Debenhams share price plummets despite online sales uplift

first_imgTuesday 13 January 2015 4:26 am The figuresShares in troubled department store Debenhams fell nearly eight per cent in mid-morning trading, despite figures published this morning suggesting it had a record Christmas. The retailer said like-for-like sales in the four weeks to 10 January rose 4.9 per cent. Particularly successful were online sales, which went up by 29 per cent. Demand for Click & Collect peaked at 38 per cent of online orders in the immediate approach to Christmas. However, sales for the 19 weeks to 10 January fell 0.8 per cent, missing analysts’ expectations of growth of one per cent.Why it’s interestingThe department store has faced increasing competition from rivals such as House of Fraser and John Lewis over recent years – in October last year, Debenhams reported a 20 per cent fall in full-year pre-tax profits. But investors shouldn’t disregard those Christmas trading figures. The retailer didn’t issue a profit warning at the end of last year, despite whispers in the City suggesting it might. After all, just before Christmas 2013, shares fell more than 12 per cent after it warned first-half profits had been hit by discounting. And let’s not forget Mike Ashley’s interest in the group. In November last year, the Sports Direct founder converted his – or, rather, his company’s – 4.6 per cent stake in the business into a put option worth 6.1 per cent, much to shareholders’ chagrin. They shouldn’t be disheartened. In the long term, its performance over Christmas may reflect a change in fortune for Debenhams, but the fact its biggest rival – House of Fraser – also had a very good Christmas indicates it might be nothing more than a symptom of the festive season.What Debenhams saidChief executive Michael Sharp is positive about the future:  I am pleased with our performance in the critical Christmas trading weeks, driven by our strength in a diverse range of product categories and a strong marketing campaign focussed on gifting.  We continue to focus on building stable and sustainable profit growth and have made good progress on the five priorities we set out last year.  In short Debenhams is having a tough time keeping up with its department store rivals. This has been concerning shareholders, but its performance over Christmas indicates it is still very much in the game.  Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoHero WarsAdvertisement This game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsUndoMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekUndoThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoFungus EliminatorIf You Have Toenail Fungus Try This TonightFungus EliminatorUndoBeverly Hills MDPlastic Surgeon Explains: “Doing This Every Morning Can Snap Back Sagging Skin” (No Creams Needed)Beverly Hills MDUndoThe Chef PickElisabeth Shue, 57, Sends Fans Wild As She Flaunts Age-Defying FigureThe Chef PickUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementIf Your Dog Eats Grass (Do This Every Day)Ultimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Debenhams share price plummets despite online sales uplift whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Sarah Spickernell whatsapp Share Tags: Company Debenhamslast_img read more

Inflation basket of goods: Ecigarettes and craft beer in, yoghurt drinks and sat navs out

first_img Emma Haslett Tuesday 17 March 2015 6:36 am whatsapp A sign of modern life, or a marker of British society’s inexorable slide into middle classness? The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has performed its annual reshuffle of the basket of goods, the items it uses to measure inflation. It’s all gone a bit… Waitrose-y. Among the additions to the basket are refills for ecigarettes, craft beer and sweet potatoes. Those being removed include yoghurt drinks, frozen pizzas and sat navs. It’s now been 70 years since the ONS first compiled a shopping list of items it reckons the average household tends to buy. Back then, the list included hats – of the male and female variety – as well as gas fires and cod liver oil. Since then, gramophone records have been replaced by 12″ albums, CDs and eventually MP3s, Today’s release, however, includes a subscription to a music streaming service.What’s inWhat the ONS saysChilled pizzaReplaces frozen pizza as spending on chilled pizzas has risen above spending on the frozen alternative.LiverThis item has been introduced to represent the market for offal which has not been in the basket since 1999. It also helps meet future proposed changes to European classifications. Oven-ready joint, gammon/pork  Replaces an oven-ready joint. The item has been refined to meet proposed European classification changes which will require the joint to come from a specific animal. Gammon/pork has been chosen as the most practical for price collection purposes. MelonThis is an under-covered class. Fruit prices vary greatly so it is beneficial to collect across as broad a range as possible. Sweet potatoVegetable prices vary greatly so it is beneficial to collect across as broad a range as possible. Sweet potato represents a market not currently covered in the basket.Protein powderIt represents a distinct and growing sector not previously covered within the class.Speciality beer/ale, bottled Introduced due to the increase in expenditure and shelf space devoted to speciality/real ales. Ecigarette refills/liquidIntroduced due to the increase in expenditure as more people are using e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid. Non-white emulsion/paintReplaces white emulsion to reflect the shelf-space allocated to coloured rather than white paint. Mobile phone accessoryThis is an under-covered class and the accessory (such as chargers and cases) has been introduced to represent a significant and growing market.Headphones Introduced to reflect spending on audio-visual equipment accessories. Games consoles online subscription services Introduced to represent the growing market for online gaming. Music streaming subscription servicesIntroduced to capture price changes in this new sector as it becomes a more popular way to listen to music. .What’s outWhat the ONS saysFrozen pizzaReplaced by chilled pizza as spending on chilled pizza has risen above spending on the frozen alternative.Home killed beef, braising steakRemoved due to low coverage since it’s unavailable in many outlets. Beef is well represented within the category and this item’s removal creates space for offal in the basket. Oven-ready jointReplaced by a gammon/pork oven-ready joint as proposed European classification changes will require the joint to come from a specific animal. Yoghurt drinkRemoved from an over-covered section due to falling sales. White emulsion paintReplaced by non-white emulsion to reflect the shelf-space allocated to coloured rather than white paint. Satellite navigation deviceExpenditure on this item is falling due to smart phones increasingly being used for this purpose and some new cars having built-in satellite navigation devices. Cut flowers, lilliesOver-covered area of the basket and flowers are still represented by the spray carnations. Foreign exchange commissionThe European regulations on which CPI is based specify foreign exchange costs have to be measured by the commission charged but commission is generally not charged in the UK. Additionally, people increasingly use bank cards to buy goods and services abroad, and charges for these services are included elsewhere in the basket.   Show Comments ▼ Tags: Ecigarettes UK inflation whatsapp Share Inflation basket of goods: Ecigarettes and craft beer in, yoghurt drinks and sat navs out More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comlast_img read more

