Top British stocks to buy for the infrastructure boom

first_img Paul Summers | Tuesday, 15th June, 2021 | More on: AHT SOM Our 5 Top Shares for the New “Green Industrial Revolution” 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. See all posts by Paul Summers Assuming economies around the world do fully unlock in 2021, I think we could see an infrastructure/construction boom before long. With this in mind, here are what I consider to be the best British stocks to buy in this space. Return to formAt the end of last month, I said I’d be prepared to snap up FTSE 100 equipment provider Ashtead (LSE: AHT) based on my belief that there wouldn’t be any nasty surprises in today’s Q4 trading update. Positively, this has proven to be the correct call — the share price is up almost 3.5% as I type, on some very attractive numbers.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…Revenue jumped 23% to £1.27bn in the final three months of Ashtead’s financial year as the company returned to growth. Understandably, the vast majority of this came from rental revenue. For FY21 as a whole, a 3% rise was logged at constant exchange rates (£5.03bn).All told, Ashtead reported a pre-tax profit of £220m for Q4. That’s a stonking 158% jump compared to the same period in 2020. Nevertheless, a final figure of £936m for the entire year was 1% down due to the impact of Covid-19. Other highlights from today’s statement include the 75% jump in free cash flow to record levels (£1.38bn) helping to reduce leverage from 1.9 times to 1.4 times. Although most definitely not a high-yielding stock, the 3.7% increase to the total dividend was also indicative of a company recovering well.So, would I buy?Actually, yes I would. In addition to already-excellent operating margins and an international presence, Ashtead begins its new financial year “with clear momentum”, according to CEO Brendan Horgan. With leaders including President Joe Biden intending to spend big on infrastructure, this doesn’t sound like hyperbole. In fact, I think Ashtead is, quite literally, one of the best picks and shovels plays around.Of course, there’s no sure thing in investing. A rise in the number of infections in Ashtead’s key markets may cause delays to projects, as might a shortage of materials. One also wonders if the company’s valuation — 28 times forecast earnings before the market opened — might prove too rich for some. Naturally, Ashtead isn’t the only option. Another of the best British stocks to buy in this sector, in my opinion, can be found lower down the market.Growing flat-outI’ve been bullish on laser-guided equipment manufacturer Somero Enterprises (LSE: SOM) for ages now. Some of this is probably down to old-fashioned bias (I hold the stock). However, recent stronger-than-expected trading in the US provides some substance. Assuming the company reports more good news in today’s annual general meeting, previous guidance could be exceeded again. Somero products ensure concrete is perfectly level. This may sound dull, but it’s essential for buildings like warehouses. And thanks to the explosion of online shopping following multiple lockdowns, those warehouses will be in even greater demand from retailers going forward.Again, there are risks. Like Ashtead, Somero could be impacted by a slowdown in projects. Its minnow status also means the latter’s share price could prove more volatile than its FTSE 100 peer.  Then again, on 17 times forecast earnings, Somero is considerably cheaper. It also generates far higher returns on capital (ROCE), has net cash on its balance sheet, and frequently showers its investors with cash. As such, I’d have no issue buying more today.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom She’s spent years taking care of you, whether it was mending your first broken heart, helping you pack and move for college, or moving in to help take care of your first child. Mom has always been around to help. For all the times she’s been there for you, now is the time to be there for her. This Mother’s Day, plan the perfect day to show mom just how thankful you are.Plan a day together. Set aside all other plans and treat your mom to a day filled with her favorite people, places and things. Whether it’s a day spent indoors playing games or reminiscing, or grabbing the extended family and heading to her favorite park, lake or ocean for a picnic, simply sharing in these moments is sure to bring your mom joy and delight.Host an afternoon tea. While breakfast in bed may have been your Mother’s Day tradition growing up, perhaps it’s time for something new. This year, treat mom to a relaxing and indulgent afternoon tea filled with delicious treats like these Lavender Buttermilk Scones.Lavender Buttermilk SconesIngredients:8 ounces self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting1 teaspoon baking powder2 ounces unsalted butter, cut into small cubes, plus extra for greasing3 ounces lavender-flavored sugar, sifted if preferred (see Cook’s Tip below)1 pint buttermilk, plus extra for brushingSaltYour choice of Bonne Maman PreservesDirections:Heat the oven to 425 degrees.Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.Stir in the lavender sugar (sifted if preferred) and a pinch of salt and make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour in the buttermilk and mix to combine, making a soft dough.Briefly knead the dough on a floured surface, then lightly roll out to about 3/4-inch thick. Cut scones with a 2-inch pastry cutter and place on a greased baking sheet.Brush the top of each scone with a little extra buttermilk and bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned on the top. Cool on a wire rack, dust lightly with flour and serve with your favorite choice of Bonne Maman preserves.Cook’s tips:* To make lavender-flavored sugar, push 2-3 small washed and dried sprigs of fresh lavender into a jar of caster sugar. Leave for at least 24 hours before using.* Brushing the scones with beaten egg before baking will give them a shiny golden top.Give Mom a well deserved day off.

