3 value stocks I’d buy after recent declines

first_img As stock markets have plunged, a handful of high-quality businesses have suddenly become value stocks.As such, now could be an excellent time for long-term investors to snap up some shares in these highly attractive operations at discount prices.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…Value stocks on offerDrax Group (LSE: DRX) is currently one of the market’s most unloved value stocks. Shares in the power plant operator are dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 6. The stock also commands a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 0.5.Value stocks are usually defined as those businesses trading at a discount to book value. It looks as if Drax falls into this bracket.The question is, does the company deserve this valuation?It does not seem as if it does. Even in the worst-case economic scenario, the UK will still need electricity, and Drax is one of the country’s largest power plant operators. This suggests that the business will continue to earn revenues no matter how bad the coronavirus outbreak becomes.On top of the stock’s attractive valuation, the company also offers investors a dividend yield of 8.3%. Therefore, investors will be paid to wait for market confidence to return and the stock to recover.With electricity demand only growing across the UK, investors might not have to wait for long.Pubic transportNational Express (LSE: NEX) is one of the most efficient public transport operators in Europe and North America. Last year the business reported an operating profit margin of 8.8% compared to the sector average of 7.8%.Unfortunately, it’s highly likely that the coronavirus outbreak will hurt the company’s operations. However, public transport is an essential service for many people, and demand is only growing as more and more consumers ditch private cars over environmental concerns.As such, National Express looks well-positioned to stage a strong recovery when the outbreak dies down, and economic activity returns to normal.Today investors can buy into this recovery play for just 9.2 times forward earnings. The stock also offers a dividend yield of 5.2%. The payout is covered twice by earnings per share, so it looks quite safe for the time being.These metrics, and National Express’s position in the public transport industry, make it one of the most attractive value stocks on the market today.Online deliveryHigh street sales may suffer as consumers stay home to avoid the virus outbreak, but initial indications suggest online sales could grow. Next (LSE: NXT) could benefit from this trend.While the company does still have a significant high street presence, around half of the group’s sales now come from its online business.What’s more, this business is highly cash generative. Management has been returning a large chunk of this cash to investors with dividends and share buybacks.Not only does Next reward its shareholders more than many of its peers, but the company’s healthy profit margins and cash flows means the firm is well-positioned to weather the storm.Many of its peers might not be so lucky. That could help the company come out on top when the economy recovers. Next could use its size and scale to grab market share from struggling smaller peers.Therefore, it could be worth buying a share of this high-quality business after recent declines. 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.

They may feel that risks could continue to negatively impact on the index’s performance, and that other assets such as Bitcoin may be a better means of generating high returns.However, the past performance of the stock market suggests that now could be an opportune moment to buy high-quality businesses while they offer low valuations. They could produce sound recoveries that increase your chances of building a £1m portfolio in the coming years.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…Time to buy Bitcoin?Bitcoin’s outperformance of the FTSE 100 in recent months may convince some investors that the virtual currency now offers a superior investment outlook. While it could continue to outperform the stock market in the coming months, it faces substantial risks over the long run that may impact negatively on its price level.For example, regulatory risks could cause investor sentiment towards the cryptocurrency to decline. Some regulators have been negative about the cryptocurrency and have suggested that it may need to be more closely monitored in future. This could inhibit its capacity to replace traditional currency, and could lead to doubts about its role in the world economy over the long run.Furthermore, there are a variety of other virtual currencies that may become more popular than Bitcoin. Since their prices are based on investor sentiment, rather than fundamentals, a popularity contest may mean that the prices of cryptocurrencies are highly volatile as investor sentiment ebbs and flows.FTSE 100 potentialThe FTSE 100 may not have an especially positive near-term outlook. Risks such as a global economic slowdown and the potential for a second wave of coronavirus may hold back its performance.However, its track record shows that buying stocks when they face significant risks has been a sound overall strategy. It enables investors to purchase companies when they offer wide margins of safety, which can translate into high returns in the long run.By focusing your capital on businesses with competitive advantages, sound finances and strategies that can help them to overcome the risks they face, it is possible to take advantage of the stock market’s likely long-term recovery. This may seem unlikely at the present time and a sustained bull market has often been viewed as doubtful by investors during recessions and market downturns. However, the stock market has always recovered to post new record highs.A buy-and-hold strategyTherefore, using a buy-and-hold strategy to benefit from the FTSE 100’s recovery potential could be a shrewd move. It may catalyse your portfolio’s performance and, through diversification, may offer lower risks than buying Bitcoin. It could improve your long-term financial outlook, and may even lead to you obtaining a £1m+ portfolio as stock prices recover in the coming years.

