Should I invest in AIM stock Moonpig after sales soar?

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address Should I invest in AIM stock Moonpig after sales soar? Moonpig (LSE:MOON) is a recently-listed AIM stock that operates an online marketplace for personalised greetings cards. It’s well known and over the past two decades has amassed a market share three times bigger than its nearest competitor. Is it a viable long-term investment though?Lockdown beneficiaryMoonpig’s recent growth has undoubtedly come from the pandemic-induced lockdowns. It floated to a warm analyst reception, with many rating it a buy. The company has a market cap of £1.4bn and listed on 2 February at £4.40 a share. Since then, the Moonpig share price has reached a high of £4.72 but has fallen back to £4.20.5G 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…While the group has benefited from the temporary stay-at-home economy, I think it will continue to have a bright future ahead. It ultimately takes the hassle out of physically choosing and posting a card, so repeat custom accounts for 78% of its revenue. Moonpig has built and maintained a strong position in the UK and the Netherlands.Prior to Valentine’s Day 2021, the group enjoyed its strongest trading week ever. Along with an increase in orders, it’s seeing a notable increase in average order values too. That’s due to a rise in customers attaching gifts to their card orders.I personally know a lot more men than women who use Moonpig out of convenience, particularly when working away from home. I think this indicates a hold on a niche market that could remain sticky.Competitive arenaHowever, there are risks to the business. It’s operating in a highly competitive industry where savvy marketing is vital to keep it ahead of the game. Supermarkets are major competitors, particularly on price and convenience. The gifting market is rapidly evolving, and I think many people are going off physical gift cards for environmental reasons.While an increase in customer orders boost revenues, it also leads to further expense as the group must invest in delivering quickly. It’s also had to increase temporary staffing levels to meet rising orders. And lockdown-related costs, such as enhanced hygiene and social distancing measures, have also raised expenses. As such it expects underlying earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) for FY21 to roughly match FY20.I think its sticky customer base bodes well for the future, but its forward price-to-earnings ratio is 32, so it could be considered expensive.AIM stock riskBuying AIM stocks comes with liquidity risk. This means there are few buyers and sellers compared with a highly liquid market like the FTSE 100. So if I buy Moonpig shares and then want to sell in a hurry, I may be forced into taking a price lower than I’d like. Going forward, it’s focused on enhancing its marketing activity to speed up customer acquisition and encourage further growth. It’s expectations for the full year to the end of April are to double revenues year-on-year.I think the company does have the potential to stay strong, but there are a number of risks and ultimately the share price puts me off investing.

The Bessborough residence is located in the district of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce in Montreal. The project consists of the complete renovation of the ground floor of a duplex dating back from the 1950s. The challenge was to open this 900-ft2 space by maximizing living spaces while keeping a certain sense of spatial division. The architectural concept is build around three “blocks”. These volumes articulate the space while playing on the notion of wall.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Adrien WilliamsIn the center, the black volume defines the circulation and acts as a filter between the various functions. This volume, introducing a new staircase, play on its transparency by using a rhythm between full and empty using variations of glass, steel rods and Mdf panels. The wooden volume brings a warm aspect in the whole space. It contains on one hand, a library and of the other one, a walk-in adjacent to the master bedroom. The grey volume, simple and sleek, allows hiding diverse functions of service as well as the bathroom.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsReinforcing the degree of abstraction of the project, the choice of minimalist furniture and lamps echoes the palette of textures composed of concrete, wood and steel.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsProject gallerySee allShow lessSkyPlay: North Perth School of Learning / Tom Godden Architects & Matthew Crawford A…Selected ProjectsAD Classics: Master Plan for Chandigarh / Le CorbusierArchitecture Classics Share “COPY” Photographs:  Adrien Williams Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/898567/bessborough-residence-nature-humaine Clipboardlast_img read more

