A UK share I think matches the Warren Buffett investment style Christopher Ruane | Friday, 19th March, 2021 | More on: SPX Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: The Motley Fool Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Investing guru Warren Buffett is now worth an estimated $100bn. No wonder so many investors try to apply his straightforward principles in their own investment decisions.Lately I have been considering a UK share I think meets a lot of the investment criteria Buffett typically applies to buying shares. Here I share why.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…Little known but much lovedThe stock in question is Spirax-Sarco Engineering (LSE: SPX).If you have never heard of it, you are not alone. The specialist engineering firm is not a household name. That is because its main focus is B2B. It supplies engineering products and services to a wide range of customers around the globe. Its main profit driver is steam, but it also has electric thermal solutions and a well-regarded pump business.Steam hardly sounds like the business of the future! But in fact, all of the company’s offerings have applications in industrial processes such as manufacturing.Warren Buffett talks about a business having a “moat” – a competitive advantage which makes it difficult for other companies to muscle in on its business area. Spirax-Sarco’s proprietary engineering designs, talented team, and extensive customer relationships form such a moat in my view. If a customer purchased a pump from them before, they would be the obvious choice to maintain or replace it.Another characteristic that matches Warren Buffett’s investment criteria is the company’s pricing power. Pumps and valves may sound like a commodity market. But, in fact, a lot of Spirax-Sarco revenues come from bespoke solutions designed for a specific customer situation. If a company is running a factory, oil rig, or power station and has to take it offline because of a faulty component, the loss can run into thousands of pounds an hour in some cases. So the sorts of customers Spirax-Sarco targets tend to value quality over price. That gives the company pricing power.Outstanding dividend recordThere aren’t many UK shares that have raised dividends annually for decades.Spirax-Sarco raised its dividend last week by 7% – a healthy increase. But what impresses me even more is that is just the latest annual raise in an unbroken stretch covering half a century.Of course, to keep raising dividends in the future, the company will need to maintain and grow earnings. Revenue fell 4% last year and the company only eked out a 1% increase in pre-tax profits. A slowdown in business activity is bad for demand, and any future recession could impact the company negatively.Even Warren Buffett makes mistakesSuch a share is bound to have its admirers. That pushes the price up. Even after all those dividend increases, Spirax-Sarco is only yielding 1%. That reflects the fact that the share is so popular and heavily bought.In 2016, Buffett bought a company which made precision engineering components for mission-critical applications. Yet in his insightful letter to shareholders last month, Buffett called the purchase a mistake as he “paid too much”.Could the current price for Spirax-Sarco be too high? It’s just 8% lower than its all-time peak. If it falls out of fashion or the business starts to struggle, it has a long way to fall down. But its business model gives it a lot of the characteristics of a share I’d choose using Warren Buffett investment criteria.

FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge
Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Morrisons (LSE: MRW) shares have not given a good return to investors in the last few years. Shares are down about 30% since its market peak in August 2018. The drop in market capitalisation of the company is one of the reason for the demotion of the stock from the FTSE 100 index to FTSE 250 index.I would like to understand the various pros and cons of investing in this company.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…Morrisons Company’s fundamentalsThe company’s revenue for the fiscal year 2021 grew by 0.4% year-over-year to £17.6bn. At the outset it looks like muted growth. However, when we exclude fuel sales, total revenue grew by 8.9%. Fuel sales were down due to the lockdown and are expected to pick up this year.For retail businesses a more common metric is like-for-like sales. It excludes new store openings or closures in the current or previous financial year. At Morrisons, like-for-like sales excluding fuel and VAT grew by 8.6%. Tesco will release its full-year results next month. If we compare the third quarter results, Morrisons grew faster at 7.8%, compared to Tesco’s 5.7% growth.In the past, the company has been slow in its shift to online sales. However, due to recent partnerships with Ocado, Amazon, and Deliveroo, online sales are now picking up fast. The company’s online sales tripled in the fiscal year 2021. The unit is profitable which is very good.Its ‘Morrisons on Amazon’ service is now available in 50 towns and cities. The service lets Amazon members shop for Morrisons goods on its platform. It already accounts for more than 10% of sales in the majority of its stores where the company offers the service.In my opinion online sales could help the company to grow its revenues in the next couple of years. Morrisons is also supplying its groceries in the Amazon Fresh platforms. This gives the company the opportunity to grow its revenues in multiple channels. It has also extended the McColl’s partnership for a further three years and will convert 300 of its stores to the Morrisons Daily format. These stores offer a full range of Morrisons convenience range while being owned and operated by McColl’s.Morrisons shares are currently trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 45. The high ratio is due to lower profits caused by additional Covid-19 costs. The forward P/E is 12.5, which suggests that analysts are expecting a strong rebound in the company’s profits next year. Of course, forecasts can change.Risks to considerThe supermarket industry is getting very competitive. Since many consumers prefer online shopping they can easily compare prices and this could put pressure on the profit margins of the company. Morrisons has to face competition from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Lidl, Aldi, and Marks & Spencer. The company has benefitted from the lockdown when most of the other stores were closed. Online sales also got a boost due to more people making online purchases during the lockdown. With the reopening of most retail stores next month, that growth rate might slow.Final view on Morrisons sharesThe company’s revenue growth is finally showing some improvement. Management’s restructuring efforts are paying off. However, due to the price competition, I will keep the stock in my watchlist and further assess the value competitiveness relative to other major retailers.

Truly a win-win for both the public and the environment.”To commemorate the anniversary, volunteers with the Orange Audubon Society will be stationed along the drive on Sunday, April 29th, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with scopes, bird books, and loaner binoculars to assist visitors with identifying wildlife.The 11-mile drive covers a network of wetlands, levees, and canals, providing a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities. A free self-guided audio tour, which can be streamed through mobile devices and online, is also available along the wildlife drive and provides visitors with a narrative on the area’s history, wildlife, and district-led restoration efforts. Several vehicle pullovers on the drive provide opportunities for stopping at preferred sites.Once farmed land, the area was acquired by the district between 1988 and 2001 with the goal of reducing discharges of nutrients to the lake to protect water quality, promote water storage and provide critical wetland functions. This multi-benefit restoration approach on the North Shore relies upon the district’s expertise in science, engineering, construction and wildlife management.Housed within the district’s 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore restoration area, the wildlife drive opened in May 2015. Its success is attributed to not only housing a diverse bird population but also providing unprecedented access to the unique area. Home to 369 species of birds, visitors should also watch for alligators, turtles, otters, raccoon, snakes, coyotes and bobcats.The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive is open year-round between sunrise and sunset on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays. There is no cost to visit the wildlife drive.More information about recreational opportunities on lands owned and managed by the district is available at www.sjrwmd.com/recreation.

Today, she says she recognizes there is a lot of hurt and pain in individuals and she seeks to be a catalyst to the path towards healing.Guillory travels the country speaking to different groups about self-care, healing and hope and her talk to the TCU community focused on how it’s OK not to be OK.“There are five steps to healing and the first is to breathe and be still,” Guillory said. “The second step is don’t do life alone. The third step is be honest, fourth step is be hopeful and the fifth step is be grateful.”5 tips to healingVenngage InfographicsGuillory is an adjunct faculty member in the department of social work who encouraged her students to attend the event.“I’m a social work major so I think the biggest thing I’m going to get out of this is an awareness of what she does and what I’ll be doing,” junior Koty Mattocks said.The TCU Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services luncheon asked more from the audience than for them to just sit and listen.“Dancing is always an element,” Guillory said. “Dancing just gets the body flowing and if you’re uncomfortable, that’s OK because everybody’s doing it with you.”Besides moving their feet, the audience had to mingle with the person next to them.“We need connection,” Guillory said. “We can be surrounded by people, but be isolated and so I just say, hey turn over and say hello or show them what you’re grateful for and I’ve found it to be really successful.”When audience members were asked to compliment three people around them, smiles filled their faces. Guillory said complimenting others takes very little time and costs no money so she wonders why people don’t do it more often. She challenges herself to compliment five students a day.Nearing the end of the inclusiveness luncheon, audience members were asked to write down a goal of their own they want to incorporate in their daily lives.Guillory said she has been able to use her struggles as a reminder that pain doesn’t have to define you.

