Investment themes for 2021: 6 of my favourites

first_img In January every year, I put together a list of investment themes I think could endure for the entire year or longer. This is also what some fund managers do when buying stocks. With this list of six of my favourite investment themes for 2021, I try to capture some of the real reasons why stocks go up and down.  #1 – Online shoppingE-commerce is growing and I expect it will continue to do so for the next few years. The coronavirus crisis has taught retailers they can’t simply rely on stores, and must have an online presence.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…I like stocks such as Next and The Hut Group, that have strong brands and growing online sales. A company like Clipper Logistics is also on my radar. It provides retailers the infrastructure to fulfil their online orders.#2 – Covid-19Unfortunately the coronavirus pandemic has not been resolved in 2021. While there are vaccines out by Pfizer and AstraZeneca I’m selecting the small-cap stock Synairgen to play out this investment theme for 2021.The AIM-listed company is the process of developing a Covid-19 treatment. So far it has had successful trials and has been fast-tracked by the US regulator, the FDA.#3 – TravelThere have been travel restrictions during the pandemic and these are likely to persist as the vaccination programme is being rolled out. I agree with many in the travel industry, and expect travel to start picking up in the second half of 2021.With a recovery in travel as one of my investment themes for 2021, I’d select an airline stock like easyJet. This company operates predominately short-haul European flights. I think consumers are likely to book a quick European trip once it is safe to travel and government restrictions are lifted.I’d also consider Rolls-Royce shares as 50% of its revenue comes from servicing planes. As the airliners start to resume their normal operations, this stock is likely to recover strongly.#4 – TechnologyThere’s no doubt that technology stocks have been a clear winner during the coronavirus crisis. The fact that people have had to work from home has meant that companies such as Zoom and Microsoft have had a huge demand for their services.Instead of focusing on the big technology stocks, I’m focusing on shares such as Draper Esprit. This is a venture capital firm that invests in some of Europe’s fastest growing private, pre-IPO technology businesses.#5 – Home improvementPeople are currently working from home and I think that going forward most employers will allow some remote working. This has enabled consumers to rediscover their homes and find ways to improve them. I expect home retailers such as Kingfisher and Dunelm to benefit from home improvement as one f my investment themes for 2021.# 6 – New and old safe havensDuring the pandemic, investors have been looking at assets that diversify a portfolio and hedge inflation, and I think this will continue as an investment theme for 2021. Gold has typically been the old safe haven and hence the price of the precious metal rallied last year. A small-cap gold miner that I’m considering is Greatland Gold, which has had a series of successful drilling projects.Popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin have rallied and some are even considering it as the new ‘digital gold’. Rather than buying cryptocurrencies directly I’d consider Argo Blockchain. This stock is a cryptocurrency miner and has been delivering positive operational updates over the past few months.

Friday Funnies – Jamie Roberts helps Luke Fitzgerald to cool off

first_imgFriday Jul 17, 2009 Friday Funnies – Jamie Roberts helps Luke Fitzgerald to cool off Following the successful 1997 British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa, a fantastic DVD was released that captured behind the scenes footage of the antics that took place both on the field, and off it. Here we have a 2009 preview of what we might see when the latest DVD gets released.While on tour, obviously the biggest goal is to achieve on the rugby field. These guys are only human though, and many of them youngsters, so having a laugh and enjoying yourself off the field is just as big a part of touring as winning is.At a photo shoot in Bloemfontein ahead of the tour match against the Cheetahs, Ireland and Lions wing Tommy Bowe played cameraman and commentator, as he snapped some of the behind the scenes bits that take place with the media and sponsors.First its a bit of commentary on the minorities of the tour party, the Scots, and then its a bit of boyish mischief from the Lions Player of the Series, Jamie Roberts.Luke Fitzgerald found himself in poser mode, as he sat elegantly on the edge of an icy hotel swimming pool as Bowe and Roberts plotted his demise…Watch the photographers as they run in to capture the moment, which weve compiled for you herein a series of pics.

K & T’s Place is the renovation of a traditional ‘Queenslander’ style home in a rapidly developing suburb of Brisbane.

