The FTSE 250 oil and gas company Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW) has had a disastrous few months at the stock markets. Its woes started late last year, when it posted two successive disappointing updates. I was keenly awaiting the mid-January update to see if it would change the fortunes for the sagging share. No avail. Its share price fell by another 16% on the day of the latest update as Tullow reported even lower production of 86,700 barrels of oil per day (bopd) for 2019, compared to 87,000 bopd in December. However, I don’t think the latest update is all bad. Here’s why. 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…Financials aren’t all bad (or good) First, let’s consider the financials. These are neither just good or bad, but a mix of both. On the positive side, TLW’s financials are unchanged from both November and December, despite the latest production cuts. Further, it’s expected to remain profitable for the second year running, and its net debt is expected to go down to $2.8bn from $3.1bn last year. However, there are downsides too. November’s free cash flow expectations for 2019 might be unchanged at $350m, but they are still lower than the numbers seen in 2018. Revenue and earnings too, are expected to be slightly lower at $1.7bn and $0.7bn compared to the last year. Unchanged production expectations Two, its production expectations for 2020 remain unchanged at 70–80,000 bopd from the last two updates. Here too, however, it’s still lower than the levels seen in 2019. In this scenario, it’s tempting to consider the price impact of recent geopolitical tensions on oil companies. But I’d hold back. While events like these could increase oil prices, they can also lower demand. A deep demand impact is bad for oil producers, who can still lose despite any gains from higher oil prices. Besides this, short-term spikes in oil prices don’t always last. A few weeks ago, crude oil saw a spike in price as stress mounted between the US and Iran. Now, it’s dropping as the coronavirus outbreak is expected to impact human life and consequently the economy. I’d buy expectations of higher oil prices due to, say, a better economy in 2020 as compared to 2019. But so far there’s no proof of prices rising for that reason either. So, 2020 may well be muted for TLW, especially if there are cuts to its production estimates as we move further into the year. There’s of course the possibility that it could turn out to be a good year, as my colleague Rupert Hargreaves pointed out recently. This only goes to show that there are multiple elements to consider with regards to TLW, which include a high dividend yield. For that reason, it makes for a complex story. I’d wait for this one to simplify before deciding the next steps.

Peter Stephens | Sunday, 10th January, 2021 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Making a 200% return, or trebling an initial investment, from UK shares may seem very unlikely at first glance. After all, the FTSE 100 hasn’t yet recovered from the 2020 stock market crash to post new record highs.However, the past performance of the index shows that generating such returns may be far more realistic than many investors realise. Many UK stocks currently trade at low prices due to ongoing disruption caused by coronavirus. That means there may be opportunities to outperform past returns in the new bull market.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…The past performance of UK sharesThe track record of UK shares shows they’ve been a sound means of generating 200% returns. For example, the FTSE 100 has posted annualised total returns of around 9% since it was established in 1984. As such, an investment that grows at the same pace as the wider index could double within eight years. And even treble within a further four years. This means an investment made today that matches the stock market’s performance may be trading 200% higher within 12 years.Of course, there’s no guarantee the stock market will produce 9% annualised total returns in future. It’s experienced periods of huge disappointment that have caused its price level to halve in a matter of months. However, the key takeaway is that high single-digit returns are available from equity markets over the long term.An investor who buys and holds a diverse portfolio of UK shares for the long run could benefit from compounding, and may be able to treble their initial investment.Buying opportunities from across the FTSE 100While a diverse portfolio of UK shares could deliver high returns, it’s possible to outperform the FTSE 100 over the long run. Doing so would reduce the amount of time it takes for an investment to treble in value. And that may lead to a larger nest egg providing greater financial freedom in future.At the present time, many UK stocks trade on valuations that appear to underestimate their potential to deliver improving financial performances in the coming years. Certainly, their short-term operating conditions are tough in many cases. Industries such as retail, banking and a number of others are suffering from a weak UK economic outlook for the first part of 2021.However, history suggests that UK shares with solid financial positions operating in such sectors can survive the short run challenges they face to benefit from improving outlooks in the coming years. They may be able to deliver rising profitability that has a positive impact on investor sentiment, as well as their share prices.Buying them when they trade at low prices may provide scope for higher capital returns. And that increases an investor’s potential to treble their initial investment as the current bull market continues.

