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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Buying the best UK shares after the stock market crash may not sound all that appealing to many investors. After all, there is a very real threat of a prolonged period of economic weakness that could act as a drag on the performance of many industries.However, through buying financially-sound companies in sectors that have solid long-term growth prospects, you can capitalise on low valuations currently on offer. Over time, this may improve your financial prospects, and increase your chances of making a million.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…UK shares with solid financesWith the continued threat of a second market crash, it may be crucial to buy UK shares that have sound finances. They may be in a better position to survive a period of low economic growth that could cause weaker companies to fold.As such, assessing a company’s financial strength through focusing on its financial statements could be a good starting point for all investors. Businesses with modest debt levels, strong cash flow and ample interest coverage during a period when profitability may be lower than previous guidance could stand a better chance of outperforming their peers.Furthermore, UK shares that have wide economic moats may be less affected by difficult operating conditions. An economic moat may consist of factors such as strong customer loyalty, lower costs than rival businesses or a unique product. Companies that have wide economic moats may be able to benefit from a likely long-term economic recovery to a greater extent than their peers.Investing in long-term growth sectorsWorking out which UK shares will deliver strong growth over the long run is a challenging task at the present time. The prospect of a second market crash means that many investors are focused on the short run, and their return of capital.However, by focusing your portfolio on industries with long-term growth potential, you may be able to outperform the wider stock market. For example, growth sectors may include e-commerce activities, healthcare provision and technology. Investing in sectors with clear growth potential may mean that you do not purchase bargain shares, but it may allow you to take part in a likely economic recovery that allows higher valuations to be more easily justified.FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 recovery potentialWhile it may seem unlikely at the present time that UK shares will deliver a long-term recovery, the past performance of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 suggests this is very likely. They have both posted new record highs after every previous bear market.Therefore, a market crash generally provides opportunities to buy high-quality businesses at low prices. By focusing on financially-sound business in growth sectors, you can improve your portfolio’s performance and even obtain a £1m+ valuation.

