Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Edward Sheldon, CFA | Saturday, 3rd October, 2020 Enter Your Email Address Edward Sheldon owns shares in Apple, Unilever, Diageo, Keywords Studios, and dotDigital. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Activision Blizzard, Amazon, Apple, and Tesla. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Diageo, dotDigital Group, Keywords Studios, and Unilever and recommends the following options: short January 2022 $1940 calls on Amazon, long January 2022 $1920 calls on Amazon, long January 2022 $75 calls on Activision Blizzard, and short January 2022 $75 puts on Activision Blizzard. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. UK shares are out of favour right now. Not only are they being shunned by large global investors, but it seems they are now being ignored by British retail investors too. According to research from the Investment Association, UK equity funds account for just 14% of the total funds held by British investors this year. Back in 2004, the figure was closer to 40%.It’s not hard to see why UK shares are unpopular at present. For starters, the UK stock market lacks big, exciting tech companies such as Apple, Amazon, and Tesla. Secondly, there’s a significant amount of economic uncertainty here in the UK due to Brexit. Dumping UK shares entirely, though, may not be the best move. There are still plenty of attractive opportunities on the UK stock market.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…World-class companiesIn recent years, I’ve written about the importance of international diversification many times. By adding international shares to your portfolio, you can potentially enhance your overall returns and also lower your overall portfolio risk.The UK market isn’t perfect. Many of the largest companies in the UK are struggling for growth. Meanwhile, the UK stock market only represents around 5% of the world’s total stock market capitalisation. British investors should not avoid UK shares completely, however. Here in the UK, we do have plenty of world-class companies.Top UK sharesTake Unilever for example. This legendary consumer goods company – that Warren Buffett tried to buy a few years back – is very profitable and also pretty much recession-proof. Long-term investors here have done very well. But with 50%+ of sales coming from emerging markets, there could be plenty more growth to come.Alcoholic beverage company Diageo, which owns the likes of Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, and Tanqueray, is another UK stock that I’d classify as world-class. It obviously faces some challenges right now due to Covid. Yet long term, the future looks exciting. Diageo believes that in the next 10 years, another 750m people worldwide will be able to afford its drinks.Small companies, big gains The small-cap area of the market is where UK shares really shine, I feel. At this end of the market-cap spectrum, there are some true gems.One example of a top UK small-cap stock is Keywords Studios. It’s a video game support services company that serves all the big players in the industry such as Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts. Between 2014 and 2019, revenues here climbed 775%. The share price is up nearly 1,000% in five years.dotDigital is another UK small-cap technology stock that is worth a mention. It provides SaaS marketing solutions. It’s highly profitable and growing at a rapid rate. Its share price is up around 275% in five years.These are just some examples of top UK stocks that have delivered stunning returns for investors over the long term. There are many more.The takeaway? Don’t give up on UK shares. There are plenty of fantastic opportunities if you know where to look. British investors have dumped UK shares. I think that could be a mistake 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.

Howard Lake | 30 November 2002 | News Today is this site’s eighth birthday. The site’s original single page was published on the Web on 30 November 1994.Today UK Fundraising celebrates its eighth birthday. We’ve been publishing news, information and advice for fundraisers, including unparalled coverage of Internet fundraising, since November 1994. We’ve done so at no charge to our site’s users, yet we continue to make a profit. If we’ve helped you and your charity improve your fundraising in some way then we have achieved some of what we set out to do.Our guiding aim from the beginning has been to use the Internet to spread best practice in fundraising, to link fundraisers with other fundraisers, and of course to demonstrate how the Internet can assist fundraisers in a remarkable number of ways. At the same time, we’ve worked to serve the broader fundraising industry, linking fundraisers with appropriate suppliers and advisers. Advertisement Of course, the site now looks quite different from that first page we created eight years ago. Indeed, it now runs on a database-driven solution, has around 5,000 pages (if you counted all our database records), and a few months ago we started introducing personalised e-mail services for site users. But many things haven’t changed – we remain independent and self-funded. In fact, in these days of £150,000 grants for creating online knowledgebases such as AskNCVO, it’s worth remembering that in 1994 there were no grants for initiatives such as UK Fundraising. No trust, government department, umbrella body, or industry supplier was interested in funding online infrastructure for the voluntary sector. For that reason, we set ourselves up as a limited company, invested our own money in it, and knew that we would have to make a profit to stay in business. We then set ourselves the challenge of giving away our information at no charge and still making a profit – a true testament to our belief that the Internet was a significant revenue tool for organisations of all kinds.One other thing that hasn’t changed in eight years is the contributions of our readers: fundraisers from around the world send us their success stories, thoughts and ideas. We are truly delighted to see the Internet being used by fundraisers in so many creative and successful ways. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the site and given us their support.You might have guessed that we’re still excited by what we do, and we have plenty of ideas for new and better services for fundraisers. Feel free to continue making your suggestions though.We raised a glass earlier today to UK Fundraising’s success. Let us take this opportunity to wish you all the very best in your fundraising to help your organisation make a difference.

