Why I think the FTSE 100 is cheap given the fusion news

first_img 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Why I think the FTSE 100 is cheap given the fusion news Jay Yao | Friday, 23rd October, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. See all posts by Jay Yao In the beginning of September, the market cap of one company, Apple, surpassed the collective market cap of the entire FTSE 100. Given that the FTSE 100 consists of many leading global multinational companies, Apple’s achievement is pretty breathtaking. So how did one company achieve so much?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…Well, Apple did it by riding the development of mobile computing. Apple got into the smartphone trend at just the right time with the original iPhone. The company has dominated the lucrative high end of the market ever since. The company makes great products and has created a ecosystem that’s hard to leave. Speaking of development, I think another big one could eventually rival the smartphone in scale and benefits. I’m talking about the development of fusion technology. A group of MIT-associated scientists recently announced there’s a good chance fusion might be commercially viable by the 2030s. This would be more than a decade sooner than many had previously expected. I think the announcement is bullish news for the FTSE 100. Here’s why. More sustainable futureIf fusion is commercialised a decade earlier than expected, it could help reduce global warming. This in turn could lower the level of economic destruction caused by rising temperatures. Consumers would have more money to spend, and the FTSE 100 would likely have higher sales and profits given the global nature of many of its components. More importantly, the planet will be more sustainable, arguably making the FTSE 100’s earnings more sustainable. If the world is more sustainable, the Footsie should also have a higher valuation, in my opinion, all else being equal. Fusion technology could also lower the cost of energy, which would also benefit many companies in the leading British index.Why fusion isn’t doing much for the FTSE 100 nowWhile I think the fusion breakthrough will likely benefit the FTSE 100, the index didn’t rally on the news. The index declined the day after the news made headlines on 29 September, As of 22 October, the index is actually lower than it was in late September. I think one reason for the index not rallying on the news is that the benefit of fusion is still years away. There is still a lot of work to be done. Given that many in the stock market only care about next quarter or next year, the ‘good news’ isn’t priced in. Nevertheless, as a long-term investor in the FTSE 100, I think the announcement offers a potential opportunity. As the technology becomes more viable, I think the market will factor in more of the fusion’s net benefit and the FTSE 100’s overall valuation will benefit. If management captures the opportunity correctly, I think the fusion news could be good for FTSE 100 components such as BP, too. CheapSpeaking of valuation, I believe the Footsie index is cheap given its year-to-date decline. With a potential economic recovery next year, I think optimism could return and the stock market could rebound. There may still be a lot of short-term volatility and potentially more downside given the economic slowdown caused by Covid-19. But from perspective, the future’s still bright. Thanks to the recent advancements in fusion, it could be even brighter. center_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.

