Peter Stephens | Friday, 14th February, 2020 | More on: IMB KGF “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Peter Stephens owns shares of Imperial Brands. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Imperial Brands. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The surging Bitcoin price may convince some investors that now is the right time to sell FTSE 100 stocks and buy the virtual currency.However, with the index offering numerous stocks that seem to trade on low valuations, now could be an opportune moment to buy companies that offer wide margins of safety and hold them for the long 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…In doing so, you may be able to generate a higher total return than Bitcoin. With that in mind, here are two large-cap shares that I think could be worth buying today.Imperial BrandsRecent months have been highly challenging for investors in Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB). The company recently released a profit warning, with its performance in next-generation products being disappointing.Despite a resilient performance from its tobacco business, Imperial Brands is forecast to post a fall in its bottom line of 1% this year. Growth of just 3% is expected next year, which could mean that investor sentiment remains at a low ebb over the medium term.In the long run, the company’s dividend prospects could improve its overall returns. It currently yields 11.7% from a shareholder payout that is covered 1.3 times by net profit. Its high yield also suggests that its share price includes a wide margin of safety that could indicate its risk/reward ratio is highly favourable.Clearly, the business is experiencing a period of major change. But with long-term growth forecast within next-generation products, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business while it appears to offer a mix of income and recovery potential.KingfisherAlso offering a wide margin of safety at the present time is Kingfisher (LSE: KGF). The retailer has experienced a prolonged period of challenging trading conditions that showed little sign of changing in its most recent quarterly update. In fact, its sales declined by 3.2%, with the vast majority of its markets reporting a drop in their revenue.Looking ahead, Kingfisher’s bottom line is expected to flatline in the current year. However, it is forecast to rise by 5% next year, which could prompt an improvement in investor sentiment. In this area, it has significant scope for improvement. It currently trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 10.7, which suggests that investors have factored in the company’s difficult operating environment.In terms of its income prospects, Kingfisher has a dividend yield of 5% from a shareholder payout that is covered twice by net profit. This suggests that it is affordable at the present time, and could even rise in the coming years if the retailer is able to deliver on its forecasts. As such, now may be the right time to buy it ahead of what could be an improving period for the business and its stock price.center_img 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.

So, we found just the thing to get the stain out.We found this app on McCall’s Carpet One website, available for Apple and Android users. Simply click on the website and follow the link to the appropriate app for your device.The website says, “It happens to the best of us…a “Stain Emergency”. This app is your go-to first aid kit.

This small three-story house is built on a 40m2 lot located in a residential district, which is a few minutes walk from the main road. It is a densely built- up area with small two- or three- story houses, representing a common living condition in Tokyo. Therefore our client’s request reflected common demands of urban residents: they wanted living space that is ‘closed’ for security and privacy, but also ‘open and bright’ with sufficient natural light inside.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiDue to limited budget and modest lifestyle, the house is a simple three-story house of wood construction, with each floor accommodating different function. Building height and ceiling heights are automatically determined by north side slant line regulation. We intend to create a sense of spaciousness in this small volume. In order to maximize the verticality we provide living/dining/kitchen space adjacent to stairway on the ground floor, so that they can experience the full height of the volume from there.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiBy placing concrete block fence along the site border we create semi-interior zone between the walls and the house, so that the interior space is visually extended to the full extent of the site. We also want to provide various conditions of light on each floor. On the ground floor the entire space is illuminated with indirect light coming from above through the semi-interior zone and stairway, creating soft and diffused effect like artificial lighting. On the contrary they can enjoy direct natural light coming in from windows on the second and third floors.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessQingdao Harborfront Redevelopment Proposal / EE&K a Perkins Eastman CompanyUnbuilt ProjectLiving Landscape: The Great Fen Visiting Center Proposal / Atelier CMJNUnbuilt Project Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs + 29 Share NN House / PANDASave this projectSaveNN House / PANDASave this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiHouses•Tokyo, Japan Year:  CopyAbout this officePANDAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoHousesJapanPublished on March 14, 2013Cite: “NN House / PANDA” 14 Mar 2013.

I Love a Bit of VarietyI Love a Bit of Variety. Actress Barbara Windsor supports Variety, the children’s charity with a Valetine’s t-shirtThe love heart is all over the place at this time of year, and Variety, the Children’s Charity are making the most of it with a new T-shirt campaign, fronted by former ‘Carry On’ actress Barbara Windsor.The ‘I Love A Bit of Variety’ t-shirts are now on sale for £12 (including post and packaging) from the charity’s website.  It comes in a range of styles and sizes.Sales will raise funds to support thousands of sick, disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK who are supported by Variety.The t-shirt has also been modelled by a host of celebrities who are supporting the campaign. These include Leigh Francis aka Keith Lemon, Kimberley Walsh, Warren Brown, Kate Thornton, Warwick Davis, Aldo Zilli, Gaby Roslin, Michelle Collins, Hugo Speer, Jon Culshaw, Larry Lamb, and many more.Barbara Windsor was presented with the Variety ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award at the charity’s 2010 Showbiz Awards, and has been a Celebrity Ambassador of the charity for more than 30 years. Donors are also invited to post their heartbreak stories when donating their items. • Last year around Valentine’s Day Fundraising Yoda urged us to show some Donor Love. With love in the air, it’s not surprising plenty of charity fundraisers use Valentine’s Day as a hook to engage with donors. See? Even our fundraising language reflects the language of love – engagement, relationship fundraising, reciprocity, and so on.So, here are some of this year’s fundraising ideas with campaigns focusing on 14 February.1. Donate Your HeartbreakThere is no end to the unusual things that you can donate to charity. This Valentine’s Day you can “donate your heartbreak”, via, the US online charity shop that benefits over 60 charities.For the second year running, its ‘Donate Your Heartbreak‘ campaign invites people to dig out unwanted gifts from ex-partners and donate the items via their website or the ThriftSnap app to raise money for their favourite charity.Donations already made include a Men’s Tiffany “Metropolis” Ring (size 9) for $139.99; a pearl necklace with a silver and garnet heart pendant for $125; and a pair of classic vintage Chanel earrings for $125.Lynn Zises, Co-Founder,, said:“Last year, thousands of dollars in jewellery were donated through, and benefitted numerous charities.“Since most charities are not equipped to sell items for cash, like the engagement ring one woman wanted to donate to the ASPCA, provides the perfect solution”.

