I think the GlaxoSmithKline share price could help you retire early

first_img Since the turn of the year, the GlaxoSmithKline (LSE:GSK) share price has fallen nearly 10%. During the same period, the FTSE 100 has performed far worse, losing nearly 20% of its value. GSK’s resilience to the current economic challenges is no surprise to me, and I believe the share price is a bargain at its current price.GlaxoSmithKline is a £33bn global healthcare behemoth that produces prescription medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products. Companies in the healthcare sector are non-cyclical as demand for their products remain high, regardless of the state of the economy. Up to the end of April, its sales had risen by 10% and underlying profits had increased by 14%. These strong fundamentals reaffirm my belief that any share price discount should be viewed as a great opportunity to invest.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…Changing shape of the businessGlaxoSmithKline has plans to demerge the consumer healthcare side of the business via a joint venture with Pfizer within two years. The new business will sell healthcare staples, such as toothpaste, pain relief and cold and flu remedies. Consumer loyalty to brands such as Sensodyne and Paradol will ensure robust revenue streams and provide the business with defensive resilience to future economic challenges. The business will be similar in nature to sector rival Reckitt Benckiser, the owner of consumer healthcare brands such as Nurofen and Dettol.The remaining GlaxoSmithKline business will focus on discovering, developing and selling prescription medicines and enhancing its large portfolio of available vaccines. Its business portfolio will be similar in nature to its sector rival AstraZeneca.Increasing net debt to facilitate GlaxoSmithKline splitting into two has the potential to create investor uncertainty, which could negatively affect its share price. However, I believe any negative sentiment to the planned demerger is misguided.It has long been muted by economic commentators that the sum of GlaxoSmithKline’s parts could be worth more than the whole. I don’t think this potential is factored into the current share price as the business is conservatively valued, with a price-to-earnings ratio of just 14.Income championSince the UK went into total lockdown at the end of March, 41 companies in the FTSE 100 have either cut or deferred their dividend payments.GlaxoSmithKline is an income investor’s dream, and is one of the few companies in the FTSE 100 that pays a quarterly dividend. Its dividend payments are sustainable and are covered nearly 1.5 times by free cashflow.The 5% dividend yield is above the FTSE 100 average and dwarfs the sub-3% yields that shareholders of sector rivals Reckitt Benckiser and AstraZeneca receive.SummaryI believe the long-term prospects for GlaxoSmithKline are excellent and that the current share price is undervalued. The dividend payments are sustainable, and the yields are excellent. The pending demerger should be viewed as an opportunity to enhance extra shareholder value.I am convinced that investing in GlaxoSmithKline at the current share price and reinvesting those generous dividends has the long-term potential to make you rich and retire early.

Adding US tech stocks to my portfolio right now: yes or no?

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. US tech stocks have been in the headlines quite a bit. That’s because, after an amazing 2020 for the FAANGs and the wider tech-related investing world, 2021 has been tougher to date. This can be seen in the performance of the tech-heavy NASDAQ, which has fallen over 5% in just the last month. Although, it should be noted that, its longer-term performance is far stronger. However, as a long-term investor, I’m not really all that interested in what’s happening right now. I’m more interested in asking is this an opportunity to add US tech stocks to my portfolio, and if so, how should I do it?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…More exposure to these shares than I realiseIn fact, like many UK investors, I already have some indirect exposure to US tech stocks. I have a Russell 2000 ETF, as well as an S&P 500 ETF, and I also hold funds holding tech companies.This may cloud to some extent whether I want to add more US tech stocks to my portfolio.When it comes to having US tech stocks in my portfolio I like going down the route of using a fund, trust, or tracker to get exposure to the US tech stocks. The reasons are that investing this way leads to a diversity of holdings, reduced risk, and there’s a manager monitoring the whole industry to try and find the very best, most innovative companies.What’s causing US tech stocks to wobble?Let’s be clear this is not a crash. Arguably there’s some frothiness in some of the valuations we’re seeing with some shares, but the problem primarily is not with the companies themselves. It’s far more to do with investor concerns over inflation, which tends to lead to value shares performing better.Tech companies themselves continue to be innovators with strong potential for current and future profit growth, which should in turn serve investors well.What’s the long-term outlook?So for me the long-term outlook therefore for these kinds of expensive growth shares remains strong. Especially if I add them as part of a diversified portfolio.Investors in the US in particular will continue to back these companies I think, even in an inflationary environment.These shares face some risks, most likely from regulation, but also from their high valuations. Overall though for me the ability of big tech giants to innovate is exciting and could provide a boost to my portfolio.That said, I’m not in any rush to add US tech stocks to my portfolio. I think there are opportunities in the UK both in value and growth stocks that I would add before stocking up on US tech shares. I will keep my eye on them, though. If valuations continue to fall I may pick up a trust that invests in US tech stocks so that I can benefit from future growth.If I did decide to add I’d probably do it through a fund or trust, so I’m using a professional’s expertise to access the very best companies.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Pope Francis visits martyrs’ shrine

