Investors have rushed to sell FTSE 100 stocks over the past few weeks. However, some companies are now starting to look oversold.With that in mind, here are three FTSE 100 dividend stocks, which appear to have fallen too far too fast, that I’m buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA 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…FTSE 100 income championShares in FTSE 100 income champion Phoenix Group Holdings (LSE: PHNX) have fallen by around 20% over the past few weeks. It is difficult to see why.The company is one of the largest pensions consolidators in Europe. It buys pension policies from other businesses and then manages them on behalf of retirees.Phoenix can use its economies of scale to reduce costs and earn better returns for savers.As the company is managing these assets with a multi-decade time horizon in mind, it is unlikely to be affected by any near-term economic uncertainty. That suggests the business is well placed to generate healthy profits for shareholders in the long run.Management seems to agree. Over the past few weeks, managers and directors have spent nearly half a million pounds boosting their stakes in this FTSE 100 dividend champion.With the company’s dividend yield currently standing at 7.6%, now could be a good time for income investors to follow suit.Pensions championFTSE 100 dividend leader Aviva (LSE: AV) operates a similar business model to that of Phoenix.The company manages pensions for millions of people across the UK. It also provides insurance services.Both of these are relatively defensive businesses. While the demand for pension planning and insurance might drop in the near term, over the long term, the need for these services is only likely to expand.Aviva is well-placed to weather the storm and come out stronger on the other side.A few weeks ago, the organisation announced that its solvency ratio as of 13 March was 175%, even after taking into account the final dividend payment for 2019. The company had a net cash position of £2.4bn.As such, now could be a great time to snap up a share in this FTSE 100 stalwart. The shares are currently dealing at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 4.7. They also offer a dividend yield of 12.4%. That seems too good to pass up in the current interest rate environment.Global diversificationInternational FTSE 100 financial services company Prudential (LSE: PRU) has also seen heavy selling by investors over the past few weeks.Earlier last week, management came out to reassure investors by saying that the organisation remains “financially resilient.” Even after the recent market turmoil, the group’s capital ratios are still well within management guidelines.What’s more, Prudential’s international diversification gives it a level of protection against business uncertainty in the US and UK. Management is so optimistic about the company’s prospects, the group recently bought out the minority partner of its Thai joint venture.With a dividend yield of 3.4% on offer, Prudential looks attractive as an income investment after the recent declines.The stock is also trading at a P/E of 6.4, its lowest valuation in more than five years. That is a discount of around 30% to the rest of the financial services sector.Considering the company’s financial strength, now might be a great time to buy this FTSE 100 growth and income champion.

A journalist wanted by the police for having denounced police extortion

first_img RSF_en Help by sharing this information News Organisation November 27, 2020 Find out more April 22, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 A journalist wanted by the police for having denounced police extortion April 6, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa KenyaAfrica KenyaAfrica to go furthercenter_img Follow the news on Kenya Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has written to Alex Rono, head of the North-Eastern Provincial Police calling on him to reverse an order for the arrest of Victore Obure, the Garissa correspondent of the East African Standard. “He is a journalist who is simply carrying out his work. There can be no justification for ordering his arrest,” said RSF Secretary General Robert Ménard. “The fact that he has gone underground is a very alarming sign of the treatment meted out to journalists detained by the police. The Head of the police said in December 2000, however, that measures would be taken to ‘harmonise the relationship between the police and journalists’.” RSF has learned that Victor Obure, the Garissa correspondent of the East African Standard, has decided to go underground because of fears for his safety. According to police sources, the Criminal Investigation Department – CID – called for his arrest a week ago following an article which reported the extortion of thousands of shillings from the inhabitants of Garissa by police, during a crackdown on illegal immigrants in the city. RSF also gave a reminder that on 22 March 2002, The People Daily newspaper and its Chief Editor George Mbugguss, were ordered to pay 20 million Kenyan shillings (about 300,000 Euros), to Nicholas Biwott, Minister for Trade and the Interior, for “libel”. “The secret history of Moi-Nyache, an article published on 10 March 1999, claimed that Mr. Biwott, then Minister for the Eastern African Community, was involved in the controversial awarding of a tender for the construction of a hydro-electricity dam. The newspaper claimed that the “Turkwell Gorge” project had been awarded to a French company under dubious circumstances.

