BP’s share price is rising! Should I buy the FTSE 100 stock now or buy other UK shares for my ISA?

Royston Wild | Monday, 8th February, 2021 | More on: BP The BP (LSE: BP) share price has been extremely turbulent in recent weeks. After reclaiming the 300p marker in mid-January and hitting five-month peaks in the process, it promptly reversed again. At around 258p per share, this UK oil share is basically flat since the turn of the year.BP’s sprung higher in start-of-week trade, however, as market confidence has improved. Whether or not this jolt of enthusiasm can last longer than January’s mini bull market remains to be seen. But on Monday, optimism surrounding a $1.9trn stimulus package in the US lifted risk appetite across financial markets.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…Brent crude’s charge through $60 per barrel has certainly helped BP in particular. The oil benchmark has now recovered all of the ground it lost early last year when the Covid-19 outbreak spooked financial markets. Brent is now dealing at 13-month highs.Risks remainIs it possible that BP could continue its northwards charge? It’s not outside the realm of possibility. Signs that central banks and world governments will keep the money printers switched on to aid the economic recovery will certainly help oil demand to rebound. News that crude shipments into China are also spiking bodes well for UK shares like BP too.I’m not getting too excited about the FTSE 100 oil giant, however. It is still trading at a near-50% discount to what it was at the start of 2020. And this is because the risks to the UK share’s profits column remain significant. One problem is that the fight against Covid-19 is far from over and lockdowns could persist long into 2021 if not beyond. I think the path to a full recovery in oil demand remains laden with danger.I’d buy other UK sharesOn the plus side, it seems that some of the near-term risks posed by a possible supply glut have receded in recent days. Speculation was rife that sanctions on Iran could be lifted. It’s a move that might have released a wave of unwanted oil into the market. But US President Biden last night poured cold water on the idea that sanctions could be rolled back before talks on a new nuclear deal begin.Still, over the medium-to-long term, I fear the threat of huge oversupply in the oil market. Massive fossil fuel investment across major nations like the US, Brazil, Norway, and Guyana might light a fire under global production levels later in the decade. And of course there is the big problem of green energy for UK oil-producing shares like BP to contend with.The oil industry’s major players have taken steps to boost their exposure to renewables. BP for instance invested $1.1bn in massive US offshore wind projects in the autumn to increase its green credentials. But fossil fuels will remain the company’s bread and butter for years to come. And this poses a big problem for the Footsie firm’s investors. I’d much rather buy other UK shares in my ISA today despite BP’s huge share price fall in the last year.

Today we’ve got the secret letter about Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s rejection of Hurricane Maria’s death toll, and the teen e-cigarette smoking as an ‘epidemic.’Secret letter about Kavanaugh referred to FBI by Senate Democrats A letter concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was referred to the FBI by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.According to BuzzFeed News, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has been closely guarding the content of the letter, but rumors of what it contains have already made it across Capitol Hill.Senate Judiciary Committee pushes back Supreme Court hearingThe Senate Judiciary Committee panel voted 11 to 10 to delay voting on Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh until next week. The new vote date is Sept. 20.According to The Washington Post, the delay was expected, and Kavanaugh is set to receive a full Senate confirmation vote next week. Migrant detention facilities nearing full capacityThe number of migrant children separated from their undocumented families after crossing the border is at an all-time high. According to The New York Times, the number of detained children has increased five times since last summer, reaching a total of 12,800 children. The Department of Health and Human Services reported shelter capacities are nearing 90 percent capacity. Despite the Trump administration’s push for more border security, the same number of children are crossing the border illegally as in past years. CBS boots “60 Minutes” chiefThe Executive Produce of CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Jeff Fager, was fired for threatening the career of one of his own reporters. The reporter was looking into allegations of sexual harassment against Fager and another CBS employee. CBS President, David Rhodes, said Fager’s actions didn’t match company policy, but his actions are separate from the allegations. FDA declares flavored e-cigarettes an epidemicAfter an increased wave of minors smoking e-cigarettes, the FDA has enforced a ban against manufacturers to put a stop to this ‘epidemic.’FDA Commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, said the ban is a major push against nearly 1,300 e-cigarette companies, like Juul, Blu, Logic and MarkTen, to restrict sales to minors. According to The Washington Post, the United States has seen a 75 percent increase in e-cigarette smoking among teenagers since 2007. Gottlieb said the rapid growth causes health and addiction threats to teenagers, which is why the issue needs to be taken more seriously. W. Va bishop under investigation for sexual harassment accusationsPope Francis issued an investigation of Bishop Michael J. Bransfield of W. Va in response to sexual harassment allegations tied to the Catholic Church. Church officials said Bransfield has been accused of molesting teenage boys. Bransfield denied the allegations and has resigned from the church.“PBS News Hour” reported that Francis has set up a meeting early next year with over 100 bishops to discuss the increase number of sexual abuse and cover up cases within the Catholic Church. Trump doubts Hurricane Maria death tollPresident Trump questioned the number of deaths attributed to Hurricane Maria, accusing the Democrats of inflating the count. Trump denied the government’s assessment that the hurricane took nearly 3,000 lives. He said a higher number was falsely generated to “make me look as bad as possible.” Trump’s tweets show he projects the death count to be in the range of 6 to 18. As of August 2018, Puerto Rican officials accepted the official death toll estimate to be as many as 2,975 people. Check back tomorrow for more.

