Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. 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” Image source: Getty Images. One of today’s most widely watched US ‘hot stocks’ is the ARK Innovation ETF (NYSE: ARKK). This exchange-traded fund has New York-listed shares that trade just like other stocks. Launched on 30 October 2014 and managed by Cathie Wood, the ARKK stock price has delivered blockbuster gains for shareholders, especially in 2020/21. But its runaway success has reversed recently, so is it time to back or bin Cathie Wood?The ARKK stock price explodes and then implodesARK Investment Management specialises in buying companies that display ‘disruptive innovation’. By their very nature, these businesses are modern, highly tech-enabled firms seeking to dethrone incumbent players. The ARK Innovation ETF is the group’s flagship fund, with net assets of $23.1bn at end-April. Typically, ARKK holds 35 to 55 stocks, heavily concentrated in the communication, healthcare, technology, and consumer-cyclical sectors. This ‘future focus’ has sent the ARKK stock price shooting skywards.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…From roughly five years ago (18 May 2016) to 19 February 2020, the ARKK stock price exploded from $18.31 to $60.37. That’s a near-230% surge, easily thrashing the S&P 500 index’s 64% gain. But as Covid-19 spread worldwide, the ETF’s shares plunged. On 18 March 2020, they had crashed to $34.69, collapsing by three-sevenths (42.5%) in a single month. That slashed the gain since May 2016 to below 90%. Ouch.ARKK goes nuts in 2020/21The recovery of the ARKK stock price since March 2020 has been a biblical comeback worthy of Lazarus. Today, the stock stands at $109.72, more than triple (+216%) its March 2020 low. $1,000 invested in ARKK at the low is now worth $316. Then again, the ARKK stock price went much higher earlier this year. On 12 February, it peaked at $156.58, but has since tumbled. Over the past three months, this hot stock has crashed by three-tenths (30%).Remarkably, investors buying ARKK on 18 May 2016 and selling at the February 2021 top would have made a 736% return in under five years. After recent weakness in the ARKK stock price, that return has been cut back to 499%. This still massively exceeds the S&P 500’s 105% gain over the same period.Three lessons for investorsFirst, like mythical Icarus, the highest-flying shares often fall fastest to earth. When financial gravity finally takes hold, yesterday’s stars frequently become today’s dogs. Likewise, when market bubbles burst, declines can be both sudden and dramatic. With inflation (rising prices) and interest rates seen going higher, the future ARKK stock price is unlikely to resemble its spectacular past.Second, the crazy performance of the ARKK stock price has been built on the back of highly concentrated bets on key companies and sectors. While such intensive investing can produce spectacular returns, it can also be disastrous when stock prices and liquidity nosedive.Third, almost all fund managers with meteoric performances eventually crash back to earth. It happen to Bill Miller at Legg Mason and to Neil Woodford in the UK. Even Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has underperformed the S&P 500 in recent years. Hence, Cathie Wood might well become the latest in a long line of fund managers to be humbled by Mr Market’s fickleness.Finally, would I invest in ARKK at the current share price? No, because I’m an old-school value investor, so this go-go growth fund’s stock isn’t for me. The ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) stock price is down 30% in 3 months. It still looks risky!

