I’d buy this share now during the coronavirus lockdown

first_imgI’d buy this share now during the coronavirus lockdown Thomas Carr | Monday, 4th May, 2020 | More on: YCA Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Thomas Carr 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. The recent stock market crash has provided many opportunities to buy shares at low prices. The problem is that in many cases we do not know just these prices are good value. This is because we still do not really know what implications the coronavirus and lockdown are going to have for the economy and specific businesses.With that in mind, I think one of the best investment strategies is to look for companies whose operations and business models will not be impacted by the pandemic. In other words, I would buy shares in companies that are resilient and that could come out the other end stronger. I think I’ve found just the company.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…Coronavirus immunity?Yellow Cake (LSE: YCA) specialises in buying and holding uranium, aiming to benefit from the appreciation in the value of its holdings. Profits are realised by selling its uranium to nuclear power plants or to traders.The company does not mine the uranium itself, nor does it store it at its own facilities. Instead, it purchases it sporadically from the world’s largest uranium miner, and pays for another company to store it on its behalf. It’s a low-cost operating model, that is not impacted directly by the coronavirus.Yellow Cake only became a listed company in 2018, raising £180m, which it then spent on buying uranium. It now holds over 9m lbs of it, valued at $312m in mid-April. Since acquisition, the value of its holdings has risen by 26%, giving the company a net asset value of £2.88 per share. Compellingly, this is 30% above the current share price.Management is convinced of the positive long-term outlook for the uranium price, considering the market to be structurally mispriced. This confidence comes from a predicted supply-demand imbalance that is the result of uranium producers severely reducing production over a number of years. This imbalance is only magnified by coronavirus, with miners shutting down or scaling back production.Despite negative headlines surrounding nuclear energy, it plays an important role in the global energy mix. And it makes heavy use of uranium. This looks set to continue, with China, India and Russia all committed to building a significant number of new reactors. Worldwide, there are 54 nuclear reactors under construction, with a further 109 planned. The US Energy Information Administration predicts a 29% increase in nuclear-generated power by 2030.What’s mu verdict?OK, this stock is probably not for the faint-hearted. The company does not have much of track record to go by, and doesn’t pay a dividend either. But there is a strong investment case. What’s more, I think its discounted share price – the shares trade at only eight times last year’s earnings – makes it especially attractive.Crucially, Yellow Cake looks likely to be unharmed by the pandemic. Quite the opposite, I feel. The company has no debt and does not employ large swathes of people. And forced production shutdowns sent the uranium price up 11% in March alone. I think this is a risky share, not least for its dependence on an industry that is inherently risky. But I also think that it could help to diversify any portfolio, and provide significant returns to boot. For that reason, I’d buy the shares.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address The stock market crash in the spring was brutal. Shares dropped like an elevator with a broken cable. Covid-19 hit the world hard and fast, and economies locked down all over the world.Since then, the threat of a second stock market crash has been hanging in the air. Many people have heard how the second wave of the Spanish flu pandemic was worse than the first just over 100 years ago. Naturally, we all fear a similar scenario 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…Will the second stock market crash be in slow motion?And just lately, there have been a few worrying signs of the virus bubbling back up around the world. Even our prime minister, Boris Johnson, has been talking about the possible beginnings of a second wave abroad.But it’s not decisive. It’s not absolute. And I reckon that’s why we haven’t seen a massive second crash in the stock market so far this year. But with the rising concerns about the virus, I do think we are seeing some shares rolling over and giving back some of the gains they made following the spring crash. Are we seeing a second stock market crash developing in slow motion?Look at bank shares, for example. At today’s share price around 102p, Barclays is about 23% down from its recent bounce-back peak. And at just over 26p,  Lloyds Banking Group has retraced back down by 30%. It’s happening in other sectors too. At 620p, housebuilder Vistry is around 30% down and heading in the direction of its spring lows. And at 120p, Taylor Wimpey is 28% lower.Meanwhile, airline operator easyJet is more than 40% down again, and food-service provider Compass has retraced lower by 25%. It seems that all these businesses have one thing in common – they would all be hit hard if Covid-19 caused more lockdowns in the economy.Some names remain strongIn fairness, not all shares are taking back recent gains. Just yesterday for example, fashion clothing and accessories retailer Next shot up by around 10% in just one day. The company issued a positive trading statement declaring sales had been better than expected through the coronavirus crisis.And plumbing and heating supplies distributor Ferguson is holding on to recent gains. As are security software provider Avast, retailer Dunelm, and consumer goods champions Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser.I think the weakness we’re seeing in the out-and-out cyclical businesses underlines how sensitive and vulnerable they are to wider economic conditions. Meanwhile, investing guru Warren Buffett teaches us to cheer lower prices in the stock market. When the stock market moves lower and share prices fall, there’s more chance of picking up a bargain with shares.There are differences in performance and investor sentiment between various sectors. I reckon that demonstrates how important it is to marry your search for ‘cheap’ with a focus on the quality of the underlying business.Now’s a good time to go shopping for shares, but I’d be very selective in my choices. 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.

