There’s something to be said for Lloyds Bank (LSE: LLOY). It remains among the most popular FTSE 100 stocks, going by its trading volumes, despite recent developments. LLOY showed a sharp drop in profits in its latest financial update. It also suspended dividends as the Covid-19 crisis and the stock market crash ensued. The Lloyds Bank share price has fallen sharply in this stock market crash.Lloyds Bank share price works in its favourWith this as the background, I imagine that speculative trading is one of the reasons for its continued popularity. But it’s not hard to see LLOY’s attractiveness for individual long-term investor either. It’s an inexpensive stock, and I don’t mean just in absolute terms. It’s price has hovered around a low 30p for much of the last month and its price-to-earnings ratio (P/E), a measure of how expensive it is compared to other stocks, is 13.3 times at the time of writing.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…Compare this to another FTSE 100 stock, the pharmaceuticals biggie AstraZeneca. At its last close, AstraZeneca’s share price was at £85.60 and its P/E at 74 times. You might argue that this isn’t an entirely like-to-like comparison. After all, AZN is a defensive stock that’s doing well in uncertain economic conditions. Moreover, the company’s also working on a Covid-19 vaccine. Clearly, it has more going for it than LLOY, which unfortunately has come under the wheels of circumstances outside of its control. But let me give you the example of another FTSE 100 banking stock, HSBC. It has a higher price of 412p (at the last close) and also a far higher P/E of 23 times. Clearly, when it comes to the share price, LLOY looks cheaper than HSBC as well.More to consider than the Lloyds Bank share priceBut I reckon that it’s the combination of price and optimism about its future that drives investors to buy it. For a long-term investor, who expects economic conditions and the performance of the banking sector to improve over time, LLOY with its long legacy may well seem like a good buy. However, I’m not so sure. In fact, I’ve long been wary of the stock. Alternative FTSE 100 investmentInstead, I’d propose considering investing in another FTSE 100 stock with similar features to LLOY, but in a different sector. I’m talking about the housebuilding giant Barratt Developments. It had a price of 531p at the last close, having dropped sharply in the stock market crash. This is much higher than the Lloyds Bank share price, but as far as FTSE 100 share prices go, it’s in the lower price range. Further, its P/E at 7.1 times is far lower than that of LLOY. That’s not all. Like Lloyds Bank, BDEV is also part of a cyclical industry. Property has been hard hit by economic slowdowns. The housebuilder’s construction activity has been doubly hit by the lockdown. But if its performance since the 2008 crisis is anything to go by, I’d put some faith (and more research) into it. It looks like a potentially good buy to me. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Jay Yao has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Diageo and Prudential. 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. Why I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks after their big events Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. See all posts by Jay Yao Meaningful events happen to FTSE 100 stocks all the time in the stock market. Sometimes the events send stock higher. Sometimes they send the stock lower.Recently, such events occurred to Diageo (LSE: DGE) and Prudential (LSE: PRU). Although the stocks went in different directions shortly after, I’d still buy both. 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…A leading insurerFTSE 100 stock Prudential is a leading British insurance company. The company offers life and health insurance as well as other financial products.Prudential’s big event, which caused shares to fall almost 8% on 28 January, centred on a company disclosure that management plans to separate the US business Jackson National from the company in a demerger in Q2 2021. Management is planning the demerger in order to focus more on Asia and Africa.Initially the company plans to retain a 19.9% stake in Jackson National before selling it over time to support the Asia pivot. Management is also considering a $2.5bn–$3bn equity raise to take advantage of various Asian growth opportunities and increase financial flexibility. Prudential also added that it expects its operating performance for 2020 to be “in line” with market expectations.Given the stock decline, it seems some in the market may have thought Prudential was better the way it was rather than as two separate companies. Many probably didn’t like the idea of the possible equity raise. I like that management wants to grow more in Asia and Africa. I reckon that’s where a lot of the new growth will be in the future, and I think there’s potential for PRU to get a higher valuation in the long term if management succeeds with their growth plans.However, Prudential isn’t without risk. If management doesn’t execute well (run the company like the market expects in terms of generating earnings, growth, etc.), the pandemic lasts longer than expected, or if the company has poor underwriting policies, the share price might decline.FTSE 100 stock DiageoDiageo is a leading maker of spirits with a portfolio of well known brands including Smirnoff. Shares rallied 3% on 28 January after the spirit maker announced its 2021 interim results. For Diageo, that’s the half-year ended 31 December 2020.For the interim period, Diageo’s net sales fell 4.5% year-over-year to £6.9bn. Operating profit fell 8.3% year-over-year to £2.2bn, according to official accounting measures. While those official numbers weren’t great due to unfavourable exchange rates, Diageo’s organic results were better. (Organic results are adjusted to exclude results of recently sold or acquired businesses. Many consider them a better indication of how the company is doing). Organic net sales actually rose 1% and organic operating profit only really fell 3.4% as North America showed some unexpected resiliency.For the period, Diageo also reported adjusted earnings per share of 69.9 pence, down 12.8% year over year but better than the analyst estimate of 67.8 pence. Additionally, the company continued to show why it’s considered a ‘dividend favourite’ by many by increasing the interim dividend per share by 2% to 27.96 pence.While I’d buy Diageo because I think it has a lot of growth left in emerging markets, the company also has risk. Poor execution or a bad acquisition decision by management would likely have a negative effect on the share price. Also, if economic conditions worsen, consumers may not spend as much on Diageo’s products. That could hurt performance and the share price.

