Edward Sheldon, CFA | Wednesday, 21st October, 2020 | More on: DGE Image source: Getty Images ‘Britain’s Warren Buffett’ says this FTSE 100 stock offers an “incredible opportunity”. I agree In recent months, most high-quality FTSE 100 stocks have rebounded to where they were trading before Covid-19 hammered the stock market in February and March. Unilever, for example, has climbed above the 4,700p level it was at in February. Similarly, Reckitt Benckiser, another top-quality business, has climbed well above the 6,500p level it was trading pre-Covid.There are some high-quality FTSE 100 stocks, however, that have failed to climb back to their 2020 highs. Alcoholic beverages champion Diageo (LSE: DGE) is one such stock. Its share price has recovered a little since late March but remains well below its 2020 highs of around 3,300p.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…Portfolio manager Nick Train – who’s sometimes called ‘Britain’s Warren Buffett’ – believes Diageo’s share price weakness has created a fantastic opportunity for long-term investors. I agree with Train. I think buying Diageo shares now, while they’re out of favour, could turn out to be a very smart move.Nick Train sees an opportunityIn a recent interview with Morningstar, Train discussed his holding in Diageo. The reason he likes the FTSE 100 stock and sees it as an “important holding” is that the company owns a large collection of well-known, trusted brands.“I don’t think there’s any debate about this. Diageo is the best collection of alcoholic beverage brands in one company that exists anywhere in the world. We’re lucky that it’s a UK company,” he said.Acknowledging that Diageo shares are down around a quarter from their peak, Train said that he believes investors now have an “incredible opportunity” to invest in brands of the calibre of Johnnie Walker, Tanqueray, and Guinness. He believes these kinds of well-known brands aren’t only going to be around next year, but also in 50 years.“That kind of permanence and durability… that’s how you protect wealth and you continue to get rich steadily,” he said.A top FTSE 100 stock I’d buy nowI fully agree. In my view, Diageo’s share price weakness has created a fantastic buying opportunity. Recently, I’ve been adding to my position in the FTSE 100 stock.I don’t expect Diageo shares to rebound quickly. The company faces plenty of short-term challenges due to Covid-19. With bars and pubs unable to operate normally, ‘on-trade’ sales are likely to be muted for a while. More lockdowns could create further challenges.However, I’m convinced that in 10 years’ time, Covid-19 will be a distant memory and Diageo’s sales and profits will be much higher than they are today (another 750m consumers will be able to afford Diageo’s brands by then). My view is that in 2030, today’s share price will look like an absolute bargain.Analysts expect Diageo to generate earnings per share of 125.1p for the year ending 30 June 2022. That puts DGE on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 21. A dividend payout of 70p is expected this year, which equates to a prospective yield of about 2.7%. I think these are attractive metrics.If you’re a long-term investor, I think that buying now, while the FTSE 100 company is experiencing some short-term challenges, could turn out to be a very smart move.

Full caps for England and the Lions are also on the agenda for Watson, who cites contrasting fly-halves Jonny Wilkinson and Quade Cooper as his idols.Before all that, however, is the chance to impress at Twickenham with some of the game’s greats. Flying in: Anthony Watson scores the winning try as England U18 beat Wales in the FIFA/AER Championship semi-finalBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorTHIS WEEKEND’S Heroes Rugby Challenge will see many legends of the sport take to the Twickenham turf, but it’s also worth looking out for a rising star in the English game.Anthony Watson is just 17 but he’s been picked to line up alongside Will Greenwood, Serge Betsen and Malcolm O’Kelly in the Northern Hemisphere side – and big things are expected of the teenager.A wing/full-back in the London Irish Academy, he made his debut for the Exiles against Newcastle in September to become the youngest player to represent the club in the Premiership.He’s played for England at U16 and U18 level – impressing for the latter aged 16 as they finished second at this year’s FIRA/AER Championship.

Villa Fendi is conceived as a place of living where the experience of interior space subtly interacts with its beautiful  contextual setting. Located on a lot with very privileged views and a fortunate orientation, the site itself became the best design tool as we constructed each space to uniquely receive light and engage with the existing landscape. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWith a distinctly shaped lot opening towards the water, we worked to design exterior volumes and interior spaces that maximized the house’s connection to its outside while providing ideally distributed public and private spaces within. Save this picture!© Emilio CollavinoA simple tectonic form was devised and oriented to maximize water views and terracing. Volumes of specific program were developed as extrusions or cantilevered objects to express notions of weightlessness while  emphasizing connections to the outside. Save this picture!© Emilio CollavinoAt the first level, a spacious Entry Gallery is designed as a receiving room with carved out stairs to the second level and views of the water. The Entry Gallery room leads directly to large Living and Entertaining rooms that open up to a generous covered terrace with unobstructed water views. Within the second level, a private living space serves as a place to gather and pause between Bedrooms, a Reading Terrace and interior access to the Guest Suite.

