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. World markets have been so volatile that company valuations and prospects (in the near term at least) are changing on an almost daily basis.Many lowly-rated FTSE 100 stocks have got even cheaper. Meanwhile, a number of blue-chips I previously felt were too richly valued are now trading at what I believe are buyable levels. But there are also stocks across the spectrum where I still see material downside risk.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…I’ve used the weekend to review the state of play at some of my favoured super-cheap stocks and buyable higher-valued businesses, as well as at some of those that have so far remained on my avoid list. Here’s my take on a number of these stocks.Super-cheap stocksThe travel and leisure sector has been extremely hard hit by the impact of the spread of Covid-19. Budget airline easyJet‘s shares have crashed 48%, while cruise ship operator Carnival‘s have sunk 61%. Both are trading at single-digit P/Es on their historic earnings. However, it’s all about near-term survival right now.I’ve been positive on these two stocks based on a few simple metrics pointing to their relatively strong balance sheets and liquidity. Having caught up on recent more sophisticated assessments by better-resourced and smarter analysts than me, I’m heartened to maintain my view of easyJet and Carnival as long-term ‘buys’ with high-reward potential.Buyable higher-valued businessesThe new low point of the market crash on Thursday brought several highly-valued blue-chips into my buyable zone. Notably, Rightmove (share price 516p, forward P/E 23.5), Experian (2,145p, 23.5), Hargreaves Lansdown (1,211p, 20.0), and Sage (560p, 18.2).Despite rallies of up to 9% on Friday, these four remain ‘buys’ for me at their somewhat higher end-of-week valuations: Rightmove (537p, 24.5), Experian (2,145p, 24.1), Hargreaves Lansdown (1,320p, 21.8), and Sage (582p, 18.9).Triple whammy of downside riskAstraZeneca is one FTSE 100 stock, whose share price hasn’t fallen far enough to attract me, as I explained in a recent article. Scottish Mortgage Trust (LSE: SMT) is another, as I’ll explain here.The most recent factsheet from SMT shows its top 10 holdings at 31 January. Tech-based NASDAQ-listed companies are prominent: Tesla (10.3% of the portfolio), Amazon (8.6%), Illumina (5.9%) and Netflix (2.5%). China tech giants Alibaba (6.2%) and Tencent (5.8%) are also in there. The top 10 stocks account for 52% of the portfolio.As you can see below, the trust has performed relatively well between 31 January and 12 March — the latest date of its published net asset vale (NAV). 12 March G A Chester | Monday, 16th March, 2020 | More on: SMT center_img — — NAV 31 January 513p (2.2%) Share price (& discount to NAV) “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” G A Chester has no position in any of the shares mentioned. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., Amazon, Netflix, and Tesla. The Motley Fool UK has recommended AstraZeneca, Carnival, Experian, Hargreaves Lansdown, Rightmove, and Sage Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The share price has fallen a little more than NAV, with the discount modestly widening from 1% to 2.2%. But what are we to make of the much greater fall (-16.2%, as I’ve calculated it) of the top 10 holdings?A weakening of sterling against the dollar likely accounts for part of it. However, I also suspect there’s been no revaluation of SMT’s sizeable unlisted investments (19.4% of the portfolio at 31 January). As a rule, valuations of these are only reviewed every quarter.I see a triple whammy of downside risk. That includes a hefty de-rating by the market of many of SMT’s still-heroically-valued listed stocks like Tesla, write-downs of the valuations of its unlisted investments (due to the fall in the values of listed benchmark comparators), and the share price moving to a much wider discount to NAV.

Premier League talking points

first_img WILL THERE BE A EUROPA LEAGUE HANGOVER? The Premier League has only two representatives in this season’s Europa League: Liverpool and Tottenham. Both are presented with fine opportunities to prove the much-maligned competition need not disrupt a team’s domestic ambitions – and both have big squads so can rotate to avoid fatigue. Spurs travel to Swansea while Liverpool are at Everton for the Merseyside derby and while both are difficult fixtures, Thursday’s European exertions should not be a valid excuse for potential defeat. Press Association Sport’s Declan Warrington takes a look at the main talking points in the Premier League this weekend. IS THE RACE FOR THE TITLE A TWO OR THREE-HORSE RACE ? The one potential antidote for Arsenal’s appalling start to their Champions League campaign is domestic success. Arsene Wenger’s team on Sunday host current leaders Manchester United – and while there is little doubt Manchester City are title favourites, United appear their most likely competitors. If Arsenal win they will go level with Louis van Gaal’s team – but if they lose they will be six points behind them which, as Chelsea will learn, is a significant deficit at this stage of the season. HOW GOOD ARE LEICESTER? Claudio Ranieri’s appointment as Leicester manager meant they were considered among the favourites for relegation. Winning their opening two league fixtures suggested they need not worry, but since then they have won only once in five. They travel to Norwich on Saturday and, should they lose, the hosts – and potentially others – will join them on 12 points. Leicester are in the group of teams simply happy to avoid relegation and will be hoping to stay clear of those at the bottom. CAN CHELSEA FINALLY BUILD SOME MOMENTUM? Jose Mourinho’s team have secured some encouraging victories among some very uncharacteristic disappointing defeats. If they cannot shake this inconsistency soon, it will be damaging enough to mean that only a truly outstanding run will be capable of rescuing the campaign. After losing at Porto, they host Southampton. If the Blues struggle, their fans will fear the worst. HAS THERE BEEN A SHIFT IN POWER ON MERSEYSIDE? Liverpool’s struggles and the pressure on boss Brendan Rodgers are no secret – and are not helped by the impressive start to the season made by Roberto Martinez’s Everton. There is a suspicion that the Reds’ decline, coupled with the improvement witnessed by a Ross Barkley-inspired Everton, has made Merseyside’s traditional power the weaker of the two. Victory for Everton in the derby on Sunday will go some way to confirming that – and might even result in Rodgers being sacked. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
