Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img I added Boohoo (LSE: BOO) to my portfolio during December’s share price dip. I’ve also pondered the possibility of my investment doubling in value in 2021. The Boohoo share price is one that can react in a volatile manner to short-term events, but I want to look beyond that.I did suggest Boohoo might get a boost from January’s trading update. That update came on the 14th, though the shares are in one of their regular short-term dips and it didn’t really help. I only care about the long term, but what did the update say?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…The key highlights included revenue growth of 40%. That left the company with net cash of £386.9m at 31 December (up from £344.9m at 31 August). Gross margin slipped a little, by just 50 bps to 53%. But that’s a cracking margin to be achieving by any standards.Looking forward, Boohoo has upped its full-year revenue growth guidance. We’re now looking at between 36% and 38%, up from previous guidance of 28% to 32%. This all looks very positive to me, but the Boohoo share price dipped by 5% on the day.Why did the Boohoo share price slip?Perhaps it’s something to do with the new Covid-19 lockdown? Last year, the coronavirus crisis and its effect on the high street gave online shopping a boost. Maybe investors are concerned that that effect will slow? Or the recent downturn could be just part of the volatility that shareholders have seen for years.Anyway, let’s forget what’s driving the Boohoo share price in the short term. In the long term, I can’t see anything but steady growth. But for that, I need to think about what the market will be like once the pandemic is finally past us. Looking back to early 2020, Kantar valued the global fashion market at around $300bn. The market analyst also predicted growth of about 3.9% per year in the following five years. That would add an extra $64bn by 2025.The economic impact of the global pandemic will surely knock that back a bit. But at the same time, it’s giving the online marketplace a handy boost. So while the overall rosy outlook from early 2020 might not quite come to pass, I reckon market share growth at Boohoo and other online sellers is still set to accelerate. And that could help the Boohoo share price to double.A lot more growth to come?Boohoo’s revenue for the year to February 2021 looks set to come in close to £1.7bn ($2.3bn). That’s based on the mid-point of the latest outlook figures, and that rate of growth might not be sustainable post-Covid. But the total is still a very tiny fraction of the world market, which suggests to me that Boohoo is probably still in its early growth days.Even going back to previous guidance of around 30% growth, that still suggests Boohoo is too cheap to me. I see 30% per year as sustainable. And if that translates to profit growth, which I think it will? Well, 30% per year growth in EPS would put the Boohoo share price on a P/E of only about 15 in five years.Can my investment in Boohoo really double in 2021? I rate it as the one in my portfolio with the best chance. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

For charities, as much as for for-profit companies, this is a key issue. But can it be measured? The US Consumers Union thinks so and has launched the Web Credibility Project to try to persuade Web site owners to disclose business links, especially where there is a conflict of interest.Transparency should be a key element of charities’ activities. Although it is unlikely that credibility can be measured and rated online, charities should nevertheless be working to demonstrate their credibility and openness both offline and online.

NCGA to EPA: Finalize E15 Parity by June 1

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News NCGA to EPA: Finalize E15 Parity by June 1 NCGA to EPA: Finalize E15 Parity by June 1 Previous articleTrump Promises Ag Focus in Japan Trade TalksNext articleUSDA Extends Deadline to Certify 2018 Crop Production for MFP Payments Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) submitted comments on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed rule to allow year-round sales of 15 percent ethanol blends, or E15, by eliminating the outdated barrier that currently requires retailers in many areas of the country to stop selling E15 during the summer months.“By allowing E15 to receive the same summer volatility adjustment EPA permits for E10, retailers will be able to offer drivers E15 year-round, providing choice to their customers without an interruption in sales between June and September,” NCGA President Lynn Chrisp wrote in the submitted comments.“Corn growers have advocated for this change for several years, and we agree with EPA’s assessment that the conditions that led EPA to provide the original volatility adjustment for E10, at a time when 10 percent was the highest ethanol blend available, are ‘equally applicable to E15 today,’” Chrisp added.In addition to being beneficial for farmers, higher blends of renewable fuels such as E15 also lower fuel prices for drivers and reduce emissions, improving air quality and providing greater greenhouse gas reductions.While NCGA supports EPA’s proposal to provide parity for E15 with standard 10 percent ethanol blends, NCGA cautioned EPA against finalizing proposed Renewable Identification Number (RIN) market rule changes that would be counterproductive to greater biofuels blending supported by the E15 rule. NCGA urged the EPA to take steps to ensure the complex RIN market proposal does not weigh down the final E15 rule, which is needed by June 1 to avoid an interruption in E15 sales.Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Geoff Cooper said in a release, “President Trump was correct when he called the summertime prohibition on E15 ‘unnecessary’ and ‘ridiculous,’ and we are pleased that EPA’s proposed regulatory amendments would finally allow gasoline retailers across the country to offer E15 to their customers year-round. When finalized, this rule will enhance competition and provide greater consumer access to cleaner, more affordable fuel options.“However, just 32 days remain before the start of the summer driving season,” Cooper continued. “To honor the President’s commitment, EPA must act quickly to complete this rule and ensure it is finalized in a manner that truly the opens the market to E15.”Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor added, “Unless the EPA acts quickly, the summer market for E15 will be lost, which means higher fuel prices for consumers and another devastating blow to America’s rural workforce. We cannot afford to let anything derail this opportunity to help revitalize growth in the heartland, and urge regulators to get this rule over the finish line by June 1, just as President Trump directed.”Read NCGA comments here.Sources: National Corn Growers Association, Renewable Fuels Association, and Growth Energy SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Apr 29, 2019 last_img read more

Coffee – Art of getting it right

first_imgYOU can find roast and ground coffee in packs in nearly every supermarket across the country, so why not give it a try and enjoy a real coffee experience. Here’s what to do according to the industry experts.Choose coffee that is 100% Arabica, which is the highest grade of coffee available. Beware of Robusta coffee which is cheaper and results in a bitter taste and an unpleasant lingering aftertaste.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Once you have your coffee the next thing to do is to get yourself a good quality coffee plunger pot (cafetiere). These are available in good department stores. Make sure that the film is fine and the plunger has a sturdy handle and plunge.For coffee served in a cafetiere (plunge pot):Like tea, always pre-heat the pot with hot water.  You should heat the cups tooMost people use a typical eight cup Cafetiere (3 mugs).  The actual recommended weight for that size of pot is 42 grammes which equates to 6 dessert spoonfuls. So, if you are brewing a half pot use three dessert spoonfuls.Never pour boiling water onto ground coffee as it scalds the coffee and spoils the taste.  Wait a minute after your kettle boils before pouring water into the pot.Give the coffee a good stir and place the plunger on top of the cafetiere, but do not press down the plunger yetAllow the coffee to rest a little while (3 – 4 minutes) then press down the plunger gently.  Pour the coffee into warmed cups and enjoy.Experiment – find the taste you like best using varying amounts of coffee and water.Always use fresh ground coffee that you opened no longer than two weeks ago.Once you open your pack of coffee, store it in a sealed airtight container. Coffee should never be stored in a fridge as it adds moisture to the coffee and steals its flavour.Always drink coffee fresh.  Microwaving your old coffee does not work well.  Neither does reusing the spent grounds.
