I’d buy this 7.5% yield for my Stocks and Shares ISA today

Enter Your Email Address When Britain comes out of lockdown, we’re going to be in a pretty severe recession. I want to buy strong companies for my Stocks and Shares ISA that are well set up for this weak economic environment.I believe I’ve found a great option in RBG Holdings (LSE:RBGP). It owns the leading UK law firm Rosenblatt, which deals with white collar crime, financial fraud cases, and dispute resolution.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…Its £57m market-cap is at the lower end that I’d be happy to buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA. It’s not listed on the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250. Instead it’s listed on AIM, the growth-focused section of London’s flagship stock market.A lot to likeSo why have I got my eye on this share for my Stocks and Shares ISA? Rosenblatt employees own more than 20% of its shares, which makes for a strong internal incentive to build shareholder value. CEO Nicola Foulston says this is a key part of her strategy to motivate her people.I particularly like RBGP’s very strong balance sheet. Crucially, it has no debt so it can spend its operating capital on growing the business and not on servicing loans. It also has a handy cash pile of £2m with £42m of assets. Also, profits are up 27% and the company reported a strong set of figures in April covering the period to the end of December 2019.Then there’s that 7.5% dividend yield. That would compound very nicely in my Stocks and Shares ISA. As good investors, we can build up our ISAs towards the magic £1m number by picking high-yield dividend stocks. It’s certainly a lot easier to gain compound interest with a portfolio paying 7.5% than, say, 2.5%.Investing post-CovidI also think the future is bright for RBGP, while the UK economy faces dark days ahead. I think there’s going to be no shortage of work for this professional services law firm.One high-profile case Rosenblatt worked on recently was for FTSE 250 firm Stobart, the owner of Southend Airport, in a bitter boardroom battle that saw the chief executive of the business sacked, to significant shareholder dismay.And the number of dispute resolution cases like this, in which Rosenblatt specialises, will only grow as distressed business numbers grow.  Stark analysis revealed in May 2020 by trade body the Corporate Finance Network, found that 61% of 16,000 SMEs had applied for the UK government’s Covid Business Interruption Loan Scheme. Only 9% had been accepted. Just a tiny percentage said they would be able to meet their tax liabilities in six months’ time. To that point, I’ve also invested recently in insolvency and turnaround companies like Begbies Traynor, Manolete Partners and FRP Advisory.UndervaluedI think RBGP’s significantly undervalued at the moment. If you had bought shares in 2018, when the company made £3m pre-tax profit on £12.5m revenue, you’d have paid a high price of 18 times earnings. This year, the P/E ratio is significantly reduced: to 9.5 times earnings. In that time Rosenblatt has vastly improved its pre-tax profit, to £7.65m, and grown its revenue to £19.5m.Rising earnings and profits? Check. High yield dividend? Check. Low price tag for the shares? Check. I’d definitely buy this for my Stocks and Shares ISA.

