Plant closure hits ProStrakan

first_img KCS-content “The potential Sancuso manufacturing issue could be a bump in the road but should be temporary.”The company posted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (ebitda) of £1.2m for the six months to the end of June, against a £4.3m loss a year earlier, on 23 per cent higher revenue of £45.4m.Aveva Drug Delivery Systems, the maker of Sancuso, which had sales of £4.6m in the period, halted manufacturing for 8-12 weeks following an inspection by America’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ProStrakan said.“It’s a fluid situation and we don’t quite know what the outcome will be,” Totten said. “We are working with the manufacturer and the FDA towards making sure there is either no or minimal disruption to product supply.”Sales of Abstral, a formulation of fentanyl, used to treat sudden bouts of severe pain in cancer patients, rose to £7.4m.

As the stock market crash continues, I’d buy these 2 bargain FTSE 100 shares in an ISA

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 1st April, 2020 | More on: BKG GSK Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s continued volatility means buying shares today could be a risky move. Investors may experience sharp paper losses over the coming months as the economic impact of coronavirus becomes increasingly clear.However, for long-term investors, now could prove to be a sound buying opportunity. A wide range of FTSE 100 shares currently trade on low valuations. In many cases, they have strong market positions and seem likely to recover from their present-day lows.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…With that in mind, here are two large-cap shares that could be worth buying today in an ISA.Berkeley GroupThe near-term prospects for housebuilders such as Berkeley Group (LSE: BKG) are extremely challenging. The UK housing market has essentially been shut down. It’s not possible to view properties. At the same time, many lenders have removed their mortgage products. This is likely to lead to a period of severe sales declines across the sector.However, Berkeley Group could be in a relatively strong position to survive the current economic downturn. Its recent trading update highlighted a strong balance sheet, having over £1bn in net cash. This may enable it to not only survive the current crisis, but to capitalise on it by buying distressed assets.Looking ahead, Berkeley Group may seek to reduce its generous capital return programme. Although this may lead to lower returns for investors in the short run, it could help to position the business for a recovery over the long run. Since it has a long and successful track record of overcoming various economic crises, the company appears to have investment appeal while it trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 7.3.GSKHealthcare companies such as GSK (LSE: GSK) may be in a better position than many FTSE 100 stocks to survive the economic impact of coronavirus. Its defensive characteristics could help to sustain its top-line growth. This may increase its appeal among investors in the short run.In the long term, GSK’s decision to enter into a consumer healthcare joint venture with Pfizer could improve its financial performance. It may lead to greater efficiencies across its operations, and enable it to focus on the most attractive growth areas.According to the company’s most recent results, its main aim is to invest in its pipeline through increasing innovation. Since it has strong cash flow and a solid balance sheet, it seems to be in a sound position to achieve this goal. And, with its shares having come under pressure in recent weeks, its P/E ratio of 12.9 indicates it’s trading below its intrinsic value. That’s also a lower rating than many of its industry peers.As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business while it offers improving long-term financial prospects and has a wide margin of safety.

Market crash: this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy bargain stocks

The recent stock market crash has caused significant losses for many investors. A wide range of stocks have not yet recovered from one of the most severe and fast-paced stock market declines in living memory.While further challenges could be ahead for investors, the recent market crash could present a superb buying opportunity. Although short-term risks remain, the recovery potential of the stock market suggests that purchasing a diverse selection of companies today could lead to strong capital returns in the long run.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 rare occurrenceAs mentioned, the recent market crash has been one of the fastest and most significant declines in recent decades. Although there have been other bear markets such as the global financial crisis, they have generally occurred relatively infrequently. In fact, bear markets are rare occurrences and often do not last for a prolonged period of time before a recovery comes into force.Therefore, during an investor’s lifetime there are unlikely to be a large number of opportunities to buy stocks when they trade at bargain levels. Certainly, there are always opportunities to buy attractive stocks in all market conditions. But the valuations that are currently on offer across many industries have not been seen since the financial crisis over a decade ago – if at all — and are unlikely to be present for many more years in future.Buying in a market crashAlthough the prospect of buying undervalued stocks during a market crash may not feel natural to many investors, it can be a highly profitable exercise. After all, the stock market has always recovered from its declines. This time around is unlikely to be any different over the long run.As such, it could be a good idea to adopt a long-term view of your holdings and to try to ignore market noise. Many investors have negative views of the stock market, while others are seeking to second-guess the movement of stock prices in the short run. By ignoring their views and instead buying high-quality businesses at low prices for the long run, you could capitalise on bargain valuations at present.This strategy may require a large amount of self-discipline, as well as an acceptance that paper losses could be ahead in the short run. But it has been a successful strategy for many investors in periods when a market crash has previously occurred.DiversificationAs well as buying stocks in a market crash, it is important to manage risk through diversification. It is currently extremely difficult to know which sectors will return to strong growth in the coming years, since the full impact of coronavirus on consumer behaviour is a known unknown.Therefore, reducing your exposure to specific companies and sectors could cut your portfolio risk. It may also enable you to generate higher returns in the coming years as the stock market gradually recovers.