Analysis: Counting down the Leicester Tigers comeback

first_imgThe opening evening of the Premiership season saw Leicester Tigers deliver a stunning comeback victory owing to persistence, composure and a bit of luck …and Harrison’s ice-cool conversion brings Leicester level.Two and a half minutes to go: Accurate exitField position is paramount for Gloucester, if only to ward off any nerves. A long restart down to Will Evans is the right call.The 19 year-old Leicester tyro, who attended Eddie Jones’ senior England training camp a month ago, is up to the task though. He takes the ball nicely……before stepping off his left foot……transferring the ball into his right hand and fending off a chasing Twelvetrees with his left:Purdy and Paddy McAllister must step in to make the tackle:And, with Ben Youngs directing them, Cole and Kitchener robustly resource the breakdown. Slater lends his weight too……but, before kicking, Ben Youngs wants one more man in the ruck to shield him from a potential charge-down with Twelvetrees and McAllister lurking:Thinking clearly amid the harum-scarum finale, the scrum-half calls O’Connor across and into position……before striking a fine clearance:After signing from London Irish in 2012, Thompstone has flourished at Tigers. He is never shy of unglamorous graft, and this is another example of such hard work.The wing chases Ben Youngs’ kick well beyond the touch-judge’s flag, stopping Gloucester from taking a quick lineout:Not only does this mean that Marshall is prevented from launching a counter, it also means that the hosts’ faltering set-piece is thrust under the microscope once more.Two minutes to go: Three turnoversAgain, McCaffrey and Kitchener focus on the front of Gloucester’s lineout as Dawidiuk prepares to throw:And again, Gareth Evans steps out to allow Galarza to come forward:This time, it is Rowan rather than McAllister who assumes the role of lifter, but Leicester mirror their opponents. McCaffrey hurls Kitchener skywards……and although the lifting pod just misses another steal, the ball also evades Galarza so Slater can snaffle it at the tail:With Gloucester disorganised, Ben Youngs senses an opportunity to seize better field position and force them into another lineout.As he shapes to kick from the very next breakdown, both Laidlaw and Heinz begin to scramble back. Galarza has other ideas, though. The Puma stays onside……and wins the ball back for Gloucester by gathering spectacularly after a charge-down:Regrouping, Gloucester move the ball right. Heinz finds Laidlaw……and a miss-pass to Scotland centre Scott hands the hosts a three-on-two situation:Again, Pietersen’s know-how comes to the fore. He rushes up on the outside to cut off the path to Gloucester wing Charlie Sharples, so although Scott is carrying the ball in two hands, he is persuaded against throwing a Hollywood pass that could result in a game-breaking interception. Instead Scott steps inside……where he is met by an exceptional tackle from Smith, another of Leicester’s underrated club men:Smith drives Scott backwards, meaning Laidlaw must change path in an attempt to recycle the ball:As Scott hits the deck, Peter Betham fires in. Having also had to double back on himself, Rowan is in a weak position to aid Laidlaw:Smith shows great awareness to recover his feet and march into a counter-ruck alongside Betham, leaving the ball well alone as Scott tries to place it backwards:Roared on by Kitchener, Smith and Betham make headway. Ben Youngs now looks to pilfer the ball……with O’Connor seizing his moment too as Paul Doran Jones tries to shunt Leicester’s centres off the ball:Smith is eventually driven away from the ball, but this only isolates Scott even further. With Ben Youngs over the top of him, Scott pulls the ball back towards himself in full view of the referee……who awards the penalty to Leicester:While Barnes is explaining his decision, Ben Youngs rushes after the ball. Kitchener moves towards hooker McGuigan and senior statesman Slater, who are immediately weighing up the situation with kicker Harrison:There is a clearly some indecision, but after initially suggesting he is keen to take a shot at goal, Harrison – with Slater in his eye-line – indicates to Barnes that he will be aiming for touch:This may have been a comic moment, but Gloucester hearts would have sunk on watching Harrison’s subsequent kick:The superb strike brings Leicester within striking distance of the try-line:And, for all of the slick phase-patterns introduced by Aaron Mauger, it felt fitting that victory was sealed with a traditional Tigers weapon.Thirty seconds to go: Comeback completeFrom this range, Leicester were obviously going to put their faith in a driving maul. As has become customary, they set