Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The FTSE 250 has performed a little better than the FTSE 100 during the stock market crash, down 18% compared to 23%. The mid-cap index dipped further during the early days of the Covid-19 crisis. But it’s bounced back a little more strongly. So the smaller index has been the more volatile — no surprise there. What bargain buys are there? Here are two FTSE 250 stocks I’d buy to weather any further storms.Shares in AJ Bell (LSE: AJB) crashed as hard as the FTSE 250 in March. But they’ve come storming back for one of the better 2020 recoveries. The AJ Bell share price is down just 4% year-to-date. And looking at Thursday’s year-end trading update shows why. It makes it look like there’s been no stock market crash at all.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 investment platform provider saw customer numbers grow by 27% in the year, and total assets under administration climbed 8% to £56.5bn. The growth is mostly due to platform customers, up 29% to 281,000. Of those, the ranks of advised customers rose 11% to 109,000. Underlying net inflows increased 28% to £4.1bn.A top IPO investmentAJ Bell seems to be benefiting from the increased number of people investing in shares since the stock market crash hit us. But I think there’s also a boost from growth in business following the firm’s IPO. Since entering the FTSE 250 in December 2018 with an entry price of 160p, the shares have more than doubled. I’m usually bearish on flotations, which so often flop, but this is one of those rare successes.AJ Bell shares are still on a bit of a growth valuation. But when I add the resilience and relative safety to the equation, the result is a stock I’d buy for the long term.Stock market crash painMoneysupermarket.com (LSE: MONY) shareholders haven’t had such a good year. Like AJ Bell, the Moneysupermarket share price did recover quite quickly from its slump in the early stock market crash days. But it’s fallen back again in recent months. On a year-to-date drop of 23%, it’s fallen below the FTSE 250.An update Thursday showed why, with revenue down 16% in the third quarter and down 11% in the nine months to 30 September. The firm’s markets have suffered during the pandemic. That’s especially clear from its money division, which faces a 40% drop in Q3 revenue. Insurance, home services and other businesses all declined too.I’m not too surprised, with lending criteria being tightened as banks focus on cash preservation. The near halt to the home buying market won’t have helped. And in energy services, the availability of savings diminished and switching “reduced substantially.”FTSE 250 bargain?For the medium-term future, Moneysupermarket reckons its markets are likely to remain tough. I agree, especially if the second Covid wave goes on for months, and if we really do see a second phase to the stock market crash. But Moneysupermarket enjoys a strong balance sheet, with net cash of £5m at 30 September (after paying the interim dividend).I think Moneysupermarket will make it through to better times just fine. And while the share price is down, I see it as an attractive FTSE 250 recovery stock. I’d buy now at what I see as a tempting valuation.

Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares UK share prices continue to struggle to gain traction following last spring’s relief rally. The latest rally at the start of 2021 ran out of steam as fresh fears over the Covid-19 battle surfaced.There’s some logic behind why broader UK share indices are struggling. The British economy’s dependence on a strong services sector means that it’s being hit particularly cruelly by the Covid-19 crisis. Signs of trade disruption following withdrawal from the European Union are also jangling nerves over corporate profits.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…Why UK shares are still great buysThis doesn’t explain why an enormous number of London-listed stocks remain unloved, however. I have a choice to invest in UK shares with non-cyclical operations like utilities, defence contractors and healthcare specialists, for example. I can also splash the cash on companies that will benefit from a prolonged economic downturn. Counter-cyclical stocks like these include fast food firms, insolvency practitioners and discount retailers.I can also buy UK shares with little or no exposure to the beleaguered British economy. The FTSE 100 alone is packed with firms that generate all or most of their profits on foreign shores. A large number of Footsie firms also report in currencies other than sterling. This allows them to benefit from currency movements when the pound falls.3 top stocks on my ISA wishlistI myself have continued buying UK shares for my Stocks and Shares ISA despite the threat of a prolonged downturn. And I’m considering buying the following stocks in February too.I don’t think they’re just great buys for the here and now though. I’d buy them in the hope of making profits all the way through to 2030.I think fast-moving consumer goods (or FMCG) manufacturers like PZ Cussons are perfect picks for times like these. Sales of food and personal care products remain stable during economic upturns and this UK share also has considerable emerging market exposure to drive future profits. It does have extensive operations in Nigeria, however, and this leaves it at the mercy of falling oil prices to some extent.Packing manufacturer Mondi’s huge exposure to the FMCG sector provides it with exceptional earnings resilience too. This is even though the FTSE 100 firm could face some headwinds in the form of weakness in broader consumer spending. Soaring e-commerce volumes bode well for boxmakers like this as well, now and over the next 10 years.I see GlaxoSmithKline as another brilliant buy for the next decade at least. Yes, medicine makers like this always carry risk as problems with drugs development can cost a fortune in unexpected costs and lost revenues. But I think the essential nature of its products still makes this UK share a top buy for these uncertain times. And soaring healthcare investment in developing regions could supercharge profits at this FTSE 100 stock over the longer term. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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.

