Hold them for the long term and you could expect healthy returns as markets recover. Here are two I particularly like the look of.BAE SystemsBAE Systems (LSE: BA) is a British multinational defence, security and aerospace company. It operates worldwide. Its businesses cover everything from electronic warfare systems to intelligence gathering to armoured vehicles.In recently released preliminary results, the company reported a good overall performance for 2019. Sales were up around 9%, with net debt reduced. This allowed BAE to lift its dividend by 4.5%, with the dividend per share increasing by 1p over last year.I see a positive outlook for the business. Last year, 43% of the company’s sales were to the US, which is a huge market when it comes to defence and security. What’s more, the company is in the process of carrying out two proposed acquisitions in the US.I’m particularly bullish when it comes to this stock and see it as well-placed for continued growth. In an ever-changing defence and security market that can be expected to experience increased demand over the coming years, BAE has a very strong position.The company mixes innovation with a business strategy that remains consistent and well-proven. Overall, it’s a quality stock that’s a strong buy for me, especially in light of a reduced price offered by the market crash.PrudentialInternational financial services company Prudential (LSE: PRU) offers a range of asset management services around the world. Such services and products include life insurance, pensions and annuities and investment schemes.In its recent full-year results report, the company highlighted its success in the Asian market, where it says it’s now the leading Asian mutual fund manager. It also said new business profit increased by 2% with adjusted operating profit up by 14%.A strong performance in volatile and uncertain times is a strong pull-factor for investors. I particularly like that the company has consistently implemented strong operational delivery, which has been a catalyst for growth so far.Ultimately, I think Prudential is a quality company that’s well-positioned to continue to deliver long-term profitable growth. In light of current market conditions and a price-to-earnings ratio of 7.3, I think there’s significant value to be had.What’s more, a resilient balance sheet and appropriate capital management mean that the market crash shouldn’t damage its finances too heavily. 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.

first_img Help by sharing this information March 12, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Malaysia News January 29, 2021 Find out more News For the time-being, there is no network censorship on the Malaysian agenda, but bloggers and online journalists are being harassed and the authorities are producing a proliferation of statements about their distrust of the new media.Credibility : The new media’s prerogativeNews websites and blogs have flourished as an alternative to the state-controlled traditional media. The new media have acquired genuine credibility and, keeping pace with their growth, a high-quality online journalism broaching important subjects has emerged on such sites as NutGraph, Malaysian Insider and Malaysiakini and on blogs like Articulations, Zorro Unmasked, People’s Parliament and Malaysia Today.The opposition was quick to permeate the new media, but the government and ruling party also followed the movement. The Barisan Nasional Party has organized a special unit responsible for disseminating ideas on the Net. The Internet created new opportunities for all political actors, and not just for parties. By allowing them to reach a heterogeneous audience, it is challenging traditional censorship barriers. However, the authorities have been producing an increasing number of statements calling into question the new media’s legitimacy.Harassed bloggers and websitesThe regime is, indeed, showing a certain degree of exasperation toward bloggers and independent websites. It sometimes yields to the temptation of prosecuting them by using the legal weapons at its disposal. Some twenty-odd laws can be deployed to censor the media and the Internet. Most often enforced against netizens is the Internal Security Act (ISA), which allows them to keep an individual in custody for two years without a trial, the 1984 Press Law and publications, the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Act of 1998, and the Sedition Act. The latter penalizes any expression likely to incite hatred or disaffection with regard to Malaysian authorities or between “races” and social classes, changing the established order, or challenging any sovereign right or privilege. Any person found guilty faces a potential prison term of up to five years and a fine of MYR 5,000 (about USD 1,475).The Malaysiakini site is being investigated by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission for posting videos that authorities deemed shocking, but which, according to the site’s chief editor, merely constituted coverage of events of general public interest, in this case demonstrations. Malaysiakini is extremely popular, with 37 million pages seen per month by 1.6 million single visitors.Blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin, better known by his acronym RPK, who is the director of the news site Malaysia Today, is the victim of a genuine judicial harassment campaign. He is the pet peeve of the authorities, whose acts of corruption he has denounced numerous times. He stands accused of sedition after having implied that the Prime Minister and his wife might be involved in the murder of a Mongolian interpreter within the scope of an explosive case concerning politics and arms sales. The authorities are now threatening to withdraw his Malaysian citizenship and to issue an international arrest warrant against him. In November 2009, the court had “suspended” his trial by granting him a discharge because he could not be located. But the accusations remain intact and he can be arrested again at any time.Another blogger, Khairul Nizam Abdul Ghani, was accused of insulting the monarchy and should be tried by the end of March 2010. This freelance computer technician had posted on his blog, www.adukataruna.blogspot.com, critical comments about Sultan Iskandar Ismail of the state of Johor, who died this past January. He could be given a sentence of up to one year and pay a fine, even though he apologized and withdrew the incriminating article from his blog.In March 2009, eight Internet users were prosecuted for insulting the Sultan of the state of Perak, which was undergoing a political crisis. One of them, Internet user Azrin Mohd Zain, was sentenced to pay a fine of MYR 10,000 (about USD 2,950) by virtue of the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Act of 1998. The seven others are awaiting trial.Lawyer P. Uthayakumar, and a member of the Hindu Rights Action Force (HRAF), detained since December 2007 in the name of the Internal Security Act (ISA), was released in May 2009. The authorities accused him of having published on his Internet website (http://www.policewatchmalaysia.com), a letter to the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, asking him to support the adoption of a UN Security Council resolution condemning the “atrocities and persecutions” perpetrated by the Malaysian government against the Hindu minority and to refer the case for trial to the International Criminal Court.No censorship on the agenda?The Malaysian Minister of Culture and Communication’s proposal to install a Web filtering software system was rejected by the government in August 2009 after demonstrations protesting against this initiative. The Minister considered using, for example, the “Green Dam filtering software program” used by the Chinese, under the pretext that it was necessary to “maintain racial harmony in a multicultural nation.”In the last few months, the authorities have reiterated the promise made in 1996, during the launching of the Multimedia Super Corridor – a special economic and technological zone – not to censor the Internet. Notably in a letter sent to Reporters Without Borders in June 2009, they further explained that censorship was not on the table. But at the same time they warned citizens about engaging in “immoral online activities,” they also advised them to allow themselves to be “guided by their cultural and moral values” in cyberspace. to go further Organisation MalaysiaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts MalaysiaAsia – Pacific center_img News Follow the news on Malaysia March 17, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News February 22, 2021 Find out more New Malaysian ordinance threatens very concept of truth Malaysian cartoonist Zunar facing possible sedition charge again Record fine for Malaysian news site over readers’ commentslast_img read more
