Ashtead Group (LSE: AHT) has jumped more than 8% today as the FTSE 100 dividend stock continues its impressive recovery following the stock market crash. It’s just posted a solid set of fourth-quarter results, and defied the Covid-19 pandemic to maintain its shareholder payout. This gives investors good cause for celebration.But loyal investors have been celebrating for years. The Ashtead share price was the second-best FTSE 100 performer during the decade to December 2019, with a total return of more than 3,000%. I wrote then that it looked like a buy to me. Despite the pandemic, it looks like a buy today as well.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…Although Ashtead is listed on the FTSE 100, this dividend stock generates 90% of its earnings from the US, through its Sunbelt subsidiary. The group rents out general construction equipment, industrial tools, pumps, power generation, scaffolding, and restoration equipment. It’s benefited from the US boom, but punished by the Covid-19 bust.Well-equipped for growthThe Ashtead share price fell more than 40% in March, but has since recovered almost all of its losses. The FTSE 100 dividend stock is renowned for steadily increasing payouts year after year. That run of growth now extends for 15 years, surviving both the financial crisis and the current pandemic.Naturally, the lockdown hit demand for tool hiring. But today, management could still highlight a “resilient performance,” with full-year rental revenue up 8%, and operating profit up 0.9% to £1.2bn. Ashtead also posted record full-year free cash flow of £792m, more than doubling last year’s figure.Chief executive Brendan Horgan is looking forward to a year of “strong cash generation and strengthening our market position.” This persuaded the board to maintain its progressive dividend policy and to recommend a final dividend of 33.5p. It also confirms Ashtead’s position as a top FTSE 100 dividend stock. Sensibly, it will pause acquisitions and share buy-backs for now.I’d buy this FTSE 100 dividend stockThe Ashtead share price may get a further boost from reports that President Donald Trump is planning a $1trn US infrastructure plan, which will inevitably boost demand for its tools.I’m so impressed Ashtead has been able to get through the crisis without making anyone redundant or using Government-backed job retention schemes, either in the UK or Canada. Q4 pre-tax profit inevitably plunged, by 52% to £98m, the first drop since 2011. Just imagine how impressive full-year profits might have been otherwise.What Ashtead needs now is for the US economy to start flying again. That may happen as monetary and fiscal stimulus hits the market. So long as we don’t get a second wave of coronavirus.This top FTSE 100 dividend stock has shown it has the strength to withstand a recession, and the muscle to power ahead in a bull run. Ashtead looks like a stock for all market conditions. 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.

That would probably be even better. It’s definitely a great accomplishment, especially the first one of the season.”Through his first 20 games, Kuzma averaged 16.7 points and 6.1 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field. Ben Simmons, the first overall pick in the 2016 draft who missed all of last season with an injury, was the Eastern Conference honoree.Kuzma missed Wednesday’s loss to Golden State because of back spasms. He was expected to be limited in Friday’s practice but as the session wore on he felt good enough to keep going.“I kept saying I was fine, trying more things,” Kuzma said. “I really wanted to play.” After flying to Denver with the Lakers on Friday, Kuzma will be reassessed prior to Saturday’s game against the Nuggets. If his back stiffens, Walton said, the Lakers will rest him to prepare for Sunday’s home game against Houston.His official status for Saturday night is “questionable.”Kuzma has been a lightning bolt for the rebuilding Lakers, emerging as their most NBA-ready rookie while point guard Lonzo Ball, the No. 2 overall pick, has experienced more significant up and downs.Ball was among the players nominated for the November honor after averaging 9 points, 7 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game.While Kuzma, the 27th pick, said he did not plan on making too big of a deal about winning a league-wide award before Ball, his best friend on the team, he dropped in, “I probably will say it.” EL SEGUNDO — Kyle Kuzma found himself locked in a shooting competition on Friday with an unexpected challenger.Assistant coach Miles Simon, his usual counterpart in the regular competition alongside Lonzo Ball, was working on another basket with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. So Luke Walton stepped in to team with assistant coach Brian Shaw for a game of “around the world.”“We won,” Walton said. “I don’t know if that’s good or bad.”If there was a day Kuzma could withstand some light teasing, it was Friday. Following practice, he was informed that he had been named the Western Conference Rookie of the Month for his performance throughout November, just the second Lakers rookie to win the award since its inception in 1981-82.

Brazil’s star striker Neymar said his country’s ouster from the FIFA World Cup 2018 was the “saddest moment” of his career.The 5-time champions Brazil suffered a 2-1 defeat against Belgium in the quarter-finals in Kazan to get knocked out of the World Cup.Neymar said he will find it hard to return to club football.The Paris St Germain player came to Russia as one of the potential leading lights but he did not live up to his own high standards and left saying the quarter-final defeat was the low point of his footballing life.”I can tell you this is the saddest moment of my career, the pain is huge because we know that we could have gone far, we knew that we had what it takes to go further, to make history… but it wasn’t to be this time,” Neymar said on Instagram.”It is hard to find the strength to want to return to play football again but I am sure that God will give me strength to face whatever is in front of me,” he added.”Very happy to be part of this team, I am proud of everyone, they interrupted our dream but they did not remove it from our head nor from our hearts.”2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGEBrazil were knocked out in an enthralling end-to-end encounter in Kazan on Friday that ended their chances of winning the World Cup for a record sixth time.Neymar will arrive back in Brazil on Sunday morning for a holiday before returning to Paris for the French league season.A Fernandinho own goal and a brilliant Kevin De Bruyne strike earned Belgium a date with neighbours France in St Petersburg on Tuesday, their second trip to the last four at a World Cup after 1986.Also read – Dejected Brazil coach Tite finds World Cup 2018 exit ‘very hard to accept’Brazil departed at the last-eight stage for the third time in the last four World Cups despite the best efforts of talismanic forward Neymar, who followed Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo out of the tournament.Brazil left everything on the pitch as they chased an equaliser in the last 14 minutes of the match in the wake of substitute Renato Augusto’s fine headed goal.Roared on by the vast majority of the crowd at the Kazan Arena, the Brazilians poured forward to try and keep their campaign alive but Roberto Firmino, Augusto and Coutinho could not convert gilt-edged opportunities to level the scores.Also read – World Cup 2018: Ronaldo feels ‘Tite should stay’ even after Brazil’s exitNeymar ran at the Belgium defence until the end but had a second penalty appeal waved away by Serbian referee Milorad Mazic and a final shot tipped over the bar by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois as the last few seconds ticked away.It is Belgium’s latest “golden generation”, therefore, who will take their place in a World Cup semi-final lineup guaranteed to be all-European and for the first time not featuring one of Brazil, Argentina or Germany.(With inputs from Reuters)
