Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Frontier Developments. 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. Royston Wild | Thursday, 11th February, 2021 | More on: FDEV SLP I’m looking for top UK shares to buy in 2021. Here are two I’d happily add to my Stocks and Shares ISA today.#1: A top UK software shareGlobal video game sales were ballooning long before the Covid-19 crisis began. But mass lockdowns have helped turbocharge the popularity of gaming as a mass media. It’s a phenomenon that’s made UK tech stock Frontier Developments (LSE: FDEV) a very exciting growth share in my opinion.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…City analysts reckon Frontier Developments — whose titles include the wildly-popular Elite Dangerous and Planet Zoo franchises — will record earnings growth of 11% and 68% in the fiscal years ending May 2021 and 2022 respectively.The boffins at Enders Analysis recently described video games as “now a core part of the mainstream media and entertainment ecosystem.” They added too that “games share of entertainment spend and audience viewing time will maintain momentum and increase in 2021.”There’s no guarantee that UK shares like Frontier Developments will thrive in the years ahead, of course. A negative reception to a game launch can hit developers hard in the pocket. Unexpected technical issues can also be extremely costly both in financial and reputational terms.The launch of CD Projekt’s much-anticipated (and bug-ridden) Cyberpunk 2077 title in late 2020 illustrates this point perfectly. The Polish developer’s share price almost halved in value between early December and January 8 as gamers queued up to get refunds. CD Projekt’s past successes include the beloved Witcher franchise. But past acclaim is no guarantee of future success, as many unfortunate UK share investors know.Besides, at current, prices Frontier Developments trades on a sky-high forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 80 times. Elevated multiples are extremely common in the tech sphere. Investors are prepared to pay a premium for UK shares with high growth potential like this. However, a high valuation could — as we saw at CD Projekt — cause the share price to collapse if news flow begins to sour.#2: Metal mammothShare pickers seeking better value for money might want to check out Sylvania Platinum (LSE: SLP) instead. This UK stock — which digs for platinum group metals (or PGMs) in South Africa — trades on a forward P/E multiple of only 4 times. The mining ace boasts a 4.5% dividend yield too.City analysts reckon annual earnings at Sylvania will soar 173% in the financial period to June 2021. A quick look at the platinum price in recent hours illustrates just why. The metal’s just spiked to six-year peaks above $1,200 per ounce on expectations that industrial demand is about to soar. PGMs are critical components in car exhaust systems where they clean up exhaust emissions. And growing environmental legislation means that more and more of the commodity is needed.It’s possible that Sylvania Platinum shares could fall if the economic recovery stutters. A slow rebound would hurt industrial demand for the metal, in turn damaging the price the UK share can expect to get for its product. That said, I think the long-term outlook for the company remains pretty exciting.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Tullow Oil’s share price rises after FY results. This is what I’d do now Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

UK share markets are trading fractionally lower on Wednesday. But the Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW) share price isn’t suffering from weak investor appetite in midweek trade. Indeed, its share price is up 2% at 53.2p after the oilie released full-year results for 2020.Tullow hit 54.6p per share earlier today to reach levels not seen for almost 14 months. The oil giant has now more than doubled in value in just six weeks. But can Tullow Oil keep the run going? And should I buy the UK share for my Stocks and Shares ISA?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…Revenues and profits slumpUnsurprisingly, Tullow Oil saw both revenues and profits plummet in 2020 as Covid-19 lockdowns and travel restrictions smashed oil demand. Turnover tanked 17% year-on-year to $1.4bn as the price Tullow got for its product slipped. The average price of its oil slipped to $50.90 per barrel versus $62.40 a barrel in 2019.Tullow Oil also saw production fall sharply in 2020. The black gold producer saw its working interest drop 12% year-on-year in 2020 to 74,900 barrels, it said. This decline reflected field cuts and water declines in Tullow’s key producing market of Ghana, it said, as well as production cuts at its Gabon operations as per OPEC+ requirements.In Ghana, combined production from its TEN and Jubilee assets slipped around 10m barrels year-on-year to 52.4m barrels.This fresh revenues slump meant annual gross profit at Tullow dropped 47% in 2020 to $403m.However, it wasn’t all bad news for the UK oil share last year. Net debt dropped by a chunky $430m year-on-year to stand at $2.38bn, helped by the recent sale of assets in Uganda. Meanwhile, free cash flow at the business improved to $432m, from $355m in 2019.Should I buy Tullow Oil shares?Tullow Oil said it expects group production to fall again in 2021, to between 60,000 and 66,000 barrels. This figure will be adjusted according to completed asset sales in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, it added.But