The misleading allure of rising share prices

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Malcolm Wheatley | Sunday, 7th February, 2021 Image source: Getty Images Puzzled? Let me explain.Handy trackingMany of us use such portfolio-tracking tools, and I still mourn the loss of the now-retired one from Google. These days, I use the free tool provided by the Financial Times – perhaps you too use it, or the one provided by Yahoo. Like anybody else, I like to see nice big percentage gains. But I try not to be fooled by them. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Such tools are a handy way of aggregating together, in one place, multiple accounts with multiple brokerages. Even if you’ve only got one account, they’re also an excellent way of getting a real-time view of your investment portfolios without individually logging into them. “If you expect to be a net saver during the next five years, should you hope for a higher or lower stock market during that period?” Most such tools provide some sort of 12-month comparison, showing how you’re doing now, compared to how you were doing a year ago. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 By the end of February, it would close at 6,581, a fall of some 14% from that 17th January high point. Either way, you get a good feel for how you’re doing, and your performance as an investor.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…Or do you? I’m not so sure.The problem is that a 12-month comparison is precisely that: a comparison between now, and exactly 12months ago. So rather a lot depends on exactly what was happening 12 months ago. Put another way, if the Footsie remains at exactly the same level it is at today, all the way through until 24th March, then on 24th March a 12-month view will show a gain of 23%. And as investors, we’d be feeling pretty smug: a 23% gain in a year. Wow! So rather than mourn the losses since 17th January 2020, I try and focus on the opportunities offered by the Footsie being on sale – and on sale it is, even now, with markets well up from their March 2020 nadir. As he points out, these questions answer themselves. But now ask the same question again, but in the context of stock markets and share prices: In reality, of course, we’d still be 1,200 points below where the market had reached on 17th January 2020. Not so good.Misleading gains, but real opportunitiesWhat to do about such invidious comparisons? Simple: ignore them. Almost always, it’s better to ignore random 12-month comparisons, and make more meaningful comparisons, such as against 2020’s high point of 7,674 on 17th January. Thanks to the Google Finance charting tool, that’s very easy to do. And by the end of January 2020, Covid-19 wobbles had started to affect the markets. The Footsie closed at 7,674 on 17th January. On 31st January, it closed at 7,286 – a 5% fall. 7,674 on 17th January was to be its high-point of the entire year, although we didn’t know that then. The misleading allure of rising share prices Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! And as I remarked in a recent article, I’ve been buying, and have been doing so since the late summer.Warren Buffett’s hamburgersRemember: as investors, while we enjoy seeing gains, the reality is that this means that shares have become more expensive to buy. For income investors, for example, that means a lower yield and less income. Enter Your Email Address As always, Warren Buffett sums it up well:“If you plan to eat hamburgers throughout your life and are not a cattle producer, should you wish for higher or lower prices for beef? Likewise, if you are going to buy a car from time to time but are not an auto manufacturer, should you prefer higher or lower car prices?” With Yahoo’s tool, an annualised gain figure is provided on a share-by-share basis. It’s not enabled by default, and it’s only selectable on those portfolio ‘views’ that can be edited. There’s also a 52-week graphic visualisation, also on a share-by-share basis. 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. And by the end of March – March 24th, to be precise – it will be telling me that I’m an absolute genius. You’ll get that same warm glow, I’m sure. For the time being, we’ve now got that lower stock market. Don’t waste it. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Last week, the first glimmers of reality distortion began to appear in my portfolio. By the end of February, I expect it to be far more visible, with my online portfolio-tracking tool telling me what a smart investor I am. With the Financial Times’ portfolio tracking tool, it’s exactly that: across the complete portfolio as a whole, and across every individual account, it shows the percentage movement between a year ago, and now. There isn’t, I don’t think, any way of switching this off. And on 23rd March, it would fall below the 5,000 level, to 4,993. 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.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.El Rdo. John Floberg, sacerdote supervisor de las iglesias episcopales en el lado de Dakota del Norte de Roca Enhiesta, ha apelado a clérigos y laicos de la Iglesia Episcopal para que acudan a las márgenes del río Misurí en Dakota del Norte el 3 de enero en prueba de testimonio y solidaridad. La actual ruta de la construcción del Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas pasa por debajo del río, que es el suministro de agua de la nación sioux, por encima de tierras que le pertenecen por tratado y a través de zonas sagradas [para los indígenas].En una declaración emitida el 28 de octubre, la Iglesia dijo que el llamado de Floberg se produjo porque él y otros en Dakota del Norte están “preocupados por la creciente represión de los protectores no violentos del agua, entre los cuales hay hombres, mujeres y jóvenes”. La declaración también hacía notar que ese llamado estaba “respaldado por la prudencia del presidente sioux de Roca Enhiesta Dave Archambault II”.La actividad del 3 de noviembre “está concebida para que sea pacífica, sea devota, sea no violenta y para mostrar la solidaridad de la Iglesia con la lucha de la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta”, dijo Floberg a Episcopal News Service.