The Shell vs BP share price rated

first_img Over the past 12 months, shares in Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) have outperformed the BP (LSE: BP) share price. Shell has returned nearly 8%, excluding dividends paid to investors, while shares in BP have only added 4%. However, past performance should never be used as a guide to future potential. So, which company would I buy for the next five to 10 years? 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…BP share price outlook I’m pretty optimistic about the outlook for the BP share price. It’s clear to me the world is steadily moving away from oil and gas towards more renewable energy sources. In my opinion, companies need to get with the trend, or they risk being left behind. BP is doing just that. The company plans to invest tens of billions of dollars over the next few years to increase its renewable energy generation substantially. I think this is the right decision. It could futureproof the business and help protect growth for years to come. Of course, there’s a risk that the company may spend much of this money for less return than hoped for. If oil and gas remain primary power sources for the world for longer than expected, management may regret spending so heavily on renewable projects. I feel that’s a considerable risk hanging over the BP share price right now. The challenge for ShellShell’s renewable energy ambitions are nowhere near as large as those of BP. The company aims to double the electricity it sells, delivering the equivalent of more than 50m households with renewable electricity by 2030. Meanwhile, BP wants to increase its output more than 10-fold to 50GW by 2030. Further, BP has laid out plans to be a net-zero business by 2050. Shell had plans to hit the same target but was recently told by a Dutch court that its agenda didn’t go far enough. The company’s strategy was attacked for being “not concrete and is full of conditions.“Still, while Shell’s plans might not be as ambitious as BP’s, the company could benefit if oil and gas remain a crucial component of the global energy mix. The BP share price could underperform Shell’s if that turns out to be the case. The company also owns one of Europe’s most extensive energy trading operations, which gives it a substantial competitive advantage over competitors and unrivalled market access. These qualities could enable the business to navigate the headwinds facing the sector better than its peer. Which company to buy? Considering all of the above, if I had to choose between Shell and BP, I’d pick the latter. BP has been producing renewable energy for several decades, and I think it has more experience in the sector. I’m also encouraged by the company’s ambitious growth plans over the next few years. While I’m aware that a strategy of diving headfirst into renewable energy comes with its own challenges, I think the potential for reward more than outweighs these risks. That’s why I’d buy BP today.  Rupert Hargreaves | Tuesday, 15th June, 2021 | More on: BP RDSB Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The Shell vs BP share price rated Image source: Getty Images Our 5 Top Shares for the New “Green Industrial Revolution” It was released in November 2020, and make no mistake:It’s happening.The UK Government’s 10-point plan for a new “Green Industrial Revolution.”PriceWaterhouse Coopers believes this trend will cost £400billion……That’s just here in Britain over the next 10 years.Worldwide, the Green Industrial Revolution could be worth TRILLIONS.It’s why I’m urging all investors to read this special presentation carefully, and learn how you can uncover the 5 companies that we believe are poised to profit from this gargantuan trend ahead!center_img Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The logo has since been phased out.[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are joining calls for a local high school to change its nicknames, which many consider derogatory toward Native Americans.Northern Michigan Bishop Rayford Ray wrote a letter Jan. 3 to the school board in Marquette calling for an end to the use of “Redmen” and “Redettes” at Marquette Senior High School, and the Rev. Lydia Kelsey Bucklin, Ray’s canon to the ordinary for discipleship and vitality, spoke in favor of changing the nicknames at a tense school board meeting on Jan. 6.“The ‘Redmen’ and ‘Redette’ nicknames are not only hurtful to indigenous members of the community, but to all who believe in human dignity, freedom and justice,” Ray said in his letter. “We are called to recognize an injustice, to educate each other about the nature of this injustice and to follow the lead of local indigenous leaders who recognize how to heal this unnecessary trauma.”Of the 12 federally recognized Native American tribes based in Michigan, five are in the state’s sparsely populated Upper Peninsula. Marquette, overlooking Lake Superior and home to Northern Michigan University, is the Upper Peninsula’s largest city, with a population of about 21,000, though only a few hundred Marquette residents report Native American heritage, according to census data.Last year, the Marquette school board asked a special committee to research the high school’s nicknames. The committee collected evidence that the nicknames were offensive, harmful to Native American students and not universally embraced by the student body, and it recommended changing the nicknames.