The broker points to the firm’s cost reductions as a highlight of its results on Tuesday, helping to keep balance sheet gearing at 15 per cent and below most of its competitors. While DB has not ruled out further M&A, it believes management see long-term value in organic growth. Risks for the future include weaker commodity prices and a stronger Australian dollar.UBSEvolution Securities rates the bank “buy” with a target price of 21 Swiss francs. The broker believes its fourth-quarter results suggest a respectable return for investors, despite most of the bank’s divisions operating well below their profit potential. Evo also notes UBS’s industry-leading core tier 1 capital ratio of 15.3 per cent, giving it space to resume payouts while limiting the company’s risks from contingent convertibles.WOLFSON MICROELECTRONICSRBS has upgraded the microelectronics firm from “hold” to “buy” with a new target price of 350p. The broker expects margins of 20 per cent in the second half of 2011, which it sees pushing up the stock price. RBS thinks Wolfson is ideally placed to benefit from 130 per cent forecast growth in Android-based devices this year, while also diversifying its product base to include higher margin goods such as power management.

This FTSE 100 stock doubled in value in 2020. I’m thinking of buying it for 2021

Jonathan Smith | Sunday, 27th December, 2020 | More on: SMT I always find myself with time on my hands between Boxing Day and the end of the year. Apart from the golf course, I’ve more time to spend on looking at some good FTSE 100 stock ideas for the next year. One strategy is to look at the top performers from this year and see if the share price rally could continue into 2021. An example of this is the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE:SMT). The FTSE 100 stock has rallied over 117% over the past year. This means that an investment in it would have easily doubled my money. Even when you take into account the slump during the March sell-off, the stock growth has been remarkably linear over the past 12 months. This is the first tick in the box of a sustainable growth share for 2021. If the share price had erratic moves similar to Bitcoin, I’d be more cautious about buying in.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…Riding on coattails For those not familiar with the investment trust, it’s essentially a collection of stocks held by the investment managers. SMT has a wide remit on what it can invest in. It doesn’t just invest in FTSE 100 stocks, or property.The strong rally for 2020 was due to an increase in the value of the underlying stocks held within the trust. As of Q3, the top holdings were Tesla, Amazon, Alibaba and Tencent (in that order). The top 10 stocks accounted for 52% of the overall trust. This is quite high, but it’s been the concentrated holdings that have really provided the large outperformance. For example, the Tesla share price started the year below 100p and now trades close to 700p. The rise in market capitalisation has meant it’s now heading into the S&P 500. With the trust’s holdings being over £17bn, having 14% of this in Tesla (as of Q3), has directly helped its asset value surge as well.A FTSE 100 stock for 2021?Personally, I think that the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust share price is sustainable and could grow in 2021. The growth this year was down to the skill of the investment managers. From this angle, there’s no reason why the trust can’t deliver a similar performance next year. In my opinion, it’s not a business that’s overvalued. After all, the share price should track (with some margin for error) the net asset value of the stocks held. It’s also not a business that could easily lose out to competitors, as the performance is driven by buying and selling stocks. There’s not a finite amount that can be bought. The only restriction would be investors pulling out their funds.Although controversial, I feel the same way about Pershing Square Holdings, which recently was promoted to the FTSE 100. It’s a similar business to the trust and I think that I’m going to buy both businesses shortly. It works as a diversifier with my more ‘traditional’ stocks. In effect it puts my money into the hands of experienced investment managers. That being the case, it can give me more time to pursue other active investments.

Houston mourns border deaths of children from Guatemala

first_imgIn December activists led by the Carnalismo Brown Berets gathered to mourn the deaths of Jakelin Caal Maquin, 7, on Dec. 8 and Felipe Gómez Alonzo, 8, on Dec. 25, two Guatemalan children who died while in custody of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.Caal died in a hospital two days after she was taken to a Border Patrol station, just days after her seventh birthday. She was in custody for over eight hours with no water. Houston activists gathered a few days later outside of what is planned to be a “baby jail” for migrant children. With candles lit at the vigil, Brown Beret activist Elizabeth Lozano expressed her sadness and anger at the death: “We must stay active so no more children die at the hands of the Border Patrol.”Janie Torres, the sister of Jose Campos Torres, who was murdered by Houston police on Cinco de Mayo in 1977 in an explosive case that received national attention, told those at the vigil: “We need unity. We must work together to stop the violence from the government.”Participating with the Brown Berets were members of the Carrizo/Comecrudo Indigenous nation and F.I.R.E., Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere.— Report and photo by Gloria RubacFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

