The series also has the support of Felix Porteiro, a former Spanish racing driver who competed against Lewis Hamilton in F1’s feeder series GP2. The leaked document also claims that the organizers have presented the series model to a couple of leading broadcasters, who have reportedly shown interest in broadcasting the series.According to the Press Association, several leading women racing drivers approached by organisers regarding the series are “understood to be skeptical and believe a women’s only championship may harm or undermine their position within the industry”.Motor racing is the biggest sport that does not offer an alternative for women to compete in standalone events, though there are no rules preventing women competing in the top series of the sport. The news comes two years after Formula One’s chief executive at the time, Bernie Ecclestone, suggested a separate championship for female drivers could run on Grand Prix weekends.A spokesperson for the new series organisers said: “There will be no announcement for a number of months as we are undertaking a lot of research and completing our strategy. Starting something from scratch takes an enormous amount of time to get right.”Italy’s Lella Lombardi and Maria Teresa de Filippis are the only female drivers to start a Formula One race in the championship’s history. Lombardi is the only women driver in the history of sports to have scored a point in the Formula One series. Post Lombardi era, Divina Galica, Desire Wilson and Giovanna Amati was engaged as Formula 1 drivers to compete in the series but could never manage to start from the grid.In 2014, Susie Wolff became the first woman for 22 years to compete in a practice session and made four Friday appearances or the Williams Martini Racing team.

Here’s why I think the FTSE 100 could be in for a great 2020

Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Unilever. 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. According to Bank of America, which expects world economies to bottom out in the first quarter, stocks “are expected to outperform bonds handily in 2020.”Now, over the long term that’s not news. In the UK, stocks have been wiping the floor with bonds for more than a century. And what’s likely to happen over the short term can only be estimated with such wide error margins that I don’t think it’s worth acting upon.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…Just stashing away your money in good shares and leaving it there for decades is, in my opinion, likely to be far more cost effective than following advisors who are constantly urging clients to rebalance, move cash between assets, and accumulate charges in the process.But there does seem to be general bullishness all around, with Morgan Stanley suggesting that UK stocks are the top equity choice for 2020, and that small-cap companies could be the ones to go for.CautiousWhile I agree with the general optimism, I think it needs to be tempered a little for UK investors, because the returns you’re going to get from investing in UK stocks depend on your currency.Since EU referendum day in 2016, the FTSE 100 is up 20%, which might seem like a surprisingly good result as we’re supposed to have been through three years of chaos, confusion, and a weakening UK economy.But a fair bit of the apparent Footsie gain is due to the falling value of sterling which, even after a post-election boost, is still down 11% since the Brexit poll. Though the value of the FTSE 100 is denominated in sterling, the actual value of its shares, which are mostly international in nature, is more closely tied to their US dollar earnings.As an example, a UK investor who bought Unilever shares on referendum day will today be sitting on a share price gain of 37%, while a US investor buying in dollars will be looking at a rise of only 21%. Putting aside the weakness of the pound, UK shares have not done as well in the past three years as it might seem.WeaknessOf course, it works the other way too. While we still have a year of uncertainty ahead of us on the Brexit front as the government tries to work out a trade deal under Boris Johnson’s self-imposed time restriction, the prospects for UK companies are, I think, the best they’ve been for the past few years. On that score, I agree with those commentators pumping the outlook for UK stocks.But at the same time, the better economic conditions I hope we’ll see over the next few years should give the pound a boost, and reverse the effect of the past few years. So if the FTSE’s performance turns out to be as good as bullish American banks are suggesting, here in the UK we might not see the same sterling returns as the dollar returns that US investors could enjoy.Anyway, I am bullish about UK stocks for 2020 and the years ahead, but I think we do need to temper the short-term enthusiasm we’re seeing.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 31st December, 2019 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

This was the best performing FTSE 100 stock of 2019

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares With all of the New Year celebrations now out of the way, it is a good time to look at what to invest in for the coming year. It may sound incredibly obvious, but a good place to start is by looking at what the best performers were during 2019. It may be the case that there were some flash-in-the-pan spikes that need to be viewed carefully, but there can be merit in jumping on the bandwagon of a stock that did very well last year.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…To that end, let’s have a look at JD Sports (LSE: JD), which can wear the crown of being the best performing (from a share price gain point of view) stock in the FTSE 100.The undisputed KingFrom a price of 349p in January of last year, it rallied hard to finish the year at 837p, with a remarkably smooth uptrend. This was a return of 139%!When we compare this to the performance of the FTSE 100 as a whole, it really puts into context the size of the move. The index returned just over 12%, meaning JD Sports gave investors over 10 times the performance of the index.What happened here?When a stock rallies by this amount, it is either due to one important factor, or many smaller ones. For JD Sports, it was the latter.Firstly, it has benefited from the fall off in competition, with Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct International… sorry, Frasers Group as it is now known… struggling, as one can see from earnings reports. Further, Ashley’s aggressive approach to growing his presence on the high street has not always been the best strategy, as can be seen from the acquisition of House of Fraser. Investors therefore have cycled out of Sports Direct and into JD Sports.There is plenty of merit to JD Sports without external factors though. The business itself has been able to grow earnings by 49% in the past 12 months, and has a very high gross profit margin of 47%. Cash flow has dried up somewhat, but this can be put down to acquisitions.JD agreed to acquire Footasylum in March of this year for around £90m, but that deal is still the subject of a CMA investigation. Yet it is the takeover of US chain Finish Line from 2018 that has been a larger boost for 2019. The dampened retail sector here in the UK has been offset by that presence in the US, enabling JD Sports to still grow earnings at a group level.Still room to grow?Of 11 analysts offering a viewpoint on the company, the range in share price forecast varies between 680p to 900p, showing that the professionals think further upside could be there, but limited. Indeed, with a P/E ratio of 31, it is easy to see why some investors may be cautious of buying-in right now, and I would agree. Fundamentally I think the business is sound and will continue to perform both from acquisitions and from picking up business due to the demise of competition. But after the stellar share price rally of 2019, I would wait for a pullback to see the P/E ratio and other financial ratios return to lower figures before investing.

