The company posted a 33 per cent increase in overall net profit for the year ending 31 January to €1.73bn (£1.5bn).Sales worldwide soared by 13 per cent to €12.53bn, Inditex said in a statement, with the fastest growing revenue source in Asia.The clothing giant announced that it was looking to open between 460 and 500 stores this year to add to its 3,044 stores in 77 countries.Plans include at least 120 new stores in China, where it already owns 143 outlets, around half of which opened during 2010. Asia saw one of the most rapid rates of expansion last year with the group’s retail presence there growing to 645 stores, accounting for 15 per cent of sales.The group, whose other brands include youth label Bershka and upmarket Massimo Dutti, will also move into new markets such as Australia and South Africa this year as well as launching online Zara stores in both Japan and the United States. “Our priority remains to focus our growth in Europe and Asia. 2011 will be a year of strong acceleration in China,” said Inditex chief executive Pablo Isa, who took over the post in July from Amancio Ortega, the group’s founder and Spain’s richest man.“Asia should continue gaining around three percentage points per year in terms of its contribution to sales.” Shares in the company rose by five per cent in Madrid after the annual figures were released. whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 23 March 2011 8:13 pmlast_img read more

The fact that we’ve just experienced the worst quarter for stock markets since 1987 makes it even more relevant.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…The most important thingForget all the fancy money-making strategies you’ve heard. To really increase your wealth, it’s more important to understand the concept of ‘compound growth’.We experience compounding in everyday life, usually without even recognising it.Suppose you want to get fit and decide to dedicate 10 minutes a day to exercising. Initially, progress is slow. Over time, however, workouts become easier and your body can do more.The reason for this is simple: every bout of exercise builds on those previously completed. Compounding can work against us too. Allowing ourselves an extra portion of something calorific at dinner might not feel wrong at the time. The result of doing so many times over many evenings, however, eventually shows on our waistline. The little things we regularly do add up.So, it can make me rich?Yes. Compounding is the not-so-secret sauce that can also make you wealthy. Imagine investing £20 in the stock market every month (or £240 per year) for the next 30 years. Over this period, markets rise in value and you re-invest any dividends you receive.Although the actual rate of return will vary from year to year, let’s say your portfolio returns 10% per annum. So, after one year, your money increases in value by 10%. In the second year, the money you had after the first year increases by 10% and so on. After 30 years, you’d have nearly £40,000. It’s grown by so much because you’ve earned interest on interest every year. Your money has compounded. Remember, this is the hypothetical result of investing just £20 per month. Put away £50 a month and you’ll have almost £99,000 based on my figures. £100 a month will give you over £197,000. It’s not magic, it’s simple maths. The only caveat is that there’s no guarantee the stock market will return that 10% average per year. It could be lower or higher, depending on what you choose to invest in and how those investments perform. Dedication requiredCompounding can make you rich, but it still requires two things from you: commitment and patience.Just as practicing the violin once every year won’t lead to any meaningful gains in terms of ability, saving ‘when you feel like it’ is unlikely to substantially increase your wealth.This is why setting up a direct debit to take even a small amount of money from your bank account to your ISA every month without fail is crucial. By automating your savings, you take out the need to be motivated to save.Second, learning to delay gratification is vital. Warren Buffett’s wealth has increased massively in later life because he recognised that results aren’t immediate. He continued to invest, through good times and bad. Which brings me back to the start. Having the courage to invest through market wobbles is desirable since it allows you to buy more when prices are depressed. The more stock you accumulate at lower prices, the greater the eventual upside will be.Forget the market crash. Remember the power of compound growth.

A 7%-yielding FTSE 100 dividend stock I’m convinced will help me retire in luxury

