2 stocks I wish I’d bought that turned £1k into £10k+ in the last 5 years

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” As active investors, it can be hard to stick to a long-term investment approach. Yes, you want to be able to seize opportunities quickly when they become apparent, but it can be hard to not sell out when your call proves right in the short term and you are already in profit.The merit in being patient and not selling out early is evident with the two stocks below. Both of these would have given you over 1,000% returns if you had bought and held over the last five years. Whether you would have had the self discipline to avoid taking profits earlier is a question only you can answer as you read on below!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…Games WorkshopHome to the popular Warhammer and Lord of the Rings board games, Games Workshop (LSE: GAW) has had a truly spectacular five years. From a share price of just over 500p in early 2015, it has grown 1,223% to a closing share price on Friday of 6,635p. This would have grown your £1,000 investment to £12,230.Everywhere you look you will find analysts and brokers singing the praises of the business. From a financial perspective, it has grown revenue and bottom line profit year-on-year since 2015. This has been fairly linear growth as well, showing that it is a sustainable model. From revenues of £118m and £14m profit in 2016, this has grown to revenues of £257m and £67m profit respectively for last year.A second key financial contributor to the success of the firm is the lack of debt tied to the business. Quoting from the annual report from last year, non-executive chairman Nick Donaldson said “our dividends are paid entirely out of surplus cash generated, not debt. We continue to have no borrowings”.This allows the business to free up cash flow that otherwise would have to go towards interest payments on debt, along with showing general financial prudence from the management team.FutureTwo months ago I wrote a piece dedicated to the performance of Future (LSE: FUTR), which you can read here. At that time, I showed how a £500 investment would have doubled your money in the space of one year. Looking back over five years, and your £1,000 investment would be up a staggering 11,670%, meaning it would be worth £116,700 using the Friday closing price of 1,280p. I would stress regarding this performance that this is a huge outlier, and investors should not use this as a barometer for performance against other stocks. The huge growth in share price has come from the company having a turnaround in performance thanks to acquisitions and expansion into new geographical areas.From posting a loss in 2015 of £1.3m, the business generated a profit of £8.1m for 2019, so you can see how the pivot from loss to profit has coincided with a much higher market capitalisation, reflected by the share price growth.Overall, there are stocks such as the two mentioned above which can generate you out-sized investment returns. The moral of the story though – stay invested for the long term, even if you are in profit already! You never know how much it could continue to rally over the next five years.

Justice Department Subpoenas Information from Meatpackers

first_img SHARE By NAFB News Service – Jun 7, 2020 Facebook Twitter Justice Department Subpoenas Information from Meatpackers Previous articleThe Week in Review Podcast – Hoosier Ag This Week for June 6, 2020Next articleWorld Dairy Expo Canceled for the First Time NAFB News Service The Justice Department has made a formal demand for information from the country’s four biggest meatpackers as they investigate potential antitrust violations. A Bloomberg article says that deepens the scrutiny of an industry that’s already been hit hard by plant shutdowns due to the coronavirus.The department’s antitrust division sent civil investigative demands, which are similar to subpoenas, to the companies. The Justice Department is also talking with state attorneys general about the probe after a group of states called for an official investigation.The four meatpackers that control more than 80 percent of the U.S. beef processing market include Tyson Foods, JBS, Cargill, and National Beef Incorporated. Their dominance in the industry has sparked concerns about their pricing power over livestock suppliers for years.Bloomberg says three of the companies didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. National Beef, based in Kansas City, Missouri, confirmed they did get the civil investigative demand from the Justice Department, but they noted that ”The request is very narrow in scope, which leads us to believe that the DOJ doesn’t necessarily believe there is an antitrust issue.”The Justice Department subpoenas to meatpackers follow criminal charges last week against four current and former executives of chicken processing companies.

