FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Brands don’t come much more iconic than FTSE 250-listed Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings (LSE:AML). It exudes the essence of luxury and is James Bond’s vehicle of choice. However, the stylishly enticing brand has plenty of financial failings. The British independent manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers has an insane commercial history. In fact, it’s faced bankruptcy no less than seven times.Can desirability alone sustain this FTSE 250 stock?In its preliminary results for the 12 months to 31 December 2020, total revenue fell 38%. And it reported a pre-tax loss of £466m. The company also wrote off £98m after abandoning plans to introduce its Rapide E electric vehicles and other products. The R&D time and money spent on these projects is now lost. Car manufacturing is a very pricey business and luxury vehicles even more so. This week the company also launched a £70m debt offering in secured notes due 2025. The company now has a market value of £48.8bn and earnings per share are negative.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…Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll bailed the company out in a £500m rescue package in January 2020, and new leadership is now implementing a turnaround plan. Unfortunately, the pandemic has thrown a spanner in the works of its progress, but many investors remain bullish for the future.The company has only been publicly listed on the FTSE 250 since October 2018. And the trajectory of the Aston Martin share price is a depressing sight indeed. Unfortunately, its share price has come crashing down 94% since initial public offering (IPO). And the Aston Martin share price saw extreme volatility throughout 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic crushed its revenue streams. Aston Martin looks aheadOn a more positive note, Aston Martin successfully launched its DBX line of luxury SUVs. These cost £158k each. It’s enjoying strong customer demand and plans its first new DBX variant in Q3 2021.It’s also proved to be well prepared for Brexit. To-date, manufacturing operations have not been jolted by any supply chain disruption. This seems to be enough to encourage investor interest as the Aston Martin share price has been rising since the results came out on February 25.The company hopes to sell around 6,000 cars this year, lifting this to 10k by 2024 or 2025. Research and studies have shown worldwide growth in wealth, which is what many luxury brands are banking on to boost future sales. But if this slows or inflation rears its ugly head, then it could hamper luxury sales growth. Founded in 1913, Aston Martin has a distinguished heritage fraught with difficulties. While it’s easy to get caught up in the glamour and desirability of the brand, that alone can’t guarantee shareholder riches. I can’t forget it’s risen from the ashes of all those bankruptcies, each of which will have cost investors dearly.The FTSE 250 supercar maker issued close to £250m in shares last year to raise cash, besides raising $1.1bn at a costly interest rate of 10.5%. I think it’s more likely that the company would further dilute the share price with another share offering before opting for bankruptcy again if times got really tough.Hopefully, it won’t come to that and it will instead pull off an amazing financial transformation. Nevertheless, I’m not willing to take the risk. Therefore, I won’t be adding Aston Martin shares to my Stocks and Shares ISA anytime soon.

Updating Breaking News: Apopka game cancelled; no date set for completion

first_img 2 COMMENTS Blue Darters led 14-6 at halftime, but lightning delay eventually leads to postponementUpdated at 10:40 PM – After a two-hour lightning delay, the game between Apopka and Miami Norland High Schools was cancelled with Apopka leading 14-6 at halftime. According to the pressbox announcer, both schools agreed to complete the game at a date to be determined. It was a beautiful night for football at Roger Williams Field on the campus of Apopka High School. Mild temperatures with a nice breeze and an overcast sky held on for two quarters.But then the bottom fell out of the sky.The Apopka Blue Darters took a 14-6 halftime lead against the Miami Norland Vikings before rain and lightning intervened.  A mandatory evacuation of the field cleared-out a capacity crowd in the Blue Darter’s opening home game of the season. Jecoryan Davis-Hamilton ran for 132 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries; the last coming on a 7-yard touchdown run with 33 seconds remaining in the second quarter. Senior cornerback Chance Bush filled in as running back and ran for 32 yards on eight carries.Hamilton capped off Apopka’s second drive with a 13-yard touchdown run, followed by a Bush two-point-conversion run that gave Apopka an 8-0 lead with 3:42 left in the first quarter. The Blue Darter defense once again shined, particularly inside the 20-yard line where they stopped Norland three times on fourth down. However with 4:41 left in the second quarter, senior quarterback Alec Carr ran 50 yards, and then threw a 13-yard touchdown pass, however the two-point conversion attempt was stopped by Apopka, who kept an 8-6 lead.On the Blue Darter’s final drive of the half, Hamilton gave Apopka breathing room after a late hit pushed them back to their own 10-yard line when he ran for 25 yards to the Blue Darter 35 yard line. Five plays later Hamilton hit Bush on a short pass, but Bush broke two tackles to gain 20 yards and gave the Blue Darters a first down at the Viking 30 yard line. Three plays later, Hamilton scored his second touchdown of the evening on a 7-yard touchdown. The extra point was blocked, which gave Apopka a 14-6 lead.

