Our shortlist have all carved out a niche for themselves in the past 12 months, whether it was negotiating a name-change, capitalising on a long history or launching products that will define the future. These firms know how to sell, sell, sell. Don’t miss the City event of the year – get online now and book your table for the City A.M. Awards on Thursday 28 October 2010 at Grange St Paul’s Hotel, London EC4. www.CityAMAwards.comARTEMISIt’s just a small company in Mayfair, but the asset manager has a big brand. Their poster campaign, with pictures of the firm’s fund managers in shooting gear, posing with shotguns and hunting dogs and stressing the “profit hunter” line, was to be seen everywhere this year. Artemis cleverly targeted the commuter belt railway stations, and now has massive recognition among its target audience. An object-lesson in brand-building.AVIVA“Celebrities do it all the time,” said Norwich Union when it changed its name to Aviva. It argued that the old name – which dated from 1797 – was due a change in a world where it operates in 27 countries, and that one name should be used across the group. It might have attracted the ire of East Anglians, miffed that Delia Smith is now the most famous thing to come out of Norwich, but the change went as smoothly as they could hope.RSAIf you’ve got history, then you should flaunt it, and few firms have as much of it as RSA?(formerly Royal and Sun Alliance). This year it celebrates its 300th anniversary, and to mark it RSA ran a campaign noting some of its famous policy-holders, including Captain Cook and Charles Darwin, as well as highlighting recent work in disasters such as the L’Aquila earthquake in Italy. A classy example of making the most of a long pedigree.ISHARESIt’s a testament to just how strong the iShares brand is that when the firm was bought by BlackRock, its new parent decided not to subsume its new acquisition into its own brand as it normally does with firms it has bought, but left the name intact. The firm – and previous owner Barclays – has built up its reputation over the past year. With its eye-catching blocky adverts, iShares has carved out a niche for itself in the growing world of retail exchange traded funds. A truly strong brand in a crowded and growing market.THOMSON REUTERSThe Eikon platform is meant to revolutionise the way that financial professionals work, and its ads showing youngish, thrusting types wandering through the world’s financial districts certainly reflect a modern, forward-looking view of the markets. The platform itself allows you to access information on mobile phones, home or work computers, and the ads suggest a world where the old symbols of success – a corner office, for example – are less important than doing a good job. Interesting, modern, and everywhere. KCS-content Tags: NULL

The combined group will have pro forma revenues of around €8.7bn, making it the largest in Europe.

Dunelm (LSE: DNLM) shares gained 12% Wednesday morning, and have now soared by 80% over the past 12 months. That brings two possibilities to mind. Are they going to keep on rising, or is this a growth share that’s set for a fall?To put it into perspective a little, the share price is up 39% over five years, and it only started its recent climb at the end of 2018.5G 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…Wednesday’s interim results were behind the latest uptick, with revenue up 6% over the first half last year. Pre-tax profit rose by 19.4% to £84.9m, and the firm lifted its interim dividend by 6.7%. Free cash flow is down 29%, but at £64.4m I don’t really see anything to worry about.There’s net debt of £67.7m on the books (excluding IFRS 16 lease liabilities). But that’s of the same order of magnitude as six months of free cash flow, so no problem.GrowthWhere’s the growth coming from? Like so many retail businesses these days, online sales are making a significant contribution. The firm reported growth in tablet-based selling and click & collect (plus footfall too, so traditional shopping isn’t dead), saying the launch of its new digital platform is “enabling a new phase of growth for Dunelm.”My big issue is valuation, with the shares on forward P/E multiples above 20. I think that’s too steep for a soft furnishings retailer — or almost any retailer.I like Dunelm’s long-term income potential, but I see better buying opportunities ahead.HealthI mentioned on Monday that I’m keeping my eye on Primary Health Properties (LSE: PHP), whose shares are up 40% over the past 12 months. It’s another stock that I see as likely to provide steady long-term income, but also another that’s possibly on a bit of a heady growth valuation.Analysts are bullish for the next couple of years, and I think 2019 results released Wednesday support that optimism.Managing director Harry Hyman described the year as transformational, with the merger with MedicX the key event of the year. It was completed in March, and Hyman described it as “bringing together two high-quality and complementary portfolios in the UK and Ireland.” He added that it “provides a much stronger platform for the future and has already created significant value.“IncomeNet rental income for the year increased by 51%, with adjusted EPRS earnings up 62%. On a per-share basis for the merged company, EPS gained 5.8% and the dividend was lifted by 3.7%.With an adjusted net asset value per share of 108p, the shares are currently priced at a premium of 51%. Is that too high? Well, I can only see demand for Primary Health’s healthcare real estate growing in the coming years. It’s also immune to factors that effect residential property, and is not at risk from retail pressure on the wider commercial sector.We might see better buying opportunities in the medium term. But this is my pick of the two for long-term income with growth potential — and one to maybe top-up in any dips.

