Michael Baxter | Saturday, 13th June, 2020 | More on: NCC Image source: Getty Images Why aren’t more investors talking about investing in this British cybersecurity company? Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. See all posts by Michael Baxter A price-to-earnings ratio of around 30 may not appear to suggest bargain investment, but I think NCC Group (LSE:NCC) is a perfect example of the kind of company that should thrive in the post-Covid-19 world.NCC is a cybersecurity business with a worldwide reach. It works with private and public sectors, has a presence in the UK, the rest of Europe, North America and, perhaps most important of all, a growing business in the Asia Pacific region.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 company is research-driven and has outstanding expertise in the cyber arena.NCC shares NCC shares have taken a hammering since the Covid-19 crisis began. The share price fell from around 230p at the beginning of the year to 147p.A superficial analysis would suggest that the fall in the share price is strange. After all, cybersecurity is supposed to be an area due to see rapid growth. A slightly more detailed look at the company reveals the reasons — many of its customers are struggling, and this will hit sales. Look deeper still, and the initial analysis looks about right.Cybersecurity set to explode To describe cyber as an area likely to see rapid growth is like describing the sun as a region of our solar system where it is quite hot.Cyber isn’t merely set to grow fast, business activity in this area will explode.It was The Economist that said “data is the new oil,” and it was right. PwC projects that AI will contribute $15.7tn a year to the global economy by 2030. Data is to AI, what oil is to the internal combustion engine. It makes AI possible. However, the more data we use, the greater is the risk presented by cybersecurity.Covid-19 and cyber I wonder whether the markets have understood the implications of the Covid-19 crisis and associated lockdowns in all of this. We have seen an acceleration in the move to digital. Post-Covid-19, I expect remote working to stay. The so-called Zoom economy is not going away, and this, in turn, creates a massive cybersecurity challenge. With employees working away from their offices, maybe accessing the internet via a router applying default passwords, the risks of data breaches grows enormously.I expect the data economy to grow exponentially, and the risks of data breaches and need for robust cybersecurity to grow at a similar pace. Shares in companies that can offer expertise in this area may not necessarily increase exponentially, but I do expect them to increase pretty fast.NCC has expertise in abundance. It is, by the way, working with the NHS and supporting its use of data from contact tracing apps. I think the fact that the NCC share price has fallen so far this year illustrates how the markets have not cottoned on to how the world is changing.The lower share price means its P/E ratio has fallen from the giddy heights seen earlier in the year, while the dividend yield looks a lot more attractive — even if it takes a one-off knock this year, which I think is a distinct possibility.NCC Group is due to provide a trading update following the end of its financial year to 30 May 2020 on 23 June. I, for one, am looking forward to it. As for the shares, I think they look tempting.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Michael Baxter has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) share price has been on a rollercoaster ride over the past 12 months. The UK banking share toppled to nine-year lows below 25p in September. But buying interest in the FTSE 100 bank has risen strongly since those troughs. In fact Lloyds is now trading fractionally more expensively than it was a year ago around 42p.But can the Lloyds share price keep on soaring?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…Reasons to be cheerfulHere are three reasons to be optimistic about the Lloyds share price:#1: Turning the Covid-19 tide: Britain’s services-dependent economy meant that domestic GDP was one of the worst affected of all developing economies following the Covid-19 outbreak. But there are hopes that the UK could be well past the worst in an obvious boon to UK-focused cyclical shares like Lloyds. Indeed, the Bank of England recently predicted that the economy will bounce back strongly thanks to the successful vaccine rollout. Revenues could well be about to soar (and bad loan provisions recede) at the likes of Lloyds.#2: Dividends return: Helped by its robust capital position Lloyds announced at February’s full-year results that it was reinstating dividends. The bank said that it plans to “resume [a] progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend policy.” City analysts certainly expect shareholder payouts to keep growing over the next couple of years too. Thus Lloyds sports chunky yields of 4% and 5.5% for 2021 and 2022 respectively.#3: Riding the digital wave: In a difficult year Lloyds at least continued to make progress on making its business more digital. Customer satisfaction rates keep on improving in this area and the bank added 2m mobile app customers in 2020. The FTSE 100 firm has also digitalised 78% of its cost base now, beating its own targets for creating a more efficient company.Threats to the Lloyds share priceThat said, there are still significant threats to the bank’s long-term profits outlook. These could cause fresh trouble for the Lloyds share price:#1: Low interest rates: An environment of rock-bottom interest rates has been damaging earnings at the likes of Lloyds for more than a decade now. Weak interest rates squeeze the rates that banks lend to borrowers at, and the rates that they offer to savers. But things have got even worse since coronavirus broke out as the Bank of England cut rates to new historic lows. These might remain in place for many years to support the economic recovery as well.#2: Huge competition: The steps Lloyds is taking to embrace the fast-growing digital banking segment are encouraging. However, there’s no guarantee that this technological drive will prevent its customer base from steadily eroding. More digitally-based rivals are set to enter the British market (JP  Morgan is the latest to throw its hat into the ring). So Lloyds will have to keep investing heavily to try and stay ahead of the pack.In conclusion…It’s quite possible that the Lloyds share price could keep surging. But I won’t be investing in the FTSE 100 bank, given the still-uncertain economic outlook and soaring competition. I’d rather buy other UK shares for my ISA.

