Image source: Getty Images. Looking for big dividends at low cost? I recently explained why I think Cineworld, which carries sub-10 P/E ratios and 7%-plus dividend yields, is a brilliant buy today. But in truth, the UK share market is packed with income heroes that appear to me grossly undervalued by investors right now.Persimmon (LSE: PSN) is another that looks far too cheap, certainly in my opinion. The fear of plunging demand for new homes should the UK embark on a disorderly Brexit has pressured the share price of late. And recent scandals concerning the quality of its properties is having an impact upon build rates.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…Scaling downCompletion numbers at Persimmon dropped by almost 600 year-on-year in 2019, to 15,855, as it prioritised quality over quantity. And as a consequence, revenues dropped 2.4% from 2018 levels.The FTSE 100 firm will release details on its independent review when full-year results are unpacked on February 27. This will address recent efforts to improve the quality of its product and will influence production targets for the near term.City analysts don’t seem to expect build rates to soar any time soon though. It’s why they expect annual earnings to flatline in 2020. Expectations of weak home price growth feed into these insipid forecasts too.Poor forecastsThe boffins at Nationwide certainly don’t expect property prices to recover significantly in 2020. In its its latest house price report last month, the building society predicted that house prices would be “broadly flat over the next 12 months.”It continued that it expected only modest growth in the domestic economy this year, and that “economic developments will remain the key driver of housing market trends and house prices.” It specifically cited fears over the global economy and the direction of UK trade negotiations as items that will impact conditions in 2020.Market strengthThat said, house price growth has been quite terrific of late. That Nationwide report showed that property values had risen at their fastest pace in 14 months in January. And latest data from Halifax was even more impressive. This showed home values rising 4.1% on an annual basis last month.And the bank expects “moderate” house price growth over the course of the year. It says that “demand is likely to continue to exceed the supply of properties for sale across the UK, with the subdued pace of new building also adding to upwards price pressure.” It says that “mortgage affordability should stay largely favourable” as well.Too good to missBetter clarity concerning Brexit has helped prices jump following last year’s general election. But there are doubts over whether this ‘Boris Bounce’ can continue as tough trade negotiations begin.Yet I believe that the outlook for house prices in the near term and beyond remains strong, thanks to the supply and demand disparity that Halifax speaks of. It’s a theme that City analysts expect to keep driving Persimmon’s profits modestly higher. A 2% bottom-line rise is forecast for 2021. This also means that big dividends are still expected from the builder.Yields thus clock in just shy of 8% for both 2020 and 2021. Combine this with a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of 11.1 times and I reckon Persimmon is too cheap to miss at current prices. Given the scale of the housing crisis, it’s a share that could deliver stunning shareholder returns for many years, I feel.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Should I start investing in FTSE 100 stocks now?

Without much ado, the answer’s Yes. Here’s why.No stock market crash lasts forever. It can last for up to a few years, yes. But forever? No. A look at stock market cycles shows clearly that from the mid-1980s to now, the longest FTSE 100 downslide has lasted less than three years. That was during the dot com bust at the turn of the century. Even the more recent financial meltdown in 2008 lasted for less than two years before the recovery began. 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…Buy during the FTSE 100 declineBased on past trends, I think it’s realistic to expect that we could see some downtrend in the FTSE 100 in the coming months. The Covid-19 crisis is less than two-months old, and based on news and analysis, it appears that it will be a few months before we have a handle on the outbreak.Even with all the policy measures in place, I suspect financial markets will remain highly susceptible to jerky movements during such time. We are one scary report – on coronavirus trends, poor financial results for key FTSE 100 companies, or a grim macroeconomic update – away from the index winding up in the red. Similarly, it’s a positive news story away from inching up. The balance right now, however, is tilted towards negative news.If you are contemplating starting to invest in stock markets, this can sound scary, but it needn’t be. In fact, I think it’s a buying opportunity. Quality stocks are available at low share prices. As a long-term investor, your holding period will most likely outlast the FTSE 100 downtrend. Moreover, the gains from investing during a dip can be quite big.Practicing discretionA buying opportunity isn’t an indiscriminate buying opportunity, however. There are a number of FTSE 100 stocks I’d stay away from. For instance, the ones in the eye of the storm, like leisure travel company Carnival Corporation and airline carrier Easyjet, look risky. Share prices of both have risen considerably from their lowest points. But if the present situation persists for much longer, which I think it will, their fundamentals could be affected. That, in turn would impact their share prices going forward. I’d wait for signs of a pick-up in business activity before considering buying them. Buying the safeBut I would consider buying other FTSE 100 shares. I like defensives quite a bit right now. There are three reasons for this. One, their business is likely to be impacted least by the crisis and the recession that will follow. Two, as a result, their share prices tend to be less volatile than others’. At this time, investing can be nerve wracking. If I want peace of mind as well, these are good bets. And three, more than one large, financially healthy, FTSE 100 defensive has proven to be a good long-term investment for capital growth. They’ve also provided a steady income stream even during recessions in the past. Even in the hardest of times, they can be a way to inch forward, even if it isn’t the time to race ahead.

