Fund managers are worried about a second wave. These are the UK shares I’d buy now

first_img Image source: Getty Images Fund managers are worried about a second wave. These are the UK shares I’d buy now Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The number-one risk top portfolio managers are concerned about right now is a second wave of the coronavirus. In July’s Bank of America fund manager survey – a monthly survey that canvasses the views of top fund managers around the world – over 50% of respondents said a second wave of Covid-19 was the biggest risk to share portfolios. Meanwhile, in August’s survey, about 40% said the biggest threat to portfolios this year was the worsening of the Covid-19 crisis.In my view, a second wave is a valid concern. Until a vaccine is launched and available to everyone, we can’t be sure that Covid-19 won’t return. A second wave is a real possibility. This could have a drastic impact on financial markets. UK shares could take a big hit.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…Now’s the time to be thinking about risk management. So, how can you protect your share portfolio from a second wave?I’d avoid these stocksThe first thing I’d do is check your exposure to UK shares that could be hit hard by a second wave. Examples include airline stocks (easyJet, IAG), cruise ship operators (Carnival), pubs (JD Wetherspoon), cinema operators (Cineworld), and gym operators (The Gym Group).If we see a second wave, it’s likely that these kinds of stocks will underperform. You don’t want to be overexposed.UK shares I’d buy for a second waveThen I’d focus on building a portfolio that contains UK shares that should do well no matter what happens with Covid-19. Specifically, I’d focus on three main types of businesses.Firstly, I’d invest in consumer goods businesses, such as Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser. These are highly reliable, dividend-paying companies that tend to hold up well when the economy is down.Reckitt Benckiser, in particular, is a great UK share to own right now, in my opinion. It owns the largest portfolio of surface disinfectant brands including Dettol and Lysol. It’s also recently launched a new professional services division to help organisations keep their customers safe. In my view, Reckitt Benckiser is a classic hedge against a second wave.I’d also buy healthcare stocks. Like consumer goods companies, healthcare companies are quite resilient. People still need medication during a recession. Two FTSE 100 healthcare companies I like are GlaxoSmithKline and Hikma Pharmaceuticals. The former specialises in vaccines and consumer healthcare products. The latter develops branded and non-branded medicines. Both UK shares are also reliable dividend payers.I’d also buy shares in UK businesses that could see higher demand for their services in a second wave. Some examples include IT specialists Computacenter and Softcat and communications specialist Gamma Communications. These companies should all benefit from the work-from-home trend. In a second wave, they should outperform.They are the three main types of UK shares I’d be buying right now. Own a fully-diversified portfolio that contains a number of different companies and your share portfolio should hold up well if we see a second wave. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Retired Air Force Veteran Finds Peace On The Appalachian Trail

first_imgAs Adele Loar reached the summit of McAfee’s Knob she proudly posed for a picture displaying a flag for No Barriers USA. The 47-year-old retired Air Force Master Sgt. is hiking 2,190 miles, the entire distance of the Appalachian Trail, to raise money for No Barriers USA. This is an organization that helped “clear up her headspace”, as she put it, after being wounded in Iraq.Loar was a Special Agent assigned to the Strategic Counterintelligence Directorate in Baghdad, Iraq. Her team was tasked with gathering information from Iraqi Civilians to determine current threats. On February 20, 2006, while in route to a military base to deliver critical information the armored vehicle, Loar struck an improvised explosive device (IED). The blast pushed the SUV through a barrier and it fell 30-feet to the road below. The explosion did extensive damage to Loar’s body.  Two team members riding with her, OSI Special Agent Daniel J. Kuhlmeier and Army Sgt. Jessie Davila, were killed at impact.Loar’s injuries included loss of sight in her right eye, damage to her shoulder and a broken jaw. She is also diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury and suffers from survivor guilt.In the years following the event she struggled to maintain, often making commitments only to give up without finishing. Loar’s PTSD and survivor guilt were affecting her life and pushing her to quit.In 2014, No Barriers Warriors introduced Loar to backpacking that provides her with therapy in the form of hiking. This organization empowers veterans with disabilities to overcome barriers and unleash their full potential. Loar joined the Warriors to Summit program of No Barriers and climbed Mount Whitney in California with her team. Mount Whitney is the highest point in the contiguous United States with a summit height of 14,505 feet.“It took me over eight years to accept and be ok with surviving the attack.  Two great men died, who had children and I really felt like the wrong person survived.  Then it dawned on me, I was doing an injustice to the fallen, by not living.”  —Adele LoarNo Barriers USA was founded in 2003. It was designed to help adults and children with disabilities bring positive change to their lives. They do this by providing transformative educational experiences with a focus on taking people out of their comfort zones and exploring the world. In 2010, No Barriers added its Soldiers to Summits program now known as, No Barriers Warriors. This program helps disabled veterans overcome their physical and mental health challenges.Loar’s victory on Mount Whitney and the program at No Barriers inspired her to live a “no barriers life”. It was this inspiration that provided the courage and faith in her abilities to meet the challenges associated with hiking the Appalachian Trail.Loar says she wanted to hike the AT as a fundraiser for No Barriers and to just to celebrate being alive.“It took me over eight years to accept and be ok with surviving the attack.  Two great men died, who had children and I really felt like the wrong person survived.  Then it dawned on me, I was doing an injustice to the fallen, by not living.”Loar began hiking the AT last year, but had to leave the trail when her brother suffered a heart attack. She returned to the AT this May to finish what she started and hopes to have the journey completed sometime in September.“The Appalachian Trail is helping me find inner peace,” she said. “In the woods, I feel happy.  No one cares I’m half blind and I trip every other step, or I can’t remember where I’ve already walked.  Everyone is supportive out here. When you get to talk with people, you become part of the trail together.  Everyone wants everyone else to make it to Katahdin.”Each year thousands of disabled veterans return home from service and find greater challenges in their day to day lives than expected. The unseen disabilities are often as crippling as the physical disabilities. Thanks to organizations such as No Barriers USA, returning disabled veterans, like Loar, find help and encouragement that provides a path for strength and healing.Loar’s unstoppable forward motion, combined with a strong military past and her kind demeanor has earned her the trail name Storm.  This twenty-one year Air Force veteran may have returned from service with scars, but she is proving to herself and her country that she is still a valuable member of society and a true soldier.last_img read more

