What do today’s results tell us about the Greggs share price?

first_img Over the past 12 months, the Greggs (LSE: GRG) share price has risen by around 50% as the stock market recovered from the worst of its Covid-related falls.Today’s results have seen the share price rise just under 5% at the time of writing. This was on the back of full-year results showing like-for-like sales down 36.2% versus 2019 and a swing from a £114.8m operating profit to a £7m loss.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 question now is, what next for the Greggs share price?The bull case for the Greggs share priceGreggs is an ideal candidate for a Covid recovery stock, given how much of an impact the lockdown has had on its business. The comparisons next year to this year should be impressive and help the share price rise.Another positive aspect to consider is that Greggs was doing well pre-Covid. When things normalise, it could be reasonably expected that Greggs will once again deliver for shareholders and customers.Also, for now, it has the same leadership team that had grown the share price before the pandemic. The CEO and finance director have been in their posts for a long time and know the business well. I’d back them to get the food-on-the-go retail chain back on track. Although Sky News has reported that Greggs will start looking for a new CEO and Chairman, this isn’t expected to be a quick process and the experienced management team will stay in place to guide it out of the pandemic.Greggs’ products are affordable and were hugely popular pre-pandemic. I feel it’s unlikely to be hurt by consumers cutting back in an economic downturn. The business model should prove resilient whatever comes next, although future lockdowns would be a blow.One upside of shops moving online is that it should give Greggs the ammunition with which to negotiate rents with landlords. That could boost the financial comparison again between this year and next and will reduce costs. Lastly, there’s the strong brand. Greggs’ marketing before the pandemic was a strength, for example the promotion around the launch of vegan sausage rolls. I think even after Covid it will have a strong physical presence, a well known brand and loyal customers. Repeat business is good for revenue and profit growth and is a major positive in my book.The bear caseThere are risks though. One of my big concerns going forward is that there may be permanently fewer office workers, which could dent demand for Greggs’ products from this very important customer group.In its results, the company doesn’t seem to share these concerns though, stating that it will open 100 new outlets in 2021.Digital channels also aren’t as yet anywhere near the scale to offset in-shop sales, so there’s potentially more management must do to strengthen its omnichannel offering. Further rises in staff costs and food ingredient costs could also squeeze margins and delay the bounce-back, which might in turn see the shares slip again.Would I buy the shares?This is one I’ll be keeping my eye on as a Covid recovery opportunity. However, for now I still believe there are other companies that could bounce back stronger.

Does the Guinness Pro14 play-off structure need changing?

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Let us know what you think of the Pro14’s play-off structure by emailing [email protected] Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In the running: Gareth Davies scores one of the Scarlets’ four tries in Glasgow (Huw Evans Agency) This is the first season of the new Guinness Pro14 play-off structure, but is it flawed given the long breaks for the top teams? Falling short: Gloucester were beaten by Wasps in the 2003 Premiership final (Getty Images)With two conferences brought in this season, the Pro14 structure sees the winners of each conference progress straight to the semi-finals while second in one conference plays third in the other.This does make sense, but if that enforced break between matches is adversely affecting those top performers, it needs to be looked at – just as the Premiership had to address the issue more than a decade ago.Obviously, this is not the sole reason Glasgow lost their last-four tie against Scarlets – their form has dipped in the past couple of months and they were outplayed by the Scarlets on Friday night – but a three-week game between matches doesn’t help a team regain their form either. It’s a little different for Leinster given they had the Champions Cup final to play in a week before their fixture against Munster, but if they hadn’t reached that stage of the European competition, would their performance have been affected?Glasgow coach Dave Rennie said they “weren’t looking for excuses” and wouldn’t point the finger at the play-off structure. Yet if something similar happens next season the league’s hand may well be forced. Does the Guinness Pro14 play-off structure need changing? The Scarlets were deserving winners in the first of this season’s Guinness Pro14 semi-finals, their clinical edge in attack resulting in a 28-13 victory over Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun.The home fans may have directed their ire at referee John Lacey but the Warriors’ defence made things easy for the Scarlets at times while the hosts’ willingness to kick ball away also played into the hands of the defending champions. The Scarlets took their chances; Glasgow did not.Yet one thing that may be looked at in closer detail over coming weeks is the fact that Glasgow, who had been the pacesetters in the Pro14 for much of the season, had a three-week break between the last round of the regular season and their semi-final.Long wait: Glasgow Warriors hadn’t played for three weeks before the semi-final (Inpho)Did securing a route direct to the last four actually hinder, rather than help, their chances? Perhaps it isn’t a ‘reward’.Let’s look back to when play-offs were first introduced to determine the winners of the English Premiership. The initial structure in 2002-03 saw the table toppers progress straight to the final, where they faced the winner of a play-off between the second- and third-placed teams.Gloucester had led the way that season but were thrashed 39-3 by Wasps in the final. The Cherry and Whites hadn’t played for three weeks.The same happened the following season: Bath finished top of the table but Wasps beat them in the final. Leicester suffered the same fate in 2005 too.So come the 2005-06 season, the top four teams made the semi-finals – first playing fourth and second playing third – so there was no huge break before the final for the top team.last_img read more

