Buying UK shares? I’d start here!

first_imgBuying UK shares? I’d start here! See all posts by T Sligo Buying UK shares can feel like navigating a minefield at the moment. Businesses and whole industries have been impacted by the pandemic in ways that were once unimaginable.However, for the prudent investor, now could be a great time to buy UK shares. The FTSE 100 has fallen by 18% in the year-to-date. Therefore, I believe it is possible to buy shares in quality companies that should benefit from the economy’s likely recovery.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…Here’s where I’d start.Investing with smaller sumsIf you’re investing with smaller sums, you might struggle to build a well-diversified portfolio.Diversification is especially important at the moment when it’s difficult to predict how different businesses will react to the coronavirus after-effects.Although it’s difficult for investors to build up a diversified portfolio with small sums, it can be done by investing in an index fund. Index funds aim to track the performance of a chosen market. UK investors could buy shares in a fund that tracks the FTSE 100, for example. You can usually do so with a modest lump sum, such as £100. This will create diversification with ease. If you invest at regular intervals, you can take advantage of the markets cycles by pound-cost-averaging. This means your money would be invested at both the high and low points of a market cycle.Although I think index fund investing is a great way to buy shares with low sums, to supercharge your returns, it might be best to buy individual shares.A great UK share to buy?When I think of great UK shares, there is always one company that springs to mind. That company is Unilever (LSE: ULVR), with fantastic brands in its portfolio such as Marmite, Ben & Jerry’s and Lynx.The reason why I rate Unilever shares so highly is due to the low-cost nature of its products. When times are tough, I’m convinced that people will still be purchasing these goods.This brand loyalty also offers Unilever another benefit. The company can nudge up the prices of its goods, improving profit.In its latest results, released in July, the company reported that underlying sales fell by 0.1% in the six months to the end of June. Although this might sound disappointing, it was better than the market predicted. The disruption from the closure of restaurants, cinemas and pubs was offset by a surge in sales of goods that can be consumed at home.As fellow-Fool Paul Summers notes, performance in North America was a highlight for Unilever, with underlying sales growth in the region hitting 9.5% in Q2 With its better-than-expected results, I was a bit surprised to see that its price-to-earnings ratio is just under 20, even though its share price has jumped by roughly 5% in the year-to-date. For that reason, I believe that right now offers a chance to buy shares in this great UK company at an irresistible price. T Sligo has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The client followed an inherited custodial intention to construct a new building with a strong presence in the centre of the rural town of Schwaikheim, close to Stuttgart. The materiality of wood was an obvious starting point, not only in terms of sustainability and natural resources, but also as a reference to the original training of the client as a carpenter. Out of this came a brief for 6 contemporary apartments and a workshop for the continuing practice as a craftsman.Save this picture!© Zooey BraunThe three-storey timber apartment building and the workshop stand on a connecting massive base, which mediates the height difference and slope of the existing ground plane towards the garden.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!First floor planTwo identical gable profiles, but with different heights and lengths are placed in relation to each other so that a workshop yard is created to act as both collective foreground and an extension of the streetscape.

Pandemia ha acelerado etapa final del capitalismo — ¡El resto depende de nosotros! – un análisis

first_imgLa semana pasada, los trabajadores celebraron el Día Internacional de los Trabajadores 2020. No ha habido otro momento en nuestras vidas en que el mensaje del Primero de Mayo, –la solidaridad global de los trabajadores en la lucha contra el capitalismo– haya sido más urgente. Hemos entrado en un período decisivo.Larry Holmes, Primero de Mayo seminario web de Partido Mundo Obrero.El alcance de la lucha de clase mundial que se dirige hacia nosotros requerirá más que solidaridad del movimiento de la clase trabajadora. Requerirá un nivel de coordinación entre organizaciones y movimientos de todo el mundo en la lucha contra el capitalismo que ni siquiera existía en los primeros años de la Tercera Internacional bajo el liderazgo de V.I. Lenin. Las condiciones y la tecnología han hecho posible lo que no era posible. Pero primero, aquellos de nosotros en los Estados Unidos, el centro del imperialismo mundial, tenemos nuestro trabajo listo para nosotros.La economía capitalista mundial, liderada por Estados Unidos, está cayendo rápidamente en una depresión. Es probable que sea más grave