Forget coronavirus penny stocks! I think there’s an easier way to get rich

first_imgForget coronavirus penny stocks! I think there’s an easier way to get rich The massive rebound in markets over the past few months has seen a lot of new investors signing up for a slice of the action. And who can really blame them when you have many coronavirus-related penny stocks multi-bagging in value?Is this an easy route to riches? Probably not, and here’s why.  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…The problem with penny stocksNow, don’t get me wrong: you certainly can become very wealthy if you buy the right minnows at the right time. But there’s the rub – identifying penny share winners and timing your purchases early enough is fiendishly difficult given the huge number of factors that determine whether a company succeeds or not. A potentially great business doesn’t always translate to a great investment. As well as being hard to sort the wheat from the chaff, those wanting to invest in this part of the market must also be aware of how ‘illiquid’ penny stocks can be. Liquidity means how easy it is to buy or sell something without affecting its price. Illiquidity can be great when the herd wants to buy (causing shares to jump) but a nightmare when everyone sprints to the exit. Forced sellers must often accept prices that, in normal circumstances, they would laugh at. The huge volatility seen in penny stocks is worth remembering right now. It would be wrong to assume that many of those coronavirus-linked stocks that have soared over the past few months won’t suddenly tumble in value. This may be due to another broad market crash, traders banking profits, or news that the products they supply are no longer needed or ineffective.It doesn’t stop there with penny stock drawbacks. Young companies, particularly those in high-risk, high-reward sectors, often need to tap the market for more cash just to keep the lights on. Sadly, this isn’t always forthcoming and many are forced to fold, making the shares worthless.  Make no mistake, penny stocks can make you rich but they’re also far more likely to leave you poor.A better solutionRather than attempt to find the needle in a haystack, there are other, safer ways of tapping into healthcare or biotechnology.For the former, you could always buy a FTSE 100 juggernaut like AstraZeneca or GlaxoSmithKline. For the latter, you can buy active funds that specialise in this part of the market. Two of the most popular are Biotech Growth Trust (LSE: BIOG) and International Biotechnology Trust (LSE: IBT). Another option is to buy passive funds that focus on these themes. Like their active equivalents, these give instant diversification to holders by investing in a large number of stocks. And since they’re only out to track rather than beat indexes, the fees are a lot lower.Examples include the iShares Healthcare Innovation UCITS ETF. The iShares Ageing Population UCITS ETF, which gives exposure to companies providing products and services to those in their golden years (many of which will be healthcare-related), is also worth considering. Both funds have ongoing charges of just 0.4%. Bottom lineA punt on coronavirus-related penny stocks might make you rich but there’s a very real chance it will go wrong. If you’re tempted, I’d suggest only using money you can afford to lose. Put the majority of your capital to work in far less risky options.  Paul Summers | Saturday, 13th June, 2020 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.

Montenegro appeal court quashes Jovo Martinović’s 18-month jail sentence

The appeal court in the capital, Podgorica, ruled on 24 October that the prosecution failed to prove that Martinović committed any crime or to produce enough hard evidence to justify a prison sentence, and that the credibility of the high court’s conclusions was therefore in doubt. His retrial is expected to start within a few weeks. Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says RSF_en A specialist in covering organized crime for such leading international media as The Economist, Financial Times, NPR and the BBC, Martinović was convicted on the two charges on 15 January despite overwhelming evidence that his only links with organized crime were those of a reporter preparing TV documentaries.

Court orders journalist’s provisional release after more than a year in detention