Deon K. Johnson as its 11th diocesan bishop Nov. 23 at Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis. He was elected on the first ballot during an election that involved 164 voting delegates. He received 71 votes from lay delegates and 42 votes from clergy.A veteran Episcopal priest with deep experience in social justice issues and ministry to gay and lesbian communities, Johnson, who lives in Michigan with his husband and two children, has been rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brighton, MI, since 2006.Johnson was elected to lead a community of more than 10,000 worshipers in the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. Church delegates and clergy members chose their 11th bishop on during the 180th diocesan convention.“I am overwhelmed with joy, humility, and gratitude,” said Bishop-elect Johnson from his home in Michigan to the people of the Diocese of Missouri. “The Holy Spirit has brought us to this day, for such a time as this. I am looking forward to walking with you as we share the liberating love of Jesus. My husband and our family are looking forward to being with you in the new year.”Johnson will assume the post upon the retirement of the 10th bishop of Missouri, the Right Rev. George Wayne Smith, who has shepherded the diocese since 2002. Smith announced his retirement, effective with the ordination of the new bishop, in April 2018. Johnson was elected by a majority of both lay and ordained delegates to the annual diocesan convention, according to the rules of the convention.The Rev. Dawn-Victoria Mitchell, president of the standing committee, expressed her joy at the election results. “It’s a very, very exciting day for the diocese. We’ve only had 10 bishops in our 178-year history. And to have this done on the first ballot was really exceptional.”A veteran Episcopal priest with deep experience in social justice issues and ministry to gay and lesbian communities, Johnson is a native of Barbados who immigrated to the United States at age 14 and found his call to ministry nurtured by parishioners at a church near Case Western University in Cleveland, where he earned his undergraduate degree.Others on the ballot for the election were the Rev. Stacey Fussell, rector at Episcopal Church of the Ascension, Bradford, PA; and the Rev. George D. Smith, rector at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Glen Ellyn, IL.The historic election will be submitted to bishops and diocesan standing committees for their ratification. Once those consents are received, the service of ordination, by which Johnson becomes a bishop and assumes responsibility for the pastoral and administrative work of the diocese, will take place on Saturday, April 25, at St. Stanislaus Polish Catholic Church in St. Louis. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will be the chief consecrator at the service. A reception will follow at the Polish Heritage Center on St. Stanislaus’ grounds. Media are welcome.