up with a flanker – O’Connor in this case – standing in the scrum-half position.But Tigers cannot initiate a drive in the same manner as they would have done last season. Because of new laws introduced this season, it is important to track Will Evans here:The World Rugby amendment is outlined below:Essentially, the ball must transfer to the back of a maul by passing between players, as opposed to a carrier being pushed to the back while still holding the ball. This all means that Will Evans has a vital role.Sure enough, as McGuigan’s throw is taken by Kitchener and O’Connor moves forward to latch on, Will Evans sprints back around:O’Connor burrows into the traditional wedge shape to take the ball……but straightaway transfers it back to Will Evans:From here, the maul gathers momentum. Ben Youngs approaches to direct proceedings and the drive comes in-field away from the touchline, both to reduce the chances of Gloucester forcing it into touch and also to provide a blindside (indicated by the yellow dash) to attack:Of course, the new transfer law also applies to players re-joining a maul, so when Genge is spat out of the side and arcs back around towards Will Evans – still holding the ball– he must adhere to the same procedure:Right in front of Barnes, Genge shows discipline and awareness, joining the tail and taking the ball:At this point, five metres out, Ben Youngs calls for the backs to join the drive. Betham is first there……with Smith and Harrison arriving shortly afterwards:None of them join in front of the ball, and Harrison even takes the ball from Genge……before dotting down to spark the celebrations:This was the first time in Leicester’s 136-year history that they have overturned a 24-point deficit to win a game. An undulating 80 minutes changed course and defied logic throughout. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Show-stopper: Ben Youngs celebrates wildly as Leicester Tigers score to snatch a 38-31 win in Gloucester Credit: Getty Images Every so often, usually in dry conditions on a hard pitch, a chaotic encounter causes witnesses to scratch their heads. On Friday night at Kingsholm, where Leicester Tigers secured an astonishing comeback win over Gloucester, the Premiership campaign began with such a tie.Man of the match Sam Harrison summed up the bedlam in his post-game interview, admitting that he could not highlight a single turning point because “so much had happened” during a bizarre 80 minutes. Leicester’s 38-31 success, snatched from 31-7 down with many of the points scored in the final seconds, certainly beggared belief.Historically, Tigers teams have earned a reputation being obdurate and bloody-minded, eking out results against the odds – sometimes despite stuttering performances. Conversely, Gloucester have capitulated calamitously in recent seasons.But besides reinforcing club stereotypes, the climax to Friday’s thriller underlined the importance of these facets:A strong bench capable of raising intensity and maintaining structureClear-thinking and technical application in high-stakes situationsMaking decisions with conviction and playing to the team’s strengthsAwareness of laws, even newly-introduced onesAppreciation of spaceWe begin our countdown with Gloucester on the attack, seven points ahead.Seven and a half minutes to go: Riding luckWales back-rower Ross Moriarty stationed himself in wide channels for most of the match and carried wonderfully, setting up a try for Matt Scott with a superb first-half offload.Here, with the clock ticking down, he is primed for another explosive run as Gloucester’s replacement scrum-half Willi Heinz finds Billy Twelvetrees:All images courtesy of BT SportHowever, the latter opts to take the ball into contact, stepping off his left foot. Tigers front-row replacements Ellis Genge and George McGuigan combine to make the tackle as Will Evans, another member of Leicester’s young calvary sweeps around:But Evans does not have a chance to contest on the floor. McGuigan swings around Twelvetrees and hurls himself back towards the ball as Moriarty and wing Henry Purdy resource the ruck for Gloucester:Rather than staying on his feet and marching through the breakdown, McGuigan falls into it. Referees are under specific instructions to penalise players that impede opposition scrum-halfs this season, so when Heinz is obstructed……Wayne Barnes is quick to signal that the hosts have an advantage:After the attack fizzles out, Barnes returns to the mark with a clear explanation:Gloucester seem to suffer from muddled thinking, though. Seven in front with four tries scored, the opportunity to forge a 10-point buffer is there.Even so, an immediate discussion between Greig Laidlaw and James Hook suggests the decision