Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Image source: BAE Systems Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. In my opinion, few investments offer the same kind of long-term potential as the BAE (LSE: BA) share price. The company benefits from several unique qualities of the defence industry. These could help it produce sustainable profits and high total returns for investors for many decades to come. 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…BAE share price tailwinds The defence industry is highly regulated and controlled. It’s also very specialised. Companies need a licence to set up as a weapons manufacturer. They also need a lot of initial capital and, perhaps more importantly, they need unique products. Developing these products can be incredibly expensive. For example, the F-35, the Western world’s most advanced fighter jet, cost over $1trn to develop. Private enterprises cannot fund these projects by themselves, so they rely on government assistance. This means projects are only available to approved suppliers, and suppliers who already have a relationship with policymakers. BAE has the advantage here. The company’s most important shareholder is the UK government. The government only owns one share, worth £1, but this so-called Golden Share gives the state almost complete control over the future of the business. This is just one of the competitive advantages that have led me to BAE shares. The business also has access to extremely valuable tech knowhow and highly developed supply chains. On top of these competitive advantages, the company has a large degree of revenue visibility. Contracts for defence equipment usually run for many years, and in some cases, decades. This gives the group the sort of income stability other firms can only dream of, which can certainly help the BAE share price. Top investment Based on the reasons above, I think the share is an attractive long-term investment. And now could be the perfect time to buy it, while the stock trades at a depressed level. Indeed, right now, shares in the defence contractor are changing hands at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 12. That’s compared to the long-term average of around 15. I think the company’s dividend yield is even more attractive. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 4.6%. For the reasons outlined above, I believe this is one of the most secure dividends in the FTSE 100. Even though BAE paused the payout earlier in the year due to the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, it was one of the first blue-chip businesses to restart its distribution to shareholders.The company’s long-term contracts with financially secure counterparties (such as the UK government) support this distribution and suggest that the business is unlikely to have to reduce the payout materially in the medium term. The BAE share price also has a strong track record of dividend growth. The payout has grown at a compound annual rate of 2.5% since 2014. Overall, I believe this company could be a great addition to my portfolio in 2021.last_img read more

first_img Monday morning quarterbackThere are road trips in high school football that typically involve a 5-10 mile drive to another school in central Florida… And then there are road trips.The Apopka Blue Darters traveled approximately 125 miles to St. John’s, FL (which is between St. Augustine and Jacksonville) to take on the Bartram Trail Bears – the state 7-A runner-up in 2017. The Wekiva Mustangs went even further, to the outskirts of Atlanta – some 450 miles from Apopka – to take on the Georgia state champion North Gwinnett Bulldogs in the finale of the Freedom Bowl.Both Apopka and Wekiva prevailed in impressive fashion against two state-ranked programs on the road. The Blue Darters held on to defeat the Bears 33-28, while the Mustangs beat the Bulldogs 28-14.Apopka 33, Bartram Trail 28It looked like a track meet more than a football game at times.The Apopka Blue Darters, ranked fourth in the latest AP state 8-A poll, ran wild against the Bartram Trail Bears, with three different rushers going over 150 yards and four different runners scoring touchdowns as Apopka took a 26-14 halftime lead on an astounding 391 rushing yards, and then held on to defeat the Bears 33-28 to give the Blue Darters a 2-0 record for the season.Jecoryan Davis-Hamilton led all rushers with 192 yards and a touchdown, followed by Cornelius Williams with 181 yards and a touchdown, Akeem Brown with 150 yards, while Eric Wright had two touchdown runs. In all Apopka had 613 rushing yards and five touchdown runs.The Blue Darters return home this Friday to face the Lakeland Dreadnaughts, which is Blue Darter Head Coach Rick Darlington’s alma mater. Lakeland is also 2-0 on the season and defeated the Blue Darters in Lakeland 42-35 last season.Wekiva 28, North Gwinnett 14A Georgia newspaper described the Wekiva Mustang defense as “wicked” in a preview article about the Freedom Bowl, and that was certainly how they played against the North Gwinnett Bulldogs.For the second straight week, the Mustangs wreaked havoc with its opponent’s offense, forcing five fumbles, two interceptions, four turnovers, allowing only 37 rushing yards and even scoring a touchdown in a 28-14 victory in the finale of the Freedom Bowl, which featured six games between high school powerhouses throughout the nation.Junior Wekiva running back Supreme Richardson ran for 114 yards, while the Mustangs do-it-all senior Brandon Hill scored all three Wekiva touchdowns on offense, and intercepted a pass on defense, as Wekiva improved its record to 2-0 on the year, and ranked first in the latest AP state 8-A poll.The Mustangs return home next Friday to take on the Winter Park Wildcats (2-0). The Blue Darters defeated the Wildcats 33-6 in the state playoffs last season.

