Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild | Sunday, 29th March, 2020 | More on: CEY The clock is ticking for ISA investors. Have you maxed out your £20,000 allowance for the 2019–20 tax year? If you haven’t, be quick! You have exactly one week to pay in. Use it or lose it!It doesn’t matter what your attitude to risk is. We here at the Motley Fool believe that now’s not the time to pull up the drawbridge. The key to successful share investing is to only buy with a view to holding shares for a minimum of around 10 years. And there’s a galaxy of companies whose long-term profits outlooks remain quite brilliant.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…Shine onThat’s not to say that cautious investors need to put themselves in unnecessary discomfort, however. How about buying shares in gold mining giant Centamin (LSE: CEY)?With macroeconomic and geopolitical turbulence worsening as Covid-19 spreads across the globe, it’s likely that safe-haven bullion prices will keep rising. And Centamin is obviously a decent way to play this. It offers a dividend, after all, a perk which buying into a gold-backed financial instrument or physical bars and coins doesn’t.Gold rushPrices of the yellow metal really are ripping higher at the minute. They rose around $100 per ounce during the course of last week, representing the biggest seven-day gain since the start of the financial crisis back in 2008.The catalyst? Increasing Covid-19 infection rates across the globe and a subsequent raising of quarantine measures by major economies. More central bank stimulus. And streams of more disappointing economic data due to the outbreak.News that a shocking 3m US citizens have joined the unemployment queues dominated the headlines. It’s likely to be the first of a number of shocking datasets from across the Pond as the crisis continues, and a trend that could heap more and more pressure on the US dollar. The falling greenback following those jobless numbers has also helped gold to post chunky gains in recent days.Still on courseSo back to Centamin. This is a share which is expected to record a 130%-plus leap in annual earnings in 2020 on expectations of a strong gold price. That City forecast leaves it trading on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of just 11.1 times, too.These aren’t the only reasons why the FTSE 250 firm is such a brilliant safe-haven share to buy today, however. At current prices it sports a gigantic 5.3% dividend yield for this year as well.Happily Centamin’s operations have so far been unaffected by the coronavirus breakout. On Thursday it said that its workforce have experienced no illness and that the company has “experienced no material disruption to operations, supply chain, or gold shipments.”News that it has “sufficient internationally sourced critical supplies stockpiled for the next quarter,” and that it has “assessed alternative potential supply channels” also suggests that Centamin is on top of the situation. Things can change of course. But I’d argue that the digger’s low earnings multiple more than bakes in the possibility of production problems. In my opinion this is a share that’s worthy of inclusion of any stock picker’s ISA today.last_img read more

5% dividend yields! Is this UK share a top ISA buy or an investor trap I’ll avoid?

first_img See all posts by Royston Wild 2020 proved to be a disaster for many UK share investors as dividends toppled like dominoes. 2021 could throw up more unwanted surprises for share pickers as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. But this doesn’t mean I’ll stop buying for my own Stocks and Shares ISA this year. There remain plenty of top dividend shares to make big money this year and beyond.A FTSE 100 contenderProperty giant Land Securities (LSE: LAND) gave dividend investors some palpitations in 2020. But glass-half-full investors might be tempted to think the FTSE 100 firm has turned the corner.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…It reinstated dividends back in November after suspending them following the Covid-19 outbreak. And now City analysts suggest that annual payouts will begin growing again after slumping in the last fiscal year (to March 2020). This means Land Securities boasts chubby yields of 3.5% and 5% for financial 2021 and 2022 respectively.I fear UK share investors are taking a mighty gamble investing in this Footsie firm however. Back in November, it said trading conditions had begun to improve in more recent months. But tightening Covid-19 lockdowns since then, and in particular the national clampdown announced in recent days, surely puts paid to such a recovery.Plenty of problemsLand Securities saw pre-tax losses balloon to £835m in the six months to September, from £147m a year earlier. This reflected the retail, leisure and hotel sectors being put into mothballs. The probability that current lockdowns will remain in place until the spring gives the FTSE 100 firm and its investors plenty to worry about.Also, Land Securities can expect no relief to come from its portfolio of office properties either. It’s not just the threat of a cyclical slowdown that could pressure the UK share’s rent rolls. It’s that the rise of homeworking could also push up vacancy rates in the near term and beyond.All of this explains why Morgan Stanley predicted recently that “market rental value trajectory will be sideways at best” across the broader office sector. It even said rents will actually drop “in weaker locations where supply is looser.”I’ll be buying other UK shares!City analysts expect Land Securities to bounce from a 32% drop in annual earnings in this financial year to a 17% rise in financial 2022. Clearly though, the fresh national lockdown puts figures for this year and next in severe jeopardy. So I won’t be buying this UK share for my ISA any time soon.Besides, Land Securities’ share price doesn’t even reflect its broad range of colossal problems right now. Today, the FTSE 100 business trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 20 times. I’d expect a reading much closer to (or even below) the bargain-basement benchmark of 10 times.There are many other UK shares in much healthier shape to choose from today.

