I think this FTSE 250 stock could be a long-term growth pick. Here’s what I’d do now

I enjoy going to the cinema to see the latest film release. If you also enjoy the big screen experience, then this may be an opportunity for you.Cineworld (LSE:CINE) may be a young company, founded in 1995, but has risen to prominence and impressive scale. It is currently the second-largest cinema chain in the world, with approximately 9,500 screens across almost 800 sites. The group’s primary brands are Cineworld and Picturehouse (in the UK and Ireland), Regal (in the US), Cinema City (throughout Europe), and Yes Planet (in Israel). 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…Based on revenue, Cineworld became the UK’s largest cinema operator last year. Since the company derives 75% of its revenue from the huge US market, it is always wise to keep an eye on its activities across the pond. There’s no place like homeCineworld’s recent trading update in December was described as “below expectations.” The update showed a 10% drop in revenue compared to the same period previously. Perhaps a more telling piece of information was that box office sales took a big hit, with an almost 13% decrease. Another key nugget to take away is that there was an 8% drop in retail sales. I can’t help but think this is because people prefer to stay home and have access to cheaper, more convenient methods of watching the latest film. The ever-growing popularity of streaming services has to be a concern for a company that relies on the more traditional movie-watching experience.It appears that Cineworld plans to combat this trend by relying on a better quality product being available only in cinemas, rather than the straight-to-streaming options that are happening for more and more blockbusters. In December it announced a $2.1bn (£1.6bn) takeover of Canada’s Cineplex. The deal will add 165 cinemas and 1,695 screens and make Cineworld the largest cinema operator in North America.I’m going to make you an offer you can’t refuseLooking at the numbers I’m not very concerned by the 15% drop in share price in the previous month. In fact, I would view it as an opportunity to pick up shares. Profit figures for the previous four years have increased year on year, which is always a positive sign. The dividend per share had also been increasing year on year, except for a slight dip last year but that does not concern me too much. The current price-to-earnings ratio, which sits at just under 10, is not the most progressive, but the dividend yield is just over 7%, which is encouraging. Let’s not beat around the bush – there are potential short-term drawbacks to this stock. However, I think it could be a long-term growth option for your portfolio. I would not be put off by short-term issues, and focus more on the company’s acquisitions, market share, and propensity to continue growing.  Jabran Khan | Thursday, 27th February, 2020 | More on: CINE Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Image source: Getty Images Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! Official data released this Wednesday show that the UK has fallen into the deepest recession on record. Investors will likely be wondering what are the best UK shares to buy in a recession. Defensive stocks typically perform relatively well in a recession. However, I think some of the best UK shares to buy in a recession are the ones that might actually outperform when the economy sours.UK recessionA significant decline in economic activity that lasts more than a few months defines a recession. UK GDP contracted by 2.2% in the first quarter of 2020 and by a monumental 20.4% in the second. For reference, the worst quarterly decline during the great financial crisis was 2.1%. There are signs of a sharp recovery in the awaited third-quarter results, but this is from a relatively low base.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…It will not be a surprise that the coronavirus pandemic has hurt UK businesses. What may be surprising is that UK businesses have been struggling for quite some time. Research from Red Flag Alert indicates that there have been seven consecutive quarters of increasing financial distress among UK businesses, as of the second quarter of this year. Some 527,000 businesses are in financial distress, up 33,000 since the start of 2020. The real estate sector is particularly badly hit, seeing a 19% rise in cases of significant financial distress.With the recession, the pandemic still not under the control, and Brexit on the horizon, things could continue to get worse. Since stock prices reflect the performance of the underlying business, plenty of share prices could fall.Recession picksWhen the economy is in poor shape, corporate restructuring and insolvency proceedings are in demand. Companies in the the business of corporate restructuring and insolvency, like FRP Advisory Group (LSE: FRP) and Begbies Traynor (LSE: BEG) might actually do well in a recession. FRP expects to report a 16.4% rise in revenue for 2020 along with bumper profits. Begbies grew its revenue by 17% in 2020 and adjusted pre-tax profits rose by 31%. Both companies are reporting increasing caseloads. This is in spite of financial support for businesses from the UK government and the central bank. Financial difficulties are expected to increase as these supports are withdrawn, leading to more restructuring and insolvency work for FRP and Begbies.Be warned, however, both of these stocks are AIM-listed. They have small market capitalizations and their share prices could be volatile because the shares are illiquid. Something else to consider is that both these businesses get paid for work done with struggling or bust businesses. Payment can take months to collect, and of course, there is a risk that some fees may not be recovered. Both FRP and Begbies do reflect recovery risk in their financial statements, but assumptions can always be wrong.But even accounting for the risks, FRP and Begbies do look like some of the best UK shares to buy in a recession to help diversify and protect a portfolio. Both have solid business models that benefit from times of economic uncertainty. If I was choosing just one stock it would be FRP. Begbies has a property division that accounts for about 30% of sales and the real estate sector, as stated earlier, is really struggling.

