These FTSE 100 shares’ prices have seen double-digit rises in 2 weeks. I’d buy them now

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Manika Premsingh | Wednesday, 11th November, 2020 Image source: Getty Images 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.

Towards the end of last week, I had flagged three FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy in November. My reasoning was that they are quite cheap. It appears that other investors thought so as well. A little over two weeks since I said that, all their share prices have shown double-digit growth. The Biden bounce and the hope of finally overcoming Covid-19 have led to a stock market rally, lifting fortunes of these stocks as well. ITV and DS Smith rallyThe biggest gainer among them is the FTSE 100 media company ITV, whose share price is up over 20% since. There’s little other news on the broadcaster until tomorrow, when it releases its trading update. I doubt if it would have returned to health given the sorry state of the economy and the tentative state of business. The outlook may also only be cautiously optimistic considering that we are back in lockdown in England. Yet, 2021 promises to be a better year, which could bode well for ITV, continuing to make it a stock I’d buy this month. 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…The FTSE 100 packaging provider DS Smith is the next biggest gainer, with close to 15% gain in share price since late October. Its upbeat trading update in the interim has undoubtedly added to the buoyancy in share price. According to CEO Miles Roberts: “We continue to be excited by the underlying drivers of demand…together with our focus on cost efficiency and cash generation, give us confidence in the business going forward.”  This, along with the fact that it has reiterated its decision to pay a half-year dividend, makes it an attractive stock for me to buy even now. Glencore’s close behindLastly, the FTSE 100 mining giant Glencore has also seen a 10% plus increase in share price. It too posted a production update since I last wrote about it, which showed an increase in production in the latest quarter on a sequential basis as the impact of Covid-19 reduced. It has maintained its production guidance for 2020 across all products, except coal. GLEN has its share of problems besides coronavirus, which include graft charges that threaten to derail its share price recovery. At the same time, the commodity cycle has clearly turned upwards with China’s fiscal stimulus and growth driving metals demand. Even with lower production, its financials may still be stable to growing as industrial metals’ prices stay strong. Other FTSE 100 optionsBesides these three, I think new buying opportunities have opened up among FTSE 100 components. While the market rally has driven up prices of long-battered stocks, some of the high-flyers are now seeing a sharp drop in share price. But, being fundamentally sound companies, I reckon it’s only a matter of time before they bounce back. I’m talking about the likes of Ocado, Just Eat Takeaway and London Stock Exchange Group. These are all good stocks at any point in time, but I think this good buying window might be a small one.  Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Manika Premsinghcenter_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Wales v New Zealand: The Preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Ready to roar: will it be Richie McCaw celebrating tomorrow night or Wales’ Shaun Edwards and Alex Cuthbert?By Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIT’S 59 long years since Wales beat the All Blacks, but right now the more glaring statistic is that they have lost five straight Internationals. A three-Test tour to Australia is tough, but Wales actually proved more competitive Down Under than they have in their two recent matches at the Millennium Stadium. With criticism at a high and confidence at a low, the visit of the world champions probably couldn’t have come at a worst time. Or has it? Wales thrive with the underdogs tag and when they’re under pressure – but is a win over New Zealand a realistic possibility?Talking pointsShaun Edwards’s comments post-World Cup about Wales having a good chance against the All Blacks had they made the final have caused a stink this week, the Kiwis challenging Wales to prove their point. In fairness, New Zealand hardly stormed their way to lifting the Webb Ellis Cup and Wales probably could have caused them problems.It’s a different story 13 months on. The All Blacks have upped their game significantly and are miles ahead of the rest of the world, while Wales’ form dipped dramatically in their defeats by Argentina and Samoa.Winging in: Liam WilliamsMissing VIPs (Very Important Players)Both sides have lost players this week – George North being ruled out by a hip injury and Dan Carter pulling out because of ankle trouble. Liam Williams comes in for North. He’s a very exciting runner but is more used to playing full-back so the All Blacks are sure to target him defensively. The same can be said of Carter’s stand-in Aaron Cruden: he’s extremely gifted but Jamie Roberts will be licking his lips at the thought of running down the diminutive fly-half’s channel.Perhaps the key absentee, however, is Adam Jones: Wales rock on the tighthead. Tony Woodcock is one of the best looseheads in the game and will be keen to give Aaron Jarvis another lesson in the rigours of Test rugby.Space invaders NOT FOR FEATURED The key for Wales is trying to contain the All Blacks. We all know the Kiwis are the most dangerous attacking side in the world, but if Sam Warburton and Co can close down their runners they will struggle to find their groove.Run at Richie McCaw so he’s caught up making the tackle rather than trying to steal a turnover; chase kicks hard and put pressure on the All Blacks in their own 22 so they don’t have the room to counter and are forced to kick clear; retain possession, even if it means a series of pick-and-gos, as even New Zealand can’t score without the ball. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?!Verdict: Expect an improved Wales performance but NZ will still be a class apart. The All Blacks by ten.WALES v NEW ZEALAND, Saturday 24 November, Millennium Stadium, 5.15pm, Live on BBC2Can he kick it? All Black Aaron CrudenWALES: Leigh Halfpenny; Alex Cuthbert, Jonathan Davies, Jamie Roberts, Liam Williams; Rhys Priestland, Mike Phillips; Paul James, Matthew Rees, Aaron Jarvis, Bradley Davies, Luke Charteris, Ryan Jones, Sam Warburton (capt), Toby Faletau.Replacements: Ken Owens, Gethin Jenkins, Scott Andrews, Aaron Shingler, Justin Tipuric, Tavis Knoyle, James Hook, Scott Williams.NEW ZEALAND: Israel Dagg; Cory Jane, Conrad Smith, Ma’a Nonu, Julian Savea; Aaron Cruden, Aaron Smith; Tony Woodcock, Andrew Hore, Owen Franks, Luke Romano, Sam Whitelock, Liam Messam, Richie McCaw (capt), Kieran Read.

