These UK shares are up over 60% in a month. Here’s what I’d do now

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. The stock market rally in November saw the FTSE 100 gain 13% in a month. But some UK shares have done much better. The three stocks I’m looking at today have each risen by more than 60% over the last month.They’re all companies I’ve considered buying in the past, but after such rapid gains, should I wait for better buying opportunities?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…This tech stock looks cheap to meThe first company on my list is FTSE 250 software group Micro Focus International (LSE: MCRO). As I discussed in November, Micro Focus has been through a tough period over the last few years.Its share price has fallen by 85% in three years and its market-cap is now just £1.2bn. However, the firm’s latest trading update caused the shares to soar. I was impressed too — I reckon this business might be starting to turn the corner.The company’s high debt levels and falling sales still worry me. But I think there are signs the numbers are moving in the right direction. It’s also worth remembering that the company is less than one year into a three-year turnaround plan.The market isn’t convinced, and the stock currently trades on just three times forecast earnings. I think this is one UK share that’s too cheap. I may buy a few Micro Focus shares for my portfolio.Will travel return to normal in 2021?With vaccines on the horizon, bus and train operators will be hoping for a return to normal in 2021. Companies such as Stagecoach Group (LSE: SGC) have only survived this year thanks to massive government bailout payments.I’ve steered clear of Stagecoach during the pandemic, but I’m starting to wonder if this UK share is now offering an opportunity.I’d forget about the firm’s current financial year, which ends in May 2021. I expect the numbers to be terrible. But I’m interested in the potential for recovery in the 2021/22 financial year.Broker forecasts currently suggest Stagecoach could generate adjusted earnings of 7.8p per share in 2021/22. If correct, that would price the stock on less than eight times forecast earnings.The outlook is still uncertain for Stagecoach, but I reckon the worst might be over. However, I won’t be buying this UK share. One lesson I’ve learned this year is that I prefer to own shares in companies which have more control over their own destiny.The best UK share you can buy?Airline and package holiday group Jet2 (LSE: JET2) has also suffered this year. But founder and chairman Philip Meeson owns almost 30% of the business. Meeson took early action strengthen the group’s finances and protect his life’s work.As we head into 2021, I expect Jet2 to reap the rewards of this prudent management. Analysts expect the group’s sales and profits to bounce back very strongly from April onwards.That’s a view I share. By then I hope that vaccinations will be gathering pace and the pandemic will be easing. I suspect that demand will be high for affordable summer holidays. These are Jet2’s core product.The only thing I don’t like about Jet2 is its share price. The shares have doubled since the start of September. At over 1,400p, the price represents 19 times 2021/22 forecast earnings. That seems quite high to me. But I’d still like to own Jet2 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.

Wilson Whineray

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS His awkward packing technique caused front-row opponents problems. The most highly acclaimed tighthead of the era was the Springbok Piet du Toit, and their battles in South Africa in 1960 were titanic. Though the All Blacks narrowly lost the series, the New Zealander was the only loosehead of his time to neutralise the havoc for which du Toit was famed. Sir Wilson Whineray was that rugby rarity, a loosehead who had scrummaging maturity beyond his years.The New Zealander’s star shone brightly from the day he made his Test debut against Australia in 1957, aged 21, and it never dimmed in a career that spanned nine years. The last eight of these, moreover, were as skipper in 30 Internationals – a world record for Test captaincy that lasted nearly 20 years until beaten by the Frenchman Jean-Pierre Rives.In open play, Whineray showed a range of deft touches, the legacy of his earlier days in a variety of positions in and behind the scrum. He had soft hands, sold convincing dummies and was adept at the long-lost art of dribbling. Major teams: Canterbury, Waikato, Auckland Country: New ZealandTest span: 1957-65Test caps: 32 (32 starts)Test points: 6 (2T)center_img Whineray’s captaincy style was autocratic, but New Zealand lost only five Tests while he was at the helm. The veteran critic Terry McLean unhesitatingly named him ‘New Zealand’s greatest captain’, while Colin Meads, an exact contemporary, spoke for a talented generation of All Blacks when he said, “As a captain he inspired fierce loyalty.” High praise indeed from one who might easily have had his own designs on the leadership.Note, too, the day in 1964 when Whineray’s All Blacks skittled the Barbarians 36-3 in the traditional tour finale at Cardiff. As the skipper dummied and sidestepped to the posts to complete the try-scoring, an admiring full-house was roused to sing For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow. It was a fitting tribute to a great player and captain. TAGS: The Greatest Players last_img read more