One FTSE “Snowball Stock” With Runaway Revenuescenter_img The businessRetail companies often use inventory financing to cover the costs of their suppliers before actually selling any products. This is done by taking out a short-term loan with a bank to buy products intended for later sale. These products are also used as collateral on the loan just in case the retailer cannot find a [email protected] is attempting to offer a new and potentially disruptive method of doing this, whereby a company can achieve the same result without needing to take on any debt. So how does this work?Using the firm’s platform, a company can ‘sell’ its inventory to [email protected]’s creditors. This quickly generates cash, and the assets are used as collateral. It can then repurchase this inventory in the future once a customer has been found. But if it’s unable to find one, another business using the platform can then buy it for their own operations. Either way, a company can generate cash quickly, the creditors get their money back, and no debt is involved at any stage of the transaction.In my opinion, it’s an interesting idea that could carry the SYME share price higher if successful. After all, removing debt from the equation allows firms to utilise inventory financing without compromising their balance sheets. And based on the latest results from March this year, it has attracted some attention. It currently has a total of 187 customers (up from 82 a year ago), with more than €2.4bn of inventory assets moving through the platform.The SYME share price looks expensiveAs promising as this business idea may be, it’s far from risk-free. And looking at the volatile SYME share price, there appears to be quite a high level of uncertainty among investors. The business is not a profitable venture at this stage, and likely won’t become one without significantly scaling up operations.Should it fail to retain or attract businesses to its platform, creditors will find it more difficult to regain their original capital. Consequently, they will likely reduce their purchasing of other inventory assets, leading to the platform effectively becoming unusable. Based on existing performance, I think this is an unlikely scenario. But at this early stage, it is a possibility.What’s more, the valuation does seem a bit rich for my tastes. Even with the promising growth achieved in 2020, total revenue for the first six months only came in at £368,000. Looking at the SYME share price today, it has a market capitalisation of around £130m. Needless to say, that’s a lofty price tag.I’ll be keeping my eye on this business throughout 2021. But for now, I won’t be adding any shares to my portfolio, especially since I think there are far better growth opportunities available today at much lower prices. Image source: Getty Images. The [email protected] Capital (LSE:SYME) share price has had an interesting first year of trading. After coming to the London Stock Exchange through a reverse takeover, it has moved between 0.04p up to around 0.8p. That’s quite a wide 52-week range, and given that it’s currently trading around 0.4p, I think it’s fair to say this is a volatile stock.Such behaviour isn’t all that uncommon for young fintech companies.

