The coronavirus pandemic caused a stock market crash in the UK with the FTSE 100 falling sharply in March and still trading nearly 20% off its year’s high. But it seems no one told investors in Croda International (LSE: CRDA). The share price closed on Thursday night fractionally above 5,700p at an all time high. This is despite posting a fall in first-half profit and revenue.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…So, what is making this share seemingly immune from the stock market crash and the coronavirus pandemic? Let’s take a closer look.Stock market crash: How is trading?The FTSE 100 constituent is split into four markets: personal care, life sciences, performance technologies, and industrial chemicals.  Performance technologies is coatings, polymers, lubricants, and additives. Life sciences is disease prevention, crop management, health care, and seed protection. And personal care is beauty products, vaccines, and drug delivery.Ultimately Croda is a specialist chemicals company, which is a regulated area. This affords a degree of protection from competitors. But it doesn’t make the company immune from the stock market crash.In financial results for the first six months, revenue declined 5.8% and pre-tax profit 12.8% versus the same period last year.Industrial chemicals performed poorly in the first half of the year with sales tanking 17.3%. But sales were down across the board. Personal care declined 8.1%, performance technologies 4.6%, and life sciences 0.8%.Worryingly, the firm also announced that although trading had stabilised, future revenue recovery was unclear.Trading on past glories?Croda has an impressive history. An investment in July 2010 would have returned 550%. The company is one of only 14 left in the FTSE 100 to increase its dividend for 10 years in a row.While a dividend yield of 1.58% is not huge, if you had held that same investment from July 2010, the dividend would now yield 8.7%.The company announced on Thursday that the interim dividend would be held at 39.5p. This keeps alive the hope of another year of dividend growth. Croda also regularly issues special dividends, although that is less likely this year.To complement organic growth, there is a history of acquisitions. Earlier this month, its life sciences sector bought Avanti, which specialises in high-purity polar lipids, for $260m. These are used in next-generation drug vaccines.Immune from the stock market crash?My Foolish colleague Michael Baxter sees potential in Croda’s life sciences division. And the firm has a strong balance sheet. This is important in tough economic trading conditions. But I see a lot of growth already priced in here.After falling sharply in March, the share price has been on a charge, and the price-to-earnings ratio is now topping 30. This looks expensive to me for a company whose revenue and profit have been flat since 2017. First-half financials were hardly encouraging either, with profit falling in every division.The resilience from the stock market crash is impressive, but personally I’m failing to see why. I think there is considerable downside if earnings targets are missed or if the dividend growth run comes to an end later this year. I’m looking elsewhere for investments.

3 UK growth stocks I’d invest £1,000 in today

Enter Your Email Address The company said: “Our strong balance sheet, leading technology, and diversified customer base leaves GBG well-positioned for long-term success.”GB Group currently trades on a trailing P/E ratio of 33.5. I also see the stock as a ‘buy’ at that valuation.Online fashion championFinally, I also like the look of online clothing retailer ASOS (LSE: ASC), despite the fact the stock has enjoyed a strong run recently.ASOS issued a decent trading statement in mid-July. For the four months to 30 June, group sales were up 10% to £1,014m. Meanwhile, active customers increased 16% year-on-year. The company advised it’s “on track to deliver strong year-on-year profit growth.”ASOS shares are quite expensive. Using next year’s EPS consensus of 79.9, the stock trades on a forward P/E of 54. That valuation adds risk.However, in my view, the valuation isn’t a deal-breaker. Brokers are currently upgrading their EPS forecasts and also lifting their share price targets. RBC, for example, just raised its price target from 4,000p to 5,000p.In today’s digital world, I think ASOS is well-placed to succeed. I’d buy this UK growth stock today.

A 5% rise in assets under administration to £104bn There’s an awful lot of economic uncertainty at present. Just last week, the Bank of England said the UK economy is facing its worst annual decline in 99 years.I wouldn’t let this uncertainty stop you from investing however. Right now, there are plenty of companies generating strong results and seeing their share prices move higher as a result.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…Here, I’ll highlight three UK growth stocks I believe have the potential to climb higher in the months and years ahead. If you’ve £1,000 to invest right now, I think these growth stocks are worth a look.A top FTSE 100 growth stockThe first is Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE: HL), the largest investment platform in the UK.There are a few reasons I like the look of Hargreaves right now. Firstly, since the lockdown started, savings levels in the UK have soared. I think it’s likely some of this money will flow into stocks and funds. Secondly, American financial services company Robinhood has just scrapped its UK launch. This means one potential avenue of competition has disappeared. Last week, Hargreaves also issued a strong set of full-year results. Highlights for the year ended 30 June included:center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Profit, before tax, was up 40% Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA 3 UK growth stocks I’d invest £1,000 in today Adjusted basic EPS increased 20% It’s also worth pointing out the company lifted its full-year dividend by a huge 31% to 54.9 pence per share. That dividend increase suggests the company is confident about the future. Overall, I see plenty of investment appeal here. HL shares currently trade on a trailing P/E ratio of about 28. At that valuation, I see the stock as a ‘buy’.Exciting tech stockAnother UK growth stock I’m bullish on is GB Group (LSE: GBG). It’s a tech company that uses advanced technologies, such as machine learning and facial recognition, to verify people’s identities. Currently, it has the ability to verify over 4bn people worldwide. GB Group has a strong track record when it comes to growth. Full-year results, issued at the end of June, showed the company has plenty of momentum right now: Image source: Getty Images.