first_img October 7, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Court orders journalist’s provisional release after more than a year in detention News Reporters Without Borders hails the order for the provisional release of journalist Moussa Kaka that was issued by a Niamey appeal court today. The director of privately-owned Radio Saraounia and Niger correspondent of Radio France Internationale and Reporters Without Borders, Kaka has spent the past 384 days in detention.“This good news is, we hope, the first stage in a process that will quickly lead to a just and honourable outcome,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We share the relief of Moussa Kaka’s family, who have displayed courage and dignity ever since his arrest. After 384 days in detention, our friend, Moussa Kaka, has the right to see this long ordeal come to an end.” The court ruled today that the charges against Kaka should be changed to “actions liable to harm the national defence” and that the case should be sent before a criminal court. At the same time, the court issued an order for his provisional release from Niamey prison, where he has been held since 26 September 2007.Kaka was greeted by family, friends and fellow journalists as he left the prison. “I am relieved and I want to thank all those who thought of me during this past year,” he told Reporters Without Borders a few minutes after arriving at his home in the early afternoon.The court’s ruling said: “The charges are amended to violation of the integrity of national territory in agreement with members of the MNJ (rebels), offences that are defined and punished by article 80 of the criminal code. The court orders his transfer before a Niamey criminal court to be tried according to the law. It also orders Moussa Kaka’s provincial release.”Today’s decision was the result of an appeal by the prosecutor’s office against a decision by Niamey’s senior investigating judge on 23 July – after questioning Kaka on the substance of the case in two hearings – to dismiss the charge of “complicity in a conspiracy against state authority” originally brought against him, which carried a possible life sentence.In its appeal, the prosecutor’s office had called for Kaka to be prosecuted on the lesser charge of “actions liable to harm the national defence,” which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a heavy fine.When the authorities arrested Kaka in September of last year, the public prosecutor claimed that the phone calls he had made in the course of his reporting with one of the leaders of the Niger Movement for Justice (MNJ), a Tuareg rebel group based in the north of the county, were evidence of “conniving” with the rebels.

This is the final judgement in the CFPB’s 2014 case, which accused The Mortgage Law Group LLP, Consumer First Legal Group LLC and their founding partners of scamming struggling homeowners into paying illegal upfront fees for mortgage assistance legal help that wasn’t delivered as promised.Law360 reports that U.S. District Judge William Conley ordered the payments on November 4, and puts the former firms and their principals on the hook for paying various pieces of a combined $21.7 million in restitution to consumers, most of which TMLG was already ordered to pay in 2017 as part of a stipulated agreement resolving its part of the case.The judgment also orders civil penalties totaling nearly $37.3 million for CFLG and the individual defendants, Thomas Macey, Jeffrey Aleman, Jason Searns and Harold Stafford, the bulk of which will fall on Macey, Aleman and Searns.The civil penalty amount is roughly $9 million less than what the CFPB proposed earlier this year, and Judge Conley disagreed with the date calculated used by the CFPB in working up its penalty recommendations as well as its tally of violations by each defendant. While the agency argued that each discrete regulatory violation found by the court should count toward that number, Judge Conley said such an approach “would result in excessive and duplicative penalties in this case.”“Therefore, exercising the discretion granted by the civil penalty statute and relevant case law, this court will calculate the number of violations based on the general category of each defendants’ misconduct—such as making misrepresentations or failing to make certain disclosures—rather than on subcategories for each specific type of misconduct,” the judge wrote.

Ramasubramaniam in his concurring judgment in the decision holding the mandatory nature of the provision.Though he concurred with the judgment authored by Justice RF Nariman in (Arjun Panditrao Khotkar vs Kailash Kushanrao Gorantyal) in which the court held that the certificate required under Section 65B(4) is a condition precedent to the admissibility of evidence by way of electronic record, the judge concluded his opinion as follows:”The major jurisdictions of the world have come to terms with the change of times and the development of technology and fine­tuned their legislations. Therefore, it is the need of the hour that there is a relook at Section 65B of the Indian Evidence Act, introduced 20 years ago, by Act 21 of 2000, and which has created a huge judicial turmoil, with the law swinging from one extreme to the other in the past 15 years from Navjot Sandhu to Anvar P.V. to Tomaso Bruno to Sonu to Shafhi Mohammad. “The opinion authored by Justice V. Ramasubramanian surveys legislative developments in U.S.A., U.K. and Canada on the admissibility of electronic records. He observed that jurisdictions of the world changed their legal landscape, over a period of time, by suitably amending the law, to avoid confusions and conflicts.Certificate Under Section 65B(4) Evidence Act Is A Condition Precedent To The Admissibility of Electronic Evidence: SC [Read Judgment]The judge observed that Section 65B, in its present form, is a poor reproduction of Section 5 of the UK Civil Evidence Act, 1968. “When our lawmakers passed the Information Technology Bill in the year 2000, adopting the language of Section 5 of the UK Civil Evidence Act, 1968 to a great extent, the said provision had already been repealed by the UK Civil Evidence Act, 1995 and even the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, 1984 was revamped by the 1999 Act to permit hearsay evidence, by repealing Section 69 of PACE, 1984.”, the judge said.The judge also added that development of law in the US demonstrates that, unlike in India, law has kept pace with technology to a great extent. He also noted that though a requirement similar to the one under Section 65B of Indian Evidence Act, is there in Canadian law, there is a very important distinction found in the Canadian law. “Section 31.3(b) takes care of a contingency where the electronic document was recorded or stored by a party who is adverse in interest to the party seeking to produce it. Similarly, Section 31.3(c) gives leverage for the party relying upon electronic document to establish that the same was recorded or stored in the usual and ordinary course of business by a person who is not a party and who did not record or store it under the control of the party seeking to introduce it. “, the judge noted.When A Person Refuses To Issue Certificate Under Section 65B(4) Of Evidence Act, Court Must Order Its Production :SC [Read Judgment]Acrimony behind Section 65B Answering the legal issue, the Judge noted that unlike Section 136, the Section 65B(1) starts with a non-­obstante clause excluding the application of the other provisions and it makes the certification, a precondition for admissibility. The judge said that has created lot of acrimony behind Section 65B, the judge added. He said: “While doing so, it does not talk about relevancy. In a way, Sections 65A and 65B, if read together, mix­up both proof and admissibility, but not talk about relevancy. Section 65A refers to the procedure prescribed in Section 65B, for the purpose of proving the contents of electronic records, but Section 65B speaks entirely about the preconditions for admissibility. As a result, Section 65B places admissibility as the first or the outermost check post, capable of turning away even at the border, any electronic evidence, without any enquiry, if the conditions stipulated therein are not fulfilled.”Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead Judgment Next Storylast_img read more

