Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Over the past several days, the FTSE 100 index has been stuck in a tight range. Domestic news may have highlighted that July business activity in the UK grew at its fastest pace in five years. However, market participants are concerned about rising Covid-19 numbers worldwide, as well as tensions between the US and China.Therefore today I’ll discuss two FTSE shares that may be appropriate for long-term portfolios, especially for Stocks and Shares ISAs, even if there are further pressure on broader markets in the coming weeks. Let’s take a closer look.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…FTSE mining giantChile-based FTSE 100 member Antofagasta‘s (LSE: ANTO) core business is mining, representing over 96% of revenue and EBITDA. As it operates four mines in Chile, the company benefits from increases in the price of copper, but that declined between 2010 and late 2016. And the share price of this FTSE mining giant mirrored this decrease. Yet between 2017 and early 2020, despite volatility, both the the price of copper and ANTO shares overall increased.However, this year as markets plunged and countries, including Chile, went into lockdown, prices of copper and Antofagasta shares took a hit. Since then, both have improved considerably. In fact, on 27 July, the stock hit a 52-week high.On 22 July it released a Q2 update that showed a drop in production during the quarter. Management now expects to meet the lower end of its full-year guidance. CEO Ivan Arriagada summarised that despite Covid-19 challenges “net cash costs at $1.12/lb are some 6% lower than last year as a result of the weaker Chilean peso, lower input costs and continued tight cost control”.I believe his words highlight the proactive stance of management, which has helped the group weather numerous headwinds in the past. Due to the recent rapid increase in price, trailing price-to-earnings sits at 25.77, which is a bit on the high end for the industry.In the coming weeks, there may be some profit-taking in FTSE shares, including ANTO, which would give a better entry price for investors. I’d consider buying it in an ISA, especially as the price goes towards, or even below, 1,000p.Financial security in retirement yearsMany financial planners highlight the importance of diversification to grow one’s savings, especially for later years. Now could be an opportune time to build a diverse Stocks and Shares ISA made up of high-quality businesses.Security outsourcing group G4S (LSE: GFS) offers a range of services and products, including the supply of security personnel, secure transportation of individuals, and risk management solutions. FTSE 250 member G4S also works with governments overseas to deliver security and forensic medical services.On 23 July, the group announced half-year results for the period to June. Revenue and EPS were £3.35bn and 6.3p respectively. Operating cash flow came at £364m, marking a significant increase from £164m in 2019. The group has been increasing its focus on integrated technology-enabled solutions. Management highlighted it was “generating an increasing proportion of revenues from integrated, technology-enabled solutions”, which it expects to help accelerate profitable growth. Earlier in April 2020, in order to conserve cash amid the uncertainties in the current environment, the company cut the final dividend payment. Year-to-date, GS4 shares are down around 33%, hovering at 147p. Its forward P/E and P/S are 12.60 and 0.31 respectively. I’d buy the dips.

The red enamel in the centre of each poppy has been made from a small amount of finely ground earth that was collected from Gommecourt, Hebuterne, Serre, Beaumont Hamel, Thiepval, Ovillers, La Boisselle, Fricourt and Mametz, and red enamel mixed together to create the colour red.19,240 pins have so far been produced as a tribute to the 19,240 lives lost on 1st July 1916. These have already sold out, raising thousands for the charity, with more being made. Each pin comes with a certificate featuring details of the individual soldier it commemorates, and costs £39.99 from the charity’s Poppy Shop. All proceeds go to support the charity’s work in providing care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces and their families.https://twitter.com/evemsteward/status/748582009702912000 read more

