Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 4th January, 2020 | More on: BLND RSA After the general election last month, shares in British Land (LSE: BLND), one of the largest real estate investment trusts in the UK, surged as investors rushed to take advantage of a rare opportunity.For much of the past 12 months, shares in this real estate investment trust have been trading at a deep discount to its underlying net asset value due to political and economic uncertainty. At one point, the discount was more than 40%.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…However, as uncertainty has started to dissipate, the market has re-rated the stock. It is up around 35% since its 2019 low of 468p printed back in the middle of August.Still cheapBut despite this impressive rally, shares in British Land still look undervalued. Indeed, at the time of writing, the stock is trading at a price-to-book ratio of only 0.76, implying there’s a further upside of 32% from current levels before the stock reaches fair value.Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that shares in British Land will reach this level. That said, in the past, the stock has traded at a premium to net asset value, so I think it is highly likely that the company will trade back up to book value at some point.In the meantime, investors can look forward to a dividend yield of 5%. As a real estate investment trust, British Land has to distribute the majority of its rental income to shareholders every year to maintain its favourable tax status. Management can also top up the rental income distribution with capital gains on property development. This means that British Land is a highly reliable income stock.It is this combination of capital growth potential coupled with British Land’s 5% dividend yield that makes me think this stock could be a great addition to a portfolio in 2020.Diversified incomeI think it could also be worth keeping an eye on general insurer RSA Insurance (LSE: RSA) this year. It is one of the largest insurance companies in the UK, offering everything from home insurance to business insurance through its direct-to-customer brands. The group also has a presence in Scandinavia and Canada, giving it diversification away from its home market here in the UK.Several years ago, RSA ran into some problems, which forced the business into a loss and cost the previous management team their jobs. Former RBS CEO Stephen Hester was parachuted into the top position to take control, and he has done a fantastic job since then. City analysts are expecting the group to report a net profit of £430m this year, up 24% from 2018. On this basis, the stock is trading at a forward P/E of 13.9, falling to 12.1 for fiscal 2020.As well as the attractive valuation and growth potential, the stock also supports a dividend yield of 4.2%, rising to 5% for fiscal 2020 according to current projections. Dividend cover of 1.7 tells me that this payout is exceptionally safe for the time being. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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.

Follow the news on Yemen News Since he wrote articles in 2006 criticising the re-election of Ali Abdallah Saleh, the government-run press has not accepted a single article from Al-Mawari. “When an independent newspaper accepts one of my articles, it runs the risk of being prevented from printing”, added Al-Mawari. He said he had not written a single article for the independent press in Yemen in the past three months, so as not to give the authorities extra reasons for banning the newspapers. Receive email alerts “The international community should urgently come to the aid of Yemeni civil society before it is too late,” the organisation added. Help by sharing this information Elsewhere, Reporters Without Borders has had no news since 18 September of journalist Muhammad Al-Maqalih, who went missing in mysterious circumstances. His colleagues meeting in the capital Sanaa on 20 October for their weekly gathering repeated a call for his release. Organisation February 26, 2021 Find out more News United Nations: press freedom situation “deeply worrying” in Yemen, according to RSF to go further “The only way to defeat this is to put pressure on the powerful,” he said, in a bid to alert international public opinion about press freedom in Yemen. He was reacting to recent statements by a top intelligence services official, denying any state involvement in the disappearance of Al-Maqalih. The newspaper’s editor, Samir Jubran, was sentenced in the same case on 31 October to a one-year suspended prison term and a one-year ban on exercising his profession. The secretary general of Yemen’s journalists’ union, Marwan Damaj, condemned the verdict which he said was the harshest sentence against Yemeni journalists since 1990. “The goal of this sentence is (…) to silence Yemeni journalists who are trying to deal with sensitive issues with vigour and courage”, he added. The editor said that as far as he was concerned the sentence amounted to banning the newspaper itself. Reporters Without Borders today strongly condemned the decision of a court specialising in press offences that sentenced journalist Munir Al-Mawari of independent weekly Al-Masdar in his absence to two years in prison for libelling President Ali Abdallah Saleh and also banned him for life from working as a journalist. Al-Mawari, who has lived in the United States since 1994, told Reporters Without Borders that the sentence was “absurd”. “It is ridiculous to condemn someone for what they write. There is no law in any country that allows a ban preventing someone from writing. I have done nothing illegal, but it is clear that this decision was made by the president himself, even though in the article I only criticised his policy, I did not criticise him as a person”.

Even before its editor’s conviction, Al-Masdar had been ordered by the authorities to delete some articles in its 13 October edition. Issue no 61 of the newspaper Al-Watani, dated 18 October, was also seized because of an article about rebel operations in the south of the country. The newspaper Hadith Al-Madina had its no 18 issue withdrawn from newsstands on the unilateral order of the information ministry, on the pretext that the distributors had not provided him with a copy of the newspaper for prior approval. It carried an article by its editor, Fakri Qassem, analysing the impact of current conflicts on Yemen’s socio-economic situation. The case against the two Al-Masdar journalists related to an article published in May this year, headlined “Weapon of mass destruction”, in which Al-Mawari criticised the conduct of the war against Shiite rebels in the north of the country. Yemeni journalist Abdelkarim Al-Khaiwani, receiving a press freedom award in Algiers on 28 October, publicly accused the authorities of having abducted Al-Maqalih. “The security services kidnapped my colleague, we must show solidarity”, he said after receiving the Omar Ourtilane prize awarded by Algerian daily Al-Khabar. News Reporters Without Borders was relieved to learn of the release on 30 October of freelance journalist Saddam Al-Ashmuri, who was arrested in Marib, 120 km east of the capital on 22 October, just after he interviewed Ghalib Zaidi, the leader of Al-Qaeda in the region.

We urge you to see that such regulations hampering press freedom are changed,” he said.A group of 16 Spanish people, including the 10 journalists, were expelled to the Greek-Cypriot side of the island by police and foreign ministry press officials after conferring with NGOs, the media and other civil society groups in the north.There were accused of holding illegal meetings and giving “false information” to Turkish-Cypriot border officials. The group had earlier attended a conference in southern Cyprus on enlarging the European Union and had entered the north on tourist visas.Foreign journalists wanting to work in the north must inform the press office of the foreign ministry of the so-called “Turkish Republic of North Cyprus,” which is not recognised by the international community and must .

Manslaughter charges have been brought to court against the supervisors of a human catapult in Somerset, which in November 2002 tragically claimed the life of a first-year biochemistry student from Wadham. Kostadin Yankov, who had only come up to Oxford a few weeks previously, died after an event arranged through the Oxford Stunt Factory. His friends watched as ‘Dino’ fell “inches” short of the safety net, incurring serious spinal and leg injuries. He was immediately airlifted to Frenchay Hospital, Bristol, but died five hours later. It has emerged, however, that the device operators, Richard Wicks, 33 and David Aitkenhead, 45, may have been guilty of gross negligence. In Bristol Crown Court, the jury was told that the pair had been warned by an ambulance worker that there was cause for serious concern after four other students fell significantly short of the centre of the safety net. Despite this, they had taken no action to improve safety. Philip Mott, QC, prosecuting, described the defendants’ decision to use a new, untested, sling on the day of Mr Yankov’s death as “scarily reckless”. He speculated that “if the old sling had been used, Dino Yankov would have made it to the net.” The trial continues.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2004
