Growth stocks are down in 2022 for a variety of reasons, from lingering pandemic-related supply chain issues to tough comparisons with a blistering 2021 to a hawkish Federal Reserve raising interest rates to control soaring inflation in order to avoid a recession.

This explains, in part, why the shares of Fortinet (FTNT -0.79%) and Skyworks Solutions (SWKS -0.32%) were beaten in 2022 despite impressive earnings. Fortinet’s stock price is down 30.3% this year and Skyworks shares are down 36%.

While price declines are generally not a good thing for stocks, they open up opportunities for investors looking to buy battered stocks of promising companies at relatively attractive valuations. Let’s look at the reasons why putting $500 into Fortinet and Skyworks might turn out to be a prudent long-term decision.

1.Fortinet

Cybersecurity specialist Fortinet has largely outperformed the broader market over the past decade. The stock has gained more than 800% during this period, easily surpassing the S&P500166% over the same period. So a $500 investment in Fortinet stock ten years ago is worth more than $4,500 now.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see the company repeat this impressive performance over the next decade. Indeed, the size of the market in which Fortinet operates is expected to grow at a faster rate in the future thanks to an increase in cyber threats.

The global cybersecurity market is expected to be worth nearly $501 billion by 2030, growing 12% annually from 2022 through the end of the decade. By comparison, global spending on cybersecurity has grown from $60 billion in 2012 to around $150 billion last year. So, Fortinet’s end-market opportunity could more than triple over the next eight years, which would be a nice step up from the 2.5x growth seen over the past decade.

More importantly, Fortinet is well on its way to taking advantage of this lucrative opportunity. The company is growing at a faster rate than the cybersecurity market, as evidenced by its second quarter 2022 results. Fortinet’s total revenue jumped 29% year-over-year to 1 $.03 billion, while adjusted net income rose to $0.24 per share from $0.19 per share a year ago.

The company’s deferred revenue (money collected in advance for services that will be rendered later and not yet recognized as revenue) has grown at a faster rate than its actual revenue. Fortinet’s deferred revenue grew 35% year-over-year to $2.9 billion. The rapid growth of this metric is an indicator of a strong future revenue pipeline for Fortinet.

Fortinet management expects revenue to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 22% through 2025. Analysts are also optimistic about its outlook, predicting annual earnings growth of 23% for the five coming years. All of this indicates that Fortinet is a cybersecurity stock worth investing $500 in, especially since it currently trades at 40 times forward earnings, a ratio below its average multiple of 47 on five years.

2.Skyworks Solutions

Skyworks Solutions is another battered stock investors may want to buy right now, as it trades at just 12.7 times earnings, a discount to the 22 multiple of S&P 500 earnings. the stock’s forward earnings of 8.6 is also attractive and indicates an improvement in its bottom line.

Buying Skyworks at this valuation seems like a good idea given its catalysts and attractive dividend. It’s worth noting that a $500 investment in Skyworks ten years ago would now be worth nearly $2,000 despite its stock price falling sharply over the past year, assuming dividends were reinvested.

It would not be surprising to see the company deliver healthy growth in the future also thanks to the secular demand for its chips, which are used in multiple applications ranging from smartphones to automotive to data centers and the Internet of Things (IoT). These multiple end markets drove healthy growth for Skyworks in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, which ended July 1, 2022.

The company’s revenue rose 10% year-over-year to $1.23 billion, driven by strong demand for 5G smartphone chips. Additionally, Skyworks is seeing an increase in demand for chips used in electric vehicles and wearable devices. The chipmaker has also won several design contracts from European equipment vendors to power massive MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) 5G deployments.

It should be noted that all of these markets are on track for impressive long-term growth. The demand for 5G chipsets, for example, is expected to increase at an annual rate of almost 27% until 2027. Meanwhile, the automotive chipset market is expected to register an annual growth of 12% over the same period.

So, investors looking to buy a semiconductor stock that could give their long-term portfolios a nice boost may want to take a closer look at Skyworks stock, as it’s trading attractively right now. moment and seems on track to maintain its growth momentum.

Trends in the consumption of psychotropic drugs by French soldiers during the COVID-19 epidemic | BMC Medicine https://atrx.net/trends-in-the-consumption-of-psychotropic-drugs-by-french-soldiers-during-the-covid-19-epidemic-bmc-medicine/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 00:42:19 +0000 https://atrx.net/trends-in-the-consumption-of-psychotropic-drugs-by-french-soldiers-during-the-covid-19-epidemic-bmc-medicine/ Our study reveals significant associations between the evolution of psychotropic drugs dispensed and the COVID-19 pandemic among French military personnel.

