Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Enter Your Email Address During times of uncertainty, many investors look to buy gold. This may be actually owning physical gold, or having exposure via a financial instrument. For example, you could buy an exchanged-trade fund (ETF) that tracks the price of gold. Or you could buy a stock of a mining company with large exposure to gold mining and production.The reason why many flock to gold is that it has a store of intrinsic value. I know that my bar of gold is actually worth something tangible, in comparison to some other assets. One of the reasons that Bitcoin has struggled to really take off as a mainstream investment is that nobody really knows its intrinsic value.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…Over the past six months, we have seen the price of gold rally to multi-year highs as investors have become unsettled by the state of the world. Following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, gold hit a high just shy of $1,700 per ounce this month.Yet since then, it has actually fallen, with the price last week dropping below $1,500 per oz. This is because some investors are having to sell their gold in order to pay for losses incurred on other investments, as well as for margin call payments.Income payingThe first reason I still prefer buying stocks over gold is from an income point of view. Gold as an asset does not pay any income. It never has and never will do. In fact, if I buy enough gold, I actually have to pay an ongoing cost to store it safely!With a stock investment, I can buy into a firm which pays me a dividend. Given that my overall yield on this dividend it worked out by dividing the share price by the dividend per share, the recent sell-off makes many yields look more attractive. A firm may be financially unaffected by the recent virus but may have seen a sell-off in share price due to general sentiment. Thus, the dividend is still going to be paid, but the share price is lower. This generates a higher dividend yield, and gives me a source of income during the market crash. This is something gold will not do.Good examples of dividend paying stocks are mentioned by my colleague Roland Head here. Buy low, not highThe golden (if you’ll pardon the pun) rule of investing is to buy low and sell high. So which asset should I technically be buying at the moment? I could buy gold, which hit eight-year highs this month. Or I could buy shares in the FTSE 100, which hit lows last week not seen for a decade. For me, the sensible option is to buy the undervalued stocks in the FTSE 100. I wrote about two examples recently which I like. Ultimately, I am not against owning gold, but I would much prefer to buy it during the good times when the price is low. That is why currently I would avoid gold over stocks. Jonathan Smith | Tuesday, 24th March, 2020 Forget the gold price!

This FTSE 100 company has suspended dividends. Here’s why I’m still buying it

first_imgThis FTSE 100 company has suspended dividends. Here’s why I’m still buying it “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m talking about the FTSE 100 pest control and hygiene services company Rentokil Initial (LSE: RTO). It suspended dividend payments earlier this week, including the final dividend for the year. I don’t think investors should be fazed by this. The reason’s simple – RTO was never a dividend stock to start with. Not a dividend stockEven earlier, Rentokil’s total dividend level was 5.15p per share. At yesterday’s closing share price, this translates to a low 1.3% yield. To put that in context, the FTSE 100 as a whole has a dividend yield of 7% at present. With much better FTSE 100 dividend stocks available, I’m not perturbed by the actual cut in RTO’s dividends. Rather, I’m interested in the why of the story. 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…There are various reasons companies may cut dividends, not all of which are bad. For instance, it could want to plough money back into capital spending, which might be beneficial for long-term investors. But the timing of this particular cut suggests that all may not be well at Rentokil. So I dug into the details to get a better understanding of what’s really going on for this otherwise attractive share. Proactive measuresThe answer’s obvious: Covid-19. In its trading update, RTO says that its operations have been hit, as was to be expected. Concrete numbers on how much business it’s losing aren’t available yet, but it’s already on a cost-cutting and cash conservation drive. I think these are proactive steps, which give me greater confidence in management. Resilient demandThis adds to the company’s positives. In any case, RTO’s share price chart shows that it’s close to being the perfect dream of a long-term growth investor. The company’s share price has risen steadily over time, with a few bumps, making it a good growth stock. Buying shares of companies providing products and services with relatively resilient demand can be a good idea even in a weak economy. This is because their revenue stream is unlikely to be impacted. Positive future for this FTSE 100 stockBesides this, the expected business pickup after the crisis is over could be beneficial for Rentokil Initial. In its own words “When the crisis ends we envisage that there will be a significant demand for hygiene and pest control clean up services”. I’d  expect the combination of steps undertaken to manage its finances along with a bump up in revenues in the future will make RTO one of the companies that are unscathed by the economic plunge. Its share price saw an over 8% fall on the day the trading update was released, but it’s already risen sharply from there. However, at the last close at time of writing, it was still 24% below the highest level of 525.4p seen in 2020 so far. I believe its price is poised to rise further, making the current time a good buying opportunity.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares today!

