3 high-quality FTSE small-cap stocks I’d buy in this market crash

first_imgNichols Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Fullers It’s an old stock market adage that FTSE 100 blue-chips are less risky than small-cap stocks. However, there are exceptions to the rule. Indeed, I’m convinced a few small-caps actually have stronger blue-chip credentials than some Footsie giants!Regular Motley Fool readers will know I’ve been banging on for years in praise of the couple of dozen long-established family businesses listed on the UK stock market. Pubs group Fuller, Smith & Turner (LSE: FSTA), soft drinks firm Nichols (LSE: NICL), and lighting company FW Thorpe (LSE: TFW) are three such firms. Let me show you their blue-chip credentials, and why I’d be more than happy to buy them 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…Building long-term wealthStrong balance sheets, and careful stewardship through multiple economic cycles and market crashes, are features of these businesses. I believe these qualities align well with the aims of investors seeking to steadily build wealth over the long term.Furthermore, with a largely stable shareholder base of family members, and like-minded long-term investors, these companies’ share prices tend to hold up relatively well through the sort of market crash we’re currently experiencing.The table below shows the performances of the FTSE 100, Fullers, Nichols, and Thorpe since markets went into free-fall after 21 February. 7,404 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. -25% 319p G A Chester | Friday, 13th March, 2020 | More on: FSTA NICL TFW FTSE 100 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Thorpe 274p Seven decades of dividend growthFullers (founded 1845) owns premium pubs and hotels, as well as craft cider and gourmet pizza restaurant chain The Stable. As you can see, it’s outperformed the FTSE 100. This is despite it being in one of the sectors most heavily impacted by Covid-19 fears. For example, blue-chip Whitbread, the owner of Premier Inn — and food and drink chains, including Brewers Fayre — has seen its shares plummet 46%.Fullers has a strong, freehold property-backed balance sheet. Furthermore, the sale of its brewing business last year, with cash proceeds of over £200m, now looks very timely. The company has a remarkable dividend record of seven decades of unbroken growth. The running yield of 3% and price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14 indicate value against historical standards. And the same is true for Nichols and Thorpe.Defensive out-performerNichols (founded 1908) owns a portfolio of still and carbonated drinks brands, headed by its flagship brand Vimto. The superior performance of its shares (-5%) versus the FTSE 100 reflects the defensive characteristics of the business. Having said that, it’s also outperformed Footsie drinks giant Diageo (-23%), which is widely seen as an exemplar of blue-chip quality.Nichols’ latest annual results show cash of £40.9m on the balance sheet at the year-end, and no debt. The cash-adjusted P/E is 17 and the running dividend yield is 3%.Another cash-rich small-cap stockFW Thorpe (founded 1936) designs, manufactures and supplies professional lighting systems. It serves diverse industries and customers. Nevertheless, it’s more geared to the general economic backdrop than a company like Nichols. In other words, it’s a cyclical rather than defensive business. Yet its shares (-14%) have significantly outperformed not only the FTSE 100 during this market crash, but also classy blue-chip sector peer Halma (-19%).Thorpe is another cash-rich family business. It had £30.8m on its balance sheet and no debt at its last year-end. The cash-adjusted P/E is 17.8 and the running dividend yield is 2%.Hopefully, you can now see why I believe Fullers, Nichols and Thorpe deserve to be called blue-chip small-caps.center_img Image source: Getty Images. 1,350p Price at 21 Feb 914p “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Change -5% 5,237 -14% Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

