Regions: US Colorado Casino & games PointsBet nets landmark deal with NCAA’s Colorado Buffaloes 9th September 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle PointsBet has signed a five-year deal to become a betting, gaming and fantasy sports partner of The University of Colorado Buffaloes, becoming the first operator to sign an agreement with a “Power Five” collegiate sports team.The deal will see PointsBet signage appear at football stadium Folsom Field, as well as at the team’s basketball and volleyball stadium the CU Events Center. The operator’s brand will also feature in gameday promotions, television advertising space and on radio broadcasts.The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which governs collegiate athletics, has taken a strong stance against gambling in the past and does not permit gambling advertisements during competitions it organises such as the NCAA Basketball Tournament.However, there is no such prohibition for conference games, other regular season games or games organised by other entities such as college football bowls and playoffs.The University said the deal “provides a financial boost for CU Athletics during a time when athletic department budgets nationwide are stressed by the COVID-19 pandemic”, with other Division I universities cutting back on collegiate sports programmes.Read more on iGB North AmericaImage: ThatCanadian Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Spread Betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address

If I had to pick five UK shares to invest £5,000 in today for the first time, I’d choose carefully. I’d pick companies that have benefited from the pandemic and could benefit from the economy’s reopening. They’d be part of a more extensive portfolio, of course. Indeed, a portfolio of just five stocks and shares would be incredibly risky. A diversified portfolio of at least 30 stocks may be the better option for investors who are comfortable taking the risk of investing in individual stocks and shares. With that in mind, here are five UK shares I’d buy with that investment of £5,000 now as part of a broader investment strategy. 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…UK shares to buyAs noted above, the companies I’m looking at fall into two different buckets. Businesses that have prospered in the pandemic, and those that may see an improvement in fortunes as the economy opens up. Companies that fall into the latter bucket include airlines IAG and easyJet. Typically, I stay away from airline groups. The industry is incredibly challenging to understand, and there are so many risks these businesses face it’s hard to predict what the future holds for them. Risks such as fuel prices, fare wars and labour disputes have all been headwinds to growth in the past. Nevertheless, not many businesses are as well placed to capitalise on the recovery as these two airlines. Both have strong brands and have been able to navigate the pandemic so far. This should help them return to growth when international travel is once again allowed. Reports already suggest that holiday bookings have risen substantially in the past few days. I think this could be an indicator of what’s to come for these UK shares. Slow and steadyAs well as the two airlines outlined above, I would also buy pharmaceutical groups GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca. Despite the challenges these companies face, such as high levels of competition, I’m optimistic about the long-term outlook for these businesses. Healthcare is a growing industry. That’s unlikely to change. As the world’s population continues to grow, it’s highly likely more money will be spent on healthcare year after year. This growth should benefit companies like Glaxo and Astra.Granted, these corporations aren’t going to report the fastest earnings growth around, but as healthcare spending increases, their sales should as well, although this is by no means guaranteed. And I have to be aware that drug development is expensive and success isn’t guaranteed so that’s always a risk.Finally, I would add Legal and General to my basket of UK shares. This pension and asset manager is one of the UK’s largest financial firms. It’s also one of the country’s best dividend stocks. At the time of writing, the shares support a dividend yield of around 6.6%. Unfortunately, this level of income isn’t guaranteed. The company could cut its dividend for many different reasons. Higher costs and increased regulatory scrutiny are just two reasons. Nevertheless, I’m happy to accept these risks in exchange for investing in what I believe to be one of the best ways to play the UK economic recovery. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Who doesn’t love a bargain? While it’s true that the cheapness of many UK shares reflects their poor investment prospects, some of the best stocks to buy today can also be picked up for next to nothing.Here are three low-cost UK shares I’d happily buy for my own Stocks and Shares ISA today.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…A FTSE 100 giantA bright outlook for the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry suggests that Reckitt (LSE: RKT) is a top UK share to buy today. The recently renamed FTSE 100 stock manufactures a broad range of health and hygiene products from lozenges to dishwasher tabs, painkillers to insecticides. And thanks to market-leading labels like Durex, Gaviscon, and Veet, I think Reckitt is one of the best stocks to buy in this arena. Kantar Worldpanel analysts say that the company’s Dettol disinfectant and Harpic bleach were the two fastest-growing FMCG brands in 2020.Today Reckitt trades on an ultra-low forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) multiple of 0.3. This is well inside the widely accepted bargain watermark of 1 and below. And it makes the company a great buy in my opinion, despite the fact it will have to invest plenty on product development and marketing to counter the growing threat of smaller, local FMCG producers.One of the best stocks to buy for growth and incomeUrban Logistics (LSE: SHED) is another UK share I think looks too cheap today. At current prices the business — which provides warehousing and logistics services — changes hands on a forward PEG ratio of 0.5. The property company plays a critical role in the booming e-commerce segment where it supplies space and services to retailers, product manufacturers, and transport companies. It is embarking on ongoing expansion too to make the most of its growing market opportunity. Last month it shelled out £22m to purchase new distribution and warehouse spaces in Warrington and Edinburgh.It’s worth remembering, though, that acquisition involves a certain amount of risk for companies like this, from overpaying for a property to picking one that turns out to be in a poor location. Still, at current prices I think Urban Logistics is worthy of serious consideration. And its enormous 6% prospective dividend yield puts the cherry on the cake.Metals mammothI also think that Sylvania Platinum (LSE: SLP) is one of the best value stocks to buy right now. The metals producer trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of five times and boasts a dividend yield above 5%. There are a few reasons I’m positive about this UK mining share. For example, its product is used in huge quantities in the manufacture of car exhaust systems to clean up dangerous gases. It’s thus poised to gain from growing green legislation as well as a bounceback in global car production. IHS Markit thinks light vehicle output will rebound 14% in 2021. Bear in mind, though, that improving economic conditions and consequently investor confidence could damage safe-haven demand for precious metals. And this could damage Sylvania’s revenues in the process. 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.

