This FTSE 100 share is up 64% in 1 year. I like this ‘secret’ stock!

Posted On Jul 5 2021 by

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Hedge funds are collective investment funds aimed at institutions and wealthy individuals. Many use complex trading algorithms to generate extra gains. Others use financial derivatives and leverage (borrowed money) to boost returns. Some use short-selling (betting on falling share prices) to make money. To buy in to a typical  edge fund would require a minimum investment of between £500k and £1m. But I can buy in to a leading US hedge fund for under £27 by buying one particular FTSE 100 share.This FTSE 100 firm is a hedge fundThe FTSE 100 share is Pershing Square Holdings (LSE: PSH). PSH is an investment trust — a fund that sells its shares, just as other listed companies do. There are 300+ trusts listed in London, but PSH interests me most. This Guernsey-registered investment trust tracks the Pershing Square Capital Management hedge fund. This is run by US billionaire Bill Ackman. In the secretive world of hedge funds, Ackman is renowned for making big, bold bets. Occasionally, they come unstuck, but some of ‘Wild’ Bill’s conviction trades pay out big-time. Last year, he turned $27m into $2.6bn by buying credit-protection derivatives weeks before ‘Meltdown’ March 2020. That generated a near-100-fold return (+9,530%) in one month!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…PSH crashed in 2020Bill Ackman founded his hedge fund in 2003, but PSH didn’t list in London until May 2017. The real drama for shareholders came in 2020, when Covid-19 rocked the world. As with almost all UK shares, PSH had a volatile 2020. The shares closed at 1,454p on 31 December 2019, but then endured a rough ride as Covid-19 swept the globe. On 19 March 2020, they hit a 2020 closing low of 1,134p. Their 2020 intra-day low of 1,122p followed days later, on 23 March. Since then, this FTSE 100 stock has skyrocketed, more than doubling in under 14 months.This hedge fund has thrashed the FTSE 100On Friday, PSH shares closed at 2,670p, more than £15 higher than their March 2020 lows. Indeed, they have gained more than 135% since their 2020 closing low. Over a similar period, the FTSE 100 itself has climbed by less than 38%. Thus, PSH has absolutely thrashed the Footsie since the market bottomed out.

As you can see, PSH shares have gained in value over all five periods, ranging from three months to three years. However, this stock didn’t really catch my eye until it entered the FTSE 100 index in December 2020. Since then, it’s been on my buy list.Will I still buy PSH?Recently, I decided to buy PSH shares inside my personal pension. Unfortunately, I’m still waiting for the pension-transfer admin to be done. Will I still buy this FTSE 100 share when the paperwork eventually goes through? I’m confident that I will, because I see Bill Ackman as one of the best fundamental value investors around. After all, he’s not worth upwards of $3bn for nothing. And I’ve never invested in a hedge fund before, so this will be a first for me. It will also help me to diversify and expand my portfolio, thus reducing my overall risk.Investing in a listed hedge fund is highly risky, so it’s not for widows and orphans (or any risk-averse investors). Also, I’m expecting PSH stock to be more volatile than the wider FTSE 100 index. But I’m willing to ride this roller-coaster with Wild Bill Ackman at the helm!

Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR While I am sensitive to this issue, the arrest report states he is from Apopka. The SCSO news release calls him an Apopka man, and his address says Apopka. Inside the article, his residence is described as unincorporated Apopka… so that is the most accurate the report can be. Every arrest article that is written in The Apopka Voice gives the city where the suspect is from if it is available.

‘Every issue is a woman’s issue’

Posted On Jun 15 2021 by

first_imgNew York City, March 9.WW photo: Brenda Ryan“The women united will never be defeated!” and “¡Sí, se puede!” were two of the popular chants during a spirited two-hour speakout at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Memorial in Manhattan on March 9. The rally was organized by the International Working Women’s Day Coalition, comprised of women activists of all ages, nationalities and gender expressions from community and political organizations, unions and schools, united around the theme that “every issue is a woman’s issue.”The speakout began and ended with Lallan Schoenstein, a retired staff member of a garment worker union, and Sue Harris from People’s Video Network, reading dozens of names of the 146 workers — mainly young, Jewish and Italian immigrant women — who tragically lost their lives in a March 25, 1911, fire in a garment factory when the bosses purposely locked the emergency exits. Some of the workers jumped to their deaths in an attempt to escape the flames. This massacre and the protests in response to it led to a surge in union organizing for better working conditions and pay.Leaving the speakout and taking to the streets.WW photo: Brenda RyanThe fire came just a year after the 1910 women’s socialist conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, which declared March 8 as International Women’s Day, to be commemorated worldwide. Activists likened the 1911 tragedy to the one that took place in a factory in Bangladesh last November, when a fire claimed the lives of more than 100 mainly women garment workers, superexploited by Walmart and other clothing conglomerates.Many carried signs saying “I am Harriet Tubman, a freedom fighter” in recognition of the March 10 centennial of Tubman’s death. Special programs on this anti-slavery fighter are scheduled for a high school in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant community on March 16 and the Bronx on March 24. Sharon Eolis, a Solidarity Center organizer and retired nurse, spoke on “General” Tubman’s contribution as a nurse during the Civil War.Nieves Ayress, a longtime Chilean revolutionary and community organizer with La Peña del Bronx, paid special tribute to the late President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela, a proponent of women’s rights.Carmen Valencia spoke from the Vieques Women’s Alliance.Youth speakers included Workers World Party activist Dinae Anderson; Thea Connolly and Desire DeLoach from the Red Youth collective; and Fernanda Pardo from the Revolutionary Student Coordinating Committee.Broad array of strugglesDolores Cox, an International Action Center organizer, read a message of solidarity from political prisoner and people’s lawyer, Lynne Stewart, who is suffering from cancer. A national petition is demanding a compassionate release for her from prison. Other women political prisoners mentioned during the speakout were Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, CeCe McDonald and members of the MOVE 9.Women activists spoke on the role of unions; affordable housing; safe school bus transportation; the struggle for no cuts in postal service; the rights of lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people; immigrants and domestic workers; and an end to sexual violence. They were Bertha Aiken, Coalition to Save Harlem; Sara Catalinotto, Parents to Improve School Transportation; Rosa María de la Torre, Community Labor United for Postal Jobs and Services; ­Marina Díaz, May 1 Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights; Zoila Ramírez, Women Workers For Peace; Egyptt, TransJustice co-coordinator; Lorena Sánchez, Philippine Forum’s Kabalikat; Stephanie Adohi, a longtime trade unionist of Indigenous descent; Jennine Ventura from Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment (FiRE) and Gabriela-USA; and Karina García from Women Organized to Resist and Defend.Christine Hilo from Gabriela-USA and Monica Moorehead from the Women’s Fightback Network co-chaired the speakout. Gabriela and WFN are member organizations of the International Women’s Alliance, a global formation that calls for the liberation of women from all forms of social injustice — like racism and attacks on reproductive rights rooted in capitalist oppression — and an end to the imperialist occupations of Haiti, Palestine, Puerto Rico, Africa and elsewhere.Following the speakout, rally participants marched to the WORD rally on violence against women in Washington Square Park. There, Brenda Stokely, a Million Worker March Movement leader and IWWD Coalition representative, spoke on the upcoming March 16 tribute to Harriet Tubman event in Brooklyn, where students are scheduled to perform a skit depicting Tubman and Civil Rights hero Rosa Parks meeting for the first time.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
