FTSE 100 blue-chip royalty stocks are going cheap in this market crash.2020 represents one of the best buying opportunities of a lifetime. When others are fearful, it’s your time to be greedy. I think the canny investor should start nibbling at quality companies with extremely good long-term prospects.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…That means those with impeccable balance sheets, low debt, hefty cash balances, and a strong competitive advantage.Blue MondiOne of these is Mondi (LSE:MNDI). When stock markets were flying ever upwards in early 2020 — what we now know was the tail end of an 11-year bull run — it was far too expensive for new investors to consider.If we look at those lucky or smart enough to have bought Mondi shares in 2008 when banks were crashing and panic was everywhere, you will see what I mean. The share price rose 1,060% in 10 years, from 191.5p to a peak of 2221.5p.The Mondi share price is now 24% cheaper than it was at the turn of 2020.Today’s price-to-earnings ratio is down at just 8.4 with a dividend yield of 5.69%. I call that incredible value for a company that grew its earnings per share by 23% last year. On average, EPS has improved by 12% a year since 2015.I’m now finding FTSE 100 bargains in companies I never thought I’d be able to buy at good value prices.What Mondi doesMondi is a paper and packaging company. You’d be forgiven for not knowing it. It employs nearly 30,000 people and has offices in 30 countries. It’s not a consumer brand and therefore not a household name. It won’t see the same trading volume as Lloyds, 11%-yielding oil major Royal Dutch Shell, or BT.It manages forests and a vast network of paper mills and manufacturing centres.In its recent annual report, chief executive Andrew King said the company delivered a “robust and solid operational” performance “against a backdrop of challenging trading conditions“.This was aided by “strong cost control and a good contribution from acquisitions and capital investment projects“.Mondi quietly chugs away in the background, never making flashy headlines. But it makes more than a billion euros in profit a year and will be in business long after you and I have retired to our islands in the sun.How to play itIt’s too early to call the bottom of the market. By 19 March the FTSE 100 was down 35% compared to the start of the year. The overall index could well fall further as UK recession bites.But for a long-term, buy-and-hold investor that’s not particularly important.Usually income investors buying stable companies with great long-term prospects can only achieve one of two benefits. They can either get steady dividend yields to reinvest, or rapidly rising share prices. The 2020 stock market crash offers the unique opportunity to get your hands on both.The opportunities to truly be greedy when others are fearful only come around maybe once every 10 years.I don’t have £15,000 on hand right now. But then I’m not trying to time the market with one big lump sum. What I do have is £1,250 a month I’m drip-feeding into my preferred bargain FTSE 100 shares. And Mondi will be one of my first purchases. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Tom Rodgers | Thursday, 26th March, 2020 | More on: MNDI 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.

Image source: Getty Images These cheap stocks yield 5% and above! Should you buy them for your ISA? In normal times, Belvoir Group (LSE: BLV) could be considered a wise place for ISA investors to lock their money up. The property giant has grown profits every year for almost a quarter of a century.And following the recent stock market crash, it looks very attractively priced. Not only does it carry a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of around 10 times, the AIM stock also boasts a 5.3% dividend yield for 2020.5G 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…Belvoir is a share loaded with near-term risk though. It’s why the lettings and estate agent has decided to axe last year’s final dividend in recent weeks. With agencies shutting up shop amid the UK-wide lockdown, the property market has fallen off a cliff. According to estate agency Knight Frank the number of house sales will tumble 38% year-on-year in 2020, to 526,000.It didn’t give a forecast for 2021. But with economic conditions expected to implode, a prolonged and painful drop in the housing market is clearly quite possible. For these reasons I’m happy to ignore Belvoir’s attractive paper valuations and go ISA shopping elsewhere.A better ISA buy?Could Kingfisher (LSE: KGF) prove a wiser place to invest your ISA cash? Sure, it also scrapped last year’s final dividend in response to the coronavirus breakout. However, City forecasts for the current financial year (to January 2021) result in a gigantic 6% dividend yield. The DIY colossus carries a mega-low prospective P/E ratio of 10 times too.The FTSE 100 retailer has been in trouble for a long, long time. Tough retail conditions in the UK and France, allied with a botched transformation plan, have caused like-for-like sales to plummet in recent years. Admittedly though, trading has been a bit stronger of late. Underlying revenues dropped 1.5% in the last fiscal year. But in the final quarter, corresponding turnover grew 1.7% year-on-year.Steer clear of the pain train!Can Kingfisher keep this positive momentum going? It’d take a braver ISA investor than me to suggest so, given the economic catastrophe that hovers above all of its markets. It’s likely that consumer spending on paintbrushes, drills and garden furniture will topple as GDP falls off a cliff. The aforementioned collapse in the housing market will especially hit the Footsie firm hard.In that Knight Frank study, it’s estimated spending on DIY and renovations will topple by a staggering £7.9bn in 2020. The estate agency isn’t alone in predicting tough times for the likes of Kingfisher though. In a recent report, Alvarez & Marsal predicted UK sales of DIY and gardening products will drop 2.9% this year. The business consultancy had previously been expecting growth of 1.8%.No wonder Kingfisher’s share price has dropped 34% during the past two months. Belvoir’s drop has been even worse though, plummeting an eye-watering 42%. It’s difficult to envisage either of these two dividend stocks rebounding in value any time soon either.In my opinion, both shares carry too much risk for ISA investors today. I think they should be avoided. