Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Can UK share prices continue their recent surge through the roof?I’m not wise enough to forecast whether or not the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 will extend their recent gains, or whether UK share prices will come crashing down again. The fluid coronavirus crisis means that making a solid prediction either way is nigh on impossible.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…Buying wisely after the stock market crashHowever, I am prepared to say that now is a great time to buy UK shares. The FTSE 100 for instance continues to trade at a 15% discount to levels recorded at the start of 2020. There are plenty of quality stocks inside and outside the London Stock Exchange’s blue-chip index that continue to trade more cheaply than they were before 1 January. Consequently a lot of companies are trading on ultra-low valuations.Clearly the Covid-19 crisis has changed the earnings picture for a great many UK shares for the worse. A lot of stocks will suffer serious long-term impacts as a result of the consequent economic downturn. However, many companies still have very bright futures and strong balance sheets to ride out the crisis. This means that eagle-eyed investors can nip in and grab a bargain or two.A top UK share for growth investorsBoohoo Group (LSE: BOO), for instance, is a UK share that offers plenty for growth and value investors to savour. Rampant e-commerce growth means that City analysts reckon its annual earnings will soar 36% this financial period (ending February 2021). And this leaves the retailer trading on a bargain-basement forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 1.The English Covid-19 lockdown might be about to expire. But it’s been reported that the government’s planning for restrictions of some kind to remain in place until next April. This would of course provide a serious medium-term boost to online-only operators like Boohoo. To illustrate the point, the Confederation of British Industry says that 55% of retailers saw the volume of goods shifted via the Internet rise in November amid new lockdown restrictions.Buying the dipEven in the absence of additional Covid-19 restrictions, though, I’m tipping Boohoo to deliver excellent long-term profits growth. And not just because the e-commerce segment is expected to keep expanding at a terrific pace during the 2020s.Its eponymous clothing lines have splendid brand power, boosted by significant investment in marketing in recent years. The acquisitions of PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal in recent years has bolstered the UK share’s clout in this area, too.Predictions that the leisurewear market will keep growing at a terrific rate bode extremely well for Boohoo, too. And like Primark and H&M, the retailer’s also in a strong position to ride roaring demand for low-cost fashion. Boohoo’s shares have fallen slightly in value during 2020. They are down 23% in just a couple of months too. I believe this provides an exceptional buying opportunity for savvy ISA investors.

FTSE 100 shares to buy: AstraZeneca has rediscovered its growth mojo

first_img Kevin Godbold | Thursday, 11th February, 2021 | More on: AZN 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. Image source: Getty Images. See all posts by Kevin Godbold With FTSE 100 biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN), I think the Research and Development (R&D) pipeline is a key factor to consider. I’d invest in the firm’s shares because of the potential for earnings to grow from the sale of new medicines.Growth powered by new medicinesAnd today’s full-year results report contains good news. More than half the firm’s total revenue in 2020 came from “fast-growing” new medicines. And because they’re new, the products have names I’ve never heard of, such as Tagrisso, Imfinzi, Lynparza and several others.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…But AstraZeneca reckons the new medicines are “pillars” in the therapy areas of Oncology, Cardiovascular (CV), Renal & Metabolism (CVRM), and Respiratory & Immunology. And looking ahead, the directors describe the new clutch of products as “important platforms for future growth.”The R&D pipeline has been successful in churning out big-selling medicines. And that’s turned the company around from the dark days of just a few years ago. Back then, earnings were falling. Previous top-sellers had been timing-out of patent protection, leaving the company’s markets wide open to cheaper competition.How things have changed. Today’s figures, adjusted for constant currency exchange rates, show that revenue increased by 10% year-on-year in 2020. And core (adjusted) earnings per share rose by 18%. Chief executive Pascal Soriot described the outcome as a “significant step forward” for AstraZeneca.He thinks the company’s “industry-leading” pipeline and “consistent execution” will deliver more progress and “compelling results” in the years ahead. Meanwhile, City analysts have pencilled in a further advance in earnings for 2021 close to 26%.A fair valuationThe potential growth in earnings looks attractive, but AstraZeneca has been cautious with the shareholder dividend. The directors confirmed their commitment to a progressive dividend policy but kept the total payment flat at $2.80 per share.With the stock near 7,397p, the forward-looking earnings multiple is around 20 for 2021. And the anticipated dividend yield is close to 2.8%. I think that valuation looks fair compared to AstraZeneca’s potential to grow its earnings in the years ahead.Indeed, AstraZeneca has re-discovered its growth mojo. In the report, Soriot points to the “consistent achievements” in the pipeline and the “accelerating” performance of the business. He thinks those factors demonstrate strong progress, as does the performance the firm is achieving with the rollout of its Covid-19 vaccine.The company’s Regulatory News Service (RNS) feed has been vibrant with multiple notifications of progress on several fronts. Although the past isn’t a reliable guide to the future, things are going well for the firm right now.I’m tempted to buy some of AstraZeneca’s shares now for my long-term portfolio. Perhaps the biggest risk is that the R&D pipeline could stall in the future and forward earnings growth could tail off. If that happens, we could see the valuation de-rate and I could lose money.Nevertheless, I like the look of the stock today and I think the risks are balanced by the potential.

