Why the Netflix share price makes it an instant buy for me

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Tom Rodgers | Monday, 10th August, 2020 | More on: NFLX TomRodgers has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Netflix. 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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address From 2009 to 2020, the Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) share price returned over 11,000% to investors. A £1,000 investment a decade ago would give you more than £111,000 today.Despite these incredible gains I think the Netflix share price can — and will — go much higher. In this article I’ll tell you exactly why I’m buying it as a long-term hold for my portfolio.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…Netflix is the Google of TVNetflix is a cultural phenomenon. It’s one of those global brands that has become inextricably linked with the thing it produces.Tell a friend or a colleague about a new show you like today. What will be their first question? Most likely: “Is it on Netflix?”Global lockdowns have helped further cement it in the public consciousness. And this has been borne out in the numbers.A chart of the Netflix share price looks like a pleasing exponential curve. And now is a great time to buy, in my opinion. The stock has dipped around $50 per share from its all-time July 2020 high — while remaining in an uptrend.ETF, fund or direct?If you want exposure to the Netflix share price in your Stocks and Shares ISA or SIPP, you could choose to buy shares direct, or you could choose to hold them as part of an ETF or fund.Just bear in mind that while UK funds will hold Netflix, they will also hold a diversified mix of lots of other stocks and shares. So if you only want Netflix and not Facebook, for example, then you might be better buying the shares directly in your ISA.If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to fill in a W8-BEN form to hold US shares in your UK portfolio. The forms are usually easily available through your ISA provider’s website and take around no more than 10 minutes to complete.No dividendsLike Amazon, Netflix doesn’t pay a dividend, but this isn’t a deal-breaker for me. I’m happy for the company to use all the spare cash it has to keep improving its subscriber base.Like Amazon, I’m confident the company will continue to grow its earnings every year and command a higher share price in future.Will the Netflix share price keep growing?All those £5.99 and £11.99 monthly packages add up to produce some pretty stonking revenue reports.But as a first mover and market leader Netflix now has some pretty stiff domestic competition in the race for monthly subscribers. Disney+, HBO Max and Hulu are catching up.However, Netflix now has a foothold in 190 international markets, and is growing fastest in India and across the Asia Pacific region.While US subscribers are only increasing 4% per quarter, that number is nearly 15% per quarter in Eastern markets. And these regions are producing an ever greater proportion of annual revenue.By the end of 2019, Netflix pulled in over $20bn in revenue from 167m subscribers. Then the pandemic happened. By July 2020, it had amassed an extra 25 million viewers to take it to 192.5m subscribers.And these customers stay with the streaming giant far longer than with the competition. Studies show the firm maintains just a 9% ‘churn rate’ of customers cancelling their subscriptions and turning to rival streamers.Becoming the number one player in overseas markets will keep the Netflix share price growing for years to come, I feel.

