This UK growth share is up over 700% since the market crash. I’d sell NOW!

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Paul Summers | Tuesday, 24th November, 2020 | More on: AO KWS Image source: Getty Images. 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. Enter Your Email Address 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. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! One of the best investments to have made during March’s market crash would have been to buy shares in online electrical retailer AO World (LSE: AO). Thanks to a flurry of demand for laptops and PCs generated by the first UK lockdown, the former small-cap’s value was up over 700% by yesterday’s close.In spite of today’s half-year results however, I still can’t be tempted. Quite the opposite, in fact.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…“A half-year like no other”Revenue jumped 53.2% to £717m over the six months to the end of September.  Broken down, sales in the UK moved 53.9% higher to £616.4m as people dashed to prepare for working from home. Although a much smaller part of its business, revenue from AO’s operations in Germany also climbed 85.2% to just over £100m. At first glance, the bottom line looks even more encouraging. Pre-tax profit jumped no less than 417.1% to £18.3m following last year’s £5.9m loss. How much?!Commenting on today’s results, CEO and founder John Roberts reflected that the six months of trading had been “a half-year like no other” and that AO’s market had changed “forever.”  I completely agree. While I wouldn’t call time on the high street just yet, it does feel like online will become the dominant way to shop in the years ahead. Nevertheless, there remain a few reasons why I can’t be tempted to buy AO.  The main problem, in my view, is the valuation. Despite being barely profitable, the market thinks AO is now worth a staggering £1.9bn.To justify this price tag, I need it to be the go-to destination for UK shoppers in this space. Not only is this not the case, it’s also clear AO simply doesn’t have the financial firepower to compete with the likes of, say, US giant Amazon over the long term.As good as today’s swing to profit was, there’s still net debt of £20.7m on the balance sheet. To put things in perspective, fellow online UK retailer Boohoo has net cash of £345m. Now, that’s a war chest!With hopes the coronavirus storm may be over by next spring, I’m also inclined to think 2021 won’t be as kind to AO as management suspects. After all, laptops, washing machines or fridges aren’t weekly, monthly, or even annual purchases.No, if I’m to pay up for a stock, I must feel confident that recent momentum will last. This is why I’d be more likely to buy video game services provider Keywords Studios (LSE: LWS) over AO World.“Significantly ahead”Today, the Dublin-based business revealed it now expects full-year adjusted pre-tax profit to come in “significantly ahead of the current market consensus,” at €52m. That’s down to continued strong trading and “good cost control.“ All the more impressive, considering the disruption caused by Covid-19 on production schedules for games. With the new Playstation 5 and Xbox consoles likely to be topping Christmas wishlists, I can see the good times continuing. Let’s not forget the exponential growth of eSports either!Taking today’s gain into account, shares in Keywords are a little over 60% higher in value since the market crash. That’s nothing compared to AO World’s gains. But I know which business I’d be more comfortable owning.After such a strong run, I’d be inclined to take profits on AO and run. center_img This UK growth share is up over 700% since the market crash.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsA new Toorak home raises the bar of architectural excellence and wellness designAn unmissable luxury three-level Toorak mansion, which incorporates wellness technology throughout, stands out as a strong design statement in the upmarket neighborhood. Designed by FGR Architects, the home, located on Teringa Place, is the first in Australia to incorporate the wellness platform Darwin by global company Delos, which uses leading technology to monitor and purify a home’s air, filter water, adapt to natural light and mitigate harmful indoor environmental concerns.Save this picture!© Peter BennetsSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Peter BennetsPutting wellness at the heart of the home aligns closely to the architects’ principals and provided a groundbreaking opportunity to incorporate this world-leading technology into a luxury home. – “Our design for Teringa Place was guided by using pure, raw and simple materials to apply an innovative approach and create a home that enriches lives, which allowed for the seamless integration of wellness technology”, said Feras Raffoul, director of FGR Architects.Save this picture!