The Superdry share price rockets 16% higher today! What’s going on?

first_imgThe Superdry share price rockets 16% higher today! What’s going on? Superdry (LSE:SDRY) is a UK clothing brand that has been listed for over a decade. After gaining traction and expanding rapidly, the company has struggled in recent years to remain at the forefront of its industry. This has been reflected in a share price that’s down 77% over a five-year period, although it’s up 131% over 12 months. But today, the Superdry share price has rallied after an update came out for the full-year. Is this the start of a turnaround?Full-year trading updateThe trading update covered the last 12 months, from the end of April 2020. It revealed that revenue fell by 21% to £556.6m from the previous year. I need to wait for the published full-year results to see how this has impacted the bottom line, but I imagine this will lead to a loss for the year.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…After all, the previous year also saw a fall in group revenue of 19.2%, leading to a loss of £166.9m. Although the figure included a large store impairment charge, it would still have generated a loss even without that extra pressure. This followed another loss in 2018, explaining that five-year Superdry share price fall I mentioned earlier.But let’s put that to one side and focus on the most recent trading update. Why did revenue fall? It’s no surprise that the pandemic had a large impact here. Superdry estimated that 39% of store days were lost due to closures. Even with a strengthened online presence, this was the key reason for the negative result.My outlook for the Superdry share priceSo with those lost trading days and the revenue hit, I might wonder why the Superdry share price rallied so much today. But not all of the trading update was negative. in fact, Q4 actually saw small revenue growth of 0.8%, and e-commerce sales also grew in double-digits. CEO Julian Dunkerton said that “our strengthened e-commerce presence has helped mitigate the impact from enforced closures of our stores”. This growth in e-commerce has been seen in other companies as well. For example, I noted the surge in this area when I covered Burberry recently.So the rally in the Superdry share price can be put down to the more optimistic outlook for the company, with the last quarter potentially showing that a corner has been turned. This also ties in with easing lockdown restrictions this month and next month, which should allow Superdry stores (at least in the UK), to trade without hindrance.The company also showed that it has good liquidity, despite the hard times. Net cash came in at £39.4m (vs £36.7m in the previous year).Product initiatives also seem to be working with the company saying its neymar Jr link-up has “resulted in record engagement rates, with two million engagements in the first three weeks across our owned channels”.One risk I see for the Superdry share price is the longer-term downward trend it has seen. For several years, revenue has been falling as consumer demand shifts. Fashion is a fast-paced industry and Superdry doesn’t seem to be the hot brand it once was.So even with a potential good bump from store reopening, I still wouldn’t buy for now. I struggle to see how the share price can regain levels seen in previous years, so will opt out and watch from the sidelines. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

New York Sen. Schumer leads call for federal probe into Florida’s…

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has said New Yorkers fleeing Democratic Gov. Anthony Cuomo’s quarantine restrictions flooded the Sunshine State in March, dramatically swelling the disease’s outbreak in south Florida.Cuomo blamed open “beaches in Florida” for inspiring youthful protesters in New York City to not wear masks.Florida Republican U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, a former two-term Florida governor, vocally has been opposed to a proposed $3 billion COVID-19 bill that includes assistance for state and local governments, which has been referred to as a “blue state bailout.”Cuomo responded by accusing Scott of “playing the American people” by claiming New York receives more than it pays in federal taxes, noting it is among “donor” states that contribute far more in taxes than it receives in federal services.On Monday, the Florida-New York dispute surfaced in the U.S. Senate, when Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate’s minority leader, called on the U.S. Department of Labor to investigate Florida’s much-maligned unemployment system.In a letter to Inspector General Scott Dahl, Schumer joined Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon in requesting an inquiry into U.S. DOL oversight of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), which administers the state’s unemployment system.DEO’s CONNECT unemployment website collapsed in March, when it was deluged by newly jobless applicants, creating a backlog that persists.“While all states have seen record increases in the number of its residents applying for unemployment, Florida’s performance has proved uniquely poor in its abject inability to assist millions of residents who have applied for and continue to await unemployment benefits,” their letter said.Schumer and Wyden maintain despite unemployment claims sharply increasing, “Florida’s Unemployment Trust Fund grew in size between March 1st and April 16th (by nearly $17 million). The most recent data available from the U.S. Treasury Department shows Florida is the only state in the nation whose trust fund gained money during that time period.”DEO’s Reemployment Assistance Claims Dashboard reported Monday that 2.015 of 2.169 million – or 92.5 percent – of “confirmed unique” claims filed by state residents since March 15 had been processed, with 1.248 million – or 92.5 percent – of “eligible claimants” receiving payments totaling $4.619 billion.DEO’s numbers, however, do not include nearly 500,000 people deemed ineligible for state benefits, as well as hundreds of thousands more who are apparently still waiting for claims to be processed.Florida Senate Minority Leader Audrey Gibson posts a daily #PayTheClaimsNow Unemployment Benefits Watch notice. On Monday, “Day 92,” she listed the number of Floridians “still waiting for payment” at 920,504.DeSantis dismissed Schumer’s and Wyden’s concerns about Florida’s unemployment system Monday as “very partisan.”“Are they U.S. Senators from Florida?” DeSantis asked during a news conference in Doral. “I’ve never heard of partisan politics in Washington, D.C., before. Oh, my goodness, can you imagine that?”DeSantis has ordered a state inspector general investigation into the $77 million CONNECT system he inherited from Scott, which he’s described as “designed to fail.”DeSantis has called the CONNECT website, built by DeLoitte Consulting in 2013, “the equivalent of throwing a jalopy into the Daytona 500.”Since March, DeSantis has authorized at least $100 million to upgrade the website, purchased 72 servers, reassigned 2,000 state workers to help DEO and tapped Department of Management Services Secretary Jon Satter to manage it.“It’s going to take time,” DeSantis said Monday of the probe.Meanwhile, DeSantis added, “We’ve really been able to pick this thing off the mat. We’re going to do more.” TAGSfloridaSenator Chuck SchumerThe Center SquareUnemployment System Previous articleFlorida gas prices could soon return to $2 a gallonNext articleWhat else could 2020 bring to Florida?