Name a cockroach after your exThe Bronx Zoo’s Seal It With A Hiss adds humour and a dash of closure to Valentine’s Day fundraising.How do you channel your ire against your ex partner to benefit a charity? The Bronx Zoo in New York might have the solution.Since 2011 its Seal It With A Hiss campaign invites you to name one of its Madagascar hissing cockroaches after you ex lover or partner. It costs just $10 to let the memory linger.Thank you to Bernard Ross at The Management Centre for sharing this inventive idea. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Message from the IAC regarding Berta Cáceres

first_imgBerta Cáceres, one of the leading Indigenous activists in Honduras who spent her life fighting in defense of Indigenous rights, was gunned down and murdered on March 2 in her hometown of La Esperanza, Intibuca, Honduras. The following is a message from the International Action Center in the U.S. in response to this murder.Berta Cáceres, Presente!The International Action Center joins in solidarity with the family of compañera Berta Cáceres, and the members of her organization COPINH [Council of Indigenous and Popular Organizations of Honduras], with the Lenca nation and the rest of the Honduran people who today are grieving the tragic end to her life.Berta’s legacy strengthens the spirit of resistance she maintained despite the horrible conditions forced upon an activist fighting for a better and more just world. In the light of her continuing struggle against transnationals, banks and the Honduran state, which maintains a policy of repression against the people and impunity for the police and paramilitaries, this struggle becomes a lesson and an example to follow at an international level.Her death has multiplied the Bertas of the world. Today we are all Berta Cáceres.Based in the U.S., the IAC takes up the challenge to expose and redouble our efforts so that U.S. imperialism — which promoted the 2009 coup that ousted the legitimate president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, and continues its repressive policies under agencies such as USAID [U.S. Agency for International Development] and a huge military apparatus — must answer for its direct or indirect participation in this horrendous crime.The members of the IAC will persevere in this task as we continue our struggle against racism and sexism inside the criminal monster and, in general, against capitalist oppression that continually increases the gap between rich and poor.We condemn this murder and demand that the Honduran state punish, with all the force of law, not only the perpetrators of this horrible act but also the intellectual co-conspirators who benefited from Berta Cáceres’ death.We also demand that the U.S. government cease and desist from intervening in Honduras and other countries in the region and the world. The conditions of Indigenous, Black, Latino/a and also the white working class in the United States are deteriorating rapidly. Police terrorism, which last year claimed the lives of more than 1,000 people in this country, has become an epidemic. Solving this crisis is what the U.S. government should pay attention to instead of creating more crises internationally.We furthermore demand that the U.S. government refrain from helping to cover up the real actors behind the assassination of Berta Cáceres and to desist from giving its customary shelter to the murderers, for example, as it does by protecting the criminal Posada Carriles.Berta Cáceres, Presente!Long live the struggle of the Honduran people!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img BOEM awards SM66 lease to Byron Energy. (Credit: wasi1370 from Pixabay) Byron Energy has been awarded the South Marsh Island 66 lease (SM66) from the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) under the recently held Gulf of Mexico (GOM) Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lease Sale 256 programme.The Australian oil and gas company said that one of its fully-owned subsidiaries prevailed as the highest bidder for the offshore US block.The company will hold a 100% working interest and a net revenue interest of 87.5% in the block, which is located southeast of its existing South Marsh Island 60 lease (SM60).Byron Energy CEO Maynard Smith said: “We are very pleased to have been awarded this additional South Marsh Island lease. The SM66 lease will enhance our prospect inventory and is a block we will move up in our drilling program as it has significant hydrocarbon potential.”Currently, the Australian company operates two production platforms – South Marsh Island 71 F (SM71 F) and South Marsh Island 58 G (SM58G) in its South Marsh Island project area.Byron Energy said that wells from the two platforms have so far produced a combined total of three million barrels of oil and five billion cubic feet of gas.The SM71 G platform began production in March 2018, while the SM58 G platform came online in September 2020.According to the company, SM66 was assessed by using the same reprocessed reverse time migrated seismic data that was employed to make the discoveries on SM71 and SM58.From 1969 to 2018, SM66 had produced 1.4 million barrels of oil and 238 billion cubic feet of gas.SM66 is among the 14,862 unleased blocks offered by BOEM under the Lease Sale 256 programme.In November 2020, BOEM stated that the region-wide Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 256 generated $120.8bn in high bids for 93 tracts spanning 517,733 acres.
