The Department of Justice (DoJ) has claimed that its revised stance on the 1961 Wire Act did not address the legality of interstate and online lotteries, with a review into the matter ongoing.The claim, supported by a memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, suggests that the DoJ is still examining whether state lottery operations should fall under the Wire Act’s jurisdiction. As a result, the Department claims that there are no grounds for a legal challenge, which should therefore be dismissed. Rostenstein’s memo states that Department of Justice attorneys should refrain from enforcing the revised Wire Act stance, which states that the legislation applies to all forms of gambling and not just sports betting, on state lotteries until the review is concluded.Should the DoJ rule that interstate lottery operations come under the jurisdiction of the Wire Act, Rosenstein says state lotteries will be given a 90-day window in which to ensure their operations are compliant with federal law.The filing was made as part of the ongoing legal challenge launched in New Hampshire on behalf of the state lottery corporation. It addressed the New Hampshire Lottery Corporation’s memorandum of law objecting to the DoJ’s motion to dismiss the case, filed on March 25.In its objection, the lottery says the DoJ “studiously ignored” the question of whether the new Wire Act opinion extends to state lotteries in its motion to dismiss. However the Department argues that the lottery cannot force it to decide whether or not it should adopt an enforcement position through legal action.It argues that as a result of Rosenstein’s memo, there is no credible threat of prosecution for the state lottery, and as a result the case should be dismissed for a lack of standing.The New Hampshire Lottery maintains that the revised opinion could force it to withdraw certain games, resulting in the state losing around $90m a year in revenue. A ban on interstate gambling transmissions, meanwhile could cut sales by around 25% per year, with a ban on multi-state games such as Powerball likely to reduce lottery revenue by up to $80m (£61.2m/€70.9m) per annum.

The spectre of a shocking global recession is turbocharging demand for safe-haven shares. And I consider platinum producer Tharisa (LSE: THS) to be one such lifeboat for ISA investors to buy in these turbulent times.A backdrop of severe macroeconomic and geopolitical stress is powering gold prices to fresh landmark highs. But it’s not the only ‘investment metal’ which is enjoying a demand surge from scared investors.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…Data just released from the World Platinum Investment Council (WPIC) illustrates this point perfectly. Demand for platinum bars and coins totalled 312,000 ounces between January and March as Covid-19 fears grew. This was up 300% from the quarterly norm of 70,000 ounces recorded in 2019. And the body expects safe-haven consumption of the metal to remain strong throughout 2020. It predicts that bar and coin demand will balloon 115% to 605,000 ounces this year.The green factorNow the WPIC notes that physical platinum demand from the auto sector slumped in quarter one because of plant closures. This dropped 17% year on year to 132,000 ounces. It expects the market to recover during the rest of the year, though, helped by new emissions regulations that are being rolled out in China and India in 2020. The metal is implanted in catalytic converters to reduce carbon production.The drive to cut car fumes shouldn’t just increase platinum demand in the near term, however. Plans to reduce global greenhouse gases over the next decade has accelerated in all four corners of the globe in recent years. Some experts believe that the coronavirus outbreak will ramp up legislative action in the future, too, given the link between high infection rates and territories with elevated pollution levels.It looks like the likes of Tharisa can expect both investment and industrial demand for its mined material to remain robust during the 2030s, then. But this isn’t the only reason to buy into the South African mining giant today. The brilliant progress the safe haven is making on the production front provides another sound reason to buy.Buy it for the global recessionIn half-year financials last week Tharisa said that it mined 2.3m tonnes of reef during the first quarter. This was up 2.3% from the same 2019 period.On the flip side, production of platinum group metals (or PGMs) dipped 1.6% year on year, to 66,500 ounces. This reversal was a reflection of Covid-19-related plant shuttering though. In fact, output from the Tharisa mine remains solid and output from the Genesis and Voyager independent processing plants exceeded nameplate capacity prior to the lockdown.Tharisa is clearly in great shape, then. But its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 15 times fails to reflect its bright profits outlook for the new decade. But this undemanding multiple is not the only reason why the business isn’t a brilliantly valued safe haven. Right now it also sports an inflation-crushing 3.5% dividend yield for 2020.