The FTSE 100 has recovered strongly from its stock market crash at the beginning of the year. However, despite this performance, some of the index’s constituents continue to offer value.There’s one company, in particular, with a dividend yield of more than 7% that may be worth buying for your portfolio today. 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 dividends on offer British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) is a leading FTSE 100 income stock. It’s also one of the few blue-chip companies that has stood by its dividend in the coronavirus crisis. Its latest trading update shows that, despite the global pandemic, sales have held firm. Nonetheless, management also warned the near-term outlook for the business is highly uncertain. Indeed, the company has already had to revise growth guidance lower once already this year. It’s now expecting full-year revenue growth of 1-3% and profit growth in the mid-single-digit range.That’s disappointing, but it’s significantly better than most of the FTSE 100 firm’s blue-chip peers, which are forecasting a sales decline. Moreover, the group has a strong balance sheet and an established position in the global tobacco market. That suggests it could be in an excellent place to recover when growth returns to the worldwide economy. The FTSE 100 dividend champion may also be able to take market share from weaker competitors who haven’t been so lucky. British American has a history of doing just that. Over the past six years, it has reported earnings growth of around 9% per annum. Organic expansion, market share growth, and acquisitions have all contributed to this performance. As the company’s bottom line has expanded, it’s also been able to grow its dividend payout. The per-share dividend has more than doubled over the past decade to just over 200p today. Only a handful of other FTSE 100 businesses have produced the same rate of dividend growth over the same time frame. So, while British American may face more uncertainty in the near term, over the long run, the company should prosper. That suggests now might be a good time to snap up the shares while they trade at a bargain valuation. Bargain stockDespite the coronavirus crisis, and the impact it’ll have on the FTSE 100’s company’s growth this year, British American is still planning to pay a dividend. After recent declines, the stock supports a dividend yield of around 7.4%. That’s nearly double the FTSE 100 average. On top of this market-beating dividend yield, the shares look cheap. On average, City analysts believe the stock is worth 3,800p. That’s a potential increase of 30% from current levels. The most optimistic forecasts suggest the stock could be worth as much as 4,800p, a rise of 64% from current levels. As such, it appears as if British American has the potential to produce high total returns for investors in the coming years. It offers a combination of income and capital growth few other FTSE 100 companies may be able to provide in the current economic environment.

MacKenzie     Save this picture!© Iain D. MacKenzie This project is the conversion of a late 19th century former grocery warehouse into a 2 level, one bedroom residence. In the mid 20th century it had 35 years of use as an engineering workshop before being converted to an artist’s studio and residence in the 1970s. Save this picture!© Iain D. MacKenzie The property has 2 street frontages, allowing clear separation of pedestrian and vehicle entries. The new front door is located in the former loading dock at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, adjacent to a heritage listed sandstone wall. The entry is defined by a full height steel plate portal, adding to the palimpsest of former window openings and recycled brickwork that make up this façade. Save this picture!© Iain D. MacKenzie Internally a 1.7 metre height difference between the 2 streets is utilised to create the tall volume of the living space, with its’ floor to ceiling wall of books. The kitchen occupies the half level above, overlooking the living area and is screened by a black steel plate structure incorporating a built-in black leather bench seat. The garage opens off the kitchen, with its’ internal dimensions defining the major strategic move within the design. Once the guest bathroom/laundry/storage and the stair opposite were deducted from the internal width, together with the minimum width required for the garage, the remainder was 10 millimetres with which to construct the wall between the garage and stair. This led to the adoption of the 10 millimetre thick steel plate structure that flows through to the entry portals, the kitchen surround and bookcase. Save this picture!© Iain D. MacKenzie All existing structure has been retained, lined and painted white, while all new elements are painted black. This concept is carried through to the black and white rubber flooring. All joinery is finished in black anodised aluminium, including the bathroom on the upper level, which maintains the datum established by the height of the original window openings. The clear glazing above allows light from the new clerestory window to illuminate the formerly dark centre of the deep open planned space. Internally the bathroom is lined with Corian on both walls and floor. Save this picture!© Iain D. MacKenzie The main street façade reinterprets the original but in steel rather than timber, with the address spelt out in water jet cut steel letters reflecting the original engineering workshop signage. The contrast between the precision of the steelwork and the patina of the original brickwork summarises the transformation from 19th to 21st centuries and from industrial to residential.

TV reporter Rafed Al Rubaii becomes 67th journalist killed since start of war

first_img News August 30, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 TV reporter Rafed Al Rubaii becomes 67th journalist killed since start of war Follow the news on Iraq RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Organisation News Reporters Without Borders said today it was appalled by the news of the death of Iraqi TV reporter Rafed Al Rubaii, who was covering a pro-Saddam demonstration in Diyala, east of Baghdad, on 27 August when a group of gunmen fired several shots in his direction before making off. A freelance contributor to the Iraqi TV station AL Irakiya, Rubaii died instantly.”This horrible death serves as yet another reminder that Iraq is the deadliest country in the world for journalists,” the press freedom organisation said. “The security situation is so bad that gunmen can kill a journalist at any time of day and night.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Killings like this are compounded by the often arbitrary arrests of journalists by the Iraqi authorities or the US army, as with Reuters TV cameraman Haider Kadhem, who was arrested on 28 August and is still being held by the US military.”Rubaii is the 67th journalist or media assistant to be killed in Iraq since the start of the war in March 2003.