“Estamos haciéndolo deliberadamente para no tener un enfrentamiento con la policía”, dijo él. “Le estamos dando un testimonio a la policía, le estamos dando un testimonio al Oleoducto [DAPL por su sigla en inglés] de que estamos de parte de las personas de esta tribu, pero que no vamos a enfrentarnos con ellos [los agentes del orden público]”.Desde que Floberg hizo el llamado el 23 de octubre a través de email y Facebook, más de 100 clérigos han dicho que participarían, la mitad de ellos episcopales. Cien clérigos fue la meta original de Floberg. “Eso es en extremo aleccionador y me siento extremadamente agradecido de que la Iglesia Episcopal esté respondiendo al llamado”, dijo él.El apoyo denominacional al llamado de Floberg se basa en el continuo respaldo de la Iglesia a esta campaña de protección poco después de que comenzara seriamente en agosto. Eso incluye la petición que hiciera la semana pasada el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia de que los agentes del orden público “disminuyeran la provocación militar y policial en los campamentos, y en sus cercanías, de los que protestan pacíficamente [contra] el proyecto del Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas”. El apoyo de la Iglesia al llamado a dar testimonio se produjo al día siguiente de que algunos opositores a la construcción del oleoducto fueran sacados a la fuerza de un campamento. El campamento se había plantado el 22 de octubre cerca de la Autopista 1806 y fuera de los campamentos existentes en tierras del Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU. cerca del río Misurí.Agentes de orden público se alinean el 27 de octubre mientras se preparan para desmantelar un nuevo campamento de opositores al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas de los bordes de la Autopista 1806. Foto de Caroline Grueskin vía Twitter.El Departamento del Alguacil del Condado de Morton dirigió esa acción , según dijo, luego de que fracasara un intento de negociar con los ocupantes del nuevo campamento. Los agentes del departamento y otros agentes de orden público usaron, entre otras cosas, “un aparato de gran potencia acústica que manda una estridente advertencia” a “controlar y dispersar la multitud de manifestantes”. Los informes de las redes sociales dijeron que las autoridades, algunos de cuyos agentes estaban armados de largos garrotes, también usaron gas pimienta y les dispararon pequeños proyectiles de goma a los manifestantes.El alguacil Kyle Kirchmeier calificó el nuevo campamento de “problema de seguridad pública” porque la gente estaba bloqueando carreteras y autopistas del estado, así como invadiendo la propiedad privada. El terreno fue adquirido recientemente por la compañía constructora [del oleoducto], pero también algunos la reclaman como perteneciente a la nación sioux. Y la capacidad de corporaciones no familiares de poseer o explotar una granja y rancho de Dakota del Norte está actualmente en disputa, enturbiando aún más el problema.El departamento dijo en las últimas horas del 27 de octubre que 141 personas habían sido arrestadas durante el desmantelamiento del campamento y la remoción de una barricada en una cercana carretera del condado. “Los agentes se enfrentaron a violencia y resistencia incluida una manifestante que disparó un arma contra la fila de policías, manifestantes que les lanzaron cocteles Molotov y que incendiaron vehículos y desperdicios”, dijo el departamento.Uno de los partidarios de la acción policial dijo en la página de Facebook del departamento que estaba bien que los agentes estuvieran desalojando a la “canalla”.Una foto aérea del Departamento del Aguacil del Condado de Morton el 27 de octubre muestra un incendio que se informó había sido provocado por manifestantes que se oponen al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas en el Camino Comarcal 134. Foto Del Departamento del Alguacil del Condado de Morton vía Facebook.Mientras la acción de la policía tenía lugar, la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta dijo que estaba orando por la paz y le pedía a la policía que “garantizara la seguridad de todos”.“Llamamos a los millares de protectores del agua que están en solidaridad con nosotros contra el DAPL que permanezcan en paz y oración”, dijo la tribu en una declaración. “Cualquier acto de violencia afecta nuestra causa y no es bien recibido aquí”.Floberg se hizo eco de esta preocupación, diciendo que horas antes de que el alguacil del Condado de Morton actuara, él se había encontrado con una barricada en la Autopista 1806 que consistía de un Chevrolet Suburban y un gran tronco. Él le informó a los agentes de la Oficina de Asuntos Indígenas de EE.UU. porque 1806 es la principal autopista norte-sur en la zona y un bloqueo de la misma podía impedir que las ambulancias llegaran a las comunidades aledañas. La barricada fue removida poco después sin incidentes, contó él.“Lo que la Iglesia y nuestro ministerio en Roca Enhiesta está tratando de hacer hoy es afirmarse sobre la roca de lo que en esto no cambia ni se mueve, y tratamos de intervenir porque la violencia que se produjo ayer no es algo que puede repetirse”, dijo. Le va a costar la vida a alguien”.Agentes de orden público bloquean el 28 de enero la Autopista 1806, cerrando el tránsito entre Fort Rice y Cannonball en la reserva de la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta en Dakota del Norte. Foto del Departamento del Alguacil del Condado de Morton vía Facebook.Ese lugar inamovible es la roca de una acción devota, pacífica y no violenta, añadió él. Se trata también de apoyar el deseo de la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta de tener acceso al agua potable. Los sioux también quieren proteger la zona sagrada en torno al río Misurí, que ha estado habitada por lo menos desde el siglo XIV, donde los nativos sobrevivientes Masacre de Whitestone Hill del 3 de septiembre de 1863, cruzaron el río en lo que ahora es Cannon Ball, Dakota del Norte y donde los sioux comerciaban regularmente con las vecinas tribus mandan, hidatsa y arikara, aunque a veces estaban en conflicto, explicó Floberg. Más información sobre el sitio se encuentra aquí.Finalmente, el acto de protección no está destinado solamente al presente, dijo él, sino más bien a las “siete generaciones” futuras y a los “niños que nunca conoceremos”.El polémico oleoducto de 1,857 kilómetros se extenderá desde los campos petrolíferos de Bakken, en el noroeste de Dakota del Norte hasta Patoka, Illinois, conduciendo hasta 570.000 barriles de petróleo al día. Energy Transfer Partners, la compañía constructora del oleoducto con sede en Dallas, dice que la construcción creará de 8.000 a 12.000 puestos de trabajo locales, si bien la AFL-CIO ha reducido la cifra a 4.500. La compañía constructora dice también que el oleoducto proporcionará un medio de transportar el petróleo “más directo, más económico, más seguro y ambientalmente responsable” y reducirá el actual transporte por ferrocarril y carretera.Archambault le pidió a la secretaria de Justicia Loretta Lynch el 25 de octubre que investigara “las posibles violaciones de derechos civiles” que conlleva la respuesta de los agentes de orden público a la continua oposición a la construcción del oleoducto.El Departamento de Justicia de EE.UU. respondió ese mismo día, diciendo que estaban siguiendo el manejo del proyecto del Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas a fin de “facilitar la comunicación, distender tensiones, apoyar las protestas pacíficas y mantener la seguridad pública”. – La Rda.

