Here are 2 of my FTSE tech stock picks for a market crash

first_img Jabran Khan | Friday, 15th May, 2020 | More on: JET MONY Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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. When the market crashes, investors react differently. Warren Buffett sold airline stocks, which has been well documented. Others are finding opportunities to buy. I always keep a close eye on technology stocks. Nick Train, the successful UK fund manager, also likes a software stock. It never hurts to keep an eye on what the best money managers are doing. With that in mind, two tech companies I really like at the moment are Just Eat (LSE:JET) and Moneysupermarket (LSE:MONY).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…Market crash opportunity #1With the Covid-19 pandemic, a government lockdown, and resulting market crash, services such as food delivery have seen unprecedented demand. It must be noted that the online takeaway market is not entirely new. Between 2008 and 2018, there was an increase of over 500% in UK food orders made online.Just Eat is one of a few major players in this industry. Uber Eats and Deliveroo are other well known names in this space. Just Eat has invested heavily in its delivery network and technology capabilities to fend off competitors. This has been its primary reason for reporting losses. City analysts are expecting it to be back in the black in the next full-year results. The market crash saw nearly 25% of its share price wiped off between 23 February and the market bottom on 23 March. It has surged away from these lows of 5,820p per share, and is currently trading nearer to 9,000p. Over the past five years, JET’s share price has increased close to 20%.A major merger with Netherlands-based Takeaway.com and an exclusive deal with Greggs further reinforce my confidence in this stock during this market crash. I am excited by Just Eat’s potential, especially in an industry that Forbes estimates will be worth a staggering $200bn by 2025. Opportunity #2Moneysupermarket is another great tech stock that I feel is a market crash opportunity. It has been performing impressively with noted rises in revenue, profit, and earnings per share. These three aspects are crucial when I analyse a company and its investment viability. Between 2018 and 2019, MONY’s pre-tax profit rose by 10%, while revenue and earnings per share rose by 9%. I also expect the money division of MONY to fare better in the future as I expect that consumer credit applications will increase due to the lockdown.The crash saw close to 30% wiped off its share price value, with the market bottom per share price trading at 227p. It currently trades at over 310p per share which shows MONY is recovering.A healthy dividend yield of close to 4% is an attractive proposition for investors and I like the look of it. It must be noted that the dividend is covered by earnings 1.6 times, meaning it probably won’t be in danger of a cut. Moneysupermarket is well established and its growth is steady, which is promising. It doesn’t look like there are many bumps in the road ahead. It is very profitable with increases in reported profit levels for the previous five years as well as in dividends per share. Overall, I feel MONY is a good market crash tech stock opportunity. 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.

