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. Royston Wild owns shares of Taylor Wimpey. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Devro. 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. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. In my opinion, buying UK shares is a great way to build funds to enjoy a comfortable retirement. It’s a particularly effective way to create wealth if I invest using a tax-efficient financial product like a Stocks and Shares ISA.There’s no guarantee that any of us will make big returns from share investing, of course. Unforeseen macroeconomic and company-specific factors can blow my expected returns well off course. But by doing diligent research and building a diversified portfolio, I have a great chance of creating some decent cash. The average stock market return sits at around 8% per year over an extended time horizon (say 10 years or more), studies show.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…Here are two UK shares I see as great long-term buys for my ISA. And I think their share prices could spring higher in the days to come.#1: A FTSE 100 heroA string of positive trading updates from the housebuilders suggest that now could be the time for me to increase my holdings in Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW). This FTSE 100 construction stock is due to release its own next set of financials on Tuesday, March 2.Taylor Wimpey said last month that “sales and production [recovered] strongly towards the end of the year” as Covid-19 restrictions on building activity and property viewings were rolled back. It’s a result that also illustrates the strength of underlying demand. Indeed, favourable lending conditions and a long-running shortage of homes helped drive the company’s order book to a vast £2.7bn as of December. I’m expecting that upcoming release to confirm that interest in its homes has remained robust since the turn of 2021.No UK share is completely without risk of course. And Taylor Wimpey is no exception. The eventual return of the Stamp Duty and changes to Help to Buy might hamper sales rates from the second half of the year. A long economic hangover from Covid-19 and our European Union withdrawal might also impact sales of its new-build properties.#2: Another impressive UK shareDevro (LSE: DVO) is another quality UK share with the wind in its sails. The sausage skins maker declared in January that underlying operating profits for 2020 would be at the “upper end” of broker forecasts. It seems to have strong momentum going into next week when it will be unpacking full-year results. These are also slated for Tuesday.Both sales and margins have continued moving higher at the food producer. This pays testament to market share gains with existing customers and new business wins in emerging markets. It also reflects the long-running success Devro is still enjoying in stripping down costs.Devro might suffer in the short term from the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in Europe and the US. This has already caused production issues due to staff and meat shortages, and dented revenues due to the shuttered hospitality sector. I still think this UK share is a very-attractive growth stock for long-term investors like me though, thanks to its rising position in fast-growing emerging markets and its strong track record of developing popular cutting-edge products.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 2 UK shares I’d buy in my ISA in March to help me retire comfortably Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more

Warren Gatland’s son Bryn set for Super Rugby debut

first_imgWednesday Apr 5, 2017 Warren Gatland’s son Bryn set for Super Rugby debut Young flyhalf Bryn Gatland is set to make his first Blues appearance in Super Rugby this coming weekend, a moment that could set in motion a strange series of events. He is the son of British & Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland, who will face the Blues in June. Young Gatland was called into the Blues squad as injury cover after flyhalf Ihaia West was ruled out for four weeks after sustaining an ankle injury against the Western Force.Bryn, who plays for North Harbour, is likely to be drafted onto the bench, with Piers Francis expected to start at ten against the Highlanders in Dunedin.The 21-year-old had been training with the Crusaders after not having been selected by any of New Zealand’s five Super Rugby sides. Blues coach Tana Umaga then called him into the side.“It is a bit strange being flown all over the country,” Gatland told the New Zealand Herald on Tuesday. “It is tough being an injury replacement as you don’t have any certainty or stability. One minute you are in, the next you are out.“If I get a chance to get on the field I’ll do what I can to put my best foot forward. You see it all the time, someone gets a little bit of an opportunity, they do well and it all works out for them.”If things go well, that sets up a possible meeting with his father, when the Lions tour New Zealand.“It has been mentioned about a million times,” a grinning Gatland told TVNZ. “I can’t look that too far ahead but it would be awesome.”Right now the father-son meeting is all speculative, but it would make for a great story.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.

Fannie Mae Upwardly Revises Economic Growth Estimate for Q2

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Previous: OCC Comments on Progress of Hardest Hit Fund Initiative Next: Government Files Opposition to Bank of America’s Appeal of ‘Hustle’ Case Verdict Stronger-than-expected economic activity for the second quarter will drive accelerated economic growth for the second half of 2015, according to the July 2015 Economic Outlook released Thursday by Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research (ESR) Group.The U.S. economy contracted at an annualized rate of 0.2 percent in the third and final Q1 estimate from the Bureau of Economic Analysis released in late June. Improved conditions in Q2 were driven by increases in consumer spending and residential and nonresidential investments, combined with a waning drag from net exports, according to Fannie Mae. In the July Economic Outlook, Fannie Mae expects the economy to pick up to an annualized rate of 2.8 percent in Q2, which is 0.4 percentage points higher than the June estimate.Despite volatile economic conditions overseas that could pose headwinds to the U.S. economy, the ESR Group’s estimate for full-year economic growth in July is an annualized rate of 2.1 percent, up from June’s forecast of 1.9 percent, according to Fannie Mae.”Our second-half outlook is little changed overall, but we have upgraded our full-year outlook due to the upward revision to first-quarter GDP and our more optimistic view for the second quarter,” Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan said. “We believe consumer spending will be the largest contributor to growth for the remainder of the year, particularly as consumers’ confidence, household net worth, and income growth prospects have continued to strengthen amid an improving jobs market. On the downside, the drop in oil prices will likely continue to weigh on nonresidential investment in structures, and on balance we expect net exports to be a drag on growth this year, due in large part to the debt crisis in Greece and deteriorating economic conditions in China.”Duncan said Fannie Mae’s housing outlook is largely unchanged in the July forecast, with leading housing indicators such as housing starts, mortgage rates, single-family home sales, existing home sales, and single-family mortgage originations pointing to “continued improvement” into the summer.”We expect to see strong sales, lean inventories, and rising confidence through the rest of the year, which should support increased home building activity and give an added boost to economic growth,” Duncan said. “Although a lack of skilled labor may hurt construction activity, our forecast calls for housing starts to average 1.12 million units. We expect existing and new home sales to climb by approximately 5 and 25 percent, respectively, and total mortgage originations to rise approximately 24 percent to $1.46 trillion, with a refinance share of 47 percent.”Click here to see Fannie Mae’s July 2015 Housing Forecast; click here to see the Economic Forecast; click here to see Economic Developments.