“A change to a culturally appropriate nickname and mascot common across all seven schools within the Marquette Area Public Schools might serve as a rallying point and a point of pride,” the committee said in its report, presented to the school board on Dec. 16.A photo on the Marquette Senior High School website shows the school’s current logo, a bold red “M.”Dozens of people attended the board’s next meeting on Jan. 6, and they reportedly spoke for more than three hours, some defending the nicknames and others opposing them. Defenders argued that “Redmen” originated not as a racial slur but as a tribute to the crimson red of Harvard University, which was a former superintendent’s alma mater. Even so, the school long embraced the racial connotations of “Redmen” by featuring an Indian chief’s head as its logo, until that image was phased out a few years ago and replaced with a bold red “M.” Opponents say the nicknames need to be retired as well.“For us, it really is just this basic recognition of the need to respect the dignity of every human being,” Bucklin told Episcopal News Service, referencing the baptismal covenant in the Book of Common Prayer.Bucklin’s comments at the Jan. 6 school board meeting in opposition to the nicknames also were rooted in her personal history. The Diocese of Northern Michigan is based in Marquette, and Bucklin attended Marquette Senior High School in the 1990s, when her father, the Rev. James Kelsey, worked as the diocese’s ministry development coordinator. He later served as bishop until his death in 2007.In 1998, during Bucklin’s senior year, she was editor of the student newspaper. She and her fellow students devoted one issue that year to questioning the appropriateness of the “Redmen” mascot and nickname.That year, the school board voted to retire the logo, but the decision didn’t last long. A backlash in the community led to the election of new board members, Bucklin said, who voted to reverse course and keep the “Redmen” nickname and logo.The ongoing debate in Marquette echoes conversations happening across the United States over Indian mascots. While some communities are reluctant to give up such mascots, critics argue they glorify racial stereotypes, objectify indigenous people and amount to a form of cultural identity theft by teams and fan bases that often are largely non-Native.The most widely discussed case is that of the NFL’s Washington Redskins, whose owners have adamantly refused to stop using a racial slur as the team’s name despite protests and pressure from Native American groups and their supporters. Other professional teams have been somewhat responsive to such complaints. The Cleveland Indians baseball team, while keeping its name, chose after the 2018 season to retire as its mascot a Native American caricature known as “Chief Wahoo.”Colleges generally have phased out references to Native Americans in their mascots and nicknames since a 2005 NCAA ban on the practice. The University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, for example, is now known as the Fighting Hawks after deciding to end the use of its Fighting Sioux nickname in 2012.“Rather than honoring Native peoples, these caricatures and stereotypes contribute to a disregard for the personhood of Native peoples,” the National Congress of American Indians, an advocacy group, said in a 2013 report. “Widely consumed images of Native American stereotypes in commercial and educational environments slander, defame, and vilify Native peoples, Native cultures and tribal nations, and continue a legacy of racist and prejudiced attitudes.”Such arguments also apply to American high schools, where mascots have commonly drawn on Native American imagery. A USA Today Network report on Wisconsin school mascots noted in 2018 that dozens of schools had eliminated Indian mascots since the 1980s, but 31 such mascots remained in the state.A Capital News Service report in 2013 counted at least 63 high schools in the country that still call themselves “Redskins,” and one of those schools is Paw Paw High School in lower Michigan. Last year, the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan filed a complaint over the school’s mascot, and the U.S. Department of Education is investigating, according to MLive.The ACLU’s complaint warned that the use of the nickname was creating a “racially hostile educational environment.”In 2017, a state senator from Detroit proposed legislation that would have banned racially insensitive mascots in Michigan, but the bill appears to have stalled after being referred to a Senate committee.A crowd listens to people speak in favor of and against the proposed discontinued use of the Marquette Senior High School nicknames at a Jan. 6 school board meeting. Photo: Christie Bleck/Mining JournalIn Marquette, the school district’s student body is nearly 90 percent white, and only about 3 percent of Marquette Senior High School students reported Native American heritage, according to demographic data collected by the U.S. Department of Education.After the research committee presented its findings at the school board’s Dec. 16 meeting, high school senior Roxy Sprowl was among those who spoke in favor of the committee’s recommendation of a new nickname, according to a Mining Journal story on the meeting.