Are you looking for that elusive 10-bagger? Soaring stocks like that aren’t needed when we can get nice annual dividends from top FTSE 100 shares, but picking up the odd few multi-baggers during your investment career can provide a very nice bonus.And stocks that multiply tenfold over 10 years are more common than you might think. Here are three, with some thoughts on how we could spot them.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…Sports fashionIf you can identify a new trend in its early days, you can set yourself up to make some serious money. JD Sports Fashion (LSE: JD), for example, has soared in value not just tenfold, but is up 3,200% over a decade. So a modest £1,000 invested in JD a decade ago would be worth £32,000 today.Well, actually, you’d have more than that, as JD has also been paying dividends. They only offer very modest yields, but they’d have made a welcome addition over the long term, especially if you’d reinvested the cash in new JD shares.The sport-to-street clothing market is one that has boomed — so much so that even Marks & Spencer is getting into it, though critics might suggest that’s a little late.But, while it might be possible to identify new booming sectors, getting the right company can be more of a challenge. JJB Sports, for example, went bust in 2012 (with some of its assets, perhaps ironically, being bought up by JD).Shake-upMelrose (LSE: MRO) specialises in buying up underperforming engineering companies, turning them round, and selling them on. The most recent headline acquisition was that of GKN, and it’s still too early to know what the outcome of that will be. But Melrose’s clear expertise in understanding and managing firms in the engineering sector has resulted in a decades-long string of successes.That’s resulted in a 10-year share price gain of 1,190%. So every £1,000 invested 10 years ago has grown to £11,900, and dividends of around 2% or a little more have added some more to the pot.It obviously wasn’t possible back in 2010 to know that Melrose would more than 10-bag by 2020, but through buying companies that are the best in their class, we can raise our chances of getting a long-term winner. Melrose is pretty much unique, and enviably good at what it does.GamesThose first two are FTSE 100 companies today, but my third example is in the FTSE 250. It’s Games Workshop (LSE: GAW), whose shares have recorded a decade gain of 2,570%. In these days of electronic gaming, Games Workshop is different in specialising in physical wargaming figures, including model soldiers, Lord of The Rings figures, and a whole host of others. Earnings have been soaring — and in the past five years, the dividend has accelerated dramatically, offering yields of around 2.5%.Of the three stocks here, this is the one I think was probably the most difficult to spot for its multi-bagger potential, and even with the benefit hindsight I don’t know what signs there were back in 2010 that the business would perform so outstandingly well. But there’s obviously a lot of luck involved in chasing multi-baggers.

By Alex ShawWhat a difference a year makes.After bowing ignominiously out of their own Rugby World Cup at the pool stage in 2015, England have embarked on a 14-match winning streak – equalling the national record set by Martin Johnson and his side in 2003 – and become only the second side in the professional era to see out a calendar year with a 100% record.The road wasn’t without its bumps over the last month and we take stock of the positives and negatives to come out of England’s autumnal campaign that saw them record victories over South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia at Twickenham.Belief, leadership and growing experienceThe mental part of the game plays such a significant role in the outcome of matches and it’s here, above all other areas, that England have developed the most over the past year and this has been particularly evident in their last four matches.The 10-year hoodoo at the hands of South Africa was driven into the turf, an inferior opposition in Fiji was not underestimated and a previously undiscovered level of resilience was found against Argentina. Against Australia, Eddie Jones’ men found that most valuable of commodities, the ability to beat good opposition when performing significantly below their best.Setting an example: Mike Brown is one of England’s on-pitch leadersPlayers such as Mike Brown, Ben Youngs, Owen Farrell and Chris Robshaw underlined their importance as leaders within this team during the series, whilst players previously considered to be quieter, follow-the-leader types, such as Jonathan Joseph and Courtney Lawes found their voice with their decision-making and control of the game.Making the leapA lot has been made of ‘world class’ players since Jones took over the England head coach position.The Australian had previously been critical about the lack of world class players at England’s disposal and more recently said that Jonny Wilkinson was the last player of that calibre to don the Red Rose.One of the biggest stories of Jones’ tenure has been the development of the players in his squad and more than once he has suggested that several of his charges are knocking on that world class door.Upping his game: Billy Vunipola had an epic year before injuryWell, two or three may have made that leap over the past four weeks.Farrell has led England with aplomb from his spot at inside centre, combining his ever-improving attacking gameplay with a defensive edge that has always been present. His decision-making as a defender has improved this year, as has his ability to effectively communicate and organise those around him.Likewise, Billy Vunipola has taken his game to another level over the