Our study reveals significant associations between the evolution of psychotropic drugs dispensed and the COVID-19 pandemic among French military personnel. In this study, which to our knowledge is the first to address the important topic of mental health in the military during the COVID-19 pandemic, we observed both temporary and global effects. The first week of the first lockdown was associated with a rapid increase in psychotropic medications dispensed, followed by a decrease during the rest of the lockdown. However, these effects were temporary and overall trends show an increase in the rate of psychotropic medications dispensed since the start of the pandemic despite the downward trend in 2019. This overall increase suggests that the pandemic and associated containment measures have had a significant negative impact on the mental health of the military, which remains a hypothesis to be confirmed by other studies. Over our study period, the rate ratio (2019 vs 2020-2021) increased by 3% for dispensed anxiolytics, 12% for antidepressants and 13% for hypnotics. These increases are a key observation in our work. One could hypothesize that fewer consultations with health professionals specializing in mental health could partly explain our results. In addition, due to the nature of military activity, most military personnel have jobs that are not compatible with telework (collective sports and combat training in the field, technical activities on site such as equipment maintenance), and some operations were maintained during the lockdown despite the difficult conditions. On the contrary, some soldiers were unable to continue their usual activities, and the face-to-face training necessary for operational preparation was also impacted by the confinements, in particular the first. Overall, however, the closures probably had the biggest effect on free time.

The initial transitory phenomenon observed during the first confinement could correspond to a “replenishment” effect following the government’s announcement of the imminence of confinement. This effect has also been observed in the general population [23], and it may have particularly involved people who were already on treatment. Certain measures have been put in place to avoid a break in the continuity of treatment for patients suffering from chronic diseases and unable to consult as usual during the pandemic. For example, the Ministry of Health quickly authorized the delivery of treatments (in particular antidepressants), from expired prescriptions, which may have affected the behavior of patients. It should be noted that the replenishment phenomenon was not observed during the second confinement, which was not as strict [23]. Therefore, it may be that the sudden introduction of the first lockdown, which was new to most people, and the fear of drug shortages led to the trend seen at the very beginning of the pandemic. The subsequent temporary drop in reimbursement rates for psychotropic drugs during the same initial lockdown may correspond to the use of drugs purchased earlier and limited access to general practitioners or specialists during this period. Although unlikely given the increase in insomnia, depressive symptoms and anxiety over this period in the general population [24]we cannot completely exclude that the decrease in drug distribution may have been the result of a brief decrease in consumption.

Global trends of increasing consumption of psychotropic drugs after the start of the COVID-19 epidemic have been verified in several studies [25]although not all [26]. The EPIPHARE study, a pharmacoepidemiological study conducted by French public institutions and including data on the entire French population since 2018, reported changes in the consumption of drugs in outpatient settings and in particular a significant trend to the decline in the consumption of anxiolytics, hypnotics and antidepressants until 2019, but which was interrupted in 2020 at the start of the pandemic [23]. Although we observed an increase in the use of antidepressants among the military, who are generally healthy young adults, the generalization of these results must be considered with caution. For example, in the general population, a temporary decrease in the reimbursement of antidepressants was also observed at the start of the pandemic, but this was followed by a rapid return to pre-crisis levels in August 2020 [27]. Therefore, the general population did not have the same increase in dispensed antidepressants that we observed among the military population. Other recent work by our team has underscored the challenge of drawing firm conclusions about the overall effects of the outbreak. For example, our analysis of suicide attempts in the general population in France indicated that there was a decrease in hospitalizations for self-harm both during the first lockdown [28] and during the second phase of the COVID-19 pandemic [29], except in adolescent girls. It is therefore essential to take into account the specificities of the study population, and healthy young individuals from the general active population must be studied specifically before extrapolating our results.

It has been shown that the COVID-19 epidemic has directly or indirectly affected the mental health of various populations through different mechanisms, including increased stress at the family, professional or financial level, fear of contamination or the effects of social isolation. [30, 31]. In addition, mental health disorders due to the COVID-19 epidemic are risk factors for suicidal ideation or self-harm [32]. It can therefore be expected that the epidemic will result in longer-term effects on the consumption of health care for this selected population. Any interpretation of these effects must be made in the light of all the health measures that have been put in place in the army and in the general population to curb the epidemic. In addition, the side effects of antipsychotics are not to be overlooked. It is questionable whether even a small increase in the long-term consumption of these drugs could have long-term consequences (ischemic heart disease or acute stroke) [33, 34]. This obviously remains a hypothesis that will have to be the subject of more in-depth studies.

