first_img In a sign of the times. FTSE AIM 100 online fashion retailer Boohoo (LSE: BOO), which owns a number of popular brands including Boohoo, Pretty Little Thing, and Nasty Gal, now has roughly the same market capitalisation as high street stalwart Marks & Spencer Group (LSE: MKS). As I write, Boohoo has a market-cap of £3.55bn, whereas Marks & Spencer has a market value of £3.59bn. From an investment point of view, the two retail stocks are very different in nature. Boohoo is a growth stock that trades at a very high valuation (forward-looking P/E ratio 55) and pays no dividend. It’s done really well over the last year, rising around 60%.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…By contrast, Marks & Spencer is more of a value/contrarian stock. It trades at a low valuation (forward P/E ratio of 10) and sports a big dividend yield (nearly 6%). Over the last year, MKS shares have underperformed, falling about 35%.Interested to know which stock I’d go for out of the two right now? Read on… Strong momentum From a growth investing perspective, I see a lot of appeal in Boohoo, despite its high valuation. The reason I say this is that the company has a lot of momentum right now. Over the last three years, revenue has soared from £195m to £857m, which represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of an incredible 64%. And a trading update issued on 14 January showed further progress, with sales for the four months to 31 December 2019 rising 44%. Looking ahead, I think there could be plenty more growth to come from Boohoo. Its brands remain extremely popular with Millennials (Pretty Little Thing now has 12.2m Instagram followers, up from 11.4m in October) and international markets present a huge opportunity for the group. The company’s data also provides a competitive advantage. If growth remains strong, I expect the share price to keep rising.Continuing problems  From a value investing perspective, I don’t see the same kind of appeal in Marks & Spencer shares. Sure, the stock’s valuation is cheap. But so it should be.Over the last three years, revenue has actually declined. And for the 13 weeks to 28 December, the group reported total revenue declined 0.7%, with clothing and home sales falling 3.7%. In addition, the company has a very low return on equity (3-year average ROE of 1.8% versus 22.2% for Boohoo), a large chunk of debt on its balance sheet, and it cut its dividend by 40% early last year. Overall, I see M&S as a low-quality stock.I’ll point out that I do think its food division has potential. Some of the new M&S Food Halls are brilliant. However, the clothing division just continues to cause problems for the group. Until it sorts out this side of the business, I don’t see the firm as a good investment.So, all things considered, Boohoo is my pick of the two. The FTSE AIM 100 stock is expensive, but I think the future looks exciting. Edward Sheldon owns shares in Boohoo. The Motley Fool UK has recommended boohoo group.

At the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, many FTSE 100 companies decided to cut their dividends. However, over the past few months, these businesses have started to reintroduce their payouts. With that in mind, I’m going to take a look at the five highest-yielding FTSE 100 shares I’d buy for my portfolio today. 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…FTSE 100 incomeThe first company on my list, with the highest dividend yield of any FTSE 100 stock, is tobacco giant Imperial Brands. Analyst forecasts suggest the group will distribute 140p per share to investors in its current financial year, and a similar amount next year. This implies investors buying the stock today could be in line for a dividend yield of just over 11%. As well as these attractive income credentials, the shares also look cheap after recent declines. Indeed, the stock is trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 5. That’s compared to the market average of 13. The next company on my list is financial services giant Legal & General. With a dividend yield of just under 10%, this organisation has one of the highest dividend yields in the FTSE 100. It also has an impressive dividend growth track record. The payout has grown at a compound annual rate of around 5% for the past six years. In my opinion, this shows management is committed to rewarding shareholders with steady dividend growth and cash returns. Piles of cash FTSE 100 homebuilder Persimmon has returned piles of cash to its investors over the past five years. I think this trend will persist as the company continues to capitalise on the booming demand for property in the UK. Despite the pandemic, the business has continued to shift new builds, and this bodes well for future dividend growth. Analysts have pencilled in a potential dividend yield of 9% for the next financial year. With a cash-rich balance sheet, I think the chances are high that the business will meet this lofty target. Mining giant Rio Tinto is set to yield over 7% in 2021, according to current analysts projections. The FTSE 100 group is the world’s largest iron ore producer, which gives it tremendous economies of scale. It has some of the best profit margins in the business. What’s more, the price of iron ore has jumped in 2020. This suggests the firm’s bottom line could see a large increase this year. That would be hugely positive news for the stock’s dividend potential. My fifth and final FTSE 100 dividend pick is Phoenix Group. This enterprise manages a large book of pension and life insurance products. By combining thousands of policies, it can achieve substantial economies of scale and large cash returns. These large cash profits support the company’s 6.8% dividend yield. As Phoenix continues to snap up new books of life and pension assets, I reckon it’s likely this distribution will continue to increase in the years ahead.