These 2 FTSE 100 share prices have fallen by 30%+. Here’s why I’d buy them in an ISA today

Peter Stephens | Friday, 3rd April, 2020 | More on: BHP PSN Buying FTSE 100 stocks that have fallen heavily over recent weeks could be viewed as a risky move by many investors. They may continue to decline in the coming weeks, with the outlook for the world economy remaining highly challenged.However, over the long run, a number of FTSE 100 companies could offer recovery potential. Here are two prime examples that have experienced 30%+ share price falls so far in 2020. But their financial positions and track records suggest now could be the right time to buy them in an ISA for the long run.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…PersimmonHousebuilders such as Persimmon (LSE: PSN) are facing unprecedented circumstances at the present time. The company’s sales are set to decline significantly over the current year as restrictions on people’s movement leads to intense challenges for the industry.However, Persimmon has a cash position of £610m. That should provide solid financial cover to survive current economic challenges. It has also postponed its dividends in the current year. That should help it withstand what may yet prove to be a prolonged period of economic disruption.But the company’s performance prior to the coronavirus outbreak had been improving. The investments it’s made in strengthening customer satisfaction ratings seemed to be having an impact. That could also help strengthen its financial performance in the long run.Trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 6.1, following its 38% share price fall since the start of the year, Persimmon appears to offer a wide margin of safety. Ok, more difficulties could be ahead in the short term. But in the long run, it may produce a strong recovery as the housing market returns to growth.BHPAnother FTSE 100 share that’s fallen heavily since the start of the year is BHP (LSE: BHP). The miner’s share price is down by 30% in 2020, with an uncertain outlook for the world economy weighing on investor sentiment.Many major economies currently imposing restrictions on movement. So a lower level of economic activity seems highly likely over the coming months. Lower demand for commodities may cause BHP’s financial performance to deteriorate, despite producing a relatively impressive set of first-half results.For example, the company reported an increase in its underlying attributable profit of 39% versus the first half of the previous year. Its free cash flow of $3.7bn also reflected higher iron ore prices. Meanwhile, its solid balance sheet suggests it has the financial strength to survive the current economic challenges facing many of its main markets.BHP’s P/E ratio of around 7.5 also suggests that it could offer good value for money. Its profitability is almost certain to decline in the near term. But it seems to have the financial strength and recovery potential to post improving total returns over the long run.

Jacob W. Owensby was elected April 21 as fourth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana.Owensby, 54, dean of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Shreveport, Louisiana, was elected on the sixth ballot from a field of three candidates. One other nominee withdrew after the second ballot, two others withdrew after the third, and a fourth after the fifth. Owensby received 78 votes of 143 cast in the lay order and 30 of 58 cast in the clergy order.The election was held at a special convention at St. James’ Church in Alexandria. Delegates participated in a service of holy Eucharist before balloting began.Owensby will succeed the Rt. Rev. D. Bruce MacPherson, who will retire in July after 10 years as bishop of the diocese.Shortly after his election, Dean Owensby said: “I am humbled to be called to be the fourth Bishop of Western Louisiana and filled with affection for the good people who make this part of our state their geographical and spiritual home.  Joy, excitement, and anticipation have me a little tongue-tied right now.  But I can say that my first and most important job is to love the people of this Diocese and to help them grow in their witness to the extravagant love of God in Jesus Christ.  I am especially looking forward to building deep relationships with my fellow clergy, visiting with our congregations and helping them to grow in vitality, and serving our Lord together with these wonderful people.”Owensby has been dean of St. Mark’s Cathedral, the seat of the Western Louisiana diocese, since January 2009. He previously served as rector of Emmanuel Church, Webster Groves, Missouri; as rector of St. Stephen’s Church, Huntsville, Alabama; and as assistant rector at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, in Jacksonville, Florida. He holds bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in philosophy from Emory University, and a master of divinity degree from School of Theology at the University of the South. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1997.He is married to Joy Bruce Owensby, and they have three children; Andrew (23), Meredith (19) and Patrick (15).Because the election took place within 120 days of a meeting of General Convention, the House of Deputies and a majority of bishops with jurisdiction must consent to the election during their meeting in Indianapolis in July 2012.Pending necessary consents, the consecration is due to take place at 10 a.m. on July 21 at St. Mark’s Cathedral.The other nominees were:The Very Rev. John B. Burwell, 60, rector, Church of the Holy Cross, Isle of Palms, South Carolina (Diocese of South Carolina)The Rt. Rev. William O. Gregg, 61, assistant bishop, Diocese of North CarolinaThe Rev.

