Barclays share price: is now the time to buy this FTSE 100 share?

Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The Barclays (LSE: BARC) share price has roared back to life since the 2020 stock market crash. In fact, the FTSE 100 share has now erased all of the losses it endured following the Covid-19 outbreak. It recently struck its most expensive since December 2019, above 180p per share, in fact.Investor appetite for the bank first spiked when news of successful coronavirus vaccine testing broke last autumn. The triumphant rollout of these pandemic battlers in Britain have allowed the Barclays share price to keep soaring too.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…Yet despite its stratospheric rise I think the Barclays share price still looks really cheap on paper. City analysts think the bank’s annual earnings will soar 85% in 2021. This leaves the FTSE 100 bank trading on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. Investing theory suggests any reading below 1 indicates a UK share might be undervalued.Betting on the Barclays share priceThere are several reasons why the Barclays share price could continue to ascend too. These include:#1: Reassuring UK economic data. Banks are, of course, ultra-cyclical shares and so their fortunes are tied directly to broader economic conditions. It’s no surprise then that the Barclays share price rise has come at the same time as some key metrics, like PMI and unemployment data, in its core UK market have impressed. The good news could keep coming too as vaccine rollouts continue with great haste.#2: Solid trading at the investment bank. Income at Barclays’ Corporate and Investment Bank rocketed 22% in 2020, thanks to extreme market volatility. It’s quite possible that trading here will remain buoyant for some time yet. Certainly as the Covid-19 crisis worsens in some parts of the world and other issues such as rising inflation and trade tensions rattle investor nerves.3: Strong US economic growth. Unlike its FTSE 100 peers Lloyds and NatWest, Barclays has significant international exposure which could prove a key plank for long-term earnings growth. The bank has a hefty footprint in the world’s largest economy, the US. And it looks like GDP growth here will outstrip those of other advanced economies in 2021, helped by the recent $1.9trn stimulus plan.However…That said, there’s a couple of key reasons why I think the Barclays share price could crash again. Again, the fortunes of the banks are highly geared to the performance of the broader economy. And the outlook in the UK is packed with peril.As the experts at Hargreaves Lansdown note: “Provisions for bad debt increased dramatically earlier in the year… and we’ll only know for sure if they are sufficient when government support is withdrawn at the end of the crisis.”Revenues could also struggle if the economic bounce proves fleeting and the Covid-19 situation worsens.The probability of low interest rates persisting long into the future threatens the Barclays share price too. Rock-bottom rates have smashed the difference which the FTSE 100 banks lend at, and provide to savers, over the past decade. And the Bank of England continues to publicly flirt with sending rates negative too, a scenario that would have additional ramifications on bank profits.All things considered I’d much rather buy other cheap UK shares today.

