Why I think this FTSE 250 stock is a top buy for any portfolio

first_imgWhy I think this FTSE 250 stock is a top buy for any portfolio When you think of the gaming industry nowadays, you tend to think of computer games. Platforms such as XBox, Playstation and PC gaming spring to mind.But Games Workshop (LSE:GAW), the British manufacturer of miniature figurines, war games and fantasy figures, is setting the gaming world alight in another part of the gaming sector. It currently possesses two well known products, Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar. 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 Nottingham retailer and model manufacturer has been a sleeper success story with its shares more than doubling in the past year as its Warhammer franchise goes from strength to strength. The number of people logging on to Warhammer-community.com was up 48% in the latest six-month period, with fans returning to the site more frequently these days.Recent resultsIt announced record sales and profits in a six-month trading update last month.Shares in the firm jumped after it said pre-tax profits increased by 44% to about £58m over the six months to 1 December. It added that sales in December were in line with the board’s expectations and that the business was “in great shape”.The firm reported a 19% jump in sales for the period to £148m, ahead of the company’s previous guidance.Games Workshop was largely boosted by strong growth in its trade division, which saw sales increase 23.9% to £76.1m. It said this was driven by the addition of 200 new trade accounts as it increased supply to independent retailers.CEO Kevin Rountree was understandably upbeat and said: “We are pleased to once again report record sales and profit levels in the period. The global team have worked their socks off to deliver these great results.”The great results are very much bucking the trend of doom and gloom seen on the rest of the British high street.Meteoric riseThe business has been a major success story for investors in recent years, with the shares surging by more than 1,000% over the past five years.I feel it has a low risk attached due to its focus on physical models and board games. One of the key factors behind its success it that it is able to listen to customers and fans in-store to ensure products succeed. If its products are not doing well, it is able to show flexibility and make changes. It is expanding internationally with the US and Germany as key locations for new stores. In fact, it now has more stores in both North America and mainland Europe than it does in the UKNext stepsGames Workshop is in a quite unique position in my opinion. It has managed to sustain existing business, grow a new following and develop into an international operation too. Revenue and profit has been up year-on-year in each of the past four years and the dividend per share has also been steadily climbing. The price-to-earnings ratio sits close to the 30 mark which will have some people believing it to be overvalued, but not me.Rather than a traditional product, it is selling an experience. As well as that, it is selling itself well to investors through its ongoing success, as its share price rises prove.I believe Games Workshop is a top growth pick for any portfolio and I do not believe the naysayers who think it has already peaked.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The average 2-bedroom apartment in Apopka costs $1,000. On minimum wage, a person would have to work two and a half jobs to manage that cost. In some cases, they have to decide between groceries and prescription drugs. Saving for a down payment is out of the question.”Seater went on to explain that homeowners are healthier, their children are more likely to graduate high school and go to college.“No matter who you are or where you come from you deserve a good life. Every one of us deserves a better opportunity.”For this new development, Habitat Seminole-Apopka will build 24 homes in Juniper Bend. The approximate size of the houses will be 1,079 to 1,510 square feet and will be anywhere from three to five bedrooms with one to two baths.  The fair market value for the homes will be around $140,000 to $154,000.There are certain eligibility requirements that homebuyers must meet to qualify for this program. Homebuyer income must be 30% to 80% of the median income for the Orlando Metropolitan Area.  In addition, homebuyers must complete 200 to 400 hours of “sweat equity,” complete homebuyer education classes, have no more than $2,000 in collections, and be able to save $3,000 for closing costs.  For more information, please refer to habitatseminoleapopka.org.

¡Hugo Chávez, presente!

first_imgChávez campaigning in Caracas, Venezuela, October 2012.Photo: Chavez Corazon PatriaWorkers World Party joins the Venezuelan people in grief over the loss of the great revolutionary leader Hugo Chávez.The death of a larger-than-life leader like Chávez is hard to take. Millions around the world will deeply mourn the loss of his vibrant personality, his warm embrace of the ordinary people, his courage and resoluteness at critical moments — like the attempted coup in 2002, from which he emerged even stronger with the militant support of the masses of people. Also sorely missed will be his creative optimism expressed through countless projects that aim to unite the people of Latin America in a socialist future, based on cooperation and the equitable sharing of their abundant resources.As Berta Joubert-Ceci wrote in Workers World in December:“One leader is not the revolution. It is the masses and the process of revolution that create leaders, and not the other way around. Leaders, however, can steer the revolution, coordinate resources and speed it up. Leaders are also an important part of revolutions when they are the product of the masses’ aspiration.“Chávez is such a leader. He has been able to gather and concentrate the desire of the Venezuelan people for social justice and equality and turn it into action. Under his presidency, the government has lifted the lives of all Venezuelans, dedicating an impressive 43.2 percent of the budget to social programs. Illiteracy is now nonexistent in Venezuela and poverty has been reduced.“Along with improving the quality of life of millions of people, Chávez’s government has shown that Simón Bolívar’s dream of regional integration could be a reality. Together with revolutionary Cuba, Venezuela impelled the formation of anti-imperialist regional associations like the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (ALBA). These associations have been crucial for the improvement and cohesion of the region, including other Caribbean nations.“Chávez and Venezuela inspire the world by standing up against the U.S. imperialist monster. They show that nations can win and maintain national dignity, independence and sovereignty in the face of criminal imperialist interventions.”This is not just a time to mourn his untimely death from cancer. It is a time to express firm support for Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution. And a time to be more vigilant against the schemes being hatched by U.S. imperialism and its reactionary agents inside Venezuela.The imperialists have tried to undermine and overthrow Chávez, calling their goal “democracy,” even though he had the undisputed confidence of the majority of his people, as expressed in more than a dozen elections held during his tenure.Now they are scrambling to take advantage of this great leader’s death. But Chávez himself prepared for this moment by designing a Plan of Action for the Advancement of the Revolution and naming Vice President Nicolás Maduro to succeed him.We are confident that the Bolivarian Revolution will overcome this cruel twist of fate, and the Venezuelan people will rally, even more united than before, behind their leaders to advance the struggle toward a society free of classes and imperial oppression.Progressives in the United States must also put our shoulder to the wheel and give our undivided support to Venezuela in order to prevent imperialism from sabotaging the Bolivarian project to unite the popular, anti-imperialist struggles throughout Latin America.¡Hasta la victoria siempre, Comandante!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Military government blocks new satellite TV station’s broadcasts after 10 hours

