Forget the Bitcoin price and tech stocks! I’d invest in cheap UK shares now

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The rising popularity of Bitcoin and tech stocks may leave many investors doubting whether cheap UK shares can deliver high returns. After all, in many cases they are priced at low levels because of near-term threats to their financial performances.However, history shows that no asset price ever moves up in perpetuity. Therefore, now could be the right time to avoid the virtual currency and overvalued technology companies in favour of undervalued FTSE 350 shares. They may offer less risk and higher long-term reward prospects due to their lower valuations.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…Buying cheap UK shares for the long runA strategy of buying cheap UK shares has generally been successful in the past. For example, look at investors who purchased companies while they traded at low prices following the tech bubble and the global financial crisis. They are likely to have benefited from their subsequent recoveries. While a similar outcome may seem unlikely for companies that face tough operating conditions at the present time, an economic recovery is likely to take place in the coming years.As such, stocks such as WPP, Standard Life Aberdeen and Taylor Wimpey could provide impressive total returns in the long run. All three companies have suffered from the impact of coronavirus on the economy. However, they appear to have the right strategies and the financial strength required to survive. Furthermore, their share price declines over the past year suggest that they now offer good value for money on a relative basis. This may translate into high returns as the economy mounts a recovery from its present challenges.Building a diverse portfolioOf course, cheap UK shares can be priced at low levels for good reason. They may, for example, have weak financial positions or lack a competitive advantage. As such, it is important to try and weed out unattractive businesses through analysing their balance sheets, market positions and strategies in order to invest in the most attractive companies.Furthermore, the future is always uncertain. Therefore, even the most appealing stocks can experience more challenging operating conditions than expected. This increases the appeal of a diverse portfolio, versus a concentrated one, since it means less risk and potentially higher returns. Many companies can benefit from a long-term economic recovery. However, they must survive the short term before they can deliver a turnaround.Avoiding Bitcoin and tech stocksWhile cheap UK shares could deliver high long-term returns, the prospects for today’s popular assets may be less appealing. Tech stocks may have excellent business models and sound financial prospects, but buying any asset at a high price can equate to a poor investment. Similarly, Bitcoin’s track record shows that price rises can be followed by disappointing performances should investor sentiment change.Therefore, now could be the right time to buy undervalued shares in high-quality companies. Their fundamentals suggest that in many cases they offer high long-term return prospects as the economy recovers. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Death row inmates’ first-person stories featured in prison ministry’s tour…