Russell Westbrook incident exposes ongoing racism

first_imgRussell Westbrook is a super-talented guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder and a former most valuable player. On March 11, during a National Basketball Association regular season game between the Oklahoma team and the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Westbrook, who is African American, was verbally assaulted from the stands by a white fan, Shane Keisel, and his white spouse. Both fans were recorded telling Westbrook to “get down on your knees like you’re used to.”Westbrook’s response was to tell the couple, “I’ll f-ck you up.” (The Undefeated, March 13) Westbrook called their remarks “racial” and “inappropriate.”Westbrook has since apologized to the spouse, but not to Keisel, who all of a sudden deleted his twitter feed full of racist and xenophobic rants, with Westbrook the main target. Westbrook was fined $25,000 for having an angry exchange with the fan, which is in violation of National Basketball Association regulations.Russell WestbrookKeisel and his spouse, whose name was not made public, were subsequently banned for life from attending Jazz home games. Footage from a 2018 playoff game between the Thunder and the Jazz resulted in another fan being banned from Jazz games after calling Westbrook “boy.”The Utah team’s Black players immediately came to Westbrook’s defense, especially center Rudy Gobert, forward Thabo Sefolosha and guard Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell stated, “As a Black man living in a community I love and playing on a team that gives me the opportunity to live out my dreams, this incident hits close to home.  Racism and hate speech hurt us all, and this is not the first time something like this has happened in our arena. The Utah that I have come to love is welcoming and inclusive and [Monday’s] incident is not indicative to our fan base. We don’t want to create a negative environment for our athletes who potentially want to come to Utah.”Sefolosha posted on Instagram: “I stand 100% with Russell Westbrook on what happened in yesterday’s game. I love our fans but there are limits that cannot be crossed! Support and cheer for your team and enjoy the action, but fans like Shane Keisel, who use that platform to spur their hateful and racist views, need to be held accountable.”Sefolosha, who is of Black South African descent, had his leg broken two years ago by members of the New York Police Department outside a nightclub.Current and retired NBA players from other teams have stated that they faced racist taunts from white fans, especially in Salt Lake City. Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, Draymond Green and Kenyon Martin reported being called the N-word. Abdul-Rauf, a Muslim, was forced out of the NBA when he bowed his head during the playing of the national anthem during the 1990s.The white owner of the Jazz, Gail Miller, made a pre-game speech on March 14 claiming that Salt Lake City is not a racist community. She said in part: “We believe in treating people with courtesy and respect as human beings. From time to time, individual fans exhibit poor behavior and forget their manners. Some disrespect players on other teams. When that happens, I want to jump up and shout, ‘Stop!’” (deseretnews.com, March 14)Inequality between fans and playersWhat happened to Westbrook is a constant reminder that sports reflect U.S. culture, a culture riddled with white supremacist views.  Consider the fact that Earl Lloyd, one of the first African-American players drafted in the NBA in 1950, was accused by a white fan of having a “tail.”While today close to 75 percent of the players on the NBA’s 30 teams are African-American, the fan base is overwhelmingly white. This reflects both the location of corporate-sponsored arenas in suburban areas and high ticket prices. The Black population in the U.S. still remains a little over 12 percent. (news.gallup.com)Overall the NBA includes 450 to 500 players. While salaries range from six figures for rookies to eight figures for a handful of superstar players, many fans, especially if they are white, view Black players as well-paid gladiators, open to all kinds of abuse.Even teams with the worst records make hundreds of millions of dollars in profits for their billionaire owners from television, ticket prices and concession stand revenues during the 82-game regular season. The owners rake in even more if the teams play in the postseason.Players perceived to be fearless, passionate and uncompromising in their play on the court, like Russell Westbrook, or who take strong political stands, like Abdul-Rauf, can easily become open targets of racist attacks. These include physical assaults, with fans throwing beverages or garbage at them during and after games.Since the Westbrook incident, more and more NBA players are demanding better respect and treatment by the fans through their union, the National Basketball Players Association.  One proposal, which may be implemented sooner than later, is to play a public service announcement in each NBA arena before each game outlining a code of standards for all fans. If they do not adhere to this code, they will face the consequences of being ejected immediately from games or eventually banned for life.The president of the association, Michelle Roberts, who is African American, stated, “We should all insist that a zero tolerance policy needs to be implemented at arenas in the face of misconduct by fans. Players don’t have the luxury of being able to unilaterally ban unruly fans from the arenas, a la [New York Knicks owner] James Dolan. The arenas, therefore, have to do a better job of insulating our players.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

