Share tips for 2021 – what I look for

first_img Christopher Ruane | Friday, 8th January, 2021 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. See all posts by Christopher Ruane 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. Enter Your Email Address As 2021 gets well underway, many investors are hunting around to discover the best share tips for their ISAs. I am doing a lot of that myself, so understand the feeling well. It’s a good time of year to share some general principles I follow when looking at share tips.The source of information matters to meWhen it comes to investment, information can be very powerful. Unlike years ago when retail investors were mostly limited to the press and hard copy annual reports, the Internet has opened up all sorts of informational options for us. An example is the regulatory news service filings (or RNS) that listed companies make to the stock market. Most companies carry these on the investor section of their websites. They offer a wealth of information, from trading updates to director share dealings. They can be well worth a look when assessing share tips for 2021.5G 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…When looking at a share tip, I always try to assess the motivation of the tipster. For example, do they have some skin in the game? Might they have an agenda different to mine? What is their track record like? In itself, I don’t find any such consideration conclusive. But they can be helpful in forming a viewpoint on why a share tip suggests a certain action, right now. For example, I find a tip more credible when I know what the tipster’s own position is in the shares in question.The market is a weighing machineLegendary investor Warren Buffett says that in the short-term the stock market is a voting machine, in the long-term it is a weighing machine. In other words, quality will out.I find it useful to remember Buffett’s adage when it comes to acting on seemingly hot tips. For example, the weekend papers may tip an exciting growth story. But by the time one gets to see the share’s price on Monday, it has already moved sharply upwards. I like a hot tip as much as the next investor. If a company is world-class with solid prospects for years to come, rushing in shouldn’t be necessary in my view. Not diving in immediately may indeed reduce my return. But if the shares rise enough over the long term, I should still make an agreeable profit. I notice that long-term thinking in Motley Fool’s share tips for 2021.How I’m reacting to share tips for 2021That is why I am circumspect about share tips for 2021 that demand immediate action before an opportunity is gone. That is true sometimes for legitimate reasons. But at other times it is just sales bluster which can lead investors to expensive mistakes. The first pink sheets trade shown in the film The Wolf of Wall Street captures this sort of situation. A boiler room stock operation uses high pressure ‘hot tip’ tactics to persuade an investor that the tip is so urgent, he needs to decide his course of action immediately.Acting on a tip sooner versus later may make some difference in terms of the total return one can get. But as a long-term investor looking for companies to buy and hold for years, that shouldn’t make a big difference to my investment returns. Meanwhile, taking time to do my research, find out more information about share tips for 2021 and carefully weigh up my options will likely save me from costly mistakes.

Alafoti Faosiliva’s huge hit, charge, and try against Fiji in London

first_imgFriday May 18, 2012 Alafoti Faosiliva’s huge hit, charge, and try against Fiji in London Sevens star Alafoti Faosiliva has been included in the Samoan training squad for the upcoming Pacific Nations Cup, as well as their once off game against Scotland. In the London Sevens final the big man made a huge tackle, and later scored a powerful try. If you’ve watched any of the IRB Sevens World Series in the last year or so the name, and thighs, of Faosiliva should be quite familiar to you. He’s been one of Samoa’s top try scorers on the circuit, and is the proverbial human wrecking ball.Built like a tank and with the speed of a back, you don’t want to get in his way.Unfortunately for some of the Fijians in London, they did, and they were smashed. Fiji won the final but two moments stood out from Faosiliva, namely a huge tackle in the second half, and later the try which gave Nigel Starmer Smith a new catchphrase in ‘Boom. Crash. Try’.Faosiliva has been selected in the Samoan fifteens squad as a loose forward, so will be one to watch in the Pacific Nations Cup, which kicks off on 5 June when Samoa play Tonga.There were a few controversial non-selections in the squad, with Rugby World Cup 2011 captain, and Chiefs hooker, Mahonri Schwalger being overlooked, as well as outspoken midfielder, Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu. Schwalger openly criticised the behaviour of the Samoan management at the World Cup, and Fuimaono-Sapolu is viewed as unmanagable by new coach Stephen Betham.Also worth watching, Seven of the Best tries from the London SevensManu Samoa training squad:James Sooialo, Lolo Lui Moataa, David Lemi, Ken Pisi, Paul Perez, Paul Williams, Fautua Otto, Isaia Tuifua, Faatoina Autagavaia, George Pisi, Male Sau, Ki Anufe, Tusi Pisi, Patrick Faapale, Kahn Fotualii, Jeremy Su’a, Nalu Tuigamala, Ofisa Treviranus, Chris Lowrey, Richard Muagututia, Maurie Faasavalu, Afa Aiono, Taiasina Tuifua, Alafoti Faosiliva, Kane Thompson , Maselino Paulino, Joe Tekori, Census Johnston, Logovii Mulipola, Sakaria Taulafo, James Johnston, Tuu Paulo, Ole Avei, Steve Fuala, Patrick Leafa.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

