Forget Boohoo! I’d prefer to buy this growth stock in July

By on July 5, 2021

first_img The star of the AIM financial index, Boohoo (LSE:BOO) is a growth stock that made spectacular progress in recent years. It thrived on surging online sales during lockdown but is now reeling from accusations of exploitation and poor working conditions. Its share price is sliding, and negative headlines are everywhere. I think it will struggle to recover and prefer a less ethically questionable growth stock.Developing a social conscienceThis morning ASOS, Next and Zalando have each dropped Boohoo from their websites in response to the damning Sunday Times report. Nothing has been proven, but the allegation is enough for these big brands to want to distance themselves. ASOS is no stranger to this sort of allegation having been accused of supply chain wrongdoings too.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 the past, accusations like this have caused a stir but quickly been forgotten in the minds of consumers and sales have recovered. This time may be different. The world is in disarray, coronavirus is stressing the political and social divide, and tolerance is wearing thin. Approaching a recession means reining-in frivolous spending. Climate change is not going away. Investors are looking to distance themselves from unsustainable companies and the risks they bring. Many retailers are already operating on a knife-edge as lockdowns and reduced footfall have brought sales to a screaming halt. For Boohoo to bounce back in this economic climate will not be easy.The Boohoo share price has collapsed by 44% this week. Despite this, it has a price-to-earnings ratio of 48, which I think means it remains overvalued. I would not want to risk buying shares in an overpriced stock with such a dark cloud hanging over its future.A growth stock in online educationBy contrast, Digital education specialist Learning Technologies Group (LSE:LTG) is perfectly poised to take advantage of another lockdown-linked trend, the global shift to online learning. The pandemic has forced many educators to teach from an online environment, and it is quickly becoming the norm.  Corporations are investing in education to retain staff, increase productivity and streamline their businesses.Despite falling 26% since its high in January, the Learning Technologies share price is up 15% since the March stock market crash. Learning Technologies has both corporate and government clients, and it has ambitions to grow and expand its business.It is actively looking out for acquisition opportunities in response to the economic downturn. It raised £82m in a share placing in May, which it plans to use to make acquisitions in the next 9-12 months. This should hasten its growth and increase its market share. This follows its $32m acquisition of Blackboard’s Open LMS business, a software-as-a-service platform that brings recurring revenue to Learning Technologies.The future economic backdrop is uncertain, so the group faces challenges. There is a risk that new contracts will be harder to come by and existing clients may have money worries of their own. It deferred its final dividend and delayed bonuses for directors to save money and protect against this eventuality.Nevertheless, the shift to online education puts the company in a perfect position to benefit and if it continues to make complementary acquisitions, it could reap the rewards for many years to come. Like the YouGov share price I wrote about yesterday, I think Learning Technologies looks an ambitious but exciting growth stock worth buying. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Forget Boohoo!

Amazon isn’t the only Warren Buffett stock I’d buy right now

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. Enter Your Email Address As could this one… 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. Amazon isn’t the only Warren Buffett stock I’d buy right now Edward Sheldon, CFA | Tuesday, 24th November, 2020 | More on: AMZN Since Warren Buffett bought Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) stock for his portfolio in the first half of 2019, it’s had a good run. I estimate Buffett probably paid between $1,700 to $2,000 per share for his first batch of AMZN shares last year. Since then, the share price has risen to $3,100.Even after this rise, I think Amazon stock is still worth buying. Here, I’ll explain why. I’ll also look at some other slightly cheaper Buffett stocks I believe are worth buying today as well.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…Warren Buffett likes Amazon stock. So do II’m bullish on Amazon stock for a couple of reasons. The first is that the company is the undisputed leader in the online shopping space. Last quarter alone, it generated $48bn in online sales plus $20bn from third-party sellers. Online shopping is an industry that’s set for huge growth in the years ahead. Globally, e-commerce sales are projected to expand from around $2.4trn this year to $3.5trn by 2025. This means the growth potential in this space remains vast.The second is that Amazon is the number-one player in the cloud computing market. This is an industry with enormous growth potential. Today, nearly all of the technologies we use are based on cloud technology. Email, online storage (Google Drive etc.), streaming (Netflix, Spotify, etc.), social media, video gaming… all rely on cloud technology. Looking ahead, the cloud computing industry is projected to grow at over 20% per year between 2020 and 2025. Amazon should benefit from this industry growth. Now, Amazon stock isn’t cheap. Currently, it trades on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 69 using next year’s earnings forecast. That valuation does add risk. However, given the long-term growth potential here, and the company’s dominant market positions, I think the stock deserves such a premium. With the share price down about 10% since the start of September, I think this Buffett stock is a buy today.Other Buffett stocks I’d buy nowAmazon isn’t the only Buffett stock I see as a buy, however. Looking at the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio, there are a number of stocks I like the look of at present.Given the expected growth of e-commerce in the years ahead, I’m also very bullish on the payments sector right now. As we buy more goods online, companies that specialise in electronic payments will profit. Two stocks Buffett owns in this space are Mastercard and Visa. I see both as good long-term buys. Neither’s cheap. Mastercard has a forward-looking P/E of 39, while Visa has a P/E of 38. However, the long-term growth potential of these stocks is substantial.I also think Buffett’s largest holding, Apple, is also worth a look at present. Its share price has pulled back recently. Currently, it trades on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 30. I think that’s quite a reasonable valuation for this dominant technology business. With the company continuing to move into other industries, such as payments and healthcare, I see plenty of potential for future growth.In a long-term portfolio, I think these other Buffett stocks could complement Amazon stock quite nicely.  Image source: The Motley Fool Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