Daimler Truck AG and Cummins Inc. Announce Global Plan for Medium Duty Commercial Vehicle…

first_img Pinterest Daimler Truck AG and Cummins Inc. Announce Global Plan for Medium Duty Commercial Vehicle Engines Local NewsBusiness Facebook STUTTGART, Germany & COLUMBUS, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 23, 2021– Today, Daimler Truck AG and global power leader and independent engine manufacturer Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced that the companies have signed a memorandum of understanding establishing a global strategic partnership for medium duty engine systems. The companies added that other opportunities for collaboration are also being evaluated. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210223005185/en/ As part of the planned strategic partnership, Cummins will invest in the further development of medium duty engine systems for Daimler Trucks and Buses and the global production and delivery of medium duty engines by Cummins for Daimler Trucks and Buses beginning in the second half of the decade. Martin Daum, Chairman of the Board of Management at Daimler Truck AG and a member of the Board of Management at Daimler AG said, “The memorandum of understanding between Daimler Truck AG and Cummins makes engine production at the Mannheim location fit for the future and at the same time strengthens our competitiveness. With the changeover to Euro VII, we would have to invest considerable resources in the further development of our medium duty engines. We are now freeing up these funds to focus them on the technologies that are crucial to our long-term corporate success in the transformation of our industry.” “We are pleased to announce this important strategic partnership with Daimler to provide the medium duty engine systems for Daimler Trucks and Buses in global markets,” said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO, Cummins Inc. “Our partnership is a terrific opportunity for both companies to be more competitive, drive global innovation, expand offerings to customers and reduce emissions. We are looking forward to working with Daimler on this and exploring other potential opportunities to grow our respective companies. As the leading independent global power solutions provider, Cummins is committed to ensuring any customer anywhere has the right solution, by offering them a broad range of power solutions from advanced diesel, near-zero natural gas, fully electric, hydrogen and other technologies.” Production of medium duty Cummins engines at the Daimler Mannheim plant Cummins Inc. will establish an engine plant within the Mercedes-Benz Mannheim campus, efficiently utilizing existing resources to produce medium duty engines compliant with the Euro VII emissions standard for Mercedes-Benz and ensuring continued joint success in the medium duty vehicle segment. With this strategic partnership, Daimler Truck AG and Cummins will help maintain employment at the Mannheim plant. Cummins will use its existing footprint and strong production and supply chain networks in all other regions for use in other Daimler Trucks’ brands, including those of Daimler Trucks North America. “By signing this memorandum of understanding, we are presenting a clear future perspective for the Mannheim site, which produces medium duty engines today and will continue to do so moving forward. This is good for Mannheim,” says Martin Daum. “This will of course bring some changes to the site. Together with the works council, we will shape the changes in the coming years and develop joint solutions, always keeping the interests of our customers, employees and the company in mind.” Daimler Truck’s focus on alternative drive technologies and heavy-duty commercial vehicle engines Daimler anticipates the partnership with Cummins will enable Daimler to increase and accelerate its development efforts on alternative and emerging technologies, including non-diesel engines. In the future, Daimler Truck AG will focus on the further progression of zero-emission drive technologies, as well as further development of commercial heavy-duty drivetrains. The production of the current medium duty engine generation (MDEG) by Daimler Truck AG will end with the start of production of the Cummins engines at Mannheim. In a next step, the partners will evaluate a broader global strategic cooperation through identifying potential synergies in areas such as powertrain components and engine system components. The Daimler heavy-duty engine platform (HDEP) for the heavy-duty vehicle segment of Daimler Trucks and Buses will remain in the Daimler Truck AG portfolio. The HDEP engine family will continue to be manufactured by the global production network in Mannheim and Detroit, Michigan and fitted in heavy-duty trucks, in touring coaches as well as in third-party products worldwide. About Cummins Inc. Cummins Inc., a global power leader, is a corporation of complementary business segments that design, manufacture, distribute and service a broad portfolio of power solutions. The company’s products range from diesel, natural gas, electric and hybrid powertrains and powertrain-related components including filtration, aftertreatment, turbochargers, fuel systems, controls systems, air handling systems, automated transmissions, electric power generation systems, batteries, electrified power systems, hydrogen generation and fuel cell products.

