FTSE 100 to end 2021 at 7,200 points? Why I think UK shares could be too cheap to miss!

July 5, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgFTSE 100 to end 2021 at 7,200 points? Why I think UK shares could be too cheap to miss! The Covid-19 crisis has largely been a catastrophe for UK share prices in 2020. The FTSE 100 has taken an almighty walloping and, at 6,650 points as of right now, is down 12% from 1 January.Hopes are rising though, that we could be on the cusp of a new bull market. With a no-deal Brexit catastrophe averted and a coronavirus vaccine breakthrough there’s huge optimism that the FTSE 100 could roar back and give us all some good news in 2021.5G 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…The experts at UBS are certainly expecting the FTSE 100 to rocket from current levels. They reckon Britain’s blue-chip share index to trade at around 7,200 points on 31 December, 2021. This is built on expectations that average annual earnings will rocket 21% next year and rise an extra 10% in 2022.This leaves the FTSE 100 dealing on an undemanding forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 16 times. The UK share index carries an average 3.9% dividend yield too which, in my opinion, isn’t to be sniffed at.FTSE 100 = top value!UBS reckons the FTSE 100 offers terrific value for investors heading into the new year too. The bank notes that “the UK equity market has been one of the worst-performing major global markets since the Brexit referendum in June 2016,” and, as a consequence, “valuations for UK equities relative to Europe [are] close to 20-year lows.”The FTSE 100 has also greatly underperformed other major global equity markets in recent months. It’s soared today following the recent passing of fresh stimulus measures in the US and by the thin Brexit deal. But its performance in recent weeks is still pretty tame compared to that of the Dow Jones. The US index has hit repeated highs and struck new peaks overnight. Japan’s Nikkei has also touched fresh 30-year peaks in recent hours.2 cheap UK shares on my watchlistI believe the FTSE 100 offers unmissable value at current levels. It was already looking undervalued prior to 2020. And the stock market crash of late February and early March leaves plenty of top UK shares trading at prices I consider too cheap to miss.Take GlaxoSmithKline for example. The pharmaceuticals giant doesn’t just trade on a cheap P/E ratio of 12 times for 2021. It carries a monster 6% dividend yield too. Legal & General offers even better value. The life insurer trades on an earnings multiple of 10 times and carries a huge 7.3% dividend yield. The list of blue-chip bargains is huge.Investors need to be careful before taking the plunge. Some FTSE 100 shares (like Lloyds) deserve to have slumped in value in 2020 as Covid-19 has significantly damaged their earnings opportunities.Many UK shares also have high debt levels that they may struggle to service in 2021 and beyond.

Don’t ‘save’ for retirement! I’d buy dirt-cheap UK shares now to make a passive income

