Second place goes to Stock Spirits with an average of 2.36, third to AG Barr with 2.27, and fourth to C&C Group with 1.72.More pop less fizzThe data collected reflects the past performance of the companies analysed. Investment performance depends on the future. Therefore, broker recommendations can serve as a useful guide for the future. I have typically used the highest percentage of buy or outperform recommendations in picking the best prospect.By this measure, Stock Spirits is the winner. As of 14 May, 100% of recommendations for the share were either buy or outperform. Nichols comes dead last; all five suggestions are that the stock should be held. These are, of course, smaller-cap stocks, and analyst coverage is relatively low, which may distort the results.If we look at share price forecasts for the two stocks, the highest expectations for Nichols and Stock Spirits are 49.5% and 53.2% gains, respectively, over 12 months. There is not much separating the two stocks here, yet the analysis of the recommendations provides a stark difference. Something does not quite add up.Sharing the best drinkNichols recently announced it is suspending its dividend despite having £40m in the bank, which is enough to cover the dividend payment four times over, and zero debt. Investors will be disappointed by this, but it does point to Nichols having the edge over Stock Spirits in financial strength. Stock Spirits is by no means a slouch in the balance sheet department. However, given the coronavirus crisis, I would tend to favour the additional strength and past performance of Nichols. However, Stock Spirits looks like a solid company and is favoured by a few brokers. 0.3296 0.478% 22.07% Credit profile 14.25% 4.74% 32.19% £551.14 10.68% net profit margin 8.31% 0.9958 3.55% 13.28% -0.7664% €312 CCR sales (millions) James J.

These types of companies may not usually take their shareholders on wild rides. However, steadier capital gains and dividends are usually on the cards. Add to that resilience to big price swings during recessions, and buying shares in the best small beverage company should be a rewarding experience in the long term.Turning out something fizzy in a can and slapping a label on it does not, however, guarantee success. Business models differ, consumer tastes have to be considered and marketed to appropriately, and competition is ever-present.

The double-decker’s eyes are large windows that offer panoramic city views. The four-person family here wanted a funky, luxuriously flavored home. The interior of the luxury sense is caused by subtle brass details. The choice of this metal was inspired by the bronze roofs visible through the windows. All-day sunbathing into the apartment allows the bronze surfaces to sound different colors and create a different mood each time. The large, black stone panels that cover the wall contrast with the brass and help it even more reveal.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasAnd these natural materials accentuate make it possible to neutralize the combination of concrete ceilings and light, almost white, wood flooring. The interior is engraved with one more color – a solid blue. This colorful velvet sofa is inviting in the living room, and blue in the bathroom, in the bedroom, in the details. The attic in the house is accompanied by white, elegant stairs.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasTo prevent the site from changing, the edge of its overlay is completed with a sloping edge – thus it more easily fits into the space. In the high-rise, the parent’s bedroom overlooks the city with windows overlooking to the city. Underneath the dining table, elegant, openwork thin-wall luminaires were chosen specially to avoid falling out of this view. The brass luminaire is lighted by the ceiling and the motifs of its shape are reciprocated in the glass partition of the shower next to it. From the bedroom you can access the terrace, which has a small sauna, jacuzzi.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasAnother terrace is also on the ground floor – where the family can enjoy the pleasures of outdoor cuisine. All apartment furniture and interior fittings are designed specifically for this home. It was not so simple to create such an interior: “Every architectural solution has created a new challenge, because everything was non-standard.” All the challenges have been cured and now in the eyes of the widespread open mind, the interior is full of harmony.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasProject gallerySee allShow lessMinomi House / Hankura DesignSelected ProjectsThe Quayside Mixed-use Development / CL3 ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Gedimino pr. 16, Vilnius 01103, LithuaniaLocation to be used only as a reference.