Tullow Oil struck a more upbeat tone beyond this year. It said that “investment focused on [our] cash generative producing assets in West Africa is expected to increase production in 2022 and sustain it for the longer term.”Investor appetite for Tullow Oil’s shares continues to strengthen. But I won’t buy the UK fossil fuel share for my own shares portfolio. The business of searching for and then producing crude is naturally packed with risk. But this isn’t all that’s discouraging me.I’m worried that mountains of fresh supply are about to come online at the same time as the rise of green energy casts a shadow over future demand. This threatens to hit Tullow Oil’s revenues hard.On the plus side, Tullow’s balance sheet is in much ruder health than it has been. And its plan to focus on low-cost and higher-cash-producing assets in West Africa over the next decade could produce handsome shareholder returns beyond 2021. But it’s still a risk too far for me. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A well-placed grubber kick can be the best way to puncture a tight defence. Kick the ball behind the opposition defenders and they have to turn while your team-mates can race onto it and look to capitalise on any open space, especially if they get to the ball first.Watch this video to see a mini rugby player demonstrating this skill. A good way to practise your accuracy is aim kicks along a line on the pitch – halfway or a touchline for example – and see how close you can keep the ball to the white paint. Try kicking along the line to a team-mate who can then practise his technique by kicking it back to you. When you’ve got the accuracy perfected, you can try it out in a match situation.In every issue of Rugby World magazine you will find step-by-step guides on how to perform various skills to help mini rugby players develop their overall game. Mini rugby coach Nigel Botherway also provides details of different training games minis can play, which are fun and help to improve skill levels. We have also produced videos showing mini players performing various skills so you can practise replicating what they do to learn the correct technique and improve your game.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here and find out all the ways you can download the digital issue here.

Rector Albany, NY Rector Hopkinsville, KY Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI El sínodo general de la Iglesia de Inglaterra (Anglicana) aprobó recientemente nuevas propuestas para facilitar la ordenación de mujeres al episcopado, con 378 votos a favor, 8 en contra y 25 abstenciones. Se espera que para fines del 2014 se consagren las primeras mujeres. El nigeriano Jude Thaddeus Okolo (56 años y sacerdote desde 1983), ha sido nombrado por el papa Francisco como nuevo nuncio en República Dominicana, a fin de sustituir al polaco Jozef Wesolowski, quien fuera retirado a causa de acusaciones de abuso sexual a menores, según informara el Vaticano.“La cruz cristiana se ha convertido poco más que una prenda cualquiera colgada del cuello de mucha gente, especialmente de los artistas”, dice el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby en el prólogo de un reciente libro sobre el Cristianismo. “Olvidamos que la cruz es el símbolo más importante de nuestra fe y que debe llevarse con reverencia y humildad” dice Welby. La cruz nos recuerda el sacrificio supremo de Cristo por amor a la humanidad.Ante los líderes de la Iglesia Católica Romana que afirman que en el norte de Nicaragua ya existen grupos armados opositores al gobierno de Daniel Ortega, con demandas políticas bien precisas, el mandatario ripostó que tales opiniones resultan falsas y atacó a ciertos obispos, a quienes calificó de “sembradores de cizaña”, los cuales, según él, “atizan la violencia y siembran odio”. El mandatario afirmó que “nunca jamás se volverá a derramar sangre entre los nicaragüenses, cuando lo que ha de prevalecer es el sentimiento de reconciliación por encima de todos aquellos que pretenden activar la violencia y el odio en este país”.Nicolás Maduro siempre tiene palabras ofensivas para referirse a la oposición. Tras uno de los recientes apagones en el país dijo “duro que me voy a poner para que lo sepan los pelucones, parásitos y burgueses. Al primero que salga a desconocer los resultados de las elecciones para crear violencia van directamente a ponerle los grilletes y va a pagar muy caro”. ¡Que viva la democracia del Siglo XXI!El Manual Diagnóstico y Estadístico de los Trastornos Mentales dice el trastorno psiquiátrico llamado pedofilia que se define como “una orientación sexual o preferencia sexual desprovista de consumación”, mientras que el desorden pedófilo se define como una compulsión en personas que usan así su sexualidad. Grupos cristianos temen que ocurra el mismo proceso que pasó con la homosexualidad que después de será catalogada como una enfermedad pasó a ser llamada “orientación sexual congénita”.La canóniga Melissa Skelton, rectora de la Iglesia Episcopal de San Pablo en Seattle, Washington, ha sido electa obispa de la diócesis de Nueva Westminster, una de las seis diócesis que conforman la Provincia de Columbia Británica, Canadá. Será consagrada el 1 de marzo de 2014.La llamada “Ola Latina” en Estados Unidos se refleja también en las iglesias. La diócesis episcopal de Dallas, Texas, tiene seis congregaciones de habla española informa el obispo sufragáneo Paul Lambert. “Tenemos una asistencia promedio de 1,170 personas cada domingo”, dice. Estudios demográficos en Texas revelan que