5G shares UK investors can buy today

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 27th March, 2021 5G shares UK investors can buy today 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The 5G market may be one of the most significant growth markets of the next decade. One estimate suggests the US 5G infrastructure market could grow at a compound annual rate of 87% between 2020 and 2027, from $1bn in 2019 to $152bn by 2027.Figures suggest something similar will happen on this side of the pond. With that in mind, here’s a selection of 5G shares UK investors can buy today. I’d buy these stocks to capitalise on the growth of the market over the next five to 10 years.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…In my opinion, there are two ways investors like me can buy into the 5G revolution. Either owning the infrastructure companies or the telecommunications giants. Each strategy comes with benefits and drawbacks.5G sharesTelecommunications is a viciously competitive industry, and companies are constantly fighting each other for market share. As such, these businesses tend to be slow burners, although they can return a lot of cash to investors. On the other hand, equipment suppliers’ products are usually protected by patents. This means profits can be higher, but these businesses have to reinvest a large percentage of their profits in research and development. One company that falls into the latter bucket, which I’d buy today, is Spirent Communications. This business tests 5G and broadband connections and devices. It also has a small Connected Devices division that helps corporations with wireless networks. Thanks to the growing demand for 5G connectivity and connected devices, the group reported a 4% increase in revenues last year. Its operating profit margin increased to 20% from 18% in 2019. While it looks as if the business could continue to benefit from the 5G trend, it’s highly dependent on contract revenues. If a contract is delayed or a competitor steals market share, Spirent’s growth could slow. This is the most considerable risk the business faces right now. Another option I’d buy is XP Power. The power control solution designer supplies semiconductor manufacturers, among other customers. As the demand for connected devices grows, manufacturing capacity will likely increase, translating into more business for XP.That said, this company is exposed to other industries as well. Even if the 5G market continues to expand, a general economic slowdown could hit the business. Competition from lower-cost Chinese competitors is also a significant threat the enterprise is facing. Telecoms In terms of customer-facing businesses, I’d also buy Vodafone and BT. The latter owns the largest 5G network in the country, EE, and the UK’s national broadband infrastructure, Openreach. This suggests the company has two ways to benefit from the data revolution.Still, it’s facing increasing challenges from other competitors such as Vodafone, as well as newer upstarts. As I noted above, the group’s biggest challenge is competition in the telecommunications sector.The same is true of Vodafone. This company has more geographic diversification and owns one of the largest data networks in Europe. This could make the corporation a better buy than the domestic-focused BT in the long run, although it still faces similar challenges and risks.  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.

