Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! There are many investors who swear by the shiny stuff and they propose you stash a portion of your portfolio in a vehicle that tracks the price of gold. Many consider such a move to add to the diversification of asset classes you own if you also hold things such as shares, bonds, property, and cash.In fairness, the price of gold has done well over the first 20 years of this millennium and is up by just over 450%, as I write. And it tends to rise in times of economic uncertainty, which is something we’ve seen loads of over the period.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…Gold is a poor substitute for sharesHowever, betting on the price of gold is a poor substitute for holding the shares of companies backed by good-quality, growing businesses. Companies can generate value while you hold their stock. They can increase their cash inflow, assets, and shareholder dividends, all of which could lead to a rising share price.Gold, on the other hand, can’t do any of that. It just sits there and looks at you, to paraphrase super-investor Warren Buffett. Those tracking the price of gold have enjoyed a good run over the past couple of decades but there’s no telling where gold will be 20 years from now – it could even go down in price!Rather than following the gold price directly, I’d rather invest in gold mining companies if I believe that the price of gold will rise. Mining companies can add value through their operations and, in many cases, pay me a handsome dividend along the way, which will gradually compensate me for taking the risk of holding the shares in the first place.Likewise, with other commodities such as silver, platinum, copper, and coal. Instead of betting on commodity prices I’d look for shares backed by an underlying company dealing in the stuff.But commodity mining companies represent just one sector of the market and a highly cyclical one at that. So, with £20k to invest in 2020, I’d aim to invest in the most compelling opportunities represented by company shares that I can find, regardless of their sector.A triangle of factors to search for in stocksMy search would start by looking for strong quality indicators such as high profit margins and returns on capital. A good trading record of revenue, earnings, cash flow, and shareholder dividends, all rising a bit each year would indicate decent operational momentum. Then, after establishing the quality of the enterprise, I’d aim to buy the shares as cheaply as possible and check out the strength of the balance sheet, so the focus would be on valuation. Finally, I’d look for a catalyst or a good reason to believe that the business will improve in the months and years ahead.Indeed, searching for quality, operational momentum, and good value strikes me as a powerful triangle of factors to turbocharge my investments through 2020 and beyond. 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.

Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 14th November, 2020 How should I invest a lump sum of £5,000 in today’s market? That’s a question many investors might be asking right now. The outlook for the global economy is highly uncertain, and investing in this environment is not straightforward. However, I’m confident that by following the tried and tested investment strategy of buying high-quality, blue-chip stocks at attractive valuations, I can build a large financial nest egg over time. As such, today I’m going to highlight the five shares I would buy right now with a lump sum investment. 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…How should I invest today? One company I would buy straight away is consumer goods giant Unilever. I would buy the stock to form the foundations of my portfolio due to its defensive nature, strong balance sheet, large profit margins and history of returning cash to investors. The group has seen an increase in the demand for its cleaning products this year, offsetting a decline in other areas. This has helped it weather the pandemic with relative ease. Another company I would consider buying is health and safety business Halma. This organisation has gone from strength to strength over the past decade. Using a combination of organic growth and acquisitions, the firm’s profits have grown steadily, and investors have seen large returns. I think this trend will continue. As Halma continues to grow, it can roll more profit back into deals to boost its bottom line. Further, the market for health and safety equipment is only likely to continue to expand in the long run. On the same theme, I would add distribution group Bunzl to my portfolio. This is another business that has a strong track record of growth through acquisitions and organic expansion. As distribution is a relatively low-margin business, the most prominent companies tend to achieve the best returns. As one of the largest distribution businesses in the country, this suggests Bunzl is well placed to continue its growth march in the decades ahead. Income investments If I were to ask the internet ‘how should I invest,’ I would see some articles about buying dividend stocks. That’s how I’d manage my portfolio. I’d own growth stocks alongside some dividend champions. In this case, I’d pick mining group BHP and Phoenix. I’m excited about the near-term prospects for BHP. As the world tries to rebuild after Covid-19, demand for raw materials will likely rise, which should push up prices. As the world’s largest mining group, BHP should see more enormous profits as a result. Meanwhile, Phoenix Group is seeing rising demand for its services from companies. Businesses pay the organisation to take on their pension funds. Phoenix can use its size and scale to push down costs and increase profit margins. It then returns extra cash to investors. The stock supports a dividend yield of around 6.5%, which, in my opinion, makes it a top income stock. See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves
NCVO launches campaign for new Charity Bill in 2003 Queen’s Speech Howard Lake | 1 October 2002 | News 52 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Law / policy NCVO The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has today launched a campaign for a new Charity Bill which will implement the Strategy Unit’s recommendations on charity law as legislation to be introduced in the 2003 Queen’s Speech.The campaign was launched at a fringe meeting at the Labour Party conference in Blackpool.Campbell Robb, NCVO’s Director of Public Policy, told delegates: “NCVO believes that it is essential, in the interest of preserving public trust and confidence in charities, that the recommendations announced by the Government’s Strategy Unit last week are enacted through a new Charity Bill in next years’ Queen’s speech. There can be no compromise and no delay. The voluntary sector must work to ensure that having come this far charity law reform makes it from the shelf onto the statute books.”The campaign is designed to achieve a new Bill that includes the statutory measures as recommended by the Strategy Unit report:• Charitable status to be dependent on evidence of public benefit• Reform of the Charity Commission to focus it on its regulatory role• An independent appeals mechanism with a suitors ‘fighting’ fundRobb added: “The Strategy Unit report gives the voluntary sector real hope of seeing the long overdue reform of our antiquated charity law. This opportunity must not be wasted. We must guard against this iimportant legislation slipping down the Parliamentary agenda and being lost amongst other legislative priorities.”The NCVO’s campaign will include generating concern about the current nature of charity law, raising awareness of the need for new legislation, and briefings for MPs, Peers and opinion formers.NCVO’s new Charity Law Experts Group, chaired by Lady Winifred Tumim, will hold its first meeting on 8 October to discuss the details of appropriate legislation.www.ncvo-vol.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

