Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images. Stock market rally: Biden win lifts the FTSE 100 to 3-month high. I’d buy these stocks now “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Manika Premsingh Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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. The FTSE 100 index hasn’t had it so good for a while now. As I write, the index is hovering around 6,200, a level not seen since early August. Its increase of 5% since the last close hasn’t been seen since March.No points for guessing the reason for the stock market rally though. The US’s election polls had global stock markets on tenterhooks for much of last week and the rally was initially driven by Biden’s win. Pfizer’s successful coronavirus vaccine has also added to huge investor relief.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…What the ‘Biden bounce’ means for the FTSE 100Both imply that the worst is over for stock markets. Uncertainty around the US’s political future was moving them sideways and Covid-19, of course, had sent businesses across the world in the doldrums. The US economy was expected to show healthy growth in 2021, but forecasters like Goldman Sachs said that a Biden win would improve growth prospects even more.I think companies with a strong US market stand to gain. Recently, I wrote about how the Irish construction firm CRH could be a big gainer in time. There are at least two more stocks in this category. One is Ashtead, the FTSE 100 industrial equipment rental company. More than half its revenues come from the US.Another is the FTSE 100 luxury brand, Burberry. It will get a double boost in demand from a Chinese bounceback and now the US. The US accounts for a smaller, but still substantial 23%, share in its revenues.FTSE 250 stocks to considerIn a similar vein, I’d now consider buying the beleaguered fashion brand and retailer Ted Baker. After a reset following last year’s fiasco, the company has been struggling like many others in 2020. However, with 30% of its sales generated in North America, the tide may be about to turn for it.I’m also hopeful about Cineworld, which has a strong US presence too. Its share price has already bounced back, with a very likely shot in the arm from the Pfizer news. FTSE 100 stocks I’d avoid nowFTSE 100 precious metals giant Polymetal International, on the other hand, has weaker prospects in my view than earlier. The reasoning is straightforward. Precious metal stocks have rallied this year on macro-economic and financial markets uncertainty. With some stability back, I reckon the gold price’s rise will slow down. This, in turn, will impact gold stocks. It doesn’t mean that all will be lost for them. POLY, for instance, showed strong revenue growth even before the gold price rally. But if the price of gold is the sole reason for buying the stock, I’d think it through first.I’d think similarly about Fresnillo, another FTSE 100 precious metals miner. It may not have lost its lustre, but it is probably dimmed for now. If Pfizer’s vaccine news turns out less positive than is now suggested, there could be a bounce-back in gold stocks. Over time though, I reckon their growth will temper. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!
Published on December 17, 2014 at 12:42 am Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Facebook Twitter Google+ Alexis Peterson hit Syracuse’s first 3-pointer of the game and it set the tone for the rest of the half.Her 13 first-half points came on 5-of-6 shooting, and all five makes came on deep jump shots. But in the second half, Peterson played the distributor, totaling four assists and attacking in transition before kicking out.“Alexis was phenomenal tonight,” Orange head coach Quentin Hillsman said.Peterson finished with a game-high 18 points and six assists in No. 19 Syracuse’s (8-1) 70-37 demolition of Canisius (4-5, 2-0 Metro Atlantic Athletic) on Tuesday night in front of 393 in the Carrier Dome.The sophomore point guard spread Canisius out by knocking down jumpers early on. When defenders pressed out to stop her as the game progressed, Peterson drove to the hoop and distributed after forcing the Golden Griffins’ defense to collapse on her.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I wanted to get everybody else involved, get everybody else going and just be like a positive force on the court,” Peterson said.Five minutes into the second half, Peterson dribbled through the lane in transition. Even though she was fouled before she got the shot off, her momentum carried her in front of the seats behind the basket. When she turned around, teammate Bria Day gave her a high-five and said, “way to get down the court.”Just a minute later, Peterson drove to the basket again, got fouled again and hit two free throws.“She did a good job of reading all situations,” Hillsman said. “She just took shots when she was open.”With about nine minutes left in the game, Peterson penetrated the lane again, except this time she spun past two defenders. Though her underhand scoop shot hit off the underside of the rim, the nifty move elicited “oohs” and “ahhs” from the crowd.With yet another performance solidifying her role as SU’s top guard thus far, Hillsman acknowledged his team’s potential when its sparkplug is on full throttle.“She really puts a lot of pressure on a defense,” Hillsman said. “When she gets out in transition and she really pushes tempo, we’re a very good basketball team.” Comments

