Best UK shares: I’d double £1,000 by buying them after the stock market crash

first_img 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.

Manika Premsingh | Wednesday, 19th August, 2020 | More on: GYM Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images. JD Sports Fashion was the best performing FTSE 100 stock of 2019. It has also shown an impressive comeback since the stock market crash. Its share price is up almost 2.5 times from the lowest it touched. In other words, if I had invested £1,000 in the stock in 2019, it would have been one of the best UK shares to buy, irrespective of the stock market crash. I don’t think this is a coincidence.  Best UK shares are in growing marketsThe UK health and fitness industry is growing, and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. According to research from consultant Deloitte, the UK’s fitness market is the second largest in Europe, after Germany. It’s also growing at 4%+ rates. Much like JD Sports Fashion, other companies in the segment will benefit from the trend. We at the Motley Fool like long-term investments in quality companies, and this sector offers opportunities of exactly that kind, making them among the best UK shares to buy 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…Frasers Group is expandingOne example is Frasers Group, which used to be Sports Direct. Unlike JD, its share price hasn’t risen rapidly, but it has shown gains. Its financials don’t raise any red flags either. Its profit growth is inconsistent but it has remained profitable for a while now. I reckon its upcoming results will be weak, given the current Covid-19-driven circumstances, but that’s exactly the time to buy. I think some of the best UK shares to buy are those that are down because of circumstances beyond their control. That is, if they are likely to come out ahead over time, given their market prospects and performance. I think this is the case for FRAS. It has reportedly bid for DW Sports, which owns gyms and sports stores, and recently went into administration.The Gym Group is a small cap to considerAnother example of potentially one of the best UK shares to buy is The Gym Group. This small-cap stock operates 175 gyms across the UK. In the low-cost gym category, its market share is second only to PureGym. Much like Frasers Group, in the short-term its performance will be impacted by Covid-19. But I’m still bullish on it  for three reasons. One, it has managed to tide well over the lockdown by raising funds. Two, its revenue growth over time has been robust. In 2019 alone, its revenue grew by 23.6%. And three, its share price has bounced back after the market crash, indicating investor faith in GYM. The debt it has accumulated is a tad worrisome, especially since it is loss-making right now. But with gyms now open again, I think it can start the recovery process. I think it’s likely to be a long-term success story and one of the best UK shares to buy today for my Stocks and Shares ISA.  See all posts by Manika Premsinghcenter_img 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.

Burgess Carr, former All Africa Council leader, dies at 76

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA By ENS staff Posted May 14, 2012 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Ecumenical & Interreligious, May 19, 2012 at 10:39 pm Burgess Carr was such a blessing to St. Matthew’s, Snellville, when he chose our parish to be his church home during the last eight or ten years of his life. He was one of the most spiritual men I have ever known and also one of the most humble. Our entire parish loved him and his wife Francesca. Praise to God for his earthly life and his continued life now in heaven. Rector Bath, NC Rector Smithfield, NC People Featured Jobs & Calls Curate Diocese of Nebraska May 15, 2012 at 11:54 am What a fascinating man, “notorious” for his engagement in a call for a moratorium on Western missionaries to allow African churches to find their own way as the continent became independent of colonial control and the churches became independent of missionary society control. On the centenary of the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral, I heard him say that true ecumenical unity was found not in formal structural unification of denominations but instead in praxis. He was always challenging and perceptive. May his soul rest in peace.

