5 UK shares I’d buy in my ISA if stock markets fall again

first_img Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! With a Tier 4 having been introduced in parts of England this Christmas, it’s clear the fallout from the pandemic is very far from over. There’s also the real possibility that despite the action governments around the world have taken to try and prop up economies through this, the stock market could fall again.If that happens there are some defensive shares – those where demand remains even if the economy slumps – which should do better than most and keep paying dividends.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…The energy sector is well placed to survive any stock market fallTwo companies I’d back in the energy sector are SSE and National Grid. The former is particularly well placed to benefit from the transition to renewables. SSE is very focused on wind power in the UK and Ireland.National Grid could also benefit from exposure to renewables. In 2019 it bought Geronimo Energy in the US – a wind and solar developer in North America. I like National Grid’s US operations as well as its non-regulated activities that could both create platforms for future growth.Supermarkets: another sector for stable returnsDemand for food holds up in all economic conditions. As a market leader, I back Tesco to keep performing well, even as the discounters keep growing in the UK. It’s become a stronger business in recent years and is now under new leadership. Ken Murphy joined just a few months ago, a former Walgreens Boots Alliance executive.Tesco has become leaner and more focused on the UK. As such, I’d expect it to be able to provide steady, growing returns in the coming years and remain a strong business.Technology is here to stayTechnology has been the big winner of 2020. As millions worked from home and shopped online regularly, the transition to a digital world took leaps forward. It was a process that was already happening. This is good news for shares such as Softcat and FDM Group.The former is a technology reseller with an enviable record. I’ve liked the business for a while and expect it to keep doing well. Indeed, its performance this year shows why it’s a business that might be worth backing.In its full-year results, back in the summer, sales in the 12 months to 31 July were ahead 8.6% at £1.08bn. Operating profits meanwhile rose 10.9% to £93.7m. Earnings per share were 38.2p, a 10.4% increase.FDM Group, which is involved in IT training and IT support to businesses is also in a sweet spot for growth in a digital world.These are five shares that I expect can do well if the stock market falls again. All are very good businesses in my opinion. I think they will grow their share prices and dividends from this point on and reward investors.

