Nissan upbeat as profits fall

first_img NISSAN Motor’s quarterly profit fell 15 per cent on a stronger yen and sliding Japanese demand, but the decline was the slimmest among local automakers and it lifted its outlook on growing overseas sales.Nissan, which overtook Honda Motor as Japan’s second-biggest automaker last year, has been a standout particularly in China, where a line-up of small cars that qualified for tax incentives fuelled 36 per cent sales growth last year.It was also among the few brands to grow in the tepid European market, helped by the new Juke crossover and the older Qashqai SUV.For the full year to March 31, Nissan, owned 43 percent by France’s Renault, raised its operating profit forecast to 535bn yen (£4bn) from 485bn yen, matching the projection in a survey of 26 analysts.French carmaker PSA Peugeot Citroen also reported yesterday. It said it has returned to profit in 2010, and set its sights on India and other fast-growing emerging markets to compensate for a flat European market.“Whilst 2011 is likely to remain challenging in European markets, our global development should continue,” Europe’s second-biggest carmaker said.Bernstein analyst Max Warburton wrote in a research note that PSA “continued to look stuck between a rock – European overcapacity, fragmentation and VW pricing pressure – and a hard place – behind most European competitors in ex-European expansion.”Barclays Capital analyst Kristina Church wrote that the results were “uninspiring”.

I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 shares today to make a million after the stock market crash

first_img Buying FTSE 100 shares after the stock market crash could prove to be a sound means of making a million over the long run. The index has a solid track record of recovery after its previous bear markets. And it’s likely to follow this trend in the coming years.With that in mind, here are two blue-chip stocks that appear to offer good value for money after their recent share price declines. Buying them now, and holding them for the long term, could boost your chances of obtaining a seven-figure portfolio.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…FTSE 100 retailer TescoTesco (LSE: TSCO) has experienced a period of high uncertainty, despite sales rising rapidly at a time when many FTSE 100 businesses have reported weaker demand. For example, the company’s recent quarterly update showed that its like-for-like sales increased by 7.9%.However, with it has come increased costs as the company responded to surging demand for home delivery. But this is set to be mitigated by business rate relief and higher volumes.Tesco also experienced rising demand at its convenience stores in the most recent quarter. Encouragingly, customer perception of its brand improved to the highest level since 2011. This could mean the business has a relatively strong position in what’s a highly competitive retail environment, which could lead to higher returns over the long run.Clearly, the FTSE 100 stock faces an uncertain future that could mean its price comes under pressure over the near term. However, its investment in new promotions, such as the well-received Aldi price match, and strong position in the rapidly-growing online grocery segment could act as catalysts on its share price over the coming years.DiageoAnother FTSE 100 share that could deliver a sound recovery in the long run is beverages business Diageo (LSE: DGE). Its share price has declined by 13% since the start of the year. The forced closure of pubs and restaurants was a major contributing factor in its disappointing operational performance.The challenges facing the company could continue over the near term, as reduced air travel is likely to mean travel sales come under pressure.However, over the long run, Diageo could deliver a successful turnaround. Its most recent trading update highlighted the measures it’s taking to reduce costs. Meanwhile, its strong balance sheet also suggests it has the financial position required to overcome short-term risks.The FTSE 100 business has a diverse range of brands and operations in various countries. This means it could be a major beneficiary of a likely global economic recovery. Add in a high degree of customer loyalty and what appears to be a sound overall growth strategy, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business. Especially while it appears to offer a relatively wide margin of safety.