que cualquier depresión anterior en la historia del capitalismo, porque lo que está ocurriendo ahora es la implosión de un sistema en su etapa final. A pesar de lo asombrosa que es la pandemia de COVID-19 por sí sola, en realidad ha catalizado una colosal crisis capitalista mundial que se ha estado gestando durante mucho tiempo. Después de ser revivido hace 75 años por la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el capitalismo de EE. UU. durante el último medio siglo se ha estado deslizando hacia su etapa final. La globalización y el desarrollo de generaciones de tecnología, combinados con un asalto implacable a los niveles de vida de la clase trabajadora, no han logrado detener el declive del sistema.El capitalismo nunca se recuperó del colapso de los mercados financieros en 2008. Desde entonces, los mercados financieros han estado con soporte vital porque los bancos centrales les han inyectado billones (millones de millones) de dólares. Cuando las acciones estadounidenses casi colapsaron hace dos meses, la Reserva Federal hizo algo extraordinario. En cuestión de días, canalizó alrededor de $ 5 billones en los mercados financieros de EE. UU., aproximadamente una cuarta parte del producto interno bruto anual de EE. UU. Wall Street ahora está en lo que equivale a un respirador financiero.Antes de la pandemia, la economía global se había estancado en los Estados Unidos y se había contraído en otros lugares. Ahora, en todas partes, la economía se está contrayendo a un ritmo más rápido que durante la Gran Depresión.Aquellos de nosotros que hemos estado esperando ansiosamente el colapso del capitalismo debemos contener cualquier inclinación a alegrarnos. La pandemia de COVID-19 y su impacto en la economía capitalista han desatado un infierno en los trabajadores y oprimido en todas partes. Los trabajadores están muriendo por la pandemia y están perdiendo sus trabajos al mismo tiempo. La tasa de suicidios está creciendo, y seguirá creciendo en correlación directa con la creciente tasa de desempleo, desalojos, hambre, además de más enfermedades y muertes.El número real de trabajadores que acaban de perder sus empleos en los EE. UU. no es de 30 millones, sino más cerca de 50 millones, cuando se suman todos los trabajadores que no califican para beneficios de desempleo, como muchos trabajadores migrantes y grandes cifras de trabajadores despedidos que no pudieron acceder a sus sitios web estatales de desempleo porque tales sitios estaban demasiado ocupados o se habían estrellado. Eso significa que casi un tercio de la fuerza laboral de los Estados Unidos se ha quedado sin trabajo.La necesidad de los capitalistas de obligar a los trabajadores —aquellos que aún tienen sus trabajos— a regresar a sus puestos de trabajo podría hacer imposible el contener la pandemia porque la reactivación de la economía es lo que está ayudando a la recuperación del mercado de valores.Cuando la pandemia ya no sea el problema principal, la mayoría de los trabajos que se han perdido no volverán. Una de las cosas que alimenta una depresión capitalista es que el sistema depende de los trabajadores para comprar bienes y servicios. El desempleo a nivel de depresión significa que los trabajadores no podrán comprar las cosas que la sobreproducción capitalista debe tirar en el mercado para vender.Naturalmente, serán los trabajadores de color, aquellos que luchan por sobrevivir en condiciones normales, quienes sufrirán más. Debemos prepararnos para la devastación inimaginable que la pandemia y la crisis económica van a causar en los pueblos del Sur global. Pero los trabajadores que viven en los principales países imperialistas, aquellos que solían pensar que estaban bien, especialmente antes de la recesión de 2008, también se verán muy afectados por esta tormenta.Todos, excepto los ricos, exigirán el fin del capitalismoEste es el momento del juicio final. Para cualquier mente racional, es completamente incomprensible que en el país más rico del mundo, que tiene el beneficio del más alto nivel de desarrollo científico y tecnológico de la historia, y recursos virtualmente inagotables, sea de alguna manera incapaz de proteger a la sociedad de una pandemia mortal. No es solo la incompetencia de Trump. Los presidentes y políticos de los partidos demócrata y republicano apoyaron fielmente las medidas que destriparon la calidad de la atención médica disponible para los trabajadores y la población.Es por esta razón que no había suficientes camas de hospital, equipos de protección, respiradores y trabajadores de la salud para responder a la pandemia. Las medidas que hicieron que los hospitales no estuvieran completamente preparados para proteger a la gente fueron la consecuencia de una campaña de austeridad que los capitalistas emprendieron con la esperanza de rescatar su sistema inestable. Si los capitalistas son o no malvados no viene al caso.El problema fundamental es que los capitalistas no pueden hacer lo mejor para la sociedad porque no es de su interés hacerlo. Sus intereses están en acumular toda la riqueza que puedan, maximizar las ganancias, explotar la mano de obra y mantener su poder sobre la sociedad. Si los intereses de las personas fueran primarios, los