This FTSE 100 stock has soared since 2020. Here’s what I’d do now Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.center_img Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. As I write these words, Flutter Entertainment (LSE: FLTR) is leading the FTSE 100 with the biggest price rise on the day. The only recent news I can see concerns the use of credit cards. Flutter has suspended their use in the UK for gambling transactions, and will extend that to Ireland from April. That should help rein-in problem gambling, and hopefully make the firm look good in the eyes of regulators.Shares in Flutter, previously known as Paddy Power Betfair, are up 4% on the day at the time of writing. That’s twice the gain of second-placed International Consolidated Airlines, up 2%. But daily price movements mean very little to me, so what’s the longer-term picture looking like?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…Over the past 12 months, covering the Covid-19 pandemic period, the Flutter share price has gained 59%. At the same time, the FTSE 100 is down 10.5%. As people can’t go out to pubs to burn through their cash that way, are more and more turning to online gambling to while away the lockdown hours? It does seem likely.Long-term horizonBut even a 12-month share price movement means little in the greater scheme of things. And those investing for the long term to fund their retirements, like me, will surely be looking at five-year and 10-year horizons and beyond. Flutter shares are up 137% since early 2020. And, over the past decade, they have soared by more than 500%. Will that happen again? Should I stash Flutter shares in my ISA today?It’s the kind of growth I expect to see with small-cap hot growth stocks. But for a FTSE 100 share with a market capitalisation of £25bn, well, let’s just say it’s not an everyday occurrence.But the past is not what counts when it comes to investing in shares. What I’m interested in is the future, and that’s a lot harder to predict. So what’s the valuation looking like?Analysts are expecting earnings growth for Flutter this year. But we’re looking at P/E multiples of around 40. That’s close to three times the FTSE 100’s long-term average (which is closer to 14). Sometimes a growth stock genuinely warrants a premium rating like that. I currently hold Boohoo shares, for example, and they’ve often far exceeded Flutter’s P/E levels. But it’s rare for a FTSE 100 stock to sustain such a high valuation.FTSE 100 growth prospectsThe real question is about Flutter’s long-term growth prospects. The company is in its early days of expansion into the USA. And I do think there are some tasty opportunities there. So on the one hand, I’m drawn by what I see as a genuine long-term growth stock.But my big problem is the current Flutter share price valuation. The market, I think, is valuing Flutter too heavily on its short-term performance. And that has been boosted by the pandemic lockdown. What will happen when we’re all free again? I expect a fair bit of cash will be diverted away from gambling and back towards drinking and other social activities.Flutter Entertainment might appeal to younger investors with more appetite for risk. And it might have appealed to a younger me too. But the older me is saving the investment cash for stocks I see as less risky.

first_imgThe following is a reprint of an April 16, 2008, commentary from the youth group Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) on the eve of the April 19, 2008, march and rally in Philadelphia to demand the freedom of Mumia Abu-Jamal.There is a man in the state of Pennsylvania who has a street in France named after him. That man is Mumia Abu-Jamal, a journalist and ex-member of the Black Panther Party — an organization classified as “terrorist” by the U.S. government. A former Black Panther, Mumia is now in his 26th year on Pennsylvania’s death row.Mumia is a hero to Black youth and all people seeking liberation. The “voice of the voiceless,” he chronicles the legacies of people’s struggles worldwide. One of the greatest threats to U.S. imperialism is the uprising of “young Mumias” from the streets of Philadelphia to the streets of Paris.At the age of 15, Mumia joined the Black Panther Party in Philadelphia, one of the most racist and repressive cities in the country. He became the lieutenant of information for the Philadelphia chapter and later worked with the New York and Oakland chapters. Mumia performed a variety of duties, ranging from selling the Black Panther newspaper to armed security duty.With his fellow Panthers, Mumia was a leader in the Black Liberation struggle of the late 1960s and earlier 1970s, which was demanding the right of Black people to self-determination, self-defense and, ultimately, complete liberation.Since his time in the BPP, Mumia has dedicated his life to the education and liberation of Black people in the U.S. and across the world. He is a journalist and was integral in calling media attention to the attacks of the Philadelphia Police Department on local Black Panthers and the MOVE organization, including the 1985 bombing of the MOVE compound. In that act of state terrorism, 11 Black people died, including four children.Is this man not a hero? Is Mumia not a freedom fighter? Why are there no holidays for him and other leaders of the Black Liberation struggle? Did he not dedicate his life to the liberation of the most oppressed?In history, the word “hero” has been used to define a variety of people. The