Popularizing legacy of South African leader

first_imgThe film “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” is based upon an autobiography of the same name released by Nelson Mandela in 1995, during his second year as president of South Africa.In the book’s introduction, Mandela reports that he started to write his life story while detained at Robben Island prison in 1974. He later smuggled out a preliminary draft of the manuscript, but it was not completed until his release and ascendancy to the leadership of the first non-racial government in South Africa, led by the African National Congress. Mandela shares that after his release from prison in 1990 he was so consumed with reorganizing the ANC into a political party that he had very little time for writing. He led negotiations for the transfer of power from the racist Nationalist Party and won the 1994 elections.Mandela’s death on Dec. 5, 2013, resulted in what was perhaps the most widely covered series of memorials and eulogies in media history. “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” continues this process, and will of course be subjected to various interpretations and assessments of the film’s accuracy and the artistic depiction of his legacy.Starring as Mandela is Idris Elba, an African-British actor who was born in London in 1972 of parents from Ghana and Sierra Leone. Elba won a Golden Globe award for his performance in the BBC One series “Luther,” and has appeared in numerous films, including “American Gangster” (2007), “Daddy’s Little Girls” (2007) and “Prometheus” (2011). Elba’s posture and voice in the film are very reminiscent of the South African leader’s.Naomie Melanie Harris does a fine job in portraying Winnie Nomzana Madikizela-Mandela, Mandela’s second wife and comrade in the ANC. Harris is a Caribbean-British actor born in 1976 to parents from Jamaica and Trinidad, both former British colonies. She has had a distinguished acting career, portraying Selena in the post-apocalyptic film “28 Days Later” and Tia Dalma/Calypso in the second and third installments of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. She also co-starred in the 23rd James Bond film, “Skyfall.”Lacks important aspects of Mandela’s lifeAlthough the film lasts for two hours and 19 minutes, it leaves out important aspects of the rich history of Mandela’s life and merges several distinct phases of the struggle against European settler-­colonialism.It takes the viewer from the birth of Mandela in 1918 in the village of Umvezo, in the Transkei region of the Eastern Cape, through his law practice and ANC work in Johannesburg during the 1940s. In the 1950s, Mandela is shown playing a leading role in the Defiance Against Unjust Laws Campaign. The breakup of his first marriage and his meeting and matrimonial union with Winnie Nomzamo Madikizela from Pondoland, also in the Eastern Cape, are portrayed.Mandela and his comrades in the ANC are shown devising their highly politicized defense strategy for the Rivonia Treason Trial of 1964, in which they escaped the death penalty only to wind up being sentenced to life in prison.By the mid-1970s, youth and students in the urban areas had reignited the movement, paying the ultimate price in many cases. A new generation of organizers was later sentenced to Robben Island and began to interact with the older leaders from the 1950s and 1960s. Eventually the Rivonia political prisoners were transferred to Pollsmoor prison under better conditions.During the last years of Mandela’s incarceration he was held at a single-family home in an upscale area in the Cape and allowed family visits. He eventually opened up discussions on the future of South Africa with apartheid governmental officials, initially raising grave concerns from his fellow political prisoners and the ANC leadership in Zambia.By the time Mandela and other leaders from the trial were released, the ANC had reemerged as the dominant organizational force in South Africa.A segment of the film illustrates Mandela’s refusal to accept conditional release under the regimes of Pieter Willem Botha and Frederik Willem de Klerk. The arduous process, after Mandela’s release, of political organizing and reversing the racist regime’s derailment of the liberation struggle is covered in a very generalized fashion.By late 1993, the date for elections is set and the ANC is elected to the new parliament and the presidency by a wide majority.This film is the latest contribution in a series of depictions of Mandela and the liberation movement in South Africa. Future feature films will hopefully take up the role of the South African Communist Party, the organized African working class, the Indian Congress, mixed-race communities, the Frontline States, the Organization of African Unity, and support for the anti-apartheid struggle from such socialist countries as the Soviet Union, the German Democratic Republic and Cuba, as well as the international solidarity movement in Europe and North America in the overall anti-apartheid struggle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