Lewis Hamilton edges British Grand Prix after dramatic race at Silverstone

first_imgFormula One world champion Lewis Hamilton soaked up the energy of a roaring home crowd to win the British Grand Prix for the second year in a row on Sunday and forge 17 points clear of Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg.Germany’s Sebastian Vettel finished third for Ferrari, behind Rosberg, with Williams driver Felipe Massa bumped off the podium after leading for the first 20 laps following a blistering start. On a tricky afternoon of safety cars, sunshine and showers Hamilton got his choice of tyres exactly right to chalk up his 38th career win and fifth of the season — and get his hands on a ‘proper’ gold trophy.The victory in front of an estimated 140,000 fans made Hamilton only the third Briton, after Jim Clark and Nigel Mansell, to win three times at home.”I just didn’t want to drop it for them,” added the Briton, who had made a sluggish start from pole position as Massa roared through from the second row to lead into the first corner.”I am so elated you cannot imagine. I started to tear up on that last lap hoping I could do it for all the guys. Thanks for all the support.”Rosberg, who was fourth at the end of the first lap, said his team mate had made the right call at the right time in pitting for intermediates just as the rain began to come down heavily. –last_img read more

SN Q&A: Lilian Garcia on differences announcing for WWE and PFL, Michael Buffer, WrestleMania 35, podcast ‘Chasing Glory’