It’s a knockout: The RaboDirect Pro12 Semi-finals

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Point to prove: Scarlets head coach Simon Easterby is hoping that his side can upset some large odds to defeat UlsterBy Alan DymockPLAY-OFF RUGBY is as nerve shredding as it is rewarding. Months of hard work can be undone in one high-pressure showdown. It is completely different to regular-season rugby and for the four teams participating in the RaboDirect Pro12 semi-finals, winning the whole thing would mean a change in league fortunes.Table-toppers Ulster last won the league in 2006. Opponents Llanelli Scarlets last triumphed in ’04. Leinster have been waiting since 2008 to win the league and Glasgow Warriors have never lifted the trophy. Which undoubtedly makes for a tense weekend.Ulster v ScarletsDing-dong wingers: Bowe has a test against fellow Lion NorthShould Ulster defeat Scarlets tonight then they will be the home side for the final, a final that, due to capacity problems with Ravenhill, means that the province will opt for Dublin’s RDS as their ‘home’ venue.It is expected that Ulster will do it against a Welsh province that just squeaked into the play-offs at the expense of the Ospreys. Mark Anscombe’s side started the season in red-hot form and looked likely to steamroller their way to finals in the Pro12 and the Heineken Cup. They spluttered like a jumbo jet running on chip fat halfway through the season, but they still possess the potential to menace their way to the title.Scarlets, on the other hand, have the potential to counter-punch with vivid brutality but arrive off the back of a shambolic show against Treviso.George North is a known threat, as are Jonathan Davies and Aaron Shingler. However, Andrew Fenby on the other wing is a dangerous and undervalued striker and captain Rob McCusker and Ken Owens grow in stature when they are on the front foot. So in the fight for momentum it is the bankable talents of Ruan Pienaar, Paddy Jackson and a pummelling pack against the hustler Rhys Priestland and an array of forward-falling talents.If you are one fond of Lion watching, Tommy Bowe will line-up opposite North and Davies will bristle in the centre.Friday 10 May: Ulster v Scarlets. At Ravenhill, 7.45pm. Live on BBC NI/RTE/S4C For the first time in five years someone other than the Ospreys and Munster will lift the silverware. Which of these four will survive the semis?The June edition of Rugby World magazine includes interviews with Leinster and Ireland’s Cian Healy, Glasgow and Scotland’s Stuart Hogg, Leinster’s Isa Nacewa and Scarlets’ Liam Williams. Don’t forget to buy your copy! It’s on sale now, until 4 June. Leinster v GlasgowOn Saturday, Leinster will host Glasgow Warriors at the RDS – a place that, if they win, could host their remaining games as it would be the venue for the Amlin Challenge Cup final and perhaps the Pro12 final – as the leagues top try-scorers and second stingiest defence rush over from Scotland.There will be scant opportunity to catch breath in this semi with Lions Stuart Hogg and Sean Maitland zipping around in front of future team-mates Cian Healy, Sean O’Brien (if he passes a late fitness test), Jamie Heaslip, Jonny Sexton, Brian O’Driscoll and Rob Kearney.History boy: In ’08 Felipe Contepomi took Leinster to the titleThere will also be a heightened sense of importance to the semi-final, with Leinster head coach Joe Schmidt looking to finally win the Pro12 title with his side this season before moving on to take the Ireland job. Pro12 coach of the year Gregor Townsend and his squad of snappy rascals stand in the way.It is achingly beautiful patterns and plays against the all-action blitz of the Warriors. It will be quick and there will be a fine balance between balletic play and ugly slapping into hits. Much may come down to Sexton’s play against irregular stand-off Pete Horne.As well as this, Leinster have the knockout mentality and they have history behind them. Glasgow are the cheeky upstarts capable of sticking a wet finger in the Irish side’s ear.Saturday 11 May: Leinster v Glasgow Warriors, 7.45pm. Live on TG4 and BBC ALBA LONDON, ENGLAND – APRIL 06: Tommy Bowe of Ulster reacts during the Heineken Cup quarter final match between Saracens and Ulster at Twickenham Stadium on April 6, 2013 in London, England.

La iglesia abordó estos temas de manera sabia y comprometida en lo espiritual, en sus manifiestos y en acciones concretas”. Sobre la convención misma, Quito agregó: “a pesar de las dificultades me gustó que a pesar de las diferencias se realizó trabajo con respeto y tolerancia entre los diputados… eso es maravilloso”.El Rdo. Paul Colbert, de la diócesis de San Joaquín en California, consideró muy importante el énfasis de la CG en superar las barreras idiomáticas: “He notado que en la 77ª Convención General ha habido mayor disposición para la producción de material en dos idiomas… ha habido más inclusión institucional”.Colbert explica que tradicionalmente su diócesis fue más de los terratenientes que de los campesinos, pero en la actualidad más del 50% del valle de San Joaquín es latino. Colbert añade que “En la reconstitución de nuestra diócesis estamos reconociendo que el crecimiento de nuestra iglesia está en atender las necesidades de los que ya están entre nosotros (…) creo que parte de nuestra cultura a veces ignora las pequeñas cosas que pueden hacer a los demás sentirse incluidos”.Observando atentamente la 77ª Convención General, un nutrido grupo de jóvenes, la Nueva Generación de Latinos (NGL) analizó lo que significan las decisiones de la Convención para ellos y para el futuro de la iglesia. Adriana Bonilla, de 16 años de edad, presentó ante la convención un proyecto de resolución instando a la Iglesia Episcopal a establecer un programa que facilite a jóvenes latinos indocumentados la obtención de recursos para acceder a la educación superior.Los jóvenes recibieron con beneplácito la apertura cultural que notaron en la convención y destacaron con orgullo que aunque son perfectamente bilingües, aprecian que la iglesia reconozca y valore su herencia bicultural.Jason Sierra, integrante de la delegación de presencia juvenil en la Convención General consideró muy importante la posición adoptada respecto a la bendición de parejas del mismo sexo. Para Sierre, la Convención “respondió apropiadamente a una realidad social y humana que no se puede ignorar”.El Rdo. Leonel Blanco, de la diócesis de Okahoma, expresó reservas en cuanto al impacto de la decisión sobre bendición a parejas del mismo sexo; “Personalmente yo estoy en contra, creo que hemos dado un paso atrás. La prensa internacional ya habla de “aceptación de matrimonios” y de lo que realmente estábamos hablando era de una bendición. Se ha hecho un juego de palabras (…) creo que para la iglesia hispana va a ser un choque fuerte”.Para las delegaciones latinas otro tema crucial en la Convención fue la conversación sobre el Pacto Anglicano, y aunque no se adoptó debido a divergencias sobre su redacción, la opinión general entre el clero y laicos fue que la discusión misma y la identificación de los puntos de divergencia, es un paso fundamental para llegar a un acuerdo en el futuro.— César Cardoza es miembro del equipo del Servicio de Prensa Episcopal en la Convención General.

