The green recovery! I’d buy these renewable energy stocks to profit

Boris Johnson is planning a green recovery for the UK economy. To this end, the government is planning to invest £12bn in renewable energy initiatives over the next few years. The prime minister also wants to turn the country into the Saudi Arabia of wind by 2030. Estimates suggest this could cost as much as £50bn. That might appear to be an extraordinary sum, but a significant auction of wind energy rights next year could attract up to £20bn of investment from the private sector alone. 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…And it’s not just the UK that is investing heavily in renewable energy. Other countries are spending tens of billions on new green energy projects too. With that being the case, I’m currently looking for renewable energy stocks that may be able to profit from this theme. Renewable energy investmentsOne organisation leading the charge is energy group SSE (LSE: SSE). Last week, the company set out plans to triple its renewable energy generation by 2030.It is already planning the world’s largest offshore wind farm. The 3.2GW Dogger Bank offshore wind farm could be operational by 2026. In total, the group is planning to invest £7.5bn in renewable energy projects in the near term. A chunk of this funding will come from asset sales.Management is planning to flog approximately £3bn of assets over the next few years. This will help reposition the business away from its traditional footprints and towards renewable energy. Based on the shift, I’m optimistic about the company’s outlook. Green energy is a booming business, and costs are significantly lower. This should help the enterprise’s profit margins and growth potential. And as the business perseveres with its growth objectives, investors will be paid to wait. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 6%.Wind incomeAnother renewable energy income play I’ve been taking a closer look at recently is Greencoat UK Wind (LSE: UKW). This company owns and operates a selection of wind farms throughout the UK. These farms provide a steady stream of income for the business. Management reinvests a portion of the income. The group also returns a large chunk of cash to investors every year. It recently declared a 1.8p per share dividend for the quarter to the end of September. That suggests an annualised dividend of 7.2p per share, or a dividend yield of 5.5% on the current stock price. When it comes to growth, the firm has lots of options. Over the past few years, the company has built a £2.2bn portfolio of wind farms around the UK. It’s used capital from existing assets, debt and cash from investors to build this renewable energy bank of assets. With a strong pipeline of new wind farms under construction around the country, Greencoat should have lots of options to buy new assets in future. As such, I think this stock has the potential to provide investors like me with steady dividend growth for years to come.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

As the FTSE 100 stays above 7,000, Aviva and Pearson shares rise

Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! For regular stock market investing ideas and help choosing the best shares to buy now, sign up to The Motley Fool today. As the FTSE 100 stays above 7,000, Aviva and Pearson shares rise It has a £5.9bn market cap and forward price-to-earnings ratio of 24. Earnings per share are 41p, and its dividend yield is 2.3%. Today its share price is rising again. But while demand for online education has undoubtedly been ramping up since the pandemic started, competition is fierce. Unfortunately, Pearson has considerable debt too. While the Pearson share price reached a high of nearly £15 a share in 2015, it’s since experienced extreme volatility and only once exceeded £10 in 2018. I think it’s been a disappointment to many shareholders. I’m not feeling overly confident in this stock and think its potential is possibly priced-in. With the world reopening, the demand for online education may pull back. Therefore, I won’t be adding it to my Stocks and Shares ISA today.Aviva share price risesThe Aviva share price is also rising today. The British insurer endured some operational challenges last year, but its shares still rose 69%.In its March 2021 earnings call, Aviva confirmed a robust balance sheet with £13bn in capital surplus, cover ratio of 202% and liquidity of £4.1bn.The Aviva share price began a downward trajectory in 2018 (and fell off a cliff as the pandemic took hold). It lost investor trust in 2018 after giving the impression it was cancelling £450m worth of preference shares as part of a plan to reduce hybrid debt by £900m. Preference shares pay dividends regardless of a company’s performance. This caused an outcry and led Aviva to be criticised for its governance.Despite the challenges posed by Covid-19, 2020 was a record year in its key growth areas. It achieved 8% growth in its commercial lines compared with 2019. And attracted £6bn worth of new business sales in bulk purchase annuities (company pensions).Unfortunately, it wasn’t all good news. Personal lines and its asset management division saw weak profitability. Yet, after a couple of trying years, this was better than expected. Aviva is now disposing some of its foreign entities throughout 2021 to help streamline its operations for a brighter future.I like that Aviva’s price-to-earnings ratio is a very low 5 and earnings per share are 70p. Its dividend yield now sits around 5%. There are some risks to this business, but I think insurance is an area that continues to see demand. Furthermore, with such a low P/E and enticing dividend, I’m tempted to buy shares in Aviva. The FTSE 100 has managed to stay above 7,000 index points for three days running. Various factors have been contributing to the positive sentiment. Major mining stocks boosted share prices on Wednesday, followed by tobacco stocks on Thursday. Today it appears to be The Bank of England’s improved growth forecasts bolstering the FTSE 100, with Rolls-Royce Holdings and Anglo American’s share prices both rising over 2%. Meanwhile, Pearson (LSE:PSON) and Aviva (LSE:AV) are also enjoying a positive turn in fortunes.Tech stock Pearson risesYesterday, educational publisher Pearson was top of the FTSE 100 risers, up over 3%. This turned out to be in response to institutional research company Exane BNP Paribas upgrading its guidance on the stock. Pearson provides educational products and services to governments, educational institutions, corporations, and professional bodies globally. And Exane believes Pearson will successfully scale its direct-to-consumer educational tech revenues.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 a recent trading update, Pearson noted it’s making good progress in its ongoing shift to digital and will soon launch a college app. Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Kirsteen Mackay | Friday, 7th May, 2021 | More on: AV PSON center_img Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Goodson’s family speaks out, demands subway elevators

