Australia regulator extends gambling ad ban to streaming

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Legal & compliance New rules will come into effect from September 28 Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Gambling operators in Australia are to face tougher restrictions on advertising after the country’s national media regulator confirmed plans to extend a ban on betting adverts during live sport events to cover streaming platforms.The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) announced the move earlier today (Wednesday), with the ban to apply to all sporting events streamed live between 5am and 8:30pm.The amended laws also state that gambling advertising is restricted at all other times outside this period.Last month, the ACMA set out proposals to add streaming platforms to an initial list of restrictions set out in March, which ban gambling ads during daytime live sports broadcasts on television channels.Contributions to the proposed changes were invited up to July 26.The ACMA, which made the amendments in line with the Australian Government policy on stricter advertising restrictions for the gambling industry, said the new laws will come into effect from September 28.ACMA chair Nerida O’Loughlin said: “This is the first time that online services streaming live sport have been required to comply with gambling advertising restrictions.“This brings online services in line with television and radio broadcasting services. It creates a safe zone for children and families to watch live sport across a variety of platforms.”Under the original regulations, the ban did not apply to so-called “low-audience” sports channels that attracted an average of under 100,000 unique end users per month.However, a spokesperson for the regulator told iGamingBusiness.com last month that the ACMA “no longer proposes to make this class exemption for small online content service providers”.The regulator intends to monitor the impact of the new rules over a 12-month period, after which it will consider whether to conduct a formal review of the stricter approach.Image: Flickerd 29th August 2018 | By contenteditor Australia regulator extends gambling ad ban to streaming Regions: Oceania Australia Email Addresslast_img read more

Buy-to-let investor numbers at 7-YEAR lows! I’d rather buy these FTSE 100 dividend stars

first_img Image source: Getty Images. See all posts by Royston Wild Buy-to-let investor numbers at 7-YEAR lows! I’d rather buy these FTSE 100 dividend stars Are buy-to-let investors finally catching a break? Tales of rising tax bills, swelling operating costs, and heaps of increased regulation have dominated the financial pages in recent years. But the start of a new calendar year has revealed some encouraging news for investors when it comes to rent. Particularly for those who happen to own property north of the border.If rents are ballooning, however, why are buy-to-let investors leaving in their droves?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 exodus continues!Data released today from Hamptons International underlines the scale of the landlord exodus in Britain. The number of buy-to-let operators fell 8% (or 222,570) in 2019 to 2.66m, the estate agency says, from the record peak of 2.88m in 2017. Last year’s figure is also the lowest for seven years when there were 2.58m investors knocking around.Hamptons notes that “tax and regulatory changes have caused some landlords to sell up and leave the sector.” This caused the number of available homes for rent to drop to 5.13m last year too. This is also a reduction of 156,410 from those peaks of two years earlier.Source: EHS, Gov.Scot, Stats Wales & Hamptons InternationalThat Hamptons report revealed something curious though. While the number of landlords is in decline, the size of the property portfolio of those still involved is rising. The average UK landlord now owns 1.93 properties, according to the agency. This is the highest level since 2009 and is “a further sign that the sector is professionalising,” Hamptons says.Better buysThis latest study underlines the growing financial strain the average buy-to-let investor faces today. Reports show that returns from the property rental sector have taken a hammering of late. And a growing number have little confidence that investing conditions are going to improve any time soon.I certainly haven’t bothered with buy-to-let. Wanting a slice of the UK property sector, I instead decided to park my cash in FTSE 100 housebuilders Barratt Developments and Taylor Wimpey. Investing in those other Footsie shares Persimmon and The Berkeley Group is also a good option for long-term investors.Getting rich the Foolish wayFirstly, buying Taylor Wimpey and Barratt didn’t require the sort of heaving up-front costs buy-to-let buying involves. I didn’t need to stump up a deposit, large solicitor fees, stamp duty, or a raft of other miscellaneous costs. I also knew I wouldn’t have to worry about how I’d pay back a mortgage if tenants failed to pay the rent, or during times when the property laid vacant.The exceptional value these blue-chips offered was also hugely attractive. Forward P/E ratios that sat way, way below the FTSE 100 average of around 15 times. And truly-staggering dividend yields that mashed those of most other shares on the index.Little has changed on either front since I took the plunge. Those four firms I mentioned offer payout yields ranging 5% and 8%. What’s more, each trade on very-attractive earnings multiples of between 11 times and 15 times too.And with government getting tougher and tougher with landlords, I’d say that these stocks are more appealing than buy-to-let than ever before “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

