Investing like Warren Buffett: I think these 2 ‘must own’ FTSE 100 shares are too cheap to miss

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 2020 has been a challenging year for FTSE 100 investors. Stocks of all varieties were sold off during the Covid-19 panic that sent people running the start of the year. It’s quite likely that things could get worse before they get better, too.On top of the worsening coronavirus crisis, the rising possibility of a hard Brexit, a messy aftermath of a fraught US presidential election, and fresh rounds of trade-related bickering between major global powers all threaten to push FTSE 100 share prices to the downside again.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…Keep the faith!I’m not fretting over the possibility of a new stock market crash, though. It’s important to remember that we investors don’t lose money when UK share prices fall. We only make a loss if we sell our shares at a cheaper price than what we originally buy it for. And as a long-term investor I’m confident that my Stocks and Shares ISA will recover in value during the inevitable economic recovery.In fact, I’ve continued to buy UK shares for my ISA despite the troubled economic landscape. I’ve followed the advice of legendary investor Warren Buffett who implores us to be “fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful”. That way I hope to make a large profit as the stocks I buy today rebound in value from their current lows, driven by improving economic conditions and recovering investor confidence.2 FTSE 100 firecrackers on my radarLet me talk you through a couple of the top-class FTSE 100 shares on my watchlist today. I think they’re too cheap to miss after tanking during the 2020 stock market crash:Aviva has dropped 33% in value in 2020. And right now it can be picked up on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 6 times. It’s a reading I think’s worth serious attention from long-term investors. The business has market-leading brands that will help profits to rebound strongly once economic conditions pick up. Meanwhile, the likely sale of its European and Asian assets will help the FTSE 100 firm in its plan to prioritise its major UK, Irish, and Canadian markets. It also underpins broker expectations of more chunky dividends – Aviva carries a 9.7% yield for 2020.I’d use the near-20% share price drop at DS Smith this year as a dip buying opportunity too. Like Aviva it offers plenty of all-round value for UK share investors. Alongside a forward P/E ratio of 12 times the packaging manufacturer sports a chubby 4.2% dividend yield. There are a few reasons I own the business in my ISA and am thinking of buying more following the recent price drop. It’s a brilliant play on the fast-growing emerging markets of Eastern Europe. The FTSE 100 firm’s recent expansion into the US has boosted its long-term earnings outlook even further. And I like the brilliant sales possibilities that the exploding e-commerce sector offers.

Rugby’s Greatest: George Gregan

first_img Eddie Jones calls the Wallaby flanker the greatest… Expand Rugby’s Greatest: George GreganIn the dying seconds of the deciding Test against Australia in Sydney 15 years ago, the Lions still had a shot of snatching the series. Though 29-23 down, they had possession and were stretching their opponents. Then a pass went loose. Wallaby wing Andrew Walker scooped it up and walked over the touchline to end the game.George Gregan stood just metres away. The diminutive scrum-half had played every minute of three high-octane encounters. He mimed a pistol with the first two fingers on his right hand, held the imaginary gun to his lips and blew the imaginary smoke away.Similarly spiky bravado surfaced two years later in the same stadium. Australia led New Zealand 22-10. Sure of a spot in the World Cup final, they were awarded a breakdown penalty. Leaning over the ruck, captain Gregan delivered the immortal sledge: “Four more years, boys. Four more years.”Defeat to England meant the Wallabies didn’t defend the crown they had taken in 1999 after beating France in the final in Cardiff. By then though, Gregan was well ensconced as his nation’s talisman.Back in 1994, just four matches into a 139-cap international career, the then-21 year-old wrote himself into Bledisloe Cup legend with a stunning try-saving tackle on All Black wing Jeff Wilson. Australia triumphed 20-16.

