The AstraZeneca share price is reassuringly expensive. I’d buy it in a Stocks and Shares ISA

first_img The AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) share price has been one of the very best performers on the FTSE 100 during the Covid-19 stock market crash. Amid the global health crisis, pharmaceutical companies have really proven their worth.AstraZeneca is up another 3% today after reporting a 12% rise in total first-half revenues to £9.57bn. Core earnings per share rose 24% year-on-year to $2.01. These are the type of results most companies can only dream of right now, and the AstraZeneca share price is flying as a result. It’s up 15% over the last six months, but this is no coronavirus flash in the pan. Over five years, it’s more than doubled.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 success wasn’t inevitable. When Pascal Soriot was appointed chief executive in October 2012, he inherited a seriously troubled company. The group’s drugs pipeline was depleted, key brands had lost exclusivity, and both revenues and profits were down sharply.The AstraZeneca share price is a winnerHe warned the full turnaround would take until 2024, but things have moved ahead of schedule. Today, he reported “further progress with our pipeline, highlighted by the overwhelming success of Tagrisso in the ADAURA trial and with Farxiga.”New medicines revenues have done particularly well, growing 42% to $6.35bn, and at an even more impressive 71% in emerging markets to $1.41bn. Total first-half revenues are up 13% in the US to $4.18bn, and 17% in Europe to $2.45bn.While the pandemic brings “heightened risks and uncertainties,” it’s bought opportunities too, as AstraZeneca works on a vaccine. It now has the capacity to deliver more than two billion doses of AZD1222, and is trialling Calquence and Farxiga to treat patients affected by the virus.Don’t expect a surge in the Astrazeneca share price as a result, as the company’s said it won’t profit from the vaccine during the pandemic.While the global economy is clouded in uncertainty amid second-wave fears, AstraZeneca is a rare patch of blue sky. However, there’s a price to pay for its success. It now trades at a forward valuation of 27 times earnings, almost double its valuation five years ago.FTSE 100 stock market crash survivorAs the AstraZeneca share price rises, the yield inevitably falls. Right now, it offers a forecast 2.6%, covered 1.4 times. With more than 200 UK companies suspending their dividend payouts during the crisis, this still looks attractive. You can take this tax-free inside your Stocks and Shares ISA allowance.Total revenue guidance for the rest of the 2020 financial year is unchanged, and is expected to increase by a high single-digit to a low double-digit percentage.AstraZeneca’s exciting new pipeline of drugs makes for a strong buy case. As does its defensive capabilities during these uncertain times.This is a premium FTSE 100 stock with a premium valuation. You could wait for it to get cheaper, but you may have to be patient. Buy to hold, and watch your wealth build over time.

Weatherman Michael Fish promotes Remember A Charity week

Weatherman Michael Fish is encouraging people to plan for the unexpected by making sure they have a Will. He is supporting Remember A Charity Week (17-23 September) to urge people to think about leaving a gift in their Will to good causes.His involvement with the campaign marks 25 years since the 1987 storms that caused such havoc in parts of the UK. He is popularly associated with a TV forecast that failed to predict the hurricane, but he disputes that he gave the forecast that night.Fish said: “What I’ve learned from my years of forecasting is that however prepared you are, the weather can still be unpredictable.”“Life’s a bit like that too, that’s why we’re encouraging people to make sure they’ve got their Will sorted.”Fish has been joined by other celebrities including Dame Judi Dench and Jeremy Irons to promote leaving a charitable bequest.There are many charity events throughout the week promoting the campaign, including in over 3,000 charity shops. In addition, throughout the week, those who have written a Will with Co-operative Legal Services will be able to update it with the addition of a charitable gift for free.www.rememberacharity.org.uk  39 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Weatherman Michael Fish promotes Remember A Charity week AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Celebrity legacies About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The new laboratory will house basic science and clinical study facilities for HMRI’s patient-focused research programs.This month, contractors will begin site excavation and preparations for laying the research lab’s foundation, a process that is expected to take approximately one month. The new building’s structural frame, which will be constructed of concrete to reduce vibration and sound emissions that affect electron-microscopes and other sensitive scientific equipment, is expected to be complete by early October. Interior construction and fit-out is slated to begin in December 2016 with a projected move-in date of December 2017.Founded in 1952, HMRI is in the midst of its first major capital campaign, to generate support for this revolutionary building project, which will bring HMRI physician-scientists, scientists from research collaborations and key staff together on one campus.“As a boutique research institute, we have the advantage of putting highly diverse teams together in one new building, facilitating the cross-disciplinary brainstorming that drives our most ambitious programs. This sharing of space will allow us to continue our outsized contribution to research—For our size, we are remarkably productive, but our scientists desperately need a lab that supports their work. We are all anxious to move into this great facility,” said Dr. Marie Csete, President & Chief Scientist of HMRI. “We are optimistic that our capital campaign goal will be met, as more and more of the local community understand the significance of this building to Pasadena and the importance of HMRI’s research generally. HMRI’s mission is changing lives through multidisciplinary, patient-focused research. Our programs are led by physician-scientists who have deep clinical experience and bring that clinical experience into their laboratories.”Dr. Csete is also confident that the new HMRI lab will anchor development of a long-anticipated biomedical research corridor along Fair Oaks Avenue, near the Huntington Memorial Hospital. With other great clinical and research organizations moving to the area around the Hospital, including Doheny Eye Institute and the Shriner’s Hospital, “we have an enormous opportunity to be the intellectual center of a vibrant research corridor through our collaborations with the Hospital, our new neighbors, and selected strategic partners.”For more information about the new laboratory, the research at HMRI, or to make a donation, visit http://forward.hmri.org/.About Huntington Medical Research InstitutesHuntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit, public-benefit organization based in Pasadena, California, dedicated to changing lives through multidisciplinary patient-focused research.