Maternal Graffiti: A Mothers Day Tribute on the Boardwalk

first_imgA daughter pens a message to mom on the window of the Bangles N Bows shop on the 1300 block of the Ocean City Boardwalk on Mother’s Day. What started on Sunday with an Ocean City Boardwalk merchant writing a card to her mom on a small shop window turned into sprawling tribute to mothers everywhere.Mother’s Day messages at Bangles N Bows.Caitlin Quirk wrote her note on a window at Bangles N Bows on the boardwalk between 13th and 14th streets, then left a bigger one for other people to finish the sentence, “I love my mom because …”Quirk said she figured the responses might fill one of the shop’s three big windows, but by the end of Mother’s Day, across all the windows of her shop and those of the neighboring Onni Gift Shop, grateful children had told the world they love their moms because:“She is my best friend.”“She never gives up.”“She has one good smile.”“She is the glue that holds us together.”And, of course, because, “She makes me bacon.”“Tons of people came out to share why they love their mom on our windows,” Quirk said.last_img read more

O.C. Girls Soccer Team Advances in Thriller

first_imgBy LESLEY GRAHAMOcean City High School’s girls soccer team was all treats and no tricks Thursday afternoon as it advanced to the South Jersey Group 3 semifinal with a win over visiting Cherry Hill West.The Red Raiders won in thrilling fashion on Halloween, defeating the Lions 1-0 by scoring with just 12 seconds remaining in the contest.With under 30 seconds to play, when the game all but looked as if it was headed to overtime, the Red Raiders battled in front of the net and fought to finish the game on their own terms.With a barrage of players moving inside the box, junior Faith Slimmer got a ball to the feet of sophomore Summer Reimet for a one-two punch and a finish on net. The clock read 12 seconds as the Ocean City bench erupted in cheers.Ocean City improved to 20-1-1 on the season, while Cherry Hill West ended the season with an 11-8-2 record.Carly Reighard uses ball control to move past the Cherry Hill West defenders.As the game got underway, Ocean City fell into its normal rhythm of precise passing, controlled ball movement and communication to dominate most of the possession in the first half.The Red Raiders had quite a few quality looks on the net, but Cherry Hill West’s goalkeeper, Michela Auguardro, had some outstanding saves on the afternoon, keeping Ocean City off of the scoreboard.After a hard fought 40 minutes, both teams were scoreless headed into halftime.Ocean City Head Coach Kelly Halliday said at halftime that it wasn’t going to be pretty.“I told them to get up, get their intensity up because the longer it is zero-zero, anything can happen,” Halliday said after the game.Red Raider Faith Slimmer sends one into the box.As the teams took their places to get the second half started, Cherry Hill West seemed to find a bit of momentum on its side, spending more time in the offensive end than in the previous half.Ocean City seemed to be a bit sluggish on the ball, not as crisp as in games past, allowing the Lions to find a bit of life in the second half.But with the minutes waning down and both teams amping up their level of play, Ocean City got back to doing what it does best – aggressive play and smart decisions in the attacking end.Halliday was thrilled with the victory.“I was happy with our effort and I knew once we got one, it would be OK. I just didn’t expect it to be with 12 seconds remaining in the game,” she said with a laugh.The No. 1 seeded Red Raiders will now face the fifth seeded Toms River South Indians on Monday at 2 p.m. at Ocean City’s Carey Stadium for the semifinal matchup.The Red Raiders are all smiles after the hard-fought victory. Ocean City sophomore Summer Reimet, who scored the game winner, looks to take a shot on goal.last_img read more

Widespread Panic Opens With Two The Band Covers, Delivers Seamless Full-Set “Fishwater” Sandwich In Durham