Why is the Greatland Gold (GGP) share price crashing this year?

first_img Instead I’d much rather invest in this… Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The rising GGP share priceGreatland Gold is an early-stage exploration business with various projects across Western Australia. And as the name suggests, it primarily focuses on extracting gold from ground. Last year’s explosive performance was mainly caused by a series of positive results surrounding its Havieron project.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…This project commenced back in 2018. And looking at the latest set of drilling results could contain a deposit of 4.2 mega-ounces of gold and equivalents. That’s around £4.45bn worth of material to dig up based on today’s prices. Needless to say, it’s a massive opportunity for the business. So, seeing the GGP share price surge last year is not that surprising to me.Given the potential growth opportunity this project presents, why is the stock now falling? Since the start of 2021, the price of gold has been declining. As a result, the estimated value of Havieron has consequently suffered, leading to a sell-off by investors. However, governments worldwide have begun issuing stimulus packages to accelerate the Covid-19 recovery of their economies. As a consequence, inflation is now expected to rise. But gold is often used as a hedging tool against the devaluation of money, so I think its price has the potential to start climbing again, taking the value of Havieron with it.There are some considerable risksThe GGP share price clearly reflects the tremendous progress made in 2020. And based on a recent operational report, the early-stage development process of Havieron has begun. But while this is a step in the right direction, the site may take up to three years before commercial production can commence.As it stands, Greatland Gold does not have any active mining operations in its portfolio. In other words, it currently has no source of revenue and thus is dependent on raising outside funding to keep the lights on.At the end of 2020, the firm had around £5.9m cash on its balance sheet, providing some notable liquidity. But developing a fully operational mining site is an expensive endeavour. And so, to raise enough capital for Havieron, it sold a 70% royalty claim to Newcrest Mining. Consequently, its potential earnings from the project have been significantly limited.The bottom lineEstablishing large royalty partnerships is not uncommon among young mining companies. And a 30% claim still represents a £1.34bn potential return.But as it stands, I think it’s too soon to invest in this business. A lot of things can go wrong in three years. And given that the GGP share price currently places a valuation of around £790m on a pre-revenue business with non-producing core assets, the level of investor expectations is exceptionally high. Therefore I won’t be adding this stock to my portfolio today. The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Lifeimi Mafi cited for two high tackles & Brian O’Driscoll try

first_imgMonday Oct 4, 2010 Lifeimi Mafi cited for two high tackles & Brian O’Driscoll try Leinster beat Munster 13-9 in their Magners League derby match at a packed Aviva Stadium on Saturday night. Brian ODriscoll scored the winning try for Leinster, while Munster center Lefeimi Mafi made two bad high tackles, for which he has now been cited. Both tackles and the try are included here. The atmosphere at the new Lansdowne Road venue was superb as a passionate crowd braved the heavy rain to cheer on their sides. In the end it was the Leinster team who came out trumps thanks to BOD going over with ten minutes left in the game. His opposing center, Munsters Mafi, has been cited for two offences. Firstly he made a terrible tackle on Gordon Darcy midway through the opening half. Darcy lay prone on the ground for quite some time, but managed to play on after a few minutes of treatment. Mafi has been cited under law 10.4(a) for allegedly punching or striking. It wasnt picked up by the ref or his assistants but later in the game he made a similar tackle on Leinster fullback Rob Kearney, resulting in a yellow card. He has been cited under law 10.4(e) for that one, for an alleged dangerous tackle. Hewill attened at hearing with a Irish Rugby Football Union disciplinary panel which will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, in Belfast at 16:00. He was cited by an independent citing commissioner who there at the ground. Hugh Logan and Stephen Hilditch will chair the hearing. On a more positive note, ODriscolls try is included here as well, after the Mafi tackles.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

