The ASOS share price soars 10%! Can this top growth stock still make investors rich?

first_img Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Paul Summers Image sources: Getty Images. Shares in online clothing giant ASOS (LSE: ASC) jumped 10% early this morning on news that recent trading has been far better than investors had been predicting. When you consider how brutal 2020 has been for most retailers, that’s really quite something. Is there still time for new investors to load up on this one-time penny stock and make money? Here’s my take. 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…ASOS: beating expectationsDespite being confined to their homes for a significant proportion of the year so far, it seems many of ASOS’s customers were still looking for their fast fashion fix.This morning, the AIM-listed business revealed that revenue growth for its full financial year (which ends on August 31) is now likely to be between 17% and 19%. It went on to say that pre-tax profit for FY20 would now be somewhere between £130m-£150m. Considering how awful 2020 has been so far, numbers such as these are great on their own. However, it isn’t just the amount of clothes ASOS has been shifting that surprised the market.Far from buying a huge bunch of threads they don’t really intend to keep, it would appear that customers are making a lot more “deliberate” purchases. In other words, they are sending less back to the company. This is the opposite of what ASOS was expecting once lockdown restrictions were reduced. Indeed, it stated that it had seen “a significant and sustained reduction in returns rates since April”.For a company that has been forced to investigate and shut down accounts that show an “unusual pattern” of buying and returning clothes in the past, this is clearly very welcome news.  Cautious outlookAs good as today’s update is for holders, ASOS’s management isn’t getting carried away just yet. Like many listed businesses relying on discretionary spending, it highlighted that the “consumer and economic outlook remains uncertain“. There’s simply no way of knowing how long this “favourable shopping behaviour” will carry on for. Considering it’s just been confirmed that the UK is now in recession for the first time in 11 years, this all seems very reasonable. After all, a rise in unemployment translates to increased belt-tightening among ASOS’s target demographic.What’s more, the possibility of a significant second coronavirus wave — and subsequent lockdowns — is still very real. Should this happen, I suspect those forced to work from home now have all the clothes they need. High valuationAt just over the 4,500p mark, ASOS’s share price hasn’t been this high since December 2018. That said, it’s still far off the high of around 7,600p seen about two-and-a-half years ago.If it can achieve its goal of becoming “one of the few truly global leaders in fashion retail“, there’s a possibility it might one day return to this level. There is, however, a problem. In my view, many of ASOS’s qualities — a great brand, solid finances, decent earnings diversification — look to be already priced in.Before this morning’s action, the stock changed hands on an eye-watering forecast price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 87! That’s already a mighty price to pay for any stock, even one that’s now beating expectations.As an investor, I get nervous when nothing but perfection is expected from a company.The time to buy ASOS was back in March. So, if we get another market crash, you’ll know what to do.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The ASOS share price soars 10%! Can this top growth stock still make investors rich?

Here’s why I think Petrofac shares could be worth buying in 2021

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 2020 has been a terrible year for oil and gas companies worldwide. Petrofac (LSE: PFC) was one of the companies that suffered badly from the Covid-19 pandemic and the ‘oil crisis’ between March and May. Since the beginning of the year, Petrofac shares have lost more than 60% of their value, making them among the worst FTSE 250 performers this year.However, as the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines in the UK and around the world has brightened the economic outlook, I reckon oil and gas related-companies could be on the rise next year. Yes, Petrofac faces mounting pressure on new orders due to the ongoing pandemic. But the oil and gas facilities services provider has a long history and a robust portfolio of infrastructure energy projects. As such, I think Petrofac shares could be worth buying at current levels. 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 oil industryIt’s no wonder that Petrofac’s share price plummeted earlier this year. Oil and gas giants like Royal Dutch Shell and BP have faced major challenges amid the pandemic. According to the World Bank, energy consumption remains well below pre-pandemic levels. And demand for energy products will only fully recover in 2023. Much like other oil companies, Petrofac was severely affected by the lockdowns around the world. The lockdowns forced it to shut down most of its operations. As a result, it recently warned that profitability will be “materially lower” when it reports its full-year results in February. And it expects final revenues of £4bn for 2020 compared to £5.5bn in 2019.But Petrofac is not an oil producer. Instead, it builds, designs, and maintains energy infrastructure in several locations across the globe. For a large portion of its revenues, it relies on oil companies. In my view, this is a reason for optimism as the demand for global oil is expected to recover by 5.7 million barrels per day in 2021 (just 3 million barrels below pre-covid levels).Petrofac share price: what’s ahead in 2021?Since the pandemic crisis started, Petrofac has taken major steps to reduce costs and expand its future operations. After cutting costs by $125m in May, it announced in December that it plans to cut a further $250m in 2021. As such, it laid off nearly 20% of its staff, reduced salaries, and cancelled its dividend payout.At the same time, Petrofac has won a series of contracts to ensure operational performance is maximised next year. This includes a $1.65bn contract for an Abu Dhabi megaproject and a two-year contract from NEO Energy. Then there’s a contract for a green hydrogen project, and the largest crude distillation unit operation in Kuwait. Additionally, it has a pipeline of around $46bn of potential contracts for 2021.All things considered, I think Petrofac’s share price has a positive outlook for the next year. From its current price, I see plenty of reasons why it could at some point be trading again at pre-Covid-19 levels. This would mean an increase of nearly 300%. And if the oil industry recovers next year, it’s very likely that Petrofac shares will attract more attention once the company resumes paying dividends. center_img Tom Chen | Monday, 28th December, 2020 | More on: BP PFC RDSA Image source: Getty Images.

