5 safe-haven stocks I’d buy amid fears of ANOTHER stock market crash

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild | Wednesday, 3rd June, 2020 Enter Your Email Address 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. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Admiral Group and Fresnillo. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Global share indices have continued to surge in early June. The FTSE 100 continues to make ground above 6,200 points and was last trading at three-month highs. Could we be on the cusp of another stock market crash though?It could certainly be argued that recent movements on stock exchanges fail to reflect actual conditions on the ground. Nigel Green, chief executive of financial advisory firm deVere Group, recently described these stock market gains as “extraordinary”.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…He commented that they’re unusual “…as tensions between the U.S. and China — the world’s two largest economies — are heightened, when the President of the US is threatening to deploy the US army onto the streets of America, and as the global economy attempts to recover due to an ongoing pandemic for which there is still no cure, to name a few of the current factors causing chaos.”Protect yourself from a stock market crashInvestor confidence remains extremely fragile despite rising demand for so-called riskier assets, like equities. Therefore, it’s not hard to envisage another stock market crash, should any of the aforementioned issues blow up again.It could well pay to remain well-invested in safe haven stocks then, lifeboats whose profits should remain resilient — or indeed could well advance — in the event of a macroeconomic and/or geopolitical meltdown.Hochschild Mining is one share whose bottom line could benefit should market fears escalate again. In this scenario, investors would switch out of stocks and into classic safe havens, like precious metals, in huge numbers. The stage would then be set for silver prices to continue their recent charge.The dual-role metal has already rocketed 15% in May and has continued to rise. It’s burst through the $18 per ounce barrier in recent hours. And there are compelling technical reasons to expect it to outperform that most famous flight-to-safety asset, gold, in the weeks and months ahead. This also makes FTSE 100 silver digger Fresnillo an attractive buy today.More top safe havens!I’d say Hastings Group should again outperform the broader market in the event of a fresh stock market crash. General insurance providers like this historically tend to have more resilient revenues in tough economic times. And the beauty of this particular company — a specialist in the motor insurance segment — is that citizens have a legal requirement to buy the sorts of products it offers if they still want to use a car.Footsie share Admiral Group boasts the same advantages, as does Direct Line Insurance Group. Recent disruption to the tourism industry means these stocks are facing large travel insurance-related bills. And they could suffer more significant costs should a second wave of the pandemic hit later in 2020.On the whole, however, these stocks are likely to remain resilient in what could prove a tough few years for the global economy. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Biarritz boot Munster out as they head to the Heineken Cup final

first_imgSunday May 2, 2010 Biarritz boot Munster out as they head to the Heineken Cup final Biarritz knocked Munster out of the Heineken Cup today with an impressive 18-7 win in the second semi final in San Sebastian. They progress to the final where they will face fellow French side Toulouse in Paris on May 22nd.Keith Earls scored a good try for Munster as they went into the halftime lead 7-3 up, but in the second half the forward pack of the Biarritz side ground them down, allowing Dimitri Yachvili to show his class as he kicked them to victory.Six kicks from six attempts meant that whenever Munster stepped out of line, they were made to pay as they threw everything into it in the final ten minutes.The game wasnt as entertaining as one might have hoped, with both sides coughing up a few unforced handling errors that halted the flow to some extent. The tension rose near the end though, as Biarritz held on and the crowd got behind them.Man of the Match Yachvili said afterwards that hes very proud to have made the final.“This is very emotional – we left everything out there. We were in a bit of bother in the first half – but we realised that our mental strength, solidity and team spirit could get us through and we proved our mettle,” he said.Imanol Harinordoquy, who played with a broken nose and then left with injured ribs after 66 minutes, was overjoyed afterwards.“The lads did a fantastic job – group spirit brought us through. We want to win it now as Toulouse have been champions before and we haven’t.” ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Lyon Capitale in receivership

