Alan Oscroft | Monday, 15th June, 2020 | More on: BARC Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Is the Barclays share price too cheap to ignore? Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I can understand that right now, investors are steering clear of banks, like Barclays (LSE: BARC). The sector has been hammered ever since the UK’s Brexit vote, and tends to suffer in any crisis. The Barclays share price, for example, fell by almost 60% in the immediate aftermath of the Covid-19 crash.That’s a very similar fall to that suffered by Lloyds Banking Group, which seems like the pariah of the sector right now. But there’s a difference. Since that low point, the Barclays share price has come back with a 57% spurt. Since its lowest point of 2020, the Lloyds share price has gained only 21%. Our institutional investors, it seems, are more confident in Barclays’ recovery 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…I reckon you’d have done very well to get in on Barclays at the bottom, and I don’t mean for the obvious short-term profit. I do think the Barclays share price was way too low at the time. But I think it’s still too cheap, and that investors still have a great opportunity to grab a bargain buy.Banking pessimismBefore I offer any more bullish thoughts, I should highlight the bearish opinion of my fellow Motley Fool writer Royston Wild. As he points out, the UK economy is in a truly shocking state, hammered by the lockdown. And banks are seeing their ability to make profits squeezed ever tighter. Royston’s pessimism is understandable.ING is predicting a 9% setback for the economy in 2020, which is a scary figure. If we should suffer a second wave of the pandemic, things will surely turn out worse than that. And we’ve already seen world stock markets weakening on fears of a second outbreak in China.Oh, and it seems we’re not making very good progress on the Brexit negotiation front either. A no-deal Brexit would not help our banks, and could bring yet another Barclays share price hit.More gloom?If you want even  more pessimism, Barclays and the other big high street banks are facing increasing competition from challenger banks. But during a downturn, I can’t help thinking bigger is better, and Barclays is more resilient than the smaller competition. Judging by Virgin Money, which I rate as one of the best, the City sees it that way too. Since the start of 2020, Virgin Money shares are down 49%, very close to Lloyds’ overall 51% loss. Compared to that, Barclays’ year-to-date fall of 38% looks almost buoyant.The Barclays share price could stay low for some time yet, and I see no urgency to buy. In fact, we could still see more dips and better buying opportunities in the future.Barclays share priceBut looking at the long term and the next decade or so, I’m very optimistic. I’m upbeat about the UK’s economic future, and a return to growth could quickly turn that predicted 9% shrinkage around. And when the economy strengthens, I can only see banks coming back strongly too.In the meantime, the reinstatement of banking dividends should prove a key milestone. And when banks are allowed to resume payments, I expect to see a Barclays share price boost.

The Argo Blockchain (ARB) share price has been falling lately, shedding 50% from its February high at one point this week. But it is still up over 2,900% in the past 12 months. Why has the Argo Blockchain share price been falling?Here I consider two explanations – and what they could mean for 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…The Musk effectArgo isn’t the only cryptocurrency company to have suffered in the markets this week. After Tesla chief executive Elon Musk made widely publicised comments about the environmental impact of crypto mining, the markets took fright.The car company said it would stop taking payment in Bitcoin, which dented confidence in the cryptocurrency. That matters for Argo, as it held 936 Bitcoin or their equivalent as of last month.I see Musk as a loose cannon whose conflicting messages on cryptocurrency impact markets. That could weigh on the Argo Blockchain share price in future. Yesterday, Argo announced that it has signed the Crypto Climate Accord. That may reassure some investors. But I don’t think it is enough on its own to counteract the impact of Musk’s comments.Valuation concernsThe wild ride of the Argo Blockchain share price over the past year also reflects questions about how best to value the company.On one view, it is essentially a property landlord, as it operates a series of data centres in which clients can rent space. Indeed, on Thursday it confirmed the completion of its purchase of a couple of data centres in Canada. A property landlord is often valued by looking first at it net assets and using that as a basis to judge its future likely income streams.But an alternative way of looking at this company in particular is to emphasise the possible value in its current and future cryptocurrency holding. Like a farm owner who has tenant farmers but continues to work some of his land himself, Argo is actively mining for cryptocurrency.That is why it currently has a market cap of £580m while cash and digital assets at the end of its last financial year were only £6.7m. Its cryptocurrency assets increased in value in the first quarter, to £32.6m at the end of March, but that is still a significant valuation gap.Bulls could argue that the valuation reflects the company’s fast growth rate and growing pile of Bitcoins. Bears might point to a risk of the share price falling if cryptocurrency prices drop, but also if the market decides to value Argo Blockchain based more on its reported assets.I previously explained my valuation concerns about the Argo Blockchain share price. Even after the recent falls, investors like me maintain value concerns. There is a risk the share price could keep falling.Where next for the Argo Blockchain share priceThe Argo Blockchain share price looks to me like it could keep on falling.The Musk effect isn’t the only reason it fell lately. I think underlying concerns about the valuation could also be in play. Given the risks, I don’t see the pullback as a buying opportunity for my portfolio.

