3 UK STOCKS I’M BUYING NOW

today i’m talking about the free uk stocks i’m buying right now i bought these free uk stocks this week i thought it was a good time to add into my uk portfolio i’ve not talked about some uk stocks for a little bit just because there’s so many bargains on the us stock market at the moment especially in the u.s small market cap space i’m trying to pay a lot of them and i thought this week you know what i need to put some funds into my uk stock market portfolio and these are the three uk socks i bought this week now sorry there was no video yesterday i basically ended up spending 10 hours making a exclusive video on patreon which was how to value growth stocks so if you are on the patreon do go check that video out it’s about 15 minutes long and it goes through quite a few things if you do want to join the patreon there’s a link in the description and on there you can view exclusive content like that video there’s two exclusive videos a week as well as a discard with 600 members on that are always talking about stocks i post when i’m buying and selling stocks as well on there and it’s pretty good for five pound and i’m trying not to be biased about it but for all that stuff that you get in there with exclusive videos the discord on there buy and sell alerts it’s a great community and for five pound one pound a week nearly i think it’s a pretty good value if you do want to invest in some links to some brokers in description like free trade like steak you join through there you get a free share as well with the free trade one it’s just increased to the minimum stock you can get is 10 pounds to 200 pound which is pretty good and on steak they’re doing a special offer this month if you join through the stake link which is the first link you’ll also get two free shares through the month of august as well but let’s take a look at the three uk stocks i’m buying at the moment which number one is hollywood bowl so i have started buying some more shares in hollywood it’s a company that i’ve not bought for about a year i’ve not really bought this one since 2020 and i took a massive uh averaging up this week on hollywood bowl so i’m up on this company i think i was up something like 60 70 percent and i have averaged up quite a big amount on hollywood ball to make it quite a big position and it’s still in my portfolio i will do a portfolio update in a few weeks time because i said i will do them every quarter and it’s kind of getting towards there now so i will do a bit of a put for the update sometime soon on the channel um but my holly ball position i averaged up quite a bit on this one and now hollywood ball is my portfolio is still s4 capital then boohoo and greg’s and hollywood ball pretty much tied in third place at the moment i i’m kind of feeling that i i do really love this company and i’ve always said that it could be a number one position for me and i feel like the numbers they’re going to put in next year are going to be fantastic and it has a lot of potential and holly ball could easily for me come ahead of greg’s and even take over boohoo so there could be even more averaging up that i do on this company because i believe the upside uh with the expansion plans will reflect in the share price because of profit and revenue growth in the next few years and because of that reason i think i’m thinking about making even bigger and averaging up even more and it’s one of those where you’ve got a kind of not get stuck in your pride of having a stock that’s up you know 40 50 60 and some people i know have it even even higher than me have even higher returns on this one from last year but there’s a bit of it where you kind of got to not get too carried away with how much you’re up and thinking about how much potential has this to go up even more in the next two to five years and when i look at that i think about buying more hollywood bowl so if you don’t know what holly ball is they have about 70 centers at the moment and this is what the locations look like they have a big glowing pink hm and inside here they’ve got like a bar area they have an arcade area and then obviously the bowling area as well and they make a lot of good revenue from all these different areas that they do have they were also going into put starters now as well and expanding into like the mini golf area as well so this could be a fourth income stream that hollywood holly ball do have and the thing with these hollywood ball locations is they’re very good at selecting them they always tie them in into areas which you would kind of go out and then you might go to holly ball you go bowling you might get a drink at the bar and then you might go to the arcade after and then because of the areas that they’re in you might even go to the cinema there’s normally a cinema nearby and also there’s probably a couple of restaurants that you might go to afterwards like hernando’s or frank and benny’s but they seem to be shutting down like crazy at the moment tgi fridays so the locations of this really tie in very well and as well what i do like is the amount of diverse income stream that they do have in their center so even if you don’t go bowling you might be walking past you might go oh do you want to go in and play a game of pool or go on the arcade machine so i think because of the diverse revenue they have now they’re not just relying on the bowling now if you do have a look at the stock price it did have a pretty good run up from 2018 especially going into 2020 i think people are starting to realize and how good this company is and also the plans they have for expanding the centers uh but then unfortunately obviously when we got round to january time uh the rumors of a big pandemic coming from china started coming out and yeah the stock fell off the cliff since then it basically traded quite flat and then it wasn’t