Looking to buy UK shares? 4 dividend stocks I think are too cheap after the stock market crash

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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m looking at the 2020 stock market crash as an opportunity to build a five-star portfolio at little cost. It’s also a terrific chance to a brilliant return as an income investor. This is because yields from many dividend-paying UK shares have rocketed through the roof.4 cheap UK shares on my radarMake no mistake: UK share markets are chock-full of bargains right now. Here are four dividend heroes I’m thinking of adding to my own Stocks and Shares ISA: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…Persimmon, whose shares have fallen 5% in value in 2020, provides oodles for bargain hunters to sink their teeth into today. The FTSE 100 housebuilder not only changes hands on a low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12 times it sports a mighty dividend yield just shy of 5% as well. The UK’s colossal homes shortage means that Persimmon can expect its newbuilds to keep selling like hotcakes long into the future. And the builder is investing heavily to capitalise on these strong market conditions. House production rose 14% year on year in the first half of 2020.It’s not just stocks that have tanked in value that look too cheap to miss, of course. There’s plenty of UK shares whose prices have rocketed and yet still trade on dirt-cheap price-to-earnings ratios. Take Caledonia Mining Corporation as an example. The gold digger has surged 130% in value in 2020 as bullion values have rocketed to record highs. Yet Caledonia Mining trades on an forward-looking earnings multiple of just 8 times, a reading that fails to reflect the bright outlook for gold prices. A dividend yield close to 2% isn’t as exciting as that of Persimmon. But that low P/E reading means I’m paying close attention.

I’d argue that Sylvania Platinum Limited is another irresistible UK share to buy today. Like gold, platinum group metals (or PGMs) have enjoyed a solid price uplift in 2020 on strong safe-haven buying. And persistent macroeconomic uncertainty and low interest rates should keep investment demand quite healthy too. But this is not the only reason why Sylvania’s a brilliant buy today. I’d buy it to ride the inevitable economic recovery, too, a period when industrial demand should rocket. Today the business trades on a low forward P/E ratio of 4 times and boasts a 13% dividend yield. Despite its rising share price in 2020, I think it remains too cheap to miss.I’m also paying close attention to PayPoint today. This UK share has plummeted 49% in price in 2020 as Covid-19 has hit its operations and bill payments through its terminals have fallen. But the long-term outlook for this technology stock – which makes retail services terminals for convenience stores – remains compelling. Adoption of its industry-leading PayPoint One terminal remains strong and should deliver stunning profits growth during this decade. Currently PayPoint trades on a forward P/E ratio of just 12 times and carries a meaty 6% corresponding dividend yield. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended PayPoint.

Stock market crash: 2 UK growth shares that could make me rich

first_img Since the stock market crash in March, the majority of shares have seen their prices decline greatly. However, some UK shares have seen tremendous growth despite the pandemic – and have the potential for it to be sustained in the future.Codemasters Group Holdings (LSE: CDM) is a UK-based video game developer. It is known for making racing and driving games, with its portfolio including the top selling titles DiRT, GRID and Formula 1. Codemasters’ share price has grown around 65% since January, making it one of the best performing UK growth shares this year. This is matched by the company’s performance, with strong cash generation and lack of debt, as reported in its recent half year results.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…The company also has a pipeline of games to be released in the near future and I have no reason to believe that strong sales growth won’t continue.Overall, the video games industry has seen an increased demand during the pandemic as customers turned to video games as one method of entertainment during lockdowns. The demand isn’t just restricted to the unique circumstances of this year, though, as the industry is projected to experience an average year-on-year growth of 9% until at least 2027.One concern that I have with Codemasters’ share price is that currently it trades with a price to earnings (P/E) ratio of 56, which can be considered expensive. However, when compared with its competitors, such as Team 17, Frontier Developments and Keywords Studios, possessing P/E ratios of 52, 59 and 47 respectively, I think Codemasters’ shares are competitively priced.Avon Rubber (LSE: AVON) is a UK-based technology company. Through its two businesses, Avon Protection and Milkrite/InterPuls, it specialises in personal protective equipment and agricultural milking equipment.Since the start of the year, this UK growth share has seen its share price increase by over 90%, a prediction correctly made by fellow Fool Paul Summers back in May. This is predominantly attributed to strong demand for the products of its Avon Protection business by winning contracts such as the US Army helmet contract worth $93million, US Department of Defence face mask filter contract, worth a potential $127million, and a 10 year contract to supply NATO with the FM50 face mask system. This was reflected in its 2020 first half results, when Avon announced an unprecedented growth in operating profit of 20.6% compared to last year and an increase in the interim dividend of 30% to 9p per share.Despite a premium P/E ratio of 43, I still think Avon Rubber is an attractive share; however, the true success of this year will be shown in Avon’s full-year results, set to be announced on 18th November. If recent months are any indication to go by, I expect this year to be a record year for this UK growth share.Both Codemasters and Avon Rubber have shown a resilience to the pandemic as well as a strong capacity to sustain growth, making them two of the best UK growth shares that I could buy and hold in my portfolio.