In Kharkov, an anti-fascist painted on the pedestal of toppled monument, under Lenin’s name, ‘ALIVE’.Sept. 30 — Four mass graves have been discovered around Nyzhnia Krynka village, near the town of Makeeva in the Donetsk People’s Republic. The latest one came to light Sept. 28.The graves were uncovered by the Donetsk people’s militias based on tips from local residents. Nyzhnia Krynka was recently liberated from the Azov Battalion of the National Guard, a unit serving the Ukrainian junta of neoliberal politicians, oligarchs and neo-Nazis.“Another grave was discovered,” Donetsk First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Purgin told the ITAR-TASS news agency on Sept. 28. “How many victims and how they died will be established during the exhumation.”Earlier, the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe, co-sponsor with Russia of a cease-fire agreement between Kiev and the independent Donbass republics, confirmed the existence of three mass graves, including two in an abandoned mine and one in the village.International experts from France and Russia are examining these sites, first uncovered on Sept. 23, two days after Kiev’s forces withdrew.RT reporter Maria Fimoshima visited two them. At one, chief medical examiner Konstantin Gerasimenko told her, “All four victims — they are all male — have multiple gunshot wounds to head and body. Their hands were taped behind their backs. Some of them were only in their underwear.”One of the victims was Nikita Kolomiytsev, a 21-year-old local resident. His mother, Galina, told RT: “The Ukrainian army took him away. … My husband went there and told them, ‘Take me instead of my son.’ But they said they had taken him for a further prisoner swap.”Russia has called on the United Nations and other international bodies to open an investigation of these war crimes.Junta sabotages prisoner exchangeA key provision of the controversial cease-fire pact is the 1-for-1 exchange of prisoners of war between the U.S.-backed regime in Kiev and the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.However, the people’s republics say the Ukrainian authorities are deliberately trying to sabotage the prisoner exchange. While the Donbass republics have exchanged actual POWs, and agreed to accept political prisoners detained by the junta in exchange, many of those sent by Kiev are civilians with no direct connection to the war, swept up in dragnets to fill out the list.On Sept. 24, the New York Times published a rare article critical of the junta, “Ukraine picks motley group to exchange for prisoners.” While repeating the standard U.S. lies about Russian military intervention and mislabeling all opponents of the Kiev junta as “pro-Russian separatists,” the article also quotes several civilians who were falsely used in the prisoner exchange.“I am a civilian and I was included just to fill out the numbers,” 17-year-old Nikita Podikov told the Times. He was kidnapped by retreating Ukrainian soldiers two weeks earlier. “They arrested me, beat me for two days and then kept me for trading.”“On Sunday,” the Times noted, “he wound up in a prisoner swap of 27 men and one woman, only seven of whom were rebel fighters.”So far the uneven prisoner swaps have continued, most recently on Sept. 28. In light of the grisly discoveries in Nyzhnia Krynka, many in Donbass are wondering about the true fate of captured militia fighters.Neo-Nazis rampage in Kharkov, OdessaAfter their ignominious defeat by the Donbass militias, the fleeing battalions of the Ukrainian National Guard — actually fascist gangs in uniform — have flooded cities of southeastern Ukraine in recent days, spreading terror among the primarily Russian-speaking population.The city of Kharkov, a stronghold of anti-fascist, anti-coup protests earlier this year, is now under siege by Kiev’s armed forces.A peace march called by the Communist Party of Ukraine (KPU) there was brutally repressed on Sept. 27 by fascists, with the aid of police. Local officials and far-right Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov had banned the march. At least 23 activists were arrested, including Alla Alexander, first secretary of the Kharkov KPU, and communist flags and leaflets were burned. (UkraineAntiFascistSolidarity.wordpress.com)Then on Sept. 28, the emboldened Nazis — including members of the Azov Battalion, the Svoboda party and the Social-Nationalist Assembly — destroyed Ukraine’s largest monument of Soviet communist leader V.I. Lenin, at Kharkov’s Freedom Square. Several local residents who attempted to stop the vandalism were beaten bloody by the fascists, including one man who reportedly later died in the hospital.The next day, hundreds of angry Kharkov residents gathered on the square, bringing flowers to the pedestal where Lenin’s statue had stood and starting to remove Nazi graffiti. In the evening, though, the fascists returned, scattering the flowers and beating people on the square.The independent newspaper Verb reported Sept. 30 that National Guard units “now drive armored cars with machine gunners. They patrol the central streets of Kharkov, terrorizing civilians.”The same day, a man’s body was found crucified in a local churchyard. Local activists told Verb they believed it was the work of the Nazi gangs.In the port city of Odessa, a similar rampage by neo-Nazis led to the deaths of at least 48 anti-fascists on May 2. On Sept. 30, two moderate opposition politicians — Nestor Shufrich and Nikolai Skorik — were attacked and beaten bloody by fascist goons outside the Regional State Administration as they tried to hold a press conference, according to the Odessa newspaper Timer. Shufrich, who participated in an advisory capacity in the cease-fire negotiations, was hospitalized with a concussion and broken nose.Today the fascists, furious at their military defeat by the people of Donbass, are striking out in anger and desperation. But their time is fast running out. The opposition to Washington’s coup regime and its neo-Nazi enforcers has been temporarily forced underground, but will grow stronger as winter sets in and austerity measures demanded by Western banks bite deep into the working class.The future was seen in the actions of an elderly man who scaled the pedestal of the toppled monument in Kharkov Sept. 30. Under the inscription “Lenin,” he painted a single word of hope: “ALIVE.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
WhatsApp Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up andrewLOVE/Hate has done “no favours for An Garda Siochana”, according to the a former detective who helped bring down some of the country’s most feared criminals.Sean Lynch served for over 30 years on the streets of Limerick and since his retirement he has said he is still “proud and passionate about the force”.But he believes the latest crime wave is being encouraged by the portrayal of fictional gangland figures in the hit RTÉ series.“Love/Hate is doing us no favours. These young lads getting tips off the TV on how to be criminals. It’s ridiculous to see Nidge and the rest of them young fellas portrayed like that”.“It’s all the drugs and killings that create the sensation and glorification and that’s what we need to change in society.”Mr Lynch will hold a number of Crime Prevention meetings in Limerick West where communities are to get advice on home protection from crime prevention officers.Meetings are scheduled for Ballybrown, Mungret and Patrickswell in the coming weeks where people will be given advice on methods to safeguard their properties in the winter months.Mr Lynch commented: “It is very disappointing that we still have no Crime Prevention Officer in Limerick since the last person retired in May. Limerick is a county that needs a Crime Prevention Officer and I would urge the Government to make a speedy appointment.
