How I’d invest £10k in this FTSE 100 bear market

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! When history looks back to 2020 it will record that the FTSE 100 fell into a bear market because of the dual gut punch of a novel coronavirus outbreak and a Saudi-Russia oil price war.Both of those events are still playing out. It’s clear that we will feel their effects for years to come.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…Bear markets are usually defined as periods when stock market indexes drop 20% from a recent peak. For us, that peak was around 19 February. The FTSE 100 stood at a now-unthinkable 7,457 points. But despite those crushing lows in March, the FTSE 100 has recovered by 19%. From a 23 March low of 4,993, the index has reclaimed nearly 1,000 points.Whether this recent rally is sustainable is a matter for debate. If the pubs were still open, it would be order-of-business number one on the table between my investor friends and me.Keeping hold of my portfolio of funds, FTSE 100, FTSE 250, and AIM companies has been an emotionally taxing process.How to profitOne thing is certain. Choppy markets offer up a bunch of new opportunities for investors with cash on hand.Most of the UK’s largest firms have said they have little to no visibility on their 2020 earnings. So company valuations will be necessarily inaccurate in the months to come. Long-term investors should be able to take advantage of this kind of mispricing.As I said in the wake of the worst stock market crash since 1987, I’ve been stockpiling cash. I now have around five figures ready to deploy. And I’m ready to pounce whenever I see the market significantly undervaluing good companies.Grin and bear itYou wouldn’t be human if you weren’t nervous of further falls in your portfolio. I was stunned by the steep drop in my net worth when the FTSE 100 crashed. About 15% of my ISA wealth was wiped out in a day. It’s been painfully slow, but because I stayed invested, I’ve regained everything that was lost.Of course there will be businesses that simply run out of cash before the economy reopens, never to resurface. But my focus now is on the businesses I think will not just survive a 2020 recession, but thrive as life slowly returns to normal.I’m looking to add to my holdings in 10%+ yield energy supermajors BP and Royal Dutch Shell. The 8.5% yield in Legal & General is attractive, too. And I think a new investment in a FTSE 100 UK housebuilder with relatively low debt and a conservative gearing, for example Taylor Wimpey, makes a lot of sense, too.I would add that I think consumer habits will be changed forever by the coronavirus outbreak. I’m looking at outsourcing companies like Bunzl to profit from the extremely elevated level of purchasing in industrial cleaning supplies, for example.Bear markets all share particular characteristics. Sellers, not buyers, set the price. Investor sentiment cycles rapidly between hope and despair. But bear markets are where small private investors like you and me can set ourselves up for some of the strongest gains we will ever see. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Tom Rodgers Tom Rodgers | Tuesday, 28th April, 2020 Enter Your Email Address How I’d invest £10k in this FTSE 100 bear market I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Native peoples block toxic oil pipeline

first_imgAug. 23 — The start of construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline, a multi-state, 1,100-mile-long crude oil pipeline to be built under the Missouri, Mississippi and Big Sioux rivers, was temporarily halted on Aug. 18. Led by people from the Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires of the Great Sioux Nation) and other Indigenous nations, protesters forced the U.S. government and the pipeline’s corporate owners to stand down after a series of heroic actions blocked access to the construction site near the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota.Thousands of people representing about 300 Indigenous nations as well as many non-Native people have gathered in solidarity near Standing Rock, and vow to stay there until the pipeline project is cancelled. They stand ready to peacefully defy any court injunction that would allow the pipeline construction to proceed. They will not back down despite arrests, surveillance, police highway blockades, and limited resources.On July 26, the Obama administration, via the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, quietly approved the pipeline, and construction plans by Energy Transfer and Enbridge swiftly moved forward. Standing Rock received a “48-hour notice” that digging was to begin under the Missouri River, a source of water, livelihood and a way of life for Native and non-Native peoples in the region.Months of struggle by Indigenous peoples, farmers, ranchers and environmentalists of many ages and nationalities preceded this important temporary victory. This included “the establishment of the Camp of Sacred Stones in Standing Rock, actions in Iowa, several youth runs for sacred water, including a 2,000 mile trek from North Dakota to Washington D.C., petitions and testifying at hearings with the Army Corps,” outlines Lakota writer Wakíŋyaŋ Waánataŋ (Matt Remle). (lrinspire.com, Aug. 19)‘Historic moment’ unfoldingThe struggle to protect the water and defend tribal sovereignty is mobilizing Indigenous people in the U.S. to a degree not seen in decades. Many say that they are protecting the water for the millions of people in the region who rely on the Missouri River for water. They point out that oil pipelines inevitably leak and break and cause immense environmental devastation as a result.According to the Wall Street Journal, a mouthpiece of the corporate defilers of the Earth, the Dakota Access Pipeline, one of the interrelated Bakken pipelines, has many big-name oil companies connected with it: “Dakota Access is being built by Energy Transfer Partners LP and its affiliate, Sunoco Logistics Partners LP. Phillips 66, the refiner, owns a 25 percent stake. And Enbridge Energy Partners LP and Marathon Petroleum Corp., bought a stake in the Dakota Access line for $2 billion earlier this month, leaving the fate of a separate Bakken pipeline they had been planning unclear.” (Aug. 18)North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple declared a state of emergency Aug. 19, seemingly accusing the protesters of unlawful actions and stating they cause “a significant public safety concern.” Parks were closed and roadblocks were set up to the Cannon Ball Camp in Standing Rock. This may be a prelude to his eventually calling in the National Guard.Dave Archambault II, Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, called the governor’s actions “unfortunate” and decried the fact that the tribe had not been consulted. He said the Tribal Council voted unanimously that the roadblocks should be removed. (lastrealindians.com, Aug. 21)“What is happening at the Cannon Ball Camp reflects a historic moment for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe,” said Archambault. “For the first time in 100 years we are hosting the reconvening of the Seven Council fires of the Oceti Sakowin.”A federal judge will soon decide on a temporary restraining order sought by the corporations to stop or limit protesting. In a separate case, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will appear on Aug. 24 before a Washington, D.C., federal court seeking a stop to construction of the pipeline. Standing Rock has consistently opposed the pipeline in any form.Statements and resolutions in solidarity with the struggle are requested and pouring in from across the country and around the world.

