Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’ve skimmed through the full-year results report released on 27 February by high-quality FTSE 100 stock British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) but can find no mention of coronavirus.My assumption is that the pandemic may have a negligible direct effect on trading for the company. Overall, products for smokers tend to experience rock-solid demand in the sector, and people rarely forego their smokes or equivalents, even in the leanest of economic times.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…Impressive trading and financial recordThat’s why BATS’ record of growth in revenue, earnings cash flow and shareholder dividends is generally steady.However, there are risks, and the report’s ‘Risks and Uncertainties’ section fleshes them out. Things such as competition from illicit trade; disruption because of legislation; the firm’s potential inability to deliver on its New Categories strategy; market-size reduction; litigation; geopolitical tensions; disputed taxes, interest and penalties; changes in the tax regime; foreign exchange rate exposure and other things.It’s a long list, and underline’s that there’s no such thing as a risk-free share. Even great big, cash-generating, defensive FTSE 100 shares like this one can plunge a long way when things go wrong. Although just recently, you hardly need me to remind you of that!A positive outlookMeanwhile, the outlook statement for 2020 reveals the company anticipates global industry cigarette and tobacco heating products (THP) volumes will fall by around 4%. Within that figure, the directors assume that US industry volume will fall by about 5%. Indeed, the backdrop has been one of declining volumes in the sector for years, yet BATS has powered ahead, using its cash flow to fuel returns for shareholders.The firm expects currency-adjusted revenue to grow between 3% and 5% during 2020. And that’s the type of outcome we’ve become used to from BATS. On top of that, the directors expect “continued operating margin improvement.” And there will be an ongoing drive to grow the New Categories division, which should produce £5bn in revenue by 2023 or 2024 if the company meets its targets.The pandemic scare affecting the stockOverall, the directors said in the report the business is “performing well” and we can expect another year of “high single figure constant currency adjusted EPS growth,” and strong operating cash flow conversion “in excess of” 90%. But there’ll likely be a 4% headwind on full-year adjusted earnings per share growth because of foreign exchange movements. Maybe. We’ll see. Most markets have been all over the place lately!Meanwhile, at the recent share price near 2,540p (and falling as I write), the stock is almost 30% down from its position in early February. At this level, the forward-looking dividend yield for 2021 is just above 9%.BATS is near the top of my watch list. But I never buy any share when it is obviously still falling, no matter how attractive the value indicators, or how enthusiastic I am about the firm’s prospects. One possibility of which I’m mindful is that the tobacco sector could be dumped by investors altogether, rather like the oil sector appears to have been. For me, it’s ‘wait and see’ for the time being. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Pierre Whalon, obispo a cargo de la Convocación, dijo que Vercammen había plantado una semilla “para que nosotros oráramos acerca de quiénes somos juntos… y determináramos que ya no nos consideramos iglesias separadas… Debemos pensar fuera de nosotros mismos”.Whalon dijo a ENS que existe un profundo deseo de formar “una comunión de iglesias que pueda tener un testimonio común en la Europa continental” y que tal comunión traería a la Iglesia Veterocatólica y a la Iglesia Episcopal “tan cerca como fuera posible de la plena unidad visible sin hacer dejación de la autonomía local de las jurisdicciones individuales”. La profundización de las relaciones entre los veterocatólicos y los episcopales, afirmó él, podría alentar a otras iglesias anglicanas y asociados en plena comunión en Europa a trabajar de manera más deliberada hacia la unidad.La Diócesis en Europa de la Iglesia de Inglaterra incluye parroquias a través de todo el continente. La Iglesia Reformada Episcopal de España y la Iglesia Lusitana de Portugal son las dos otras jurisdicciones anglicanas en Europa.“En el muy largo plazo podría ser el objetivo tener sólo una estructura eclesiástica que sería tanto veterocatólica como episcopal”, dijo Vercammen. “Por ahora tenemos que organizar las medidas que hemos de tomar a fin de lograr este objetivo a largo plazo”.