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.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Shares in Smith & Nephew (LSE: SN) jumped 9.6% in early trading Thursday, on the back of strong revenue growth for 2019.The company is big in orthopaedics, making hip and knee joints, and other related technology. In a world where wealth is rising, demand for high-tech healthcare is growing too.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…Revenue increased by 4.4% for the full year, and by 5.6% in the fourth quarter. That pushed group sales above $5bn for the first time in Smith & Nephew’s history.The firm told us: “All global franchises and regions positively contributed to growth.” I think it’s telling that emerging markets saw a rise of 16.1%, and I’ll be looking there for further future gains.Earnings per share dipped a little on a reported basis, from 76 cents a year ago to 68 cents. But on a trading basis, we saw a rise from 100.9 cents to 102.2 cents.DividendsCash generated from operations increased nicely, to $1,370m (from $1,108m), and the dividend is up 4% to 37.5 cents per share.That’s a yield of only around 1.5%, but it’s very well covered by earnings. And right now I think it’s right for Smith & Nephew to prioritise investing for growth ahead of providing big dividend income. Smith & Nephew expects to see underlying revenue growth of between 3.5% and 4.5% in 2020, and that looks in line with analyst expectations.Smith & Nephew shares are up 38% over the past 12 months, so are they getting a bit peaky now? Forecasts suggest a 2020 price-to-earnings ratio of 24, which might look a bit high. But if growth continues apace, I think that could still turn out to be good value.It’s a growth company on a high growth valuation, but I think it’s fully deserved.NMC chaosThe intrigue is growing at NMC Health (LSE: NMC), whose shares blipped up nearly 10% Thursday morning.Under pressure since Muddy Waters released a scathing attack on the company’s governance and announced a short position, founder and co-chair Bavaguthu Raghuram Shetty resigned earlier this week. It all comes amid confusion over the size of Shetty’s shareholding, with nobody really seeming to know.There’s an ongoing legal investigation into the mystery, and the firm gave us an update on 18 February. It wasn’t nice, saying: “The board remains disappointed in the disclosures made by Dr Shetty.” It adds that the board “continues to encourage Dr Shetty and his advisers to ascertain the correct legal position in relation to his ownership of Ordinary Shares without further delay.” ConfusionThe growing evidence seems bizarre. Shetty has apparently pledged a chunk of his shares against some bank loans. Other shareholders might own some of his reported holdings. And banks might have already sold some shares to enforce loan security. It boggles my mind.Then on 19 February the story took a new twist. Czech investor Krupa Global Investments said it would not take a strategic stake in NMC unless Shetty is reinstated.What should private investors do? I’m amazed that a FTSE 100 company can get into such an impenetrable mess. And if the board and chair can’t work out who owns what, how can we trust their competence in running the company’s finances?I’ve admired NMC’s apparently successful growth in the past, but today I’d steer well clear.

Sean O’Brien gets rid of flyhalf Dan Biggar with huge handoff

first_imgTuesday Oct 15, 2013 Sean O’Brien gets rid of flyhalf Dan Biggar with huge handoff Sean O’Brien has forged a reputation for being one of the strongest ball carriers in world rugby, and showed why against the Ospreys as he got rid of Dan Biggar in no uncertain terms. Unfortunately he did lose the ball, but it was great to watch. From far. O’Brien also crossed for Leinster’s only try of the match in their 19-9 victory at Liberty Stadium, and perhaps most importantly made a big difference at the breakdown, where he stole ball and counter-rucked to outplay fellow Lions tourist Justin Tipuric.The Leinster flanker earned Man of the Match for his overall performance, and fans will be heartened by this improved aspect of his game. While the big ball carries and fends are impressive, the way he got to the breakdown ahead of Tipuric proved to be significant.“We had a lot of possession but when you have that much possession and you turn it over as much as we did you don’t deserve to win a game,” said Ospreys captain Alun Wyn Jones.Incidentally the top ball carriers in the match were Ospreys’ Joe Bearman, followed closely by Jamie Heaslip, and to give poor Biggar some credit, he did make the most amount of tackles in the match with 17. Tipuric made 16, while the top Leinster tackler was Jamie Heaslip with 12.Leinster and Castres sit at the top of Pool One. The two sides meet at the RDS next, in Round 2.View highlights of Ospreys vs Leinster on page two of this postHighlights from the Heineken Cup meeting between Ospreys and Leinster at the Liberty StadiumADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Heineken Cup , See it to Believe it Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO O’Driscoll outlines Leinster domination 81 WEEKS AGO Finn Russell carves up Saracens with another… 125 WEEKS AGO Tries galore as Bristol AND Northampton break… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