first_imgOn Saturday, the unstoppable colossus of rock known as Widespread Panic continued their run in Durham, North Carolina with the second night of debauchery at the Durham Performing Arts Center.The band returned to the stage well-rested and revving to go. Unleashing the monkey out of the bottle, Dave Schools got the show rolling with a cover of The Band’s “Ophelia”. John Bell’s voice has only gotten better with time, like an aged cask of whiskey that has inherited its oak barrel flavors. However, the highlight of “Ophelia” was Jimmy Herring and JoJo Hermann’s instrumental interplay. The Band tunes kept rolling with “Shape I’m In”, which had some nice JoJo and JB vocal layering before Jimmy Herring threw grease on the fire and sizzled throughout the jam. Widespread hadn’t done “Ophelia > Shape I’m In”—in that order—since their 2016 “Milwookie” run.The head-bobbing rhythms of “Pigeons” retaught the audience how to fly as the band took the music to a psychedelic level. After a slight pause, Widespread mellowed out for a sexy performance of “Gradle”. Turning up the heat, JoJo and JB melded voices again for a hot take on the original “All Time Low”. Once again, Jimmy bided his time until recklessly opening Pandora’s Box, creating a rift in the space-time continuum with JoJo chasing him down the rabbit hole. JoJo also took the liberty of adlibbing some lyrics, altering the line, “Thrown from the top of a Jerry Falwell!”John Bell corralled the soulful spirit of Bill Withers to assist him in vocalizing a particularly nasty “Use Me”, which made its first appearance since the band’s 2017 Halloween run in Vegas. Jimmy Herring pushed the jam to far-distant lands, melting faces at light speed before battling JoJo’s clavinet in a heated duel.“Glory” set the stage and laid the listener upon the operating table while surgeon JoJo Hermann wrenched the still-beating heart from the chest with an amazing “Nobody’s Loss”. The tune rarely surfaces more than once a year, though Saturday’s rendition marked its second performance this year after appearing as part of the day 3 encore at WSP’s destination event, Panic en la Playa Ocho, in January. Many hope this song will stay in the rotation more consistently.To close the first set, Widespread Panic honored to their fallen bandmate, Michael Houser, with “Space Wrangler”. Starting slowly, the intensity rose and fell like the ocean’s tides. Jimmy Herring juggled explosive solos, melting faces before throwing a stick of dynamite with a lit fuse to Dave Schools who chomped it in half, scattering musical gun powder around his side of the stage. As the band walked off stage for setbreak, even their shadowed echoes were still jamming to nothing but heat.Coming back from the intermission, the Panics took a side road detour down to New Orleans with a half helping of a simmering “Fishwater” stew that led into Dr. John’s “I Walk on Guilded Splinters”. JB’s steady diet of fish stew and voodoo had his voice dripping with dirty swamp water. JoJo Hermann’s fingers danced spritely from his synthesizer to the ivory keys of his piano. With one final piano flourish, the rhythm section settled down for a haunted gambol to the bayou. The enchanting lyrics grew louder and louder until the band was joined onstage by spirits conjured for a temporary sojourn with Kalfou.A swift transition kept the juju flowing, as a Schools introduced “Bear’s Gone Fishin’”, a tribute to recently fallen friend and fan Thomas “Bear” Guenther. The fire kept burning with a “Tie Your Shoes” that crashed around the ravenous audience at an insane tempo. After JoJo teased both “Spanish Moon” and “Ride Me High”, the band lingered on the faint rhythm of “Tie Your Shoes” before taking a stroll down Tobacco Road with “Walkin’ (For Your Love)”, which had been scratched from Friday’s setlist in favor of “Imitation Leather Shoes”. This “Walkin’” was worth the wait, featuring a fake-stop before closing out with style and precision and setting the tone for a tender performance of “Gimme”.Herring carved another notch in his wizard staff with another outstanding “Jack” featuring a spirited performance from John Bell. The bouncing, reggae beat of Jerry Joseph’s “Chainsaw City” brought “no bad vibes” and gave a chance for Schools and JoJo to harmonize their backing vocals. Sonny Ortiz knocked around his kit before JoJo’s funky clavinet and Jimmy’s warlock guitar slayed this beast of a song. After JB emitted a “banshee wail” that sounded like a condemned soul’s last earthly noise before descending into fiery bowels of Hell, the music morphed into another Jerry Joseph song, “Climb to Safety”, to remind everyone that “it’s no fun to die alone!”After a short drums section gave Duane Trucks and Sonny Ortiz time to smash their kits, Widespread Panic ended the seamless second set in the same way that it began—with the second half of “Fishwater”. JB, Schools, and JoJo chanted and layered “Mo’ Mo’ Mo” with some sumptuous “Fish stew” raps that elicited amazement from the audience—many of whom had forgotten about the imminent return of “Fishwater” that wrapped the second set into one humongous fish sandwich.The only time the music stopped during the set was during the little pause near the end of “Walkin’”, making for a seamless 92 minutes of second-set nastiness.Returning to stage for a selection of encores, Widespread Panic tipped their metaphorical cap to the audience with a rousing “Good People”. The song is a tribute to the community of dedicated fans who show up with unsurpassable energy to feed to the band time and time again. To cap the scorching second night, the Panic boys paid tribute to Tom Petty with a cover of his “You Wreck Me” for only their sixth time ever.With one last harvest of music on the horizon, Widespread Panic looks to finish out the Durham run tomorrow in the same caliber as D.C. and the Cap—three top-tier runs in three different cities. The new tour schedule is giving them time to welcome the audience on Friday, blow their brains out on Saturday, and heal their souls on Sunday. Well, goodpeople, come get your medicine at tonight’s Sunday service led by Reverend Bell and backed by the best damn band in Heaven and Earth.For a full list of Widespread Panic’s upcoming tour dates, head here.Setlist: Widespread Panic | Durham Performing Arts Center | Durham, NC | 3/30/19Set One: Ophelia > The Shape I’m In, Pigeons, Gradle, All Time Low > Use Me, Glory, Nobody’s Loss, Space Wrangler (66 mins)Set Two: Fishwater > I Walk On Guilded Splinters > Bear’s Gone Fishin’ > Tie Your Shoes > Walkin’ (For Your Love)^ > Gimme > Jack > Chainsaw City > Climb To Safety > Drums > Fishwater (92 mins)Encore: Good People, You Wreck Me (10 mins)Notes ^ w/ pause; ‘The Shape I’m In’ LTP 3/15/18 Wash DC (39 shows); ‘Use Me’ LTP 10/29/17 Las Vegas (50 shows); ‘Spanish Moon’ tease after ‘Tie Your Shoes’last_img read more