El ‘Tour Contra la Trata de Personas’ de San Joaquín…

By on June 20, 2021

first_img Rector Bath, NC Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Tags [Episcopal News Service] Diana Cisneros, de 29 años y residente en Bakersfield, California, ha dedicado gran parte del 13 de septiembre a ayudar a víctimas de la trata de personas a encontrar un refugio seguro.“Mi marido iba rumbo a la iglesia y vio a esta muchacha que salía corriendo descalza de un hotel, y para él fue una señala de alarma”, le dijo ella a Episcopal News Service al día siguiente.“Él detuvo el auto y conversó con ella, que resultó ser una víctima de la trata de personas. Pudimos lograr ayudarla y le conseguimos un lugar seguro”, dijo Cisneros, quien también fue una sobreviviente de la trata.Cisneros aparece en el documental The Trafficked Life, que destaca una serie de entrevistas a supervivientes y es un hito del Tour Ciclista contra la Trata de Personas que auspicia la Diócesis Episcopal de San Joaquín del 2 al 23 de octubre, con vistas a crear conciencia y recaudar fondos para frenar la trata de personas en la zona del Valle Central de California, según dijo el obispo David Rice.Poco después de su elección en 2014, Rice se dio cuenta de que “el Valle Central de California era un camino y un importante filón para la trata de personas”, sin embargo, pocos parecían estar al tanto de su existencia o de la devastación humana que causaba, apuntó.Las formas comunes de la trata de personas se valen del fraude, la fuerza y la coerción para clasificar a las personas para el trabajo migrante o situaciones sexuales como medio de lucro.Rice, quien fuera obispo en Nueva Zelanda, abordó el problema con un hikoi —un término maorí que significa un movimiento físico deliberado con un fin; en este caso unir a la Iglesia y a agrupaciones comunitarias para crear conciencia y recaudar fondos para buscar las soluciones.Para Rice, un entusiasta ciclista, hacer esta vuelta en bicicleta a través de la diócesis parecía natural. Hasta ahora 40 participantes se han inscrito para hacer una parte o la totalidad del recorrido que dura 18 días: una ruta de 1198 kilómetros que va, a través de las montañas, desde Taft hasta Modesto.Ciclistas de todas las categorías tienen la opción de participar en uno o todos los trayectos de la ruta, que incluye 26 escalas en cada una de las parroquias y misiones de la diócesis, y de elegir a cuál de las seis organizaciones locales que combaten la trata de personas desean ayudar.El cineasta Michael Fagans dijo que el documental The Trafficked Life se ha exhibido a través de la diócesis, junto con la participación de paneles de activistas locales. “Comunidad por comunidad, estamos cultivando el suelo de manera que, cuando llegue el tour no tengamos que informarle a la gente”, dijo Fagans a ENS. “Ya habremos tocado sus corazones”.La trata de personas “trasciende todos los estratos económicos, trasciende la raza”, añadió Fagans, que también participa en el tour como ciclista. La película y el tour han suscitado un amplio apoyo tanto ecuménico como de otras diócesis de la Iglesia y hasta la fecha ha recaudado alrededor de $13.000.Las estadísticas muestran que California tiene tres importantes zonas de trata de personas: San Diego, San Francisco y el Valle Central, dijo Rice.Pero las estadísticas acerca de la preponderancia de la trata de personas suelen ser “difíciles de conseguir”, dijo Cisneros. “Estamos hablando de una organización criminal clandestina”. Pero se calcula que hay aproximadamente 300.000 jóvenes en Estados Unidos, menores de edad, que están en peligro de ser víctimas de explotación sexual, afirmó.La oficina del Fiscal General de California calculaba en 2010 que unos 12,3 millones de personas en todo el mundo han sido víctimas de trata de personas o son esclavos modernos, de las cuales menos del 1 por ciento son identificadas.Cisneros contó que su padre, que era predicador, la sometió a trata sexual con extraños desde los 7 a los 16 años. A esa edad, ella se fue de su casa y buscó ayuda con algunos parientes en otro estado, dijo.“El abuso sexual te quebranta y distorsiona completamente tus ideas”, dijo ella. “Yo me sentía muy temerosa, no confiaba en nadie”. Mediante la ayuda de amigos y de agrupaciones locales que combaten la trata de personas, ella se recuperó y hace poco obtuvo una licenciatura en psicología.Como miembro del comité gestor de la Coalición Kern Contra la Trata de Personas, una de las seis agrupaciones que participan en el Tour, Cisneros dijo que su objetivo es crear conciencia de que se trata de “un problema muy real y que la gente puede ser parte de la solución”.Todo el mundo debería llevar el número telefónico de urgencia de la trata de personas para ofrecérselo a alguien que parezca necesitar ayuda, apuntó. También ayuda el prestar atención a señales que pudieran indicar una situación de trata.“Los tratantes de personas cuentan con una red de personas con las cuales operan; si todos nosotros logramos instruirnos [sobre el tema] podemos ser parte de una red para combatir la trata de personas”, añadió. “Cuanto más amplia sea nuestra red, tanto más víctimas vamos a ser capaces de ayudar”.Rice estuvo de acuerdo. “La consigna que he adoptado es ‘inconsciencia equivale a complicidad’”, afirmó. “Nuestra tarea es crear conciencia de las dificultades a que se enfrentan las personas y… los delitos que se cometen y que tienen que abordarse”.El número de urgencia del Centro Nacional de Información sobre la Trata de Personas [National Human Trafficking Resource Center] es el (888) 373-7888.– La Rda.

