Roland Head | Monday, 30th December, 2019 | More on: CCL NMC Image source: Getty Images Shareholders of FTSE 100 hospital operator NMC Health (LSE: NMC) saw the value of their stock fall by more than 30% in the week before Christmas after US short seller Muddy Waters released a highly critical report on the firm.Muddy Waters’ report contains allegations of accounting irregularities. NMC has strenuously denied any such irregularities, but I suspect that many investors will be concerned about this situation and unsure how to act.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 this article I’m going to take a broader look at NMC and give my view on the stock. I’ll also consider the outlook for another FTSE 100 stock with a strong track record of growth.What’s the story?NMC Health is the largest private healthcare operator in the UAE. According to the firm, it’s also “amongst the leading fertility service providers in the world”. Last year, 87.6% of revenue came from the UAE. The remainder came from a mix of operations in Western Europe and elsewhere in the Middle East.NMC is 46 years old, but only listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2012. This listing was followed by explosive growth that saw the group’s revenue quadruple from $551m in 2013 to $2,057m in 2018.Profits rose by 265% from $69.1m to $252m over the same period, and between January 2013 and December 2018, the share price rose by 1,289%!Although it’s publicly listed, 51% of the group’s shares are held by three individuals, including two board directors. This suggests to me that smaller investors, including UK fund managers, are unlikely to have much influence on how the company is run.Should you buy NMC?The firm has made a lot of money for early investors who held on to their shares. But the group’s rapid expansion has been fuelled by debt — my analysis shows that net debt has risen from $63.7m to $1,521m since 2013.In fairness, this business does seem to generate plenty of cash. But it spends a lot too. I’m concerned about what will happen when the group’s double-digit annual growth rate starts to slow.The stock’s recent fall has left it looking more reasonably valued, on about 15 times 2019 forecast earnings.However, I feel that the firm’s high degree of leverage and its overseas focus add risk for UK investors and make the outlook harder to assess. I’ve put this stock in the ‘too difficult’ pile and will continue to avoid it in 2020.One stock I’ve been buyingI’m more bullish about cruise ship operator Carnival (LSE: CCL). This FTSE 100 firm is the largest company in this fast-growing sector, but the Carnival share price has fallen by 25% over the last two years.Rising costs and one-off political events have hit the group’s operating margin, which fell by almost 2% to 15.7% last year. However, I still see this as an attractive level of profitability that reflects the group’s market-leading scale.Looking ahead, the company says that bookings so far for 2020 are at record levels, in terms of occupancy.I think that the Carnival share price probably got ahead of itself when it peaked at over £50 in 2017. But with the price now hovering around £37, the stock trades on just 11 times forecast earnings with a 4.2% dividend yield. I think this looks decent value. I’ve been adding the shares to my own portfolio in recent months. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Edward Sheldon, CFA | Friday, 9th October, 2020 | More on: KIE Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images Kier’s share price has tanked. Here’s my view on the stock now When I last covered Kier (LSE: KIE) shares, on 8 July, I said that they were starting to look interesting as a turnaround play. The company had just released an encouraging trading update, and the short sellers had backed off the stock.However, I also noted that there were a few issues that concerned me. Kier’s high level of debt was one. Analysts’ earnings downgrades were another. So, I wasn’t prepared to rate Kier shares as a ‘buy’.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 hindsight, that was the right decision. Since my article, the shares have fallen from 78p to 50.6p – a decline of 35%. So, why has Kier’s share price fallen recently? And what’s my view on the stock now?Why has Kier’s share price fallen?One reason the share price has continued to fall recently is that full-year results published on 17 September were quite disappointing.These results, which the group said reflected “nine months of good strategic progress and three months’ impact of Covid-19,” showed a drop in operating profit of 52% and a fall in adjusted basic earnings per share (EPS) of 50%. They also showed an 86% increase in net debt to £310.3m.“This financial year has been a difficult one for the group,” commented CEO Andrew Davies. Looking at these results, it’s clear that the company has been impacted significantly by Covid-19.Another reason Kier’s share price has fallen is that City analysts have continued to lower their EPS forecasts for this year. Over the last month, for example, the consensus EPS forecast has fallen 11% to 33.3p. Earnings downgrades tend to put downward pressure on a company’s share price.My view on Kier shares nowIn light of the recent developments here, I see Kier shares as quite risky at present.One issue that concerns me is the high level of debt. At 30 June, Kier had total equity on its balance sheet of £240.8m. So, its net debt-to-equity ratio (£310.30/£240.80) is 1.3. That’s a little too high for my liking.I’ll point out that Stockopedia gives Kier an ‘Altman Z2’ score (this is a measure of financial strength) of -1.65. This indicates a ‘serious risk of financial distress’ within the next two years.Another thing that concerns me a little bit is that no directors have purchased Kier shares in recent months. Even when the share price fell below 50p, no insiders stepped up to buy shares. This suggests that Kier shares may not be a bargain even at the current low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 1.5.All things considered, I think the shares are best avoided for now. They may rebound at some stage. However, in my view, there is still risk to the downside.  Why take a huge risk on Kier shares when there are so many great companies you could invest in right now?

