Alongside AstraZeneca, I’d buy this small-cap share in the pharmaceutical sector

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Alongside AstraZeneca, I’d buy this small-cap share in the pharmaceutical sector After many years in the doldrums, the FTSE 100’s AstraZeneca is seeing its R&D pipeline produce new treatments. I think it’s a good time for me to be holding some of the firm’s shares. That’s because some of the products could go on to achieve big sales and profits for the company. On top of that, they’ll likely be protected by new patents.But I’m also keen on some small-cap shares in the wider pharmaceutical sector. For example, today’s audited full-year results report from Ergomed (LSE: ERGO) is full of positives. And the share price has risen a bit today too.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…Doing its bit for the coronavirus pandemicThe small-cap company provides specialist services to the pharmaceutical industry. And on 18 March, it announced its involvement in a clinical study aimed at finding a treatment for patients with Covid-19, who have developed serious respiratory complications. The study is sponsored by the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, Italy, and supported by EUSA Pharma (EUSA).That’s a small part of the company’s activities, which span “all phases” of clinical development, post-approval pharmacovigilance, and medical information. And today’s figures reveal to us some patterns of fast growth within the business. In 2019, revenue grew by just over 26% compared to the prior year, and adjusted EBITDA shot up by a little over 440% to £12.5m. Looking ahead, the order book of future contracted revenue rose by a just under 14% to a smidgeon above £124m.Executive chairman Dr Miroslav Reljanović described in the report how 2019 has been a “transformational” year for Ergomed.  He reckons the business performed “strongly” and the acquisition of Ashfield Pharmacovigilance after the end of the period was a “major strategic step” for the company in the US.Growth on the agenda and strong financesGrowth is on the agenda, but the firm is monitoring “closely” the escalation of the coronavirus outbreak. Reljanović thinks Covid-19 poses an “unprecedented” global healthcare challenge. And he hopes Ergomed can use its “expertise and proven capabilities” to advance drug development and improve outcomes for coronavirus patients.Meanwhile, the balance sheet looks strong with no borrowings. Cash and equivalents rose by almost £175% in the period to just over £14m, which compares with lease liabilities of just under £5.5m.I reckon cash inflow has pushed profits higher, which combines with the strength of the firm’s finances to provide a solid base for further expansion. But, just to make sure, the company agreed a new £30m credit facility with its bankers to fund its growth strategy and to help with any challenges that may arise because of the coronavirus.My guess is we can expect further progress abroad in the years ahead. In 2019, around 42% of revenue came from mainland Europe, the Middle East and Africa, 37% from North America, 19% from the UK, 2% from Asia, and a tiny comparative amount from Australia.Meanwhile, with the share price close to 340p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for 2020 sits near 18. That strikes me as fair for a company with decent growth prospects.

Warren Buffett advice: here’s how I’m applying it to the Aston Martin share price