Dairy Board CEO Cites Benefits of Policy Framework for Local Dairy Industry

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Despite the challenges currently facing the dairy industry, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Jamaica Dairy Development Board (JDDB), Dr. Paul Jennings, believes the sector can rebound through the establishment of a policy framework that will generate new investments.Dr. Jennings tells JIS News that, currently, milk production is way below where it could be. “I say that against the background that in 1992, we had peaked at some 38.8 million litres of milk. What has characterised the period since then, has been almost a consistent decline, down to 14 or 14.1 million litres, and a significant reduction in the number of players in the local sector.”He points out, however, that data for the first six months of this year indicates that “we should come out a little better than we did last year”, noting that with Serge Island Dairies Limited, having just completed the commissioning of a new dairy at Belvedere in St. Thomas, it is expected that the impact of that will be seen during the last quarter of this year. “So we expect that we should be coming closer to about 14 Dairy Board CEO Cites Benefits of Policy Framework for Local Dairy Industry UncategorizedOctober 13, 2008 Advertisements RelatedDairy Board CEO Cites Benefits of Policy Framework for Local Dairy Industrycenter_img RelatedDairy Board CEO Cites Benefits of Policy Framework for Local Dairy Industry RelatedDairy Board CEO Cites Benefits of Policy Framework for Local Dairy Industrylast_img read more

Proposed marine parks on Buccaneer Archipelago progressing

first_imgProposed marine parks on Buccaneer Archipelago progressing First ever co-designed marine parks with traditional owners and State GovernmentIndicative joint management plans released for extended public comment Agreement reached on three Indigenous Land Use Agreements Traditional owners and the State Government today celebrated a milestone towards the creation of proposed marine parks in the Buccaneer Archipelago, with the release of indicative joint management plans for public comment.The proposed marine parks will cover about 660,000 hectares in the west Kimberley within Bardi, Jawi, Mayala and Dambimangari sea country.The Buccaneer Archipelago has Western Australia’s highest concentration of traditional owner communities living adjacent to an existing or proposed marine park and dependent on those waters for their food supply and traditional practices.For the first time, proposed marine parks are being co-designed between traditional owners and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. Three indicative joint management plans have been released today, one for each traditional owner group’s sea country.Due to COVID-19 and the new co-design model, the public comment period has been increased to five months and will involve extensive consultation with stakeholders, including the commercial and recreational fishing industries.In addition, the three traditional owner groups joined Environment Minister Stephen Dawson today to announce that agreement has been reached on Indigenous Land Use Agreements to enable the joint management and joint vesting of the marine park.The proposed marine parks are a key commitment of the McGowan Government’s Plan for Our Parks initiative, which aims to create five million hectares of new national and marine parks and reserves in WA by 2024.The public comment period is open until May 21, 2021. For more information or to have your say, visit https://www.dbca.wa.gov.au/haveyoursay As stated by Environment Minister Stephen Dawson:“The Buccaneer Archipelago has extraordinary natural values including hundreds of islands surrounded by fringing coral reefs and extensive seagrass beds, providing an important food source for species such as turtles and dugongs.“I thank the traditional owners for their extensive work on the journey to create these proposed marine parks.“Protecting environmental and cultural values has been key to the design process, and I encourage everyone to have their say so we can create a marine park for all.“We are now embarking on genuine and meaningful engagement with commercial and recreational fishing, pearling and aquaculture sectors, as the zoning schemes are not final and we expect to negotiate changes to strike a balance between traditional owner, fishing and other needs.“The marine park will not be created until agreement is reached on the final joint management plan and zoning schemes, and stakeholder and public input into the consultation process will inform final marine park design.”As stated by Aboriginal Affairs Minister Ben Wyatt:“Today is a celebration of the significant achievements of the Bardi and Jawi, Mayala and Dambimangari traditional owners in working together with the State Government to design and progress the proposed marine parks.“The aspirations of traditional owners have been fundamental to the planning process and have ensured their stories, culture and vision for strong and healthy country are protected for current and future generations.” /Public Release.
