I think this FTSE 100 stock is one of the best shares to buy for May

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. I don’t think choosing the best shares to buy right now is easy. Not because there’s a dearth of value. But because we’re spoilt for choice with so many stocks on offer at discount prices.The near-term economic outlook is certainly foggy, due to the impact of Covid-19. However, it’s at such times of uncertainty and fear that far-sighted investors can pick up shares at bargain prices. A trading update today from FTSE 100 equipment rental giant Ashtead (LSE: AHT) persuades me it’s one of the best shares to buy for May. This, with a view to owning it for the long term.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…Best shares to buy offer high investment returnsAshtead is an international equipment rental group with national networks in the US, the UK, and Canada. Indeed, it’s the largest firm in the sector in the UK. It’s also the second-largest in North America. Acquisitions have helped drive its growth. These included the US equipment rental interests of Rentokil, incidentally another of my best shares to buy at the moment.The group’s business model is very simple. Purchase equipment from leading manufacturers, rent it on a short-term basis, and finally sell it in the second-hand market. Because of its size, Ashtead can buy a wide range of equipment, and at good prices. The range of equipment – from small hand-held tools to the largest construction gear – also means it has a wide range of customers.A simple business model, economies of scale, and a diverse customer base are attractive qualities for investors. They tend to both reduce risk and increase the prospect of high investment returns. Even after the recent fall in its shares to a discount price, Ashtead has delivered an annualised 33% return for investors over the last decade.Best shares to buy need survivabilityIn looking for the best shares to buy now, survivability is an essential quality. I was very encouraged by Ashtead’s trading update today. The company said its general tools business has suffered a decline in volume, due to the impact of Covid-19. However, this has been mitigated by its speciality businesses. Notably, “Sunbelt Rentals is designated as an essential business in the US, UK, and Canada, supporting government and private sector responses to the pandemic.”It added: “This includes providing vital equipment and services to first responders, hospitals, alternative care facilities, testing sites, food services, telecom, and utility companies while continuing to service ongoing construction sites and increased facility maintenance and cleaning.”The company said it remains in “a strong financial position.” And that it expects underlying profit before tax for its financial year ending 30 April to be around £1,050m (down 5% on the previous year). The shares are currently at 1,950p, or 30% below their pre-crash high. The stock is trading at a cheap 8.3 times the expected pre-tax profit.Going forwardLooking ahead to fiscal 2021, the company said it’s modelled a variety of downside scenarios over the coming year, “reflecting activity levels much lower than those which have been experienced to date.” It reckons it would remain free cash flow positive “under all these scenarios.”I believe Ashtead has strong survivability credentials. This, together with the current discount share price, attractive business model, and long-term growth prospects, makes it one of the best shares to buy today, in my book. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” G A Chester | Monday, 27th April, 2020 | More on: AHT Image source: Getty Images.

Stock market crash! I think these shares could thrive in a post-Covid world

first_img With a global recession around the corner, it’s clear that investors need to be pretty careful when it comes to selecting shares. But it’s not all bad news. There are a number of stocks that could thrive in a post-Covid-19 landscape. And many of them look quite appealing from a price standpoint following the recent stock market crash.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…Homeward boundThe coronavirus crisis has thrown a light on the correlation between high pollution rates and the spread of potentially-fatal diseases. It’s a trend that Killik & Co expects to have big ramifications for lawmakers across the globe.The financial services giant believes that “a lasting impact of the coronavirus outbreak might be an increased focus on air quality, speeding up the decarbonisation of energy supply.” It adds that it expects more stringent emissions-related legislation “both at an industrial level and at a local level, with potentially more cities banning polluting vehicles and driving a shift to electric vehicles.”Sales of electric vehicles are of course already taking off. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders sales of battery-powered electric vehicles rocketed more than 220% in 2019. Car manufacturers are investing more and more into greener technologies, in turn bolstering consumer demand. And the likelihood of more legislation should see them ramp up expenditure still further.Rising electric vehicle sales mean good news for power grid operator National Grid, of course. By extension energy suppliers like SSE can also look forward to increasing demand for their services. The latter’s large exposure to renewable energy sources also sets it up nicely to ride increasingly-green legislation.More shares to buy after the stock market crashIt’s clear that the Covid-19 outbreak could prove a game-changer with regards to our traditional working practices. The popularity of flexible working has grown in recent years thanks to the relentless progress of technology. It seems that companies will be eager to embrace the idea of their workers operating from home too, as a hedge against future pandemics and in a bid to cut office costs in what promises to be a tough next few years for the global economy.A report by Deloitte illustrates how workers’ expectations have changed following the Covid-19 lockdown. Out of a survey of 500 financial industry employees, some three quarters said that they expect to work from home one day a week or more once quarantine measures are rolled back.This is a theme that investors can ride by buying shares in companies like Softcat and Iomart. Their expertise in building safe and reliable IT services and cloud computing platforms for use by home workers puts them in great shape to ride the phenomenon. It’s likely that telecoms providers like Vodafone and Telecom Plus will also benefit from a rising home-working culture. These are all shares I’d happily buy following the stock market crash.

