Moore of the same after 25 years on top

first_imgProperty shares are looking much better value than physical property and there is a need for consolidation in the sector with too many companies and liquidity only in the leading stocks.This is the sort of property analyst’s message that the industry has become used to in the 1990s. But the same message was being heard 50 years ago when Warburg (then known as Hurst-Brown, Buckmaster and Peter Hicks) began property research.Warburg’s first note, which came out in January 1949, was re-published this week to celebrate the broker’s 50 years of research and the retirement of head analyst Roger Moore after 25 years.Moore was arguably the doyen of property analysts and, until recently, was voted the best in the sector every year.Fifty years ago, there were 132 quoted property companies – roughly the same number as today.‘Very little changes over the cycles other than the names of companies and personalities,’ concludes Moore.‘Property will always be a sector prone to feast or famine and one in which fortunes can be made with little equity capital outlay won or lost. History shows that the shrewd investor cystallises or consolidates gains but those who become so intoxicated by their success that they begin to think they are infallible often lose their fortunes in cataclysmic fashion.’last_img read more

first_imgNASCAR lost one of its legends Friday when Junior Johnson died at age 88. Johnson was one of the most successful drivers and team owners in the sport’s early decades, and he was a part of the inaugural NASCAR Hall of Fame Class in 2010. He also attracted a devoted fan base through his backstory of outrunning the law as he hauled moonshine across North Carolina, an endeavor that, in turn, led to him running stock cars.

first_imgExecutives from the Guyana National B r o a d c a s t i n g Authority (GNBA) and the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) met on Thursday to discuss collaboration for the upcoming March 2, 2020, General and Regional Elections. Attending the meeting on behalf of the GNBA were Board Chairman Leslie Sobers, Board Member and Chair of the Monitoring and Compliance Committee Jocelyne Josiah, Board Secretary Violet Boyal, Head of the Monitoring and Compliance Department Christina Bianchini, and Public Relations Officer Joel Ally. On GECOM’s side were Chairman Justice Claudette Singh, Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield, and Public Relations Officer Yolanda Ward. Sobers gave a synopsis of the mandate of the GNBA and the scope of the authority with respect to its monitoring parameters and capacity. The Chairman alluded to the fact that GECOM has a wider mandate as it relates to monitoring during the elections period, and it is the intention of the Authority to collaborate with the Guyana Elections Commission and the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) during the elections period. He went on to explain that the Authority, similar to the ERC and GECOM, monitors for content that may incite racial hatred or crime and public disorder, with respect to broadcasting. He pointed out that enshrined in the Broadcasting Act, there is a fairness doctrine which means that broadcasters, when dealing with controversial issues, must cater for balance and fairness with respect to treatment, time and space allocation. Board member Josiah informed GECOM representatives that there is an entire department at the GNBA that monitors content. She proffered that the Code of Conduct for GECOM needs to be reviewed and updated in preparation for the upcoming elections; GECOM representatives agreed. PRO Ally informed the meeting that the populace is gradually moving away from the mainstream media and social media is continuously growing. He added that reporters in addition to signing on to the Media Code of Conduct should also reflect those principles stipulated in the Code of Conduct when posting content and opinions on social platforms; being cognisant of the fact that they have an influence on their followers.????????????????????????????????????last_img read more
