Capital expenditure will hit £600m this year, United Utilities said, though the firm said it is unlikely to meet its leak targets thanks to the severe weather over Christmas. Last month, Northumbrian Water and Pennon had also said trading in the second-half had been in line with estimates, despite the snowy conditions. Shares in United Utilities closed up 0.9 per cent yesterday at 584.5p, valuing the firm at £1.99bn.

3 simple steps I’d take today to beat this FTSE 100 stock market crash

first_img Enter Your Email Address Investing after the FTSE 100 has experienced one of its fastest and most severe market crashes of all time can be a challenging task. However, focusing your capital on companies with solid balance sheets may increase your chances of overcoming near-term risks to benefit from a potential long-term recovery.Furthermore, buying a diverse range of stocks with defensive characteristics, or operate in sectors that could recover more quickly than others, could lead to a stronger performance from your portfolio in the long term.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…Balance sheet strengthCompanies with strong balance sheets could have a significant advantage over their peers in the current economic environment. Put simply, they may be better able to survive a period of lower sales if they have modest debt and a large amount of cash.At the present time, it’s unclear how the economy will perform over the coming months. There could be a fast recovery, or a prolonged recession. Therefore, purchasing stocks that are very likely to survive a worst-case scenario could be a logical move. They may even be able to gain market share at the expense of weaker rivals. They’re those who struggle to service their debt or cover their costs due to weaker balance sheets.Defensive appealCompanies that have defensive characteristics have been relatively unpopular among investors in recent years. Investors have preferred to buy cyclical companies that have a higher dependence on the performance of the economy. This has been understandable, since the world economy has experienced a decade-long period of growth.Looking ahead, the prospects for the world economy are now more uncertain than they have been since the last recession in 2008/2009. As such, buying stocks that have less dependence on the wider economy’s performance could prove to be a shrewd move. They may face lower share price declines in the short run. There’s also a better chance they’ll deliver profit growth and rising dividends over the coming years.DiversificationAnother simple step to help you maximise your returns following the FTSE 100’s market crash is to diversify across a wide range of stocks. At the present time it’s unclear which sectors and countries will be worst hit by coronavirus. As such, buying a limited number of stocks that trade in a small range of industries and locations may well be a risky move.A more logical step is to buy companies that operate across different regions, as well as across a range of sectors. This will reduce your reliance on a specific geographical area or sector. It will also lower your overall risks.This could lead to higher returns in the long run. It may aslo increase your capacity to use lower FTSE 100 share prices following the market crash to your advantage.

AMA offer telephone Gift Aid conversion service to charities

first_img Howard Lake | 15 June 2005 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AMA’s campaign commenced in mid-May with a large-scale mail shot. Damian Hanna, Charity Services Manager at AMA said: “We can offer a valuable lifeline to time pressed fundraisers. We appreciate charities would like the chance to talk with their supporters and discuss Gift Aid, but this is not always possible. “Commissioning AMA relieves this pressure and enables charities to benefit from our extensive knowledge of the charity sector. Our operators understand the need for sensitivity in such campaigns.” AMA charity services are encouraging charities to contact supporters for Gift Aid declarations via the telephone.The Northern Ireland-based contact centre has worked with various charities in order to claim Gift Aid from those eligible, and in turn has reclaimed what it says are “valuable lost funds” on their behalf. AMA argues that making such personal contacts need not be a costly and time consuming experience.The Institute of Fundraising estimated that in 2003/2004 an additional £900 million could have been raised if all charity contributions were Gift Aided. Charities are aware that they can claim back Gift Aid for all donations made since April 2000. However, AMA recognise that busy fundraising divisions are often under pressure, and they quite simply may not get the opportunity to contact supporters themselves.

The Sun has launched a fitness-themed social media campaign in aid of Brain Tumour Research in memory of Nicki Waterman, the newspaper’s fitness expert.Celebrities including Kate Thornton, Ben Shephard, Emma Bunton, Jade Jones, Edith Bowman, Denise Van Outen and Rob Delaney have already posted their #SweatySelfie on social media, and urged their followers to do the same.The sun is encouraging the public to take a photo of themselves getting sweaty doing some exercise, and to post their #SweatySelfie online and text SNAP53 £3 to 70070 to donate to Brain Tumour Research.Waterman died on 11 August following her diagnosis of a glioblastoma (GBM) brain tumour, the most aggressive and deadly form of the disease, just 15 months ago. She had been a passionate campaigner for the charity Brain Tumour Research and her dying wish had been for her children to continue to fundraise and support the charity to help find a cure for brain tumours.The campaign aims to raise £1 million.Nicki Waterman’s daughter, Alex, said in The Sun:“We now want to make her proud and raise as much money as we can — and nothing is more appropriate than fundraising by getting people moving. Just one per cent of the Government’s annual spend goes on brain tumour research. But with YOUR help, you could help us smash our £1 million target. That would be enough to run one of Brain Tumour Research’s centres for an entire year, helping scientists make positive steps towards a cure. Mummy loved the sweaty selfie idea and cried when I told her that’s what we wanted to do.”Launched on 23 August, the campaign generated nearly 700 donations in the first two days, with the family’s Just Giving page raising almost £3,000 in that period. As of yesterday the total had reached £4,145.98.Sue Farrington Smith, Chief Executive of Brain Tumour Research, said: Advertisementcenter_img Here’s how your #sweatyselfie can help raise funds for brain tumour research in memory of Nicki Waterman pic.twitter.com/i0QbjhlEyN— Health & Fitness (@HandFmagazine) August 23, 2016 Howard Lake | 1 September 2016 | News  127 total views,  1 views today The Sun launches #SweatySelfie campaign “Nicki did so much to raise awareness of brain tumours and the need for research funding when she originally told her story in The Sun.

I introduced the Veterans Education Counseling Act to ensure that veterans are informed about and have access to the educational benefits they have earned. Explaining the educational counseling program before veterans apply for benefits and moving the application process online will help veterans make the right choice for their lives and their future,” said Congresswoman Chu.Right now, the Educational Counseling program is underutilized, and many veterans applying for benefits are not aware that they are eligible for educational counseling. The Veterans Education Counseling Act will ensure that every veteran is aware of these benefits, and updates the counseling process, allowing for online enrollment in educational counseling through the eBenefits portal.
