Where I’m from up north, we have this saying, “Buy cheap, buy twice”. This means it’s a false economy to purchase cheap, inferior goods as they will disappoint or fail early. I see the same wisdom applying to buying cheap shares, especially during troubled times.Cheap shares: beware of sickly companiesMy adage warns us that things are sometimes cheap for a reason. When hunting for cheap shares, we must avoid the lurking ‘value traps’. These value shares just keep getting cheaper, often because the underlying businesses are in secular or long-term decline.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…Right now, there are dozens of apparently cheap shares in the FTSE 100. Many have seen their stock prices crash by 50% or more. But there are reasons why some are so cut-price.Cheap shares: buying into successful stocksIt would be impossible to convince me today to buy stocks in some sectors. These ailing sectors include leisure & entertainment, travel & tourism, and hospitality. For me, these areas offer too much instability, volatility and negativity to make them attractive to value investors.My current approach to hunting down cheap shares is to emulate billionaire Warren Buffett. He says: “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.”Recently, I’ve been seeking companies that are doing really well against the backdrop of the Covid-19 virus. Today, I added another great company to my list of cheap shares.Reckitt Benckiser is a great British successAt first, Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB) shares don’t appear to fit the usual criteria for cheap shares. But I see this firm as a wonderful Anglo-British company that’s tackling the coronavirus head-on and winning.RB’s products are household names – just look inside your kitchen cupboards and bathroom cabinets to find its brilliant brands. These include disinfectants Dettol and Lysol, which help to contain and kill Covid-19.RB’s products fall into three categories: hygiene, health and nutrition. Its hygiene products include household cleanser Cillit Bang, Harpic toilet cleaner and Vanish laundry detergent. RB owns health brands including Clearasil spot cream, Durex condoms and painkiller Nurofen. RB is also big in baby nutrition with its Nutra and Nutramigen formula milks.I see RB as a cheap ‘quality share’The coronavirus has ravaged the FTSE 100, with the index own almost 18% over 12 months, and has created many more cheap shares. Yet RB shares have soared more than 20% to thrash the wider market over the past year.Yet today, RB shares closed at 7,192p, slipping 12p and down 10.3% from their 52-week high of 8,020p set on 29 July. That was even though RB today released these outstanding results, showing strong growth in most categories and territories. Overall third-quarter sales growth was a healthy 6.9%, producing forecast-busting revenues of £3.5bn.Today, RB is a £51.3bn British success story. Its shares are highly rated, but so is the quality of its rising revenues. Its dividend yield is only 2.4%, but I see plenty of scope for growth and special payouts. As I’ve said, it’s worth paying for quality. For me, RB stands for Real Bargain. That’s why I’d buy these cheap shares today inside an ISA for tax-free gains and a passive income! Forget the stock market crash. I’d buy cheap shares like this in an ISA to retire rich! Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Stock market rally: how I’d invest £5,000 right now in UK sharescenter_img Peter Stephens | Saturday, 2nd January, 2021 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The track record of UK shares shows that a stock market rally is likely over the coming years. Even though the near-term outlook for many companies is uncertain, over the coming years, they are likely to experience stronger operating conditions that lift their valuations.As such, buying businesses with sound strategies and solid market positions could be a shrewd move. They may be in a stronger position to take advantage of an economic recovery. And they could have a more positive impact on a £5,000 investment in the coming years.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…Buying UK shares with sound strategies ahead of a stock market rallyCompanies that can successfully adapt their operations to changing consumer tastes may benefit the most from a long-term stock market rally. For example, they may have the flexibility to close unprofitable stores and switch their focus to online operations. Or they may be able to respond to consumers who are becoming increasingly environmentally and socially aware.As such, I think companies like Burberry and Unilever could prove to be sound buys. They are investing heavily in increasing their sustainability focus. They also have the capacity to expand online. And that means they can capture a growing market share of the digital consumer goods industry. This may help them to generate higher profitability, and could strengthen their market positions.Investing money in dominant businessesCompanies with solid market positions may also deliver relatively high returns in a long-term stock market rally. In the short run, UK shares with dominant market positions may be better able to survive a period of weak economic growth. They may be able to expand their presence at the expense of weaker rivals. And they could even move into new market segments that produce greater diversity and profitability in the coming years.As such, FTSE 100 shares such as British American Tobacco and AstraZeneca could prove to be sound buys today. British American Tobacco is investing in next-generation products that may catalyse its financial performance. Meanwhile, AstraZeneca is engaging in acquisition activity to strengthen its long-term growth prospects. Over time, both companies could outperform other UK shares.Investing money in UK stocks todayClearly, investing £5,000, or any other amount, in UK shares today may lead to paper losses in the short run. A stock market rally, although likely, may come with numerous ups and downs along the way.However, the track record of indexes such as the FTSE 100 show that the stock market has always fully recovered from its difficult periods to post new record highs. Investors who are able to identify companies with solid business models and sound strategies may be able to capitalise on the stock market’s growth prospects. Over time, this could improve their portfolio’s performance and lead to greater financial freedom. Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shareslast_img read more

