How I’d find the best bargain shares to buy today

first_img Peter Stephens | Monday, 10th August, 2020 See all posts by Peter Stephens 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. How I’d find the best bargain shares to buy today Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The stock market crash means there are a number of bargain shares available for long-term investors to buy. Of course, an uncertain economic outlook may mean finding them is more challenging now than it was previously.However, by focusing on sectors with growth potential that are unpopular among investors, and identifying businesses with sound strategies, you could build a diverse portfolio of stocks that’s capable of delivering high returns in the long run.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…Bargain shares in unpopular sectorsBuying the best bargain shares in unloved industries could be a sound means of obtaining favourable risk/reward opportunities. Clearly, some sectors may be unpopular among investors for good reasons, such as weak growth outlooks. However, in some cases, investor apathy towards the wider stock market means industries with growth potential are undervalued.Clearly, it’s currently difficult to identify which sectors can recover from the current challenges facing the world economy. However, many trends of recent years look set to continue in the coming years. For example, an increasing use of technology in our everyday lives, a rising demand for healthcare-related products and services, and a switch towards greener forms of energy are likely to persist.This strategy may not necessarily lead to portfolio growth in the near term. However, the track record of the stock market shows that buying bargain shares in sectors with growth potential while they’re unpopular among investors could increase your chances of generating high returns in the long run.Business strengthThe best bargain shares aren’t necessarily those with the lowest valuations. Certainly, a wide margin of safety helps to make any stock a ‘bargain’. But the quality of its operations also has a large bearing on its prospects from an investment perspective.Therefore, buying the strongest businesses in a specific sector could be a sound move. To achieve this goal, it may be necessary to consider factors such as financial strength, growth strategy, and the size of a company’s economic moat. But they may have changed significantly after the coronavirus pandemic. This could create new opportunities for businesses that previously didn’t have especially attractive business models.Assessing the quality of a range of companies may require time and effort on the part of the investor. However, it could be worth it if it means that you’re able to identify bargain shares that ultimately produce the highest returns in the long run.With a wealth of information available via annual reports, trading updates, and forecasts, it’s certainly possible for an investor to accurately gauge the quality of a business versus its sector peers. Doing so could make it easier for you to find the best shares available after the market crash that may boost your long-term financial prospects. Image source: Getty Images.

Lions 2013 squad options: The Hookers

first_img Hair raising: Richard Hibbard carries into heavy traffic during the RBS 6 Nations match with ScotlandBy Alan DymockIN THE aftermath of the 6 Nations and with time running out we are all confronted with the starkest of choices: who are our Lions?An obvious point of conjecture, there were at least some standouts in recents weeks. So in the interest of making clear what Warren Gatland, Graham Rowntree, Rob Howley and Andy Farrell face before the squad announcement on April 30, Rugby World will sift through the runners and riders in each key position.Question marks: England’s Tom YoungWith the hookers it is a case of seeing who survives the latest cull as the debate between Graham Rowntree and former hooker and Head Coach, Warren Gatland sharpens.While most would agree that Richard Hibbard was the standout hooker in the 6 Nations, former inside-centre Tom Youngs provides an exuberant carrying option and Rory Best offers an all round package to the coaches, the starting credentials of all three could be argued.After years of falling apart at the point of most stress, a bit like a Kleenex riot shield, Hibbard’s heavily tatooed body finally seems able to cope. He is fit, firing, in-form and even able to pull through the fabled Judgment Day at the Millennium Stadium, where all the Welsh regions played under the roof.If he is favourite to travel, though, behind him are uncertainties. In the last year Best had been the most reliable hooker in the game, landing lineout balls on needle-points and turning over in such a manner that referees could only beam at his legal efficiency. During the 6 Nations, though, he was as rattled as the rest with the way Ireland spluttered and choked. EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – FEBRUARY 24: Rory Best of Ireland in action during the RBS Six Nations match between Scotland and Ireland at Murrayfield Stadium on February 24, 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) Youngs, on the other hand, is as exciting as he is capable of looking lost. Yes, he jukes like a juiced-up energiser bunny, but he can also be caught trying too much or can be overwhelmed by occasion. Perhaps this is why the accusations of poor lineout prowess are often brought against him. He is enthusiastic and fit, but that doesn’t hide the look of a child asked to find the kumquats at the supermarket before returning to find his mother is somewhere else in the building.Points could be pushed for Youngs to be kept as a summer back-up. Nevertheless, if form is to be rewarded all three of these men top a list.That will disappoint Dylan Hartley, the man brought on when Youngs looked like he was suffering a fizzy head. He was there when the scrum needed shoring up or the game needed tightened. He fancies himself an enforcer, but for England he was more of the cowboy plasterer, brought in to seal up some cracks at the last minute.Still Mr Reliable?: Ireland and Ulster’s Rory BestIt is hard to tell whether Gatland truly dislikes Hartley or is secretly a massive fan of his reactionary antics. This is where the tough choices comes in.Elsewhere, Ross Ford is a few months of form short of going on another tour, though again back-up is about right. Ken Owens may also be talked about, with his penchant for being the explosive replacement in the loose, but he was too often Hibbard’s replacement for Wales, and recently Mathew Rees has been the go-to for a Scarlets starting berth. Of course, does Gatland consider club form away from international intensity? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sean Cronin is the only other possible name that could be bandied about, with his dynamism and ability to support a break, but he has very, very long odds against his name.It is almost certain that three will tour, all the others can do is cross their fingers and hope.last_img read more

