Is this FTSE 250 firm now too cheap to ignore? “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img The meltdown in the global oil market is sending the share prices of Royal Dutch Shell and BP through the floor. A former FTSE 100 share that’s also suffering because of the collapse in crude values is Weir Group (LSE: WEIR).The engineer was in trouble long before the coronavirus crisis emerged, though. The price of its stock has more than halved during the past year because of challenging conditions in the North American oil and gas market. In 2019, hardware orders from the fossil fuel industry had tanked 30% year on year. No wonder Weir recently announced that it’s looking to divest its oil and gas operations, then.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…It looks, however, that the FTSE 250 firm may have waited too long to pull the plug. The recent collapse in Brent prices means that Weir may have a struggle on its hands to offload its battered oil and gas business. And in the meantime it will continue to suffer from frightful profits declines as US storage facilities hit their limits and benchmark prices plummet.Oil industry in meltdownThe terrible outlook for the oil market was outlined by Chris Beauchamp, chief market analyst at IG Group today. He comments that “we are witnessing markets finally play catch-up to the reality on the ground in the oil market – huge oversupply and non-existent demand have combined with nearly-full storage facilities to drive complete dislocation in the crude oil market.”In a worrying precursor Beauchamp noted that values of the June contract are following what happened to the previous month’s contract and already falling through the floor. Both WTI and Brent contracts have fallen below $20 per barrel.Cheap but riskyEven before this more recent collapse, Weir said late last month that business had started to dry up. Then it said that a mix of reduced black gold prices and widespread reductions in exploration and production (E&P) had damaged orders from North America.This was not the most chilling aspect of the release, though. The engineer continued that “we expect to see continued sequential declines in activity through 2020 with E&P capex now expected to be down at least 30% year on year versus our prior expectation of 10%.”The extreme shortage in oil storage capacity means that US producers could start shuttering oilfields with no plans to reopen them in the long term, too. Weir’s problems clearly extend beyond the start of the new decade. And things could get even worse should a collapse in commodity prices affect demand for its products from the mining industry, too. The company also said in late March that it had “seen a slowdown in original equipment orders” from minerals diggers.I don’t care about Weir’s low price. Currently, it carries a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of below 12 times. This is a share that I’ll continue to avoid. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Samoa beat Fiji to win the Pacific Nations Cup 2010

first_imgWednesday Jun 30, 2010 Samoa beat Fiji to win the Pacific Nations Cup 2010 Samoa surprised Fiji this past weekend in Apia as they snatched the Pacific Nations Cup from under their noses by beating the favourites 31-9 in the Samoan capital. The win adds to their impressive IRB Sevens World Series win earlier in the year.Fiji were expected to win the final game after coming out tops in their previous two, but the Samoans scored five tries to take their first ever Pacific Nations Cup title after they came away with a better points difference, despite also having two wins and a loss.“This win was for the people of Samoa. We came into the game with no pressure but just to give our best shot and prove our worth to the people of Samoa,” said captain Mahonri Schwalger.“I am pretty lost for words, but we came out here to win the game and gave it all we had for the people in our country,” added Schwalger.“It is amazing what attitude can do. At the end of the day you want to win the game and we threw everything we had at Fiji and now we have the cup so I am proud of my boys.The Samoan side had its fair share of Sevens stars on show, with one of their biggest, Mikaele Pesamino, showing those skills as he scored a great solo effort. Joe Tekori also crossed in the first half, while fellow Sevens players Uale Mai and Alefoti Faosiliva also scored, with the latter scoring twice.Its the first time that the PNC has been won by a Pacific Island nation, after it was dominated by New Zealand sides since its 2006 inception.The following is only short highlights, but includes Pesaminos great try.

