3 bargain UK tech stocks I’d buy now to beat the market

first_img Charles Heighton has no position in any shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Iomart Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 3 bargain UK tech stocks I’d buy now to beat the market Tech stocks have driven a rally in the US for the past few months so as an investor I am in interested in which UK tech stocks I’d buy to prepare for a long-term rally. I believe these small-cap tech stocks have bright futures that investors can profit from.Institutional investors agree, as all three of these stocks are at least 50% owned by a mixture of active managers. This shows that professional investors are expecting these companies to rally over the coming years.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…iomart Groupiomart Group (LSE: IOM) has two major divisions, Easyspace and Cloud Services. Easyspace provides hosting and domain services to small businesses. Meanwhile, Cloud Services targets larger companies and offers cloud computing services. Easyspace revenue has declined marginally this year, due to the nature of its clients. However, revenue in the larger Cloud Services division continues to grow organically.It’s one of the UK tech stocks I’d buy because it has a diverse and reliable customer base and the business model ensures recurring revenue. The debt level has also declined in recent years and the business has more than enough liquidity to cover all short-term liabilities. This means that iomart should be able to weather the uncertainty of this year and continue to grow going forward.Concurrent Technologies Concurrent Technologies (LSE: CNC) manufactures essential computer hardware for various industries. The company focuses on high-end products, especially boards. Its customers are based in less cyclical sectors, like defence and aerospace. This should ensure that its revenue remains relatively consistent despite the crisis. The share price has mostly recovered from the lows, but Concurrent is a very solid business, which I believe has a bright future and is still a bargain.It is the second UK tech stock I’d buy today because it has no long-term debt and a comparatively high level of cash. It also has relatively high margins and should continue to see long-term organic growth. The stock has also performed excellently in the past few years and should continue on this trajectory.SDLSDL (LSE: SDL) produces language translation tech and has four major divisions. The specifics of each division are not necessary; all you need to know is that the company has suffered little from the current crisis but the stock has still lost value. The company had no hit to revenue in the first quarter and has implemented a cost-saving plan to accommodate any second-quarter loss.SDL is a UK tech stock I’d buy because of its low level of debt, high cash balance, and solid business model. The company has very few clients in highly damaged industries like retail and travel and, as a result, should continue to grow. The share price is still 18% down from its highs earlier in the year, making this a great opportunity to buy a bargain UK tech stock.All three of these UK tech stocks that I’d buy should weather the current economic problems and continue to grow. I believe that they could offer great returns for brave investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

But instead we got nine weeks of incredible rugby, with three amazing home games and massive crowds. While this news is disappointing, we need to take a step back and be grateful for what we got, what it meant to our players, our sponsors and, most importantly, to our fans.”Super Rugby Aotearoa also featured several innovations.If a match is level after 80 minutes, the result will be decided by golden point extra-time. The first team to score – be it with a drop-goal, penalty or try – during a ten-minute period of extra-time will take the win. If neither team scores during extra-time, both teams will be awarded two points for the draw.There is a change relating to red cards too. If a player is sent off, he can be replaced by another player after 20 minutes.New Zealand Rugby head of professional rugby Chris Lendrum said: “While players should, and still will be, punished for foul play, red cards can sometimes have too much of an effect on a match.“There are no winners when a player is red-carded, but paying rugby fans, players and coaches want to see a fair contest. Replacing a player after 20 minutes strikes the right balance.”Another area being focused on is the breakdown, with referees being told to apply existing laws more strictly. The key focus points are:Ball-carriers will be allowed only one dynamic movement after being tackled.Crawling, or any secondary movement other than placing or passing, will be penalised.Tacklers will be expected to roll away immediately in the direction of the sideline. This will be a referee’s “number one priority” at the tackle.There will be “extra focus” on the offside line with defenders expected to be “clearly” onside to provide attacking teams more space.Referee manager Bryce Lawrence said: “We’re confident we’ll see a contest that is faster, fairer, safer and easier to understand.”Super Rugby Aotearoa Schedule*Kick-offs are UK & Ireland time.

