Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address 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. Human nature means that we all want to get a good deal when we buy something. This can be negotiating over buying a car or a house, or even snapping up sale bargains. This carries over into investing in the stock market. For many, buying a UK stock when it’s at all-time highs isn’t as appealing as buying a cheap UK stock. Buying when the share price is heavily in the red can make you feel that you’ve got a good deal.This view can be correct and work out well long term, but investors need to be very careful. Sometimes the stock is cheap for a reason as the business is struggling, rather than falling (perhaps unfairly) along with its peers during a market crash. Over the past 12 months, several FTSE 100 stocks are down over 50%. So are they cheap buys, or are their low prices a warning sign?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…AviationTwo stocks that fall into this category are linked to the airline sector. These are Rolls-Royce and International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG). Rolls-Royce supplies engines and works on service and maintenance. IAG owns British Airways and Aer Lingus, along with other brands. Between the two firms, the share prices are down between 70% and 84%. This is in large part due to the pandemic, with associated lockdowns and a reluctance by many to travel.Does the slump make these UK stocks cheap? This is a really tough one to answer at the moment. Rolls-Royce is struggling to operate, made evident by the news late last week about a new rights issue and bond issue, aiming to raise £5bn. IAG is also looking to raise fresh capital. In my opinion, this sector is too risky to invest in at the moment. A small speculative investment could be warranted, but I wouldn’t invest more than you’re happy to lose.OilThe other major industry that has massively underperformed over the past year is oil. Shares in BP are down 56%, with Royal Dutch Shell down 59%. Both firms have suffered indirectly from the pandemic. For example, demand for jet fuel has fallen off a cliff, which impacts revenues. Demand for petrol and diesel also slumped during Q2, although this has almost returned to normal. Pressure on the oil price has also eaten into margins. This makes the two stocks look cheap.I’m more optimistic on the two oil majors recovering in the long term. The firms are part of a small club that dominates the industry, so demand will always be shared out between them. Demand for refined products should continue to head back towards normal, as governments cannot afford to have prolonged national lockdowns as earlier this year. Further, if dividends are reinstated back to the level seen before the pandemic, this should attract a wave of income investors. So I think these shares do look cheap but potentially valuable too.Cheap UK stocks worth buyingOne of the signs of a good investor is deciding when not to buy a stock. Fear of missing out is simply not a valid investing strategy. So do your homework and see whether a stock is a cheap buy, or something to steer clear of!last_img read more

first_imgSunday Aug 3, 2014 Waratahs win Super Rugby title after nail-biting thriller with the Crusaders Adam Ashley Cooper scored twice but it was Waratahs flyhalf Bernard Foley that struck a long distance, last minute penalty to claim a well deserved 33-32 Super Rugby Final victory over the Crusaders in Sydney. It is the Waratahs’ first ever Super Rugby title. The match was played at a fantastic tempo throughout, with neither side giving in to the typical ‘finals rugby’ style of play that we’ve seen all too often in the past. This was one of the games of the year, final or not, typified by the 20-20 deadlock just minutes into the second half.In the end it came down to a big call by referee Craig Joubert at the death, as he penalised Richie McCaw at the ruck. Foley stepped up and slotted the 45 metre penalty, only just, and the rest is history, with the Waratahs winning their first ever title, in front of a record crowd of 61 823.The Waratahs had lead early on, shooting out to a 14-0 lead but the Crusaders aren’t the most successful side in Super Rugby history for nothing, and they came back to within inches of winning it, had it not been for Foley’s trusty right boot. “I was hitting them well all night and it was probably right on my distance,” the tournament’s top points scorer said. “I had to give it my all and the rugby gods were on our side.”Waratahs skipper Michael Hooper admitted that he thought Foley didn’t quite have the distance.“I thought it went under, but it went over and I was ecstatic,” Hooper said.The Waratahs join the Crusaders, Blues, Chiefs, Brumbies, Reds and Bulls as only the seventh franchise to win a Super Rugby crown.Fans, pundits and players took to twitter post match to express their joy at what they had just witnessed. This will go down as an all time classic, and rightly so. Kudos to both teams for the attitude, skill level and dogged determination they displayed throughout.ADVERTISEMENT 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.

