Forget the stock market crash. I found 3 UK growth shares that have been flying!

first_img Paul Summers | Monday, 31st August, 2020 | More on: CLG FDEV KETL Despite general wariness in the UK market after March’s crash, there are still some growth shares experiencing great price momentum.Let’s look at three examples.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…Growing at a fair clipLast week’s record full-year results from logistics firm Clipper Logistics (LSE: CLG) were lapped up by the market and understandably so. At just over £500m, group revenue was up 8.8% over the year to the end of April thanks to strong organic growth. Profit after tax came in at £16.2m, up from 13.4m in 2019. Over the period, Clipper entered into new contracts with companies like Joules and the Very Group. It also extended existing deals with Boohoo-owned PrettyLittleThing.com and Sports Direct.  While the retail landscape may be in a tricky spot due to Covid-19, Clipper said that it had seen “a very positive start” to FY21 and “exceptionally high levels of demand” for the e-fulfilment and returns management services it provides. As a result, the company now believes that its full-year numbers will “comfortably exceed market expectations”.Trading on 21 times forecast earnings for FY21, Clipper isn’t cheap. With the potential to keep expanding in the UK and overseas, however, it could be a growth share worth paying up for. New frontiersAnother company doing very well for investors is videogames developer Frontier Developments (LSE: FDEV). Last Friday’s update sent the share price to an all-time high and, again, it’s easy to see why.Having met sales expectations so far in the financial year, Frontier now believes it will deliver revenue “within the top half of the current range of analyst projections” (between £83m and £95m). At least some of this will be generated from the slate of releases due between now and the end of May 2021. Jurassic World Evolution will hit the Nintendo Switch in November. Two other titles – Lemnis Gate and Struggling – are being launched under the Frontier’s new label for third-party publishing (Frontier Foundry). This part of the company forms a big part of its strategy over the next few years.In addition to this, there will be updates to existing titles: Elite Dangerous, Planet Coaster, and Planet Zoo. Frontier’s shares now trade on an eye-watering 61 times earnings. That’s too high for me (even for a growth share) but it could be one to pick up on general market weakness. Hot stockI’ve covered kettle safety control manufacturer Strix (LSE: KETL) quite a few times now. I can’t resist drawing attention to the small-cap once again. Since April, its shares have been on the boil, rising almost 90%.In July, Strix reported that performance over the first six months of 2020 had been “resilient“. A “marked recovery” in June coupled with a strong order book means it expects to report similar profits to those achieved last year. That’s not a bad outcome considering the supply side disruption it faced earlier in the year when factories in China needed to shut.Highly cash generative, Strix continues to reduce its debt pile. At the end of June, net debt stood at just under £37m. Due to cost-cutting, this was roughly £6m lower than originally targeted.Once a bargain, the stock now trades on a P/E of 16. With 14 new products due for launch this year, however, I can still see it moving higher. There’s a forecast yield of 3.5% to boot.  Image source: Getty Images.

Royston Wild | Thursday, 18th February, 2021 | More on: DVO The outlook for the global economy remains fraught with danger as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. But does this mean I’ll stop buying UK shares in my Stocks and Shares ISA? Not a chance.Here’s a British stock, and a soon-to-be-listed US share, that are on my buying radar today.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…#1: All aboard!There’s a variety of ways investors can ride the electric vehicle (EV) revolution. One is to buy shares in Arrival, whose IPO is slated for the coming weeks.This business has its operations in rural Oxfordshire but it’s about to begin trading on the NASDAQ with a value of $5.4bn. It has racked up $1.2bn worth of orders for its buses and its light commercial vehicles. The first of these are due to roll off the production line in late 2021.Data from Allied Market Research suggests that Arrival is about to enter a hugely-lucrative market. It reckons the electric bus market will be worth a whopping $31.5bn by 2027. This is up from $18bn in 2019.There are obviously risks associated with investing in Arrival at the time of its IPO. Stock prices can be extremely volatile in the few months following listing. And the true value of a UK or US share might not be fully apparent until the market excitement dies down. Said company might not actually be worth as much as you thought when you first bought in.There’s also the fact that getting all the information you need to make a sound investment decision isn’t always available pre-IPO. Only once Arrival goes public will the nuts and bolts of its operations be fully open for the public to pore over. And often only after a prolonged period do any warning signs often begin to emerge. Not that I’m suggesting that some hidden nasties will come out of Arrival down the road, of course.#2: A cheap UK food shareNow Devro’s (LSE: DVO) operations might not be as exciting as those of Arrival. This UK share is a giant in the field of making sausage casings. But its humble operations don’t make it any less of an attractive share, in my opinion.Rising wealth levels in emerging markets provide excellent long-term profits opportunities for Devro. It’s boosting the amount that people in these far-flung regions spend on more-expensive meat-based food products. The business already has sales offices and manufacturing plants in China. And further expansion in developing regions can be expected later down the line.The rising popularity of plant-based diets on ethical and environmental grounds provides some risk to Devro’s long-term profits outlook. There’s no guarantee that demand for pork products specifically will rocket in the years ahead either. Right now beef and poultry are the fastest-growing meat segments in Asia, for instance.But City analysts reckon the UK share will enjoy 8% annual earnings growth in 2021. This leaves it trading on a low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 12 times. With the business also boasting a 5.4% dividend yield, I reckon it’s a very-attractive stock.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The “House Place Jordan “contains structural interferences in an existing garden plant of a single family house in Klagenfurt – Viktring (Kärnten/Austria). Geometrical existing ways leading through the garden and extended in their function of ways – understood as linear surfaces of spatial possibilities – detaching, consolidating themselves, forming spatial compressions, into the earth disappearing or to the sky striving. Always co-ordinated as some kind of service to the user.Save this picture!The existing condition and the starting positionIn 1997 the house Jordan in “Klagenfurt” was built after the plans of the architect Wretschko. In 1999 was added a rising plate after sketches of Tom Mayne. One receives on the one hand the feeling that the house is positioned at a hill, on the other hand distinguishes the property itself from the environment and offers protection for “an internal” so called free space.Save this picture!Two geometrically linear ways through the garden open the most important places for the user. It was a desire by the owner that the garden should remain as a “wide” existing surface.A far field of different possibilities to use. There was a swimmingpool with a surrounding concrete area existing. Also a summerhouse was added in the following years – this should not exist any more and be cleared away.Save this picture!The main goal, which should be founded in a private competition under three architects, was to create on the one hand a new lounge (summerhouse), on the other hand in addition, certain separately elements distributed over the garden – an existing ‘”view-protection” should be removed – should be brought up for a new discussion. A new unit of not cultivated an cultivated surfaces in the garden should be achieved.Interferences in an existing gardenSave this picture!Due to the existing situation of the garden situation we tried to create and continue a kind of landscape character. The existing rather elementarily arising ways are taken up and subjected to spatial dynamics, different functions and tasks following. As simply accessible surfaces to stay around the swimming pool, as seat faces or couch surfaces, as a table….or as a roof, to offer protection or “view-protection to the neighbours.Also the stripes should create possible positions and movements, as the garden himself should be a free area of possible movements. In the area of the “pool-plate” six stripes line up on each other and take over different functions.Save this picture!A fragmentary strip as a ramp has the task leading to the lawn. We describe this as a kind changing stripe – coming of the garden and leading into the garden -….. immersing, releasing the movement and in the area of the “view-protection” again emerging, and receiving function.

