Why I’d sell this extraordinary FTSE 100 stock today!

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. G A Chester | Friday, 5th June, 2020 | More on: SMT When I look at the current list of FTSE 100 stocks, one company in particular leaps out at me. It not only occupies a unique position in the Footsie today, but also in the index’s entire history.The stock has become hugely popular with investors. Furthermore, my Motley Fool colleagues who’ve written about it all seem to be somewhere between bullish and super-bullish on its prospects. Its name is Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT), and here’s why I’d sell it today!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 unique FTSE 100 stockScottish Mortgage is unique in that it’s the only generalist investment trust currently in the FTSE 100. Since the index launched in 1984, only a handful of such trusts have ever grown big enough to join the UK’s blue-chip elite. And all those predecessors failed to maintain their status.During their time in the index, none reached as big a market capitalisation as Scottish Mortgage has achieved. At a new share price high of 755p, made in Thursday trading, its market cap is just over £11bn. It ranks comfortably in the top half of the FTSE 100. No other investment trust has managed this in the Footsie’s 36-year history.Of course, it’s largely the valuations of Scottish Mortgage’s underlying holdings that support its own valuation. The trust invests predominantly in businesses underpinned by the technologies of the digital age. It seeks to identify those it reckons can grow exponentially. Its top six holdings are over 40% of its assets, and include familiar US names Amazon and Tesla, and Chinese giants Tencent and Alibaba.Don’t fight the FedOver the last decade, the Federal Reserve and other central banks have provided unprecedented stimulus for financial markets. As such, investors have embraced the mantras “don’t fight the Fed”,  “buy what’s going up”, and “valuation doesn’t matter”.With value-agnostic passive index funds also pumping money into the same popular names, investment has become heavily concentrated in a relatively small number of leading stocks. Largely of the type found in Scottish Mortgage’s portfolio.Let me make two observations. First, the now-FAANGs-dominated NASDAQ index traded at a price/sales (P/S) ratio of 1.02 in 2010, but the P/S has climbed to 4.35 over the last decade. Meanwhile, if the average P/S of Scottish Mortgage’s top six holdings, which I calculate as 9.2, is any guide, the trust owns some of the most richly-rated companies in what is — by historical standards — a richly-rated market.My second observation is that never before in history has a market dominated by a high concentration of popular stocks ended well.Scottish Mortgage: a FTSE 100 stock in danger?Now, don’t get me wrong. I think Scottish Mortgage owns many great businesses. However, I reckon that to buy into it at anywhere near its current price, you have to believe there’s a new valuation paradigm in which P/S ratios of maybe 5-10 for indexes like the NASDAQ are the future norm.Personally, I’m highly sceptical of new paradigms in the investing world. I think it’s infinitely more likely the momentum-driven markets of the past decade have produced a major disconnect between price and fundamental value. A big correction of this would pull the rug from under Scottish Mortgage’s elevated position in the FTSE 100. It’s for this reason I see it as a stock to sell.

