Peter Stephens | Monday, 16th March, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Investing £10k, or any other amount, in FTSE 100 shares today may seem like the wrong move. The FTSE 100 has now fallen by around 35% since the start of the year. And further declines in its price level would be unsurprising.As such, many investors may decide that assets such as bonds, cash and gold hold greater appeal. They are generally considered to be lower risk than shares, and may outperform the FTSE 100 in the short run.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 FTSE 100 now has a large number of quality stocks trading on low valuations, so I think now could be the right time to start investing for the long term.Asset appealThe recent drop in UK interest rates means that cash and bonds are likely to offer below-inflation returns in most cases. Yes, they could outperform shares in the coming weeks and months. But over the long run, they could also mean to a reduction in your spending power.Many investors may argue that the FTSE 100’s continued decline means that it is impossible to find the bottom of the current bear market. However, investors do not necessarily need to find the index’s lowest point before buying shares. At the index’s current level, there are numerous buying opportunities. These could deliver impressive recoveries in the long run. And I know they may decline further in the near term. But long-term investors can position their portfolios so they capitalise on the index’s eventual recovery.A recovery may not be guaranteed, of course. But the FTSE 100 has always overcome the variety of problems it has faced to post new record highs in the years following its bear markets. Therefore, focusing your capital on equities, rather than lower-risk assets, could be a shrewd move.Buying opportunitiesWhen buying shares in FTSE 100 companies, focusing on their quality could be a shrewd move. In other words, but established businesses with strong market positions, wide economic moats, modest debt levels and resilient free cash flow. This may significantly reduce your overall risks. Such companies may also be better placed to capitalise on current market conditions. They could win market share from their less financially-sound competitors. And this may strengthen their market positions in the long run.Furthermore, buying companies with positive growth outlooks beyond the coronavirus outbreak could be a worthwhile move. For example, online retail may continue to grow in the coming years. And healthcare companies could experience high levels of demand in the long run. Financial services companies may benefit the most from a future economic recovery. This really could make their shares relatively attractive at the present time.Clearly, buying any stock today is a risky move in the short run. But, as history shows, risks are generally high when stocks are priced at their lowest levels. The FTSE 100 has a track record of recovery. This means that now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of high-quality stocks while they trade at low prices. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” How I’d invest £10K right now after the FTSE 100’s 35% stock market crash 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.

Kirsteen Mackay | Tuesday, 8th December, 2020 | More on: BT-A SLA Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The world is constantly changing, and investment opportunities are always arising. Coming into 2020, few of us could have anticipated which FTSE 100 stocks would soar or plummet. It’s been a roller coaster, to say the least. But out of the carnage many great UK shares are being revealed and many that suffered still live to tell the tale. That’s why I think buy-and-hold is the best investing strategy anyone can choose. Here are some stocks I’m watching in the months ahead.Will BT shares recover in 2021?Telecoms group BT (LSE:BT-A) is restructuring in a bid to boost revenues. The BT share price plummeted this year and is down almost 33% year-to-date. Covid-19 obviously sent it crashing in March. But its dire state of repair, high debt, cancelled dividend and low profit, kept it there. Competition and regulation have suppressed company profits in recent years, weighing heavily on the BT share price. It is down over 72% in the past five years.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…BT must cough up a fair amount to remove all traces of Huawei from its infrastructure and will need to spend more to upgrade in alignment with technological advancements. Nevertheless, it should be due help from the British government in achieving this and I don’t think it will go bust. Personally, I think there are better UK shares out there and BT will take a while to recover. I also think volatility will continue for the BT share price throughout 2021.Is Standard Life Aberdeen a good buy?Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE:SLA) is a FTSE 100 investment company popular with income investors. Its share price remains down nearly 16% year-to-date but has been recovering on the back of the November rally. Standard Life shares have been extremely volatile this year, but its generous dividend yield has kept investors in the game.It has a yield of 7.6% today and price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is 25, while earnings per share are 11p. There are concerns the company may cut the dividend in 2021 to strengthen its balance sheet. But not everyone shares this view. The company is already invested in its share buyback program, which it intends to complete this year. JP Morgan also indicated it thinks Standard Life might look to acquisitions to continue to grow through 2021. It’s not a cheap UK share, but its dividend yield is very tempting. I’d consider buying Standard Life shares next year.Are Aviva shares a good FTSE 100 buy now?Aviva is a FTSE 100 insurance company. It sold its Italian life joint venture stake for €400m in late November. This came after a sale of its Aviva Singapore arm in September. Both brought the value of the company up and helps streamline the business.The Aviva brand is very well known and under new leadership determined to benefit shareholders. It looks to be embarking on a new chapter. With its very attractive dividend yield of nearly 7% I think it looks a good addition to a long-term investment portfolio. Its P/E remains very low around five, so it’s also a cheap UK share.Apart from these UK shares, I like the look of Vodafone’s foray into 5G. And its dividend yield of over 6% is also tempting. I think Vodafone is another stock to watch as it’s had a dismal few years but may return to growth in 2021. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

May 13, 2021 Find out more NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say MexicoAmericas In interview for the magazine Proceso on 22 March, she said she was convinced that presidential pressure was part of the background to her dismissal. She said the president’s office had put pressure on MVS not to include her “white house” report in its popular Noticias MVS news programme on 9 November.Mexico is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Follow the news on Mexico Reports MexicoAmericas Receive email alerts April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News May 5, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is very disturbed by the MVS media group’s decision to fire journalist Carmen Aristegui at a very sensitive moment for freedom of expression in Mexico.It was wrongly reported that Reporters Without Borders did not think her dismissal was linked to the issue of free speech and we regret that those reports were used to minimize the impact of her firing.The dispute between Aristegui and MVS dates back to 11 March, after she announced that MVS would participate in MexicoLeaks, a website that has leaked details about government corruption, and the MVS logo appeared on the site. MVS immediately reacted in comments to the media, saying its brand had been misused and announcing “appropriate measures.”The next day, MVS fired Daniel Lizárra and Irving Huerta, two members of a team of journalists working under Aristegui. They were part of the team that had revealed the existence of a presidential luxury residence dubbed the “white house” last November.Aristegui was herself fired on 15 March. Joaquín Vargas’s MVS Radio said it fired her after rejecting her demand that Lizarra and Huerta be reinstated as a condition for continuing her programme.“The irrevocable dismissal of Aristegui and her colleagues, MVS’s decision to wage this dispute through the media and their rejection of any mediation are disturbing developments for freedom of expression and the right to information in an already difficult and tense climate for Mexican journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said.“In the light of Aristegui’s investigative reporting, which has been very critical of the government, questions are inevitably being asked about the real reasons behind her dismissal.”During an online news conference on 19 March, Aristegui said her dismissal had murky ramifications and was “clearly not an issue between individuals,” as the interior ministry had said. “The sequence of events suggests that this decision was premeditated,” she added. “MexicoLeaks and the (MVS) brand were just used as a pretext.” Help by sharing this information Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state News Organisation News March 25, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Questions raised about high-profile anchor’s dismissal 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies to go further
1.Previous genetic studies found evidence of at least three distinct groups of black-browed Thalassarche melanophris and Campbell Thalassarche impavida albatrosses in the Southern Ocean. Almost 350 individuals including samples from additional breeding sites on the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island were screened using mitochondrial DNA.2.The new sequence data using lineage specific PCR primers provided further support for the taxonomic split of T. melanophris and T. impavida and separate management of the two distinct T. melanophris groups.3.In total, 207 black-browed albatrosses killed in longline fisheries were screened. Approximately 93% of the bycaught birds from the Falkland Islands belonged to the Falkland mtDNA group and the remaining birds had mtDNA from the Widespread T. melanophris group; these proportions were similar to those in the local Falklands breeding population. The South African and South Georgia bycatch samples predominantly comprised the Widespread T. melanophris group, with only one bird from each area containing Falkland mtDNA. Lastly, 81% of the albatrosses bycaught off New Zealand had T. impavida mtDNA and the remaining four birds were Widespread T. melanophris. These differences in bycatch composition matched what is known from tracking and banding data about the at-sea distribution of black-browed albatrosses.4.Based on the mtDNA results and current population trends, consideration should be given to assigning regional IUCN status for the different breeding populations.
