2 shares I think look cheap after the stock market crash

first_img2 shares I think look cheap after the stock market crash Jonathan Smith does not own shares in any firm mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Auto Trader and Diageo. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. All the selling in the market over the past few weeks has left us with some severely undervalued firms. Now, as investors we need to be careful. Some businesses have seen a sharp fall in their price for good reasons. Think airlines and other travel firms that will take a devastating revenues hit for 2020 due to the fallout from the coronavirus and travel restrictions. I would steer clear of companies in this sector.On the flip side, there are some firms that have a lower share price without such obvious reasons. And I think some of these can provide good long-term upside for investors.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…Staying parkedOne share I would recommend holding, or buying if you do not own it already, is Auto Trader (LSE: AUTO). This is an online marketplace to buy and sell new and used cars. Like most constituents of the FTSE 100 index, it has seen a share price fall of almost 24% over the past month. But is this warranted?Financial results from 2019 were very strong. Numbers were up across the board, from revenue (+8%) to operating profit (+10%). Even with the disruption seen in early 2020 so far, I am not overly concerned about its prospects. The market for used cars is fairly inelastic, and the actual searching and information-gathering for a car can be done by consumers at home. Given the strong financial performance for the past few years, the fundamental business of Auto Trader is strong. With low physical overheads due to its online presence, and a lack of capital tied up in actual cars, the business has the ability to see out a tough start to the year. Through buying this dip in the share price, I think investors could be well rewarded into the second half of 2020 and beyond.Time for a drinkThe second big name I would consider at the moment is Diageo (LSE: DGE). The multinational drinks owner might not be the first company you might expect me to choose. Won’t the firm be impacted by the global supply chain disruption? Yes, very likely. But the element that makes Diageo a lower-risk buy than some other international firms is that it is well-diversified. This is the case geographically, but also across market segments and demographics.It also has a basket of powerful and desirable brand names that have proved popular in good times and bad. Think Johnnie Walker, Baileys, Smirnoff, Gordon’s, Guinness and more. Further, the company is already being proactive regarding the impact from the coronavirus. It has recently announced a likely hit of £200m to profits this year, due to the virus lockdown. This is being priced-in to the share price, which is down 21% over the past month. Investors are now aware of this hit to profit, so it will not be a surprise when it happens. With bad news priced-in to the share, any revision with better news could be a catalyst for the share price to rally. When you consider that in the last fiscal year profit was up 9.5% to almost £4bn, it is certainty not a business where long-term demand is falling. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

His application for bail reserved for orders, on Tuesday, after the Mumbai Police vehemently argued against granting him bail. Special Public Prosecutor Shishir Hirey read out several Watsapp chats between Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami and Dasputa to display their ‘proximity.’ In one of the chats cited in the supplementary chargesheet Goswami allegedly offers to mediate with the PMO’s office on behalf of Dasgupta, while in another they speak about manipulating the TRPs of Republic to surpass Times Now. Hirey argued that Dasgupta, in his capacity as the CEO of BARC, was supposed to be a neutral party and that the rise in TRPs of a channel was directly proportional to its ad-revenue. Hirey further submitted that he ex-BARC CEO can influence witnesses if he is granted bail. A graduate from IIM Calcutta, Partho Dasgupta’s was the CEO of Broadcast Audience Research Council (“BARC”) between June 2013 and November 2019. The Crime Branch has charged him under sections 409(criminal breach of trust by a public servant), 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code. Represented by advocates Shardul Singh and Arjun Singh, Dasgupta argued that there was nothing more left to be recovered from him. The chats were not authenticated by a 65B certificate under the Indian Evidence Act. Moreover, an Oversight Committee has certified by their own report that TRPs cannot be tampered with manually. It is very scintillating to read someone’s private chats but those need to have some evidentiary value, Singh said. Explaining the manner in which TRP data is collected, he argued that “The viewership data is collected by Hansa Group (complainant), BARC’s alogrithms are applied and TRP Data is published.” Moreover, they have argued that there is no corroborative evidence of manipulation of chats. They claimed the prosecution has relied heavily on a private report to show manipulation trying to pass it off as a forensic audit. Importantly the co-accused who was allegedly directly involved in manipulation, according to the report, is already on bail. Last week the Mumbai Police filed a 3,400-page supplementary charge sheet into the television rating point (TRP) case naming Vikas Khanchandani, CEO of Republic TV; Romil Ramgarhia and Dasgupta, CCO and CEO of Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC), respectively and Republic TV’s COO Priya Mukherjee. The Crime Branch has claimed that Ramgarhia manipulated TRP rating of rival channels of Republic TV to show increase in TRP of Republic TV, around 40 weeks since its launch.Next Storylast_img read more