How to invest in the stock market

High volatility in stock markets around the world has seen billions of pounds of value added and taken away from blue-chip companies. You’ve maybe twigged to the fact that you and your friends have been ordering deliveries on Ocado a lot more over the past few months. A quick look at the Ocado share price shows that the stock has surged in value since the start of the pandemic. The same can be said of US-listed firm Zoom, and many others. This has led you to search for how to invest in the stock market, and landed you here!First things firstInvesting in the stock market can be a very rewarding experience. But before you actually enjoy the feeling of seeing a stock rise in value, you need to get your basics right. Firstly, you need to get yourself set up on a platform where you can buy and sell stocks. There are countless providers out there for this.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…Make sure that whoever you choose also has the ability to operate your Stocks and Shares ISA for you. An ISA is a valuable tool provided by the government that allows you to invest up to £20,000 a year without paying tax on the proceeds. So if you’d invested in Ocado at the beginning of the year and were now sitting on a 75% gain, this profit would be all yours.Also, be careful not to mistakenly sign up and start using a trading account with leverage when investing. There’s a difference between buying £1,000 worth of HSBC stock in your ISA, and leveraging £1,000 fifty times on a spread betting account. The latter actually gives you a £50,000 position, which means your losses could exceed your initial deposit amount.Investing tipsOnce you’re all ready to go, it’s up to you what you want to buy. Some stocks you’ll have already heard about and want to buy. Some great success stories in the public eye are Ocado, JD Sports, and Rightmove. Even as a UK investor, you can buy US-listed stocks as well, such as Amazon and Tesla.Try to mix up what you invest in, both in the amount and the sector. Splitting up your initial investment between a dozen stocks should serve you much better than putting everything into one company. Mixing up sectors as well should help to diversify your overall portfolio. If you just invest in one sector, then you could be very exposed to something negative impacting that set of businesses.Once you’ve invested, try and forget about the stock for the moment. Try to detach yourself from the emotional side of investing and be purely subjective. For example, let’s say you buy Ocado shares now with the aim of selling when you reach 20% profit. Set an alert for this level, along with one if it falls by 20%. Then leave it. Monitoring the share price every hour of every day is only going to send you crazy!This is not a complete guide on how to invest in the stock market. It’s merely a taster of some things to do.

The ITV share price has jumped! Here’s what I’d do

Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Since the beginning of the year, the ITV (LSE: ITV) share price has jumped. The stock is up 10% since the the first day of January. Its performance over the past six months and 12 months is even more impressive. Over these periods, shares in the free-to-air broadcaster have increased by 85% and 15% respectively. This performance only gives a snapshot of the company’s investor returns. Over the past five years, excluding dividends paid to investors, the stock has lost more than 50%. As ITV’s market capitalisation has dwindled, it has also been booted out of the FTSE 100.5G 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…However, past performance should never be used as a guide to future potential. And with that in mind, I’ve recently been reviewing the business to see if it could be worth adding the ITV share price to my portfolio as the company’s outlook improves. Improving outlook Shares in ITV plunged to a multi-year low in March of last year. It looked as if the company would suffer a significant decline in revenues due to the pandemic. As advertisers pulled their spending, and the organisation was forced to mothball its production business, revenues plummeted and it eliminated its dividend. As a result, investors deserted the group.But by the end of the year, these headwinds had vanished. In its trading update for the nine months to the end of September 2020, ITV reported total external revenue had declined 16% year-on-year, but growth had returned in the fourth quarter. This seems to explain some of the recent performance of the ITV share price. With the firm’s outlook improving, investors have returned to the stock.At this point, it’s unclear if this trend will continue. ITV has reported an increase in total viewing over the past 12 months, but so have other streaming services. As most people have been stuck at home since the beginning of the pandemic, that makes sense. What’s less certain is what happens next. For example, will these viewers remain with ITV after the pandemic or, with less time for TV, will they focus on other entertainment platforms? ITV share price: uncertainty At this point, that’s impossible to answer. This is currently the most significant risk facing the business. Streaming platforms have invested tens of billions of dollars in new content over the past 12 months. ITV can’t compete with this level of spending.The group has earmarked additional spending for its online service and BritBox offer. These figures pale in comparison to spending by the online streaming giants. Still, City analysts are expecting the group to report earnings of around 9.4p per share for 2020, rising to 10.7p for 2021. Based on these projections, the stock is trading at a multiple of 10.9 times forward earnings, compared to the media sector average of 16.While these are just forecasts and there’s no guarantee the business will hit these earnings targets, I think they highlight its potential for the next 12 months.As such, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today, despite the risks and challenges the business may face in the near term.  Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%.

It will continue east on Martin to Park Ave and turn right going by both Dream Lake Elementary and Apopka Middle where the kids will also be waving American flags.

