I’d buy this small-cap growth stock for my Stocks and Shares ISA now

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended ASOS and Tracsis. 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. I mostly invest in dividend stocks these days, especially in my Stocks and Shares ISA. But the younger growth investor in me sometimes re-emerges when I see a tempting prospect. I think I see one now in Tracsis (LSE: TRCS). So what does it do?The AIM-listed company provides software-based technology to the transport industry. And it seems to be a bit of a leader, with an enviable reputation. The company counts Network Rail and the Department of Transport (DoT), along with other government agencies, among its customers.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…AIM for a Stocks and Shares ISA?Before I go further, I want to touch briefly on AIM, the Alternative Investment Market. Some investors will be wary, as it has looser regulation than the main LSE markets. That’s a boon to smaller companies due to lower costs, but AIM is also where too many dodgy firms over the years have ended up burning shareholders. In fact, in the early days, the rules didn’t even allow us to put AIM shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA.Saying that, we can find some top growth shares on AIM too. Like ASOS with a market cap of more than £4bn. Couple that with a presumption that Tracsis will have had to live up to government standards to get the DoT contract, and I have no AIM-based fears.Full-year resultsSo back to Tracsis, and its full-year results released Thursday. Revenue dipped slightly, to £48m from £49.2m. The firm reckons Covid-19 hit revenues to the tune of around £10m, mostly in the Traffic & Data Services division. That division includes large events and data collection projects within its remit, and many of those were canceled or postponed.Adjusted EBITDA came in flat at £10.5m, but pre-tax profit did fall. We saw a drop from £6.6m in 2019 to £4.1m. Fully diluted earnings per share (EPS) fared better, with a modest dip from 27.42p to 23.66p. Tracsis ended the year with £17.9m in cash, so there doesn’t seem to be any liquidity problem. And liquidity is a key factor in my Stocks and Shares ISA choices.The second half has obviously hit the company’s growth expectations. But at the halfway stage to the end of January, just weeks before the pandemic overwhelmed us, growth was strong. Revenue was up 41%, with adjusted EBITDA up 23%. I see that as underlying strength, which I value in a Stocks and Shares ISA.Growth and dividendsWith the coronavirus downturn in full swing, Tracsis wisely decided to defer its interim dividend pending later review. Well, there’s not going to be a dividend now.But I think that’s fine. And I reckon there’s every reason to expect dividends to get back on track next year. It’s not a lot of cash to do without anyway, as the dividend had only been yielding 0.3%. So, not my typical Stocks and Shares ISA pick by a long way.But even though the dividend has been modest, Tracsis has already implemented a progressive strategy. At this stage in a growth company’s life, I rate that as a very positive thing. I see Tracsis as a strong growth buy today, hopefully blossoming into a rewarding income stock in years to come.