last few months and even with Nathan Hughes‘ addition to the squad, it was noticeable just how keenly Vunipola’s absence was felt by England during their game with Australia.Leaders: Owen Farrell is one of a select few who could be considered world classBoth Farrell and Vunipola have made the leap and it would be harder, not to mention preposterous, to make a case for them not being considered among the very best in the world now, than it would to be put forward one which has them among that elite.Elsewhere, the superb series turned in by Joseph, Robshaw, Lawes and Youngs all put them in the mix for similar accolades.Defensive struggles persistLapses in defence against South Africa and Fiji cost England on the scoreboard – if not the match – and were not the clear steps forward in that area that England had been hoping for after their whitewash of Australia in the summer. In it together: The England squad congregate after their emphatic Autumn Series England went unbeaten during their Autumn Series and now have fourteen consecutive wins but there’s still room to improve, which bodes well for the future LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The trend was bucked against Argentina, when England turned in a thoroughly impressive defensive performance with 14 men, but they looked passive a week later when they took on the Wallabies.Australia caused England all sorts of problems in the first half of that match and were it not for their excellent try-line stands – a clear exception to their defensive issues – the match may have been put beyond them in the opening 30 minutes.Areas of improvement: England’s defensive positioning is still far from perfectJust as it is at Paul Gustard’s former club, Saracens, protecting your line is a remarkably well-drilled facet of this England side but where they don’t match up is with the consistency of their line speed, aggression and blitz.Against Argentina, an under-manned England side put pressure on the Pumas relentlessly, restricted the width the South Americans could play with and tied them into playing an arm wrestle in the centre of the pitch. Against Australia, they allowed the Wallabies to get wide, drifting out with the ball, rather than putting pressure on playmakers Bernard Foley and Reece Hodge.Building defensive structures and the trust within a squad that each player can deal with their own assignments is not an easy or overnight job and whilst there have been signs of development in this area, it’s still very much a work-in-progress for England.Scrummaging inconsistenciesEngland have ranged from below average to above average at the scrum over the last month – much as they have done for most of 2016 – and they are still some way off being the dominant unit they want to be.With Mako Vunipola usurping Joe Marler in the pecking order, England are not as set-piece-centric as they were in the Six Nations and combined with Dylan Hartley’s issues striking the ball, their scrum has looked underpowered. Dan Cole, despite Michael Cheika’s assertions and a yellow card against Argentina, has held up well at tighthead but has been unable to go after teams with the regularity he used to.Set-piece strength: The introduction of Joe Marler and Jamie George is an assetThe impact of Marler and Jamie George from the bench helped England into second half set-piece advantages against all four of their opponents and it has been an interesting contrast on the traditional idea that the more effective set-piece players start, then give way to more adept players in the loose in the second half.It’s difficult to overestimate the positive impact that Hartley has had as captain but without the quick strike on the ball at the scrum, he has been unable to lend his weight to the push and it is beginning to be reminiscent of Tom Youngs’ struggles at the Rugby World Cup.It’s something Neal Hatley and England’s front rowers will need to work on ahead of the Six Nations, especially with Ireland and Scotland making good progress in that area.Youth states its caseEngland’s goal is the 2019 Rugby World Cup, but as the All Blacks have shown, there is no reason why development should occur in cycles and that troughs in performance are avoidable.Debuts were given to Kyle Sinckler and Charlie Ewels during the series, two players who should, barring career-ending injuries, be around for the 2023 RWC, whilst other young players such as Henry Slade, Elliot Daly and Teimana Harrison have all added to their Test match pool of experience.Adding depth: Kyle Sinckler is one of many youngsters to make progress in recent monthsThat England are not only developing enviable depth, but depth that has the longevity to be around for much of the next decade, is something to be pleased about. New Zealand often turn to their next generation of stars when they have over 20 or 30 caps from the bench and then, unsurprisingly, they look to the manor born as Test starters.Jones, despite insisting he has only taken the reins to take England through to the 2019 RWC, might want to reconsider his position if he keeps this young team – and the ever-improving pool of young bucks – on their upwards trajectory.Ultimately, England’s 2016 autumn series must be seen as a significant success To record four wins from four games, tie the national record for consecutive wins, blood young players and do it all without the influential figures of Maro Itoje, James Haskell and Anthony Watson available, shows the growth England have undergone in the past 12 months.Sharing a cold one: England have a beer after an unbeaten yearThere is still plenty of work to be done by Jones, his coaching staff and all the players, but the future is certainly brighter for England after an impressive autumn.