November 5, 2018 at 7:59 pm November 6, 2018 at 11:16 am November 5, 2018 at 4:36 pm I am so much looking forward to seeing the wall for the first time. Not sure what my reaction or emotions will be seeing the names of those 58,000 plus names that went over there, but weren’t able to come home with the rest of us that walked that soil, waded those rice paddies, flew those skies, and navigated those waterways protecting the freedom that we all appreciate today! Those soldiers and their families gave it all, for all of us!!center_img I have seen this wall before, back when my mother was still living, and we drove to see it. I can’t remember exactly what year it was, but it was a long long time ago, maybe even 25 years ago, possibly, not sure. We drove out to the area near the Orlando Fashion Square Mall back behind there, where it used to be a Navy base, I believe. This is where the wall was set up, and we walked all along back and forth, and I remember how upsetting it was to me, to see the visual images of all the young military member’s names that were killed, and the toll that war takes, and the families left behind forever here on earth. I knew only one boy that was killed in Vietnam, personally. I should say, man, not boy, as he was a man, and a very honorable one. He rode our school bus, as he was a senior kid, and I was much younger than he was. I have written about the mean kids that rode our school bus, but he was not one of them. No, he was mild natured, smiled a lot, and easy going. He had beautiful olive colored naturally tan colored skin, beautiful shiny black hair, and was somewhat chunky, weight-wise. My description is, think Elvis….if I am not getting him mixed up with his brother. It has been a long time ago. He was the nicest guy ever. He got off the bus with his siblings about a mile from my bus stop. I didn’t really know what happened to him until years later, and I found out he went off to war, after high school graduation, and drove over a land mine, after only being there in Vietnam for 13 days. He has a daughter that he never got to see, I have learned from reading on the internet about him. I don’t know how I will react, if I go view the wall, and see his name there on the wall, because I remember him from our school bus route, as a much older student than myself. I am certain I will be upset, as that is the way I am. Holy cow, the day is here, ELECTION DAY! Talk about anxiety! Reply Reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Reply Michael Heaton Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Michael, First, let me say to you, thank you for your service to our country. I am so thankful, and thankful that you will get to see this traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall. I am certain you will be emotionally moved. I know I was emotionally moved, when I saw the wall, years ago, when I was much younger. Also, I want to thank ALL our veterans for their service to our country. I am so excited about this memorial wall coming to our own city. My husband and I are planning on sitting on the sidewalk, right here on Martin Street, right by our house, in our folding chairs, and watching and welcoming the wall’s arrival and procession tomorrow morning after it leaves the airport on 441. History being made here in Apopka! And also, thank you Apopka Voice, as I didn’t know the wall’s processional was coming right here by our home! I want to thank the Apopka Rotary Club for making this event happen. Being a baby boomer myself, the Vietnam War was my generation’s war. I still hold out hope, that one day, Apopka will create a Veteran’s Park. Our veterans deserve the honor. Michael, if you are ever up around Leesburg, just find Leesburg City Hall building, and look north, about one block, at the park around the lake, and there is a really nice veteran’s park there that you should see, if you haven’t seen it already. The Veteran’s Memorial Park at Fountain Lake. They have multiple memorials to the various wars, and their own engraved wall with veteran’s names, plus bricks engraved in honor of all veterans, both living and deceased, and other engraved bricks to honor anyone that you want to honor. I purchased several engraved bricks there years ago. Check it out, if you are there, in that area. They are adding to the various war memorials all the time, even though some local critics thought that they were going over-board with too many war displays in the park…..the veterans won that battle over the local critics, is my understanding of the issue….lol LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply 5 COMMENTS The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

The house in La Jolla is located on the beach of the same name, on the coast of the Pacific. The site has a natural / artificial dichotomy, as it is opposite a large pond built as a buffer between the condo and the sea. Part of the site has a 1.80 meter terrace that acts as containment for the pond. Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThe programmatic organization provides an intimate first level, grouping seven bedrooms with their bathrooms. The facade of this floor is designed with a habitable thickness comprised of closets and bathrooms, which in turn protect the windows from the outside.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThe second level is public, with a terrace in contact with the upper edge of the pond and other social environments enhancing the view over the landscape.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThis entire floor is “separated” from the first level through an architectural “burnish” that displays the nature of the program, both public and private.

How the Coronavirus Will Impact Regulations

first_img  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Webinars How the Coronavirus Will Impact Regulations Industry leaders discussed the impact COVID-19 could have on federal regulations, foreclosure moratoriums, REO, tech, and more during DS News’ latest webinar, “The Regulatory Ripple Effects.”The webinar, sponsored by Altisource, featured Travis Britsch, VP of Auctions, Hubzu; Trevor Hall, Director of Foreclosure Auction Services, Hubzu; Candace Russell, VP of Post Sale Activities in Default Servicing, Carrington Mortgage Services; and Marrisa Yaker, Managing Attorney, Padgett Law Group.Yaker began the conversation with an overview of policies by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). She added that the FHFA recently announced that foreclosure and eviction moratoriums have been extended until August 31, 2020.Britsch discussed the history of foreclosure sales, saying sales were normally conducted by a sheriff or a “guy in a hoodie,” with the process having little to no technologyPrior to COVID-19, he said most servicers are using on a handful of default servicing platforms and there is no single centralized system of record across the U.S.—not even from county to county—to track foreclosures.He added that since the Great Recession, several professional auction marketing companies have extended from REO into foreclosure sales. He said about half of the state now allow a professional auctioneer to market and conduct the foreclosure sale.Hall added that since the coronavirus, there are signs enforcing the 6-foot physical separation between bidders, auctioneers and bidders are wearing facial masks, there is contact-less checkout, and there are specific time slots to reduce crowds.Some of the technology that may come of the virus included simulcast auctions, electronic funds to eliminate cashiers checks, software for auctioneers, trustees, and bidders, and online only auctions.If you missed the webinar, follow the link to hear a recording of the conversation.
