Analysts were expecting $7.27bn, on average.New software sales — which generate long-term maintenance contracts, signaling future profitability — were up 25 per cent to $1.3 bn. The company had forecast three months ago they would rise between two per cent and 12 per cent.Oracle’s shares were up nearly three per cent at $26.10 after closing at $25.36 on the Nasdaq.The company is expected to make a forecast on sales of new software for the current quarter.Chief executive Larry Ellison and new president Mark Hurd — the former Hewlett-Packard (HP) chief executive who joined Oracle earlier this month — are expected to make the announcement.

See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img After a horror run in which they fell from above 20p to around 3.5p in less than nine months, Sirius Minerals (LSE: SXX) shares surged 45% last week on the back of news that the company is in ‘advanced discussions’ with FTSE 100 mining giant Anglo American regarding a possible takeover. The proposed deal, which would see Anglo American pay 5.5p per share for each SXX share, values Sirius at a little over $500m.Would this be a good deal for shareholders? I think it depends on how you look at it.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…5.5p is better than nothing One on hand, you could argue that the proposed 5.5p per share offer is a good deal. I say this because Sirius looked very close to going bust.With no funding in place, and only £180m in cash left as of September (about six months’ worth), the outlook for the company was not good at all. If it had gone bust, shareholders would most likely have lost everything (what was left of their original investments anyway). Receiving 5.5p per share is certainly better than receiving nothing.It’s also worth noting that, if you bought Sirius shares recently when they were trading near 3p, as my colleague Manika Premsingh did, then the proposed 5.5p per share deal is a great deal. You could make a huge gain in a short period of time if the deal goes through.A rough deal for long-term holdersOn the other hand, when you consider that many long-term shareholders will have paid over 20p (maybe even more than 40p) for their Sirius shares, the 5.5p per share proposed deal is not so good. In fact, it’s likely to be pretty painful for investors. If you paid 20p per share for your SXX shares, you could be forced to lock in a loss of more than 70%.I’ve been in this kind of situation before myself and it’s very frustrating. A little over 10 years ago, I owned shares in an oil exploration company whose share price crashed during the Global Financial Crisis. A larger company came in with an opportunistic bid, the oil explorer accepted the bid, and I was forced to lock in a loss of about 40%. So, I feel shareholders’ pain. What I’d do nowWondering what to do with your Sirius Minerals shares after news of the proposed offer?If you’re a long-term shareholder, I’d hold on to your SXX shares for now. While Sirius has advised that “there can be no certainty that any firm offer will be made,” it does sound like the company is keen to push the proposed deal through. “The Board of Sirius has indicated to Anglo American that it expects to be able to recommend a firm offer for Sirius if made by Anglo American at the price set out in the Proposal,” it said last week. Anglo American, too, sounds quite interested in a deal. It has until February 5 to make a firm offer.It’s certainly not an ideal situation if you’re a long-term holder, but as I said, receiving 5.5p if the deal goes through is better than receiving nothing if the company goes bust. There’s always a small chance that another bidder could come in with a higher offer too. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

3 stocks I’d buy as business activity in the UK is disrupted due to the coronavirus

first_img It’s fair to say that the coronavirus is likely to have a disruptive impact on many companies in the months ahead. For some businesses, the outbreak is an absolute disaster – just look at the share prices of budget airline easyJet and cinema operator Cineworld recently.Yet not all businesses are likely to fare poorly. Here’s a look at three companies that could potentially see demand for their services increase as a result of the disruption.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…Gamma CommunicationsGamma Communications (LSE: GAMA) is an under-the-radar business communications company that is listed on the AIM market. It specialises in unified communications solutions that help companies enhance agility and raise productivity (such as messaging, video calling and instant conference services). It also offers mobile solutions that provide employees with the freedom to work from anywhere. Many companies across the UK are now exploring ways for employees to work remotely due to the coronavirus outbreak. So I think Gamma’s communications solutions could be in high demand in the coming months.Gamma is a company I’ve had on my watchlist for quite a while now. This is due to its impressive growth (five-year revenue growth of around 90%). The stock has often been a little too expensive for my liking though. However, the share price has fallen from 1,460p in January to 1,075p today as a result of the stock market crash. I think a great buying opportunity has emerged as the forward-looking P/E ratio is now more reasonable at 24.SoftcatAnother business that I believe could potentially benefit from coronavirus disruption is Softcat (LSE: SCT). It provides IT solutions to organisations and has expertise in the areas of unified communications, mobility services, and collaboration. As companies recognise the need for added investment in technology to enable their staff to work remotely, Softcat could benefit.Like Gamma, Softcat has often traded at a high valuation in recent years. This is due to the fact that the group has been growing at a rapid rate (five-year revenue growth of nearly 100%). The company is also highly profitable and has a strong balance sheet. Yet recently, the shares have been dragged down by the wider market sell-off and have fallen from 1,260p to around 960p. At that price, the forward-looking P/E ratio is around 26, which I think is very reasonable for this high-quality growth stock. At that valuation, SCT is in my ‘buy-zone’.Alpha FXFinally, I think Alpha FX (LSE: AFX) looks quite interesting at the moment. It’s a fast-growing financial services company that specialises in providing foreign exchange (FX) hedging services to small-and medium-sized businesses. Major currencies have been fluctuating wildly recently as a result of the carnage in the financial markets (i.e. GBP/USD has fallen from 1.31 to 1.25 this week). As a result, I believe that demand for Alpha’s currency management solutions in the near term is likely to be high.Like Gamma and Softcat, Alpha is a high-growth company (five-year revenue growth of more than 1,000%) that often trades at a premium valuation. Yet it too has experienced a significant pullback recently. Currently, the shares can be picked up for 1,015p, down from 1,350p in January. At that price, which equates to a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 33, I see it as a ‘buy’. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Stuart Hazell pleads guilty to Tia Sharp murder