Help for Heroes site sees surge in donations following soldier’s murder

first_img Help for Heroes has received a surge in donations following the murder yesterday of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich. The donations follow the report that the soldier was wearing one of the charity’s t-shirts.Help for Heroes’ website “crashed within hours of the killing beneath the weight of the heightened interest” according to The Daily Telegraph, and is today operating in a cut-down version, with a single holding page expressing the charity’s sadness at the soldier’s death.The page stated “Thousands of people have visited our website wishing to donate or to buy H4H T-Shirts in an extraordinary demonstration of support and defiance of terrorism”. It listed ways in which people could do so, and asked for patience as it worked to respond to the reaction.

Doctors, nurses, health care workers save lives STAT, march against Islamophobia at RNC

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Cleveland – In a powerful response to the anti-Muslim bigotry continually spouted by Donald Trump, a group of doctors, nurses, health care workers, immigrant rights activists and others marched together on the last day of the Republican National Convention. The action was organized by STAT (Stand Together Against Trump), first formed when the Trump campaign came to Cleveland in March. “Stat” is a common medical term used in an emergency situation to mean “instantly” or “urgent.”STAT describes its membership as “young professionals whose work regularly brings together individuals from races, religions and genders that are frequently insulted and scapegoated by Donald Trump.” For many of the young people who make up the group, protesting in public and marching July 21 in STAT’s first big action was a new experience. But they formed a solid coalition, including Latino/a activists, to push back the racist, Islamophobic and anti-immigrant agenda of the hateful right wing.After 1,000 people marched with STAT across the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge, a rally was held later that evening at Public Square, the site of many protest activities during the RNC.last_img read more

Martha Griffin is the organizer but she is quick to give credit to the many who prepare and serve the home cooked, from scratch Thanksgiving dinner.Cornelius makes funds available for the hams, turkeys and other food items for the holiday meal with the exception of the contributions of Robert Boyd.“Robert grows all of the turnips, collards and sweet potatoes that we serve,” said Martha Griffin. “We have people from Lily White Church and the Jerusalem Temple who volunteer to do the cooking. Members of the Brundidge Rotary Club and the Brundidge Business Association deliver the meals. It’s a community effort.”On Tuesday, Martha Griffin said 400 take-out meals were prepared and another 100-plus would be served on site at Brundidge Station.Cornelius Griffin said it was a real blessing for him to be in Brundidge and see the smiles on the faces of those who enjoy the community Thanksgiving dinner.“This is only the second time since I went away to college that I’ve gotten to have Thanksgiving at home,” he said.“This is special for me.”His friends and neighbors wanted the inside scoop on the NFL from their favorite star.“Ah, man,” was about all Griffin had to say about the 3-7 record of the Redskins.“We need to stay focused for the rest of the season,” he said.“We lost a heartbreaker to Dallas in the last minutes of the game but we’ve got to go out and compete. We’ve got six more games and we need to make them count.”Griffin skirted questions about retirement.“But 10 years is a long time for a D-tackle,” he said.“What about the Iron Bowl?” someone asked.“Twenty-eight to seven. Roll Tide!” the former Alabama gridiron star said with a big smile.Then he turned serious and admitted that he is living the dream of many who play “the game.”“I am living the dream,” Griffin said.“God gave me the abilities and He gave me the opportunities. He gives us all opportunities, just not all in the same arena. I wasn’t the strongest or the fastest but I took advantage of the opportunities. It has been a privilege for me to play in the NFL. It’s been a good journey but it will come to an end sooner or later – and probably sooner.”Griffin then turned his thoughts back to the “village.”“I can’t forget about what this town has done for me, what it means to me,” he said.“I just want to let everyone know how much I appreciate home.” Sponsored Content Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day It does take a village.No one knows that better than Cornelius Griffin.On Tuesday, Griffin returned to the “village” that has encouraged and supported him through good times and tough times. He came home because he wanted to be a part of the Thanksgiving celebration. He wanted to personally say “thank you,” to the place where his home and his heart will always be.