The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radarcenter_img The Boohoo share price is sliding: should I buy the stock today? The Boohoo (LSE: BOO) share price has been sliding recently. Shares in the fast-fashion company have fallen around 4% over the past month and approximately 3% since the beginning of the year. Over the past year, shares in the company have put in a better performance. The stock is up around 10%. However, this pales in comparison to its close peer, ASOS. Since the beginning of March 2020, shares in ASOS have returned 92%. 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 I think this only tells part of the story. While the Boohoo share price has underperformed over the past 12 months, its underlying business has achieved remarkable growth, thanks in part to the pandemic.As such, I have been taking a closer look at the stock recently to see if it could be worth adding the company to my investment portfolio. Boohoo share price opportunityThe fast-fashion retailer achieved staggering growth in 2020. It reported revenue growth of 44% and net income growth of 46% for the year.The boom in profitability has enabled the group to go on a buying spree. It recently spent £25.2m buying the Dorothy Perkins, Wallis, and Burton brands from failed retail group Arcadia. That followed a £55m deal to buy the Debenhams brand and website. While the business saw impressive growth in 2020, it also faced some significant challenges. An investigation into working practices at the company’s suppliers revealed that some workers were being paid below minimum wage. To deal with these issues, Boohoo set up its own investigation. While the company has tried to rectify its problems, the allegations and revelations have dented its reputation in the City. This is one reason why the Boohoo share price has performed so poorly compared to ASOS over the past year.That said, it seems consumers are more than happy to continue buying from the group. Still, this issue has reared its ugly head again today. According to a media report, the company could be facing a US import ban “because of widespread allegations over the use of slave labour.” Last year, the organisation generated more than a fifth of its global sales in the US, an important growth market for the firm. A significant problemBoohoo’s labour issues are a significant problem for the firm. For its part, management has said that it has increased oversight of suppliers and “ taken action against 64 suppliers who did not meet the group’s standards in the levels of transparency that business requires.” I think there are two sides to the Boohoo story. On the one hand, there’s the group’s explosive growth rate. On the other, there are the company’s supplier issues. Then there’s the aggressive nature of the fast-fashion industry to consider. Boohoo is the market champion today, but 10 years ago, Arcadia was a darling too.There’s no guarantee Boohoo will be able to avoid Arcadia’s fate. Despite the recent performance of the Boohoo share price, I am not going to buy the stock today. I think there’s just too much uncertainty surrounding the group’s long-term outlook.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Damian de Allende apologises but should not have been sent off

first_imgMonday Oct 9, 2017 Damian de Allende apologises but should not have been sent off Springbok replacement centre Damian de Allende has been issued a warning after the controversial red card that he was shown in the closing stages of the Springbok vs All Blacks thriller on Saturday. It was effectively ruled that the red card was incorrect. De Allende attempted to charge down a Lima Sopoaga drop goal attempt with just minutes left in the Rugby Championship clash at Newlands, but caught the replacement flyhalf with his forearm on the follow through, leading to a TMO review by referee Jerome Garces.Replays were shown that appeared to show De Allende making contact with Sopoaga’s face with his forearm or elbow, which Garces at the time decided was enough to warrant a sending off.A SANZAAR Foul Play Review Commitee has since found that the offence did not warrant a red card, and therefore have only issued a warning, with no further suspension. They said that the initial contact was with the chest, before sliding up. In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following:“Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles, as well as submissions from his legal representative, Attie Heyns, the Foul Play Review Committee found that, on an objective study, and with more time and video angles than the Referee had available to him, the act of foul play committed only came close to warranting a Red Card, and therefore a Warning (equivalent to a Yellow Card) was issued instead.”“The charge was late and the player had time to pull out before colliding with his opponent. “However, the collision was not effected with a great deal of force, with the initial contact being made with the player’s forearm on the opponent’s chest, from whence the arm rose up to make contact, again not forceful, onto the opponent’s neck. The opponent was not injured.“The player is therefore free to play and will serve no suspension”The two players exchanged tweets post match, showing the respect between the two sides.The penalty that occurred as part of the red card allowed Sopoaga to have a kick at goal, which he slotted to take New Zealand out to 25-17, leaving South Africa needing to score twice to win. They managed to score a converted try, for a 25-24 loss.While some felt that this incident was not even worthy of a penalty, with TV replays making it look far more sinister than it actually was, others are adamant it was a red card all day long.A yellow card and penalty would have, of course, resulted in the same outcome.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.

