A March buy! I like this FTSE 100 stock with a 9-year rising share price

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. A stock I’m tempted to buy this March is Rentokil Initial (LSE:RTO), for its defensive nature and high-quality brand.As it stands, the Rentokil share price is not cheap, with a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 33, and that’s little wonder with so many positive attributes. It’s a global favourite for pest-control and hygiene products with an admired brand that’s instantly recognizable in dozens of countries. Its hygiene division offers a wide range of products that can be found in public and private washrooms internationally.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…Disease preventionProtecting against the dangers of pest-borne disease and the risks associated with poor hygiene is the purpose of the Rentokil Initial business. It stands to reason that its services will be called to fight the ongoing spread of coronavirus and other issues magnified by public health worry.  The long-term demand for pest control services has been steadily increasing as a result of climate change, workplace regulations, and growing urbanisation. More recently, the coronavirus outbreak has instilled fear and panic, so hygiene is likely to be of increasing importance to many individuals, companies, and governments around the world.Rentokil is already in the business of assisting in these areas and is well placed to further expand and grow.ExpansionRentokil has continued to forge ahead with mergers and acquisitions, which have increased its presence and brought its extensive knowledge and experience to new locations. North America boasts the world’s largest pest control market and is where Rentokil’s key focus is on growing. In 2019, it acquired 14 pest control businesses in North America, including Florida Pest Control. This top-20 pest control business with annualised revenues of $66m was acquired for £50m.Through its 2018 mergers and acquisitions programme, the group acquired 47 businesses, 42 of which were in pest control. In 2019 it continued this trend by acquiring a further 41 businesses; 30 in pest control, 8 in hygiene and 3 in its protect & enhance line of business. Globally the pest control market is worth an estimated £15bn, increasing annually at 5%.Aside from the virus outbreak, the world continues to suffer daily from the effects of climate change and other challenges. East Africa is suffering from the worst locust plague in 70 years, caused by heavy rainfall and cyclones, which is devastating food security. All this points to future demand for services such as pest control and hygiene.Corporate social responsibilityRentokil runs several initiatives to meet its corporate responsibilities, including a bid to stamp out malaria, through mosquito control in Africa, Asia, and other tropical regions. It’s also on a mission to balance its carbon footprint and improve lives through charitable and community support with schemes such as bed bug treatments for orphanages in developing countries.Positive financial metricsRentokil Initial offers a dividend yield of 1% with earnings per share (EPS) at 15p and EPS growth of 29%. The company doesn’t have high debt and looks to be financially stable.Its 2019 preliminary results, released at the end of February, showed growth in all its operating regions. Adjusted pre-tax profit was up 10.7% to approximately £341m and revenue was up £2.7bn. It also achieved its highest level of annual growth in 15 years at 4.5%.I think Rentokil Initial is a good addition to any long-term portfolio, and I think it will continue to reap rewards for shareholders in 2020 and beyond.

Lions 2013: Should the Force be weakened?

first_img Once in a lifetime: Jim Williams says the chance to play the Lions is an opportunity not to be missedBy Alan DymockWHEN ONE former Wallaby was asked whether he would be happy to be a senior Western Force player rested for today’s clash with the British and Irish Lions he responded with: “No way in Hell!”In 2001 Jim Williams and his ACT Brumbies played the Lions in a mid-week match between the first and second Tests. They had just come off the back of a Super Rugby title two months before – the first time a side outside of New Zealand had ruled SANZAR – and they were missing their major names. They were knackered but they came close to walloping the Lions, with the game finishing 28-30.Playing days: Williams in action for MunsterThe former Munster and Brumby back-row explained that head coach Michael Foley’s position is difficult because the Force knew the Lions would be coming for over a year and that although they have a game with the Waratahs four days later, they realistically have no shot of making any playoffs.“There is no way I would miss the Lions game,” Williams said. “Not even if I had a game the next day.“What a lot of people don’t appreciate is that most of the players won’t be around in 12 years. Plus, you should want to put your best team out. You should want to give the Lions a tough game because it works both ways: the Lions may be match hardened but you can wear them down.”Williams did explain that, in the Force’s case, facing the Lions presented a challenge beyond the means of the province. While in 2001 there were only three franchises with great depth of personnel, this year there are five and playing resources are stretched across Australia. Too many players with extended or development contracts could be brought in for Lions games.He foresees a greater challenge coming from Queensland Reds, Waratahs and Brumbies against the tourists, but he is at pains to explain that there will be inexperience on the field in the build-up matches. What everyone wants is for the pre-Test matches to be exciting, hard fought and well supported. It is already clear that the Lions are not exactly top billing in the country yet, with the State of Origin kicking off at the same time and Australia trying to qualify for the Football World Cup, but Williams assures the rest of the planet that as soon as the Lions matches properly kick off, Australia will come to life.Pinnacle: Wililams won 14 Wallabies capsExcitement is what every fan yearns for. In ’01 Williams’ Brumbies were a kick away from toppling a star-studded side.“The conditions were perfect and I was just so impressed with the quality of footy,” he recalls. “There was running rugby and a nice open game, which the Brumbies were prepared for, and there was some animosity between Justin Harrison and Austin Healey. Nothing was staged; there was a genuine dislike.“In that game the intensity of the Brumbies lifted, and although the Lions had the mind-set and experience to win, the quality from the province was top-class and we had a chance to win.”For the Heineken Cup winner, mind-set will make the difference against the Lions for every Aussie team.If the provinces become have-a-go heroes and run “all over the paddock” while adapting to the Lions pragmatic style they can hurt them, according to Williams. Every team must be physical and slow down recycled ball. He also sees the Wallabies struggling in the first Test, much like they did when they were “touched up” by France when they last came calling. However, once Australia’s players get a taste for Test rugby again, Williams believes they can play in the right areas and win the remaining two matches to clinch the series.It would do the Wallabies a big favour if the provinces were to soften the Lions up a bit first. The Force have promised they will, but with their selections they may fall short. NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Police try to search Moscow weekly for sources to story about elite unit

It drew an immediate denial from Omon followed by the libel action.The New Times report (in Russian): http://newtimes.ru/articles/detail/14721?phrase_id=292957last_img read more

Laurie Hernandez talks new children’s book, announces she’s training for 2020 Olympics

first_img Written by October 11, 2018 /Sports News – National Laurie Hernandez talks new children’s book, announces she’s training for 2020 Olympics FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — Two-time Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez is returning to gymnastics.The 18-year-old made the announcement on “Good Morning America” Thursday, saying she is “currently training.”“Crossing your fingers for 2020,” Hernandez said of the future Olympics, which will be held in Tokyo.Besides winning a gold and silver medal, Hernandez has a new children’s book out titled, “She’s Got This.” The name of the book is inspired by the gymnast visibly reciting “I got this” to herself before each event at the U.S. women’s gymnastics team at the 2016 Summer Olympics.“Whenever I’m competing, I’m pretty much terrified before I go up there,” Hernandez said. “And so, it’s making sure that I can calm myself down before I hop onto the equipment. And for me, that’s a lot of self-talk and self-preparation and it’s being my own hype man.”“She’s Got This” is about a gymnast who experiences setbacks, but keeps going.This is the second published book for Hernandez, who also won Season 23 of “Dancing With the Stars.”But that’s not all: Hernandez also has her own Barbie doll.“She has my curls, which is really important to me,” Hernandez said. “When I was little, I always wanted to straighten my hair because I saw everybody had that but now I get to embrace that.”On “GMA,” Hernandez also showed adorable young fans in the audience how to appropriately stick a landing.“She’s Got This” is available now.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