Burgess Carr, a Liberian-born priest who in the late 1980s served as the Episcopal Church’s partnership officer for Africa and who for seven years in the 1970s headed the All Africa Council of Churches (AACC), died May 14 in his sleep, according to an announcement from St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Snellville, Georgia.  He was 76.“During his tenure as General Secretary of AACC, he brought a new energy to the work of the Anglican Church in Africa and made a few enemies, including Idi Amin. May his soul rest in peace,” said the Rev. Canon Petero Sabune, the church’s global partnerships officer for Africa, in an e-mail sent to church center staff May 14.In that same e-mail, Margaret Rose, the Episcopal Church’s deputy for ecumenical and interfaith collaboration, said: “Many here at the Church Center knew Burgess Carr when he was on staff here.  In addition to being one of my professors in Divinity School and the preacher at my ordination, he was an executive director of the All African Council of Churches, a great ecumenist and a negotiator of one of the first peace agreements in the Sudan.”Carr graduated in 1958 with a bachelor of science degree in agriculture from Cuttington College, in Suakoko, Bong County, Liberia, and earned a master of divinity degree from Harvard Divinity School in 1961. He was ordained a deacon in 1961 and a priest in 1962 in the Diocese of Liberia, which was a diocese in the Episcopal Church until 1980, when it became part of the Anglican Province of West Africa.Additionally, Carr served as the secretary for Africa with the World Council of Churches; Geneva, Switzerland, from 1967-1970. He was the executive director of Episcopal Migration Ministries from 1990-94; held various teaching appointments over the years at schools including Union Theological Seminary, Harvard Divinity School, Boston University, Episcopal Divinity School, and Berkeley Divinity School at Yale; and was a consultant to The World Bank, the United Nations Development Programme, and the Economic Commission for Africa. In 1972 he served as moderator on the Addis Ababa Agreement on Southern Sudan, which ended 17 years of civil war in Southern Sudan.Carr moved to Georgia sometime in the 2000s and served as vicar of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Decatur, Georgia, for three years.  Carr and his wife, Francesca, had five children.The funeral will be at 10 a.m. Friday, June 1, at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta. Bishop of Atlanta J. Neil Alexander will preside. May 15, 2012 at 4:25 pm Burgess Carr was a man of deep spirituality that manifests in some in the African Christian experience. To be in his presence meant laughter, and then is his quiet way he would remind us of the roots of our faith: the journey through wilderness, the province of a loving God, the hope in our future healing. He was a gentle giant of our faith.

Keeping Orange County’s Roads in Line

first_img Please enter your comment! From Orange CountyOrange County maintains nearly 2,800 lane miles of roads in unincorporated Orange County. Those roads all need to be kept in line with road reflectors and street markings to help keep drivers safe and moving.Orange County’s four-person in-house striping crew takes pride in their job of overseeing the laying out of crosswalks, stop bars and double yellow lines. Few know that the roads aren’t actually painted. The crew uses a high-tech material called thermoplastic, which is heated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and applied by a manually pushed machine called a handliner. It usually takes one to five minutes to dry depending on road and air temperature.“First we lay out the lines and then we use the handliner,” Orange County Senior Foreman Jamie Furbush said. “We complete more than 50 miles of thermo striping every year.”The thermoplastic is mixed with glass beads, which serve as tiny reflectors in the road. An additional safety and reflectivity structure that is positioned next to the double yellow lines is called a raised pavement marker.Furbush has been in the striping crew business for almost 25 years and has seen the technology evolve.“Thermoplastic can last longer than paint – it usually needs to be replaced every six to seven years, depending on road conditions,” Furbush said. “Although paint is much easier to remove and can be ground off without damaging the road, it only lasts for two to four years.”The crew recently obtained a $100,000 machine called a kettle, which is used to mix thermoplastic materials on site and helps make the job faster and more efficient.For any project over a mile, Orange County contracts with a vendor using part of its $1.4 million annual striping budget. More than 190 miles are striped by a contractor annually.Besides roads being striped as part of the resurfacing program, roads are on a seven-year-cycle system to be repainted. The crew also pinpoints roads that need refreshing throughout the County and citizens may call 311 to make suggestions.“Ultimately, we help keep our roads safe,” Furbush added. “There’s lots of careful planning that goes into making these Orange County markings.” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply TAGSOrange County Previous articleOrange County Head Start Program operates 19 centersNext articleVeterans can be your best employees Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Gov.