until we kind of got the vaccine news that we saw the stock kind of kicked on but even from a stock point of view you know it’s still uh we used to be like a three pound stock and we still around two pound thirty at the moment so i think that this company should go higher than that because it is going to put more revenue and profit in than when it was pre-cv and um for sure i think this is easy a three pound 50 stock right now and then you consider where it’ll be in two to five years i can see this eventually going to be a five pound stock in the next two to five years now the next kind of update judging on previous years will be around october time for uh holly ball and we’ll get some really good information on there but the funny thing about holly ball is that this is one of the industries that’s been hit the most because of the cv uh so far at the moment basically on all these training updates um hollywood ball has pretty much only been open like a warm month which was like around um like august time and and that was the only time they were actually allowed to be open in 2020 and you know nightclubs have pretty much been shot and they’ve only been able to open up in like pretty much was it match time 2021 very much like ledger centers like ice skating rings uh bowling alleys these these will really hit hard and the government pretty much hasn’t allowed these to open since the whole cv situation happened and that’s the thing is like there’s not really that much financial numbers that have come out of hollywood ball because they’ve not been allowed to be open and basically that when we get a trading update in october that’ll be the first time that we’ll have some consecutive months of hollywood hodder bowl being open the only numbers we have got from hardball have been actually really good so the one month they were kind of allowed to be open which was a full month through october there was a bit of um august and then i think november we went back into lockdown but the one month they were open in 2020 and you can see here they were profitable trading after the first lockdown with solid performance in october so the one month they were allowed to open pretty much in 2020 was fantastic they went straight to profit and also revenue growth was pretty strong in october as well so the thing is well what you got to remember with october is that there was i think the rule of 16 at the time basically there were some centers that were basically having gaps between lanes so that even a lot of the centers weren’t fully open some of the arcades were closed and everything so to have profitable trading with a lot of restrictions in place was impressive so if you put into context now okay that was one month in october what happens if we have consecutive months lockdowns are easing you don’t have to have the the gaps between the lanes there’s a lot of room for even better couple of months as well and you’ll see here the the plan for the expansion in the next two to five years you’ll see they’ve got two new centers here they’ve got three new hollow ball uh in no go negotiations and also eight put starters so this is the new uh thing they’re expanding on and also by 2024 they’re going to over their overall target to double to 14 to 80 new centers by 2024 so that’s a massive increase on where they are right now and that’s why i kind of think over the next kind of two to five years if they’re opening 14 to 80 new centers what we’ll see is the share price go to five pound in my opinion also on the update that we had before going into the cv situation the company was doing very well so uh the five first months of the financial year uh were very strong with revenue up twelve point five percent uh and like for like revenue up nine point four percent so this is a company growing a very healthy double-digit rate and that’s what i like about it and considering that this company will trade somewhere around like a 19p ratio at the moment and it’s a double-digit growth company that’s a pretty good evaluation from my point of view now you see on the past performance the company has grown revenue very well and and this is what starting to happen i think that was what was starting to get reflected in the share price is the amount of new centers that were opening and that was reflected in uh good revenue growth and you can see here the amount of profit growth that was starting to happen on the company as well financially the company’s very strong and it’s got 31 debt to work too which is is pretty good if you look at assets liabilities the assets liabilities are pretty good as well we look at the balance sheet there’s 28 million in debt and they’ve also got 37 million in cash so for me that’s a very strong cash to debt as well um which is good they did used to pay a little bit of a dividend um the dividend at the moment obviously has been stopped we’ll see if that comes back and i’m not sure too sure how i feel about what have you done coming back and i don’t know if i’d prefer them to focus on expansion paying a bit of debt down before they do come to a bit of a dividend um but yeah it used to pay a bit of a dividend yield as well uh there used to also be a bit of a special dividend i believe so that’s why maybe it looks a bit high uh like a big jump here and because we’re doing so well so um yeah we’ll see we’ll see what happens with that one but just what i’d make aware they did used to be a bit of a dividend player uh not so long ago and just going into the point of view on the ownership of the company you can see there’s been a lot of heavy buying in march time as well and so you could see that i think a few people kind of thought uh inside the company thought you know what and it looks like lockdown’s gonna stop our company’s very good value we’re gonna buy and um yeah this is this is a very good sign in the company as