  • With insider buying recently, would I buy these UK shares?

    first_img 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Stuart Blair | Tuesday, 18th August, 2020 | More on: BA WINE With insider buying recently, would I buy these UK shares? Stuart Blair owns shares in BAE Systems. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img When an insider buys shares of a company, this is often a very bullish signal that indicates the stock could grow further. This is because insiders often have unique insights into their own company and can therefore determine whether the stock is undervalued. As Peter Lynch once stated: “Insiders might sell their shares for any number of reasons, but they buy them for only one: they think the price will rise”. These two UK shares are recent examples of where insiders have bought shares. As a result, should investors follow their lead, or are there better options out there?A defence specialistOne FTSE 100 company with recent insider buying is BAE Systems (LSE: BA). In this case, the Chairman Roger Carr recently bought £200,000 of the stock at 493p per share. While the share price has risen to around 535p since, the Chairman of a company buying such a significant amount of stock is clearly a very bullish sign, even if it had not risen.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…But this is not the sole reason why I would invest in this UK share. For example, the recent half-year trading update was very positive, and the firm stated that it expects a “good second half to the year”. In fact, operating profits were £808m, which was only a decline of 10% from the year before. Sales also reached £9.9bn, and this was a 4% rise on the year. These results demonstrate how BAE has managed to cope well during the pandemic.It also announced an interim dividend of 9.4p, which will be payable in November “assuming that there are no major additional or unforeseen pandemic-related disruptions”. With a yield of over 4%, this firmly cements BAE as one of my favourite UK shares. I’d buy without any hesitation today.An up and coming UK shareA winner from the pandemic has been the online wine retailer Naked Wines (LSE: WINE). In fact, the firm has managed to deliver sales growth of around 76% for the first four months of its trading year, and there was 115% growth in the number of new customers.Its share price has been a major beneficiary of the demand, with it rising by 107% since January. But this has not deterred COO Nicholas Devlin from buying more. In fact, he recently bought £20,000 worth of stock at 456p each. This demonstrates hope that the share price will continue to rise, as the UK share continues to benefit from increased demand.In this case, I’m less convinced. While Naked Wines is a very strong business, the share price has already grown significantly. Consequently, I believe upside is limited because I can’t see demand remaining this strong for long. I’m therefore not following Devlin into buying this UK share, and believe there are better opportunities on the market. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

  • The Gym Group’s share price is still falling. Here’s what I’d do now

    first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Edward Sheldon, CFA | Thursday, 5th November, 2020 | More on: GYM The Gym Group’s share price is still falling. Here’s what I’d do now The last time I covered The Gym Group (LSE: GYM) shares on 7 July, I said they were a “risky play.” I was concerned that, with Covid-19 lingering, people may steer clear of gyms for a while. I added that there were much better stocks to buy.That call looks pretty good right now. Since my article, The Gym Group’s share price has dropped from 153p to 130p – a decline of 15%. Over that period, plenty of other small-cap stocks have soared.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…Here, I’m going to take another look at the investment case for The Gym Group. Is the stock a recovery play or should it be avoided?The Gym Group: interim resultsLet’s start with the group’s interim results. These were, understandably, pretty poor. For the six months ended 30 June, revenue decreased 50% to £37.3m. Meanwhile, adjusted earnings per share came in at -14.9p, compared to 4p reported a year earlier. Non-property net debt was £29m, which is high when you consider that adjusted EBITDA was just £1.7m.One interesting takeaway from the results was that membership numbers have fallen significantly this year, as I predicted. In late February, the group had nearly 900,000 members. However, by 30 June, this had fallen to 698,000. And by 25 July, the number of memberships had fallen further, to 658,000. This trend doesn’t look good.Outlook: huge challengesLooking ahead, I think The Gym Group is going to continue to struggle in the near term. There are a few reasons why. Firstly, Covid-19 lockdowns are back. As of today, gyms across the country have been forced to close. This is devastating news for companies such as The Gym Group. It means revenues and cash flows are going to take another big hit. We’ve been told the lockdown will only last a month. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see it extended, which could place further pressure on gym operators.Secondly, when gyms can reopen again, I think people will be slow to return. While Covid-19 is hanging around, I believe a lot of people will stick to exercising at home, jogging, or cycling. I used to be an avid gym-goer before the coronavirus, but I’ve no intention of stepping foot inside a gym any time soon.Third, I expect to see lower levels of disposable income among those aged 20-40 – the keenest users of gyms – in the short term, due to Covid-19. This could limit membership growth.Bearish dataDigging into the data on The Gym Group shares, there are a few things that concern me. One is the lack of substantial insider buying. In the last six months, only one insider has purchased GYM shares. That was chair Penny Hughes, who has purchased stock twice. But her purchases were absolutely tiny. The last purchase was worth less than £4,000.Meanwhile, founder John Treharne has been offloading stock. This suggests insiders aren’t confident about the future.Another is that GYM has an Altman Z2 score (this a measure of financial strength) of just 0.17, according to Stockopedia. This indicates there’s a serious risk of financial distress within the next two years.The Gym Group’s share price could keep fallingPutting this all together, I’d continue to avoid The Gym Group shares for now.