first_img Despite the uncertainty and risk surrounding the pandemic, I would use any share price weakness as the perfect opportunity to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares. It is now clear that the pandemic (or at least its after-effects) will be around for a while. There will be casualties. Some businesses will fail, others will be severely damaged. In these cases, shareholders will suffer. But there will also be businesses that are positively affected by the affects of the pandemic and the subsequent social distancing. The virus has inadvertently separated stocks into winner and losers. Investors that are able to separate the two, will be rewarded.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…It is easy to identify the losers. Airlines and leisure companies have been among the hardest hit. So too have gyms, restaurants, theme parks and hotels. Virtually their entire operations have come to a halt, in many cases eliminating revenues completely. Huge multi-billion-pound losses await, with the possibility of equity raisings diluting investor ownership. It could be years before these companies get back to where they were before the virus, let alone having the chance to grow further. The worst-case scenario is that the pandemic brings about a permanent change to consumer behaviour, affecting the future viability of these businesses.Recession-proof cheap FTSE 100 sharesThankfully, there are many recession-proof, resilient companies that have seen their operations largely continuing through the crisis. They will still suffer from lower revenues and profitability, but less so. These are companies that represent safe investments in any climate and are currently cheap FTSE 100 dividend shares. I’m thinking about sectors that provide critical solutions, such as engineering, defence, utilities and power. They’re especially safe when their end client is the government, which effectively provides a backstop.Of these resilient companies, there are some that haven’t just been surviving, but have been flourishing. Makers of bleach, hand sanitisers and other cleaning products have seen their sales boom. Manufacturers and sellers of staple and long-life foods will also have benefited from lockdown and panic-buying. Supermarkets, convenience stores and corner shops will all have seen a marked improvement. These companies produce goods that will be needed no matter what’s happening. I would be very surprised if investors in these companies lost money in the long term.WinnersFinally, there are sectors that have benefited enormously. The biggest beneficiary seems to be the tech sector. As the world has been kept indoors, we’ve invariably gone online, whether that’s through social media, telecommunications, or ordering food. As well as facilitating business and social interactions, it’s also keeping us safe and entertained.Of course, the other big winner is the pharmaceutical industry, from testing laboratories to huge drugs companies. Investors have started to bet on who’s going to come up with a vaccine/treatment first.Undoubtedly, the best opportunities for superior returns lie within this final group. But this group also carries the most risk. These shares are likely to be expensive already and may not live up to expectations. For that reason, I would only look at the cheaper end of this group. That might be like to trying to find a needle in a haystack, though. I think we’re better off buying the second group of cheap FTSE 100 shares, which should also bring a lot less risk.

Nick Abendanon crunches Lee Dickson then gets smashed by George Pisi

first_imgSaturday Dec 31, 2011 Nick Abendanon crunches Lee Dickson then gets smashed by George Pisi Another fantastic rugby year has come and passed as we now look forward to 2012, which has many big things in store for loyal Rugbydump followers. For now though let’s end 2011 with two big hits from a few days back in the Aviva Premiership. Perhaps more than any of the five years we’ve been running, 2011 has seen great strides made in terms of getting the website in a position for genuine growth. With the platform and relationships in place, RD will continue to improve, grow, and diversify over the next year. Those of you who visit regularly will start seeing the changes take place and your online rugby experience will soon improve significantly.As always, the site is driven by user interaction and feedback though, so keep in touch and make sure you share your thoughts and ideas with us via our rapidly growing social media channels on Twitter and Facebook.