Education workers in West Virginia are again in motion for their students and their jobs. In 2018 in all 55 counties in the state they held a historic nine-day walkout, defying state prohibitions on public sector worker organizing.At a Feb. 3 rally by education workers at the West Virginia Capitol building, a sign refers to a 1990 strike by West Virginia teachers with demands similar to those in 2018 and today, including health insurance, wages, and student and classroom needs.When the legislative session began in January, ultra-right state Senate Republicans introduced an “omnibus bill” on education, SB 451, in reprisal for last year’s work stoppage. The bill tied a 5 percent pay raise and $150 million funding for health insurance to union-busting legislation that the 2018 strike had defeated.The bill included reactionary measures: charter schools; vouchers using public school funds for charter schools, private schools, virtual schools and homeschooling; removal of seniority; and elimination of collecting union dues through payroll deduction. It added a section that increased class size and docked pay for anyone participating in future walkouts. The Republican majority-led House of Delegates is now discussing the bill. Education workers across the state carried out a statewide walk-in and various informational pickets on Jan. 9. These actions forced the House to concede the point on payroll dues deduction, agree to a “compromise” by changing the language on seniority, and limit the number of charter schools to two “pilot” programs in Charleston and Huntington, the state’s biggest cities. Currently, no charter schools operate there. On Jan. 11, the speaker of the House, Roger Hanshaw, called for a public hearing on the omnibus bill at 8:00 a.m. Many suspect that Hanshaw, a corporate attorney for the fracking and coal industries, chose the time to keep school workers out. Then evangelical proponents of homeschooling and paid lobbyists for the union-busting American Legislative Exchange Council could dominate the narrative. African-American delegate Sean Hornbuckle’s motion for an additional hearing at 5:30 p.m. carried, so teachers and support staff could present their oral arguments against the bill. School workers attended and spoke out at both hearings.The bill now returns to the Senate, where the reactionary clauses could be introduced again.Unions taking actionIn response to these legislative maneuvers, teachers and school service workers here voted to go on a statewide strike if necessary.State union officials had asked members of the West Virginia Education Association, American Federation of Teachers-West Virginia and West Virginia School Service Personnel Association for an “authorization vote” for an unspecified work action, as they did before last year’s walkout. More than 150 local leaders of all three unions met Feb. 9 to tally the results, which were nearly 90 percent “yes.” Work actions closed schools in all 55 counties in 2018 because superintendents willingly cooperated in cancelling schools. Picketers did not lose pay or benefits. Most school administration and elected board members claimed they supported their faculty and staff. This year, while most county boards of education have declared solidarity by signing resolutions, some are threatening an injunction if the unions call for action. Some board members have publicly supported the reactionary bill, contradicting their position as public education “representatives.” While almost all county superintendents oppose the bill, especially the section on charter schools, a few are exposing their role as bosses by openly denouncing any potential walkout. The capitalist media have also tried to divide the public from school employees by painting the latter as “greedy” and by lying about how privatization destroys public schools.Education workers and supporters are hoping the bill will eventually die. At the same time, union militants know most legislators serve the racist, sexist, anti-LGBTQ, exploiting ruling class. Some individuals most enthusiastic about the bill wear fascistic MAGA hats and use derogatory language about oppressed communities on the chamber floor.Only one thing is certain: The teachers and service workers are willing to walk again if legislators fail to kill their reactionary bill.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
