“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Some share prices are limping along but in the right conditions could be future sprinters. Here are two stocks I think are right for patient investors wanting to identify cheap FTSE 100 shares.An expensive-but-cheap FTSE 100 shareShares in telecoms giant Vodafone (LSE: VOD) work primarily on two levels for me. One is they provide income, great for reinvesting and benefitting from compounding. The second aspect is the value of the shares.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…Compared to the firm’s historic P/E the shares now are relatively cheap. If you look back to around this time last year, the P/E was over 30. Now it’s nearer 25. The dividend yield is also high at 6.7%.The group is continuing to grow in Europe as a result of transformation acquisitions, which may prove to be fruitful for investors. The underlying performance of the business is mixed and growth is low but that’s why the shares are cheap. High-growth shares have high P/E ratios.Like other telecoms companies, Vodafone has high levels of debt. Plans to sell off its towers network later this year should reduce that burden. Overall the shares look cheap and the rollout of 5G, along with selling more services to like broadband customers, could boost earnings in the future.Under-pressure FTSE 100 landlordUnderstandably with its exposure to retail and to offices, shares of British Land (LSE: BLND) have not done well so far this year. But I think investors may have overreacted and the shares are now too cheap to ignore. They trade on a P/E of 11.The dividend has been suspended. That’s understandable given the lack of clarity management has over future earnings, especially when the group is supporting its retail tenants through rent relief and delays.But even before Covid-19, the group was reducing its exposure to retail customers. In five years’ time, retail is expected to account for only about a third of assets.Right now though, the group is well-financed, with a portfolio of developments and a share price that’s looking cheap. I think it’s potentially too cheap to be ignored. The uncertainty means the group now trades for far less than its assets are worth. Something legendary investors like Warren Buffett would approve of. It gives investors a margin of safety.This is certainly a cheap FTSE 100 share. But are the shares really worth 38% less than that the start of the year? I’d argue not. There are opportunities for the business to develop more mixed-use sites and reduce its reliance on retail, which seems like a smart move. I think the shares are worth a look for any value-focused investor.Both of these companies face challenges, especially when it comes to growth. Both are mature elephants, but in the right conditions, I think they could charge. The shares look cheap and they’ll survive this economic slowdown. That’s why they’re difficult to ignore.

A handful of FTSE 100 stocks have stood out as champion investments over the past decade. One of these is GVC Holdings (LSE: GVC). Over the past few years, this company has grown from a small upstart into one of the world’s largest online gaming platforms. It doesn’t look as if this trend is going to come to an end anytime soon.The business is a sector leader in the provision of online gaming solutions. It also owns a portfolio of brick-and-mortar stores. As its global market continues to expand, GVC may be able to use its existing footprint to drive further growth. And as it does, it seems highly likely the FTSE 100 stock will generate high total returns for investors in the years ahead. 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…FTSE 100 growth champion GVC has already been an outstanding investment. Over the past 10 years, the stock has produced an average annual return of 27.2% for investors. Over the same time frame, the FTSE 100 has yielded an average total return of 5.8%. The company has grown through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions. Following a string of deals in the past few years, revenue has exploded from £180m in 2014 to £3.6bn for 2019. Some investors might question whether or not the FTSE 100 growth champion can keep up this sort of growth. It seems likely it can. Online gambling is a very lucrative business, and GVC is a cash machine. Last year, for example, the firm generated £260m in free cash flow after investing £170m in growth. Most of this free cash flow was returned to investors via dividends. Having conquered the European gambling market, GVC has now set its sights on the US, forming a partnership with casino giant MGM Resorts. The group has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to meet its goal of becoming the market leader in the rapidly expanding US sports betting and gaming market.Estimates vary, but many analysts expect the US gaming market to be worth several billion dollars in a few years. If the FTSE 100 company can capture a significant share of this market, its growth may only just be getting started. Long-term potential Despite all of the above, it may not be all smooth sailing for GVC in the years ahead. Gambling is a highly regulated and controlled market. That means the company has to follow regulators’ strict demands, or could lose its licence. Also, the coronavirus crisis has had an impact on the group. Its latest trading update revealed an 11% decline in net gaming revenue for the six months to 30 June. Still, despite this, the company’s growth track record and cash generation suggest it’s well-placed to capitalise on any market opportunities that may emerge over the next few years. As such, it may be worth snapping up a share of this FTSE 100 growth stock as part of a well-diversified portfolio today.

Mumia Abu-JamalBy Mumia Abu-JamalTaken from a Jan. 7, 2021 audio column aired on prisonradio.orgIt was a sight that will be long remembered — hundreds, then thousands of men scaling the walls of the U.S. Capitol like soldiers on a web.Then ripping, tearing, shredding all they could touch, all that they hated and all that they feared: the ruling wealthy powerful politicians in the Capitol, senators and representatives alike.This nest of spiders was unleashed and directed by the fiery tongue of the Imperial President, Trump, designed to stop his congressional enemies from formally confirming his successor.This Trump mob seemed to be of working-class origins, which suggests they’ve probably spent most of the last year jobless, probably food insecure, and seeing their country fall apart from a failing economy and a deadly virus.That hunger and fury was fed by Trump propaganda, and before long, they were ready. And when they struck, they were all but greeted by Capitol Hill police, who took selfies with them and opened gates to them.For they were brothers, white brothers. And once the way was open, they went to work, ripping the Capitol apart.After shattering windows and battering down doors, the Trump mob burst through, like a hurricane through Kansas.Members of the U.S. Senate and House were forced to snuggle under desks, to hide from these invaders.Historians of American history know well that mobs have a long reign in national life, first against the rich and propertied, and later, during the early 20th century, against Blacks newly migrated from the South to the cities.But Trump’s use of mob violence against another branch of government is virtually unique.It turns a new page in American history and a new low in the Imperial Presidency.

