• Value investing has had a record month. This cheap share is up 32%, but I’d buy now

    first_img Cliff D’Arcy | Sunday, 29th November, 2020 | More on: MNG 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. With November almost over, what a month it’s been for UK shareholders. News of Joe Biden’s US election victory gave cheap shares an early boost. Then news of three effective Covid-19 vaccines lit the fuse and shares skyrocketed like fireworks. So far in November, the FTSE 100 index has soared by 790 points since Halloween, up over 14% in four weeks in a record-breaking comeback. It’s a similar tale across the Atlantic, with the S&P 500, NASDAQ and Dow Jones Industrial Index all setting record highs in the past week.The FTSE 100 has had a rough yearAlthough this month has seen a record-breaking rebound, the FTSE 100 has had a poor 2020. It’s down nearly 16%) this calendar year, even after November’s fireworks. With few big tech stocks and heavy weightings in banks, oil & gas, and miners, the Footsie has fallen out of favour among global investors. Nevertheless, it’s been an amazing month for value investors, as the cheap shares soared in November’s relief rally.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 fact, this month’s sudden switch from growth stocks into value shares was the ‘most violent’ on record, according to analysts. The arrival and distribution of Covid-19 vaccines in 2021 is expected to reignite global growth and boost corporate earnings. Even so, US growth stocks today trade at an average of 38 times earnings, according to Citigroup. Meanwhile, value stocks trade at an average of 17 times earnings. To me, this suggests a strong potential for higher returns over the next decade from cheap shares than from racy, popular stocks.These cheap shares are up 32%, but still a bargainSince the global financial crisis of 2007-09, growth/momentum investing has thrashed value investing, which has endured its worst slump in nearly 200 years. However, as the economy recovers, I see cheap shares in quality companies returning to favour, thanks to their low valuations and high dividends. For example, I’ve long argued that shares in well-known investment manager M&G (LSE: MNG) were too low-priced. Indeed, M&G’s stock was repeatedly among the cheapest FTSE 100 shares this year.M&G was part of the giant Prudential, until it was spun off from its parent in October 2019. Now it’s a FTSE 100 company in its own right. Before the Covid-19 market crash, M&G shares hit an all-time high of 251.4p on 19 February. By 18 March, they had crashed to 84.12p, down two-thirds in a month. Yikes. By mid-August, these cheap shares had recovered to above 182p, but then nosedived again, hitting 146.65p on 30 October.The FTSE 100 may be up over 14% this month, but M&G shares have more than doubled this bounce. On Friday, they closed at 193.45p, up 46.8p (31.9%) since Halloween. Even after gaining nearly a third in four weeks, I still see these cheap shares as worth buying. Today, M&G is worth a mere £5bn — an appetising snack easily gobbled up by a vastly larger rival. After all, its shares trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of around 4.6 and an earnings yield of 20.5%.Lastly, M&G’s greatest attraction must be its delicious dividend yield of 6.2% a year, almost double the FTSE 100’s 3.2%. That’s why I’d happily buy these cheap shares today, ideally inside an ISA. Then I could enjoy years of tax-free dividends and future capital gains! Image source: Getty Images.

Rector Tampa, FL Rector Hopkinsville, KY Barbara High says: March 23, 2016 at 11:18 am I went to high school with Wes and played football with him. His energy, his enthusiasm and leadership was evident even then. Even at the times when his enthusiasm overwhelmed his intelligence, you couldn’t fault him as he was so intense and so sincere in all that he did. I know many of us who knew him when he was younger, knew then that we were better for the experience. I can only imagine the positive impact that he made on so many lives since.