Classification and ordination of cryptogamic communities in Wilkes Land, Continental Antarctica

first_imgThe entirely cryptogamic vegetation of Bailey and Clark Peninsulas, Windmill Islands, Budd Coast, Wilkes Land, Antarctica, is described for the first time. The vegetation of this area is exceptionally well developed and diverse and represents one of the most important botanical sites on the continent. The macroflora comprises three species of moss, one liverwort, three fruticose lichens, four foliose and over 20 crustose lichens; several macroalgae also occur. Seventy stands of relatively homogeneous vegetation were analysed and the percentage cover afforded by every species within 20 quadrats per site was recorded. A subjective classification was developed by visual ordering of the data sets and a hierarchical system erected which incorporates one moss- and one lichen-dominated sub-formation; the former includes two associations and seven sociations, while the latter comprises one association which includes four sociations. The data were then arranged by centroid linkage analysis to produce an objective classification, and subsequently ordinated by principal components analysis to generate groups of stands, the inter-relations of which were interpreted in ecological and environmental terms. The objective classification and ordination strongly support the subjectively derived groupings or sociations. Examples of plant interactions are qualitatively described.last_img read more

Georgia oranges?

first_imgKumquats: several varieties, usesDowdy lives in Brunswick, Ga. There, he doesn’t worry much aboutfrost and freeze damage. “When I was a teenager, our family had akumquat tree in our yard on Jekyll Island,” he said. “So my firstcitrus tree was a kumquat.”Good choice. Kumquats are the most cold hardy of the commonlygrown acid citrus fruits. “Kumquats have delayed growth in thespring,” Fonseca said. “This helps them avoid late freezedamage.”The kumquat is widely grown in home landscapes. It becomes anattractive, shrub-like tree with orange-like fruits about 1 inchin diameter.The fruits can be eaten fresh, peel and all, or used to makejellies, marmalade and candies. Several varieties are available.But only three are commonly propagated: Nagami, Marumi and Meiwa.”Nagami fruits are oblong to pear-shaped and have acid pulp,”Fonseca said. “The others are sweeter and rounder. Meiwa, whichproduces nearly round, sweet fruit, has become one of the mostpopular varieties for home planting.”Unfortunately, Dowdy’s kumquat plant declined and died. His nextcitrus tree has brought much more success. Experimenting with different citrus”The tangerine tree just took off and produced a lot of fruit injust a year,” he said. “I planted it by a huge oak tree, so Ithink it protects the tree from what little frost we do get.”The first year, Dowdy drove into Florida to buy citrus-fruitfertilizer.”The second year, it started looking bad, so I boughtcitrus-fruit spikes from Home Depot,” he said. “It perked upafter that and produced so much fruit that the limbs broke.”Dowdy and his neighbors often share their harvests. “On my streetalone, we have grapefruits, oranges, kumquats and tangerinesgrowing,” he said. By Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaDavid Dowdy harvested enough tangerines from his backyard tree togive a small basketful to each of his family members. That maynot impress you, except that Dowdy lives in Georgia, not Florida.University of Georgia specialists say citrus trees can grow incoastal and extreme southern Georgia with proper attention toselection and cold hardiness. South Georgia bestThey grow best south of a Columbus-to-Macon-to-Augusta line, saidMarco Fonseca, a Cooperative Extension horticulturist with theUGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.Fonseca strongly discourages trying to grow citrus in middle tonorth Georgia or in home landscapes lower than U.S. Department ofAgriculture zone 9.”The most significant limiting factor to citrus culture in theseareas is the damage from severe winter temperature,” he said. “Georgians along the coast have had success the past few yearsdue to the mild winters.”Fonseca has seen citrus growing as far north as Cherokee Co., butonly trifoliate-oranges. “This is a thorny tree with fruit that’sso sour it’s inedible,” he said.Georgia’s unpredictable weather also lessens homeowners’ chancesof success. “It can be 75 degrees one day and below freezing thenext,” he said. “This will obviously kill new growth and bloomsor flowers that could become fruit (and) put added stress on theplant.” Not just for fruitCitrus plants can be grown as individual plants or in groups ashedges, Fonseca said. They also make excellent container plants.”In addition to providing fruits, citrus plants make attractiveornamental specimens,” he said. “And they’re self-fruitful, sothey don’t require cross-pollination.”Hybrid plants called citranges have been crossed to grow betterin Georgia conditions, he said. “I know of two varieties that aregrowing in Telfair County and Thomasville,” he said. “Theyproduce blooms, but the fruit is lemon-like.”Back in Brunswick, Dowdy’s already planning his next citrusexperiment. “My neighbors are now growing big grapefruits thatI’d put up against Florida-grown fruit,” he said. “Maybe now I’lltry to grow a pineapple.”Pineapple plants can be potted and easily brought indoors, too,Fonseca said.last_img read more