Former Test stars Tim Stimpson and Ollie Phillips have set a new Guinness World Record for playing the northernmost rugby match in history, at the Magnetic North Pole – and raised a stack of money for charity in the process. The extraordinary feat was accomplished as part of the Wooden Spoon Arctic Challenge, which saw the intrepid group trek more than 60 miles over the ice in temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees C, then set up rugby posts, mark out a pitch perimeter and play a match.Team Tim beat Team Ollie 17-14, while another former England player Lee Mears was the referee. Winning skipper Tim Stimpson said: “Having played a lot of rugby up in Newcastle I’ve played in some chilly conditions but this was another level altogether!”Ex England Sevens captain Ollie Phillips added; “I can’t quite believe that we’ve done it, it’s an amazing feeling. The Arctic is an incredible yet dangerous place and we needed to be on the top of our game to make sure we didn’t make any mistakes during the trek, as one lapse in concentration could have been catastrophic.” Watch the Wooden Spoon Arctic Challenge video here. http://youtu.be/X4mvrp5Tehkcenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Artic Challenge was created with the aim of raising £300,000 for Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby, which helps disadvantaged and disabled children across the UK and Ireland.

He has 37 Patels and 50 Smiths on his list of multi-millionaires worth over £5 million, yet there are just 36,000 Patels on the electoral roll compared to 360,000 Smiths.

Advertisement Tesco has committed to mobilise all parts of its business to support future British Red Cross emergency responses, whether at a local, national or global level. Support could include corporate donations, staff and customer giving, donation of goods and the global store and distribution network.The two organisations have been working together over 10 years, and Tesco has helped raise £3.9 million for emergency appeals. In 2007 the charity was Tesco’s Charity of the Year. www.redcross.org.uk David Reid, Tesco Chairman, said: “Tesco and the Red Cross are now entering into a formal partnership to work together to help people affected by crisis.

first_imgprintTCU volleyball ended the Fight in the Fort Saturday with two wins over Lehigh (20-25, 25-16, 25-17, 25-15) and Utah Valley State (25-22, 25-16, 25-21) to clinch second place in their last pre-season home tournament of the season.“They responded really well having seen some adversity on Friday night and again first thing Saturday morning,” head coach Jill Kramer said. “That is what I am most proud of and they just went out there, played volleyball regardless of who was out there on the court.”The Frogs had another slow start in the first set against the Lehigh Mountain Hawks. The offense and defense both picked it up in the next three sets after Kramer made a line-up change.“We gave that same lineup another look that first set of the day just to not change it up too much on them,” Kramer said. “It was really obvious that was not going to work, so we changed it up a little bit and we just asked the team to trust us.”A new addition to the lineup included defensive specialist Kayla Scheevel who tallied 16 digs and tied with libero Dani Dennison for leader of the match in digs.The Horned Frogs finished off the tournament in the evening with their fifth sweep of the season in their match against Utah Valley State Wolverines. Outside hitter Ashleigh Martin notched her first double-double of her career with 16 kills and 10 digs, and freshman middle blocker Allye Beth Deaton hit .667 with 14 kills and no errors.“This last match against Utah Valley we played was the most consistent we have played offensively,” Kramer said. “This one was really consistent the entire match, and it was nice to end the weekend on a good note like that.”Deaton and Anna Walsh were named to the all-tournament team for the Horned Frogs with both hitting above .300 for the weekend.Kramer said the team will have a few days of rest before they prepare for their matches next weekend at the SMU Doubletree Classic in Dallas.

