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. Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” As investors, it is only natural that the more exciting, headline-grabbing news stories are the ones that get our attention. Stories of political strife or a new technology get the imagination fired up, but as Warren Buffett would tell you, many times it is the underlying, perhaps boring, fundamentals that can make or break an investment.I for one, then, was excited last week when BAE Systems (LSE: BA) said it looks like it will be able to clear its pension deficit five years early, with a £1bn injection in the coming months and a further £490m this year set to more than halve the number.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…Strong foundationsAs I said, some company news tends to grab headlines and some doesn’t, but for me when a company can afford to invest in this kind of non-headline-grabbing, fundamental aspect of its business, it is a far greater indication of its strength.BAE will be borrowing the money to help pay off its pension deficit. Its forecasts for free cash flow suggest it will rise to £1bn this year, compared to £850m in 2019. BAE’s pension, which services around 180,000 members, is one of the largest in the FTSE 100, and has long overshadowed the company’s investment potential.Though borrowing to pay off the pension will raise the company’s net debt levels to £1.8bn, by paying the deficit off early it will also end the need for top-up payments early as well – the last payment is now expected in 2021.The one word of caution I would have is that unlike other companies such as BT, which also held a massive pension deficit, BAE hasn’t closed off its scheme to new employees. This of course leaves the pension deficit open to expanding again, though I am of the opinion that BAE will have the cash to cover it.Income generatorFor me, I have always seen BAE as a solid, safe investment that produces a nice income. In fact I agree with my Foolish colleague Alan Oscroft, that BAE is probably one of the most dependable income generators.Due to the recent gains the shares have been making, its yield now stands at about 3.5% – not the largest number by any means but certainly towards the bottom end of what I look for, personally. Indeed I would see an intermediate price-dip as a perfect opportunity to invest in BAE to take advantage of the higher yield.Annual growth of the dividend has also been pretty solid. Though over the last five years the annual growth rate averages just 2.2% – again solid but not exactly revolutionary – this figure actually hides the more recent growth levels.The annual dividend was recently increased by 4.5%, and if BAE’s strength and free cash flow continue the way they have, I see no reason not to expect similar dividend growth in the next year or two. Paying down its pension deficit will only help with this goal, and makes BAE a share well worth considering. Karl has shares in BAE Systems.