Norbert Zongo and Deyda Hydara – symbols of impunity

first_imgNews Burkina FasoAfrica May 5, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en Burkina FasoAfrica June 7, 2021 Find out more Hydara, who was gunned down in Banjul on 16 December 2004, was the co-founder and co-editor of the privately-owned daily The Point. He also headed the Gambian journalists’ union and was the correspondent of Agence France-Presse and Reporters Without Borders.The official investigation only came up with improbable theories although it was demonstrated that he was under surveillance at the time of his death. A few weeks after his murder, the authorities adopted media legislation that is among the most repressive in West Africa and has left Gambia’s journalists living in terror ever since. More information about media freedom in Gambia and the Hydara case.The International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX) is currently waging a major campaign against impunity for crimes of violence against those who exercise their right to freedom of expression while the National Union of Somali Journalists has just published a report on impunity in Somalia, Africa’s deadliest country for the media. Against this backdrop, Reporters Without Borders urges the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, especially the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Nigeria and South Sudan, to make justice for murdered journalists one of their priorities for 2013.Photo : Norbert Zongo and Deyda Hydara News Follow the news on Burkina Faso December 14, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Norbert Zongo and Deyda Hydara – symbols of impunity to go further French reporter says he has been kidnapped in northeastern Mali Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder Organisation A day after the 14th anniversary of journalist Norbert Zongo’s murder in Burkina Faso and two days before the 8th anniversary of journalist Deyda Hydara’s murder in Gambia, Reporters Without Borders accuses the authorities in these two countries of sabotaging the investigations into their deaths and encouraging impunity.“Will Zongo and Hydara ever be rendered justice?” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities in Burkina Faso and Gambia have distinguished themselves in the eyes of their own people and the international community for years by their inertia, lies and absence of any desire to shed light on the murders of these two great journalists.“As in the Zongo and Hydara cases, the impunity enjoyed by those who murder journalists in Africa is one of the worst scourges for freedom of information in this continent.” The discovery of Zongo’s body in a car gutted by fire on 13 December 1998 shocked Burkina Faso and the rest of Africa. Zongo was the editor of the weekly L’Indépendant and at the time of his death he had been investigating a murder in which people close to President Compaoré were implicated.An initial investigation was carried out but in the end the case was dismissed and the authorities have done nothing since then. Zongo’s colleagues and Burkina Faso’s population are still waiting for justice to be rendered. More information about the case.

The annual leadership workshop, hosted by Associated Student Body officers, gives these students the chance to formulate ideas, plan upcoming activities, and gear up for a new school year.According to ASB President Oona Holahan, the 95 students who attended the August 11th conference represented the student council, four class boards and nearly 30 clubs and student-run organizations on campus, including Immaculate Heart’s newest offerings, the Chess Club and Pop Culture Association.This year’s event addressed a range of topics, including responsibility and accountability, tips for public speaking, how to craft a mission statement, and even ways to maintain a healthy balance between extracurricular activities and school.Between sessions, students also participated in their own fun versions of “Olympic” games, including “Gold Metal Cup Stacking” and a “Visual Scavenger Hunt” that saw students scouring the campus to capture images of school landmarks.“Our games may not have been televised like when Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky won the gold, but, arguably, they were equally challenging and character building,” said Holahan with a smile.On a more serious note, the senior pointed out, “Not only was our Olympic theme timely, it also helped emphasize the importance of student leadership. It was amazing to see almost 100 students voluntarily gathering during their last days of summer break and then sharing with the school community. Like Olympians, our student leaders have worked hard to arrive at where they are now. They are also ready and willing to put in more work in order to create a successful future for themselves, their peers, and the entire Immaculate Heart school community,” she added.Immaculate Heart’s high school classes start Thursday, August 18th, with Immaculate Heart’s middle school opening its doors on Monday, August 22.About Immaculate HeartFounded in 1906, Immaculate Heart educates young women in grades sixth through 12th from its central location in the Los Feliz foothills near Griffith Park in Hollywood. The school has a long and distinguished history, with more than 10,000 graduates. Today’s student body of more than 700 young women is both geographically and ethnically diverse, drawing on students from throughout Los Angeles County. Last year, virtually 100 percent of Immaculate Heart graduates matriculated to colleges, including the most prestigious schools in the country.Immaculate Heart High School and Middle School, 5515 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, (323) 461-3651 or visit www.immaculateheart.org. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Business News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community Newscenter_img 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Subscribe Make a comment Your email address will not be published.

