Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Enter Your Email Address As a dedicated seeker of cheap shares, I’m always on the lookout for sharp price movements that push company valuations into bargain territory. Given the extreme volatility of the UK stock market in 2020, this has often been a happy hunting ground.In March, cheap shares were everywhereAt the start of 2020, the FTSE 100 was riding high, peaking at nearly 7,675 points on 17 January. Then came an almighty stock market crash that saw the index lose 2,680 points (35%) to close below 5,000 on 23 March. This left the UK’s main market index bursting with bargains, with cheap shares in many good businesses hitting multi-year lows. Shockingly, some stocks lost the majority of their value in just over two months. Wow.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…The FTSE 100 bounces back, but bargains remainToday, the FTSE 100 index hovers around 5,860 points, up more than a sixth (17.5%) from the dark days of March. Yet despite this bounce-back, there are plenty of shares in the Footsie’s bargain bin. By cheap shares, I mean companies with solid balance sheets, lowly rated earnings and, ideally, decent dividends (or the prospect of future cash payouts). Right now, I would estimate that perhaps a quarter to a third of all FTSE 100 shares have fallen into the bargain bin.Barclays gets better in Q3On Thursday 16 October, I wrote about the continued decline in the share price of Barclays (LSE: BARC). With the share price closing at 101.54p, I said that I would happily buy these cheap shares. After all, they had crashed to almost half of their 52-week high of 193p, hit on 16 December last year.The good news for the bank’s stressed owners is that its share price has leapt upwards this week. As I write, Barclays shares trade at 111.58p, up almost 10p (9.9%) since my recent article. Most of this surge in value came today, thanks to the Big Four bank releasing an improved set of results.Happily for holders of these cheap shares, Barclays’ financial position has improved dramatically from the second to third quarter. The group’s income of £16.8bn was up 3% year to date (YTD). Credit impairment charges (for loan losses) fell by almost two-thirds (63%) from Q2 to Q3. Group profit before tax was £2.4bn YTD. The bank’s Common Equity Tier One ratio — a measure of its financial strength — was 14.6%, some 3.3% percentage points above its regulatory minimum. And yet I still believe that Barclays stock sells too cheaply today.I’d buy Barclays’ cheap shares, despite their leapObviously, 2020 is going to be the worst year for Barclays and its shareholders since the global financial crisis of 2007-09. But that’s all in the past. Buyers of cheap shares today are only interested in the future. In these extreme times, Barclays’ stock cannot be analysed through the usual metrics. But the bank’s market value today is just £18.1bn, which is a petite price tag for one of Britain’s biggest lenders.In summary, it’s very clear that Barclays will survive the coronavirus crisis to resume paying cash dividends next year. Therefore, I’d buy these cheap shares today (preferably in an ISA) to bank tax-free capital gains, plus the return of juicy dividends for a passive income to retire rich!

2 FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Although 2020 was a tough year, FTSE 100 stocks Diageo (LSE: DGE) and Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB) have done well over the past decade. Both stocks have more than doubled and that’s not counting the dividends that each pay. Given their past performance, overall operational strength, and potential, I’d still buy both companies at their current share prices.DiageoDiageo has regained some of its momentum. For the half year ended 31 December 2020, the company reported free cash flow of £1.8bn and management raised the interim dividend by 2% to 27.96p per share. Management is also “cautiously optimistic about the near-term continued recovery” of its business and overall confident in the future.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…In the future, I reckon Diageo could potentially maintain some of that momentum by utilising data and digital insights to increase marketing effectiveness. Given its financial strength, I think the company could also expand through M&A or by potentially creating new brands.To me, Diageo has an attractive combination of defensive characteristics and growth potential. Given that its products are affordable for many, demand for Diageo doesn’t change all that much during difficult times. Diageo was still profitable during the recession in 2009 for example. With many of Diageo’s customers in developing nations where incomes will likely grow substantially in the future, I reckon the company could potentially grow earnings in the future too.With that said, the market is expecting Diageo’s fundamentals to recover pretty strongly given its recent rally. If that doesn’t happen or if Diageo’s brands don’t sell as much as the market expects, the stock has potential downside.Reckitt BenckiserReckitt Benckiser is a consumer staple with a portfolio of leading brands in hygiene, health, and nutrition. Given the company’s scale, Reckitt Benckiser can often realise attractive margins even while spending substantial money on advertising. With its portfolio of leading brands, the company also has a pretty wide moat.As a leading consumer staple, Reckitt Benckiser benefits from long-term trends such as rising incomes and urbanisation, which often helps increase economic growth. Due to Reckitt Benckiser’s position in the market and its operational strength, I reckon the company has the potential to grow around 4%-6% on average annually in the medium term if management continues to perform as they expect. With that type of growth, I think Reckitt Benckiser earnings per share could grow in the future and management could potentially return more capital back to shareholders.While management kept the full-year dividend per share for fiscal year 2020 the same at 174.6p, I think they could increase the dividend in later years as the company potentially achieves its goal of strengthening the balance sheet.Although many leading consumer staples have historically been great companies to own, they face potential challenges from online competition. Given their position as platform operators, companies like Amazon could potentially compete more with Reckitt Benckiser in the future with internal brands. Those internal brands could potentially put pressure on Reckitt Benckiser’s margins or take away some of Reckitt Benckiser’s growth potential. Reckitt Benckiser could also have downside if the economy weakens or if management doesn’t deliver the results the market expects.

