Here’s the one FTSE 100 share I’d buy in June

first_img Roland Head has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Burberry. 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. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 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. The stock market has rebounded strongly since March and some popular FTSE 100 shares are up by more than 50%. Investors appear to be pricing in a return to normal but, for many companies, business as usual is still a distant hope.We don’t know exactly what will happen as the global lockdown ends, so I’ve been looking for FTSE 100 stocks that should do well in almost any circumstances. The company I’ve chosen is luxury fashion brand Burberry Group (LSE: BRBY).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…The best FTSE 100 share?This FTSE 100 share has fallen by more than 25% so far this year, despite the recovery seen since late March. However, the latest update from Burberry suggests to me that the business should recover strongly from the pandemic.History tells us that spending by wealthy consumers tend to recover more quickly in a recession. Although 60% of Burberry’s stores were closed by the end of March, they’re now starting to reopen. Early indications are that customers are happy to return. According to management, sales in mainland China and South Korea are ahead of the same period last year, and still rising.We don’t know if the same trends will be seen when UK and US stores reopen. One potential concern is that stores in western markets get a lot of business from Chinese tourists. The surge in spending in China may mean these buyers are shopping at home as travel restrictions continue to bite.Therefore, although US and UK stores may take longer to recover, I’m confident this FTSE 100 share will do well as Burberry’s star designer Riccardo Tisci can keep delivering desireable collections.Rock-solid financesTwo months of lockdown has left many businesses in a dire financial position. They’ve only survived by taking on extra debt and relying heavily on government support schemes.Burberry isn’t in this position. The group went into the Covid-19 pandemic with £600m of net cash and an unused £300m credit facility. Sales have continued through the group’s website, providing limited income during this period. Despite this, Burberry said last week that it expects to write off £68m of unsold stock from its stores.This isn’t great news, but Burberry’s luxury positioning means that profit margins are high. Excluding various Covid-19-related impairment charges, Burberry reported an operating margin of 15% last year, with a return on capital employed of 22%. These numbers are well above average for a FTSE 100 share. In my opinion, they highlight the high quality of this business.Why I’d buy Burberry todayIt wasn’t long ago that Burberry was trading at more than £20 per share. As I write, the share price is just over £15, a level we first saw in August 2013. In the seven years since, the company has continued to develop its brand and increased its sales by 32%.If the firm can maintain its high profit margins, then I think we could see strong profit growth over the next five years. I don’t think this FTSE 100 share looks expensive for such a high quality business. I rate Burberry as a long-term buy at current levels.

