I’d buy this growth and momentum stock before February 25 and hold it for a decade! 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Those looking for top growth shares to buy today should pay some serious attention to Springfield Properties (LSE: SPR). I’m expecting a cheery set of trading numbers when the homebuilder updates the market on 25 February, ones that could lend extra strength to its already-rocketing share price.Bellway, Countryside Properties and Vistry are just a few of a raft of housebuilders to signal strong market conditions in recent weeks. It’d be more than a little odd to expect anything different from Springfield, a firm which rose 36% in value in 2019 on a steady stream of bright updates.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…Survey this!There’s been a slew of positive house price gauges since the start of 2020 too. And the latest report from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) today has kept the trend going.It said that “renewed optimism from buyers and sellers saw a continued pick-up in sales activity across the UK housing market” in January. The number of surveyors reporting a rise in home values swung to a net balance of +17 last month from -2 in December, RICS noted. It is also a vast improvement from the -11 recorded in November.January’s reading is the first one in positive territory since July 2018. But respondents don’t expect the so-called Boris Bounce since December’s general election to be a mere flash in the pan. Indeed, it notes that “respondents to the survey expect this refreshed optimism to continue with sales anticipated to rise across all UK regions, both in the near term and for the year to come.”I bought shares in Barratt and Taylor Wimpey — another couple of stocks that have released positive trading number since New Year’s Day — a few years back on expectation of strong demand for their newbuilds well into the 2020s, at least. And there’s little since then to have watered down my optimism.More minister churnGovernment simply hasn’t got to grips with building enough homes to meet buyer interest. It is still some way off its target of creating 300,000 new homes. The revolving door of housing ministers over the last decade hasn’t helped Whitehall develop sound policies to alleviate the shortfall. And today saw another Minister of State for Housing and Planning, Esther McVey, booted out the door. Her replacement will be the eleventh head of the department since 2010.It’s no wonder that the likes of Springfield have continued to report strong profits growth in recent years. Even the unprecedented levels of political and economic uncertainty related to Brexit haven’t blown it off course.And City analysts expect profits to keep on booming at Springfield, too. A 9% bottom-line rise is predicted for the financial year to May 2020. And an 11% improvement is anticipated for fiscal 2021. The business carries a forward P/E ratio of 9 times presently, one that I feel is too low to miss. Particularly with the likelihood of more top trading numbers released in the coming days too.

Caracas, VenezuelaLike a red tsunami, the Bolivarian people went to Caracas to say farewell to their leader, President Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías. Entire families, women and men of all ages, youth and children descended from the hills surrounding the capital, from the broad plains and from the mountains. From the darkest recesses of the country they came, bearing deep pain but also immense thanks.For seven hours a sea of people accompanied the coffin as it was carried eight kilometers along the avenues of Caracas, from the Military Hospital toward the Military Academy. The House of Blue Dreams, the Comandante called it, because it was there he received the military training he used to liberate his homeland in this “second independence.” He will lie in state there for some days, allowing the people to make their farewells.For seven hours a sea of people accompanied the coffin as it was carried eight kilometers along the avenues of Caracas, Whoever could get close threw countless flowers, portraits, hats, gifts — tokens of love from the people.Walking alongside the coffin with Nicolas Maduro, who later that day was sworn in as Venezuela’s acting president, were three other Latin American presidents — Evo Morales of Bolivia, Cristina Fernández of Argentina and José Mujica of Uruguay — who came as soon as they learned the news in order to accompany the body of their dear friend Chávez and the Venezuelan people.There were so many people that, when there was no longer any room in the surrounding streets, they climbed trees to see the procession. Whoever could get close threw countless flowers, portraits, hats, gifts — tokens of love from the people.Once they reached the Academy, the ceremony in honor of Chávez began with the national anthem, played by the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. An honor guard then stepped up, which changed every three minutes and included the presidents of many countries. President Raúl Castro of Cuba was the first head of state called to stand guard, followed by the leadership of the Revolution, Chávez’s family, and Venezuelan youth representing the political sector, the military, culture and sports.A moving and inclusive ceremony followed, with