Photo: Paul Lebens-Englund[Episcopal News Service] When George Floyd was killed on May 25 a year ago by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, many Episcopalians and clergy in Minnesota’s Twin Cities took to the streets and joined crowds expressing outrage and calling for an end to racial injustice locally and nationally. They protested, attended vigils, prayed for peace and helped clean up the neighborhoods damaged by days of unrest.For the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, it also was a call to look inward, said Bishop Craig Loya, who was consecrated and took over leadership of the diocese on June 6, 2020, barely a week after Chauvin killed Floyd by kneeling on his neck for over nine minutes.Chauvin was fired along with three other officers, and last month he was convicted of murder and manslaughter. The work of healing, however, continues in the Twin Cities and its churches, Loya said, as the diocese confronts its own historic complicity with racist systems – and the racism still embedded today in American institutions, from police forces to churches, including The Episcopal Church and its congregations.“It would be hard to overstate the trauma that the murder of George Floyd caused in the city of Minneapolis and beyond, and out of that trauma has come a real commitment to the long work of racial justice and healing,” Loya told Episcopal News Service in a phone interview last week as he and the wider church prepared to mark one year since Floyd’s death.Loya and several other Episcopal bishops organized a virtual memorial service for Floyd scheduled to air at 8 p.m. EDT May 25 on Facebook. The other diocesan leaders are Missouri Bishop Deon Johnson, Michigan Bishop Bonnie Perry, Indianapolis Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Washington Bishop Mariann Budde and Colorado Bishop Kym Lucas. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry also is participating. The Episcopal Public Policy Network, meanwhile, issued an action alert on May 25 asking members to press Congress to pass the policing reforms contained in the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.Episcopal Public Policy Network: Urge Congress to Enact Police ReformLast year, in response to a series of killings of African Americans by police and white vigilantes, The Episcopal Church awarded “rapid response” grants up to $10,000 to 33 ministries in dioceses across the church as part of the Becoming Beloved Community framework, its cornerstone racial reconciliation initiative. Executive Council, citing the police killings of Floyd in Minneapolis and Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, also approved $150,000 each for the dioceses of Minnesota and Kentucky to “support their continuing work of dismantling the systemic racism we have created in this country and still permeates our church and society.”Minnesota is investing the money it received in its local Episcopal Service Corps chapter, a new diocesan worshipping community, a partnership with a new Twin Cities community organization and a new curriculum for anti-racism training specific to the state. Loya described these as “small immediate actions” that will grow into a more comprehensive plan for long-term reconciliation work.“I was ordained as bishop of Minnesota about a week after George Floyd was murdered, in a cathedral that is not far from the place where he was murdered,” Loya said. “It was clear to me in those days that the work of racial justice and healing would need to be a central part of my work as bishop.”Episcopalians and leaders across The Episcopal Church amplified the call to that work in the days and weeks after Floyd’s killing, and on April 20, after a jury convicted Chauvin, Curry joined Loya in a virtual Compline service and thanked Minnesota Episcopalians for their dedication to the cause of justice.“You have been faithful through this journey, and many of you have marched and virtually all of you have prayed and you have stayed the course,” the presiding bishop said. “There is work yet to be done.”Loya told ENS his diocese is following the four-part framework outlined in Becoming Beloved Community, which the church launched in 2017 as a resource for deepening conversations about the church’s historic complicity with slavery, segregation and racism.Before Floyd’s death, the Episcopal Church in Minnesota had provided resources for its own congregations and parishioners to engage in conversations centered on Becoming Beloved Community, and in January 2018, church leaders relocated the diocesan offices to a building in an economically depressed neighborhood on the north side of Minneapolis, which diocesan leaders said moved the church closer to the communities it was called to serve.To the south, in downtown Minneapolis, the diocese allowed the fledgling community organization Twin Cities Stand Together to move into the former building of Gethsemane Episcopal Church, a congregation that had disbanded in 2019. Twin Cities Stand Together now is using the church as a base for clothing, food and toy drives, with plans to turn its basement into a charity shop for families who are struggling economically. During Chauvin’s murder trial last month, Twin Cities Stand Together offered space in the church as a staging ground for Visual Black Justice, an arts and advocacy organization whose works were displayed around the courthouse.The diocese provided $65,000 to help Twin Cities Stand Together get started, and with additional financial and volunteer support from the diocese, the organization’s future plans include a youth basketball program based in the church’s gym. “They’re doing extraordinary work,” Loya said, “building lots of partnerships in that neighborhood.”The diocese’s new worshipping community, Transfiguration Minneapolis, is intended as a haven for people of color, members of the LGBTQ community and others who historically have felt excluded from The Episcopal Church. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Transfiguration’s first worship services were held online in January, and plans for in-person services are in the works.“We also have a number of [existing] local congregations that are engaging this work in some really beautiful ways,” Loya said, and he singled out St. John’s Episcopal Church in Minneapolis’ Linden Hills neighborhood for moving racial reconciliation to the center of the congregation’s mission.Last fall, St. John’s formed a Racial Justice and Healing Steering Committee to guide the congregation in carrying out plans to pray, learn, act and connect. “We have come to the inescapable conviction that faithfully following Jesus in our time means to center the work of racial healing and justice in our church,” the congregation said in outlining those plans on its website.Circle of the Beloved, an Episcopal Service Corps chapter in Minneapolis, will use money from the diocese’s racial reconciliation grant to maintain ongoing support for nonprofits in the Twin Cities. And the diocese, to develop a new anti-racism curriculum, is consulting with Catherine Meeks, executive director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, and Heidi Kim, The Episcopal Church’s former racial reconciliation officer who now serves as a program director at an Episcopal school in the Twin Cities.Loya also noted the diocese’s involvement with the Minnesota Council of Churches, which launched a 10-year Truth & Reparations initiative in October 2020. The program’s goal is “dismantling the structures and repairing the damage of racism in Minnesota,” dating back centuries to the dehumanization of Indigenous peoples and African slaves by European colonists.In the Book of Common Prayer, the catechism calls on all Episcopalians “to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world,” and Loya said this is a ministry for all Christians. “The call to racial justice and healing is grounded in the good news of Jesus Christ,” he said. “Anyone who is a follower of Jesus is called to be engaged in the work of racial justice and healing.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Can Manuel d’en Corda is located on a plot of 19,060 m2 of rustic nature in the area of the Venda des Cap de Barbaria, in the west of the island of Formentera. The most significant pre-existing conditions, which have been maintained and enhanced through the project, are a small forest of pines and junipers located in the west area of the estate and the old house Can Manuel de’n Corda, which reflects the scheme type of the domestic vernacular architecture developed in Formentera between the late eighteenth and mid nineteenth century. The volume of the main body with simple pitched roof gable and southeast orientation, and its roots in the landscape through the tradicional dry stone walls, highlight the link between this type of building with the farms next to which they were located.Save this picture!© Estudi Es Pujol de s’EraThe extensive briefing for the project has been arranged so that while exhaust the urban parameters allowed by the current planning, it distorts as little as possible the existing house and, simultaneously, has its volume so that it has less presence possible from the immediate fragile environment. This has been possible through the use of a fragmented volumes available on ground floor in non-orthogonal disposition, offsetting in midsection plant about the level of the existing house,and adapted to the topography as well as keeping intact the facades characteristics of this architectural style ( southeast and northwest facades, where they were all original openings). This will resort to the ends that were originally blind (northeast and southwest facades) for connections to pieces of new creation, and to realize the new openings that allow better use of natural light.Save this picture!© Estudi Es Pujol de s’EraAlthough it has been maintained the original main entrance of the house with its southeast orientation, at a strategic level the new house turns its back on the road which limit with the plot by the East side. Thus the extension of the home overlooks enjoys the best views to the northwest, which overlooks the island of Es Vedra, an iconic element of the southern skyline of the neighboring island of Ibiza.Save this picture!© Estudi Es Pujol de s’EraIn the original house have been maintained the common areas (living, dining, kitchen and terraces), while on the ground floor of the expansion have been concentrated the bedrooms and service rooms (laundry, cellar, pantry , etc…) and technical premises on the basement.Save this picture!© Estudi Es Pujol de s’EraOf the expansion volumen are relevant the wiews that cross the building through the interstices between the different orthogonal geometric modules that contains the 4 rooms with bath of the ground floor. Of these gaps the most important is the transparency that exists in the contact between the extension and the existing house. This subtle touch helps to clarify the limits of each building.Save this picture!© Estudi Es Pujol de s’EraThe above mentiones transversal interstices are reproduced in the basement, creating courtyards that provide light and ventilation and that give warmth to the rooms below while transforming the way they relate to the environment.Save this picture!© Estudi Es Pujol de s’EraThe flat roof of the extension is feasible in one lookout-solarium area accesible from an external staircase.Save this picture!© Estudi Es Pujol de s’EraAs for the materials used, the proposal has been formalized with a limited palette of materials.

