Cheap shares: I think these FTSE 350 shares have huge recovery potential

first_img 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.

The stock market crash back in March is still creating opportunities for investors looking for a bargain. I think these FTSE 350 shares all have huge recovery potential as the prices have fallen heavily.The cheap travel stockNational Express (LSE: NEX) shares are down over 60% so far this year. Like other travel-focused shares, it’s been understandably hit hard by the lockdown. The shares had been steadily rising though for years before the coronavirus outbreak.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…National Express was able to update back in May that even though revenue halved in April its earnings and cash flow were better than expected. Services are also opening up across the UK, US, Spain, and Morocco this month.With operating profits increasing from £197.9m to £242.3m between 2017 and 2019, I think it’s a hugely profitable company. Revenues also increased by 18% over the same time period.My main concern is that the group does carry about £1.2bn of net debt at the time of its last annual report. Also the biggest division is school buses in North America so much of the recovery will be dependent on schools reopening there.On a price-to-earnings of only five I think the shares could well be too cheap to ignore.The builder with huge recovery potentialCrest Nicholson (LSE: CRST) are, based on the P/E ratio, just as cheap as those of National Express. Like other housebuilders, it seems to be suffering from a lack of investor enthusiasm for the industry as a whole. This is likely because investors anticipate Brexit negotiations and the end of Help to Buy in coming years might hamper demand.More recently, the coronavirus has obviously had an effect as well, pushing the cheap share price pre-virus even lower.The group no longer pays a dividend. It also said it now expects FY2020 adjusted profit before tax to be in the range of £35m to £45m, which is well below 2019’s profit of £121.1m. Its debt is also now a bit of a worry and is worth keeping an eye on.For all this though I think the share has the potential to recover. Housebuilders were allowed to reopen much earlier other than many other industries. They benefit from the UK’s continuing imbalance between supply and demand for housing.The FTSE 100 dividend cutterRoyal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) has been hammered because the company took the step of cutting its dividend. Along with worries over the oil price and fears about the global economy there’s been a bit of a perfect storm brewing over the share price.Add to the mix comment from rival BP’s CEO saying now could be “peak oil” and it’s little wonder investor confidence in Shell isn’t so high.Yet for all this in the short-term, given how cheap the shares are I think there’s the opportunity for a huge recovery. Confidence fluctuates and Shell has come through similar periods before. Longer term, it also has opportunities in clean energy and petrochemicals so its days are far from over in my view.center_img Andy Ross | Tuesday, 7th July, 2020 | More on: CRST NEX RDSB See all posts by Andy Ross Cheap shares: I think these FTSE 350 shares have huge recovery potential Andy Ross owns no share mentioned.

The building site was discovered during a stroll through the forest near the river Enns which raised the desire to live in the middle of nature surrounded by trees. At first sight, it seemed to be impossible to build a house there since only a narrow building area is located on even surface, the rest of it is a steep slope of six meters.Save this picture!© Gregor GrafSave this picture!Plans and SectionSave this picture!© Gregor GrafThis special situation was solved with an unusual but also simple construction. The building got only partially placed on the solid ground; the bigger part of it is lifted off the ground and reaches into the tree crowns. A steel framework is supporting the construction. Save this picture!© Gregor GrafFrom the beginning on it was planned that a broad part of the project was going to be carried out by the owners themselves. The easy system allowed step-by-step project management and made it possible to split up tasks between owners and professionals. After the foundation and the steel framework got delivered, the solid wood panels for ceilings and walls have been mounted within one week.Save this picture!© Gregor GrafThe further work such as straw insulation, the facade made out of larch wood, the terrace, the carport as well as most parts of the interior was carried out by the building owners. The loadbearing supporting structure out of plywood remained visible in the interior space.Save this picture!© Gregor GrafBright fir wood creates a natural atmosphere. The two-story living room with its tiled stove made out of uncovered firebrick builds the centerpiece of the house. The oven is able to heat up the whole building due to modern heat storage technology. Large-sized windows are bringing nature and its green color into the room.Even more tree house feeling is possible when spending time on the balcony, which is supported by an airy framework.