Journalists accused of working for opposition : Reporters Without Borders protests to Prime Minister

first_img June 7, 2021 Find out more April 16, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists accused of working for opposition : Reporters Without Borders protests to Prime Minister RSF_en News Receive email alerts Dear Mr Prime Minister: In the leaflets, Straker and Titus are shown asking imaginary questions. Straker says: “Officer, the NDC pays me to ask you stupid questions so you better answer me or else.” Titus is saying: “If we the NDC get into office, the police don’t have any say, so you better answer my questions now or else.” The three politicians are shown making remarks about an alleged assault on the policeman by NDC supporters.These unfounded attacks directly question the professional honesty of the two journalists and could put them in physical danger, especially in the upcoming election campaign. The accusations against them go beyond the personal and undermine one of the main principles of the rule of law: freedom of information. The job of journalists everywhere is to ask questions so as to keep the public informed. Governments and civil servants, who answer to the public, must be the first to submit themselves to unrestricted public scrutiny.We approach you not just as prime minister and information minister (and thus regulator and guarantor of press freedom) but also as NNP political leader. We know the courts will deal with Straker’s legal complaint against the leaflet’s authors but in the meantime we ask you to make every effort to ensure that further attempts to intimidate journalists are not made. The job of journalists is much more important in an election year since the media enables the public to assess party programmes and make a free choice. We trust you will give this matter your best attention.

