5 renewable energy stocks to buy

first_img Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Greencoat UK Wind and XP Power. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Hundreds of billions of pounds are expected to be spent on renewable energy projects over the next few decades. As such, I’ve been looking for companies in the sector to add to my portfolio to profit from this boom. Here are five renewable energy stocks I would consider buying. 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…Electricity demandI think there are two ways to invest in the renewable energy boom. One strategy is to invest in the companies that develop and produce the materials and equipment required to build electricity networks. BHP is one of the world’s largest copper miners. Therefore, it is one of my favourite companies that fit into this strategy. Estimates suggest the world will have to produce an extra 1m tonnes of copper a year to meet renewable energy demand. Prices could increase 50% from current levels as a result. These forecasts suggest to me that BHP could be a significant player in the renewable energy boom over the next few years. That said, these are just forecasts at this stage. There’s no guarantee the company will see a significant increase in profitability or demand for copper in the years ahead. BHP produces a critical raw material for the renewable energy industry. Meanwhile, XP Power is a leading manufacturer of AC-DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, high voltage and RF & custom power products.These components form vital parts of power networks. I think that as the world moves away from dirty hydrocarbon power towards cleaner renewable energy, demand for these products will grow. That could be great news for XP Power. However, the company’s biggest challenge is competition. Competition in the sector could push down prices and send costs skyrocketing, hurting profitability. Renewable energy power supply and storage There are two prominent companies I’d buy in the renewable power sector. These are Greencoat UK Wind and SSE.The former is a pureplay wind power generator, while the latter is investing billions over the next few years in green energy assets. Both companies have their benefits and drawbacks. Greencoat only owns wind farms, so it does not have much diversification, which could be a significant challenge for the group if there’s a move against wind power. Meanwhile, SSE has a considerable level of debt. This could hurt the enterprise if there’s a significant increase in interest rates over the next few years. Even after taking these risks into account, I’d still buy both firms for my portfolio of renewable energy stocks. Finally, I’d buy the Gresham House Energy Storage Fund Plc for my portfolio. This business is seeking to produce an income stream for its investors by investing in energy storage assets, primarily battery assets across Great Britain.Renewable energy generation can be volatile as it seems as if there will always be a need for storage operators to balance supply and demand in the system. This demand could grow in line with renewable energy generation.Unfortunately, this isn’t the only company in the sector. This competition could hit returns and depress profits for Gresham, limiting the firm’s ability to hit its income goals.  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.

Co-authors sign their new book at the TCU bookstore

first_imgFacebook printCo-authors Anne Gallaher and Amy Howell signed copies of their book “Students in High Gear” Wednesday Nov. 11 at the TCU bookstore.They said they hoped to connect with students and offer advice they wish they had gotten when they were in college.“We’re excited to meet the students in person and hope to be able to encourage them to find the right fit in their career path, reach out to employers like Amy and myself and ask us for coffee,” Gallaher said. “We’re happy to mentor and sponsor and be an advocate for you.”One TCU student took advantage of this opportunity and asked Howell for some tips.“I just love the experience of having authors on campus as a potential access point,” senior acting major Leroy Hood said. “She was even more equipped and ready to answer my questions than I had expected, so it was very nice.”Gallaher and Howell said they hope to help students like Hood learn from their career paths and make good use of the tips they share.“The more that Amy and I read our own book, the more we say, ‘Wow we wish we would have known this three decades ago,’ because we wouldn’t have taken some of the turns that we took,” Gallaher said.Textbook manager Jacob Martin said if he could go back, he thinks a book like “Students in High Gear” would have helped him a lot.“When I was in college I would have probably told myself to study more on the things I may not necessarily have been interested in,” Martin said. “It’s good to have a book that reminds people that at some point, it could be useful to you.”Assistant textbook manager Elliot Brooks said he enjoyed the book signing because he thinks it connected the authors with the community.“I think it’s a visceral experience that really brings people together,” Brooks said.