Danny Cipriani – Melbourne Rebels, Wasps and England

first_imgDanny Cipriani earning his keep Rapper Lil’ Wayne Before ‘Cips’ decided to trade in the grey skies of London for the sunny pastures of Melbourne, he caught up with Rugby World to chat about Rocky the Pug, chick flicks and Lil’ Wayne.RUGBY WORLD: Who are the jokers at Wasps?DANNY CIPRIANI: Dom Waldouck, Rob Webber and Steve Kefu. We don’t do practical jokes so much, but this is one of the funniest things that’s happened. One day I brought in my dog and when Serge Betsen was sleeping in the physio room I put Rocky on his legs. He felt him climbing up his body, woke up and started screaming – the hardest man in world rugby scared of dogs! I try to steer clear of him on the training field now.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?DC: It’s little things like the ref getting pushed or someone falling over. You’re in the zone so don’t notice that much. Steve Kefu got hit in the face once and came up to me and said, “Am I still pretty?”!RW: Do you have any nicknames?DC: Cips and Ice Man. I only say that second one in a self-proclaiming way! It’s a cool nickname.RW: You should try it in Australia. What are the three must-have items you’re taking to Oz?DC: My dog, Rocky (below). He’ll be in quarantine for 30 days but I can see him every day so that’ll be fine. My Sony Ericsson X10 phone – it has my music and films on it. I really like R&B so I’ve got Jay Z, Dizzee Rascal, Jagged Edge, Maxwell – but I want to add more. The final thing would be my swimming shorts.RW: Do you have any phobias?DC: Big heights. I look down and it makes you want to jump. It’s called something… vertigo.RW: Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?DC: Really small people if it was a tight lift! Or someone with food, like a full trolley from room service. Denzel Washington would be quite cool too.The Notebook, Singing and his greatest memories…RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?DC: To fly. I’ve had dreams about just flying off and I love Superman.RW: Who’d play you in a film of your life?DC: Brad Pitt is the obvious choice. He’s a great actor and adapts to every role. Colin Farrell is Irish so he must know a bit about rugby.RW: And who would play your mum? TAGS: Wasps DC: Helen Mirren or the lady from The Notebook, Joan Allen.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS RW: You like chick flick The Notebook?!DC: It’s my favourite film. I’ve got in on my phone and I’ll watch it on long away trips.RW: Who would be your three dream dinner party guests?DC: Lil Wayne (rapper).RW: Isn’t he in jail?DC: I’d ask for special leave for him. Then Will Smith and Adele. I saw her at the Hollywood Bowl and she forgot the words twice but got everyone to love her by being funny. It was really endearing and an amazing performance. Will and Adele could do a duet and teach me something – I can’t sing.RW: When was the last time you laughed?DC: In this interview – it’s been fun! I watched The Blind Side the other day and there’s some funny bits in that as well.RW: What’s the best game you’ve played in?DC: The 2003 Daily Mail U15 Cup final for Whitgift v Millfield. We weren’t meant to win as they had such a strong side, but we did (24-7) – it was a great day. As a professional, it’s the Ireland game for England. And for Wasps, when I scored the winning try at Welford Road – everyone knows we love to beat Leicester.RW: What are your happiest and saddest memories?DC: My happiest would be on the beach with my family at Maracas Bay in Trinidad when I was four or five. I recently went to a funeral so that would be the saddest.RW: Any regrets?DC: Not yet.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?DC: A happy family life, and to bring my children up with good morals.Check out his profile for England Learn more about Danny’s teammates when he was at Wasps…Tom Rees Joe WorsleyAndy Powelllast_img read more