MANO hosts Disney film inspiration at 5k run

first_imgLinkedin ReddIt Caitlin Andreenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caitlin-andreen/ printJohnny Samaniego, from Disney’s recent movie McFarland USA, spoke to runners at J.P. Elder Middle School in Fort Worth Saturday as part of a 5k run hosted by Men Advancing New Opportunities (MANO).The movie follows the story of Samaniego and his teammates as they take on the cross country state championship in 1987.  McFarland High School was a predominantly Mexican-American school.“Our parents installed in us three things,” Samaniego said. “First was God, the second was family and the third thing was education. In that order right there.”Samaniego said he has coached girls basketball for the last twelve years in California.  He now teaches the same values taught to him by his cross country coach, played by Kevin Costner in the film, to his basketball team.“It’s all in the attitude,” Samaniego said. “You can’t change the situations, you can’t change the problems and you can’t change the issues, but something you can control is attitude.”Samaniego said he was honored to attend the first annual MANO 5k.“I just hope and wish that for years to come it becomes something wonderful so that the community can come together,” he said.Alejandro Story, a MANO board member, said MANO has several core values that they preach to their members.“MANO’s mission is to promote the advancement of Latino men in public, corporate and civic life through exposure to opportunities, engagement in personal growth and service to our community through high personal and communal expectations,” Story said.Story leads a camp each summer called Project Caballeros that serves Latino males in seventh and eight grade. Story said he intends to help Latino males realize their place in the community.“We will be focusing on four core characteristics of being a Latino male in our community: self awareness, Latino culture, the male gender and leadership,” Story said.Heroes for Hope Among those in attendance at the MANO 5k were organizations Heroes for Hope, which benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Kidd’s Kids and My Team Triumph DFW.Alisha Grady, a Heroes for Hope representative, said each year they pick an ambassador of hope for the race to tell a child’s story.“This year our ambassador is Micah Ahern, he’s six years old and fighting Neuroblastoma,” Grady said.Grady said Ahern means a tremendous amount to the TCU and Fort Worth communities as Ahern has become closely involved with TCU athletic programs. The baseball team even officially made him a honorary Horned Frog.The Heroes for Hope 5k is scheduled for August 15.​ Twitter ReddIt Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Caitlin Andreen “Modern ’til Midnight” brings fine arts to Fort Worth Previous articleVenues in Fort Worth to host several concerts this JuneNext articleContest brings awareness to water efficiency in Fort Worth Caitlin Andreen RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Caitlin Andreenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caitlin-andreen/ Paschal High School head football coach named coach of the week Caitlin Andreenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caitlin-andreen/ HSNT “Trick or Trot” to raise money for North Texas animals Facebook Linkedin Facebook “Modern ’til Midnight” brings fine arts to Fort Worth + posts Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Caitlin Andreenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caitlin-andreen/ Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more

News Reporters Without Borders today called for a UN investigation to shed light on the circumstances in which the US military fired on a vehicle carrying the newly freed Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena yesterday in Baghdad, injuring Sgrena and killing an Italian military officer accompanying her.”A thorough investigation must be quickly carried out by the United Nations into this blunder with tragic consequences,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said.”It is clear that his enquiry cannot be conducted just by the US army which in the past, especially in the case of the Palestine Hotel shooting that killed two journalists, produced reports aimed solely at exonerating the military,” Ménard said, adding, “we demand to know the full truth about this distressing affair.”Reporters Without Borders had voiced “extreme disappointment” about the report of the US army’s enquiry into the April 2003 Palestine Hotel shooting, which cleared the coalition forces of any fault or negligence.In yesterday’s incident, the convoy of cars taking Sgrena back to Baghdad following her release from captivity was fired on by US military at a checkpoint near the airport. One of the Italian military officers protecting her was killed and at least one other was wounded. Sgrena was wounded in the shoulder.The US military have claimed that the soldiers involved respected procedures and warned the convoy to stop before opening fire. A Pentagon official has said an investigation will be conducted into the incident.

Senegal: Multinational Maritime Exercise Saharan Express 2013 Concludes

first_img View post tag: Multinational Senegal: Multinational Maritime Exercise Saharan Express 2013 Concludes The multinational maritime exercise Saharan Express 2013 (SE-13) successfully concluded with post-sail discussions and a press conference, March 14.SE-13, which began March 7, is a maritime exercise designed to improve cooperation among participating nations in order to increase counter-piracy capabilities and deter maritime crimes in West Africa.“During the past week, eight West African nations, five European nations and the United States worked very well together,” said Capt. Andrew Lennon, U.S. exercise director for SE-13. “With the skills they developed during Exercise Saharan Express, the participating nations are better prepared for real world operations. They now have a better capability to stop weapons and narcotics trafficking and prevent illegal fishing.”Focusing on counter-piracy and maritime security operations, the exercise included a wide variety of training for participating forces, including at-sea ship boarding and queries, medical familiarization, air operations, communication drills and regional information sharing.“This marks the third time that this exercise has been conducted,” said U.S. Ambassador to Senegal Lewis Lukens. “I’m happy to say that it has become a cornerstone in our efforts to achieve the improvement of maritime security in the waters off West Africa.”SE-13, which has occurred annually since 2011, is one of the four African regional Express-series exercises known as Africa Partnership Station (APS). The regional maritime exercises test skills learned from previous APS training events.“Saharan Express is not just another task passing across the desk of the Senegalese armed forces,” said Rear Adm. Mohamed Sane, Senegalese sous-chef d’etat major general des armes. “It is an exercise of great importance for the Senegalese navy and the naval forces of the sub-region. It allows us to practice the techniques taught to our crews and is, as such, an indicator of the progress we are making in strengthening our capacity to carry out the tasks entrusted to us.”During SE-13, 10 ships, four aircraft and four maritime operations centers were operated by participating nations to achieve their common maritime security goals through partnerships and collaboration while focusing on deterring piracy, countering illicit trafficking and protecting resources.As part of the U.S. nation’s global maritime partnerships, APS was developed to support sustained, focused training and multinational and organizational collaboration on a regional scale in order to increase maritime safety and security in Africa.Eight West African and six European nations participated in SE-13 including Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, France, The Gambia, Liberia, Mauritania, Morocco, The Netherlands, Portugal, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 18, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: Concludes View post tag: Naval View post tag: Defence View post tag: Saharan View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Senegal: Multinational Maritime Exercise Saharan Express 2013 Concludes View post tag: Exercisecenter_img View post tag: Express View post tag: Maritime Training & Education View post tag: 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: News by topic March 18, 2013 Share this articlelast_img read more
