We all dream of making a million pounds or more by investing in the financial markets. But it doesn’t have to be just a fantasy. Stocks guru Warren Buffett shows that, over time, it’s possible to amass a fortune from stock investing.Okay, you might not make the billions that Warren Buffett has made in his long investing career. But following some of the key tenets of his investing strategy can set you on the path to getting rich and retiring early. Indeed, adopting some of his advice following the recent stock market crash provides you with a chance to really supercharge the profits you can make from UK shares.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…Buying great-value UK sharesOne of Warren Buffett’s most legendary ideas is that of buying stocks when they slump in value. A common mistake that many investors make is following the herd. It can give us a sense of safety, sure. But when it comes to share investing, we can miss brilliant opportunities by tracking collective wisdom.During stock market crashes, many great stocks are heavily sold off along with the not-so-great. This gives eagle-eyed investors a chance to nip in and grab bargain shares, and then to watch then steadily gain value as economic conditions improve and profits rocket.However, great value isn’t necessarily reflected on paper. And this leads me onto another top Warren Buffett tip: “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price”. It’s easy to be seduced by low price-to-earnings (P/E) multiples and other key ratios following a stock market crash. It doesn’t mean that these will be the best-performing stocks over the long run, however.Another Warren Buffett gemIt can be tempting to sell your UK shares when it seems like the world is going to hell in a handcart. However, the most successful investors are ones that hold their nerve and remain confident in the stock choices they’ve made.Those individuals who make a million (or more) through investing in shares know that big profits are made over a long time horizon. And this requires great patience. As Warren Buffett says: “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago”. It can take time before you realise your rewards, sure. But thinking years ahead is a critical part of any successful investment strategy.Educate yourself!Perhaps the most critical of Warren Buffett’s is one of the most obvious. That is to make sure you educate yourself before you go buying shares. He says that “risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing”.Fortunately it’s never been easier to find the best stocks and create brilliant stock-buying strategies. There’s a wealth of information out there from trusted experts like The Motley Fool to help you make a fortune from UK shares. So now’s the time think like Buffett, do some research and go bargain hunting following the stock market crash.

Meanwhile, over five years, the stock is up a staggering 1,900%.Is this a growth stock I should consider for my own investment portfolio, or have I missed the boat? Let’s take a look at the investment case.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 Workshop: business descriptionGames Workshop is a British manufacturer of miniature wargames. The group is best known for its tabletop games Warhammer Age of Sigmar, Warhammer 40,000, The Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game and The Hobbit Strategy Battle Game.Games Workshop began its life in the UK over 30 years ago. However, today, it has direct sales operations in the UK, the US, Australia, China and Japan, with around 70% of sales coming from outside the UK. The company’s market capitalisation is currently around £3.2bn, meaning it’s a relatively large company (by UK standards) these days.Impressive financialsIts financials are certainly impressive. Take the company’s revenue growth, for example. Between FY15 and FY20, revenue rose from £119m to £270m. That represents annualised growth of just under 18%. Meanwhile net profit exploded over that period, rising from £12m to £71m.First-half results, posted in January, showed further growth. For the six months to 29 November 2020, revenue was up 26% to £186.8m while basic earnings per share increased to 226.1p from 145.9p.The company is also extremely profitable (five-year average return on equity of 57%), very cash generative, and financially strong with a robust balance sheet. All in all, this appears to be a high-quality business.Can Games Workshop’s share price keep rising?I do have some concerns about Games Workshop shares, however. One is that growth is expected to moderate next financial year (ending 31 May 2022). Analysts expect revenue growth of around 30% this year. Yet for the following year, they expect top-line growth of ‘only’ 9%. This could be upgraded, of course. However, that level of growth does seem a bit underwhelming considering that the stock currently trades on a high price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 28 and a lofty price-to-sales ratio of nine.Another concern is that regulatory filings show that late in February, Chairman Nick Donaldson’s wife sold 8,000 GAW shares (nearly £800,000 worth of stock). Before this sale, the Donaldsons owned 16,700 shares, so this sale reduced their holding significantly. This could indicate that Donaldson – who is likely to have an information advantage over the rest of us – sees the stock as fully valued at present.My view on GAW sharesOverall, there’s a lot to like about Games Workshop. The company has a great growth track record and it is very profitable.That said, I think there are other stocks that are a better fit for my portfolio right now. Given that we’re in the midst of a technology revolution, I’d rather invest in a company that’s more tech-focused.

PivotEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsDoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewText description provided by the architects. At its root, the Cloister House is a quiet refuge, a state of seclusion within the city, shared between a grandmother and her grandchildren. A finely crafted spine wall anchors the plan of the house, travelling from the front of the project to the rear. Whimsical kid-friendly elements are present, from an undulating boulder landscape to custom steel slides that run alongside the internal staircases. The hilltop site offers long views of the mountains and ocean which are balanced with shorter internally-focused views to the intimate pocket garden. Local artist, Fei Disbrow, designed a weathering steel wall sculpture + ladder surround that serve as backdrop for the pocket garden allowing filtered light to enter while providing privacy from neighbours. Materials commonly perceived as ‘cold’ were manipulated to achieve a palette of textural warmth inside and out: hand- worked masonry, charred board-form concrete walls, and blackened steel are the textural triptych which provide a sense of harbour.Save this picture!© Nic LehouxA small Laneway House (containing a dwelling unit and one-car garage) is an extension of the Cloister House. Completed after the main house, it became the final destination for unused building materials from the earlier project, such as the charred lumber. Its small size necessitated clever use of built-in storage and a singular palette of materials. With the sleeping quarters subterranean, the building is carefully carved into the sloping site to complete the cloister feel of the project as a whole, providing a naturalized green roof view back to the main house, achieving light and livability for the laneway and maintaining privacy for all users.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe overall design unites seemingly contrary characteristics: deliberate darkness, industrial materiality, organic landscape and playfulness. An article by Adele Weder in Azure Magazine referred to the project as “an architectural introversion”; buildings that “resonate with drama inside while projecting quiet modesty to the street.”Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleDECONSTRUCTION + RECYCLINGThe site was home to a 1940’s tear-down bungalow, toxic and in poor repair. Rather than demolishing the existing house in the traditional manner, Measured participated in a Pilot Project with City of Vancouver and Pacific Community Resources to sustainably deconstruct the building for salvage, recycling and reuse, employing at-risk youth as part of a job training initiative. The project exceeded the program’s goal by sorting over 90% of the resulting material for recycling or re-use, and the process imparted a positive tone and spirit to the project which were consequently influential in the fabrication of the new house. Fast + Epp Landscape: Stone installation: Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleMATERIALITY + CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUESThe Cloister House and Laneway is an essay in concrete; its applications in the project are extensive, highly varied and in some cases unprecedented. The custom steel slides flanking the staircases reference the pour chute on a concrete mixer, providing a nod to the design’s conceptual framework, a playful experience for the client’s grandchildren and a placeholder for future changing ambulatory needs. The construction team worked with a modular formwork system using shop-built 4’ x 8’ units faced with charred tongue and groove fir planks that could be easily maneuvered on site and re-used from pour to pour. The charred planks left a rustic, high-relief surface on the concrete that matured over successive pours. To jump start the construction process in advance of municipal permit approvals, assembly of the modular panels began off- site. Alongside the benefits of keeping environmental pollutants out of the neighbourhood, this innovative strategy led to a more compact construction schedule. In the spirit of upholding waste-conscious building practices, the leftover concrete from each pour was used to make rectangular stepping stones for rear yard pathways. Moreover, a portion of the planks used for the concrete formwork were re-charred and re-used as soffit panels and interior walls. The resulting look was an elegant preservation of the tools of formation alongside the finished product.Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleThe threaded form ties that pass through the exterior concrete walls double as the attachment points for removable interior panels of Venetian plaster and white oak millwork that soften the concrete shell while providing easy access to electrical wiring running behind. “The material choice also enables a hyper clean environment, essential for the client’s asthma (for this reason there is not an inch of drywall in the entire project). Above all, this is an architecture that celebrates the underrated glories of the dark and dense enclave” (Weder, 2014).Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleBetween the house and the laneway, an undulating boulder landscape appears native to the site but was carefully composed as a whimsical, kid- friendly play surface. Measured called on Japanese master stone mason Tamatsu Tongu to craft the boulder landscape and the feature walls. Together, we selected the stones from the quarry in Squamish, where Tamatsu then fashioned the rock before having it delivered to site. All of the masonry was locally sourced through Bedrock Natural Stone.Save this picture!© Andrew LatreilleProject gallerySee allShow less2016 Glenn Murcutt Master ClassWorkshopCompetition Challenges Architects to Reimagine New York’s MetLife BuildingArchitecture Competitions Share “COPY” Contractor: CopyAbout this officeMeasured ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVancouverCanadaPublished on September 22, 2015Cite: “Cloister House + Laneway / Measured Architecture” 22 Sep 2015.