Lions 2013: Gatland’s final display of backbone gives a glimmer of hope

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS NOOSA, AUSTRALIA – JULY 04: Brian O’Driscoll, who has been dropped by the Lions for the final test against the Wallabies, stetches during a British and Irish Lions training session at Noosa Dolphins RFA on July 4, 2013 in Noosa, Australia. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Settled style: Warren Gatland has finally picked a squad for purpose rather than a mish-mash with contingenciesBy Alan DymockTHE BRITISH and Irish Lions have given themselves every chance of winning the series Down Under with their squad selection.If you are looking for a “Woe is me; Warren Gatland only picks Welsh players”-piece, you have come to the wrong place. This is the first Test squad selection where Gatland has picked a decisive style of play – rather than an amorphous, kick-based chase-or-counter style – where the Lions have no option but to generate momentum and fizz round the fringes over and over again.Head down, plenty of chalk: Sean O’Brien fits Gatland’s styleIf the Lions wanted a style different from the way Wales (the best team in the Six Nations for two years in a row) play, then they should not have selected the head coach of Wales to lead the Lions. Want romantic, impractical, swashbuckling rugby? The job should have gone to progressive dreamers like Brian Ashton. Want a game based entirely on set-piece and up-and-unders? I haven’t heard much from Marcelo Loffreda recently.This was the problem. Having been bound by some poor initial squad selections for the tour as a whole, Gatland was set to have a schizophrenic side. The loss against the Brumbies was a joke of an outing, where fresh, uninitiated players were chucked in and asked to create magic, while players who had been there all along where hashed in beside them and told to just get on with it. Gatland was uncharacteristically bowing to the suggestions of those around him.With that as preparation and very few established combinations throughout the trip, the first Test was played more like a Scotland side with nothing to lose. Offloads and continuity only broke out when someone generated momentum from nothing, returning a kick or taking a chance that went against their system. The chase was hard – as I’ve previously explained, sometimes too hard – and they won by grace of having played more rugby than their opponents in the weeks leading up to the game and by having a truckle of luck compared to the Wallabies’ mere crumbs.That style completely changed for the second Test, where injuries and swaps led to the Lions playing like the Argentina of World Cup 2007, clawing, gnashing and chasing while hoisting up stratosphere-kissing kicks. They did not attain the same painful careen at the rucks or the slow, ponderous but ultimately effective scrummage of that Pumas side, but they only looked like scoring with the boot and in the end deserved to lose to the side who ran through the same defensive chase and over-commitment to rucks in the final quarter of the game, perhaps the only hangover from the week before. Of course, Tom Croft and Brian O’Driscoll are big omissions when you want to attack and Jonathan Davies has a lot to prove, but this is Gatland proclaiming that bowling bulky men into the fore for the duration will ultimately beat the intellect of Will Genia, Christian Lealiifano and Adam Ashley-Cooper and the constant motoring of their back-three.People say Gatland is short-sighted or biased with the selection for Saturday. He is neither. It’s just that he has finally grown a back-bone at the end of the tour. “Who’s still a legend?”: BODThere is the issue that few have discussed during the public outpouring of detestation, following the announcement of the Lions side for the decider: tactics. There is not one singular way of playing rugby, and finally Gatland has stopped trying to appease a certain tradition or pander to the four nations at once. He has gone to a style he has worked on and implemented over the last six years.Sure, no Brian O’Driscoll is a gamble and Gatland’s Wales have an abysmal recent record against the Wallabies. However, he has picked a side he feels deep down can play round the corner at pace and burst through tackles. One that, unlike Wales, hopefully has enough voices on the skirts of the squad who promote a positive tone and a much bigger partisan crowd behind them, made up from three other unions.Gatland has gotten selection wrong in the previous Tests, picking benches that do not fit to one style. He had a defensive bench in Test one which could not help should he have needed to chase the game. In Test two he had no second row and one unused prop which allowed fatigue in his front five to set-in when Australia chased the hardest.Now he has a whole squad that can play front-foot rugby; “Gatlandball”, as some have called it. Tom Youngs, Mako Vunipola, Richie Gray, Justin Tipuric and Manu Tuilagi can all add pace and ballast to the game, ensuring that the emphasis on momentum remains for 80 minutes.last_img read more

