Jonathan Smith | Tuesday, 23rd March, 2021 | More on: ENT KGF We’re almost through the first quarter of 2021. How time flies! So, with spring here and summer beckoning, I want to look at some of my best stocks to buy now for the rest of the year. Also, I’d much rather do my research and buy the stocks now given the time I have available during lockdown. This also ties in with buying now ahead of the upcoming ISA allowance deadline.A gamble or dead certain?First up is Entain (LSE:ENT). It was previously called GVC Holdings, and is a company that owns gambling brands such as Ladbrokes and Coral. I think it’s a great stock to buy now based on recent news and share price performance. The stock is up over 300% in the past year.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…Even with physical stores closed for much of the past year, full-year results showed that online sports and gaming growth beat the negatives. This allowed for 1% top line growth versus 2019. Another positive story within the past week is the acceptance of a takeover bid by Enlabs. This deal will see Entain buy Enlabs for £316m, in what should be a good acquisition of a similar betting company.The risk I see with the company is the potential drop in online revenue following lifting of lockdowns around the world. Even though physical stores can reopen, the risk is that foot traffic won’t be enough to counterbalance the fall in online numbers, leading to a fall overall.Another top stock to buy nowThe second company that I think is one of the best stocks to buy now is Kingfisher (LSE:KGF). Similar to Entain, it owns different brands under the corporate umbrella. These include B&Q and Screwfix. Share price performance has been impressive, up 156% over the past year.I think the outlook is positive for the company, even despite the potential hit from lockdown easing. As I noted back in January, the business has seen a boom during 2020 thanks to all of us tackling more DIY projects and making home improvements. This drove double-digit sales growth in both Q3 and Q4.Even though I do think easing lockdown will reduce demand slightly, I feel consumer mindsets will have changed having realised a lot of DIY jobs aren’t that hard (I’m speaking from experience here). Add into the mix the likely strong housing demand thanks to the stamp duty extension period, and I think Kingfisher will be a top stock to buy for the rest of the year.One issue that Kingfisher need to monitor is operational performance with the brands (such as Castorama) within Europe. The company mentioned this in the full-year report that operations needed to be improved, particularly in France. The impact on distribution post-Brexit is also something that won’t be easy to adjust to.Overall though, I think both Entain and Kingfisher are top stocks to buy now.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” jonathansmith1 has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Fall is the Time to Apply Phosphorus

first_img Facebook Twitter Fall is the Time to Apply Phosphorus Harvest is the time of year farmers evaluate their soil fertility. There is one aspect of soil fertility that often gets overlooked. As farmers watch their yield monitors this harvest, nitrogen levels in the soil are top of mind, especially when we see a drop if yield performance in some spots in the field. But Ryan Barham, regional manager with SFP in Indiana, says Phosphorus levels can also be a reason for yield problems in a field, “Phosphorus sometimes gets overlooked and treated as a secondary nutrient, but it is just as important to a plant’s growth and good health as nitrogen is.” He added  phosphorus plays a major role in plant functions like photosynthesis and energy transfer, thus it is a major contributor to yield. If more Phosphorus can be made available for a plant, it will be healthier. While some growers think of phosphorus application as a spring activity, Barham says fall application is really a better idea, “Fall weather conditions and time availability favor a fall application.” He said, in the spring, farmers should be focused on seed bed preparation and not phosphorus application.  He adds with a fall application of phosphorus, a stabilizer like AVAIL is needed, “This will give you 10 to 12 months of protection.” In addition, Avail will help with the uptake of phosphorus by plants in the spring. Adequate amounts of phosphorus available for uptake increases yield potential, increases water use efficiency, and boosts overall plant health. In addition, AVAIL offers growers flexibility with liquid or granular solutions which have been applied on more than 50 million acres in a wide variety of crops.  AVAIL protects phosphorous with a water-soluble and biodegradable shield against P fixation that leaves no environmental footprint.

TCU falls to SMU, 75-70

first_imgEquestrian upsets No. 1 Baylor, swept by Texas A&M at NCEA Championships Facebook Linkedin TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Equestrian defeated in Big 12 Championship printThe Horned Frogs were defeated by the No. 22 SMU Mustangs 75-70 Wednesday night at the Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center in Fort Worth, Texas.The Frogs held a 70-67 lead over the Mustangs with three minutes to play, but could not hold on for the win, surrendering eight unanswered points to end the contest.Holding on to leads was a struggle for the Frogs throughout the game. The Frogs jumped out to an early 22-10 lead in the first half, propelled by a 15-1 run. The Mustangs stormed back however to erase that deficit and take 40-37 lead into halftime, boosted by their own run of 16-1.“We lost our composure at crucial times and got caught up in what I call a bunch of nonsense, and to me that is disturbing because we are better than that and our program is built on stuff better than that,” TCU head coach Trent Johnson said.TCU forward Karviar Shepherd and guard Chauncey Collins, who had already sunk four three pointers in the game, each missed three point attempts on difficult looks in the final minute of play. Guard Brandon Parrish also had a three-point attempt blocked in the final seconds of play. The Frogs went 9 for 27 from three point range in the loss.Rebounding also plagued the Frogs. The Frogs were out-rebounded by SMU 44-32 on the night.“We just didn’t box out like we needed to,” Shepherd said. “That’s something we can work on at practice and we’re looking forward to our players getting better at that.”To add to the rebounding woes for TCU, the Mustangs scored 24 points off of second chances, compared to the Frogs’ 11.“The difference in the game, make no mistake about it, was rebounding,” Johnson said. “The difference in any game we play in this year is going to be our ability to rebound and make good decisions.”Forward and TCU-newcomer Vlad Brodziansky had another solid outing in the loss, recording 18 points for the Frogs. His night included five two-point field goals, two three point field goals, and two free throws. Brodziansky also recorded seven rebounds on the night, despite the teams overall struggles in the rebounding department.“He is real consistent in his behavior and his approach,” Johnson said. “Nothing he has done surprises me.”On the other side, SMU was propelled by a solid outing from guard Nic Moore. Moore went 9 for 19 from the field, including five three pointers, tallying a game-high 26 points for the Mustangs.“Nic Moore is an incredible player and he shows incredible class,” Johnson said.The Mustangs were without head coach Larry Brown in the win. Brown is serving a nine game suspension for academic violations in the program involving guard Keith Frazier. Sanctions were levied against SMU on Sept. 30.The Frogs will take the court again when they host Colgate on Saturday, Dec. 5.

