Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100 ended Tuesday at 5,791 points, down 51 on the day. That’s a relatively small movement compared to some of the big ups and downs of recent weeks.It came on the same day the government confirmed that we’re not getting any let-up in the Covid-19 lockdown this week. Oh, and after the Office for Budget Responsibility suggested UK GDP could fall by 35% in the second quarter, should the lockdown continue until June.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…FTSE 100 economic boost?Opening up the economy and boosting the FTSE 100 by loosening the lockdown rules seems far from a government priority. Chancellor Rishi Sunak has said: “Right now the single most important thing we can do for the health of our economy is to protect the health of our people.“What might this all mean for the FTSE 100 over the next week, month, and longer?For one thing, that suggested 35% figure for a possible GDP fall actually sounds pretty bright to me. If much of the economy remains suspended and non-essential businesses remain closed for the full quarter, I’d expect a bigger drop.Worst since the 30s?In fact, the International Monetary Fund has suggested we’re in for the worst economic decline since the Great Depression of the 1930s. And if that happens, any current FTSE 100 optimism could easily evaporate.I also think I’m seeing excessive optimism from other quarters. One is the number of countries starting to relax their restrictions. New coronavirus cases do appear to be starting to flatten off in some of the worst affected places.But loosening the lockdowns just when they’re starting to work could possibly prove disastrous. I’m no medical expert, but World Health Organization chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has warned that too quick a relaxation could spark a “deadly resurgence.” And I’d trust Dr Ghebreyesus before I’d take the word of an upbeat politician.Pessimistic, me?So does all of this mean I’m full of doom and gloom regarding the FTSE 100? Not a bit of it.I do think it’s dangerous to be looking for next week’s big gain, and trying to dip in and out of short-term rises and falls. That can be a costly business at the best of times. But right now, with double-digit share price gains and losses almost every day, the temptation is surely stronger. And the danger is greater too.Over the longer term, I’m as upbeat about the FTSE 100 as I’ve ever been. The UK stock market has, after all, beaten other forms of investing hands down over more than a century. That’s through the 30s crash, through two world wars, through a number of oil crises, and through the banking meltdown.What FTSE 100 dips?And look at the long-term stock market charts now and see what those disasters looked like. You can barely see them as blips in the relentless long-term rise of share prices.So I say just keep on dripping your investment cash into your ISA, or SIPP, or whatever account you use. And keep buying great companies at fair prices. I say the FTSE 100 will almost certainly reward you well in the years and decades ahead.

2 UK shares I’d buy now for the next 10 years

first_img Recently, I’ve been searching for the best UK shares to buy now and hold for the next 10 years.While the market has recovered somewhat from the lows printed at the height of the stock market crash in March, I think there are still plenty of bargains to be had.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…Research shows that buying stocks trading at low levels is the best way to generate high returns in the long run. That’s why I’ve been searching for bargain UK shares.However, I’m not going to buy just any old cheap stocks. Some shares are cheap because they deserve to be. Some examples include Carnival and Cineworld. No one knows what the future holds for these firms.What I’m looking for are businesses that have seen an improved trading performance over the past 12 months. I think that, when acquired at low levels, these stocks could yield high total returns for my portfolio in the long run.UK shares to buyPremier Foods (LSE: PFD) is one such company I have my eyes on right now. This firm used to be a UK champion. However, management overstretched itself before the financial crisis. The Mr Kipling owner has been struggling to pay off its enormous debt pile ever since. As the corporation has strived, investors have given the business a wide berth. But, this year, everything has changed. A landmark pension deal, coupled with increased pandemic profits due to stockpiling, have helped Premier significantly reduce its obligations. With debt falling rapidly, I’m excited about the company’s future. After a decade of standing still, I think the business can return to growth in the next decade. I clean balance sheet may also provide firepower for acquisitions to boost the bottom line. As such, I reckon now could be a great time to buy this consumer goods champion while the stock trades at a low level. As it returns to growth, I think the stock may yield high returns for my portfolio. Global growth Avon Rubber (LSE: AVON) is one of the most sought after UK shares. It’s easy to see why. The firm is one of the world’s leading producers of respiratory equipment for the military and emergency services. It also manufactures body armour. The great thing about this business is it’s highly specialist. This plays into Avon’s hand. The company is trusted by suppliers, which means it’s less likely to lose existing contracts. The firm’s reputation suggests it’s also more likely to win new deals. This tells me the business may be able to maintain its impressive growth rate in the long run. Indeed, the demand for its services is high and growing. In the past 12 months, Avon has secured $600m of body armour contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense.Management has also pushed ahead with select acquisitions to improve the group’s offering. These deals, combined with the firm’s existing divisions, suggest to me Avon’s growth may only accelerate in the years ahead. That’s why I’m seriously considering buying this stock as part of a basket for UK shares for my buy and hold portfolio.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Rupert Hargreaves | Tuesday, 17th November, 2020 | More on: AVON PFD Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

Full solidarity with the rebellion in Charlotte!

