“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” With the deadline approaching for this year’s ISA allowance, I’m on the hunt for some of the best –and cheapest — UK shares to buy.Here are four top British stocks on my Stocks and Shares ISA shopping list today.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…An intoxicating UK shareBroker forecasts for a UK share can be blown off course if trading conditions worsen. And for the likes of Stock Spirits Group the chances of this happening are a real possibility. If global Covid-19 cases continue rising and mass lockdowns stay in place, drinks sales at bars and restaurants will inevitably take a whack. But based on current estimates, I still think the beverages giant is too cheap to miss.City analysts reckon earnings here will more than double in 2021, leaving Stock Spirits trading on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. Any reading below 1 can suggest that a stock is being undervalued. I particularly like this UK share as I think its focus on fast-growing European emerging markets should deliver long-term earnings growth.7%+ dividend yieldsAn environment of low interest rates threatens the profitability of banks in the short-to-medium term. This hits profits as it reduces the difference between what they get from borrowers and offer to savers and Bank of Georgia isn’t exempt. But I’d still invest as I expect foreign investment in its country to balloon again once the Covid-19 crisis passes. Huge capital inflows have made the Eurasian nation one of the fastest-growing economies in the region over the past couple of decades.At today’s prices, Bank of Georgia offers good value for money. City analysts think annual earnings will rise around three-quarters year on year in 2021, leaving it with a forward PEG ratio of just 0.1. The UK banking share sports a gigantic 7.4% dividend yield too.A FTSE 100 firecrackerI think Vodafone Group is another great all-round share for value investors. City brokers reckon annual earnings here will rise by more than 30% in the next two fiscal years. This leaves the FTSE 100 firm dealing on a forward PEG multiple of 0.6. And the telecoms titan carries big dividend yields of 6.5% through the medium term.I don’t think things will all be plain sailing for Vodafone though. The problem of rising competition and tough economic conditions in Europe could derail earnings estimates. Yet I’d still buy this UK share on its emerging markets exposure and its excellent progress on 5G.Good to goI believe that Bakkavor Group’s another tasty value stock at current prices. Not only does the food-to-go manufacturer boast a near-5% forward dividend yield. The City thinks annual profits here will rise 15% in 2021, resulting in a rock-bottom PEG ratio of 0.7.The rise of homeworking following the Covid-19 crisis will inevitably affect growth rates across the food-to-go sector. The number of office workers and commuters seeking a quick bite looks set to fall. But I think that this UK food share should still have the strength to thrive, helped by steps to improve its footprint in the fast-growing US and Chinese markets. It recently opened three new factories in its Asian territory. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

As I write on Thursday morning, it looks like another down day for the UK stock market. At its morning low of 6,823.6 points, the FTSE 100 index was down almost 180 points (2.5%). Currently, it hovers around 6,855 points, down 2.1% since Wednesday’s close. Checking the Footsie’s constituents, I see only seven stocks in positive territory — and all up by 1% or less. Meanwhile, the other 94 FTSE 100 members are all in the red, with the five biggest fallers down between 5% and 8%. Furthermore, this latest slide comes on top of a similar-sized setback on Tuesday and a modest decline on Monday. So, it’s been a bad week so far for UK shareholders, right? Not exactly, because it very much depends on investors’ personal situations.Warren Buffett loves buying burgersAfter 35 years of investing in shares, the most important lesson I’ve learnt is perhaps the simplest. When, say, FTSE 100 share prices go down, should I be worried or pleased? The answer depends on whether I am a net buyer or a net seller of stocks. In 1997, billionaire investment guru Warren Buffett asked his Berkshire Hathaway investors this clever question: “If you plan to eat hamburgers throughout your life and are not a cattle producer, should you wish for higher or lower prices for beef?”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…In other words, if I want to keep buying into good companies, then I ought to be delighted when share prices fall. However, what if I am a much older investor seeking to reduce risk by selling shares for safer assets? Then I should be concerned at falling prices, because I’m getting less bang for my seller’s buck. At the age of 53, I’m still at the ‘accumulation’ stage of my life. In other words, my retirement remains some way off. Thus, as I’m still earning sufficient income, I’m still happy to take ‘equity risk’ by buying cheap UK shares. And I still see some real bargains lurking in the FTSE 100 today.‘Bottom fishing’ in the FTSE 100Fairly often, I will go ‘bottom fishing’ in the FTSE 100, looking for shares in recent decline. But I’m not looking for bombed-out shares that have plunged in value. When bargain-hunting, I remember these wise words from Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett’s mentor: “A stock is not just a ticker symbol or an electronic blip; it is an ownership interest in an actual business, with an underlying value that does not depend on its share price.”Therefore, when I go looking for cheap FTSE 100 stocks, what I’m actually doing is looking for shares in good companies at fair prices. I’m not looking to catch so-called falling knives. I’m simply interested in buying into (or increasing my existing stakes in) businesses I’d be happy to own. At the same time, I hope to be, in the words of Ben Graham again, “an intelligent investor…who sells to optimists and buys from pessimists”.To sum up, I’m not at all worried that the FTSE 100 is down nearly 4% since Friday’s close. I’m also unconcerned that the S&P 500 index has dipped by almost 3% this week. As a rational investor with a decent investment horizon, I’ll keeping buying into good businesses in market dips. Only later on, after I retire, will I use the passive income from these investments to keep me going in my old age!

