Kirsteen Mackay | Wednesday, 18th November, 2020 | More on: AEP Jim Rogers is a successful stock market investor with a high profile. He shot to fame in the 1970s after founding the incredibly successful Quantum Fund with billionaire investor George Soros. Talking recently about the 2020 pandemic and its effect on the global economy, Rogers said it’s the worst economic time in his lifetime (he’s 78). He remains bullish on gold and silver but has no interest in cryptocurrency and believes Bitcoin will ultimately be worthless.Jim Rogers likes agriculture stocksAlthough an upbeat publicity-hound, and successful investor, Rogers is a perpetual bear when it comes to the markets. Still, one area he’s always maintained an interest in investing in is agriculture. That’s because we’ve all got to eat, no matter what kind of shape the world is in.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…Through good times and bad, food is a necessity and that won’t change. However, in recent years agricultural markets have suffered, particularly during 2020, as supply chains crumbled and lockdowns hampered the food chain. Jim Rogers sees this as a perfect opportunity to snap up cheap shares to hold for the long term.Anglo-Eastern Plantations share price surgesSo how do I use Jim Rogers’ investing advice? I begin by researching agriculture stocks.One UK agriculture stock I’ve been considering is Anglo-Eastern Plantations (LSE: AEP). After plummeting 45% in the March market crash, the Anglo-Eastern Plantations share price has almost retraced to its January highs. Now riding the November rally, it’s up 16% this month alone.It released its Q3 trading update last week. The group reported a strong balance sheet, a reduction in debt and net cash balance of $90.2m, up 11% year-on-year. Its production of fresh fruit bunches for the first nine months of the year increased by 6% but total crude palm oil production was slightly down on 2019. The price of crude palm oil has rocketed up 26% due to the effects of Covid-19 on the economy.Anglo-Eastern Plantations constructed its fourth biogas plant in North Sumatra, but can’t sell excess electricity until the pandemic is brought under control in the region.While the increasing crude palm oil price looks set to continue, recurring Covid-19 waves may keep demand suppressed. Yet the potential for a widespread vaccine rollout gives rise to hope. Anglo-Eastern Plantations has a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 18 and earnings per share are 31p. This stock has short-term risk, but it could have further upside, and I’d consider buying in the next dip.Cheap share with added incomeCarr’s Group is another UK agriculture stock I think might attract Jim Rogers’ interest. It operates internationally and has several divisions. Its offerings include livestock supplementation products, animal feeds and fuels. Besides these, it sells farm machinery, clothing, and pet supplies through its retail locations. It also has an engineering division servicing the defence, pharma, and energy sectors.Carr’s agricultural division has not been overly affected by the pandemic, and although the low oil price and lockdowns have slightly hampered its engineering arm, I think this will resume with rigour once we bring the pandemic under control. Carr’s P/E is below 9 and its EPS is 13p. It also has a reasonable dividend yield of 4%. I like how diversified it is and would consider adding it to a long-term portfolio.

