Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 3 UK growth stocks I’d invest £1,000 in right now Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 3rd August, 2020 | More on: AFX DOTD KWS There’s an enormous amount of economic uncertainty right now. As a result of the coronavirus, the US economy just had its worst quarter since World War II, with GDP down 32.%. Here in the UK, the economy had its sharpest contraction since 1979 in Q1.Yet despite all this uncertainty, many stocks are moving higher. That’s because they still have strong growth prospects, regardless of wider economic problems. 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 I’ll highlight three UK growth stocks that I believe have substantial potential. If you have £1,000 to invest right now, I think these stocks are worth a look.A founder-led companyOne UK growth stock I like a lot is Alpha FX (LSE: AFX). It’s a fast-growing, founder-led, financial company that offers foreign exchange (FX) hedging services to businesses. The company has a distinguished client base that includes the likes of ASOS and Halfords.Alpha’s growth in recent years has been impressive. Over the last three years, revenue has climbed from £8.5m to £35.4m. Meanwhile, earnings per share over this period have surged from 13.4p to 30.1p.Looking ahead, I expect the company to continue growing. Just recently, AFX advised that it remains profitable, well capitalised, and debt-free. It also said that it remains confident in its ability to generate long-term profitable growth.AFX shares pulled back earlier in the year, but they’re now on the rise again. I’d buy today while the valuation (FY21 P/E ratio of 25) is attractive.A top UK growth stockAnother UK growth stock that I believe has considerable potential is dotDigital (LSE: DOTD). It’s a fast-growing tech company that offers an artificial intelligence-based digital marketing platform.DotDigital recently issued a very encouraging year-end trading update. For the 2019/20 financial year, revenue was up 12% to £47.4m, with Covid-19 having minimal impact in the final quarter. Meanwhile, the company said that adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is expected to be “comfortably ahead” of market expectations.What’s even more impressive, however, is that the company said it would pay a final dividend for the year. When you consider that over 40 companies in the FTSE 100 have scrapped their dividends this year, that’s a top achievement.DOTD shares have been stuck in a trading range for over two years now. However, it looks like a breakout is on the horizon. I’d buy the stock today. The forward-looking P/E ratio is about 31. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Booming industryFinally, I also like Keywords Studios (LSE: KWS). It’s an under-the-radar company that provides technical support to video game companies. Its customers include some of the biggest names in gaming, including Activision Blizzard (Call of Duty) and Epic Games (Fortnite).The reason I like this growth stock is that video gaming is booming right now. Believe it or not, the gaming industry is now larger than the movie and music industries combined. Looking ahead, the industry looks set to continue advancing due to new technologies and the growth of ‘esports’. Keywords, as a services provider to major game developers, looks well placed to capitalise on industry growth.KWS has had a good run recently after full-year results showed revenue growth of 30%. Yet I think the stock has the potential to climb higher in the years ahead as the gaming industry grows. I’d buy this UK growth stock today despite the fact it’s a little expensive (FY21 P/E of 35).

Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 – Best of the June Tests

first_imgSaturday Jun 30, 2012 Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 – Best of the June Tests The June internationals are now a thing of the past as the northern hemisphere now takes a break, while down south Super Rugby starts up again. Here’s a quick look at some of the best and worst from the June Tests, as put together by The Rugby Club. As we all know by now, the top three southern hemisphere sides took a clean sweep against the challengers from the north, with all three winning their respective series’. In some cases it was a near thing though, and it’s fair to say there were more than a few scares.Scotland, who got their tour to an incredible start with a win over an Australian team, continued their good form to go on to beat Fiji and Samoa, and actually returned home as the most successful of the northern hemisphere touring sides. Their winning celebration is of course included here, as it was one of the funniest moments of the year.Across the board the physicality was right up there, with South Africa and England in particular smashing each other for most of their three Tests. Two of the biggest tackles, which were featured here, are included in this week’s Plays, as are a few others you may not have seen yet.Their were dramatic wins, with Dan Carter’s drop goal against Ireland in the second Test, and Mike Harris’ last minute kick against Wales. Argentina also beat France with a late try. Unfortunately the second test, and perhaps the series, was very experimental for both of those sides, so perhaps not too much can be taken from the results.Overall it’s been a great few weeks with some memorable moments, and we’ll continue to cover some of them that haven’t been featured yet, so if you still have requests, please do get in touch.For now, enjoy this week’s Plays of the Week, with thanks as always to the good folk at Fox Sports.What was your best moment or highlight of the June Tests?

