Top FTSE 100 shares I’d buy in the coronavirus crash

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Alan Oscroft Alan Oscroft | Friday, 10th April, 2020 | More on: BA BATS DGE Enter Your Email Address The FTSE 100 is down 25% in 2020, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, and there could be worse to come. But while everyone is panicking and selling, I’ve been trying to think of my top FTSE 100 shares to buy.You could look for stocks that have fallen further than is justified and buy for recovery. Or seek shares that are resilient and have remained high. My three today cover both of those approaches.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…All-time top FTSE 100 sharesSo far in 2020, the BAE Systems (LSE: BA) share price has fallen only 5%, while FTSE 100 shares have lost an overall 25%. But BAE had put on a bit of a spurt in the first couple of months of the year. And since the coronavirus hit, the price is down 15%. That’s still better than the index.With aviation essentially on hold, the aerospace business looks like it’s under a bit of stress. But BA’s work is very much long term, and I foresee no problems with its defence contracts.Is it one of the best FTSE 100 shares for dividends? Well, BAE had proposed a 13.8p final payment for 2019, but has recently decided to defer a decision on it until half-time results on 30 July. The company says “it remains our intention to pay a dividend,” but the timing is uncertain now.Whatever happens to the 2019 final dividend, I reckon BAE is still a long-term cash cow.Consumer essentialsAre people turning to booze for comfort in these dark times? Well, the government has deemed off-licences to be sellers of essential goods. But the closure of bars and restaurants hasn’t helped Diageo (LSE: DGE).It’s not with such a short-term outlook that I approach Diageo, which I rate as another of my favourite FTSE 100 shares right now. No, I’m looking at it as a long-term buy. And the recent dip has made its shares look more attractive than usual. Diageo shares are down 19% year-to-date, and I see that as oversold. On Thursday, the company confirmed its interim dividend. But it’s decided to hold back on the second phase of its three-year capital return programme for the remainder of the current fiscal year.Back in July 2019, Diageo had intended to return a total of £4.5bn to shareholders over three years. And while that’s been suspended for now, it does indicate another highly cash-generative company. I’d buy.Bouncing FTSE 100 shareThe British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) share price did fall badly along with the rest. But it’s rebounded ahead of most, and is currently down 9% so far this year. I think that qualifies it as one of the best FTSE 100 shares in terms of resilience.The company has been paying big dividends too, and forecasts suggest a 7.5% yield in 2020. And so far, there’s been no indication that the firm will join the dividend-cutting hordes.You might prefer to avoid British American for ethical reasons, but there’s no doubt it’s a great long-term generator of cash. Tobacco might be going out of fashion, and British American shares have tumbled since mid-2017.But profits just keep growing, and the shares now command a forward price-to-earnings of only around 8.5.Judging it purely in financial terms, British American Tobacco remains one of the top FTSE 100 shares in my book. I expect growth plus dividends over the next few years. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Cheap shares boomed in November, but I see this stock as a winner for 2021!

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! November proved to be a huge relief for UK shareholders, as cheap shares rebounded on good news. First, Joe Biden beat Donald Trump to become US president #46. Second, news of three efficacious Covid-19 vaccines sent share prices soaring skywards. In the best month since January 1989 (+14.4%), the FTSE 100 index surged by almost 690 points in November. This leap of an eighth (12.4%) added £180bn to the FTSE 100’s market capitalisation. December has also got off to a good start. As I write, the Footsie has added more than 115 points (1.9%) in an early Christmas gift for investors. Though global stocks have soared since Halloween, I still believe you can buy cheap shares in quality companies today.The FTSE 100 is not expensiveAlthough UK shares have just had a great month, they’ve also suffered a grim year. For the record, the FTSE 100 has lost 1,160 points this calendar year, a dive of 15.4%. 2020 is shaping up to be the index’s worst year since 2008 (during the global financial crisis). Furthermore, the Footsie has gone nowhere this millennium and is actually lower today than it was at the turn of the century. In fact, the index first exceeded today’s levels all the way back in the spring of 1999, during the dotcom boom. That’s why I think that the index may have much further to go — and that there are too many cheap shares hiding in plain sight.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…Earlier, I quickly reviewed the performance of FTSE 100 members over the past month. I found that of 99 shares that have been in the index for at least a year, 76 gained in value over the past month. The top gainer (a well-known airline) was up 69.3%. The average gain across all 76 winners was close to a fifth (19.7%). However, 23 shares missed this broad-based rally, with the worst falling by a tenth (9.9%). I suspect my search for cheap shares would work better in the bottom half of this list.I see these cheap shares gaining in 2021For example, at #62 in the table, registering a modest gain of 6.9% in the past month, lie the cheap shares of British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS). Sin stock BATS is a FTSE 100 heavyweight. At its current share price of 2,670p, this 118-year-old British institution has a market value of £61.4bn. Thanks to its colossal revenues, earnings, and cash flows, BATS now pays the second-largest FTSE 100 dividend by size. Indeed, tobacco dividends provide a decent proportion of the income sought by income-focused funds. Even so, these cheap shares have had a disappointing 2020.At its 52-week high in mid-January, the BATS share price topped £35. Eleven months later, BATS shares are more than £8 — almost a quarter (23.9%) — cheaper. However, cigarette sales have actually climbed in some countries during this global recession. This divergence between the BATS share price and the company’s business outlook suggests that its stock is a buy. For the record, BATS shares trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of 9.8 and an earnings yield of 10.2%. In addition, the dividend yield of 7.9% a year should prove irresistible to income-seekers (but not ethical investors!). That’s why I’d happily buy these cheap shares today, ideally inside an ISA, to enjoy bumper tax-free dividends and future capital gains.

