The AstraZeneca share price is climbing. Here’s why I’d buy today

Here’s why I’d buy today Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Alan Oscroftcenter_img The FTSE 100 crash has included some spectacular falls across the board. Some banking shares have lost around 40% of their value in just a couple of months. Some safer stocks, like supermarkets, have held on to small falls. But AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) has held up. In fact, its share price has been bucking the trend, up 9% since the Covid-19 collapse started.It’s perhaps not surprising if pharmaceuticals firms do well during the race to find a vaccine. And that’s surely partly behind the AstraZeneca price rise.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 virus race has helped push up some smaller pharmaceuticals shares way higher than that. Anyone who has owned shares in Novacyt since the start of the year now sits on a 30-bagger. That’s the kind of rare reward you can enjoy if you happen to hold shares in small-cap companies at a fortunate time. But I can’t see the AstraZeneca share price doing that.A surge like Novacyt’s can also lead to pain if those watching the soaring price jump on the bandwagon too late. I think those considering buying shares in the coronavirus test-maker now, after the price has rocketed, should be cautious.AstraZeneca share priceI also wouldn’t use coronavirus hopes as a reason to jump on the AstraZeneca share price either. A number of firms engaged in research will presumably share in any potential benefits from coronavirus treatments. And the benefits will very likely be relatively short term too. At least, I hope they will. I’d rather take a vaccine that sees it off for good than ongoing profits from longer-term treatments.No, I think of the AstraZeneca share price as a way into the firm’s drugs development pipeline. It’s been years since the company, along with GlaxoSmithKline, suffered from the loss of key patents. New boss Pascal Soriot saw the way forward in drug development, and other pursuits were sidelined with that in mind.And that’s what I’m focused on, long-term drug development. That’s surely what’s going to keep the cash rolling in over the coming decades, and the dividends rolling out again and into shareholders’ pockets.First quarterWednesday’s first-quarter update had CEO Soriot speaking of “another quarter of strong growth across every therapy area and region.” The period’s highlights included key progress for oncology drugs Tagrisso and Koselugo, as well as diabetes medication Farxiga. And I think those are likely to provide better longer-term boosts to the AstraZeneca share price than virus treatments.As far as the company’s Covid-19 work goes, it’s donated nine million face masks to healthcare workers so far, and is researching the virus itself. In Soriot’s words: “We hope our efforts to protect organs from damage, mitigate the cytokine storm and the associated hyperinflammatory state, and target the virus prove to be successful.” I couldn’t have put it better myself.Bottom lineOn the financial front, revenue is up 16%, with EPS up 27% (17% and 33% respectively at constant currency). Analysts are forecasting the start of a strong earnings growth spell this year, and I think Wednesday’s news is cause for optimism. The AstraZeneca share price indicates a forward P/E multiple of 25 this year, dropping to 20 next.I think that’s an attractive price for an excellent company.

