Weighing up the value of Lloyds Banking Group (LSE:LLOY) versus Carnival (LSE:CCL) may seem like a futile exercise. Neither FTSE 100 share has held much appeal recently. The Lloyds share price is down over 50% year-to-date, while the Carnival share price has fallen over 66%. Nevertheless, I think it is worth looking at their viability as long-term investments. Is the Lloyds share price a bargain?Earnings for the second quarter of 2020 are likely to make grim reading in the banking sector. This period is fully in the coronavirus lockdown and this will be reflected in Lloyds’ report. The bank has already put money aside to cover unpaid loans, but the extent of defaults is likely to be clearer once it releases Q2 earnings.  Lloyds has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 9 and earnings per share are 3p.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…Some investors still see strength in the long-term outlook for Lloyds compared with its European banking peers. Regulatory changes, implemented after the 2008 financial crash, should ensure Lloyds can cope with losses. Although UK interest rates are very low, at least they are not negative (yet!). While this may give reassurance that Lloyds is not about to go bust, without a dividend to sweeten the deal, I see little appeal in investing in share today.Cheap is not always cheerfulFrom above £37 in January, the Carnival share price now trades around the £12 level. A dismal drop for the world’s largest leisure travel company. The crux of Carnival’s downward spiral stems from the global coronavirus pandemic and subsequent travel bans. Carnival’s P/E ratio is 3 and earnings per share are £3.52. These metrics point to a cheap share, but that does not necessarily ring true. A lot will hinge on how Carnival emerges from the pandemic and how profitable it proves to be in the months and years ahead. With respect to both its business and share price performance, I think it will take time for Carnival to recover its previous glory.It is a well-known brand with a loyal following and the allure of a holiday will continue to entice in the years to come. I am in no rush to travel again, but many people I have spoken to cannot wait to book their next holiday. Clever marketing campaigns may well persuade us to forget our fears, and perhaps the travel industry will bounce back quickly. I imagine consumer spending will be more cautious, so booking holidays far in advance may be less likely. The potential for a second coronavirus wave will also affect how promptly the travel industry regains trust and traction. I think it’s too soon to consider buying shares in Carnival, but I still think the FTSE 100 still holds some cheap shares to buy.  Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Enter Your Email Address The idea of working hard to choose a handful of FTSE 100 dividend shares and simply holding them for decades is attractive to me. Once the initial work has been done, the monitoring and maintenance of my portfolio would require modest time input.I could choose to take the dividend payments as a personal income. Or I could reinvest them to keep my investment pot growing. But I’m still young enough to be in the accumulation stage of my investing career, so the reinvestment option appeals to me the most. By aiming to grow my portfolio, I’ll have bigger resources to provide me with an income in the future, perhaps when I retire.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’d be selective about picking FTSE 100 dividend sharesHowever, successful dividend investing isn’t as easy as it at first might appear. There’s more to the strategy than simple hunting for the biggest dividend yields available in the FTSE 100. Sometimes, a big yield is a sign of trouble ahead in the underlying business. And that often means a dividend cut is on the way.I think one of the trickiest categories is cyclical shares. Companies with cyclical operations often display big dividend yields and low earnings multiples just when their stocks are at there most dangerous. Often those big yields arrive when the cyclical business has been earning fat and growing profits for a long period.However, the stock market – in all its collective wisdom – ‘knows’ there will be a downturn arriving at some point. So, the market tends to compress valuations. And that’s when we often see big yields and low valuations in cyclical stocks.But those attractive metrics can be a trap! What often follows with cyclical stocks is a big plunge in earnings, a crashing share price and dividend-slashing festival. I’d look no further than the London-listed banking shares for evidence. Indeed, their performance over the past decade has been instructional.I’d pick shares like theseAnd because I want to buy and hold my FTSE 100 dividend investments for decades, I’d put all cyclical stocks in the ‘too difficult’ pile and concentrate on dividend-paying shares with more defensive operations. So, it’s out the window with oil companies, banks, retailers, housebuilders, mining companies and the like. And I’d choose my stocks from sectors such as energy supply, utilities, fast-moving-consumer goods, healthcare and other defensive areas.I’d aim to buy and hold shares such as Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser in the fast-moving consumer goods sector. And in healthcare, I’d go for AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline and Smith & Nephew.  I’d also consider ultra-defensive ‘sin’ stocks such as British American Tobacco, Imperial Brands and premium alcoholic drinks supplier Diageo. Then in utilities and energy, I’d choose National Grid, SSE and Severn Trent. And I also like stocks such as Smurfit Kappa, Bunzl, Sage and DS Smith, which all fit the defensive theme.I’d put all those stocks on a watch list, follow the news they issue, and aim to buy shares in each one at opportune moments. For example, I’d be ready to pounce in the next stock market correction.

