Everybody loves a multi-bagger as they can really turbo-charge your overall investment returns. But they don’t come along that often.It takes a special company to deliver that kind of return, especially if they can do it in a short period, as this amazing growth stock has done.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…Games theoryFTSE 250 growth hero Games Workshop Group (LSE: GAW) is up an incredible 1,175% over five years, turning £10,000 into £127,500. If you buy a stock like this at the right time, it can transform your wealth.Today it is up another 6.35% to 405p after its half-year report showed revenues, profits and dividends continuing to rise at a record pace.The group has done this by delivering a niche product for a fiercely loyal audience. The Games Workshop share price is flying high thanks to a committed army of miniature war game enthusiasts. Brands such as Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 enjoy dedicated communities, and the company has proved adept at building engagement with their followers.Gams Workshop has a successful website driving sales but has made a real success of its physical stores, by making them an exciting destination for Warhammer fans, staffed by like-minded enthusiasts.This is a global operation too, and may break new ground as it develops a TV series, based on the Eisenhorn series of novels, although that is still at an early stage, with no production contracts signed yet.Workshop of the worldRevenues grew £148.4m in the year to 1 December, a rise of 18.5% year-on-year, with operating profits up 45% to £59.2m.Management declared a dividend of 45p per share, in line with its policy of “distributing truly surplus cash”, and the Games Workshop stock now delivers a forecast yield of 2.6%, which is impressive given recent growth.Trolls and goblins may not be your thing, but those who love that world, live it. Games Workshop has to be careful though, because this kind of consumer can easily feel let down if it makes a wrong move, and the planned TV show evidently has risks.Hammering awayGiven the group’s instinctive feel for its customer base, it is a risk worth taking. TV is a hit and miss business, but imagine what a successful TV show could do for Games Workshop? If it works, this could only be the start of big growth.Naturally, the stock is no longer cheap, trading at 26.9 times earnings. Yet there is no sign of it slowing up, with the share price doubling in the last year. I worried about the high valuation in November, but still rated it a buy. I reckon it is today, as well.Naturally, you cannot expect Games Workshop to turn £10,000 into six figures over the next five years, given its sizeable market cap of £2.2bn. City analysts reckon earnings will slow, from a breakneck 126% in 2017 and 94% in 2018, to 12%, 5% and 2% over the next three years.However, I reckon Games Workshop still has plenty of fight left in it.

Shares in housebuilder Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) have fallen since Wednesday, when the FTSE 100 firm sold £500m of new shares. Taylor Wimpey’s share price is now down by nearly 40% from the highs seen in March.Should you be buying back into this stock ahead of the crowds, or is it time to take a more cautious approach? I’ve been taking a closer look.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…Why does this builder need more cash?Taylor Wimpey says that it wants the extra cash to take advantage of low prices in the land market. According to the firm, previously-agreed deals with other buyers are falling through. Attractive land is coming back on the market at lower prices.Buying land at times like this can lay the foundations for very profitable future developments. I don’t have a problem with this. I’m also encouraged to know that the firm has seen a strong surge of interest since reopening its show homes after lockdown.I don’t think Taylor Wimpey is likely to run out of cash, but I am a bit disappointed that this fundraising has become necessary.Why the Taylor Wimpey share price is fallingI don’t think this company’s financial management has been particularly good for shareholders.Since January 2012, Taylor Wimpey has paid out £2.3bn in dividends. The company’s net cash balance is now down to just £6.4m, even though £485m of dividend payments planned for this year have already been cancelled.This might still be a reasonably strong position, except that the firm also owes £650m to land creditors – people who’ve sold development land to Taylor Wimpey on credit.If we add this obligation to the group’s net cash balance, it becomes a net debt of around £644m. According to management, £125m must be paid to land creditors in 2020, with a further £270m due in 2021.It’s now clear to me why the company has had to ask shareholders for cash. Without taking on a significant amount of new debt, Taylor Wimpey might not be able to pay its existing land creditors and fund new land purchases.Here’s what I’d do nowIn more normal times, a big housebuilder might borrow money to fund land purchases. The fact Taylor Wimpey isn’t borrowing anymore money suggests to me that banks won’t lend – or that management is preparing for a more serious downturn.Housebuilders have enjoyed a decade-long boom, fuelled by cheap mortgages and the government’s Help to Buy scheme. Profits have hit record levels. But I think Taylor Wimpey has been too generous with its shareholder returns. Paying smaller dividends would have enabled the group to reduce its land creditor balance and build financial reserves.This hasn’t happened, so loyal shareholders are now having their holdings diluted. Each Taylor Wimpey share will now attract a smaller share of future profits (and dividends).At about 145p, Taylor Wimpey shares trade on about 10 times 2021 forecast earnings. That may seem cheap, but I think the outlook is likely to worsen over the next six months. I expect profit forecasts to fall.I think it’s also worth remembering that Taylor Wimpey’s 145p share price is still around 1.5 times its net asset value. In a falling market, that’s not cheap enough for me to be interested. I plan to stay away from this stock for now. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The latest edition of Invisible Grantmakers has been published, offering a new resource for trust fundraisers and prospect researchers.Social Partnership Marketing LLP has published the 21st edition of the annual specialist trust publication. The ‘invisible’ element indicates that it features grantmaking trusts “not listed in the most widely used trust directories”, according to its editor Robert Pike.Invisible Grantmakers 2018 details 100 trusts, collectively worth over £2 billion, that are distributing funds to a wide range of charitable causes.Pike explained: “Many fundraisers assume that the classic directories give a comprehensive account of all grant givers, but this is far from being the case, which is why Invisible Grantmakers reports have since 1998 reported on over 2,000 unlisted trusts. These might be relatively new trusts, or older ones that have only recently become financially active or that have changed their objects for operational reasons. All of the trusts are listed on the Charity Commission Register.”Invisible Grantmakers is compiled primarily as an aid to charities, fundraisers and researchers that are already actively raising grants from trusts and foundations, and is not for charities hoping to raise funds quickly and easily.“Trust fundraising is a skilled activity requiring considerable patience, discernment and attention to detail,” added Pike, “The fundraisers are the ones who have to do the difficult part – we are simply trying to help them by providing practically useful information.”Print copies of the limited-edition report cost £126.