Excavated ConstructionCulunco is the name given to the paths situated in the middle of a dense vegetation, generally paths that were created for ancient villages of Latin America, like those of the Incas. This is as well the name that the architects from Al Borde chose for an excavated house in the middle of a sloping ground, surrounded by earth and trees in the Valley of Tumbaco, in Quito. The original project was composed of two houses, one of which was finally built, constructed with local materials. Save this picture!© Elaine GonzálezThe starting point was an intense contact with the nature, although it was modified by the harmonious presence of the house. The orthogonal volume is composed of two programs divided by the stairs of the entrance but united by a same excavation, same construction system and same roof. On one side, buried, are organised two bedrooms that are opened on the living room and the kitchen; on the other side, a music studio and a workshop. The privacy necessary for the bathrooms and bedrooms is created by the implantation: the site itself protects the private uses, while the glass facade is used around the social area. Save this picture!© Melanie KautzSave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© AL BORDEThe architectonic approximation is given by the climate, the costs and the simplified construction system. Tumbaco is situated 40 minutes from Quito and at 2600 meters above sea level. Its climate is warm and doesn’t need air conditioning, heating or any complex isolation systems. However it uses the sun as a source of heating. This context is why the architects chose glass for the whole perimeter of the house, the openings ensuring the ventilation. The thermal inertia produced by the buried part of the house allows an adequate thermal comfort. Save this picture!Save this picture!© AL BORDESave this picture!DiagramThe structure resulted from a modular system of eucalyptus trunks of a same size and diameter, seated on a stone wall with varied inclinations. This forest of sticks supports the paraboloide deck made of plywood sheets painted in white, that are inclinated towards a same vanishing point. The whole floor is made of smooth concrete. Save this picture!© Sebastián CoralThe structural modulation and the selection of materials easily accessible and simple allowed the property to become the construction of the project. In Ecuador, eucalyptus trunks are one of the cheapest materials of construction, usually used for formworks or temporary housing. Walls made of stonework are less expensive and easier to produce than walls of concrete. The constructive simplicity didn’t prevent the architects of creating strategic spatial relationships that guarantee beauty and comfort in the Culunco House. Text by: Simone Sayegh, Published in AU Magazine (256), July 2015Project gallerySee allShow lessThomas Heatherwick Wins Lifetime Achievement AwardArchitecture NewsSebastian Errazuriz Designs Audemars Piguet’s New Lounge at Art Basel Hong KongArchitecture News Share CopyHouses•Tumbaco, Ecuador Culunco House / AL BORDESave this projectSaveCulunco House / AL BORDE Ecuador “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAL BORDEOfficeFollowProductsGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTumbacoEcuadorPublished on April 05, 2016Cite: “Culunco House / AL BORDE” 05 Apr 2016.

Cold Rain May Hurt Newly Planted Corn

This is not a good combination for newly planted fields, says Rod King, agronomist with Brodbeck Seeds. “Planting into cold and wet is never good,” King told HAT. He was pleased to see a good deal of  planting take place around the state this week and even with the threat of cooler weather it was good to get the seed in the ground. “Mother nature gave us a couple of good days to get crops planted and I am happy with that,” he stated.Going forward, King says it may be a good idea to wait for more favorable weather conditions, “I never tell farmers  when to plant or not to plant. But there is a risk to planting in these cold and wet conditions.” He said, if the first water a seed takes in is cold, “it really messes up germination.”Purdue also reported an increased insect level this week, and King says scouting will be necessary very soon. “People really need to be paying attention to fields that were late to be burned down and had a lot of green material out there,” he said. “Those would be fields to pay a lot of attention to as the crop comes up. Scout intensively and watch for black cutworm and armyworm feeding.Listen to the complete interview with Rod Kinginterview with Rod King SHARE Home CROPS Cold Rain May Hurt Newly Planted Corn Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Trial of four pro-democracy activists, including blogger who studied in France

Trung, in particular, enjoyed freedom of expression during the years he studied information technology in the northern French city of Rennes. They all now face several years in prison for trying to exercise this basic right peacefully.All four defendants should be acquitted and released immediately. Convicting them unfairly will not help the authorities to satisfy the population’s expectations or put an end to a debate about the country’s future. On the contrary, it will just turn them into symbols that increase the pressure for freedom of expression.The four activists are accused of being the agents of foreign governments that want to destabilise Vietnam and of having links to the banned Democratic Party of Vietnam. In the government’s eyes, they are also guilty of drafting propaganda documents and inciting subversion online.Trung’s family told Reporters Without Borders that his father was allowed to visit him on 8 January for the third time since his arrest and that he seemed in good health and his morale was high. Trung was arrested at his parents’ home in Ho Chi Minh City on 7 July on a charge of propaganda against the state under article 88 of the criminal code.

