3 reasons why I think today’s cheap stocks could soar in a post-pandemic world

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 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. 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. Peter Stephens | Saturday, 24th October, 2020 See all posts by Peter Stephens “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The prospects for many cheap stocks continue to be relatively uncertain. The coronavirus pandemic has continued over recent months, and may persist over the short run.This may mean that investors experience paper losses in the coming months. However, buying undervalued shares now could be a shrewd move.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…Their low prices, track record of recovery and the presence of major stimulus packages may boost their returns in a post-pandemic world.Buying cheap stocks todayThe ongoing threat of a second stock market crash means there are many cheap stocks available to buy today. Investor risk aversion has continued to be relatively high of late. As such, many sectors face a continued period of weak sales and profit growth.Buying such companies now may be viewed as a risky move by some investors. And, while there’s scope for paper losses in the short run, their long-term prospects appear to be bright. Low share prices mean a wide margin of safety may be included in their valuation. This may provide greater scope for capital growth, which could catalyse your portfolio in the long run.Furthermore, many cheap stocks are undervalued because of weak investor sentiment towards the wider equity market. Therefore, some high-quality businesses may be trading on unjustly low valuations that don’t reflect their future potential. They may offer scope for high capital returns as the economy recovers.Track record of recoveryEven though cheap stocks may deliver disappointing performances in the short run, their long-term prospects appear to be sound. The stock market has a strong track record of recovering from even its very worst downturns to post new record highs. Therefore, investors who purchase stocks when they’re trading at a low ebb can benefit from its turnaround prospects.For example, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 have experienced numerous bear markets over recent decades. They include the dot com crash, the global financial crisis and the 2020 market crash. They have still been able to produce high single-digit annualised returns that appear to be very achievable over the coming years.Stimulus packagesAnother reason why cheap stocks can surge in the next decade is the stimulus packages being implemented in major economies across the world. Policymakers across North America, Europe and many other parts of the world are seeking to support the economy through a variety of measures. These include low interest rates and asset purchase programmes.Such programmes have a solid track record of stimulating asset prices. This was evidenced in the decade-long bull market that followed the global financial crisis. Therefore, even if the economic outlook is tough at the present time, buying undervalued shares today could be a means of benefitting from favourable policy action over the long run.

At about four for Bective. My older brother, Cian, was playing and I got into it.What positions did you play? I was in the backs and slowly transitioned – wing, centre, back-row, then front-row. I’ve been at hooker since I was 16.What do you like about the position? You’re like a fourth back-row on the pitch – you get your hands on the ball and have to be defensively strong.Did you play other sports growing up? Lots – Gaelic football, tennis, basketball. The school I was in, St Michael’s College, is a big rugby school and everyone played, so from the age of six I’d be out playing rugby after school with friends.MORE RUGBY WORLD HOTSHOTS RW VERDICT: A mature prospect.

He’s been with us since the start of the journey.What are your strengths? Ball-carrying and defence. Those would be my points of difference and what I try to work on.Do you get to work with senior players at Leinster? I bounce ideas off Richardt Strauss. We train with the seniors two or three times a week. It’s cool to see how they manage their bodies and prepare. There are good learnings I can implement into my life.What are your goals for the rest of the season? Individually, I’d love to get capped by Leinster. That’s a big goal.

Scotland snatch win with late penalty against Argentina in Cordoba

first_imgSaturday Jun 21, 2014 Scotland snatch win with late penalty against Argentina in Cordoba Scotland’s Duncan Weir slotted a late penalty in Cordoba to give them a 21-19 away win against Argentina and maintain new coach Vern Cotter’s unbeaten run. They now head to South Africa where they will take on the Springboks in a one-off Test next weekend. After scraping through against Canada last weekend, and beating the USA before that, this was Scotland’s third successive win under Cotter. They were made to work hard for it though, trailing 19-10 with ten minutes left before replacement Henry Pyrgos scored in the 73rd minute. Weir kicked a late penalty to seal the win, after having missed a chance shortly before that.The Pumas had controlled the match after Stuart Hogg scored early on, and scored tries of their own through flanker Javier Ortega Desio and Joaquin Tuculet.Argentina’s side weren’t full strength but have been impressive against both Scotland and Ireland, so will take heart ahead of the the upcoming Rugby Championship.After the hooter Nicolas Sanchez had an attempt at a drop goal but failed to get it on target.“It was a tough game and we had to find the resources at the end to come back and win,” said coach Cotter, who now takes his side to South Africa for another lift in intensity and a meeting with the Springboks, who have just beaten Wales 2-0 in their latest series.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