Photo/Robin Denney[Episcopal News Service] Yida, the largest refugee camp in South Sudan, stretches for miles. It is home to more than 64,000 of the 206,000 refugees from the Republic of Sudan who have fled the bombing and violent attacks against civilians by the Khartoum government since June 2011. Yida camp itself was bombed Nov. 10, 2011, killing 12 refugees.Only 20 kilometers from the volatile border between Sudan and South Sudan, Yida camp sees a constant stream of nearly 200 new refugees a day, coming from the Nuba Mountains region (South Kordofan State) in Sudan. Rebel groups in Darfur, South Kordofan, and Blue Nile states have united against the Khartoum government’s army, Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF), which indiscriminately attacks rebels and civilians in those areas.“They kill everybody, Christians and Muslims. They burn houses, churches, and schools. They kill people. They drop bombs. Just two days ago soldiers came to my area [in the Nuba Mountains] and killed one person and burned houses,” said the Rev. Ameka Yousif, a pastor who has lived in Yida camp since February. “[In the Nuba Mountains] when people see the planes, they run and hide. Bombing is happening almost every day.”Children gather at an Episcopal Church of Sudan church in Yida Refugee Camp. Photo/Robin DenneyYida camp continues to grow, as attacks on the Nuba Mountains by the SAF have increased in intensity during the past month. The U.N. expects as many as 90,000 people to occupy the camp by the end of the year.In January 2011, a referendum was held in which citizens of what was then southern Sudan decided overwhelmingly to secede from the north and become an independent nation. Six months later on July 9, 2011, the Republic of South Sudan was born. The referendum was specified in a Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) — signed in 2005 between the north’s Khartoum-based Government of Sudan and the south’s Sudan People’s Liberation Movement — that ended a decades-long civil war that killed more than 2 million people and displaced an estimated 7 million more.Although conditions on the ground have improved in much of South Sudan since the referendum, fighting along the border, especially in disputed areas, has intensified.From some villages in the Nuba Mountains, entire communities have moved to Yida, Yousif explained. “But some people refuse to leave, they say ‘this is my place, I will die here.’”Four thousand members of the Episcopal Church of the Sudan’s Diocese of Kadugli now reside in Yida camp. They have four churches organized in different parts of the camp, and seven priests. The ECS churches are made up of many tribes worshiping together. They support one another in prayer, and help the most vulnerable among them, especially the widows and orphans.“The church is growing, I baptized 40 new believers last month,” said the Rev. Ali Haroun, head pastor for ECS in Yida. When asked why people were flocking to the church in this desperate place, Haroun said, “They see how we care for one another.”Conditions in the camp are desperate. In July, the daily mortality rate was three deaths per 10,000 children under five, and one death per 10,000 adults. In August, the rate reduced to one death per 10,000 children per day, still at the emergency threshold, according to U.N. data.“The food ration, four tins of sorghum per person per month, it is not enough,” said Yousif. “People trade some of their sorghum for salt and soap, and then their ration finishes before the month. Grinding is also expensive, so many people are just chewing the grains.”There are several medical stations in Yida where people can receive care, but the lines are long.“Sometimes people can stand all day and be told to come back the next day. The next day can be too late for them,” said Kukuri Mathias, a nurse and ECS member.The free health clinic run by the Episcopal Church of the Sudan at the Yida Refugee Camp. Photo/Robin DenneyThere are seven certified nurses and six nurse assistants who are ECS members in Yida. In response to the desperate need for medical care, they run a free clinic. They set up a simple grass structure with two beds where they can admit people. With donations from the refugees, they sent someone traveling for three days by foot through flooded territory to reach Pariang, the nearest town to Yida, to buy medicine. These medicines have now finished.The Sudanese Development and Relief Agency (SUDRA), with assistance from Episcopal Relief & Development and Hope International, is seeking to get more support to the refugees in Yida. Some medicines from SUDRA are currently in transit to Yida. Episcopal Relief & Development will soon send additional support for SUDRA’s work there. But more is needed.Because Yida is classified as a transitory camp, the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR does not provide assistance for agriculture or education. Desperate for more food, the refugees in Yida have planted around their homes seeds they brought with them from the Nuba Mountains, but the tools available to them are few and far between. Desperate for education, refugees have organized community schools, with volunteer teachers. Most of the teachers