first_img Organisation January 12, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Lyon Capitale in receivership FranceEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information May 10, 2021 Find out more Placed in receivership on 10 January by the city’s commercial court, Lyon Capitale has avoided liquidation for the present and is open to possible new ownership bids. In the meantime, the newspaper has still not reappeared for sale at newsstands.——9 January 2006Lyons-based weekly faces bankruptcy after criticising city’s mayorReporters Without Borders voiced regret today that the provincial weekly Lyon Capitale is facing bankruptcy as a result of its criticism of Lyons mayor Gérard Collomb in October over his allocation of public markets, which prompted the mayor to withdraw all municipal advertising from the newspaper.Run at a loss for years, Lyon Capitale has depended on municipal subsidies and advertising for its survival. Its financial problems deepened after it was bought by a group of private investors in August. A close aide of the mayor told Reporters Without Borders that Collomb terminated all advertising because he felt he had been libelled, but the decision is likely to result in the newspaper’s closure and the dismissal of all of its staff.“We regret that a newspaper’s survival is in danger because it criticised a local politician,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Lyon Capitale’s journalists are paying the price for the sharp deterioration in relations between the newspaper’s executives and the city of Lyons. Regardless of whether or not the accusations against mayor were true, the use of state and local government advertising as a means of pressure threatens press freedom and must be condemned.”Lyon Capitale used to support Collomb when he took over as mayor in 2001 but it gradually began giving more and more space to the local opposition, especially his leading challenger, Dominique Perben of the centre-right UMP. After the publication of the very critical issue in October, the mayor took Lyon Capitale’s majority shareholder, Bruno Rousset, to task about its editorial line. The newspaper’s publisher, Jean-Olivier Arfeuillère, was fired on 13 December.Rejecting the publisher appointed to replace Arfeuillère, the newspaper’s staff staged a series of strikes in December. The editor was dismissed as well on 3 January. The newspaper has not been published for several weeks and may never re-appear.Meanwhile, the staff of another Lyons-based newspaper, La Tribune de Lyon, also went on strike on 4 January in protest against the censorship of a report implicating the mayor in a case of embezzlement. The publisher, who is a Collomb supporter, refused to publish the article and replaced it with an interview with Collomb.

Journalist freed after three years in prison on baseless charges, plans exile

first_img Organisation News News News Follow the news on Mexico May 17, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist freed after three years in prison on baseless charges, plans exile Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Reports Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img MexicoAmericas RSF_en April 28, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders hails provincial journalist Jesús Lemus Barajas’s release on 11 May and hopes that the authorities will one day explain how he came to be held for three years in the absence of any evidence against him, and compensate him for everything he has suffered. Lemus and his family now plan to go into exile.The founder and publisher of El Tiempo, a local newspaper in Piedad, in the southwestern state of Michoacán, and a former correspondent of the national daily La Jornada, Lemus was arrested on absolutely baseless drug trafficking charges on 7 May 2008 while investigating drug cartel activity in Cuerámaro, in the neighbouring state of Guanajuato, and was transferred to a high-security prison in Puente Grande (in Jalisco state), five weeks later.Shortly after his arrest, Reporters Without Borders drew attention to the lack of any hard evidence against him and to the appalling treatment he initially received, which reportedly including beating, torture and death threats.Lemus was freed under a Guanajuato state judge’s ruling on 11 May that said: “Considering that there are no grounds for even the least suspicion that (Lemus) was linked to drug trafficking or organized crime activities, he is absolved of all charges and is given an acquittal.” His lawyer, Gregorio Medina Salazar, told Reporters Without Borders it overturned the 20-year jail sentence that another Guanajuato state judge passed on Lemus in January.Lemus is convinced that his work as a journalist was the only reason for his arrest. “What is clear to me is the government’s hypersensitivity to criticism and the determination of the authorities to use force to obstruct freedom of expression,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “My work was helping to shed light on the relations that exist between government circles and certain drug cartels.”He said he intended to file a request for asylum in the United States or another country because it was impossible to work as a journalist in Mexico. “During my trial, the authorities did not even recognize that I was a professional journalist. And now that I am no longer in prison, I do not feel safe between the state’s persecution is palpable and I have also received threats from organized crime. I feel as though I am in the middle of this war.”Michoacán is one of the epicentres of the federal offensive against drug trafficking that President Felipe Calderón launched on 15 December 2006, within days of taking office. This undeclared war is still being waged more than four years later with a toll now put at more than 40,000 dead.Lemus’s family was harassed and intimidated while he was detained. A score of soldiers searched their home in La Piedad without a warrant on 31 July 2008. After another search on 18 August 2010, a complaint was filed with the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. On 31 August 2009, the three lawyers then responsible for defending Lemus – Vladimir Camacho Guzmán, Rubén Emmanuel Castro and Gilberto Estrada – were murdered on the road connecting the state of Michoacán with the state of Guanajuato. Reporters Without Borders met members of the Lemus family and the staff of El Tiempo during a fact-finding visit to Mexico in July 2009.According to the information available to Reporters Without Borders, the release of Lemus and the release a month ago of the last journalist detained in Cuba leave Latin America with just three journalists in prison for reasons directly related to their work – two of them in Peru and the third in Ecuador.

