FSA probes hit record high

first_imgThursday 10 March 2011 8:31 pm whatsapp FINANCIAL services firms are being forced to investigate a record number of Financial Services Authority probes, according to a report from the regulator yesterday.The FSA ordered 140 firms to undergo investigations called “skilled persons reports” in the past year to shed light on potential problems with internal processes. The number of reports, conducted by auditors and paid for by the company, was 60 per cent higher than in 2009. Finance firms said the industry was concerned the reports “outsourced” regulation and were unfair.

Here’s what I’d do now G A Chester has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco. 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. The Ocado (LSE: OCDO) share price has been absolutely flying this year. Last month, it reached a new all-time high of 2,895p — up 128% since the start of the year.However, currently at 2,313p, it’s 20% off the high. Could this be a great dip-buy opportunity? Here’s what I’d do now.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 rise and rise of the Ocado share priceOcado divided analysts on its flotation at 180p a share in 2010. Founded 10 years earlier, it had never made a profit. Today, analysts are as divided as ever.According to the Financial Times, six are positive on the stock, six negative, and six neutral. Meanwhile, profit forecasts on Ocado’s corporate website show how extreme the division is between the most bullish and bearish analysts.For the current year, the highest forecast is a pre-tax loss of £119m, and the lowest, a loss of £265m (a £146m difference). And the gap becomes even wider for 2021. Forecasts show a best-case loss of £102m and a worst-case loss of £280m (a £178m difference).Despite years of cash burn, the perennial presence of bearish analysts, and periods of heavy short-selling by hedge funds, the market has pushed the Ocado share price up and up. Indeed, at its recent all-time high, with a capitalisation near to £22bn, the market was rating it a more valuable business than Tesco.A technology businessOcado’s share of the UK grocery market is just 1.8%, and it’s taken two decades to achieve it. Even its most bullish supporters acknowledge a market-cap similar to Tesco makes no sense, if it’s valued simply as a grocer. After all, its retail EBITDA last year was just £35m, compared with Tesco’s £4.7bn.No, the bull case is that Ocado is a technology company, and is better compared with highly-rated Software as a Service (SaaS) firms. Its UK solutions arm posted EBITDA of £85m last year. That may still be underwhelming, but bulls argue a pipeline of some 200 Customer Fulfilment Centres (CFCs) in its international solutions division means the sky’s the limit for Ocado’s share price.Bear caseAnalysts in the bear camp, such as Barclays, suggest “there are numerous competitors… and it is not certain Ocado’s solution will prove the most widely adopted.” Its model has also come under negative scrutiny by analysts at HSBC and Credit Suisse.Furthermore, bears point out that sooner or later the market will start to care about conventional valuation measures like price-to-earnings and price-to-free cash flow. Barclays argues that while Ocado’s business model has some similarities with SaaS firms, “the crucial difference is Ocado’s much greater capital intensity; ultimately Ocado builds things as much as it writes code. We think this will limit its ability to claim a SaaS-style rating.”What I’d do about the Ocado share priceInvestors have chased growth and share-price momentum at any cost in recent years. Even after the recent dip in its share price, I think Ocado will have to deliver heroically to justify it.I share the bears’ concerns about competition and other risks, as well as their doubts about a SaaS-style rating. As such, I’m inclined to avoid the stock. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

They say that writers write, and that’s what we’ve been doing.This is the 7,000th article we have published!In that time we have covered breaking news, business openings, traffic and weather and the news that impacts Apopka the most.We’ve given you the ins-and-outs of the City Council, and shown you how politics can hinder or enhance a municipality.We’ve inspired you on Sundays and informed you about all the news of Apopka seven days a week.The The Apopka Voice would like to thank all of our readers for your support. 7,000 stories in less than five years is enough words to publish 45 novels, and it’s because of readers like you that keep us going.According to Google Analytics, there is an average of 30,000 unique visitors to TheApopkaVoice.com website every month. We also have over 6,700 likes on Facebook.And solutions-based journalism is what we are striving for.The mission of The Apopka Voice is to rebalance the news so that readers are exposed to stories that help them understand problems and challenges, but also show potential ways to respond.

It called on Taraba state officials and national police inspector-general Tafa Balogun to see that he was freed immediately.Working conditions for journalists are fairly good in the federal capital, Lagos, but they are quite dangerous in the rest of the country, with local governors regularly targeting journalists who criticise them. Media in northern Nigeria are most at risk.Adaji has been held in prison in Jalingo (Taraba state) since July 22 without any official explanation, but his arrest appeared linked with an article he wrote headlined “Abacha in police uniform,” which exposed corruption and abuse of prisoners’ rights by Taraba state police commissioner Nwachukwu Egbochukwu.

Mezcal’s home is in Oaxaca while tequila is mainly produced in Jalisco. Mezcal was a precursor to tequila but isn’t as ubiquitous in the United States; luckily, that’s changing. Pasadena Eats, The Dining Blog Meet Mezcal, Your New Favorite Mexican Spirit, at Maestro Story and Photography by VERONICA AN Published on Monday, May 1, 2017 | 1:45 pm Maestro offers a few options to entice mezcal newbies. Their flights are the perfect introduction to the world of Mexican spirits. Choose from the Spirits of Mexico Flight with tequila, mezcal and sotol (a non-agave distilled spirit) or opt for Wild Things which focuses on mezcals made from wild agave plants. Spirit lovers can choose the Mezcaleros Corner which offers a smoky mezcal, a wild mezcal and a mezcal produced by a female distiller. Ramos usually pairs mezcal with food in contrasting flavors. He suggests reposado with salads or fried foods and chooses anejo for desserts. Stop by to sip and savor the spirits of Mexico along with a sharable selection of dishes from Mexico.

The major difference between the spirits comes in the cooking process. The agave for mezcal is traditionally cooked underground with wood which imparts a smoky, peaty flavor. Mezcal fermented without additives, like yeast, and is typically aged in whiskey barrels. Both spirits are categorized as Reposado (aged over two months) or Anejo (aged one year or more). Subscribe The Picosita Margarita is a colorful, slightly spicy take on the margarita made with mezcal, cucumber jalapeno, lime and a chipotle spiced rim. For another familiar drink try the Agave Old Fashioned. This drink is a blend of mezcal and tequila, sweetened with agave syrup instead of sugar, and angostura bitters. For a new take of The Last Word, order the Mezcal Campfire which plays up the spirit’s smoky taste. This drink features mezcal, green chartreuse, lime and maraschino poured over rosemary which is burnt in the glass. They also offer traditional Cazuela cocktail with served in a cazuela bowl that is meant to be passed from person to person. Maestro serves mezcal the traditional way, in candle votives from a church in Oaxaca, with orange slices topped with warm (spiced) salt as a palate cleanser.

Pallasch said. “For too long, higher education was seen as the only path, but we know that’s not the only or best choice for many young adults. This investment in youth apprenticeship is key to helping broaden understanding of career options, and to giving these young adults an on-ramp to apprenticeship.”Information on how eligible applicants can apply for funding can be found at www.grants.gov. Visit www.apprenticeship.gov to learn more about the department’s broader efforts to connect career seekers with apprenticeship opportunities and expand apprenticeship into new sectors and industries.The ETA administers federal job training and dislocated worker programs, federal grants to states for public employment service programs, and unemployment insurance benefits.
