Forget gold and Bitcoin. I’d buy these 2 cheap UK shares now in an ISA for the new bull market

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Peter Stephens Cheap UK shares have made strong gains in the past two weeks. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have surged higher as a result of improving investor sentiment in response to positive news regarding a coronavirus vaccine.Clearly, their performance still lags gold and Bitcoin’s price rises in 2020. However, their low prices and improving long-term prospects could make them more attractive investments than the precious metal and virtual currency.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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that appear to offer good value for money even after their strong gains over the past two weeks. I think they could continue to rise in a new bull market.Improving outlook relative to other cheap UK sharesTesco (LSE: TSCO) could offer improving performance relative to other cheap UK shares, I feel. The company has recorded a 10% rise in its share price in the past two weeks. Yet it trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 13.5.This suggests to me that it offers a wide margin of safety, since the retailer is forecast to post double-digit profit growth over the medium term. Key reasons for this could be its position as the UK’s main online grocery retailer. And its capacity to become more efficient through increased innovation could count too.Tesco’s growing profitability is expected to lead to a rising dividend. The company is forecast to yield 4% next year from a dividend that is covered almost twice by net profit. This suggests that it is affordable, and could rise at a brisk pace over the long run.While consumer confidence could remain weak over the short run, Tesco appears to offer good value for money relative to other cheap UK shares.FTSE 100 outperformance at a reasonable pricePersimmon (LSE: PSN) could also outperform other cheap UK shares in the long run, I believe. The company’s P/E ratio of 12.8 may undervalue its prospects. After all, it is forecast to post an 8% rise in net profit next year.The company’s recent updates have shown that demand for new homes has been robust even with an uncertain economic outlook. Its solid balance sheet could mean that it is in a strong position to survive a period of weaker sales, should factors such as increasing unemployment hit demand for new homes.Persimmon’s share price has moved 20% higher in the past two weeks. However, it could make further gains within a diverse portfolio of cheap UK shares. Its investment in improving customer satisfaction scores seems to be paying off, with it trending among industry highs during the course of 2020.Clearly, risks such as a weak economic outlook and changes to government housing measures may limit its near-term prospects. However, its long-term performance relative to the FTSE 100 could be positive, as low interest rates provide support to the UK housing industry. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images.

Lords Taverners Present minibus to Hilton Foundation for fundraising success

first_imgLords Taverners Present minibus to Hilton Foundation for fundraising success Tagged with: Funding London The Lord’s Taverners presented one of its iconic minibuses to the ‘Hilton in the Community Foundation’ at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Friday 5 December, in recognition of funding raised at a charity ball on 18 October.The Lord’s Taverners were represented by Clare Strange, GB wheelchair basketball player at the Beijing 2008 Paralympics and TV star Lorraine Chase.Special guests and West End stars The Jersey Boys, who performed at the Ball, were present alongside Ian Carter, President Hilton Global Operations, Simon Vincent, Chairman of the Hilton Foundation’s Trustees and Area President of Hilton UK and Ireland, and Andreas Panayiotou, Chairman of The Ability Group, sponsors of this year’s ball.The Lord’s Taverners, the youth sports charity, was the main beneficiary of the Hilton in the Community Foundation Ball, which raised over £360,000. The charity received almost £220,000 for its Disability Sports Appeal, a huge boost towards its goal of raising £1 million for disability sport in the build up to the 2012 Paralympics in London. The money will be used to buy specially-adapted sports wheelchairs for children with disabilities, as well as supporting the infrastructure and clubs to enable students to participate.The Hilton in the Community Foundation will present the specially-adapted minibus to the Comberton Village College, Cambridge, in early 2009. The school welcomes all members of the community with special needs of any kind, and caters for all levels of ability. This minibus will provide Comberton Village College pupils with vital access to activities outside of the school grounds, including sports events, educational trips andDame Maureen Thomas, Hilton in the Community Foundation Trustee and Chair of the Ball Committee, said:“We are thrilled to have raised a record amount at the most successful ball in the Foundation’s history. In the current financial climate it is more important than ever for us to support children’s charities in need of help. We were also delighted to have the Taverners Disability Sports Appeal as this year’s principal beneficiary; having enjoyed watching this year’s Paralympians in Beijing I hope that this fundraising will help to equip the next generation of athletes with the tools for success!”Judith Chalmers OBE, Lady Taverners President Emeritus said:“To have raised such a spectacular sum of money is wonderful and I’d like to thank everyone for their support on behalf of The Lord’s Taverners Disability Sports Appeal. This money raised for the junior wheelchair sports programmes we have put in place and for the provision of sports wheelchairs will really make a great difference to so many young people’s lives, and will enable children with disabilities to enjoy all the benefits which sport has to offer.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  29 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 12 December 2008 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Presidential pardon for Tamil journalist on World Press Freedom Day

