Highlighting 3 Shares The Fool Wrote About Last Week: Tesco PLC, Royal Bank Of Scotland Group Plc And Vodafone Group Plc

Here at the Motley Fool, we’re proud of the insights our all-star team of investment writers provide every day for you. We’re all private investors ourselves, each approaching the stock market with our own individual views, eager to explain what we like — and dislike — about potential investment opportunities.

So allow me to highlight three articles from that I’ve found particularly insightful over the past week. If you’ve missed them, I think they’re well worth reading, so don’t miss out!

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 at UK Fool HQ, there are few people with the accounting-savvy of our Financial Controller, Barry James. In this article, Barry digs deep into the balance sheet of Vodafone (LSE: VOD) (NASDAQ: VOD.US). Interestingly, he delves into the notes relating to the telecom giant’s goodwill, highlighting the subjective valuation of some of the company’s intangible assets. When looking at Vodafone, I always think it’s important to note the company’s reported earnings will be affected by amortisation of these intangibles, which Vodafone will necessarily estimate themselves.

Our new Foolish writer Peter Stephens has gotten off to a flying start with some remarkably insightful commentary. In this article, Peter explains why he’s happy to follow investment legend Warren Buffett into Tesco (LSE: TSCO). His faith in the Oracle of Omaha’s investment isn’t blind, however — he rightly points out Tesco’s attractive 4.5% dividend yield and turnaround potential. I think especially important to Tesco are the long-term prospects for its international operations, which are surely the retailer’s most promising source for future growth. I wonder if this is what attracted Mr Buffett?

Meanwhile, our resident corporate finance expert Tony Reading uses a structured, checklist approach to analysing Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE: RBS) (NYSE: RBS.US), and shares his conclusions with fellow Fools. Like Tony, I’m also encouraged by the bank’s latest asset sales, which I agree are crucial to unlocking long-term value for shareholders — and the taxpayer. As RBS transforms itself though, do these speculative factors make it impossible to evaluate long-term shareholder results?