New president urged to repeal laws restricting press freedom

Organisation Follow the news on Panama Help by sharing this information to go further News September 2, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 New president urged to repeal laws restricting press freedom PanamaAmericas Anti-Corruption Day : Journalists on front line of fight against corruption PanamaAmericas Reporters Without Borders called today on new Panamanian President Martin Torrijos to repeal all laws that still include prison terms for media offences.”We urge you to remove these laws from the statute book within the next 100 days,” it said in an appeal to Torrijos, who was sworn in today. “This means completing the constitutional reform project to drop article 33 concerning “insults” and repealing articles of the criminal code about defamation and tarnishing a person’s honour. These changes will highlight your commitment to press freedom,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.”Outgoing President Mireya Moscoso’s pardoning last week of all journalists being sued for defamation shows the country’s leaders know such laws have no place in a democracy. We ask you to follow up her action by repealing the laws.” Article 33 of the national constitution allows public officials who consider they have been defamed to obtain a court order to imprison the offending person without trial. Articles 202 and 386 of the code of legal procedure and article 827 of the administrative code allow for imprisonment of between three days and two months, depending on the prominence of the politician or official involved.The outgoing parliament passed a constitutional reform law on 27 July to repeal article 33 but to be valid it must also be approved by the new parliament which meets from 1 September.Articles 173A, 175, 307 and 308 of the penal code provide up to two years in prison for defamation, insults or tarnishing the honour of a person or a state institution. There are no plans to drop these provisions.On 27 August, President Moscoso pardoned more than 80 journalists being sued for defamation and thus risking imprisonment.

Bynum School gets more elbow room with new building

first_imgLocal News A student at Bynum School points to a sensory icon on a smart board during elementary primary class in their new building Midland. From a small site with a farm house and trailers, Bynum School has moved into a new state-of-the-art building with 33,000 square feet to spread out in. Among many other features, it has sinks in every classroom, technology, administrative offices, a student activity center, a dedicated clinic, a separate detached building for its vocational program, including a woodshop and ceramic studio and classrooms, Executive Director Bill Maurer said. The grounds also include a greenhouse and potting shed. The contractor was Campbell Construction and the lead architect was T.J. McClure, a principal with Rhotenberry Wellen Architects. The school moved into its new quarters in July. A dedication is planned for Feb. 5. The previous 4.1-acre site at State Highway 158 and County Road 60 is for sale. The student activity center, Maurer said, is a major asset because now they have space to conduct graduation, programs, parent meetings and they don’t need to ask churches or other facilities to use their space. One of those events is a speaker series. Jo Mascorro will present “So How Exactly is That Working for You? Effective Strategies for Responding to Challenging Behavior” from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 2 at Bynum. “… It’s exciting that we can have everything we need right here, and also we are pleased that we have space in … our activity center that we can share with other nonprofits. … Our classrooms are just wonderful. We have space. Every classroom has its own restroom. We have three work stations in every classroom, plus the teacher has a laptop. Every classroom has walk-in closets, cabinets and a whole wall of counter space,” Maurer said. Director of Development Tracy Bush said the building is constructed so it is easy to add on to. “Hopefully next fall, we’ll have a pumpkin patch. Then there’s room for more greenhouses over there and on this side. … The sidewalk goes completely around the school, so they have a nice little walking path,” Bush said. She added that the school nurse, registered nurse Frances Sanchez, now has a clinic where she can care for students in one spot. She has nurses from OC, Howard College, Texas Tech University Health Sciences, and UTPB rotate through for clinicals. “It helps them get used to being around our population,” Bush said. She’s also able to take a backpack on wheels, complete with flashing red light, with all her medical supplies to classrooms. The school, which serves people ages 3 through adult, currently has 67 students and eight on a waiting list. Each student has an individual program plan. Maurer said the building is programmed to accommodate 122, but more space is needed for special needs students depending on their abilities. They may use walkers, wheelchairs or other conveyances. Tenneson, 8, said the new building is, “my favorite place on earth.” Pristine, 7, said the facility is “great.” “I like the windows,” she said. Bynum School recently celebrated its 35th anniversary. Ten years ago on its 25th anniversary, a capital campaign kicked off, but Maurer said it did not meet its goal. About four years ago, Will and Mikell Abney and Don and Susan Evans chaired a campaign that achieved the goal of the new facilities. “Both families have children with special needs. They worked so hard with our community and with Bynum School promoting our school that our capital campaign was a success and we were able to move into this state-of-the-art facility,” Maurer said. Evans said he thinks the new facility shows the character of the Permian Basin. “I just have to believe it’s got to be one of the finest facilities in this country for dealing with those with special needs. …,” Evans said. He said Bynum is a place people should see if they’re interested in moving to the Permian Basin to raise a family. “You may not be a family that has a child with special needs, obviously most are not. But to see what this region did for those that do have special needs it just gives you a look into the heart and soul of the community,” Evans said. A second phase of plans for Bynum includes residential facilities. The school sits on 60 acres of donated land in Midland County at 5100 Avalon Drive. “We have enough land here that we can accommodate residential facilities, but right now our focus is on our day students. Long term, we hope we can provide residential facilities so parents don’t have to send their children to Houston or Austin or distances away from home. There are a number of families in Midland and Odessa who currently have adult children in Houston at Briarwood,” Maurer said. Class sizes are limited to 10 students. There currently are five classrooms with four teachers. “We are adding an additional classroom and teacher. We are hiring another teacher and assistant and will be hiring additional staff for the 2019-2020 school year. In addition, we have our Vocational Department which is divided into three classrooms,” Head of School for Student Programs and Services Keri St. John said in an email. Maurer noted that maintaining small classes is an advantage allowing for more effective instruction. “With those 10 students, we have at least one teacher and one assistant so that’s two adults with no more than 10 students. We do have one or two classes that have two assistants, but that’s because of the needs of our students,” he added. Job training is provided for students and they are taught how communication skills. “We do job training for students who are able to do that. We do prevocational (training), working with them about communication, maybe math skills, how to interview, how to dress, personal hygiene,” Maurer said. “Then in the prevocational preparation, our vocational staff works with students to find out what they’re interested. Then … our vocational director tries to find a placement that meets their needs and their interests.” Maurer said Bynum has had students accepted to Odessa and Midland College, enter the military and pass their GED test.