Tips for making winter training more appealing

first_imgTuesday Oct 15, 2013 Tips for making winter training more appealing When it’s cold, raining or snowing, the last thing you want to do is don your shorts and t-shirts and head out for a jog. The draw of the duvet is too much for some people, destroying their fitness regime, but this needn’t be the case. Follow these top tips to make keeping fit seem more appealing this winter:Keep warmThe cold is what puts most people off exercising in the winter. Even just getting ready for your training session is a chore: putting on layers upon layers of unwanted Christmas jumpers from yonder will leave you feeling less than motivated, and will leave you looking like a fool.There are other alternatives to these knitted monstrosities though, that will not only look better but will be more effective at keeping your warm. Base layers, like this from Activinstinct, are made from specially designed material that will work to regulate your temperature. Wear these and you will also look sleek and sporty, rather than like an extra from a low-budget Christmas movie.More energyAs you’re dragging yourself out of bed at 6am to hit the gym, you may be questioning the reliability of this next tip. However, making the effort to exercise will actually leave you feeling more alive. Once you’ve got the endorphins pumping, you will feel energised and ready to face the day.The winter blues get a lot of people down, but once you’ve started exercising in winter, you will become more inclined to do so. Gradually, you will think little of braving the cold and getting active.Move indoors where possibleWhen the weather turns really bad, you may feel like abandoning your training sessions and slobbing out on the sofa. However, why not simply move your activities inside?Granted, this doesn’t work with every sport, but if the streets are lined with a thick layer of snow, you could swap your jog for a treadmill session in the gym. Similarly, move your game of five-a-side to an indoor pitch. There are numerous options so there really is no excuse!You can find your local sports centre here. 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.

DNA links Navy classmate to 1984 cold case murder of 25-year-old Pamela Cahanes: Officialsc

first_imgSeminole County Sheriff’s Office(ORLANDO, Fla.) — DNA and genetic genealogy have linked a Navy man to the 1984 murder of his classmate, 25-year-old Pamela Cahanes, authorities announced Thursday.Two days after graduating from U.S. Navy basic training — which was held in the Orlando area at the time — Cahanes was found beaten and strangled to death, Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma told reporters Thursday.Cahanes’ mostly nude body was discovered the morning of Aug. 5, 1984, near a vacant home in unincorporated Sanford, Florida, Lemma said.Thomas Lewis Garner, who was Cahanes’ classmate at the Navy’s training center, was arrested Wednesday for her first-degree premeditated murder, sheriff’s office spokesman Bob Kealing told ABC News.The two were known to each other, Kealing said.The sheriff’s office said it’s unclear how long Garner, 59, served in the Navy. A Navy spokesman did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Though Lemma said DNA has definitively linked him to the scene, Garner, of Jacksonville, has denied involvement, according to the sheriff.Investigators used genetic genealogy to build a family tree that matched Garner to DNA found on Cahanes, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said.Genetic genealogy takes the DNA an unknown killer left behind at a crime scene and identifies the suspect through his or her family members, who voluntarily submit their DNA to genealogy databases. This allows police to create a much larger family tree than using DNA submissions to law enforcement databases, in which an exact match to the suspect is needed in most states, according to CeCe Moore, chief genetic genealogist with Parabon NanoLabs, which she says has worked on the majority of the cases, including Cahanes’.The first public arrest through genetic genealogy was the April 2018 identification of the suspected “Golden State Killer.” Since then, genetic genealogy has helped identify more than three dozen suspects in violent crimes, said Moore.Cahanes is survived by many siblings but her mother died before the arrest was made and “never had the opportunity to see this,” Lemma said.Officials at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) “never lost sight of the fact that the family of Recruit Pamela Cohanes needed to know as much as possible about what happened to her,” NCIS Special Agent in Charge Matthew Lascell said in a statement Thursday.“It’s gratifying to have been part of discovering the truth,” Lascell said.Garner is set to appear in court Friday, Kealing said. He has not entered a plea and is being held on no bond, Kealing said. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Staff slow to take up work-life options

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. UK employees are failing to take up work-life balance options, according to a new report.The study by the independent Institute for Employment Studies, Work-life Balance: Beyond the Rhetoric, says employers are offering increased options as they recognise the business benefits of the schemes, but employees have not embraced them.Sally Dench, IES Senior Research Fellow and author of the report, said she found a gap between employees’ demands and take-up of the options.She said: “Rights to time off and flexible working practices are rarely enough. A change in culture and attitudes within the organisation is necessary for the successful implementation of work-life balance practices.“If senior managers are serious about promoting work-life balance they need to be proactive. It rarely happens without positive leadership from above.”Weblink www.employment-studies.co.uk Previous Article Next Article Staff slow to take up work-life optionsOn 30 Apr 2002 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
