2 UK growth stocks to buy in March

first_img2 UK growth stocks to buy in March Many growth stocks have experienced pullbacks in recent weeks. Investors are concerned that interest rates could rise and this has impacted sentiment towards higher-growth companies.Personally, I see this share price weakness as a buying opportunity. Yes, growth stocks could continue to be volatile in the short term. However, in the long run, the best growth stocks are likely to deliver strong returns for investors.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…Here, I’m going to highlight two UK growth stocks I’d buy for my own portfolio today. In my view, both have significant long-term potential.A play on the 5G revolution One growth stock that I think has enormous potential is Calnex Solutions (LSE: CLX). It’s an under-the-radar UK technology company that specialises in testing and measurement services for telecommunication (5G) networks.The reason I’m bullish here is that Calnex is very well placed to benefit from emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles and ‘smart cities’ technology. These kinds of new technologies require mobile networks to be rapidly expanded. As a provider of network testing services, Calnex appears to be in a great position to capitalise. Calnex recently posted a very encouraging trading update. The company said that the strong levels of customer spend experienced in the first half of the financial year (ending 31 March) continued into the second half of FY21. As a result of this continued strong performance, it said that revenues and profits for FY21 are expected to be ahead of market expectations.There are some risks to the investment case. One is that around 85% of the company’s orders are made in US dollars. So, a weaker dollar could hurt profitability. This appears to have hit the share price recently. There’s also some valuation risk. Currently, the P/E ratio is about 29.Overall, however, I think the long-term risk/reward proposition here is attractive. I’d buy this growth stock today.A FTSE 100 growth stockAnother growth stock I’d buy right now is Rightmove (LSE: RMV). It operates the largest property website in the UK. Its website, rightmove.co.uk, was the 14th most popular website in the UK last year. Rightmove has been impacted by Covid-19. Full-year results, posted on Friday, showed a 29% fall in revenue and a 36% drop in earnings per share for 2020.I expect the company’s financial performance to pick up as the UK reopens in the months ahead, however. This year, City analysts expect revenue growth of 43% along with a 60% rise in earnings per share. If Rightmove can achieve this kind of growth (forecasts are not always accurate), its share price should rise.There are risks to consider here, of course. While Rightmove has a large market share currently, it does face competition from rivals such as On The Market and Zoopla. A high P/E ratio of 29 also adds some valuation risk.All things considered, however, I see a lot of appeal in this growth stock. Rightmove is a high-quality company and I think recent share price weakness has provided an attractive buying opportunity.

Ireland 10 Wales 22 – The Verdict

first_imgPat on back: Shane Williams consoles Jamie Heaslip2. POOR HANDS Ireland’s back-line dropped too much ball and were unable to string a good sequence of passes together, stifling Ireland’s attack and often enabling Wales to gain possession. Their nine handling errors to Wales’ three really cost Ireland.3. KICKING SMARTBoth teams opted for the high ball on several occasions – Wales’ first one being caught by Jamie Robets and setting up the opening try for Shane Williams. As well as the up-and-under, however, Rhys Priestland kicked the corners well and kept Ireland pinned back, allowing Wales to close out the win.4. DIRECT APPROACHJamie Roberts and Jonathan Davies ran straight at the Irish midfield and consistently got Wales over the gain-line, putting them on the front foot and allowing them to get their dangerous wide men involved.Top finish: Mike Phillips flies over the line for a key Wales try5. DEFENCE, DEFENCE, DEFENCE LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Red chums: Wales celebrate their quarter-final victory over IrelandBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features Editor in WellingtonALL WEEK people in Wellington have been talking about how tight this quarter-final would be, how it was a 50-50 match, and that’s exactly how it turned out.The scoreline might show Wales as the dominant side but it was far from a one-sided encounter. Ireland put pressure on the men in red, particularly in the first half, but Wales were undoubtedly the better side with the better game plan and that saw them home.THE KEY REASONS BEHIND WALES WIN1. BACK-ROW DOMINANCESean O’Brien’s ability as a ball-carrier has been a standout factor of this World Cup, but Wales closed him down incredibly well, often putting two defenders on him. He was unable to get up his usual head of steam and that took the momentum from Ireland’s game and they had no Plan B to get over the gain-line. Ireland had their chances to score and had long periods camped on the Welsh line, but the men in red held firm and didn’t allow them to cross the line. Shane Williams even held Sean O’Brien up over the line such was the team’s commitment, and they focused on taking players out around the legs so that they couldn’t offload as easily while Ireland’s choke tackle, such a success in previous games, didn’t reap its usual rewards.So Wales are through to their first semi-final in 24 years – have they got the game to go all the way to the final?last_img read more

