In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” From June, the FTSE 100 index zigzagged downwards, losing ground as rising Covid-19 infections worried investors. By Halloween, the Footsie had dropped 590 points — almost a tenth (9.6%) — as share prices drifted downwards. Then came a near-record month, with cheap shares staging a massive comeback and the FTSE 100 leaping by almost an eighth (12.4%) in November. However, not all stocks rose in this relief rally, with several quality companies lagging behind.Bottom-fishing for cheap sharesFrom early June until today, 29 FTSE 100 members have seen their share prices decline. The worst performer has crashed by almost a quarter (24.1%), while the best of these 29 losers had its share price dip by just 0.3%. Overall, the average decline among these laggards is 9%, with 12 stocks recording higher falls than this. I see this ‘dirty dozen’ as fertile ground for bottom-fishing — finding unloved and cheap shares ready to rebound. Here are two quality stocks I like the look of 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…BP is the bottom pickOil & gas giant BP (LSE: BP) has the dubious honour of being the worst-performing FTSE 100 stock over the past six months. BP shareholders have had a terrible year, due to the oil price crashing as fuel demand dried up during lockdowns. In early 2020, a barrel of Brent crude cost around $70. At its low on 22 April, Brent crude traded below $16 a barrel. As a result, and following a hefty dividend cut, BP’s share price imploded.BP stock crashed spectacularly from 471.6p at the end of 2019 to just 188.52p by 28 October. At this point, these cheap shares were priced at a 26-year low. Since then, BP stock has bounced back hard and now trades at 262.46p, up almost two-fifths (39.2%) from its low. Despite this healthy recovery, I suspect BP shares are trading at a discount to their underlying value. After all, BP — one of the world’s energy supermajors — has a market value just above £50bn today. Obviously, BP is not a stock for green/environment investors, but its shares offer a compelling dividend yield of 6% a year. In a world of low or negative interest rates, this is a passive income not to be missed. That’s why I’d buy BP’s bargain stock today.Will GSK bounce in 2021?The second of my ‘loser picks’ of the past month is GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). The cheap shares of the UK’s #2 pharma giant keep getting steadily cheaper this year. In fact, they are at #24 in my list of 29 losers, down nearly a sixth (16.4%) in the past six months. Since hitting its 52-week peak of 1,857p on 24 January, GSK stock has dived to just 1,397p today. That’s a decline of 460p — almost a quarter (24.8%) — from the January high.In a year when UK and US healthcare stocks have boomed, GSK has completely missed this rising tide. I struggle to understand this, because its cheap shares look attractive to me. Having been a GSK shareholder for most of the past three decades, I see this stock as a prime candidate for recovery in 2020. After all, GSK shares trade on a lowly price-to-earnings ratio of 10.8% and an attractive earnings yield of 9.2%. Even better, they offer patient investors a bumper dividend yield of 5.7%, with quarterly cash dividends totalling 80p a share. As a lifelong follower of GSK, I am happy to continue reinvesting my dividends into more shares, waiting patiently for a rebound in 2021!

