Stock market crash: an oil stock I wouldn’t touch with a bargepole 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. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Oil prices have stormed from their multi-year lows of late April. From troughs below $20 per barrel, the Brent benchmark is now trading around the $32 mark. Easing lockdown restrictions across the globe have boosted prices, but the outlook for black gold values remains extremely murky.It’s not just the crude producers that need to worry, of course. Suppliers of key oilfield services like Hunting (LSE: HTG) also find themselves in huge peril. But don’t just take my word for it: a report just released by the International Energy Agency reveals the weak profits picture for these engineers.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…The body’s latest World Energy Investment report that’s just been released suggests that capex spend across the oil and gas sector will plunge 32% in 2020 to just above $250bn. Lockdown measures have hampered investment activity, sure. But this is not the main reason why spending is likely to tank, it says. Instead, “planned 2020 investments in upstream oil and gas have been slashed under pressure from the collapse in oil prices and demand”.Under pressureIt’s a phenomenon that’s already delivering a body blow to small-cap Hunting and its peers. In mid-April, it advised that “the impact of the oil price decline has affected demand within the Group’s segments focused on US onshore completions since the end of March 2020.”But this was not all. It added that “other segments are likely to see declines towards the end of quarter two, given that orders are continuing to be completed across all of [our] operating regions for a variety of offshore and international projects.” With work drying up, Hunting yanked its full-year guidance and pulled the dividend at the same time.An oil play to avoid?Glass-half-full investors might think that this is as bad as things will get for Hunting. Energy demand is likely to pick up again as lockdown measures are eased. And this should consequently drive oil prices and profits amongst crude producers higher again.But I’m not convinced that values of the liquid commodity will continue to recover. Whilst off-take is indeed improving, supplies remain quite abundant and keep topping expectations. Latest data from the American Petroleum Institute showed US stockpiles up by 8.7m barrels when a 1.9m-barrel reduction had been tipped.Investors need to consider how far oil prices can continue their recent recovery, given that the world is on the cusp of a painful (and possibly prolonged) economic downturn. The profits outlook for Hunting remains pretty murky not just for the near term.City forecasts seem to be in agreement. They suggest that the small-cap will follow a 77% fall in annual profits in 2020 with a 27% drop next year. Investors need to be concerned about the state of Hunting’s balance sheet as well. In March it had just $22.3m of net cash on its books. This was down almost $100m from a year earlier.The risks to Hunting are considerable. And yet it trades on a fatty forward P/E ratio above 20 times. I find it hard to envisage any reason why investors would want to buy today. I’d avoid it like the plague.center_img See all posts by Royston Wild Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild | Saturday, 30th May, 2020 | More on: HTG “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

first_imgMonday Dec 16, 2013 Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook Just when we thought his time in the spotlight was over, ‘Caveman’ Sebastien Chabal has hit the headlines for this knockout blow on number eight Marc Giraud during the ProD2 match between Lyon and Agen at the weekend. Giraud was carried off on a stretcher.Now aged 36, the former French icon is still playing rugby, plying his trade with Lyon in France’s second division. He built a reputation for not only looking like one of the scariest men in the sport, but playing like it too, famously breaking Ali Williams’ jaw and knocking out Chris Masoe.Not too long ago he announced that this would be his final season of rugby due to his body starting to feel the aches and pains that come with playing professionally for so long. He clearly hasn’t lost any of the competitive spirit though, as was seen, and felt by Agen eighthman Giraud.Giraud appeared to hold Chabal back – a common annoyance for loose forwards – but the reaction was probably a little disproportionate as the burly Frenchman swung what initially looked like a slap with a straight arm. The result made it seem more like a punch, as Giraud was knocked out cold.He was carried off the field in a stretcher before coming around in the changeroom, then was taken off to hospital after there were fears that he had broken his jaw. They later found that it was fine, although he did injure his ankle when he fell, unconcious.Chabal was promptly shown a yellow card after the touch judges alerted the referee, so he left the field for ten minutes, but protested his innocence on the way off. He will no doubt face a disciplinary hearing in a fortnight, and could be out of rugby for quite some time with a lengthy suspension.Agen showed the incident to the referee post match, and he admitted that it should have been a red card. “I am furious with the referee who did not show a red card,” said Agen’s Alain Tingaud.Giraud later tweeted: “It’s not too bad, thanks for the support. I’ll sleep well.”Lenghty ban for Seabass? Also, do you think that those that hold other players back like this should be penalised, or is it one of those things that is too difficult to monitor? Suggestions welcome! Sebastien Chabal may have said last month that he is retiring at the end of the season because his body was suffering but he shows no sign of wanting to go quietly.He faces a long ban after a right hook knocked out Agen’s Marc Giraud in an off-the-ball incident during the Saturday night match. Giraud appeared to hold on to Chabal’s shirt as the ball broke from a ruck and received a hard punch for his pains. He was carried off on a stretcher.The incident was missed by the referee but spotted by a touch judge. Chabal protested his innocence and seemed nonplussed to be sent off; replays suggested he was extremely fortunate to escape with a yellow card but he is unlikely to have heard the last of it.Alain Tingaud, Agen’s president, said he would be referring the incident to the league’s disciplinary committee. “I am furious with the referee who did not show a red card. He admitted he made a mistake It was a red.”Giraud later took to his Twitter account to reassure followers he was fine and “would sleep well”.Read more at http://www.espnscrum.com/france/rugby/story/209113.html#C2B4M1jkjCBJxcEB.99credit: rugbyrama and gorpitsenjuniorADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