Serie A: Sarri set for Napoli return, Rome prepares for fiery derby

first_img Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata is desperate to end his three-match goal drought since returning from injury. (Sarri set for emotional Napoli return, Rome prepares for fiery derby) – https://t.co/cCKh3oRHZQJuventus’ Italian c …KonnyNews App – pic.twitter.com/09HkidO9vx— KonnyNews (@KonnyNews) January 23, 2020 Read Also:Inter Milan reveal what is delaying Victor Moses’ announcement -report The 28-year-old scored six league goals in seven games before being sidelined for three months with a thigh injury. It is the former Sampdoria forward’s longest stretch without scoring since his first goal for Atalanta back in November 2018. Key stats 50 – Atalanta’s league goals scored in 20 games 27 – Napoli’s points deficit to Juventus 23 – Ciro Immobile’s league goals for Lazio this season 12 – Ronaldo’s goals in last eight games 3 – Maurizio Sarri’s seasons as Napoli coach Fixtures (all times GMT) Friday Brescia v AC Milan (1945) Saturday SPAL v Bologna (1400), Fiorentina v Genoa (1700), Torino v Atalanta (1945) Sunday Inter Milan v Cagliari (1130), Hellas Verona v Lecce, Parma v Udinese, Sampdoria v Sassuolo (1400), Roma v Lazio (1700), Napoli v Juventus (1945) FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri said he expects an emotional return to his former club Napoli on Sunday as Lazio and Roma prepare for a derby clash in Serie A after both capital-city sides exited the Italian Cup during the week. Maurizio Sarri returns to Napoli, the club he coached for three seasons until 2018 Sarri missed Juventus’ home game against Napoli with pneumonia in August and Sunday’s game at the Stadio San Paolo will be his first since leaving the club in 2018 before his move to Chelsea. “It will be a tremendously difficult game, emotionally it will be particularly special. My relationship with Naples and above all the city was strong,” said Sarri, after Juve reached the Italian Cup semi-finals with a 3-1 win over Roma on Wednesday. Juventus are top of the league with a four-point lead on second-placed Inter Milan, but Napoli – Serie A runners-up in the past two seasons – are struggling in 11th position, 14 points off the Champions League places. “We must not look at their position in the table,” Sarri continued. “They have a strong team. They are going through a difficult time but have good players. “There are three points at stake.” Napoli lost 4-3 in the reverse fixture this season. But the team are a shadow of the eye-catching side Sarri left in May 2018 to be replaced by Carlos Ancelotti. Ancelotti helped the team maintain their runners-up position last campaign but was replaced at the troubled side by Gennaro Gattuso last month. Gattuso has lost four of his five Serie A games in charge and the club have not won at home in the league since October 19. Duvan Zapata scored 23 goals last season to lift Atalanta into the Champions League for the first time Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 12 goals in his last eight gamesBut they have been boosted by booking their ticket to the Italian Cup semi-finals with a 1-0 win over in-form Lazio this week. “We played with hunger, character and the right spirit, showing real grit, something we had been lacking up till now,” said Gattuso. “Now of course we need to keep it up, to climb back up the table.” Second-placed Inter Milan are at home against sixth-placed Cagliari this weekend, after their title bid was stalled with back-to-back draws. Lazio – on a club record 11-match league winning streak – are third, six points behind Juventus with a game in hand, and two adrift of Inter ahead of the Rome derby. Paulo Fonseca’s Roma are seven points behind their city rivals in the final Champions League berth. The teams played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture in September, and last season had a win each. Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio are pushing for a first Scudetto since 2000, after crashing out of the Italian Cup, which they won last season. Flagging Atalanta, in fifth, travel to Torino, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s eighth-placed AC Milan visit Brescia on Friday looking to edge closer to the Europa League places. Brescia striker Mario Balotelli will miss the game against his former club after being handed a two-match ban for arguing with the referee last weekend.

Baggies tracking Anelka

first_imgWest Brom boss Steve Clarke is monitoring Nicolas Anelka’s situation as he attempts to bolster his striking options. Press Association The 34-year-old Frenchman is a free agent after his short-term contract at Juventus expired, and it is understood the Baggies have registered an interest in him. Clarke and Anelka know each other from their time together at Chelsea where the Scot was part of the coaching set-up for the first nine months of Anelka’s stay at Stamford Bridge. center_img Anelka has enjoyed an eventful career, which began as a trainee at Paris St Germain, from where he was snapped up for a bargain £500,000 by Arsenal in February 1997. He spent two-and-a-half years in North London before making a £23million switch to Real Madrid, and has since had spells at PSG, Liverpool, Manchester City, Fenerbahce, Bolton, Chelsea, Shanghai Shenhua and Juve. Anelka has 69 international caps to his name, although his involvement with France was effectively ended by an 18-game ban imposed over a row with then coach Raymond Domenech during a stormy 2010 World Cup finals campaign. West Brom’s frontline is currently in a state of flux with Romelu Lukaku having returned to parent club Chelsea after his loan spell and Shane Long having entered the final year of his contract with no extension agreed. The club has been linked with a series of targets, including Czech Republic international Matej Vydra and Wigan’s Franco Di Santo, while the name of Lille’s Salomon Kalou is the latest to feature on the rumour mill. last_img read more
