Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Cliff D’Arcy | Wednesday, 11th November, 2020 | More on: GSK LLOY center_img November has been a very rewarding month for UK shareholders, as share prices soar on two pieces of good news. First, Joe Biden is to be the 46th President of the United States after winning last Tuesday’s election. Second, pharma giant Pfizer and its German biotech partner BioNTech will begin distributing a Covid-19 vaccine before 2020 is out. Thus, the FTSE 100 has risen like a rocket, up 775 points (14%) since Halloween. Yet the UK’s main market index is down almost a sixth (15.6%) in 2020, so I still see value lurking in the Footsie today. Here are two cheap shares I’d buy right now.Cheap shares: going long on LloydsIt’s been a bumper November for long-suffering shareholders in Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY). Lloyds shares have surged by a fifth (20%) to hit 33.66p as I write. At its 2020 low on 22 September, the Lloyds share price had slumped to just 23.59p. Buyers at that price would be sitting on a handsome gain of 42.7% in seven weeks. That’s a remarkable return for so-called ‘boring’ cheap shares that many investors avoided as a perennial ‘value trap’.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…Despite this month’s healthy gain, I expect much more to come from Lloyds. Indeed, I still see its stock selling too cheaply right now. Lloyds is the UK’s largest retail bank, with 30 million customers, yet its market value is a paltry £20.2bn. What’s more, Lloyds is in much better shape than it was six months ago. In fact, it made a £1bn pre-tax profit in the third quarter. Furthermore, it has a fortress balance sheet and easily enough excess capital to see it through the Covid-19 crisis. When Lloyds’ suspended dividend returns in 2021, I would expect its stock to soar. That’s why I’d keep buying these cheap shares today.Banking big dividends from GSKThe second of my cheap shares is one I have owned for much of the past 30 years: GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). The UK’s second-largest pharmaceutical company is a world leader in vaccines, oncology (cancer), respiratory and HIV/AIDS treatments. At the current share price of around 1,467p, GSK has a market value of £71bn, so it’s a FTSE 100 heavyweight. What’s more, its colossal yearly revenues and cash flow translate into huge quarterly cash dividends for its shareholders. As I wrote recently, GSK’s cash payout is the fifth-largest by size in the FTSE 100. At 80p a share, its quarterly dividends add up to almost £4bn a year — every year, for the past five years.At today’s price, the dividend yield is a tidy 5.45% a year, far above the 3.2% on offer from the wider FTSE 100. What’s more, GSK’s share price has been crushed by Covid-19, down a hefty 21% from its 2020 peak of 1,857p on 24 January. On a price-to-earnings ratio of 11.7 and an earnings yield  of 8.6%, I view the stock as deep in the FTSE 100’s bargain bin. Hence, I’d happily buy more GSK stock at these depressed prices. For the record, I’m already doing so by reinvesting my regular dividends into yet more cheap shares! 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.

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Making a passive income has been made more difficult over recent months. An uncertain global economic outlook and low interest rates mean there are potentially fewer options available to income-seeking investors. After all, some companies have cut their dividends. Meanwhile other assets such as bonds and cash now have extremely low returns.Despite this, it’s possible to obtain a generous level of income from an investment in dividend shares. As such, now could be the right time to invest £20k, or any other amount, to obtain a growing income that’s likely to be significantly higher than that available elsewhere.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…A generous passive incomeYes, the stock market has experienced a rally over recent months. But a number of dividend shares continue to offer high yields. As such, it’s possible to build a diverse portfolio of stocks that offers a high combined passive income for 2021.On a relative basis, the income produced by shares this year is likely to be much higher than that available elsewhere. For example, other mainstream assets such as property have risen in price over the last decade. This may mean that yields across the sector have been squeezed at the same time as some stocks trade at low prices with high dividend yields.Similarly, low interest rates mean that the income return on bonds and cash may be less than inflation in 2021 and in the coming years. This could further increase the appeal of dividend shares as a means to obtain a worthwhile passive income.Dividend growth potentialAs well as a generous income return in 2021, an investment in dividend shares could provide a growing passive income over the coming years. Certainly, a number of income stocks will fail to raise their dividends this year because of disruption caused by coronavirus and a weaker global economic performance.They may decide to hold cash in case there are further economic challenges or disruption caused by coronavirus ahead. However, history shows that this situation is unlikely to persist in the long run. and that an economic recovery is likely to take place.This could allow dividend shares to raise their payouts at a fast pace. And those hikes may be above inflation in many instances. This could further raise the profile of dividend stocks so they become popular among a broader range of investors.For example, a rapidly-rising dividend may suggest to growth investors that a company’s management team is optimistic about its prospects. This could increase demand for that company’s shares, and lead its stock price higher.Therefore, dividend shares could offer capital growth alongside a worthwhile passive income today. This means they could be worth buying instead of other assets. And they could provide an income return on a £20k investment, or any other amount, over the coming years.

