Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. 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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price hasn’t taken part in the stock market rally we’ve seen over the last year. While the FTSE 100 is up by 30% from last year’s lows, Tesco shares are largely unchanged.I think the UK’s largest supermarket offers good value at current levels. I’m considering buying the shares for my portfolio, as I think they could provide long-term income and growth.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…A return to growth?The coronavirus pandemic triggered a period of intense activity and upheaval for supermarkets. I think it’s fair to say Tesco and its peers had never faced anything like it before.Tesco seems to have coped well. The group doubled its home delivery capacity and launched the ‘Aldi Price Match’ promotion in March. According to Kantar market research data, this saw Tesco take market share from Aldi for the first time in 10 years.The company’s large stores also enjoyed a comeback. In recent years, supermarkets have been regretting some of their largest stores. But Tesco says the return of the weekly shop resulted in strong sales growth at these stores.Although Tesco’s sales benefited during the pandemic, profits didn’t. Management expects to report additional Covid-19 costs of £810m for the year to 29 February. These costs will hit profits, but I expect the situation to improve steadily during the current year.City analysts share my view. They expect Tesco’s pre-tax profit to rise from £1,285m in 2020/21 to £1,873m in 2021/22 — a 45% increase.Why I think Tesco’s share price is cheapIt’s not often a FTSE 100 company is expected to report such a dramatic surge in profitability. And it’s true that this should be a one-off gain as the business returns to normal operations.Even so, I don’t think Tesco’s share price reflects the group’s expected recovery. The pandemic hasn’t just affected the company’s store operations. Its wholesale business, which supplies restaurants and cafes, has been hit hard by lockdown too.If Tesco’s profits rise as expected this year, my analysis suggests the retailer’s surplus cash — known as free cash flow — should also increase. If I’m right, then new CEO Ken Murphy will be able to afford to rebuild the dividend quite quickly.Broker forecasts suggest a payout of 10.7p for 2021/22. That gives the stock a forecast dividend yield of 4.7%. That’s a lot higher than the FTSE 100 average of 3.1%.I’d buy Tesco for my ISA todayI reckon that Tesco shares would be a good fit for my Stocks and Shares ISA. I expect the UK’s largest supermarket to provide a reliable income and steady growth over the coming years.Tesco and its main rivals were caught out by the rapid growth of Lidl and Aldi and they remain a threat. But I hope those days are past and Tesco has the measure of the big discounters. Of course, they won’t take Tesco’s resurgence lying down but I think it’s unlikely to allow them to continue expanding as fast as they have in the past.At a share price of 225p, Tesco stock is valued at 11 times forecast earnings. I’d be happy to buy the shares for my portfolio at this level. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

We have a fantastic group of men who have all made the most of this week, building relationships and having fun with each other as well as learning new things and formulating our game plan. There’s been lots of good-natured banter between the teams and a lot of parochial rivalry.”“The only thing missing at the stadium will be the fans and we’re really disappointed we can’t share the experience there with them.  We know there will be a huge audience watching at home so we hope they’ll enjoy what’s shaping up as match for the history books,” Mooar said.

