But Vodafone has refused to sell. Instead, Colao has been pressing Seidenberg for a resumption of dividends in 2012, when Verizon Wireless finishes repaying a loan following its £20bn acquisition of rival in 2009.

Premier Foods, which also makes Mr Kipling cakes, Loyd Grossman sauces and Hartley’s jam, said that, although it was cautious about the consumer environment, it expected to make progress in 2011 and reiterated its target for generating £80m. The company said raw material inflation year-on-year is running at a percentage rate in the low teens. It added that it had secured price rises to cover the inflation it had seen up to the end of the first-quarter.The company offloaded its Quorn business and canned grocery operation to tackle its huge debt mountain, which in February was less than £900m. whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Share Premier Foods sales slide as ingredient prices rise Tags: NULL
AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: China Guangdong police foil crypto gambling ring Chinese police in the southern province of Guangdong have claimed to have broken up a massive illegal Fifa World Cup gambling ring hosting more than Y10bn (£1.1bn/€1.3bn/$1.5bn) in cryptocurrency bets.The police said that they had arrested six suspects as part of the operation.The ring was being hosted on the dark web, which is not indexed by traditional search engines, according to the South China Morning Post.Some 330,000 people registered to place bets on the platform from numerous countries, with the website having operated for eight months. It is also claimed that more than 8,000 ‘agents’ were used to recruit new members through a pyramid scheme to underpin the website and earned commission as a result.The gambling syndicate “used the loophole that virtual currency is not effectively regulated in our country” to make huge profits, the police said.The latest news represents the latest development in a huge crackdown on illegal gambling in the country, stemming from last September when the government shut down all local cryptocurrency exchanges and blocked the launch of any initial coin offerings.The announcement comes just days after more than 40 suspects linked to illegal online gambling were apprehended in Beijing.Guangdong police claim to have arrested more than 500 suspects from over 20 gambling rings in relation to the World Cup. However, the latest case is the first to exclusively feature cryptocurrencies.Earlier this month, it emerged that Chinese betting on the World Cup via the country’s Sports Lottery could be worth up to $7.5bn, with billions more set to be wagered via illegal gambling.Picture credit: Tasnim News Legal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Huge operation in southern province as government crackdown continues 13th July 2018 | By contenteditor Email Address

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares If you want to make millions in 2020, you may regard playing the National Lottery as a fun choice. But as with all lotteries, the odds of winning are extremely slim.Several games with different payout amounts and winning odds operate under the National Lottery brand. For example, if you play Lotto and pick five numbers plus the bonus number correctly, your average prize would be £1m. However, your chance of winning is a dismal 1 in over 7.5m.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…But do not despair! Thanks to the power of compound interest, you can retire rich without shooting for the moon.Yes, you can still have £1m or even more in your account if you invest your savings, especially if you start young.Longer-term ‘bet’Focusing on FTSE 100 dividend stocks or FTSE 250 growth shares, rather than the lottery, may provide a more favourable risk/reward opportunity to retire rich. My Motley Fool colleagues have written at length about funds and shares to consider for a diversified retirement portfolio and have pointed out that the stock market returns about 7%-9% annually on average.You can also find financial calculators online to see how much your savings would grow over time.Let us assume you are 25, would like to invest £1,000, in a fund now and would make an additional £3,600 of contributions annually at the end of the given year. You have 40 years to invest. The annual return is 8%, compounded once a year. At the end of 40 years, the total amount saved becomes £954,327. If the annual return increases to 9%, the amount becomes £1.247m and if the return is 10%, the final number is £1.638m.If you can increase how much you can save per month, say to £400 (or £4,800 a year), the amount at the end of 40 years at an annual return rate of 8% is £1.265m.To recap: these numbers show that a person who saves about £3,600 per year for 40 years, starting at the age of 25 and investing in various funds, could achieve a nest egg of around £1m at the age of 65.In other words, there is no need to play the lottery as we can pretty much all become millionaires in our lifetimes. Just remember is to start early and save a definite amount each month. FTSE investment optionsThe FTSE 100 is the index Britons mostly consider when they first start investing. It’s composed of the 100 largest companies (by market capitalisation) on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).As one of the highest-yielding markets in the world, it currently has a generous dividend yield of 4.5%. Any capital gains delivered by a stock in your portfolio would be an added bonus on top of the dividend.The FTSE 250 is the next 250 largest companies and they tend to derive more of their income domestically than larger peers. The index also has a number of investment trusts. The average dividend yield for the FTSE 250 is about 2.8%.If you are new to investing, you could buy individual stocks that are suited to novices, or make it easy and buy into a FTSE 100 tracker. Another option could be to invest in low-cost exchange-traded funds (ETFs). For example, if you are interested in dividend stocks, then the iShares UK Dividend UCITS ETF may be an ETF to consider.
Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Most investors think of FTSE 100 companies when they want to find the best dividend stocks. But hunting a little further down the list of Britain’s best businesses could offer greater rewards.When seeking the best dividend stocks, I want to see high yields now, consistent dividend per share increases, and plenty of dividend cover so those boosts are affordable.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…Trading upI think Plus500 (LSE: PLUS) is one of the best dividend stocks on the market today. Offering a 7.5% yield, it’s already a whopping payout for shareholders.The company’s long-term policy is to return at least 50% of net profits to shareholders each half year, with at least 50% of that through dividends. I like that kind of ambition. It says to me that CEO David Zruia recognises and wants to reward shareholders for helping to keep the company afloat. Plus500 dividends are also covered three times by earnings. That makes it one of the most robust businesses on the FSTE 250.As a share and contracts-for-difference trading platform, its profits soared in the pandemic. More investors deposited cash into the platform to play volatile markets. Plus500 shares also trade on a tiny P/E ratio of 4.4, which makes them significantly undervalued in my book. Offering value, high income and the prospect of solid future returns make this business one of my favourites. In March 2021 the company said it was confident in its outlook for the year as trading “remains strong”, but noted that monthly volumes were “volatile”.And while the it runs a relatively lean business model, it will need to ramp up its marketing to pull in more new traders. If Plus500 can’t continue to attract and retain active customers, profits could fall and with them the dividend.Aiming for the best dividend stocksNovice investors may avoid AIM-listed companies, but they could be missing out on the best dividend stocks, in my opinion. These businesses tend to more focused on fast growth than paying back shareholders.However, there is one that has hit the top of my best dividend stocks list.Personal Group (LSE: PGH) is relatively small with a market cap of just £77m. It pays a dividend today of 7.3%. The business has a number of strings to its bow, including offering health insurance and employee benefits programmes. It was founded in 1984, so it’s no upstart. And it has produced sizeable annual profits of £8m+ in the last two years on revenues of around £70m. Let’s consult the best dividend stocks checklist again. Are dividends affordable? Yes. The business has 1.2 times cover. But I’d like this number to be a little higher, for safety’s sake.A P/E ratio of 11 is well below the AIM average, making it decent value in my eyes. The company announced in FY20 results it had £20m in cash with no debt.It has secured new contracts with Royal Mail and Kingfisher, which helps justify its future outlook. And outgoing Chairman Mark Winlow said in May the company had cut costs by selling through video conferencing. This being a small AIM company, there are inherent risks of failing to sign up enough customers, and it faces significant competition in the insurance space. So the wide ‘moat’ favoured by Warren Buffett will need expanding as the company grows. I’d still buy both picks at these prices.

