Michael Baxter | Thursday, 16th January, 2020 | More on: BOO Data is the new oil, or so they say. If that is right, then Boohoo (LSE:BOO) has been striking new oil with a frequency that other companies can only envy. It was the Economist magazine that first described data as the new oil. Ever since then, the phrase has gained popularity. Digital technologies lie behind the development and digital-related working practices are closely linked. Boohoo is a master of all.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…The Boohoo share price has been on quite a ride. The shares are up 15% over the last month, by 80% over the last year and have increased 12-fold over the last five years.Some question whether it can continue, whether Boohoo, with its whopping great P/E ratio of 75 is overpriced. This point of view gained more support when it emerged recently that Booboo, with net assets worth around £300m, had a higher market valuation than Marks and Spencer with net assets worth £2.6bn, I don’t agree with this view though, because I don’t think the critics understand the value of data.The importance of dataLet me illustrate the point. Marks and Spencer recently admitted it had bought too many tight fitting jeans and chinos. There is a fundamental problem here. The retailer, with its 900+ stores across the UK, has to buy goods at scale in order to supply those stores.Boohoo also buys at scale but because it focuses on selling online, it is not so encumbered. It can match consumer demand more precisely, in part because it can apply lean stock control systems — the need to have full store shelves to entice customers in does not apply to it.There is an even bigger reason why Boohoo is more likely to get its buying right. It approach can be described by the mantra of test, repeat, fail fast and learn. Data is core to this.The company is expanding and has practically doubled the size of its ‘C-Suite’ (individuals with the word chief in their job title) without becoming top-heavy. Boohoo’s big opportunity lies overseas. It holds a tiny 0.4% market share of the US and EU online apparel market.With brands such as Karen Millen, Nasty Gal, BoohooMAN, PrettyLittleThing, Coast, and MissPap as well as the Boohoo label itself, its opportunity to gather data, test data and draw insights from that data grows. Add to the mix its mastery of digital marketing, in particular social media, and its business model remains compelling. One of the important points about data is that size really does matter. The optimal size of a data company is one that entails market monopoly. That’s why there is only one Facebook-type service. I am not saying Boohoo will grow to have a market monopoly, but I am saying that its optimal size is much greater than its current size, which is why I think the share price has got a lot more growth left in it.  See all posts by Michael Baxterlast_img read more

Novacyt shares have doubled in a month. Should you keep buying?

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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. French pharmaceutical firm Novacyt SA (LSE: NCYT) is on a roll, thanks to surging demand for its Covid-19 testing products. Novacyt’s share price has risen by 170% over the last month and is up by a staggering 5,900% so far this year.If Novacyt can use its Covid success as a launchpad for a broader product range, then I think the stock could still be worth buying at current levels. Today I’m going to explain what I’d do with Novacyt shares after this year’s gains.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…Sales growth over 900%Novacyt’s revenue rose by 902% to €72.4m during the first half of 2020. The group’s operating result was transformed from a loss of €660k in H1 2019 to a profit of €48.7m. That gives the business an operating profit margin of 66% for the first half of the year. That’s very high indeed.Reassuringly, Novacyt’s profits were backed by strong cash generation. Understandably, the firm saw a significant increase in inventory costs and money owed by customers. But if we strip these costs out, operating cash flow for the half year was €45.3m. That’s almost an exact match for operating profit. Good stuff.Novacyt soars on contract winsThe company is continuing to develop new Covid-19 testing products and recently launched a new antibody test.New contracts are also continuing to roll in. Novacyt shares rose sharply recently last week on news of a UK government contract win with a minimum value of £150m over the first 14 weeks. Total revenue over the first six months could reach £250m. There’s also an option for a second phase which might be even larger.It’s clear to me that Novacyt is profiting from being able to supply a market with strong demand and limited supply. I agree with the firm’s view that this strength is likely to continue into 2021, but I don’t expect this situation to last forever. History suggests that at some point demand will fall, or supply will improve. I suspect both.The company says it hopes to use the commercial relationships it’s built during the pandemic to commercialise new products. The board also expects to expand Novacyt’s product portfolio through acquisitions.Can Novacyt shares keep rising?Novacyt repaid all its debt during the first half of this year, ending the period with a net cash position of €19.7m. That’s good. But in my view, investors who want to hold the stock long term now have to trust that management will be able to redeploy this cash into equally profitable new opportunities, post-Covid.I admit that I don’t know much about Novacyt’s products and technology. But in my experience, small companies developing speculative new products often struggle to generate consistent growth.It’s worth remembering that until the Covid-19 pandemic came along, Novacyt had reported a loss every year since 2014. During that time, the share count rose from 4m to 47m, as the firm continually tapped shareholders for extra cash.Novacyt could receive a takeover offer and may well develop successful non-Covid products. But in my view, the easy money has already been made. Although Novacyt’s share price may continue to rise, I think it will come back down to earth at some point.I’d be tempted to take some profits at this point.

