2 UK shares I’d buy in my Stocks and Shares ISA for the new bull market

first_img It’s too soon to say that a new bull market has started. The Covid-19 crisis rolls on and vaccine rollout problems, along with the emergence of new virus strains, could well put paid to an economic recovery. Consequently, there’s a big danger that UK share prices could turn southwards yet again.That said, I have my eye on several British stocks I think could soar in value during the economic upturn. Here are a couple on my Stocks and Shares ISA radar 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…Catalytic colossusI’m tipping platinum group metal (or PGM) producer Tharisa’s (LSE: THS) profits to rise strongly as the economic recovery takes hold. Consumer spending should rise across the board when conditions improve. Spending on cars in particular tends to rocket during the early stages of the economic cycle. This naturally bodes well for PGM-packed autocatalyst demand.Prices of Tharisa’s product might not just increase because of recovering industrial demand, however. Rising concerns over soaring inflation during the economic recovery could also push uptake of hard currencies like precious metals.There’s also the possibility that the US Federal Reserve will keep stimulus measures rolling and interest rates locked around record lows. This would have a negative impact on the US dollar. And in turn this would make it more cost effective to buy dollar-denominated commodities like the PGMs. Incidentally, the greenback just struck a three-week low against a basket of other major currencies.All that said, there’s a major threat to UK platinum-producing shares like Tharisa. Electric vehicle sales are soaring all over the globe and are predicted to keep rising. This threatens to put a dent in autocatalyst production in future years, an industry which accounts for around 40% of total platinum demand.City analysts think Tharisa’s earnings will rise 98% in 2021 though. As a result the mining giant trades on a low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 5 times. Like all forecasts, this estimate could change based on future developments. So I have to bear this in mind.A top UK tech shareA bumpy economic recovery would have huge ramifications for business investment. And this could have a significant impact on providers of IT services. That said, I don’t think demand for Kape Technologies (LSE: KAPE) services will suffer in the short-to-medium term.This is because this UK share is an expert in the field of cybersecurity, an area on which companies are obliged to spend increasing amounts. The rate of online crime is rising so rapidly, in fact, that the US Labour of Bureau Statistics reckons employment of information security analysts will balloon 31% between 2019 and 2029. This, unsurprisingly, makes it one of the fastest-growing industries in the States.It’s not all perfect, of course. City brokers reckon Kape’s annual earnings will fall fractionally in 2021. This leaves the business trading on forward P/E multiple of 21 times. That’s not the highest valuation among UK tech shares. But it’s a lofty-ish reading and therefore is a risk. It means that I could see a share price correction if trading at the company deteriorates. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Martin Luther King Jr. – A life unfinished