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares At a time when job security has decreased, many people are looking for new ways of boosting their income. Some look to getting a second job, but this can take away a substantial amount of free time. In my opinion, one of the best ways I can achieve it is via FTSE 100 stock investments. Getting income from stocks can be achieved in several different ways, and can make a difference with less than £100 a week. So how’s this possible?Types of incomeOne of the most popular ways of generating income from stocks is via dividend payouts. When I buy a stock, I’m entitled to a share of any money that’s paid out to the owners. If I own 1,000 shares and a dividend of 10p per share is announced, I’d get £100. This income is ‘passive’ in nature, as I don’t have to do anything particularly active in terms of trading stocks to get this money. 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…You can also see the income gained from dividend payouts by comparing the dividend yield to a Cash ISA. Companies such as Vodafone and GlaxoSmithKline currently have yields in excess of 5.5%. By comparison, a Cash ISA will struggle to offer higher than 1%.Another way of generating income from stocks is from taking profits. I recently wrote a piece that ran through how a £1,000 investment in some stocks would now be worth over £10,000. The point here is that you can actually use some of this profit as income. From your initial investment, you can always partially sell out of some shares. From the full amount you can take out 10%-20% as profit, but still be left with 80%-90% of the investment.The caveat with this type of income booster from stocks is that it isn’t passive. You need to pick your investments carefully, and take profit when you think it’s the right time.Investing less than £100 a week Even with £96 a week you can boost your income. Over the course of the year, this adds up to around £5,000. Let’s say we split this amount evenly into dividend stocks and growth stocks. The dividend-paying stocks help to boost our income straight away via regular payouts. And at the end of year one, compounded growth should enable 10% profit to be taken out of the growth stocks.Assuming a dividend yield of 5%, and a 10% growth rate, the £96 a week quickly starts to add up. The £5,000 pot at the end of the first year should be able to generate £250 income in year two, with £500 available to be trimmed as profit from the other growth stocks. Now that the £96 regular investing has been established, the numbers are likely only going to increase as more time passes.Overall, generating income from FTSE 100 stocks doesn’t have to be a difficult task. I can pick good companies with high dividend yields to supplement high-growth stocks that I believe will perform well into the 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. US tech shares, and UK tech shares for that matter, have been some of the best performers over the past couple of years. Take the NASDAQ (a tech heavy index). Two years ago it was trading at 7,400 points. Today, even with the recent sell-off, it sits at 12,600 points. This represents a gain of just over 70%. Over one year, it’s up around 58%. But the past couple of weeks have not been good, for some very valid and important reasons.Why the drop?Over the past month, the NASDAQ index is down around 10%. It’s home to a lot of the big US tech shares, including Tesla, Apple and Alphabet. If we exclude the stock market crash last March, over the past couple of years, the tech names have moved in an almost unbroken line higher. So this drop in the short term is something I need to take note of.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…One reason tech has taken a hit is due to the reopening of global economies and easing of lockdowns. Since lockdown, I’ve spent a lot more time in front of my computer. My reliance on services such as Amazon Prime, Google, Netflix, YouTube and more has increased substantially. If I could get back out and about, my usage would drop. I’d more likely shop in-store instead of ordering online. I’d spend less time watching Netflix and more time with friends.Overall, US tech shares may have to readjust to slightly lower levels of uptake from consumers, hence the drop. A second reason for the sell-off is chatter around interest rates in the US and UK. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect rates to rise any time soon. But the bond markets are rising. For example, the 10-year UK yield is now at 0.7%! In the US, it’s at 1.5%. This is a market estimate of where it believes interest rates will be in 10 years’ time. These yields have risen a lot in recent weeks. Since tech companies often have large amounts of debt, higher yields make it more expensive for the companies to raise new cash. As a result, this could raise interest costs and reduce profits.Should I buy US tech shares now?I think the above reasons are completely justified in bringing US tech shares lower. The question is whether to buy the dip or not. Personally, I find it hard to value these tech companies based on traditional measures. For example, the Tesla P/E ratio currently sits at 955! Given that investors look more at the potential for high future profits, some claim this ratio isn’t relevant.I would look to buy this dip, but would be selective in which stocks I buy. I wouldn’t buy Tesla shares, but would look to buy shares in Apple. I feel Apple is a more sustainable and a lower-risk business than Tesla. The financials of Apple and the track record also make it a more viable stock for me to buy based on the risk I’m happy with.  Suzanne Frey, an executive at Alphabet, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. jonathansmith1 has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Alphabet (A shares), Apple, and Tesla and recommends the following options: short March 2023 $130 calls on Apple and long March 2023 $120 calls on Apple.

Muliaina made his All Blacks debut in 2003, has captained the team in three Tests in 2009 and has scored 34 Test tries.All Blacks Coach Graham Henry, who has known Muliaina since his schoolboy days, today paid tribute to the fullback:  “I want to congratulate Mils on this outstanding achievement.  He is a special man and has been a world–class All Black for many years – the consummate professional really – as well as a very influential member of the All Blacks leadership group.”In other changes in the backline, Piri Weepu will start at halfback, Sonny Bill Williams comes onto the right wing, with three of the All Blacks backs – Zac Guildford (hamstring), Israel Dagg (thigh haematoma) and Richard Kahui (hamstring) – recovering from injuries, while Ma’a Nonu is back at second five–eighth.  Meanwhile, 2010 All Black Aaron Cruden, who was called into the All Blacks to replace the injured Daniel Carter, is on the bench.In the forwards, captain Richie McCaw returns to the starting XV after missing last week’s Test against Canada with a sore foot, while Keven Mealamu and Brad Thorn also return to the starting XV.last_img read more

first_imgThursday Oct 22, 2020 Rugby player banned for four years for doping violation in England  A Lydney RFC player has been banned from all sport for four years following testing after a match that took place earlier this year. According to the hearing findings, he was trying to deal with a shoulder injury.ADVERTISEMENTTwenty-nine-year-old Kurt Brown provided an in-competition urine sample after a match at Lydney RFC on 1 February 2020.The sample was found to contain an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) for S1.1 Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid, namely Nandrolone, 19-norandrosterone and 19-noretiocholanolone, a Non-Specified Substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List 2020.Mr Brown was charged with a breach of World Rugby regulation 21.2.1, ‘Presence of a Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers in a player’s Sample’.RFU Anti-Doping and Illicit Drugs Programme Manager Stephen Watkins said:“All rugby players are subject to the anti-doping rules irrespective of level. This case highlights the importance of players only seeking advice on injuries and treatment from qualified medical personnel.”According to his testimony, Brown had picked up a shoulder injury in January 2019 which caused so much pain that he felt he would need to stop playing rugby.ADVERTISEMENTAdvice from a friend in gym led to him trying to reduce the symptoms by injecting himself with Deca-Durabolin, also known as Nandrolene.He said in his statement that he took the drug to aid his recovery so that he was able to work again and earn money to support himself.He was later able to return to playing rugby.“At the time of suffering the injury I had retired from rugby, having been told by a doctor I would not play again,” Brown’s statement read, saying that the violation was not intentional.ADVERTISEMENT“I stopped taking the drug on medical examination two months before I began playing rugby again having been given the all-clear to resume playing. My resuming playing rugby was a surprise, and at the time of taking the substance I did not envisage playing or participating in the sport again.”In the anti-doping hearing, these factors were effectively dismissed.“The fact that he may have had little or no anti-doping education – something that is regrettable for obvious reasons – cannot begin to excuse him from embarking on a course of conduct which any reasonable person would have known was wholly wrong and which we find as a fact he knew was indeed wrong,” read the statement.“Mr Brown must serve a period of four years’ suspension, such ban to commence on 13 March 2020, the date of his provisional suspension.”The relevant parties may appeal the decision within the applicable timelines.

