3 reasons why I rate the GSK share price a buy today

See all posts by Alan Oscroft GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) has been through its ups and downs, having to rebuild its drugs development pipeline after the loss of some key patents. That was always going to take some time, but time is at the very heart of the long-term investing approach that we favour at The Motley Fool. I’m seriously upbeat about the long-term outlook for Glaxo, and I see the GSK share price as a top FTSE 100 buy right now. Here are three reasons why I think 2020 is a great time to buy.Covid-19The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the GSK share price in a strange way. The shares fell relatively gently in the early days of the crisis, and they started to recover quickly and strongly. At the time, a lot of investors were buying shares in pharmaceuticals companies in the hopes of getting rich through vaccine profits.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…On Wednesday, Glaxo announced that it and Sanofi intend to make 200 million doses of their in-development vaccine available to the COVAX facility. The intent of that is to make sure vaccines reach those in need worldwide, all subject to approvals. So wait… maybe it’s not all about making maximum short-term profit after all?I still think Covid-19 research is going to help boost the GSK share price in the long term. At the interim stage, Glaxo was talking of producing 1 billion doses in 2021. It seems increasingly unlikely that one vaccine will eradicate the virus, and I reckon Glaxo’s early expertise should place it at the leading edge of research in the coming years.GSK share price has fallenThe ‘no quick Covid-19 profits’ realisation probably lies, at least in part, behind the fall in the GSK share price since its recovery peak in May. Since then, the shares have relentlessly slid back. And today, GlaxoSmithKline is down 24% year-to-date, in line with the fall in the FTSE 100.Based on current forecasts, that fall puts GSK shares on a forward price-to-earnings multiple of under 12. The company does carry large debt, and we need to take that into account too. My Motley Fool colleague, Kevin Godbold, has estimated the firm’s debt-adjusted P/E at around 17. That’s a bit above the long-term FTSE average of about 14. But for a company of this quality, I see it as an attractive valuation. That’s reinforced in my mind by the Glaxo dividend, which looks set to yield 6%.Ageing affluent populationsBut is the GSK share price cheap when we look at the long-term future for the company? I think that’s a very big yes, and it’s largely down to the relentlessly rising demand for drugs to treat diseases of affluence.Respiratory illnesses, chronic inflammatory diseases, oncology. Those are all areas in which GlaxoSmithKline is focused. They’re all growing problems in developed affluent economies. And more and more parts of the world are gaining in affluence every year. On a more positive note, this means there is also a growing market for GSK’s consumer health products, including vitamins, minerals and supplements.I rate GlaxoSmithKline as one of the FTSE 100’s best long-term buys. And the current GSK share price weakness makes it even more attractive to me.

The politicians could care less about you. What they want in Apopka is another Orlando complete with out-of-control crime, out-of-control traffic, parking headaches and a downtown area just like Orlando full of bars and night time hookers, drunks and derelicts. The politicians don’t have the intelligence to realize GROWTH IS A CURSE. Their love of “growth” is because it means more tax revenues which directly translates into raises for themselves and of course more toll roads with “executives” of the toll roads TAKING an obscene salary just like they currently do.

