Shares to buy: 3 reasons why I’d still love to buy these FTSE 100 stocks

first_img Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Manika Premsingh owns shares of AstraZeneca and Ocado Group. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Hikma Pharmaceuticals. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares There’s nothing that brings out the bull in investors like a continued stock market rally. The over-1,000 point gain in the FTSE 100 index over the past two months is enough to bring even the most cautious investors among us out into the action. There’s a lot going for the FTSE 100 index, which I’ve talked about in another article today. But there’s something to be said for caution, too. There are still potential roadblocks ahead.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…Here are two of them:#1. Continued corona-crisisThe vaccine rollouts are a huge positive, but what about the new virus variant in town? We still don’t know if it’s going to respond appropriately to the Covid-19 vaccines. And if it doesn’t, we have another problem at hand. Moreover, there are at least some people who are wary of the vaccine. If the number increases to a level that keeps virus levels high, that could be an additional challenge. #2. Brexit delaysDespite the Brexit deal being struck, there are still thorny issues to contend with. A news piece I read today, for instance, pointed to struggles faced by parcel courier providers because of more complex processes. Financial services is another area that needs resolution. And this is important, because of the large financial services industry in the country. While I hope that neither of these situations blows out of control, I think they do serve as a good reminder that we should still maintain some caution in our investments. To that end, I would still consider buying ‘safe’ stocks or those that can withstand stock market crashes better than others.Here are three that I’d consider:#1. AstraZeneca — FTSE 100’s Covid-19 starThis FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals biggie hasn’t just been a literal life-saver this year, it was also one of the best performing stocks in the months following the stock market crash. Like all others, it saw a dramatic fall in March, but by July it made big gains and was trading at all-time highs. It has seen a sharp reversal in fortunes since the stock market rally started in November, however, as investors flocked to beaten down stocks. It’s trading at levels 20% below its 2020 highs now. I think it’s a solid stock in any case, but even more so when I keep the risks of another market meltdown in mind. #2. Hikma Pharmaceuticals — improving performanceThis is another FTSE 100 healthcare stock I like, and not just because it’s a defensive one.It put out a positive guidance in November last year, and its share price is currently near all-time highs. Though with a price-to-earnings ratio of 12.5 times, I reckon that it can increase more. #3. Ocado — fortune-favoured share to buyMuch like AZN, OCDO too has seen subdued share prices since the stock market rally began.But also like AZN, it has a lot going for it in terms of long-term prospects. With the continued lockdown, I think this FTSE 100 stock will continue to perform in the short term as online deliveries remain in demand, not something we can say for all businesses.

People’s Power puts socialist on Baltimore ballot #Socialists4Baltimore

first_imgFrom an Aug. 24 press advisory from the Baltimore Campaign for People’s Power.Baltimore voters will have the chance to choose two independent socialist candidates in November. Sharon Black has won official ballot status for the position of City Council president, and Andre Powell is running for mayor.Black and Powell are mounting a platform that includes fighting for a $15 minimum wage; a comprehensive jobs program, not jails; and an end to police terror. Both candidates are members of Workers World Party and have been deeply committed to organizing support for the Black Lives Matter movement for the past two years.Under the hashtag #Socialists4Baltimore, they are demanding that Baltimore put people’s ­interests before those of the banks and big business.In comments on the campaign, Andre Powell, who will be filing for write-in status, stated, “We fought an uphill battle this summer, collecting over 8,000 signatures in some of the worst heat and weather conditions, in order to qualify.”He elaborated: “We took our campaign to almost every neighborhood in Baltimore from Cherry Hill and Westport to West and East Baltimore. Despite the almost impossible threshold for independents to obtain ballot status, we did it! Thousands of people enthusiastically signed up, illustrating that the people of Baltimore want real change.”Sharon Black emphasized, “We are entering the next phase of our fight — to engage with the powers-that-be, the current establishment, to turn around the present paradigm of the rich first and poor and working class people last.”Black continued, “Council President Jack Young needs to answer to the people who want and desperately need a livable wage, and to those who are sick of public financing tax tricks that serve to deepen racism and segregation in Baltimore.”Powell and Black noted the significance of their socialist campaign: “Our campaigns have virtually no funds. We have no big business donors or special interests backing us. But that will not stop us from launching an amazing, viable, volunteer-based, on-the-ground campaign. We expect to win. In fact, we have already won! Because our campaign is not about personalities or individuals or even solely centered around the ballot box, but about the life-and-death issues facing the people of Baltimore.Mobilizing and organizing the people to exert their power is our ultimate goal, not just in November but year-round.”Both candidates have announced their support and endorsement of Seventh District candidate Nnamdi Scott, another independent candidate, who represents the Ujima People’s Progress Party.Read Black and Powell’s “Ten-Point Plan for Baltimore” here:.workers.org/wwp/baltimore-campaign-for-peoples-power/FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Turkey: Show trials of journalists are a travesty of justice