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Mark Richardson announced.Stanford, a postulant to the priesthood from the Diocese of Oregon, earned a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Notre Dame, a Master of Theology degree from Harvard Divinity School and has completed coursework for Doctorate of Theology at Harvard. At CDSP, Stanford is enrolled in the Certificate of Anglican Studies program and will work on his dissertation.The new Giving Tuesday scholarship, one of several new scholarships that CDSP offers for 2015-2016, was made possible by CDSP donors who participated in Giving Tuesday, an initiative that encourages people to give online on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. In 2014, CDSP’s Giving Tuesday raised more than $10,000.“When we initiated Giving Tuesday at CDSP, an idea originating with [CDSP’s development director] Patrick Delahunt, we had no idea what to expect,” said Richardson. “It is exciting to know that the generosity of those who responded will have this kind of impact on a student’s life. We’re delighted to welcome Iain to CDSP, and grateful for the generosity of the donors who made our new Giving Tuesday scholarship possible. This is just one of several new scholarships now available from CDSP, thanks to the extraordinary generosity of alumni and donors who have contributed to funds through estate plans and endowed gifts.”Other new CDSP scholarship opportunities include the full-tuition Bishop’s Scholarships, which are given on the nomination of students’ diocesan bishops; the Presidential Scholarship, which includes tuition, room and board, meal plan and books for an exceptional leader age 35 or under; and Excellence in Ministry scholarships that include full tuition and a stipend.For his part, Stanford is thrilled to be in Berkeley. “One of the opportunities of being a student at CDSP is I get to go and experience different communities in the area. It’s a chance for me to get to know what’s available on the West Coast. I have an ability and opportunity just to experience the breadth of what the Episcopal Church can be.”To learn more about scholarship and financial aid opportunities at CDSP, contact the Rev.

Reply Please enter your name here 1 COMMENT November 30, 2017 at 8:36 am You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here By Ashley Whillans and first published on theconversation.comEver felt like your peers have more pals than you do?These days, with the rise of social media apps like Facebook and Instagram, it is easier than ever to benchmark the number of “friends” you have against your peers.So, if you find yourself wondering how your social networks compare with other people’s, our latest research, published in Personality & Social Psychology Bulletin, suggests that you are far from alone. Furthermore, we found that believing that your peers have more pals than you do – even if demonstrably false – can be harmful to your health.‘Tis human to compareDecades of research in psychology suggest that social comparisons are a fundamental human tendency. We compare ourselves with others to evaluate and understand our abilities, our social standing, and even our own feelings.When making social comparisons, people generally see themselves coming out on top – or at least above average. That is, they are often overconfident about their abilities, rating themselves above average in health, attractiveness, and intelligence.Yet, there is at least one domain where people tend to think that they are doing worse than their peers: emotional experiences.Previous research by one of our colleagues, Alex Jordan at the Harvard Medical School, found that people underestimate how often their peers experience negative emotions, like depression or stress, and overestimate how often they experience positive ones, like happiness, pride, and hope.One reason for the latter tendency is that people also generally overestimate how socially connected others are. After all, being socially connected is one of the most important predictors of happiness. It is therefore important to understand whether beliefs about doing worse than our peers extend to social belonging and to understand how these beliefs arise.Looking for ‘friends’? Evan Lorne/Shutterstock.comThe rise of social mediaSocial media is making it a lot harder to avoid comparing our own connectedness with that of our peers.Since the inception of Facebook in 2004, more than a billion people have created Facebook accounts, and today, its website is the most visited in the world. Americans spend about 56 billion minutes on Facebook each month.While some of this time is spent actively messaging other people, the typical user uses the majority of his or her time on Facebook observing other people without posting – sometimes called “lurking.” Stated differently, people spend most of their time on social media gathering information about their peers’ lives.And, social media posts are predominately focused on projecting the most positive versions of ourselves. Given the popularity of Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and LinkedIn, it is nearly impossible to avoid learning about our peers’ accomplishments. As a result, it is also nearly impossible to avoid using this information as a benchmark to compare our lives with those of our peers.We believe others have more friendsTo examine the beliefs that people have about their peers’ social lives and how