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’ Sharescenter_img When it comes to performance, not all equity funds are equal. Some fund managers are able to consistently deliver fantastic returns for investors. Others, however, regularly underperform.With that in mind, I want to highlight the three UK equity funds on the Hargreaves Lansdown platform (from the UK All Companies sector) that have delivered the highest returns to investors over the last five years. All three of these funds have outperformed broad market indexes, such as the FTSE 100 and the FTSE All-Share, by a wide margin.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…Top fund performanceAt the top of the list is the Chelverton UK Equity Growth fund. It’s returned 85% over the five-year period, which is an excellent performance. By contrast, the FTSE 100 index has returned a total of -3%, while the FTSE 100 All-Share has delivered a return of about -2%.One reason Chelverton has outperformed is that it has a focus on small- and medium-sized UK companies outside the FTSE 100. These types of companies tend to grow faster than large-cap businesses. It also focuses on high-quality companies that have competitive advantages and are cash generative. This approach reduces the risk of big losses. According to Hargreaves Lansdown, the top holdings are currently Future, Volution Group, Elementis, Dotdigital, and SDL.Overall, this fund has delivered very impressive returns since its launch in October 2014. I see it as a solid choice for growth investors with a higher tolerance for risk. Fees are 0.94% per year through Hargreaves Lansdown, plus platform fees.Warren Buffett-like approachIn second place is the CFP SDL UK Buffettology fund. This has delivered a return of 66% over the last half-decade. That equates to an annualised return of about 10.7%, which is a top performance given the circumstances.Like the Chelverton, Buffettology isn’t your average UK equity fund. Here, portfolio manager Keith Ashworth-Lord invests with a Warren Buffett-like approach, focusing on companies that have strong competitive advantages. He also focuses heavily on the small-cap area of the market, although the fund does hold some FTSE 100 giants. Top holdings, according to Hargreaves, are currently Games Workshop Group, Liontrust Asset Management, Dart Group, London Stock Exchange and AB Dynamics.For risk-tolerant UK growth investors, I see this fund as another solid pick. Fees are 1.19% through Hargreaves.Recovery situationsFinally, in third place, is the Slater Recovery fund, which is managed by Mark Slater. In terms of performance, this fund has delivered a total return of 53% over the last five years.This is another unique UK equity fund. Here, the portfolio’s core is invested in high-quality companies with low valuations relative to earnings growth. However, the fund also invests in recovery situations, and stocks trading at a discount to their asset value.Specifically, Slater likes companies with strong balance sheets, powerful competitive positions, and high returns on capital. Current top holdings are Future, Codemasters, Alliance Pharma, IWG, and Tesco, according to Hargreaves Lansdown.Given its unique approach, I think this fund could be a good way to add diversification to a portfolio. Ongoing fees are 0.83% per year through Hargreaves Lansdown.