Five things we learnt about rugby in February

first_imgSalary cap breaches are dangerous, the effects far-reaching and they shouldn’t be dismissed with a wry smile and a perfunctory press release.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. When you lose, someone must take the blame. It’s usually the head coach, but following England’s defeat by Wales the collective social media groin-punch was aimed at an individual player – Kyle Sinckler.The criticism was unjust. Sinckler was fantastic against Wales and his scrummaging against Rob Evans showcased the next generation of Lions props (Evans was equally impressive).On the attack: Kyle Sinckler with ball in hand against Wales (Getty Images)As solid as his scrummaging was, it was Sinckler’s tackle count that endured the post-match fallout. In 57 minutes the tighthead made 22 tackles – that is ludicrous.Many suggested that he was yanked after 57 minutes due to his fracturing temperament, but around 57 minutes is usually the mark when all front-row forwards are replaced.Related: Downtime with Kyle SincklerYes, he’s aggressive and yes, he’s a pain in the arse on the field, but that’s exactly why he’s picked. England didn’t lose that game because of Sinckler. Quite the opposite. Other than Tom Curry, he was their best player.Backs joining mauls is now legitDuring the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, backs joining mauls was usually accompanied by clown music. The sight of three 11st men joining a maul, with their combined effort exerting the same force as an ant yawning, was often a last-ditch attempt to secure the win, or some pride.However, as we have seen during this Six Nations, backs joining the maul is now a genuine tactic and one which can change a game in the opening minutes and not just the last.That backs now weigh more than 16st has led to their body weight genuinely helping move a maul forward. But arguably the biggest change has come from the way in which modern five-metre mauls are constructed.Drive together: A maul is set in the Top 14 match between Toulouse and Montpellier (Getty Images)The five-metre maul is now as effective and well-organised as a 1980s scrum. The body angles/body shape of the tight five are now almost mathematical in their construction.The benefit being that when backs now attach to the maul they are adding their momentum to a mass that is moving forward and not in some random motion like we saw in the amateur days – where half of the players were driving towards the touchline and the other half heading for the posts.It will be interesting to see how the tactic is utilised in the World Cup.Salary cap breaches affect everyoneFebruary saw Harlequins fined for a salary cap breach. It wasn’t a big fine and neither was the breach. But the importance can’t be overstated. Salary cap breaches are rugby’s ‘Butterfly Effect’. They create the wage inflation that rugby simply can’t cope with.Money game: Harlequins were fined for a salary cap breach (Getty Images)This is the major danger with stacks of cash being plowed into rugby. If it isn’t spent on physical assets, such as training facilities and academies, it will merely be added to players’ wages. This is great for the players and their agents, but foolish for the game. We will be paying more money for the same players and same talent levels. Global league can’t exclude Pacific IslandsIt may be speculation and little more. However, reports from down south suggest that the proposed World League may exclude the Pacific Island nations. This simply cannot happen.The Pacific Islands aren’t just a part of rugby, they are rugby. Take one glance at your Test/club/region team and the chances are there is least one Pacific Island player in that squad.Take a longer look at the squad lists in the Top 14, Gallagher Premiership, Guinness Pro14 and Super Rugby and you will see just how all-encompassing their presence is.The Pacific Islands have an approximate total population of 2.3m, yet their impact on the global game, per capita, is arguably the largest of any rugby community in the history of the game. Try time: Josua Tuisova scores in Fiji’s win over France last year (Getty Images) The Pacific Islands are already the production line of rugby. To limit their minuscule financial base, with exclusion from a lucrative global competition, would be to turn those nations into a puppy farm, where players are grown and then simply rehoused for a fee.Weirdly, the news seems to have had a bigger reaction in the northern hemisphere than the southern. That the Pacific Island nations are more appreciated up north is worrying and rather telling. Maybe those down south have more to gain from a downtrodden Fiji, Samoa and Tonga.Rugby is very proud of its on-field values, but sometimes its off-field values seem dichotomous.Changes to Welsh rugby are neededOn the surface, at least at Test level, things are functioning well. Wales are on a glorious winning streak, have just beaten England and are still on for the Six Nations Grand Slam. But appearances can be deceptive. And this is where Welsh rugby finds itself.The game in Wales is currently walking around with a Harrods carrier bag, yet look inside and it’s full of stuff from Poundland.In February it emerged that major changes have been discussed with regards to the Welsh regions. Mergers and closures have been tabled, as has the possibility of adding to the rugby base in North Wales.Up in the air: The future of the Welsh regions, including Ospreys and Scarlets, is in doubt (Getty Images)The reality is that Wales can’t afford four regions. Keeping four means that everyone loses. The decisions that need to be made are massive and huge swathes of the rugby public in Wales will hate them. But that isn’t the point, or what matters.This isn’t about whether your region will exist in 12 months and how it will affect your season ticket. The endgame is whether any professional teams will exist in Wales in 20 years.Or will Wales, like the Pacific Islands, become a ‘puppy-farm’ for more financially stable rugby economies.In 20 years’ time that some will feel no affinity for their nearest geographical region is a far more favorable outcome than young Welsh players going straight into a French academy aged 16. It could happen, unless something changes.Kyle Sinckler doesn’t deserve the criticism From the World League to Welsh rugby, Paul Williams assesses the game’s latest goings-on LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Secondly this will only be accomplished by crossing borders and embracing the uncertain. This project covered our trully desired design journey; the integration of all aspects of design and talented team members, bringing us results we couldn´t think of when we started. And, it specifically characterizes the client needs.Save this picture!© Martijn Heil – de ArchitectuurguideFACADE – ALUMINUM VEIL The serene exterior contrasts highly to the rough inside of this 335m2 GFA villa along the waterside. The facades consists of aluminum cooling ribs, produced by Alinel, D-type panels. Coloring differently by sunlight during the day. Reflecting on nature´s most important aspect.Save this picture!Exploded AxonometricENERGY SAVING – SUSTAINABILITYThe rough and edgy aluminum panels with their hard rigid ribs reflect sunlight in a way, looking at the facade from a distance, it turns into a smooth and soft white unblemished veil. Wrapped around the sturdy interior of the house. The ribs, 90 degrees angled to the backing panel, avoid direct sunlight to reheat the facade. The overall white color of the skin is a supporting aspect of this feature.Save this picture!© Martijn Heil – de ArchitectuurguideThe heating system of the house is fully geothermal. There is no connection to the energy company which supplies the island. We used a warmth retaining system to reuse thermal energy and most of all electricity is solar based. All lights are LED. The highly insulating and reflecting white shell (insulation: Kingspan Kooltherm) combined with the triple glass window frames, accomplished our mission to design and construct an holistic combination of architecture and sustainability onto the very detail.At the backside the house opens up and connects a large kitchen, dining and lifted living to overlook the surrounding water. The large window sliding frame measures 8 meters width and 3.2 meters height in triple glass.Save this picture!© Martijn Heil – de ArchitectuurguideCONCEPT OF DESIGN“We prefer smooth and abstract design. We live on high speed in challenging and demanding jobs and love sometimes doing risky sports. We keep up in this tough world, but feel very vulnerable at the same time. We are of all down to earth and very sensitive in our core and hearts. We try to deal with this conflicting contrast in our ways. We learn day by day. We love to have our inner being expressed around us”. Save this picture!© Martijn Heil – de ArchitectuurguidePROGRAMThe program contains about 300m2 GFA and a 35m2 terrace which arised by moving the first level 3m to the south in order to have maximum sunlight into the northern gardens along the water. On ground floor you´ll find the main entrance next to the garage. This part of the house is lifted and contains the central heart of the house with stairs in a huge void. Furthermore there is a cosy living and working area in the front south-west corner. The dining and kitchen are on garden level.

