According to research from the Bordeaux Index – which tracks live changes in the prices of 80 to 100 of the most traded wines – demand for fine wine grew by 26 per cent in the year to date, and 39 per cent in 2009.Demand for premium wines above £80 far outstrips supply. One wine, Chateau Lafite, is not ready to drink yet, but sold at a Hong Kong auction for £43,000 a case – three times its market value.Wine merchants do not see a speculative bubble forming, despite the rapid price rise. Gary Boom, managing director and founder of Bordeaux Index, says that most wine sold leaves London, suggesting that investors actually consume the wine.The news comes as the Hong Kong International Spirits and Wines fair begins. The Fair is the largest in Asia, and has twice as many vendors this year as last. Hong Kong now has more wine auctions than London, trailing only New York.The Bordeaux Index research also showed prices for the most popular wines climbed 1.7 per cent during October, driven largely by a 45 per cent rise in turnover compared with the same month a year ago.Boom said: “With continued strong growth in both Asia and Latin America – and expected improvements from the US and Europe – we’re confident investors’ money will continue to flow into wine over the next two months.” Thursday 4 November 2010 9:38 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

New operator VSODDS.BET going back to basics

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter New operator VSODDS.BET going back to basics Sportsbook ditches complex bonuses to lure “savvy” customers New online sports betting operator VSODDS.BET has launched today (Wednesday) promising to revolutionise the industry by offering market-leading odds to “savvy” consumers. VSODDS.BET, which is licenced in the Caribbean island of Curaçao, will provide only pre-match, fixed odds to players in core markets around the world. VSODDS.BET has launched with the intention of being a market disruptor and founder Dalius Dabashinskas told iGamingBusiness.com that it has set its sights on regulated markets across Europe, as well as the Commonwealth of Independent States. Dabashinskas added: “VSODDS.BET is all about offering players the best odds in the market. Our team of highly-skilled traders combine the dark art of bookmaking and state-of-the-art data feeds to crunch the numbers and offer our players odds that are more competitive than our rivals. “When it comes to having confidence in our brand and proposition, we believe that players are becoming more and more savvy, and that bonuses with hidden terms and conditions offer little value compared to properly calculated odds. “In some ways it is about going back to basics, but with a platform and brand that is modern, sleek and easy to use. The online sportsbook market is fiercely competitive, but we believe 100% that we have what it takes to stand out from the crowd and deliver a superior player experience.” VSODDS.BET offers odds and markets across a wide range of sports, including football, tennis, golf, basketball, Formula One, American football, ice hockey and handball, with more to be added in the coming months. Players can deposit and withdraw via all the major payment gateways, including debit and credit card, Visa and Mastercard, Skrill and bank transfer, and without incurring any fees. VSODDS.BET is also promising players “super-fast” transaction times. Dabashinskas acknowledged that operators have historically been cautious of offering pre-match odds, but he believes VSODDS.BET can strike the right balance between providing added value to players while also balancing risk from the company’s end. He added: “Our USP is very much our market-leading odds, so we have built a highly-skilled trading team to ensure we always offer the best value while also managing risk from our side. We have also launched with a simple and easy to use design and website, which we will fine-tune over the coming months based on player feedback. “In this regard, we are taking a slow and steady approach to our launch and roll out while we tweak our product and proposition to meet the demands of our players.” Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 5th September 2018 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