they affect well-being, we surveyed first-year students during their transition to college life at the University of British Columbia, a large public institution in Vancouver, Canada.Across two similar studies with a total of 1,488 participants, we asked two key questions: How many friends do you have at university? And how many friends do you think other first-year students have? We also asked them to estimate the percentage of time that both themselves and their peers had spent socializing with new friends at the university in the past seven days.A surprising share of students believed that their peers had more friends and spent more time socializing than they themselves did.In our first study, 48 percent of first-year students believed their peers had more friends, whereas only 31 percent believed the reverse.In our second study, the gap was even more pronounced: More than twice as many students believed that other first-years had more friends than they did rather than the other way around – 55 percent to 26 percent. Students also believed that their peers spent 24 percent of their time socializing with new friends at university as compared with the 20 percent for their personal estimate.How this undermines happinessIn our second study, students also reported on their happiness and loneliness. To assess happiness and loneliness, students indicated their agreement with statements like “the conditions of my life are excellent” and “I see myself as a loner,” respectively.Students who believed that their peers were doing better socially reported lower levels of life satisfaction and greater loneliness than students who thought that they had more friends.Importantly, these results were stable even after we accounted for the number of friends that students had. In other words, even when students had an above-average number of friends, thinking their peers had more friends than they did undermined their well-being.Viewing pictures of peers having a good time on Facebook can make some people feel like they don’t belong. Rawpixel.com/Shutterstock.comSo why do we think this way?Our research suggests that the public nature of social activities can lead people to think that their peers are doing better socially than they are.Since social activities like eating or studying with friends often happen in public where they are easily seen, students likely overestimate how often these activities occur in their peers’ lives.Social media also plays a role. In research that we published earlier this year, first-year students were more likely to feel like they didn’t belong at university after viewing highly social photos of their peers on Facebook.We have not yet collected data to see how common these feelings and beliefs are outside of college. However, given how common feelings of loneliness are when people move to a new city or start a new job, it is possible that these social misperceptions could occur anytime people move to a new social environment.A silver liningOur study found evidence that these perceptions can shift over time. When we followed up with a subset of students and asked them identical questions four to five months later, we observed two key findings:Later in the academic year, fewer students believed that other students had more friends than they did. These findings suggest that the tendency to see others as more social can change over time, potentially as people get to know their peers better and realize that those peers do not actually have more friends than they do.We also found evidence that these beliefs – in moderation – might not be uniformly bad. Students who initially believed that other students had a few more friends than they did had themselves made more friends when we checked in with them down the road. This suggests that people who feel slightly but not hopelessly, behind their peers might be more motivated to seek out new friendships. After making more friends, people are less likely to believe that others have more friends than they do.If you have ever felt like everyone else is more connected than you are, there is a good chance you are not alone. Yet, if you use these feelings as motivation to reach out to a new colleague or grab lunch with a friend you haven’t seen in a while, this belief doesn’t always have to undermine happiness. In fact, it could help you become more connected.Ashley Whillans is an Assistant Professor at the Harvard Business School. She studies the complex relationships between time, money, and happiness and conducts research with non-profits, companies, and the government with the broad goal of putting science “to work” to solve real-world challenges. I often observe people & their connection with their phones. It is interesting to see how a group of young people will sit together & each individual is on their phone, typing; talking; laughing & managing a conversation with their peers; I call it social multi-tasking. In the last 4 years, I have been following my family & friends, near & far via social media. Admittedly, over the early decades working in the profession of police work, feeling left out of the social crowd came with territory. Fast forward to where I stand today, I’m still on the outside looking in; keeping up with my family & friends near & far via social media; hitting ‘like’ & letting them know by posting “great to see you are having a good time…” Truth is every other weekend, I get to spend quality time with my only 2 grandchildren. And the best part is they take possession of my phone to play their games and just like the young people I mentioned above; my grandkids manage to play their games; watch Netflix; u-tube; all while they share what’s going in their daily lives with me; yes, hanging out with Grandma. These tender years go by quick; so as long as I can be in their small circle, I’m in. I do make the effort to reach out to my family & friends to connect & nurture those relationships important to me.

