Should I buy Tesco shares or Sainsbury?

first_img Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. See all posts by Royston Roche The UK stock market is performing well this year. The FTSE 100 index is up about 15% in the past year. In fact, most of the stocks I reviewed have performed even better than the index. I prefer to invest in good individual stocks that I think can outperform the market. I have compared two leading retail supermarket chains, and I believe Tesco (LSE: TSCO) shares are a better buy for my portfolio.Tesco and Sainsbury’s financial analysisTesco’s fiscal year 2021 (53-week) revenue fell by 0.4% to £57.9bn. However, group sales excluding VAT, fuel, and adjusted to remove the additional trading week, rose 7.1% to £53.4bn. Sainsbury‘s (LSE: SBRY) group revenue fell by 0.3% to £32.3bn. However, retail revenue (which excludes VAT and fuel ) was flat at £28.6bn. So, Tesco fairs better over here. In addition, its marketing strategies, like the Clubcard benefits, are driving growth.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…Tesco’s pre-tax profit fell by 20% to £825m. One was the reasons for the drop was due to Covid-19 costs. Management believes that most of these costs are non-repetitive, and they expect a strong recovery in the profits. Sainsbury reported a pre-tax loss of £261m compared to a pre-tax profit of £255m for the previous year. It incurred Covid-19 costs of £485m. So Tesco is a better choice even here.Tesco shares are trading at a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 30.72 compared to the five-year average of 50.35. Sainsbury is trading at a P/E ratio of 36.02 when compared to the historical average of 30.69. Tesco is trading at a price-sales (P/S) ratio of 0.39 when compared to the five-year average of 0.32. In comparison, Sainsbury is trading at a P/S ratio of 0.20 when compared to its historical average of 0.21. I believe Tesco has an advantage.Some of the risks to consider Every investment will have some risks. Tesco and Sainsbury are both operating in the highly competitive retail sector. They have have to compete with Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, and Asda. Discount retailers like Aldi and Lidl will also put pressure on their margins. More people prefer online purchases. So, companies have to invest in digitalisation, which requires capital investments. This reduces a company’s cash flows and profitability in the near term. This could negatively impact both Tesco and Sainsbury share prices.Finally, both companies have benefitted from the lockdown as they could operate as essential services. People also had more money to spend on groceries, which they would otherwise spend on leisure. Now with the reopening, that spending could once again be spread across various sectors. This could put a dent in revenue for these companies.My preference is Tesco shares’Tesco is a bigger company than Sainsbury. It’s a market leader in the UK grocery industry and has been able to increase its market share. Personally, I visit Tesco more often than Sainsbury to make purchases. Its revenue growth is better and it is also more profitable. So, I prefer Tesco shares to Sainsbury.