Jonathan Smith | Monday, 20th April, 2020 | More on: FRES Jonathan Smith does not own shares in Fresnillo. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Fresnillo. 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. Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Jonathan Smith Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Three months ago, relatively few of us had heard the word coronavirus, let alone Covid-19 (which was only named in February). Those of us who had are unlikely to have expected the global consequences it has thrown up. Yet here we are in April with the FTSE 100 index down 24%. This bear market has taken so many firms lower with it. But there have been some notable exceptions, one of which is Fresnillo (LSE: FRES).Running the numbers shows us that the Fresnillo share price has rallied 11% in the past three months. This is a strong performance for any period. Yet when you take into account that the average FTSE 100 firm has lost 24% in the same period, it becomes an eyebrow raiser. So what has happened here?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…Mining for gemsI try to mine for stock gems to invest in. Fresnillo mines for gold, silver and other base metals. This in itself has been one source of the share price rally we have seen recently. Over three months the share price is up, but if we pull it out over six months we see a similar rally. If you overlay the prices of gold and silver, you can see a correlation. Gold is the obvious one, trading below $1,500 per ounce six months ago but above $1,700 per ounce last week. Silver has not performed as well over six months (moving from $17 to $15), but certainly has not seen the value significantly erode. Investors are therefore likely anticipating a boost to revenue and profit for the firm when the first-half earnings report comes out later this year.Virus ready?Another factor to to take into account when thinking about why Fresnillo shares have held up is the 2019 earnings report. This came out in early March and showed mixed results. Revenue was up 0.8% but gross profit fell almost 41%. Yet the market actually took the mixed results well, with no sudden drop in the share price.An aspect that will have encouraged investors not to sell the stock as the virus drove the FTSE 100 sell-off during March was the financial position of the firm. As of the end of 2019, the firm had $336m in cash/near cash funds. Added to this was $142m set aside for dividends, and $717m for capital expenditure and exploration.This is a healthy position to be in, and covers a lot of investors’ demands. Those holding the stock for income will be happy with not having the dividend cut. Those buying for longer-term growth will be happy to see the investment in exploration. Finally, for investors buying for safety, the cash position should allow it to see out turbulent times.Is Fresnillo still a buy?Given the stock has already rallied, is there further potential? Well yes, I think so. The gold price should remain supported while the global situation remains unsettled, which could last for a long time. The firm is also not in a sector whereby it relies on public interaction too much, so 2020 earnings should not be overly impacted. Thus, we could see further upside and is worth considering to buy, I feel. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Munster team Cashel are thriving in their first taste of senior rugbyHow well the successful blending of youth and experience is demonstrated at Cashel, from rural Munster.Howard Stanley and Emmet Hall, both 21, sandwich 22-year-old hooker Dave McCormack in the youngest of front rows. Two rows back can be found the strength of the team: Ed Leamy (ex-Cork Con and the brother of Munster’s Denis) and the O’Connor brothers Brendan (the captain and ex-Connacht) and John Ed (ex-Irish Amateurs captain) have all played at a higher level and are relishing lifting Cashel to new heights.The club was formed in 1919 and this season is their first in senior rugby. Having won seven trophies (first and second team) last year, Cashel plundered wins over Ards (42-8) and Nenagh (21-3) to reach Christmas as leaders of Ulster Bank League Division 2B.They were the only unbeaten team in Ireland’s National Leagues and, with just 41 points conceded, had the meanest defence. “The players are a driven bunch,” says head coach Ian Dunne, “and nothing they achieve surprises me.”Dunne, whose coaching team includes former Scotland scrum-half Greig Oliver, oversees a team strong on family ethos. There are four sets of brothers and the desire to play both for Cashel and for each other promises to take the club far.Half-a-dozen games remain and the top two go up, with third place securing a play-off.Fitness coach Shaun Curry nominated Cashel for our award. “John Hayes’s club, Bruff, are our role model,” he says. “They were in the junior ranks a few years ago and are now in 1B. If we can emulate them I’d be very proud.” Would you like to sign up to Rugby World’s excellent weekly email newsletter? Click here.For Back Issues Contact John Denton Services at 01733-385-170
Broadening his search for hot topics, Paul Williams brings you the five things he’s clocked in the last month of world rugby… The same can be said of Bordeaux Begles who currently lie fourth in the Top 14. This season they are playing sublime rugby, with a genuine commitment to total rugby where all 15 can handle the ball at pace. Okay, Bordeaux aren’t exactly scraping around in the gutter for Euros but their squad is nowhere near the standard of some of teams in that league. Yet this team shredded Clermont Auvergne in the latest round of Top 14 games by 51 -21, scoring six tries. It’s heartening to see.Read all about Dan Biggar and two of the Exeter Chiefs’ most exciting young players in the November issue of Rugby World.

