Alan Oscroft | Sunday, 12th January, 2020 | More on: SXX See all posts by Alan Oscroft After the failure to get its funding round off the ground and the collapse of its share price, Sirius Minerals (LSE: SXX) became one of my worst ever stock investments – it might even be the actual worst, but I don’t keep such records.I have, thankfully, suffered very few wipeouts over the years I’ve been investing, because I only very rarely take on risky investments like this, and whenever I have done it’s always been relatively small amounts of money.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…BuyoutAnyway, I haven’t got round to disposing of the shares yet, and I really wasn’t expecting to read headlines like ‘The Sirius Minerals share price is up 35%’. The company is in talks with Anglo American regarding a possible takeover offer. If talks go well, Sirius management can see themselves as recommending the offer, though there’s nothing certain yet.The takeover price being talked about at the moment is 5.5p per share, though as an immediate result of the news the shares spiked as high as 5.7p. Why would people pay more on the open market than they’d get from the initial Anglo offer? Presumably there are some optimists out there who hope the negotiations will result in a higher offer, or that a second bidder might enter the fray.MisplacedUnfortunately, I think such optimism is misplaced, as whoever (if anyone) takes over Sirius assets will have to find a further $3bn or so to develop the project as far as production. To be honest, I think we’re lucky to get anything back – and it provides me with a minor reward for procrastinating for so long and not having dumped the shares yet.There are two things that really do please me about the latest development. One is that it looks like all of the efforts put in to date will not be wasted after all (fingers crossed, don’t want to tempt fate before there’s ink on paper).But even more, the prospects for a significant number of jobs in an area that could certainly use them has considerably improved – that deprivation would have been much worse than my fairly minor loss of cash.Now what?But what will I do, both with my Sirius Minerals shares and with my future investments in an effort to avoid a similar disaster in the future? The first question is easy to answer, and I’ll just hang on to them and see how the Anglo American thing turns out. If it results in a recommended and accepted offer, it should result in my shares being sold with no effort on my part.What about how to avoid making a similar mistake in the future? Well, the bulk of my investing in recent years has been in safe dividend-paying stocks, with only the occasional foray into smaller growth candidates. And I’m going to keep it that way.I might be a boring old man these days, but what if if I see another prospect similar to Sirius Minerals in the future? A bit of high-risk excitement can make me feel young again, so I may well go for it. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Alan Oscroft owns shares of Sirius Minerals.

Is the FTSE 100’s BP now an unmissable bargain share?

first_imgIs the FTSE 100’s BP now an unmissable bargain share? With the share price at around 299p, oil giant BP (LSE: BP) is below the 18-year low around 305p it hit in 2010. Back then, it took the oil-spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico to sink the stock. This time, it’s the Covid-19 pandemic and the collapse of demand for oil. Is BP now an unmissable bargain share?Why BP could be a brilliant bargain shareYesterday’s half-year results report contained some dire figures. But the prominent one for me related to the directors’ decision on the shareholder dividend. They cut the second-quarter dividend in half compared to the previous quarter. And that’s to be the new normal. BP has reset the ongoing quarterly dividend to 5.25 cents per share per quarter.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…There’s no sugaring the pill. The directors’ decisions about dividends in any company speak volumes about their views on current trading and the outlook. By that measure, things are probably around half as good as they used to be for BP. The company faces a new set of challenges. And the main one is that the oil business isn’t as lucrative as it once was. The future is uncertain and BP wants to change course.Chief executive Bernard Looney explained in the report the poor trading results were caused by a challenging quarter and the “deliberate steps” being taken to “reimagine energy and reinvent BP”. Looking ahead though, the company plans to return at least 60% of surplus cash to shareholders through share buybacks. But that will only happen after the balance sheet has been “deleveraged”.  I reckon the resetting of the dividend is a good base for the company to build its plans upon. I’m tempted to buy some of the shares now to hold as BP executes its transformation plans in the years ahead.Exciting plans to transform the businessIn a separate announcement yesterday, BP explained it aims to reshape its business. The plan is to transition from being an international oil company to an integrated energy one, focused on delivering solutions for customers. This is big news. In a world pushing for low-carbon energy solutions, it seems that BP sees the writing on the wall for its traditional oil business.The firm has set out its vision saying it aims to increase annual low-carbon investment 10-fold to around $5bn a year “within 10 years”. The plan is to invest in renewables, bioenergy, hydrogen and Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage (CCUS). By 2030, BP aims to have developed around 50GW of net renewable generating capacity. And that works out at a 20-fold increase from 2019.The directors reckon ‘ oil & gas production will reduce over that 10-year period by around 40% from the level achieved in 2019. By then, they expect the remaining hydrocarbon portfolio to be more cost and carbon “resilient”. To me, this is exciting change to look forward to. And I’d buy some of the shares now and hold for the ride. While I’m waiting, with the shares at 299p, the ongoing dividend is yielding just over 5%. Enter Your Email Address Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Rokita Blasts EPA Activism