One year to go until the 2019 Rugby World Cup

first_img Anticipation: Excitement is building with only year to go until the World Cup begins (Getty Images) One year to go until the 2019 Rugby World CupJapan kick off the first Rugby World Cup to be staged in Asia against Russia on Friday 20 September 2019, so with just a year to go until the tournament we bring you a rundown of the latest goings-on…Tickets in demandRWC 2019 organisers have talked about an unprecedented demand for tickets for next year’s tournament, with a large sign-up for travel packages as well as huge interest from local fans. There have already been 2.5m ticket applications for 1.8m seats, although demand for certain matches is higher than others.Naturally matches involving Japan have been hugely popular while England – with former Japan coach Eddie Jones at the helm – and New Zealand – the All Blacks brand is strong in Asia – are also proving to be a big draw.The global public ballot is now open, too, and runs until 12 November – head to for all the information you need to register for tickets.Leaving a legacyThe word ‘legacy’ is often bandied around when it comes to big sporting events, but World Rugby believes Japan 2019 will be “the most impactful Rugby World Cup to date”.World Rugby set a target of introducing one million youngsters in Asia to rugby before the tournament and have already reached 900,000 so are likely to exceed their goal.Tag rugby has also been added to the curriculum at 1,982 schools in host cities, with 200,000 schoolchildren getting a taste for the sport so far.“Japan 2019 is shaping up to be World Rugby’s most successful legacy programme to date and with one year still to go, is already setting a gold standard for engagement across the sporting spectrum,” said World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont.“Creating a sustainable legacy is a central pillar in our major event planning and delivering a tangible, long-term impact beyond the six-week event is critical to the event’s success. Inspiring interest in rugby across Asia was one of the core reasons for bringing the Rugby World Cup to Japan.”Legacy: Organisers are hoping to grow rugby in Japan after the World Cup (Getty Images)Live on TVWhile World Cup rights-holding broadcasters do not have to show every match live, World Rugby is aiming to ensure that people will be able to watch all the games with live streams.For example, if ITV – the UK rights holders – choose not to show Fiji v Uruguay on Wednesday 25 September, World Rugby is likely to put out a live stream online of that match in the UK. The November issue of Rugby World magazine, which goes on sale on Tuesday 2 October, comes with a FREE 52-page guide to the 2019 World Cup. It’s packed with details of the teams, the fixtures and the stadiums as well as a wealth of information on travelling in Japan – where to go, what to see, which foods to eat and so on – for those fans going to the tournament. Be sure to pick up a copy next month.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Rugby World Cup Venues In the lead-up to the last World Cup, Tim Nanai-Williams played for Samoa on the World Sevens Series so he could represent Samoa at England 2015 having previously been tied to New Zealand (he had played the abbreviated game for them).Related: What are rugby’s eligibility rules? Sevens inclusion in the Olympics has opened this loophole in rugby and allows players to switch allegiance if they play in an Olympic qualifying event.While anyone who wants to be able to represent a country who are a core team on the Sevens Series can play in those legs to become ‘uncaptured’ so to speak, other nations will play in regional qualifying tournaments between June and December 2019.The dates of these, which should be confirmed by 31 October, could prove significant because if they are before the World Cup it gives an opportunity for players to become eligible for a different country in time for kick off in Japan.Switch: Charles Piutau has said he wishes to play for Tonga, despite playing for the All Blacks (Getty Images)Take Charles Piutau. The former All Black has spoken about wanting to play for Tonga at the 2019 World Cup and if the Oceania Olympic qualifying tournament is next summer he will have an opportunity to become eligible for selection. If it is later in the year it will be too late for him to switch for RWC 2019.Related: Exclusive interview with Charles PiutauTattoos cover-upWith tattoos having negative connotations in Japan – they are associated with the Yakuza (organise crime syndicates) – players are being advised to cover up any ink they may have when in public swimming pools, by wearing a T-shirt for example.There is no official regulation on this and player will not be required to cover any tattoos for matches, but they are being made aware of the local culture and Alan Gilpin, the head of Rugby World Cup, says teams have responded well.“It’s about education both ways,” says Gilpin. “We will make (Japanese) people aware around the facilities that players will use that people with tattoos in a Rugby World Cup context are not part of the Yakuza.“When we raised it with the teams a year or so ago, we were probably expecting a frustrated reaction but there hasn’t been at all. We won’t force anyone to cover up but teams do want to be respectful of Japanese culture. It will all be self-policing.”Respect: Teams will show respect to Japanese culture by covering many tattoos in public places (Getty Images) Free RWC 2019 guide Expand What you need to know about the 12… Take a look at all the matches that… TAGS: Japan 2019 Rugby World Cup Warm-Ups Collapsecenter_img Rugby World Cup Groups Rugby World Cup Venues A rundown of the Rugby World Cup groups… Changes of allegiance Here’s the latest on next year’s World Cup in Japan – from tickets to tattoos Expand LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 2019 Rugby World Cup Warm-Ups Rugby World Cup Groupslast_img read more

Hepetema facing ban after sending off in incident packed contest

first_imgTuesday Mar 9, 2021 Hepetema facing ban after sending off in incident packed contest Leicester Tigers against London Irish was an incident-packed event this past Friday at Welford Road, with Wayne Barnes in the thick of the action, issuing two yellows and a red card, all for similar types of tackles. ADVERTISEMENTLondon Irish crossed within 40 seconds of kick-off before Barnes dished out the first card of the day just five minutes later when Matt Rogerson was yellow carded for a high tackle.Winger Kobus Van Wyk scored a lovely try for the Tigers but was on the receiving end of a high shot in the second half, when London Irish centre Terrence Hepetema went in too upright.WATCH: Referee overrules TMO to Red Card player who is off the field for HIA and stitchesWhile it looked innocuous in real time, replays showed that the Kiwi’s shoulder connected with Van Wyk’s face as he ducked into the swinging arm tackle.“That’s not an attempt to grasp at that point, is it. So we’ve got foul play, we’ve got direct to the head so it’s a high degree of danger, there’s no attempt to grasp. We can’t mitigate that so it’s a red card,” explained referee Barners, before sending him off.Hepetema will appear before an online independent disciplinary panel on Tuesday evening (9 March 2021), for contravening World Rugby Law 9.13.Later, there was another yellow card for foul play in the second half, for Joe Heyes for a similar offence to that of Rogerson.Irish ended the match with a late try, picking up two bonus points but going down 33-32 to the Tigers.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 13 WEEKS AGO Referee overrules TMO to Red Card player… 14 WEEKS AGO The time Brian O’Driscoll pushed aside physios… 14 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Toulouse flanker gets away with bizarre… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

