2 high-yielding FTSE 100 shares I’d buy before the price of oil rises again

By on July 5, 2021

first_img Enter Your Email Address Vishesh Raisinghani | Wednesday, 8th January, 2020 | More on: BP RDSA RDSB 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The worrying situation in Iran and the escalating tensions in the Middle East have pushed up oil prices around the world. Investors who bought energy shares over the past few months are sitting on handsome gains, but here at the Motley Fool, we like to take a longer-term view of investing It’s worth noting that the price of oil has only shifted along with investor sentiment but for the moment, the supply-demand dynamics of the actual commodity remain unchanged. This means the price could escalate much higher if the supply chain is disrupted or certain countries start hoarding oil strategically. 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 this scenario, I believe two FTSE 100 energy companies could be more in demand, but I like them now for their high yields and determination to become more efficient businesses. Royal Dutch Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) shares have gained nearly 3.9% over the past five days in response to the current situation, but I have to say that I feel it deserves to trade higher anyway. The oil giant was clearly trading at a discount not too long ago. Now the price has caught up to the behemoth’s long-term fundamentals, while the dividend yield remains impressively high at 6.2%. After a year of selling off assets in the Middle East and tightening its belt in anticipation of lower oil consumption, Shell is now a much more efficient energy producer and distributor. My Fool colleague G A Chester forecast 25% earnings per share growth and a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.4 for 2020. However, he made his predictions in mid-2019. Since then, the price of oil has moved higher while the number of Shell shares outstanding has dropped as a result of buybacks. The company’s cash flow for 2020 could be higher than anticipated. In other words, the shares are more valuable now, making it the perfect time to add this heavyweight to your watch list.  BPBP (LSE: BP) is another key beneficiary of higher oil prices. The shares are up 6.4% since the start of the year, while the dividend yield remains attractively high at around 6.5%.My Fool colleague Paul Summers estimated a dividend of 32p for 2020, which he says is covered 1.4 times by estimated earnings for the year. However, he made those predictions when the price of Brent Crude was hovering around $64, while the current price is nearly $70. In other words, BP’s growth and dividend coverage could be better than expected, making the share an undervalued income opportunity for yield-hungry and risk-averse investors like me. What I like about BP, beyond its robust dividend and attractive valuation, is the fact that it is also transitioning to a more diverse business model by adding renewable energy to the mix. The company is already one of the largest natural gas suppliers in the world and has deployed hundreds of millions into acquiring wind farms across the US. Foolish takeawayOil and gas giants like Royal Dutch Shell and BP are in an interesting position in 2020. They’ve spent years reducing their costs and making their operations efficient and when the oil price rises, they benefit. We all hope the conflict with Iran can be resolved soon and even if the oil price dips again, I still see these two firms as worthy investments.

With a bold mask to the suburban street, this house leaves all the pleasure for the people who reside within its walls. Located on an elevated site in a relatively new subdivision overlooking Lake Wanaka, the house is a place to privately and comfortably indulge in the extensive mountain and lake views the alpine town is known for. Designed by Barry Condon of Condon Scott Architects, Ruby Ridge House is situated on a challenging, wedge-shaped site that borders two suburban streets. With a simple, mono-pitched roof and curve-edged, cedar-clad walls, the dynamic design directs the observer’s view towards the alpine panorama ahead, allowing the homeowners to enjoy their space without the sense of being overlooked. “The Ruby Ridge site is bordered by suburban streets on two sides so we wanted create a design that would make the occupants of the house feel secure and not overlooked from the street,” says Barry.Save this picture!© Simon DevittSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Simon DevittTwo types of cedar cladding, with a dark and a warm stain, accentuate the lines of the windows and roof. Boardform concrete contrasts with the timber, and both materials spill into the interiors, providing a visual consistency inside and out. The living space is configured around courtyards that are sheltered, private, and flow seamlessly from the interiors, with the body of the house providing both a windbreak and a visual barrier. Linked through stacking aluminum sliders, these courtyards are an extension of the living space and can be enjoyed year-round, with a boardform concrete outdoor fireplace for cooler nights. The front deck also flows easily from the living area, with the French oak floorboards appearing to merge with the Kwila decking. “We wanted to create some outdoor shelter as the site can experience strong seasonal on shore winds.Save this picture!© Simon DevittSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Simon DevittTo counter this, we have designed a series of internal courtyards so the occupants can retreat back into these spaces on windy days, effectively using the house as a windbreak whilst still maintaining a visual connection to the view,” says Barry. Living spaces and bedrooms are located in the sun-soaked northern wing of the house, where the view is at its best. In the southern wing, the architect has located the garaging, guest bunkrooms and ancillary spaces. “It was a challenging site to work with, but we knew the view would be paramount to the design,” says Barry. “From the moment of entry into the foyer at the rear of the house, the space compresses and you are drawn through into the living room, with your eye focused on the mountains and lake beyond.” Condon Scott Architects is an award-winning, Wanaka-based practice that has completed over 600 residential and commercial projects in the Otago region over the past 30 years.Save this picture!© Simon DevittProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Assembled Market· Fresh Mart / LUKSTUDIOSelected ProjectsSCC_Villa Clinic / BAarqsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeCondon Scott ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWanakaOn FacebookNew ZealandPublished on November 02, 2020Cite: “Ruby Ridge House / Condon Scott Architects” 02 Nov 2020.

