Tags: Charitable Gaming 13th September 2019 | By contenteditor Brazilian lotteries boosted by Mega-Sena performance in Q2 The Brazilian lottery market has reported a 52.6% year-on-year increase in revenue for the second quarter of 2019, with the market benefitting from the contribution from the Mega-Sena game more than doubling over the period.Revenue for the three months to 30 June, 2019 grew to R$4.76bn (£945.1m/€1.06bn/$1.17bn), driven by a 142.3% year-on-year rise in Mega-Sena revenue to R$2.52bn.The Secretariat of Evaluation, Planning, Energy and Lottery (SECAP) noted that this was largely down to a number of jackpot rollovers, which saw the largest lottery prize in Brazil’s history, of R$289.4m, on offer for the draw on 11 May.This growth helped offset weaker performances from other lottery products on the market, such as Lotofácil, which reported a 3.0% decline in revenue to R$1.0m. While Quina, the third largest game in terms of revenue, reported a 14.1% increase to R$0.7m, it remained in third. None of the other seven products in the market generated more than R$0.1m over the quarter.As a result of the revenue growth, money raised for social causes increased significantly in Q2, rising 51.4% year-on-year to R$2.24bn.The figures have been released against a backdrop of change in the Brazilian gaming industry, with SECAP currently drafting a bill to legalise online and land-based sports betting in the country. Following a public consultation, which attracted a record 1,849 submissions, the Ministry of Finance division aims to publish a draft bill later this month. 
To date it has been confirmed that a 1% turnover tax will be levied on licensees, which can secure nine-year licences for an initial fee of R$3m.In addition Brazil’s Investment Partnership Programme (PPI) has launched a new tender to privatise the country’s instant win gaming business Loteria Exclusiva Instantânea (Lotex). After a number of failed attempts, the government has significantly reduced the eligibility requirements, and further staggered payment of the tender fee.Bidders that have operated a business generating R$560m over a calendar year may now apply (the minimum requirement was previously R$1.2bn), and pay the winning bid (set at a minimum of R$542.1m) in eight instalments.Bids are to be submitted by 17 October, with the winner to be selected by 23 December, and the final contract signed by 16 April, 2020.

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Alan Oscroft | Monday, 17th February, 2020 A 2020 stock market crash could be a brilliant share buying opportunity We ended 2019 with bright prospects for the UK stock market, after years of Brexit uncertainty. And I really thought we were headed for a bullish 2020, with little risk of a no-deal EU departure.But what a difference a month can make. Since a peak on 17 January, the FTSE 100 has fallen by 3.2%. A fluctuation of that size, in itself, might not be a big deal. But with Prime Minister Boris Johnson having committed us to do-or-die trade negotiations by the end of the year, the spectre of a no-deal Brexit is very much back.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…And Boris’s usual hand-waving approach to dismissing problems that others see as all too real seems optimistic. Voices from across the EU are increasingly casting doubt on such a timescale, and suggesting talks could be far tougher than the PM thinks.Crash?With serious new doubts arising, we’re facing yet another year of Brexit uncertainty. But could it result in a 2020 stock market crash? Yes, I think it could.For one thing, it’s not just the UK’s Brexit problems;  there are disturbing signs from the US too. Increasing tension with Iran has had some market indices a bit twitchy since the start of the year. And there are fears of continued weak corporate earnings.Then there’s China and the possibly worldwide effect of any further trade war. Think Donald Trump will lose the 2020 presidential election? So far, I’m not seeing any leading Democrat candidate who’s likely to appeal to the middle ground of the US electorate. And that’s surely where the vote will be won and lost.Another four years of President Trump, boosted in confidence by a second victory, and with his gung-ho approach based on an idiosyncratic understanding of economics and diplomacy? I don’t see that as a recipe for global economic success.But, you do know what to make when you’re handed lemons, don’t you? Yep, lemonade.Buy stocksI think a market crash would extend the excellent stock buying opportunities we’ve seen, on and off, since the financial crisis.The FTSE 100 is expected to deliver a 4.7% dividend yield in 2020, and that’s a good bit higher than the long-term average. According to AJ Bell, it would amount to a total of £91.1bn handed out to shareholders. While growth in annual dividends is slowing a little, that would still be a record amount of money for us to chase.It also suggests to me that UK shares are still cheap by historical standards, and I have a number of tempting opportunities lined up as potential investments in 2020.Securing incomeIf my take on share undervaluation is accurate, and if fears of a crash (or even just a downturn) come true, I reckon we could be in for a period of even cheaper shares. But which shares should we buy?I’m keeping my eyes on stocks paying good dividends. Not necessarily the biggest dividends, but ones that look dependable and well covered by earnings. If share prices do dip, I’ll be looking to secure some enhanced long-term dividend income. Share price falls themselves wouldn’t bother me, as I’d expect them to recover over the long term.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

