He should be the star who won’t even play the last encore,” it read.In the end,?Blair’s departure left the public – and the party –?strangely cold. But his disciple David Miliband, who narrowly lost out in the race to become Labour’s new leader, seems to have triumphed where his tutor failed.Yesterday, he delivered a barnstorming speech, his best conference address ever. He was gracious in defeat, but also had a stark warning for those who want the party to tack to the left under his brother Ed. Labour went into politics “not to practice class war, but to end it,” he said.The elder Miliband also appeared to contradict his brother and leader on foreign policy. In his campaign, Ed promised a foreign policy based on “values” not “alliances”, a nod to those Labour members who think the former government was slavishly pro-American. But yesterday David Miliband said: “It’s not the opposite of an independent foreign policy to choose to work with President Obama and Secretary Clinton. Britain’s values and interests are best pursued with a superpower whose leaders share our values and interests.”David Miliband is refusing to say whether he will serve under Ed, but this speech sounded more like a swansong than a pitch for a shadow cabinet job. He won’t announce his intentions until tomorrow afternoon, for fear of overshadowing his brother’s big speech today. If he does go, it will certainly be with the crowds wanting more.

Best shares to buy now? This is how I’d invest £5k today

first_img Roland Head | Wednesday, 13th January, 2021 Best shares to buy now? This is how I’d invest £5k today Image source: Getty Images. I’ve been investing for many years and have reached a stage where I only buy a few new shares each year. But what if I was starting out today? In this piece, I’ve selected five firms I would buy if I was building a brand new portfolio.Each stock offers an attractive dividend yield plus some growth potential. I’m consistent in my preferences – I already own three of these stocks, and I’m hoping to add the other two to my portfolio in the coming weeks.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…Bargain gold miner?I’m not a fan of holding physical gold, but I’m happy to invest in gold mining stocks when they look cheap. I think that Egypt-based Centamin could be the most attractive option in this sector at the moment.Centamin’s share price crashed last year after the company said technical problems at its Sukari mine would hit gold production. But the business has a decent track record and things now seem to be getting back on track. With no debt and a forecast dividend yield of 5%, Centamin is a share I’d buy now.This sin stock yields 8.7%Smoking isn’t as popular as it used to be. But Imperial Brands still sold 239bn cigarettes last year, generating an operating profit of £2.7bn. It’s a big business with attractive profit margins.The generous dividend is backed by surplus cash, and City analysts expect profits to continue edging higher. With the shares trading on just six times forecast earnings and offering a yield of 8.7%, I think Imperial is just too cheap.Pharma split makes this a best buyGlaxoSmithKline is a well-known name, thanks to consumer brands such as Sensodyne and Nicorette. But these are only one part of the company’s business, which also produces vaccines and specialist medicines for more serious illnesses.GSK boss Emma Walmsley has beefed up both sides of the company and now plans to spin out the consumer healthcare business into a new company.I already hold GSK and intend to buy more shares before the split. My analysis suggests that splitting the business will release value for existing shareholders, who will receive shares in the consumer healthcare business. I view this as one of the best shares to buy today.Founder-CEO has delivered great resultsI don’t normally invest in construction firms, but Morgan Sindall Group is an exception. This FTSE 250 firm is still run by founder John Morgan and has the hallmarks of a founder-led business. These include good profitability, steady growth, and strong cash generation.The pandemic delayed progress in some sectors, but many of Morgan Sindall’s larger civil infrastructure projects have continued unchecked. The shares trade on 10 times 2021 forecast earnings, with a 3.7% yield. This is one I’m happy to continue holding.The best share I could buy now?One company I’ve admired for years but not bought is FTSE 100 accounting software group Sage. High profit margins and continued growth have supported strong shareholder returns in the past.The pace has slowed down in recent years as Sage has worked to move its business from software licences to online subscription services. Events last year caused some disruption, but I believe the group’s medium-term future looks strong. Sage shares look unusually affordable to me at the moment. This is one of the top shares on my buy list at the moment. Roland Head owns shares of GlaxoSmithKline, Imperial Brands, and Morgan Sindall Group.

