Rupert Hargreaves | Wednesday, 16th December, 2020 Enter Your Email Address Many investors fill their portfolios with FTSE 100 blue-chip stocks. While there’s nothing wrong with this approach, I think it’s a mistake to rely on the lead index alone. There are plenty of high-quality businesses in the FTSE 250 as well. I reckon these shares could yield even higher returns for investors in the long run. With that in mind, here are my top five FTSE 250 growth stocks I’d buy right now. 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…FTSE 250 growth stocksWatches of Switzerland has seen sales jump over the past year. The company, which is the UK’s largest Rolex retailer, has benefitted from a surge in domestic demand. Stuck-at-home consumers have been spending their cash on luxury items rather than out-of-bounds holidays and experiences. While the group’s growth may slow in 2021, I’m confident that Watches’ position in the market, which is a significant competitive advantage, will help the FTSE 250 business drive growth in the years ahead. Talking of competitive advantages, Howden Joinery has one of the best in its sector, in my opinion. The company’s unique operating model, where depot managers are rewarded based on sales, has helped the enterprise gain somewhat of a reputation for quality and cost. In previous years, this has proved to be a strong growth driver. And I think that’s likely to continue. Howden’s reputation in the trade remains healthy, and as long as management doesn’t make any serious mistakes, I think the business will remain the go-to store for many customers. Estate agent Savills is another FTSE 250 business I believe has a robust competitive advantage. The company’s brand is recognised the world over, which helps attract customers to its offer. I think that’s part of the reason why the firm’s revenues have jumped nearly 80% in six years. A booming housing market has also been a strong tailwind for the enterprise. As such, as long as the housing market remains buoyant, I reckon shares in Savills will continue to generate strong total returns for investors. Temporary headwinds Wizz Air Holdings has taken the European airline market by storm in recent years. The FTSE 250 group’s low-cost offer has attracted consumers, while management’s and conservative operating model and has kept costs low. Before the pandemic struck, Wizz’s balance sheet was flush with cash, unlike many of its competitors. This has helped the business weather the storm and I reckon it’ll allow Wizz to take market share when the skies across Europe open again. While airlines may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I think Wizz’s future potential is incredibly exciting. Finally, I think investors could benefit from the UK economic recovery by acquiring shares in challenger bank OSB. Formerly One Savings, this financial enterprise is primarily a mortgage lender. Shares in the firm have come under pressure in 2020 due to concerns about the state of the UK housing market. However, so far, the impact on the business has been minimal, and analysts are expecting a return to growth next year. As such, I think now could be a good opportunity to take advantage of the current low price of the shares and buy this growth stock.  Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned.

Families of Sandy Hook shooting victims win legal victory in lawsuit against InfoWars, Alex Jones

first_imgDrew Angerer/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Six families of victims killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School won a legal victory Friday in their fight against controversial radio and internet personality Alex Jones.A judge in Connecticut has granted the families’ discovery requests, allowing them access to, among other things, InfoWars’ internal marketing and financial documents.The judge has scheduled a hearing next week to decide whether to allow the plaintiffs’ attorneys to depose Jones.The families sued Jones and InfoWars for defamation and accused him of perpetuating a “monstrous, unspeakable lie: that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged and that the families who lost loved ones that day are actors who faked their relatives’ deaths.”Jones has sought to dismiss the lawsuit. “Plaintiffs suffered a horrible tragedy,” his defense attorney, Jay M. Wolman, wrote in a motion to dismiss the lawsuit. “Alex Jones and InfoWars are not responsible for this tragedy. To punish them for First Amendment protected speech on this matter of public concern will not bring back the lives lost.”Jones’ lawyer did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.The judge’s ruling on discovery gives the plaintiffs access to any communication Jones had about the Newtown massacre and to documents that could point to the inner workings of InfoWars.The plaintiffs — families of four children and two educators killed in the December 2012 shooting — have said the “deeply painful” lies they’ve accused Jones of pushing have caused them to endure “malicious and cruel abuse” as well as harassment and death threats on social media.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

A member of the YMCA board told WSBT that the closures happened because the South Bend Y is not financially viable right now. Even before the issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, there were building repairs that were needed. Being forced to cancel their programs provided no funding to fix up the building.The South Bend YMCA merged recently with several others in Michigan, including in Niles and Benton Harbor, to form the YMCA of Greater Michiana.

Cry-baby ‘link to behavioural problems’