The communication may be funny but the message is a serious one about the best way to combat global poverty.”The campaign was created by advertising agency Campbell Doyle Dye and will run on television, radio, press and online.The television ads were made by the production company Godman and directed by Tim Kirkby, the same team that produced the BBC spoof science series ‘Look Around You’.The ads follow a similar style to the programmes with a series of ‘scientific’ experiments comparing things that multiply and things that don’t.The print ads use a simple strip of graphics to illustrate that the money collected during Christian Aid Week is invested in things that multiply. One of the print ads features the strapline: ‘We go forth and multiply.’The strapline ‘You add, we multiply’ along with chicken examples is also used as part of an integrated campaign in church materials, on the charity’s website, on the Christian Aid Week red envelopes for donations, and it will be used in millions of direct marketing messages after Christian Aid Week.The Christian Aid Week website includes an amusing interactive virtual Big Cow Farm which illustrates the benefits that one cow can bring a family. Tagged with: Individual giving Christian Aid’s new advertising campaign for this year’s Christian Aid Week aims to challenge the traditional style of Third World charity advertising.Under the strapline ‘You add, we multiply’, the advertising campaign uses humour, handwritten typeface, child-like illustrations and soft colours to engage audiences. Christian Aid is aiming to demonstrate that it invests donations in long-term solutions to poverty rather than just short-term handouts.Christian Aid Week is the charity’s major annual fundraising drive and runs from 15 to 21 May 2005. Last year, £14.7 million was raised during the week to support the charity’s work in more than 50 of the world’s poorest countries. Advertisement
Reporters Without Borders has written to the European Union’s 25 foreign ministers asking them to raise the issue of Eritrea’s imprisoned journalists at a meeting of the General Affairs and External Relations Council on 12 December in Brussels, which will focus on Africa, and calling for the EU to do everything possible to obtain their release.“A development last month served as a reminder of how merciless President Issaias Afeworki’s government can be towards those it views as its opponents,” the letter said. “Dawit Isaac, a journalist with Swedish and Eritrean dual nationality and founder of the now-banned weekly Setit, was released on 19 November after four years in prison. He was able to telephone his wife and friends who have found refuge in Sweden, telling them he had just been freed from Karcheli prison in Asmara and would soon be with them. But to everyone’s amazement, the authorities returned him to prison two days later, on 21 November, for still unclear reasons.”Isaac, who has had Swedish nationality since 1992, was arrested on 23 September 2001 in the course of the major police raids that followed the suspension of all civil liberties five days earlier. Now aged 41, married and the father of three children, he was one of ten newspaper publishers, editors and leading journalists to be rounded up along with politicians who had criticised the government.“Isaac’s story suggests Eritrea is plunging headlong into further repression in which its people will be the only ones to suffer,” the letter continued. “The European Union has the ability to make the government in Asmara understand that this course is unacceptable. For this reason, we urge the European foreign ministers to do everything in their power to obtain justice, at least, for these unfortunate journalists and help Eritrea emerge from the darkness in which it is sinking further year by year.”Independent since 1993, Eritrea is Africa’s youngest country. For the past four years, it has also been the continent’s biggest prison for the press. At least 13 journalists are being held in undisclosed locations somewhere in Eritrea without ever having appeared in court or been able to talk to a lawyer or contact their families. The regime claims they are traitors, Ethiopian spies or deserters. It is not known if they are still alive. Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home?

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum said “From the perusal of order passed on May 28, 2020 basically this suo-motu PIL was initiated to deal with the peculiar situation created due to the spread of coronavirus. Larger number of orders were passed for taking care of the situation arising due to partial closure of this court, essentially for the purpose of extending maximum benefit to litigants. Considering the fact that the situation has considerably increased, we do not think any further orders are required to be passed in the Public interest litigation.” The bench recorded its appreciation to amicus curiae and state and central government advocates who appeared in the matter and assisted the court to pass various orders. It said “While we close this petition we must appreciate the services rendered by Senior advocate Uday Holla and Senior Advocate C V Nagesh, who were appointed as amicus curiae. We must also note that Dhyan Chinnappa Additional Advocate General ably assisted by advocate Vikram Huilgol and Additional Solicitor General M B Nargund ably assisted by Advocate M N Kumar, have rendered valuable assistance to the court. It is only because of their assistance and valuable contribution that this court could pass various procedural orders, for streamlining the procedure during partial functioning of the courts (High court and District courts).” As per an recent Standard Operating procedure issued by the High Court on January 12, normal functioning of the Courts as existed prior to 15th March 2020 in all the Districts except the districts namely—Bengaluru Urban, 2) Bengaluru Rural, 3) Chikkaballapura, 4) D.K. Mangaluru, 5) Mysuru, 6) Shivamogga and 7) Tumakuru, is restored.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
