My 2 top stocks I’d buy for the upcoming bull market

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The stock market has been weak over the past few months, possibly partly due to uncertainty surrounding the US election and further Covid-19 related lockdowns.However, this weakness has presented a good opportunity to buy stocks, in my opinion. I reckon a bull market is coming. It might be difficult to see with so much doom and gloom in the news, but times of uncertainty can be great times to pick up top stocks of leading companies at cheaper prices.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…There are many reasons for an upcoming bull market. Stock markets are forward-thinking and try to look six to nine months ahead. Next year, it’s possible that the world will be in a better place regarding Covid-19. Continued low interest rates, supportive government measures, and progress with vaccines could all be reasons to be positive for the stock market.Top stocks in all shapes and sizesOne of my favourite stocks to buy for the upcoming bull market is Luceco (LSE: LUCE). This mid-sized company is a manufacturer and distributor of innovative wiring accessories, LED lighting, and portable power products. It’s not as well known as the large high street names, but sometimes smaller, lesser-known companies can be strong picks.It recently released a better than expected trading update, highlighting strong demand from its online customers. Online sales were 25% higher than last year.Despite social distancing measures in some of its markets, Luceco experienced strong demand from Europe in the third quarter. Sales were likely boosted by postponed demand following the Covid-19 lockdown in the second quarter.  In addition, the gross margin was better than expected due to more efficient production. Expanded margins, higher growth, and well-controlled costs led to an operating profit 60% higher than last year. I’d say this is impressive. Luceco is fast becoming one of my top stocks to buy this year.In addition to decent growth numbers, it has some good financial metrics. With a return on capital of over 25% and a dividend yield of over 2%, I’d consider adding some shares to my Stocks and Shares ISA.Publisher reaching new heightsAnother stock I’d buy for an upcoming bull market is Reach (LSE: RCH). It was formerly known as Trinity Mirror and is a national and regional news publisher. There’s a big shift happening from physical newspapers to online media and Reach looks well-placed to capture this trend.This mid-sized UK publisher has over 40m unique monthly views online across over 50 websites. In the UK, it’s the fifth-largest online property after Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Amazon.With so much content, I think it looks like Reach should be able to capture more customer data and increase digital advertising. By doing so, I reckon it should be able to increase operating margins.It saw a strong recovery in the digital advertising market since the worst impacts of Covid-19 in April. Results for the first half of the year were “materially ahead of expectations”.Not only does Reach have growth potential, but it also looks incredibly cheap to me. It has a price-to-earnings ratio of just four times. In addition, it provides a dividend yield of 5%. This combination seems like a no-brainer to me and I’d consider adding it to my top stocks watchlist. Image source: Getty Images.

