See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Barclays. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Rupert Hargreaves | Tuesday, 5th May, 2020 | More on: BARC Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The Barclays (LSE: BARC) share price has fallen a staggering 44% year-to-date. Following this decline, the stock looks cheap compared to history.Indeed, it’s now trading at one of its lowest level since the depths of the financial crisis.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…This seems unwarranted. Clearly, the coronavirus crisis will have a severe impact on the lender, but most analysts agree that it is unlikely any bank will come close to collapse, as they did in 2008/09.As such, after recent declines, now could be a good time for long-term investors to snap up Barclays shares.Barclays share price: under pressureAt the end of April, Barclays reported its results for the first quarter of 2020. The bank earned just £605m in the period. That was lower than the £810m predicted by analysts.Included in these results was £2.1bn of credit impairment losses. These were a result of a “forecast deterioration in macroeconomic variables, including expected peak unemployment levels and troughs in GDP for the UK and US economies,” as a result of the coronavirus crisis.Management is expecting the crisis to have a significant impact on the bank’s bottom line. This could continue to weigh on the Barclays share price. However, it’s notable that the business is still profitable.Even after accounting for these loan losses, Barclays still reported a positive result for the first quarter.This suggests that while the lender is experiencing a tough time, it’s nowhere near as bad as it was in the financial crisis.What’s more, Barclays’ trading and investment business is experiencing a boom in demand. Trading revenue increased by 77% during the first quarter of 2020. This jump helped offset some of the decline in earnings at the rest of the business.It seems highly likely that both of these trends will continue. It looks as if the global economy is set for an extended period of instability. And we don’t know how long it will be before markets, the Barclays share price and the economy recover.An extended downturn could lead to increased loan losses for Barclays, although additional market volatility will mean higher trading revenues.Buying for the long termAn extended period of uncertainty may mean that the Barclays share price remains depressed in the near term.Nevertheless, the fact that the group remains profitable is positive. Further, after recent declines, Barclays shares are trading at a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of just 0.25.In a typical environment, a stock deserves to trade at a P/B of less than one if it is losing money. Barclays isn’t losing money. With that being the case, there’s a good chance shares in the lender could rise 300% from current levels.Therefore, now could be an excellent time for long-term investors to snap up Barclays shares. The group is one of the largest banking institutions in the UK, and it doesn’t look as if this is going to change any time soon.As investor confidence returns, the figures above suggest that the stock could return more than 300% from current levels.

The 2020 stock market crash this spring saw the FTSE 100 plummet in chaotic scenes. The largest UK shares lost billions in value. Since then, nearly half of all UK listed companies have cut or scrapped their dividends. And markets still feel extremely fragile.But despite all the panic, fear and uncertainty, there are still UK shares primed to outperform.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…Could we see another stock market crash in August? It’s possible.Stock market crash round 2?Companies have had to survive tectonic shocks this year. Physical stores were shuttered for months (some still are) and an entire way of doing business has changed for good.But I believe there is a simple answer to the question of how to protect yourself from another stock market crash.Personally, I plan to buy resilient, profitable, growing companies. It’s as simple as that.KainosFTSE 250 medical software company Kainos (LSE:KNOS) released another stellar trading update on 27 July 2020.Net cash jumped from £40.8m on 31 March to more than £62m by 24 July, all with no debt.Profits for the year ending 31 March 2021 would be “substantially ahead of consensus“, the IT provider said.Even if there is another stock market crash, I see Kainos not just surviving, but thriving.The Belfast-based business is not a household name. But with growth prospects like these? That could all change.On the back of this July update, the share price jumped more than 20% from 827p to over 1,000p. That’s a hell of a leap for a company worth £1.16bn. It speaks of growing confidence and support from institutional and private investors alike.In April in the wake of the stock market crash, Kainos made fast moves to conserve cash. CEO Brendan Mooney stopped the full