His remarks come as figures yesterday showed that the Consumer Price Index has remained above three per cent for the sixth consecutive month. Inflation has continued to sit above the Bank’s two per cent target for almost a year.Meanwhile, bread, clothes and cereal prices have continued to rise during August. whatsapp Sharecenter_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof KCS-content last_img read more

Currently, parliamentary sovereignty is only rooted in common law, but the government has decided to include a clause in the forthcoming EU Bill, stating that European law can only take effect in the UK if parliament decides that it should.However, former foreign minister Chris Bryant dismissed the move as “posturing”, pointing out that the announcement will have little or no impact. All EU law only takes effect because of the European Communities Act 1972, which parliament can amend or repeal at any time.Even Hague admitted the move would “not alter the existing order in relation to EU law” but insisted that it would “put the matter beyond speculation”.

Good underlying progress has been overshadowed by the tough consumer backdrop. While market conditions stay difficult we feel the group is close to trough earnings; a price to earnings ratio of under eight times hardly looks demanding.SAM HART | CHARLES STANLEYThese results were in line with soft expectations, impacted by disruption relating to the volcanic ash cloud and weak underlying trading in the UK business. The shares look cheap but the quality of earnings in the tour operator sub-sector is poor. We expect investors to remain wary of the shares.

Pearson hikes profit outlook for 2010 again

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp PEARSON continued its blistering run of form yesterday, raising its 2010 profit forecast for the second time in three months.The group, which owns Penguin and the Financial Times, said it now expected to report operating profit for 2010 of around £850m, an increase of around 20 per cent.The firm says its improved outlook was driven by its investments in education, digital products and emerging markets.Pearson said its growth came across the board, with education performing strongly, the Financial Times division set to report “substantial profit growth” and Penguin Books eyeing record results after a strong Christmas. Its North American education business also achieved market share gains following its investment in digital products, setting it up for good sales growth and margin improvement, Pearson said .Shares in the group closed up 4.47 per cent to an eight month high of £10.51 after the upgrade – its third for the year.Chief executive Marjorie Scardino said: “For the third successive year, our growth is vigorous even though market conditions have been anaemic.“That confirms the soundness of our strategy and the increasing strength of our market positions. We are on the right road and set out on 2011 with confidence that we will have another good year.”Earlier this week the firm announced it has acquired a majority stake in Indian online education business TutorVista.

Glaxo sells Quest stake for £1bn

first_img PHARMA giant GlaxoSmithKline sold its stake in contract research firm Quest Diagnostics for $1.7bn (£1.05bn) yesterday.The sale buoyed hopes the company would restart a share buyback programme to bolster its share price, following the lead of competitors such as AstraZeneca, which is repurchasing $4bn of stock. But the sale also freed up cash for Glaxo to pay a £2.2bn net charge imposed on 17 January, resulting from legal disputes going back to 2004.“Taking the Quest sale in context with GSK’s recently announced legal charge to be taken in its fourth-quarter 2010 earnings, the cash generated is certainly timely,” said Shore Capital analyst Brian White.Glaxo sold 30.8m shares, equivalent to 18 per cent of Quest, through a public share offering, of which Quest bought half. After tax, Glaxo is expected to retain $1.1bn of the proceeds. New York-listed Quest, which has a market cap of about $9.71bn, was a non-core asset Glaxo acquired in 1999, but had been reducing its shareholding for some time.“We have decided that now is a good time to take advantage of favourable market conditions,” said Glaxo chief financial officer Julian Heslop. He added that the divestment “demonstrates our focus on generating attractive returns for our shareholders and our ability to monetise significant gains when appropriate.”Glaxo, which has a market capitalisation of about £59.6bn, suspended its share buyback in 2008 and has focused on increasing its dividend and making bolt-on deals, while also working to resolve its legal issues.Glaxo’s shares closed down 1.52 per cent at £11.29.
