2 of the best UK shares to buy in early March

first_img The economic outlook remains fraught with danger as the public health emergency rolls on. And this means that UK share investors need to remain extremely careful before adding to their stocks portfolios.I still plan to keep buying British stocks for my Stocks and Shares ISA in March though. I think there are plenty of top-quality stocks that should deliver good returns, despite the threat posed by Covid-19. Here are a couple I’d buy in the coming days.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…#1: The FTSE 100 gambling goliathI think Flutter Entertainment (LSE: FLTR) could be a wise UK share to buy before full-year results come out on Tuesday, March 2. The online gambling industry has been expanding at breakneck pace in recent years. And the sector has had a significant shot in the arm from Covid-19 as gamblers have been stopped from taking a trip to the bookies.Flutter Entertainment’s last trading update certainly impressed me. Then it said that trading across both its sports and gaming divisions had performed better than expected in the third quarter. That followed a prediction-beating performance in the six months to June. I’m expecting trade at the FTSE 100 firm to remain strong too, underpinned by the popularity of its brands like Pokerstars and Paddy Power and its aggressive expansion into the US.It might not all be plain sailing for Flutter Entertainment though. Recent action by the UK Gambling Commission reminds us of the constant threat that regulators pose. As the boffins at Hargreaves Lansdown note, “the spectre of greater regulation in the UK is hanging over the sector… affordability checks for customers who lose £100 or more a month [is] one option on the table.”#2: Another forecast-beating UK shareI believe Forterra (LSE: FORT) might be another top British stock to buy in early March. This small-cap also has shown a habit of beating expectations in recent months. For this reason — and also partly because I already own fellow brickmaker Ibstock in my ISA — I’m excited to see what its full-year results will show on Tuesday, March 9.Back in January Forterra bumped up its full-year guidance again as strong trading conditions beginning in early autumn continued into November and December. Demand for the UK share’s building products suffered earlier in 2020 as Covid-19 caused construction sites to shut down. But the recovery since lockdowns were eased illustrates how strong underlying demand for bricks are. I expect sales of Forterra’s products to remain strong, too, as building rates ratchet up to combat Britain’s housing crunch.I think Forterra is a very-attractive buy right now. But it still faces significant risks in the short-to-medium term. As it mentioned last month, changes to the Help to Buy purchase incentive scheme might damage homebuyer demand going forwards and by extension sales of its bricks. The planned termination of the Stamp Duty holiday next month could dent the housing market as well. Even if it’s extended for a few months as rumoured, it will eventually end, so a reckoning for the sector could still come this year.

Wallabies hold off Welsh fightback to claim win in Brisbane

first_imgMonday Jun 11, 2012 Wallabies hold off Welsh fightback to claim win in Brisbane Wales turned around a 20-6 deficit to trail 20-19 at one stage, but ultimately it was the Wallabies that claimed a fairly comfortable 27-19 victory at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday. The two sides meet again in Melbourne for the second test. Will Genia stamped his authority on the game with one of the better halfback performances you’re likely to see, including a brilliant solo effort. He controlled maters from the base with a high tempo performance, something Wales are aiming to prevent in the next two Tests. “If they put all their focus on Will, it will tighten their line and make it easier for us to run into holes,” said his Reds teammate Anthony Faingaa, who also praised wing Digby Ioane, who carried the ball 13 times and helped Genia dummy the Welsh defence for his try.“If Digby doesn’t make that run, Will doesn’t score that try,” he said.Nathan Sharpe, having played 11 times against Wales, says that they will come back stronger, and should not be taken lightly. “This is the best Welsh team I’ve ever played against,” he said.“We’re expecting big things from them again this weekend and they will have learned a lot from Saturday and we expect them to try to remedy that. The game will have a completely different focus and a completely different energy about it.Wales will have the services of Melbourne Rebels forward Gareth Delve at their disposal as he was called up after number eight Toby Faletau broke his hand. He’ll play in the game against the Brumbies tomorrow, and aim to get a Test call up for Saturday.You can also view the full match post hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

MetLife to Provide Annuity Benefits to 13,500 Lockheed Martin Retirees and Beneficiaries

first_img MetLife to Provide Annuity Benefits to 13,500 Lockheed Martin Retirees and Beneficiaries Local NewsBusiness Facebook NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 26, 2021– MetLife, Inc. announced today that its subsidiary, Metropolitan Tower Life Insurance Company, has entered into an agreement with Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT) to provide annuity benefits to approximately 13,500 retirees and beneficiaries in Lockheed Martin’s defined benefit (DB) pension plans, representing pension obligations of approximately $1.4 billion. Lockheed Martin, through its master retirement trust, purchased a group annuity contract from Metropolitan Tower Life Insurance Company in December 2020. The transaction will not change the amount or timing of the monthly pension benefit received by the corporation’s retirees and beneficiaries. Metropolitan Tower Life Insurance Company, rather than Lockheed Martin, will be responsible for making these monthly payments. No action is needed by retirees or beneficiaries. Lockheed Martin and MetLife will provide details to retired participants and beneficiaries whose ongoing payments will be made by Metropolitan Tower Life Insurance Company. This is the second pension risk transfer transaction Lockheed Martin has signed with MetLife. In 2019, MetLife assumed approximately $1.9 billion in pension obligations for approximately 20,000 of the company’s retirees and their beneficiaries. “With this transaction we are looking forward to continuing our work with Lockheed Martin to provide guaranteed lifetime income for their retirees as well as benefits to the retirees’ spouses and beneficiaries,” said Graham Cox, executive vice president and head of Retirement & Income Solutions at MetLife. “MetLife is a leading pension risk transfer (PRT) provider. By taking on these pension obligations, we will help Lockheed Martin provide its retirees and beneficiaries with financial security.” The PRT market rebounded in the second half of 2020 and MetLife expects to see this trend continue in 2021. MetLife’s 2020 Pension Risk Transfer Poll found that while most plan sponsors reported that their companies have been broadly impacted by COVID-19, 81% said the pandemic would neither decrease the likelihood of transacting nor cause a delay in transacting. MetLife, through Metropolitan Life Insurance Company and Metropolitan Tower Life Insurance Company, is a market leader in the pension risk transfer industry, managing benefit payments of approximately $3 billion a year for about 720,000 annuitants. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company issued its first group annuity contract in 1921 to fund a defined benefit plan. MetLife’s Retirement & Income Solutions Customer Solutions Center team has been recognized by J.D. Power for providing “An Outstanding Customer Service Experience” for the Live Phone Channel. MetLife’s Retirement & Income Solutions (RIS) business includes U.S. Pensions, Institutional Income Annuities, and Structured Settlements in addition to other institutional products.
