How should I invest £5k? The 5 UK shares I’d buy today

first_img Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 8th November, 2020 Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Fresnillo. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Now may not seem like a good time to buy UK shares. Indeed, the combination of the coronavirus crisis and Brexit makes for a highly uncertain outlook for stocks.However, research shows that buying shares at depressed levels generates the best returns in the long run. And that’s the strategy I’m using in the current crisis.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…As such, here are the five UK shares I’d buy today to take advantage of depressed prices. UK shares to buyThe first company on my list is B&Q owner Kingfisher. Before coronavirus, this business was struggling for direction, but since March, the stock has surged higher 0n the back of explosive sales growth.Consumers who have been confined to their homes have been spending money on home improvement, helping drive B&Q’s sales higher. The current mini housing boom has helped sustain this trend. As the country continues to battle Covid-19 with further restriction on movements, I think this trend could carry on, which suggests the outlook for Kingfisher’s stock is bright. I’d also considered buying gold and silver miner Fresnillo for a portfolio. This is one of the few UK shares that offer direct exposure to the precious metals market. Value of both gold and silver has jumped this year due to rising demand for the safe-haven assets.Analysts are expecting this performance to have a significant impact on Fresnillo’s bottom line. That’s why this company is one of the top stocks on my list to buy for an uncertain environment. Tech trend Provider of IT services Computacenter is having a blow-out 2020. Analysts are expecting the company’s bottom line to grow by around 10% this year, which could, they believe, help support a dividend payout of 45p per share. That suggests the stock’s dividend yield is going to hit 2%.I don’t think this growth is a one-off. Over the past five years, the group’s earnings per share have grown at a compound annual rate of 15%. As the world becomes increasingly reliant on the technology sector, I reckon Computacenter’s bottom line will continue to expand. 2020 has been incredibly challenging for retailers. However, footwear-focused JD Sports has been able to capitalise on its niche market position to weather the storm.Over the past few years, this business has gone from strength to strength as it has focused on doing what it does best, selling footwear. As long as the company sticks to this tried and tested growth strategy, I’m optimistic that it can continue to produce large total returns for investors.Rising profits Finally, I don’t think any list of UK shares to buy today would be complete without including financial services group CMC Markets. This trading specialist has seen revenues jump in 2020, thanks to the highly volatile market conditions.Therefore, I think this business could offer a hedge against further market turbulence. More volatility could lead to more trading, which would be great for CMC’s bottom line. I think investors may even see a special dividend from the City firm as its cash balance continues to balloon.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

One in four people expect to give less this Christmas, bank research shows

first_imgUp to £50 more5% Melanie May | 20 December 2017 | News Between £51 and £100 less6% The bank suggests that charities ensure they are receiving a competitive interest rate on cash deposit accounts to help counteract any fall in donations. It has found that many returns on cash deposit accounts for charities are offering low returns, with 30% of deposit accounts for charities paying 0.1% Gross AER or less on balances of £10,000 or over, and 13% offering less than 0.1% Gross AER on balances of this size. Its research also shows that less than 1% of deposit accounts open to charities are paying 1.00% Gross AER or more.Rachel Curtis-Bowen, Chief Customer Officer at Cambridge & Counties Bank said:“The cost of living for many people is rising and our research shows that for many this means they will be donating less to charities this year. Charities rely heavily on donations and if they see a drop here it could adversely affect the services and help they provide to millions of people.“However, charities can offset the impact of any fall in donations by making sure that the interest rate they receive on their cash deposits is competitive, and if it’s not they should be prepared to switch to a different provider or account.” Advertisement Tagged with: christmas Research / statistics Don’t know7% Between £201 and £300 more1% One in four people (24%) intend to donate less to charity this year than in 2016, while 12% anticipate they will give more, according to research from Cambridge & Counties Bank.Nearly half (47%) expect to donate around the same amount as last year. Asked why they will donate less, 39% said the main reason was because their disposable income has fallen, and 36% said it was down to their cost of living rising.  One in four (24%) said it was a result of other personal circumstances changing, meaning they have less money.

Solidarity with People’s Summit

first_imgThe International Action Center held a press conference in New York on April 10 in solidarity with the People’s Summit, which was being held in Panama City at the same time as the official Summit of the Americas.The People’s Summit has adopted declarations against U.S. sanctions on Venezuela and the continuing U.S. blockade of Cuba, “among other topics affecting the underdeveloped America, like poverty and the rising power of the progressive forces.”Presenters at the press conference called on President Barack Obama to rescind his decree imposing sanctions on Venezuela, at the same time he is proposing lifting them on Cuba.Speakers raised the difficulties the U.S. government faces talking about human rights abroad when there is a huge problem in this country of police violence against Black people, primarily unarmed young men and women. The officials in this country so discount this problem that there isn’t even a national register of police shootings.The case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was wounded but survived when police shot him during a traffic stop in 1981, was raised as an example of police violence. He was convicted of murder in 1982, spent the next 30 years on death row and was finally moved off death row due to unrelenting mass pressure. Still in prison, Abu-Jamal is now dangerously ill and risks death due to medical neglect.The press conference successfully tied together the struggle against racism in this country, exemplified by the Black Lives Matter movement, with lifting the blockades the U.S. government imposes on poor countries that don’t go along with its imperial demands.Teresa Gutierrez of the IAC chaired the well-attended press conference, held at the Solidarity Center. Among the presenters were Sara Flounders, representing the United National Antiwar Coalition; Suzanne Ross, speaking for International Concerned Families and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal; Ricardo Prado of Colombians in the Diaspora, who spoke in Spanish; and the Rev. Luis Barrios of ­I­FCO-Pastors for Peace, who explained how the current capitalist system in the U.S. contributed to the problems this conference was addressing.After the formal part of the conference, some of the presenters were interviewed individually by reporters from the Spanish-language media.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Appeal by NGOs and associations for Khaled Drareni’s release

