This FTSE 100 growth stock could keep growing profits even as COVID-19 spreads

first_img It’s another day of carnage on financial markets. Rising infection rates, and increasingly-restrictive measures to contain the coronavirus outbreak, are giving investors the heebie jeebies. To sour the mood still further, FTSE 100 giants Associated British Foods and Flutter Entertainment became the latest blue-chips to warn on profits on Monday.It’s a theme that markets are becoming accustomed to as the coronavirus advances through the global population. EY Club says that 90% of profit warnings from UK plc (from February 26 to March 9) directly cited the impact of the pandemic. The economic forecasters told Bloomberg that they expected the number of warnings to rise “significantly” should the virus keep spreading too.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…A rapid acceleration in the number of reported cases in recent days doesn’t bode well. Data from John Hopkins University today shows that there are now more than 87,000 confirmed infections outside China. This outstrips the reported 80,860 cases inside that country.Defensive darlingSo it’s no surprise that the Footsie has plunged to fresh multi-year lows in start-of-week trade. Having fallen below 5,000 points it’s now at its lowest since the onset of the 2008/09 financial crisis.There’s one company that’s performed better than most in recent hours, however.  Reckitt Benckiser Group (LSE: RB) hasn’t gone off on a charge but, in the current climate at least. even modest gains are enough to set chins wagging. The household goods giant was last 0.2% higher from last week’s close.It hasn’t all been good news for the Footsie firm though. Rampant share market selling saw it close at £51.50 per share on Friday, the lowest level for five+ years. Recent weakness leaves it dealing on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 18.4 times, a long way below its historical average well north of 20 times. But I reckon this presents a decent buying opportunity.Keeping the world clean and healthyIt’s possible that the penny has dropped and the market has realised Reckitt Benckiser’s brilliant defensive qualities. It’s highly unlikely — at least in this Fool’s opinion — that the company will see profits fall off a cliff as many British blue-chips will as the COVID-19 crisis bites.I recently touched on this theme when talking about PZ Cussons. It’s not just that Reckitt Benckiser’s range of essential household products carry enormous brand power. It’s that demand for its goods, like that for Cussons with its soaps and other personal hygiene products, is likely to get steadily stronger as public fear escalates.Reckitt Benckiser’s Dettol and Lysol ranges of disinfectant products will be particularly popular at the present time. With fears over coronavirus and seasonal flu spiking, the FTSE 100 company is likely to see its Mucinix and Strepsils throat and chest medications flying off the shelves too, along with its Nurofen painkiller pills.In an era when profit warnings are becoming the norm, Reckitt Benckiser could well provide some welcome relief to investors. And in light of recent price weakness I reckon it’s one of the best dip buys out there.

We can’t always take General Convention decisions literally – in the same way we read Scripture and don’t take it literally.”That suggestion prompted a number of comments on Twitter among those following council under the Twitter hashtag #ExCoun. One tweet said “Wonder if my diocese will decide not to take its payments to the national church literally” and another suggested “there are a lot of delegates who travelled great distances who must cringe at #excoun call to not take #GenCon too li…[literally].”Asked Oct. 18 during a press conference before the end of council’s Oct. 15-18 meeting to interpret her remarks, the presiding bishop said she does believe that council’s “responsibility is to take the work that’s been done at General Convention and apply it during the coming triennium.”“A very narrow interpretation or construal of what particular resolutions might say may not fit the context two years down the road,” she said. “In the same way we read the Bible given our current context, understand the context in which it was written and looking at how those things have changed, we have to use our reason as well as the tradition and I think you can look the resolutions of convention as a tradition. I’m expecting members of council to gather the best resources around them to respond to the needs of the church and the world.”— The Rev.

Iowa Senate Stands Firm on RFS

Previous articleHoosier Farmers Encouraged to Join 2013 Indiana Grown ProgramNext articleA More Farmer Friendly EPA Andy Eubank Iowa Senate Stands Firm on RFS Facebook Twitter Home Energy Iowa Senate Stands Firm on RFS SHARE SHARE The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) Tuesday congratulated the Iowa Senate for voting unanimously to pass Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 5 (SCR 5) that  urges the United States government to continue its commitment to energy independence and maintain its support of the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).SCR 5, in part, states: “The United States government is urged to renew its commitment to this nation’s energy security, move the United States toward greater energy independence and security as required by the federal Energy Independence and Security Act, and use all efforts to meet the highest possible renewable fuel volume requirements set forth in RFS2 in order to ensure that this nation achieves energy independence.”“I commend the Iowa Senate for showing solidarity with the Iowa Congressional delegation by urging the federal government to stand behind the federal RFS, our nation’s most successful energy policy,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “The RFS forms the bedrock of Iowa’s economic resilience – creating good-paying Iowa jobs, boosting Iowa’s farm income, and reducing prices at the pump for Iowa consumers.  The RFS is vital to Iowa’s economic future and IRFA will oppose any effort to undermine it.”Randy Olson, CEO of the Iowa Biodiesel Board said of the bill, “The legislature’s resolution makes clear our state’s commitment to renewable fuels like biodiesel, and shows backbone to the few but vocal opponents of the RFS-2. It is gratifying to see continued support from our state’s leaders, who recognize the RFS and federal tax incentive for biodiesel as smart energy policy living up to their promise.  On behalf of the biodiesel industry in Iowa, we thank the state legislature for standing up for biodiesel.  It’s not only in our state’s best interest, but also our nation’s, and we’re proud to see Iowa once again at the forefront of leadership in this important industry.”The bill passed by a vote of 50-0 and now goes to the Iowa House for consideration.Source: Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Apr 16, 2013 read more