The Sylvania Platinum share price is rising! Would I buy this mining stock?

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. 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. Kirsteen Mackay | Monday, 18th January, 2021 | More on: SLP Enter Your Email Address The Sylvania Platinum (LSE:SLP) share price has been on an upward trajectory for the past few years. Despite a blip in the March market crash, it rebounded steadily and enjoyed an excellent 2020. The government classes mining as an essential industry, so although Covid-19 has caused some problems, the group has largely continued with business as usual. With metal prices continuing to rise, this bodes well for a continued run of good fortune for the Sylvania Platinum share price, I feel. Image source: Getty Images. The Sylvania Platinum share price is rising! Would I buy this mining stock? Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. What are PGMs?Platinum Group Metals (PGM) are used in industrial, medical, and electronic applications. This group includes platinum, rhodium and palladium, which are most frequently used in the manufacture of catalytic converters. But PGMs are also found in magnets, dental work, lab equipment, jewellery, and electrical contacts.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…Sylvania’s core business is the re-treatment of PGM-bearing chrome tailings, essentially re-checking the tailings for PGMs. But what are chrome tailings? After separating ore to sort the valuable from the worthless, what it sometimes leaves is ore that may still be of some beneficial use. This is known as the tailings. Sylvania re-treats these to find and extract the PGMs.Operating in South Africa, Sylvania has several processing plants from which it treats the chrome tailings and its established history and scale mean it produces PGMs at a very competitive cost. It has two core divisions, namely its Mineral Asset Development and Opencast Mining Projects and its Sylvania Dump Operations (SDO). Some 99% of the world’s chromite can be found in Africa, and from chrome tailings re-treatment, the SDO is the largest PGM producer in the industry.Will the Sylvania Platinum share price keep climbing?Sylvania Platinum’s half-year results are due at the end of the month and are widely expected to be strong. That’s because the price of rhodium has tripled since July. Demand is high for the metal due to its use in catalytic converters, which are vital for reducing vehicle emissions. Supply issues could be a problem in the future, as the world’s economic problems have discouraged the building of new mines. This gives an advantage to Sylvania.The company has great cash flow, it’s still growing, and it operates at low cost. These are all significant factors that potential investors look for in a stock. Nevertheless, mining is a notoriously risky industry to invest in, so it’s important that investors remain cautious. If the time comes when catalytic converters are no longer needed, then the price of PGMs could fall. The price of platinum has already taken a hit as demand for diesel cars falls. And the widespread adoption of electric vehicles could significantly dent demand for all three, but it’s unlikely to happen soon.Plus, if fuel-cell vehicles become viable, I expect platinum demand will soar as a single fuel cell would need around an ounce of platinum. Therefore, I don’t think it looks like the demand for PGMs will slow down soon. I also think established mining companies would adapt to exploring for alternative metals if demand for PGMs plummeted. Investing in Sylvania PlatinumI’m tempted to invest as I think the Sylvania Platinum share price could have further to climb. Last year’s dividend yield was 3.6% and I expect its forward dividend to be much higher. Investing in commodities can also be a good hedge against inflation.

The Project site (±10 HA) is located on a farm in the heart of the Franschhoek Valley in the Cape Winelands, South Africa. There were two existing structures on the site; a 1920’s house and a barn dating from ± the 18th century. The scope of this proposal included the re-utilization of the barn, which is more or less centrally located on the site and is surrounded by several magnificent and ancient Oak trees.

