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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address Regular Fool readers will hopefully be familiar with the basics of stock picking. Stocks might be picked because they are cheap (value investing), pay more dividends than average (income investing), or are expected to rise in price dramatically (growth investing). Identifying potentially outperforming stocks might involve looking at price-to-earnings ratios and estimates of revenue growth, and comparing dividend yields and profit margins.But there are alternative ways to look at companies, outside the basic investment toolkit, that might yield additional insights. It is, however, important to point out that all metrics are almost useless in isolation. They are useful in judging performance over time or comparing similar companies. Entire industries can be compared with aggregate metrics. When picking stocks, an investor is looking for the best, and the best is only evident in comparison.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…Drilling down on differencesSome novel metrics make sense for looking at any company in any industry. Looking at revenue per employee (RPE) can help measure how productive a company’s workers are. If a company spends millions installing new IT systems, looking at how RPE changes over time can help assess the effectiveness of the upgrade.An investor might want to divide a company’s revenue by its carbon emissions or look at its reported energy intensity. Environmental issues are increasingly important to consumers and regulators. So choosing companies that are becoming more energy-efficient than their peers or moving towards eliminating carbon emissions might be desirable. Getting specificSome metrics are specific to the type of business a company does. Banks make money by charging higher interest rates on loans compared to the interest they pay on deposits. Subtracting interest paid on deposits from income received from loans and dividing this by the total amount of loans made yields net income margin (NIM). A bank would like NIM to be as high as possible.Analysing companies in the hotels business would not be complete without looking at revenue per available room (RevPAR). Average daily rate (ADR) and occupancy rate (OR) are also important and commonly reported by hoteliers. Multiplying ADR and OR together results in RevPAR. Obviously, charging more per night and/or fully booked rooms increases RevPAR. Expect to find substantial differences in RevPAR, ADR, and OR when comparing budget hotel operators against premium hoteliers.Revenue per available seat kilometre (RASK) is important for looking at airline stocks and is calculated by dividing revenue by available seat kilometres (ASM). Multiplying the number of plane seats available by the number of kilometres they fly gives ASM. RASK will differ between budget airlines and flag carriers.Picking winnersThere is no single way to pick winning stocks. However, successful investors seem to strive to really understand the companies they invest in. Diving deep into an analysis of a company will help in understanding its strengths and weaknesses, and how it makes money. I have only scratched the surface here, but using alternative and industry-specific performance metrics should help an investor gain insight into a company.Whatever the metric, noting it is higher or lower for one company versus another is not a reason to invest. Understanding it in terms of a competitive advantage that will persist might be a reason to pick one stock over another.

Recently HSBC (LSE:HSBA) announced that it is paying a dividend again despite the ongoing pandemic. While the bank paying dividends again (albeit a modest initial one) restores some normalcy in my view, I reckon the leading British and Hong Kong bank has other appealing aspects. Here are two big reasons why I think the stock is attractive given the current HSBC share price.AsiaOne reason why I like HSBC at its current share price is because the bank has a strong business in Asia. HSBC operates in 19 markets across Asia that collectively cover 98% of Asia’s total GDP. In many of those markets, the bank has been around for a while and thus it knows the customers and their cultures pretty well.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…I reckon HSBC’s extensive Asian business is a ‘plus’ given that many countries in Asia are growing fairly rapidly as they develop. According to the company, Asia contributed 71% of total global economic growth in 2019 and the area is expected to account for almost half of global GDP by 2025.With the macroeconomic growth in Asia comes potential for HSBC to grow as well. If clients spend more in the region, for example, HSBC could potentially make more in terms of fees. Going forward, gaining more clients could drive growth as well.Biden stimulusAnother reason why I like HSBC at the current share price is due to fiscal policy. Specifically, President Joe Biden recently signed a $1.9trn stimulus bill that many economists think will benefit the US economy meaningfully. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen previously commented on the stimulus package, “I would expect that if this package is passed that we would get back to full employment next year“. The next year in the comment would be 2022, also a year when many expect numerous places around the world to control the pandemic. Janet Yellen might know a thing or two about full employment and how to get the US economy closer to that level given that she was formerly the Chair of the US Federal Reserve.Although HSBC doesn’t make most of its money from the US, the bank nevertheless benefits if the US economy is stronger, in my view. A robust US economy could drive more demand for other countries’ exports and thus help economies around the world. A stronger US economy could also potentially mean faster normalization of interest rates.The HSBC share price: what I’d doHSBC has potential downsides. I reckon the bank could suffer greater than expected loan losses that could hurt its stock price if the pandemic worsens or lasts longer than expected. In the past, management has made some bad M&A deals that have destroyed value. If the bank makes future bad M&A deals, its stock might not do well.Nevertheless, I’d buy and hold HSBC because I reckon it’s a good value investment. At the current HSBC share price, the stock trades at a price-to-book ratio of around 0.7, which I find attractive given the bank’s many competitive advantages and future expected profit growth.