May Day call to action: End the U.S. war on immigrants

first_imgAs May Day approaches, migrants and refugees in the U.S. and around the world remain in a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. President Donald Trump’s continued move to the right is exacerbating this situation.In the U.S., raids at courthouses and workplaces have increased. The National Guard has been sent to the southern border to further militarize the area. The U.S  attorney general has strengthened repressive legal measures to terrorize immigrant workers and divide the working class.Now more than ever, the struggles for migrant and refugee rights must be linked to the struggle against state police terror and to win workers’ rights.It is easy to turn away from the spectacle that is the Trump administration or to laugh Trump off as no more than a no-talent, orange clown in a cheap circus. But Trump is extremely dangerous. In league with an ultraright faction, he has made his administration into a militaristic, white supremacist regime.This has disastrous consequences for the workers and oppressed everywhere.  This must be fought tooth and nail.Hardline racist agendaThis month, Trump once again decreed his anti-immigrant agenda through a series of “Easter tweets,” in a nod to his white-supremacist “Christian nation” base. (CNN, April 5)He called for new laws to make it even harder for immigrants to obtain refugee status. He acquired a whopping $1.6 billion from a willing Congress to build his racist wall on the Mexican border — and demanded more. He asked right-wing governors to send their National Guard troops to the border. He also declared he would assign U.S. military troops to patrol there, though that action requires congressional approval by law.To fan the flames against immigrants, Trump again stated that immigration policies “have weakened the country” and “led to public safety risks.” (Washington Post, April 3) But that racist rhetoric is really a smokescreen to confuse white workers about where the real assault on their wages, health and education is coming from.For instance, the total estimated cost for Trump’s white-supremacist wall would be about $25 billion — money that could and should be earmarked instead for health care, teachers’ salaries, and other needs of working and oppressed people.The truth is that migration into the U.S. is at some of the lowest levels in years. The anti-immigrant climate that has grown since 2006 means fewer and fewer Mexican workers are coming into the U.S. while more are leaving to go back home.In early April, Trump verbally targeted a caravan of migrants who were travelling from Central America through Mexico, aiming to reach the Tijuana border. Covered on Fox News with fear mongering rhetoric, the caravan was portrayed as a horde of dangerous criminals “snaking” and sneaking their way into the U.S.Many such righteous caravans have made their way through Mexico for decades, as migrant rights advocates built support for the millions of displaced workers in the region. Every year, caravans travel throughout Mexico. They are not just for Central Americans but also for families in Mexico who have lost touch with their emigrating children or other relatives and are trying to find out what happened to them.These families do not know if their loved ones made it into the U.S. or are in detention. Perhaps they lost their lives riding “La Bestia” (The Beast), the freight train that migrants jump on to make their way north, and where hundreds fall to their deaths or lose limbs in the attempt.Trump specifically demonized a caravan organized by Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders). Highlighting the concerns of Central Americans — many from Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador — the caravan began with more than 1,000 people. The logistics of arranging transportation, food and accommodations on that scale shows the courage and determination of the movement for migrants in Mexico.Growing U.S. militarizationWhy are so many caravaning north? Not to do ill, as racists rant, but because U.S. militarism and imperialism have destabilized their homelands, destroyed their homes and taken away their livelihood. For example, Honduras has become the scene of widespread instability and repression since the 2009 coup, when the progressive regime of President Mel Zelaya was overturned. That illegal coup had U.S. fingerprints all over it, particularly those of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.For Trump and his ilk to deny the racism they aim at these migrants is calculated hypocrisy. To deny political asylum to the hundreds of refugees forced to flee their region is not only wrong — it is a death sentence.U.S. imperialism has militarized the beleaguered countries of Mexico and Central America, and now Trump aims to further militarize the U.S. border. Not the northern border with Canada, of course, but the U.S. border with Mexico.In the wake of Trump’s call for troops at the border, conservative governors from Arizona and Texas deployed their National Guard units (Newsweek, April 7), although still at numbers lower than called out under both Republican President George W. Bush and Democrat President Barack Obama. Arizona deployed 150 members and Texas promised 250. The total from all border states is predicted to reach 4,000 eventually.California Gov. Jerry Brown announced April 11 that he would send troops to the border. This is alarming, as the migrant rights movement has been very strong in California. That a so-called liberal governor felt the pressure to go along with reactionary governors shows the Trump anti-immigrant hype is gaining momentum. Brown’s announcement is also an example of how the Democrats continue to sell out immigrants and their advocates.Workplace raids increasingTrump’s summoning of the soldiers is meant to send a chill through migrants and activists alike. This follows other policies to terrorize the migrant and refugee community. On April 5, Trump issued a directive that U.S. immigration enforcement agencies cease any “catch and release” practices. In this degradingly nicknamed procedure, undocumented immigrants who had been arrested at the border were released while their cases were processed.In addition, the Department of Justice, run by archracist Attorney General Jeff Sessions, will now set quotas for immigration judges in an effort to speed up deportations. According to National Public Radio, “to get a satisfactory rating on their performance evaluations, judges will be required to clear at least 700 cases a year and to have fewer than 15 percent of their decisions overturned on appeal.”Immigration lawyers criticized the plan. “Decisions in immigration court have life-or-death consequences and cannot be managed like an assembly line,” said Jeremy McKinney, secretary of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. (NPR, April 3)Meanwhile, in what may be the biggest workplace raid under Trump’s assault, 97 people were taken into custody and processed for deportation or detention on April 7, following an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid at a Tennessee meat-processing plant.This follows synchronized ICE raids at over 100 7-Eleven stores in early January.  On one day alone, ICE agents stormed into 100 stores searching for undocumented workers. (Newsweek, Jan. 10)The ICE acting executive associate director boasted at the time that they were just getting started: “It’s not going to be limited to large companies or any particular industry, big, medium and small. … This is what we’re gearing up for this year, and what you’re going to see more and more of.”Nowhere to goImmigrants and refugees in the U.S. are living under a state of siege right now. Whether out shopping or going to religious services, whether in school, at court or at work, while driving or walking anywhere, migrants and their families are living in sheer terror. The risk of post-traumatic stress is real, especially among children of migrant families, with long-standing consequences.Migrants are forced to leave their homelands and migrate into the U.S. because of intolerable conditions, resulting directly from U.S. imperialist militarism. Only by shutting down this country’s predatory, racist system once and for all will this war on migrants end.May Day 2018 must once again be dedicated to the struggle of migrants and refugees — whether they come from Honduras or Haiti, Syria or Somalia.There are no borders in the workers’ struggle!Teresa Gutierrez is a longtime immigrant rights activist.Photos: Massive nationwide rallies in September 2017 defended immigrants, here in Los Angeles and Houston.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Court urged to disregard prosecutor’s request for death penalty for four journalists

