Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. One blue-chip stock stands out to me as a FTSE 100 bargain right now. That company is accounting software business Sage (LSE: SGE).FTSE 100 bargainAccounting software is, in many ways, quite a defensive business. As any small business owner who has used accounting software regularly will tell you, finding a good software package is vital. And once you found one, changing to something else can be a nightmare.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…Therefore, companies like Sage tend to have a steady and predictable income stream. That suggests that the coronavirus crisis might not have a considerable impact on the group.Although Sage will probably lose some of its customers over the next few weeks and months as businesses struggle to survive, its customers that remain solvent are unlikely to be changing their software providers at such a challenging time.Recent trading updates from the business support this view. In a trading update published on the 6 April, the company declared that organic growth in recurring revenue, which is 90% of total group sales, was ahead of forecasts for the six months to the end of March.However, the company also said it is impossible to quantify the impact the coronavirus crisis will have on sales at this stage.With that being the case, management expects organic recurring revenue growth will be below the previously guided range of 8% to 9% for the current financial year.This forecast is disappointing, but compared to other FTSE 100 stocks, it’s quite good.Indeed, many of Sage’s blue-chip peers are now forecasting a decline in revenues for the full year. The company stands out for the fact that it is still expecting organic growth.That’s why Sage looks to be a FTSE 100 bargain at current levels. After recent declines, the stock is trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 21. This is below its long-term average of around 25.On top of this, the group also appears committed to its dividend. Management has suspended the company’s £250m share buyback – to shore up liquidity – but the dividend is still in place. After recent declines, the stock supports a dividend yield of around 3%.Handsome returns Considering all of the above, it looks as if this FTSE 100 bargain could deliver handsome returns for investors over the next 12 to 24 months. Before the coronavirus outbreak, shares in Sage were trading at around 810p.A return to this level could produce a capital gain of nearly 39%.On top of this, the company’s 3% dividend yield will add another 6% over the next 24 months. This implies that investors buying today could see a total return of around 45% over the next two years.With so many FTSE 100 stocks cutting their payouts to shareholders and warning on profits, Sage stands out as a FTSE 100 bargain in stormy waters.As such, if you’re looking for a high-quality stock to buy in the current market, it might be worth taking a look at this UK software champion. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Royston Wild | Monday, 10th May, 2021 | More on: SAFE 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.

Broader movements on UK share markets are pretty stable on Monday. The FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 are both struggling for traction, softness that reflects in part a fresh rally in sterling. However, not all British stocks are stuck in neutral: the Safestore Holdings (LSE: SAFE) share price, for instance, has exploded.Shares in the self-storage operator soared above 946p for the first time ever earlier in the session. Safestore has settled back from these levels, but at 933p per share, it remains 7% higher in Monday trading.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…Safestore soars as trading acceleratesSafestore’s share price has soared after lifting its full-year forecasts following strong recent trading.The property share — which has operations in the UK, France, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands — said that revenues soared 10.9% in the three months to April, to £43.7m. At constant exchange rates this represented an 11.2% year-on-year improvement.Safestore’s closing occupancy rate for its second fiscal quarter was up 16.8% at 5.635m square feet, it added. And as a percentage of its total lettable space, the occupancy rate surged to 80.7% from 71.1% in the corresponding 2020 quarter.Chief executive Frederic Vecchioli commented that “the strong trading momentum reported for our first quarter has accelerated in the second quarter of the year.” He noted that the improvement was “driven by the strength of our UK performance combined with continued robust results from our French and Spanish businesses.”Safestore saw revenues rise by a more modest 9.8% at constant currencies in its first financial quarter.Forecasts raised!Looking ahead, Vecchioli said that the company’s improving momentum during the second quarter “gives me further confidence in relation to the outlook for the full year.” And as a result Safestore now expects to report adjusted diluted earnings per share of 37p to 38p for the 12 months to October 2021.This would represent a year-on-year improvement of between 23% and 26%. Back in February, the firm tipped earnings per share growth “towards the top of the range of analysts’ forecasts” around 34.6p.Safestore described trading in its core UK marketplace as “very strong” and revenues here rose 13.9% in the first quarter to £33.6m. Its closing occupancy (as a percentage of maximum letting area) meanwhile rose 11.2% to 81%. Safestore said the sales spike was thanks to like-for-like growth. But three store openings and the annualisation of the acquisitions of its St John’s Wood and Chelsea stores also made an impact. Trading at its UK division also benefited from management fees that it received from joint venture operations in the Netherlands and Belgium.Safestore added that its Birmingham Middleway and Paris Magenta stores are due to open during the first half of 2021. It also said that “our new store pipeline will grow over the coming months and our strong and flexible balance sheet provides significant funding capacity.” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address Safestore’s share price rockets to an all-time peak after raising guidance!

