I’m betting that British banking stocks will continue to bounce back

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Tony Loton | Tuesday, 27th October, 2020 I’ve read a lot this year about whether the British government should be supporting viable businesses, especially since many previously booming businesses have only become unviable because they were told to close during the Covid-19 pandemic. Banks weren’t told to close, and an ever-increasing amount of their business is done online or over the telephone these days, so you might wonder why banking stocks were beaten down so badly this year. And whether they’ll bounce back.Why banking stocks have been beaten downAlthough they haven’t been told to close, it’s hard for banks to make money when interest rates are so low, and even harder if interest rates actually turn negative. Then add the prospect of a no-deal Brexit and US election uncertainty into the mix.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…But the low interest rates can’t last forever, the pandemic will pass, Brexit will be completed (one way or another), and the US election will remove a lot of international uncertainty.Why the FTSE banks will bounce backUltimately, the banks will bounce back because we’ll always need them, and the only thing that will upset this particular applecart is if the challenger fintechs such as Starling and Monzo succeed in disrupting the banking market. However, I think the familiar FTSE 350 banks will be around for a lot longer than the challengers would like, mainly because they’re upping the ante with their own mobile apps.The banking bounceback has begunOn 27 October, the HSBC share price shot up somewhat on news that the bank was considering reinstating its dividend after profits had beaten expectations. That’s good news for investors, as may be the news that the bank is looking to cut costs. The share price was already rising from its lowest point, and – until today – this month-long rising tide had lifted all the British banking stock boats including Banco Santander, Barclays, Lloyds, and Natwest.The dynamics are somewhat different for European and American banks, which is why I’m only betting on British banks. Stick with the stocks you know!How I’m betting on the banking bouncebackOkay, I’ll admit it. Even as a committed Fool, I operate a spread betting account, which allows me literally to “bet” on the individual banks or the FTSE 350 basket of banking stocks. But I’m no day trader, and my long-term investment approach is no different in this account than it is when investing via my tax-efficient individual savings account (ISA) or my self-invested personal pension (SIPP). Whichever account I work with, I buy and sell exactly the same stocks or other securities at exactly the same times. The only things that are different are the fees I pay and the amount of money I make when I make the right investments.So far, so good, with most if not all of my banking stock positions currently showing a profit in all my accounts since September. But diversification could be crucial because any one of my individual banking investments might not be a good bet, as my Foolish colleague Roland Head has previously suggested.

