Stock market crash: I think these FTSE 100 stocks have 50% upside

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Stock market crash: I think these FTSE 100 stocks have 50% upside Edward Sheldon owns shares in Rightmove and ITV. The Motley Fool UK has recommended ITV and Rightmove. 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. Edward Sheldon, CFA | Tuesday, 28th April, 2020 | More on: ITV RMV Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The recent stock market crash has left many FTSE 100 stocks trading well below their 52-week highs. According to Stockopedia, there are currently more than 50 stocks in the blue-chip index trading 30% or more below their one-year high.For long-term investors willing to look beyond the near-term challenges associated with Covid-19, these lower share prices could be a huge opportunity. With that in mind, here’s a look at two FTSE 100 stocks I believe have the potential to rebound 50%+ in the medium term.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…One of the most profitable companies in the FTSE Property website Rightmove (LSE: RMV) has seen its share price fall by around 33% since mid-February. This means the stock would have to rise by about 50% to get back to where it was pre-coronavirus. Is that possible? I believe so.Of course, I don’t expect Rightmove shares to rise 50% in the short term. Property consultancy Knight Frank is predicting that around 520,000 house sales will be abandoned this year due to the coronavirus. That suggests it’s going to be a challenging year for the residential real estate industry. Rightmove recently offered its clients (estate agents) a significant discount, which will hit its top and bottom lines.However, looking further out, I expect conditions to improve. Britons are obsessed with property, and when lockdown measures are eased, house sales should pick up again. Rightmove, as the clear market leader in the UK property website space with a market share of nearly 90%, should benefit.It’s worth pointing out Rightmove recently advised that it’s confident it has the financial capacity to withstand this challenging period. It’s also worth noting RMV is one of the most profitable companies in the entire FTSE 100. Last year, it had an operating margin of 74% and a return on capital employed (ROCE) of 384%.All things considered, I see Rightmove as a high-quality company that’s experiencing a short-term setback. I think the stock will rebound significantly when an element of normality returns.This FTSE 100 stock has fallen nearly 60%Another FTSE 100 stock I believe has the potential to rise 50% in the medium term is ITV (LSE: ITV). It’s currently nearly 60% below its 52-week high of 166p. A 50% rise from here would push the stock back to around 108p. I think that’s achievable.Like Rightmove, ITV is going to experience challenges in the near term. Not only have advertising revenues taken a hit, but the group has been forced to pause a significant number of productions due to lockdown measures.However, these challenges won’t last forever. When lockdown measures are eased, the company will be able to continue producing content. And when economic activity picks up, advertising revenues should increase. This should lead to a rebound in ITV’s share price.In the short term, the FTSE 100 company has the financial power to withstand the challenging conditions. In a trading update in late March, the group advised it has £150m of unrestricted cash, as well as a £630m Revolving Credit Facility expiring in December 2023, of which only £100m is currently drawn. It also said it has no bond repayments until September 2022.Weighing everything up, I think ITV is cheap at current levels. If you’re patient, I think you could be looking at 50% upside, or more. 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.

River House was designed to be a serene shelter embracing the natural beauty of the rugged mountain area. The complex program for a retired couple included a guest wing and extended outdoor living areas. The site is located within an older cul-de-sac development above a meandering river and the challenge was to build a private oasis in this dense setting with a connection to the river and the surrounding scenic mountains.Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Aaron LeitzAn elongated concrete wall on the north side provides a structural backbone for the composition. All program elements were located on or below grade and under a   sheltering shed roof to enhance the sense of protection in this sometimes harsh environment. Concrete was chosen as the dominant material for its durability and because it aesthetically anchors the house to the site. While visually extending the interior spaces and creating outdoor rooms, the raw materiality of the concrete sets up a compositional base for the remaining wood, glass, metal and plaster finishes.Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzWhen approached from the street, the house is very understated and minimal. Upon entering the house through the conceptual front door (gate), one finds a rich sequence of spaces, bounded by concrete and plantings. Here, the division between inside and outside first becomes blurred. This sense of uncertainty extends through the airlock entry to the interior of the main space. The synergy of the landscape architecture, art and furnishings contribute to the serene sense of place. Save this picture!© Aaron LeitzProject gallerySee allShow lessNew York City Mayor Threatens to Remove Times SquareArchitecture NewsImages Revealed of Frank Gehry’s “Gateway to Sunset Strip”Architecture News Share Houses ArchDaily Dembergh Constructionlast_img read more

The aim was to use only the form of the construction to keep unobstructed views to the valley, protecting them from the excessive afternoon sun.Save this picture!© Haruo MikamiSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Haruo MikamiSave this picture!IsometricTo achieve this, we advanced one floor over the one right below it; following the average inclination of the sun over the year during the period between 15h30 and 16h00, when the temperatures are higher. Therefore, the afternoon sun only starts to hit the bedroom and living room windows directly at the end of the day, when temperatures start to go milder. The shadow that is cast over the backyard also keeps its temperatures mild during the afternoon. The transparency of the living room allows for unobstructed views from the backyard to the valley through its internal space.