However, . The court was hearing FRL’s plea to restarin Amazon Inc from seeking to stall the FRL deal with Reliance group by writing to various authorities including the Competition Commission of India, Securities Exchange Board of India, etc about an Emergency Arbitrator award which was passed by an arbitral tribunal in Singapore in Amazon’s favor.The court held that the Emergency Arbitrator was not quorum judice but has held the award to be valid. On the question of Amazon seeking conflation of agreements of FRL shareholder agreement and Amazon-Future Coupons Ltd shareholder agreements, the court has held that such conflation is contrary to FEMA. Justice Mukta Gupta pronounced the Judgment in the case relates to a deal between Reliance-Future Retail under which, Future Retail was to sell its retail, wholesale, logistics and warehousing units to Reliance Retail and Fashion Lifestyle Ltd – a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliance Retail Ventures Ltd.The operative portion of the order reads as follows :”The trinity of the principles for grant of interim injunction i.e. prima facie case, irreparable loss and balance of convenience are required to be tested in terms of principles as noted above. Since this Court has held that prima facie the representation of Amazon based on the plea that the resolution dated 29thAugust, 2020 of FRL is void and that on conflation of the FCPL SHA and FRL SHA,the ‘control’ that issought to be asserted by Amazon on FRL is not permitted under the FEMA FDI Rules, without the governmental approvals,this Court finds that FRL has made out a prima facie case in its favour for grant of interim injunction. However, the main tests in the present case are in respect of “balance of convenience” and “irreparable loss”. Even if a prima facie case is made out by FRL,the balance of convenience lies both in favour of FRL and Amazon. If the case of FRL is that the representation by Amazon to the statutory authorities /regulators is based on illegal premise, Amazon has also based its representation on the alleged breach of FCPL SHA and FRL SHA, as also the directions in the EA order. Hence it cannot be said that the balance of convenience lies in favour of FRL and not in favour of Amazon. It would be a matter of trial after parties have led their evidence or if decided by any other competent forum to determine whether the representation of Amazon that the transaction between FRL and Reliance being in breach of the FCPL SHA and FRL SHA would outweigh the plea of FRL in the present suit. Further in case Amazon is not permitted to represent its case before the statutory authorities/Regulators, it will suffer an irreparable loss as Amazon also claims to have created preemptive rights in its favour in case the Indian law permitted in future. Further there may not be irreparable loss to FRL for the reason even if Amazon makes a representation based on incorrect facts thereby using unlawful means, it will be for the statutory authorities/Regulators to apply their mind to the facts and legal issues therein and come to the right conclusion. There is yet another aspect as to why no interim injunction can be granted in the present application for the reason both FRL and Amazon have already made their representations and counter representations to the statutory authorities/regulators and now it is for the Statutory Authorities/Regulators to take a decision thereon. Therefore, this Court finds that no case for grant of interim injunction is made out in favour of the FRL and against Amazon”On Amazon’s challenge to the deal before an Emergency Arbitrator appointed under the Singapore International Arbitral Tribunal Rules, an injunction was awarded on the deal by the Emergency Arbitrator earlier.Future Retail claimed before the Delhi High Court that Amazon had written to regulatory authorities including the Competition Commission of India, SEBI, etc mentioning that this order by the Emergency Arbitrator is ‘binding’ and was thereby trying to hinder approvals to the Future-Reliance deal.Future Retail also submitted that it did not accept the order by the Emergency Arbitrator as binding at all in the first place and therefore there was no question of challenging it. FRL further submitted that Amazon was “content” with the arrangement with Future Coupons Pvt Ltd as it had a call option in the agreement, which Future Retail claimed would allow Amazon into the multi-brand retail sector if the Government of India at some point allowed FDI in the sector.FRL’s main case was that Amazon was not a party to its agreement with its own shareholders, and Amazon was not its shareholder – it was merely a shareholder of FCPL, and therefore, it could not deny FRL’s right to enter into an agreement with Reliance.FRL was represented in the matter by Sr. Adv. Harish Salve.FCPL, on the other hand, was represented by Sr. Adv. Mukul Rohatgi, who pleaded that the arbitration was illegal as Indian arbitration law was to apply to the case and any injunctive relief could be obtained under Section 17 of the Arbitration Act only. He agreed with FRL that the award was not binding or valid in the first place.He prayed that the court would ignore Emergency Award while deciding on the question whether Amazon had the right to tinker with the FCPL-FRL amalgamation at all, and submitted that it would deal with Amazon, on the question of Amazon not exercising its call option when the company was sinking, later in an appropriate arbitration.He had concluded stating, “As of today, Amazon has no right to invest in FRL and if they can’t invest they have no right to stop Reliance from investing in us.”Sr. Adv. Abhishek Singhvi appearing for Reliance Retail and Reliance Retail & Fashion Lifestyle Ltd submitted that the award of the Emergency Arbitrator was a foreign concept for India, and found no place in Indian law. Further, that Emergency Arbitrator was consciously not included under the Arbitration Act despite the 246th Law Commission Report’s recommendation, and therefore this award passed by an Emergency Arbitrator could not be binding at all.Amazon, represented by Sr. Adv. Gopal Subramanium, argued that most, if not all the arguments presented by FRL, FCPL and Reliance had already been dealt with by the Emergency Arbitrator. He also submitted that Amazon had not in the least contradicted or intended to violate any FDI policy of India’s as, FCPL being an Indian entity, money coming into FRL from FCPL would not be considered as FDI at all.He had further pointed out that since Amazon had 49% stake in FCPL, which has 9.82% shares in FRL, Amazon’s stake in FRL becomes half effectively and would not cross the 10% limit imposed by India’s FDI policy in multi-brand retail sector.He also argued that all FCPL and FRL’s Shareholder Agreements under the common umbrella of the Biyanis had already been brought to the notice of the CCI. Against the Law Commission recommendation argument he responded that, Justice Nariman had already noted in a judgment by the Supreme Court that “recommendations by a Law Commission Report need not detain the court from interpreting the words as they are susceptible to being interpreted.”Click Here to download Delhi High Court Order in Future Retails Vs AmazonNext Storylast_img read more