Scotland avoid last place as they beat Italy at Murrayfield

first_imgSunday Mar 20, 2011 Scotland avoid last place as they beat Italy at Murrayfield Scotland escaped the dreaded Wooden Spoon and got their first 2011 Six Nations win, beating Italy 21-8. Two tries were enough to see out the win for the home side, ending a barren run that saw them try-less at Murrayfield since November 2009.Italy came to Scotland looking to build on their historic win over France last Saturday and things got off to an excellent start when the ever impressive full-back Andrea Masi scorched to the line for an early try.Scotland hit back with a penalty from the immaculate Chris Paterson, and things remained closely fought for the remainder of the first half.However, when Nick de Luca scored in the 47th minute, the momentum swung in the direction of the Scots. With Richie Gray dominating the line-outs and Sean Lamont terrorising the Italian defence, Scotland seemed to have found their rhythm; and when Nikki Walker touched down for his try, the win was sealed.It was a well-earned victory for a Scottish team who started their campaign with a lot of promise, yet struggled to turn potential into points. Nevertheless, a satisfied Andy Robinson said that the win was well-deserved, yet did not mask a disappointing 2011 campaign:“It was the result we were looking for – but it did not hide the fact that the championship has been a disappointment for us,” said the Scotland coach.“We had gone into the competition full of genuine hope and expectation in terms of challenging the other teams, but it didn’t work out that way. We performed well in patches, but these patches were not long enough. Results at this level are determined in inches and until this match we did not win enough of these inches.Italy coach Nick Mallett confessed that his side seemed tired following their win against France last weekend. “The guys ran out of steam a bit in the second half and that was a disappointment,” he said.“We should have put more points on the board in the first half when we had the bulk of possession and territory. When Scotland then began to put us under pressure, we did not respond the way I hoped we would,” he added. _____________________________________________________________________________________ sponsored by: Guinness Get your team out, with Sean Lamont!

NASCAR Fans Reach Out to EPA on RFS

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Jun 17, 2015 NASCAR Fans Reach Out to EPA on RFS SHARE Previous articleFDA Says Trans-Fats are not SafeNext articleSoybean Growers Build Relationships with Korean Customers Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Over the last five years since NASCAR made a switch to E15 American Ethanol, fans have developed a special appreciation for the horsepower of ethanol as well as its social and economic benefits. That new knowledge translated into action last weekend as hundreds of fans attending races in St. Louis and Michigan took time to send post comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asking it to reverse their decision to reduce the use of corn ethanol.“We make ethanol here, so it has many benefits, such as lower fuel costs for consumers, job creation, and of course cleaner air — which is why NASCAR changed to E15 American Ethanol,” said Jon Holzfaster, a farmer from Paxton, Neb. “So, it is very encouraging to see the fans engage and try to make sure the current Renewable Fuel Standard remains in place.”Several hundred fans sent post cards messages to expressing their concern should the country drift away from its commitment to renewable, environmentally superior biofuels.With the opening of the public comment period regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to cut corn ethanol in the Renewable Fuel Standard by nearly 4 billion gallons, the National Corn Growers Association is also urging farmers and their family and friends to email their opposition to this proposal as soon as possible, before the July 27 deadline.“One of the major goals of the American Ethanol program is to raise general public awareness of all higher blends of ethanol have to offer and it’s working,” Holzfaster said. “NASCAR fans have become more knowledgeable and supportive, so it makes perfect sense to give them a way to join farmers and show their support.”For details on the proposal and a link to send a quick email, visit ncga.com/rfs. Various draft comments are available to enable both farmers and their non-farmer friends to easily send personalized notes to the EPA.Corn growers from Michigan, Illinois, Missouri and Kentucky joined forces to continue the educational program over the weekend and to collect the messages to EPA from fans.Source: NCGA SHARE Home Energy NASCAR Fans Reach Out to EPA on RFSlast_img read more

first_imgMikeMareen/iStock(SILVER SPRING, Md.) — Hurricane activity is expected to increase in the Atlantic due to favorable oceanic and atmospheric patterns now that El Nino has ended in the Pacific, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday.The likelihood of an above-normal hurricane season rose to 45 percent, according to seasonal forecasters with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center — just in time for the peak season, typically August through October, to begin.“El Nino typically suppresses Atlantic hurricane activity but now that it’s gone, we could see a busier season ahead,” said Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center.The most recent outlook for the 2019 hurricane season includes 10 to 17 named storms, five to nine hurricanes and two to four major hurricanes, or storm systems that contain wind speeds of 111 mph or greater.On average, the Atlantic typically produces 12 named storms, six of which become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes, according to NOAA. Two storms have been named so far in 2019. *Updated* 2019 Atlantic #HurricaneSeason Outlook now calls for: 10-17 named storms of which 5-9 could become hurricanes, including 2-4 major hurricanes.