Hotshot: Ulster and Ireland U20 centre Angus Curtis

first_img Hotshot: Ulster and Ireland U20 centre Angus CurtisDate of birth 26 March 1998 Born Harare Province Ulster Country Ireland Position CentreYou’re from a rugby family… Yes, my dad played rugby and he was introduced to it by his dad (dad David and grandfather Arthur Bryan both represented Ireland), and me and my brothers got into it too.I played cricket and rugby from a young age. It’s only in the last couple of years that rugby has been my main sport.When did you first play rugby? At primary school in Harare, St John’s, when I was seven or eight. I then got a scholarship for cricket and rugby to Hilton College in South Africa when I was 13. Zimbabwe schoolboy rugby is decent but in South Africa it’s a huge step up – competitive and physical.When did you decide to focus on rugby? In my last year at school. I got involved with Sharks U18 and thought, ‘This is what I want to do’. I liked cricket too but I enjoyed rugby more. I was an opening batsman and if you’re put into bat first and are caught at slip early on, you’re done for the whole day. In rugby you’re involved for 80 minutes and are always making a contribution. I like the camaraderie too, as much as it’s a cliché.Have you always been a centre? TAGS: Ulster RW VERDICT: Curtis, who has been joined in the Ulster Academy by younger brother Graham, has shone for Ireland U20 with his physicality and made his Ulster debut at the end of the season. Next term, he is targeting more provincial rugby.This article originally appeared in the July 2018 issue of Rugby World magazine. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Meet Angus Curtis, the centre following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps Centre of attention: Angus Curtis in action for Ireland U20 earlier this year (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I was pretty much a fly-half all the way through school. It’s only since I came over to Ulster in January 2017 that I’ve made the conversion to centre.What are your strengths? My feet and taking the ball to the line, looking to take defenders on. My distribution, and my defence is pretty solid.What do you do off the field? I’m studying economics and finance at Queen’s University, so I don’t have a lot of time outside that and rugby. I’m finishing my first year and think I’ll go part-time next year to fit everything in.Do you get to go back to Zimbabwe often? I went back for a month last year after the Junior World Cup, and I’m doing the same this time, going back for four weeks before pre-season.last_img read more

Legendary scrumhalf Joost van der Westhuizen passes away

first_imgMonday Feb 6, 2017 Legendary scrumhalf Joost van der Westhuizen passes away Springbok legend Joost van der Westhuizen has lost his lengthy battle with motor neuron disease. The World Cup winner passed away on Monday afternoon after having been rushed to hospital in critical condition on Saturday. He is survived by two children, and was 45-years-old. Van der Westhuizen had been suffering from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a form of Motor Neuron Disease (MND) for the last six years.“Joost will be remembered as one of the greatest Springboks – not only of his generation, but of all time,” said Mr Mark Alexander, President of SA Rugby.  “As a player, he lifted the Rugby World Cup, Tri-Nations and Currie Cup while establishing himself as one of the best scrumhalves world rugby has ever seen. He was the record holder for the most Test tries for the Springboks for more than 13 years and finished his international career with 38 Test tries.“He also became an inspiration and hero to many fellow sufferers of this terrible disease as well as to those unaffected. We all marvelled at his bravery, his fortitude and his uncomplaining acceptance of this terrible burden. “It’s a sad day for rugby in South Africa and across the globe as we say goodbye to a legend of the Springboks. Our condolences go to his family and friends at this sad, sad time.”Despite his deterioting health and extreme difficulties in recent years, Joost made it his personal mission to improve conditions, support and facilities for other sufferers out there. He did this through his J9 foundation, who have stated that they will continue the fight.Joost leaves behind two children, thirteen year old Jordan and ten year old Kylie.Great memories with our dear friend and team mate, laughing eyes even in the face of adversity! #RIPJoost we miss you already. pic.twitter.com/hlBxv3QVFZ— Joel Stransky (@stranners) February 6, 2017I’m absolutely gutted!

