Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. If you invest in good-quality shares and hold them for the long haul, I reckon they can help you compound your way to a million. As part of a diversified portfolio, the following are two of the best UK shares I’d buy now.Food productsWith Cranswick (LSE: CWK), both operations and the share price have held up quite well through the coronavirus crisis. The FTSE 250 meat-focused food products supplier has proved the resilience of its business recently. Indeed, the company has defensive qualities that show up in the long record of gradually rising revenue, earnings, cash flow, and shareholder dividends.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 enterprise has so far been a growth success. And that reflects in the almost 350% rise in the share price over the past 10 years. But I wouldn’t allow past achievements to put me off owning the stock. I reckon the future looks bright for Cranswick. And shareholders taking the plunge and buying a few shares today may be glad they did a decade from now.In June, chief executive Adam Couch said there is a “solid platform from which to continue Cranswick’s successful long-term development”. And the firm has been ploughing money into its operations as well as acquiring new businesses to keep the growth flowing.Meanwhile, with the share price near 3,734p, the forward-looking earnings multiple is just above 21 for the trading year to March 2022. And the anticipated dividend yield is a little under 1.8%. This isn’t a bargain-basement valuation, but the business is a premium enterprise and may be worth paying for.Fast-moving consumer goodsThe fast-moving consumer goods sector has long been cherished by investors as a well-stocked hunting ground for cash-generating, defensive businesses. And perhaps the king of the bunch in the FTSE 100 is Unilever (LSE: ULVR), which has a market capitalisation around £119bn. Indeed, it’s a huge business.You’ll probably know many of the company’s resilient and much-loved brands, such as Hellman’s, Domestos, Vaseline, and many others. Consumers tend to stick to the brands they know, and they keep using up the product and coming back for more. That’s why company cash flow can be so reliable and backs steady shareholder dividends.But Unilever has delivered growth as well. And that shows up in the share price. The stock is around 130% higher than it was 10 years ago. But on top of all that capital appreciation, shareholders have collected a rising stream of dividend income. For a sleep-well-at-night investment, that’s a decent return.And the next decade could work out well for shareholders as well. In July, chief executive Alan Jope said, “Our focus for the rest of 2020 will continue to be volume led competitive growth.” Meanwhile, with the share price close to 4,549p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for 2021 is just below 20. And the anticipated dividend yield is around 3.4%. Unilever has carried a full-looking price tag for as long as I can remember. But I reckon the company remains one of the best UK shares to buy now.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 8th February, 2021 | More on: CLX Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Last week, I was screening the UK market for attractive growth stocks when I stumbled on a fast-growing company I’d never heard of before – Calnex Solutions (LSE: CLX). Calnex is a Scottish technology business that specialises in testing and measurement services for telecommunication (5G) networks. It listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in October last year.After doing some further research on Calnex, I came to the conclusion that this growth stock is a good fit for my portfolio and I bought some CLX shares. Below, I’ll explain why I like the stock.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…Calnex: a UK 5G stockCalnex appears to have significant potential for growth. As the company explains in a video here – the arrival of 5G and cloud computing mean that the telecoms industry is going through major changes. New technologies such as autonomous vehicles and smart cities require new telecoms standards and mobile networks need to be rapidly expanded to facilitate this technology. These network upgrades are benefiting Calnex. It’s worth noting that the market for 5G testing equipment is expected to grow at 9% per year between 2020 and 2027. This industry growth should provide long-term tailwinds.One thing that stands out to me about Calnex is its customer list. It includes mobile carriers like BT Group and AT&T, hardware providers such as Huawei and Ericsson, and semiconductor companies like Qualcomm and Intel. This incredible customer list suggests to me that Calnex has a competitive advantage.Strong growthIts financials are impressive. Between FY2018 and FY2020, revenue climbed from £8.42m to £13.7m while net profit jumped from £0.75m to £2.79m. Return on capital employed (ROCE) was 36% in both FY2019 and FY2020 meaning the company is very profitable.Meanwhile, half-year results, posted in late November, were strong. Here, the company posted a 37% increase in revenue along with a 91% increase in adjusted earnings per share. The company also advised that it is now debt-free after it repaid all its debt in October.Founder ledAnother reason I’m bullish on this UK 5G stock is that Founder and CEO Tommy Cook owns 20% of the shares. That means management’s interests are aligned with those of shareholders.Additionally, Mark Slater of Slater Investments has just invested in the stock. Slater is one of the best stock pickers in the UK. I see his investment as very encouraging.ValuationTurning to the valuation, Calnex currently trades on a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 30. This is high, but I think this valuation is reasonable given the company’s growth prospects. However, it doesn’t leave a huge margin of safety. If future performance is disappointing, the stock could fall.RisksAside from the valuation risk, there are a few other risks I’ll be keeping an eye on.One is currency. Around 85% of the company’s orders are made in US dollars. However, the company reports in sterling. A swing in the GBP/USD rate could have a big impact on earnings.Another issue is that 50% of revenues come from just 10 customers. This means there’s some customer risk. Calnex shares: I’m a buyerOverall, however, I think there’s a lot to like about Calnex. I see it as a good play on 5G and smart cities technology.I’ve bought this UK 5G stock for my ISA and I’m excited about its long-term growth potential.