Swisher’s influence will continue to be felt by community

first_img Book Nook to reopen Swisher’s influence will continue to be felt by community Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “Bobbie had such a spark, such a passion that she passed on to her students that it’s like she is still with us in some small way,” Jinright said. “Her influence will be felt in many ways for years to come. She was a wonderful person and a great teacher. There was just something about “Mrs. Swisher” that made you want to work hard and be the best you could be.”Swisher was a longtime and dedicated member of the Troy Arts Council. She called Elaine Blair, chair of the TAC’s Patrons’ Drive on Thursday and asked her to come by and pick up a check for the arts council’s upcoming season of events.“Bobbie wanted to make sure the arts council had her support,” Blair said. “That was so typical of her. She was always thinking of others and never of herself. By The Penny Hoarder Print Article “Bobbie Swisher was one of the finest people I have ever known. She meant everything to me and to our community. She was the epitome of everything good.”Blair knew Swisher as a personal friend, as a patron of the arts and as a fellow church member.“Bobbie and Rhae were such a fun couple,” she said. “We went on many TAC trips together and they were a joy be around.”Swisher was active in her church, First United Methodist Church of Troy. She was a Sunday school teacher, a member of the Annie B. Green Sunday school class, the United Methodist Women and the chancel choir. She served on various church committees and participated in all church activities. Sunday was a sad day in Troy as people learned of the death of Bobbie Swisher, a beloved teacher and community member.“To live in the hearts of those you love is to never die” and no more fitting words could be said of Swisher.She will live on in the hearts of the many whose lives she touched as she journeyed through this world, said John Jinright, a former student and friend. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Published 6:32 pm Monday, July 28, 2014 “She had a strong and abiding faith,” Blair said. “I don’t know of a finer woman anywhere.”Betty Wagoner taught at Charles Henderson High School where Swisher taught English, journalism and debate.“Bobbie was one of the finest teachers Charles Henderson has ever had,” Wagoner said. “She had the debate team and they went everywhere and won all kinds of trophies. Bobbie was a fantastic teacher and the students loved her and respected her. She was always doing something for the good of the school, for others and to make our community a better place.”Wagoner said Swisher touched so many lives in so many different ways – as a teacher and as a community servant.She was also a member for the 19th Century Club, the Woman’s Club, the Troy Music Study Club and the Garden Club.Betty Spann said there was not a better club member than Swisher.“Bobbie held every office in the 19th Century Club and the Troy Music Study Club,” she said. “We taught school together at the middle school before she moved to the high school. She was an outstanding teacher and so dedicated.”Spann said Swisher was honored one year as the Woman of the Year in Troy and nobody was more deserving.“Bobbie was not originally from the South but nobody could represent Troy any better,” she said. “I never heard her say an unkind word about anybody. She always had a smile. She was a marvelous Christian lady. She is in the heavenly choir now.”center_img Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Email the author You Might Like Aster Ave. shooting leaves one in critical condition The Troy Police Department has arrested one person in connection with a Saturday night shooting.
