Valued at £2.9bn, Abcam (LSE:ABC) is currently the second-largest AIM company by market cap. It specialises in life sciences with a focus on antibodies, assays, proteins, and various diagnostic solutions. Between October 2014 and August 2018, the Abcam share price steadily rose 280%. Since then, it has repeatedly plunged and climbed in a volatile fashion. In recent weeks, interest in the stock has been reignited. This has caused the Abcam share price to rise 23% in its recovery from the march market crash.Acquisitions and partnershipsAt the end of last year, it acquired Expedeon’s proteomics and immunology business and more recently announced the acquisition of Marker Gene Technologies. Both these acquisitions complement Abcam’s business and should help increase its capabilities.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…This week it was announced that Abcam will be partnering with Cancer Research UK to generate new cancer-fighting therapies. Abcam will develop and supply unique antibodies exclusively to CRU’s funded researchers. The intention is to accelerate cancer research using custom protein-based reagents to enhance the understanding of cancer biology and potentially discover novel therapies. This is a prestigious partnership to have, but just last month, Cancer Research said £150m could be cut from its annual research funding as the pandemic decimates its income.Is the Abcam share price sustainable?Abcam operates an interesting business with many facets, but its growth has partly been fuelled by acquisitions. This, along with renewed enthusiasm for the future of healthcare, has led to much speculation around the future of this stock. I think this has led to its ridiculously high price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 61, which makes plain the Abcam share price is expensive.It has been somewhat affected by the coronavirus crisis and temporarily closed several labs. It now says full-year revenues will be between £14m to £16m lower than expected. Its margins were being squeezed earlier in the year and the downturn could cause further pressure. Abcam offers a dividend yield of 0.9% but this is at risk of a cut if its revenues continue to fall. With coronavirus cases still rising, I imagine uncertainty will continue for some time. As I think this is an overpriced stock, I will not be rushing to buy.Fighting a losing battleIndivior (LSE: INDV) is a £634m drug company specialising in the development of Suboxone Film, an opioid addiction treatment. Indivior has a P/E of 6 and earnings per share are 14. It does not offer a dividend. Unfortunately, it is wrangled in a legal dispute in which its former CEO recently pleaded guilty to mismarketing the product in the US. Legal proceedings in relation to allegations of fraud surrounding the Suboxone product continue. It recently estimated this may cost the group $621m to settle.It has been around for over 25 years and has considerable expertise in fighting the opioid crisis, which is far from being eradicated. Prior to 2014, Indivior was a subsidiary of Reckitt Benckiser Group. They are now entirely separate.Two years ago, the Indivior share price was peaking over £4.90 a share. It then fell to a low of 30p in April 2019 and is now languishing at around 85p a share. Despite fighting a rising health crisis in opioid addiction, it does not look like Indivior will be rolling in profits soon. I would steer clear of both these life science stocks.

Stock market recovery: is it too late to make a passive income from cheap shares?

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The recent stock market recovery could make it more difficult to make a large passive income from cheap shares. After all, higher stock prices mean lower yields. Especially when a limited number of companies have increased their dividend payouts in today’s challenging economic circumstances.However, some sectors have underperformed the wider index. Meanwhile, others continue to trade at low levels compared to their historic averages. As such, it’s still possible to identify high-quality cheap shares that can produce a generous, and growing, passive income.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…Buying cheap shares after the stock market recoveryDespite the recent stock market recovery, the FTSE 100 continues to trade below its all-time high. In fact, it’s around 15% down on its record high. This suggests a number of companies could still be classed as cheap UK shares. Certainly since they may have failed to fully bounce back from the 2020 stock market crash.Furthermore, some sectors have significantly underperformed the wider stock market. Examples include, but are not limited to, banking, energy, travel & leisure. You can also add some retailers who’ve negatively impacted by store closures during lockdown. Their share prices may fully reflect the uncertainty faced over the short run. As such, they could offer good value for money. As well as a generous passive income over the long run.Making a passive income in an uncertain economic periodCheap shares continue to offer high yields after the stock market recovery in some cases. So making a passive income is more than just focusing on today’s shareholder payouts. Consideration must be made to the affordability of dividends over the long run. That’s because some companies may struggle to deliver rising profitability for a prolonged period of time following the current economic crisis.As such, checking the quality of cheap shares could be a sound move. For example, assessing their balance sheet strength, the adaptability of their business models and their competitive advantages could be a sound means of analysing the reliability of their dividend payouts. Cheap shares that lack such characteristics may be worth avoiding. Even if they offer high yields and large discounts compared to their sector peers.Building a dividend portfolioAs well as analysing cheap shares to check the affordability of their passive incomes, building a diverse portfolio of companies could be a shrewd move at the present time. After all, the recent stock market recovery is not guaranteed to continue. It could turn into a stock market crash at any time. The stock market could experience further ups-and-downs that negatively impact on an investor’s portfolio.Although diversification doesn’t reduce risk to zero, it can lower an investor’s dependency on a small number of shares for their passive income. This may result in a more reliable and resilient income stream over the long run. 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.

