In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: Getty Images. Divide and conquerWorld-famous drinks brand Coca Cola doesn’t appear to be slowing down in either popularity or growth. Coca Cola HBC is one of the world’s largest bottlers for The Coca‑Cola Company.With a £10bn market cap, its stock value has risen over 158% in the past five years. It has a P/E of 19, earnings per share of £1.43, and a dividend yield around 2%. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! UK equity markets have been enjoying a bull run for over 10 years now and many people worry this can’t last.  Hopefully, a market crash is not imminent, but it’s good to be prepared if it does rear its ugly head.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…Buy low, soar highLong-term investors should remember, a market crash provides a great opportunity to buy quality shares at cheap prices.Buying a stock when the market has crashed can be daunting because you’ll be wondering if it has further to fall. Timing the market is not an exact science and I think getting it right is more down to luck than any kind of skill.If you’re buying shares in solid companies that will rise in value over the long term, then the nitty-gritty of the price you pay for the stock shouldn’t really matter. Having confidence in the company you’re buying into is key.Rich pickingsPrice-to-earnings ratios (P/E) for many of the FTSE 100’s most favoured companies have reached overly expensive levels in this recent bull run. So, some long-term investors would welcome the opportunity to buy their favourite shares at a lower price.Therefore, a market correction is a double-edged sword. It’s not pleasant to see billions of pounds knocked off the value of the stock market, but it does bring opportunity.Buy-and-hold investors with the ability to ride out the bad times will be rewarded for their patience when the bull run returns.So, with that in mind, two FTSE 100 stocks that would appeal to me if their share prices were lower are Smith & Nephew (LSE:SN) and Coca-Cola HBC (LSE:CCH).Live long and prosperFeeling fitter and younger is a high priority for an ageing population looking to enjoy a worry-free retirement. This has driven the number of people undergoing joint replacements to record highs.Smith & Nephew is a medical tech company specialising in orthopaedics (including knee and hip replacements), along with sports medicine and wound management. The Smith & Nephew share price has enjoyed a 27% rise over the past year. This despite a period of uncertainty in the autumn when the chief executive unexpectedly resigned over a pay dispute.The company has a £25bn market cap, P/E of 23, earnings per share of 79p, and a dividend yield of approximately 1.5%.Its niche popularity and increasing demand mean it’s rarely a cheap stock to buy into. That’s why it’s one I’d leap at in a market crash. I don’t see demand declining soon, so I think it’s a relatively safe investment for the long term.last_img read more

House of Lords approves changes to probate fees

first_img Advertisement House of Lords approves changes to probate fees Melanie May | 20 December 2018 | News Tagged with: Finance legacies  213 total views,  1 views today  214 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis22 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis22 The House of Lords has agreed the changes to probate fees, which, it has been estimated, could cost the charity sector £10 million in reduced income.The Peers discussed the draft regulation on 18 December. The draft Non-Contentious Probate (Fee) Order introduces a new regime of fees for applications for a grant of probate, with a banded structure based on the value of the estate. Fees would be revised to rise to up to 0.5% of the value of the estate, with the estate value threshold rising from £5,000 to £50,000. This would give a sliding scale of fees rising from £250 to £6,000 on all estates worth £50,000 or more.There was some resistance however with some Peers comparing the proposed changes to a tax. Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames proposed that the House decline the changes, saying they would be “an abuse of the fee-levying power, since the proposed increased fees substantially exceed the cost involved in making grants of probate and would amount to a tax, which should only be introduced, if at all, by primary legislation.”However, 187 voted against declining the changes, versus 90 for.Lord Beecham also referred to the Order as one that “arguably amounts to a stealth tax”, proposing a motion to regret against the Order, on the grounds that the proposed fee structure was too far above the cost of the service.His motion was agreed however, with 186 members in favour, and 161 against. The motion however does not stop the Order, but gives the House the opportunity to put on record its regret that the increase in fees is far greater than the actual cost of the service.The regulations were presented as a Statutory Instrument (SI), meaning it must be debated in both Houses before it can be made law. It will now go before the House of Commons and could become law in April next year.In November, the Institute of Legacy Management also compared the changes to a stealth tax, saying that while it welcomed the drive to improve the operation of the Court Service and the need to balance the interests of taxpayers and Court Service users, the fees would have a significant impact on income for charities, and could reduce it by £10 million.

New commissioner to transform service

But when crime does takes place, as it does in all societies, we will put the victims of crime at the centre of everything we do and ensure crimes are investigated thoroughly and professionally.“I look forward to working with the community, the Policing Authority, the Department of Justice and other stakeholders, to transform An Garda Siochana into a 21st century police service.”Also welcoming the appointment, Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Justice, Deputy Niall Collins said that: “Noirin O’Sullivan took on the role of acting Garda Commissioner in March at a very difficult time for the force and has put in a solid performance since then. In taking up the permanent role of Commissioner she faces the substantial challenge of delivering on the reforms needed throughout our policing structures.“An Garda Síochána is going through a reform process which will involve many structural changes but I also feel it is extremely important that the needs of frontline policing not be forgotten in that process. The Government needs to ensure that the proper resources are made available to allow gardaí to police our communities effectively.“There is an historic opportunity to create a world class policing service in Ireland which not only serves and protects the public but is held up as an international example of best practice, transparency and accountability in years to come,” added Deputy Collins.last_img read more

I did not mean only financial corruption or deriving any pecuniary advantage. If what I have said caused hurt to any of them or to their families in any way, I regret the same. I unreservedly state that I support the institution of the judiciary and especially the Supreme Court of which I am a part, and had no intention to lower the prestige of the judiciary in which I have complete faith. I regret if my interview was misunderstood as doing so, that is, lower the reputation of the judiciary, especially the Supreme Court, which could never have been my intention at all.”The suo moto case was taken on the basis of a complaint made by Senior Advocate Harish Salve. The contempt proceedings pertain to allegations made by Salve towards Bhushan where Bhushan allegedly said that half of the last 16 Chief Justices were corrupt. As per the complaint, Bhushan also said in the interview that he had no proof for the allegations. The complaint was filed by Salve through an interlocutory application filed in the Sterlite case, in which he was the Amicus Curiae. On November 6, 2009, the complaint was placed before a bench comprising the then Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice S H Kapadia, which directed that the matter be listed before a 3-judge bench in which Justice Kapadia was not a member.