‘If Procedure To Do Good Is Illegal, It Doesn’t Make Purpose Good’ : Bombay High Court To BJP MP Sujay Vikhe Patil On Remdesivir Procurement

first_imgNews Updates’If Procedure To Do Good Is Illegal, It Doesn’t Make Purpose Good’ : Bombay High Court To BJP MP Sujay Vikhe Patil On Remdesivir Procurement Sharmeen Hakim3 May 2021 9:30 AMShare This – xOn Monday, the Bombay High Court (Aurangabad Bench) remarked that BJP MP from Ahmednagar Dr Sujay Vikhe Patil needs to introspect while referring to his social media videos glorifying his efforts to procure Remdesivir vials. A division bench of Justices Ravindra Ghuge and BU Debadwar remarked while hearing the petition seeking an FIR against Patil for allegedly unauthorisedly procuring Remdesivir injections and bringing them via a chartered flight. Senior Advocate Shirish Gupte, appearing for Patil’s, said his client was a man of repute. He submitted that Patil was a Neurosurgeon. However, his hospital – Dr Vikhe Patil Memorial Hospital – is wrongly portrayed as some “fly by night” institution. “Your client needs to introspect. Had he not indulged in gimmicks of recording a video in the flight and after getting down at the airport, recording his photographs and videos while unloading the boxes and telling his constituency that he used his influence in getting these medicines for you from Delhi …he should have not said,” Justice Ghuge said. Gupte agreed but added that he had transported Remdesivir vials via a chartered flight to help people, and his act was not criminal in any way. “I agree, this is the bravado of a young man. But it’s not a criminal act.” “If the procedure to do good is itself illegal, it doesn’t make the purpose good, ” the court remarked. Regarding adding Patil as a respondent to the petition and admitting his plea, the bench said it would pass an order after a detailed hearing on Wednesday, as it did not want to decide in “haste.” The bench added that it is yet to make up its mind about treating the petition as a PIL or a criminal petition. During the last hearing the bench directed the District Superintendent of Police, Ahmednagar, to trace the boxes containing Remdesivir vials unloaded by the MP at the Shirdi Airport. Gupte started his submissions by saying all hell has broken loose against his client, but he has not been made a party. He submitted that Patil had not transported 10,000 vials but brought only 1,200 vials from Chandigarh to Ahmednagar by flight. “There is prejudice caused by these ex-parte allegations, for these 1200 vials got from Chandigarh given to civil surgeon.” He said that the civil surgeon from Ahmednagar placed an order for 1,700 vials, from a Pune company and the company gave 500 vials. However, Dr Patil’s foundation paid the civil surgeon Rs 18,14,400 for the 1,700 vial’s consignment, and Patil merely went and got the remaining vials from the company’s manufacturing unit in Chandigarh. “Though we are posing this application for hearing on May 5, it is canvased by Senior Advocate Gupte that the applicant has not procured 10,000 vials as is being indicated (by petitioners). Fifteen boxes each containing 80 vials were got by him from Chandigarh of 1200 injections. Though we have not heard the application, the brief submission indicate that the said applicant, Dr Vikhe Patil had picked up the stock from Chandigarh since the money was already deposited by the civil surgeon, and said Dr Vikhe Patil picked up the stock from Chandigarh and got it to Shirdi,” the bench noted. Advocate Pradnya Talekar, appearing on behalf of the petitioners, submitted that the government is now preparing backdated records. An attempt is being made to show there was no irregularity in purchasing the injections, she said. During the hearing, the bench also noted that probably the government is treating the petition as adversarial litigation. The bench then posted the matter for hearing on May 5.

No relationship between microsatellite variation and neonatal fitness in Antarctic fur seals, Arctocephalus gazella

first_imgPublished studies of wild vertebrate populations have almost universally reported positive associations between genetic variation measured at microsatellite loci and fitness, creating the impression of ubiquity both in terms of the species and the traits involved. However, there is concern that this picture may be misleading because negative results frequently go unpublished. Here, we analyse the relationship between genotypic variation at nine highly variable microsatellite loci and neonatal fitness in 1070 Antarctic fur seal pups born at Bird Island, South Georgia. Despite our relatively large sample size, we find no significant association between three different measures of heterozygosity and two fitness traits, birth weight and survival. Furthermore, increasing genetic resolution by calculating parental relatedness also yields no association between genetic variation and fitness. Our findings are consistent with necropsy data showing that most pups die from starvation or trauma, conditions that are unlikely to be influenced strongly by genetic factors, particularly if the benefits of high heterozygosity are linked to immune-related genes.last_img read more