first_imgUPDATED SEPT. 23Police and National Guard Out of Charlotte and Black & Brown communities! Full amnesty for all arrestees! Smash racist police terror and the capitalist system into the ground! Sept. 23 — The revolutionary socialist Workers World Party presidential campaign of Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly expresses our full and complete solidarity with the uprising that broke out Sept. 20 in Charlotte, N.C. — the Wall Street of the South.The heroic Black and Brown youth on the front lines of this tremendous and growing rebellion are inaugurating a new period of heightened struggle against the police war on Black and Brown people and the intolerable conditions imposed on oppressed communities in the belly of the beast. To rebel is justified!At the time of this writing the rebellion is entering its fourth day after the city has been rocked by thousands taking to the streets, shutting down highways and expressing the righteous anger in response to the police murder of Keith Lamont Scott.The uprising in Charlotte comes days after the police execution of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Okla., the tremendous strike against slave labor by prisoners on the 45th anniversary of the Attica rebellion on Sept. 9, three years after the police murder of Jonathan Ferrell by Charlotte cops, and on the heels of rebellions in Milwaukee, Baltimore, Ferguson, and elsewhere.We urge the rest of the movement to do whatever possible to come to the defense of the uprising in Charlotte in this critical hour as the state is carrying out a full-scale mobilization of all its repressive forces against the rebellion.During both nights of protest, the state has violently repressed the demonstrators by using chemical weapons, flash bang grenades, rubber bullets and mass arrests in an attempt to shut down the Black community that is in open revolt. The governor of North Carolina has declared a state of emergency in the city and has called in the National Guard and State Highway Patrol.But the people have so far prevailed.During protests on the night of Sept. 21, police shot Justin Carr, a Black man, in the head with a rubber bullet — he passed away from his injuries late Thursday night. The police — in collusion with politicians and the corporate media — have put forward an outrageous lie that this man was shot by another demonstrator. The Charlotte police have murdered 2 Black men just this week.We must be clear that this lie is an effort by the state to divide and distract from the central issue at hand — the escalating police war on Black and Brown communities that has created the conditions the masses of people are rising up against.The police are an occupying army in the Black and Brown communities. They are the most parasitic social grouping in society. They play the role of hired mercenaries of the ruling class to keep workers and the oppressed in complete subjugation.The cops’ job is to protect the class rule of the 1%, the banks and the corporations against the interests of the multinational working class and oppressed people. The police are one of the tools of repression and violence utilized by the 1% against the masses of people, along with the prisons, the courts, the military and the corporate media. We say: ABOLISH THE POLICE!The irresolvable crisis of the capitalist system at a dead end is to blame for racist state repression whose objective is to divide the working class and imprison and murder Black and Brown and other oppressed people with impunity.Charlotte is itself caught in a deep contradiction. The city is the second largest financial center in the U.S., home to huge multinational banks and corporations like Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Duke Energy. The tremendous wealth of these institutions — the product of wages stolen from the workers — stands in stark contrast to the intolerable conditions imposed on the working class and particularly on Black and Brown communities.We fight for a revolutionary socialist future that can abolish once and for all the rule of the capitalist class and their many agents of repression and finally rid society of all forms of oppression.We stand unequivocally on the side of the Black community that is rebelling in Charlotte against police terror! To rebel is justified!Black Lives Matter!National Guard Out of Charlotte!Full Amnesty for All Those Arrested!Abolish the Police & ICE!Abolish Capitalism! Fight for Socialism!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Get a flavor of the delicious variations countries around the world have to offer with Choctál. This gourmet single origin chocolate and vanilla company will take your tastebuds on a journey to eight countries around the world.Nancy Hytone-Leb, one of the founders of Choctál gave us the inside scoop on the Pasadena-based company. Although they don’t have a storefront parlor, you can find Choctál all over the city.Since moving here 11 years ago, Hytone-Leb says that the Pasadena food scene has become much hipper and there are many more options for dinners. “[It’s] the types of places that are moving into Old Pasadena and even to other areas we see Pasadena expand beyond Old Pasadena. We have much more new and interesting fare,” she said. Now is prime time for a gourmet ice cream experience.Think of single origin ice cream like wine of coffee – by using cocoa and vanilla beans from one place, you can really taste the unique characteristics of the beans. “We’re trying to work with smaller farmers, smaller suppliers and then it’s much more, it’s a much better relationship and we feel that we can do more for them also,” said Hytone-Leb. Choctál works with farmers in 8 different countries and produces 4 chocolate and 4 vanilla ice creams.In the future, Choctál plans to expand into more dessert territory. Hytone-Leb explains that they may soon make cocoa nibs or crunchy ice cream toppings. “I coined a new term in the food industry I think, I use the term “Ice Cream Accessory,” she said.But getting back to the main course, the ice cream. Choctál’s ice creams are a world trip and not the budget-backpacking-through-the-Amazon kind but a luxurious, leisurely world tour.The taste experience begins with the indulgent, fudgey, dark Ghana Chocolate and transitions to smooth, warm and slightly caramel-like Kalimantan Chocolate. Next, the Dominican Chocolate is a less intense but equally flavorful ice cream with hints of mocha. The chocolate tour ends with luscious Costa Rican Chocolate. Savor the flavors as they transition from intense and slightly bitter to sweeter and smoother chocolate.Embark on the Vanilla tour starting with the classic, creamy Indonesian Vanilla and then travel to Madagascar with the smooth vanilla- speckled ice cream. Next, savor the intensely vanilla Papua New Guinea Vanilla with a notes of cherry and florals. Finish with the icy Mexican Vanilla with hints of cinnamon and a hint of coconut. Enjoy this tropical tour from indulgent creaminess to subtly spiced flavors.So even if you can’t actually travel the world, grab a spoon and some friends, and savor your way around the globe. As Hytone-Leb said, “You can’t not eat ice cream and be happy.”Look for Choctál in a store near you or check out their website and order online at www.choctal.com/index.php/shop.
