Stock market crash: 3 cheaper UK shares to buy in an ISA for the new bull market

first_img Royston Wild | Thursday, 4th February, 2021 | More on: CCH 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. Image source: Getty Images Stock market crash: 3 cheaper UK shares to buy in an ISA for the new bull market “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It’s been almost a year since the 2020 stock market crash kicked off. But Covid-19 continues to play havoc with investor nerves as new variants emerge and vaccine rollouts in Europe disappoint. An enormous number of UK shares continue to trade below their pre-crash levels as a consequence.I personally consider this to be a prime buying opportunity. Indeed, I’ve been busy buying UK shares following the crash to get what I see as five-star stocks at little cost. Take Coca-Cola HBC (LSE: CCH), for example. Revenues here were hit in 2020 as Covid-19 lockdowns caused sales from bars and restaurants to sink, and demand for its bottles and cans from people who are out and about unsurprisingly slipped. The prospect of a longer-than-expected public health emergency could prolong these pressures for the FTSE 100 firm too.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…But as a long-term investor I thought Coca-Cola’s share price fall was too good to miss. I bought the company at a 28% discount to what it was trading at just before the 2020 crash. I believe I can expect the share price to leap from these levels in the years ahead as broader consumer spending levels rise again. Coca-Cola’s strong record of product innovation and brand development also leads me to believe this UK share will recover strongly. Product launches in 2019 accounted for 4.2% of total volume growth that year.2 more cheap UK shares on my ISA radarAs I say, there are still many UK shares that are trading below their pre-crash levels. Here are a couple more I’m thinking of buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA in 2021.#1: QinetiQ GroupDefence giant QinetiQ Group is still trading much more cheaply than it was before last February. By my reckoning, it trades a full 20% cheaper than it was this time a year ago. It’s a descent that reflects investor fears that arms budgets could fall following the Covid-19 crisis. I’d still buy this UK share however as the long-term outlook for weapons spending remains robust.I also like QinetiQ as it’s a key supplier to the Ministry of Defence. Just last month it inked a £127m, five-year contract to supply engineering services for the Royal Air Force’s fleet of Typhoons. All this explains why City analysts currently think annual profits here can keep rising over the next three fiscal years at least. But as we know, that’s never guaranteed and profits could also fall.#2: Associated British FoodsFTSE 100 firm Associated British Foods has also endured a chunky share price fall during the last 12 months. It’s now trading 15% lower than it was on February 4 2020. I can understand why investors have felt compelled to sell. Its Primark shops face prolonged closures as the coronavirus tragedy rolls on and it has no online operations to soften the impact. Demand for its fashion might also suffer should broader consumer confidence remain weak.I still think ABF offers terrific long-term appeal, however. In particular I remain encouraged by the UK share’s dedication to international expansion, a programme I think should supercharge profits during the next decade at least. Primark now has around 400 stores spread across more than a dozen countries and its budget prices could prove appealing in a downturn.

Demings champions NATO and democracy in Europe

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Meets with officials from Denmark, Hungary, and Luxembourg on a mission to support NATO allies and defend democratic values From the office of Rep. Val Demings Rep. Val Demings (FL-10) has returned from a trip to Europe as part of a Congressional Delegation in support of America’s NATO alliance and democratic values. The Members visited Denmark, Hungary, and Luxembourg. “When the United States makes a promise, we have an obligation to keep our word,” said Demings. “NATO is one of the most successful defensive alliances in history, forming a shield against Russian aggression and helping to safeguard the freedoms which keep us safe. It is vital to our national security to maintain bonds of trust and mutual self-defense with our European allies.In Hungary, Prime Minister Orbán’s government retains the symbols of a democracy, but we know that no democratic society can exist without a free press and open and fair elections.It is our responsibility to learn from the past and the present, to re-forge our alliances, protect our values, and to avoid the dangers of nationalism and hatred. Any denial of basic human rights and dignity in any part of the world is wrong and we should never overlook or tolerate such action.In Luxembourg, we visited the American Military Cemetery to pay respect to the 5,000 Americans who paid the ultimate sacrifice to stop the murderous Nazi regime. We will continue to work with our allies to promote democracy around the world and build a better future than the previous generations were able to build for themselves.”BackgroundBeginning in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Members attended the Copenhagen Democracy Summit on the threats and challenges facing democracies in the twenty-first century. This was followed by a panel discussion with other members of Congress on the importance of defending democratic values. The delegation also met with key leaders attending the Summit.The delegation then traveled to Budapest, Hungary to meet with government officials, opposition leaders, and civil society activists. Serious concerns have been raised with the democratic backsliding taking place in Hungary, and the delegation raised these issues during their meetings.Finally, the delegation went to Luxembourg for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Parliamentary Assembly. The delegation then participated in working group meetings on security, economic issues, gender issues, human rights, and countering terrorism. The delegation laid a wreath at the American Luxembourg Military Cemetery, where more than 5,000 Americans who served during WWII were laid to rest.The other members of the Congressional Delegation were: House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD-05), Reps. Tom Cole (OK-04), Steve Cohen (TN-09), and Garret Graves (LA-06).center_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Algerians say: ‘The system’ has a new president, but he’s not ours