UN General Assembly asked to send strong signal to Human Rights Council

first_imgReporters Without Borders appealed for vigilance by United Nations member states as the UN General Assembly was poised today to endorse a reform package adopted by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council. News November 5, 2007 – Updated on January 25, 2016 UN General Assembly asked to send strong signal to Human Rights Council RSF_en Help by sharing this information Organisation Reporters Without Borders appealed for vigilance by United Nations member states as the UN General Assembly was poised today to endorse a reform package adopted by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council.“Among decisions adopted by the Human Rights Council is one, taken in June, to not renew the mandates of the special rapporteurs on Cuba and Belarus, two of the world’s worst press freedom predators,” the organisation said. “Other countries such as Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo have since then also requested the termination of the mandates of the special rapporteurs on the human rights situation in their countries.“There is concern that these special rapporteurs – whose work is essential – are going to be phased out. We call on the General Assembly not to endorse this development and to send a strong signal to the Human Rights Council.“This council, which was created nearly a year and a half ago, has yet to prove its effectiveness. The wheeling and dealing between member states that discredited the former Human Rights Commission has not gone away. And the end of the mandates of certain special rapporteurs is disturbing. Today, it is the General Assembly’s duty to ask the council for explanations and to adopt all necessary measures so that the council can finally do what it is supposed to do – combat human rights violations throughout the world.”It was only at the very last moment before the expiry of the midnight 18 June deadline set by the UN general assembly that Luis Alfonso de Alba, Mexico’s representative and the council’s outgoing president, went before the council and forced through his draft resolution on working procedures. De Alba portrayed his proposal as a compromise although most of the delegates were unaware of its content. Canada’s representative challenged this solution and demanded a debate, but his request was rejected by 46 votes to one (his own).Reporters Without Borders is particularly shocked by the Human Rights Council’s decision to terminate the mandates of the Cuba and Belarus rapporteurs. This setback is the result of a deliberate policy on the part of these countries’ dictatorships to obstruct the rapporteurs.Press freedom in CubaThree journalists have been convicted of “pre-criminal social dangerousness” since Raúl Castro took over as acting president in 26 July 2006 after his brother, Fidel, fell ill. One is Oscar Sánchez Madan, the Cubanet website’s correspondent in Matanzas province, who was sentenced to four years in prison in a secret trial held immediately after his arrest. His family was unable to attend and he was not represented by a lawyer. The other two, who also received prison sentences, are Raymundo Perdigón Brito, one of the founders of the independent Yayabo Press agency, and Ramón Velázquez Toranso of the Libertad news agency. Harassment of dissidents currently takes the form of intimidation by the State Security (the political police), sudden summonses for questioning at police stations, and political brutality. Access to Internet cafés is also strictly regulated.According to the (illegal but tolerated) Cuban Commission for Human Rights and National Reconciliation, Cuba’s prisons are currently holding 246 prisoners of conscience, including 24 dissident journalists. They continue to be mistreated by their guards and to be held in cells that are unfit for habitation, and their health has suffered as a result.Press freedom in BelarusBelarus was placed 151st out of 169 countries in the 2007 world press freedom index. This was Europe’s worst ranking. Belarus is also one of Europe’s last Stalinist-style dictatorships. The police recently arrested journalists prevently, before an opposition demonstration. The state’s monopoly of newspaper distribution has resulted in the disappearance of independent publications from almost all news stands. The government’s preferred tool for silencing dissident publications is administrative harassment – seizure of issues, refusal to register a newspaper’s address (making it illegal to continue publishing), non-renewal of rental contracts for premises, and so on. The government recently turned its attention to the Internet where, in its view, “anarchy reigns.” A commission of lawyers has been created to propose regulations that would restore online order. President Lukashenko has referred to China as a model for managing the Internet. last_img read more