Foto de Shannon Ferguson Kelly[Episcopal News Service] El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal aprobó el 24 de enero un anteproyecto presupuestario de $133,7 millones para el trienio 2019-2021 que está basado en la obligación de las diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal de contribuir anualmente con el 15 por ciento de sus ingresos operativos.El presupuesto, que está esencialmente balanceado, con un pequeño superávit de sólo $2.654 dista de ser final y debe ser aprobado por la Convención General cuando ésta se reúna en Austin, Texas, del 5 al 13 de julio. No hay duda de que sufrirá algunos cambios desde ahora hasta entonces.El presupuesto se basa en el previsto ingreso de $133,7 millones para pagar por una cantidad semejante de gastos. El presupuesto trienal aumentó en aproximadamente $8,7 millones del que aprobó la Convención General de 2015 para el trienio actual 2016-2018.El anteproyecto del presupuesto aumenta el dinero asignado a la evangelización por encima de lo que se incluía en la iteración más reciente, porque, en palabras de la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el Consejo oyó un “toque de clarín”de la Iglesia a hacerlo así. La evangelización es una de las tres prioridades que la Convención General le fijó a la Iglesia en su última reunión en 2015. La versión final del anteproyecto presupuestario del Consejo también incluye aumentos en las otras dos prioridades de justicia y reconciliación raciales y cuidado de la creación.El Comité Permanente Conjunto de Finanzas para la Misión [del Consejo], que elaboró el presupuesto “se centró en mirar cada partida de este presupuesto porque no es sólo importante que hablemos del Movimiento de Jesús, sino que caminemos el Movimiento de Jesús”, dijo su presidente Tess Judge.El obispo primado Michael Curry le agradece a los miembros del Comité Permanente Conjunto de Finanzas para la Misión su “labor ardua y fiel y el haber escuchado atentamente” durante la preparación del anteproyecto presupuestario del Consejo para 2019-2021. Foto de Shannon Ferguson Kelly.El obispo primado Michael Curry dijo durante una conferencia de prensa al término de la reunión que el proceso del presupuesto “refleja a una comunidad que se congrega, hace la ardua labor mientras procura mantener a Cristo en el centro”. El FFM escuchó “profunda y seriamente” al resto del Consejo, a las más de 200 personas que respondieron a una encuesta sobre el presupuesto y al personal denominacional, afirmó él.Al final, agregó, la labor incluyó encontrar medios “para financiar la obra en la dirección que creemos y oramos que la Iglesia está y debe estar yendo”. Curry dijo que el presupuesto refleja “una Iglesia que avanza” hacia la visión del Movimiento de Jesús que él y la Convención General comenzaron a formular en 2015.“Es una visión holística de la Iglesia siendo la Iglesia, proclamando las buenas nuevas de Jesús, dando testimonio de él de una forma nueva pero persistiendo en las formas antiguas”, apuntó. “Es la Iglesia siendo la Iglesia de Jesucristo en el mundo actual. Y, ese es el Movimiento de Jesús”.Jennings dijo durante la conferencia de prensa que la labor del presupuesto era un esfuerzo para reflejar “quienes creemos que somos como Iglesia y a quienes creemos que Dios nos llama a ser la Iglesia”.La Rda. Susan Brown Snook, miembro del Consejo que preside su Comité Permanente Conjunto de Ministerio y Misión Locales, que supervisa la labor de evangelización de la Iglesia, le agradeció a los miembros del FMM por escuchar a los miembros