The project is located on ‘de la Roche’ street, in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood, a vibrant area with an incomparable urban vitality. In view of its situation, the project aims to give a new breath to this plot with a contemporary residential project of five housing units reflecting all the energy of this strategic sector where young professionals mix with families and couples.Save this picture!ContextSave this picture!SchemasThus, the project has to be a soft densification that fits into the current urban landscape without distorting it. One of the concerns is to keep families in the city by creating a quality living environment based on a green strategy. To meet these challenges, ADHOC architects have devised a new typology on the plot by constructing both the street and the alley. By doing so, a central space is created and instantly reveals a new potential. The free space given by this new inner courtyard creates a living and organic place which strengthens the bond between private and public spaces, reflecting an innovative way of thinking.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Adrien WilliamsThe mezzanine on the facade allows the light to penetrate the courtyard while harmonizing the height of the building with its neighbour. The exterior spaces in the front take form of private loggias that preserve the intimacy of the residents while participating to the animation of the street. Thanks to the central opening, the living spaces are bathed with natural light. A narrative spin has nourished the inspiration of the project while supporting the architectural concept that valued an open central heart and a peripheral organization. This concept is inspired by the geode; a hollowed mineral mass which interior is covered by crystals.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Adrien WilliamsThe geode, under an austere and protective external appearance, conceals a true crystalline treasure. It reveals a natural form of staging that stimulates inspiration around the notion of contrast. This concept is exploited through the project at different levels. The exterior of the building is very sober, characterized by a modest materiality.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsThe headers in the brick layer and the openwork masonry in front of the windows and loggias reflect the mineral roughness and protective aspect of the geode. The inner courtyard reflects its crystalline and blazing materiality. The courtyard then became an urban oasis for the inhabitants who can share and talk together, developing a strong social sense of belonging. A green strategy and high energy performance support the project’s ambitions for innovation.  As a result, ‘La Géode’ is expected to become the first multi-unit building to achieve LEED v4 certification in Canada.Project gallerySee allShow lessWalk Through and Experience the Rich History of Ceramics With ‘Gateways’Architecture NewsThe Beauty of Bamboo: The Best Photos of the WeekArticlesProject locationAddress:4341 Rue de la Roche, Montréal, QC H2J 3H8, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

He said the cold weather plants are taking the brunt of the higher temperatures.“This week we’ve had temperatures of up to 80, which has had a considerable impact on our winter annuals such as ornamental kale, cabbage and pansies. The kale and cabbage are already bolting, which wasn’t supposed to take place for another few weeks,” Huddleston said. “They’re already at the end of their life cycle.”The warmer temperatures coming sooner also raise concern over a potential increase in insect populations in Fort Worth.Huddleston said despite the early bloom of a lot of major flowers, bugs are feasting and destroying various plants at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens.“The pansies look bad enough now that we really should consider replacing them. The aphids are having a field day with the foliage,” Huddleston said. “Usually we wouldn’t even consider doing that until about April.”Ace Hardware employee Brandi Dye said she too has concerns about pests this spring, and said gardeners should be prepared to fend off an increase the number of bugs.“Without a hard frost this winter, the pests and bugs in your gardens are going to be much worse this year.” Dye said. “Watching for grubworms and mosquitos will be the biggest key for gardeners this year, and local pesticides are going to be really important.”Despite the negative effects of the warmer weather, local residents such as April Rancier are excited about the prospect of planting their gardens earlier this year.Rancier said she is thankful for the mild winter, as her garden will now require less preparation going into the season.“I didn’t have to trim as many weeds or cover as many plants during the winter, which saved a ton of work,” Rancier said. “Everything is blooming much earlier, so I’ve already started mapping out what I plan on planting where.”Dye said she has noticed the eagerness of residents to start gardening as well. She said the recent spike in sales has been the primary indication.“Usually our gardening season doesn’t start for a few weeks, but we’ve already sold a ton of seeds and a lot of our potted plants,” Dye said. “The forecast shows that we are in the clear, and people aren’t as worried anymore about the late season frost.”“I’ve been gardening since I was a little girl, so to have mother-nature give us an early gift like this, that is really exciting,” Rancier said.

