Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Today’s trading update from promising small-cap growth share Tristel (LSE: TSTL) hammered the price. As I write, the stock changes hands around 12% lower, at 409p. Is this a buying opportunity?Meanwhile, it’s no secret in the investing community that Tristel has so far been a huge success story, both operationally and for its shareholders. Indeed, sales of the firm’s infection prevention and contamination control products have soared. And that’s driven some impressive numbers. For example, over the past five years, revenue has grown by almost 100%, earnings have increased by around 125%, and cash flow is about 120% higher.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…A well-balanced growth shareThat looks like well-balanced growth underlined by the fact that the company carries zero debt. And the directors have transferred some of that success to shareholders. The dividend is up around 124% since 2015. But the biggest boost to shareholder returns has arrived via the share price. Even after today’s decline, it’s still about 330% up over five years.And I think that rocketing share price may be one reason for the stock’s weakness today. As well as operational progress, the share’s uptrend was driven by a valuation re-rating. Indeed, the forward-looking earnings multiple for the current trading year to June 2021 sits near 33. Compared to growth forecasts that rating looks well up with events, to me.Meanwhile, today’s update was encouraging in many ways. It covers the full trading year to 30 June. And like many businesses, Tristel was affected by the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic.Medical device decontamination products generated 80% of global sales in the eight-month period to 28 February. But sales eased off when Covid-19 hit because hospitals worldwide postponed most patient appointments so they could cope with the pandemic.Meanwhile, until February, hospital surface disinfection products produced around 9% of sales for Tristel. But sales in this area surged when hospitals stepped up cleaning to combat Covid-19.Overall, the outcome was good for the business. COVID-19 caused a temporary reduction of £0.5m in medical device decontamination product sales. But that was offset by a £2m increase in sales of hospital surface disinfection products.Ahead of market expectationsThe directors reckon the financial outcome for the year has come in “ahead of market expectations.” Turnover is up around 21% compared to the prior year, and adjusted pre-tax profit is around 21% higher also.Looking ahead, chief executive Paul Swinney reckons the higher sales momentum of the past four months will only continue if hospitals can return to pre-Covid-19 levels of patient throughput. And if they maintain the intensity of their cleaning and disinfection routines.However, the directors think the UK “might lag behind” other markets when it comes to building up patient throughput. And that’s significant because it represents around 35% of the company’s global medical device decontamination sales.Nevertheless, the directors are “cautiously optimistic” for the current financial year and beyond. I reckon today’s down-move in the stock is rational and blows off some of the froth from the valuation. And I’d be looking to buy the shares on dips and down-days because of the ongoing international growth story. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The Anatomy of Fear Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 No matter what the future holds for Irma’s path and intensity, the NHC advises, “Everyone in hurricane-prone areas should ensure that they have their hurricane plan in place, as we are now near the peak of the season.”Forecast: Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Cuba, BahamasLeeward IslandsIrma is expected to make its closest pass to the Leeward Islands late Tuesday through Wednesday and will likely be an intense hurricane at that time, possibly still a Category 4.Hurricane-force winds (74-plus mph) are expected within the hurricane warning area of the Leeward Islands by Tuesday night, and tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) are expected by late Tuesday.Preparations should be rushed to completion in the Leeward Islands at this time.The exact strength of the winds will be dependent on the path of Irma’s circulation center near the Leeward Islands.Major wind damage can be expected if the eyewall of Irma cruises through the Leeward Islands, including Saint Martin and Anguilla. Storm-surge flooding, high surf and rip currents will also be dangers, and heavy rain could contribute to flooding and mudslides, as well.The NHC says that a storm surge of 6 to 9 feet above normal tide levels is possible in the extreme northern Leeward Islands near and north of where the center tracks.Rainfall totals in the Leeward Islands may total 3 to 6 inches, with locally 10 inches in spots. U.S. Forecast: Watching Florida, Southeast CloselyIt is too soon to speculate on the specifics surrounding the U.S. threat from Irma, but the hurricane is forecast to remain powerful as it draws closer to Florida later this week.As mentioned before, the vast majority of the forecast guidance indicates Irma will begin to turn more to the north by this weekend. The strength and expansiveness of the Bermuda-Azores high over the Atlantic Ocean and the timing, depth and location of a southward dip in the jet stream near the eastern U.S. will dictate where that northward turn occurs.