well and also i want to make a point that steve burns is i’m very happy as him as a ceo as well i think he’s done a very good job expanding the company as well so number one is holly ball and yeah and bots of mine this one and like i said before pre i could probably see me buying a few more shares in this one because i am liking the company at its current valuations number two is hotel chocolate and i’ve been lazy and writing the ticket symbol on this one again i think if i was put hotel chocolate i’d end up covering it with my shoulder to be fair but yeah hotel chocolate is number two i bought some more shares in this company as well so i’m sure you’ve probably seen these guys on the high street and they’ve got quite a few stores around so i’ve been buying this company now for probably about four months at the moment just building a nice little position while we’re having this little dip here um same for this company this company was nearly a five pound company so it’s on about 23 dip at the moment i think that when we get some more financial results i think this could potentially go to a five pound company as well in the next two to five years now the thing i like about this covenant is that during the whole lockdown situation all their stars are being shut the company actually posted in really good numbers and i i kind of look to this company think okay if it’s a company that’s expanding very good internationally and online growth short online growth might come down a little bit because the stars are open in the next few months but the online growth and the international growth is very good now if you add the stars reopening then this is going to be a company that grows revenue at a really good rate and it’s starting to show that right now so the big thing about this is that it’s basically being a uk company but now it’s expanding um online and also in the us and into japan and obviously then you think okay what happens if it goes past them two countries then it’s going to be a very good growth story internationally so just for example here if we look here and they kind of put um financial year 21 uh revenue of 165 million and you got remember there’s a lot of stars closed in here so you add the stars club in here as well it’s going to be very impressive and you look here and it’s an increase of 21 compared to financial year 20 and if you look here an increase of 24 compared to financial year 19. being the last financial year before can’t see they can’t say that word uh impact so you can see here the the numbers are really strong and like i say you add in as well the the a lot of these stars coming back open as well the high street boom i think they’re going to put some really fantastic numbers in and like i said it’s not being reflected in the share price at the moment you can see here this is the uk database growing 66 which has also helped to subscriptions and you can see here in the us product sales have increased by 62 percent and also you can see here in japan uh the joint venture partnership sales grew 277 so like i said i’m looking at his company now thinking where it was two years ago and compared to two years ago um obviously it has its stars still but it’s online growth it’s u.s growth which japan growth over the next kind of five years i can see this coming a very strong international company um as well which it was why i’m kind of invested in this company like i said when i go back to where it was i think in 2019 people are kind of realizing that and it had a very good 2019 but i think it has the potential to go past where it was previously now if you look at the company point of view you can see here this is where it was growing profit and revenue steadily before 2019 and then it’s going to sharply and still increase that profit profit and revenue as well which i really like about the company it’s a very strong previously performed very strong and it’ll grow in my opinion it’ll grow even faster now as well uh financially you can see assets liability is lovely uh zero debt on the balance sheet which is really good very very strong balance sheet and you can see here no debt sitting on 47 million cash which is pretty good and they did pay a little bit of a dividend and that dividend once again has been stopped it’d be interesting to see if they do come back to pay the dividend uh because obviously and they’ll probably put a lot of investment in the company at the moment and so yeah we’ll see what happens with that one uh management management are very good uh if we go on to the ownership of the company you can see here the ceo and co-founder um both angus taywell has a big stake in it and you can see the other co-founder here peter harris has a big stake in the company between them they own over half the company as well which is really good um founder lead got skin in the game that’s that’s a big thing for me um so that’s it’s good to see everything there so yeah overall i think when you look at hotel chocolate i think the financial results to put in in the cv situation were amazing yeah adding all the stars i went up and the international story could carry on growing i think that that’s a very good play to have and i’ve just been averaging into that one over the last kind of three to four months so yeah been buying up a few shares in hotel chocolate and number three is kate box so i’ve only ever bought this company once and i kind of bought the company and thought right i’m gonna see if it has a bit of a pullback and then i can build my position after sitting on this one for a couple of months it hasn’t had much of a pullback so i’m starting to build my position now uh pretty much flat on it i i’m pretty much flat on this company so i’m building up my position so i’m going to try to do this over like the next kind of six to 12 months and i’m building that uh position into a company