(Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. See all posts by Alan Oscroft I look back over the FTSE 100 and think “Have I missed the stock market recovery?” Since March 2020 in the depths of the crash, the Footsie has gained around 35%. So am I now too late to take advantage of surging share prices?I think looking at the Footsie alone gives a skewed view. It shows what the market has done as a whole, but it’s silent on which stocks might have great recoveries still ahead of them. Look at Rolls-Royce and International Consolidated Airlines (IAG), both hammered by the travel downturn.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…Neither has yet recovered. The Rolls-Royce share price is down around 65% over the past two years, while IAG shares have fallen closer to 70%. So, have I missed the stock market recovery? I haven’t missed a recovery in those two, that’s for sure. I think, in a few years’ time, both will probably have come back strongly. But I reckon there’s still a big risk that they could need more funding, and any potential recovery could be set back even longer.Recovery versus riskThat brings me to a conscious decision I made. I vowed not to invest in shares I considered very risky, no matter how cheap they might look. No, I’d rather wait until I see positive signs of recovery in their underlying businesses. It meant I’d miss some of the biggest share price gains, for sure. But I’m happy to avoid the risk and settle for what I see as safer, if possibly lower, long-term recovery profits. So when I ask “Have I missed the stock market recovery?” the answer is a partial yes, but deliberately as part of risk avoidance.So what am I looking at? I’m after sustainable, progressive, dividends. And I reckon there are plenty of attractive dividend stocks out there still at bargain prices. On that score, I bought some City of London Investment Trust shares. The investment trust has lifted its annual dividend for 54 years in a row, and currently offers a 4.8% yield. Even after a partial stock market recovery, I still see good yields to lock in for the long term.So what can I do to benefit from the recovery?In another sector, I think the banks are still good buys. Their dividends are already coming back. And bank share prices, and valuations, still look depressed to me. There’s always a risk that bad debts will bite harder than feared, and the sector could face a few more weak years. But I reckon that if I buy more bank shares now (I hold Lloyds Banking Group), I’ll still be taking advantage of the longer-term stock market recovery that I see ahead of us.This all brings me to the bigger, long-term, picture. The UK stock market has had a pretty awful decade. And I see the Covid-19 stock market crash as part of a longer-term weak trend for share prices. That might even be part of the reason for the relatively quick short-term recovery — that shares were undervalued to start with.So, I’ll ask myself one last time: Have I missed the recovery? Not really. I’ve missed part of the Covid-19 crash recovery, though I really don’t think all of it. I see a longer-term recovery ahead, and I’ve not missed that.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The French Barbarians level the series, beating Argentina in Resistencia


first_imgTuesday Jun 14, 2011 The French Barbarians level the series, beating Argentina in Resistencia Argentina hosted the French Barbarians for the second in their two match series, after the hosts had won the first game last weekend . This time was the turn of the visitors though, as the Barbarian side took a 21-18 victory to level the series 1-1.Benjamin Lapeyre scored twice while fullback Romain Teulet kicked the rest of the points for the French Barbarians, but did miss three, making the final score a lot closer than it could have been. On the flipside, debutant flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez kicked six from six for Argentina.The Argentina side had changed things up, bringing in 12 changes from the team that won last weekend in Buenos Aires, as they look to use a large squad and work out who the best players are to take to the World Cup in September.Very few of the third placed Rugby World Cup 2007 squad were used over this two match series, with just prop Martin Scelzo turning out on Saturday. Felipe Contepomi, who was such a key figure in last week’s win, wasn’t available for the second game.These highlights are quite short, and in Spanish, but at least give you a quick rundown of the match, and hopefully keeps you up to date with what’s happening preparation wise over there.

Four climate cycles of recurring deep and surface water destabilizations on the Iberian Margin


first_imgCentennial climate variability over the last ice age exhibits clear bipolar behavior. High-resolution analyses of marine sediment cores from the Iberian margin trace a number of associated changes simultaneously. Proxies of sea surface temperature and water mass distribution, as well as relative biomarker content, demonstrate that this typical north-south coupling was pervasive for the cold phases of climate during the past 420,000 years. Cold episodes after relatively warm and largely ice-free periods occurred when the predominance of deep water formation changed from northern to southern sources. These results reinforce the connection between rapid climate changes at Mediterranean latitudes and century-to-millennial variability in northern and southern polar regions.last_img