JROTC cadets work concessions at TCU football games

first_img + posts Twitter Facebook Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Linkedin Linkedin ereardon Paschal High School gains new assistant principal ereardonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ereardon/ printMembers of Paschal High School’s Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps participate in a unique activity not typical for all high school cadets.The Paschal Army JROTC program operates concession and pretzel stands at the Amon G. Carter Stadium during the Texas Christian University home football games.JROTC instructor, Terry Leboeuf, supervises 251 Paschal cadets. Each game day, 60 of those cadets work the concession stands. Cadets arrive at the stadium three hours prior to game time to open the concessions.He said that working the TCU concession stands is a teamwork event.“Kids get to work together as a team to become involved and to learn different skills that they can take into the workforce later on in life,” Leboeuf said.Each cadet working the concession stand has a different job, including operating the cash register and filling orders.“Towards half time, we may have a dozen people lined up at the 18 cash registers,” Leboeuf said. “So it gets very hectic. The kids have to work together as a team so that we can put out the product to the public appropriately.”The weekend work doesn’t only exist as a team building exercise. Leboeuf said each year the money the cadets raise while operating the concession stands is used for the military ball, a formal event for cadets, parents and guests.“We have a sit down dinner, a dance, and most importantly we farewell our seniors,” Leboeuf said.The money from the concession stands will also be used to fund the four drill meets the cadets participate in this year. The meets include both competitive shooting and academics.Leboeuf said that he thinks the kids get a lot out of working the concession stands.“I like working the concession stands. I get to meet college kids, which is pretty cool,” cadet Jordan Bandy said.The cadets will next be working the stands for the last home game of the season against Baylor on Nov. 27.

Man pleads guilty to murdering girlfriend on Carnival cruise ship

first_imgScottshotz/iStock(WASHINGTON) — A Kansas man has admitted to murdering his longtime girlfriend on a cruise ship off the coast of Florida last year, federal prosecutors said. Eric Duane Newman, 55, of Topeka, Kansas, pleaded to guilty in federal court on Thursday to one count of second-degree murder with malice aforethought for the January 2018 death of his 50-year-old girlfriend, Tamara Tucker, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice. Newman and Tucker boarded the Carnival Elation cruise ship in Jacksonville, Florida, on Jan. 18, 2019, for a round-trip voyage to the Bahamas. The couple was staying in a cabin room on the vessel’s 13th deck, prosecutors said.Newman admitted during his plea hearing that they argued in their room late that night. Newman said he strangled Tucker and pushed her over the balcony railing of their cabin room, causing her to fall onto the 11th deck just after midnight on Jan. 18. Tucker died from blunt force trauma caused by the fall, prosecutors said. The cruise ship was sailing in international waters at the time, about 30 nautical miles from New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Carnival Cruise Line said in a statement the day after Tucker’s death that “the ship’s medical team responded immediately, but, unfortunately, she passed away.”Tucker, a native of Lawson, Missouri, had been a social work professor at Park University in Parkville, Missouri, from 2012 to 2017. Her obituary described Newman as her “partner and longtime love.” Newman was arrested for Tucker’s murder nearly eight months after her death. His sentencing is scheduled for March 18.

Officer charged in death of Black man who family says was trying to break up dispute

first_imgTexas RangersBy MARC NATHANSON, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A Texas police officer has been charged with murder in the shooting death of a Black man in East Texas over the weekend.Wolfe City police officer Shaun Lucas was being held on a $1 million bond following his arrest late Monday night, according to the Texas Rangers, who are investigating the incident.According to a Texas Rangers statement, on Saturday night Lucas responded to a disturbance call for a possible fight in progress, where he found a man later identified as 31-year-old Jonathan Price, who was reportedly involved in the disturbance.The statement said the officer, who is white, attempted to detain Price, who resisted in a non-threatening posture and began walking away.Lucas deployed his Taser and then discharged his service weapon, striking Price, according to the statement. Price was transported to Hunt Regional Hospital, where he later died.According to the statement, “the preliminary investigation indicates that the actions of Officer Lucas were not objectionably reasonable.”An attorney for Lucas was not immediately available for comment Monday night.“He noticed a man assaulting a woman and he intervened. When police arrived, I’m told, he raised his hands and attempted to explain what was going on,” civil rights attorney Lee Merritt said in a Facebook post. “Police fired Tasers at him and when his body convulsed from the electrical current, they ‘perceived a threat’ and shot him to death.”“What’s really sickening is that he was doing the right thing… he saw a man putting his hands on a woman and stepped in to stop the altercation,” tweeted former Major League Baseball third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who grew up with Price. “The man then fought him… then the police shot him. He was unarmed. I’m heartbroken.”A GoFundMe page started by Middlebrooks, who is white, had raised more than $60,000 to cover Price’s funeral expenses as of Monday night.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
