Forget gold and Bitcoin. I’d buy these 2 fallen FTSE 100 shares to make a million

first_img G A Chester | Monday, 10th August, 2020 | More on: ABF ITV Image source: Getty Images I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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. Enter Your Email Address Due to this year’s stock market crash, many FTSE 100 shares now trade at low valuations. While there may be headwinds for a market recovery, the Footsie has always rebounded from crashes in the past. Indeed, often more quickly than many fearful investors expected.As such, now could be the right time to buy a selection of blue-chip shares while they’re on offer at low prices. Such shares could deliver higher long-term returns than currently popular (and arguably pricey) assets like gold and Bitcoin.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…With this in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that appear to have high-return potential after their price falls in 2020. They could boost your financial outlook, and help you make a million in the long run.One of the hardest-hit FTSE 100 sharesITV (LSE: ITV) shares have been among the heaviest fallers in the FTSE 100. Their value has dropped about 60% since the start of the year. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant negative impact on the business.The company has seen a big drop in demand for advertising. Also, its production unit, ITV Studios, was forced to halt shooting during the lockdown. Despite good global demand for its library content, group revenue fell 17% in the six months to 30 June.However, the company remained profitable. It said last week: “We have restarted many of our productions and we are having more positive conversations with advertisers and are seeing some signs of improvement in advertising demand.”As such, City analysts are forecasting an improving revenue trend through the second half of the year. And a continuing recovery in 2021.Prospect of impressive returnsITV has been investing heavily in data, technology, online and streaming in recent years. As such, the business has a strong prospect of long-term growth, and the outlook for the stock appears attractive.It’s trading at less than eight times current-year forecast earnings, and less than six times forecast earnings for 2021. This bargain-basement rating suggests investors could generate impressive returns from buying the stock today and holding it for the long term.A relatively resilient FTSE 100 shareAssociated British Foods (LSE: ABF) is another FTSE 100 stock that could be worth adding to a portfolio of UK shares. Like ITV Studios’ business, ABF’s value clothing chain Primark was shuttered during the lockdown period.However, the group’s several food businesses performed strongly. These businesses range from animal feeds to popular grocery brands, such as Twinings, Ovaltine and Ryvita.The defensive resilience of the food businesses means ABF’s shares haven’t suffered as badly as those of FTSE 100 peer ITV. They’re down 27% since the start of the year. Nevertheless, this is a substantial discount, and suggests ABF could offer good value for money.Make a millionNot surprisingly, with the forced closure of Primark, there’ll be a big hit to the group’s revenues and profits for its current financial year (ending 30 September). However, with the chain now open again for business, City analysts are forecasting a strong recovery in fiscal 2021.The stock currently trades at less than 16 times the forecast earnings. Historically, this is well below ABF’s average rating. Therefore, it’s another stock that may catalyse a portfolio of FTSE 100 shares, and increase your chances of making a million in the long run.

UK Fundraising bot shares content via Facebook Messenger

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 UK Fundraising bot shares content via Facebook Messenger Fundraisers can now stay up to date with the latest content from UK Fundraising, via a Facebook Messenger bot.The tool offers a simple conversation that lets fundraisers select the type of fundraising content they wish to receive from the site, and when they wish to receive it.New content from UK Fundraising is sent once a day, Monday to Friday, in the morning or in the afternoon.Readers are guided through a choice of content, to ensure that they receive just the content they want.UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake explained: “Initially they can choose news updates, blog posts, job alerts and events, or a combination of those. And what time of day to receive it. There is also the option to receive promotions from selected third party companies and agencies.“We shall be adding more content options in due course, so that fundraisers can sign up for specific content relevant to them, such as major gifts, law/policy, and leadership, or indeed content specific to a geographic region.”Email and Messenger?The bot mirrors the daily email updates that UK Fundraising has published since 2000. In fact, it goes further in that it lets fundraisers filter the type of content they receive, unlike the news updates which feature all the latest news and blog posts on the site.The bot isn’t intended to replace the email newsletter. It is simply another option for the growing numbers of people who prefer to use Messenger for updates from news sources, retailers, utilities and of course friends and family.Built by OpenThe bot was designed and built by Open, a full-service creative response agency, who helps some of the UK’s biggest charities “persuade people to do the right thing, right now”. Specifically, it was developed by Alfie Waldron, one of Open’s writers, as a side project. (Alfie was the 2016 winner of IWITOT for championing and talking with The Bee Lady). Open had been investigating the potential of chatbots for some of their clients, including a global chatbot for Unicef to launch their World Children’s Day celebration.Waldron said: “The potential uses for chatbots are endless. They’re a way to engage supporters, surprise and delight your audience, deliver great content and even process transactions. And when it comes to delivering personalised news, events and blog updates, they’re the perfect fit. This was a really exciting project to be a part of. With support from Paul de Gregorio, Open’s Director of Digital Engagement, the basic bot’s structure and functions were designed in a Friday afternoon session at Open and then built over a weekend last November. As such, it was probably the first bot to be used by a UK charity sector publication.De Gregorio said: “Howard knew that Open was exploring the potential of chatbots for our clients and came in for a chat about how UK Fundraising could integrate one into it’s offering. Before we knew it, we’d sketched out the design and functionality. Then it was just a case of building, testing and refining before the launch. We love how it’s turned out.” In the beginning, there were some efforts by UK Fundraising to introduce natural language processing functions to make it more interactive. These were scaled back due to complexity. But it remains an option to expand considerably what the bot (or another bot) can do with the extensive 23+ years of content on UK Fundraising. And indeed with partner content from other sources.last_img read more

Bernd Leno had a very good season, but Emiliano Martinez also performed excellently when Leno was out injured at the end of last season.

Asked who would be no.1 to start the season, Arteta told reporters: “I love to have two goalkeepers at the level of Bernd and Emi. “Last season, when Bernd got injured, if somebody had some doubts about Emi’s character or qualities then he’s shown what he’s able to do and he didn’t do it for one game, he did it for 10 or 11 games in a row.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more

Video: Syracuse’s Tyler Roberson Slams Home Crazy Alley-Oop vs. Duke

first_imgTyler Roberson slams home alley-oop dunk against Duke.Vine/Chris StoneFor whatever reason, Syracuse forward Tyler Roberson plays incredibly well whenever the Orange take the floor against Duke. In 2015, Roberson went for 19 points and 10 rebounds against Duke at home, and 16 points, nine rebounds at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Tonight, he has six points and two rebounds midway through the first half, and two of those points were the loudest of the game thus far. Gbinije to Tyler Roberson. Got up. https://t.co/nJTQHgVBaI— Chris Stone (@cstonehoops) January 19, 2016At first glance, Michael Gbinije’s pass looks off-target, but it doesn’t matter. Roberson can really jump, and he got up for that ridiculous one-handed finish.last_img