UV house is a project for a young couple, conversion of an old industrial building into a modern urban villa. The client asked to create a new floor for bedrooms inside the shape of the actual building. Our aim was to preserve the power of the void that space suggested to us.Save this picture!DiagramThe concept was simple: a floating slab set into the existing walls that keeps the huge void under it. We made it in concrete. Positioned in the middle of the entire space the slab generates two empty spaces to its extremes, a patio garden at the front entrance and a double height on the other side.Save this picture!© Stefania MatteoThe entrance garden provides better illumination of the interior spaces as well as create a smart outdoor space to live.

Rather than being a retirement project, T-house is an indication of the owners’ determination to engage with life and ways of doing things in the countryside. It is designed as a family home to be used all year round and further incorporates generous work and storage areas in the form of a spacious working kitchen and an extensive cellar to accommodate the varied activities the couple absorbs themselves in (curing olives, canning, jam-making, etc.).Save this picture!© Yercekim Architectural PhotographyThe project’s significance rests with its proposal to introduce an “unobtrusive novelty” in a bucolic landscape dotted with what could best be described as generic, uninspired summer homes. It sits within the tight grid of the olive grove and remains barely discernible through the think foliage of trees if it weren’t for its steeply pitched roof—a curious feature, one that leaves a gentle mark on the landscape and invites one to explore further.Save this picture!© Yercekim Architectural PhotographyThe T-House appears at home in nature. The grey of the concrete surfaces and the somber tones of timber components reflect the Mediterranean flora and the geological formations that define the surrounding landscape. The overall form is broken into small volumes so as not to present an imposing mass. Glazed surfaces define permeable openings which extend the interior spaces to the exterior with a delicate wrap-around deck serving as outdoor rooms bordered by olive trees.Save this picture!© Yercekim Architectural PhotographySave this picture!Perspective PlanSave this picture!© Yercekim Architectural PhotographyThis effortless connection between the interior and exterior spaces is very much in keeping with the lifestyle of the owners who spend a considerable part of their day in the open air. It is also a conscious (albeit modern and more transparent) reworking of the spatial theme of hayat, which is integral to Turkish vernacular traditions and is reflected here in the plan of the house as a semi-open core for daily chores and routines.Save this picture!© Yercekim Architectural PhotographyThe design of the T-House aims to put no strain on the site. The house is respectful of its surroundings and attuned to the seasonal cycles and daily rise and fall of the sun. The mass of the building is lifted off the ground in order to allow the air to circulate freely underneath, thereby passively cooling the living areas. Glazed openings pierce through the central core to allow cardinal winds to cross-ventilate the interior spaces.Save this picture!Section AxonometricThe plan offers occupants a choice of two bedrooms, whose exact positioning within the rear concrete shell is decided according to the intensity of the sun during the winter and summer months. The living room rises to a mezzanine level to capture the afternoon sun which sets rather prematurely behind the neighboring hills. The T-House thus enters into a dialogue with the rhythms and elements of the surrounding natural world. Theirs is a dialogue in which no party overpowers the other.Save this picture!© Yercekim Architectural PhotographyThe design and construction process mobilizes local crafts and expertise. The T-House is not manufactured elsewhere and shipped off to its site for assembly. A local carpenter crafted all the woodwork, including the wrap-around deck and the delicate timber formwork which leaves the imprint of the wood grain on the exposed reinforced concrete walls. Similarly, a local contractor was in charge of the construction of the reinforced concrete structure.Save this picture!Detail SectionThe project shows the possibility of harnessing local resources and know-how to speak a universal language (both formally and conceptually). It proposes a context-sensitive, yet architecturally daring design in a locale away from the main centers of architectural activity and, particularly, in a building culture dominated by conventional practices. Just as the retired owners pledge their commitment to the daily life of their rural community, so does the T-House strive to be an enduring contribution to the residential culture of a distinct landscape.TEXT: by Emre Gonlugur Area:  200 m² Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img Architects: Onur Teke Area Area of this architecture project 2013 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/776900/t-house-onur-teke Clipboard ArchDaily 2013 “COPY” T-House / Onur TekeSave this projectSaveT-House / Onur Teke Turkey Year:  CopyAbout this officeOnur TekeOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMordoğanTurkeyPublished on November 11, 2015Cite: “T-House / Onur Teke” 10 Nov 2015.