Falls Church Anglicans appeal to state Supreme Court

first_imgFalls Church Anglicans appeal to state Supreme Court [Episcopal News Service] The last of seven breakaway congregations that had legal disputes with the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and the Episcopal Church has sought permission to appeal a judge’s order that it return control of certain church property to the diocese.The Falls Church Anglican Church, as the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA) congregation is known, filed its appeal petition June 1.It is contesting Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Randy I. Bellows’ March 1 order that it return to the diocese the parish’s real property, approximately $2.8 million contributed by its members prior to 2007, and most of its tangible personal property such as bibles, hymnals and furniture.Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli also on June 1 filed a brief in support of the church’s request for review of the trial court’s treatment of donations. Cuccinelli says in the brief that he was entering the case “to protect the public interest in honoring the wishes of donors to charitable institutions.”Bellows’ order was meant to enforce his Jan. 10 opinion in which he said that some personal property, including monetary gifts, given to the congregations prior to January 31, 2007, belongs to the diocese.Bellows’ ruling allowed the CANA congregations to retain some restricted funds over which they have no discretion and that do not benefit the local congregation, the diocese or the Episcopal Church.In May diocesan Secretary Henry D.W. Burt wrote to diocesan members expressing “disappointment” that the diocese had not been able to reach a final settlement with Falls Church Anglican and predicting that the congregation might seek to appeal. He noted that the other six CANA congregations had one by one agreed to return the church property, including personal property and Episcopal funds due the Diocese of Virginia, and to withdraw their appeal efforts. Burt outlined in his letter a schedule that anticipates the Virginia Supreme Court deciding whether to take the appeal in the fall.In a press release issued the day of its appeal petition, Falls Church Anglican left the door open to negotiation, but placed the burden on the diocese for presenting what it called “an equitable out-of-court resolution.”The Rev. Dr. John Yates II, rector of the Falls Church Anglican, told his congregation May 8 that in order to appeal the church had to deposit $2.8 million with the court. The money, which includes the disputed amount plus $122,400 of interest for nine months, will be held until the appeal is settled.The state Supreme Court said in a June 2010 decision that Bellows erred in an earlier ruling when he said that the breakaway congregations involved in the cases were entitled under a Civil War-era statute to retain all the parishes’ real and personal property when they left the Episcopal Church and joined another denomination. The Supreme Court held that that statute did not apply. Bellows’ Jan. 10 order resolved the dispute in favor of the diocese and the Episcopal Church on grounds other than the statute.Yates said the $2.8 million bond “has drained the specially designated accounts for all sorts of ministries and means that we are now basically in a week-to-week situation financially,” adding “we have some ministries on hold and have cut back in other areas during this period as we learn just what our expenses will be.”Yates wrote that “over the next six months of transition, we have almost no resources and are dependent upon God to provide for our church.” He urged members to tithe and announced a campaign for them to increase their pledging.The Anglican congregation vacated the Falls Church property on May 13 and is worshiping in a variety of locations. The continuing congregation, which is now known as Falls Church Episcopal returned to the church campus on May 26. The diocese is renting the Falls Church rectory to Yates at “a fair rent” for up to a year so that he can decide where to relocate his home, Burt said.The rectory rental is one of what Burt called “other key side agreements with real and positive consequences for the people affected” between the diocese and the Anglican congregation. They include the return of the Falls Church Day School, which serves more than 200 children, to Falls Church Episcopal oversight and Bishop Shannon Johnston’s decision to give the Rev. Cathy Tibbetts, Falls Church Episcopal priest-in-charge, “authority to respond generously to requests for weddings and funerals in the Falls Church by members of the Falls Church Anglican.”Meanwhile, Burt reported in his letter that “each of the continuing congregations remains profoundly committed to its mission and ministry” and is “experiencing significant growth.” However, the letter notes that in some instances “no continuing congregation exists” and reports that so-called Dayspring teams “are considering a number of transformational mission efforts.”Dayspring is an “integrated effort to discern and implement vision and strategy in response to the return of Episcopal properties to the mission of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Virginia,” according to the diocese.“There is need to step back and take careful consideration of the options and possibilities that lie before us” as properties are returned and congregations return home, the diocese said.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Farrell,Thank you for speaking candidly. It is unfortunate that a number of people chose to leave, unlawfully hold church property, and refuse to recognize the movement of the Spirit in our midst. I don’t believe that the “people are pathetic”, but I do believe that the whole situation is “pathetic”. If a parish decides it wants to leave the TEC that should be their full right, however, you have to do it like any other upstart group…from the ground up! You don’t get to keep the beautiful buildings, the sacred vessels, vestments, bank accounts etc. You have to cut your losses and start out on a new trek, and make your own way. Unfortunately, we cannot ask the founding members of the Church (who we EPISCOPALIAN) if they would still want to be Episcopalian. We can’t ask all those generations who helped build an EPISCOPAL Church if they are upset with the direction of the Church. We just can’t do that…therefore, it would have to be assumed that the Church started out Episcopalian, and it must forever remain so. I applaud TEC for standing up against conservative groups that would bully others into accepting their own vision of the church, version of the “truth”, and interpretation of scripture.It’s unfortunate that things have come to this, but the alternative isn’t acceptable either.There are many a people who wring their hands at how “hopeless” the situation is for the TEC, but I don’t believe it’s as bleak as some would have us to believe. I attend a church that is in the top 3 Episcopal parishes for Sunday attendance. We currently have about 2,500 members, 5 Eucharist Services on Sunday where well over 200 attend EVERY SUNDAY, and Compline Sunday evening. We have morning and evening prayer daily. Membership at our parish is soaring. Yes, we are in a downtown urban setting … that may account for some of it. However, I come from a rural parish and I can honestly say that even with the changes in the Church that rural parish is still trucking on. Most of the membership decline there has been due to death. So, while there may be several thousand who have left the TEC … it’s not as bleak as others would have us to believe.We will move forward … we will progress. Some will be with us, and others will be against us, but the Gospel will still move forward in the love and acceptance of Jesus Christ.