A “Bombora” is an indigenous Australian term, possibly with its origin in the ‘Dharuk’ language spoken in the Sydney region, to describe a wave breaking over a shallow reef or sandbank that has been adopted into Australian surf culture.  Save this picture!© Prue RuscoeThis dwelling house, built in a mixed and densely packed street located just a stone’s throw from the Bondi Beach is an homage to that surfers’ haven; to the swell and the waves that have formed a rich intertidal culture for millennia. The three-story home, with accommodation for a tribe of three generations, and a menagerie of dogs, cats and chickens, is compressed into a compact site. Its wavy frontage forms an open arm to embrace the central entrance, and with no space for a veranda or portico, a steel hood shades the front door, reached by a fluid path and entry steps.

first_imgA scene of ordinary life in France, in these times of conflict: On Thursday, Dec. 6, late morning, in front of the gates of a secondary school in a very peaceful town in the Paris suburbs, about 100 students aged 15-17 are strolling from their high school to go to lunch, chatting, joking and relieved that the half-day classes are over. Strange: In front of the school buildings, a group of police block access to the street that these young people usually take to get home. So without any fuss, the students take another street. Then a troop of about 20 riot cops (CRS), equipped with helmets, breastplates and shields, suddenly appears and charges. Faced with bewildered and terrified teenagers, the CRS stop and line up; three of them step forward and arm their tear gas cannons. A youth screams: “Let’s get out of here, they’re going to shoot! They’re going to shoot!”They shot. Those students who do not remain frozen in shocked terror flee with all their strength; the others suddenly find themselves assaulted, brutally beaten, insulted. One of them, who fell to the ground, was beaten  by two CRSs who yelled at him: “Dirty bastard!”; a girl, beaten, her mouth bloody, hears another CRS screaming: “Little shit!” Under the assault by what are called, even in cases like this one, “peacekeepers,” young people manage to escape, running into the school to take refuge or rushing into adjacent alleys. What had these youths done? Nothing. They had done absolutely nothing. They were leaving school, going home, and the CRS brutalized them. For no reason.Incomprehensible. Unacceptable. Worrisome. There have been dozens and dozens of events like this in France in the last few days. In this France that President Emmanuel Macron has “reformed” with blows from police batons. The day before this assault, Dec. 5, several high school students had been seriously injured by Flash-Balls fired by cops. One, 16 years old, hit in the forehead, in the Pays de la Loire region in western France; the other, same age, hit in the face, in Ile-de-France, the region that includes Paris. Videos of these events were immediately posted on social networks. In the two schools, general assemblies of teachers voted their solidarity with their students and called for the general closing of high schools.That day more than 200 high schools were blockaded throughout the country, and many others were disrupted. The mobilization of “Yellow Vests” is spreading like oil on water, and the protest has now reached the world of students. High school unions protest ‘reform’At the call of high school unions, or sometimes more spontaneously, many young people are demonstrating against the neoliberal reform of the national education system. This “reform” is aimed at increasing school fees and tightening university entrance selection in order to further exclude children from low-income families. The government’s response: Send in the troops and have them fire tear gas canisters and Flash-Balls — at random or as soon as one garbage can burns.Throughout the country, more than 150 teenagers were arrested on Dec. 5 alone. In the most working-class town in the Paris region, Seine-Saint-Denis, anger and protests are already spreading to middle schools for children aged 11-14.On the same day students approved and carried out the occupation of several sites at the Sorbonne (on the Tolbiac campus at Paris I, Paris III Censier). So the student protest movement that was broken up last April 20 when the CRS evacuated the “Free Commune of Tolbiac” by force could start all over again. Young people are already frightened by the risks of unemployment, precariousness, and multiple and continuous socioeconomic difficulties. One thing is very clear: A regime that mistreats its youth by brutalizing them has no future. It is condemned. Before change happens, however, the regime will use the means of violence (which it calls “legitimate”) at its disposal to try to maintain its own order — an evil, cynical and ultimately untenable order.Herrera is a Marxist economist, a researcher at the Centre national de la Recherche scientifique (CNRS), who works at the Centre d’Économie de la Sorbonne, Paris.