© Peter BennetsThe design itself – a fluid concrete façade with cascading tinted glass – has an immense presence on the streetscape. Protected from the street by a solid concrete wall, rolling grass follows the baton-like structure, subtly leading down to a seven-car basement with room for a gym.  The main entry point of the home is also protected by a statement solid black gate and individual batten-like fence, creating a private walkway with solid powder coated aluminum used to create a definitive pathway. Save this picture!© Peter BennetsUpon entering the home, there is an immediate emphasis on spatial volume, with 7m high glass creating an overall sense of transparency throughout the home which consists of 1022sqm of living space. An office and study space is strategically placed at the entry point of the home, creating a private work environment which is comfortably separated from the lounge area and the rest of the house.Save this picture!© Peter BennetsFGR Architects Director Feras Raffoul explains that deliberate design language was used to emphasize the importance of space and enhance the sense of wellbeing in the home: “Deliberate design language has been used to create a softness from the entry point to the inside living area of the home, which is open-plan and well-lit due to the vast glass panels which have been installed. – “We chose to incorporate the glazed façade to maximize full sunlight during the day and window furnishings can be used to provide protection in the evening. The home was designed so that the canopy delicately peels away to fully utilize natural light and add to the sense of space and wellbeing we wanted to achieve,” says Feras.Save this picture!© Peter BennetsThe mid-level of the home is specifically designed for entertaining guests and catering for a large family, with the dining area smoothly transitioning to the self-cleaning pool, alfresco and sunbathing space through large, foldaway glass doors. – “This property has been designed to cater for the differing needs of a large family. The mix of open-plan and private space created in this home allows for all types of families to live together under one roof,” Feras continues.Save this picture!© Peter BennetsA clean and considered palette has been used with all wall surface areas, including cement renders complemented with bluestone and timber flooring. Dark joinery has been used throughout the home, fitting expertly with the sealed glass against steel structure that makes the front façade. The expansive kitchen is complete with a butler’s pantry and large statement marble island bench. All north facing, the kitchen, dining, and living area maximize natural light and ensure good solar activity. The home itself is also environmentally friendly with a superior energy efficiency rating.Save this picture!© Peter BennetsMoving to the third level, the staircase is elegantly completed with floor length glass railings that lead to five bedrooms each complete with ensuites and walk-in wardrobes. The lavish master bedroom further includes a full dressing room and hidden television.“We tried to do something a bit different with this property and we believe, architecturally speaking, it now sits in its own category. With its gentle curves, the design is fluid and there is a softness from every entry point which translates to the modern approach to living and wellness in the home,” Feras added.Save this picture!© Peter BennetsProject gallerySee allShow lessGoede Doelen Loterijen & Dutch Charity Lotteries Head Offices / Benthem Crouwel Arch…Selected ProjectsCivic Center in Lohr am Main / Bez+Kock ArchitektenSelected Projects Share Builder: “COPY” Teringa / FGR Architects Year:  Area:  942 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/911544/teringa-fgr-architects Clipboard SFO Construction “COPY” Manufacturers: Eco Outdoor, Gaggenau, Lift Shop, Cremone, Delos, Elba, Lapege, PTF Photographs CopyHouses•Toorak, Australia Feras Raffoul, Andrew Karabatsakis, Williams Liau Photographs:  Peter Bennets Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Australia Lead Architects: Save this picture!© Peter Bennets+ 27Curated by Paula Pintos Share Teringa / FGR ArchitectsSave this projectSaveTeringa / FGR Architects 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/911544/teringa-fgr-architects Clipboard Houses Architects: FGR Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeFGR ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesToorakAustraliaPublished on February 17, 2019Cite: “Teringa / FGR Architects” 16 Feb 2019.

