I think these 3 small-cap growth stocks are the real deal. But are they too expensive?

first_img See all posts by Paul Summers Image source: Getty Images. Bought at the right time and the right price, small-cap stocks can do wonders for your wealth.Today, I’m looking at three great examples, all of which report to the market next month. 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…Gaming for growthCambridge-based video games developer and publisher Frontier Developments (LSE: FDEV) releases interim results on 5 February. From a business perspective, I doubt those already holding have much to fear.Earlier this month, the company indicated that total revenue for the six months to the end of November would be £32m – a 28% rise on that achieved over the second half of the previous financial year. That said, it’s worth mentioning that this would be significantly less than the near-£65m achieved over the same period in 2018, highlighting the extent to which sales in this industry can fluctuate according to when games are released.Having “performed well” over the festive period (and based on the initial success of Planet Zoo – its fourth franchise), Frontier’s management now believes full-year sales will come in within analyst expectations of between £65m and £73m. Boasting a strong net cash position and rising returns on capital, this is the sort of company I’d usually get in line to buy. On an eye-watering forecast price-to-earnings ratio of 54, however, a lot of the good news looks firmly priced in.With shares up 40% in just six months, I’m inclined to wait and see if results day brings out the profit-takers.In a sweet spotAnother small-cap reporting next month (25 February) is chocolatier Hotel Chocolat (LSE: HOTC).Like Frontier, the AIM-listed firm enjoyed a sweet 2019, with its share price soaring almost 60%. Hotel is also generating great sales momentum, announcing last week that total group revenue over the 13 weeks and 26 weeks to 29 December had climbed 11% and 14% respectively. The company is also growing its presence, both in the UK (nine new stores were opened over the second half of 2019) and abroad (four sites in the US and five in Japan). It boasts over 1.1 million active members in its VIP-Me scheme and is even targeting the vegan market with its new Nutmilk chocolate – deemed an “immediate hit” by management. Talk of “modestly higher” costs “due to inefficiencies in the supply chain” may explain why the shares took a temporary dive last week but I think it’s more to do with the valuation – a very steep 44 times earnings.It’s a great business but I’m conscious that no stock is worth buying at any price, especially a high street retailer.Cleaning upA third small-cap showing great positive momentum of late is infection prevention and contamination control product manufacturer Tristel (LSE: TSTL).December’s AGM statement from the Snailwell-based business was brief but highly encouraging for those already holding.Thanks to contributions from recent acquisitions, management reported that pre-tax profit for the first half of the financial year would be “no less than £2.8m” (£2.4m was achieved over the same period in 2018).This, combined with news that its push for regulatory approval for its products in the US was “progressing well” has only served to send the shares higher.Like both Frontier and Hotel Chocolate, however, the valuation is looking frothy at 33 times forecast earnings. Having climbed 85% since November, I have my doubts about whether the stock can maintain its current momentum.Half-year numbers will be confirmed on 24 February.

first_imgNational Memorial Arboretum is most popular National Lottery funded venue in England The National Memorial Arboretum, the UK’s centre of remembrance, has been voted the favourite ‘National Treasure’ in England which has received National Lottery Funding over the last 20 years.The public vote, via Facebook, attracted over 66,000 votes in May 2014. The Eden Project in Cornwall came second, and The Beamish Museum in County Durham third. The public was asked to choose their favourite from a range of iconic venues, landmarks and facilities that have benefited from Lottery funding.The Arboretum, part of The Royal British Legion family of charities, has received more than £8 million of National Lottery funding. Containing over 300 memorials, including the Armed Forces Memorial, it welcomes some 300,000 visitors a year.Sarah Montgomery, managing director of the National Memorial Arboretum, said:“The National Lottery has played a significant role in our development and we’re now truly honoured that the public has chosen us as their favourite place.

Labor can shut down the war machine!

first_imgThe following statement was issued by the ­Labor Fraction of Workers World Party.On April 6, President Donald Trump ordered a blatant act of war against the Syrian people. He did it without a shred of evidence that the Syrian government was involved in an alleged poison gas attack that killed civilians.What advantage would Syria gain strategically by targeting noncombatants, when the Bashar al-Assad government has been winning the war against U.S.-backed terrorist groups — the Islamic State group (IS), al-Qaida, the Free Syrian Army and others? In fact, there is evidence that the gas attack was actually carried out by so-called rebels.The attack on Syria was followed by the bombing of Afghanistan, employing the most powerful non-nuclear bomb ever dropped in all of world history. A military assault on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea could be imminent.Working people, organized and unorganized, have no reason to support yet another war. In fact, the chatter in the workplace is that people are outraged that Trump has dragged us into what could be a major war — or wars. There will be mass suffering as a result of billions of dollars of cuts in human services carried out to shift money to the Pentagon war machine. The suffering of the Syrian people, including the nearly five million made refugees by this U.S.-sponsored war, will only worsen.Organized labor should be outraged! Yet its leaders, AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka and Change to Win President James Hoffa Jr., have said nothing. Silence is the voice of complicity. Their collusion with Trump — and with both Democrats and Republicans — when faced with Pentagon aggression is just their latest betrayal of our class interests as workers since the November election. These are the same leaders who sold out the heroic water defenders at Standing Rock and the migrant communities who are being rounded up, detained and deported en masse.Labor lieutenants of capitalism — a shameful traditionOn Feb. 25, 1967, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “the bombs in Vietnam explode at home.” (tinyurl.com/aertr2e)While this towering figure of the Civil Rights movement was risking his life by positioning himself against the Vietnam War, rare were the voices from the labor movement striking a similar chord. In its silence, organized labor was complicit in a criminal war of aggression against the people of Vietnam, funded by the poor, the workers and the oppressed people of the U.S.Fifty years have passed. Yet we see the leaders of the AFL-CIO and Change to Win continuing to act as cheerleaders for imperialist war. They know full well that the union movement has enough muscle to bring the war machine to a halt. Even the ten percent of the working class in unions have a lot of power. Power to stop the transport of goods by truck, rail and air. Power to shut down telecommunications and government. Power to shut down the military-industrial complex at the point of production.We believe in the old union maxim that “an injury to one is an injury to all.” This principle has no borders. When our human family in other countries is subjected to imperialist violence, carried out in our name, labor in the U.S. has no choice but to join the chorus of voices saying, “Hands off Syria, Afghanistan, Korea and the world!” This message must be heard around the world on May Day, International Workers Day, and beyond.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

