Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100 hasn’t done well. The index is lower than where it was five years ago. It’s also down considerably year-to-date, too. While its performance has been pretty disappointing, I believe there is still value in the Footsie given the quality of its components.With that in mind, here are two events that I think could help boost sentiment and possibly send the index higher. 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 resolution of Covid-19If the Covid-19 outbreak helped send the FTSE 100 lower, I think the successful resolution of Covid-19 could help send Footsie prices higher. With a successful resolution, economies around the world will return closer to normal and many people will be more confident about the future. If enough investors feel more confident about the future, the market could potentially give the FTSE 100 a higher valuation in my opinion. In terms of how the world might achieve a resolution, most scientists think the world would need a safe and effective vaccine. In terms of vaccine news, several companies are pretty close. For example, both Moderna and Pfizer have vaccine candidates in late-stage trials. Given the data over potential vaccines so far, the experts are pretty optimistic. Operation Warp Speed’s chief adviser, Moncef Slaoui, recently said, “It’s not a certainty, but the plan — and I feel pretty confident — should make it such that by June, everybody could have been immunized in the U.S.“.If the world does a better than expected job in terms of vaccine efficacy, manufacturing, and distribution, I think there’s a chance that the world can return to ‘business as usual’ faster than expected and that could be good news for the stock market too.Faster than expected global economic growthAnother factor that I believe could help boost the FTSE 100 is potentially faster than expected global economic growth. Given all the fiscal and monetary stimulus that governments have spent, there is a chance that the world grows faster than expectations. In such a case, I think the FTSE 100 could go higher because many of the index’s components are economically sensitive. In the energy sector, FTSE 100 stocks such as BP or Royal Dutch Shell are two examples in my view. If economic activity increases considerably faster than expected, I think demand for oil could also rise along with it and potentially help oil prices. Higher oil prices would likely mean more cash flow for oil giants, all else being equal. Other sectors could benefit too. In the consumer sector, faster economic growth could benefit consumer staples such as Unilever through more discretionary consumer spending power. In the financial sector, a stronger economy could mean more loan demand and potentially lower defaults, which could be good news for global banking giants like HSBC or Standard Chartered.  Enter Your Email Address I think these 2 events could send the FTSE 100 higher See all posts by Jay Yaolast_img read more

Here’s how I’d invest in UK shares in a Stocks & Shares ISA to get rich

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! See all posts by Royston Wild Here’s how I’d invest in UK shares in a Stocks & Shares ISA to get rich Investor confidence continues to tiptoe higher as hopes of a Covid-19 breakthough rise. The FTSE 100 is edging back towards last week’s five-month peaks in Monday business. Many commentators are suggesting that a Santa Rally could be upon us in a much-needed boost for UK share investor sentiment heading into 2021.Testing data surrounding a number of Covid-19 vaccines has been pretty solid in recent days. AstraZeneca joined the party on Monday by announcing that its own concoction formulated with Oxford University had yielded promising results.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…Careful now!I believe that UK share investors are quite right to be buoyed by the news. But they shouldn’t go overboard concerning Covid-19 vaccine development. There’s still much lab work to be done before any of these formulas can be considered a silver bullet. And, the British economy still faces colossal obstacles that could derail a dividend recovery.Data from Janus Henderson illustrates how severely dividends from UK shares have continued to fall versus the rest of the world. The outlook for a great many Britain-focussed companies looks less than assured, following fresh economic data released today. The profits pictures and balance sheets of a great many UK shares remain less than encouraging.The latest IHS Markit/CIPS UK Composite Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) came in at 47.2 for November. It’s the worst rating since June and shows the British economy moving back into contraction. Covid-19’s not the only crisis that could batter dividends from UK shares in 2021 either. Severe Brexit disruption when the transition period that ends on 1 January could also deal a heavy blow to short-term shareholder returns.Getting rich with UK sharesI’m not concerned by the threat of a painful downturn in the British economy, though. For one, the shares portfolio I built inside my Stocks and Shares ISA has a broad global focus. Secondly, I buy UK shares with a view to holding them for the long term. Over a number of years the impact of economic downturns on total shareholder returns tends to be minimised. Those than hold their stocks for a decade or more still tend to enjoy great returns (of at least 8% on average a year, data shows).Besides, there are plenty of UK shares with high exposure to the domestic economy that should keep paying big dividends. Telecoms operators and utilities providers are great buys in this regard, for example, as our need to remain connected and our requirement for running water and electricity remains constant during economic upturns and downturns.The same exceptional defensive qualities also makes food retailers, general insurance providers, drugs makers and drinks manufacturers great buys for these tough economic times. But one doesn’t have to go ultra-defensive in these troubled times. Cyclical UK shares like those involved in e-commerce, cloud computing, petcare, and video games manufacturing should also thrive in the near term. I’ve bought shares in logistics specialist Clipper Logistics to ride the online shopping phenomenon, for example. And there are many other high-quality, cyclical UK shares like this that are on my watchlist.

