I’d put what money I have into sectors that have been hit hard by the economic shutdown. That’s because I believe some sectors are fundamentally very profitable, but have been knocked by the lack of investor confidence. Once that confidence returns (and it will), the stock market will rise and the share prices of the companies in these sectors should outperform.Ongoing demand for housingWith that in mind, one of the first places I’d look to invest £1,000 and to generate a larger return is in a housebuilder. The industry as a whole benefits from an imbalance of supply versus demand that favours the homebuilders, as prices generally go up. There are some exceptions to that of course, as London-focused developers have seen in recent years. But generally, that’s the trend.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 such, housebuilders typically have high margins. That’s good if you’re an investor because it provides a margin of safety. I always think if a supermarket lowers prices then wafer-thin margins can easily translate into losses. That’s much more difficult if your margins are between 20% and 30% as they are at many of the housebuilders.In the event house prices drop, they simply have lower margins. There’s far less risk of the business swinging into the red. Another result of this is that in less exceptional times than the ones we currently find ourselves in, typically the housebuilders pay decent dividends to investors. Among my favourites are Persimmon, Bellway and Vistry.Unloved industry with bounceback-ability?A second place I’d look to invest for bigger returns is the industrials sector. Looking at the share prices of companies like Meggitt, Rolls-Royce and Melrose it’s clear they were hit hard in the recent market crash.The share prices still show signs of being very cheap based on P/E and PEG ratios. Low values on these ratios show the potential for the shares to show strong growth. That’s very good news for investors looking for potentially big share price rises.If we turn our attention to Melrose, an industrials turnaround specialist with a strong track record, we see a P/E of under seven. The PEG is 0.7. That ratio would be part of the criteria legendary growth investor Jim Slater would approve of. That’s because it shows an investor is getting growth at a cheap price, which is a win-win.With the Chinese economy now opening back up, and European countries and the US looking to do the same, I think industrials could see demand picking up.  Housebuilders and industrials strike me as industries that have been hit harder than they should have been by economic concerns. That means if I invest in them, my returns could eventually be much bigger. Unlike airlines and travel, I expect these industries to be back on their feet quicker and to correspondingly see their share prices rise faster once life returns to a greater semblance of normality. 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.

Man charged with murder of Limerick mother

first_imgNewsMan charged with murder of Limerick motherBy Staff Reporter – April 1, 2015 630 A 41-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Limerick woman Margot Seery in 1994.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Howard Kelly, with an address at Osprey Apartments, Naas, Co. Kildare was arrested last Friday morning in the Kimmage area of Dublin before being brought to court.He was brought to Rathmines Garda station where he was charged with the murder of Margot Seery at Kenilworth Square in Dublin on October 8, 1994. Ms Seery was 49 at the time of her death.Kelly appeared before Judge Michael Walsh at Dublin District Court as Detective Garda Gabriel Duffy indicated that the matter would proceed by way of trial on indictment and that the book of evidence had yet to be completed.Given the nature of the charge, Judge Walsh said he would remand the defendant in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court next week. Bail can only be adjudicated on by the High Court.Granting free legal aid, the Judge said he was taking account of the fact that defence solicitor Stephen Walsh said that Mr Kelly “has mental health difficulties” and he ordered that all medical assistance should be granted to the accused while in custody.The body of Margot Seery was exhumed from Rathkeale Cemetery on September 16, 2014 and taken to University Hospital Limerick where a post-mortem examination was performed by deputy State pathologist, Dr Michael Curtis.Following the post-mortem examination, the remains were re-interred and a man was arrested and questioned in relation to the death. A file was then prepared for the DPP which subsequently led to the charges being made against Howard Kelly.