DSDHA has worked in collaboration with Derwent London to deliver a discreet yet alluring brick corner building in Fitzrovia, central London, that brings delight to its surroundings while engaging in an active dialogue with the wider context of the city.Save this picture!© Christopher RudquistCorner House strives to introduce a new type of contemporary beauty, one which is less ostentatious yet captivating, building on the qualities of its location to provide a highly sustainable solution that embodies high quality design and craftsmanship.Save this picture!© Luca MiserocchiWhile at an urban level it celebrates the ordinary street corner, Corner House inverts this typology (typically presenting a more articulated treatment of the façade at the ground level) and places two jewel like crystalline pavilions on the rooftop, opening up a series of unexpected views onto Londonʼs variegated and ever changing roofscape.Save this picture!AxonometricCorner House provides a mix of private and affordable homes, along with a commercial space on the ground floor. Over its six-storeys the building comprises 11 apartments, nine private and two affordable, all of which comprise double or triple aspect rooms with exceptional levels of daylighting.Save this picture!© Helene BinetThe original site comprised three distinct buildings, which were subsequently replaced by a large modern scheme. Corner House attempts to bring back the character of the original structures, consolidating their identities into a single block that reflects the urban hierarchy of the surrounding streets – the grander Charlotte Street and quieter Tottenham Street, and the more utilitarian identity of Tottenham Mews.Save this picture!© Christopher RudquistThe entrances to Corner House are configured to respond to the local context; the commercial unit faces the noisy thoroughfare of Charlotte Street with its commercial frontages; the apartments have entrances on the quieter street and mews.Save this picture!© Luca MiserocchiThe pavilions on the roof offer a hidden terrain to the project that only becomes apparent upon enquiry, occupying as they do the Rights Of Light envelope established by neighbouring buildings. Corner House does not disrupt the consistent morphology of the solid brick facades that characterise the neighbourhood – however the shifting planes of its slightly angled windows on the uppermost floor suggest something unexpected.Save this picture!© Luca MiserocchiDrone photography, satellite views and new forms of mapping technologies have changed the way we understand and navigate the urban landscape. We are now accustomed to visualise the latter mainly from above, with the consequence that the roof has become a relevant fifth elevation. The articulated geometry of Corner House facade and pavilions reflects this perspectival shift, it multiplies focal points and dissolves traditional linear perspective therefore suggesting an alternative dimension from which to appreciate the building and its surrounding views. Technically challenging yet appearing disarmingly simple, they are in an effortless dialogue with other roof structures scattered on the horizon nearby.Save this picture!© Helene BinetUnlike most new projects that use brickwork as a non-structural cladding, here the brickwork for the main body of the building is self-supporting, bearing its own substantial weight, thereby relieving loading on the superstructure, and minimising amount of the concrete used on the project and the energy embodied in its production. What could have become a monolithic façade is refined by the use of lime mortar, to eliminate expansion joints, and bespoke metal work balustrades.Save this picture!© Helene BinetDSDHAʼs analysis of Charlotte Streetʼs Conservation Area informed the design and ensured a contextual response. The design seeks to restore some key local features of typical Fitzrovian terraces, such as an emphasis on verticality where strong horizon lines mark a tripartite division of plinth-body- roof, masonry construction with punched apertures and a high ratio of wall to window.Save this picture!© Christopher RudquistThe stepped reveals to the facades were the result of extended research and testing to capture the craftsmanship of masonry construction yet it is treated with plasticity to achieve a dramatic effect. Bespoke lintels help span the bays which relate proportionally one to another, reflecting the geometric derivations of most of Fitzroviaʼs architecture. As a result each floor has a slightly different relationship between the sill and the internal floor levels, making the building appear less relentlessly stacked and subtly differentiated.Save this picture!© Christopher RudquistCorner House is part of a wider regeneration plan to improve and restore the character of Fitzrovia ahead of the arrival of Crossrail to Tottenham Court Road in 2018. With over 36% of its property portfolio located in Fitzrovia, Derwent London have a good relationship with its community and working closely with London Borough of Camden they have been able to redevelop this part of central London in a holistic way. Corner House is within a 500m radius of Suffolk House, a former warehouse building that DSDHA converted and extended into affordable residential accommodation for Derwent London in 2014. The attic floor sits lightly on the existing building and its triangulated roofscape shares a formal language with the pavilion roofscape of Corner House.Save this picture!© Christopher RudquistTo the west of Corner House DSDHA is leading the rejuvenation of the public realm around Tottenham Court Road, a commission by the London Borough of Camden which is just starting on site. DSDHA have devised a highly sustainable transport scheme and designed new ʻpocketʼ parks, which punctuate the individual journeys through the area, lowering the speed at which one engages with this unique part of the city.Save this picture!© Christopher RudquistProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Hidden History of St. Petersburg’s Leningrad-Era Avant-Garde ArchitectureArticlesBarn Rijswijk / Workshop architectenSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Margaret Pyke Centre, 73 Charlotte St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 4PL, UKLocation to be used only as a reference.