Five reasons the pressure is on the All Blacks ahead of the Third Test

first_imgThe All Blacks are in the unfamiliar position of going into the Third Test on the back of a loss and they know the onus is on them to right the wrongs from Wellington Momentum shiftBottling momentum in sport is a precious commodity. Before and after the First Test, it was the All Blacks who gave off an insouciant, laid-back air. If there was an edge during training – in public at least – it was hard to pick up. In essence, the All Blacks emitted a low-level confidence borne out of winning 46 games at home, and only three losses in three years.Momentum shift: The Lions have renewed belief after sneaking the win in WellingtonThat all changed on Saturday evening in Wellington, where despite having the fairly large caveat that they were shorn of a man for 55-minutes, they still lost after edging into a nine-point cushion with 21 minutes left on the clock. The fact the Lions were able to claw their way back into the game, and finish with a flurry, will ensure the momentum is with them as we enter the final week of the tour.Midfield conundrumHow the New Zealand public hark back to the days of stability in midfield. Nearly a decade with the ultra-reliable Conrad Smith and explosive Ma’a Nonu, provided some yin and yang to the No 12 and 13 shirt and that all-important, balance. In the space of two games, the All Blacks have lost both first-choice centres. Ryan Crotty pulled up lame in the first Test with a hamstring tear and is a big doubt for the Auckland decider, and Sonny Bill Williams has four weeks to deal with the ignominy of being the first All Black to be sent off in 50 years.In from the cold: Malakai Fekitoa could be parachuted straight back into the starting line-upThe rapid recall of rumoured Toulon-target Malakai Fekitoa points to a reprisal of the Lienert-Brown-Fekitoa partnership we saw in last year’s Rugby Championship, especially with the squat, explosive Ngani Laumape only having 55 minutes of Test experience in his locker. Saturday could be an occasion tried and tested combinations.Lions finding beliefIn recent days, the Lions have confounded the critics – and they’ve been queuing up out here in New Zealand. They were widely backed to be on the end of a humiliating 3-0 Blackwash, but their 24-21 victory at the Westpac pointed to a side not ready to be written off. Warren Gatland’s astute selection paid off, with Owen Farrell and Johnny Sexton’s varied distribution causing the All Blacks problems. “The Lions need to score at least four tries a game if they are to have a chance of beating the All Blacks.” That was the common consenus before the tour, but two games into the Series, the Lions lead the All Blacks, four tries to three. In Wellington, the Lions kept the All Blacks scoreless for the first time since 1998, and for all the vim and vigour shown by Reiko Ioane in the first Test, he had a much tougher time in the second Test, spilling the ball late on and looking vulnerable defensively.Rich potential: For all his undoubted talent, Reiko Ioane is still learningLikewise, Waisake Naholo looked a millions dollars going forward but vulnerable when he was turned. With Israel Dagg smarting from being bumped by Taulupe Faletau, Hansen will to toy with re-introducing Julian Savea for some experience and proven firepower. TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Fight of flight: The All Blacks know they can’t make mistakes against an improving Lions side On the front foot: Sean O’Brien was part of an improved performance up frontUp front, too, the response from the tight five to an underwhelming First Test was uncompromising. With the balance in the backrow seemingly found with the introduction of Sam Warburton, there’s no reason the Lions can’t continue to build on promising combinations. Add to that, a largely unused bench from Wellington and you have lashings of untapped energy.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREPressure on the hostsThe New Zealand public are notoriously unforgiving after a loss, which is unsurprising because it hardly ever happens – especially on home soil. Sean Fitzpatrick told the story of not being able to set foot outside for three days and Kieran Read, himself, just back from injury, will be feeling the weight of expectation on his broad shoulders in the coming days.Big expectations: Steve Hansen is keeping calm but he knows nothing less than victory will be acceptedWith the media and public expecting, nay demanding, a convincing Series win, Steve Hansen’s men know they dare not slip up, and if the scores are tight as we enter the final quarter, many would argue it will be the hosts who will be feeling the heat, something Steve Hansen alluded to earlier. “The big thing about when you lose is that it’s painful isn’t it? It sharpens the mind, it sharpens the attitude. You look at things probably a little deeper than you normally do.” There will be no margin for error.Selection posers out-widelast_img read more