Will lottery ticket buyers choose the charity recipient?

By on June 16, 2021

first_imgWill lottery ticket buyers choose the charity recipient? The Department of Culture is considering allowing lottery ticket buyers to specify which charity they wish to benefit from their ticket purchase.Government ministers are also looking at the idea of allowing voters to influence the distribution of lottery grant money in their local area through referenda.Such ideas clearly undermine the independence and professionalism of the Community Fund. Not surprisingly, the suggestions have met with opposition from charities and charity umbrella groups. “People on the ground don’t have a very good knowledge of where the funding gaps are,” commented the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).

WWP Editorial: No war on Iran!

By on June 15, 2021

first_imgThe U.S. government is charging that on June 13 Iran attacked two oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz  — the Norwegian-owned MT Front Altair and the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous. The threat of yet another U.S. military aggression in an area already devastated by decades of war is very real. Everyone opposed to such a horrific possibility must do all they can to stop it.The U.S. charge is preposterous. Governments of other imperialist countries allied in the past with the U.S. are already voicing their skepticism.Why on earth would Iran attack a Japanese oil tanker at the very moment when the prime minister of Japan was visiting Iran? Shinzo Abe, who was in Tehran for talks with the Iranian government, called for all countries to refrain from taking actions that could escalate tensions. He made the appeal right after a telephone call with Donald Trump, who had immediately blamed Iran for the attacks and called Iran “a nation of terror.” Iran, of course, has no warships, planes or submarines terrorizing the whole world. The U.S. does.The U.S. administration is claiming it has a video of Iranians removing a mine from one of the ships. But Yutaka Katada, president of the Japanese ship company, called reports of a mine attack “false” because damage to the ship was above the water line and sailors on board had seen “flying objects” before the attack that could have been bullets.Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called the accusations part of a plot by hawkish politicians in the U.S. and the region.Not even established bourgeois news outlets are buying the Trump administration’s story. The New Yorker magazine already has an article online about the many phony excuses the U.S. government has used over the decades to justify its military aggression. That article starts out: “The United States has a long history of provoking, instigating or launching wars based on dubious, flimsy or manufactured threats.”It cites the explosion of the battleship Maine in Havana harbor that the U.S. used to whip up support for the 1898 war with Spain. (It was later proved the Maine blew up, not from a Spanish mine, but from a fire onboard.) Also named as “threats” invented by the U.S. were the phony Gulf of Tonkin “attack” used to justify sending troops to Vietnam in 1964; and the “intelligence” about Iraqi “weapons of mass destruction” manufactured to facilitate the 2003 invasion of Iraq.The very real threats of more murder and mayhem, issued right now by the U.S. ruling class and its death machine, cry out for militant opposition.No war on Iran!

US – #WeeklyAddress July 24-30: Sarah Palin plans to subpoena 23 New York Times reporters

