Europages – a leading paneuropean directory

Europages is a leading online directory that caters for the European business community, the company behind the site is called Visable which is a pretty good name for a business seeking to improve the visibility of companies on the internet.

They claim to have 2.4million buyers per month across 15 languages and receive around 3,000 business listing per month. The idea is simply you create a listing in your home country and the site and its team translates that and uses it across 15 other sites which are all in the language of their target audience.

If you are promoting a site online then links from reputables places help to boost your online rankings so have links from 15 good sites is therefore more helpeful than just a single one.

Anyway I tried their service our this week, and it does seem pretty impressive, here are our listings, lets see how many enquiries we get and if these all or indeed any of them get picked up and indexed by the various search engines.

Europages UK – Our own UK market place, this version is focussed onto the UK

Europages CZ – Their Czech site

Europages DK – The Danish version

Europages DE – Targetting the German speaking world, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Europages.org – Estonian

Europages FR – French site

Europages LT – Latvian Site

Europages LI – Lithuanian Site

Europages SE – Swedish orientated directory

Europages IT – Italian version of their site

Europages HU – Hungarian site

Europages ES – Spanish version

Business contacts within the European realm are thriving – and more and more medium-sized companies are leveraging this chance to go global. EUROPAGES can be their sales hub! The uncomplicated user navigation enables suppliers to create a strong company profile in no time at all and collect buyer contacts from all over the world.

Our language service package includes up to 15 different languages. Your text is edited by our experts and professionally translated into all your desired languages.

Offer your products internationally with a presence on the 26 EUROPAGES versions. Your company profile appears to everyone searching on Google and is at the top of the search results – regardless of which language your potential customers are using.

The concept is a good one and of course they have registered the relevent domain name in each of the European markets they operate in, so there is good chance this works reasonable well.

Back in the day, Google hit directories hard, but the ones they targetted were little more than a list of links, whereas Europages seems to be much better than this.

Leveraging music sites to your benefit

We recently launched a range of podcasts and whilst exploring ways to get them “out there” I came across the usual podcast directories and hosting platforms but also the range of music sites.  I’ve never previously considered using these to get traction or engagement to any of my own sites, and probably like everyone else just listen to my fav music from my youth!

Anyway I am trying them out, as I’ve discovered they are podcast friendly as well as being fun places to hang out.

So here are the sites I’ve tried so far

SoundCloud this was probably the one I was most familar with.

Here is my soundcloud and as you can see I’ve uploaded a selection of my podcasts and we’ll see what sort of traction they get, I’ve picked up a few followers at least if nothing else.

Next is MixCloud

Mixcloud is similar to soundcloud a frustrating thing is they auto-delete short sound files which makes it tricky.  So I am recording some longer ones in an attempt to get one to stick!

Bandcamp is my last one for now.

They also seem to have an issue with my tracks this time because they are very specific about the audio file format, so far only one of my podcasts has gotten live and the others say “no audio”

https://adrianlawrence.bandcamp.com/

I am working on these issue and will update you all with progress.

Worldwide Healthcare Trust

Worldwide Healthcare Trust

The US Department of Health and Human Services appears to be suffering from something terribly sinister, with its former chief medical officer, Dr. Kathleen Sebelius, being retired after denying allegations of sexual impropriety. The US government’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG), which is forcing the former head of health care at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health care providers to retire after denying allegations of inappropriate sexual contact with female staff at their hospitals, seems to be suffering from something horribly sinister. [Sources: 2]

Shares in Worldwide Healthcare Trust are currently trading at 37791p, 11.42% above the 200-day moving average, and have been above that level for more than a year, giving the company a market capitalisation of PS2.35bn. We’ve measured that over the last few years, so hopefully that confidence will contribute to the long-term outperformance. [Sources: 4, 6]

Worldwide Healthcare Trust paid a total dividend of 0.25% last year and currently has a dividend yield of 4.5%. For the coming financial year, Worldwide Healthcare Trust has not yet announced a dividend cut-off date, but has announced a dividend cut-off date of 1.15%. The next dividend – which will no longer be paid – is scheduled for 2021 / 01 / 11 and is due to be paid on or before the end of the first quarter of 2019. [Sources: 4]

When it comes to shares in the Worldwide Healthcare Trust, it is worth taking a look at its price performance. Price trends tend to continue and, on a monthly or quarterly basis, the price-earnings ratio is therefore expected to increase by around 2.5%. Moreover, the average annual dividend yield of 1.15% over the past five years has exceeded the market average of 0.25%. The price of the Worldwide Healthcare Trust has ranged between 42% and 76% over this period in terms of relative price strength, which takes into account the general market trend. [Sources: 4, 6]

To buy shares in the Worldwide Healthcare Trust, you need an account that trades shares. It can also be used as an investment vehicle for a range of different investment strategies, such as direct borrowing. Borho recently stated that he is willing to run 10% to 20% of the time, and Worldwide Healthcare can adjust to up to – up to 20% through direct loans. [Sources: 4, 6]