In Brooklyn, N.Y., hospital workers lead struggle to save healthcare

first_imgIn an ongoing struggle to stop the closing of four hospitals in Brooklyn, N.Y., a protest was held July 15 at State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate Hospital where a board meeting was being held. Along with Downstate, Long Island Community Hospital, Brookdale and Interfaith Medical Center are facing possible closing, even though they supply vital services for some of the poorest communities, especially those of color. The layoffs at these hospitals will also have a devastating impact on tens of thousands of workers and their families.Hospital workers led chants such as “Take our hospitals out of critical condition!” “Hands off our health care!”  and “They say cut back, we say fight back!” The protest was organized by Healthcare Workers East 1199SEIU and the New York State Nurses Association and drew support from local community groups and several politicians. Another march and rally will take place July 24 to “mourn the death of health care in Brooklyn.” For more information, go to keepbrooklynhealthy.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

LGBTQ community calls for justice after black trans man shot, killed by police

first_imgiluhanos/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) — LGBTQ advocates are calling for a full investigation and accountability into the shooting death of a black trans man by a police officer in Tallahassee, Florida, last week.The Tallahassee Police Department said an officer was responding to a deadly stabbing incident on May 27 when they came across Tony McDade, who matched the description of the stabbing suspect, in the area. McDade allegedly pointed a gun at the officer, and the officer fatally shot him, Tallahassee Police Chief Lawrence Revell said in a press briefing following the shooting.The death of McDade, 38, was the third fatal officer-involved shooting in the Florida capital in two months.His death — two days after George Floyd’s while in police custody — has sparked an outcry from advocacy groups.“Justice cannot be served without accountability,” Natishia June, the deputy field director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, said during a press briefing Monday calling for an independent investigation into his death. “The Tallahassee Police Department must be held accountable to Tony McDade’s family and the community they are sworn to protect and serve.”Equality Florida Executive Director Nadine Smith told ABC News there’s a pattern of police restraint against white suspects, and “zero when the person you’re dealing with is black.”“The issue really comes down to this: Did the police seek to apprehend someone, or did they simply open fire because they concluded that Tony’s life didn’t matter?” she said.McDade’s death is believed to be at least the 12th violent death of a transgender or gender nonconforming person so far this year in the U.S., according to the Human Rights Campaign.“The Human Rights Campaign and the entire transgender and non-binary community demand accountability and answers for Tony’s death — and countless violent deaths of trans people, black people and, disproportionately, black transgender people,” Tori Cooper, HRC director of community engagement for the Transgender Justice Initiative, said in a statement. “Black people, LGBTQ people, and especially all LGBTQ people of color are at greater risk for violence every day in this country. This must end.”The National Black Justice Coalition called for a “full and complete investigation” following news of McDade’s death.“We don’t know a lot of the details around Tony’s death, or how police became involved. We do know that Tony should not have been killed,” Executive Director David J. Johns said in a statement. “We must work together to raise awareness about the unique challenges that black LGBTQ/SGL people face. It is important to highlight the too-often ignored violence that members of our community face in addition to the discrimination we may experience because we are black.”One organization, Tallahassee Community Action Committee, is calling for Revell to resign. On Wednesday, it is hosting a protest demanding he be removed as chief of police.The outcry comes amid protests over the death of Floyd, a black man who died on Memorial Day after he was pinned down by a white Minnesota police officer. Floyd’s death, along with the recent police shooting death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, has brought attention to the institutionalized racism faced by black people, June said.