This project is a rebuild of an existing post 1991 fire-storm house. Situated high on top of the Eastbay mountain range overlooking the city of Oakland, the site has unobstructed view’s toward the southwest Bay and Golden Gate. It was designed for a young family, who desired an open plan home that embraced the views of the bay and a connection to the existing garden.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe property has large redwood trees at the two longitudinal sides of the property, thus channeling ones focus from the front garden area to the to back views. The design consists of shrouding the open common space in a wood tube that connects the garden in the front to the viewing deck off the living space at the rear. Situated near the top of the mountain range, about 1800 feet above sea level the site is confronted with extreme weather and wide temperature swings. The roof of the tube form is warped out creating a large ventilation volume for the living space echoing the wisps of the coastal fog flowing inward, thus cooling the interior with the afternoon breezes. The main living space becomes the connector of the two contrasting outdoor spaces.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteWorking with the existing floor plan the design transformed the kitchen area to open out and connect to the front yard garden and forming an outdoor dining area. A concrete planter/bench was placed to further define the outdoor garden space. Opposite of the remodeled kitchen the interior dining space seamlessly opens out to the viewing deck creating one large open space and extending the roof structure as a trellis to shelter the space from the direct sun.

Why socialist countries take lead in fighting COVID-19

first_imgThis is a slightly edited version of a talk given during the“What Road To Socialism?” webinar held by Workers World Party on May 16.The coronavirus crisis has made it clear that society is run by workers. Our party is called Workers World Party precisely because those who produce the wealth of society — and make sure everybody is fed, housed and clothed — are exploited and oppressed by capitalism. They are exploited for profit and oppressed by racism, sexism and anti-LGBTQ2+ bigotry. The same capitalism that makes our lives hell keeps the rest of the planet poor as well.The promise of liberation held out by socialism has inspired millions. It has been the best path for underdeveloped countries that want to escape desperate poverty and get out from under the heel of imperialist oppression. WWP supports all countries which are resisting or are oppressed by imperialism — socialist countries especially, because they point the way forward for humanity.China leads the way I can think of no better argument for socialism than the way socialist countries have eclipsed capitalist countries by the pro-people way they have addressed the crisis. China’s response to COVID-19 was to implement a mass mobilization of every sector of society.No capitalist country dominated by anarchy and competition could pull it off. That’s why so much of the corporate media are attacking and lying about China. Outside of the corporate media bubble, China’s achievements in containing the virus have been embraced, especially by poor and oppressed nations.China has been praised by the scientific community as well. The World Health Organization called the country’s efforts “perhaps the most ambitious, agile and aggressive disease containment effort in history.” WHO is also under attack by the Trump administration.You probably know about China’s 76-day lockdown, aggressive quarantines, public temperature checks and the speed with which the coronavirus’ genome was sequenced. That was on Jan. 12, less than two weeks after China first announced the outbreak. This essential step helped the whole world develop test kits for the virus.China built two hospitals in less than two weeks, so that people with mild symptoms could be cared for, while space was freed up for those with more severe cases. This avoided the heartless triage that exists in New York City, where a person has to be practically dying to be admitted to a hospital. Sick people were turned away multiple times until they were finally admitted, only to die on a respirator. Or they weren’t admitted and died at home.Less known about China are the details of the government’s mobilization.  Thousands of military doctors and nurses were sent to Wuhan, the epicenter of the pandemic, plus tons of medical supplies. Highways were made toll-free. For those without cars, customized bus routes were set up, with tickets purchased on an app. Bus capacity was held to 50 percent.Restaurants installed pulley systems to maintain employee-customer distance. Food and fuel were delivered on a mass scale. Neighborhood committee members went door-to-door to help residents, especially older people, with shopping and medical supplies.Venezuela suspends rent!The house-to-house approach was also used in other countries struggling to build people’s power. Venezuela’s death toll, which has been much lower than in neighboring Colombia, Brazil and Ecuador, and in most other countries, was kept low by an online survey. People reported online when they had symptoms, and a doctor, often from Cuba, showed up at their house.Venezuela’s nationwide quarantine included a six-month suspension of all rent and interest payments and six months’ payment of wages by all small and midsize companies. The government banned layoffs and paid special bonuses!Cuba’s medical solidarityIn Cuba, doctors also went door-to-door and reduced new coronavirus cases to fewer than 20 a day, down from 50 a day in April. Before this crisis, Cuba already had the world’s highest ratio of doctors to population, with high life expectancy and low infant mortality rates.As it always does, socialist Cuba exported its doctors and nurses to other countries in the Caribbean, South America, Africa and Europe, including hard-hit Italy.Vietnam: no fatalitiesThe socialist government of Vietnam distributed big bags of free food in quarantined areas to help reduce panic buying and guaranteed the salaries of workers who needed to stay home in April, May and June. As of today, there are still no deaths in Vietnam, a country of 90 million people, with 1 percent of the gross domestic product of the U.S.These exemplary public health approaches take place in most of these countries, which face the hardships of Washington-imposed sanctions and constant war threats.WW supports these countries 100 percent, yet takes an independent approach in analyzing them. In China, as well as in some of the other countries,  a socialist economic base exists side-by-side with capitalist exploitation. We see that as a danger. But in the struggle between these two forces in the COVID-19 crisis, the dominant force was the Chinese Communist Party, which led a rational, planned response.With a socialist base, crucial decisions are not determined by the needs of finance capital. Under capitalism, it’s the billionaire class that is demanding the reopening of the economy, which will probably set off a second wave of infection.  Business owners want profits and don’t want to be beaten by their capitalist competitors.This report began by saying that Workers World is named for those who are exploited by capitalism. It’s also named for those who will overthrow capitalism. Build a workers’ world!Murphy (he/him) is a WWP member, an activist with the People’s MTA and the PPA/NYC, and a cartoonist for WW newspaper. He met the party in 1991 when the U.S. bombed Iraq for 42 straight days. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

