Making sure you’re buying the best UK shares is a challenge at the moment. The coronavirus crisis has seriously impacted the global economy, plunging the UK into recession. Whole industries have been turned upside down, and are still reeling from the effects of the virus.However, I believe now could be a great time to buy shares in great UK companies. You just have to pick carefully. Here’s what I’d buy now.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…BritvicBritvic (LSE: BVIC) shares have been on a bit of a downward spiral in the year-to-date, dropping by 6%. This fall in share price means the price-to-earnings ratio is just 14, which I think makes now a great buying opportunity for UK based investors.The drinks manufacturer has strong brands in its portfolio, such as Robinsons, R Whites and J2O. It also has exclusive agreements to make and distribute drinks on behalf of Pepsico. To give an idea of the size of the company, every minute in Great Britain 17,600 Britvic drinks are bought.The business has been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. In its Q3 trading update, which covers the period to the end of June, revenue declined by 16.3% on last year. However, a drop in out-of-home consumption was offset by strong growth in at-home consumption. This meant that the company saw market value share gains in all business units.As we’re slowly seeing life turn back to normal, I don’t think it will e btoo long before Britvic’s revenue reaches pre-coronavirus levels. I’d buy this UK share now while it still looks cheap.Another great UK share to buy?Games Workshop (LSE: GAW) is a company I love, mainly for its unique products, high margins and loyal customer base. If you aren’t familiar with Games Workshop, the company makes fantasy miniatures and licenses its product out. It is often seen by prospective buyers as a growth gem. The UK-based company’s share price has risen 51% in the year-to-date, despite temporarily closing its doors due to Covid-19. In its latest results, released last month, the company posted a 10% jump in profit for the year ending 31 May. Its sales were up by 5% in the year.Despite its rapid growth — 1,500% in the past five years — I don’t think it’s too late to buy Games Workshop shares. Although currently on the expensive side, the opportunity to license its product out offers a chance to push its revenue growth further. The business also opened 23 new stores in the financial year.Although I’d rather buy the shares at a much cheaper level, I don’t think this is a realistic prospect. Following the coronavirus crisis, I think that Games Workshop has proved it is one of the more resilient UK businesses, and for that reason, I believe its shares are worth buying at today’s price.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 14th October, 2020 | More on: RSA SBRY “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img The stock market crash has caused weak investor sentiment towards a range of UK shares. As such, many of them trade at cheap prices that may not reflect their long-term profit potential.Buying them today may not produce impressive returns over a matter of months. However, the prospects for an improving economic outlook could lead them to higher share prices 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…With that in mind, here are two British shares that appear to be undervalued at the present time. Buying them could improve your ISA’s prospects.Recovery potential after the stock market crashThe Sainsbury’s (LSE: SBRY) share price has declined in the stock market crash along with other FTSE 100 retailers. It currently trades 6% lower than at the start of the year.However, its financial performance has been relatively robust. Its first-quarter trading statement showed a rise in retail sales of 8.5%, although higher costs mean that it is due to post a 7% decline in net profit in the current year.Looking ahead, Sainsbury’s is forecast to return to profit growth next year. Its earnings are due to rise by 6%, which puts it on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10.5. This suggests that it offers good value for money, and may have scope to deliver a recovery as investor sentiment improves after the stock market crash.The business has invested heavily in increasing its online presence across its grocery operations and within Argos. This could allow it to capitalise on consumer trends that are likely to shift towards digital sales. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the company while investor sentiment remains weak.Growth at a reasonable priceRSA (LSE: RSA) also appears to offer good value for money relative to other FTSE 100 shares after the stock market crash. The insurance business trades on a P/E ratio of 10.2. This suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety, since it is forecast to post a rise in net profit of 11% next year.The company’s recent half-year results showed that it has delivered a resilient performance despite an uncertain operating environment. The impact of coronavirus on its operating profit was broadly neutral. It has produced an improved underwriting performance, while its various regions are performing relatively well.Clearly, the threat of a second stock market crash could hold back the RSA share price in the short run. A weak economic outlook may also delay the return of its dividend payments. However, its wide margin of safety and solid operational performance suggest that it offers long-term return potential. As such, now could be the right time to buy it alongside a diverse range of shares within a tax-efficient account such as an ISA. Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Tigers THE BIG ONE – Davies