Play On the Movie – Official trailer

first_imgSunday Oct 3, 2010 Play On the Movie – Official trailer What a great time to be a rugby fan. Not only is coverage on television and online at an all time high, but the international rugby community is now being treated to yet another rugby movie. This one however, is a little different as its fully funded and made by rugby people, not Hollywood.Play On is the story of a Scottish rugby star who fails to live up to his legendary fathers ideals and successes, both as a player and as a man. Keir Kilgour fails to grasp the ethos of the game as professionalism has a bad effect on the pampered young player and he lives in his fathers shadow.He decides to leave his country and heads to the US in search of fame and fortune in the NFL. He fast becomes a small fish in a big pond, resulting in him playing amateur rugby with a group of regular guys in Kansas City. Its there that he finds the true meaning of teamwork, loyalty, and courage – all the ideals rugby was built on.He returns home with his new team as he attempts to regain the respect once afforded to him by his family and friends. In the end, Keir has to choose between his own ideals or those of his Scotland rugby legend father’s.Last year we saw the launch of Invictus, a big budget film that failed to connect with a lot of rugby fans. Another rugby movie, Forever Strong, was also somewhat of a flop as its clichd storyline, combined with some less than convincing rugby action, meant that not everyone was convinced. Play On is different in that its written, produced, and funded by rugby players. It stays true to the sport while telling a great rugby story.It will be launched exclusively online, another first. What that means is that users around the globe will be able to access the film easily and promptly. The goal is to get the rugby community behind the film, then have it transcend to other viewers, exposing them to the real reasons why we play and watch this wonderful team sport.A viral campaign has begun and by backing the movie, Rugbydump hopes to make all site visitors aware of its upcoming release, which will be December of this year. Become a fan of the Play On Facebook pageto keep up to date as well as watch other sneak previews, post your own pictures, and win great prizes.The full movie will be launched at playonthemovie.comin the form of a paid for stream and/or download. By signing up to watch, you will be entered into a draw to win a trip to New Zealand in October next year, a special time on the rugby calendar. For the first time you can have a direct impact on the success of a rugby movie. Lets get behind it and spread the word. Visit the official website at Playonthemovie.com for extra videos, photos, and special features. A draw will be held to select anyone who has posted a picture playing rugby on the site, and they will win a prize as incentive to populate the site.

Aviva Premiership semi-finals highlights wrap-up

first_imgWednesday May 16, 2012 Aviva Premiership semi-finals highlights wrap-up Leicester Tigers and Harlequins will contest the Aviva Premiership Final on May 26th following their semi-final victories over the weekend. The Tigers are favourites for many, but Harlequins don’t see it that way. A late try from Harlequins prop Joe Marler sealed a 25-23 win over Northampton Saints at The Stoop on Saturday, setting them up for an eighth consecutive Premiership final appearance.Marler, whose 77th-minute try was converted by Nick Evans, says that despite Leicester’s powerful forwards and incredible record, Quins will take it to them up front.“People expect us to the throw the ball about, it is what Harlequins have been known for over the years. We like to think we can still do that but we want an all-round game,” he said. “The scrum is a big area we have worked on this year and so is the maul. That showed out there. We’ve played in big games and we are starting to mature. We will back ourselves against anyone.“And in the set-piece, that’s where it starts. If you don’t get that right then you are going to struggle all day. We are just buzzing for Twickenham now. The final will be massive. We have had great games against Leicester. We will front up.”The Tigers beat Saracens 24-15 thanks to a great display from young flyhalf George Ford, and tries from Alesana Tuilagi and Steve Mafi. You can catch a quick summary of what took place via the official wrap-up video below.WIN Tickets to the Aviva Premiership finalWe’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for the final at Twickenham, which takes place on May 26th.