It exists because these men refused to submit to their then King’s homosexual advances. These martyrs sacrificed their lives in defense of heterosexuality. How typical for Bergoglio, the media manipulator and modernist deceiver, to ignore this truth. Bergoglio the appeaser of the gay / transgender secularist cabal being pushed onto the Holy Catholic Church. No where, absolutely no where while in Uganda did Bergoglio say why this Uganda shrine exists, for it’s a clear and eloquent statement AGAINST the sodomite gay. morally corrupt lobby that Bergoglio is forcing on the Catholic Church.

Photo: Petero Buyondo and Francis Emorut[Anglican Communion News Service] Pope Francis has made a visit to the Anglican shrine to the Ugandan Martyrs in Namugongo, and spoke of the “ecumenism of blood”.The Pope looked visibly pained and shocked as Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, primate of the Anglican Church of Uganda, explained how the martyrs were put to death on the orders of the King of Buganda in the late 19th Century for refusing to renounce their faith.Later, in a sermon during a Papal Mass outside the Catholic shrine, Pope Francis spoke of the sacrifice of the 45 men – 23 Anglicans and 22 Roman Catholics – saying that their “witness of love for Christ and his Church has truly gone ‘to the end of the earth.’“We remember also the Anglican martyrs whose deaths for Christ testify to the ecumenism of blood. All these witnesses nurtured the gift of the Holy Spirit in their lives and freely gave testimony of their faith in Jesus Christ, even at the cost of their lives, many at such a young age.“The gift of the Holy Spirit is a gift which is meant to be shared. It unites us to one another as believers and living members of Christ’s mystical Body. We do not receive the gift of the Spirit for ourselves alone, but to build up one another in faith, hope and love.”He said that the Ugandan Martyrs “had tended to their faith and deepened their love of God, they were fearless in bringing Christ to others, even at the cost of their lives. Their faith became witness; today, venerated as martyrs, their example continues to inspire people throughout the world. They continue to proclaim Jesus Christ and the power of his Cross.“Like the Apostles and the Uganda martyrs before us, we have received the gift of the Holy Spirit to become missionary disciples called to go forth and bring the Gospel to all. At times this may take us to the end of the earth, as missionaries to faraway lands.This is essential to the spread of God’s Kingdom, and I ask always for your generous response to this need. But we do not need to travel to be missionary disciples. In fact, we need only to open our eyes and see the needs in our homes and our local communities to realize how many opportunities await us.“Here too the Uganda martyrs show us the way. Their faith sought the good of all people, including the very King who condemned them for their Christian beliefs. Their response was to meet hatred with love, and thus to radiate the splendour of the Gospel. They did not simply tell the King what the Gospel does not allow, but showed through their lives what saying ‘yes’ to Jesus really means. It means mercy and purity of heart, being meek and poor in spirit, and thirsting for righteousness in the hope of an eternal reward.”During the tour of the new Uganda Martyrs Museum at the Anglican Shrine, Pope Francis and Archbishop Stanley paused at the fire pit where the twenty-three Anglicans and twenty-two Roman Catholic converts to Christianity were brutally martyred on 3rd June 1886. “This is ecumenism,” Pope Francis told Archbishop Stanley.Pope Francis and Archbishop Stanley Ntagali enter the Anglican Shrine to the Ugandan Martyrs in Namugongo. Photo: Petero Buyondo and Francis Emorut“The Roman Catholic martyrs died for the same Jesus Christ as the Anglican martyrs,” Archbishop Stanley said. “Together, they suffered; together, they sacrificed; together, they sang. Together, their blood has been the seed of the church in Uganda.”It is a message that echoed Pope Francis’ words in July this year in St peter’s Square in Rome as he anticipated his visit to Uganda. “The blood of the martyrs makes us one,” he said. “We know that those who kill Christians in hatred of Jesus Christ, before killing, do not ask: ‘Are you an Evangelical, or [Anglican], or Orthodox?’ They say: ‘You are Christian,’ and behead them.”Last week, the same message was repeated by the Preacher to the Papal Household, Father Raniero Cantalamessa, in a sermon at Westminster Abbey ahead of the Church of England’s General Synod: “In many parts of the world people are killed and churches burned not because they are Catholic, or Anglican, or Pentecostals, but because they are Christians,” he said. “In their eyes we are already one! Let us be one also in our eyes and in the eyes of God.”Alluding to a traditional African proverb, Archbishop Stanley said, “If we want to go fast, let us go alone. As the wider Christian community in Uganda, however, if we want to go far, let us go together. This is why we were very happy to welcome the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church to the [Anglican] Church of Uganda.”During the Pope’s brief visit to the Anglican Martyrs’ Shrine, he also emphasised the importance of prayer by kneeling at the torture tree and offering a personal prayer.Pope Francis prays at the torture tree at the Anglican Shrine to the Ugandan Martyrs in Namugongo. Photo: Petero Buyondo and Francis EmorutWhen he emerged from his private tour of the museum, he was welcomed by a very large, enthusiastic, and ululating crowd. He responded by inviting everyone to pray The Lord’s Prayer together.The assembled congregation then received a double apostolic blessing with Pope Francis and Archbishop Stanley together conferring on everyone the Blessing of God Almighty: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.The House of Bishops of the Church of Uganda, along with the Provincial Heads of Laity and Clergy, the Provincial President of Mother’s Union, and several thousand Anglican clergy and laity arrived at the Martyrs’ Shrine at sunrise to prepare to welcome the Pope.Retired Archbishop Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo has spearheaded the development of the Uganda Martyrs’ Museum to ensure their legacy for future generations.Pope Francis unveiled a dedication stone and offered a prayer that the Uganda Martyrs would continue to inspire generations of youth to follow Christ. Later in the afternoon he met thousands of Ugandan youth in Kampala to encourage them to pray and be faithful to Christ.The President of Uganda and the First Lady were also present at the Anglican Martyrs’ Shrine.Pope Francis is the third Pope to visit the Anglican shrine. Paul VI visited on 2nd August 1969; five years earlier, in 1964, he had canonized the Roman Catholic martyrs. Pope John Paul II visited on 7th March 1993.

