Reasons I’m investing in FTSE 100 shares right now

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Over the last 12 months, the FTSE 100 has fallen by 13%. FTSE 100 shares are often from ‘old’ industries such as oil & gas and banking. The UK’s elite index has been left behind by those indexes, such as the S&P 500, that have more exciting, innovative technology companies.While I want some exposure to that, and indeed have an S&P 500 tracker, I think 2021 could be a year of recovery for the FTSE 100. However, a great deal depends on the virus, the vaccine rollout, and the hopefully resulting economic recovery.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…4 reasons that give me optimismThe first reason is value. Value is relative, but in my opinion the FTSE 100 offers plenty of scope for recovery from the pandemic, especially from financials. Low price-to-earnings ratios make me comfortable investing in UK large caps, such as banks and insurers. This provides a potential margin of safety. As alluded to there could also be a boost in 2021 from shares bouncing back. All the more so if the economy does well as some commentators, and I, think it will do. The flipside, of course, is the economy may not do well and banks and oil & gas and industries that dominate the FTSE 100 may continue to underperform.I think although there is plenty of innovation out there, many FTSE 100 companies are built on proven business models. I think in most cases, these should endure through the coming years and for decades to come.Even big companies have some agility and with good management often have the financial resources to move with the times. An example of this is Royal Dutch Shell investing heavily in renewables as its industry changes. Fourth, with dividends having been cut in 2020, there’s plenty of scope for dividend growth in the coming years. This is something I’m personally very excited about. So I plan to pick up a future passive income on the cheap. What are the drawbacks of FTSE 100 sharesDespite the cheapness of many FTSE 100 shares there’s a risk it could continue to underperform the US, as it starkly did in 2020. If lockdowns continue to inflate the share prices of technology companies, then investing in that market could be a better option. Also, some investment professionals are arguing emerging markets could have a strong 2020 as the dollar depreciates.The UK could of course by knocked off course by new strains of the virus that vaccines can’t be adapted to protect against. Technology companies could continue prefer listing in the US over the UK, which could hold back the market. As yet unknown consequences of Brexit could come to the fore, despite recent positive comments from the Barclays CEO. All these could hit the FTSE 100 and consequently the shares of UK large-cap companies.However, on the balance of things and as I’m based in the UK I plan that a lot of my new investments, cash permitting, will be in FTSE 100 shares. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Bolivarian soccer genius–Argentinian Diego Maradona ¡Presente!

first_imgBy Danny Shaw and William CamacaroThe slightly edited article first appeared on popularresistance.org/ on Nov. 27.The fighting peoples of the world lost a humble legend on Nov. 25. Diego Armando Maradona was 60 years old. Arguably the greatest soccer player to ever grace the pitches, the spirited striker combined unparalleled skills in his sport and an unflinching outspokenness before oppression. No other sports figure’s public statements and transformation have equally captured the changing momentum across Latin America.Diego Maradona, wearing Che Guevara shirt, referred to Fidel Castro as a “second father to him” following Fidel’s death in 2016The hundreds of thousands of tributes being paid throughout the world portray a particular image: Maradona in close solidarity with the biggest progressive leaders of the social reformist wave embraced by the peoples of Latin America, the so-called Pink Tide. In fact, Maradona put to the service of the Bolivarian revolution in Latin America all his fame, his influence and his skilled legs. He embraced the peoples of Cuba, Venezuela, Brazil, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Argentina and more, by developing deep friendships with Fidel, Raúl, Lula, Evo, Hugo, Nicolás, Daniel, the Kirchners and many more.Maradona was for the people of South America what Muhammad Ali was for Black America.The Falklands WarBorn in Lanús and raised in the oppressed community of Villa Fiorito in the outskirts of Buenos Aires; “the golden kid’s” (pibe de oro) talent from an early age fetched him million-dollar contracts first in his homeland and then in Barcelona and Napoli. (tinyurl.com/yybh3y2l)No stranger to controversy, “the soccer god,” with his rebellious natural hair, was irreverent before elites and