Saving money for retirement may not be the best means of making a passive income in older age. Low interest rates mean that obtaining a high annual return that builds a nest egg over time is a very challenging task.As such, investing money in UK shares while they trade at cheap prices could be a more profitable move. In many cases, high-quality companies can deliver rising valuations over the long run as the economic outlook improves. This may lead to a larger income in retirement.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…Cheap UK shares can help build a passive incomeThe track record of the stock market shows that UK shares have been a sound means of obtaining a generous passive income in retirement. For example, the FTSE 250 traded at around 6,700 points 20 years ago. Today, its price is around three times that level despite experiencing numerous crashes, downturns and challenges along the way.As such, when reinvested dividends are included, a £10,000 investment in mid-cap shares 20 years ago would be worth around £52,000 today.An investor who buys UK stocks today could realistically obtain an even higher return than that of the stock market. Due to the 2020 market crash, many FTSE 250 (and FTSE 100) shares are trading at prices that may undervalue their long-term prospects.For example, they may face a period of lower demand for their products. Or they could be forced to adapt to changing consumer tastes. However, their financial strength and capacity to adjust over the long run may mean they produce impressive returns, as well as a growing passive income, relative to the wider stock market.Investing money in shares right now versus holding cashBuying cheap UK shares has been a successful strategy to obtain a large passive income in the past. Investors who purchased shares following events such as the 1987 crash, the dot com bubble and the global financial crisis are likely to have benefited from the stock market’s recovery.Since the UK stock market continues to trade at a discount to its all-time high, there may be scope to do likewise at the present time.Of course, holding some cash is always a good idea for all investors. It provides peace of mind during what may prove to be an uncertain period for many people. However, relying on it to build a retirement income is unlikely to be an effective strategy.Certainly, in the past, cash savings accounts were able to offer positive returns on an after-inflation basis to produce a passive income in older age. However, with UK interest rates now almost at zero, the prospects of earning a generous income in retirement via cash savings accounts seem limited.Therefore, capitalising on low valuations across UK shares seems to be a better means of planning for retirement.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Para el pueblo cubano, este día constituye una jornada de gran trascendencia para su futuro. Los pasos que hoy se han dado entre los gobiernos de Cuba y los Estados Unidos, al anunciar el restablecimiento de relaciones diplomáticas y en consecuencia proceder a la excarcelación de los tres compatriotas cubanos y al ciudadano norteamericano Alan Gross, entre otros, ponen de manifiesto que, el diálogo, la disposición de entendimiento mutuo y respeto en medio de diferencias, son elementos básicos en las relaciones entre pueblos y gobiernos.Damos gracias a Dios por el retorno de todos ellos al seno de sus familias y de sus países y por el reconocimiento de poner fin a la ruptura y crear grandes posibilidades de comprensión y respeto en las relaciones. Damos gracias a Dios por los puentes de esperanza que las Iglesias en Estados Unidos y en Cuba afirmaron desde hace varias décadas, aún en momentos políticamente difíciles. Especialmente damos gracias por la Iglesia Episcopal (aclarar aquí) (TEC), que a través de diferentes maneras como viajes, intercambios o presentación de resoluciones oficiales, ha acompañado a nuestra Iglesia y por lo tanto a nuestro pueblo.Pedimos a Dios que su Espíritu Santo guíe a los gobernantes y líderes de ambos países en sabias decisiones. Que ilumine los nuevos tiempos y desafíos que se avizoran para el pueblo cubano. Que ese mismo Espíritu nos permita entretejer – aún con las diferencias- la concordia entre ambos pueblos y afirmar nuestro compromiso de defender la verdad, la justicia y la paz que provienen del amor inconmensurable de Dios Trino.La Navidad, que nos aprestamos a celebrar, es el proyecto de amor encarnado, que se hace realidad contextual hoy. Jesús nace para que la reconciliación y la paz lleguen y llenen la vida de mujeres y hombres, de familias y comunidades, de pueblos y naciones. Que la luz de la Navidad sea fuente de bendición para ambos pueblos.Rev. Alfredo Nuño               +Ulises Aguero                 +Griselda DelgadoPres.

Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Fairbanks, Alaska] Seis obispos episcopales han escrito una carta a 10 senadores de EE.UU. en la que les instan a votar contra el intento de los republicanos de abrogar la Ley de Atención Asequible [ACA por su sigla en inglés], la legislación sobre la atención sanitaria también conocida como Obamacare.La carta, fechada el 24 de septiembre, se da a conocer mientras la Cámara de Obispos celebra su reunión de otoño en Fairbanks, Alaska. Mark Lattime, el obispo de la Diócesis de Alaska es uno de los signatarios de la carta a los senadores. Una de los destinatarios es la senadora federal Lisa Murkowski, republicana de Alaska, cuyo voto se ve como esencial para la aprobación del proyecto de ley Graham-Cassidy, aunque el 25 de septiembre éste parecía destinado al fracaso.“Les instamos, [señores] senadores, en el espíritu de justicia y debido proceso, oponerse a un proyecto de ley que causaría tanta perturbación y caos en la atención sanitaria de millones de nuestros ciudadanos, especialmente los más vulnerables entre nosotros”, dicen los obispos en su carta. “Como cristianos y como líderes religiosos en nuestros respectivos estados, pedimos que ustedes se mantengan firmes en el proceso democrático que nos sirve a todos. El acceso a esa atención sanitaria es esencial para mantener la red de protección social que permite a nuestras comunidades prosperar”.Además de Lattime, otros signatarios de la carta son los obispos Kirk Smith, de la Diócesis de Arizona; Stephen Lane, de la Diócesis de Maine; Mark Hollingsworth, de la Diócesis de Ohio; Thomas Breidenthal, de la Diócesis de Ohio Sur y Michael Klusmeyer, de la Diócesis de Virginia Occidental.La carta está dirigida a los senadores Murkowski; Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska; John McCain y Jeff Flake, ambos republicanos de Arizona; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Angus King, I-Maine; Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Joe Manchin, D-Virginia Occidental, y Shelley Moore Capito, R-Virginia Occidental.El líder de la mayoría del Senado, Mitch McConnell, ha dicho que se propone presentar el proyecto de ley en el pleno para someterlo a votación esta semana, pero esas esperanzas casi se han esfumado. Después que McCain y el senador Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, se pronunciaran contra el proyecto de ley, Collins anunció el 25 de septiembre que ella, también, votaría en contra, lo cual parece indicar que [el proyecto de ley] no cuenta con los cincuenta votos necesarios para resultar aprobado.La carta de los obispos cita una reducción estimativa de $23.000 millones en gastos federales destinados a la atención sanitaria en un período de nueve años en los cinco estados de los obispos [firmantes]. Destaca también parte de la legislación que revocaría una expansión del [programa] Medicaid vigente con la Obamacare, que afectaría potencialmente a estadounidenses de bajos ingresos.“Nuestro Pacto Bautismal nos llama a respectar la dignidad de todo ser humano”, dicen los obispos. “Es nuestra responsabilidad retarlos a ustedes, nuestros líderes electos, a trabajar en pro de la justicia y la igualdad por el bienestar de todas las personas, no sólo de aquellos que puedan costearse un seguro de salud”.La Iglesia Episcopal ha abogado desde hace mucho a favor de políticas que ayuden a que los estadounidenses tengan acceso a una atención sanitaria asequible y global basadas en una larga serie de resoluciones de la Convención General. Su Red Episcopal de Política Pública [EPPN por su sigla en inglés] hizo circular un aviso el 20 de septiembre en que llamaba a los episcopales a dirigirse a sus representantes y pedirles que se opusieran a la nueva legislación.“El proyecto de ley Graham-Cassidy carece de los beneficios de audiencias públicas informadas con expertos y de minuciosas avenencias bipartidistas, y no aborda las preocupaciones que se destacaban en anteriores esfuerzos por abrogar la ACA”, decía el aviso de la EPPN.El proyecto de ley, que debe su nombre a los senadores republicanos Lindsey Graham de Carolina del Sur y Bill Cassidy de Luisiana, es el último de una serie de intentos republicanos de revocar la Ley de Atención Asequible, la legislación emblemática del presidente Barack Obama, que el convirtió en ley en 2010 después de que el Congreso la aprobara sin ningún apoyo republicano.Murkowski, que es una de los tres senadores que votó contra un proyecto de ley anterior para abrogar la Obamacare en julio, no ha dicho todavía cómo votará esta vez. Los líderes republicanos han añadido incentivos para Alaska en el nuevo proyecto de ley, incluyendo una cláusula que eximiría a los alasqueños nativos de perder cobertura de Medicaid cuando el programa se reduzca.–David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

The proposal was to knock down the existing studio, and rebuild an artist’s studio with better facilities, as well as a separate two bedroom house all within the same footprint.

The industrial material reflects the working nature of the studio, while this is offset by minimal detailing to give the shell a domestic quality and scale. Save this picture!Courtesy of Edgley DesignThe main volume of the house is articulated as a black rubber clad box, tactile and seamless, in sharp contrast to the rambling greenery of the surrounding sites. A wall wraps around this as a separate element, forming rooflights to the hall and stair. Planting in front of this wall will give the appearance of a ’green wall’ almost entirely hiding the house from the view of neighbours. Save this picture!Courtesy of Edgley DesignThe house is organised as a series of internalised experiences, that create a private retreat from the bustle of its Hackney Central location. There are few windows, and most daylight and sunlight is received from roof lights and the internal courtyard. This creates an introspective house giving complete privacy for the inhabitants, and preventing any overlooking to neighbouring properties.