Forget gold and Cash ISAs! I’d buy cheap UK shares after the stock market crash

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Forget gold and Cash ISAs! I’d buy cheap UK shares after the stock market crash Image source: Getty Images. The stock market crash appears to have pushed some investors away from UK shares and towards less risky assets such as gold and Cash ISAs.In the short run, this could prove to be a sound move. Indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 face uncertain futures that could produce paper losses for investors.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…However, in the long run, a portfolio of stocks is likely to outperform less risky assets. Therefore, with share prices currently low, now could be the right time to focus your portfolio on the stock market.Reducing risks after the stock market crashIt’s natural for any investor to feel cautious about equities after the stock market crash. The FTSE 100 continues to trade around 20% lower than it did at the start of the year, while the economic outlook is very uncertain. As such, a second downturn could realistically take place in the coming months.Furthermore, seeking to avoid potential losses from a challenging stock market outlook is also normal behaviour. This has led many investors to sell stocks to buy gold in recent months, or to reduce risk even further by using a Cash ISA.Gold has a long history as a defensive asset, being a store of wealth in previous downturns. Meanwhile, Cash ISAs come with no risk of loss. For some investors, this may make them attractive after the stock market crash despite their exceptionally low rate of returns.Capitalising on cheap UK sharesWhile gold and Cash ISAs may reduce the prospect of losses in the coming months from a second stock market crash, they may also mean investors fail to capitalise on low valuations among UK shares. At the present time, many high-quality British stocks trade at prices significantly below their historic averages.In some cases, their valuations don’t fully reflect their growth prospects or their financial situations. As such, they could offer improving share price performances in the long run.Certainly, a recovery doesn’t seem all that likely at the present time. Economic data is mixed, while political risks are high owing to Brexit and the US election. However, the track record of the stock market shows it has always recovered from its declines to post new record highs.It can take many years for this process to take place after a stock market crash. But investors with a long time horizon are likely to have sufficient time available to benefit from an improving economic outlook and strengthening investor sentiment.Buying cheap shares todayTherefore, while buying UK shares after the stock market crash may not feel like the right move, it could lead to impressive returns in the long run. Over time, they could produce higher returns than gold or Cash ISAs that improves your financial situation.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here On this day in history: September 20th, 1973Beats Bobby Riggs 6-4, 6-3, 6-3From The History ChannelOn this day in 1973, in a highly publicized “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match, top women’s player Billie Jean King, 29, beats Bobby Riggs, 55, a former No. 1 ranked men’s player. Riggs (1918-1995), a self-proclaimed male chauvinist, had boasted that women were inferior, that they couldn’t handle the pressure of the game and that even at his age he could beat any female player. The match was a huge media event, witnessed in person by over 30,000 spectators at the Houston Astrodome and by another 50 million TV viewers worldwide. King made a Cleopatra-style entrance on a gold litter carried by men dressed as ancient slaves, while Riggs arrived in a rickshaw pulled by female models. Legendary sportscaster Howard Cosell called the match, in which King beat Riggs 6-4, 6-3, 6-3. King’s achievement not only helped legitimize women’s professional tennis and female athletes, but it was seen as a victory for women’s rights in general.King was born Billie Jean Moffitt on November 22, 1943, in Long Beach, California. Growing up, she was a star softball player before her parents encouraged her to try tennis, which was considered more ladylike. She excelled at the sport and in 1961, at age 17, during her first outing to Wimbledon, she won the women’s doubles title. King would rack up a total of 20 Wimbledon victories, in singles, doubles and mixed doubles, over the course of her trailblazing career. In 1971, she became the first female athlete to earn more than $100,000 in prize money in a single season. However, significant pay disparities still existed between men and women athletes and King lobbied hard for change. In 1973, the U.S. Open became the first major tennis tournament to hand out the same amount of prize money to winners of both sexes.In 1972, King became the first woman to be chosen Sports Illustrated’s“Sportsperson of the Year” and in 1973, she became the first president of the Women’s Tennis Association. King also established a sports foundation and magazine for women and a team tennis league. In 1974, as a coach of the Philadelphia Freedoms, one of the teams in the league, she became the first woman to head up a professional co-ed team.The “mother of modern sports” retired from tennis with 39 Grand Slam career titles. She remained active as a coach, commentator and advocate for women’s sports and other causes. In 2006, the USTA National Tennis Center, home of the U.S. Open, was renamed in King’s honor. During the dedication ceremony, tennis great John McEnroe called King “the single most important person in the history of women’s sports.” Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 You have entered an incorrect email address!

UNAC 2020 Conference aims to unite the antiwar movement!

first_imgWith protesters marching in hundreds of cities around the world against the U.S. empire’s war plans against Iran and Iraq, including millions in Baghdad, the need for a unified anti-imperialist movement in the U.S. has grown. Central to organizing of hundreds of demonstrations against U.S. wars, sanctions and occupations has been the United National Antiwar Coalition. One of the largest progressive alliances in the U.S., UNAC works with hundreds of organizations across the country. UNAC will hold its first national conference since 2017 from Feb. 21 to 23 in New York City at The People’s Forum.UNAC drew over 350 activists to its 2017 conference in Richmond, Va. Since then, UNAC has sent delegations to Venezuela, Ukraine, Syria and Cuba and has organized conferences on U.S./NATO military bases in Baltimore, Md., and Dublin, Ireland. UNAC has actively opposed AFRICOM, the militarization of police departments and punishing sanctions against 39 nations. Members of UNAC, as part of the Embassy Defenders Collective, face charges for fighting to prevent the illegal Venezuelan coup government from taking over Venezuela’s Embassy in Washington, D.C.The theme of the 2020 conference is “Rise Against Militarism, Racism and the Climate Crisis — Building Power Together.” UNAC has always linked the struggle against racism, oppression and repression in the U.S. to imperialist plunder and devastation abroad. Speakers including Ajamu Baraka (Black Alliance for Peace), Frank Chapman (National Alliance Against Racism and Political Repression) and Glen Ford (Black Agenda Report) will connect the struggles workers and the oppressed face here and abroad.Makasi Motema (Peoples Power Assemblies-NYC), Sara Flounders (International Action Center), Bahman Azad (U.S. Peace Council) and others will address the devastating impact of U.S. sanctions and the new campaign, Sanctions Kill (sanctionskill.org).Joe Lombardo, a coordinator of UNAC since its founding 10 years ago, Medea Benjamin (CODEPINK) and Margaret Flowers (Popular Resistance and Venezuelan Embassy Protectors) will be among those speaking on the growing movement against U.S. regime-change wars.This conference promises to handle tough questions on how the antiwar movement should view developments in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Iran, Iraq, Libya, the People’s Republic of China, Syria, Yemen, among other countries. Workers World Party has been part of UNAC since its founding, bringing an understanding of the critical need for a united front against imperialism that focuses first and foremost on the crimes of the U.S.  For more information and to register, go to unacconference2020.org/.