The roll patterns derived from flattening the steel plates, are symmetrically devided onto the cabinets. We used 200 year old Canadian barnwood sidings to design allmost all bathrooms furniture, sliding doors and wall coverings.Save this picture!© Martijn Heil – de ArchitectuurguideProject gallerySee allShow lessFaulknerBrowns Unveils Plan to Re-develop Bangor WaterfrontArchitecture NewsLineCAD Offers Solid Collection of Free Architecture CAD Blocks (No Strings Attached)Architecture News Sharelast_img read more

eBay launches Big Christmas Charity Sell fundraising initiative

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Murray Lambell, eBay UK General Manager, said: “With charities braced for a considerable reduction in fundraising this Christmas season, we want to support our eBay for Charity community and help our customers raise money for the causes they care about when they sell on eBay. If every household were to sell either a piece of clothing, book or toy this Christmas and donate 100% of the sale, we would raise over £400 million for charity.” Research from Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) shows that more than half of UK charities (54%) face a loss of income this Christmas due to the impact of the ongoing pandemic. One in two of those surveyed (53%) said they needed to make a shift to online fundraising in order to try and make up some of the shortfall and 46% said they felt that their supporters would be open to donating online.  The research also found that a quarter of charities fear they will have to close their doors within a year if they do not receive additional support and of those, one in 10 said they are unlikely to survive the next six months.Catherine Mahoney, Research Manager at Charities Aid Foundation, said:“Charities are telling us that they are looking at a very difficult end to what has been a terrible year with so many relying heavily on the funds they raise at Christmas to keep supporting the causes close to our hearts. This year, so many traditional opportunities to give are just not there, be that because of closed charity shops, charity tin collections unable to take place and a massive reduction in the use of cash. It is, however, encouraging to see that many are confident that their donors are open to giving online. We hope that thanks to ideas like eBay’s Big Christmas Charity Sell, this leads to a much-needed boost for charities so that they can continue to deliver vital support to so many people across the UK and overseas.”Ellie Clarke, Corporate Partnerships Manager at RSPCA, commented:“Like many charities, this has been a hugely challenging year for us, and it’s only through the continued support of our donors that we’ve been able to continue rescuing animals most in need. We’re so pleased that eBay have brought back their Big Charity Sell initiative, which in May saw us raise more than £2,500 via the eBay for Charity platform.”  eBay is asking people to join in its Big Christmas Charity Sell this month and raise money through their sales for charity.With data from eBay revealing that the average UK home has 42 unwanted items worth an estimated £500, the campaign asks people to sell their preloved items and donate between 10% and 100% of the proceeds to charity. Between 1 and 20 December, eBay will give £5 for every £1 customers donate when selling on the platform, up to a total of £500,000 and capped at £25,000 per charity.To participate in the Big Christmas Charity Sell, customers just need to click “Donate a portion to charity” in the listing flow, choose a charity, and decide what percentage of their sale to donate. Nearly 350 charities have signed up so far including Oxfam, NSPCC, Shelter, Marie Curie, RSPCA, Help for Heroes and The Trussell Trust.eBay will prioritise distributing donations pledged to these charities, and if there are funds remaining, eBay will distribute these equally amongst those charities that customers donated to via ‘Community Selling’ over the campaign duration but which did not opt in to the campaign.Last year, eBay’s buyers and sellers raised more than £27 million in unrestricted funding for charity organisations – an increase of 17% compared to 2018, and it is hoping to do even better this year.