defiant to the core. When a Spanish player hurled racist epithets at him because of his Indigenous ancestry, Maradona headbutted him, leading to a brawl that was broadcast before King Juan Carlos, in front of 100,000 fans in the stadium, and with half of Spain watching on television.Maradona, who was 22 years old at the time, was radicalized by England’s 1982 Falklands War assault on his homeland, known in Latin America as “la guerra de las Malvinas” and “la guerra del Atlántico Sur.” (elcomercio.pe/)Causing untold agony and trauma, hundreds of soldiers died on both sides, and numerous veterans committed suicide for years after. Reagan’s U.S. claimed to be a “mediator,” but stayed faithful to their junior colonial partner led by the ultraconservative Margaret Thatcher.This was the backdrop of the 1986 semifinal showdown between the two countries, without diplomatic relations, at the World Cup in Mexico City. Argentina was South America, and South America was Argentina.During this fateful match, Maradona famously scored a crafty goal where slow-motion highlights show he illegally used his hand to redirect the ball into the English net. When the English team accused him after the game at the press conference of cheating by using his hand, he responded that “sería la mano de dios,” “it must have been the hand of god.” (tinyurl.com/y4zfrdjo) Sports analysts applauded the “picardía” or Argentine cunningness behind the maneuver. The second goal was a miracle of human athletic skill. Maradona made a full sprint, starting on the Argentinian side, far from the English goalkeeper, and clearing a path through a minefield of English defenders, to execute a stunning goal that went down in sports history as “the goal of the century.” (tinyurl.com/yxkg6gn7)These heroic acts sealed Diego’s destiny as an enormously popular figure combatting neocolonialism.To beat England in Latin America was to exact revenge on the invading enemy. The soccer field was an extension of the battlefield; the arrogant English were expelled. This was the symbolic recuperation of Argentine and South American dignity.“Patria Es Humanidad” (“The Homeland is Humanity”)Jose Martí wrote that “our homeland is humanity.” The relationship Maradona established with Cuba was the full expression of the Cuban historic leader and poet’s words.In 2000, an overweight and beleaguered Maradona travelled to Cuba to treat his drug addiction.  Fidel Castro visited him in his worst moments and helped take care of him. The Cuban president took off his military coat and gave it to the patient. Maradona said he adored Fidel, because he was “genuine and cared about human problems that others brushed aside.”The down-and-out “wretched of the earth” was not rejected in Havana; he was accepted, treated like a dignified human being and loved. This moment of healing was another of Maradona’s entry points into the tide of resistance that was flowing across the Americas.The same year, Japan denied Maradona a visa because of strict laws barring anybody from the country who had a history with drugs. Today, however, past and present Japanese soccer players pay tribute to Maradona.The frontlines in the battle of ideasThe Argentinian took great pride in the rising of Latin America’s second independence which began on December 6, 1998, with Hugo Chávez’s electoral victory in Venezuela.In 2005, the Frente Amplio’s Tabaré Vázquez received George Bush in Uruguay in a move that was considered a betrayal by his party and the region. Bush was promoting the FTAA, the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas.  “Free trade” to Maradona and millions of Latin Americans is the freedom of the U.S. and transnational capital to expand its tentacles across more of the continent.The Bolivarian Revolution was advancing across Latin America and had recently paid off Argentina’s foreign debt. Hugo Chávez traveled to Argentina to contest the interventionist and free trade agenda of the U.S. leader. La Plata river divided the two countries and the two sides of history. Rising to the historical occasion, with Diego by his side donning a “Stop Bush” T-shirt, the Venezuelan leader famously chanted: “El que no brinca es yankee.” (If you don’t jump, you’re an imperialist.) Maradona gave credence to Evo Morales’ catch phrase: “The empire stands with the right wing, football stands with the left.”This was the battle of ideas Castro spoke of.A strong backer of the Pink TideIt is perhaps difficult to appreciate Maradona’s greatness in a country whose sports loyalties are divided between baseball, North American football and basketball. In South America and Europe, soccer is king. In Napoli, restaurants have alcoves reserved for hanging religious idols. There beside them is Maradona. The mayor has announced the famed Saint Paul stadium should be renamed after one of the city’s most beloved.Rising