Even in the event of a contractual dispute, a technical provider must give reasons for its decision. It does not have the competence to decide whether or not an online publication should be banned. This is the province of a judge, it said in the letter.Iranian Internet-users already suffer relentless government censorship, so it is all the more important for American host companies to show their respect for free expression, it added.The ISNA is an official press agency that nevertheless provides an important source of information, particularly for foreign organisations and media, on the arrests of journalists and political dissidents in Iran, it said. The agency regularly relays information from human rights organisations, even though it does not give its sources.In the email notifying ISNA that it was terminating the contract, The Planet said its decision was non negotiable and gave the agency 48 hours to find a new provider. Contacted by phone by Reporters Without Borders, The Planet refused to comment.The deputy technical director of ISNA described the host’s action as a “violation of international law”.

Warning that new city feud could lead to murder

first_imgA NEW feud in the Ballinacurra Weston area of Limerick could result in serious injury, or the loss of life through murder.That is according to gardai who “stressed” that a new violent dispute has escalated in recent weeks, as shots have been fired, acts of arson, criminal damage and serious assaults have occurred.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Detectives have warned that more incidents could follow, and threats could be “made good” if the situation is not brought under control.The comments of Det Garda Pat Whelan and Garda Garry Laide came as they opposed the bail applications of two men arrested in Roscrea and Limerick on January 5 last.Judge Tom O’Donnell heard Garda Laide state that the feud that has escalated in the last three to four weeks in the city could result in murder.Limerick District Court was stunned to silence as it heard that it was of a serious nature with many parties involved.Garda Laide gave evidence during the bail application of two men charged in connection with a serious assault in the area, where it is alleged, that four men, two carrying knives, alighted from a car and stabbed several times and assaulted a man in his 20s.Gardai told the court that they were objecting to the bail applications of the two as they feared witness intimidation, that further serious assaults or acts of crime would be committed.One man, a potential witness, who had attended the courthouse during the proceedings, told gardai that he would not stay in the area of Merchants Quay, as he alleged that he was in fear for his life after being threatened to withdraw statements he made to gardai.These statements, the court was told by gardai, form a major part of the case being brought by the State.A woman in her 40s was arrested after it was alleged she threatened to kill a potential witness linked to the this new and bitter feud.Gardai say that their investigations are ongoing.

Chemical exposure at Buffalo Wild Wings kills one, injures 10

first_imgRiverNorthPhotography/iStock(BURLINGTON, Mass.) — One person is dead and 10 others have been hospitalized following a chemical incident at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Burlington, Massachusetts.Investigators were called to the restaurant at approximately 6 p.m. on Thursday when they received a report of a chemical reaction in the kitchen.When authorities arrived, they found an employee, who had been exposed to a strong cleaning agent while preparing the floor to be cleaned, suffering from nausea after he breathed in fumes from the product.The unidentified male employee was rushed to Lahey Hospital and later died, according to ABC’s affiliate station in Boston, WCVB-TV.Ten more people, including employees and customers, complained of breathing difficulties and eye irritation and were checked into the hospital for evaluation.Interim Burlington fire chief Michael Patterson said that the chemical that was involved in the incident was sodium hypochlorite, the main ingredient in bleach.“This is a common product used in floor cleaning. It was just a reaction that led to this,” said Patterson.“The gentleman that passed away was an employee of Buffalo Wild Wings who attempted to squeegee the product out of the building when he was overcome,” Patterson continued. “Anyone who was in the restaurant at the time and believes they may be impacted by the incident should seek medical treatment immediately.”Footage filmed by WCVB shows a HAZMAT crew conducting an investigation inside the restaurant with fire crews responding outside the establishment.According to WCVB, the Occupational Saftey and Health Administration has been informed of the incident.A Buffalo Wild Wings spokesperson told ABC News, “We are shocked and saddened to learn of this tragic accident at our franchise-owned sports bar and are working closely with our franchisee and the authorities while they conduct an investigation. Because the investigation is ongoing, we are unable to share any additional comment at this time. Any further questions will need to be referred to the local authorities.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