‘Stop, don’t shop!’: Northeast grocery workers on strike

first_imgApproximately 100 Stop & Shop workers and supporters rallied at the Somerville, Mass., store April 14 to demand a fair contract for members of Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 1445 on strike since April 11. On the busy highway out front, hundreds of cars honked, and drivers yelled, waved and raised fists in support of the strike.UFCW 1445 is one of five union locals representing workers at Stop & Shop locations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Combined, the five striking locals represent more than 31,000 workers who are fighting against the company’s attempt to completely dismantle what was previously considered the best food retailer contract in the region.A number of unions were present at the rally, including UFCW Local 791, Teamsters Local 122 and Local 25, Ironworkers Local 7, Service Employees (SEIU) Local 888 and Local 509, Massachusetts Nurses Association and UNITE HERE Local 26. The rally was also attended by political organizations, including Workers World Party, Boston Democratic Socialists, the Jewish Labor Committee and Our Revolution Somerville.Although police had forced striking workers away from the store entrance, strikers set up picket lines at parking lot entrances, which merged into one long picket during the rally. The determination of striking workers at this and other locations forced Stop & Shop back to the negotiating table as of Saturday night, April 13.Health care, pension, wages all at stakeAfter all five UFCW locals representing Stop & Shop workers voted with wide margins to authorize a strike last month, workers across the Northeast walked out at 1 p.m. on April 11. This was due to a breakdown in negotiations after Stop & Shop presented its disgraceful “final offer.”Workers World interviewed several workers at the picket line in Somerville, who highlighted what they considered to be the strike’s main issues. Most noted that they were not even fighting for any increases, but just to keep the contract they already had.Reina, who works in the produce section, told WW that her husband was deported to El Salvador in 2006. “I depend on this check to pay rent, internet, electricity and other things. I only have one income, and I am raising my three daughters on my own. The company wants to cut pensions, cut our vacation down to two weeks from four, refuse to pay us time-and-a-half on Sunday. My back hurts, but I will be out here as much as I can. We need to fight!”Workers also mentioned that the company wants to kick spouses off their insurance plans, which would hike health care costs for the workers. On top of that, proposed increases in health care premiums would cut workers’ take home pay and make increased expenses harder to meet.Stop & Shop is also trying to replace time-and-a-half pay on holidays and Sundays, the busiest day for food retailers, with flat bonuses that won’t increase with the cost of living. Several of the workers interviewed mentioned that their parents, children or other relatives also worked for Stop & Shop, multiplying the devastating effect of the proposed concessions.Workers also raised the increasing use of self-checkout lines to eliminate cashier jobs and the introduction of surveillance robots in many stores. Another issue was an attempt to introduce a two-tier system by denying new hires any union benefits — an increasingly common union-busting tactic.Many speakers also noted that the Stop & Shop strike comes in the wake of the successful Marriott hotel workers’ strike and the months-long National Grid lockout last year. The Stop Shop workers are determined to win their contract and mark another victory for the labor movement in the Northeast.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

JBS executive director steps down

first_img Robert Brescia, has resigned as executive director of the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute. Robert Brescia, the executive director of the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute, has left his post after five years.Gen. Tony Cucolo, the University of Texas System associate vice chancellor for leadership development and veterans affairs, will serve as a part-time interim executive director during the transition, a news release stated.Brescia could not be reached for comment as of press time. An email from Chief of Staff/Executive Director of Communication Tatum Hubbard said Brescia stepped down.“Ensuring that the JBS Leadership Institute achieves its full potential in our community and across the state is one of my top priorities. To that end, I will be investing more time over the coming months to incorporate the long term strategy for the Institute with our overall vision for UT Permian Basin,” President Sandra Woodley said in a statement.“I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Robert Brescia for his work and dedication to the JBS Institute over the past five years. Bob has indicated that he will be stepping down as executive director and has graciously agreed to serve as a consultant over the next several months during the transition,” Woodley added the statement.Cucolo is an expert on the leadership development of students, as well as faculty, administrative and senior-level campus leaders, the statement indicated.Prior to joining the UT System in 2015, Cucolo served more than 35 years in the U.S. Army, retiring in September 2014 at the rank of major general. He had numerous senior leadership assignments around the world and at the Pentagon, and his last assignment was president of the US Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.“I love West Texas and I am a firm believer in the principles of the JBS Leadership Institute. I want to ensure that those ideals remain alive and well so we never forget what John Ben Shepperd meant to public service. It’s my goal to ensure that his impact is passed on to future generations. I jumped at the chance to help Dr. Woodley and Chancellor McRaven in this endeavor,” Cucolo stated in the news release.Brescia was paid $131,019 and he was hired at UT Permian Basin in November 2013. Currently, during this phase of the interim, UT Permian Basin is not paying salary costs for Cucolo.More Information JBS executive director steps down Local NewsEducation The University of Texas System.JBS Public Leadership Institute.

Efficient path estimation through parallel media for wide-beam ice-sounding radar.

first_imgThe authors propose an algorithm to estimate the path followed by refracted signals from a source to a target, through a medium formed by uniform parallel layers with known different refractive indices, a common model used for ice radioecho sounding. The analytical solution is a polynomial with a degree that exponentially depends on the number of layers, being computationally inefficient. For low incidence angles, the small-angle approximation can be used to avoid the polynomial. In their technique, they normalise the governing equations to obtain a framework where to find a narrow angular interval containing the solution, finally estimated interpolating the boundaries. The new approach improves the results regarding the small-angle approximation for a wider angular range at a slightly higher computational time. This method has been applied to focus airborne synthetic aperture radar images for deep ice sounding, reducing the calculation time and improving the detected response in wide beam and squinted geometries, used for high along-track resolution or the detection of sloping internal layers.last_img read more
