Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” This week has seen many popular stocks take a tumble as coronavirus fears have escalated. The companies I’m looking at today have both fallen by around 15% over the last month.Both are well-respected engineering companies with strong track records. For this reason, I’m starting to think that the current weakness could be a buying opportunity, despite the risk that markets still have further to fall.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…HeadwindsFTSE 250 firm Meggitt (LSE: MGGT) makes sensors and braking systems for jet airliners. These products account for more than half the group’s revenue and enjoy a big market share. According to the company, its products are installed on about 73,000 aircraft today.Any slowdown in this business could be bad news. Unfortunately that’s what happened last year when the Boeing 737 MAX was grounded. The US manufacturer subsequently slowed and then suspended production of this aircraft.This has caused a lot of pain for many of Boeing’s suppliers. Meggitt is in a relatively strong position as it’s also a supplier to rival aeroplane manufacturers Airbus, Embraer and Bombardier. Outside civil aerospace, Meggitt also has a sizeable defence business, providing further diversification.Ready for lift-off?In its annual results today, Meggitt said that revenue rose by 9% to £2,276.2m in 2019, while pre-tax profit climbed 11% to £370.3m. It’s a respectable performance, but the shares are still down by nearly 5% today.I think the main reason for this is management’s warning that performance in 2020 will be influenced by the “uncertain timing relating to the return to service of the 737 MAX”. The coronavirus outbreak may also be a factor too, if it affects global air traffic growth.However, none of this is a surprise. Meggitt shares have already fallen by about 15% from their January peak of 700p. At about 565p (last seen), I think the stock is starting to offer much better value for long-term buyers.Meggitt’s finances look healthy enough to me. Cash generation is fairly good. The stock now trades on about 15 times forecast earnings, with a dividend yield of 3.3%. Although further falls are possible, I would consider buying at this level.Down 15% todayEven before the coronavirus outbreak hit the headlines, new car sales were falling in many countries. This situation has now got a whole lot worse. Recent trade press reports I’ve seen suggest that car sales fell by 92% in China during the first half of February. Nearby markets are suffering too.Falling new car sales are not good news for £400m engineering group Ricardo (LSE: RCDO), which makes high-tech parts for many car manufacturers. The company said today that it expects to see automotive orders fall in the US, EMEA and China regions.Wider disruption to the firm’s operations in China is also causing problems. Management now expect profits for the year ending 30 June to be significantly lower than previously expected.It’s not good news, and the shares are down by 15% as I write. But Ricardo also operates in other sectors, such as defence and renewable energy, where demand remains strong.I’m impressed by this firm’s long track record and expect its performance to recover. With the shares now trading on just 12 times 2021 forecast earnings and offering a yield of about 3.6%, I think Ricardo could make sense as a long-term buy.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “The Man from the Pru” was a much-loved British advertising campaign. But these days the fortunes of Prudential (LSE: PRU) are driven by business in Asia, which can be delivered by an app as easily as a doorstep representative. The Prudential share price has increased just over 100% in the past year. But I think the company’s strategic focus could help move it higher yet.Not the old PrudentialThe image of the Prudential as an old school British insurer has now fallen far from the reality, in my view. It has been refocusing its business for years. First it spun off M&G. It is currently offloading its US business, Jackson.