RP iGaming Index: The only way is up?

first_img Index performance was flat and volatility reduced in the period to January despite the news flow from Italy, Romania, the UK and Sweden. By Paul Leyland RP iGaming Index: The only way is up? Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling Volatility was somewhat reduced in what tends to be a quieter trading period, with three stocks up and displaying double-digit growth (LeoVegas, Scientific Games, Sportech) and seven down by over 10% (Codere, Gamenet, GiG, IGT, Intralot, Nektan, Stride).The period was not quiet from a news flow perspective, however, with both Italy and Romania delivering last minute negative tax changes.While the latter is not a significant market for any listed companies, the former is and explains the share price reactions of fourof the main fallers (Codere, Gamenet, IGT, Intralot).Tellingly, however, Playtech ended the period up slightly despite indicating a material hit to profitability. This is perhaps unsurprising, given that Playtech’s shares have fallen by 50% since the inception of the index.Investors likely considered enough expectation of bad news had already been priced in. Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Bingo Poker 22nd January 2019 | By Stephen Carter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address One group that has not responded as a bloc are Swedish-facing operators, despite the introduction of point-of-consumption regulation in the market during the period. Most traded within a normal single-digit range, while LeoVegas materially outperformed (see stock in focus, below).This indicates to us that the market is not expecting big changes from Swedish-facing performance other than that already understood and priced in (e.g.tax impact) without further evidence (indeed, the fact that the market is now regulated is not that price sensitive, since everybody knew it was coming).However, as we have written before, the Swedish market could shape out quite differently from current expectations, with the negative pressures of social responsibility requirements and greater monopoly competition not fully understood by .com operators or the markets. Evidence may lead to correction, therefore.Stock in focus: LeoVegasLeoVegas has had a troubled period within the index. Prior to inception the stock was something of a sector darling that appeared to do no wrong: strong organic growth, savvy M&A, highly respected management.The Q3 performance wobble (UK and Sweden-led) took much of the shine off this and the stock has halved during H2. In this context a 19.4% increase during the period is perhaps not much to shout about – the proverbial dead cat (or in this case lion) bounce.However, LeoVegas continues to have strong fundamentals and the market is likely to be expecting it to recover its performance and continue to outperform (see Figure 1).One of the issues we have with this view is the group’s confidence in regulation growing markets. For instance in its 2017 AR the group demonstrated its analysis that about half of 20% GGR tax can be mitigated by market growth and efficiency.There is clear evidence (and logic) to suggest that where marketing andpayment channels are materially restricted then regulation which lifts those restrictions will grow the market.However, we do not see those restrictions as material in Sweden, certainly not compared to interventions on bonusing, the requirement to market in a ‘moderate’ way and, most importantly, the direct competition of the two largest online gambling companies for the first time (i.e.competition might go down in volume but it goes up a lot in quality).LeoVegas is therefore something of a canary in the mine for whether regulation grows markets almost regardless of the nature of the previous market or the regulatory requirements being introduced.Thanks to the company’s strong operations management and highly transparent granular reporting, performance in 2019 will be a very useful and very visible test of this theory.Disclaimer: The narrative provided represents the opinions of the authors.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Bingo Another potential big value influencer of the index was the timing of the UK’s ban on the B2 element of gaming machines in betting shops.The required legislation was passed in the period, meaning that GVC could cancel its contingent value rights (CVR) and be assured of paying no more for Ladbrokes Coral.GVC also has a material exposure to Italy through Ladbrokes Coral.However, the fact that the shares increased by 2.8% demonstrates both that the market fully understood and priced in the CVR risk while also that GVC’s business is sufficiently diversified internationally that big changes in Italy are not necessarily hugely significant for the group.In the coming months of regulatory change, this diversification is likely to be much appreciated by investors.last_img read more

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. Buying cheap UK shares after the recent stock market crash may not lead to high returns in the short run. After all, the world economy faces an uncertain future that could weigh on stock prices over the coming months.However, with valuations now appearing to include wide margins of safety in some cases, there may be buying opportunities for long-term investors.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…With that in mind, here are two UK shares that appear to offer good value for money. They could boost your retirement plans over the coming years.Dividend growth opportunityAmong UK shares that have recorded falls since the start of the year is SSE (LSE: SSE). Its share price has fallen by 9% in 2020, with the utility company’s recent results highlighting the impact that coronavirus is having on its financial performance.For example, the business reported a decline in adjusted operating profit of 37% for the 2020 financial year. Lower electricity demand was a major contributor that could persist over the short run.Despite this, SSE maintained its dividend payout for the year. Even though it faces an uncertain regulatory environment, it plans to stick to its five-year dividend plan that could see shareholder payouts increase at a similar pace to inflation. This could make the stock relatively attractive in an era where dividend cuts have become somewhat commonplace across a wide range of UK shares.Certainly, the company faces difficult operating conditions in the short run. However, its investment in the green economy could pay off over the coming years through catalysing its bottom line.With the stock having a current dividend yield of 6%, it appears to offer good value for money. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of it for the long term.Undervalued relative to UK sharesAnother business that could be worth buying today within a portfolio of UK shares is ITV (LSE: ITV). The company’s market value has fallen by 55% since the start of the year. This is somewhat unsurprising due to its cyclical status at a time when the UK faces one of its deepest recessions in living memory.The company’s most recent trading update highlighted a 7% drop in revenue, with reduced advertiser demand and restrictions on working practices contributing to its weak financial performance.In response, ITV is seeking to cut costs and will continue to invest in its digital services. They could provide the business with a growth catalyst over the long run. Indeed, streaming and online services look set to become more popular among consumers.Clearly, further falls cannot be ruled out for the ITV share price. Alongside other UK shares, it faces an unclear future. However, its stock price appears to take into account many of the risks it faces. And with its seemingly sound strategy, it could offer recovery potential that helps to improve your retirement prospects in a diverse portfolio of stocks. 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.