A big year starts here – GB Wheelchair Rugby primed for Quad Nations

first_imgTickets for the Quad Nations, on 1-3 March, are not expensive. So if you want to get along this weekend, click here for tickets.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Fall guy: Jim Roberts, part of this week’s GB squad, takes a tumble in the 2016 Paralympics (OIS/IOC/AFP) GB Wheelchair Rugby go into this weekend’s Quad Nations in Leicester strengthened by two returning Paralympians, as their coach Paul Shaw tells Rugby World A big year starts here – GB Wheelchair Rugby primed for Quad NationsThis weekend sees the first of four major tournaments for Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby in 2019 – the King Power Quad Nations. Staged at Leicester’s Morningside Arena, the tournament brings together four of the world’s best teams – GB, Canada, France and world champions Japan – in an action-packed three-day scrap.GB open the tournament against Canada at 10.30am on Friday 1 March and the gold-medal match starts at 4pm on Sunday.“For people who haven’t seen the sport before, it will be a real eye-opener to see what Paralympic sport is all about,” says GB coach Paul Shaw.“We’ve got four teams who play very good, hard, intense rugby. It’s always exciting for any nation to host the world champions and we’ve got a very competitive GB team; we really expect to do well this weekend. We’ve beaten Japan in the last two years, and they’ve beaten us, so it’s about who turns up the day.“And I really enjoy the fact we get such great support from our friends and family within the rugby world. They come in good numbers to watch this competition.”Feel the Power: GB team members with Leicester City players at the tournament launch (Osborne&Hollis)The Quad Nations tournament was launched last year to provide a high-quality home-based competition for GB Wheelchair Rugby athletes. USA took gold a year ago, beating Australia 56-55 in the final, and while those nations occupy the top two places in the world rankings, there are plenty of sides chasing their tail.“The gap is getting closer, as last year’s World Championship in Sydney showed,” says Shaw, a three-time Paralympian. “The final between Japan and Australia was a one-point game, the semi-final between Australia and GB was a two-point game. France defeated Canada, who are No 4 in the world. With the top five teams, it’s one or two goals (difference) either way.”Down to the wire: the USA won last year’s inaugural Quad Nations event in Leicester (Osborne&Hollis)Shaw took over straight after London 2012 and has been steadily building depth. The GB squad for this weekend includes three survivors from those London Games in Jonathan Coggan, Aaron Phipps and Kylie Grimes – the latter two having returned to the fray in the past 12 or so months.“Aaron and Kylie both pursued other directions after London. Aaron went off and had a family, got his career underway, his public speaking. Kylie went on to do athletics and was at Rio in 2016. She competed in the Club throwing event (finishing fourth).“We approached Aaron to see if he would be interested in coming back. He’s decided to come back on board and has really excelled.“As for Kylie, we were looking at where we could get some extra marginal gains in our game and she opens up some new line-ups for us because of her (low) classification.”Phipps was 15 when he contracted meningitis and blood poisoning, and he lost his legs and most of his fingers due to septicaemia. In 2016 he summited Mount Kilimanjaro, spending the last four days of the ascent on his hands and knees because his off-road wheelchair could no longer cope with the rough terrain.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Star quality: GB’s Aaron Phipps, a 3.5 classification player, in action against USA at London 2012 (Getty)Grimes was 18 when she hit her head on the bottom of a swimming pool during a party in 2006. She was left paralysed from the chest down but like Phipps has gone on to play international sport and serve as an inspiration to many.Rarity value: Kylie Grimes is one of only two women competing in the Quad Nations (Jude Edginton)Grimes and Japan’s Kae Kurahashi are the only women involved in this weekend’s Quad Nations, but Saturday (6.15pm) sees an all-women demonstration match involving players from across the British leagues.“What we’ve done as a national game is encourage women to play the game,” says Shaw. “I think women really want to participate in the sport and the number of female players in the three divisions has definitely gone up.“And also from what I’ve seen in the youth programme, there’s a lot of young females playing the game and really enjoying it. Hopefully when they’re old enough they can come up into the senior ranks.”After the Quad Nations, GB compete in another four-team event in America in May, set to also feature USA, Japan and Australia.In August, GB defend the European Championship title they won two years ago in Germany. This time Denmark host the event and the top two qualify for next year’s Paralympics in Tokyo, so it’s the principal focus of GB this year.Then, in the wake of the inaugural Rugby Challenge tournament held in London during the 2015 World Cup, Japan will host a similar event for the world’s top eight teams during the 2019 World Cup. “Providing we get the result we want from the European Championship, it will be good preparation for us in Tokyo the following year,” adds Shaw.Rio grand: Japan in action during the 2016 Paralympics semi-final against Australia (Getty Images)A delegation from Japan will be in attendance this weekend as the Mayor of Kitakyushu and other dignitaries visit Leicester. The host city for the Wales team during this year’s World Cup, Kitakyushu has agreed to host the GB Wheelchair Rugby squad for the next two years.As part of this initiative, the city will provide support for the GB team during training camps ahead of the World Wheelchair Rugby Challenge, the Paralympic Test Event and the 2020 Paralympics. GBWR will support the city with civic engagements in schools and businesses, and will open their doors for citizens of the city to watch GB training sessions.The Mayor of Kitakyushu will enjoy a tour of Leicester before travelling to the Morningside Arena to watch the Japan v France Quad Nations match on Friday.The trophy for the Quad Nations champions has been named after Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the former Leicester City chairman who died in a helicopter crash last October. The Vichai Trophy will be awarded annually to each winner as a long-lasting tribute to the late chairman of King Power.last_img read more