George Gregan is viewed as a rugby god… Major teams: New South WalesCountry: AustraliaTest span: 1984-93Test caps: 63 (62 starts)Test points: 37 (9T) Nick Farr-Jones of Australia Rugby’s Greatest: George Gregan LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby’s Greatest: Nick Farr-JonesNick Farr-Jones was part of the Wallabies’ ‘Holy Trinity’, alongside his half-back partner Michael Lynagh and David Campese. Indeed, it was even said that the quick-thinking No 9 created 46 of Campo’s 64 Test tries.Brought up in Sydney, where he only took up the game at 13, Farr-Jones made his debut on the 1984 Grand Slam tour. Two years later he was instrumental to Australia’s series triumph in New Zealand; his performance into a gale in Wellington – with blindside snipes and shrewd link play with the forwards – was a joy to behold.Despite a fourth-placed finish at the 1987 World Cup, Farr-Jones had a fine tournament dictating his team’s tempo. He was soon chosen by coach Bob Dwyer to captain the Wallabies at 25.The following year Australia welcomed the Lions and in the first Test he gave another model demonstration of half-back play, Lions hooker Brian Moore saying in his book Beware of the Dog: “Farr-Jones’s distribution was swift, he knew when to take on the back row and especially when not to throw out rubbish. No one has ever played the perfect game, but they (Farr-Jones and Lynagh) made so few errors that it was pretty close to ideal.”Yet the Lions hit back to win the series and Farr-Jones had a notorious dust-up with opposite number Robert Jones after being provoked.

He cajoled and drove his team to defeat the All Blacks in the semi-finals, where he said, “We had to tackle till our shoulders were red raw just to keep them out”, before lifting the trophy at Twickenham with a 12-6 victory.

He took this passion to Haiti this summer on a collaborative mission trip to an orphanage with members from other Episcopal churches in the Diocese of West Texas.McCarty also lives with a passion for recording music and producing videos. His stage name is JFM3, for his given name, Joseph Franklin McCarty III. He said, “Recording music and video is an avenue where I can be real and transparent about what I’m passionate about.”With this passion, and along with friends Paul V. Hernandez and Robert Russell, McCarty created Hope Sound. Hope Sound is an organization, a branch off of Hernandez and Russell’s company MystikMuzikProductions, that is fueled by the talents of the three friends and meant to shed light on people living in poverty throughout the world. “Hope Sound is still in the process of being formed, but I believe it has a lot of potential to help a lot of people. It’s meant to give them hope,” said McCarty.Upon returning from Haiti this summer, the images of poverty resonated deeply with McCarty. He recalls driving through Port Au Prince and seeing the destructive conditions in which people live day to day. “Miles and miles of families live in tin houses smaller than most of our garages,” he said.The mission team traveled to Haiti Children’s Rescue Missions, an orphanage which houses approximately 75 children. Most of the children living at the orphanage lost their family members in the January 2010 earthquake that devastated the country. While there, the team hosted a Vacation Bible School, built a basketball hoop and a swing set, built bunk beds, and were simply present with the children. “Witnessing these children enjoying themselves with us amidst the devastation gave me hope,” said McCarty.McCarty returned home and carried the hope he had found into the next project for Hope Sound. “What I saw while in Haiti reminded me that, as Americans, we can all get too comfortable with our lifestyles and forget about our neighbors in need. But seeing the hope in the children’s eyes, I was also reminded that Jesus was resurrected and that death is dead,” he said. Longing to bring hope to the children and people he met in Haiti, McCarty wrote the song “A New Day,” and Hope Sound produced the video message.The “A New Day” video is available here.The mission of Hope Sound is to not only educate on poverty and bring our neighbors hope, but also to inspire support from those who feel called.