It was urged that if such dues of the lawyers are cleared, the same shall mitigate the hardship of the Government Advocates to a great extent.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The order was passed in a writ petition filed by one Nikita Sutar, minor daughter of the second wife of the deceased, Chandra Chetry Sutar. As per the facts of the case, the deceased entered into a marriage with the Petitioner’s mother, after his first wife left him. The question before the Court was whether a child from such a marriage will be entitled to the deceased’s family pension. The Bench noted that this issue is no longer res integra and was discussed by the Supreme Court in Rameshwari Devi v. State of Bihar & Ors., (2000) 2 SCC 431. In this case, the dispute before the Supreme Court was between two wives namely Rameshwari Devi and Yogmaya Devi. Whereas the pensionary benefits of their deceased husband Narain Lal were being paid to the first wife, Rameshwari Devi, his second wife, Yogmaya Devi and her children had instituted a writ petition before the Patna High Court, which was allowed by the Single Judge by providing that the minor children of Yogmaya Devi would also be entitled to a share of the family pensionery benefit. The appeal filed against the judgment of the Single Judge failed and accordingly, a further appeal was carried before the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court arrived at a conclusion that although Yogmaya Devi cannot be described as a widow of the deceased, as her marriage was void, but the sons of the marriage between Narain Lal and Yogmaya Devi being the legitimate sons of Narain Lal would be entitled to the property of Narain Lal in equal share along with the wife Rameshwari Devi and the other children of Rameshwari Devi. It had observed thus, “It cannot be disputed that the marriage between Narain Lal and Yogmaya Devi was in contravention of clause (i) of Section 5 of the Hindu Marriage Act and was a void marriage. Under Section 16 of this Act, children of void marriage are legitimate. Under the Hindu Succession Act, 1956, property of a male Hindu dying intestate devolve firstly on heirs in clause (1) which include widow and son. Among the widow and son, they all get shares. Yogmaya Devi cannot be described a widow of Narain Lal, her marriage with Narain Lal being void. Sons of the marriage between Narain Lal and Yogmaya Devi being the legitimate sons of Narain Lal would be entitled to the property of Narain Lal in equal shares along with that of Rameshwari Devi and the son born from the marriage of Rameshwari Devi with Narain Lal.” In view of the law laid down by the Supreme Court in this case, the High Court held that the Petitioner would be entitled to the deceased’s pensionary benefits and directed the concerned authority to decide the share of the petitioner to the family pensionary benefits, vis-à-vis other Respondents.
