In many cases they offer generous dividend yields, as well as the potential to generate capital growth.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…With that in mind, here are two large-cap shares that could be worth buying today alongside a diverse portfolio of stocks.Standard Life AberdeenThe Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) share price has made strong gains in recent months. For example, it has risen by 7% in the past three months, with investor sentiment seemingly improving as the business delivers on its strategy.Its recent results showed progress is being made in growing its presence in the wealth advisory segment and in developing its range of funds. It is also making cost reductions across its business, which could improve its competitive position.The rise in Standard Life Aberdeen’s share price means that it now has a dividend yield of 7%. Furthermore, the affordability of its dividend could improve since the company is forecast to post a rise in its net profit of 4% in the current year and 10% next year.As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business. Certainly, its progress is heavily linked to the outlook for the wider economy. But its high dividend yield and the progress it is making in implementing its strategy suggest that its risk/reward ratio is favourable for income-seeking investors at the present time.BHPAnother high-yielding FTSE 100 share is diversified mining business BHP (LSE: BHP). Its share price has also risen in the last three months, with the continued growth potential of the world economy providing a buoyant industry outlook for mining businesses.With the US and China having signed a ‘phase one’ trade deal, the prospects for the world economy could gradually improve. However, with tariffs remaining on $360bn of Chinese exports and $110bn of US exports for the time being, the trade war is clearly far from over. As such, investor sentiment towards global mining companies could be highly changeable in the short run.BHP’s diverse range of operations and its strong balance sheet mean that it is potentially less risky than other resources companies. However, it is still highly dependent on commodity prices, and may therefore offer a relatively volatile outlook for investors.With a dividend yield of 5.7%, it appears to offer good value for money. Investors seem to have factored in the potential risks that the company faces, which may mean that its risk/reward opportunity is attractive. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business for the long term. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Should I buy Coinbase shares at the current price?

first_imgShould I buy Coinbase shares at the current price? I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Image source: Getty Images Since its IPO just over two months ago, the Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN) share price has fallen 30%. It is no secret that the crypto market has taken off since the turn of 2021, and this is reinforced by Bitcoin’s April all-time high of $63,000. Although volatile, the crypto market has boomed the past six months. So why are Coinbase shares continuing to fall? Let’s take a closer look.Bull caseFirst, let’s look at the positives. Clearly, the crypto market has gained popularity with some investors. In fact, 14% of all US adults own crypto in some form. With total users currently at 56m, the potential market for Coinbase to expand and grow into is evident.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…To add to this, Coinbase’s latest first quarter results provide positive signs. Revenues were £1.8bn, up from $585 in the previous quarter. Trading volume was also up, at $335bn, having sat at $89bn in Q4 of 2020. This is especially relevant for Coinbase, as roughly 90% of its revenues come from transaction fees. This means that the large amounts of volatility the crypto market can produce may not necessarily impact Coinbase negatively, as it makes money from people both buying and selling, via fees. This is a real boost for Coinbase shares.Although many people continue to disregard the crypto market, many also seem to be endorsing it. Back in May, I looked at how the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust diversified into the world of crypto with a £72m investment. Confidence from large operations such as SMT could have a real effect on investor confidence, positively impacting Coinbase shares.Bear caseWith this said, I do have my concerns. All the above is dependent on the fact the cryptocurrency market is here to stay. With BTC currently trading at $39,000, 38% lower than its April high, the signs do not look encouraging. The volatility the market has continued to produce makes investors wary to make the leap and invest, which does not bode well for the future Coinbase share price. This was most noticeably seen with Elon Musk and his tweet regarding Tesla halting BTC as payment for its vehicles, which saw a more than 10% fall in the BTC price.Another issue is the stock’s valuation. With a market capitalisation of $59bn and a rather high valuation, are Coinbase shares overpriced and destined to continue to fall?My verdict on Coinbase sharesProvided the crypto market is here to stay, Coinbase offers huge opportunities, in my opinion. I would have expected the positive Q1 results to have boosted the share price, but the bearish outlook on the crypto market seems to have outweighed them.I see the volatile market as a real stumbling block for me taking the leap and investing in Coinbase shares, and I can see the share price falling even further. Ultimately, I am going to keep Coinbase on my watchlist until the crypto market can prove it is more stable. 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.

Portland, Oregon: ‘Stop separating families!’

first_imgHundreds of angry protesters demonstrated and marched in front of the Portland, Ore., Immigration and Customs Enforcement center on June 17, Father’s Day. A Syrian woman whose parents immigrated to the U.S. shouted, “Stop separating families!” She denounced ICE for tearing immigrant children from their parents, locking them in cages and shipping their parents hundreds of miles away to sit in prisons — just for seeking asylum. She told of one father who committed suicide after his daughter was brutally ripped from his arms.Organizer Juan Rogel, 16 years old when his family came to the U.S., said: “It’s psychological trauma. You are always missing something. You miss your parents, your family. You miss your culture. You feel like you don’t belong, but at the same time, it’s where you belong.” Protesters plan to drive over 60 miles to a federal prison in Sheridan, Ore., to denounce the horrendous treatment of more than 100 ICE detainees there.WW photo: Lyn NeeleyFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Justice for John Neville