From meditation and comic relief to exercise and rest, there are many things you can do to keep your stress at a manageable level as Hurricane Irma approaches Florida.Cuddle UpMost days, you’re probably on the go. Errands, work, and family obligations mean you don’t have much downtime, but today, as you’re staying indoors and slowing down, get close to the ones you love. Snuggle on the sofa, invite the kids to have a camp out in your bedroom or take some private time with your spouse. Sharing love will diminish your stress level.Let Out Some LaughsAre you hunkering down with family or friends during the storm? Instead of anxiously awaiting the worst, enjoy the time together. Break out a joke book or funny card game, and give each other a reason to smile. Yes, the storm is serious–but that doesn’t mean you have to be.Find Serenity NowIf you have meditated before, you know of its calming effects. If you’re meditating for the first time, try this: Lean back in a cozy chair or lay on a bed. Close your eyes and breathe naturally. Focus on your breathing, or on something that makes you feel peaceful, like God; a loved one, a favorite vacation destination, or an activity you enjoy. Continue this way uninterrupted until you feel completely relaxed.Let Off Some SteamExercise is one of the best ways to rid yourself of nervous energy. A stationary cycle is one option, but you don’t need equipment to work out at home. Even if you’ve lost power, you can do burpees, sit-ups, push-ups, squats, and lunges–and get a great 30-minute workout. Afterward, you’ll feel so much better.Check-in With RealityHurricanes are so wild and unwieldy that they seem surreal. But they aren’t surreal at all. They have clearly defined weather events with many predictable elements that occur over a relatively short time frame. If you’re sensing that fear or even terror is creeping in, learn some facts about hurricanes so you can understand their characteristics. Fear is often rooted in a lack of information, so learn everything you can.Catch Some ZzzzzzzzzsDepending on how loud the wind and rain is as it beats against your walls and windows, it may be difficult to sleep. Go through an evening routine that helps you feel ready for bed. Drink some warm herbal tea or read a chapter of a book. If you have power, plug in a noise machine or use an app that helps drown out weather sounds, and settle in for the night. A good night’s sleep will help you feel your best the next day, allowing you to be clear-headed and decisive as you manage the storm’s aftermath. Rest is the ultimate cure for stress.

Use your superpower – vote

first_img Election 2018The importance of voting and making a difference in your communityFrom District 2 Orange County Commissioner Rod LoveAmendment XXVI, Section 1 of the United States Constitution states that: “The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age.” While this right and privilege granted to us as citizens seem so simply stated, I found that leading up to the primary elections last week many people continue to need the encouragement, related relevance and the understanding of the obligation to themselves, their family, community as well as to the country to VOTE.The individuals whom we vote for ultimately make decisions on matters that affect us as an individual, community and or businesses. However, it is our duty as voters to trust, but verify and insert accountability as we vote for an improved quality of life.  Hence, the purpose of this week’s column is to share and stress the importance of taking advantage of our right and privilege to perform a civic duty to VOTE, that is all too often unfortunately not taken as seriously as needed.As we watch the work being done at the White House and in the Capitol in Washington, D.C, as well as at the State, County and City levels, we must understand that the effects directly impact our communities, whether it is the impact of healthcare nationally, the continued affordable housing crisis here in Central Florida or simply the improvement of our transportation infrastructure that becomes more challenging every day based on the global success of our most critical economic engine in the State of Florida, our worldwide famous theme park attractions and multiple award-winning Orange County Convention Center.  In spite of the culture wars highlighted today, there are fundamental values that continue to ring true, no matter your race, ethnicity, age, gender or party affiliation.Honor, Integrity, and Valor will never be out of style.I am proud of the courage exhibited by the late U. S. Senator John McCain which is befitting of an American war hero who acknowledged his imperfections but fought through succumbing to doing what was “popular” to staying a course of doing what was “right”.Your vote, as much as some may not believe it, impacts budgets and policies at the local, state, and federal levels.  Each vote counts!  Click here or go to this link, https://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/5950/getLocal4.jsp?okay=true to find out who represents you at all levels of government.In a nutshell, elected officials often times prioritize their decision making based on need, advocacy, logically accumulated information, visioning, conviction and consideration of the limited available resources.  We will not always agree on everything, but remember there is always another issue, problem, or a solution that we can all agree to work together on.  Thus, let us not allow one disagreement to cement a division amongst us that becomes the obstacle of future progress.Please, VOTE!  If you are not registered to vote, please click here https://www.ocfelections.com/Pre_Voter_Registration.asp. The deadline to register to vote is 29 days prior to each election.  This deadline applies to new registrations and political party affiliation changes, so plan accordingly.  Your registration is not complete until your signed application form is either postmarked or received by a mandated registration site, such as the Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office, a public library or Driver License Office.I humbly request your presence in joining me in exercising the honor and privilege of being an American on November 6th(General Election Day) or during early voting.

