Camelot set for six-month UK National Lottery extension

first_img Topics: Lottery Lottery Camelot Group is set to sign an extension to its contract to continue operating the UK’s National Lottery for an additional six months to the end of July 2023, with a tender process for the next licence having been delayed by three months. Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Camelot Group is set to sign an extension to its contract to continue operating the UK’s National Lottery for an additional six months to the end of July 2023, with a tender process for the next licence having been delayed by three months.Speaking to iGB, a Camelot spokesperson said that the operator has received notice in writing from the GB Gambling Commission to extend the Third Licence to run the National Lottery.“We remain focused on continuing to build on the strong performance we have achieved over the last three years and delivering even more money for good causes, funding which is vitally important during this unprecedented time,” the spokesperson said.A Commission spokesperson confirmed that the launch of the tender has now been officially delayed by three months, primarily due to challenges caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The Commission did not disclose exactly when the process would commence, but it did state that the Selection Questionnaire, which marks the first phase of the competition, would not be issued before August.Given that the last target was the first half of the year, this seems to suggest that the tender will launch in either late September or early October.“Having considered the market’s feedback on challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to delay the launch of the competition by three months,” the GC spokesperson explained. “As a result, the Selection Questionnaire will not be issued before August and we will review the circumstances up until that point.“During this period of high uncertainty, the extended timetable is designed to enable potential applicants to make adequate preparations for a fair, open and robust competition.”Camelot has operated the National Lottery since its inception in 1994, with new contracts awarded to the company in 2001 and 2007. It’s most recent licence had been due to expire at the start of 2023.The Commission had been set to launch the tender to award the fourth National Lottery licence early this year and last July announced the appointment of two executives to lead the process. John Tanner was to serve as executive director and senior responsible officer, with support from Andrew Wilson as commercial director.However, the process, which was expected to begin in March, was delayed, which led to criticism from potential bidders, who said that this reduced the chances of a serious challenge to Camelot’s tenure. At the time, both the Commission and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport said it would launch in the first half of the year.Earlier this month, it was revealed that the UK National Lottery was able to generate a record £7.91bn (€8.76bn/$9.82bn) in total ticket sales in its 2019-20 fiscal year, aided by significant year-on-year growth from its digital offering.Overall sales in the 12 months to 31 March 2020 were up 9.7% from £7.21bn in the same period in the previous year, with investment in digital channels leading to record online sales of £2.46bn, up 34.0% on last year, and the first time sales for Camelot’s online offering surpassed £2.0bn.center_img 22nd June 2020 | By contenteditor Camelot set for six-month UK National Lottery extension AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more

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. Enter Your Email Address Tom Rodgers | Saturday, 28th December, 2019 | More on: BA MGGT TPG “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Tom Rodgers owns shares in TP Group. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Meggitt. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. With the controversial £4bn sale of historic British manufacturer Cobham, it’s clear that UK defence shares will never go out of fashion. And in his September 2019 spending review, Chancellor Sajid Javid further committed to funding the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to the tune of £2.2bn over the next two years, an increase of 2.6%.FTSE-listed firms in this sector continue to flourish, in prime position to win long-term, stable, and lucrative, contracts from the MoD and armed forces around the world. 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…BAEBAE (LSE:BA.) engineers build the aft fuselage for the next-gen F-35 fighter jet, and alongside working on the UK’s Dreadnought nuclear submarines, also repair US Navy ships. BAE won a $171m maintenance contract for the latter in September 2019. Its electronic systems division won a $2.7bn contract the same month to build laser-guided APKWS rockets with sales planned to Lebanon, the Netherlands, Australia and Tunisia.BAE shares come with a healthy 3.8% dividend and are priced relatively cheaply for a company this size, with a trailing P/E ratio of just 13. This is one for long-term income investors, with dividends per share rising steadily since 2014, always with cover of 1.8 times earnings or more.A November 2019 trading update showed earnings per share growing in the mid-single digit percent range, with BAE targeting £3bn of free cash flow between now and 2021. Despite the low-interest-rate environment putting pressure on pensions, I think an investment in BAE is a solid long-term play.MeggittThe return of Meggitt (LSE:MGGT) to the FTSE 100 in 2019 came after a four-year hiatus. Those interim years were particularly tough for the components manufacturer and while revenues were rising, profits were going nowhere fast.Meggitt has benefitted from the astronomical increase in US military spending under President Trump. CEO Tony Wood’s decision to ramp up the Bournemouth-based firm’s American operations has been reflected in the share price.November 2019 brought the good news of a six-year $130m contract win with the US Defence Logistics Agency to supply fuel tanks to the F/A-18 Super Hornet, the V-22 Osprey and the Super Stallion helicopter. Margins have been hit by Boeing’s catastrophic handling of the 737Max, for which Meggitt makes the engine fire detector system, but the manufacturer still upgraded 2019’s revenue guidance given a particularly strong performance across the year.TP Group£51m market cap firm TP Group (LSE:TPG) is much smaller than any of the other defence specialists on this list. Changing its name from Corac in 2015 reflected a switch from research to engineering, and the company now focuses on its space, intelligence and maritime divisions.In September 2019, it won a £1m MoD contract to upgrade Royal Navy submarines with 750 oxygen generators, following on from a February contract win to furnish the fleet with life-saving lithium hydroxide curtains.TP Group’s balance sheet is looking the healthiest it has in years. Cash at bank hit £22m in 2019, with earnings per share ticking over into the black for the first time in five years as revenues rose accordingly. Adjusted earnings were up 85% between 2017 and 2018, with order books hitting £48.3m. If this momentum continues, I’d expect the share price to rocket forward in the next three to five years.