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

See all posts by Manika Premsingh Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares With a price to earnings (P/E) ratio of 76.5 times, FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals biggie AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) is among the most expensive stocks in the set. But the AstraZeneca share price has always been high. Let me go back in time. This time last year, AZN was my top share for the month. Even then, one of its standout aspects was how high its P/E ratio was compared to peers.The irony, however, is this. At the time, its P/E ratio was 45 times. That appears to be very reasonable compared to what it is now! That AZN’s share price has shown no persistent correction since – it has, in fact, continued on an upward trajectory – suggests that investors value it highly. There are several reasons for this.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…Safe stock in recessionary timesThe foremost is the fact that we are sitting in the midst of deep economic recession. It’s only a matter of time before it shows up in the numbers. It’s natural for investors to flock towards ‘safer’ stocks during times of such uncertainty. Defensives, as they are known, see limited demand reduction during such times, such is the nature of their products or services. One example is the pharmaceuticals and healthcare sector. It was obvious then, that the AZN share price was likely to benefit as the stock market crash ensued.However, the latest market crash was particularly tilted towards the pharmaceutical sector. Driven as it was but the coronavirus crisis, companies whose products might help in the battle against the virus had an extra boost. AZN has been in the thick of these efforts, working on a vaccine.Strong earningsIt follows that AZN’s financials haven’t been impacted by the crisis. In fact it has continued to perform well, as evident from its quarterly results, which were released a month ago. The company also expects continued good performance going forward. This optimism stands out for two reasons. First, because it is optimistic. But also because it comes at a time of great uncertainty about the economic future. Most other FTSE 100 firms are withdrawing their previously stated earnings’ outlooks and not making any forward-looking statements. AstraZeneca’s calm assurance has been reflected in its share price.What’s next for the AstraZeneca share price?As an interested investor, I’m waiting for just one more dip in the AZN share price. However, I doubt if it will happen any time soon. I will consider buying some shares now, and add to that position as and when there’s an opportunity to buy at lower share prices. The long-term share price chart gives me some solace – it’s broadly upward sloping. In other words, a long-term investor with at least a three- to five-year horizon should stand to benefit. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The AstraZeneca share price is among the most expensive FTSE 100 stocks.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridText description provided by the architects. The four-season family cabin by architect Ian MacDonald is a deeply thoughtful response to the cultural heritage landscape of Go Home Bay, an enclave of Ontario’s Georgian Bay archipelago. The area was once immortalized by the Group of Seven and abounds with natural beauty. Rocky islands are topped by scraggly white pines shaped by the west winds. However, the landscape is also increasingly vulnerable to development. Over-scaled structures have become evermore commonplace, dominating the context, dwarfing the surroundings and spoiling one’s experience of the natural realm.Save this picture!Floor PlanThis cabin is an important, positive alternative to the prevailing trends. It uses contemporary language while embodying the distinguishing and modest characteristics of the vernacular cottages that have unobtrusively dotted the area since the 1890s. The amber-hued interiors, framed in rough-sawn fir, are efficient, compact and distilled down to the necessary essentials for peaceful weekends outside of the city. The simplicity belies a profound connection to the surrounding nature that is at once strong and sensitive, stirring and peaceful.Save this picture!MacDonald strategically sited the structure to respect the beautiful shoreline, and to create a sense of anticipation for visitors. When visitors approach by water (it is 16-miles from the nearest dock, with no in-road access), the property’s mature trees fragment their views of the low-slung volume. It is only as visitors climb up from the dock through a juniper meadow, surrounded by tall white pines, that they see the cottage clearly as a charcoal-coloured cedar shingle box. The lightness on the land is instantly evident in the construction: MacDonald cantilevered the form off concrete piers so that it floats over a whaleback outcropping of granite.Save this picture!ElevationSave this picture!ElevationHe carefully sequenced interior spaces to underscore a rich connection to the landscape. Entering into a simple vestibule from the east, visitors’ views are largely withheld to delay and therefore intensify their effect. Visitors then pass into the long kitchen, which doubles as a corridor along the back of the cabin, connecting the principal areas and ending in a cozy sitting cove complete with a woodstove and views to the extensive forest behind. This space serves as counterpoint to the big water views in the adjacent main room where some 42 linear feet of windows look west toward the open Go Home Bay channel. Here, the ground plane drops out of view, and the short middle ground is lost. This obscuring engages the visitor’s imagination, resulting in a more grand perception of the scale of the landscape, and defining one’s primary memory of the place.Save this picture!Sustainable features lighten the building’s footprint. The main construction materials were coordinated on a single barge to reduce the embodied energy of transportation. Furthermore, MacDonald drew on his knowledge of the site’s weather patterns — the inner bay locale can be stiflingly hot in the summer due to a lack of airflow — to improve passive thermal comfort. The irrigated green roof ameliorates cooling, sunshades integrated with the envelope reduce heat gain, and the main space, capped by operable clerestories, transforms into a screened-in porch with lift and slide doors to improve cross ventilation. This porosity in the architecture helps the inhabitants mark the changes in the days, the seasons and the climate, ultimately forging a more profound connection to the land.