Why the State Fair was Canceled and What it Means for…

first_img SHARE It was announced last week that the 2020 Indiana State Fair would not be held. What led to the decision and what does it mean for Indiana 4-H youth?For the past 2 months, the Indiana State Fair board has been wrestling with how to hold a fair in the era of COVID-19. Fair Executive Director Cindy Hoye said they had a plan they thought would work, but then things started to unravel.“Many of our partners and companies started telling us they would not be able to participate in the fair in the way they always have. The Hot Air Balloon liftoff would not happen; the High School Marching Band Competition would not happen. There was concern the at-risk older volunteers at Pioneer Village would not be able to come.”In the end, Hoye said it came down to the total fair experience.“We did not want to offer a half a fair. If we could not deliver the whole fair with all the things people love and expect, then we had no choice but to not hold the fair.”Fair Board Director and Miami County Pork producer Jeanette Merritt told HAT it was a very difficult decision. But, in the end one, she feels it was the right choice.“I am a huge supporter of the fair and of 4-H, and I am really sad the fair will not take place in 2020.”While the fair will not happen in a traditional sense, there will be 4-H competitions with animals in the barns.“This is our core mission: to showcase agriculture and support 4-H youth. We will give 4-H youth the chance to show their animals and that means everything: Cattle, hogs, goats, llamas rabbits, poultry, even dogs and cats,” stated Hoye.Static exhibits and fashion review and public speaking competition will also be held virtually.Merritt noted that with many county fairs not having animal competitions, this may be the only chance for some 4-Hers to show off their hard work.“With so many students not in school, those livestock got a lot of extra work,” she stated.More details on how this program is going to work will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead.Hoye told HAT this is not the first time the fair has been halted. She is optimistic the 2021 Fair will be back and be better than ever.“I think there will be a real pent up demand for all the fair activities and fair food in 2021.”During the Civil War and WWII, the Fairgrounds was needed to support the war effort.Hoye said “We are grateful for the support of our State Fair Family, each one of you who makes the iconic event possible every summer. To our beloved fans, staff, sponsors, exhibitors, 4-H & FFA members, vendors, volunteers and entertainers – we look forward to being back at full strength in August 2021.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Why the State Fair was Canceled and What it Means for 4-H SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jun 7, 2020 Why the State Fair was Canceled and What it Means for 4-H Facebook Twitter Previous articleCorn Left to Plant?

Zillow Will Use In-House Agents for iBuying

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Zillow, which heretofore has turned to brokerage partners to represent it in home purchases, has announced it will begin using its own agents in the booming iBuying department. In streamlining this operation by way of Zillow Offers, Zillow promises to make homebuying transactions smoother.Zillow said it will implement the new practice in January for its clients in Atlanta, Phoenix, and Tuscon.”Zillow-owned homes in these markets will be listed for sale by licensed Zillow Homes employees,” the firm said in a press release. “The company expects to expand these services to additional Zillow Offers markets later in 2021.”Zillow’s Errol Samuelson, Chief Industry Development Officer, in a video, said Zillow will encourage its existing employees to secure a license. “Let me address one thing right off the bat,” Samuelson said. “We are not recruiting agents from other brokerages.”Jeremy Wacksman, President of Zillow said he is excited to improve the Zillow Offers transaction chain.”At Zillow, our mission is to give people the power to unlock life’s next chapter and we want to help them on their journey home through a range of services that meet their preferences–whether through Zillow Offers or through a trusted Zillow Premier Agent partner,” he said.Reporter E.B. Solomont at RealDeal.com further explains the significance of the change, “Zillow, which historically made money by selling ads through its Premier Agent program, has bet big on iBuying since 2018, when CEO Rich Barton called instant home-buying a ‘moon shot’ opportunity. In general, iBuyers like Zillow, Opendoor and others make cash offers for homes for a fee, and aim to resell at a profit after making modest repairs.”The RealDeal added that “Zillow has denied plans to operate a traditional brokerage. Rather, it says some of its offerings require licensing, such as its Flex program, which gives agents qualified buyer leads. Agents pay no upfront costs but get a ‘success fee’ akin to a referral fee if they close a deal.”Zillow reported that the homes it owns will be listed in MLSs, “with commissions paid to agents representing buyers. The company will also continue to invest in and expand its Premier Agent business and partnerships, including connecting other interested buyers and sellers to Zillow Premier Agents, which is expected to be the preference of the majority of Zillow’s customers.””We look forward to working more closely with our agent, industry and MLS partners to efficiently serve our mutual customers,” added Wacksman. “Together, we will push to keep the real estate industry moving forward, and adapt to changing consumer preferences and virtual technologies.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Home / Daily Dose / Zillow Will Use In-House Agents for iBuying Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Zillow Will Use In-House Agents for iBuying September 23, 2020 962 Views 2020-09-23 Christina Hughes Babb Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Shahrukh Pathan has also been named as the main accused in another case in which he had allegedly brandished his gun and shot at HC. Deepak Dahiya, in full public view. To establish an offense under section 120B of the IPC, the charge sheet states that: ‘During investigation of all the 3 cases being charge sheeted today, it has emerged that there was a deep-rooted conspiracy which triggered the communal riot. A web of conspirators, instigators and rioters has been identified and several have been arrested. The chronology of events since the enactment of CAA has been investigated.’ Crime Branch is also claiming that the riots were not impromptu but were conspired with intent to create communal strife, to malign the image of the Country under the garb of democratically opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act. The conspirators, charge sheet mentions, caused disruption by the dual scheme of spreading misinformation on CAA and causing CHAKKA JAM on main arterial roads, which triggered a major communal riot.

