Apollo Management and a consortium of Advent International and the Carlyle Group both submitted final bids for Parques on Friday. But the two offers were below Candover’s asking price for the operator of 69 theme parks in Europe and the US.TERRA FIRMA SPENDS €670M ON SOLAR ENERGYTerra Firma, the UK private equity group, has sealed its third renewable energy deal by acquiring Italy’s biggest solar power company from Terna, the Italian national grid operator, for as much as €670m (£588m).FORD TO SLASH MAZDA STAKEFord is preparing to sell most of its remaining interest in Japan’s Mazda in a move that would all but end the carmakers’ 31-year capital alliance. Ford wants to reduce its 11 per cent stake in Mazda to less than three per cent, according to people familiar with the matter. The total stake would be worth about $372m at the current market price. The US carmaker controlled 33 per cent of Mazda as recently as 2008 until collapsing motor industry sales forced it to sell assets to raise cash.GE PLANS RETURN TO US-MADE PRODUCTSGeneral Electric plans to invest $432m in four US centres that design and make refrigerators by 2014. The move will reverse a long-term trend of outsourcing its appliance manufacturing to places such as China. GE argues that a combination of US production quality and rising transport, currency and labour costs have made the moves practicable.THE TIMESPREMIER MULLS $500M BID One of Britain’s biggest independent oil explorers is mulling a $500 million bid for BP’s gas production business in Pakistan in an attempt to bolster its position in the troubled South Asian nation. Premier Oil has expressed an interest in the unit alongside Mubadala, the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund, according to people familiar with the talks. OBAMA SET TO RATTLE CAMPAIGN TINAs fundraiser-in-chief for a party in dire need of money President Obama will embark tomorrow on a breakneck tour of the American West to rattle the campaign tin for five powerful allies locked in races that Democrats cannot afford to lose.

Seismic surveys show the Leviathan prospect, located 135 kilometers, or about 84 miles, off Israel’s northern coast, may hold 16 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, enough to supply all of Israel’s gas needs for 100 years. HUNGARY UNVEILS TAX PLAN Hungary’s populist leaders unveiled a new budget plan that singles out a handful of industries for large, temporary tax increases in an effort to raise funds and cut the state deficit.

How I’d identify great shares to buy in a stock market recovery

first_img Finding the best shares to buy in a stock market recovery can be a challenging task. After all, forecasts are very dependent on the economic outlook. This itself is likely to be heavily impacted by coronavirus.However, by investing money in financially sound businesses that have long-term growth potential while they trade at low prices, an investor could reduce their risks and increase their potential rewards.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…Financial strength: key to long-term performanceThe past performance of equity markets suggests that a long-term stock market recovery is likely to continue in the coming years. There may be downturns in the meantime. But the stock market has always produced new record highs after each of its previous bear markets.However, companies must be able to survive present economic difficulties in order to benefit from a period of growth in the long run. As such, investors need to identify those businesses that have large cash positions, modest amounts of debt and access to liquidity (if required). Such firms may stand a better chance of surviving the short-term challenges that continue to face many sectors. And they could benefit from improved operating conditions and stronger investor sentiment in the coming years.Low valuations ahead of a stock market recoveryIn a stock market recovery, the best performing shares are often those companies that previously traded at low prices. They have greater scope to deliver capital gains, since they trade at a larger discount to intrinsic value.As such, buying undervalued stocks today could be a profitable long-term move. They can be found by, for example, looking at the value of their net assets versus share prices, or by considering their earnings track record in a variety of operating conditions. This may provide guidance as to whether they have the capacity to trade significantly higher in the long run. In cases where they seem to offer wide margins of safety, there may be opportunities to deliver market-beating performance in a stock market recovery.Identifying potential growth opportunitiesIt is difficult to assess the prospects for any stock at the moment. Ultimately, nobody knows how the economy will perform due to the ongoing pandemic. Furthermore, the financial cost of the pandemic remains unclear. This could have an impact on growth opportunities within many industries.However, buying companies that may benefit from underlying industry growth trends could be worthwhile ahead of a stock market recovery. For example, healthcare companies may capitalise on demographic changes such as an ageing population. Equally, online retailers may use digital growth opportunities to enhance their earning capacity.Through purchasing such companies when they have solid finances and trade at low prices, it is possible to capitalise on a long-term market rally. This could improve an investor’s financial position in the coming years.

Please enter your email address here Poll: 72% of Floridians Less Likely to Support a Candidate Who Votes to Expand GamblingFloridians say voters, not politicians, should decide whether to expand gamblingA poll released last week by No Casinos, shows 72% of Florida voters are less likely to support a political candidate who votes to expand gambling without first putting the measure before voters in a statewide referendum. The poll is being sent to all legislative candidates along with a pledge statement that they will oppose the expansion of gambling in Florida.The poll, conducted by Hill Research Consultants, surveyed Florida voters on their opinions about gambling. Among its findings, the poll found that:69% support a referendum requiring voter approval of all gambling expansion decisions. Such a referendum, the Voter Control of Gambling Amendment, currently is before the Florida Supreme Court for placement on the 2018 ballot. Only 21% oppose it.83% believe that Florida voters should decide gambling policy in Florida. By comparison, 7% believe the Florida Legislature should decide, 3% believe the Governor should decide and 3% believe the courts should decide.72% indicated they would be less likely to support a political candidate who supports expanded gambling in Florida without a statewide vote. By contrast, 18% are more likely to support such a candidate and 6% say it makes no difference.75% disagree that more gambling in their city will improve the quality of life for them or their families, while 18% believe more gambling improves their quality of life.“The will of the voters could not be clearer,’’ said John Sowinski, President of No Casinos. “Regardless of political party, Floridians overwhelmingly want a say in whether gambling will be expanded in our state. They understand the negative social and economic consequences. This is why the gaming industry continually tries to circumvent public opinion, hiring lobbyists and lawyers to push their agenda of more and bigger casinos in the Legislature and courts. Elected officials should take heed — it is not only good public policy, it is also smart politics to reject expanding gambling in Florida.”The poll was conducted from June 23– June 27, 2016. It had a sample of 670 active voters that voted in at least one election 2010–2015. Margin of error is +/- 3.8%.Go here to view all of the 2016 No Casinos Poll Results.No Casinos has asked candidates to sign the pledge and return it by August 5, 2016.