first_imgAnd just the caliber of fighters are so awesome to watch and then see how they’re fighting so hard to make the playoffs and go for $1 million each! $6 million being given away is incredible, it’s unheard of and I love to watch it as a fan and be part of it. I want everyone who has tuned into the PFL to keep tuning in and if you haven’t, don’t worry, you’re not behind and can really catch up.The second PFL regular season is halfway through, with the action resuming Thursday, July 11, when the women’s lightweights and men’s welterweights square off at the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. She also spoke about the first women’s main event in WrestleMania history, the WWE’s controversial shows in Saudi Arabia, AEW’s presence on the wrestling landscape, the personalities of the PFL and having guests share their backstories on her podcast “Chasing Glory.”Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearSPORTING NEWS: How has it been so far announcing fighters for PFL cards, and what are some of the similarities and differences between this and announcing in the WWE?LILIAN GARCIA: The cross between WWE and MMA really is not as far and every day it gets closer and closer. I thought there was going to be more similarities as far as the job itself. Obviously, it’s similar in a way that you’re giving these championship introductions that you get to make the fights big. But the differences are in the WWE, a lot of the time — most of the time — I would say my introduction while the Superstar was making their way to the ring and once a night, I would make the championship introduction, with the two fighters in the ring.Here (in the PFL), every single bout is that way. It’s the championship introduction that way. So, every single fight feels very, very big. In WWE, they did that in the last fight to make the last fight the main event. Here, there’s really no main event. Every single fight is that.Also, there’s way more stats to give on each fighter versus in the WWE, where the guy would weigh the same for years (laughs). It’s so funny — I remember Triple H was 255 pounds forever. Here, the guys’ weight fluctuates. There’s more detail in the PFL than there is in the WWE as far as the announcement itself.SN: What did it mean to you to have Mick Foley come support you and the PFL in attendance for PFL 2 last month?“I’ve never heard a kick that loud.” – @WWE Hall of Famer @RealMickFoley on @RashidGorets #PFL2— #PFLmma (@ProFightLeague) May 24, 2019LG: I actually invited him there and he took me up on the invitation. He was like ‘Absolutely, I’ll come, support you and see.’ He loves MMA. He had such a blast. He sat next to me the whole night. He just loved it. He loved the whole format, too — the regular season and he even kept up with it on TV because right after I did PFL 3, he texted me right away and was like ‘You were great tonight. It was so exciting.’ So, he’s following the whole thing because he loves the format of the regular season, the postseason, playoffs and championship.SN: Last year, Michael Buffer called you the best wrestling announcer of all-time. With him being the gold standard and pinnacle of ring announcing, what do his words mean to you?All great choices doubt about it though with Lilian Garcia at the top and I bet everyone named will agree she’s the BEST EVER pro wrestling ring announcer (and she always blew the house up singing the National Anthem)! #LetsGetReadyToRumble ®— Michael Buffer (@Michael_Buffer) July 17, 2018LG: Man, I had to check and make sure that that was his legit account because at first I just thought it was a fan having fun with me or something. But when I saw it was his legit account, I was blown away that out of the blue he would say such nice things about me, whether it was announcing and then he said really nice things about me singing the national anthem. And then he did it again this year.What was the craziest thing was that when the PFL reached out to me and when they were interviewing me, he did it again. He mentioned me and so, it was perfect timing because the PFL is now like ‘We want her! This is a good idea!’ And boom, there’s this Michael Buffer endorsement.I really want to meet him. I want to meet him, shake his hand, thank him for those nice compliments. I’ve always looked up to Buffer. I think he’s just an icon in the business, so to get words from him, it feels really good.SN: What are some memories with the WWE that are permanently etched in your mind?LG: Well, WrestleMania, definitely. Whether I was introducing some of these amazing Superstars to the ring and seeing them work all year long to be on the WrestleMania card was just … that’s etched in my (mind) because I saw their journey for an entire year and then, getting to see they’re there.Also, singing the most times at WrestleMania and holding that record was amazing.But I think above all, the moment that’s really etched in my mind is singing after 9/11 because it was so unexpected, something so tragic and for Vince to say ‘the show is going to go on, we’re going to do this’ and everyone else (other sports) are canceling.So, to have me do the national anthem at the beginning of the show and see all those faces, the posters that everybody was holding and the flags and the need that everybody had — from all the Superstars lining up on the ramp — the need that everybody had to try to make sense of it and try to come to heal and for our national anthem could do that or be the first step toward that and me that person to do that as an army brat … man. That … meant … everything.SN: How special was it for you to see Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair being the first women to close out WrestleMania as the main event of WrestleMania 35 this past April?LG: I was so excited that I got to be at WrestleMania, announcing the Women’s Battle Royal for the second year in a row, which was awesome. So, when Becky and Charlotte and Ronda went to the ring, I snuck out there and watched it from the corner, so that I could really experience all of the fans and the music and the whole energy of it that night. I had tears streaming down my face because what an amazing feat at 35 years to finally have that moment of (women) main-eventing WrestleMania. I thought it was incredible that they got that.SN: WWE received plenty of backlash for its shows in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. What was your take on that and did you speak to any of your WWE colleagues about it?LG: I didn’t. Things take time and it’s pretty spectacular that Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss got to go to Abu Dhabi and there was a whole chant of “This is hope.” That’s a start, so hopefully soon, we’ll see that. Look how long it took for women to main-event WrestleMania and that was a big step in the right direction. It’s going to take time with Saudi Arabia, but hopefully every year, we can get closer and closer.SN: All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is exploding in popularity and making wrestling that much bigger and exciting as a whole. What do you think about WWE’s newest competition?LG: Look, I think any time you have competition, it’s good for everybody. Look at what it did for WCW and WWE. Competition brings more attention, it makes people even better and work even harder all the way around — from the Superstars to the writers to everybody. Competition is good in life. And I think it’s great because it gives a platform for more Superstars to even work. I’m all for competition and Vince McMahon himself has said he’s always up for competition, so no one is complaining.SN: The PFL is so new, but its presence is already strong with the ESPN partnership. In WWE, Superstars’ personalities and personas are as important as the wrestling. We’ve seen the MMA action in the PFL cage, but can you tell us a bit about the personalities that we’re going to see event to event?LG: I was really curious going into this because one of the things I’ve loved about ‘Chasing Glory,’ my podcast, and interviewing the Superstars is getting to know their story. I know them from backstage. ‘Chasing Glory’ has given me the perspective of even knowing them more from their backstory.I was thinking to myself, ‘I can’t wait to go and meet some of these MMA fighters who are really, really fierce and it’s serious competition.’ With WWE, even though it’s competition, it’s still entertainment, so there’s still that fun aspect to it. I was like, ‘I wonder how MMA fighters are with their personalities. Do they walk around just like Grrrr?’ (Laughs) ‘Or do they have personalities?’ I said, ‘I bet I’m going to be surprised just as I was with WWE Superstars.’ And sure enough, getting to talk to them, I was blown away. They’re just like everybody else. They love what they do. They have such big personalities.I got to hang out with Sarah Kaufman and we were waiting for our flight for hours and I got to know her a little better. I’m like ‘You’re really cool.’ The more I get to be around them, the more I’m loving them as people and they’re very entertaining in their own way.SN: With the podcast, how gratifying has it been to be able to dig into your guests’ backstories?LG: That’s what has blown me away — getting the backstories, especially with people who I’ve worked with for so many years and then finding out what they struggled with early on, how they grew up, any tragedies that happened in their life, the good things that have happened to them, how they got their opportunities in the WWE. I literally have been blown away from their stories. When they’re finished, I feel even closer to them and they say the same thing to me.I interviewed Sean O’Connell — he won the whole thing (PFL light heavyweight championship) last year.(Monday), I was backstage at ‘Monday Night Raw’ and all the people that I’ve interviewed already saw me and were like ‘Lil!’ We have this even bigger connection because of the interviews.SN: With all your years ring announcing for WWE, how much fun has this experience announcing for PFL been thus far?LG: I am absolutely having a blast. I have been welcomed by open arms from everyone in the organization and they have helped me as well because they knew that it was similar, but different. Just having that much support and confidence from the organization has allowed me not to be so scared to even mess up or anything like that. When you don’t have that pressure, you could go out and have a good time.I love the sport. I’ve always loved combat sports, which is why I love wrestling. My dad used to box in the army. There’s something about combat sports that I have a lot of respect for, so the fact that I get to do this, I’m enjoying it, I’m enjoying the journey.I want people to stay tuned for the second half of the regular season. We’re in Atlantic City for the PFL 4, 5 and 6. It’s just going to be so exciting. We’ve had some major moments with a 10-second stoppage, making a record. Lilian Garcia’s voice resonates with every wrestling fan as the longtime ring announcer of the WWE. So, it might take some time for the WWE Universe to get used to seeing her in the mixed martial arts cage and announcing combatants for the Professional Fighters League. But she’s making the transition to her new gig look easy.Sporting News caught up with Garcia — who spent 15 years as the full-time ring announcer for WWE and still works part-time during special events — as she spoke about the similarities between announcing for the WWE and PFL, Michael Buffer calling her the greatest wrestling announcer of all time and her best WWE memory.last_img read more