Clermont’s Jamie Cudmore on wine and winning

first_imgMaking a toast: Cudmore shows off his new range of Sin Bin wines from the Auvergne regionRW: Whose idea was it to call your label ‘Sin Bin’? JC: We wanted to poke fun at my disciplinary record and so that’s why we came up with the tongue-in-cheek name. But it’s good for me to create something for my life after the rugby. I’m nearing the end of my career and soon the cheques are going to stop arriving at the end of each month.RW: How does the 36-year-old Cudmore train differently to the 26-year-old one? JC: It’s about training smarter, not harder. Ten years ago I could do contact the whole week and still be fresh on a Saturday. Now I still work really hard on the technical details but I know which contacts to take a step back from during the week.RW: The Top 14 still has another two months to run. Can Clermont last the pace? JC: I think the boys are looking really good. We’re seeing a lot of the younger boys coming through, and some of the older players had some time off during the Six Nations so we’re building towards a crescendo. In the past we have sometimes struggled at this stage but the squad is really strong this year and there’s a great camaraderie.RW: Describe the camaraderie. JC: We spend enormous amounts of time together and we’re lucky to have that balance in the squad so we know when to joke around and when to work hard, and that’s because of the respect for each other that runs through the squad. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Happy man: Jamie Cudmore is loving life at Clermont and is still going strong at 36 Clermont lock Jamie Cudmore looks ahead to the European Champions Cup semi-final against Saracens and talks about his new wine labelcenter_img In his ten years at Clermont, Jamie Cudmore has become a cult figure for the Yellow & Blue faithful who know him as “le bûcheron” (the lumberjack). The Canadian second-row has recently signed a one-year extension with the club and his physical presence inspires team-mates while intimidating opponents. But underneath the rugged 6ft 5in exterior, 36-year-old Cudmore is something of a wine connoisseur and has recently launched his own label – Sin Bin wine, playing on his reputation as a player who’s received the odd red and yellow card in his time.Rugby World caught up with him ahead of Clermont’s European Champions Cup semi-final against Saracens on Saturday…Rugby World: Any inkling before the Saints game that Clermont were going to touch greatness? Jamie Cudmore: It’s hard to say that we knew it was going to work out as well as it did (Clermont beat Northampton 37-5). We trained really hard during the week and knew we were facing some serious competition, and we switched it on.RW: A lot of people were predicting Saints lock Courtney Lawes would do to Clermont what he did to France… JC: I don’t focus on that kind of stuff. The game is so fast, there’s so much to remember, so many calls to focus on, that I’m too busy fulfilling my role to think about opponents.RW: How long does it take you personally to get in the zone before a match? JC: Doesn’t take long. Perhaps a few years ago I would have got in game mode a day before but I find that’s too early now. So during the day of a game I’m a normal guy, spending it with the kids, just doing normal things. It’s only when I’m strapping my boots that it’s time to go.RW: How do you feel about your image as an enforcer? JC: I’m not too worried about how I’m perceived. It’s funny and I play up to it at times, the whole pantomime villain thing.RW: So you’re a bit of a wine buff on the side? JC: The concept of the wine came from my wife, Jennifer. She put the business plan together when she was studying her MBA at Oxford and we let it lie while we were growing a family, then last year she wanted to get back into work and we decided to do the wine. The wine is from down the road from where we live. So it’s Auvergne, it’s local, and that’s important because we love this region and we want the wine to reflect that. RW: What should we read into Saturday’s shock home defeat to Oyonnax? JC: Nothing should be read into it, other than we lost to a very strong and pragmatic team with 15 (Clermont) changes from the week before. As always Euro Cup week ramps (it) up. Everyone’s focused and we will be ready to conquer on Saturday!RW: Can you hit the heights against Saracens that you did against Saints? JC: We have to stay hungry and humble. It’s the hunger that makes a team continue to perform; hunger to win the scrum, the lineouts, to make the tackles, to win the breakdown. The hungriest team will win.last_img read more