Drop All Charges Against Moroccan Journalist Ali Anouzla – Let Him Go Free, Once and For All

first_imgNews Organisation to go further June 8, 2021 Find out more January 21, 2016 – Updated on March 8, 2016 Drop All Charges Against Moroccan Journalist Ali Anouzla – Let Him Go Free, Once and For All Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara News Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Human rights and freedom of expression groups are calling on the Moroccan authorities to drop all charges against Ali Anouzla and to end their judicial pursuit of him and his news publication Over two years on from his initial arrest, detention and subsequent release, independent journalist and editor-in-chief of the Arabic edition of news website Lakome2 (and its blocked predecessor Lakome) Ali Anouzla has begun another year facing the same accusations that the Moroccan authorities have relentlessly pursued against him since September 2013.The original terrorism-related charges against Anouzla reportedly still stand – as does the very real risk of him spending anywhere between 10 and 30 years in jail.We, the undersigned organisations, are dismayed by the potentialof once again seeing Ali Anouzla before a court of law defending himself against the same baseless and unsubstantiated claims that the Moroccan authorities tried to charge him with over two years ago. We repeat loud and clear that these charges remain unfounded under international law, and amount to a violation of his freedom of expression and his right to inform the public.Anouzla was arrested on 17 September 2013 for publishing an article on the original Lakome website that contained a link to an El País article about a video posted by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). On 24 September 2013, he was indicted by the investigating judge at the Rabat Court of Appeals for allegedly providing “material assistance” to a terrorist group, “defending terrorism” and “inciting the execution of terrorist acts” (on the basis of the anti-terrorist law 03-03 of 28 May 2003).He spent five weeks in “preventative detention” before being released on bail on 25 October 2013.On 17 October 2013, while still in jail, both the Arabic and French-language versions of Lakome were blocked. After Anouzla’s conditional release, repeated requests to the National Agency for Telecommunications Regulation (ANRT) and the prosecutor’s office to unblock the news sites were met with no reply. To this day, the sites remain inaccessible from inside Morocco.Throughout 2014 and 2015, Anouzla faced the prospect of appearing before various investigating judges accused of the same terrorism-related charges that continue to dog him, only to repeatedly have his hearings postponed. As a result his case, and the threat of losing his liberty, have been deliberately prolonged.As one of the most respected Arab journalists in the region, Ali Anouzla is known for his commitment to promoting independent newspapers as well as his steadfast dedication to press freedom, including a bold editorial stance that does not hesitate to cross red lines and criticise the authorities, including King Mohammed VI.His publications are renowned for their unequivocally pro-democracy editorial line that translates into a critical yet fair treatment of the real power holders in Morocco. This has allowed Lakome, and now Lakome2, to attract a relatively large audience as well as high profile, quality contributors.Many human rights observers inside Morocco, as well as internationally, believe Anouzla’s on-going harassment by the judicial authorities is retaliation for Lakome’s revelation of the ‘Daniel scandal’, in which the Moroccan King was found to have pardoned, as a gesture of friendship between him and his Spanish counterpart, King Juan Carlos, a Spanish serial child rapist sentenced to 30 years in prison – of which he spent only a year and a half behind bars.The scandal led to a wave of demonstrations against the Moroccan monarch in early August 2013, and spurred unprecedented solidarity among local, regional and international human rights groups.After the launch of Lakome2 in August 2015, Anouzla was summoned once again to appear before an investigative judge on 26 November to answer questions related to the same politically motivated case from 2013.We urge the Moroccan authorities to once and for all dismiss the charges against Ali Anouzla and to allow him the freedom to practice independent journalism unhindered. This relentless pursuit of a respected journalist on clearly unfounded charges should be an embarrassment to Morocco; instead, the authorities appear determined to punish him for his willingness to question authority – the very basis of what it is to be a journalist. Ali Anouzla is no terrorist, and the Moroccan authorities should be ashamed by these persistent attempts to denigrate both him and the profession of journalism in such a way. Let Ali Anouzla go free; let critical, independent journalism in Morocco thrive.Reporters Without Borders (RSF)Vigilance for Democracy and the Civic StateMaharat Foundation-LebanonThe Arabic Network for Human Rights Information “ANHRI”The Tunisian Forum for Economic and Social RightsThe Tunis Center for Press FreedomThe Committee for the Respect of Human Rights and Liberties in TunisiaJournaliste en dangerPEN InternationalInternational Press Institute (IPI)World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA)Cartoonists rights network internationalTunisian Association of Democratic Women (ATFD)Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) April 15, 2021 Find out more RSF_en RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance News April 28, 2021 Find out more NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa last_img read more

