Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: The Motley Fool Enter Your Email Address The giant investment fund run by Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, has doubled down on pharmaceutical companies in the wake of the pandemic. All US funds that manage over $100m must submit filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission each financial quarter.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…And it’s a 13-F filing from 16 November that shows exactly what Warren Buffett bought. The billionaire spent over $5.5bn (£4.3bn) on four drug companies between July and September 2020. They are Pfizer, Merck, AbbVie, and Bristol-Myers Squibb. The decade of pharmaBuffett clearly believes we are entering an age of massive new investment in pharmaceutical products. Investors on both sides of the Atlantic tend to hang on his every word. And so there could be some useful clues here about the trends that will define the next 20 years. It’s not just about investing in toilet paper manufacturers. Although it is fair to say that small AIM companies like the £100m market cap Accrol Group may have benefited from early pandemic panic buying. Instead the big bet by Buffett hangs on the idea that governments were caught on the hop by the outbreak. They won’t want to be put in the same position again. So we infer that they will have much larger budgets for buying and supporting vaccines, antiviral and antibacterial treatments.Follow Warren BuffettUK investors who want to follow Buffett can do one of two things. They can fill out a W8-BEN form if they are investing in an ISA. This is a regulatory compliance thing which means they are allowed to buy stakes in US companies. Or, they can pick the FTSE 100, FTSE 250 or AIM-listed companies they think Buffett would choose. Remember: Buffett buys companies he thinks have a very long runway for future success. He bets big, then creams off dividend income for as long as he possibly can. Buffett famously said: “Our favourite holding period is forever.”So two FTSE 100-listed pharmas that spring to mind are Astrazeneca and GlaxoSmithKline. The latter has a much better dividend payout of 5.75%, which usually forms part of my calculations. Research, then developR&D is can be ruinously expensive. And there’s no guarantee that there will be a successful product at the end of it. Drug development firms can burn through millions of investor cash without ever making a profit. And the smaller the company, the more likely this is to happen. That’s probably why Buffett is focused on the world’s largest pharma firms.There are simply better economies of scale inside the Astrazenecas and GlaxoSmithKlines of this world. That’s because they are already selling profitable products which support expensive R&D. I would also avoid companies in the Covid-19 testing business, simply because Covid-19 vaccines are coming in 2021. The major revenue source that has pushed them to new heights is probably cut off for good. I’m thinking of the likes of Omega Diagnostics, Avacta, and Synairgen. If I’m a more adventurous investor? I would be looking at contract research organisations (CROs). These businesses help design clinical trials, process data, and run studies. It’s a picks and shovels play. That why I think it’s what Buffett would choose. last_img read more

Stock market recovery: how I’d invest £1k today to double my money

first_imgStock market recovery: how I’d invest £1k today to double my money Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! A stock market recovery that pushes UK shares to new record highs is likely to take place in the coming years. After all, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have always posted new all-time highs following their market declines.As such, investing in high-quality businesses at low prices today could be a shrewd move. It may allow an investor to take advantage of rising stock prices over the long run that could double their initial investment of £1k, or any other amount.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…Benefiting from a stock market recoveryAlthough a stock market recovery can catalyse a £1k investment, even achieving the same return as the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 could double an investor’s initial outlay. Both indexes have returned around 8% per annum over the past 20 years, including reinvested dividends. As such, it would take around nine years for an investment today to double in value, assuming the same rate of return in future.However, with many UK shares trading at low prices today, it is possible to generate higher returns than the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have managed in the past. Low starting prices may mean there is scope for capital appreciation, as company valuations have historically reverted to their averages over the long run. Therefore, focusing on today’s cheap stocks could be a sound means of capitalising on a likely stock market recovery in the coming years.Buying cheap stocks with recovery potentialCompanies such as BP and Shell could be major beneficiaries of a stock market recovery. They have experienced disappointing results due in part to falling oil prices. A stock market rally would normally take place because of improving prospects for the world economy. In such a scenario, the oil price may make gains and lead to improving profitability for both companies.Furthermore, BP and Shell are implementing new strategies to transform their operational outlooks. They are embracing a green recovery from the 2020 stock market crash. Although it will take time to achieve their carbon-neutral goals, their investment in low-carbon assets may lead to improving profitability in the coming years.Growth opportunities in a recovering economySimilarly, shares such as Unilever and Diageo may benefit from a stock market recovery for similar reasons. Their financial performances have been negatively impacted by disruptions this year. An improving economic outlook could lift their profitability and share prices.Meanwhile, retailers with a dominant online presence such as Next and Tesco could deliver robust sales growth and profit growth that improve an investor’s returns. They may benefit from a continued shift in spending towards online that may be accelerated by this year’s lockdowns in the UK. Over time, this may allow an investor to outperform the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 to double their initial investment.

