% in a year, but it’s still down 18% from its pre-pandemic high. In comparison, the FTSE 100 index remains down 5% in a year. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

A minor victory in ChinaHigh fashion has long been at the behest of counterfeiters, and when it comes to fakes, no place reigns supreme like China. This makes it difficult for luxury brands to fight for fair market share. However, this week Burberry won a small victory when granted a preliminary injunction against the owner of the Chinese copycat chain Baneberry. What makes this significant is that the trial is still underway, so it sends the message that China wants to improve its reputation for quality.This can only be good news for Burberry as it looks to expand its reach in Asia. Demand for luxury fashion from Chinese consumers is growing. And Asian economies appear to be emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic to a rapid recovery. I think this presents a good investment case for Burberry.Burberry appears to be in touch with younger generations. And it’s on the ball with social media marketing. In its Q3 results, mainland China saw strong double-digit growth, while overall comparable store sales fell 9%.Analyst consensus seems to be that Burberry is a stock worth holding. If I owned shares in this FTSE 100 star, I’d be hanging in there.However, I think it’s expensive, its high P/E reflects a high level of optimism, when caution should be paramount. The fashion sector is notoriously fickle, and what’s working now may not in a few months’ time. A rapid rise in inflation would be bad for Burberry, as consumers will have less cash for luxuries. Plus, a slow return to global tourism could shatter sales growth forecasts.With so many unknowns, I’m not tempted to buy shares in Burberry today.

Wales equal wins record after beating Italy

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Alan Wyn Jones made his 50th appearance for Wales in the Six Nations. Try time: Josh Adams crosses the line against Italy (Getty Images) Their 26-15 victory over Italy in the Six Nations was far from sparkling, but Wales have now won 11 Test matches in a row His first cap in the tournament came in a loss to Ireland, in Cardiff, in 2007. He has a win percentage of 63% in this competition. He will be relishing the game against England in two weeks.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Italy drew on the try count after getting two score of their own, battering over with Braam Steyn in the first half and darting in to score with Edoardo Padovani out wide in the second. After the match Warren Gatland said that the Italians deserved huge credit for their performance, particularly in defence.There was one other little landmark. Wales equal wins record after beating ItalyWhen you’re hot, you’re hot. Wales’ 26-15 victory over Italy in the second round the 2019 Six Nations means that they have equalled their record for consecutive Test wins, 11.It was hardly sparkling stuff and for the second week in a row the Welsh failed to net a try bonus. However the got the win, and finished Saturday night top of the Six Nations table.The last time Wales won 11 Tests in a row was between 1907 and 1910. But Wales can go one better if they defeat England at the Principality Stadium in round three. The Welsh haven’t beaten England since the 2015 World Cup, but they do have momentum and will look forward to returning home, after two wins on the road.Wales scored one sensational try through centre Owen Watkin – who won the race to score off of Gareth Anscombe’s sensational kick – and another through Worcester wing Josh Adams. They also had potential tries chalked off by the TMO after captain Jonathan Davies slid in but knocked on and then flanker Thomas Young dotted down after receiving a forward pass.But they only had 12 points to show for their first-half efforts, coming from four Dan Biggar penalties.last_img read more

Coffee With a Cop Takes on New Meaning Tomorrow

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your comment! McDonald’s and the Apopka Police Department  have held two previous Coffee With a Cop events this year.  One in January and the second in April. McKinley considered both events successes.“I am extremely pleased with the community’s turnout for the Coffee with a Cop events,” he said. “These are great opportunities for the public to meet Apopka Police officers in a social and casual environment. I have received a lot of positive feedback from not only the public, but members of the department.”Coffee With a Cop  is a nationwide initiative by police departments to get to know the public in a more neutral and less adversarial setting. In Apopka, that neutral non-adversarial setting is McDonald’s. McKinley sees these events as a chance to listen to the community.“We plan on continuing this event every couple of months and look forward to the community’s participation. We understand policing is not possible without input and involvement from the citizens. I want to take advantage of every opportunity for members of the public to build a positive relationship with members of the department. We can’t do this job without them. We live in this community, too; the citizens’ concerns are our concerns.I invite all members of the community to stop by to meet with us on Saturday to have a cup of coffee, talk about those issues affecting our community, and get to know us by first name.” TAGSApopka Police DepartmentChief Michael McKinleyCoffee With a Cop Previous articleBreaking News: 11 Dallas Police Officers Shot Last NightNext articleMega Millions Jackpot Reaches $540 Million Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Posey and Heck for reintroducing this important legislation that would help ensure that the NCUA, credit unions, Congress and others fully understand and comprehend the impacts this rule making will have on the industry,” said NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler. “Requiring further study of this rule will only benefit the credit union industry and ensure a fair and appropriate risk-based capital system is put into place.”The Risk Based Capital Study Act—officially designated H.R. 3736, would require the study to examine the following criteria: the agencies authority to issue a two-tier proposal, the ways in which RBC compares to banking requirements, the impact on credit unions capital cushions, and an explanation on the ways risks are weighted by the agency.If passed, the bill would delay the RBC rule 120 until after the report is reviewed by Congress, and allow greater capital resources for credit unions.You can read the full press release by the NAFCU here.