If so click here. THE LATE Clem Thomas and his son Greg produced what most regard as the best Lions history yet published. But proving that you can’t have too much of a good thing, Scottish rugby writers Jeff Connor and Martin Hannan have weighed in with a book of real quality, writes Rugby World deputy editor Alan Pearey. Based on both the authors’ own tour experiences and fresh interviews with a host of legendary players, Once Were Lions manages to neatly sum up the Lions’ history while addressing some burning questions of modern times. If you want to know why Gerald Davies didn’t tour in 1974 or Gareth Edwards skipped 1977, the answer’s here; but Connor and Hannan have also taken the bull by the horns by examining such issues as Will Carling’s sulk in 1993, the Healey/Dawson dissent of 2001, the Kiwi violence of 1966, the drinking culture that undermined the early 1980s tours, the scathing manager reports that were covered up, and the hypocrisy of the Wilson government in trying to stop the 1974 tour while trade with South Africa increased.The stories come thick and fast and none is more startling than the day Don Hayward, who emigrated to New Zealand, received a knock on the door from a 42-year-old woman. She was a love child from a one-night stand on the 1950 tour and for the last five years of his life Hayward cherished the daughter he never knew he had.Each chapter concludes with news of what each tour’s Lions went on to do, and at times it makes painful reading. England’s John Williams, a popular 1955 tourist, developed Alzheimer’s so severely that he was detained under the Mental Health Act. The Lions Trust made a hefty donation to help pay for his care – being a Lion is to be part of a very special family.RW RATING 5/5last_img read more

Following reports in the UK press that some charities working nationally are down as much as 30% in their fundraising because of the impact of Third World disaster appeals, particularly the tsunami, some Irish charities have confirmed a similar trend. The story in the English Independent newspaper (3rd August) talked of a ‘crisis’ and ‘devastation’ amongst some national charities because many people had diverted their giving to high profile disaster appeals. Some Irish charities which work within Ireland only — on condition that they remain annoymous — have echoed the concerns of their English colleagues and say they have taken a definite hit from the tsunami.

TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello printTCU forward JD Miller attempts a lay-up against K-State center Makol Mawien. Photo by Heesoo Yang. TCU’s inability to win the rebounding battle, capitalize off turnovers and generate consistent offense doomed them to their third consecutive defeat against No. 18 Kansas State, 64-52. It’s the Horned Frogs sixth loss in their last seven games. The 52 points was a season-low for the Horned Frogs, whose 14 turnovers turned into 21 Kansas State points. The loss turns the team’s Saturday morning contest in Austin against the Longhorns into a true must-win for their NCAA Tournament as their record dropped to 18-12 overall and 6-11 in conference. The loss also adds pressure onto their performance in the Big 12 tournament next week in Kansas City. The loss dropped TCU to eighth in the conference standings, but Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber said the league is good enough for eight teams to qualify for March Madness. TCU head coach Jamie Dixon echoed his sentiment. “The conference is definitely that strong, we can get eight games, so the only problem we’ll fight is our league record,” Dixon said. “If your teams are beating everyone in non-conference, we have six losses to Kansas, Texas Tech, and Kansas State. Not many teams in the tournament are going to beat them.” TCU’s offense was hampered by Kouat Noi’s first zero-point game of the season, along with just two points from JD Miller on his final regular season game in Schollmaier Arena. “It’s a big deal obviously since Kouat is one of our leading scorers, but he did help on the defensive end today,” guard RJ Nembhard said. The Wildcats’ defensive game plan was simple, don’t give Noi any air-space. “He’s a great shooter, so we just tried to stay with him to force tough and contested shots because he can get it going quickly,” Kansas State guard Kamau Stokes said. Noi picking up two fouls in the first few minutes of the game didn’t help matters either for the Horned Frogs. To win, TCU would have needed to match its largest halftime comeback since the season-opener when they rallied from a nine-point deficit in the season opener against CSU-Bakersfield.A positive from the game was TCU freshman center Kevin Samuel posting a game-high 17 points. “I just played my hardest to try and get our team to win and leave everything out on the floor,” Samuel said. TCU center Kevin Samuel scores over the K-State defense. Photo by Heesoo YangThe Horned Frogs began to claw back at the midpoint of the second half, going on a 10-0 run that trimmed K-State’s edge to 11 with 12:46 to go, 51-40. Nembhard scored eight points during the run and finished with 12 for the game. “There’s no quit in us with these seniors,” he said. “They have been through a lot. Alex and JD, a lot of ups and downs with this program. We’ve had a lot of ups-and-downs with this team. They’ve done a good job of keeping us together through the toughest times.”A Kendric Davis jumper as the shot clock expired with eight minutes to go had TCU back within single-digits, 55-46, for the first time since halftime. Davis finished with seven points and two assists. Robinson followed with a lay-up to get the Horned Frogs within seven, 55-48. He also had seven points and two assists.Trailing by seven, 57-50, KSU guard Kamau Stokes coaxed a foul out of Nembhard from behind the arc with three seconds on the shot clock, which allowed the Wildcats to regain a double-digit advantage via the free-throw line, 60-50. They wouldn’t relinquish the lead for the rest of the game, spoiling senior night for the Horned Frogs. TCU’s regular-season finale will tip-off at 11 a.m. Saturday in Austin against the Texas Longhorns, a team they defeated 65-61 on Jan. 23. “We are going to play our best game Saturday, that’s what I told our guys, and I told them we are going to find a way to play our best defense, our best game, and get a win,” Dixon said. “Every bubble team seems to lose, so let’s find out what happens if we go win Saturday.

The students presented their honors research theses last month as part of the College of Science and Engineerings honors research forum. Students shared their findings and conclusions over Zoom with other students, family and mentors.“Most of these students have been working on these projects for two to three years or longer,” said John Horner, a professor in the biology department and organizer of the forum. “This a great opportunity for them to share what they’ve done with the campus community.”The forum had always been held in person in the past, said Horner. For the Zoom format to run smoothly, graduate students volunteered to help run the show behind the scenes and take care of the technology.The program was split into four presentations by department. Research topics ranged from studies on early-life stress and its impact on inflammation, to university students’ knowledge and attitudes of plant-based diets, to optimal strategies for the board game ‘The Settlers of Catan.’Brooke Boisvert, a senior neuroscience major, presented her research on the impact of early-life stress and epigenetics. She started research the second semester of her sophomore year in professor Gary Boehm’s lab – and joked that there was definitely a learning curve, especially when lab mice were involved.TCU student Brooke Boisvert worked with lab mice like this as part of her honors research project (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)“You have to learn how to fail,” Boisvert said. “If you don’t fail, you’re not going to learn how to succeed, and in a lot of ways, the failures are the things that make you better, because you’re seeing what went wrong and how to fix it in the future.”Students in the John V. Roach Honors College have two options for completing their upper-division requirements: university honors seminar-based classes or departmental honors in their major. For departmental honors, students can “define and carry out a sustained original research or creative project,” according to the Honors College website.Horner said that even if students do not end up in a career centered around the topics and research questions they studied in their undergraduate research, they gain valuable experience from the research process.“I personally think [research] is one of the most important, if not the most important educational experiences a student can have,” he said. “It helps foster their thinking in such a way that they keep an open mind and keep inquiring about things.”A hallmark of the honors research process specifically is working with a mentor and committee. Horner, who has worked with honors students in the past but did not have any students present at the forum this year, said that problem solving is a key part of the process.“That’s what we want to be teaching our students to do, to learn how to take in information, to approach addressing a question, how to collect data and information on that question and how to interpret it,” said Horner.Other research presentation opportunities will be held this week. The Michael and Sally McCracken Annual Student Research Symposium, open to all undergraduate or graduate students who conducted research in the College of Science & Engineering, will be held April 16. Registration for the virtual event can be found on the Student Research Symposium website.Four of the presentations selected from the honors research forum competed in the university-wide Boller Competition on Tuesday.

