Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images. 2020 has been a strange year for the FTSE 100. Sharp rises and falls in the market have occurred whenever news is released regarding Covid-19. However, while many businesses are feeling the impact of the pandemic, this tech stock has been flourishing — increasing by nearly 120% in one year!An opportunity to beat the market?Kainos Group (LSE:KNOS) is a digital platform and services company. It provides IT consultancy to a wide range of FTSE 100 businesses as well as the UK government.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…The firm uses cloud-based technologies to run software services. Since its employees were able to easily  work from home, the performance impact from Covid-19 has been negligible.Its revenue stream comes from two segments of the business – digital services and digital platforms.The first focuses on increasing the cost-effectiveness of organisations that primarily operate within the public, commercial, and healthcare sectors (including the NHS). The central government is also working with Kainos across multiple departments – such as the Commonwealth Office, Home Office, Land Registry, Department for Environment, and many others.The second segment is the cloud platform side of the business. The firm sells a range of software solutions all designed to reduce inefficiencies within the healthcare sector. The technology is behind the digitalisation of NHS patient records and the automation of healthcare delivery.In 2010 the company began to develop a strong relationship with the American software vendor Workday. Kainos has expanded the base capabilities of the software to allow for direct consulting, project management, remote integration, and post-deployment services for its clients.The financialsClients regularly pay for the consultancy services, as well as annual licensing fees for their software solutions. This means that revenue is generated almost entirely from repeat sales to customers.With companies closing offices to keep their employees safer, the need for the Workday platform has only increased. This presented an incredible opportunity for Kainos to expand it long client list.The most recent interim results saw top-line revenue grow by 23% to £107.2m. This strong performance originates from double-digit growth across all its sectors. International, Commercial, and Healthcare revenues rose by 54%, 34%, and 73%, respectively.Seeing this level of growth is quite impressive. However, what I’m excited to see is the operating profit margin almost doubling from 14% to 22%.By already having a business infrastructure in place, combined with favourable market conditions, the proportion of operational costs remained constant. In other words, Kainos was capable of transforming most of this new revenue directly into profits.The bottom line — can it beat the FTSE 100?Seeing the firm double its underlying profit in only six months is quite an achievement. While I think it’s unlikely that this will occur again, the margin increase has made the share price more justified in my eyes.Assuming the business can maintain its current growth rate over the next six months, I would expect the pre-tax profit to be around £50m. This would be the equivalent of a forecasted price-to-earnings ratio of 35.It’s certainly not a cheap stock, but with more companies needing to undergo digital transformations, I believe this stock is on track to continue outperforming the FTSE 100 Index. 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.center_img 1 tech stock I’d buy to beat the FTSE 100 Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Zaven Boyrazian does not own shares in Kainos.

first_imgClifton Daniel appointed interim dean of St. John the Divine Cathedral Betty Butler Cole says: Rector Martinsville, VA Featured Events [St. John the Divine Cathedral press release] Episcopal Diocese of New York Andrew M.L. Dietsche and Bruce Macleod, president, Board of Trustees, Cathedral of St. John the Divine, have announced the appointment of the Rt. Rev. Clifton “Dan” Daniel III as interim dean of the cathedral, effective March 15.Daniel, who is currently the chairman of the Board of Trustees of General Theological Seminary in New York, most recently served as provisional bishop of the Diocese of Pennsylvania.In describing his life’s work that now has brought him to the cathedral, Daniel said, “I have served for 45 years as deacon, priest and bishop. In those years, I have served in settings ranging from rural to metropolitan. One thing I have learned is that people (including me) and communities are hungry to hear the liberating story of Jesus; hungry to receive the healing and reconciling medicine of the Gospel in the midst of busyness, fragmentation, division and dissension. Even the busiest of us can hear the Lord in quietness … if we seek to learn to be quiet.”Dietsche, in making the announcement, expressed his gratitude in welcoming  Daniel, with all the experience and passion he brings with him, to the cathedral and the New York diocesan community. Daniel, who will be moving to the close with his wife, Anne, looks forward to spending the next chapter of his life at the cathedral.Daniel said, “I look forward to working with Dean Kowalski during the transition over the next several months. I know I will value his guidance as we continue the important work of this extraordinary community.”As well as appreciating the many opportunities for service and celebration to be found here, Daniel and his wife are pleased to be closer to their three daughters and four grandchildren, who all live in New York.Dietsche and Macleod, with the Cathedral Board of Trustees, will establish a search committee in the next few months to identify a permanent new dean. The search is expected to conclude by the end of 2018.

