If you have, say, £1k or £2k to invest, and are happy buying individual company stocks, then you are spoilt for choice with the FTSE 100 at the moment.Long-term viewFollowing recent dips, the index of top UK blue-chip stocks is packed with top companies trading at bargain valuations.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…Stock markets are always volatile, and this year investors have been worrying about the US-China trade war, stand-off with Iran, and now the coronavirus. However, if you are investing for the long-term, by which I mean anything up to 50 years, you can afford to ignore these short-term ups and downs.Personally, I’m attracted to solid companies selling products that ordinary people will need far into future, and by that yardstick, I think you will struggle to do better than buy household goods giant Reckitt Benckiser Group (LSE: RB) inside a tax-free Stocks and Shares ISA.It offers a stream of everyday brands, many of which you are likely to find in your own kitchen and bathroom. We’re talking about Dettol, Strepsils, Airborne, Air Wick, Calgon, Clearasil, Cillit Bang, Durex, Vanish and more.Global heroIt doesn’t only sell these to UK customers but sells its products in more than 120 countries around the world. As well as its global products, Reckitt Benckiser also offers ‘local hero’ brands that may offer faster growth and higher margins.The Reckitt Benckiser share price usually trades at a premium valuation, typically around 22-24 times earnings, because investors are willing to pay extra for a quality long-term keeper like this one. Currently, it is relatively cheap by its own standards, trading at just 18.3 times earnings. That is due to a recent patchy performance, with the stock trading 8% lower than three years ago.Its most recent trading update, in October, show steady third-quarter growth of 1.6%, but weakness in its Health division (Hygiene Home is still growing nicely). CEO Laxman Narasimhan pinned Health’s “disappointing” performance on more cautious retailer seasonal purchasing patterns in the US, and challenging market conditions in China.50 years is a long, long timeI’m not too worried about this, remember, we are looking to buy and hold this stock for anything up to 50 years. In fact, I see this as a good opportunity to buy a relative bargain price, then bed in and wait for the recovery.Reckitt Benckiser continues to invest in its market-leader brands to build the business for the long term, and is working hard to boost its operational performance. Turning around its Health division could take time — Barclays’ analysts reckon three years, but they also said that success could lift its share price “significantly”.While you wait, you benefit from the 2.7% yield, nicely covered twice by earnings, which gives management plenty of scope to increase the payout over the longer run. This passive income stream should continue to climb over the years and decades. I would buy and hold Reckitt Benckiser with the aim of holding it until retirement and beyond.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img I was bullish on explorer Greatland Gold‘s (LSE: GGP) potential when I first looked at the miner back in August 2019. Since then, the shares have soared from under 2p to a little over 23p, making GGP one of the best-performing UK-listed stocks over the last year. Had one bought back then, one would be sitting on a gain of over 1,200%! Today — 14 months later — I’m taking another look. 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…Greatland Gold: a lucky punt?Now, let’s be clear from the outset — there was an awful lot of luck in my call. Investing in any miner, let alone a minnow, is fraught with risk.First, there’s no guarantee it’ll find what it’s looking for, or be able to extract sufficient quantities of what it does find to make the business profitable. Second, mining can be an expensive business. Many companies go bust before they’ve a chance to make their mark. Third, miners have no control over the prices of the commodities they extract. Fourth, mining shares have a tendency to ‘pop and drop’, catching unwary investors on the price spike.All that said, Greatland Gold has certainly done all it can to put itself in a great position to continue rewarding investors. Recent news has only served to boost the investment case further.Good progressIn August, the company announced it has commenced drilling at its delightfully-named Scallywag prospect in the Paterson region of northern Western Australia.As CEO Gervaise Heddle commented, many of the targets in this region “display similar geophysical characteristics” to Greatland’s stunning Havieron gold-copper discovery “where ongoing drilling under a Farm-in with Newcrest has returned a series of outstanding results.” This certainly bodes well. Speaking of Havieron, the company has also announced it had secured a mining lease relating to the project. Assuming GGP is able to get it into production, this could eventually become one of the most valuable gold mines in the world.On top of this progress, Greatland Gold has benefited hugely from the surge in the price of the precious metal since the coronavirus struck. Despite coming off the boil in recent months, the value of gold has still soared around 25% since the beginning of 2020!Sell or hold?Regardless of whether the GGP share price would be where it is in the absence of the pandemic, the fact remains that a lot of early holders will be sitting on big profits. What now? For me, an optimum strategy for existing owners might be to bank some profit and keep the rest invested.  After all, such an incredible return over such a short period shouldn’t be taken for granted. Greatland Gold remains a company in its infancy and a lot could still go wrong. Notwithstanding, keeping some money invested will allow holders to benefit from any further positive news on drilling. Naturally, no one knows where the gold price will go in the short term either. Since there are simply too many factors that could impact sentiment, one potentially great destination for GGP profits, in my opinion, would be VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF.Diversified across 80 small- and mid-cap miners, this fund ensures investors have exposure to the gold price without the risk the comes from owning just one stock. The ongoing charge is a reasonable 0.55%.  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.

