At times like this in the markets, the last thing you probably feel like doing is buying more shares.But maybe you should. Warren Buffett is always encouraging us to be greedy when others are fearful, and right now, I reckon many investors are petrified as the markets lunge lower. But the idea behind Buffett’s advice is that we can often find opportunities to buy better value, which could lead to gains later as markets ‘normalise’ and the underlying businesses make ongoing operational progress.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…In-demand products and materialsI reckon we need to try to imagine what things will be like after the coronavirus outbreak has settled down. Which company’s services and products will still be in demand then? There are many stocks to choose between, and I like the look of FTSE 100 building materials and products company CRH (LSE: CRH).The firm supplies materials such as aggregates, asphalt, cement, lime, ready-mixed concrete, and infrastructural steel. It also makes and supplies value-added products, such as paving, blocks, patio items, and glazing systems. I reckon such basics will be in high demand over the next decade or so, particularly in Brexit Britain, which seems determined to shift into a higher gear when it comes to infrastructure spending.CRH divides its business into three divisions: Americas materials, which accounted for around 41% of revenue during 2019, Europe materials at 34%, and Building Products 25%. Today’s full-year report reveals to us that 2019 was “another year of growth” due to positive demand in the Americas and in “key” regions in Europe. The directors explained in the report the firm saw “good” contributions from acquisitions and “tailwinds” from currency exchange movement.Overall revenue came in 6% higher than the previous year and like-for-like revenue moved 3% higher, suggesting strong trading. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations shot up by 25%. The directors pushed up the total shareholder dividend for the year by 15%, which I reckon shows their satisfaction with the results and optimism about the outlook.Strong cash performance and a positive outlookThe cash performance has been good as well. Net cash from operating activities shot up to €3.5bn, which compares with €1.9bn the prior year. Meanwhile, net debt eased back to €6.7bn from €7bn. The directors reckon the good outcome arose because of the firm’s “relentless focus on cash management.” CRH strikes me as being a bit like a giant snowball rolling along and getting bigger as it helps consolidate the small players in its markets. For example, around €0.7bn went into 62 acquisition/investment transactions in 2019. And sometimes bits drop off the snowball, as demonstrated by the 11 divestments/disposals, which generated proceeds of €2.1bn in the period.The directors reckon their ongoing focus on portfolio refinement, margin expansion, cash generation, and enhanced returns for shareholders will lead to a year of further progress in 2020. And I’ve skimmed through the statement today and can’t find any mention of the coronavirus and how it may affect operations.Meanwhile, with the share price close to 2,647p (and falling), the dividend yield for the current year runs near 2.7% and City analysts project single-digit percentage increases ahead. I’m watching this one and stand ready to pounce.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. FTSE 100 member Whitbread (LSE:WTB) was keen to remind investors that it was in good financial health when it delivered its results for the year ended 27 February yesterday. Whitbread started its new financial year with £503m in cash and a revolving credit facility of £950m. Dividends have been cut to keep cash in the business.It is also an eligible issuer under the UK Government’s Corporate Financing facility. This is a new badge of honour that businesses are keen to tout. What it means is that Whitbread is in good enough financial shape to issue debt backed by HM Treasury.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…So, Whitbread should survive the coronavirus crisis and plans to gobble up market share by taking advantage of the battered hotel industry when the dust settles. To this end, Whitbread is seeking to raise a £980m (after fees) by creating and selling new shares. That may not have been necessary had some £2bn not been spent on share buybacks over the last couple of years.Whitbread was flush with cash after selling Costa Coffee to Coca-Cola for £3.9bn in 2018. Activist investors had been hankering for this to happen. Costa was deemed to be worth more in cash than as part of Whitbread. Shareholders approved the move and had the price of their shares supported by the buybacks.In need of a pick-me-upBut the sale of Costa exposed an issue. Whitbread’s revenues grew at an average of 9% per annum from 2015 to 2017. In 2018, without those coffee sales, revenue fell to £2.01bn from £3.1bn the year before. Sales revenue grew at just 1.24% on average per year from 2018 to 2020. Without those coffee sales, Whitbread’s revenue growth could not even match UK GDP growth. Although Whitbread’s London hotels were doing okay, regional demand was sagging, with the blame placed on a lack of business confidence around Brexit. Something had to change to drive revenue growth.A good chunk of the Costa sale money was earmarked for expansion into Germany. The German hotel market is highly fragmented, with many independent and small hotels. This seemed the perfect stomping ground for a hotel chain to scoop up market share. Unfortunately, the coronavirus crisis has hampered any spending plans, and it’s hard to say for sure how long the crisis will last. Hotels are open in Germany again, but remain closed in the UK, probably until September. A new wave of infections may shut them again.At present, Whitbread is burning through £80m in cash each month. Planned expenditures amount to £600m over the next six months. How much of that £980m will be available to take advantage of cheap investment opportunities? Much of it looks destined to support existing plans and keep the business alive. This could mean another rights issue should those cheap investment opportunities present themselves in force.Is Whitbread a bargain?Whitebread operates in the budget hotel sector, which should benefit from the looming recession. Tourism and leisure travel will pick up again; of this, I am sure. But bosses will have noticed that meetings done digitally cost a lot less than putting staff on the road. The anticipated growth from expansion into Germany might not be as robust as forecast, and taking investment opportunities might rely on issuing even more shares. I don’t think Whitbread’s share price will outperform the FTSE 100. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