Further studies are needed to help differentiate the effects of the factors involved, such as the epidemic itself, but also government measures (lockdowns and deprivation measures), taking into account professional characteristics and individual vulnerabilities as well as different factors. other potential confounding factors. Additionally, further studies should consider occupational characteristics and individual vulnerabilities as well as other potential confounders that could not be accounted for in this study. Specific mental preparation has been shown to help medical professionals experience fewer mental health effects due to the pandemic. It is likely that a method of this type could also be successfully applied to military personnel. [35].

This study is based on comprehensive national healthcare reimbursement data from the SNDS. It was thus possible to precisely describe the evolution of healthcare consumption by active military personnel in the civilian healthcare system thanks to the comprehensiveness of the database (no sample data).

Nevertheless, we recognize that there are limitations to this work. First of all, although all drugs dispensed by pharmacies are taken into account because they are systematically collected, we did not have access to data on drug consumption during hospital stays in the SNDS database. The SNDS database does not allow the identification of military personnel in operation or the various armed forces (army, air force, navy, etc.) and the outpatient reimbursement base includes limited clinical data or data relating to the mode of life. However, the SNDS database includes information on some comorbidities through input from other databases, including the Long-Term Illness Database, the Hospital Information Database (PMSI), and the drug dispensing database. Military personnel are subject to strict medical screening and monitoring. They are therefore rarely affected by the chronic comorbidities of the ALD database because these are most often incompatible with the performance of their duties. Moreover, although the database specifies the delivery of the drugs, the actual consumption and therefore compliance cannot be assessed, even though these are important factors for the study of psychiatric conditions. Due to their specific healthcare system, French soldiers have access to a separate chain of care since their outpatient medical care can be provided within their unit of origin. Finally, from a statistical point of view, we used age groups in our analyses, which is common practice, but we did not study within each group.

The quest for more sustainable business models is stronger than ever, and in recent years it has also become increasingly present in the telecommunications industry, and for good reason.

How can network equipment manufacturers help reduce carbon emissions in product production and use cycles, and how can they, at the same time, help their customers reduce emissions while providing Services ?

Take Ericsson as an example. Our biggest impact is known to be the energy consumed by products in the use phase. However, making more energy-efficient products is not enough. A significant portion of our carbon footprint comes from the supply chain, including the entire value chain from raw material extraction to customer sites. To achieve our ambition of zero carbon in our value chain by 2040, we must also reduce carbon emissions in the supply chain and enable circularity through reuse and recycling.

This is where the concept of circular economy comes into play.

The circular economy is seen as one of the keys to minimizing resource inputs and reducing waste and carbon emissions. It aims to maximize the efficiency of the use of finite resources and the transition to renewable resources. In addition, it emphasizes the recovery of materials and products at the end of their useful life. How?

We have the answer.

Don’t produce when you can reuse!

At Ericsson, we have a comprehensive portfolio of product reuse services for the refurbishment, reuse and recycling of telecommunications network equipment. Additionally, in 2021 Ericsson introduced its latest offering, refurbished network equipment, as a contribution to a more sustainable future and a great example of how we can enable circularity without compromise.

Through the process of buying back products from customers for refurbishment and reuse, we limit the extraction of new materials while extending the useful life of products. And to be sure to reduce environmental impact with a holistic life cycle perspective, Ericsson Product Reuse only offers roofing products that already have good energy performance. Compared to manufacturing a new equivalent, remanufacturing the product reduces supply chain carbon emissions by more than 90%.

We’re talking about making a change for real!

Why is it important to select a reliable supplier of reused network equipment?

Concerns about network equipment, especially refurbished ones, can be heard about their reliability in terms of security, quality and efficiency. This is why it is so important to choose trusted suppliers.

Ericsson Refurbished Network Equipment supports the full cycle, from support of a product to the time it is delivered to a customer, tested, upgraded with the latest revisions and full quality assurance, as well as delivered safely in its original packaging.

At Ericsson, we always ensure compliance with all legal requirements for data privacy and information security. We have strict procedures for storing and transporting equipment and only work with partners and suppliers who can meet all security requirements in our supply chain.

Any security problem in the network is considered as a threat to the overall security level of the network. That’s why data security and physical supply chain security are a crucial part of all testing, selection and repair activities for all Ericsson equipment, including refurbished equipment.

So our customers can be assured that Ericsson reconditioned equipment is completely reliable, without compromise!

Product reuse – a path to a more sustainable future

The technology industry (and telecommunications as an integral part of it) is the fastest growing market, with innovations and improvements in products and solutions occurring daily. Most of us are forced to think and act – when a new product comes out, you replace the old one (even if it’s not really “old”).

