Looking to outperform the FTSE 100? Here are my top UK small-cap growth stocks for 2020

first_imgLooking to outperform the FTSE 100? Here are my top UK small-cap growth stocks for 2020 DotDigital issued a strong set of full-year results in mid-October. For the year ended 30 June 2019, organic revenue from continuing operations climbed 15% to £42.5m, while adjusted earnings per share jumped 33% to 3.88p. Meanwhile, recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue climbed to 86%.Looking ahead, analysts expect revenue and earnings per share of £48.9m and 4p respectively this year. I believe there’s a good chance the group will beat these forecasts, given its strong growth in the US and Asia. This could send the share price significantly higher. At present, DOTD shares trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 24.5. I see that valuation as very attractive.Legal industry disruptorNext up, Keystone Law (LSE: KEYS). This is an innovative, next-generation law firm that is disrupting the market by enabling lawyers to work from home or their own offices. It currently has over 300 lawyers on board (it believes its addressable market is potentially 47,000 lawyers), and its clients include Tesco, the BBC, and Siemens. AB Dynamics issued a great set of full-year results in late November. For the year, revenue climbed 56%, while adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 50%. The company also said that it remains confident that it will continue to deliver further growth in the coming year. However, since the results, the shares have pulled back from above 2,800p to around 2,000p.I think this pullback has created an attractive entry point. Given the company’s strong growth, I think the stock’s forward-looking P/E ratio of 30.7 is quite reasonable. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images. Edward Sheldon, CFA | Friday, 3rd January, 2020 | More on: ABDP DOTD KEYS Edward Sheldon owns shares in dotdigital Group and Keystone Law. The Motley Fool UK has recommended AB Dynamics, dotDigital Group, and Tesco. 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Keystone has grown at a rapid rate over the last few years (three-year revenue growth of 104%) and I’m expecting further growth in the years ahead. Directors believe the business model enables “rapid scalability” and if the special dividend of 8p that was declared in the group’s first-half results in September is anything to go by, management is certainly confident about the future.Turning to the valuation, Keystone shares currently trade on a forward-looking P/E ratio of 37. That is a lofty multiple, however, given the exciting growth prospects here, I don’t see it as a deal-breaker.Autonomous vehicles playFinally, my last UK small-cap stock pick for 2020 is AB Dynamics (LSE: ABDP). It’s a provider of integrated test systems for the global automotive industry. Given that the group’s products are integral to the development of new vehicles, I see ABDP as a good way to gain exposure to the self-driving cars market. In the years ahead, manufacturers will need to evaluate their autonomous vehicles extensively under a large number of complex scenarios and ABDP is well placed to benefit. If your goal is to generate strong investment returns, it’s worth looking outside large-cap indices such as the FTSE 100 and allocating a little bit of capital to small-cap stocks. This area of the market can produce explosive returns due to the high-growth nature of smaller companies. Just look at one of my top small-cap picks from last year Gamma Communications – it’s up 70% in less than a year.With that in mind, here’s a look at my top three UK small-cap stock picks for 2020.5G 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…Artificial intelligence-fused digital marketingDotDigital Group (LSE: DOTD) is a fast-growing technology company that specialises in artificial intelligence-fused digital marketing solutions.

