See all posts by Alan Oscroft Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 30th December, 2020 | More on: PSN TW 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.center_img Back in March, when the Covid-19 pandemic was crushing Persimmon (LSE: PSN) and Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) shares, I really didn’t think I’d end up saying this. But, barring a last-minute catastrophe, the Persimmon share price looks set to beat the FTSE 100 in 2020. And by a decent margin too.While the index is down around 12.5% at the time of writing, Persimmon is up more than 5%. Taylor Wimpey shareholders have not been so fortunate, mind, sitting on a 14% fall year-to-date. But I think the Taylor Wimpey share price is the more undervalued of the two. And I see a real hope for a much better 2021.5G 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…I wasn’t too surprised to see housebuilder shares plunge in the early days of the crisis. It was disappointing, though, as they’d started the year strongly. The lockdowns did, unsurprisingly, have an adverse effect on the business. When you’re stuck at home, or can only go out for essentials, moving house is tricky, to say the least.But before I look more closely at the Persimmon share price, and at Taylor Wimpey, there’s a lesson that the events of 2020 have reinforced for me. Whatever the short term brings to an industry, or to the whole economy or stock market, it won’t derail long-term forces.In this case, we have a chronic housing shortage in the UK. It goes back as long as I can remember. There has always seemed to be some politician or other going on about the pressing need for affordable homes. And bemoaning the shortage that’s making it ever harder for people to buy a home of their own.Persimmon share price recoveryAt the first glint of a break in lockdown rules, people were rushing back to Taylor Wimpey, to Persimmon, and the rest, and eyeing up new homes. And since a 2020 low point in March, the Persimmon share price has more than doubled. The Taylor Wimpey share price hasn’t done quite so well overall. But since its low point, which came in September, it has climbed 70%. And I think that’s just the start of the recovery.But what might 2021 hold for these FTSE 100 housebuilders? Well, my Motley Fool colleague Paul Summers has pointed out a number of factors that could contribute to a housing slowdown in 2021. I agree that those are real fears, and that they could indeed put pressure on the Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon share prices.Trading updatesPersimmon and Taylor Wimpey should deliver trading updates in January. Based on what we have seen so far, I expect them to be upbeat and to have a positive effect on share prices. But thinking about both sets of potential short-term share price drivers brings me back to that lesson from 2020 again. The long-term outlook for a business is what matters. And that will surely overcome any short-term jitters. The Persimmon share price has done well, but I’d still buy both and stash them away for 20 years. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Alan Oscroft owns shares of Persimmon.

Tesco’s share price has fallen. Should I buy the stock now?

first_img FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Tesco (LSE: TSCO) shares have produced disappointing returns recently. Since late January, its share price has fallen from near 250p to 226p. Meanwhile, over the last 12 months, TSCO is down almost 10%.Has this share price weakness created a buying opportunity for me? Let’s take a look at the investment case.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…Has Tesco’s share price fall created a buying opportunity?When analysing a stock, one of the first things I look at is the company’s long-term growth potential. Growth is important because it’s the main driver of the company’s share price over the long run. Growth can also impact a company’s ability to consistently pay dividends.Looking at Tesco, I’m not convinced there’s a lot of long-term growth potential. According to Global Data, the UK supermarket industry is expected to grow just 15% in total between 2019 and 2024. That equates to 2.8% annually. Meanwhile, City analysts expect Tesco to generate revenue growth of just 1.2% in the year to 29 February 2022.It’s also worth pointing out that the supermarket industry is highly competitive. Not only is Tesco facing competition from the likes of Aldi, Lidl, and Ocado (which just had a great quarter) but now there’s Amazon to contend with. The online shopping giant has been capturing market share in recent years. And, according to The Sunday Times, it will be launching over 10 Amazon Go convenience stores across the UK in the near future, with a potential further 20 to follow.Does Tesco have an edge over the competition that can help it protect its market share? Looking at market share trends in recent years, I’m not sure it does.FinancialsTurning to the financials, there are some positives and negatives. Tesco’s profits are anticipated to rise next year. Earnings per share (EPS) are predicted to rise to 23.1p from 13.8p. That’s encouraging.However, Tesco’s return on capital employed (ROCE) – a key measure of profitability – has been quite low in recent years. Over the last three years, it’s averaged just 6.7%. I like companies that are more profitable than this.On the dividend front, a prospective yield of about 4% does look relatively attractive in today’s low-interest environment. That said, Tesco doesn’t have a long-term dividend growth track record as it cancelled its dividend a few years ago. I like to invest in companies that have consistently increased their dividends (Unilever and Diageo are some good examples).Overall, I’m not blown away by Tesco’s financials.ValuationZooming in on the valuation, I do think Tesco shares sport a reasonable valuation at present. If it can deliver on the 23.1p per share earnings forecast (that’s just an estimate, remember), the stock’s forward-looking P/E ratio is just 9.8. That’s quite low. By contrast, the FTSE 100’s median forward-looking P/E is 17.2. So, as a value play, Tesco shares could offer some appeal.Tesco shares: my view Weighing everything up, I don’t see enough appeal in Tesco shares to invest right now. The stock looks relatively cheap. However, I think there are other stocks I could buy – with more long-term growth potential. Ones that are better fit for my portfolio.