‘Want Prayer?’ Progressive lay evangelists take church to the streets

first_img Featured Jobs & Calls The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Course Director Jerusalem, Israel From left, progressive lay evangelists Adrian Dannhauser and Matthew Lukens with their ‘Want Prayer?’ sign.[Episcopal News Service] Progressive lay evangelist Adrian Dannhauser has been known to stand on a busy Stamford, Connecticut street at lunchtime with a sign: “Want Prayer?”Sometimes she’d add a verbal invitation to those who approached. Others sometimes passed her by, slowed, turned around and returned.“You’d hear about the loss of a loved one just the day before,” she recalled during a recent telephone interview. “Or, ‘my wife is having trouble getting pregnant.’“It’s a beautiful form of evangelism,” she said, her voice breaking. “To bear witness to people’s souls is such a privilege. You’re looking to share an experience. You try to facilitate an encounter with God.“Progressive evangelism is connecting my story, your story and the great story.”The former Wall Street bankruptcy and restructuring attorney now attends Berkeley Divinity School at Yale and, along with her “partners in evangelism” Otis Gaddis III and Matthew Lukens, is among a growing number of progressive evangelists in the Episcopal Church who are taking church to the streets and the people.“You’re not trying to change anyone’s mind or belief system,” said Dannhauser, 34. “I will pray with anyone of any faith in whatever mode they’re comfortable.”Progressive evangelism, says Gaddis, now a transitional deacon and chaplain at the University of Maryland at College Park, means first and foremost, living out in a very visceral way, the baptismal promise “to seek and serve Christ in all persons and loving your neighbor as yourself.”“It assumes that Christ is already present,” Gaddis said during a recent telephone interview. “The goal is not to bring people to church but to reveal the presence of church between you and the person you’re talking to.”It can be as simple as striking up a conversation with the person beside him in line, or on an airplane, or in a café — something he has done many times.“To be a progressive evangelist means that I am ready and able and desire to hear someone else’s spiritual story and their authentic being through that story and to reply with a story of my own that shows that I was really present.“Most people don’t have people to talk about that with,” said Gaddis, 32, a former lawyer. He founded the Episcopal Evangelism Network (EEN) in 2009 while a Berkeley seminarian.Initially, the organization grew out of the students’ own practice of getting together and creating a safe place to share their own personal experiences of God, their spiritual stories.“We built a lot of pastoral care skills in a lot of ways, we started hearing each other in a way we didn’t anticipate. We became the community, we discovered that the issue is that we don’t talk to each other about stuff that really matters, including our spiritual matters,” he said.By May 2010 the EEN had spread to the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California. Presently there are chapters at the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas, at the General Theological Seminary in New York, and at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria. Gaddis hopes EEN will have a presence at all the Episcopal seminaries and also to involve laity and clergy in creating new Episcopal spiritual communities.The EEN is convening a missional development conference Sept. 20-22 at the General Theological Seminary, aiming to equip leaders in the church to develop spiritual communities, and to witness to and share the image of God in one another, engage people and communities across lines of difference, and form missional leaders who can nurture others’ pursuit of their authentic vocation, Gaddis said.The conference is sponsored by: the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale; Episcopal Young Adult and Campus Ministries; and the dioceses of Connecticut, Long Island, Maryland, Newark, Washington and Virginia.Progressive evangelism is part of Matthew Lukens authentic vocation; he spent much of the summer giving away lemonade and engaging passersby in conversation on the steps of the Cathedral of St. Paul in Boston.He served as an intern with The Crossing, an emergent worship community of St. Paul’s.“The goal was to try and create a moment where people could stop and have this different thing encounter them in their day, to simply have a conversation with someone and give them something, usually lemonade. Also water. We wanted to know who they were, how they were doing and how far we could get into that conversation with them.”Lukens, 25, was raised Southern Baptist in Alabama and is well aware of the connotations the word “evangelist” can evoke. “In some traditions it is the job of the evangelist to transform you into being my way. But in progressive evangelism, I need to have an openness to being transformed because other people are bringing God’s light to the conversation in the way they’ve experienced it.”He recalled, laughing, that after his first “want prayer” street experience with Gaddis and Dannhauser, he realized that “it took the Episcopal Church to get this former Southern Baptist out on a street corner praying for people.”Progressive evangelism is not, however, about converting or getting people to church, he said.“To me, progressive evangelism is primarily a posture toward encountering other people. I think of it as a spiritual practice. The opportunity to go deeply into conversation with other people, to hear their passions, where do they hear God speaking to them, whether or not they become an Episcopalian. Those conversations get at precious places in our lives that I find people don’t have an opportunity to share.”Mostly, it is about forming spiritual community. “It’s something people are also hungry for,” he added. “One hears about the large number of people that don’t identify with any religion or say they’re spiritual but not religious, but the thing that’s always missing in those places is a community to have that conversation.”Gaddis agreed. “Your listening ears become the soil for the word that is already there,” he said of the spiritual conversations. “And it’s fun, because you’re watching people literally become alive in front of your face, and that’s what church can be.”Bishop Eugene Sutton has commissioned a lay evangelist in the Diocese of Maryland, Buddy Coffey.He had been in the discernment process but had concluded that, “ordained ministry was not for me,” said Coffey, 62, a former engineer.But Sutton recognized Coffey’s “extraordinary gifts in introducing the gospel to people,” and commissioned him to serve as a lay evangelist, teaching, preaching and writing about evangelism, as well as engaging others in spiritual conversation and how to communicate their faith to others.“I’d like to commission more lay evangelists,” Sutton said during a recent telephone interview. “For one thing, it helps the whole church, it helps individuals, because a number of these individuals are seeking a way for the church to recognize their gifts and even support them in some way, even if not financially. It could ease the pressure we have on the ordination process.”Coffey describes his vocation as being a lively witness who proclaims by word and example the good news of God in Christ. “People always ask, ‘what’s this about?’ It lets me begin a conversation that may or may not lead to a spiritual conversion.”In Southern California, Randy Kimmler “unintentionally” helped plant the Community of the Holy Spirit in the Silver Lake district of the Diocese of Los Angeles about six years ago. Mostly, he just listened to the Holy Spirit, he said.“It’s not a church. It’s not a mission. It’s an anomaly and dioceses around the country are trying to figure out what to do with groups like us that are springing up all over the place,” he said during a recent telephone interview.The Community of the Holy Spirit (CHS) “started off as a Lenten study group for about six or seven lay people,” he recalled.It was so much fun that they wanted to continue after Lent. And they wanted to add Eucharist. A local priest celebrated and “then we said, ‘why don’t we keep doing this?’” Kimmler recalled.Lay-organized and led, the group is considered an emergent progressive Christian community, he said during an August 28 telephone interview.CHS continues to meet regularly on Thursday evenings in a space above a local restaurant. “We call it the Lord’s Supper in three courses. The first thing we do is offer them bread and wine.”The first course is a gathering time, with beverages and hors d’oeuvres, fellowship and conversation. Newcomers are greeted and introduced to the group by those with whom they’ve been speaking.The second course includes hearing the word, a five-minute response or reflection to it, followed by time for sharing by group members. A priest — from an established rota of about 20 — celebrates the Eucharist.The final course “is dessert. We clear the altar and set it up with dessert and people can stay and talk as long as they want,” Kimmler said.The group’s evangelism is also unique — by sharing their space for monthly art exhibits featuring the work of local musicians, writers, sculptors and painters, he said.Kimmler will be presenting a workshop at the EEN about church planting by the laity.–The Rev.