Lawyer’s trial slated as a “mockery”

first_img Help by sharing this information News Organisation RSF_en April 29, 2005 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Lawyer’s trial slated as a “mockery” Reporters Without Borders condemned a “mockery of a trial” in which a lawyer was found guilty of posting “false news” on the Internet and urged democratic countries to boycott the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis in November 2005 unless Tunisia ended its Internet crackdown and released him.Mohammed Abbu was sentenced overnight on 28-29 April to three years and six months in prison “at the end of a trial that trampled on the most elementary rules of law,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation.”The charges against him were baseless. He was really punished for having used the Internet to criticise government corruption,” it said. “In a cruel irony, he will be in prison when the WSIS opens in Tunis, in November 2005 – a conference on the circulation of news and information on the Net.” Abbu, who was arrested on 1st March 2005, was sentenced to two years in prison for supposedly physically attacking a colleague at a conference in 2002 and 18 months for posting an article on the website Tunisnews in August 2004 in which he compared torture in Tunisia to US soldiers’ abuses of prisoners in Baghdad’s Abu Ghraib prison.Many observers at the trial said they believed his conviction was really connected with another article posted on the Internet shortly before his arrest, in which he criticised Tunisia’s invitation to Israel’s prime minister Ariel Sharon to attend the WSIS and, using irony, exposed corruption among the president’s family. One of Abbu’s lawyers described him as the “personal hostage of (Tunisian president) Ben Ali”.Abbu’s lawyers had refused to enter a plea on the assault charge, which they were notified of only days before the case was due to open. Lawyer and human rights activist Radhia Nasrawi said, “There was no concrete evidence to back up the charge, apart from an unsigned medical certificate which has no legal standing. A number of witnesses would have been able to testify that no assault was committed during this conference in 2002,” she added. Reporters Without Borders condemned a “mockery of a trial” in which a lawyer was found guilty of posting “false news” on the Internet and urged democratic countries to boycott the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis in November 2005 unless Tunisia ended its Internet crackdown and released him. last_img read more

