Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Today, I’m looking at two stocks that have been treated very differently by the Covid-19 pandemic. One is Dunelm Group (LSE: DNLM). Although it did drop sharply at the start of the stock market crash, the Dunelm share price recovered quickly and it’s now up 30% so far this year.Hot on the heels of final results released in September, the home furnishings retailer has now given us a first quarter update. Full-year sales had dipped a little, by 3.9%, and EPS fell 14%. But at 27 June, Dunelm had net cash of £45.5m on the books. That was partly due to £80m of exceptional working capital inflows. But it’s a big improvement on the firm’s net debt of £25.3m a year previously.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…Following on from that, in the 13 weeks to 26 September, sales figures have shown Dunlem’s resilience in the face of the stock market crash. Total sales are up 36.7% from the first quarter last year to £359.1m. Digital sales grew as a proportion of the mix by 12.1 percentage points to 29.7%.Dunelm’s gross margin improved too, by 100bps, due to strong demand leading to a lower proportion of discounted sales. We hear the firm’s cash balance has been “flattered by the timing of the September month end payment run of approximately £60m.” But with net cash of £175.2m, I doubt shareholders are complaining.I’ve mentioned the key word once already, resilience. And that really is what’s making the difference between successful companies and strugglers now. I rate Dunelm as what billionaire investor Warren Buffett might describe as ‘a wonderful company at a fair price’. Some, mind, might see the valuation as a bit stretched.Stock market crash victimAt the other end of the scale, we have Marston’s (LSE: MARS), whose shares are down 67% in the stock market crash. With pubs closed across the country for months, and restrictions being reinforced after having been relaxed, business is hurting.Marston’s is due to release full-year results on 10 December. And, on Thursday, we got a trading update. Overall total sales for the year are down 30% on last year to £821m. And total pub sales fell 34% to £515m. The company had reopened around 99% of its pubs, but where the second coronavirus wave will take us is yet to be seen.Net borrowings at 3 October were £70m below last year’s level, at £1,329m. That reflects pub disposals and government support, but it suggests the company is in a sufficiently strong state of liquidity. There should be around £230m coming from the transfer of Marston’s Beer Company to the firm’s joint venture with Carlsberg too.Sadly, recently escalating restrictions on the pub trade are resulting in redundancy for more than 2,000 furloughed workers. And there are clearly some tough months ahead for Marston’s and the rest of the sector, with no end in sight yet for the stock market crash.A recovery investment? I think Marston’s will survive just fine. But even without a pandemic, I’ve never been tempted by the pub business. Competition is fierce, differentiation is almost non-existent. And I just don’t see any wonderful companies in the sector. See all posts by Alan Oscroftlast_img read more

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The current stock market rally has lifted the prices of many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares. However, it’s still possible to buy a wide range of dirt-cheap UK shares that could make strong gains in 2021 and in the coming years.As such, an investor aged 40 who has no retirement savings may be able to generate impressive returns over the long run. In doing so, they could benefit from a likely rise in the stock market to new record highs as it recovers from the 2020 stock market crash.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…Identifying the best dirt-cheap UK sharesDeciding which dirt-cheap UK shares to buy in this stock market rally could be a crucial decision in determining an investor’s future financial prospects. Some companies may prove to be value traps. In other words, they trade at cheap prices for good reason.This could be because they have weak financial positions or a poor strategy that’s unable to adapt to fast-paced economic changes. Either way, they may not deliver share price growth in a stock market recovery over the coming years.As such, identifying solid businesses with valuations that don’t take into account their recovery potential could be a shrewd move. For example, companies such as GSK, Barclays, Taylor Wimpey and Tesco currently trade on valuations that appear to be relatively attractive. They’ve all made improvements to their strategies, financial situations and competitive positions over recent years. And that may mean they can outperform the FTSE 100 in the coming years.Beating the FTSE 100 in a stock market rallyDirt-cheap UK shares could outperform the FTSE 100 in a long-term stock market recovery. Investors who’ve purchased high-quality businesses while they trade at low prices have historically generated impressive returns. After all, buying any asset for considerably less than it is worth opens up greater potential for capital appreciation in a subsequent recovery.For example, a diverse portfolio of cheap shares is likely to have had greater capital appreciation potential. Certainly after bear markets such as the 1987 crash, the dot com bubble and the global financial crisis. And, while stock markets have made gains of late, there are opportunities to follow a similar strategy today.Investing today from a standing startInvestors who’ve no retirement savings could benefit from buying dirt-cheap UK shares today. If they’ve a long-term outlook, they may experience gains resulting from a likely long-term stock market rally.Even if they only match the returns of the wider stock market, a regular investment could add up to a surprisingly large portfolio in the long run. For example, investing £250 per month at the same rate as the FTSE 100’s 8% past annual returns would produce a portfolio valued at almost £240,000 within 25 years. This could make a real difference to an investor’s retirement outlook. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