How Salvation Army’s red kettles became a Christmas tradition

first_img The Anatomy of Fear By Diane Winston, Associate Professor and Knight Center Chair in Media & Religion, University of Southern California, Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and first published on theconversation.com.Tinseled trees and snowy landscapes are not the only signs of the upcoming holiday season. Red kettles, staffed by men and women in street clothes, Santa suits, and Salvation Army uniforms also telegraph Christmastime.The Army is among America’s top-grossing charities. In 2015, its 25,000 bell-ringers helped raise an all-time high of US$149.6 million. That was part of the year’s almost $3 billion in revenue from bequests, grants, sales, in-kind donations and investments as well as direct contributions.William Booth, an English evangelist, founded the Salvation Army in 1878 as a religious outreach to London’s poor. How a British evangelical church became an American icon is an ongoing interest of mine.Entry into the United StatesWilliam Booth, founder of the Salvation Army.AP PhotoBooth, who called himself “The General,” fashioned his Army on Britain’s military. From the start, his “soldiers” wore uniforms and they described their mission in martial terms. Salvationists marched through the streets of London’s East End, a neighborhood of poor immigrants, with brass bands and female preachers. Booth and his followers also pursued “sinners” and frequently preached in bars, brothels and theaters.Booth’s plan was to send his army worldwide, and his first stop was the United States. One of his early recruits had migrated to Philadelphia, and wrote to Booth about the residents’ need for salvation. In 1880, a small party of British Salvationists debarked at Castle Garden, New York’s first immigration center. The group immediately started singing hymns set to popular melodies and marching through lower Manhattan.During the next few days, the English “soldiers” tacked up posters, similar to ads for commercial entertainments, for a prayer service at Harry Hill’s, a popular dance hall, theater and saloon. The venue was not only thick with drunkards, prostitutes and pleasure seekers, its unlikeliness as a religious meeting place guaranteed press attention.Such unexpected behavior did bring the Army to the public’s attention. Their boisterousness, even in service of saving souls, was criticized by New York’s clergy and ridiculed in newspapers and magazines. That the Army featured female preachers at a time when most Protestant groups did not ordain women only added to its notoriety.But the Army did not surrender. Pressing their “invasion” beyond New York City, the soldiers traveled first to Philadelphia and later nationwide. Their exuberance attracted young people and women to the cause.Young people liked the notion of a military crusade for religious purposes, and women joined because the Army offered them positions of leadership and authority. In fact, William Booth’s daughter-in-law, Maud Ballington, followed by his two daughters, Emmaand Evangeline, headed the American Salvation Army from 1887 to 1950.Kettles for Christmas dinnerIn both Britain and the U.S., Salvationists saw their mission as twofold: converting sinners and assisting the needy.In the Army’s perspective, the two went hand in hand, which is why members opened shelters for addicts, alcoholics and prostitutes. Yet they also sought to aid “down and outers,” their name for the needy. Among their early outreaches were Christmas dinners for the urban poor. But finding funds for food and gifts was difficult.Salvation Army mini Red Kettle and bell at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State park. Robin Wendell/Flickr.com, CC BYBy 1891, Salvationists had outposts nationwide. In San Francisco, Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee was eager to serve a Christmas feast for a thousand of the city’s poorest residents. Frustrated by his lack of success, he decided to improvise. Grabbing a crab pot from the local wharf, he hung it from a tripod at a busy intersection. Above the pot was a sign: “Fill the Pot for the Poor – Free Dinner on Christmas Day.” McFee’s campaign was a success.Word spread and the kettles soon provided Christmas dinners for thousands nationwide.The kettle also helped rehabilitate the Army’s image. Instead of seeing Salvationists as an unruly pack of religious rebels, many Americans recognized their work with the poor. At a time when neither state nor federal governments provided a social safety net, the Army offered meals, beds, work and medical facilities to destitute men and women.But it was the Salvationists’ service in World War I that sealed the deal. Eager to support the American war effort, Salvation Army leaders sent “Sallies,” the popular nickname for Army women, to the French front. The Sallies set up huts where they fried donuts, sewed buttons, wrote letters and otherwise “mothered” the troops.The women’s faith, fortitude and friendship touched many young soldiers. One wrote in his letter home:“These good women create an atmosphere that reminds us of home, and out of the millions of men over there not one ever dreams of offering the slightest sign of disrespect or lack of consideration to these wonderful women.”By the war’s end, the Army had become a symbol of American humanitarianism, and fundraising was much easier. But after the 1920s, the Army’s evangelical crusade took a back seat to social service delivery, at least in their public relations. It was easier to raise money for helping the poor than for converting them.Despite challenges, an American iconToday, many contributors do not realize the Army is a church, a fact that has caused many Army leaders consternation.And, much like other churches, its growth has stalled. Since 2000, it only has approximately 90,000 members. Nonetheless, it continues to deliver social services nationwide. In 2017, according to its own records, the Army served over 50 million meals, operated 141 rehabilitation centers and provided shelter for almost 10 million people. It also provided adult and child day care, job assistance, disaster relief, medical care and community centers.But like any other long-established institution, the Army has its challenges. Most recently, LGBT groups alleged discrimination in service provision and in hiring.The Army has responded with its own statements of how it is “open and inclusive to all people.”It also faces new problems ranging from a shortage of bell ringers in some cities to fewer kettle contributions as people carry less cash.‘Guys and Dolls’ musical. Poughkeepsie Day School/Flickr.com, CC BY-NC-NDYet the Army remains a familiar symbol for religious and philanthropic outreach. Each year, when high school and college actors perform “Guys and Dolls,” the Army graces American stages. This popular musical, inspired by a real-life Salvationist, captures the missionaries’ zealous dedication. And this holiday season, Grammy-award winning singer Meghan Trainer kicked off the 2018 Red Kettle Campaign during the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day game halftime show.Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee’s legacy lives on – providing inspiration to millions of Americans, whether they care about religion or not.

