Bayer’s Xarelto anti-clotting drug targets potential $15bn market

first_img Bayer’s Xarelto anti-clotting drug targets potential $15bn market KCS-content Wednesday 15 September 2010 7:54 pm whatsapp Germany’s Bayer yesterday said it was targeting a market worth as much as $15bn (£9.6bn) with its anti-blood-clotting pill Xarelto, setting the stage for decisive study results to be released later this year.Chief executive Werner Wenning, who will hand over to Marijn Dekkers next month, said the new generation of experimental anticoagulants such as Xarelto – designed to replace problematic existing treatment warfarin – could have combined annual sales of $12-$15bn.Industry analysts believe the market eyed by Bayer and its development partner Johnson & Johnson could eventually be worth more than $10bn a year and possibly as much as $20bn.Wenning also reconfirmed an estimate for Xarelto, based on the active ingredient rivaroxaban, to have peak annual sales of more than €2bn (£1.7m). A key study on Xarelto will be presented at the American Heart Association meeting in November.

Lithuania makes gambling ad warnings mandatory

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 11th February 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Regions: Europe Baltics Lithuania Lithuania makes gambling ad warnings mandatory Legal & compliance Lithuania’s legislature, the Seimas, has passed a bill that will require all gambling advertisements to include a warning about gambling-related harm from 1 July.The bill is an amendment to Article 10 of the country’s gambling laws and was proposed by Mykolas Majauskas of the Homeland Union Lithuanian Christian Democratic Party. The bill was passed by consensus after no objectoins were raised at its first reading.“Gambling is not an evil in itself, but as the sector develops, it is important to be able to control the risks involved and minimise the negative consequences,” Majauskas said. “There is no need to jam poles into the spokes of the gaming market’s wheels in a way that would pull it off the road, but at least you need to attach reflectors.”Lithuania’s gambling regulator, the Lošimų Priežiūros Tarnyba (Gambling Authority), shall determine the content that must be displayed in the warning.“By law, we would oblige the Gambling Authority to set clear rules and to make notes that would change every time,” Majauskas said. “And we also expect a responsible and sensible approach to how these rules should be applied. That is, they would not apply, for example, to gambling branding on basketball players’ uniforms.”Majauskas said the bill would allow Lithuania to follow the example set by many other EU countries.“Other countries in the European Union have very similar problems, they say: first, we need to educate; secondly, we must help those who have problems; third, we need to help people who have loved ones who have gambling problems,” he explained. “One of the basic tools for solving problems is public education, education through social advertising.“A large number of countries in the European Union ensure that organisations that promote their trademarks […] are accompanied by very simple inscriptions: ‘Do not give up your life to gambling’, ‘You can lose your family as well as your money’.”Majauskas added that he hoped the slogan chosen would be changed periodically, in order to stop viewers of advertisements from becoming too used to any one slogan and it losing its effect.In its announcement of the passing of the bill, the Seimas noted that 510 Lithuanians signed up for the Gambling Authority’s self-exclusion scheme in December 2019 alone, more than the yearly average since the scheme started in 2007.center_img Email Address Lithuania’s legislature, the Seimas, has passed a bill that will require all gambling advertisements to include a warning about gambling-related harm from 1 July.