(MORE: Why the U.S. Forecast is Uncertain)For now, all residents along the Southeast coast and eastern Gulf Coast, including Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, should monitor the progress of Irma closely.The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its advisory late Monday afternoon that the chances of Irma affecting parts of Florida later this week or this weekend are increasing. In addition, rough surf and dangerous boating conditions will exist throughout the southeastern U.S. coastline by late week.Destructive winds, storm-surge inundation, pounding surf and heavy rainfall could all be potential threats from Irma in the southeast U.S. Determining where those impacts will occur and how serious they may be is too early to determine. For the next five days, Irma will move west, then west-northwest on the south side of a ridge of high pressure called the Bermuda high, centered in the central Atlantic.(INTERACTIVE MAP: Track Irma)By this weekend, Irma will begin to turn north in the direction of a departing southward dip in the jet stream that will set up in the eastern United States. Where that northward turn occurs will be critical for what impacts Irma may bring to parts of the southeastern United States.Here’s a general overview of the timing for impacts from Irma into this weekend.Potential Impact TimingLeeward Islands: Late Tuesday-WednesdayPuerto Rico/Virgin Islands: Wednesday-ThursdayDominican Republic/Haiti: Thursday-FridayTurks and Caicos: Thursday-FridayBahamas: Friday-this weekendCuba: Friday-this weekendSoutheast United States: This weekend into early next week (possibly as early as Friday in South Florida) Current Storm StatusThe highest cloud tops, corresponding to the most vigorous convection, are shown in the brightest red colors. Clustering, deep convection around the center is a sign of a healthy tropical cyclone. Hurricane warnings have been issued for portions of the Leeward Islands. This includes Antigua, Barbuda, Anguilla, Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis, Saba, St. Eustatius, Sint Maarten, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy.A hurricane watch is in effect for Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra, the Virgin Islands and Guadeloupe.In addition, a tropical storm warning has been issued for Guadeloupe, and a tropical storm watch is in effect for Dominica. From the Weather Channel Hurricane warnings have been issued for portions of the Leeward Islands, and a hurricane watch is in effect for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.Irma will move close to the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico into midweek, and then near Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos, Cuba and the Bahamas late week into this weekend.This weekend into early next week, Irma will turn north and likely impact a portion of the U.S. coastline.It’s too soon to know exactly what impacts to expect in the U.S. and where they will occur, but the chances of Irma impacting Florida are increasing.Hurricane Irma is a growing threat to the continental United States, with impacts possibly beginning in Florida later this week. Before that, Irma will bring dangerous conditions to the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Bahamas and Cuba.Below is everything we know about Irma right now, including its latest status, along with potential forecast impacts in the U.S. and the Caribbean Islands.Irma’s Latest Status, TimingThe center of Irma is located about 450 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving westward at about 13 mph.Irma has strengthened to a Category 4 hurricane, and satellite imagery shows that it has become better organized in the past day with an eye now clearly evident. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.Low wind shear, increased mid-level moisture and ample oceanic-heat content favor that Irma will remain a major hurricane (Category 3 or stronger) for the next several days, though some intensity fluctuations are likely at times.(LATEST NEWS: Florida Governor Declares State of Emergency Ahead of Possible Hurricane Irma Strike)One potential inhibitor of Irma maintaining its intensity would be if the hurricane’s core interacts with land as it cruises westward near the Greater Antilles later this week.