£5m interim funding boost for Charity Commission as it considers charges for larger charities

first_img£5m interim funding boost for Charity Commission as it considers charges for larger charities Melanie May | 23 January 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Tagged with: Charity Commission Funding  64 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Sir John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, welcomed the funding announcement too.He said: “It is clear the Charity Commission needs funding to carry out its important work. We recognise this, but were concerned by recent suggestions that the Government might seek to siphon off donations given to specific causes and charities, whether large or small, to pay for regulation; we would consider that a retrograde step. That is why we recently laid out a range of practical alternatives – including modest increases in Government support – which would raise much needed funds and help the Commission achieve its objectives.“As always, we are committed to working with the Commission to help them secure the future of the whole charity sector and build the public trust which underpins so much work for the greater good.”  63 total views,  1 views today The Government has awarded the Charity Commission an extra £5m funding a year to help it respond to significant increases in demand on its core regulatory functions, including registration and compliance.The funding boost is an interim solution however, while the Charity Commission considers other funding models, such as the mooted charges for larger charities on which the Commission has said it expects to launch a formal consultation later in the year.The consultation is expected to ask for views on:The practicalities and implications of a system for charging the largest charities: The details are under consideration by the Commission, but it expects to consult on proposals that would see it receiving around £7.5million a year through contributions from the 2,000 largest charities on the register, namely those with annual incomes of over £5million. The enabling work charities and trustees would like to see the Commission expanding or developing: The Commission will be keen to hear from charities of all sizes and types about their current and future needs for support and enabling work from the Commission. This element of the consultation is likely to focus in particular on smaller charities. Recent research revealed that 80% of trustees are responsible for charities that do not have paid staff; they consequently look to the Commission for authoritative advice and guidance on managing their charities effectively and efficiently.William Shawcross, Chairman of the Charity Commission, said:“I am pleased that the additional transitional funding from Government acknowledges the unprecedented rise in demand on the Commission’s services in recent years. The new money will help us continue to increase the effectiveness of our core regulatory functions in the short term, as we explore longer term solutions.“It is right that we consider whether those in the sector with the broadest shoulders should make a contribution towards aspects of our work, and I am pleased that we will shortly be publishing a consultation on whether and how we do this. We would plan to use these funds to increase and improve the services and support we offer and want to encourage charities to step forward and feed in their thoughts.” Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Indiana Weather Forecast 2/24/2015