TV reporter cleared of inciting teenager in body piercing “suspension”

first_imgNews June 4, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF_en to go further Receive email alerts FranceEurope – Central Asia News Reporters Without Borders welcome’s today’s decision by a court in the southern city of Toulouse to acquit TV reporter Isabelle Cottenceau of inciting a teenage youth to allow himself to be suspended from body piercings in his back.In March, prosecutors requested a suspended six-month prison sentence and fine of at least 3,000 euros for Cottenceau on a criminal charge of “complicity in an act of violence” for filming the preparations for the so-called “suspension,” as the practice is called in the body-piercing subculture.“We are relieved by Cottenceau’s acquittal, which was a sensible decision,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But one should not forget that she should never have been brought to trial for doing her job as a reporter. France must be more vigilant in its defence of press freedom.”Cottenceau filmed the youth for a 28-minute documentary entitled “Tattoos and piercings – they risks their skins” that was broadcast by the M6 TV channel in its “Forbidden Zone” programme series on 8 October 2006.The decision to prosecute Cottenceau raises many questions. The prosecutors accused her of encouraging the youth although the actual “suspension” was not shown in the documentary, although she asked his mother why she was giving her permission and although she repeatedly insisted during the programme on the health risks involved in piercings and tattoos.A handwritten document in which the mother gave her permission was not included in the case file despite repeated requests by the defence. The document’s date proved that the youth had already decided to do the “suspension” before being contacted by Cottenceau. The mother was not questioned on this matter during the hearing either.The decision to prosecute sets a dangerous precedent for broadcast journalists who want to cover activities that could be illegal. According to the logic of the Toulouse prosecutors, any journalists covering drugs, prostitution or clandestine immigration are liable to be treated as criminals themselves.Journalists have a duty to report what they discover to the public. In France, their activities are regulated by legislation, above all by an 1881 press law. Journalists cannot be accused of responsibility for – or complicity in – the illegal activities that they witness in the course of their reporting.

The association was established in 2009 and incorporated soul-mates in the area of preservation, research, and popularization of Russia’s maritime heritage. Representatives of 44 marine-related organizations from 5 regions discussed issues of maritime heritage preservation.The association was founded on March 1, 2009 in St. Petersburg on board museum icebreaker Krasin and is aimed at preservation of Russian maritime heritage for education of young generation. The conference started with opening speech of Svetlana Sivkova, charwoman of the association and director of the World Ocean Museum. She told about results of the three-year long work. Issues of maritime heritage preservation were discussed at the first scientific conference held in 2010. Term “Maritime Heritage” was included into the Russian Federation Marine Activity Development Strategy 2020.Preservation of maritime history and education of young generation were among subjects discussed at top level, so the great work is in prospect. There are some problems keeping down development of the association and other organizations dealing with publicity of maritime heritage and information activities. One of the most topical problems is imperfection of maritime laws. Director of Central Naval Museum Andrei Lyalin and Executive Secretary of St. Petersburg Marine Council Tatiana Chekalova also attended the conference. After speech of the association’s chairwoman, participants discussed registration of legal entity. As of today, Russian Maritime Heritage Association is a public organization which exists at the expense of membership dues. Presentation of the first issue of The Maritime Heritage magazine was held as well.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , April 04, 2012; Image: saint-petersburg View post tag: Museum View post tag: Heritagelast_img read more
