These 12 shares are the FTSE 100’s dogs since 2016. How many do you own?

first_img Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Cliffdarcy has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Associated British Foods, British Land Co, Imperial Brands, Landsec, and Lloyds Banking Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Cliff D’Arcy | Monday, 22nd February, 2021 These past five years haven’t been very profitable for the FTSE 100. Since February 2016, the Footsie has gained under 500 points to trade at 6,582 today. That’s a five-year return of 8%, similar to the interest paid by top savings accounts. However, adding in yearly dividends of roughly 4% more than triples the FTSE 100’s return since 2016.The FTSE 100 is a global disappointmentIn comparison, the US S&P 500 index has doubled over the past half-decade, rising 1o1% to close at 3,907 points last Friday. Today, the S&P 500 hovers just 1.1% below its all-time intraday high of 3,950 points, set last Tuesday. Alas, the FTSE 100 hit its record intraday high of 7,903 points on 22 May 2018. Since then, it has lost over 1,320 points, diving by a sixth (16.7%). Ouch.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 short, the S&P 500 has been a star and the FTSE 100 a dog, at least since 2016. That’s good news for my family, because we sold our UK investments in 2016, after Britain voted to leave the European Union. We invested the proceeds in US and global funds and stocks, all of which have easily beaten the Footsie since then. But now I see the US stock market as highly overvalued and possibly blowing a giant bubble. Conversely, the FTSE 100 is among the cheapest it’s been in historic terms. Thus, I’m planning to invest a large chunk of capital into dirt-cheap UK stocks.The FTSE 100’s biggest dogsThese are the 12 worst-performing FTSE 100 shares over the past five years. Each is a ‘fallen angel’ — a household name that has fallen on hard times. Many of these 12 company shares have been smashed by the economic downturn due to Covid-19. Here they are, in order of best to worst performer (by percentage share-price fall):Associated British Foods -26.6%NatWest Group -28.5%British Land -32.1%British American Tobacco -33.5%Lloyds Banking Group -38.8%Vodafone Group -39.2%Land Securities Group -40.4%WPP -42.7%International Consolidated Airlines Group -55.3%Rolls Royce Holdings -56.5%Imperial Brands Group -62.6%BT Group -71.7%Could these Footsie dogs become stars again?Somewhat predictably, there is a fair degree of grouping among these 12 dogs of the FTSE 100. There are two banks (NatWest and Lloyds) and two property firms (British Land and Land securities). There are two tobacco companies (BAT and Imperial Brands) and two telecoms providers (BT and Vodafone). Also, there are two companies with heavy exposure to air travel (British Airways owner ICAG and jet-engine market Rolls-Royce). ABF owns retailer Primark and sells sugar and foodstuffs worldwide. WPP is the world’s #1 advertising and marketing agency. But, in my view, each of these 12 dogs could possibly make a comeback to rise again.As a contrarian investor, I’m happy to go against the herd. Likewise, as a hunter of value shares, I love bottom-fishing for cheap FTSE 100 stocks. Hence, if you forced me to create a mini-portfolio of these’ dirty dozen’ dogs, I wouldn’t object. I might be wrong, but I see potential for company earnings to rebound strongly in a post-Covid-19 economy. However, free to choose my own stocks, I’d buy NWG, Lloyds, and BT for potential capital gains. Also, I’d buy BAT, Vodafone, and Imperial for their juicy dividend yields.Finally, if you’re a long-standing owner of any of the FTSE 100 dogs, then fingers crossed for a future recovery. Always remember that share prices don’t move in straight lines — and that today’s dogs can sometimes become tomorrow’s stars!

Scotland and England stalemate at Murrayfield

first_imgSunday Mar 14, 2010 Scotland and England stalemate at Murrayfield Scotland and England played to a scrappy 15-15 stalemate at Murrayfield on Saturday. The draw gave Scotland their first point this season, but effectively killed off Englands ambitions of winning the Six Nations Championship.All the points came from the boot as Dan Parks kicked four penalties and a drop goal for Scotland, while Jonny Wilkinson kicked three penalties for England before going off hurt. Replacement Toby Flood kicked the other two.Flood had a chance to win the match with time up, but had his kick charged down.“Overall this game was a tale of missed chances but the draw doesn’t bring our progress to a halt,” said England coach Martin Johnson. “We did some very good things today but we also did some very silly things.“We had chances to win the game and we didn’t need to give away silly penalties in the second half when they didn’t look like scoring,” Johnson added.“I said to the guys at half-time, just back ourselves to retain ball and win the game.”Scotland coach Andy Robinson said he was pleased with his sides improvement following their loss to Italy two weeks ago.“The thing for us, and what I said to the team, is that we can stand toe-to-toe with anybody and play against anybody,” Robinson said.“I thought the set-piece work went well today, I thought some of the invention and things we tried to do were good.“Nobody said it was going to be easy, we’ve got to keep working hard,” he said. “We have been working hard and I’m really pleased with the attitude.”Scotland play Ireland in Dublin next, while England travel to Paris to take on France.

