Pru gets lift from higher sales in Asia

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL KCS-content Share INSURANCE giant Prudential yesterday said its sales grew on the back of growing momentum in its Asian business. The insurer, which was forced to back out of a $35.5bn bid for AIG’s Asian insurance unit AIA earlier this year, said yesterday total group sales rose 24 per cent to £2.4bn in the first nine months of the year. The company reported new business profit of £1.3bn for the first nine months of 2010, up from £1.1bn last year and in line with expectations.Group sales for the third quarter alone were £809m compared to £689m last year an increase of 17 per cent. The Pru’s Asian unit contributed a significant amount to total net business profit, adding 46 per cent of the total with Asian net business profit up 34 per cent to £621m for the year to date compared to £465m a year earlier.Sales for the year so far were up 32 per cent to £1.06bn while sales for the third quarter were £533m, up 25 per cent on the previous year ?– the highest sales figure for the Asian business in the third quarter to date. In the UK, now the smallest slice of the insurer’s business, it said it was focused on a strategy of writing new business with sustainable cash generation and capital preservation. Total sales were up three per cent to £548m for the first nine months compared to £282m a year earlier. Net business profit grew 14 per cent year to date to £192m from £169m a year earlier. Tidjane Thiam, group chief executive, said Prudential remained well positioned to deliver strong growth and generate strong returns for shareholders. “South East Asia, with its high rates of GDP growth, saving habits and low penetration of insurance products, remains the most attractive long-term opportunity in our industry and the primary focus for our growth and investment,” Thiam added.ANALYST VIEWS: what do you make of prudential’s latest results? EAMON FLANAGAN| SHORE CAPITALAnother terrific set of new business figures from Prudential which is undervalued, especially when the rating of the newly-floated AIA in Asia is factored in.JONATHAN JACKSON | KILLIK & COThe latest results show the success of Prudential’s strategy of focusing on value over volume, and capitalising on the most profitable growth opportunities.BARRIE CORNES | PANMUREThis is a straightforward set of figures and helps reinforce the strength of the group, despite the AIA loss, the company is still delivering in spades.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. 14 4.1 5.4 AZN core operating profit (£bn) 2016 5.2 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. 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.center_img 0.0 1.9 Statutory operating profit (£bn) 0.4 2014 3.8 6.9 2.3 33 The AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) share price is a long way from being the hardest hit in this market crash. It ended yesterday at just over 7,000p. This is down 9% from its pre-crash level on 21 February, and 11% below its all-time high of 7,878p printed in January.However, because big FTSE 100 pharma firms have defensive qualities, and healthcare is an industry with long-term structural growth drivers, we shouldn’t expect a company like AZN to suffer as badly as stocks in more cyclical or structurally-challenged sectors. Therefore, we should ask whether AZN’s current discount share price is a bargain for a stock of its quality.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…Debased coinageFund manager Mark Slater — son of the late Jim Slater (author of best-selling investment book The Zulu Principle) — recently savaged companies’ “adjusted earnings per share” numbers as “a debased coinage.”Most companies headline such numbers in their results, and most analysts and investors use them to value the business. Almost invariably, these numbers portray a more flattering picture of the company’s performance than statutory EPS.I’ve previously suggested AstraZeneca’s adjusted EPS — it calls it ‘core’ EPS — is one of the most egregious around. Don’t get me wrong, I think AZN is a quality business with a sound strategy, but, for a good while, I’ve felt the shares have been over-valued on a true view of underlying EPS.However, after the recent fall in the share price, do I think the valuation is now attractive?Smoke and mirrors revisitedI last wrote about AZN after its Q3 results last year. In that article, I showed how the company books one-time gains on disposals of non-core drugs as ‘core’ operating profit. I pointed out that such disposals had increased from £0 in 2014 to £1.9bn in 2018, with the latter representing a whopping 33% of AZN’s ‘core’ operating profit for the year.On a positive note, I suggested it looked like certain disposals for 2019 would be lower, and that what I consider true core earnings would increase for the first time in five years. We now have AZN’s 2019 results, and the table below brings the position up to date. 5.3 Gains on disposals (£bn) Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Gains on disposals as % of AZN core operating profit 1.0 6.9 0 4.9 6.9 4.8 1.2 Adjustments (before gains on disposals) (£bn) 2.9 As you can see, gains on disposals in 2019 were indeed lower, both in absolute terms (£1.2bn), and as a percentage of AZN’s core operating profit (19%). This is a move in the right direction, so how is the company’s price-to-earnings (P/E) valuation looking today?Getting thereAZN’s EPS for 2019 came in at $3.50 (267.2p at current exchange rates) on the company’s own core measure. It worked out at $2.75 (209.9p) on my core measure, and at $1.03 (78.6p) on a statutory basis.At the current share price of 7,003p, this produces P/Es of 26.2 (AZN core), 33.4 (my core) and 89.1 (statutory). I believe my core number is a truer reflection of the underlying business performance than AZN’s core (and the statutory measure).I’d want to see a P/E in the 20s on my measure before considering the stock a potential buy. This would require a lower share price or a further improvement in core EPS. For the moment, I continue to see AZN as a stock to avoid on valuation grounds.

Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear InspirationBy Mike GillandOur children are much more aware of their surroundings than we think.  Even if we don’t notice it ourselves, they are picking up on conversations that we have with our spouse, noting reactions we have to aggressive drivers, and are affected by comments we make about others after a Sunday service.  They are listening to our comments about our government, and all that we speak under our breath about the current pandemic.And, they are learning.What they learn from us in those “unguarded” moments will have a greater impact on them than those things we instruct with words only.Actions speak louder than words, and from our hearts – words, actions and reactions – attitudes are born.  We can’t avoid this axiom!Our kids catch those attitudes. In fact, I learned an important truth years ago that was very helpful in parenting.  Here it is:Attitudes are more “caught” than “taught”.There is no greater gift that we can give our children than that of a godly example.  Now, it won’t be a perfect example, and it won’t be a sinless example.  But with the help of God and His amazing grace, it can be an authentic example.Parents who are wise will realize this, and accept as truth that we can’t teach from a position of “Do what I say, not what I do…”  We have to deal with our hearts first before we can pass along a way of living that we desire our children to follow.Our kids will see straight through our hypocrisy if we are wanting them to do something that we don’t deem important enough to implement and follow in our own lives.  They will see straight through to what really drives us.  They may not understand it, or even be able to articulate just what it is that drives us.  But – if our actions don’t match up to our words, they’ll discount our words.A friend in Orlando once made a statement that was powerful.  I wish I had recorded it, but it went something like, “Those things we declare to be important, yet are held without passion or conviction in our own lives…those will be deemed as optional by our kids.”We have to resist the notion that “what we do is not as important as what we say”, or the ideal that we declare with our mouths only.When we live by convictions, our children have a compelling example laid before them, one that they will usually follow.

Case Filed by District Attorneys Union Against County’s DA Put on Hold Pending Appeal

first_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes A judge who in February ruled mostly in favor of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys for Los Angeles County in a petition brought against District Attorney George Gascon over a series of new directives he handed down after taking office last December put the case on hold Tuesday while the county’s top prosecutor appeals.Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James C. Chalfant issued a preliminary injunction in favor of the union on Feb. 8, finding that Gascon cannot order his prosecutors to ignore laws that the union says protect the public, including three-strike allegations and sentencing enhancements.The case was back before the judge to set a date for a trial on whether the injunction should be made permanent. But after discussing Gascon’s appeal with the lawyers, Chalfant accepted the agreement made by lawyers on both sides that the case should not move forward until the appeal is decided.“The court hereby stays the case in its entirety,” Chalfant’s clerk wrote in a minute order.The union contends that the directives — handed down the day that Gascon was sworn into office Dec. 7 — violate state law.But lawyer Robert E. Dugdale, on behalf of Gascon and the District Attorney’s Office, said the judge did not put a stop to Gascon’s policy prohibiting deputy district attorneys from filing most sentencing enhancements in new cases.Gascon has drawn criticism from some crime victims and prosecutors over the directives and is facing a potential recall effort. Organizers announced last week that signature-gathering has been approved for the recall effort.The city councils of at least 14 of Los Angeles County’s 88 cities have passed votes of no confidence against Gascon, including Beverly Hills, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Diamond Bar, Santa Clarita and Lancaster.