have not been trained, and supplies are so few that more than a hundred people cram around a small blackboard. These make-shift schools service only a small fraction of those who desire education.A community-organized school provides education at Yida Refugee Camp. Photo/Robin Denney“My first priority is education, and second is agriculture,” Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail, bishop of Kadugli diocese, which includes Nuba Mountains, reported after his recent visit to Yida camp. Most people from the Diocese of Kadugli have been displaced either into the camp or into the mountains.The cathedral and diocesan buildings in the Kadugli diocese were burned by government forces more than a year ago. They also sought to kill the bishop, but he was traveling at the time for medical treatment in the U.S. While there, he testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Africa, saying, “If I were not here today to testify before you, I do not know whether I would be in a mass grave in Kadugli now.”The civil war in Sudan reaches beyond the Nuba Mountains, including Darfur, and Blue Nile state as well. Approximately 655,000 Sudanese have been displaced from Blue Nile and South Kordofan States.Former U.N. Coordinator for Sudan, Mukesh Kapila, said that the current conflict in South Kordofan is even worse than the famous Darfur genocide which began in 2003. Video evidence found by the rebels and released by Al Jazeera shows government soldiers being instructed to leave no one alive. Evidence of mass graves has also been gathered by the Enough Project. Because U.N. and humanitarian organizations have been banned from the area by the Khartoum government, there are not solid numbers regarding casualties, many thousands have died. But it is clear that urgent action is needed from the international community to curtail the violence and ensure humanitarian assistance.— Robin Denney from the Diocese of El Camino Real was an Episcopal Church missionary in Sudan from 2009-2011 and served as an agriculture consultant to the Episcopal Church of Sudan. She recently returned to South Sudan to visit some of the church’s agriculture projects and the Yida Refugee Camp.Suggested Action:Pray for the diocese of Kadugli, Bishop Andudu, and for all those displaced by the conflict in Sudan.Give to Episcopal Relief & Development to support the relief effort in Yida camp, and other refugee camps in South Sudan.Stay informed by looking for news online, or by joining American Friends of the Episcopal Church of Sudan weekly e-blast.

Photo: Pool via Reuters[Episcopal News Service] The 2018 royal wedding is looking a bit less royal this week, after Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle about their decision to quit the British royal family’s inner circle and move to the United States with their son, Archie.But was the royal wedding even a proper wedding?That question is up for debate, sparked by a brief comment made by Markle during the interview, in which she said the couple actually were married three days earlier, in a private ceremony with just Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.“We called the archbishop and we just said, ‘Look, this thing, this spectacle is for the world, but we want our union between us,’” Markle told Winfrey in the interview, which first aired March 7 on CBS. The couple’s private ceremony was held “in our backyard” at Kensington Palace, Markle said.“Just the three of us,” Harry confirmed.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches during the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Photo: ReutersThe Episcopal Church’s Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preached at the public ceremony on May 19, 2018, in Windsor Castle at the couple’s request, generating international acclaim for his sermon on the power of love. Welby, as head of the Church of England, presided over the royal wedding and solemnized the marriage, but under his church’s canonical law, a second wedding of the same couple is not allowed.“A couple who are already lawfully married cannot choose to re-marry each other, unless there is some doubt as to the validity of the earlier marriage,” according to a clergy handbook.Does that mean Curry preached at a wedding that wasn’t a real wedding? Not necessarily. The invalid ceremony might have been the private one.A Church Times article noted that a Church of England marriage isn’t official unless it has at least two witnesses, in addition to the officiant. If Harry and Markle’s private ceremony with Welby included no other people, it may not have passed that test.A spokesperson from Lambeth Palace, where the archbishop is based, declined to comment on the matter, according to the Church Times.BREAKING: Buckingham Palace statement following Meghan and Harry interview:”The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.” pic.twitter.com/Zbu1iNBlHO— NBC News (@NBCNews) March 9, 2021The royal family reacted publicly to the interview for the first time on March 9. “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” Queen Elizabeth II, Harry’s grandmother, said in the statement released by Buckingham Palace.“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.