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…That will leave the business mostly focussed on two high-growth regions. The company talks about its African plans, but it is the Asian business that I find more attractive. Asia is home to billions of consumers in in markets like China and Vietnam. Many are rapidly progressing into the middle classes, with more disposable income. That isn’t guaranteed, though: many Asian economies have stuttered from the pandemic. A slow recovery could hurt the Prudential share price.Digital impact on the Prudential share priceA lot of the life insurance business is unchanged since the nineteenth century when Prudential was founded. A representative meets with a customer, assesses their needs and recommends a policy. Typically a monthly premium will provide insurance.The consumer needs have remained similar and I expect them to endure. For example, a new parent decides to take out life insurance to protect their family in case an unforeseen accident leaves them without a breadwinner.But for these straightforward, standardized policies, the cost of an army of field sales agents can reduce profitability. Many digital native consumers would be happy to research and purchase life insurance online, for example through an app. Reducing the sales cost of such policies could help an insurer’s profitability.Prudential is focused on this approach, with its own Pulse app now helping it grow in fifteen Asian markets. By last month, the app had reached over 20m installations. The company already reckons it is converting new customers, with over 1.5m customers accessing one of its services through Pulse.I think the basic need for financial products such as life insurance will endure. But if consumer attitudes change – for example, due to falling birthrates – Prudential and other insurers could face a shrinking market.Double tailwindsI like the simplicity of the growth story for Prudential in Asia. It can grow in two ways, in my view.First, by focusing on growing markets like southeast Asia, the company has positioned itself to ride growth in markets without having to help create it. Such growth could be good for the Prudential share price.Secondly, by increasing the share of business transacted and managed digitally, the company should be able to reduce costs. That could be good for profits. However, competitors will also want to use digital channels, which could lead to downward pricing pressure rather than a simple translation of cost savings into profits.

The Horned Frogs were led by three new faces in the lineup over the weekend — Gray Rodgers, Phillip Sikes and Gene Wood all had impressive offensive performances. Gray Rogers hit his first homer of the season Sunday. Photo by Jack WallaceRodgers, a junior transfer from Blinn College, hit .545 against the Wildcats with two doubles and a home run. Sikes, a junior transfer from Pima Community College, hit .500 with five total base hits.Wood, a redshirt senior from Alabama, started off the weekend slowly but had a resurgence Sunday with two home runs and a successful bunt, raising his batting average to .300. “I was trying to swing too hard the first two days and trying to do too much,” Wood said. “After I got the bunt hit, it helped me relax.”TCU’s pitching staff also started out the season strong but will face a tough test against the Wildcats. Johnny Ray, a redshirt sophomore, went for 4.2 innings and collected seven strikeouts. Charles King went for 6 innings, facing 22 batters and giving up just three hits. Back from injury, Russell Smith pitched 4.2 innings with five strikeouts on Sunday. Schlossnagle was impressed with the performance of his pitchers this past weekend. Photo by Jack Wallace“We had three really good starting pitching performances and everyone we brought in, for the most part, did a good job of attacking the strike zone,” Schlossnagle said. In Abilene Christian’s four-game sweep against Utah Valley this past weekend, ACU had seven players hit over .300. The Wildcats are also averaging 6.8 runs per game so far this season. “Abilene Christian had a really good weekend,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “I just told the team, anytime you play and you start out like this, all it does is raise the stakes and makes every game more and more important.” Tommy Cruz and Seth Watts are both hitting .500 for ACU. The Wildcats were able to win most of their games last weekend with their pitching, posting an ERA of 1.89 against Utah State, a tough test for TCU’s powerful offense. Tanner Riley pitched six innings with nine strikeouts, followed by Austin Wagner’s five innings and seven strikeouts.“It’s a great competition and it’s going to be tricky,” Wood said. “If we come out like we did this weekend we will have a good shot, we will just have to play our best.”While the Frogs are off to an impressive start, Scholssnagle was hesitant to count his laurels this early. “Our goal is not to be the best team now but to be the best team at the most important part of the season,” he said.First pitch between the Horned Frogs and the ACU Wildcats is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Lupton Stadium.  Second phase of Fort Worth Zoo renovation project to open in mid-April Reservations at TCU Recreation Center in high demand due to pandemic guidelines Gray Rogers hit his first homer of the season Sunday.