In this case, the High Court held that if the activities that are going on in the convent are predominantly religious, then, normally, buildings of the convent used for the said purpose should also qualify for exemption. A Full Bench of the High Court had held that buildings owned by educational institutions for providing hostel accommodation to students qualify for building tax exemption under clause (b) of Section 3(1) of the Act. Assailing these rulings of the High Court, the State contended that a building used principally for religious or educational purposes can only be a building that is used for religious/educational activity and not for activity which has no direct connection with religious/educational activity, such as residential quarters for nuns, priests or hostel accommodation for students. According to it, as no religious/educational activities are carried on at all in the buildings which house nuns and hostel accommodation which houses students, such buildings, not being principally used for religious purposes, cannot possibly be exempt under the Act.”A reading of the provision would show that the object for exempting buildings which are used principally for religious, charitable or educational purposes would be for core religious, charitable or educational activity as well as purposes directly connected with religious activity. One example will suffice to show the difference between a purpose that is directly connected with religious or educational activity and a purpose which is only indirectly connected with such activity. Take a case where, unlike the facts in Civil Appeal No. 202 of 2012, nuns are not residing in a building next to a convent so that they may walk over to the convent for religious instruction. Take a case where the neighbouring building to the convent is let out on rent to any member of the public, and the rent is then utilised only for core religious activity. Can it be said that the letting out at market rent would be connected with religious activity because the rental that is received is ploughed back only into religious activity? Letting out a building for a commercial purpose would lose any rational connection with religious activity. The indirect connection with religious activity being the profits which are ploughed back into religious activity would obviously not suffice to exempt such a building. But if on the other hand, nuns are living in a neighbouring building to a convent only so that they may receive religious instruction there, or if students are living in a hostel close to the school or college in which they are imparted instruction, it is obvious that the purpose of such residence is not to earn profit but residence that is integrally connected with religious or educational activity.”, the bench observed while it disagreed with the contentions raised by the State.Another contention raised by the state was that an exemption provision contained in a fiscal statute must be construed strictly and in the case of doubt or ambiguity must be construed in favour of the State. The state, to contend thus, relied on Commr. of Customs v. Dilip Kumar & Co. (2018) 9 SCC 1 where it was held that when there is ambiguity in exemption notification which is subject to strict interpretation, the benefit of such ambiguity cannot be claimed by the subject/assessee and it must be interpreted in favour of the Revenue. The bench, while rejecting the said contention, observed:It may be noticed that the 5-Judge Bench judgment did not refer to the line of authority which made a distinction between exemption provisions generally and exemption provisions which 30 have a beneficial purpose. We cannot agree with Shri Gupta’s contention that sub-silentio the line of judgments qua beneficial exemptions has been done away with by this 5-Judge Bench. It is well settled that a decision is only an authority for what it decides and not what may logically follow from it (see Quinn v. Leathem [1901] AC 495 as followed in State of Orissa v. Sudhansu Sekhar Misra (1968) 2 SCR 154 at 162,163) 24. This being the case, it is obvious that the beneficial purpose of the exemption contained in Section 3(1)(b) must be given full effect to, the line of authority being applicable to the facts of these cases being the line of authority which deals with beneficial exemptions as opposed to exemptions generally in tax statutes. This being the case, a literal formalistic interpretation of the statute at hand is to be eschewed. We must first ask ourselves what is the object sought to be achieved by the provision, and construe the statute in accord with such object. And on the assumption that any ambiguity arises in such construction, such ambiguity must be in favour of that which is exempted. Consequently, for the reasons given by us, we agree with 31 the conclusions reached by the impugned judgments of the Division Bench and the Full BenchCASE: GOVERNMENT OF KERALA vs. MOTHER SUPERIOR ADORATION CONVENT [CIVIL APPEAL NO. 202 OF 2012]CORAM: Justice RF Nariman and BR GavaiCITATION: LL 2021 SC 121Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Bag bother at the Bod

first_imgA new security policy has been implemented at the Bodleian Library, sparking fears that precious library materials will become endangered.For the first time, readers’ bags are no longer being checked by staff on arrival at the central Bodleian Library. The previous admission policy of bag searching upon entrance was described by OUSU as “extremely strict and supported by students”.Yet, in a radical break from past procedures, porters will now allow readers to enter the Upper and Lower Reading rooms without presenting their bags for inspection.This new and controversial policy has not been introduced in all the Bodleian Library buildings. Vigilant checks are still being carried out on arrival and exit in the Radcliffe Camera. Critics argue that this supports their claims that the new policy has been introduced for the wrong reasons.According to a Bodleian source, the recent security changes were introduced in response to severe funding cuts and staff shortages rather than fresh ideas about library security.However, a spokesperson from the Bodleian Library wavered any suggestion that the entrance policy was changed in response to a lack of funding. He said, “There is no recruitment freeze in place at the Libraries. Like many other public institutions, the Libraries, as part of the University of Oxford, are acting responsibly in the current economic climate by identifying where savings can be made, or where funding can be reallocated, to provide the best possible services for students and readers.”Students have expressed fears that hazardous materials could be brought into contact with invaluable reading materials if security becomes slack at the world-famous library.Robert Bourne, a History student at St. Hugh’s, expressed his concerns that both historical documents and students alike may be put at risk if bags are no longer checked on.He said, “This is absolutely disgraceful. The university simply must step in to protect students. The potential for inter-library carnage is quite unprecedented.”But not all students are so perturbed by the news. A second year History of Art student said, “I’m glad they have abolished the searches because I do enjoy a cheeky can of coke and a cupcake while I work, and now I can enjoy these comforts without the stress of sneaking them in.”The Bodleian Library assures readers that it takes the security of its collections and its buildings very seriously. Commenting on the recent changes, a spokesperson from the Bodleian Library said, “We keep the level of security under review, with the advice of the University Marshal. “A range of security measures are in place across library sites. We will not comment on specific library locations.”last_img read more
