£1k to invest? A FTSE 100 stock with growth potential I’d buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA Image source: Getty Images.

Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares FTSE 100 company Smurfit Kappa Group (LSE:SKG) is a key player in the paper and packaging market, which is seeing a boom thanks to increased e-commerce demand during the lockdown. I think it is a stock with growth potential and could be a sensible place to invest £1,000 via your Stocks and Shares ISA.The environment and safeguarding of the planet remain at the forefront of many business plans. This means companies are seeking more sustainable solutions for packing their products. Specialist packaging is necessary not only for online sales but also for the pharmaceuticals sector, food and beverages and industry in general.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…Distribution of vaccines, antibody tests and vitamin shots around the globe, is increasing demand for specialist packaging solutions. Likewise, food and drink, chemicals, batteries and dangerous substances also need to be packaged with care.This all makes packaging a vital piece in the globalisation puzzle, but it also has a great responsibility to be a leader in sustainability.Financial outlookSmurfit Kappa was founded in Ireland in 1934. It has a £6bn market cap, a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 14, and earnings per share are £1.79. Full-year results for 2019 showed earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) rose 7% to €1.65bn and revenue was up over 1% to €9.05bn. Growth in volume also boosted the FTSE 100 group’s performance.It opted to withhold its scheduled dividend payment as the coronavirus pandemic spread in April. This was a disappointing move for shareholders who had previously enjoyed a dividend rise of 12% after an uptick in core earnings and revenue for 2019.The Smurfit Kappa share price is up 29% since the March stock market crash, but I think it still has further to climb. Its directors have been buying a significant number of shares in the company, showing confidence in their ability to steer it to further success. It has plenty of liquidity to keep it afloat in times of trouble, with access to over €1.5bn. Its debt maturities have a five-year time frame and bonds mature in four years.A stock with growth potentialSome packaging solutions Smurfit Kappa is creating include Bag-In-Tube Packagings. These are the sort of things you see on supermarket shelves, such as squeeze tubes, twist tubes and collapsible or cartridge tubes. It uses them for high-end liquids and semi-liquids such as wine, fruit juices, spirits, maple syrup or olive oil. These are used by sectors such as Cosmetics & Oral Care, Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals and Cleaning Products.The sustainable packaging market is tipped to witness enormous growth in the coming years. A rise in non-biodegradable plastic waste is making the drive to adopt sustainable packaging methods more urgent. And globally, governments and local authorities backing and pushing for the production of biodegradable packaging is boosting this. Despite it being a market expected to experience substantial growth, competition is high and constant product innovation is necessary. However, Smurfit Kappa has an edge as it is already a market leader in this area. I feel optimistic about Smurfit Kappa’s growth prospects and ability to innovate. That’s why I think it is a stock with growth potential. I feel this FTSE 100 innovator would make a great addition to a Stocks and Shares ISA.

Facebook Twitter As the news, PR, and political posturing machines work overtime to crank out more and more extreme and inflammatory statements about the current trade war, it is important to keep a cool head and some perspective. I postulate that about 60% of what is being disseminated on various media is not designed to inform, but rather to manipulate opinion or create opposition. Thus, here are a few things to keep in mind as the rhetoric gets more shrill and the emotions more intense.1. This is not an agricultural issue. Yes, I know agriculture is being severely impacted and that trade is a big part of the farm economy, but this trade war was not started over agriculture. Hundreds of other industries are involved, along with agriculture. An end to the dispute will only come when progress is made on all of the issues. If an agreement is reached on ag products but not on cars, computers, and steel, the President is not likely to sign off on the deal. Likewise, if a deal is reached on toasters and trinkets but not on soybeans, the deal will not fly at the White House.2. The President knows what he is doing. There have been lots of accusations that Mr. Trump is out of control and out of touch. On the contrary, I think he knows exactly what he is doing. That is certainly not to say that I like what he is doing or agree with how he is doing it, but this is part of his overall plan. We should not be surprised by this, during the campaign he told us just what he was going to do and how he was going to do it.3. The other guys are cheating. Often lost in all the debate is the verifiable fact that China, Canada, Mexico, and the EU have been breaking international trading rules and have not been living up to agreements they made with the U.S. We have been yelling and complaining about this for years, but they keep doing it. So Mr. Trump is taking a more direct approach, he punched them in the nose. China responded with a sucker punch to the midsection, our soybean market. Our only hope is that sooner or later (hopefully sooner) both sides will get tired of throwing punches and sit down and talk.4. Aid vs. trade. The $12 billion aid package announced last week produced as much outrage within the farm community as it did outside of agriculture. While the details are yet to be released, one thing to keep in mind is that this is only a temporary program. Secretary Perdue has made it clear it is just for 2018. The hope is the trade war will be over by 2019. While most producers are not happy about the aid, the fact that there is something and there is an acknowledgement of the financial losses being incurred by farmers is a welcome departure from the past.This is not a time to be happy, but rather to be hopeful. If the President is successful in making significant improvements in our trading relationships, both inside and outside of agriculture, it will set the state for sustained growth in U.S. exports. If this is accomplished in a relatively short period of time, Mr. Trump’s aggressive negotiating style will be praised. If, however, this drags on for years, the President may find it harder to hang on to the strong rural support that helped put him in the Oval Office. In the meantime, let us remain vigilant, informed, and levelheaded.

