7 share picks from Lord John Lee and how they’ve fared in 2020 so far

first_img105p Those five have sustained a resilient performance through the crisis. And the two big winners – Anpario and Treatt – will have offset losses in Lord Lee’s portfolio. Would I buy these stocks now? In all five cases, City analysts predict a robust business recovery. And I think all seven of the stocks in this article are serious candidates for my portfolio today. 670p In the run-up to the UK’s general election on 12 December 2019, well-known investor Lord John Lee was buying shares. And went on record in early January revealing some of the stocks he’d bought.A lot has happened since, including the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic. And the immediate prospects for many companies and their businesses changed as the year unfolded. There was also, of course, the stock market crash in the spring when the crisis hit the markets.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…But Lord Lee is known for his long-term approach to holding shares. So, how are those stocks faring? And are they worth buying now?Lord John Lee’s big-cap income investmentsLord Lee usually invests in small-cap shares and sticks with them as they grow. But just before the 2019 election, he invested in FTSE 100 insurance companies Legal & General and Aviva. At the time, they were both yielding more than 7.5%. And he said: “I wanted to park some money in big stocks that are easy to trade.”At the beginning of December 2019, the Legal & General share price was near 267p. Today, it’s at 256p, as I write, after bouncing back from its stomach-churning dive in the spring market crash. However, earnings dipped a little this year but the company hasn’t missed a beat with its annual dividend increases. Indeed, Legal & General has proved to be a resilient stock-pick by Lord Lee. Would I buy the stock now? Well, with yield still above 7%, I’d be happy to follow him into the share today.However, the outcome with Aviva, so far, hasn’t been as rosy. At the beginning of December 2019, the share price changed hands near 398p. Today, it’s near 320p. The share price, earnings and the dividend have all been casualties of the pandemic, but they’re all bouncing back now. And today, the forward-looking dividend yield stands near 7.8%.Would I buy Aviva now? Yes, I would. Financial stocks like these two are vulnerable to the ups and downs of the economy because of their cyclicality. However, I’m optimistic the world is set to recover economically from where we are now.Post-election top-up investmentsLord Lee said he added to some of his existing and smaller stock holdings “when the Conservative victory was assured.” The stock purchases included agricultural feed producer Anpario, and professional services company Christie. He also bought more shares in palm oil company MP Evans and airline services firm Air Partner. And in a long-standing favourite of his, flavours and fragrances business Treatt.This table shows how those stocks have performed through the difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. 94p Image source: Getty Images. share price on 26/11/20 Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge! 673p Gain/(loss) Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 47% MP Evans Anpario 88p 330p 72p 420p I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The greatest hookers of all time: Bismarck du Plessis

first_img Major teams: Free State Cheetahs, Natal, Sharks, Montpellier 

Country: South Africa
Test span: 2007-2015South Africa caps 79 (50 starts)
Test points: 55 (11T)Stuck behind the sizeable figure of skipper John Smit, Bismarck du Plessis only accrued two starts in the first 14 Tests of his career.While those cameos involved an appearance in the 2007 Word Cup final triumph over England, a year of frustration evidently fuelled a fire of ambition.When controversial Springbok head coach Peter de Villiers decided to shift Smit to tighthead in 2008, it was partly because du Plessis had outgrown his role as an impact replacement.Dynamic and abrasive with exceptional breakdown nous, the God-fearing farmer’s boy from Bethlehem in the Free State – who is also a qualified insurance broker – set about establishing himself as one of the most respected hookers on the planet.The 2009 series against the British & Irish Lions offered an impressive foundation, du Plessis playing all 80 minutes of the first two Tests and helping to carve out an unassailable 2-0 lead thanks to a pair of menacing, obdurate performances. Bismarck du Plessis ousted his captain John Smit, out of the South Africa hooker role in 2008, then dominated as one of the world’s best “For me, Bismarck is comfortably the best hooker in the world,” he says. “Nobody else can hold a flame to him. His throwing is outstanding, his scrummaging huge and his work-rate around the park immense.”For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A 32-29 defeat of New Zealand in Hamilton completed a hat-trick of wins over the All Blacks and added that season’s Tri-Nations title for the Springboks.Du Plessis has had elder brother Jannie for support the whole way. The pair debuted for South Africa in the same game against the Wallabies in 2007 and shared seven years together at the Sharks as well, both announcing they were to leave Durban in June 2015. Both have since joined French Top 14 side Montpellier, where they helped best Harlequins to clinch the European Rugby Challenge Cup.In recent times, Adriaan Strauss emerged as another international rival and red-mist moments brought Bismarck bans for alleged eye gouging and kicking during his career.According to Sharks coach Gary Gold however, du Plessis’s overall reputation is unblemished.