What’s happening to the Deliveroo share price?

first_img The Deliveroo (LSE:ROO) share price has been somewhat volatile since its IPO in March. To date, the stock is down around 40% from its issue price of 390p. But towards the end of last month, it started to climb, only to fall once more. What’s causing this volatility? And is this a company I should be adding to my portfolio as a long-term investment?The risks surrounding the Deliveroo share priceThe initial decline in the Deliveroo share price appears to stem from the uncertainty surrounding some of the risks the company is currently facing. For starters, it is unprofitable and not by a small margin. In 2020 it reported a loss of £226m. And while it does have around £380m of cash on the balance sheet, it’s pretty likely the firm will need to raise additional capital in the future either via debt (which increases leverage) or through equity issues (which cause dilution). At least, that’s what I think.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…Beyond the financial statements, there are also growing concerns regarding the employment classification of its riders. The Supreme Court recently decreed that Uber drivers are not self-employed freelancers but are employees. As such, the company’s path to profitability could be a longer one than hoped. Given that Deliveroo’s business model operates similarly, there’s a risk of the same court ruling being issued in the future. This would undoubtedly increase operating costs. And needless to say, it could push Deliveroo profit’s and its share price further into the red.However, beyond these risks, the business itself does appear to be progressing relatively well.Delivering growthLooking at its latest trading update, the company achieved accelerated growth for the fourth consecutive quarter. Total orders increased by 114% year-on-year to 71m. And its gross transaction value more than doubled from £715m in Q1 2020 to £1.65bn.More recently, the company announced a new two-year partnership with Waitrose. Under the agreement, riders can now deliver groceries to people’s doorsteps within as little as 20 minutes. This new relationship had been in a trial phase since September 2020, starting with five stores. The programme proved to be immensely popular with customers, so it was extended to 40 shops. And now that the trial is complete, Deliveroo will be offering delivery services to 150 Waitrose supermarkets by the end of this summer.Combined, these latest developments helped temporarily boost the Deliveroo share price, pushing it from 228p to as high as 270p within a week or so. But since then, it has once again come back down. Despite the progress being made and impressive growth, investors are still concerned about how the business will perform now that lockdown restrictions across the UK have begun to ease, and the ability to dine in restaurants has returned.The bottom lineAll things considered, I’ll be keeping Deliveroo on my watch list for now, even at its current share price. I do believe it has a path to profitability. But at the moment, there seem to be a lot of unknowns and risks surrounding its business model in a post-pandemic world.

Positive Job Report to Lead to Supply, Rate Increases

She has also worked with both the Five Star Institute and REO Red Book, as well as various other mortgage industry clients on content strategy, blogging, marketing, and more. The new year is off to a strong start—at least as far as the labor market is concerned. According to the latest Employment Situation Summary released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics today, jobs are on the incline, particularly in the construction, retail trade, and financial services industries. U.S. nonfarm jobs increased by a total of 227,000 in January alone.The unemployment rate remained fairly unchanged, increasing from 4.7 to 4.8 percent since December. A total of 7.6 million Americans were unemployed in January. The numbers were largely better than expected, according to economists.“January’s employment report showed stronger than expected job creation—stronger than last year, and much stronger than the fourth quarter gains,” said Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist for Realtor.com. “We have now seen a record 76 months of job growth.” The gains should give the Federal Reserve something to consider when its next rate hike is on the agenda later this year.”The fastest pace of job creation in four months should be enough to buoy market optimism and put the Fed on notice,” said Lindsey Piegza, Chief Economist at Stifel Fixed Income. “But from a monetary policy standpoint, Fed officials are increasingly focused on wage growth as opposed to the headline payroll number as an indication of the health of the U.S. labor market.”Though only in office a few weeks, the numbers are positive for President Trump, who in his campaign promised job growth, improved infrastructure, fewer business regulations, and better trade deals for the country.In a September 2016 speech at the New York Economic Club, Trump said, “If we lower our taxes, remove destructive regulations, unleash the vast treasure of American energy, and negotiate trade deals that put America First, then there is no limit to the number of jobs we can create and the amount of prosperity we can unleash.”Though Trump has had little time to enact policy change as of yet, his win in November likely plays a large role in the recent growth.“We view the strength in hiring as consistent with increased optimism from the private sector following the presidential election, with businesses saying they expect to expand and plan to hire more workers” said Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist. “More people joining the labor force suggests that there is more slack in the labor market than implied by the low unemployment rate.”The construction industry saw the second-highest jump in employment in January, gaining 46,000 jobs for the month and 229,000 over the last year. According to experts, these gains should have a big impact on housing in 2017, improving construction efforts and supply. “We are also encouraged by another solid increase in residential construction employment of more than 20,000 for the month,” Duncan said, “which marks a third consecutive gain of at least 15,000. More housing supply amid a gradual rise in mortgage rates should help the continuation of the housing expansion.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Aly J.

County fails to reach final four, still earns $20K

However, its berth in the Alabama 2020 Census Bowl Elite 8 earned $20,000 for the public schools in Pike County.