is not straightforward. Sure enough, following two prompts from Barnes……skipper Laidlaw explains Gloucester will kick for touch rather than three points:Around 45 metres from the posts, Hook takes the ball, punts into the stand……and Gloucester are presented with a lineout on the Tigers 22.Now, Graham Kitchener had joined the fray in place of young lock Dominic Barrow by this point. His athleticism and nous provided Tigers with a big boost at the set-piece.Here, behind Genge and the excellent Lachlan McCaffrey in a lifting pod of three, Kitchener fixes his eyes on the front of Gloucester’s lineout. Either because of pre-match analysis or a gut feeling, he is clearly anticipating a short throw from hooker Darren Dawidiuk:Sure enough, Jacob Rowan and Gareth Evans step back to allow Argentina international Mariano Galarza – a regular target – through from the back of the lineout:McCaffrey jumps, lifted by the fully-extended arms of Genge with Kitchener supporting from behind, and flicks the ball on to the Leicester side with his left hand:Following strong midfield carries from industrious backs Adam Thompstone and Matt Smith – two more replacements – Ben Youngs, another to come off the bench, can find Harrison……who boots towards the 10-metre line to safety:Having just lost a crucial lineout, Gloucester are immediately put under more set-piece pressure.Five and a half minutes to go: Maul wrecking missionThis time, Moriarty is hauled into the air. Rowan and Gareth Evans look to establish a driving maul as their colleague takes Dawidiuk’s throw unopposed because Tigers have opted not to lift anyone.Instead, they place faith in their maul defence. Watch Dan Cole, Will Evans and Ed Slater:Evans and Slater drive from the right as Moriarty lands……while Cole and Kitchener hit from the left, splintering that side of Gloucester’s maul set-up by taking out lifter Galarza.Justifiably, Moriarty looks dubious as to the legality of these tactics:Barnes sees no offence, though. Cole and Kitchener spin through the maul while Slater has battled through to take hold of ball-carrier Rowan:When everything collapses, Barnes awards the scrum to Tigers:Moriarty’s gesture towards the touch judge says it all. He thinks Cole and Kitchener and come around the side……but the turnover stands and Leicester have a scrum.Four and a half minutes to go: Striking from deepStill approximately 60 metres from the Gloucester try-line, this Leicester scrum is hardly an dangerous attacking platform. Indeed, the Tigers backs line up close to their own 22:However, when the front-rows engage……there is some instability. And as the scrum wobbles, Ben Youngs keeps his eyes firmly on Barnes, edging towards the back foot:This anticipation means that when Barnes raises his whistle to blow for a Leicester free-kick……McCaffrey has the ball in his hands under two seconds later, just as both back-rows peel off:Ever alert, McCaffrey taps……and can charge away. Note that he runs slightly infield, heading towards a potential breakdown 20 metres in from the touchline.As New Zealand showed throughout the recent Bledisloe Cup series, this is a prime position from which to exploit the blindside. With Heinz sweeping in behind, Gloucester have nobody in that 15-metre channel:This problem is exacerbated as McCaffrey’s run ties in the entire Gloucester back-row (in these next three screenshots, the numbers represent the players’ positions at the preceding scrum).As Tigers flankers Brendon O’Connor and Will Evans arrive in support, Cherry and White locks Tom Savage and Galarza fold around the corner and on to the openside:Moments later, the Gloucester front-row also gravitates to the ruck. Moriarty tries his luck with a counter-ruck, while Laidlaw – now at fly-half – calls more forwards across.Leicester scrum-half Ben Youngs arrives to find the opposition forwards bunched together extremely tightly:As he darts to the left, seven members of the Gloucester pack are within five metres of the ruck:Galarza is not too far away either, so while you could throw a blanket over the home team’s forwards – to use a gruesome cliche – Leicester’s tight five have spread out to offer options on both sides of the breakdown.Emerging from the loosehead side of scrum to provide width, Genge can latch on to Ben Youngs’ pass and past Gloucester’s outside edge. The reaction of the opposition’s decision-making backs is telling.Heinz circles back towards the blindside, Tom Marshall hurtles up from the back-field to plug the space:As Genge trucks forward, Heinz and Marshall must combine to make the tackle:They are therefore caught close to the subsequent ruck. O’Connor has followed up to station himself at first-receiver for the next phase, but Springbok signing JP