Teen jailed after calling 911 on himself to demand his own arrest for getting drunk at home

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(VAN BUREN, Arkansas) — Police in Van Buren, Arkansas are still scratching their heads over one of the most unusual arrests they said they have made in years.On Thursday night, police received a call from an 18-year-old reporting underage drinking in his home – by him.“Basically he, I guess, was intoxicated and called our office and said he was underage and drinking and he wanted to go to jail,” Van Buren Police Department Sergeant Jonathan Wear told ABC News in a telephone interview.“At first the [responding] officers were a little confused,” he said. “They went to make contact and when they went to the house this guy — he actually came out of the apartment with his hands up. At that time, the officers didn’t know it was him who called – they thought it was a neighbor. The officers asked what was going on and he admitted to calling.”“The officers wanted to give him a chance so they said, you know, ‘Look, just stay in your apartment and don’t drink, and you can go back into your house,’ but I guess he wasn’t good with that,” Wear explained. “They actually gave him a chance to go back inside and sober up. But he refused. He said, ‘I really need to go to jail.’” Wear said the young man told officers he had been drinking after having a bad day.He said that Van Buren police officers still can’t figure out what prompted the young man to self-confess and turn himself in.“There’s a little bit of a buzz around here,” Wear said. “The officers at the police department are talking about it because it’s just so unusual.” “He was not very high,” Wear said.“It wasn’t like he was just wasted or anything. He was not bad at all. The officers told him that ‘in your house [underage drinking is] not an issue. But with him refusing to go back in, the officers couldn’t leave him wandering around outside, so they arrested him and took him in.”The young man was charged with public intoxication, but the mystery behind his self-confession remains.On the ride to the station, “there wasn’t any real conversation,” Wear said.By Arkansas state law, individuals arrested for public intoxication must remain locked up for at least six hours.Wear said the young man was locked up for six hours and then released on a “small” bond.“It was a very strange arrest.”Wear declined to provide the teenager’s name.“We are not releasing his name,” the sergeant said. “We don’t want to cause him too much trouble.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Cherie Blair says: axe the tenant tax!

Landlords fight back over The Tenant Tax: Cherie Blair QC is to represent the organisation called, ‘Axe the Tenant Tax’ at a permission hearing for judicial review of section 24 of the Finance Act 2015 on Thursday 6th October 2016 at the Administrative Court, Royal Courts of Justice, WC2A 2LLThe organisation says that changes proposed in Section 24 of the Finance (No.2) Act 2015 will stop buy-to-let finance costs (largely mortgage interest) being a claimable business expense. This means, they say, that most landlords with mortgages will now have to pay tax – The Tenant Tax –on their turnover rather than their profit and no other business in the UK is treated in the same manner.Many landlords will have to pay extra tax of 20 per cent or more of their mortgage interest payments. The tax they pay might be greater than their real profit, leaving them with a rental loss and a cash shortfall. This tax will only affect individuals who own rental properties in their own names, like the millions of smaller landlords in the UK. Companies owning buy-to-let property and wealthy cash investors are excluded from the tax.Co-claimants Steve Bolton, Founder of Platinum Property Partners, and Chris Cooper, a fellow landlord and airline cabin crew member, are pursuing a Judicial Review of this legislation against the Government and HMRC. They are represented by law firm Omnia Strategy LLP, led by Cherie Blair MBE QC. Axe The Tenant Tax is challenging the proposed tax changes on the basis that Section 24:Is a failed tax experiment from Ireland where rents increased 50 per cent in three years and was scrapped by the Government as a resultIs an unfair tax on tenants and non-corporate landlords and will distort market competitionWill increase rents substantiallyIs a bad tax policy that breaks Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)Will make the UK housing crisis worseThe result of the permission hearing will be issued on Thursday 6th October.
