Local councils will see the amount of cash they get from central government slashed by 17 per cent, or around £6.5bn, next year.Communities secretary Eric Pickles said that no council would suffer a reduction in its total spending power of more than 8.9 per cent, once council tax receipts and NHS funding for social care is taken into account. The average reduction will be 4.4 per cent. Meanwhile, Pickles unveiled his localism bill, which gives councils more control over local planning decisions. It also paves the way for communities to take over libraries and other services that are threatened with closure. Local authorities have a statutory duty to protect some services, such as child protection and support for the disabled, meaning more widely-used services like libraries and swimming pools will bear the brunt of cuts. Meanwhile, policing minister Nick Herbert said police forces in England and Wales would face cuts in central funding of four per cent next year, and five per cent in the year after.Herbert acknowledged that the savings would be “challenging”, but said front-line services could be shielded by efficiencies and back-office savings. Meanwhile, the Department for Education admitted that schools in England and Wales would not see their budgets rise in real terms over the next four years, due to rising prices. A Department for Education spokesman said: “Spending totals were based on its best forecast of inflation at the time, produced by independent Office for Budget Responsibility.“We always knew these were forecasts of inflation and subject to change – undoubtedly these will change again.“We have not cut the schools budget totals – cash limits remain as announced in the Spending Review.” whatsapp Tags: NULLcenter_img Show Comments ▼ Share Monday 13 December 2010 8:59 pm KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemlast_img read more

Stock market crash: I’d buy cheap UK shares to make a million like Warren Buffett

first_img Kevin Godbold | Thursday, 30th July, 2020 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The stock market crash in the spring caused many shares to look cheap. Some rebounded after the crash. But many stocks appear to be rolling over again now, perhaps because of the difficulties in the real-world economy.Indeed, Covid-19 hasn’t gone away. And many companies are struggling to turn a profit because of increased costs and lower revenues. However, Warren Buffett made many of his billions by investing during uncertain economic times when stocks were cheap.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…Will there be a second stock market crash in 2020?The great thing about investing in shares when they’re down is the underlying businesses may go on to recover over time. Indeed, if the problems a company is facing prove to be temporary, shares can rise again. And that can happen for two reasons. Firstly, the share price may elevate to reflect the underlying operational progress. And secondly, the stock market can mark the valuation higher to match improved rates of earnings growth.So that potential double-whammy can really drive up a stock. And it’s one of the reasons Buffett has been so successful by investing in good-quality businesses when they’re struggling and the stocks are out of favour with the market.You’ve probably heard some of his advice urging us to buy shares when others are selling. For example: “Be greedy when others are fearful.” Advice like that indicates a contrarian approach to investing, which goes against the grain of most people’s emotions.Right now, many people are fretting about a possible second stock market crash this year. And, of course, it’s possible that we’ll see one, but not certain.  One way of dealing with the uncertainty is to listen to the news flowing from the individual company shares you are interested in buying. And keep a close eye on the valuation stocks are assigning each business.If you focus like that it may give you the confidence to follow Buffett’s contrarian advice. But even he doesn’t manage to time all his stock purchases to perfection. Sometimes shares fall further after he’s bought them. But I reckon the best way to deal with situations like that is to adopt a long-term investing perspective and aim to hold for years rather than weeks or months.When to avoid buyingThe other half of Buffett’s advice is to “be fearful when others are greedy.” And with that, he’s talking about stock market exuberance. Sometimes individual share prices, or the entire stock market, can rise too far. And when that happens, valuations can move too high.A high valuation makes it hard to bag a successful investment. Indeed, even great businesses can make poor investments if you pay too much for them. So Buffett tends to be reluctant to buy stocks when other investors are snapping them up with enthusiasm. And that usually happens when everything looks rosy in the economic garden.The coronavirus pandemic has made the economic outlook uncertain. But it could have created ideal conditions to help us begin to make a million from shares, the Warren Buffett way.

The Lloyds share price spiked to 41p before falling today! Would I buy LLOY now?

