Hugo Boss earnings up after it saw strong sales in Asia

first_img GERMAN fashion group Hugo Boss yesterday raised its 2010 outlook after a faster-than-expected recovery in the luxury goods market, together with its strategy of opening more stores, helped it beat third-quarter forecasts.After a sharp downturn, the luxury market has started to recover in 2010, driven by tourist shoppers from emerging markets such as China. In its third quarter, Hugo Boss saw EBITDA jump 42 per cent to €150m (£132m).It now forecasts operating profits will be 20 per cent up on last year, against earlier estimates of between 10 per cent and 12 per cent.“Suits seem to fly off hangers,” the Frankfurt-based trader said.Its shares have gained 79 per cent this year as prospects for the luxury sector have improved.A spokeswoman said Hugo Boss was satisfied with all of its markets and was aiming to open up to 60 of its own shops in 2010, which would take the total to 425.Hugo Boss, majority-owned by private equity company Permira, said third-quarter results were driven by its growing retail business and a Chinese joint venture with franchise partner Rainbow, which it intends to use to boost its retail presence in the Asia/Pacific region.It said it would give more details in its nine-month results, to be published on 2 November. Last week, chief executive Claus-Dietrich Lahrs said that luxury markets might bounce back much faster than previously thought.

UK’s RGSB issues mixed report on 2016-19 RG strategy

first_img The Responsible Gambling Strategy Board (RGSB) has said that the 2016-19 National Responsible Gambling Strategy achieved a number of key milestones, but ultimately failed to make as much progress as hoped in tackling gambling-related harm in Great Britain.Since the strategy was published in April 2016, the RGSB said, progress had been made in having gambling recognised as a public health issue, while work was being done to better understand and measure gambling-related harms.The Board also highlighted a shift away from the notion that promoting responsible gambling was the main way of reducing such harms. More and more stakeholders were accepting that other factors such as product design and gambling environments, among others, played a key role.Furthermore, the RGBS added, the past year had seen some major developments, with Public Health England announcing plans to carry out a review of gambling-related harms. It also highlighted the fact that the National Health Service’s (NHS) 10-year plan committed to reducing gambling harms, and that the NHS and GambleAware were to establish a regional clinic in Leeds.“The overall verdict on the strategy must, however, be that, we have moved neither far enough nor fast enough,” the RGSB said. “We are still some way from a coherent national approach. We do not yet know enough about what works in harm prevention.“We have done too little to test new ideas and evaluate their impact,” it continued. “Treatment is not accessed by many of those who could benefit from it. Eventual outcomes for those that do are unclear. Recognition of gambling as a public health issue now needs to be followed up by effective action.”In particular, the RGSB said it had been particularly disappointed by progress towards developing a culture of evaluation. This had aimed to ensure all responsible gambling interventions were fully tested so that results could be published and shared across the industry.The Board said that over the three years, the industry had not moved closer to understanding what worked in terms of harm minimisation, with opportunities to evaluate interventions routinely missed. It said that the evaluations that were carried out did not focus enough on the impact on the end user, and that the Gambling Commission and Government did not properly evaluate the impact of regulatory action and legislative changes.It also noted that when it came to assessing the effects of product characteristics and environment on problem gambling, games developers were initially reluctant to acknowledge links between their games and the potential for harm.“This attitude is beginning to change,” the RGSB noted, however. “Some operators are now demonstrating a greater awareness of concerns about product design and have committed to take steps to understand the risks better.”The industry also failed to carry out a systematic review of the role of education in preventing gambling-related harm. The RGSB said it was “probably over-optimistic” about the time needed to develop a plan to improve the quality and capacity of treatment available to problem gamblers, another key priority action.Ultimately, the RGSB said that a lot had changed over the current three-year strategy, and that it had either been over-optimistic or had underestimated the need for detailed implementation plans in certain areas.“As a result, there have been some disappointments,” it said.“But there have also been some notable successes, especially the beginning of noticeable change in mindset about the need for action on gambling-related harms and the best ways of approaching it,” the RGSB added. “We believe therefore that a valuable opportunity has now opened up for the new strategy to make a significant step up in delivering the objective of reducing gambling harms.”It suggested that the future strategy, due to be launched later this month, would provide an opportunity to learn from the failings of the 2016-19 plan, and build on the successes of that period.This, it added, would be aided by the Gambling Commission taking direct responsibility for developing and implementing the new strategy, supported by the RGSB – under a new name and with a new chair.