Shock over former prime minister’s suggestion that journalists acted irresponsibly

first_img AustraliaAsia – Pacific News January 21, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Google experiments drop Australian media from search results Reporters Without Borders today hailed the progress being made in the inquest into the 1975 deaths of cameraman Brian Peters and four other journalists in East Timor but deplored some of the comments made to the coroners court in Sydney yesterday by former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and his defence minister Bill Morrison.“We share the anger expressed by some of the journalists’ close relatives about the inconsistencies in the statements by former senior officials,” the press freedom organisation said. “A commission of enquiry should be created as a matter of urgency to determine the then government’s role in suppressing information about these five deaths.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The fact that a former prime minister has been forced to come and testify is a victory in this quest for truth and justice. But it is outrageous that he implied that the journalists were irresponsible. Those then in office keep trying to conceal their role and to defend Indonesia’s invasion of East Timor. The five journalists clearly saw too much but they were definitely not guilty of anything. Whitlam should be trying to help the coroner to identify those responsible rather than attack the victims.”The 90-year-old Whitlam, who was Labour prime minister in 1975, testified for three hours yesterday to deputy coroner Dorelle Pinch, insisting he only heard about the deaths of the journalists five days later, although the inquest has already established that some of his ministers learned about it the same day. He also said Australia was unaware of Indonesia’s plans to invade East Timor, although many testimonies have indicated otherwise.Whitlam also claimed to have warned one of the journalists, Greg Shackleton, about the dangers of going to East Timor. “I assumed that Greg Shackleton would have taken notice of my warnings,” he said. “I assumed that he would have warned his colleagues. It would have been very irresponsible if he didn’t. Then he would be culpable.” His testimony outraged Shackleton’s widow, Shirley Shackleton, who described it as “bizarre” and “despicable.”Former defence minister Morrison confirmed that he was told of the deaths of the five journalists in the East Timor border town of Balibo the day they occurred. He said he had not warned Whitlam about Indonesia’s invasion plans or told him about the deaths of the journalists, who all worked for Australian TV stations, because the prime minister was embroiled in a political crisis. “I think the prime minister had enough problems on his hands,” he said.Gordon Jockel, the former head of the Joint Intelligence Organisation (JIO), testified to the deputy coroner today that a copy of a message intercept confirming the deaths of the journalists was sent the same day to the prime minister’s office and the defence ministry.The coroner has announced that Australia’s then ambassador to Indonesia, Richard Woolcott, will come and testify in the coming months. Woolcott reportedly warned the Australian government of Indonesia’s invasion plans after meeting with senior Indonesian army officers. Before the deaths of the five journalists.

REGENXBIO Presents Additional Positive Interim Data from Phase I/II Trial of RGX-121 for the…

