Dell to buy 3PAR for $1.5bn

first_img Tags: NULL Dell plans to buy data storage company 3PAR for $1.15bn (£730m) in cash, expanding its cloud computing business to compete with other technology services companies like IBM.Dell said it would pay $18 a share for 3PAR, an 87 per cent premium over Friday’s closing price. The deal would further expand Dell’s presence in technology services, a business that often yields higher profit margins than personal computers but is increasingly competitive.IBM has been expanding its services business, as have other rivals like Hewlett-Packard and Oracle. They have also been stepping up investment in cloud computing, which enables users to access data and software over the internet without needing to download information.Dell, which bought technology services company Perot Systems last year for $3.9bn, said 3PAR’s technology would help customers reduce data management costs, including hardware and energy consumption.Dell will integrate 3PAR’s products into an existing storage portfolio.

The BT share price is down, so should you snap up its 10% dividend yield?

first_img I reckon we’re in strange times for the FTSE 100 when BT Group (LSE: BT.A) is offering dividend yields as high as 10%. If you’re looking for income from your investments, you might think that’s one to snap up quick. If you invest £1,000 in a stock with an annual yield of 10%, in five years you’ll have £1,600. And in 10, your pot will have reached £2,600. So you might expect investors to be buying the shares, which would push the price back up. And that would reduce the dividend yield to around the long-term average.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…But exactly the opposite is happening. Investors, rather than snagging themselves an income steam of 10% per year, have instead been on a selling spree. BT shares have slumped 33% over the past 12 months, and by 65% in five years.No confidenceThe obvious conclusion is that the markets have little confidence in BT’s high dividends, and a look at forecasts confirms that. Analysts are expecting 15.4p per share for the current year, the same as it’s been for the previous three years after the telecoms giant hiked it to that level in 2017. But they’re predicting a fall to around 11p per share next year, for a cut of nearly 30%.In that, BT is echoing what’s happened to Vodafone before it. For years, Vodafone was offering high yields that weren’t even covered by earnings, and the share price suffered similarly. The company bowed to the inevitable in 2019 and slashed the dividend by 40%. Some people, including me, still think that’s too high and expect further pain for Vodafone shareholders.I think the same is true of BT. The predicted 11p dividend for next year would give shareholders a yield of 7.2%, and that’s still a terrific annual income. It would, after all, still be enough to double that £1,000 investment in 10 years.Further pain?Again, we can only assume investors fear further dividend cuts in the years ahead. I share those fears, and I have to ask two questions. Firstly, why is the BT dividend under pressure?It’s in a very competitive and developing high-tech market and it needs to invest billions to keep up with technology. BT recorded capital expenditure in the first half of the year of approximately £1.9bn, which suggests £3.8bn per year. Against that, dividends are costing the firm around £1bn per year.If there’s enough cash to afford that, fine. But at the Q3 stage at 31 December, BT’s net debt stood at a staggering £18.2bn. That’s 64% worse than a year ago, although some of the increase is due to the move to IFRS 16 accounting standards. And BT is still stumping up pension fund deficit payments too.Buying debtTo put BT’s debt into some kind of perspective, it represents 120% of the company’s entire market capitalisation. So if you buy BT shares, you’re buying more debt than company.Now to my second question. Why do companies pay such big dividends when they’re shouldering massive debts and really can’t afford them? After scratching my head many times over what I see as inadequate capital management, I still can’t work out a convincing justification. When I see such a dividend/debt situation, I walk away and look elsewhere. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images.

Brian O’Driscoll on the brink of breaking Wallaby George Gregan’s Test cap record

first_imgThursday Mar 6, 2014 Brian O’Driscoll on the brink of breaking Wallaby George Gregan’s Test cap record This weekend Ireland face Italy in a Six Nations match that they’d be expected to win. Most of the focus will be on Brian O’Driscoll either way, as he will claim the record for most Test caps ever, as well as play his final Test match in Dublin.  In Ireland’s last match O’Driscoll equalled the record set by Wallaby great George Gregan, so when facing Italy he is set to eclipse it, then play his final match for his country a week later.Gregan, who played 139 Tests for his country, has said that the record couldn’t go to a better player. “He’s just a great player, he still wants to contribute to the teams that he plays with,” Gregan said.  “So it’s well deserved, he’ll go past that and set a new record which is fantastic.”“I got a nice tweet from George Gregan on equaling his record and people have been lovely over the last while. I just want to be able to go out on a high, that’s the big thing,” he said this week.O’Driscoll then has a chance to finish on high, as a win in his final match – over France in Paris – could mean a Six Nations championship victory, adding to his long list of accolades.“There is no individual feeling, there really isn’t, there’s always time to reflect afterwards and that’s the time to do it. The team has absolute priority and always has done, there will be no extra emphasis made by anyone this weekend other than giving us a final showdown against France.”BOD’s record run at the top may be short-lived however, as there are a few others who might catch up, namely Richie McCaw, who has currently played 124 Tests for New Zealand.“I’m sure in time it will be broken, yes, there’s always scope for guys to break records,” O’Driscoll said. “All going well, hopefully I’ll get the record this weekend I’m sure it will be broken another time. Lots of guys now are over the 100-cap mark and still playing, and still playing well.“If guys look after themselves and maintain their fitness for 15 years I think you will see the 150-cap mark broken. I can’t see it being a bad thing, someone being consistently good, enough to stay in the competition environment, for 14 or 15 years. So I would definitely say I encourage it.”credit: RTE RugbyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