#J20 mass protests planned: FIGHT TRUMP!

first_imgJan. 1 — People are organizing all over the United States to go to Washington, D.C., on Friday, Jan. 20, and spoil Donald Trump’s “inhoguration.” The racist, sexist predator threatening to ramp up the nuclear arms race will be met with mass protests at #J20Resist.J20 organizers are calling for people to gather at what they are renaming “Anti-Columbus Plaza” in front of D.C.’s Union Station at 6 a.m. on Jan. 20. A march on the White House will begin at 10 a.m.The cops and agencies of the state are trying to stop people from saying “No to Trump!” Racist cops love Trump, who called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and who wants to crush the Black Lives Matter movement.Ludicrous limits are being set to attempt to stop demonstrators. Among the items the cops are trying to prohibit at checkpoints are backpacks, balloons and even signs larger than 8 by 6 by 4 inches — about the size of half a sheet of typing paper!“Many restrictions are vague, all-encompassing, contradictory and open to police interpretation,” said New York J20 organizer Taryn Fivek. “All are intended to restrict people’s freedom of assembly, freedom of speech and freedom of expression.”Organizers not deterred by restrictionsBut none of these police state measures are stopping organizers from filling buses. J20 organizer Nate Peters says that 100 people have already signed up to go from New York City. Buses are leaving from 147 W. 24th Street in Manhattan at midnight on Jan. 20. The deadline for NYC ticket sales is Jan. 11.Baltimore activists at the Harriet Tubman Solidarity Center are organizing a Martin Luther King Jr. march on Saturday, Jan. 14, to kick off a week of action leading up to J20. The MLK Day march will link the student and youth movement against Trump with the movement by community residents. It will demand an end to police terror; jobs, not jails; and a $15 minimum wage with union rights. The Baltimore and Maryland Organizing Committee for J20 Resist will also be getting people on MARC trains to go to D.C. for J20.

Looking Forward for Homebuyers

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Looking Forward for Homebuyers Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago A recent report predicts that over half of current on-market listings will sell below original list prices in Q2 2019. The Knock Deals Forecast takes a look at which U.S. markets will have the highest percentage of homes that sell below their original list prices in Q2 2019.“As we head into Spring Homebuying Season, I’m extremely excited to release our second National Knock Deals Forecast of where home buyers across the U.S. can find savings – whether in their current market or as they make the move to another city,” said Sean Black, Co-Founder and CEO of Knock. “Our findings will help more buyers take advantage of opportunities for savings that can make a life-changing move possible for them and their families.”Knock predicts that 75 percent current on-market listings will sell below their original list prices in Q2 2019, slightly below the Q1 2019 prediction of 77 percent, though 72 percent of homes sold below their original list prices in Q1. However, Knock notes that the lower prediction represents a significant year over year increase.“The Q1 Forecast, which may have seemed to be a big jump over 2018, was actually much closer to the reality of home sales in Q1 2019 than home sales at the same time last year, or even at the end of 2018,” said Jamie Glenn, Co-Founder and COO at Knock. “It’s clear that we’re at an inflection point in the shift to more of a buyer’s market, and the Q2 Forecast provides insights into where and how buyers can capitalize on that.”Knock also notes the the gap between list prices and sale prices both for accurately-priced and overpriced listings has been widening. Paul Habibi, Economic Advisor to Knock and Lecturer of Real Estate at UCLA Anderson School of Management notes how this overpricing is impacting sales and bueyrs.“As the cooling of the market starts moving West, Phoenix is just one example of how the combined effects of a shift to a buyer’s market and continued overpricing will take their toll in the form of more savings for home buyers,” said Habibi. “Given the accuracy of the Q1 National Knock Deals Forecast, buyers who have been challenged by affordability can look to these predictions for insights into how a home purchase might be possible for them this Spring home buying season.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Home / Daily Dose / Looking Forward for Homebuyers Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Seth Welborn Previous: Housing and Mortgage Experts Talk Employment Next: Taking a Bite Out of Big Apple Foreclosures  Print This Postcenter_img April 5, 2019 1,200 Views Tagged with: Home Prices Homebuyers Knock Sales Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