The appeal will be match-funded by the government with the charity aiming to engage a much wider audience than in the past through its approach.GOOD agency won the work through a competitive pitch and has developed a multi-channel appeal that aims to break down the barriers between the charity’s audiences in the UK and its beneficiaries by focusing on shared values and cultural similarities. The campaign features a community in a village in Sierra Leone called Tombohuaun as it waits for the arrival of clean water, telling the human story of how supporters can help the most hard to reach people by bringing them the clean water through the voices of the villagers. 281 total views, 1 views today Melanie May | 7 November 2017 | News 282 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 read more
Honduras police agents detain campesino leaders in the Aguan Valley at a protest in the capital, Tegucigalpa. Military soldiers increasingly have taken on police roles in Honduras.With the advent of the ominous Donald Trump administration, a look at the beleaguered nation of Honduras is critical in order for the anti-war and solidarity movement to step up its work — not only with Honduras but for all of Latin America and the Caribbean. Solidarity with Central America is particularly key in light of the crisis of forced migration.Developments in Honduras address many social movements mirrored in the U.S. — the struggle for migrant rights, for climate justice, against racism and the rights of Indigenous people are examples.Self-determination violatedConditions are magnified in Honduras, however, as they are in the context of U.S. imperialism’s centuries-long drive for domination of Latin America and the Caribbean. This drive continues, no matter whether under a Barack Obama or a Trump administration.Since 2009, when the progressive presidential administration of Mel Zelaya was overturned by a brutal coup orchestrated by U.S. imperialism, conditions for the Honduran people have deteriorated dramatically.The Obama administration, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in particular, allowed the overthrow of the fair election of President Zelaya because Zelaya was attempting to improve the standard of living for the poorest of the country.A pro-imperialist, pro-capitalist administration was then installed, ushering in a wave of repression and a further decline of the standard of living.According to TeleSUR: “Honduras is … the second poorest country in Central America and the sixth most unequal country in the world, according to World Bank statistics. The poverty rate currently stands at 64.5 percent, while 42.6 percent of Hondurans live in extreme poverty.” (Jan. 6)Honduras has also been deemed one of the most dangerous countries for human rights activists, journalists and unionists in the world. Indigenous people, Afro-Hondurans and the LGBTQ community are especially targeted for repression and violence.For example, on Jan. 11, well-known Garifuna leader Miriam Miranda and three other members of OFRANEH (Fraternal Organization of Black and Garifuna Peoples) were stopped by armed agents of the state and held for several hours. The OFRANEH organization has been consistently targeted by the Honduran police and military.The Garifuna people are descendants of West African slaves and number around 100,000 people in Honduras.This was not the first time Miranda or members of OFRANEH have been detained. In fact, Miranda’s life, like that of Berta Cáceres, has been threatened several times.The violent repression against Honduran freedom fighters was especially brought to light on March 3, when Cáceres, an environmentalist and social justice leader, was shot and killed in her home.Cáceres had won several awards and was recognized around the world for her work to stop a hydroelectric project on her land. The Global Witness organization reports that at least 120 environmental activists have been killed in Honduras since 2009.Cáceres’ family, as well as the entire movement, believe that Cáceres was killed by the Desarrollos Energéticos SA corporation, owner and operator of the Agua Zarca hydroelectric project in Honduras, and the Honduran government, who contracted assassins to murder her and other activists.Cáceres was a leader of the Indigenous Lenca people and led a bold and vibrant struggle against the Agua Zarca dam. This dam, located on Lenca land, was controversial because it was imposed without consent from the local communities and was a threat to the environment.Even though eight people have currently been charged by the government for her murder, the family and her organization continue to heroically demand structural changes and for the arrest of those at the top who ordered her murder.Tens of thousands have been killed in Honduras since 2009. One source of the violence is the horrid drug trafficking that the U.S. is suspiciously unable to halt. This has forced tens of thousands of Hondurans to flee for their lives and make their way to the U.S.The Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders reported on Dec. 1 that “human rights defenders in Honduras face killings, constant threats, and criminalization, making the Central American country one of the most dangerous in the world for human rights activists.”This U.S.-made violence and instability is the cause of the forced migrations. If and when Trump decides to further militarize the border or escalate Obama’s deportation policies, more deaths at the border and in Honduras can be expected.Several media sources, including NBC news, reported on Jan. 19 that a large spike of particularly Central American migrants had arrived at the Texas-Mexico border in order to enter the U.S. before Trump’s inauguration.U.S. imperialism’s roleDevelopments in Honduras and Central America are not an isolated phenomenon. They are part and parcel of longstanding U.S. policies.A Truthout Jan. 17 report stated that “U.S. military funding for Honduras during the Obama administration has caused unprecedented levels of violence” and “has exacerbated gang activity and local government impunity. Donald Trump’s presidency will likely worsen these current trends.”The report continues: “President-elect Trump’s appointment of Gen. John Kelly to head the Department of Homeland Security is a worrying sign. Kelly was head of the U.S. Southern Command during the Obama years and oversaw violent, counter-narcotic efforts across Latin America. He’s a drug war zealot.”As has been stated by the anti-war and progressive movements for decades, the billions that Washington spends in Colombia, Mexico and elsewhere to allegedly fight drugs has been used instead to militarize those countries and to repress all those who struggle — all in order to protect U.S. corporate interests.It is unknown what selected President Donald Trump will actually do in Latin America. But imperialism’s attempt to derail the left turn in Latin America — in Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador in particular — will surely continue and is a danger to the peoples of the Americas.Solidarity with the struggles in the Americas is critical. Later this year, for example, Xiomara Zelaya is expected to run for president in Honduras. She has declared that Honduras must fight for “democratic socialism.”A victory for Zelaya would be helpful to the fight to defend President Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela and Evo Morales in Bolivia.Solidarity is imperative, not just for the Central and Latin American people but for the movement here as well. A victory for the Lenca people in stopping the Agua Zarca dam, for example, is a victory for Standing Rock.Now more than ever, our fight against the capitalist system must go global.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more

A specialist care home for the elderly near Abingdon is to close after St John’s College, the landowner, raised the rent 900%.Southmoor House, near Abingdon, which cares for 24 residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, cannot afford the financial burden of both the college’s rent rise and the costly building repairs it needs to keep running. A spokesperson said it is “financially impossible” to keep the home open.The family-run care facility has been open for more than 60 years, with some residents having lived there for more than ten. It employs 25 carers, who have specialist training in caring for dementia patients.In response to the closure, St John’s College explained it “regrets the loss of any business tenant but, as a charity, the college [has] a duty and legal responsibility to make best use of its assets to support its programmes of education and research.”According to Julie Dabrowski, a senior carer at the home, staff were given a month’s notice of the closure. However, it is now expected to stay in operation until February. She explained that the home had attempted to renegotiate the deal with St John’s, but this fell through.Dabrowski went on to say that she was very concerned for the well-being of the patients at the home, given that specialised care of the type offered by Southmoor House is difficult to find. Some of the patients are in the home privately and some through the NHS, and she was particularly worried about the possibility of finding new homes for those on government funding.In addition, the upheaval is likely to be harmful to some patients – one resident is too frightened to leave the building, and she is anxious the trauma of a move may lead to the death of one or more elderly patients. In light of this, she said losing her job was a “secondary concern”.A DPhil student at St John’s, Jonah Rosenberg, expressed confidence in the college’s decision, saying that “though it’s certainly not the most pleasant transaction … [I] trust that this will have been a necessary part of keeping the college economically healthy. St John’s academic mission cannot be valued as more or less worthy than the care of the elderly; in an ideal world, both would be feasible.”He added that he did not believe the ninefold rent increase was arbitrary, “but rather the result of the college not having revalued the property for some time.” read more