It passed unanimously as part of the council’s consent agenda, with no discussion.For the past 11 years, the PPD has used technology products acquired through the West Covina Services Group for its Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Mobile Data System (MDS) and Records Management System (RMS) operations.But last year, West Covina Services said it was halting enhancements and product support on the CAD and RMS systems by the end of 2021 – leaving the PPD with tech systems that are fully operational now and in the immediate future, but potentially on the road to obsolescence.Enter CIT Com, a Temecula firm that won the city contract from among seven companies entering bids.It will provide the city’s Department of Information Technology — which oversees the PPD’s tech operations, along with a range of other city IT matters – with the technical advice on how to proceed with replacing the CAD and RMS systems.“Other law enforcement agencies have also demonstrated project efficiency by utilizing consulting services to present decision makers with critical and relevant information in the selection and implementation of an optimal CAD RMS solution,’’ according to a city staff report.The Department of Information Technology, not the PPD, had put in the request to the City Council for the new contract.In consultation with the PPD, the Department of Information Technology evaluated the seven bidders in a range of categories, including scope of work; project experience; staffing experience; and cost.City staff recommended CIT com “based on the quality of the work CIT Com completed in the business needs assessment phase, and the fact that they provided the most comprehensive and highest ranked proposal in the original RFP (request for purchase),’’ the staff report said.City staff said about $53,440 of the CIT Com contract will be spent in fiscal year 2020, to cover services related to software development and vendor evaluation. The rest of the $200,967 would be spent over the next two fiscal years.CIT Com had emphasized the importance of complying with the emerging law-enforcement reporting requirements, including FBI’s National Incident Based Reporting System, due by 2021, and California Assembly Bill 953, the 2015 Racial and Identity Profiling Act (RIPA) system, due by 2023.Law-enforcement agencies are required to collect information on the race, gender and age of people pulled over in traffic stops. All departments are required to begin collecting the data in 2023.Last week, Pasadena Police Chief John Perez told Pasadena Now that his department attempted to comply with the law early, but that the current system made it impossible to do so.

Michael Francis McElroy/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) — A Frontier Airlines plane bound for Tampa was forced to return to Las Vegas after an engine malfunction, according to the airline.On Friday morning, a section of the engine cover, called a cowling, came loose and separated from the aircraft, Frontier Airlines said.“Our pilots followed procedure and immediately returned to the airport. The engine continued to operate normally and the aircraft, an Airbus 320, landed safely,” Frontier said in a statement. “Safety is our top priority at Frontier Airlines and we would like to acknowledge the professionalism of our pilots and flight attendants. We are working to get our passengers to their destinations as quickly as possible.”Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport told ABC News that the plane had landed safely at 7:26 a.m. PT and reached the gate on its own.Passenger Jazmin Pedraza described the chaotic scene aboard the flight to ABC News Friday.“As the plane started to accelerate, to take off, there were engine pieces flying and the engine had caught a slight fire. … One man started yelling and then everyone was yelling for assistance and pressing the buttons for [the crew] to stop the plane but we had already started taking off,” she said. “Once we got the attention of the flight attendants, she came and looked out of our windows to see what was going on and then went to call the pilot and got the passengers under control. Everyone started making phone calls to their loved ones and crying and panicking then they announced we will be doing an emergency landing and we stayed in the air for about 10 to 15 minutes until we were able to safely land the plane.”The airport said no one was injured aboard the plane, which was carrying 166 passengers and crew. The airfield staff reported debris on or near the runway.The Federal Aviation Administration said it had sent an inspector to the airport to look at the aircraft.