3 income shares to buy in June

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees. 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. Recently, I’ve been looking for income shares to add to my portfolio. I’ve been looking for companies that should be able to prosper in any economic environment. I think these may be the best income investments as we advance. Here are three companies I think meet these criteria.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…Income sharesThe first company I’d buy is the financial services group CMC Markets (LSE: CMCX). CMC’s trading platforms allow investors to bet on financial markets around the world. Aimed at professional investors, these platforms can be a valuable tool for managing portfolios.They can also be incredibly profitable in all environments. For example, when stock markets are falling, investors may want to bet against the market to offset investments elsewhere. And when the market’s rising, investors may want to join the party.This kind of flexibility is precisely why I’d buy CMC Markets and its 5.7% dividend yield for my portfolio of income shares today. The main risk facing the business is the potential for additional regulations. These could increase costs and reduce profitability. This may have an impact on earnings and the company’s dividend. Trading for growth The other company I’d buy in the financial sector is Man (LSE: EMG). This investment and CMC have a lot in common, in my opinion. The publicly-traded hedge fund and financial services provider are both designed to make money in rising and falling markets. Man is quite good at this, and it’s earned handsome profits for its investors and its shareholders over the past few years. At the time of writing, the stock offers a dividend yield of 4.9%. In the past, management has also returned excess profits to investors with share buybacks. The one drawback of this company is its investment strategy is based on a relatively complex computer system. This means it’s tricky to understand how the enterprise really makes money. This may put some investors because there’s no telling what could go wrong. Still, despite this complexity, I’d buy the stock, based on its track record of returning cash to investors.Delivering income The final company I’d buy for my portfolio of income shares in June is Domino’s Pizza (LSE: DOM). This is a growth investment, which is throwing off an attractive level of income as well.Over the past five years, earnings per share have more than doubled, and the company’s dividend payout has increased by around a third during this time. For 2021, City analysts are forecasting earnings per share of 19.2p for the group and a dividend of 9.8p. That would give a dividend yield of 2.6% on the current share price.Admittedly, this isn’t the highest yield on the market, but I think it could be worth sacrificing thar for earnings growth. Of course, these are just projections at this stage. There’s no guarantee the company will meet growth targets for 2021. Its profits could come under pressure due to a range of factors, such as rising wage or ingredient costs. These would hold back growth and may lead management to reduce the dividend. Despite these risks, I’d buy Domino’s for my portfolio of income shares right now.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Image source: Getty Images.

