Times digital sales may be £6m a year

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 2 November 2010 9:24 pm whatsapp THE Times newspaper yesterday announced it has taken 105,000 “digital sales” of its newspaper since it erected a controversial paywall in July.The number includes a series of heavily discounted “early adopter” offers and day passes, as well as iPad and monthly subscription sales.A further 100,000 existing subscribers to the print edition of the Times newspaper have activated their free digital account, taking its total digital readership to over 200,000.The numbers released did not break down how often or for how long users stayed on the site. It also failed to flag up individual users who bought multiple day passes or subscription options.Sources close to the firm said around 50,000 of users pay for either a monthly subscription at £8.66 a month or a subscription to the iPad application at £9.99 a month.This would generate revenue for digital services, including the minimal amount taken in through casual users, at around £6m a year.There are no figures for how many trialists subsequently bought a subscription to the site but the source said the “vast majority” renew subscriptions, adding the firm is “very happy” with its conversion rate of casual users.However, News International, the Times’ parent company, declined to comment on the level of churn the digital edition has experienced.Analysts have suggested the drop in advertising revenue could be as much as £10m. However, sources close to News International argue this may be partially offset by higher rates charged for more detailed data on its users. Rates and bookings are also likely to pick up as advertisers get a clearer picture of subscriber numbers.Before the paywall went up Times Online had a monthly unique readership of around 20m.Numis analyst Lorna Tilbian said she was “very encouraged” by the figures. She said: “This is good news for News International. The sales are being driven by high margin iPad users and I expect the trend to continue. It won’t be long before other papers follow suit – where Murdoch goes others soon follow.”News Corp chief executive James Murdoch said he is “excited by the progress we have made in a short space of time.”The Times is the first mainstream UK newspaper to adopt a paywall for its website. The Financial Times and Wall Street Journal both operate profitable paywalls.The FT last week reported its digital digital subscriptions had increased 50 per cent year-on-year to more than 180,00.

first_img whatsapp KCS-content WORLD’S FIRST SOCIAL MEDIA HEDGE FUND TO TRADE FROM TWEETS WORD has reached The Capitalist of an unconventional new approach to trading: using Twitter to predict swings in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.The method is the brainchild of 28-year-old City trader Paul Hawtin and his brother Simon, whose new hedge fund, set to launch in April as a spin-off of their family-run investment boutique Derwent Capital, will monitor an average of 10 per cent of the 100 millions of tweets sent a day to find “sentiment threads”.Based on how many user messages fall into one of six mood states – including calm, alert and vital – the software will make predictions about where stocks are heading three or four days in the future, giving Derwent’s fund managers some social media-enhanced intelligence on which to base their trades.Paul Hawtin is so confident of the method behind the Twitter madness that he is launching the open-ended Cayman Island fund with an initial £25m, with a view to raising more than £250m from investors within 24 months.Research from Derwent’s academic partners at Indiana University suggests the micro-blogging service will forecast the markets with 87 per cent accuracy – although market surveillance expert Dr John Bates remains highly sceptical.“Predicting stockmarket moves via Twitter is highly unlikely,” he said. “If a financial crisis occurs in real-time, then information in 140 characters will not help organisations make real-time business decisions.”GREEN PARTYIRELAND’S new government Fine Gael used St Patrick’s Day to put the country’s banking crisis behind it, by spreading the word to the world’s financial leaders that Ireland is “open for business” once more.While Ireland’s new Prime Minister Enda Kelly spoke at a lunch for 500 American businessmen in Washington D.C., minister for social protection Joan Burton addressed 400 hedge fund managers, bankers and lawyers at a drinks reception at Middle Temple Hall, hosted by JP Morgan’s Zach Leonard (below right) in aid of the Forgotten Irish Fund.“Ireland is looking forwards, not backwards,” said Basil Geoghegan, co-chair of the fund, who joined Conor Foley, the chief executive of sponsor World Spreads; Tiarnan O’Rourke, vice-president of Evercore Europe; and Peter Kiernan, managing director of Lazard; in dressing with a “dash of emerald” to knock back Guinness and champagne to the strains of an all-female traditional Irish band.By all accounts, the party went with a swing – although The Capitalist hopes Geoghegan didn’t continue the St Patrick’s Day partying too late into the night, or he may have struggled at his breakfast meeting at the Irish Embassy this morning.SAFETY GONG FOR BPTHE Capitalist commends the judges of Oil & Gas UK’s Safety Awards for their sense of humour, after the panel decided that BP should make the shortlist for this year’s award for Innovation in Safety.And we all know how innovative it was at the height of the Gulf oil spill disaster. When the “top hat” dome failed to stop the 5,000 gallons of oil pouring into the Gulf per day, BP famously decided to create a plug of shredded tyres and golf balls to stem the leak. Perhaps, it was this kind of lateral thinking that drew the judges’ attention to the oil giant.Ian Russell, Rob Turner and Jake Molloy from Sodexo, ABB Engineering Services and the National Union of Rail, Maritime & Transport Workers respectively, we salute you.TYCOONS ON TOPTHE City’s millionaire racehorse owners were no strangers to the winners’ enclosure at Cheltenham yesterday, with property tycoon Trevor Hemmings’ Albertas Run winning the Ryanair Chase, despite a protestor running onto the course.Meanwhile, Big Buck’s, the racehorse owned by Cenkos Securities founder Andy Stewart, created racing history by winning the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at Cheltenham for the third consecutive year under jockey Ruby Walsh, in a close finish with Grand Crus.Apparently, the celebrations by Stewart’s party could be heard from the other end of the course – but spare a thought for his City rival Tim Leslie of James Cairn Asset Management, whose horse Any Given Day was beaten into a distant seventh.COMEDY VALUEHERE is a preview of the limited edition dress TV personality Claudia Winkleman will wear to host Comic Relief tonight (above) – which City ladies will be able to fight over when it goes on eBay tomorrow to raise money for the cause.But if a designer outfit by up-and-coming designer Osman Yousefzada isn’t your style, you can help boost the Comic Relief profits by paying a visit to City restaurant Vivat Bacchus and ordering the Red Nose pudding created by chef Jordi Villa.The elegant confection of praline mousse and caramelised nasturtium flowers is on the menu for £8, but customers can pay anything over that amount, with a minimum of £4 per dish donated to Comic Relief.