TCU tops Texas fourth year in a row, 24-7

He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ ReddIt TCU running back Darius Anderson runs for a 31-yard touchdown against Texas. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto. Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J. Collier printThe Horned Frogs rebounded Saturday in Fort Worth with a 24-7 win over the Texas Longhorns as TCU is now 5-1 against them since joining the Big 12.TCU has defeated Texas 153-33 in total points over the last four seasons.“They’re the standard through the years historically for us,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “T hat’s the way we look at it. So we’re working to stay above the standard. When you play someone in-state for recruiting, they can say whatever they want to, but you have to be able to back it up on the field simple as that.”Patterson’s defense backed up the Horned Frogs on the field against the Longhorns, limiting Tom Herman’s squad to seven points, totaling seven sacks, including two from defensive end Ben Banogu, and allowing just nine rushing yards.Stopping the run has been at the foundation of the TCU defense all season long. This was the third time this season the TCU defense has allowed less than 25 yards, and the Horned Frogs entered the game first in the Big 12 and third in the NCAA in rushing defense at 77.2 yards per game. This game lowered that number to 69.7.“We’re doing a good job stopping the run,” TCU defensive end Ty Summers said. The reason for the Horned Frogs stout run defense Patterson said is options of players.“The depth of rotating four guys at the front has really helped us,” Patterson said. “A couple of the sacks happened tonight with the 2’s in.”Offensively, TCU turned it on early, scoring on three of its first four possessions with Kyle Hicks finding the end zone on a couple of touchdown runs that gave the Horned Frogs a 17-0 lead.Hicks scored on a 1-yard run to finish a nine-play opening drive that involved a wrinkle in the “WildFrog” Formation. On a fourth and two from the UT 21, TCU lined up in the WildFrog with running back Sewo Olonilua at quarterback. Instead of diving up the middle like they had all season, TCU hit Texas with a wrinkle. Olonilua took the snap and handed the ball to wide receiver KaVontae Turpin on a reverse toward the right sideline who then hit Olonilua across the field for a 20-yard gain down to the TCU one. Hicks capped off the drive with a one-yard plunge into the end zone on the following play and did so once again on a 14-yard run in the second quarter.TCU running back Darius Anderson’s 31-yard touchdown dash on fourth-and-1 with 4:23 left put the game out of reach for the Longhorns.“You don’t have to throw it all that much if we can run it like that,” TCU quarterback Kenny Hill said after throwing for only 26 yards in the second half, 146 total.Hill hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass in the last two games, but he improved on his performance last week in Ames by taking care of the ball after turning the ball over three times in the loss at Iowa State.Up NextThe Horned Frog’s next task is the Oklahoma Sooners who are coming off a 62-52 win over No. 11 Oklahoma State in Stillwater. Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield threw for 598 yards and five touchdowns, Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson ran for 111 yards and a touchdown and Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown caught nine passes for 265 yards and touchdowns.“We got Oklahoma next weekend, an opportunity to stay at one loss, and quite a challenge to be honest with you as Baker Mayfield is playing really well,” Patterson said. “They’re just good on offense, plain and simple.”TCU heads to Norman for a showdown with Oklahoma Nov. 11.