Authorities asked to be more discerning after five journalists arrested in two weeks

first_img Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” Follow the news on Iraq Receive email alerts December 28, 2020 Find out more April 26, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities asked to be more discerning after five journalists arrested in two weeks Reporters Without Borders voices alarm about the arrests of five journalists in the past two weeks. “Some of the police behaviour has been completely unacceptable, such as the beatings given to the Reuters cameraman and two of his assistants, and requests for exorbitant sums of money that are tantamount to extortion.” RSF_en IraqMiddle East – North Africa News February 15, 2021 Find out more Organisation to go further Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders voiced alarm today about the arrests of five journalists in the past two weeks and urged the Iraqi authorities to be more discerning.”We are very worried about the increase in arrests of local journalists, often without any evidence or for unknown reasons,” the press freedom organization said. “Iraqi journalists now have to deal with this new problem, in which their employers are often powerless to act. Both employers and family members must be given an explanation for such arrests.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “We appeal to the Iraqi authorities to be more discerning and restrained, and to not carry out hasty and arbitrary arrests. Some of the police behaviour has been completely unacceptable, such as the beatings given to the Reuters cameraman and two of his assistants, and requests for exorbitant sums of money that are tantamount to extortion.”The organization said it called on the Iraqi authorities to put an end to such “disgraceful practices” and to either quickly produce evidence to back up the allegations against the journalists or release them.The first of the journalists to be arrested in this wave was Hussein Al Shimari, a reporter with the satellite TV station Al-Diyar, who was detained by Iraqi soldiers on 9 April in Dyala province, northeast of Baghdad, on suspicion of collaborating with the insurgents. His editor said he was tortured. He has not been allowed to contact his family, which has not received any word of him since his arrest.The mayor of the southern town of Kawit ordered the arrest of Ayad Altmimi, the editor of the daily newspaper Sada Wasit, and journalist Ahmed Mutare Abass on 12 April. Ibrahim Al-Srage of IJRDA, an organization that defends Iraqi journalists, said the mayor requested an arrest warrant from his cousin, the town’s public prosecutor, who responded by sentencing Altmimi to two months in prison and Abass to four months in prison for libel. The newspaper had carried reports about the constant violent crime and the shortcomings of the municipal authorities.On 20 April, several policemen burst into the home of freelance cameraman Hassan Walid Abdul Wahab, 23, who works regularly for the German TV station Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF), arresting him, his two brothers (who do not work for the news media) and his father, a retired cinema operator in his 50s who was recently hospitalized with heart problems. A relative said that, as a pretext for holding him, the police suggested Wahab could be linked to the abductors of the Romanian journalists. A policeman today asked the family for 10,000 US dollars.Police arrested Reuters Television cameraman Nabil Hussein on 24 April in the northern city of Mosul. Reached by telephone, Reuters spokesperson Susan Allsopp told Reporters Without Borders the police have not said what he is charged with. According to Reuters, Hussein’s father was also arrested when he tried to visit his son a few hours after his arrest.Describing the original arrest, relatives told Reuters about 20 police raided the home in the morning, beating Hussein, another journalist and their driver, before taking them to police headquarters in Mosul. The driver, Ismail Ibrahim, said the police “put sacks on our heads and beat us.” Reuters global managing editor David Schlesinger said he was very concerned about the arrests and called for the immediate release of Hussein and his father. “We are anxious to establish why our cameraman is being held and what if any charges have been brought.” Reuters today said it was still waiting for news.

