Enter Your Email Address To turn a modest sum of money like £1,000 into £10,000 from investing in shares, you need to be a good investor. It’s possible to achieve a 1,000% return if you’re prepared to wait a very long time with an ETF or a portfolio of dividend-paying shares.However, to increase the odds of ten-bagging, then the smaller end of the market is probably the place to look. That’s because, as many growth investors point out, elephants don’t gallop.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 benefits of smaller sharesWhen I talk about smaller shares I’m not talking penny stocks — those are a whole other ball game and come with big risks. If you suffer a 50% loss on an investment you need to make 100% to just breakeven. You can check out the maths yourself if you don’t believe me. It gets worse as your losses increase. This is why I avoid penny stocks and instead am looking to invest for the long term. This is about investing in high-quality stocks that happen to have low market capitalisations. Probably because they are small, growing businesses, or they have been previously mismanaged.The benefits of smaller-cap shares are numerous, but among the most important is greater inefficiency in the market. Because, institutional investors do less research on smaller-cap companies, there are more opportunities to buy undervalued shares. On top of that, small caps find it easier to double in size. It’s easier to grow from being worth £50m to £100m, for example, than it is to go from £10bn to £20bn.Thirdly, smaller companies can generally be more agile, less bureaucratic, and in many cases will have founders retaining significant shareholdings. This often makes them more entrepreneurial.Investing in shares: making returns from smaller-cap companies Bearing in mind all these advantages, I’d check for profitable companies on AIM as a starting point. Many of these companies are actually very high quality. The trick though is to find ones that are undervalued. One way is to find those with low price-to-earnings ratios and low price/earnings-to-growth ratios, favoured by growth investors like Jim Slater. In many ways the later is more important as the former might screen out too many high quality companies.Car seller Motorpoint is an example of a share that I think has the potential to rapidly grow. It has a PEG of around 0.4 and earns a respectable return on capital employed of 16%. Its industry has faced some problems, but its fundamentals seem strong.With a market cap just over £250m, it’s certainly not a behemoth. It’s a ship that can be turned around. When lockdowns end, I expect it could be well placed to pick up from pent-up consumer demand, which will drive sales.So, at the end of the day, growth investing isn’t without its challenges. However, I believe trying to find undervalued growth shares is the way to go for me.last_img read more

New All Blacks RWC 2019 jersey fuses Maori and Japanese culture in lightest design to date

first_imgMonday Jul 1, 2019 New All Blacks RWC 2019 jersey fuses Maori and Japanese culture in lightest design to date adidas and New Zealand Rugby (NZR) have paid homage to both Maori and Japanese cultures, with the unveiling of the new All Blacks jersey for Rugby World Cup 2019. The new jersey was designed by Y-3, the collaboration label between adidas and legendary Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto.ADVERTISEMENT“We wanted to create a jersey that brought together the Japanese and Maori cultures. The design bears hand-drawn koru and fern motifs in a celebration of Maori culture. It has been a privilege to work on such a major project and I wish the team the best of luck in the tournament,” said Yamamoto.New Zealand Rugby’s Kaihautū (Maori Advisor) Luke Crawford, who gave adidas advice on Maori design, said: “The fern design represents the legacy of those players who have worn the jersey in the past, while the unfurling koru represents the younger players coming through – the All Blacks of the future.“We think Y-3 have really captured the mauri (essence) of what the All Blacks jersey stands for and how it represents us, and created a truly beautiful garment.”Taking on the innovative design of the most recent All Blacks jersey, the key technological elements of the RWC2019 design include the use of seamless, woven technology. The jersey’s construction was fully automated which aims to provide an unparalleled fit, strength and speed, and is 25 percent lighter than previous designs.ADVERTISEMENTAs with previous Rugby World Cup jerseys, the RWC trophy is embossed on the right sleeve acknowledging the All Blacks’ Rugby World Cup successes in 1987, 2011 and 2015. The RWC2019 logo is on the right of the chest, which sees the adidas badge move to the centre of the jersey.The All Blacks silver fern logo remains on the left-hand side of the jersey, while the all black collar returns for the Rugby World Cup.The fusing of Maori and Japanese design aesthetics also extends to the design of the training jersey the All Blacks will wear at Rugby World Cup 2019. Taking inspiration from the Maori concept of kaitiaki (guardianship) and the Japanese fuko neko (lucky cat), the Y-3 team has designed a mythical cat figure which will adorn the back of the training jersey. The training range also includes a performance tee, performance singlet, polo shirt and hoodieADVERTISEMENTThe replica jersey, as well as the training range, will be now available for fans to purchase (RRP €65-130). The range will be stocked at all adidas stores, major sporting goods retailers, rugby retailers throughout New Zealand and the world, and online at www.adidas.com.