In Jorhat, Dibrugarh and Tezpur, this arrangement of detention centres within jail premises has been continuing for the past 5 years.The bench noted that such a practise was against the directions given by the Supreme Court in Gauha and the subsequent guidelines issued by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs in 2014.As per these directions, the State Governments are required to set up set up sufficient numbers of detention centres/holding centres/camps for restricting the movement of illegal migrants/foreign nationals. Such detention centres are to be set up outside the jail premises.”From the aforesaid, it is discernible that the detention centres must be outside the jail premises and secondly pending any acquisition of lands and construction of buildings, the State Government may find suitable accommodations for the purpose and if government buildings are not available, the State Government may look for hiring private buildings for the purpose”, the Court observed.The Court said : “It does not require any adjudication that the declaration of a part of the jail premises in the aforesaid places(Goalpara, Kokrajhar, Silchar, Jorhat, Dibrugarh and Tezpur) are not the complete requirement of the provisions in Bhim Singh (supra) and the two aforesaid communications dated 10.09.2014 and 07.03.2012 of the Govt. of India in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Foreigners Division as well as the provision of Clause 4.1 of the model manual for the detention centres”. The Court said that the arrangement continuing in these places for the past 5-10 years cannot be regarded as a temporary measure.Therefore, the Court directed the government to take steps in accordance with the SC judgment and the MHA guidelines and to file action taken report by October 16.”We require the authorities in the State Government, Home and Political Affairs to submit an action taken report within the next returnable date on the steps that have been taken to set up detention centre outside the jail premises and if necessary by following the requirement of the two communication dated 07.03.2012 and 10.09.2014 as well as the Clause 4.1 and 4.4 of the model manual which requires that if suitable government accommodations are not available for the purpose, the authorities may also be required to hire any private premises for the purpose”.The direction was passed in the petitions filed by Santhanu Borthakur, Abantee Dutta, Dipika Sarkar raising the issue as to in what manner the detention centers are required to be operated by the authorities for the purpose of keeping the foreigners/illegal migrants and others who are awaiting deportation/repatriation to the countries of their origin or waiting an adjudication of their respective claim.The Court heard N Dutta, Senior Advocate for the petitioners, RKD Choudhury, Senior Government Pleader and A Gyan for the Union of India.Click here to download the orderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Patrick Frazee found guilty of killing missing fiancee Kelsey Berreth; sentenced to life without parole