He was a wonderful and inspirational spiritual leader and great with kids, even back then. He and Vivienne were such great role models for my husband and me, as we were newlyweds at the time. I always wondered where he ended up. Then one day in February 2016, my son called from Seattle, Washington to update us about his conservation job he had just started out there. He mentioned that the only person in his organization who was from anywhere near our home in Arlington, VA was a person near his age, early 20’s, named Michael Wubbenhorst. I thought to myself, there can’t be that many Wubbenhorsts. I wonder if he’s related to our old seminarian, Wes? I asked my son, Michael, to ask Michael Wubbenhorst if he knew a Wes. Michael called back the very next day to say that yes, in fact Michael Wubbenhorst is Wes’ son. Wow, what a small world! So around March, I was all excited to reach out to Wes and Vivienne and tell them of this wonderful coincidence that our two sons had been thrown together by fate or the divine for this conservation work out in Seattle. About that time, my Michael called me to tell me he had sad news from his friend Michael that his dad, Wes, had just died of cancer. Michael W. hadn’t had a chance to share with any of his new friends that his dad was sick, so my son didn’t know until Michael had to return home for the funeral. I was very saddened to hear this news and wish that I had gotten the chance to reconnect with him. He was one of the most memorable seminarians we had, whose gentle spirit, inclusive ministry, and enthusiasm for accessible worship (especially for children) still permeate our worship experience to this day. Rest in peace, my friend, and may God sustain your family with your wonderful memory during this difficult time. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR [Episcopal Diocese of Maryland] The Rev. Wes Wubbenhorst, an Episcopal priest, died March 15 after a year-long battle with lymphoma. He was 62.Wubbenhorst died at his home in Annapolis, Maryland. He was in the care of his wife Vivienne, his mother Arvilla and many other family and friends. A Requiem Eucharist is set for Saturday, March 19, at 1 p.m. at Cathedral of the Incarnation, Baltimore. (The service will be livestreamed on the internet. The video link will be available at Rev. Allen Spicer, chaplain to clergy and their families in the Diocese of Maryland, visited Wubbenhorst on the afternoon of his death. Those gathered sang hymns at his bedside. Wubbenhorst was unable to speak but as the words, “I will raise him up” from “I am the Bread of Life,” were sung, he raised both arms high. He was raised to new life only hours later.Wubbenhorst was the diocesan youth minister in Maryland for 10 years. He also served at St. Margaret’s, Annapolis, as well as parishes in the dioceses of Newark and Connecticut. His ministry with young people flourished when he was chaplain and assistant director of the Episcopal Camp and Conference Center at Ivoryton, Connecticut from 1990 to 1994. He also served on the support staff of the Episcopal Church Foundation in New York City after his ordination in 1989.His last call was to be interim rector at Christ Church, Port Republic, Maryland, described by many as “a match made in heaven. It was a time of joy and growth for both priest and people. They loved Wes through the chemotherapy treatments and were blessed by his joy and enthusiasm for life.”Wubbenhorst and his wife spent time in Honduras as Peace Corps volunteers after college. It was there he heard a voice calling him to the priesthood. For several summers Wubbenhorst took hundreds of young people from Maryland on mission trips to El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza, The Home of Love and Hope, orphanage in Tegucigalpa. Those trips changed many lives.“More than being one of the most effective leaders in youth ministry in the larger Church, my friend Wes Wubbenhorst was a joy-filled human being who had an infectious faith in Jesus,” said Bishop Eugene Taylor Sutton of Maryland. “Once when I asked a group of high schoolers what they wanted to do after graduation, I heard this from several of them: ‘I want to work in a ministry that focuses on youth in a diocese or a church – just like Wes!’ Those words put a lump in my throat, and a joy in my heart.”“I’m one of those youth who said I wanted to do what he did, and he made it so,” said Kate Riley. “I will forever be grateful for his gifts to the world, but mostly just that fact that I got to know him as a dear friend and father figure. He is one of a kind and now it is our ministry to carry on that joy for Jesus.” Kate succeeded Wubbenhorst as youth missioner a year ago. She called him “a man who could never be forgotten. He has been the inspiration for hundreds of people to seek a relationship with Jesus Christ and to serve in our church to bring the Kingdom of joyful noise to Earth!”Wubbenhorst had several ministries. He was passionate about working with Latino immigrants, helped develop workshops for prevention of domestic violence and led safe church trainings.Wubbenhorst wrote a last sermon that friends and family posted on Facebook six days before his death to raise money for El Hogar. “Honduras and its people were God’s way of communicating a plan, a path, and lifelong love to me,” he wrote. “Amazing trips, LOVE & HOPE shared in God’s name! Nothing is better than God’s Love. (WOW!)”Wubbenhorst was known for his whistling, his verbal clicks of the tongue and audible punctuation with words like, “ta-dah” or “Wow!”During the summer mission trip of 2009 there was a military coup in Honduras, recalled the Rt. Rev. John Rabb, retired bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Maryland. “Nervous parents called the (diocesan) center and it was not a problem to assure them that I would want no one other than Wes because Wes, for all of his creative energy (translated “loosey goosey”) had full control when the situation got difficult,” said Rabb. “It did not matter if it was discipline, health, safety or in this case a political crisis; Wes knew exactly what to do and did it. The youth mission trip returned and all were well and the parents, especially, saw how well cared for their youth were.”Wubbenhorst also had a heart for the poor in Baltimore. One day he showed up at the office with a handful of brown bag lunches. He had driven from his home in Annapolis but did not encounter the usual homeless men and women — many of whom he knew by name — along his route. He put the lunches in the refrigerator for the return trip.“Wes was a person of unique and extraordinary gifts who conveyed the deep love and joy of God to everyone he met: old and young, poor and rich, weak and strong,” said the Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool, bishop suffragan in the Diocese of Los Angeles. “He did this with his very being, which was light-hearted, quick to laugh, humble in nature and profound in faith. His special love for young people has effected thousands and I believe he has left a legacy of ‘joy and wonder in all God’s works’ that inspires us all into the future,” she said. Glasspool was rector at St. Margaret’s, Annapolis, when Wubbenhorst was associate rector.Wubbenhorst was also a doodler. His goodbye gift for each diocesan staff member was their own personal doodle of their name. On the reverse of each was a recipe for his infamous oatmeal cookies which he often brought to the office. (They didn’t last long). But he explained the doodle on the front with this: “As you may or may not know Jesus was an amazing doodle. He found that they were ways of sending JOY, LOVE, HEALING, and Blessings. So Naturally all doodles begin with God’s creation, YOU Yeah!!” [sic]He ended the recipe with, “p.s. This was Jesus’ favorite cookie.”center_img Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Collierville, TN Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Mary Thomasson Yuhas says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Albany, NY Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Submit a Press Release Rector Shreveport, LA Submit a Job Listing Featured Jobs & Calls Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI July 23, 2016 at 10:46 am Just now discovered that Wes , a long time friend had passed away…..My condolences to his wife Vivienne , another good friend ….Barbara High Posted Mar 17, 2016 Bill Brennan says: Rector Bath, NC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Press Release Service Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Associate Rector Columbus, GA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Washington, DC Director of Music Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ last_img read more