Este sistema está enfermo

first_imgLa crisis de COVID-19 está arrojando una luz evidente sobre las contradicciones y los fracasos del capitalismo. Millones de vidas están en riesgo, y no tiene por qué ser así.Aquí en los Estados Unidos –un país que durante más de un siglo ha estado a la vanguardia de las naciones económicamente más desarrolladas del mundo– la pandemia está matando a cientos de personas cada día. Casi un cuarto de millón de personas en los Estados Unidos han muerto por el virus desde diciembre pasado — menos de un año. Eso es casi una quinta parte de todas las muertes en el mundo por esta enfermedad.¿Por qué decimos que el capitalismo es responsable? Sólo compara a los EE.UU. con la República Popular China, que NO es capitalista.China tiene una población mucho más grande – 1.4 mil millones de personas, o cuatro veces la población de los EE.UU. de 331 millones – que viven en casi la misma cantidad de tierra. Y antes de que la revolución socialista de China triunfara en 1949, su desarrollo se había visto frenado por las intervenciones imperialistas – de Japón, los EE.UU. y Europa.China también fue el primer país en ser golpeado por el coronavirus. El primer caso fue reportado en Wuhan, en diciembre de 2019.El gobierno chino tuvo que movilizarse rápidamente para averiguar qué estaba pasando con esta nueva enfermedad. ¿De dónde vino? ¿Cómo se trata? ¿Deberían ponerse en cuarentena barrios enteros? Si es así, ¿cómo obtendrá la gente comida y otras necesidades?Todo esto tenía que ser resuelto y actuado rápidamente.Y eso es exactamente lo que pasó. Los equipos médicos fueron llevados rápidamente a Wuhan. En pocos días se construyeron nuevos hospitales.Y a los enfermos no se les preguntó: “¿Tienen seguro médico? ¿Quién pagará por esto?”La enfermedad fue contenida rápidamente. A partir de este 19 de octubre, China, con cuatro veces la población de los EE.UU., ha tenido sólo 4.634 muertes por el virus, en comparación con 224.824 muertes en este país, y sigue aumentando. (worldometers.info/coronavirus)Esto se reduce a la estadística de que una persona que vive en los Estados Unidos tiene 200 veces más probabilidades de morir de un coronavirus que una persona en China.¡Qué acusación de este sistema capitalista! ¿Qué hace esta gran diferencia?China tiene una economía de planificación centralizada y de propiedad social, lo que significa que en una emergencia de este tipo, todos los recursos de la sociedad se pueden centrar en hacer frente al problema. La salud de la gente, no las ganancias de unos pocos, se convierte en la primera prioridad.Si eso significa que el comercio en un área afectada debe ser cerrado, asi sucede. Si la gente necesita estar en cuarentena, se hacen planes para asegurarse de que los alimentos y otras necesidades se les entreguen de forma segura. Si no pueden llegar a sus trabajos, no serán echados de sus casas o dejados para que mueran de hambre.Todo eso fue solucionado cuando el virus se desató por primera vez en Wuhan.Esto es inconcebible en un país capitalista, incluso uno tan rico como los Estados Unidos. En este momento, millones de personas han sido despedidas. Las pequeñas empresas están fallando mientras la gente se aprietan el cinturon a causa del virus. Los beneficios adicionales de desempleo se terminaron en julio. El llamado pago de “estímulo” individual de 1.200 dólares en abril se gastó hace meses, y ni Trump ni Biden están hablando de otro. (Cabe señalar que ahora hay más millonarios que apoyan a Biden que a Trump).Esto es el capitalismo. Si eres un trabajador, estás por tu cuenta. Cada día se hace más claro que la acumulación de tantos problemas, tanto sufrimiento, viene de este sistema de lucro.No tiene por qué ser así. La opresión engendra resistencia. La resistencia une a la gente para luchar por una causa común. Y la lucha debe ir más allá de tratar de aliviar los síntomas. Debe llegar a la fuente de la enfermedad misma: el capitalismo.  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

However, it is not allowed to review stories of the independent press in local languages and english.___________________________________14-01-2011- State security agents forcibly close community radio station without explanationState security agents yesterday ransacked Teranga FM, a community radio station located outside the capital, and ordered its closure, Reporters Without Borders has learned from various sources.“We condemn such brutal methods and urge the government to explain this incident at once,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also call for the station to be reopened. Independent media are rare in a country that is so hostile to press freedom. The effect of such measures is to reduce the public’s access to any other news but reports about the daily activities of the president and his government.”“I believe the closure is linked with the press reviews of the independent press that the radio station is doing everyday in local languages, with which the authorities are not happy,” a Gambian journalist told Reporters Without Borders. “The independent press is covering the opposition’s daily activities, while state media, both the radio and the TV, only cover government activities.”Launched in 2009, Teranga FM is based in Sinju Alajie, about 20 km west of Banjul, the capital.
