Best shares to buy: I’d only pick 1 of last week’s FTSE 100 top performers

first_img 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Almost a fortnight into 2020 and the FTSE 100 index has got off to a pretty good start to the year. Since the stock market opened on Monday, 4 January, the Footsie has added around 290 points, for an early gain of 4.5%. But which blue-chip shares have got off to a flying start? Let’s find out which were the ‘best’ shares to buy a week ago from the FTSE 100.FTSE 100: top performersFor the record, these are the six best-performing FTSE 100 shares over the past week: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…BP +11.9%Standard Chartered +9.7%HSBC Holdings plc +9.0%Glencore +8.8%Hargreaves Lansdown +8.4%Barclays +7.7%Looking at this list of the best shares to buy a week ago, there’s one clear theme. Three of the six — Standard Chartered, HSBC and Barclays — are banks. Clearly, with Covid-19 vaccines being rolled out in 2021, investors are expecting an economic rebound after lockdowns are relaxed. With strong economic growth expected in the second half of the year, it makes sense to buy economically sensitive shares and cyclical stocks. When consumers start spending again and company earnings rise, bad debts and loan losses should ease off. This would be good news for beaten-down banks, whose shares took a battering in 2020. But my best share to buy from this list isn’t a bank, so let’s move on.Which would be my #1 share to buy?At #4 on my list is Anglo-Swiss commodity trader and miner Glencore. The group produces and markets over 60 commodities in over 35 countries, including metals, coal, oil and gas. However, Glencore had a difficult 2020, cancelling its dividend as net debt soared close to $20bn. Although the price of copper — Glencore’s core commodity — has soared since March, and Glencore’s dividend is set to return this year, I’d rate its shares as a hold right now.Hargreaves Lansdown is the UK’s leading savings and investment platform. Founded 40 years ago, HL now has over 1.44 million clients. This includes me, as I rate HL’s customer service among the best I’ve ever received. With asset prices soaring in H2/2020, HL’s assets under management now exceed £100b.n But its shares trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of around 25 and a dividend yield of 2.3%. Although I love HL, these fundamentals mean it’s not one of my best shares to buy.BP is my pick of the cropFor me, the best risk/reward ratio among these six winners comes from oil & gas supermajor BP. With the Brent Crude oil price leaping above $56 today (from a low below $16 last April!), I see scope for a continued recovery in the BP share price. At its 2020 low on 28 October, the BP share price had collapsed to close at 188.52p. Since then, BP shares have surged and currently trade around 303.9p, valuing the business at £61.4bn. That’s still down almost two-fifths (38.9%) over the past 12 months, leaving plenty of room for improvement. With an attractive dividend yield of 5.1% a year and still £2 cheaper than a year ago, BP is my best share to buy from these six FTSE 100 candidates for a big bounce-back in 2021!