For cinemas there is a Censor Board. Why can’t you think of a similar statutory body for the electronic media?”, CJ Dipankar Dutta asked Anil Singh, Assistant Solicitor General of India.The ASG submitted that the courts have time and again ruled out external regulation for media and stressed on self-regulation.The bench replied that the self-regulation mechanism for media has failed.”We are concerned with the efficiency of the present mechanism. Once the self-regulation has failed, what should be the remedy? That is the concern.We are in that situation, where the self-regulation has failed”, Justice Kulkarni remarked.The Chief Justice warned that if appropriate action was not taken “the entire system will break down”.”The entire system will break down. The cherished values of our founding fathers will become irrelevant. What about the preamble? There is no fraternal feeling left”, he said.”Media has a fundamental right to freedom. But that cannot be used to infringe the rights of others. This cannot go unregulated”, Justice Kulkarni added.The Chief Justice stressed that a balance has to be maintained between the right to freedom of speech, right to fair trial and right to reputation.The bench said that it was not against investigative journalism but there are certain boundaries that should not be crossed. It takes years of hardwork to build up a reputation which can be ruined with a single report.The Court asked the Union Ministry to treat the situation as an “SOS”.The ASG replied that he understood the concerns of the court and assured that he will convey the same to the department.”Till now we were also expecting that the media will self-regulate and will act in a responsible manner. But when time changes, we have to think about it. We are working on this seriously”, he told the bench.”That is the only hope we have that you are looking into it”, Justice Kulkarni told the ASG.The bench opined that in such situations are for the executive and the legislature to address.During the beginning of the hearing, the ASG referred to the Supreme Court judgment in Sahara case, which refrained to frame guidelines for media reporting on sub-judice matters.The apex court said that orders to postpone publications can be passed by the concerned courts in specific cases on ‘aggrieved persons’ should ‘real and tangible prejudice to a fair trial’. There cannot be a general direction to postpone publications, Singh said, Singh submitted that the present cases were PILs where none of the petitioners were personally affected by the offending reports. He also pointed out that the Supreme Court has expressly ruled out prior restraint on publications.At the same time, he added that the Union of India’s position was against “media trial”.The bench has adjourned the hearing till Monday(October 19), when Senior Advocate Arvind P Datar is slated to make submissions on behalf of the News Broadcasters Standards Association(NBSA).Complete updates from the hearing may be read at the twitter thread given below :#SSRCase : Bombay HC to continue hearing a batch of petitions seeking regulations on “media trial” in the context of #SushantSinghRajputCase .A bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice G S Kulkarni starts hearing the matter.Follow thread for live updates.#BombayHC pic.twitter.com/9w4lHfXz9H— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) October 16, 2020 Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgSurveillance video shows the unidentified intruder inside Brundidge City Hall early Friday morning. Officials said the burglar spent nearly an hour inside the building, rummaging through desks and drawers. Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the burglar. “He sat at desk chairs and searched through drawers and papers on the desktops using a flashlight,” Davenport said. “He took his time and seemed to be comfortable as he went from one office to the other.”The surveillance cameras revealed that, for nearly an hour, the intruder opened drawers and sat casually opening envelopes and sorting through papers as if he were looking for something in particular, Davenport said. “He was not your everyday burglar.”Davenport said the intruder did take money out of several drawers and $35 in bail bond money.  Altogether, he got less than $100.According to city officials, the alarm system at Brundidge City Hall malfunctioned so the police department was not alerted. It was not until the person who cleans the building arrived at 6 a.m. that the break-in was discovered. Sponsored Content Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Skip Davenport said surveillance camera images of the intruder are being closely studied and will hopefully provide useful information that will lead to an arrest.“The intruder was about six feet tall and medium build or maybe a little larger,” Davenport said. “He was wearing what looked like some sort of rain jacket and rain pants. It was an infrared camera so his clothing appeared white so we don’t know the color of his clothing but his shoes were black. He had on gloves and his head was covered with a hood or mask of some kind.” During the time the intruder was in the building, he went into every office, Davenport said.

