Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I am interested in FTSE 100 incumbents Compass Group (LSE:CPG) and Ashtead Group (LSE:AHT) and their current state of affairs in the market crash.Risk or reward?A major issue will be the fact that a lot of construction sites are closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic. This will be having a huge impact on Ashtead. 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 market crash saw nearly 50% wiped off its Ashtead’s share value. The FTSE 100 index itself lost nearly 25%. On 19 February, Ashtead’s share price traded at 2,765p per share whereas the market bottom on 23 March saw a per share price of 1,335p. At the time of writing, Ashtead’s share price is over 1,900p per share. Ashtead has performed admirably over the past few years. Revenue has increased year on year for the past five years which is a good indication of its strength. Profit levels increased between 2015 and 2018, falling slightly in 2019. It has also increased its dividend per share year on year for the past five years.Ashtead released a trading update yesterday. It confirmed that its full-year results, to 30 April, should not be too badly impacted by Covid-19. It also confirmed that it has close to $4bn in credit facilities available to it to assist through this turbulent time. Ashtead reported a freeze on recruitment, a pause on its share buyback scheme, and reduced planned capital expenditure. The company confirmed it would not be using the UK government’s Coronavirus Job Retention scheme. There was no mention of dividend payments, which may be a good sign. I would not rush to buy cheap shares right now. The primary reason is that no one know when when construction levels will return to normal. Furthermore, Ashtead’s revenues, in large part, come from the UK and the US, two countries badly ravaged by this pandemic. There are less risky options in the FTSE 100 for me.FTSE 100 winnerThe market crash saw close to 50% of the Compass share price value wiped off. Just after mid-February, shares were trading at close to 1,950p per share. Fast forward to the date of the FTSE 100 market crash bottom, 23 March, and shares closed at 1,002p per share. At the time of writing, its share price had climbed up close to 1,300p per share. Compass has taken the step of releasing monthly Covid-19 updates. In its most recent update it confirmed 55% of its business is closed due to the lockdown. It reported that it was attempting to lower its cost base by around £450m per month. This was being done through a mixture of staff furloughs, reductions in salaries and working hours, and by limiting overtime and the use of contractors and temporary workers. Importantly, it did confirm it possessed enough liquidity to avoid financial ruin. Compass confirmed it has close to £3bn in credit facilities. Another step it took was to postpone interim and final dividend payments, but will review this later. For me, I expect Compass Group to recover nicely, along with the FTSE 100, once the lockdown ends. The reason I say this is because catering services will always be required. There is some short-term pain to be expected. However, if you are patient, I do feel 2021 could be a normal year of profitability and increasing dividend per share payments for Compass.last_img read more

The Synairgen (LSE: SNG) share price has surged in value in the past two months. During the last two weeks of July, shares in the micro-cap jumped more than 440%.That meteoric rise came after management announced positive results from the company’s Phase II drug trial for SNG001, which is, according to the business, effective in preventing coronavirus patients from requiring ventilation. 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…Investor sentiment towards the company continued to improve throughout August. The Synairgen share price hit a high of 250p on 20 August as investors became increasingly excited about the firm’s prospects. However, over the past two weeks, shares in the drug discovery company have fallen back below 200p. Unfortunately, I think there’s a high chance the stock could fall further before it returns to its previous all-time high. Today I’m going to explain why. Synairgen share price outlookSynairgen’s SNG001 drug could have huge potential, but I think the market has gotten ahead of itself here. It’s still in its early stages of development. The company needs to complete a Phase III trial before it can take the treatment to market. This could take some time to complete, and there’s no guarantee SNG001 will meet its trial’s goals. The number of drugs that successfully make it from the drawing board to the market is tiny. It’s less than 10% of all treatments. SNG001 has made it this far, but there’s no guarantee it will make it over the final hurdle.What’s more, the market for coronavirus drugs is highly competitive. Estimates suggest there are over 1,000 different treatments and medications in the pipeline. In Europe alone, over 130 other products are being trialled and tested. So, even if SNG001 does pass its last test, Synairgen may have its work cut out to promote the treatment in a crowded field. Delays could weigh on the Synairgen share price.Unfavourable oddsAll of the above suggests Synairgen is going to face an uphill struggle to get its product to market. It seems as if the odds are stacked against the business. As such, it seems likely the share price could fall further in the near term. It could be many months before there’s any more positive news to report on SNG001. During that time, other companies with blockbuster treatments may draw investor attention away from the Synairgen share price. That said, while there’s no guarantee SNG001 will succeed, there’s no guarantee it won’t fail either. If the drug makes it to market, the company’s could see considerable revenue growth, which would be extremely positive news for the micro-cap. Therefore, I believe investors need to take a long-term outlook with the business and own it as part of a diversified portfolio. The stock could fall back to 100p in the near term as SNG001 is put through its paces. If it fails the last test, the company may run out of money. However, if the treatment is successful, the stock could be an