Tribute to Sardasht Osman on second anniversary of his murder

first_img May 4, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Tribute to Sardasht Osman on second anniversary of his murder Arabic versionToday is the second anniversary of Sardasht Osman’s murder. Two years have passed since this 23-year-old journalist was kidnapped by gunmen outside the foreign language department at Salahaddin University in Erbil on 4 May 2010 and was found dead four days later in Mosul with a gunshot wound to his head – two years of complete impunity for his killers.Reporters Without Borders pays tribute to this young reporter, whose many articles included a much-commented op-ed piece for the Kurdistan Post at the end of 2009 headline, “If only I were Massoud Barzani’s son-in-law.”Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues, who will gather tomorrow to mark this sad anniversary. Reporters Without Borders reiterates its request to the Kurdistan Regional Government to shed light on his murder and again deplores the lack of transparency surrounding its investigation.Osman’s family has always questioned the independence of the special commission that Kurdistan’s president, Massoud Barzani, set up under the interior ministry’s control to investigate Osman’s abduction and murder.During a fact-finding visit to Kurdistan in July 2010, a Reporters Without Borders delegation tried to establish the status of the investigation and sought in vain to meet with members of the commission. None of the people the delegation spoke to was able or willing to name any of its members. The flagrant lack of transparency was highlighted in the report that Reporters Without Borders released on 4 November 2010.The commission issued initial findings on 15 October 2010. It said in a press release that Osman’s murder had nothing to do with his activities as a journalist. It stemmed, it said, from his refusal to cooperate with Ansar Al-Islam, a radical Islamic group linked to Al-Qaeda. Hicham Mahmoud Ismail, a driver and mechanic living in Beji who had been arrested on suspicion of carrying out Osman’s abduction had confessed to transporting him from Shargat (near Tigrit) to Mosul at the group’s behest without knowing he was to be killed, the press release said.The family immediately disputed the findings. “We not only reject the results of the enquiry but we also condemn its actions and voice our anger at these attempts to portray Sardasht as a terrorist who cooperated with Ansar Al-Islam,” the family said in a statement. “Anyone who knew Sardasht or read his articles knew that he was a secular person far removed from terrorist ideology.”Ansar Al-Islam issued a statement on 23 October 2010 denying any role in his murder.Meanwhile, two years have gone by and Osman’s murderers are still at large.Reporters Without Borders points out that another 23-year-old journalist, Lvin Magazine reporter Soran Mama Hama, was gunned down in his home in Kirkuk on 21 July 2008. We also pay tribute to him today.

Grubbs, the Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry at Caltech, has been named the recipient of the American Chemical Society’s George A. Olah Award in Hydrocarbon or Petroleum Chemistry for 2017. This award recognizes Grubbs’ pioneering work in creating simpler, more efficient methods for manufacturing compounds used in industries including agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and petroleum extraction. Grubbs, a co-winner of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Chemistry who joined the Caltech faculty in 1978, was honored “for his fundamental work and revolutionary contributions for converting hydrocarbons to new molecules, polymers, and materials,” according to an article in the society’s Chemical & Engineering News magazine.“It’s a recognition that we made contributions that people care about,” says Grubbs, adding that the award is the result of the hard work of everyone on his team of students and postdoctoral fellows.Receiving the award took on special meaning, Grubbs says, because its namesake, George Olah—a Nobel Prize-winning chemist at the University of Southern California—died only weeks before the award ceremony. Grubbs says he had been hoping to see Olah at the event.“I knew George for many years. He was one of my heroes when I was a young chemist,” Grubbs says.Grubbs’ research has focused on developing catalysts for olefin metathesis, a type of chemical reaction that breaks double bonds between carbon atoms and reforms them in a different configuration. The catalysts developed by Grubbs are distinguished by their ability to target specific bonds within a molecule while leaving others unaffected. The selective nature of the catalysts results in very efficient chemical reactions and fewer unwanted by-products.One of Grubbs’ catalysts was used to produce a compound that was part of the first successful treatment for hepatitis C; another is being used in the production of a polymer that insulates oil pipelines. A company cofounded by Grubbs to commercialize his catalyst technology has partnered with agricultural giant Cargill to produce biofuels and chemicals from vegetable oils.