Community/union power defends fired health care workers

first_imgBoston — Over 100 workers and protesters rallied outside the Whittier Street Health Center in Roxbury, Mass., on June 15 to loudly reject the abrupt firing of 20 employee activists there. Hundreds more clamored on social media, spreading news about the firings that unleashed a torrent of anger in the community and among health care workers throughout the city.By June 17, the outcry reached such a fever pitch that Boston Mayor Marty Walsh had to pressure the health center’s management to publicly commit to a reversal of the firings of staff. On June 18, however, fired workers who returned to the health center to attend an all-staff meeting were barred from the premises by threats of arrest issued by Whittier’s human resources director.Whittier Street Health Center is a community health facility serving mostly low-income patients from Boston’s Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan and Dorchester neighborhoods. Many employees who were inside the center on June 15 left work to join protesters outside.The 20 fired employees have been active in an organizing drive for the center’s 75 health care workers — including nurses, medical assistants, doctors, mid-level providers and behavioral health workers — to be represented by Service Employees Local 1199. The firings came just five days before a slated vote for union representation on June 20.Whittier’s Board of Directors, CEO and hired “union avoidance” experts targeted the organizing drive with an aggressive union-busting scheme in which workers had their badges unexpectedly deactivated on June 14 during patient exams and appointments. Patients were left waiting in exam rooms as 20 of the most vocally pro-union employees were directed to leave the building.In a Monday morning statement issued June 18, management claimed the abrupt firings had been “unfortunate steps to stabilize Whittier Street’s financial future,” necessitated by “shrinking funding opportunities,” and that the equally abrupt reversal was arranged thanks to the “Mayor’s leadership and guidance … providing a pathway forward that would put Whittier on a stable financial footing for now.” But this media campaign was just a slick, face-saving maneuver. As of this writing, not one of the workers has been allowed to return to their jobs or see their patients.The health care bosses have yet to set a reinstatement date for the fired workers. This stalling is just another attempt to rattle workers who have fought hard to unionize their workplace in order to win job security, maintain community control at Whittier and advocate for improved patient care. Management hopes workers will be intimidated into voting down the union on election day, or will at least stay home.But no amount of back-peddling or public relations spin can hide the truth, which was patently clear to every front-line health worker in Boston: These firings were 100 percent based on the growing fear among health care industry corporate elites of the power of organized health care workers. The reversal of the firings, too, came as both politicians and health center upper management felt the fiery breath of an overnight union-community mobilization — not because of some benevolent act inspired by mayoral “leadership.”Whittier employees, union organizers and community members know all too well that it is up to the power of the people to make sure that the fired workers truly get their jobs back and that the union election proceeds unimpeded. A coalition with broad community support has set an election-day rally to uplift precisely this crucial worker solidarity and support for a pro-union vote, which will be necessary to win back these jobs.Organizers and supporters of the June 15 and June 20 rallies include SEIU Local 1199 members, SEIU Local 32BJ members, the Greater Boston Labor Council, the Massachusetts Poor People’s Campaign, Jobs with Justice, City Life/Vida Urbana, numerous union and community activists, and others.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