“Tony McDade should still be alive. George Floyd should be alive. Breonna Taylor should still be alive,” June said. “The list of black people who have been murdered by police is too long for people to ignore.”According to Equality Florida, the state is an “epicenter” of anti-trans violence, with seven black transgender women murdered over the last two years. On Wednesday, the organization is hosting a virtual town hall on racism and injustice against the LGBTQ community.“This is a moment of accountability,” Smith said. “And it is long overdue.”The Tallahassee Police Department is currently undergoing three investigations connected to this incident: the death of the stabbing victim, the death of McDade and the officer-involved shooting itself “to see if the officer committed a criminal act,” Officer Kevin Bradshaw, spokesman for the Tallahassee Police Department, told ABC News.Bradshaw said the department is still collecting and reviewing evidence, and likely no more details will be released until the investigation goes before the grand jury. The court proceedings may be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, he added.The officer who shot and killed McDade has been placed on administrative leave during the investigation, the department said. The officer’s name has not been released.On Monday, the Florida Police Benevolent Association filed a motion to withhold the name of the officer under Florida’s Marsy’s Law, which protects the identity of victims, according to Tallahassee ABC affiliate WTXL-TV.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Turkuaz Rings In 2019 In Worcester With The Ball Drop [Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Webster Hall Facebook On Monday night, nine-piece funk powerhouse Turkuaz rang in the new year in Worcester, MA at their annual New Years Celebration, The Ball Drop. Excited fans were treated to two great opening sets from Paris Monster & Too Many Zooz before Turkuaz took the stage at 11:30pm.Diving straight into material both old and new as time winded down to midnight, the band took a turn to something new in busting out a cover of Oasis‘ “Champagne Supernova”, which took the packed Palladium, champagne glasses in hand, through the final countdown to 2019. Out of a traditional “Auld Lang Syne”, the band entered the new year in high tempo with “If I Ever Fall Asleep” from their 2018 release, Life In The City.Later on in the set, the horn players for Too Many Zooz jumped up on stage for a few songs before Josh Dion from Paris Monster also joined the fun. At that point, the extended cast, grounded by the foot thumps of both Michelangelo Carubba and Deon, busted out a raucous version of Queen’s “We Will Rock You”. The sing-along continued through the Queen favorites with “We Are the Champions” and “Another One Bites the Dust”.Photographer Chris Capaci was on hand to capture the magic. You can check out a gallery of his photos from Turkuaz’s New Year’s Eve performance below.For a full list of Turkuaz’s upcoming tour dates, head to the band’s website.Setlist: Turkuaz | “The Ball Drop” | The Palladium | Worcester, MA | 12/31/18Coast to Coast, E.Y.E., Make You Famous, Future 86, Champagne Supernova*, Auld Lang Syne, If I Ever Fall Asleep, Toolbelt, The Question, Percy Thrills the Moondog, Lady Lovely, 20 Dollar Bill, Electric Habitat, On the Run, Life in the City, Queen Medley^~, Monkey Fingers, Ballad of Castor Troy, Back to Normal, Bubba Slide*Oasis Cover^We Will Rock You > We Are the Champions > Another One Bites the Dust~ w/ special guests Too Many Zooz horns & Josh Dion of Paris MonsterTurkuaz | The Palladium | Worcester, MA | 12/31/18 | Photos: Chris Capacilast_img read more