She can be reached via Environmental charity Hubbub has announced that the Community Fridge Network is to double in size by the end of 2020 with National Lottery funding.The charity aims to support the opening of 50 more sites over the next 22 months.  Founded by Hubbub in July 2017, the Community Fridge Network and fridges within the Network have been funded by backers including The National Lottery Community Fund, Sainsbury’s, The Rothschild Foundation, Bosch, North London Waste Authority, the Morrison’s Foundation, Samsung and the Climate Challenge Fund.The Community Fridge Network launched with the aim of reducing food waste in the UK, by providing a place for local residents and businesses to donate surplus food, which is available for anyone in the community to take.In addition, a survey of 21 Community Fridges showed that 50% were seeing people also sharing skills, with 45% stating that their Community Fridge is linked to cooking and growing workshops and 30% saying that people are sharing other household items.With the opening of the 50th Community Fridge, the Network is redistributing an average of 25 tonnes of food each month, the equivalent of approximately 50,000 meals.Trewin Restorick, Founder and CEO, Hubbub said:“We’re thrilled with how successful Community Fridges have been and the rapid growth of the Network. The Fridges not only save valuable food, they help bring people together and have become real community hubs. Some people had doubts at the outset as to whether the Community Fridge Network would work, but the Fridges have developed to be positive, social spaces that have proven the doubters wrong.”Also known as ‘Solidarity’ or ‘Honesty’ Fridges, Community Fridges have been introduced in Spain, Germany as well as the UK. Hubbub’s Community Fridge Network also provides free advice, resources and support to Community Fridge organisers around challenges such as legal requirements and food hygiene, as well as creating opportunities for communities to share experiences and learn from each other.

Authorities use arrests, expulsion to prevent information circulating

first_imgIn a statement two days later, the interior ministry claimed that no foreign journalist had ever been denied a visa and that Kristof was refused entry solely because he failed to adhere to visa application procedures.Reporters Without Borders also condemns the recent arrests of DPA photographer Mazen Mahdi and photographers working for the Associated Press and Agence France-Presse. Mahdi was held for two hours after being arrested during a demonstration in Saar in 28 December. He was previously detained briefly while covering demonstrations on 16 and 17 December.

One of the accusations against him is waiting until 17 December to post a photo taken on 15 December of an injured young demonstrator.Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate release of Muhafda and the withdrawal of all the charges against him. He is in charge of documentation at the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights and is the centre’s vice-president.“Muhafda is yet again paying for his commitment to the circulation of information about human rights violations in Bahrain,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The authorities must stop their repeated violations of freedom of information and allow news providers to operate freely.”At the time of his arrest, Muhafda was tweeting live from a demonstration in Manama to mark the anniversary of the deaths of two demonstrators killed during a 1994 uprising, He was accused of circulating false information on Twitter when he was brought before the prosecutor-general the next day.He was previously arrested on 2 November, while covering the use of violence to disperse a demonstration, and was released 12 days later.The information provided by Bahrain’s human rights activists is all the more important as the authorities limit visits by foreign journalists and often obstruct the reporting of those who are allowed in. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof reported that he was denied entry on arrival at Manama airport on 17 December because he was on a persona non grata list.

