Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 30th May, 2020 | More on: ADM Buying any FTSE 100 stock after the recent market crash might seem like a risky prospect. Indeed, the coronavirus crisis is still rumbling on, and the outlook for the UK economy is uncertain.However, some companies have fared better than others in the crisis. There’s one FTSE 100 income and growth champion that looks particularly well placed to stage an impressive recovery over the next few years.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…FTSE 100 championShares in insurance giant Admiral (LSE: ADM) have outperformed the wider FTSE 100 this year significantly. The stock is up 3% year-to-date, that’s compared to a -18% return for the FTSE 100.Admiral is one of the few blue-chip companies that has managed to navigate the crisis quite well. The UK’s largest car insurance business has benefited from a reduction in the number of hours car owners are driving. This has resulted in fewer accidents and payouts.At the same time, consumers have continued to shell out for car insurance because it remains a legal requirement in the UK. This combination of a steady income stream and falling costs has helped support the group’s outlook for the year.But it isn’t business as usual for Admiral. The FTSE 100 business has seen a significant drop-off in claims. Therefore, it decided to refund customers to the amount of £25 per vehicle insured a few weeks ago. Management has also committed £80m for other measures to help customers. These include price cuts and help for NHS workers.This might hit the company’s profits for the full year, but they seem to have gone down well with customers, which should help reinforce the firm’s market position.Admiral has also decided to pull its latest special dividend, although it is maintaining its regular payout, despite being urged by regulators to reconsider shareholder payments.The final dividend of 56.3p is a welcome relief for income investors at a time when so many other FTSE 100 dividend champions are cutting their payouts.Growth potentialAdmiral’s dominance of the UK insurance market suggests that this firm can generate healthy returns for investors over the long term.Over the past 10 years, shares in the company have produced a total annual return of 10% on average as the business has gone from strength to strength. At this rate of return, my figures show it would take just 31 years to turn an investment of £50,000 into £1m.I think it’s highly likely that the business can keep up this rate of growth. Admiral has launched new businesses in Spain, Italy, France and the US during the past few years. These firms could help power the group’s growth over the next few years.The FTSE 100 giant has also made substantial investments in its business here in the UK, including the launch of a personal loan business and home/travel insurance.As such, based on its income and growth credentials, I’d buy Admiral as part of a diverse portfolio today.

Boynton Beach Man Accused of Breaking Child’s Arm for Dropping Kitten

first_imgA Boynton Beach man is facing a charge of aggravated child abuse, after authorities say he broke a child’s arm for dropping a kitten.Last Friday, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 30-year-old Brandon Rubin.According to the arrest report, he explained to deputies that the 5-year-old child and his ex-girlfriend’s 4-year-old son were “playing castle” using chairs.The man alleges he heard a loud noise while in another room of the home, and adds that he saw the 5-year-old old on the ground, exclaiming that his arm was hurting.Rubin says he took the child to a pediatrician and then to an emergency room. The boy eventually underwent surgery.The 4-year-old child told investigators that Rubin hurt his friend’s arm after Rubin “hit him really hard,” according to records.The fall, along with subsequent kicks, fractured the child’s arm and left marks “all over his upper body,” sheriff’s office records state.Meanwhile, the 5-year-old stated that Rubin grabbed him by the hand, put him in a headlock, then picked him up and dropped him to the ground, causing him to fall on his face and arm. He then told the boy to say that he fell while “playing castle.”Courtesy: Palm Beach Sheriff’s OfficeRubin’s former girlfriend told investigators that she was in the bedroom that morning, when she heard something hit the ground.She saw Rubin kick the crying 5-year-old. The woman adds that she noticed red marks “all over his upper body,” sheriff’s records state.In addition, Rubin reportedly told the woman that he was upset because the child threw one of Rubin’s two kittens on the ground.For that reason, he picked up the boy and dropped him “because he wanted him (to) see what it was like to be dropped to the ground,” she told authorities.Court records show a history of violent incidents for Brandon Rubin.Another former girlfriend documented numerous incidents of alleged physical abuse, “just in case anything serious happened to the point I disappear or something,” she wrote last year in a petition requesting a protection order against him.