The barn itself was repaired and inhabited to form the heart of the home – being the living, dining and cooking spaces. The long facades are covered with verandahs; one open and planted and the other covered over, (in place of an existing lean to structure which was demolished). Save this picture!© Van Der Merwe Miszewski ArchitectsTwo additional wings of accommodation have been placed adjacent to the barn (at the ‘short ends’) – containing bedrooms, bathrooms etc and creating an enclosed external space – the WERF. The WERF provides; (in 2 areas, which are separated by a level change, an arbour and a water feature), private open space and motorcar access. Save this picture!© Van Der Merwe Miszewski ArchitectsThe purpose of the proposal was to retain the barn structure as the significant built form – by keeping the new adjacent structures low, with flat roofs, as well as retaining the existing trees planted many years ago around the barn. The primary form of the house consists of walls in the landscape – providing both habitable space as well as an ordering device for external farm space. Openings in the walls are punctured and can be closed over by external shutters. Panoramic view windows (also with shutters), are located at the ends of the accommodation wings which look out over the vineyards. Save this picture!© Van Der Merwe Miszewski ArchitectsA long pool separates the barn from the vineyards, which together with new paddocks, surround the new house.

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb December 7, 2020 849 Views Fannie Mae’s Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) this month reported a 1.7 point decline in home-purchase sentiment following three consecutive months of increases, the researchers said. The HPSI stands at 80 points for November. Since last year at this time, the HPSI has dropped 11.5 points.The decline in the HPSI can be attributed to net decreases in three components this month: mortgage rate outlook,job loss concern, and buying conditions. Three components saw net increases: home price outlook, change inhousehold income, and selling conditions.”The HPSI appears to have peaked for now as consumers continue to consider how COVID-19 impacts their ability to buy or sell a home,” said Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s Senior Vice President and Chief Economist. “This follows the HPSI’s recovery of slightly more than half of the loss experienced during the first few months of the pandemic.””Drilling down a bit, home purchase confidence has recovered more for homeowners than for renters, in part because homeowners have been less likely than renters to have had their jobs and finances impacted by the pandemic,” Duncan continued. “Interestingly, the gap between the HPSI broken out by the homeowner and renter subgroups hit a survey high in August but, despite narrowing slightly, remains elevated and well above the survey average.”Some other highlights related to HPSI indicators for the month of November 2020 (access more info on the HPSI as well as the full research report on Fanniemae.com).The net share of Americans who say it is a good time to buy decreased 3 percentage points—The percentage of respondents who say it is a good time to buy a home decreased from 60% to 57%, while the percentage who say it is a bad time to buy remained the same at 35%.  The net share of those who say it is a good time to sell increased 2 percentage points—The percentage of respondents who say it is a good time to sell a home remained the same at 59%, while the percentage who say it’s a bad time to sell decreased from 35% to 33%. The net share of Americans who say home prices will go up increased 8 percentage points month over month—The percentage of respondents who say home prices will go up in the next 12 months increased this month from 40% to 41%, while the percentage who say home prices will go down decreased from 20% to 13%. The share who think home prices will stay the same increased from 31% to 35%. As a result, The net share of Americans who say mortgage rates will go down over the next 12 months decreased 14 percentage points month over month—The percentage of respondents who say mortgage rates will go down in the next 12 months decreased from 11% to 8%, while the percentage who expect mortgage rates to go up increased from 32% to 43%. The share who think mortgage rates will stay the same decreased from 49% to 40%. The net share of Americans who say they are not concerned about losing their job decreased 6 percentage points month over month—The percentage of respondents who say they are not concerned about losing their job in the next 12 months decreased from 79% to 76%, while the percentage who say they are concerned increased from 21% to 24%. The net share of those who say their household income is significantly higher than it was 12 months ago increased 3 percentage points month over month—The percentage of respondents who say their household income is significantly higher than it was 12 months ago increased from 23% to 24%, while the percentage who say their household income is significantly lower decreased from 20% to 18%.

RAN orders additional Kongsberg bridge simulators

first_img Photo: Photo: Royal Australian Navy View post tag: Kongsberg The Royal Australian Navy has awarded Kongsberg Digital a contract for the delivery of two K-Sim full mission bridge simulators at its HMAS Watson Bridge Simulator Facility in Watsons Bay, Sydney, Australia.The Watson facility contract follows an earlier one from November 2018, under which Kongsberg was to deliver two simulators for a new training facility at HMAS Stirling in Perth.The project is a noteworthy addition to Kongsberg’s service delivery contracts with the RAN, which includes multiple shiphandling and engine room simulators delivered at training facilities across the country.The requirement for expansion and intensification of RAN’s training program is the result of a sustained period of growth and capability enhancement for the navy. Its shipbuilding program is currently fully occupied with the construction of new Hunter-class anti-submarine Future Frigates and Arafura-class offshore patrol vessels, while the navy is also taking delivery of two Supply-class AOR (Auxilliary Oiler Replenishment) vessels.“Our simulator training requirements continue to grow and Kongsberg has shown the flexibility to support our requirements, even in a compressed timeframe,” said Commander Chris Doherty, Head of Command and Navigation, RAN. “This latest delivery reflects the depth of our partnership as well as the importance of high-quality simulator training to the safety and operational performance of our people and fleet.” View post tag: RAN View post tag: HMAS Watson Share this article View post tag: K-Simlast_img read more