Optimism and trepidation: Power brokers weigh in on 2020 college football season opening

first_imgHere’s a snapshot of where college football is on starting the 2020 season on time or close to it. Three perspectives, from two university presidents and a conference commissioner. The comments ranged from eagerness to guarded optimism to trepidation.Pretty much sums up where a lot of the nation is regarding this coronavirus mess, eh? Item 3: What happens when the virus returns?Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby won’t guarantee on an on-time start, and he’s also concerned about the end of the season when infections may spike again. (Per Sirius Big 12 Radio, via the Dallas Morning News)”We will be very, very lucky to start on Labor Day weekend and get through the football season without disruptions. We will be very lucky to get through the postseason and the basketball season without disruptions.”That’s why Bowlsby has suggested a split fall/spring football season. Item 1: Almost time to get goingIowa president Bruce Harreld told the university’s Board of Regents on Thursday that the team is slated to return to practice June 1, when a moratorium on team-related activities is scheduled to be lifted. Harreld said Big Ten schools want players to have six to eight weeks of practice to lower injury risk. (Per Scott Dochterman of The Athletic)”We missed spring practice. And I guess to answer your question, if we got to the worst of the worst, would we let the players play with no fans? I don’t know. Because if we’re at that stage with this virus, we’d have to do a lot of testing of the individual players. And I’m not going to go yes or no on that. I’m going to refer to the experts. But right now, June 1 is the date, we’re going to get back to practice. And here we go.”DeCOURCY: Missouri’s plan to reopen should give fans hopeItem 2: See you in September . . . maybe Alabama system president Stuart Bell says students could be able to return to campus as early as July, which means . . . get ready for games at Bryant-Denny? (Per  WIAT-TV in Birmingham, Ala.)”(C)ertainly our plan is that we will have a football season and fans will be a part of it in our stadium. So we are working on that and our first games are in September. So we have time and we also know we have work to do.”last_img read more

