Following a restructuring plan, the loss-making Yoplait returned to profit. Thursday 18 November 2010 8:15 pm whatsapplast_img read more

Don’t miss out! A dirt-cheap dividend growth stock I’d buy for my ISA before February

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. See all posts by Royston Wild Don’t miss out! A dirt-cheap dividend growth stock I’d buy for my ISA before February “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img The share price of Morgan Sindall Group (LSE: MGNS) has soared in recent months. Up 42% from the start of October, the stock has seen buyers flock back now the threat of a ‘no deal’ Brexit has been averted (for now).I think the construction and regeneration firm could keep on rocketing, too. Indeed, I reckon the release of 2019 results on Thursday, 20 February, could encourage more waves of frantic buying.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…Morgan Sindall certainly impressed the last time it updated investors, in November. Back then it said that recent strong trading meant that full-year results would be “slightly above” prior expectations. The company’s secured workload, as of September, was up 10% year on year at £7.3bn. This workload comprised a secured order book of £4.1bn (up 15% on an annual basis) and a regeneration and development pipeline of £3.2bn (up 4%).Cash machineThe November update also advised that cash generation had been better than previously expected, and Morgan Sindall expected to report average daily cash of above £100m for 2019, up from £99m the year before. This news should come as a particular joy to income-chasers. It suggests that Morgan Sindall’s reputation as a reliable and generous dividend-raiser will remain in tact.The London-based business has lit a fire under shareholder rewards over the past half decade. Between 2013 and 2018, it hiked total annual dividends by 96%, and last year, it raised them by 18% to 53p per share.It’s no shock that City analysts are expecting more mighty growth in the medium term. Payouts of 60.8p and 63.5p are estimated for 2020 and 2021 respectively, compared to an expected 57.5p for 2019. These readings of chunky of 3.5% and 3.7% dividend yields also beat the broader 3.3% forward average for UK mid-caps.Construction sector bouncing back?It wouldn’t shock me if those dividend estimates were to end up looking a little light. And I would argue the same for Morgan Sindall’s earnings forecasts, where City brokers currently expect bottom-line rises of 5% in 2020 and 4% in 2021.You might think I’m crazy to suggest that the business could outperform broker estimates. After all, the latest IHS Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) for the sector dropped to 44.4 in December, down markedly from the 45.3 recorded a month earlier and signalling further market contraction.However, that PMI gauge gave the likes of Morgan Sindall reasons to be cheerful. Despite that poor headline number, IHS Markit economics associate director Tim Moore says that “construction companies signalled that business optimism has recovered to its strongest for nine months.”He comments that, following the Conservatives’ thumping victory at December’s general election, respondents to the survey said that they believed “a more predictable domestic political landscape and clarity on Brexit could deliver a much-needed boost to clients’ willingness-to-spend in 2020.”Signs of a pick-up in the market in Morgan Sindall’s forthcoming update could certainly help its share price to rise. At the moment it trades on a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 10.7 times, a reading that’s low enough to support more strength in the near term. I reckon this is one growth and income hero worthy of serious attention today.

Foto de LeeAnne Watkins[Episcopal News Service] Portando pancartas que decían “La Iglesia Episcopal está aquí” y “A la Iglesia Episcopal le preocupa esto”, la Rda. LeeAnne Watkins y otros episcopales de Minnesota se unieron a los millares de manifestantes en San Pablo el 21 de enero, poniendo en marcha un movimiento en “un día miserable de charcos y hielo”.Un día después, Watkins ya estaba atendiendo el llamado del movimiento de la Marcha de las Mujeres a la acción local posterior. Con ayuda de un coordinador profesional y de una compañía de teatro, la iglesia episcopal de Santa María [St. Mary’s Episcopal Church] en San Pablo auspiciaba un foro intergeneracional el 22 de enero que incluía una representación destinada a que los “mayores enseñaran a los jóvenes lo que significa respetar a las mujeres”, dijo Watkins, de 50 años, que lleva 18 de rectora.Como en cualquier otro lugar, el número de los manifestantes excedieron las expectativas. En San Pablo, por ejemplo, Watkins dijo que, si bien los organizadores habían contemplado la participación de unas 20.000 personas, la policía calculó la asistencia en alrededor de 100.000.