France: Top 14 reaches its denouement

first_imgThere are stories of elation and dejection just waiting to be written as we enter the final stages of the Top 14, it’s too close to call… Spare a thought this week for Grenoble manager Fabrice Landreau. At the end of March his side were in the top six of the Top 14 and looking good for a place in next season’s Champions Cup. They’d just beaten Stade Francais on the road, only the second time the Parisians had lost at home this season, and next up for Grenoble was the visit of bottom-placed Castres. It should have been another victory to move them further up the table, but a slack first-half cost Grenoble dear and they lost 16-12.Morale slumped, form, too, and three more defeats followed to leave Grenoble hovering above the drop zone and trying not to think of the financial implications of relegation to the ProD2. “This championship, it’s terrible, for us and for the other clubs,” mused Landreau on Saturday evening, in the wake of Grenoble’s 37-17 defeat to Clermont. “These two last weekends are going to be terrible for the nerves.”Confidence loss: Racing Metro are showing an inconsistency that will frustrate boss Jacky LorenzettiNext up for Grenoble is the visit to the Stade des Alpes on Saturday of in-form Toulouse, who have won their last five league matches to move into third. This is the same Toulouse side who in the early autumn lost the same number of games on the bounce. If Grenoble lose to Toulouse their fate will be decided on the final weekend of the championship when they go to Lyon.That is at least some comfort to Landreau and his fellow coach, former Leinster and Ireland hooker Bernard Jackman. Lyon are ten points adrift at the foot of the table and, barring a mathematical miracle, as good as relegated. They travel to Oyonnax on Friday night, to play the surprise package of this season’s Top 14. Lying fifth in the table, Oyonnax know that with their final game away at Toulon they must beat Lyon if they’re to have any chance of finishing in the top six.Lying one place above Lyon are Bayonne, on 47 points, the same number as Castres who have a superior points difference. Bayonne are at Bordeaux on Saturday, a tough place to visit at any time, but particularly when their hosts are still in with a chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions Cup.Plenty to fight for: Bordeaux (in blue) are still in the running for the Champions Cup just ahead of opponents OyonnaxBayonne’s final match is at home to La Rochelle, another side who have punched above their weight this season, but the hosts will be quietly confident of victory given what is at stake and the atmosphere of their raucous supporters. As for Castres, they have the biggest game of their season on Saturday when they welcome Brive to the Stade Pierre Antoine. Brive, hammered 67-19 by Toulouse on Saturday, are on 48 points (the same number as Grenoble) and victory over Castres should ensure their survival, as they’re at home to Stade Francais for the final match of the season. Not an easy fixture but a better one than Castres, whose season concludes with a trip to Racing Metro.Racing Metro are experiencing another season of frustrating inconsistency. Though they reached the last eight of the Champions Cup for the first time, Racing’s indiscipline in the dying seconds of the quarter-final against Saracens cost them a place in the semi. It also appears to have cost them their confidence as Racing have failed to win their three league games since that slip-up against Sarries.Racing are sixth in the table and it’s conceivable that with an awkward away trip to La Rochelle on Saturday they could finish outside the top six. Were that to happen one imagines there would be repercussions from owner Jacky Lorenzetti who, despite huge investment, has yet to see any major silverware in the nine years since he got involved with the Parisian club. Lorenzetti has never been the No1 fan of Mourad Boudjellal but how he must envy his Toulon counterpart whose involvement with the Cote d’Azur club also began in 2006.Happy days: Mathieu Bastareaud and Toulon are closing in on a second consecutive titleHaving won an unprecedented third European title at the start of the month, Toulon are well placed to clinch a second successive Top 14 title, and at the same time create another piece of rugby history by winning back-to-back doubles. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Form team: Luke MacAlister’s Toulouse have won their last five games on the spin Four points ahead of second placed Clermont, Toulon clash with their arch rivals on Sunday night at the Stade Marcel Michelin, but the pressure will be more on the hosts’ shoulders. Clermont are just one point clear of Toulouse and two in front of Stade Francais, and after Toulon Les Jaunards wrap up their regular season with a trip to Montpellier, who are now finding some form under Jake White.So tight is it at the top that Clermont could win the regular season championship or they could finish fifth, sixth or, albeit very unlikely, seventh. As Landreau said, the next fortnight are going to be “terrible for the nerves”, for those at the top and at the bottom.last_img read more

From Alton Sterling to Jordan Edwards, no justice, no peace!