The proposed changes, which were requested by the Synod in 2015, remove the current definition of marriage in the first clause of the canon and adds a new “conscience clause” to prevent clergy opposed to the move from being forced to conduct same-sex weddings against their will.The current Canon, C31, begins by defining marriage by stating: “The Doctrine of this Church is that Marriage is a physical, spiritual and mystical union of one man and one woman created by their mutual consent of heart, mind and will thereto, and is a holy and lifelong estate instituted of God.”The proposed amendment to Canon C31 would replace that wording with a new clause which says: “In the light of the fact that there are differing understandings of the nature of marriage in this Church, no cleric of this Church shall be obliged to conduct any marriage against their conscience. . .”The Synod is being asked to give the proposed amendment a first reading – this requires a simple majority in each house of Synod. If approved, it would return to the Synod next year for a second reading. This would require a two-thirds majority in each house. In between first and second reading, diocesan synods have the opportunity to make their views known on the proposals.A counter-motion from the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney reaffirming the traditional doctrine of marriage will be put to the Synod; but only if it declines to give the proposed changes to the canon a first reading.The Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney had proposed a motion saying that“In the light of the recent Anglican Primates meeting we, the General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church, wish to:a) Support the Primates’ reaffirmation of the traditional doctrine of the church in upholding marriage as between a man and a woman in faithful, lifelong union. b) And commit to making no decisions that could put the SEC’s relationship with the Anglican Communion at risk.”The Standing Committee has agreed to put the first part of the motion to the Synod; but has rejected part B. “That is partly because the wording of the motion is too vague and ambiguous to be legally competent to put to the Synod,” Secretary General John F. Stuart said in a note to Synod members.“The motion seeks to commit the Synod to taking no action that would put the Scottish Episcopal Church’s relationship with the Anglican Communion at risk. However, at the time of making a decision to take any action, General Synod would not necessarily be in a position to know whether any such prospective action would put the SEC’s relationship with the Anglican Communion at risk.“Nor is the meaning of ‘at risk’ clear. Also, short of the usual canonical process, one General Synod cannot bind a future General Synod as to how it should or should not act. In practice, it is for each Synod to decide for itself what decisions it wishes to make, in the light of whatever information is available to it at the time,” he said.Discussion on the issue will begin on the afternoon of Thursday, June 9, when Synod members will debate a report on the Primates’ Gathering and Meeting that took place in Canterbury Cathedral, England, in January and the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-16) meeting in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka, Zambia, in April. After this, the Bishop of Glasgow & Galloway, the Rt. Rev. Gregor Duncan, acting convener of the provincial Faith and Order Board, will present a report detailing the proposed changes and explaining the process to be following by the Synod the following day.During this session, the bishop will also “outline further recommendations . . . of how best the unity of the Church can be maintained in the event of the Synod deciding to alter Canon 31,” Duncan said; and he will also “outline work being done by the College of Bishops on ‘surrounding’ issues which need to be addressed in advance of any second reading of the Canon in 2017.”On the morning of Friday, June 10, the Synod will debate the first reading of the proposed changes. If the Synod gives the proposals a first reading, the shortened motion from the Aberdeen and Orkney diocese will not be debated.