7 of the best FTSE 100 shares I’d buy now to capitalise on the stock market recovery

The Motley Fool UK has recommended Barclays and Unilever. 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.center_img The year 2020 was challenging for investors holding FTSE 100 shares. But vaccines for Covid-19 present us with a path that could potentially allow the world to escape from the grip of the coronavirus pandemic. And on top of that, businesses have been finding ways to cope with the crisis and many have been trading well.So, I’m not going to fall into the trap of underestimating the potential of world economies to recover. And I remain optimistic about the way human ingenuity will not only overcome the crisis but find ways to prosper in the years ahead too.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…The best FTSE 100 shares I’d buy nowAs such, I reckon it’s a great time to go shopping for shares. I’d look for businesses with the enduring potential to recover and grow. And there are several promising stocks within the FTSE 100 I’d aim to hold for several years.For example, packaging and paper company Mondi looks well-placed in today’s world of online trading and parcel deliveries. I reckon the firm has the potential to increase its cash flow and dividends in the years ahead.And for a top dividend yield just under 5%, I’d go for water and wastewater firm United Utilities. The sector is defensive and UU has a regulated monopoly position serving the North West of England.Meanwhile, it’s been a few years since I last looked at telecommunications giant Vodafone. For a long time, the shares appeared to over-value the business. But since the beginning of 2018, a down-trend in the share price has made the stock look like good value again.With the share price near 128p, the forward-looking dividend yield is north of 6% for the trading year to March 2022. And I think it’s worth having because Vodafone’s business has some defensive, cash-generating characteristics.One of the prominent investing themes right now is the potential for beaten-down cyclical businesses to recover further as the pandemic fades. And I’d address that potential with shares like housebuilding company Barratt Developments and banking outfit Barclays.Locking quality and growth into my portfolioAnd the share price has been weak recently for the London-listed king of fast-moving consumer goods, Unilever. The company has some tasty quality metrics and almost always looks expensive. But I’d want the stock in my long-term portfolio and tend to see any weakness in the share price as a buying opportunity. So, I’d buy some shares now.My final pick of the seven is catalyst systems supplier Johnson Matthey. City analysts have penciled in a rip-roaring 30%-plus recovery in earnings for the trading year to March 2022. And in the recent half-year results report, chief executive Robert MacLeod said he’s “excited” about the company’s medium-term growth prospects.He reckons opportunities are arising for the business because of “accelerating global trends.”  And Johnson Matthey is investing for its future and focusing on areas of business such as battery materials, fuel cells, and hydrogen production technologies. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Experience tells us that when epidemics overwhelm health systems, the impact on children is deadly.“They are so dependent on their parents and susceptible to plunging into extreme poverty, should anything happen to them.“As well as already being vulnerable to diseases and malnutrition, the secondary impacts of a crisis like Covid-19 on children in fragile contexts is devastating – oftentimes, they must engage in child labour to survive; see their families sink into poverty; or suffer isolation and psychological harm.” he said.World Vision, which launched a major emergency response to the Ebola outbreak in 2015, analysed various impacts including reduced access to healthcare, decreased immunisations and a rise in malnutrition.The report demonstrates that the combination of pre-existing weak health systems, populations with high need, and this current pandemic may lead to catastrophic mortality for children.The report comes as World Vision launches its €70 million response plan to combat the effects of the virus.With the majority of its more than 37,000 staff being locally based, the organisation has been responding since January to the initial outbreak in Asia, and plans to reach 22.5 million people across 17 priority countries. THIRTY million children are at risk of disease and death because of the secondary impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, a new report warns.Aftershocks, a new report released today by child-focused aid charity, World Vision Ireland, reveals millions of children are under threat from other diseases and increased food insecurity.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Weak health systems quickly becoming overwhelmed and more people being pushed into extreme poverty means lives are at risk, the charity says.The charity has announced that it plans to increase its initial reach from 11 million to 22.5 million people across 17 priority countries, with its Covid-19 response.The report analyses the devastating secondary impacts on children of the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak, and models what would happen if they were replicated in the current crisis.It focuses on these consequences in the 24 most fragile countries covered by the UN’s COVID-19 humanitarian appeal.Key findings:Secondary impacts will threaten many more children’s lives than COVID-19 itself. Current child deaths are low because severe novel coronavirus infections are rare among children.As many as 30 million children’s lives are in danger from secondary health impacts:26 million+ children at greater risk of being exposed to other deadly diseases for lack of immunisation5 million+ children could suffer from increasing malnutrition, an increase of almost 40% from current levels100,000+ children could die from malaria, a 50% increase from current levels Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival TAGSCoronaviruscovis19Keeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Postworld vision WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League openerlast_img read more

FBI investigating after US woman dies on cruise ship en route to Aruba

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Authorities are investigating the death of an American woman on board a Princess Cruises ship on Tuesday.The 52-year-old woman, described only as a “female guest” on the Royal Princess from the U.S., died under unclear circumstances. The ship was on a seven-day cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Aruba.No cause of death has been reported.“The incident was reported to the FBI and local authorities and the local authorities met and boarded the ship upon arrival in Aruba,” Princess Cruises said in a statement Wednesday. “We are cooperating fully with the investigating authorities, including the FBI.”The ship, which can carry up to 3,560 passengers, was expected to return to South Florida on Saturday. The Royal Princess is set to undergo a $15.9 million makeover in just a matter of weeks.“We are deeply saddened by this incident and offer our sincere condolences to the family and those affected,” the cruise line said.The woman’s name and hometown have not been released.The death was the second announcement of a person being killed on a cruise ship on Wednesday.