The call came as Bono launched the new American Express RED card at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.Describing himself and the corporate world as ‘fat cats,’ Bono said that the current model of philanthropy was not adequate to meet the challenge of AIDS as he endorsed a brand called RED which businesses can use to sell products contributing a share of the profits to the Fund. The products, which include an American Express card, Converse sneakers, Gap T-shirts and Giorgio Armani sunglasses, will not sell at a premium but the companies involved are confident they will make a profit none the less.Tom Arnold of Concern backed Bono’s call and urged companies in Ireland to take up the model of corporate social responsbility.

News AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa August 9, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Officials “find” missing case-file Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the sudden “discovery” of a missing file in the appeal by imprisoned newspaper editor Mohamed Benchicou against his two-year jail sentence. The file was supposedly lost more than three weeks ago by the supreme court. The worldwide press freedom organisation said it was still worried about the legal irregularities and failings in the case. “The file certainly did not disappear by accident,” it said. “This episode has delayed the case and we still do not know which level of the court will deal with it.”Benchicou’s lawyers announced on 25 July that the appeal case-file, submitted last 24 October, had been lost by the court.———————————————————————-25.07.2005 Unprecedented denial of justice in Benchicou case Follow the news on Algeria Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the disappearance of the court case file of Le Matin editor Mohammed Benchicou, who has appealed against his conviction and imprisonment to the supreme court. The file has reportedly been “mislaid” by the authorities.”The judicial authorities continue to hound Benchicou after refusing to release him on 20 April on health grounds,” the press freedom organisation said. “His newspaper has been closed for a year and there has been no let-up in the judicial harassment since his conviction, so we are not fooled now. His case file has clearly not been lost by chance.”Benchicou’s lawyers revealed in a statement today that his case file, which was forwarded by the prosecutor’s office on 24 October, “cannot be found at the supreme court level.” They said they had been unsuccessful in their approaches to all of the supreme court clerk offices concerned.If the file is not found quickly, Benchicou will be unable to exercise his right of challenge within a reasonable period against the heavy sentence that was upheld on appeal on 11 August, which would constitute a “blatant denial of justice that is unprecedented in our country’s judicial history,” the lawyers said.Benchicou has been serving a two-year prison sentence since 14 June 2004. Le Matin opposed President Bouteflika during his campaign for re-election in April 2004.

US – RSF calls for criminal charges to be dropped against journalist covering Dakota Access pipeline protests
Monet was released on bond late on February 2. She has been charged with trespassing and “engaging in a riot” by Morton County, North Dakota prosecutors.Monet maintains that she was simply doing her job as a journalist to cover a protest camp near the Standing Rock reservation as police attempted to disband it. At the time of her arrest she was on assignment for Indian Country Daily and the Center for Investigative Reporting. Monet said she was standing at a distance from the protesters and identified herself as a journalist. She told the Los Angeles Times yesterday that after police told her to leave she complied: “I was walking away, I was halfway down the hill, and they still arrested me.” She also says officers never read her her Miranda rights and she was detained for 7 hours with other women “stripped down to our long johns” in metal cages in a parking garage near the Morton County jail, before being transferred to an indoor cell.Monet, 40, also contributes frequently to PBS “News Hour.” Image credit: JIM WATSON / AFP Help by sharing this information to go further United StatesAmericas Condemning abuses EnvironmentJudicial harassment April 28, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for all criminal charges to be dropped against Jenni Monet, a journalist who was arrested February 1 while covering protests against the Dakota Access pipeline.