RSF condemns legal action against the BBC and the Guardian over Paradise Papers leaks

first_img News December 20, 2017 RSF condemns legal action against the BBC and the Guardian over Paradise Papers leaks United KingdomEurope – Central Asia Protecting sources CorruptionJudicial harassmentFreedom of expression RSF alarmed by UK proposal to jail journalists as ‘spies’ for obtaining leaks Reporters Without Borders – known internationally as Reporters sans frontières (RSF) – condemns the proceedings filed by offshore law firm Appleby against the BBC and the Guardian, suing for breach of confidence. Appleby has requested the disclosure of documents that informed reports published as part of the Paradise Papers – a leak of 13.4 million files exposing the offshore interests of a myriad of prominent individuals and companies.

A spokesperson for the Guardian said the lawsuit was “an attempt to undermine our responsible public interest journalism and to force us to disclose documents that we regard as journalistic material.”Despite the fact that the Paradise Papers were analysed by 381 journalists from 96 media outlets in 67 countries around the world, according to the Guardian, Appleby has launched proceedings only against the Guardian and the BBC, which have both stated they will fight the legal action in court.“Appleby’s legal action against the BBC and the Guardian could serve as yet another serious blow to investigative journalism in the UK. The information published in the Paradise Papers is overwhelmingly in the public interest. The media’s right to inform, and the public’s right to be informed, must be protected as a matter of priority,” said RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent.These proceedings are even more troubling when viewed in the context of other worrying moves to restrict press freedom in the UK, such as the adoption of the Investigatory Powers Act – the most extreme surveillance legislation in UK history – and the Law Commission’s proposal for a new ‘Espionage Act’ that could see journalists jailed for obtaining leaked information.The UK is ranked 40th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. to go furtherlast_img read more

Jerry O’Dea is Limerick’s new Metropolitan Mayor

first_imgby Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr Michael Sheahan handing over the chain of office to Cllr Jerry O’Dea after his election as Mayor of Limerick Metropolitan District.(Pic: Brian Gavin Press 22)NEWLY elected Metropolitan Mayor of Limerick, Cllr Jerry O’Dea hopes to see the continued creation of a “living city” where families will want to live and walk the streets without fear.After securing the mayoralty with 11 votes from Fine Gael and Fianna Fail at City Hall last Friday evening, the Mulgrave Street-based publican also spoke about fostering further integration between the city and all its “fine third level institutions” and furthering Limerick’s success on the sporting field.“Our famous Thomond Park needs no further mention and the reopening of the Market’s Field with the return of Limerick FC was a joy to behold,” said Mayor O’Dea.Sinn Fein ran 22-year-old City East representative, Cmhlr Séighin Ó Ceallaigh as a candidate for mayor last Friday, while the Anti Austerity Alliance put Cllr Paul Keller forward for the position.AAA councillor Cian Prendiville predicted the next 12 months will see major battles on the council and for ordinary people of the city. In a fervent burst of sloganeering, he told council members that they were voting for “change, not just chains”, “justice, not junkets” and “policies, not personalities”.“The last year has seen the AAA councillors act as whistleblowers on this council. Whistleblowers on the cuts. Whistleblowers on the junkets. Whistleblowers on the poor planning. That’s the kind of Mayor and council we need for the year ahead,” Cllr Prendiville commented.Sinn Fein leader on Limerick City and County Council, Cllr Maurice Quinlivan claimed that they were electing what he believed to be “a pseudo mayor for a pseudo council”. He pointed out that a a significant number of Limerick people are totally opposed to having two mayors.“People find it hard to distinguish between the two and to figure out their respective roles and powers. Indeed, most people find the situation to be farcical and a waste of energy and resources,” said Cllr Quinlivan.“The farcical situation whereby the two main parties insist on firstly having two mayors and deputy mayors and then hogging these positions to themselves underlines the reality that the merger of the two Limerick Councils has been a deeply flawed and undemocratic project from the very beginning.”The two Labour Party councillors present on the night, Joe Leddin and Elena Secas, abstained from voting.Meanwhile, newly elected Metropolitan Deputy Mayor, Cllr Shane Clifford, stated that there was “a lot of hypocrisy” over the debacle about having two mayors. He also called on public representatives to make the “biggest effort to work together”.