Harden helps Rockets eliminate Jazz with 100-93 win

first_imgThe Jazz cut the lead to 4 with less than 30 seconds left in the third after scoring four straight points, but Nene made a basket at the buzzer to leave Houston up 75-69 entering the fourth. After scoring 31 points to lead Utah to the victory in Game 4, Mitchell managed just 12 points on a night he missed all nine of his 3-point attempts. D’Antoni on his team’s win: “Everybody contributed something and it’s by their heart and just their tenacity to get the win. Going forward we’re going to need the same thing.” FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailHOUSTON (AP) — In a series where their shots weren’t falling like normal, the Houston Rockets managed to close it out with some tough defense. Harden blocked a shot by Ruby Gobert on Utah’s next possession and he made two free throws to extend the lead to 98-93 with 38 seconds left. Associated Press Houston advanced to the Western Conference semifinals for the third straight season and will face the winner of the Los Angeles Clippers-Golden State Warriors series. “I’m upset but I’m going to be better,” the second-year player said. “Simply put. I wasn’t tonight and I’ll be better.” The Jazz opened the fourth quarter with an 8-0 run to take a 77-75 lead with 9 minutes left. Rubio had two steals and a basket to help Utah go on top. Jazz coach Quin Snyder lamented the difficulties of dealing with a veteran coach like Mike D’Antoni and perennial All-Stars Paul and Harden. Houston ended its scoring drought after that, scoring the next five points, capped by a three-point play from Harden to make it 80-77. April 24, 2019 /Sports News – Local Harden helps Rockets eliminate Jazz with 100-93 win Rockets: Tucker set a playoff career-high with four blocks. … Paul and Gordon had 15 points apiece. … Houston made 13 3-pointers. … The Rockets had 12 steals. James Harden scored 26 points and the Rockets outlasted the Utah Jazz 100-93 on Wednesday night to win their first-round playoff series 4-1. Donovan Mitchell, who was just 4 of 22, missed a 3-pointer after that and Chris Paul added two more free throws to secure the victory. The Rockets had 12 steals and 12 blocks, the first playoff game where they had double figures in both since Game 5 of the 1994 Western Conference finals, just before they went on to win their first title. Austin Rivers ended Utah’s run with a 3-pointer to extend Houston’s lead to 71-63. Tags: Houston Rockets/James Harden/NBA/Utah Jazz Royce O’Neal came off the bench to lead Utah with 18 points, Rubio had 17 and Jae Crowder added 15. Gobert wasn’t much of a factor in this one, scoring just nine points with 10 rebounds.center_img Houston trailed by seven late in the second quarter before using a 14-3 run to lead by four entering the third. Harden scored eight of his 10 first-half points during that run. The Rockets kept it going to start the third, using a 10-2 spurt to make it 56-44 with about 10 minutes left in the quarter. Harden and Tucker had 3-pointers in that span and Capela added a dunk. Rubio made a 3-pointer for Utah before Paul scored five quick points to extend Houston’s advantage to 85-80 with 7 minutes left. Harden struggled to get going early and didn’t score in the first quarter. But after missing his first seven shots and 11 of his first 12 attempts, he finally found a rhythm. Written by “We didn’t want to go back to Utah,” Paul said. “We wanted to take care of business tonight. All night we were talking about energy. It’s always hard to beat a team and close them out.” “I felt a lot better,” Capela said. “I definitely felt like another person than (I did) the last game.” MITCHELL’S PERFORMANCE “We didn’t make as many shots as we wanted to … but these last few games we hung our hat on defense,” Harden said. “He’s confident,” Harden said. “You see what he did last game. He’s capable of taking over a game. Once he gets more comfortable in his role … the sky’s the limit for him.” THEY SAID IT Danuel House made a 3-pointer and Harden added a layup seconds later to leave Houston up by 11 later in the quarter. But O’Neal made a 3 soon after that to before Mitchell added a three-point play to get Utah within 68-63 with about 2 minutes left in the third. TIP-INS Harden and Paul were complimentary of Mitchell despite his struggles on Wednesday night and know he has a bright future. “They’re so cerebral that they’re able to find weaknesses in your defense,” he said. Jazz: Utah made 9 of 38 3-pointers. … Joe Ingles had 11 points and nine assists. … Rubio had 11 assists. The Rockets got a solid game from Clint Capela, who had 16 points and 10 rebounds. He acknowledged having trouble breathing in the Game 4 loss because of an upper respiratory infection and was held to just four points. Ricky Rubio cut Houston’s lead to 94-93 on a jump shot with about a minute left. P.J. Tucker missed two free throws, but grabbed a loose ball seconds later and was fouled again.

first_imgAn Oxford researcher has pegged Republican Party’s presidential hopeful Donald Trump at 171 on the PPI-R test for psychopathic traits.The study, which was drawn up by Oxford’s Dr Kevin Dutton, saw him and a collection of political experts estimate Trump’s response to 56 psychometric questions. The results place him two points above Adolf Hitler, who scores 169.The test “does not say whether someone is a psychopath,” explains Dr Dutton, “it scores them on eight traits that contribute to a psychopathic character.“Both great and terrible leaders score higher than the general population for psychopathic traits, but it is the mix of those traits that determines success.“Some of those traits, such as fearlessness or stress immunity, can be positive. Others, such as blame externalisation or being unconcerned about the future, are more likely to be negative. One, cold-heartedness, can contribute to good and bad leadership.”Trump scored higher than Hitler on “social influence” and “fearlessness”, but lower on traits usually considered bad, such as “Machiavellian egocentricity” and “cold-heartedness”. One trait both figures share is “blame externalisation”, a common feature of populist politics.The findings, which were published in the journal Scientific American Mind, also measured the estimated score of Hillary Clinton, who was found to have a very high score for “Machiavellian egocentricity”. On the measure for “fearless dominance”, traditionally associated with strong presidencies, Trump’s score was higher.The study is another example of the worldwide Trump phenomenon reaching Oxford, after students organised a protest against his candidacy in March. Dr Dutton, who included Trump as part of a wider study on the relationship between psychopathy and political leadership, was nonetheless keen to stress that “in the end, while both score relatively highly, it will be up to voters to decide if whether their mix of positive and negative traits should send them to the Oval Office.”last_img read more