By Digital AIM Web Support – February 22, 2021 BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– Pocket Outdoor Media (POM), the world’s leading creator of active lifestyle content and experiences, today announced the following acquisitions that significantly expand the scope of its audience and range of services provided to customers and partners: This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210222005542/en/Outside Integrated Media, the iconic producer of award-winning adventure content and home to Outside magazine, Outside Studios, and the travel business Outside GO. Peloton magazine, a highly respected source of inspirational storytelling and photography about the sport of cycling. With respect to Outside TV, the closing of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval by the FCC of certain license transfer. The company expects the acquisition to close in the second quarter. The company also announced that it has changed its name from Pocket Outdoor Media to Outside. These acquisitions were made possible by the closing of a Series B financing from investment partners that include Sequoia Heritage, JAZZ Ventures, Zone 5 Ventures, and NEXT Ventures. The financing and acquisition transactions will enable the company to make significant investments in audience, technology, and product development . Cooley LLP and Progress Partners advised the company with respect to the transactions. Said Michael Moritz, who will be joining the Outside board of directors: “We’re investing in Outside because the management team has warmly embraced the future of information and entertainment on the internet. Just like Netflix and Amazon Prime, Outside will create and distribute distinctive content to a worldwide audience on any connected device. Better still, Outside will turbocharge the online programming of many of the most-loved fitness and health brands. As a longtime journalist and former ink-stained wretch, I’m now being granted the opportunity to start a new chapter—as a digital-stained wretch.” The deals create a platform whose scale across television, mobile, desktop, and print is unparalleled in the outdoor, endurance, fitness, and wellness markets. The new additions join existing brands such as SKI, Yoga Journal, Women’s Running, Triathlete, Backpacker, Climbing, Clean Eating, VeloNews, Trail Runner, FinisherPix, Warren Miller Entertainment, and more. “This is a transformational day for our company and our customers,” said Robin Thurston, CEO of the new Outside. “Everything we do is driven by a belief that a hike, run, ride, or yoga practice can change your life, and these new brands will help us fulfill our mission to build the world’s best consumer experience across a wide range of activities.” “Each of these brands brings unique and powerful strengths to our network,” Thurston added. “The incredible reputation and relevance of the Outside brands across multiple lifestyle categories made our decision to change our company’s name a logical choice. Meanwhile, Gaia GPS and athleteReg significantly boost the ways we facilitate participation through best-in-class tools and services. And as a lifelong cyclist, I’m personally thrilled to welcome Peloton, one of my go-to reads for its evocative celebrations of the sport. With these moves, we can now deliver world-class content 24/7 to almost every home in America across every platform, screen, and device. My team and I are deeply honored to help write the next chapter for these iconic businesses.” “Like Robin, I’ve always believed in the power of great storytelling,” said Larry Burke, founder, Chairman, and Editor-in-Chief of Outside Integrated Media, which reaches 38 million people a month across all platforms . “When we published our first issue of Outside magazine in 1977, we helped give birth to what is now a $887 billion outdoor industry, and we’ve been pioneering the art of adventure ever since. Our stories have won awards in print, video, and film, and we’ve inspired millions of people to ‘live bravely.’ It’s everything I could’ve wanted to do with my life, and I’m delighted to find such a good home for Outside among POM’s outdoor brands.” Burke, who won the Outdoor Industry Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019, is set to tackle his next project—a book about his life—while continuing to pursue his passion for living an active outside life. The new businesses will continue operating out of their existing locations and will immediately begin working on a range of synergies that the company’s technology platform makes possible. Most significantly, the acquisitions bring new benefits to the company’s Active Pass membership, a fast-growing, $99 per year offering that gives consumers access to hundreds of dollars in value in the form of premium digital content, print subscriptions, event entries and photography, books, gear discounts, a personalized feed, and interactive experiences with editors, pro athletes, coaches, and other experts.

Economy Gets an Upgrade, Despite Housing Drag

She has worked for DS News and MReport magazines—both in print and online—since they launched.

The group based its revision on expectations that third- and fourth-quarter inventory restocking will offset ebbing consumer spending growth and a drop in net exports, so details its August 2018 Economic and Housing Outlook. Echoing previous reports, the ESR Group also pointed to trade policy as a primary source of downside risk. It maintained that loosening fiscal policy impacts and tightening monetary policy are key parts of its 2.3 percent growth projection for 2019.“Breakneck headline growth in the second quarter disguised a detail largely responsible for the latest upward revision to our full-year growth forecast: a need to restock declining business inventories, which we expect will support greater growth amid weakness elsewhere,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. The sole sector throwing a wrench in the works? It’s housing, Duncan said. “Housing continues to drag on growth due to lackluster homebuilding activity, home sales, and brokers’ commissions; and its overall weakness likely reflects continuing inventory shortages, rather than a decline in demand,” he said. For the fourth time in five quarters, residential investment chipped away at growth as housing activity lost steam across the board. Crimped supply continued to support home price hikes while helping block affordability, the ESR Group reported.In the face of recent evidence that consumers might have bigger savings cushions to support future spending than formerly thought, the ESR Group also predicts that real consumer spending growth will ease off in Q3. As expected, government spending showed a strong increase in Q2, mirroring budget-related legislation, it says. But outside of any new stimulus, spending’s effect on growth should start waning in 2019, the group notes. Additionally, after last quarter’s dash by international firms to “pull forward” U.S. imports in advance of previously announced tariffs, the ESR Group believes that trade will return to its previous status as an impediment on growth. This reflects both an about-face of last quarter’s surge and the negative ramifications of the strengthening dollar, it explains.