SPAIN: RSF condemns European gag order on “Football Leaks”

first_img Two Spanish journalists killed in eastern Burkina Faso Real Madrid’s Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo / AFP RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns a Spanish judge’s injunction ordering 12 European newspapers to stop publishing the so-called “Football Leaks” revelations about alleged tax fraud by professional footballers. RSF regards the injunction as an attempt to censor on a continental scale.Issued last week by a judge in Madrid, the injunction accuses European Investigative Collaborations (EIC) ­– a consortium that includes Mediapart in France, Der Spiegel in Germany and El Mundo in Spain – of obtaining confidential information about European football stars, thereby violating “the fundamental right to the privacy of communications.”The gag order was issued in response to a complaint by Senn Ferrero – a law firm that provides tax advice to football personalities ­– alleging that the information published by the newspapers was obtained by means of hacking.The injunction demands a “publication ban, whether in printed or digital versions, of confidential information of a personal, financial, fiscal and/or legal nature of clients of Senn Ferrero.” “We express our support for the newspaper consortium that broke this story and we deplore this judicial decision, which constitutes a grave violation of the freedom to inform,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s European Union-Balkans desk. “The right to information must be protected and any judicial initiative designed to deprive the public of access to information must be condemned.”The initial reports published despite the ban claim that Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo may have hidden millions of euros in tax havens. The media outlets that make up the consortium have announced more revelations in the coming weeks.The Spanish judge said he would seek the cooperation of his counterparts in other European Union countries in order to ensure that the gag order is enforced throughout the EU.Spain is ranked 34th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

The funding round is led by prior investor Deerfield Management, and includes follow-on investment from prior unnamed seed investors. Coronary artery disease (CAD), the buildup of plaque in the wall of the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart, causes 9 million deaths worldwide each year. In CAD, patients can undergo stent placement to relieve symptoms, but one in five patients can experience a major adverse event. SpectraWAVE is developing a medical imaging platform that combines two state-of-the-art technologies providing high resolution plaque structure and content in coronary blood vessels. The imaging data aids interventional cardiologists during stent optimization and in their assessment of the patient’s risk for future adverse events. “This is an exciting day for the SpectraWAVE team who have made incredible progress developing a cost-effective, high quality, easy-to-use product for interventional cardiologists,” said Eman Namati, Ph.D., CEO of SpectraWAVE. “The continued commitment from Deerfield, in addition to the significant follow-on investments from prior investors further validates our intravascular imaging technology, and its potential to help patients globally.” With the new funds, SpectraWAVE will continue to scale the team, development, and operations ahead of a regulatory filing. The company has recently appointed additional experienced industry talent, including leaders in Image Analysis, Clinical Affairs, and Regulatory and Quality Affairs, and established a world-renowned Clinical Advisory Board of experts. “SpectraWAVE’s novel multi-modality imaging catheter aids physicians in targeted coronary interventions and has the opportunity to make a fundamental impact on the lives of coronary artery disease patients,” said Steve Hochberg, Partner at Deerfield Management, lead Series A-2 investor. “The complexity of mid-procedure visualization and its impact on clinical decision making requires a truly unique product and a talented team to bring it to market. SpectraWAVE has shown immense progress, and we’re pleased to continue our support as it rapidly moves towards its first regulatory filing.” About SpectraWAVE, Inc. SpectraWAVE, located in Bedford, MA, is a privately held medical device company founded in 2017 to improve coronary artery disease (CAD) outcomes with photonics. CAD, the buildup of plaque in the wall of the arteries that supply blood to the heart, affects 18.2 million adults age 20 and older. In CAD patients that undergo percutaneous stent placement, it is estimated that one in five patients experience adverse events, with half of those adverse events caused by high risk plaques that were previously left untreated. The SpectraWAVE medical imaging platform is a state-of-the-art integration of proven imaging technologies – designed to help interventional cardiologists understand their patients and optimize interventions.

