Have £1k to invest? I think the HSBC share price could crush the FTSE 100 this year

first_img Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended HSBC Holdings and Lloyds Banking Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Have £1k to invest? I think the HSBC share price could crush the FTSE 100 this year “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” If you’ve £1,000 to invest, or any other lump sum, there’s a huge choice out there. Right now, the FTSE 100 index is packed full of bargain stocks, many of them trading on dirt-cheap valuations, while offering generous yields.HSBC looks cheap right nowYou only have to look at global banking giant HSBC Holdings (LSE: HSBA) to see what I mean. This mighty operation, which has a market-cap totalling almost £114bn, currently trades at just 10.9 times forward earnings, well below the FTSE 100 average of just over 18 times earnings. HSBC is trading at a large discount to its blue-chip peers right now. So why is that?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…One reason is HSBC generates a huge chunk of its earnings from China and Hong Kong, and has been caught in the political crossfire during recent democracy protests. These have been going on for months. HSBC has seen its buildings daubed with red paint and been hit by other forms of vandalism after being accused of working with Chinese authorities to cut off funding for protesters.In situations like these, companies have to tread a thin line, with the risk of political threats on one side, and reputational damage on the other. As if that wasn’t enough, the bank has also been caught on the frontline of the US-China trade war. The HSBC share price has reflected this concern, falling 13% in the last six months. Less exposure to BrexitHSBC, like all the UK-listed banks, was also caught up in last year’s Brexit uncertainty, although that now seems to be easing. Brexit is less of a concern for HSBC than FTSE 100 rival Lloyds Banking Group, which has far more exposure to the UK, and far less overseas diversification.Multinationals like HSBC will always face geopolitical problems, but current concerns could actually be a great opportunity to buy this stock, provided you intend to hold on for the longer run. One benefit, as I mentioned, is the bargain entry price. Another is that you also get a whopping dividend income, with the stock forecast to yield an income worth 6.8% a year in the months ahead.To put that into perspective, the FTSE 100 as a whole currently yields just 4.34%. At this rate, if you reinvest your HSBC dividends back into your stock, you will double your money in less than 11 years, even if the share price doesn’t rise at all in that time. I suspect it will though.Growth and income over the longer runThis is a business with strong operating margins of 38.5%. Earnings are forecast to dip 1% this year, but rise 11% in 2021.My reasons for recommending HSBC now are twofold. First, I think the share price is due some kind of snapback. It may take two or three years, but it’s worth positioning yourself ahead of that. Second, you get a juicy income while you wait.How long should you hold HSBC’s stock? Forever sounds about right.

It’s Scotland against the rest as battle with World Rugby is imminent

first_imgWednesday Oct 16, 2019 It’s Scotland against the rest as battle with World Rugby is imminent Japan’s match against Scotland last Sunday in Yokohama was undoubtedly one of the matches of the Rugby World Cup so far and one of the best moments when the final whistle blew. But the events that have surrounded that match have been far from pleasant.ADVERTISEMENTWith Typhoon Hagibis looming, there were chances that the game last week would be cancelled, which caused Scottish Rugby to threaten legal action against World Rugby as it would have deprived them of a chance of making the quarter-finals.In the wake of the match, which Japan won 28-21, comments made by Scottish Rugby Union chief executive Mark Dodson have been referred to an independent disputes committee.Scotland have recently responded to this, releasing a statement that says: “Scottish Rugby is querying whether the matter is an appropriate one for the bringing of Misconduct charges.”This entire saga has caused a fervent reaction from the rugby world on social media, with many Scottish fans backing the SRU’s response, and criticising World Rugby, particularly for their contingency plan ahead of the typhoon. Many think that this was simply to cancel the match, which is what happened to three other contests at the RWC.https://twitter.com/ColinFTay/status/1184313835827499008?s=20Tell World Rugby to stick it!— Lachlan McLean (@LachlanDMcLean) October 16, 2019However, Scottish fans may be on their own in this circumstance, as fans from elsewhere seem to be behind World Rugby.ADVERTISEMENTThe death toll of Typhoon Hagibis is currently 68 at the time of writing, and some feel that Scotland did not cover themselves in glory in how they handled themselves in the build-up to the match. It would have been desperately unfortunate had they failed to make it out of the pool due to a game being cancelled, but regardless of the contingency plans, there were more pressing matters at hand.Of course, World Rugby have been criticised themselves after this whole episode, but in their battle with Scottish Rugby, they seem to have a lot of support as well.https://twitter.com/L7HNS/status/1184311244322263042?s=20Ultimately, this entire back and forth between the SRU and World Rugby was not necessary, as the Scots failed to win, and their problems only look set to get worse.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Cancer Research bracelets sold on for profit on eBay