Solidarity brings water to Flint

first_imgWater You Fighting For? It’s more than a great play on words. It’s a grassroots organization in Flint, Mich., founded by mothers Melissa Mays and Lee Anne Walters, who refused to sit back and watch their children suffer. WYFF has been protesting the toxic Flint water for almost two years. Mays said in a national interview: “When your 12-year-old wakes up in the middle of the night crying because his bones hurt and there is nothing you can do, no creams, no medicine that you can give him to ease his pain, that’s infuriating. When your youngest can’t go anywhere because his white blood cell count is four, and his immune system is so compromised you’re worried he is going to get sick with anybody breathing on him, that’s awful.“When your oldest is starting to struggle in school subjects that were very easy to him,” continued Mays, “there’s nothing more than I want to do than scream and yell and that’s what we did for over a year, scream and yell, ‘This isn’t right, stop it, tell us the truth.’” (, Jan. 22)Now, because residents like Mays organized and fought back, the Flint water crisis is a national scandal, even making the front page of the New York Times. Two officials of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the regional head of the Environmental Protection Agency have resigned in disgrace. The DEQ failed to instruct the Flint water department to add anti-corrosive chemicals to the water when Flint stopped using water from the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department and began tapping into the polluted Flint River. The DEQ’s bad instructions allowed Flint system pipes to leach deadly lead into the water, leaving the whole city of 100,000, including 9,000 children under age 6, poisoned.Calls for governor’s arrestThe primary target of community anger is Gov. Rick Snyder, a reactionary Republican who has been deflecting blame while scraping up a woefully inadequate $108 million in state and federal funds for Flint. Political pressure forced Snyder — who by state law has immunity from the Freedom of Information Act — to release emails between him and other state officials about Flint’s water. Now it should be impossible for Snyder to escape criminal responsibility. Despite saying “I’m sorry” to Flint residents over two dozen times in his State of the State speech on Jan. 19 in the State House in Lansing, his disdainful indifference and lack of remorse were evident.“Arrest Snyder” has become a rallying cry. Signs against him were popular at Detroit’s annual Martin Luther King march on Jan. 18, which included a Flint delegation led by Mays. Later that day people picketed Snyder’s newly purchased swank condominium in downtown Ann Arbor. The following day, 500 people demonstrated in bitter cold outside Snyder’s annual speech, making enough noise to be heard inside the Capitol. Some protesters carried torches and pitchforks.Activists are also demanding the firing of former Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley, who now oversees the Detroit Public Schools system and who carried out the decision to draw water from the Flint River. On Jan. 20, the day President Barack Obama visited the North American International Auto Show, another teacher sick-out over cuts, huge class sizes and dangerous building conditions closed most Detroit public schools. Some 500 DPS teachers, along with Flint residents, picketed the auto show. The main demand was that these two criminals, Earley and Snyder, be punished.Emergency Management & water justiceThe movement is fighting for more than the ousting of a few perpetrators, however, and calls for an end to Emergency Management. Public Act 436 allows the governor to appoint an Emergency Manager as dictator over a city or school district deemed to be in financial distress — rendering elected local and school officials powerless. PA 436 makes paying the banks the first budgetary priority.All but one of the cities and school boards in Michigan that have had an Emergency Manager are majority African American. Half of Michigan’s African-American population — compared to 2 percent of the white population — has been under Emergency Management. Flint Democracy Defense League, formed to oppose Emergency Management, is now deep in the fight for water justice. League representative Nayyirah Shariff has called for Snyder’s arrest, saying that “he can take his apology and flush it down the toilet.” (Democracy Now!, Jan. 8) The FDDL and WYFF have formed the Coalition for Clean Water.Water justice groups in Detroit and Flint have been supporting each other, reminding the public that tens of thousands of households in Detroit remain without water after a brutal shutoff policy was instituted in 2014 under Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr. A People’s Tribunal Jan. 23 drew 200 people and found Snyder and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan guilty of depriving people of water.Thanks to heroes like Mays and Shariff, Flint has gained the world’s solidarity. Donations of money, water and supplies have come from celebrities like Cher, Michael Moore, Meek Mill, Big Sean and Pearl Jam; Muslim communities in Detroit suburbs of Troy and Dearborn; the Little River Band tribe; Teamsters in Minneapolis; and of course United Auto Workers locals around the country. It was in Flint in 1937 that the heroic 44-day sit-down strike won the first UAW contract with General Motors. People all over the U.S. have joined the people of Flint in saying, “Water is a human right — fight, fight, fight!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Gulf Coast prepares for Alberto as heavy rain, gusty winds hit Florida

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Subtropical storm Alberto is delivering heavy rain and gusty winds to Florida on Sunday morning with current projections showing the storm making landfall in the Panhandle as a tropical storm on Monday.Mississippi, Alabama and Florida all pre-emptively declared a state of emergency on Saturday.Alberto is about 330 miles south of Apalachicola, Florida, on Sunday morning at 5 a.m. The storm is moving north-northeast at 13 mph with winds at 40 mph. Winds of 40 mph extend outward from the center of the storm up to 150 miles.The storm is producing winds and rains over southern Florida early Sunday. On Saturday evening, a wind gust of 47 mph was reported by the National Weather Service in Key West, Florida.Tropical storm warnings and watches have been issued for parts of the Mississippi coast all the way to the western Gulf Coast of Florida. Tampa, Florida; Sarasota, Florida; and Fort Myers, Florida, are under a tropical storm warning for tropical storm conditions arriving on Saturday.Alberto will move further north in the Gulf of Mexico, passing west of the peninsula of Florida. Alberto’s heavy rains and gusty winds remain predominantly on the right side of the storm, and therefore heavy rain and some gusty winds are expected across much of Florida on Sunday.Additionally, some of the strong tropical thunderstorms east of the center of circulation could spawn brief tornadoes. There is a threat for a few tornadoes for much of the southern half of Florida, including Tampa, Fort Myers, Miami and West Palm Beach. The strongest tropical thunderstorms could also have rainfall rates exceeding 2 inches per hour, which could trigger flash flooding.On Monday, Alberto is forecast to make landfall somewhere along the northern Gulf Coast — likely somewhere along the coastal region of the Florida Panhandle or southern Alabama. Regardless of exact landfall location, strong tropical downpours are expected for much of the Gulf Coast on Memorial Day, with heavy rain causing flash flooding across much of the Gulf Coast region.Alberto — or what remains of it — will move into the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday.Rainfall remains the most widespread threat from Alberto. Isolated parts of the Gulf Coast could receive up to a foot of rain. Locally, more than 8 inches of rain is possible in parts of the Florida Panhandle, southern Alabama and southwest Georgia. In the Florida Keys and southern Florida, a widespread 3 to 6 inches of rain is likely, with up to 10 inches possible locally.Flash flood watches have been posted for much of Florida, and along the Gulf Coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and southwest Georgia. Additionally, Alberto is pushing tropical moisture north. New flash flood watches have been issued for parts of the Carolinas, where 2 to 6 inches of rain is possible.Heat comes to central USWhile the Southeast deals with Alberto, Sunday will be another day of very hot temperatures throughout the central U.S. Widespread 90-degree temperatures are expected across the region. Chicago saw its first 90-degree day on Saturday — a little more than a week ahead of average.On Sunday, the heat will slide just slightly to the east, but many spots — including Minneapolis and Des Moines, Iowa — will see another day of temperatures in the 90s.