Jason Robinson classic try against Italy in 2004

first_imgThursday Aug 5, 2010 Jason Robinson classic try against Italy in 2004 World Cup winner Jason Robinson recently announced that he is to come out of retirement to play rugby for Flyde, a team three tiers below the Premiership. Today we get a chance to relive the Robinson magic, as we take a look back at a great try from 2004. After retiring in 2007, Robinson had a stint at coaching with Sale last season, and within only three months of being head coach at the club, hes shocked the rugby world by announcing that hell be playing for Flyde, a team that compete in National League Two North. Robinson will be joining former England coach Brian Ashton, who himself has recently returned to the club as a coaching consultant. A star in both League and Union, 36 year old Robinson is keen to lace up the boots again and get out there. “This is not a publicity stunt for me,” he insisted. “If I wanted to I could have gone on and played in the Premiership. I know I am going to be a marked man and I am sure the opposition will be looking to see if they can put a big shot on me. That is all part of the game. My body is in good shape and if I didn’t think I could do anything, then I wouldn’t be wasting my time here. “I said I would never get into coaching and last season with Sale reaffirmed the reasons why. It was stressful and it opened my eyes to a lot of things. Some people you think you know and some people you are surprised with, but all in all it was a great experience. “But I don’t want to have certain pressures upon me and the role I am taking up now will be more about me and what I can deliver rather than other people.” Coach Ashton said stated that Fylde have signed ‘the best full-back in the country’. “Rugby is not a one-man game but if there is any player that I have ever dealt with who can galvanise a whole team then it is Jason Robinson,” Ashton said. “He is a freak of rugby because I don’t think anyone has played the game like him before and I don’t think anyone else will play it like him again.” Heres a great try from 2004 when Billy Whizz scored a hat trick against Italy, earning him the man of the match award on the day. He may never reach those heights again, but one thing is certain the attendances at Fylde home matches are sure to rise with Robinson on the park.Time: 0:59 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

On receipt of this letter and for fear of a long and costly legal action being launched against him, Pradyuman Maheshwari decided to shut down his blog.”After examining the offending articles, it seems to us that this journalist was only exercising his right to comment on and criticise your group’s commercial strategy and, more generally, his right to freedom of expression.”Moreover, as a media owner, you can easily imagine that such a step could have harmful consequences for free expression. It could effectively dissuade other website managers from handling business news, which they have every right to do.”Against a background in which bloggers are being harassed and imprisoned in all four corners of the world, this type of step on the part of a media firm appears to us misplaced. We are ready to discuss this case with you at your convenience”.A law firm engaged by the Times of India wrote to Pradyuman Maheshwari on 5 March 2005, instructing him to remove 19 articles posted online that it considered “defamatory” and likely to “tarnish the image” of the press group.After receiving this letter, Maheshwari decided, on 10 March, to close his weblog. “I think that I would win a possible defamation case against the Times of India. But I am only one journalist against a powerful press group. If they act against my blog on future occasions, sooner or later, I will have to close it. I prefer to anticipate any problems in advance and shut down this publication,” he told Reporters Without Borders.Documents relating to the case, including the letter from the Times of India’s lawyers, can be read on mediaha.blogspot.com.

It was only the 13th time in the last 62 months that the portfolio has expanded dating back to January 2010, at the height of the foreclosure wave.The serious delinquency rate on loans declined by 5 basis points, down to 1.81 percent, which is less than half of the national rate, according to CoreLogic’s January 2015 National Foreclosure Report. It is the lowest serious delinquency rate for loans backed by Freddie Mac since December 2008, just a few months after the housing crisis began and just three months after the FHFA took Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under conservatorship. For that month, the serious delinquency rate was 1.72 percent but was on the rise; it was 1.52 percent a month earlier.Single-family refinance loan purchase and guarantee volume skyrocketed in February up to $20.2 billion, up from $12.4 billion in January. The percentage of single-family refinance loan purchase and guarantee volume that comprised the total single-family mortgage portfolio also experienced a large month-over-month increase from 57 percent in January to 66 percent in February. According to Freddie Mac, 9 percent of the Enterprise’s total single-family refinance volume in February was comprised of relief refinance mortgages, down from 14 percent in January.The number of homeowners who received permanent loan modifications was little changed from January (4,793) to February (4,684), with 9.477 permanent loan modifications completed in the first two months of 2015 combined. An average of 5,596 permanent loan mods were completed per month in 2014.Also in February’s Monthly Volume Summary, Freddie Mac reported that the aggregate unpaid principal balance (UPB) of the Enterprise’s mortgage-related investments portfolio declined month-over-month by about $3.2 billion. Since the previous monthly volume summary was issued, Freddie Mac auctioned off three pools of deeply delinquent loans with an aggregate UPB of $392 million and was reported to have put another group of deeply delinquent loans with a UPP of $1 billion up for sale.