to the historical occasion, with Diego by his side donning a “Stop Bush” T-shirt, the Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez famously chanted: “El que no brinca es yankee.” (If you don’t jump, you’re an imperialist.)And Maradona gave credence to Evo Morales’ catch phrase: “The empire stands with the right wing, football stands with the left.”The mainstream press is also remembering the football titan, but consciously shying away from his political commitments. Other outlets are accusing Maradona of being anti-American. Like the political leaders he so admired, Maradona never expressed ire towards the people of the United States, but rather towards its political elites who thought they were “the county sheriff.”Through the years of the Pink Tide, Maradona was a regular on television programs and at rallies with Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Daniel Ortega, José “Pepe” Mujica and other anti-imperialist figures of the continent. His tattoos of Ernesto Che Guevara and Fidel Castro brought a new meaning to the phrase “he wore his feelings on his sleeve.”His program “De Zurda” on TeleSUR in 2014 with Víctor Hugo Morales, the famed Uruguayan sportscaster, combined humor, sports analysis and progressive political commentary. Last year, following a coaching win in April, he stated, “I want to dedicate this victory to Nicolás Maduro and all Venezuelans who are suffering. These Yankees, the sheriffs of the world, think just because they have the world’s biggest bomb they can push us around. But no, not us.”Those who had the honor to meet Dieguito remember him as a people’s person who was always accessible. Though he had his own personal struggles, he never wavered in his commitments to elevating the voices of the poor and defending the underdog. Yesterday, on the fourth anniversary of Fidel Castro’s passing, one of his students and admirers joined him in eternity, having left so much for us all to savor and learn from.Danny Shaw and William Camacaro are the senior research fellow and senior analyst, respectively at the Council on Hemispheric Affairs. Fred Mills and Patricio Zamorano contributed as co-editors.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The petitioner, a law student has filed the plea through Advocates Ashima Mandla and Mandakini Singh calling the arrests violative of Articles 14,21,22 of the Constitution of India. According to the petitioner, he has the locus standi to file the PIL as around 200 persons, including farmers have been missing since January 26th/27th, 2021, and plea for habeas corpus can be invoked by any person, on behalf of illegally detained person. The Petitioner received information through personal survey, newspaper reports, media reports and social activists that people have been illegally detained from the Singhu border, Ghazipurborder and Tikri border, in the absence of any FIR, and in violation of the basic fabric of liberty. The petitioner also has the names of 15 persons who have been missing and detained since Janaury 26th/27th, 2021, and despite a passage of over 4 days, no legally tenable reason has surfaced supporting such detention. The petition has stated that the Delhi Police had on January 27th circulated in media that over 200 persons had been detained in connection with the alleged violence in the national capital during the farmers’ tractor rally and 22 FIRs were registered. But the Delhi Police failed to comply with procedural formalities like signing of the arrest memo, informing the next of kin within a period of 8-12 hours, and production of the persons before the Magistrate u/s 167 CrPC. This failure on part of the Delhi Police therefore falls within the contours of ‘illegal detention’. “It is pertinent to mention that the mere act of detaining in police custody in the absence of registration of FIR(s) qua detained persons and subsequently, without production of detained persons before Magistrate within 24 hours in compliance with Section 167 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and non-compliance of the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in the case of D.K. Basu v. State of West Bengal., (1997) shall tantamount to illegal detention and violating Articles 14, 21 and 22 of the Constitution of India and thereby praying for a Writ of Habeas Corpus be issued by this Hon’ble Court directing for the immediate release of the detained persons.” – the plea reads.According to the plea, the notion of liberty cannot be diffused even in emergencies. The constitution is the paramount and supreme law of the land, and it embodies the safeguard that if a person is detained otherwise than in accordance with law, the constitutional safeguard can be invoked to enforce the Right of Personal Liberty.Picture Courtesy: Hindustan TimesSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