Federal appeal court refuses rehearing in Josh Wolf case

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemned as “absurd inflexibility” the decision of a federal appeal court to refuse to rehear the case of Josh Wolf, in prison since 18 September for refusing to hand over his full video footage shot at a demonstration that turned violent, in July 2005.The blogger is therefore likely to stay in custody until July 2007, when a grand jury could decide to release him on bail.“This young blogger does not represent any threat to national security, so keeping him in custody is a completely disproportionate step,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said after the 16 November ruling. “The judges seem to want to teach a lesson to Wolf, a young man whose insolence exasperated them, when their role should have been simply to give the law,” it added. November 17, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Federal appeal court refuses rehearing in Josh Wolf case NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say June 3, 2021 Find out more News Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says News June 7, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas ———————————————–20.09.06Josh Wolf sent back to prison in case of “judicial persecution”Reporters Without Borders today accused the US justice system of “persecuting” freelance video journalist and blogger Josh Wolf after three appeal court judges decided on 18 September to revoke his bail and send him back to prison for refusing to hand over his unedited video footage of a demonstration to a grand jury. Wolf had until 1 p.m. today to report to the federal prison in Dublin, California, where he was already held from 1 August to 1 September.“We say again that the federal judicial authorities cannot invoke national security to imprison Wolf, as they have – abusively – in contempt of court proceedings against other journalists involving professional secrecy,” Reporters Without Borders said. “At no time has Wolf tried to run away since these proceedings were brought against him. The month he already spent in prison was both absurd and unjust. Sending him back is cowardly and persecutory.”The press freedom organisation added: “Would Wolf be suffering this fate if he were not a 24-year-old freelance journalist? We doubt it. And he was given such a short deadline to return to the prison that his lawyers did not even have time to appeal against the latest ruling.”Wolf’s case goes back to July 2005, when he filmed a protest in San Francisco against a G8 summit taking place in Scotland. A clash between protesters and police led to a police car being slightly damaged. Wolf posted his film of the protest on his blog. It was also aired by cable TV station and then picked up by local affiliates of the national networks. Although Wolf always denied having footage of the attack on the police car, a federal judge ordered him to hand over all of his unedited footage to a grand jury investigation.Wolf refused on the basis of his rights under the US constitution’s First Amendment and a Californian shield law that allows journalists to refuse to name sources or surrender unpublished material and notes. Similar laws exist in 32 other states but not at the federal level. Because of his refusal, a federal judge held him in contempt of court on 1 August. Denied bail, he was immediately taken off to a Dublin prison with the intention that he could stay there until he agreed to hand over his footage or until the term of the grand jury investigation expires in July 2007.The appeal court released Wolf on bail on 1 September at his lawyers’ request. But on 11 September, a panel formed by three of the court’s judges rejected the substance of his lawyers’ arguments and upheld the lower court’s decision to hold him in contempt. Two days later, federal prosecutors filed a motion for his bail to be revoked. It was the same three-judge panel that approved this motion on 18 September.Wolf’s lawyers say they plan to ask the full appeal court to review the case. ————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org to go further RSF_en center_img News Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts A federal appeal court refused a rehearing on 16 November in the case of Josh Wolf, who may now have to stay in custody until July 2007.