Monterrey 55 is a restoration and redevelopment project located in one of the most upcoming, upbeat, re–developing districts in Mexico City: La Colonia Roma. In the 19th century, Monterrey Av. used to be a tree decorated boulevard with majestic residences where the intellectual elite used to live. Unfortunately, due to the new urbanization practices of the late ’70s, Monterrey Avenue’s life changed drastically putting these old houses in jeopardy. This is where this project comes in.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Isometric 1Save this picture!© Rafael GamoWe have taken a three-story beautiful house built in 1925 that had been stripped out of its character by turning it into an office space, and we have infused it with a new life. A central goal of this project was to rescue one of the main features of this house, its wooden three flight staircase that envelopes the skylight at the center of the house. We recovered this area as the main entrance and residential lobby. This refurbished area leads to the new contemporary tower. Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe original house occupies sixty percent of the plot; in the remaining forty percent we have built this eight-story tower using a light steel structure and a glass façade. The original house, which dimensions exceeds today’s needs, has been turned into two apartments that have respected the original layout. The new tower is attuned to the variety of lifestyles that inhabit La Colonia Roma and Mexico City as a whole. Thus, it considers the needs and requirements of a wide variety of possible residents.

Speakers included Immortal Technique, Amiri and Amina Baraka, Professor Burton Caine, Fred Hampton Jr., the Welfare Poets and more. Taped messages from political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal and MOVE 9 members Janine Africa and Delbert Africa were aired.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Apr 7, 2019 1 of 3 ICMC President Mike Beard Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmers Concerned About More Than Trade Farmers Concerned About More Than Trade SHARE INFB President Randy Kron Kendell Culp Previous articleFarmers Need Stalled Disaster Bill to Get Moving in CongressNext articleFarmers Concerned About More Than Trade on the HAT Monday Morning Edition Gary Truitt Farmers Concerned About More Than Trade SHARE The visit by VP Pence to a Boone County farm on Thursday was all about trade, but he heard more than just a call for a trade deal. Pence came to listen to what farmers had to say, and what he heard was a call for adoption of the USMCA trade agreement. Pence assured the farmers that he and the President are firmly in support of the trade agreement that will replace NAFTA but called on Congress to do its part, “The President has done his part, now it is time for Congress to do theirs.”However, the farmers also gave Mr. Pence a strong message on the poor state of the farm economy and the financial stress that many growers are experiencing. Kendell Culp, from Jasper County, said the situation is getting serious, “We are spending our savings to subsidize our farming operations; and, as you know, that cannot go on for very long.” Mike Beard, from Clinton County, said many growers are running out of money and patience, “As we get ready to plant the crop for this year, some of us have not sold the crop from last year. With the planting of the new crop, it brings the urgency to an immediate level.”Quick action is needed, according to Jeff Demerly of Wolcott. “Something needs to be done now,” he stated. Young farmer Jacob Smoker said something needs to be done to stimulate the farm economy, “Just getting something back into the market to get it functioning again would be great. It would give us as young farmers some certainty and help us put together operating lines of credit and help us show bankers we can make a profit in 2019.” Smoker said, after talking with the VP, he is more optimistic about the future, “I feel incredibly confident after having him here and being able to talk with him one-on-one. It firms up the belief that our message will get back to Washington.”While the farmers came away more optimistic, in reality we start the week no closer to a resolution than we were last week.