Housing part had been limited to the 2nd and 3rd floors, and the 1st floor had been changed to a rented store and basement floor to a gallery of the client, because the client needed his house,a gallery, a rent space for a store.Save this picture!© Sadao HottaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Sadao HottaWe tried to create space/element that can be created by renovation. Existing stocks have many objects / element which cannot be created by new construction because of many reasons like cost, legal, and so on.Save this picture!© Sadao HottaIn this project, we mixed the old and new, not compare those. We focused on the fact that it has a large span and fire resistance due to the exiting RC structure, and created large living-dining-kitchen space by removing the partitions.Save this picture!© Sadao HottaSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Sadao HottaThe stair hall, which was space for only going up/down because of surrounding fire protection wall and door, was connected with living-dining-kitchen space and became a dynamic space with a three-story atrium(that is not easy to create in Japan because of architectural law)by relocating the fire protection and separating the three uses-private house, store, and gallery.Save this picture!© Sadao HottaProject gallerySee allShow lessFilothei House / Divercity ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHouse for someone / Peak StudioSelected Projects Share ArchDaily art BLD.

Below is a selection of some of the issues raised:Donegal South West Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill today welcomed confirmation that following a meeting that both himself and Cllr Seamus O Domhnaill had with the Minister for Transport,  Noel Dempsey TD that €540,000 has been allocated from the National Roads Authority for the Road at Murroe Junction in Dunfanaghy towards Falcarragh.Senator Ó Domhnaill said; “I warmly welcome this funding which will complete the upgrade works on the N56 from Dunfanaghy to Falcarragh and the works include resurfacing (Bitumen) and relining. ““I am very pleased to have been in a position to ensure that this funding has been allocated and I understand that the work will begin on Monday 29th November and will be carried out by Mc Caffrey Contractors.”Councillor Barry O’Neill raised the concerns for the fishing industry:Speaking today (Tuesday) from Killybegs, Fine Gael bye-election candidate, Cllr. Barry O’Neill, reaffirmed his Party’s commitment, when in Government, to getting the fishing industry back on its feet by ending the criminalisation of fishermen for minor breaches.“Ireland is completely out of step with all the other maritime jurisdictions in Europe as we rely exclusively on criminal sanctions for sea fisheries offences. This means fishermen are being criminally penalised for minor or technical violations which are dragged through the courts at great expense. This is having a seriously damaging affect on the fishing trade in places like Killybegs and the entire west of Donegal, with the industry at a standstill for much of the year because of the way fishermen are being treated.Councillor Thomas Pringle also raised the issue of fishermen:SW Donegal Independent Candidate Thomas Pringle is travelling to Brussels in December to meet with Fisheries Commissioner, Ms Maria Damanaki.  Pringle will travel as part of the international group Reclaim our Seas Alliance (ROSA)The Independent has been working with ROSA – an alliance of fishing groups from the Republic of Ireland, North of Ireland, Scotland, England and France – for some time now on the issue of the Common Fisheries Policy. The EU Commission is ‘reviewing’ the Common Fisheries Policy but ROSA members are proposing a strategy to halt the economic and social decline suffered by fishing communities caused by the CFP.   The new direction proposed gives Member States with an interest in particular fisheries areas the primacy of deciding the right policy for that area – by initiating a process immediately of repatriating control of policy, management and stocks to individual EU maritime member States.ROSA contends the CFP has failed to support sustainability, match capacity with opportunity, establish clear and fair levels of compliance across the EU and has not engaged with the industry to improve policies.