Chávez’s favorite music and with messages from religious figures, including a speech by the Rev. Jesse Jackson of the U.S.Presidents came from 55 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean. There were representatives from Iraq and Syria. From Iran, the visibly moved President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad kissed the coffin. The international presence was extraordinary. From the U.S. there was actor Sean Penn and former Congressperson Cynthia McKinney. Obama sent two representatives. Many government figures were crying, visibly pained. It was an extraordinary expression of genuine feelings rarely seen in similar situations.The ceremony ended with a very touching speech by Maduro.People watch worldwidePeople in dozens of cities around the world held vigils and organized other expressions of solidarity with the people of Venezuela, shown here in Caracas. At least 16 countries decreed mourning periods from three to seven days, including Cuba, China, Ecuador, Haiti, Iran, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Peru, Uruguay, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil and Chile.While the funeral ceremonies were being held in Caracas, people in dozens of cities around the world held vigils and organized other expressions of solidarity. At least 16 countries decreed mourning periods from three to seven days, including Cuba, China, Ecuador, Haiti, Iran, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Peru, Uruguay, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil and Chile. Expressions of sympathy poured into Caracas from all over the world.Jailed Palestinian leader Ahmad Sa’adat, General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, sent a message acknowledging Chávez as “leader of the liberation struggle in Latin America and the world.” This message echoes how people saw Chávez internationally. From Puerto Rico a delegation swore at the coffin of the revolutionary “their commitment to continue the legacy he left and continue the unification of Latin America.”After the ceremony the endless parade of people continued. Rows many miles long waited outside the Academy, sometimes for more than a day, to salute their deceased leader. About 40 people passed by the casket each minute. Outside, the government set up tents to provide assistance to the thousands of people patiently waiting to enter.So many people came that the government decided to extend the open funeral chapel for seven more days, after which Chávez’s body will be taken to the Historical Military Museum of the Revolution. In addition, Maduro also announced that the body would be embalmed like Lenin’s “so that the people can have it forever.”Why such profound grief?What is behind these profound expressions of love and mourning?Telesur, the station created by the Chávez government as an alternative to the commercial bourgeois stations that are racist and spokespersons of U.S. imperialism, covered live all the events related to the death of Comandante Chávez. Telesur interviewed hundreds of people to show the world how Venezuelans feel and think in these sad times.This opened a window on the strength of Venezuela’s revolution, which is the people, and the sense of responsibility they feel to continue Chávez’s legacy. Their confidence in the new leadership of Maduro could be seen by their comments and slogans: “Chávez lives, the struggle continues,” “Stay strong, Maduro, the people are with you,” “For Maduro, 10 million” (votes in the next presidential election).Chávez’s historical significance can only begin to be seen now. Only time and the course of the revolution will show the extent of his historical impact.His importance is not only local in Venezuela, nor even regional in Latin America, but is global. One can write volumes about the legacy of Chávez, including lessons on the role and the tasks of revolutionaries.Chávez changed the history of Venezuela. Not only the social and economic projects, which have already been written about abundantly. Even more significant is that he involved the masses of the people in the revolution and helped increase their political consciousness. That has been proven by so many comments like “Chávez helped us to know our history, to love, to unite, to value our own worth, to have dignity and national pride.” Now the people are aware of their importance in the history and development of their country and the region.One of Telesur’s many segments was about the reflections Chávez arrived at while he was in prison after the failed coup of 1992. He mentioned that the prison stay made him understand that only a people with consciousness can be the real driving force to transform society. It is a truly dialectical process — the people in motion with consciousness.Chávez was that force, combined with the people. On the one hand, he was deeply influenced by the people, wanting to rescue those who for decades had been the victims of right-wing and corrupt rulers who served not the people but foreign capital. In turn, he influenced the people, the masses thirsting for justice.In the process of seeking justice and dignity, Chávez went from the “Third Way” — which he at first believed would be the solution to existing neoliberal capitalism — all the way to socialism. As Acting President Nicolas Maduro said, “When he