It was easy to pick winners last year, but 2021 will be different. Let's single out four stocks worth watching.
Having spent five long sessions in the field in sweltering Galle as Sri Lanka racked up a very solid looking 381, England were given two and a half hours of batting to begin building their response. England’s spinners, Jack Leach and Dim Bess, had bowled 64 overs between them without even really looking like taking a wicket. All 10 wickets falling to seam in Sri Lanka had not happened since England did it in 2001, with the wickets shared by Darren Gough, Andy Caddick and Craig White.
Back then, the extent of my retirement knowledge was that I had a 401(k) plan with money in it earmarked for my senior years. At some point, I may choose to significantly cut back on the amount of work I do.
If he were alive today, even St. Paul would be texting, Tweeting and firing off emails to get the news out, Pope Francis said on Saturday in his message for the Roman Catholic Church's World Day of Social Communication. St. Paul, who lived in the first century of the Christian era, spread the new faith into Europe and Asia Minor and is believed to have written a great part of the New Testament. "Every tool has its value, and that great communicator who was Paul of Tarsus would certainly have made use of email and social messaging," the pope said in the message, titled "Come and See".
These three healthcare stocks all had a good year in 2020, and their businesses look to have plenty of growth again in 2021.
Also, the more you spend on a home, the more difficult it will be to meet other financial goals you might have, like saving for retirement. The larger your home, the higher your property tax bill is likely to be.
The Hammers are today aiming to reach the FA Cup fifth round for the first time in five years. Defeats to the likes of West Brom, AFC Wimbledon and Wigan in recent years have frustrated the locals, but there is confidence of a building Cup run in east London. Doncaster, though, have been known for a cupset or two down the years and should not be taken lightly, but will be making a rare foray deeper into the competition with victory at the London Stadium.
Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. Here's why three Fool.com contributors would recommend now private citizen Donald Trump consider General Dynamics, Ford Motor (NYSE: F), and Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) if he does decide to open a brokerage account in the weeks to come. Can I interest you in a new Gulfstream, Mr. Trump?
The largest derivatives market is expanding in cryptocurrencies, with big repercussions for digital money.
If you had bought shares of Moderna (NASDAQ: MRNA) in January 2020, you would be sitting pretty right now. Thanks to its coronavirus-related efforts, shares of the biotech company are up by 524% over the past 12 months, compared to gains of 15.5% for the S&P 500. For investors who missed this opportunity, it is worth wondering if Moderna can produce similar -- or even juicier -- gains moving forward.

France's top health advisory body on Saturday recommended doubling the time between people being given the first and second COVID-19 vaccinations to six weeks from three in order to increase the number getting inoculated. The gap between the first and second injection in France is currently three weeks for people in retirement homes, who take priority, and four weeks for others such as health workers. The Haute Autorite de Sante (HAS) said spacing out the two required vaccinations of the Pfizer/BioNtech and Moderna vaccines would allow the treatment of at least 700,000 more people in the first month.
Teladoc Health (NYSE: TDOC), The Trade Desk (NASDAQ: TTD), and Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA) all have one thing in common -- outstanding recent performance compared to the S&P 500. Teladoc has become an early leader in the virtual-care space, a market that could be worth as much as $250 billion annually in the U.S. alone. The company seeks to turn its premium telemedicine platform into an all-in-one stop for those seeking digital consultations with their physicians.
With so much hype around coronavirus vaccine stocks, it was easy to miss Personalis (NASDAQ: PSNL), which became a 10-bagger after the market crash last year. Personalis is a biotech that competes with Guardant Health (NASDAQ: GH) and Adaptive Biotechnologies (NASDAQ: ADPT) in the cancer genomics space. Other major competitors include NanoString Technologies (NASDAQ: NSTG) and Foundation Medicine, a subsidiary of Roche Holdings (OTC: RHHBY).
