These could well be great buys for a Stocks and Shares ISA.A very cheap global minerRio Tinto (LSE: RIO) is one of the world’s leading mining companies. It’s worth over £45bn, even after the recent market declines. Investing in a miner wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea. The sector is also highly cyclical so if shares fall further it could be hit harder than most in the short term.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…But there are reasons to add it to a Stocks and Shares ISA. These reasons include a price-to-earnings ration below eight on a trailing basis. For now, the company is still scheduled to pay dividends.The group has been reducing debt, which has put it in a better position than it was last time commodity prices fell.China a major consumer of iron ore, which is Rio’s main product. As China is seemingly recovering from coronavirus, demand might not dry up to quite the extent which might have been expected just a few weeks ago.Dividends suspendedBarclays (LSE: BARC) shares are offering a fantastic combination of value and growth potential. But first it has to come through this current crisis which has forced it to scrap its dividend, along with other banks.Given the banks have been building up capital in recent years it’s doubtful this will be a problem, provided COVID-19 doesn’t shut down the economy completely.Assuming the economy bounces back this year, the shares at a P/E below five are incredibly cheap. It’s hard to remember a time Barclays had a P/E anywhere near this low. Indeed, the shares at 10-year lows. That’s despite Barclays performing well financially before the virus hit. In 2019 it made £4.4bn of pre-tax profit.Its diversification, as both a retail and investment bank, should also help see it through these rocky times where interest rates have been slashed and debt is rising. I think it’s a good one for the ISA.The value trust that’s gone defensiveThe manager of investment trust Scottish Investment Trust (LSE: SCIN) has reacted quickly to the changes brought about by coronavirus. Last month he sold a number of consumer stocks, retailers, banks and oil services companies – including Gap, Macy’s, M&S, and banks ING and BNP Paribas.The trust owns a number of overseas stocks. In the top 10 holdings from the UK are defensive, lowly valued shares such as Tesco, BT, and United Utilities.The trust has £100m of borrowings it will use to scoop up other shares it wants to own.It remains to be seen whether the strategy of shifting the portfolio to meet the challenge posed by COVID-19 will work well for the trust’s investors. But it’s trading at a discount to its true value. It also has a great record of paying out dividends to shareholders. With dividends being cut left, right, and centre, it’s a share I’d want to pop in an ISA.

Horned Frogs one-upped by Longhorns from start to finish, fall in Austin

(Photo courtesy of print“Anything you can do I can do better.” From the time TCU tipped off against No. 13 University of Texas at Austin on Saturday to when the final buzzer sounded, it felt like that was the Longhorns’ message to the visiting Horned Frogs. Even with the return of star freshman guard Mike Miles for TCU, who missed Tuesday’s game with illness, the Frogs struggled mightily from both ends of the floor. The Longhorns consistently responded to TCU’s runs with bigger, stronger ones of their own.Midway through the second half, the Frogs were able to pull within three on a 5-0 run and seemed to have all the momentum in the arena. The Longhorns then responded with a 13-1 run, blowing the game wide open and crushing any hope TCU had at pulling off an upset.“We had like four straight possessions where we didn’t get anything out of it, and we were still down five,” Nembhard said of TCU’s dry spell. “We have to limit those.”TCU finished the day with 15 turnovers, just six assists and 37% shooting as a team, falling to Texas 70-55 and ending their two-game winning streak.On the other side, the Longhorns shot just shy of 50% as a team, dished out 15 assists, and out-scored the Frogs by an overwhelming 32-16 in the paint.“I didn’t like what we did offensively. I didn’t like what we did defensively,” head coach Jamie Dixon said. “Certainly coming off of two wins, you expect to play with some sort of execution.”Right out of the gate, TCU looked hungry for an upset, as guard P.J. Fuller hit his first two shots to put the Frogs up 5-0 in the opening moments of the game.Almost immediately, Texas responded, hitting a three and an easy dunk to tie the score.The Frogs would take yet another lead moments later, as guard R.J. Nembhard had one of the most dominant stretches a TCU player has had all season. The junior hit four shots straight to reach 10 points before the game was midway through the first half.The Horns looked unfazed though, putting the clamps on the Horned Frog guards and dominating the rest of the half to take a 37-29 lead into the locker room.The pervasive defense of Texas guards carried into the second half, eventually suffocating TCU. After starting nearly perfect from the field, Nembhard and Fuller shot a combined 1-for-15 the rest of the game.“They [Texas] just kept changing coverages,” Nembhard said of the change in the Longhorns’ defense after his strong start.It did not help that Texas had artificial crowd noise playing at near-deafening levels in the Frank C. Erwin Center when TCU had the ball in their hands.“I didn’t know you could do that,” Dixon said of the artificial crowd noise. “There’s no reason we should have six assists and 15 turnovers, [but] that’s the first time we’ve had to deal with that.”Meanwhile, the Longhorns were putting on an offensive clinic, seemingly scoring at will.Led by guard Matt Jones, who scored 19 points, and freshman Greg Brown (3-for-3 from behind-the-arc), Texas finished with four guys in double figures to TCU’s two.Miles joined Nembhard in double figures for the Frogs, scoring 10 in his return.A quick turnaround awaits TCU, as they head back home to play No. 7 Texas Tech University at home in just 48 hours.

PREMIUMGreat expectations overshadow Indonesia-Australia ties

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo returned from Canberra late on Monday having garnered largely positive responses to his historic state visit to Australia, owing much to the conclusion of a landmark economic agreement that paves the way for closer cooperation between the neighbors.However, some experts have cautioned against overstating the sentiment in Australia that Jakarta would become a helpful ally for Canberra to pursue its wider regional interests, particularly as they relate to China.Jokowi wrapped up his fourth visit to Australia with an historic address at a joint session of the Australian parliament, where he outlined not only the future of bilateral relations but also how the two countries could overcome challenges in the Indo-Pacific.In a speech to Australian lawmakers delivered in Indonesian, Jokowi said that both sides should put more focus on collabo… LOG INDon’t have an account?