Royal Oils and Gold Series Launch “Crowns of Heritage” Campaign to Help Black Families…

first_img Facebook Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Pinterest TAGS  Twitter CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– In honor of Black History Month, P&G’s Royal Oils by Head & Shoulders and Gold Series from Pantene enlisted the help of AfricanAncestry.com to trace the DNA of the team behind the brands and launch a journey of discovery that is #RootedInScience. The campaign, aptly entitled “Crowns of Heritage,” encourages people to reflect on the missing pieces of their family history and receive an opportunity to reconnect with the African roots of their family tree. The Crowns of Heritage Sweepstakes will give away 50 AfricanAncestry.com DNA test kits, giving winning individuals the ability to broaden their sense of identity and celebrate a fuller picture of their history. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005619/en/ The P&G Haircare Brands’ Black History Month Campaign reinforces #RootedInScience as a Foundational Link to Black Heritage and Black Haircare. (Photo: Business Wire) From the inception of both brands, science and heritage have played a key role in filling a void in the marketplace for Black consumers with products designed to meet and support their haircare needs. As part of the Crowns of Heritage campaign, more than a dozen P&G Multicultural Haircare Brand Build Builders, Ambassadors, Executives, and Scientists took the AfricanAncestry.com DNA test and participated in a group reveal. Led by Dr. Gina Paige, AfricanAncestry.com co-founder, the team celebrated new connections and missing links in their family stories. The reveal also provided relevant historical context on the results and shared connections with other prominent Black innovators and leaders, reinforcing a legacy of strength and resilience, with hope for a more informed future. “This last year reinforced how important connection is to grow and thrive. Technology has been integral to staying connected to family and deepen those relationships,” said Nadirah Mutala of P&G Beauty Communications. “The Crowns of Heritage campaign allowed all of us to expand our family group to include ethnic groups from West and Central Africa. Now, we can fully embrace and explore a more complete picture of ourselves. The power of this knowledge is a gift that we can share with our families to empower us for generations. We want to give this gift to more people.” The power of science to unlock important answers is never more powerful and poignant than it is for us today. This legacy shows – from DNA testing to hair microscopy, P&G has committed to decades of cutting-edge innovation and technology, plus ongoing research of textured hair in partnership with Black scientists, dermatologists and stylists to create Royal Oils and Gold Series haircare products. Beyond the technology, the talented and dedicated team of Black experts who worked on these products combined personal passion with rich scientific knowledge to ensure that the range of products are effectively formulated for every stage of the curly, coily hair journey – natural, relaxed, blow outs, protective styles, and so much more. “Our team of Black scientists has made understanding our hair their mission, using specialized testing protocols on hair samples from people of African descent to ensure optimal performance and best-in-class product benefits,” said Dr. Rolanda Wilkerson, Principal Scientist of P&G Beauty. “Royal Oils and Gold Series are #RootedInScience, and that underpins all we do to ensure we deliver products that truly serve Black consumers. We turned to science in this campaign and our formulas to deepen the connection with the larger community, for a deeper understanding of our heritage and products designed for them.” The power of science and passion underpins the partnership with AfricanAncestry.com, which owns the largest database of proprietary African lineages for the Crowns of Heritage campaign. AfricanAncestry.com has demystified the African roots of more than a million people across the diaspora, underscoring the deep desire and need for people to better understand who they are in today’s America and across the world. “We are thrilled about our partnership with Royal Oils and Gold Series, and their commitment to science and innovation that empowers them to better understand themselves and their consumers,” said Dr. Gina Paige. “Our hair identity is a cornerstone of the Black beauty experience, and we hope this alignment deepens and enhances how we view ourselves and Africa in a very powerful, transformative way.” Join Royal Oils, Gold Series and AfricanAncestry.com to share your #CrownsofHeritage this Black History Month:WATCH the Royal Oils and Gold Series Crowns of Heritage video: https://youtu.be/sbCE94TjI1k.ENTER to win 1 of 50 AfricanAncestry.com DNA Tests between now and February 28, 2021, at crownsofheritage.com.JOIN the conversation by sharing how you’re connecting with your African heritage this Black History Month using the #CrownsofHeritage hashtag and tagging @pantene, @headandshoulders, and @africanancestry on your social channels.