  • Little Christian Wade’s big carry knocks Jonny May out cold

    first_imgFriday Mar 30, 2018 Little Christian Wade’s big carry knocks Jonny May out cold Jonny May was knocked out cold by Christian Wade last weekend, as he fended with the ball carrying forearm or elbow, getting the best of a brutal collission. May, however, is expected to be okay for their next match against Bath.May was injured in the same minute that centre Manu Tuilagi suffered a pectoral injury. Nicholas Malouf came on as a replacement, and shortly afterwards he made that high and dangerous tackle on Wade. As a result, he was suspended for three weeks following a citing and disciplinary process. May had to leave the field after a lengthy treatment, but managed to walk off himself. His recovery is being closely monitored, ahead of their next match on April 7th. “Jonny got a bang on the head and it’s a straightforward H.I.A return to play protocol,” explained Leicester Tigers head coach Matt O’Connor. “He will continue on as per usual and, barring any hiccup through the protocols, he should be right for Bath.” Tuilagi’s injury caused concern for fans, but O’Connor is confident that it might be okay, and is patiently waiting for a better assessment. “There is no rush. The longer you wait, the better clarity you get from a scan perspective so we are quite optimistic. Our medics certainly think it is not serious. It is not the same pec he injured a couple of seasons ago, which is really positive. It should be a minor issue, hopefully.”This knockout wasn’t pleasant to see but some of you had mentioned it so here it is as a bit of a discussion point, regarding the ball carrying bump off and May’s tackling technique. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

There is something behind the cave that speaks of who I am, that form of an enclosed cube that seeks to be hidden from the world, while showing openings that exhibit a contradiction, perhaps I do not want to remain apart from the world, as a proof these narrow cracks show a characteristic from mankind, The longing of being known and loved.Save this picture!© César BéjarRecommended ProductsDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalThe land is located within the metropolitan area of Guadalajara, in one of many private condominiums delimited by large walls, as a result of increased insecurity in Mexico.