first_imgContinued cold through the end of the week. A little more snow may work in for Wednesday and early Thursday. As a clipper passes by to the north, we will see some action lift up out of the southwest as well, and it may bring a bit of light snow to more of Indiana. However, amounts will be minor; mostly a coating to an inch or two, and coverage will be no more than about 50% of the state. The biggest impact may be over central Indiana. Previous articleUSDA to Gauge Farmland Ownership and Farm EconomicsNext articleMorning Outlook Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter BEYOND INDIANA:CORN WeatherOne more dry day in Argentina today before a significant fronts works through starting tomorrow.  The front holds on over northern areas into early Friday. Models continue to keep the best precipitation developing over west and northern areas, keeping BA, Cordoba and LaPampa drier. Half inch rains or less are likely in the dry areas, while farther north we see 1-2 inch rains or better. A strong high moves in again behind the rains, putting temps back below normal. Highs of 75-85 are likely in the period…beautiful for developing corn. Brazil full season corn areas will be mostly drier this week with action limited to hit and miss showers through Friday. The exception will be RGDS, where we will see that northern Argentina moisture come in full force late this week into the weekend. WE can see 2-3 inches of rain in Rio Grande do Sul in that period. Next week, action fills in a bit more over brazil, brining 10 day totals in brazil corn country to around half to 2.5”. But, we must stress that moisture in this pattern, outside of RGDS, is not frontal based, and there will be significant windows of opportunity for Safrina corn planting (after beans) in the central-north. A 6 day precipitation map (through this Friday) sits just below, in the Brazil soybean section. The US Corn Belt sees a slightly better chance of snow from Wednesday into Thursday, although amounts still are small. The weekend storm complex headed in looks to be mostly rain from IL eastward, but we continue to see some models spit out a lot of snow from WI/MN back through IA and into northwest MO. With the moisture availability, if it is cold enough for snow, there will be some bigger amounts. But, the track and development of this system is still 5-6 days away from hitting…and plenty can change. We currently are just watching to see how it evolves. Cold air pushes in hard behind the system and will be in control most of next week as well. SOYBEAN WeatherWe contineu to see hit and miss moisture this through the rest of the week. We like rain totals under an inch over about 70% of the brazil soy belt this week, allowing for better harvest activity and second crop corn planting. Next week, we see an increase in mositure again…which may lead to a few more delays. Still, many are talking about the rain as being helpful, especailly in Sau Paulo.WHEAT Weather HRW areas look to get another batch of moisture this weekend. So far, the storm complex looks similar to what moved through this past weekend. Moisture totals are similar as well. The difference will be that this coming weekend system will be moving into already cold air, while the past weekend system came into a warmer air mass. This may set up for better snow potential right out of the gate. Heavy rain is on the way to most SRW areas this weekend. Rain totals can be from 1-2 inches or more. Rain will also facilitate some snow melt as well. Rain may end as snow in northern SRW areas, but all rain will be seen farthern south, especially along the OH river and points south. Bitter cold air will ease some this weekend as the rain arrives, and then behind the rain it gets cold again.No better than quarter inch rains over most of the FSU and Russian grain areas in the next 10 days. Kazakhstan could go through the period completely dry. Temperatures go much above normal this week and stay there next week. No change in the short term forecast for FSU and Russian wheat areas.  The extended period shows fronts holding together a little better as they exit eastern Europe, but so far, we are not seeing any major increases in precipitation. Actually, it’s more just a few more smallish chances for rain in the extended period. Temps go above normal next week. CATTLE WeatherTemps moderate some as the week wears on, but look for well below normal temps through Friday. Warming temps this weekend will be interrupted by a cold push to start next week, but then warming accelerates next week. Moisture equivalents of the snows this weekend were not huge (mostly under half an inch), so even if we see rapid snow melt. Mud should be mostly limited to a couple of day’s worth of nuisance. HOG Weather Other than bitter cold still this week, nothing stands out as being too troublesome for hog areas over the next 10 days. We could be seeing a lot of water around after this coming weekend, but it should not have too much impact on hog production. Home News Feed Indiana Weather Forecast 2/24/2015 SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 24, 2015 center_img Another arctic blast heads in for next week, and in general, we see below normal temps for the first full week of March. Temps will then try to moderate a bit toward mid month, as they moderate over most of the nation. We will likely see better precipitation chances around the 7th-8th, and then again for the 10th-12th. Generally speaking, there is not a whole lot of change in the forecast from 24 hours ago. Facebook Twitter Indiana Weather Forecast 2/24/2015 SHARE This coming weekend, we continue to see a large scale system moving in. Models are playing around with the freezing line a bit, dipping it into northern Indiana a bit more by Sunday morning, but then moving it back north into lower MI by afternoon. We still are on the mostly rain side of the thought process right now, although rain will end as snow over northern and western locations. Liquid equivalent is impressive, with 2 day totals over an inch easily. The heaviest rains will be over southern Indiana, with Evansville potentially getting between 1 and 2 inches of weekend rain. We can expect some localized flooding.last_img read more

