ATG defends Swedish limits despite little evidence of problem play

By on August 24, 2021

first_img“In March this year, ATG introduced a mandatory loss limit at casinos. It was no coincidence that the introduction coincided with the advent of the pandemic,” she said. “It has never felt so right to help our customers make active decisions. I do not reject deposit limits or time limits, but if I had to choose a limit, I would choose a loss limit.” Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regtech AB Trav och Galopp (ATG) acknowledged its fears of a sudden rise in problem gambling in the wake of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) have so far proved to be unfounded, but reiterated its support for the country’s casino loss limits. The operator’s head of sustainability and corporate social responsibility Maria Guggenberger claimed the operator’s loss limit introduced in April as Sweden dealt with the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) has been a great success. “What this is due to can only be speculated on,” she said. “Perhaps the answer lies in the fact that channeling is decreasing and that more and more people are playing at unlicensed companies.  However, Guggenberger also noted that despite ATG’s initial fears during the early stages of the pandemic, there has been “no indication that problem gambling has increased” so far. She pointed out pointed out that gambling addiction helplines received fewer calls during the period from March to May. 13th October 2020 | By Daniel O’Boylecenter_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “Maybe it’s because gambling is generally declining.

I’d buy the Standard Life Aberdeen share price for its fantastic 9% dividend yield

By on July 5, 2021

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The Standard Life Aberdeen share price was hammered during the March stock market crash. There is no shame in that. Plenty of other top FTSE 100 stocks also took a beating.The fund manager’s stock has started to recover, but I still think it offers an attractive buying opportunity today. Especially since the group is standing by its dividend (unlike many FTSE 100 companies) and yields almost 9%.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…Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) struggled to convince investors that the 2017 merger between Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management will pay dividends. The group suffered teething problems, including a costly dispute with Lloyds, and so far the expected synergies and savings have yet to justify the link-up.Standard Life Aberdeen share price reboundsIn early March, the group reported a 12.5% fall in annual fee-based revenue to £1.6bn, despite improving investment performance. Then came the Covid-19 crash. The Standard Life Aberdeen share price collapsed by almost half, hitting just 174p at the market low on 23 March.At The Motley Fool, we believe the most exciting time to buy top FTSE 100 stocks is right after they have been hammered by a crash. Those who bought on that dip will have been rewarded, as the stock is up a third since then. However, do not despair if you missed that opportunity, it still trades well below its valuation before the crisis.Better still, investors enjoy more dividend visibility. Last month, the group said it was pressing ahead with its £300m final dividend payment. Investors will have been delighted by chairman Sir Douglas Flint’s protective attitude towards the group’s 1m private investors. As he made clear, many are retired and dependent on dividend income to get by.He also made it clear that the group is in a position to make the payment, helped by selling investments in India. That left it with £1.7bn of surplus capital at the time.A top FTSE 100 income stockThat leaves the Standard Life Aberdeen share price yielding a hugely generous 8.9%. Dividend cover is thin at 0.9 times earnings, so in the longer run, investors will want to see those earnings pick up. But Flint’s words suggest the dividend will not be scrapped lightly.Standard Life Aberdeen does look slightly expensive, trading at 17.5 times forecast earnings. You have to take valuation metrics like the P/E ratio with a pinch of salt these days, but if that worries you, there are cheaper FTSE 100 stocks out there.The next leg of the stock market recovery could prove tricky as the scale of the looming recession sinks in. However, the group may benefit from its Asian expertise, as this region seems likely to lead the recovery.The Standard Life Aberdeen share price looks tempting, if you take a long-term view. You don’t get many dividends like this right now.

