The OFT said it was looking into suspected cartel activity, which was at an early stage.As part of the probe, the OFT has visited the UK offices of Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz as part of a broad-ranging investigation into the pricing of trucks. It has also requested information from Sweden’s Scania and Germany’s MAN as part of the probe.The probes are being carried out under both the Enterprise Act 2002 and the Competition Act 1998.

Toby Aston | Thursday, 30th April, 2020 | More on: CINE Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Cineworld Group (LSE: CINE) has had a tough couple of months as the coronavirus has forced the closure of all 787 of its cinemas. Its share price fell by 90% in March, to a low of 18p.The pandemic has made most entertainment and hospitality companies’ stocks pretty unattractive recently. But with countries like Spain announcing the gentle easing of lockdown measures, could we be about to see Cineworld claw back a big chunk of its value? Despite Netflix’s best efforts, we are all sick of being stuck at home. And one of the first outings (for couples and families alike) may be a night at “the pictures”.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…Cineworld’s survival planLike many income stocks, Cineworld has suspended its dividend during the pandemic crisis. This is obviously bad news for an investor. But it shows the company’s priorities are on survival and positioning itself for a brighter future. With its cinemas closed, there aren’t any earnings to pay dividends with! And if there’s no company left at the end of this, there’ll be no dividends anyway.But bosses at Cineworld have already revealed a survival plan including deferring their annual salaries and bonuses for a year. This – coupled with the hope of the restrictions being lifted – has led to an upswing in price to around 70p. Yet at this level, the price-to-earnings ratio is still only 6x. If the lockdown ends soon and Cineworld gets back to business, there could be a large profit to make from its recovery. Just one year ago, the stock was trading at 322p!Streaming warsSome film studios have released films directly to streaming sites since the cinemas’ doors have closed. This is worrying. But Cineworld and its rival, AMC Theatres, have united in retaliation – by banning the studios from showing any films in their theatres. Films released in 2021 will still need theatrical releases in order to be eligible for awards such as the Oscars. And this will surely bring the studios back to the negotiating table. Mooky Greidinger, Cineworld’s chief executive, says it is looking for cinemas to reopen at the end of June, ready for showings of the Christopher Nolan film Tenet – the first significant release since the coronavirus outbreak.There are legitimate concerns about the level of debt the company is running. The debt-to-EBITDA ratio is sitting at 3.5. And the rise of home-viewing may increasingly become a thorn in the side of the cinema chain in the long term. But this coronavirus pandemic has spooked markets like never before, frightening investors away from the affected industries. However, it has also created bargains and opportunities. Priced at just six times earnings, this company’s stock price may be one such bargain.Covid-19 has weighed heavily on Cineworld, but I believe – just as the cinema industry flourished after the 1918 flu pandemic – the show will go on. You better take your seat before it starts. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. AIM-listed Novacyt (LSE:NCYT), a clinical diagnostics specialist, has had an exciting couple of months. The Novacyt share price is up an incredible 2,650% year-to-date!Its shares surged in April when the World Health Organisation (WHO) fast-tracked Novacyt’s rapid Covid-19 test and recorded the test as eligible for emergency use. Large-scale testing is thought to be key to enabling countries to emerge from lockdown and return to work. This is because it can help track the spread of coronavirus throughout the general population.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…The London-listed biotechnology company has already signed a government contract to provide 288,000 tests per week to the NHS. This is a six-month contract with the option for an extension. In addition, it is supplying 20 hospitals with its test through orders from Public Health England. Primerdesign, a Novacyt subsidiary, is developing the test in Southampton.Novacyt news and financial updateNovacyt reported its annual results last week, with a net loss of €6.6m for 2019 caused by lower revenue and higher expenses. Revenue for 2019 was €13.1m, compared to €13.7m for 2018, so a disappointing decline in both.Novacyt is a highly speculative stock with no dividends, negative earnings per share, and a £248m market cap. Nonetheless, it does expect better results this year, as demand for its coronavirus tests increases. The Novacyt share price fell 11% on the release of its annual results, but it is climbing again today and was up over 26% at one point. This proves what a volatile stock this is and not for the faint of heart. The future for Novacyt stockWith these contracts in place and recognition from the WHO, it seems Novacyt has cemented itself as a mainstream player. Global demand for Covid-19 testing is continuing and Novacyt also has other products underway, including mobile Covid-19 testing. Its present commitment to growth and expansion is unlike anything it has previously undertaken. I think it will have more than enough to keep it busy this year at least. I do not see its share price having another surge of the same magnitude, but price fluctuations are likely to continue.If Novacyt can live up to its expectations, then I think it will continue to do well. However, it is still a micro-cap stock on AIM, which means it comes with risk. Pharmaceuticals are a competitive sector to operate in. When trials fail or a product does not meet predictions, the share price suffers. If you are looking to increase your chances of making a million, then I think that ship has sailed for Novacyt.I hope Novacyt will continue to thrive and survive long after the coronavirus crisis has passed, but I don’t think it is one of the best shares to buy right now. Newcomers to stock market investing should steer clear of speculative investments and look to the long term with more certain investment choices.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Best UK dividend stocks: here are the companies I’d focus on