Mortgage Delinquency: “Signs of Emerging Stress in Some States”

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post Mortgage Delinquency: “Signs of Emerging Stress in Some States” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago CoreLogic found that as of June 2019, the foreclosure inventory rate fell 0.1 percentage points from June 2018 to 0.4%—tied with the past seven months as the lowest for any month since January 1999.Overall, the national share of mortgages that were in some stage of delinquency was 4% in June 2019—a 0.3 percentage point decline, compared to last year’s 4.3%. The share of mortgages that are delinquent more than 90 days fell from 1.2% to 0.9%, and the percentage of mortgages that were more than 120 days delinquent dropped to 1% from 1.4% in June 2018. “A strong economy and eight-plus years of home price growth have made mortgage foreclosure an infrequent event,” said Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic. “This backdrop will help the mortgage market limit delinquencies in most of the country whenever a downturn should start.”1Mortgages delinquent between 30 and 59 days rose marginally from 2% last year to 2.1% in 2019. Of the metros studied, the New York-Newark-New Jersey metro had the highest serious delinquency rate of 2.6%. The metro also had the highest overall foreclosure rate at 1.3%.The next highest was Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach, Florida, at 2%. Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, Colorado, and San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, California, had the lowest serious delinquency rate at 0.4%. According to PropertyShark, Manhattan foreclosure cases were up 118% year-over-year during Q3 2019, while Staten Island Island cases increased by 183%.