Foto de Janet Kawamoto.[Episcopal News Service] Los carismas de las escuelas episcopales — una “generosa amplitud, paciencia con flexibilidad, y una búsqueda del saber que se asienta en la creencia profunda y perdurable en la bondad y creatividad del mundo”— las hacen particularmente idóneas para la formación de líderes en un mundo cada vez más globalizado e interconectado, dijo la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori a los asistentes a una reunión en Anaheim, California, el 21 de noviembre.Más de 650 maestros, directores de escuelas, obispos, rectores de parroquias, administradores, capellanes y otras personas venidas de diversas partes del mundo se reunieron del 20 al 22 de noviembre para festejar la educación episcopal y el 50º. Aniversario de la Asociación Nacional de Escuelas Episcopales (NAES, por su sigla en inglés).“La educación episcopal aborda el panorama general… supervisando, ascendiendo a la cumbre en un sentido estratégico para ver la totalidad del paisaje, y no sólo el contexto inmediato y local”, dijo la Obispa Primada.“Se trata de comprensión y de inclusión; se trata de una orientación hacia la totalidad del cuerpo [social], en lugar de sólo hacia una parte. Ese supuesto fundamental es el porqué reúnen a estudiantes de tan diferentes tradiciones religiosas y de ninguna, el porqué buscan a estudiantes de diversos estratos sociales, el porqué con tanta frecuencia atraen a estudiantes internacionales, el porqué procuran con ahínco creciente ser más plurales que las comunidades en la cuales están establecidas”.Ella retó al grupo a considerar un nombre que refleje su carácter global. También asistían representantes docentes de Haití, de Australia y de Canadá.Ejemplos notables de la docencia como misión incluye, dijo ella, a la Universidad de Cuttington en Liberia, a la Universidad de Rikkyo en Japón, a la histórica Universidad de San Juan [St. John’s] y a la Universidad de la Trinidad [Trinity] en Manila.La NAES comprende más de 1.000 escuelas en Estados Unidos y otros países, según el Rdo. Dan Heischman, su director ejecutivo.“En mi opinión, éste es uno de los campos de misión de la Iglesia más importantes y valiosos de la Iglesia”, dijo él. “Se ocupa de plantar semillas. En lo que respecta a posibilidades, la Iglesia se preocupa muchísimo de lo que puede hacer para llegar a las personas no religiosas que podrían interesarse en la Iglesia Episcopal. Sólo un 20 por ciento de los estudiantes que asisten a escuelas episcopales son episcopales, de manera que tenemos una fantástica oportunidad de llegar a la gente… de tener un verdadero impacto en sus vidas, de diversas maneras”.Las escuelas varían de tamaño, desde las muy pequeñas, como la escuela de San Timoteo [St. Timothy] en Compton, California, de sólo siete alumnos, hasta la más grande, Iolani, con más de 2.000 alumnos en Honolulú. La mayoría tiende a concentrarse en el desarrollo preescolar y de la temprana infancia.Además de reunir a educadores con vistas a la colaboración y la interconexión, la conferencia “está formulando una visión para los próximos 50 años”, dijo Heischman. “Es una oportunidad para las escuelas episcopales a través de la Iglesia de reunirse, de celebrar las cosas estupendas que hacen las escuelas y del impacto que tienen. Muchas de nuestras escuelas están aisladas de las demás”.Earvin “Magic” Johnson, el gran baloncestista retirado de los Lakers de Los Ángeles, se dirige a la reunión de la NAES. Foto de Janet Kawamoto.Earvin “Magic” Johnson, el gran baloncestista retirado de los Lakers de Los Ángeles se dirigió a la reunión como un padre cuyos hijos asistieron a Campbell Hall, una escuela episcopal de la zona de Los Ángeles.Johnson, que ahora es copropietario del equipo de béisbol Los Dodgers de Los Ángeles, del equipo nacional de baloncesto femenino Los Ángeles Sparks, y del Club de Fútbol de Los Ángeles, un equipo profesional, se refirió a la importancia de enviar a sus hijos —y ahora a un nieto— a una escuela episcopal.“Muchísimas veces, ustedes han realizado una labor ingrata, porque los jóvenes no entienden lo que han hecho por ellos. Yo he disfrutado cada momento que mis hijos han pasado en Campbell Hill. Estoy tan orgulloso de que mis niños hayan asistido a Campbell Hill que no podría imaginarlos en ninguna otra escuela”, afirmó.“Me encanta la capilla de los viernes, pero también todos y cada uno de los días en que ellos obtuvieron una educación de calidad que no les cambió su identidad como E.J. y Elisa. [Esa educación] les permitió ser ellos mismos y tener un poco de gracia social… porque eso es importante”.