Leinster v Scarlets Guinness Pro14 final preview

first_img TAGS: LeinsterScarlets LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Leinster v Scarlets Guinness Pro14 final previewIt’s the defending champions against the European champions in this year’s Guinness Pro14 final on Saturday evening. Scarlets reigned supreme in last season’s tournament, beating Leinster and Munster in the knockout stages to lift the trophy, while Leinster’s recent win over Racing 92 means they equalled Toulouse’s record of four European Cup titles.The two sides are familiar foes and Scarlets have yet to beat Leinster this season. They lost 20-13 at the RDS and drew 10-10 at Parc y Scarlets in the league, then lost 38-15 at the Aviva Stadium – the same venue as this final – in the Champions Cup semi-finals.Pivotal: Johnny Sexton is a talisman for Leinster at fly-half (Getty Images)Plus, the Welsh region haven’t had the best preparation. Not only will they be missing John Barclay, who ruptured his Achilles tendon against Glasgow last week, but they were unable to train as a whole squad until Thursday as players recovered from burns and blisters suffered during that win over the Warriors on Scotstoun’s artificial pitch.Hadleigh Parkes will make his 100th Scarlets appearance in the final while Leigh Halfpenny returns at full-back after recovering from a hamstring injury that saw him miss last week’s semi-final. Barclay’s injury means Tadhg Beirne will start at No 8 with Lewis Rawlins coming into the second row.For Leinster, Isa Nacewa will captain the province in what will be his last game for them while Rob Kearney, Johnny Sexton and Dan Leavy also return to the starting line-up.How did the two teams reach this stage?Leinster finished top of Conference B ahead of the Scarlets by dint of a better points difference – both sides finished on 70 points and 14 wins – and so moved straight to the semi-finals, where they pipped Munster 16-15 in Dublin.Leading man: Ken Owens captained Scarlets to a semi-final win over Glasgow (Getty Images)Defending champions Scarlets went into a play-off against the Cheetahs – third in Conference A – and thrashed the South African side 43-8 to reach the last four. They had to travel to Glasgow but beat the Warriors 28-13 to reach the final at the Aviva Stadium.What have the coaches said?Leinster’s Leo Cullen: “Once they have a lead they are so difficult to play against because they have so many men defending in the front line and they make life very uncomfortable for teams. They’re very dangerous in terms of taking the chances they have.”Related: The remarkable story of Tadhg Beirne Scarlets Wayne Pivac: “They taught us a real lesson a month ago. It was a tough one to take. We felt we didn’t fire any shots as a group. We want to put out a better account of ourselves.”Euro stars: Leinster celebrate their Champions Cup victory over Racing 92 in Bilbao (Getty Images)Any interesting statistics?Having already won the Champions Cup, Leinster are aiming to become the first side to complete a European Cup and Pro14 (in all the league’s various guises) double. Only English and French clubs have previously completed the European Cup and domestic league double.Scarlets are aiming to becoming only the second side, after Leinster, to successfully defend this league title. Leinster won the trophy back-to-back in 2013 and 2014.Leinster’s Barry Daly is the top try-scorer in this season’s Pro14 with 12. Steff Evans is the highest Scarlet on the list with eight and Tadhg Beirne is the highest-ranked forward with seven.Danger man: Steff Evans is a big attacking threat on the wing for Scarlets (Getty Images)Tadhg Beirne’s 37 turnovers won in the league are 15 more than the next best on the list, Nick Williams with 22.Leinster scored more tries than any other team during the regular Pro14 season with 83. Scarlets crossed the line 69 times.When does it kick off and is it on TV?The final kicks off at 6pm – it has been moved forward half an hour to accommodate interest in the Champions Cup final later on Saturday night – and will be televised live on Sky Sports, with coverage starting at 5.30pm. It will also be broadcast live on S4C and TG4, and RTE radio and BBC Radio Wales.Familiar territory: A scrum in the Leinster v Scarlets Champions Cup semi-final at the Aviva Stadium (Getty Images)South African referee Stuart Berry will take charge of the game with Italian Marius Mitrea and Scot Mike Adamson his assistants.What are the line-ups?LEINSTER: Rob Kearney; Jordan Larmour, Garry Ringrose, Isa Nacewa (captain), James Lowe; Johnny Sexton, Luke McGrath; Cian Healy, Sean Cronin, Tadhg Furlong, Devin Toner, James Ryan, Rhys Ruddock, Dan Leavy, Jack Conan.Replacements: James Tracey, Jack McGrath, Andrew Porter, Scott Fardy, Jordi Murphy, Nick McCarthy, Joey Carberry, Rory O’Loughlin.SCARLETS: Leigh Halfpenny; Johnny McNicholl, Scott Williams, Hadleigh Parkes, Steffan Evans; Rhys Patchell, Gareth Davies; Rob Evans, Ken Owens (captain), Samson Lee, Lewis Rawlins, Steven Cummins, Aaron Shingler, James Davies, Tadhg Beirne.

Block A is the first of three new blocks of buildings that are being built north of Delflandplein in the Amsterdam district of Slotervaart. Maximum density was strived for in order to set a large-scale renovation of the Delflandplein neighbourhood into motion for the first new block of buildings: 170 social council dwellings, a day activity centre and business spaces will replace the original building, three strips of housing only several storeys high.

The trend towards reducing the programme for stacked dwellings to average three-room apartments of 90 m2 could thus be avoided. As a result, it was possible to build multiple types of residences in this block, and the original ideals of the western suburbs – a balanced differentiation of dwellings for the elderly, starters and families – have been restored here in an updated form. An inner garden is being created on a car park in the heart of the building. Earthen hills make it possible to place large trees in the grass. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe considerable noise pollution from the nearby A10 Amsterdam ring road was the reason for this particular façade design. The two higher parts of the U-formed block have a very closed façade facing the ring road. The opposite west side, on the other hand, was made as open as possible with large frontages and outer areas. The large prefab concrete façade panels, containing brickwork, allude to the original brick assembly technique used in Slotervaart, but at the same time attempt to break with the monotonous, repetitive appearance of traditional prefab façades. Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgBy making the panels two storeys high, staggering the vertical seams and alternating the panels in the diagonal junctions, the building takes on a new, more sculptural and powerful appearance. Due to the different tints of stone, as well as the alternating relation of the surface of the stones and the joints in the different brickwork patterns, a relatively colourful image emerges of woven carpets hanging next to and above each other.