Friday Funnies – Murray Mexted’s classic commentary

first_imgFriday Apr 18, 2008 Friday Funnies – Murray Mexted’s classic commentary Murray Mexted, who has played 34 Tests for New Zealand and captained the All Blacks on seven occasions, is better known nowadays for his colourful commentary alongside Grant Nisbett. Never one to shy away from an opportunity to twist something into a sexual reference, the ex-Number Eight has provided the rugby world (in the Southern Hemisphere anyway) with more than a few laughs. A few other classic Mexted one-liners are:– “Well, either side could win it, or it could be a draw.” – “You don’t like to see hookers going down on players like that.” – “I haven’t had a knee operation on any other part of my body.” – “Its all tied up at 14-13” – “Andy Ellis – the 21 year old, who turned 22 a few weeks ago”Here’s a short compilation of some of the character’s finer moments behind the microphone.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 30 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The first condition which dictated the structure’s shape was the desire to erect a building of considerable size on a relatively small piece of land (with an area of about 900 sqm).Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiAs a result, the house was built in an L-shape and situated in the corner of the plot.Though very complex ideas were incorporated into the building’s design, its final form is relatively simple.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiIn the initial design phase, the building was to be crowned with an asymmetric, gabled roof. Yet the necessity of creating an additional space while preserving the original layout of the ground floor forced a revision of the initial concept. Besides the functional program, the investor’s only guidelines concerned custom floor heights (3.85 m for the ground floor and 3 m for the first floor). Other than that, we had complete freedom in our decision making.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiWe strove to create a building that expressed itself simply, with clear divisions of materials and colors. In creating its façade, we decided to make use of concrete, plaster and African wood.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanThe combination of the raw, loft-style concrete form of the garage with the graphite form of the living quarters gave rise to a contrasting composition. Its most striking feature is the way the smooth surface of the living area is cut by an irregular orthogonal grid of rustication. We sought to balance the coolness of the main materials used in the façade with knotless African okoume wood. This wood lent clarity to the façade and visually insulated the building.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiWe moderated the building’s monumentality with a large number of windows, which gave lightness to the structure and provided good illumination to its interior. During the creative process, we applied the principle of special subtraction rather than addition or ornamentation. We wanted to convey the impression of a cold cuboid with an interior made of wood, so we consistently covered surfaces created by “removing” fragments of the structure with okoume timbering. This visual cut gave rise to the terraces occupying part of the ground and first floors. This move allowed us to maintain the cubic shape of the main structure and simultaneously maximize the surface area available for greenery. Taken as a whole, the house was to be a platform floating in a sea of green, one the residents would not want to leave.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiThe minimalist interiors match the aesthetics of the elevation – contrasting colors, white and graphite, and concrete, wood and glass are used here to create the atmosphere. The large area devoted to windows allows the presence of greenery from the yard to be felt inside.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiThe house was designed in accordance with the principles of efficient energy construction. By facing the windows to the southwest and keeping the structure relatively closed off from the north, we reduced the amount of energy needed to heat the house. The building is equipped with mechanical ventilation heat recovery, a ground heat exchanger and a wall air intake grill. The thermal insulation used exceeds the standards required in Poland.Project gallerySee allShow lessIzmo Summer School 2016 – Make a Green Public Space!WorkshopLighting Without a BulbIdeas Share Save this picture!© Jan Karol Gołębiewski+ 22 Share CopyAbout this officeBeczak / Beczak / ArchitekciOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKonstancin-JeziornaPolandPublished on May 04, 2016Cite: “SIO House / Beczak / Beczak / Architekci” 04 May 2016.