IraNeda: the independent voice

first_img Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Organisation to go further April 7, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 IraNeda: the independent voice RSF_en Can you tell us about the IraNeda project and what it hopes to achieve?Mehdi Jami: IraNeda was set up as a non-profit foundation by 15 leading Iranian figures with the common goal of creating a participative satellite TV station and news website. This project is unprecedented. Run by professionals, this station and website will rely on its public, which will make a major contribution to the creation of its content.A great deal of news and information has been made available in the Persian language in recent months, in part because of the importance of the popular movement that emerged in 2009. Nonetheless, most of the media that have been created are owned by governments or depend on them. IraNeda wants to fill the need for an independent and professional news media that listens to its public. Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists March 18, 2021 Find out more June 9, 2021 Find out more Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Newscenter_img News IranMiddle East – North Africa News How does this work in practice? In what way is IraNeda different from a traditional news media?Mehdi Jami: IraNeda aims to be a media run by and for members of the Iranian diaspora and Iranians living in Iran. We want to respond to the expectations of these two categories of people. By putting them in charge of IraNeda, we are convinced that we will participate in the evolution and construction of a new Iran.Iranians have emigrated a lot during the past 30 years. There are big Iranian communities in Germany and Norway, as well as Malaysia, Australia, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. Each of them must come to terms with a different language and culture, which is an additional source of division in addition to the geographic separation.The Iranians in Iran are themselves also divided. The regime’s violence towards all dissident voices in civil society, combined with the closure and systematic persecution of outspoken news media and journalists, has resulted in divisions in public opinion.A news media that wants to address the entire Iranian community must take account of this state of affairs. This is what IraNeda aims to do by encouraging all Iranians to participate. IranMiddle East – North Africa How many people are working on the creation of the project?Mehdi Jami: IraNeda has the support of many volunteers. Our numbers vary according to needs. But there is a hard core of five to 10 people who work on the website, production of videos, fundraising and project management. IraNeda’s primary mission is to disseminate and share video content and to assemble as many contributors as possible. For our initial project, “A day in the life of Iranians,” 25 per cent of the visual content we received was sent to us from Iran.Many TV stations are available in Iran. What is IraNeda going to contribute?Mehdi Jami: The events that followed June 2009 gave rise to a major advance in media coverage in Iran and turned Iranians into “experts” in citizen journalism. IraNeda aims to capitalize on this experience. We are convinced that Iranians have the ability and the desire to participate in the media process and, in particular, to contribute to the leading Persian-language participative TV station. We are convinced that this form of media has every possibility of providing a great service to Iranian society and having a great impact because it offers everyone a place. Like its own way of operating, IraNeda will be a vehicle of modernity and democracy. Reporters Without Borders fundingReporters Without Borders provided almost 3,000 euros in funding to IraNeda in November 2010 with the twofold aim of financing the creation of its website, Iraneda.net, and helping to cover the costs of the conference that the foundation organized in London last August in order to launch the project. This action was made possible by the EU’s European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR), of which Reporters Without Borders is a beneficiary.
