Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Can UK share prices continue their recent surge through the roof?I’m not wise enough to forecast whether or not the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 will extend their recent gains, or whether UK share prices will come crashing down again. The fluid coronavirus crisis means that making a solid prediction either way is nigh on impossible.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…Buying wisely after the stock market crashHowever, I am prepared to say that now is a great time to buy UK shares. The FTSE 100 for instance continues to trade at a 15% discount to levels recorded at the start of 2020. There are plenty of quality stocks inside and outside the London Stock Exchange’s blue-chip index that continue to trade more cheaply than they were before 1 January. Consequently a lot of companies are trading on ultra-low valuations.Clearly the Covid-19 crisis has changed the earnings picture for a great many UK shares for the worse. A lot of stocks will suffer serious long-term impacts as a result of the consequent economic downturn. However, many companies still have very bright futures and strong balance sheets to ride out the crisis. This means that eagle-eyed investors can nip in and grab a bargain or two.A top UK share for growth investorsBoohoo Group (LSE: BOO), for instance, is a UK share that offers plenty for growth and value investors to savour. Rampant e-commerce growth means that City analysts reckon its annual earnings will soar 36% this financial period (ending February 2021). And this leaves the retailer trading on a bargain-basement forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 1.The English Covid-19 lockdown might be about to expire. But it’s been reported that the government’s planning for restrictions of some kind to remain in place until next April. This would of course provide a serious medium-term boost to online-only operators like Boohoo. To illustrate the point, the Confederation of British Industry says that 55% of retailers saw the volume of goods shifted via the Internet rise in November amid new lockdown restrictions.Buying the dipEven in the absence of additional Covid-19 restrictions, though, I’m tipping Boohoo to deliver excellent long-term profits growth. And not just because the e-commerce segment is expected to keep expanding at a terrific pace during the 2020s.Its eponymous clothing lines have splendid brand power, boosted by significant investment in marketing in recent years. The acquisitions of PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal in recent years has bolstered the UK share’s clout in this area, too.Predictions that the leisurewear market will keep growing at a terrific rate bode extremely well for Boohoo, too. And like Primark and H&M, the retailer’s also in a strong position to ride roaring demand for low-cost fashion. Boohoo’s shares have fallen slightly in value during 2020. They are down 23% in just a couple of months too. I believe this provides an exceptional buying opportunity for savvy ISA investors.

Panel discusses gender and politics in the Andes

first_imgSubject of the documentaries “Soy Andina” and “Soy Andina II: The Return,” Nelida Silva spoke alongside associate producer of both films, Doris Loayza, and associate political science professor Guillermo Trejo in a panel discussion that examined local politics and gender in rural Peru.Silva said she was born and raised in the rural Andean town of Llamellin, Peru but moved to New York when she was young and lived there for 20 years. In New York, Silva said she worked as an accountant before eventually returning to her hometown.“I decided to back to my village to teach women, so they could earn some money,” she said.Silva said she was proposed as a candidate for mayor of Llamellin, though she initially struggled to decide whether or not to run for office.“I wasn’t sure,” she said. “Candidates are seen as corrupt people.”The documentary “Soy Andina II: The Return” details Silva’s campaign to be mayor. Silva said she ran on a platform of economic development and ultimately lost the election.Traditional gender roles often deter women from becoming involved in politics, but her candidacy demonstrates women’s capabilities, Silva said.“Despite the macho system, which is dominated by males, there is more space for women,” she said. “However, there were more receptive young people — some men, too, but not those who had a [stake] in politics.”Loayza said producing a movie featuring Silva’s political campaign was an arduous task that presented constant challenges, especially in terms of objectivity.“My role was not easy,” Loayza said. “We had to be objective.”Loayza said making two films about the same place brought about some challenges, especially concerning the locals’ perceptions of the documentaries.“The townspeople were developing the idea that the footage from the town was going to be big and disseminated internationally, which made it hard,” she said.Trejo said the film almost never discusses the country of Peru at large because Peruvian politics has a “more local dimension.”“There’s this idea that you leave but you never leave,” he said, “We are living in a reality with the question of universal citizenship. We are not trees. You don’t belong to one place.”According to Trejo, Silva’s gender played an integral role in the success of her campaign.“[Silva] was facing two enemies: political machines and the question of gender,” Trejo said. “It was interesting and infuriating. It is hard for a woman to be heard — not to speak up, because she was, but the audience wasn’t listening. It doesn’t matter if you have the [microphone].”Tags: Documentary, Peru, soy andinalast_img read more