Giving by family foundations increases to £1.63bn

first_imgGiving by family foundations increases to £1.63bn Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis UK family charitable foundations donated £1.63 billion last year, the largest total since the Family Foundation Giving Trends series began tracking them in 2008.The sixth annual edition of Family Foundation Giving Trends reports that donations have increased despite the fact that family foundations have experienced a drop in total income of 18.6% in real terms, almost double that experienced by the broader charitable foundation sector. This might be because family foundations are twice as reliant on income from investments as other charitable foundations.[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]Family foundations contribute almost three fifths of foundation giving by value – 59%. In the US it is 42%.[/quote]Similarly the report reveals that last year there was a 35% drop in donations being made into new and existing family foundations. This could threaten future levels of grantmaking.Family foundation giving is still the dominant form of foundation giving, accounting for 59% of all foundation giving by value.Top family foundationsThe top five family foundations by giving are:Wellcome TrustGatsby Charitable FoundationLeverhulme TrustWolfson FoundationGarfield Weston Foundation Tagged with: Funding Research / statistics About Family Foundation Giving TrendsFamily Foundation Giving Trends is produced by Professor Cathy Pharoah of the Centre for Giving and Philanthropy at the Cass Business School. It is published by the Association of Charitable Foundations, with substantial support from the Pears Foundation. Data for the report was provided by Charity Financials. It details the top 100 family foundations in the UK by giving, with analysis and comment on their giving, and the nature of their contribution to UK civil society.A ‘family foundation’ is one that has been founded through family, individual or family business wealth.Professor Pharoah also produces a sister report, Foundation Giving Trends, which examines the broader foundation sector.She  said:“Our findings shine a light on the continued importance of family wealth to civil society, with spending reaching an all-time high and evidence of dynamism to be found in the range of new entrants into the top 100. However, the report suggests a possible boom in building foundations and income just before the recession. Can such expansion now be maintained through a time of lower growth and investment returns?”center_img Total family foundation income 2013 Howard Lake | 2 July 2014 | News  22 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

J. S. Tissainayagam Named First Winner of Peter Mackler Award for Courageous and Ethical Journalism

first_imgNews August 31, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 J. S. Tissainayagam Named First Winner of Peter Mackler Award for Courageous and Ethical Journalism Related documents Press releasePDF – 128.34 KB United StatesAmericas Global Media Forum and the US branch of Reporters Without Borders are pleased to announce that respected Sri Lankan journalist and editor J. S. Tissainayagam has been selected as the first winner of the Peter Mackler Award for Courageous and Ethical Journalism. Tissainayagam will be formally awarded the prize at a ceremony at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on October 2, 2009. The key note speaker for the ceremony will be Marcus Brauchli, executive editor of the Washington Post. J. S Tissainayagam is a respected Tamil journalist and editor who wrote for the North Eastern Monthly Magazine and the Sunday Times in Sri Lanka. And is the founder of the website Outreachsl.com. He was arrested March 7, 2008 by the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) of the Sri Lanka police. He has been charged under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) amid allegations of physical and emotional abuse by TID forces and got a 20 year sentence on terrorism charges today. “The imposition of this extremely severe sentence on Tissainayagam suggests that some Sri Lanka judges confuse justice with revenge,” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) said. “With the help of confessions extracted by force and information that was false or distorted, the court has used an anti-terrorism law that was intended for terrorists, not for journalists and human rights activists.” RSF_en Help by sharing this information June 3, 2021 Find out more Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says The Peter Mackler Award for Courageous and Ethical Journalism was founded in June, 2008 to honor the memory of Peter Mackler, a Brooklyn-born thirty-five year veteran journalist who championed ethical journalism, freedom of expression, and who helped transform the news agency Agence France Press (AFP) into the international competitor it is today. Mackler also founded Global Media Forum, which has helped train journalists and non-profit organizations to use the media as a tool for social change, and Project Plato, which teaches journalism as a life skill to teenagers.The Peter Mackler award rewards journalists who fight courageously and ethically to report the news in countries where freedom of the press is either not guaranteed or not recognized. The Award ceremony will take place on October 2, 2009 at 6PM at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, 529 14th St. N.W, 13th Fl.; Washington, DC 20045.