first_img“The system” is what Algerians call the shadowy, highly corrupt group of Army officers, high-ranking politicians and businesspeople running their country. In February the news hit that Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the then-current president who had had a disabling stroke in 2013, was going to run for a fifth term as president.Dec. 12 protest.Tens of thousands of Algerians took to the streets all over this vast country, the largest in Africa, to protest him and his regime. After a month or so of weekly protests following Friday prayers involving hundreds of thousands of people — men, women, youth, families and elders who remembered the war for independence from France — Bouteflika resigned. The interim government, basically set up by the army, called for an election in July. Nobody registered as a candidate, so it was called off in June. Weekly protests continued, even in the deadly heat of an Algerian summer, demanding “the system” be replaced by a fairer arrangement that didn’t just reward people at the top.Dec. 12 presidential electionThe interim government of Abdelkader Bensalah, who was speaker of the upper house, set Dec. 12 as the date for the next presidential election and undertook extensive political and organizational steps to prepare for it.All the candidates that were vetted by the electoral commission were close collaborators — ministers and others — with the Bouteflika regime. The Hirak, the loose coalition that coordinated the 42 massive weekly national demonstrations leading up to Dec. 12, called for a boycott of the election, since all the candidates were part of “the system.”The Dec. 12 demonstrations in Algiers were huge, and people stayed in the streets, even after the cops aggressively attacked protesters and singled out a few to beat and then arrest in front of French TV cameras. (There is a very large Algerian community in France.) There were photos of nearly empty polling places and lines of people waiting to stuff their ballots into a trash can.In the Kabylie, a historically rebellious area east of Algiers, where Amazigh (Berber) is the main language, protesters broke into polling stations and found that ballot boxes had already been stuffed. (Al Jazeera, Dec. 14) Algerian election officials, claiming turnout was close to 40 percent, declared Abdelmadjid Tebboune the winner in the first round with 58 percent of the votes cast.The Rally for Culture and Democracy, a major secular, center-left political party, estimated the turnout was 8 percent, which is consistent with the reports of ballot stuffing and sparse crowds at many polling stations. (tinyurl.com/s396s48)Police reaction, according to the Algerian League for the Defense of Human Rights, varied from region to region. In Algiers, it was aggressive and nasty but relatively restrained. French television and international press cameras were mainly located in Algeria’s capital.In Constantine, the largest city in eastern Algeria, the protest reportedly went off without major hitches. In the Kabylie, which has about 9 million people, there wasn’t much police presence, but a vicious attack, with cops firing rubber bullets, took place in Haïzer. (www.tsa-algerie.com)In Oran, the police made over 400 arrests in a “brutal fashion,” beating people with their clubs and liberally using tear gas, according to local newspaper Le Matin d’Algérie (Dec. 13).The Hirak was able to hold its weekly protests in a number of cities Dec. 13. It is not clear how this presidential election is going to affect the ongoing struggle in Algeria.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Death threats made against Radio France International correspondent

first_img to go further March 11, 2021 Find out more Death threats were made against Radio France International correspondent in Togo, Guy Mario Abalo, after he broadcast a report involving two former government members in a corruption and fraud case. Reporters Without Borders urged the authorities to do everything possible to protect him.”Messages left on Abalo’s answer phone the evening his report was broadcast (25 March), are very worrying,” said the international press freedom organisation. “They warned him that his reporting ‘will not go unpunished”, adding, “your life is in danger”. Some sources lead us to conclude that the calls came from young supporters of the former political leaders exposed by the journalist,” it said.”The authorities should do everything they can to protect him,” said the organisation.Abalo’s broadcast related to the report of an anti-corruption commission on a property project in connection linked to the holding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) in the capital Lomé in 2000.The project, Cité OAU 2000, was headed by Saibou Samarou, the then Secretary of State for the private sector and former housing minister Agboli Hope. The journalist reported that the two ministers apparently appropriated some buildings for themselves and may have accepted bribes from companies seeking building contracts on the Cité project.

