Could buying now help to make me a millionaire? In a similar way to most investors, I’m always on the look out for stocks that could potentially make me a millionaire. Here’s a quick spoiler alert — I’m not a millionaire currently. So I’m still very much in the game of finding high-quality companies that have a bright future. I think Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) is one such firm with an attractive-looking share price right now. The millionaire mindsetFirst, let’s run through what we need to identify in a stock in order to put it on the millionaire-maker shortlist. The big one for me is trying to buy when the market is selling. You can refer to this as a contrarian approach, in that I’m going against the tide. The truth is that often the market in general will overreact to any situation. This can be either by overbuying or selling a stock, which distorts it from a fair value.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…When applying this to the Lloyds share price, it ticks the box. The share price is down over 50% this year. It has been pushed lower by the pandemic, weak consumer demand and low interest rates. So someone might look at the company and think that this isn’t a strong buy. But if you believe in the longer-term potential for the firm to bounce back (as I do), then this is exactly the distortion from fair value that warrants an investment.After all, a move back to range of the past five years (50p-80p) would see a current investment return of well over 100%. When trying to become a millionaire, those are the kind of returns needed. Why the Lloyds share price?Other banks within the FTSE 100 index have taken a similar hit on share price performance. But Lloyds is arguably the most UK-focused bank in the index, and has seen a steeper fall. For example, the truly global bank HSBC is down around 36% this year. So even though the banking sector as a whole could be a good buy, Lloyds seems to me to be the real low-hanging fruit.In a recent trading update, the bank said it has taken a huge £1.43bn hit for impairments on the credit and lending side. That means writing down/off the value of an asset (such as a loan). This reflects the potential for a lot of defaults or push-backs from businesses and consumers in the UK on loans. But a lot of the fall in the Lloyds share price is pricing-in the worst case scenario. The impairment charge may be revised in coming updates, consumer demand may bounce back quicker than expected. The bank could benefit from government pandemic measures. Low interest rates could be spun into a positive. For example, it could allow the bank to push clients towards higher profit areas such as wealth management.Let me just reiterate, the market can overreact and oversell stocks that offer good long-term potential profits. As for aiming for a million, buying low (from the market crash) will put you in a much better position than buying at record highs. Lloyds may not make me a millionaire on its own, but share price rises and an eventual return to dividends could help me get there.

Melanie May | 29 August 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 Tagged with: Civil Society Strategy Finance Funding An alliance of charity bodies, supported by funders, has put forward a proposal for a community wealth fund that would use unclaimed financial assets to help communities in need.The alliance includes NCVO, Small Charities Coalition, Local Trust, and Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales. It believes that such a fund would help to meet key ambitions set out in the government’s recent Civil Society Strategy by providing long-term strategic investment to support areas that have struggled with economic and social challenges.The proposal, Strong resourceful communities: The case for a Community Wealth Fund asks the government to commit the next wave of unclaimed financial assets from the likes of bonds, shares, insurance policies and pension funds to a new £1-2billion endowment to support these ‘left behind’ communities.It also suggests that committing these unclaimed assets, supplemented by other dormant assets, could also attract corporate support and could over time grow the fund to a value in the region of £5bn.It proposes using these funds to try and meet the ambitions of the Civil Society Strategy by creating place-based investment programmes, introducing a new model of investment that would bring together finance from a range of sources to raise social and economic outcomes, and developing new approaches in ‘left behind’ communities that lack the capacity and capability to access investment.The alliance is also asking any other organisations that support the idea of a Community Wealth Fund and would like to be part of future conversations to sign up.Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive of NCVO said:“In the wake of the Brexit referendum and Grenfell there’s a real sense that something really ambitious is required to address the feeling of being ‘left behind’ that some communities obviously feel quite intensely. We believe that a significant endowment with the potential of the Community Wealth Fund is needed to support connection, place making and to put decision making power and resources into the hands of local communities.”Matt Leach, Chief Executive of Local Trust added: Advertisement 108 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 Charity bodies & funders unite with proposal for community wealth fund “The Community Wealth Fund would enable people and places to design and commission activities, drawing on local strengths and assets and tailoring services to people’s actual needs. It could be targeted at those places most in need of support and provide the scale of investment required to develop the social capital needed for transformative social and economic change.”The proposal is supported by the Church Urban Fund, Barrow Cadbury Trust, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales, The City of London Corporation’s charitable funder, City Bridge Trust, Local Trust and NCVO. It is based on consultation with Locality, UK Community Foundations, Social Enterprise UK, Co-operatives UK, Charity Finance Group, Access – The Foundation for Social Investment, London Funders Group and the London Communities Commission, Small Charities Coalition, Voice4Change, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and The Panel for the Civil Society Futures Inquiry. 