The best shares to buy during lockdown? Here’s what I think

first_img 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. The best shares to buy during lockdown? Here’s what I think As much of the UK moves into Lockdown 2.0, I think I should be focusing on investments that are relatively safe. That means companies that are unaffected by lockdown and that have strong balance sheets. These kind of shares are less risky and that’s why I think they are the best shares to buy during extreme situations.Supermarket sweepThe supermarkets have emerged as relative winners from the pandemic and lockdown. In the UK, none come bigger than Tesco (LSE: TSCO). As non-essential shops, bars and restaurants have been forced to shut their doors, our spending has inevitably shifted to the supermarkets. And online delivery means that we don’t even need to leave our homes.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…Tesco’s first-half results (up to end of August) showed that group revenue rose 7%, largely due to increased food sales. Sales rose strongest during the first lockdown period back in the spring, which bodes well for the current lockdown and any more thereafter. Its online business seems to have benefited the most, with second-quarter (spring) sales surging 90% from the year before.  Tesco is in process of selling its Thai and Malaysian businesses. This should bring in around £8bn, of which £5bn will be returned to shareholders in the form of a special dividend. Looking at the current share price, that implies a 20%+ payout. And that’s on top of the current dividend yield of around 4%. Quite frankly, that seems too good to be true. It’s what makes it, in my opinion, one of the best shares to buy now.First-half net profits were up 44% from last year, at £465m. Impressively, that’s after over £500m of Covid-related expenses. With these such costs already incurred, and with greater experience of the Covid operating environment, margins should improve in the second half. Directing expenditure away from its clothing business and towards food should improve profits further. Taking all that into account, I think Tesco shares look really attractive.Consumer staples among the best shares to buy nowAnother safe company in the current climate is McBride (LSE: MCB), I feel. It manufactures a range of cleaning and personal care products, from hand sanitiser and bleach, to aerosols and dishwasher tablets. As well as selling products under its own brands, the group also produces products on behalf of other companies.The pandemic and subsequent focus on hygiene have been a real boon to the company’s sales. Bleach and surface cleaning sales rose by 15% in the six months to the end of June, while sales of dishwasher tablets and liquids were up 13%. With there being little evidence of the pandemic abating any time soon, I think this focus on hygiene is here to stay. That should boost McBride’s revenues for the foreseeable future.£10m worth of exceptional items dragged full-year profits below those of the year before. But without these, profits would have been much healthier and the shares would actually look cheap. A new company strategy centres around increasing revenues to €1bn by 2025. That’s 27% above last year’s revenues. If this growth materialises, then it should feed through to the bottom line. To top it off, McBride also plans to buy back up to 10% of its own shares in the next year. And that’s why I think it’s another one of the best shares to buy now.

Special treatment hurts both church and state

first_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI By Tom EhrichPosted Jan 18, 2012 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC January 20, 2012 at 6:33 pm Rt. Rev. Sir: Your statement itself lacks knowledge and research. It is, in fact, prejudicial to one side of a fair question. Tom’s article makes a point and is without fault in the sense that it has a place in the conversation about the 21st century church. I agree to the extent that we are way over structured with 80% vacant buildings on Sunday mornings, diminishing resources and inflated diocesan budgets well beyond congregational ability to support. How about returning to the celtic model of traveling prebyter-bishops without dioceses. Just think, you could work out of your house or out of your car. Even a very high level excutive sales manager like my son works from home and communicates digitally. Oh well. Go ahead keep fixing up an old car. Eventually it’s no more repairable and has to be thrown away. That’s where the church is heading. Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem January 20, 2012 at 4:40 pm Tom is a well-meaning, but not legally learned person. As one of our most famous jurists has observed, “the power to tax is the power to destroy.” Because it is quintessentially un-American to destroy a religion, we give them fairly free range. A little more research and, if I may say so, fact-checking, would give these columns more substance. It is something like an embarrassment for ENS to carry this column.Paul MarshallBishop, Diocese of Bethelehem Rector Knoxville, TN (The Rev.) Ronald L.

Second, it isn’t an either/or situation. A church building ideally is a center for mission and ministry, some of which might not happen in the absence of a buildingAs far as tax-deductible donations go, I’m at a loss as to see how dropping churches from that would help. It would seem like people would then prefer to donate to charities rather than the church. If people are stewardship-minded, they aren’t going to consider the tax-exemption when pledging. If they are not, no tax-exemption or lack thereof is going to make them tithe or increase their giving. Personally, I’ll take all of the help from the government I can get….