  • David Strettle scores another quality try for Clermont in Exeter romp

    first_imgTuesday Dec 22, 2015 David Strettle scores another quality try for Clermont in Exeter romp David Strettle scored another top quality try for new club Clermont as they romped to a 42-10 win over Exeter Chiefs at the Stade Marcel Michelin. The French side bounced back after a shock defeat the week previously. Strettle streaked through for this excellent try early on. Former England winger Strettle appears to be in the form of his career. As with what happened when Nick Abendanon moved to Clermont, Strettle has won over the local fans with some excellent performances of late, including another great try this past weekend.Capped in 2007 but only having played 14 Tests since, Strettle was picked for England’s Rugby World Cup training squad but instead chose to continue with his move to France. “The chance to play in a home World Cup was a big temptation but I had made my commitment to a new club, a new way of life, and that was where my responsibility lay,” Strettle told the Telegraph recently.“Rugby is the lifeblood of this place, of the whole Auvergne region. I loved Saracens and even though we had some great times at Allianz Park, no one could call it a coliseum. The Stade Marcel-Michelin is a bear-pit. It’s brilliant to run out in front of almost 20,000 every home game. The mood of the whole town is shaped by how ASM [Clermont] do.”Strettle not only missed out on playing at the World Cup, but will also be unavailable to be reaquainted with former Saracens colleagues Steve Borthwick and Paul Gustard.The pair have been chosen as support staff for new England coach Eddie Jones, however the head coach has said that he will likely uphold the RFU’s policy of not picking players based outside of England.“I knew the realities of coming here although I can’t lie to you and say that it would not have been amazing to have had any chance of working with Gussy [Gustard] and Steve Borthwick in an England environment.”As Jones is unlikely to budge, for now Strettle’s focus is solely on success with Clermont, who have had disappointments in Europe in recent times.“Europe is a huge focus for the club. They’ve lost in the final twice in the last three years (to Toulon) and want to get that silverware.”View Strettle’s well taken try below, and highlights of the match on page twoADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

  • Harvest Forecast: Milder Temperatures Ahead

    first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Harvest Forecast: Milder Temperatures Ahead Harvest Forecast: Milder Temperatures Ahead Dry weather will be the main feature of the forecast for the next week or so, that according to HAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin. His harvest weather forecast is presented by First Farmers Bank & Trust, proud to support Indiana farmers, and Kokomo Grain.Martin says the next chance of rain comes next Thursday or Friday. The issue right now- cooler temperatures.“Temperatures are going to be slowly climbing higher through the weekend and into the first part of next week,” said Martin. “I hesitate to say that we’re going to be above normal until maybe mid week next week.”Martin expects varying degrees of sunshine over the next few days. The warmer temperatures coming later this week combined with the cold surface is a recipe for cloud development.“The more melt we see of the snow and the milder these temperatures get, the less cloud cover we will see,” he said. “If you’re needing sunshine to get some snow off of corn or beans, it’s going to be a little bit of a slow go.”Martin is expecting a quarter of an inch of rain next week over the majority of the state.“That front brings in colder air behind it then we see another chance of moisture as we go into the extended forecast window,” he said.Martin also expects nearly an inch of rain on Thanksgiving.The Harvest Weather Forecast is also brought to you by Seed Genetics Direct: a family-owned company meeting the corn, wheat, soybean, alfalfa, and herbicide needs of Corn Belt farmers.
