Ireland slams IMF speculation as tension looms over its budget

first_img whatsapp Share whatsapp Sunday 19 September 2010 10:04 pm IRELAND’S finance ministry and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have sought to calm markets after a report on the possibility of an IMF bailout spooked investors.The cost of insuring Irish sovereign debt against default hit a record high and the Irish/German spread reached a euro lifetime peak after the Irish Independent newspaper said Ireland was “perilously close” to calling in the IMF and the EU.The IMF said it did not foresee that its financial assistance would be needed for Ireland and praised Dublin’s efforts at propping up its banking system.Ireland’s Department of Finance slammed the Irish Independent article. “There is absolutely no truth to a rumour concerning external assistance. It is based on a local misinterpretation of a research report,” a spokesman said in a statement.The newspaper cited a report from Barclays Capital. Barclays said Ireland’s liquidity position was comfortable but if unexpected banking losses emerged or economic conditions deteriorated outside help may be needed. “The report is a lot more measured than what has been reflected in the newspaper,” said Geraldine Concagh, at Allied Irish Banks.

Net income rose 45 per cent to $911.1m, from $628.4m the previous year. “RIM’s business continues to grow and diversify as BlackBerry adoption accelerates in markets around the world,” co-chief executive Jim Balsillie said.

Should I buy this FTSE 100 stock?

The UK stock market has performed well since the Covid-19 sell-off. Investor sentiment has been positive due to the Brexit deal and the successful vaccination drive. The FTSE 100 index has risen about 25% in the past year.Today, I would like to review Sainsbury’s (LSE: SBRY) to see if it’s a potential buy.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…Fundamentals The UK food and grocery market demand has been strong. According to researcher Kantar, the over-65s that have been vaccinated have increased their trips to supermarkets. When we look into the February 2021 shopping figures, the UK’s ‘big four’ supermarkets have done well. Looking specifically at Sainsbury’s, sales increased by 12% to hold its market share of 15.6%.In the interim results, total retail sales grew by 7.1%. The company’s focus on online sales is showing good results. Digital sales were up 117% to £5.8bn: these were approximately 40% of total sales.The retail free cash flow was positive, which is another reason for me to like this FTSE 100 stock. The management expects full-year profits to be at least 5% higher than the previous year.Sainsbury’s is restructuring its business. It is closing Argos stores in many cities and plans to accommodate its business through online channels or in existing Sainsbury’s stores. It also plans to reduce the staff and office space in a bid to save costs. The multi-brand and multi-channel formats have helped to sustain the competitive supermarket industry. The store’s layout is wide and it makes shopping in Sainsbury’s very easy. The decision to buy Argos is also a good long-term plan, I believe. Argos has a very good brand value, which compliments very well with Sainsbury’s. The delivery or click-and-collect service is very reliable. It has a growing loyal customer base due to the excellent service.Risks to consider in this FTSE 100 stockSainsbury’s has been able to differentiate in the past as a premium offering. However, nowadays consumers are looking for value. As such, it is losing market share to discounters like Aldi and Lidl. The company has recently started an ‘Aldi price match’, which is a good strategy. However, the company’s profitability will be affected. The company has benefitted from increased grocery and food usage during the Covid-19 pandemic. There has been a clear shift from the consumer’s spending on pubs and restaurants to supermarkets. However, this demand might slow down when people start going back to offices and outdoors. Also, the restructuring of the business will have near-term costs. A lot of Argos stores are being closed. Sainsbury’s is also planning to reduce office space. It is uncertain today how consumers might adjust to this new format.ConclusionSainsbury’s is a fundamentally strong company. The shares are currently trading at a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 12. I believe in the current environment the valuation is cheap. However, I am not a buyer of this FTSE 100 stock today. I will keep the stock on my watchlist since I am not yet convinced that it will overcome the competition in the supermarket sector. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Tennis player Cameron Norrie is going pro after this semester

He’s the only competitor to win every Big 12 match he competed in this season with a perfect 10-0 record in singles and doubles.Norrie was born in South Africa and moved to Auckland, New Zealand at a young age where he played squash in the driveway with his mom, and then started playing at a local gym.When he was 15-years-old, he went on a tour around Europe, traveling for five months.At age 16, Norrie changed his nationality from New Zealand (NZL) to play for Great Britain (GBR) and moved to London by himself. He lived and trained at the National Tennis Center, and then lived with a host family for two years while he continued his training.“I hit a rough patch when I was 18, I couldn’t win a match when I was touring Europe,” Norrie said. “I was struggling, I wasn’t enjoying my time on the court, I wasn’t happy, so my mum and I started looking into American universities.”That’s when Norrie enrolled at TCU to play tennis for the Horned Frogs.“College helped Cameron to grow as a person and as a tennis player” said teammate Guillermo Nunez of Santiago, Chile. “He got more mature and learned how to handle different kinds of situations.”When he was a teenager living alone in London, Norrie said that all he wanted was to be a professional tennis player. Now, he’s headed to the pros in a few weeks, turning his dreams into a reality. Linkedin Kristen Clarke is a senior studying sports & broadcast journalism from Barrington, Illinois.

The bench comprised by Justice Soumen Sen and Justice Harish Tandon took notice of a newspaper article whereby the Chairperson had stated that there has been a spike of domestic violence cases during the lockdown, including reported cases of sexual abuse of children and violation of other child rights. The Court therefore ordered, “We direct the Chairperson of the West Bengal Commission for Women to share information of child rights violation during the lockdown period as reported to the said Commission with the Learned Advocate General by Tuesday (23.06.2020) so as to enable the Learned Advocate General to place it before us on the next date of hearing.” The court has also asked the Home Secretary to file an affidavit disclosing all details relating to child rights violation cases in the state. The order has been passed in a suo moto case registered for protection of children lodged in shelter homes, etc., from the contagion. During the course of hearing, the court also ordered the Child and Social Welfare Department to provide details on the system developed by it to conduct “post-restoration follow up” on restored children. The Department had informed the Court that DCPUs/ Staff of CCIs regularly follow up with restored children, about their physical and mental health, economic condition of the families, food security, sensitisation about taking precautionary measures against COVID 19 and so on. For this purpose, a structured questionnaire has been developed. The court has now called for an affidavit to be filed by the Secretary, disclosing the nature of the instruction issued and materials and documents relating thereto including structured questionnaire with illustration of few cases, by 24th June, 2020. Inter alia, the court has directed the Principal Secretary, Labour Department, Government of West Bengal to file an affidavit in relation to infringement of child rights via-a-vis labour laws and also disclosing the steps taken by the authorities to bring the perpetrators of such offenders to justice.