Vermont church sees opportunity during pandemic to step up homelessness…

first_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York The Rev. Earl Kooperkamp is rector of Church of the Good Shepherd in Barre, Vermont. Photo: Diocese of Vermont[Diocese of Vermont] With the pandemic came an opportunity.The Rev. Earl Kooperkamp and the people of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Barre, Vermont, had been working to help homeless people in Washington County for more than a decade, serving them a hot breakfast two mornings a week and working with ecumenical partners to help find them stable places to live.Their progress had been such that in the last four years, the church and its partners had begun to believe that they might soon be able to find housing for almost everyone.“There are a lot of homeless people, but we know who they are,” Kooperkamp said. “It’s an identifiable number. So we started working on getting people into more permanent housing.”Then in early March, the COVID-19 pandemic hit the region. The Good Samaritan Haven, the area’s principal shelter, had to close its doors and find new shelter for 38 clients almost immediately. In addition, people who had been couch surfing needed to find new accommodations, and the hearty few living on the streets had to move indoors because warming facilities had to be closed.Good Shepherd and the congregations of the Barre Interfaith Group were in the thick of what happened next.“We surfaced the idea: Can the state get a block of hotel rooms?” Kooperkamp said. “The state agreed. Also the hotels were emptied out. The hotel owners were like, ‘You want to rent out our rooms for a while? Please!’”Most of the Good Samaritan guests moved to the shut-down Econolodge in Montpelier. Others went to The Hilltop in Berlin, or the Pierre and the Budget Inn in Barre. The move brought significant challenges, such as providing three meals a day for people who could no longer follow their old routines. But it also brought an opportunity.“We said, ‘Now we’ve got a month when people will be in hotels,’” Kooperkamp said. “Can we get people to fill out apartment applications, use the $1,200 [from the CARES Act] for security deposit, and get people into apartments? If so, we’ve got the opportunity maybe not to end homelessness completely, but to clear out the Good Samaritan shelter.”That work is under way, and the success of the endeavor won’t be clear for at least several months, but Kooperkamp and the people of Good Shepherd believe it is a hopeful turn in a journey that began 10 years ago.In 2010, Good Shepherd and other congregations in Barre offered their church buildings as warming shelters for people without homes, because clients of Good Samaritan were required to leave the facility by 7 a.m. “One thing leads to another,” Kooperkamp said, “and pretty soon you are serving a full breakfast.” Which was just what Good Shepherd did, two mornings a week.“Our church happens to be situated between a couple of public housing building for elderly and disabled people, and a lot of people with mental illness end up there too,” said Beth Mueller, a parishioner who has worked with homeless people for more than 40 years. “We were perfectly happy to have folks come over.“I think people [in the parish] felt very good that we had moved beyond just going to church for worship, and that we are doing something that actually does impact people’s lives. It was kind of our little baby.”The parish’s good work caught the eye of Bishop Shannon MacVean-Brown. “I am impressed by Good Shepherd’s responsiveness to the community’s needs,” the bishop said. “They have kept their hearts open to the needs of the community. They would never have had this opportunity otherwise. The pandemic seems to have increased their determination to address a long-standing issue, and for that I am grateful. This gives me hope for the future of the church and our communities of which we are a part.”There is more to ending homelessness than signing leases, and the people of Good Shepherd know that. Many of those without permanent shelter in Washington County are struggling not simply with homelessness, but with substance abuse and unaddressed mental health issues, especially family trauma, Kooperkamp said. “Those are the biggest leading factors. Plus, quite frankly, the unrelenting rural poverty and rural isolation.”Once housing is found for people currently living in the shelter, the work of accompaniment remains to be done. “It takes somebody who is willing to invest the time, and not just say, ‘OK, we’re done. Glad you got your apartment. Hope it all works out OK,’” Mueller said. “People still need counseling, rides to the grocery store, help finding furniture.”Managing those tasks may determine whether most of the homeless people in Washington County are able to maintain a permanent place to live. In the meantime, Kooperkamp said, he is glad the parish is trying to make the world that will emerge on the far side of the pandemic fairer than the world left behind.“As we are talking about coming through some of this and knowing there is going to be a new normal, can that new normal mean more than wearing masks and social distancing?” he asks. “Can it mean we can be in this together and, even though socially distant, find ways that some of the most vulnerable members of our community could be taken care of as well?” The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Youth Minister Lorton, VA Vermont church sees opportunity during pandemic to step up homelessness outreach Submit an Event Listing Posted May 15, 2020 Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Collierville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Associate Rector Columbus, GA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Tags Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Featured Events TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Press Release Service Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Albany, NY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET COVID-19 Featured Jobs & Calls Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Bath, NC Rector Belleville, IL This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Smithfield, NC Submit a Job Listing Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Martinsville, VA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Submit a Press Release Rector Shreveport, LA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Pittsburgh, PA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Director of Music Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Hopkinsville, KY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Tampa, FL Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJlast_img read more

Bath hold on against Edinburgh at the Rec

first_imgTuesday Dec 15, 2009 Bath hold on against Edinburgh at the Rec Bath picked up their first pool win of their Heineken Cup campaign as they beat Edinburgh 16-9 after a nailbiting finish at the Recreation Ground.They still have a small chance of qualifying for the quarter finals after they scored two tries through hooker Peter Dixon and wing Michael Stephenson. Fijian flyhalf Nicky Little kicked two penalties, while Chris Paterson kicked three for Edinburgh.The return match will be in Scotland next weekend, and Steve Meehans Bath side will know that they have the slimmest of chances and need to make that count.“It gives us a chance, a sniff,” he said. “It’s great to be travelling to Edinburgh at the end of this week with an opportunity. Conditions being fine, you’d expect another entertaining game.“We made a terrific start. There was great intent from the guys and we want to see more of that. The win is very important from the squad’s point of view especially as we have a number of players unavailable.“It’s terrific to see the effort transferred from the training field to the pitch. But it’s very important that it is maintained.”Man of the Match Luke Watson was impressive for his new club, and naturally delighted with the win. “The morale has been great since I got here. It’s very much about the team, not the individual.“Watching the games from South Africa, I was feeling very frustrated for the boys. There’s a great team spirit and unity, people pulling hard for the Bath badge.”The match ended with Edinburgh pushing hard at the line for phase after phase before the ball was eventually turned over, allowing Bath to kick it out.Bizarrely, skipper Michael Claassens threw the ball directly into touch, conceding yet another penalty under the posts. Edinburgh werent able to take advantage and snatch the draw though, and game ended with Bath breathing a sigh of relief.