Their move follows the announcement by the Norwegian Government Pension Fund that they are also supporting the resolution, which now has the backing of investment funds managing more than US$8 trillion in total assets.The resolution, co-filed with the New York State Common Retirement Fund, calls on the company to “publish an annual assessment of long term portfolio impacts of public climate change policies.” It says that the assessment “should analyze the impacts on ExxonMobil’s oil and gas reserves and resources under a scenario in which reduction in demand results from carbon restrictions and related rules or commitments adopted by governments consistent with the globally agreed upon two-degree target.”In its supporting statement to shareholders, the proposers of the motion say that ExxonMobil’s assertion that “an artificial capping of carbon-based fuels to levels in the ‘low carbon scenario’ . . . is highly unlikely’” and that it didn’t test its portfolio against a two-degree scenario; was contrary to the position taken by other energy companies. “ExxonMobil’s peers, Shell, B.P., and Statoil have recognized the importance of assessing the impacts of these scenarios by endorsing the ‘Strategic Resilience for 2035 and beyond’ resolutions that received almost unanimous investor support in 2015,” they say.“BHP Billiton now publishes a ‘Climate Change: Portfolio Analysis’ evaluating its assets against two-degree scenarios, and ConocoPhillips states that it stress tests its portfolio against two-degree scenarios. More recently, 10 major oil and gas companies have announced that they will support the implementation of clear stable policy frameworks consistent with a two-degree future.”The target of capping global temperature rises to two degrees Celsius was agreed by world leaders at the U.N.’s COP21 climate change talks in Paris last year.Despite this, the company continues to oppose the motion. They had attempted to remove the resolution from the agenda of the annual shareholders meeting; but the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rejected the move. Now, the company have written to shareholders, urging them to oppose the motion, saying: “ExxonMobil believes that producing our existing hydrocarbon resources is essential to meeting growing global energy demand. We enable consumers – especially those in the least-developed and most-vulnerable economies – to pursue higher living standards and greater economic opportunity.“We believe all economic energy sources will be necessary to meet growing demand, and the transition of the energy system to lower carbon sources will take many decades due to its enormous scale, capital intensity and complexity. As such, we believe that none of our proven hydrocarbon reserves are, or will become, stranded.”Today, it emerged that more than 1,000 professors from 400 universities in 20 countries, under the banner Positive Investment, are urging shareholders in ExxonMobil to pass it, and several other shareholder resolutions on climate change.One member of the group, Natalie Jones, told Varsity newspaper “there is a large amount of financial risk in [the company’s] current strategy due to the so-called ‘carbon bubble’ caused by un-burnable fossil fuel assets”.She argued that it was in the financial interests of investors to back the proposals. “The upcoming votes are a crucial opportunity to set these companies on the right track, and it’s important not to waste this chance,” she said. “Although there are AGMs every year, and shareholders can subsequently improve upon the resolutions which will hopefully be passed this year, the sooner we tackle climate change the better it will be for all of us.”Edward Mason, the Church Commissioners’ head of responsible investment, said: “With declarations of support for this resolution now in from investors with over $8 trillion in assets, and the backing of both main proxy voting advisors, it is clear that our concerns about Exxon’s approach to climate risk are very widely shared.“We hope that this vote will be the moment when shareholders give an unequivocal signal that, following the Paris Agreement, the time for climate risk reporting has arrived.”The resolution will be put before ExxonMobil’s AGM on May 25.