Jean-Francois Julliard, Secretary General of RSF, stated that “We are happy to reward J. S. Tissainayagam in 2009, a terrible year for Sri Lanka. This country needs journalists who are determined and concerned with finding the truth. J. S. Tissainayagam is one of those and should never have been imprisoned. Sri Lanka will never know peace if the press is not free to play its role of fourth power. Sri Lankans have the right to be informed about what is happening on their island.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy St. Francis’ Daniel Scott may be the area’s most complete football player.The Golden Knights senior rarely comes off the field.It’s not just at receiver on offense or in the defensive backfield that Scott makes his presence felt.Last Friday, on special teams, he scooped up a punt and took it in for a touchdown in the Golden Knights’ 38-28 victory over La Salle in the Angelus League opener for both schools.St. Francis (6-0) continues league play this Saturday when it hosts Salesian (5-1) at 7 p.m.Scott has 21 catches for over 400 yards and a team-best six receiving touchdowns.He also leads St. Francis with four interceptions.In the last year and a half, Scott has caught over 55 passes for 980 yards and 10 touchdowns.What makes Scott the Golden Knights’ go-to guy?“As a receiver, he has a knack for getting open and finding the open space,” longtime St. Francis coach Jim Bonds said. “He has exceptional hands and does a great job studying film and knowing where the open space will be in opposing defenses. As a defensive back, he has great vision. He has quarterback eyes as a safety and knows where the ball is going before it is thrown.”Not only is the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder a pure athlete, Scott has an instinct that can’t be taught.His selflessness is what stands out to many.We’ve asked him on multiple occasions after victories this year in which Scott played a starring role about his own performance, and he immediately changes the conversation to “we.”Maxx Jakeway, Will Mudie and Matt Nixon make up the four captains with Scott, and given the label “Golden Knight,” a title that is the highest honor in Jim Bonds’ program..“When I was younger, I really looked up to the captains as people who did things the right way, and now it’s an incredible honor to be one of the four captains,” Scott said.His quarterback couldn’t be more proud to go to battle every Friday with Scott.“Daniel is a great leader on and off the field,” quarterback Michael Bonds said. “He is also a great friend and someone who makes sure everyone is doing their job. We have a lot of great players, but when a big play needs to be made, we know we can count on Daniel to make it.”And it’s not just his on-the-field prowess that is impressive.Scott has a 3.4 grade-point average and is someone coach Bonds called “very intelligent.”His family has been a source of inspiration.Scott’s brother Chris is his “right-hand man.”His dad, Duane, and he ‘live for football,’ and Scott says his father is his biggest fan, but also isn’t afraid to let Daniel know when his play is less than stellar.But Scott heaps his biggest praise for his mother, Janet.“She is someone who always supports me, is always proud of me, and yet she can tell me the truth when I need to hear it. I can’t begin to express how much her love has meant to me.”As mentioned, Scott takes issue with talking about his share of the credit for the perfect season thus far, and while he’s done more than his part, the Golden Knights are loaded with impact players.Quarterback Michael Bonds has over 1,000 yards passing and 12 TDs.The running back duo of Jace Harrick and Elijah Washington have a combined 9 touchdowns, and Will Mudie, Greg Dulcich and Gabriel Mathews have been solid all year as part of the Golden Knights’ receiving core.The bend-but-don’t-break defense has also played an enormous role in six straight wins, and is led by Maxx Jakeway, Gabriel Grbavac and Bobby Gazmarian, to name a few.His coach and many others believe Scott has Division 1 college talent and they all hope he gets his chance.Scott is a guy that any coach or school would be proud to call their own.When asked if he could have a conversation with any person living or dead, we thought maybe he’d name a star athlete or celebrity.But Scott didn’t hesitate in mentioning his late grandfather John Cardoza, his mother’s dad.“I really want to tell him how well we’re doing, because I know how happy and proud he’d be,” Scott said. “I’d like the chance to tell him one more time that I love him.”It’s not just his teammates and coaches on campus at St. Francis that admire Scott.Despite being crosstown rivals in league, La Salle coach Russell Gordon didn’t hesitate to praise who he respectfully calls “Number 3.”“Daniel is a phenomenal athlete and is someone opponents need to try and stop or at least contain to try and beat St. Francis,” Gordon said. “We knew he was a game changer and he didn’t do anything last Friday to change our minds.”When football is over, Scott will go straight to the Golden Knights basketball team and run the offense as the St. Francis point guard.He’s got plenty of time left, though, and Scott wants to first win an Angelus League title, and hopes to make a deep run in the CIF-SS Division 3 playoffs.Currently, St. Francis is ranked No. 3 in the CIF polls and No. 41 in the entire state of California by MaxPreps.How does Scott want to be remembered when his time is done on the football field by his younger teammates?“I hope they think of me as someone who worked hard, was always there for my teammates and was willing to do anything I could to help our team win games.”Getting To Know Daniel Scott:Favorite Football Player: Wes WelkerFavorite Sports Movie: Any Given SundayFavorite Movie: Fast and the FuriousFavorite Musical Artist: FutureFavorite Childhood Football Team: UCLAFavorite TV Show: ESPN Sports CenterQuotable: “Daniel is not only a Golden Knight (one of our four captains), he is an exceptional leader on offense, defense and special teams!