La Paz, BoliviaPublished in pagina12.com.ar on Nov. 19 following the Nov. 8 inauguration of the Movement toward Socialism (MAS) president Luis Arce and vice president and the Nov. 9 return to Bolivia of former President Evo Morales. Translation by John Catalinotto.Little by little the daily conversations stop reviewing the months spent under the coup regime and start discussing what happens next. The country is calm, no soldiers remain in the streets, daily life has resumed in La Paz overlooked by the snowy peaks of the Illimani — a word meaning resplendent in the Aymara language – and the cable car that crosses the city reaches El Alto, from where the roads of the altiplano open out.Following the inauguration and Evo Morales return, street life returns to normal in La Paz – or does it?News still arrives about those who led the de facto [coup] government. Javier Issa, who led the Ministry of Interior, has joined the flight from the country of Arturo Murillo and Fernando López, ex-ministers of Government and Defense. According to the national director of Interpol, Issa flew on Nov. 9 from Bolivia to Miami.New information has also appeared about the central actors who carried out the November 2019 coup: the National Police. Carlos Romero, a [MAS] government minister at the time of the overthrow, who was later arrested and imprisoned, declared that he had a list of “the police chiefs who organized and led the police mutiny,” particularly in the city of Cochabamba, one of the critical centers during the days of the siege.According to Romero, 92 weapons disappeared in the Cochabamba riot, which, according to “hypotheses from police circles,” ended up in the hands of snipers who used them to open fire in the town of Sacaba on Nov. 15, the day of the massacre there. The former minister also emphasized that the police “were never friendly to the MAS,” because the MAS had taken away businesses worth millions, and “the police hierarchy” was waiting for “any political condition in which the MAS would stop having this leading role so they could conspire, and the political opportunity arose on Oct. 20 of last year.”Romero also referred to 300 people, including businessmen and private individuals, who contributed money to the coup, some up to $200,000 each, reaching a sum of “several million dollars.” This last statement was denied by [fascist leader] Luis Fernando Camacho, who claimed to have fully financed the actions himself, in a statement with which he aimed to remain the main leader of the 2019 coup events. He did this as disputes within the rightwing are taking place in the city of Santa Cruz in the East, Camacho’s base.Reorganization of the rightwingThe Santa Cruz divisions occur within the lodges [secret societies of the wealthy], and in their political organizations, such as the Civic Committee and the Santa Cruz Youth Union. These divisions are part of a process of right-wing reorganization, to determine which sector will take the lead and what strategy will be developed for this new phase.This reorganization of the right wing indicates something clear: With the defeat of the coup, one stage has ended. One of the questions still unanswered is how to redirect the whole country to the arena of dialogue, coexistence and democracy. This is a complex question at each level − in the police and the armed forces, as well as among the political actors of the right; in business circles, as well as in society; between regions and within the cities.The coup, as well as the months of de facto government, escalated and exposed the depths of the historical divisions in Bolivia. During that time there was aggression against women in pollera skirts (that is, for being Aymaras, Quechuas [Indigenous nations]) and against people for being or appearing to be with the MAS. These were expressions of colonial contempt. You saw also the phantoms of the middle and upper classes of La Paz, armed inside barricades, expressing their fears of a possible uprising in El Alto [a mostly Indigenous city up the mountain from La Paz] and its descent into the center of the city.The coup opened up the hatred like a can of worms; it showed that something that seemed largely past had only been contained. How can the abyss be reduced? Is there an irremediably irreconcilable dimension? The process of change, the proposal of a plurinational state, had made progress, but the coup called this progress into question.On the other hand, in El Alto, for example, the youngest people, who had not experienced coup or right-wing governments before, went through a strong political development. They demanded justice for the massacres that had taken place, like that in the towns of Sacaba and Senkata. This turned into a massive uprising following the whipala banner of the Indigenous, with a renewed sense of political power which, in part, explains the 55.1 percent landslide that handed the MAS the Oct. 18 elections.Movement for change strengthenedThe process of change has come out of the coup period strengthened. The offense against the whipala by the police and the de facto government, the persecutions, the militarization of public space, the televised threats and humiliations resulted in reaffirming identities, political views, and leadership roles among the oppressed. Now a stage of internal reorganization begins among the different elements that make up the process, taking up the role of leadership in each movement and organization, of the political instrument − including the parliamentary representation, the executive − that can lead to a correction of errors.After a year that left a deep mark on the lives of millions of people, the political balance has been reset to that of a year earlier. But what do the majority expect, in particular those who voted for MAS? Economic and political stabilization, deepening of the transformations. The first thing they expect is that the government of the [new President] Luis Arce will impose a permanent tax on large fortunes.The new stage in Bolivia represents an opportunity for the process of change, which managed to return to political power in a scenario where shots were being fired. For the moment, the country can breathe again. La Paz is that city carved between mountains and summits, at the foot of El Alto with its markets, stores, networks of organizations and Aymara knowledge, amid the immensity of the Andes mountains.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