Eddie Jones leaves the Stormers to be appointed new England Head Coach

first_imgFriday Nov 20, 2015 Eddie Jones leaves the Stormers to be appointed new England Head Coach After much speculation following England’s poor Rugby World Cup and the stepping down of Stuart Lancaster, former Japan coach Eddie Jones has today been confirmed as new England Head Coach. Jones will take over in December, starting a four-year contract.*UPDATE: New interview with Jones talking about the new England role at the bottom of this postJones arrived in Cape Town recently to take up a role with the Stormers ahead of next year’s Super Rugby tournament. Reports that he was in talks with the RFU were denied, but today it has been confirmed that before coaching the Stormers to a single match, he will be leaving.Australian Jones has had a long and successful coaching career, winning trophies both domestically and internationally, having also spent time coaching in England. His first major piece of silverware came in 2001 after leading the ACT Brumbies to their first Super 12 title and in doing so becoming the first side other than a New Zealand team to win the tournament.He took charge of the Wallabies between 2001 and 2005 and delivered Tri Nations and Bledisloe Cup success. The national side reached the 2003 Rugby World Cup final on home soil, losing narrowly to England.After spells with the Queensland Reds and Saracens, the 55 year old took up a technical advisor role with the Springboks in 2007 helping the South Africans win their second World Cup having beaten England twice, once in the pool stages and then again in the final. He later became Director of Rugby at Saracens until 2009 and then coached the Japanese club side Suntory Sungoliath.Jones returned to the international arena in 2011 as Head Coach for Japan where his mother was born. His achievements included arguably the biggest shock in Rugby World Cup history when his side beat South Africa 34-32 in the dying moments of their opening match of the tournament this year.Japan went on to win three of their four pool matches and their performance saw them move into the top ten of the world rankings.  Following the tournament he was appointed Head Coach of the South African Super franchise, The Stormers, before agreeing terms with the RFU.Jones in Cape Town, just last weekEddie Jones said: “Firstly my thanks must go to Rob Wagner and everyone at Western Province Rugby for understanding my decision and allowing me to return to the international stage so quickly.  The opportunity to take the reins in possibly the world’s most high profile international rugby job doesn’t come along every day however, and I feel fortunate to be given the opportunity.“I’m now looking forward to working with the RFU and the players to move beyond the disappointment England suffered at the World Cup and hope to build a new team that will reflect the level of talent that exists within the English game. I believe the future is bright for England.”RFU Chief Executive Ian Ritchie said: “We promised to recruit a coach with proven international experience and we have done that.  Eddie is a world-class coach, with extensive experience at the highest level with Australia, South Africa and Japan. “We believe that the appointment, which was unanimously approved by the RFU Board, is the right one to bring England success in the short, medium and long term.“We are confident Eddie can build on the strong foundations already laid, with this talented group of players largely remaining together through to the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan and beyond. We are grateful to the Stormers for their co-operation in releasing Eddie early from his contract.”Jones will be in charge when England play their opening Six Nations match against Scotland at Murrayfield in Edinburgh on February 6th.

first_img Howard Lake | 10 May 2011 | News HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust has merged its Communications and Fundraising teams with its Health Improvement team.The new structure will, says the charity, enable it “to enhance the link between its brand and income generation, further align its messaging and bring supporters closer together at the very heart of the organisation”.The new department will be led by Genevieve Edwards, former Executive Director of Communications and Health Improvement. She joined the charity in 2001 as Head of Marketing & PR and will now be responsible for Terrence Higgins Trust’s marketing, website, media relations, fundraising and health improvement functions.

Hoodie Day for Trayvon Martin in Buffalo, N.Y.

first_imgWW photo: Beverly HiestandThe Buffalo, N.Y., National Hoodie Day march, led by African-American youth, proceeded down a major street in a predominantly African-American community on June 10.As lines of cars crawled by and came to a stop many times, drivers in rush-hour traffic signaled support with horns, raised fists and shouts, and took pictures from car windows. People in stores came out to watch and show support. The shout-outs came from everyone, from young children to older adults, and showed how the experiences of Trayvon Martin and thousands of others brutalized by racism are felt deeply here.Placards expressed demands, including justice for Trayvon and ending all racism, especially the targeting of youth, police brutality, mass incarceration, the New Jim Crow and all forms of oppression. These were clear calls for the rightful self-determination of oppressed communities.Reaching out to members of oppressed communities and nationalities, the march chanted, “No justice, no peace, no racist police!” while heading toward a police station for a rally. The demands for justice were not just for Martin and the conviction of his killer, George Zimmerman, but for all oppressed youth and communities to be free from racist police terror and vigilante violence.After leaving the police station, participants gathered in a nearby lot to discuss how they can strengthen their unity and organization to build a stronger fightback in this community.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