Photo: Kathy McGregor[Episcopal News Service] An Arkansas Episcopal congregation’s prison storytelling ministry will embark next month on a brief tour, visiting Episcopal churches from Missouri to Texas to stage dramatic readings of death row inmates’ first-person stories.Prison Story Project, founded by Kathy McGregor at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fayetteville, spent the summer of 2016 helping 11 inmates write about their lives and the experience of awaiting execution at the Varner Supermax prison in Grady, Arkansas. The inmates’ stories are collected in “On the Row,” a script for six actors. The script’s incarcerated authors also formed the audience for its first performance on Oct. 8, 2016.Six months later, two of the 11 contributors to “On the Row” were executed by the state of Arkansas.The executions drew national attention as part of the state’s rush to carry out eight executions in April 2017 before Arkansas’ stock of lethal injection drugs was to expire. Four of the eight men were put to death, while the other four executions were postponed amid vocal opposition from anti-death penalty activists, including Arkansas Episcopalians. The Episcopal Church has long taken a public stance against the death penalty.Although the executions are referenced at the beginning of “On the Row,” McGregor told Episcopal News Service that the inmates’ words are presented mostly as they were written, before anyone knew of the state’s plans for expedited executions. The script is structured to build a compelling narrative arch, and the stories avoid any overt arguments in favor of abolishing the death penalty.“We’re not political about that. We just let the words of the inmates speak for themselves,” McGregor said, yet the project seeks to show the humanity behind those words in ways that may surprise listeners. “The audiences should come prepared to feel changed at the end of it,” she said.The Episcopal Church’s opposition to capital punishment is well established, dating back more than 60 years. General Convention has passed numerous resolutions on the issue. A resolution adopted last year calls for all death row inmates’ sentences to be reduced, orders letters to that effect be sent to all governors of states where the death penalty is legal, and enlists bishops in those states to take up greater advocacy.Prison Story Project makes clear that readings of “On the Row” are presented in the context of The Episcopal Church’s ongoing advocacy. It is promoting the upcoming tour as “a call to action … for parishes and dioceses to explore and understand the reasons for our opposition; the inequity as applied to minorities, the poor and those who cannot afford adequate legal representation; the contribution to continued violence, and the violation of our Baptismal Covenant.”The number of executions nationwide has dropped steadily since 1999, from a high of 98 that year to 20 in 2016, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. Arkansas is one of 30 states with the death penalty, including all of the states on the Prison Story Project’s four-city tour – Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.The June performances were “the easiest bookings I ever had to do,” McGregor said. The host churches, listed here, didn’t hesitate to open their doors for readings of “On the Row”:St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Kansas City, Missouri, on June 13St. James’ Episcopal Church, Wichita, Kansas, on June 14Christ Church Episcopal, Tulsa, Oklahoma, on June 15Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration, Dallas, Texas, on June 16St. Paul’s in Kansas City has been active in a range of social justice ministries that emphasize giving a voice to the voiceless in society, the Rev. Stan Runnels said in an interview with ENS, so it seemed natural to host a performance of “On the Row” in the church’s parish hall.“We believe very strongly in the power of the narrative and the power of the voice of the marginalized to tell their stories better than anybody else,” said Runnels, who is rector at St. Paul’s.Runnels spent four years in the late 1980s as a volunteer chaplain to death row inmates in Mississippi. He had just recently been ordained as a priest, and he experienced a “deep monasticism” on death row that had a profound effect on his own spiritual growth.“I found death row inmates to be remarkably honest about some of the deep questions of life and faith and spirituality,” he said. “Because there’s nothing like knowing the day you’re going to die, or the day the state wants to kill you, to grapple with the deep questions of life.”When McGregor founded Prison Story Project in 2012, her initial focus was on holding writing workshops at a correctional center for women in northwest Arkansas. A second class of inmates in 2013 produced stories that were compiled in a script titled “Stories From the Inside Out,” with performances in the prison and out in the community.From the start, the hope was that writing would allow the inmates to face the truth of their lives and find redemption, McGregor said. The “outside” performances of the inmates’ words achieved a second goal of giving the public a sense for the real lives of those locked away out of sight.After several subsequent classes, McGregor and her team turned their focus to death row. They reached out to officials at Varner in 2015, and after months of conversations, they received permission to begin working with death row inmates in May 2016.“We were a little nervous, but it didn’t take long for us to settle in,” McGregor said.Out of 34 inmates on death row at the time, 11 volunteered and were selected for the project. McGregor and the project’s creative writing director met with the inmates once a month and followed up by email, giving them prompts to begin their writing and coaching them on techniques. Write from the heart, McGregor told them.The written compositions were then shared with the project’s theater director, Troy Schremmer, who suggested additional prompts to elicit more detail from the inmates. When Schremmer had enough material, he compiled the inmates’ writings into the narrative that became “On the Row.”Six actors visited Varner for their first staged reading in front of the inmates, who were separated in individual cells because they are not allowed direct contact with each other, McGregor said.The first public performances were held at the end of October 2016 at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Additional performances were scheduled in 2017, but McGregor and her team didn’t learn until February that the state planned to execute eight prisoners in 10 days at the end of April.Four of the “On the Row” writers were among those scheduled for execution. Jack Jones, sentenced for the 1995 rape and strangulation of a 34-year-old woman, was executed on April 24. Kenneth Williams was executed April 27 after killing a university cheerleader in 1998 and then killing another person after escaping from prison in 1999. Last-minute stays of execution were granted for the other two inmates who had worked with McGregor’s team.The “On the Row” tour in June is backed by several grants, including from the Episcopal Evangelism Society. A second tour is planned for October around Arkansas. In addition, Prison Story Project will record one of the performances for a video that will allow McGregor to hold screenings and question-and-answer sessions without requiring actors and directors to join her each time.After getting to know the inmates personally, McGregor said she is committed to sharing their stories to all who will listen, “until they abolish the death penalty in every state.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

