FTSE 100 investors! Here’s why I’d still buy solid LSE shares

Last week saw one of the biggest and possibly fastest sell-offs in the recent history of global equity markets. Fears that the coronavirus outbreak may trigger a global recession are mounting quickly. And FTSE 100 investors, as well as analysts, are now wondering whether we are in a bear market.Today, I’d like to discuss why this pullback may be giving buy-and-hold investors an opportunity to pick up top-quality stocks at attractive prices.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…Market timing may be costlyI enjoy reading about the history of the financial markets. Choppiness and downturns have always been a reality of financial markets. Many of our readers would have heard of several of the famous historical bubbles and market crashes.Several past financial bubbles and crises include the Dutch Tulip Mania of the 17th century, the South Sea Bubble of the 18th century, the British Railway Mania of the 19th century, the Florida Real Estate Bubble of the 1920s, the Wall Street Crash of 1929 (leading to the Great Depression), Black Monday in October 1987, the collapse of Barings Bank in 1995, the Dotcom Bubble in the late 1990s, and finally the financial crisis and the bear market between 2007 and 2009. In the UK, we can possibly add the recent volatility caused by Brexit to the list.From outside, the story of each bull or bear market may initially look different, but dig deeper and it isn’t. After all, human psychology never changes: fear and greed are the two emotions that drive investors to the extreme. The common denominator in all of these market downturns has been that it is almost impossible to know when exactly they will start or end. And individual investors are usually wrong when attempting to time the markets. If they act upon their emotions and sell at the height of the panic, then those investors potentially miss out on the gains when the markets recover –  and yes, markets do recover.It might possibly be too optimistic to expect shares to recover fully in a matter of days. But what I can tell you is that in hindsight, this recent downturn will be remembered as a great buying opportunity. And those of us who do not get the shopping bag ready in March, may end up regretting not loading up on many high-quality shares.The companies I’m watching nowThe FTSE 100 seems to be the initial index Britons mostly consider when they first start investing.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 12th October, 2020 | More on: DGE SGE ULVR The FTSE 100 index is home to many top companies. So picking the best Footsie shares to invest in is not an easy task.However, if I could only own three FTSE 100 shares, here’s what I’d go for.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…A Warren Buffett-type FTSE 100 stockThe first FTSE 100 stock I’d buy is Unilever (LSE: ULVR). It’s a leading consumer goods company that owns loads of well-known, trusted brands such as Dove, Persil and PG tips.Why would Unilever be my first pick? Simply because it’s a world-class business. It’s the type of company that Warren Buffett invests in (Buffett actually tried to buy it a few years ago).Unilever has a lot going for it. For starters, it has a strong competitive advantage due to the power of its brands. As a result, it’s a very profitable company. Over the last five years, return on equity has averaged 45%.Secondly, it’s a very reliable company that’s pretty much recession-proof. It has a great long-term track record when it comes to generating shareholder wealth.On top of this, it’s well-positioned for growth over the next decade due to its exposure to the emerging markets (50%+ of sales).All in all, I see Unilever as an excellent core holding. The stock isn’t cheap, however, I believe it deserves a premium valuation.Dividend growth championThe second FTSE 100 stock I’d go for would be Diageo (LSE: DGE). It’s an alcoholic beverages giant that owns a number of well-known spirits brands such as Johnnie Walker, Tanqueray and Smirnoff.Like Unilever, Diageo is a high-quality company. Over the long term, it has generated considerable wealth for shareholders. Just look at the dividend growth track record here. Diageo has now registered 22 consecutive annual dividend increases, which is an outstanding achievement.DGE also has plenty of growth potential going forward. In the next decade, around 750m extra consumers in the emerging markets will be able to afford its products. I expect that in 10 years’ time, its sales will be much higher than they are today.Diageo shares have pulled back this year due to Covid-19. I see this share price weakness as a great buying opportunity.Technology playFor my third pick, I’d choose Sage (LSE: SGE). It’s a leading provider of ‘cloud-based’ accounting solutions and is trusted by millions of businesses worldwide. Sage would provide me with some exposure to the fast-growing technology sector.Sage is another high-quality FTSE 100 business. It generates a lot of recurring revenues (customers can’t switch to a competitor easily) and is a very profitable company. It also has a strong balance sheet and a fantastic long-term dividend growth track record.Looking ahead, the growth potential is significant. Between now and 2025, the market for cloud-based accounting solutions is forecast to grow at nearly 9% per year. Sage currently has around three million customers. However, it believes its total addressable market is nearly 70m businesses.All things considered, I think Sage is a top FTSE 100 stock. And I’m not the only one who is bullish here. Sage is admired by both Terry Smith and Nick Train – two of the UK’s top portfolio managers.Of course, I believe in diversification. Currently, I own nearly 20 FTSE 100 shares in my portfolio. However, if I had to pick only three Footsie stocks to invest in, these are the stocks I’d go with. Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Edward Sheldon owns shares in Unilever, Diageo, and Sage.