men considered to be the “founding fathers” of the United States are often referred to as heroes, but it is undisputed that these men were active in racist institutions, including slavery.George Washington owned slaves and at one point had teeth removed from the mouths of slaves in order to have them implanted in his own jaw. Thomas Jefferson raped Sally Hemings, a teenage slave he owned, said to be his wife’s half sister. In 1858, Abraham Lincoln, the man credited with emancipating Black people from slavery, stated the following: “While they [Black people and white people] do remain together there must be a position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”These three men, along with many other wealthy white men in U.S. history, have been labeled heroes. Youth and students across the country are taught daily that they are the type of people we should celebrate. Their histories of racism, sexism, capitalism and heterosexism are covered up and the mass murder and displacement they are responsible for is called the establishment of the United States.But those are the oppressor’s heroes. Who are ours? Who are the heroes of people of color, women, lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender and queer folks and the working masses? One of them is definitely Mumia Abu-Jamal.In 1981, Mumia was framed for the murder of Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to execution. The U.S. government, the Fraternal Order of Police and the racist mainstream media have waged a campaign against Mumia for 27 years, portraying him as a terrorist and a murderer. But the people’s struggle has kept him alive.The negative portrayal of Mumia and the Black Liberation movement as a whole is an aspect of the overall war against Black people, specifically Black youth. Like the omission from the history books of the 1935 Wiley College debate team, recently portrayed in the film “The Great Debaters,” the criminalization of Mumia is a deliberate attempt to erase the contributions of Blacks in the United States.Combined with disproportionate military recruitment and incarceration, as well as the blatant murders of Black youth by the state, the eradication of Black Liberation history is a strategic tool in the oppression of Black people. Cases like the Jena 6, the Jersey 4, the state murders of Sean Bell and Amadou Diallo, as well as the case of John White, are all a part of the attack on Black people and our basic human right to self-defense. One must ask: Why is it that when people of color are forced to defend ourselves, it is considered by the state to be an unheroic, criminal act?The Black Panther Party of the 1960s and 1970s and Mumia Abu-Jamal are our heroes and revolutionaries. They are the leaders of our national liberation. We as youth, especially Black youth, see the BPP as proof of Black agency in history, in opposition to the education we receive that portrays Black people as a historically passive people.Though many of us can name Mumia as our hero, there are far too many of us who have no idea who he is and what he has contributed to human history. It is a product of the state’s attempted eradication of all liberation movements fighting against U.S. imperialism, specifically those led by people of color.In the words of Mumia: “I’m fighting every day, not just for my freedom, not just for my liberation, but for all of our liberation. Unabashedly I’ll fight for revolution because I think revolution is our only solution. I’m not shy about using that word.”Mumia: father, grandfather, journalist, freedom fighter, visionary, revolutionary. Mumia is not just a hero but a flame-sparker and we are the Inheritors of the Fire.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


first_imgHome Energy Ethanol Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions SHARE Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for January 13, 2016Next articleThe Next Big Thing is Very Small Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jan 12, 2017 Corn ethanol achieves a 43 percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions when compared to the 2005 baseline for gasoline, according to a new analysis released today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Based on current trends in crop production and ethanol production efficiency, the study projected that by 2022, corn-based ethanol will achieve a 50 percent reduction in GHG emissions compared to the gasoline baseline. The study was conducted by ICF International.Today’s announcement reaffirms the importance of ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard, said National Corn Growers Association President Wesley Spurlock, a farmer from Stratford, Texas.“Ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard are a true American success story. Corn farmers and ethanol producers are using less energy than ever before to produce cost-effective, clean and renewable fuel for consumers across the country and around the world. Today, USDA has reaffirmed what we already know: ethanol does more than just save consumers money at the gas pump, it’s also better for the environment.”The report also demonstrates the added GHG benefits of on-farm conservation practices including reduced tillage, nitrogen stewardship and cover crops-the same practices promoted by NCGA’s Soil Health Partnership Ethanol Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissionslast_img read more