RBS 6 Nations: Lions Watch – Round 3

first_img Exorcising the demons: Adam Jones has played well enough to earn a chance to tour again with the LionsBy Alan DymockTHE FURTHER we wade into the 6 Nations the clearer the Lions picture becomes. After the latest matches, Rugby World’s Round 1 picks of Lion O’Driscoll, Owen Farrell, Stuart Hogg, Leigh Halfpenny and Joe Launchbury are all still in the mix. However, other players are putting their hands up.Adam JonesIn the mixer?: The Tullow TankA matter of minutes before Dan Cole was given a torrid time by the French scrum, the generously hirsute Jones was getting torn into the Italian pack featuring the not inexperienced, Martin Castrogiovanni and Andre Lo Cicero. He not only laid down a marker for Lions inclusion, but he presented a strong case to be Warren Gatland’s go to man at tight head.It could be suggested by some that Cole’s ability to disrupt opposition rucks and turn ball over that sets him apart, but that man Jones just keeps rumbling on.Lions 2013: On the planeChris RobshawDespite his many detractors, Robshaw keeps performing. Game after game, he links and leads, carrying strongly at close quarters. The talk of the number on his back is getting tiresome, but he is playing so well that it does not really matter what his number is. The talk will eventually fade.Do not underestimate what a man used to winning can bring to a squad. He may not start and he may not be a throwback loosie, but he should surely be a tourist. There is still time for him to prove he can be more than that, too.Lions 2013: On the planeAlex CuthbertThe Cardiff Blue is a try scorer. That is something that cannot be ignored. His pal George North is moving and shaking, interesting tacklers and churning up fields, but Cuthbert is dotting down domestically and in the Six Nations.The British Isles actually have a lot of wing talents to choose from, and North will likely go to Australia too, but at the moment Cuthbert is a serious contender for the starting XV. LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 23: Chris Robshaw of England breaks through the french defen se during the RBS Six Nations match between England and France at Twickenham Stadium on February 23, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by Shaun Botterill/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Lions 2013: Awaiting taxi to the airportLikely tourist: Chris Robshaw has had few equals so farKelly BrownThe Scotland captain currently has a face like a burst pavement, having been thrown at the feet of so many Irishmen at the weekend. However, he is leading the 6 Nations with more tackles (43) and more turnovers (7) than anyone else, even the great Thierry Dusautoir.With success possible with Saracens in Europe and the Aviva Premiership, and with him putting in an impressive shift for Scotland, he may be the ideal candidate for a gruelling tour and a trusty confidant for whoever is selected to captain the squad.Lions 2013: Awaiting taxi to airportSean O’BrienThe Tullow Tank is always caught up in the same argument as Robshaw: “Is the number on his back the right one?”However, he is a destructive ball carrier with more hit ups than anyone else in the championship, and is capable of setting up tries. He just needs to back it up with more than one showing in isolation.Lions 2013: Awaiting taxi to airportGeoff ParlingEngland’s bearded warrior is having a mightily. He may not have as many lineout takes as Donnacha Ryan (14) but his 12 takes are impressive, and he keeps beating away at the heart of the England pack, making tackles like a breakaway. There is nothing flash or pretentious about Parling, but he gets the job done. Give him a cause and he will fight for it, even if he is not meant to be integral to proceedings.Lions 2013: On the planelast_img read more

On This Day: Revolutionary War Ends

first_imgOn This Day in History: September 4th, 1783Treaty of Paris signedFrom The History ChannelThe American Revolution officially comes to an end when representatives of the United States, Great Britain, Spain and France sign the Treaty of Paris on this day in 1783. The signing signified America’s status as a free nation, as Britain formally recognized the independence of its 13 former American colonies, and the boundaries of the new republic were agreed upon: Florida north to the Great Lakes and the Atlantic coast west to the Mississippi River.The events leading up to the treaty stretched back to April 1775, on a common green in Lexington, Massachusetts, when American colonists answered King George III’s refusal to grant them political and economic reform with armed revolution. On July 4, 1776, more than a year after the first volleys of the war were fired, the Second Continental Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence. Five difficult years later, in October 1781, British General Charles Lord Cornwallis surrendered to American and French forces at Yorktown, Virginia, bringing to an end the last major battle of the Revolution.In September 1782, Benjamin Franklin, along with John Adams and John Jay, began official peace negotiations with the British. The Continental Congress had originally named a five-person committee–including Franklin, Adams and Jay, along with Thomas Jefferson and Henry Laurens–to handle the talks. However, both Jefferson and Laurens missed the sessions–Jefferson had travel delays and Laurens had been captured by the British and was being held in the Tower of London. The U.S. delegation, which was distrustful of the French, opted to negotiate separately with the British.During the talks Franklin demanded that Britain hand over Canada to the United States. This did not come to pass, but America did gain enough new territory south of the Canadian border to double its size. The United States also successfully negotiated for important fishing rights in Canadian waters and agreed, among other things, not to prevent British creditors from attempting to recover debts owed to them. Two months later, the key details had been hammered out and on November 30, 1782, the United States and Britain signed the preliminary articles of the treaty. France signed its own preliminary peace agreement with Britain on January 20, 1783, and then in September of that year, the final treaty was signed by all three nations and Spain. The Treaty of Paris was ratified by the Continental Congress on January 14, 1784.For more information on this day in history, go here.

RRS Discovery awarded £50,000 in honour of explorer Henry Worsley

first_img The Headley Trust has awarded £50,000 to the Dundee Heritage Trust for the Royal Research Ship Discovery, in memory of explorer Henry Worsley who died last year.The funds will be used for Dundee Heritage Trust‘s critical conservation work on the RRS Discovery: Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic expedition ship.Worsley died in January 2016 after falling 30 miles short of a 940-mile solo walk across Antarctica. He was following in the footsteps of his hero, Ernest Shackleton, whose Antarctic expeditions included one with Scott on RRS Discovery.RRS Discovery, now docked in Dundee, has been undergoing critical restoration work to its masts and rigging through a specialist shipbuilding company in Gloucester. The restoration project will cost approximately £350,000, for which a major fundraising drive is currently underway including the Trust’s first crowdfunding campaign last November which raised more than £40,000. The masts and rigging will be back on Discovery in time for the summer.Paul Jennings, executive director of Dundee Heritage Trust, said:“We are extremely grateful to The Headley Trust for awarding us this money, which will go a long way towards helping us with our current rigging conservation project, and to improving the whole visitor experience. The fact that the money was awarded to us in honour of Henry Worsley, as intrepid an explorer as Scott and his crew, makes it poignant, yet fitting.”  81 total views,  1 views today Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