first_img Telephone fundraising agency R Fundraising entered administration this week after its parent company Fundraising Initiatives Group established the telephone agency did not have a viable future, following the negative publicity over the past few months around charity fundraising and telephone fundraising in particular.The company closed for business on 28 July 2015 and was placed into administration on 3 August.99 jobs lostThe closure of R Fundraising means that 99 staff members were made redundant, 82 in Dunfermline and 17 in Manchester.These losses follow those at GoGen, a telephone fundraising agency which was criticised in national news over alleged fundraising practices and targeting of vulnerable people, and which subsequently closed last month with the loss of 485 jobs.Hamish Horton, Group Managing Director of Fundraising Initiatives Group, announced the move into administration “with deep regret”, adding that it was “not a decision that has been taken lightly”.Financial support and rescue planR Fundraising had been the newest member company of Fundraising Initiatives Group. It acquired it in January this year when it was approached with a request to support the agency that was struggling financially. Fundraising Initiatives reported “a positive first quarter” as it tried to help the agency reach a secure footing.However, the extensive national media investigation and allegations about other telephone fundraising agencies resulted in some charities pulling back from telephone fundraising. Fundraising Initiatives senior management worked with R Fundraising’s managing director Gordon Michie “to exhaust all possible options to keep the agency open”.Jon Beard of business recovery specialists Begbies Traynor, who are handling the administration process, told UK Fundraising: Advertisement  63 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Fundraising Initiatives Telephone fundraising About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

R Fundraising enters administrationcenter_img “We were instructed by the company to discuss its options after a winding-up petition was served.  It became apparent from our discussions that the company was not a viable concern as it was loss-making and heavily reliant upon significant funding from its parent group in order to meet wages and other overheads”.He added:“We therefore worked closely with the management to place the company into administration in order to allow for employee claims to be dealt with at the earliest possible time.  We continue to work closely with the company to expedite payment of employee claims from the National Insurance Fund…”Hamish Horton stated:“It is hugely disappointing that we were unable to rescue R Fundraising, its skilled and experienced fundraisers and its services to the charity sector, when our starting point was to do just that”.Group directors attended the Dunfermline and Manchester offices in person together with representatives of the administrator to notify staff of the closure and to ensure the decision and the redundancy process were explained in full.Prior notice and normal payment was not possible because of the rules of the administration process. The Group states that “all staff have been given the necessary information to be able to recover the salaries owed to them as quickly as possible by claiming through the Government’s Redundancy Payments Service via the administrator”.Support for staffIn a statement to UK Fundraising, Horton thanked “all members of staff for their hard work and loyalty to the agency”.“We are very conscious that real people with real lives are being affected, many of whom have been working with the agency for long periods, and we are deeply sorry for the unavoidable and wide reaching impact the closure will bring to staff and their families”.He added that the Board was talking to another telephone fundraising agency to support any charity clients in mid-campaign for continuity in their fundraising.

In a press release on 26 April, Reporters Without Borders had urged Zuma not to give his assent to the bill. “Jacob Zuma’s veto is a major victory for freedom of information in South Africa,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We hope the country’s parliamentarians will follow the lead set by their President and abandon the law.”More information on the POSIB bill.