The mysterious death of Kendrick Johnson

first_imgAtlantaA videotape shows 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson walking down a hallway and entering the gym in the Lowndes County High School in Valdosta, Ga., eight years ago on Jan. 10, 2013. That night his mother, Jacquelyn Johnson, called the emergency number 911 to report that her son had not come home from school.On Jan. 11, Kendrick’s lifeless body was discovered, head down inside an upright 6-foot-high, rolled-up gym mat. His body was wedged in tightly, and his face was swollen beyond recognition.Kemdrick JohnsonThe local preliminary investigation and autopsy concluded Kendrick’s death was accidental due to positional asphyxia. His upside-down position caused his lungs to fill with fluid, so he wouldn’t have been able to breathe. The officials theorized that the African American youth had been trying to retrieve his sneakers that somehow had fallen into the mat opening, and that he had squeezed into the narrow space and couldn’t get out.Jacquelyn Johnson and Kenneth Johnson, Kendrick’s father, rejected that conclusion. They knew their son had been repeatedly attacked and harassed by known white students and that the school had not taken action despite the Johnsons’ complaints.Many members of Valdosta’s Black community shared the Johnsons’ doubts about the local investigation and joined in multiple demonstrations and rallies, demanding “Justice for KJ.” The movement spread across the state and beyond.The Johnsons suspected their son had been murdered. Their suspicions gained traction when a second autopsy paid for by the family found indications of “a non-accidental blunt force trauma on his neck near his carotid artery.” The autopsy made another shocking discovery — Kendrick’s body had been stuffed with newspapers. All the internal organs from his pelvis to his skull were missing.CNN reported on Oct. 10, 2013, that the funeral director said the internal organs had been “discarded by the prosecutor before the body was sent back to Valdosta.”But the Johnsons persisted in demanding answers.  Two years later, the Department of Justice launched a federal investigation to determine if Kendrick’s civil rights had been violated. However, in June 2016 the DOJ stated that their investigation did not have sufficient evidence “beyond a reasonable doubt” to charge anyone with a federal crime. But it must be noted that murder and manslaughter are not federal crimes.The DOJ collected 17 boxes of documents, videotapes, crime scene photos and more evidence, which have been released to Lowndes County Sheriff Ashley Paulk, who announced on March 10 that he was reopening the case. Paulk had not been involved in the original investigation and has publicly said the community has questions about Kendrick’s death that deserve to be answered.The Johnson family is hopeful that after eight long years they might find out the truth about how their son, Kendrick Johnson, died.Justice for Kendrick Johnson!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Altadena Grocery Store Workers Will Soon Get $5 ‘Hero Pay’