While some provinces set aside a different day for Anglican Communion Sunday, many hold it on the Sunday closest to the feast of Saint Augustine of Canterbury, who was sent by Pope Gregory to evangelize Britain in 595 and who is recognized as the very first archbishop of Canterbury.An international service had been planned to take place in London’s Westminster Abbey, but this has been canceled because of the COVID-19 lockdown in England. The primate of Hong Kong, Archbishop Paul Kwong, is chair of the Anglican Consultative Council. He had been expected to preach at that service but will instead give the sermon in Sunday’s video-based worship service produced by the Anglican Communion Office.That service, which will feature voices and languages from across the Communion, will be available online at anglicancommunion.org/worship from 7 p.m. GMT on May 23. It will be introduced and closed by the secretary general of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon.In addition, Idowu-Fearon will read the New Testament lesson in an audio-based service produced by Westminster Abbey. That service will be available online at westminster-abbey.org/podcast at 8 a.m. GMT on May 24.Anglican Communion Sunday is a day to pray and give thanks for the Anglican Communion and the bonds of affection that bind its member churches.

first_imgMonday Sep 1, 2014 Rugby World Cup 2015 advert featuring rousing team talk from Charles Dance England Rugby 2015 launched the ticketing drive for next year’s Rugby World Cup today with an advert that features actor Charles Dance of Game of Thrones fame. More significantly, it also includes Test players from some of the competing nations. The video features Dylan Hartley, George North and Andrea Masi as well as legends such as Martin Johnson, Serge Betsen and Sir Ian McGeechan mixed in with fans, mascots and referees.It’s directed by Peter Cattaneo of Full Monty fame, and stars Dance, who himself is a big rugby fan.It’s an impressive production, but sadly falls short without any key members of the best three teams in the world included, namely the World Champion All Blacks, the Springboks and the Wallabies. Logisitical reasons no doubt, but Ashley Johnson is there, who last played Test rugby in 2011, so perhaps they could have tracked down someone relevant to wear a black or yellow jersey.Aside from that, there are some fascinating extras included, for example the Millennium Stadium groundsmen, Aston Villa and Leicester City mascots – representing two of the RWC 2015 match venues –  and Great Britain wheelchair rugby player Paul McDerby.The world’s best 20 teams will compete in 48 matches, played at 13 venues up and down England (and Cardiff) with 1 million tickets going on general sale this month.“Tickets are at a range of prices starting at £7 for children and £15 for adults and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the event next year,” said Debbie Jarvis, organising committee CEO. Tickets for RWC 2015 go on general sale Sep 12-29 at tickets.rugbyworldcup.comADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Adverts Related Articles 120 WEEKS AGO Eben Etzebeth ready for battle after long… 122 WEEKS AGO ONE WEEK TO GO: ‘Raise The Stakes’ video… 188 WEEKS AGO Emotive new short film shows Ireland players… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Charles Wilson was baptized in the church building, which was the original Hamilton Cross Roads Church of Christ and, to him, the church and the music are special because of his boyhood attachment to the church. However, his wife, Judy, who grew up in the Methodist church, enjoys the singings and looks forward to them just as much as he does.The acoustics in the one-room church are such that, if there were only a dozen singers, they would sound like a heavenly choir.“And I like singing without a piano or other instruments,” Judy Wilson said. “The harmony of the voices is so pretty and you can hear the words clearer. Many of the songs are familiar and some of them are new and I like learning new songs, too.

I soon realised that we needed to professionalise our training, and in 2004 I recruited a training and development manager. He and I developed a training strategy.I recognised there were a many areas needing attention, particularly management, supervisory development and skills. We pioneered a foundation degree in business and management within the bus industry – it was the first such degree.We identified 30 managers who would be key to the business over the next five years, and we put them through an 18-month to two-year foundation degree programme. Our partners were West Nottinghamshire College and Leeds Metropolitan University, although our heads of functions also give presentations as part of the relevant modules.We also introduced accredited training across the business. For example, something like 400 of our 800 drivers have now completed an NVQ in passenger transport. This year, a further 124 will complete it and another 135 drivers will start it.We’ve also introduced training into other areas, such as catering and cleaning. We’ve really tried to professionalise the whole function. We’ve also introduced a formal system of performance management reviews, which we’ve cascaded through the business. We’re also developing, on the back of these appraisals, a portfolio of short courses. Because we’re now hugely involved in the certificate of professional competence (CPC) that drivers have to have in addition to their PCV licence, all of our drivers have to have a minimum of 35 hours off-the-job training every five years. We’ve put about 800 drivers through a customerservice training module this year. Training-wise, we’re pretty much self-sufficient, and most of the training that we deliver is in-house. We have seconded drivers who deliver most of the professional training. We’ve also got mentors, and IT gurus in every department. Yet while the amount of training has gone up, the cost per head of training has dropped. We assess everything we do. On the CPC training, for instance, we get a consistent 9.4 out of 10 for relevance to the job, and 9.6 for presentation. The changes in behaviour and culture are tangible, not least in the breaking down of barriers between functions. Comments are closed.
