Edward Sheldon, CFA | Wednesday, 25th November, 2020 | More on: AV BT-A TW One of the secrets to Warren Buffett’s success is that he’s very selective about his investments. He only invests in businesses that have competitive advantages, strong balance sheets, and excellent track records when it comes to generating shareholder wealth.Here, I’m going to look at three FTSE 100 companies that I believe Warren Buffett wouldn’t invest in today. He wouldn’t buy these Footsie stocks and neither would I.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…Warren Buffett doesn’t like debtBT (LSE: BT.A) is a popular stock within the UK investment community. However, I don’t think Warren Buffett would be interested in buying it.One reason I think Buffett would steer clear is the company’s high debt levels. In the half-year report, BT detailed net debt of £17.6bn. Meanwhile, equity on the balance sheet was just £12bn. Buffett wouldn’t be impressed with that debt-to-equity ratio.Another reason I think he would swerve BT is that it doesn’t generate a high level of profitability. Over the last three years, for example, return on capital employed (ROCE) has averaged 8.7%. By contrast, his top holding, Apple, has averaged a ROCE of 28.7% during that period.Given BT’s debt and lack of profitability, I think Buffett would be more than happy to put this FTSE 100 stock in his ‘no’ pile.No economic moatAnother FTSE 100 company that I believe he wouldn’t invest in today is Aviva (LSE: AV). Buffett does like the insurance sector. Currently, he owns a number of major insurers. However, I think Aviva is an insurance stock he’d leave alone.The reason I say this is that it doesn’t really have a competitive advantage (or economic moat as Buffett likes to call it). It doesn’t have an edge over the competition that can help it protect profits.Now, Aviva’s new CEO, Amanda Blanc, is looking to shake things up. She’s confident that she can turn the FTSE 100 insurer into a “winner.” However, we’ve seen this kind of thing before with Aviva and the company has failed to deliver. Just look at its chart. It says a lot about the company’s poor long-term track record.Overall, I don’t think the legendary investor would be interested in Aviva shares.Poor long-term investmentFinally, housebuilder Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) is a third FTSE 100 stock that I believe Warren Buffett wouldn’t invest in.At first glance, Taylor Wimpey does have a lot of Buffett-like attributes. For example, it has a strong balance sheet with minimal long-term debt. He would like that. Profitability has also been high recently. Over the last three years, ROCE has averaged 20%.However, I believe the highly cyclical nature of the housebuilding industry would be a turn-off for Buffett here. During periods of economic weakness, housebuilders tend to get hit hard. This means that they’re generally not great long-term investments. Just look at a long-term chart for the share. Currently, Taylor Wimpey’s share price is nearly 50% below its 2007 peak.Warren Buffett tends to go for stocks that are almost guaranteed to be bigger in 10 or 20 years’ time. For this reason, I think he’d pass on this FTSE 100 stock.

He again crashed into another car, tried unsuccessfully to carjack the driver, returned to the SUV and resumed fleeing.Officials said a CHP officer ultimately rammed and disabled the suspect’s SUV along Riverside Drive, near the 134 Freeway, in Burbank.Siganoff struggled with officers as they wrestled him into custody, Santiago said.Siganoff is due back in court for a hearing on June 25. Until then, bail has been set at $300,000.

Alex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — First lady Melania Trump visited the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, continuing a tradition followed by every first lady since Bess Truman more than 60 years ago, according to the White House.It came on the heels of a Fox News interview in which, asked about criticism, she said, “I follow what’s going on. And I give my husband advice and my honest opinion. And sometimes he listens and sometimes he doesn’t.”During her visit to the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit, to meet with families and their children who have graduated from the program, a 7-year-old girl told Trump that she wanted a dog for Christmas. The first lady then asked if she had a name in mind, to which the child replied, “Peppermint.”Trump then read Oliver the Ornament to children who are current patients. The story is about an ornament who is pushed around by others, playing to the first lady’s “Be Best” campaign and its prevailing anti-bullying message.The holiday visit followed her interview with Fox News that aired Wednesday night, in which she shared her views on her first two years in the White House while visiting troops on the USS George H.W. Bush. During the visit to the troops, the first lady posted a photo to Twitter wearing a USS George H.W. Bush baseball cap while aboard a flight on a V-22 Osprey, a military aircraft — making history as the first presidential spouse to take the flight.Trump said the hardest part in her role was coping with people who she said frequently “use” her and her husband.“I would say the opportunists who are using my name, or my family name, to advance themselves — from comedians to journalists to book writers,” are the most difficult parts of the job, Trump said.The first lady then said she is prepared for regular criticism, but added she does what she believes to be correct.“I know I will get the criticism — from the public or from the media — but I will do what is right and what I feel is right for the country and for the people,” she said.

Managers help with change of directionOn 28 May 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Barclaycard held a conference for 250 of its senior managers to help thecompany form its new corporate direction and identify the best way tocommunicate this to all staff. Phil Rowe, Barclaycard’s head of internal communications, said the decisionwas taken to involve staff in the creation of a new ‘vision’ following a numberof changes, including the takeover of the Providian bank and its 500 staffearlier this month. Barclaycard has also just launched in Italy and recently started BarclaycardDirect, a remote business selling investments, insurance and mortgages. The programme, organised by Eventworks, began with the executive level teamworking with board members of Barclaycard’s different businesses, including HR,to identify a vision statement, which was “We will become the most admiredcard business in the world.” The conference was held to allow the next layer of leaders and seniormanagers from across the business to have an input into the process. “Over two days we asked, if this is our long term vision what do youthink we need to do in order to achieve it?,” said Rowe. The delegates agreed that Barclaycard’s core stakeholder groups werecustomers, colleagues, company and community and then through discussionidentified how these were to be involved to help drive the overall vision. Finally, the managers suggested ways of ensuring all their employees areinvolved, including a roadshow, permanent areas promoting the corporate vision,and via the intranet. Rowe said traditional internal communication methods would also be used,such as team briefings and quarterly leadership team meetings. “We mustinvolve people as much as possible, we want to limit the amount of central pushto put this process in the hands of our people so they can bring it tolife,” he explained. www.eventworks.co.uk