first_img Please enter your comment! Note – The Apopka MLK Parade begins at 2PM this afternoon. It starts at the Apopka Community Center/VFW Building at 519 South Central Avenue and ends at the John Bridges Center at 445 West 13th Street.Martin Luther King Jr. never saw the age of 40, but he lived a life that touched many and inspired a nation. His legacy will live eternally.At 33, he was pressing the case of civil rights with President John Kennedy. At 34, he galvanized the nation with his “I Have a Dream” speech. At 35, he won the Nobel Peace Prize.Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speaking. (Photo by Julian Wasser//Time Life Pictures/Getty Images).At 39, he was assassinated, but he left a legacy of hope that continues today.Any number of historic moments in the civil rights struggle have been used to identify Martin Luther King, Jr. — prime mover of the Montgomery bus boycott, keynote speaker at the March on Washington, youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate. But in retrospect, single events are less important than the fact that King, and his policy of nonviolent protest, was the dominant force in the civil-rights movement during its decade of greatest achievement, from 1957 to 1968.King was born Michael Luther King in Atlanta on Jan. 15, 1929 — one of the three children of Martin Luther King Sr., pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, and Alberta (Williams) King, a former schoolteacher. (He was renamed “Martin” when he was about 6 years old.)A national hero and a civil-rights figure of growing importance, King summoned together a number of black leaders in 1957 and laid the groundwork for the organization now known as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). King was elected its president, and he soon began helping other communities organize their own protests against discrimination.Police used dogs to quell civil unrest in Birmingham, Ala., on May 3, 1963. Birmingham’s police commissioner “Bull” Connor also allowed fire hoses to be turned on young civil rights demonstrators. These measures set off a backlash of sentiment that rejuvenated the flagging civil rights movement. (Bill Hudson / The Associated Press)Three years later, King’s nonviolent tactics were put to their most severe test in Birmingham, during a mass protest for fair hiring practices and the desegregation of department-store facilities. Police brutality used against the marchers dramatized the plight of blacks to the nation at large, with enormous impact. King was arrested, but his voice was not silenced: He wrote the “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” to refute his critics.Later that year King was a principal speaker at the historic March on Washington, where he delivered one of the most passionate addresses of his career. Time magazine designated him as its Person of the Year for 1963. A few months later he was named the recipient of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize. When he returned from Norway, where he had gone to accept the award, King took on new challenges. In Selma, Ala., he led a voter-registration campaign that ended in the Selma-to-Montgomery Freedom March. King next brought his crusade to Chicago, where he launched programs to rehabilitate the slums and provide housing.In the North, however, King soon discovered that young and angry blacks cared little for his preaching and even less for his pleas for peaceful protest. Their disenchantment was one of the reasons he rallied behind a new cause: the war in Vietnam.Although he was trying to create a new coalition based on equal support for peace and civil rights, it caused an immediate rift. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) saw King’s shift of emphasis as “a serious tactical mistake.” The Urban League warned that the “limited resources” of the civil-rights movement would be spread too thin.But he never got back to his poverty plans. Death came for King on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel just off Beale Street in Memphis. While standing outside with Jesse Jackson and Ralph Abernathy, King was shot in the neck by a rifle bullet. His death caused a wave of violence in major cities across the country.However, King’s legacy has lived on.In 1969, his widow, Coretta Scott King, organized the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change. Today it stands next to his beloved Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. His birthday, January 15th, is a national holiday, celebrated each year with educational programs, artistic displays, and concerts throughout the United States. The Lorraine Hotel where he was shot is now the National Civil Rights Museum.Note: Multiple publications contributed to this report. You have entered an incorrect email address!

Half of SAYE share schemes fail to deliver profit for staff

first_imgOfficial government figures cast doubt on the value ofoffering share schemes to employees.Personnel Today has learned that statistics collated by theInland Revenue show that in around 50 per cent of schemes employees would notbenefit immediately from exercising the option to buy company stock insave-as-you-earn share schemes. Under SAYE schemes employees have the option to buy sharesafter a specified period at a price set when they entered the scheme, orconvert their savings to cash.But the IR’s figures are understood to show that half ofschemes are “underwater”, where shares are worth less than at the start of theSAYE scheme.This is mainly the result of falling share prices amongblue-chip companies, but it also highlights a significant weakness of schemesas an employee benefit.The poor performance of SAYE schemes will also raise fearsover the viability of Gordon Brown’s plans for widespread employee shareownership.The Chancellor wants to develop more all-employee share schemesand in March’s Budget he announced lower Capital Gains Tax to encourageparticipants. But these schemes do not have the safety net in SAYE schemes andif their success followed the pattern of SAYE performance, half of allparticipants would lose money.In the US employees in a similar scheme run by food giantKellogg have seen life savings plummet in value with a 45 per cent decline inthe stock price since last year.A survey by the independent company ProShare last Novemberfound 25 per cent of company schemes underwater, but Sally Russell, head ofemployee share ownership at ProShare, said the revenue’s figures will be moreaccurate because all companies are required to submit data.Just over 300 firms took part in the ProShare survey, whilethe Inland Revenue figure is based on returns from all the 1,200 companiestaking part in the scheme.Every participant has to declare the option price and themarket price to the Inland Revenue at the end of the financial year.Mark Childs, vice-president of compensation and benefits atFidelity, advised companies to be cautious.“I am aware of a lot of old-economy share schemes beingunder water – particularly in banking, retail, consumer products andengineering. Companies need to recognise that a lot of their employees cannotafford to take the risk associated with single-company investment”. Comments are closed.
