I think this FTSE 250 stock is worth considering in a market crash

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. The market crash is evident for all to see and where uncertainty ensues, opportunities arise.The majority of industries out there are affected by the Covid-19 containment measures. However retail, restaurants, pubs, clubs, entertainment venues, and such are worst hit. The government has ordered a lockdown and closure of all non-essential businesses. 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…These types of businesses come under that remit unfortunately. There are some companies that I would be cautious about in a ‘normal’ market, and some I would highlight as opportunities in this bear market. Marston’s Plc (LSE:MARS) is a company I see as an investment opportunity, although patience will be key. Short-term pain is to be expected. The market crash caused the Marston share price to fall by approximately 70%. In the longer term, I feel it could recover and be a viable option for your portfolio. Performance and Covid-19 updatePrior to the market crash, the brewery and pub group announced strong Christmas trading figures. It said that like-for-like sales, which exclude new venues, were up 4.5% on the same period a year ago. Food sales were weaker in its pubs though, and the first three weeks of December saw “subdued trading.” This was to be expected with the bad weather. Last week, Marston’s decided to announce a further trading update which addressed the impact of the pandemic. For the 24 weeks to 14 March 2020, its like-for-like pub sales were down 1% compared to last year. The beer arm of the company fell in line with expectations. The last couple of weeks do not show the significant dip in sales which it is expecting in the coming week and potentially months. Marston’s has not made a final decision on its interim dividend in May, but is currently leaning towards not paying it, which would save £20m. Marston’s also commenced a debt reduction programme, with a target to reduce debt by £200 million by 2023. I am always dubious about companies with large debt levels but somewhat appeased by its attempts to manage this. The numbersGenerally speaking, the business has grown at a healthy rate since 2014. Its revenue has increased by 9% year on year and profit is up five-fold. Share prices over the last year, prior to the crash, had increased by approximately 25%. Analysts expect profit and revenue to continue growing over the next two years, although this will be affected by current events. The Marston’s dividend per share has not increased in the past three years, which some may view as a deterrent. What I would do nowI often review restaurant and pub chains a bit more meticulously as there are so many factors affecting performance. The current closure of all such venues will impact performance so be prepared for a risk. I wrote about JD Wetherspoons a couple of days ago and came to a similar conclusion. There is opportunity here but expect short-term pain. The major risk factor here is the length of the lockdown and impact of coronavirus. If you have an appetite for risk and a strong stomach, this may be one for you to add to your portfolio.

The Aston Martin share price is up 80% since May. Read this before you buy

Aston Martin Lagonda (LSE: AML) has been one of the worst IPO investments I can remember. Since flotation, the shares have lost around 90% of their value. Many stocks are suffering as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, and we have no exception here. The Aston Martin share price is down 70% in 2020. That fall, though, is only a small portion of the full slump.Rescuer Lawrence Stroll has now stepped in and invested a lot of his own cash. And Tobias Moers has taken over as chief executive. Mr Moers joined from Mercedes-AMG, and he’s very much a heavyweight in the business.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 new management has made a big effort to streamline the company. The board has pulled back from grand early ambitions, and has set more modest sales targets. Expenditure has been cut, and jobs have sadly been lost. Hopefully, the result will be a stemming of the firm’s haemorrhaging of cash.Aston Martin share price risingThe market has reacted favourably, and the Aston Martin share price’s headlong slump has been arrested. Even better, since a low in May 2020, the shares are now up 80%. Investors don’t get many 80% profits in such a short timescale, so those who managed to get in at the bottom have done well.But what now? The big question is over Aston Martin’s long-term future. I think that’s as uncertain as ever.Fallen shares, worth only a small fraction of their historic levels, can be very enticing. It’s so easy to think along the lines of what goes down must come up, even if perhaps not consciously. When will it get back to what I paid for it? When will it recover from its fall? Tell me you haven’t wondered along those lines about the Aston Martin share price.My recovery ruleI like a good recovery opportunity as much as the next investor. But in my time I’ve just seen too many crashed stocks go all the way to the wall. So these days, I prefer to hold off until I see what there is at the end of the tunnel. Light’s not so good if it’s the light of an oncoming train.That means I want to see the risk receding and see actual evidence of profitability. I’ll miss the lowest price like that, for sure. But I don’t care about that, I care more about reducing my risk. For me, that takes the Aston Martin share price off the table right now.Burning cashThe company is not expected to make a profit any time soon. Forecasts suggest pre-tax losses of hundreds of millions this year and next. The firm had £359m in cash on its books at 30 June, after its big equity issue. But net debt stood at £751m. I can’t see Aston Martin making it to profit without needing to raise more cash first.Aston Martin has gone bust seven times in its history. I see a very real chance of an eighth, and I don’t want to be left holding any worthless shares if it happens. Image source: Getty Images.