Ell House / Ravi Handa Architect + AAmp Studio

From the county road, Ell House’s dark silhouette brings its natural surroundings into sharp contrast. Its simple lines are inspired by Prince Edward County’s rural vernacular. While the gable roof is reminiscent of the region’s barns, the L shape references the extensions built on farmhouses over generations. The building’s form is also a technical response to the area’s prevailing winds. One wing shields the other, providing a peaceful indoor and outdoor living area.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletA secondary residence and rental property, Ell House was designed to be a vacation home. The clients wanted to separate the private areas from the common ones. Therefore, each of the two wings has its own purpose—the sleeping area with its four bedrooms and two baths, and the common area where the kitchen, dining room, and living room flow seamlessly into one another. The simplicity of this layout fosters an intuitive understanding of the space.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe glass vestibule is the first point of contact with the house. Connecting the two structures, it also serves as a decompression chamber of sorts. Spacious and generous in both natural light and expansive views, the room provides a moment of relaxation upon arrival. You can set your luggage down, take in the waterfront, and then access the common area to the left or the bedrooms to the right. The building’s monochrome aesthetic, emphasized by its charred cedar cladding, reflects the contrasts at play with the immediate environment—the inside is calm but outside the winds can reach up to 75 km/h.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletIn both wings, a pale7e of natural materials and understated colours creates an interior that’s minimalistic yet inviting. To add to the common area’s warmth, the kitchen, dining room and living room share the same bright, airy space where the cathedral ceiling accentuates the openness and serves as a reminder of the house’s shape. The natural surroundings are showcased by the openings, where wooden frames create the impression of moving works of art.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe vast lake and rural landscape can be admired from the master bedroom or from the dining room table. In the common area, the large sliding doors open onto the courtyard and the blue water beyond. Special attention was given to each opening. The kitchen window allows you to see when guests arrive, and the small square window in the living room is a nod to the owner’s youngest son, as well as a way of inviting all generations to gather in the same space.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletIn the private area hallway, the windows are aligned in front of each bedroom door, promoting natural ventilation and bathing the area with a rhythmic play of light in the afternoon. By the sheer simplicity and relevance of its design, Ell House magnifies the stark contrast of its natural setting and provides a peaceful living space that embodies the notion of shelter—a reflection of architecture in its purest formSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Guild House / Realrich Architecture WorkshopSelected ProjectsMR Group Showroom / IND ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Ell House / Ravi Handa Architect + AAmp Studio Houses Ell House / Ravi Handa Architect + AAmp StudioSave this projectSaveEll House / Ravi Handa Architect + AAmp Studio “COPY” Save this picture!© Maxime Brouillet+ 20Curated by Paula Pintos Share Photographs Photographs:  Maxime Brouillet Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Contractor: Reeves Fine Homes 2020 Architects: AAmp Studio, Ravi Handa Architect Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAAmp StudioOfficeFollowRavi Handa ArchitectOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPrince EdwardOn FacebookCanadaPublished on November 14, 2020Cite: “Ell House / Ravi Handa Architect + AAmp Studio” 14 Nov 2020.

It uses virtual reality to simulate the sights and sounds of a shopping centre as experienced by someone on the autism spectrum by taking people inside the National Autistic Society’s viral film ‘Can you make it to the end?’.It is the latest event in the National Autistic Society’s ‘Too Much Information’ public awareness campaign, which launched in April to increase public understanding of autism, and is one of the first times virtual reality technology has been used to raise awareness of the condition.intu Bromley will also be rolling out a number of measures in 2017 to help people with autism, including awareness training for all team members and specially designed alert cards to help intu’s staff support customers with autism.The VR experience will be toured around the UK, and hosted in 15 Intu shopping centres and other venues, supported by Tangle Teezer. A downloadable app and VR goggles can be ordered to allow the public to view the VR on their own phones. The charity is also providing a schools pack to teach children about ‘too much information’ with an accompanying lesson plan about autism, available to order on its website.Mark Lever, chief executive of the National Autistic Society said:“Half of autistic people and their families sometimes or often don’t leave their houses because they may receive judgemental and negative reactions to their autism from other members of the public. Virtual reality is such a fantastic medium and we want to use it to help people identify with a young autistic boy who is having a crisis in a shopping centre.”  201 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Tagged with: virtual reality About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority

