Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Despite the index’s recent rise, there are a number of FTSE 100 stocks that could offer long-term capital appreciation potential. Their strategies, the prospect of improving industry conditions and relatively weak investor sentiment could combine to produce favourable buying opportunities.Clearly, defining which companies are among the best UK shares to buy now is very subjective. Furthermore, there are always risks ahead for every company that could derail their performances.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…However, from a risk/reward perspective, these three large-cap shares could offer investment potential within a Stocks and Shares ISA over the long term.A recovery opportunity among FTSE 100 stocksThe prospects for banks such as Lloyds remain relatively uncertain compared to many FTSE 100 stocks. Low interest rates and a weak economic outlook could harm their potential to deliver profit growth in the coming months, and even years.However, the bank’s valuation could reflect the risks it faces. For example, it trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 7. Furthermore, it has implemented various measures to improve its financial prospects, including cost reductions. The possible return of its dividend in the current year may also gather interest from passive income investors.A defensive play among UK sharesDefensive FTSE 100 stocks could hold significant appeal due to the challenging economic outlook. Although British American Tobacco faces risks including declining cigarette volumes, it could potentially overcome such threats due to price rises for its products and its plans to invest in reduced-risk products.The stock currently has a dividend yield of 8.5%. This is significantly higher than many UK shares, and could make it one of the best income opportunities available. Furthermore, its improving financial position and defensive characteristics may mean it offers greater stability and reliability, in terms of paying its dividend in a low interest rate environment.Online retail opportunityTesco could be another buying opportunity among FTSE 100 stocks. Its investment in online retailing appears to be paying off, with consumers increasingly shifting their spending towards digital channels.Weak consumer confidence and slow GDP growth could hold back its progress. They could prompt shoppers to become more price conscious. However, the company could outperform other UK shares because of its efficient structure, use of innovative new technology, and the strong loyalty it enjoys via its Clubcard scheme.Investing in the best FTSE 100 stocks todayClearly, defining which are the best UK shares to buy today is very much open to debate. Different investors will have very different views on the topic of which FTSE 100 stocks could outperform the index in the long run.However, by building a diverse portfolio of shares to reduce overall risk, it may be possible to pick out undervalued companies that can deliver strong returns in the coming years. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I think these 3 FTSE 100 stocks may be among the best UK shares to buy in an ISA today 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.

first_imgTuesday Aug 7, 2012 Meghan Mutrie takes rugby to West Africa with Right to Play Over the years we’ve done a lot to spread a positive message through rugby, so today we have a guest post from former player Meghan Mutrie, who recently travelled to Africa to share her love for rugby and sport, with Right To Play. Rugbydump typically isn’t the place for serious or emotional content but under the clever guise of a masculine sport, it can be (kind of like how you can pat another man on the bum as long as you’re both in athletic kit). One month has passed since my trip to Benin, West Africa with Right To Play and I still struggle to articulate what it was truly like when someone just casually asks. Africa was harsh, confusing, raw and incomprehensible. It was also reframing, promising, inspiring and fun. To give you the proper spiel, RTP is an international humanitarian organization that uses the power of sport and play to help children in disadvantaged countries, creating social change through education and development.RTP uses Olympians and professional athletes from various sports around the world to give their work international exposure (you may recognize their logo from the back of Chelsea’s jerseys) but they have only just started to break into rugby.I am an Athlete Ambassador for RTP, chosen because of my (glory days) time in a 7s and XVs Canadian jersey, and am very keen to strengthen the relationship between RTP and rugby. The two are a natural fit; like the legendary Shane Williams in an XS jersey.RTP invited me to Benin (one of 20 countries they’re established in) to see what their programs do at the ground level. I was blown away by what I saw; the kids who were allowed to just play were so much more aware, confident and happy. I used the opportunity to connect RTP with the rugby world by attempting to teach the sport to a village that had never seen a rugby ball.For more information about Right To Play, please visit their website and choose your appropriate country: http://www.righttoplay.comAlso check out as the two phenomenal organizations are eerily alike, but this one reaches its goals using rugby specifically, as opposed to all sport and play. A massive thanks to Rugbydump for helping me spread Right To Play’s brilliant work and hopefully strengthen the link between the organisation and rugby for the future.  Again, even with a video camera, it was impossible to capture and explain the experience but I tried with my camera from The Crowd Goes Wild, that crazy little New Zealand TV show.MeghanADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