In the current low interest rate environment, in which many savings accounts are paying less than 1%, everyone is looking for ways to boost their savings. NS&I Premium Bonds are one savings product that many people are turning to. Currently, these offer an annual prize fund interest rate of 1.4%, and all prizes are tax-free.Personally, I see very little appeal in Premium Bonds. Here, I’ll explain why I’d give them a miss, and look at where I’d park my long-term savings instead.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…Premium Bonds: not worth itFrom a wealth-building perspective, Premium Bonds have several major flaws, in my view. For starters, they pay no regular income. This means they’re not really suitable for anyone who is (a) looking for a regular return on their savings (i.e. retirees), or (b) looking to take advantage of the power of compounding (earning interest on interest).Secondly, the odds of winning big cash prizes are poor. Overall, the odds of winning a cash prize for each £1 bond number are 24,500 to one. Meanwhile, the odds of winning the jackpot are around 41bn to one. These odds are summed up well by the Money Advice Service: “Your chances of winning the top prize are very slim – most people will win smaller prizes or nothing at all.”Finally, even if you do average a return of 1.4% from Premium Bonds, that’s still a very poor return. That kind of return isn’t going to protect you from inflation. Ultimately, if you’re earning 1.4% on your money over the long run, you’re going to be going backwards financially.So, all in all, I see Premium Bonds as a lousy investment.Returns of 7-10% per yearIf you’re investing for the long term, I say forget about Premium Bonds, or any other cash-based savings products, and invest in the stock market instead. This is where I invest the bulk of my own long-term savings.Yes, stocks can be volatile in the short term. Earlier in the year, we saw just how volatile stocks can be when markets crashed due to Covid-19. However, in the long run, stocks tend to produce much higher returns than cash savings products, such as Premium Bonds.Indeed, over the long run, stocks tend to produce returns of around 7-10% per year. For example, the S&P 500 index, which is the most followed stock market index in the world, has returned about 10% per year, on average, since its inception in 1926. Earning that kind of return on your money can make a big difference to your wealth over time.It’s even possible to do better than this if you pick the right investments. For example, the very popular Fundsmith Equity fund, which I’ve invested in, has returned nearly 20% per year over the last five years. Of course, the stock market isn’t suitable for all investors. Stocks are a higher risk investment as your capital is at risk. However, if your goal is to build wealth over the long term, as mine is, stocks are a bit of a no brainer, in my opinion.last_img read more

Stock market recovery: why I’d still buy shares today

first_img Even though many stock prices have risen over recent months, a plan to buy shares could still be the best means of potentially making a million.A number of high-quality companies currently trade at low prices. This suggests they could have large scope for capital growth in the coming years.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…Furthermore, the lack of reward potential available among other mainstream assets could mean that a portfolio of shares outperforms its peers.The potential to buy shares at cheap pricesThe uncertain economic outlook has caused many stocks to trade at cheap prices. The history of the stock market shows that a plan to buy shares while they offer wide margins of safety can be hugely profitable. It allows an investor to take advantage of market cycles, in terms of buying stocks at low prices and selling them at high prices.Such a strategy has largely been popular because the stock market has a long track record of recovering from even its very worst declines. For example, indexes such as the FTSE 100 halved during the global financial crisis. However, within just a handful of years they recovered to post new record highs. Although this outcome cannot be guaranteed to take place for all shares after the 2020 stock market crash, a likely economic recovery could cause stock prices to surge in the coming years.Relative appeal of sharesWhile now may be the right time to buy shares because of their low prices, other assets seem to lack investment appeal. For example, income-producing assets such as cash and bonds now offer disappointing returns because of low interest rates. Furthermore, the outlook for interest rates means that this situation may persist over the medium term, as policymakers favour an economic recovery ahead of maintaining low levels of inflation.Similarly, assets such as gold and property could lack appeal at the present time. The precious metal trades close to a record high, which suggests there is limited scope for capital gains. House prices are also relatively high, which could signal a lack of capital growth potential in comparison to a portfolio of undervalued shares.Making a millionMaking a million through a strategy that seeks to buy shares at low prices could happen in the long run, although a substantial initial investment would be a big help. If an investor matches the high single-digit annual returns posted by the stock market in recent decades, a £100,000 investment today could be worth over a million within 30 years.However, with a likely stock market rally ahead and low valuations on offer, making a million from buying shares right now could be a faster process. Such a strategy may lead to market-beating returns that allow a portfolio to grow at a fast pace – especially when compared to the performance of other mainstream assets.

We note that at least four media workers have been murdered since the start of the year. “Ensuring justice for victims is a prerequisite for deterring further attacks and ending this bloody escalation. In this respect, the investigation into the massacre of 32 journalists in 2009 is particularly significant. However, it should not obscure the fact that the legal system has been slow to shed light on a series of other murders, including those of Dennis Cuesta, Christopher Guarin and Aldion Layao.”Jimena, a presenter on DYRI-RMN Radio, was shot dead by two men on a motorcycle near his home on Negros Island last August. Before his death, he received threats from a politician he had criticised.One of the two suspects, Noel Guimeroy, was arrested on 8 August in the village of Tinungan in the Isabela commune. The second, Joel Calungsod, is still sought by police. Both will answer to charges of murder before the municipal court in Silay, in the west of Negros Island. The Philippines is ranked 140th of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders and remains one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists.center_img Receive email alerts RSF_en News Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa PhilippinesAsia – Pacific News Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago Help by sharing this information February 16, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Systematic use of torture by security services

His captors broke his left hand, which he uses to draw, and burned his body with lit cigarettes. He was finally dumped at the side of a road near the airport with a bag over his head.