The structure of the building consists of a reinforced concrete construction. The glass facade consists of ceiling-high sliding elements and fixed glazing. The frames of the glass facade are made of oak. Closed facade surfaces were plastered with minerals.

The reports, commissioned by the Construction Authority and prepared by The Maxima Group and Beacon Economics, quantify the number of housing units, hotel rooms and square feet of commercial space built along the corridor since the Gold Line’s first segment opened for passenger service in 2003 and planning began for the extension from Pasadena to Montclair. The reports also highlight the private investment made from the developments and the resulting overall economic impact the TOD projects have had on the regional economy.In a report by real estate and business consulting firm, The Maxima Group, that studied the existing and potential economic impact of TOD projects along the Foothill Gold Line from Los Angeles to Montclair, entitled, “Foothill Gold Line Transit Oriented Development Update,” findings revealed that existing and underway TOD projects near the 18 Gold Line stations from Chinatown to Montclair have resulted in $6.7 billion in private investment along the corridor since 2003. More than 12,500 new housing units, 3.6 million square feet of commercial space, and 1,400 hotel rooms have been built within a half-mile radius of a Gold Line station. These investments have resulted in the creation of nearly 50,000 direct and indirect jobs during construction, 20,000 on-going jobs for Los Angeles County workers, and $50 million in annual tax revenues to the county.The Maxima Group report also measured the potential TOD that could take place along the Phase 2 corridor from Arcadia to Montclair looking forward, and found that a full buildout of all the potential TOD projects would add 17,000 more housing units, 10 million additional square feet of commercial space, and 250 more hotel rooms to this transportation corridor in the future; generating $100 million more in annual tax revenues to Los Angeles County and creating tens of thousands of temporary jobs during construction and tens of thousands of more jobs from on-going operation of the developments.“Roughly speaking, you can think of all three segments of the Gold Line from Los Angeles to Montclair as costing $3 billion to complete,” stated Habib F. Balian, CEO of the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority. “And what these studies found is that nearly $7 billion of private investment has already come online along this corridor, with about $9 billion more private investment potential still available for future growth.”In a separate report conducted by economic research firm Beacon Economics that focused on the growth that has taken place near the six Pasadena stations, entitled, “Economic and Fiscal Impacts of Transit Oriented Development at Gold Line Foothill Extension Pasadena Stations,” findings revealed that projects built or underway within a half mile of the six Pasadena Gold Line stations alone amount to $3.3 billion in economic output, roughly 20,700 jobs, $1.1 billion in labor income, and $66.3 million in tax revenues. Meanwhile, the businesses operating at these TOD properties support nearly 11,200 jobs and generate $1.2 billion in economic output and $707 million in labor income.“It is important to note that the growth these studies reveal occurred during the worst economic downturn our county and our nation has seen since the Great Depression,” added Balian. “This is a corridor in the county that is ripe for growth, and the investment the county is making to build the transit infrastructure is paying off with development that allows us as a county to grow along a major transit line that connects people to jobs, universities, the Los Angeles County Fairplex and much more.”The two TOD reports, along with a video of the TOD panel discussion from the October 14, 2016 Foothill Gold Line State of the Project featuring the two study authors, can be viewed online at http://www.foothillgoldline.org/news/media-resources/.The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority is an independent transportation planning and construction agency created in 1998 by the California State Legislature to plan, design and build the Metro Gold Line light rail system from Union Station to Montclair, along the Foothills of the San Gabriel Valley. The agency completed the first segment from Union Station to Pasadena in 2003 and the Pasadena to Azusa segment in 2015; both on time and under budget. The agency began work on the Foothill Gold Line from Glendora to Montclair in 2006. The project was environmentally cleared in 2013 and began advanced conceptual engineering in 2014; it will be ready to break ground as early as next year on the 12.3-mile, six-station extension. The Construction Authority is seeking the $1.2 billion needed to build the extension; the majority of which may come from the Los Angeles County sales tax measure – Measure M – on the November 8, 2016 ballot.
