Despite the risks, I think FTSE 100 oil giant BP will go the distance

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Despite the risks, I think FTSE 100 oil giant BP will go the distance Kirsteen Mackay | Wednesday, 19th February, 2020 | More on: BP I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renewable resourcesBP has the ways and means to get a handle on renewables, from its pots of cash to its history and knowledge in the energy markets.I think it should utilise this extensive experience to do enough good in the world to counteract the bad. For however desperately we would like to kick oil to the kerb, we’re still too reliant on fossil fuels for it to happen soon. Emerging markets want a piece of the oil action and demand from these countries is increasing, despite a slowdown elsewhere.External factors to considerOil prices are currently suppressed as the coronavirus has created a global economic slowdown. With travel bans in place, there’s less demand for the oil that fuels the planes, ships and cruise-liners. The epidemic has affected the profit margins of many companies and markets, but the price of oil has been most prominently hit since early January when the outbreak became apparent. Long term, the impact of coronavirus is still unknown, but going by previous outbreaks it should be negligible.The BP share price has looked attractive and undervalued for a long time now, which has seen its P/E creep up. Year-to-date, the BP share price is down 4%, while its peer Royal Dutch Shell has fallen 15%. When the oil price is subdued by external factors, this gives already cheap stocks even more value. Climate concerns continueI’m a fan of BP because I think it has the experience and knowledge to make strides in the renewables marketplace better than any up-and-coming small-cap. Nevertheless, it pains me to see the damage done to our beautiful planet by the oil industry.Climate change protests gained momentum in 2019 and global investment manager BlackRock announced moves into decarbonisation. This trend is likely to continue through 2020, which could cause further pressure on the oil price.Political developments, such as the upcoming US presidential election, can also impact global oil prices. And after going through the devastating effects of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, BP knows all too well the costs incurred if such a thing should happen again.All these factors should be kept in mind when embarking on adding BP shares to your portfolio. Oil stocks are not a risk-free investment, but I think BP is the best of the bunch. If you like a little risk and don’t mind venturing into the less favourable ‘sin’ stocks. My stock of choice would be oil giant BP (LSE:BP). Although I’m generally opposed to oil stocks as a safe investment, I do think BP has staying power.It recently raised its dividend to $0.10 per share, it also plans to divest $5bn of assets to maintain its attractive shareholder returns. Despite reporting a small loss in its latest trading update, it has strong cash flow.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…It has a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 23, earnings per share are 19p and its juicy dividend yield is now almost 7%. BP also completed its share buyback programme last month. Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

England v Ireland: Taking the positives

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Arm-wrestle: England and Ireland have a lot to lose on Saturday By Adam HathawayWhatever the result at Twickenham on Saturday when England host Ireland we can be certain of two things.One coach will say that the result does not amount to a hill of beans in terms of the World Cup; they have learned a lot and were trying out some new combinations anyway. They will then, in time-honoured fashion, take the positives out of the afternoon, draw a line under it and move on.The winning coach, whoever that is, will say the victory – over the tournament hosts or over the Six Nations champions – was a massive boost, proved all the doubters wrong, and will count for plenty down the line if the teams meet in the knock-out stages of the tournament.Plenty to think about: After a disappointing game in Paris, Stuart Lancaster wants a responseWell, the one who is saying it is not worth a hill of beans will be wrong. It will amount to a hill of beans, and a very big one, especially if England are looking at the wrong side of the score-board.Stuart Lancaster has a few things to sort and this is his last chance in a match situation before it all kicks off for real on 18 September against Fiji.The England coach has already taken some flak since announcing his World Cup squad over the selection of Sam Burgess, the non-selection of Danny Cipriani and the ditching of Luther Burrell. But now he has picked his 31 men, he could really do with a win.On Saturday he needs to see evidence that Geoff Parling and Tom Wood can shore up the line-out that creaked in Paris, that Brad Barritt and Jonathan Joseph can function together in midfield and the kicking game has come on since it was exposed in Dublin in March.Joe Schmidt is in a slightly different position with the last two Six Nations in the bag – he has, as Lancaster says, ‘credit in the bank’. England host Ireland on Saturday, and despite what the losing coach says after the match, this fixture matters. It matter a lot TAGS: Highlight Arch planner: Joe Schmidt will be desperate not to go into the World Cup with consecutive lossesEngland’s record since the last Six Nations is played 14, won seven, lost seven –  hardly the stuff of champions – whilst Ireland’s recent scorecard is played 13, won 11, lost two and highly respectable. So England could probably do with the win a shade more than Ireland.What they both have in common is they both lost their last matches and one of them will be heading into the World Cup with a losing run of two games.That is not the stuff of champions either, unless you believe the propaganda.Unsurprisingly, Warren Gatland was the first to raise his head above the parapet and say neither of England or Ireland would want to go into the World Cup with two straight defeats on the ledger.On Thursday, Lancaster, who has named pretty much his best available team, was quick to point out that New Zealand lost their last two games before the 2011 World Cup, and we all know what happened there. Maybe it really is the stuff of champions to stuff up your last two Tests before the game’s biggest tournament.Precedent: The All Blacks lost two consecutive games going into the 2011 World CupThose games were against South Africa in Port Elizabeth and Australia in Brisbane, neither was at Eden Park where the All Blacks played their big World Cup games.England’s match on Saturday is at the place, where they hope to play six World Cup matches, the other is in Manchester, so a loss is unthinkable. Whichever coach is saying what, come tea-time on Saturday, this is a game Lancaster cannot to afford to lose.But they will both be taking the positives…last_img read more

