Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust: is now a good time to invest?

first_imgScottish Mortgage Investment Trust: is now a good time to invest? RisksThere are plenty of risks to consider, of course.One risk is the trust’s heavy focus on the technology sector. Many tech stocks trade at high valuations currently. If this sector underperforms, SMT’s share price is likely to fall.The large position in Tesla is also worth mentioning. The trust has been reducing its position in the electric vehicle maker recently, but its position is still substantial.Overall though, the long-term risk/reward proposition looks attractive, to my mind. So, I’d be looking to take advantage of near-term share price weakness and investing while the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust share price is well below its 52-week highs. The last time I covered Baillee Gifford’s flagship investment trust, Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT) was on 20 June. At the time, the trust had been having a great run. It was up 30%+ year to date. However, I said that it wasn’t too late to invest.In hindsight, that was a good call. Since that article, SMT’s share price has risen another 25% or so. That’s a fantastic performance, especially when you consider that the FTSE 100 index is down nearly 10% in that time.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…Is Scottish Mortgage still a good investment today though? Stock market volatility is rising, and some of the major tech stocks that Scottish Mortgage has large positions in, such as Tesla and Amazon, are losing their momentum a little bit. Tesla, for example, is down more than 20% since its September highs. Meanwhile, Amazon is down about 15% since early September. What does this mean for SMT? Scottish Mortgage’s share price has pulled backThe share price has pulled back a little in the last few weeks, as a result of the weakness we’ve seen across the technology sector. In mid-October, SMT’s share price was close to 1,100p. Today however, it’s near 1,020p.I think this pullback could be a good buying opportunity for long-term investors. Of course, there’s a chance the share price could keep falling in the near term. Due to the high level of uncertainty related to Covid-19 and the US election, share prices in the technology sector could remain volatile for a while. However, given the strong growth in the sector, I’d expect technology stocks to continue rising sooner or later. So, investing in SMT now could be a smart move, in my view.Attractive long-term prospectsLooking at the Scottish Mortgage portfolio, I believe the long-term prospects remain attractive.Not only does the trust hold plenty of well-known tech giants such as Amazon, Alphabet, and Nvidia, but it also holds lots of up-and-coming tech stars such as HelloFresh, Zalando, and Transferwise. On top of this, it has plenty of exposure to Asian technology powerhouses such as Alibaba, Tencent, and Ant Financial.Given that the world is in the midst of a technology revolution, I see plenty of potential for growth in the long run. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Tencent  Edward Sheldon, CFA | Wednesday, 4th November, 2020 | More on: SMT 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.

Drought Solution for Biodiesel Industry

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Oct 1, 2012 SHARE This summer was the hottest on record according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the forecast for October could be much of the same: hotter than usual temperatures with less than normal precipitation. A major drought has affected much of the U.S. with Texas feeling the worst impact followed by Colorado, Missouri, Florida, New Mexico, Arkansas, Indiana, and Hawaii. With the heat and dry weather, concerns over biofuel production also began to heat up.Crop estimates from the United States Agricultural Department (USDA) predict that the corn harvest will be down around 13 percent and soy production down about 12 percent from 2011. Yet as the harvest continues, the U.S. is still estimated to have the eighth largest corn crop on record and the second largest corn crop globally.Genuine Bio-Fuel believes they have a technological solution for the biofuel industry to mitigate the negative effects the drought is having on the environment. The company says that unlike other biodiesel production technologies that use water for washing fuel, their manufacturing process does not use water and therefore there is no need to dispose of contaminated water.“Our patent pending manufacturing and cleaning processes were designed with the environmental impact in mind. We believe creating green energy should not compromise the safety of our environment,” said Jeff Longo, Executive Vice President of the company.Genuine Bio-Fuel produces biodiesel from waste vegetable oil, used cooking oils and other waste feedstocks but does not use soy or other crops that have been impacted by the drought. The weather has caused higher prices for corn and soybeans and this has caused some plants across the U.S. to reduce production and or go temporarily offline. The company believes that their technology is a good solution for other biodiesel producers from both an economic standpoint and an environmental standpoint.Source: Joanna Schroeder at www.domesticfuel.com Home Energy Drought Solution for Biodiesel Industry Facebook Twitter Drought Solution for Biodiesel Industry Previous articleFFA National Convention this Month a Time to GrowNext articlePork Producers Can Take Steps to Ready for Flu Season Andy Eubanklast_img read more