“Supongo que los veterocatólicos podrían ayudarnos a convertirnos en nuevos episcopales”, dijo la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, en sus palabras a la convención, que sesionó en San Pablo Intramuros [St. Paul’s Within-the-Walls], una iglesia episcopal en el centro de Roma. Ella describió la propuesta de Vercammen como “una forma radical de comunidad, un nuevo modo de ser la Iglesia, la Iglesia que somos llamados a ser”.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, luego de oír las noticias acerca del llamado de Vercammen y la respuesta de la Convocación, dijo a ENS que estaba “profundamente agradecida por la creciente conciencia de las posibilidades de la plena comunión en Europa, y el creciente compromiso que la hace una mayor realidad”.Y añadió: “¡Imagínense el testimonio misional y la posibilidad de una inconsútil comunidad cristiana anglicana-episcopal-veterocatólica-luterana! La robusta y profunda relación entre veterocatólicos y episcopales en Europa es la precursora, que sencillamente podría conducir a otras partes del Cuerpo de Cristo a una mayor asociación”.Jefferts Schori fue invitada por la Iglesia Veterocatólica en 2011 cuando visitó Utrecht y pronunció la Conferencia de Quasimodo, un evento anual que explora asuntos religiosos en la sociedad contemporánea.Vercammen, en sus palabras a la convención de la Convocación, hizo citas de esa conferencia, durante la cual Jefferts Schori dijo que el ecumenismo “es básicamente trabajo doméstico: limpiar la casa, ponerla en orden, para que pueda ser un hogar… La labor ecuménica comienza en la visión bautismal de un cuerpo de Cristo restaurado, pero no puede tenerse en ninguna versión limitada de lo que el cuerpo de Dios incluye. Estamos aquí para ayudar al todo, y ése es el futuro al que quiero apuntar en ser católico más allá de las fronteras”.Luego de ese discurso, Vercammen dijo a ENS que se necesitaba más creatividad para tratar con la superposición de jurisdicciones.“Necesitamos más iniciativas concretas”, tales como búsquedas comunes de un liderazgo eclesiástico que sirva más allá de las jurisdicciones, dijo “y luego podemos realmente construir un núcleo de Iglesia donde los cristianos de todos los orígenes puedan reunirse. Tenemos una oportunidad única y sería una lástima si no la aprovecháramos”.La Iglesia Episcopal entró en plena comunión con las Iglesias Veterocatólicas de la Unión de Utrecht en 1934 sobre las bases del Acuerdo de Bonn suscrito tres años antes. La Iglesia Veterocatólica cuenta con unos 200.000 miembros  repartidos entre varias iglesias nacionales de Europa, localizadas en los Países Bajos, Alemania, Suiza, Austria, la República Checa, Polonia, Francia e Italia Se separaron de la Iglesia Católica Romana porque no pudieron aceptar la definición de la infalibilidad papal presentada por el primer Concilio Vaticano en 1870.La Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa sirve a una demografía de cristianos culturalmente diversa en 20 parroquias y misiones a través de Austria, Bélgica, Francia, Alemania, Italia y Suiza.Además de los veterocatólicos, la Iglesia Episcopal está en plena comunión con la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América, la Iglesia Católica Siro-Malabar de la India, la Iglesia Morava de América del Norte y la Iglesia Filipina Independiente.Las iglesias en plena comunión reconocen formalmente que comparten doctrinas esenciales, incluidos el bautismo y la eucaristía; convienen en la mutua aceptación de los servicios de sus respectivos cleros y se comprometen a trabajar juntas en la evangelización y la misión. Las iglesias se convierten en interdependientes al tiempo que siguen siendo autónomas.– Matthew Davies redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Bath Women’s Fund invites applications for its first grant programme

first_img At the end of its first year Bath Women’s Fund has launched its first grant programme. Local charitable organisations are invited to apply for a £10,000 grant to support work that improves the lives of disadvantaged women and girls living in Bath and North East Somerset.The Fund’s inaugural meeting was in 2018 and it was set up as a giving circle. The funding is generated by the collective donations of the pioneering group of women who joined the giving circle in its first year. Each member donates £25 per month (or £20 plus Gift Aid), or more if they wish.Giving circleCo-founder and fundraiser Isobel Michael was inspired to set up the fund after seeing Melbourne Women’s Fund in action when she was working in Australia. Isobel is a Bathonian and shared her vision with Emma Beeston, who works as an advisor to philanthropists and Foundations. Both agreed that there was the need and opportunity in Bath to set up a giving circle so co-founded the group.What is a giving circle?Giving circles are a collective response to local needs to enable local women (and men) to pool their donations in order to make a bigger difference in local communities.