Facebook printThe Lone Star Film Festival returned to Fort Worth this weekend with five days of near constant programming for attendees to enjoy. Here are some of my top selections from the festival.BOOM! A Film About The Sonics Just like punk rock, Jordan Albertsen’s documentary about a mostly unknown band from the Pacific Northwest hits hard and loud, keeping you enthralled throughout. On the surface, the film appears to be about how a local band from Tacoma, Washington in the 1960s influenced musicians from Britain today, but a more personal story emerges. The true center of the film is Buck Ormsby, a musician himself who produced The Sonics’ first album and his faith that this band’s sound could capture the world. And he was right. The film’s connection to Ormsby became even more clear in Q&A with Albersten after the screening. Albertsen described that the final push to create an idea that he had been imagining for nearly a decade was his conversations with Ormsby over the years and the signs of his unspoken but clearly declining health. Regardless of your knowledge of the genre or the people being interviewed, what comes through is just pure and honest emotion from all involved that music often conveys.

Throughout the film, the audience can experience the process of creating a piece of art that both expresses something simultaneously universal and personal while balancing that with what is expected or can sell. That push for constant refinement, for even more personal poems, comes primarily from one of the coaches Lauren Whitehead. The film follows a traditional sports documentary style, something that producer Nikhil Melnechuk spoke about in a Q&A after the screening, with a few exceptions of music video-like renditions of some of the poems used during the competition. Overall, these two styles don’t fully work together but it is the content, imagery and skill in those poems that carry the film. Two of the most powerful performances in the film are the least produced: just the poet revealing their most private selves.

Reilly and Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix as the titular Sisters brothers as they track down their former associate John Morris (Jake Gyllenhaal) and a chemist turn prospector Hermann Kermit Warm (Riz Ahmed). The world in which the characters live in is one of frequent violence and the film never shys away from it, but it’s the quieter moments of reflection and dialogue between the characters that are the most memorable aspects. There are several scenes where two characters discuss their philosophy next to a campfire under a striking sky. This unexpectedly character driven film has an ending that some might find anticlimactic, where one might only realize what the climax of the film truly was five minutes after it occurred on screen, but it matches the more realistic tone of the film where life doesn’t have the resolution that one expects in a blockbuster. The acting is superb where even the star-studded cast fades away into their western personas and it holds the audience’s attention when the plot occasionally becomes too minimal before catching them again.

WhatsApp Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Advertisement RANPs Paula Ryan and Sheila RyanSERVICES for patients with respiratory and skin conditions across the UL Hospitals Group are being significantly enhanced with confirmation that the group has received accreditation for two new RANP (registered advanced nurse practitioner) posts.RANPs are the highest level of clinical experts in the nursing profession in Ireland today.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The new posts in the UL Hospitals Group are also nationally significant in being the first in the country covering dermatology and adult respiratory services.Paula Ryan from Oola (respiratory) and Sheila Ryan from Ahane (dermatology) have been selected for the posts and it is expected that they will be officially registered as ANPs in the coming months.It follows UL Hospitals receiving accreditation from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland to create the posts, a crucial step in the process.Margaret Gleeson, chief director of Nursing and Midwifery, UL Hospitals Group, said: “This is a hugely positive development for our patients in terms of access to the service, enhancing the patient experience and leading to better outcomes.
