The share price of international distribution and services company Bunzl (LSE: BNZL) is bucking the prevailing trend today and creeping up!According to the share-focused website ADVFN, around 8% of all shares on the London stock exchange are rising today but a whopping 61% are declining. The remaining 31% are unchanged.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…As I write, the market is weak with the FTSE 100 index down more than 3% since its opening level on Friday last week. Indeed, every share in my own portfolio shows red today.The market likes the full-year figuresSo, with the share price up around 3%, it appears that the market likes Bunzl’s full-year results report released this morning. And I find the figures to be reassuring. At constant currency exchange rates, revenue increased by 1% compared to the prior year and adjusted earnings per share rose 1% too.But digging a little deeper reveals more good news. The operating margin ticked up from 6.7% to 6.8% and free cash flow grew by 10%. The company reckons cash conversion came in at 101%, which demonstrates profits are backed with powerful cash flow.The directors continued the firm’s remarkable 27-year record of annually raising the total dividend by pushing it up by almost 2.2%. The thing I like most about Bunzl is its long record of rising cash flow and dividends. I keep a watch list of shares labelled ‘defensives’ such as Bunzl, along with the likes of GlaxoSmithKline, SSE, Britvic, PZ Cussons and many others.Generally, I’m always looking to buy the shares of these companies when opportune moments arise, and Bunzl’s share price has drifted around 23% lower over the past year or so. I reckon the stock is worthy of my research time right now.Consistent trading suggests a strong nicheWith such consistent financial and trading figures, it’s no surprise that Bunzl has carved a niche for itself in a steady market. The firm supplies non-food and generally not-for-resale products to businesses, organisations, and sectors. We are talking about stuff that customer-organisations use themselves in the day-to-day running of their operations, such as chemicals, safety consumables, bandages, gloves, labels, films, grocery, packaging, and products for cleaning and hygiene.The business operates internationally, with around 51% of adjusted operating profit coming from North America, 27% from continental Europe, 13% from the UK & Ireland, and 9% from the rest of the world. So, if you buy some of the company’s shares, you’re making a big bet on the health of the US economy.And the forward-looking dividend yield of just over 2.6% for 2020 won’t be the biggest you’ve ever seen, but I like the way the dividend keeps on growing. Looking ahead, chief executive Frank van Zanten said in the report he expects ongoing challenging trading conditions ahead, but he believes Bunzl will continue to grow earnings because of its vibrant acquisition programme – the firm sees itself as a consolidator operating in fragmented markets.I like Bunzl and would be more confident holding the shares into a general economic downturn than I would be holding out-and-out cyclical shares such as banks, oil companies and retailers. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

In respect of 1, there is a stay…this was a suo motu matter (before the Uttarakhand High Court) so there is no-one on the other side”, began SG Tushar Mehta.”The Akhil Bhartiya Akhada Parishad filed an intervention seeking that the structures not be demolished. Our undertaking is that we are bound to demolish by virtue of Your Lordships directions. Our undertaking is to demolish them by May 31, 2021″, he advanced.”This classification of the structures as unauthorised is not correct as per the Uttarakhand Rules…we are neither able to go to the High Court nor come here, our grievance is not being redressed anywhere…”, argued the counsel for the intervenor Akhada Parishad.”We cannot accept your argument to not demolish the structures! We can’t open everything now because of the judgment of this court”, observed Justice M. R. Shah.”Everything that is without permission is unauthorised! The land belongs to the Irrigation Department. It was allotted to you temporarily, it was not a permanent allotment! How could you undertake construction on it?”, asked Justice Ashok Bhushan.”Look at the picture! It is a permanent construction!”, commented Justice Shah.”I have spoken to the Chief Secretary also. Your Lordships can consider rejecting his application. We are not supporting it”, said the SG.”We are anyway rejecting it”, noted Justice Bhushan.”The state wants time till May 31, 2021, so the structures can stay till then. But the state should be permitted to demolish them May 31, 2021″, ordered the bench.The Supreme Court by order dated 29.09.2009 has required that no unauthorised constructions was henceforth