And there’s plenty of logic in share prices falling. In short, I think the stock market is being rational because the virus looks set to inflict real economic damage to the businesses behind many shares.Only today, for example, I reported on shipping services provider Clarkson. The chief executive said in today’s full-year results report that the outbreak will “impact” the firm’s first-half performance in 2020. 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…But as so often happens, at times the sell-off is indiscriminate. So now could be a good time to start seeking out those stocks representing businesses that are less susceptible to economic damage inflicted by the virus. Here are two shares I’m watching closely.Power transmissionClarkson has a high degree of cyclicality in its operations but the business of National Grid (LSE: NG) is potentially much steadier. The firm runs the big pipes and power cables that move electricity and gas up, down, and across the UK. It also has a regulated power business in the US.We haven’t had any commentary from the company since the virus outbreak emerged, but my guess is it will have little effect on trading. Unless we see the mass shut-down of industrial facilities and the like, power consumption will likely remain stable. Even those individuals self-isolating will likely still use energy, I reckon.Yet the share price is showing weakness, and it could be a good time to research the stock. The recent 977p throws up a forward-looking earnings multiple around 16 for the trading year to March 2021 and the anticipated dividend yield is just above 5%.Medical devicesOn 20 February, Smith & Nephew’s (LSE: SN) chief executive said in the full-year report that revenue grew by 4.4% during 2019 and trading had been robust across the business.The company operates in a market with steady demand. But it is feasible that orders for its joint implants and other medical hardware could ease off a bit in the short term if the NHS starts delaying non-essential operations because of the COVID-19 outbreak.The shares are about 21% down since the day of the full-year results report (and falling), even though the outlook statement was positive. However, the directors did say the outlook “assumes the situation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak normalises early in Q2.”But at the recent share price of 1,570p, the forward-looking earnings multiple at the moment is just over 17 for 2021 and the anticipated dividend yield is just over 2%. That’s still not cheap, but Smith & Nephew has been expensive for as long as I can remember, probably because of the quality of the underlying business.I’ve had my eye on this stock for ages and sense an opportunity could be developing, so I’m watching it closely now. 2 high-quality FTSE 100 shares I’d buy as the coronavirus sell-off worsens 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.

Will the Tesco share price ever go back to 477p?

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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. In December 2007, the Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price hit a high of 477p. Since then, it’s been largely downhill for long-term investors. Tesco shares fell below 150p in 2016, before beginning a gradual recovery that’s seen the stock reach today’s price of 225p.I’ve been a fan of Tesco shares for some time. I believe the UK’s largest supermarket is now a well-run business that should provide steady returns for shareholders. But can the shares return to the 400p+ level last seen in 2011? I’ve been taking a fresh look.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…£585m cashbackLet’s start with news that suggests Tesco is serious about improving the reputation of its business. The company has announced that it will repay £585m that it’s saved this year as a result of the government’s business rates holiday.This measure was originally intended to support struggling retailers during the pandemic. Supermarkets have come in for some criticism this year. That’s because they’ve enjoyed bumper trading conditions and have continued to pay dividends while still benefiting from the business rates holiday.I reckon this is a smart move by Tesco. Although the company says it’s spent an extra £725m handling the coronavirus pandemic, this rate relief was never intended for companies that were trading strongly. I suspect we’ll see the group’s main rivals follow Tesco’s example over the coming months.Back to growth?Tesco’s share price has risen by 11% since the start of November, when the first Covid-19 vaccine results were announced. The Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine has now been approved for use in the UK. Vaccinations are expected to start this month.I think it’s fair to expect the pandemic to gradually ease next year. I’d guess the extra costs faced by Tesco should also start to reduce. This could put the group in a strong position to return to growth. City analysts covering the stock certainly think so.The latest consensus forecasts for Tesco shares suggest the group’s earnings will rise by 25% in the 2021/22 financial year. Shareholders are expected to enjoy a 15% dividend hike too.These estimates put Tesco’s stock on a forecast price/earnings ratio of 13, with a potential dividend yield of 4%. I think that’s attractive and I’d be happy to buy the shares at this level. But how much further can the stock rise?Will Tesco’s share price return to 477p?Tesco is already the UK’s largest supermarket. It’s also one of the UK’s largest wholesalers. I think there are limits to how big the business can grow, especially as overseas operations have been heavily cut.However, I do expect Tesco to be able to continue delivering steady earnings growth each year. Looking ahead, I’d guess we might see earnings per share rise by around 5% each year.Using this as a guide, I’ve played around with the numbers. My results suggest to me the Tesco share price is unlikely to return to 477p for the foreseeable future. Even on a 10-year view, that seems a little steep to me.I’d be happy to buy Tesco shares for their yield, but I wouldn’t expect fireworks.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA The Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT) share price has crashed in the last few weeks. After rising to around 1,420p in mid-February, SMT has fallen to 1,038p. That represents a fall of around 27%. However, over the last 12 months, it’s still up about 80%.Here, I’m going to look at why the share price has crashed recently. I’m also going to discuss whether I’d buy the trust for my own portfolio now.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…Inflation concerns hit SMT’s share priceThe main reason Scottish Mortgage’s share price has fallen recently is that high-growth stocks (which SMT is full of) have pulled back sharply over the last few weeks due to concerns over inflation.Right now, many large institutional investors are worried that inflation could lead to higher interest rates. As a result, they’ve dumped bonds (which perform poorly when rates are rising) and this has resulted in a sharp rise in long-term bond yields.Higher long-term yields reduce the appeal of owning high-growth stocks because they lower the present value of future earnings. That means many investors have sold growth stocks and has hit the SMT share price.Scottish Mortgage stocks have been hit hardA second reason SMT has fallen is that many of its top holdings have been hit particularly hard in the recent sell-off.Tesla, for example, which was the fourth largest holding in the trust at the end of February, has fallen around 30% since its January high. NIO, which was the fifth largest holding at the end of February, has fallen around 40% since its January high.Given that around 10% of the trust was invested in these two stocks at the end of last month, these pullbacks will have had a big impact on the share price.Other top 20 holdings such as Zalando, Nvidia, and Spotify have also experienced significant share price declines.Would I buy today?After the recent share price fall, I think Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust is worth a closer look. I may buy a few more SMT shares for my own portfolio if the share price weakness persists.Having said that, there’s still risk to the downside, in my view. Inflation concerns could linger for a while. If economic data (such as today’s US non-farm payroll report) is strong in the near term, we may see another leg down for high-growth stocks. This could hit the SMT share price further.Meanwhile, even after the recent pullback in growth stocks, plenty of SMT holdings continue to trade at elevated valuations. NIO, for example, is still valued at around $1.4m per car sold in 2020. This means there’s valuation risk.Overall, I’m bullish on the long-term investment case here, especially after the recent pullback. However, I continue to see SMT as a more speculative holding, due to the fact many of its holdings are high-growth stocks that trade at lofty valuations.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Mike Phillips vs Fabio Semenzato – The battle of the number nines