Located in Nishijin, Kyoto, JURAKU RO is a mixed-use project that includes both residential apartment and a hotel. As the name indicates, this building is located in the site of Old Castle ‘JURAKU DAI’. Street in this area used to be lined with Machiya (Kyoto’s Old townhouse) where traditional waving industry flourished. There are only a few old townhouses remain, and most of the recent apartment building in this area doesn’t seem to contribute to surrounding scenery while their façade is the only element to follow the landscape regulation. In this project, we considered how JURAKU RO could be part of surrounding neighbors, as well as contributing creating Kyoto’s landscape in the present day.Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Yasutake KondoOpen Space in the TownBesides its major function as a rental apartment, JURAKU RO also includes facilities for short-stay guestroom and café space on the ground floor where many and unspecified persons can be accommodated. Semi-outdoor space (Piloti) and the grass parking lots provide multi-functional open space for residents, locals, and hotel guest to organize local events.Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoDOMA; a place interconnect indoor and outdoor, public and privateAfter passing through Noren (fabric wall hanging) at the entrance, you may see the ‘DOMA’ that spread itself up to the back of the building and each flat is connecting to this corridor. DOMA, a place intermediate between outdoor and indoor, is one of important elements in Kyoto’s traditional house. It provides access to light and wind in an elongated closed space and also allows to walk through inside of a house with one’s shoes on and connects to the outdoor space. DOMA would provide a variety of functions and purposes to JURAKURO, from local events to casual community gathering. Each flat also enjoys Doma space attached to the inner garden where residents can experience this unique space while in the room. Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoSave this picture!© Yasutake KondoCustomized Rental ApartmentEach flat is composed of three rooms -Doma, Main room, and a bathroom. The ductworks are exposed and the partition between the main room and the bathroom made with concrete block. You may find no storage or drawer, but just one big space. Usually, the rental apartment is furnished as if their lifestyle is expected to be similar to others. In fact, no residents are the same when it comes to a preferred style or design which result in a billion different outcomes and possibilities for custom furniture. Each resident customizes their own furniture depending on their lifestyle and needs, with a consistent support from professional designer and constructors. By offering this service will enable for residents to discover and be attached to their unique lifestyle more, this, as a result, encourage to connect to the locals.Save this picture!© Yasutake KondoSave this picture!Elevation and SectionSave this picture!© Yasutake KondoThe city’s landscapeThe finish of exterior wall of JURAKU RO is a black. You may find it unusual to see the black building standing in the small town, however, this color is originated from the old castle ‘JURAKU DAI’. As a memory of this site, we built a modern black architecture where JURAKU DAI is once a symbol of prosperity. Project gallerySee allShow lessShanghai Modern Art Museum / Atelier DeshausSelected ProjectsAIA Announces Winners of 2018 Housing AwardsArchitecture News Share Lead Architect: ArchDaily Koji Yamanaka Photographs Projects Architects: GENETO Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895064/juraku-ro-geneto Clipboardcenter_img Juraku Ro / GENETO 2017 Hotels ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895064/juraku-ro-geneto Clipboard Juraku Ro / GENETOSave this projectSaveJuraku Ro / GENETO “COPY” Photographs:  Yasutake Kondo Year:  Save this picture!© Yasutake Kondo+ 19Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyAbout this officeGENETOOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsHospitality ArchitectureHotelsMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousesKyoto-shiKyōto-shiJapanPublished on May 27, 2018Cite: “Juraku Ro / GENETO” 26 May 2018.

Ryanair promises its compensation to charity

June 16, 2021 0 Comments

first_img The low-cost airline Ryanair has launched a £3m compensation claim to the Department of Transport but says that any money it receives from the claim will go to charity.The claim has been submitted to cover losses incurred as a result of the heightened security at UK airports after an alleged terrorist plot to blow up transatlantic flights was uncovered.Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary said the company would not benefit financially should it win the case. As Ryanair’s sole motive in this action is to defeat terrorism by returning airport security to normal, and since we don’t wish to be seen to profit in any way from suing the government, all proceeds received from a successful claim under the 2000 Transport Act will be donated to Ryanair’s nominated charity, Orbis, O’Leary said.