first_img RSF_en News April 2, 2021 Find out more Organisation This week, ARTICLE 19 and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) are monitoring two trials of journalists in Turkey. News September 19, 2017 Turkey: Show trials of journalists are a travesty of justice News Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expressionCouncil of Europe Follow the news on Turkey to go further Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts April 28, 2021 Find out more On Monday 18 September they attended the first hearing in the trial of 30 journalists, columnists and staff working for Zaman newspaper, including Şahin Alpay, Ali Bulaç, Ahmet Alkan Turan and Mümtazer Türköne. Today, on Tuesday 19 September, they are attending the second hearing in the case of 17 journalists and columnists including Ahmet and Mehmet Altan. ARTICLE 19 and RSF call for the journalists to be released from pre-trial detention and for the charges to be dropped. In both trials, the defendants are accused of involvement in last year’s failed coup. They face charges of “attempting to overthrow the constitutional order through violence or force”, “attempting to overthrow or interfere with the work of the national assembly through violence or force” and “attempting to overthrow or interfere with the work of the government”. In the Zaman case, the defendants are also charged with membership of a terrorist organisation, which refers to the Gülen movement, the organisation the Turkish government blames for the coup attempt. In the Altans’ case, the defendants are charged with aiding a terrorist organisation without being a member, which carries the same sentence as membership. In both cases, the defendants face three aggravated life sentences. Most of them have already been in pre-trial detention for between 12 and 14 months. In neither case does the indictment include specific allegations of direct involvement in the coup itself or of incitement to violence. In the Zaman indictment, the prosecutor claims that the defendants sought to create a public perception favourable to the coup. The indictment does not establish clear and individualised evidence against the defendants. On the contrary, it states that the articles do not contain individual crime elements, but reflect the editorial policy of Zaman newspaper, which was allegedly determined by Fethullah Gülen, the religious leader of the Gülen movement. It is argued that this demonstrates they were part of a terrorist network. No attempt has been made in the indictment to explain how newspaper articles or columns constitute violence or force. In the Altans’ case, the indictment outlines a number of columns or articles written by the defendants which express views critical of the government, in addition to a television interview in which the prosecutor claims they gave subliminal messages in support of the coup. Apart from this, some circumstantial evidence about contact they had with alleged members of the Gülen movement is included. ARTICLE 19 and RSF, along with a number of other international human rights or press freedom organisations, monitored the first hearing of the Altans’ trial in June 2017. ARTICLE 19 submitted an expert opinion to the court, which outlined how the charges against the defendants do not comply with international standards on the right to freedom of expression. The opinion further concluded that these cases appear to be politically motivated. In addition to the groundless charges, ARTICLE 19 and RSF are concerned about undue pressure on human rights lawyers. Veysel Ok, the lead defence lawyer for Ahmet Altan and Şahin Alpay, is also on trial this week in a separate case where he is charged with “insulting Turkishness” and “insulting the judiciary” based on an interview he gave in 2015 where he criticised the Turkish justice system, stating that the judges lacked independence. Another human rights lawyer, Orhan Kemal Cengiz, is a defendant in the Zaman newspaper case. His name only appears once in the indictment and no evidence is cited against him. He was the lawyer representing the Zaman case at the Constitutional Court and also wrote columns for Today’s Zaman. Both cases represent show trials aimed at silencing dissent and alternative viewpoints, particularly criticism of the government. In both cases, ARTICLE 19 and RSF call for the journalists to be released and for the charges to be dropped in the absence of individualised evidence of involvement in an internationally recognised crime.