Powered by Firework Back in 1999, a new record was set in Indian cricket. The iconic bowler Anil Kumble, revered to be one of the best bowlers ever to grace the game, entered the history books against Pakistan in a Test series in February. A fter England’s Jim Laker, the legend became the second cricketer ever to secure all 10 wickets in a match. 21 years later, the Indian cricketing fandom has seen it again, this time in a domestic under 19 match. Say hello to Kashvee Gautam, the teenage Chandigarh bowler who has wiped out the opposition all by herself!Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFP/HTIn the Paytm Women’s Under-19 One Day Trophy match versus Arunachal Pradesh, Kashvee Gautam showed her prowess by picking up the whole opposition batting lineup, that too in just 4.5 overs, including a hat trick. The 16 year old put out an unbelievable figure of 4.5-1-12-10, all while captaining Chandigarh at the KSRM College Ground, Kadapa.The official Twitter handle of BCCI Women uploaded a video of Kashvee’s amazing spell, a compilation of all ten of her wickets. The clip was captioned along with her statistics from the match. Enjoy it here-Advertisement Six of Kashvee’s wickets were in form of LBW, and the remaining four were clean bowled. Other than the stellar bowling figures, the youngster returned an appreciable performance with the bat, scoring 49 runs, including four boundaries. Defending a total of 186, Chandigarh won the match by 161 runs, as Arunachal were bundled out by just 27 runs.Following the match, the starlet expressed her feelings for such an amazing performance. “It is like a dream come true for me. Moreover I didn’t have to take any help for the fielders for any of my dismissals,” Kashvee said in the post match interview.A die hard fan of the Team India superstar Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kashvee’s dream is to earn a call up for the Indian Women international squad. “It feels amazing. I aspire to play for Indian women’s team one day,” she concluded.Kashvee has been in tremendous form in the tournament. Previously securing 7 wickets against Jammu and Kashmir, she is already leading as the highest wicket taker in the tournament, with a stunning 18 wickets from three matches. With a continuous performance like this, its not doubt that Kashvee will grab the attention of the Women in Blue’s selectors in no time.Also read-See which Indian cricketing legends Harsha Bhogle just compared Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma with!

Credit the good purses, the good racing surfaces and the greatweather, but whatever it is, from north to south, California currently is the home of the best and the brightest in the business, to wit:Los Alamitos Race Course in Orange County is the headquarters of 2014 Horse of the Year California Chrome; Golden Gate Fields in the Bay Area is the stomping grounds of the best horse in America, Santa Anita Handicap winner Shared Belief; Santa Anita is the permanent residence of the two Kentucky Derby favorites, American Pharoah and Dortmund; and, with all due respect to Untapable, the home court of the best older mares in training, Beholder and Warren’s Veneda.“It’s paradise on earth,” said native Los Angelino Craig Lewis, who trains Warren’s Veneda, the streaking California-bred mare who has won three straight, including the Grade I Santa Margarita Stakes on March 14.“The surfaces and the purses are very good, and you can’t beat the weather,” Lewis said. “Hot Springs (Oaklawn Park in Arkansas) calls me every day trying to get me to run Warren’s Veneda there (in the Grade I, $600,000 Apple Blossom on April 10), and I said to the guy, ‘Why would I come all the way across the country to run against the best mare in the country, Untapable?’“And he told me, ‘You’ve got the best mare in the country.’“You can’t beat the weather we’ve got. We’re fortunate to be here.”CLOCKER FANCIES BAFFERT DUO FOR KENTUCKY DERBYThe Kentucky Derby is six weeks hence, but twisting Gary Young’s arm today for his picks, he wouldn’t deviate from the obvious.“If I had to name a Derby winner on three notes right now it’d be American Pharoah, Dortmund and Carpe Diem,” said the respected private clocker, referring to Bob Baffert’s dynamic duo and Tampa Bay Derby winner Carpe Diem, trained by Todd Pletcher.“As far as the two Baffert horses are concerned, I think Pharoah is probably the more brilliant horse,” Young said. “But just looking at who’s bigger, looking at their bodies and their stride, Dortmund might have a better chance of getting a mile and quarter than Pharoah.“You’ve got to go back a long time since one guy had two horses as strong as this, six weeks from the Derby. These are two good horses.“One thing about Baffert: he gets good horses and he’s not afraid to train them.”In other Santa Anita Derby news:Trainer Jim Cassidy said he may opt out of the Santa Anita Derby in favor of the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on April 4 for Delta Jackpot winner Ocho Ocho Ocho, who suffered superficial leg cuts when finishing eighth behind Dortmund in the San Felipe Stakes.In either case, his current go-to rider, Santiago Gonzalez, would have the mount.Santa Anita offers a $750,000 guaranteed Late Pick 4 pool and a $300,000 guaranteed Pick 6 pool on Santa Anita Derby Day. -30-