first_imgWLS-TVBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(WAUKEGAN, Ill.) — The mayor of Waukegan, Illinois, made an emotional plea for residents to stay calm after police opened fire on a car occupied by an unarmed young Black couple, killing one and wounding the other.Mayor Sam Cunningham said he is close personal friends with the grieving families of the couple shot on Tuesday night in the Chicago suburb, prompting outrage and plans for a large protest on Thursday.Relatives identified the couple as 19-year-old Marcellis Stinnette, who was killed, and Tafarra Willams, the mother of his baby, who was wounded.Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper confirmed Stinnette’s identity on Thursday and said preliminary autopsy results indicate he died “from injuries due to gunshot.”“This is tough on Waukegan. This is tough on this community,” Cunningham said at a news conference on Wednesday. ” I know these families personally.”He said Stinnette was the grandson of Josie Stinnette, a woman he lived across the street from and grew up with. He said he grew up with Williams’ mother, Clifftina “Tina” Johnson.“To be able to speak to them about this, yes, it hurts,” said an emotional Cunningham, who in 2017 became Waukegan’s first African American mayor. “It just doesn’t hurt me, the police department — it hurts Waukegan, Illinois.”He added: “Yes, I’m nervous. I’m nervous because there’s a lot of uncertainty out there, there’s a lot of rumors flying around. I’m nervous for Waukegan. We’ve seen this play out throughout this country. It just rips through communities and it takes years to rebuild.”Since the May 25 death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer pinned his neck to the ground with his knee, with Floyd heard crying out, “I can’t breathe,” many protests, including some that turned violent and led to looting or vandalism, have erupted across the U.S.The Waukegan shooting comes less than a month after no homicide charges were filed in the death of Breonna Taylor involving three white Louisville Metro Police Department officers who opened fire on the 26-year-old Black emergency medical technician in her apartment while they served a no-knock search warrant. A grand jury that heard evidence in the case said it wasn’t given the option of filing homicide charges because prosecutors said Taylor’s boyfriend fired the first shot.One of those officers, Brett Hankison, was charged with wanton endangerment for allegedly firing shots that penetrated a wall of Taylor’s apartment and entered a residence occupied by a family. Hankison, who has been fired by the police department, pleaded not guilty.Waukegan is just 15 miles south of Kenosha, Wisconsin, a city that erupted in protests that turned violent following the Aug. 23 police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake, a 26-year-old Black man who was shot multiple times in the back and paralyzed.Johnson said her daughter, who is expected to survive bullet wounds to the stomach and hand, told her a police officer opened fire on the car she was driving “for nothing” and that Stinnette died in the passenger seat next to her.“She said, ‘Mama, they just shot us for nothing’,” Johnson told ABC station WLS in Chicago. “My daughter said she put her hand up, and if she didn’t put her hand up, she said, ‘Mama, I would be dead.’”Waukegan Police Department Commander Edgar Navarro said the shooting unfolded just before midnight on Tuesday when an officer went to investigate a “suspicious vehicle” that fled when he approached.Navarro said a second officer spotted the car and pulled it over.“That officer exited his vehicle and the vehicle that he was investigating began to reverse toward the officer,” Navarro alleged. “The officer then pulled out his duty weapon and fired into the vehicle that was reversing. Both occupants were struck.”He said the female driver was wounded and the male passenger was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.No weapons were found in the car.Navarro declined to release the name of the officer involved in the shooting. He said that officer and the one who initially approached the car each have been placed on administrative leave and that the investigation has been turned over to Illinois State Police.He said video footage from the officers’ body cameras and squad car dash cameras also was turned over to state police, but he declined to say whether any of the footage captured the shooting.