Best shares to buy: I’m building my portfolio around these 4 stocks

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The best shares to buy depend on an investor’s financial goals and risk tolerance. For some, the best shares are lower-risk dividend stocks. For others, the best investments are growth stocks.Here, I’m going to highlight four stocks I’m building my own portfolio around. I believe these stocks are some of the best shares to buy today, given my investment horizon (20 years+) and risk tolerance (high).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…Warren Buffett’s top stockThe first stock I want to highlight is Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), which is Warren Buffett’s top holding. There are several reasons I like Apple as a long-term investment. One is the amazing ‘ecosystem’ it has developed. This has consumers (myself included) locked in, providing a competitive advantage.Another is the growth in the company’s services division (Apple Pay, App Store, etc). This revenue is growing strongly and becoming a significant part of overall revenues.Apple shares have had a great run in recent years. This doesn’t put me off though. In the long run, I think this company is likely to get much bigger.A technology powerhouseAnother stock I’m building my portfolio around is Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), a technology powerhouse that’s growing rapidly. Microsoft has dominant positions in a number of growth industries.Not only is it the leader in business productivity solutions and work-from-home technology, but it’s also a major player in the cloud computing and video gaming industries. All of these industries are set to grow significantly in the decade ahead. This growth should provide tailwinds for MSFT.The heart of the internetThe third stock I see as one of the best shares to buy is Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG), the owner of Google and YouTube. I like Alphabet for two main reasons.Firstly, I see Google as the heart of the internet. If you want to find something online, you generally go through Google. This means Alphabet is in a powerful position from an advertising perspective.Secondly, I’m excited about YouTube’s growth potential. This platform is growing at an incredible rate and has become a dominant form of entertainment.The king of online shoppingFinally, another core holding for me is Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), the biggest player in both e-commerce and cloud computing.Amazon has delivered phenomenal growth in recent years. However, in my view, it’s just getting started. Here in the UK, its market share in e-commerce is only around 10%. So I think there’s plenty of room to grow.It’s worth noting that the cloud computing industry is forecast to grow at nearly 20% per year between now and 2025. This industry growth should benefit AMZN.RisksIt’s worth pointing out that there are risks associated with each of these stocks. None are cheap. This means there’s valuation risk. If these companies experience setbacks (such as regulatory action), or there’s a market correction, their share prices could fall significantly.As a UK investor, I also face foreign exchange risk because these stocks are all listed in the US. I’ll also say that, in the short term, these stocks could underperform the market. Right now, investors are focused on reopening stocks and Big Tech is out of favour.From a long-term perspective however, I think these stocks have enormous potential. That’s why I see them as some of the best shares to buy today. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Hotshot: Leicester full-back Freddie Steward

first_img Leicester’s Freddie Steward breaks against Ulster (Getty Images) Leicester full-back Freddie Steward Date of birth 5 December 2000 Born Norwich Position Full-back Club Leicester Tigers Country EnglandHow old were you when you first played? Five. Mum and Dad took me down to my local club, Swaffham. My older brother already played there, so before then I’d go down to watch and throw a ball around on the touchline.Did you play any other sports? A lot. I played county cricket for a few years and a lot of hockey. It wasn’t until I was 13 or 14 that the rugby got more serious.Is that when you linked up with Leicester… Yes, at the local DPP (Developing Player Programme) centre in Norfolk. I had a few years there, then I was fortunate to get a place in the academy at U17-18 and I pushed on from there.Have you always been a full-back? I started at fly-half, then inside-centre. Then at 15 I moved to full-back; the academy coaches thought it would be a good idea to see how I went there.I love being behind the front line – lots of talking and bossing people around! I like the aerial contests and high balls. And I love the kicking battles too.How have you found the Premiership?  It’s been a massive step up but I’ve been introduced slowly, which is really good. It’s not like I was thrown in at the deep end. I’ve built experience gradually. The physicality is the biggest difference – big blokes!Who was your childhood hero? I used to watch Leicester a lot when I was younger and I looked up to Matt Smith, who is now an attack coach here, as a player. Also Geordie Murphy, one of the best full-backs to ever play the game.Who has been the biggest influence on your career? My mum and dad. They’ve spent countless hours watching me play and driving me around the country.What are your long-term goals? At the minute to stay consistent. I want to play in the Premiership for a long time, not be someone who started at 19 then dropped off and never played again. So to be consistent, in and around the starting XV.What do you do away from rugby? I’m studying for a degree in economics at Loughborough. It’s been tough to balance that with rugby but if I didn’t have that I’d just get bored all the time! I’m in my second year and will probably split my final year over two years.RW Verdict: Steward, who has played for England U18 and U20, has become a regular in the Tigers No 15 shirt since rugby resumed last August. Safe under the high ball and dynamic in attack, he is poised for a long career.