first_img ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — REGENXBIO Inc. (Nasdaq: RGNX) today announced that additional positive interim data from a total of eight patients in Cohorts 1 and 2 of the ongoing Phase I/II trial of RGX-121 for the treatment of patients up to 5 years old diagnosed with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type II (MPS II), also known as Hunter Syndrome, will be presented at the 17th Annual WORLDSymposium™. “We are pleased to report additional positive data from Cohorts 1 and 2 of our ongoing Phase I/II trial of RGX-121. Data from the eight patients dosed to date continue to show an encouraging safety profile of RGX-121, and highlight the potential of RGX-121 to restore biological enzyme activity and improve outcomes for MPS II patients,” said Steve Pakola, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of REGENXBIO. “We look forward to enrolling patients in Cohort 3 at a higher dose level of RGX-121, which we expect to begin in the first quarter of 2021.” “The consistent biomarker data and neurocognitive development updates from patients in the RGX-121 trial are compelling, especially the data from patients who were not treated with enzyme replacement therapy prior to enrolling in the trial,” said Dr. Roberto Giugliani, Professor, Department of Genetics, UFRGS, Medical Genetics Service, HCPA, Porto Alegre, Brazil. “These patients have demonstrated decreased levels of GAGs in urine, increased I2S enzyme in plasma, and one patient has shown reduced liver and spleen dimensions several months after receiving RGX-121, suggesting that RGX-121 delivered to the CNS has the potential to deliver benefit to patients outside of the CNS. I am encouraged by these results and look forward to further evaluations and advancement of this program.” RGX-121 is an investigational one-time gene therapy designed to deliver the gene that encodes the iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S) enzyme using the AAV9 vector. RGX-121 is administered directly to the central nervous system (CNS). Patients in Cohorts 1 and 2 received doses of RGX-121 at 1.3×1010 genome copies per gram (GC/g) of brain mass and 6.5×1010 GC/g of brain mass, respectively. REGENXBIO expects to begin enrolling patients in Cohort 3 in the first quarter of 2021 at an increased dose of 2.0×1011 GC/g brain mass. The study findings that will be presented at the WORLDSymposium are available under the Presentations & Publications page in the Media section of the company’s website located at www.regenxbio.com. Data Summary and Safety Update As of January 4, 2021, RGX-121 is reported to be well-tolerated with no drug-related serious adverse events (SAEs) in eight patients dosed with RGX-121. Time of post-administration follow-up ranges from four weeks to two years. All four patients that reached 48-weeks of follow-up completed the immunosuppression regimen, per study protocol. Six of the patients were receiving weekly, intravenous enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) at the time of enrollment; two of these patients have since discontinued ERT. CSF Biomarker Data Biomarker data from patients in both cohorts indicate encouraging signals of I2S enzyme activity in the CNS following one-time administration of RGX-121. Heparan sulfate (HS) and D2S6, a component of HS, are glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) that are key biomarkers of I2S enzyme activity and are being measured in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at baseline and after administration of RGX-121. Elevated levels of HS and D2S6 correlate closely with the neuronopathic phenotype of MPS II. HS levels in the first six patients in Cohorts 1 and 2 demonstrated consistent reductions in the CSF up to 2 years following RGX-121 administration, with median reductions from baseline of 30.3% at Week 8 and 35.8% at the last timepoint available for each patient. Similarly, these patients demonstrated consistent reductions of D2S6 up to 2 years following RGX-121 administration, with median reductions from baseline of 44.2% at Week 8 and 39.2% at the last timepoint available for each patient. In addition, I2S enzyme concentration in the CSF, which was undetectable in all patients prior to dosing, was measurable in patients from Cohort 2 after RGX-121 administration. Neurocognitive Development Data Patients in Cohorts 1 and 2 also demonstrated continued neurocognitive development up to two years after RGX-121 administration. Five patients in Cohorts 1 and 2 have reached at least 6 months of follow-up since RGX-121 administration, and of those five patients, three continued to demonstrate neurocognitive development within a normal range, according to the Bayley Scales1. Two patients entered the study with significant delay in neurocognitive development at baseline. After RGX-121 administration, one of these patients demonstrated ongoing neurocognitive development, and both patients continued to acquire expressive and receptive language skills based on the Bayley Scales. Systemic Biomarker Data and Clinical Efficacy Patients in Cohorts 1 and 2 demonstrated evidence of I2S enzyme activity in plasma and urine following administration of RGX-121. Five of six patients demonstrated increases in I2S enzyme concentration levels in plasma over time. Six of eight patients dosed with RGX-121 were receiving ERT at the time of enrollment in the study. All six of these patients have shown decreased total GAG levels in urine up to two years following RGX-121 administration. Notably, two patients in Cohort 2 who were naïve to ERT demonstrated rapid reductions in urine total GAG levels following RGX-121 administration; one of these patients with 24 weeks of follow-up showed significant reductions in liver and spleen volumes. About RGX-121 RGX-121 is a product candidate for the treatment of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type II (MPS II), also known as Hunter Syndrome. RGX-121 is designed to use the AAV9 vector to deliver the human iduronate-2-sulfatase gene (IDS) which encodes the iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S) enzyme to the central nervous system (CNS). Delivery of the IDS gene within cells in the CNS could provide a permanent source of secreted I2S beyond the blood-brain barrier, allowing for long-term cross correction of cells throughout the CNS. RGX-121 has received orphan drug product, rare pediatric disease and Fast Track designations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. About Mucopolysaccharidosis Type II (MPS II) MPS II, or Hunter Syndrome, is a rare, X-linked recessive disease caused by a deficiency in the lysosomal enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S) leading to an accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAG), including heparan sulfate (HS) in tissues which ultimately results in cell, tissue, and organ dysfunction. In severe forms of the disease, early developmental milestones may be met, but developmental delay is readily apparent by 18 to 24 months. Specific treatment to address the neurological manifestations of MPS II and prevent or stabilize cognitive decline remains a significant unmet medical need. Key biomarkers of I2S enzymatic activity in MPS II patients include its substrate heparan sulfate (HS), which has been shown to correlate with neurocognitive manifestations of the disorder.

