I recently commented on how FTSE 100 peer Taylor Wimpey has continued to sell houses despite the outbreak of Covid-19 and subsequent concerns over an economic meltdown emerging. Fortunately this share from Britain’s second-tier share index keeps on growing revenues, too.Vistry said last week that it had booked 212 gross private reservations since the lockdown a month ago. This has created 132 reservations net of cancellations. The Kent company added that “our levels of website traffic and prospects remain strong, an indication of the continued underlying demand”.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…A top ISA stockDemand for new homes remains strong because of a shortage of properties entering the market. It’s a phenomenon that could receive further support further down the line. If economic conditions worsen, existing homeowners may think twice about putting their properties on the market.In other good news last week, Vistry announced that it was putting its people back to work on construction projects next week. It’s a development that’ll help the FTSE 250 firm get closer to its planned production target of 6,000 new homesteads each year.Profits set to soar?Vistry’s share price has slumped 45% since the stock market meltdown kicked off in late February. It’s a fall that came in tandem with brokers slashing their near-term earnings expectations for the housebuilder.However, City analysts still expect the business to generate decent profits growth in 2020. It’s a reflection of that robust underlying demand caused by Britain’s whopping homes shortage. A 14% annual bottom-line rise is predicted for this year. Another 24% earnings improvement is anticipated in 2021, too.7.5% dividend yields!Of course, the UK and global economies are in uncharted waters with regards to the coronavirus crisis. Big questions over infection rates, the timing and the scale of lockdown lifting, and their subsequent implications on economic conditions and the housing market will remain in play for some time yet. And Vistry, of course should be prepared for a fresh furlough of its construction staff should, as many health experts are tipping, a secondary wave of infections emerge later this year.I’d argue, though, that the FTSE 250 firm’s valuations more that reflect the possibility of current earnings forecasts being blown off course. At current prices it carries a forward price-to-earnings (or P/E) ratio of around 7 times. This is well inside the widely-regarded bargain watermark of 10 times and below.Moreover, there’s plenty for income investors to toast Vistry for currently. Those recent trading problems mean that brokers expect the annual payout to drop in 2020. But the builder still carries a gigantic 5.4% yield. Besides, a return to dividend growth next year means that the yield marches up to 7.5%. This share is clearly not without risks, though at current prices it’s one I’d happily buy for my own ISA.center_img 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.

first_imgKILL BILL VOLUME 1Odeon George StreetFriday 17 – Thursday 23 October Quentin Tarantino, the undisputed “daddy” of retro-cool, has made a blistering return to form after a lengthy absence. Kill Bill, his fourth outing as director, sees Uma Thurman play The Bride, an expert female assassin who, upon awaking from a four-year coma, sets out to avenge herself of the wedding-day massacre that she barely survived. To this effect, she resolves to cripple, maim, disfigure, brutalise and generally kill all five members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, (DIVAS, for short) at the head of which presides the eponymous Bill, played by David Carradine of Sixties Kung Fu fame. Similar to The Bride, Tarantino himself seems to have been in hibernation for a few years, dithering intermittently with second-world war epics and family comedies. So, now that he seems back on track, what can you expect from Mr T’s latest adrenaline-fuelled offering? Kill Bill is what I would term a “movie-movie” replete with references to films of the director’s youth, and too lavish in its cartoonish excesses to be taken seriously. The story is divided into five chapters, giving Tarantino free rein to indulge his penchant for achronological exposition. He effortlessly blends multiple genres, from Hong Kong action flicks to spaghetti westerns, via blaxploitation films of the Seventies, in a hip seamless style with a lethal injection of violence. Those familiar with Peter Jackson’s pre-Lord Of The Rings efforts, such as Braindead, will feel instantly at home with the over-the-top gore and splatter. For the more sensitive types, the majority of the climactic showdown (in which The Bride smoothly dispatches 88 yakuza henchmen) is shot in black-and-white, to lessen the shock. Undoubtedly a masterpiece, Kill Bill is not without flaws and some mild criticism is certainly in order. To begin with, the achingly hip and oft-quoted dialogue from Tarantino’s previous features is all but absent in Kill Bill. This vital missing ingredient leaves the characterisation grossly underdeveloped, and the plot, somewhat on the thin side. Furthermore, the martial arts scenes are not quite as spectacular as you might expect, presumably owing to the director’s inexperience in this field. The controversial decision to chop the film in two might also be seen as irksome and unnecessary, although the second volume (out in February) could potentially make up for aforementioned quibbles. And quibbles they are: as a film which, from the outset, devotes itself unashamedly to style over substance, it scores top marks. There is also a considerable dose of humour (albeit mostly jet black); a particular scene in a Japanese sushi bar had me in stitches. Mention must also go to Ms. Thurman, who performs the role of an browbeaten killer on a vengeful suicide mission with steely resolve. Ultimately, a movie with an entire sequence in Japanese anime, samurai swords and a soundtrack that is guaranteed to stay in your CD player longer even than that of Pulp Fiction, cannot fail to impress. Go tonight for a bloody, but brilliant kitsch thrill.ARCHIVE: 1st Week MT2003last_img read more

Fridays on the Fly: Abbi Bagwell Confronts Her Streamer Addiction Head-on

first_imgPhotos by Alan BroyhillStreamers. What an intoxicating word. For those of you who don’t know what a streamer is, let me fill you in. Streamers are large flies made to imitate large baits such as baitfish, crayfish, hellgrammites, leeches, and other large aquatic insects. Streamers are the closest fly fishing gets to imitating conventional lures.I didn’t start streamer fishing, but I have come to find this style of fishing a true addiction. Don’t get me wrong, I love floating an indicator with two flies dangling from the bottom and watching the “thingamabobber” get sucked into the water, but it’s just not the same as feeling a giant fish whack a streamer or watching a fish inhale a delicious-looking fly as you’re stripping for dear life.“Stripping” – come on, it’s not what you think. Stripping your line gives your streamer life, making the fly dance in the water and mimic exactly what your “bait” should look like as it swims along. This is part of what makes streamer fishing so awesome – the thrill of the chase. You are watching a fish physically hunt down your streamer.What is truly the most exciting thing about streamer fishing? Bigger flies catch bigger fish. Period. You can drift a nymph or float a dry fly all day long, but tossing a fly the size of a chicken to a fish the size of a 10-year-old is unbeatable. I’m not saying the rush of catching a 22” brown trout on a size 24 midge (a super tiny fly) is not exhilarating. By all means- it’s freakin’ wild. But the work, effort, finesse, and dedication of streamer fishing is why I enjoy it so much. You are constantly moving, constantly covering large amounts of water, and constantly on your toes, awaiting a river monster to annihilate your fly.I’ve thrown streamers all morning, all afternoon, and all evening and have walked away empty-handed. But that’s the beauty of it. That’s why it’s called fishing, not catching. For me, it’s about the journey. It’s about the experience, and it’s about learning.So the next time you load up to go on a fly fishing adventure, take an 8wt, bring some 3x tippet, grab some Skulpin Bunnies, and get ready. You will be hooked; literally hooked if you’re standing behind, in front of, or near me as I chuck chickens to my dream fish.Abbi Bagwell is the business operations manager for the Brevard, North Carolina-based Flymen Fishing Company.