See all posts by Jonathan Smith Warren Buffett is one of the most respected stock investors of several generations. His investments, held via Berkshire Hathaway, have led him to establish a net worth of almost $79bn. This has taken several decades to achieve, but with all the wisdom the 90-year-old has, we can learn a lot from him. Over the years Warren Buffett has given various interviews in which he gives snippets of advice. It’s some of these I want to focus on in helping me to make up my mind on whether the Aston Martin (LSE:AML) share price is good value for me.Understand what you’re buyingOne piece of advice is to “never invest in a business you cannot understand”. Buffett is modest in this regard, which is why he steers clear of some technology firms as he simply doesn’t fully understand their inner workings. For Aston Martin, I’m comfortable in saying that I do understand the business. The vast majority of revenue comes from producing sports cars. Even though the brand has worked on special projects in recent years (such as its creative collaboration with Triton Submarines), its core selling point is the cars that bear its name. 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 also understand why the Aston Martin share price has fallen so much this year. The stock is down 57%, and trades around 75p, a far cry from the IPO level only a few years back. The main reason for this move is simply the fact that the business is losing money. The loss before tax for 2019 was £104.3m, and in Q2 of this year, the business needed heavy cash injections. Lawrence Stroll led a cash raise of £536m, and even this wasn’t enough. So although I get Warren Buffett’s advice, I remain unsure whether to invest.Warren Buffett on debtWarren Buffett is not a fan of debt. He’s quoted as saying that “you can’t borrow money at 18 or 20 percent and come out ahead”. Even though interest rates are much lower now, the same principle applies with debt-laden firms. Sadly, this is the case for Aston Martin. As of Q3, net debt stood at £869m. To put this into perspective, Q3 revenue was £124m. The net debt is very high, and I think this is one of the key concerns as to why the Aston Martin share price will struggle to perform well and “come out ahead” anytime soon.On balance, even though I understand what Aston does, I simply don’t think the business is currently performing well enough to warrant an investment. If it manages to reduce debt levels and turn a profit in the future, then this will change my opinion. Opportunities elsewhereSpeaking of his team, Warren Buffett has offered a final piece of good advice when he said that “we have never forgone an attractive purchase because of the macro or political environment”. For me, just because I’m staying away from the Aston Martin share price doesn’t mean I won’t invest in something. Brexit and Covid-19 have meant many businesses are struggling. Yet there are good value cheap stocks I’m considering buying, one of which I wrote about here.center_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The proposed legislation, introduced by Congresswoman Betty McCollum, would prohibit the use of U.S. taxpayer funds from contributing to the military detention, interrogation, abuse, or ill-treatment of children by any country, including Israel.In the letter, faith leaders welcome H.R. 2407 as part of their commitment to protecting children and vulnerable communities in the U.S. and worldwide- including Palestinian children.  Signatories of the letter include the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, United Methodist Church, The Episcopal Church, and The Presbyterian Church (USA).  Faith-based organizations play a key role in garnering growing and diverse support for the Palestinian Child Rights bill, H.R. 2407.  Last month, Congresswoman McCollumspoke on the House Floor to thank 300+ Rabbinical Rabbis for their endorsement of H.R. 2407. Today’s letter reflects the increasing support among leading Christian denominations for the bill and efforts to hold Israel accountable for its treatment of Palestinian children. As documented by numerous human rights organizations, since the year 2000 an estimated 10,000 Palestinian children between the ages of 12 and 17 have been detained, prosecuted and incarcerated by the Israeli military in the occupied West Bank. Often dragged from their homes in the middle of the night by armed soldiers, they suffer physical and emotional violence and frequently face verbal abuse, humiliation, and intimidation.This week, a Congressional briefing is set to take place on the Universal Day of the Child, November 20, 2019, with Congresswoman Betty McCollum and Christian leadership to advocate for the rights of Palestinian children who are detained, prosecuted and incarcerated by the Israeli military in the West Bank.