first_imgWe encourage journalists in Algeria and all over the world to express their solidarity with their imprisoned colleague and, through their media and professional organizations, to make the public aware of the injustice suffered by Khaled Drareni and all other arbitrarily prosecuted journalists in Algeria, including Sofiane Merakchi, libanese TV channel Al-Mayadeen’s correspondent in Algiers, who has been jailed since 26 September. RSF_en News News News Imprisoning people in the middle of a pandemic is to compound a violation of basic rights with an act of physical endangerment. We, international and Algerian NGOs and associations, issue an appeal for the immediate release of journalists imprisoned in Algeria and for the withdrawal of arbitrary judicial proceedings against them. Khaled Drareni, the Algeria correspondent of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and TV5 Monde and editor of the Casbah Tribune website, has been imprisoned since 29 March on a charge of “inciting an unarmed gathering and endangering national unity.” April 2, 2020 – Updated on May 13, 2020 Appeal by NGOs and associations for Khaled Drareni’s release May 12, 2021 Find out more Organisation Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria to go further The NGOs and associations signing this appeal regret that the Algerian authorities are taking advantage of the coronavirus epidemic to settle scores with independent journalism.

Solis, Mark Ridley-Thomas, Sheila Kuehl, Kathryn Barger, Janice HahnThe Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is set to vote Tuesday on a strategic plan to craft antiracist policies and practices aimed at helping Black people in Los Angeles County.Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas authored a motion requesting that the board declare racism a matter of public health and prioritize eliminating biases from county operations and programs.“It is incumbent upon those of us who sit in positions of authority to begin dismantling systemic racial bias within the entities for which we are responsible,” Ridley-Thomas said last week when he previewed the proposal. “It’s no longer sufficient to support diversity and inclusion initiatives. The county has made great strides toward addressing and eliminating implicit bias. It is time to advance to the next level.“The county must move to identify and confront explicit institutional racism to set the national standard and become a leader of antiracist policymaking and program implementation.”If approved, the motion would direct CEO Sachi Hamai to quarterback a strategic plan to prioritize physical and mental health, housing, employment, public safety and justice in an equitable way for Black residents. Ridley- Thomas has proposed a 60-day deadline for a report back from the CEO.The motion also directs Hamai to commission an annual report by an academic or research institution to annually track the State of Black Los Angeles County and offer recommendations for supporting local, regional, state and federal initiatives that advance efforts to dismantle systemic racism. Reports would include economic and law enforcement data related to Blacks countywide.“We have an opportunity, I want to underscore, a responsibility to take up this mantle and run with it as far as we can because we have endured too much for too long,” Ridley-Thomas said last week. “But we can set a standard, a national standard, and that’s what we hope to do. No one is claiming that it’s going to be simple, easy or uncomplicated.”Black people make up about 9% of the population in Los Angeles County, but according to the motion, they also represent:— 11% of COVID-19 related fatalities;— 27% of the people shot or seriously injured by law enforcement (in 2017);— Nearly 30% of the overall population in county jails; and,— 34% of the population experiencing homelessness.An analysis by UCLA on unemployment in California during the COVID-19 crisis found that as many as 22% of Black workers were jobless.Ridley-Thomas’ proposal comes in the wake of the May 25 killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers, which set off nationwide protests. He said protesters took to the streets in opposition to “structural racism and discrimination, asymmetrical consolidation of power, extreme wealth and income inequity — all of which disproportionately disadvantage Black people.”Also last week, the heads of various Los Angeles County departments issued a statement — now prominently displayed on the county’s website — pledging to stand against racism.“We acknowledge that as government leaders, we have an opportunity to change the narrative on the role of government and its relationship to the communities it serves,” the statement read. “We stand against racism in any form and pledge to use our offices to advance racial and social equity, diversity and fairness.”In addition to his call for a strategic shift, Ridley-Thomas’ motion includes support for 67 specific recommendations put forth by the Ad Hoc Committee for Black People Experiencing Homelessness and asks that the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority be given what it needs to implement those ideas.Separately, Supervisors Sheila Kuehl and Hilda Solis have proposed a county charter amendment for the November ballot that would dedicate a minimum of 10% of the county’s general fund to be spent on direct community investment and alternatives to incarceration, none of which could be distributed through law enforcement agencies.Another planned Tuesday vote involves the approval of a spending plan for $1.22 billion in federal coronavirus relief dollars. In a letter to the board, Hamai indicated the county’s priorities for the money in the broadest possible terms, noting that just over half of the funding will go to support public health. The balance will be split between financial support for residents, small businesses and county staff performing COVID-19 related functions. A referenced attachment with further detail on just which departments and programs will receive funding — and whether any of the dollars are specifically aimed at resolving racial inequities — was not immediately available.As for Ridley-Thomas, he has less than five months left to influence county policy as a member of the board before he terms out and potentially moves on to serve on the Los Angeles City Council. He said he wants his motion to be a catalyst for eliminating perpetual racism against all races and ethnicities, like the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which was championed by Black civil rights leaders who risked their lives fighting for it.He took the unusual step of leading off his motion with a quote — from Harvard University professor and political activist Cornel West.“To engage in a serious discussion of race in America, we must begin not with the problems of Black people but with the flaws of American society — flaws rooted in historic inequalities and longstanding cultural stereotypes. How we set up the terms for discussing racial issues shapes our perception and response to these issues,” West wrote in his 1993 book “Race Matters.” Community News Community News L.A.
