Enter Your Email Address The London Stock Exchange Group (LSE:LSE) has seen an incredible share price rise over the past 10 years.If you’d invested £1k in LSE shares back in 2010, today that investment would be worth over £11,762. That’s an increase of over 1,000% in a decade as the share price has risen from approximately £6.40 back then, to £75.40 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…Historical rootsAs well as being home to the main UK stock market listings, LSE is a listed company in its own right. It has a £26bn market cap and strong origins in British financial history. The London Stock Exchange can trace its roots back to 1698, but the official London Stock Exchange Group, as discussed here, was created in 2007. That was when the London Stock Exchange merged with Borsa Italiana, the Milan Stock Exchange.LSE is a global financial markets infrastructure business. This means it makes money through a diversified range of business interests. Its capital markets division operates various financial markets. Its FTSE Russell Information Services division has over $16 trillion benchmarked to its indexes and provides data, research, and analytics services. This means LSE has several revenue streams.Riding the wave of good fortune2019 was another good year for LSE shares as they rose over 91% from January to December. This was partly thanks to its bid of £22bn on financial data firm Refinitiv. Both shareholders and the public deemed this a good move, as it could mean elevating LSE to a position to rival Bloomberg. Its share price also spiked when the Hong Kong Stock Exchange attempted to initiate a takeover with a bid of £32bn. Shareholders and the public didn’t welcome the bid, and it was rejected, but the move increased faith and sentiment surrounding the group.Potential hurdles aheadLSE offers a very low dividend yield of less than 1%, and its price-to-earnings ratio has skyrocketed to nearly 55%. These financial metrics don’t make it an appealing buy at the moment.LSE has proven itself a stable and established company, so I don’t think it’s a risky investment. I do, however, think that LSE shares are overpriced at their current level. For another great rise to take place in 2020, I think something pretty significant would have to occur.Brexit uncertainties have depressed the value of UK-listed firms, making the prospect of going public less appealing to private companies. In 2019, only 34 companies applied to be listed in the UK, in line with a marked decline in the proportion of publicly listed companies in major stock markets worldwide. This might be a worrying trend for the future value of LSE shares.Nevertheless, once Brexit has concluded, the British stock market could regain its appeal, meaning these uncertain times could be temporary. As far as FTSE 100 stocks go, the London Stock Exchange Group has a lot to like. I think its low dividend yield is disappointing, but it’s covered by more than twice its earnings per share. This is a good ratio and means it’s unlikely to be at risk of a cut. I would expect a higher yield from a company that has seen such a rising success in its share price. If I owned LSE shares I’d be holding on to them, but at their current price, I don’t consider them a good buy. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you here to this, our first Diocesan RE Conference. And it is amazing to see that so many people have turned up – well over 800 between today and tomorrow. I know that you have come, partly because of the excellent speakers and workshops that we have. But I believe that we have such a crowd because you have a passion for what you in your individual schools.We face many challenges in Catholic education. Some challenges come from those who criticise the existence of faith-based schools and who would prefer that education could be the only area of society where we don’t have choices. Other challenges will arise from the social realities that all schools now face. In the growing absence of a cohesive society that helps to socialise young people, schools are being expected to fill the gap in all sorts of areas of human growth. In that context, the schools can become the battleground for competing value systems.But deep down our main concern is not ourselves and our structures. You have dedicated your lives to education because schools are privileged places where we can influence the lives of precious young people. Like so many of the great founders of religious congregations and local parish communities down through the centuries, in 2019 we wish to be able to offer education for young people so that they can both cope with the tough realities of life, and work to change a dominant culture that crushes too many people all around the world and in this diocese. After all, the big killer in this country is not political violence but rather the hopelessness and meaninglessness that come from the ludicrous message that more freedom alone will make for a happy and wholesome society. Our theme is “The path I walk, Christ walks it”. Our schools do not seek merely to offer a good secular education with a bit of RE fluff on the side. It is over 40 years since a seminal Vatican document stated that the Church establishes her own schools becauseshe considers them as a privileged means of promoting the formation of the whole person, since the school is a centre in which a specific concept of the world, of the human person, and of history is developed and conveyed.That is precisely what Jesus did. He was crucified because He offered a different way of looking at human dignity, community and values – and was seen as being a heretic for doing so. I believe that criticism of Catholic education will continue to grow, not because we are doing a bad job, but because we are doing such a good job of daring to speak a counter-cultural message into our society. We will increasingly be condemned for being heretics if we are crazy enough to speak openly about love, community, forgiveness, virtue, family and responsibility rather than just grades and famous past pupils. Many will shout for our removal if we are brazen enough to speak of a God who gives meaning to our lives whether we are rich or poor, glamourous or frail, hero or villain. Indeed, if we are not a prophetic voice in our society, the path we walk is not the one that Christ walks. As Pope Francis put in some 15 years ago when writing to his own diocese in Buenos Aires, Argentina:“If in our schools we do not develop a different way of being human, a different culture, a different society, we are wasting our time.”Of course, a further challenge for us is that we can’t even be satisfied with speaking with that prophetic voice in our schools. That 1977 document is clear that a Catholic school,is not only a place where one is given a choice of intellectual values, but a place where one has presented an array of values which are actively lived. The school must be a community whose values are communicated through the interpersonal and sincere relationships of its members.Worthy words are not enough unless the school community is explicitly committed to creating an environment where our alternative worldview is made concrete. That applies in how we celebrate achievement, how we support the less gifted, how we deal with disputes.Thus, we set very high standards not just for the academic success of our pupils but also for the sort of mini societies that we model in our school communities. IT equipment can help the acquisition of knowledge and skills – but it takes people to help form idealistic and generous young people. The heart of leadership does not lie in more efficient systems but in the hearts of leaders ‘You have to lead from somewhere deep in your heart.’ And the purpose of that education is that the next generation will be equipped to bring God’s love and mercy into an often harsh and dangerous world. The antagonistic approach of many politicians, the unsustainable depredation of the physical environment and the fragmentation of the human environment – all of these can be changed if young people can be helped by inspiring schools to be architects of a better future and not just prisoners of a painful past. That involves a formation to the responsible use of freedom and a cultivation of the virtues that call people to heroism and not just to the lowest common denominator. It means campaigning for the value of learning for its own sake. It means modelling a way of education where learning is not a commodity to be fought over but a but a journey to be savoured, a journey where none of us is as smart as all of us.Thank you all for coming here. I hope and pray that this conference will be the beginning of a renewed journey in our diocese. The aim is to have another similar event in two years’ time when we commemorate the centenary of Saint Columba’s birth. You are all doing great things in your schools already. That is why our faith-based schools are such educational leaders here and all around the world. Working together we can build on what we have and face whatever challenges the future will throw at us.In a society where too many young people are dying for want of a reason for living, there is a greater need than ever for an education system that offers them not just the means by which to live but a meaning for which to live (Cf Viktor Frankl).God bless the work and thank you for listening.