Amsterdam North is rapidly developing into a diverse and desirable district of Amsterdam. In a special location in the heart of this neighbourhood, Houben & Van Mierlo Architecten have designed the renovation of two old ‘potato barns’ into contemporary residential properties for two families, including an in-house photo studio for the famous photography duo Scheltens & Abbenes.Save this picture!© Scheltens & AbbenesOne barn dates back to the Second World War and was built using hybrid construction techniques; the second was added in the sixties and built as a steel construction with wooden floors and a concrete stone facade. In accordance with the plan for the redevelopment and the renovation of the land and buildings, several old extensions were demolished and the existing interior completely stripped. Following a sophisticated plan, the main rooms were re-formatted into large, loft-like living and working spaces.Save this picture!Floor PlansIn the arrangement of these spaces, the original constructions of the barns have remained visible.

New Fertilizer Rules Take Effect

first_imgBy Keith Robinson  The Office of Indiana State Chemist is continuing its yearlong effort to help farmers comply with new rules regulating how manure and other fertilizers can be staged on farms and applied to fields. The rules took effect Feb. 16. “We are getting the message to farmers and producers since they are the ones who have to come up with the plan to protect water,” said Matthew Pearson, administrator of the OISC’s fertilizer section. The office will use discretion in enforcing the rules as farmers, fertilizer distributors and applicators continue to familiarize themselves with the regulations and comply. The rules provide for civil penalties ranging from $100 to $1,000 per day or incident. SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE New Fertilizer Rules Take Effect The most common question the office receives from farmers and applicators is whether they need special licensing or certification. In most cases, they do not. But those applying manure from confined feeding operations or those using it for hire need separate certification, and Category 14-licensed applicators are required to keep appropriate records. The rules apply to anyone who uses or distributes commercial fertilizer or manure in producing an agricultural crop, except for those who apply less than 10 cubic yards or 4,000 gallons in a year.The Purdue-based OISC wrote the rules as required by the state Legislature in 2011. Then-Gov. Mitch Daniels approved them in February 2012. The rules complement Indiana Department of Environmental Management regulations and align with strategies to reduce the flow of farm nutrients in waterways, Pearson saidIn the past year, Pearson has given presentations at about 50 meetings, including those under the Private Applicator Recertification Program. In addition, there have been a couple of hundred other workshops across Indiana’s 92 counties. Last month the OISC mailed details of the new rules, including a question-and-answer format highlighting major points, to all farmers, fertilizer dealers, applicators and pesticide dealers on record in Indiana. Some other most frequently asked questions:* Where can I get a template for creating a fertilizer application plan? Pearson noted there is no such form because situations on each farm are different. Local Purdue Extension offices can assist farmers in creating a plan, which needs to include all nutrient inputs and crop needs.* Are there restrictions for applying manure to frozen or snow-covered ground? Yes, surface applications require additional setbacks from surface water. There also are requirements involving the rate of manure that can be replied.* What are record-keeping requirements for Category 14-certified applicators? They must keep for two years a record of the location, certified applicator’s name and license or certification number, fertilizer, nutrient value, rate per acre and the method of application. There is no specific form for this.

Now, with the fires out and the state’s efforts are turning to rebuilding communities—what’s anticipated for properties in the area?Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com shared her forecast for the northern California markets recovering from the aftermath of the fires. In a recent interview with The Real Deal, Hale said that the already tight housing market situation has below normal-vacancy rates for both owner-occupied housing stock and renter-occupied housing stock, making it difficult for people to find places to live while they try to rebuild.However, Hale said, “The interesting thing about this location is the economy is so phenomenally strong, and I don’t see that job-creation engine changing anytime soon.”So while prices may slow down, Hale doesn’t forecast big decreases that have been seen in other areas that have been impacted by natural disasters.Although, the properties surrounding the areas are impacted, with values increasing as people are looking to relocate.“We’re talking about 5 percent or so of the housing stock—that essentially means 5 percent of the people who were living in the area are now trying to figure out somewhere else to go,” Hale said. “We took a look at the assessment data in the area and we found that larger homes, like a three-bedroom and higher, were more likely to be affected by the fire; they were most likely to have been in areas where they were burned.”In particular, it is predicted that family homes, or larger apartments that have more bedrooms that are suitable to families, are where the market is going to see prices increase the most.  Print This Post Previous: New York Fed President Dudley Announces 2018 Retirement Next: Indictment Returned for Foreclosure Auction Rigging Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago November 6, 2017 1,434 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Fires Out: The Future of California’s Housing Market Nicole Casperson is the Associate Editor of DS News and MReport.
