Enter Your Email Address I don’t need to tell you the performance of stock markets this year has been very different to last year! The FTSE 100 gained 12% in 2019, but is deep in the red in 2020. With the Covid-19 pandemic having changed the world dramatically, are my top share picks of last year still my best shares to buy now?My best shares to buyGold miners Polymetal and four-times-tipped Centamin featured prominently among my picks. They did well in 2019, and I continued to rate them as buys going into 2020. They’ve thrived in this year’s turmoil. Polymetal’s up 28% since December, and Centamin 41%.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…Despite the big price rises, their valuations remain attractive. This is because of substantial upgrades to their earnings forecasts. Polymetal’s forward P/E is 10.5 and Centamin’s 12.3. And with both stocks having prospective dividend yields of over 5%, they continue to look very buyable to me.Another theme of my best shares to buyI have a liking for ‘defensive’ stocks. And nothing pings my value antenna more than seeing a fundamentally sound defensive business in what I believe is temporary trouble. I tipped four stocks on this theme last year.Domino’s Pizza and medical devices firm ConvaTec made very strong gains by the end of the year, and I rated them as holds by December. BAE Systems and twice-tipped tobacco group Imperial Brands put in less impressive performances. Patience is often required in these situations, and I continued to rate them as buys going into 2020.Domino’s is up 22% since December, and ConvaTec up 5%. I’d continue to hold them today. BAE and Imperial are down 9% and 12% respectively. I still see these two as good buys for patient investors.ExceptionsI wrote last year that after a 10-year bull market, I was generally wary of both ‘cheap’ cyclical stocks and many growth stocks that, to my eye, had become too richly valued.I made an exception in the former category in tipping Barclays. It was simply too cheap to ignore, I felt. I also made an exception in the latter category in tipping National Express. I reckoned its P/E of 12 was undemanding. Both stocks made double-digit gains, but I saw them as still cheap enough to buy in December.Barclays has since fallen 26% and National Express a whopping 49%. However, I maintain my view there’s considerable value in these businesses for investors. As such, I reckon they’re very buyable today.Value-unlocking potentialFinally, after the 10-year bull-run, I was becoming increasingly interested in companies I felt could unlock value for shareholders with a major de-merger or sale of part of their business. Engineering conglomerate Smiths Group, which was planning a de-merger of its large medical division, particularly caught my eye.The share price was little changed by December, and I continued to see Smiths as a buy going into 2020. The shares are now down 15%, the de-merger I need hardly say is currently on hold, but I still see ultimate value-unlocking potential here.The Covid-19 pandemic has been an extraordinary event. However, in reviewing my best shares to buy of 2019 I’m not altogether surprised to feel much the same way about them today as I did before the pandemic.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rolls-Royce Holdings (LSE: RR) shares were the most popular choice with investors on share trading platform Hargreaves Lansdown last week.British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) wasn’t far behind, in second place by value.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…Both companies are ‘reopening stocks’, which depend heavily on air travel getting back to normal over the next year. I’ve been wondering whether I should buy one of them for my portfolio, or whether it’s too late to get on board this trade.What happens next?The IAG and Roll-Royce share prices have both risen by more than 100% from the lows seen in early October. Vaccine news in November put a rocket under these stocks, as it did with many others.Despite these gains, both Rolls-Royce and IAG are still trading at share prices 50% lower than in January 2020. At first glance, this might seem cheap. But I don’t think it is.The reason for this is that both companies have taken on extra debt and issued large numbers of new shares over the last year. They’ve been focused on survival. But as a potential investor, I’m focused on dilution.What this means is that from 2021 onwards, Rolls’ and IAG’s profits will be split among many more shares than in the past. This means that earnings per share will be much lower, even if profits return to pre-pandemic levels.The extra debt these companies have taken on also worries me. Debt payments always come ahead of shareholder dividends. These payments will now be bigger than they were before the pandemic.I think it could be a while before IAG and Rolls-Royce can start to pay attractive dividends again.Rolls-Royce shares vs IAG: what I’d buyThe other concern I have as a potential buyer is whether these are really good businesses. Airlines have a long history of boom and bust. But before the pandemic, many investors — even Warren Buffett — were starting to think things might be different now.It turns out they aren’t. Airlines still have high fixed costs that are difficult to manage when demand is disrupted. And they still face very tough competition from multiple rivals.Mr Buffett ditched his airline stocks early last year when the likely impact of the pandemic became clear.In my view, Rolls-Royce is a better business than IAG. This is because Rolls-Royce offers essential products with few competitors and a large base of existing customers. These customers are tied into Rolls on long-term maintenance contracts. When flying restarts, airlines will have to start spending money with Rolls-Royce again.To sum up, I don’t think Rolls-Royce shares or IAG shares look particularly cheap today. But if I did invest, I’d certainly choose Rolls. I think the engine maker is much more likely to deliver attractive long-term returns for shareholders. Hargreaves Lansdown investors are buying Rolls-Royce shares and IAG. Here’s what I’d do Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Havana, CubaDespite ongoing bilateral discussions and mutually beneficial agreements between the U.S. and Cuba following the Dec. 17, 2014, announcement by both countries that restored diplomatic relations, the U.S. has continued funding and promoting programs intended to undermine and overturn the socialist economic relations chosen by the Cuban people.The wpfwfm.org Haitian radio program Konbit Lakay reported Sept. 24 on