first_imgAug. 5 protest after video of John Neville’s death is made public, Greensboro, N.C.On Aug. 21, the newly formed Triad Abolition Project began the 38th consecutive day of direct action against Forsyth County’s killer jail in Winston-Salem, N.C. The Project was formed earlier this year to demand justice in the case of John Neville, who was murdered by jailers in December 2019. The county sheriff kept the news from the public for months.Neville’s autopsy found that he died of cardiac arrest and a brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen. Video obtained by the Project shows Neville saying over 20 times that he could not breathe. Following the protests outside the jail, five guards and a jail nurse were charged with felony manslaughter.The jailers are exempt from state regulations barring what they call “prone restraint,” which is more accurately described as hog-tying because it is so frequently deadly. This is not the first death by hog-tying in Forsyth County; also within the N.C. Triad area, Marcus Smith was murdered by Greensboro police officers using the same technique in 2018. “Facedown restraint, called prone restraint, is lethal and must be prohibited in all N.C. jails,” said Susan Pollitt, attorney at Disability Rights North Carolina.While the Project has forced the district attorney to charge those responsible for Neville’s death, neither the sheriff nor the DA have made policy changes. Both the sheriff and local police got increased funding in 2020 in the midst of national economic collapse and the shuttering of many social programs.The 38-day encampment in Winston-Salem went up following a successful encampment action at the governor’s mansion in Raleigh in early July, which ended when the governor vetoed a bill to prevent the publicizing of autopsy reports from in-custody deaths such as Neville’s. Dozens of demonstrators with the Project face charges for participating in the action. Currently the Project’s demands of the Sheriff and District Attorney are: Respond to all questions: “Why are you covering up a murder?” Ban the use of the prone restraint (hog-tie) on any civilian, incarcerated or not, sick or not. Make relevant policy changes in the Forsyth County Department of Corrections (FCDC) around protocol for inmates in medical distress. Notify the public of any death involving an officer or deputy immediately. Make relevant policy changes around transparency and accountability in deaths of citizens in custody of the county (including in FCDC and other guardianship situations). Dismiss all charges against arrested, peaceful protesters. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Rhode Island reverses order to make only New York visitors self-quarantine after Cuomo threatens lawsuit

first_imgiStock(NEW YORK) — A political battle between Rhode Island and New York’s top leaders over new coronavirus precautions ended this weekend after Gov. Gina Raimondo changed her executive order that mandated New Yorkers who traveled to her state be quarantined, regardless of symptoms.Gov. Andrew Cuomo threatened lawsuits against Raimondo’s March 27 order, which issued fines and other penalties for New Yorkers that violated the rule. Rhode Island officers and state troopers were out flagging cars with New York plates at the state border during the earlier part of the weekend, which prompted Cuomo to call his fellow Democrat Raimondo on Saturday.“We had a conversation. I don’t think the order was called for, I don’t think it was legal, I don’t think it was neighborly,” Cuomo said during his daily briefing Sunday morning.Raimondo issued a new order Saturday night that repealed the quarantine mandate for New Yorkers and issued a quarantine order for “any person coming to Rhode Island by any mode of transportation after visiting another state for a non-work-related purpose.”Troopers and officers said they would now stop all out-of-state visitors and record their information if they were planning to stay in the state.Raimondo said Rhode Island initially focused on New York travelers, because it was the state with the most COVID-19 cases.“The rate of infection we are seeing in New York City, we are seeing it in other places,” she said at a news conference Sunday.Raimondo brushed aside any notion that she changed her executive order over Cuomo’s threat of a lawsuit.“He’s welcome to sue if he wants, I’m on firm legal ground,” she said.Cuomo said it was normal that people would act out of fear, but said New York would not take actions specifically targeted at its residents lightly.“New York has what it needs and no one is going to attack New York unfairly and no one is going to deprive New York of what it needs,” he said.

Oceanographic conditions beneath Ronne Ice Shelf: a comparison between model and field data

first_imgWithin the cavity beneath Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf (FRIS), High Salinity Shelf Water (HSSW) is transformed into Ice Shelf Water (ISW) by a combination of melting andfreezing at the ice shelf base and mixing within the water column. Evidence of these processes is abundant, both in the distribution of meteoric and marine ice in the ice shelfand in the properties of the water masses occupying the continental shelf. Quantitative information on the rate of water mass transformation is harder to come by, and moreelusive still are indications of the rate-controlling factors. Is the circulation primarily “pulled” by the injection of meltwater deep beneath the ice shelf, or “pushed” by the production of dense waters at the ice front? Are there dynamical constraints on the rateof exchange at the ice front? Answers to these questions are highly relevant to the problem of how sensitive the sub-ice cavities are to externally forced climatic change.During the mid 1990’s a series of instrument strings were deployed through FRIS, in and near to the Ronne Depression (Nicholls and Makinson, 1998). Temperature and currentrecords from the two sites within the depression showed a clear seasonality in the strength of the HSSW inflow; evidence of the importance of external forcing even deepwithin the cavity. The nature of the seasonal cycle, in particular the rapid increase in the HSSW flux associated with wintertime freezing north of the ice front, was furthersuggestive of some dynamical control on the inflow.In this paper we attempt to explain some of the key features of the seasonal signal using the results of a three-dimensional numerical model of ocean circulation within the FRIS cavity. We use a version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM) that we have adapted for sub-ice-shelf domains (Holland and Jenkins, in press). The domain we use in this study is identical to that described by Jenkins and Holland (2000).The forcing is also almost identical, except that we have slightly modified the mid-winter surface salinity (Figure 1) to reflect the lower salinities that are currently generated over Berkner Bank (Nlast_img read more
