Aston Martin share price soars on rescue deal. Here’s what I’d do now

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Aston Martin share price soars on rescue deal. Here’s what I’d do now Sir Richard Branson once said the quickest way to a million is to start with a billion and launch an airline. Perhaps the same could be said about a luxury car maker.RescueBillionaire Formula 1 owner Lawrence Stroll will presumably be hoping not, after stepping in to save the ailing Aston Martin Lagonda (LSE: AML). A consortium led by Stroll is to invest £182m in the firm, and the F1 team he co-owns, Racing Point Formula 1, will be renamed Aston Martin in 2021. If the car maker lasts that long, presumably.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…Further shares will be offered to existing shareholders, to create a full rescue package to the tune of £500m.Stroll and his consortium will own 20% of the company. And as a result of the cash injection, he will take over as executive chair. Current chair Penny Hughes will step down. I’m not a shareholder, but I don’t think I’d be too happy with that arrangement myself.I’ve nothing against Lawrence Stroll and see no reason why he shouldn’t be a first class company leader, but I don’t like combining the chair with a top executive position.Special situationThe board does recognise that as a problem, saying that “in this special situation, it will continue not to be fully compliant with the UK Corporate Governance Code with respect to board composition.” The firm will consider the board composition over time.I’ve read through the list of key priorities for Aston Martin’s turnaround plans. And without wanting to sound too cynical, they appear to boil down to: sell more cars, get more cash in, spend less. Who’d have thought?Specifically, the company is pinning its hopes on the coming launch of the DBX in the second quarter, the relaunch of the Vantage, and the start of Valkyrie deliveries.I’m pleased that Aston Martin will be saved (for now, at least), that a famed British marque will survive, and that jobs will be preserved and all that. But Aston Martin has been a disaster for investors.Worth buying?At least the market seems upbeat now, with the shares leaping almost 30% in Friday morning trading. What’s my strategy now? Well, I’m turning again to perhaps the most important tool in an investor’s workshop, my trusty bargepole.When Aston Martin floated in October 2018, I saw it as a disaster waiting to happen. The history of luxury car development is strewn with failures. And Aston Martin itself had previously gone bust seven times in its century-long history.Couple that with the risks of buying at IPO, and there was no way I’d have gone near the shares. And I still won’t.Bad startsI can point to a long line of IPOs, most of which turned out to be bad investments. I want to buy shares when the free market has had the chance to weigh up a company’s prospects and set the share price accordingly.It might sound like I’m talking from hindsight, so I’ll offer my opinion now on the next IPOs to hit the London market. I’ve no idea who or what they’ll be, but in my view the majority of them will be bad investments.Meanwhile, Aston Martin shares are still down 75% since IPO.

Don’t lose your Stocks & Shares ISA allowance in the stock market crash!

first_imgDon’t lose your Stocks & Shares ISA allowance in the stock market crash! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. There’s a lot going on right now, as the coronavirus threatens businesses and incomes, and investors panic in the stock market crash. The danger is, amid all the confusion, many people will overlook their annual Stocks and Shares ISA and lose it for good.Time is short. The deadline for using your £20,000 ISA allowance is looming fast, at midnight on 5 April. Every year, thousands leave it until the last minute. But I wouldn’t recommend doing that this time round.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…The ISA deadline falls on a Sunday this year, which always muddies things. That’s because many wealth platforms are already warning phone lines are blocked as the stock market crash triggers a rush of buyers and sellers. Leave it too late and there’s a danger you’ll fluff it, losing your Stocks and Shares ISA allowance by default.Don’t squander your Stocks and Shares ISASome may even be thinking about giving it a miss this year. Who wants to invest in the middle of a stock market crash anyway? Here at the Fool, we politely reject that line of thinking. We believe a crash is actually the best time to buy shares, rather than the worst.Shopping for shares in a bear market like this one is a bit like hitting the sales. Almost everything is cheaper than before and shoppers can take their pick. There are bargains everywhere you look.As with every sale, you should look to buy stocks you really want rather than grabbing anything that looks cheap right now. That means high-quality businesses with loyal customers, strong cash flows, low debt, sustainable dividends, and solid balance sheets.Stock market crash opportunityIf you can slip a spread of FTSE 100 blue-chips into your Stocks and Shares ISA before the deadline, you’ll be perfectly placed for the recovery when it comes. Treat anything you buy as a long-term investment rather than a short-term trade. Aim to buy companies you would be happy to hold forever. That’s investment legend Warren Buffett’s favourite holding period or, failing that, at least five or 10 years.The ISA allowance is a hugely generous £20,000. Obviously, most people can’t afford to invest that much each year (including me). You should try to invest the maximum you can afford, even if that’s just £1k or £2k, to build wealth for your future.Some will be reluctant to pay in a large single lump sum right now, because there’s always the danger that the stock market crash could have further to run. If you’re in that position, you should still secure your Stocks and Shares ISA allowance by the deadline, transferring the funds onto your chosen platform via debit card. You can then drip-feed money into the market afterwards, little by little, taking advantage of any dips to pick up more cheap shares.Don’t hang around though.