Too Much, Too Soon: Harry Robinson on preparing for the future

first_imgThe former Wales international preaches financial savviness to young stars Breaking through: Harry Robinson faces London Irish with Scarelts in 2015 (Getty Images) Too Much, Too Soon: Harry Robinson on preparing for the futureIn Rugby World‘s new long-read, ‘Too Much, Too Soon’, Quade Cooper says of first bursting onto the elite scene: “I learnt the hard way. I’d spend all my money, pay cheque to pay cheque, every cent, because I knew it would fill back up.”Money management. It’s a subject that can be on many players’ minds. And according to former Wales international Harry Robinson, who had to retire at 23 following a serious neck injury, there are steps you can take to safeguard your future.Related: The latest issue of Rugby World magazine“My first bit of advice would be to enjoy your money,” says Robinson, who is now in wealth management and advises some players. “You are in an extremely privileged place. Not many 18-, 19-, 20-year-olds are going to be on that money. That’s the time where you are going on holiday with your mates, having a laugh.“Then even before I was 20 I went, ‘Right, I’m going to buy my first house’. So second, I’d say getting on that property ladder is absolutely crucial.“Third is understanding that this can end at any time. So you should have a safety blanket there, in cash or investments. I was lucky to not have to sell my house or go for a loan or go to my parents for money. You should have cash easily available should anything happen.“Ask ‘What are my outgoings?’ If they are, say two grand a month, living frugally, you’ll need £24k to get you through a year of retraining, if I was to finish. And then there’s thinking about longer term. This part of your life could be when you make the largest amount of money, potentially, so it’s making sure you take surplus income from now and putting it somewhere you might need it in the future.”He mentions putting money into a pension, saving money on tax now, growing a nest egg. Which means his checklist goes: enjoyment, property, emergency fund, and then being smart with surplus income now. Big hand: Robinson celebrates a try for Wales against Japan (Getty Images)Oversimplifying, if you budget for your mortgage, council tax, bills and insurance, then you can save X amount of thousands to put in your pot for after rugby. Whatever is left can help with holidays, splurges and other fun asides.As he surmises: “You can enjoy your money and be sensible at the same time.” The end of his career was borne from a collision against Edinburgh, which caused two discs to slip into his spinal cord. He was incredibly lucky “to be alive, let alone walking”, according to the experts who saw him.Yet despite trying to come back after surgery, he was not the same athlete. His previous 40m sprint time was 4.62secs, but when he came back he could not break 5secs. As a winger, he knew the writing was on the wall.He is happy with how his life has panned out away from the field, though, saying he is in “a very, very good place” with his career and the client bank he is building.He is also full of praise for the Welsh Rugby Players’ Association for the work they do with workshops and contacts. He encourages young players to seriously consider future careers.Signing that first contract is exciting he says, and money should be enjoyed. He also appreciates that many older players are good at giving advice (“go speak to an accountant or financial advisor” etc). But don’t put off thinking ahead. The game doesn’t last forever.

They also were in need of disposable razors, backpacks and gallon-sized plastic storage bags.There was a total of 106 hygiene-kit bags made for women and 109 bags made for men during the five-hour event.“Within our community here at TCU, we are just an incredibly compassionate and giving, caring community,” said Vanessa Roberts Bryan, assistant dean of Student Development Services.Even though TCU wasn’t directly affected by the hurricane, there are almost 900 students who are from the affected areas.“To be an ethical leader and a responsible citizen, you have to work together as a team or as a community to kind of spearhead efforts and then to create positive change in the world,” Roberts Bryan said.Volunteers wrote positive notes that were put in the bags as a reminder that TCU cares.At the end of the packing event, the volunteers loaded up a truck full of the donations.The donations were sent to Tarrant Area Food Bank, because the Goodwill warehouse was full. The items are being sorted and will be sent off to local evacuee shelters.Non-perishable food items and cases of water can also be donated to Tarrant Area Food Bank.To stay informed on more volunteer opportunities regarding Hurricane Harvey, visit relief.tcu.edu.

Call for provisional release of Kurdish journalist accused of collaborating with PKK

first_imgNews RSF_en Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Organisation Reporters Without Borders today called for the release on bail of Rüstu Demirkaya, a reporter with the Kurdish news agency Diha, who was placed in custody in Tunceli prison in eastern Turkey on 14 June on a charge of collaborating with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), also known as Kongra-Gel.Demirkaya was reportedly arrested along with four other people during a military operation against PKK members in the Tunceli region on 11 June. A former PKK member supposedly accused him of contacts with PKK activists in the neighbouring village of Sakak last autumn, when he allegedly gave them a laptop and 10 virgin CD-ROM disks and briefed them about an military operation then under way. He faces up to 12 years in prison.“We call for Demirkaya’s release on bail until his trial,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His release would not affect the investigation as the police know where he lives and there is no danger of evidence disappearing as the only evidence against him is an informant’s statement.”The press freedom organisation added: “We would like to point out that journalists working for pro-Kurdish media are often accused of being PKK collaborators because they have covered military operations.”Demirkaya’s lawyer, Baris Yildirim, formally requested his provisional release on 19 June.Demirkaya is already facing a sentence of four and a half years in prison for covering the August 2005 release of a Turkish soldier kidnapped by the PKK the previous month. Three other local journalists, including Reuters correspondent Ferit Demir, covered the event. Their trial is due to start in September the 8th 2006.