Gunmen open fire inside Tamil newspaper, killing two employees

first_img News News Sri LankaAsia – Pacific News Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge Receive email alerts July 29, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the murder of two employees in a shooting attack on the Tamil-language daily newspaper Uthayan in the northern city of Jaffna on 2 May, a day after it carried a cartoon of pro-government Tamil leader Douglas Devananda of the Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP).“We appeal to the authorities to carry out an investigation that quickly leads to the arrest of those responsible,” Reporters Without Borders. “Suspicion once again falls on the EPDP, which is known for using intimidation and violence. As this attack followed the publication of a cartoon of Devananda, we urge the police to question the EPDP’s leaders as part of their enquiries.”The attack occurred as dozens of news media representatives were gathering in Colombo to mark World Press Freedom Day the following day. Five gunmen burst in Uthayan’s offices in Jaffna and demanded to see deputy editor R. Kuhanathan. Once learning he was not there, they opened fire on staff and equipment.Marketing manager Suresh Kumar, 35, and another employee, Ranjith Kumar, 28, were shot dead. Two others sustained bullet wounds and several computers were destroyed. Uthayan has already been the target of militia attacks in the past.Reporters Without Borders also condemned the failure to identify and punish those responsible for the murders of other journalists such as Mayilvaganam Nimalarajan, a contributor to the BBC and several Sri Lankan media, and Dharmeratnam Sivaram, the editor of the Tamilnet news website and a columnist for the Sri Lankan Daily Mirror newspaper.A Reporters Without Borders representative who went to Sri Lanka for World Press Freedom Day spoke to many journalists in Jaffna who said they were constantly being threatened because of their work and lived in fear.

Ricardo investiert in Wasserstoffentwicklungs- und Testanlage und ebnet damit den Weg für nachhaltiges Transportwesen

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – January 27, 2021 Pinterest Twitter TAGS  WhatsApp Pinterestcenter_img Ricardo investiert in Wasserstoffentwicklungs- und Testanlage und ebnet damit den Weg für nachhaltiges Transportwesen Facebook SHOREHAM-BY-SEA, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 28, 2021– Im Rahmen seiner Mission der Entkarbonisierung des weltweiten Transport- und Energiesektors kündigte Ricardo, ein erstklassiges Beratungsunternehmen zu Umweltfragen, Technik und Strategie, heute eine erste Investition in Höhe von 2,5 Millionen britischen Pfund an, die für den Bau einer Wasserstoffentwicklungs- und Testanlage an seinem Shoreham Technical Centre in Großbritannien verwendet werden soll. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210127006089/de/ Hydrogen-fuel cell (Photo: Business Wire) Die neue Anlage soll die bestehende Tätigkeit des Unternehmens in den Bereichen Wasserstoff, Brennstoffzellen und umweltschonende alternative Kraftstoffe unterstützen und modernste Test- und Entwicklungsfähigkeiten bereitstellen, um die Einsatzmöglichkeiten von alternativen Kraftstoffen und Elektrofahrzeugen zu verbessern. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei eine erheblich gesteigerte Reichweite von Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzelldiensten und -lösungen, die den Kunden von Ricardo weltweit geliefert werden können. Steve Dyke, Managing Director von Ricardo Automotive and Industrial, sagte dazu: „Wir arbeiten bereits mit einer Reihe von Kunden im Bereich der Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzelltechnik zusammen, um saubere, effiziente Lösungen hervorzubringen, die Kohlenstoff- und giftige Emissionen in vielfältigen Sektoren verringern. Durch den Ausbau unserer Fähigkeiten bei Wasserstoff-Brennstoffzellen und Antrieben verbessern wir unsere Anlagen und Technologie für saubere Fahrzeuge in allen Transportbereichen. Dazu dehnen wir die Reichweite von Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzelldiensten und -lösungen aus, die wir unseren Kunden anbieten können.“ „Ein Fokus der neuen Anlage liegt speziell auf einem systemorientierten Ansatz der Fahrzeugentwicklung, bei dem unsere verbesserten Testfähigkeiten mit unseren hochmodernen digitalen und Simulierungs-Tools integriert werden, damit wir unseren Kunden vollumfänglich optimierte Hardware- und Software-Systemlösungen bereitstellen können. Auf diese Weise wird unsere bestehende Expertise mit digitaler Technik weiter verbessert, so dass das Unternehmen Lösungen anbieten kann, die grüner sind, weil sie weniger Energie und Ressourcen verbrauchen, die die Entwicklung durch effizientere, schnellere digitale Verfahren risikoärmer gestalten und die die Kosten reduzieren und die Markteinführungszeiten verkürzen und auf diese Weise einen Wettbewerbsvorteil erzeugen“, ergänzte Dyke. Diese Investition bedeutet eine erneute Steigerung der Fähigkeiten von Ricardo im Wasserstoffbereich, nachdem das Unternehmen am 14. Januar 2021 eine Zusammenarbeit mit AFC Energy plc angekündigt hat, mit der neue und innovative alternative Kraftstofflösungen ermittelt werden sollen, darunter auch Anwendungen mit Wasserstoffkraft. Derart leistungsstarke Testanlagen für Brennstoffzellen zur Entwicklung und Prüfung von Wasserstofftechnik sind auf der ganzen Welt selten. Darum wird Ricardo mit dieser Investition seine Führungsstellung im Bereich der Wasserstofftransporttechnik beschleunigt weiter ausbauen.