Investing money in an ISA? I’d buy crashing UK shares today to make a million

By on

first_img See all posts by Peter Stephens I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Investing money in UK shares today may not seem to be the right means to make a million. After all, the stock market has recently experienced one of its fastest ever declines. There’s also the potential for a second stock market crash in the coming months.However, many British stocks currently trade at low prices. That suggest they offer wide margins of safety. Over time, they could deliver improving profitability that leads to stronger investor sentiment. As such, buying a selection of them now may lead to high returns for ISA investors who can look beyond short-term risks.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…Upcoming challenges to UK sharesAt present, it’s easier for all investors to focus on the potential threats that could derail the recovery prospects for UK shares. For example, Brexit is likely to cause continued uncertainty for investors over the coming months. It’s an unprecedented event that’s likely to represent a significant change. Therefore, it may cause some investors to demand wider margins of safety before purchasing stocks.Furthermore, the coronavirus pandemic continues to be a known unknown. How long it will last and the likelihood of potential lockdowns are impossible to quantify. Therefore, its ongoing presence may naturally mean investors are more risk averse than would otherwise be the case. This may lead to above-average volatility. It may as lead to continued low valuations for those companies most at risk of falling sales in the coming months.A long-term recoveryUltimately, investor sentiment towards UK shares is very likely to change. History shows that weak sentiment towards the stock market has only ever been temporary. Indeed, it’s always been replaced by more bullish sentiment as the economic outlook improves.Therefore, before valuations among many stocks recover, now could be the right time to buy a selection of high-quality businesses while they trade at low prices. They could offer the greatest scope for capital growth due to their wide margins of safety.Furthermore, many high-quality companies are currently trading at low prices that don’t reflect their financial positions or competitive advantages. They may be able to use current market weakness to extend their dominance to generate stronger profit growth in the coming years.Millionaire potentialMaking a million from UK shares could be a more realistic goal than many investors realise. For example, the stock market has produced high single-digit annual returns over recent decades. Assuming a similar return on a £750 monthly investment would produce a portfolio valued at £1m within around 35 years.Of course, the amount of time it takes to obtain an ISA portfolio valued at over a million can be reduced through buying high-quality companies when they trade at cheap prices. With many British stocks appearing to do so today, now could be the right time to start investing money in the stock market.

New era for Ethiopia’s journalists

By on June 12, 2021

first_img News Receive email alerts News May 18, 2021 Find out more Ethiopia arbitrarily suspends New York Times reporter’s accreditation May 21, 2021 Find out more Organisation Help by sharing this information EthiopiaAfrica Freedom of expression By releasing imprisoned journalists, unblocking access to news websites and lifting bans on media outlets that had been imposed by the previous regime, Abiy’s government has moved in a swift and spectacular manner in the 12 months since it took office on 2 April 2018.For the first time in more than 15 years, no journalists are being held in connection with their work. A total of 264 previously banned websites and blogs have been given permission to operate. Leading Ethiopian TV channels that had been forced to operate from bases outside the country, such as OMN and ESAT, can now operate in Ethiopia. In all, 23 publications and six TV channels have been approved in recent months.“In the past year, Ethiopia has gone from being one of Africa’s biggest jailer of journalists, only just behind neighbouring Eritrea, to being a country where journalists can now fulfil their role as a fourth estate and criticize the government without immediately being imprisoned,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“We urge the new authorities to continue the important progress that has been achieved by quickly keeping the promise to overhaul legislation that is extremely repressive for journalists, by improving access to state-held information, by abolishing Internet cuts altogether, and by acting as press freedom advocates internationally.”Hostile legislative environmentA commission that was established to review the draconian media laws is due to issue its conclusions in the next few weeks. In the past decade, a major arsenal of legislative weapons had been created to gag the media. It included a 2009 terrorism law that was used to sentence the well-known journalist Eskinder Nega to 18 years in prison just for speculating about the Arab Spring’s potential impact on Ethiopia.The 2008 law on mass media and access to information provides the authorities with broad powers for prosecuting journalists on defamation charges and for preventing the publication of content that could disturb public order. And, under the 2016 cyber-crime law, just sharing “defamatory” content is punishable by several years in prison.Under these three laws, dozens of journalists and bloggers were detained, prosecuted and given arbitrary prison sentences just for exercising their legitimate right to freedom of expression and information.Old habits die hardThe Internet, which was often disconnected under the previous government, has for the most part been restored but inter-ethnic conflicts prompted occasional cuts in 2018 that complicated accessing sources and sharing information for the journalists who were trying to cover these conflicts.Meddling in the editorial decisions of independent media outlets also seems hard to shake off. The executives of two TV channels, ENN and Tigray TV, were summoned by the regulatory agency in June because they had not provided live coverage of a ruling party rally.Finally, although the prime minister gave two press conferences immediately since he took office, access to state-held information is still very far from adequate and the law guaranteeing access is, for the most part, not being implemented.Ethiopia is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.