Honor thy mothers and fathers

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA The Rev. Ann Fontaine says: Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Honor thy mothers and fathers Associate Rector Columbus, GA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID May 23, 2012 at 4:30 pm You note great opportunities for ministry by all ages of the church but too bad you once again “beat up” on the work of the past on internal issues – like inclusion – which in my opinion set the stage for what can be and are not the cause of decline. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY [Religion News Service — Clearwater, Fla.] A counseling clinic here that helps the elderly deal with depression has a waiting list of several months.Even affordable housing here is too costly for retirees whose investments tanked in 2008, or whose pensions were squandered by mindless employers and whose average Social Security check is around $1,100.Isolated in houses they cannot sell or in half-empty apartment buildings, many elderly wear a haunted look as they peer into their futures. They worry about outliving their funds, burdening their children, losing their independence. They try to stay busy, but find that sometimes even churches can’t offer them volunteer opportunities.The face of aging in America isn’t a pretty one. Not because the flesh is sagging, but because the nation that once built schools, malls and suburbs for baby boomer families when they were young has turned against its elderly.Opportunistic politicians seeking to preserve tax benefits for their wealthy patrons assault Medicare as a “socialistic” entitlement serving leeches. They take aim at Social Security as undeserved, even though recipients basically receive funds they themselves contributed over many years of working.Banks lure the elderly into credit card debt, then slap on interest rates edging toward 40 percent and then seize property. Banks and some states siphoned off funds intended to ease mortgage stress.If you take the time to listen, you will hear one horror story after another. People who once shared typical middle-class stories about careers and children’s exploits now share dread about losing what little they have left.One fear, church folks told me last weekend, is being “parked” — sequestered in whatever housing can be found, cut off from others, watching funds evaporate, knowing that their safety net is shredded.Wealth-chasing politicians might think retirement in America is one golf outing after another, punctuated by cocktail parties and shopping sprees. Maybe it is in their rarefied world. But in fact, retirement — when those 65 and older can even afford to stop working — is becoming a nightmare for many Americans.Episcopalians from four congregations met here to find ways forward after five decades of nationwide decline. They understood immediately that their future doesn’t lie in another round of surveys asking what they wanted — that kind of inward-looking obsession has eviscerated churches. Rather, they need to look outward, to see the needs around them, and to ask what God wanted them to do about those needs.When they named the needs that lie outside their doors in this aging area of Southwest Florida, they listed deteriorating health care, financial dread, isolation, loneliness, depression, inactivity, feeling ignored and aimlessness.They will spend the next several months imagining and preparing responses to those needs. It’s a risky venture. Looking outward is never easy for church communities, especially when many of their constituents are “snowbirds” who come for a few months to escape the winter cold, not to address problems of the year-round population.Addressing emerging needs leads inevitably to change in religious systems that they have wanted to be stable and reassuring. I have been around churches long enough to recognize that fear of change is a powerful motivator.But they got off to a good start, and they did so by deciding up front to collaborate, not to preserve “walls and borders,” as one person put it. The real face of aging looks to them like a call to ministry.— Tom Ehrich is a writer, church consultant and Episcopal priest based in New York.