first_imgBoone, IowaStanding Rock Solidarity demonstrators gathered here on Sept. 22 to protest Dakota Access Pipeline construction and “to put people and planet first.” The Iowa Utilities Board, appointed by Gov. Terry Branstad, in March voted to approve the use of eminent domain, or seizure of personal property by the state, for the pipeline’s construction. The pipeline, which is slated to run through both North and South Dakota, Illinois and Iowa, is owned by Energy Transfer Partners L.P., a Houston, Texas corporation.The Midwest Mobilization was formed in response to the pipeline, comprised of such organizations as Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, Bold Iowa, 100 Grannies, the Bakken Pipeline Resistance and others to show solidarity with the resistance of Indigenous Nations against DAPL, with allies from Illinois, Minnesota and South Dakota.Iowa CCI organizer Adam Mason said in a Sept. 23 press release, “175 water protectors from across the Midwest — tribes, students, farmers, nurses and more — united in Boone County where Dakota Access is currently drilling under the Des Moines River [near Pilot Mound].”The Midwest Mobilization rally kicked off at the Boone County Fairgrounds, where three activist workshops were conducted. Afterward, a 60-car caravan traveled from the fairgrounds to the Iowa DAPL construction site. Using 12 vehicles, they blocked an access road on 130th Street to stop Dakota Access trucks from entering or leaving.DAPL construction in Illinois and South Dakota has been completed, making Iowa and North Dakota “the key battlegrounds left in the pipeline resistance,” according to Iowa CCI organizers.In an additional victory in this fight, suits filed against Bold Iowa and its director, Ed Fallon, as well as against Iowa CCI and Mason, have been dismissed by a federal judge. Mason said the company had “aimed to silence our ongoing peaceful, nonviolent, direct actions to stop construction of this pipeline that threatens land, water and climate.”Since the start of construction, peaceful demonstrators have been harassed and arrested by local police and state troopers. Some 28 Iowans were arrested on Aug. 31 for “blocking the roadways into Dakota Access’s worker staging area outside of Boone,” according to Mason.Bakken Pipeline Resistance activist Mark Edwards said on Sept. 5, “One spill, for 1 hour, has the potential to leave 1 million gallons of toxic crude” in the Des Moines River and contaminate other water supplies.”Christine Nobiss, founder of Iowa to the Camp of Sacred Stones and a descendent of the Plains Cree and Saulteaux nations, said the endgame of the anti-DAPL movement is to confront climate change. “We are being led toward a mass extinction event by our greed and amazing ability to evade the obvious and scary truth.”Organizers want to continue putting pressure on the Obama administration, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and others complicit in the pipeline’s construction.Activist Sylvana Flute, a member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate nation, told Iowans, “We are going back to Standing Rock, and we are going to spread the word. We are all in this together, and we are here to support you.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The109: Community hosts fundraiser to support injured Fort Worth officer Claire Girmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/claire-girman/ printWhen a law enforcement officer can no longer report for duty, leave it to the community to bring support to the front line.Sherri Aaron, wife of Mansfield Police Chief Tracy Aaron, is the mastermind behind a fundraising event honoring the family of injured Fort Worth Police Officer Matt Pearce.Aaron and her team have organized a fundraiser for Monday, March 28 with city police associations and various Chick-Fil-A’s across the area to raise money for the family of Officer Pearce.“Chick-Fil-A is very good about being able to do fundraisers like this,” Aaron said. “They really do support the men and women in blue in law enforcement.”She said she and her staff would like to raise $50,000 for the family of Officer Pearce.The restaurant locations are donating 20-percent of their sales between 5 and 9 p.m. Monday to the family of Officer Pearce. Aaron said some locations are donating 20-percent of their sales from the entire day. T-shirts honoring the wounded officer will also be sold at the various restaurant locations, and donations for the family will be accepted.Aaron said the fundraiser will help support the officer’s family financially, as Officer Pearce continues his recovery.One reason this fundraiser is so important Aaron said is because it focuses on helping the family of an officer who has been injured, which is different than if an officer is killed in the line of duty. She said that while there are many foundations that support a family for an officer who is killed, that’s not always the case for one who is injured. Officers who are injured can receive worker’s compensation, but Aaron said that’s considered “nothing.”“A lot of officers have to work part-time, so if an officer loses all of his part-time, it puts a financial burden on the entire family,” Aaron said. “This [support] will help relieve some of the financial burden while Officer Pearce can hopefully make a full recovery.”Aaron said many have expressed wanting to get behind the fundraiser and the family of Officer Pearce.“When we first started preparing for the fundraiser, Burleson reached out to us expressing how much they wanted to be involved,”Aaron said. “Then, Benbrook contacted us, along with Fort Worth. It’s just been an outpouring of everyone wanting to help.”[View the story “Officer Pearce Fundraiser” on Storify]Aaron said law enforcement officers will be at each Chick-Fil-A location directing traffic.“The Police Officer Associations within these cities, they’re joining together,” Aaron said. “They want to stand shoulder-to-shoulder to show their support for the Fort Worth Police Department and for Officer Pearce.”Aaron said social media has been an effective way people are showing their support for the officer and his family and that the Pearce family has been keeping up with.“We chose the hashtag ‘#TeamPearce’ because we wanted people to take a picture with the shirt and tag it,” Aaron said. “It means so much to them to see everyone’s support and to see this event blossom throughout the community.”[<a href=”//storify.com/cgirman/teampearce” target=”_blank”>View the story “#TeamPearce” on Storify</a>]Officer Pearce is still recovering at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas.

PIC: MAXWELLPHOTOGRAPHY.IEThe impact of aviation, with Shannon Airport’s role pivotal, in the development of Ireland has been recognised in a major award, ahead of projects such as the state motorway programme and even the introduction of the Smoking Ban.The development of Shannon, Dublin and Cork airports has been recognised as the most influential project undertaken in Ireland over the past 50 years by the Irish Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The ‘Expansion of Ireland’s International Airports’ project was announced as the winner of special PMI anniversary accolade at the Ireland Chapters’ annual National Project Awards on Thursday, November 14, at the Dublin offices of award sponsors PwC in Spencer Dock.The ‘Expansion of Ireland’s International Airports’ was chosen by public vote from a stellar shortlist of eight from nearly 100 initially suggested projects. The shortlist included the Guinness Storehouse; Introduction of the Smoking Ban; Luas Light-rail System; Redevelopment of Croke Park; Regeneration of Dublin Docklands; State Motorway Programme; and The Wild Atlantic Way.Welcoming the award, Shannon Group Chief Executive Mary Considine said: “We are very proud of the influence Shannon Airport has had and continues to have on Ireland’s economic success. Shannon is now and always was an innovator; it’s in our DNA, from the establishment of the world’s first Duty-Free shop in 1947, now grown into a multi-billion dollar global industry, to being the first airport in the world, outside of the Americas, to provide full US Preclearance facilities, making arrival in the US easier and faster. More recently we were also the first airport in Europe to establish an airport sensory room for our customers.“This year we celebrated the 80th anniversary of the landing of the first passenger aircraft, and as a central core of Shannon Group, the airport continues to be a driving force for economic growth in the West of Ireland. It does this through the delivery of global air connectivity to enhance the region attractiveness as a location for FDI and indigenous companies and boosts the tourism industry by providing overseas visitors with gateway access to the Wild Atlantic Way.“Shannon was the birth place of aircraft leasing and today we are continuing to support Shannon’s aviation cluster through our International Aviation Services Centre (IASC). We are very proud and grateful for the honour bestowed on us by Irish public, and of the role that Shannon Airport, through our dedicated employees past and present, has played in growing the Irish economy over the past 50 years.” WhatsApp TAGSairportbusinessClareindustryLimerick City and CountyNewsShannonTransporttravel Facebook Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic center_img Previous articlePike Overcome Ballynanty with Controlled DisplayNext articleAlby Mathewson set to leave Munster on Saturday Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie BusinessNewsShannon Airport’s influence has been central in Irish aviation – Shannon Group CEO Mary ConsidineBy Staff Reporter – November 18, 2019 432 Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up Twitter Linkedin Print Limerick on Covid watch list TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!last_img read more