Required fields are marked *center_img The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 today to adopt an urgency ordinance requiring national grocery and drug retail employers in unincorporated areas of the county, which includes nearby Altadena, to pay frontline workers an additional $5 per hour hazard pay, or “hero pay,” for the next 120 days.Supervisor Kathryn Barger, who represents Altadena, voted against the measure, which is to take effect immediately. Barger cited unintended consequences and a concern that the ordinance only covers a “small sliver” of the essential workforce.Supervisors Hilda Solis and Holly Mitchell co-authored the motion calling for the temporary “urgency” ordinance that would apply to store chains that are publicly traded or have at least 300 employees nationwide and more than 10 employees per store.Solis pointed to store profits as one justification, though she referenced a Brookings Institution analysis that includes retailers like Amazon and Home Depot, rather than just grocers and drug retailers.However, some of the national grocers listed, like Kroger and Albertsons, enjoyed even higher profits, according to analysis.“Grocery and drug retail employees have continued to report to work and serve our communities, despite the ongoing hazards and dangers of being exposed to COVID-19,” Solis said. “These workers, many of whom include older adults and single mothers, have put their lives on the line since the beginning of the pandemic to keep our food supply chain running and provide access to medicine our families need. Many are working in fear and without adequate financial support, while their employers continue to see profits grow and top executives receive steep pay bonuses.”Barger questioned whether anyone on the board had done a deep dive into the employers’ income statements and shared a statistic from the California Grocers Association pointing to an average annual profit of 2.2%.“I have concerns about the unintended consequences that will result from this board directing salaries in the private sector. Stores can pass on additional labor costs to the public through price increases. However, they may also reduce the hours of the impacted workers or decrease the number of employees that they hire,” Barger said.Kroger announced earlier this month that it would shutter two of its Long Beach stores — a Ralphs location and a Food 4 Less store — in response to a Long Beach ordinance requiring a $4 “hero pay” salary boost for some workers.Barger said the board had worked hard to fill “food deserts” inunincorporated areas.“I fear that a mandated ‘hero pay’ in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County will only further exacerbate these concerns,” Barger said.The California Grocers Association has filed federal lawsuits against the cities of Long Beach, West Hollywood and Montebello seeking to declare hazard pay mandated by those cities as invalid and unconstitutional, contending that grocers will not be able to absorb the additional pay without raising prices, closing stores, reducing hours or laying off employees.“Extra pay mandates will have severe unintended consequences on not only grocers but on their workers and their customers,” said CGA President and CEO Ron Fong.“A $5/hour extra pay mandate amounts to a 28% increase in labor costs. That’s huge. Grocers will not be able to absorb those costs and negative repercussions are unavoidable,” Fong said.The county’s emergency ordinance, which sunsets in 120 days, mirrors one approved by the city of Los Angeles, according to Solis.Solis and Mitchell said several grocery corporations offered $2 to $4 hourly raises at the outset of the pandemic, but that additional support lapsed in May.The association said in addition to increased pay and spot bonuses, some grocers have enhanced benefits and created tens of thousands of new jobs statewide since March.Mitchell underscored that some of the workers — “who have continued to show up for all of us every single day, against great odds” — are among the most vulnerable county residents.“The additional compensation …. will not fix all inequities, but will provide some reprieve,” Mitchell said, noting that some full-time employees “earn so little that they still qualify for many public benefits.”The ordinance is structured so that employees can choose paid leave in lieu of the extra pay if the additional income would cause them to lose access to such benefits.

