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. See all posts by Royston Wild Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” UK share prices soared in value in the decade following the 2008–09 banking crisis. The FTSE 100 more than doubled in value nine years after that stock market crash. The FTSE 250 more than trebled. A vast number of penny stocks soared in price during the bull market too, and a lot of British stock investors made a fortune in the process.It’s possible that the economic recovery could be bumpy as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. So share investors need to continue doing proper research during this rocky period. But I believe the prices of UK shares — which have largely remained flat since last spring — will eventually recover strongly from the 2020 stock market crash. History shows us that stock markets have always bounce to new highs following social, economic, and political crises.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…Here are four of the best penny stocks — that is companies whose shares cost less than £1 each — that I’d buy for the new bull market.#1: A top penny stock for the ad market reboundThe budgets that businesses allocate for advertising and marketing usually pick up fast when economic conditions improve. And this plays into the hands of media companies as their ad revenues pick up strongly. This is why I think events and marketing specialist Centaur Media could be one of the best shares to buy for the new bull market. Indeed, latest financials showed that trading has continued to improve in recent months.Beware, though, that the growing trend of businesses bringing their marketing activities in-house could pose long-term problems for this UK share. Centaur Media’s shares trade at 37p apiece.#2: Life jacketCuriously, demand for life insurance and assurance products isn’t as resilient as people’s commitment to buying general insurance is when times are tough. This was shown in Hansard Global’s latest financials which revealed new business premiums fall nearly 5% in the six months to December.But as consumer confidence picks up during the economic rebound so does spending on these financial products. This likely bodes well for this penny stock’s share price over the next 12 months. Remember, though, that the rapidly-evolving regulatory landscape across the globe could harm profits later down the line. Hansard Global’s shares sell for 50p a pop.#3: Profits set to race aheadI also think Surface Transforms is a great penny stock to buy for the new bull market. This UK share manufactures ceramic brake discs that are used by mainstream automotive OEMs and smaller specialist carbuilders. Spending on cars by individuals and businesses usually picks up swiftly when broader economic conditions improve. So I reckon this engineer should see profits pick up strongly in the next couple of years. Beware, though, that severe exchange rate fluctuations is a not-significant risk to Surface Transforms’s profits. The auto parts giant trades at 70p per share.

The first low‐temperature thermochronological data from Thurston Island, West Antarctica, provide insights into the poorly constrained thermo‐tectonic evolution of the paleo‐Pacific margin of Gondwana since the Late Paleozoic. Here we present the first apatite fission track (AFT) and apatite (U‐Th‐Sm)/He (AHe) data from Carboniferous to mid‐Cretaceous (meta‐) igneous rocks from the Thurston Island area. Thermal history modeling of AFT dates of 145–92 Ma and AHe dates of 112–71 Ma, in combination with kinematic indicators, geological information and thermobarometrical measurements, indicate a complex thermal history with at least six episodes of cooling and reheating. Thermal history models are interpreted to reflect Late Paleozoic to Early Mesozoic tectonic uplift of pre‐Jurassic arc sequences, prior to the formation of an extensional Jurassic–Early Cretaceous back‐arc basin up to 4.5 km deep, which was deepened during intrusion and rapid exhumation of rocks of the Late Jurassic granite suite. Overall Early to mid‐Cretaceous exhumation and basin inversion coincided with an episode of intensive magmatism and crustal thickening and was followed by exhumation during formation of the Zealandia‐West Antarctica rift and continental break‐up. Final exhumation since the Oligocene was likely triggered by activity of the West Antarctic rift system and by glacial erosion.