Are there dreams in your life yet to be realized?

first_img UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Or are you dry-rotting?InspirationBy Charles TowneThe other day I stopped by our local Goodwill store and saw something that got my creative juices flowing.  There, in the entryway were two vintage, 26-inch Huffy beach bikes, one for the guys, and one for the gals.  They might have been purchased as Christmas gifts due to their colors.  The gal’s bike was a bright green, and the man’s was fire engine red.Each bike was all decked out with identical accessories: A chrome plated luggage rack over the rear wheel, a cup holder on the right side of the wide handlebars, a small basket over the front tire, and one of those old, big butt bicycle seats.  (I don’t think that is what they really called them.)  I must admit to some nostalgia as I stood there wondering if the folks that purchased them ever used them, and enjoyed them as I am sure was their intent.  My imaginer went a tad berserk as in the somewhat myopic vision of my mind’s eye I saw a young couple laughing as they rode them on Daytona beach, or cruising down their neighborhood street in what was a safer time for bicycles due to fewer cars on the road.Then as I looked closer I noticed dry-rot on the tires which indicated that the bikes had been stored in a garage.   Did the young couple get too busy to enjoy the bikes?  Why were the bikes no longer used?  Perhaps the arrival of children forced them to discard their dreams, or maybe they each got caught up in the workaday world planning to eventually resume their dreams, and the opportune time just never presented itself.Sad, so sad.And then I was forced to ask myself, “Are there dreams yet to be realized in my life?  And if so, what am I doing to make them a reality?”  I can attest to the fact that Time is a tough horse to ride folks.  It can buck you off and stomp on you, even bite you on the behind, but you need to climb back into the saddle and ride baby, ride!  so please, live, laugh, love like there is no tomorrow!  Papa God did not create us to to dry-rot like those old huffy bicycle tires!  Flex your muscles, live life to the fullest, smile and laugh a lot.  Believe me, there is still joy to be realized, adventures to be experienced, and joy unimaginable just around the next corner.Live wholly,Love fully,Love God, and make a difference, today TAGSCharles TowneInspiration Previous articleLiving from glory to glory: The gospel for grown-upsNext articleMake someone’s day: Aspire to inspire Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address!