Legacy consideration rises 10% in a year but not all charities keeping up with changing market

first_imgLegacy consideration rises 10% in a year but not all charities keeping up with changing market Tagged with: legacies legacy fundraising research AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2  431 total views,  2 views today 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. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com.  “Viewed through the perspective of an extended wait for revenue, the legacy sector can feel lethargic. When measured using up to date supporter metrics it’s clear the sector is in fact changing rapidly. Not only has consideration, a powerful future measure of revenue projection, increased by a proportionate 10% in a year, structural change is afoot such as media divergence, new entrants and increased competition. Not all charities will rise to the challenge. Indeed some of the leaders whilst still growing are not keeping up with the ‘pack’ and new entrants.” Melanie May | 24 February 2020 | News Legacy consideration rose 10% in the past year, while people are also increasingly happy to write their Will online, and residuary giving is becoming more acceptable, according to the latest legacy research from fastmap and Freestyle Marketing.Legacy Fundraising: The Only Constant is Change! shows a changing market with charities of all sizes seeing and seizing the opportunity. However, with increasing competition for gifts, others risk losing out if they are unable to meet the challenge of growing their own market share.Freestyle Marketing and fastmap interviewed over 15,000 people aged 50+ online about legacy giving, and another 5,000 people for their views on 100 different charities. This year’s legacy supporter interviews were more than double the length of those conducted previously, and have allowed many of the themes explored in 2018/19 to be extended and tracked, while new areas such as legacy TV adverts and the supporter journey have also been introduced.The research shows that legacy consideration has increased by 10% (41% to 45%) over the last year. However, the downside, according to the report, is that as more people become open to leaving a legacy, and more charities invest time and money on legacy marketing, charities need to grow legacy consideration just to maintain market share. And, while some charities, such as Cats Protection and RSPCA have grown or maintained legacy consideration over the past year, others, including Cancer Research UK, Macmillan, and RNLI have seen a drop.Other trends include online Will-writing gaining traction, with 41% overall now happy to write their Wills in this way, up from 32% in 2018/19. This includes 51% of 50-59 year olds (up from 40%), 38% of 60-69 year olds (up from 24%), and 27% of those aged 70+ – up from 14% in 2018/19.The sector’s openness to residuary giving is also increasing – up 10% since 2018/19, to reach 79%, with the report suggesting that charities should ask themselves whether they are doing enough to help their supporters to understand this area.Georgina Hyman, Senior Legacy & In Memory Manager, Alzheimer’s Research UK, comments in the report:“The insight and trends that fastmap and Freestyle have identified highlights just how far legacy fundraising has come. But we can’t rest on our laurels; it may be more crowded and competitive but the opportunity is bigger than ever before challenging us to make our charity, its cause and vision for the future resonate with supporters and prospects alike – if the legacy and brand team weren’t working closely before they really should be going forward.” Also commenting on the findings, David Cole, fastmap Managing Director, said: Advertisement  432 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2last_img read more
