Xstrata posts $6bn profit as copper soars

first_img MINER Xstrata beat expectations to more than quadruple its pre-tax profit in 2010, the firm said yesterday, on the back of a runaway rise in commodity prices.Xstrata’s pre-tax profit rose to $6.6bn (£4.1bn) up from $1.53bn a year ago, on revenues that rose 34 per cent to $30.5bn. Copper prices, which have jumped 30 per cent in the last 12 months, contributed $2.2bn to Xstrata’s $7.7bn operating profit, which was 75 per cent up on last year. The firm unveiled a higher than expected dividend payment for the year, to 25 cents compared to eight cents a year ago, in a demonstration of the board’s confidence in its plans for the year. Sanford Bernstein analyst Paul Galloway said the dividend “puts down a marker for cash return for other mining companies”.Xstrata repeated its plans to increase overall production by 50 per cent before the end of 2014, and said it was on track to continue 20 new or expanding projects in 2011. Xstrata said last week that thermal production had been hit by the flooding in Queensland, Australia, but chief executive Mick Davis said yesterday the outlook was less bleak. “As we stand at the moment we do not see any significant impact on 2011 results,” he said. Mining rivals Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton are due to report results on the 10 and 16 February respectively. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com Tags: NULL KCS-content Sharecenter_img whatsapp Xstrata posts $6bn profit as copper soars Tuesday 8 February 2011 8:57 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”Wanderoam last_img read more

At the moment, most of us may feel like we need this more than we usually do, given the problems of 2020. Gaining an extra source of income can be of major benefit to most of us. Luckily, we don’t need to start a business or write a book to do so. Investing in shares can be the way forward. Here’s how I’d aim to make passive income in 2021 if I was only starting to invest now.Passive income through sharesThough the term passive income is a fairly new addition to the national lexicon, for those of us who invest in shares, it’s something that has been talked about for many years. In the stock market, passive income comes in the form of dividends.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…For those who don’t know, a dividend is simply a portion of profits a company pays out to its shareholders. Not all companies pay dividends, and those that do offer different amounts. Unlike many investments, these dividends are not paid on a percentage basis, but on a pence-per-share basis.It mean the percentage return is dependent on both the actual payout, and the share price at the time of purchase. This makes it possible to lock-in very high returns. With coronavirus concerns looking set to dominate the markets for a little longer, share prices could stay cheap, allowing anyone starting on their investing journey now to lock-in attractive passive income returns not only for 2021, but for years ahead.Low prices and high yieldsThe prices of shares go up as well as down. This is how capital gains are made (or lost), and for most is the main consideration when investing. However, as I said earlier, a low share price offers more than this.Often a stock fluctuates based on short-term news, or even technical indicators. Expectations drive the price, as do fear and greed. Luckily none of these things are necessarily correct, or reflective of a company’s true strengths and weaknesses.When considering how to make passive income in 2021 then, we need to be on the lookout for companies whose share prices are unfairly low, but are continuing to pay out dividends.For those not used to the stock market, this can be a daunting prospect. When investing for income alone, I always suggest sticking with larger, blue-chip firms. In the UK this means looking at the FTSE 100. Finding the current yields of FTSE 100 components is easy enough.Choosing the right company is more difficult however. One needs to look at the fundamentals of each firm and the market it’s in. Good advice is essential here.To maximise a yield, we should also consider if the company’s share price is currently too high or low. A fundamentally strong firm will still see its share price go up and down. Perhaps counter to what we may think, we want to buy those shares when everyone else is selling. This means a low price and a good yield.Becoming a top stock picker won’t be an overnight undertaking for those unfamiliar with the stock market. But for many, the key to making a start on a passive income journey in 2021 is to do some research and then buy dividend shares. That’s what I’d do! Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Florida Department of Health thanks nurses

