Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. I’ve long believed that buying shares in easyJet (LSE: EZJ) is a great idea given the company’s dominant role in the fast-expanding budget air travel segment. My optimism went up a notch or several, following the release of splendid trading numbers from industry rival Ryanair last week. I reckon the FTSE 100 flyer could also give its investors a lot to shout about with the release of first-quarter financials on Tuesday, 21 January.In that recent release Ryanair said that it had enjoyed a “stronger than expected Christmas and New Year travel period,” with forward bookings up 1% for between January and April. And as a consequence the Irish flyer upgraded its after-tax profit estimate of €800m to €900m for the fiscal year ending March quite considerably, to between €950m and €1.05bn.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…Getting betterIt’s clear that the low-cost carriers are benefitting from the demise of several of their industry rivals in recent times, the most recent being Thomas Cook towards the back end of last year. And what’s more, with the competition over who can offer the lowest fares raging on, and more recently oil prices rising again on the opening of a new rift between US and Iran, it’s possible that the number of operators could become a lot thinner over the short-to-medium term.City analysts certainly believe that trading conditions are getting better and better for easyJet, too. They expect the orange-liveried flyer to record an 8% annual earnings rise for the fiscal period to September 2020, and that an even-better 15% profits increase will happen in financial 2021.The number crunchers steadily upgraded their forecasts during the course of 2019 and it’s possible that more improvements will transpire once those first-quarter trading numbers come out later this month. Last time out in November easyJet said that capacity increases had helped revenues jump 8.3% in the last fiscal year, to €6.4bn, and that forward bookings for the first half of this period were “reassuring” and “slightly ahead of last year.”Dividend resurrectionThe airline is clearly a solid bet for those seeking strong earnings growth in the 2020s, in my opinion, and a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 15.5 times makes it terrific value given current broker estimates, too.But easyJet’s appeal doesn’t just end here as, despite last year’s huge dividend cut, I believe it’s a great pick for income chasers, too. Fiscal 2019’s reduced payout of 43.9p per share is expected to rise immediately to 48p in the current year before detonating to 55.1p next year. These projections create bulky yields of 3.2% and 3.7% respectively, and the business looks in good shape to meet these estimates too, with projected rewards covered 2 times by anticipated earnings and debt levels dropping.EasyJet’s share price has leapt 51% in the last six months, and I fully expect it to continue rising as we move through 2020. I’d happily by it ahead of those upcoming financials this month and hold it for years.

Rugby’s Greatest: Victor Matfield After his four-try World Cup haul against Samoa, Springboks coach Jake White said: “The way he went outside, inside underneath those people was amazing.”A master of the intercept, Habana has assembled one of the biggest collections of winner’s medals in the game. On top of the 2007 World Cup, he has won two Super Rugby titles, a Tri-Nations, two European Cups and a Top 14 title and he became the fourth South African to reach 100 caps – after Percy Montgomery, John Smit and Victor Matfield – in 2014. Montgomery didn’t know who Habana was when he walked into the Boks team room in 2004. He knows all about him now. The joint-top try scorer in RWC tournaments, alongside Jonah Lomu, with 15. Rugby’s Greatest: Bryan HabanaBryan Gary Habana was named after two footballers – Bryan Robson and Gary Bailey of Man Utd fame – but has spent more than a decade terrorising rugby defences rather than soccer ones.He has chalked up records quicker than he sprints past opponents, scoring ten tries in his first ten Tests and 15 in his first 20.We should have seen this torrent of tries coming after Habana, who was inspired by seeing the Boks win the 1995 World Cup, top-scored in the U21 World Cup in 2004 and made his Test debut the same year. Coming off the bench at Twickenham, Habana scored with his first touch and has hardly stopped since, whether playing for South Africa, the Bulls, the Stormers or Toulon in France.Eight tries at RWC 2007 helped see him crowned as IRB Player of the Year. Earlier that year he had scored the winning try in the Super 14 final for the Bulls against the Sharks in stoppage time. In 2007 Habana, who has clocked 10.2s for the 100m, raced against a cheetah as part of a conservation campaign. For once he finished as a runner-up.

Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial January 13, 2021 Find out more News August 5, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Media banned from covering local elections in two northern cities Organisation Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the Sri Lanka government’s decision on 3 August not to allow journalists into the northern cities of Vavuniya and Jaffna to cover the first local elections to be held since the defeat of the Tamil Tiger rebels earlier this year. All outsiders are being denied entry for “security” reasons.“It is unacceptable that the government should impose such a ban on nothing more than the vaguest security grounds,” Reporters Without Borders said. “As well as violating the population’s fundamental rights by preventing them from circulating freely, this measure dashes any hope of a transparent election.”The press freedom organisation added: “The government continues to violate press freedom while journalists are attacked with complete impunity, and both local and foreign newspapers are often censored. Death threats are made against local newspapers such as Uthayan and journalists continue to be killed and to disappear, but few investigations are launched and hardly any are successful. Sri Lankan journalists cannot go on working in such intolerable circumstances.” Vavuniya and Jaffna, the cities were local elections are to be held on 8 August, have a Tamil majority and are near the areas formerly held by the Tamil rebels. No one is now allowed into the cities without permission from the defence ministry.Lakshman Hulugalle, the head of the government’s security information centre, said journalists would not be able to visit the two cities and would have to rely on the information provided by the government.