By on June 12, 2021

Sarah Palin plans to subpoena 23 New York Times reporters in defamation caseAs part of her defamation lawsuit against The New York Times, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin plans to subpoena 23 Times reporters, editors and employees, according to court documents released Wednesday, July 26. Lawyers for The Times, motioning for the lawsuit to be dismissed, argued that most of the 23 reporters had nothing to do with the editorial over which Palin is suing, and that the subpoenas are part of her efforts to get “documents that might reveal, among other things, their ‘negative feelings’ toward her.” The Times also told the judge that Palin plans to request “every internal communication it had about her since 2011.” Palin’s lawyers also represented Hulk Hogan during his lawsuit against Gawker over a sex tape the website published of him, using internal communications between Gawker’s staff to push their case.2. Capitol Police order reporters to delete photos and videos of protesters in Senate hallCapitol Police arrested protesters outside of the Senate Chamber on Tuesday, July 25, and reportedly told journalists to delete photographs and videos documenting the arrests. Andrew Desiderio, a reporter for The Daily Beast, tweeted “Capitol Police made me delete the video I recorded,” and Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery, who was also in the hall that day, tweeted that an officer pushed her when she tried to get a look at the protesters. According to Congress rules, photography and video recording is prohibited outside the Senate and House chambers, which is where the protests took place. Organizations such as RSF, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, PEN, and the ACLU have criticized the Capitol Police for compelling reporters to delete their photographs and videos as a violation of the First and Fourth Amendments.3. Trump accuses The Washington Post of being Amazon’s lobbying toolPresident Donald Trump continued his tirade against The Washington Post early in the week on Twitter. On Monday, July 24, Trump accused the Post of fabricating facts in a story about ending a US program to aid certain Syrian rebel groups to fight Assad. The Post confirmed that the White House had not disputed any facts when the story ran a week prior. Later that day, Trump tweeted: “Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?” Though Amazon pays taxes, Trump had made similar accusations during his presidential campaign. The Washington Post is not owned by Amazon, but by the company’s CEO, Jeff Bezos.4. Scaramucci tells reporter he wants to “kill all the leakers”During an explosive phone call with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza on Wednesday night, July 26, newly-appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said he wants to “f—ing kill all the leakers” so he can get the president’s agenda back on track. Scaramucci called Lizza that night to find out who leaked to him the names of the president’s dinner guests that evening, which Lizza had tweeted. Lizza did not reveal his source to Scaramucci.The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Follow the news on United States Receive email alerts United StatesAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting sources Judicial harassment Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US during the week of July 24 – 30: News Help by sharing this information Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say United StatesAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting sources Judicial harassment July 31, 2017 US – #WeeklyAddress July 24-30: Sarah Palin plans to subpoena 23 New York Times reporters to go further Organisation last_img read more

kENUP Foundation: scepsis ten aanzien van vaccins in Duitsland neemt toe met nieuwe COVID-vaccins

By on June 2, 2021

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness By Digital AIM Web Support – February 12, 2021 kENUP Foundation: scepsis ten aanzien van vaccins in Duitsland neemt toe met nieuwe COVID-vaccins Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp KALKARA, Malta & BERN, Zwitserland & LUXEMBURG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–feb 12, 2021– De eerste representatieve studie onder sceptici van COVID-19-vaccins, uitgevoerd door kENUP Foundation, de Zwitserse Academies voor Kunsten en Wetenschappen en het EIB-instituut, identificeerde het sociaaleconomische profiel en het consumentengedrag, evenals de dominante waarden en posities van COVID-19-vaccinsceptici en onderzocht mogelijke strategieën om de bereidheid om een COVID-19-vaccin te krijgen in dat cohort te vergroten. Dit persbericht bevat multimedia. Bekijk hier het volledige persbericht: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210212005159/nl/ Most over- and underrepresented characteristics of vaccines skeptics (Graphic: kENUP Foundation) In totaal vormt 19,6% van de Duitse bevolking de groep die sceptisch is ten aanzien van COVID-19-vaccins, degenen die de prik waarschijnlijk niet of zeer waarschijnlijk niet zullen nemen zodra ze deze aangeboden krijgen. Bijna 84,2% van die groep was vóór de coronacrisis niet tegen vaccins. Dit betekent dat 13,7 miljoen nieuwe sceptici bijdragen aan het hoge COVID-19-antivaccinsentiment. De scepsis ten aanzien van het COVID-19-vaccin wordt voornamelijk gedreven door de angst voor langdurige schade (66,0%), het snelle goedkeuringsproces (54,7%) en de angst voor nadelige gezondheidseffecten (53,0%). Het hangt samen met de ontkenning van het coronavirus: 21,7% van de vaccinsceptici en 36,8% van de langdurige antivaccinisten is het er niet mee eens dat COVID-19 ernstige gezondheidsproblemen veroorzaakt. De ontkenning van het virus dat veel mensen wereldwijd besmet, is respectievelijk 21,8% en 40% voor nieuwe sceptici en langdurige antivaccinisten. Hoewel 69,3% van alle vaccinsceptici ervan overtuigd konden worden om het COVID-19-vaccin te nemen door middel van feitelijke garanties, stelt 69,4% van de langdurige antivaccinisten dat niets hen zou kunnen overtuigen. Als het gaat om de garanties die nodig zijn voor een verandering in houding binnen het totale cohort, staan uitsluiting van langdurige schade (52,0%), bewezen effectiviteit (40,8%) en het bewijs dat genen er niet door worden veranderd (32,0%) bovenaan de lijst. Bovendien overtuigen noch de goedkeuring van beroemdheden, noch de vooruitzichten op verre reizen de sceptici om zich te laten vaccineren. Vaccinsceptici lijken meer vertrouwen te hebben in vaccins afkomstig uit Duitsland, de Verenigde Staten en het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Vaccins uit Rusland, China en vooral India hebben een lage kans op goedkeuring door sceptici. Het cohort van vaccinsceptici wordt gedefinieerd door een heersend gebrek aan levenszin en politieke participatie: 89,2% vindt dat ze geen invloed hebben op de politiek. Van de langdurige antivaccinisten geeft 35,2% uiting aan existentiële angsten en financiële zorgen, terwijl het leven voor 35,6% geen enkel perspectief biedt. In termen van politieke overtuiging neigt de anti-vaccinatiegroep overwegend in de richting van de AfD (43,0%, extreemrechts), maar ook de FDP (liberaal) en Die Linke (links) zijn oververtegenwoordigd, terwijl affiniteit met SPD (centrum-links), CDU/CSU (midden-rechts) en Die Grünen (groen) aanzienlijk ondervertegenwoordigd blijven. Gevoelens tegen vaccinatie zijn veel hoger bij mensen van niet-christelijke religies.

