This UK small-cap stock is rising. Should I buy?

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. Nadia Yaqub has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Bloomsbury Publishing. 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. Image source: Getty Images This UK small-cap stock is rising. Should I buy? Enter Your Email Address Bloomsbury Publishing (LSE: BMY) is a UK small-cap stock that jumped 11% yesterday. But the shares have been on the rise for longer. In fact, since the beginning of 2021 the stock price has increased over 20%. They closed at 344p on Wednesday, up from 216p a year ago.The publisher reported its full-year results yesterday and the numbers were strong. So much so that the company is proposing a special dividend. I’d buy this UK small-cap stock today.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…An overviewThe company is an independent publisher. Most people will probably know about Bloomsbury Publishing due to its success with the Harry Potter series.It operates two divisions — Consumer and Non-Consumer — and the former accounts for over 60% of total sales. The Consumer business focuses on adults’ and children’s titles, while the Non-Consumer operation consists of academic and professional publishing.The firm’s strategy is to expand its offering through digital channels. It’s also looking to grow internationally and reduce its reliance on the UK. It especially wants to capitalise on the large US academic market. But it has also identified significant growth potential in India and China.The resultsI was impressed by the full-year results, which were “ahead of expectations”. The popularity of reading has clearly been ramped up by the pandemic. People had more time to read during lockdown as they couldn’t go out and socialise.Full-year revenue increased by 14% to £185.1m. And profit before tax soared by 22% to £19.2m. Overseas sales increased and now account for 64% of total revenue.What I like about the UK small-cap stock is that the company has strong financials.  Bloomsbury had a net cash position of £54.5m at the end of February (up from £31.3m a year earlier). In light of the strong performance, it declared that special dividend of 9.78p per share.It’s worth highlighting that this additional income payment to the regular dividend indicates two things. The first is that the company is doing very well. Otherwise it couldn’t afford to make such a distribution. The second is that the board is shareholder-friendly by putting the best interests of investors at the forefront. This is something that I look for when researching stocks for my portfolio.RisksBut I do have concerns. While many have taken up reading as a pastime during the pandemic, will this trend continue? I’m unsure at this stage. Lockdown restrictions are easing so people may ditch their books in favour of socialising. This could impact future revenue.The stock is trading close to its all-time high as well. This means the shares could be sensitive to any negative news.OutlookBut as a long-term investor, I reckon things look promising for Bloomsbury. It’s taking the right steps and the company “has seen a continuation of strong trading” so far in 2021/22.It expects revenue and profit for the next financial year to be “comfortably ahead of market expectations”. The board mentioned a market consensus view of sales being £177.5m and profit before tax being £17.4m. For now, I reckon this UK small-cap stock has the potential to rise further. Hence, I’d buy.

Photo: bav.bodleian.ox.ac.uk[Anglican Communion News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has welcomed the decision by the Bodleian and Vatican libraries to make available to the public digitized copies of ancient Bibles and Biblical texts. Speaking in a video to promote the launch of the project’s website, Welby said, “Where you can see these actual texts there’s a lifting of the spirit. “It inspires worship. By being able to have access to a digitized collection, this really opens the texts to a far wider range of scholars than have been able to get at them in the past and is of huge international significance as a resource.” He added he believed the practice of digitizing such texts would “indirectly have an impact on our liturgy of worship and practice of faith.” Europe’s first printed book, Gutenberg’s 1455 Bible, is among texts accessible on a  in the project run by Oxford and The Vatican City. New technology has enabled zoomable high-resolution images of the early manuscripts and books for research. The £2m project will digitize 1.5m pages over the next three years.

A closer look at all the angles of the Chris Ashton vs Rory Kockott incident

first_imgWednesday Aug 22, 2018 A closer look at all the angles of the Chris Ashton vs Rory Kockott incident Chris Ashton’s sending off made headlines this week, initially thought to be for a punch, but yesterday was confirmed as a dangerous tip-tackle by the RFU. Here, we’ve mashed together different angles of the incident, giving you a closer look at what happened.Playing fullback for Sale Sharks in a pre-season fixture against Castres, Ashton took a Rory Kockott high ball before being sacked and taken to ground. With pressure on him, he turned the wrong way and Castres forwards, along with Kockott, went in to get the turnover.As the penalty was awarded to Castres, Ashton held on to the ball, causing fiery South African-France scrumhalf Kockott to try to get it free so he could take it quickly. Ashton wouldn’t give it up, and something else might have gone on that wasn’t visible on camera, angering Ashton.A dangerous tipping of Kockott followed, and then both players were red carded, much to the shock of Kockott, who pleaded his innocence.As it was a pre-season friendly, the footage was not of the highest quality and referee Romain Poite was not mic’d up, so we don’t know what was said.Ashton will appear before an independent disciplinary panel charged with contravening law 9.18.The former England winger faces at least 6 weeks out of the game if it’s deemed a low-end offence, with a mid-range offence resulting in 10 weeks out.In the same match, Alexandru Tarus was also shown a red card for dangerous play in a ruck, as he dived in head first, contrary to law 9.20.Both disciplinary hearings will take place in London on Thursday this week.credit: rfu/radiolympiqueTVADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