Six Nations: Scotland 27-22 Ireland

first_imgReason to be cheerful: Man of the Match Stuart Hogg Scotland won the opening game of the Six Nations for the first time since 2006, defeating Ireland in a game spent innovating in the first half and then digging in during the second.Before the match there was a sense of confidence in Scotland, a feeling absent for some years. That confidence came with a caveat – “It will be close,” the wisdom ran. Well that would end up proving to be correct, but perhaps few expected Scotland to pour it on as they did in the first half. Two Stuart Hogg fissures and a cheeky lineout move involving Alex Dunbar looked to catch Ireland cold.Ireland looked to have the bit between their teeth and the momentum behind them in the second half, with Sean O’Brien and Jamie Heaslip drawing more attention while the phases ticked over. They had a deserved first-half try for Keith Earls before the second half offered up robust, swing-of-the-game scores for Iain Henderson and Paddy Jackson. That put Ireland ahead for the first time. They had the ascendency in the scrum. Indeed, as they rolled on the air seemed to suck out of the stadium and a familiar feeling crept up.Yet Scotland kept burrowing. Their rearguard scrambling, willingness to meet the collisions and the boot of Greig Laidlaw saw them over the line.Beefy burst: Sean O’Brien carries hardWHAT’S HOT…Innovation – At the dying moments of the first half, it genuinely looked like Scotland were going to score their bonus point try. In the end they forced it and almost allowed Simon Zebo an intercept try. That man himself spun and wriggled. O’Brien picked from a ruck when there was no guard ahead and galloped up field. And Paddy Jackson’s brain shifted gears quick enough to wobble through the defence and score when they foolishly rushed up at him.Big defence – As he spoke to the press, Vern Cotter called out the team’s defence. He saw it as the nation’s best win of his reign, but at the bedrock of it was punchy tackling and the work-rate.First-ever bonus point – Ireland will be deeply disappointed in their first half, and in letting Scotland regain the lead far into the second. However, no matter how loose they felt they were, to grab three tries and keep in touch speaks of a team who can be dangerous even when being sloppy. Cotter reckons they will grow as a force. Schmidt will be putting the hammer down to make sure they are.Stuart Hogg – It is one helluva thing to live up to the hype. But while pure pace saw him score his first, to stand wide and dummy during a two-on-one to grab his second try was impressive. The bad news for you, mate, is pretty much everyone else has him in their Fantasy team!Old pals act: Vern Cotter and Joe SchmidtWHAT’S NOT…Timely penalties – While Scotland conceded two more penalties during this game, Ireland infringed at the death when they should have been seeing things out. It was at a point in time when caution should have been the watchword. Ireland Rob Kearney, Keith Earls (T Bowe 67), Garry Ringrose, Robbie Henshaw, Simon Zebo, Paddy Jackson, Conor Murray; Jack McGrath (C Healy 56), Rory Best (c), Tadhg Furlong (J Ryan 68), Iain Henderson (U Dillane 63), CJ Stander, Sean O’Brien (J van der Flier 65), Jamie Heaslip. Weakness in the win – Scotland do have one big area to work on: set-piece. Scrum was under real pressure (although the fact Zander Fagerson lasted the 80 will hearten Cotter). Lineout was erratic. They made up for it with turnovers at key moments and sterling defence, but that will take a lot of work.Wastefulness – Ireland in fact dominated on several fronts. More possession, more clean breaks, more defenders beaten, more offloads… They gave up turnovers, but they could have converted more chances. Especially when they looked to have the advantage. Could they have gone for the sticks more?Handshake: Sean Maitland and Richie Gray, plus Zander FagersonSTATISTICS213 – the number of tackles put in by Scotland – compared with Ireland’s 117.11 – the number of years since Scotland last won a Championship opener.7 – The number of defenders Rob Kearney beat.2 – Two penalties from Jamie Heaslip at the very death will sting for the No 8 who has been in incredible form of late.Scotland Stuart Hogg; Sean Maitland, Huw Jones (Mark Bennett 60), Alex Dunbar, Tommy Seymour; Finn Russell (D Weir 47), Greg Laidlaw (c); Allan Dell (G Reid 55), Fraser Brown (R Ford 4), Zander Fagerson, Richie Gray, Jonny Gray, Ryan Wilson,  Hamish Watson (J Barclay 49), Josh Strauss (T Swinson 65).Replacements: Simon Berghan, Ali PriceTries: Hogg 2, Dunbar.

