Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address AIM Shares: 1 biotech stock to watch in 2021 Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Zaven Boyrazian Biotech stocks have been at the centre of the Covid-19 vaccine development effort. So it’s no surprise that their share prices have generally been on fire lately. There are lots of AIM shares operating in this industry. But one, in particular, has caught my attention. Could this biotech stock be my next investment? Let’s take a look.Using biotech to diagnose Covid-19Abcam (LSE:ABC) manufactures pharmaceutical reagents and provides research tools to companies engaged in diagnostics and drug development. Over the years, the firm has built up a vast portfolio of over 450 antibodies that are commonly used in blood tests (including those used to diagnose Covid-19) as well as the development of new medicines.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…I discovered an impressive figure from 2019. Almost half of the scientific papers published related to drug development cited one of Abcam’s products as critical to the research. Needless to say, the firm’s products are well known and widely used. And they have even led to 20 new treatments that are either FDA approved or in clinical trials today.The business generates revenue from several sources. The bulk comes from the direct selling of reagents to customers worldwide. The other — currently much smaller — sources include service fees, licenses of its technology, and royalties from approved treatments.The latter component is what I find most fascinating as Abcam continues to receive a portion of each sale of a treatment that was developed using its reagents. Due to the typical 10-year drug development cycle, the number of FDA approved medicines using Abcam’s products is currently quite low. But over the long term, I expect this revenue source to become far more substantial.The biotech stock is not risk-freeBeyond its shares being AIM-listed, Abcam is exposed to multiple risks. Its international operations did help make it a globally recognised brand within the biotech industry. But as a result, most of the revenue now originates from outside the UK, primarily coming from North America. This exposes the firm to fluctuating currency rates that may have a notable impact on the bottom line.This global presence also introduces some additional complications regarding regulatory compliance. As I’ve previously discussed, the pharmaceutical industry has some of the world’s strictest regulations. Different countries have different regulatory standards. And while most are similar to FDA, there are some differences that Abcam needs to comply with.If the business fails to do so, its products would no longer be allowed to be used in certain countries. And it would likely have a significant impact on the business from both a legal and reputational standpoint.The bottom line: should I buy shares in this AIM StockDespite the impressive and vital technology that Abcam provides, it’s not a stock I’ll be adding to my portfolio. At least not at the current price.The firm’s net income has recently been dropping as it has begun increasing spending to expand faster. Sacrificing profits in the name of growth is a perfectly acceptable strategy, in my opinion. However, this promise of growth has elevated the share price to a level that seems unsustainable to me.With a P/E ratio of nearly 280, Abcam just looks too expensive. But I’ll be keeping a close eye on it for any potential buying opportunities throughout 2021. Zaven Boyrazian does not own shares in Abcam. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Abcam.

2018 Rugby Championship Preview

first_imgWho’s going to come out on top in this year’s Rugby Championship? We take a look at the contenders 8 Sep8.35amAll Blacks vs ArgentinaTrafalgar Park, Nelson Contest: Australia and Ireland played a narrow series in June (Getty Images)South AfricaCoach – Rassie Erasmus2018 Form – Played 4, won 2 (both against England), lost 2 (once to Wales, once to England)Strengths – Super Rugby finalists the Lions are strong and their players will form a big part of the squad. They are always physically demanding to play against and have confidence following their series win against England.Weaknesses – Rassie Erasmus is still settling in as coach and they haven’t beaten New Zealand or Australia since Round 5 of the 2016 tournament. Some big players like Eben Etzebeth and Warren Whiteley are returning from injuries so may take time to get up to speed.One