The easyJet share price soars 50% in 2 weeks. Could it make me rich now?

Image source: Getty Images This time last year it would have seemed unthinkable, but easyJet (LSE: EZJ) has just turned in the first annual loss in its history. From a reported pre-tax profit of £430m in 2019, the budget airline slumped to a loss of £1,273m. And yet the easyJet share price has climbed 50% in the past two weeks.The apparent cognitive dissonance here is all about Covid-19 vaccines. We first had the news of a 90% testing success rate for the Pfizer vaccine. And now we’ve had reported 94.5% success for the Moderna vaccine. So, vaccine here, pandemic over, everyone flying again, and the easyJet share price back on track, right? Well, perhaps not quite, and not yet.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…How bad, really, were easyJet’s results? Well, a headline loss figure of £835m looks a little less painful. It is, after all, within the company’s guidance range of £815m to £845m.Balance sheet in contextThe firm spoke of a “robust balance sheet“, and it does look that way. But that’s in the context of companies being hammered by Covid-19 restrictions. The company has raised total liquidity of £3.1bn during the pandemic. But easyJet is now in a net debt position of £1.1bn, compared to just £326m a year previously. I’m being very careful to keep my mind on that when I look at companies telling us their crisis liquidity is fine.Now, back to the easyJet share price spike. Despite that two-week jump of 50%, the shares are still down around 45% so far in 2020. And before I try to think about whether easyJet might be a good buy now, I’m being very careful to remember one key thing. The share price weakness is not just a result of the 2020 pandemic.Long-term easyJet share price slow progressNo, even before we became aware of the devastating virus, easyJet was lagging some way behind the FTSE 100. In the five years to December 2019, the easyJet share price moved nowhere while the index gained 11%. Actually, easyJet was flat overall, but very volatile along the journey. Volatility can be good for investors looking to buy in the dips, but it’s not ideal for those of a nervous disposition.Dividends provided yields from around 3.5% to 5.3% or so, but FTSE 100 dividends as a whole have been going through a good spell. My point is that easyJet wasn’t a high-flying, super-profitable, investment that was suddenly laid low by the pandemic.Time to buy now?What of the future? I reckon those who think the skies will soon be filled with hordes in little orange planes heading off in search of sun and sand are, well, maybe a little premature. We’ll surely be waiting a good few months, at least, before we see any serious mass vaccination progress. Some even reckon we’ll be wearing masks for as much as another year yet.I’m building a buy list at the moment, but the easyJet share price doesn’t tempt me to include it. If I wouldn’t buy an airline in good times, I’m not going to buy one now. Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Anti-racists drown out immigrant bashers