first_imgThe Sun reports that fundraising bracelets designed by celebrities to raise funds for Cancer Research UK are being sold on by individuals on eBay for personal profit.Just two weeks after the charm bracelets, a collaboration between Cancer Research UK and high street store Wallis, went on sale to raise funds for the charity, some have appeared for sale on eBay at £80, up to five times their original value.Only 10,000 of the bracelets were produced and they all sold out at £15 within 24 hours via the Wallis website. The involvement of celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Jemima Khan, Damien Hirst, and Jimmy Choo and the fact that the bracelets are a limited edition has clearly driven up their value.

Some of the bracelets on sale on eBay are, it seems, being sold to raise further funds for Cancer Research UK. Other sellers though are clearly selling for personal profit. Only two of the 13 items currently listed on eBay were being sold on explicitly for charity.Although eBay helps many charities raise funds, it has been used by individuals to make personal profit out of charity items. Numerous charity wristbands have been sold on the site for personal gain, and eBay for a while was used by individuals to sell their free tickets to the Live8 concert earlier this year.  88 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 22 September 2005 | Newscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Cancer Research bracelets sold on for profit on eBay Tagged with: Tradinglast_img read more

TCU aims to help students with on-campus resources

first_imgLinkedin Twitter Sydney Ringdahlhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sydney-ringdahl/ printTCU wants students to thrive on campus, and it provides various resources to help them do that.Some of these resources include the Writing Center, the Center for Career and Professional Development and the Counseling and Mental Health Center.The Writing Center provides feedback on all aspects of writing, including structure, content, style and grammar concerns. Students can submit essays, reports and more for feedback.Students can schedule face-to-face appointments or submit their work online to be reviewed.“I use the online option a lot because it’s convenient, helpful and my work is sent back timely,” Ali Achord, sophomore child development major, said. “The feedback always strengthens my writing.”The main center is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Reed Hall, suite 419. Night hours are Sunday-Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the second floor commons conference room of Tom Brown-Pete Wright.The Center for Career and Professional Development helps students prepare for life after college and assist alumni through career transitions.“The Career Center has been extremely helpful during my first year of college,” first-year student Michelle Lowell said. “They provided me resources to help improve my interview skills and write an impressive résumé.”Through career advising, workshops, conferences and career fairs, the Career Center helps students and alumni develop job-search and career decision-making skills they will use in college and beyond.The Career Center’s primary office is located in Jarvis Hall.

