Want to make a million? 2 UK shares I’d buy right now

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Today, I’m going to take a look at two UK shares I believe have the potential to help investors make a million in the market. UK shares to buy nowJD Sports Fashion (LSE: JD) is one of the best-performing UK-listed retail stocks. Over the past decade, the company has gone from strength to strength as it’s capitalised on its position in the UK casual footwear market. 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…Management has also leveraged the company’s online social media exposure to help drive sales. This is just one of the reasons why the group’s profit has increased threefold over the past five years. During this period, many other retailers have collapsed. So JD seems to have cracked the retail code. That’s why I think the stock could be one of the best-performing UK shares in the years ahead. While the coronavirus crisis hasn’t been kind to the group, it’s still set to report a profit of nearly £200m in 2020. Management may also be able to use the turmoil in the retail sector to extract better terms from its landlords. This could lead to wider profit margins. And with fewer competitors in the market, JD may also be able to take market share. As such, I’m optimistic about the outlook for the group, which has already achieved explosive earnings growth in the past decade. Tech winnerThe coronavirus crisis has accelerated the adoption of technology around the world. Unfortunately, it’s also lead to a spike in scams and online threats.Avast (LSE: AVST) is one of Europe’s premier cybersecurity companies. The demand for its services has jumped this year. Analysts are expecting the group to report a 46% increase in earnings for 2020. That’s a considerable increase and puts Avast in an elite league of UK shares. What’s more, this growth seems as if it’s here to stay because most of the company’s products are sold on a subscription basis. This produces a recurring revenue stream for Avast and its investors. Despite this growth, the stock looks cheap. It’s trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 20. That’s compared to the UK IT Services sector average of 26. Based on these figures, the stock could be undervalued by as much as 30%. Therefore, I think this organisation could be one of the best UK shares to buy right now. Not only is it one of the few pure tech stocks listed on the London market, but it also looks as if shares in Avast are undervalued compared to the rest of the technology sector. Only adding to the company’s appeal is a 2.1% dividend yield, which is covered twice by earnings per share. Overall, it looks to me as if this business has the potential to produce large total returns for investors in the years ahead. As technology continues to play an increasingly important part of our day-to-day lives, Avast should continue to prosper.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Why I think this is an underrated FTSE 100 stockcenter_img See all posts by Manika Premsingh The stock in question is the FTSE 100 precious metals miner Polymetal International (LSE: POLY). One might think it’s obvious why the share is trading at a relatively low price. There’s a stock market rally underway, and safe stocks are out of favour. Duh. But I think it would be a mistake to think of this share as a stock market crash play. A look at POLY’s past performance tells the real story.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…Robust financialsPolymetal International’s financials have been on a rising curve from even before the crash. In other words, we’re looking at a company that can thrive even when it doesn’t have the broader environment firmly in its favour. Its revenues have been rising steadily. In 2019, revenues rose by 19% compared to 2018. Earnings have been on the rise too. In fact, for 2018 and 2019, they actually came in higher than the consensus estimate compiled by Financial Times.Further, forecasts for both 2020 and 2021 are bullish on both parameters. It’s worth highlighting that forecasts are always subject to change. But research analysts have been fairly accurate with Polymetal, which gives me confidence.POLY generates passive incomeIt’s not surprising that with robust financial health in place, this FTSE 100 share doubled its dividends in its last update. Its dividend yield is 3.7%. This isn’t a bad yield, I think. In a year when many stocks’ dividend yields went from the top-of-the-heap to zero, dividend stability alone is reason for me to consider buying the stock. Moreover, not only has POLY paid dividends through 2020, it’s expected to continue generating passive income for investors this year as well. A cheap UK shareDespite this, the stock has a price-to-earnings ratio of 11.2 times. This is way lower than that of the other big precious metal miners. Consider Fresnillo, which has a ratio of 40 times or Antofagasta, which has an even higher earnings ratio of 44 times. As a long-time investor, I think it’s one to consider, even if in the short-term there are drops, like right now. Since the stock market rally started, its share price has broadly fallen as the return of investor confidence has moved investors towards riskier assets.In fact, if I thought to buy the stock solely because of the gold price rally, then I’d be better off avoiding it. But as I was saying above, there’s more to it than just a gold price rally.Considering the risksIt is, of course, always possible that the overall environment improves so dramatically that precious metals’ prices plunge. This in turn could impact Polymetal’s performance. But, I think, the probability for this is quite low. This is especially so because the world is still in a funk. The new coronavirus variants are the biggest threats for 2021, in my view. Not only are they more infectious, there’s a chance that vaccines may not be as effective on them. The takeawayOn balance, the odds are in favour of the miner in my view. I already bought shares in Polymetal International, and am contemplating increasing my holdings while its price is still down.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Manika Premsingh owns shares of Polymetal International.