NTO robotics team competing this weekend

first_imgHub City Regional 2018.First Robotics Competition. Twitter After a rebuilding year, the George H.W. Bush New Tech Odessa robotics is competing today and Saturday at the Hub City Regional Competition of the FIRST Robotics Competition in Lubbock.Richard Lindner, the New Tech robotics team mentor, said the squad is sponsored by SM Energy.Chris Caddel, regional director for West Texas of FIRST, said there are about 1,000 students competing on 41 teams today and Saturday from Mexico, Colorado, Texas and Kansas to name a few.FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.” From left, 17-year-old Jade Green and 16-year-old Hailie Shook talk about their project. Robotics students at George H.W. Bush New Tech Odessa are in a robotics competition today and Saturday. Facebook Slap Your Mama It’s So Delicious Southern Squash CasseroleFoolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinSmoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay OCA top 2 were ESL students Registration set for engineering camp The robots range from 50 to 60 pounds to 120 pounds. Students compete in an athletic style game and six teams at a time compete. This year has a video game theme, but Caddel said new themes are developed every year.The challenge for the Hub City Regional contest was announced in January and students have six weeks from that time to work on the robot.After that, the robot is sealed up in a plastic bag with a numbered tag on it, but they are allowed to work on a certain part of the robot that is outside of that. The 10 students on the team have named their robot Frankenlift. The robot is a little more than 5 feet tall.If all goes well, the group moves on to the world championships April 18 through April 21 in Houston.Seventeen-year-old junior Christopher Ramirez said the programming stands out; the design is good, so he is confident the group will do well.Ramirez said the team appropriated spare parts from “anywhere and everywhere.”“We figured out what worked and put them all together and made sure the design worked through and then tested it over and over and over. If it failed we tested it again,” he added.Lindner said something that’s challenging about this competition is that the robot doesn’t come out of a kit.“Every year the thing that’s the same is the driving part of the robot and the circuitry, but it’s still complex. It’s not really a kit you’d gather in your living room. The rest of it is just made out of raw materials; just aluminum and motors and wiring and they just figure it out on their own, so it really is just a real engineering challenge for the kids,” Lindner said.Sixteen-year-old junior Hailie Zundt brought 17-year-old junior Jade Green into the group. Green said you don’t have to be particularly good at math or science to be on the team.“As long as you’re pretty creative and you have good ideas and you share with the group and you’re good at building things … you could probably do it,” Green said.She added that she enjoys all the trial and error and how students get to see what works and what doesn’t and put things together that you probably wouldn’t think would go together.Ramirez said he enjoyed watching everything evolve from nothing to what the team has now. He added that the team logged about 30 hours over six weeks to put the robot together.Lindner said the team didn’t compete last year because one of their key members had gone off to MIT.At the beginning of the year, before the robotics season kicks off in January, those interested in being on the team meet once a week to see what their skills are and talk about ideas. Once the season starts, they meet every day after school, but Lindner said it doesn’t add up to that much because some of the students work and have other obligations.Lindner said the students are a “very hardworking group.”“I think it’s very challenging to do this complex of a project with such a small group,” he said.He added that they have participated in events where there were teams of 40 or 50 students sponsored by large corporations.“This is truly done 100 percent by our students and that’s what it’s supposed to be. This is truly a student-run enterprise,” Lindner said.More Information Pinterest 17-year-old Jade Green talks about their project. Robotics students at George H.W.

Olympian Shawn Johnson tests positive for COVID-19 during pregnancy

first_imgFebruary 2, 2021 /Sports News – National Olympian Shawn Johnson tests positive for COVID-19 during pregnancy FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPaul Archuleta/Getty ImagesBy KATIE KINDELAN, ABC News (NEW YORK) — Olympic gold medal gymnast Shawn Johnson, who recently announced she is pregnant with her second child, revealed Sunday that she has tested positive for COVID-19.Johnson, also mom to 15-month-old daughter, Drew Hazel, shared in a note posted on her Instagram stories that she had tested positive, admitting the diagnosis made her “nervous.”Explaining more about why the positive result made her nervous, Johnson wrote on Instagram, “1: I don’t want to get my family sick. 2: I have asthma and have had it my entire life so this scares me a little extra. 3: had a very close family member fight for his life last month while battling Covid so it’s a serious topic of concern/hits home in our household.”Johnson also wrote that her body is “just exhausted” after also spending the past two weeks caring for Drew as she battled RSV, a respiratory virus.“So far, I have a cough, terrible sore throat and headache. Fatigue for sure but… that’s pregnancy haha,” Johnson wrote about her own symptoms.Johnson and her husband, Andrew East, just announced their pregnancy last month.In the announcement video shared on the couple’s YouTube page, East recalled how he tested positive for COVID-19 just days after finding out Johnson was pregnant.“We were in this time of celebration and we wanted to tell her parents and our friends, but then I ended up having to self-isolate,” he said, calling it “not the ideal situation.”In announcing her own COVID-19 diagnosis, Johnson said she too is isolating and shared a message for other people, telling them to “wash your hands.”“Not looking for any kind of pitty [sic] party. Just a reminder to take care of yourself. Drink an extra water tonight and wash your hands,” she wrote.Even now, nearly one year into the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S., many questions remain about how pregnant people are impacted by COVID-19.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shared data showing that pregnant people infected with COVID-19 are at an increased risk for “intensive care unit admission, invasive ventilation, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and death,” compared to nonpregnant people.Health experts say pregnant people need to continue to remain on high alert when it comes to COVID-19 by following safety protocols, including face mask wearing, social distancing and hand washing.