Officer Denson Hudson coming home Monday

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. In the early morning hours of March 18th 1941, Officer Denson Hudson’s watch ended.Shortly after 1 AM Hudson, of the Apopka Police Department, observed an open window at the Standard Oil Plant (now the Catfish Place) and approached it along with his partner (former Police Chief) Fred Risener. Upon further investigation, the two officers surprised two burglars breaking into the company safe. The suspects fired upon the two police officers, striking Hudson, who was taken to the Orange General Hospital where he died of a single gunshot wound that night.On March 18th, 1941 APD Officer Denson Hudson was shot and killed in the line of duty.Hudson was buried March 20, 1941, in Greenwood Cemetery in Apopka by Carey Hand Funeral Home with Reverend John Martin presiding. Deputy Hudson was survived by his wife Clio, and five children, Collis, Curtis, Flora, Clemmie Mae, and Betty.Over the years, most all of Hudson’s family has passed away, but he has not been forgotten by the Apopka Police Department.In 2012, the APD petitioned to have Hudson’s name added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall in Washington DC. Through this effort, his name was added to the more than 20,000 already engraved, recognizing those that paid the ultimate sacrifice.At 10:30 AM, a memorial service will be held, and a memorial plaque will be erected to honor Hudson’s sacrifice, at the Apopka Police Department, which is located at 112 East 6th Street in Apopka.Bagpipes will play “Coming Home”, “Amazing Grace” and “We Honor Our Fallen”. Captain Randall Fernandez, Chief Michael McKinley, and Mayor Joe Kilsheimer will speak. Belle Gilliam of the Apopka Historical Society and Hudson’s daughter Clemmie Mae Hicks will unveil the memorial plaque.And in the morning hours of Monday, May 15th, 2017, Hudson’s watch over the APD will begin again.

Recent Heat and Heavy Rain Could Take Top Off Some Indiana…

first_img Casteel-on-soybean-harvestSome Indiana soybean fields have been harvested, but the widespread harvest is likely a week or two away, according to Purdue Extension soybean specialist Shaun Casteel. He was part of the proceedings Thursday at the annual crops field day at the Agronomy Center for Research and Education northwest of the main campus.Casteel told HAT the recent late season heat might be a drag on yields.“When we have the 90-95-degree days, you go day after day and within a 24-hour period those fields are turning very fast,” he said. “I was in fields all day Wednesday and in fields Thursday and leaves are turning over. So, if they’re anything close to lower nitrogen content leaves are going to start dropping off. Probably the way you look at this is some of the icing on the cake is probably going to be taken off on a lot of this. We’re going to be shorting our seed fill window and a little bit on the seed fill rate. So, if anything, the time that we’re in seed fill is going to get shortened with some of these hotter temperatures.”Casteel said be prepared to get into the fields and cut beans when they’re ready. That will be earlier than normal this season.“We’ve been 10-14 days ahead of schedule with most everything across this season. Leaves are dropping in a lot of fields. I saw my first field get cut Wednesday. Be ready to get out there. It’s going to be mid-September to September 20th on a lot of these fields, and if they’re good to go let’s get them because I hate losing out on yield whenever we go cut beans that are 10 percent moisture. So, even if they’re green stems, be ready to go out there if the grain’s ready.”He confirmed 2018 has been a very good year for soybeans from planting until now, but in recent weeks some intense and saturating rains have compromised some root systems. Affected plants are shutting down because of the nitrogen content due to nodulation and fixation issues. Other than those pockets around the state, farmers’ soybean fields are set up for pretty good yields, Casteel says.