Stop Trump’s war on im/migrants!

first_imgJuly 10 — The Trump administration’s war on im/migrant families continues. Some 3,000 migrant children are still separated from their parents, which the Department of Health and Human Services admitted on July 9.From May 7 to June 20, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency took migrant children from their parents’ arms at the U.S./Mexico border under the White House’s “zero tolerance” policy. This mandated that all adult immigrants crossing the border would be taken into federal custody and their children placed in detention facilities without them.The White House xenophobe in chief had to back down from this horrific “family separation” policy when a mass movement arose opposing it. Publicly, he reversed his order on June 20 not out of compassion — but because the “visuals” were bad for his public image.Federal Judge Dana Sabraw has ruled that all children separated at the border be reunited with their parents within 30 days of his June 26 order, and he decreed that all children under 5 years of age be returned to their parents by July 10. The government now claims that it can only locate 54 of the 102 children under 5 and asked for an extension of the deadline. to deliver a proposed timeline on July 10. On July 10, Judge Sabraw said these were “firm deadlines,” and threatened to penalize the government if it doesn’t comply.Children are being held in detention centers, many in terrible conditions, caged, alone and neglected, and scattered to 17 states. Some parents have been deported without their children, causing a number of them to join lawsuits against U.S. government agencies to regain custody. The reality is that many youngsters may never be reunited with their parents, and could even be adopted.Because immigrants are not entitled to due process, they are not provided with public defenders when they go to court, even if they are children. The absurdity of this policy is evident when toddlers must appear in court alone and a judge asks them if they understand immigration law!This callous disregard for migrant children has infuriated millions of people and spurred on activism — even acts of heroism.Outrage breeds resistanceOn July 4, a courageous woman, Patricia Okoumou, protested these inhumane detention policies by climbing partially up the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. An immigrant from the Congo, Okoumou told the Guardian newspaper that she feared being shot or tranquilized by police, who surrounded her for four hours. She said to officers, “My life doesn’t matter to me now, what matters to me is that in a democracy we are holding children in cages.” (July 7)Okoumou boldly told police, “You could shoot me the way you shot Claudia González and killed the trans woman,” alluding, first, to the 20-year-old Indigenous Guatemalan woman killed by the U.S. Border Patrol in Texas in June and, second, to Roxana Hernández, a Honduran immigrant who died a brutal death in ICE custody in May.Arrested and charged with three misdemeanors, Okoumou appeared in federal court on July 5. She sent a strong message that day wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan: “White supremacy is terrorism.” With legal help from Rise and Resist, Okoumou was released. Her next court appearance is Aug. 3.Protests against family separations continue in Texas border cities. Congressional delegations visiting immigrant detention facilities on July 9 were met by La Union del Pueblo Entero (LUPE) activists in McAllen and by Rio Grande Valley Equal Voice Network members in Brownsville. LUPE, Texas Civil Rights Project and other forces are staging daily protests and a hunger strike until July 17 in McAllen.‘Abolish ICE!’Demonstrations and encampments have been organized in front of Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities throughout the country. Police attacks have not stopped these actions, and calls to “Abolish ICE!” are only growing louder. Workers World Party has supported these protests.Meanwhile, activists continue to plague Trump’s political cohorts. A group confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell outside a Louisville, Ky., eatery on July 7, calling for ICE’s abolition. A few miles away, hundreds of people in Occupy ICE were demonstrating at the city’s ICE office, with the same message. An encampment had been going on there for several days.The 45th president campaigned on a program of racism and xenophobia. He started his election with racist propaganda against people from Mexico. In the vilest way, he slandered the peoples of Haiti and the African continent. With a sweep of his pen, he ended temporary protected status for hundreds of thousands of immigrants from countries oppressed by imperialism. And with a big assist from the U.S. Supreme Court, he secured a ban preventing immigrants from five majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S.While people across the U.S. are rightfully demanding the reunification of migrant families, it is essential to show solidarity with all immigrants who are targets of the racist Trump government.Houston organizer Gloria Rubac contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana Soybean Alliance Welcomes Two New Farmers to Board of Directors