"I think these are two of the best UK shares to buy in a recession"

I see three warning signs of a stock market bubble set to burst!

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images. 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. In nearly 34 years as an investor, I’ve seen plenty of crazy behaviour. In October 1987, I witnessed the US S&P 500 index collapse by a fifth in one day. During the dotcom boom, I saw shares of (in my view) worthless companies soar tenfold. By 2002, most had crashed to zero. In the global financial crisis of 2007–09, I observed banks collapsing or getting taxpayer bailouts. This year, I saw the FTSE 100 index crash by 35% in the spring and then rebound in the summer. These experiences, amassed over a third of a century, are warning me that a stock market bubble is forcefully inflating today.Warning sign #1 of a stock market bubbleFirst, there is a clear and obvious stock market bubble in the shares of electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers and suppliers. The world must transition to a low-carbon future by abandoning fossil-fuelled travel. Yet the current valuations of EV firms and battery makers are ludicrous. The poster child for this investor mania is Elon Musk’s Tesla. Tesla stock is up more than 840% in 12 months. With a current market cap of $616bn, Tesla will enter the S&P 500 on 21 December. Yet this values Tesla at almost $1.25m per car sold. That is, quite frankly, an insane overvaluation. Tesla is a barely profitable bit player in a huge global market. When its stock price implodes, investors will lose the hundreds of billions they made from 2020’s momentum-driven speculation.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…The second signal of bubble troubleMy second sign of a stock market bubble is in US growth stocks, notably the elevated share prices of American tech firms. Many of the mega-techs trade on price-to-earnings ratios above 50 (which equates to a measly earnings yield of 2% a year). That bakes a lot of future earnings growth into current stock prices. Even worse, some newer entrants trade on high multiples of their annual revenues (because their earnings are negative). This disturbs me, because all these ‘next tech’ businesses seem to do is scale up losses as they grow. Every recent tech flotation has seen first-day prices soar, yet there can only be a few winners among these competitors. How can they all be worth 10 to 200 times their modest sales? Some shareholders will get their fingers burned.More bubble strugglesMy third warning of a stock market bubble is the huge disconnect in the US between Wall Street optimism and Main Street reality. Although there is no direct causal link between GDP (gross domestic product) and stock prices, recessions generally drive share prices down. For example, the mother of modern crashes came between 2007 and 2009, when the US housing market collapsed, causing economic insecurity and huge job losses. In 2020, US GDP may decline by as much as 4%, but the S&P 500 is up by almost a fifth in the past year. If 2021 turns out to be anything other than perfect in economic terms, bubble stocks will surely suffer.What will I do next?I’m not going to sell everything and head for a log cabin to shelter from the coming storm. What I plan to do in 2021 is to reduce my family’s exposure to highly rated growth shares, particularly in the US. I aim to rebalance our portfolio into lowly rated value stocks, especially the cheap shares lurking in the FTSE 100. But, given the lack of income on offer from bonds, gold, and Bitcoin, we shall stick with stocks for now. I see three warning signs of a stock market bubble set to burst!