It is the day after, if you will. Monday in Easter week, Jesus has been raised from the dead. The miracle has happened. Hallelujah, Christ is risen. The Lord is risen indeed. When I served as a priest in Winston-Salem, North Carolina back in the 1970s, I learned about a custom that was old and venerable, that was part of the tradition of the Moravian community, of which there was a large settlement there in Winston-Salem. In old Salem, near the Salem church, near God’s Acre, the Moravian cemetery there, early on the morning, before the sun rises, the Moravian community and other friends and well-wishers gather on Easter Sunday morning before the sun comes up. And there is the Easter sunrise service.It begins with these words, “The Lord is risen. All hail, all hail, victorious Lord and Savior, thou hast burst the bonds of death,” and the music begins and the congregation processes from the church to the cemetery, to God’s Acre. And when you see the Moravian cemetery, there are no mausoleums. There’s no differentiation. They’re dignified headstones, like in a military cemetery. Everyone has the same headstone with their name and information on it, but there is no differentiation, for the cemetery itself is a reminder of our equality before all mighty God who created us all.Not many hours before Jesus sacrificed his life, and just a few days before he was raised from the dead, he said this to his gathered disciples, “Now is the judgment of this world. Now the ruler of this world will be driven out, and I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself”. God came among us in the person of Jesus to reconcile us with God and to reconcile us with each other. To help us and to show us the way to become the human family of God and to show us that, that is God’s mission. That is God’s dream and that is God’s intention, and Easter is a reminder that together with our help and support, God’s will, will be done.Archbishop Desmond Tutu some years ago said this about that quote:“God sent us here to help God realize God’s dream of a new world and society, gentle, caring, compassionate, sharing.” ‘When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people to myself’, God says. “Please help me to draw all.” For there are no outsiders or aliens. All are insiders, all belong, black and white. Rich and poor. Young and old, male and female, educated, uneducated, gay, lesbian, straight, all belong in this family of God. This human family, the rainbow people of God, and God has no-one but you, and you, and you and me to help God realize God’s dream.”* Hallelujah. Christ is risen. The Lord is risen indeed. Amen.*Quoted in “The prodigal God”, in God at 2000, edited by Marcus Borg and Ross Mackenzie, Morehouse Publishing (2002).

Estas meditaciones pueden verse en cualquier momento haciendo clic aquí.13 de abril de 2020:  Todos pertenecen a esta familia de DiosParece que la tormenta ha pasado y el sol ha salido, al menos por un rato. Es el día después, por así decir, el lunes de la semana de Pascua. Jesús resucitó de entre los muertos. El milagro ha sucedido. Aleluya, Cristo ha resucitado. El Señor en verdad ha resucitado. Cuando serví como sacerdote en Winston-Salem, Carolina del Norte, en la década de 1970, quedé impuesto de una costumbre, antigua y venerable, que era parte de la tradición de la comunidad morava, de la que había un gran asentamiento allí en Winston-Salem. En el viejo Salem, cerca de la iglesia de Salem, cerca de la [llamada] Parcela de Dios, el cementerio moravo de allí, temprano en la mañana, antes de la salida del sol, la comunidad morava y otros amigos y simpatizantes se reúnen el Domingo de Pascua en la mañana antes de que salga el sol. Y allí tiene lugar el culto del amanecer de Pascua.Comienza con estas palabras: “El Señor ha resucitado. Salve, salve, victorioso Señor y Salvador, has roto los lazos de la muerte” y comienza la música y la congregación desfila en procesión de la iglesia al cementerio, a la Parcela de Dios. Y cuando ves el cementerio moravo, no hay mausoleos. No hay diferencias. Son lápidas dignas, como en un cementerio militar. Todos tienen la misma lápida con su nombre y sus datos, pero no hay diferencia, ya que el cementerio en sí es un recordatorio de nuestra igualdad ante el Dios omnipotente que nos creó a todos.No muchas horas antes de que Jesús sacrificara su vida, y solo unos días antes de que fuera resucitado de los muertos, dijo esto a sus discípulos reunidos: “El juicio de este mundo ha llegado ya, y el príncipe de este mundo va a ser expulsado. Pero yo, cuando sea levantado de la tierra, atraeré a todos a mi mismo”. Dios vino entre nosotros en la persona de Jesús para reconciliarnos con Dios y reconciliarnos unos con otros. Para ayudarnos y mostrarnos el camino para convertirnos en la familia humana de Dios y mostrarnos que esa es la misión de Dios. Ese es el sueño de Dios y esa es la intención de Dios, y la Pascua es un recordatorio de que, junto con nuestra ayuda y apoyo, se hará la voluntad de Dios.Hace algunos años, el arzobispo Desmond Tutu dijo esto acerca de esa cita:“Dios nos envió aquí para ayudarlo a realizar Su sueño de un mundo y una sociedad nuevos, amables, solidarios, compasivos, participativos. Dios dice ‘Cuando sea levantado de la tierra , atraeré a todos a mí mismo’. Por favor, ayúdenme a atraerlos a todos”.Porque no hay forasteros ni extranjeros. Todos son íntimos, todos pertenecen, negros y blancos. Ricos y pobres. Jóvenes y viejos, hombres y mujeres, cultos e incultos, homosexuales y heterosexuales, todos pertenecen a esta familia de Dios. Esta familia humana, el pueblo del arco iris de Dios, y Dios no tiene a nadie más que a ti, a ti y a mí, para ayudarle a realizar Su sueño”.* Aleluya. Cristo ha resucitado. El Señor en verdad ha resucitado. Amén.*Citado en “The prodigal God”, en God at 2000, editado por Marcus Borg y Ross Mackenzie, Morehouse Publishing (2002). Usado con permiso.

