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. Identifying the FTSE 100 stocks worth buying after the index’s recent market crash may seem to be a tough task. After all, many stocks are experiencing challenging trading conditions. And those may persist over the coming months. As a result, this may lead to weak investor sentiment that hurts their investment prospects.However, by focusing on financially-sound businesses with wide economic moats, you can take advantage of low valuations across the FTSE 100. Considering the index’s long-term recovery potential, now could be the right time to buy bargain stocks to boost your chances of retiring early.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…Economic moatsIdentifying whether a FTSE 100 company has a wide economic moat, or competitive advantage, isn’t an exact science. Much of an economic moat is subjective. However, assessing whether a business has a competitive advantage over its rivals could be a sound move. It may produce a more resilient financial performance in the current crisis. It could also be in a stronger position to capitalise on the likely economic recovery over the coming years.Therefore, focusing your capital on companies that enjoy strong customer loyalty, lower cost bases than their rivals, or that sell unique products, could be a good starting point. They may provide more attractive risk/reward opportunities over the long run.Financial stabilityOf course, surviving the present economic downturn is the biggest priority facing any business. There’s little to be gained in buying a cheap stock that’s unlikely to still be around after what now seems to be a very likely recession.As such, focusing on FTSE 100 stocks with modest debt levels and large cash positions could be a shrewd move. They may be less likely to require additional funding from their existing shareholders. They could even be in a good position to capitalise on low asset prices through acquiring their competitors.Buying undervalued companies with strong balance sheets could make a significant impact on your return prospects in the coming years. However, some industries may experience weak operating conditions for many months. As such, only the strongest businesses survive.FTSE 100 valuationsValuations across the FTSE 100 are exceptionally low at present. However, simply buying the cheapest stocks may not prove to be a sound move. Considering their capacity to grow earnings (in what could prove to be a tough operating environment for a prolonged period of time) may improve your long-term returns. For example, companies that have outperformed their peers in past recessions and economic downturns may prove to be relatively valuable.By considering the financial strength, economic moat, and overall quality of a company, it may be possible to obtain the best value opportunities in the FTSE 100. They may not necessarily be the cheapest stocks in the index after its recent crash. But they could be the most likely to boost your returns and to help you retire early.

RSF decries Olympics opening ceremony ban on Reuters

first_img Last week, Reuters released photos of a rehearsal for the opening ceremony while they were “under embargo” (banned from publication before a specific date). The London-based news agency quickly acknowledged that they were sent by mistake and asked clients not to publish them.The IOC nonetheless decided that Reuters will not get media passes for the opening ceremony on 9 February. According to the South Korean news agency Yonhap, the IOC has also decided to “enforce strong penalties on media companies and their reporters who disobey embargoes of the opening and closing ceremonies.”The IOC press office said the ban imposed on Reuters was in line with penalties imposed in previous cases of embargo violations but it declined to specify what sanctions would be imposed if other media outlets violated embargoes.“These retaliatory measures targeting all media are disproportionate and unjustified,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Journalists must respect professional rules but the right to censor assumed by the IOC is dangerous and shocking, as are the threats of reprisals against all journalists.” Help by sharing this information South KoreaUnited KingdomAsia – PacificAmericasAfricaEurope – Central AsiaMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesInternational bodiesEvents Freedom of expression The IOC decided to ban news agency Reuters from covering Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games opening ceremony (photo: Mladen Antonov/AFP).

It was introduced by Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs of India, Hardeep Singh Puri, for extending the time period available with the Government for regularization of unauthorized colonies. Background The Government had enacted the NCT of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second Act, 2011, with the following objectives: relocating slum dwellers and Jhuggi-Jhopri clusters in Delhi in accordance with the provisions of the Delhi Shelter Improvement Board Act, 2010 and the Master Plan for Delhi, 2021regularizing unauthorized colonies in Delhicreating a policy or plan for farm houses constructed beyond permissible building limits in Delhinot taking any punitive action and minimising inconvenience to the people of Delhi in case of any demolition or sealing of structures under the Master Plan for Delhi. The validity of this Act was set to expire on December 31, 2020, whereas the above objectives are yet to be achieved. Therefore, the Government seeks to extend the operation of the 2011 Act, to preclude any coercive measures such as sealing/ demolition against residents of these unauthorized colonies. The instant Bill seeks to extend the operation of the 2011 Act for a period of three years from January 1, 2021 to 31 December, 2023. [Presently, the Act is in force due to an extension granted by way of an Ordinance, promulgated on December 30, 2020.] Parliamentary Debate All 14 members who spoke during the discussion on this Bill expressed their support for protection of lives and shelter of the poor people. The members also made a unanimous request to the Government to expedite the process of regularization, and allotment of housing units to the slum dwellers. MP for the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi, Sanjay Singh, expressed concern over successive extensions granted in the years 2008, 2011, 2014, 2017, 2020. He also urged the Government to strictly implement the NCT of Delhi (Recognition of Property Rights of Residents in Unauthorized Colonies) Act, 2019. [This Act provides for recognizing the property rights of resident in unauthorized colonies by securing the rights of ownership or transfer or mortgage in favour of such residents.]Some members also expressed concern over the Supreme Court’s order for removal of nearly 48,000 slum dwellings around the 140-kilometer length of railway tracks in Delhi. However, the Government has already clarified that there will not be immediate removal of those slums. Responding to the debate, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri informed the House that all possible steps are being taken under the Prime Minister Awas Yojana. He said, as against the demand assessment of 1.12 lakh houses in Delhi, 1.11 lakh houses have already been sanctioned, 42 lakh units have been handed over to the beneficiaries and 72 lakh units are under construction. The Minister further informed the House that the issue of Migrant labours could not be resolved under the present housing scheme since they do not look for permanent homes. Therefore, the Government is signing MoUs with various State Governments for providing ‘Affordable Rental Housing Complexes’ for migrants.