Win-win for everyone.Back to this clip, and it features Bath’s Nick Abendanon smashing Lee Dickson as Saints attempted a move off the back of the scrum a few days back. The impact was massive and might have been called a shoulder by some cynics, despite it looking okay to the officials. Dickson unfortunately appeared to bite his tongue, which would not have been the most pleasant thing to experience while getting smashed to the floor.George Pisi got a bit of revenge a few minutes later though, as he flew at Abendandon in another crunching hit. The Bath fullback has a bit of a history with Samoans actually, so make sure you check out the related posts below which include a few huge tackles on the poor guy.We’d like to wish you a very Happy New Year.

Save this picture!Basically it is a one-room house. Though the plan is quite unique, being radially intonated, or bent, at several points. From the bent point are walls stretched towards the center of the architecture. Each spaces created between these walls have, thus, different depths and different extent of relation to other spaces. A wide range of diverse qualities of the spaces, such as composure, privacy and so on, are obtained. Convoluted Cavern, Drawn with One Stroke This house could be described as a primitive housing. Save this picture!Tracing its history, creating architecture is none other than producing various disntance. For instance, a private room is a situation where the distance is long or solid, to be separated. On the contrary, being distant yet connected generates the expanse of a space. What we suggest here is, a new but primitive, simple architecture, which embraces diverse feeling of distance within its intoned shape. Garden of Relationship Save this picture!The house might be similar to alleys and Japanese garden. That is, steppingstones are usually placed at those alleyways, and the scenery keeps changing while one stepping across by the stones. Each one step renews relationship of things around.

Radical phone and Internet monitoring proposal to be put to parliament

By placing all of its citizens under surveillance, it would have the effect of encouraging its targets to use easily accessible anonymization methods. And its implementation without reference to the courts could open the way to all kinds of abuses.“The introduction of this system would turn Internet Service Providers and mobile phone operators into police auxiliaries. This is not just open to criticism in principle. It would encounter major legal, technical and financial obstacles in practice. Britain, the land of habeas corpus, must continue to set an example as regards the protection of individual rights and freedoms.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the British government to abandon this bill and to consider other ways to fulfil its duty to combat terrorism, ways that respect individual freedoms and the right to privacy.”The Home Office (interior ministry) confirmed yesterday that it is preparing a bill that would give the British intelligence services access to all the telephone and electronic communication records of its citizens. A Home Office spokesman said the bill, which would enable the authorities to combat “serious crime and terrorism” more effectively, would come before parliament as soon as room was found in the legislative calendar.According to government and ruling coalition representatives, ISPs, phone operators and website hosting companies would have to install equipment that would allow Britain’s leading signals intelligence agency, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), real-time access to any person’s communication records and browsing history without referring to a court and regardless of the requirements of any ongoing investigation.As things stand, Britain’s law enforcement agencies can only access such information when the person is being investigated and after obtaining ministerial approval.Under the proposed bill, the authorities would have a free hand to compile lists of the phone calls, emails and SMS message exchanged between any individuals, with their frequency and length, as well as the websites visited by any person. Special authorization would however be necessary to access the content of the communications.Reporters Without Borders urges the British authorities to engage in fully transparent consultations with Internet companies before proceeding. Many questions need answering. Who will be responsible for managing and protecting the data gathering by this surveillance system? How long would data be kept?In a June 2011 report, United Nations special rapporteur for freedom of expression Frank La Rue voiced alarm at the tendency of some government to reinforce their ability to monitor the activities of Internet users without providing sufficient guarantees against abuses and without data protection laws that specify the purpose for which the data is used, how it is kept and for how long.La Rue’s report also stressed that the right to privacy should only be curtailed in “exceptional circumstances” and never systematically.A similar bill was considered by the previous Labour government but was abandoned because of an outcry from civil society. There was renewed concern about the current government’s requests for the cooperation of the BlackBerry smartphone’s manufacturer and the main British TV stations in identifying the participants in the London riots in the summer of 2011, and about its threat to restrict access to instant messaging, social networks and microblogs.