US – #WeeklyAddress: March 18 – 24: US State Department bars press corps from Pompeo briefing

first_img April 28, 2021 Find out more March 25, 2019 US – #WeeklyAddress: March 18 – 24: US State Department bars press corps from Pompeo briefing Chelsea Manning’s health deteriorates in jail BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI / AFP News June 3, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas A juvenile court judge in Cook County, Illinois, has barred news organizations from releasing any information that could identify the children and families involved in a child welfare case Propublica Illinois was investigating. Patricia Martin, the judge presiding over the case, issued the rare order on March 14 and blocked media from all court proceedings. The motion came after Bruce Boyer, an attorney representing the families in the case, filed a motion in order to protect his clients’ privacy.  ProPublica’s attorney, Gabriel Fuentes, said the restraint symbolizes a “constitutional injury” to the news organization. ProPublica Illinois will attend a hearing on April 5 to argue why it should be allowed to publish. The United States ranks 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. US State Department bars press corps from Pompeo briefingThe State Department allowed only faith-based media to report on a March 18 press call with Pompeo, excluding the mainstream press and wire services. Ahead of Secretary Pompeo’s trip to the Middle East, the briefing call was planned to discuss international religious freedom. Only one member of the State Department’s press corps was invited to join the call, only to be uninvited after attempting to RSVP. The State Department did not release the list of press attendees or publish a transcript of the briefing as it typically would. John Kirby, former State Department spokesperson told CNN, “It’s perfectly fine to ensure faith-based media have a seat at such a table. But it’s PR malpractice to cut off access to the broader press corps. I wish I could say I expected more from this crowd.” For more on this incident, read RSF’s publication on the subject: “US – State Department bars press corps from Pompeo briefing.” Government whistleblower Chelsea Manning has been subjected to solitary confinement since arriving in a Virginia jail earlier this month, according to a March 23 press release published by her support committee, “Chelsea Resists.” The committee says Manning is kept in her cell for up to 22 hours a day with limited access to other prisoners and none to books or other reading materials, which they argue constitutes solitary confinement. A jail official disputes these allegations. Manning has been detained since March 8, when a federal judge in the US District Court ordered the former US army intelligence analyst into custody for refusing to testify as part of an investigation into WikiLeaks, the website to which Manning shared information exposing the crimes and brutalities committed by the US military during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. She will remain in detention until agreeing to testify before a grand jury or until the grand jury no longer operates. News President Donald Trump continued his rhetorical attacks on the press this week, and administration aides say he and his team have plans to double-down on those attacks in light of the now-complete Mueller report into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The president tweeted the phrases “Fake News” and “Fake News Media” three times over the past week, directing his oft-used diatribes at CNN and MSNBC. In a March 19 tweet, President Trump again declared “Fake News” the “absolute Enemy of the People” and accused the media of being dishonest and corrupt. On March 18, the president claimed the “Fake News Media” have been “working overtime” to blame him for the previous week’s white supremacist terrorist attack on a mosque in New Zealand. In a press pool spray on March 20, President Trump defended his use of Twitter as his only way “to get honesty out,” and at various points, called the media “dishonest,” “fake,” and “corrupt.” Following the completion of the Mueller report, Trump aides told reporters that President Trump plans to “slam and shame the media.” On March 24, prominent Fox News anchor and long-standing Trump supporter Sean Hannity also called out specific media outlets on Twitter.

He has since deleted his Twitter account. The following day, Laura Ingraham of Fox News blasted New York University and Lavin during her show, “The Ingraham Angle,” calling Lavin a “little journo-terrorist.” Lavin shared a clip from Ingraham’s show on Twitter, writing: “This is insane. And irresponsible. It is incitement.” Lavin focuses her research and writing on white supremacy and far-right extremism and is set to teach “Reporting on the Far Right” at NYU’s Journalism School in the fall. “The Fox stuff actually is dangerous, and results in death threats, sometimes including my family,” Duca told The Daily Beast over the weekend.