He said he could supply any amount and various brands and boasted that he supplied most of the pubs in Limerick and that they had his mobile number.Three of the retail venues where the test purchasers bought cigarettes were butchers. They also purchased a pouch of tobacco from a fish and chip shop.The test purchasers said they found it very easy to buy illicit tobacco products in Limerick. Over three days there were 18 separate purchases involving 38 illicit tobacco products. This, they said, was “far in excess of what was achieved in Limerick during a previous project in 2013”.Commenting on the results of the survey, former Detective Chief Superintendent Kevin Donohue said the test purchases were conducted to gain an understanding of the level of the problem in Limerick and other parts of the country. The test purchasers found it was all too easy to purchase these illicit tobacco products in a range of outlets in Limerick.Another survey conducted by the tobacco industry in 2014 examined discarded cigarette packs and found that while a quarter (25.2 per cent) of cigarettes sold across the country was illegal, Limerick had the fifth highest incidence with almost a third (30.3 per cent) of discarded packs being illegal products.“These surveys confirm our concerns that the incidence of illegal tobacco products is increasing and it has become the ‘crime of choice’ for organised gangs, with its potential for huge profits,” said Mr Donohoe.

Even though she was assigned as male at birth, her self-identified gender identity is female.The petitioner changed her name from by executing an affidavit dated 31.10.2019 regarding her intent to change her name and gender in two newspaper publications in ‘Vijaya Karnataka’ dated 5.11.2019 and ‘Times of India’ dated 05.11.2019.The petitioner also obtained Aadhaar Card and Passport with her name given at birth and gender as female.However, her grievance was that the respondents refused to change the name and gender of the petitioner in SSLC and PUC marks cards and therefore the petitioner sought for a writ in the nature of mandamus directing The Department of Pre-University Education, Bengaluru and the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board, Bengaluru to issue a revised Pre-university certificate and to set-aside the order passed by respondent No.4-The Central Board of Secondary Education, Chennai and to issue revised CBSE marks card showing her name as the chose name and also for a writ of mandamus directing Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bengaluru and Father Muller Medical College, Mangalore to change the name and gender of the petitioner in MBBS Marks card as ‘Christina Lobo’ and her gender as female and issue revised marks card and educational records.Arguments put forthThe counsel for respondent No.3 appearing on behalf of Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board, raised a plea that under The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act, 2019, a transgender is required to make an application to the District Magistrate for issuance of a certificate of identity as a transgender person.Further, the learned counsel submitted that there is no provision in Examination Bye-laws of the Board to effect change in gender and name of the students and therefore, the order passed by the third respondent cannot be faulted with.The Counsel for the Petitioner emphasized that when the identity of the petitioner having been changed much prior to the Act coming into force, the procedure contemplated under the Act is not applicable to the petitioner and therefore in view of the directions issued by the Apex Court in NALSA’s case, the State Government, as well as all its instrumentalities, are required to grant recognition to the self-identified gender of the petitioner and therefore the respondents be directed to effect necessary changes in the records maintained in their respective offices relating to the petitioner.Court’s ObservationsThe Court observed that the Transgender persons’ right to decide their self-identity has been upheld by the Supreme Court of India in the celebrated case in National Legal Services Authority v. Union Of india And Others, (2014) 5 SCC 438.The petition was allowed and Respondent Nos.2 (State Of Karnataka Department Of Pre-University Education) and 3 (The Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board) were directed to issue revised pre-university certificate to the petitioner showing her name as her chosen name.Thus, the order dated 12.02.2020 passed by respondent No.4 (The Central Board Of Secondary Education) was set-aside.Further, respondent No.4 (The Central Board Of Secondary Education) was directed to issue revised CBSE marks card showing the name of the petitioner as  her chosen name and her gender as “female”.Likewise, respondent Nos.6 (Rajiv Gandhi University Of Health Sciences, Bengaluru) and 7 (Father Muller Medical College, Mangaluru) were directed to change the name and gender of the petitioner in MBBS records as her chosen name and her gender as “female” and issue revised marks card and the respondents shall maintain the educational records relating to the petitioner accordingly.Click Here to Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