All members who join the Fund by the end of April 2020 will be able to vote on awarding the first grant.Isobel Michael told UK Fundraising: “We’ve found that potluck dinners are a great approach to bring everyone together and learn about local charities and areas of work – the theme of sharing food and drinks with each other fits well with the concept of the fund and members pooling our collective giving to award a large grant together.”  292 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Bath Women’s Fund invites applications for its first grant programme About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Others who spoke then about the power of women coming together to give and support other in their community included Professor Carole Mundell, Amy Williams MBE, Sharron Davies MBE and Councillor Karen Walker.On the announcement of the first funding round, Ms Hobhouse said: “Bath Women’s fund is a unique way to give back to our community. As a founding member I care deeply about the work that fund does, which is so enriching both to the members of the fund, and the organisations they choose to work with. Bath is a special place and so it is no surprise that we are leading the way in innovative approaches to giving back. This is such a great opportunity and I urge all eligible organisations to apply.”Volunteer-run Bath Women’s Fund is led by volunteers and hosted by St John’s Foundation so “every pound donated by members will be awarded through the grant programmes”. Tagged with: Funding giving circles South West Advertisement  291 total views,  1 views today How to applyThe first grant-making theme is ‘Services for Women and Girls’.

Warnings will “be issued for one week, with citations to resume June 9,” according to the report prepared by Jon Hamblen, City Parking Manager.The same June 2 and 9 dates also apply to residential neighborhood time limit enforcement.People who use overnight permits have more time to prepare to pay: the warning period would begin June 15, with citations to resume July 1.The same June 15 and July 1 dates apply to street sweeping enforcement.“We wanted to have more time to resume overnight parking enforcement to give Parking Office staff time to ensure that all permit applications were reviewed and fulfilled, and to give us more time to alert the residents,” said Hamblen.Hamblen recommended against extending free parking periods at meters and in city-owned garages.“While free parking may seem appealing on the surface, it inevitably leads to both customers and employees of the area taking parking spaces on a long-term basis which reduces turnover and the overall number of guests that are able to conveniently park and patronize local businesses,” according to the report.The Department of Transportation estimates it lost out on approximately $6,000 in parking revenue during the pandemic.Vehicle booting and impounds could resume August 1, according to the report.

The Division Bench of Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal observed that the Supreme Court as well as various governments have already brought out several schemes to alleviate hardship to the citizens in the wake of Covid-19 and the persons for whom relief is sought in the petition can also avail the same. The order has come in a PIL seeking a direction to the Centre as well the Delhi Government to take effective measures to provide financial aid including food, shelter and medicines etc., to sex workers, lesbians, bisexuals, gay and transgender people in Delhi, for their survival during the Covid-19 pandemic. While demanding the constitution of a Committee for their rehabilitation of these persons, the Petitioner had also sought steps for exemption of rent of such persons who are living as tenants in Delhi. The court during the hearing observed that the Petitioner could not present a list of aggrieved persons who have been identified, or who would come forward and identify themselves to seek the claimed relief. The Petitioner, while claiming waiver of rent, had also not made the concerned landlords a party to this petition. While reprimanding the Petitioner for moving such a PIL without any groundwork, the court highlighted that: ‘Though the rules framed by this court with respect to PILs require the Petitioner to not only disclose earlier PILs filed but also outcome thereof but the petitioner, paying mere lip service to the said requirement, has pleaded that the earlier PILs filed by him have been “disposed off”. He is even now not telling whether the earlier petitions have been dismissed.’ While dismissing the petition, the court, even after noting that such behaviour warrants imposition of costs, did not choose to impose any such costs on the Petitioner, owing to his young age.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