How Wall Street protest opened door to organizing anti-war soldiers

first_imgApril 12, 1966. Fifteen young women and men slipped into the New York Stock Exchange. They didn’t belong there. They had no money to invest in stocks, nor did they care if the market was down or up that day.They had another purpose. They had informed a few reporters that they were planning something dramatic, asking the reporters to keep the action secret. The young people hoped to make their move before police or guards could stop them.Although a war was on and both Vietnamese and U.S. troops were dying, the only weapons these youth carried were leaflets and banners. They were sending a message.On the trading floor, hundreds of brokers were staring up at the Big Board that showed up-to-date information on all the important stocks. The 15 young people moved to the edge of the balcony that overlooked the arena of frantic trading. On a signal, some threw leaflets 30 feet down to the floor while three others unfurled a banner right across the Big Board.‘Big Firms Get Rich, GIs Die’A sudden silence was followed by a collective howl from below as the brokers read “Stop the War in Vietnam” and, in bigger letters, “Big Firms Get Rich, GIs Die.”“GI” was the popular term for a lower-ranking enlisted or conscripted person in the U.S. Armed Forces. Its use began in the 1930s, apparently from the military jargon referring to all sorts of equipment: “General Issue.” By 1966, some 200,000 of these GIs, mostly from the Army and Marines, were in Vietnam fighting a war against the Vietnamese people.Lyndon Baines Johnson was president of the United States. Following a supposed confrontation between North Vietnamese patrol boats and U.S. destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin in August 1964 that was later exposed as faked by the Pentagon, Johnson gained Congress’s authority to escalate U.S. intervention in the war. Johnson planned to increase the number of U.S. troops there to 380,000 by year’s end and finally to 540,000.Toward the end of March 1966, there were peace marches in New York, Washington, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and San Francisco, numbering at most in the tens of thousands. Their dominant slogans were pacifist: “End the war,” “Negotiate Now.”The young people at the Stock Exchange had a clearer view of the war, shaped by the gut revulsion they felt when seeing photos of Vietnamese peasants burned to death by napalm bombs that Dow Chemical manufactured. They knew the Vietnamese were determined to fight until they won. They were also sympathetic to the rank-and-file U.S. troops who were drafted or induced to enlist and then sent to die so that the stockholders of companies like Dow Chemical would grow richer.The slogan, “Big Firms Get Rich, GIs Die,” reflected an ideology. The ideology condemned the U.S. war against Vietnam as a bosses’ war. It was fought for their profits. These were the profits of the military-industrial complex, but also the profits of all the bankers and superrich who wanted to keep exploiting workers all over the world.The GIs were working-class youth used as cannon fodder; that is, they were sent to kill and die to expand the interests of the rich.The slogan’s delivery also expressed an attitude: In your face. The Stock Exchange traders picked up on this attitude and, taking no chances, they soon had a hard, transparent wall installed on the balcony to separate future visitors from those trading in the blood money of the big firms.Implicit in the slogan was an approach toward the GIs themselves. These young protesters were active in Youth Against War and Fascism, the youth organization of Workers World Party. They considered the ordinary soldiers and sailors — Air Force, Coast Guard, Marines and Women’s Army Corps members; and WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service) — to be their class brothers and sisters.In April 1966, most of the YAWF members could not imagine how quickly so many GIs would break with their early anti-communist indoctrination and resist the war machine. Nor did these youth realize how soon they would begin to help organize the American Servicemen’s Union.Breaking the chain of commandOver the next nine years, hundreds of dissident, mainly anti-war newspapers were published by GI groups. Half a dozen were regularly published newspapers with four to eight tabloid pages. The most consistent was the newspaper of the American Servicemen’s Union, “The Bond,” which was published monthly for most of the period from 1967 to 1974.Dozens of smaller sheets were published by ASU chapters. They all reflected a widespread and heartfelt rebellion, as did the many hundreds of other newspapers and newsletters.Even a voice from the Pentagon had to admit that the GI resistance had become an enormous problem for the generals. A little more than five years after that Wall Street demonstration, a provocative article entitled “The Collapse of the Armed Forces,” by military historian Marine Lt. Col. Robert Debs Heinl, was to show how much the GIs had broken with military indoctrination.In the article, Heinl wrote, “By every conceivable indicator, our army that now remains in Vietnam is in a state approaching collapse, with individual units avoiding or having refused combat, murdering their officers and noncommissioned officers, drug-ridden, and dispirited where not near mutinous.” (Armed Forces Journal, June 7, 1971)By 1968, hundreds of Black troops were refusing riot-control duty in U.S. cities. By 1970, whole units on active duty repeatedly refused to go on offensive missions in Vietnam.If pushed too hard by their officers, sometimes one or more of the troops would kill the officer. This practice gave birth to a new verb, “to frag,” because often the elimination of the officer was carried out by rolling a fragmentation grenade into his tent. In 1970, exactly 109 fraggings occurred in Vietnam, according to Lt. Col. Heinl.Within a year of the Stock Exchange protest, many of the 15 young people had turned their ideology and attitude into concrete acts of solidarity with the lower ranks of the armed forces. They were protagonists in this history of the struggle by GIs and their supporters to resist the war within their own organization — the American Servicemen’s Union.This article is adapted from a chapter in Catalinotto’s forthcoming book, “Turn the Guns Around: Mutinies, Soldier ­Revolts and Revolutions.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Man pleads guilty to illegally making bullets sold to Las Vegas mass shooter

first_imgMelissa Kopka/iStock(NEW YORK) — An Arizona man pleaded guilty Tuesday to illegally making bullets sold to the Las Vegas mass shooter. Douglas Haig, 57, pleaded guilty to engaging in the business of manufacturing ammunition without a license, according to the Department of Justice.From July 2016 to several weeks after the Oct. 1, 2017 massacre, Haig ran an unlicensed ammo manufacturing business from his home, according to the Justice Department.He promoted and sold his ammo at gun shows, including in Nevada, prosecutors said.Haig, of Mesa, Arizona, is not accused of playing a direct role in the Oct. 1, 2017, Las Vegas mass shooting.On that night, Stephen Paddock opened fire from a Las Vegas hotel room, targeting concertgoers below at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, authorities said. Haig’s bullets were found in the hotel room.Fifty-eight people were killed and hundreds more were injured in what became the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history. One woman shot in the attack died just this past Friday. It was not immediately clear if her death was related to her injuries.Haig is set to be sentenced on Feb. 19, 2020. He faces a maximum of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to the Justice Department. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