The property is situated on the edge of a small village on top of a hill, and consists of farm land, forest, residential building, barn house, apiary and wooden pavilion used as a tool shack. The client decided to replace the broken-down barn house with a new, multi-functional building, a sort of “modern Slovenian hayrack”. The building is intended for dispensing honey, sorting, handling and drying fruit, storage of crops and tools, while the spacious ground floor is intended as a meeting place to host partners from abroad and celebrate family events.Save this picture!© Miran KambičAlthough the client’s idea of a modern hayrack which would function both as a barn house and prominent protocol house seemed controversial at first, however, the idea revealed a great archetypal and development potential, which is inherent in the architecture of a hayrack in Slovenian cultural awareness. Professor Marjan Mušič compared hayracks with Greek temples due to their architectural purity and antique origin, as well as monumentality, derived from pure form. In terms of size, position and importance, the hayrack was a central structure of a homestead and the source of livelihood in general. This is where their almost sacral character stems from.Save this picture!SketchThe beauty of hayracks should not be sought in luxurious décor but rather in their proportions, harmony of strict lines, functional credibility and installation in space, giving their surroundings a monumental character. This concept originates in the Antiquity and still has the expressive power for the modern times and new tasks.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe building was placed at the end of a ‘pier’, which concludes the site of the small village and from it panoramic views of the picturesque surroundings open up. Together with the residential building and the wooden pavilion this plot of land forms a large inner grassy courtyard of the homestead. The building has a semi dug-in basement, a ground floor and the attic. The construction basis is similar to that of the double hayrack with stone corner pillars. The corners of the new building feature four strong corner pillar structures, with a 12 meter bridge construction placed in between, thus allowing large unified spaces on the ground floor and in the attic. The construction is reinforced concrete with steel roofing.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe basement, accessible via pathway directly from the farm land, is designed for dispensing and storing honey, pressing and storing fruit, storing tools and similar. The basement also features a heat pump for heating and cooling the building, as well as a basement bathroom with a sauna.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe ground floor of the building is almost empty, which is similar to a hayrack. There is also a handy open kitchen, a fireplace, the entrance hall and a staircase connecting all three floors. The ground floor is glazed with large sliding doors which can be open wide and connect the ground floor with the natural environment or the backyard.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe first floor is mostly empty. In the summer the large space is intended for various farm chores, whereas in the winter time it is used as a billiard room and fitness. The first floor also features a mini guest bedroom with bathroom and a storage room.Save this picture!© Jure GoršičThe dimensions, appearance, colour and logic of inner division of the building are based on the tradition of the hayrack. The dark façade looks similar to old wooden barnhouses in the immediate surroundings and also allows a discreet inclusion of the photovoltaic roofing into the basic volume of the building. Due to the photovoltaics on the roof, the snow guards are replaced by wide jutting roofs placed above the ground floor openings. The interior is covered with bright ash tree panels which gives the impression that the interior is hollowed from a single piece of wood. Furniture is simple and accents clean lines of the spaces.Even though the building is intended for agricultural activities of the homestead it is also an elegant »protocol« and symbolic architectural creation. With it the owner wishes to express a respectful attitude towards Slovenian cultural heritage and Slovenian constructional and architectural tradition and to the way in which buildings are placed into the environment. The bold construction of large spans which strikes us with hayracks also gives this new building an air of nobility, in harmony with the picturesque landscape of the surrounding pastoral scenery.Project gallerySee allShow lessSoccer Stadium La Balastera / Francisco MangadoSelected ProjectsThink Space Launches Latest Competition: Environment / SubtractionArchitecture News Share Projects 2014 Slovenia Architects: Arhitektura d.o.o.

Started by a teenage youth group in the early ’90s, See You at the Pole (SYATP), is a global day of student prayer that takes place on the fourth Wednesday in September each year.The event started at 8:30 a.m. and for one hour, students were supporting each other in a calm environment as others that weren’t in attendance were walking to class.Students from elementary school to college and anywhere in between are participating in SYATP. This is the fifth year that Chi Alpha, a Christian student organization, has held the event on campus.See You at the Pole welcomes all different faiths. Photo by Hunter InceChi Alpha life group leader Jessica Harper took the lead in planning this year’s event.“This event is an opportunity to gather in a public place and intercede for our generation, nation, and for our world,” Harper said.Harper said although it is organized by a Christian organization, this is not a Christian-only event and all are welcome. “’No one should live life alone,’ which is the motto of Chi Alpha,” Harper said. “We believe in the power of prayer. Prayer is our direct connection to God.”As students came and went throughout the hour, various prayer topics were brought up to pray about out loud or silently at 15-minute intervals.TCU students praying around the flagpoles in front of Sadler Hall.