Ali Williams’ season ends before it even begins

first_imgMonday Feb 1, 2010 Ali Williams’ season ends before it even begins As the much anticipated Super 14 kicks into action shortly, the Auckland Blues played a preseason match against the Waikato Chiefs on the weekend. The game was a disaster for the Blues though, as lock Ali Williams limped off after only a few minutes.Williams ruptured his Achilles tendon after just three minutes on the field, resulting in him heading back to the sidelines for the rest of 2010. It was his first match back after spending most of 2009 out with the exact same injury.The Achilles was operated on and repaired in June, but the 28 year old will face further surgery next week as it ruptured just below the scar tissue from the previous procedure.“I knew what it was as soon as it happened,” Williams said. “As you would expect I’m absolutely gutted.”All Blacks coach Graham Henry said he was devastated for Williams.“He’s distraught about it,” Henry said. “But he’s a positive guy and he’s already talking about having another crack at it.”Henry phoned the veteran All Black that night, then visited him at his home the next day. He believe that having Williams involved in rugby during his recuperation will help him.“Having an involvement in the game will be helpful because he wouldn’t have played for 18 months and the game moves on,” he said.“It’s important to be as current as possible, be on the job and be up to date as much as you can. Some involvement like that will be helpful and I’ll certainly try to get him involved in some of the research for the All Blacks as far as the lineout is concerned.“He’s gone through a year without any rugby and worked very hard to come back.“It’s bad enough doing it once but to do it twice is horrendous. But it’s a mark of the man that he’s very keen to get it right and get back on the rugby field.“A lot of people would throw their arms up and say ‘what’s the point?’“But he is keen to give it his best shot, which he will and hopefully we’ll see him at some time during the year.” Time: 0:33ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Two leading journalists arrested under Internal Security Act

first_img News September 12, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two leading journalists arrested under Internal Security Act RSF_en Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrests today of two journalists – Raja Petra Kamarudin, the editor of the online newspaper Malaysia Today, and Tan Hoon Cheng, a senior reporter for the Chinese-language daily Sin Chew – under the the Internal Security Act (ISA). They could be held for 60 days. “The ISA does not provide for trial, and allows the police to hold a suspect without any grounds, solely on an interior ministry order,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Malaysia is one of the few remaining countries to permit such practices. These arrests are not only questionable, as a matter of principle, but also disproportionate. Raja Petra is the victim of judicial persecution while Tan is the victim of the government’s mistrust of journalists. We call for their release.” Aged 58, Raja Petra is accused of posing a threat to “security, peace and public order” under section 73 (1) of the Internal Security Act (ISA), which permits imprisonment without trial for two years. His lawyer, who said he would appeal against the order, said Raja Petra was arrested because of comments about Islam that he had posted on the Malaysia Today site (http://mt.m2day.org/2008/). Raja Petra is already being prosecuted on charges of defamation and “sedition” in connection with articles and comments posted on Malaysia Today. He was previously arrested under the ISA in 2001 because of his role within the opposition National Justice Party, whose newspaper he edited. The authorities said its content was “seditious. His family said around 10 policemen came today to his home in Sungai Buloh, outside Kuala Lumpur, and took him away for questioning in Bukit Aman. Interior minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar told the Malaysian Insider daily newspaper: “We have called and advised him many times about his statements, but he still continues writing in a way that could pose a threat.” News Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrests today of two journalists – Raja Petra Kamarudin, the editor of the online newspaper Malaysia Today, and Tan Hoon Cheng, a senior reporter for the Chinese-language daily Sin Chew – under the the Internal Security Act (ISA). They could be held for 60 days. Malaysian cartoonist Zunar facing possible sedition charge again Organisation News ISPs blocked access to his website under government pressure on 26 August (http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=28347). But the site became accessible again yesterday. Tan was arrested at her home in connection with an article she had written about comments by Ahmad Ismail, a Malay leader of the ruling UMNO party, who reportedly referred to Malaysians of Chinese origin as “squatters.”Earlier today, the interior ministry sent letters to three newspapers – Tan’s newspaper, Sin Chew, the English-language Sun and a newspaper linked to the party of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim – asking why they had published articles quoting these comments. The newspapers were warned they could lose their licences if they did not provide a satisfactory explanation within a week.Nazri Abdul Aziz, a minister with responsibility for justice, said in July 2007 that the government would not hesitate to use the ISA against bloggers who broached overly sensitive subjects. Malaysia was ranked 124th out of 169 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index, falling 14 places in two years.

