British gas owner Centrica and others are considering plans to move rigs out of UK waters to Norwegian and Dutch areas of the sea to avoid a 12 per cent hike in oil production taxes.Centrica told Treasury officials and government ministers at meetings last week that it is also reconsidering £700m of new North Sea investment it announced only in February.Sources close to Centrica told City A.M. that “a number of companies are looking at their options” and that they could “refocus their production” in the region if the tax was imposed. A Centrica spokesman said no decision had been made on moving rigs out of UK waters but said the firm was “assessing the impact” of the tax raid.“We are assessing the impact of the proposed tax increase on all of our operations and projects that we have in our plan and that includes the £700m investment,” he said.Michael Tholen, economics and commercial director at UK Oil and Gas, said rigs could be easily moved across borders by tug boat or internal engines and linked to new pipelines. “It is wholly understandable that companies which have operations in both the UK and the Netherlands may now switch investment abroad,” he said.

first_imgForget gold and buy-to-let. Here’s what I’ll do if the FTSE 100 crashes by another 20% Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. Image source: Getty Images. The FTSE 100 has crashed by as much as 20% since the start of the year. In the near term, further declines could be possible depending on how the spread of coronavirus impacts on the world economy’s growth rate.However, even if the index does decline by another 20%, it could offer superior long-term return prospects compared to gold and buy-to-let properties. Low valuations, the index’s past performance and its growth potential could combine to produce impressive returns for investors who ignore short-term uncertainty and buy for the long run.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…ValuationsAt the present time, the FTSE 100 appears to offer a wide margin of safety. Evidence of this can be seen in its dividend yield, which stands at one of its highest-ever levels of 5%. This suggests that investors are expecting the world economy’s growth rate to significantly decline in the coming months, which could negatively impact on the financial performance of the index’s members.If the FTSE 100 falls by another 20%, it could become even more attractively priced. This would entail it trading at a level that has not been experienced in around 10 years. As such, investors may be able to buy high-quality companies while they trade on exceptionally low valuations. This could improve their risk/reward ratio, and ultimately lead to higher returns in the long run.Relative appealOf course, the FTSE 100’s recent crash, and the prospect of further falls for the index, may cause investors to focus their capital on other assets. Gold, for example, has become increasingly popular due to its status as a store of wealth. However, it now trades at a seven-year high. This suggests that there may be less capital growth potential than there has been in the past.Likewise, buy-to-let properties may fail to deliver the high returns investors have come to expect from the property market. Certainly, low interest rates may help to support the market. But since house prices are close to a record high when compared to average incomes, they may become increasingly unaffordable over the medium term.Buying opportunitiesIt is difficult to feel comortable about buying shares after they have fallen heavily. It is even more challenging to do so with there being the prospect of further declines.However, whether the FTSE 100 falls 20%, 40% or any other figure in total in the current crash, its long-term recovery prospects seem to be bright. It has been able to successfully recover from all of its previous crises. Since many of them were exceptionally severe, such as the 1987 crash and the financial crisis, the index has the capacity to deliver a turnaround.As such, investors may wish to buy high-quality shares while they trade on low valuations. Doing so could lift their returns over the long run, and improve their financial future in the coming years.

The GameStop (NYSE: GME) share price has surged by nearly 5,500% over the past 12 months. Investors and traders have piled into the stock as it’s continued to push higher.What started as an online phenomenon has grown into something bigger. Investors and traders from all walks of life are trying to capitalise on what’s become one of the most talked-about companies on the New York Stock Exchange.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…Unfortunately, the company’s fundamentals haven’t matched up to its staggering share price performance so far.GameStop (GME) share price fundamentals In its 2021 financial year, the organisation reported revenues of $5.1bn and a loss of $215m.Before the recent rally, the GameStop (GME) share price had been under pressure for years. The company, which owned a large brick-and-mortar retail estate, was struggling to compete with online peers.However, last year was a bit of a watershed for the group. As the pandemic raged around the world and the company’s stores suffered yet more disruption, management took a decisive step to move more business online.It’s taken several other steps to become more forward-thinking. It’s hired several new executives including Amazon.com executive Elliott Wilke as chief growth officer and Ryan Cohen, the entrepreneur who built Chewy.com into a pet supply giant and sold it for more than $3bn. In addition, rumours suggest Cohen will bring in e-commerce experts with the goal of transforming GameStop into a retailer fit for the 21st century.As well as these initiatives, the GameStop share price received a boost when it emerged that the company was looking to branch into the worlds of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and cryptocurrencies.Even though some analysts believe the recent rally in GameStop shares is nothing but speculation, I can see a scenario where the stock continues to move higher.Undervalued? At the time of writing, it’s trading at a price-to-sales (P/S) multiple of 4. Online retailer Etsy, which has a similar market capitalisation, is trading at a P/S ratio of 10. As such, the GameStop (GME) share price looks cheap.That said, this is only a rough estimate of value. There’s no guarantee GameStop will be able to execute a pivot to online retail successfully.Etsy is already a well-established online retailer with a global presence. GameStop doesn’t have the same recognition among consumers around the world. It may never achieve it. It could be many years before the company’s turnaround even starts to take shape.Therefore, this corporation seems highly speculative to me. If it does manage to execute on its ambitions to become the Amazon of gaming, the stock could be cheap at current levels, and it could keep rising. But if it doesn’t, it looks expensive.With so much uncertainty ahead, I wouldn’t buy the company for my portfolio, despite its best-case-scenario potential.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