DAA’s monopoly bad for the country

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Email NewsDAA’s monopoly bad for the countryBy Staff Reporter – May 23, 2017 1498 Advertisement LIMERICK Chamber has said that the DAA’s monopoly is bad for the country in its National Planning Framework submission.Allowing unregulated market domination by Dublin Airport is not in the national interest and will add further to its monopolistic position, one of the country’s largest business representative groups has stated.Limerick Chamber, the largest chamber in the Mid West and third largest in the country, has said that aviation must be one of the key focus areas for the government if it is to redress the current economic imbalance that is causing the divide between the Dublin region and the rest of the country to widen at an alarming rate and, at the same time, causing congestion and uncompetitiveness in the capital.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In its submission to the National Planning Framework, ‘Ireland 2040 – Our Plan’, which has been described by Chamber CEO James Ring as a pivotal framework for the future of the nation, the Chamber said that in the long-term, regional cities on the western half of the island will play a key role in rebalancing the national economy but policy must be put in place to direct that correction.Two key areas highlighted in the Chamber submission for promotion under the NPF were Shannon Airport and the Shannon Estuary. It is the single most important piece of planning in the interest of the wider nation that any government will take on in our lifetime. Minister Coveney must be congratulated on initiating this but we have to get it right.“We have an economy about to tip over on one side almost and the NPF is the opportunity to redress that. At the 100th anniversary commemorations of the birth of our greatest innovator and visionary from this region, Brendan O’Regan, this week we saw a video clip of him from 2004 in which he talked then about the struggle between the capital and the rest of the country. He talked about how Ireland’s greatness in the future depends on a successful outcome to that struggle as otherwise we damage the whole country by a congested capital that makes the capital itself an unpleasant place to live also. It’s amazing that 13 years on, not alone have we not corrected that but it’s getting worse. So now, with the NPF, we have the chance to get it right.“To do that we must create policy that will create an environment for the regions to fulfil their potential, create greater opportunity in the regions, relieve the burden from Dublin and make Dublin, as Dr. O’Regan suggested, a better place to live.“There’s a direct correlation between airport growth and regional growth. Right now, the DAA monopoly is mopping up the growth, with 86% of the market up from 81% five years ago. In the meantime, Cork’s market share has dropped alarming from 10% to 6.5% and Shannon to a lesser degree, from 5.9% to 5.5%. If the regions are to grow, which is essential, these airports must grow their market share. If they don’t, it can only lead to more growth in and pressure on Dublin and less growth in the regions. It must be dealt with,” he said.The Chamber submission calls for current aviation policy to be updated and aligned with the objectives of the NPF. “If the NPF is to be the guiding document for the development of our country, with a focus on supporting effective regional development and our second tier cities, it is vital that the 2015 National Aviation Policy should be updated to align with it.“Currently, much of the growth in passenger numbers is centred on Dublin Airport, which is further adding to its monopolistic position. Unregulated growth of Dublin Airport’s market share will not be in the national interest and will require careful regulation in the future if the Limerick, Galway and Cork cities are to drive their regions’ development in terms of attracting FDI, developing tourism and supporting indigenous industry.”Separately, recognising the importance of the Shannon Estuary, the submission proposes that the road network between Foynes (the country’s largest bulk port), Limerick and Dublin is upgraded and the disused rail-link to it reinstated. It also proposes that the NPF recognizes and supports the potential of a number of key Shannon Estuary as major investment locations, in particular, the site at Ballylongford, Co. Kerry, where a proposed LNG facility has the potential to create 650 construction jobs as well as 100 permanent jobs once completed and be a major addition to Ireland’s energy infrastructure.The development of the M20 between Cork and Limerick was highlighted as a major infrastructure requirement to support second tier cities and complete the Atlantic Corridor. It also recommends revitalising city centres and supporting city development plans, in particular Limerick 2030, to transform disused space and create Living Cities, support rural areas as they seek to diversify their economic base and address the ongoing delay in rolling out broadband.

Foreclosure starts reached a new low in November, however, falling to their lowest level in nearly 10 years, according to Black Knight Financial Services’ First Look at Mortgage Data for November 2015 released Wednesday.November’s total of 66,600 foreclosure starts was the lowest total for one month since April 2006, about two and a half years before the beginning of the housing crisis. The total represents a 9 percent decline from October and nearly a 10 percent decline from November 2014, according to Black Knight. Foreclosure inventory was also way down in November, falling by about 185,000 properties year-over-year down to about 698,000—or approximately 1.38 percent of all residential mortgages in the U.S.While foreclosure starts were steadily declining, however, the number of both 30- and 90-day delinquencies experienced seasonal upticks. The total of mortgage loans that were 30 days overdue but not in foreclosure increased by about 76,000 over-the-month up to about 2.49 million, or 4.92 percent of all mortgages. Despite the monthly increase, that total fell by more than half a million (546,000) year-over-year, according to Black Knight. Concurrently, the number of mortgages that were 30 days or more overdue or in foreclosure rose by about 53,000 from October to November, up to 3.2 million. Despite the monthly increase, that number represented a year-over-year drop of nearly three-quarters of a million (732,000)/The number of residential mortgage loans 90 days or more delinquent but not in foreclosure ticked up from October to November by about 7,000 properties, up to about 827,000, according to Black Knight. That total declined year-over-year by more than a quarter of a million, however (293,000).The monthly pre-payment rate, which is normally a good indicator of refinance activity, inched upward year-over-year by 0.4 percent but took a substantial tumble from October to November of about 16 percent, down to 0.92 percent, according to Black Knight.center_img Tagged with: Black Knight Financial Services First Look at Mortgage Data Foreclosure Inventory Foreclosure Starts Foreclosures Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago December 23, 2015 6,552 Views Share Save Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
