FTSE 250 stock in focus: is Britvic among the best shares I could buy now?

first_img Image source: Getty Images FTSE 250 stock in focus: is Britvic among the best shares I could buy now? Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Britvic. 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. UK shares are having a rough week, but FTSE 250 drinks manufacturer Britvic (LSE:BVIC) issued an upbeat trading update with improved profit guidance for the year. Sales over the summer were particularly good, and it’s embarking on an exclusive bottling agreement with PepsiCo. This 20-year agreement extends a well-established relationship since 1987. It gives Britvic the right to produce, distribute, market and sell Pepsico soft drink brands throughout the UK in a franchising capacity. So could Britvic be among the best shares to buy now?Throughout the summer and autumn, nationwide restrictions have encouraged shoppers to buy more of Britvic’s offerings for drinking at home. Whether this will continue once normality resumes is unclear. However, Britvic remains confident in its ability to invest and grow throughout 2021. I think this is reassuring, and the defensive nature of its dependable products gives me optimism for its future. 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…Debt, sustainability goals and growthIn an encouraging sign for shareholders, the FTSE 250 group is also working on reducing its net debt. It hopes its year-end adjusted net debt balance will come in at £40m-£50m lower than last year.With pressure on companies to improve sustainability and planet protection, Britvic is on a mission to comply. It plans for all its UK manufactured plastic bottles to be made from 100% recycled plastic by the end of 2022. This is a big improvement on its previous target.I like its business model, and the products it sells. I also think Britvic has enough of a selection of drinks to give it long-term strength. At the time of writing, Britvic has a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 25, which is quite high. This could be off-putting if it weren’t the norm these days for solid-looking companies to have a relatively high P/E. Earnings per share are 30p, and its 3.9% dividend yield remains on hold.Fluctuating share priceThe Britvic share price is down 12% year-to-date but has risen 44% since its March market crash low. The FTSE 250 stalwart IPO’d back in 2005 with a share price around £2.10. Investors buying back then, who still hold the shares today, will have made a 275% gain, despite the intermittent fluctuations. This is the beauty of lifelong investing. By following a buy-and-hold strategy, the share price ups and downs can largely be ignored, and any dividends reinvested for capital accumulation and compound gains.  Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Consumers still need to drink and will continue to buy the brands they love. In its recent update, management indicated it would continue marketing and bringing out new products in 2021.I think management knows how to give people what they want and will adapt as necessary to continue to grow.

An integral part of our philosophy is that the best design solutions come out of the most difficult spatial problems. The brief for the Corner House presented us with the requirement for a relatively large house and interior spaces on a medium sized site. The challenge was how to satisfy this brief with a contemporary sustainable house that connected to a quality outdoor space and resulted in an exciting external expression that was sensitive to its surroundings.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathRather than the traditional inclusion of front and rear gardens, the design concept sacrificed a rear garden in order to create a single, bigger front garden. The result of siting the new dwelling towards the southern rear end of the site to maximise the setback from the main frontage results in a house which is both exciting and restrained in its street presence, satisfying its brief and good sustainable design principles.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathExternal curves and screens soften the patterned sculptural façade, which floats above its concrete base. The variety of interior living spaces are filled abundant natural light, cross ventilation and warm materials, resulting in a comfortable and open low energy home all year round.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe Corner can be reduced into two simple ideas; a house with one high amenity garden and a broken down building mass. Once this was clarified during the design process many future design decisions could be made in regards to these two interlocking ideas – how building mass was broken down and softened, where the living spaces and bedrooms would be, how the entry would work and so on, the expression of the house to the street and passer-by and so on.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathWe understand that the scale and proportion of a building is an essential priority in Architecture and aim to carefully balance these to achieve memorable outcomes. The Corner is sited, shaped and orientated to allow its owners to enjoy a liveable and welcoming house which interacts with landscape and streetscape.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Skewed House / LIJO.RENY.architectsSelected ProjectsMei and Felixx Propose Housing for Postwar Residential Area in MunichAwarded Competition Share Houses Australia Landscape: Structural Engineer: Builder: Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath+ 10 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Area:  460 m² Area:  460 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBower ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on March 10, 2015Cite: “The Corner / Bower Architecture” 10 Mar 2015.