RBS 6 Nations: Key Lions battles – Round 1

first_imgBAGSHOT, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 15: Prop Dan Cole looks on during the England training session at Pennyhill Park on November 15, 2012 in Bagshot, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Visser is strong and tall, with a frightening drive of the legs through a tackle. Ashton has a hunter-gatherer instinct stronger than Neanderthal Man. Both will ask questions of each others defences, but both are confident and – and dare we say it – selfish enough to attack the other at every given opportunity.The forwards’ tussling will decide the shape of the game but perhaps for a fleeting moment, when either man gets the ball, the crowd will rise to their feet. Perhaps Gatland included. These two are both dripping with elegance and class. Halfpenny has been one of the European game’s constants so far this season, with his ability to kick from the tee complementing his smooth running, line-breaks, and bravery in defence, which saw him helped from the field twice in the last 12 months, after making last-ditch tackles.Airborne, Kearney is almost baletic when taking the high-ball, but  he has a rougher edge and is famed for his rapier-like line-breaks. Will the elegance of Kearney trump the guile of Halfpenny? We shall soon find out.Dan Cole v Ryan GrantReady for a battle: Dan Cole will have to best in-form GrantAlthough more fancied than the Queen-in-waiting’s sister, Dan Cole has to prove his credential this Six Nations if he is to bat back away competition for the Lions’ No 3 jersey, from 2009’s incumbent Adam Jones. This means he has to scrummage with eye-watering force this Saturday.He comes up against Ryan Grant on the Twickenham turf. Grant has quickly risen to prominence for Scotland and although few in Europe know who he is at present, the loose head is now considered a sure starter and team leader by the Scottish management.This is not a straightforward ask for either man at the set piece. Both are workaholics in the loose and both post impressive tackling and scavenging statistics, but it is after that, at the set-piece, that they come under most scrutiny. This will be an intense examination.Chris Ashton v Tim VisserThe Ash Splash versus the Flying Dutchman, it sounds like the kind of movie you catch on the Sci-Fi Channel at 3:00am, but the England right-wing meeting the Scots’ left-wing at pace will be a fascinating battle of wills. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Getting to grips: Lion O’Driscoll grabs an ankle while Jamie Heaslip wraps up his opposite man, Toby FaletauBy Alan DymockWHEN SATURDAY comes the Six Nations will throw up an interesting anomaly. In one day we will get to see several fit and firing candidates for the British and Irish Lions tour, facing off, with the gloves off.It could be argued that a strong performance this weekend could propel a player to the forefront of Warren Gatland’s mind, like an Iranian astro-monkey fired into the stratosphere.Win a Six Nations individual match up, and one of these players could be that lucky cosmonaut.Worth a punt: Leigh HalfpennyToby Faletau v Jamie HeaslipThe Welshman at the back of the scrum will collide with many people’s Lions captain elect, Jamie Heaslip, this Saturday.Faletau has been digging and grinding with the Newport Gwent Dragons, turning in brave performances against Welsh rivals and nobly hustling for the sake of his struggling province. Now he gets a run on a lush paddock, with thoroughbred support and a baying crowd at his back.This clash is one fraught with uncertainties. Faletau can skittle men over with ease and gallop like a thoroughbred, but it could be Heaslip’s all-round, classy game could catch Gatland’s discerning eye.Often these match-ups come down to who stands out more, rather than who is doing the dirty business. Opening day at the Millennium Stadium is a place you want to stand out.Leigh Halfpenny v Rob Kearneylast_img read more

