Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Robert Osborne | Tuesday, 4th August, 2020 | More on: JUST Image source: Getty Images. A poor pun perhaps for a stock that has failed to yet bounce back from the lockdown, but Just Group (LSE: JUST) is looking like a neglected bargain to me.The financial services group and retirement specialist is currently trading at 47.7p at the time of writing, which is down 20% from the Covid-induced market collapse in mid-March, and at a discount of 14% to its 52-week price. If it was considered a bargain then, think how much truer that would be now.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…Just Group’s share price has fallen by 74% in the last five years; however, this decline has been very gradual. Over the years it has suffered knocks, such as newer restrictions on sales of equity release products in late 2019. Net income was negative in 2018 which broke a streak of stable annual earnings, which is also the year it stopped issuing dividends to its shareholders.The bargain comes into viewHowever, I  believe Just Group is in a good position to reclaim lost ground. It did well to quickly recover from its 2018 slump in net earnings, a turnaround that restored trust in the executive committee’s governance ability. The board is eager to keep up with the times and release new products. On July 13th, they announced the UK’s first ‘green’ lifetime mortgage, which followed swiftly from the Chancellor’s announcement of a £2 billion Green Homes Grant scheme. Paul Turner, Managing Director of Retail, commented that this was part of their mission to “continually [expand] our broad range of products.”This may appear to be a bit of gimmick given that it is not expected to represent a large share of the mortgages that it issues. Nevertheless, it demonstrates the company leadership is capable of moving more quickly than its competitors, putting its foot in the door of eco-innovation. A company that is active with new product announcements will more likely attract attention in the long run. Buy-and-hold may prove to be the best strategy.The real bargain becomes clearer when the share price is placed into perspective. Despite its steady long-term decline, this has been periodically broken by fairly regular bouts of market confidence. Recently, this led to a high point of 87.05p on Jan 3rd and maintained a strong point until Feb 19th (84.75p).Additionally, the current share price at 47.7p hasn’t been this low since 2013. Whether or not the price will return to its market value earlier this year is unclear; however, I’d argue an increase in its current price is due as it appears fairly undervalued presently.Just Group is promising but not without its faults.A poorly wrapped presentThe more cautious investor will likely disregard this stock, and perhaps understandably so, with a current price-to-book ratio of 0.24. Its asset-liability ratio is also low, just 1.09. Nevertheless, its earnings per share grew 185% when compared to its five-year average of 9.93, and has a long-term price earnings ratio of over 1.5.If its leadership is able to keep a steady skip, they may yet be able to offer the company to the market as a welcome – if shoddily packaged – present to investors.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As I explained on Monday, my family will soon receive a considerable windfall. I estimate this pleasant surprise to be around £300,000 after tax. This sum will arrive after the 2021/22 tax year begins on 5 April. As we don’t need this money right now, my wife and I plan to invest it to generate dividend income and future capital gains. The majority will be invested in high-quality FTSE 100 shares.Why buy FTSE 100 stocks?We will build this new £300k portfolio around large-cap FTSE 100 firms. Why? Because everywhere else I look, I see bubbly markets and frothy prices. Indeed, US stocks look fully priced and tech stocks resemble the euphoria of late 1999. I’d rather play safe than buy into irrationally exuberant valuations.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…To young investors and day traders, buying shares in boring FTSE 100 businesses may sound unexciting. But almost 35 years of investing have taught me that boring is good. Boring works. Boring makes me richer. I know many fellow investors who have made multi-millions from long-term, patient investing. But I’ve hardly met any day traders who traded their way to real wealth. In short, experience has taught me that owning great businesses often produces outstanding returns. I just need to buy the right shares at the right price.The Footsie’s top 12Given the euphoria in US markets right now, I think bigger is better. When the market takes its next downturn, I’d rather own big, beautiful businesses than smaller, riskier companies. That’s why I’m looking to FTSE 100 heavyweights to generate an additional £12,000 a year of passive income. At Tuesday’s close, these 12 Footsie companies had the largest market values:Unilever £117.4bnAstraZeneca £103.7bnHSBC Holdings £81.1bnRio Tinto £73.3bnGlaxoSmithKline £70.7bnDiageo £67.7bnBritish American Tobacco £62.9bnBP £57.1bnRoyal Dutch Shell A £56.6bnRoyal Dutch Shell B £48.9bnReckitt Benckiser £46.7bnBHP Group £44.2bnWhich share would I buy today?I’d happily become a shareholder in any of these 12 FTSE 100 Goliaths. Each company is a leader in its field, generating huge revenues, profits and cash flows. These can then be handed over to shareholders in the form of cash dividends, special payouts and share buybacks. But some of them are facing major challenges at present. So, the one share I would buy today is GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK), for it’s what I call a ‘BBC share’. BBC stands for Big, Beautiful and Cautious — which exactly describes the sort of businesses that I want to own.For the record, I’ve been a GSK shareholder for almost 30 years. Hence, I know this business very well — and I also saw GSK shares having a terrible 2020. Over the past 12 months, they have dived by almost a quarter (22.7%), making them among the cheapest they’ve been for five years. Their share price recovery may not come quickly, but as a bargain-hunter, I do think this FTSE 100 giant is underpriced today.On Tuesday, the GSK share price closed just short of 1,410p, valuing this pharma behemoth at £70.7bn. At this price, GSK shares trade on a modest price-to-earnings ratio of 11.1 and a chunky earnings yield of 9%. What’s more, the cash dividend of 80p a share equates to a dividend yield of 5.7%, covered almost 1.6 times by earnings. For me, this is plainly too cheap, so I plan to add more GSK shares to my existing holding as soon as possible!

Indiana Farmers and Ag Leaders Logging the Miles this Winter

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Farmers and Ag Leaders Logging the Miles this Winter By Andy Eubank – Feb 25, 2018 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Indiana-farmers-on-the-roadFarmers from around the country and around the world, not to mention many Hoosiers, are heading for Anaheim, California this week for the annual farmer-led Commodity Classic, presented by the national corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum groups, along with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.Hoosier farmers in California include the board members of the Indiana Corn Marketing Council, Indiana Corn Growers Association, and the Indiana Soybean Alliance. It’s just a portion of the travel each winter for these farmers who work to expand markets and resolve issues on behalf of Indiana farmers. ISA Chairman Tom Griffiths told HAT travel this year has already included a trip to Vietnam.“We traveled to Vietnam to see what kind of opportunities were there, and it was very enlightening to see some of their aquaculture, pork production and poultry production,” he said, “and, it’s a great opportunity for Indiana soybeans to be exporting to that country. There is a lot of U.S. soybeans going into Vietnam as well as Argentinian and Brazilian soybeans. Price is a factor; foreign material is a factor. They do like ours because of the protein content, but in some markets price is still the underlying issue.”Aquaculture in Vietnam does represent a good opportunity for U.S. soybean growers because of the sustainable supply of soybean meal that can make up the fish diet.“Aquaculture is still in its infancy. They’re learning that some of the things that they’ve done in the past aren’t going to work anymore. It needs to be more sustainable. The use of fish meal is declining all the time and soybeans is one of the things that’s going to fill that void.”Now at Commodity Classic it will be all about the technology, inputs and agronomic wisdom that can lead to even more yield at lower cost for the 2018 crop. The farm bill, RFS, and trade deals will also take center stage.
