Stock investing: 2 of the best FTSE 100 shares I’d buy right now

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Deciding which FTSE 100 shares are the best stocks to buy right now is a difficult task. It’s also likely to lead to very different opinions among investors as to which companies represent the most attractive destination for stock investing.However, these two stocks outlined below appear to offer long-term capital growth potential. Their strategies suggest they have the capacity to outperform many of their sector peers over the coming years.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…Cheap FTSE 100 sharesWhile many FTSE 100 shares have bounced back from the 2020 stock market crash, commercial property company Landsec isn’t among them. It continues to trade around 35% down on its price level from a year ago.As such, the stock could be among the best shares to buy now because of its low valuation. It has a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 0.6. This suggests it could offer a wide margin of safety that provides scope for capital gains.Of course, Landsec arguably faces a tougher outlook than many FTSE 100 shares at the present time. A slowdown in demand for retail and office space caused by the pandemic could impact negatively on the company’s financial prospects.However, its plan to exit hotels, leisure and retail parks in favour of faster-growing areas could improve its financial outlook. A forecast improvement in the performance of the UK economy may also lead to stronger operating conditions for the business in the coming years. As such, it could offer good value for money after its recent share price decline.Long-term growth opportunitiesAs well as cheap FTSE 100 shares, it’s possible to purchase companies with attractive long-term growth outlooks. Reckitt Benckiser is one that may fall into this category. And that could make it one of the best shares to buy now.The company is implementing a revised strategy that focuses on expanding its existing products into new markets and delivering greater innovation in existing areas. For example, hygiene products, such as Dettol and Lysol, expanded their presence into 19 new markets in 2020. Alongside greater innovation within its brands, this could have a positive impact on the company’s long-term performance.Clearly, Reckitt Benckiser has experienced a rise in sales for its health and hygiene-related products during the coronavirus pandemic. This means it now has a valuation which is higher than for most FTSE 100 shares. In fact, it now has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 20. This may mean it lacks a margin of safety versus index peers. Meanwhile, demand for its products could ebb as the pandemic slows down over the long run.However, the company’s growth plans could stimulate its financial performance. This could push its share price higher and enable it to deliver stronger returns than many of its industry peers, as well as the wider FTSE 100. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Replacing a dilapidated single-storey dwelling sited between two of Malta’s most beloved villages, Threeplusone takes cues from its surrounding context whilst addressing contemporary living needs, prioritising light, space and functionality.

The building’s distinct curved form works cohesively with the articulation of the street, bending subtly along its corner site. Its projecting terraces create valuable shading to lower levels and maximise the size of the living spaces inside. At street level, the building’s perimeter is lined with trees, lending privacy to the office space tucked within the semi-basement level below.Save this picture!© Alex AttardThe spacious terraces allow light to cascade into the south-facing living areas at the front of the building. Inside, the building works both to maximise usable space and achieve continuity between indoor and outdoor areas.

QS BREAKING ALERT: ROSEN, A GLOBALLY RECOGNIZED LAW FIRM, Encourages QuantumScape Corporation Investors with…

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Twitter NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 19, 2021– WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of QuantumScape Corporation (NYSE: QS) between November 27, 2020 and December 31, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”) of the important March 8, 2021 lead plaintiff deadline. SO WHAT: If you purchased QuantumScape securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement. WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the QuantumScape class action, go to http://www.rosenlegal.com/cases-register-2017.html or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than March 8, 2021. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience or resources. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 3 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020 founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers. DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) QuantumScape’s purported success related to its solid-state battery power, battery life, and energy density were significantly overstated; (2) QuantumScape’s battery technology was not sufficient for electric vehicle performance as it would not be able to withstand the aggressive automotive environment; (3) QuantumScape’s battery technology likely provided no meaningful improvement over existing battery technology; (4) QuantumScape is unlikely to be able to scale its technology to the multi-layer cell necessary to power electric vehicles (5) the successful commercialization of QuantumScape’s battery technology was subject to much more significant risks and uncertainties than defendants had disclosed; and (6) as a result of the foregoing, defendants materially overstated the value and prospects of QuantumScape’s battery technology. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages. To join the QuantumScape class action, go to http://www.rosenlegal.com/cases-register-2017.html or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email [email protected] or [email protected] for information on the class action. No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

