Should I buy these cheap FTSE 100 stocks for July?

first_img Indeed, I’d much rather buy this top-quality FTSE 100 share which The Motley Fool’s analysts have picked out. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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 Amazon, Flutter Entertainment, and Flutter Entertainment PLC. The Motley Fool UK has recommended the following options: long January 2022 $1,920 calls on Amazon and short January 2022 $1,940 calls on Amazon. 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. Should I buy these cheap FTSE 100 stocks for July? Royston Wild | Thursday, 17th June, 2021 | More on: ENT SBRY Image source: Getty Images There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! There are plenty of top UK shares that could soar in value when they release fresh trading details in July. In this article I’m considering whether or not I should buy these cheap FTSE 100 shares before they update investors next month.A FTSE 100 firecrackerI think buying Entain (LSE: ENT) shares could be a good idea before the release of fresh financials. The FTSE 100 gambling giant is scheduled to release second quarter trading numbers on 8 July.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…Online bookmakers enjoyed a stellar year in 2020 as Covid-19 lockdowns forced existing gamblers onto the web and created a new legion of betting enthusiasts. This is why Entain’s share price soared 147% during the course of the year. Latest financials released in April showed that the Footsie firm has kept its momentum going, too. It enjoyed a 33% rise in net gaming revenues between January and March.The threat of severe, profits-sapping regulation changes are an ever-present risk for gambling companies like this. Indeed, Entain took a whack in the first quarter of 2021 from new laws introduced in Germany. But I think the FTSE 100 firm has enough about it to generate strong profits growth in the near-term and beyond. Entain has exceptionally popular brands like partypoker, Coral, and bwin spanning the casino and sports betting markets.It also has terrific exposure to the fast-growing US marketplace, one which Flutter Entertainment chief executive Peter Jackson thinks will be worth $20bn by 2025. Today Entain trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. And this makes it too cheap to miss in my book.A risk too far?I might be interested in buying the blue-chip UK leisure share for my ISA this July. But J Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY) is a cheap FTSE 100 share I wouldn’t touch with a bargepole today.Sure, the Sainsbury’s share price has risen 30% during the past 12 months. But this comes despite the company swinging to a hefty £261m pre-tax loss in its most recent financial year (to February 2021). This came despite a near-8% improvement in grocery sales in the period as Covid-19 turbocharged trade across its online operations.There’s no doubt that the FTSE 100 retailer’s Internet proposition is one of the best in the business. It’s an area in which Sainsbury is investing heavily in order to exploit this fast-growing channel to its fullest, too. But I’m not convinced that this will help keep the wolf from the door.Okay, Sainsbury won’t face the whopping one-off costs that it endured during coronavirus-hit 2020 moving forwards. But the cost of trying to compete with the rapidly expanding cheaper retailers Aldi and Lidl, along with the entry of Amazon both on the high street and online, will remain significant.I think these growing competitive pains present a significant risk to the profitability of Sainsbury. So I’m happy to ignore the FTSE 100 firm despite its rock-bottom forward PEG reading of 0.1. Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’!

