KCS-content Monday 11 October 2010 9:04 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Ladbrokes, Britain’s biggest listed bookmaker, got an earnings boost from the soccer World Cup and the company added yesterday that it was on track to meet full-year targets, sending its shares higher.Operating profit for the three months to 30 September rose 128 per cent from a year ago to £51.1m. The World Cup resulted in a surge in business, with revenue rising 12 per cent, while the company also lowered its operating costs. Ladbrokes is the latest gambling company to have reported an upbeat business outlook.In August, rival William Hill said it was on track to meet full year-expectations after reporting higher first-half earnings, while earlier this month Rank forecast a full-year performance around the top end of analysts’ expectations as it posted higher third-quarter revenue.“We see some cyclical recovery potential in retail, some catch-up potential relative to William Hill and reasonable long-term growth potential in online,” Morgan Stanley analysts said in a research note. Morgan Stanley kept an “equal-weight” rating on Ladbrokes shares.In August, new Ladbrokes’ chief executive Richard Glynn restored the dividend and unveiled a management shake-up along with a deal to buy gaming machines for Ladbrokes’ outlets. Glynn said Ladbrokes remained interested in the privatisation of state-owned betting firm the Tote, but it was not a top priority.

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The global pandemic has brought UK biotech shares into the spotlight. And I’ve been looking around the sector to see if there are any I might want to buy now. Some are almost certainly overpriced. But there are good companies out there that I might buy on any future dips.I’ve recently examined e-Therapeutics. The company develops software-based drugs assessment technology. For its new pandemic project, the firm aims to “identify approved and known drugs that could rapidly be repositioned for the treatment of Covid-19.” Anything that speeds up that process could be in great demand in the future. But with the shares up 1,000% in two years, it’s expensive and not a UK biotech share I’d buy 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…Another soaring Covid-related share priceAvacta Group shares are up over 800% over two years too and, again, I think that’s too rich for now. But I expect better buying opportunities in the future. It’s another company whose technology I like. It appears to have one of the best Covid-19 lateral flow tests, which it hopes will be on the market very soon. With an increasing number of competing products though, and with the rapid pace of development in the field, I’m waiting to see what the next few months bring.A fishy UK biotech shareUK biotech shares are pretty much dominated by coronavirus research at the moment. So how about Benchmark Holdings as an alternative? Forget viruses, Benchmark is into fish. The company researches fish genetics for improving strains and raising disease resistance. And it has divisions focusing on specialised foods and treatments for aquatic diseases.The share price hasn’t done much over the past five years, but it’s been picking up since the start of 2020. The downside though is that Benchmark isn’t currently profitable. But I’m putting it on my watchlist as a potential buy, and I’ll do some more research.There’s another UK biotech share that piques my interest, and it’s another that’s not doing Covid stuff. It’s still medical though, and researches treatments for diseases that affect the brain, immune system and gut. I’m talking of PureTech Health, and I see its structure as helping alleviate risk. PureTech does some of its own research, but it’s also a stakeholder in the Founded Entities group of nine companies involved in complementary research. We’re looking at a somewhat elevated share price, mind. PureTech is up 180% over five years, but it has been dipping of late. It’s definitely another I’m watching.An unmissable candidate?No list of UK biotech shares would be complete without Oxford Biomedica. Yes, we’re back to a company involved in Covid research — it played a big part in developing the AstraZeneca vaccine. But the company partners big pharma companies in research into other gene and cell-based therapies. The shares are up only a modest 49% over the past two years, so we’re not seeing the same pandemic-driven spike that’s pushed some to stratospheric levels.I like the look of all these companies, though I’m not sure I’d buy any right now, especially not the really big climbers. But I’d like to add a biotech stock to my portfolio, and I’m watching all of them.