Lake House / Andersson Wise Architects

first_imgphotographs:  Paul BardagjyPhotographs:  Paul Bardagjy Text description provided by the architects. This structure, located on the steeply sloped bank of Lake Austin, is designed for downtime. A nearly mile-long path leads the visitor down the hill, over a suspension bridge constructed of individual segments strung onto cables that spans a ravine, and finally down to the boat house. The simple, elegant building rises above the water, resting on the surface like a water skater. And like the surface-skimming insect, this off-the-grid domicile exerts a minimal impact on its surroundings. Its structure, fabricated into a single framework of steel and barged to the site, is anchored into rock beneath the water. A floating carpenter shop was used to complete the construction from the water side. Save this picture!© Paul BardagjyRecommended ProductsWindowsVEKAWindows – SOFTLINE 82 ADWindowsC.R.

North Carolina burning

first_imgMumia Abu-JamalThey call it Moral Mondays and in North Carolina this means a movement of civil disobedience led by the Rev. Dr. William Barber, a local head of the NAACP.Why protest? That’s because for the first time since 1870 the Republicans have their hands on all the levers of power there — the governor’s office and both houses of the Legislature — and they’re on a tear to keep it.One of their first efforts was to attack voting rights and similarly, redistricting, to block voters from the polls and to redraw districts to isolate and weaken those who make it through to vote. They slashed the unemployment benefits of some 170,000 people, so much so that they no longer qualify for federal unemployment programs. North Carolina is the eighth state to cut such benefits. Social programs have also been hit and that’s just the beginning.And so, demonstrations at the capital have attracted hundreds of protesters. Nearly 1,000 people have been arrested in Raleigh, proving that we aren’t as far as we think from the Civil Rights days. It is one of the ironies of history that a party built on Black suffrage and Black freedom has now become one designed and determined to strip Blacks from the voting rolls.Despite the people in the streets and the arrests, national coverage is slight and fleeting. That may because they’re so busy covering 50-year anniversaries featuring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. instead of what’s happening now right beneath their noses.You may not see it, or hear of it, but a movement is blossoming in Raleigh, N.C. It’s called Moral Mondays. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A Glimmer of Hope for Immigration Reform

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter With 2014 being an election year, there was little hope for any progress to be made on immigration reform. But, it is election year political pressure that just may provide a window of opportunity for this issue which is so important to US agriculture. American Farm Bureau Federation labor specialist Kristi Boswell says Democrats are pressing the President to take action to show up Republicans while Republicans are taking action to try and show up the President, “I think some of the pressure on the President from his base, pushing him to do something administratively, we see as a reason for the House to act and House Republicans to have a mark on this issue.” A Glimmer of Hope for Immigration Reform SHARE A Glimmer of Hope for Immigration Reform The Senate has an all in one immigration bill while the House has split immigration reform into several different bills. Boswell says in either case agriculture will benefit, “So long as our current workforce and a work authorization for our current workforce and a new flexible guest worker program are included in those pieces, we’re supportive of that effort.”center_img Facebook Twitter Farm Bureau says now is the time for farmers to show support and let lawmakers know how important immigration reform it to agriculture, “Farm Bureau has been working very closely in campaigns and also continue to do outreach in districts to make sure members in D.C. know that their farmers are on board with immigration reform as well. I would encourage all farmers to touch base with your member of Congress. Tell your story. It really matters what constituents are saying at home, so we need that push to make members of Congress know that we need immigration reform this year.” Home Indiana Agriculture News A Glimmer of Hope for Immigration Reform By Gary Truitt – Jun 3, 2014 Previous articleUSDA Acreage Report Could Shake Up the Soybean MarketNext articleCorn Production Forum Added to Fueling Ethanol Workshop in Indianapolis Gary Truittlast_img read more