The symposium program aims to develop strong female leaders among Southern California regional high school juniors, seniors, and college students. This year it will expand nationally due to the growth of virtual and digital platforms.“The Rose Bowl Institute is providing critical educational resources to youth and community through conversations and dialogues to shift mindsets,” said Shuster. “I hope that the gift from my family inspires others to do what they can to continue sparking this valuable initiative as our venerable stadium leans into its upcoming centennial birthday in 2022.”The Rose Bowl Women’s Empowerment Symposium will return for its second year on Sept. 16, 17, and 18 as a free virtual educational event to empower young women under the newly formed Rose Bowl Institute, and will include key speakers such as former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Olympian Lauren Gibbs, sportscaster Jessica Mendoza, NBC Los Angeles news anchor Beverly White, soccer stars Brandi Chastain and Julie Foudy, among others.The virtual event, which will also offer scholarships opportunities to those who attend, is open for pre-registration for high school and college-aged females and males at https://womensempowermentsymposium.splashthat.com/.The Rose Bowl Institute is a one-of-a-kind platform that champions key sports values such as sportsmanship, leadership, citizenship, and more through educational programs, intimate dialogues, and awards to inspire youth and community life. Launched in early August, the Institute has already impacted thousands during its initial dialogue on Race and Sports. The Women’s Empowerment Symposium will continue this trend as it builds college and career-focused female leaders with targeted education, enrichment, and engagement.Throughout the Women’s Empowerment Symposium, topical panels, speakers, and networking opportunities showcase female leadership, confidence, and character during the free virtual sessions. Female leaders of the future will benefit from the Rose Bowl Institute’s approach to learning from sports values and experiences.As a long-standing member of the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation’s advisory board, Shuster is also a member of the Institute’s founding advisory board that is comprised of key civic and sports leaders from around the nation, such as Ronnie Lott, Ann Meyers Drysdale, Billie Jean King, Jessica Mendoza, Brandi Chastain, Dan Fouts, and Marcellus Wiley.“Mark has been a critical supporter of so many Rose Bowl Stadium initiatives over the years,” said Stadium CEO Darryl Dunn. “Without Mark’s belief in our vision, our momentum would not be what it is today. We are so thankful for that.”Shuster has been an active supporter of the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation’s vision for many years through supporting various initiatives to preserve, protect, and enhance the National Historic Landmark stadium.As the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation continues its INSPIRE centennial campaign effort which aims to raise $40 million before the venue’s 100th birthday in 2022, the addition of the Rose Bowl Institute educational platform to supplement the capital improvement and heritage protection initiatives has already bolstered its philanthropic support base. The campaign is currently near 50 percent complete toward its initial goal.“Thank you to Mark and his family for continuing to inspire a culture of giving as we protect, preserve and enhance the future of this great venue and the communities it serves,” said Legacy’s Chief Development Officer Dedan Brozino. “Mark’s specific interest to invest in the Women’s Empowerment Symposium and the Rose Bowl Institute shows his family’s deep commitment to the importance of educating our youth on key values that will help them navigate a positive and empowered life.”A graduate of Fresno State University, Shuster is the founder and president of the Pasadena-based Shuster Financial Group, LLC.
