These 2 FTSE 100 stocks grew more than 3,000% in the last decade! Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. These 2 FTSE 100 stocks grew more than 3,000% in the last decade! Here’s what I’d do now Image source: Getty Images. Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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.center_img Wow. Just wow. The best performing stock on the FTSE 100 over the past decade has grown by an incredible 3,200%, according to new research by wealth platform AJ Bell.If you are not impressed by that number, try this one instead.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…If you had invested £1,000 in this particular stock on January 1 2010, you would have had a whopping £32,000 by 18 December this year (with dividends reinvested), which might have made you feel better as you navigated doing that last minute Christmas shopping.Sporty stuffSo what is this mighty 30-plus bagger? A round of applause, please, for branded sportswear, fashion and outdoors retail specialist JD Sports Fashion (LSE: JD).Its performance is nothing short of phenomenal, given that this was such a tough decade for retailers, as shoppers abandoned the high street to spend yet more time in front of their screens, and price growth outpaced wages for most of the decade.Kicking yourself for missing out? You’re not the only one, my colleague Paul Summers wished he had bought this classy business too.JD Sports was relatively small beer at the start of the decade. Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, says that isn’t surprising, quoting legendary investor Jim Slater’s mantra that ‘elephants don’t gallop’: “The established giants of the FTSE 100 simply can’t grow fast enough to necessarily generate these sorts of meteoric returns,” Mould said.JD Sports only joined the FTSE 100 this summer but has continued its winning streak, rising another 38% in the last six months, lifting its market cap to almost £8bn.Obviously, the big money has now been made. If JD Sports rose another 3,200% in the next 10 years its market cap would hit £264bn, and although it is expanding its template globally with much success, I can’t see that happening.The JD Sports share price now trades at 23.5 times earnings, comfortably above the FTSE 100 average valuation of just over 18 times, but not massively pricey. There are signs of the inevitable slowdown, as earnings growth of 58% 55% and 32% in the three years to 2018 are set to fall to 17% in 2020 and 13% in 2021.That is still pretty good going, though. I’d buy and hold it for the next decade.Ashtead GroupThe second-best performing FTSE 100 stock over the same period was equipment rental firm Ashtead Group (LSE: AHT), close behind after growing a mind-boggling 3,110%. A repeat over the next decade would lift its market cap from £11bn to £353bn, so again, it ain’t gonna happen.Ashtead generates 90% of its revenues through its US subsidiary Sunbelt, so has benefited from the booming economy stateside. That may be a problem as the IMF predicts growth will fall from 2.4% this year to 2.1% in 2020, although US Federal Reserve rate cuts and a US-China trade deal may keep the party going a little while longer.The firm has increased its dividend every year for the last decade, so although the current yield of 1.8% seems low, you can brace yourself for plenty of progression. Especially since the payout is covered a massive 4.6 times by earnings.The Ashtead share price looks stupendously cheap at 11.7 times forward earnings, although again, earnings are slowing. After years of growth measured at more than 20% or 30%, we are looking at 13% and 9% over the next two years.At today’s valuation, it still looks a buy to me. Now roll on 2020. 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.