the growing crisis at the Mexican border due to the Obama administration’s decision to reject thousands of Haitian refugees there and to step up deportations. The host compared these hostile actions to the preferential status accorded to Cubans entering the U.S.The 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act automatically considers all Cubans to be refugees, affording them social benefits and legal permanent residency status after remaining a year in the U.S. In 1995 the U.S. instituted the wet foot/dry foot policy, stating that if Cubans made it to the U.S. shore by boat they would be considered refugees. Those intercepted at sea would be returned to Cuba. The application of the CAA and wet foot/dry foot are both applied at the discretion of the U.S. president.As President of Haitian Women of Miami Marleine Bastie pointed out, conditions in Haiti are far worse than conditions in Cuba.Another continuing violation of Cuban sovereignty is the Cuban Medical Professional Parole program in effect since 2006. (tinyurl.com/CMPPprogram) Wholly at the discretion of the president, this brain drain entices medical professionals who enjoyed free education in Cuba to abandon internationalist missions and come to the U.S. Many who accept the bait find it is extremely difficult to get their U.S. medical license. (newswork.org, March 24)U.S. tax dollars urgently needed for human needs from Flint, Mich., to Appalachia are allocated to subversive programs in Cuba, without Cuba’s approval or consent. The United States Agency for International Development reports: “United States Congress appropriated $55 million for Cuba programs between fiscal years 2009-2011; USAID managed nearly $31 million of this amount, while the Department of State managed the remainder. Also, $20 million has been appropriated for fiscal year 2012.” (April 1, 2011) The so-called National Endowment for Democracy allocated more than $3 million in 2015 alone. (ned.org)These programs included one led by USAID contractor Alan Gross, who installed military-grade communication devices in three Cuban cities; the U.S. operation of a defunct Twitter-type communication system, promoted through front businesses in third countries to conceal the U.S. puppet-masters; programs aimed at Cuban hip-hop; and a patently transparent AIDS education program, which used young Latin Americans to try to identify Cuban youth open to pro-capitalist propaganda.Cuban youth rallied to expose the innocent-sounding World Learning Program and the Summer Leadership Program for Cuban Youth grant, which is funded by the U.S. State Department. On Sept. 28 students in Santiago de Cuba and in Ciego de Avila condemned U.S. government maneuvers that attempt to manipulate Cuban youth. An article in Granma points out these projects are “aimed at creating supposed opinion leaders and agents of change which have nothing in common with the Cuban Revolution’s social project. …“[Federation of University Students] President Abel Mayea categorically stated: ‘There are no ulterior motives in the scholarships awarded. It’s clear that they want to subdue us. Cuba is not opposed to exchanges, but these must be undertaken with respect and with complete adherence to institutionality. They won’t be able to offer us more than what the Revolution has given us in 58 years.’” (Sept. 29)The Cuban constitution guarantees the right to education, and 23 percent of Cuba’s national budget is devoted to it. One soon-to-be graduate civil engineer pointed out that “in these five years our Revolution has guaranteed all my studies, free of charge, which is why we don’t need any scholarships from the U.S.”Cuba’s Director of U.S. Affairs Josefina Vidal said in an Oct. 1 Q&A session on Twitter, “We insisted once again that the financing of programs aimed at provoking internal change in Cuba needs to be eliminated, which would be an essential step toward normalizing bilateral relations.”For the 25th consecutive year the United Nations General Assembly will vote in favor of Cuba’s resolution: “Necessity of ending the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the U.S. against Cuba.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
Home Indiana Agriculture News When it gets Technical, Farmers Want Help Talking with Public Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jan 29, 2018 SHARE ACI-farmer-panelThe Agribusiness Council of Indiana put together a farmer panel for its annual conference this year, held last Thursday and Friday in Indianapolis. The idea was for the assortment of representatives from ag-related business across the state to hear what farmers think on a wide range of topics.When it comes to consumers wanting to learn more about farm practices and how food is produced, pork producer David Hardin of Hardin Family Farms in Danville says engage with them.“I personally go out through a speakers’ bureau that our pork industry has,” Hardin said. “I go out and speak with high school groups and try and communicate what modern agriculture is like because of that much less than 2% actively engaged in agricultural production. A generation ago, even if you weren’t on a farm, Uncle Joe had a farm or grandpa had a farm. People could still relate.”Through the course of engaging with consumers, a farmer can learn much more about what they really value.“Is it they’re just paying lip service to something because they saw it on Facebook or because their cousin was talking about it at Thanksgiving dinner? Or is it really a trend?”But Don Lamb of Lamb Farms in Lebanon effectively challenged all vendors to be sure to help farmer customers with the information needed to engage with consumers.“The industry kind of pushes farmers out there as the people who should be trusted, and we’ve been told and told and told you’ve got to get out there and tell your story. There are times now because of the internet, there’s a lot of technical questions that we don’t know. It’s not just the feel-good stuff that we can tell them and paint them a pretty picture. There’s a very specific question about what does this do in my digestive system. And those are the kind of questions that I’m getting now that kind of scare me and intimidate me. I like the conversations, but there are times now when I don’t know enough of the answers.”Lamb said DowDuPont reps came to him after the merger stressing they wanted to be on his team when it comes to talking to the public. He said that was the best thing he’s heard from a sales person in a long time.Also participating were Joe Kelsay, Kelsay Farms in Whiteland, and Jim Kline, Kline Family Farms in Hartford City, Indiana.

Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites Reporters Without Borders learned with pleasure of the release, on 10 May 2005, of Luis Alberto Peña Vergaray, of Radio Nieva Televisión and his guide and interpreter Eduardo Arrobo Samaniego, who were taken captive by members of an indigenous community in the north-east Amazon region on 6 May. Their release went off smoothly and the hostages are in good health, said the Peruvian interior ministry, which broke the news that they had been freed. The Aguarunas community has denied any involvement in the 21 April murder of four health ministry employees, which the journalists had been investigating. They also deny any links with drug-traffickers which the Peruvian press has accused them of. The Aguarunas are calling for the setting up of a government commission to examine their economic, social and sanitation needs. Interior ministry officials who negotiated the journalists’ release promised to relay their demands to the government in Lima.________________________________________________________10.05.2005-Two journalists taken hostage by members of indigenous communityReporters Without Borders expressed alarm at the kidnapping of journalist Luis Alberto Peña Vergaray of Radio Nieva Televisión and his guide and interpreter Eduardo Arrobo Samaniego, by members of an indigenous community in the Amazonian province of Condorcanqui in Peru’s north-east.”We demand the immediate and unconditional release of the two hostages”, said Reporters Without Borders. “The economic plight of the Aguarunas community and its resentment of the Peruvian press cannot in any way justify kidnapping and blackmail.”It urged the interior ministry, which is dealing with the case, to carefully manage the hostage-takers susceptibilities and not to endanger the lives of the hostages.Peña Vergaray and Arrobo Samaniego were seized on 6 May 2005, while they were investigating the murder on 21 April of four health ministry agents in Pampa Entsa. The killing is believed to have been carried out by members of the indigenous community.The isolated and socially marginalised Aguarunas accuse the government of being indifferent to their plight and the Peruvian press have accused them of collusion with drug-traffickers. In kidnapping the two journalists, the community is seeking to express its discontent with the press and to get the government to set up a commission to respond to its economic and social needs.Peña Vergaray relayed the kidnappers’ demands to local station Radioprogrammas on 7 May. He said that he and his colleague were in good health and being well-treated. The Aguarunas representative, Antonio Mayán Sejekam, promised to guarantee the journalists’ physical wellbeing even if negotiations with the authorities were not successful, according to the Peruvian press freedom organisation Instituto Prensa y Sociedad. However during his phone conversation with Radioprogrammas, Peña Vergaray said he “feared for his life”, the news agency EFE reported. The interior ministry said on 9 May that the government commission demanded by the Aguarunas would only be set up once the hostages were released.

According to numbers released by RealtyTrac, home flips totaled nearly 157,000 in 2013, up 16% from 2012 and 114% from 2011.Investors also took in more money per flip compared to 2012, thanks to continued advances in home prices. The average gross profit for a home flipped last year was just over $58,000 dollars, up nearly 13 thousand from the previous year’s average.The National Association of Realtors’ Pending Home Sales Index fell nearly 9% in December, with declines reported in all four of the country’s major regions. As of the end of the year, the index measured 92.4, its weakest reading since October 2011. The NAR’s chief economist, Lawrence Yun, pointed to unusually disruptive weather and sluggish income growth as two factors in last month’s decline. Yun also blamed ongoing inventory constraints, particularly in the West.

Re-sales had the next highest share at 35.2 percent, followed by short sales at 32.7 percent. About 16.3 percent of newly constructed home sales were cash sales in November, CoreLogic reported.While the percentage of REO properties that were cash sales was high for November, REO sales accounted for just 10 percent of cash sales during the month – less than half of the peak percentage of 23.9 percent achieved in January 2011 at the height of the foreclosure wave.Overall cash sales continued their year-over-year decline in November despite inching upward from October, according to CoreLogic. Cash sales made up 36.1 percent of total home sales in November, down from 38.8 percent a year prior. The drop marks the 23rd straight month of year-over-year declines.Compared to October, the cash sales share was up about half a percentage point, “as is typical for the fall and winter months,” said Molly Boesel, senior economist at CoreLogic. Due to the housing market’s seasonality, Boesel says cash sales share comparisons are more revealing on a year-over-year basis.Despite continually falling for nearly two straight years, the share of cash sales still remains elevated from their pre-crisis norm by more than 10 percentage points. In its last estimate, CoreLogic predicted the cash sales share would decline back to those levels in 2017.