“We’re also upset. It is something our community, our police department has great concern over, and it’s difficult for all of us,” Navarro said.In a written statement, police officials said that both officers involved in the incident are five-year veterans of the department. Officials noted that the officer who opened fire on the couple is Hispanic and the officer who initiated the suspicious-vehicle investigation is white.Navarro was forced to give two news conference on Tuesday after the first one, outside the police department, became chaotic when friends and relatives of Stinnette and Williams began interrupting him, yelling, “He’s lying!” and “Why’d you shoot them?”The second news conference was inside the police station away from supporters of the couple, who organized a march on Thursday from the scene of the shooting to police department headquarters.Lake County State’s Attorney Mike Nerheim said he’ll review all the findings of the investigation and decide whether charges are warranted.“Illinois State Police comes in, they conduct a completely independent investigation. The Waukegan Police Department will play no role in this investigation,” Nerheim said.In 2015, Nerheim, a Republican, came under criticism when he declined to file charges against a white Zion, Illinois, police officer who fatally shot 17-year-old Justus Howell, a Black teenager from Waukegan, in the back. Nerheim said at the time that the officer was justified in using deadly force because a gun was found next to Howell’s body.The shooting led to large protests that continued after Nerheim’s decision. In June, protesters demanded Nerheim reopen the investigation, but the prosecutor refused.Nerheim said he will not make a decision in the shooting of Stennette and Williams until the investigation is complete, cautioning that it could take several weeks.“My process is, I don’t review these cases piecemeal. I do that intentionally. I wait until the entire investigation is done, and then I review everything. So as we speak, I have seen nothing in this case,” Nerheim said. “If I determine that a police officer or anybody committed a violation of the law then they will be charged. If I determine that they did not, then they won’t be charged and I will release a very detailed statement explaining the law, the rationale for that decision.”He said that in keeping with a policy enacted in 2015, he will release the entire case file, including any video footage, once he renders a decision.“The important point to make here is that this will take some time. I know this raises a lot of emotions in us as well and we’re all upset about this, but I just hope people will stay calm and respect the process,” Nerheim said.Cunningham, a Democrat, pleaded with people calling for justice to wait for the facts to come out.“If there comes out where there was was something that happened, where we did something wrong, we will deal with it,” Cunningham said. “I hope this doesn’t cause us to be at a point where you distrust the city or the police or each other. I hope it’s a time that we can stand together and say, ‘We’re going to find out the truth, the whole truth and nothing but, and make our decision based on that.’”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgThe biggest sales gains in soft drinks last year came from those perceived to be healthier, such as water, juices and dairy drinks, but cola is still the largest sub-category. Jason Roots, sales manager at Bako London, says Coca-Cola and Diet Coke continue to be the best-sellers, but other drinks are making gains. “We have noticed growing sales of water, flavoured waters, juices and smoothies, but the biggest trend is a move away from cans into bottles – and this is good news for retailers, as bottles sell for more than cans,” he says.His view is shared by Russell Jenkins, sales director at 22-store Camarthenshire-based baker David Jenkins. The company has traditionally stuck with the best-sellers – Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Fanta and Sprite – but is now selling more bottles than cans.Soft drinks are profitable, providing shrinkage is kept under control, and should be sold from self-select multi-deck units, Jenkins states. “We have to keep an eye on them because we do get a bit of pilferage. But if we didn’t sell them from these units, we wouldn’t sell any at all. On pricing we look at what the competition is doing, except for the supermarkets as we can’t compete with them.”As well as the big national brands, the chain supports a local one – Princes Gate water – sourced from a nearby spring, which sells 330ml and 500ml bottles and accounts for a sizeable proportion of sales.David Jenkins is supplied by Swansea-based wholesaler Top Pops, which it has been using for 30 years. “They offer very good prices and a very good service,” he says. “They used to deliver to our central warehouse, but the drinks took up so much room that we now have them delivered directly to stores. Some get two deliveries a week, others just one. But if we run out, they will come out to top us up.”Potts Bakers in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, which stocks soft drinks in four of its five outlets, doesn’t sell cans at all – just bottles and cartons. “We would sell them in the fifth shop as well, but we are restricted to selling traditional bakery lines there,” says Roger Potts, joint managing director. In the other four shops it limits the range to Coca-Cola and Diet Coke – its best-sellers – Fanta, Lucozade, Ribena and Buxton waters, plain and flavoured. Potts says it recently switched to a new wholesaler for drinks called the Soft Drinks Company, which delivers directly to each store once a week. “Soft drinks are a profitable line for us,” he says. “We sell them for more than the recommended retail price and make a very decent margin on them.”Alongside the dominant carbonated drinks, bakers need to make sure they offer bottles of a big water brand. According to Zenith International, UK bottled water sales rose by 5.3% last year, and are expected to rise from 2.1bn to 3bn litres a year by 2010. “Despite phenomenal growth over the past two decades, more consumers are turning to bottled water as their favoured soft drinks choice,” explains Zenith research director Gary Roethenbaugh.According to BMRB International’s TGI survey – figures released by Zenith in April – the percentage of adults aged 15 and over who are drinking bottled water has risen from 35% in 2000 to 55% in 2005, with numbers of male drinkers increasing. For bakers, unless you’ve got a good local source, as David Jenkins does, it may be safest to stick to the big bottled water brands. These include Buxton, Evian and Highland Spring.Evian is the number one brand of water in the UK, while Volvic is the top seller within impulse outlets. The main sales growth is coming from consumers trading-up to the larger sports cap bottles – typically from 500ml into 750ml and even one-litre sizes, which gives retailers a great opportunity to make more cash margin from single purchases.At this time of year, as temperatures rise, so can sales. Water manufacturer Danone’s studies of EPOS data suggest that, for every degree of temperature rise (above 17ºC) water sales increase by 6.2%. This means water sales can double when temperatures hit between 17ºC and 29ºC, so bakers really need to make sure they have enough in stock, and it needs to be chilled.The water companies are taking more of an interest in smaller bakery retailers and other stores. Steve Flanagan, category strategy manager for Danone Waters, comments: “As part of the impulse environment, bakeries are important to us, particularly as we have seen an increase in bottled water consumption in line with the well-publicised health trend. Our recent research has highlighted water as being the drink of choice at lunchtime.” SMOOTH OPERATORInnocent smoothies, made by the Innocent Drinks company (Shepherds Bush, London), are now available to bakers through Bako London. “In May we held a healthy eating day where we showed off low-fat cake mixes and GI bread mixes,” explains Bako sales manager Jason Roots. “On that day we had a lot of requests from customers for smoothies, so we looked into it and opted for Innocent. “The most important thing for us was the fact that Innocent smoothies are all natural products. Shelf life is not an issue, as we get them in to order.”The Innocent range comprises seven flavours and a seasonal smoothie, which this summer is cherries & strawberries. All come in 250ml bottles and the recommended retail price is £1.79-£1.99.FIRST CHOICE TAKES TIGER TO MARKETIt’s business as usual as far as UK bakers are concerned for First Choice Coffee, which was recently acquired by Netherlands-based Drie Mollen International. George Miller, managing director of First Choice says the move will “strengthen and accelerate growth and expansion plans for the brand” as it continues to target bakers. He says the company’s immediate priority is to introduce the new Tiger compact espresso coffee machine. This has been developed with patented milk texturing technology to produce freshly brewed speciality coffee at the touch of a button. Elaine Higginson, sales director at First Choice Coffee, says its Tiger machine was specifically developed for outlets such as bakeries, where a speciality coffee offering will boost profits. “When a coffee is ordered, the operator can fulfil the order while the Tiger grinds and dispenses a freshly prepared coffee,” she says. “Coffee culture has demanded the highest-quality coffee and bakeries can capitalise on this market by offering customers a quality beverage to accompany food. A customer is more likely to repeat-visit an outlet that offers the whole package.” The quality of the raw ingredients is crucial to the finished product, she adds. Grand Café 100% certified coffees from First Choice are sun-dried and slow-roasted to exact specification. The firm also has a range of Fairtrade, organic and 100% Certified Rainforest Alliance coffees.last_img read more