Lower ramps blamed for return to speeding

first_imgEmail NewsLocal NewsLower ramps blamed for return to speedingBy admin – November 14, 2011 602 Advertisement Facebook Linkedin Previous articleCalling all Limerick school fashionistasNext articleSouth Court Hotel takes lead from top chef admincenter_img Twitter WhatsApp Print Motorists reverted back to speeding when height of ramps was reversedCURRENTLY back on the agenda in City Hall is the issue of road ramps.Some years ago hardly a week went by without councillors calling for the installation of ramps to prevent motorists speeding through housing estates in their areas.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Now, the southside councillor, Ger Fahy is concerned that the ramps being used are not up to the job.“I remember when there were rat runs in Janesboro and the people there and especially children were at risk of being knocked down by cars travelling at speed.“When ramps were installed, however, it was no time before complaints were being received from motorists claiming that the height of the ramps was responsible for damaging their cars.“Then it was decided that the ramps were too high and would have to be lowered and guess what happened – motorists reverted back to speeding – they can do so safely over the ramps, so the effective work has been nullified.”Road Traffic engineer with the city council, Rory McDermott told the meeting that the Department of Transport had ordered that the steeper ramps be removed.“I can only work to the current regulations,” he told Cllr Fahy.Emphasising the importance of traffic regulation, Cllr Tom Shortt said that effective traffic calming measures are vital.“For instance, Athlunkard Bridge is very dangerous for cyclists, where you have trucks overtaking cyclists on a very narrow area.Cllr Kathleen Leddin also voiced concern for the safety of cyclists on the flyover.Agreeing that there are difficulties, Mr McDermott said this is regrettable as the council is keen to encourage more cyclists on to the roads.“However the National Roads Authority is reverting to the British system, where, as the road becomes more dangerous, the line gets longer.“As for concerns of safety for cyclists on Athlunkard Bridge, I can assure you that we are dealing with this problem.last_img read more

Hunters takes aim at London float

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Hunters takes aim at London float previous nextAgencies & PeopleHunters takes aim at London floatHunters is set to float on the AIM Market, while Benham and Reeves claims to now be London’s largest independent letting agency.PROPERTYdrum25th June 20150590 Views Hunters is preparing to float on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange to take advantage of the improving residential property market.The large estate agency firms, which has over 150 branches, the vast majority of which are franchised, has already appointed Numis Securities as Nominated Adviser and Broker with a view to start trading on AIM by the end of next week.Kevin Hollinrake (left), the Chairman of Hunters, who was recently elected as a Conservative MP, said, “Hunters is a highly ambitious company. Our success to date has been born out of our focus on providing our customers with an exceptional service combined with local market knowledge. The Group is excited about its next chapter as a public company. This status will help to further enhance the Hunters brand and provide access to capital to accelerate business growth.”Hunters last week welcomed Norfolk-based Kudos Residential to its fast growing network estate agents. All seven of Kudos Residential’s branches, located across the county, including the main towns and cities of Norwich and Great Yarmouth, have all been rebranded.Glynis Frew (right), Managing Director of Hunters Property Group, said, “This is another exciting milestone for Hunters. As we continue to widen our reach, we are delighted to have Kudos Residential on-board and look forward to what promises to be a very successful future working together under the Hunters umbrella. This compliments our branch opening in Bungay, Suffolk in October 2014 – which saw us break into the East Anglian market for the very first time.”Kudos Residential’s seven-strong network encompasses offices in Norwich, Hellesdon, Brundall, Poringland, Long Stratton, Great Yarmouth and Gorleston.Chris Starkings, Director of Kudos Residential, said, “Through the opening of new offices and the acquisition of other local estate agents, we have grown organically to become Norfolk’s largest independent agent; with customer service at our heart.“It is unusual to see a business of Hunters size, which is so service driven and we wanted to partner with someone who had the same values as ourselves. The national network that Hunters offers is of huge benefit to our local offices – particularly the reach it has in London.”Meanwhile, Benham and Reeves Residential Lettings claims that it is poised to become London’s largest independent letting agency with the opening of two new offices in Hammersmith and in Wapping.“While some of our competitors are closing offices and just operating through a website, we feel there is nothing like face-to-face contact and a handshake,” said Managing Director Anita Mehra. “These new offices will allow us to ensure customer service is always at the forefront.”Glynis Frew London float London Stock Exchange lettings Kevin Hollinrake Hunters AIM market Benham and Reeves June 25, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