first_imgThe press freedom organisation added: “This is very political decision, coming just a few weeks ahead of presidential elections. It should have been taken within a few weeks of his arrest. Either way, his release on bail confirms that he was convicted on terrorism charge for which there was absolutely no evidence.” “This is very good news,” his lawyer, M.A. Sumanthiran, told today to Reporters Without Borders. “He left prison with his moral strengthened. And as we have good grounds for the appeal, I am fairly optimistic.” Arrested in March 2008 and convicted in August 2009, Tissainayagam spent a total of 21 months in detention, the first few weeks of which were particularly tough. “Tissainayagam’s release is a source of great joy for the many people who worked to prove his innocence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But this is just the first step. This renowned Tamil journalist must be fully cleared and allowed to resume a normal life.” Organisation In October, Tissainayagam became the first person to be awarded the Peter Mackler Prize for journalistic courage and integrity. The prize commemorates veteran Agence France-Presse reporter and editor Peter Mackler, who died last year. Tissainayagam’s detention was condemned by many foreign governments and leaders including US President Barack Obama, who referred to him as persecuted journalist on 3 May. A Reporters Without Borders representative discussed the Tissainayagam case at a meeting with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa in October 2008. Two other people who were arrested in the same case, S. Jaseeharan, a printer, and his partner, Vallarmathy, were released recently and sought refuge abroad. Sri LankaAsia – Pacific No serious evidence was ever produced to support the terrorism charge against Tissainayagam, who was arrested for criticising the army’s strategy in its war against the Tamil Tiger rebels and for launching a website called Outreachsl.com. Reporters Without Borders welcomes the presidential pardon for Tamil journalist J.S. Tissainayagam that was issued today to coincide with World Press Freedom Day. A columnist for the local Sunday Times newspaper and editor of the Outreachsl website, Tissainayagam was freed on bail in January pending an appeal against a 20-year jail sentence on charges of supporting terrorism and inciting racial hatred. Last October, while still in prison, he was awarded first prize in the Peter Mackler Award for journalistic courage and integrityReporters Without Borders urges President Mahinda Rajapakse to ensure that Tissainayagam will now be able to lead a normal life and, in particular, that he will be able to move freely and resume working as a journalist.________________________________________________________13 January 2010Tamil journalist’s release on bail hailed as first step towards acquittalReporters Without Borders welcomes Tamil journalist J. S. Tissainayagam’s release on bail today pending the outcome of his appeal against a 20-year jail sentence on a trumped-up charge of supporting terrorism. His release was ordered by a Colombo appeal court two days ago. Videos about J. S. Tissainayagam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkF1izDogCw News A member of his family described his release to Reporters Without Borders as “a ray of sunlight” but added that there was “still a lot of work to do” and that it was not yet time for celebrating.

New laws blamed as major factor in claims to tribunals

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Helen Rowe picks out the key findings in the Acas annual report published todayThe raft of legislative changes brought in under the Employment Relations Act 1999 is the chief factor behind the big rise in tribunal claims reported in today’s Acas annual report.But Acas attributes the 32 per cent rise in employment tribunal claims to social factors as well as new laws.The Working Time regulations and National Minimum Wage provision account for an extra 7,000 cases, according to the report.An increase of 37 per cent for claims under the protection of wages jurisdiction, which rose from 26,837 to 36,837, may also be due to working time.The lowering of the qualifying period for unfair dismissal cases from two years to one is estimated to have generated an extra 6,700 cases. The reduction is also believed to have played a role in a 16 per cent increase in the number of breach of contract complaints from 25,110 in 1998-91 to 29,053 in 1999-2000. The report says a heightened public awareness of discrimination issues, partly as a result of the Stephen Lawrence case, may explain a rise in claims. There was a 22 per cent rise in disability discrimination claims from 2,934 to 3,585. In race discrimination there was an increase of 20 per cent to 3,922.Despite Acas’s greater workload the report shows it has increased the percentage of cases it manages to settle from 41 per cent to 44 per cent.And the report says employers can benefit in a number of ways from Acas’s involvement, in addition to settling the immediate dispute.”Acas conciliators are aware of the wider implications of a case in trying to settle complaints. Many of the complaints act as points of referral for other kinds of help Acas can offer in developing good practice at work.”Acas chairwoman Rita Donaghy added, “These days the name Acas is often used as a byword for thinking ahead rather than patching up and making do. In the end it makes sense to follow good practice, both financially and in terms of employee well-being. “These figures show that we have an increasingly important role to play.” New laws blamed as major factor in claims to tribunalsOn 24 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.