To Watch – Faf de KlerkA constant threat on the edges of the scrum or breakdown, de Klerk was a huge factor in South Africa’s series win over England in June. His game management is solid because he is more than capable of speeding up or slowing down the pace of play. His box-kicks are usually pinpoint too. However, he’s unlikely to play in all South Africa’s games as Erasmus looks for a compromise with his club, Sale Sharks.Shark: Sale scrum-half Faf De Klerk was sublime for South Africa against England (Getty Images)Victor Matfield on South Africa: “We’re better off than a year back, there’s a lot of improvement in that England series but there is still a lot of work to be done.”Fourie Du Preez on South Africa: “The previous two years it’s been really bad, the first XV has been in quite a transition, but I am personally quite positive about South Africa’s chances.”Full Squad Forwards: Cyle Brink, Jean-Luc du Preez, Thomas du Toit, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Eben Etzebeth, Steven Kitshoff, Siya Kolisi (captain), Francois Louw, Wilco Louw, Frans Malherbe, Malcolm Marx, Bongi Mbonambi, Franco Mostert, Tendai Mtawarira, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Marvin Orie, RG Snyman, Akker van der Merwe, Marco van Staden, Warren Whiteley.Backs: Lukhanyo Am, Ross Cronjé, Faf de Klerk, Aphiwe Dyantyi, André Esterhuizen, Elton Jantjies, Jesse Kriel, Willie le Roux, Makazole Mapimpi, Lionel Mapoe, Lwazi Mvovo, Embrose Papier, Handré Pollard, Ivan van Zyl, Damian Willemse.On The Up: South Africa celebrate their series win over England (Getty Images)ArgentinaCoach – Mario Ledesma2018 Form – Played 3, lost 3 (twice to Wales, once to Scotland)Strengths – Jaguares, their Super Rugby side, showed improvement this year and if they can take some of that attacking threat into this tournament they will cause opponents problems. Plus, they are starting to select overseas-based players again, which gives them more experience and depth.Weaknesses – Head coach Daniel Hourcade resigned following the June Tests and has been replaced by Jaguares head coach Mario Ledesma. He knows the players well but does he have enough time to implement significant changes? The Pumas were poor in June, lacking creativity in attack and missing their usual strength up front, so big improvements are needed if they are to be competitive.Related: Mario Ledesma new Argentina coachOne To Watch – Emiliano Boffelli A prodigy from a young age, Boffelli was thrust into the national set-up early on. He has represented his country at U20, sevens and Test level, and has great vision and huge kicking capabilities.Utility: Boffelli can play across the back three (Getty Images)Mario Ledesma on Argentina: “We need to get back to the fundamentals of our game. Good defending wins games.”Full Squad Forwards: Marco Ciccioli, Lucas Favre, Santiago García Botta, Santiago Medrano, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Mayco Vivas, Juan Pablo Zeiss, Agustín Creevy (captain), Diego Fortuny, Julián Montoya, Matías Alemanno, Ignacio Larrague, Tomás Lavanini, Franco Molina, Guido Petti, Rodrigo Bruni, Santiago Grondana, Marcos Kremer, Juan Manuel Leguizamón, Pablo Matera, Javier Ortega Desio.Back: Gonzalo Bertranou, Tomás Cubelli, Martín Landajo, Joaquín Díaz Bonilla, Nicolás Sánchez, Jerónimo de la Fuente, Bautista Ezcurra, Santiago González Iglesias, Matías Moroni, Matías Orlando, Sebastián Cancelliere, Bautista Delguy, Ramiro Moyano, Emiliano Boffelli, Juan Cruz Mallía.Promotion: Jaguares coach Mario Ledesma has been promoted to the Argentina job (Getty Images)2018 Rugby Championship Fixture List Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter. 18 Aug4.05pmSouth Africa vs ArgentinaKings Park, Durban LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 18 Aug10.45amWallabies vs All BlacksANZ Stadium, Sydney 29 Sep11.40pmArgentina vs All BlacksEstadio Velez Sarsfield, Buenos Aires (All times are UK & Ireland) 2018 Rugby Championship PreviewWith the culmination of the Super Rugby season, the number one rugby union competition in the southern hemisphere is about to begin – the Rugby Championship.We run the rule over each team – their strengths and weaknesses, and how they look going into the competition. Legends of the game also weigh in on their respective teams.New ZealandCoach – Steve Hansen2018 Form – Played 3, won 3 (all against France)Strengths – Number one ranked team in the world, world-class players across the pitch, and their strength in depth is astounding. Most of the squad know what