Rocky Elsom, Jerry Collins and their ProD2 adventure with Narbonne

first_img Old enemies: Rocky Elsom and Jerry Collins scrapping it out back in 2004 Proud ProD2 outfit Narbonne are battling hard to avoid the drop despite an ambitious Australian overhaul that saved the French club. By John Davidson The Parc des Sports Et de L’Amitie stadium was rocking, flares were going off and the fans celebrated with gusto. Racing Club de Narbonne Mediterannee, better known as RC Narbonne, had just pulled off a famous ten-point derby win over arch-rivals Perpignan. Saturday’s victory, inspired by a two-try haul from former All Black Jerry Collins, had given Narbonne a tiny amount of breathing space in its relegation dogfight. With just four matches in France’s ProD2 season left, the Orange and Blacks sit in 14th place on 41 points, the same number as 13th ranked US Dax and one point above Bourgoin in 15th place.Of the three clubs, Narbonne has the easiest run in and crucially faces both Bourgoin and US Dax on its home turf. It is in the box seat to survive and there’s no denying that relegation would be a bitter blow after the heights of the 2013-2014 campaign. In the previous season Narbonne had finished fifth, with 18 wins from its 30 matches, and had almost gone up to the Top 14. The small club from Languedoc-Roussilon had gone down to Agen 25-17 in the semi-finals, but had performed admirably.In comparison, 2014-2015 has tough. Narbonne lost its scrum-half, ex-Wallaby Josh Valentine, to a big-money move to Beziers while a number of other key players departed. The club has been plagued by injuries and for the past few weeks the likes of half-back Brett Sheehan and forward Lei Tomiki have been sidelined. But the January arrival of New Zealand great Collins from the wilderness, as the medical joker replacement for former Australia skipper Rocky Elsom, has helped spark a turnaround.Big time: Lei Tomiki for Narbonne in the Top 14 in 2007Narbonne have won three of their past five matches and will be boosted by the return of Tomiki and Sheehan before the end of the season. “Last season no one expected anything and we did really well,” Tomiki says. “And this year, it was probably the same thing but I think everyone’s kind of caught on to it. We’re a bit of a target. The main focus is to stay up. I think the boys are up for it.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Remaining in ProD2 is vital for a club as ambitious as Narbonne and for one that has experienced a huge amount of change in the past few years. Relegated from the Top 14 in 2008, it almost went under three years ago. Bought by an Australian consortium and now majority-owned by Elsom, Narbonne’s finances have been brought back into control. Employing their own version of a rugby ‘Moneyball’ strategy, Elsom and fellow Australians in club president Anthony Hill and coach Justin Harrison have cut costs and initiated a restructure. Using their southern hemisphere contacts they have brought in a load of antipodean cattle, a mixture of seasoned Super Rugby professionals and younger players, and paired them with local French talent.Showing you how it’s done: Justin Harrison playing with BathUnable to compete with the big bucks thrown around by the larger club, Narbonne have raised performance standards and increased its reliance on state of the art sports science programs to close the gap. The club’s model is to spot talent early and develop it, selling it on to rival outfits when necessary, while at the same time increasing its sponsorship base and financial strength. New sponsors have been enticed, crowds have gone up and Narbonne’s engagement with the local community has increased. “That’s one thing I found about coming to Narbonne, the whole culture of the place and the community gets behind their team,” Sheenan says. “It’s their passion… obviously we haven’t had the best success on the field this year but they still rock up. They celebrate with you and they bleed with you. It’s a great environment to be in.” French rugby is changing rapidly and Narbonne want to be part of that bright future. The Top 14 may be swimming with cash but the step up to that top level is not easy. Narbonne’s mixture of sound spending, canny recruitment and innovation is different to the ProD2’s status quo, but could pay off in the long run. “You want to tilt the probability dramatically in your favour to be able to win,” Elsom explains. “It’s one thing that good teams do all the time. So New Zealand certainly have excellent players, but they also have things stacked in their favour because they’ve made it that way. Things like the performance program, the talent and development programs, so the young guys coming through. And also better utilising the resources in the town, connecting with other sports and having a stronger link with the average punter.”In the May issue of Rugby World – in shops now – we talk to some of the former Test stars and career pros plying their trade in ProD2.

The environmental impact of the building has been reduced by the large openings on the South facade, the brises soleils, the North side blind facade, and a 25cm thick insulation has been incorporated into the timber frame and a crossing ventilation system.Project gallerySee allShow lessInside Johannesburg’s Infamous Ponte City TowerVideosMVRDV Exhibits Furniture Series “Vertical Village” at Milan Design WeekArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/495330/maison-l-atelier-56s Clipboard 2014 CopyHouses•Bruz, France ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/495330/maison-l-atelier-56s Clipboard Area:  90 m² Area:  90 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Interiors: center_img Save this picture!© Jeremías Gonzalez+ 25 Share ArchDaily Projects France Architects: Atelier 56S Area Area of this architecture project Vallais Masonry: “COPY” Houses Year:  Batieco35 Maison L / Atelier 56S last_img read more

Well-known pan-Arab daily censored

first_img News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa News RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) expressed its concern today at the imposing of pre-distribution censorship on the respected pan-Arab daily paper Al-Hayat and accused the government of wanting to “punish any media criticism” of the authorities. “Things are now moving backwards after a small degree of press liberalisation over the past few months,” RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard noted in a letter to information minister Fuad al-Farsi. “This is the second time in a week that the authorities have exerted pressure on major newspapers.”. Saudi Arabia’s King Ibn al-Saud, was added to RSF’s worldwide list of “predators of press freedom” last November. The minister ordered censorship of Al-Hayat from 22 March following an editorial the previous day by its Riyadh bureau chief, Daud Shurayan, criticising what the minister had said about censorship at a meeting with local newspaper editors. The minister had forbidden the press to publish his remarks. Shurayan wrote that he did not consider what had been said to be “state secrets.”A royal decree last year authorised Al-Hayat (owned by the son of defence minister Prince Khaled bin Sultan), along with Saudi newspapers and another respected pan-Arab daily, Ash Sharq al-Awsat, to be distributed without being censored. On 18 March, the interior minister, Prince Nayef, ordered the dismissal of Mohammed al-Mukhtar al-Fal, editor-in-chief of the daily paper Al-Madina, eight days after he published a poem by Abdul Mohsen Musalam, called “The Corrupt on Earth,” which accused judges of corruption and abuses. The poet, one of the country’s best known, wrote that it was “sad that in the Muslim world, justice is suffering from a few judges who care for nothing but their bank accounts.” Musalam was arrested on 16 March and imprisoned in Jeddah.