AdventHealth affirms “kids are carriers”, offers tips for returning to school

first_img “Kids are carriers. We’ve known that about flu and every other infection. They may suffer less, but our primary concern is the risk of introducing the virus to at-risk family members at home. The child may not have symptoms, but they may be able to transmit the virus to others at home.” Dr. HendrixFrom AdventHealthThursday’s AdventHealth Morning Briefing focused on providing trusted health advice and calming anxieties as schools prepare to reopen during the COVID-19 crisis in Central Florida.Dr. Tim Hendrix, medical director of AdventHealth Centra Care and Dr. Sarah Li of AdventHealth Medical Group Pediatrics at Winter Garden, discussed what parents, teachers, and students need to know as schools prepare to open amid the COVID-19 pandemic.Highlights from the briefingModel good behaviors at home and in school. Children are watching their parents and teachers. Wear masks and stay socially distanced as children go back to a more structured learning environment.Dr. Tim Hendrix, AdventHealthMake safety approachable, not scary. Put masks on stuffed animals for younger kids, for example. With older kids, put a mask on your child in front of a mirror so they may practice the proper way to wear the masks for maximum benefit. Let them “bling it out” (decorate) the masks to keep it fun.Students and teachers should wear face masks and maintain social distancing all day. That is the easiest and most effective way to mitigate risk and reduce the spread of COVID-19 transmission.Medical professionals are here to support our community. AdventHealth clinicians have been working with schools in Central Florida to put together safety plans for keeping students safe as schools reopen.On sending children back into the classroom“We are concerned, but concern is a good thing. We want to make sure our schools are safe, our children our safe, and to be ready to adapt and change on the fly if needed to help our schools manage appropriately.” – Dr. HendrixDr. Sarah Li, AdventHealthOn mitigating risk and reducing the spread of the virus“Reinforce proper hygiene habits, such as handwashing and physical distancing. Facemasks are not harmful. They do not filter out oxygen or keep in carbon dioxide. Wearing facemasks is habitual.” – Dr. Li On promoting socialization among children“Make sure the children have adequate socialization. There is a psycho-social benefit to letting kids back to school so they can see and play with other children.” – Dr. LiOn children transmitting the virus to adults“Kids are carriers. We’ve known that about flu and every other infection. They may suffer less, but our primary concern is the risk of introducing the virus to at-risk family members at home.

Biarritz sneak home against Ospreys

first_imgSunday Apr 11, 2010 Biarritz sneak home against Ospreys Biarritz knocked Welsh region Ospreys out of the Heineken Cup on Saturday as they snuck a 29-28 victory in their quarter final meeting at the Estadio Anoeta in San Sebastien.You saw the brilliant try from Zee Ngwenya here on RD shortly after the match, but you can now view highlights that include a few other great tries, namely to Lee Byrne, Ryan Jones, and Ian Balshaw.Ospreys actually scored three to two, with their last converted try coming from Nikki Walker five minutes from time, setting up a tense and controversial finish that ended with Irish referee George Clancy awarding only a knock-on rather than what many felt should have been a penalty.“He (Clancy) said it was a penalty but there was no time. It’s not soccer and I don’t want to criticise the referee but we all saw that it was a deliberate knock-on. I can only tell you what he said to me,” said captain Ryan Jones.Coach Sean Holley echoed the sentiments: “I will certainly ask him. It’s a tough call that has to be made at the end but I have had another look at the incident and it looks like a penalty offence to me.”The Biarritz coach, Jean-Michel Gonzalez, has since admitted that he felt the Ospreys should have been awarded the penalty, which would have set them up for the win.“Frankly, I thought it was a penalty,” Gonzalez said. “It was a particularly interesting interpretation. My interpretation of the referees reaction was that it was a penalty.”Shane Williams, who missed the tackle on Ngwenya as the American blitzed down the wing for the first try, said that his side should have wrapped up the game earlier on.“Were really gutted that weve come this far, worked so hard to get there, but are going home again with nothing,” he added. :: Related Posts :: Zee Ngwenya’s great try for Biarritz against Ospreys Time: 05:04 Note: Better quality highlights will replace these when possibleADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Furry fun

But chances were slim to none.“Ken Andress, Troy animal control officer, found the abandoned dogs and took them to the shelter where they have been housed for several months,” said Susan Green, Pike Animal Shelter member. “It was doubtful that they would be adopted because they are older dogs and, too, they needed to go together.”But along came a mother and daughter duo with hearts, and a place, as big as all outdoors.