Much-needed rain on the way for California later this week

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The fire danger in California continues on Sunday, but firefighters in the region are about to get a needed respite.A red flag warning is in effect for the Sacramento area, near the Camp Fire, due to low relative humidity and the potential for wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph. This will not only make it difficult to fight existing fires, but could spread new fires if they were to ignite.But rain is on the way for the West Coast beginning late Tuesday night. This is extremely good news for the firefighting efforts in California. Also, this will help alleviate the widespread air quality issues in the state.The bad news is too much rain on the scorched ground could cause mudslides and debris flows. It is important to watch the progression of the pattern as some areas could see several inches of rain by the end of the week.Cold travel outlook for eastern USAnother cold blast is on the way for one of the busiest travel days of the year.Wind chill values will be below zero in northern Minnesota on Wednesday morning, while 20 degree wind chills extend as far south as Kansas City, Missouri, and Nashville, Tennessee. Boston and New York will feel like the teens and 20s, and a few record-cold values are possible on Tuesday morning in the Plains and upper Midwest.Though it will be cold in the Plains and Northeast, the weather is looking good overall for both road and air travelers across the majority of the country.There are select trouble spots due to the threat of rain, including the Pacific Northwest through central California and south Texas along the Gulf of Mexico.Mild weather will stick to the southern half of the country.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Missing Idaho mom arrested in Hawaii, held on $5 million bail

first_imgRexburg Police Department(KAUA’I, Hawaii) — Lori Vallow, the 47-year-old woman wanted by authorities in Idaho in connection to the September disappearance of her two children, was arrested in Hawaii on Thursday.Vallow, under investigation by the Rexburg Police Department, was arrested by the Kaua’i Police Department on a warrant issued by Madison County, Idaho.She’s facing multiple charges, including two felony counts of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children, police said in a statement. Her bail has been set at $5 million.Her children, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old Joshua “J.J.” Vallow, have been missing about five months. She failed to comply with a court order to produce them in Madison County by Jan. 30.“First of all, we wish to thank the public for the massive outpouring of concern regarding this case,” Kaua’i Chief of Police Todd G. Raybuck said in the statement. “We also want to thank everyone for their patience while investigators worked diligently to comprehensively gather everything they needed in order to obtain this arrest warrant.”Vallow is scheduled to attend a court hearing in Kaua’i and be given the opportunity to waive or contest her extradition to Idaho, where she’d face criminal charges. A date for that hearing hasn’t been set.Her children were last seen in Idaho. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Thermal analysis of the plant encapsulation-dehydration cryopreservation protocol using silica gel as the desiccant

first_imgThe encapsulation-dehydration cryopreservation protocol is critically dependent upon the evaporative desiccation step, which must optimise survival with the retention of glass stability on sample cooling and rewarming. Desiccation is usually achieved evaporatively by drying in a sterile airflow. However, chemical desiccation using silica gel has advantages for laboratories that do not have environmental control and/or which are exposed to high relative humidities and risks of microbial contamination. This study characterised thermal profiles of silica gel-desiccated encapsulated shoot-tips of two Ribes species using Differential Scanning Calorimetry. For both species silica gel-desiccation at 16°C for 5 h decreased bead water content from ca.75 to 28% fresh weight (3.8 to 0.4 g.g-1 dry weight); further desiccation (for 6 and 7 h) reduced the bead water content to 21% (0.3 g.g-1 dry weight). These changes in water status altered the thermal properties of beads for both species. After 7 h desiccation over silica gel stable glass transitions were observed on both cooling and rewarming of beads containing meristems. Tg mid-point temperatures ranged from -78 to -51°C (cooling) and from -88 to -54°C (warming) [at cooling and warming rates of 10 and 5&degC min-1, respectively] after 5 to 7 h silica gel-desiccation. Post-cryopreservation viability of both species was ca. 63%. Thermal analysis studies revealed that an encapsulation/dehydration protocol using silica gel as a desiccant should comprise a minimum 5 h drying (at 16°C). This reduces bead moisture content to a critical point (ca. 0.4 g.g-1 dry weight) at which stable glasses are formed on cooling and rewarming. It is concluded that silica gel has advantages for use as a desiccant for alginate-encapsulated plant meristems by promoting stable vitrification and is useful in laboratories and/or geographical locations where environmental conditions are not under stringent control.last_img read more
