Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img The stock market rally is proof that we as investors are euphoric about the Covid-19 vaccine. After months of distress, there’s finally a ray of light. We may not be at the end of the pandemic, but at least we appear to be at the beginning of the end. Preparing for uncertaintyPandemic-hit UK shares have been some of the fastest risers in the current stock market rally. The bull in me reckons that they could even double my money invested today by next year.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…The more cautious part of me, however, thinks that it’s also important to account for all the uncertainty in the air. 2021 may not be a smooth ride for the stock markets, much as we’d like the rally to continue endlessly. I reckon that Brexit, the possibility of sluggish economic growth and the fragile financial health of many companies could pose challenges. In line with this, it’s a good idea to be realistic about the gains possible across stock markets. So I’m considering a longer time-frame of five years. I reckon that by 2025 it’s quite likely that some will double my money. In terms of simple averaging, it implies 20% growth every year, which is a decent rate by any standards.  My focus is on high-growth industries, though it’s by no means an exhaustive list. Two categories, in particular, appeal to me. These are as follows:#1. UK shares and the online marketplace boomTechnology-driven apps that make our lives simpler are clear winners. Consider e-grocers like Ocado, real estate e-marketplace Rightmove, or even the food delivery app Just Eat Takeaway. If there was any doubt that the world was getting increasingly digital, I think 2020 has put it to rest. Even with some slowing down in their revenue growth as the UK opens up, I think over time they will gain.Going digital also means that we’ll have far more deliveries at our doorstep than before. I think by now most of us have experienced the ease of Amazon shopping and even the vast array of stuff that can be bought online. I certainly have. This is set to increase demand for the packaging industry. And it so happens that not one but three FTSE 100 companies provide exactly these products. Stocks like Smurfit Kappa, Mondi, and DS Smith are ones to look out for. #2. Clean energy gets a pushClean energy is another industry that’s set to make rapid strides in the next decade. The Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust, with big holdings in Tesla, is one UK share with a stake in clean energy. Industries associated with electric vehicles will also benefit. These include stocks like speciality chemical manufacturer Johnson Matthey, which is a component supplier for electric vehicle (EV) cells and Rio Tinto, which produces lithium, also a component in EV cells. A third one is the FTSE 100 miner Anglo American, which is now producing an electric mining truck, making it yet another reason to like the stock.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Is that share a value trap?

Enter Your Email Address Is that share a value trap? Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares When learning about investing, some lessons are harder than others. Putting hard-earned money into what seems like a promising investment only to see it disappear is a painful experience even very experienced investors suffer.That is one reason diversification is so important as a risk management strategy. One big risk investors face is what is known as a ‘value trap’. Here I explain what it is, and the value trap indicators to look out for.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…What a value trap isWe’ve all been tempted by value traps in life. The thing that’s to0 cheap to be true – a holiday, a second-hand car, a doer-upper flat. What looks like a bargain turns out to be anything but. The same applies to shares. A value trap is a share that looks surprisingly cheap, but actually is not cheap at all.Imagine, for example, a company that is heavily reliant on one source of income, such as a medical patent or a particular client. Looking at their earnings for recent years, the shares look cheap. But if it turns out that the future earnings are greatly reduced — the patent expires, the client goes under — then the shares aren’t cheap at all.That’s why it is important to look at a company’s likely future earnings, not just its past record. As well as earnings, I like to look at free cash flow – the money coming in the door. That is a better indication of whether a company is genuinely profitable.Sectoral shifts can be value trap indicatorsA change in a business marketplace can create value traps. For example, the high street is changing rapidly. I think retailers like B&M are adapting to this and can thrive. But a company like Card Factory faces not only a changing high street, but also shifts in consumer card sending patterns. A single digit price-to-earnings ratio is one potential indicator of a value trap – and Card Factory has that. Five years from now, we could be looking back at Card Factory’s share price today as a great bargain for a well-run business. But equally, we could be looking back wondering why people still believed in the investment case when card shops look like a declining business.Other value trap indicators can include very high yields, a preference for unusual accounting metrics, and high net debt. But none of these is necessarily conclusive. Some companies that look like value traps are in fact great bargains. As the market has marked their chances lower, the share price has tumbled. So they can present a real bargain.Just looking back at lows from last year, it’s incredible that some shares were as cheap as they were. Similarly, while Card Factory faces a challenging retail environment, it is a proven operator and has been able to adapt its offering, growing sales on its website for most of last year by 137%. Greeting card companies are in vogue, as the listing of Moonpig demonstrated. If Card Factory survives and thrives, today’s share price could be a bargain.That’s why I find it worth investigating more about an apparent bargain. Some clear value trap indicators scare me off. But sometimes, a share can look like good value, not a value trap.

Raid on blogger’s home revives issue of shield law protection for bloggers

first_imgNews NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say United StatesAmericas WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en June 3, 2021 Find out more Organisation Help by sharing this information June 7, 2021 Find out more to go further There is a growing controversy about the raid that the police carried out on 23 April on the California home of blogger Jason Chen, the editor of Gizmodo, a blog about gadgets and technology, because it obtained a prototype iPhone and published an exclusive about it, together with photos and videos, without Apple’s agreement. Desktops, laptops, portable hard drives, cameras and gadgets were all seized in the raid on Chen’s home.“All items seized during the raid must be returned to Jason Chen without delay,” Reporters Without Borders said. “California’s shield law protects the sources and working material of bloggers involved in reporting news and information to the public.” The press freedom organisation added: “Even if the iPhone was acquired in questionable circumstances, we are astonished by the disproportionate scale of the measures taken against Chen, especially the amount of equipment seized that had nothing to do with this case.”Owned by Gawker Media, Gizmodo reportedly paid $5,000 to gain access to the prototype iPhone, which an Apple engineer left in a bar. Gizmodo subsequently returned it to Apple.The police raid was carried out by a special information technology unit called the Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team (REACT) on a warrant issued by a San Mateo county judge on the grounds that the seized equipment could have been used to commit a crime. Apple happens to be a member of the REACT steering committee, which means there could have been a conflict of interest.The state of California’s legislation is one of the most protective in the country as regards the sources and working material of journalists. Gawker Media is claiming that the search warrant was illegal under section 1524(g) of the Californian criminal code and is citing O’Grady vs Superior Court, a case in which an appeal court ruled that the shield law applies to online journalists.The courts must now decide between those who invoke the shield law’s protection in the name of the right to information, and those who accuse Gizmodo of receiving stolen property. center_img Receive email alerts Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says News News Follow the news on United States United StatesAmericas News April 28, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Raid on blogger’s home revives issue of shield law protection for bloggers April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