Overflow crowd attends Duka appeal hearings

first_imgCamden, N.J. — The courtroom was packed. Despite 20 degree Fahrenheit weather, a rally outside the courthouse before the hearing started drew over one hundred loud, sign-carrying supporters. Most of the extensive press coverage before and after the hearings questioned whether the Fort Dix 5 should have been convicted.But will the pressure from the community be enough to compel the judge to reverse course and rule in favor of justice for three of the defendants?In 2008, five Muslim men, including three brothers, were entrapped in an FBI sting operation for allegedly plotting to attack the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey. In an atmosphere of Islamophobia fueled by ambitious politicians and sensationalist media headlines, the Duka brothers were convicted for a plot they literally had never heard of before their arrest. Eljvir, Dritan and Shain Duka received life sentences plus 30 years for their disputed role in a government-manufactured “conspiracy” to attack the military base 33 miles from Philadelphia.The federal government paid two informants hundreds of thousands of dollars to entrap the men, who became known as the Fort Dix 5. Chris Christie, current New Jersey governor and U.S. presidential candidate, in 2008 was the U.S. attorney who prosecuted these defendants.Eight years later, Islamophobia still pervades the media but opposition to it is more widespread. The Fort Dix Five Support Committee organized the Jan. 6 rally in front of the federal courthouse here. About 20 family members attended the rally and hearings.Supporters traveled from Texas; New York; Maryland; Washington, D.C.; Pennsylvania; and Maine as well as New Jersey. Organizations present included Witness Against Torture; the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms; The Aafia Foundation; the Philly Coalition for Racial, Economic And Legal Justice; Project SALAM; the Brandywine Peace Community; and the Catholic Worker Movement. The widespread support at the hearing showed that the Duka brothers are not alone.Using agent provocateurs, government strategy over the last decade or so is to arrest people whom the FBI suspects “might” commit crimes. The government hopes to obtain convictions before any crimes actually occur. Since Sept. 11, 2001, there have been hundreds of unjustified arrests based on evidence unfairly concocted and/or twisted to convict innocent Muslims. Prosecutors have appealed to irrational fears of Islam — Islamophobia — to gain convictions, often based on the testimony of unethical FBI agent provocateurs or informants. Many more details can be found at projectsalam.org, where a database of these cases is kept.Hearings limited to one narrow issueOn Dec. 28, 2011, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit refused to overturn the Dukas’ convictions. The Duka brothers consequently raised seven “ineffective assistance of counsel” claims in what are known as Section 2255 motions. U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler denied six of the motions but surprisingly ruled he would hold hearings (one for each Duka brother) limited to one issue: whether they had been denied their constitutional right to testify at their own trial. Kugler is the same judge who sentenced the three men to life in prison.Mohamad Shnewer and Serdar Tartar, who were co-defendants with the Dukas at trial, are also separately pursuing Section 2255 hearings.Attorneys Robert Boyle, Chad Edgar and Charles Swift represented the Duka brothers in the three separate hearings that day here in Camden. Each Duka brother testified under oath that their conspiracy convictions are flawed because their lawyers in 2008 wouldn’t let them testify at their trial. In explaining why he wanted to testify during the trial, Shain Duka stated, “The jury needed to hear from us, and we need the truth to come out, especially when you are innocent.” Attorneys Michael Huff, Troy Archie and Michael Riley all denied the charges against them.Judge Kugler gave the attorneys until Feb. 16 to submit final documents. A decision will be made after that date, probably in March.Shain Duka’s attorney, Robert Boyle, told Democracy Now! after the hearings: “Well, we’re hoping that the court rules in our favor on the narrow factual issue as to whether they were unconstitutionally deprived of their right to testify. If the court rules favorably on that, we’ll have another hearing where they will, in more detail, describe what they would have said had they testified at trial. If we prevail on that part of it, we’ll get a new trial.” (tinyurl.com/zoeyety)No matter what Kugler’s ruling is, the Camden hearings revealed that there is a growing movement of people willing to oppose Islamophobia in all its manifestations, even in politically charged cases where the government falsely claims a terror threat.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Longtime ties brought Jeremiah Donati to TCU