This elimination provides more space for students applying regular decision since early action applications allowed students to apply earlier in the process but do not require them to commit to TCU. Early decision applications do require a commitment to enroll when the application is sent it. Both options only look at transcripts through students junior year whereas regular decision also looks at students’ transcripts from the fall of their senior year.The staff additionally removed the deadline to achieve broader diversity on campus, according to Einstein as research conducted by the office of admission concluded that students of color predominately apply during the regular decision timeline.“The January first deadline did not provide efficient time for admission counselors to make the best decisions,” Einstein said.The deadline occurred during winter break and did not allow applicants and admission faculty to effectively communicate to complete applications, according to Einstein.The faculty to student ratio will now also be taken into consideration when reviewing applications, according to Einstein.“Greater academic balance means being more mindful of intended majors,” Einstein said. “After speaking with faculty and deans, we learned that there are programs that are way oversubscribed and majors that are way undersubscribed.”Regional Director of Admission Caitlin Provost said the collaborative environment the Office of Admission fosters, embodies the TCU mission statement.“I like that the TCU admission center is collaborative in a sense that we have goals as an admission office to bring in the best possible class that we can,” Provost said. “I think it speaks to TCU’s mission because it is a collaborative-community based school.”The admission goals are influenced by different areas of campus. The TCU Board of Trustees serves as the main influence on admission goals but campus-wide discussions shape the goals as well, according to Einstein.There will be a slight increase in the incoming first-year class of students. The decision to increase the number of undergraduates was set by the Board of Trustees’ goal of having 9,500 undergraduate students.“We don’t want to do it all at once,” Einstein said. “Doing it incrementally and methodically allows for appropriate planning in other parts of the university — making sure there’s enough housing for everybody.”As of last fall, there were 9,011 undergraduates, according to the 2017 Fact Book. Maya Bulger is a junior at Texas Christian University from Detroit, Michigan. Maya is pursuing a major in journalism and a minor in business.

Bloody Sunday: How the events of that day unfolded

first_img Guidelines for reopening of hospitality sector published Calls for maternity restrictions to be lifted at LUH By News Highland – June 15, 2010 WhatsApp Business Matters Ep 45 – Boyd Robinson, Annette Houston & Michael Margey Google+ WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News Facebook At the outset of 1972, the security situation in Northern Ireland was fast spiralling out of control.The Troubles had broken out four years earlier when police in Derry clashed with civil rights protesters demanding an end to discriminatory housing and voting practices against Roman Catholics.Within 12 months British soldiers were deployed on to the streets of the province following a summer of violent sectarian clashes between Protestants and Catholics.Two years later, in a bid to break the republican paramilitary movement, the unionist-dominated Stormont government introduced internment.The policy of detention without trial had the opposite effect: angering the nationalist community and increasing support for the IRA.The Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association (Nicra) called for an end to the powers and protests were organised across the country, many ending in ugly clashes with the authorities.On introducing internment, Stormont also banned large public assemblies and processions for six months.This rendered all the subsequent civil rights demonstrations illegal gatherings.A week before Bloody Sunday, soldiers fired plastic bullets and CS gas at protesters at one of these events on Magilligan Strand near Derry city. Four days later, two RUC officers were shot dead by republicans in the nationalist Creggan area of the city.While tensions in Derry were high as the morning of January 30 arrived, few could have predicted the bloodshed that followed.It was just after lunch time when demonstrators started assembling in the Creggan for the latest Nicra protest march – this time the destination was the city’s Guildhall.2.50pm:Due to get under way at 2pm, the start is delayed by 50 minutes to accommodate the steady stream of late arrivals. Marchers leave Creggan Drive and set off for the city centre, with hundreds joining in at almost every turn.3.25pm:The march passes the Bogside Inn bar and continues on to William Street. Estimates at the size of demonstration at this point vary. Organisers claimed up to 20,000 people were involved, while the Widgery Inquiry into the killings put it at a more conservative 3,000 to 5,000.3.45pm:With the Army having erected barricades blocking the way to the Guildhall, the main body of the march turns left on to Rossville Street toward the revised rallying point at the famous Free Derry corner at the entrance to the nationalist Bogside estate. A number break off and continue down William Street to confront soldiers at a barricade. Some rioting ensues. Minor clashes between stone throwers and security forces at this junction were commonplace, with locals dubbing the area “aggro corner”.3.55pm:Before the main shooting incident and at a location away from both the riot and march, two soldiers in a derelict building on William Street fire a number of rounds after claiming they had come under attack. Two men were injured. One of them, 59-year-old John Johnston, died six months later and is widely acknowledged as the 14th victim of Bloody Sunday. An Official IRA member is believed to have fired at the building during this incident, but whether it was before or after the soldiers shot is a matter of contention.3.56pm:Rioters disperse from William Street after the Army deploy water cannons.Paratroopers request permission to commence an arrest operation on those who had fled down Chamberlain Street and Rossville Street.4.07pm:A company of paratroopers, led by Major Ted Loden, is given an order to start arresting any remaining rioters in William Street. But they are told not to engage in a running battle down Rossville Street.4.10pm:The soldiers open fire on people in the area of Rossville flats.Where the victims were shot:Car park of Rossville flats: Jackie Duddy.Forecourt on the other side of the flats: Pat Doherty, Barney McGuigan.Rubble barricade on Rossville Street beside the flats: Hugh Gilmour, Kevin McElhinney, Michael Kelly, John Young, William Nash and Michael McDaid.Glenfada Park on other side of Rossville Street: James Wray, Gerald Donaghey, Gerald McKinney and William McKinney (not related).4.40pm:The shooting ends. As well as the 13 fatalities, 14 others were wounded. Twenty one soldiers fired in the incident, expending 108 rounds in total. The Army claims it came under fire in the Rossville flats area, allegedly by the Provisional IRA. Eyewitnesses insist none of the dead were armed. Rumours since circulated that others died on the day – namely PIRA gunmen – whose bodies were spirited away by fellow provisionals and secretly buried.