first_img Organisation News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Reports to go further Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state May 5, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Six other journalists have gone missing in Mexico since 2000: Jesús Mejía Lechuga, of Radio MS-Noticias, on 13 July 2003 in Veracruz state, in the southeast; Rodolfo Rincón Taracena, of the daily Tabasco Hoy in the state of the same name in the southeast on 20 January 2005; Alfredo Jiménez Mota, of the daily El Imparcial, since 2 April 2005 in Hermosillo, northwest; Rafael Ortiz Martínez, contributor to the daily Zócalo and radio station XHCCG 104.1 FM, on 8 July 2006 in Coahuila state, northern Mexico; Gamaliel López and Gerardo Paredes, of TV Azteca, on 10 May 2007 in Monterrey in Nuevo León state, also in northern Mexico. None of these cases has so far been solved. Reporters Without Borders today joined the family of missing editor José Antonio García Apac to demand an explanation from the authorities about the complete failure of the investigation into his disappearance exactly one year ago.The editor of the regional weekly Ecos de la Cuenca was seen for the last time on 20 November 2006, near Tepalcatepec in Michoacán State in the southwest of the country, when he was about to return to his home in the state capital Morelia. Follow the news on Mexico Receive email alertscenter_img “The disappearance of José Antonio García Apac, which could be linked to articles published in the weekly he headed, remains unexplained one year on. His wife and seven children are still waiting for news of him,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“Is this intolerable situation really because of a genuine absence of results in the investigation or a deliberate withholding of information on the part of the investigators? In either event, the relevant authorities have a duty to provide an explanation,” it said.In the weeks before the editor’s disappearance, the paper carried articles about violent score-settling between local drug cartels and alleged collusion with drug traffickers on the part of the authorities, in particular with the Zetas group (ex-paramilitaries who have turned to smuggling and kidnap for ransom) José Antonio García Apac’s family is convinced that his disappearance is linked to these revelations.His wife, Rosa Isela Caballero, told Reporters Without Borders, “I am in despair over my powerlessness in the face of investigations which go nowhere.” She said three representatives of the public ministry had been called into the investigation and that the local sub-commission of the federal justice ministry had not handed over the complete file.Rosa Isela Caballero, who took over the editorship of the Ecos de la Cuenca after her husband went missing, sent a letter to the authorities on 30 July asking why some leads had not been followed up from the start of the investigation, in particular the existence of a secret cemetery near Tepalcatepec which the police had never visited. She never received a clear reply to her letter.

Detained at his home in the southern city of Granada on 16 September 2005, he is due to appear before a judge in Madrid tomorrow.The press freedom organisation said it was puzzled by the decision to return Allouni to prison now, as he has never tried to escape from the Spanish judicial authorities since his first arrest two years ago.The Spanish authorities reportedly suspected that he might be planning to flee because he requested permission on 15 September to go to Syria to attend his mother’s funeral. The verdict in his trial is due to be announced on 26 September.However, a friend of Allouni’s stressed: “He never tried to flee although he had a thousand opportunities to do so.” And his wife, Fatima Allouni, voiced outrage in a phone conversation with Reporters Without Borders.“I spoke to him by telephone yesterday,” she said. “He is sad, especially about his mother’s death, but he is not depressed.” She added: “We are shocked by police leaks to the press alleging that Tayseer did not adhere to the conditions on which he was given bail. In fact he went and reported to the police every day.”A star reporter with the Arabic-language satellite TV station Al Jazeera, Allouni is famous for being the first journalist to see Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden after the 11 September attacks in the United States, interviewing him on 21 October 2001.Allouni faces up to nine years in prison if found guilty of belonging to a Spanish Al Qaeda cell accused of complicity in the 11 September attacks. He was first arrested in Spain in September 2003 but was released on health grounds a month later. Re-arrested in November 2004 and placed in custody, he was re-released during the trial on condition that he reported regularly to the police.center_img Organisation Help by sharing this information RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive Follow the news on Spain Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News June 2, 2021 Find out more December 2, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