The World Financial Group (WFG) consists of agents who, when properly licensed and appointed, offer life insurance and other fixed income products to agents. It is managed by OrbiMed, one of the world’s largest private health insurers with offices in Brazil, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and the United States. At the end of last year, the company had more than $13 billion in assets under management, making it the third-largest insurance company in the United States, behind only JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. [Sources: 0, 5, 6]

The Worldwide Healthcare Trust is considered one of the best investment funds in the world since its inception in April 1995. So there are three biotechnology and health companies that we hold, but they are relatively small positions, although we expect to add them all in the next few years. We are also reassured by our two UK investments, which we are trusting and reassuring for our other investments in Europe and the Middle East. In addition to participating in a number of private health insurance companies, including OrbiMed, we have also invested in Worldwide Healthcare, a private insurance company with offices in Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. [Sources: 6]

In a speech by Borho, which was very nice to hear, he called Worldwide Healthcare the flagship of the Fund of Best Ideas. Frostrow now heads the Emerging Health Products Fund of the Worldwide Health Care Trust. Governments and nonprofits around the world have invested billions in vaccine development to respond to the public-health crisis. [Sources: 1, 6]

Even the UK Government is stepping in and pumping an extra £20 billion a year into the NHS. But before it pumps another £30billion or even more of its own money into this Bill, it must stay out of it. [Sources: 2]

To be even more choosy, I think HgCapital Trust has crept forward despite claims by Worldwide Healthcare a few months ago that it had built up net assets of around 1.5 billion pesos (7.4 billion pesos at the time of publication). In fact, it usually trades at a much lower price-to-earnings ratio than its peers in 2017, and generally seems to pay less than half what it received in its first year of trading. [Sources: 6]

The Trust invests in the global healthcare sector to achieve high capital growth. The Trust has invested in a wide range of healthcare companies, from private equity to private hospitals and private health insurance. [Sources: 3]

In the search for new medicines, we are among the leading companies investing in research and development worldwide. Worldwide Healthcare particularly values the prospects for Chinese companies, and unprofitable biotech firms, especially now, are eligible to enter the market. [Sources: 6, 7]

Saga Plc

Saga plc the company that caters for customers over 50 has been in the news again this week.  They operate through three divisions, Insurance, travel and Emerging businesses.

Their travel business consists of the operation and delivery of package tours, escorted tours, river cruise and ocean cruise. The Company owns and operates two cruise ships. All other holiday products are packaged together with third party supplied accommodation, flights and other transport arrangements, so they provide everything you need in the same way that most package deal operators do

Saga plc has been very badly impacted by the Covid pandemic and has had to suspend the operation of its cruise ships.  During 2020 it raised fresh money via the London stock exchange to help it keep going / afloat !

Anyway this week it has announced that it will be compulsory to have a covid vaccination if you want to book and travel on its cruise ships.  Their share price has responding by bouncing nearly 20% at one point.

So the market clearly believes this is a way to restore trading and profitability in a reliable way.  Also the press is full of stories of holiday bookings jumping 250% (not for Saga more the travel industry in general)

It is good to think that pensioners can get out of this lockdown as they have really suffered with all the isolation.

You can read more about Saga plc on our sister site reporting accounts.

Bankers Investment Trust

Bankers Investment Trust

When it comes to retirement planning, you want to do more than just hope to make the right decisions. I think the financial services division of BTC is a relationship – focused, hard-working to listen to your retirement savings goals and understand your risk tolerance and individual needs. When I worked with them, I found that they focused on relationships because they worked hard to listen to my retirement goals and understand my investment and risk tolerances, as well as my individuals “needs. [Sources: 4]

Investment bankers play a role in organising the sale of shares and the financing of investments. They also help customers who prefer to raise capital through private equity, private debt and other forms of capital market financing, as well as through public equity. [Sources: 5]

In such cases, investment bankers are expected to have the contacts and credibility to enforce the sale. They are deal makers and have an advisory role in the process to get a fair price for the deal. In some cases, they don’t take risks to take on emissions rights, but simply act as a cheer – and market the deals. Hiring an investment banker is the first business they do, and if they forget what to do, they risk being forgotten. [Sources: 5]

If stocks are undervalued, they leave money on the table that could have been made for the customer or if the share price falls below the market price. [Sources: 5]

Investing in AIM penny shares carries increased risk as it is difficult to create a market for these shares. The value of your investment may rise or fall and you may receive less return than you might have received by investing in a stock with a higher or lower price. [Sources: 0, 3]

In mergers and acquisitions, investment bankers can evaluate a range of offers and make counter-offers. A conflict of interest may arise when an investment banker who has confidential information about business prospects passes that information on to traders in another company. Capital markets such as the stock market, investment funds and private equity carry a high risk and can quickly lose value. [Sources: 3, 5]