Every pass, missed an opportunity, formation strategy and foul matters in determining which team will succeed during the semi-finals. Every emotion has been aptly captured in the new TVC.Continuing the popular home and away format for the semi-finals, the team finishing first on the table will look to book a place in the final with ties on March 7th and 11th, whereas the other semi-final on March 9th and 12th will be a battle between the teams finishing 2nd and 3rd. The league stages conclude on March 3rd but Bengaluru FC, FC Goa, Mumbai City FC and NorthEast United FC having already sealed their semi-finals berth and with NorthEast United FC securing their first ever semi-finals spot.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>The final of Hero Indian Super League season 2018-19 will be held in Mumbai on Sunday, March 17. This is the second time that the city of Mumbai has been handed the rights to host the Hero ISL final after the inaugural edition in 2014, between Kerala Blasters and Atletico de Kolkata (now ATK) was held at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.With Mumbai City FC in contention for their first Hero ISL title, Jorge Costa coached team will look to become the first Hero ISL champions to win on home soil.FC Goa’s Ferran Corominas leads the race to Golden Boot Award this year with 14 goals, followed closely by Bartholomew Ogbeche from NorthEast United FC and Modou Sougou from Mumbai City FC with 12 goals apiece. At the other end of the pitch, Bengaluru FC’s Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (90 minutes per goal conceded), Mumbai City FC’s custodian Amrinder Singh (89.56 minutes per goal conceded) and NorthEast United FC’s wall Pawan Kumar (83.92 minutes per goal conceded) lead the Golden Glove Award race.Like in the previous year, the semi-final stage of Hero Indian Super League 2018-19 season will have the ‘away goal’ rule to decide the winner if the aggregate goal difference between the two teams is zero (0) at the end of normal playing time after the second leg.As per the away goal rule, the team that scored more away goals will be declared the winner of the tie. To explain, Team A (home) beats Team B (away) by 2-1 in the first leg and Team B (home) beats Team A (away) 3-2 in the second leg – the goal difference over two legs is zero (aggregate score of 4-4). In this case Team A qualifies for the final as it scored 2 away goals compared to Team B which scored 1 away goal.Hero Indian Super League season 2018-19 semi-finals and final will be broadcast on the Star Sports network on the following channels Star Sports 1/HD, Star Sports 1 HINDI/HD, Star Sports 3, Star Sports 1 Tamil, Colors Kannada Cinema SD, Star Sports1 Bangla, Jalsha Movies, Asianet Movies and Northeast Live.

2 FTSE 100 stocks I would avoid during the market crash

first_img Jabran Khan has no position in any shares mentioned. 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. Jabran Khan | Tuesday, 31st March, 2020 | More on: RMV TW The Covid-19 pandemic has halted life as we know it. Global markets have been in free fall and those with investments have been panic-selling. Others have been looking for opportunities to pick up some bargains. Most industries are affected directly or indirectly by the government lockdown and global health crisis.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…One of the main ones has been the property sector. Moving home as well as house building has ground to a halt in all forms. The property market has experienced a slowdown. Buying and selling properties is virtually impossible at this time. Although construction sites are still operating, much to the annoyance of some of its workers, housebuilders have taken measures to protect themselves. That said, there are two particular stocks I would avoid during this market crash. They are Rightmove (LSE:RMV) and Taylor Wimpey (LSE:TW).RightmoveThe UK’s largest real estate website will be hugely affected by current events. Government advice has urged buyers and sellers to delay the process. Since the market crash, it has seen a decrease of approximately 35% in share price. At the time of writing it is trading close to 500p a share. I would not view this an opportunity and there are other bargains to be had. Generally speaking, performance for Rightmove has been promising. It released full-year results until 31 December 2019. This period, compared to last year, saw an impressive increase in revenue by 8%, as well as an 8% increase in operating profit. Dividend per share jumped by over 10% which will be seen as an attractive prospect for potential investors. Traffic to the website was up 2% also. It had its busiest-ever month in January with more than 150 million visits. The top five busiest days ever on the site were all between 21 and 29 January, with Wednesday 29 topping the list with more than 5.7 million visits, up 9% on the previous record set on 24 April 2019.Although the results are strong, the coronavirus will paralyse such businesses. Rightmove’s current price-to-earnings ratio sits close to 25 which to me displays the risk involved right now. The short-term future is not bright enough for me to risk buying some shares here. House it going?Taylor Wimpey, one of the UK’s largest housebuilders, has followed government advice and decided to close all its sales offices and construction sites. Its share price took an almost 45% hit when the market crashed. Currently trading near to 120p, some would view this a cheap share to pick up. My train of thought could not be more different. With no real insight into when the pandemic may end, the financial hit they take could mean a long road to recovery for Taylor Wimpey and some of its counterparts. Last week saw it release full-year results to 31 December 2019 and an update regarding Covid-19. Profits were up just over 3% compared to 2018, and the annual completion rate up over 5%. In a normal market these are positive takeaways. However, with the current crisis, Taylor Wimpey has followed the suit of many other companies and cancelled its final dividend as it battens down the hatches and preserves cash. With the success of Taylor Wimpey, and other housebuilders for that matter, being so closely aligned with the pandemic, I would steer clear of all these types of stocks.