At Ericsson, we anticipate and always strive to improve our portfolio. A good example is the Ericsson radio system from 2015, with features already included to allow upgrading to 5G added to avoid early replacements. However, early replacements sometimes happen in our industry because customers always want to replace an earlier product with a newer model due to improved features.

Such a practice tells us that we need to be stronger in explaining the value of a sustainable approach in telecommunications. Because, as more and more research and studies show, if we want to achieve global sustainability, we must move from a linear economy model to a circular economy model. Product, reuse presents itself as an excellent solution, without an alternative, in fact.

Learn more about our work for sustainability and/or contact us if you’d like to learn more about refurbished network equipment and other product reuse offerings.

The workhorse of the Toyota family, the RAV4 SUV, has always had a lot going for it: affordability, space, practical features and economical operation. What it lacked was straight-line acceleration, smooth handling and interior refinement. With the introduction of the 2022 RAV4 Prime XSE – a plug-in hybrid featuring an all-new powertrain – the RAV4 has finally become an SUV fast enough to be fun to drive.

Until the advent of the Prime model, you could buy either a 203-hp gasoline RAV4 or a 219-hp hybrid version. But now you can opt for an almost 100 extra horsepower boost with the plug-in rechargeable Prime model that boosts power to a scintillating 302 hp. The base gas-only 3,510lb RAV4 makes do with a power-to-weight ratio of 17.29lb/hp, while the Hybrid improves that number slightly to 16.02lb/hp. The much heavier 4,235 lb Prime kicks the RAV4 into another league with a 14.02 lb/hp rating. Best of all is the immediate torque boost from the front and rear axle electric motors that complement the 165 lb-ft of the 177-hp gasoline engine. of torque. The front electric unit develops 179 hp and 199 lb-ft. of torque, while the rear axle unit increases power with 53 hp and 89 lb-ft. of torque. What all of this means in daily driving is that the RAV4 Prime is a true hot rod, boasting a 0-60mph acceleration time of 5.5 seconds and conquering the quarter-mile from a standing start in 14 .0 seconds at 100 mph.

However, the RAV4’s affordability suffers from the Prime XSE’s high base price of $43,125. Our Blueprint Metallic tester upped the ante with $6,391 in extras. The most expensive of these were the $1,650 Premium Audio/Navigation (with 11 JBL speakers, subwoofer and amplifier); and the $3,350 Premium Package (tilt/slide panoramic glass roof, SofTex-trimmed seats with red accents and stitching, bird’s-eye camera, kick-activated tailgate).

In addition to the Prime’s performance improvements, another key incentive to spend the extra money on the plug-in version is the operating economy. EPA/DOT fuel economy figures for the Prime are 38MPG in combined gas/electric mode and 94MPGe in electric-only use. The government estimates the range on a full charge will be 42 miles before the petrol engine needs to start. We took Marin’s Prime to “Car Week” in Monterey. A tank of fuel was enough for this round trip plus several jaunts to Laguna Seca Raceway. The Prime scores 10/10 on the EPA’s fuel economy scale, 7/10 on the smog rating scale, and will save you $2,750 in fuel costs over 5 years. On top of that, the Prime can also make you eligible for a $7,500 electric vehicle tax credit that applies to taxes due in the year of purchase.

Thanks to the Premium package, the dashboard of our test RAV4 featured a 10-inch touchscreen for navigation and infotainment tasks. The small RAV4s are content with 8 and 9 inch screens. The striking red seat accents and stitching continue across the face of the dash as well as the door panels. These refinements propel this Toyota’s interior a class above the more prosaic RAV4s. Both front seats are ventilated and heated. The driver’s seat has an 8-position power adjustment and a 2-position memory function. The interior is spacious and well stocked with storage compartments, a smartphone charger and a 120 volt, 1500 watt AC outlet in the cargo area. We particularly applaud Toyota’s continued efforts to install large rubberized buttons to control all essential functions while driving. This attention to detail even extends to the invisible grippy interior of the door handles. Space is the watchword here. With the second-row seats up, interior storage space measures 33 cubic feet. If you flatten the rear seats, interior cargo space increases to 63 cubic feet.

Not only is the Prime quick in a straight line, but it’s also incredibly competent when it comes to dealing with twisty roads. Beautifully detailed 19-inch chrome-spoke alloy wheels support Yokohama Avid GT radial tires (235/55R19). These tires complement Toyota’s compliant ride, but stick surprisingly well when you select the Sport setting from the drive mode indicator. Sport mode outlines the tachometer and speedometer faces in red, enhances ride quality and improves engine responsiveness by moving the Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) into a lower operating range.