Alleged Charlottesville car attacker may claim self-defense, lawyer suggests

first_imgAlbemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail(CHARLOTESVILLE, Va.) — The man who faces charges for ramming his car into a crowd during the infamous white nationalist rally that rocked Charlottesville in 2017 may claim that he did so in self-defense.Attorney John Hill told the jury pool that evidence will show James Alex Fields “thought he was acting in self-defense.”The revelation came as lawyers in Virginia are working to pick the jury that will hear the case against Fields, who faces a first-degree murder charge for killing counter-protester Heather Heyer in the incident. He also faces eight other charges relating to injuries and one relating to fleeing the scene of an accident.The 10 charges he is facing in this upcoming trial in the Charlottesville City Circuit Court are separate from the 30 federal charges he faces that relate to hate crimes. One of those federal charges is eligible for the death penalty.Fields, 21, entered a not guilty plea to the federal charges in August. Attempts by ABC News to reach Fields’ attorney were not immediately successful.The Charlottesville City Circuit Court has blocked off until Wednesday to complete jury selection and the trial can begin as soon as the jury is picked, according to Brian Wheeler, a spokesperson for the City of Charlottesville.Local newspaper The Daily Progress reports that there are 360 people in the pool of potential jurors — which it describes as the largest in recent memory.When the charges were announced, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that the federal indictments “should send a clear message to every would-be criminal in America that we aggressively prosecute violent crimes of hate that threaten the core principles of our nation.”In the case description by the U.S. Attorney’s office of the Western District of Virginia, Fields is described as having social media accounts in which he “expressed and promoted his belief that white people are superior to other races and peoples; expressed support of the social and racial policies of Adolf Hitler and Nazi-era Germany, including the Holocaust, and espoused violence against African Americans, Jewish people and members of other racial, ethnic and Religious groups he perceived to be non-white.”According to the federal indictment unsealed in late June, Fields drove from his home in Ohio to attend the “Unite the Right” rally at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, which featured white supremacist leaders, and that he joined in “chants promoting or expressing white supremacist and other anti-Semitic and racist views.”After local authorities declared the rally an “unlawful assembly” and dispersed participants, Fields, according to the indictment, returned to his car and drove to where the counter-demonstration was occurring on Fourth Street in downtown Charlottesville. Protesters were chanting and carrying signs promoting equality and denouncing racial and other forms of discrimination. With no vehicle behind him, Fields slowly reversed his vehicle to the top of a hill, according to the indictment.“Fields then rapidly accelerated, ran through a stop sign and across a raised pedestrian mall, and drove directly into the crowd, striking numerous individuals, killing Heather Heyer, and injuring many others,” the indictment alleges. “Field’s vehicle stopped only when it struck another vehicle … He then rapidly reversed his vehicle and fled the scene.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Tropical Storm Cristobal makes landfall in southeast Louisiana

first_imgABC News By DANIEL MANZO and MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News (ORLANDO, Fla.) — Tropical Storm Cristobal made landfall in Southeast Louisiana Sunday evening.The National Hurricane Center announced that the center of the storm made landfall at 6 p.m. ET along the coast of southeast Louisiana between the mouth of the Mississippi River and Grand Isle. Maximum sustained winds neared 50 mph. Throughout Sunday, the storm brought bands of heavy rain and storm surge to the northern Gulf Coast as it made its way toward the U.S. coastline.Tropical-storm-force winds lashed the Gulf Coast, from southeastern Louisiana eastward along the Alabama/Mississippi coastline. Heavy rain and areas of storm surge continued to impact the northern Gulf Coast throughout the evening.Midday Sunday, St. Bernard Parish in Louisiana warned of flooding near the Hopedale Marina, with water reportedly rising 8 inches in an hour.Storm-surge flooding was also reported in several areas of Mississippi, including along Highway 90 in Biloxi, which was closed to motorists from the Bay St. Louis to the Biloxi Bay bridges.Tornado risk remains along parts of the Gulf Coast as well. Cristobal brought eight reported tornadoes to central and northern Florida this weekend, including reports of a confirmed tornado moving through downtown Orlando Saturday. It was rated an EF-1 by the National Weather Service, with maximum winds of 105 mph.Cristobal continued inland overnight, moving up across the lower Mississippi Valley, and is expected to gradually weaken to a Tropical Depression by early Monday morning.The storm will likely bring rounds of heavy rain and the threat of flash flooding across parts of Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas throughout Monday.
