The Glencore share price is up 51% since the market crash. I think it’s a bargain buy.

The 2020 stock market crash presented an ideal buying opportunity for investors looking to pick up a bargain or two. In the depths of the sell-off, the FTSE 100 index lost 32% of its value. On top of this, many quality UK shares were trading far below average historic valuations. That still remains the case for numerous companies listed in the index today and one that I think may have been largely overlooked is Glencore (LSE: GLEN).The Glencore share priceThe commodity trading and mining company saw its share price tumble by 52% in the depths of the market crash. Since then though, the shares have recovered much of their value. That said, it’s worth noting that the company’s valuation is still down by around 26%. Right off the bat, the shares appear to offer a wide safety margin. What’s more, they don’t appear overvalued relative to other miners in the index, with a forward P/E of 13.5.5G 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…Since flotation on the London Stock Exchange in May 2011, the Glencore share price has had a bumpy ride. To illustrate, those who bought shares on day one would have lost 85% of their initial investment when the company’s valuation hit rock bottom on 15 January 2016. However, if you’d invested around that time, you’d currently be sitting on approximately 130% gains.Stable positionIn late April, Glencore released its first-quarter 2020 production update. The company reassuringly announced that most of its operations had not seen any material impact from the pandemic. However, government restrictions in Canada, South Africa, Colombia and Peru have caused some disruption.In the report, Glencore also highlighted the opportunities that have arisen for its marketing business as a result of the volatile and complex commodity trading environment. Success here has enabled the company to generate annualised earnings in line with its long-term guidance range.Positive future outlookThings look good moving forward too. At the beginning of the week, news surfaced of a deal struck between Tesla and Glencore for batteries. The agreement stipulates that the electric car manufacturing company will buy cobalt from the FTSE 100 miner for use in its new car plants. With Glencore being the largest industrial supplier of cobalt in the world, I think the long-term partnership could prove a catalyst for further growth in the company.Moreover, as the global economy recovers, I expect activity in the resources sector to swiftly return to pre-pandemic levels. If so, investor sentiment towards mining stocks is likely to improve, causing share prices to rise. In fact, analysts at Deutsche Bank have already hiked their price targets for numerous miners on the back of strong demand in China.Overall, given the company’s strong liquidity position and resilient business model, I think Glencore is more than capable of navigating the current challenges facing the sector. As such, now could be an ideal time to buy the shares at a reduced valuation and hold them for the long term.

The TUI (LSE:TUI) share price has had a terrible 2020. I feel it could be in more trouble in 2021 on the back of the government announcement regarding British residents arriving in the UK being asked to quarantine hotels.TUI share price and 2020 woesAs I write this, the TUI share price sits close to 341p per share. This is nearly 65% lower than January 2020 levels.  The Covid-19 vaccine breakthrough provided the whole of the market a shot in the arm. It caused the TUI share price to shoot up to 546p per share. The FTSE as a whole did not react as well as the price rise TUI experienced.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…Since that high, however, TUI has fallen nearly 40% once more to current levels. Several things bother me when it comes to the TUI share price and investment viability, however.Firstly, pent-up demand when business resumes could cause a huge hike in share price, which I believe could overvalue TUI. Secondly, it has taken on further debt to keep the lights on, which does not bode well. Finally, it is raising capital by placing new shares worth approximately €545m. Although I prefer this approach over new debt, any new share issue dilutes existing shareholders which never sits well with me in a company in the position of TUI.That said, there is recovery potential in 2021 and beyond for TUI. Alongside its airline, it offers package holidays and is still the largest travel and tourism firm in the world. I believe it will survive the pandemic and return to normal at some point due its diversified offering and reach.FTSE AIM opportunity for 2021FTSE AIM incumbent Fevertree (LSE:FEVR) had an excellent 2020. I believe it could continue this momentum in 2021 and beyond, making it an enticing prospect for my portfolio. Unlike the TUI share price, the FEVR share price is currently trading nearly 70% higher than pre-crash levels. At the beginning of 2020, shares were trading for 1391p per share whereas right now I can pick up shares for 2,320p.Fevertree has strong liquidity and very low debt, which has seen it through the pandemic. I believe this will also stand it in good stead for 2021 and beyond. In the US and Europe levels increased by nearly 40% as reported in a trading update in the summer. My confidence towards Fevertree is linked to its ambitious expansion plans in the US and beyond which are already well underway, based on sales levels reported last year. The pandemic has slowed progress somewhat but I still believe Fevertree could have another good year in 2021, which makes it a tempting option.Despite my optimism, there are still risks involved. Its share price is at its highest level in over two years. There is a chance it may not rise too much further, or reach that previous high. In addition to this, overseas expansion is easier said than done. The pandemic has slowed and could even hinder progress longer term.FEVR over TUIThe TUI share price and its ongoing issues closely linked to the pandemic are why I will keep an eye on developments but not buy shares just now.As for Fevertree, it’s a business which is cash rich, has low debt, increased its dividend in September and is growing despite an economic downturn. Here is another option in the same sector that could make me a passive income too. See all posts by Jabran Khanlast_img read more