Pietersen has other ideas.The wing communicates to Ben Youngs that there is space in behind the Gloucester line because Heinz and Pietersen’s opposie wing Marshall, two players that would normally be patrolling the back-field, are otherwise engaged:Pietersen times his chase perfectly as Ben Youngs chips over. Meanwhile, O’Connor puts his head down and sprints through in pursuit:Sailing over the head of Heinz and out of reach of covering Hook, Ben Youngs’ kick hits the hard Kingsholm turf:Pietersen aims a subtle nudge into Heinz’s back……and calmly secures possession:Demonstrating all 69 Tests of experience, Pietersen instinctively spins back on himself and towards his onrushing support, sucking in Hook:A simple pass to O’Connor brings the try… TAGS: Leicester Tigers But at the business end, Tigers were precise. They had a sniff of victory and pounced. More so than a maximum haul of five league points – and Kingsholm will see plenty of home wins this season – such ruthlessness will please Richard Cockerill hugely.Watch the Aviva Premiership exclusively on BT Sportlast_img read more

Naoum will become the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem following the retirement of Archbishop Suheil Dawani next year.Jerusalem holds a special place in the heart of all Christians and Anglicans from around the world. Many would have expected to attend, but Covid-19 travel restrictions meant that overseas visitors were kept to a minimum, with the service broadcast live over the Internet.In his sermon, Dawani spoke of the meanings of the two words in Naoum’s new title. “First of all, the title of bishop means that from today onward Dean Hosam will join the ranks of episcopal leadership not only here in this diocese, but also within the worldwide Anglican Communion,” Dawani said.“But the second meaning is equally as important. For the title Coadjutor means that, in due course, then-Bishop Hosam will succeed me as Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem. At that same time, he will also become one of the Heads of the Churches here in the City of the Holy One. And so today is the first step towards his assuming a greater mantle of leadership within Christ’s One Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church here in Jerusalem.“Hosam, in this coming year as Coadjutor Bishop, we must join our efforts, working hard at all levels: ecumenically, institutionally, and in our relationships with our sister churches and partners, both locally and internationally. This is the basic compass that will guide you in your future leadership.” Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

The bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan also observed that the UP state government can approach the Chairman, Rajya Sabha for sanction for prosecution under section 196 CrPC, considering that Singh is a Rajya Sabha member. Noting that in view of the issues raised, the matter needs to be decided expeditiously, the bench listed the matter for hearing in the third week of March. In a press conference, on 12.08.2020, Singh had made certain statements regarding which an FIR was lodged with the Police Station Hazratganj, Lucknow, under Sections 153-A, 153-B, 501, 505(1), 505(2) IPC. After investigation, the Investigating Officer filed a charge sheet on 07.09.2020 under the aforesaid sections. Vide order dated 17.09.2020 the State government granted sanction for prosecution of the petitioner under section 196 CrPC. On 04.12.2020, the Additional Sessions Judge, the designated Special Judge MP/MLA Court, Lucknow took cognisance and issued summons to the applicant. The said order was challenged in a petition under Section 482 CrPC before the Allahabad High Court. The bench headed by Justice Bhushan was hearing Singh’s SLP against the Allahabad High Court order of January 21, rejecting the challenge to the said order. As regards the submission that the sanction under Section 196 CrPC should have been granted by the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha, the HC noted that the wording of Section 196 CrPC clearly indicates that the power to grant sanction for prosecution is vested in both the Central Government and the State Government, that the said provision uses the word “or” which means that either one out of the Central Government or the State Government can grant the sanction as the case may be. In a separate writ petition, Singh has moved the Supreme Court seeking quashing of multiple FIRs lodged against him in various districts of Uttar Pradesh, saying they have been “maliciously instituted to unleash political vendetta”. Senior Advocate Vivek Tankha, for the petitioner, argued that numerous FIRs ave come to be lodged across the state, all of which are