Stop DA office coverup, free Mumia now!

first_imgFor the second time, Common Pleas Court Judge Leon Tucker ordered the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on June 22 to release its files pertaining to any role played by former District Attorney Ronald Castille in the case of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.As Tucker decreed in the court’s initial order on April 28: “[T]he discovery production shall include any and all documents or records in the possession or control of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office” that show Castille’s “personal involvement in the case.” It said records should include but not be limited to memoranda regarding this case during pretrial, trial, post-trial and direct appeal proceedings.The order also covered any notes or memoranda on meetings between Castille and his staff regarding the case, as well as press releases or other public statements by Castille about the case.During his tenure as DA, Castille ran for election to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. His campaign rhetoric made repeated references to his role in bringing about dozens of death row convictions, as well as his strong support for the Fraternal Order of Police. The FOP, notorious for urging Abu-Jamal’s execution, was a major Castille campaign donor.Castille had been assistant DA at the time of Abu-Jamal’s 1982 trial, and was Philadelphia DA when his office opposed Abu-Jamal’s direct appeals in 1988. Abu-Jamal’s current discovery petition concerns the fact that Castille, then a justice on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, refused to recuse himself when the case came before his bench.In June 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court made a landmark decision in Williams v. Pennsylvania that judges must remove themselves from any case they had a hand in prosecuting. Castille was the DA and later state Supreme Court judge in the Williams case. Currently, 14 Pennsylvania prisoners, including Abu-Jamal, are fighting for appeals on similar grounds.In response to Tucker’s initial order, the DA’s office released a meager 50 pages of public record, continuing their outrageous cover-up. Tucker’s latest order gives the DA until July 7 to comply or face sanctions.All out for July 7 Philly protestSupporters of Abu-Jamal will rally outside the Philly DA’s office at noon on July 7 demanding it give up the files. Demonstrators will have blown-up, poster-size copies of Tucker’s order so that passersby can see the DA cover-up for themselves. They are also urging people to continue a phone-in campaign to first assistant DA Kathleen Martin, at 215.686.8000, with the message: “I’m calling regarding Judge Tucker’s ruling about discovery in Mumia Abu-Jamal’s appellate cases. The DA’s office needs to release all his files immediately.”The Philadelphia DA’s office has a history of cover-up and corruption. It has also served as an important launchpad for political careers, including those of Castille and former DA Ed Rendell, who subsequently became mayor of Philadelphia, governor of Pennsylvania and head of the Democratic Party’s National Committee. Former DA Lynne Abraham, known as the “death penalty queen of the world,” was responsible for issuing warrants that police used to launch their deadly attack on the MOVE organization in Philadelphia in 1985.The most recent scandal to rock the foundations of the DA’s office was the high-profile trial of current DA Seth Williams on several counts of corruption and fraud. Among the charges he faced was taking money — intended to pay for his aging mother’s nursing home bills — to finance his own lavish lifestyle.In a surprising turn of events, Williams pled guilty to one count on June 29. The judge immediately revoked his bail, sending Williams directly to federal prison to await sentencing in October. With all the evidence against him, Williams likely took the plea deal to seriously reduce the potential 20-year sentence.Elected as DA in November 2009, Williams had adamantly held out for two years against a federal Supreme Court order to release Mumia Abu-Jamal from death row. He finally announced in December 2011 that his office would no longer appeal the ruling or seek the death sentence.The humanitarian thing to do at that time would have been to release an innocent man who had been unjustly jailed and tortured for 30 years. Instead, Williams stood with the widow of the police officer whom Abu-Jamal had been accused of shooting as she publicly called for Abu-Jamal’s death.Evidence increasingly supports Abu-Jamal’s claims that racism, corruption and judicial misconduct at all stages of his trial were the reasons he was convicted. Now, with the chance of a legal victory that could potentially release him, it is more important than ever to be in the streets to demand “Free Mumia now!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Senate Unanimously Passes Grain Standards Reauthorization