first_imgABC News(DENVER, Colorado) — A Colorado man has been convicted of killing 29-year-old Kelsey Berreth, who was his fiancee and the mother of his young daughter, following a dramatic trial that brought bombshell testimony from witnesses, including a fellow inmate and his former girlfriend.As the trial of Frazee came to a close, prosecutors Monday described the case as a “deliberate, premeditated, cold and cruel murder.”A verdict was delivered just hours after closing arguments.Frazee was found guilty on all counts, including first-degree felony murder and three counts of solicitation to commit murder. He was sentenced an hour later to life without parole plus 156 years — the maximum possible sentence.“Your actions were vicious, senseless, without reason nor explanation. … Kelsey spent her last night caring for you — you repaid that kindness by viciously beating her to death,” Judge Scott Sells said. “After you beat her, you burned her body like a piece of trash. Your crimes deserve the absolute punishment available.”Frazee was accused of attacking Berreth with a baseball bat at her Woodland Park, Colorado, home on Nov. 22, 2018 — which was Thanksgiving — while the couple’s 1-year-old daughter, Kaylee, sat in a playpen in a back room.Prosecutors allege Frazee then put Berreth’s body in a black plastic tote and burned it on his property.His defense attorneys, who did not call any witnesses, stress that a body and a murder weapon have never been recovered.‘Only one person knows why’In closing arguments on Monday, prosecutors said Frazee knew Berreth, 29, was dead because he never attempted to contact her after Nov. 25, 2018.Prosecutor Beth Reid also reminded the jury that Frazee was captured on a neighbor’s surveillance camera outside Berreth’s condo at the same time he claimed he was 40 miles away tending to his cattle.Reid showed the jury security camera photos that captured Frazee’s red pickup truck driving in Woodland Park on Thanksgiving with a large black tote box in the back.“Her beaten and battered body is in that box, which he keeps on the back of the truck while he eats Thanksgiving dinner,” said Reid.Reid told jurors that they did not need to agree on Frazee’s alleged motive in order to convict him of murder.“The reality is,” Reid told the jurors, “only one person knows why.”Ex-girlfriend takes the standFrazee’s ex-girlfriend Krystal Lee was a star witness for the prosecution, and testified that Frazee called her to come to Berreth’s house to clean up the bloody aftermath.Lee told jurors that Frazee admitted to tying a blindfold around Berreth’s head and asked her to guess the scent of candles before beating her to death with a baseball bat.“I saw blood all over the floor and blood all over the wall,” she testified. “There was blood on the front of the stove and the dishwasher, and on the floor there were bloody footprints.”Lee, who has admitted to disposing of Berreth’s phone, has pleaded guilty to tampering with physical evidence. Records showed Berreth’s phone traveled with Lee’s phone to Idaho where Lee says she destroyed it. She is awaiting sentencing once Frazee’s case concludes.Notes to an inmateLast Friday, an inmate testified that Frazee recently asked him to use his connections to a prison gang to kill several witnesses in the case, including Lee.The inmate says he and Frazee were in jail together from Sept. 26 to Oct. 12, 2019.“He would pass me notes if his information was too sensitive,” the inmate said, claiming Frazee told him he’d take care of him financially when he got out.In court, a state investigator read from a number of those notes, which were written on paper towels and napkins. The notes, the investigator testified, contained hit lists, along with detailed instructions on where to find the witnesses. The list included Lee, her parents and her ex-husband.“They all need to disappear, unseen until 11/22 after the trial,” said a note, which the investigator testified appeared to be in Frazee’s handwriting. “I’d really like to see Krystal with a bullet in her head.”‘Patrick Frazee is not guilty’Defense attorney Adam Steigerwald questioned the credibility of Lee and the evidence, saying in his closing argument Monday, “This case has been built on a foundation it cannot support. Patrick Frazee is not guilty.”Steigerwald argued that the case against Frazee is circumstantial and based on a story “made up” by Lee, adding she didn’t cooperate with investigators until the district attorney agreed to a deal to not prosecute her for more serious crimes.“There is not one word from Krystal Lee until she has a signature on the dotted line,” Steigerwald said. “There is nothing she talked about that is believable.”Steigerwald also pointed out that neither Frazee nor Lee’s DNA were detected anywhere in Berreth’s condo, despite the prosecution theory that her condo was where Frazee killed Berreth and where Lee cleaned up the aftermath.Steigerwald also attacked evidence provided by a neighbor’s security camera, saying it did not show Frazee going onto Berreth’s home — or coming out — carrying a baseball bat or a tote. In addition, Steigerwald said none of Berreth’s neighbors heard or saw anything suspicious on Thanksgiving, which Steigerwald called an unlikely day to plan a murder.“Is there a day of the year when people are less likely to be alone? To be missed? To speak to your family than Thanksgiving Day?” Steigerwald asked the jury.Frazee was arrested in December 2018 on charges including first-degree murder. Judge Scott Sells told the jury they can also consider finding Frazee guilty of second-degree murder or manslaughter.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Coronavirus live updates: Eli Lilly to supply US with 300,000 vials of antibody drug