Él también comentó la importancia de la educación en preparar a los jóvenes para ser líderes, como su propio caso a partir de un origen humilde en el pueblo de Lansing, Michigan, donde él y sus nueve hermanos vivían en una casa de tres habitaciones.Un maestro le pidió ayuda durante un período de tensiones raciales, y Johnson, ahora de 55 años, le dijo a la reunión: “ese día Dios me hizo líder”, una tradición que ha mantenido desde entonces.Los temas de los talleres y los conversatorios también se concentraron en algunos de los retos que enfrentan las escuelas, entre ellos el mantener una identidad como escuela episcopal en medio de los cambios demográficos, las [nuevas] tecnologías y una creciente cultura secular.La psicóloga Madeline Levine, autora de The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids [El precio del privilegio: cómo la presión de los padres y las ventajas materiales están creando una generación de niños desconectados e infelices] (HarperCollins, 2008), y primera oradora de la reunión, explicó cómo las limitadas definiciones del éxito estresan y marginan innecesariamente a los estudiantes creativos.Como psicóloga en ejercicio, sus clientes incluyen a niños que “han entrado en crisis por haber sido totalmente protegidos del fracaso, el reto y la decepción”.Citando a una madre que le dijo que no podía soportar ver a su hijo infeliz, Levine recalcó: “Si usted no puede soportar ver a su hijo infeliz, ha elegido la carrera equivocada… porque eso es una realidad de la vida. De qué manera pasa un niño de que se le rompa su juguete preferido a los 5 años a que se le rompa el corazón a los 15 por un primer amor, a que lo despidan de su primer empleo a los 25, a la pérdida de sus padres a los 55… sencillamente así es la vida y la preparación para la vida incluye no sólo las admisiones universitarias, sino la capacidad de enfrentar los retos de una manera sana”.Ella agregó que uno de cada cuatro estudiantes del último año de secundaria en comunidades prósperas tiene una enfermedad mental diagnosticable. “Desde el punto de vista de la pérdida de niños con posibilidades, es enorme. Desde el punto de vista de los trabajadores, es enorme. Desde el punto de vista de una democracia dinámica, es enorme. Y si fuera cualquier otra cosa, salvo una enfermedad mental, habría habido una gigantesca campaña, pero la salud mental es un gravísimo tabú”.Contó que una secundaria afiliada a la Universidad de Stanford, California, donde ella trabaja, “acababa de tener su séptimo suicidio en dos años”. Los factores coadyuvantes incluyen falta de apoyo, falta de sentido [en sus vidas] y falta de adultos conocedores que los supervisen, afirmó.La conferencia incluyó también centenares de sesiones de temas tan variados como equidad y justicia, liderazgo y gobierno, el ministerio de la enseñanza, vida escolar y estudio personal de la identidad episcopal dirigido por Heischman.El culto y la capilla diarios contaron con la participación de algunos jóvenes, entre ellos la de Sarah Engel, de 17 años, estudiante de la escuela episcopal de Santa Margarita de Escocia [St. Margaret of Scotland] en San Juan Capistrano, que predicó sobre la esperanza en el futuro y la historia de Jonás en el Antiguo Testamento (Jonás 1:17).“Con frecuencia en nuestras vidas nos encontramos huyendo de nuestros objetivos —ya sea con plena conciencia de ello o no. Menos mal que en el momento en que nos damos cuenta de que nos hemos equivocado, en el momento en que nos percatamos de que en verdad nos hemos metido en un lío, Dios nos envía un gran pez para tragarnos por entero” le dijo ella a la audiencia.“En otras palabras, Dios nos da una oportunidad de pensar, mientras nos conduce activamente hacia nuestra segunda oportunidad. Si somos como la gente de Nínive, permitiremos que esa segunda oportunidad nos transforme. Percibimos el atisbo de la esperanza, el susurro de la salvación, en cualquier problema en que nos encontremos, y nos aferramos a él. Podemos asumir ese indicio de Dios y convertirlo en el centro de nuestras vidas.“Como cristiana y como una adolescente excesivamente impresionante y hormonal, esta esperanza es para mí lo más importante, el mayor consuelo de mi vida”.“Miro a los ojos de mis padre, miro a los relatos que me han contado desde que era bebé, miro al estrellado cielo nocturno, y siento que Dios me dice que esta esperanza es inquebrantable. Me esfuerzo por llevar este conocimiento a mi vida diaria. Constituye un reto, algo que creo es una trayectoria de por vida. Lo cierto es que la esperanza que encontramos en Dios no es más que un pequeño atisbo, y eso no explica nada. No obstante, eso significa todo. Mi oración es que mantenga ese atisbo ante mí en el transcurso de mi vida y que lo valore como el milagro que realmente es”.– La Rda Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service.