Indiana Corn and Soy CEO to Retire at Year’s End

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleField Prep a Priority for Southwest IndianaNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for April 2, 2019 Eric Pfeiffer Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Corn and Soy CEO to Retire at Year’s End Indiana Corn and Soy CEO to Retire at Year’s End Indiana Corn and Soy CEO to Retire at Year’s EndAt last week’s Student Soybean Innovation Competition presented by the Indiana Soybean Alliance, Indiana Corn and Soy CEO Jane Ade Stevens announced her retirement from the organization after being its leader for the past decade. Stevens recounted many things that she believes were major accomplishments for the organization during her tenure as CEO.“Having the corn and soybean checkoff programs put funding into the phenotyping center, I think, is a wonderful long-term legacy project for farmers to know that we’re working on the cutting edge of the next phase of agriculture for our grandchildren. Certainly, the glass barn at the Indiana State Fair. Talking to consumers about why we farm the way we do today is critically important.”Stevens told HAT that she always wanted to be in agriculture, but that’s not where she started out at Purdue.“That was back in the day and my father said, ‘Well girls aren’t in agriculture.’ So, I started at Purdue in home economics and I’m not a very good cook.”She then met a woman in the ag program at Purdue, went back and told her dad, and ended up graduating from Purdue with an Ag Communication degree in 1976.After that, Stevens said she, “Never looked back. I’ve worked for lots of different companies. Elanco, Farm Bureau, they’ve all been wonderful experiences, but the one thing that’s always been a thread is that I had to have a job that kept me connected directly with the farmers.”Stevens will retire at the end of the year. She says she plans to spend more time with her one and only granddaughter, wearing her soy-based flip flops down in the Virgin Islands.She told me that she’s very fortunate, and she’s very thankful for the farmers in Indiana, “For allowing me to work with them; and in particular, because I’m a woman. When I started my career, it was still pretty unusual. They have been very gracious and helped me find a career, and I hope that I have helped inspire other women to know that you can get a job in agriculture. I love my dad and he was always right, but one time he was wrong.”A search committee for her replacement is already underway with the hopes of having a name to the board of directors sometime in August.

Collier Facebook printTCU women’s equestrian is looking to finish the job following the program’s first national championship runner-up performance in the 2016 National Collegiate Equestrian Association National Championships. After losing by a single point in the championship round last season, senior Kari Hancock said this year’s mindset is for the team to come back stronger and win the NCEA National Championship.“One point is not a lot when you’re coming to the national championship,” Hancock said. “Now we have that confidence in what our team can do, we have the talent and we have the hard work.”TCU Director of Equestrian Haley Schoolfield said this year the team will take extra notice of the competition and come prepared.“Despite how accomplished our riders are, they’re very humble, quiet winners, and they work hard at their craft,” Schoolfield said.While much of the team goes home over the summer to prepare individually for the season, Hancock and junior Julia Finn stayed in Fort Worth to put in some extra work together.“It’s all about coming off a great season and knowing that we were so close and to be able to do that again,” Finn said. “We know the work that needs to be put in to get there, so we’ve just focused on hard work, trying to keep improving.”Hancock and Finn both agree that junior Carly Burnett is a rider who could “really breakout” and bring a lot of potential this season.“She ended up Most Outstanding Player at the Big 12 Championships on the flat, and that was one of her first big times competing,” Hancock said.“She’s definitely one of those people who leads by example and never stops working until she gets where she wants to be,” Finn said.One of TCU’s biggest matches this season is Jan. 26 against Baylor at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.Hancock said this match will bring the intensity that will fuel the team for more of their home matches.“We want a win against Baylor almost as much as we want to win the national championship,” Hancock said.The rest of TCU’s home matches are in Springtown, Texas.