first_imgAlton SterlingThere are many progressive struggles under capitalism, many connected to each other due to systemic inequality. Inside the U.S. — aptly described as the belly of the beast — the struggle against racism or white supremacy is the heart and soul of many issues every minute of every day. Probably the most glaring example is the ongoing police war against Black and Brown people, especially youth.In 99.9% of cases, white police officers who fatally kill Black people either get a slap on the wrist, by being put on a desk job or being fired, or are let off scot free in order to continue their reign of racist terror. Very rarely do police officers get indicted and charged with murder.For instance, on May 5, the U.S. Justice Department — now led by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has a sordid history of racist, segregationist views — announced that no federal charges will be brought against the two white cops who fatally shot Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old Black man, in Baton Rouge, La., last July outside a convenience store.  His murder was captured on videotape that clearly shows the cops holding Sterling down on his back before shooting him.The Sterling ruling is far from an isolated one. There are the cases of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., Jamar Clark and Philandro Castile in Minneapolis, Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Korryn Gaines and Freddie Gray in Baltimore, and countless more victims whose killers were cops who never faced any jail time.Even in those rare cases where white police officers have been charged with the murder of Black people, the courts manage to let them off on lesser charges. Killer cop Michael Slager was charged by the state of South Carolina in the murder of 40-year-old Walter Scott, whom he shot eight times in the back in North Charleston in 2015. A mistrial by jury was declared on Dec. 5, 2016, although there was a videotape of the murder.  Slager pleaded guilty to federal charges of violating Scott’s civil rights on May 2. A sentence has not yet been announced.A white cop who fatally shot a 15-year-old Black youth, Jordan Edwards, when he shot into a car filled with teenagers April 29 in Balch Springs, a suburb of Dallas, Texas, was only recently charged with murder. The cop, Roy Oliver, turned himself in. The chances of Oliver being convicted are next to none, according to data collected by criminologist Philip Stinson since 2005.Stinson states, “About 1,000 times a year, an on-duty police officer shoots and kills somebody — and yet only about a handful of times is he charged. Only 29 of the 81 cases — or 36% — have ended with the officer being convicted, with about half convicted by jury trial and other half by guilty plea. Thirty-one of the cases (38%) wound up with a non-conviction, and the other 21 (26%) remain pending.”  (, May 8)And these are general statistics that don’t take into consideration when the killer cop is white and the victim is Black.No doubt the capitalist courts and laws will somehow find convenient loopholes to protect the actions of police like Oliver, while demonizing and dehumanizing their victims. When any police officer is charged with murder or even manslaughter, that reflects the strength of shut-it-down protest in the streets, especially carried out under the banner of Black Lives Matter.And Black Lives Matter is fighting not only police terror but its presence reflects resistance to other forms of white supremacy, like the recent incident where Baltimore Orioles baseball player, Adam Jones, was forced to endure racist epithets from Boston Red Sox fans. Jones is among a tiny minority of 62 African-American Major League Baseball players who still have to endure racist taunts from majority white baseball fans.Despite any important concessions made in the struggle against racism from state repression to sports, ultimately it will take a revolutionary transformation of the workers and oppressed to uproot white supremacy from all sectors of U.S. society.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

No walls in the workers’ struggle!

first_img“This is not the end but only the beginning of the struggle.”These words were spoken on May Day. The year was 1890. The speaker was none other than Eleanor Marx. Seven years after her father’s death, she was carrying the torch passed on to her by the beloved leader of the working class, Karl Marx. May 1, 2019, has to be seen in the same light by the torch bearers of today: as the beginning of the next phase of the class struggle. That is the view of the International Workers’ Solidarity Network, which has put forth the call for monthly Workers’ Solidarity Days. This call has already been endorsed by hundreds of signers from around the country and throughout the world.The appeal for monthly action states in part: “Among the many challenges to global working-class solidarity is a vile campaign by billionaire politicians like Donald Trump to divide workers on the basis of racism, sexism, xenophobia, ableism and anti-LGBTQ2S oppression. “Trump’s war on immigrant workers is a war on the entire working class. The wall he wants to build on the border is a wall to divide workers. “But we know there are no walls in the workers struggle! We must say this to the ‘Trumps’ playing the same game on every continent in the world.“The message must be spread: Every struggle is a workers’ struggle. That includes students striking against climate change, young activists marching against racist police terror, women and gender-oppressed people rising up and saying, ‘Me too,’ and people with disabilities fighting for their rights.”The network has proposed June 1 as the first Workers’ Solidarity Day, while urging we take any opportunity for solidarity that comes up before then. There’s no break in the class struggle even though May Day is over!  For instance, a Solidarity Day could be organized on May 8 in the eight U.S. cities where drivers working for Uber and Lyft will stage job actions. RideShare Drivers United has called for “Apps off” from midnight to midnight.Wherever the drivers rally, the Solidarity Network will be there. The network has also called a demonstration on Wall St. May 8, the day that Uber begins to sell its shares on the New York Stock Exchange. Drivers are facing pay cuts, but in the eyes of potential stockholders that just means more profits.These exploited workers can’t wait — and aren’t waiting — for entrenched labor bureaucrats to figure out how to organize new workers in the gig economy. This courageous job action follows walkouts by Amazon workers and the global walkout against sexual harassment and racism by Google workers.This is not to say that labor unions are outmoded or no longer have a role in the class struggle. Militant strikes by education workers, hotel service workers, retail and grocery workers demonstrate just the opposite. But what is needed right now is a global movement of the entire working class, organized and “unorganized” labor encompassing the most oppressed and exploited workers.This is the perspective behind holding monthly Solidarity Days. Solidarity with im/migrant workers will be a major theme, with “No walls in the workers’ struggle” the rallying point. Actions will also honor LGBTQ2S Pride month in June, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion. Workers’ Solidarity Day is about tearing down all the walls that divide workers — from the physical border wall Trump is demanding to the walls of racism, misogyny and all forms of bigotry. The working-class movement must discard the notion that the growing numbers of precarious workers are “too hard to organize.” That was not Marx’s view when he wrote in 1848: “The increasing improvement of machinery, ever more rapidly developing, makes [workers’] livelihood more and more precarious.”Marx saw the working class as the only class that could put an end to class exploitation and lay the foundation for a new society where human needs come first.We need to turn our face to the billions who comprise our class. Regular monthly Solidarity Days — and showing solidarity whenever and wherever it’s needed — can move us forward.As Eleanor Marx said, “We must speak for the cause daily, and [so] make the men, and especially the women that we meet, come into the ranks to help us.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Sigma Nu commits to diversity, inclusion