He was the partner of Tia’s grandmother.She had been missing for over a week when her body was found back in August of last year.The 37-year-old, who also denied sexually assaulting the youngster, claimed she had died accidentally falling down the stairs. There were gasps from the public gallery and Tia’s father broke down in tears as Hazell changed his plea to guilty.Lord Carlile, defending, said Hazell wanted to make it known that “Tia’s family have suffered enough and he did not want to put them through any further stages of this trial or this process”.Reporter Martin Brunt at the Old Bailey said “The charge was read again to Hazell – a charge he had denied at the start of last week. There was some hesitation when he was asked to plead but eventually, after two or three seconds, he said the word, ‘guilty'”.”That prompted cries and gasps from the public gallery where Tia’s mother and grandmother were sitting. There was surprise also from Tia’s father.””They clearly weren’t expecting this very dramatic turn of events” he added.Judge Mr Justice Nicol is expected to sentence Hazell later today. The trial, which was entering its 5th day, had been due to last 2 weeks.Tia’s body, which the prosecution said was “carefully wrapped” in a sheet and bin bags, was found a week after she went missing in August last year.Jurors were told Hazell’s semen was found on her bed and on her night clothes, while her blood was found on the belt Hazell was wearing when he was arrested.Her disappearance sparked searches by police and members of the public but her body was missed during initial searches of the loft. Hazell joined the search and, in a television interview played to the jury, claimed he was “playing the role of bereaved grandparent”.The change of plea comes after 4 days of graphic evidence during which Tia’s mother, Natalie Sharp, frequently had to leave the courtroom, visibly distressed.The prosecution case included a photograph of a girl alleged to be Tia after she died.Reporter Martin Brunt is at the Old Bailey and describes what happened in court.”The charge – the indictment – was read out again, as it was at the start of this trial” he said.”Hazell was asked what he pleaded. A week ago he pleaded not guilty. This time there was a pause, he seemed to hesitate – and then he said the word ‘guilty'” he added.

On November 26, 2008, Devika Rotawan along with her father Natwarlal and brother Jayesh reached CST station at around 9 pm to catch a train to Pune. As they were waiting for the train, they heard a huge explosion and firing started. As the petitioner was leaving with her family, she got shot on her right leg. The bullet was fired by Ajmal Kasab from an AK-47 rifle. Thereafter, the petitioner fell unconscious and was taken to St.George’s Hospital. The petitioner was operated upon 6 times and her injuries were treated for about a month and a half after that. She was unable to walk even after six months of the incident. Now, in her twenties, the petitioner was 9-years-old at the time of the terrorist attack. According to the petitioner, her father does not have a permanent source of income and they are very poor and live in a chawl. After the 26/11 attack, the State government promised her accommodation under the EWS scheme and monetary compensation for her education. The petitioner admits that some compensation was awarded to her but it was spent on medical expenses and post-operative care. During the trial, both the petitioner and her father testified in Court. She identified Ajmal Kasab as the shooter at CST station on 26/11. The testimony of the petitioner and her father was considered to be of great importance by the trial judge and was relied upon heavily by him, the petition claims. The petition states- “It is humbly submitted that the petitioner and her father have written a number of communications to the offices of the Hon’ble Prime Minister and the Chief Minister seeking their help, however no response to the same was ever made by the authorities. Recently, on 19.07.2020, the petitioner made a representation before the Chief Secretary of the Government of Maharashtra requesting for the allotment of residential accommodation under EWS scheme on compassionate grounds, however no response was received by the petitioner.” Petition also contends that there ought to be a law in place to provide rehabilitation to the victims not just compensation- “Immediately after the attacks by the terrorists, the government expresses concern and solidarity with the families of the deceased and victims, however attention towards them melts away soon after the memory of the incident fades. It is humbly submitted that the reason for such an indifferent attitude towards victims in addition to payment of compensation.” Finally, the petitioner urges that her father is more than 60 years old, her brother is suffering from a spinal cord problem for which he has been operated upon thrice and the petitioner herself was diagnosed with tuberculosis recently. Having no source of income, the petitioner and her family are not even in a position to meet expenses for basic necessities. Moreover, the petitioner passed 12th standard recently but due to financial constraints, she was forced to discontinue her education.