It is informed, through a Press Release dated July 6, 2020, that NHRC has sought a detailed response from the Secretary, Department of School Education and Literacy, Union Ministry of Human Resource Development, as well as the Chief Secretary of Bihar in 4 weeks. The Commission took note of the situation based on a media report pertaining particularly to Bhagalpur district in Bihar, which suggests that destitute children are not getting mid-day meals and are, therefore, having to work and fend for themselves. “Reportedly, earlier the children were able to get roti, rice, vegetables, dal, soya and eggs in the mid-day meal which has now disappeared and the children are not only starving but getting involved in petty dirty works. The people residing in these areas belong to below poverty line, who do garbage collection, begging or working for the contractors to collect waste etc. Their children, who could have some food in the schools, are now starving and suffering from malnutrition.” -states NHRC According to the media report, adds the Commission, the District Magistrate has claimed that money is being transferred to every affected child’s (or their guardian’s) account instead of the mid-day meal for the entire period during which schools have been shut. The Commission further expressed its concern over the prevailing situation in Bihar, especially in Bhagalpur, and stated that other States do not seem to be facing similar problems. Stressing on the significance of the mid-day meal scheme, the Commission observed that the same ensures protection of children’s right to food and right to education, which is recognized as a Fundamental Right under Article 21-A. “The facility of mid-day meal in the schools has definitely attracted the young children and their parents towards schools to continue their studies. The scheme has also helped children from the poor background to get education and save themselves from the malnutrition”, observed NHRC. Further emphasizing on the importance of the scheme, the Commission goes on to aver “that apparently amid lockdown across the country, the schools are not functional and the mid-day meal has been stopped due to which poor children are forced to indulge in small jobs which not only spoil their health but also push them towards petty crimes and other anti-social activities. The children in this condition will be prone to drug addiction and trafficking by the criminal elements of the society, involved in illicit activities.” Having acknowledged the Centre’s efforts to introduce schemes to eliminate starvation deaths and alleviate children’s suffering on account of malnutrition, the Commission, however, notes that the “condition of the children is pathetic.” Further, alluding to the facts mentioned in the news report as ‘alarming’, NHRC has observed that there has been a serious violation of human rights. In addition, NHRC has questioned the attitude of state governments in allowing such human rights volations. the efforts of the Centre, the Commission observed that the Government of India has no doubt, introduced many schemes to ensure right to food and to ensure that there should be no deaths due to starvation and the young children do not suffer from malnutrition but the facts mentioned in the news report are alarming. The This is a serious issue of violation of human rights. The right to life, food, dignity and equality of the children are being violated due to negligent attitude of the state authorities. “The condition of the children is pathetic.

Landlords shun federal rent relief over program requirements

first_img Tags Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Email Address* While federal requirements stipulate the money should be used to pay rent for low-income tenants, individual states have broad discretion over how the programs are implemented. Those differences can be dramatic: In Broward County, Florida, the rent relief will only make up for 60 percent of back rent if what’s unpaid exceeds a month’s rent.Some landlords, faced with keeping a non-paying tenant and accepting a discounted rent versus finding a new tenant who may be in a better position to pay, are choosing the latter. The ban on federal evictions, which expires at the end of March, does not mandate that landlords renew current leases.“If you have someone who wasn’t upholding their end of the contract…you’re asking the housing provider to sign up for essentially another year of this person being in this unit unable to pay,” Amanda Gill, government affairs director for the Florida Apartment Association, an industry trade group, told the publication.“You’re really putting them in a really difficult position, because they have ongoing obligations,” Gill said.[WSJ] — Georgia KromreiContact the author (iStock/Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)The federal government wants to give landlords and tenants $50 billion to help keep renters in their homes — but some of those property owners are turning down the funding that they’re eligible for.Some landlords have taken issue with the requirements to receive federal rent relief, including disclosing financial information, as well as limits on evicting tenants if they choose to do so, the Wall Street Journal reported.In Boston, a tenant attorney said that a fifth of his cases involve a landlord who has refused the funds. A Houston nonprofit tasked with distributing the funds said that in 5,600 cases, landlords shunned the relief. In Los Angeles, nearly half of the tenants who received rent relief had landlords who declined to participate in the program.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreThe nitty gritton federal rent reliefLandlords hail relief bill as end of cancel rentBiden’s relief package would extend evictioni ban, boost rent relieff Message* EvictionsMultifamilyRental Marketlast_img read more

A study on octopodids from the eastern Weddell Sea, Antarctica

first_imgA comprehensive study of octopodids in the Weddell Sea was conducted during cruise ANT XIII/3 of RV “Polarstern”. The study yielded eight species or incirrate octopodids, three of which were undescribed. There appeared to be no differences in octopodid species assemblage in the two sampling areas (Kapp Norvegia and south of Drescher Inlet), supporting the theory that there is a single macrobenthic assemblage on the eastern shelf of the Weddell Sea. Six of the octopodid species belonged to the genus Pareledone, illustrating the extensive radiation of this endemic genus within the Southern Ocean. The fragmented nature of suitable habitats and disturbance caused by glaciation cycles are proposed as mechanisms for this radiation. Comparative data illustrate that both the number of octopodid species present and their abundance are greater at higher latitudes than close to the Antarctic Polar Frontal Zone.last_img read more