Wendell Mitchell, D-Luverne, earned the endorsement of Pike County officials and agriculture representatives on Tuesday.Sen. Wendell Mitchell received endorsements Tuesday from local farmers and other Pike County leaders during a press conference at Cattleman Park.Mitchell represents Senate District 30, which includes Pike, Butler and Crenshaw counties and parts of Autauga, Elmore and Lowndes counties. He is seeking re-election to his eighth four-year term.John Dorrill, president of the Pike County Farmers Federation, spoke of Mitchell’s support for agriculture and rural Alabama.Dorrill said that Mitchell sponsored and helped pass a bill important to cattle producers that updated the state veterinarian’s responsibilities to include the care of livestock and strengthened penalities for animal cruelty by establishing minimum fines for repeat offenders.The law precludes local and county governments from establishing a patchwork of different laws governing livestock care and handling.“Without this protection farmers could see regulations enacted that would cripple the state’s livestock industry and hinder economic growth,” Dorrill said.Mitchell sponsored a bill that now allows law enforcement officers to seize equipment in the possession of a person charged with a felony offense involving the theft of timber or lumber.“Sen. Mitchell also sponsored a bill that changed audit requirements of producer-funded checkoff programs so that the audits can be conducted every two years rather than annually, saving thousands of dollars in accounting fees each year,” Dorrill said.Bill Hixon, a Pike County Farmers Federation and Pike County Cattlemen’s Association board member, said that had it not been for Mitchell’s support of Cattleman Park, it might not have become a reality.“Sen. Mitchell provided seed money for the project and that is just the tip of the iceberg of what he has done for the people of Pike County,” he said.“He has helped organizations from one end of the county to the other. He has made a positive difference for the people of Pike County.Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas said Mitchell has been a strong supporter of law enforcement for 28 years.“Sen. Mitchell is a statesman in every sense of the word,” Thomas said. “He is an outstanding example of what a state senator should be. We need wisdom and experience in our senator. We need Wendell Mitchell.”Mitchell expressed appreciation for the endorsements and pledged his continued support over the next four years.“Six months ago, I couldn’t be certain that I would be standing here addressing re-election,” Mitchell said in reference to his recent illness.“I have been blessed by God and with so many prayers. I’m ready to continue to serve.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Latest Stories Published 9:09 pm Tuesday, September 14, 2010last_img read more