New Caltech Dean of Graduate Studies Named

first_img More Cool Stuff Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Credit: Bob PazOn July 1, 2015, Doug Rees, the Roscoe Gilkey Dickinson Professor of Chemistry, will begin serving as the new dean of graduate studies at Caltech.“Doug’s experience and concern with graduate education make him an ideal choice for dean of graduate studies. I am very pleased that he is willing to make this commitment to the Institute and its students,” says Anneila Sargent, vice president for student affairs and the Ira S. Bowen Professor of Astronomy.As the new dean, Rees will be the principal administrator and representative of Caltech’s graduate education program, responsible for attending to concerns regarding the welfare of graduate students as well as for upholding the Institute’s rules and policies.“There are many groups essential to the effective operation of our graduate program that I want to get to know better, starting with the graduate students, the Graduate Office staff, and the option administrators and option reps,” says Rees. “In my 26 years at Caltech, I’ve gained an appreciation for how the graduate programs in biochemistry and molecular biophysics and in chemistry operate, but the cultures in different options across campus can vary significantly, and I look forward to better understanding these distinctions.”Rees says that he is also very much looking forward to working directly with graduate students, staff, and faculty on behalf of the graduate program. Of particular interest during his tenure will be issues relating to the well-being and professional development of graduate students.“I find research to be an adventure that, while exhilarating, is also challenging, frustrating, and even stressful; those aspects, however, are not incompatible with having a positive student experience and a supportive environment,” Rees says. He adds that his priorities will be to raise fellowship support, increase the diversity of the graduate student body, and ensure that students have access to appropriate support services such as health care, counseling, and day care. “In addition, I also hope to be able to explore mechanisms to better prepare students for life after Caltech, including both academic and nonacademic career options,” he says.In his new post, Rees will take the place of C. L. “Kelly” Johnson Professor of Aeronautics and Mechanical Engineering Joseph Shepherd, who has served as the dean of graduate studies since 2009. “Joe leaves big shoes to fill and the campus owes him a huge debt of gratitude for all he has accomplished as dean of graduate studies. What I have learned from watching him in action over the past six years, and more recently as he has been helping me during this transition period, is that the most important quality for the dean is to care about the students—and I will definitely be working to follow his example,” Rees says.Rees received his undergraduate degree from Yale University in 1974 and his PhD from Harvard in 1980, becoming a professor at Caltech in 1989. An investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Rees also served as the executive officer for chemistry from 2002 to 2006 and the executive officer for biochemistry and molecular biophysics from 2007 to 2015.

Home Values Hit a Low in Suburban U.S.

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Home Values Hit a Low in Suburban U.S. The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Alison Rich has a long-time tenure in the writing and editing realm, touting an impressive body of work that has been featured in local and national consumer and trade publications spanning industries and audiences. She has worked for DS News and MReport magazines—both in print and online—since they launched. Home Values Hit a Low in Suburban U.S. The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago February 8, 2018 1,379 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Over the past several years, many homebuyers have traded big-city living for an abode in the ’burbs. But flash ahead to now, and those same folks may be kicking themselves, at least if they take a look at Zillow’s recent research, which indicates dwellings in suburban locales are less valuable on a per-square-foot basis today than they were a decade ago.According to the report, which gives an analysis of home values in urban, suburban, and rural zones, as of December 2017, the median U.S. suburban home was worth $138 per square foot. Houses in urban markets boast a median value of $315,988, up 8.8 percent from last year. Homes sited in the suburbs, on the other hand, are valued at $234,443 (ahead 6 percent year-over-year) and $157,451 in rural spots (up 5.5 percent from December 206).While per-square-foot values for both urban and rural homes ($231 and $102 per square foot, respectively) have exceeded their pre-recession highs and are currently at new peaks, the current value for suburban homes stands below its prior peak of $140, from October 2006, the report noted.The 127.1 percent disparity between urban and rural housing is now as broad as it has ever been, even outstripping the chasm in existence 10 years ago ahead of the Great Recession, the analysis notes. It represents the biggest difference since at least January 1996 and tops the 124.1 percent gap last felt in October 2006, months before the housing market crested before the housing bust.In parsing the numbers, it’s a matter of how well (or not) different areas of the country have rebounded since that bust, the report indicates. Numerous urban areas benefitted from big businesses setting up shop in their ZIP codes, it adds.The report said that the data provides another illustration of the deep and lasting scars of the recession, as well as how different market segments have fared in the years since then.