Encampment residents demand end to evictions

first_imgResidents of a tent encampment on W. Chapel Hill Street in Durham, N.C., along with community supporters, held a press conference and rally on June 8 to demand that they not be forcibly evicted by the police.According to a statement from the residents: “Last Friday, on June 1, we received a letter from Captain Reitz notifying us that we would all be evicted within seven days. We have nowhere to go. The shelters are full and all have waiting lists. Many of us do not feel safe staying in a shelter. We feel safe living in our tents and wish to remain here until we find more permanent free housing.” Durham currently faces a huge gentrification and evictions crisis, with more than 900 people getting evicted every month.The tent encampment residents released a statement demanding that the state Department of Transportation and the city of Durham:Do not evict us until we are found permanent, free housing.Do not cut down the trees in our encampment. The trees keep us shaded from the elements, especially the hot sun during the summer, plus they provide us an important environmental buffer from the highway.Provide us with a few trash receptacles and provide us weekly collection service, like all other residencies in Durham, so that we can keep our encampment clean.Transition the old Durham Police headquarters, just across the street from our encampment, into affordable housing and provide us all free housing in the building.“Allow us to be — we just want to live. We are trying to get by best we can and get back into society,” said Sandra McCuller, an encampment resident.“I don’t want to be evicted. I don’t want to live in a shelter and worry about being a victim,” stated resident Edward Prettyman.A statement from the United Residents of the Chapel Hill Street Tent Encampment reads in part: “This is our home. We live here. The state is not using this land. All of us have lived here between four months and a year. We have a trusting, strong community of residents. We all support each other in various ways in feeding ourselves and staying safe. … There is already a housing and eviction crisis in Durham. Do not add us to that tragic list.”Durham activists have set up a rapid response group to mobilize in case the police show up at the encampment at any time, and to keep public pressure and actions going to deter them from evicting the residents. Supporters are urged to contact North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary James Trogdon at [email protected] and 919-707-2800. Tell him, “Don’t evict the Durham tent encampment!” #DefendDurham #HousingisaRight #stopevictionsnowFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Leading journalist arrested again on charge of libelling Lukashenko

first_img to go further June 22, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Leading journalist arrested again on charge of libelling Lukashenko Receive email alerts BelarusEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on Belarus BelarusEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information May 27, 2021 Find out more Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF sayscenter_img Organisation Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns leading journalist Andrzej Poczobut’s detention since yesterday on a new charge of libelling President Alexander Lukashenko, for which he is facing a possible five-year jail sentence.Poczobut, who works for several independent media including the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza, was arrested in the western city of Grodno, where he lives. He spent three months in prison last year on a charge of libelling the president.“This new arrest shows that Poczobut is being hounded because of his determination to work as an independent reporter,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He was convicted on a similar charge just a year ago. Because of the president’s ego, he is now threatened with another grotesque conviction. It will just reinforce self-censorship and the climate of intimidation for independentmedia. He must be released without delay.”Poczobut is charged with libel under article 367-2 of the criminal code, which carries a possible five-year jail term when it is a repeat offence and the target is the president.According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, he was arrested at his home at around 4 p.m. yesterday by six men, who included Arseni Nikolski, the investigator who handled the case the last time he was charged. They took him away after searching his apartment and seizing his computers.Poczobut declined to make any statement when interrogated. He is currently being held at Grodno police headquarters, where his lawyer has not been allowed to talk to him.After spending three months in pre-trial detention on a charge of insulting the president for calling him a dictator, Poczobut was given a three-year suspended sentence on 5 July 2011. Yesterday’s arrest was apparently prompted by articles he wrote for two independent news websites, Charter97.org and Belaruspartizan.org, about the April 2011 Minsk metro bombing, for which twoyoung men were executed after a sham trial.
