In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Since the beginning of the year, the BP (LSE: BP) share price has risen over 20%. This makes a change from 2020, when the stock fell almost 50%. So what has changed?Well, the environment isn’t not all doom and gloom these days. As the global economy starts to recover, demand for oil is expected to pick up. After all, the world still runs on the stuff. Of course, this is good news for the BP share price and hence a big reason for why the stock has been rising.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…But I think there are other reasons why the shares have rallied. Last week, the oil giant released its first-quarter results, which I’ll go into in some detail shortly. They highlighted that the company is taking the right steps. I recently commented on the shares and would still buy the stock in my portfolio today.The resultsIn a nutshell, BP’s results for the first three months of 2021 were generally good. CEO Bernard Looney commented that “this quarter demonstrates what we mean by performing while transforming”. And I completely agree with his statement.Last year was horrible for the oil giant, but it seems that things are recovering. Reported profit for Q1 2021 was $4.7bn, compared to $1.4bn for the fourth quarter 2020.I was also impressed by the $11bn of cash inflow it generated in the first three months of the year. BP has a good history of paying a dividend and so a strong cash flow means that the income payments are likely to stay. Of course, there is no guarantee of this.Net debtI think its net debt reduction has been driving the BP share price. The oil giant set a target of reducing this to $35bn. It’s encouraging to see that this goal has been met a year early. In fact, it now stands at $33.3bn.So how has BP managed to reduced it liabilities so quickly? Well, it has been selling off assets. Divestment and other proceeds amounted to $4.8bn in the quarter, including $2.4bn from the divestment of a 20% stake in Oman Block 61.But I think it’s worth mentioning that this is a short-term strategy. The company can only get so far by selling its assets, until it runs out. The idea here is to get the net debt into a manageable position, which should boost the BP share price in the long term.Share buybacksWhat has also helped the stock rise is the announcement of $500m in share buybacks, due to commence in the second quarter of 2021. In fact, it intends to “distribute 60% of surplus cash flow for 2021 through share buybacks, with the remaining 40% being used to further strengthen the balance sheet”. I like that the board is shareholder-friendly. And I reckon the 60/40 split is a sensible and strategic approach.RisksThere are risks, of course. The stock is linked to the oil price. So any volatility is likely to impact the shares. Any further Covid-19 setbacks could hinder revenue, profitability and dividends.BP is also transitioning to being a renewable energy player, but this will take time and cost money. That could weigh on the BP share price.But after its recent quarterly results, I remain confident that it’s on the right path. The shares have been rising recently and I expect this to continue. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Star player: ‘U.S. soccer is a rich white-kid sport’

first_imgHope Solo (second from left) celebrates a victory with teammates on the U.S. women’s national soccer team.Hope Solo is a former goalkeeper for the U.S. women’s national soccer team, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and a World Cup soccer champion. Solo is also white. So when she spoke, at a Hashtags sports conference in New York City on June 28, on why the U.S. soccer team did not qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, her answer shocked many.She stated that U.S. soccer is a “rich, white-kid sport.” Then she explained: “We have alienated the Hispanic communities. We have alienated our Black communities. We have alienated the underrepresented communities, even rural communities. … No wonder why we are not qualifying for the World Cup when we have alienated a huge population of really talented youth soccer players.” ( is not the first time that Solo has spoken about inequality in her sport. When she attempted a bid for the presidency of the United States Soccer Federation earlier this year, Solo accused the eventual winner of the election, Carlos Cordeiro, of not promoting pay parity between female and male soccer players.She said, “He was part of a federation that generated millions of dollars off the backs of its players, and much of it off the back of its women’s players, who have been the economic engine of this federation for years, yet [we were] treated like second-class citizens.” ( she and her teammates brought a wage discrimination lawsuit to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against U.S. Soccer two years ago, Solo said of the women’s team, “We are the best in the world, have three World Cup championships, four Olympic championships.” Yet, the men “get paid more to just show up than we get paid to win major championships.” (The Nation, April 5, 2016)Solo’s recent comments struck a nerve by exposing the racist, elitist nature of U.S. soccer. Within the U.S., discrimination rules in the world’s most popular sport, while winning teams from around the world are comprised of talented players from so many oppressed countries and nations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

‘Victor’s not a homicide number’: Councilwoman’s tearful speech after son, a USC student, slain near campus

first_imgLynette Gibson McElhaney(LOS ANGELES) — Days after University of Southern California student Victor McElhaney was gunned down, his mother, an Oakland city councilmember, was overcome with emotion as she spoke at the university.“Victor’s not a homicide number or statistic or just another black boy gunned down in South Central Los Angeles,” Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney said of her slain 21-year-old son at a Tuesday news conference. “I want you all to know that Victor came into the world a drummer. He was drumming from the moment he could sit up.”“He’s played for weddings and funerals and christenings and bat mitzvahs,” McElhaney said. “Can you imagine, African drums at a bat mitzvah? But that’s what he did. And he believed music could heal the world.”Victor McElhaney, a senior at USC’s Thornton School of Music, was killed early Sunday morning in a robbery attempt near the Los Angeles campus.“My baby was amazing. Every mother says that, but it was really true,” his grieving mother said. “He came into the world early … three pounds and 14 ounces of inquisitive power.”Aaron Serfaty, a faculty member at USC’s Thornton School of Music, couldn’t hold back the tears as he spoke about his slain student.“He was a brilliant musician first and a drummer second. But most of all, he was an amazing human being, and I thank you both for bringing him into this world,” Serfaty said.“I can’t look at you — he looked exactly like you,” Serfaty said to Victor McElhaney’s parents, before breaking down in tears and joining them in a long, tearful embrace.John Thomas, chief of USC’s department of public safety, added at the news conference, “Victor could not be contained by the walls of the University of Southern California. Just as he was a son of Oakland, he came down here and he became a son of my neighborhood — South Central Los Angeles. He was out in the community, he was doing things, he was involved, he was engaged.”“We stand with you,” Ainsley Carry, USC vice president for student affairs, said to his family and friends at Tuesday’s news conference. “Every student that joins this family becomes a member of the Trojan family. And the loss of a single student creates a ripple effect through this entire community.”“Our hearts are heavy and burdened today,” Carry said, as Victor McElhaney’s mother wept.“Victor was a welcome for presence in our Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs. It was his home away from home,” Carry said. “This is where he would share his musical gifts and talents … this is also where, like a magnet, people were drawn to him.”Though McElhaney is a councilmember, she stressed, “Victor made a name in his own right. I was Victor’s mom. Victor was not Lynette’s son.”“I’m crying, but really I’m crying for all of those who never got to meet him and know him and be touched by him,” she said.Victor McElhaney’s father, Clarence McElhaney, urged anyone with information about his son’s slaying to come forward.“Silence is worse than the actual bullet that killed my son,” he said, choking back tears. “If you know something, say something to the police.”Victor McElhaney and his friends had left a market early Sunday when they were confronted by several people, one of whom opened fire, said LAPD Capt. Billy Hayes.Witnesses said the suspects were possibly three to four Hispanic men in their 20s, two of whom were armed, Hayes said. The suspects fled in a dark blue or gray sedan, Hayes said.“We lost an angel,” Regina Scott, deputy chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, said Tuesday. “We have all resources available to help solve this crime.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