[email protected] celebrates working-class struggles, past, present & future

first_imgNew York — Workers World Party celebrated the 200th birthday of Karl Marx here on May 6 with “[email protected]: Class Struggle in the Age of Trump,” a series of panels and discussions. The event analyzed the relevance of Marx today to oppressed nationalities and groups as well as an analysis of who the working class is today.Workers World contributing editor and event co-organizer Greg Butterfield kicked off the celebration with a vital quote from Karl Marx: “Labor in the white skin can never free itself as long as labor in the Black skin is branded.”Tying it to today’s political reality, Butterfield continued, “In this era of Donald Trump’s undisguised white supremacy and the resurgence of neofascist movements in the U.S. and western Europe, the struggle against racism and for solidarity among all workers is key to advancing the struggle for socialism.”WWP First Secretary Larry Holmes discussed the nationwide teachers’ strikes and what a revolutionary movement they are in the current political context. “This strike is illegal according to bourgeois law, which means that it is a rebellion. Tens of thousands of workers are saying ‘to hell with it,’ they can get fired, but they’re still walking out.” Today’s working class is increasingly militant and multinational, he added.WWP Secretariat member and International Action Center Co-Director Sara Flounders talked about how “Marxism speaks to all the movements of the colonized and nationally oppressed. Every fighter for national liberation looked to Marxism to understand how to fight imperialism.” WWP organizer John Steffins spoke about Russian revolutionary leader V.I. Lenin’s contributions to developing Marxism in the age of imperialism, warning that appeals to “return to Marx” by ignoring the history of revolutionary struggles of the 20th century are a dead end for today’s fighters.We then heard from Mike Legaspi of BAYAN-USA about how Marx has been integral to the struggle for liberation in the Philippines and about his legacy: “Marx died a long time ago, but his legacy lives on in us today. It is through class struggle that proletarian revolutionaries become immortal.” Jessica Schwartz of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization spoke on applying the mass line developed by Chinese revolutionary Mao Zedong to organizing workers in unions.Today’s working classDuring the second panel, chaired by WWP member and event co-organizer Julie Varughese, party members and candidates discussed what the working class looks like today. The panelists also answered questions from the audience.Christian Cobb, a WWP activist and organizer with the People’s Power Assemblies, reminded us that “unions are Marxism in action.” As we see in teachers’ strikes across the nation, the rank and file are leading the way because workers are the union. Sara Catalinotto, a New York teacher and militant, spoke about her recent participation in a delegation to support striking Oklahoma education workers. Edward Yudelovich talked about repression against workers, highlighting the Trump administration’s attempt to prove a “conspiracy” against activists in unions who were arrested at the #J20 2017 counter-inaugural protests.Al Shiflett, a WWP candidate member, discussed capitalism and the #MeToo movement. Marx was critical of the hierarchical and diametrical opposition between men and women, in which feminized labor is seen as insignificant and thus created a population that’s easier to divide and exploit.Taryn Fivek, an economics teacher and organizer with WWP and the International Action Center, said, “Laden with debt, depressed, anxious, facing down killer cops, low wages, bad health care and precarious employment, young people seem to have given up on capitalism.