Karl Loomes | Thursday, 29th October, 2020 Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Passive income has been a buzzword for the past few years. It can take many forms, from publishing a book to starting a business. For me though, the stock market is one of the best and easiest ways to gain a passive income. The basic premisePassive income, as the name suggests, is an attempt to receive money with little or no on-going efforts. For many it is the dream – having enough cash coming in to mean they can quit their job and retire early. Images of sitting on a sandy beach sipping champagne come to mind.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…Of course gaining this level of passive income can be very difficult. Starting a business or publishing a book may not be suitable for many. And even if it is, there is no guarantee it will be successful.Though it often doesn’t get mentioned in the same context, millions of people have been making passive income for decades — long before the term itself was used. This passive income comes from investing.Though fixed income bonds offer a guaranteed (assuming they don’t default) return, with interest rates as low as they are right now, this is negligible. The stock market, however, can offer much better returns through dividends.Dividends as passive incomeFirst a few caveats. The stock market, of course, has many price fluctuations. If you buy a share today for its dividend, tomorrow it could be worth half its value if something goes very wrong. No dividend will make up for that.In addition, unlike bonds, the return from a stock is not guaranteed over any significant period. If a company makes less money, it can reduce or even suspend its dividend. Luckily these risks can be mitigated by sensible decisions and good advice.Top tips for dividend investingFirst, plan on investing for the long term. If you can’t afford to lock your money away for five years or more, short-term price fluctuations may be too much for you. Even the best companies will see their prices go down sometimes. You need to be able to hold on when they do.To help with this, look mainly at big, blue-chip stocks, preferably companies with strong brands. Though it’s no guarantee, larger, well-established firms are better able to weather financial turmoil. They also tend to have more cash available for investors.To help in stock choice, look for companies that have paid dividends consistently for, say, five years. If a company has a dividend one year, none the next, half again this year, it is probably not the right choice.You also want to look for a share that has also grown its dividend over time. Inflation-beating growth should be enough.The last consideration is in many ways the key one: yield. While five-year bonds are only paying a few percentage points, it is quite easy to find solid shares paying 5% or more.Ideally look for stocks with a dividend yield between 3% and 6%. Anything less isn’t worth it, and anything more may be unsustainable.However, keep in mind that a dividend yield is based on the share price. An oversold stock will mean an artificially inflated yield. Always be on the look out for these kinds of opportunities to boost your passive income for less.

Brock James and Clermont beat Munster 25-19

first_imgMonday Dec 8, 2008 Brock James and Clermont beat Munster 25-19 Munster slipped to their first defeat in Europe since lifting the Heineken Cup but a bonus point in Clermont-Auvergne kept their qualification hopes alive.Brock James scored all of Clermont’s points, including six penalties and a second-half try, to keep his team in the tournament with a repeat of last season’s victory over the European champions.But Ronan O’Gara’s 73rd-minute penalty ensured Munster left France with a potentially crucial losing bonus point that keeps them in touch with leaders Sale Sharks with two of their next three pool games at home.Marcus Horan got the visitors off to a nice lead in the 25th minute with a well taken try after OGara and James had traded two penalties each early on.James kept Clermont in the game though with some pinpoint kicking after Munster gave away a series of penalties.The home side stepped up a gear and it was James himself who beat two tackles to score a crucial try.A moment of ill-discipline handed Munster the chance at a bonus point, as Pierre Mignoni conceded a penalty, which was followed by them being marched back another 10 years after comments made by the players.OGara obliged, and the match finished 25-19 to the home side.These highlights include not only the tries, but a few big hits too.

first_imgSchool bus drivers turned out in force Oct. 29 at the San Francisco School District headquarters to oppose changes they believe will jeopardize the safety of children, whom they shepherd every day to and from their homes and schools.“The wheels on the bus go ‘round and ‘round, but when it comes to safety we don’t mess around,” chanted the union bus drivers from SMART Local 1741. (SMART was formed in 2008 with the merger of the United Transportation Union and the Sheet Metal Workers.) They were joined by sheet metal workers and nearly 100 other supporters, who protested outside and packed the meeting of the San Francisco Board of Education. The proposed changes threaten to replace the familiar, tightly regulated and safe “little yellow school bus” with small unregulated vans and Uber vehicles driven by any driver with a regular Class C license. This contrasts with the stringent testing and background checks now required for certified union drivers who transport children. Many current drivers have 30 or 40 years experience and spotless safety records.A bus driver told the board: “It’s all about sacrificing the children’s safety just to save a little money and hire ride-share drivers.” Long-time driver Shane Hoff said, “I’d hate to see a student hurt because you’re trying to save money short-term and cut corners on driver training.”The San Francisco Labor Council recently approved a resolution mandating detailed requirements to ensure “safety for SF school children as they are transported home-to-school in safe vehicles by qualified, experienced, unionized school bus drivers.”The board is set to vote on details of the school bus contract with First Student, a private company, before the end of the year.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