See all posts by Paul Summers Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Here at the Fool UK, we think it’s never too soon to begin investing. Thanks to the power of compound interest (or the ‘snowball effect’), the earlier you get involved, the better your chances are of making a mint from the markets.Having said this, there are a few things all new investors should really try to avoid. 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…1. Starting without a solid foundationThree things need to happen before you buy a single stock, in my opinion.  First, make sure you’ve completely wiped any high-interest debt. Investing is all very well, but doing so while still carrying debt is the equivalent of taking one step forward and two back. Second, have some ‘rainy day’ savings for life’s little emergencies. A few months’ of expenses should be sufficient to get you by. Third, open a Stocks and Shares ISA. Fail to do this and you’ll end up handing back a proportion of what you make to the taxman.   Those who choose to bypass the above will be taking far more risk than necessary before they’ve even get started.2. Investing everything in one goAs a market newbie, it can be tempting to assume you need to put all your money to work in one fell swoop. Thankfully, this isn’t the case. While it’s never a good idea to stay in cash for too long (inflation will gradually erode its value), all major brokers now offer the option of making regular monthly investments. As well as paying less in commission to acquire stock, this strategy also ensures you won’t invest everything at the top of the market.Not needing to rush is one of the few advantages private investors have over professional money managers who are required to chase performance to keep their jobs. Don’t squander it. 3. Ignoring diversificationEven the best companies experience setbacks. If you’re going to pick your own stocks from the outset, it’s therefore vital to spread your money around.This usually means buying stocks in different industries (such as housebuilders, retailers, pharmaceuticals) but it could also be applied to the size of businesses (not too many small-caps). Moreover, it’s a good idea to buy firms that aren’t too dependent on trading in just one part of the world. How many stocks is enough? Research suggests roughly 20-25 should give you all the diversification you need.4. Buying what’s popularAnother rookie error is to only buy those stocks that have had a good run in the last few weeks or months. While it can be very profitable, the issue with this approach — known as ‘momentum investing’ — is that momentum can disappear very quickly, causing share prices to fall. This is usually exacerbated in popular stocks as they tend to have very rich valuations.If you must buy something hot, try balancing it out with something that offers value and/or income. 5. Not being botheredThe rationale behind stock picking is very simple: we buy shares in the hope of selling them on for a higher price. In reality, it requires effort, patience and the ability to keep emotions in check.If you suspect that your commitment to researching companies and monitoring their performance may last about as long as your 2020 gym subscription, it may be best to avoid buying individual stocks and put money in cheap, market-tracking funds instead.center_img Paul Summers | Tuesday, 31st December, 2019 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Forget gold! I’d build a fortune with shares following the stock market crash