Female church leaders of color urge more anti-racism action in…

first_img Featured Jobs & Calls Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY [Episcopal News Service] As the United States celebrated Independence Day under the clouds of illness and injustice, three influential leaders in The Episcopal Church published an open letter to the church questioning exactly whose freedom the country and the church were celebrating, and pushing for extensive internal and external anti-racist action.That action, the letter says, should “free ourselves institutionally and individually of that which stands between us and the dream of God: Whiteness itself.”The letter, titled “Speaking of Freedom,” was written by the Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, dean of Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary; the Rev. Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and stewardship of creation; and the Rev. Winnie Varghese, a priest at Trinity Church Wall Street in New York.The three priests, all women of color, used the church’s celebration of Independence Day as a feast day – including a collect that offers thanksgiving for the founders who “won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn” – as the basis for a discussion of how the church should respond when freedom is not granted to all. The letter also references Frederick Douglass’ speech “What to a Slave is the Fourth of July?” in which the former slave criticized America’s – and American Christians’ – celebration of liberties that were withheld from Black people.“We must ask what is the meaning of freedom in such a time as this, when the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately ravages Black, Brown and First Nations communities suffering the preexisting conditions of injustice and inequality?” the letter asks. “What is the meaning of freedom, when Black bodies continue to be brutalized by policing that has its roots in slave patrols? What is freedom when our Breonnas are not safe in their homes, our Ahmauds are not safe jogging, and our Erics, Elijahs and Georges cry out, ‘I can’t breathe’?”The letter lays out a vision for a different kind of freedom for the church to embrace – one that is “more than a song we sing or a flag we wave.” The church, the letter asserts, must claim freedom “from America’s original sin: White supremacy.” That freedom requires truth-telling, transformative letting-go, being born from above and living into baptism, the priests wrote. That vision, Spellers said, aligns with the Becoming Beloved Community initiative, which has expressed the church’s long-term commitment to racial justice since 2017 and calls for truth-telling by churches, anti-racism formation, and advocacy to “repair the breach.” The writers felt an urgent need to focus on such commitments at this pivotal moment in history.The U.S. faces intertwined crises that have commanded the world’s attention: More than 130,000 Americans have died of COVID-19, with Black and Latino Americans being affected at higher rates than white Americans. At the same time, the Black Lives Matter movement has shone a spotlight on systemic racism, as seen in everything from racial disparities in health care to the killing of George Floyd, with protests continuing around the world.In an interview with Episcopal News Service, Douglas called it a “kairos moment” – a “moment of disruption and chaos, but a moment that is pregnant with possibilities and pregnant with the movement of God.“And you can miss the moment or you can seize it,” Douglas said.The letter also presents Episcopalians with a stark choice: “Steeped as it is in White supremacy, our denomination must model transformative letting-go and decide whether it is going to be White (that is, allied with oppression) or be church.” Whiteness, the writers say, is “not a benign construct” but the insidious driving force behind white supremacy.The three priests, who have regular conversations about the problems facing the church and society, said they felt compelled to speak up and offer their perspective as women of color in a mostly white church. Although many Episcopalians feel overwhelmed and powerless to act against racial injustice, there is also a current of change running through the church now that feels different, they said.“The combination of COVID and the uprisings that are happening kind of illustrate what systemic racism is in a way that I don’t know has been illustrated in my life, in a way that the public can understand,” Varghese told ENS. “And I see movement all over the church.”“I have felt a stirring to say a word – any word – to name the grief, to name the hope, and also to speak strategically about, ‘What can we do as church? What must we do?’” Spellers said.The answer to that, the priests wrote, requires more forceful anti-racist actions by Episcopalians and more widespread participation in the work of anti-racism. To that end, Spellers said her office is conducting a survey of what each diocese is doing to dismantle racism and how dioceses might be able to help each other.“We haven’t just kind of sat by and received the benefits of oppression,” Spellers told ENS. “We have actively participated, blessed those systems, built the systems, maintained and protected the systems. The only way The Episcopal Church – and Episcopalians – has any credibility is if we do the external work on justice, and policing in particular, and our internal work on telling the truth about our church’s story and healing our own identification with white supremacy.”The leaders closed their letter with a nod to Pauli Murray, an early civil rights activist, fiery feminist and the first African American woman ordained a priest in The Episcopal Church.“We believe that we can become the nation and church that our first Black sister priest Pauli Murray called us to be, a “true community that is based upon equality, mutuality and reciprocity … that affirms the richness of individual diversity, as well as the common human ties that bind us together.”“As Jesus urged, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself’ (Luke 10:27). It is then that we will be free.”Read the entire letter here.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected]’s note: An earlier version of this story contained an incorrect date for the launch of the Becoming Beloved Community initiative. The General Convention resolution that called for it was passed in 2015, but the initiative itself began in 2017.

Just over a quarter (27%) reported an increase of more than 10%, while just 4% experienced a decrease in demand for services over the same period.Small charities across all regions experienced an increase in demand over this quarter, with the Midlands, North West, South West and Wales reporting increases of 7%.This data illustrates the trend of a continuous rise in demand for small charities’ services, Since the The Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI) launched the Small Charity Index report in June 2013, it has surveyed 2877 small charities and demand for services has increased a total of 64%.However, while the FSI recommends that small charities work in collaboration to help safeguard the services they provide, according to the research the majority of small charities (51%) who state that they are working collaboratively are undertaking less than 10% of their activities in partnership with others, while 27% do not work collaboratively at all.Pauline Broomhead, CEO of the FSI commented:“We have seen a further increase in demand for services in the small charity sector. Markets are volatile and potential cuts to public funding is likely- which could trigger even greater demand for small charities and the services they provide”.“The increasing demand shows that trust in small charities remains high. Smaller organisations are able to adapt quickly to the environment they find themselves in and provide support wherever society needs it”.The full report can be downloaded here: www.thefsi.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/SCI-Quarterly-Report-12th-Edition.pdf.