Six Nations England v Scotland Preview

first_img Roaring comeback: Scotland celebrate a try at Twickenham, 2019 (Getty Images) Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The latest issue of Rugby World magazine – a Six Nations special – is in shops now. But it is the up-front battle that will come into keen focus for Scotland. In the absence of Stuart McInally and Fraser Brown, George Turner gets the spot in the hooker position and Matt Fagerson is in at No 8. Off the bench, can Gary Graham and returning Richie Gray offer some oomph?Jamie Ritchie and Hamish Watson will always be nightmares at the breakdown. But will streetsmarts beat England’s undeniable might?What have the coaches said?England coach Eddie Jones said: “You listen to the Scottish and how much it means to them: it’s their biggest game of the year, their most important game, they are playing for trophies.“That’s a huge expectation for them and maybe, with 15 minutes to go in the game, the expectation is going to get pretty heavy for them.”Scotland boss Gregor Townsend said: “It’s always a pleasure to welcome a new player into our squad and we are looking forward to Cam Redpath winning his first cap on Saturday. We have been really impressed with Cam’s contributions in the time he has been with us in camp.” For Scotland, Cameron Redpath is thrown straight in. Son of former Scotland captain Bryan, he forms a centre partnership with Chris Harris. There are weapons all around too, with Russell hoping to orchestrate, and Duhan van der Merwe and skipper Stuart Hogg in the back three.Sean Maitland also starts on the wing, possibly to offer an defensive and kick-fielding safety net. All the teams news, battle areas and TV details you need for the Calcutta Cup clash at Twickenhamcenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Any interesting statistics?This rivalry goes back 150 years.It has been 38 years since Scotland have won at Twickenham.Eddie Jones was 23 when Scotland last won at Twickenham.After the birth of Cameron, Bryan Redpath played England three times… And lost them all.The odds of a draw here in 39/1.Egland have beaten Scotland 76 times in their history.

It is live on ITV in the UK and Virgin Media One in Ireland. Commentary will also be live on BBC Radio 5 live and RTE.Andrew Brace of Ireland will oversee the Calcutta Cup clash. He will be assisted by Mathieu Raynal and Pascale Gauzere (France) and Federico Anselmi (Argentina), with James Leckie (Australia) as TMO.What are the line-ups?England: Elliot Daly; Anthony Watson, Henry Slade, Ollie Lawrence, Jonny May; Owen Farrell (captain), Ben Youngs; Ellis Genge, Jamie George, Will Stuart, Maro Itoje, Jonny Hill, Mark Wilson, Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola.Replacements: Luke Cowan-Dickie, Beno Obano, Harry Williams, Courtney Lawes, Ben Earl, Dan Robson, George Ford, Max Malins.Scotland: Stuart Hogg (captain); Sean Maitland, Chris Harris, Cameron Redpath, Duhan van der Merwe; Finn Russell, Ali Price; Rory Sutherland, George Turner, Zander Fagerson, Scott Cummings, Jonny Gray, Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson, Matt Fagerson.Replacements: David Cherry, Oli Kebble, WP Nel, Richie Gray, Gary Graham, Scott Steele, Jaco van der Walt, Huw Jones. Six Nations England v Scotland PreviewOn 5 March 1983, Billie Jean by Michael Jackson crested at the top of the UK single charts. On the same day, Scotland rugby were ‘the one’ – beating England at Twickenham, 22-12.That was the last time the Scots triumphed in London. An era when hits were played on a Walkman, a try was worth four points, double denim was cool, and England finished rock bottom of the Five Nations table. Today some things are very different; some things same-same.With rugby in 2021, headbands are back in, but crowds are not. So let’s cling to what we are safe in knowing.Related: Tales of the Calcutta CupEngland are reigning Six Nations champions. They are the holders of the Calcutta Cup, having won a soggy and stodgy affair in Edinburgh last time out, and are a menacing force when they get going. They have a slew of injuries to recognised stars, particularly in the pack, but still have plenty of firepower.Finn Russell returns to Twickenham – the man credited with masterminding that crazy comeback in the 38-38 draw in 2019. Centres Cameron Redpath and Ollie Lawrence are friends from when they were England U20 team-mates, but now face off in Six Nations debuts. This is also the 150th anniversary of this fixture, so to mark the occasion, Scotland will have the corresponding name from the 1871 team embroidered on the players’ shirts. England will wear their own retro shirts. That first-ever match between these rivals ended in a draw. The last match between these two at Twickenham was a draw, too. Neither team will want that result, but let’s hope it has all the same excitement – and not a downbeat repeat of England’s sodden win at Murrayfield last year.What’s the big team news?Powerpack Lawrence made his England debut in the autumn, but gets his first Six Nations start. The move to pair him in the centres with Henry Slade is seen as a lovely balancing act, with Owen Farrell in the ten shirt and George Ford on the bench. That midfield grouping is an exciting one.England have injuries and absences to contend with in the pack, with Mako Vunipola hurt, Kyle Sinckler suspended, Joe Marler opting out,  and Sam Underhill and Joe Launchbury also injured. So Ellis Genge and Will Stuart start, with Beno Obano in line for a debut off the bench. Jonny Hill partners Maro Itoje in the boilerhouse and Mark Wilson starts in the back-row – Courtney Lawes is a good back-five option off the bench. And there is plenty of excitement about Max Malins entering the fray.last_img read more