A Road Sweeper and a Velocity Patcher.Pic: Don MoloneyNO ‘Gritter Thunberg’, ‘Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti-Slip Machiney’ or even a wilder card again, ‘Boaty McBoatface’ – they’re all gone! But Limerick City and County Council is, nonetheless, inviting entries in a competition to name its new winter maintenance vehicles.Ahead of snow forecast for this week, the local authority is today launching a public competition to name its five specialised vehicles critical to keeping our roads slip and pothole free, with winners set to claim a nice COVID reward for their efforts. The vehicles include three ‘velocity patchers’ used to repair potholes and two dedicated road gritters which are used to spread grit (rock salt), onto Limerick’s roads.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Day and night throughout the year, but particularly in the winter months, these vehicles and council workers ensure that the roads across Limerick are kept safe and open for traffic. And the local authority is now keen to send their drivers to work in vehicles with names that put a smile on their faces.The public is invited to submit entries via Limerick.ie before Sunday 21 February 2021 or on Limerick City and County Council’s social media platforms – Limerick.ie Facebook, Limerick.ie Twitter, Limerick.ie Instagram, Limerick City and County Council Twitter, and Limerick City and County Council LinkedIn.A shortlist of names will then be shared on Limerick City and County Council’s Twitter account @LimerickCouncil where the public will cast its vote to choose the names for each vehicle.Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Collins said: “This competition will be a great bit of fun and God knows we could do with it now. We’re expecting the weird, wacky and wonderful by way of entries.  The idea of one of our employees driving ‘Gritney Spears’ or ‘Brad Gritt’ to work does put a smile on the face so we are looking for the public to let the creative juices flow on this.”“We have over 4,000 km of roads in Limerick that are maintained by the council. I think we are particularly cognisant of the work they do at this time of year as we see those amber lights flashing as they grit roads during sub-zero temperatures, often right into the small hours. So, it’s important that we maintain and update our fleet and this investment by Limerick City and County Council is in keeping with that. And it’s also important if we can put a smile on their faces as they get behind the wheel daily.”Laura Ryan, Head of Marketing and Communications at Limerick City and County Council added: “Limerick is known for its creativity, its grit – excuse the pun – and we are testing that with this fun competition! We’ve seen internationally what such naming competitions throw up names from Usain Salt to Spready Mercury but we’re just going to embrace it and let it run. With a lot of children remote learning at the moment and snow forecast for the week, they may be particularly interested in getting creative to enter this competition and winning a great prize!”“The five winners will each win a €100 Limerick restaurant voucher of their choice to support the hospitality industry when it opens back up. We’re looking forward to getting a shortlist together that the public can vote on and most importantly, let people have a bit of craic during lockdown.” Email Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live center_img Previous article“It’s like someone handed in a purse to gardai and they waited for someone to come and claim it” — Family of ‘missing’ Denis Walsh expresses disappointment over 25-year gap in identifying remainsNext articleProposed €400million investment “dependent” on Limerick ‘Regeneration Road’ going ahead Sarah Carrhttp://www.limerickpost.ie LimerickNews#ReadySpreadyGo!

One person dead after small plane clips power lines, crashes

first_imgAlan BirmaherBy MINA KAJI and AMANDA MAILE, ABC News(MIRAMAR, Fla.) — Alan Birmaher was driving to a friend’s house in Miramar, Florida, Tuesday morning when out of the corner of his eye he saw a small plane that was flying so low that he said he could see the pilot’s face.Seconds later he watched as the Piper PA-34 clipped power lines, caught on fire and crashed. “It looked like he was trying to land on the road,” Birmaher said.One person from the plane was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities confirmed, and the other was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.A third person on the ground was injured by debris from the crash, but was treated and released at the scene.The pilot told air traffic controllers that he was attempting to return to the airport when the aircraft went down, according to a preliminary statement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the FAA are investigating the crash.ABC affiliate WPLG-TV reported that the plane was registered to the Wayman Aviation Flight School and the student pilot who died had almost completed his training.“The flight training is all about emergency operations,” Eddy Luy, vice president of Wayman Aviation Academy, told WPLG. “It’s about what happens in case of this, in case of that, and they seemed to have followed those procedures just fine, but the timing was not right for them.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