Aviva Premiership: Round four preview

first_imgRugby World’s prediction: Gloucester by 6.Think you can do better than us with your predictions? Make your own guesses in our SuperBru pool: here! Rugby World’s prediction: Wasps by 2.Quins v SarriesWhen two of the big dogs meet it makes little sense to ring the changes, so Harlequins have an identical starting side to the one that defeated Worcester last Friday while Saracens have made one switch, swapping Ernst Joubert out for a fit again Kelly Brown.This will be a slobber-knocker, but there are plenty of match winners out there for this one.Rugby World’s prediction: Saracens by 3.Chiefs v TigersPlaying Exeter in Exeter is always a tricky proposition and Leicester have been bushwhacked at Sandy Park before. However, they Louis Deacon, Anthony Allen, Tom Youngs, Dan Cole, Geoff Parling, Julian Salvi and Niall Morris all make comebacks and Niki Goneva moves to the centre that Manu Tuilagi has had to pull out of due to a pectoral injury.The Chiefs, meanwhile, have brought Dave Ewers in at No.8.Rugby World’s prediction: Tigers 10.Scots why aye: Hogg and Blair return for NewcastleFalcons v GloucesterThe Scots are back as Falcons play in their favoured, family-friendly Sunday slot as Mike Blair comes back in at scrum-half and Ally Hogg returns at No.8.On the other end, rollercoaster Gloucester have Jonny May starting for the first time this season and Ben Morgan has finally done enough to start in the back-row alongside Matt Kvesic. Shaun Knight comes in at tight-head and Will James comes in to the second-row for young Elliott Stooke. Here’s hoping for plenty more tries: Round four of the Aviva Premiership is here and we’ll all be hoping for excitementTHE FOURTH round of the Aviva Premiership is upon us and even at this early stage things are getting tight. After four games the big ‘C’ word can be blurted out by angry fans (crisis) and the bottom segment of the league is already looking as likely to drag you in and destroy you as a pie and pint smoothie.So onwards we lurch.Back in harness: Danny CiprianiSaints v SharksDid Northampton deserve to lose last week? Maybe not, many of you could contend. But they did, and they’ll be smarting. Sharks on the other hand, have had a second win of the season against Wasps at the weekend.They have a blitzed squad now, though, with several casualties hobbling around Greater Manchester and Danny Cipriani is back into the line-up to either aid them or lead them reeling into a merry dance their unable to keep up with. It probably doesn’t help that Saints welcome back Alex Corbisiero.Rugby World’s prediction: Saints by 18.Bath v IrishThe big news for Bath is that Kyle Eastmond is back after crawling out of the first game of the season, joining Jonatha Joseph in the middle. Dave Attwood is in as skipper with Stuart Hooper on the bench. Matt Garvey is on the blindside.For Irish the Leo Halavatau starts at tight-head and Topsy Ojo switches to full-back. Kieran Low plays openside.Can Irish frighten Bath at the Rec? It may be relatively close, but with George Ford starting again and confident, a few kicks could make the difference.Rugby World’s prediction: Bath by 9.Fit again: Elliot Daly starts for WaspsWasps v WarriorsThree losses from three betrays the way Wasps have battled, but they face the other side who has lost every single game and who have less bonus points, Worcester.Which could mean this is the weekend’s hardest fought match.Elliot Daly returns to Wasps’ centre while Worcester bring back Euan Murray and Chris Jones.

David Strettle not quite done yet as Saracens release touching tribute videos

first_imgWednesday Apr 24, 2019 David Strettle not quite done yet as Saracens release touching tribute videos Saracens and former England winger David Strettle has released a sincere open letter after the announcement of his retirement from rugby yesterday. Saracens have followed up with two video tributes to the man who will end a 17-year career.ADVERTISEMENTThe 35-year-old will bow out at the end of the season, bringing a glittering career to an end, which has seen him win domestic titles in England and France, with Saracens and Clermont Auvergne respectively.The winger said that social media posts from retiring players are one of the “certainties of life”, before thanking the various people that have helped him throughout his career. But the former Harlequin admitted that his rugby career cannot last forever, and this is the time to end his career.Strettle earned 14 England caps between 2007 and 2013, and was part of the squad that won the 2011 Six Nations title. He also represented England on the sevens circuit before he had established himself in the 15 man format.WATCH: Friday Funnies – David Strettle’s astounding rugby knowledge (2008)He was touted as one of England’s most promising players at one stage, and while his international career may not have developed in the way that many would have expected, he has thrived in the domestic game.He has been one of the most revered and complete players in the Premiership during his time with both Harlequins and Saracens, and after rejoining Sarries at the beginning of the season, he could add to his horde of silverware with a potential Champions Cup and Premiership double before he retires.ADVERTISEMENTYou can read what Strettle had to say in his post below: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

They wanted a sustainable, super modern, longterm family home, that could change and adapt over time. They had a fantastic and unusual block. Facing the street was a tired, single-fronted cottage with a 1980s addition at the rear that opened out onto a surprising, large private garden. Self-professed “kind of quirky types” the owners asked us to think outside the square house box, save as much of the garden as possible and build a ‘homely’ multifunctional and sustainable family house.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellLocated on a long and narrow street, lined with long and narrow blocks, in Prahran, Garden House is a wholly unexpected family home.

By the end of the second round on 26 February, affected by more security problems, only 47 of the Constituent Assembly’s 60 seats had been filled.Electing the 13 remaining seats is crucial for the Constituent Assembly, which will be in charge of writing Libya’s new constitution, establishing a new social contract between the state and the people, and thereby shaping the country’s future.The constitution must be written in a transparent manner that adheres strictly to the legal process and, at the same time, is representative of Libya’s entire social and cultural fabric.“A constitution establishes the bases of fundamental guarantees and should be long lasting, committing future generations,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It forms the core of the rule of law. Freedom of expression must be guaranteed, not only as a fundamental right but also as the pillar of other rights.“The content of Libya’s new constitution, especially those parts concerning freedom of information, opinion, association and expression and all other fundamental rights, must be drafted in consultation with civil society and in accordance with Libya’s international obligations.”Read RSF recommendations in English, French and Arabic Help by sharing this information LibyaMiddle East – North Africa On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom LibyaMiddle East – North Africa News Organisation April 8, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RWB’s recommendations on Libya’s constitutional and legal framework News February 23, 2021 Find out more December 17, 2019 Find out more Six imprisoned journalists to finally appear in court in Istanbul June 24, 2020 Find out more News Well-known Libyan journalist missing since his arrest Receive email alertslast_img read more