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. After I recently examined Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB), the upwards momentum has continued. In 2021, the Imperial Brands share price is up 6%. Still, it’s dropped 3% on Thursday as I write, and is now behind the FTSE 100 year-to-date. And the shares are down 57% over five years. But since November’s lows, we are looking at a 34% gain. So is there really a long-term recovery for Imperial Brands happening?This month’s first-half results looked good. Reported revenue was 6.1% ahead of last year, as the company says it benefited from strong pricing. Statutory results were weighted positively with one-offs. But on an adjusted basis, the figures were still impressive. Operating profit gained 8.1%, with earnings per share up 6.9%. The company lifted its interim dividend by 1%.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…So why is the Imperial Brands share price one of the few in the FTSE 100 still way below pre-pandemic levels? Improving profits might not satisfy investors if a company is racking up debt. But that’s not the case at Imperial Brands. No, the company reported “good deleverage progress with net debt reduced by >£3bn on a 12-month basis.”Imperial Brands share price valuationOverall, Imperial says its “full year guidance remains unchanged with low-mid single-digit organic adjusted operating profit growth.” That suggests the second half will not be quite as good. But we’re probably looking at a forward P/E of around 6.3. That’s based on the current Imperial Brands share price, which has risen since November. It’s almost scary to think that back then, IMB shares could have been picked up on a P/E of under five.Imperial brands has long enjoyed strong cash flow with solid cash conversion. And that’s one of the things that has made me see it as a solid dividend stock. But that was reset last year, as the company rebased its dividends. It was part of deleveraging and debt reduction. Now, I don’t like to see dividends cut. But I do think it’s better to deleverage now in order to support a more reliable long-term payment strategy. Paying big dividends while shouldering big debt has never struck me as a good idea.What’s holding it back?If the dividend this year rises in line with operating profit guidance, I think we should see around 140p per share. With the Imperial Brands share price at 1,630p as I write, that would be an 8.6% yield. And we’d probably see cover by earnings of around 1.9 times. So, one of the FTSE 100’s best yields, with strong cover. Why isn’t the market interested?It’s surely got to be down to fears over the long-term future of tobacco. I’ve made the mistake of thinking BP and Shell would be fine during my investing lifetime, despite the move from fossils fuels. But both dividends have been cut and both share prices have slumped. Still, I doubt the world will move to kick the tobacco habit in anything like the same timescale. There’s a risk I’ve got it wrong again, sure. But the low Imperial Brands share price still puts the stock on my dividend shortlist.

Rugby’s Greatest: Agustin Pichot

first_img Argentina Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide New Zealand Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide In possession, he probed around the fringes, pulling defenders around and releasing carriers. Without the ball, he harried runners relentlessly.Pichot was 20 when he made a try-scoring Test debut against Australia in 1995 and remained with Buenos Aires amateur outfit Club Atletico San Isidro until joining Richmond in 1997. Rugby’s Greatest: Agustin PichotIn the immediate aftermath of Argentina’s maiden Rugby Championship triumph – a tense 21-17 defeat of Australia in Mendoza – emotions were running high. Even so, mercurial centre Juan Martin Hernandez had one figure in mind above anyone else.“Many people were involved in making this dream come true,’ he said. “But I want to dedicate this victory to Agustin.”The tribute was touching, not least because Agustin Pichot spent his entire career as an insatiable standard-driver. That role seemed to be magnified by the intensity of the international arena, and he became an icon of the 2007 World Cup.Shoulder-length hair tousled around his collar and socks rolled down around the ankles, captain Pichot stood in the centre of circle of team-mates before and after each match. He spoke with conviction, cajoling them to work harder, congratulating them for challenging the world order.By the end of the tournament, Argentina had beaten Ireland, Scotland and France twice en route to third place. To precursor his impact as an instrumental campaigner post-retirement – pivotal in introducing Argentina to the Rugby Championship and a South American franchise to the 2016 Super Rugby competition – Pichot underlined his talents as a superb scrum-half.
