Thomas Carr | Tuesday, 25th February, 2020 | More on: BOO FEVR RMV 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. Image source: Getty Images The 3 UK stocks I’d buy in a market crash! Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The best companies’ shares are naturally the most sought after, and the very best examples command share prices that are in the stratosphere. But a market crash could cause prices to plummet, which just might be an opportunity to buy into my three favourite UK stocks.Boohoo (LSE: BOO) — the online clothing retailer — has grown annual revenues from £139m in 2015, to £856m last year. Net profits have risen by a similar degree, equating to an increase of around 500%. What’s more, this growth has been consistent, with both annual revenues and profits growing by at least 30% in each of the last four years.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…2019 saw the group add to its ambition of becoming a major multi-brand online retailer, with the acquisitions of Karen Millen and Coast. The group is focused on attracting young, value-orientated customers, with its range of trend-led clothing, all delivered online with no expensive stores to worry about.Annual revenues for 2020 are again expected to increase by 40%, having already hit the £1bn mark in the first 10 months of the year. Complementing this growth is a strong balance sheet. Boohoo has net cash of over £200m, and has a proven track record of increasing its net assets. Huge Profit MarginsLike Boohoo, Rightmove (LSE: RMV) has also consistently grown revenues and profits, all while maintaining an unusually high net profit margin. In fact, its net profit margin has been steady at around 60% for the last five years.The online property company benefits from having a very profitable business model, which does not require large amounts of capital and investment. Rightmove doesn’t have to hold large amounts of inventory or physical assets, it just needs to operate its online search portal. This operating efficiency is demonstrated by its ROCE (return on capital employed) of almost 800%, which is quite amazing.The company’s latest results showed that both revenue and pre-tax profits grew by 10% in the first half of the year, with continued growth in its agency and new housing business lines. Rightmove is the UK’s number one search portal for housing, with its website registering over 800m visits in the first six months of the year. This is another I like.Explosive GrowthFevertree’s (LSE: FEVR) rise has been even more dramatic. The maker of premium mixer drinks has more than doubled net profits in the last two years. Profits of £61m in 2018 were nearly 60 times those of four years prior.As well as remarkable growth in both the top and bottom line, it has an enviable balance sheet. At year-end, it had a net cash position of over £100m, while a ROCE of 40% shows just how much Fevertree is able to get out of its assets.Revenue growth may have slowed in the UK, but the company is benefiting from a ‘premiumisation’ trend that is increasingly international. In 2019, Fevertree’s US and rest-of-the-world sales rose by over 30%, highlighting the huge potential of its international expansion.Would I buy these three? Despite their extraordinary operating performances, I think all of them are too expensive today. With a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 26, I think Fevertree shares are the best value for me, but in the event of major price falls, I might be tempted to buy all three.

Charlottesville, Va., Aug. 11The weekend of Aug. 11-12, the first anniversary of last year’s deadly march by neo-Nazis and hooded Klan members in Charlottesville, Va., confirmed one thing: These fascists don’t control the streets — no way.Instead, large rallies, marches and protests by progressive forces in both Washington, D.C., and Charlottesville owned the day.The “alt-right,” as the violent white supremacists are euphemistically called, were encouraged by the racist, misogynist, anti-immigrant Trump presidency to climb out of their klaverns last year and show themselves in public in Charlottesville in an armed torchlight parade carrying fascist symbols.Even after one of them, at the end of the rally, plowed through a crowd of people with his car, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer, Trump at first refused to condemn them, referring to “hatred, violence and bigotry on many sides.” Only after a storm of protest did he reluctantly amend that and mention racism.This year, calling themselves “Unite the Right,” the organizers applied for a permit to rally in D.C. on Aug. 12 at Lafayette Square. They estimated that 400 people would attend, including former KKK Grand Dragon David Duke.On the day, barely two dozen fascists showed up. Only a huge police presence saved them from the anger of the thousands who turned out to stop them. According to ABC10 news, “Unite the Right rally participants said other members were ‘scared’ to attend the rally in D.C., making the group of about 30 vastly outnumbered by the thousands of counter-protesters surrounding the area.”Earlier, when the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority announced it would close down gates to the general public and let the fascists take special trains to the rally, the system’s largest union, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689, refused to go along. The WMATA then publicly rescinded its offer of special trains for the fascists. But on the day it went ahead anyway and closed down gates to the general public, prompting charges from the union that the agency had lied.While the openly Nazi and white supremacist forces may now be afraid to take to the streets, that doesn’t mean they have been defeated. On the contrary, they are not only in their klaverns and death cults, but many wear the uniforms of local police and Border Patrol.The