See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Picking the best UK dividend stocks right now isn’t an easy task. This year, over 40 companies in the FTSE 100 index have suspended or cancelled their dividend payouts. There’s no guarantee that, post Covid-19, the big dividend payouts we’ve seen in recent years from Footsie companies will be resumed.If you’re looking for top UK dividend stocks to buy and hold for the long term, I’d suggest you focus your search on several key sectors. Some sectors are far more reliable than others when it comes to dividend payouts.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…Consumer Defensives: home to leading UK dividend stocksThe first sector I’d turn to for top dividend stocks is Consumer Defensives. This sector includes consumer goods, alcoholic beverage and tobacco companies, as well as supermarkets.Consumer goods companies, in particular, are often top dividend stocks. That’s because these tend to generate very consistent revenues and earnings throughout the economic cycle, which translates to consistent dividends.One dividend-paying consumer goods company I like a lot is Unilever. It owns a world-class portfolio of consumer brands, which includes Dove, Knorr, and Lipton. This FTSE 100 stock has a fantastic long-term dividend track record and currently sports a forward-looking yield of around 3.4%. That’s an attractive yield in the current environment. Another dividend-paying consumer goods stock I hold in high regard is Reckitt Benckiser. It owns a top portfolio of health and hygiene brands which includes Dettol, Lysol, and Nurofen. Like Unilever, it has a great dividend track record. Over the last 20 years, it’s lifted its dividend significantly. Currently, the stock sports a yield of about 2.3%.Both of these UK companies are highly reliable dividend payers. Both should continue paying them to their investors in the near term, irrespective of what happens with Covid-19, or to the economy. That makes them top dividend stocks, in my view.Healthcare: a source of reliable dividendsAnother sector that’s home to a number of top dividend stocks is Healthcare. Demand for this sector tends to remain pretty steady no matter what the economy is doing. This means consistent dividends for investors. If I was looking for the best UK dividend stocks to buy and hold for the long term today, I’d definitely look at stocks in the healthcare sector.One dividend stock I like is Smith & Nephew. It specialises in hip and knee implants and wound management solutions. It has a fantastic track record, having paid a dividend on its ordinary shares every single year since 1937.In the short term, we can’t rule out a dividend cut here because Covid-19 has disrupted the company’s markets significantly this year. However, looking beyond the near-term uncertainty, I expect Smith & Nephew to continue paying dividends on a regular basis. SN shares currently sport a trailing yield of about 1.9%.Top UK dividend shares Of course, there are plenty of other reliable dividend payers on the London Stock Exchange. Diageo, Sage, and Prudential are some other UK dividend stocks I believe have a lot of potential.If you’re looking for the best UK dividend stocks, you’ll find plenty of ideas right here at The Motley Fool… Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Edward Sheldon, CFA | Tuesday, 21st July, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