Jay Inslee declared that Washington state would welcome refugees from Syria. “ACT for America,” a hate group, organized the small rally. Their rhetoric encourages hate crimes at home and imperialist war abroad.The anti-racists overwhelmed the hate speech, chanting, “Say it loud! Say it clear! Refugees are welcome here!” The anti-racist demonstration was made up of community and political activists carrying signs saying, “Welcome Refugees!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

Examining Black Homeownership Trends

first_img About Author: Radhika Ojha  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Black Americans own a much smaller number of homes compared to other demographics across the nation’s 50 largest metros, according to a new study by LendingTree.The study, which focused on homeownership trends among African Americans revealed that while Americans who identified as Black made up around 15% of the population in each of the metropolitan areas, only 10% of owner-occupied homes were owned by them.LendingTree also found that across the metropolitan areas covered in the study, the average median household income for this demographic was $41,571, over $30,000 below the average household income recorded for white Americans in these cities. This was especially important, the study said, “because lenders evaluate a potential borrower’s income, and this can pose challenges when it comes time to qualify for a mortgage.”Looking at the cities with the lowest percentage of Black American homeownership, the study said that Memphis, Tennessee’s Black population was 46.5%. Comparatively, the percentage of black-owner occupied homes was 34.7%. With a median difference of 11.7% between the population and overall owner-occupied homes, Memphis has the lowest percentage of homes owned by black Americans relative to their total population.New Orleans with a difference of -24.8%; Milwaukee (-9.2%); Baltimore (-9.1%); and Virginia Beach, Virginia (-8.5%) rounded off the five cities that had the lowest homeownership rates among Black Americans relative to their total population.On the other hand, while Black Americans account for only 2.3% of San Jose, California’s population, the study found that the percentage of homes owned by them was the largest relative to their overall population across the 50 metros in the study. However, LendingTree pointed out, “The percentage of homes owned by black homeowners is nearly 1.5%, which is still a disproportionately small percentage.”Concluding from the study, LendingTree said that while the homeownership rates among this population remained low there were several ways to increase it, “one of them is by raising awareness about the available homebuying programs on both a national and local level.” Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

My Easter secret about the end of time

first_img Email the author Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Published 2:00 am Saturday, April 4, 2015 Just why God chose me, I was not sure.The Bible clearly says that no one will know the hour or the day of the Second Coming of Christ. Not even the angels in heaven will know.Why then, did I think that God had let me in on His great secret? Skip My Easter secret about the end of time By Jaine Treadwell We were stiff-necked Methodist, as Mama said. Our preachers didn’t have much to say about the Second Coming but Aunt Nita was a Holiness preacher and she had a whole lot to say on the subject. So, I guess she’s the one who put the notion in my head that Jesus was coming back on that particular Easter Sunday.That was a big secret for big-eyed, 10-year-old with an imagination as big as all out doors to keep. But I didn’t think I ought to run around telling folks, especially if the angels didn’t even know about it.I was scared and unhappy, too, about the end of time coming.

The Trumpet of the Lord would sound and Jesus would come down and get us and take us up to heaven.But I wasn’t too interested in mansions and streets of gold. I liked playing in the hayloft in the barn behind Eunice’s house and making frog houses in the damp dirt after a rain.I’d probably have to sit still and quiet in a mansion and couldn’t slide down the banisters like I did at my grandma’s house. Going barefooted on streets made out of gold would hurt my feet. I just wasn’t sure about this heaven that I was going to on Easter Sunday.I had it in my mind that, as soon as the sun came up on Easter morning, Jesus would appear and I’d see him right out my bedroom window. Every Sunday of my life, I got a whipping because I’d pitch a fit when I had to put on my new Sunday dress and my new white patent leather shoes with lacy socks and a hat and gloves. I looked like a clown.But on this Easter eve, I didn’t even pout when Mama hung my starched, ironed Easter dress on the back on my bedroom door. I knew I wouldn’t be wearing that thing. The end of time was coming and I was going in my blue shorts and plaid shirt and my tennis shoes with a hole in the toe.I couldn’t eat supper that night. I was too scared.I put on my pajamas but, when all the house was quiet and dark, I got up and put on my “going away” outfit and crawled back under the covers with my Teddy bear, Tim, wrapped in my arms. I kept my eyes fixed on the window facing east. I had to be awake for the sunrise and the Second Coming.Mama’s singing in the kitchen woke me. I jumped out of bed and ran to the window. The cows were grazing in the pasture. The birds were singing and the sun was climbing in the sky. I could smell bacon frying. It was Easter morning and the end of time had not come.Later, I took my Easter dress off the door and put it on and my new shoes and socks. I stuck the hat on my head and pulled on the white gloves.It was Easter morning and a new day had dawned.Heaven would wait.