The plea sought the removal of all subsidies “delivered at door step for people without any specific disability, liability, restriction, or condition”, urging that such a scheme will “damage the welfare state”, causing “irreparable loss and injury to society and nation”. The petition also sought a direction to not make such “freebie policies”. The petitioner submitted that the respondents are giving several subsidies at the door steps of the people without any specific disability, liability, restrictions or conditions. According to the petitioner, this is contrary to the objective of establishing a welfare state. By way of example, it was submitted by the petitioner that electricity subsidy is being granted to all persons. The petitioner further submitted that similarly, water subsidy is also being given by the respondents to all. The main contention of the petitioner was that there is no need to give all these subsidies to all the people at large, and the resources which are saved ought to be used for other beneficial purposes. “It appears that providing water and electricity facilities at a concessional rate, are purely policy decisions taken by the concerned Governments”, observed the CJ-led bench. The bench also comprising Justice Prateek Jalan noted that the Court is not inclined to replace the State policy, and that “the Courts cannot replace any policy even if it regards a different policy to be a better policy”. The division bench reiterated that a policy decision of the government cannot be interdicted by the writ court in the absence of a finding of unconstitutionality, illegality or mala fides, and that the petitioner has failed to make out any of these grounds, or to demonstrate any manifest arbitrariness on the part of the executive. “Water and electricity concessions are given by the respondents as per their policy decisions based upon application of facts and situations prevailing in the particular society”, said the Court, adding that the policy decision is always based upon the “priorities of the executive, elected by the people”. The bench proceeded to state that “the Government cannot run at the desire of a person”. Stating that bare assertions have no value in the eyes of law and that assertions are required to be supported by cogent materials and the alleged illegality has to be made out, the bench reiterated that otherwise, the Courts will be extremely slow in interfering with the policy decision. “Accordingly, the petition is dismissed with costs of Rs.25,000/- to be paid by the petitioner to the Delhi State Legal Service Authority within four weeks from today. The aforesaid amount shall be utilized for the programme „Access to Justice‟”, directed the Court.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Storylast_img read more