first_imgForget gold! I’d build a fortune with shares following the stock market crash Image source: Getty Images. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The price of gold has been shooting up like a rocket and now trades within a whisker of its all-time high. Such movements can be eye-catching. But I think there’s a great opportunity to invest in shares right now following the stock market crash. I’d choose shares over gold to build a fortune.The ‘problem’ with gold is every previous high has been briefly held. The price of gold has so far always crashed back down from its peaks almost as fast as it reached them. My fear is that we could see a fast plunge this time as well.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 stock market crash has generated opportunitiesAfter all, gold tends to rise when economic times are uncertain. Right now, we have the coronavirus pandemic damaging economies around the world. And because of it, companies can’t even give us any forward guidance on earnings in many cases. Nobody is sure how long or hard the recession will be. Uncertainty has never been higher and that reflects in the price of gold.One scenario that could collapse the price of gold and boost the stock market is the delivery of a working vaccine for Covid-19. The economic outlook will likely change dramatically once a vaccine begins to roll out. And it could happen soon. My guess is the days of high gold prices could be numbered.Meanwhile, shares have been beaten down. And if you view the trading challenges facing the businesses that are underlying the shares as temporary, we could be seeing a decent buying opportunity. Ten years from now, the stocks you’ve bought today may prove to have been great investments. There’s a good chance the pandemic will be a distant memory by then and business will have staged a strong recovery from today’s challenging times.Multiple investment strategiesOf course, not all shares are struggling. Some are thriving in the current economic environment, such as gold miner Centamin. The strength of the stock is unsurprising given the high price of gold. However, as with betting on the price of gold directly, I’d argue that the strong rally so far this year increases the risk. Indeed, an investment now would be exposed to what I see as a strong possibility of the gold price retreating at some point.Other strong performers recently include online electrical products retailer AO World and internet security software supplier Avast. We’ve also seen robust rises from distribution and services company Bunzl and betting and gaming operator Flutter Entertainment.One popular investing strategy involves researching and analysing the companies behind shares leading the market, such as those I’ve described. Indeed, going with proven winners can be effective. However, I’d be wary now in case the boost in trading of these companies is Covid-dependent. The arrival of a vaccine could change things.Another approach involves taking a contrarian stance. For example, housebuilder shares look beaten down right now, such as Persimmon, Redrow, Taylor Wimpey and Vistry. However, recent news about the relaxing of planning laws and the ongoing low rates for mortgage borrowing make the sector look attractive.Whichever approach you take to investing, I reckon there are better opportunities to build a fortune with shares right now than there are with gold. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

3 FTSE 100 shares I’d buy with £5,000 in another stock market crash

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Stock markets can be notoriously hard to predict in the short term, as is evident from the market rally we’ve witnessed this month. No sooner did the vaccine news and the Biden win happen, that the FTSE 100 index started running up. As a consequence, shares I had pencilled in as some of my next buying options have seen unexpected share price increases. Even though I think these are solid stocks with much value to add over the long term, I think they’ll be an even better purchase for £5,000 if a stock market crash brings their prices down a notch or two. Here are three of them:#1. Antofagasta: Betting on copperThe Chilean copper miner’s share price is at multi-year highs now, driven crucially by a return of demand. Improvements in the Chinese economy have impacted copper prices positively, which should bode well for Antofagasta. Additionally, its latest production update is packed with positives. Despite some setback to copper output in the latest quarter, production is as per expectations for all three quarters of 2020. 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…It also reports lower cash costs compared to last year. It expects production to pick up next year and it has successfully concluded negotiations with its labour unions. Further, it’s already a financially healthy company in a growth environment. What’s not to like? Except maybe, the run-up in share price. #2. JD Sports Fashion: Long forgotten market crashI already own shares in JD Sports Fashion, and it has been one of the best performers in my investment portfolio. This is in part because of the unstoppable rise in its share price. In the months since the stock market crash in March, its share price has more than doubled. Even better is the fact that this is still lower than where it was at the start of the year, which suggests it can rise more.Despite having to close down its stores earlier in 2020, JD was in the green at the last update. I expect that its next set of numbers due early next year will show improvements, as the lockdowns lifted in the period since the last update. I’d buy more if there’s another crash.#3. Taylor Wimpey: Improving outlookThe FTSE 100 real estate company’s positive trading statement coincided with both the vaccine news and Biden’s win. It’s little surprise then, that its share price has gained over 45% in the last month alone. Its positive outlook for 2021 can now quite likely get another boost now. I reckon TW’s share price will continue to rise in the future. Further, I think compared to many other FTSE 100 stocks it still looks quite affordable with a sub-14 times earnings ratio. To get even better returns, I’d wait for at least some drop in the stock price, however, and then invest £5,000 or any other amount that seems appropriate.
