Thursday 16 December 2010 8:34 pm US private equity firm Carlyle Group has deepened its ties with a major Abu Dhabi investor in a move that could see it grow its investments in the Middle East.State-owned investor Mubadala Development has paid $500m (£318m) for an unspecified mixture of debt and equity in Carlyle, adding to its 7.5 per cent stake bought in 2007.Mubadala, which invests in long-term capital-intensive projects to diversify Abu Dhabi’s economy, has co-invested and collaborated with Carlyle in sectors such as healthcare and aerospace since then. The Middle East and north Africa region has been another focus for cooperation.“Our partnership with Mubadala continues to strengthen as we collaborate on investment opportunities and share sector and regional economic insights,” said David Rubenstein, Carlyle’s co-founder and managing director. The additional capital will allow it to extend new product lines and offerings to investors, said the US firm.Carlyle currently manages assets of about $98bn while Mubadala said in September that it held 86.1bn dirhams (£15bn) at the end of the first half of 2010. Goldman Sachs advised Mubadala on the deal, while Citi and JP Morgan Securities advised Carlyle.

That major championship’s site in Flushing Meadows is hosting the Ohio-based Western & Southern Open, too, as part of an unusual doubleheader with no spectators.Djokovic got by, even though he was wincing and stretching his neck between points, then wound up laying on his back — a medical mask and protective glasses on his face — while having his neck manipulated after the first set.While the tours were shut down, Djokovic tested positive for COVID-19 in June after a series of no-social-distancing exhibition matches he organized in Serbia and Croatia.As tennis ramps up — this is the first tournament of the resumption for the men; the women returned earlier this month — there has been a host of surprises, including defending women’s champion Madison Keys’ 6-4, 6-1 departure against Ons Jabeur in an hour Monday night.Earlier, No. 2 seed Dominic Thiem, a three-time major finalist, wasn’t much more competitive in a 6-2, 6-1 loss to Filip Krajinovic, and No. 5 Alexander Zverev hit 11 double-faults — five over his last two service games — while being beaten by Andy Murray 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.Western & Southern Open Tennis LIVE : Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka winsLike Djokovic, Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka emerged with difficult wins, while two-time Wimbledon champ Petra Kvitova, the No. 6 seed, lost. Each of the top two women’s seeds, Karolina Pliskova and Sofia Kenin, were beaten Sunday.Djokovic now meets American Tennys Sandgren, a 6-7 (4), 6-2, 7-6 (5) winner over No. 15 seed Felix Auger-Aliassime, who accumulated 15 double-faults. Another American, Reilly Opelka, eliminated No. 9 seed Diego Schwartzman 6-3, 7-6 (4).Her yells of “Come on!” filling a nearly empty stadium, Williams was pushed to the brink in her longest match since 2012 before pulling away with a perfect tiebreaker and edging Arantxa Rus 7-6 (6), 3-6, 7-6 (0).“I had a crowd in my head or something,” Williams said with a laugh. “For me, it was like there was a crowd there.”Rus is a Dutch qualifier ranked No. 72 whose flat, left-handed strokes from the baseline gave Williams some trouble. Williams dropped four games in a row in the second set, then did so again in the third, when she fell behind 6-5.Rus served for the match there and, at deuce, was two points from victory.She wouldn’t win another point.Showing the strokes and grit that carried her to 23 Grand Slam titles — against an opponent who has never won so much as one tour-level singles title of any sort — Williams ran away with it, ending the 2-hour, 48-minute match with a forehand, celebrating most points with a yell and a clenched left fist.Williams hadn’t spent that much time on a court since the 2012 French Open, when she lost in the first round to Virginie Razzano in 3 hours, 3 minutes. That was Williams’ only career first-round exit at a Grand Slam tournament.“I did hit a wall today in the second set, I was so hot. That never happens,” the 38-year-old American said. “So I think physically, I’m fit. Tennis is mental. You know, it’s all mental.”She moved into the third round thanks in part to 14 aces, one at 121 mph. Osaka used 12 aces to get through 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-2 against Karolina Muchova.Next for Williams is No. 13 Maria Sakkari, who is Greek and figured it might work to her advantage to have a quiet setting in New York. If there were the usual crowd of thousands when Williams plays, Sakkari calculated, the fans’ support would break down along these lines: “99% with her, 1% with me.” Latest Sports News Sport News read more

