£2k to invest? I think these growth shares can double your money

first_img Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves After the recent stock market crash, many growth shares are now trading at attractive levels.As such, long-term investors who can look past the near-term uncertainty could benefit by buying these stocks for the long haul.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…Growth shares on offerThe Gym Group (LSE: GMY) used to be one of the market’s top growth shares. However, due to the coronavirus crisis, the business has had to shutter all its sites.As yet, we don’t know when the company will be allowed to resume trading. But management has acted quickly to reinforce the group’s balance sheet to help it to weather the storm.In the middle of April, the company raised £41m through a share placing to add to the £22m cash on hand at the end of March. This means it has £61m of cash to help see it through.That should be more than enough. The Gym Group is currently burning through £5m of cash a month. That suggests the business can keep the lights on for at least a year.The company’s low-cost subscription business model has proven popular in the past. It is one of the reasons why it used to be one of the market’s top growth shares. This will likely continue to be the case when the UK-wide lockdown is over.The stock is down 51% since the beginning of the year. This suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels.Indeed, a return to its pre-crisis levels would mean a gain of more than 100%. Therefore, now could be the perfect time for long-term investors to snap up a share.Internet securityThe coronavirus crisis has forced many businesses to adopt home-working. This is good news for companies such as Avast (LSE: AVST), which provides online security software and is one of the market’s top growth shares. The world is only becoming more connected. And, unfortunately, criminals are only becoming more sophisticated.Cybercrime is by far the fastest-growing type of crime in the world. This means companies like Avast are reporting explosive demand for their products.However, despite this tailwind, the stock has gone nowhere in 2020. The total return for investors so far this year is 0%.Revenue growth has far exceeded this return. According to the company’s latest trading update, revenue increased 6.5% in the first quarter of 2020 on an organic basis.This suggests that the market is substantially undervaluing Avast’s growth prospects. That is rare for a growth stock. Usually, growth shares command a premium valuation.Therefore, now could be a good time for investors to jump on the chance to buy this world-leading cybersecurity business. With $262m of cash on its balance sheet as well, Avast is committed to its dividend and has plenty of financial resources available to the group to pursue growth opportunities in the next few years.Over the past two years, Avast has doubled investors’ money. I see no reason why the firm cannot repeat this performance during the next three to five years as it capitalises on the rising demand for security software.

Rankings outcry after England emerge as top in northern hemisphere

first_imgTuesday Mar 30, 2021 Rankings outcry after England emerge as top in northern hemisphere World Rugby’s ranking system has come under fire this week as England moved to third in the world despite their dismal Guinness Six Nations.ADVERTISEMENTEddie Jones’ side started the Championship in second place in the world courtesy of a bright 2020 in terms of results, but slipped to fourth, behind third place France, after their loss to Ireland in round five.But Les Bleus’ loss to Scotland at the Stade de France last Friday meant England rebounded back to number three, while France were leapfrogged by Ireland. Fabien Galthié’s side therefore finished their Six Nations in fifth place, one place lower than they started, despite coming second.Only the Champions Wales and Ireland improved in their ranking from the beginning of the tournament, with the former moving from ninth to sixth and the latter moving from fifth to fourth.Meanwhile, Scotland slipped down a place from seventh to eighth, even though they earned their first victories at Twickenham and the Stade de France this Millenium.It is no surprise that the biggest area of contention after the latest standings were released is the position of England, who clearly revealed over the past two months that they are not the best side in the Northern Hemisphere as the rankings would suggest.Pre-Six Nations ➡️ Post-Six Nations pic.twitter.com/Lh9C6ZA9wi— World Rugby (@WorldRugby) March 29, 2021They instead are being saved by their 2020 and their victory over France, which was the only glimmer of hope provided throughout their campaign.ADVERTISEMENTThis is the most controversy the rankings have caused since 2019, where several teams enjoyed brief spells at the top of the rankings prior to the World Cup with the majority of them quite clearly not being the best teams.The rankings are usually a helpful gauge in seeing where the power lies in the global game, but this is an instance where they are out of kilter with reality.Was it determined by a Gavin Williamson algorithm?— andy nash (@cadmal) March 29, 2021Ffs have a word whoever picks the world rankings come down from the fairy cloud 😂— Mike (@prosser5652) March 29, 2021Really ? Not April fools yet ?? England were hopeless in 6 nations !!— dean (@WillsDeano) March 29, 2021Wow , just shows how pointless the rankings are— Richard (@blandford42) March 29, 2021RELATED VIEWING: ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 11 WEEKS AGO Jack Nowell defends Ellis Genge after difficult… 11 WEEKS AGO Lions tour likely to stay with original hosts… 11 WEEKS AGO Wales hooker responds to Galthié claims… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16

first_imgWhile there are some weed issues, Miller says, for the most part, things are better than they were last year. He also said encirca models have been showing plenty of nitrogen in fields and his observations would confirm that. Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home News Feed DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16 DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16 DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 7/19/16 Corn pollination is underway across the state.The pollination window may be a bit wider than normal this year since we planted part of our corn crop in April and part of it in late May. But overall in the Eastern part of the state, early corn pollination is going well, says DuPont Pioneer agronomist Eric Miller, “Corn pollination is underway in most fields and is progressing without any major problems.”  He said timely rains in most areas in the past week has set the crop up to face the warmer conditions that are coming this week. By Gary Truitt – Jul 18, 2016 The soybeans are setting up well. Miller stated, “The soybean crop is in full flower and some of the group 2 varieties are showing some pods on the lower nodes. Some are even at R3 growth stage.”   According to the latest NASS report, soybeans were blooming in 62% in the North, 61% in Central, and 38% in the South. Setting pods were 17% complete in the North, 23% in Central, and 12% in the South. SHARE SHARE Miller says the rains that came last week and over the weekend  relieved some dry areas in extreme Eastern Indiana, “Blackford, Jay, and Randolph Counties were very dry, but rain last week really helped those crops.”  He expressed concern, however, about SE Indiana counties. Like much of Southern Indiana, too much water has been the issue this year, and rains this past weekend exacerbated the situation.

The officer said he returned to where he was staying and saw the Capitol being stormed on television.After the rally, Trump’s supporters made their way into the Capitol and assaulted police officers as they screamed “Hang Mike Pence,” referring to the Vice President.The event forced Congress to temporarily delay the certification of President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.Local members of Congress Reps. Adam Schiff and Judy Chu released real-time statements during the incident to ensure their constituents they were safe.“Hi folks, my staff and I are safe,” wrote Schiff. “Thanks to the Capitol Police.

Staff still reluctant to share information

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. “Knowledge management” may be the buzzword of the moment but manystaff hoard knowledge rather than share it.The trend emerged in research by Birkbeck College, London, and isparticularly strong among “knowledge workers”, such as those workingin the media.Nearly one in five (18 per cent) agreed or strongly agreed with thestatement, “It is not in my best interests to share my good ideasfreely”.It is also evident in the health service and IT.Mark Auckland, chief knowledge manager at BT Global, said it is a naturalreaction because people have traditionally been rewarded for individual, notteam, performance.BT has tried to break the habit by giving recognition to staff who shareknowledge and including it in appraisals and performance management plans.”It is starting to be recognised that those who give the most are theones who get on. They get to work on the best and most interestingprojects,” he said.But he admitted it is a struggle. “These are hard habits to break,there is no magic pixie dust,” he said.In global business markets which have had a knowledge management system formore than two years, 30 per cent participate, 30 per cent show interest and 30per cent hoard,” he said.