Biofuels Organizations Call on President to Support the RFS

first_imgHome Energy Biofuels Organizations Call on President to Support the RFS Previous articleEPA Registration Approval Announced for Two New Herbicides by SyngentaNext articleTwo Percent of Indiana Corn Harvested Andy Eubank Biofuels Organizations Call on President to Support the RFS Growth Energy and seven other biofuel organizations have sent a letter to President Obama outlining the importance of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), explaining the inherent flexibility of the RFS to deal with a short crop, as caused by this year’s drought. Additionally the letter went on to explain the many counterintuitive consequences of waiving the RFS.“While the Environmental Protection Agency has the fiduciary duty to review the petitions filed by state governors, I felt it was critical that the industry communicated the importance of the RFS and how a waiver will  not accomplish the goal of bringing down grain prices,” stated Tom Buis CEO of Growth Energy.“Trying to blame the ethanol industry is disingenuous and misplaced. The true culprit is Mother Nature and there is no tool available to alter the unpredictable,” Buis continued. “Currently there is a tremendous amount of misinformation surrounding the drought and ethanol production and educating policymakers on the facts is a top priority.Ethanol production does not use 40 percent of the corn, but only 16 percent of the total net corn acreage. In the production of ethanol, only the starch is removed, so the co-product is a high protein animal feed, known as distillers grains, which not only replaces corn for livestock feed, but also displaces soybean meal.The market is already working in the response to high commodity prices. Ethanol production is down 15 percent and obligated parties have the option to use an excess of 2.5 billion RFS credits. This waiver would only hurt family farmers by asking them to accept a lower price during a year they are facing a short crop.When you look at the facts, obligated parties will continue to use ethanol in blending gasoline as it is the cheapest source of octane on the market – and removing that ability would only drive up gas prices, having a far greater effect on consumers.“The biofuels industry has created and supported nearly 500,000 jobs during difficult economic times, and to grant a waiver that would cause widespread job loss and suppress investment in the next generation biofuels would set a bad precedent. An isolated event surrounded by hysteria and misinformation should not dictate policy decisions,” Buis concluded.Source: Growth Energy Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Aug 27, 2012 last_img read more

Weekly Ethanaol Production Down

first_img By Gary Truitt – Dec 2, 2016 Facebook Twitter According to EIA data analyzed by the Renewable Fuels Association, ethanol production averaged 1.012 million barrels per day (b/d)—or 42.50 million gallons daily.

That is a 2.7% decrease from last week and the lowest level of stocks in more than a year. Ethanol stocks currently sit at just over 20 days of supply, the lowest implied stocks-to-use since October 2015.Imports of ethanol were nonexistent for the 14th week in a row.Gasoline demand for the week averaged 381.4 million gallons (9.080 million barrels) daily. Refiner/blender input of ethanol averaged 906,000 b/d.Expressed as a percentage of daily gasoline demand, daily ethanol production was 11.15%.

Call for compensation after rebels ransack and loot Bangui media

first_img Organisation News News Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the irresponsible and unacceptable behaviour of members of the Seleka rebel coalition who have robbed or ransacked several news media since entering the capital, Bangui, three days ago.Rebel leaders have said they are trying to stop the looting.Reporters Without Borders calls on the most senior officials now in control in Bangui to order the return of stolen equipment and to organize compensation for media that have suffered damage.The press freedom organization has been trying to reach Seleka spokesman Christophe Gazam Betty by telephone, but so far without success. He is now communication minister in a new government of national unity.Momet Mathurin Constant Nestor, the editor of the privately-owned newspaper Le Confident, described to Reporters Without Borders and its Kinshasa-based partner organization, Journalist in Danger, how his newspaper was ransacked on 24 and 25 March.“The rebels have wiped out all my investments of the past 10 years,” he said. “It will be some time before I will be able to resume operating.” Referring to newly-ousted President Bozizé, he added: “I don’t know why they targeted me because neither I nor Le Confident were part of the Bozizé system.”Another local journalist said: “We are in the presence of vandals who are looting everything in their path.”Members of the Seleka rebel force also looted the UN radio station, Radio Ndeke Luka, taking one of its cars and five motorcycles, smashing office furniture and stealing at least two laptop computers. ID papers, money and other personal effects were taken from the station’s manager, Sylvie Panika.As a result, Radio Ndeke Luka was off the air on 24 and 25 March, but was able to resume broadcasting yesterday because its studios and transmitters survived unscathed.Privately-owned Radio Néhémie and the Bangui offices of the Institut Panos Paris were also looted.Reporters Without Borders is very concerned for the physical safety of journalists in the Central African Republic and their ability to work, and therefore urges Bangui’s new strongman, Michel Djotodia, to guarantee the media’s right to operate freely and safely.