Emergency ID products to raise funds for charities

Because Trish was present, she could not only summon the emergency services but also supply them with the relevant information that enabled her mother to receive appropriate treatment within the timescale that prevented irreversible damage.As her mother recovered in hospital, Trish thought about how different the outcome would have been if her mother had been alone when she suffered the stroke, and what she could do to help others in a similar situation.“When I started researching, I could see that there were a number of In Case of Emergency (ICE) products on the market, ranging from jewellery to ID cards, but I was surprised to find that none of them were high visibility, and that can prove to be a vital factor in many scenarios.“For emergency services attending an incident, being able to locate details of a patient’s identity, medical history and special needs quickly could prove to be a matter of life and death.”She created a prototype after consulting several UK charities, including the Stroke Association, and found a team of UK manufacturers who were not only prepared to deal with a start-up business but also to spend time working with her on improving her initial designs in high visibility material.“Because of their distinctive colour scheme, blue and yellow on the retro-reflective material, our products are the most visible on the market and can be seen in dim or dismal conditions, on land or at sea”, says Trish.ICEtell product prices start at £4.75 including P&P.last_img read more

A youth in the struggle

first_imgSummer is an activist with the Revolutionary Students Union in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she lives with her partner Wilden and their daughter. Along with student organizing, Summer and Wilden have worked in support of workers’ rights and in the anti-war movement.I grew up Mormon in the very conservative state of Utah. It was taboo to even talk about politics around my family because it would somehow “ruin our family relationships.” Despite this, towards the end of high school I was exposed to radical left-wing politics through some friends of mine and started my journey to activism.I came to political activism in college by becoming involved in an anti-Walmart campaign that was going on in Salt Lake City. Our goal was to provide the public with information about the exploitation of workers and union busting by this giant capitalist corporation. During this campaign, for the first time in my life, I began to recognize that life under capitalism is a constant struggle between people who work for a living and those that get rich off exploiting them.The Marxist term for this is the “class struggle” — the working class struggling against the capitalist class. One point that really resonated with me at this time was the conclusion that the capitalist system always puts profit before people. My partner Wilden and I soon became involved in the growing anti-war movement that was forming around the time of the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq by the U.S. We traveled to a huge anti-war rally in San Francisco in January 2003, where 100,000 people came out to oppose the U.S. threats of war!With our political consciousness growing, we were less and less satisfied with the analysis of mainstream media. Wilden and I began attending a revolutionary book club and discussion group in Salt Lake City. We also started working with a local peace coalition, helping to organize anti-war events in our area.We took a little time off from political work to have a little girl named Violet, and after a couple of years we became politically active doing immigrant rights work and fighting against repressive Arizona-style legislation in Utah.Wilden and I contacted many left-wing groups, but the one that impressed us the most was Workers World Party.WWP has a long history of working with working-class and oppressed people to build community power and fight for our collective interests against the capitalist class. We believe that the only way to have real liberation and equality is to overthrow capitalism, and that the only way to overthrow capitalism is through solidarity and organizing in the working-class and oppressed communities.This outlook is directly tied to our understanding of Marxism and the application of Marxist analysis to the world today. We hope you join us in the streets and in our communities to see what we mean by putting Marxism into action! nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