first_img Sharing is caring! HealthLifestyle Cry-baby ‘link to behavioural problems’ by: – April 21, 2011 Share Tweet Sharecenter_img 40 Views   no discussions Excessive crying as a baby may hint at behavioural problems later in lifeBabies who cry excessively and have problems feeding and sleeping have a greater risk of serious behavioural problems later in life, say scientists.One in five babies has symptoms that could lead to conditions such as ADHD, according to research published in Archives of Disease in Childhood.The review of previous studies looked at nearly 17,000 children.A child-health expert said it would be wrong for parents to be “overly alarmed” by the results.Crying in babies is normal, but some cry “excessively” after the age of three months for reasons other than colic.An international group of researchers looked at this as well as problems eating and sleeping.Behaviour problemsThere was an increased risk of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), anxiety and depression as well as aggressive behaviour.The research showed that a baby with more than one risk factor was even more likely to develop behavioural problems.Professor Dieter Wolke, from the University of Warwick, told the BBC: “It is about a 100% increase in risk, a doubling of risk of behavioural problems with excessive crying, sleeping and eating problems.”Jane Valente, a consultant paediatrician at Great Ormond Street Hospital, said: “It would be wrong for people to get overly alarmed. I don’t think on the basis of this report people should be going to their GPs.“If a baby is not behaving like other babies it is probably worth discussing with a midwife or health visitor.”The study cannot tell if issues as a baby cause behavioural problems later in life: they could be an early symptom of those later problems.Professor Wolke said while there were treatments for problem crying, feeding and sleeping in babies, there was no research assessing their impact later in life.He added: “If you could prevent behavioural problems with an early intervention, in a public health-sense it could be very important.”Professor Mitch Blair, officer for health promotion at The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, said: “It is an important study.”He said parents were very good at knowing when something was wrong with their children and that the study “really reinforces the need for attention at an early stage to prevent issues later in childhood”.BBC News Sharelast_img read more

Van Gaal defiant as criticism mounts

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP)If Manchester United went on the attack in games as much as its manager does in news conferences, England’s biggest team may not be in such a rut.Yesterday, a defiant Louis van Gaal criticised sections of the British media who reported this week he had offered to resign in the wake of United’s latest poor result a 1-0 home loss to Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.”I think it’s awful and horrible,” said Van Gaal, who walked out of a news conference last month. “It’s the third time I’ve been sacked and I’m still sitting here.”Lose to second-tier Derby in the FA Cup today and even Van Gaal acknowledges the scrutiny could be too much to take.The Dutchman said yesterday that he hadn’t offered to quit and the support of Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, was “fantastic.””It gives you a lot of pressure because when the board has such confidence in you, the pressure is much higher than when they say it’s your last game,” Van Gaal said. “Then the confidence is not so high.”United may be playing Derby just at the right time. They have won only one of their last six games in the FA Cup third round and have dropped off the top of the League Championship.Derby is managed by Paul Clement, the former assistant manager at Real Madrid where he worked under Carlo Ancelotti. Clement said he might speak to Ancelotti before today’s game at Pride Park.”I am not sure it will quite be a giant-killing if we get a good result,” Clement said. “It is a challenge we are really looking forward to, up against a team that is not in great form.”last_img read more

Delight for Deele College as three students win top national award

first_imgThree students from Deele College are celebrating national success this week after they came first place in the Foroige Youth Entrepreneurship Programme in Dublin on Thursday afternoon.The three girls, Ellie Barron, Saffron Porter and Stephanie Harper are Transition Year students in the school and their product ‘Clean Guard’ beat off stiff competition from students from across the country to take the top prize.The girls will now go on to Barcelona to represent Ireland at the European stage of the competition. They say that simplicity is the trademark of genius and that adage certainly rings true for the girls, who have come up with a simple, yet an ingenious way for athletes to keep their mouth guards or gum shields clean and free from bacteria.Through their involvement in sport and their participation in the Donegal Enterprise Board Workshop, they identified a niche in the market and a problem that needed a solution.They created ‘Clean-Guard,’ which consists of a liquid sanitiser, a brush and a container, which doubles as both a cleaning container and a holder for taking to games or fights.The product works in fifteen minutes and leaves the mouth-guard fresh and ready to use for the next outing. Ellie Barron, Saffron Porter and Stephanie Harper took the top spot at the Foroige Youth Entrepreneurship Programme.The feedback that the girls have received has been phenomenal, with boxing sensation, Jason Quigley giving his seal of approval, just days after his last victory.He came to the school to meet the team behind the product and gave it his seal of approval.“After my last fight, I fired the mouth-guard into my bag and it was covered in blood. I took it out two days later and had to spend ages cleaning it with boiling water and a toothbrush.“It would have been great to have a cleaning product for the gum-shield and I will be using ‘Clean-Guard’ from now on so well done to the girls for creating something that we, as athletes, need.”There were buoyant scenes in the school on Thursday afternoon, when word filtered back that the team had won the overall prize and a trip to Barcelona in September. The girls were inundated with congratulatory messages, one of which came from the current Minister for Education, Joe McHugh, who congratulated the girls on their creativity, initiative and marketing skills.He highlighted the benefits of Transition Year, which allows students to take their learning outside the classroom and embrace their creativity. He also noted that the girls have the ability to take this product further.School principal, Mr Joe Boyle, was understandably delighted with the girls’ achievement and he says that it was a proud day for both the school and for the families of those involved.“I can’t emphasise the gravity of what the girls have done in winning a national competition which pitted them against the very best in the country. I’d like to say well done to the girls and indeed their families, who have supported them throughout this competition.“I would also like to pay a special mention to their teacher, Ms Orla Gallagher, who has worked night and day to help the girls.“I would also like to show my appreciation to Liam Porter, who is not only a past student of the school but a big supporter of everything we do here at Deele College.“Liam has been an invaluable asset to the team throughout. I would also like to thank all those was assisted the girls in any way for the competition.“On Monday, we have one of the highlights of the school calendar, which is our annual prize-giving and the girls will undoubtedly be honoured for their hard work and success on the day.“We are delighted that Education Minister, Joe McHugh TD will be here to join us for this celebration.”Delight for Deele College as three students win top national award was last modified: May 13th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