The most surprising and rewarding factor in the Prime equation is how responsive the transmission is to throttle input. By supplementing the 2.5-litre inline-4 petrol engine with not 1 but 2 electric motors, Toyota has converted the previously sleepy RAV4 hybrid into a surprisingly economical road scorcher.

TOYOTA RAV4 PRIME AWD 2022

    Engine: DOHC 16-valve 2.5-litre inline-4 plus electric motors on front and rear axles
    POWER: 302 hp (combined)
    TORQUE: N/A

    TESTED PRICE: $50,731

HYPES: Surprisingly fast and fun-to-drive hybrid SUV

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is a premium smartwatch with nifty features that make it easy to keep up with your fitness routines. While it tracks common metrics like heart rate, steps, sleep patterns, and other metrics, it’s the first Samsung wearable device that can also measure body composition.

Let’s see how the feature works and how you can use it to track your weight loss and fitness goals.


Why should you measure body composition?

Body fat is one of the main factors in the development of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. According to this article from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the ideal body composition for men and women varies with age. This makes ongoing body composition analysis a valuable tool for planning healthier lifestyles.

So what exactly is body composition?

Your body composition is the ratio of fat mass to muscle (or skeletal) mass. The Galaxy Watch 4 offers real-time body composition measurements using advanced Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), a medical technique for measuring the electrical conductivity of living tissue.


Once set up, the smartwatch sends low-frequency electrical currents to your body through your wrist and measures resistance through fatty and hydrated muscle tissue. Signals encounter resistance as they pass through fatty tissue. It then determines the fat and water levels in your body by comparing the data points to over 2,400 values ​​from an extensive health database.

To get the most accurate reading on your Galaxy Watch, you’ll need to manually enter your age, height, weight, and gender. You can also keep a note of these guidelines from Samsung to get the most out of this feature.

Body composition measures, such as visceral fat, body mass index, and skeletal muscle mass, correlate with physiological function. This can help to better understand the potential risks associated with your lifestyle, genetic predisposition or other conditions. For athletes, it is especially useful to analyze and plan how much nutrition and exercise they should consume.

According to the National Strength and Conditioning Association, body composition is one of the most important measures for the overall fitness of athletes. For example, people with large muscle mass are likely to be better at basketball and swimming than at soccer and cycling. However, you should not use the tool if you are pregnant or have medical devices implanted in your body, such as a pacemaker.

Get started with body composition measurements on the Galaxy Watch 4

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 makes it easy to track your fitness goals. You can set personal goals and get tips and suggestions on what you can do to improve your health, as well as see how you’re progressing towards your goals.

To get started, download and install the Samsung Health app on your smartwatch. Next, you’ll need to set up your health profile to receive personalized health suggestions, track your daily exercise habits, and set nutrition and fitness goals.

  4. Note that you will also need to enter your height and gender in the Profile section (if you haven’t already) when setting up your body composition goals.
  5. If your entries conflict with the recommended targets, you can adjust them accordingly, based on the suggested ranges.

To configure notifications, scroll down and toggle the slider button to Receive reminder notifications. Choose how often you want to receive a notification reminding you to measure your body composition (once a day, every other day of the week or more frequently) as well as the time of day you want to be notified.

Measure body composition on your smartwatch

Although BMI tests have traditionally been used to measure your weight to indicate the presence of body fat, they are not as accurate as the BIA technology used in smart scales and high-end wearables such as the Galaxy Watch. 4. To get accurate body composition readings on your smartwatch, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. First, make sure you’re wearing your watch.
  2. Next, on your watch face, swipe left to access your Wear OS tiles until you come across the body composition section.
  3. Faucet Measureand select your gender.
  4. Enter your height and weight and press To confirm. You might consider using a regular or smart scale to accurately measure your weight.

  6. Now touch the House and Return touches with your fingers with the palm up. Your hands should not be in contact.

  7. Raise both arms to chest level and away from your body. Stay still while the watch takes your readings.
  8. After about 15-20 seconds, you will be able to see the results of your body composition readings as a quick summary.
  9. To get a better idea of ​​your measurements, you can also visit the Body Composition section of the Samsung Health app.


The measure can be useful for everyone, especially those at risk for diabetes or heart disease, as they have less muscle mass and are therefore more likely to develop these conditions. Knowing your body composition can help you determine if your physical performance is impaired or if you have gained too much weight.

Take a closer look at body composition assessments