first_imgFrom The History ChannelOn this day in 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs into law the Social Security Act. Press photographers snapped pictures as FDR, flanked by ranking members of Congress, signed into law the historic act, which guaranteed an income for the unemployed and retirees. FDR commended Congress for what he considered to be a “patriotic” act.Roosevelt had taken the helm of the country in 1932 in the midst of the Great Depression, the nation’s worst economic crisis. The Social Security Act (SSA) was in keeping with his other “New Deal” programs, including the establishment of the Works Progress Administration and the Civilian Conservation Corps, which attempted to hoist America out of the Great Depression by putting Americans back to work.In his public statement that day, FDR expressed concern for “young people [who] have come to wonder what would be their lot when they came to old age” as well as those who had employment but no job security. Although he acknowledged that “we can never insure one hundred percent of the population against one hundred percent of the hazards and vicissitudes of life,” he hoped the act would prevent senior citizens from ending up impoverished.Although it was initially created to combat unemployment, Social Security now functions primarily as a safety net for retirees and the disabled, and provides death benefits to taxpayer dependents. The Social Security system has remained relatively unchanged since 1935.For more details on this day in history, go here.

first_imgTwitter Advertisement Linkedin AN ASKEATON man played a central role in a sovereign seal ceremony at the Mansion House in Dublin on Monday last. Billy McGuire, President of the Irish Republican Brotherhood, was involved in the annual turning of the sovereign seal to mark the 94th anniversary of the signing of the sovereign constitution on January 21,1919. He explains that the 1919 document was the constitution used by the sovereign government and Dail Eireann courts to divide landlord estates and give the land back to Irish citizens.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Eamonn de Valera did not write the 1937 constitution. He went back to the sovereign constitution and, in his own words, he ‘rejigged it’,” says Mr McGuire.“The 1916 proclamation and the sovereign constitution are the foundation documents of the state The Sovereign Republic of Eire and are owned by the Irish Republican Brotherhood”, he says.Mr McGuire has carried out the turning of the sovereign seal every January for the last 47 years and this year he attempted to bring Hermann van Rompuy, President of the European Council, and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso to the ceremony.However, due to the limited capacity of the ceremony, they were unable to attend and Mr McGuire described this as “an absolute shame”, particularly as both men had wanted to attend.He has called for the 1919 constitution to be put on display in Dublin Castle and says that when Irish people voted for it, it became the uppermost authority in the state.

We will do so with one voice and one vision for Limerick”.Those were the comments of Council chief executive Conn Murray ahead of the merger of Limerick’s local authorities last June.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And his colleagues at the helm of the new council have remained on message about the “branding” of Limerick and their plans to “put people first” at every opportunity ever since.It’s hard not to picture Ricky Gervais’s irritating character David Brent from ‘The Office’ when Iistening to the Council executive’s convoluted “business as usual” supermarket speak.There was no doubt the newly merged local authority would face challenges in the early days. However it is becoming increasingly clear that the amalgamation of the city and county councils was not as well thought out as we were led to believe.Its first full meeting in September ended up a totally farcical affair. With 40 councillors in attendance, they barely scratched the surface of their agenda and a second meeting had to be scheduled after less than 10 per cent of it was covered. With so many hot-winded politicians all trying to get their tuppence worth, this was always going to be an issue if any business was going to be dealt with.County councillors continually complain about having to travel into the city to get their business done since the amalgamation. The so-called “carving up” of the roads, planning and environment departments in Dooradoyle is a constant sore point too.This week Cathaoirleach Kevin Sheahan’s title was changed to Mayor of Limerick City and County, leaving us with two mayors as Cllr Michael Sheahan now holds the title of Mayor of Limerick’s Metropolitan District.This was the Council’s answer to simplifying a confusing situation.You really couldn’t make this stuff up, or could you?As David Brent used to say, “eagles may soar high, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines”.last_img read more

The order will act as a stay on his discharge.