“Fue alegre y pacífico y divertido”, dijo ella. “Hubo abrazos cuando la gente se reconocía. Había grupos de centros de trabajo y montones de jóvenes y personas en sillas de ruedas.“Yo fui porque se trataba de manifestarse a favor de las mujeres…de los derechos de las mujeres y las niñas, acerca de la libertad reproductiva, respecto a los inmigrantes en nuestro estado, acerca de la dignidad de todas las personas. No fue una marcha en contra [de algo]. Fue una marcha en pro de todos los valores que sostengo y que están conformados por mi fe”.Ella añadió que: “dondequiera que fuimos, la gente nos salía al encuentro y nos decía ‘me alegra que la Iglesia Episcopal esté aquí. Cuénteme de la Iglesia Episcopal’. Ser una presencia episcopal allí fue realmente importante para nosotros”.La Rda. Sarah Quinney dirige a los miembros de la Iglesia, entre ellos a la Rda. Anne Smith (a la izquierda) y a Myles Clarke (a la derecha) en una oración por la paz antes de comenzar la Marcha de las Mujeres en Sacramento, California. Foto de Paula Schaap.Desde Nueva York a Sacramento pasando por Washington D.C., los episcopales se unieron a las entusiastas manifestaciones. Los organizadores dijeron que unas 600 “marchas hermanas” atrajeron montones de participantes en todo el mundo. Se calcula que más de un millón de mujeres, hombres y niños, algunos llevando gorros rosados tejidos con orejas de gato —el símbolo extraoficial de la marcha— ocuparon las calles de la capital de la nación y en muchos otras ciudades, cantando coreando consignas y portando mensajes de esperanza y de paz.Nota de la redacción: Un álbum de fotos de las marchas en Estados Unidos puede verse aquí.La iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad en Wall Street [Trinity Wall Street], Nueva York, envió a la capital de la nación dos autobuses llenos de “gente de todas las edades, niños, adolescentes, adultos… era asombroso, mucha más gente de lo que cualquiera habría esperado. Fue sencillamente tremendo y el espíritu fue amable y entusiasta y realmente deseoso de relacionarse con otras personas”, dijo Ruth Frey, principal encargada del programa de justicia social y reconciliación de La Trinidad.Frey expresó que participar de la marcha era importante para ella, tanto desde el punto de vista profesional como personal. “Hablé con bastantes personas para saber que ha sido una temporada deprimente”, dijo ella a ENS. “Pero este fue un momento de esperanza y de luz en esa temporada deprimente, y hubo allí personas de todo tipo, que se ocuparon de una variedad de distintos asuntos. Pero todos sentimos de alguna manera que el gobierno que acababa de entrar no está dispuesto a proteger y promover los derechos de todos”.Personalmente, dijo ella, la marcha conduce directamente a la promesa del Pacto Bautismal de “trabajar por la justicia y por la paz y respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano. Ese lenguaje ha estado muy lejos de la retórica que nuestro nuevo presidente ha estado usando”.El tamaño masivo de la multitud le impidió a ella acercarse a la tribuna para escuchar a destacados oradores, que iban desde la notable feminista Gloria Steinem al cineasta Michael Moore, las actrices America Ferrera y Ashley Judd, y las cantantes Madonna y Alicia Keys, así como las senadoras demócratas Tammy Duckworth (Illinois), Kamala Harris (California) y la representante federal Maxine Waters del 43er. distrito congresional de California.Pero Frey dijo que eso no tenía importancia. Lo que importaba era el momento, el movimiento, la presencia del Espíritu, los mensajes coreados por la multitud, entre ellos: “La democracia es como esto” y “somos el voto popular” y “Necesitamos un líder, no un pavoroso [usuario de] Twitter”.El Muy Rdo. Michael T. Sniffen, deán de la catedral de la Encarnación [Cathedral of the Incarnation] de la Diócesis de Long Island, hablando vía telefónica mientras desfilaba a lo largo de la avenida Pensilvania, acercándose a la Casa Blanca, dijo: hay una apasionado sentido de estar aquí para demostrar los valores democráticos que rogamos que perduren en esta nación”.Sniffen, cuyo grupo de la catedral viajó a Washington con el de La Trinidad de Wall Street, dijo que él se había encontrado con manifestantes de otras tradiciones religiosas.“Es maravilloso encontrarse con personas que están trabajando a favor de la justicia para todos y de respeto por la dignidad de todo ser humano”, afirmó. “Es un día maravilloso para la Iglesia, ver a tanta gente reunida aquí, recordándonos que todos las libertades que disfrutamos y que Dios nos ha dado sólo nos pertenecen cuando luchamos por ellas.“Por la gracia de Dios, tendremos la pasión y el coraje y la energía de proseguir esta lucha”.Mujeres sacerdotes episcopales sostienen una pancarta durante la Marcha de las Mujeres el 21 de enero en Washington.