HR strategy forum

first_img Previous Article Next Article HR strategy forumOn 22 Jul 2003 in Personnel Today The dilemma: I am the new HR director of the European divisionof a US-owned specialist technology training consultancy. Globally, thebusiness has grown by 70 per cent per annum in the last three years, but growthin the European division has been static. I have been recruited to help turnthe business around. The parent company hopes to float the company on the Nasdaq next year, butcannot do so until the European division, the second largest in the group, hasbeen restored to rapid, profitable growth. There are a number of barriers tosuccess. While the quality of our delivery is exceptional and customers alwaysrecommend us, we have no organised sales processes or capability within thebusiness. There is no dedicated sales organisation, and sales efforts are typicallyreactive, with operational project managers following up leads as and when theysurface. As a result, the organisation struggles to drive sales growth in aconsistent pipeline, and finds it difficult to forecast accurately. Although weoffer interesting work and good opportunities for global travel, staff turnoveramong fee-earning consultants is at about 40 per cent. They are beingconsistently poached by bigger, generalist consultancies. These organisationssee technology training as a small but profitable sideline that can be boltedon to their core business of enterprise-wide systems implementation. They areperceived as higher status employers, offering opportunities for trainingconsultants to move into lucrative programming work. Recruitment is an ongoing problem. It is fully devolved to line managers,and recruitment costs are spiralling out of control as we try to backfillresignations on time-critical projects. We are struggling to maintain promisedstaffing levels on existing projects, and I am worried that as we move into agrowth situation we will not be able to staff new projects. What strategicsteps should I be considering? Solution 1 by Neil Roden, HR director, Royal Bank of Scotland The European operation has some key strategic HR issues to address to meetits business goals. Particularly the effectiveness of the sales team, retentionof good staff, cost control and possibly morale. Step 1 Board buy-in: Review the business case with the European boardto ensure a common understanding of and buy-in to the business goals,priorities and issues for the European operation. Agree the need to quicklydevelop a transformational people strategy that supports these business goalsby addressing key issues such as sales structure, resourcing, retention andemployee attraction costs. Step 2 Address key strategic HR issues: Review the organisationalstructure in the sales team – consider appointing a head of sales to drive theteam forward. There is a need to introduce better sales processes, embed asales culture and recruit a proactive, qualified team. This is crucial todelivering rapid growth. Step 3 The organisation is losing significant numbers of staff. Reviewyour internal resourcing and development strategy to address 40 per centturnover, retain good employees and ensure the appropriate staffing of roles.Establish an attraction strategy that communicates your employee propositionand is underpinned by revised recruitment processes. Consider training managersin conducting structured interviews.  Addressthe spiralling recruitment costs through key supplier relationships andnegotiated rates.  With 40 per centturnover and low profitability, there may be a morale dip that needs to beunderstood and addressed. Step 4 Agree an implementation plan: Once you have identified the keyissues and your proposed actions, you need to review them with the board andagree on how you plan to implement them. It is essential your strategytranslates into business performance measures, such as increased income orreduced cost, and not just intangibles. Step 5 Communicate and mobilise: This is something you need to dowith the board’s agreement. To succeed, staff will need to be engaged in thetransformation of the business. They need to know what it is, have clear goalsto strive for, and understand what they need to do to deliver it. Maximise theavailable communication channels and ensure there is opportunity for two-waycommunication. Solution 2 by Louise Allen, director, LA Partners Step 1 Differentiate between short- and long-term priorities: Becausethe performance of the European business is an essential part of a widerstrategy to float on Nasdaq, there will be tremendous pressure on the HRdirector and European managing director to make changes very quickly.Therefore, a short-term strategy will be essential. This must be balanced bydeveloping a longer-term strategic response in tandem. Step 2 Short-term – refocus on sales: This should be your immediatepriority. The business has a reputation for good work, so this could become theunique selling point for winning future business. Work with the sales directorand sales team to review where and how they have been successful in the past(and where not). Harness this information to create a revitalised salesprocess. Start with the core client base, targeting the sales force to takeadvantage of repeat business, expanding from there. Step 3 Short-term – performance management: Examine the performancemanagement system – how are targets set; are accountabilities clear; who arethe good performers; are they recognised and rewarded as such? Overhaul thesystem to ensure clarity of business goals/sales targets and ensure regularhigh quality reviews take place. Identify and single out the high achievers forspecial recognition and reward. Celebrate success. Step 4 Short-term – leadership issues: The shortage of goodconsultants is seriously inhibiting business performance. Revisit why so manyare leaving. What key issues can be reversed quickly, for example, pay,benefits, bonuses, and so on? Make a strategic decision to invest in thosepractices that are essential to stem the losses. If there is a lack of moraleor motivation, consider the quality of management among the sales team. Isthere a leadership issue to be addressed? Step 5 Longer term – develop strategies for recruiting and growing atalent base: For example, can candidates be sourced and groomed once theyhave graduated? Other issues appear to centre on the quality of leadership,direction, focus and structure. It will take more time and effort to resolvethese issues. It is essential to ensure that these issues are are prioritisedin line with business growth targets, so that appropriate investment is made available.It is a people business after all.

Arctic Terns Sterna paradisaea from the Netherlands migrate record distances across three oceans to Wilkes Land, East Antarctica

first_imgArctic Terns Sterna paradisaea have an exceptionally long-distance migration, annually travelling back and forth between the Arctic and the Antarctic. Birds from Greenland, Iceland and the USA were recently found to spend most of the non-breeding period in the Weddell Sea, a small part of the large Antarctic range of Arctic Terns. Based on ring recoveries and sightings of West European Arctic Terns in the Indian Ocean and Australian waters, we expected that terns from The Netherlands (the southern limit of the breeding range) inhabit different Antarctic regions during the non-breeding season to their conspecifics from Greenland. To find out, geolocators were deployed on seven Arctic Terns captured on the nest in 2011 in The Netherlands. All birds were recaptured in 2012 and five devices yielded information on migration routes. The tracked terns spent on average 273 ± 7 days away from The Netherlands, and visited known staging areas in the North Atlantic and the Benguela Current, on both the outward and return journey. Similar tracks were observed in the terns from Greenland. However, hereafter the terns from The Netherlands moved to a previously unknown staging area in the central Indian Ocean, between 20–40°N and 65–100°E, and spent most of the non-breeding season in the Southern Ocean between 35–150°E. One bird migrated as far as New Zealand. Eventually, all five birds spent the austral summer in Wilkes Land, Antarctica, before flying back to the breeding colonies with a small detour to the same North Atlantic staging area they visited on their southward migration. The total travel distance in the course of the non-breeding period was 90,000 ± 2000 km, which substantially exceeds previous estimates for this species. Our study revealed new offshore staging areas and a yet unknown route through three different oceans, the longest bird migration described thus far.last_img read more