Workers World challenge overturns Pennsylvania prison ban

June 15, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgThe Pennsylvania Department of Corrections sent a letter to Workers World Publishers on Oct. 13, informing us that the denial of Workers World issue 35, Aug. 31, into Pennsylvania prisons has been “overturned.”A previous DOC letter to Workers World Publishers on Sept. 11 stated: “The August 31 issue of Workers World newspaper has been denied to all inmates housed in Pennsylvania prisons.”Their reason: The issue contained articles that “call for people to join the fight against white supremacy.”This was the fourth issue of WW denied to Pennsylvania prisoners since Donald Trump’s election. Earlier this year, the DOC censored issues numbered 7, 12 and 13 for advocating a May 1 global general strike.The Oct. 13 DOC letter identified the prisoner denied the right to receive our newspaper as imprisoned at Smithfield Prison.Coincidentally, several Philly comrades visited Smithfield on Oct. 12 to speak, by invitation, to a Muslim group of prisoners. When the comrades tried to bring a bundle of WW newspapers into the prison, officials opened up an issue and said they were banning it because on page 2, the headline of our own article said WW was banned: “Pennsylvania prisons ban WW for supporting ‘fight against white supremacy’.” (www.workers.org/2017/10/02/)No matter what the comrades argued, the prison official would not allow the papers inside.Workers World has as much right to be read by prisoners as any other newspaper or magazine, and especially so because its articles are written by activists in on-the-ground leading positions in diverse people’s movements.$50 for each issue deniedWW Publishers filed an appeal of the original ban on Sept. 26, demanding that the DOC cease this unconstitutional practice for future issues; give each prisoner the WW copies that were denied to him or her; and make each inmate “whole” whose constitutional rights were denied by compensating them $50 for each issue withheld from them.The DOC’s Oct. 13 letter does not mention the demand that prisoners be compensated.Workers World has since received a copy of another prisoner’s grievance, which demands that the Pennsylvania DOC “reimburse me a total of $50.00 into my account. My constitutional rights were impinged upon by censoring me from receiving this publication.”Workers World shared the DOC’s Sept. 11 denial letter widely in social media so the public at large could view the white supremacist attitudes of the prison administration expressed outright in their own words.Our loved ones behind bars in this state are subjected to those racist attitudes and actions every day.WW urged activists to send complaints to the DOC in Mechanicsburg, Pa. Reporters from The Guardian, Newsweek and other media outlets reached out to WW for confirmation and comments. Many expressed initial disbelief the DOC would be so blatant in their support for white supremacy until they saw the facsimile of the letter.The social media campaign forced the DOC to reverse course. But until each prisoner is awarded $50 for being denied the time-sensitive publication, we do not consider the matter closed.Nevertheless, our campaign was successful not only in overturning the DOC denial but also in supporting the prisoners’ right to Marxist literature, in getting the word out in social media about Workers World Party, and in exposing the Pennsylvania DOC’s racism and cruel punishments once again.After all, this is the same incarceration system that denies hepatitis C medicine to prisoners.It imprisons so many children and young adults 16 to 25 years of age — more than any other state in the U.S. — that it has a special prison for youth at Pine Grove SCI. As of Oct. 21, there are 1,099 prisoners there, 39 percent of them under the age of 20. (www.cor.pa.gov)The Pennsylvania DOC imprisons political prisoners Mumia Abu-Jamal, Bryant Arroyo, Russell “Maroon” Shoatz, Major George Tillery and others who have contributed to peoples’ movements for liberation despite being held behind bars. Their wisdom and courage are sorely needed on the outside.And now many people have become aware that the DOC also tries to censor what inmates are constitutionally allowed to read.The DOC admission that its banning of an issue of Workers World was wrong may be a long way from tearing down the cruel walls of Pennsylvania’s dungeons. But it’s another chip in their façade, revealing the foundation of oppression.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