The Senate repeals the offence of insulting a foreign head of state

first_img RSF_en to go further Reporters Without Borders welcomes the Senate decision to repeal Article 36 of the French press law on insulting a foreign head of state. The repeal was voted through by the upper house on the second reading of the Perben draft law and constitutes a victory for press freedom. Help by sharing this information RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story News The European Court says laws must be considered as including both content and interpretation. They must also be predictable, accessible and comprehensible. Anyone exercising their right to express themselves, which the Universal Declaration of Human Rights says is one of the highest human aspirations, needs to know the limits beyond which such a right is considered excessive. “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News Follow the news on France June 2, 2021 Find out more Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EUcenter_img June 4, 2021 Find out more Senators repealed Article 36 of the 29 July 1881 law relating to the offence of insulting a foreign head of state, at the second reading of the Perben draft law. The repeal decision brings French legislation into line with the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) that condemned France on 25 June 2002. The ECHR found that the offence of insulting a foreign head of state did not allow journalists to produce proof of their allegations and was a disproportionate measure to protect a person’s reputation or rights, even in the case of a head of state or government. The court considered this law was a means of giving heads of state an exceptional status that no longer conformed to current political practice and concepts. The existence of this offence therefore damaged freedom of expression without responding to “a pressing social need” and as a result violated Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights.______________18 June 2003Call for repeal of press laws contravening European Human Rights ActReporters Without Borders called on the French government today to repeal sections of the country’s press laws that contravene the European Human Rights Convention, accusing it of ignoring rulings that they should be abolished.”Three times in recent years, the European Court of Human Rights has firmly stated that parts of French laws violate the article 10 of the Convention,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to French justice minister Dominique Perben. “These are article 2 of the 2 July 1931 law (publicising civil parties involved in a court case), article 14 of the 29 July 1881 law (foreign publications) and article 36 of the same law (disrespect to foreign heads of state). None of them have been amended or abolished, yet they are clear obstacles to freedom of expression.” He noted that the European Court emphasised the importance of press freedom for the health of any democratic society. The French media constantly had to justify itself, he said. In libel cases, for example, malice was presumed on the part of the journalist, who had to prove the contrary, illustrating a mistrust of the media. The thinking behind the European Court’s rulings is slowly filtering into the decisions of French judges in press cases and article 10 is now referred to in nearly all cases that come before French courts. But some judges pay little attention to it, considering that curbs on free expression involved in the prosecution of journalists are necessary in a democratic society and justify the end.Reporters Without Borders thinks it necessary to change the laws and go beyond just referring to the Court’s rulings, which do not provide any real legal security since French courts have no obligation to obey the Court. The French supreme court has shown that the European Court’s condemnation of French legal practices was no block to them being upheld (in a case involving the satirical weekly Le Canard Enchaîné). The European Court ruled on 3 October 2000, concerning an article in the French weekly l’Evénement du Jeudi about legal battles between current and former heads of the firm Sonacotra, that no special treatment was due the content of the legal documents relating to civil parties in the case. The French supreme court even brushed aside jurisprudence to back the European Court by saying that article 2 of the 1931 law, with its general and complete ban, restricted freedom of expression in a way that was unnecessary for protecting the legitimate interests listed in article 10-2 of the European Convention. The European Court also condemned article 14 of the 1881 press law that allowed the interior minister to ban the sale and distribution of foreign-language publications or those in French produced abroad. It said in a 17 July 2001 ruling that, in the case of foreign publications, it contravened common law and was an unnecessary restriction in a democratic society. Less than a year after the ruling, on 25 June 2002, the Court again condemned France for its use of article 36 of the 1881 law on disrespect towards a foreign head of state. A 1995 article in the French daily Le Monde said aides of Moroccan King Hassan II were involved in drug production and smuggling. The king sued and after initially losing the case, won on appeal to the supreme court. The European Court condemned the decision, noting that the offence of disrespect towards a foreign head of state prevented journalists proving their allegations, and said the law was excessive protection of personal reputation or rights, even in the case of a head of state or government.The Court said the law gave heads of state an undue status in common law that was out of line with modern political ideas and practices. Yet a few days after the ruling, on 3 July, the Paris appeals court ignored it and said the offence could stand, though it freed the defendants. The appeals court decision creates legal doubt, making it vital that article 36 be abolished, Reporters Without Borders said.