attractive long-term investment. Owning the Synairgen share price as part of a diversified portfolio would allow investors to profit from any upside while limiting downside risk. center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The terrible Covid-19 news flow of recent days has smacked UK shares of all shapes and sizes. Investor confidence has plummeted as forthcoming lockdown measures in Britain have cast fresh doubts over corporate profits. It shouldn’t have come as a shock to see the Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) share price in particular sinking again.The highly-cyclical FTSE 100 bank, unlike other blue-chips such as HSBC and Standard Chartered, generates almost all of its profits from these shores. So while Lloyds advised last week that it expected loan loss provisions to come in at the lower end of its estimates (£4.5bn-£5.5bn), news of the new national lockdown has put these estimates in severe jeopardy already.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…Lloyds in dangerAccording to ING Bank, those fresh Covid-19 clampdowns will reduce British GDP by 6-7% in November. They threaten to play havoc in December too, and possibly beyond, should the infection rate fail to come down. And so UK shares like Lloyds should be extremely worried.The bank recorded pre-tax profit of just £620m between January and September, versus £2.6bn in the same 2019 period. Profits have collapsed due to those vast provisions, falling customer demand and rock-bottom interest rates. It looks as if Lloyds can expect more of the same for the rest of 2020 at least.This is why I’m not tempted to go dip-buying Lloyds following its fresh share price fall. Sure, at current prices of 27.5p the bank trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 8 times for 2021. But this is built on broker expectations that annual earnings will rocket 180% next year. Estimates that are looking increasingly unlikely given the current trajectory of the Covid-19 crisis.What’s more, Lloyds’ monster 5.5% dividend yield for 2021 looks like it’s in even more peril. The UK share’s uncertain profits outlook is one reason why it might not restart dividends next year. Another is the possibility that the Prudential Regulatory Authority might keep its ban on British banks paying dividends to their shareholders too.A better UK shareWhy would I take a gamble on Lloyds today. Especially when there are so many other cheap, dividend-paying stocks for ISA investors like me to choose from.One UK share I’d much rather buy this November is Flutter Entertainment (LSE: FLTR). This FTSE 100 share trades on a much-heftier P/E ratio of 29 times for 2021. But I think the gambling colossus is worthy of such a meaty premium.City experts expect earnings here to rise 8% in 2021. And bright growth projections for the broader online betting market suggests investors in Flutter can — unlike owners of Lloyds shares — look forward to a long run of strong profits growth.Indeed, I’d buy this UK share before third-quarter results come out on Wednesday, 11 November. Flutter certainly impressed the market in August with news that revenues rocketed almost 50% in the first half. And I’m expecting another brilliant update this week that could send its rocketing share price even higher.last_img read more

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 29th November, 2020 Over the past few weeks, the stock market recovery has started to pick up steam. Investor sentiment has improved dramatically since the end of October as the positive clinical trial results from not one, but three potential coronavirus vaccines have shown the virus can be beaten.What’s more, initial indications suggest the economic hit from the crisis may not be as bad as expected. Recent economic data has shown that retail sales grew 3.9% in October when compared with February 2020’s pre-pandemic level. 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…These figures show that while some sections of the economy are suffering, others are prospering. This should help the economic and stock market recovery in the years ahead. And against this backdrop, I think there are plenty of opportunities for investors. Stock market recovery investments If I had £500 or any other lump sum to invest in the market right now, there are a couple of options I would consider. The first, and most straightforward is to buy a low-cost tracker fund. These funds are very simple to understand. The fund manager buys the underlying stock index and leaves the rest to the market. As a result, these funds tend to be cheaper to own. The best offering on the market charges less than 0.1% in fees every year. However, the one drawback of these funds is that they only match the market’s performance. There’s no chance of them outperforming in the stock market recovery. Still, I think they’re the best way to invest a small lump sum without too much effort. Tracking an index like the FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 is a simple way to invest in the stock market. I’d also consider owning an investment trust. These investment vehicles are a great product, which provides access to the market with an instantly diversified portfolio. They tend to take a more active approach than passive funds, so they can yield high returns in the long run. If one isn’t interested in buying funds, I’d take a look at single stocks to profit from the stock market recovery. I’d focus on companies that should prosper no matter what the future holdings for the global economy.Companies like retailer Ocado, which has been at the forefront of the UK tech revolution. Reckitt Benckiser is another example. This consumer goods champion may see continued sales and earnings growth for many decades to come. Long-term focus To profit from the stock market recovery, I’d focus on buying high-quality funds or shares that should prosper no matter what the future holds for the global economy. While some stocks like Rolls-Royce or IAG might generate higher returns in the short term, owning these firms could also lead to losses for investors if they continue to struggle. I don’t think that’s a worthwhile trade-off, so I’m avoiding these businesses in my portfolio.  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.