General strike: Greek workers respond to government’s attacks

first_imgIn big cities like Athens and Thessaloníki, and smaller ones like Larissa and Patras, workers in Greece struck and marched by the thousands Nov. 26 to defend workers’ wages and benefits. Their actions defied government restrictions, made under the pretext of responding to COVID-19, which limit gatherings of more than three people.Greek demonstrators, maintaining social distance, commemorate the 1973 Greek student revolt against the former military dictatorship.The Greek government has introduced bills into parliament, at the behest of big business, which require workers to accept a 10-hour work day while only getting paid for 8 hours, along with substantially lower wages and Sunday work. Social security will be privatized, along with public facilities such as transportation systems.A decade of austerity imposed by the IMF and the big European and U.S. banks has shrunk Greece’s economy by at least 25%. The impact of COVID-19 has produced a 10.5% drop in its GDP in 2020. The Greek capitalists need every euro they can extort from Greek workers.Dozens of union federations, labor centers and trade unions across the country went on strike, responding to the call from the All Workers Militant Front (PAME). Among them are federations of hospital doctors and other medical workers, construction workers, workers in the pharmaceutical industry, and the labor centers of Athens, Piraeus, Patras and dozens of other cities.The unions representing marine workers — particularly important in a country with so many islands — held a 24-hour nationwide strike in all ship categories, while the workers of the Athens urban transport also participated in the strike.PAME has demanded benefits — without terms and conditions — for all unemployed workers, revoking all illegal layoffs during this COVID-19 period and ending any further job furloughs. PAME and the unions supporting its call also demand no cuts in employment rights and a moratorium on bank payments, along with free electricity, gas, water and communication services for workers in quarantine.Health workers’ demandsProtesting health workers have demanded more hospital beds, including intensive care units, additional diagnostics and laboratory centers, as well as the mass recruitment of doctors of all specialties and nursing staff. A key demand is that the government ensure sufficient infrastructure and personal protective equipment.Greece held infections low during the first COVID-19 wave in Europe, with just hundreds of cases and dozens of deaths. However, starting at the end of October, cases and deaths began to spike. As of Nov. 29, Greece, whose population is just over 10 million, has 104,722 cases and 2,321 deaths, according to the Worldometer website.Videos and pictures, as posted on the PAME website and Flickr albums, show that the Nov. 26 protests complied with proper COVID-19 precautions. Protesters were masked and, except those carrying banners, observed proper distances.PAME is calling on all workers to react to the government and employer attack, to leave no one out of this struggle, to dismiss all fear, intimidation and pessimism and let the strike message reach everywhere, every workplace! ( November before the general strike, a struggle broke out around commemorating the 1973 occupation of Athens Polytechnic University. At that time,  a coalition of students and workers was protesting the military dictatorship led by army colonels, who had acted in a U.S.-NATO plot to seize power in April 1967.The military used tanks then to crush the university occupation, which had gained a tremendous amount of popular support. The reaction to this massacre led to the fall of the Colonels’ dictatorship in 1974.The commemoration of the Polytechnic occupation has drawn thousands of supporters in past years, but the current right-wing government tried to ban the traditional march from the Polytechnic to the U.S. embassy. A coalition of the social-democratic Syriza, which led the government from 2015 until July last year, the Greek Communist Party (KKE) and Mera25, founded by former finance minister Yannis Varoufakis, put up such a storm of protest that even the conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotaki had to lay a wreath at the Polytechnic.Greek workers continue to protest for their rights and lives despite the reactionary regime and the pandemic.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Draw your Hero is based on the theme “Not all superheroes wear capes”, inspired by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s March address to the nation and is open to children aged between 6 and 14 years old across Ireland. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The competition will run from April 8th – June 2nd , with judging taking place from June 3rd – August 3rd, 2020.Lunn is encouraging children to submit artwork of the superhero in their lives, whether it’s their parent who’s a medical professional on the frontline, their sibling who’s keeping shelves stocked in our local supermarkets, or their grandparent who is social distancing. Lunn explains, “Heroes come in many forms and this competition is a way to inspire and share children’s creative flair, while also acknowledging the heroes who are taking incredible action and standing strong in the face of adversity.“In short, it could be anyone in your daily life or community who deserves a thank-you for everything they are doing in these difficult times.” Lunn said.  The competition will run across four age categories: i) 6-7 years old; ii) 8-9 years old; iii) 10-11 years old and iv) 12-14 years old.Participants must submit their artwork in A4 or A3, alongside a 200 word description or a 30 second video outlining why they’ve chosen their hero and what makes them so special.Pictures can have serious or fun themes and the more colour the better. With prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and the winners, and their artwork, will also be showcased to the nation in a special segment on Virgin Media Television’s Ireland AM.“Not all superheroes wear capes, some wear scrubs and gowns”. This sentence from the Taoiseach’s address resonated with Lunn who set to work building the competition from this statement, to highlight the many different professions and people who are working tirelessly to bring Ireland through this time.“I, like many others, have been humbled by the efforts of our fellow country men, women and children in the past few weeks and in my own small way wish to recognise their efforts”.Following the Draw your Hero competition, there will be an exhibition of the children’s work and a special awards night to acknowledge every part our superheroes are playing in getting Ireland through this crisis.The Head of the Limerick School of Art and Design, Mike Fitzpatrick, has offered the college gallery for the event. Mr Fitzpatrick will also chair the judging panel with more judges being announced in the coming weeks.To learn more about the Draw Your Hero competition, visit the website at Facebook Twitter Linkedin WhatsApp Previous articleHelp Kids With Cancer Overcome Obstacles With an Obstacle Course at Home #Obstacles4PlayNext articleSVP calls on phone and internet companies to follow lead of energy suppliers in halting disconnections during Covid-19 crisis Meghann Scully Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash last_img read more