A great emphasis on the landscape, the terrain’s difficult topography and an abstraction from its immediate context, seeking forms and architectural content that would deny the context, even forget it.Planes were necessary to organize the living areas, both inside and out.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThey were built; retaining walls, which create enclosure and form the house.Walls parallel to the slope and perpendicular to it, helping each other and in between those walls, spaces were created, spaces for life, spaces for light which enables life.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe programme, which was very hierarchichal, suggested different contents, different kinds of experience. On the ground floor is the social area, subdivided to be enjoyed by the family, relations, friends and visitors.

Interview with David Alder of Click Collection

first_img In agreement with PayPal Giving Fund, the Click Collection store, already an eBay ‘Power Seller’ and ‘Top-Rated Seller’ will operate exclusively under the eBay for Charity banner, saving eBay charges. Who is the team behind Click Collection?Our original logistics partner was one of the UK’s largest charities in this market, but they prefer to remain anonymous. They were very interested in our concept, and felt they could learn from the pilot as well as share ideas with us. We are now partnering with a major UK textile trade specialist that works with many Local Authorities and charity shops to collect waste. They have already made a significant contribution to improving our process. You’ve started in the UK. Do you plan to expand the business further afield?When our new Click Collection eBay for Charity fashion store opens around October, we will be selling all items to anywhere in the EU. That’s a step in the right direction. As far as collections go, I am keeping an open mind. There appears to be a need for our service in the Republic of Ireland, for example, but we will not bite off more than we can chew.Frankly we need to expand step by step, growing our logistics and administration capacity with demand. After all, we want to provide a top-quality service for our charity partners.That may mean limiting the number of charities we work with initially, adding more as our capacity grows.Naturally we expect that Click Collection to be of most interest to charities without retail operations. But I also hope retail directors will be asking themselves if our collaborative, stand-alone solution may not be better for the charity than more ‘bricks and mortar’.For national charities with only a few shops Click Collection can fill the geographic gaps, of course, giving immediate national coverage. It doesn’t have to be ‘either/or’. And certainly I expect a few calls from charities currently earning £100/tonne or so from clothes collections asking if they really could make £500/tonne with Click Collection. We gather personal data at the initial bag-ordering stage, and add Gift Aid opt-in.

