  • Carnival Corporation! I’d forget it and invest £5,000 in FTSE 100 shares like this now

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Companies like Carnival Corporation (LSE:CCL) look ridiculously cheap right now. Still, I consider buying Carnival’s shares to be too risky. Here’s why I’d prefer to buy other FTSE 100 shares.Carnival Corporation sharesFirst, it is absolutely true that the company’s stock looks like a bargain after having fallen more than 73% from a year high. That’s why Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund bought a stake in the cruise operator. 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 cruise operator’s financial positionNevertheless, the company’s shares are cheap for a very good reason. Carnival reported a net loss of $781m for the first quarter of 2020 compared to a net profit of $336m for the first quarter of 2019. This was not just because of cancelled voyages. It was mainly due to asset depreciation and reputational damages. Things could have been worse for the cruise operator. Reputational and asset depreciation losses don’t lead to cash outflows.However, it was quite unpleasant for the shareholders to hear that Carnival Corporation suspended its dividends and share buyback programme. The company was also forced to issue plenty of debt and equity to finance its operations. As my colleague Harvey Jones pointed out, this financing might be enough for the cruise operator to survive until November.  Still, the most worrying sign for investors is the fact that the company reported these losses on the 19 March. The next earnings release date will be the 18 June. I think that there will be many more negative news items to come. So, the share price will be under pressure.There is also a risk that the coronavirus pandemic will not be over by autumn. In this case, the cruise operator might go bankrupt.Even though Carnival Corporation is the leader in the industry and the pandemic might be over fairly soon, the company is not a good fit for defensive FTSE 100 investors right now.However, brave long-term Footsie stock pickers willing to take additional risks might end up making the best buy in their lives if they invest in Carnival’s shares. It looks to me that it is a typical high-risk, high-reward investment.FTSE 100 companies worth buyingEstablished pharmaceutical companies like GlaxoSmithKline continue to make a profit during this downturn. It is not just a matter of who will be the first to develop the Covid-19 vaccine. It is also about producing and selling medical goods that help to combat the coronavirus symptoms. Glaxo enjoys an investment-grade credit rating, issued by Moody’s and S&P. Even though its shares don’t look extremely cheap, they are still well below their January highs. Another investment idea in this time of uncertainty seems to be Tesco. It is not a rock star in terms of efficiency, and its net profit margin is only 1.44%, which is quite low. Still, it can compete in terms of sales revenue since it is the biggest retailer in the UK. The important thing is that it sells groceries and other necessities. Consumers don’t cut spending on things like this even during recessions. ConclusionIt is up to every investor to decide how much risk to take. But I’d prefer to buy companies that do not currently struggle and park some of my £5,000 into companies like Tesco and GlaxoSmithKline.

  • Action for Children launches multimillion pound fundraising appeal on child neglect