year dividend even while reporting full-year profits at £23.2m, 10% ahead of the previous year.Then Mooney and his CFO Richard McCann agreed to take no salary or bonuses for six months, and pushed through a 20% cut in non-exec board pay. These are the kinds of management moves I love to see.That cancelled final dividend? It’s returning as a one-off 6.7p per share payment. You can buy Kainos shares until the 6 August ex-dividend date and still be eligible. And dividends are returning to normal from now on, Mooney has confirmed.Avon RubberI’ve been banging the drum for Avon Rubber (LSE:AVON) for some time. The reason?The Wiltshire-based FTSE 250 firm is making money hand over fist. And even if there is another stock market crash, the outlook is very bright.In July, CEO Paul McDonald sold off the company’s dairy arm Milkrite InterPuls to refocus the business on its strongest growth area. That is, making masks, respiratory gear and defence equipment for military, fire and police services worldwide.Getting a sale price of £180m means that cash will be available for management to make more acquisitions. The last one was an absolute belter: picking up 3M’s ballistic protection business for £75m. It means Avon has been able to win long-term and highly lucrative government contracts. These will pull in years of revenue and will hopefully keep profits growing.In a difficult market with a potential stock market crash just around the corner, strongly profitable companies will be your saviour, in my view. They may look expensive on paper, but will boost your wealth by so much more. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Venkat Chandrasekaran, Assistant Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences and Electrical Engineering Credit: EAS Communications OfficeCaltech’s Venkat Chandrasekaran, assistant professor of computing and mathematical sciences and electrical engineering in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science, has been named a 2016 Sloan Research Fellow. The fellowships, awarded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, honor “early-career scientists and scholars whose achievements and potential identify them as rising stars, the next generation of scientific leaders.” According to the foundation, “Candidates must be nominated by their peers, and winning fellows are selected by an independent panel of senior scholars on the basis of a candidate’s independent research accomplishments, creativity, and potential to become a leader in his or her field.” This year, 126 fellows were chosen.Chandrasekaran, who joined the Caltech faculty in 2012, was selected for his work in the field of mathematical optimization. “Broadly, optimization is about choosing the best element from a set of feasible alternatives. For instance, if you work in jet-engine design, you have certain constraints in the amount of material you can use, the weight of these materials, aerodynamic issues, etc. But then you want to be able to design your wings and so on in such a way that you maximize, for example, how fast you are able to go,” he says. “I’m interested in optimization problems arising in data analysis. We are able to gather massive amounts of data, but how can we optimally separate useful information from noise?”Sloan Fellows receive a $55,000 award to further their research in any way they see fit, allowing researchers to work on projects that they might not be able to pursue with more restrictive funding sources. “I think one advantage of fellowships like this is that they are, in some sense, no strings attached. You have the flexibility to use it to pursue high-risk ideas,” says Chandrasekaran, who is planning to use the funding to work on the optimization of algorithm selection.“If a practitioner wants to solve a specific problem in their field, they often need to understand the details of an algorithm,” he explains. “If you want to drive from point A to B in a car, you only need to know how to operate a car, not the mechanics of how the car works. We’re not yet in the same place with algorithms,” he explains. “Right now if a practitioner asks for a recommendation for an algorithm with reliable and predictable performance, computer scientists are often only able to respond with, ‘Try all of them and see what works for you.’ I’d like to use mathematical optimization to provide algorithmic tools that are like cars; you should not need to know the inner workings of these algorithms to be able to employ them reliably, easily, and efficiently.”Presented annually since 1955 by the Sloan Foundation, the fellowships are awarded in chemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, evolutionary and computational molecular biology, neuroscience, and physics. In addition to Chandrasekaran, this year’s class of Sloan Fellows also includes seven Caltech alumni: William Chueh (BS ’05, MS ’06, PhD ’11), Jillian Dempsey (PhD ’11), Hernan Garcia (PhD ’11), Elaine Hsiao (PhD ’13), Alex Miller (PhD ’11), Surjeet Rajendran (BS ’04), and Ke Xu (PhD ’09).