UAW-Chrysler contract: Jobs threatened, two-tier pay stays

first_imgJust 19 hours after the old contract between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the United Auto Workers expired on Sept. 14, the company and the union announced that a tentative agreement on a new four-year contract had been reached. Workers began reading the contract online on Sept. 19. The voting process is expected to take about 10 days.Touting the new agreement, UAW President Dennis Williams told FCA members that “your bargaining committee has taken a thoughtful and strategic approach to addressing this inequity over time in a way that allows the company to continue to invest in our plants, develop new product and keep our jobs secure.” (uaw.org, contract summary)“This inequity” refers to the hugely unpopular two-tier pay scale. Workers hired after October 2007 are paid substantially less than those hired before that date, have different benefits and do not get a defined benefit pension or health insurance when they retire. The two-tier system not only lowers wages; it keeps workers divided and undermines solidarity.Two-tier pay in perpetuityA cursory read of the contract summary exposes the falseness of Williams’ boastful claims. This is the third UAW-Chrysler contract to perpetuate two-tier. While second-tier workers will see their pay go up, first-tier workers — who haven’t had a raise in nine years — also get a pay increase. By the end of the contract, there will still be a $5-to-$8-per-hour pay gap between the highest paid and the lowest paid workers, most of whom will not even reach the top of their pay scale.There is an even lower hourly rate for parts workers and axle plant workers, as well as the often-abused temporary part-time workers for whom most of the contract, including the grievance procedure, does not apply. In fact, there are more pay tiers than before. The unequal benefit structure is basically intact. A promise under the old contract to move a percentage of workers up to first-tier pay is broken in the new contract.Far from “addressing” this gross inequality, the contract institutionalizes it “over time” — until first-tier pay and benefits disappear as older workers retire or die. Until then, FCA’s plan is to maintain two-tier pay in perpetuity. This scheme has precedence. After breaking a long strike in 1998, Caterpillar became the first UAW employer to introduce two-tier wages. Now there is only one low tier.There are other drawbacks to the contract — no raises in pensions, no restoration of the cost-of-living allowance, a rotten attendance policy, further consolidation of skilled trades classifications and the continuation of the hated Alternative Work Schedule.Expect job lossesWhile workers are disappointed and angry about the continuation of two-­tier, they are even more concerned about layoffs under a major $5.3 billion “investment” plan — read restructuring. Right after the tentative agreement was announced, the news broke that FCA would be moving all car production to Mexico. UAW plants in the U.S. will now only produce trucks and SUVs, with the production spread around FCA’s five assembly plants.The original justification for two-tier, introduced in the 2007 contract, was that it was necessary to help Chrysler, Ford and General Motors overcome financial difficulties. Later, when they began making record profits, workers were told that lower labor costs would bring small car production back to the U.S. Now it is clear that this was a capitalist ploy to drive wages down in order to jack up profits.Ford is moving Focus production out of the country. GM’s small car plant in Lake Orion, Mich., has hundreds of workers on indefinite layoff. Now FCA is moving car production — where the profit margin is lowest — back to a country where workers earn about one-fifth the wages of U.S. autoworkers. Trucks and SUVs, which are the most profitable, will be built in the U.S. where wages are higher, but now substantially reduced. Many plants will see their workloads reduced.This is how FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne gets his reputation as a “turnaround kid.” As CEO of Fiat — before Fiat took over Chrysler and merged the two companies — he would bully Italian autoworkers into taking concessions under the threat of plant closings. Taking advantage of the restoration of capitalism, Fiat built plants in Eastern Europe, where workers make far less than their Italian counterparts. As the Mexican FCA plant makes space to manufacture the Dart and 200, production of the Fiat 500 is moving to Poland.The massive retooling involved in moving all the manufacture of these vehicles to different plants will cost billions of dollars that could be used to eliminate unequal wage tiers worldwide. This restructuring will bring in the latest, greatest, leanest and meanest of labor-saving, job-cutting robotics. This hardly sounds like a plan to keep jobs secure — not in the U.S., Mexico or Poland.The only thing that will keep jobs secure is to follow the example of GM, Ford, Volkswagen and Mercedes workers in Brazil, who went on strike and stopped permanent mass layoffs from happening this summer.Grevatt is a 28-year UAW Chrysler worker.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