They play by their own special rules, the court reasoned, saying, in effect, that the so-called “separation clause” guards religion’s right to do the wrong thing.Unfortunately, just as presidential candidates use religion to batter opponents and to appeal to the dark side of human nature, so will religion become an excuse to seek other exceptions to civil rights. If churches can discriminate, others will say, why can’t we? Bigots and unjust employers will have an open field for hurting the vulnerable.Meanwhile, religion will stand out as a special preserve where children can be molested without legal consequence, and the usual rules of financial accountability and simple justice don’t apply. That won’t help religion’s cause one bit.Their historic exemption from property taxes has encouraged faith communities to see property as their purpose, not mission and ministry. Many a church has clung to deteriorating facilities while mission languished and people seeking more than maintenance budgets departed. Finally the church closes its doors — and the community evaporates.Yes, religious facilities have contributed much to architecture and scenic street corners, but both religion and society would be better served if those institutions saw their purpose as mission, their work as offering ministry, and each other as companions in a movement, not as disputatious property owners.Tax-deductible donations, meanwhile, have virtually destroyed responsible Christian stewardship in many major denominations. Instead of following the biblical model of “harvest giving” and the biblical standard of the tithe, churches have fallen into treating their donations as “charitable giving.” Instead of first fruits, they get last fruits, whatever remains after everything else has been purchased.Churches end up competing with museums, schools and medical causes for leftovers. That is a competition they cannot possibly win, because they don’t have the budget to do charitable fundraising effectively and religion’s prophetic cause — “comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable” — isn’t as appealing as good music or fighting cancer.To protect tax exemption, religious leaders refrain from meddling in society’s doings. The Gospel demands such meddling. Society needs boldness, not self-protective hedging, from its faith communities. It needs strong preachers in the public square, even if that means violating the first rule of charitable giving: Be nice to the wealthy.That weakened voice, in turn, deprives society of the ethical guidance that it badly needs. Not shrill scolding on esoterica, but bold words on justice and compassionate deeds to bind up society’s victims.Whatever Thomas Jefferson meant by “separation of church and state,” it’s clear from our own history that we need God to be more active in the public square, not walled up in a special tax-sheltered preserve where, in exchange for staying silent, the religious are free to discriminate, play landowner and appease the wealthy.Our special status has made us soft and, to our growing dismay, irrelevant.— Tom Ehrich, a church consultant and Episcopal priest, is the author of “Just Wondering, Jesus” and founder of the Church Wellness Project.

Terrill says: January 20, 2012 at 5:09 pm Thank you! I hope your essay sparks a great deal of good, rational debate. You make many really good points. This discussion is desperately needed. As a stewardship leader and teacher for many decades, as someone who personally uncovered and helped reveal three embezzlements, starting with Ellen Cooke nationally (I was told to get out of 815 for truth-telling in ’91) and two parochial incidents, I am acutely aware of bad money management practices at all levels of the church hidden under laziness and false trust. We have a major reasons in mission and ethical witness to be held very financially accountable by church and state. As well, tax laws have allowed dying churches to let properties help turn neighborhoods worse; been there seen that my entire professional ministry. Comments are closed. Rector Washington, DC Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL January 20, 2012 at 5:56 pm Thank you Tom for prompting a needed discussion. Things taken for granted need to be brought out of the dark at regular intervals to be appreciated and maybe even re-envigourated. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID (The Rev.) Ronald L. Reed says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Eric Funston says: New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Martinsville, VA January 21, 2012 at 8:07 am I respect Tom Ehrich a lot, but this article misses the mark by a long-shot – he overstates his case. While there may be reasons to discontinue tax-exempt status (I disagree with that premise, I have to add), making patently false statements such as referring to religion as “a special preserve where children can be molested without legal consequence, and the usual rules of financial accountability and simple justice don’t apply” don’t help make the case. There is a string of judicial decisions going all the way up to SCOTUS clearly saying the rules of financial accountability DO apply to churches and religious institutions; child molesters are prosecuted and convicted (when not hidden away by unethical religious leaders); the requirements of secular justice (which is seldom “simple”) in most cases do apply to religion. Where the civil courts decline to act is in cases where religious doctrine has to be decided in order to reach a decision – who is a “true believer”? what is the “true church”? is a priest or pastor fit for office? Courts are not going to go there because of the First Amendment. I’ve not yet read the most recent SCOTUS decision on hiring practices, so I cannot comment on it, but for Tom to rest his case sweeping generalities which are inaccurate statements weakens his position.

Kefallinia. Cephalonia. The island was even described by Homer in ancient times. Its backbone culminates in a peak 1,628m high, in the midst of the Ionian Sea. Seen from the mainland, it surges out of the blue depths in an intense light, often coiffed with a veil of clouds. So when the opportunity arose to build a house facing this spectacle, the choice was obvious. The subject would of course be the island, framed by the house. From the initial sketches until its completion, the plans were developed around the view. From the terraces, the sitting room, the dining room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, the living space was oriented towards this fascinating seascape, which the architecture emphasises, making it even more theatrical.Save this picture!© Serge AntonSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Serge AntonIn Greece, people live in the sunshine. Here we also have to accommodate the wind off the sea, from which the house had to be sheltered, as it clings to the hillside. Once this precaution was taken, the boundaries between interior and exterior became blurred. Immense sliding doors open the sitting and dining rooms onto the patio, thereby forming two covered terraces. Facing the Klein blue of the sea, the white rendering sparkles like the foam on the waves. Its chromatic contrast evokes the traditional houses of the Cyclades. Olivier Dwek reasserts this reference, convinced also of the need to draw inspiration from the history of vernacular architecture to fit harmoniously into our contemporary time.Save this picture!© Serge AntonOriginally published on October 08, 2015. Project gallerySee allShow lessStudhorse / Olson Kundig ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThis is my Square Intervention / Conjuntos EmpáticosSelected Projects Share Year:  “COPY” Greecelast_img read more