Crackdown on media continues

first_img Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists Help by sharing this information Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organisation Sri LankaAsia – Pacific News News The offices of the Lanka-e-News website were also surrounded by the police. The authorities today rescinded Swiss journalist Karin Wenger’s deportation order. Wenger, who covered the presidential election for Swiss public radio station DRS, had received a letter from the immigration department ordering her to leave the country by tomorrow. AFP quoted a government spokesman as saying the order was issued on the basis of “false information.”—————-29 January 2010 – President Rajapaksa urged to halt post-election crackdown on mediaTwo days after he was declared the winner of this week’s election, Reporters Without Borders appealed today to President Mahinda Rajapaksa to put a stop to arrests and intimidation of journalists working for privately-owned and foreign media.“This wave of post-election violence could cast a lasting stain on the start of President Rajapaksa’s second term and bodes ill for the political climate during the coming years,” said Reporters Without Borders, which highlighted an increase in election violence and censorship in countries such as Iran and Tunisia in its latest press freedom roundup.Reporters Without Borders also reminds the president of the statements in support of press freedom that he has made on many occasions, including a meeting with a Reporters Without Borders representative in October 2008.“It is quite normal for journalists and privately-owned media to side with a candidate before and during a democratic election but it is unacceptable for them to the victims of reprisals once the elections are over,” the press freedom organisation added.Police and unidentified groups have been targeting the media, especially media that supported the leading opposition candidate, Gen. Sarath Fonseka, every since the announcement of the result, which some opposition sectors including Fonseka are disputing. Sri Lanka’s five main journalists’ organisations have issued a joint statement condemning the “post-election media suppression.”The following serious press freedom violations have been reported:1. Police today arrested Chandana Sirimalwatta, the editor of Lanka, a newspaper that supports the JVP opposition party, after he responded to a summons for questioning about an article published on 26 January. The president’s brother, defence minister Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, threatened to burn the newspaper down a few days ago.2. Plain-clothes men using a car with the license plate 32/ 84 32 placed seals yesterday evening over the entrance to the office of the Lankaenews website. Men searched the office earlier in the day. The website itself has been rendered inaccessible for the past few days by the state telecommunications company Sri Lanka Telecom.3. In an interview for the Colombo-based Daily Mirror newspaper yesterday, Tamil government minister Douglas Devananda threatened the Jaffna-based newspaper Uthayan with unspecified reprisals.4. Reporter Karin Wenger of the Swiss public radio station DRS is facing possible deportation on 1 February following the withdrawal of her press accreditation. “I had a visa and accreditation that were valid for the election,” she told Reporters Without Borders. “I think this decision is linked to the questions I asked an official during a news conference after the results were announced.” A presidential adviser referred to her insultingly as a “white skin.”5. Ravi Abewikrama, a reporter with state radio broadcaster SLBC was attacked yesterday by one of the station’s officials for criticising the biased election coverage imposed by the head of the station.6. Soldiers took up position on 26 January around and inside the buildings that house two privately-owned TV stations, Sirasa and Swarnavahini, in Colombo.7. Soldiers roughed up photographers working for foreign news agencies when they tried to attend a news conference given by Gen. Fonseka yesterday. One was forced to delete the photos on his camera’s memory card. Soldiers also prevented journalists from working freely near a hotel being used by Fonseka the previous day.Reporters Without Borders finally also urges President Rajapaksa to assign more police officers to the search for political reporter and cartoonist Prageeth Eknaligoda, who has been missing since 24 January. His family has had no news of him since that date.

Required fields are marked *center_img Top of the News From Aug. 3 to Sept. 11, Pasadena City College presents a sampling of the varied and skillfull works of professor emeritus Norman Abbey. An opening reception will be held Aug. 21, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.Throughout the many stages of his art career, Abbey has explored a wide-range of mediums, including painting, graphic design, and photography. After earning his degree in Visual Arts from UCLA in 1958, Abbey taught in Germany and Paris before joining the faculty at PCC in 1962. He then established a successful graphic design/photography business that thrived for 40 years.As one peruses the works in the show, one witnesses the changing social perspectives of the United States throughout the decades. We see the optimistic 50s, the tumultuous 60s, the retro and whimsically playful 70s, and the 80s embrace of corporate dominance. Abbey’s astute explorations into experimental photographic processes contribute significantly to his encapsulation of the ethos of each era.Of particularly striking effect is his use of transparent photographic overlays in “Vietnam Tragedy, 1975” in which his techniques provide a perfect visual methaphor for the multiple and conflicting viewpoints during that era of soul-searching rebellion and unrest. Throughout Abbey’s body of work, his refined sense of design is evident in his effective use of pattern and texture in his artful compositions.In addition to his 1969 show at the Downy Museum of Art, Abbey received a Purchase Prize from the Long Beach Museum of Art as well as numerous regional awards throughout the years.