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Scarlets Head Coach – Nigel DaviesThe Scarlets face “our biggest game in the last three years” when they clash with Leicester Tigers at Parc y Scarlets in a crucial Heineken Cup Pool 5 showdown on Saturday evening.Only three points separate the top three in a tight and hugely competitive Pool 5, the Welsh region two points clear of the Tigers with Perpignan just another point adrift and still very much in the quarter-final qualification mix.“No shadow of doubt about it, this is the biggest game we have faced in the last three years,” said Scarlets head coach Nigel Davies. “What makes this match against Leicester Tigers so huge is the fact that we have not been in this sort of position in the Heineken Cup during the time I have been back here and now we have 15 points from three wins with two matches to play.“Naturally we are extremely pleased to have earned those 15 points – it was what we had targeted at this stage, so at least we are on course – while always realising you have to win your home games in the Heineken Cup. We are delighted to be where we are at the top of the group but we have worked hard to put ourselves in this position and we deserved to be there.”“However, we appreciate that Leicester have an enormous amount of experience – on and off the pitch – and for them to come through those top end games, as they so regularly do, is huge as it certainly builds belief and confidence in a side. But we are at home, where we have a very good home record, and we all know we let ourselves down in the Round 2 match at Welford Road.”“This match coming up is both a great fixture and a very exciting one and we will have to be at the top of our game to get anything out of the contest.” TAGS: Leicester TigersScarlets The Scarlets crashed to a 46-10 defeat at Leicester back in October, leaking six tries overall and 33 points in the second half alone, but have won at home against Perpignan and done the home and away double over Italian champions Benetton Treviso.For their part former double Heineken Cup champions Leicester had to be content with a share of the points against Perpignan at Welford Road in Round 4 when the French club had the last word with a 78th minute Nicolas Laharrague penalty goal.“Against Leicester in Round 2 we were very competitive in the first half but then during a 15 minute period in the second half we had the ball but didn’t deal with the pressure they put us under and if you give a side like that half chances they generally take them and punish you,” said Davies. “It was a high intensity game against one of the best teams in Europe and we expect more of the same on Saturday, when we know we cannot afford to let our game slip for a single second.”“Despite that result, and our recent performance against the Ospreys, we believe we are going in the right direction in the long process of developing the competitive group of players we now have.” “Our home match against Perpignan, which produced nine tries, was a fabulous game of rugby but the away game against Treviso has been the most pleasing. Everyone knows Treviso is a very difficult place to go and win – Leicester only won there with virtually the last play of the game – and we went there with a relatively inexperienced team and came away with a hugely significant try bonus point to go with the four for the win.”“In the Heineken Cup bonus points are massive and, come the end of Round 6, they can, and often do, make all the difference.”last_img read more

On the picket line

first_imgAdvance Auto Parts workers in Pa. vote unionAdvance Auto Parts workers in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., cast their ballots overwhelmingly in favor of joining the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA) Sept. 9-10. With 476 workers eligible to vote for Local 1310, the union won 291 to 131.This reversed an election the union lost in 2017 after AAP’s anti-union campaign. Warehouse worker Mario Cabrera said AAP used a smokescreen of “empty promises” to win, but the workers soon realized their mistake when AAP failed to perform. “Our situation didn’t improve after the first election, and that’s why so many more of us voted for LiUNA in this election and are excited for LiUNA representation,” said Cabrera. (berksmontnews.com, Sept. 14)Less than 1 percent of AAP’s total 71,000 full-time and part-time workforce at 5,000 distribution centers and retail stores in North America are union. These workers, who make $12 to $18 an hour, are struggling under rising health insurance costs and mandatory overtime demands. (Labor 411, Sept. 16) The next step for Local 1310 is demands for better pay, health insurance and working conditions. AAP can afford it; the Fortune 500 company had sales last year of approximately $9.4 billion and a net income of $476 million. (Morning Call, Sept. 13) This victory shows AAP bosses that workers’ solidarity beats back empty promises!‘Bourbon goes down easy, but workers don’t’As thousands swarmed Bardstown, Ky., Sept. 16-22 to celebrate the Kentucky Bourbon festival, 53 workers at Four Roses Bourbon in Lawrenceburg and Cox Creek went on strike. They’re represented by Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Locals 10D and 23D and Service Employees 32BJ National Conference of Firemen and Oilers Local 320. The workers were totally opposed to Four Roses’ proposal to create a two-tier health care system, which would give experienced workers better benefits than new workers. (Fightback News, Sept. 22) Jeff Royalty, president of UFCW Local 10D, told In These Times that the proposal was designed to “short change the next generation.”Other unions, such as UFCW Local 951, pledged support through press releases and petitions. To paraphrase one union flyer: “Four Roses Bourbon goes down easy; its workers don’t.” Two weeks later, on Sept. 21, the Four Roses workers won an agreement that included two choices for health care coverage for all workers, as well as wage increases of 30 to 50 cents an hour and a signing bonus totaling $3,500. (Louisville Courier-Journal, Sept. 21)Union victory for Columbia U. postdoctoral workers!Over 2,000 postdoctoral and research workers at Columbia University in New York City created history on Oct. 2 when they became the first group of such workers to unionize at a private university. The National Labor Relations Board “determined that the work of a postdoc — a person who holds a doctorate degree and works to perform further research in collaboration with faculty members — is indistinguishable from that of other University employees,” noted the Columbia Spectator on Oct. 4. The newly formed union will be known as Columbia Postdoctoral Workers-United Auto Workers Local 2110.Despite the university’s strenuous opposition to CPW-UAW, Alvaro Cuesta-Dominguez, CPW organizing committee member, told the newspaper: “We made history. We would like to expand our voice to the national level,” particularly for federal science funding and making research “more equitable and diverse.” In addition to fighting for higher pay, the union wants more detailed sexual harassment grievance procedures and assistance with immigration and visa issues. Meanwhile, the university has refused to negotiate with graduate students, who voted to unionize in 2016, struck last April and are threatening to strike again.EEOC sues Texas resort for discriminationLa Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas, was slapped with an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission suit Sept. 24. The suit alleges the resort created a hostile work environment by discriminating against Latinx workers in violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. After the resort was taken over by DH San Antonio Management LLC and Destination Hotels and Resorts LLC, Destination instituted a policy in fall 2014 forbidding Latinx banquet staff from speaking Spanish on the premises, though no other languages were forbidden. The head manager mocked workers for speaking Spanish, while another called it a “foul language.”After more than two dozen workers protested, some were harassed and then fired. EEOC regional attorney Robert A. Canino noted that instituting a discriminatory language policy on top of verbal abuse ”strongly indicates workplace prejudice rather than a legitimate business need.” (eeoc.gov, Sept. 24)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Senate Banking Committee Chairman Calls for More Accountability from Fed