Volleyball drops both conference games over weekend

first_imgTaylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics ReddIt ReddIt Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto printThursdayTCU volleyball did not look like the same team that beat Texas Tech last Saturday, as they struggled offensively and lost to No. 24 Baylor 3-1 (25-18, 19-25, 15-25, 17-25).The Frogs were able to catch Baylor sleeping in the first set. Outside hitter Anna Walsh hit .667 percent with six of TCU’s 11 kills to propel them to a 25-18 set win.Walsh would finish with 17 kills, her highest total since September 6 against SMU (19).TCU would struggle from there, as Baylor used powerful runs to win the next three sets with ease.Alongside Walsh, freshman middle blocker Katie Clark continues to be another offensive weapon for the Frogs.  She had 10 kills in the match for her third straight match with double-digit kills.On defense, TCU had four players with double-digit digs: defensive specialist Berklie Baker (16), outside hitter Lexi MacLean (15), outside Allye Beth Deaton (11), and defensive specialist Dani Denison (10).This match was Deaton’s first action since her season-ending knee injury in October 2017.Freshman outside hitter élan McCall did not play in the match, as she is dealing with injury.For their next match, the Frogs will head to Ames, Iowa, to play the Iowa State Cyclones.  First serve is set for Oct. 13 at noon.SaturdayFor the second time this week, TCU volleyball is headed back to Ft. Worth with a tough loss.  The Frogs fought hard but was overcome by Iowa State 3-0 (25-15, 25-21, 25-16), dropping their overall record to 11-7.After TCU traded points with Iowa State early in the first set, the Cyclones took the lead and never looked back. They ended the set on a 10-1 run, dominating the Frog’s defense.Freshman middle blocker Katie Clark had been a bright spot for TCU in the opening set with four of her six total kills coming in the first set alone.The Frogs played much better in the second set, even going on a 5-0 run to lead 9-7 at one point.  The Iowa State defense proved too staunch, though, and TCU did not keep their lead for long.Losing a hard-fought second set drained all momentum from the Frogs, and they were simply outplayed in the third set.This is only the second time TCU has been swept this season.Outside hitter Anna Walsh led the way for the Frogs with 11 kills, two service aces, and a .556 hitting clip in the match.Setter Tori Dilfer had 26 assists and 15 digs for the fourth double-double of her career.Defensive specialist Berklie Baker and outside hitter Lexi MacLean combined for 28 digs to lead the Frogs on defense.For their next match, TCU will return home to play West Virginia. First serve is set for Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. in the Rickel. + posts Facebook Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.

Investors Take Note: Top Locations for Gen Z Renters

While millennials continue to make up the largest share of renters, they are entering the typical homebuying years. Gen Z makes up the second-largest share of renters but the fastest-growing segment.Rental investors might be surprised by differences in the demographics’ dwelling habits, which may seem counterintuitive when compared to one another.As RentCafe researcher and author Sanziana Bona puts it, “The downtown life in big coastal cities is so last decade.”The latest data published on the RentCafe.com blog shows small midwestern and southern towns are beginning to trend among Gen Z renters.The number of Gen Z renters jumped by 36% in 2020 compared to the prior year. The number of apartment applicants from every other generation simultaneously decreased. Thus, in order to identify what types of locations Gen Z prefers, RentCafe ranked cities by the highest share of applications for rent from this age group, as well as the highest YOY increase in Gen Z applicants.The cause for new renters’ preferences is not only that tiny towns in the heartland are more affordable, but also they offer “a vibrant local scene that feels authentic and closer to home for these young adults who are starting out in life in times of great uncertainty and change,” Bona reported. While millennials still claim the top spot for renters at 48%, quickly increasing Gen Z already owned the second spot. Some cities in 2020 experienced sharp renter increases for Gen Z, making them the trendiest cities for young renters.Topping the list is Greenville, NC.Nine of the 20 cities on this list are located in the Midwest and eight are in the South—far from the coastal cities previously favored by millennials, according to the study.They mostly are towns with fewer than 300,000 residents, a relatively low cost of living, and apartment rents less than the national average, which is around $1,400. And Gen Z is flocking to these places in large number.”In 18 of the top 20 trending locations for Gen Z renters, the share of rental applications submitted increased by at least 50% throughout the course of just one year,” the researchers report.Of course, they note, the findings must be interpreted in light of a year heavily affected by a national health crisis.”The economic and public health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have likely influenced Gen Zer’s preferences for less populated, more affordable cities/towns in Mid-America and outside of the large southern metro areas e.g. Atlanta, D.C., Charlotte, Houston, than millennials,” according to Ronnie A. Dunn, Associate Professor of Urban Studies at Cleveland State University.University of Oregon Sociology Professor Jill Ann Harrison tells Bona that economic factors are leading people to look at smaller, more affordable markets and see their potential. Harrison concluded that one of the main benefits people get is “much more space for their money” in these small and mid-sized cities compared to what they do in big, coastal ones. “Younger people are willing to trade off living in a crowded, bustling city for having more space at home. Many of these Heartland places are also much closer to their hometowns, too, enabling a tighter intergenerational connection which is more valued among younger adults today than with Gen X.”The full study along with a complete list and graphics is available at RentCafe.com/blog.