Ailing magazine editor held illegally in Brazzaville for more than a month

first_img Congo-BrazzavilleAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedJudicial harassment Receive email alerts Congo-BrazzavilleAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedJudicial harassment Congo celebrates World Press Freedom Day by sentencing a journalist to six months in prison The country’s media regulator, the Higher Council for Freedom of Communication (CSLC), initially ordered Sel-Piment’s suspension, but the order has been lifted, the CSLC’s president told RSF. March 5, 2021 Ailing magazine editor held illegally in Brazzaville for more than a month News Help by sharing this information Arrests of journalists are relatively infrequent in the Republic of Congo but, if they are singled out by authorities or by influential people close to the government, journalists are sometimes detained for a long time. The circumstances of Malonga’s arrest recall that of Ghys Fortuné Bemba, the publisher of the independent weekly Talassa, who was arrested by the intelligence services in January 2017, shortly after publishing an op-ed by a former rebel leader. Held for 18 months, he was finally released following an energetic campaign on his behalf in which RSF played a leading role. He then left the country for security reasons. In his book De l’enfer à la liberté (From hell to freedom), published in 2019, he described the appalling conditions in which he was held, which included solitary confinement without even being able to talk to guards, the lack of a toilet, water and electricity in his cell, and being denied adequate food. Le journaliste Raymond Malonga détenu depuis plus d’un mois à la maison d’arrêt de Brazzaville au Congo. RSF_en Malonga’s lawyer told RSF that he hoped that a hearing would be held next week at which his client might finally be released. Under the Republic of Congo’s law on freedom of information and communication, journalists can only be given a prison sentence for defamation if they have a previous conviction, which is not the case with Malonga. “It is outrageous that a journalist accused of nothing more than defamation should have been snatched from his hospital bed, placed under arrest and jailed for more than a month regardless of the law and his health,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “This journalist’s arbitrary and prolonged detention in the middle of an election campaign sends a disastrous political signal. The law and institutions should prevail over the law of the strongest.” Malonga was arrested for printing a story from a website about embezzlement accusations against Georgette Okemba, the wife of Jean-Dominique “JDO” Okemba, who is the nephew of President Denis Sassou Nguesso. JDO heads the National Security Council, which oversees all of the Republic of Congo’s military and police services. The country’s president for 36 of the past 41 years, Nguesso is currently seeking yet another term in an election on 21 March. The Republic of Congo, also known as Congo-Brazzaville, is ranked 118th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. March 31, 2021 Find out more Organisation February 5, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reiterates its call for the release of a magazine publisher in Republic of Congo who is ill and has been held for more than a month on a defamation charge in violation of media legislation, although a presidential election campaign is now under way. This journalist should not be in prison, RSF said, urging the authorities to apply the law fairly. News News to go further May 4, 2021 Find out more Although accused solely of a press offence, Malonga was taken from his hospital bed to prison by intelligence officials. Follow the news on Congo-Brazzaville The publisher of Sel-Piment, a satirical magazine that is very critical of the government, Raymond Malonga has been detained in Brazzaville since 2 February and his family are now very concerned for his physical well-being. “My father is ill and had been on a drip-feed at the hospital for several days when he was arrested,” his son told RSF, adding: “His health has not improved in prison.” The family regrets that attempts to mediate with the plaintiff have been unsuccessful. RSF first drew attention to the illegal nature of his detention three days after his arrest.

The petition has been filed by ASA Umar Farook stating that around 600 residents of Tamil Nadu are stuck in Delhi. However, no facilities have been arranged by either the State or the Central Government for the welfare of such people and as such they are living in distress, without availability of food, medicines, etc. “The Central and State Government, all of a sudden, announced the lockdown and implementation of Sec. 144, without facilitating any transit for those who have been stuck in far distance from their home town. …Few people left with no other option, started to walk for miles to reach their hometown, in which few have died on their way back home. It is such an indigestible tragedy, misfortune of poor people and inaction on the part of the State Government,” the Petitioner submitted. He has contended that when people can be brought from abroad after medical testing by arranging a separate airplane, then why the state cannot arrange a similar mechanism for testing and repatriating the people stranded in different States across the country. The Petitioner also pointed out that Uttar Pradesh Government took prompt steps to bring back around 4,000 of its residents from Delhi by sending private buses, and that the Tamil Nadu Government should also have taken the cue. Thus, he has submitted that the state Government is duty bound, under Article 39 of the Constitution, to protect the lives of its citizens. “Welfare state plays a key role in protection of its citizens. It’s based on the Principles of the equality of opportunity, equitable distribution of wealth, and public responsibility for those unable to avail themselves of the minimal provisions for good life. Therefore, the state assumes primary responsibility for the welfare of its Citizens. This responsibility in theory ought to be comprehensive, because all aspects of welfare are considered and universally applied to citizens as a “right”. Hence, the Respondents must take immediate action to transport and give proper guidelines to serve the basic needs like foods, medicine, etc.,” the Petitioner submitted. He has prayed the High Court to direct the Central and the State Government to immediately transit the natives of Tamil Nadu, who have tested “Negative” for the Corona infection, and are stranded in Delhi due to the lockdown. He has also prayed for a direction to ensure that such people are provided with adequate means to lead a dignified life by ensuring the supply of food, medicines, etc. Petition filed through Advocates A.