first_imgnarvikk/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 1.1 million people worldwide.Over 44 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks. The criteria for diagnosis — through clinical means or a lab test — has also varied from country to country.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the virus has rapidly spread to every continent except Antarctica. The United States is the worst-affected nation, with more than 8.7 million diagnosed cases and at least 226,864 deaths.Nearly 200 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are being tracked by the World Health Organization, at least 10 of which are in crucial phase three studies. Of those 10 potential vaccines in late-stage trials, there are currently five that will be available in the United States if approved.Here’s how the news is developing Wednesday. All times Eastern:Oct 28, 11:47 amWisconsin football on pause following 12 COVID-19 casesThe University of Wisconsin football team is pausing all activities for at least one week following an “elevated number” of COVID-19 cases, the team announced. As of Wednesday morning, 12 people — six athletes and six staff members — had tested positive within the last five days, the team said.Wisconsin was set to plan Nebraska on Saturday but the game has been canceled.Oct 28, 10:29 amFrance braces for possible nationwide lockdownFrench President Emmanuel Macron is expected to announce further restrictions to curb a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.Macron is slated to make a televised address on Wednesday evening, after holding emergency meetings with government officials to discuss the COVID-19 response. A four-week nationwide lockdown is reportedly among the options being considered, according to French media.French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin told France Inter radio on Tuesday that citizens “must expect difficult decisions.”Macron’s announcement would follow an alarming spike in deaths from COVID-19 as well as record numbers of new cases across France. Nighttime curfews have already been imposed in many areas, including Paris.France’s public health agency has confirmed 1,198,695 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, including 35,541 deaths.Oct 28, 9:07 amPoland sees record rise in new casesPoland confirmed another 18,820 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, its highest single-day increase yet.An additional 236 fatalities from COVID-19 were also registered across the Central European country in the past 24 hours, according to the Polish Ministry of Health.Poland’s cumulative total currently stands at 299,049 cases with 4,851 deaths.Meanwhile, nearly 14,000 COVID-19 patients remained hospitalized in Poland as of Wednesday morning, including 1,150 who are on ventilators, the health ministry said.Oct 28, 8:03 amEli Lilly to supply US with 300,000 vials of experimental antibody drugEli Lilly and Company announced Wednesday an initial agreement with the U.S. government to supply 300,000 vials of one of its experimental antibody treatments for $375 million to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.The federal government will accept the vials of bamlanivimab, a monoclonal antibody drug, if it is granted emergency use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The initial agreement also provides the option for the federal government to purchase up to an additional 650,000 vials through June 2021, according to a press release from Eli Lilly and Company.The Indianapolis-based pharmaceutical firm submitted a request earlier this month for the FDA to authorize emergency use of bamlanivimab in non-hospitalized, high-risk individuals with mild to moderate cases of COVID-19.“The U.S. is experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases and associated hospitalizations,” said David Ricks, chairman and CEO of Eli Lilly and Company, “and we believe bamlanivimab could be an important therapeutic option that can bring value to the overall healthcare system, as it has shown a potential benefit in clinical outcomes with a reduction in viral load and rates of symptoms and hospitalizations.”If the FDA authorizes use of the therapeutic, the federal government will allocate the doses to state and territorial health departments which will then determine which health care facilities receive the drug for use in outpatient care. The government-purchased doses would become available to Americans at no cost, though health care professionals could charge for administering the intravenous infusion, according to a statement from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.“This agreement with Eli Lilly is part of Operation Warp Speed’s efforts to position the federal government to distribute potential therapeutics, allowing faster distribution if trials are successful,” said Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar.The deal comes after the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases announced Monday that it has stopped testing a combination of bamlanivimab with the antiviral medication remedesivir in hospitalized COVID-19 patients, after an independent review of results found a “lack of clinical benefit.” Eli Lilly and Company said that all other studies of bamlanivimab, including its own phase 3 clinical trials, will continue and that it remains “confident” that the drug may help prevent progression of COVID-19 for individuals earlier in the course of their disease.Oct 28, 6:06 amRussia’s daily death toll reaches record high for second straight dayRussia registered 346 more deaths from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, setting a new national record, according to the country’s coronavirus response headquarters.The country’s previous record of 320 deaths in a 24-hour reporting period was set just a day earlier.An additional 16,202 new cases of COVID-19 were also confirmed in the past day, down from Sunday’s peak of 17,347, according to Russia’s coronavirus response headquarters.Moscow remains the epicenter of the country’s outbreak and recent surge.