Comments from the frontlines of Baltimore

first_imgThe following edited comments were posted on Facebook by Baltimore activist and Workers World Party member Lee Patterson.Today: The real enemies are the killer cops and the capitalist state, not starving people in scalding poverty.***Calling impoverished, hungry, disenfranchised, undervalued people “looters” is an atrocious slur by the media to divide our class in a time of rebellion. The true looters are the gambling industry, Michael Beatty [of Beatty Development Group], [H&S Bakery magnate John] Paterakis, RG Steel [Corp.] as well as [Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake]. We can’t let the neoliberal crowd dictate the narrative on our oppression. Not one demand has come from them to STOP KILLER COPS! The violence is still coming from the cops as we are told to “respect” the “rule of law.” Hell, Nat Turner burned down his own plantation. Fuck this one and the police!***Some poor and working people need to be made aware of what class they belong to. Cops are the protectors of the capitalists and they enforce the rule of capital and the rich. Cops are not the protectors of freedom and justice for poor and working people. They are the bullies who oppress the community.***April 29: The capitalists are using the mother from Baltimore who punished her child for “participating in the riots” as a figure to control the narrative in favor of the businesses and the police, who think that windowpanes and capitalist products matter — not Black lives.***And don’t forget the burning down of a Black Philadelphia neighborhood in 1985 by the police against MOVE.***Stop the “300 Men March” puppets from organizing the people against themselves. Rallying people to be against “looters” is an attempt to foster disunity against the capitalist occupiers in order to help the capitalists win, and so poverty and suffering unabated can continue.***Capitalism is being allowed to dictate the narrative on MSM [mainstream media]. Insured windows matter and not Black lives.***It’s the New Rising Sun under another day of fascist war and imperialist occupation of Baltimore. Fists up! Fight back!***April 28: Right now, we are emphasizing solidarity with the 345 prisoners in central booking. Holding demos outside of the jail. We were threatened with arrest yesterday as we were demonstrating and told to “cross the street” to get us out of the view of prisoners. Going back to Ground Zero. But also organizing for Friday and Saturday. This Friday the decision in the Freddie Grey case may be decided. Get ready for an explosion.***If property damage is more upsetting to you than institutionalized racism, your moral compass needs a realignment.***SLAVE MENTALITY. “Cleaning up” for the city. How much is the city paying you to clean up businesses? These are some of the same folks, doing the “clean-up,” who called hungry, impoverished people “thugs.” They are doing the city sanitation workers’ jobs for free.***Stephanie Crawling-Snakes, the worst mayor ever. 21st century Marie Antoinette. Mayor of gentrification and racist complicity.***Yes, fuck capitalist media, that demonizes youth and the oppressed and cheerleads the despots, rulers and their fascist police force. Fuck the police, National Guard and the racist AmeriKKKan capitalist system.***It’s not “looting” that is happening. It is the liberation of goods for the human needs of the people. People are fighting back against the war on the poor. It is the end of the month, when people are at their poorest and are forced to go to food pantries and churches for help as food stamps and rent subsidies have been cut. Baltimore is a Third World country, where decayed abandoned housing roofs are falling inwards and trees grow through the windows while the glitter of Harbor East and Johns Hopkins gentrification rises in the sunshine. The class distinctions and economic apartheid are becoming so clear to the most oppressed. The smoke of pre-revolutionary consciousness is in the air, and we communists must take full advantage to further raise the consciousness of our class towards the direction of socialism.***The police propagated the rumors and lies about Crips and Bloods coming to “attack” the police, and the rebellion was provoked by the police as well as by extreme poverty and police bullying. The ruling class media keep portraying the youth as “thugs” while completely ignoring police killings and poverty. People are becoming more aware of class and their oppression, and now is the time for us comrades to assist the people in their growth in class awareness. The demonizing of the youth by the capitalist media is to promote divisions between working-class people. … The rebellion makes sense. We have to start to guide the peoples in a revolutionary direction. Freddie Grey was the straw that broke the camel’s back, and the potential match stroke towards revolution.***It was exhilarating yesterday, myself and comrades Colleen and Lamont picking up our “Justice 4 Freddie Grey” placards and going out to show solidarity with the community. On my way to the office on the bus yesterday, it was an adrenalin rush to hear ordinary working-class people talking about police murder and poverty. I gave high-fives to people getting on the buses, as they were all made fare-free. Drivers were saying, “Never mind your passes or your fare. Just get on, hurry-up.” As I was on the way, people were saying that they were tired of low wages and budget cuts and that the system, police and and the politicians are responsible for the rebellion in the streets and that the poverty and violence of the system finally exploded.When I got to the office and went out with my comrades, we went out into the streets and as we were walking out to Penn-North [a Baltimore neighborhood], people saw our signs and asked for them, gave us fists up and shouted solidarity. People were excited.We walked into the area to see riot police in a war posture intimidation line. They beat their nightsticks into their shields as they shouted “MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!,” closing in on the people as the CVS smoked and burned. Then came the smoke bombs and we comrades stayed together as people charged the police back, shouting, “FASCISTS!” But what was really inspiring was to see people liberating the stores and supermarkets for toilet paper, meats, food, diapers. … This rebellion was more than about Freddie. It was about water cutoffs, poverty and police murder and systemic oppression, as well as blue-on-Black violence.***We don’t collaborate with the police or state or have any persons associated with the capitalist state leading the people’s marches.***With all of the calls to “stop protesting,” who’s calling for the cops to STOP KILLING BLACK PEOPLE?***To blame “outside agitators” is to attack the nationwide solidarity in the struggle to say “Black Lives Matter” and fight against police murder.***Nothing was said about the provocations from white baseball fans towards protesters, who were called the N-word, or towards the white protesters in solidarity with the struggle being called “N-lovers.”***The anger of Black people against capitalism exploded in rebellion last night. The pain of homelessness, joblessness, miserable poverty and total violence against human needs came back as payback against the ruling class. “Fuck that, fuck you and fuck CNN” was what the people told the capitalist media, that time after time lied about the reality of their existence.The expressions demonizing the rebellion are based on white privilege. A window pane busted in a department store can be replaced. But the lives of Freddie Grey, Tyrone West, Anthony Anderson as well as Preston Barnes, Simmont Thomas and others could not be replaced. Racist denials of job opportunities, prison records, as well as homelessness exploded into a rebellion against the capitalist system in Baltimore, and are about to explode nationwide.People are upset about the militarization of the cops all over the U.S., a violent provocation of war from the capitalist class. The violence doesn’t come from “outside protesters” but from the capitalist class itself. People no longer are “comfortable” with their oppression and are fighting back. It’s RIGHT to rebel! Fuck the police and the capitalist system!The violence of cutbacks against the poor, water being turned off, record homelessness and record poverty took its toll on the people and it resulted in destruction and an explosion in anger of the oppressed. We don’t want to “replace” capitalist politicians. We want to destroy capitalism, the whole system and its politician crooks.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Authorities arrest foreign TV journalists covering protest