Fitzpatrick blends experience with a passion for teachers

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply OCPS District 7 Candidate Feature – Matthew FitzpatrickMatthew Fitzpatrick is passionate about education. His experience as a teacher and administrator made him that way. Fitzpatrick is running for the Orange County Public School Board District 7 seat against incumbent Christine Moore, and challengers Isadora Dean and Laura Rounds. The district covers all of Apopka, and if Fitzpatrick is elected, he wants to bring that passion to the teachers and students of the district.Matthew Fitzpatrick“I started teaching to help students… then I went into administration to help teachers help their students,” he said. “Where I’m at right now if I am elected to the school board I can help schools, which is helping even more teachers help more students.”Fitzpatrick sees over-testing as the primary fault with education. He describes it in dire terms, and even has his own term for it.“I’ve been in education for 23 years and I’ve come to a place where I see so many things going on that are destructive to teachers – testing, teacher evaluations and the loss of Career Technical Education (CTE),” he said. “You have an education system that’s built around a test. It’s test-centric. It’s not that I’m against testing, but when you focus on a test so much, you have to give up so much around it, and what you give up is destructive.”Fitzpatrick believes resources are being shifted to improve test scores by taking away programs he thinks enhance a student’s overall educational experiences.“In order to get results you have to take away things, like CTE programs. One of the saddest days of my career was at Apopka High School when they dropped the Auto Tech and Culinary programs. To lose programs that were so good for so many kids – it’s damaging them.”He also sees teacher evaluations as potentially damaging to the profession, and detrimental to the classrooms; specifically the Marzano Evaluation System.“Right now we’re running teachers off. We have an evaluation system that micro-manages them. It’s a perfection-oriented system. The Marzano System has 86 elements that a teacher can be scored on. I’ve never seen something so destructive in terms of damaging a teacher’s morale. It’s driving great teachers off. Orange County is experiencing teacher shortages because of it. It’s driving great teachers into early retirement. Many new teachers just walk off the job because of what teaching has become… it’s not what they signed up for. New, young teachers are going back to grad school to find a career where they feel properly respected, appreciated, and compensated. We are losing a generation of teachers, right now, and I believe it is because of the Marzano system. The best thing a student can have is a great teacher. That’s what makes the difference. That’s what parents want too and if something is causing us to lose great teachers, then we have to re-think what we’re doing.”Fitzpatrick would prefer to focus on a student’s passions than institutional testing.“There is a movement called “genius hour” to give students time during the week to let them work on what they’re interested in. A teacher can work with them and help them in their areas of passion. And how much more does that make a kid want to go to school? There’s something very positive about a passion-driven education and allowing students to do something that they like doing.”And instead of teachers being evaluated by systems, he wants them to put down their ideas on paper.“Every teacher needs to write their own book and call it “what works”,” he said. “In this book the teacher would write down what is working for them. They would write down how they start the class, how they motivate students, how they get their attention, and how they get their students to think, for example. Administrators can use these books to better evaluate the teacher’s effectiveness in the classroom.”Fitzpatrick wants to help those teachers and administrators and he believes he has a blend of educational experience that will suit him well on the school board.“My career has prepared me for many of the challenges that schools face. I have experience working in a private school, middle school, high schools, at the district office over athletics, and now in career technical education at Orange Technical College. When I worked at the district office, I worked with every floor… from the 1st floor to the 9th floor. I am very familiar with how the district works behind the scenes. I’ve also worked at three different high schools in our district—Apopka, Boone, and Ocoee. I’ve worked with affluent schools, and Title-1 schools.”Fitzpatrick is a first-time candidate running in a crowded field against a well-funded two-term incumbent, but he remains undaunted in his attempt to win the District 7 seat.“I’ve got a new appreciation for politics and politicians, but I’m running on ideas. I put up a lot of writing on Facebook because I want people to know what I think. And I get politics, but we’re talking about 200,000 kids. We need the best people; it can’t be all about political dealings. I’m looking at people I feel are being oppressed – teachers. And I look at students who desperately need help in the future. And I look at all the things I bring to the table and I thought who better to do this?”Fitzpatrick speaks with a sense of urgency about Orange County schools, but there is also optimism mixed in.“We have completely upended the way we teach everything. We’ve turned education upside down to meet a need. And I don’t think that’s what we should have done. At some point we have to turn things around. I believe I’m the person who can make those turns.” TAGSMatthew FitzpatrickOCPS Board District 7 Previous articleJudge’s ruling supports “Opt Out” movementNext articleAnnouncing the final two winners of tickets to Disney on Ice Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

JP Nel suspended for stiffarm on Stefan Terblanche

first_imgWednesday May 20, 2009 JP Nel suspended for stiffarm on Stefan Terblanche The Bulls will be without center JP Nel for their crucial Super 14 Semi Final against the Crusaders at Loftus Versfeld this weekend. Nel suspended for four weeks for this stiff arm tackle on Sharks fullback Stefan Terblanche. Nel and the Bulls have decided to appeal against the ban, which will take place in the form of a conference phonecall at 23:00 tonight, South African time.The suspension leaves the Bulls in a slight injury pickle, as Nel was a key member of their backline and with Wynand Olivier still struggling with a hip injury, they might be a bit thin in that department against the might and experience of last years winners.Nel was represented by the same team that helped to clear Bakkies Botha of any wrong doing, but they werent as fortunate this time around, as he has been suspended up to and including, June 13th for his tackle that was deemed dangerous.He will effectively miss a maximum of two matches, the Semi and possibly the final, despite the judicial officer having said that he considered a longer sentence, but felt that missing those two big matches were punishment enough.Nels track record of similar type hits with that heavily padded forearm probably influenced the decision. Its not the first time weve seen him tackle like that. Just ask Gio Aplon and Rocky Elsom. Update 21-05-09: Nel’s appeal was rejected, so he will serve the suspension. Do you feel four weeks is fair punishment, or was it merely a poorly judged hit?