For once I find myself agreeing with the Reverend Ehrich; mainly because he hasn’t resorted to divisive mantras about conservatives, et al, and because he is telling absolute facts. We need more affordable housing, built into quality park-like settings for our communities. Every diocese should make this a priority by forming a housing corporation and obtaining or building decent, quality, low-rent apartments and townhouses with federal funds that are available for the taking.I’ve got to breathe deep now – I can’t believe that I agree with Reverend Ehrich.

Harlem, N.Y., anti-racist fighter runs progressive election campaign

first_imgChristina “Stina” Gonzalez is a 27-year-old Latina and a fierce fighter against police brutality in New York City. Her activism began at Occupy Wall Street in the fall of 2011 and has not stopped since. Gonzalez, and her partner Matthew Swaye, had their faces plastered on posters. The posters, put up by the New York Police Department’s 30th precinct, warned police officers to “be aware that the above subjects are known professional agitators.” The posters were distributed to the police stations across the city in 2012, highlighting that Gonzalez was video recording the NYPD’s “routine” activity of “stopping and frisking” youth of color. The poster also contained their home address.Videos of Gonzalez confronting the NYPD can be seen across the Internet. In the process of filming the police, she has been arrested 11 times, with six cases dropped, and five still pending.In 2012, she made headlines when she appeared before Judge John H. Wilson, who sits on the bench in Brooklyn. He wrote an anti-immigrant picture book called “Hot House Flowers.” The text was designed to teach children to hate undocumented workers. When Gonzalez appeared in his courtroom, she loudly called him a “racist white pig.” When she refused to apologize, she was sentenced to 10 days on Riker’s Island.When reflecting on her time in jail, she recalled to WW: “Beautiful womyn that don’t deserve to be there, fill the beds of Riker’s island.” She also said: “I was able to stop a misogynist fascist from terrorizing the womyn in my dorm for at least one week. That was worth it!”A revolutionary campaignNow Christina Gonzalez is running for City Council. In her district of Morningside Heights in Harlem, she is running against Mark Levine. Endorsed by the gentrifying realty companies and the big money, Levine is a Zionist Democrat. Gonzalez is the only other candidate on the ballot. She is running on the Green Party ticket. Levine refused to attend the debate called by the League of Women Voters.Gonzalez’s campaign includes a call to end police brutality and “stop and frisk.” She calls for the legalization of marijuana and an end to the “war on drugs.” She says she is for “redesigning schools to be safe spaces where children can feel free to express their creativity and curiosity. I hope to create legislation that would tax Wall Street, so that our children can have music, yoga, self defense, and second language classes.”She went on to tell WW: “I would like to replace cops with mediators, yoga instructors, artists, self-defense trainers, comedians, historians, documentarians, etc. We need more cultural arts and recreation centers.”Christina Gonzalez supports raising the minimum wage for all workers and plans to speak at the upcoming People’s Power Assembly rally on Oct. 24 at Herald Square. She thinks rent should never be more than 30 percent of working people’s income, as housing is a ­human right.A crew of supporters have been spending their weekends pounding the pavement on her behalf. The supporters include students at Columbia University, longtime Harlem residents, community activists and organizers with the NYC chapters of “Fight Imperialism — Stand Together” (FIST) and Workers World Party.Many revolutionary and progressive forces are happy to join Gonzalez’s campaign as she fights against mass incarceration, police terror, low wages and the other daily horrors of U.S. capitalism.