first_img News Help by sharing this information March 26, 2021 Find out more to go further Harassment of Ukrainian TV journalists Follow the news on Ukraine Ukraine’s National Council for Television and Radio Broadcasting has revoked the licence of Priamyi FM, an opposition radio station, and continues to pressure its sister broadcaster, Priamyi TV. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the harassment of this privately-owned media group for nearly a year and calls for Priamyi FM’s licence to be restored.The station’s licence was withdrawn on 3 September on the grounds that it did not comply with a requirement to begin broadcasting with a year of being issued broadcast frequencies. It is true that Priamyi FM did not use two of the frequencies it was assigned but that was because they were defective, as the radio station reported in December 2019.Reputedly close to the government, the Council ignored Priamyi FM’s request for new frequencies and has instead now rescinded the radio station’s licence without any warning – a first in the Council’s history. The Priamyi media group has announced that it will appeal against the decision.Priamyi TV has meanwhile been subjected to three inspections by the Council within the space of six months – in January, April and June of this year. Each inspection had a legal justification – insults on the air, for example. But other media guilty of similar violations have not been inspected.The National Bureau of Investigation (DBR), which polices the police in Ukraine, has also had its sights on Priamyi TV since the summer of 2019, when it began investigating its owner, Volodimir Makienko, on suspicion of embezzlement. The DBR searched his apartment in November 2019 and was given permission by a court in the Kiev district of Pechersk on 18 February 2020 to seize administrative documents from Priamyi TV. They were returned after no incriminating evidence was found.Priamyi TV producer Svitlana Orlovska says a new raid on the TV channel is due to be carried out soon while DBR chief investigator Oleh Koretskyi said on 8 July that he had been under considerable pressure from his superiors to ensure that Priamyi TV stopped broadcasting.“In the run-up to local elections in October, the withdrawal Priamyi FM’s licence is an initial, dangerous step towards censorship,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The repeated, arbitrary inspections of Priamyi TV constitute unacceptable political pressure. All these ploys violate article 5 of Ukraine’s broadcasting law and threaten the media pluralism that is necessary for democratic debate. We call for the radio station’s licence to be restored and for an end to the harassment of the TV channel.”A TV news channel that is critical of the current government and has many viewers, Priamyi TV is itself receiving a great deal of criticism nowadays because of the favourable treatment it gives to former President Petro Poroshenko, and its hostility towards his opponents. A former pro-Poroshenko parliamentarian, Priamyi TV’s owner insisted in 2017 that he would not interfere in its editorial policies.The broadcast media in Ukraine are extremely polarized by the country’s divisive politics. Ukraine is ranked 96th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

We have people sanding down the benches out here for painting,” Nisbet said.“The kids are doing things like economics activities. We have math booths that are going through every grade level. Biology is doing life cycles for students about frogs. … They’re doing stress balls for anxiety for testing. We have people that are reading and working with some of the different groups with different books. They’re doing manicures for teachers.”First Basin Credit Union also donated funds to buy the students pizza and the culinary department made cookies.Kayla Lopez, a 10-year-old fourth-grader, and Karina Lujan, an 11-year-old fifth-grader, thought the morning was lots of fun and liked the idea of OC coming to their campus.“I think that idea is very cool because we get to learn new stuff and we learn from the people that come from Odessa College and it’s very cool just listening to them and having the activities they give us,” Lopez said.OC English professor and Ector County Independent School District Board Secretary Donna Smith has been volunteering at Zavala for several months.“I think this is a really great experience. I think it’s good for us to interact for the kids. They’re so appreciative and they’re so enthusiastic. I just came out of a second grade class. We were reading books and we were working on predicting what would happen next. They were amazing. I didn’t even have to finish reading the book, because they had it solved, maybe half way through. It’s just real energizing. I’m really proud of OC and I’m really proud of these folks at Zavala. They’re doing a terrific job.”Principal Linda Voss said it meant a lot to have everyone from OC dedicate so much time to Zavala. She added that it shows they are invested in the campus and exposes the students to college.“It helps the kids feel appreciated. The activities are helping them learn, but it’s fun, as well,” Voss said.Zavala is in its fifth year of improvement required under state accountability standards, along with Noel Elementary and Ector Middle School. If the campuses don’t come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.More Information ECISD, OC logos.jpg Twitter Pinterest ECISD, OC logos.jpg About 200 people from virtually every department at Odessa College converged on Zavala Elementary School Friday to inject some fun, offer teachers a break and help spruce up the campus.Katie Nisbet, associate dean of academic partnerships at OC, said the idea came about when she and Associate Dean for Innovation and Learning Robert Rivas were talking about something they could do that they thought would be “incredibly impactful.”“We decided this would be an awesome undertaking that would be a lot of fun — a little crazy — but mainly a lot of fun,” Nisbet said.Kindergarteners and first graders spent the morning in the gym with people from the OC student services department, student life and several different student organizations on campus. 5-year-old kindergartener Aaliyah Walker hula hoops infront of Odessa College students Ashley Livesay and Ginger Frazier.
