The Cambodian Government has announced that it is to stop issuing new online gambling licences in the country with immediate effect.Cambodian Prime Minister, Hun Sen, signed a directive yesterday (August 18), as part of an effort to clamp down on illegal gambling activities in the Asian nation.It said that while many operators had secured licences – local media has estimated that more than 150 have been awarded – there were a significant number of illegal operators active in the country, targeting Cambodian and foreign players.In particular the province of Shihanouk was said to be a preferred base for illegal operators, and were using igaming to cheat and extort money from players, affecting the country’s social order, the directive said.Published by Cambodia Express News, the directive states that the government will no longer issue or renew licences, or update gambling regulations. Licensees will be allowed to continue to operate until their certification expires, after which they must shut down operations in the country.The directive also instructs law enforcement officials to intensify their search for unlicensed operators and crack down on illegal activity where it was found. Cambodia to cease online gambling licensing The Cambodian Government has announced that it is to stop issuing new online gambling licences in the country with immediate effect, while all existing igaming permits will be allowed to expire. 19th August 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling Topics: Legal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Asia Cambodia Email Address
Sound the alarm! Two UK shares I think you need to avoid at ALL costs Image source: Getty Images. See all posts by Royston Wild We don’t use cash like we used to. I don’t, I’m sure that you don’t either. There’s a whopping space in my wallet where my cash used to be kept. If I don’t use the handful of cards that I keep inside it, then I use Apple Pay on my iPhone. Everything else is too much hassle, right?Well, latest data from UK Finance seems to suggest so. It said earlier this week that just one in 10 retail transactions in Britain is made using cash nowadays. And it predicts that the country will be “virtually cashless” by the middle of the 2030s.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…Don’t bank on a comebackThis is a trend that mirrors changing consumer habits around the whole world. It’s a phenomenon that has unsurprisingly buried De La Rue (LSE: DLAR). The money printer’s share price has fallen around 85% over the past three years as cash usage has moved into terminal decline.Latest results from De La Rue don’t suggest that it’ll rise like the proverbial phoenix from the flames either. Revenues from its Currency unit tanked by almost a third year-on-year between April and September as volumes and prices of its banknotes slipped.So City analysts expect the FTSE 250 firm’s earnings to plummet again in the current fiscal year (to March 2020). A 76% bottom-line drop is currently being predicted. If proven correct it won’t be the first time annual profits have tanked in recent years. But it could be one of the last, the business saying that there is “significant doubt” over its ability to continue trading due to its high debt levels just three months ago.So forget about De La Rue’s low forward price-to-earnings (or P/E) ratio of 9.8 times. Not even these levels of cheapness are enough to tempt me to invest today.Hunting’s headachesFor bargain hunters, buying shares in Hunting (LSE: HTG) might seem a more sensible option. This is a company that also trades on a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of around 10 times. And unlike De La Rue it also offers a dividend for the current year, one which creates a chubby 2.8% yield.In my book, though, this is another share that’s loaded with an alarming amount of risk. Freshest trading details in December underlined the huge troubles at the energy services provider as North American shale activity decelerated. It said that the pace of decline is actually accelerating and particularly so in the US onshore segment.It’s possible that the rig count will keep on falling too, what with key macroeconomic issues (like trade wars, Europe’s lurch towards recession, and Brexit) lingering on in the background. Moreover, the recent coronavirus outbreak threatens to keep oil prices under pressure as well.A 3% annual earnings drop in 2020 is currently forecast for Hunting by City analysts. I wouldn’t be surprised if its bottom-line troubles extend beyond the current year though, given the alarming shrinkage in the company’s highly-competitive marketplace. This is another share I would say is to be avoided all costs. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Granted, the FTSE 100 has more of a global feel to it than the leading indices of many other countries, but there’s no denying that this global feel is concentrated in just a few industries and sectors. Very largely, they’re all resources stocks, financials, or pharmaceuticals. Malcolm Wheatley | Saturday, 16th January, 2021 Image source: Getty Images 3 New Year resolutions well worth keeping Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Plunging markets during 2020 will have made that particular choice a painful one: better by far to take your income from dividends, in my view, rather then being forced to sell stocks at depressed prices.So what to do? If you’re intending to be an income investor in your later years, start transitioning into it in plenty of time.Invest in yourselfFinally, the business of building up a decent nest-egg is a serious one: sustained wealth accumulation is rarely an accidental process. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. So here are three suggestions for New Year resolutions that are worth sticking to.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…Go globalI’ve written before, several months ago, about the importance of a globally diversified portfolio. And that’s because ordinary retail investors – that’s you and I, in short – are often notoriously prone to ‘home country bias’. Enter Your Email Address Famously, New Year resolutions are difficult to keep. We start off with good intentions, intending to diet and join a gym, but by February it’s back to pork pies on the sofa as we binge on reality TV. And it’s this: I’ve seen a good number growth-focused investors approach retirement with very little actual experience of income investing. And to be blunt, age 65 – or thereabouts – isn’t the best time to start acquiring that experience. Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! The Motley Fool UK owns shares in Alphabet (Google’s parent company). Malcolm holds no position in any of the shares mentioned. I’m exaggerating, I know. But you get the point: despite our best intentions, it can be difficult to stick to New Year resolutions. But when it comes to New Year resolutions to do with investing, it really is worth going the extra mile, and making some extra effort.And that’s because investing is all about building wealth – your wealth. Wealth intended to provide for you in your retirement, and to deliver on your long-term lifestyle aspirations. Backslide on going to the gym, or reading 25 of the Great Classics, and the consequences won’t be as serious. But a poorly performing investment portfolio can have lasting – and serious – repercussions. So my final resolution is this: invest time in your portfolio. Yet all too often, it’s left largely to chance. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Take the time to read, to think, and to browse the wealth of online resources out there. Know what you want to achieve – and more importantly, have a plan for getting there. If you’re in your twenties, thirties or early forties, I have absolutely no quarrel with you if you’re a growth investor. But past your mid-forties, I have a warning bell to sound if you’re thinking of using your investments to fund your retirement, or to buffer a gradual transition into retirement. Worse, I’ve seen investors doggedly determined to never be an income investor, but simply sell a few stocks every so often to generate cash. So maybe you can achieve that exercise-related New Year resolution after all… 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 And of those various activities, I’d suggest, it’s the thinking and strategising that are probably the most important – and most overlooked – activities.The good news? These can be done anywhere. On the sofa, certainly – accompanied by a pork pie or not, as you choose. But also at the gym, on the golf course, or during a long walk. 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.