Within the fund, three investments have been initiated to help provide supportive housing for individuals experiencing homelessness and populations displaced by natural disasters. David Leopold, VP of Targeted Affordable Sales & Investments at Freddie Mac, said that the “National Equity Fund has a more than 30-year track record of making investments that help the most underserved communities, and Freddie Mac is very proud to aid that mission through one of our LIHTC Equity funds.” The investments we have made through the fund thus far are making home possible for those displaced by Hurricane Harvey and individuals experiencing homelessness in some of the most housing-challenged communities in the country.”A $15 million LIHTC equity investment in Houston’s New Hope Housing’s Dale Carnegie development will provide housing and supportive services to 170 individuals and families displaced by Hurricane Harvey. The other two are aimed at helping the homeless and Veterans in the Los Angeles area. One is for Skid Row Housing in Los Angeles for an estimated 100 homeless veterans and special needs individuals. A $19.6 million LIHTC equity investment in Skid Row Housing Trust’s Flor 401 Lofts development will provide both housing and supportive services. The other, A $26.5 million LIHTC equity investment in Hollywood Community Housing’s Florence Mills Apartments, will help provide supportive housing South Los Angeles, an area with a very high homeless rate. Thirteen of the 74 units will be designated for homeless veterans.More than 20 million households across the country pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing. Eleven million are paying more than 50 percent of their income for housing. Freddie Mac and NEF are working together to address this vast and growing need through the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program. This effort is designed to make homes possible for millions of families and individuals by providing mortgage capital to lenders. Read more here.

Around… read more Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder Published 9:40 pm Tuesday, February 16, 2010 “Suddenly military” is a term that is becoming all too familiar to families all across the country. It’s a term that children might not recognize, but they understand its meaning.“Families can be rocking along in their daily routine and suddenly, everything changes,” said Tammy Powell, Pike County Extension coordinator. “One day their lives are normal and the next day they are involved in the military and everything is different.”Powell was speaking of the activation and deployment of National Guard and Reserve units in the War Against Terror.center_img Powell said communication is important for children because it helps them cope with the stresses of a parent being away and with the military.“Suggested items for the packs include postage stamps, envelopes, journals, disposable cameras, photo albums, prepaid phone cards, gift cards, markers, crayons — just anything that will encourage and support communication between the parent and child,” Powell said. “Stuffed animals are also recommended for younger children.”The Pike County 4-H Council is making worry dolls to be included in the packs.“The idea for the worry dolls comes from Guatemala,” Powell said. “It’s a custom there to put a worry doll under your pillow at night and, when you wake the next morning, the worry will be gone. It’s just something different that we are adding to our packs.” Suddenly military Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The Pike County 4-H council is inviting the Pike County community to participate in the Hero Pack program by donation items or by attending its “Packing” program at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 20 at the Troy Recreation Center.Donated items may be dropped off at the Pike County Extension Office on South Three Notch Street in Troy or brought to the “Packing” program on Saturday.“We invited anyone who would like to participate to join us,” Powell said. “It’s a good program and children and their deployed parents will benefit.” Next Up“Children are used to their parents drilling on weekends but when a unit is activated, that means that daddy or mama won’t be coming home for months,” she said. “The family’s life changes and that change often causes children great worry.”For that reason, the Pike County 4-H Council is participating in “Operation Military Kids Hero Pack” as its community service activity.“As a participant in ‘Operation Military Kids Hero Pack,’ we are collecting items to fill backpacks for about 50 kids who have a parent who has been deployed or soon will be,” Powell said. “These are primarily communication packs that will keep the kid and his or her parent in touch with each other during the deployment.” Email the author Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