Industry Groups Petition FCC for Autodialer Clarification

He can be reached at [email protected] The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save May 9, 2018 2,087 Views Industry Groups Petition FCC for Autodialer Clarification More than a dozen trade associations are seeking clear guidance from the FCC on just what constitutes an autodialer under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).The groups recently united to send a petition to the FCC following a recent decision by a D.C. appeals court in the case of ACA International v. FCC. The case challenged the FCC’s interpretations of the TCPA, as laid out in a July 2015 Omnibus Declaratory Ruling and Order. At issue were four particular questions pertaining to the interpretation of TCPA rules. As laid out on ACA International’s website, ACA focused their arguments on three areas: “the definition of an ‘automatic telephone dialing system,’ the identity of the ‘called party’ in the reassigned number context, and the means by which consent can be revoked.”On the topic of what constitutes an autodialer or “automatic telephone dialing system,” the Court sided with ACA, pointing out that the FCC’s previous interpretation could lead to unintended consequences such as ordinary people suddenly finding themselves in violation of the law simply by making use of their smartphone. The opinion reads:“Imagine, for instance, that a person wishes to send an invitation for a social gathering to a person she recently met for the first time. If she lacks prior express consent to send the invitation, and if she obtains the acquaintance’s cell phone number from a mutual friend, she ostensibly commits a violation of federal law by calling or sending a text message from her smartphone to extend the invitation.”In the new petition, the groups request a declaratory ruling from the FCC that will “confirm that to be an ATDS, equipment must use a random or sequential number generator to store or produce numbers and dial those numbers without human intervention” and “find that only calls made using actual ATDS capabilities are subject to the TCPA’s restrictions.”The topic of robocalls/autodialers was also the subject of a recent Senate hearing. Scott Delacourt, Partner, Wiley Rein LLP and a representative of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce who testified at the Senate hearing, said: “Unfortunately, the Commission’s implementation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act over many years has fostered a whirlwind of litigation. Interpretations by courts and the FCC have strayed far from the statute’s text, Congressional intent, and common sense, turning the TCPA into a breeding ground for frivolous lawsuits brought by serial plaintiffs and their lawyers, who have made lucrative businesses out of targeting U.S. companies.”According to Delacourt, the number of TCPA case filings exploded to 4,860 in 2016, and TCPA litigation grew 31.8 percent between 2015 and 2016.However, fraudulent robocalls remain a persistent challenge for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and for the industry and lawmakers.In 2017, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 7.1 million complaints from consumers against robocalls. Of these, 771,000 complaints were about fraudulent calls that allegedly helped consumers reduce debt.

Good Samaritan shot in head attempting to break up road rage confrontation: Police

first_imgcarlballou/iStock(ATLANTA) — A Georgia good Samaritan is fighting for his life after he was shot in the head while attempting to break up a road rage confrontation in a suburb of Atlanta, authorities said on Tuesday. The victim, whose name has not been released, was in critical condition, according to the DeKalb County Police Department. “He was just trying to help squash an altercation between two individuals and ended up getting shot,” Sgt. Jaques Spencer told ABC affiliate station WSB-TV in Atlanta.The shooting occurred about 8 a.m. on Monday at a busy intersection in Stone Mountain, about 20 miles southeast of Atlanta, police said.The victim was a bystander who witnessed a road rage confrontation erupt between two motorists and attempted to intervene to stop the violence, Spencer said.One of the men involved in the confrontation got back into his car and drove away, Spencer said. But just when the victim thought the incident had been defused, the suspect’s car returned to the scene and a passenger got out and fired several shots at the victim, hitting him in the head, Spencer said.Police said the shooter got back into a silver Honda Accord and sped away, prompting a six-hour manhunt in the area.A tipster spotted a vehicle matching the Honda and called the police, authorities said. The tip led officers to a home in Stone Mountain about two miles from where the shooting occurred. A DeKalb County Police SWAT team surrounded the house and arrested a suspect, identified as 23-year-old Aden Bouh, about 2 p.m. on Monday, according to police.Bouh was booked into the DeKalb County Jail on one count of aggravated assault, according to jail records.Police said the investigation of the shooting is ongoing, and it remained unclear if Bouh is the person who shot the good Samaritan.A second man was taken into custody, but later released, police said. Bouh remained in custody Tuesday.The shooting marked the latest in an alarming series of apparent road rage shootings throughout the nation and came just days after a 3-year-old girl, Brooklyn Harris, was shot to death in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when a motorist, allegedly angry at the child’s mother over a near accident, opened fire on the family’s car.Antonio Bratcher, 39, was arrested in the fatal shooting of Brooklyn and has been charged with murder, authorities said.On Tuesday, relatives, friends and community residents gathered in Milwaukee for Brooklyn’s funeral.“I’m praying that all these kids should be safe out here. Whoever is angry they need to go get some help,” Brooklyn’s grandmother, Lasagna Ferguson, told ABC affiliate station WISN-TV in Milwaukee.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