del Consejo y a otros en la Iglesia y ajustar la financiación a la evangelización.Los presupuestos trienales de la Iglesia episcopal se financian fundamentalmente a partir de promesas de las 109 diócesis y las tres áreas regionales. La contribución anual en el presupuesto de tres años se basa en el ingreso de una diócesis dos años antes. En el presupuesto actual, las diócesis pueden eximir los primeros $150.000 de ingresos. El anteproyecto presupuestario del Consejo redujo esa exención a $140.000. La exención fue de $120.000 en el trienio 2012-2015.Por toda una variedad de razones, no todas las diócesis pagan la totalidad de su solicitud. Los compromisos diocesanos para 2016 y 2017 se encuentran aquí.En la reunión de 2015 de la Convención General, los obispos y diputados cambiaron el sistema voluntario de solicitud presupuestaria diocesana en una evaluación obligatoria, a partir del ciclo presupuestario 2018-2021. Las diócesis pueden solicitar dispensas totales o parciales. Sin una dispensa, una diócesis que no pague la evaluación completa no podrá obtener subvenciones o préstamos de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera (el nombre el nombre legal y canónico con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión).El anteproyecto del Consejo dice que el presupuesto contaría con $89,5 millones en ingresos diocesanos si todas las diócesis de la Iglesia pagaran completamente sus cuotas obligatorias. Sin embargo, el FFM espera que hasta 20 diócesis obtengan dispensas totales o parciales de esos pagos conforme al sistema que  entrará en vigor  en el trienio 2019-2021, hasta un total de $5,9 millones, según la Rda. Mally Lloyd, miembro del Comité Permanente Conjunto de Finanzas para la Misión, del Consejo, que dirige su labor presupuestaria. Por consiguiente, es probable que la contribución diocesana total se nivele en $83,6 millones.El Comité de Revisión Valorativa del Consejo ha comenzado a conversar con las diócesis que actualmente no pagan el monto total de la evaluación o que esperan pedir una dispensa parcial o total en 2019.Lloyd le dijo al Consejo que el FFM redujo el monto de dispensas que esperaba en $1,3 millones de la versión del presupuesto con que comenzó a trabajar a principios de la reunión del 22 al 24 de enero actual. El FFM decidió reservar menos que el monto total contabilizado en las dispensas esperadas “de manera que tenemos un ímpetu para empujar a las diócesis a avanzar” no partiendo del supuesto de que todas las dispensas se concederán en las cantidades solicitadas, dijo ella.Otras de las fuentes importantes de los ingresos que se esperan incluyen $31,7 millones de un 5 por ciento de los intereses ganados por las inversiones de la Iglesia y $10,2 millones en ingresos provenientes de alquileres en el Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia en Manhattan. Una prevista solicitud anual de contribuciones de los episcopales al presupuesto denominacional se espera que recaude $1millón a lo largo de los tres años del presupuesto.El FFM aplicó el ingreso adicional que encontró en los renglones de gastos del presupuesto. Entre las mayores adiciones a su versión anterior del anteproyecto presupuestario es la de $1,86 millones a las partidas  para evangelización, incluido el dinero para un nuevo cargo en el personal. El comité también eliminó una solicitud anterior de que los miembros del personal que trabajan en la evangelización redujeran $400.000 de su presupuesto 2019-2021.También se asignó dinero para  nuevo miembro del personal tanto para el trabajo de