first_img Image source: Getty Images. 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. 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.

Investing in crashing FTSE 100 stocks may not seem to be a good idea at the present time. Less risky assets such as Cash ISAs and gold may offer greater stability during what is a period of unprecedented uncertainty for the world economy.However, many FTSE 100 companies now offer wide margins of safety. Investors seem to have factored-in many of the risks facing the global economy. That means there may be recovery potential over the long term.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…With that in mind, here are two property-related companies that could be worth buying today and holding over the coming years.SegroFTSE 100 real estate investment trust (REIT) Segro (LSE: SGRO) has recorded a 16% drop in its share price since the turn of the year. The warehouse owner recently updated the market on its performance. And it acknowledged that coronavirus is likely to place pressure on the financial performance of many of its tenants.This may cause a further decline in the company’s shares. But as investors adapt to a potentially lower level of occupancy and profitability, the long-term outlook for the business seems to be sound. Consumers are increasingly purchasing various goods online. The result is that this may boost demand for modern warehouses. This could lead to rising rents for the business, as well as a high occupancy rate.Segro’s shares now trade on a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 1.1 following their recent fall. Yes, there are cheaper opportunities available elsewhere in the REIT sector. But the company’s stock price appears to include a wide margin of safety.With Segro set to experience improving operating conditions as demand for warehouse space increases, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business for the long term.Taylor WimpeyHousebuilders such as Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) are experiencing a highly challenging period at the present time. That is because the UK housing market is essentially on hold during the coronavirus outbreak. How long this situation lasts is a known unknown, but the company’s financial standing suggests that it is in a relatively strong position to overcome it.Of course, the housing market has experienced many booms and busts over recent decades. As a cyclical market, this enables long-term investors to capitalise on low valuations to benefit from subsequent recoveries.Although further difficulties could be ahead for the sector, factors such as low interest rates and government schemes such as Help to Buy could act as catalysts on the industry over the coming years. Limited housing supply may also be a contributing factor in the eventual recovery of the sector.Since Taylor Wimpey’s shares now trade on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 5.4, they seem to offer a wide margin of safety. Certainly, a drop in net profit this year is very likely. But with a strong financial position and the prospect of improving operating conditions, now could be a good time to capitalise on the sector’s weak near-term outlook through buying shares in Taylor Wimpey.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Soccio graduates, wraps up two years in Troy as exchange student

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Published 8:28 pm Friday, June 5, 2020 Email the author Giuseppe said coming to America, he didn’t know much about Alabama or even the South but his impression was that “every state in America is good.”He landed in New York in July 2018 and that was his first impression of the United States. Alabama was altogether different but the Freemans were welcoming and Giuseppe felt “at home.” He realized almost immediately that being in Alabama and in Troy was going to be a rewarding experience.Giuseppe enrolled at Charles Henderson High School and realized immediately that “school in America was different.” “American schools are more relaxed. Italian schools are strictly study, study and more study.” Latest Stories Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits ‘They all sacrificed so much’ The seniors of Pike Liberal Arts Class of 2020 came together one last time Thursday or their graduation ceremony. Pike… read more Skip Giuseppe Soccio has a contagious laugh and the obvious good-hearted humor that is the hallmark of Italian young men. But, unlike most Italians, Giuseppe speaks with a Southern accent.Giuseppe is an exchange student who came to Troy in a rather unusual way. Although Reyna Freeman’s Italian father didn’t require her to learn his native language, doing so became important to her. But, learning to speak Italian was not as easy as Reyna thought. To learn the language in a conversational kind of way, she needed to be immersed in the language. And, what better way than to host an exchange student from Italy?center_img Sponsored Content Book Nook to reopen Soccio graduates, wraps up two years in Troy as exchange student Print Article Giuseppe had a good year at CHHS and he quickly became Americanized. His English, which he began learning in elementary schools, was “perfect” and somewhere he learned to say, “Yes, ma’am and “no sir.”“A perfect Southern gentleman,” Reyna said with a smile.However, because of visa restrictions, Giuseppe attended Pike County High School his second year in Alabama. He is now a 2020 graduate of PCHS and graduated with straight A’s. He also took classes at Troy University where he also excelled.COVID-19 restrictions kept Giuseppe’s parents from being able to attend his high school graduation. However, PCHS made the necessary arrangements so that, via technology, Giuseppe’s parents could watch him walk across the stage and receive his diploma in real time.“I was excited and appreciative that my parents were able to see me receive my high school diploma,” Giuseppe said.Although he is excited to being going home, he is also sad to be leaving his Freeman family and Alabama.“Being here in Alabama has been a great cultural experience,” he said. “I will always remember my time here and I will come back.”Looking back on his two years in America, Giuseppe said he likes the social part of American life.And, he appreciates the opportunities to do more and be more.“I am a member of the USA Powerlifting Association and competed in meets in Birmingham,” he said with a smile. “I worked out in the gym and got stronger.”And, for a self-described “wiry” young man, Giuseppe can dead lift 500 pounds and with no sweat.Although Giuseppe had never held a football before, he was a kicker on the Pike County high school football team.  He attended his junior and senior proms and both are memorable.“All of high school was a cultural and learning experience.”His travels in the USA, include New York and California and closer to home, Pine Mountain, Mobile, Biloxi, all along the Gulf Coast.“We went to my host family’s cabin on a lake in Minnesota and that was a great time,” Giuseppe said. “We also went to Pennsylvania and to Gettysburg and that was a real learning experience. We saw the Alabama Memorial and that was special.”“Special” is the word that Giuseppe used to describe many of his experiences in Troy and across the USA. All in all, his two years in Alabama have been a cultural experience that will be invaluable as he moves into the next exciting chapter of his life.“My families have had opportunities to visit and know each other and we will continue to do so,” Giuseppe said. “I had planned to go home to Italy in June but now I have to wait because of the coronavirus.”And, that wait will give the Freemans and their exchange student a little more time together and, for all, “that’s a good thing.” By Jaine Treadwell You Might Like The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Fate stepped in. Reyna had the opportunity to host an Italian young man, Giuseppe Soccio, but there was no time to waste – or to talk it over with her husband, Conley Freeman. “You did what?” was his response.That was two years ago. Giuseppe almost immediately became a member of the Freeman family and will always be even though they are an ocean apart.