iStock/Thinkstock(CINCINNATI) — Cincinnati police and prosecutors have launched investigations after a teenager was mysteriously found dead in his van hours after calling 911 with pleas for help.Kyle Plush, 16, made two desperate calls to 911 before he died Tuesday from asphyxia due to chest compression inside his 2004 Honda Odyssey, authorities said.What happened?He was retrieving his equipment from the van to play tennis when the ordeal started, a source close to the family told ABC News.Plush became “trapped in the third-row bench seat,” Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters said.The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that a source with knowledge of the incident told the newspaper that Plush “put a knee on the third-row bench seat and reached over the bench seat into the rear well.”The source said, according to the Enquirer, that the bench seat then flipped backward and the force and weight trapped the boy upside down, with his “head in the rear well and legs in the air against the minivan’s rear door.”The Cincinnati Police Department and Hamilton County Coroner’s Office declined to comment to ABC News on The Cincinnati Enquirer’s reporting.Honda said in a statement Thursday it “does not have any specific information from which to definitively determine what occurred in this incident. We can confirm that there were no seat-related recalls affecting the 2004 Honda Odyssey.”Two gut-wrenching calls for helpAt about 3:14 p.m. Tuesday, Plush, in his first call to 911, said, “Help! I’m stuck in my van. … I need help!”An operator repeatedly asked Plush where he was but the teen could not hear the dispatcher and wasn’t able to answer the operator’s questions, police said.The teen did, however, say he was at “Seven Hills,” which is the name of the Cincinnati school he attended.Banging could be heard in the background. The terrified teen is heard screaming and later said on the call, “I’m in desperate need of help!”The call lasted nearly three minutes before it disconnected, police said. Dispatchers tried to call Plush back but reached his voicemail, police said.At 3:21 p.m., the incident was broadcast as an unknown trouble run and officers were dispatched, police said. At 3:26 p.m., officers arrived on the scene to investigate, police said.They patrolled the area and tried to find the caller or someone in distress, and then closed the incident at 3:37 p.m. and went back into service, police said.Plush called 911 again at 3:35 p.m. and a different dispatcher answered, police said.“I’m trapped inside my gold Honda Odyssey van in the … parking lot of Seven Hills,” Plush told 911. “This is not a joke.”Plush again said he couldn’t hear the call-taker. The dispatcher and Plush didn’t communicate and the information was not relayed to the officers who were still on the scene at the time, police said.“I probably don’t have much time left. Tell my mom I love her if I die,” Plush said. “Send officers immediately. I’m almost dead.”That night a family member found Plush inside the van, police said, and he was declared dead.Police and prosecutors investigateCincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac has directed an internal investigation into the actions of all employees involved in this case.The 911 dispatcher who received Plush’s second call was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.“This young man was crying out for help” when he spoke to that second dispatcher, Isaac said at a news conference Thursday. “We weren’t able to get that information to the officers on the scene. We need to find out why.”Plush died from “asphyxia due to chest compression,” a preliminary autopsy determined, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.The manner of death was accidental, the coroner’s office said. There was no evidence of foul play or a drug overdose, the coroner’s office said.Prosecutor Deters said he is reviewing Plush’s death with help from the coroner’s office.A community in mourningThe Seven Hills School said in a statement Thursday, “We are all grieving the loss of this beloved member of our school family — a young person of keen intelligence, good humor, great courage—and we feel this loss profoundly.”“The school’s counseling staff, assisted by outside grief counselors, are providing ongoing support to our community, our students and their families, as well as our faculty and staff,” the school said. “There is an ongoing investigation, and we are working with authorities in any way we can.”Mercy Montessori, where Plush was a student from kindergarten to sixth grade, said in a statement, “He was an inspiration to many children and teachers at Mercy Montessori. Kyle’s gentle spirit made it a joy for others to be around him. We lovingly remember Kyle as creative, vibrant, and kind.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