To soften and appreciate the plainer-nature of the architecture, we design a series rose-gold powder-coated 4mm-thick steel screens based on indigenous Yoruba ‘Adire’ fabric patterns to create a delicate contradiction but functionally to reduce the sun’s glare and act as privacy screens.Save this picture!© Medina DuggerOur architectural intent was to create a series of spaces that could work for multiple gathering niches and more communal spaces for entertaining. The pool, 21meters long plays a focal role, reflecting beau- tifully the colour of the sky. Majority of the building materials were locally sourced, particularly the cedar wood for the tongue and groove doors and rotating shutter panels for the hot tub area. White concrete was used for the pool deck to avoid the monotony of a tiled surface and polished concrete was used for all internal spaces. Frame-less glass was used for the balustrade behind the steel laser cut screens to emphasis the elegance of the screens.Save this picture!© Medina Dugger CopyHouses•Lagos, Nigerialast_img read more

As it was implanted in a corner ground, the house is open to the outside at the four cardinal points. The corners are free and transparent; however, all the internal circulation and intimate course are protected. The house is built in three floors: the ground floor, where all the social interaction happens, the superior floor – intimate – and the inferior floor, where there are a garage, a warehouse, and the maintenance equipment. The sloping and hooked ceiling gives amplitude to the social area while it also makes the area cozy. The generous 3m swing invites and protects who approach the house from the main entrance. The concrete is added subtly in the landscape through the hooked and minimally curved slabs.Save this picture!© Adriano PacelliSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Adriano PacelliAppropriate for the tropical climate of the region, we projected the pool in a way it has sunny and shady areas to soften the heat and to protect from direct sunlight during some hours and seasons of the year. At one side, there is a garden pergola for shady and to create a resting area in the water. At the other side, there is a continuous exposition to sunlight with a small beach and deck. We designed stairs that begin at the terrace and go in direction to the pool, entering from all levels, allowing a smooth walk during the whole way inside the water, step by step, and create small internal courts inside the pool in its different levels until they end up at the swimming streak.Save this picture!© Adriano PacelliIn order to make the project sustainable, we designed: a solar water heater, photovoltaic solar panels to produce electricity, rainwater catchment system to irrigate the garden, large overhangs and roof garden for thermal comfort, double glasses to provide thermoacoustic comfort, brise soleil with movable flaps that control isolation and ventilation, and an elevator for accessibility. We projected the garden pergola and some of its pillars made of glued laminated wood, protected by metal ruffles, to create shade in the pool area. We used additive concrete in the hooked and sloping slabs for waterproofing. We designed some glazed hollows and ribbed slabs strategically located to allow light during the day or to appreciate the moon at night.Save this picture!© Adriano Pacelli”Gaps. Pauses. Glimpses of an instant in suspension. The gaps induce us to look at each other. Or to look more closely so we can see”. (CALZAVARA, Ana.

Northern Ireland donors more generous at Christmas than most of UK, says CCNI

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charity donors in Northern Ireland give on average £7.60 more than the rest of the UK at Christmas, according to a poll published by the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland (CCNI).The poll, carried out by ICM Research, reported that the average UK donation per person at Christmas was £39.50. However, Northern Ireland respondents topped the list by planning to give or actual donating an average donation of £47.10.The only area more generous than Northern Ireland was the South East of England with an average donation of £52.The most popular ways for local people to give to charities over the festive season are purchasing festive cards and other goods in aid of charity (82%), cash collections (75%) and raffles and lotteries (57%).Frances McCandless, Chief Executive of CCNI, welcomed the findings, which she said confirm the important place charities have in the hearts of the Northern Ireland public.The survey also revealed that 68% of Northern Ireland respondents never look for the Fundraising Standards Board’s (FRSB) ‘give with confidence’ logo – something which the Commission is hoping to change over the next year.“It is regrettable that people are continuing to give to charity collectors without undertaking some basic checks first to ensure that they are giving to a bona fide charity,”Ms McCandless said.Details of the survey can be downloaded from the CCNI website.