Behind the scenes – British & Irish Lions Tour 1997 vs Natal

first_imgTuesday May 20, 2008 Behind the scenes – British & Irish Lions Tour 1997 vs Natal The British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa in 1997 was remembered as being one of the best Lions tours to date. A victory over the Boks in their own back yard was achieved for only the second time in the century by the Lions, making it a tour that will always be remembered as a historic occasion for fans around the globe. Over the course of the next few months and year leading up to the 2009 tour of South Africa for the British & Irish Lions, we’ll be digging up the best moments from the Lions tours thus far and featuring them in the build up to what should be another classic period in the history of world rugby. Certainly, 1997 had some breathtaking moments that will forever be remembered and looked back on as classic bits of play that will be revered for being ingredients towards the tremendous victory. Who could forget Matt Dawson sniping down the wing and dummying about three of the Springbok defenders? Or that classic John Bentley 50m try vs Transvaal at Ellis Park? The biggest moment of course was Jerry Guscott’s winning drop kick that sealed the series for the men from the British Isles. This footage that you’re about to watch though features one of the poignant occurrences on the tour. It’s the devastating moment when superb Welsh scrum half Rob Howley realises his tour is over, the week before the first test, after dislocating his shoulder against late nineties powerhouses Natal in Durban. The injury cruelly denied Howley the chance to gain a full Lions cap at the time. The clip starts with a highly rousing speech from coach Ian McGeechan that sends shivers down the spine and gives you an inside view as to one of the reasons why he’s so well respected. Through the game we see the reactions of the players up close, and then of course the ill-fated injury to Howley. We also see tough as nails Martin Johnson nonchalantly getting stitched up before returning to the field. Final Score: 42-14 to the Lions. Time: 08:15 PLEASE NOTE:  A warning for the more squeamish of viewers. The Howley injury isn’t pretty, and the Martin Johnson gash to the eye is also very graphic, so watch with caution and if you don’t like blood, rather watch Percy having his hair pulled here .

Turkish regime opens fire on Kurds, leftists

first_imgThe Turkish government, as well as admittedly fascist elements, have opened a broad attack on democratic organizations throughout western Turkey. Meanwhile, the Turkish army has continued its assault on the Workers Party of Kurdistan (PKK), both guerrillas and civilians, in the majority Kurdish southeast of the country.The U.S. and other NATO governments support the Turkish regime’s offensive. The Ankara regime recently granted the U.S. Air Force the right to use military bases inside Turkish borders to carry out bombing raids against Syria and Iraq. Turkey’s government has also waged war and subversion against the Syrian government.Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan schemed in last June’s national election for his ruling Justice Party (AKP) to increase its majority to 60 percent of the seats in Parliament. Had he achieved this, Erdogan would have been able to change the Turkish Constitution and consolidate his presidential rule.Instead, his AKP lost 71 seats, winning only a minority — 258 — of the 550 seats. A new leftist coalition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (HDP), with much support from the Kurdish population, won a surprising 79 seats. The AKP, still the biggest party in parliament, was forced to call a new national election for November.The PKK.Fortified by its deal with the Pentagon, the Erdogan regime then opened up an air war on the PKK in Iraq and against Kurdish forces in Syria, while stepping up repression in the Kurdish regions. The PKK liberation forces, which had been engaged in peace talks with the Erdogan regime over the past two years, fought back. Turkish army and police forces killed Kurdish fighters and many civilians, but also took casualties as the PKK retaliated.In the latest escalation, the AKP and the fascist Nationalist Movement Party, also known as the Grey Wolves, attacked and firebombed offices of the leftist HDP and the homes of some of its members throughout Turkey on Sept. 8 and 9.During the June elections, the HDP campaigned on demands to raise the minimum wage, improve access to university education and achieve gender equality. It promised to create a ministry of women and make International Women’s Day a national holiday. The HDP has a man and woman, respectively, as co-chairs: Selahattin Demirtas and Figen Yukseldag.300 HDP offices attackedAt a press conference in the eastern city of Diyarbakir on Sept. 9, Demirtas charged that while the army and police are carrying out state terror against civilians under a curfew in the majority Kurdish cities in eastern Turkey, in the west of the country, Erdogan is encouraging open street terror by fascist thugs. Within two days, there were more than 400 assaults and attacks on party offices, newspaper offices, shops and houses of Kurds and tents of Kurdish seasonal workers across the country. More than 300 attacks were carried out on HDP offices, with some burned to the ground. (Junge Welt, Sept. 11)Demirtas called on supporters of his party to organize self-defense squads. He said the attacks were not spontaneous reactions from the population in response to attacks by PKK guerrillas, as the government alleged, but a dress rehearsal for a civil war. He accused the AKP and the Turkish secret service of coordinating the attacks on his party.On Sept. 10, the German daily newspaper Junge Welt published an interview with Semra Dogan, co-chair of HDP in the Kadiköy district of Istanbul, in which she explained her party and the new situation.The HDP “is a joint project of the Kurds, the left and the democrats,” she said. “We are fighting for equality, freedom and peace. Since we got 13.2 percent of the vote in the parliamentary elections on June 7, the state has been trying to stop us. The police and military operations are part of a long-prepared plan to crush the democratic forces and open the way for the presidential system sought by Erdogan.”She continued: “Kurdish cities have pro­claimed autonomy because they feel threatened. It serves a legitimate self-defense. The state wanted to lynch the residents. The guerrilla forces have repeatedly stated that they will not go to war, and will limit their action to self-defense. But the armed forces bombard the guerrillas and their base areas, trying to provoke them into an active war.“Erdogan and his AKP need dead soldiers [to arouse nationalist fervor against the Kurds]. The president knows that he was backed into a corner by these tactics — he is now trying to mobilize nationalist votes to continue to hold on to power.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