Uptick as 3 New COVID-19 Infections Reported in Pasadena

first_imgCommunity News Uptick as 3 New COVID-19 Infections Reported in Pasadena By BRIAN DAY Published on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 | 3:20 pm Pasadena public health officials reported three new detected COVID-19 infections and no new deaths on Tuesday, but cautioned that testing results may still not be keeping up with reality due to recent heatwaves, wildfires, smoky conditions, and resulting test center closures.Pasadena had recorded 2,479 novel coronavirus infections and 121 deaths since the start of the pandemic.And while the rate of new cases at the local, county, and state levels have all appeared relatively low on paper since the Labor Day weekend, authorities expressed concern that the testing framework simply hasn’t caught up.“We still think with everything that’s going on, there’s still staggered testing,” Pasadena city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said. Several testing sites throughout Los Angeles County have seen closures recently due to smoke and unhealthy air conditions.Pasadena had averaged 5.1 new infections per day over the prior week, according to city data.Huntington Hospital reported treating 33 COVID patients on Tuesday. Four tests were pending.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported 474 new COVID-19 infections and 47 additional fatalities.“The lower number of new cases, in part, reflect reduced testing due to wildfire smoke and recent extreme weather,” the agency said in a written statement.Tuesday’s report raised L.A. County’s totals to 255,049 infections and 6,273 deaths.The virus continues to keep its strongest foothold among younger age groups.“Nearly 70 percent of all cases have occurred in people under the age of 50,” the county statement said.Those who have become exposed to large groups were urged to get tested, even if they feel fine.“It is important to know if you are positive because you can transmit the virus without knowing you are infected,” the statement said. “Younger people could unknowingly spread the disease to older and more vulnerable people with underlying health conditions who can suffer more severe illness.”But the young, too, can suffer severe effects or even death as a result of COVID-19 infection, said L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer.“Tragically, we are reporting another death of a person who was under 29 years old,” she said. “Nearly 450 COVID-19 deaths have occurred among individuals under the age of 50 years old. This is why it is important for everyone, including younger residents, to take precautions every time they leave their homes and to get tested if they have been exposed to the virus.”County health officials said 772 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized on Tuesday, with 33 percent of them in intensive care units.“The downward trend in hospitalizations continues,” according to the county statement.Statewide, authorities reported 2,235 new COVID-19 cases and 66 new deaths on Tuesday, raising the state’s totals to 760,013 infections and 14,451 fatalities since the start of the pandemic.The state’s average positivity rate over the past week was 3.3 percent, and the 14-day average was 3.6 percent, the California Department of Public Health said in a written statement.As of Tuesday, L.A. County accounted for 34 percent of California’s COVID-19 infections and 43 percent of the state’s deaths. 13 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News Subscribe HerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

She has worked for various newspapers, magazines, and publications across the nation, including The Dallas Morning News and Addison Magazine. She has also worked with both the Five Star Institute and REO Red Book, as well as various other mortgage industry clients on content strategy, blogging, marketing, and more. Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The beginning of the year was a record-setting time for home prices. According to the latest S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price NSA Index released Tuesday, home prices were at a 31-month high in January 2017, up 5.9 percent year-over-year. Over the month, they were up 5.7 percent.The Home Price NSA Index, which covers all nine U.S. Census Divisions, also showed annual increases on the 10-City Composite measurement, with a 5.1 percent jump, and the 20-City Composite, which showed a 5.7 percent uptick. The cities to see the highest home price increase annually were Seattle (11.3 percent), Portland (9.7 percent), and Denver (9.2 percent). According to David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Down Jones Indices, the uptick in home prices shouldn’t sound off alarm bells just yet.“Housing and home prices continue on a generally positive upward trend,” Blitzer said. “The recent action by the Federal Reserve raising the target for the Fed funds rate by a quarter percentage point is expected to add less than a quarter percentage point to mortgage rates in the near future. Given the market’s current strength and the economy, the small increase in interest rates isn’t expected to dampen home buying. If we see three or four additional increases this year, rising mortgage rates could become concern.But even with additional rate hikes, Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American Financial Corporation, said there shouldn’t be a problem.“The 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage is currently a little over 4 percent, well below the historical long-run average of approximately 6.5 percent since 1990,” Fleming said. Even if rates reached as high as 4.75 percent, he said, housing should remain affordable for many middle-income buyers.“Even at the higher mortgage rate, for the majority of markets a median income can purchase more than the median priced house,” Fleming said. “Why is this? The house buying power that borrowers have, even with rates below five percent, still remains historically strong. It would take a significantly higher mortgage rate to erode the real, house-buying power adjusted, price of housing, even as nominally house prices grow at their current pace.”Blitzer agreed that we shouldn’t read too much into today’s rising home prices. What can be extrapolated is that spring will see a seller’s market take hold, he said.“It is clear that indefinite nominal price appreciation is unsustainable,” Blitzer said. “That lesson was learned a decade ago.