The journalist, who is in hospital and under police protection, has for the past five years been investigating criminal control of gaming machines and collusion on the part of certain police officials. His daughter said that her father had received scores of anonymous threats both by phone and in the post.“This murder attack could be linked to the many revelations made on air by Alckmin about the gangs controlling gaming machines in the region, made even more likely by the fact he was the intended target of a similar shooting in July this year,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“We urge the authorities to rapidly investigate and hunt those responsible for the attack.

But don’t expect another house price boom, the report said.“With the months’ supply of homes having been under five since May of this year, it is not surprising that house price growth is picking up,” Capital stated in the report. “But there are a sizeable number of vacant homes being held off the market. As these are gradually listed for sale or rent, that will ease supply conditions to some extent. And with banks not set to repeat the rapid credit loosening of the mid-2000s, another house price boom will be avoided.”The lack of inventory is holding back existing home sales, and Capital Economics said it does not expect those conditions to improve in the next couple of years. But slow existing home sales will mean good news for new home sales, since builders are able to complete their homes and sell them more quickly—and as a result, they are increasing production of new homes. In November, housing starts for single-family homes increased to their highest level in seven years, and as a result of the increase in production, new home sales are expected to increase substantially.The expected Fed rate hike occurred on Wednesday up to a range of 1/4 to 1/2 amid a positive jobs report that showed an average monthly job gain of about 218,000 for the three-month period from September to November. Despite the Fed raising the federal funds target rate, housing affordability is expected to remain favorable for some time, according to Capital.“For one, mortgage interest rates will stay sub-5 percent until at least early-to-mid 2017,” the report stated. “Moreover, earnings growth is also finally set to rise. So although mortgage payments as a share of income will go up, they will remain under the historically normal level of 20 percent over the forecast horizon. An increase in earnings will also ensure that homes do not become overvalued.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Tight Supply Driving Home Prices Up but Don’t Expect Another Boom Subscribelast_img read more

Photo: US Navy A Los Angeles-class attack submarine and P-8A Poseidon crews from the US Navy and the Royal Australian Air Force have completed their participation in the annual, multilateral exercise Sea Dragon.This year’s exercise was conducted out of Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, and concluded on January 22.Participating US units were Patrol Squadron (VP) 47, VP-16, both operating under Commander, Task Force (CTF) 72, and Commander, Submarine Squadron (CSS) 15, operating under CTF-74. CTF-72 lead and oversaw the exercise.Squadron 11 from RAAF as well as servicemembers from the Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) joined US units throughout the exercise.“Sea Dragon 2019 was a huge success” said Lt. Cmdr. Aaron Roberts, Commander, Task Force (CTF) 72 Exercise Sea Dragon Officer in Charge. “The exercise allowed participants to refine their ASW skills while exposing them to unique differences between each squadron.”Participants executed over 20 sorties and 80 operational hours, advancing through multiple levels of ASW proficiency, with support from Mobile Tactical Operations Center (MTOC) 1, over the eight days of the exercise.“It was an invaluable opportunity for our junior operators to train on a live submarine,” said Roberts. “You cannot always replicate this type of training in a simulator.”During the exercise, US and RAAF aircrew coordinated ASW prosecution against both simulated and live targets to include a Los Angeles-class attack submarine assigned to CSS-15.“This exercise provides our Los Angeles-class submarines the opportunity to work and train with the Marine Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft of the RAAF in an effort to increase our readiness and lethality in the region,” said Capt. Timothy Poe, CSS-15.Additional to the joint units conducting the exercise, many other US entities were involved during the many developmental and implemental stages of the exercise.“I appreciate all the planning and execution from CTF-74, Marianas Island Range Complex, Anderson AFB, MTOC 1, and US Naval Undersea Warfare Center, whose hard work made this exercise possible,” said Roberts. “CTF-72 looks forward to hosting this exercise again in 2020 and expanding it to more partners and allies in the future.” View post tag: US Navy View post tag: Poseidon P-8Acenter_img View post tag: Royal Australian Navy View post tag: RAAF Share this articlelast_img read more