“The Trump presidency is the death spasm of an era,” Fivek declared. “It is up to us to build the next era, and it must be socialist, or we will perish. Because the only thing youth have to look forward to inheriting from their parents is a dead planet.”Ted Kelly, a WWP activist based in Philadelphia, discussed prisoners and how they’re one of the most oppressed sections of the working class. It is slavery in its modern form and, as Marx noted, “Every independent workers’ movement in the U.S. will be paralyzed as long as slavery remains a central part of the republic.” Thousands of prisoners subscribe to Workers World newspaper, and Kelly reminded us that it is “our duty to grow the proletariat” by joining prisoners in our struggle.Mary Kaessinger, a WWP wheelchair user, spoke about disabled workers and how the Fair Labor Standards Act allows employers to pay subminimum wages to disabled people, prisoners and restaurant workers. Currently there is a struggle to eliminate the subminimum wage at the state level, with the goal of ultimately challenging it at the federal level. Disabled people are fighting to join the workforce.Solidarity with refugees, students, sex workersKayla Popuchet expressed anger against the system felt by young people increasingly shut out from basic human needs. Ana Androvic spoke on the plight of refugees and migrant workers and the need for classwide solidarity with their struggle. Haakon Lenzi talked about racism and gentrification, which he described as “about class struggle, a way for capitalists to seize property and displace people.” This writer also addressed the intense exploitation of Amazon.com workers.WWP candidate member John Ebho gave an enthusiastic account of Marx’s influence on Thomas Sankara, the revolutionary leader of Burkina Faso. Renee Imperato, a disabled trans activist and Vietnam veteran, noted that “Capitalist imperialism survives on divide and conquer,” a strategy which failed in Vietnam since many U.S. soldiers refused to fire on  their fellow working-class Vietnamese fighters. “The Vietnamese had one weapon U.S. imperialism couldn’t defeat: revolutionary class hatred.”WWP member Sofia spoke on the increased assault by the state against sex workers through the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act, which shut down online forums used by these workers to promote safety and community. They talked about ways to support sex workers, who are part of our class.The event ended, quite appropriately, with the singing of “The Internationale” and eating of birthday cake. The working-class anthem was led off by 2016 WWP presidential candidate Monica Moorehead and Larry Holmes, with renowned Yugoslav composer Milos Raickovich accompanying them on the piano.Afterward, we marched to The New School, led by a student, Mia, to join cafeteria workers and students. The school wants to fire dozens of cafeteria workers, some of whom have worked there for more than 16 years and have pensions. Many of the workers are Black and Brown.The school tried to divide students and cafeteria workers by attempting to replace the workers with students who are not unionized and would be paid less. But this attempt failed, and students have joined the workers and occupied the cafeteria. WWP contributed food and cash donations.There isn’t a more fighting way to show that Karl Marx, 200 years after his birth, is alive and well in our current revolutionary struggles.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Leonardo of Anti-Aging

first_img More Cool Stuff faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Dr. Robert B. Seltzer, M.D.The casual passerby on Green Street in Pasadena might not give the Thatcher Medical Buildings a second thought.Even those who venture down its wood-paneled hallways would scarcely imagine that some of the highest-tech lasers in the country, and more of them even than those operated at USC or UCLA, are at work behind the paneling.Manned by Dr. Robert B. Seltzer, Board Certified dermatologist since 1978, those lasers offer the promise of a luminescent fountain of youth to patients of Seltzer’s Advanced Laser Anti-aging Medical Center, where the good doctor combines his aesthetic sensibilities with cutting-edge technology to rejuvenate patients’ skin and, in essence, reverse the aging process. Seltzer cites demographics and economics as his patients’ motivations.“We’re a youth-oriented society,” said Seltzer. “A lot of baby boomers are getting older but they are youthful, they’re still energetic, they work out and they’re in good shape, and they want to look that way. They want their face to match their outlook.“If you look good, the face you present to the public reflects back how you feel emotionally. A lot of patients are re-entering the market. They have to look younger. They have to compete with a younger group. So I see a lot of patients, you know, mothers in their forties going back to work or men in their fifties switching jobs. They have to look their best.”In order to help his patients fulfill their potential, Seltzer relies on his long trajectory as a specialist in cosmetic dermatology, and constantly updates his knowledge. And owning more lasers than either USC or UCLA’s dermatology programs doesn’t hurt either.