Tom Swift says: Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS September 2, 2012 at 2:26 pm Neither Jesus (“Go and make disciples of all nations”) nor Paul (“I preach Christ and him crucified”) would recognize this as evangelism. Christian evangelism is sharing the good news that sin and death have been overcome by the death and resurrection of Jesus. “Changing peoples’ minds and belief systems” is exactly the point! Such good news must be spoken with great love and respect for the other person’s values and beliefs, but it must be spoken to be evangelism.

After being named a candidate and going through a rigorous 7 rounds of interviews, I asked Muhlenkamp if he thought being named president was even possible for him.“I don’t really know, I mean, it’s been something that I’ve always shot for but I didn’t really know it could happen until it just did.”He says his number one goal this year in office is to stand united with agriculture.“I think it’s just important to bring agriculture together as a whole. Right now, with different times coming, we need to be able to come together as a united front with agriculture and able to present ourselves as a united front because if we don’t, then different groups will be able to attack us and then that will not be good for the whole of agriculture within the state of Indiana.”As for what the next year holds for him, he’s pretty excited.“We’ll be working down at the state fair. Please come visit us! We’ll go on industry tours, visit with business leaders, host camps down at our leadership center in Trafalgar, Indiana, as well as visit local chapters throughout the entire state.”In addition to Muhlenkamp, the following officers were also announced.Secretary: Caitlyn Lewis, Frontier FFANorth Region Vice President: Morgan Hinz, South Central FFASouth Region Vice President: Nathan Fairchild, South Decatur FFATreasurer: Noah Berning, Heritage FFAReporter: Taylor Roy, Franklin FFASentinel: Eion Stephens, Tecumseh FFA By Eric Pfeiffer – Jun 20, 2019 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Jay County’s Muhlenkamp New Indiana FFA President SHARE Jay County’s Muhlenkamp New Indiana FFA Presidentlast_img read more

first_imgThis report is the first seasonal study of anthropogenic pollutant biodegradation rates in Antarctic coastal waters. The capacity of surface waters from Rothera Research Station, Adelaide Island, Antarctica, to biodegrade the anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) was quantified in biodegradation tests from April 1988 to January 1999. Large temporal differences in the persistence of SIDS were observed. In mid-winter (July), the SDS-biodegradation half life was twice that measured in mid-summer (January), despite small temperature differences (up to 2.45 degreesC). Comparisons between water from a pristine site and a site receiving grey-waste water from the station showed that some acclimation to SDS was occurring in the contaminated water. This resulted in SDS half lives up to similar to80 h shorter in the polluted water compared with the pristine site in the summer months when a large population of SDS-degrading bacteria had developed. Biodegradation half lives in Antarctic coastal waters (160-460 h) were generally far higher than those observed in temperate waters.last_img read more