first_imgNews Follow the news on Ethiopia News News May 18, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders appealed today to the federal high court to show clemency towards 38 government opponents, including four journalists, for whom prosecutor Abraha Tetemke requested the death penalty on 9 July. The court is to pass sentence on 16 July.“By demanding the death penalty for members of the Coalition for Unity and Democracy (CUD), the prosecutor has confirmed to the international community that Prime Minister Meles Zenawi’s government is trying to stifle all political opposition. The requested sentence is outrageous. The high court must disregard it, and show that Ethiopia is capable of respecting free expression.”The defendants include Abay editor Mesfin Tesfaye, Ethiop editor Andualem Ayele, Asqual editor Wonakseged Zeleke and Dawit Fassil, the deputy editor of the now defunct weekly Satenaw, who was released on bail in April and then re-arrested.Various unofficial sources have reported that negotiations were under way between the government and opposition leaders that could influence the outcome of the trial.The high court decided that the defendants’ refusal to defend themselves in court was an admission of guilt and on 11 June found them guilty of “trying to overthrow constitutional rule.” Mesfin and Andualem initially faced the death penalty or life imprisonment for “inciting revolt” and “conspiracy to overthrow constitutional rule” while Wonakseged faced a 10-year prison sentence on the same charges and Dawit faced three years in prison for publishing inaccurate information.The four journalists were arrested in the course of roundups carried out by the government in November 2005 in order to crack down on opposition protests against alleged fraud in the legislative elections that had just taken place.

Required fields are marked * Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 55 new deaths and 851 new cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Forty-one people who died were over the age of 65 years old and 12 people who died were between the ages of 41 to 65 years old. Thirty-eight people had underlying health conditions including 27 people over the age of 65 years old and 11 people between the ages of 41 to 65 years old. One death was reported by the City of Long Beach and one death by the City of Pasadena.To date, Public Health has identified 28,644 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of LA County, and a total of 1,367 deaths. Ninety-two percent of people who died had underlying health conditions. Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 1,260 people (99 percent of the cases); 39% of deaths occurred among Latinx residents, 28% among White residents, 19% among Asian residents, 12% among African American residents, 1% among Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents and 1% among residents identifying with other races. African Americans, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and people living in communities with high levels of poverty continue to have the highest rate of death per 100,000 people for COVID-19 when compared to other groups. Upon further investigation, 22 cases and one death reported earlier were not LA County residents. As of today, 5,142 people who tested positive for COVID-19 (19% of positive cases) have been hospitalized at some point during their illness. Testing capacity continues to increase in LA County, with testing results available for nearly 192,000 individuals and 13% of people testing positive.“Our hearts are with all of you who have lost loved ones to COVID-19. We are so sorry for your loss, and hope you find healing and peace at this very difficult time,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “Today we are sharing the County’s Roadmap to Recovery to ensure that as we reopen our businesses we do so in a way that is safe for employees and customers, continues to slow the spread of the virus, and does not result in increases in our death rate from COVID-19. I am so grateful to all of you have worked together to get us to a place where a slow, safe reopening is possible.”As recovery planning continues, Public Health is issuing a five-stage roadmap to recovery that describes a phased approach to relaxing select directives of the Safer at Home Order and a reopening process for certain business sectors. LA County is currently in stage one of the Safer at Home recovery stage. However, the County anticipates beginning stage two as soon as Friday, May 8 by allowing florists and some retailers to offer curbside pickup. Car dealerships, golf courses and trails can also open with appropriate safeguards in place. Physical distancing and infection control protocols must be adhered to and cloth facing coverings must be worn. Later next week additional restrictions will be lifted to include many retailers, manufacturers, and other recreational facilities. The next three stages include the potential opening in phases of higher-risk businesses like movie theaters, schools, colleges and universities, followed by conventions and spectator events, to finally normal operations. Each sector will have safe reopening protocols that must be adhered to.Until final stage five is reached, Health Officer Orders and directives will still continue to ensure that we slow the spread of COVID-19 to prevent an overwhelming surge of COVID-19 cases at healthcare facilities. Physical distancing, wearing cloth face coverings, frequent hand washing, self-isolation and self-quarantine will continue to be very important throughout the foreseeable future. People who have underlying health conditions will still be at much greater risk for serious illness from COVID-19, so it will continue to be very important for the County’s vulnerable residents to stay at home as much as possible, to have groceries and medicine delivered, and to know to call their providers immediately if they have even mild symptoms.An interactive dashboard is available that provides an overview on COVID-19 testing, cases and deaths along with maps and graphs showing testing, cases and death data by community poverty level, age, sex and race/ethnicity.

Hybrid lettings agency warned after landlord complaint

Monthly flowers? Weekly cleaner? We have a range of subscription services available, to create the ultimate home experience all from one app”.The complainant told the ASA that they were under the impression that there was ‘no such workable app’ and claimed that the website post was therefore misleading.In reply, Howsy told the ASA that they do have an app but that  it is currently a ‘beta’ app only used by a selection of customers.The lettings agency also said the complainant was incorrectly told by its customer service team that there was no app and instead should have been asked if they wanted to join the beta scheme.Also, the agency said it does have subscription services, but due to Covid lockdown restrictions varying these are subject to change.Howsy has agreed to make changes to make it clear it is a beta app (see above), that it is only used by a select group of people at the moment but that it is open to anyone who asks. Their website also makes it clear that while subscription services exist, they are subject to change.“On that basis, we agreed to close the case informally,” an ASA spokesperson says.Read  more about Howsy. Howsy advertising standards authority ASA December 2, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