Stunned: Leicester Tigers look on as London Irish celebrate a shock win in the Aviva Premiership Slipping giantsIt was reported last week that global tiger populations have stabilised. This will come as little consolation to the people of Leicester, as their Tigers are in a really bad way. Leicester Tigers, once giants of European rugby, have had a desperately disappointing start to the Aviva Premiership.They currently sit tenth in the table with a points difference of minus 42. In truth, losing three from five matches this early in the season isn’t that disastrous – but the nature of the defeats are. The 45-0 loss to Bath was an undoubted eye opener for Richard Cockerill and in fact such was the severity of the loss that it would have felt more like an eye-gouge. The performance against Gloucester was equally alarming. Leicester’s wide channel defence was so badly organised that it was ‘jumbled’ after just three phases, setting up simple overlaps on the wing. But Leicester aren’t the only European giants struggling. So too are Toulouse who lie 11th in the Top 14. The overwhelming popularity of football means that the demise of former European gods Manchester United receive the headlines, but Leicester and Toulouse’s desperate early showings are equally noteworthy.Ospreys prove a pointThe Ospreys proved a huge point in the opening weeks of the Guinness Pro12 – 22 points in fact. They are a point off top and have swept all teams and pre-season criticism aside. This summer’s sceptism over the Ospreys’ potential seems way off the mark, although initially understandable. Losing a spine of Adam Jones, Richard Hibbard, Ian Evans and Ryan Jones seemed like a major problem but this now seems not to be the case. The enormously promising Nicky Smith and increasingly impressive Scott Baldwin have performed well in the front row. The low key but highly successful acquisition of Josh Matavesi has given the Ospreys a No 12 who can genuinely hit the line and tie in the opposition’s back row forwards from phase play.Dan Evans has been faultless at fullback and Jeff Hassler is continuing to run lines last witnessed by kamikazes during the Second World War. But the biggest praise must be reserved for Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb and Alun-Wyn Jones. All are playing at the peak of their game in every aspect. Well done the Ospreys.The definitive No 7: Richie McCaw trudges off during his 134th All Blacks gameMcCaw is the benchmarkThe final round of The Rugby Championship saw Richie McCaw play his 134th game of test rugby. A truly remarkable number. In a modern game where 50 cap milestones can be achieved in under five years of test rugby, McCaw’s career raises the bar in what is expected from a genuine great of the game, particularly when you consider the position that he plays. The collisions endured by modern sevens, particularly with rugby’s recent penchant for flying, armless ruck clear-outs, are genuinely astonishing. Of course, this isn’t to denigrate the achievements of the other great test centurions such as Brian O’Driscoll, George Gregan and Ronan O’Gara et al; but achieving 130 plus caps in the backline is an easier task.McCaw is the only openside in the world’s top ten most capped players. But by far the most staggering aspect of McCaw’s haul is the team in which they were earned. The All Blacks are the SAS of rugby – the best of the best. This is a country that only deemed the talent of Xavier Rush, Ben Blair and Casey Laulala worthy of 14 caps between them. In reality, earning one cap for the All Blacks is almost worth one and a half caps for any other nation. Not sure we’ll ever witness another McCaw and he still has at least 12 months to go. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The high ball is the new scrumThe rugby world loves a grey area. The game’s law book looks like the research centre at Just for Men.No sooner has the scrum become a more stable aspect of the game, albeit not perfect, then a new area of confusion emerges. The challenge for high balls has become a contentious issue recently, with a series of high profile decisions seemingly refereed in very different ways. It is of course a very serious issue. Having two players hurtling towards each other, with their eyes trained on the ball, then flying into the air like two testosterone fuelled buzzards is chaotic at best. With neither player anchored to the ground any force is likely to tip one or both players over.It is easy to see why the mid-air challenge is receiving so much attention from referees. The resulting player safety issues are exactly the same as a tip tackle or ‘playing’ a lineout jumper in the air. This new focus is also altering the way in which this area of the game is coached. Some coaches are encouraging players to stay down after a mid-air challenge so that the resulting break in play ‘encourages’ the referee to consult the TMO and look for an infringement. Let’s hope the high-take doesn’t become rugby’s new low.Rattling Clermont: Bordeaux’s Metuisela Talebula attacks the giantsSuccess doesn’t require superstarsThe opening month of the season has shown that you don’t necessarily need a tonne of gold dust to succeed – sometimes a few kilos of granite will do. There was a magical moment during September when both Exeter Chiefs and Connacht topped their relevant leagues. Yes, Connacht have Mils Muliana, and Exeter have Jack Nowell but the core of their teams are just plain old hardworking pros. TAGS: Leicester TigersOspreys

In order to heighten how it relates to its surroundings, the architects took a simple house to the extreme.