Enter Your Email Address A year and a half ago, I thought Oxford Metrics (LSE: OMG) looked like an attractive UK share at 90p.Today, the share price is around 89p. But, in fairness, the stock shot up to more than 125p in February immediately before the coronavirus crisis hit the markets.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…Why Oxford Metrics is a share I’d buy nowI thought the business looked good in June 2019 and I still like the look of it today. However, Covid-19 has affected operations a bit as we can see in today’s results report covering the 12 months to 30 September.Revenue slipped back by just over 14% compared to the prior year and earnings per share plunged by a little over 48%. However, the company managed to increase its net cash position by almost 8% to nearly £15m. That suggests a decent cash inflow performance in the period. And one of the things I like is the company carries no debt, apart from a few lease liabilities. Meanwhile, the directors held the ordinary dividend flat, so at least there wasn’t a cut for shareholders.The company provides software for infrastructure asset management and motion measurement. Highways authorities use the product to manage their road networks. Hospitals and clinicians use the software to decide on therapeutic strategies. And Hollywood studios create “stunning” visual effects using Oxford Metric’s solutions. On top of that, the company reckons applications for the firm’s output are “growing all the time.”And we can see evidence of the firm’s progress and expansion in the financial and trading record. Revenue and the shareholder dividend have been on a clear uptrend over the past five years. And City analysts following the firm have pencilled in robust double-digit percentage increases for earnings and the dividend in the current trading year to September 2021.Growth aheadThe company serves clients in more than over 70 countries and chief executive Nick Bolton said in today’s report trading started well in the current trading year. Looking ahead, he thinks the firm’s strong balance sheet and “a tailwind from structural growth drivers” puts the business in a strong position to realise its expansion plans.Meanwhile, with the share price at 89p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for the current year is just above 16 and the anticipated dividend yield is 2.8%. I’d buy a few of the shares with a holding period of at least five years in mind, and probably much longer than that.But Oxford Metrics isn’t the only smaller company I’m keen on right now. When it comes to positioning my portfolio for the next bull run in 2021 and beyond I’d also consider technology tools and systems provider Oxford Instruments.And I like the turnaround and growth stories unfolding in fast-moving consumer goods companies Premier Foods and mid-cap PZ Cussons.

Photo: Leah Millis/Reuters[Episcopal News Service] The church that has been seen around the world as the backdrop for the ongoing unrest over systemic racism and police brutality in America has reluctantly decided to put up security fencing to protect the building after repeated acts of vandalism.St. John’s Episcopal Church, the “church of presidents” across from the White House in Washington, D.C., told parishioners in an email on June 25 that the parish had accepted the city’s offer to put up fencing around the property, which has been tagged with graffiti and damaged by fire since protests flared nationwide in response to the police killing of George Floyd on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.“We as a parish support the protesters’ fight for an end to systemic racism. As is often the case in these situations, we have also been faced with significant challenges,” the Rev. Robert Fisher, rector, and the parish wardens wrote. “While we hate both the fencing and the boarded-up windows, one of our main responsibilities as rector and wardens is to protect the buildings. Our hope is to remove both the fencing and plywood as soon as practicable.”Church leaders also expressed concern over the unsafe activities of people camping near the church.People “have built encampments on the church grounds, pitching tents, cooking on open fires in close proximity to the buildings, and relieving themselves in inappropriate places, resulting in a risk to the health and safety of protesters and others. At times, our staff have not felt safe traveling to and from work, or in their offices,” the church leaders wrote.St. John’s has been used as a symbol by people on disparate sides of the conflict over racism and policing in America, which has simmered since the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin and escalated since Floyd’s killing. On June 1, police violently forced peaceful protesters and clergy out of the area in front of St. John’s so that Trump could pose for photos holding a Bible in front of the church, an action harshly condemned by Episcopal leaders. The church has since been the site of further protests and prayer vigils focusing on racial justice. In the latest incident of vandalism, the church’s columns were tagged with “BHAZ,” an acronym apparently associated with an attempt to create an “autonomous zone” near the White House.Fisher and the wardens said that the vestry had met last week to discuss “the tension between support of the Black Lives Matter movement and keeping our staff and property safe,” and then met with city officials to form a plan to “peacefully relocate” the people camping on the property. That plan was not enacted because police began clearing the area on June 22.“We have much work to do. In the coming weeks we must return our attention to regathering and reengaging our congregation, while continuing the conversation on racial healing that we started the past two Sundays,” the church leaders wrote.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

It includes guidance, top tips, and case studies, and signposts users to other organisations tackling charity fraud.Charity Fraud Awareness Week aims to promote awareness of the issue in the charity sector and to get people talking about it. Each day will see a series of prevention tips released, along with practical examples of common scams, and the week ends with the second charity fraud prevention conference on 28th October in London, which will highlight common fraud risks and share best practice in fraud prevention, detection and response. Two regional events will follow in December and January for those not able to attend this week’s conference.Throughout the week, charities are asked to follow the #charityfraud hashtag, tweet or email fraud-related questions to a panel of experts or share their own counter fraud initiatives, and organise their own fraud awareness week activities. Free resources are available from the Fraud Advisory Panel’s dedicated webpages.Michelle Russell, director of investigations monitoring and enforcement at the Charity Commission said:“Fraud can thrive in an environment of weak governance and poor financial management, so we are reminding charity staff and trustees, as part of Charity Fraud Awareness Week, to seek out the good practice guidance that is widely available and to review their charity’s financial controls and procedures. We’re keen to work closely with charities to improve their fraud resilience and hope that the new site will enable charities to access and learn from the best practice that’s already out there.” 95 total views, 1 views today Advertisement
