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.

He has been missing since 20 November and the press freedom organisation fears the worst. RSF_en Reporters Without Borders voiced alarm today at the news that José Antonio García Apac, the editor of the weekly Ecos de la Cuenca in Tepalcatepec, in the southwestern state of Michoacán, has been missing since 20 November. The press freedom organisation fears the worst after Adolfo Sánchez Guzmán of radio Xhora Ori Stereo 99.3 was found shot dead on 30 November in the eastern state of Veracruz two days after going missing.“Not a week has gone by since the end of October without a journalist disappearing or being murdered in Mexico,” Reporters Without Borders said. “García Apac’s disappearance makes us fear the worst as he was working as a journalist in Michoacán state, where drug traffickers do not hesitate to decapitate rivals or critics.”The organisation added: “Once again, we call on the appropriate federal authorities to intervene in this case in an attempt to save this journalist’s life, and we urge the new government to give the authorities substantial investigative resources.”García Apac phoned his family on the evening of on 20 November to say he was leaving the newspaper and heading towards the family home in Morelia (the state capital). Reporters Without Borders learned that the last person to seem him, one of his colleagues, subsequently received a call from him at about 7:15 p.m. saying he was going to a meeting at the so-called “Ruana” intersection. Fifteen minutes later, one of his sons received a call from him that was cut short by voices telling García Apac to identify himself and to turn off his mobile phone. There has been no word of him since then and his car has not been found.García Apac had published several investigation reports in his newspaper about drug trafficking in Michoacán state, which is notorious for its violent feuding between local cartels.His family said he noticed he was being followed a few months ago. He had a few run-ins with the local mayor because of his outspoken criticism of the local level of violent crime but they patched up their differences. The family said he had also written to the state governor asking him to do more to combat drug trafficking.García Apac is the third journalist to have disappeared this year in Mexico. Eight others have been murdered this year, including Jaime Arturo Olvera Bravo of the daily La Voz de Michoacán, who was killed on 9 March.

Hapag-Lloyd Chooses Scrubbers for Ten Containerships

first_imgGerman container shipping line Hapag-Lloyd has placed an order for ten hybrid ready exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) for its Hamburg class vessels.The scrubbers would be gradually installed to the 13,000 TEU ships during 2019 and 2020, with all of the installations expected to be finished before the end of 2020.The retrofits will start in March 2019 when the first EGCS will be installed to the vessel Hamburg Express at Qingdao Beihai shipyard in China.The company opted for the move as a part of its response to the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) upcoming low sulphur regulation, which would limit the sulphur emissions caused by marine fuels to 0.5 percent as of January 1, 2020.“Using compliant low sulphur fuels is the key solution for Hapag-Lloyd. However, we want to make sure we test and make use of all relevant solutions, which is why we decided to also retrofit our Hamburg Class vessels with EGCS,” Anthony Firmin, COO of Hapag-Lloyd, said.Hapag-Lloyd also has 17 new vessels in its fleet, which can be converted to use liquefied natural gas (LNG). The company said it would retrofit one vessel of 15,000 TEU during 2019 – and will then test whether LNG is a suitable alternative to low sulphur fuel.last_img read more

first_img–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 6, 2016)–Idle since taking the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Oct. 31, Fox Hill Farms’ undefeated Eclipse Champion Songbird led throughout and annihilated five rivals in taking Santa Anita’s Grade II, $300,000 Las Virgenes Stakes by 6 ½ lengths under Mike Smith. Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, Songbird covered a flat mile in 1:36.84 as she won for the fifth consecutive time.“She broke good, she has speed,” said Hollendorfer. “There’s no doubt in my mind that she could rate if she had to, but usually she doesn’t have to…I was so pleased to see her way out there and cruising along pretty easy. At least now we got a race in her and we can try to make some more plans.“We want to run here at Santa Anita. What we do between now and the Santa Anita Oaks (Grade I, April 9), I don’t know. If we do anything. We’ll think about it and try to do the right thing.”The prohibitive 1-9 favorite in the tote board, Songbird, a Kentucky-bred filly by Medaglia d’Oro, paid $2.10, $2.10 and $2.10.“She has such a high cruising speed, she has gears,” said Smith, who has been aboard for all five of her wins. “You always worry about horses that are brilliant at two. Sometimes they won’t mature or grow anymore at three. You’re anxious to see what will happen…She seems to have improved. She seemed to up her game even more, especially mentally. She was very happy today and took it all in stride.In addition to picking up $180,000 for the win, Songbird collected 10 qualifying points to the Kentucky Oaks May 6, which is where she is scheduled to run following the Santa Anita Oaks. With the Las Virgenes win, she now has earnings of $1,682,000.“It’s hard to explain the feeling,” said Rick Porter, owner of Fox Hill Farms. “She just gives you goosebumps and you just wonder ‘How did I get this horse?’ I don’t think I’ve ever had one that’s so dominant and does things so easily. It would be nice to win the Kentucky Derby, but I’d like to do it with a nice colt…I think it’d be great for your ego, but the smart move is to stay on the path we’re on to the (Kentucky) Oaks.”Longshot Land Over Sea, who was ridden by Mario Gutierrez, was off at 23-1 and paid $5.60 and $4.00.She’s a Warrior, with Flavien Prat up, was off at 24-1 and paid $4.60 to show.The second, third and fourth place (Merirosvo) finishers picked up four, two and one Kentucky Oaks qualifying points.last_img read more