Set within a relatively recent subdivision upon the side of Mt Martha, the Split House negotiates a complex range of conditions typical of emerging coastal developments. New houses for ‘downsizers’ in a suburban mode, paved driveways and letterboxes prevail, vying for the expansive views to Port Philip Bay, and backed by the relatively wild, coastal woodland of Mt Martha Public Park. Construction works are ongoing in the area; completed houses with gardens at varying stages of maturity are punctuated by empty lots cleared of all vegetation.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsWithin this context the Split House provides a range of spatial relationships to its site and the broader territory that carefully balances the owners’ desire for privacy and engagement with their surrounds. The house comprises 2 relatively simple volumes linked by a splayed stair that also acts as a seating area for people to gather, listen to music, sit in the sun. Occupying separate levels that follow the natural contours of the site, the 2 pavilions provide a separation between the upper, main living/master bedroom zone and rumpus room/guest bedrooms below. Through the curation of windows and doors a range of direct and indirect connections to the landscape provide multiple opportunities for occupation throughout the year. Smaller elements, such as integrated seating, stairs and study nooks provide spaces for quiet contemplation, juxtaposed with larger communal areas for family and friends to come together.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsAt its inception the landscape and spaces in-between the house were conceived as of equal importance as the building itself; screens and finely detailed pergola elements provide sheltered zones around the house that reveal themselves as a sequence of distinct spaces with varying qualities of light and shadow.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessResidence DBB / Govaert & Vanhoutte ArchitectsSelected ProjectsUNStudio’s Ben van Berkel Among 3 New Speakers Revealed for WAF 2016Architecture News Share CopyHouses•Australia Simon Knott, George Huon “COPY” Architects: BKK Architects Area Area of this architecture project Builder: Mud Office “COPY”last_img read more

Limerick campaign targets depression

12-year-old boy bitten in apparent shark attack in Florida, escapes with ‘very minor’ injuries: Official

first_imgConnah/iStock FILE(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — A 12-year-old boy was bitten in an apparent shark attack in Florida Wednesday morning, escaping with only “very minor” injuries, according to a fire rescue official.The boy was in waist-deep water at a Fort Lauderdale beach when he was bitten on his foot by what officials believe was a small shark, Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Chief Stephen Gollan told ABC News.The boy screamed and started bleeding, but lifeguards rushed over and treated him, Gollan said.The boy suffered a “very minor” puncture wound to his right foot and was taken to a local hospital with injuries that didn’t appear to be life-threatening, Gollan said. He is expected to be released soon, he said.This was the first shark attack Gollan was aware of in Fort Lauderdale this year.He said the shark likely mistook the boy’s toes as small fish.“This time of year we see a lot of bait fish that are moving down the coast,” Gollan said.And when there are more small fish, there are more bigger fish — like sharks — too, he added.“Sometimes they see a toe and they think it’s another small fish they’re going after,” he said of the sharks.There were 66 unprovoked shark attacks on humans worldwide last year, according to the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida.The U.S. had the most unprovoked attacks last year, with 32 confirmed incidents, according to the university.Click here for tips on how to stay safe from sharks.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