Beslan tragedy coverage obstructed

first_img September 9, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Beslan tragedy coverage obstructed Organisation May 27, 2021 Find out more BelarusEurope – Central Asia Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Nana Lezhava and Levan Tetvadze, of the Georgian TV channel Rustavi 2, were released on 8 September after being held for five days. Reporters Without Borders voiced concern that several journalists were prevented from covering the hostage tragedy in the North Ossetian city of Beslan, including Andrei Babitski and Anna Politkovskaya. 09.09.04 – Release of Rustavi-2 television crewNana Lezhava and Levan Tetvadze, of the Georgian TV channel Rustavi 2, were released on 8 September after being held for five days. The North Ossetia security services finally accepted that the two journalists’ passports giving their place of residence as Kazbegi meant they were legally allowed to travel to North Ossetia without visas.Elsewhere, Zurab Dvali, of Georgian TV channel Mze, and his cameraman were expelled from Beslan to Moscow on the morning of 8 September. Regional security forces who arrived at their hotel the evening before demanding they return to Moscow said they “could not guarantee the safety of Georgian journalists”. Their passports were confiscated but the following the day they were taken to the airport and were able to recover their passports on board their Moscow-bound flight.——06.09.04 – Beslan tragedy coverage obstructedRussian versionReporters Without Borders voiced concern today that several journalists were prevented from covering the hostage tragedy in the North Ossetian city of Beslan, including Andrei Babitski and Anna Politkovskaya, two Russian specialists in Chechnya, and two employees of the Georgian TV station Rustavi 2, Nana Lezhava and cameraman Levan Tetvadze, who have been held by the Beslan police since 4 September.”We urge you to ensure that journalists can carry out their work without hindrance, especially at this critical and tragic time when the population has a right to full, impartial and independent information,” the organisation said in a letter to Russian interior minister Rashid Nurgaliyev.Reporters Without Borders also called for the immediate release of the two Georgian journalists and the return of their equipment, as well as an investigation into the circumstances in which Politkovskaya was apparently administered a toxic substance.The local authorities claimed that Lezhava and Tetvadze did not have the required visas and accreditation, but this was challenged by Rustavi 2 news editor Eka Khoperia, who said they are residents of Kazbegi, a town on the border between Georgia and the Russian republic of North Ossetia, and as such can enter Russia without a visa under an agreement between the two countries.The local police confiscated their camera, video cassettes, documents and mobile phones. Georgia’s President Mikhail Saakashvili has demanded their immediate release.Politkovskaya, who works for the Russian daily Novaya Gazeta, made two unsuccessful attempts on 1 September to board a flight at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport with the aim of going to Beslan and trying to negotiate with the terrorists, as she already did during the hostage-taking in a Moscow theatre in 2002. On her third attempt, she was finally allowed to board a plane but she fell ill during the flight about ten minutes after drinking some tea. She was rushed to a hospital in the southern city of Rostov where doctors diagnosed an acute intestinal infection. Two days later, she was transported to Moscow in a stable condition.Novaya Gazeta editor Dmitri Muratov said he preferred to await the results of tests before making a statement about the poisoning of Politkovskaya. But he added: “It is nonetheless clear that all the journalists with any authority in Chechnya were kept away from the events unfolding in Beslan.”Babitski, who works for the Russian-language service of Radio Free Europe, was detained at Vnukovo airport when he tried to leave for Beslan on 2 September. Airport police, who said sniffer dogs detected traces of explosives in his bags, released him after searching his belongings. But two men in plain clothes accosted him as he left the police station and, in an ensuing altercation, he was re-arrested. He was detained until the evening and was convicted of “hooliganism” the next day. An initial sentence of five days in prison was reduced to a fine on appeal.Russian version May 28, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF_en RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” to go further News News June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Belarus BelarusEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts News “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Newslast_img read more
