UK budget 2021: 10 stocks that could rally next

first_img 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. 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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The UK budget will be released tomorrow. Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak’s second budget is widely expected to support the struggling UK economy.But I think some sectors of the economy could benefit more than others. FTSE 100 stocks from these sectors will be positively impacted, in my view.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…Stamp duty waiver to benefit FTSE 100 property stocksI am looking out for what happens next with the stamp duty waiver. It has been a huge success, as is evident in record house price numbers.According to news reports, the waiver will continue until the end of June. It was earlier supposed to end on 31 March. An extension could give a fillip to real estate companies. FTSE 100 companies like Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon, Barratt Developments, and Berkeley Group Holdings would benefit from this.Real estate stocks were already some of the biggest gainers in yesterday’s trading session, suggesting that this news may already be baked into their prices. They may not rally tomorrow, but the policy itself could strengthen their finances by increasing demand. This could be good for their share prices over time, too. UK budget to give a push to green energyA green bond is also expected from the UK budget tomorrow, which will allow fund-raising for renewable energy and clean transport options. I think this can be a positive for FTSE 100 companies already associated with the green industry. One of them is Johnson Matthey, which among other things, produces chemicals used in electric vehicle (EV) cells. Another one is the FTSE 100 multi-commodity miner Rio Tinto, which is now looking to produce lithium. I have written about both in this context in greater detail here.Anglo American (AAL), another FTSE 100 miner is also likely to benefit from the UK budget because of this. Platinum group metals are an important segment for AAL, and are used in hydrogen-powered EV cells.Consumer spending likely to sustainMore generally, the UK budget will support the economy to ensure that it does not slump post- lockdown easing at the end of June. This could mean continuation of the furlough scheme and increased universal credit allowance. I think this could hold up consumer demand. Positive impacts on FTSE 100 stocks like Diageo, JD Sports Fashion, and NEXT may be felt accordingly. NEXT could benefit most among these, with almost 90% of its business sourced from the UK. The takeawayAs an end note, I think it is important to underline that the UK budget cannot be the only reason to buy any particular stocks. I think these are worthy stocks in themselves, and they have proven their merit over time. But they also have risks associated with stock investing. Unknown outcomes for the economy post-lockdown is a big one among them. But the UK budget can give them a nudge in the direction of further growth. It is a good time to decide whether or not to buy these shares. I think it could be.

Donors trust charities, non-donors far less, says FRSB research

first_img  55 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis People who give to charity are much more likely to trust charities than those who do not give. This was confirmed by research commissioned by the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB).Trust and charitable givingThe survey by TSN of 1,062 people in the UK found that 78% of donors agree with the statement that ‘giving to charity is the best way of supporting good causes’. In addition, when asked if they agreed with the statement ‘I trust charities’, only one third of non-donors agreed and just 26% agreed that ‘charities use donations wisely’.The clear link between trust and charitable giving was also reflected in a geographical breakdown of the results. Trust is significantly higher in Scotland, where giving is more prevalent, than in Wales where giving is comparatively less prevalent.Trust in charities is highThe large majority (84%) of donors are confident that the charities they support make a difference; 82% say that they trust the charities they give to. Eighty per cent believe that charities value their donations. Advertisement Tagged with: Fundraising Standards Board Individual giving Research / statistics Acceptance of need to invest in fundraisingThe research found that there was widespread public recognition of the need for charities to invest in fundraising. Seven in ten donors and half of non-donors (49%) agreed that charities had to do this to secure the future of the services they provide.Just over half (54%) of donors agreed that charities use the most effective means of fundraising compared to 31% of non-donors.However, both donors and non-donors are not confident that charities are effective in their expenditure. Only 19% of non-donors agreed with the statement that charities do not spend too much money on fundraising and administration.The surveyThe study was conducted in Great Britain via TNS OnLineBus, an Internet omnibus survey. A sample of 1,062 GB adults aged 16-64 were interviewed. Interviewing was conducted by CAWI over the Internet from 23 – 27 February 2012.

Football Game Preview: Pasadena Area Powers Clash Tonight; Muir and La Salle Set for Kickoff

first_img Subscribe Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Friday:Muir (2-0) at La Salle (2-1) at 7The Mustangs and Lancers highly anticipated match up is arguably the game of the week for Pasadena-area football fans.Muir is coming off a bye week after a victory in Las Vegas, and La Salle is looking to bounce back from a 35-21 setback from Bishop Diego of Santa Barbara last Friday.Bishop Diego’s John Harris rushed for 255 yards and had three TD’s, and in comes Muir’s Jordan Baker, who La Salle coach Russell Gordon calls “a tank.”“We’re going to need to contain their athleticism and speed,” Gordon said. “They find a way to get the ball to athletes in space. We’re going to need to stop the run and make them try and beat us in the air.”Muir receiver Elijah Blades is committed to the University of Florida, and is also someone the Lancers defense will have to key heavily on to walk out of Friday with a win.Amon Milliner will continue to bear the weight of the La Salle offense. The senior running back is coming off a monster game in which he ran for 262 yards and three TD’s.Milliner has rushed for over 100 yards per game in all three contests thus far.He is averaging 181 yards and has scored 7 TD’s.Jake Caan is going to have to manage the offense with very little room for error.Caan is 29 of 48 for 434 yards, five touchdowns and one interception so far.“I am going to need Jake to run our offense efficiently and get the ball to No. 5 (Milliner),” Gordon said. “We know it’s really important to not fall behind like last week. They’re 2-0 for a reason.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Reports: HMS Ocean offered for sale to Brazilian Navy

first_img The UK Ministry of Defence has offered amphibious assault ship HMS Ocean for sale to the Brazilian Navy, the media in the South American country wrote.The UK Defence Journal first noted the reports which said the price of the helicopter carrier was deemed “reasonable” by Brazilian officials.Following up on the reports, the publication contacted persons currently aboard HMS Ocean and received a confirmation that rumors of sale do exist while there were no further talks on which navy that could be.HMS Ocean is the current fleet flagship of the Royal Navy and is set to be decommissioned in 2018, after the Royal Navy’s first Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier enters service.Commissioned in October 1995, the 202-meter long HMS Ocean replaced HMS Bulwark as fleet flagship in June 2015. In her role as a helicopter carrier and amphibious assault ship, Ocean is designed to deliver troops by helicopter or by landing craft.The rumors follow a recent Brazilian Navy decision to decommission their only aircraft carrier BNS Sao Paulo (A 12) after it was determined that cost of returning the aircraft carrier to an operational status was too high.After several attempts to improve the ship’s operational capacity failed in previous years, the navy reasoned that a modernization procedure would necessitate heavy investment without a guarantee of operational improvement.BNS Sao Paulo, formerly known as Clemencau-class FS Foch, was a conventionally-powered aircraft carrier built for the French Navy in 1959. By acquiring the ship in 2000, Brazil became the only country in South America to operate an aircraft carrier.