Conservative and Progressive. After all, no matter what side of the cross we lie (Left or Right), there is always room in the middle. We’ll have to get along in Heaven, might as well “test try” it down on Earth. Doug Desper says: The Rev. John T. Farrell says: Comments are closed.

Submit a Press Release June 24, 2012 at 2:38 am If it were not for the Episcopal Church I would not attend any at all. I would study the Bible at home and just merely be “spiritual.” That is where the whole church world is heading if it does not get away from far right wing inspired spiritual abuse. So instead of saying it is the “gay agenda” seeking to bring down the church. Consider first your own attitudes and seek to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.The Episcopal Church could be more like there brothers and sisters in the Catholic Church and sweep instances of sexual abuse under the rug. The Episcopal Church could be anxiously paying people off to be quiet about sexual misconduct. Thankfully, that is not happening here. Instead it is taking a stand for love and justice just as Jesus Christ (Love your neighbor as yourself. Judge not, lest ye also be judged.) would do if he were in flesh and on Earth.

Please cease and desist from your looting and intransigence. The property belongs to the diocese and the national church, not to the self-appointed bunch of bandits who think they know it all better.

But it cannot take the property. That said, these cases should be settled in one of the following 3 ways. 1. Walk away. 2. Rent the property at market value. 3. Buy the property at market value. Rector Belleville, IL Curate Diocese of Nebraska June 8, 2012 at 10:07 am Rev. Farrell,To say that “these people are pathetic” continues the dismissive attitude that accompanied the quickening downward spiral in our Church since 2003. The concerns of these and other thousands of members was dismissed cavalierly as “the few who don’t want to be with us”. Now that we are losing dioceses, number below 2 million, can’t attract half of that to show up, are shuttering cathedrals and seminaries, one would hope that dismissing the valid critiques and concerns of the membership would not continue to be the order of the day. It’s their money. Let ’em try. If they don’t win it doesn’t affect TEC or your church in particular. If they do win, maybe it is the wake-up call that this self-crippling Church needs to get back on track. The Pension officials get it. General Convention leaders are waking up to it: We are dying out fast, and can’t sustain ourselves, and I would add that it is mainly because Christian America isn’t buying what we are offering and what we have committed to for a generation: indiscriminate theological faith and practice – something that has absolutely not worked in any church, or diocese where it has been dominantly taught or practiced.