first_img May 12, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the Thai government’s censorship of PTV, a new Thai TV station based in Hong Kong. PTV’s programmes were blocked on 18 March after it had been broadcasting for nearly 10 hours by satellite.A PTV employee said the government did not say what images or content it objected to. “The military government’s repeated censorship completely contradicts the supposedly democratic aspirations that have been professed since the military takeover,” the employee added.PTV was launched by Thai Rak Thai, a party linked to deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. It had planned to start broadcasting 24 hours a day on 1 March, but was prevented by the government, which claimed it had not obtained the necessary licence. To sidestep these obstacles, PTV then decided to join up with Star Channel MV1, an existing Thai satellite broadcaster.——01.03.2007Interim government urged not to repeat Thaksin’s faults with two TV stationsReporters Without Borders today called on Thailand’s military-installed interim government, the Council for National Security (CNS), and in particular Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont, not to repeat the errors of the past by trying to censor the media and above all control TV broadcasting.The press freedom organisation said it hoped the CNS would not censor People’s Television (PTV), a satellite station linked to deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra due to start broadcasting today from Hong Kong, and that the privately-owned television station iTV would be able to recover its independence and not be placed under state control.”The military who took power on 19 September rejected Thaksin’s policies,” Reporters Without Borders said. “So it is regrettable that the CNS has not begun a policy of media liberalisation and is repeating the mistakes made by Thaksin, who tried to suppress dissident media. The public must be guaranteed access to diverse sources of news and information, regardless of their affiliation or orientation, so that people can form their own views.”Affiliated to Thai Rak Thai, a party linked to Thaksin, PTV was due to begin round-the-clock satellite broadcasting from Hong Kong today, but the CNS has vowed to prevent the launch from day one and accuses PTV of not obtaining a government licence. It has appointed a special team of lawyers to block the launch and is threatening to prosecute PTV’s promoters.A source close to the CNS said the government fears that this new TV station would foment divisions in Thailand and that it would harder to stop it once broadcasting had got under way. Thirapat Serirangsan, who is minister of the Prime Minister’s office, said Thaksin allowed the media to mushroom, which in the new government’s view was a mistake to be avoided.Some 300 radio stations and websites have been censored since the military takeover. All the media have also been asked to “cooperate” with the new government and not behave in a “dissident” manner that could foster “general confusion” harmful for the public.Reporters Without Borders also condemns the lawsuits that have been brought against iTV, and a demand for the payment of a record 100.45 billion baht (2.25 billion euros) in unpaid concession fees and fines. Thailand’s first independent television station, iTV obtained a 30-year concession when it was created in 1995. It was noted for its free and independent editorial policies, which were protected by the fact that no shareholder could control more than 10 per cent of the company.All that changed in 1997 when Shin Corporation – then owned by Thaksin, who had not yet become prime minister – took advantage of the fact that iTV was on the verge of bankruptcy to acquire a controlling, 53-per cent stake. Thereafter iTV began to lose its independence and investigative journalism was replaced by entertainment.In 2004, when Thaksin was prime minister, an arbitration panel cut iTV’s annual concession fees from 1 billion to 230 million baht and said it could broadcast more entertainment programmes – all of which was clearly very beneficial to the Thaksin family-owned Shin Corporation. Prior to the military takeover, Shin Corporation and iTV were sold to Temasek Holdings, a Singaporean financial group.The CNS repudiated the arbitration panel’s ruling and sued iTV for failing to pay the full concession fees since 1 April 2004. As a result, a court ordered the station to pay 100.45 billion baht in accumulated concession fees and fines by 6 March and the CNS has announced that iTV will be transferred to state control if it has not paid by the deadline.

The bench of Justice Prabhat Kumar Jha observed prima facie, “It appears that the petitioner (doctor) has acted in accordance with the guidelines and directions issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India and he has not violated any guidelines issued thereunder. In this view of the fact, the order as contained in Annexure 3 is stayed.” In the backdrop, the Petitioner-Doctor was in-charge of the quarantine centre and had recommended home quarantine to one Lalbabu Mahto, who was asymptomatic at the time, after taking his blood sample. Subsequently, the Collector at the East Champaran district issued a letter directing registration of an FIR and imitation of departmental proceedings against the Petitioner. The Collector also referred a proposal for suspension of the Petitioner to the Disciplinary Authority. It was the case of the Petitioner that the impugned order was unwarranted as the Petitioner had acted in compliance with the guidelines issued by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on May 10, 2020 whereby it is stipulated that if a person whose sample is taken appears a very mild case/ pre-symptomatic case, such person should be allowed to home quarantine. Concurring with the submission, the court granted an interim relief of stay and posted the matter for consideration on June 25. Case Details: Case Title: Pravin Kishor Prasad Singh v.

As of Friday morning it already had over over 600 signatures.To look at the petition, see http://betterwaterfront.org/sign-the-petition-connect-hobokens-waterfront-by-securing-union-dry-dock-as-public-parkland/.last_img read more