GiGse will explore the marriage of esports and gaming

first_imgEsports is set to play a big part at the 2017 edition of  GiGse (April 26 – 28, Marriott Marquis Marina, San Diego) with sessions looking at how the gambling sector can gain a market share of the economy. Sadie Walters, GiGseIt will look at this relationship both in terms of igaming and casinos. Day 1’s Talking Heads session, entitled ‘Our relationship with esports – we’re moving in together!’ will feature the likes of Adam Steinberg, Senior Vice President, Spectrum Gaming Group; Kingsley Edwards, Founder and CEO, Leet; Seth Schorr, CEO, Fifth Street Gaming and Dan Kelly, Principal, The Factory Network.  The debates will include how operators can refine their casino based esports offering, how to monetise the tournament industry as well as posing the question of whether there is a conversion between on-premise esports activity and casino revenue?Sadie Walters, Conference Manager responsible for GiGse said: “With architects confidently predicting the development of purpose built state of the art esports arenas and the very real possibility of esports becoming an Olympic event, perhaps as early as Tokyo 2020, the commercial opportunities for gaming entrepreneurs are huge.”When it comes to Las Vegas and casinos, there is unmatched potential for these to be used to hold mid-level esports tournaments in their venues. Only yesterday it was announced that Esports Arena, in partnership with Allied Esports, is re-vamping a 30,000 square foot nightclub space in the Luxor on the Strip for a dedicated esports venue.Nearby in the downtown part of the city, Millennial Esports has its 200 seater venue at the Neonopolis. This is a company which recently saw a $2m cash injection. Sadie Walters added: “Gaming is one of the earliest adopters of new technology and the marriage with esports could be one made in heaven.”GiGse offers a solid opportunity to prepare gaming brands for the challenges and opportunities which lie ahead. With a focus on ‘unconventional thinking’ it will explore the technology, innovations and potential regulatory hurdles facing all gaming brands operating in North America.Esports Insider says: The likes of Seth Schoor are extremely well placed to discuss how esports and casinos can work best together. As the Chairman of the Downtown Grand he’s seen the potential of these two linking up for some time, and if you happen to be in San Diego for GiGse 2017 stop by and listen.last_img read more

Ganta Breaks Ground for US$500K Multi-Purpose City Hall

first_imgMin Varney Sirleaf, maeks remarks after cutting the ribbon, symbolizing the ground-breaking for the Ganta City Hall project.Ganta City authorities in Nimba County on Saturday, May 4, 2019, broke ground to construct a multi-purpose city hall at the estimated cost of US$500,000.The project, according to Ganta City Mayor Amos N. Suah, will be completed in one year’s time to contain offices, guest rooms, conference halls, along with other modern facilities.“We will ensure that the building is completed in time so that our kids can have a place to celebrate any big event including Christmas,” the Mayor said.Construction work is already taking place as far as planting the pillars, to be followed by the first floor casting.In the wake of the construction work, the city authorities are soliciting funding from the residents, while at the same time, appealing to the government for support to meet up with the one year deadline of completion.The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by high profiled individuals headed by Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf and former Nimba Senator Hilary Gbomblee.Minister Sirleaf provided US$10,000 as President George Weah’s initial contribution to the construction and pledged government’s support to complete the project.“We are happy for this project, because it will host most of our workshops to cut down some of the expenses on renting private places for workshops,” he said.The Internal Affairs Minister praised Mayor Suah and his officials for undertaking such a huge project, but called on them to be accountable to every cent they will collect from the residents so as to get their continuous full support.With that caution, Mayor Suah promised to be very transparent with the citizens concerning the use of the money raised for the project. He said a committee will be set up to manage every cent collected, and give a periodic account to the public regarding expenditures.“We are calling on all the citizens, especially those residing in Ganta, to make meaningful contribution to speed up with the project,” Suah said. Ganta is one of the growing cities in Liberia. Yet the lack of city hall, pipe-borne water and access to the existing streets remain obstacles to the speedy development of the city.James V.