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The VOICE of InspirationBy Don LindseyApril 21st is a special day for our family because my father and middle son share a birthday. This year my dad will turn 86 and our son will turn 15. While I look forward to the celebration aspect of their day (because who doesn’t love ice cream and cake?), I am also finding that I’m feeling very grateful for having these two gentlemen in my life.My earliest memories of my dad all involve learning some sort of lesson. He was constantly teaching, pointing things out to me and encouraging me to learn from my mistakes. Sometimes it was school related, and other times it was sports related, but no matter what the topic of conversation was, he wanted to make sure that I was learning as much as possible.I wish that I could say that I followed all his advice to the letter, but truthfully, I didn’t listen very often and would always end up wishing that I had. I am happy to report now, however, that a lot of what he taught me are things that I apply to being a dad myself. I’ve taken his lessons and fused it together with my mistakes so that my children can both learn from those mistakes and take away my father’s wisdom with them. Having him and my mother living with us now is a wonderful thing and part of that is having the ability to lean on them for advice in the parental department.When I think of my stepson, I immediately think that time flies by way too quickly. It was a little under 7 years ago that I first met this young man and as soon as I was introduced to him, I was amazed to find out that he has a very investigative mind that is always looking for answers to all kinds of questions. I was also impressed with his desire to be helpful and to make folks happy. I’ve seen him grow up a lot in the last 6 and a half years literally as he is as tall as I am now, but he’s kept that kind soul and the thirst for knowledge that he’s always had.Whether he’s taking things apart to see how they work or buying me a video game that he thinks I’ll enjoy with his own money, I see the qualities in him that I didn’t have or even understand until I was much older. I cherish our talks on everything from politics to games to pretty much anything. He continues to be one of the most intelligent people I know and I’m very grateful that I get to watch that intelligence cultivate daily.You would think that having to share a birthday would be a bit of a bummer, but we have a couple of those dueling birthdays and we have a lot of fun with them. On the day that I’m writing this my dad and son have their celebrations going on and while the double cake and ice cream will be awesome, I’ll also be celebrating the gratitude of having these two guys as important pieces of my life.

As your father and mother has taught you now it is your turn to pass on their wisdom. I miss my father and mother so very much.

However, under no circumstances can the workers resort to violence to further their cause as the same would infringe the rights of the concerned organization to carry on their business. The remarks come in a writ petition filed by Bharat Serum Vaccines Limited, against intimidatory tactics used by some of its employees and the Trade Union, after they were transferred to a unit out of the State. A Single Bench of Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan V. observed, “There cannot be any doubt that the workers have the right to resort to strike or dharna to effectively bargain with the management and to ensure that unfair labour practices are avoided. However, in the guise of a strike, the union leaders as well as the striking workers cannot resort to strong arm tactics and violence to intimidate and force the management to succumb to their demands.” Background It was the Petitioner’s case that in the month of October, 2020, on account of administrative reasons as well as business exigencies, they had to redeploy their Territory Branch Managers to other parts of the country. They submitted that the service conditions clearly state that the employees are transferable, and most of the employees accepted the transfer and joined the respective Stations. However, three employees refused to oblige. Thereafter, with the aid of the Association of Medical and Sales Representatives, the said three employees caused obstruction to the managerial staff, Regional Business Managers and Sales Representatives in carrying on their business. The Petitioners further informed the Court that the Respondents as well as the Union raised an open threat that they will not let the company to carry on its business activities in the State unless the Respondents demands are met with. However, no action was taken by the Police authorities on a complaint lodged in this regard. The Petitioners had therefore sought a direction to the concerned authorities to afford sufficient protection to its managerial/supervisory officers and field staff as to enable them to perform their duties without being obstructed or threatened in any manner. Findings The High Court has made it clear that the right to strike does not mean that a worker is entitled to obstruct the working of an organization. It held that even if the demand of the workers is legitimate, and even if the management do not accede to such legitimate demand, the only option is to resolve the dispute in a manner known to law. It observed, “Under no circumstances can the respondents resort to violence to further their cause. That would infringe the rights of the petitioners to carry on their business.” On this note, the Bench made interim protection granted to the Petitioners, absolute. It further permitted them to approach the jurisdictional police station, if any threat or intimidatory tactics are adopted by the Respondents. Case Title: Bharat Serum Vaccines Ltd. & Ors. v.