trabajadores podrían quedarse en casa de manera segura sin temor a perder sus trabajos, si eso es lo que se necesita para detener una pandemia.No es la economía la que debe cerrarse, es el capitalismo. El capitalismo no puede protegernos de pandemias, ni del cambio climático, ni de todos los peligros que enfrentamos. Debido a esta crisis que cambia el mundo, más personas se darán cuenta de que el capitalismo es incompatible con las necesidades inmediatas de la sociedad, y que su continuación es una amenaza existencial para toda la vida en el planeta. Hasta que terminemos con el capitalismo, todos estaremos a merced de una pequeña – y cada vez más pequeña – clase de parásitos súper ricos.De ahora en adelante, el cambio del sistema debe ser el objetivo de la clase trabajadoraHemos llegado al punto en que ya no es útil exponer simplemente al capitalismo, o no tener un objetivo más allá de reformarlo. No puede ser reformado. Tiene que irse. Incluso si el capitalismo se desmorona y no puede recuperarse durante un largo período de tiempo, y si no se termina, con el tiempo suficiente, el capitalismo se reconstituirá a sí mismo. Apoyar la lucha por las necesidades inmediatas de los trabajadores es absolutamente esencial. No hay posibilidad de una lucha por el poder sin una lucha por las necesidades básicas de las masas populares.La lucha por el socialismo no debe verse como algo separado de la lucha por el derecho de todos a un trabajo o ingresos, atención médica universal, un aumento en el salario mínimo, detener los desalojos, y lo más importante, el derecho y la necesidad de que la clase trabajadora se organice en sí mismo como nunca antes.Marx y Engels ofrecieron una perspectiva revolucionaria al respecto en el “Manifiesto comunista”: “De vez en cuando los trabajadores salen victoriosos, pero solo por un tiempo. El verdadero fruto de sus batallas no radica en los resultados inmediatos, sino en la unión cada vez mayor de trabajadores”.Cómo combinar efectivamente la lucha para terminar con el capitalismo y establecer el socialismo con las luchas cotidianas de los trabajadores se convertirá en el desafío central para todas las fuerzas revolucionarias.Hacer frente a este desafío requerirá extraer lecciones de la historia y determinar cómo las lecciones pasadas son aplicables a las condiciones de hoy. Esto no será fácil. Será un proceso que implicará errores y contratiempos, así como también victorias.Pero no tenemos otra opción que embarcarnos en el camino que conduce a la revolución. El capitalismo no solo desaparecerá. Debe ser terminado. No podemos predecir con certeza el momento preciso en que una situación revolucionaria real estará a la mano en los Estados Unidos. Eso dependerá de muchas cosas, incluida la preparación de la clase trabajadora, la única clase lo suficientemente grande y poderosa como para acabar con el capitalismo. Pero podemos decir que los eventos de hoy están abriendo caminos a la revolución que no existía hace poco tiempo.La próxima parte: ¿Qué hará la clase dirigente?; ¿que hará la clase obrera?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

State of Madhya Pradesh, it was held that the imposition of cash security or deposit of any amount for grant of bail is unjust, irregular and improper.The Sessions Judge while granting bail to the petitioner had directed him to deposit an amount of Rs 25,000/- towards Corona Relief Fund and produce the receipt before the said Court. The petitioner, aggrieved by this, moved the High Court, arguing that the condition is onerous. He relied on the aforesaid decision, wherein the High Court has held that the courts while granting bail shall not direct the accused to make any cash deposit.”It is trite law that the grant of bail is a rule and that jail is only an exception. Undisputedly, the petitioner had applied and was granted bail under Sec.167(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, which is his indefeasible right”, observed the Justice C S Dias.”In view of the above categoric declaration of law(Moti Ram), I find that Condition No.2 imposed by the learned Sessions Judge, that the petitioner should deposit an amount of Rs 25,000/- towards the Corona Relief Fund is improper and unjust. Hence, I quash the said condition”, the judge ordered. It may be noted that the Jharkhand High Court that had last week allowed an anticipatory bail application subject to payment of Rs. 10,000 towards the Prime Minister Citizens Assistant Relief in Emergency Situation (PM CARES) Fund. []Further, the same High Court had even granted bail to a former Member of Parliament and five others on the condition that they should deposit an amount of Rs 35,000 each in Prime Minister Citizens Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) and show proof of payment before the court. The Madhya Pradesh HC has also imposed the condition of donation to PM CARES fund for grant of bail.  Case DetailsTitle : Chinna Rao Swayamvarappu v State of KeralaCase No : Crl MC (TMP) No. 5 of 2020Bench     : Justice C S DiasAppearances : Advocate Sri Rajit for petitioner; Public Prosecutor Smt.Sreeja.V.Click here to download orderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more