Las manifestaciones de protesta por todo el país siguen en aumento y la prensa no cesa de hablar de los problemas de Ayotzinapa y la nueva y lujosa Casa Blanca que ocupa la pareja presidencial. Televisa el gigante de las comunicaciones en México y Estados Unidos parece alejarse del presidente y porque “no deja de criticar su actuación”. Por otra parte, han aparecido restos de un jovencito que según los expertos en ADN corresponden a uno de los 43 estudiantes desaparecidos.La violencia policial se ha incrementado en Estados Unidos como consecuencia de la muerte de dos ciudadanos afro-americanos a manos de la policía. Por lo menos diecisiete ciudades del país han visto las manifestaciones de la comunidad afro-americana exigiendo justicia y mejor protección de los cuerpos armados. En casi todas las ciudades la proporción entre policías blancos y negros es grande y activistas de la causa racial dicen que eso da lugar a los abusos y excesos de poder de la policía.Según un informe divulgado por la Organización Mundial de la Salud, cada año en América Latina y el Caribe un total aproximado de cuatro millones de mujeres recurren al aborto por diferentes motivos. De ese total 1,4 millones corresponden a Brasil. El informe añade que una de cada 400 mujeres muere a causa de prácticas ilegales, muchos abortos “ponen en riesgo su salud reproductiva e imponen una severa presión a los sistemas de salud y hospitales ya sobrecargados”. El aborto inducido se encuentra penado en casi todos los países con excepción de Cuba y algunos países del Caribe. Existe además un alto nivel de abortos clandestinos que aumenta paulatinamente cada año. Países como México y Colombia han reducido el número de abortos mediante el uso de anticonceptivos.A fines de noviembre más de 570 maestros, directores y administradores de escuelas, además de obispos y capellanes se reunieron en Los Ángeles para intercambiar ideas sobre la misión y ministerio de las escuelas y colegios episcopales. La ocasión dio lugar a la celebración del 50 aniversario de la Asociación de Escuelas Episcopales, la organización que reúne a la gran mayoría de las 1,000 instituciones educativas relacionadas con la Iglesia Episcopal.  Entre esas instituciones existen cuatro antiguas universidades fuera de Estados Unidos: Cuttington University en Liberia, África; Rikkio University en Japón; St. John´s University en Shanghai, China y Trinity University en Filipinas. “Nuestra misión debe ser formar hombres y mujeres que trabajen en la creación de un mundo mejor, más humano y más cristiano”, dijo un grupo de trabajo.El arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby y el papa Francisco acaban de participar de un grupo de líderes de las principales religiones del mundo con el fin de terminar para 2020 todas las formas de esclavitud humana existentes en el mundo de hoy. Un informe dijo que la esclavitud moderna se manifiesta principalmente en el tráfico humano, el trabajo forzado y la prostitución. Una declaración conjunta al final de la reunión dice en parte que “todos los seres humanos tienen la misma libertad y dignidad”. En la reunión participaron cristianos, hindúes, budistas, judíos y musulmanes entre otros.En una audiencia con la Comisión Teológica Internacional el papa Francisco dijo “los teólogos deben escuchar más al pueblo de Dios y auscultar, discernir e interpretar con la ayuda del Espíritu Santo” las necesidades del pueblo. Añadió que de esta manera la verdad revelada  podrá ser percibida y entendida en forma más adecuada. El papa mostró su agrado porque en la comisión ha aumentado la presencia de mujeres que pueden  con su inteligencia y experiencia interpretar mejor las necesidades de esa gran parte del pueblo de Dios.El presidente de Estados Unidos Barack Obama anunció recientemente que es necesario imponer sanciones  punitivas al gobierno de Venezuela por la constante violación de los derechos humanos en esa nación suramericana.El plan de la Unión Democristiana de Ángela Merkel ha esbozado en un proyecto de ley en un congreso celebrado en Colonia que “todo aquel que piensa vivir indefinidamente en el país debe aprender a hablar alemán, tanto en los espacios públicos como en su casa”. Pese a las innumerables críticas al plan, aliados de la Merkel dicen que la idea prosperará por el voto de la mayoría. Un periódico dijo en su editorial en tono de guasa que si eso se hace “tendremos que colocar cámaras en las casas de nuestros inmigrantes”.VERDAD.

Bates Wells & Braithwaite identifies concerns with draft Charities Bill

first_img Howard Lake | 2 June 2004 | News Bates Wells & Braithwaite identifies concerns with draft Charities Bill Under the regulation section BWB state their concern about the “conspicuous absence” of any statement “explicitly requiring the Commission to act with proper principles of substantive and procedural fairness, including in accordance with the Human Rights Act and the general rules of natural justice.”Similarly the firm finds no “prescriptive provision, as suggested by the Strategy Unit Report, to ensure the Commission has a clear and streamlined internal appeal procedure”.The firm’s analysis of the Bill’s propose for fundraising is particularly clear and helfpul. Charity law specialists Bates Wells & Braithwaite (BWB) have broadly welcomed the draft Charities Bill, but have raised concerns about some of the clauses.The law firm is concerned about the workability of the public charitable collection proposals, and the lack of a statutory obligation on the Charity Commission to act fairly. As a result, it says that “the consultation period must be seized by charities as an opportunity to influence the detail of the legislation”.BWB have published a free 11-page analysis of the draft Bill.