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Royston Wild I believe now’s a great time to load up on UK shares. It’s a view widely shared here at The Motley Fool. I reckon the opportunity to buy many quality stocks at cheap prices following the 2020 stock market crash is too good to pass up on.This doesn’t mean UK share investors shouldn’t be cautious as we move through the new year though. Indeed, a new Coutts report lays out several issues that could hamper the economic recovery. These comprise: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…Brexit trade bumps. According to Coutts, there “is still a lot of detail to be resolved” following the UK-EU trade deal signed in December. It describes the impact of non-tariff barriers like increased customs administration as unclear. And the bank notes that access for British services companies, including those involved in financial services, is yet to be concluded.A bumpy coronavirus recovery. Business will gradually return to normal as the Covid-19 vaccine is rolled out. But Coutts says that “the economic recovery won’t be smooth” as lockdowns could continue and leave “deep economic scarring.”Over-optimistic markets. Coutts says that much of the good news surrounding the economic recovery was priced in during November’s stock market rally. And this brings two possible risks. It says “markets may not have much further to go on the upside,” and that “even mild setbacks could cause markets to fall.”China–US tensions. The bank says a change of US President won’t end the “simmering rivalry” between the two countries. It reckons “most of the sore points that existed in 2016 – trade imbalances, intellectual property rights – remain unresolved.” Royston Wild | Tuesday, 19th January, 2021 read more

The stock market rally has now been going on for over six months now. This translates into a price rise across UK shares, making them more expensive than before., even with the sell-off seen this week. So how should I as an investor decide which stocks to buy?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…Interpreting valuationsOne way is to consider those that are relatively undervalued in a general bull market. My preferred measure is the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, which provides a way to make a comparison against peers. Another way is to consider stocks in the context of their own performance. So if a company has a high valuation, going by its P/E but it is also delivering great results, perhaps the premium on it is justified. Treatt posts robust resultsI think it is this second argument that explains the current share price of ingredient supplier to consumer goods manufacturers Treatt (LSE: TET). It has more than doubled since last year, and is now a few pence below £10.70, dropping slightly from its recent all-time-highs. At this level, it has a high P/E of 66 times. But its latest results are pretty good too. It released its half-year results for the six-months ending March 31 earlier on Tuesday. Here are some details:Its revenues were up 13.5% from the corresponding half-year of 2020.Its pre-tax profit was up by a huge 71.4%.Treatt’s dividend per share has been increased by 8.7%.Further, its outlook is positive too. Specifically, two statements stood out for me:Its trading momentum is good and it sees growth opportunities across markets. Group CEO Daemmon Reeve added that there is optimism about the reopening of hospitality in the coming months.It expects full-year pre-tax profit to be £20m, which is more than analysts’ expectations of £18m. Bullishness on the UK shareAnalysts are bullish on its share price. I have numbers only from three analysts as compiled by the Financial Times, but that does give some guidance. These numbers suggest an average of a 13.5% increase is expected in the share price in the next 12 months. I should stress that analysts’ estimates are subject to changes, so this is only one factor I keep in mind when buying a stock. Nevertheless, it is a useful one. In this case though, I would think that more bullishness is possible after Treatt released its latest figures. Uncertain environmentMy only concern about the share is that the broader environment may not quite play out the way we anticipate. The FTSE 100 index has just fallen back below 7,000 after staying above the level for a few sessions. I think that investors have not yet put the stock market crash and coronavirus crisis behind them entirely. Because of this, there is heightened sensitivity to any new developments. A big enough catalyst can push us back into market crash levels. And that is bad for all stocks. My takeawayThat is a pessimist’s argument, however. I am positive on the markets and I like Treatt, making this UK share a buy for me. read more

