Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img The Covid-19 crisis has torn a hole in the profits outlooks of a great many FTSE 250 shares. And investors don’t just need to be worried by the short-term economic impact of the worldwide lockdown. A looming economic recession, allied with changing consumer and business trends in the wake of the pandemic, cast a shadow over firms’ likely earnings power over the next decade (and possibly beyond).This is no reason for stock investors to pull the plug, though. The profits pictures for office space providers, oil producers, and banks have worsened, to give just a few examples. But there remains a huge number of other FTSE 250 stocks that remain on course to deliver gigantic profits to their shareholders in the years ahead.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 bargain with buckets of potentialOne such share I still like the look of is B&M European Value Retail (LSE: BME). Sellers of low-cost goods like this thrive in recessionary environments as shoppers try to stretch their household budgets further and further. This particular FTSE 250 carries an extra layer of protection, too. Many of the items it sells, like food and cleaning and hygiene products, are essential goods that can thus be deemed ‘recession-proof.’There are other reasons to be excited over B&M’s earnings outlook, though. Through its ongoing expansion scheme it’ll be increasingly well-placed to capitalise on this changing retail environment as well. The company is planning to open another 30 stores in the current financial year (to March 2021) alone as part of its drive to eventually reach 950 stores.At current prices of 400p per share, B&M trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) of 0.5. It’s a figure that sits well below the bargain threshold of 1 and below. And it underlines my belief that this is a brilliant FTSE 250 stock to load up on today. Annual profits here are tipped to surge 30% alone, according to analysts. There’s likely plenty more where that came from, too.Another dirt-cheap FTSE 250 star I’d buy todayPlus500 Ltd (LSE: PLUS) is another white-hot stock that’s far too cheap at current prices. At £12.60 per share the trading giant trades on a rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings (or P/E) multiple of 6 times. Investors can also gain access to a chunky 8% dividend yield at this moment.The FTSE 250 business provides a trading platform for financial instruments like contracts for difference. And it has enjoyed a huge profits upswing in recent months thanks to the eye-popping volatility witnessed across financial markets.Can Plus500 continue to thrive, though? Well serious social, macroeconomic, and geopolitical issues – the Covid-19 crisis and its fallout, rising trade tensions between the US and China, and November’s US presidential election – mean that markets are likely to remain volatile. And so turnover should remain on a broadly upwards path. City analysts expect earnings to balloon 85% in 2020 and the current landscape means the bottom line could keep on climbing, too. 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.

In Paris, railroad workers protest at Gare de l’Est

first_imgFrench railroad workers pose with WW managing editor, John Catalinotto, at protest outside Gare de l’Est in Paris, May 14.Paris, May 14 — At 4 a.m., railroad workers who have been on strike since early April began a day-long demonstration at the Gare de l’Est — one of the main long-distance train stations in Paris — to punctuate their demands.The government of President Emmanuel Macron, a banker at the top of the French state, has been waging a fierce attack against the rights of all workers, mainly protection for their jobs. Past workers’ struggles have made it difficult for French capitalists to fire workers.As in nearly all the imperialist countries — the U.S., Western Europe and Japan especially — conditions for the working class have deteriorated since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the globalization of the economy. A smaller part of the working class is in unions, and many of the old manufacturing plants have closed as they became less profitable than factories in lower-wage countries.Macron’s attacks are directed especially at the workers in the public sector, that is, those employed by the government. Among them are the railroad workers, or cheminots, and they are fighting back. At the current time the unions’ tactics are to strike two days and then go back to work for three days. This is open ended and disrupts train traffic, which is essential to travel in France much more so than in the U. S.Today’s demonstration saw some hundreds of workers, accompanied by smoke devices and lots of noise, gather and march around the large station in Paris. Guarding the station were some riot police officers, wearing armor and carrying shields as if ready for a big battle.This Workers World reporter met with a group of railroad workers who were friends of the group, the Pole for the Renaissance of Communism in France (PRCF). They were optimistic about the struggle. “I think we are going to win,” said one and all. The workers greeted Workers World Party’s presence especially because of the letter of support that WWP’s unionized workers had sent last month, which was read to workers’ meetings. International solidarity is an important part of all struggle in this globalized economy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