A few investment funds here, a few shares bought as Sunday newspaper tips there. A little buying, a little selling – and precious little by way of a strategy, or reasonable asset allocation. Worse, there are entire industries and sectors that are wholly missing. Here in the UK, we have no listed companies that are the equivalent of Boeing, Airbus, Alphabet (Google’s parent company), Microsoft, Tesla, Volkswagen, BMW, Honda or Toyota, for instance.How to remedy this? Buy individual foreign stocks directly, or (an often-better option in my view) take a look at some of the large UK-listed global investment trusts that are out there.Needing income? Don’t leave it too lateVery broadly, investors fall into two categories: growth-focused investors, and income-focused investors.

The direction was passed in a writ petition filed by a pilot from Air India who alleged that the national carrier violated guidelines issued by the Government of India in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, specifically the condition which provides that seat allocation at the time of check-in is to be done in a manner to ensure that the seat between two passengers is kept empty. A Division bench of Justices RD Dhanuka and Abhay Ahuja heard the petition filed by Commander Deven Y Kanani who relied upon circular issued by the Government of India dated March 23, 2020 and alleged that Air India violated the said circular by failing to follow the rule of keeping the middle seat empty during evacuation of stranded passengers from USA as part of the Vande Bharat Mission. Submissions Appearing on behalf of Air India, Dr.Abhinav Chandrachud submitted that the circular dated March 23, 2020 issued by the Government of India does not apply to non-scheduled commercial flights but would only apply to scheduled domestic flights. He said that all precautions required to be taken so as to prevent the spread of Covid-19 are taken while lifting the passengers from abroad and to bring these stranded passengers in India. Moreover, Chandrachud argued that even in the subsequent guidelines issued by the Government of India, there is no such condition prescribed for keeping one seat vacant between two passengers. He submits that even if one seat is kept vacant between two seats, even then criteria of social distancing prescribed by the Government of India would not be satisfied. Petitioner’s lawyer Abhilash Panickar submitted that if the argument of Air India Limited are accepted, there would be no preventive measures required to be taken to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Panickar submitted photographs of the passengers in Executive Class and Y class in one of the Air India flights operated between San Francisco, USA and Mumbai. The whole purpose of the circular dated March 23 which is issued by the Government of India to prevent spread of Covid-19 and take preventive measures is grossly violated, he argued. Thus, Court noted that prima facie government’s circular was violated by Air India- “Prima facie it appears that the object behind the Circular dated 23rd March 2020 issued by the Government of India is for the safety of the passengers and for protection of their health in this emergency situation created by the Covid-19 Pandemic. In these circumstances, the Circular can not be interpreted to apply differently to the passengers who are travelling from abroad and the domestic passengers. Paramount consideration is the health and safety of these passengers and to achieve the objective that they are not infected by Corona virus when they undertake any such travel. Prima facie, we are in agreement with the submission made by the learned Counsel for the Petitioner that those passengers who are being lifted mainly from U.S.A and U.K. may be Covid-19 infected passengers. In our prima facie view, Air India has violated Circular dated 23rd March, 2020 by not keeping one seat between two seats empty while allocation of the seat at the time of check-in.” Complete Turnaround However, at 5:30 pm, Dr. Chandrachud informed the bench that a fresh circular has been issued by the DGCA dated May 22 which supersedes the previous circular dated March 23. The new circular is applicable only on domestic flights and not international flights. Furthermore, Dr.Chandrachud told the Court that his clients have decided to re-commence the operation of domestic flights from May 25 and comprehensive guidelines have been issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation via order dated May 21, 2020. Court said- “In view of the above, we direct Respondent nos.2 and 3 to include this new Development in the affidavit directed to be filed. We further direct Respondent no.1 to file an affidavit, in reply before the next date.” Moreover, the bench granted liberty to the petitioner’s advocate to amend the present writ petition and to impugn the new circular dated May 22 along with the guidelines referred to in the said circular. Finally, the Court noted- “We have already indicated our prima facie observations about the applicability of Circular dated 23.3.2020. It is not the case of Respondent nos.2 and 3 that the new Circular dated 22.5.2020 applies to international operations or to non-scheduled flights. We therefore, make it clear that the earlier directions issued by this Court in para 11, would remain with a rider that the Circular dated 23.3.2020, shall be read with Circular dated 22.5.2020 to the extent that the Circular dated 23.3.2020 stands superseded in so far as domestic flights are concerned.” This matter will now be heard on June 2.Click here to download the HC OrderClick here to download DGCA Circular of May 22Next Story