World squid fisheries

first_imgSome 290 species of squids comprise the order Teuthida that belongs to the molluscan Class Cephalopoda. Of these, about 30–40 squid species have substantial commercial importance around the world. Squid fisheries make a rather small contribution to world landings from capture fisheries relative to that of fish, but the proportion has increased steadily over the last decade, with some signs of recent leveling off. The present overview describes all substantial squid fisheries around the globe. The main ecological and biological features of exploited stocks, and key aspects of fisheries management are presented for each commercial species of squid worldwide. The history and fishing methods used in squid fisheries are also described. Special attention has been paid to interactions between squid fisheries and marine ecosystems including the effects of fishing gear, the role of squid in ecosystem change induced by overfishing on groundfish, and ecosystem-based fishery management.last_img read more

Hoboken public safety task force announced

first_imgHOBOKEN — In a Tuesday press release, Mayor Ravi Bhalla announced the formation of the Mayor’s Task Force on Public Safety to address violence and quality of life issues resulting from intoxicated bar patrons.The task force includes Police Chief Ken Ferrante, Provisional Fire Chief Brian Crimmins, Police Capt. Tory Pasculli, Police Sgt. Charles Kucz, Police Sgt. William Montanez, Health Officer Frank Sasso, Battalion Fire Chief David Buoncuore, Fire Captain Stephen DiVincent, Business Administrator Stephen Marks, Corporation Counsel Brian Aloia, and Environmental Services Director Leo Pellegrini.According to the press release in 2017, there were 277 ABC violations by liquor license holders. Of the 133 liquor license holders, more than half received zero tavern sheets in 2017 and more than three-fourths received two or fewer tavern sheets. A tavern sheet is a record of ordinance violations from a bar. The release also states that half of all violations in 2017 were issued to just 11 establishments, and that since August 15, police officers have been attacked, the majority occurring late at night by intoxicated people. The release additionally states that during SantaCon, 17 bars received tavern sheets, while the remaining 87 percent of establishments were not issued violations.“We can no longer ignore the fact that a small number of establishments are creating a big problem for everyone else in the form of violence, property damage, and financial cost,” said Bhalla in the release. “When a person comes from out of town and spits in the face of our officers, as has happened numerous times, that is unacceptable. When an officer is assaulted by an inebriated patron and receives a concussion, as happened to Officer Lombardi on Christmas Eve, I will not allow the status quo to continue.”“The mayor’s creation of this task force is not about hurting the bar and restaurant industry in town,” said Police Chief Ken Ferrante in the release. “This task force is going to take a deep look into incidents, events, and problem bars that are contributing to a decay of our city’s quality of life, causing injuries to our residents, visitors, and police officers, and hurting most of the businesses in town, including a majority of our bars and restaurants. The disruption that SantaCon brought to this great city, its residents, and business owners the week before Christmas and during Hanukkah, just so 10 to 15 percent of our bars can profit, is unacceptable.”Bar owners showed up at Wednesday’s council meeting to ask to discuss these issues with the city before any laws are changed.