Valeri’s goal gives Portland a 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake

first_imgAugust 31, 2019 /Sports News – Local Valeri’s goal gives Portland a 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Diego Valeri scored in the 16th minute and the Portland Timbers held on to snap a two-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.The Timbers improved to 12-11-4 as they continue to jockey for a spot in the postseason. They are in the midst of a 10-game homestand at Providence Park, a result of a 12-game road trip to start the season while the stadium was renovated.Real Salt Lake (13-11-4) hasn’t won in Portland since 2017.The Timbers lost 2-1 at home last weekend to Cascadia Cup rival Seattle. Portland hadn’t lost consecutive games at home since last season.RSL won four of its last five games and was coming off a 2-0 victory over Colorado last weekend. Salt Lake has moved up to second in the Western Conference standings despite the Aug. 11 dismissal of coach Mike Petke.Petke’s contract was terminated after he made derogatory comments toward officials following RSL’s loss to Tigres UANL in a Leagues Cup match. Assistant Freddy Juarez is leading the team through the rest of the season.The Timbers were limited because of injuries and were without Larrys Mabiala (hamstring) and Julio Cascante (thigh), Modou Jadama (foot), Cristhian Paredes (upper Leg) and Zarek Valentin (upper leg). Because of all the absences, Portland did not list one true defender among its available substitutes.Veteran goalkeeper Nick Rimando dove but couldn’t reach Valeri’s blast from the top of the box. After his goal, Valeri blew a kiss to fans in the stands who waved the flag of his native Argentina. It was Valeri’s eighth goal of the season. He also has 15 assists.There was a scary moment in the 75th minute when Jeremy Ebobisse collided with Rimando, who had to be attended to by trainers but stayed in the game. Just minutes earlier, Rimando had bumped away a shot from Brian Fernandez, Portland’s top scorer.Portland’s Renzo Zambrano was shown a red card in stoppage time after a heated exchange with the referee, but Portland goalkeeper Steve Clark dove to stop Albert Rusnack’s dangerous free kick from the top of the box.The Timbers Army supporters group waved flags with the Iron Front symbol in the 33rd minute, in protest of a new MLS policy that bans political signs and banners at matches. It was the second straight protest of the policy: The Timbers Army remained silent through the first 33 minutes against the Sounders.The Iron Front symbol, which is three arrows pointed down and to the left, was used by a paramilitary organization that resisted the Nazi party in Germany in the 1930s. It has recently been associated with antifa, a loosely organized group of militant antifascists. Tags: MLS/Portland Timbers/Real Salt Lake Associated Presslast_img read more