  • U Win Tin begins his 18th year in prison

    first_img to go further May 31, 2021 Find out more MyanmarAsia – Pacific May 26, 2021 Find out more MyanmarAsia – Pacific Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar News Organisation News On the eve of the 17th anniversary of the arrest of prominent journalist dissident U Win Tin, Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association are calling on Burmese Prime Minister, General Soe Win, to immediately release him.In protest at his continued detention – Win Tin is serving 20 years on a charge of “anti-government propaganda” – the two press freedom organisations are mounting a fax offensive on 4 July 2006, targeting major Burmese embassies throughout the world.An appeal for his release and scores of pages of petitions signed by more than 5,000 people will be faxed throughout the day. The two organisations are also calling on others to mark the day with peaceful demonstrations by faxing or phoning and calling for the journalist’s release.”The courage of U Win Tin in refusing to give way to the blackmail of the military authorities, has never faltered in his 17 years in prison. His stance in support of freedom of expression and democracy cannot allow us to forget the criminal attitude of the military junta, who is keeping in prison a sick and elderly man of 76,” the two organisations said.Since his arrest in Rangoon, on 4 July 1989, U Win Tin has been deprived of his fundamental rights, in particular those of receiving appropriate medical treatment and being allowed to write. According to the latest information, U Win Tin has to have treatment for heart and blood pressure problems and for an inflamed prostate.Although a doctor comes to his cell to given him a twice-monthly medical check-up, U Win Tin has to rely on help from his family who regularly bring him medicine and food. After 17 years in prison, his health has considerably weakened. He has suffered two heart attacks.Moreover it is now a year since the Burmese authorities announced, on 6 July 2005, that he was being released, but then failed to act on it. Under Burmese law, the journalist has been eligible for release for good behaviour since July 2005.Until almost a year ago and for the past six years he had been receiving visits from representatives of the International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC). But the Geneva-based organisation suspended such visits after members of the pro-government UDSA party insisted on being present at the meetings.Win Tin is allowed to receive a 20-25 minute visit from a family member twice a month. This visitor is allowed to bring medicine, food and magazines but a censorship bureau set up within the prison checks all written matter brought in to him.Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association urge sympathisers to go to to continue to sign the international petition for Win Tin’s release.Over 16 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist. More than two hundreds news staffs around the globe are thus sponsoring colleagues by regularly petitioning authorities for their release and by publicising their situations sothat their cases will not be forgotten.Currently, Win Tin is sponsored by more than 50 media in France, Spain, Canada, Sweeden and Belgium.

Pass such further and/or other order(s) as this Court deems fit and expedient in the facts and circumstances of the captioned case.Court’s DirectionHaving heard the counsel for both the sides and looking to the facts and circumstances of the case and also considering the fact that earlier the High Court had disposed of a petition of similar nature, i.e. W.P.(C) No.5661/2019 vide its order dated 28.11.2019, the Court directed the respondents to treat this petition as a representation and decide the grievances ventilated in this petition, as narrated in detail in this writ petition.According to a report by Press Trust of India (PTI), the Petitioner submitted before the Court that a representation was made to the Centre and Delhi government in September and the latter had responded by saying that the matter had been forwarded to Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot who also holds the Information and Technology portfolio.Thereafter, no information was received, it was submitted.Some of the mobile gaming apps, which allegedly facilitate online gambling, that have been referred to in the petition are — Adda52 Poker, PokerStars, Zynga Poker, Teen Patti Gold, Poker Rummy and Texas Hold ’em Poker.The petitioner had contended that these are games of chance and involve no skill and therefore, ought to be prohibited in accordance with the anti-gambling laws.However, the bench observed, “There is some amount of skill involved in every game.”Recently, the Gujarat High Court has observed that the present legal framework in reference to gambling should be regulated to include virtual/ online/ Cyberspace gambling.The Bench of Chief Justice Vikram Nath and Justice JB Pardiwala has directed the State Government to consider a PIL, seeking regulation of online gambling, as a representation, and do the needful in the “larger public interest”.”We direct the State of Gujarat to consider this writ application as a representation. If online games involve gambling and if they are being played in the State of Gujarat, then it is expected of the State to deal with the same appropriately as gaming is a subject matter of List II of the Schedule VII of the Constitution of India,” the Bench observed.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

  • Ten years on: A review of the first global conservation horizon scan

    first_imgOur first horizon scan, conducted in 2009, aimed to identify novel but poorly known issues with potentially significant effects on global conservation of biological diversity. Following completion of the tenth annual scan, we reviewed the 15 topics identified a decade ago and assessed their development in the scientific literature and news media. Five topics, including microplastic pollution, synthetic meat, and environmental applications of mobile-sensingtechnology, appeared to have had widespread salience and effects. The effects of six topics were moderate, three have not emerged, and the effects of one topic were low. The awareness of, and involvement in, these issues by 12conservation organisations has increased for most issues since 2009.last_img read more