I’d buy Imperial Brands shares right now for its astonishing 10% yield

Image source: Getty Images. Harvey Jones | Tuesday, 17th November, 2020 | More on: IMB The Imperial Brands Group (LSE: IMB) share price has jumped around 6% today after new boss Stefan Bomhard said tobacco volumes and revenues are coming in ahead of expectations following a difficult year.Today’s full-year results to 30 September came as welcome respite to investors in the FTSE 100 tobacco giant. Its shares have more than halved over the last four years while the dividend was slashed in May. Its future looks brighter as it pays down debt, and I would buy it for a balanced income-generating 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…Shares in Imperial Brands are on the up after it reported a 0.8% rise in full-year adjusted group revenue to £7.98bn. Tobacco revenues rose 1.8% albeit with a weaker mix, while adjusted operating profit fell 4.8% to £3.52bn. Bomhard hailed the group’s “resilience” in a difficult year.Still smokingToday’s final results predicted low-to-mid single digit growth in organic adjusted operating profit for 2021, excluding the impact of the sale of its premium cigar business.Imperial Brands shares tumbled last September as earnings flattened and US states cracked down on vaping, following deaths and illnesses. It also issued a profit warning in February. There was further bad news in May, when the board re-based its dividend, cutting the payout by a third to save cash amid flat tobacco sales and falling vaping revenues.Investors won’t be complaining too loudly, given they still get a market-thrashing yield. Right now, Imperial Brands shares yields an incredible 10%, covered 1.8 times by earnings. I can’t see many better income shares around right now.The pandemic hit duty free sales, following the collapse of international travel. It did offer one consolation, though, as tobacco smuggling fell. These two trends are likely to reverse, once we find a way out of the pandemic, although I do not expect travel to spring back that quickly.Imperial Brands shares may stagnateAnybody buying tobacco shares must accept this is a declining market, as smoking slowly but steadily dies out. There is still a long way to go and a lot of sticks will be sold in that time. Boosting market share helps, and the group grew its share in three of its top five markets last year. Imperial Brands should continue to generate plenty of cash to fund its dividend payouts. Future sales declines seems to be fully priced in, with the group’s shares now trading at just 5.3 times forward earnings. City analysts expect those earnings to rise by a steady 4% next year.In another piece of good news for the group, adjusted net debt is falling. It now stands at £10.3bn, around £1bn lower than last year, helped by the disposal of its Premium Cigar arm. The strategic review in January should provide more clarity.In a tough year for income seekers, shares in Imperial Brands look attractive. I would buy them for that mighty income, not so much for the growth. See all posts by Harvey Jones Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The Amsterdam Orphanage was van Eyck’s opportunity to put his opinions in practice through his first large scale built project.

In the Amsterdam Orphanage he sought to design a modern building with a new urban vision from those of his CIAM predecessors.Save this picture!Sketch of PlanCIAM, Congrès internationaux d’architecture moderne, was an organization of architects founded between 1928 and 1959 to promote and discuss the principles of modern architecture. Save this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesTeam 10 was formed as a reaction within CIAM around 1953. As CIAM began to dissolve, van Eyck and a small group of young architects formed their own organization. While they remained autonomous as designers, the Team 10 architects met to share and discuss their work, including van Eyck’s Amsterdam OrphanageSave this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesAt the time of its completion, the Amsterdam Orphanage was located on the outskirts of the city. It was commissioned as an orphanage for children of all ages and includes sleeping quarters, a kitchen, laundry room, gymnasium, library, and administrative spaces. Van Eyck spoke of the Orphanage as a small urban study.Save this picture!PlanHe wrote “a house must be like a small city if it’s to be a real house, a city like a large house if it’s to be a real city” in an essay published in 1962 titled ‘Steps Toward a Configurative Discipline.’Save this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesTherefore van Eyck’s designs for the Orphanage were those of both a home for the children, as well as the plan of a small city. He created a decentralized urban node with many points of interaction within the plan. Van Eyck was interested in a nonhierarchical development of cities and in the Amsterdam Orphanage he created a building with many in-between conditions to break down the hierarchy of spaces.Save this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesThe building is constructed out of two sizes of modules, a smaller size for the residences, and a larger size for community spaces. Save this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesThe modules consist of four round columns at the corners with a domed roof of pre-cast concrete on top. The floor is also concrete. The many facades in the building are either a glass wall or a solid wall made with dark brown bricks.Save this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesWithin the Orphanage, units of program are laid out on an orthogonal grid.  The units project off two diagonal paths so that each unit has multiple exterior facades. By projecting off of a diagonal within the grid, van Eyck creates an equal amount of negative spaces from the positives he’s formed. Each individual unit is then neighbored by its own outdoor space.Save this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesA larger courtyard is offset diagonally from the residential spaces, and the entrance and administrative spaces connect with the street, the large courtyard, as well as the residential units. Van Eyck avoids creating a central point within the Orphanage by allowing for such fluid connections between all spaces.Save this picture!© CCA Mellon LecturesThe Amsterdam Orphanage is van Eyck’s vision of a balanced community. His design earned him international recognition and established his humanist theories in a built project.Residential Architecture, Other•Amsterdam, The Netherlands Photographs:  CCA Mellon LecturesProject gallerySee allShow lessLet it be / ZROBYM architectsSelected ProjectsUniversity of Chicago: Physics Research Center / Perkins EastmanSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Amsterdam, NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.