first_img Senate Ag Committee Chair Pat Roberts of Kansas and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow of Michigan say the Senate has unanimously passed the bipartisan U.S. Grain Standards Reauthorization Act of 2020. The act regulates marketing standards for grains and oilseeds and extends the inspection authority through September of 2025.“The Senate has approved the Grain Standards Reauthorization Act, which will allow America to continue fostering a healthy domestic grain market and positive relationships with our trading partners,” says Roberts.Stabenow says as farmers face unprecedented uncertainty and trade instability, it’s vital to maintain the integrity of the grain inspection system.“The bipartisan bill protects the interests of American farmers and ensures our credibility as a reliable producer of high-quality crops,” she says.The bill would include customers and applicants for inspection or weighing services in the list of people that must be notified in writing when a state agency intends to temporarily discontinue official inspection or weighing service.The bill still needs approval in the House and will also require that the USDA conduct a thorough review of the agency’s official geographic areas.

Court noted that in view of the facilities being provided to her, she is taken care of as far as her health conditions are concerned.Division bench of Justice RD Dhanuka and Justice VG Bisht were hearing the criminal appeal filed by the activist and lawyer, who suffers from several comorbidities. Her appeal states that due to her age and pre-existing medical conditions like diabetes, hypertension and a history of pulmonary tuberculosis, Bharadwaj is at a high risk of contracting coronavirus in prison, and that this infection in her present medical condition would be life threatening.Interestingly, a medical report submitted by jail authorities on July 21 states that Bharadwaj suffers from ischemic disease among other ailments, which leads to reduced supply of blood in the body. However, after a bench headed by Justice AA sayed sought a fresh medical report of Bharadwaj from the State on August 17, a report was submitted by NIA on August 21, exactly a month after the first report and there was no mention in the said report of ailments like ischemic disease etc.Bharadwaj’s counsel Ragini Ahuja contended that the two medical reports are contradictory to each other. She submitted that the latest report dated August 21 submitted by NIA is ex-facie false and inconsistent with the report dated July 21. She said that the latest report does not deal with the diseases suffered by Bharadwaj like hypertension, osteoarthritis, ischemic disease and Tinea Corporis (skin fungal infection) as well as diabetes. Thus, the report dated August 21 cannot be considered by this Court while considering the appeal filed by the appellant, Advocate Ahuja argued. Appearing for the NIA, Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh submitted that the appellant was thoroughly examined by the Medical Officer at Mumbai District Women Prison, Byculla, Mumbai and after examining the appellant, the Medical Officer has submitted the said medical report dated August 21 which is self explanatory. “Even in the case of Varavara Rao, who required medical treatment in the private hospital was admitted to Nanavati Hospital and was provided proper treatment”, ASG Singh argued. Whereas, Public Prosecutor Deepak Thakare adopted the submissions made by ASG Singh and submitted that as and when appellant requires any further treatment, medical facilities and hospitalization, as may be advised, State Government would provide such medical treatment. The bench went through the appellant’s latest medical report which states that-“At present the undertrial Prisoner No. 566/20 namely Sudha Bhardwaj’s health condition is stable and satisfactory and for her ailments treatment is available in the hospital. She is provided all necessary medicines as and when required.”Thus, the bench observed-“We are inclined to accept the report dated 21/08/2020 submitted by the Medical Officer, Mumbai District Women Prison, Byculla, Mumbai. In our view, there is no inconsistency in the reports dated 21/08/2020 and 28/08/2020 placed on record.In our view, in view of the facilities being made available in the Mumbai District Women Prison, Byculla and in view of the statement made by learned PP and learned ASG for NIA recorded aforesaid, the Appellant is taken care of in so far as her health conditions are concerned.”Finally, dismissing the appeal, Court said-“In view of the aforesaid observations that there is no inconsistency in the reports, we are not inclined to direct the NIA or the State to file any affidavit to explain the inconsistency in the reports. In our view, no case is made out for grant of bail. Appeal is devoid of merits.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