Casa Georgina, completed in the fall of 2020, is composed of two apartment units built into the steep slope of the Sierra de Catorce mountains in the northern Mexican state of San Luis Potosí. The project sits within a walled garden that contains an existing house and builds upon a series of stone ruins, engaging them through a play of addition and subtraction. Three stepped walls organize the design scheme: wall one contains exterior circulation; wall two frames the interior living spaces; and wall three divides the project from the neighboring property.

In addition to height and sight-line restrictions, building mandates specify that all exterior walls be constructed with local stone, through a traditional building technique that is representative of the town. In tandem with the schematic development of the project, these building regulations initiated immediate design considerations at the scale of the detail.

But we wanted to use digital media in an unconventional way for the sector, telling a story that would engage the audience and make them feel they would want to find out more and participate.”  78 total views,  1 views today Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Investors in People

He would do to it what venture capitalists do: they snap up struggling firms for a snip, plump them up, streamline, rationalise, asset strip and, oh yes, sack, before selling on for a very tidy profit a few months later. There was no shortage of voices accusing venture capitalists of being unaccountable, invisible Svengalis, a jaundiced symptom of get-rich-quick spivvery – the very nemesis of good HR practice.Venture capitalists – like their fellow deal-makers in mergers and acquisitions – are simply not seen as being very interested in people. “The financial, legal, and accountancy mafia concentrate on doing the deal – that is par for the course,” says Simon Barrow, chairman of management and recruitment consultancy People in Business. “They do have to check how good the people are they are backing, therefore they ought to be interested in first-class HR planning and the ability to work in a team and so on. “But the truth is that time pressure gets in the way of HR best practice, so I am not really sure how much they do. I don’t think they are terribly interested. You get paid for doing deals, the same as insurance.”Oddly enough, the Rover crisis came at a time when the venture capital industry is going to great lengths to emphasise its positive influence on employment. After all, venture capital is responsible for Madame Tussaud’s, IPC magazines, Tetley Tea, Sock Shop, Dunlop Slazenger, National Express, William Hill, Odeon Cinemas, United Biscuits, Goldsmiths, Umbro and Hozelock. Even the future has been mortgaged to VC: Dolly the Sheep creators PPL Therapeutics is owned by Apax Partners.Some rather tendentious statistics produced by trade body the British Venture Capital Association make the point 50 per cent of venture capital finance is for expansion – £1bn was invested in high technology companies last year. Between 1994 and 1998, venture-backed companies increased their staff levels three times faster than that of FTSE 100 companies. The average number of people employed in VC-backed companies rose by 24 per cent against a national growth rate of 1.3 per cent; sales rose by 40 per cent, profits by 24 per cent, exports by 44 per cent and investment by 34 per cent. Altogether, Britain’s venture capital fraternity (the UK accounts for 49 per cent of the total European investment) invested some £7.8bn in 1,300 companies.“Asset-stripping is really a phrase from the 1970s”, says David Thorp, chairman of the BVCA and managing director of Friends, Ivory and Syme Private Equity. “The ambitious fast-growth firms we have interests in do not really have assets to strip, apart from people, and that would be up to the company’s management, not to us.”While venture capital situations vary widely (the VC firm may have a minority stake on a management buy-out or majority control) venture capitalists are rarely involved in turnaround expeditions, he says. “Rescues happen in the middle of a recession. About one in a hundred are about turnaround at the moment.”So how detailed an interest do they take in people matters? According to Patrick Dunne, director at the largest venture capital house 3i, the composition of the board is the top priority. “The key thing for us is to get the right board in place. We spend a lot of time getting the right CEO. We do need to be convinced of the ability of the top team to be strong on the people issues. If they are not good at leading and motivating a team, that is crucial to the success of the venture.”Dunne says it