After an agreement between the Rugby Football Union and Premiership Rugby dictated that Eddie Jones was only able to select 28 players for the Six Nations, owing to the fact that his squad will need to be in a ‘bubble’ away from their clubs for the duration of the championship, the England head coach also selected a 12-man “shadow squad”. This dozen-strong group will remain at their clubs throughout the tournament, but they will be subject to the same testing regimen as the 28-man cohort. Meaning that, if anyone was to drop out, someone from the shadows will be healthy and ready enough to immediately take his place. Here, Telegraph Sport runs through the 12. Charlie Atkinson (Wasps, uncapped) Young fly-half whose precocious temperament has been evident in several of Wasps’ punchy displays this season, notably in victories over Montpellier and Sale. The 19 year-old might have to bide his time for an appearance, however, as his club mate, Jacob Umaga, is seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order. One to watch. Ali Crossdale (Saracens, uncapped) The Saracens wing is one of the most unknown names among the 12. The 22 year-old has featured for England age-group sides, but he has not played since Saracens’ away loss to Worcester at the end of September. When you add in that he is uncapped, any inclusion in the next two months would be a shock. Tom Dunn (Bath, three caps) The Bath hooker can count himself as one of the unluckiest to miss out on the squad; the restricted squad size available to Jones meant that carrying three hookers would have been foolhardy and in Jamie George and Luke Cowan-Dickie Jones has two of Europe’s best. If there is an injury to one of the aforementioned duo, then he will definitely feature. Charlie Ewels (Bath, 17 caps) Ewels makes way for Courtney Lawes, with the Saints lock returning after missing the autumn campaign through injury. As the most senior lock among the shadowing dozen, however, the understated 25 year-old is fairly likely to be promoted to the senior squad at some stage across the championship, even if he does not feature on matchday. George Furbank (Northampton, three caps) The full-back’s chances with England have been limited since he made his debut in the Six Nations loss in Paris last year, on the back of some glitzy, class-oozing displays for the Saints. The 24 year-old was recalled into England’s training squads for the Autumn Nations Cup, but he is often unfairly maligned due to that day in Paris. If Elliot Daly is crocked, Furbank could see a recall. Joe Heyes (Leicester, uncapped) Tigers’ tighthead was called up to the squad for that ill-fated match against the Barbarians in the autumn after showing some bite for his club, albeit off the bench. But the 21 year-old’s reputation is such that, with Kyle Sinckler’s ban, the former Nottingham Forest youth goalkeeper is third choice. An injury to Will Stuart or Harry Williams in the next fortnight and he could make his debut. Jonathan Joseph (Bath, 54 caps) England are well aware of what the British and Irish Lions centre can offer, but the thunderous rise of Paolo Odogwu, coupled with the restricted squad numbers, has resulted in the centre-cum-wing’s omission, despite his versatility. The 29 year-old’s form with Bath has not been setting the Premiership alight, either, but his experience and versatility mean a call-up is likely. Joe Marchant (Harlequins, four caps) Marchant has shown glimpses of his talent for Harlequins this season, but the general malaise at his club – particularly in generating go-forward – has limited the 24 year-old’s space in the midfield, which is vital for his pacey approach. Playing a similar centre/wing role to Joseph, who was above Marchant in the pecking order in the autumn, an appearance for the Quin is unlikely. George Martin (Leicester, uncapped) Despite making only a handful of appearances for the Tigers, the second row has slotted seamlessly into Premiership action like a seasoned journeyman. A club insider has described the 19 year-old as Leicester’s “best second-row prospect since Martin Johnson”, words with enough gravitas to entice Eddie Jones. Although Ewels is more likely to feature in the coming months, Martin’s stock is rising. Alex Mitchell (Northampton, uncapped) Mitchell was seen as the next big thing when he was first called into the senior squad as an apprentice at the start of the 2020 Six Nations, but since then the 23 year-old has not made the No 9 jersey his own with Saints and has been usurped in the senior squad by fellow tyro Harry Randall. With Dan Robson and incumbent Ben Youngs also in the senior squad, Mitchell’s opportunities will be limited. Jacob Umaga (Wasps, uncapped) Unfortunately for Umaga, he has both the immaculate George Ford and, most likely, the England captain Owen Farrell ahead of him in the pecking order for the fly-half jersey. That will not stop the 22 year-old, though, from continuing to impress with his mature control and footballing ability at his club. Son of Mike and nephew of Tana, he will surely be playing international rugby sooner rather than later. Jack Willis (Wasps, two caps) Wasps’ turnover supremo has been obscenely unlucky in missing out for this year’s Championship, especially considering there has been not even the slightest sign of second-season syndrome after his 2020 debut. But England’s back-row depth is embarrassingly rich and selection must have been tight; regardless, if any second or back row is ruled out, Willis will surely be the first man for whom they send.