Bangui judicial authorities lose French journalist’s murder file

first_img May 13, 2020 Find out more Central African RepublicAfrica April 6, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts CAR policeman who shot reporter must be punished, RSF says December 13, 2019 Find out more Four years after the young French photojournalist Camille Lepage was shot dead in an ambush in the Central African Republic’s western Bouar region on 12 May 2014, judicial problems in Bangui continue to hold up the investigation into her murder. Organisation Central African RepublicAfrica News Six years on, same unanswered questions about French journalist’s death in CAR Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information “Closing this case is out the question until we are satisfied that everything that could be done has been done,” said Vincent Fillola, the Lepage family’s legal adviser, who has just returned from a visit to Bangui. Aged 26, Lepage was murdered while travelling with one of the “anti-balaka” militias that fought the Séléka rebels during the 2012-2014 civil war in the CAR. Her killers have still not been identified and much remains to be done to advance the investigation.According to the information obtained by RSF, Fillola encountered an unexpected problem in Bangui: the Lepage murder case file has disappeared. Continuing political instability in the CAR, which has resulted in many judges being moved from one position to another, could be to blame. The judicial authorities insist they are doing everything possible to find the file, but its disappearance forced the judges to postpone the trial that was initially scheduled for January 2018.Several hypotheses have been developed about the circumstances of the ambush and possible suspects have been named, but no investigation has been carried out at the scene of the murder and no crime reenactment has been conducted, although this is obligatory in murder cases. Carrying out an investigation at the place where the murder took place would have been very difficult four years ago because of the security situation prevailing at the time, but it would be possible now, Fillola said in an interview for Reporters Without Borders (RSF). “Police investigators and investigating judges say that current conditions would allow a visit to the location, with the support of MINUSCA [the UN peacekeeping mission in the CAR] and the French judicial services,” he said. “Everyone is calling for a field investigation.”“We count on the judicial authorities to do every possible to locate the Camille Lepage murder file,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “And since the security situation now allows it, it is incomprehensible that the investigators have not yet been able to carry out their investigation in the field, including a reenactment of the crime using forensic methods, which is essential. It is high time to complete this investigation, which has dragged on for too long. The responsibility and credibility of the CAR authorities is at stake. Everything must be done to ensure that this murder is not left unpunished.”Despite the problems in Bangui, Camille Lepage’s mother, Maryvonne Lepage, is determined to press on to the end. “Even if we cannot put a name to the person whose finger was on the trigger, it is essential that we at least identify the group that carried out the attack.” As well as establishing the truth about her daughter’s death, she is also aware of the need to press on for the sake of all the other reporters and photojournalists killed or missing in the field. “If we pursue this to the end, it can help all the other families to press on with their own investigations, or it can help to put other forgotten cases back on the agenda.”The Lepage murder is far from being the only one of a French journalist that is still unresolved after years. The investigation into the murders of Radio France Internationale journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon in northeastern Mali in 2013 has yet to be concluded. And the disappearance of Guy-André Kieffer, a journalist with French and Canadian dual nationality who disappeared in Côte d’Ivoire in 2004 while investigating shady practices in the cocoa trade, is unsolved after 14 years. According to the latest RSF tally, 1,035 journalists have been killed in connection with their work in the past 15 years, 65 of them in 2017.

Update on Bank Revenues

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, News Tagged with: Banks Coronavirus Revenue Trading revenue of U.S. commercial banks and federal savings associations of $7.2 billion in the Q4 2019, which was $4.0 million, or 0.1% less than the previous quarter, according to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC).While four large banks held 85.7% of the total banking industry notional amount of derivatives, a total of 1,324 insured U.S. commercial banks and savings associations held derivatives at the end of the fourth quarter 2019.Derivative contracts remained concentrated in interest rate products, which represented 72.9% of total derivative notional amounts. The percentage of centrally cleared derivatives transactions decreased quarter-over-quarter to 37.1% in the fourth quarter 2019.Many U.S. banks are underperforming in the wake of COVID-19, but according to research from Forbes, there are a few “bright spots.” Forbes’s portfolio of nine stocks showed an average return of 11% in the last five trading days compared with a 13% return in the Dow during the same period.The top 3 performers within the portfolio in the last five trading days were, Citigroup (15.1% return), Morgan Stanley (14.6% return), JPMorgan (14.4% return). On Friday, the top 3 performers were U.S Bancorp (-1.1% return), BNY Mellon (-1.4% return), State Street (-1.5% return).Top performer Citigroup’s market cap has declined by $86.6 billion from about $178.5 billion on December 31, 2019 to $91.9 billion now. The company had $74.3 billion in revenue in 2019, from which it derived $19.4 billion in net income and $8.08 in earnings per share.S&P Global Ratings believes the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have likely pushed the world economy into recession, dragging full-year GDP global growth down to just 1-1.5%.”We project China’s economy to expand 2.7%-3.2%, and the eurozone economy to contract 0.5%-1.0% in 2020,” they said in a statement.

Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily March 26, 2021 1,445 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago A week ago we saw forbearance activity drop below 2.6 million for the first time since last April, according to Black Knight’s McDash Flash Forbearance Tracker, and the decline continues this week.Active plans fell again this week, dropping by another 19,000 (-0.7%) from the previous Tuesday. In total, this puts the number of active plans down by 135,000 over the last month, or – a 5% reduction.The monthly decline represents the healthiest rate of improvement since the end of last November.Black Knight’s researchers say it is a direct result of servicers working through the 1.2 million plans that entered this month with scheduled March month-end expirations for extension and/or removal.They stress that even with such strong monthly improvement, there are still more than 46,000 active plans with March month-end expirations, which provides the potential for additional improvement in the coming weeks.As of March 23, 2.57 million homeowners remain in forbearance, representing 4.9% of all homeowners with mortgages.By type of loan:The week’s improvement was driven by decreases among both Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac-backed loans, at -21,000, and FHA/VA plans, which dropped by 10,000. Among portfolio/PLS mortgages, however, activity increased by 12,000.”Early extension activity suggests servicers continue to approach forbearance plans in three-month increments, with the bulk of would-be March expirations being extended out through June,” BK reported. “Plan extensions have accounted for 75% of all extension/removal activity in recent weeks, but removals are up simply as a result of the volume of expirations that were scheduled for this month.”The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently announced extensions of several measures that the agency says will align COVID-19 mortgage relief policies across the federal government. This announcement, which extends temporary measures (previously set to expire March 31) until the end of June follows the White House’s February 16 moratoria extension applied to all federally backed mortgages through the same period.Said measures include provisions for borrowers with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac-backed mortgages who may be eligible for an additional three-month extension of COVID-19 forbearance, according to a press release. This additional three-month extension allows borrowers to be in forbearance for up to 18 months. Black Knight notes this includes the bulk of would-be March expirations.Finally, the McDash Flash Payment Tracker shows that 90.7% of observed borrowers had made their payment through March 22, up from 89.8% at the same time in February.Find the full weekly forbearance reports on Black Knight’s blog.

Two unsolved murders in the 1970s now linked to one suspect through DNA: Prosecutors

first_imgEl Dorado County District Attorney(SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif.) — Two unsolved murders of young women from the 1970s have now been linked to one suspect through DNA and genetic genealogy, according to Northern California prosecutors.Brynn Rainey, 27, vanished in July 1977. Her body was found a month later in a shallow grave in South Lake Tahoe, according to the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office. Unknown DNA was left behind on a blood stain on Rainey’s shirt, prosecutors said.Two years later, 16-year-old Carol Andersen, a rising high school junior, was killed in the summer of 1979. Her battered body was found on the side of a South Lake Tahoe road, prosecutors said. DNA was also recovered from Andersen’s body.The murders went unsolved for decades until Parabon NanoLabs helped investigators use genetic genealogy to solve the case by submitting the unknown killer’s DNA to a genealogy database and building a family tree around the results. That led investigators to zero in on three brothers who have since died, the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office said in a Monday news release.DNA was collected from the child of one of the brothers. DNA was also retrieved off of a toothbrush that belonged to that brother, prosecutors said.Further testing confirmed that the DNA of Joseph Holt — who died in 2014 — matched the DNA found on Rainey’s shirt and Andersen’s body, prosecutors said.The novel investigative technique of genetic genealogy takes an unknown killer’s DNA from a crime scene and identifies the suspect through his or her family members, who voluntarily submit their DNA to genealogy databases.The first public arrest through genetic genealogy was the April 2018 identification of the suspected “Golden State Killer.”Since then, genetic genealogy has helped identify more than three dozen suspects, according to CeCe Moore, chief genetic genealogist with Parabon NanoLabs, which has worked on the majority of the cases. Just this month, suspects were identified in the 1993 murder of a 20-year-old Alaska woman and the 1973 strangling of an 11-year-old California girl.Meanwhile, Holt, the alleged killer, spent decades under the radar in Northern California.Holt, who was born in 1947, grew up in San Jose and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, prosecutors said.He moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1974 and started working in real estate, the district attorney’s office said.Holt lived less than two miles away from where each of the bodies were found, prosecutors said, according to The Sacramento Bee.He died in 2014 and was not identified as a suspect until 2018, prosecutors said.Authorities are investigating whether Holt is responsible for other unsolved crimes, according to prosecutors.Holt’s family has fully cooperated with the investigation, prosecutors added.