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares After years and years of share-price declines, could the tide finally be turning for Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) and its unloved stock? And could the Lloyds share price get past 50p and reach three figures again? Let’s take a look at today’s news for clues.Lloyds releases its 2020 results. They’re not so badToday (Wednesday) saw the Black Horse bank unveil its full-year results for 2020. Given that the world is still battling a global pandemic, they’re not as bad as feared. As a result, the Lloyds share price spiked upwards this morning, before sliding back.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…Being the UK’s largest retail lender in the biggest-ever recession is obviously not ideal circumstances for Lloyds. With over 26m customers, Lloyds has heavy exposure to higher bad debts and loan losses from consumers and businesses. But these impairments totalled a mere £128m in the fourth quarter. Clearly, borrowers are still paying their debts. Thanks to this steep fall in loan-loss provisions, Lloyds actually made a profit in 2020. Yet, as I write, the Lloyds share price now trades fractionally down on the day.In 2020, loan losses at Lloyds totalled £4.2bn. These reserves crashed Lloyds’ pre-tax profit by over seven-tenths (72%) to £1.2bn. Still, this means that Lloyds averaged a monthly profit of £100m in the worst British economy in history. Earnings per share collapsed by two-thirds (66%) to 1.2p. Thanks to this profit, and with approval from the UK banking regulator, Lloyds was able to reinstate its cancelled dividend. It’s only 0.57p a share, but that’s the maximum allowed by the Bank of England at the moment. This equates to just short of a 1.5% dividend yield, based on the current Lloyds share price of 39.06p. At least that’s a start.Despite the economic ravages of Covid-19, the Lloyds balance sheet is in very good shape. Core tier one equity (one measure of financial strength) rose again, this time to 16.2% of risk-weighted assets. This is way above the regulatory minimum laid down by regulations. Also, Lloyds’ net interest margin (NIM) was 2.46% — pretty solid, given the circumstances. Yet the Lloyds share price failed to hold onto earlier gains, spiking to 41p after the market opened, before dropping back by 2p.The Lloyds share price should benefit from recoveryIn 2020, the Black Horse could barely trot, hobbled by Covid-19 restrictions. But when this big beast starts galloping again, this could inject new life into the Lloyds share price. Of course, if the coronavirus crisis worsens or lingers too long, this spells bad news for British banks. But with mass vaccinations rolling out rapidly across the UK, this gives me cause for optimism.Today, with the Lloyds share price hovering just above 39p, this values this British institution at £27.8bn. That’s a very modest price tag for a very big bank. Right now, Lloyds shares are bang in the middle of their 52-week range between 23.59p on 22 September 2020 and 54.38p on 24 February 2020. In addition, Lloyds is valued at around half of its net tangible book value (0.5 x NTBV). Summing up, Lloyds shares look cheap to me today, assuming that all goes well in the second half of 2021. I might even have to buy some Lloyds stock for my family’s income portfolio! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Cliff D’Arcy Cliffdarcy has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Guatemala signs ‘Safe Third Country’