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Congressional Oversight Federal Reserve Richard Shelby Senate Banking Committee 2015-03-06 Brian Honea Representative Richard Shelby (R-Alabama), Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, expressed the need for more oversight and accountability from the Federal Reserve during a full committee hearing earlier this week.The topic of Fed oversight and accountability has become a contentious one in recent months. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) introduced a bill in January known as “Audit the Fed,” which calls for full transparency from the central bank.Earlier this week in the committee hearing on Federal Reserve Accountability and Reform, Shelby explained why he believed the Fed should be made more accountable.”Many of the Fed’s actions since the financial crisis have emphasized the need for greater accountability,” Shelby said. “The Fed has undertaken three rounds of quantitative easing and grown its balance sheet to a staggering $4.5 trillion. Although the Fed has concluded new bond purchases, it has not begun to unwind its balance sheet. It has also kept its target interest rate close to zero percent for more than six years. After these unprecedented actions, how will the Fed measure its impact on the economy?”Shelby went on to say that it is “not clear” when the Fed will explain this and other measures such as what indicators it will use to determine when it should unwind its balance sheet.”The Fed should not only be able to answer these questions, it should be held accountable for its actions,” Shelby said.Democrats have repeatedly resisted any legislation that calls for further scrutiny of the Fed’s activity. In December, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said she would “forcefully” oppose any type of Audit the Fed bill, telling reporters that “I do think central bank independence is very important. . . to make sure we can make the decisions we think are best.”While Democrats have stressed the Fed’s need for independence, Shelby said he doesn’t believe independence makes the central bank exempt from Congressional oversight.”After all, Congress wrote the statute that created the Fed and sets forth its policy objectives,” Shelby said. “The United States Congress created the Federal Reserve System to perform a specific set of functions. While the Fed is an important institution, it is not beyond the reach of Congressional oversight. Therefore, it is entirely appropriate that Congress periodically review the Fed’s structure and authorities.” Related Articles Senate Banking Committee Chairman Calls for More Accountability from Fed March 6, 2015 1,300 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: Congressional Oversight Federal Reserve Richard Shelby Senate Banking Committee Sign up for DS News Daily Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Dorman Grace stumps in Pike County

first_img With the Republican Primary runoff only days away, Dorman Grace is taking his campaign for Commission of Agriculture and Industries to the people.Taking a cue from yesteryear’s politicians who “stumped” across the country shaking hands, kissing babies and looking folks right in the eyes in an effort to win their votes, Grace is traveling the state speaking to crowds from the back of a pickup truck.The “Farmers Pickup Support for Grace” caravan was in Troy on Thursday and Grace took the opportunity to have lunch with area farmers and then spoke to locals from the bed of a caravan pickup truck carrying peaches from Chilton County. Published 10:19 pm Thursday, July 8, 2010 Grace, a third generation poultry farmer from Walker County, said he is not a career politician rather an “ol’ farm boy.”He compared the “Farmers Pickup” caravan that is making stump stops from Huntsville to Dothan to picking cotton.“We’re going up one row and down another hoping to pick up votes,” Grace said with a smile and then explained why he wants the job. “I want to make sure that agriculture stays viable in the state of Alabama because it’s our number one industry. As Commissioner of Agriculture, my priorities will be creating jobs, cutting spending and maintaining a safe food supply.”Grace said the job of the Commission of Agriculture and Industries is a far reaching one and affects every person in the state, “from the food we eat to the gas we pump.” Skip Book Nook to reopen Print Article Latest Stories By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… By The Penny Hoarder Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Riley to the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries Board in 2003 so he knows the role the department plays in food safety.“He will be a fresh face in agriculture leadership and will be able to relate to the new crowd that is wanting change. He will bring new ideas and new energy to the Commission and initiate progressive programs that will benefit all of us.”Goshen farmer Bill Sanders said he has known Grace for a long time and he has the ability to do a good, fair and honest job as agriculture commissioner.“Dorman will listen to the issues and act on them,” Sanders said. “He’s the man we need as Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries.” Sponsored Content Dorman Grace stumps in Pike Countylast_img read more