first_imgOfficial explanations of major events would have us believe that bad things happen to people at random — tragic incidents of bad luck.When 22-year-old mother Malaysia Goodson fell to her death down subway stairs in January while carrying her stroller and her baby (the baby survived), the city medical examiner and the New York Police Department claimed that the fall was due to some unexplained “pre-existing medical condition.” That was on Jan. 30, two days after the fatal fall. Since then, neither agency has given any details to support this claim.That explanation was meant to dismiss the fact that the Metropolitan Transit Authority subway station at 53rd Street and 7th Avenue, where Goodson fell to her death, has no elevators. And that the entire New York subway system lacks universal accessibility, with fewer than a quarter of the stations having elevators, which are constantly breaking down.This dire situation has been highlighted by accessibility advocates for years. In fact, two days after Goodson’s fall, wheelchair users and organized advocacy groups protested at the subway station where the death occurred. Media coverage of the protest, however, was dominated by headlines claiming Goodson had a “pre-existing condition.”People with pre-existing conditions of all kinds use public transportation. They should be able to do so without having to navigate dangerous stairs. The use of this phrase also falsely paints the demand for elevators as coming only from people who are mobility impaired. It keeps the issue isolated politically — because it seems like it’s coming from just one group, people with disabilities, who face daily oppression and social marginalization.Since Goodson’s death, parents have acted to overcome that false divide. Mothers like Christine Coleman and Christine Yearwood have joined accessibility advocates at MTA board meetings and at courthouse rallies in order to express solidarity with Goodson’s family and break the demand for elevators out of political isolation.On March 27, at the monthly MTA board meeting, Dontaysia Turner — the cousin of Malaysia Goodson and herself a mother — gave testimony that continued that trend in the most powerful way.“I’m a mother of two,” Turner told the board, “so I know the struggle of walking up and down the stairs with a baby and bags and strollers. … It’s not fair. I feel like you guys are raising the price and nothing is being done. I want to know, where is all this money going?“We need elevators, if not at every station, at least at every other station. You have people with strollers, babies, pregnant, walkers, wheelchairs, anything you can think of struggling up and down these stairs. It’s not right, it’s not fair. I feel like you all have to do something fast, quick, before something like this happens again. … I don’t want anyone else’s family to feel the pain my family feels.” Turner concluded: “We talk about my cousin every day. She should still be here with us. I shouldn’t be here talking on her behalf.”Turner’s testimony caused a flurry of local media attention, including the revelation that the MTA has never reached out to the family with any apology or condolences after Goodson’s death. Acting MTA chair Frank Ferrer’s response — “I’m sorry that it didn’t happen. That’s regrettable” — rang hollow. Surely MTA lawyers forbid officials from contacting the family because that would imply responsibility and make a justifiable lawsuit easier for the family.Before Turner spoke at the board meeting, a sidewalk protest gathered outside MTA headquarters. It was called to honor Goodson for International Working Women’s Month.Showing the increasing solidarity among different class forces calling for elevators, the majority of protesters were from the accessibility movement. Mary Kaessinger, a wheelchair user and leader of The People’s MTA, opened with: “This is a rally to honor Malaysia Goodson, a woman who fell to her death down the subway stairs. Had there been an elevator, that wouldn’t have happened.”International Action Center leader Teresa Gutierrez called attention to the more than $1 trillion Trump had just approved for the U.S. military: “Let’s take the money that exists in this country and use it for elevators. It’s a basic human right!”March 8, International Women’s Day, inspired by a march in 1908 and a three-month strike by women immigrant garment workers from 1909 to 1910 in New York City, was officially recognized in August 1910 by European socialists. Lack of safety measures in garment shops was a key issue for these workers. Seven months after IWD was recognized, the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire occurred in NYC, in which 146 garment workers, mostly women, were killed,  due to treacherous working conditions and the bosses’ blatant disregard for their safety. IWD takes on heightened meaning today as women workers, especially women of color, and all oppressed people intensify the fight against a society that values profits over people. Over a hundred years later, preventable deaths still occur. On March 28, 25 people were killed in Bangladesh in a high-rise office building with locked emergency exits. Many jumped to their death. This is a recurring problem in areas relying on super-exploitative working conditions to boost capitalist profits, with no provisions for workers’ safety.In the case of the MTA, so much of its money goes to repaying loans from Goldman Sachs and other banks that it never has enough left to actually maintain the system. A December 2017 New York Times article reported that the MTA pays debt service at the rate of $83 a second.Most of that money is interest — money banks get for doing nothing. None of it is taxed. The pre-existing condition that may have ultimately killed Malaysia Goodson is capitalism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Will TV presenter finally be produced alive in court today?