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAllen Kee/ESPN ImagesBY: ERIC MOLLO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — As a member of the New York Mets in the 1980s, team legend Darryl Strawberry watched the franchise go through a change they are once again experiencing: new ownership. Strawberry played for the Mets from 1983-90, during which the franchise’s ownership was shifting. Real estate developer Fred Wilpon bought a small stake in the Mets in 1980, eventually becoming an equal partner in owning the team. The Wilpon family went on to become the sole owner with Saul Katz, and Fred served as Mets team president for more than two decades.In 2020, the Mets underwent a less protracted ownership change: hedge fund manager Steve Cohen purchased the team from the Wilpons and Katz, with Cohen immediately becoming the majority owner.The team has since made the biggest offseason splash in baseball, trading for superstar shortstop Francisco Lindor and pitcher Carlos Carrasco. Fans are hopeful the Mets will acquire a big name free agent, and with an increased payroll, make a World Series run in 2021.Strawberry, who played for the Mets the last time they won a championship in 1986, spoke to ABC News about his new book, “Turn Your Season Around,” and the state of the franchise prior to their acquisition of Lindor. He believes adding talent through free agency or trade is helpful, but that the best way new ownership can build a championship team is through effective player development:“We had a great general manager [Frank Cashen] and he had people underneath him. They went through the process of player development… and I think that is so, so critical to be able to develop your younger core players so they can play at the major league level. I think over the years, the Mets have gotten away from that kind of development. I think that’s important to get back to and I think they will get back to it.”The Mets made several front office changes this offseason, first bringing Sandy Alderson back to the franchise and hiring him as team president. The Mets then hired former Arizona Diamondbacks executive Jared Porter as general manager and former Red Sox executive Zack Scott as their new senior vice president and assistant general manager.The Mets have developed young talent in recent years, such as outfielder Michael Conforto and pitcher Jacob deGrom. Strawberry hopes that trend will continue. He views new ownership and the front office overhaul as promising:“I think new ownership is very excited… That can make a whole difference about ideas and about putting the people in the right places and understanding that if we’re going to get better, our minor league system has to get better.”Strawberry recounted his experience coming up through the minor leagues. He believes with homegrown talent like himself, Dwight Gooden, Ron Darling, and others, the team developed strong chemistry, learned how to win consistently, and came to believe that they could rely on one another. From there, they added pieces via free agency or trade, such as Keith Hernandez and Gary Carter. He believes the Mets in the 1980s needed years to develop chemistry and never got “used to losing,” something he thinks can happen if players do not have time together as a team.Strawberry points to the Mets’ crosstown rivals as a model for effective player development:“When you think about the Yankees and why the Yankees have been so good for so many years, it’s because their minor league system has been great. If you keep development in your mind and put your minor league system in a place, you’ll be great. You can bring in young players who could play and could come to the big leagues at a younger age and stick around for a long time. So, I think that’s what they [the Mets] need to really focus on.”MLB.com ranked the Mets’ minor league system in the bottom half of MLB last summer, and they already traded away one of their top prospects, Andres Gimenez, in the deal for Lindor. The Yankees were ranked 19th, just one spot ahead of the Mets.Strawberry did not contend that there is one set formula that would make the Mets World Series champs, but believes that drafting young talent and expanding their skills in the minor leagues is a good place to start building a championship club. Strawberry also discussed the challenges so many people have faced amid the COVID-19 pandemic and how baseball provided a sense of relief for many last summer. He hopes with new ownership, Mets fans will feel renewed excited about their club. He also wants people to think about hope as they face more challenges in the coming year, and why his personal experience with faith and battle with addiction during his playing days reminds him there will be better days ahead.“We’ve had a real poor half of the year in 2020 and are going into a new year. We’re going to have to get up for it… We have to be strong. We’re going to have to believe you can’t quit. You can’t give up… I could easily have quit in the second half and not gone on to have a strong season. You know what? You can easily quit in the second half of your life here after the pandemic and not get up and say, ‘I’m giving up, I’m quitting.’ And that’s happening to a lot of people. They don’t see hope. There’s hope. There’s light.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