COVID-19- Jail Inmates Not Being Vaccinated In The State Of Assam: Gauhati High Court Seeks Govt’s Response Within 3 Weeks

first_imgNews UpdatesCOVID-19- Jail Inmates Not Being Vaccinated In The State Of Assam: Gauhati High Court Seeks Govt’s Response Within 3 Weeks Sparsh Upadhyay22 April 2021 11:58 PMShare This – xThe Gauhati High Court has asked the State Government to file its response within 3 weeks, on a suo moto PIL concerning the jail inmates, who are allegedly not being vaccinated in the state of Assam. Registering the matter as a suo moto PIL (pursuant to a letter sent by an NGO, Nilima Studio) the Bench of Chief Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia and Justice Kalyan Rai Surana, issued this order. The plea before the Court The letter has been sent by a unit of Studio Nilima, namely Pratidhwani, which has been conducting regular visits to the correctional homes including the Central jails at Guwahati, Tezpur, and Jorhat along with the District Jails (in the State of Assam) in collaboration with Assam State Legal Service Authority and the respective District Legal Service Authority. The letter states that during recent inquiries of Pratidhwani, it came to know that in spite of the COVID-19 vaccination drive being carried out all over the country and that the Jail authorities and the officials working in different district jails of Assam have been vaccinated, the inmates have not been vaccinated to date except in Central Jail, Silchar. Importantly, the plea states, “In view of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic being on the rise and with the increasing number of positive cases being detected each passing day, it has become imperative that the vaccine is made available to the inmates in the different district and central jails of the State who are above 60 years of age and the inmates between 45 to 60 years of age with co-morbidities.” Further, the letter states that Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India are guaranteed to all persons including prisoners and that in a catena of decisions, the Courts have held that fundamental rights, which also include basic human rights, continue to be available to a prisoner during his incarceration in prison. “Considering the fact that the vaccination drive being a part of the policy decision taken by the Government, the same needs to be implemented uniformly at the earliest, particularly considering the increasing number of new positive Covid-19 cases being detected every day,” the plea adds. Lastly, the letter submits that that the facilities that are available to a normal citizen and the precautions that they can take are not available to the inmates in different districts and central jails of the State. “Under such circumstances, the inmates are at a greater risk of the virus. As such, it becomes furthermore essential and necessary to provide vaccination to the inmates on an urgent basis. The same not having been done has led to the violation of the fundamental rights of the inmates guaranteed under Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India. Such inaction on the part of the authorities is also violative of their own operational guidelines,” concludes the letter.Click Here To Download The LetterRead LetterTagsChief Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia Justice Kalyan Rai Surana vaccination of jail inmates Jail Inmates assam government Prisoners right #Covid Vaccine Gauhati High Court vaccination drive COVID -19 Next Storylast_img read more

Government launches public consultation into UK health

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Government launches public consultation into UK healthOn 1 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. The Government has begun a wide-ranging public consultation on the nation’shealth, looking at how best to tackle issues such as obesity, smoking andsexually-transmitted diseases. The process is set to lead to the framing of a White Paper on public health,which will be published later this year. Health secretary John Reid said he wanted contributions from as wide a fieldas possible, including health professionals. “We need a big debate about the relative roles of Government,individuals and industries in tackling this vital challenge,” he said. “We need to find the right balance, rejecting both the nanny state andthe Pontius Pilate state that washes its hands of its citizens’ health,”he added. The Department of Health (DoH) is keen to examine what its role should be inproviding health and support, but also what role food retailers and advertisersshould be playing in offering and promoting healthier alternatives. Peter Tiplady, chairman of the British Medical Association’s (BMA) publichealth committee, said action to tackle the crisis in public health wasoverdue, with a law banning smoking in workplaces and public areas a priority. He also called for speedier access to genito-urinary clinics forsexually-transmitted infections, and to giving children more access to exerciseand healthier foods. Deborah Arnott, director of the anti-smoking charity Ash, said: “Such ameasure would not only safeguard the health of everyone against the hazards ofsecond-hand smoke, but has popular support. This one measure would also resultin fewer heart and cancer disease deaths and a better quality of life forall.” And Dame Yve Buckland, chairwoman of the Health Development Agency, said therewere roles for the health services and local and national government in makingit easier for people to make healthy choices. www.doh.gov.uk/publich.htmlast_img read more