£1k to invest? I’d use the Warren Buffett method to double my money investing in shares

first_img£1k to invest? I’d use the Warren Buffett method to double my money investing in shares Enter Your Email Address Peter Stephens | Thursday, 21st January, 2021 Warren Buffett has become one of the richest people on earth by investing in shares using a relatively simple strategy. His focus on buying high-quality companies when they trade at low prices has enabled him to outperform the stock market on a fairly consistent basis.As such, following his plan could be a shrewd move. It could reduce the amount of time it takes to double an initial investment of £1k, or any other amount, over the coming years.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…Warren Buffett’s quality focusClearly, determining whether a company is a high-quality operation is very subjective. Different investors are likely to have opposing views on the subject. However, Warren Buffett focuses on areas such as a company’s competitive advantage and financial situation when deciding whether it’s attractive or not.Examples of competitive advantages that could increase the appeal of a business include unique products, strong customer loyalty and a low cost base that provides the scope for higher margins. Meanwhile, companies with modest debt levels and strong free cash flow may be more likely to survive periods of economic weakness.Through buying stocks with competitive advantages, Warren Buffett tilts the investment odds in his favour. Such businesses are more likely to deliver profit growth in the long run that has a positive impact on their share prices.Buying undervalued sharesBuying high-quality companies is just one part of Buffett’s investment strategy. Importantly, he aims to buy such companies when they trade at low prices. This provides greater scope for capital growth over the long run. That’s opposed to buying them at high prices that may already incorporate market expectations of their future growth potential.Companies can trade at low prices for a variety of reasons. For example, at the present time, they may be experiencing challenges caused by coronavirus. Or they may be struggling to deliver rising sales because of economic weakness. In such instances, there may be opportunities for long-term investors, such as Warren Buffett, to take advantage of their short-lived low valuations.Doubling an investment in sharesBuffett’s strategy has consistently allowed him to outperform the stock market. But even tracking an index such as the FTSE 250 could allow an investor to double their initial investment in shares over the long run. For example, the mid-cap index has produced annualised total returns of 9% in the last 20 years.