Furthermore, it is alleged that despite instructions of the Chief Justice not to withhold the Circulation of any matter on the ground of non-removal of Office Objection, the Registry continues to raise a number of Office Objections, thereby circulation of the matters gets delayed. “Hon’ble the Chief Justice be requested to issue clear directions to the Registry not to insist on clearance of Office Objections other than the 2 stated above. An undertaking from the concerned Advocate, that she/he shall remove all objections within a period of 1 month after it being raised by Registry should be treated as enough compliance for circulation of the matter,” the Resolution states. Lastly, the Association has urged the Chief Justice to assign subject-wise Roster to each Judge as per the practice that used to prevail before the pandemic, instead of broader assignment of allotting Civil matters to 10 Single Judges and Criminal matters to 10 Single Judges.

‘This hurts’: Officials failed to follow up on 2016 DNA hit on man accused of killing North Carolina girl: DA
FBI Charlotte(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — The man suspected of sexually assaulting and killing 13-year-old Hania Aguilar was connected through DNA to a rape from 2016 — but investigators never followed up on that DNA evidence, and if they did, that likely would have saved the girl’s life, prosecutors said Wednesday.“This hurts,” Robeson County, North Carolina, District Attorney Johnson Britt told reporters. “This is like taking a punch to the gut and not being prepared to get it.”Michael McLellan, 34, is accused of abducting and killing the teen in November. Her disappearance sparked a massive manhunt and her body was found in Robeson County weeks later.Britt said he met with Hania’s mother and stepfather “to explain to them what had happened to express my regret, and our regret, that this had been missed. And that in all likelihood had this gone forward and we established a case against him at that time, Hania would not have died.”The missed opportunity came in 2016 when a victim’s rape kit — for a case in which there was no suspect — was sent for analysis, Britt said.The kit was analyzed in 2017, and Britt said the district attorney’s office was told there was a hit from the Combined DNA Index System, known as CODIS, meaning that DNA found from the 2016 victim’s rape kit possibly matched DNA of someone already in the system.CODIS contains DNA samples of known offenders convicted of felonies. McLellan had been convicted of first-degree burglary in January 2007, a class D felony, according to the North Carolina Department of Corrections’ website.Britt said an email including that information was sent to the sheriff’s office, copying the district attorney’s officeAt that point, Britt said that information should have given the sheriff’s office probable cause to seek a search warrant, obtain a DNA sample from McLellan and compare that sample to the 2016 rape kit.As Britt held the CODIS report in his hand Wednesday, a reporter asked him if the information on that paper could have saved Hania’s life.“Potentially yes, and probably yes,” Britt responded.Britt said his office and the sheriff’s office are trying to determine how this evidence was overlooked.Hania was abducted outside her home at the Rosewood Mobile Home in Lumberton on the morning of Nov. 5.She had taken the keys to her aunt’s SUV to start the car when a man dressed in all black with a yellow bandanna over his face forced her in the car and drove away, police said. The stolen SUV was found three days later in Lumberton.Britt said Wednesday that, through the recovered car, McLellan became a suspect in Hania’s kidnapping one week after she vanished, though he was not officially named a suspect until weeks later. By that time McLellan was in custody for a different crime, prosecutors said.Evidence from Hania’s recovered body also linked McLellan to the crime, Britt said.McLellan is charged with 10 felonies in Hania’s case including first-degree murder, first-degree forcible rape, statutory rape, abduction of a child and first-degree kidnapping, the FBI said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