They all got along and everyone had a good time. It was a good day for all of us.”Other than being a fun day, the success of Fur Fest was measured by the community spirit it generated.“Fur Fest was an opportunity for us to come together with our companion animals and see what these animals mean to so many,” Schubert said. “It also brought awareness to the need for an animal shelter. And, Fur Fest reaffirmed what I already knew. That our community cares about animals.”Schubert thanked the many sponsors of the 2008 Fur Fest.“This happened because of the many volunteers who recognize the need for a shelter and work so hard to make it a reality,” she said. “Pike Animal Shelter wants to thank everyone who worked to make Fur Fest a great success and all of those who participated.”Schubert stopped just short of saying that the success of the 2008 Fur Fest guarantees that it will become an annual event.However, if one is to believe the dogs on Bone Mountain, then Fur Fest was a howling success and will probably be around for a long time.

Everything that we did to get ready for today was worth it just to see Thelma and Louise find a home.”Five of the eight dogs the Troy Animal Shelter offered for adoption at the 2008 Fur Fest were adopted.“We still have a mother and daughter pair that we would like to see adopted together,” Green said. “And, we have Trixie, an adorable small dog that would make a wonderful pet. Hopefully, they’ll have a home soon.”The 2008 Pike Animal Shelter Fur Fest was a tremendous success with more than 500 people in attendance and a whole lot of “best friends.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Coronavirus updates: WHO warns people must be ready for ‘new way of living’

first_imgjarun011/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A global pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 170,000 people worldwide.Nearly 2.5 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks. Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected nation, with more than 787,000 diagnosed cases and at least 42,364 deaths. The number of cases in New York state alone is higher than in any single country outside the U.S. Here’s how the news is developing Tuesday.

Officials will also take into account the situation in each region.“It is too easy to say, ‘let’s open everything,’” Conte said.Italy is one of the world’s worst-affected countries in the coronavirus pandemic, with more than 181,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19 and over 24,000 deaths, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University. The country became the first in Europe to impose a coronavirus-related nationwide lockdown, which has been in place since March 10.On Monday, Italy recorded its first drop in the number of people currently sick with the virus since the country reported its first case in February.4:46 a.m.: Germany cancels Oktoberfest 2020 due to pandemicGermany’s iconic Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival, has been canceled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.Every year, around six million people flock to the festival grounds in Munich, the capital of southern Germany’s Bavaria state. This year, the annual festival was slated to run from Sept. 19 to Oct. 4.After meeting with Munich’s mayor on Tuesday, Bavaria’s minister-president, Markus Soder, said they agreed the risk is “too high” to let Oktoberfest 2020 take place since “you can neither keep your distance nor work with facial protection” at the festival.“We are living in different times,” Soder told a press conference.Munich Mayor Dieter Reiter added, “It is an emotionally difficult moment and of course it is also an economically difficult moment for our city.”Germany, which has more than 147,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, lifted some social distancing measures on Monday, but major events with large audiences remain banned until at least the end of August.3:30 a.m.: WHO warns people must be ready for ‘new way of living’As many countries seek to lift lockdowns and other social distancing measures put in place to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, the World Health Organization warned on Tuesday that easing restrictions too soon would likely lead to a resurgence of infections.“This is not the time to be lax,” Dr. Takeshi Kasai, the WHO regional director for the Western Pacific, told an online press conference. “Instead, we need to ready ourselves for a new way of living for the foreseeable future.”Kasai said the the restrictions have proved effective and lifting them must be done gradually while continuously monitoring the situation. He said society must be prepared for a new way of living that keeps people healthy and allows economies to function while governments still work to keep the virus in check.“As we move forward in this difficult time, our lives, our health system and approach to stopping transmission must continue to adapt and evolve along with the epidemic, at least until a vaccine or very effective treatment is found,” he said. “This process will need to become our new normal.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
