Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares It’s easy for us all, as investors, to be downbeat right now. The Covid-19 infection rate continues to rise and lockdown barriers are being put back up across the world. So earlier hopes of a sharp economic recovery are coming under scrutiny. But that’s no reason for investors to stop buying UK shares. Remember that fortunes tend to be made from stock investing over the long run. There remains a world of opportunity to buy stocks that could help you get rich and possibly even make a million.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…Great ways to make a millionKeywords Studios is one exciting UK share with what I see as millionaire-maker potential that I’d buy today.This company provides many services to video game and other software manufacturers at all stages of the life-cycle. From selling audio and art services, to assisting with localisation and providing player support, it has its finger on the pulse of what developers need. Gaming is the fastest-growing entertainment sector right now and Keywords Studios can expect profits to boom as demand for its services heats up.Iomart Group is another terrific tech stock that I think could help you make a million. The growth of flexible working has seen demand for cloud computing services take off in recent years. And this particular business offers everything that a company will need to transition from traditional IT models, like building critical infrastructure, providing security and helping with data protection.The cloud services market was tipped to continue exploding even before the coronavirus crisis shocked the world. And the pandemic will likely turbocharge adoption of Iomart and its peers’ services as homeworking becomes more and more relevant across the world.More UK shares to get rich withInvesting your cash in the e-commerce phenomenon is another great tactic to try and make a million. One of the best ways to do this, in my opinion, is through buying owners and operators of big box logistics and warehousing facilities like Clipper Logistics.Construction of these gigantic buildings cannot keep up with demand. Retailers and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies alike are in a fight to secure space to meet customer orders. Big box take up hit 22.4m sq ft in the first half, according to Savills’ latest Big Shed Briefing. This was the best first-half performance on record and up almost 20% from a year earlier.The impact that Covid-19 has had in boosting online shopping volumes has boosted Clipper Logistics’ profits outlook still further. The same can be said for GB Group, which provides address location and verification software for retailers to successfully dispatch goods to their customers. DotDigital can also look forward to rocketing earnings growth in the years ahead. This is a firm that allows companies to provide personalised shopping experiences to their online customers.Okay, the world might be heading for a global recession. But there are still plenty of top UK shares out there that could help you make a million. And the stock market crash allows you to pick up many of these at dirt-cheap prices too.

Newcastle icon Shearer gives glowing praise for Longstaff brothersby Ansser Sadiq18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United legend Alan Shearer was full of praise from the Longstaff brothers after Sunday’s 1-0 win over Manchester United. Playing alongside brother Sean in midfielder on his debut, Matty Longstaff scored the winning goal to cap off a memorable day at St. James’ Park.”What an amazing day for the Longstaff family. Well done and congratulations,” Shearer wrote on Twitter.Speaking on Match of the Day, Shearer added: It had energy, it had legs in midfield, it had good shape and dangerous at times on the counter attack but the stars of the show were the two brothers in midfield, Sean and Matty. Wow!”From the first minute Sean got stuck in, won the ball and put Newcastle on the front foot. It’s what they did. It got the crowd up, (it gave them) a little bit of energy that was obviously missing last weekend and it was a sign of things to come (in the first minute).”Matty wasn’t frightened to have a go at all. Look at his brother before he hit the bar saying ‘Go on, have a shot Wor Kid – just hit it!’ And he did! Steve described it as the enthusiasm of him and his brother spraying the ball around – both of them can do that, no problem at all if you give them time on the ball.”Sean’s long ball to Almiron, a lovely weighted pass – he didn’t need to take that touch, just hit it now. But the pass from Sean was fantastic. They linked well together, they understand each other’s game and it was keeping Newcastle going forward.”His goal: what a moment for him, what a moment for his family. What an unbelievable strike and momen for him. It will stay with him for his whole life.”The two of them were fantastic and his Dad should be very, very proud. What an unbelievable day for them and a great day for Newcastle, because they needed that result.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say

PARIS — Hundreds of protesters are trying to breathe new life into France’s apparently waning yellow vest movement with marches in Paris and gatherings in other cities, but numbers appeared down on their first demonstration of the new year.There were no reports of violence on the eighth consecutive Saturday of yellow vest protests, in contrast to some December demonstrations that degenerated into chaotic violence. Paris Metro lines were open.Authorities have warned that they won’t tolerate illegal acts. One known figure in the movement, Eric Drouet, was detained overnight this week for allegedly organizing an illegal demonstration. On Friday, government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said those still protesting “want insurrection.”The movement is named after fluorescent vests French motorists must keep in cars.The Associated Press
Mumbai: Marketers in India are missing potential opportunities to reach out to men in the categories where both genders are equal decision makers, according to a Kantar report. It revealed the disconnect between consumer and business opinions of gender portrayals in advertising. The AdReaction report noted that 58 percent ads on air target women exclusively, and only 35 percent are targeted towards both genders. While the clear majority of marketers globally (more than 75 percent) think they are avoiding gender stereotypes, 76 percent of female consumers and 71 percent of male consumers believe that the way they’re portrayed in advertising is completely out of touch, it said.

In the wake of the ‘MeToo’ movement, the industry globally claims they are actively designing for both genders and representing them in a progressive context. But less female marketers are convinced with the way theyre portraying men in the advertisements, it said. It observed that getting the gender placement right is important, especially from a digital and static perspective because it can be used as a targeting and optimisation variable in these channels.

This is closely followed by humour which has a critical role to play in improving the ad receptivity with both genders. “The report highlights that the bulk of ads in India are targeted at women; but marketers appear to be targeting them led more by stereotypes. Gender targeting should not be an either or decision and we need to challenge these outdated assumptions. From a portrayals perspective, more emphases need to be made towards aspirational and authoritative roles. The industry as a whole needs to be more aware than ever that things need to change, said Vishikh Talwar-managing director- Kantar Millward Brown, South Asia.