to be carried out in the name of Temple, Church, Mosque, Gurudwara, etc. on public streets, public parks or other public places; and, after noting that affidavits were filed except by the State of Uttarakhand, the Chief Secretary of the State of Uttarakhand was directed to file an affidavit within two weeks from the date of that order.The Supreme Court further directed that, with a view to ensure implementation of the directions issued by it, the matter should be supervised by the concerned High Courts and, accordingly, remitted the matters to the respective High Courts to ensure implementation of the order in an effective manner.The order of the Supreme Court dated 31.01.2018, required the Chief Secretaries, in consultation with the respective Governments, to frame policies in respect of existing unauthorised constructions of a religious nature which had already taken place; and to review the same on a case to case basis.The high court had taken suo motu cognisance of the issue as the state government had failed to comply with the 2009 direction. Thereafter, the high court had directed the state to demolish all these structures by March 23. The government, however, has been seeking extension of time, stating that many of the structures are used to host Kumbh Mela scheduled early next year.Next Storylast_img read more

With two nights to work his charm in Charleston, Keller delivered two totally unique performances. The first night saw him perform solo, backed by his typical and impressive display of multi-instrumental tape loops. The second night was a more traditional concert affair (though perhaps less traditional for Keller himself), as the guitarist was backed by his tight-knit KWahtro ensemble featuring Gibb Droll, Danton Boller, and Rodney Holmes.The first night of the run saw Keller mix his classic originals with unique covers, delighting fans with his one-of-a-kind solo performing style. The Grateful Dead’s music was on full display in the run, as Keller picked on “Mountains of the Moon” and “Shakedown Street” during the first show, and would bring out “Eyes Of The World” and “Scarlet Begonias” in the second. There were also a number of familiar favorites, like “She Rolls” and “Gate Crashers,” as well as “Best Feeling” and more with the full band.Thanks to yuforic on YouTube, we can watch a series of videos from the solo performance below. The full setlists from the two night run, as well as photos of KWahtro by Ellison White Photography, can be seen below as well. Load remaining imageslast_img read more

first_imgNeil Young has announced the upcoming double-album reissue of his 1990 studio album with Crazy Horse, Ragged Glory. Young’s 18th career studio album (his sixth with Crazy Horse) was initially released back in September 1990, following extensive rehearsal sessions with the band at California’s Plywood Analog studio. Those sessions ended up churning out an additional 38 minutes of recorded material, which has been recently rediscovered by John Hanlon, one of the recording engineers who worked on the album with Young and Crazy Horse.The original album is 62 minutes of pure, unadulterated garage rock joy. The distortion friendly project includes a mix of guitar-friendly songs ranging from the less-than-three-minute “White Line” to a pair of 10+ minute jams in “Love to Burn” and “Love and Only Love”. Those were just a few of the songs which Young and Crazy Horse would play and rehearse twice a day for two weeks during the album’s pre-production, which is where this plentiful bounty of extra recorded material comes from, most of which has never been heard by fans.The announcement from the Neil Young Archives website also gives fans an idea of what kind of quality these unheard songs and recordings carry, and it’s apparently very good.“Listening to these tracks is a real head-scratcher,” it reads in a statement shared by the website. “They are equal to anything on the existing record, maybe better. Possibly, the thought at the time was to have a single album and not include the songs from the last half of the unique ‘set oriented’ recording sessions.”The reissue is planned to be titled Ragged Glory II, although no official release date has been announced as of Tuesday. Fans should expect the double-album to arrive sometime early in the coming year, possibly on all three formats of vinyl, CD and high-definition digital.News of the upcoming reissue follows a slightly entertaining few weeks of opposition between Young and promoter British Summer Time. The rock guitarist was prematurely announced to co-headline an outdoor concert in London’s Hyde Park with Bob Dylan and His Band next July, although that event seems to be up in the air with Young vehemently opposed to playing any show with Barclays Bank on as a presenting sponsor. Regardless of what happens over in Britain next summer, Young will play a run of solo concerts in Wisconsin and Milwaukee next month, with tickets to the shows available for purchase here.[H/T Rolling Stone]last_img read more