first_imgprintSigma Nu welcomes a new pledge class of 108 young men.Sigma Nu wanted to be an exceptional chapter from the moment it was accepted onto campus.The fraternity recently finished its first recruitment at TCU, where it sought out members who fit the Sigma Nu ideals: love, honor and truth.“Regardless of skin color, nation of origin, sexual orientation, religious background – if you ascribe to our values, you make good grades and you’re really involved on campus, we want to talk to you,” said Alex Taylor, the director of expansion and recruitment for Sigma Nu.The group committed itself to diversity of membership during recruitment.“Inclusivity and diversity are something we’re placing a lot of importance on,” Taylor said. “When it comes to that you have to be intentional in reaching out to people that have not typically been included.”The current pledge class has three countries represented and is made up of white, African-American, Latino and Asian members, as well has having three members whom identify as homosexual, according to Mike Dilbeck, the chapter adviser and chairman of the alumni advisory board.“We have to show that we can be a fully functioning partner in the community without being so different that people can’t relate to us,” Dilbeck said. “But we can also show that we can honor people for who they are and still be a unique experience that excels in all other areas. That’s our challenge.”Sigma Nu brought on Timeka Gordon, the assistant director of Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services, as its inclusivity adviser. This is the first time this position has been created for a fraternity at TCU.Gordon said that she encouraged Sigma Nu to do something different during their recruitment process. “Hopefully by them being inclusive, other organizations will see that and consider being inclusive too,” Gordon said.Gordon added that she believes the commitment to diversity will be a large factor in their success on campus.“What will continue to make Sigma Nu a great organization will be when you value diversity and inclusion,” Gordon said. “Regardless of the color of someone’s skin, a man who believes in the values of Sigma Nu is what makes a good member.”Brendan Daly, a senior new member of the fraternity, said he thinks Sigma Nu will be a welcome addition in TCU Greek life.“Sigma Nu is filling a niche in Greek life that wasn’t available before,” Daly said. “It’s going to be an organization that’s going to bring some balance back as a whole.”Chancellor Victor Boschini, who pledged Sigma Nu as an undergraduate, says that he believes Sigma Nu’s mission will resonate well on TCU’s campus.“Both groups espouse very similar values,” Boschini wrote in an email. “So it should be a perfect fit.” Twitter Jocelyn Sitton ReddIt OPINION: Brite Divinity students’ response to Ben Shapiro event Jocelyn Sitton Jocelyn Sitton Fall semester brings new assistant vice chancellor for public safety, assistant chief of police Jocelyn is a senior journalism, political science and French major from Nashville, Tennessee.