Constitutional court ruling favours journalist’s right to protect their sources

first_img Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News German BND Act: A missed opportunity for press freedom News GermanyEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders hailed a ruling yesterday by the German constitutional court that a federal police raid in September 2005 on the offices of Cicero, a political magazine that had published details from a leaked police report about Al-Qaeda, and the copying of data from its computers were “unconstitutional.”“We welcome this decision,” the press freedom organisation said. “Journalists who use information passed to them by their sources should not be prosecuted, otherwise they cannot to fulfill the role they are meant to play in a democracy, which is to seek out information and to question governments.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “However, we think that more must be done to protect the confidentiality of journalists’ sources and we urge the authorities to do what is necessary to ensure that paragraph 353b of the criminal code, which punishes ‘complicity in the disclosure of state secrets,’ no longer applies to journalists.”The organisation added: “The police should no longer be able to tap journalists’ phones, contrary to the ruling issued by Germany’s highest court on 12 March 2003, and in the meantime, a precise definition of the ‘grave’ cases justifying such monitoring should have to be supplied.”Cicero published extracts from a confidential police report about Al-Qaeda in April 2005. Five months later, the police raided the magazine and the home of the journalist who wrote the article. In so doing, they violated the right to the confidentiality of information as guaranteed in paragraph 53 of the code of criminal procedure.The constitutional court began to consider the case on 22 November in response to an appeal by the magazine’s editor, Wolfram Weimer, who said the raid was a violation of press freedom. In the ruling issued today, the court said Weimer was right, basing its decision on the fact that the journalists were not themselves suspected of breaking any law.

Mediocre managers in urgent need of HR help

first_imgMediocre managers in urgent need of HR helpOn 13 May 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Everyone has, at some stage, reported to a line manager who is not up to thejob. It seems there are still a lot of them about – Ricky Gervais’s creationDavid Brent in the BBC’s The Office, may have been a wonderful parody, but healso revealed painful truths about the antics of UK managers. Our exclusive research (see right) goes some way towards defining the scaleof the problem, using the views of HR managers in some of the UK’s biggestemployers. If you needed a wake up call to spur you into action, this is it. The most troubling finding is HR’s concern that line managers lack the coreskills to take the business forward in the next three to five years – theirweakest areas being absence management, performance management, leadership,coping with change and people management. Failure to make line managers accountable for managing people continues tobe widespread. HR is bogged down in correcting managers’ mistakes, firefightingon their behalf, averting costly legal cases and handling admin they know willbe ignored if left to the line. All the time HR spends doing this, leaves lesscapacity to concentrate on a strategic role and little chance of progressive HRpolicies ever making a real operational impact. Equally disturbing is the fact that less than a quarter of our survey’srespondents rated their line managers as good or excellent at coaching andmentoring. Yet there is widespread acceptance that coaching is a key tool inestablishing culture change and is an effective way of getting people to learnnew skills. Something has to change and quickly. Line managers are the vital linkbetween HR and the rest of the business delivering improved performance. HRcannot allow the status quo to continue. HR needs to combine operationalexcellence with a strategic approach that meets business goals. Line managersare your number one tool for delivering employee engagement and that has to bethe key goal for most organisations. And finally, if anyone knows why the UK has more managers than any otherEuropean country, then please let us know. Is it to do with our businessculture? Or is it borne out of hierarchies of inadequacy among people in powerall trying to cover their own backs? Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

IT salaries are still on the rise

first_imgIT salaries are still on the riseOn 8 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Salaries for IT professionals in the financial services sector have risen byas much as 15 per cent in the past six months. According to the latest quarterly IT skills survey from research firm SSL,carried out for Personnel Today’s sister magazine Computer Weekly, the numberof jobs advertised for IT professionals in the finance sector has jumped by 32per cent in the past two quarters. The dramatic rise is due to several investment banks recruiting heavily inLondon and paying more than the market rate for people with strong business andIT skills, industry watchers said. “Over the past six months, permanent recruitment has gone up tidily,and contract even more so,” said Anne Swain, chief executive of theAssociation of Technology Staffing Companies. “Some of the financialinstitutions are paying above the market rate because they are desperate.”Sean Zimdahl, managing director of Aston Carter, which specialises insupplying IT staff to banks, said: “We have seen a dramatic ramp up overthe past two quarters. Counter-offers from firms that want to keep their staffare also increasing.” Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