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Aug 14, 2015 Home Indiana Agriculture News Rokita Blasts EPA Activism Rokita on EPAAt Shop Talk Tuesday night, presented by the Indiana Corn Growers Association and Indiana Soybean Alliance, 4th District Indiana Congressman Todd Rokita didn’t mince words when talking about the Environmental Protection Agency. The first event in the series was held at the Mike Beard farm near Frankfort. Rokita was one of the guest speakers and the first question from the audience concerned the EPA, whose workers triggered the release of a million gallons of wastewater into a Colorado river last week. Rokita is confident that Congress will hold hearings.“But ultimately this is about leadership,” he told those gathered in Clinton County. “You have activists in that agency who don’t understand or don’t care to understand the businesses and industries over which they regulate.”Rokita told HAT the Waters of the U.S. rule that agriculture is trying to get withdrawn is flat out wrong.“It is wrong for the activist EPA to just so distort the plain meaning of a term, navigable water, to somehow include an irrigation ditch or even a pond that occurs after a heavy rainfall. It’s just beyond comprehension so that’s a reason to fight, to fight against the stupidity of again an activist agency.”Rokita co-sponsored H.R.1732, the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act of 2015, which has moved to the Senate.“It’s a good bill. It repeals EPA’s authority in this regard and rescinds their definition of navigable water to something that makes sense and is appreciated by common sense people. The attention needs to be turned on the Senate to keep that fight going, and let’s get this on the President’s desk. Let’s have every American see how silly this EPA is, especially in light of the damage they’ve done out west now in that river.”As the Aug. 28 implementation date approaches for the EPA’s final rule on WOTUS the National Corn Growers Association has demanded the EPA postpone implementing its controversial rule and strongly supports congressional efforts to rescind the rule.The need for this action became all the more clear with the release of highly critical internal memos from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers related to the rule.More Shop Talks are scheduled with Indiana legislators, and HAT will have details Monday.