first_img May 31, 2021 Find out more Case against Amadou Vamoulké baseless, French lawyers tell Cameroon court Amadou Vamoulké, the former head of Cameroon’s state radio and TV broadcaster CRTV, who has been held provisionally for nearly four years, was brought before a special criminal court in Yaoundé for the 30th time on 26 May. Although aged 70 and ill, he was not one of the detainees released last month by President Paul Biya to reduce prison overcrowding during the coronavirus epidemic. At least one coronavirus case has already been identified in the Yaoundé prison where he is being held. After asking for months for him to be medevacked, RSF has just referred his case to the UN special rapporteur on the right to health. News After months of legal battles and a sit-in outside the Fako high court in Buea on 14 May, Wazizi’s lawyers finally won the right to present a habeas corpus petition in court. This petition, which RSF has seen, requires the soldiers holding him to bring his “body whether dead of alive” to the Fako high court today.  But his lawyers, who have had no access to him since last August, are not optimistic. When reached by telephone, one of them, Samuel Abuwe Ajiekha, said: “As he was not made available to the court yet, he is most likely dead already.” Journalist Samuel Wazizi from private channel Chillen Media Television (CMTV), Region of Buea, Cameroon. Facebook photo. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is extremely concerned about the fate of a TV presenter known as Samuel Wazizi in Buea, the capital of Cameroon’s English-speaking South-West Region, who has not been seen alive since shortly after his arrest in August 2019. Like his lawyers, RSF wonders whether he will finally be produced in court today. Organisation News News RSF_en Journalists are often detained arbitrarily and prosecuted before special courts in Cameroon. The victims have included RFI Hausa-language correspondent Ahmed Abba, who was held incommunicado for several months, tortured by intelligence officials, and threatened by a military court with the death sentence before finally being released in December 2017, after being detained for a total of 29 months. “This journalist’s incommunicado detention and the complete lack of news about him make us fear the worst,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “If he is still alive, there is no justification for the army to hold him without allowing his family and lawyers to see him and without producing him in court. He is being held in a completely illegal manner and in violation of the most basic principles of law. If no proof of life is provided and if he is not produced in court today, the concern about his fate will increase. We urge the Cameroonian authorities to end the long months of silence and to shed all possible light on this case.” to go further Help by sharing this information CameroonAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Armed conflictsImprisonedJudicial harassment Receive email alerts News Cameroon is ranked 134th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index, three places lower than in 2019. A popular presenter on privately owned Chillen Media Television (CMTV), Wazizi, whose real name is Samuel Abuwe Ajiekha, was held at Muea police station in Buea for the first five days after his arrest on 2 August 2019. But on 7 August, his lawyers learned that he had been handed over to the 21st Motorized Infantry Battalion in Buea, where he has been held incommunicado ever since.