The impact of föhn winds on surface energy balance during the 2010-11 melt season over Larsen C Ice Shelf, Antarctica


first_imgWe use model data from the Antarctic Mesoscale Prediction System (AMPS), measurements from automatic weather stations and satellite observations to investigate the association between surface energy balance (SEB), surface melt and the occurrence of föhn winds over Larsen C Ice Shelf (Antarctic Peninsula) over the period November 2010 – March 2011. Föhn conditions occurred for over 20% of the time during this period and are associated with increased air temperatures and decreased relative humidity (relative to non-föhn conditions) over the western part of the ice shelf. During föhn conditions, the downward turbulent flux of sensible heat and the downwelling shortwave radiation both increase. However, in AMPS, these warming tendencies are largely balanced by an increase in upward latent heat flux and a decrease in downwelling longwave radiation so the impact of föhn on the modelled net SEB is small. This balance is highly sensitive to the representation of surface energy fluxes in the model and limited validation data suggest that AMPS may underestimate the sensitivity of SEB and melt to föhn. There is broad agreement on the spatial pattern of melt between the model and satellite observations but disagreement in the frequency with which melt occurs. Satellite observations indicate localized regions of persistent melt along the foot of the Antarctic Peninsula mountains which are not simulated by the model. Furthermore, melt is observed to persist in these regions during extended periods when föhn does not occur, suggesting that other factors may be important in controlling melt in these regions.last_img read more

No. 4 Kansas beats BYU 71-56 for spot in Maui title game


first_imgNovember 26, 2019 /Sports News – Local No. 4 Kansas beats BYU 71-56 for spot in Maui title game Associated Press Tags: BYU Cougars Basketball/Kansas Jayhawks/Maui Jim Maui Invitational Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — David McCormack scored 16 points, Ochai Agbaji added 14 and No. 4 Kansas turned a huge second half into a trip to the Maui Invitational title game with a 71-56 victory over Brigham Young on Tuesday night.The Jayhawks (5-1) dominated inside against the smaller Cougars and did a good job of rotating out to their shooters to earn a shot at their third Maui Invitational championship.Kansas opened the second half with a big run to build a double-digit lead and outscored BYU 42-18 in the paint.The Jayhawks will face Dayton in Wednesday’s title game.BYU (4-3) was bothered Kansas’ length on defense, finishing 9 for 33 from behind the 3-point line. TJ Haws had 16 points, but Cougars leading scorer Jake Toolson was held to seven on 3-of-9 shooting.Kansas overwhelmed Division II Chaminade 93-63 in its Maui opener by utilizing its massive size advantage.The also-undersized Cougars used ball movement and perimeter shooting to blow past UCLA 78-63 in their opener.Neither team was particularly efficient offensively early in the semifinals, trading turnovers and clanks on the soft Lahaina Civic Center rims.The Jayhawks found a small semblance of rhythm late in the first half and locked on the Cougars defensively, holding them scoreless for 7½ minutes.BYU finally hit a few shots late and was within 29-27 at halftime.Kansas got on a roll to start the second period by getting the ball inside, opening with a 13-2 run to go up 42-31.The Jayhawks piled on after that with a 19-4 spurt and hit 17 of 32 shots in the second half.BIG PICTUREBYU pulled off one upset by knocking off UCLA in its opener, but had a hard time matching Kansas’ size in the semifinals.The Jayhawks shook off some early ugliness on offense with a dominant second half to earn a shot at adding to the 1996 and 2015 titles in their trophy case.UP NEXTKansas plays Dayton in Wednesday’s title game.BYU faces Virginia Tech in the third-place game.last_img read more

Gary Clark Jr., Jon Batiste Deliver Grammys Tribute To Chuck Berry & Fats Domino [Watch]


first_imgFew people did more to launch rock and roll into the national consciousness than Chuck Berry and Fats Domino. Accordingly, few people are more worthy of a tribute at the Grammys than those two men, who both passed away in 2017. Berry and Domino got their tribute on Sunday night, though, one could easily argue that innovators of that caliber deserve more than the paltry two-and-a-half minutes that were allotted in their honor.In any case, Gary Clark Jr. and Jon Batiste did a great job with what they were given. Clark’s blues-rock chops and Batiste’s New Orleans spirit made them perfect choices for the tribute, which featured a medley of Domino’s “Ain’t That A Shame” and Berry’s “Maybelline” (both of the influential tunes were released in 1955). You can check out the tribute below.“Ain’t That A Shame” and “Maybelline”[Photo: Screengrab of YouTube]last_img read more