Half of the visible structure, is cantilevered by 8 meters. The superstructure is a 16 meter long by 7.5 meter wide concrete box with no columns or beams. The 520m2 land contains this very large house that only has a 64m2 footprint.Save this picture!© Tunç SuerdaşThis is a house with a strict minimalist approach.  5 main materials were used. Concrete, Steel, Stone, Wood and Glass. The main ambition was to make as much use of the land as possible while creating a variety of wide and open spaces that can be used depending on the wind and weather conditions. The folding/sliding window and door systems, the 8m long cantilever and the pool placement on the side of the house are all design decisions to maximize the living areas. The folding/sliding systems make convertible living spaces to switch between indoor and outdoor. The cantilever was designed to minimize the footprint while maximizing open areas. The cantilever also serves to push the building mass toward the sea view, clearing the adjacent house, to create a large roadside terrace and to provide plenty of shade by the pool and garden.Save this picture!© Tunç SuerdaşSave this picture!© Tunç SuerdaşThe steep grade of the land would have created very large, long, narrow and unusable side gardens terminated by very tall retaining walls. So the design team decided to use the building’s side façade and the retaining walls bordering the property as a pool basin, connecting the ends with L shaped wall. This with the cantilever design created a very large pool and a sizable garden.Save this picture!© Tunç SuerdaşThe building façade is raw concrete which also makes up the load bearing structure, cast in a textured wooden formwork. The shutters are made from wood. Exterior flooring is done with The interior has marble flooring on the common areas and bathrooms. The bedroom floors are rustic oak wood.Save this picture!© Tunç SuerdaşThe landscaping was done with local plants such as olive, mastic and cypress trees in Cor-ten steel clad concrete planters. The site irrigation is done with an 80 metric ton cistern that collects rain water year-round.Save this picture!SectionThe house can be used as a main home or a summer home. But since it’s built in the resort town of Çeşme, Turkey, it will likely be used primarily as a summer home.Save this picture!© Tunç SuerdaşSave this picture!© Tunç SuerdaşThis house is a real estate development project.

Lom Hai Jai aims to address the human side of city architecture, it attempts to allow the occupants can break away from boxed air-conditioned “building block” (2-4 residential stories building which occupies a large portion of the city.) Which lacks sufficient natural light and airflow. The project is also a showcase of possibility. It aims to rebel the norm, an anti-thesis to the most dominance type of residential architecture in the region. The goal is to achieve a unique design at an affordable price with ideal level of privacy for each family members, resolving the existed typology of city twin house design.Save this picture!© Supee Juntranggur / Choat AusswasuteerakulThe project comprises of 5 units in a form of townhouse building. The house is designed in U-shape plan, mass being subtracted is replace by courtyard that connects the house spatially. The position of the courtyard is strategically place to allow the building to have many “fronts” facing outdoor space which dramatically allow a dramatic departure from a regular townhouse building. The upper part of architectural façade functions as a divider of the balcony to the exterior space. Privacy is preserved via the double layer façade with the outer ones as battens allowing users to look outside and maintaining airflow through the various opening of the house.Save this picture!© Supee Juntranggur / Choat AusswasuteerakulSave this picture!© Supee Juntranggur / Choat AusswasuteerakulThere are variations of opening designed specifically in harmony with the tree of each unit – a unique signature for each. Each of the function are connect visually by central inner courtyard. The U-shape planning fully utilize the usage of the inner courtyard for individual bedrooms and provide visual access for each function to the shared areas. Each room is provided with two or more openings placed to maximize airflow. The second-floor garden balcony platform embrace the living room with a touch of nature. This also allows natural lights in every space of the house, making it completely functional during the day without having to turn on a single light switch.Save this picture!© Supee Juntranggur / Choat AusswasuteerakulProject gallerySee allShow lessNorway Tells Pavilion / LCLA Office + Manthey Kula ArchitectsSelected ProjectsFanFood Cafe / MASTSelected Projects Share Area:  1500 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Supee Juntranggur / Choat Ausswasuteerakul+ 25Curated by Paula Pintos Share Architects: Studionomad Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927092/loaijai-residences-studionomad Clipboard ArchDaily 2018last_img read more