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares With the first half of the year drawing to a close this month, many investors will be reviewing their portfolios. I have been doing that – and thinking about what the best shares to buy now are.Here are three UK shares I’d buy for my portfolio today.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…Economic moatInvestor Warren Buffett talks about the benefit of a company having an economic ‘moat’. That is something that helps to defend it against competitors. For example, owning unique brands with customer loyalty can provide such a moat.A company I think possesses such a moat is Unilever. Its collection of brands such as Domestos and Lifebuoy helps it achieve premium pricing on simple household goods. Its exposure to developing markets helps pave the way for future growth. Meanwhile, the company’s cash generation supports substantial dividends. Currently, Unilever yields 3.4%.Why would I buy it today? With just 1% appreciation in the Unilever share price over the past 12 months, it is around 15% down from where it sat a couple of years ago. But with a heightened customer awareness on hygiene following the pandemic, I think the demand outlook looks good.One risk is a decline in personal grooming as people interact in person less. That could hurt sales of products like shampoo and deodorant.Best shares to buy now: S4 CapitalAnother share I’d consider adding to my holdings is digital marketing group S4 Capital. The shares are close to an all-time high — so why would I still buy?The rise in digital advertising has been significant. I think it is here to stay. Global companies like Mondelez and BMW appreciate the convenience of working with digital marketing experts across multiple markets. That helps a company with global reach like S4, which counts both among its clients.S4 has gathered a collection of agencies many of which have excellent reputations in their home markets. That, combined with buoyant demand, is why I rate S4 Capital among the best shares to buy now for my portfolio.One risk is the company’s heavy exposure to tech clients. While it has been broadening its roster, tech still dominates. Any slowdown in spending in the tech sector could ricochet across S4’s revenue.High yield choiceTobacco might not have the growth prospects seen in digital advertising. But industry behemoth British American Tobacco has nonetheless demonstrated an ability to grow revenues. It expects constant currency revenue growth north of 5% this year.The real reason I see BAT as among the best shares to buy now for my portfolio, however, is not growth but income. A juicy 7.3% yield is covered by earnings. The company has been disciplined about its target payout ratio of 65%, which reduces my concerns that this share could be a value trap.There are risks, though, including a debt pile of around £40bn. Paying that down could reduce the company’s ability to fund dividends. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Designed as an Open Building, Superloft Blok Y forms part of the ongoing Superlofts project, initiated by Marc Koehler Architects (MKA), focused on flexibility, participation, and adaptability. It offered a collective of 30 homeowners a blank canvas to customize or design and build their apartments according to their needs, and actively engaged them from the outset to co-create the building and its shared spaces. A unique complex – where no two apartments are alike – results from the building’s radical flexibility, collective character and high level of sustainability.Save this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© Stijn PoelstraThe five-story building comprises a base framework (support) that is independently fitted out (infill) by the inhabitants. Blok Y combines 30 Superlofts into 5 types – XS lofts (70m2) to family lofts (145m2) – resulting in a rich diversity of dwellings and mixed community. Homeowners could fit out a completely raw space (by themselves or together with an architect) or customize an existing floor plan, and also their exterior. The open concrete framework is organized into varying loft formats with two or three stories, single or double facade, with a roof terrace, balcony or garden. Their unique layouts are uncommon in conventional housing, many designed to flexibly accommodate future change e.g. by incorporating a lift or flexible partitions to reconfigure the interior once the kids leave home. Generous voids create a beautiful sense of space and light. Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraConstructed with a considered use of materials and meticulous detailing, the facade is a simple but strong expression of the concept. The interplay of the fixed concrete grid and variation in details from the customized facades results in a robust, dynamic building that reflects the diversity of its community. The slim concrete grid is filled in with a framework of double-height windows that bring light deep into the apartments. A lively facade composition results from the varying loft exteriors, with their different entrances, balconies and window configurations. By night, modules of glowing interiors animate the framework, reflecting the changing activity within.Save this picture!Exploded Structure Diagram 2Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgConstructed with a considered use of materials and meticulous detailing, the facade is a simple but strong expression of the concept.