    first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Celebrity TV presenter Davina McCall launched the appeal with a primetime, 3-minute advert that appeared during Channel 4 News last night, talking about child neglect and calling on the public to support the charity’s appeal by making a donation. Press adverts were used to trail the advert, and will continue to be used throughout the campaign. Davina, who will continue to appear in both brand and DRTV adverts, is joined in her support by a host of other celebrities who are supporting media activity, including Timothy Spall, David Morrissey, Jessica Hynes and Shameless star David Threfall.Derek Humphries, DTV Director and writer of the adverts explained, ‘It was clear from the outset that this appeal demands much more than any standard fundraising approach. It’s a once-in-a-generation campaign. It’s about making the nation sit up, take notice, and take action for neglected children.”The charity is striving to achieve its goal of raising £17 million to help neglected children through a variety of fundraising tactics including: street prospecting and cold-telemarketing to recruit new supporters, and direct mail to prospective donors that will include a survey and ‘pound pack’, calling on people to return a £1 donation.The charity is also embarking on a media partnership with eight local radio stations in the North of England and Scotland that are part of the Bauer network (4). Stations will be engaging listeners on the issue of neglect through locally tailored editorial and online content, in order to raise over £500K in support of the appeal.This is complemented by a high value fundraising strategy and also a programme of local fundraising through a calendar of charity events across the country. Supporters can also create bespoke marketing materials in support of events they are organising themselves through a unique ‘web to print’ system that will create and deliver a range of Action for Children branded materials.James Briggs, Co-Founder of Open Fundraising said, “Open has relished the challenge of working with Action for Children to plan and integrate a fundraising campaign across so many channels – drawing together TV, press, radio, mail, street, phone, web and email in a way that integrates them effectively but is also completely robust in terms of tracking ROI and net income by source. Building that budget and getting all the fulfilment ready across channels was a huge undertaking for us and we can’t wait to see the results.”Polly Neate, Action for Children’s Executive Director of External Relations and Communications says, “Neglect is a growing problem even though we understand the causes – we must work across society to fix it. This appeal is a first for the charity on so many levels. We have never used such a range and combination of fundraising, marketing, campaigning, PR and advertising tools in support of one campaign. We’re delighted at the synergy of messaging that we’re achieving through integrated fundraising and awareness-raising activity.”Money raised through the charity’s appeal will go towards vital support services to help children and families that are struggling. The charity is calling on the public to take their action for children by visiting www.actionforchildren.org.ukNotes to Editors1. The study that this statistic is taken from is Gilbert, R, Spatz, Widom, C, Browne, K, Fergusson, D, Webb, E, Janson, S (2008 – 2009) Burden and consequences of child maltreatment in high-income countries, The Lancet, Child Maltreatment Series, articles 1-32. In the UK, almost half (48%) of children are identified as being at risk of harm because of neglect. This is calculated as a national average of the percentage of all cases subject to a child protection plan in England or the child protection register in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that have been classified as neglect http://www.dcsf.gov.uk/rsgateway/DB/SFR/s000873/index.shtml,http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2009/09/28115405/0http://www.dhsspsni.gov.uk/children_order_tables_2007-08_final.pdf http://www.dataunitwales.gov.uk/Documents/Publications/lgd01117_cpr_bulletin_2008_v2_eng.pdf3. Neglect is the persistent failure to meet a child’s basic needs, likely to result in the serious impairment of the child’s health or development. It can be harder to recognise than other forms of child abuse because it is often a symptom of other long-term and complex problems in a family rather than an easily recognisable one off event. Neglect comes in many guises. The easiest way to spot the signs is if you see things on a regular basis over a period of time, it could be a child who frequently goes hungry, regularly going to school in dirty clothes, not being taken to the doctors when ill, frequently left unsupervised and living in a dirty home.4. The eight radio stations from the Bauer network participating in the partnership are: Key 103, Radio City 96.7, 96.3 Radio Aire, Hallam FM, Metro Radio, Forth One, North Sound and Moray Firth Radio.5. Action for Children is one of the UK’s largest children’s charities working with over 156,000 children, young people and their families at around 420 projects across the UK.6. Previously known as NCH, Action for Children is committed to helping the most vulnerable children and young people break through injustice, deprivation and inequality so they can achieve their full potential.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 13 October 2009 | News Children’s charity Action for Children is launching a major fundraising appeal today (Tuesday, October 13th) to raise £17 million over the next three years to tackle child neglect. Money raised will fund targeted programmes to support vulnerable families and tackle specific areas of neglect, train and advise frontline staff and support active campaign work to ensure that children’s voices are heard and their wellbeing protected.Neglect is the persistent failure to meet a child’s basic needs, likely to result in the serious impairment of the child’s health or development. Studies suggest that up to 10% of children are neglected (1), and it is the biggest reason for a child to need protection, ahead of both physical and sexual abuse (2). Yet despite being a major issue, child neglect is an overlooked area of child protection in the UK and the charity fears that neglected children will continue to slip through the net with potentially devastating consequences.Action for Children is executing a three year programme of fundraising activities across the UK, integrated with marketing and PR tactics, to raise awareness and understanding of neglect (3) and fund vital support to tackle the issue, in a bid to galvanise the public’s support for the appeal.

  • Jailed Turkish journalists soon to be stigmatized by obligatory uniform

    first_img December 28, 2017 Jailed Turkish journalists soon to be stigmatized by obligatory uniform Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled by a new Turkish decree under which detainees accused of links to terrorism or to the July 2016 coup attempt will have to wear a uniform of a specific colour for court appearances. This arbitrary measure will violate the right of dozens of detained Turkish journalists to be presumed innocent.In addition to being jailed on extremely grave charges, these journalists will now be stigmatized by the colour-coded attire they must wear when being tried.Under Decree No. 696, published in the official gazette on 24 December, detained defendants charged with involvement in the 2016 coup attempt will have to wear a brown uniform in court, while those charged under the terrorism law will have to wear a grey one.These two categories of charges, which are defined in an extremely vague and broad manner, have been systematically brought against the victims of the 18-month-old purge in Turkey, who have included many journalists. According to initial estimates, this decree could affect more than 58,000 detainees.More than 100 journalists are currently detained in Turkey, of whom at least 40 were arrested in connection with their journalistic activities, according to RSF’s provisional tally. Despite the lack of hard evidence, almost all are alleged to have been members of a terrorist group or involved in the coup attempt. Most are still detained provisionally pending the outcome of their trials.“The sole aim of this measure is to humiliate, intimidate and stigmatize the detainees concerned,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “In violation of the right to be presumed innocent, imprisoned journalists will be identified with the perpetrators of the bloody coup attempt of 15 July 2016. We call for the immediate repeal of this decree, which constitutes yet another step in the Turkish judicial system’s transformation into an instrument of political revenge.”The new measures are expected to take force in a month’s time, as soon as the justice ministry has drafted the implementation regulations. All detainees except pregnant women and minors will have to wear a uniform for their court appearances.Many prisoners may refuse to wear the uniform with as yet unknown consequences that could include being barred from appearing in court. The obligation to wear a uniform led to waves of hunger strikes in the 1980s in which several political prisoners died.The reintroduction of uniforms had been mooted for several months. After a much-reported court appearance by a former soldier in a T-shirt bearing the word “Hero” in July, President Erdoğan promised that those charged with “crimes against the state” would soon be made to appear in court in uniforms like those worn by Guantánamo detainees.Turkey is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. The already worrying media situation in Turkey has become critical under the state of emergency proclaimed after the July 2016 coup attempt. Around 150 media outlets have been closed, mass trials are being held and the country now holds the world record for the number of professional journalists detained.