Jeanne Person, la segunda de izquierda a derecha seguida por la Rda. Deborah Dresser y la Rda. Alison Quin, en la extrema derecha. Foto del programa de K. Jeanne Person en Facebook.Spencer Cantrell, de 28 años, reside en Silver Spring, Maryland, y asiste a la parroquia episcopal de Santo Tomás [St. Thomas Parish Episcopal Church] Dupont Circle, en Washington, D.C., y trabaja con supervivientes de violencia doméstica. Ella definió la marcha como “un momento conmovedor” y dijo que era importante estar allí “para que nuestras voces se escuchen”.“Se corre la voz de que Trump podría quitar alguna financiación [para combatir] la violencia contra las mujeres, o para las artes, y ya está haciendo cambios en la atención sanitaria”, dijo ella.“Trabajo con los supervivientes de la violencia y es importante hacerles saber que los apoyamos y que seguiremos llegando a nuestros representantes y haciéndoles saber nuestro sentir”. Es importante también, dijo ella, mantenerse conectados con la Red Episcopal de Política Pública y con la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal.Michelle Cox, miembro de la iglesia de La Trinidad [Trinity Church] en Nueva Orleáns, dijo que ella estaba acostumbrada a las multitudes del Martes de Carnaval, pero que se sentía sorprendida por la energía positiva y la muestra de apoyo y de simpatía hacia los extraños del masivo número de personas que fluyó hacia la capital de la nación.Ella también se mostró impresionada de escuchar a Gloria Steinem e incluso a Madonna, cuyo lenguaje salaz provocó disculpas de varios medios que estaban reportando la marcha.“Fue sencillamente fantástico”, dijo Cox, madre y ama de casa con dos hijas, de 9 y 12 años. “No recuerdo la última vez que tuve un día en que no encontrara alguna forma de negatividad. Allí no hubo ninguna; fue notable”.Cox calificó el lenguaje de Madonna de “desafortunado”, pero añadió, “creo que fue su recurso efectista. Ella tenía que encontrar una manera de escandalizar y escogió el lenguaje. No obstante, fue estupendo tenerla allí”.Lianne Thompson, guardiana mayor de la iglesia episcopal de Santa Catalina, en Nehalem, Oregón, sostiene la bandera de la Iglesia Episcopal mientras se prepara para desfilar por Astoria, Oregón. Foto de Ann Fontaine vía Facebook.Una oradora en particular, Sophie Cruz, joven activista de los derechos de los inmigrantes, le sacó las lágrimas. “Ella habló acerca de juntarnos y de la apertura del mundo y del amor, y fue exactamente un mensaje absoluto de amor. En verdad de la boca de los niños”.Cox dijo que ella se había unido a la marcha porque “no recuerdo unas elecciones donde me sintiera tan descontenta con lo que pensaba que iba a suceder y lo que realmente sucedió y que en verdad me afectó, y también a mis buenos amigos.“Sentimos que las mujeres en particular quedaron excluidas de la manera en que tuvieron lugar las elecciones. Las mujeres estaban siendo muy denigradas y me resultó sorprendente que mi país eligiera a alguien que yo encontraba tan en contradicción con la manera en que creo que debemos respetar a todas las personas. Buscaba una forma de enfrentarme con eso”.Ella espera seguir a los organizadores de “Diez cosas que hacer en los primeros cien días” después de la marcha, como enviar tarjetas de prensa a líderes del Congreso.Pero añadió que “es el momento de tener conversaciones con la gente y no temer a hablar de política en tu vida diaria. Debemos cerciorarnos que escuchamos a muchísima gente y que hablamos con muchísima gente y ese va a ser nuestro punto de partida”.Su grupo llevaba gorros púrpura, dijo ella, porque el púrpura es una mezcla del rojo y del azul. “No puedes avanzar si eres sólo roja o azul. Tenemos que unirnos y ese fin es el verdadero espíritu de la jornada”.Sarah Steffner, de 44 años, vive en Chattanooga, Tennessee, pero voló a Washington, D.C., con algunos amigos y se encontró con otros en la marcha, la mayoría ex alumnos de Sewanee, la Universidad del Sur.Ella se sumó a los manifestantes por “la obvia actitud de irrespeto de nuestro presidente, y las palabras que utiliza para calificar a las mujeres. Ella espera que será en definitiva una lección para sus hijos, de 8 y 11 años, respecto a cómo tratar a otras personas que son diferentes de uno o cuyas necesidades difieren de las de uno. “Era importante para mí mostrarles a mis hijos que existe un límite… y que estas no son cosas que nadie está bien que diga, incluso si es el presidente electo de Estados Unidos”.La marcha también fue un lugar para establecer conexiones, dijo Steffner. Ella recordaba haberse puesto en contacto con la oficina de su senador para abogar por el control de las armas de fuego “y la mujer que respondió al teléfono en verdad se rió de mí.“Me sentí personalmente tan desalentada de que mis representantes a nivel estatal y federal no les importe”, dijo. “Pero, lo que esto (la marcha) me demuestra es que no puedo dejar que ese sentimiento se imponga.Victoria Lynn Garvey, líder laica de la Diócesis de Chicago y ex miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal se prepara a participar en la manifestación en el centro de Chicago. Foto de Shawn Shreiner vía Facebook“Tengo que seguir expresando mis creencias y manteniéndome activa y participando en protestas y personándome en defensa de cosas y diciendo que sé que vivo en un estado donde el 70 por ciento de la gente no concuerda conmigo, pero eso no me convierte en una inútil”.En Chicago, Antoinette Daniels, feligresa de la iglesia de San Pablo y el Redentor [St. Paul and the Redeemer] dijo que la esperada asistencia de 50.000 a la marcha aumentó hasta las 250.000, y que, en lugar de desfilar, los participantes celebraron una concentración en el lugar.