When FTSE 100 advertising and PR giant WPP (LSE: WPP) parted company with founder and chief executive Martin Sorrell, many observers feared for the company. And they weren’t wrong, at least in the short term. Between Sorrell’s departure in April 2018 and February 2020, the WPP share price crashed by a third.But there’s more to the story. WPP shares had already been falling, having reached a peak in early 2017. And then Covid-19 struck and, so far in 2020, the price is down 44%. The FTSE 100 itself has been turing south again, and it’s now dropped more than 25% in 2020. But the WPP fall is one of the worst in the UK stock market’s top tier.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 past two years have brought earnings falls, with another tough year on the cards in 2020. If forecasts prove accurate, this year’s EPS will be down more than 50% from 2017. The company has slashed its dividend too. But if we look beyond the current year, I think the firm’s long-term future is positive.Third quarter updateWPP released a Q3 update Thursday, and it’s essentially a list of falling numbers. Reported revenue for the quarter is down 9.8% on the same period last year, with the like-for-like figure showing a 5.5% drop. Revenue, less pass-through costs, is looking tougher, down 11.9% overall and down 7.6% like-for-like.That’s arguably a little softer than the nine-month figures, so things might be improving. Reported year-to-date revenue is down 11.5% with like-for-like falling 9.5% (down 10.8% and 8.9%, less pass-through costs).The 2020 numbers so far are clearly not great. But they look to me to be largely in line with full-year forecasts. Investors didn’t much like the look of the update at first, dropping the WPP share price 4.4% in early trading. But, as I write, it’s back to around a 2% slip on the day, so maybe things aren’t quite so disappointing on a closer look.Looking to the brighter potential future, chief executive Mark Read spoke of the new businesses the firm has signed up this year. It includes deals with Alibaba, Dell, HSBC, Intel, Unilever and Whirlpool. In the long-term, the big firms, including FTSE 100 giants, are surely going to stick with the proven winners.FTSE 100 winner?Right now, WPP shares are on a forward P/E of around 12. That’s below the FTSE 100 long-term average, and we might expect to see a lower valuation this year. But I think it’s very wrong to value a company in such a short-term way. If the shares are valued so modestly in what looks set to be probably the toughest year for business in many decades, how cheap will they look when we’re out of the crisis?Forecasts for 2021 give us some clue. They have to be treated with some caution, of course. But a prediction for 30% EPS growth next year would drop the P/E to nine. Analysts expect the dividend to pick up too, to present a well-covered yield of 6.5%.I reckon WPP is till the best in the business. And I rate it one of the FTSE 100’s best buys today.

Mission to Seafarers launches Corporate Partnerships Portfolio

The document also describes how the mission, and more widely the shipping community, can provide practical support for seafarers’ welfare projects around the world.The 32-page document details key areas that are vital for the operations carried out by the mission, corporate social responsibility, its network of branches, corporate partnership, and the support it receives and employee engagement. As well as these, the Corporate Paternships Portfolio offers a comprehensive guide to the work of the mission and lists a number of sponsorship and corporate partnership opportunities.“This document signals an important move to showcase the work we achieve, while at the same time raising awareness of the issues that depend on the shipping industry’s support and generosity,” the agency’s secretary general, Andrew Wright, said. “Raising funds is extremely challenging and we are deeply grateful to the support we receive in our work. Seafarers need our help. Life at sea is often dangerous and demanding. Our service to them meets a very real need and it changes thousands of lives for the better.”The Portfolio was launched at the industry’s leading global gathering Posidonia, which took place last week in Athens, Greece. The Mission to Seafarers had been chosen as the official charity for this year’s event. Posidonia director Theodore Vokos commented: “We are very happy to welcome the Mission to Seafarers as an official supported charity at Posidonia 2016 and to promote their very important work.“Seafarers are the backbone of this important industry and organisations like the Mission to Seafarers, who support them, play an essential role in assuring that shipping will continue to serve the global economy.“By supporting the mission we aim to increase awareness amongst members of the international maritime community about the issues facing seafarers. Posidonia participants are invited to reach out to the Mission to Seafarers and learn more about its projects and needs.” Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Tampa, FL Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Bath, NC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Legacy Voice publishes first literature review into legacy giving

first_imgLegacy Voice publishes first literature review into legacy giving Melanie May | 23 May 2018 | News  297 total views,  1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Legacy Voice has published a comprehensive literature review into legacy giving with the aim of helping charities and fundraisers make the most of this source of voluntary income.The review, Everything We Know about Legacy Giving in 2018, is authored by Professor Adrian Sargeant and Dr Claire Routley and available on the Legacy Voice site. It encompasses fields including fundraising, psychology, psychiatry and behavioural economics and pulls together over 160 previously published research papers into one review of why and how donors leave gifts to charity in their wills.It examines the area of will making, major motivations for leaving a gift to charity in a Will, the influence of charity communications and the importance of ongoing stewardship. It also includes a legacy model summarising the decision making process that a donor goes through when deciding what and who to benefit in their Will. Ashley Rowthorn, Director of Legacy Voice, said: “What we find is that legacy giving has little if nothing to do with our own organisations, but instead is a reflection on the lives of our donors. And the more we understand what drives legacy giving, the more we see that it is completely different to lifetime giving. Which makes sense of the fact that the majority of legacy donors do not support or donate to those charities in their lifetime.”“If we are to realise the potential of this form of fundraising, we must understand it better and apply that to our fundraising practices. All too often we see charities applying lifetime giving practices and expecting it to work in a legacy context. It just won’t”.“What this research shows us is that legacy giving is driven primarily by a donor’s personal experience and values, and that leaving a gift in a will helps us find meaning in life, and a means to live on after our death. We see that legacy giving meets a real need for people, to find new meaning and purpose in later life. Legacy giving makes people happy”.Professor Adrian Sargeant added: Advertisement “Over the last decade, our knowledge about who gives gifts in wills and why has increased dramatically – and bringing this disparate information into a single, accessible resource will be extremely helpful for legacy fundraisers.”  298 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis23 Tagged with: legacies research AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis23last_img read more

The event, which was attended by over 60 women in business from the mid-west region, was sponsored by the Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland (SBCI).Explaining why Limerick is making the headlines for all the right reasons and receiving international attention as a city in which to invest, Ms Ryan said, “Limerick now has the highest economic growth in Ireland.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Jillian Mahon, who is Head of Funding & Strategic initiatives for SBCI, then described how the SBCI is ensuring Irish SME’s have access to flexible and affordable funding. Challenging current perceptions around funding, she introduced a new way of financing for small businesses.“We are here to disrupt the marketplace. We want to power SME growth by helping them access the finance to invest in their businesses.  So far 8,619 Irish SME’s have drawn down SBCI loans, we want more and more businesses to ask their banks about how they can access our competitive funding,” commented Ms Mahon.Supporting the SBCI presentation, Sabrina Amodeo of Tuscany Bistro spoke about how her business has benefited from SBCI funding. Starting out with a small bistro in Castletroy, she explained how she seized opportunities as they arose and now has four businesses including Tuscany at the Granary, Amodeo Dressing (a salad dressing food company) and an outdoor catering company. Ms Amodeo praised the SBCI and AIB for making the funding application process so seamless.Edwina Gore, president of Network Ireland Limerick, said “This event was all about changing perceptions and understanding the opportunities that exist for local companies to grow their business.  It was great to hear about the positive change in our region and how small businesses are seizing the opportunities to grow with support mechanisms like those available from the SBCI.”Network Ireland Limerick’s next event takes place on 8 March 2017 and will mark International Women’s Day.