How I’d invest £5 per day in an ISA to make £500k

first_img Saving £500,000 might feel like it’s out of reach for many of us. But I reckon I should be able to hit this target by saving as little as £5 per day, or £150 per month. In this piece I want to explain how I’d invest my cash in the stock market to build a £500k retirement fund.How I plan to multiply my moneyAlthough I want to build a £500k fund, I don’t intend to save £500,000 of my hard-earned cash. In fact, I only expect to have to contribute around £72,000 of my own cash to hit my goals.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…The reason this is possible is because of the power of compounding. What this means is leaving any capital gains or dividend income untouched in my account and reinvesting it every year. Over time, following this approach makes a big difference to investment returns.For example, the average long-term return from the UK stock market is about 8% per year. If I invested £1,000 at this rate and made no withdrawals, my investment would be worth £10,062 after 30 years. That’s a profit of £9,062.However, if I withdrew the 8% return each year, my total profit would be just £2,400.Staying with the same 8% return, my calculations show that by investing £5 per day (£150 per month) for 40 years, I should be able to build a £500,000 retirement fund.How I’d invest the cashThere are lots of ways to invest in the stock market, but my priority is to make it simple, cheap, and reliable.In my view, the cheapest and simplest way to invest in UK shares is to buy a FTSE 100 index fund. These low-cost funds track the progress of the FTSE 100 index, which contains the 100 largest companies on the UK stock market.A FTSE 100 tracker fund won’t fill my life with excitement. But over long periods, history suggests that it should be reliable.However, I can’t ignore the fact that smaller companies have earned more attractive returns over the last decade. To gain some exposure to faster-growing businesses, I’d probably put half of my cash into a FTSE 250 index fund. The FTSE 250 contains companies that are well established but a little smaller than FTSE 100 firms. Typically, FTSE 250 companies have more room left to grow.Why I always use an ISAI don’t mind paying tax. But the UK ISA system means that investors can invest up to £20,000 a year completely tax free. This is a no-brainer, in my view.That’s why the first thing I did when I started investing was to open a Stocks and Shares ISA.The £20,000 per year limit on an ISA means you can save up to £1,666 per month, tax free. That’s plenty, for most people. Indeed, my sums show that based on the 8% annual return I mentioned above, you could hit £1m in 20 years if you maxed out your ISA each month.   Image source: Getty Images I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Belgian rugby club scores over 350 points in bizarre club fixture

first_imgTuesday Feb 10, 2015 Belgian rugby club scores over 350 points in bizarre club fixture If you’ve ever thought about how many tries could actually be scored in a if one team steps aside and allows the others to do their thing, wonder no more. Royal Kituro in Belgium’s top club rugby league has won a match 356-3. Yes, you read that correctly. As the BBC reported yesterday, the referee for this match failed to turn up on time, so a lot of the visiting players from Soignies left, including their coach, assuming the match would be cancelled. The referee did turn up, an hour later, so the match went ahead as the players that stayed there were obligated to play so that they could get 1 league point for a loss, rather than 0 for forfeiting.The circumstances, which included Sognies playing with just one substitute, didn’t stop Royal Kituro digging the knife in, as they proceeded to run in 56 tries and 38 conversions.With the tries practically uncontested and scored under the posts, we tend to wonder what happened with those other 18 conversions.Soignies did get one drop goal, but the match was considered a bit of a non-event by them, as they literally stepped aside for many of the tries, as can be seen below.The club president described the match as catastrophic, but despite the humiliating loss, they do still sit above Kituro on the league standings, in third place by just one point. Their points difference however now sits at minus 264. What is the biggest loss you’ve even been on the wrong side of, or inflicted?