US Navy, Lockheed Martin Hold Keel Laying Ceremony for Future USS Little Rock

first_img View post tag: KEEL View post tag: US View post tag: Defence View post tag: Ceremony View post tag: hold View post tag: Rock The Navy and Lockheed Martin, with Marinette Marine Corp., held a keel-laying ceremony for the future USS Little Rock, the Navy’s ninth littoral combat ship (LCS), June 27, in Marinette, Wis.The keel-laying ceremony recognizes the first joining together of a ship’s components. While modern shipbuilding processes allow fabrication of individual modules to begin months earlier, keel laying represents the formal beginning of a ship.Ship sponsor Janee Bonner, wife of U.S. Rep. Jo Bonner, authenticated the keel by having her initials welded into a sheet of the ship’s hull.LCS is a high-speed, agile, shallow draft, mission-focused surface warship designed for operations in the littoral, or coastal, environment (within 300 nautical miles of land), yet fully capable of open ocean operations.Little Rock is one of four Freedom-variant LCS currently under construction at Marinette Marine. The ship is expected to deliver to the fleet in 2017.“This ship exemplifies our commitment to stable, serial production of this valuable ship class,” said Cmdr. Nate Schneider, LCS program management representative, Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Bath, Detachment Marinette.Schneider also noted the shipyard’s tremendous investment in facilities and acknowledged the talented, skilled and dedicated workforce that is enabling continued delivery of high quality ships to the fleet.LCS 9 is the second ship to be named after the city of Little Rock, Ark. The first USS Little Rock was a Cleveland-class light cruiser commissioned in 1945 that, until her decommissioning in 1976, served primarily in the Mediterranean following her conversion to a guided missile cruiser in the late 1950s. She is now a museum ship in Buffalo, New York.The Navy is committed to the LCS program and is leveraging competition, fixed-price contracting and ongoing production to reduce construction time and costs. Lessons learned from the lead ships have been incorporated in the follow on ships.“It is an exciting time in the program, as the shipyards hit their stride in serial production of LCS,” said Capt. Tom Anderson, LCS program manager.PEO LCS is responsible for delivering and sustaining credible littoral mission capabilities to the fleet and is working with industry to achieve steady production to increase production efficiencies and leverage cost savings. Delivering high-quality warfighting assets while balancing affordability and capability is key to supporting the nation’s maritime strategy.[mappress]Press Release, June 28, 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy June 28, 2013 Industry newscenter_img View post tag: USS View post tag: little View post tag: Martin View post tag: future Share this article View post tag: LAYING View post tag: Lockheed View post tag: News by topic US Navy, Lockheed Martin Hold Keel Laying Ceremony for Future USS Little Rock Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy, Lockheed Martin Hold Keel Laying Ceremony for Future USS Little Rock last_img read more

Swans accept Shelvey FA charge

first_img Shelvey elbowed Liverpool defender Emre Can during Swansea’s 4-1 defeat on Monday night but escaped any action from referee Andre Marriner. The 22-year-old’s suspension begins with immediate effect and he will serve a four-game ban, an extra game added to the customary three for violent conduct as he was sent off at Everton earlier in the season. “But that is absolutely not the case. It was not my intention to give the impression I do not want Jonjo here. “When I talked about him I was talking about the specific instances where he can do better, in relation to the yellow cards he has picked up. “He is going to get a lot better and I want that to happen here at Swansea, not anywhere else.” “The Football Association said the incident with Liverpool’s Emre Can, which happened in front of the referee, ‘was not seen by the match officials but caught on video’,” the club said on its official website. “While the club supports Shelvey’s statement that the incident was unintentional, it does not believe the outcome of an appeal would prove positive for the club or player.” Shelvey is banned for Swansea’s Barclays Premier League visit to QPR on New Year’s Day and Saturday’s FA Cup third-round tie at Tranmere, as well as league home games against West Ham and Chelsea on January 10 and 17. The once-capped England midfielder has been shown seven yellow cards and one red card this season and Swansea manager Garry Monk said before the Liverpool game he needed to “wise up” because “laziness” was costing him needless bookings. “I have spoken to him a number of times,” Monk said after Shelvey was booked in the Boxing Day victory over Aston Villa. “We can’t afford silly bookings and Jonjo has to wise up because that yellow card came from laziness and he has to be better than that.” But Monk said he had no intention to sell Shelvey – who joined Swansea from Liverpool for £5million in the summer of 2013 – in the January transfer window. “It is often the case (to sell) when a manager talks about a player,” said Monk. Press Association Swansea have ‘reluctantly accepted’ Jonjo Shelvey’s violent conduct charge from the Football Association, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.last_img read more