Political reporter and cartoonist missing in Colombo on eve of election

first_img Follow the news on Sri Lanka to go further Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial Sri LankaAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders urges the security forces to assign more personnel to the search for journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda, who sent missing last night in Colombo. A senior police official told the press freedom organisation he was too busy with tomorrow’s presidential election to make the case a priority. Eknaligoda, who writes political analyses for the Lankaenews website, left work at about 9 p.m. but did not arrive home and has not contacted any family members or friends. He had told a close friend he thought he had been followed for the past few days.“Given the current political tension, it is extremely worrying that journalist known for criticising the government should disappear in the capital,” Reporters Without Borders said. “With rumours of premeditated violence against journalists circulating, we expect a rapid response from the authorities designed to find Eknaligoda safe and sound.”Eknaligoda’s wife told Reporters Without Borders she reported his disappearance to police stations in the Homagama and Rajagirirya-Welikada districts of the capital, and police officers took her statement.A fellow journalist told Reporters Without Borders that Eknaligoda had been threatened because of his political analyses: “Last week he wrote a long comparative analysis of the two main candidates for the presidential election that was published in Sinhalese on the Lankaenews site. He sided with the opposition. We fear that his disappearance is linked to that article.”Eknaligoda, who works for the newspaper Sirata as well as Lankaenews and is also well-known as a cartoonist, was previously kidnapped for a few hours on 3 August. Yesterday’s disappearance comes one day after the leading opposition candidate, General Sarath Fonseka, accused the government of planning violence in order to scare voters.Other journalists have been kidnapped in recent years. Poddala Jayantha, the secretary-general of the Sri Lanka Working Journalists Association, was kidnapped on a Colombo street in June of last year, tortured and then dumped on the side of a road. Radio Sooriyan news editor Nadarajah Kuruparan was kidnapped for 20 hours in Colombo in August 2006. Dharmeratnam “Taraki” Sivaram, editor of the Tamilnet news website and columnist for the Colombo-based Daily Mirror, was kidnapped and then murdered in April 2005.

Politically-orchestrated trial ends in long jail terms

first_img February 1, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff EgyptMiddle East – North Africa EgyptMiddle East – North Africa In a sign of the Egyptian regime’s increasingly totalitarian nature, a Cairo court today passed sentences ranging from seven to ten years in prison on Al-Jazeera journalists Peter Greste, Mohamed Fadel Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, who have already been held for more than 160 days. RSF_en June 23, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Politically-orchestrated trial ends in long jail terms Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution Follow the news on Egypt January 22, 2021 Find out more News February 6, 2021 Find out more to go further Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison News News “Not content with criminalizing all political opposition, the Egyptian authorities are pursuing a policy of gagging news media that try to offer a different take on reality from the government’s,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We point out that such arrests and arbitrary convictions violate the provisions of the new constitution, especially article 71.”Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, Al-Jazeera’s Cairo bureau chief, who has Canadian and Egyptian dual nationality, and Peter Greste, an Australian reporter, were given seven-year terms on charges of “broadcasting false reports” with the aim of supporting the Islamist movement and harming Egypt’s image.Baher Mohamed, who is Egyptian, received the same sentence plus an extra three-year jail term on additional charges, giving him a combined sentence of ten years in prison.Of the six other detained defendants, four were sentenced to seven years in prison and two were acquitted. Eleven other defendants who were tried in absentia –including two British journalists and a Dutch journalist – were given ten-year jail terms.The 16 Egyptian defendants were accused of membership of a “terrorist organization” (the Muslim Brotherhood) and of trying to harm Egypt’s image. The four foreign journalists were accused to trying to support Muslim Brotherhood by means of false reports.BackgroundJournalists continue to be subject to arbitrary arrest in Egypt although the new constitution guarantees freedom of expression and opinion (article 65), media freedom (article 70) and media independence (article 72). The government established after President Mohammed Morsi’s removal in July 2013 has systematically persecuted media regarded as sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood. Al-Jazeera has been one of the leading targets of this anti-Brotherhood witch-hunt, with the authorities closing its offices and arresting its journalists arbitrarily.The campaign was intensified after the government’s decision on 25 December to add the Muslim Brotherhood to its list of terrorist organizations. It is now prohibited for journalists to possess or disseminate Muslim Brotherhood statements or recordings.The extreme polarization of the Egyptian media (between those that support and those that oppose Morsi) is reinforcing the polarization of Egyptian society as a whole. As seen again during the recent election campaign, many media are overtly supporting the current government and, as a result, failing to play their watchdog role.A total of six journalists have been killed by live rounds since 3 July 2013. Most were killed while covering pro-Morsi demonstrations. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), more than 65 journalists were arrested for varying periods of time between 3 July and 30 April.In a recent open letter, Reporters Without Borders urged Egypt’s new ruler, President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, to act as a guarantor of freedom of the media and information and to release all detained journalists. Egypt is ranked 159th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. News Help by sharing this information Organisation last_img read more
