Why the BT share price could be the top FTSE 100 performer in 2020

Why the BT share price could be the top FTSE 100 performer in 2020 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images. Making a capital gain from investing in a stock usually comes from two ways. Either you buy into the stock when it is rallying and piggyback on the success it is currently enjoying, or you buy into the stock when it is falling and hold it until the company’s fortunes turn around.The latter is a case in point for the share price of BT (LSE: BT-A) at the moment. The stock has been falling for most of the past five years, trading from just under 500p in 2014 to closing yesterday at 185p. So, is it cheap enough to warrant an investment on the premise of a rally this year?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…Election worries goneAt the back end of last year, the concern with BT was that under a potential Labour Government, broadband could be nationalized. The implications of this (particularly on BT’s subsidiary Openreach) would have been far reaching and would have likely hindered efficiency and profitability. However, with the Labour party losing ground in the December election, this concept has been firmly shelved, which should give investors confidence that BT will remain as a public company, serving shareholders’ best interests.“Global transformation”Also in recent news is the progress seen from what BT calls its “global transformation” project. Think of it as a restructure, with the focus shifting towards new technology (e.g., cloud and security services). To this end, in late December it announced the sale of its Spanish operations, including 5,600km of fibre optics. While still subject to regulatory approval, this is a win-win for BT. It raises funds from the sale to move into fresh projects, while still allowing it to access the infrastructure sold and be a supplier of products to the new owners. Overall, this deal, once completed, could be a real boost to the company share price as investors see the benefits.Buy in from the topI always like to take note of the share dealings of the senior management of any firm, which much be disclosed to the public. Investors often get a sense of management’s sentiment from this information – take the example of Uber, which received a great deal of negative press in December when many members of management sold a huge amount of stock as soon as the IPO lock-in period ended. This caused a lot of investors to follow suit.Last week it was reported that BT CFO Simon Lowth bought around £800,000 worth of stock just after the election and the Spanish sale mentioned above. This was not part of a bonus or compensation, this was of his own free will. The man in charge of the numbers (as CFO) is personally putting his money on the line, which gives me confidence that we could see a share price rally.On the basis of these three developments in the past month, I recommend looking into BT as a potential top performer this year. 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.

Prop Charlie Faumuina sidesteps wing Tu Umaga-Marshall

first_imgThursday Mar 3, 2011 Prop Charlie Faumuina sidesteps wing Tu Umaga-Marshall Yesterday we had a look at two great moments from a recent Six Nations match as two players did things that aren’t the norm for their position. This clip, from a classic Super Rugby game two weeks ago, follows the same premise.The game in question was the hard hitting, closely contested Blues vs Crusaders match, where the former came away 24-22 in a match that had a high tempo and bruising collisions throughout. If you missed it, some of the tries are included in last week’s Pick of the WeekADVERTISEMENT, and the hits were put together in a neat compilation that you can view again here.This moment is one that will be enjoyed by front rowers the world over, as Blues replacement prop Charlie Faumuina got the ball out wide and rather than stick the head down to take the contact, decided he’d have a go against Crusaders wing, Tu Umaga-Marshall.The inside-out was superb, as he not only beat Umaga-Marshall but the hapless winger couldn’t even get a hand on him. You can be sure that it was brought up in the pub after the game, and now with this video, will live long in the memory and make a great addition to the archives on here, that feature more than a few great moments from the heftier guys in a team.One such moment that comes to mind is when John Afoa, also of the Blues, had a blinder against the Force a few years back in the Super 14. In that case Afoa was catching high balls, stepping, and beating players on the outside. Brilliant stuff. :: Related Posts :: Super Rugby Pick of the Week – Round 1 The big hits from the Blues vs Crusaders classic Blues Prop John Afoa playing like a back (2008) Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Stephen Ferris talks about his forced retirement from the game

first_imgThursday Jun 5, 2014 Stephen Ferris talks about his forced retirement from the game Ulster and Ireland flanker Stephen Ferris, who announced his retirement from the game earlier this week, spoke to Ulster Rugby TV about what the future holds. The 28-year-old won 35 caps for Ireland and made 106 appearances for Ulster. The announcement press release is as follows: He represented the national team at the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand and played in all five games of Ireland’s 2009 Grand Slam success.  That same year he was selected for the British and Irish Lions Tour of South Africa and scored two tries before injury prevented him from claiming a Test place. He won his last cap for Ireland, against England, in the RBS 6 Nations in March 2012.Ferris, a graduate of the Hughes Insurance Ulster Rugby Academy, made his debut for Ulster as a substitute against Border Reivers in 2005 aged just 20. He quickly made an Ulster starting place his own and was named Ulster’s player of the year in 2006.In 2012 he was man-of-the-match in the Heineken Cup Quarter-Final win over Munster and was instrumental as Ulster made the final for the first time since 1999.Ferris suffered an ankle injury against Edinburgh in the RaboDirect PRO12 in November 2012 and spent 16 months on the sidelines. He made his return as a substitute against Scarlets in March and played three more games for Ulster. His final appearance for the Province was in the Heineken Cup Quarter-Final against Saracens at Ravenhill.Commenting on his retirement, Ferris said: “It is every young rugby player’s dream to represent their Province and their country and I have been enormously privileged to have done both.“I have shared a pitch with so many talented players over the past nine years and I want to thank my team-mates at Ulster and Ireland for the support that they have given me.“I also want to thank the IRFU as well as the strength and conditioning coaches and medical team at Ulster Rugby, for all their hard work, patience and backing over the past year and a half.“Finally, I would like to thank my family – my mum Linda and my dad Robert who helped me on the journey from playing rugby as a young kid at Portadown to lining out for the British and Irish Lions. My girlfriend Laura has been and remains a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.“I have had a great career, met many wonderful people and I hang up the boots with no regrets.”Ulster’s Director of Rugby, David Humphreys, said: “I would like to thank Stephen for the outstanding contribution that he has made to Ulster Rugby.“We knew from the day and hour that he walked into the Academy that he was an exceptional talent. Through dedication and hard work he developed into one of the best forwards in the world game.“He has always played an important leadership role within the squad and he helped mentor and inspire others. While we are sorry to be losing Stephen, we recognise and celebrate the exceptional rugby career that he has had and wish him every success in the future.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
