Image source: BAE Systems I think the BAE Systems (LSE: BA) share price is one of the top five investments in the FTSE 100. Today, I’m going to explain why.Defensive defenceEthical considerations aside, the business of selling weapons to countries around the world is an incredibly defensive one. Defence contracts between governments and defence contractors are usually multi-year deals. In many cases, these agreements extend into hundreds of millions, or billions, of pounds.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…What’s more, because the defence industry is highly regulated and controlled, a handful of companies effectively control the market. BAE Systems, for example, is one of the world’s largest weapons producers. It is by far the largest in the UK and one of the top five weapons producers in the world. Its sales are twice as big as those of its closest European peer, Airbus Group (although weapons sales account for less than a fifth of Airbus’s total sales). BAE’s size gives it a substantial competitive advantage, in my opinion. It has more money to invest in new technologies. It can also produce equipment at a lower cost than many of its peers.Moreover, the company also has unrivalled experience in specific sectors, such as shipbuilding. Not only has the group won multi-billion-pound contracts to build new vessels for the UK submarine and surface fleets, but in 2018 the organisation won a £20bn contract to build Australia’s fleet of new navy frigates.Put simply, this is an international giant of a company. Further, it dominates its industry and has tens of billions of pounds in revenues guaranteed for the next few years. BAE Systems share price risks Despite the company’s strengths, it does face risks and challenges as well. As noted above, the global defence industry is highly regulated. This means the firm could be blocked out of specific markets or lose its contracts if it doesn’t conform to government specifications.There are also ethical considerations to take into account. Some investors may not be comfortable owning part of a business that manufactures weapons for countries such as Saudi Arabia. BAE could face sanctions and restrictions for selling to certain countries and individuals. Another unique challenge the company faces is that the government owns what is known as a Golden share in the business. This prevents the corporation from making any extreme changes to its Articles of Association without the Secretary of State’s permission. There are certainly significant reasons why some investors might not want to own the BAE Systems share price. However, for the reasons outlined, I think the stock is one of the best businesses in the FTSE 100.Therefore, I’d buy the company for my portfolio today. The stock’s 5% dividend yield also looks so attractive in the current interest rate environment. However, this is just a guide, and there’s no guarantee the organisation will meet this distribution target. 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.

Justgiving creates application for Facebook users

first_img Howard Lake | 26 July 2007 | News Tagged with: Digital  16 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Online fundraising service Justgiving.com has created a fundraising application for the Facebook social networking website. Currently in a beta phase, the new application will allow Facebook users to add a Justgiving element to their profile, allowing them to track their fundraising progress and raise more funds from their network of online ‘friends’.Since 2001 Justgiving’s users have created over half a million fundraising pages raised more than £180 million for the 3,000 charities they work with.Facebook already contains over 500 Justgiving groups set up by people fundraising for their favourite charity. Over 100 events and many charities are also creating their own Facebook groups to raise awareness and increase fundraising from some of Facebook’s 30 million users. Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img The Justgiving application, expected to be available to consumers in late July, will allow fundraisers to accept donations from all over the world, and reclaim Gift Aid from UK taxpayers. It offers yet another method of promoting individuals’ fundraising activities by promoting them on their Facebook page and amongst their online friends.The new application has been in development since Facebook opened their network to external developers in May 2007.Matthew Knights, Technical Architect for Justgiving, said: “We want to help our users raise as much as they possibly can, and a proper application is so much more compelling than a standard hyperlink. It’s a perfect fit for Facebook users who are doing a traditional sponsored event or have created their own appeal; I think anyone would be hard pushed to find an easier way to engage their friends and contacts more quickly.”Justgiving estimates that 10-15% of its users have a Facebook account, which, combined with the rapid viral growth of the Facebook network, has made the development “an obvious next step to meet growing user demand”.Justgiving’s US sister company Firstgiving is also working on a Facebook app for its users.Justgiving’s app joins a growing number of fundraising or charity sector tools made available to Facebook users such as Chipin.com, Causes, Change.org, and GoodStorm Make Some Noise (for Amnesty International).

International Working Women’s Day: Celebrating liberation and revolution

first_imgDetroit Buffalo, N.Y. New York City Baltimore International Working Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 in countries around the globe. Here in the United States, Workers World members helped organize and participated in activities in a number of cities, including those mentioned here.Workers World Party in Detroit hosted an International Working Women’s Day speakout for justice and revolution on March 10, Harriet Tubman Day. The heroic freedom fighter and abolitionist, born into slavery in Maryland on an unknown date, died on March 10, 1913. An engaging and political talk on Tubman was given by Wanda, an activist walker and poet. The audience also heard about the revolutionary origins and history of International Women’s Day in a talk by WWP youth organizer Jamie, with comments from other speakout participants.The highlight of the evening was the presentation of Warrior Woman awards by WWP leader Debbie Johnson to three African-American workers, retirees and organizers. Lula Millender, Margaret Harris and Yvonne Jones were honored for their tireless commitment to the struggles of Detroiters and the oppressed worldwide. Their dedication includes passing out thousands of flyers, picketing the banks and eviction courts countless times, and raising money to help continue the ongoing struggle against austerity and racism led by their organization, the Moratorium Now! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures, Evictions & Utility Shutoffs.The Women’s Fightback Network-Maryland/D.C. gathered for a celebration of IWWD in Baltimore at People’s Park on Charles Street and then marched to an indoor dinner and rally. The keynote speaker was Takiyah Thompson, the Durham, N.C., freedom fighter charged in 2017 with taking down a Confederate statue outside the Durham County Courthouse. That action came three days after neo-fascists and KKK members assaulted anti-racist demonstrators in Charlottesville, Va., killing activist Heather Hyer. Thompson’s arrest, along with other freedom fighters in Durham, sparked months of rallies, marches and acts of solidarity. Their slogan, “Fighting racism is not a crime,” was successfully upheld when all were acquitted or had their charges dropped on Feb. 20.For International Working Women’s Day in Buffalo, N.Y., women’s rights and women’s liberation supporters from several groups defied a snowstorm to demand justice for Indigenous, Black and Brown women; full access to health care, including the choice of abortion, for all women; an end to racism and violence against women and against immigrant workers, and more. The March 8 demonstration lined a major traffic-clogged street during the evening commute and received non-stop honking, raised fists and delighted applause from car, truck and bus drivers going by.The International Working Women’s Day Coalition held a “Women in Rebellion” march on March 10 in New York City, beginning at Penn Station, home to famed Madison Square Garden. Those marching included delegations from Women Workers for Peace, Honduran Department 19 USA, Ecuadoran Women’s Forum, Stop FBI Repression, Gabriela NYC, Workers World Party and others.The boisterous demonstration went downstairs into Penn Station where travelers waiting for Amtrak, New Jersey Transit and Long Island Railroad trains saw and heard them. Many passengers raised their fists or clapped in solidarity. The marchers stopped in front of restaurants like KFC and Dunkin Donuts to pass out flyers while chanting “Justice for fast food workers!”Along the protest route, two male construction workers, one Black and one white, stopped jackhammering when they saw the “No War on Women” lead banner, giving their strong approval with the thumbs-up sign.After the demonstration, an indoor roundtable discussion was led by representatives from some of the groups who had marched. They spoke about their struggles and why it is important to build a united front against patriarchy, capitalism, racism and imperialism. Male supporters fixed a delicious lunch for the gathering.Contributing to this roundup were Sharon Black, Ellie Dorritie, Kris Balderas Hamel and Monica Moorehead.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