2014 Irish fundraising survey published

first_img  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The fourth annual survey of fundraising performance in Ireland was launched yesterday.The survey showed that fundraising income increased by 7% between 2011 and 2012. The figures are based on 2012 and therefore do not take account of the ‘top-up’ controversy in 2013.While fundraised income has increased overall, the majority of organisations (55%) experienced a decrease in fundraised income while a small number of organisations received substantial gifts. The total income generated from philanthropic sources amounted to €852 million in 2012.The estimated rate of charitable giving per capita in 2012 was €185, nearly two thirds the figure in the UK.It cost an average of 31 cents to raise every €1. Direct marketing, community fundraising and charitable trading were the most important methods of fundraising but also the most costly, according to the survey. However, the survey cautions that the cost figures were based on a small sample.State funding for charities, while declining by 2%, still represents 58% of income.Irish fundraising income 2014 by technique – source: 2into3.com Howard Lake | 30 September 2014 | News 2014 Irish fundraising survey published The analysis in the report, which is produced by consultancy 2into3, is based on the annual accounts of a representative sample of 872 not for profit organisations.

Trump will let Attorney General William Barr decide whether the report will be released to the public, according to The Associated Press. After two years of investigations, Trump cheered at the end results. “It’s a shame that our country has had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this,” he said.Norwegian cruise ship stranded in stormNorwegian officials opened an investigation into why a cruise ship set sail despite storm warnings, leading to an evacuation.The Viking Sky experienced engine trouble after setting sail for Stavanger in southern Norway. The ship was headed toward the middle of the ocean during a storm.479 passengers were rescued by helicopter when the cruise ship was stranded on the Norwegian coast, leaving more than 800 passengers stranded.

Peanut tales

first_img Published 3:00 am Wednesday, October 22, 2014 Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories Skip Peanut tales The Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge will present Eddie Bailey in “Dr. Carver’s Workshop” at 10 and 11 a.m. Saturday. Bailey’s portrayal of Carver is an event of the Peanut Butter Festival. There is no admission charge. Everyone is encouraged to visit Carver’s workshop and learn more about the man who discovered more than 300 uses for the peanut.MESSENGER PHOTO/JAINE TREADWELLEddie Bailey knows the story of how Dr. George Washington Carver asked the Good Lord why He made the universe and the Lord said that was too big of a question for him. So Carver asked the Lord why he made man and again, the Lord said the question was too big for him. Then, Carver asked why the Lord had made the peanut and the Lord said that was just the right size question for him.Carver, the Wizard of Tuskegee, went on to discover about 300 uses for the little peanut and, in the process, his work with the peanut revolutionized farming in the South.“The boll weevil had destroyed the cotton crop in the South,” said Bailey who will portray Carver at the Peanut Butter Festival in Brundidge on Saturday. “The farmers had planted one cotton crop after the other until they had depleted the soil. Dr. Carver convinced the farmers to plant peanuts because they would put nutrients back in the soil. As the farmers began to plant peanuts the soil improved and they began making more money with peanuts than they had with cotton.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Jaine Treadwell “He was very sickly and almost died with the whooping cough,” Bailey said.“But he was a very curious little boy and spent a lot of time in the woods. He loved plants and learned to identify all of them. And, he wanted an education so he could learn about everything. But, being black, he had a very difficult time finding schools he could attend. He taught himself to read so he was able to learn many of the things he wanted to know about.”Carver was extremely intelligent and applied to Highland University in Kansas.“The college accepted him but, when they realized he was black, they wouldn’t let him in,” Bailey said. “But he was accepted at Simpson College and was later offered a position at Tuskegee Institute where Dr. Booker T. Washington was the president. He had a small workshop and he spent most of his time working there, teaching his students and taking long walks in the woods. Bailey said he is honored to portray Carver at the Peanut Butter Festival because it gives him an opportunity to tell others about a man that is one of his heroes.“Most people think about peanuts when they think of Dr. Carver but he did so much more,” Bailey said. “He did almost as much with sweet potatoes as he did with peanuts. He was a very good artist and he was a good Christian man that thought more about others than he did about himself.”Bailey said Carver was the son of slaves and his mother was taken from him at a very young age. Email the author “He always had a flower the lapel of his coat and people said he talked to flowers. He didn’t care about money. He didn’t even cash many of his paychecks.“He wanted to learn and he kept on learning all his life. He was kind spoken and never wavered in his Christian faith. He is my hero.”Bailey invites everyone to visit Dr. Carver in his workshop at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library and learn more about the “Father of the Peanut.” Print Article This Video Will Soon Be Banned.