Resistance spreads as government brutality grows in Turkey

first_imgProtesters behind makeshift barricades on Istiklal Street in Istanbul after police cleared Gezi Park, June 15.Photo: Jenna PopeJune 17 — As night fell on Istanbul June 15, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan unleashed paramilitary forces, called Jandarma, on protesters camped in historic Taksim Square. His aim was to stamp out the people’s movement sweeping Turkey.The gendarmes and police attacked with force and brutality. They used gas, rubber bullets and burning chemicals sprayed from water cannon. They clubbed and stomped injured people lying on the ground. Doctors trying to help the wounded were beaten and shot point-blank with tear gas canisters.A pregnant  woman lost her child. A 14-year-old, shot in the head with a tear gas canister, is in critical condition.After occupying the square, cops and gendarmes rampaged through the streets clubbing anyone they saw. They attacked hotels where people took refuge and flooded apartment buildings with gas. Plainclothes cops wielding sticks with nails joined in the attacks.In Ankara, the capital, cops attacked a funeral procession for 26-year-old Ethem Sarisuluk, shot to death by police on June 1. Dilan Dursun, a woman student, was hit in the head and is in a coma. All public gatherings in the city were illegally declared “illegal.”Police used tear gas and water cannons to clear Gezi Park of protesters the night of June 15.Photo: Jenna PopeThe Erdogan regime unleashed the new wave of violence the day after Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay met with U.S. intelligence officials in Washington. He said they discussed “fighting terrorism” and that the White House “understood” the situation in Turkey. (worldbulletin.net, June 14) On June 16, Turkish Minister for European Union Affairs Egemen Bagis announced that any  civilians entering Taksim Square would be considered “terrorists.” (boingboing.net, June 16)The giant protest movement sweeping Turkey began as a response to police brutality. Erdogan and his allies thought more brutality would end it. They were wrong.The massive use of force has succeeded so far in denying the people of Istanbul the right to enter their city’s most historic square. But in every other street and neighborhood of that ancient metropolis, in every other city and town in the country, resistance continues.‘Everywhere is resistance!’On the night of June 15, as people across Istanbul heard of the attack on Taksim, they poured into the streets, sometimes building barricades. Thousands from Istanbul’s Asian side stormed a bridge across the Bosphorus strait that divides Asia from Europe, trying to reach Taksim on the European side.The next day, people were in the streets in cities, towns and villages across Turkey, chanting “No surrender” and “Taksim is everywhere, everywhere is resistance.”And on June 17, hundreds of thousands of workers, members of the Confederation of Public Workers (KESK) and the Confederation of Revolutionary Trade Unions (DISK) went on strike against police terror. They were joined by unions of doctors, dentists and engineers. Banks were closed and buses didn’t run.As of this writing, thousands of union workers and supporters, led by miners, have marched to the police lines surrounding Taksim. Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc threatened to call out the army if protests continue.Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party (AKP) also mobilized their supporters. Hundreds of thousands were brought in from around the country to the Istanbul waterfront to hear the prime minister speak on June 16.Prominent at the pro-regime rally were members of the openly fascist Nationalist Action Party (MHP). MHP’s founder, Col. Alparslan Turkes, was a CIA asset whose counter-guerrilla death squad program murdered thousands in the 1970s. In December 1978, MHP paramilitaries, called Gray Wolves, massacred hundreds of migrant workers, mostly Alevi Kurds, in the  village of Maras.At the pro-AKP rally, Erdogan tried to portray his regime as defending Turkey against “foreign interference.” But even as the protests raged, the AKP government passed a law opening Turkey’s energy sector wide to outside investors. The AKP government has also defied popular opinion by making NATO Turkey a forward base for the the Pentagon-CIA covert war against Syria.While Turkey’s U.S.-allied regime openly attacks unarmed protesters with chemicals banned by the Geneva Convention, Washington claims without proof that Syria used chemical weapons against U.S.-backed “insurgents.” Ironically, on May 30, Turkish police detained “rebels” bringing sarin gas from Turkey into Syria.The Pentagon and CIA are working toward a wider sectarian war in the region. The people’s uprising in Turkey is a setback to those plans.The Turkish Communist Party (TKP) in a June 17 statement described “the fundamental achievement” of the resistance: “The people have risen up in Turkey. The brutality of police might have an impact on the pace and form of the resistance. But it is just that. No power can push our people back to indifference and apathy or force them to bow down. The previous widespread belief that ‘we will not achieve anything’ has been buried into past. The price that we paid was not paid of no avail. This achievement is our country’s today and future. Our people deserve to imagine the future. Our people have to look at the future. The precondition to win the future is obvious: To get organized!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Navigating Trade with Taiwan and China