Photo: Noé Montes/Faith & Leadership[Faith & Leadership] Marcy Dyment arrived for Christmas Day breakfast at All Saints Episcopal Church on a peaceful, convivial kind of morning in Pasadena, California.With her dog, Bullet, in tow, the 57-year-old former elementary school teacher chatted with parish leadership and about a dozen unhoused people from the church’s Safe Haven Bridge to Housing program.She and the other people gathered there were treated to packaged McDonald’s meals, lined up on socially distanced tables in accordance with coronavirus protocols.It was a reunion of sorts for Dyment, who had moved into permanent housing in December after three years of living on the streets. Dyment said she is grateful for the effort the church is making at a difficult and complicated time in a situation that is often messy and imperfect.“They’re just extremely tolerant, wonderful people,” she said.Dyment is just one of the now-housed folks who have been helped by All Saints’ Safe Haven Bridge to Housing, a ministry of the church launched in October 2020.Although a small number of unhoused people have lived on the All Saints campus for years, the church was overwhelmed with people needing shelter during the early days of the pandemic, when local facilities cut capacity and nearby City Hall closed.Through trial and error, planning and reaching out to community partners, All Saints has worked to create a manageable system in which 12 people without shelter can stay on church grounds and receive support services.Church leaders hope to expand this model to other congregations to create a network of support for the unhoused without overly taxing any one church.It’s particularly important to them that the model be workable for smaller and less wealthy congregations than the 3,000-member All Saints, said the Rev. Mike Kinman, the church’s rector.The process has not been easy, and All Saints leadership has had to pivot. But they are clear that it’s been worth it — not just because of what the church can now offer people who lack housing but also because of the community it has nurtured.Read the entire story at Faith & Leadership here.

To generate an open space all non-bearing walls were removed and a functional 20 square meter core with the staircase, bathroom, kitchenette, fireplace as well a sauna were installed in the center of both floors. The space can be zoned by simple transparent PVC curtains according to the actual climate needs. In the summer time the curtains are retreated only to a 10 square meter bedroom in the 230 square meter open loft space, while in winter the heated area makes only 60 square meters of the whole floor area which includes moving the bed closer to the open fire.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricThe gable roof, made of corrugated asbestos plates, was removed and replaced by a flat concrete slab that structurally allowed big openings in the walls. These, up to five meter, large windows on the north and south facade, are the result of the collective work by friends hammering away the wall to create big openings which provide a scenic view over the nearby lake.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerOriginally published on May 10, 2015Project gallerySee allShow lessNasu Tepee / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAPSelected ProjectsHouse 77 / Aunic ArquitetosSelected Projects Share CopyHouses, Offices, Adaptive Reuse•Potsdam, Germany Year:  Antivilla / Brandlhuber+Emde, BurlonSave this projectSaveAntivilla / Brandlhuber+Emde, Burlon 2014 ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeBrandlhuber+Emde, BurlonOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOfficesRefurbishmentAdaptive reusePotsdamSchneiderBrandlhuber+ EmdeIcebergOfficesHousesRemodelsOn InstagramOn FacebookGermanyPublished on November 30, 2019Cite: “Antivilla / Brandlhuber+Emde, Burlon” 30 Nov 2019.

Two Afghan TV stations banned from broadcasting in Baluchistan

first_img March 17, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two Afghan TV stations banned from broadcasting in Baluchistan Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists News RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned Pakistan’s ban on two Afghan cable TV stations, Tolo TV and Ariana TV, broadcasting in the southwestern province of Baluchistan and called on the information minister to see it was lifted at once.The Pakistan broadcasting authority forbade local cable operators on 16 March to retransmit the two stations, which had suggested that a recent suicide attack on an Afghan politician in Kabul may have involved the Pakistani intelligence service. “These media outlets were simply doing their job of informing the public,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Press freedom cannot be at the mercy of political tensions between Islamabad and Kabul.” Tolo TV was winner of the 2005 Reporters Without Borders – Fondation de France prize.Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) official Abdul Jalal Khan accused the stations of using “poisonous and undiplomatic” language and said they were banned for spreading “negative propaganda against Pakistan.”Pemra spokesman Mohammed Shahid refused to confirm the ban but said the stations had not applied for permission to broadcast in Pakistan. News Help by sharing this information April 21, 2021 Find out more to go further News Tolo TV said the station had always tried to report regional, nation and international events in a balanced way and would continue to put out impartial, good-quality news even if it concerned local authorities. The privately-owned station, set up in October 2004, has done wide-ranging investigative reporting, unlike government-run stations.