first_imgUK has 500,000 millionaires, say Prospecting for Gold A new research paper from prospect research and wealth specialists Prospecting for Gold Ltd reports that there are up to 500,000 millionaires in the UK. This figure is higher than previous estimates, such as that contained in Merrill Lynch & Capgemini’s World Wealth Report.This new estimate takes into account estimates of the wealth of company directors, shareholders, property owners and highly remunerated employees.The Wealth Intelligence Digest which contains the research is the first in a series of research papers on the nature of wealth in the UK.James Redhead, the author of the report, said: “The number of millionaires in the UK is always a statistic which fascinates people. We wanted to use all our factual information sources on wealth to produce our own detailed conclusion”.Prospecting for Gold have been collecting publicly available information on wealthy and influential individuals for 20 years, creating and developing the Wealth Intelligence Database.Prospecting for Gold hope the series will be of use to not-for-profit organisations in planning major donor fundraising, and to any organisation interested in UK wealth research.The full report ‘Wealth Intelligence Digest: UK Millionaires’ was released in December 2009 and can be downloaded free from the Resources section of Prospecting for Gold’s website.www.prospectingforgold.co.uk Tagged with: Prospect research Research / statistics Howard Lake | 4 January 2010 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  39 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Prince William to open Magdalen library

first_imgThe Duke of Cambridge will be visiting Oxford to open Magdalen’s recently completed Longwall Library. The Prince will come on May 11, spending his morning touring the facilities and officially opening them. For some students, like first-year Magdalenite Oliver Baldwin, this is an honour for the school. “I’m very excited about The Duke of Cambridge coming to open the new library”, Baldwin told Cherwell. “The Queen is a symbol of Britain and The Duke of Cambridge, as the future king, is a symbol of where Britain is going, always remaining relevant to each new generation.”The library has been under construction for more almost two years and was a multi-million pound renovation involving the building of a new wing and the complete gutting and refurbishment of the interior, allowing for more reading spaces and natural light. Since the library was closed, the college has been using a library tent, loving called the “Marquee” by the students.Current Magdalen JCR President Sam Sherburn hoped the Duke would see the value of the building. “I’ve talked about Magdalen’s New Library Project to more alumni than I care to remember across several Telethons” Sherburn said. “It is a fantastic project and it is great to see it open at long last. I hope that the Duke of Cambridge will be able to see for himself the hard work and dedication of those involved in the project– and those revising for their exams, for whom the New Library is a much-needed asset!”The funding drive involved raising £10.5 million, involving many donations from alumni and hours of work from current students in telethon and administrators, not to mention the thousands of hours of work by the construction company contracted to build it. This is why some are less than thrilled the Prince was chosen to open the library.“Prince William has made it to his current position simply by being born to a certain father” said first-year musician from Magdalen Ted Mair. “This appears to me as exactly the kind of cultural elitism that Magdalen, as part of the University of Oxford, should be discouraging. As an institution trying to open its gates to students from as many walks of life as possible, this choice of guest seems like a step backwards.”Others have pointed out that Magdalen has many influential and famous alumni who could have been chosen, while Prince William’s only connection to the school is his Great, Great Uncle attended but did not graduate.One source told Cherwell. “We have a great many Magdalen alumni who have achieved far more through their own endeavours than Prince William has by accident of birth. Why didn’t the college choose one of them?”The Duke will also be opening the Blavatnik School of Government and the Weston Library during his visit, and the Duchess of Cambridge will not be accompanying him for the visit.last_img read more