first_img Free legal research available Visit floridabar.org to access fastcase online services Fastcase, the Bar-approved free legal research service for its members, is now up and running.The service, available through the Bar’s Web site at www.floridabar.org, went online as the Bar’s Annual Meeting opened June 22 in Orlando. The Bar had hoped to provide the program earlier in the month, but problems with the Bar’s Internet service forced a delay of several days.Fastcase President Phil Rosenthal manned a booth at the Annual Meeting explaining the service to Bar members, and said he found a receptive audience.“People are coming up and saying they just started their practice and they’re so relieved they have this free member benefit,” he said.Approved by an enthusiastic Board of Governors earlier this year, the five-year contract provides free access to most state and federal resources pertaining to Florida to all Bar members. For an additional $195 annually, Bar members can buy access to fastcase’s complete national law database, covering all 50 states and all federal courts. That service typically sells for $995 annually.“It’s really a great thing. It’s one of the best things that has happened to the Bar,” said Frank Walker, a member of the Board of Governors and chair of the Member Benefits Committee, when the panel met at the Annual Meeting.Immediate past Bar President Kelly Overstreet Johnson touted the program as a major accomplishment for the past year in her farewell address during the convention’s General Assembly.To underscore the committee’s support for the program and belief in its importance for Bar members, Walker suggested, and the committee agreed, to monitor its operation at every committee meeting during the coming year. That will enable members to evaluate the service’s operations. To assist in that effort, members also said they would ask fastcase to keep a log of calls from Bar members.Committee member Ike Iaconis, who worked extensively to bring the research benefit to the Bar, said he had a chance to try the service before the Annual Meeting. He said fastcase is providing a good basic service, but it won’t have all the bells and whistles of some expensive online legal research services.“It’s working; it’s working well. There is some fine-tuning that has been suggested,” he said. “If you try it, you’re going to really like it. It’s not a Cadillac; it’s a Chevrolet.”Fastcase, however, does provide dual column printing of opinions, Iaconis said, and its presentation on the Internet is “clear as a whistle.”Under the contract with the Bar, fastcase is providing at no cost to members Florida Supreme Court decisions since 1950, and all district court of appeal opinions since the inception of the DCAs. Also included will be all U.S. Supreme Court decisions, opinions from the Fifth and 11th U.S. circuit courts of appeal, the Florida Administrative Code, Florida Statutes, and the Florida Constitution.Access is through the Bar’s Web site at www.floridabar.org. A button on the right side of the screen will take members to a fastcase log-in page. (Bar members log-in name is their attorney number, while the password is the same as they have set up for the Bar’s storefront operations that allow members to pay dues or sign up for CLE courses online. There will be a link for members if they have not previously signed up and created a password.)Once signed in, members will go to a fastcase page that allows them to begin a search. That page has tips for conducting an efficient search and instructions, such as searching for opinions or subjects during a specific time frame. A name or subject can be typed in the search box, and all related cases, statutes, and cites will be returned.Those using the free service will automatically have their searches limited to the state and federal courts and sources listed above. Those who sign up for the $195 national service will have the option of selecting a national search or Florida-related search.“The most significant comment you’ll hear is people aren’t believing it. People don’t believe they have this opportunity,” Iaconis said. He added some people have thought the service would be free for a few weeks or months and then they would have to pay, and were happy to learn the Florida service is free for as long as they want to use it.“It’s happening; it’s terrific,” he said. “People are excited.”Iaconis said there is a link to fastcase’s Web site from the search page, and members can find a number for a help desk there. He reported that he called late in the evening and found the desk both manned and helpful. July 15, 2005 Regular News Free legal research availablelast_img read more