Release Yuvette Henderson’s autopsy report

first_imgFamily and community supporters seeking justice for Yuvette Henderson converged on the Emeryville, Calif., City Council on Sept. 1, demanding that the council call on the Alameda County Coroner to release Henderson’s autopsy report. The action was organized by the Anti Police-Terror Project.Cat BrooksAt least 30 people spoke during the council’s public comment period, each demanding the release of the report and the demilitarization of Emeryville’s police department, including the removal of AR-15 rifles and other assault weapons from their arsenal. In a door-knocking event the previous weekend, members of “Showing Up for Racial Justice” launched a petition campaign that received overwhelming support from Emeryville residents.Henderson, a Black woman, mother of four and grandmother, was killed in Oakland, Calif., on Feb. 3 by Emeryville police, who used weapons including an AR-15. An employee at the Emeryville Home Depot had accused her of shoplifting. Henderson had sustained a head injury from a Home Depot Security guard and requested an ambulance. When police came instead, she wound up fleeing to Hollis Street, just inside Oakland city limits, where she was shot and killed.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

India: Prominent woman journalist gunned down in Bangalore

first_img RSF_en Follow the news on India IndiaAsia – Pacific Religious intolerance Organized crimeWomenJudicial harassmentViolenceFreedom of expression to go further Organisation News News Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reporting The Indian media have been in mourning since gunmen on a motorcycle shot Gauri Lankesh, 55, as she opened the door to her home on the night of 5 September. She was killed by at least two shots to the chest and one to the head, the Press Trust of India news agency reported.The police have not said how many gunmen they think were involved, but they currently estimate that she sustained seven gunshot injuries.“We firmly condemn this terrible murder, which has deprived the media of a tough and determined champion and has deprived India of a voice that was fundamental for the country’s democratic life,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“We take note of the determination of the local authorities to investigate this murder and we encourage them not to neglect the possibility of a political link. Gauri Lankesh was on several occasions the target of the ruling Hindu nationalists and their supporters, because she categorically refused to submit to the self-censorship that is eating away at India’s media.”The editor of Lankesh Patrike, a tabloid founded in 1980 by her father, P. Lankesh, she was well known for her defence of women and her outspoken criticism of the caste system, conservatism and Hindu nationalists.She was the target of two libel suits by members of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, India’s leading Hindu nationalist party. But she never bowed to judicial pressure and her colleagues described her as courageous and forthright journalist.The three-year-old Modi administration has been trying to banish all “anti-nationalist” discourse from the Indian press. Journalists who refuse to censor themselves are the targets of defamation suits or are prosecuted under section 124A of the penal code, under which “sedition” is punishable by life imprisonment.Karun Misra of the Jansandesh Times and Ranjan Rajdev of the Hindustan Daily were both killed by gunmen on motorcycles in 2016 after covering sensitive stories such as illegal mining and judicial proceedings against a former parliamentarian.Five journalists were killed in connection with their work in 2015. They include Jagendra Singh, who died from the severe burn injuries he sustained during a search of his home that police carried out in the presence of a government official.India is ranked 136th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has issued notice to the University Grants Commission. Filed by Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU), the petition claims that the UGC (Conferment of Autonomous Status upon Colleges and Measures for Maintenance of Standards in Autonomous Colleges) Regulations, 2018 (hereinafter referred to as 2018 Regulations) go against the objectives of the parent Act, which is the UGC Act. The Petitioner has called the said Regulations ‘unlawful’ and ‘arbitrary’ by arguing that as per the Act of 1956, UGC only empowered to make rules and regulations with respect to governance of Universities, and not individual colleges and institutes. The said Regulations, it is argued, will reduce the role of the Universities to a mere ‘paper approver’ in the process of supervising the affiliated institutions. While arguing that the 2018 Regulations go beyond the scope and objectives of the UGC Act, the Petitioner submits that the UGC has not provided any reason whatsoever to create a separate regulation for autonomy whilst there is an existing substantive provision in the Parent Act for granting autonomy to colleges/ institutions by UGC, i.e. Section 3 of the Parent Act. The petition states that: ‘Impugned Regulations strip the Petitioner University of all its powers and functions with respect to administration of colleges/institutions affiliated to it and render it to be a mere rubber stamp as the grant of autonomous status would render several provisions of GGSIPU Act otiose and meaningless.’ It is further argued that the said Regulations have been promulgated by misinterpreting the residual powers enshrined under section 12(j) of the parent Act. It is contended: ‘UGC has also relied upon Section 12(j) of the Parent Act for the promulgation of the Impugned Regulations, which is merely a residuary provision and reliance by UGC on the same to promulgate the UGC Regulations is unfounded, as it is trite that the usage of residuary powers must be limited to the issues, topics and fields covered in an Act alone and not be used to foray into a completely new field of regulation and oversight.’ The court will next take up the matter on July 27.