Here’s what they had to say.Ian Hunt, senior finance majorIan Hunt, Senior, Finance MajorHow do you transition from cold weather clothes to warmer weather clothes in the spring?“Historically, I have not been the biggest fan of the transition from cooler to warmer weather. Not because I don’t like switching up my style, but because this weather change can also be a bit sentimental for me; it brings about the inevitable farewell to winter sports.  I develop an attachment to my winter clothes because they remind me of two things I love: mountains and snowboarding.”What is your favorite thing to wear in the warm spring weather?“Board-shorts, tanks, and Chacos claim about 60 percent of my wearable spring clothing hours.”How would you describe your spring style?“Funky fresh florals.”Kate Bould, senior political science majorKate Bould, Senior, Political Science MajorHow do you transition from cold weather clothes to warmer weather clothes in the spring?“Texas weather makes it a little difficult to actually transition, but I generally just try to pull in my lighter jackets, shorts and sandals. I still wear a lot of my shorter winter boots and shoes in the spring and just pair it with dresses and shorts without tights. I try not to wear as much black because I just don’t like the way black looks in the spring; it feels too heavy. I keep my comfy thermals as layering pieces or pullovers in the spring.”What is your favorite thing to wear in the warm spring weather?“Lately, it’s super lightweight blazers and sleeveless waistcoats.”How would you describe your spring style?“I love to stick to whites, beiges, blush pinks, pale blue, light grey. I’m not usually your biggest fan of super femme trends, so I just try to lighten my color palette a little bit. I really like more androgynous and structured pieces in the spring; because it has to be lightweight per the weather, it naturally adds a little bit of a feminine look to it.”Khang Nguyen, senior fashion merchandising majorKhang Nguyen, Senior, Fashion Merchandising MajorHow do you transition from cold weather clothes to warmer weather clothes in the spring?“When the winter ends and the weather starting to warm up, I prefer to transition my style gradually. I introduce shorts as part of my every day looks and pair it with a light cardigan, but keeping everything in dark tones of color.”What is your favorite thing to wear in the warm spring weather?“I love wearing short shorts. They make me feel liberated.”How would you describe your spring style?“My spring and summer style is quite similar: lots of short shorts, sheer shirts and boat neck t-shirts.”Trent Allsup, senior economics majorTrent Allsup, Senior, Economics MajorHow do you transition from cold weather clothes to warmer weather clothes in the spring?“I enjoy the transition from cold to warm clothes in the spring because I enjoy the warm weather much more.”What is your favorite thing to wear in the warm spring weather?“My favorite thing to wear in the spring is just t-shirt and shorts, simple and comfortable.”How would you describe your spring style?“I would describe my ‘style’ as if I like it, I will wear it. I don’t know exactly how to describe it more than that.”Annalise Kelly, first-year biology majorAnnalise Kelly, Freshman, Biology MajorHow do you transition from cold weather clothes to warmer weather clothes in the spring?“I love the transition from cold weather clothes to spring clothes. Spring is my absolute favorite time of the year!”What is your favorite thing to wear in the warm spring weather?“My favorite thing to wear in the warm spring weather is dresses and rompers because it is an easy, cute look that does not require a lot of styling.”How would you describe your spring style?“I would describe my spring style as bright and flowy.”Tori Sidell, junior graphic design majorTori Sidell, Junior, Graphic Design MajorHow do you transition from cold weather clothes to warmer weather clothes in the spring?“It is all about balance. If I am in a transitional season, I mix the rich tones and varying textures (suede booties and the color merlot, for example) with a spring accent (like white washed, destroyed boyfriend jeans or a lightweight crop top). I tend to stick with a neutral color palette throughout the year, but my accent colors vary based on the season. I will mix a chunky knit and wear it over a flowy, light-colored dress and maybe pair it with some chestnut booties to meld the seasons of winter and summer.”What is your favorite thing to wear in the warm spring weather?“I love Brandy Melville’s little tank tops paired with my distressed light wash skinny jeans and chucks.”How would you describe your spring style?“I would describe my spring style as the love child of ’70s bohemia and a ’90s tomboy.” Here, there and back again Hannah Kirkpatrickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hannah-kirkpatrick/ Hannah Kirkpatrickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hannah-kirkpatrick/ Facebookcenter_img Hannah Kirkpatrickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hannah-kirkpatrick/ Previous articleFit Worth Corporate Challenge encourages fitness in the communityNext articleRainn Wilson talks about Life’s Big Questions Hannah Kirkpatrick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter ReddIt Tori Sidell Facebook Hannah Kirkpatrick ReddIt TCU social work majors go into the field to help support Fort Worth’s homeless Linkedin Fort Worth’s first community fridge program helps serve vulnerable neighborhoods last_img read more