is rare for HR directors to be on the main board of the companies the venture capitalists are looking at – just below board level is common. But he maintains, “The relationship between the CEO and the HR director tends to be vital. When you look at how a business is doing, if a company is not managing its team well it is not long before you see problems in the marketplace.”In assessing the pedigree of a board, Dunne says on-site visits are useful. “What you hear and see is more important than what you read.” Equally, he says VCs spend a lot of time getting different perspectives of a management team – in the case of 3i drawing on the expertise of some 600 independent directors, made up of former chief executives, chairmen and finance directors.Alasdair Warren, managing director of nCoTec, a specialist communications enabling technology venture capital firm, formed by a team of former investment bankers from Saloman Smith Barney, goes even further. He says in new economy start-ups “you are basically investing in people”.He adds, “There is a big difference in the old economy where you are realising the value of assets by efficiencies and so on. In start-ups, there is so much rapidly changing technology that you are investing in the people not the technology. It is the firms with the best people that win.”Warren agrees that it is the senior positions that venture capitalists worry about, the CEO and CFO. “Typically, ideas are generated by people with a technological background whereas it is the commercialisation of the technology that is the crucial judgement.” Because of the speed of movement, nCoTec has a strategic alliance with executive search firm, Skillcapital, which has a database of potential candidates already identified for new roles. But on the staffing side of investing in start-ups, Warren says there are definite negative consequences attached to having a firm with more than 20 people. “If it [the venture] becomes dependent on people, you have to question their ability to recruit. People can push the business plan back six months and it becomes a concern.”Aside from recruitment, at these senior levels, remuneration and incentives are the main HR area that venture capital companies have to deal with.The bulk of the financial side is straight equity or options (thanks to changes in the last two budgets), but people who move into VC-backed jobs also typically insist on a base salary premium of 25 per cent in order to take on the risk of moving. “If we put a lot of effort into finding people, we do not want them to go,” says Dunne. “The offer of options is an excellent way of aligning people to encourage growth in the value of the business. It is often logistically very difficult to put all-employee share ownership schemes in place, and that is where HR input can be crucial.”But yet, just as the venture capitalists claim to be oiling the wheels of the future economy, one of the interesting facts of the Rover crisis was that venture capital is investing in the old economy with new relish. Because of the fashionable obsession with high technology stocks, the current place to look for good deals is by trawling the chemical, engineering and retail sectors.As Guy Hands, finance principal at Nomura, is on record as saying, “Without private equity and people like Jon Moulton focusing on old economy businesses, we are going to become a country full of unemployed people sitting at home playing computer games on the Internet.”last_img read more

1°C warming increases spatial competition frequency and complexity in Antarctic marine macrofauna

first_imgEnvironmental conditions of the Southern Ocean around Antarctica have varied little for >5 million years but are now changing. Here we investigated how warming affects competition for space. Little considered in the polar regions, this is a critical component of biodiversity response. Change in competition in response to environment forcing might be detectable earlier than individual species presence/absence or performance measures (e.g. growth). Examination of fauna on artificial substrata in Antarctica’s shallows at ambient or warmed temperature found that, mid-century predicted 1°C warming (throughout the year or just summer-only), increased the probability of individuals encountering spatial competition, as well as density and complexity of such interactions. 2°C, late century predicted warming, increased variance in the probability and density of competition, but overall, competition did not significantly differ from ambient (control) levels. In summary only 1°C warming increased probability, density and complexity of spatial competition, which seems to be summer-only driven.last_img read more
