New to investing? I’d buy this FTSE 100 share to kickstart my portfolio Noah Riley | Thursday, 7th January, 2021 | More on: BT-A See all posts by Noah Riley Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Taking the dive into investing can be one of the hardest and biggest decisions that you make in life. It is also quite daunting in many ways, as there are numerous different asset classes that can be utilised when investing. However, I still believe that the FTSE 100 contains many great value shares. This new year can offer a fresh start, particularly for those who haven’t yet started investing. Stock-picking can potentially give investors a source of passive income (through dividends) and also deliver strong capital gains. The stock I outline in this article offers both in my opinion.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…Getting started With the markets having bounced back hard from the March 2020 lows, it may appear to be the wrong time to start investing into equities. Even though the FTSE 250 is nearing pre-Covid levels and the US market has broken all-time highs, the FTSE 100 still appears very undervalued. I believe there is plenty of opportunity out there, even though there are also more risks as well. Whilst it is always important for any investor to get diversification in their portfolio, I believe it is also important to get exposure to stock picking and individual equities too. Diversification can be achieved through buying Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), which are baskets of shares that follow specific market indices. These are generally known to be a lower-risk option than investing in individual equities. However, I also believe many equities in the FTSE 100 offer low risk at current levels, one of these being BT Group (LSE:BT-A).BT GroupBT Group’s share price has been declining for many years. At its highest point back in 2000, BT shares surpassed £10 during the dot-com bubble; now they stand at just £1.35. A lot of the FTSE 100 company’s poor performance can be attributed to the prolonged mismanagement of operations. BT has, for a long time, had a near monopoly on broadband across Britain, but did not use this to its advantage and other entrants have grown market share. Instead of investing heavily into new fast fibre and onboarding customers for the long run, BT turned towards multi-billion pound TV sports deals and international partnerships, neither of which has arguably paid off to date. The future opportunity Now, with sentiment low, there is a turnaround opportunity in BT shares. The company still remains a cash cow delivering an operating profit of £3.5 billion for 2020, leaving BT with a lucrative P/E of just 5x. Whilst BT’s debt pile is sizable at £27 billion, the company has 4x coverage on the interest bill through its operating profit, so this debt is more than manageable.With the world becoming increasingly integrated and demand for broadband services booming, I believe BT is one of the most promising FTSE 100 shares. BT’s recent move to plough £12 billion into rolling out fibre in the UK should put the company in good stead to reduce debt and improve cash flows. Whilst no dividend was paid at 2020 year end due to Covid-19 headwinds, I am confident dividends will return as cash generation improves going forward. As a result, BT is an investment I would consider if I was new to investing.

An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET [Lambeth Palace] It was with a heavy heart but complete understanding that we learned this morning of Pope Benedict’s declaration of his decision to lay down the burden of ministry as Bishop of Rome, an office which he has held with great dignity, insight and courage. As I prepare to take up office I speak not only for myself, and my predecessors as Archbishop, but for Anglicans around the world, in giving thanks to God for a priestly life utterly dedicated, in word and deed, in prayer and in costly service, to following Christ. He has laid before us something of the meaning of the Petrine ministry of building up the people of God to full maturity.In his visit to the United Kingdom, Pope Benedict showed us all something of what the vocation of the See of Rome can mean in practice – a witness to the universal scope of the gospel and a messenger of hope at a time when Christian faith is being called into question. In his teaching and writing he has brought a remarkable and creative theological mind to bear on the issues of the day. We who belong to other Christian families gladly acknowledge the importance of this witness and join with our Roman Catholic brothers and sisters in thanking God for the inspiration and challenge of Pope Benedict’s ministry.We pray that God will bless him profoundly in retirement with health and peace of mind and heart, and we entrust to the Holy Spirit those who have a responsibility to elect his successor.+ Justin Cantuar Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Submit a Job Listing Robert G.

For exclusions of bat colonies, contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation at 352-732-1225.Photo by Jody ConferBats play an important role in the ecosystem, especially in controlling insects and aiding agriculture, and they pose virtually no danger to people who do not handle them, however a small percentage can carry rabies. If you find a bat during daylight hours, it is most likely unhealthy and should be avoided.If you or a family member has been bitten or scratched by a bat, you should seek medical attention and contact Orange County Animal Services at (407) 254-9150.If you find a dead batRemember, bats belong in nature, not in your hands. If you find a dead bat on your property and you’re certain no human or pet contact has occurred, please take extra precaution when disposing of the bat.Wear heavy gloves, or preferably scoop up the dead bat with a shovel while wearingdisposable gloves.Bury the bat at a depth of at least 1 ft. under the surface or dispose of it in the garbage receptacle.If you place it in the garbage, please consider the safety of others and ensure that noaccidental contact will be made with the dead bat, by double bagging it in plastic garbage bags.Wash your hands thoroughly and dispose of the gloves.RabiesRabies is a disease of the nervous system that can cause paralysis and is fatal to warm blooded animals and humans. The virus is spread through saliva, and humans may become infected through a bite wound, scratch or exposure of a fresh cut to saliva of a rabid animal. The only treatment for human exposure to rabies is rabies specific immune globulin and rabies immunization. Appropriate treatment which is started soon after the exposure will protect an exposed person from the disease.For more information on rabies, visit the DOH website at doh.state.fl.us/Environment/medicine/rabies/rabies-index.html or the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/rabies.The Florida Department of Health, nationally accredited by the Public Health Accreditation Board, works to protect, promote, and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county, and community efforts.

Whose job is it to stop further £1.5m payouts?On 15 Jan 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. The award of £1.5m in compensation to Julie Bower last week for unfairdismissal and sex discrimination against Schroder Securities has caused asensation in the media and is a talking point in offices up and down thecountry.Unfortunately, what has caused the interest is not sex discrimination, butthe huge figure involved. Many who do not work in the City find it hard to understand how anyone couldbe insulted by a £25,000 bonus, and eyebrows have been raised at the much largeramounts paid to Bower’s male colleagues. Coming a week after the Equal Opportunities Review’s report showing thatemployers paid out a record £3.5bn in compensation for discrimination in 2000,the Bower case is another reminder that non-compliance with equalitylegislation is very expensive indeed. It will certainly help HR professionals persuade their boards to takediscrimination at work seriously. However, the furore surrounding big payoutsfor sex discrimination can have a negative effect on the credibility of sexdiscrimination law. Such cases focus attention on the supposed gains ofprofessional women and away from the legions of poor and modestly paid womenwho suffer pay discrimination in the workplace. For the public and for manybusiness people, big awards also reinforce the perception that equality law canlead to a compensation culture. The award for Bower is, of course, fair, provided it reflects her loss ofearnings as a result of discrimination. Sensible employers will want to makesure that the talent of potential female high-fliers is not thwarted bydiscriminatory practices. And for her part, Bower made a courageous decision totake the company to tribunal. Whether or not the huge sums paid to workers inthe square mile are justifiable is a separate issue. The HR profession must bear the brunt of bringing about workplace equalityand taking measures to close the gender pay gap. Many HR departments havealready shown how this can be done and those in sectors where sexualdiscrimination is still common should study them closely. The exemplar HR teams have developed grievance procedures to preventdisputes leading to tribunals. They have overhauled their policies andprocedures. And they have built competency in carrying out annual pay reviewsto remove the kind of disparity that led to the £1.5m payout to Julie Bower. When a case ends in a massive compensation payout to an individual womanthere are no winners, unless it leads to good practice among employers infuture.