first_img Please enter your name here Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Please enter your comment! Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply National Nurses WeekThe Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) recognizes May 6th-May 12th as National Nurses Week as a time to honor the crucial role nurses play in keeping Florida’s residents and visitors healthy and safe. The department commends the many nurses that volunteered to provide care in special needs shelters during Hurricane Irma for their hard work and sacrifice.“Nurses are the backbone of the nation’s health care system. This is true also for our community health nurses,” said Dr. Kevin Sherin, DOH-Orange Health Officer. “We are so proud of the exemplary work that our public health nurses perform each day in Orange County, including caring for vulnerable folks with infectious and contagious diseases, early prenatal care, home visitations, childhood immunizations, school health and more.”Nursing is a diverse field, and public health nurses can work in many different settings. They work in clinics to provide immunizations, conduct testing for diseases and infections, help people manage chronic conditions like diabetes and asthma and inspire people to achieve a healthy lifestyle.Public health nurses also help communities prepare for natural disasters and assist in disaster relief efforts. During Hurricane Irma, Florida’s dedicated nurses and nurses from other states volunteered to staff more than 90 special needs shelters in 53 counties, providing mass care for people who could not safely remain in their home.Nurses continue to be high-demand in Florida. The Florida Center for Nursing (FCN) estimates that by 2025 Florida will have a shortage of at least 50,300 registered nurses, or 56,000 registered nurses and 12,500 licensed practical nurses.To respond to the growing nursing shortage, the department joined the enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact in January 2018, allowing registered nurses and licensed practical nurses who hold licensure in one Compact state to practice in any of the 27 Compact states without having to obtain additional licenses. Florida now issues a multi-state license to new applicants who meet the Compact licensure requirements; nurses who reside in Florida and hold an active, unrestricted license will also have the option to convert from a standard Florida license to a multi-state license.For more information regarding the enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact please visit the Florida Board of Nursing web page at http://floridanursing.gov/.To learn more about obtaining a license as a nurse, visit www.flhealthsource.gov.

Finding religion at a Green Day concert…

first_imgIn the momentWe tend to measure religiosity in quantitative terms: attending worship services, observing religious rituals, displaying faith symbols and art. I contend that being religious is not quantitative at all.The word “religion” is derived from the Latin root “ligio” meaning to tie together or to connect (as in “ligament”). Being religious, therefore, includes a sense of connection: it might be to God, or to a community, or to life itself. I add one further connection, and that is a connection to a moment in time.Davi had “warned” me that the Green Day rock concert would blow me away. I was skeptical: after all, I had seen the original Who and Rush! Davi was right: the music, the staging, the presentation was, to use the word of the Tampa Bay Times, epic. Billie Joe Armstrong informed the 15K attendees that this was not a night for politics, asking us to forget the world as it is and to think of the world as it should be: free of racism, free of sexism, free of homophobia, and with no threat of Nazis or their kind. The hallmark of Jewish religious values is exactly that: creating “world” as it should be.The height of religious connectivity was Billie asking us to put down our phones: when you take photos or videos, you are not looking at what is happening, you are looking at your phone. Don’t worry about preserving for tomorrow memories of what you did not fully experience today.All too often, we are so busy trying to capture the moment that we actually miss it. Perhaps the truest measure of being religious is the ability to connect with moments in life as they happen.This week, Green Day put me in the moment. Yes, I did snap a few photos… Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

From the Orange County Clerk of CourtsDuring Operation Green Light, nearly 2,000 citizens lined up to take advantage of savings to pay outstanding traffic tickets and criminal fines to restore their driving privileges.During the event, October 14-18, the Orange County Clerk’s office served more than 1,800 customers, which helped 97 people reinstate their suspended driver’s license with the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles during that week. The Clerk’s Office also cleared many more driver licenses for reinstatement.The initiative also helped customers by placing 8,758 cases on a payment plan while a total of 204 cases were paid in full. Nearly $2,000 collected was in the form of restitution that will now get paid to victims of crimes.“We knew that people would want to take advantage of this opportunity. Operation Green Light’s success can be measured by the number of citizens who will now be driving legally again,” said Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell. “I want to thank everyone on my team who worked extremely hard and made this event such a tremendous success.”During Operation Green Light, Orange County customers with outstanding traffic tickets and criminal fines had the opportunity to pay overdue court obligations while saving the 25 percent collections agency surcharge.Citizens don’t have to wait for a special event to get assistance with overdue cases. Every day the Orange County Clerk of Courts can assist drivers with payment plans, payment contracts or payment extensions.For more information about the Clerk’s Office various payment options, visit www.myorangeclerk.com/Divisions/Traffic/Collections-and-Payment-Plans Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear last_img read more