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen’s strategically timed offer to loosen import restrictions on U.S. pork and beef with meat-leanness additive ractopamine could end decades of stalemate on a trade deal.But U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and some key lawmakers will need to stop favoring China amid rising tensions over trade, military, and COVID-19. American Farm Bureau Executive Director Dale Moore wants a balanced approach not based on “political whims.”“We want the United States doing everything it can to get China, mainland China, and Taiwan as solid, stable markets. And, we’ll certainly pass that along to folks on Capitol Hill, folks in the executive branch, as well.”Moore suggests a deal with Taiwan could even hasten a Phase 2 deal with China. Taiwan is the U.S.’ fifth-largest market for Ag goods. U.S.-Taiwan Business Council President Rupert Hammond-Chambers talks about Trade Ambassador Robert Lighthizer putting China ahead of Taiwan on trade deals.“If Mr. Lighthizer is thinking about a choice between one-side or the other, he’s making a ‘false choice.’ The other fear I have is that USTR will pocket this concession, and all they’ll do is relaunch the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement, the TIFA, which they have had on hold since 2016.”The Business Council echoed the earlier call of more than 160 U.S. House members of both parties for USTR to launch trade deal talks with Taiwan as soon as possible.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Sep 1, 2020 Previous articlePurdue Crops Field Day Moves VirtualNext articlePurdue Crops Field Day Moves Virtual on the HAT Wednesday Podcast Andy Eubank SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Navigating Trade with Taiwan and Chinalast_img read more

Information minister steps in, prevents Jamaican journalist from being expelled

Immigration officials refused to rescind the expulsion order after she had demonstrated that they had misread the permit’s expiry date. Louison defended the immigration officials, insisted that Thomas had overstayed and regretted that Caribupdate had “politicised” the case. But he said he arranged things for Thomas “in the interests of press freedom.” She will be able to stay in Grenada until 8 March.___________________________15.02.08 – Call for explanation of expulsion order against Jamaican journalistReporters Without Borders today expressed shock at the treatment of Jamaican national, Tenesha Thomas, of the regional news agency Caribupdate who was arrested yesterday on the grounds that her visa had expired and told she would be expelled today.The worldwide press freedom organisation said the decision was all the more surprising since the Grenadian immigration service had admitted it had made a mistake. The organisation added it hoped this was not an act of covert censorship and urged the government to provide an explanation.The political journalist was arrested and held at St.George’s by four agents of Grenada’s immigration service on the grounds that her visa had expired. She pointed out to them that officials had inverted the day and the month, confusing 8 February (8/02) with 2 August (2/08). She also showed them her return ticket to Jamaica, for the first week of March. Despite finally admitting their mistake and despite attempts by Caribupdate’s management to contact the office of the Prime Minister, Keith Mitchell, the expulsion remains in force. She was due to leave for Jamaica during today (15 February).The Media Workers Association of Grenada has condemned the incident as “an attack on press freedom”.Thomas, who formerly worked for Jamaica’s leading daily, The Gleaner, arrived in Grenada on 1st January 2008 to report on forthcoming general elections for Caribupdate with responsibility for covering the opposition campaign. The Founder and director of Caribupdate, Hamlet Mark, himself from Grenada, said the expulsion would mean his media was being punished.“We are shocked by the plight of Tenesha Thomas for more than one reason,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Jamaica and Grenada are linked through the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) which eases circulation of residents from one country to another as well as extensions of periods of stay. How can the expulsion of this journalist be maintained even though it has been admitted that her papers were in order? The incident gives rise to fears that the authorities are using Thomas to mete out unfair treatment to Caribupdate.”This is not the first such case in the region. Two journalists from CARICOM countries were forced to leave Antigua and Barbuda, another member state, on 12 and 13 June 2007 in the same circumstances (See the 15 June 2007 press release). last_img read more

He has been getting state protection but a recent risk evaluation led to the withdrawal of his bullet-proof car.“We condemn the attempts to intimidate Rugeles and we urge the authorities to ensure that he is fully protected against the threats to which he is regularly exposed,” Reporters Without Borders deputy programme director Virginie Dangles said. Reporters Without Borders has registered several cases of threats against journalists by paramilitary groups, criminal gangs and others in Colombia since the start of 2014.Colombia is ranked 126th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