it takes to win at international level and experience is always important. Finally, despite the scorelines, they were well tested by France in the summer.Weaknesses – Because they are the best team in the world, occasionally the All Blacks are prone to complacency. Some of their big players are coming back from injuries – Brodie Retallick, Dane Coles and Sonny Bill Williams for example. Additionally, will the players coming in from the Crusaders be tired? They have had a long season getting to the Super Rugby final once again and could be fatigued going into the Rugby Championship.One To Watch – Rieko IoaneCould be several players in this spot, but it’s hard to look passed Rieko Ioane. He always looks to attack, whilst also being deceptively strong and devastatingly quick.Related: Rieko Ioane on why he’s like “a kid in a candy store”Youngster: Rieko Ioane is our one to watch for the All Blacks (Getty Images)Christian Cullen on the All Blacks: “New Zealand rugby is on a bit of a high right now. I think they’ve got all the cups at the moment with the sevens and the women. New Zealand rugby is always going to be strong, over the years when someone leaves, when a Dan Carter leaves or a Richie McCaw leaves, there is always someone that can step up and that’s always been a strength.“In Super Rugby, New Zealand has one of the hardest conferences. I think four of the teams made it into the play-offs and that just shows you how strong it is. Playing those derby games it’s tough for the players but it’s good to get the younger boys in the competition. Some of them are almost like Test matches – that’s how tough they are.”Full SquadForwards: Dane Coles, Codie Taylor, Nathan Harris, Owen Franks, Joe Moody, Tim Perry, Karl Tu’inukuafe, Ofa Tu’ungafasi, Scott Barrett, Brodie Retallick, Sam Whitelock, Sam Cane, Jackson Hemopo, Shannon Frizell, Kieran Read (captain), Ardie Savea, Liam Squire, Luke Whitelock.Backs: TJ Perenara, Aaron Smith, Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, Beauden Barrett, Damian McKenzie, Richie Mo’unga, Ryan Crotty, Jack Goodhue, Sonny Bill Williams, Anton Lienert-Brown, Jordie Barrett, Rieko Ioane, Nehe Milner-Skudder, Waisake Naholo, Ben Smith.World Class: Beauden Barrett will likely lead the line for the All Blacks (Getty Images)AustraliaCoach – Michael Cheika2018 Form – Played 3, won 1, lost 2 (all against Ireland)Strengths – They will be battle hardened following the highly competitve Test series against Ireland, while David Pocock and Michael Hooper are a troublesome pair at the breakdown. Australia are always a significant test for any team.Weaknesses – Could be limited in creativity outside of Israel Folau and Kurtley Beale, and their young pack needs more experience.One To Watch – Taniela TupouA 20st man mountain, Tupou made his debut for the Wallabies against Scotland last year and has put in good performances to make sure he remains in the Australia set-up. Still only 22, the prop is one for the future.Tongan Thor: Tupou has a great nickname (Getty Images)George Gregan on Australia: “They just had a really tight series with Ireland in June, an awesome series, and both teams scored 55 points, so they played some really good rugby in there, but at times they just haven’t found that consistency in winning and that’s really really important.“I like what they’re doing with the tight forwards. It’s a good young pack and the set-piece was pretty good. The lineout needs a bit of improvement, but I was really happy with the way they attacked. They’ve got some really positive signs in that regard.”Full Squad Forwards: Jermaine Ainsley, Allan Alaalatoa, Rory Arnold, Adam Coleman, Folau Faingaa, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper (captain), Sekope Kepu, Tolu Latu, Brandon Paenga-Amosa, David Pocock, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Tom Robertson, Izack Rodda, Pete Samu, Rob Simmons, Scott Sio, Caleb Timu, Lukhan Tui, Taniela Tupou.Backs: Tom Banks, Kurtley Beale, Israel Folau, Bernard Foley, Will Genia, Dane Haylett-Petty, Reece Hodge, Marika Koroibete, Jack Maddocks, Billy Meakes, Sefa Naivalu, Jordan Petaia, Nick Phipps, Joe Powell, Curtis Rona, Matt Toomua. 25 Aug8.10pmArgentina vs South AfricaEstadio Malvinas Argentinas, Mendozacenter_img 15 Sep8.35amAll Blacks vs South AfricaWestpac Stadium, Wellington 8 Sep11amWallabies vs SpringboksSuncorp Stadium, Brisbane 6 Oct4.05pmSouth Africa vs All BlacksLoftus Versfeld Stadium, Pretoria Imperious: The All Blacks have won 5 of the last 6 competitions (Getty Images) 25 Aug8.35amAll Blacks vs WallabiesEden Park, Auckland 6 Oct11.40pmArgentina vs WallabiesEstadio Padre Ernesto Martearena, Salta 15 Sep11amWallabies vs ArgentinaCbus Super Stadium, Gold Coast DateTimeTeamsVenue 29 Sep4.05pmSouth Africa vs WallabiesNelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabethlast_img read more