Juan De Jongh’s big hit breaks Ben Tapuai’s collarbone

first_imgSunday Apr 22, 2012 Juan De Jongh’s big hit breaks Ben Tapuai’s collarbone The Reds’ nightmare injury toll continued this weekend as they lost another two backs during the 23-13 loss to the travelling Stormers. One of the injuries came from this great hit by Stormers center Juan De Jongh.The Stormers got their season back on track with another win, the first by a South African team in Brisbane for three years. While they themselves were missing Springboks Shalk Burger, Jean De Villiers, and Andries Bekker to injury, it’s the Reds that have been hit hardest this season.With Quade Cooper still out and a string of backup playmakers injured, the Reds were relying on young Sam Lane, from Cape Town and playing against some old school mates, to steer the ship.That plan went belly-up in the first few minutes of the game as he badly damaged his knee when attempting a jinking step. He is set to undergo his second knee reconstruction in a year.“Sam has done his anterior and lateral ligaments. It couldn’t get much worse for a knee,” said Reds caoch Ewen McKenzie. Five minutes later centre Ben Tapuai hobbled off after he was smashed by little Juan De Jongh, owing no favours to the proverbial hospital pass from Radike Samo.“You lose two backs in the first 10 minutes and it’s a challenge. We fought pretty hard and still had our moments but were not polished enough to take them,” added McKenzie, who said that they’ll have to go looking for players again, something they’ve become accustomed to this season.The good news is that Digby Ioane, who was out with suspension for a dangerous tackle, will be back next week. Lane however will be out for the rest of the season, and Tapuai out for 10 weeks with a broken collarbone, ruling him out of possible selection for the Wallaby’s midyear Tests.Highlights of this game, and others, will be archived soonADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgThursday Dec 11, 2014 NEW T-Shirt – Peace and Love, I just don’t like C*nts On Sunday Toulon prop and former Leicester Tigers player, Martin Castrogiovanni had a full go at former boss Richard Cockerill, calling him all sorts of names. He showed that despite English not being his first language, he has a pretty extensive vocabulary. Now, thanks to a bit of demand and some quickfire work, we’ve put together a T-shirt for it.There were probably a number of quotes that could have been used, but we picked this one and included an image of a similarlarly hairy f*cking guy [read the original rant and quotes here].With Xmas just around the corner, grab it quick and celebrate the profoundness of the sentiment.  It’s available in different colours, as a hoodie, crewneck sweathshirt, baseball shirt and of course, as a mug. All great gifts so take a look and while you’re there, please check out our other designs as we’re confident that you’ll find something that will make a great gift this holiday season.ADVERTISEMENTCastrogiovanni’s words, and the T-Shirt design, haven’t gone unnoticed by teammates, so it looks like we’ll see the man himself – and half of the Toulon side – in one of these shirts soon.