slogan “Cops and the Klan work hand in hand” is still valid. And the far-right Trump appointees now in charge of so many federal agencies — like the notorious torturer Gina Haspel, director of the CIA — must be fought as they push the government even further to the right.Charlottesville a year laterThe following account of what happened in Charlottesville, Va., is by Malik Clark of G-Rebls and Workers World Party.After fascist and Nazi groups announced a Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., for Aug. 11, University of Virginia students organized their own Rally for Justice on that day. The approach of the anniversary of Heather Heyer’s death a year ago during a similar rally by the far right conjured noticeable tension as everyone wondered what would happen. Would the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis return to clash with the anti-fascist demonstration?Organized by the activist group Students United, the event drew over 200 protesters carrying banners and signs denouncing white supremacy, neo-Nazis and the police. The student group planned to “reclaim the north plaza of the Rotunda,” where a statue of slaveowner president Thomas Jefferson stands — a target since the previous Unite the Right demonstration in Charlottesville.The students had been told they would be allowed to convene in this area, but law enforcement blocked off the statue and prohibited an occupation.Many organizations came out in support of the student rally, including community groups, members of the Catholic Church and local activists. They gathered to the east of the statue and the Rotunda. Passionate Black student leaders spoke of Heather Heyer’s tragic death and how the heavy policing of their approved rally was evidence of the people’s power. Survivors faced their resurfaced trauma and spoke about what the past year has been like for them and the importance of the community learning from tragic events.State law enforcement overwhelmed most free space within the university. A myriad of police cars, vans, armored vehicles and buses riddled the side streets and student/faculty parking lots. Officers in full riot gear made their way through the pavilions to approach the rally.The peaceful Rally for Justice became a target of yet another show of power by the tools of the government.Protesters formed a human barrier to keep the cop militia away, shouting, “We don’t see no riot here, why are you in riot gear?”The police came without warning and without requirement. The white supremacist neo-Nazis and Klan never showed.The students, not wanting to lose control and get caged in by the surrounding officers, moved the rally to the streets and marched through the campus, occupying space as they went. As the march progressed, police interference continued to block off routes. The students eventually lost control of the procession as the demonstration dissolved and marched off the campus.The alt-right did not need to come to the rally — the police did the work of trying to intimidate and instill fear within our ranks. This demonstration confirmed the unwarranted police aggression toward the left. Neo-Nazis can march with torches without fear, yet a moment of healing for a hurting community requires riot gear.By contrast, a rally in Booker T. Washington Park the next day was very well received. Many members of the community came out early on Sunday morning, empowering one another with spirituals, chants ands words of solidarity.One community member, Rosia Parker, spoke on the importance of the community standing against the police and white supremacy. “Charlottesville was built by the hands of Black people,” she said, adding, “We’re still taking this back, by force.” Parker and Katrina Turner had been pushed out of the way of the car that killed Heather Heyer during last year’s tragedy.Quoting Assata Shakur, Parker emphasized the need for unity between all people of Charlottesville. Community members spoke about the many difficulties facing Charlottesville, such as displacement, unaffordable housing and police brutality.The rally brought attention to other victims of violent clashes at the first march, so they would not be forgotten.The presence of the Ku Klux Klan in last year’s Unite the Right march was a wake-up call to this community. The community addressed the event as a racist terror attack. Don Gathers of the Charlottesville local Black Lives Matter movement urged everyone to do their part in the fight against racism and to hold Charlottesville officials accountable.The spirit of Heather Heyer can only be honored by fixing the problems that created such an influx of opposition. The people of Charlottesville are to be commended for being able to overcome their trauma and turn a terrifying experience into a movement for equality and peace.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

This was made possible after the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP) filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) due to the agency’s failure to respond to a request for information concerning the impersonation of documentarians. Included in these guidelines is the procedure FBI employees must follow to obtain approval for impersonating a member of the news media, which includes submitting an application to the Undercover Review Committee at FBI headquarters and receiving consent from the FBI Deputy Director, who must first consult with the Deputy Attorney General. The guidelines do not, however, outline the criteria that the Deputy Director and Deputy Attorney General consider when approving these requests. to go further News United StatesAmericas News Follow the news on United States Along with RCFP’s legal arguments in its lawsuit, two documentary filmmakers—David Byars and Abby Ellis— submitted signed affidavits stating the agency’s impersonation schemes have made their jobs more difficult.