“I upgrade, I go to lectures, I teach, I read every journal. We teach through the laser companies, not through the university. The laser companies actually have doctors come out to us to instruct them. I have more lasers than either UCLA or USC in my practice. We have some residents from the residency programs come to my office to rotate through, to see some of the machines that the university doesn’t have. And in the greater LA area there are only between five and seven large laser clinics, that means having over 20 lasers. I have close to 30 lasers. We upgrade them all the time.”Patient care doesn’t begin and end with lasers, however. Seltzer uses a combination of treatments to approach each individual’s needs.He refers to four factors for an aging face: dynamic lines, loss of volume, laxity and epidermal and dermal change. Each factor receives different forms of medical attention.“One is dynamic lines,” Seltzer said. “These are voluntary muscles, like frown lines, wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, and that’s using the botulinum toxin.“The second is loss of volume. As we age we lose soft tissue and volume and bone. Then it’s using certain fillers of different types. Juvéderm and Restylane use hyaluronic acid, while longer acting Radiesse is differently configured, or a dermal stimulator like Sculptra to re-plump the skin longer term.“Third, laxity. As we get older the skin gets lax. And we have radio frequency, not just lasers because lasers don’t penetrate deep enough. We use Thermage, and there’s a new machine that’s coming out that I’m going to be getting in mid-June to be trained on. I’ll compare the different ones. One may need more treatments but hurt less, the other may need less treatments but is more uncomfortable, so you want to give options to patients.“And the next thing you’ll look at is epidermal and dermal change: wrinkles, broken blood vessels. There we use fractionated lasers, and for broken blood vessels we use photofacial machines, pulse dye lasers.“So you really have to be an expert in how to evaluate the thing itself. And to also do the procedures: we do them day in and day out…We’re working five to six hours every day.” After evaluating and treating the aging face, Dr. Seltzer takes pains to educate his patients on how to maintain their results.“You could take somebody who’s fifty and make them look early forties, late thirties,” Seltzer said. “Then you try to educate the patient on how to take care of their skin. So if someone’s spending a certain amount of money, I want them to maintain it and not need follow-ups.”And the doctor walks his talk. He practices several anti-aging elements, including exercise, low caloric intake, non-smoking, minimal alcohol intake, adequate rest and meditation.Dr. Seltzer repeatedly affirmed how much he loves his work, both verbally and through an irrepressible smile as he describes the job. He especially appreciates his patient response to looking better and younger. The marriage of an aesthetic sensibility with mastery of skill allows for him to achieve such results.“Most of my friends are artists,” Seltzer said. “I think you have to have an aesthetic sense of what looks good. The gym where I train, there’s a lot of women from Beverly Hills. I think their fillers and some of their treatments look ridiculous. Their lips are too big, their cheeks look clownish. I just had a patient today who had bad acne scars, wrinkles, some tightening. I resurfaced his face for deep acne scars. And he told me today, people have just come up and said ‘You look so much better,’ and they don’t know why. It’s not people coming up and saying, ‘What did you have done?’ It’s more ‘You look better’ and they don’t understand why; you just look more youthful, and they can’t pinpoint it. That’s what I can do. The things that I do shouldn’t be so obvious that somebody says I did your lips or I puffed your cheeks, it should be that I did it in a way that aesthetically looks very nice but is not obvious. It’s the whole gestalt of it.”After more than twenty years of practice, working with lasers about six hours daily, Dr. Seltzer has achieved a philosophical mastery of his art. His clinic is located at 960 East Green Street in Pasadena. For appointments or a complimentary cosmetic consultation, call (626) 449-3830, or book visit online at www.laserbeauty.com.