found through his own experience that with capitalism — and most of all with neoliberal capitalism — it was impossible to stabilize society, provide equality and happiness to the people, impossible to sustain stable, true democracies, one day in December 2004 he said to us: ‘I will raise the banner of socialism for Our America, Indigenous, Bolivarian, Christian; we will boldly dare to build that dream of humanity and democracy: socialism.’”Rekindled hope for a socialist worldThat campaign, which began in Venezuela, with its dignified and courageous forerunner in Cuba, turned back on a global scale the demoralizing, reactionary wave that had taken hold of many progressive movements and parties after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It rekindled hope for a socialist world, for the real possibility of achieving socialism, not a utopia. Cuba was no longer alone in the Americas. That struggle for socialism, combined with a firm, serene and steady confrontation with neoliberalism and imperialism, with a frank and straightforward voice, was a lesson in courage for the world.And so the world has learned and reacted. Other lessons came from the challenge to institutions representing transnational capital, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Another lesson was about safeguarding the wealth and resources of Venezuela to use them for the welfare of the people and not for the benefit of capital, especially foreign capital. The great example that Venezuela has given was to use oil revenues to fund social missions.Thus, at a regional level Chávez, together with Cuba, took on the work of achieving what is called the “second” Latin American independence that his hero and political mentor, Simón Bolívar, had dreamed of for the region. But as he said many times, America will not be free until it is one. And so began the process of integration, with ALBA (Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas), UNASUR (Union of South American Nations) and CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean Countries) creating joint partnerships in solidarity.Through these regional blocs Chávez tried to create a multipolar world. U.S. imperialism, while it remains cruel, vicious and dangerous, now sees itself more and more isolated, losing the hegemonic position it used to count on.These are lessons that make Chávez and the revolution he led a role model. An anti-imperialist hero with a humble, cheerful, generous personality, he won millions of hearts around the world.¡Hasta siempre, Comandante!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Mackerel icefish Champsocephalus gunnari are widespread on the South Georgia (54° S, 36° W) shelf. Analysis of condition indicated a strong interannual variation. High condition indices, indicative of good feeding conditions, were present when krill were abundant in the region. Years when krill were scarce and condition index was consequently low, were consistent with years when indices from land-based krill predators also indicated that krill were scarce.
Franchise sales and lettings group Hunters says it outperformed the market during 2017 and increased its income by 9.8% to £38.9m, up from £35.4m in 2016, despite the “well-documented challenging conditions in the UK”.Today’s results come from its latest trading update to the City and includes details of its aggressive expansion, which included 37 new branch openings last year, taking it to a total of 213 branches.Like its competitors Martin & Co, EweMove and Belvoir, Hunters is hoping the choppy trading conditions within the UK property market at the moment will persuade more independent agents to seek safe anchorage in its branded franchise network.Cost reductions“Market conditions will continue to encourage independent operators to be part of a stronger group that can also offer significant cost reductions, particularly in terms of portal charges for Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket,” its update says.“We are already seeing an improved level of enquiries from high quality independent businesses. Our financial strength will enable us to both expand our network and reward shareholders with an attractive dividend.”In December last year Hunters began listing its properties centrally via OnTheMarket.com, rather than leaving it to individual franchisees.The City would seem to agree with this point of view – unlike many of its PLC counterparts shares in Hunters have been rising steadily in recent weeks, up from £0.45p at the end of January to £0.51p today, helped by its announcement last month that it is partnering with a proptech firm to enable empty rental and sales properties to be rented out via Airbnb.“We are pleased with our performance and the progress we are making in adding high quality businesses to our network,” says Glynis Frew, Hunters’ Chief Executive (pictured, left).“Our organic growth is significantly stronger than our competitors and we are optimistic that this will lay the foundations for further growth.”The latest branch openings within the Hunters network make it larger than competitors Winkworth (101 branches) and Belvoir (165 branches) but some way behind Martin & Co (403 offices).Read more about Hunters.Glynis Frew Martin & Co Hunters Belvoir February 20, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