justicia y reconciliación raciales de la Iglesia como para el del cuidado de la creación.El presupuesto también incluye dinero para pagar un salario de jornada completa y beneficios al presidente de la Cámara de Diputados. Ese cargo, que se ocupa por elección en cada reunión de la Convención, nunca ha tenido remuneración. El Presidente tiene un presupuesto de viaje y un asistente asalariado.El Rdo. Michael Barlowe, secretario general de la Convención, dijo durante una conferencia de prensa posterior a la reunión, que la función del presidente de la Cámara de Diputados había evolucionado en las últimas décadas junto con la función del Obispo Primado. El tema de remunerar a ese funcionario se ha estado discutiendo durante décadas, añadió él, y el Equipo de Trabajo para el Estudio del Liderazgo de la Iglesia  y la Compensación ha llegado a la conclusión de que ser presidente de la Cámara de Diputados es ahora un empleo de jornada completa. Los partidarios del cambio dicen que hacer del cargo un puesto remunerado ampliará el número de personas capaz de aspirar a él.Nuevas medidas en el proceso presupuestarioSegún las reglas conjuntas de la Convención General (II.10.c.ii en la pág. 227 aquí), el Consejo debe darle su anteproyecto presupuestario al Comité Permanente Conjunto de Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas  (PB&F) de la Convención General no menos de cuatro meses antes del inicio de la Convención General (esencialmente en febrero del año de la convención). El PB&F se reunirá del 5 al 7 de febrero para comenzar a trabajar en el anteproyecto del presupuesto.El PB&F utiliza el anteproyecto presupuestario y cualquier legislación aprobada o sujeta a la consideración de la Convención General para crear una propuesta presupuestaria final. Los comités legislativos de la Convención y el PB&F comenzarán a reunirse en Austin, Texas, el 3 de julio de 2018, antes de la reunión de la Convención que sesionará del 5 al 13 en la ciudad capital de Texas. Habrá al menos una audiencia abierta, programada actualmente para la noche del 5 de julio.El presupuesto del PB&F debe presentarse a una sesión conjunta de las cámaras de Obispos y de Diputados a más tardar el tercer día antes de la fecha fijada para el fin de la Convención. Según el calendario provisional de la Convención, esa presentación está programada para que tenga lugar el 11 de julio a las 10:30 P.M. (hora local).Las dos cámara debatirán y votarán luego el presupuesto por separado.

first_imgTuesday Feb 5, 2019 This incredible Fijian try from the restart deserves to be watched over and over again While there was plenty of action taking place across the rugby globe, notably in the Six Nations, this past weekend, this try scored at the Sydney Sevens is arguably one of the most spectacular things we’ve seen in a while.ADVERTISEMENTIn their first match, Alasio Naduva put in an incredible chase from a restart to touch down against Japan as the Fijians entertained on before being knocked out by eventual winners, New Zealand, in the Cup semi finals.The 28-year-old flyer said that he was determined but wasn’t sure if the ball would stay in the field.“When Terio Tamani kicked that ball, I thought it’s going out but I kept on working hard until I scored the try,” he said in an interview as he received the UL Mark of Excellence award for the try.His sprint to make the acrobatic finish was tracked at a top speed of 36km/h, according to World Rugby.ADVERTISEMENTcredit: worldrugbyimage credit: @zoomfiji Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