Episcopalians, world religious leaders confront climate disruption

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC By Margaret Bullitt-JonasPosted Jun 20, 2018 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, head of the Orthodox Church, releases a rehabilitated kestrel during an international symposium on the climate crisis. Photo: Robert A. Jonas[Episcopal News Service] Earlier this month, leaders of the Eastern church and the Western church, representing billions of people worldwide, spoke with one voice about the moral urgency of confronting the climate crisis.“A civilization is defined and judged by our respect for the dignity of humanity and the integrity of nature,” declared the head of the Orthodox Church, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, in his keynote address for an international symposium held June 5-8 in Greece. “Toward a Green Attica: Preserving the Planet and Protecting Its People” was the ninth international interdisciplinary and interreligious symposium that the patriarch has convened since 1991 to highlight the spiritual basis of ecological care and to strengthen collaboration across disciplines in the quest to build a just and habitable world.Two hundred leaders in a variety of fields – science, economics, theology, public policy, journalism, business, human rights and social justice activism – attended the symposium, which gathered initially in Athens and then moved to the islands of Spetses and Hydra. Participants studied the latest findings of climate science, explored strategic actions toward sustainability and resilience, and renewed their commitment to push for the economic and societal changes that must take place if we are to avert social and ecological chaos and widespread suffering. (For the program and a list of participants, visit here.)The Rt. Rev. Nicholas Holtam, bishop of Salisbury, represented the archbishop of Canterbury and affirmed the commitment of the Anglican Consultative Council to address the climate crisis (e.g., Resolution 16.08: Response to Global Climate Change). As the Church of England states on its website, “We believe that responding to climate change is an essential part of our responsibility to safeguard God’s creation.” From Sept. 1 to Oct. 4, Anglicans will unite with Christians around the world to care for God’s creation in during the annual “Season of Creation.” (Materials for participating in the “Season of Creation” through worship, study and prayer are available from the Anglican Communion Environmental Network and other sources here; a guide to celebrating the 2018 “Season of Creation” is available here.)Cardinal Peter Turkson, a Ghanaian cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church who worked closely with Pope Francis in developing the papal encyclical “Laudato Si’,” represented the pope at the symposium. Turkson read a statement from Pope Francis that included these lines: “It is not just the homes of vulnerable people around the world that are crumbling, as can be seen in the world’s growing exodus of climate migrants and environmental refugees. As I sought to point out in my Encyclical ‘Laudato Si’,’ we may well be condemning future generations to a common home left in ruins. Today we must honestly ask ourselves a basic question: ‘What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?’” (The entire statement can be found here.)One of the most powerful, disturbing and illuminating lectures was given by Jeffrey Sachs, a world-renowned professor of economics and director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. Sachs gave a one-hour overview of the history of economics that included a blistering critique of corporate capitalism and its veneration of greed, by which “nature is utterly sacrificed for profit,” he said. (A professional videographer recorded the speech, but until that video becomes available, you can watch a recording here.)Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, director of Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, gave a hair-raising presentation on the precarious health of “the vital organs of the planet,” such as the Gulf Stream, coral reefs, alpine glaciers, the Amazon rainforest and the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (a recent study shows that Antarctica’s ice loss has tripled in a decade; if that continues, we are in serious trouble). Citing “A roadmap for rapid decarbonization,” a 2017 article from the journal “Science,” Schellnhuber contended that we could halve carbon emissions every decade – “but we have to want to do it.”Other speakers likewise underscored the urgent need to galvanize our vision, will, and moral courage as we confront the climate crisis, which poses an existential threat to civilization.Both Turkson and Sachs left the symposium early to make a trip to Rome. Pope Francis had taken the unprecedented step of inviting the world’s top fossil fuel executives – including the chairman of Exxon Mobil, the chief executive of the Italian energy giant Eni, and the chief executive of BP – along with money managers of major financial institutions, to meet with him in a two-day closed-door conference at the Vatican. Turkson and Sachs joined the meeting to add their perspectives.“There is no time to lose,” the pope told the participants. He appealed to them “to be the core of a group of leaders who envision the global energy transition in a way that will take into account all the peoples of the earth, as well as future generations and all species and ecosystems.”Thus, in one extraordinary week, Christian churches, both East and West, called for robust action to address climate disruption.The Rt. Rev. Marc Andrus, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of California and leader of the presiding bishop’s delegation to U.N. Climate Summits, commented, “The moment is dire, and also is (humanity’s) moment of greatest possibility. St. Irenaeus called a human fully alive the glory of God. Now, 1,300 years later, we may understand that for humanity to act as one for the good of the Earth is yet a greater expression of God’s glory.”Looking back on the symposium, Andrus was thankful for its “great spirit of respect and mutuality. Rather than lobbying to enlist people to each cause, there was a celebration of what each person is doing to heal the Earth, and a seeking to support each person on their path, to make connections. A good example of this to me was the tremendous joy we all felt as the ecumenical patriarch released two kestrels that had been nursed back to health by an Athenian woman whose ministry is protecting and healing endangered birds.”Another Episcopal participant, Sheila Moore Andrus, a biologist and an active climate champion from the Diocese of California, expressed appreciation for the opportunity to meet new climate activists and connect with individuals she has long respected – including the Rev. Fletcher Harper, who, she said, “is currently working on a project similar to one I am working on for the Diocese of California: a web-based tool that can help people decrease their carbon footprint and aggregate those choices by church and diocesan community. The conference gave Fletcher, Marc and me a chance to explore ways to promote such a tool among interfaith groups, and all this in settings filled with inspiring talks and sacred indoor/outdoor spaces.”Harper, executive director of GreenFaith, concluded: “The fact that it was searingly hot during the symposium made the point about the need for action as powerfully as any of the speakers. This September, the multifaith service at Grace Cathedral (in San Francisco) at the start of the Global Climate Action Summit gives everyone a chance – whether in person or on the livestream – to commit to living the change in our own diet, transportation and home energy use that’s needed for a non-scorched, sustainable future.”— The Rev.