Landmark exhibition examines Ocoee Massacre of 1920, ignited after a black…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Ocoee Massacre was ignited on Election Day of 1920, when Moses Norman, a Black citizen, attempted to vote in Ocoee and was turned away. After a white mob came to the home of his friend, July Perry, in search of Norman, gunshots erupted. An unknown number of people were killed, including Perry, who was lynched in Orlando in the early hours of the next day. Eventually, the Black population of Ocoee fled, never to return. In telling the story, History Center staff have relied extensively on original research into primary sources and oral histories.Yesterday, This Was Home explores not only this horrific event in Central Florida’s past but also other historical and recent incidents of racism, hatred and terror. One of the exhibition’s recurring themes is the oppression of the Black community and their battle to rise above it, from enslavement, to the impact of the Ocoee Massacre, to the Black Lives Matter movement today.History Center staff have also designed Yesterday, This Was Home to encourage reflection on a century of social transformation, the power of perspective, and the importance of exercising the right to vote. Multiple interactives about voting, videos and digital maps enhance the visitor experience.To follow social distancing, the History Center has implemented new timed ticketing procedures for the special exhibition Yesterday, This Was Home: The Ocoee Massacre of 1920.

De Wet Barry red card shoulder hit on Matthew Tait

first_imgSaturday Apr 5, 2008 De Wet Barry red card shoulder hit on Matthew Tait When Newcastle met Harlequins at the Stoop last weekend in a tight and gloomy encounter, little did we know that one of the most talked about hits of the season was about to occur. The incident in question is De Wet Barry’s late and hard shoulder on Matthew Tait. The referee gave an instant red, judging that there was intent and the tackle was dangerous. After a disciplinary hearing however, Barry has since been found not guilty and will be free to to play with immediate effect, despite the majority of pundits expecting to see a lengthy suspension. Barry has apologised to Tait for the collision, which possibly looked worse than the intent was. He is a far larger man, so any type of collision between the two would end up with Tait coming off second best. An emotive incident for many though, so it wouldn’t surprise if there are a lot of unhappy Newcastle fans out there.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Rugby World Cup Daily – Retirements, resignations, injury, and Semis

first_imgMonday Oct 10, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Retirements, resignations, injury, and Semis The top three sides from the 2007 Rugby World Cup joined Ireland in departing New Zealand following quarter final losses this past weekend. Rugby World Cup Daily brings all the news on retirements, resignations, injuries, and semi final previews. Veteran All Black fullback Mils Muliaiana has bowed out international rugby, and the tournament, following a shoudler injury he suffered during his 100th match, played against Argentina. In an emotional press conference Mils spoke of having to come to terms with the rollercoaster ride that is professional rugby.“I’m particularly proud to be an All Black, but it’s a little bit sad bccause I know I’m not going to be back. But I’ve met some amazing people. I’m proud to be a Kiwi,” he said.Colin Slade is also out injured following a torn abductor, which also took place during the 33-10 quarter final win. Aaron Cruden, who was impressive when coming on as replacement, looks likely to take over. The All Blacks do have the option of shifting Piri Weepu to number ten, while Bath bound Stephen Donald joins the squad as cover.Elsewhere, South Africa’s controversial coach hinted at stepping down as coach, but contrary to what is stated in this video, he hasn’t officially resigned yet. “I never said I resigned. I said I was unsure about my future” De Villiers said earlier today.Victor Matfield and John Smit are officially retiring from international rugby though.  RWC Daily also reports on the strange coincidence that the final four sides left in the world cup are the same four that contested the first ever tournament back in 1987, also in New Zealand. There’s a look back at those games, Andrew Mehrtens takes on a robot, and we go inside the Wales camp.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Champion idea for workplace skills

first_imgChampion idea for workplace skillsOn 1 Jan 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. An attempt to boost work-based training and skills levels has been launchedby the DfES and NTO National Council. The Employer Champions Group met for the first time last month. It willadvise Government, the Learning and Skills Council and the emerging SectorSkills Development Agency on how to promote NVQs and the national occupationalstandards on which they are based. Senior employers put forward by the NTOnetwork and champions nominated by the CBI and TUC make up the group. It ischaired by Hugh Try CBE, deputy chairman of Galliford Try, chairman of the CITBand member of the LSC’s Adult Committee. “There’s not enough knowledge and use of national occupationalstandards and the qualifications leading from them,” said Try. “If wecould only make a wider group of employers aware of their existence andpotential, it would help to raise productivity and competitiveness.” According to Try, there is no shortage of champions who are enthusiasticabout national occupational standards. The aim is to reach the uninformed.”There’s a real head of steam and enthusiasm among people who are in theknow. The problem is extending that to others,” he said. “It’s a matter of putting together a convincing case – with realindustry situations – to get through to employers. This is a job of sufficientimportance that the DfES has agreed it will continue under the new sectorskills arrangements.” Bert Clough, senior training adviser at the TUC, hopes the work of the groupwill help boost the number of training programmes which are based on recognisedoccupational standards leading to NVQs. “We’re particularly interested inincreasing the number of people going through to NVQ level 2 – that’s where theproblem is. “About a third of the workforce are in jobs which have requiredcompetences at that level, but the vast majority have no qualifications whichattest their skills and competence. This limits individuals’ career paths andreduces labour mobility.” Clough said the time is right for an employer champions group. Its formationcoincides with proposals in the Chancellor’s pre-budget report for employer taxcredits to support training to level 2, and comes ahead of tighter regulationsexpected in some areas of employment which will require qualification to level2 as a minimum. “The likelihood of tax incentives and regulation makes the job mucheasier,” said Clough. “Awareness of standards is of nationalimportance. If employers train not to national occupational standards but tomeet their own narrow needs, there will be a lack of transferable skills, moreskills gaps and skills shortages.” By Elaine Essery Comments are closed.