Building for people’s power

first_imgPatrice ArmsteadWW photo: Joseph PietteA step forward toward building people’s power was taken in Philadelphia when activists met on Sept. 26 in the western part of the city. The People’s Power Assembly had been preceded by a series of speakouts during the summer where community residents addressed the issues that concerned them.The speakouts were sparked by a march on May Day that went through what the organizers called the “repression center.” Activists marched by the construction site of a so-called “Youth Study Center,” better described as a youth detention center; a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement office; and a new police headquarters, all within a few blocks of each other in West Philadelphia.The May Day march was so successful in engaging people in the area that organizers followed with speakouts on different key issues in the community. Issues like unemployment, lack of health care and education, the destruction of small, family-owned businesses that provided stability in the community, and cuts in General Assistance were some of the main topics repeated by many people during the speakouts.Interesting was the fact that many residents wanted to do something about those issues, but felt that nobody else in the neighborhood was interested in joining the effort. Sadly, this is a symptom quite pervasive not only here but across the country. It is the ruling class, through its media and other institutions, that has instilled the false idea that people have no power, that their only power is exercised through their votes every four years.So the next step was to organize a meeting, a People’s Power Assembly, where all those who wanted to fight back could meet each other.That was the first goal of the West Philly PPA — to unite for struggle. That was what brought out residents from this predominantly African-American community. The assembly was chaired by Patrice Armstead, the main PPA organizer and resident from the West Philly neighborhood. Erin Morales, a young poet and activist, opened the meeting by reading one of her moving poems dedicated to Mumia Abu-Jamal and the injustice of mass incarceration and solitary confinement. Other speakers were Anthony Monteiro, professor of African-American studies at Temple University and longtime Philadelphia activist, who spoke about unemployment and prisons. Betsey Piette, from the International Action Center, spoke about education.Several issues were raised by the audience, who in general spoke of the necessity of fighting back and not remaining passive in the face of possible gentrification, lack of fresh produce in the community, and foreclosures, among other attacks against the poor. A followup meeting will be scheduled soon to take up a course of further action.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Postal workers, supporters protest cuts

first_imgMembers of the New York Metro and Mid-Hudson areas of the American Postal Workers Union, the National Postal Mail Handlers Union and community organizations, including Community Labor United for Postal Jobs and Services, participated in a day of action here on Sept. 9, holding a militant picket line and rally in front of the Westchester Hilton Hotel. They were protesting the presence of a high-ranking postal officer from Washington, D.C.The focus of the picket line was four demands: save our mail service; stop the closings of postal and mail processing centers; boycott Staples; and no privatization of the postal service. Drivers riding by the picket line showed their support by honking horns or giving a clenched fist.Also protesting in front of the hotel were members of District Council 9 of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades. They were demanding that contractor AM Painting pay at area wage and benefit standards, as established by the council. An inflatable rat at the rally signified that AM Painting hires scabs and pays scab wages. Marching together in solidarity, this demonstration of postal workers and supporters was a building block for a national action to be held in November in Washington, D.C.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

China Grove Parade has patriotic spirit

first_img Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Skip Latest Stories China Grove Parade has patriotic spirit Book Nook to reopen Like the Stewarts and friends, many people staked a claim to a spot and held on to it after the parade when picnic cloths came out like ants from a bed.“The China Grove Parade is a happening,” said Marlise Andrews from Montgomery. “And we just happened to hear about it. This is our first year, and we’ll probably make it a family tradition. I can’t really say what it is that’s so much fun. The parade was … different and what I liked was so many flags. It was all about country. An older man marched with a flag and a little boy marched with a flag and the people on horses had flags and flags waved from cars and motorcycles and lawnmowers. It was a real Fourth of July Parade.”Stewart said the free watermelon was a real treat and so was the entertainment.“They keep adding things and there was entertainment everywhere you went,” she said. China Grove is where I want to be on the Fourth of July. It’s like it’s supposed to be. You see old friends and meet new ones.

Flags are everywhere so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one. Take off your hats as we honor our country.”The announcer didn’t ask, but all red-blooded Americans at the China Grove Fourth of July Parade also placed theirs hands over their hearts as they recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America. By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content Diane LaFountaine, a parade organizer, said the parade was the biggest in the 10-year history of the parade that began as a neighborhood parade with children riding their decorated bikes down the road.“Last year we had about 150 entries, and I’d guess that we’ve got 200 or more this year,” she said. “There has been a lot of interest and enthusiasm surrounding the parade, and I can’t believe the number of people that are here. They have come from everywhere, and we just appreciate the fact that people enjoy coming to China Grove and that so many make it their Fourth of July destination every year.”At the watermelon stand in front of Dean’s Store, there was a tangle of tractors, wagons, horses, motorcycles, lawn mowers, bicycles, unicycles, tricycles, boats, cars and trucks. Some trying to go forward, some backward, some wanting to turn in, others wanting to turn around and some had stopped and planned to stay that way.Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas surveyed the mass of humanity and machines and laughed.“People are here to have a good time and they appreciate the opportunity to spend the Fourth of July with friends and family,” he said. “Even with all the traffic we’ve never had a bit of trouble. People come to enjoy each other and celebrate this great country of ours and nobody wants to do anything to spoil it. That’s a tribute to all who come.” By Jaine Treadwell Published 7:11 pm Monday, July 6, 2009 Print Article “That was such a nice touch to the parade because, after all, that’s what the Fourth of July is all about – celebrating our independence and honoring those who serve,” said Margaret Stewart. “It was a stirring moment.”Stewart and her husband, Henry, have been attending the China Grove Fourth of July Parade for about six years so they know all the ropes. They left Troy about 8:30 a.m. Saturday to beat the crowd and claim a shady spot in downtown China Grove.“The barbecue always goes fast, and there’s a long line so we went over around nine o’clock and got ours and put it in the warmer,” Stewart said, laughing. “We had a table set up with snacks to tide us over until after the parade.” Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