TCU previously had a hybrid cable system with DirecTV and PhiloTV, who provided a cable streaming service.“Generally, when we move to a new service, it’s either for cost-saving purposes, to unify those services under a single carrier, or they’re offering new features that we’ve never had before,” said Joshua Tooley, the director of IT support.This semester’s cable provider, Spectrum, has a streaming service called SpectrumU.Tooley said Spectrum offers students the possibility of watching cable anywhere on campus and a more diverse channel lineup than they had before.In recent years, with advances in streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, many students don’t use the cable system. Some students reported not being able to watch cable in their lobbies and study rooms.“Some areas have reported issues,” Tooley said. “Normally, scanning for channels fixes them [the issues].”The raised concerns caused the IT department to reach out to Housing & Residence Life to ask hall directors to rescan for channels in the common areas of their halls, allowing students to watch cable.Tiffany Nguyen, a junior living in Richards Hall, noticed the cable signal was not working in her hall but didn’t know TCU had changed cable providers.Sierra Cole, a sophomore living in Tom Brown/Pete Wright apartments, said she had not attempted to watch cable since coming back to campus.When told about the new carrier and asked whether she planned on using it any time soon, Cole said, “Potentially, if it’s something easy to set up, because we already have Netflix and Hulu.”Tooley said this generation’s shift toward online streaming, along with the COVID-19 pandemic, has contributed to students being uninformed about issues regarding cable in their residence halls.According to data provided by Spectrum, 71% of college students watch TV online. However, transitioning to solely online cable service is not something being considered, according to Tooley.“I would consider this change a stepping stone to where the future might lead,” said Tooley. “But now students have a choice on what they use going forward, and I think the usage of these tools is going to help us predict what we do in the future.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Andre Giammatteihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/andre-giammattei/last_img read more