first_imgWednesday Mar 2, 2011 Mike Phillips vs Fabio Semenzato – The battle of the number nines While Wales came out 24-16 victors over Italy in their Six Nations meeting on the weekend, there was a bit of a sub-plot as the two scrumhalfs on the day had quite the battle throughout the game. Mike Phillips is hardly your traditional number nine when it comes to size and physicality. He’s an angry man that likes to get in the face of the opposition, and perhaps at times would probably be better served focussing his energy on other aspects of his game. That said, he’s quite a unit and is comfortably the biggest scrumhalf playing the game at the highest level currently. Italy’s Fabio Semenzato, well, he isn’t. Just 24 years old and recently capped by his country, the Treviso man is still finding his feet but had an outstanding game against Wales, in fact earning the Man of the Match award despite being on the losing side. “I thought we was fantastic,” said Nick Mallet. “He controlled the game well, got stuck in and was everywhere, for a young guy in just his second game at this level he really stepped up to the plate.” The two players, both in the same position but possessing totally different attributes, had a full go at each other, making for quite a fascinating contest. Phillips got the better of the first collision, ploughing through the smaller Italian, but Semenzato got his own back a little later, possibly not doing as much damage but certainly making the Welshman sit down . Here’s a short clip highlighting those two moments from the match. A word of warning: you will be humming the song to yourself for the next few hours, at least.    Time: 01:51 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The new house was to be light, well ventilated and able to access the various views of the site.Save this picture!The brief required a certain amount of accommodation, and in order to reduce the scale of what could become quite a large building, the strategy was to divide the house into two parts, private (ie family sleeping) areas and then common (living) areas.

The courtyard and pool provide the opportunity for some external, level, sun catching space, protected from the cold winds in winter.

Army equality leads to female fallout

first_img Comments are closed. Female Army recruits are more than twice as likely to suffer a traininginjury now that they are expected to reach the same levels of fitness as men. Research conducted by an Army occupational physician, Lt Col Ian Gemmell,shows that women are up to eight times more likely to be discharged from dutybecause they are injured through training. Although recruits from both sexes have trained together for many years, theArmy had traditionally operated a gender-fair policy, where female recruitswere not expected to attain the same levels of physical fitness as their malecounterparts. However, since 1998 the Army has had a gender-free programme, which meansthat the same physical tests are applied to all soldiers. The policy was introduced after it was discovered that some women wereunable to carry out certain duties after completing training. The research reveals that since the introduction of the new training policy,the number of discharged men remained below 1.5 per cent, but for women thefigures rose from 4.6 per cent to 11.1 per cent. “H&S guidance has been overlooked in the interests of meeting equalopportunity legislation,” said Gemmell. www.rsm.ac.uk Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