JPL’s Next Mars Rover Progresses Toward 2020 Launch

first_img Business News COMPUTER-DESIGN DRAWING FOR NASA’S 2020 MARS ROVER: This 2016 image comes from computer-assisted-design work on NASA’s 2020 Mars rover. The design leverages many successful features of NASA’s Curiosity rover, which landed on Mars in 2012, but it adds new science instruments and a sampling system to carry out the new goals for the 2020 missionAfter an extensive review process and passing a major development milestone, NASA is ready to proceed with final design and construction of its next Mars rover, currently targeted to launch in summer of 2020 and arrive on the Red Planet in February 2021.The Mars 2020 rover will investigate a region of Mars where the ancient environment may have been favorable for microbial life, probing the Martian rocks for evidence of past life. Throughout its investigation, it will collect samples of soil and rock, and cache them on the surface for potential return to Earth by a future mission.“The Mars 2020 rover is the first step in a potential multi-mission campaign to return carefully selected and sealed samples of Martian rocks and soil to Earth,” said Geoffrey Yoder, acting associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. “This mission marks a significant milestone in NASA’s Journey to Mars — to determine whether life has ever existed on Mars, and to advance our goal of sending humans to the Red Planet.”To reduce risk and provide cost savings, the 2020 rover will look much like its six-wheeled, one-ton predecessor, Curiosity, but with an array of new science instruments and enhancements to explore Mars as never before. For example, the rover will conduct the first investigation into the usability and availability of Martian resources, including oxygen, in preparation for human missions.Mars 2020 will carry an entirely new subsystem to collect and prepare Martian rocks and soil samples that includes a coring drill on its arm and a rack of sample tubes. About 30 of these sample tubes will be deposited at select locations for return on a potential future sample-retrieval mission. In laboratories on Earth, specimens from Mars could be analyzed for evidence of past life on Mars and possible health hazards for future human missions.Two science instruments mounted on the rover’s robotic arm will be used to search for signs of past life and determine where to collect samples by analyzing the chemical, mineral, physical and organic characteristics of Martian rocks. On the rover’s mast, two science instruments will provide high-resolution imaging and three types of spectroscopy for characterizing rocks and soil from a distance, also helping to determine which rock targets to explore up close.A suite of sensors on the mast and deck will monitor weather conditions and the dust environment, and a ground-penetrating radar will assess sub-surface geologic structure.The Mars 2020 rover will use the same sky crane landing system as Curiosity, but will have the ability to land in more challenging terrain with two enhancements, making more rugged sites eligible as safe landing candidates.“By adding what’s known as range trigger, we can specify where we want the parachute to open, not just at what velocity we want it to open,” said Allen Chen, Mars 2020 entry, descent and landing lead at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “That shrinks our landing area by nearly half.”Terrain-relative navigation on the new rover will use onboard analysis of downward-looking images taken during descent, matching them to a map that indicates zones designated unsafe for landing.“As it is descending, the spacecraft can tell whether it is headed for one of the unsafe zones and divert to safe ground nearby,” said Chen. “With this capability, we can now consider landing areas with unsafe zones that previously would have disqualified the whole area. Also, we can land closer to a specific science destination, for less driving after landing.”There will be a suite of cameras and a microphone that will capture the never-before-seen or heard imagery and sounds of the entry, descent and landing sequence. Information from the descent cameras and microphone will provide valuable data to assist in planning future Mars landings, and make for thrilling video.“Nobody has ever seen what a parachute looks like as it is opening in the Martian atmosphere,” said JPL’s David Gruel, assistant flight system manager for the Mars 2020 mission. “So this will provide valuable engineering information.”Microphones have flown on previous missions to Mars, including NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander in 2008, but never have actually been used on the surface of the Red Planet.“This will be a great opportunity for the public to hear the sounds of Mars for the first time, and it could also provide useful engineering information,” said Mars 2020 Deputy Project Manager Matt Wallace of JPL.Once a mission receives preliminary approval, it must go through four rigorous technical and programmatic reviews – known as Key Decision Points (KDP) — to proceed through the phases of development prior to launch. Phase A involves concept and requirements definition, Phase B is preliminary design and technology development, Phase C is final design and fabrication, and Phase D is system assembly, testing and launch. Mars 2020 has just passed its KDP-C milestone.“Since Mars 2020 is leveraging the design and some spare hardware from Curiosity, a significant amount of the mission’s heritage components have already been built during Phases A and B,” said George Tahu, Mars 2020 program executive at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “With the KDP to enter Phase C completed, the project is proceeding with final design and construction of the new systems, as well as the rest of the heritage elements for the mission.”The Mars 2020 mission is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program.