Commentary: How Ag Tech is Solving our Biggest Challenges

first_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 25, 2020 By Gary TruittImagine a scenario where Indiana communities were begging dairy farms to locate in their area. Some might even provide tax incentives. This would be quite a change from the current situation where many communities actively work to keep dairy farms, especially larger dairy operations, out of their area. One of the biggest objections these communities have is the waste produced by dairy farms. Concerns about  ground water contamination are typically trotted out with lots of health scares  to accompany them. Now, a technological breakthrough could change all that.In Lake Village, IN on the Donald and Cheri De Jong, Natural Prairie Dairy Farms, a new system is operational that transforms cow poop into clean water and dry organic fertilizer. “The Varcor will revolutionize agriculture as it provides a clean water supply and natural fertilizer that’s economically viable and not dependent upon the petrochemical industry,” commented Donald De Jong, co-owner and CEO at Natural Prairie Dairy. “Not only does the Varcor system create clean water, it also generates dry NPK powder that also contains all the micronutrients that plants require. It’s a game-changer, indeed.”How exactly does the Varcor work? It takes the “the manure from a cow” and turns it into clean water to hydrate the cows (and fields) and dry, organic, pathogen-free fertilizer to nourish the crops. Natural Prairie Dairy developed the Varcor system in a joint venture with Sedron Agriculture, a division of Sedron Technologies. Sedron Technologies is led by Peter Janicki, who previously had partnered with The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to develop the Janicki Omni Processor, which processes human waste into clean, drinkable water.The issue of manure is one of the biggest environmental issues facing the livestock industry. Increasing regulations on the management, uses, and transportation of animal waste continue to pose challenges for producers. Yet, innovative technology is providing answers. The process that turns manure into electricity has been around for a while but is being refined and is proving to be increasingly practical on many livestock farms.While much of the focus of the ag tech revolution is on increasing production and lowering costs, we are starting to see innovations that deal with some of agriculture’s most challenging environmental issues.  More funding, needs to be directed into this area as farmers seek a way to meet the food demands of the world and the environmental demands of society. As agriculture adopts new technology that reduces a farm’s environmental impact and, in some cases, may actually improve the environment,  perhaps communities will welcome and help protect farmland and farming operations.  Environmentalists, regulators, and food marketers will come to see modern farming practices as beneficial.

Electrical fire at Altnagelvin Hospital

first_img Google+ Electrical fire at Altnagelvin Hospital Twitter Pinterest Twenty patients have been evacuated from a ward at Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry after a small electrical fire.About 30 firefighters were called to the seventh floor of the hospital just before 10 o’clock last night.No-one was injured in the blaze, which started in an electrical switch room.It took firefighters about two hours to bring the fire under control, and the Western Health Trust has said that it is still assessing the extent of the damage.Barry McDowell, district commander for the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service told the BBC that six fire appliances were used in the operation.He said patients had to be evacuated from the seventh and eighth floors, and a comprehensive search took place through the hospital from floor six to floor ten to ensure that there was no fire spreading throughout the hospital.Although the fire was small, he said it produced “very pungent smoke”, and spread quickly.Mr McDowell said there had been good co-operation between firefighters and hospital staff to ensure everyone was safe, and there were no injuries.

CalSTRS venture will invest $1B in build-to-rent homes

first_img Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags CalSTRS CEO Jack Ehnes and PCCP partner Jim Galovan (Photos via iStock, CalSTRS, PCCP)The nation’s second largest public pension fund and an investment firm are placing a big bet on build-to-rent housing.California State Teachers’ Retirement System and Pacific Coast Capital Partners have formed a $1 billion joint venture to invest in the fast-growing single-family housing sector, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal.The venture will focus on build-to-rent communities in primary and secondary markets across the country. It will acquire existing properties and construct new single-family developments.CalSTRS and PCCP have so far paid $240 million for five build-to-rent properties in Atlanta; Jacksonville, Florida; Nashville, Tennessee; and Raleigh, North Carolina.“With a nationwide shortage of single-family housing supply, we see the strongest demand for the [build-for-rent] sector coming from millennials and baby boomers,” PCCP’s Jim Galovan said in a statement. The duo is targeting homes between 1,200 square feet and 2,000 square feet, which Galovan said are in particular demand among renters because of their price point.The pandemic has led to a surge in demand for housing outside urban areas, and has also pushed prices up. A growing number of individuals and families who have struggled with social distancing in large apartment buildings are opting for more indoor and outdoor space in the suburbs once their leases are up.Investors are seeing opportunity. Firms like NexMetro, Brookfield Asset Management, and American Homes 4 Rent are also betting big on the build-to-rent sector.More than 50,000 build-to-rent homes were constructed in the 12 months ending on Sept. 30, according to a recent report. That was 66 percent more than the average over the last 40 years.Last week, developer Quinn Residences said it was planning to construct 8,000 build-to-rent houses in the Southeast after a $500 million commitment from an investor.