Drones Aren’t Just the Future, They’re the Right Now

first_img Previous articleSmall Refinery Exemptions Destroy Demand for BiodieselNext articleAnother Good Indiana Harvest Window Ahead Eric Pfeiffer SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Oct 18, 2018 SHARE Drones Aren’t Just the Future, They’re the Right Now Home Indiana Agriculture News Drones Aren’t Just the Future, They’re the Right Now Facebook Twitter Drones Aren’t Just the Future, They’re the Right NowThe Internet, the smartphone, and online shopping: all of these had their skeptics when they first launched. Now, they’re commonplace. They improve efficiency and, ultimately, your bottom line. Could the same be said for drones? Many see them as toys or as too expensive. Purdue Extension Corn Specialist (and licensed drone pilot) Dr. Bob Nielsen says that is not the case. He says it’s tough to estimate how many farmers have adopted drones as part of their farm operation, but he senses that the percentage is low.“I think it’s going to accelerate as more and more people realize they’re relatively inexpensive and what kind of photography we get from them. Folks like myself and some of my colleagues here at Purdue, our county extension educators who are working with drones, all of us are trying to come up with the good examples of ways that we can use them in a meaningful way that will somehow improve our bottom line in agriculture.”And what are some of those examples?“There’s a lot of inherent value to being able to fly your fields whenever you want, as often as you want, to simply look for the development of problems. Today’s technologies don’t allow us to diagnose from the air, but they at least point out the problems visually and then give us the wherewithal or the encouragement to then, on the ground, to get out to those areas of the field and start diagnosing what the causes are.”Purdue Extension specialists will be at the Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo to demonstrate and share some of their research. The show is Dec. 11, 12, and 13 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, and their demonstrations will be at 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30 each day of the expo.The Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo has announced a Phantom 4 drone (UAV) will be given away each day of the Expo. A winner will be drawn from those who register for and attend the show on the day the drawing is made. The selection will be made each afternoon at 2 pm, and the individual must be present to win. No purchase is necessary; admission to the show is free.More info can be found at Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Four-year sentence for online journalist who posted dissident ayatollah’s sermon

first_img December 1, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Four-year sentence for online journalist who posted dissident ayatollah’s sermon News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the four-year prison sentence which a special court for the clergy in the religious city of Qom imposed on online journalist and cleric Mojtaba Lotfi on 29 November for disseminating the views of Ayatollah Hussein Ali Montazeri and for “publicity against the government.” to go further Help by sharing this information February 25, 2021 Find out more Organisation News Follow the news on Iran Reporters Without Borders condemns the four-year prison sentence which a special court for the clergy in the religious city of Qom imposed on online journalist and cleric Mojtaba Lotfi on 29 November for disseminating the views of Ayatollah Hussein Ali Montazeri and for “publicity against the government.” The court also sentenced Lotfi, who has been held in Qom since 8 October, to five years of banishment from the city after completing the jail term. “The special court for the clergy operates outside of any conventional legal framework,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This verdict is unfair and was adopted without Lotfi being given any chance to defend himself. As well as being a human rights scandal, Lotfi’s imprisonment is an unacceptable attempt to intimidate the blogosphere. We call for his release.” An aide to Ayatollah Montazeri, a well-known opponent of Supreme Guide Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Lotfi was arrested in Qom on 8 October after posting a sermon by Montazeri online. In the sermon, Montazeri criticised President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for saying Iran was “the world’s freest country” ( The day after Lotfi’s arrest, intelligence ministry officials searched his home in Qom, in the centre of the country, confiscating his computer=s hard drive and various personal documents. The special court for the clergy was created by Ayatollah Khomeiny in 1979 to try clerics who collaborated with the former regime during the revolution. Revived by Ayatollah Khamenei, the revolution’s current Supreme Guide, it is regarded as illegal by some lawyers and human rights activists. The accused person is not normally permitted a defence lawyer or, if the court exceptionally allows them to be represented, it is a mullah (a cleric and doctor in Islamic law), who acts as their lawyer. A mullah himself, Lotfi used to work as a journalist for Khordad, a pro-reform newspaper that was suspended in 2000. He was first arrested in May 2004 in Qom after posting an article entitled “Respect for human rights in cases involving the clergy” on, a website about Qom. He was sentenced in August 2004 to three and a half years in prison for disseminating “lies” online. He was later released on bail pending the outcome of an appeal hearing, for which a date was never set. Lotfi has lung problems caused by injuries sustained during the Iran-Iraq war of 1980-88. The magazine Ayandeh-é-No (“New Future”) was meanwhile suspended on 29 November under article 16 of the press law for failing to appear regularly. A few days before its suspension – ordered by the Commission for the Authorisation and Surveillance of the Press, an offshoot of the Ministry for Culture and Islamic Guidance – the magazine’s editor had announced that a new issue was about to be brought out with the help of the staff of Shahrvand Emrouz, a weekly that was suspended on 5 November.