The house is all on one level, sited so that the landscape rises and plunges on all four sides, in order to visually counteract the future loss of mobility. In order to maximize the experience of outdoors, the screened porch can be enjoyed year-round, thanks to a large fieldstone fireplace and interchangeable screened and glass wall panels.

One of the principal materials in this project is cypress. We like to re-interpret context in a way that highlights both the newness of our work and casts the original context in a new light. The agricultural buildings in the area, which are simple wood framed structures with field stone bases, really resonated with us. The stone bases anchor the buildings to the ground, and the lighter, wood structures engage the surrounding site. We felt this gesture was really appropriate, and we could use it to really call attention to the building’s position within it’s site. We chose to clad the building in vertical boards of cypress, stained with ebony, because it is a really beautiful wood, and the translucent stain showcased its beauty.Save this picture!© Michael MoranWe used it at the interior as well; cypress with the same ebony stain as the exterior creates the ‘house within the house’ that the kitchen service bar inhabits, while a special blue stained cypress enclosure plays double duty as a kitchen banquette enclosure, a spatial divider within the open plan.Save this picture!© Michael MoranProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: “Tomorrows” – Urban Fictions for Possible FuturesCall for SubmissionsCall for Entries: Architecture-Themed Pumpkin DesignsCall for Submissions Share 2016 Year: United States Projects Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/796942/undermountain-oneill-rose-architects Clipboard Undermountain / O’Neill Rose Architects CopyAbout this officeO’Neill Rose ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSheffieldUnited StatesPublished on October 10, 2016Cite: ” Undermountain / O’Neill Rose Architects” 10 Oct 2016.

Donors would give just £4.22 to save their favourite charity from closing, about the cost of two high street cups of coffee.The survey by NoP for Samaritans shows that people give when there is a crisis or celebrity involvement but not regularly to charity. Even if they donate on these occasions many do not plan to do so again.The survey findings, which questioned over 1000 men and women across England and Scotland, also show that although 81% of Britons donated to the Tsunami appeal, only 10% of those who gave for the first time will give more to charity as a result and a worrying one in six actually expect to give less.

Chief executive with Samaritans, David King, said, “These findings show what Samaritans already knows: that we all have good intentions, but it often takes a celebrity or a significant media event to highlight a cause and remind people to donate to charity.” More than half the people surveyed said that they would give £6 if Samaritans was at risk of closing.People in the North are more generous to charity than those in the south, according to the survey; and once again, it is confirmed that those who are poorer are more generous than the rich.Other findings from the survey include:* women are more charitable with 45% giving to charity each month, compared with only 45% of men* 1 in 5 of men (19%) does not give to charity at all compared with 16% of women* those with a household income of under £25,000 were also revealed as those willing to give the most to keep their favourite charity open if it were facing closure due to insufficient funds; 43% said they would be willing to donate up to £5 a month.* older people are more generous with 50% of those over 65 giving to charity regularly. In contrast 24% of younger people aged 15-24 have never given to charity.
FRSB publishes first adjudication on fundraising complaint Howard Lake | 25 January 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Fundraising Standards Board Law / policy The Fundraising Standards Board has published its first full adjudication on a complaint about fundraising. The complaint against direct mail by Cancer Research UK was not upheld.The FRSB had handled the complaint after a member of the public had complained first to the charity. The complaint focused on the frequency of mailings, particularly unaddressed mailings, and their enclosures. The FRSB Board considered that there was not sufficient evidence to support the complaint about the number of mailings received.“This first complaint that has gone to stage three of our process has shown our system works well and is robust,” said Jon Scourse, Chief Executive of the FRSB. “We’ve also been handling some complaints which have been resolved at the second stage but the majority of complaints will be settled directly by the charity concerned”.He added that the Board would be able to report further on its work in the Spring when it published its annual report. The Board, which administers the scheme for the self-regulation of fundraising in the UK, was launched to the public in February 2007.www.frsb.org.uk 51 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