UkraineEurope – Central Asia September 7, 2020 Find out more Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV RSF_en March 26, 2021 Find out more November 18, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Growing media harassment a threat to press freedom ahead of presidential elections run-off Help by sharing this information News Follow the news on Ukraine Organisation to go further News News UkraineEurope – Central Asia Growing media harassment including assaults, sackings and denial of access to information threatens press freedom ahead of the second round of presidential elections on 21 November, said Reporters Without Borders.There has so far been totally biased media coverage of the campaign, pitting Prime Minister Victor Yanukovych against his opposition rival Victor Yushchenko, said the worldwide press freedom organisation. “Almost every method is being used to prevent complete and full coverage of the campaign,” it said.Many journalists continue to protest at the authorities systematic use of “temnyks” or instructions to editorial offices as to how certain subjects should be handled.Around 30 journalists working for the leading TV channels demonstrated outside the studios of public UT-1 television and private 1+1, on the evening of a televised debate on 15 November between the candidates in protest at government obstacles to the media’s work.Some of the demonstrators tied their hands together with paper chains made out of “temnyks”.Television news presenter Volodymyr Holosnyak of UT-1 TV was sacked on 3 November for refusing to read a temnyk ahead of a televised debate in which Victor Yanukovych was taking part. The journalist insisted that he should also read a statement on the conditions sought by Victor Yushchenko to take part in the debate.Elsewhere, there have been several assaults on opposition supporters and journalists. On 3 November, Enver Musayev, of the weekly Holos Kryma was physically assaulted and his colleagues threatened at Simferopol, the regional capital of Crimea. Three thugs approached the journalist’s vehicle dragged Musavev out and struck him. Editor of the weekly newspaper Eldar Seidbekirov, who was present during the assault, said that one of the assailants wore the uniform of a lieutenant-colonel. On the eve of the first round of the elections on 31 October, a journalist on the main opposition television channel Kanal 5 Serghiy Skorobohatko was beaten up at a polling station by assailants who also snatched his camera. The 17 November issue of opposition daily Silski Visti that carried an interview with Victor Yushchenko, could not be sent to its subscribers because the copies were stuck at the depot owned by the distributor, Pressa Ukrayiny, a subsidiary of the public post office. On the same day, unidentified visitors turned up at the newspaper’s office and gave “advice” about the most appropriate way of covering the election campaign. The daily was finally distributed to its subscribers at about 3pm on 17 November after the paper demanded that parliament intervene.The daily has suffered mounting harassment since its socialist owner Alexandre Moroz gave his backing to Victor Yushchenko. As a result a large number of readers, particularly in the south, no longer receive their papers. The local post offices come up with a range of excuses to explain it.Editor Vasyl Hruzin said these technical problems were solely due to the newspaper’s political line. He said there had also been attempts at censorship of the paper.The public post office at Donetsk, in the east of the country refused to send the independent weekly Svoboda to several thousand subscribers in the Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhya, Luhansk, Kharkov and Crimea areas. The post office’s regional director Mykola Dremov informed the weekly’s editor Mykhailo Khalandski that a court in Donetsk had banned its distribution but refused to produce a copy of the ruling.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: DSNews 2014-02-04 DSNews Black Knight Financial Services released on Monday its year-end Mortgage Monitor Report, showing significant, sustained improvements in both delinquency and foreclosure numbers throughout 2013. Echoing data released in its first-look report at the end of January, the company revealed delinquency rates last year were about 1.5 times the pre-crisis average, while foreclosure rates were 4.6 times their pre-crisis level. While those percentages are still elevated, Black Knight says they’re a substantial improvement from their peaks.The company also explored the rate of recovery between judicial versus non-judicial foreclosure states, finding that judicial areas have been a bit slower to bounce back in price growth and the number of problem loans. Herb Blecker, SVP of data and analytics for Black Knight, discussed the difference in growth:Fannie Mae’s book of business shrank in December, ending a short streak of growth as new business acquisitions slowed. According to the GSE’s monthly volume summary, total business contracted at a compound annual rate of 0.4% in December, bringing the full-year growth rate to negative 0.8%. The total book was valued at about $3.16 trillion as of the end of 2013.

Dallas Police Department(DALLAS) — Authorities in Dallas, Texas are on the lookout for an armed suspect that may be linked to three separate aggravated sexual assaults. The assaults occurred at three different North Dallas apartment complexes, all within eight and a half miles of each other.The latest victim was inside her apartment when the suspect knocked on her door and solicited work, before pushing his way into the apartment and sexually assaulted her, Dallas Deputy Police Chief Thomas Castro said at a Thursday press conference.The first assault occurred on Sept. 12 and the second one on Sept. 29 — within a mile of each other — officials said.The most recent assault unfolded about eight miles from the other two.In each attack, the suspect gained access to his victim’s apartment by knocking and soliciting work or asking for a donation — and then forcing himself inside once the door was answered, brandishing a weapon, Castro said.In the incident in which the suspect allegedly solicited a donation, he accepted the donation before assaulting his victim, according to Castro.Castro said that “in a couple of [the] offenses,” children were present in the home during the attack, but declined to provide further detail beyond saying no children were harmed and the victims were the only adults in the residence at the time of the assault.“When somebody knocks on your door before you open the door, make sure you know who is out there, and what they want,” Castro said.Dallas Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect, who was described as a black male, 16 to 18-years-old, approximately 5’8″ and a 140 pounds with a box fade haircut and a mark on his wrist.He was last seen wearing black pants, a black T-shirt with a red and white design on the front, a black jacket and black and red athletic shoes, Castro said.Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Detective Todd Haecker at 214-671-3610 or Detective Brandi Kramer at 214-671-3613.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
