FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Peter Stephens | Saturday, 20th February, 2021 Value shares have been relatively unpopular for much of the last year. Investors have instead focused on companies that could deliver high earnings growth in what is expected to be a changed global economy post-coronavirus.As such, there may be buying opportunities among cheap shares in high-quality businesses. Through purchasing a wide range of them now and holding them for the long run, it may be possible to obtain index-beating returns. They could increase an investor’s chances of making a million.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…Buying high-quality stocks at cheap pricesThere is a great difference between cheap shares and value shares. The former are simply companies that trade at very low prices. In some cases, they can offer good value for money. Some might be high-quality businesses with solid financial positions and large competitive advantages. However, in other cases they may be trading at a cheap price because they lack those attributes, or because they face difficult operating conditions in the long run.Therefore, it is important to assess the quality of a business before buying it. Clearly, this will be very subjective. But it is likely to include consideration of a company’s balance sheet, strategy and market position relative to competitors. This could help investors deduce whether a company offers good value for money at its current price. All of these factors can have a large influence on its capacity to deliver improving profitability. As such, ensuring they are in place before purchase could be a means of reducing overall risks and improving potential rewards.Building a portfolio of value sharesMany value shares are priced at attractive price levels because they face temporary challenges. For example, at the present time they may face disruption from coronavirus lockdown restrictions that are unlikely to last forever.However, those threats can sometimes cause the downfall of a business. For example, they may be unable to adapt to a changing world economy in the long run, or new technology may make their products obsolete. This means there is a real threat that any value stock can lose money for investors, or even fold. This makes it extremely important to build a diverse portfolio of stocks that, together, can provide a high overall return. Otherwise, it is possible to have a portfolio that is overly concentrated and susceptible to poor returns from a small number of holdings.Making a millionAn investor who buys a diverse portfolio of value shares to match the return of the wider stock market could realistically make a million in the long run. For example, investing £750 per month at an 8% annual return would produce a portfolio valued at over £1m within 30 years.However, through buying value shares it is possible to outperform the stock market. This could help to bring a £1m portfolio in a shorter timeframe as the world economy and stock market recover.

Attempt by mayor of southeastern town to intimidate freelance journalist

first_imgNews Follow the news on Bulgaria March 10, 2021 Find out more Organisation February 11, 2021 Find out more Bulgaria: RSF condemns refusal to investigate reporter’s violent arrest to go further News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders condemns the harassment of freelance journalist Atanas Tchobanov by the mayor of the southeastern town of Carevo. Town hall employees entered his property in the nearby village of Varvara on 13 May, told his parents in a threatening manner they were acting on mayor Petko Arnaudov’s orders, and proceeded to measure a wooden bungalow built on the land, claiming it was illegal.Tchobanov immediately reported the incident to the police and the prosecutor’s office, asking them to treat it as a case of trespass and abuse of authority.“The Carevo town hall employees had no legal basis for this ‘visit’,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Chobanov’s family has clearly been the victim of a case of intimidation, which often precedes more violent ‘warnings’ in Bulgaria. We urge the government authorities that oversee the town hall to publicly condemn this behaviour and to adopt the necessary measures with the officials who instigated this intimidation.”Tchobanov told Reporters Without Borders he was convinced that the Carevo town hall was reacting to one of his investigative reports accusing it of abusing public resources and corrupt practices. “The mayor can bring a defamation suit against me if he does not like my articles and I will prove to the court that they were right,” Tchobanov said. “The methods he has used are worthy of the old regime. What is happening to me now is unfortunately not an isolated case. Regional journalists are often the victim of angry reactions from local officials but they dare not denounce the intimidation because they are economically dependent on the local government or fear administrative reprisals.”Read Chobanov’s story (in Bulgarian):http://www.dnevnik.bg/show/?rubrikaname=analizi&storyid=777173&stname=pe…Information (in Bulgarian) about corruption: http://www.mediapool.bg/show/?storyid=164939&srcpos=5 RSF_en center_img News Bulgaria’s general election: RSF publishes 10 proposals to rescue press freedom RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive May 21, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Attempt by mayor of southeastern town to intimidate freelance journalist News Help by sharing this information BulgariaEurope – Central Asia December 2, 2020 Find out more BulgariaEurope – Central Asia last_img read more