Why psychological safety at work should be a board-level issue

first_imgWhy psychological safety at work should be a board-level issueBy Hamish Moore on 3 Oct 2017 in Personnel Today what does it mean for you?;thinking differently;actions and behaviours; andimplementation.We have recently implemented this model at Barts Health NHS Trust – the UK’s largest trust – which employs more than 16,000 staff across East London.We collected evidence using Wellbeing Works’ predictive diagnostic tool, Wbi, which allows you to see the extent of any psychosocial factors that could be affecting your employees’ psychological safety.Data is also available on the number of staff who are struggling to cope with work volume, pace, change or who have difficulty concentrating or focusing, or who do not feel valued by their manager. The tool can highlight the risk and costs of future absence or disengagement levels.At Barts Health NHS Trust, staff reported high levels of stress and burnout, low levels of autonomy and poor levels of recognition by managers of value and workload. So we identified significant opportunities for improving the psychological safety. We integrated this information with general data from other sources, such as staff surveys, and with this we were able to show the trust the causes, source and scale of the issues.After this, managers were then trained by us in psychological safety and we created a framework to implement changes in a planned and organised way. The framework included factors such as:creating openness to challenge;providing supportive dialogue;equity of work distribution;providing valued feedback;creating a sense of belonging; andrecognition of accomplishment.The initial evaluation after four months following training showed that 16 staff survey scores had improved and 41 had stabilised. Qualitative reports we gained from employees were positive, with comments including: “There is a lot more focus on resolving problems”, and “It’s a much better place to work.”At its heart, psychological safety is about whether or not staff believe or feel they are treated in a manner that recognises their rights and needs, and if these are accommodated to a reasonable degree.In psychologically safe workplaces, managers adopt styles of behaviour and working methods that ensure individuals are able to take interpersonal risks. For example: staff are able to constructively raise challenges to the way of working without fear of retribution; they find that asking for help or guidance is met with a positive response; challenging questionable practices is valued, not demonised; and being different is respected not undermined or ridiculed.In many organisations, psychological safety should be a board-level item and many organisations need to start recognising its importance and value for staff wellbeing.Hamish Moore is Wellbeing Works’ chief executive and company founder. Related posts: One Response to Why psychological safety at work should be a board-level issue The concept of psychological safety is gaining ground among employers. Hamish Moore, founder of Wellbeing Works, discusses what the idea means and its benefits to organisations.Psychological safety is the mental health equivalent of a physically safe workplace. Ensuring the psychological safety of employees is a pre-requisite for the promotion of health and wellbeing at work. For organisations that face significant absence levels, adopting psychological safety is one of the key methods of helping them to reduce absence.More on employee wellbeingGood practice on employee wellbeingEmployee wellbeing policyStress management good practiceWhen staff are psychologically well, it means that they are able to think, feel and behave in a manner that enables them to perform effectively. Psychological safety is a significant contributor to performance, engagement and attendance.Recently, Wellbeing Works was commissioned to pioneer our psychological safety programme in the UK by a range of organisations including Bart’s Health NHS Trust, the University of Cumbria, several police authorities and NHS trusts, and a major UK insurance company.We have been working alongside these organisations with their leaders and managers to create “psychologically safe workplaces”. Psychologically safe workplaces are those where the psychological wellbeing of employees is a priority for managers and leaders, and they actively create work environments that avert harm or danger to the psychological health of staff.The topic is a relatively new one for those in the health and safety profession in the UK, but one that we at Wellbeing Works believe should be of paramount importance. Interestingly, Schein and Bennis (1965) identified the idea of work environments needing to be a “safe place” in their book Personal and Organizational Change.However, interest didn’t start at an academic level until the 1990s, when Amy Edmondson of Harvard University identified it as a key concern for organisations in her essay, “Psychological safety and learning behavior in work team.”Edmondson “introduces the construct of team psychological safety – a shared belief held by members of a team that the team is safe for interpersonal risk taking – and models the effects of team psychological safety and team efficacy together on learning and performance in organisational work teams.”Interest in the importance of psychological safety has subsequently increased over the years on an international scale.Australia and Canada have legislation that requires employers to provide safe places to work – this includes a psychological dimension. Employees who suffer psychological harm in their workplace are able to obtain compensation far more easily than they currently would in the UK.For many organisations, 40-45% of reported absence is attributable to psycho-social factors (worry, anxiety, stress and depression). Insightful employers create an environment that takes positive action before these factors lead to absence. Results seen by Wellbeing Works include higher engagement levels, lower labour turnover and lower absenteeism.We have created a model for the “psychological safety journey”, which we believe can be implemented within organisations to improve psychological safety and see improvements in absence levels and engagement. There are four stages to our method:Wellbeing WorksWellbeing Works is a performance, engagement and wellbeing consultancy firm, specialising in creating work environments that enable people to thrive. It uses driven analysis and evidence-based solutions to help organisations achieve optimal performance by improving their employees’ wellbeing.

Quinn Family donates $5 million for Innovation Park

first_imgThe Quinn family made a $5 million donation to the University to fund the second phase of construction of Innovation Park, according to a Monday press release. The donation was made by the late 1969 Notre Dame alumnus, Thomas Quinn and his wife, Diane, according to the release. “Tom was a tremendous supporter of Notre Dame with his time, talent and treasure,” Fr. John Jenkins, University President, said in the release. “This new and extraordinary gift makes it possible for us to continue to build upon the success of the first phase of Innovation Park. We are most grateful.”According to the release, construction on the the Thomas H. and Diane G. Quinn Hall for Innovation and Change is expected to begin later this fall or early winter. The Hall will be a 40,000-square-foot, three-level facility located across the street from the University. Thomas G. Burish, Charles and Jill Fischer Provost of the University, said he joins Fr. Jenkins in thanking the Quinns for their donation.“Over the past seven years at Innovation Park, we have seen a wide range of marketable business ideas emanating from faculty and student research,” Burish said in the release. “Phase II of the park is a major step forward for the University — and for the community as a whole, as we continue to collaborate with the city on initiatives that begin at Notre Dame and continue at Ignition Park in South Bend.”According to the release, since Innovation Park’s opening in 2009, 59 new ventures have launched at the park, 29 companies are currently operational on the grounds, 38 Notre Dame faculty members are working there and 67 Notre Dame student interns are employed by various groups.The Quinns’ donations have also contributed to the creation of the Quinn MBA China Immersion Program, the renovation of the Morris Inn and support for the Business on the Front Lines initiative in the Mendoza College of Business and the President’s Circle, according to the release.

