Enter Your Email Address Is the stock market crash finally over? I’d buy this FTSE 250 dividend stock anyway Investor appetite for riskier assets has received a shot in the arm in recent days. For the moment the recent stock market crash is but a memory. The FTSE 100 climbed to two-week highs at the end of this shortened week and FTSE 250 stocks followed them higher. Britain’s second-tier index was actually trading close to one-month highs.Signs of slowing Covid-19 infection rates have caused share investors to break out their cheque books en masse. It still pays to be prepared, of course, given the fluid nature of the coronavirus tragedy. Any signs of fresh trouble could drive global share indices through the floor again.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…Giant dividend yieldsIt makes sense for share investors to keep protecting themselves with some wise stock buys then. Tritax Big Box (LSE: BBOX) is one great safe haven to buy despite increasing coronavirus infections in the UK, I feel.I’d argue that this FTSE 250 stock looks too good to miss at current prices. It carries a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 18.2 times, way below its historical norms around the mid-20s mark. What’s more, Tritax carries monster dividend yields of 5.5% and 5.8% for 2020 and 2021.I admit that big dividend yields are ten-a-penny following this most recent share market crash. With the Covid-19 crisis set to persist for months yet, and the global economy set for a painful and prolonged recession, a great many of these look like classic investor traps. But Tritax Big Box is not a share that falls into this category.Rental resilienceThe FTSE 250 share — which provides so-called big box logistics and warehousing spaces — underlined its robustness in fresh financials on Wednesday.Tritax isn’t totally immune from the economic consequences of the coronavirus crisis. Few companies are. It said this week that some of its clients are experiencing “unprecedented disruption” because of the government-imposed lockdown. This has had an “immediate impact on their near-term cash flows,” the property play added. Amd that it is talking with customers about how to get through the pandemic.Despite these troubles, however, Tritax said that it still expects to collect 96% of rents by the end of May. These are in respect of advanced quarterly rental payments that were due by April 1.Don’t fear another stock market crashThere are two major reasons why Tritax continues to operate resolutely. Firstly, a large number of blue-chip clients use its network of nearly 60 big boxes, companies that are more financially robust to withstand times of crisis like these. Indeed, its top five customers by income — Amazon, Tesco, Morrisons, Co-op and Howdens — account for more than a third of total income.Secondly, as this list shows, a vast amount of Tritax’s rents are sourced from firms in currently-defensive sectors like e-commerce, food retail and third-party logistics like postal couriers. No wonder the business vowed to continue paying quarterly dividends and eyed a full-year target of 7p per share for 2020.I consider Tritax, with its high-quality customer base and rock-solid balance sheet, to be a brilliant buy in these troubled times. I’d be very happy to buy it today, even though another stock market crash could be around the corner. I think it’s too cheap for long-term investors to miss.
Recent advances in the measurement of bedforms beneath active ice streams have been made using ground-based grid profiling using impulse radar systems operating with centre frequencies in the 3–5 MHz range. Surveys of Rutford Ice Stream and Pine Island Glacier have shown that features such as mega-scale glacial lineations with topographic relief of as little as 3 m can be traced for many kilometres downstream under more than 2 km of fast-moving ice. In the discussion of these data, it is often asked ‘How is it possible to map such fine-scale topography with such a low-frequency radar’. In answering that question, the key point is the distinction between the precision of a radar range measurement to a single, isolated reflective interface and the ability to resolve the presence of two closely-spaced interfaces of similar reflectivity (commonly referred to as the vertical resolution). This paper will discuss and illustrate this distinction and use the case study of data acquired over Pine Island Glacier to examine the limits of precision of the radar range measurement.

He said things are progressing smoothly.“Right now we are on stream, things are moving nicely. At the moment, range-wise, we are about 80% complete with that. We have to install some target mechanisms as we are moving the number of targets up from 14 to 24,” Persaud said.He added, “We’ve been getting a lot of support from the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and Brigadier Patrick West. They have been instrumental in ensuring that we are where we are today.”The Fullbore captain added that as it relates to team preparation, the unit has been progressing as well, with regular shoots on the weekend, the latest being last weekend.“The team has started training. We’ve been working a lot at the weekends and we are moving along nicely,” Persaud said adding that ammunition for the tournament will be in the country soon.The GuyanaNRA has over the years produced the goods to keep the Golden Arrowhead flying high at the championships, and the world at large.Last year, at the World Long Range Championship at Camp Perry, Ohio, USA the West Indies team featured more than 50% Guyanese shooters.This year, the event is expected to feature shooters from Australia, England, Canada, USA and Scotland.
The Coach who is reputed for rescuing teams out of relegation or steering them to promotion which he did with teams like Wikki Tourist, Zamfara United, Sunshine Stars and now Gombe United boasted that he has all it takes to succeed in the top league.“You see the NNL is quite different with the NPFL, in the NNL 70% is power while 30% is intelligence but in the NPFL the reverse is the case as you require 70% intelligence and 30% power. I want to assure the club fans that i have all it takes in me to put the team in sound putting.“Premier league is not new to me. In 2002 I was with Zamfara for two seasons and in 2004 i was with Niger Tornadoes. I have also been ghe coach of Sunshine Stars”.The Coach who hails from Zaria in Kaduna State also spoke of how he would go about building his squad, pointing out that he would recruit additional players to strengthen observed weaknesses.“We are trying to reinforce the team with one or two players particularly in the attacking department. So, we are looking for who will put the ball in the net and we have already invited possible ones we think will improve our scoring ability.“We are also going to fortify our defence so that we will come out with a strong team at the end of the day”“Now we are in camp, the focus now is NNL Super 4, after that we will continue to build up and go for pre season in a different town so that players and officials will have full concentration”The team currently train twice in Gombe and the spirit in the camp is highShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Joshua TekidekGombe United made it back to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) after two seasons in the Nigeria National League (NNL) but the Technical Adviser, Hassan Abubakar is talking tough and predicting they wouldn’t be a pushover despite their returnee status.Abubakar is credited to have masterminded their return and he promising that the North East club will surprise Nigerians when the season began.“I want to surprise Nigerians, we will start on a strong footing and before or by mid season I want to assure you that we will be somewhere at the top”, said a boastful Abubakar.