Evergreen is First College in Washington to Join the National Post-Landfill…

first_imgSubmitted by The Evergreen State CollegeJune marks the end of the school year and beginning of summer break for students of all ages, but many college students may change residences during that time, vacating dorms and apartments for family homes near and far.As they depart, the question of where to leave their “stuff” can plague students, parents and on-campus residence staff. Storage is not always feasible, or even practical for the odd lamp, end table, old TV, appliance or extra clothing and many student possessions end up in landfills.This year, in conjunction with Post Landfill Action Network (PLAN), Residential and Dining Services (RAD) at The Evergreen State College will host “The Gathering,” which encourages students to drop off items that they are not taking home and can’t store. Items will be collected from Friday, June 5, to Saturday, June 13 and will either be available for sale next term or donated to such nonprofits as Egyhop and Interfaith Works Overnight Shelter. Proceeds of sale items go directly to residence hall student programming at Evergreen.The national PLAN is composed of college students and recent graduates (no one on staff finished college before 2012), guided by a professional caliber Board of Directors. As the PLAN website states, “Waste on college campuses balloons at the end of each academic year. Thousands of reusable or recyclable items, including electronics containing carcinogens like lead and mercury, were sent to landfills.” As one example, the University of New Hampshire generated 125 tons of waste when students moved out in the spring, up from the typical 25 tons of trash in each of the other months.In 2011, a group of undergraduates at the University of New Hampshire noticed dumpsters overflowing with reusable materials after spring move-out. Then, in the fall, they watched as students moving back to campus bought many of the same items new at big box stores. To end the cycle of waste, the students created a program called Trash 2 Treasure, which eventually blossomed into the current national student-led PLAN movement.Evergreen is one of three colleges on the West Coast and the only one in Washington to participate in the event. The other two West Coast colleges are Pitzer and Marymount in California.According to RAD Director, Sharon Goodman, Evergreen was a perfect fit to test the program in the Northwest. “We have a long history of embracing sustainable practices at Evergreen,” said Goodman. “Our students are on board with the idea and spearheading the project. It is the same message many of them are getting in their classes and programs on economics and the environment.” Facebook60Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Chrome 72 Beta releases with public class fields user activation and more

first_imgGoogle yesterday released Chrome 72 Beta for Android, Chrome OS, Linux, macOS, and Windows. This version comes with support for public class fields, a user activation query API, and more. Public class fields You can now declare public class fields in scripts, which can be either initialized or uninitialized. To implement public class fields, you need to declare them inside a class declaration but outside of any member functions. Support for private class fields will be added in the future releases. User activation query API Chrome 72 Beta comes with user activation query API, using which you can check whether there has been a user activation. This is introduced to avoid annoying web page behaviors such as autoplay. Additionally, it enables embedded iframes to examine postMessage() calls to determine whether they occurred within the context of a user activation. Well-formed JSON.stringify Previously, JSON.stringify used to return ill-formed Unicode strings if the input had any lone surrogates. To solve this, well-formed JSON.stringify outputs escape sequences for lone surrogates, making its output valid Unicode and representable in UTF-8. What are the modules removed? Popups during page unload is not allowed: Pages will not use to open a new page during unloading anymore. HTTP-Based Public Key Pinning (HPKP) is removed: HPKP was introduced to allow websites to send an HTTP header that pins one or more of the public keys present in the site’s certificate chain. But it has seen very low adoption and can also create risks of denial of service and hostile pinning. Rendering FTP resources deprecated: Rendering resources from FTP servers is now not allowed. Directory listings will still be generated, but any non-directory listing will be downloaded rather than rendered in the browser. Along with these updates, TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are deprecated and removal is expected in Chrome 81. Read the detailed list of updates on Chromium’s blog.