The Washington Post reports that Jeremy Kirkland, Counsel to the HUD Inspector General’s Office, told a subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee that the Inspector General is meeting congressional lawmakers’ request to investigate whether the Trump administration has slowed the flow of aid to the island.“We are in the process of looking into whether there has been any interference and do plan to report back to Congress on what we find‚” Kirkland said in response to questions from Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California), the committee’s chairwoman, later adding that a team of agents and lawyers is looking into the matter. “I know our folks are out there right now doing that.”Here are some other disaster-related stories that have been breaking this week.Building Better Disaster Relief in Puerto RicoOn Tuesday, the Committee on Financial Services held a hearing entitled “The Administration of Disaster Recovery Funds in the Wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria” in order to discuss the impact of the HUD Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the allocation of funds following recent hurricanes to hit the East Coast, Gulf Coast, and Puerto Rico.In his statement, Secretary Gil Enseñat noted how Puerto Rico has utilized the CDBG funds, discussing the new Homebuyer Assistance Program in Puerto Rico.“We’re creating a Homebuyer Assistance Program by investing $350,000,000 to help citizens purchase homes through a variety of support mechanisms, thereby increasing the level of homeownership in impacted communities and contributing to long-term sustainability and viability of communities across the island,” Enseñat stated.Reevaluating the NFIPLower-income homeowners are especially impacted by flood damage after a major storm. In a hearing entitled “Preparing for the Storm: Reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program,” Mabél Guzmán, speaking on behalf of the National Association of Realtors, noted that many homeowners are underinsured, and coastal areas are not the only areas at risk of flooding.“By every measure, floods are getting worse,” Guzmán said in her statement. She stated that many homeowners are unaware of the risk, and a restructuring of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) may be necessary. Collin O’Mara confirmed Guzmán’s statements, noting that the increasing number of natural disasters requires a different approach.The ongoing flooding happening across the midwest, for example, caused by a deadly combination of heavy rains and large accumulations of snowmelt overwhelming rivers, is likely to continue into May, Realtor.com reports. Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts told reporters on Monday the flooding was “clearly the most widespread disaster we have had in our state’s history.”Realtor.com notes that repair costs associated with flood damage can top $100,000, and the value of homes in flooded areas drops even after the repairs are done.What Can Be Done?The mortgage industry needs to be more proactive in its approach in dealing with the new reality of natural disasters. In an interview with CNBC, Five Star Global President & CEO Ed Delgado said that he did not believe that mortgage market was prepared for the risk of increasingly severe weather.“It could come close to exposing lenders to uncontrollable risk,” Delgado warned.He added: “When you have more than a trillion dollars worth of real estate at risk in coastal markets, it’s about time you start paying attention to that.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Savecenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago March 27, 2019 2,472 Views Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