More than two dozen contributors outline these key themes in greater detail, and identify issues and resources for those seeking further exploration.Many of those engaged in developing the report are discussing the topics addressed in Impacting Responsibly at the Good Tech Fest currently being held in Chicago (21 to 23 May). The coalition will then continue to discuss the findings of the report with the social sector throughout the year via webinars and presentations at conferences.It hopes that Impacting Responsibly will help to identify both key paths worthy of further exploration and help drive consensus for appropriate follow-up recommendations interested parties can take to further explore these topics.Brian Komar, VP Global Impact at Salesforce.org, said:“The impact measurement movement presents a unique opportunity to reimagine how to address long-standing sector challenges including diversity and inclusion, beneficiary feedback, onerous reporting, and transparency and accountability. Overcoming these challenges and seizing these opportunities, however, will not happen if left to chance.”Shena Ashley, Vice President of the Urban Institute, noted: Advertisement 396 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Tagged with: data research Salesforce.org-led coalition urges action on social impact measurement “With the mainstreaming of measurement tools and approaches, more organisations have the opportunity to demonstrate what works and inform better policy and practice.” Melanie May | 22 May 2019 | News 395 total views, 2 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.

The win improves the Horned Frogs to 11-1, the best start in school history.Okonkwo finished 3-of-6 from deep en route to 17 points, four rebounds and a block.

The senior continued her strong play against the Mountaineers, averaging 15.6 points and 8.2 rebounds in her five career games against West Virginia.Amy Okonkwo led the TCU offense in their defeat of West Virginia. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.West Virginia was struggling to stop the TCU offense and the Horned Frogs were dominating the Mountaineers on the defensive end. The 48 points scored by West Virginia were not only significantly below their season average of 80.1 per game, but that was also the Mountaineers lowest total of the season.On top of that, West Virginia shot just 32.1 percent from the field, extending TCU’s streak of holding teams to 40 percent shooting or less to 11 games.After the Mountaineers claimed a one-point lead barely 30 seconds into the game, the Horned Frogs never looked back. TCU used 10-3 and 16-0 runs to go up by as much as 20 in the first half. They went into the locker room at halftime with a 36-22 lead.The game was back-and-forth from there, with the Horned Frogs producing enough offense to maintain their halftime lead and cruise to victory.Center Jordan Moore joined Okonkwo in double-digits with 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting. The senior also tied for a game-high three blocks. She has played a huge role in the Horned Frogs leading the Big 12 with 7.3 blocks per game this season.The victory gives the Horned Frogs eight-straight wins, tying for the second-longest win streak in program history.For the first time in over a month, TCU will head on the road for their next game to play Oklahoma State.