“In my experience as a Native American student at Marquette Senior High School, I have been told that I don’t deserve anything as a Native person when I step out and say that I don’t support the mascot,” Sprowl said. “I am told that I don’t deserve to be here.”Chris Swartz, tribal council president of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, also spoke at that meeting. “It’s time to change the name,” he said.The school board has yet to act on the committee’s recommendations. The issue wasn’t on the agenda of the Jan. 6 meeting, though residents flooded the meeting to comment about it anyway.“I think that input is so incredibly important and we need to see and do what is best for our students, and I think this is a great opportunity as a community to really show what we stand for and to show how you can work on complex issues and resolve those issues,” School Board President Rich Rossway told WLUC-TV after the board’s Jan. 6 meeting. Its next scheduled meeting is Jan. 27.Bucklin told ENS that the debate in Marquette comes at a time when the Diocese of Northern Michigan is stepping up its efforts to confront The Episcopal Church’s historic complicity with systematic oppression of Native American tribes. The diocese and its churches also have worked to build closer relationships with the tribes that are based in the Upper Peninsula.In 2018, the diocese received a United Thank Offering grant of $30,000 for an initiative called “Walking Together: Finding Common Ground Through Racial Reconciliation.” The initiative entails “listening and learning sessions” with tribal members as well as a traveling exhibit focused on Native American history.In listening to tribal members, Bucklin said, Episcopalians have learned firsthand of their opposition to Indian mascots and nicknames. “For this local issue [at Marquette Senior High School] to bubble up in the midst of all of that feels like it’s really appropriate for us to speak out in favor of changing the name.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Trump Exploring Exports Under RFS, Scaling Back Hardship Waivers, E15 Sales

first_img Facebook Twitter The Trump Administration will scale back hardship waivers under the Renewable Fuel Standard, according to Reuters. A source tells Reuters that the move includes counting ethanol exports towards biofuel usage quotas set under the RFS. The move seeks to ease tension between the oil and corn industries which have been at odds for months regarding the RFS, including multiple White House meetings. The corn industry, however, considers the exports action against the law, arguing that the RFS quota is for domestic use, not international. Biofuels groups say the move could spark further trade tensions. But, the action by the White House would also allow for year-round sales of E15, a win for ethanol producers.Regarding the hardship waivers, which Senator Chuck Grassley says is taking away corn demand, the Senator says he will call for Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt’s resignation if he pushes changes that “permanently cut ethanol by billions of gallons.” By Hoosier Ag Today – May 15, 2018 Trump Exploring Exports Under RFS, Scaling Back Hardship Waivers, E15 Sales Facebook Twitter Previous articleProposed Tariff Hearings Underway in WashingtonNext articleFarmers Union Urges USDA to Proactively Address Farm Suicide Crisis Hoosier Ag Today Home Energy Trump Exploring Exports Under RFS, Scaling Back Hardship Waivers, E15 Sales SHARE SHARElast_img read more

During the course of hearing via video conferencing today, the state government informed the bench that sufficient provisions had been made for creating a Fund that may be utilized to support the needy Advocates. “Under Rules 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 44A and 44B of Part VI of “The Bar Council of India Rules”, sufficient provisions had been made for creating a corpus of funds and for their distribution amongst Advocates in times of need,” the court was informed.

Specifically, Rule 44B provides for formulation of a scheme for financial assistance to State Bar Councils during natural calamity, etc. The state’s submissions were supported by the Additional Advocate General who submitted that the Bar Council of India as also the State Bar Councils had sufficient funds to cater to the present circumstances. He submitted that the State Government had transferred the money which had been collected by it through the Stamp for the welfare of the Advocates to the Treasury in the State of U.P. for it to be transferred to the relevant accounts. Taking note of these submissions, the High Court has now asked the BCI and the UP State Bar Council to submit a report detailing the modalities of the scheme as aforementioned. “we direct, the Bar Council of India and the Uttar Pradesh Bar Council to produce before the Court through e-mail, the definite procedure by which they have brought into effect the provisions of Rules 44A and 44B of the Bar Council of India Rules contained in Chapter VI. We also expect that the representatives of the Allahabad High Court Bar Association and the Bar Council of India would appear through videoconferencing on the next date and shall also produce before us the schemes which they might have formulated in the meantime,” the court ordered. Inter alia, the court was informed that the Awadh Bar Association had already implemented a temporary scheme for disbursement of certain amounts to lawyers who required financial assistance. As for the next date of hearing scheduled for April 20, the court has asked the representatives of the Allahabad High Court Bar Association and the Bar Council of India to appear through videoconferencing and produce the schemes which they might have formulated in the meantime.