Obama Administration Has Plan to Get TPA Approval

first_img Obama Administration Has Plan to Get TPA Approval SHARE By Gary Truitt – Feb 21, 2014 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Obama Administration Has Plan to Get TPA Approval The Obama Administration plans to give Congress reason to approve Trade Promotion Authority by negotiating a Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement they can’t pass up. According to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman – the votes are there as long as the Administration brings back a good agreement. He says the focus is to do just that – including for agriculture. Froman reports spending time on Capitol Hill with both parties to lay the foundation for broad bipartisan support of TPA legislation. He says Congress has recognized the infeasibility of designating more than 500 people – their full membership – as trade negotiators. Froman also says the Administration recognizes the importance of agriculture in not just the TPP negotiations – but also the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the European Union.He says increasing ag trade is important to the entire U.S. economy. That’s why he’s looking to those in agriculture to urge Congress to grant President Obama the trade promotion authority he needs to assure leaders of other countries that Congress will vote deals up or down rather than amending them.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleEPA Proposes New Pesticide Exposure Safety MeasuresNext articleAgriculture Needs A Safety Net to Protect US From the Government Gary Truittlast_img read more

FFA Members Provide Warm Welcome for President Trump

Hoosier Ag Today was there as he told the young people in the room that there was no group better prepared for real life than FFA members.“You know that success only comes through hard work and perseverance. You know that very well. You know that nothing compares to the satisfaction of an achievement earned and built with your own sweat, your own skill, and with your own two hands.”He discussed the farm bill and asked for time.“We’re fighting very hard for a terrific farm bill that includes work requirements for food stamps… And don’t worry about the farm bill. The farm bill we can sign, I could have signed it three months ago, but we’re trying to make a good bill. Is it okay if I take a little longer?”The president also addressed the trade war with China, though he didn’t want to use the word “war”.“They’ve been doing very well against us for 25-30 years. They’ve been doing beyond well. Taking out $500 billion a year out of the United States. Would you say that’s a lot? That’s a lot of corn. That’s a lot a wheat. That’s a lot of soybeans. I said, ‘you can’t do that.’ So, we’re in a trade dispute, I want to use that word because it’s a nice soft word, but we’re going to win. You know why? Because we always win…How we got put in this position in the first place is ridiculous.”Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue also spoke at the final general session for the 91st FFA National Convention and Expo.

first_img February 24, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 More attacks on journalists during local elections June 4, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is disturbed by the physical attacks on seven journalists in two separate incidents during yesterday’s municipal and district elections as well as the attacks on two other journalists during 18 February’s general election.“The violence against journalists during these two elections reached alarming proportions and seems to have been targeted,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “Politicians must control their anger and must appeal for calm and restraint on the part of their supporters for the sake of free expression and the public’s right to news and information. Journalists must not be turned into scapegoats.”Julliard added: “The Ugandan media seemed to deeply hated by part of the political class and there is risk that impunity could become the rule. We urge the judicial authorities to prosecute those responsible for physical attacks on journalists and to use exemplary severity in these cases.”The seven journalists involved in yesterday’s two incidents were the victims of exceptional violence.In one incident, supporters of ruling party candidate Peter Ssematimba armed with sticks tried to lynch six journalists at the Kakeeka polling station in the Kampala district of Lubaga. Angry about media coverage of irregularities, Ssematimba’s supporters seem to have deliberately set a trap for the journalists, telling them to come to the polling station at 10 a.m. to see Ssematimba cast his vote, when in fact he had already voted.Ssematimba’s supporters first attacked police officers at the polling station and then turned on the journalist, several of whom had to be hospitalized. Channel 44 TV cameraman Nixon Bbaale sustained a serious head injury. Brian Nsimbe of Channel 44 sustained an arm injury. Florence Nabukeera and Christine Namatumbwe of Metro FM had equipment and personal items taken from her. Uganda Broadcasting Corporation Television reporter Jane Anyango was injured by blows to the face and a leg. And Lydia Nabazziwa of Bukedde TV sustained a serious ear injury.In the other incident, photographer George Sidel Arinaitwe of the magazine Red Pepper was attacked by supporters of Kampala central division chairman Godfrey Amooti Nyakana at the Railway Park polling station when he tried to investigate possible voting fraud. Nyakana took Arinaitwe’s camera and then his thugs beat him up.Two journalists – Julius Odeke, a freelancer who works for Red Pepper and the newspaper Razer, and Gerald Mutembu of Wavah Broadcasting Service (WBS) – were the victims of violence in the east of the country during the 18 February general election. Odeke was shot in the knee by a minister’s bodyguard .Last year, two journalists were murdered in separate incidents while a gay rights activist was murdered last month .