UK stock investing: the best FTSE 100 growth share to buy now

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. UK stock investing: the best FTSE 100 growth share to buy now UK stock investing can be a challenging pastime, especially when it comes to finding growth shares. Indeed, investing in growth stocks can be incredibly risky because trying to forecast how a company will perform in the next few years is virtually impossible. That’s not just limited to growth shares. It’s the same with all investments. However, by focusing on blue-chip FTSE 100 stocks, I believe it’s possible to reduce the risk of investing in growth shares.These large multi-billion-pound companies tend to have more checks and balances in place than smaller firms, which means the risk of something going wrong is significantly reduced. However, it’s always going to be impossible to eliminate the threat.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…With that in mind, here’s one FTSE 100 growth share I’m considering adding to my portfolio today. UK stock investing opportunityHikma Pharmaceuticals (LSE: HIK) is, in my opinion, one of London’s hidden growth stars. The FTSE 100 company is one of the largest producers of generic medicines around the world.These products are vital for healthcare systems worldwide as, without them, treating patients would cost significantly more. When a drug is first launched, it’s protected by a patent for several years. This allows its producer to recoup the development costs and earn a profit.However, other producers, like Hikma, can jump into the market when the drug comes off-patent. It can manufacture and sell treatments for much less than the branded version. In some cases, the discount is 70% or more. This is a huge business, and it’s only likely to grow.But Hikma is always developing new products. It also produced some of the essential drugs used to treat coronavirus patients. Hikma is one of the primary producers of dexamethasone used to treat patients hospitalised with Covid-19. This helped the company to a 6% increase in revenues for 2020. Operating profit jumped 17% to $566m. FTSE 100 growth Of course, operating a business that’s based around the idea of generic versions of others’ products has significant risks. The company is always fighting legal battles, and this is just an extra cost of doing business.It’s also suffered several setbacks whereby regulators have prevented its generic version of a branded product from coming to market. Significant legal battles and substantial product setbacks have impacted the company’s stock price in the past. As long as the corporation is in the business of generic pharmaceuticals, this will continue. Despite these risks, I’d buy the FTSE 100 growth stock for my portfolio today. Healthcare is a growing market. I don’t think that’s going to change.What’s more, affordable healthcare is an increasing issue worldwide, and Hikma is one company policymakers can rely on to produce treatments at affordable prices. However, this could become a risk if those policymakers move in another direction.

Exeter win Heineken Champions Cup 2019-20

first_imgChiefs are crowned European champions after beating Racing 31-27 at Ashton Gate  History makers: Exeter Chiefs celebrate their Champions Cup win after a pulsating final in Bristol (Getty) Exeter win Heineken Champions Cup 2019-20Exeter Chiefs are European champions.The English side’s brutal efficiency when given opportunities in their opponents’ 22 came to the fore yet again as they beat Racing 31-27 in the Heineken Champions Cup final at Ashton Gate.The triumph marks an incredible rise for the Chiefs, who were promoted to the English top flight only ten years ago. It also means West Country sides hold both European titles after Bristol’s Challenge Cup win over Toulon on Friday night.Rob Baxter’s side did not have it all their own way in a match of high tension and drama, and they had to see out the closing stages with just 14 men as Racing threatened to repeat the dramatics of their semi-final when they beat Saracens with a late try.Yet the Chiefs defence held firm and then they were awarded a penalty to seal the victory in the final minute, only for more drama to follow as there was confusion over whether the match had passed the 80-minute mark when Joe Simmonds’s kick went through the posts with the stadium clock showing there were two seconds left.It was a somewhat anti-climatic finish for Exeter as they had to wait for Nigel Owens to get confirmation that he could blow the final whistle – the stadium clock was out of sync – but then came the celebrations. It’s a dream start and it’s just vintage @ExeterChiefs The prolific Luke Cowan-Dickie draws first blood in the #ChampionsCupFinal! pic.twitter.com/HzIkCNWTOP— Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) October 17, 2020They doubled their lead in the 16th minute, this time opting for a tap from the penalty – another of their preferred moves this season – and Sam Simmonds, with a little help from Dave Ewers, powered over.Related: Dave Ewers on how to latchThen, suddenly, Racing were back in the game. They moved the ball to the right, Chiefs wing Tom O’Flaherty blitzed up in defence and Simon Zebo found the space on the outside to score in the corner midway through the first half.The French side narrowed the gap further when Juan Imhoff got through the Exeter defence with a dummy after a sustained period of pressure in the 22. Show and GONE Juan Imhoff spots his moment and strikes! What a game we have on our hands here!#ChampionsCupFinal pic.twitter.com/y7vwGe9YZ5 “The fairytale is complete!