Caribbean Travel Destinations

first_img Share Share LifestyleTravel Caribbean Travel Destinations by: – February 15, 2011 Share Courtesy:  Destinations 360The swaying rhythm of the islands, the blinding white sand, palm trees in the trade winds, the Caribbean calls even the hardest hearts to its shores. There are hundreds of islands in the sea simply waiting to let you in on their secrets – their heady combination of sun and European colonialism makes Caribbean travel destinations some of the most popular in the whole world. And since every island offers a unique experience, the top 10 Caribbean destinations are difficult to nail down. But let’s try.JamaicaThe most popular and well known of the many Caribbean travel destinations, this is the place to go if you are on a budget and don’t want to do a lot of island hopping, or looking for generous resorts and the most traditional of Caribbean vacations.CuracaoThough Aruba is easily the most popular of the Caribbean travel destinations to the south, its eastern neighbor might make for a better vacation. More in tune with its Dutch heritage, the combination of a slower pace of life with better water sport options, Curacao is definitely near the head of the top 10 Caribbean destinations list.St. Martin/St. MaartenThe island with two names (one for the French side and one for its Dutch counterpart) gives you access to two distinctive, but equally charming cultures. The main difference is the superiority of food in St. Martin and the better nightlife in St. Maarten. But it’s not like the island is very large, you can easily get your fill of both sides on a short trip.St. Bart’sEverything in the Caribbean screams upscale, but none louder than here. This is definitely not one of the best Caribbean destinations if you are on a strict budget, but St. Bart’s is the Hollywood of the Gulf of Mexico, where the rich and beautiful go to play in the surf and sand.GuadeloupeThanks to Caribbean airlines, the ability to island hop is a breeze, so if you’ll have no excuse for missing one of the best Caribbean destinations in Guadeloupe. A nice mix of urbanization and unkempt banana groves, like all good Caribbean islands, Guadeloupe boasts excellent rum, some of the best dive sites imaginable, and a rough look into Creole culture and food.DominicaAnyone who has seen Pirates of the Caribbean knows the rich natural beauty of the island of Dominica – it’s where all three movies were filmed. This island is all forests and waterfalls, not to mention: monkeys. If you love getting back into the wilderness, this is definitely one of the top 10 Caribbean destinations.TrinidadIf you can swing by this island during the yearly festival of Carnival, you will be greeted with one of the world’s biggest parties – a swirling, interminable mix of rum, dancing and costumed celebration, Trinidad’s revelry is bested only by Brazil’s. The rest of the year finds Trinidad a worthy Caribbean travel destination, as it is the most strongly influenced by South America, giving it a distinctively regional feel that is wholly unique.AnguillaAnother island that haphazardly swings between strikingly rural areas and upscale resorts depending on which street you turn down, the lazy British-influenced vibe that resounds through Anguilla is better felt than described. The fastest growing of any of the region’s islands, it’s clearly no secret that Anguilla is one of the best Caribbean destinations.CubaThe forbidden island, as in the U.S. forbids you to get there from its soil. Hurdle this obstacle, though, and you will find a refreshing country that has, for the time being, remained relatively untouched by the world around it. Whether they can stave off globalization forever is yet to be seen, but whether you are hitting the famed dance clubs or dropping back mojitos, Cuba is easily one of the best Caribbean travel destinations.St. LuciaLike Dominica, St. Lucia stands out amongst Caribbean travel destinations due to its dedication to industries other than tourism. Hiking and diving are big draws here, and its white-sand beaches are on par with anything else in the Gulf of Mexico.center_img Sharing is caring! 141 Views   no discussions Tweetlast_img read more