A single Bench of Justice Pratibha Singh has issued the directions in a petition filed by three animal lovers, who give care to and feed the street dogs in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi, against the Residents Welfare Association for creating hindrances in feeding the street dogs as also in taking care of them. The High Court has directed the parties involved in the case, including the Animal Welfare Board of India, Petitioners, office bearers of the Residents Welfare Association to identify a spot to be used for the purpose of feeding and taking care of street dogs etc. Once the spot is decided, the dogs are to be fed only on that spot and no hindrance is to be created in doing the same. During the hearing before the Delhi High Court, Advocate Abhik Chimni appearing for the Petitioners submitted that whenever the Petitioners try to feed the street dogs, enormous resistance is caused by the local residents and various complaints and messages, have also been exchanged between the parties. Advocate S.K. Pandey, appearing for the Residents Welfare Association submitted that an according to a 2009 order of the Delhi High Court in the case of Citizen for the welfare and protection of Animals and Anr. v. State and Anr, a specified spot is to be identified by the parties and the street dogs are to be fed by the Petitioners in those identified sites. The Court observed that through its order in 2009 in the case Citizen for the Welfare and protection of Animals and Anr. v. State, the court had clearly given directions to the Animal Welfare Board of India, in consultation with the Resident Welfare Associations, to identify suitable spots and sites in the colonies for the feeding of street dogs. In its order, the Court had stated that in each colony of Delhi, AWBI would identify, in consultation with Residents Welfare Association, Area SHO and the Animal Welfare Organization working in that area, the spots or sites e most suitable for the purpose of feeding dogs. The purpose of feeding dogs is to keep them confined to a particular place, so as to subject them to sterilization, vaccination and re-vaccination, as the vaccination does not last more than one year. The Animal Welfare Board was directed to identify suitable sites in the colonies, subject matter of the case, within four weeks and to cover as many more colonies as it can during that period. The Delhi Police in the meantime was asked to ensure that no harm was caused to the volunteers of Animal Welfare Organizations feeding dogs in these localities provided that they feed them only during hours to be specified by Animal Welfare Board. The Court had added that as soon as suitable sites for feeding the 41 dogs were identified, these organizations would feed dogs only on those identified sites and at hours specified by Animal Welfare Board. The High Court in the present case observed that even after directions were issued in the 2009 order, that there has been no consensus in identifying the suitable spot and the Residents Welfare Association has apprehensions since children and senior residents also roam around in the open area of the block, for their own recreation. The Residents of the area also have grave concerns towards the safety of the children and others who live in the area, and therefore the residents and the members of the RWA and the Petitioners have to act in harmony with each other and not in a manner which will lead to unpleasant circumstances in the colony. The High Court has therefore asked the Animal Welfare Board of India to hold a meeting in Vasant Kunj on 8th March with the Petitioners and RWA office bearers and the residents and identify a spot, which is not used by children, senior citizens and other residents, to be used for the purpose of feeding and taking care of street dogs etc. The Court has directed the Petitioners to feed and take care of the street dogs at that particular decided spot, and no hindrance is to be caused to the Petitioners in carrying out any activities in respect of the street dogs at the said spot. The SHO of area concerned has also been asked to be present at the meeting between the RWA, Petitioners and representatives of AWBI and ensure that peace and harmony is maintained amongst the residents of the area so that no harassment is caused to the Petitioners by RWA and vice versaClick Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

He won the talent portion of the competition with the song.A career salesman who still works as an independent contractor in a courier business, Sakas also won the “poise and composure” category in the  pageant. He lives with his wife, Terry.Other winners on Saturday night included:First runner up: Joel Fogel, 70, of Somers Point, N.J.Second runner up: Tom Greeley, 66, of Manchester, N.J.Interview: FogelOn-stage question: FogelCongeniality: GreeleyThe pageant attracted an estimated 300 to 400 people — about the same as last year, according to Soifer.A highlight of the show was a performance by a pair of “mature” musicians and a backup band: Herb “Bubba Mac” Birch and 91-year-old former Bill Haley and the Comets drummer Dick Richards._____Sign up for free e-mail updates on Ocean City news._____Ocean City historian, author and former Ocean City Beach Patrol veteran Fred Miller was given the pageant’s Inspiration  Award for his contributions and achievements.Ruth Eni, the chief executive Dietz and Watson, who recently celebrated her 90th birthday, was recognized for her contributions to Ocean City events, including the annual Doo Dah Parade.