The Bench issued notice, returnable within 2 weeks, to the Centre, Bar Council of India, State Bar Councils, each High Court’s Registrar General, and recognized High Court Bar Associations. The Bar Associations have been directed to show cause why a fund for relief cannot be set up for deserving and eligible advocates.   The suo moto cognizance for lawyer’s financial aid, will be taken up with BCI’s plea. The plea filed by the Bar Council of India highlights that the BCI itself does not have the funds to help the lawyers in need. It has therefore sought for directions to the Respondents to arrange financial assistance by way of interest free loan up to Rs. 3 lakhs each to advocates enrolled with the respective Bar Council of each State through the said Bar Council, repayable in reasonable monthly instalments at least 12 months after normal court functioning commences”. The petition, filed through Advocate SN Bhat, also seeks a direction to the Union of India and the respective State Governments to “financially support the needy advocates through respective Bar Associations by depositing the amount directly in the accounts of the said advocates after receiving the necessary details from the respective Bar Association”. The plea further avers that the prolonged closure of the courts and tribunals all over the country since March 2020 due to the lockdown has deprived the majority of the advocates their only source of income. It is highlighted that most of the advocates, especially youngsters, have no savings and are solely dependent on the working of courts for their livelihoods. “The situation of some of them is so grim that it may not be an exaggeration to say that they face virtual starvation and they require urgent and immediate financial aid and succor”, the plea states. Today, Senior Advocate Manan Kumar Mishra, Chairman of BCI, appeared before the Court. The Bench headed by the CJI dictated the Order, noting that the “unprecedented crisis demands unprecedent resolution” as the pandemic had taken a “heavy toll on the rights of the citizens, and particularly, the legal fraternity”. “The legal fraternity is restricted to income – bound by rules. Not entitled to earn income by alternative means. Closure of Courts has led to a situation which has rid them of a sizeable proportion of their income and therefore, livelihood.” The CJI further observed that it was a “dire circumstance” and that medical advice dictacted against the resumption of Courts as doing the same would jeopardise the health of judges, lawyers, and equally important, the staff of the Court. Accordingly, the Bench considered it appropriate to issue notice to all recognized Bar Associations of all High Courts to show cause why a fund for relief should not be set up for deserving and eligible advocates. The Bench also observed that it is important to determine the norms for financial aid of such institutions, and therefore, issued notice to Union of India, Bar Council of India, and all State Bar Councils, as well as the Registrar General of each High Court.   Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(MARSHALL, Mich.) —  Just four days after the March for Our Lives protests were held across the country in the wake of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, some residents of a Michigan suburb took to the streets again to protest the annual “Build Your Own AR-15” class at a local VFW hall.The class, run by a local gun dealer, sparked about two dozen protesters to descend on VFW hall 4073 which hosted the event in Marshall, Mich. on Tuesday.This is the third year that the class is being held in the space, and the recent protests and gun law debates didn’t stop it from moving forward.“We did consider [canceling], but owing to the great response we were getting, we decided to go ahead with it,” John Delaney, the quartermaster of the lodge, told ABC News.The class is run by Chris Walden, who owns a gun business in nearby Battle Creek. There are four monthly sessions where enrollees buy the various parts and build their own AR-15s.“This is an opportunity for Americans to exercise their Second Amendment right to help those who are protesting this voice their First Amendment right,” Walden told local CBS station WWMT.ABC News was not able to reach Walden for comment.Delaney said that he was present for the class on Tuesday but wasn’t planning to attend the rest of the sessions this year, having already participated twice before. He said that there were about 60 people who attended the class on Tuesday, which he said was “a little bigger” than past classes, and there were 24 people who protested peacefully outside.“I knew several of the people over on the other side of the fence there and we had a couple ladies from the protest come in and talk to us and ask questions,” he said. “It was kind of, I’d say, productive.”One of the protesters, Pam Daume, told WWMT that the timing of the event was disrespectful to the victims of school shootings.“The event is disgusting,” Daume told WWMT. “It’s a slap in the face to all of the children who have died.