Steve Phares of Albion, Ind., and Kevin Kelley of Brookston, Ind., joined six incumbents elected to the ISA board.ISA is also welcoming two new non-voting members in 2021.  Purdue professor Dr. Bernie Engel replaces the retiring Dr. Marshall Martin as the board’s liaison from Purdue. And, John O’Donnell, ADM Commercial Manager with the Frankfort Oilseed Processing plant, was added as an additional ex-officio member.Phares takes the position left by John Emmert, who passed away on Nov. 26, 2020, in ISA District 2. Emmert had planned to retire from the ISA board this year. C.J. Chalfant of Hartford City, Ind. was re-elected as a District 2 representative. The counties in District 2 include Adams, Allen, Blackford, DeKalb, Delaware, Grant, Henry, Huntington, Jay, LaGrange, Madison, Noble, Randolph, Steuben, Wayne, Wells and Whitley.Kelley replaces Joe Tuholski, who completed his nine years of service on the board in 2020. ISA board member Denise Scarborough of LaCrosse, Ind., was re-elected to another three-year term in District 1 along with Kelley. District 1 includes Benton, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Elkhart, Fulton, Howard, Jasper, Kosciusko, LaPorte, Lake, Marshall, Miami, Newton, Porter, Pulaski, St. Joseph, Starke, Tipton, Wabash and White counties.Newly elected board membersKelley, 51, grows seed rye, wheat, corn and popcorn in addition to soybeans on his farm in rural White and Tippecanoe counties. He and his wife, Amy, have three children: Grace, Ryan and Aidan.Kelley earned a bachelor’s degree in ag engineering from Purdue University in 1992, and he added a master’s degree in ag engineering from Purdue in 1995. After working as an ag engineer for three years, he returned to farm full-time in 1999. In addition to farming, he owns Kelley Engineering LLC.Involved in his community, Kelley serves as a board member of the White County Ag Association, and he is a board member and secretary on the Prairie Township Library Board. In the past, he has been a board member of the White County Farm Bureau.Kelley hopes to learn how checkoff dollars are used to help Hoosier farmers.“I want to be an advocate for the American soybean producer,” he said. “I want to grow professionally and as a farmer, and I’m looking forward to working with a great team. I don’t have an agenda. I just want to serve and contribute to the success of American agriculture.”Phares, 70, and his wife, Paula farm in rural Noble County with their son, Clint. Phares has been a full-time farmer since 1973. In addition to soybeans, he grows corn and hay, feeds steers and raises beef cattle and heifers. He recently retired from the dairy business.Phares is a four-year U.S. Air Force veteran. He has been involved in many organizations through the years. He is a member of the Indiana Holstein Association, Indiana Dairy Producers and Indiana Farm Bureau.