Sips… read more By Jaine Treadwell Email the author “Anything I do, I like to do behind the scenes,” he said. “I never wanted or expected credit. That’s the way I am.”Campbell was the son of a sharecropper and grew up on Highway 223 somewhere between Sandfield and Ebenezer in rural Pike County.“We moved several times, from one tenant house to a little better one,” Campbell said. “Living way out in the country like that, when an airplane flew over, that was exciting. When we heard one coming, we’d run out in the field to watch it go over. I guess that was the beginning of my love of airplanes and flying.”The Campbell brothers made and flew paper airplanes, but their adventurous spirits urged them to “take flight” themselves. Later in the day, Campbell took time to reflect on the day and what it means to him.“This is a tremendous honor for someone who loves and appreciates flight so much,” he said. “It’s the highest honor that I could ever have. And, it means a lot to my family and will for generations to come. I never expected anything like this.”Campbell said he is much more comfortable behind the scenes. “We made an airplane out of scrap lumber and decided to fly it off the top of a dirt pit,” Campbell said with a laugh. “Huey got in the plane and we pushed him off and the plane went down like a rock. We thought we had killed him.”Campbell said the first “close up look” that he got of an airplane was when a pilot put down in a peanut field.“I had run out in the field with my brothers to see a plane come over,” he said. “One of my brothers had a hand mirror and he held it up and reflected the sunlight toward the plane.”For whatever reason, the pilot landed the plane in the peanut field.“It scared us to death because we thought we had caused the plane to land,” Campbell said. “When the pilot tried to take off, the wheels got tangled up in the peanut vines and it couldn’t get up.”Campbell and his brothers helped the pilot push the plane out onto the road where he could taxi and take off.The two-engine plane climbed into the sky. Campbell watched until it was out of sight. He said quietly to himself, “One day, that will be me.”When Campbell was in the ninth grade at Banks, his family moved to North Three Notch Street in Troy.“I finished out the year at Banks,” he said. “I would ride my bicycle out North Three Notch and catch the Sessions bus to school. The next year, I went to Charles Henderson High School.”Living in town provided Campbell with opportunities for new adventures.“On Sunday afternoons, some of us boys would hitch rides out to the airport in hopes of seeing planes land or take off,” he said. “One Sunday, a sign was posted that said, ‘Airplane rides $25.’ That was a lot of money back then but three of us saved up our money and pooled it and took a ride.”The airplane ride was even more than Campbell had imagined.“It was unbelievable,” he said. “The world looked so different from anything than I could have imagined it would be looking from the sky. At that young age, I was in awe of the beauty of God’s world.”But tragedy has a way of changing things.In the late 1960s, Campbell’s friend, who was a flight instructor at the Troy Airport, was killed in an air crash. That took the wind out of his sails. Then, a few years later, Campbell’s nephew, a student pilot, was killed in a crash near Brundidge.“Those were big blows to me and I said that I would not fly anymore,” Campbell said. “But the love of flying overcame those feelings.”About that time, Wiley Sanders was a young pilot and he took Campbell flying with him, first as tagalong and then as a student pilot. Before long, Sanders and Campbell became business partners and were their own corporate pilots.As the business grew, professional pilots were hired and Campbell didn’t fly as much.But he took notice of the conditions at the local airport.“The airport was not being maintained and planes were being stranded,” Campbell said. “When planes landed, there was often no way to refuel; pilots couldn’t get help if they needed it. But it didn’t have to be that way.Campbell knew that an airport could be a huge asset to a city and a community. Something had to be done. Somebody needed to get involved.Just how much time and money Campbell contributed to the airport, he either doesn’t know or doesn’t want to brag. But with his contributions and public funding, the Troy Municipal Airport is now a tremendous recruiting aid for Troy and Pike County and a “good front door” to the city.And, no one is could be prouder than N. Kenneth Campbell.“I have a genuine love of flying,” Campbell said. “Flying is a privilege. To be up in the sky and look down on the Earth, there’s no way to explain it – the beauty of what has been created so naturally. On a clear day, you can see forever. And no matter how many times I fly, I’m always in awe of the beauty of God’s world.” Published 11:30 pm Thursday, July 11, 2013 Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day On a cloudy, sultry, July morning, the veil came down on N. Kenneth Campbell Field at the Troy Municipal Airport.For Kenny Campbell, the ceremony was more emotional than he had expected and, perhaps, his heart beat a little too fast in appreciation of the honor and the recognition.He had not expected the airfield to be named in his honor and his emotions won out.