About the Mercedes-Benz Mannheim plant Mercedes-Benz and Mannheim are linked by a very special history. On January 29, 1886, this is where engineer Carl Benz invented the world’s first automobile with the patent number 37435 – the Benz Patent Motor Car. What is now the Mercedes-Benz Mannheim plant was founded first in Luzenberg, Mannheim-Waldhof in 1908. The site has over 5,000 employees working on the production of engines and associated components for all categories of commercial vehicles worldwide. The plant’s foundry is one of the world’s leading producers of cast-iron vehicle components. In addition, engines for commercial vehicles as well as passenger cars are remanufactured in the “European Center for Reconditioned Engine Production.” In the Competence Center for Zero-Emission Mobility (KEM), the company has also been accompanying the drive systems of the future for all vehicle categories from prototype to series production for over 25 years. Training and securing new talent are also equally important in Mannheim, where more than 11,000 young people have completed their apprenticeships in its over 100 years of operation. Daimler Trucks & Buses Daimler Trucks & Buses is one of the world’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturers, with more than 35 primary locations around the world and approximately 100,000 employees. The company brings together seven vehicle brands under one roof: Mercedes-Benz (light, medium and heavy trucks as well as city, intercity and touring coaches) and Setra (intercity, long-distance and premium coaches) are our traditional European brands; our U.S. brands Freightliner Trucks (trucks in weight classes 5 to 8 for a wide range of commercial vehicle applications), Western Star (heavy trucks for specialized and long-haul transports) and Thomas Built Buses (light to medium duty buses); and our Asian brands Bharat Benz, based in Chennai, India (trucks in the weight classes 10 to 55 t and medium and heavy-duty buses) and FUSO with its headquarters in Japan (trucks and buses for Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Latin America). This allows Daimler Trucks & Buses to offer its customers around the globe a broad spectrum of commercial vehicles, ranging from minibuses to heavy-duty trucks for special-purpose transport applications – in short: products and solutions for everyone who keeps the world moving. Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz laid the foundation for the modern transport industry more than 120 years ago. Over the past decades, Daimler’s truck and bus divisions have consistently set standards for the entire transportation industry – in terms of safety, fuel efficiency and driver and passenger comfort. It is now time for the next evolutionary step: emission-free, automated and connected driving. Daimler Trucks & Buses is working to bring these important technologies to high-volume series production, across brands, divisions and regions. In this way the company intends to take a major step closer to realising its vision of CO2-neutral transport and accident-free driving whilst also contributing to the sustainability of global goods and passenger transport. In 2020, a total of 378,500 trucks and buses were delivered. Revenue was €34.7 billion. EBIT amounted to €525 million.

While an assessment of the route options has been completed and the report will be published in February 2019, a number of possible alternative routes have been suggested for the section linking Inch Island to Fahan as part of the feedback received from the initial consultations.At those consultation events which were held in June 2018, over 200 people attended and numerous written submissions were subsequently received by the project team. A key outcome from that consultation process is that people on the whole are very supportive of the project concept. However, as a result of some of the feedback received regarding the section linking Inch Levels to Fahan village, before finalising the preferred route in this section, the two local authorities have decided to examine and assess some alternative corridors, including those suggested by landowners in their initial feedback, supplementing those routes examined previously in the first phase. Ronan Gallagher, Communications Manager said: ‘following the feedback received, the project team feels it is important to explore fully all possible alternatives. As the alternative options were not originally presented it is now important that we go back to let the wider public have their input on them as well as speaking with people who may have land along one of the new routes.’ He continued: ‘one of our key objectives is to build infrastructure that will encourage people to cycle and walk between Derry and Buncrana, whether it be a local or cross-border journey. The important aspect of the project is to deliver something which is safe, thus encouraging more people to leave the car at home. Whilst there is significant support for the greenway project, we would like to acknowledge some of the genuine concerns raised by landowners in the area, and we will strive to ensure that no matter the preferred route selected, impact on those living in proximity to the developed infrastructure will be minimised.’The new consultation event will be held in Fowler Hall, Tooban, on Thursday 7 February 2019. Additional information on the event will be published in the New Year to coincide with the report that identifies the emerging route for the other sections of the route, namely Derry to Burnfoot and Lisfannon to Buncrana, and the project team will contact those landowners who may be affected by this route in advance of publication of the report.For more information go to www.nwgreenway.com.