Self-absorbed HR needs to get back to basics

first_img Comments are closed. Personnel professionals would do well to remember their main role, saysMalcolm Finney, or else face being cut out of the equationHR is “the least understood” profession says Pam Calvert (Personnel Today, 4April), and it is this which, she believes, lies at the heart of the sector’sproblem.Not so. The problem with the personnel profession is that its members arefar too concerned with their status or lack of it. Instead what practitioners should be doing is trying to help managers dotheir job better.Whether personnel managers and directors like it or not, their prime role isto support front-line management. Unfortunately, however, they often seethemselves as free-standing from management, with their own agendas. All thisdoes is breed antagonism between the personnel function and general management,making the former’s job impossible.Having their own agenda also leads to the production of informationimportant to the personnel department but of irrelevance to management. Just as management has to meet the needs of its customers, if a company isto survive and prosper, the personnel department should seek to serve itscustomers – that is, the in-house managers. Failure to do so will mean the department will quite simply remain unusedand its staff unwanted.Navel contemplation also often seems high on the personnel agenda. Thecurrent debate in the profession about whether to call itself”personnel” or “HR” is a prime example. All that this typeof debate does is reconfirm that the profession is far too concerned with itsown ego than offering a much needed service. Achieving chartered status, while not unhelpful, will not result inimmediate and automatic equality with their accountancy or legal colleagues.Such equality has to be earned the hard way.And what about the “break away” training group? This group nowseems to want its own separate profession, no longer wanting to be part of theIPD which it seems has “failed” them. Perhaps much can be learned from the insurance industry. Many years ago insurancewas perceived as a “cost” to companies. The in-house insurancemanager and their department were seen as cost centres. Enter the risk manager. Agreed, same person different label. However, muchmore importantly the name change also heralded a new and proactive approach.The result was that insurance came under the control of management, turningwhat had hitherto been perceived as an uncontrollable cost into a directlycontrollable profit opportunity. By delivering to management something that was seen as of direct benefit asignificant improvement in the perception of in-house insurance departments andits people resulted.So where does this leave us? The bottom line is that if personnelpractitioners wish to be given due status and achieve board-levelrepresentation then they must stand in the trenches with management, providingthe constructive support management needs. This requires them to:• Recognise that the in-house personnel department is there to servemanagement. It can do this by simply asking management what it wants. • Become more integrated with management, not more distant and isolated fromit. Walk the floor. Being locked away on a self-contained floor away frominternal customers is hopeless.• Attend departmental meetings of all descriptions even when there appearsto be no personnel input required. This way you will get to know what is reallyhappening at the grass roots. It is important, however, to do this in a waywhich is not perceived as spying. Trust, of course, between parties isparamount.• Try to become a bit more user friendly. A start would be to stop referringto employees as “human capital” or “human resources”. • Abandon the use of voice-mail. Personnel is about people, their needs,wants and aspirations. When a call is made to personnel a human response isrequired.• Reduce the number of internal meetings at which only personnel specialistsattend. Your in-house clients need you.
