He is generally regarded as one of the UK’s top stock pickers. Indeed, his performance track record is so impressive that ‘Britain’s Warren Buffett’ seems like a fair description.This year, Train has been buying a number of stocks for his portfolios amid the coronavirus-related market volatility. If you’ve some money to invest right now, I think it could be worth looking at what the portfolio manager has been buying.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…Train loves this Warren Buffett-type stockOne of the first stocks Train bought when stocks began to wobble earlier in the year was alcoholic beverages champion Diageo (LSE: DGE). This is a FTSE 100 firm Train is a big fan of. Today, it’s the second-largest holding in his Global Equity fund, and the fifth-largest holding in his UK Equity fund, according to data from Hargreaves Lansdown.It’s not hard to see why Train likes Diageo (and why Warren Buffett himself might like it if he bought UK stocks). Put simply, it’s a classic Buffett-type stock. Not only does it have a strong competitive advantage due to the power of its brands (Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Tanqueray, etc) but it’s also highly profitable. In addition, it’s a reliable dividend payer with a superb long-term track record of generating shareholder wealth.Diageo shares have actually continued to fall since Train was buying earlier in the year. This means you can pick the shares up at a lower price than he paid. Personally, at the current valuation (trailing P/E ratio of 21), I think Diageo shares look attractive right now. Covid-19 is certainly going to set the company back in the short term, however, the long-term growth story associated with emerging markets growth remains intact.FTSE 100 profits powerhouseMore recently, Train has been buying shares in financial services company Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE: HL). Late last month, Lindsell Train Limited increased its ownership of the FTSE 100 stock from 12% to 13%. That means ‘Britain’s Warren Buffett’ spent somewhere around £70m on Hargreaves Lansdown shares. Clearly, he’s confident in the outlook.I can see why Train likes Hargreaves Lansdown. Like Diageo, it’s very much a Buffett-type stock. For a start, the company is one of the most profitable in the entire FTSE 100 index. Last year, return on capital employed (ROCE) – a key measure of profitability – came in at 69%. By contrast, the five largest non-bank companies in the FTSE 100, AstraZeneca, Unilever, Shell, GlaxoSmithKline, and British American Tobacco, averaged a ROCE of 11%.Secondly, it’s the leader in the investment management platform industry with a market share of around 40%. This provides a competitive advantage.Third, the long-term growth story here looks attractive. We all need to save and invest more for retirement and Hargreaves should benefit from this. On top of this, rising stock markets should boost assets under administration in the long run.Hargreaves Lansdown shares are currently down about 25% this year. At today’s prices, the trailing P/E ratio is about 28. At that valuation, I see the stock as a ‘buy’.

Stratford School educators will discuss these concepts and provide how-to take-aways for educators at the annual Early Childhood Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (ECSTEM) Conference February 3-4 in Pasadena.Stratford educators will present at two sessions during the two-day conference. A presentation entitled “Art, Snack, Nap, then Coding,” will address the school’s balanced approach to teaching coding to preschool and kindergarten age students using play-based, plugged and unplugged activities. Presenters are Stratford School educators Allison Wilson, curriculum and training implementation specialist; and Vidya Janardhanan, computer science teacher. Candice Schreuders, senior director of operations for Stratford School in Southern California will speak on the topic of “Coding Made Simple” where she’ll discuss connecting education standards by teaching pre-coding skills to the school’s youngest learners. Stratford School, based in Saratoga, Calif., with 23 campuses in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and Orange County, pioneered an early learning STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) curriculum, which incorporates visual arts, language, music, and performing arts with science, technology, engineering, and math. Studies show that early learners excel at these skills when provided the opportunity and guidance to learn them. To do that, educators need resources and training to address these needs. In a newly released report called STEM Start Early conducted by The Joan Ganz CooneyCenter, early age STEAM programs work when they engage parents, support teachers, and connect learning. The study recommends transforming early childhood education and reprioritizing research on the subject in order to succeed. Key to success is using insights from communications science to build goodwill and understanding for early STEM learning.The ECSTEM Conference welcomes more than 700 educators from across the United States. It is presented by The Children’s Center at Caltech. Organizers state that meeting the needs of an economically, ethnically, and socially diverse student population – especially for the youngest of learners – is challenging. To prepare today’s children for the challenges of tomorrow, it is increasingly important that they have developmentally appropriate curriculum, inclusive and culturally sensitive approaches in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).About Stratford School: Established in 1999, Stratford School is a leading independent private school founded on the belief that education is a significant influence in the life of a child. Stratford offers an accelerated curriculum from preschool through eighth grade with an emphasis in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) that incorporates music, physical education, foreign language, and social skills development. Stratford’s goal is to prepare and mentor students for admission to competitive high schools and colleges. All students are provided the necessary tools to excel, and are encouraged to participate actively in leadership, community service, and extracurricular activities.