Scotland 32-26 France Talking Points from Murrayfield

first_imgFor the first, scored inside three minutes, he sprinted down the wing past Finn Russell and then cut inside to evade Stuart Hogg’s attempted tackle and touch down.Pure joy: Teddy Thomas celebrates his second try against Scotland. Photo: Getty ImagesThe second came when he kicked over Hogg, chased hard and as the ball bounced away from the retreating Greig Laidlaw it fell into Thomas’s path. He eagerly accepted the kind bounce of the ball and cantered over.He may not be the most solid of wings in defence but he certainly entertains with ball in hand. Expect more from him in this championship.Related: Who is Teddy Thomas?Wayward kicks At Twickenham yesterday, George Ford and Owen Farrell offered a masterclass in kicking out of hand. At Murrayfield we did not see the same. There was plenty of kicking, but much was not only inaccurate but it presented the opposition with chances.Related: England 12-6 Wales match reportFinn Russell is known for his speed of thought but sometimes he needs to take that second or two longer.He looked to send one first-half penalty deep into the French 22, took it quickly and sent it dead. Back they came for a France scrum close to halfway.On another occasion he kicked the ball straight out as he looked to gain territory and he missed touch with a penalty early in the second half too.On the whole both teams kicked too often to the opposition back three, giving them the possession and space to launch counter-attacks.Eyes on the prize: Stuart Hogg attacks the line for Scotland. Photo: Getty ImagesIn the second half it was interesting to see that Russell and Stuart Hogg opted to attack the line more often and this brought its own rewards in the penalties that Greig Laidlaw sent through the posts.Athletic FranceThe French are often criticised for not putting the same onus on fitness as other nations do. There have been tales of British and Irish players joining Top 14 clubs and being shocked by the lack of focus put into conditioning programmes.France No 8 Louis Picamoles even spoke about the improvements he made in terms of his fitness while at Northampton last season.Sebastien Vahaamahina looks to make ground against Scotland. Photo: Getty ImagesNow, though, there seems to be a new breed of athletic French forwards. The likes of Arthur Iturria, Sebastien Vahaamahina, Wenceslas Lauret and Yacouba Camara are comfortable in the loose as well as the tight – and add a different dimension when not simply used as carriers from close range. On target: Greig Laidlaw kicked 22 points against France. Photo: Getty Images Scotland – Tries: Maitland, Jones. Cons: Laidlaw 2. Pens: Laidlaw 6.France – Tries: Thomas 2. Cons: Machenaud 2. Pens: Machenaud 2, Serin 2. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Scotland 32-26 France Talking PointsThe boot of Greig Laidlaw guided Scotland to a memorable win over France at BT Murrayfield – only their third over Les Bleus since the tournament became the Six Nations.It was a nip-tuck affair, particularly in a frenetic first half that saw both sides show a lot of ambition in attack and score two tries apiece – Teddy Thomas with a brace for France, and Sean Maitland and Huw Jones crossing for Scotland.In the second half it all came down to the kicks – Baptiste Serin slotted two for France but Laidlaw was masterful as he continued to make the visitors pay for their infringements.It was a more balanced performance from Scotland than in last week’s defeat by Wales, although they will most likely need to improve further if they are to beat England in the Calcutta Cup in a fortnight.Here are the big talking points from the game…Laidlaw punishes French ill-disciplineFrance gave away far too many kickable penalties in the second half. Greig Laidlaw slotted six penalties in the second 40 to put Scotland in front as Les Bleus were continually penalised in their own 22.LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION OFFERSLaidlaw may not be considered as exciting a player as Ali Price, but his accuracy from the tee came to the fore and closed out a memorable win.Captain John Barclay highlighted afterwards how Scotland’s ability to play at tempo in that second period, forced the errors from France as the visitors couldn’t continually defend legally at the breakdown.Those teams yet to play France will pay close attention to the visitors’ penalty count. When Scotland put the pressure on in the French half, the players in blue were regularly pinged by John Lacey. In all they conceded 13 penalties to Scotland’s ten – but it was the position in which they conceded those penalties, deep in their own half, that proved decisive.France will need to improve their discipline – and particularly where they concede penalties – if they are to win games in this championship.Direct lineA problem area for Scotland recently has been their lack of powerful ball-carriers to get across the gain-line.In Wales last week they were criticised for going wide before going forward. Here there was a change in approach. Yes, they were still looking to go wide but they also had players looking to make yards through the middle.Grant Gilchrist was promoted from the bench to the starting line-up for this match and his red headguard regularly popped up as Scotland used carriers off rucks to gain those extra metres. The three starting front-rowers were also used effectively in this facet, particularly Simon Berghan, who made 12 carries. The Scots as a team achieved more penetration than they had in Cardiff.Fine line: Huw Jones dives over for Scotland’s second try. Photo: Getty ImagesThe best line of all came from Huw Jones in the 32nd minute. After the likes of Gilchrist had made ground into the French 22, Greig Laidlaw fed the ball to Jones and the outside-centre timed his run to perfection to cut between two French defenders on the angle.Teddy flairTeddy Thomas scored a fantastic try against Ireland last week and bettered that by crossing twice in the first half-hour here.