Chicago activists remember Hampton assassination

first_imgThis year’s International Revolutionary Day, commemorating the 46th anniversary of the martyrdom of Black Panther Party Chairman Fred Hampton by the police, was by far the biggest since Workers World newspaper started covering the event in 2006.Chairman Fred Jr., the son of Comrade Mother Akua Njeri and the martyred revolutionary liberation fighter, opened IRD 2015 at ground zero, the site of the racist, repressive bloodshed, with these words:“December 4th, we acknowledge what happened here, 46 years ago. It was one of our September 11th stories. We say every day in our communities is like a September 11th. And this day, the United States government, they snatched our twin towers, 21-year-old Chairman Fred and 22-year-old Defense Captain Mark Clark.“We out here like clockwork. I was just in a position here where we don’t forget nor forgive. And not to talk about this in some abstract sort of way, but to draw the concrete connections of the rampant police terrorism, in fact, the protocol of police terrorism that we were subjected to even prior to December 4th, 1969. But that case in particular was, in a sense, like bringing the pus out of the sore, heightening the contradictions.“In so many cases, as Malcolm X stated, there’s a façade of freedom, and this system, United States imperialism, is so Machiavellian with its tactics, it puts us in a situation, like Harriet Tubman used to say, where she freed thousands of slaves, and she would’ve freed thousands more if they had only known they were slaves. In so many situations, we dismiss the attacks on our community with euphemisms such as ‘correctional sentence’ and even such as ‘police brutality.’“There can never be a total tally or count of how many of our people have been snatched up, sent to the graveyards or the concentration camps, directly or indirectly, by the state. And this is something we’re going to touch on, about the impacts of imperialism. You know, a lot of the times I speak, people say, ‘here comes Chairman Fred Hampton Jr., he’s always blaming the white man and the government.’” (pauses) “And we do. We do.” (laughter from crowd)‘Power to the people, Black Panthers!’Fred HamptonChairman Fred Jr. and the “Prisoners of Conscience Committee/Black Panther Party Cubs” did an outstanding job of making the event happen. A busload of about 30 young Black men from the New Era organization arrived from Detroit and made a powerful entrance into the memorial.One of the founding members of the Black Disciples organization pledged his allegiance to the POCC/BPPC. Alongside him stood a representative of the Gangster Disciples organization. There was a representative from NCOBRA [The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America], a revolutionary nationalist organization advocating reparations, as well as many other organizations.Revolutionary Black Panther Party veterans spoke about their memories of the party and the terrorist police death squad that carried out Chairman Fred’s assassination under the cover of darkness on the morning of Dec. 4, 1969.Comrade Mother Akua Njeri described in detail the harrowing events of that morning, but she also had fond recollections of that era. She said: “I want to invite all y’all into my home right here. … Y’all call it Chairman Fred Hampton Way now. That’s the name of it. But it was West Monroe then. Chairman Fred sent me out to find a place for us to live that was close to the office. There was an open lot right here. You could walk straight through to the Panther office at 2350 W. Madison. There was a lot with abandoned cars. Homeless people used to congregate in there. Sometimes in that lot, they had little boxing matches and carrying on in there, but you could come through there, and they was like, ‘Power to the people, Black Panthers! Power to the people, Black Panthers!’”Chairman Fred Jr. spoke about his experiences as a political prisoner and the state’s involvement in violence in the Black neocolony. Solidarity statements were read from individuals and organizations from all over North America and from as far away as Venezuela. After a visit to the mural of Chairman Fred Sr. by the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective at The Wall at Madison and California, the program continued at a venue in Bronzeville on the South Side.It is of the utmost importance to support the Black national liberation movement at this crucial time of escalating state and allied fascist violence against the oppressed Black nation, especially the youth.The POCC/BPPC has extended its reach across North America, working with Black Panther Party veterans and revolutionary Black youth from Oakland to Detroit and has made contact with revolutionaries from Venezuela to the Secwepemc nation. Because of this growth, Chairman Fred Jr. and the POCC/BPPC are trying to purchase a building in Chicago so they can open an office. Chairman Fred Jr. has started a GoFundMe account to raise the money. Donations can be made at gofundme.com/blackpanthercubs.Long live Chairman Fred! All power to the people!!

Suspect in assault on New York Lyft driver surrenders: Source

first_imgCourtesy Eduardo Madiedo(NEW YORK) — The suspect in an assault on a Lyft driver in Queens has surrendered to New York City authorities, according to a police source.George Catalano, 36, is charged with reckless endangerment and assault for the incident, which was caught on camera, and is expected to appear in court Thursday afternoon, the source said.Catalano is the alleged passenger in a May 23 video which shows a man repeatedly punching 36-year-old Lyft driver Eduardo Madiedo from the backseat. The passenger then spewed profanities at Madiedo and attempted to climb into the front seat before exiting the car.“I was scared for my life,” Madiedo told ABC New York station WABC.The passenger was accompanied by a woman, and for a majority of the video he is seen lying on her lap. He appears to be in pain and moans loudly multiple times throughout the 12-minute ride.Madiedo said the pair asked him to drive to a hospital in Queens and the man became extremely agitated after traffic prevented him from speeding up.“Oh my god,” the male passenger said before the outburst. “I can’t wait in traffic anymore.”Madiedo was not seriously hurt.Lyft said it has permanently banned the passenger from its platform.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