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgIncreasingresponsibility for T&D rests with line managers, but how much time do theyput into it and how effective is their involvement? Sue Clark asks across-section of organisations for their experiencesGaryMilesProgramme director, Roffey Park Management InstituteOursurvey of 180 line managers and team members in 1999 showed that the majorityrecognise development as an effective way to improve performance, increasemotivation or bring about change.Thekey types of development interventions most commonly used are coaching,feedback, counselling, on-the-job training, mentoring, help with the selectionof courses, work shadowing and arranging visits to other organisations.However,the survey revealed that nearly 30 per cent of line managers spend less thaneight hours a month developing others, while 47 per cent spend between eightand 16 hours on development.Timewas cited as a major barrier to effective coaching and development, whilefeedback was hampered if the culture in the organisation did not encourageopenness.Therewas also a mixed response to the idea of reward for developing people. Some seedeveloping others as a normal part of their job while others believe theyshould get a financial reward linked to team performance.Evaluatingthe development of others also appears to be a significant challenge and linemanagers clearly need more help with this.GlendaMartinTraining and development manager, Boots the Chemist, IrelandI’mnot surprised by the figures from Roffey Park, but you have to focus on theother aspects of development beyond the recognised training and developmentthat goes on between the individual and his or her line manager.AtBoots development is one of the key elements of their job, but it is often doneindirectly, for example by facilitating learning through buddy systems whereindividuals meet with their peers and share information. The line managers willset these groups up and monitor them but they won’t actually take part.Moredirectly, line managers provide coaching and leadership, and they cascadelearning down.Theyare also part of projects and working parties where groups will co-operate toachieve a goal. Developmentactivities are sandwiched between pre and post briefings that focus on how totransfer any learning back into the work place.Theirrole in training and development is crucial to the organisation.ChrisJefferiesHead of training, First QuenchThereis a danger where a training and development function exists within anorganisation that line managers, consciously or not, will not view T&D aspart of their job, especially when they have other priorities.Weemphasise the role of our line managers’ involvement in development byequipping them with coaching skills. Thenwe have a process whereby the line managers become self-sufficient. Theyidentify any training need and then solve it from their own resources.Anindividual from the team will provide the expertise to develop others, theT&D function equips them with the skills.Forexample we have been running a cascade programme where an evangelist or coachis chosen from each training event to pass on the skills to the next group. Itstarted at board level and is working its way to our 20,000 staff who are basedat 2,500 retail units around the UK.Itis a bit of a trade off, a compromise on quality. But we need to deliver agreat deal to many people rather than a little to a few.Trainingin our organisation is like fishing: we teach our people how to do it, ratherthan give them the fish.MikeSpillerGroup personnel and training director, Granada Food ServicesLinemanagers play an important role in training and development within ourorganisation as we believe it is the most effective way to improve performance andmotivation. It is sufficiently important to be included in the job descriptionsof all line managers.Professionaltrainers instruct managers on how to train, and they have developed modules andmaterials which enable the line managers to conduct the training with theirteams.Andas we promote training as a line responsibility, our trainers report to themanaging directors, thereby ensuring the training of line managers and that oftheir teams is focused on the needs of the business, individuals and teams.Wealso encourage line managers’ own development using internal and externalsources.Ifa line manager is being developed then it is more likely they will beencouraged to develop their own staff.However,training only becomes really effective when it is owned by line managers and islinked to business, individual and group needs.KirstenBarclayHuman resources manager, Welsh Development AgencyManytraining and development experts believe that individual training needs arebest identified jointly by the line manager and individual team member.Butif the individual and manager are best placed to identify individual trainingneeds, does it necessarily follow that they are best placed to identify themost appropriate means of addressing the need?Managersand their teams are often not aware of the different ways that learning canoccur and inevitably fall back upon the trainer-led course, neglecting otherlearning methodologies such as project work, CBT, professional networks, eventhe precursor of much CBT – directed reading!Nonetheless,devolving HR to the line means that managers increasingly have a role inidentifying and addressing training needs in their teams.Theinevitable next step is devolving some if not all of the training budget toline managers for their local level training.Ideallymanagers will then have an explicit objective in their annual appraisal –developing team members.