first_img News June 4, 2021 Find out more AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia News RSF_en April 18, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities arrest foreign TV journalists covering protest RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan April 9, 2021 Find out more to go further Organisation June 8, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Photo : Turan AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts News Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh News Follow the news on Azerbaijan “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Reporters Without Borders is appalled to learn that three Swedish TV journalists were arrested while preparing to cover an opposition demonstration in Baku on 17 April. The authorities have repeatedly violated the rights of Azerbaijani journalists since regular opposition demonstrations began last month, but now they are also targeting foreign reporters.My Rohwedder Street, Sharlotta Wikstrom and Charly Latravot, who work for Sweden’s First National TV, were arrested by security agents at around 4 p.m. in Sahil Square as they watched the start of a demonstration, and were taken to the immigration department, where they were accused of taking photos illegally.There are absolutely no grounds for their arrest as they had obtained accreditation from the foreign ministry. A colleague who was not arrested, Zolt Tsilkotsky, said they had not even taken any photos. Following the Swedish consulate’s intervention, the journalists were due to be deported this afternoon. My Rohwedder Street confirmed this to Reporters Without Borders.In an attempt to impose a complete news blackout on the unrest in Azerbaijan, the authorities are now even targeting foreign journalists with all the required permits. This latest media freedom violation in connection with the coverage of the opposition demonstrations is intolerable. It is disturbing to see that the arrests and beatings of journalist are becoming more and more frequent.Reporters Without Borders calls on the government not to turn journalists into scapegoats for the current wave of protests.The press freedom organization will closely follow activist and blogger Bakhtiyar Hajyiev’s trial, which is due to start tomorrow. He was arrested for relaying a call for an opposition demonstration to be held on 8 March.last_img read more