Kiev regime’s Azov Battalion.The U.S. government says it is discussing — if it is not already a done deal — sending $3 billion in heavy arms to the Kiev government in Ukraine, which was installed by a U.S.-inspired coup last February. Sending these weapons will, at a minimum, bring more suffering to millions of people in Ukraine.Ukraine used to be a republic of the Soviet Union and most of the people in the east speak Russian. At a maximum, more U.S. intervention could provoke a war with Russia, with the unspeakable suffering and destruction that could entail. This must be stopped.Workers World has supported the resistance movements of the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics, located in southeastern Ukraine. The working people in the resistance are volunteers, defending their territory from the Kiev regime’s offensive. They have popular support and have recently been making gains.The Kiev government was put in power by a coup backed by U.S. and European Union imperialism and depends on openly fascist and neo-Nazi militias. This regime plans to join NATO and accept NATO bases that would provoke Russia. This is a threat to working people in both Ukraine and Russia, and the people of southeastern Ukraine know it and will fight.Bad enough that the U.S. Congress has voted for sanctions against Russia, but those pushing hardest for weapons aid are unelected, active and retired officials — mercenary war-mongers. A Feb. 2 New York Times article reports that Joint Chiefs Chair Martin Dempsey and NATO military commander General Philip Breedlove are now urging military aid. Apparently the military brass are now openly making U.S. foreign policy.Add to the two generals eight “think-tank” militarists in the Chicago Council, who have just released a report demanding weapons for Kiev. Led by Strobe Talbott, the eight are all anti-communist intellectuals who built Cold War careers battling the Soviet Union. Unsatisfied by the collapse of the USSR and the privatization of the economy that followed, they now advocate U.S. policies to destroy Russia as a potential competitor.We call upon all progressive and anti-war people in the United States to reject these war-mongers and fight against any delivery of U.S. military aid to the Kiev regime’s conscripted army in Ukraine. Demonstrate this opposition in social media, in assemblies and in the streets. Spread these opinions and publicize these actions to progressive and anti-war forces in all NATO countries.Don’t let them put your world at risk. Tell Obama if he wants to spend $3 billion, use it to bail out and rebuild Detroit. For starters.No U.S. arms to Ukraine!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
News ChinaAsia – Pacific June 2, 2021 Find out more China’s Cyber Censorship Figures Follow the news on China News Photo : plsreadthetruth.wordpress.com News March 12, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific Organisation China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Reporters Without Borders is appalled to learn that Du Bin, a Beijing-based documentary filmmaker and former New York Times photographer, has been held incommunicado since 31 May.A newly-completed a documentary by Du Bin about a labour camp for women in Masanjia, in the northeastern province of Liaoning, was released in Hong Kong on 1 May. Entitled “Above the Ghosts’ Heads: The Women of Masanjia Labour Camp,” the film is banned in mainland China.“The Chinese authorities must give their reasons for arresting Du Bin and holding him incommunicado, and must end his illegal detention,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The use of such harsh methods and the failure to provide solid grounds for his arrest suggest that this is a reprisal for his success in documenting the torture, humiliation and inhuman and degrading treatment of women at Masanjia labour camp.”Many of the labour camp’s detainees are members of Falun Gong, a banned spiritual movement that the Chinese Communist Party has been trying to crush for more than a decade.After the film’s release, the police stepped up their surveillance of Du Bin and assigned plain-clothes officers to tail him. He was editing more interviews with former Masanjia detainees at the time of his arrest, just four days before the 24th anniversary of the bloody crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square on 4 June 1989.The run-up to the anniversary was marked by the arrests of netizens such as Gu Yinmin, who was placed in “criminal detention” on 1 June for refusing to remove a photograph of the 1989 pro-democracy movement from his QQ account. Two other netizens, Qiu Hua and Yang Ting Jian, are serving 15-day “administrative” detention orders in Guangzhou for trying to organize an Internet tribute to the victims of the 1989 crackdown.There have been clear signs of an increase in harassment of independent news providers since Xi Jinping’s installation as president in March. Sun Lin, a journalist who reports for the overseas Chinese website Boxun, was arrested on 16 April for distributing video footage of a protest against his daughter’s expulsion from her school. He ended up being held for 15 days under an administrative detention order later reclassified as “criminal detention.”China is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet” and is ranked 173rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.It is also named in the 2013 special report on surveillance, “Enemies of the Internet” – China. to go further June 10, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Beijing-based documentary filmmaker held incommunicado Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News