iStock(NEW YORK) — The active search for Allyson Watterson, the 20-year-old Oregon woman who was last seen nearly a week ago with her boyfriend, has been suspended, officials with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office announced Saturday night.Deputy Tony Morris said his department can only search in areas where leads take them, and at this point, it was time to suspend th e search.“We don’t have any more things that are pointing us in an area to search,” he told reporters.Watterson’s mother, Misty Watterson, made an emotional plea for continued help during Saturday night’s media briefing.“Even though they are not actively searching, we will always search. Allyson, I will never stop looking for you. Never. I’ll never stop,” Misty Watterson said. “And I would like to ask everybody else to not stop looking either. She’s a very special girl and she deserves to be looked for.”Officials with the sheriff’s office said the investigation into Watterson’s disappearance remains active and will continue until they know what happened to her.Authorities said Watterson was last seen on Sunday, Dec. 22, by a local homeowner. It was not until 30 hours later on Monday, Dec. 23, that she was reported missing by her boyfriend’s father.Her boyfriend, 21-year-old Benjamin Garland, has not been charged in her disappearance nor has he been named a suspect — but he has been charged with various unrelated crimes this week.Garland initially claimed the couple was hiking in a wooded area near North Plains, about 18 miles northwest of Portland, but officials said Friday they don’t believe that was the case.“We do not believe that they were out in this area to hike,” Washington County Sheriff’s Detective Mark Povolny told reporters Friday night. “How and why they ended up in this area is one of those things we are looking into.”Povolny said that investigators were concerned about the 30 hours it took Garland to report Watterson missing, and were investigating where she might have been during that time.“As we’ve said before, that is concerning to us,” Povolny said during Saturday night’s press conference. “[There are] just so many possibilities, and we don’t want to speculate on what those might [be].”The search for Watterson covered 1,600 acre and thousands of man hours, officials said.

By Rick JensenNational Review magazine’s “Conservatives Against Trump” issue is this election year’s boldest collection of thoughtful columns articulating what some of us have considered for quite awhile to be Trump’s big, phony political adventure.It is quite a relief for those of us who have recognized “The Donald” early on as an authoritarian liberal choosing to identify as a conservative for political gain that others recognize this fact.Among the 21 conservatives and one libertarian invited to participate, certain themes converged.Trump has always been a liberal. He supports partial birth abortion. He enthusiastically supported President Obama’s failed “stimulus” scheme and “cash for clunkers” as serious policy.Obama himself chortled at wasting hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars, joking, “I guess ‘shovel ready’ was not as ‘shovel ready’ as we expected.”Upon hearing Obama utter these words, fellow travelers at the meeting of his ironically named “Council on Jobs and Competitiveness” fell into laughter as though on cue in some demented comedy.The United States does not need another eight years of such “comedy.”The National Review writers converged separately upon Trump’s eagerness to violate Constitutional restraint on eminent domain, his ignorance of powerful players leading international terrorist organizations, his enthusiasm for engaging in an unwinnable tariff war with China and the uber-liberal concept that the government “can take over companies, and, frankly, take big chunks of companies.”Donald Trump believes in bigger government having more control over your life and would expand the power of the executive branch, exercising more executive orders, actions and Presidential memoranda to push through his desires as has Barack Obama.Donald Trump has often pontificated on his love for single payer health insurance, quoted in the Review by Erick Erickson as, “…I’m going to take care of everybody. . . . The government’s gonna pay for it.”That sentence is more appropriate to a Bernie Sanders running-mate than a leading candidate for the Republican Party nomination.He is being seen at last by more and more observers as a phony, spewing populist slogans and hurling meaningless insults, like saying, “No one likes Ted Cruz.”Unrelated stories in various publications are now quoting establishment Republicans saying they prefer Donald Trump over Cruz because Trump is more malleable. His lack of political experience is greatly exceeded by his lack of political leadership and these Washington, D.C. “insiders” believe they can bend Trump to their desires.They probably can.These “insiders” are lobbyists and consultants who make a living convincing Republicans to do the bidding of their clients and Democrats.They believe Trump will need them to help him make policy decisions just as establishment Republicans like John Boehner needed them.He will.Ted Cruz is not so malleable.Trump has recently demonstrated his willingness to “make a deal” that serves him better than the people he supposedly wishes to lead.In Iowa, Trump doubled down on ethanol mandates, a bloated, failed crony government scheme that has been rejected by conservatives en masse, recognizing its grand economic failure.Why?Because his leading rival, Ted Cruz, garnered enthusiastic applause and genuine respect from Iowans when he publicly maintained his honest position against the wasted billions of dollars in ethanol mandates at last year’s Iowa Ag Summit.Then, Iowa’s Republican Governor spoke out against Cruz, calling for him to be defeated.Trump leapt at the opportunity to pander to caucusing Iowans, saying the federal government needs to spend even more money it can extract from taxpayers on the failing ethanol program, filling the pockets of Iowa political activists who he hopes will encourage fellow Iowans to vote for him.This is the real Trump: the pandering populist political performer.I now have a request for the editors at The National Review.Will they please repeat this winning format featuring the scandalous and criminal behaviors of Hillary Clinton?FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