Photo courtesy of Jeremiah Donati. center_img printTCU Athletics Director Jeremiah Donati (left) smiles with University of Texas Athletics Director Chris Del Conte. Photo courtesy of Jeremiah Donati.While the naming of Jeremiah Donati to TCU athletics came as a surprise to some, he’s been learning about college athletics under former athletic director Chris Del Conte for more than 20 years. In fact, their longtime friendship was what first brought Donati to Fort Worth in 2011.After Del Conte was named athletic director at the University of Texas at Austin in December, TCU quickly tapped Donati to take over the job.Donati said he’s thankful for Del Conte’s mentorship and making him go beyond what his job entailed.“Chris always put more on my plate than what my job responsibilities suggested,” Donati said. “I was always doing more than what the HR department would tell you I’m here to do, and I’m forever indebted to him for that.”The friendship between Donati and Del Conte extends well beyond their professional lives– their families have been tied for decades.“When Jeremiah’s father was passing away a few years ago, his last conversation with me was to say make sure you take care of my boy,” Del Conte said. “I was happy to do that, but I haven’t taken care of Jeremiah– he’s taken care of me my whole life… He’s one of the greatest individuals I personally know. I love him dearly.”TCU Chancellor Victor Boschini said Donati’s work at TCU speaks for itself.“[Donati was the] first and only choice just because I’ve watched him over the past five or six years,” Boschini said. “I’ve seen him grow and develop the skills necessary to do the jobs. He’s a great people-person. He knows athletics. He’s a good fundraiser and friend-raiser.”Donati’s first conversation with Del Conte came at age 12 when Donati’s father took him to watch his friend Robert Del Conte’s son, Chris, do high jump at a track meet at Washington State.“He was this ball of energy coming at me,” Donati said. “I didn’t know this guy, but he knew my dad from his time on the ranch. He puts me in a headlock– first interaction– and immediately develops a nickname for me, ‘J-Man,’ which to this day he still calls me.”The RanchDel Conte’s family ran a children’s home on a 147-acre ranch in Taos, New Mexico. Robert Del Conte met Donati’s father, Dr. Richard Donati, when he was just out of medical school and looking for a place to stay. Robert Del Conte invited Richard Donati to live at the ranch in exchange for providing basic medical care for the foster children.“My dad jumped at the chance,” Donati said.Donati’s father would later become team doctor for Washington State and the University of Idaho.When Chris Del Conte was looking into graduate school programs, he contacted Dr. Donati.Dr. Donati helped Del Conte get a graduate assistant position in Washington State’s athletic department.That’s when “J-Man,” who was in high school, and Chris grew close.“Chris is nine years older than me,” Donati said. “He’s always been like an older brother– at least  when we were that age.”As Del Conte moved up in his career, he always made a way for Donati.“He goes off and gets his first job at Cal Poly,” Donati said. “He hired me for summers where I would come down and work in the development and marketing office.”When Del Conte moved on to the University of Arizona with Livengood, Donati followed.“Chris was there for seven or eight years, and I went to work for Chris during the summers when I was in law school down there and really started cutting my teeth in the business of college athletics,” Donati said.They parted when Donati graduated from law school and became an NFL agent under Leigh Steinberg, but the family ties remained.“I would see Chris every so often,” Donati said. “Our families remained close. His family lived in Southern California, so he would come to visit them… I lived in Southern California so I would go visit them every once in a while.”When Del Conte wanted to leave Rice to become the athletic director at TCU, Donati helped him work out his contract.“Ironically, I became his agent,” Donati said.The RecruitmentOnce Del Conte was settled at TCU, he started wooing Donati. The first time Donati turned him down was in 2010.“I was a member of the California Bar Association,” Donati said. “I had all the juices in the world. It’s not going to work.”Del Conte didn’t give up.“Chris called me and said, ‘Look, I need someone here who understands me and gets me, would you consider coming down here?’” Donati said.The last time Del Conte called was in 2011 and the NFL was facing a lockout with the Player’s Association.“Finally he goes, ‘Look, I’m not going to ask you again, just get your butt down here and check it out. If you don’t like it, I won’t bother you anymore,’” Donati said.Donati arrived in Fort Worth shortly after the Horned Frogs beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.Even though Amon G. Carter Stadium had just been imploded and the Horned Frogs were still in the Mountain West, Donati said he was hopeful for TCU’s future.“I thought to myself, this would be the perfect place to start over,” Donati said. “To speak and to work with a guy like Chris– and just the basic interactions I had with the chancellor and Coach Patterson– [I thought] this would be the ideal place to start.”Although Del Conte and Donati are now rivals, neither expects their relationship to change.“I’ll rely on his advice because he sat in that chair for nine years,” Donati said. “But he and I are very competitive with each other and that’s not going to go anywhere. Now that he’s at Texas and I’m at TCU, we’ll take that to another level; but we’ll always have a love and bond that goes beyond an employer-employee type of relationship.” + posts TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Facebook Twitter Linkedin TAGSChris Del ConteJeremiah Donati Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Previous articleConfederate propaganda during FWSSR causes discomfort for some studentsNext articleSchools help Fort Worth tackle a litter problem Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

At the time, at least four dogs died from poisoning.The canal walk between the bridges has also been used for grazing sheep.One owner whose dog was poisoned said that their pet went into “convolutions after walking the area and dying after 90 minutes at the veterinary clinic.Strychnine laced meat was suspected as being the cause in 2014 and it is believed that a similar method was used in recent days. Animal welfare groups have expressed concern and said that dogs ingesting poisoned meat would suffer a painful death.Locals are said to be concerned given the close proximity of the land to a primary school and a residential area.The ESB, who own the land, have reminded all local land owners that laying poison in such a manner is illegal.