107 total views, 1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Ángeles Maestro, leader of Red Roja (Red Network) in the Spanish state, and two of her comrades have been accused of “financing terrorism” by raising and delivering funds to Palestinian organizations which help the victims of the Israeli military’s attacks on Gaza in 2014 and 2015. The Israeli attacks killed hundreds and wounded thousands of Palestinian people, while destroying many homes, schools and hospitals.Maestro, who was an elected member of the Spanish National Assembly in the 1990s for the United Left party, may be known to readers of Workers World, as some of her articles and analysis have been published here. The three militants have been summoned to appear before Court No. 6 of the National High Court on Feb. 5, which will decide how to proceed against them. Two Israeli associations based in Spain filed the complaint, working through a U.S.-based lawyer. The accused face a possible sentence of 1-5 years in prison and a fine of about 25,000 euro, now worth about $28,600.The group collected the funds mostly through small contributions of 10-20 euro and delivered them to well-known Palestinian liberation fighter Leila Khaled, who was on a speaking tour in Spain at the time. Maestro says she believes the charge is based on Khaled’s membership in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which the European Union in 2002, in an anti-Arab frenzy following the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington, D.C., declared to be a “terrorist organization.”Maestro explained in an interview with Canarias Semanal on Jan. 28 how Zionist organizations intervene to try to stop solidarity with Palestine: “In the Spanish state, for example, numerous city councils, universities, etc., have reached agreements not to support the institutions of the State of Israel, in the framework of the BDS campaign (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions). Faced with this, the Zionist lobby responds by trying to criminalize this solidarity and launching the accusation of “anti-Semitism.” Maestro and the Red Network pledge to continue their solidarity work with the Palestinian struggle for self-determination.To read the communique of the Red Network in English, see tinyurl.com/yc6zeq3z.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Home Indiana Agriculture News WTO Could Issue Final COOL Ruling Friday Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleHot, Dry Weather Could Make It Harder For Growers To Control WeedsNext articleNew CFO And CAFO Rules Require Operational Changes Gary Truitt Source: NAFB News Service WTO Could Issue Final COOL Ruling Friday By Gary Truitt – Jun 26, 2012 We should have the World Trade Organization’s final say on the U.S. country of origin labeling rule Friday. The WTO’s highest tribunal is expected to have its decision on the U.S. government’s appeal of a dispute panel’s ruling in the COOL case. Canada and Mexico have argued the rule violates international trade agreements – specifically a WTO deal that limits the use of technical barriers to trade. The dispute panel sided largely with Canada and Mexico in its final decision – which the U.S. government appealed in March. The ruling of the Appellate Body – expected June 29th (Friday) – is the final step in the case. If the U.S. loses the case – the Obama Administration will likely get a request from the WTO to change the existing COOL rule.According to the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association – the COOL issue is costing their industry more than 100-million dollars each year. The group says it has spent more than two-million Canadian dollars to support their government’s case and they will not back down until the issue is resolved. The group is hopeful that will be soon.

News UpdatesPatna High Court To Decide Viability Of Establishing NGO-Run Covid Care Centres Exclusively For Lawyers Akshita Saxena3 May 2021 1:01 AMShare This – xRepresentative imageThe Patna High Court will today consider the feasibility of establishing COVID Care Centres, exclusively for benefit of Lawyers, in case they are infected with COVID-19 virus, the disease is mild and the main requirement is of their isolation and care. A Division Bench comprising of Justices CS Singh and Mohit Kumar Shah is awaiting a report in this regard, to be submitted by the Head of a technical team deputed by the Central Government for Covid-management in the State. It may be noted that the Bench was considering certain grievances raised before it relating to lack of adequate infrastructure in the CCCs. A suggestion was made thereof for utilization of the newly constructed building— ‘Shatabdi Bhawan’ situated adjacent to the High Court campus, as a CCC to accommodate infected lawyers. Significantly, the State Government did not support the idea on two counts: (i) in case a CCC is established exclusively for lawyers, the same may generate demand for similar facility from other groups of the society; (ii) even otherwise the resources of the State is stretched out and it does not have the manpower to spare for establishing a CCC exclusively for lawyers. The Advocate General in his capacity as Chairman, Bihar State Bar Council also opposed the said proposal. Thus, noting that the State shall not provide any assistance to CCC, if established, the Court desired to know from the abovementioned Technical Team as to whether the possibility of providing some infrastructure/manpower by the non-governmental organizations can be explored. The Head of the Technical Team assured the Court that he will visit the site with the representatives of the NGO and Amicus Curiae and inform the Court accordingly.The order further states:”The Court will consider passing necessary orders in this regard on Monday (03.05.2021) after examining the report to be submitted by Dr. Bhadani in this regard. In the meantime it shall also be open for the Ld. members of the Coordination Committee of the three Associations to explore the possibility of establishing a CCC exclusively for lawyers at the Shatabdi Bhavan, at their end.” The matter will be heard today. In related news, the Patna High Court has issued a Circular directing the concerned health authorities to provide immediate treatment to infected Judicial Officers in the State. It further provides that in case the medical condition of any such officer is serious, then they should be treated at COVID Care Centres (CCCs), Dedicated COVID Health Centres (DCHCs) and Dedicated COVID Hospitals (DCHs), as per prescribed norms.