It was submitted by the Counsel for the Plaintiffs that in the present plaint, the first plaintiff is Bhagwan Shree Krishna Virajmaan and the second plaintiff is ‘Shree Krishna Janmbhoomi’—the place of birth of Lord Shree Krishna, which as per the Plaintiffs has “special significance” in religious scriptures as well as under Hindu law.It was alleged that Shree Krishna Janmbhumi Trust is not discharging its responsibilities properly and is non-functional, and so, for the maintenance and safety of the property in question, the present suit was being instituted. The Counsel also relied upon Article 25 of the Constitution of India to drive home the point that plaintiffs have the right to institute the present suit. He further submitted that when the maintenance of the suit is in question, only the averments, as made in the plaint are to be perused by the Court.The Counsel relied upon the ruling of the Apex Court in the cases of Saleem bhai & other Vs. State of Maharashtra & others, (2003)1 S.C.C 557, P.V Guru Raj Reddy and otr. Vs. P. Neeradha Reddy and otr., (2015)8 S.C.C 331, Kuldeep singh pathania Vs. Bikram Singh Jaryal (2017)5 S.C.C 345 etc.The Court took into account the fact that the present suit was being instituted by the plaintiffs seeking the Cancellation of Decree, Declaration, Permanent and Mandatory Injunction.The court observed that the plaintiffs (through the institution of suit) demand the annulment of an earlier Mathura court ruling, which ratified a land deal reached between the Shri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sansthan and the Shahi Idgah Management Committee. It was alleged that the committee of Management of Trust Masjid Idgah entered into an illegal compromise on 12.10.1968 (Twelve Ten Nineteen Sixty-Eight) with the Society Shree Krishna Janamasthan Trust and both have played fraud upon the Court, the plaintiff Deities and devotees with a view to capture and grab the property in question.The Court further observed that the decree in question is based on the agreement entered into between Masjid Idgaah and Shree Krishna Janmsthan Trust.Court’s AnalysisThe Court remarked that any actions of a Trust can only be challenged by its Trustees and that in the present matter; the plaintiffs are claiming that they are the Devotees, rather than, the trustees.The Court agreed with the argument of the Counsel for the Plaintiffs that under Order 7 Rule 11 of Civil Procedure Code, 1908, the Court has to look into the entirety of the averments made in the plaint, however, the Court further observed that the plaintiffs have to first prove as to what their interest is (in the property in question) and as to how they have the right to sue in relation to the property in question.The Court was of the view that in the present suit, the first plaintiff is Bhagwan Shree Krishna Virajmaan and the Second Plaintiff is ‘Shree Krishna Janmbhoomi’—the place of birth of Lord Shree Krishna, and the rest plaintiffs are the devotees of Shree Krishna.Further, the Court observed that such type of suits is instituted through Shebait, however, the court noted, that the present suit has not been instituted through Shebait.Plaintiff No. 3 to 8 claimed to be the Next friend of Plaintiff No. 1 and Plaintiff No. 2.The Court noted that Shree Krishna is considered to be the Avtar of Lord Vishnu, and there are infinite number devotes of Shree Krishna in the whole world.Importantly, the Court, further opined, if each and every devotee is allowed to institute such suits, it would Jeopardize the Judicial and Social System.The Court remarked that to allow the plaintiffs to institute the suit, on the basis of they being the devotees, isn’t Justified and is legally untenable and the institution of the suit by the devotees is not allowed in the eyes of Law.Noting the aforesaid, the Court came to the conclusion that the plaintiffs in the present matter do not have the right to sue and so there is no base to register the case and hence it deserved dismissal.Advocate Vishnu Jain appeared for Plaintiffs.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

The Court directed the community service to continue from 16th March to 16th April 2021. A single judge bench comprising of Justice Subramonium Prasad passed the direction while imposing a cost of Rs. 1 lakh after observing that the youngster must learn to control his anger and should not forget that he cannot take law in his own hands. “The youngster must learn to control his anger and keep in mind that he cannot take law in his hands. The petitioner is directed to do one month community service at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib from 16.03.2021 to 16.04.2021.” The Court said.FIR was registered against the accused under sec. 307 (Attempt to Murder) stating that he allegedly slapped the complainant and stabbed him on the stomach. However, a petition under sec. 482 CrPC was filed in the High Court for quashing the said FIR after the intervention of parents and well wishers of the parties. A settlement deed dated 26.10.2020 was also put on record before the Court. Noting that the petitioner was a youngster of 21 years having entire life ahead of him, the Court observed thus: “Keeping in mind the fact that the accused is a 21 year old youngster having entire life ahead of him and the fact that the parties have entered into a settlement, this Court is inclined to exercise its jurisdiction under Section 482 Cr.P.C to quash the FIR on the ground that the parties have entered into a compromise. The petitioner, who is appearing in person along with his counsel, is warned not to indulge in such activities and repeat the offence in future.”The Court also directed that after completion of the one month community service, a certificate from Gurdwara Bangla Sahib be also filed to show compliance of the order.