Three in four consumers still donate money or time to charities, with just one in ten consumers saying that they have stopped giving since the credit crunch and one in five respondents giving less as a result of economic difficulties.A quarter of those surveyed said that they donated at least once a month, while another 25% gave once a year.The survey found that the UK was “the most charitable nation” with 77% of respondents giving money to a good cause, closely followed by Spain (76%) and the Netherlands (72%).In France 66% said they gave money to charities, and in Germany the figure was 61%.Britons preferred to give by street collecting boxes rather than in response to direct mail or email appeals.Across Europe more than 75% of respondents believed that charities should invest less in advertising and instead spend the money on their cause. Two thirds of all respondents stated that advertising did not affect their decision to donate and more than 20% said that advertising even puts them off giving altogether.Celebrity supporters of charities have little impact, according to the survey. Nearly 70% of all respondents said a well known representative would not affect their decision to donate, with 15% claiming that celebrities would actually put them off giving.Volker Andresen, European Marketing Director at SSI, said that it was encouraging “that although people are cutting back on everyday expenditure, Europeans won’t be scaling down their charitable donations.”SSI surveyed 1,650 consumers who are members of its OpinionWorld online communities in the UK (330), Spain (330), Germany (330), France (330) and The Netherlands (330) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Moisture pushed a little farther north overnight, and with cold air blasting in this morning, we are seeing precipitation end as some snow. There will be minor accumulations of wet snow south of I-70, and in some spots we can see up to a coating to an inch or two. This will not hang around long term, but the snow does not completely push off to the east until midday or early afternoon. Areas to the north of I-70 see only clouds and much colder air.Strong north winds remain in our forecast for tomorrow. These winds will trigger some wrap around snows in Ohio, but we still don’t think anything is able to gain traction back here. We will keep tomorrow, Thursday and Friday dry over the state. Temps stay cold tomorrow and Thursday, but start to moderate just a bit on Friday as south winds arrive ahead of our next front.That system moves in for Saturday. Rain totals will easily be .25”-1” over the entire state, unchanged from yesterday’s thoughts. The upper end of the range will from potential thunderstorm action later Saturday afternoon and evening, mostly from central Indiana back into northeast IL. All rains still look to be done by Sunday morning but as temperatures fall behind the front, we are opening the possibility that the precipitation ends as wet snow over a large part of the state. We can see minor accumulations of a coating to an inch once again.  The map above is a snapshot of potential action Sunday eveningDry for Sunday afternoon and Monday of next week. But, then the pattern becomes a little more active. WE have showers that move through overnight Monday night through Tuesday bringing .05”-.5” to about 70% of the state. Then we take a minor break with dry weather Tuesday night and Wednesday, followed by another batch of scattered showers for Thursday, adding another .25” over 60% of the state.Moderate to heavy rains arrive for Easter weekend on the 31st and 1st. We are raising rain totals to .5”- 2” over 100% of the state. This will be a very moisture laden system. But then we go dry for the 2nd through the 5th for the remainder of the extended forecast window. By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 20, 2018 SHARElast_img read more

Eliaschev is the editor of, a news website that is part of the Perfil press group. The attack is indicative of the terrible climate currently afflicting the Argentine news media.The press freedom organisation also condemns the arrest and beating of radio journalist Carlos Furman by police in the northeastern province of Entre Ríos on 13 September. Furman has been the target of threats and violence in the past.“We cannot take sides in the conflict between the Perfil group’s management and the Buenos Aires Press Workers Union (UTPBA),” the press freedom organisation said. “But its scale and violence show that it has clearly become much more than a journalistic dispute. The attack on Eliaschev, like Furman’s arrest, are symptomatic of an untenable climate of violence that refuses to let up.”Reporters Without Borders added: “It is high time that, in the run-up to the 28 October elections, that journalists, media organisations and the authorities undertake to work together to defuse the situation.”Perfil group journalists went on strike on 10 September over the dismissal of one of’s reporters, Alejandro Wall. The company, which is headed by Jorge Fontevecchia, claims that because of journalists elections scheduled for 27-28 September, the UTPBA refused at the last minute to attend an 11 September meeting at the labour ministry that could have resulted in Wall being reinstated.The situation degenerated on 13 September. Dispatched to the UTPBA office to request an explanation for its no-show two days before, Eliaschev was attacked and beaten repeatedly, sustaining head injuries. According to the UTPBA, some of its members were the target of acts of vandalism and intimidation a few hours later by persons claiming to represent the Worker Party, which has links to the Perfil group.Eliaschev is the son of José “Pepe” Eliaschev, who had a programme that was taken off Radio Nacional on 30 December 2005 as a result of political pressure on the station’s management (see release of 5 January 2006). Last week’s attack is new blow to the Argentine press, which is already weakened by internal division and its strained relations with local and federal authorities.The programme director of FM 2 de Octubre, a local radio station in Santa Elena (in Entre Ríos province), Furman reported on 13 September that he had been arrested and beaten by police four days earlier, after receiving death threats. At the end of August, he had talked on the air about the profanation of a cemetery, which he said had been played down by the police. The police said Furman was simply arrested on a charge of “insult.” He was held overnight and was released on 14 September, after his lawyer intervened.Furman has often accused the provincial authorities of corruption and personal enrichment in his programmes. He survived a shooting attack on 10 June 2006, holing up in a Santa Elena hotel for three months, with a bullet-proof vest. July 6, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