first_imgThe governments of the U.S. and Guatemala on July 26 signed a “Safe Third Country” agreement, forcing migrants applying for asylum in the U.S. to do so from Guatemala. This agreement is part of the Trump administration’s broader efforts to prevent migrants from entering the U.S. These include the construction of a racist border wall and a recent ruling, currently tied up in the courts, that would disqualify migrants from applying for asylum in the U.S. if they had passed through neighboring countries without applying for asylum there.The agreement relies on an exemption in U.S. laws on asylum application that invalidates applications from migrants who pass through so-called “Safe Third Countries” en route to the U.S. However, the law provides no definition of a “safe third country,” and until now the only country to have signed such an agreement is Canada.In Guatemala, critics of the agreement — including both second-round presidential candidates, the Constitutional Court and social movements — have argued that there is no way that Guatemala could be considered a safe country.One of the most repeated points raised against the agreement is the simple fact that Guatemalan nationals themselves are a large percentage of the migrants arriving at the southern U.S. border. The violence, poverty and climate-change-induced droughts that cause people to flee the country are cited as evidence that Guatemala is not equipped to receive the asylum seekers the U.S. plans to send it.Guatemalan Minister of Foreign Affairs Sandra Jovel stated during an Aug. 6 public meeting with one of the presidential candidates that she could not disclose the estimated number of migrants the country would be expected to receive, due to concerns that human trafficking networks might use that information. (tinyurl.com/y3pmhtdc — in Spanish) If Guatemala were truly a “Safe Third Country,” there would be no reason to hide this information from organized crime!Poverty and climate-change-induced drought cause families to flee Guatemala.U.S. tries to hide its crimes by exporting themThe U.S. government, with its expansive intelligence apparatus and historical control over the region, is perfectly aware that Guatemala is unprepared and unable to meet the humanitarian obligations of feeding and housing asylum seekers.However, the conditions in the U.S. border concentration camps and the president’s encouragement of extrajudicial violence against Latin Americans are enough to show that the U.S. does not actually care about crimes against humanity committed against migrants.The true purpose of the Safe Third Country agreement is to create a layer of plausible deniability with respect to the treatment of migrants. Instead of building concentration camps on the border with Mexico, they would rather turn Guatemala itself into such a camp.The neocolonial relationship between Guatemala and the U.S. means that even if the U.S. washes its hands of the concentration camps by exporting them to Guatemala, the same white supremacist, imperialist, capitalist ruling class is designing the policies.This is not the first instance of the U.S. trying to sanitize its image without fundamentally changing its anti-migrant policy. Earlier this year, threats of tariffs and even stricter border controls forced the Mexican government to implement harsher security measures against migrants travelling through on their way to the U.S.Guatemalan government bows to economic coercionAs soon as the news broke that the Guatemalan government was in negotiations to sign the anti-migrant agreement with the U.S., the Constitutional Court issued a ruling that any such agreement would require congressional approval.This move was intended to delay or even block the agreement, while forcing the government to make its intentions public and allow for democratic debate. It was significant enough that President Jimmy Morales was forced to temporarily back off and make public statements denying that he was negotiating any agreement, although he had scheduled a trip to Washington that same week without stating a reason.The response from the White (Supremacist) House was to almost immediately threaten to freeze remittances, impose tariffs or even impose a travel ban on Guatemalan nationals. A few days after Donald Trump announced that these options were being considered, the Guatemalan interior minister signed the agreement, without any congressional input.Beyond demonstrating the cowardice and subservience of the Guatemalan ruling class to the interests of U.S. imperialism, this series of events illustrates the mechanisms of imperial control in Central America.Guatemala is primarily an export-oriented agricultural economy, growing coffee, bananas, palm oil and other cash crops for sale on the international market. The U.S. is the single biggest customer for Guatemala, absorbing approximately 40 percent of its agricultural exports.On the other side of the economic relationship, remittances (money sent to Guatemala from citizens living in the U.S.) account for approximately 12 percent of the country’s gross domestic product. Many families, especially in rural areas, depend on relatives living and working in the U.S. for a major or even primary source of their income.Between its ability to export products and a heavy reliance on remittances, the Guatemalan economy is doubly dependent on its northern neighbor. This double dependency becomes a triple dependency when one accounts for foreign capital investment. This forms the economic basis of the political subservience of the Guatemalan ruling class, who are really junior partners in the business of exploiting Guatemalan workers and peasants.Student, Indigenous and campesino resistanceThe people of Guatemala, unlike its rulers, have never accepted imperial decrees, whether from Spain, England or the U.S., without a fight. The response to this most recent decree has been no different, and mobilizations began almost as soon as images appeared in the news showing the interior minister signing the agreement.The public outcry has been so great that both presidential candidates in this month’s runoff election have been forced to publicly condemn the agreement, though they are unlikely to put up any real opposition after the election.Because of the Constitutional Court ruling, several special sessions of Congress were called to ratify the agreement. The first was disrupted by students at the public University of San Carlos (USAC), who prevented the session from voting. Another session was called for two days later. It failed to reach a quorum after an even larger protest, once again led by the students, formed outside the building where it was being held.While demonstrating against the agreement, the USAC students began an occupation of the campus, with the twin demands of dropping the agreement and rolling back measures they fear are a precursor to privatization of the university. This occupation has spread quickly, with students occupying 24 university centers across the country.The occupation has included university clinics, so medical students have set up community clinics to continue providing checkups for surrounding communities.On Aug. 6, protesters blocked roads in most regions of the country, rejecting the agreement, standing in solidarity with the students, and raising several long-standing demands, such as renationalization of the electric company. The action was called by CODECA, an Indigenous and campesino organization whose presidential candidate, Thelma Cabrera, had shocked the political establishment by winning fourth place in the first round of presidential elections.The Guatemalan government has stubbornly refused to back down from the Safe Third Country agreement — its masters in Washington have left it no choice. But the righteous anger of the Guatemalan masses over this injustice is quickly becoming too great for the government to control, even with the backing of the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
