Why I think Brexit could provide great share buying opportunities in 2020

first_img See all posts by Alan Oscroft I saw the election result in December, and I watched the stock market start to tick up in the following days. I really thought the period of cheap Brexit-depressed shares was coming to an end.But then PM Boris Johnson launched his bombshell and committed us to a do-or-die trade negotiation timescale. If we don’t get a deal signed by the end of December 2020, we could be plunged into chaos after all.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…In recent days our EU trading partners have been making it clear just how unrealistic the PM’s target might be.Toughening stanceThere have been two developments that I think should shake naive optimists out of any complacency.French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has warned that he sees a tough battle between the EU and the UK in the upcoming trade negotiations. He’s suggested the two sides could be set to “rip each other apart” in the struggle. Perhaps unnecessarily, he went on to add that he thought getting a deal by the end of the year would be tough.In another move, EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier has cast doubt on the UK’s plans. He appears to have scuppered the hopes of the UK’s chief negotiator, David Frost, who has called for a “Canada-Free Trade Agreement-type relationship.” Barnier reckons our “particular proximity” means things will have to be different. Oh, and just as a reminder, it took a full seven years to hammer out the Canada agreement.InvestmentThe FTSE 100 has been showing the same pessimism. Since a post-election peak on 17 January, it’s fallen 3%. That might not seem a lot, but it means the index has gained only 5.5% over the past two years. And it’s a far cry from the bullish recovery I was expecting to see in early 2020.Still, if the government hard line should dump us into recession in 2021, at least I reckon that could provide us with even better share buying opportunities. But you might ask, does it make sense to invest in UK shares at a time when the UK economy might be heading for recession?Well, if you buy shares in UK-focused companies, maybe it is a bit of a risk. As an example, I have some Lloyds Banking Group shares, and Lloyds has refocused itself as a UK retail bank. I expect Lloyds shares to suffer in any economic downturn.GlobalBut, even though all the companies in the FTSE 100 are registered in the UK, very few actually do much of their business here. Look at the biggest of all, Royal Dutch Shell. It’s a big international oil company, it generates cash worldwide, and it pays juicy dividends. Even if the UK economy completely disappeared from the world stage, Royal Dutch Shell’ profits should still be fine.What about the next biggest ones? Unilever, Astrazeneca, HSBC… they’re all multinationals and largely immune to the British economy. But in the face of continuing Brexit uncertainty, I expect them all to remain weak. And in the event of a no-deal departure, I see them suffering along with the whole index.Those are the kinds of stocks I think will offer continued, and even improving, buying opportunities. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Alan Oscroft | Friday, 21st February, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The client was emphatic that tradition, innovation and respect for the landscape be combined in a single project. The structure of the landscape and research into rural building in Flanders stand in reciprocity to the design process and the final built environment. Save this picture!Crucial in this thought process is that the landscape confirms the footprint of the buildings and farmhouses in origin and as tradition. Here respect and tradition create a need for a contemporary continuity, reflected in the search for a new meaning for the farmhouse in its varying scenic mutations. The project is a spatial and architectural quest for methods to offer new perspectives in the relationship between landscape and architecture.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessFundação Iberê Camargo in Porto Alegre, Brazil / Alvaro SizaArticlesAR Emerging Awards 2008Articles Share “COPY” The Barn House / BURO II Save this picture!+ 13 Share The Barn House / BURO IISave this projectSaveThe Barn House / BURO II ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/2702/the-barn-house-buro-ii Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/2702/the-barn-house-buro-ii Clipboard “COPY” Copy•last_img read more

The ration packs are enough to sustain ten soldiers for a 24 hour period, containing nutritionally balanced meals and providing 4,000 calories per individual – enough to sustain an active person over a 24-hour period. They include items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, such as porridge, sausages, baked beans, pasta and rice.The military will provide the packs to FareShare, which distributes food to nearly 10,000 UK charities.Minister for Defence People and Veterans Tobias Ellwood said:“Ration packs help provide nutritionally balanced meals to our armed forces on operations around the world.  But charity begins at home, and I’m pleased our partnership with FareShare will make sure no food goes to waste. FareShare does a fantastic job redistributing food across the country and I’m proud the military can support communities in this way.”Mr Ellwood also said that the donation of ration packs would not be a one off, but something the MOD would do every year going forward, and that the Department was looking at how to make them as environmentally friendly as possible.  159 total views,  1 views today  160 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Melanie May | 18 January 2019 | News Tagged with: Donated goodslast_img read more

It was also argued that Khan had been organising “such programmes” with Munawar for quite some time.Police also said they have a video clip showing Khan recording Faruqui’s programme and this video is on his phone. They also feared a law-and-order situation if he is released on Bail.Noting all the arguments, lastly, the Court refused to grant him Bail.It may be noted that Khan has been charged for offences under Sections 295-A, 298, 269, 188 r/w 34 of the IPC.Faruqui, a resident of Gujarat, was arrested on 02nd January along with four others (including Sadaqat Khan) for allegedly making indecent remarks against Hindu deities and against Union Home Minister Amit Shah during a show held at a cafe in 56 Dukan area of Indore on January 1.The complaint in this matter was filed by one Eklavya Singh Gaur, who happens to be the son of local BJP legislator Malini Laxman Singh Gaur.Further, the Madhya Pradesh High Court (Indore Bench) last month, while reserving orders on the bail application of comedian Munawar Faruqui had said,”But why you take undue advantage of other’s religious sentiments and emotions. What is wrong with your mindset? How can you do this for the purpose of your business?”Subsequently, on 28th January, the Madhya Pradesh High Court, Indore Bench dismissed the bail applications filed by comedian Munawar Faruqui and co- accused Nalin Yadav, who were arrested on January 2 for allegedly hurting religious sentiments during their comic show.A single bench Justice Rohit Arya said that “no case is made out for grant of bail”.The Court said that it was not commenting on the merits of the case as investigation was under progress. However, the materials collected so far suggested prima facie commission of the offence.The judge noted in the order:”The evidence/material collected so far, suggest that in an organized public show under the garb of standup comedy at a public place on commercial lines, prima facie; scurrilous, disparaging utterances, outraging religious feelings of a class of citizens of India with deliberate intendment, were made by the applicants.”Further, on 05th February, the Supreme Court granted ad-interim bail to comedian Munawar Faruqui in a case registered by Madhya Pradesh police for alleged hurting of religious sentiments.”The learned counsel has pointed out to us that quite apart from the fact that the allegations made in the FIR are vague that the procedure contained in Section 41 Cr.P.C. as adumbrated by our Judgment in “Arnesh Kumar Vs. State of Bihar & Anr.”, reported in (2014) 8 SCC 273, has not been followed before arresting the petitioner. This being the case, we issue notice in both the petitions, and stay the Judgment of the High Court. The petitioner is released on ad-interim bail on conditions to the satisfaction of the trial court”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