With the stock market breaking barriers and hitting new all-time highs on a regular basis, it's almost hard to believe that, just 10 months ago, equities were in their steepest bear market tailspin in history. Right now, there are three turnaround stocks that, according to Wall Street's one-year consensus price targets, offer upside ranging from 75% to as much as 84%. The first bounce-back stock that Wall Street believes offers lustrous return potential is gold mining company Kinross Gold (NYSE: KGC).

(Bloomberg) -- Hours after taking office, President Joe Biden made good on a campaign promise to cancel the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Later that day his Interior Department mandated that only top agency leaders could approve new drilling permits over the next two months.Next week, according to people familiar with the plans, Biden will go even further: suspending the sale of oil and gas leases on federal land, where the U.S. gets 10% of its supplies.The actions sent oil producers’ stocks tumbling and raised blood pressure across the industry.“In the first couple of days of the new administration, they are taking actions that will harm the economy and cost Americans their jobs,” said Frank Macchiarola, a senior vice president of policy for the American Petroleum Institute. “We’re concerned, and everyone in the country should be concerned.”The Interior Department’s order, signed late Wednesday, changes procedures for 60 days while the agency’s new leadership gets into place. It requires top brass to sign off on oil leases and permits as well as decisions about hiring, mining operations and environmental reviews.The industry took it as a bad omen. Officials are worried that technical permitting decisions are being placed in the hands of political appointees, rather than expert regulators in the field. And they’re concerned permits -- or simply changes to them -- will be delayed for existing drilling operations.Moreover, many interpreted it as a prelude to broader actions, including the administration’s plan to next week impose a moratorium on all oil, gas and coal leasing across some 700 million acres (2.8 million hectares) of federal land.This “announcement is intended as a temporary ban on leasing and permitting but is also a precursor to a longer-term ban,” said Kathleen Sgamma, head of the Western Energy Alliance, which has threatened to go to court to battle any such blockade.While Biden’s campaign promises - and his initial moves to fulfill them - are a threat to some U.S. oil producers, the actions could be a boon for crude prices by restraining supply.The administration’s early moves mark a dramatic shift from the course under former President Donald Trump, who sought to accelerate drilling permits and open up more places to oil exploration.And the change in direction is already apparent in early staffing decisions. Under Trump, the top offshore drilling regulator at Interior was Scott Angelle, a longtime oil industry ally and former Louisiana official who pushed for rapid permitting of Gulf of Mexico oil projects after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.By contrast, one of Biden’s first hires at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management that oversees offshore oil leasing and wind farms is Marissa Knodel, a former activist with Friends of the Earth. Knodel was one of about 150 people whose rowdy protest of a bureau auction of oil drilling rights in March 2016 prompted the agency to shift subsequent oil and gas lease sales online.On the campaign trail, Biden called for phasing out fossil fuels and promised to halt new oil and gas permitting on federal land. Worried oil producers stockpiled leases and drilling permits last year in anticipation of more restrictions under Biden.But the suddenness of this week’s moves still took many in the industry by surprise, prompting frantic phone calls as lobbyists and lawyers sought to plan their next moves. They are strategizing their options, including litigation, and looking at any political levers they can pull to forestall a broader leasing ban.Senator Dan Sullivan, a Republican from Alaska, said permitting changes threaten operations in his state during the current winter season, when companies such as ConocoPhillips rely on ice roads and ice pads to support drilling and other activity in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska.“If you put a 60-day moratorium on drilling in the NPR-A, guess what? You lose the whole season,” Sullivan said Friday on the Senate floor.Environmentalists are delighted. They say throttling fossil fuel development on federal land is necessary to pare the greenhouse gas emissions driving climate change. The oil, gas and coal extracted from federal lands and waters is responsible for about 24% of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, according to a U.S. Geological Survey report.“Pausing new fossil fuel decisions brings us closer to healthier communities, a healthier climate and healthier wild places,” said Dan Ritzman, director of Sierra Club’s Lands, Waters and Wildlife campaign. “Public lands can and must be part of the climate solution.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