Chaz By Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceSOMEWHERE ABOVE THE ATLANTIC OCEAN – Thats right Apopka, I’m on my way to Paris for a couple of weeks to give my readers a perspective from another continent. No expense is spared in bringing you the news that engages and inspires you to make a difference in your community.Even if it means a transatlantic flight to a faraway land.Paris in the 1920s was a creative melting pot that inspired great authors like Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, F Scott Fitzgerald and James Joyce to pen some of the greatest novels ever written.It seems like the perfect venue for me to conclude “Falconland II”, the sequel to my first novel that I put off finishing for a couple years while establishing The Apopka Voice, and for starting the biography of retired Apopka Commissioner Billie Dean.If all goes well, I will glean the same inspiration that those great writers did almost a century ago, and then return to Apopka rejuvenated and ready to push forward with both The Apopka Voice and “An unexpected icon: The life and times of Billie Dean”.But during this time, The Apopka Voice will still be publishing articles just as it has every day for almost three years. Not only will you continue to receive local news, but if there are stories I run across while on the other side of the pond that I think might interest you, I’ll be certain to share them.But don’t worry Apopka, I’ll be back in time to cover the historic first State of the City address delivered by Mayor Bryan Nelson, and to report on Election Day November 6th.

At least 79 journalists arrested in two months of protests in Sudan

first_img News RSF has so far registered a total of 79 media personnel arrests since the protests against an increase in the price of bread began on 19 December and then quickly grew into angry demonstrations against the regime. Coronavirus infects press freedom in Africa Sudan is ranked 174th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent The number of journalists arrested in the course of a nearly two-month-old wave of anti-government protests in Sudan is at least 79, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) revealed at a press conference in Paris yesterday. “The release of detained journalists is far from ending the crackdown on the media,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We call for an end to all forms of censorship, including an end to the repeated seizures of newspaper issues and the dropping of all judicial proceedings against media personnel. There will be no resolution of the crisis in Sudan if journalists are not free to cover what is happening.” Follow the news on Sudan SudanAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independence ImprisonedFreedom of expressionEconomic pressureJudicial harassment Print media throttled by censorship RSF_en A total of 16 journalists were being held at the height of the crackdown at the start of February. All had been detained for more than 48 hours and some for several weeks. They have all been freed in the past few days after President Omar al-Bashir met with a number of newspaper editors on 6 February. Help by sharing this information The all-powerful National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) continues to ban and seize newspaper issues. RSF has registered a total of 63 bans and seizures since 19 December. Al-Jareeda, one of the most-targeted newspapers, has managed to publish an average of less than one issue every two days since the start of the crackdown. This extreme censorship has already cost the Sudanese print media tens of thousands of euros. Sudanese protesters take part in an anti-government demonstration in the capital Khartoum’s twin city of Omdurman on January 29, 2019. AFP April 10, 2020 Find out more RSF denounced the regime’s targeting of journalists in a press release on 15 January, in which it reported that 28 journalists had been arrested the previous day while staging a protest against the repeated press freedom violations. Neither the National Council for Press and Publications (NCPP), which regulates the Sudanese media, nor information minister Bushara Guma Aror responded to RSF’s phone calls and messages.