How two former school mates are facing each other for Women’s World Cup glory

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Welcome to my town: Rob Jones shows Sam Whitelock and Aaron Smith around CardiffCokayne’s promise was soon recognized as she progressed from provincial rugby with Manawatu to a Black Fern triallist where for the first time in her career she found her progress stalled, in large part, due to her age, 16 and the fact that captain and World Cup winner Fiao’o Faamausili, was filling the Black Fern No 2 shirt. “The coaches didn’t give her the time of day and I knew about Amy’s English roots, so I said to her, where’s your heart, who would you like to play for?” She said, “I’m English, I want to play for England but it’s not going to happen.” I told her not to give up.Jones phoned the RFU and tracked down Gary Street, the former England head coach. “I told him I had a Black Fern triallist, who wanted to play for England. I knew the Red Roses were coming over to play the Black Ferns in the summer of 2013 and we agreed to meet at a Starbucks in Auckland. The rest, as they say, is history.”Amy Cokayne and Sarah Goss turn out for Fielding High SchoolJones says both girls, who took on leadership roles and Feilding High School, are role models for the next generation. “Sarah is fantastic with the younger kids. She always gives time to the school at the shortest notice. Nothing is ever a problem. She takes coaching sessions because she’s desperate to see the growth of women’s rugby. I can’t speak highly enough of her. Amy is of the same mould, and only too happy to help out.”The staff at the school have erected a good luck message to the girls, and are thrilled that two of their former pupils are appearing in a World Cup final, with another member of staff also involved. “Their assistant coach, Wesley Clark, is our coaching coordinator at school. He’s had a massive input on both of them, too.”A keen advocate of the women’s game, Jones says it’s a real fillip that the final is on prime time TV in the UK. “We still have a long way to go to but the more publicity we have the better. Personally, I’d like to see it aligned with the men’s World Cup, as a curtain raiser to the World Cup final – how good would that be?”Good luck girls: Fielding High School are very proud of their former pupilsOf the upcoming final, Jones says there will be plenty of verbals before the final. “Gossy and Amy are friends. They played together in school and at Manawatu in Sevens and fifteens. There will be heaps of banter and they’ll be having a crack at each other on the field but whoever wins, I’m sure they’ll be sharing a beer together afterwards, which is how it should be.” Sarah Goss and Amy Cokayne used to play rugby together for Fielding High School and face each other for World Cup. RW speaks to their former coach, who hails from Cardiff So who will the Welshman be backing? “I want England to have a good game but with my wife and four daughter’s Kiwis, I’d better play safe and say New Zealand.”center_img Proud trio: Rob Jones with World Cup finalists, Amy Cokayne and Sarah Goss “Hold on, I’m just watching a re-run of the All Blacks semi-final. That was a walloping, wasn’t it? Portia Woodman is outstanding, a real specimen. She wouldn’t look out of place in the Bledisloe this weekend!”I’m speaking to Rob Jones, Head of PE at Feilding High School, two hours North of Wellington, on New Zealand’s North Island.After 13 years spent 12,000 miles away from home in the small village of Creigiau, where he grew up playing rugby at Pontyclun RFC, Jones’ vowels are a mix of South Walian and North Island but there’s no mistaking the pride in his voice when talking about two former pupils, Sarah Goss and Amy Cokayne, who are set to go toe-to-toe in the Women’s World Cup final on Saturday evening.Jones, a rugby-mad Welshman, ended up on the other side of the world after being diagnosed with testicular cancer while teaching in the Scilly Isles, which led to him taking a decision that would change his life. “I decided I wanted to see the world. My friends who had been travelling recommended New Zealand, so I sent off 28 job applications and the only people to get back to me were Feilding High School. I headed over there without a clue what to expect. That was in 2004!”Pace to burn: Amy Cokayne shows a clean pair of heels to the Irish defenceFeilding High school has a long-list of former All Blacks including World Cup winners Sam Whitelock and Aaron Smith, while scorer of the first try in the Lions Series Codie Taylor, is another notable alumni.None however, has impressed Jones more than Goss, the fearless Black Ferns openside who came through a few years ahead of England’s rumbustious, and equally impressive hooker, Amy Cokayne.Speaking of Goss, Jones said she started rugby, as a way keeping fit for hockey in her early teens. “In Year 9, she rocked up an asked if she could play rugby for a bit of extra fitness, so I started her on the wing, so she could pick up the game and within years, she was playing at 10 for the school.”Multi-talented: Sarah Goss is a Black Ferns Sevens star tooWhat stood out most to her coach was her relentless work ethic. “Sarah’s a farm-girl and one of the hardest workers you’ll ever meet. She has a great skill-set and while she may not have the wheels of Portia Woodman, she’s integral to the Black Ferns.”As for Cokayne, three years Goss’ junior, she came to Jones’ attention at a similar age, when her father Ian, was posted in New Zealand with the RAF. Her talent and mental resolve soon became apparent. “Amy had played a lot more rugby than Sarah. She comes from a big military family and had trials with Aston Villa – she’s a brilliant goalkeeper. Sport courses through her veins and she was the North Island record javelin holder. As a player, she’s very physical, very dominant and totally fearless. She’s bit like Jamie George in a way. She has really good skills and a real a turn of pace. I’d love to see her in Sevens, because she’s certainly good enough.”last_img read more