first_img News SwitzerlandEurope – Central Asia April 29, 2020 Find out more Protecting media freedom and free speech when regulating digital platforms to go further June 26, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF), speaking to the meeting about freedom of expression and opinion, protested strongly about the presence of delegates from China, Iran, Burma, Vietnam, Cuba and Zimbabwe – countries where press freedom is abused and journalists regularly imprisoned. It also pointed out that some countries sitting on the Commission – Cuba, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia – had not signed or ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, whose Article 19 guarantees freedom of expression. “In those countries, the government gags the media with complete impunity, yet here in Geneva, they are called upon to pass judgement on other countries in matters of human rights,” the RSF representative said.Since the last meeting of the Commission, the press freedom situation in the world has deteriorated. The fight against terrorism, whatever its justification, has led to greater repression in dictatorships such as China but has also seen a reduction in basic freedoms, especially freedom of expression, in many democracies. Even in some European Union states, threats to diversity and freedom of information arose or increased.For all these reasons, RSF asked the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and Opinion to monitor the press freedom situation in democratic countries, especially the United States.RSF also deplored the absence of any resolutions condemning the human rights situation in countries such as Eritrea, where journalists face systematic repression.RSF deplored too the continuing impunity concerning attacks on journalists, notably in Israel and the Occupied Territories, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ukraine, Haiti and Colombia, and asked the Commission to press these government to stop hindering the legal punishment of these abuses.RSF also asked the Special Rapporteurs on Freedom of Expression and Opinion and on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions to pay special attention to investigations into the murders of journalists.In the present deteriorating state of freedom of expression, RSF called on the Commission to forthrightly condemn, without regard for short-term considerations, all countries that attacked press freedom.

The vast majority of these addresses were located in urban centres and on the east coast.More than half of the total new addresses were added in the Greater Dublin Area, with 7,319 (29.5 per cent) of these found in county Dublin.The report shows that 409 buildings were under construction in Limerick in June 2019. Nationally, 14,107 buildings were classified as under construction last month, a 52.5per cent increase on the same period last year.There were 2,055 residential property transactions in Limerick, in the twelve months to April 2019, with an average price of €199,659. 12.6 per cent of these were for new properties. Limerick city is the town with the highest average property price in the county.The report found that there were 52 derelict buildings in urban areas in Limerick.GeoDirectory chief executive Dara Keogh said the construction industry was rising to the challenge of demand for housing, but it is clear that there is still some way to go to reach the required level of supply.“With such low levels of construction activity outside of Leinster, this analysis shows that more still needs to be done to encourage more balanced regional development so as to attract talent to areas outside of the capital and achieve the ambitious objectives set out in the National Development Plan,” he explained.

first_img Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Tagged with: Coronavirus hurricane season Storms Hurricane season has officially begun, and with COVID-19 impacting everyone’s lives, CoreLogic looked into how the pandemic will affect this year’s hurricane season. CoreLogic identified the top 15 metros at risk of storm surge, including single- and multifamily residences, accounting for 68.8% of total reconstruction cost value of homes at risk of storm surge on the Gulf and Atlantic coasts in the United States.Three metros that rank high on the list – Miami, New York City and New Orleans – will be experiencing an increasing rate of mortgage nonpayment as a result of the financial ramifications of the pandemic. This raises additional concerns for response and recovery amidst the economic uncertainty in the season ahead.“If a hurricane causes significant storm surge damage during a time when mortgage delinquencies are already high, this could result in additional losses for homeowners, lenders and insurers – and ultimately, delay economic recovery for impacted communities,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic.More than 7 million properties face the risk of destruction from a storm surge this season, according to CoreLogic’s Storm Surge Report—a potential of $1.7 trillion in reconstruction costs for single-family homes and $95 billion for multi-family residences.These figures assume total destruction of all properties facing the threat of a storm surge in the worst-case scenario of a Category 5 hurricane in their area.The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says this hurricane season has a 60% chance of being “above-normal.”NOAA predicts between 13 and 19 named storms, between six and 10 hurricanes, and between three and six major hurricanes this year.“As Americans focus their attention on a safe and healthy reopening of our country, it remains critically important that we also remember to make the necessary preparations for the upcoming hurricane season,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, in an NOAA press release.CoreLogic specifically examines the property risks of potential storm surges in coastal communities across the nation because storm surges are often a major contributor to the property damage and displacement of residents during a hurricane.“While most people associate hurricanes with the wind, it is important to expect and prepare for the inevitable flooding since that is often responsible for considerable damage,” said Thomas Jeffery, Ph.D., Principal of Science and Analytics at CoreLogic.