called kate box so kate box here and you can see the stock chat it’s had a very good 2020 the final financial result results were really good and once again you talked about a company that had most of its stores pretty much totally shut down and a lot of this was online and curbside pickups and now you add in the stores reopening in my opinion it should be pretty good um it does trade at a little bit behind premium there was a one-time charge in there so it will be a little bit lower um when that one time charge does go out of it does pay a little bit of dividend and it is a 127 million market cap this is the thing with a lot of these uk stocks you do have to be careful that they are quite small market caps meaning they will move around a fair bit so you just have to be careful it also does mean as well a lot of these companies are there’s not much liquidity there so you have to be very careful like trading two and two can be a horrible platform to buy these stocks on personally a lot of these companies i buy on de giro at the moment uh just because it’s easy to get the trades in uh but just i’m just gonna actually it’s probably a point mister saying that i think i think i’ve already covered it a lot of times but there’s always someone in the comments like that says it and i’m like i’ve mentioned it about 100 times but i’ll mention it 101 times so there we go now you might recognize the stars they do have you know very stand-up stars in this kind of pinky purple i don’t know is that pink or purple would you say i’ll go with purple you might see a lot of these stars they also have a they’re starting to open like kiosks as well now which are coming quite popular but they’re expanding very quickly now just going on to the financial results you’ll see this is uh compared to the prior year and like i said this is with a lot of their stars shut down for most of the year and you’ll see that the revenue growth was 16 growth gross profit 23 uh pre-tax profit 10 you’ll see the earnings per share here you can see the one-time charge here uh gdpr breach that cost them uh 500k hopefully it looks like they’ve pretty much sorted all that out and they’ll probably learn from that and online growth 85 now i don’t think that will be as strong going forward as what it has done uh but it’s good to see how much online growth they did have now this is a big thing for me is that going to expand here 24 new franchise stores here and and they’ve got 157 franchise stores as of the 31st of march compared to 133 now over the next few years that’s probably going to expand to nearly 300 which is why i’m kind of investing into it they’re going to double the amount of stars they do have on here which is kind of why i’m getting in um successful ongoing trial of five kiosks with a national supermarket chain and four new shopping centers kiosk taking total number of kiosks to 21 so i think this is something else i can expand on i’ve seen one of these actually in the trafford center and it was actually really busy for people queuing up for them and i think those little kiosks will actually be very good for them and they can make a lot of money off them and you can see here this is the outlook which um they’re gonna target 18 to 24 new franchise stars openings in financial year 2022. like i said i think that they could be targeting um massive amounts of stars opening that’s why i think in the next kind of five years we could be talking about nearly 300 franchise stores uh going forward uh which will be very good and that will be uh shown in the profit and revenue and i think the share price will move up when they start noticing that now you can see here historically this company’s grown profit and revenue a very good rate investing very heavily back into the company as well so the profit could be a little bit higher but they’re choosing to keep expanding it and it shows on that revenue front uh which is really good if you look at the balance sheet the balance sheets getting stronger and stronger and we are sitting on 13 debt debt to equity at the moment very healthy i’m not very worried about that one uh you see assets to liabilities outweigh them in the short term and long term uh you look at the debt 1.5 million sitting on 5.5 million on the balance sheet which is good used to pay a bit of a dividend yield at uh 2.35 so this could also pay a bit of a dividend stock as well which is good and you’ll notice that i am playing a lot of these uk stocks at the moment that offer growth and a dividend i think that’s a lovely combination and if we look at the company as well it’s a co-co-founder-led company uh which obviously i like it as well and if you look at the insider holding as well you can see here ceo co-founder 31 stake in the company and you can see here the other co-founder as well owns 10 10 stake in the company as well which i like so yeah you know the uh insiders they see it co-founder led with owning just over 40 percent of the company as well uh which is a good thing that i’d like to see so number three was kate box and you can see here that i um particularly with these three companies i’m looking at companies that perform very well in the cv situation and then you’re gonna have um the boom of the opening and people going out again and their stores as well and starting to pick up more sales so yeah over the long term two to five years i really like these companies and um i think where they’re expanding to uh with the amount of stars are all opening up our international expansion will be shown in the revenue and profit and then if the revenue profit grows on these five companies i think that will be reflected in the share price further down the line so hope these free uk stocks i’m buying right now was a useful video for you guys if it was useful hit the like button if you’re new subscribe and i’ll see you next video you