In some cases, an investment banker can sell securities and receive commissions for the number he sells. For example, a company could sell an entire bond offering, but in that case investment bankers could receive a percentage of the total number of securities they sell. [Sources: 5]

This could indicate that Bankers Investment Trust is leading the way in its sector when it comes to responsible management strategies and is less exposed to risk. This would suggest that its shares are less volatile than the average on the stock market, and it could be suggested that it is exposed to lower risk than other companies in the investment banking sector. It could indicate that the banker’s investment trust has been a leader in its sector in terms of responsibility and risk management, particularly when it comes to taking its workforce to a new level in terms of portfolio management strategy and risk. This may indicate that they have been leaders in their sectors in terms of responsibility and risk, particularly in developing responsible management strategies, and have been exposed to higher risks than others in their sector, such as other investment banks. [Sources: 0]

In terms of total return on investment, you will experience some short-term performance difficulties, but in the long run you will probably increase your wealth. In the longer term, the lights will not shrill, and you will not be shouted at by the light. That is what we are likely to find, a point supported only by three managers who have been at the helm for the last 47 years, all of whom are in their mid-40s. [Sources: 2]

Confidence has consistently outperformed the FTSE All-Share Index in terms of total return on investment over the past three years. NAV and total returns for BNKR were slightly above the index, but below average. The pound’s recent strength has hit absolute performance as the market has begun to assess the impact of Brexit on the value of the pound against the US dollar and euro, while the weak pound has pushed up returns on non-pound investments. [Sources: 1, 2]

While Crooke said its regional portfolio managers still saw opportunities in the sector, lower yields and quantitative easing have continued to put pressure on banks. He added: “Low valuations of banks are likely to have hurt investor sentiment in recent years, particularly in relation to the UK economy and banking sector. [Sources: 1]

Valuing the shares of the Bankers Investment Trust is incredibly difficult and each of these indicators must be viewed in the context of the wider financial markets and the wider financial sector. The Bank Investment Consultant has based its ranking of the Top 100 Bank Advisors on six variables and summarised them into a weighted average. [Sources: 0, 4]

The Bankers Investment Trust is responsible for measuring the performance of its portfolio in relation to the wider financial sector. The portfolio is managed on a regional basis by Crooke, which manages a portfolio of stocks selected with a broad bias towards value and yield. He added: “Generally speaking, I set up the portfolio in a way that divides the income of the companies that hold the trust between emerging markets and Europe, as well as the US and Asia-Pacific regions. Among the three factors used to measure the performance of the banker’s investment trust relative to the rest of the UK financial market are its commitment to corporate social responsibility (known as ESG) and its environmental investments.

Morrison (Wm) Supermarkets

Morrison (Wm) Supermarkets

Morrison Supermarkets PLC is the Yorkshire-based grocery retailer operating in the UK, with Morrisons being the largest supermarket chain in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Owned by the British, who own the world’s largest food chain, as well as a number of other retail and restaurant businesses. [Sources: 4, 6]

The company was founded in 1899 by William Morrison, who started the business under the name Wm Morrison Limited. During Morrison’s lifetime, the business remained a small Bradford-focused business, and the company’s warehouse was in the garage of the family home. [Sources: 1, 4]

By the late 1970s, the company had established itself as one of the UK’s largest and most successful supermarket chains, but its focus remained on the north of England. While Wal-Mart’s entry into the UK promised to force the closure of many of its regional stores, Morrison was the last remaining regional player in a market that is now wholly dominated by national supermarket groups. These competitors led to the consolidation of the industry and created a wave of acquisitions and acquisitions. Five sites were sold to BP, while Morrison sold the rest of its sites to Somerfield and Tesco, which both continued to operate markets and sectors (the Somersfield branches were later renamed Co-operative Food). [Sources: 1, 4]

Since 2004, Morrisons stores have been concentrated mainly in the north of England, but the company’s presence has increased significantly in other parts of the country, such as the South East, South West and North West. The new stores are among more than 100 identified by Morrison to expand into smaller supermarkets, aiming to have a store within 15 minutes of every UK home. The stores have a Market Street concept, with specialty stores including fishmongers and butchers, pizza and baked goods, and “American shops” selling donuts and hot dogs, offering Morrisons largely suburban customers a shopping experience on the High Street. Morrison also sells Safeway, which continues to trade under its brand name and sells products from chains such as Asda and Iceland. [Sources: 1, 4, 5]

The winery’s cellar door is located in the heart of Morrison, Illinois, just a short drive from downtown. William Morrison was founded in 1899 as William Morrisons Provisions Ltd., and began his career selling eggs and butter wholesale. [Sources: 4, 6]

Morrison’s business flourished, allowing him to open his own counter service business in the early 1920s. As Morrisons kept opening new stores, he began taking over other stores. Its market share declined after the purchase of Safeway, but grew again after store sales and conversions. After the takeover, the company issued five profit warnings, and some felt that the original format, Morrisons Northern, was not working as well as its southern European counterpart. [Sources: 2, 4]