No ‘definitive answers’ after Cornell University freshman’s body found at the bottom of a gorge after frat party

first_imgiStock(ITHACA, N.Y.) — The parents of a Cornell University student are demanding answers after their son died following an off-campus fraternity party.Eighteen-year-old Antonio Tsialas’ body was discovered on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 26, according to a statement on the school’s website by Ryan Lombardi, Cornell’s vice president for student and campus life.“His body was recovered this evening inside the Fall Creek gorge. A full investigation of the circumstances of his death is underway; no foul play is suspected,” the statement said. Fall Creek Gorge is part of a nature preserve in Ithaca, New York.Prior to his disappearance, Tsialas had dinner with his parents, who were visiting. He then attended an off-campus party but never returned to his dorm, his parents told “Good Morning America.”“There are people that know what happened and nothing is being said,” father John Tsialas told “GMA.”Tsialas’ parents are offering $10,000 to anyone who was at the frat party and can provide information.“We have to really take a closer look at these organizations,” said Antonio’s mother, Flavia Tomasello.“At this time, we’re just looking for the truth. We’re not trying to point fingers at anyone. We just would like the truth,” Tomasello said.Tsialas’ family has been “devastated by this and they’re looking for answers,” David Bianchi, the family’s attorney, told “GMA.”Officials are investigating the incident. University police said they have issued sobpenoes and have obtained search warrants and will eventually turn over that evidence to state investigators.“While we do not yet have definitive answers about the cause of his death, it is already widely known that an unregistered fraternity-sponsored event took place on October 24, that alcohol was served, and that first-year students, including Mr. Tsialas, were in attendance,” said Cornell University President Martha E. Pollack in a statement sent to the Ithaca campus community on Nov. 8.She said in the same statement that the fraternity events, “regrettably follow a pattern of misconduct in the Greek-letter system” and that the event Tsialas attended was “… an unregistered fraternity-sponsored event…”Bianchi said that the fraternity, Pi Kappa Psi, played a “huge role in what happened here.”“The leaders of this particular fraternity, they served large quantities of alcohol,” he said.The Pi Kappa Psi fraternity told ABC News in a statement that they extend their deepest condolences to the Tsialas family and that its members are working with police in the investigation.Tsialas’ death is most recent in a pattern of fraternity-related deaths. Last week, Samuel Martinez, a Washington State University student, was found dead at a fraternity house near campus.A preliminary investigation indicated Martinez’s death may be alcohol-related but investigators don’t believe the incident met the definition of hazing, police said.San Diego State University recently suspended 14 fraternities after freshman Dylan Hernandez died days after attending Phi Gamma Delta event on Nov. 6.In early October, Ohio University suspended all 15 of its Interfraternity Council (IFC) fraternity chapters after a student died in an alleged hazing incident.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Global First: house is sold direct via a property portal listing

first_imgHome » News » Auctions news » Global First: house is sold direct via a property portal listing previous nextAuctions newsGlobal First: house is sold direct via a property portal listingThe Negotiator22nd October 20200136 Views A family house in Ireland is being claimed as the first in the world to be sold directly via an online auction on a property portal.The auction took place on 11th September, simultaneously on MyHome.ie, which is Ireland’s answer to Rightmove, and the website of Artis, an estate agency which specialises in upmarket properties within the Irish city.The pilot auction sold the detached five-bedroom house in the Shankhill area of Dublin for €605,000 (£570,000), €35,000 more than its reserve price of €370,000.The hour-long auction, which saw 28 bids by three different anonymous bidders, was handled by Irish auction proptech platform Offr which recently launched in the UK.To use the service, agents add an Offr button to a listings and, after potential bidders have logged in and qualified themselves, the button then opens up an in-page auction tab where the bidding battle then takes place. Those not registered are able to watch.“The sale forms part of an informal pilot collaboration between Offr, Myhome and their mutual agent clients, to explore the concept of an agent being able to hold an online auction simultaneously on their own website and on the property listing on the portal website, with buyers able to register and bid from either website, using the Offr button,” says Robert Hoban, the CEO of Offr.https://offr.io/ online auction on a property portal Irish auction proptech platform Offr Global First myHome.ie Robert Hoban property portal October 22, 2020Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?