identical. Accordingly, the bench issued notice on why the FIRs should not be clubbed. When the matter had come up for the first time last week, Mr. Tankha had pressed that a non-bailable warrant has been issued against his client by the trial court. However, on that day, the High Court judgment was not on record and hence, the bench had refused to stay the warrant Background As per PTI reports, Singh said he had conducted a press conference at Lucknow of Uttar Pradesh on August 12, last year wherein he had alleged that the state government was favouring one particular caste over the others. In the said press conference, the petitioner had merely raised certain social issues, namely neglect and apathy of the government towards a certain class of society, he said in his writ petition filed through advocate Sumeer Sodhi. The AAP leader said after the press conference, multiple FIRs were registered against him at the instance of the BJP’s members in various police stations in different districts of Uttar Pradesh. Singh said the writ petition has been filed by him for direction to quash the FIRs registered against him, as these FIRs are manifestly attended with malafides and have been maliciously instituted to unleash political vendetta against the petitioner and to harass him. The said FIRs have been filed against the petitioner out of the malice and sheer political vendetta with intent to coerce, harass and intimidate the petitioner as a part of larger ploy to muzzle the opposition leaders, from speaking up against the government of Uttar Pradesh, Singh’s application said. The Rajya Sabha MP further claimed that the content of the said FIRs are verbatim similar and have been filed across several districts across a length of more than 700 kilometres of the state on the same day within a span of a few hours. He said he is aware of eight FIRs filed in eight districts including at Lucknow, Sant Kabir Nagar, Khiri, Bagpat, Muzaffarnagar, Basti and at Aligarh. The petitioner submits that the identical FIRs have been filed across several districts across the entire length of the State of Uttar Pradesh pointing very clearly to the fact that FIRs are only aimed at harassing the petitioner and his political associates, he said. Singh contended that the said FIRs are a threat to the petitioner’s exercise of the right to free speech, right to assemble peacefully; right to move freely throughout the territory of India which are guaranteed under Article 19 of the Indian Constitution. The press conference was an exercise through which the petitioner was raising pertinent social and political issues, and the said FIRs have been filed with the sole intention to stifle the voice of opposition which is fundamental to a functional democracy, he added. He said the FIRs filed against him are “frivolous, baseless, vexatious and are figments of imagination of the complainant and the police department”. It is pertinent to mention that there has not been even a single incident of violence or disharmony as a result of the statements made by the petitioner in the press conference and the said multiple FIRs are in teeth of the settled law enunciated by the top court in various verdicts, where it has been held that there can be no second FIR with respect to same offence. Singh said free and fair elections are a part of the basic structure of the Constitution and any attempt to prevent the opposition from taking part in campaigning or raising pertinent political and social issues is an assault on the basic structure of the Constitution. He alleged that FIRs have been registered against him on the directions of the Officer of Additional Chief Secretary (Home) to the Station in-charge of the several police stations as per the information and genuine belief of the petitioner. The state machinery in complete derogation of their duties and responsibilities conferred upon it by law have been involved in mounting undue pressure upon the petitioner by threatening to take coercive action against the petitioner in order to make him succumb to their unbridled envy, Singh added. He said the sole aim of the state machinery is to prevent the petitioner from campaigning in Uttar Pradesh and from carrying out political activities there in the run up to the elections in 2022. In light of the aforesaid, the petitioner prays that the aforesaid FIRs registered against him be quashed as they are nothing but an abuse of process aimed at stifling the voice of opposition in a democracy and the petitioner’s fundamental rights,” he said. Alternatively, he also sought transfer of the FIRs lodged in connection with the press conference of August 12, 2020 and related political activities of the petitioner outside of Uttar Pradesh.