Aled Brew’s huge hit on Perpignan’s David Mele

first_imgTuesday Jan 24, 2012 Aled Brew’s huge hit on Perpignan’s David Mele Last weekend Newport Gwent Dragons were comfortably beaten by Perpignan in the Amlin Challenge Cup. There was a big tackle from Aled Brew that stood out though, and has since been requested on more than one occasion. While on Saturday the Dragons won convincingly, a week ago Perpignan were too good for them despite wing Aled Brew scoring just after half time to bring them back into the game.The Dragons are reportedly hopeful that Brew will stick around and sign a new deal to stay at Rodney Parade. The thinking is that his Wales ambitions will keep him there when his contract runs out, despite apparent interest from France, and Perpignan in particular.Brew wasn’t included in Warren Gatland’s Wales squad for the Six Nations however, leading to further speculation that he might look elsewhere. Dragons coach Darren Edwards quashed those fears though, stating that he believes Brew won’t give up that easily.“Aled has got a fighting attitude and he will keep on going. He was an outsider for the World Cup but didn’t accept it, kept going and got his reward. I know he won’t take this rolling down and hopefully it will be his performances with the Dragons that get him back into the Wales squad.“Aled is so valuable to our attacking game and now that Shane Williams is gone I just wish he was given a proper run. Only then would we be able to see if he can make the same impact on the international stage as he does for us,” he said.With hits like this one on David Mele, you’d think Brew will continue knocking on the door.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Rally against Milwaukee privatizing schools

first_imgSept. 21Photo: Kristen DonatSeveral hundred teachers, students, the Wisconsin AFL-CIO and other unions and community organizers marched Sept. 21 from the Milwaukee School of the Arts in downtown Milwaukee across the James E. Groppi Unity Bridge to the Forest Home Avenue School on the southside of Milwaukee. Their signs read in English and Spanish, “Public Education is a Right,” “No privatization” and “No Take Over.”Students walked with large puppets and other art that they had made highlighting a quality public education. There was also a brightly dressed band playing union tunes.When they arrived at Forest Home School, a rally was held including the featured speaker, John Stocks, the National Education Association president and the former executive director of the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state teachers’ union.Stocks called on those teachers, parents and students present to fight back against Gov. Scott Walker and the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce efforts to privatize the schools through the MMAC’s idea of a “recovery school district,” which would take so-called low-performing public schools and privatize them. He denounced similar efforts that occurred in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and are being proposed in Detroit and other districts. He described Milwaukee as “ground zero” for the privatization effort. And he called on everyone there to fight back against the governor’s efforts at privatization, saying “our beloved public education system is in jeopardy.”Other organizations present included Parents for Public Schools, Women Committed to an Informed Community, the Wisconsin Alliance of Excellent Schools, WI Bail Out the People, and teachers’ unions from Milwaukee, Racine, Madison and surrounding communities.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

That is how change can truly take place,” Cavins-Tull said.Midway through the discussion, current Mizzou student Melinda Oliver skyped-in and talked about inequality Mizzou students face and the lack of empathy they receive from university administration.“He [former University president Tim Wolfe] was very reactionary and wouldn’t interact with students of color unless he was forced to,” she said.After the Skype session, E.QU.A.L.I.T.Y. leaders divided the room and began small group discussions.They were given thought provoking questions and talked about: systematic and institutional oppression, making friends outside of their own ethnic groups and the effectiveness of Mizzou’s protests.Following the small group discussion, graduate student Myia Williams-Sanders provided ways that TCU can avoid having future racial tension.“I think there needs to be mandatory cultural sensitivity classes for all students, there should be more faculty members of color, there needs to be different forms of recruitment for students of color and more non-athlete students of color,” she said.Group picture of all students who attended and engaged in dialogue.E.Q.U.A.L.I.T.Y.