Lesson learned: easier for supporters to donate clothes!  25 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis After an initial pilot, multicharity online donated clothes service Click Collection is embarking on expanding its service to more charities and serving shoppers across the EU. Managing Director David Alder spoke to UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake. Why did you start Click Collection? When?I saw that many charity clothes collections give charities a poor deal, and realised that an innovative approach could make them far more money. Typically a charity might get £100/tonne from collecting clothes from supporters. Our trial made £500/tonne for the participating charities.The business concept was born about two years ago, but it took until the middle of 2012 to launch the Click Collection beta site for our trial. It was worth the wait, because it‘s a ‘gamechanger’. Advertisement Our tracking allows all items to be sold by Click Collection on behalf of individual donors. This allows the charity to claim Gift Aid on both wholesale and retail sales.center_img We’ve got an improved deal on wholesale textiles: now every full bag gives a ‘profit’, even if it contains nothing suitable for resale. Everything is recycled and sold to generate charity income. No creaming-off. Everything is transparent. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 21 May 2013 | News Click Collection has achieved a great reputation already. We will further improve our customer service to keep Click Collection at the top of the charity clothes market. We are introducing new stronger, larger bags for even greater logistics efficiency. The Click Collection Store will sell throughout the EU. What inspired you to create it? Have you seen this model work elsewhere?I am passionate about increasing cooperation between charities to boost efficiency. Having had wide commercial experience I see too much duplication of effort and cost in the charity sector. The Click Collection concept came from chatting with ex-colleagues who worked with me on a charity recycling scheme for mobiles and cartridges.The process was developed for clothes using similar advanced technology. The key innovation is the tracking of every individual item of clothing to the named donor. This changes everything. It means everything suitable for resale can be sold separately but tracked back to the donor, and that Gift Aid can be added to the value of the entire donation, retail and wholesale.Many charities spend a fortune on activities like street fundraising to gather donor data. 100% of Click Collection users input their data. It’s just part of the process. That’s added value compared with black bags dropped at a charity shop! Whichever way you look at it, Click Collection has the potential to change charity retailing and clothes collections radically, with a huge boost to charity income and efficiency. What is the current state of donated clothing for charities? Is the traditional model under threat?Maybe I’m the wrong person to answer that! What do we all know? Many charity shops complain of a lack of good clothes to sell. We also know that literally millions of pounds a year is lost through theft of charity bags. And we know that Local Authorities are increasingly looking to make an income from textiles. So, yes, the traditional market is under great pressure, if not exactly threat.I believe High Street charity shops will always have a place in the market if they are run efficiently. One day you might see Click Collection ‘multicharity’ High Street shops! Why not, if it is more efficient to collaborate? The ‘brand awareness’ argument only stretches so far.There is also a lot of current public concern about the ‘High Street’. Whether from Mary, Queen of Shops or Local Authorities, the goalposts are being moved. But it’s the massive share of the fashion market now traded online that is the biggest driver for change. Click Collection is at the forefront of this change in the charity sector, selling the best of the donated items in our specialist multicharity online fashion store. And we can make a bigger ‘profit’ for charities than the average High Street shop.As for security, Click Collection does things differently. Our system is far safer than kerb-side collections because each bar-coded bag is handed to a responsible contracted courier who is accountable for delivery to our sorting operation.How can charities take part?Any charity can join Click Collection by signing an agreement with us. The income generated naturally depends on the number of supporters, their generosity, and how well the scheme is communicated. As Click Collection is a collaborative scheme – so that charities get the benefit of economies of scale as we expand – we naturally want charities with a substantial supporter base to get on board and help spread the word as soon as possible. Every participating charity is expected to help communicate the scheme to the wider public. You reported your pilot project was successful. What is new about the scheme as you embark on its second stage? What lessons are you incorporating?We learned a huge amount from the pilot, and we are very grateful to the charities that were far-sighted enough to go along with us. When we launch the improved scheme in October the main improvements over the original scheme are (some already mentioned above):last_img read more

UN panel – surveillance of communications and the threat to journalists

first_img Reporters Without Borders will attend a panel discussion about the surveillance of communications that will be held tomorrow in Geneva as part of the United Nations. Human Rights Council’s 27th session. It will be followed by the presentation of a report by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on “The right to privacy in the digital age.” Organisation Read the oral statement RSF_en September 11, 2014 – Updated on January 25, 2016 UN panel – surveillance of communications and the threat to journalists center_img News Reporters Without Borders, which has prepared an oral statement for the Human Rights Council on the safety of journalists and surveillance (see the statement), welcomes these initiatives. The two sessions will provide an opportunity to examine the dangers that digital surveillance poses to freedom of information and the right to privacy, and to stress the need for its strict regulation. In his report, which will be submitted to a vote, the High Commissioner notes that governmental mass surveillance is “emerging as a dangerous habit rather than an exceptional measure.” He urges governments to take “immediate measures” to “review their own national laws, policies and practices to ensure full conformity with international human rights law.” His appeal is urgent because surveillance of news providers is endangering freedom of expression and the safety of journalists. It allows the authorities to spy on their sources and their activities and to monitor the content of their communications. Reporters Without Borders asks the Human Rights Council to include the issue of cyber-security in resolutions on the protection of journalists. RWB also urges governments to respect the “13 International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance” that were drafted by an NGO collective. Government surveillance activities must be regulated and supervised by independent judicial authorities and must comply with the principles of legality, need and proportionality. Frank La Rue, the UN special rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression, and the High Commissioner for Human Rights included recommendations to this effect in reports issued in June 2013 and June 2014. These reports criticize the secrecy surrounding surveillance operations and call for more governmental transparency. Reporters Without Borders has nonetheless noted legislative attempts to ban any revelations about surveillance. From Australia to Tunisia, laws are being drafted that provide for long jail terms for anyone disclosing such information. RWB called for stricter regulation of surveillance technology exports during the Human Rights Council’s 26th session last June. Help by sharing this informationlast_img read more