Subhash Reddy and MR Shah observed while it set aside the Bombay High Court that had held that the Gowari community cannot be denied benefits of a Scheduled Tribe status.The High Court had held that :(1) Gond Gowari was completely extinct before 1911 and no trace of it was found either in the Maratha Country of C.P. and Berar or in the State of Madhya Pradesh prior to 1956. (2) there did not exist any tribe as Gond Gowari as on 29-10-1956, i.e. the date of its inclusion as 28th Item in Entry No.18 of the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 in relation to the State of Maharashtra and it was Gowari community alone shown as Gond Gowari, therein. The State of Maharashtra had appealed against this judgment of the High Court.The following were the issues considered by the Apex Court in appeal: Whether the High Court in the writ petition giving rise to these appeals could have entertained the claim of the caste “Gowari”, which is not included as Scheduled Tribe in the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950, that it be declared a Scheduled Tribe as “Gond Govari” which is included at Item No.18 of Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 applicable in the State of Maharashtra and further to take evidence to adjudicate such claim? Whether the ratio of the judgment of the Constitution Bench of this Court in B. Basavalingappa Vs. D. Munichinnappa, AIR 1965 SC 1269 permits the High Court to take evidence to find out whether ‘Gowari’ are ‘Gond Gowari’ and is there any conflict in ratio of judgment of Constitution Bench in B. Basavalingappa and subsequent Constitution Bench judgment of this Court in State of Maharashtra Vs. Milind, (2001) 1 SCC 4? Whether the High Court could have entered into the adjudication of the issue that ‘Gond Gowari’ which is a Scheduled Tribe mentioned in Scheduled Tribes Order, 1950, as amended up to date is no more in existence and was extinct before 1911? Whether the conclusion of the High Court in the impugned judgment that ‘Gond Gowari’ Tribe was extinct before 1911 is supported on the materials which were on record before the High Court? Whether caste ‘Gowari’ is same as ‘Gond Gowari’ included at Item No.28, Entry 18 of the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 and the High Court could have granted declaration to caste ‘Gowari’ as ‘Gond Gowari’ entitled for Scheduled Tribe certificate? Whether the High Court is correct in its view that ‘Gond Gowari’ shown as Item No.28 in Entry 18 of the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 is not a sub-tribe of Gond, hence, its validity cannot be tested on the basis of affinity test specified in Government Resolution dated 24.04.1985?The bench, referring to various judgments, including that of constitution bench, and answered the issues as follows:The High Court in the writ petition giving rise to these appeals could not have entertained the claim of a caste “Gowari” that it be declared a Scheduled Tribe as “Gond Gowari” included at Entry No.18 of the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 nor High Court could have taken evidence to adjudicate the above claimThere is no conflict in the ratio of the judgment of Constitution Bench of this Court in Basavalingappa’s case and Milind’s casThe High Court could not have entered into the issue that “Gond Gowari” which was Scheduled Tribe mentioned in Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order, 1950 as amended upto 1976 is no more in existence and became extinct 86 before 1911. The conclusion of the High Court in the impugned judgment that “Gond Gowari” Tribe had been extinct before 1911 is not supported by the materials which were on record before the High Court.The caste ‘Gowari’ is not the same as ‘Gond Gowari’. The High Court could not have granted declaration of caste ‘Gowari’ as ‘Gond Gowari’.The High Court is not correct in its view that ‘Gond Gowari’ shown as item No.28 in Entry 18 of Scheduled Tribes Order, 1950, is not a sub-tribe of ‘Gond’. The validity of caste certificate to ‘Gond Gowari’ has to be tested on the basis of affinity test as specified in the Government Resolution dated 24.04.1985.The Court noted that the High Court in the impugned judgment has heavily relied on Constitution Bench judgment of this Court in B.Basavalingappa Vs. D. Munichinnappa and Ors., AIR 1965 SC 1269. the circumstances in which this Court in B. Basavalingappa’s case approved the looking of the evidence were peculiar to that case and has no application in the facts of the present case, the bench held.Referring to State of Maharashtra Vs. Milind and Ors., (2001) 1 SCC 4, the bench observed that the power to include or exclude, amend or alter the Presidential Order is expressly and exclusively conferred on and vested with the Parliament and Courts cannot and should not extend jurisdiction to deal with the question as to whether a particular caste or sub-caste or group or part of tribe is included in any one of the entries mentioned in the Presidential Order.CASE: STATE OF MAHARASHTRA vs. KESHAO VISHWANATH SONONE [CIVIL APPEAL NO. 4096 of 2020]CORAM: Justices Ashok Bhushan, R.

Rape reported at MIT fraternity party, university police say

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(CAMBRIDGE, Mass.) — Authorities in Cambridge are investigating an alleged sexual assault on the campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology.The MIT Police Department said in a statement that they were notified that a woman was raped last weekend at a fraternity party on campus.The alleged incident took place early Saturday morning during a party at the Theta Delta Chi fraternity, according to a statement from MIT Police.The incident was reported to campus police on Wednesday evening. According to the statement, authorities said the woman first met and spoke with the alleged suspect during the party, and that they went together to the suspect’s fraternity house bedroom.In the bedroom, the woman said she “made clear that she did not want to have sex” and that the alleged suspect then raped her, according to the police statement, which said the woman reported having left the room immediately afterward.Spokespersons for the local and national chapters of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment, nor did the university’s press office.Authorities have not publicly provided a description of the alleged suspect.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