No new fatalities were reportedIn total, the city had documented 11,300 cases of the virus and 349 deaths.Over the prior week, Pasadena saw an average of 0.9 new infections each day, according to public health department data.While the bulk of COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted on June 15, Los Angeles County’s public health director warned that rules requiring masking and physical distancing will remain in place in some settings — most notably in schools, on public transit and in health-care Facilities.“There are a few sectors where masking and distancing protections will be retained given the high risk of either unknown vaccination status, large numbers of people who are not vaccinated or the fact that they are, by their very nature, high-risk settings,” Barbara Ferrer told the county Board of Supervisors.“These sites include schools, child-care facilities, camps, health-care facilities, high-risk congregate settings, indoor `mega events’ and public transit,” she said. “For all other sectors, public health will be retiring our protocols and issuing instead best-practice guidance.”She noted that state health officials have not yet released their rules California as a whole will be following in terms of mask-wearing beginning June 15. But the state has indicated it will follow guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which in general allows vaccinated people to shed their masks in most settings, but requires those who are not vaccinated to continue wearing them.Additional rules are also expected in worksites, pending a final decision on rules that were adopted last week by the board of the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, or Cal-OSHA. In general, those rules will require all workers in indoor settings to continue wearing masks regardless of vaccination status, unless one person is working alone in a room or if all people in a room are fully vaccinated and not showing any symptoms of COVID-19. Physical distancing rules can be scrapped indoors and outdoors if employers make N-95 respirator masks available to non-vaccinated workers.Cal-OSHA’s proposed rules also won’t require masks for workers in outdoor settings, except at outdoor “mega events” with 10,000 or more people.At those events, workers would have to wear face masks regardless of their vaccination status.According to statistics released Monday, 65% of the county’s population age 16 and over have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while 54% — or roughly 4.5 million people — are fully vaccinated.Ferrer said the county is reporting 13 more COVID-19 deaths on Tuesday, along with 186 new cases.In all, 1,245,412 cases of COVID-19 and 24,404 deaths had been recorded in L.A. County.According to state figures, there were 243 people hospitalized due to COVID-19 in the county as of Tuesday, up from 232 on Monday, with 40 people in intensive care, up from 37 a day earlier.At the state level, the California Department of Public Health announced 792 new infections and 6 fatalities, although L.A. County health officials, alone, listed more than double that number of deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week was recorded at 0.7%, according to CDPH data.As of Tuesday, L.A. county accounted for 34% of California’ COVID-19 infections and 39% of the state’s deaths.

The main stairs that lead to the second floor of the UTPB Engineering Building during tour of the site Thursday in Midland. With walls and beams going up, officials from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin showcased the progress of its new engineering building.Located near the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center, 1310 N. Farm to Market Road 1788 in Midland, the three-story building includes 105,801 square feet. The project cost is $55 million with substantial completion May 14, 2019.UTPB President Sandra Woodley said the university already has petroleum and mechanical, but the building will also house chemical and electrical engineering.On Wednesday, media viewed the steel, walls and spaces carved out that make up the beginnings of the interior. The inside also will include a 108-seat lecture hall on the first floor, a visualization laboratory on the second floor and 42-seat classrooms — two on each floor, information provided during the tour said.There will be four labs on each floor for mechanical, petroleum, chemical and electrical engineering with research labs, the information said.Three 24-seat laboratory classrooms — one on each floor, three computer labs, also one on each floor, student success centers, 30 faculty offices — 10 on each floor; a dean’s suite, two elevators and a student cafe also will be included, the information said.Woodley said the building will be state-of-the-art in terms of items like lab equipment.“We also are excited that in fall of 2019 we start classes in this new building and also it’s true that the need for engineering programs in the Permian Basin where so much is happening around the energy industry really gives this university an opportunity to provide that workforce and the innovation that’s needed,” Woodley said.“We’re spending millions of dollars on lab equipment that will be the latest software and hardware — lab equipment that our students will need and our faculty will need to do research and to learn about their prospective degrees,” she added. “We’re not skimping at all. We’re spending a lot of time making sure that we have the best tools available for our students to learn.”Woodley said UTPB has great partnerships with industry leaders in the region and they hire graduates from the school.“Our graduates will be connecting with them; our faculty will be connecting with them; and early in the academic process, we think that will be a differentiator for our students,” Woodley said. “There’s a lot of excitement about the building and even more excitement about the quality of graduates that (will) come out of this facility.”“Now what we’re able to do here is hire the best faculty and attract the best students to come take advantage of all that we have to offer here in our engineering programs,” she added.Interim Dean of the College of Engineering Forrest Flocker said the building is “kind of a big deal.”“We started with two programs, one in mechanical and one in petroleum. They were really focused on the oil patch and the kind of workers they needed for that. But the adding of chemical and electrical has really expanded our role,” Flocker said.“Our goal is to have a comprehensive engineering university right here at UT Permian Basin. We would like to have other programs, for example civil engineering and some graduate programs. We’re looking forward to moving to this idea of comprehensive engineering college,” Flocker added.He said some time needs to pass to get the new programs established and growing before that can happen.“We just need to move forward at a pace that’s commensurate with what we expect to happen in the Permian Basin,” Flocker said.He noted that there are currently about 600 students in the engineering programs and that is expected to double in the next five years.Flocker said it will benefit the community to be able to grow its own engineers because some companies have a hard time recruiting engineers from other places in the state or country.Flocker said the vast majority — well over 90 percent — of engineering students, not just locally but nationwide, find employment within six months of graduating.More Information Twitter Pinterest An illustration of what the finished UTPB Engineering Building will look like next to UTPB’s Center for Energy and Economic Diversification building in Midland.
