Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Paul Summers In addition to the tragic loss of life, the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on businesses around the world. Like most things, however, there have been exceptions to the rule. Among those who’ve seen a rise in demand for its services is online trading specialist IG Group (LSE: IGG). Today’s update for the three months to 29 February had a tone similar to those recently released by industry peers CMC Markets and Plus 500. 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…Top performerAs expected, the company has seen a “significant increase” in clients using its platform. The number of active traders on its books has soared 21% over the period to 101,700. The last week of the quarter was particularly busy, thanks to the “exceptionally high” volatility, as the world grasped the seriousness of the coronavirus outbreak. Given this, it’s no surprise IG’s revenue has shot up. Just under £140m was generated over the period, representing a 29% increase compared to the same quarter a year ago.To put this in context, this was the company’s best quarterly performance since new regulations giving more protection to retail clients were introduced in Europe in 2018. It was also the third-best quarterly performance in IG’s entire history!Having been a holder of the stock for a while, I welcome these numbers with open arms. I’m also encouraged by the possibility things might get even better in the fourth quarter. This morning, the company revealed it had already brought in £52m in revenue over the first 12 trading days of the period. So, are the shares a buy?Despite falling heavily in early trading, IG’s share price has still fared better than most over the last month. A drop of 20% since mid-February is far easier to accept compared to stock performances in the travel, retail, oil and banking sectors.Clearly, further falls can’t be ruled out. Moreover, a full recovery in the share price back to levels seen towards the end of 2018 will take time. With IG down to return 43.2p per share to its owners in the current year, I think those holding will receive sufficient compensation for being patient. As it stands, this equates to a yield of 7.7%.Right now, I’m assuming no cuts to this payout are on the horizon. That said, it’s important to know that Australia will soon follow Europe and introduce new regulations on retail clients. On this issue, IG merely said its actions to mitigate the impact on business were “progressing as planned“. It added that no new information on when rules would be introduced had been received. Before markets opened this morning, IG’s stock traded on 15 times forecast earnings. Quite how much faith you place in this and the valuation of any other company at the current time is another thing entirely.No one, including IG, has any clue how long the current trading environment will last. Predicting revenue going forward is, therefore, tricky. Nevertheless, I maintain this is a quality stock to hold for the long term. With its counter-cyclical qualities, strong balance sheet, and those aforementioned juicy dividends, I’m likely to buy more of the stock in the current crisis.
“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 5th August, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares While dividends have been cut among many UK shares over recent months, a number of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks continue to offer attractive passive income prospects. Buying them now while they offer good value for money could produce impressive long-term returns, as well as an attractive income opportunity.With interest rates set to remain low in the coming years, dividend stocks could become increasingly popular among investors. As such, now could be the right time to invest £5k, or any other amount, in a diverse range of shares while they trade at bargain prices. They could help to bring your retirement date a step closer.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…Cheap UK sharesWith the stock market having experienced a major market crash in recent months, a number of UK shares trade below their historic averages. Certainly, they may experience challenging operating conditions in the coming months. However, in many cases, they appear to have the financial strength to overcome short-term risks. That means they can then benefit from a long-term economic recovery.As such, buying bargain FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks today could produce impressive returns over the coming years. Investor sentiment and the performance of the economy have always drastically improved following previous declines. The challenges facing investors may be unprecedented in 2020. But buying undervalued UK shares now and holding them for the long run could produce high returns in a likely market recovery.Dividend stocksDividend stocks could be among the best-performing UK shares in the coming years. As mentioned, a number of companies have postponed or cut their dividends in recent months in response to an uncertain operating outlook. Therefore, there’s less choice for income investors. This may mean those businesses able to maintain, and even grow, their dividend payouts may become very in-demand among investors. This may push their valuations higher, and lead to strong total returns.As well as their capital growth potential, dividend stocks clearly offer a relatively high income investing opportunity. With interest rates now at historic lows (and set to remain there for some time) investors who’d normally buy other income-producing assets, such as bonds, may focus their capital on dividend stocks. This may push demand for dividend shares even higher, which could lead to rising prices for UK shares.DiversificationWhile there’s less choice for investors who are seeking to generate an income from UK shares than there was at the start of the year, it’s still possible to build a diverse portfolio of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 dividend stocks. Through diversifying across multiple sectors and companies that operate in a range of countries, you can obtain a resilient income that could help to boost your portfolio’s prospects. It may even bring your retirement date a step closer. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Donor2Deed is a new digital service that uses Google Earth and Maps technology to help charities connect even more effectively with their supporters by giving donors a better sense of the impact of their donation on projects.Donors can explore projects around the world, view the latest field updates, images, text and video content, and then make an online donation, even choosing which budget line to donate to. They stay connected to projects via email, social networks and mobile, receiving project updates direct from the field.Founder and CEO of Donor2Deed, Olivia Cosgrove, has spent 10 years working in the international voluntary sector for organisations working in Rwanda, Southern Africa, Haiti and south Asia.“Developing the Donor2Deed platform has given me a unique perspective from both ‘sides of the fence’”, she said, “as a donor wanting to see the impact that I am making; and on the ground – maximising the use of funds in an emergency, making a difference to people’s lives.“For example, in Kosovo I led a shelter team that became the number one shelter team to respond to the emergency in 1999 after the war. We were the only team to complete its target of 700 homes prior to the Balkan winter setting in. One of the reasons we achieved this was because the public gave generously . This allowed us to get out and buy wood ahead of other agencies: we could respond quicker as we did not have to wait for large international donors to sign contracts that covered the cost of wood.“The impact of their donations was immense and I had no way to communicate that to them. Imagine how they would have felt if I could have told them the real difference that they made”.Cosgrove says that Donor2Deed “integrates with charity donor content management systems allowing them to gather donor details and connect with them further”.The Dublin Simon Community was one of the first to use Donor2Deed and recovered 75% of its investment in three weeks, raising over €2,750 in their first week (December 2009). The most popular donation over six months was €250 for a mattress, and they secured two donations over €1,000 .They told Donor2Deed:Donor2Deed is also in use by The Salvation Army International Emergency Services Department, and has been purchased by some US nonprofits.Donor2Deed includes a suite of supporting tools including Report2Donor™ and CashTrail®, financial tools that help charities report their projects’ progress to institutional and individual donors and manage their budgets and expenditure.www.donor2deed.com Donor2Deed to use Google Earth and Maps to connect donors with projects AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis

ABC News(AUSTIN, Texas) — In what could yield major clues in the hunt for a serial bomber terrorizing Austin, Texas, investigators have obtained a package they suspect was sent by the same individual who mailed a package bomb that exploded at a FedEx facility near San Antonio this morning, officials said.The package, which is intact, was discovered by FedEx workers, the company said in a statement released several hours after one worker was injured in an explosion at the FedEx facility in the San Antonio suburb of Schertz.“We have also confirmed that the individual responsible also shipped a second package that has now been secured and turned over to law enforcement,” FedEx said in its statement but did not reveal which of its facilities the package was discovered in.“We have provided law enforcement responsible for this investigation extensive evidence related to these packages and the individual that shipped them collected from our advanced technology security systems,” the company said. “The safety and security measures in place across the FedEx networks are designed to protect the safety of our people, customers and communities, and to assist law enforcement as appropriate.”Investigators have not said whether the package handed over by FedEx contains explosives.The string of explosions in Austin, which left two dead and four injured, has the city on edge and sparked hundreds of law enforcement to descend on the area.The FBI has discovered a link between packages involved in the Austin bombings and a mail delivery office at a strip mall in the neighboring city of Sunset Valley. Police cordoned off the area and were combing through the office on Tuesday.Austin police were also investigating a suspicious package found at 6:19 a.m. Tuesday at a FedEx Ground facility near the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.In his first public comments on the Texas bombings, which started March 2, President Donald Trump said the federal government is doing everything it can think of to catch the culprits.“These are sick people and we need to find them immediately,” Trump told reporters at the White House.Tuesday’s explosion in the San Antonio suburb of Schertz, Texas, occurred about 12:45 a.m. at a FedEx facility. About 65 miles away, two men were injured Sunday night in the fourth bombing in 17 days to rock the Texas capital.Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told the Austin City Council this morning that the package that exploded in Schertz originated at a facility in Austin that has been closed.“A package had been traveling along an automated conveyor when it exploded,” Schertz Police Chief Michael Hanson said at a news conference outside the Schertz FexEx facility this morning.Hanson said the injured worker complained of “ringing in her ears,” was treated at the scene and released.Earlier Tuesday, police told ABC San Antonio affiliate KSAT-TV that the medium-sized box that exploded contained nails and metal shrapnel.Jim McClusky, a spokesman for FedEx, confirmed in a statement to ABC News that “a single package exploded” and that one worker was treated for minor injuries.There were 75 people in the building at the time of the explosion, authorities said.“This is a fluid investigation and we want the general public to know their safety is our No. 1 priority,” said Frank Ortega, ATF acting assistant special agent in charge.He said the ATF’s National Response Team and bomb-sniffing dogs were searching the facility for other possible explosives.Neither Ortega or FBI assistant special agent James Smith, who both spoke at the news conference, would say if investigators definitively believe the explosion is connected to the Austin bombings.Manley said investigators from his department, the FBI and the ATF were working to determine whether the explosive is the work of a serial bomber or bombers who have terrorized Austin since the beginning of the month.He said it was too early to say if the explosive package in Schertz has any connection to the bombs that have gone off in Austin, including that most recent one on Sunday night that was triggered by a tripwire and injured two men.“We’ve seen an evolution in the type of devices, the one in Schertz involves a delivery service. What we are seeing here is unprecedented,” Manley told the city council.He cautioned residents to pay close attention to any suspicious device whether it be a package, a bag, a backpack “or anything that looks out of place” and advised residents to immediately call 911 and stay clear of the suspicious items.Manley said Monday at a news conference on the Austin explosions, “clearly we are dealing with a serial bomber.”Austin residents have been on edge for a month after the series of bombings. The first three bombings were packages, apparently hand-delivered and left on porches of homes before exploding when picked up by residents, police said.The fourth explosion took place Sunday night. Two men, ages 22 and 23, were injured in that blast, which was caused by a device using a tripwire on a sidewalk in the Travis Country neighborhood of Austin.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Written by May 16, 2019 /Sports News – National Stephen Curry calls playing against his brother ‘such a mixed feeling’ Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEzra Shaw/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — NBA star Stephen Curry opened up about what it’s like to play against his younger brother, Seth Curry, in the high-stakes Western Conference Finals this year, telling ESPN, “I can’t turn off that human nature, in that moment, to root for him, even if I know it will hurt me.”The Golden State Warriors point guard said he initially looked forward to facing off against his brother, a guard for the Portland Trail Blazers, on the court, saying he was cheering for him during Sunday night’s Game 7 of the second round in the Western Conference playoffs.“My whole family obviously rooting for the Blazers, for them to advance and have the Curry-Curry battle in the Western Conference Finals, and it came to be,” Stephen Curry told ESPN in an interview that aired on ABC News’ Good Morning America Thursday. “I was a part of the Portland faithful for a little bit.”Having their two sons compete against each other put parents Dell and Sonya Curry in an uncertain position, and the couple delighted social media Tuesday night when they showed up to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals each wearing a split jersey with one son’s team on the front and the other’s on the back.“They flipped a coin,” to decide which son’s jersey to wear, Stephen Curry told ESPN.“And then they both copped out and got the half and half jerseys because I know they were both so invested in both of us,” he added, quipping that he got “so confused” at times.“I normally look up at the family section with my wife sitting up there, my parents, my sister, when something good happens,” he said.On Tuesday night, however, Stephen Curry said he looked up to see his mom clapping, “but all I see is straight Portland across her jersey.”“So I yelled up something to her,” he said. “I was like, ‘Who you with?’”After competing against each other in Game 2 on Thursday night in Oakland, the Curry brothers will face-off again for Game 3 on Seth Curry’s home turf in Portland.“I know when we go to Portland it will be even crazier, cause they’ll be feeding off their home crowd energy,” Stephen Curry said. “I don’t know if I’ll be able to look over there.”Still, the two-time NBA MVP said he can’t help but feel happy for his younger brother’s successes, even when he’s playing against him on the court.“When I was guarding him yesterday, he had a corner three in front of our bench, and it’s such a mixed feeling,” he said. “I can’t really turn it off to be honest, I’m like, ‘Oh, I’ll be OK if he makes this one, I’m still gonna contest really hard because it looks good on film, but I might be OK with him making it.’”“I can’t turn off that human nature in that moment to root for him, even though if I know that it will hurt me if he’s playing well,” Stephen Curry added.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