hay un gran éxodo de católicos romanos a iglesias litúrgicas como la episcopal y la luterana.Como un “gesto generoso de hermandad”, ha sido calificado las palabras y oraciones del papa Francisco a favor de las 13 monjas ortodoxas recientemente secuestradas en Malula, Siria. Como venganza los rebeldes deslizaron neumáticos llenos de explosivos al centro de la ciudad. Malula, símbolo de la presencia cristiana en Siria, constituye uno de los pocos lugares donde todavía se habla arameo, el idioma de Jesús. Las iglesias ortodoxas son el producto del conflicto religioso de 1054 que produjo la mutua excomunión entre el papa y la cristiandad de Oriente.Según un informe de la Comisión Económica para América Latina y el Caribe, las cifras de violencia contra la mujer “son alarmantes”. Las mujeres de América Latina son víctimas de la violencia de género hecho que debería ser objeto de vergüenza dijo Dilma Rousseff, presidenta de Brasil. “Todas las sociedades deberían luchar por ser más justas, ciudadanas y solidarias con la mujer, añadió. El 25 de noviembre ha sido designado como Día Internacional de la Eliminación de la Violencia contra la Mujer como recordatorio del asesinato de las hermanas Mirabal por el régimen de Trujillo en 1960.Como respuesta a la crítica de que el papa Francisco no le ha dado suficiente atención a los escándalos de abusos sexuales del clero, el cardenal Sean O’Malley de Boston dijo que pronto se producirá un informe de cómo proceder en estos casos.PARA PENSAR.

Atlanta, Feb. 2 — Undocumented students and their allies staged dramatic building occupations on three Georgia university campuses on Feb. 1 to press their demands for equal access to higher education.Feb. 1 was the 56th anniversary of the 1960 Greensboro, N.C., lunch counter sit-ins by Black students to protest segregationist policies. The immigrant youth chose that date purposely and drew inspiration and lessons from that historic bold action by young people. The 1960 sit-ins exposed the crimes of racist laws and helped launch the mass Civil Rights movement.Immigrant students fight back in Georgia.Photo: ‘Freedom U Georgia’ Facebook pageStudents, professors and community activists held teach-ins and rallies inside buildings on the Atlanta campuses of Georgia State University and Georgia Tech as well as the University of Georgia in Athens.The well-planned and coordinated actions were organized by Freedom University, a volunteer-based program developed to offer college-level classes and leadership development to youth denied admission and/or in-state tuition to the state’s public universities and colleges. In recognition of their academic ability and leadership potential, Freedom University students have received full scholarships at a number of colleges and universities around the country.In 2011, following a wave of anti-immigrant legislation passed by the Georgia Legislature, the Board of Regents, an unelected body, barred Georgia’s undocumented students from admission to the top five state schools and required out-of-state tuition to be paid at the others in the system. Out-of-state tuition can be more than three times higher than in-state tuition.Even if they graduated from Georgia high schools, undocumented students are also ineligible for the state’s HOPE [Helping Others Pursue an Education] scholarship money or federal grants. These policies, identified as 4.1.6 and 4.3.4, effectively deny youth the opportunity to continue their education, even youth who can graduate at the top of their high school class with honors. In 2012, the Obama administration instituted a program known as DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals], which provided a form of relief from deportation and a protected legal status to those brought into the country as children who met certain qualifications.Undocumented youth, both those covered by DACA and others, have engaged in an ongoing struggle to challenge the Board of Regents’ exclusionary policies with multiple interventions at meetings as well as educational programs on campuses and in communities.At the Feb. 1 action, six young people were charged with trespass for remaining in a UGA campus building past closing time on Monday night.Eight students were arrested in the early morning hours of Feb. 2 after staying in Centennial Hall on the Georgia State campus in downtown Atlanta overnight. GSU President Mark Becker’s office is in that building and a key demand of the action was directed toward him to publicly denounce the discriminatory policy.At Georgia Tech, police used ear-shattering sound horns to remove students from a building where they then proceeded to sing and chant from the outside.On the very day of this planned action, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled on a lawsuit that attempted to sue the Board of Regents over its refusal to adhere to DACA’s legal status for qualified youth. The court ruled that the Board of Regents as a collective body was immune from lawsuits and did not address the issue of DACA protections.It is expected that the individual members of the board will now face lawsuits.Freedom University students often wear brightly colored cardboard butterfly wings during their actions as symbols that human rights and freedoms know no borders. As consciousness of the overt and hidden expressions of racism, bigotry and white supremacy grows and unites students and faculty across the country, the Freedom University students are gaining support on many campuses.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