“Participe en la marcha por decoro, respeto y cortesía entre seres humanos”, comentó Daniels en un blog. “Creo que nos hemos alejado de esos valores desde el pasado diciembre”.En Sacramento, California, los manifestantes corearon: “El amor, no el odio, es lo que hace grande a [Estados Unidos de] América” y la Rda. Betsey Monnot, co-rectora de la iglesia episcopal de Todos los Santos [All Saints Episcopal Church] dijo que la marcha fue para mostrar “el poder de la comunidad”.“Hay personas aquí que están ejerciendo el derecho que les da la Primera Enmienda para decir que no están contentos con el rumbo que parecen tomar las cosas, y quiero que la Iglesia Episcopal sea parte de ello”.Los carteles de algunos manifestantes decían “El amor vence al odio” [Loves Trumps Hate haciendo un juego de palabras con el apellido del presidente] y “Hagan a América generosa otra vez”. La Rda. Anne Clarke sostenía un cartel pintado a mano que decía: “Practica la justicia, ama la misericordia y humíllate ante tu Dios —Miqueas 6:8”.Steffner, de Chattanooga, dijo que asistir a la marcha la había llevado, tal como sugerían los organizadores, a volcar su entusiasmo en las oportunidades locales. Ella se propone unirse a la Unión Americana de Libertades Civiles para abogar a favor de leyes que regulen el uso de las armas de fuego.“Una de las grandes cosas que he aprendido de esto es lo que significa una respuesta rápida”, dijo ella. “Cuando uno se entera de un proyecto de ley no dispone de seis meses para llamar y hacer una declaración. Quiero unirme a esos prestos respondedores y participar siempre que pueda y hacer oír mi voz aunque perciba como que nadie escucha”.–La Rda. Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service.

Two years without an independent press

first_img to go further September 17, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two years without an independent press Follow the news on Eritrea January 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak case Organisation EritreaAfrica Reports Eritreans have only been allowed to hear and read the official press for the past two years, ever since the government shut down all privately-owned publications. At least 14 journalists are still imprisoned and Reporters Without Borders calls again for their immediate release. News Receive email alerts News RSF urges Swedish judicial authorities to reverse Dawit Isaak decision News Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home? Reporters Without Borders today made a new appeal to the Eritrean government to free 14 of the country’s leading journalists imprisoned for the past two years and allow the independent media, which were all shut down in September 2001, to reopen at once.The press freedom organisation said the unique situation meant Eritreans had only had official news for two years, plus any foreign radio stations they could tune in to. The closures and arrests have made Eritrea the sole country in Africa and one of the very few in the world where only the government media is allowed.Eritrea is also the biggest prison for journalists in Africa. The authorities have given no information about where the 14 are imprisoned or what their conditions of detention are. Government ministers and members of the ruling party have several times called them “traitors” but none has been charged with any crime.The government ordered the closure of all privately-owned publications on 18 September 2001 and over the next few days at least 10 of their journalists were arrested and taken to the main police station in Asmara, the capital. They were Yusuf Mohamed Ali, editor of Tsigenay; Mattewos Habteab, editor of Meqaleh; Dawit Habtemichael, his deputy; Medhanie Haile (deputy editor) and Temesgen Gebreyesus (board member) of Keste Debena; Emanuel Asrat, editor of Zemen; Dawit Isaac and Fessehaye Yohannes, of the newspaper Setit; Said Abdulkader, of the magazine Admas, and a freelance photographer, Seyoum Tsehaye.The 10 began a hunger-strike on 31 March 2002 and in a letter smuggled out of jail said they were protesting against their illegal imprisonment and demanding their “right to justice” and a trial by a “fair and independent court.” They were transferred to an unknown place of detention on 3 April. In January and February 2002, three journalists from the government media were arrested: Hamid Mohamed Said and Saidia Ahmed, of the government TV station Eri-TV and Saleh al-Jezaeeri, of the government radio station Voice of the Broad Masses. No reason was given.Another journalist, Akhlilu Solomon, the local stringer for Voice of America, was arrested at his home on 8 July 2003. Officials said he had been taken to a military camp to do his compulsory national service. But VOA noted he had already done part of it and been exempted from the rest on medical grounds.