Incredible scenes, what an amazing story!#ChampionsCupFinal pic.twitter.com/hrxUBYDU4T— Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) October 17, 2020While the Racing contingent in the stands tried to create an atmosphere in a stadium without fans by blasting regularly on air horns, Exeter went about things in a quieter, more measured manner, albeit one that was extremely effective.Their slow walk onto the pitch before kick-off was in contrast to the pace Jack Nowell showed in chasing down Teddy Iribaren, the Racing scrum-half whose error-riddled performance saw him replaced at half-time, and winning a penalty.Another penalty followed from the ensuing lineout and Luke Cowan-Dickie touched down for the opening try after eight minutes as the Chiefs launched one of their trademark mauls.center_img — Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) October 17, 2020That made it 14-12 after 33 minutes but the Chiefs went into the break with a nine-point lead with their third try just before half-time whistle.Another good chase from Nowell gave Exeter a five-metre lineout and they patiently went through a series of pick-and-goes before Harry Williams barrelled over under the posts.There was a dramatic start to the second half when Imhoff intercepted a Chiefs pass and broke down the wing before being tackled into touch by Henry Slade. The TMO came in to look at the tackle – it was ruled high and Racing got a penalty but there was no yellow card for Slade as the officials ruled his arm had initially hit on the shoulder and then ridden up.Zebo went over for his second shortly after as Finn Russell threw a long pass to the full-back, who picked an arcing line and backed himself to get over despite the attentions of two Chiefs defenders.Chiefs hit back immediately as Nowell picked off another long Russell pass, slipped the ball inside to Slade and the centre had a simple run-in.

After 50 minutes, it was 28-24 to Exeter and tensions started to rise.The Chiefs went through nearly 20 phases in the Racing half but struggled to make significant territory gains before the French side won a breakdown penalty – one of many in the game.Virimi Vakatawa had been kept in check pretty well by the Chiefs but he made an powerful break in the 64th minute and only an Ollie Devoto tackle five metres out stopped him scoring. Racing did get a penalty, though, and Maxime Machenaud slotted it to make it a one-point game with 15 minutes to go.Racing launched a strong attack from a scrum in their own half and took play to close to Exeter’s line. Then Tomas Francis was yellow-carded for a deliberate knock-on as he tapped down a Machenaud pass close to the line.There was no penalty try with other defenders who would have been able to cover, but it did lead to a multi-phased attack and Antonie Claassen looked like he was going to go over for a crucial try only to be held up and Exeter to win a penalty. It was an impressive defensive stand from the Chiefs and a pivotal moment in the match.Moment of triumph: Joe Simmonds celebrates as Nigel Owens blows the final whistle (Getty Images)The Chiefs cleared the threat, retained possession and were then awarded a penalty of their own in the final minute that Simmonds slotted from long range.That delay in blowing the final whistle didn’t dampen celebrations. Baxter admitted it was far from Exeter’s best performance, but they got the result that mattered.“My emotions are all over the place – it was a funny game; it wasn’t an Exeter Chiefs type of game,” he said. “We had pressure from driving lineouts but we couldn’t piece the game together.“In some ways it was our poorest attack and defence of the season. But at the end of the day we won the game on the scoreboard and that’s what people will remember in two years.“We’ve had our first game in the European semi-finals and the European final and we’ve won both, so it’s pretty nice to learn lessons by winning. Attitude saw us through.”Now the European title has been achieved the Chiefs’ focus will switch to doing the double with the Gallagher Premiership final next weekend.last_img read more