first_img Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Jeremy Corbyn visits Derry and Strabane Homepage BannerNews Facebook Twitter Google+ Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has been welcomed to ‘the city at the heart of the Brexit conundrum’.That was how Derry was described by local Chamber President Jennifer Mc Keever, who opened a business breakfast in the city which Mr Corbyn attended this morning.Mr Corbyn then travelled to Strabane, to visit the Tyrone Donegal border.Opening the event in the City Hotel this morning, Ms McKeever outlined that 90% of the Chamber’s member companies would prefer to stay in both the EU Customs Union and Single Market.She told Mr Corbyn he was visiting a city region that sits on a border spanning two counties, two countries, two jurisdictions – and the local chamber members run businesses serving both.Every day, she said, thousands of us cross the border for work, for education, for health and for trade.Ms Mc Keever said for Derry, the EU is not a foreign, far-away bureaucracy – it’s a couple of miles from where we sit. It’s where many of our staff live and where we find our customers, and trading partners.Ms McKeever concluded that that since the Brexit referendum, local businesses have been “hugely resilient and pragmatic” about the challenges ahead, but told the Labour leader that two years later, patience is wearing thin.Photo caption: Bonnie Anley, Chair of Foyle Port, Londonderry Chamber of Commerce President Jennifer McKeever, Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn, Brian McGrath, CEO Foyle Port and Sinead McLaughlin, CEO Londonderry Chamber of Commerce at the City Hotel roof garden in Derry.****************************Chamber statement in full -Speaking at the event, Ms McKeever delivered a strong message on why 90% of the Chamber’s member companies would prefer to stay in both the EU Customs Union and Single Market.  “We are a city region that sits on a border spanning two counties, two countries, two jurisdictions – and we run businesses serving both. Every day, thousands of us cross the border for work, for education, for health and for trade.“The EU is not a foreign, far-away bureaucracy – it’s a couple of miles from where we sit. It’s where many of our staff live and where we find our customers, and trading partners.“Everybody accepts that it would be unacceptable to re-introduce a hard border in Ireland. What is infinitely more difficult to understand is how we can pull out of the Customs Union and Single Market without one.“The truth is we just cannot see how you can square this circle: To both leave the EU and to ensure no border – to create the unique solution for Northern Ireland and to do it without damaging our peace and prosperity.She told Mr Corbyn: “Membership of the Customs Union and Single Market has allowed freedom of goods, people, money and services across our border, and allows us access to a market of 500 million EU citizens. It’s under those conditions that we have built the business community that you are sitting with this morning.”Ms McKeever explained that since the Brexit referendum, local businesses have been “hugely resilient and pragmatic” about the challenges ahead.“To be honest, two years later our patience is wearing thin,” she added.Ms McKeever said the Conservative party’s customs partnership and maximum facilitation models “are not options that inspire confidence”.She also highlighted the “real damage” caused by Brexit uncertainty to Northern Ireland community relations and political will to work together.She said that there couldn’t be a Free Trade Agreement in the world which would be “worth sacrificing” twenty years of peace and relative prosperity for.Bonnie Anley, Chair of Foyle Port, lead sponsor of today’s event, added: “We welcome the visit to the city by Jeremy Corbyn and his engagement with the Chamber and stakeholders in the area.“It is vital that many of the senior politicians involved in the Brexit debate come to experience and see the day-to-day business realities that we are faced with, and how any future arrangements might impact upon us.“Despite the impending negotiation deadlines, we – like many businesses here – feel there is still a lack of clarity in the key areas of trade, travel and customs. As a key driver of the north west economy, we are keen that the post-Brexit arrangements are firmed up as soon as possible.“We encourage Mr Corbyn on his return to London to impress upon the Government and his own party colleagues that it is imperative a swift and positive remedy is found to the problems any sort of hard border would impose.” Google+ Pinterest Twitter Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows center_img Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp By News Highland – May 25, 2018 DL Debate – 24/05/21 News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Facebook Previous articleLoughs Agency planning to replace flood damaged fencing in TyroneNext articleNo further clarity on whether LUH short stay ward will reopen News Highland WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgA French court sentenced Thierry Tilly, 48, to eight years in jail today, on charges of false imprisonment and abusing the weakness of psychologically vulnerable persons. He relieved 11 members of the aristocratic de Védrines family of £3.6 million, as well as property including a chateau near Bordeaux, over the course of a decade, in what the Judge described as a “Machiavellian Plot.” Tilly convinced the family that their lives were in danger as part of a scheme involving the Hapsburg dynasty and freemasons, and hid them in Oxford.Tilly, with the aid of another man, Jacques Gonzalez, told the de Védrines that he was a NATO spy working for the true king of France and the international secret society called ‘The Balance of The World,’ fighting against  paedophiles and the masonic order. In return for protection against the conspiracy, he convinced the family to give him jewellery, property and cash over a ten year period. Their resulting seclusion from society in their ancestral Chateau led to the French press naming the de Védrines “the recluses of Monflanquin.”When the property was seized by the French government due to unpaid taxes, Tilly moved the family into hiding in several homes across Oxford. Five properties were rented from Oxford Landlord Andrew Scully, and the family stayed in a house on near Cowley Road. Scully also alleges that he has been “well and truly conned” out of a quarter of a million pounds in damages, rent and court fees. The family lived and worked in Oxford for several years.Throughout this period, their money was gradually transferred to a Canadian charity run by Gonzalez called ‘The Blue Light Foundation.’ Mr. Gonzalez has also been imprisoned for 4 years for deception and complicity. When sentencing, Judge Marie-Elisabeth Bancal said that Tilly had used the “creation of group paranoia” and the “exploitation of family weaknesses” to exploit the de Védrines. He became “a constant presence by their side, physically and then by telephone or email.” Daniel Picotin, the family’s British lawyer, said of Tilly that “he is to mental manipulation what Leonardo da Vinci is to painting.”A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police said that they were not involved in the court proceedings, and declined to comment on the case.last_img read more
