Today, the FTSE 100 enjoys a fresh injection of blood as four new companies entered the index – Avast, GVC Holdings, Homeserve, and Kingfisher.All are enjoying the attention, with their shares jumping even though the FTSE 100 index is down. The Avast (LSE: AVST) and HomeServe (LSE: HSV) share prices are up around 4%, continuing strong recent runs. They still look tempting buys to me.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…Momentum on their sideAvast calls itself “the world’s leading consumer cybersecurity company,” with 20 offices worldwide, including in London and Silicon Valley. The Czech-based company floated in London two years ago at 246p. Its share price has since doubled, trading at 525p today.Keeping people safe online is big business as the fraud threat is, unfortunately, forever. Avast’s 2016 acquisition of rival AVG turned the FTSE 100 newbie into a cybersecurity giant. It serves consumers and small businesses, and is best known for its Avast antivirus software. The Avast share price has momentum on its side, bouncing back sharply from the March crash. It now trades 60% higher than just three months ago.This FTSE 100 tech play looks an attractive growth and income stock, given current momentum and the size of the market it’s pitching at. It isn’t even that expensive, trading at 19 times earnings. You also get a dividend, with the stock yielding a decent 2.3%.The £5.4bn FTSE 100 group has almost 13m paying customers. It’s expanding into network and smart home security, and plans to grow further through targeted M&A.Avast boasts high barriers to entry and strong competitive moats, while its subscription-based business model offers high cash and revenue visibility. The coronavirus pandemic should have little impact, as people are more dependent on their screens than ever, while fraudsters are more active.As more established FTSE 100 names struggle, I would suggest turning your attention to the new and fast-growing kid on the block.I’d buy this FTSE 100 stock tooHome emergency repairs company HomeServe is another FTSE 100 new entry that’s looking to accelerate growth. Its share price has also jumped 60% in just three months. Over five years, it’s up an impressive 200%.

The one sticking point is that it is expensive, trading at around 30 times earnings. That shows just how well the HomeServe share price has done, and how highly investors rate its prospects.You won’t find many better growth stocks on the FTSE 100 than these two right now. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Harvey Jones Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Olly Barkley sparks Elektrik youth

first_imgBarkley plans to bring in residential camps next year and is running his first KICK Elektrik camp in August for those aged 14 to 18, with Ireland’s kicking guru Mark Tainton. By signing up to the newsletter and putting ‘KICK’ after your name, you could receive one of the 30 free places on the camp.Prices for his coaching camps this year range from £59 to £159 for one-, two- or three-day camps – and he is offering Rugby World readers a 20% discount – simply enter the code RW20 when booking at elektrik3.com.The dates and venues are:20, 21 & 22 July Colston’s School, Bristol LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Branching out: Olly Barkley has enjoyed developing his Elektrik 3 coaching campsBATH’S OLLY BARKLEY is still only 30 so is sure to have a good few years left playing professional rugby, but he is already planning for life post-retirement. The centre has set up Elektrik Events and plans to branch out into music and other sports, but for now the focus is on his rugby camps for children aged eight to 16.So what makes the Olly Barkley Rugby Academy different from other coaching camps? For a start, his standing means he is able to call on star names like Lewis Moody, Chris Ashton, Freddie Burns and Matt Banahan to help with the coaching and take part in Q&As.Interestingly, he picks players who fit with his rugby aesthetic, saying: “The rugby we try to push at the camps is to look for space and not be scared to take people on.”Crowd pleaser: Lewis Moody signs autographsAnother big focus of the camps is nutrition – and he educates parents as well as children. “I was seeing kids pull out packed lunches with all sorts of nasty things in them, so I decided I wanted a bigger focus arounda nutrition programme, even if it meant cutting back on profits,” he says.“I got advice from Matt Lovell, the England nutritionist, on menus. We’re not going to get egg whites down their necks, but we wanted to produce a healthy menu they wouldn’t turn their noses up at and then educate them on why and what they’re eating.”Barkley’s aim is for the coaching camps to be a “professional experience” and they take in key areas like recovery, but he also wants them to be fun.He says: “It’s nice to see kids have a good time with something you’ve worked so hard at. The feedback we’ve had is humbling. It’s good to know that the product works and the kids say they’re taking things back to their clubs too.”center_img 28, 29 & 30 July Chippenham RFC24, 25 & 26 October Moulsford, Oxfordlast_img read more

Elsom punch and McCarthy red card as Connacht win

first_imgTuesday Oct 7, 2008 Elsom punch and McCarthy red card as Connacht win Connacht sprung the surprise upset of the Magners League season so far as they heroically beat defending champions Leinster at the Galway Sportsgrounds on Sunday night. The loss for the champions may well dent their hopes of retaining the title, as they went down 19-18 to the courageous Connacht.Fly half Ian Keatley, formerly of Leinster, kicked four penalties as well as the conversion of the lone Mike McCarthy try. The confidence gained was immense, particularly considering the recent mauling they received at the hands of the Cardiff Blues.Five minutes into the second half the homeside came up with an inspired bit of play that began deep in their own half. Mike McCarthy was in support of the Sean Cronin offload, as he dived underneath the posts to complete a fantastic try.As Connacht grabbed McCarthy in celebration, a scuffle broke out as Leo Cullen seemed to be the instigator, with an elbow on Keatley. Whether it was accidental or not, it led to try scorer McCarthy leading with his head into Wallaby Rocky Elsom. Elsom retaliated with a punch, and both players received yellow cards.It was McCarthys second yellow, so he got a red, meaning his night was over seconds after his great try.Jonathan Sexton pushed a late dropgoal attempt wide, as Connacht held on despite the numerical advantage, achieving their first win over Irish opposition since December 2005.

The official news agency SANA said he was killed by “terrorists” while the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said he was shot by rebels who accused him of belonging to a pro-government “shabbiha” militia. The Syrian Journalistic Association (SJA) quotes the Syria Stamp network as saying one of its members, the citizen-journalist Hozan Abdel Halim Mahmoud, was killed while filming clashes between the rebel Free Syrian Army and a militia operated by the Democratic Union Party (PYD), a Kurdish party, in Ras Al-Ain, in the northeastern province of Al-Hasaka, on 20 November. Mahmoud had been very active covering demonstrations in the nearby city of Qamishli. Abed Khalil, the president of Ras Al-Ain’s Kurdish municipal council, was meanwhile killed by a Free Syrian Army sniper during clashes on 19 November. Khalil was a journalist by profession.Mohammed Al-Khalid, a citizen-journalist from Homs, was executed by the Diraa Al-Shahba Brigade’s Namr Battalion in Aleppo on 18 November for repeatedly criticizing the battalion’s actions in the city.The SJA also reports that Abdullah Hassan Kaake, a citizen-journalist, died under torture by military intelligence personnel in Aleppo on 17 November. Two of his brothers – Abdel Ghani, another citizen-journalist, and Ahmed Kaake – have already been killed since the start of the uprising in Syria.According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, at least 15 journalists and 41 citizen-journalists have been killed in connection with their journalistic activities since the start of the armed conflict.Two other citizen-journalists have been killed by shells in the past week.