Photo courtesy ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] The first joint pastoral visit by a pope and an archbishop of Canterbury could take place in South Sudan early next year, the Vatican and Lambeth Palace announced last night. The news came after a private audience between Pope Francis and Archbishop Justin Welby at the Vatican’s Casa Santa Marta guest house.“During the friendly talks we focused on the condition of Christians in the world and on some situations of international crisis, with particular reference to the painful reality facing South Sudan,” the Vatican Press Office said in a bulletin. “At the end of the meeting the Holy Father and the Archbishop of Canterbury agreed that, if the political situation in the country should allow the establishment of a transitional government of national unity in the next 100 days, at the expiry of the agreement signed in recent days in Entebbe, in Uganda, they intend to visit South Sudan together.”Read the full article here.

Football fans were also invited to donate to collection buckets at the match. 50p from every purchase of the programme also went to The Arsenal Foundation.The money raised from the match will support the Foundation’s work with its charity partners. With Save the Children this involves creating more safe places for children to play football in north London and overseas, while with Bob Wilson’s Willow Foundation, the Foundation helps to provide special days to seriously ill young adults. The Foundation also works locally with Centrepoint and many others through the Gunners’ Fund and Islington Giving.The match was heralded by a short film featuring goalkeeper Petr Cech catching coins instead of balls to put in collecting buckets.  137 total views,  3 views today Arsenal squad continues Christmas tradition of annual charity matchday Melanie May | 22 December 2017 | News  138 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3last_img read more

National Trust cuts plastic from membership cards

first_img Melanie May | 26 February 2020 | News  500 total views,  2 views today National Trust cuts plastic from membership cards Tagged with: environment The National Trust will no longer use plastic in its 5 million member cards, it has announced.From the beginning of March, the charity will begin to remove 12.5 tonnes of plastic from the annually issued membership cards, which will now be made from a super-strength paper with a tough water-based coating. The paper is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the cards are being produced in a mill powered by its own biomass.As well as being a fraction of the price to produce, the new ‘paper’ card will replace the old one, which was made from plastic and chalk, and can be composted or thrown away with paper as part of regular household recycling.The National Trust believes it is the first time in the UK that the new, entirely recyclable and compostable material is being used for a membership card on such a large scale.The new cards will begin arriving with membership renewals from March.A recent survey showed that reducing the charity’s impact on the environment is high on the agenda for the Trust’s supporters with more than half of members prepared to make lifestyle changes to benefit the environment, and the majority saying that of the Trust’s actions to tackle climate change, reducing single-use plastics was their top priority.Mel Nursaw, from the Trust’s membership team, said: “Replacing our membership cards is a great step towards helping to reduce our impact on the environment, which we know is an important issue for so many of our supporters.”The National Trust is undertaking a range of measures to help protect the natural environment and tackle climate change. It has committed to phasing out selling single use plastics, and is currently exploring how to transfer its physical cards to digital ones. Initiatives already undertaken include replacing food and drink packaging with compostable, plant-based materials; introducing a discount on hot drinks for bringing your own cup; offering free water to reduce plastic bottle use; moving to reusable plant pots and trays at its nurseries; and switching the wrapping on 4.5million members’ magazines from plastic to potato starch. Other areas it is looking at include removing plastic from most of its greetings cards and wrapping paper; looking at alternatives to plastic tree guards; trialling cordial drink dispensers to reduce the sale of bottled drinks; and working with suppliers on more sustainable packaging for shipping.Lizzy Carlyle, Head of Environmental Practices at the National Trust, said: Advertisement “As an organisation committed to creating and maintaining a healthy and more beautiful natural environment, we are determined to use every opportunity to minimise our use of non-renewable resources, and cut down our waste.“We have taken a number of significant steps to make improvements, but with an organisation the size of the National Trust it isn’t always something that happens overnight. We know there is much more we can do, and taking steps like replacing our 5m membership cards will significantly help us protect our environment.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2  501 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
