first_img IMPERIAL TOBACCORBS rates the cigarette manufacturer a “buy” following the announcement of price increases. It notes that this should more than offset the impact of increased excise rates in Spain. Imperial’s profit pool should remain largely unchanged from FY10 and continued cost savings should allow the group to deliver marginal profit growth. The broker notes that its investment case remains intact and reiterates its £23.80 target price.AVOCET MININGEvolution Securities retains its rating of the gold mining company as “neutral”, with exploration in West Africa key. It notes that Avocet is worth less with the likely sale of southeast Asian assets and sets a target price of 225p/200p. But, the broker says that the potential success from the drilling programme next year could replace the company’s lost ounces.BAE SYSTEMSExecution Noble reiterates its “buy” rating, with shares falling by 19 per cent since October. BAE’s P/E discount versus the US peers has widened to 160 basis points. The broker says that recent beneficial moves in BAE’s pension discount rate, and the possibility of near term closing of the Platform Solutions disposal makes the discount excessive.

This was about half the £777m realised in the same nine months in 2009, but left out £350m expected from two further exits, of engine maker MWM in October and Hyva in December that have not yet completed. Evolution Securities analyst Bill Barnard said the nature of deal flow meant income from realisations and investments varied considerably from period to period. “Ultimately this is a game of quality, not quantity,” he said. “3i had a burst of action before Christmas; it is seeing growth coming back after private equity fell off a cliff in 2008 and 2009, but the market remains slow.”3i spent £183m in the three months to December on deals including buying jewellery supplier Amor Group from Pamplona Capital; Stork Materials Technology from Candover, calibration firm Trescal from Astorg Partners and medical distributor OneMed from Nordic firm CapMan.3i shares closed 1.15 per cent higher at 317.7p.

It is part of the learning process and to be expected. But you can reduce your investing mistakes by taking the time to research and plan where to invest money to get good returns.At the Motley Fool we believe a long-term approach to stock market investing is the best way to generate steady wealth for a financially stable future. This follows the principles of value investing, as advocated by billionaire investor Warren Buffett. It is a tried and tested method that begins with a plan.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…Make an investment planIf you actively plan where to invest money to get good returns, you are more likely to make it happen. Creating a checklist to help you assess potential stock market buys, will make the process easier and your understanding greater. Buffett’s colleague Charlie Munger once said, “You must value the business in order to value the stock”. This is appropriate for the planning stage because in evaluating the business, you will identify whether there is value in it.A simple checklist for beginners to investing could be something like this:Has the company earned positive returns using little debt?Is there potential for future growth?Is the company’s product in demand?Are there dividends?Is the price-to-earnings ratio below 15?Does management care about the company and its shareholders?Where to invest money to get good returnsThe alluring promise of life-changing sums of money leads many new investors to penny stock trading. At first glance it can look like a quick and easy way of investing for beginners, but it comes with massive risk. I think newcomers should avoid the volatility of the AIM index and stick to the reliability of the FTSE 350. This is where to invest money to get good returns in established companies trading at reasonable prices.Avoid frequent tradingConsistent gains are what investors strive for, but often consistent investing is more important than share prices on a continuous rise. If the investment itself is building a bigger pot gradually, through dividend reinvestment, then you can ignore intermittent price fluctuations.The most resilient companies will see their share prices ascend over the long term, but volatility will still occur during the short term. This is why it is important to set it and forget it rather than trying to cash in on sporadic price moves.Watch out for broker feesBroker fees can quickly eat into your investment. If you have a small amount to invest, such as £100 with a transaction fee of £10, that is immediately 10% of your investment. This means your stock purchase needs to rise 10% to break even and probably more if you then incur a selling fee. Depositing small, but regular cash sums is a common way to get started in investing for beginners. Some brokers offer a regular investment option, such as £1.50 a month, so if you can afford to invest £100 a month in a stock, then the £1.50 fee is only 1.5% of your investment. To discover where to invest money to get good returns, compare brokerage fees and regular investment options.Avoid investing mistakes and become a successful investor by planning your strategy and sticking to it. The stock market is a powerful entity offering a pathway to wealth for anyone from any background. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Government pressure on public broadcasting

first_img March 16, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders is very disturbed by the government’s illegal and arbitrary dismissal of four members of the state-owned broadcaster RTV Slovenija’s supervisory board. Appointed for four-year terms by the previous social-democratic government in January 2010, they were fired by the current conservative government last week.“Their dismissal is contrary to the letter and spirit of the law and constitutes unacceptable political interference in RTV’s operations,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If the government could dismiss the supervisory board’s members, they would be independent only in theory. Respect for public broadcasting’s institutions and independence are essential conditions for the rule of law. If the government does not reverse this decision, it will be accused of dealing a very dangerous blow to media freedom in Slovenia.”The four supervisory board members who were dismissed by Prime Minister Janez Janša’s conservative government on 26 July – Nataša Koprivšek, Marjan Sedmak, Aljoša Štampar and Matjaž Medved – were appointed by Borut Pahor’s social-democratic government on 21 January 2010 for four-year terms ending in 2014. Candidates have been invited to apply for the newly-vacant positions.The government appoints four of the supervisory board’s 11 members but there is no legal provision for their dismissal before their four-year terms are over. Their terms can only end prematurely if they resign or are unable to continue fulfilling their duties as a result of death, illness, imprisonment and so on.The government’s decision is line with a recommendation by the parliamentary committee for education, science, culture, sport and youth, which is dominated by the ruling coalition. The committee “rejected” the RTV supervisory board’s annual report in April and called for the replacement of the four members named by the previous government. In so doing, the committee exceeded its powers. According to law, it is supposed to take note of the report but not to issue recommendations or vote on it.In defence of their actions, the parliamentary committee and government accused the supervisory board of lacking authority and transparency. The board’s chair, Lenart Šetinc, described the accusations as “fabricated and unverified” and said the committee and government had acted in an “illegitimate and illegal” manner out of “purely political motives.”“It does not bode well for the rule of law when the government violates legislation,” Šetinc said. “One of the pillars of RTV’s independence is the article of the law that says that its staff and the members of its supervisory bodies cannot be arbitrarily dismissed by the government.”Concern about growing government influence over the media has been heightened by the announced creation of a new TV station in the next few months by Telekom Slovenije, a telecommunications company that is 72 per cent state-owned. TS is one of the country’s biggest companies and has a near monopoly of telecommunications and Internet access. Many journalists fear that the new TV station, to be called TSMedia, will be subservient to the government, which is at the same trying to exercise more and more control over RTV.According to Slovenian law, a telecommunications company cannot own a TV station. TS nonetheless expects to get the green light from the Postal and Electronic Communications Agency (APEK), and the future TV station has already bought the broadcasting rights for the next three seasons of the UEFA Champions League.
