Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) is ahead of the FTSE 100 so far this year. The GSK share price is down by a mere 6% or so, compared with a drop of more than 20% for the big-cap index.Of course, most pharmaceutical stocks have done well during the coronavirus pandemic. Some have performed much better than Glaxo. However, I think that some of these high flyers are starting to look expensive. In my view, Brentford-based GSK now offers much better value than most rivals.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…Why is GSK cheaper?The group’s near-term growth prospects aren’t quite as exciting as those of rival AstraZeneca. Although one-off gains from stockpiling and acquisitions helped to lift GlaxoSmithKline’s sales by 19% during the first quarter, the outlook for full-year earnings is broadly unchanged this year.By contrast, AstraZeneca expects to report a “mid-to-high teens percentage” increase in adjusted earnings this year.Investors have chased Astra shares to record levels. But I think the good news is already in the price. I expect Glaxo’s growth rate to improve over the coming years. In my view, this is the better share to be buying today.Will coronavirus vaccine boost GSK shares?Many small pharmaceutical stocks have rocketed on hopes that they might discover a coronavirus vaccine. The GSK share price has stayed steady, even though Glaxo is working on a coronavirus vaccine too. But the company isn’t gambling everything on this. Instead, it’s taking a measured approach to creating treatments that could be used to manage the current pandemic and future, similar, viruses.Even if Glaxo succeeds, a coronavirus vaccine would be just one product in its portfolio of vaccines, cancer treatments and other medicines. Alongside this, the company also has a strong set of consumer healthcare products, including brands such as Sensodyne and Aquafresh.The diversity of this business suits me just fine — I don’t want to own all-or-nothing stocks. I want reliable performers that can chuck out growing profits and dividends, year after year. I believe Glaxo fits the bill perfectly.I think the GSK share price is too cheapI already own a reasonable chunk of GlaxoSmithKline stock, but I think the stock offers good value at current levels and I’m planning to buy more.One reason for this is simply that I think the shares are quite reasonably priced. At the time of writing, GSK shares are trading at about 1,670p. This price puts the stock on a forecast price/earnings ratio of less than 15, with a dividend yield of around 4.7%.That works for me, especially as AstraZeneca is currently trading on 27 times 2020 forecast earnings, with a dividend yield of just 2.6%. In my view, AZN’s stronger growth outlook is not enough to justify such a steep valuation.Split could lift sharesThere’s also a second reason why I’m buying GSK stock. The company is planning to spin out its newly-enlarged consumer healthcare business into a separate listing in 2021. Shareholders will receive shares in the new company.I’m pretty keen on this. I think the split should create two more efficient businesses with good long-term growth prospects. In my view, both halves of GSK are likely to attract higher valuations as standalone businesses. In the meantime, shareholders get a tasty 4.7% dividend yield. That’s why I’m building up my shareholding before the split.

The IAG share price is falling again. Here’s what I’d do now

first_imgThe IAG share price is falling again. Here’s what I’d do now Alan Oscroft | Friday, 22nd January, 2021 | More on: IAG Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Friday was a largely red day across the FTSE 100, with the fall led by International Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG). By late morning, the IAG share price had fallen by 5%, capping a weak few days.The company did get a bit of a boost in November, as successful Covid-19 vaccine results provided a rare bright patch for the stock market in 2020. But after that brief blip, the shares have pretty much stagnated. Over the past 12 months, since just before the pandemic struck, IAG shares have lost around 75% of their value. But should I buy them now for my Stocks and Shares ISA?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…Any hoped-for resurgence in the aviation business has received a hefty blow in 2021. It’s all down to the new, more contagious Covid-19 strain, and the resulting lockdown. And with the UK not expecting to complete its vaccine rollout until around September, I don’t see any great summer return to the skies.But on the upside, I reckon the British Airways owner has a strong enough balance sheet to last it through the crisis. So, at today’s severely depressed IAG share price levels, is it a bargain? Should I consider putting IAG on my 2021 ISA shortlist?A nice acquisitionThe IAG share price valuation might be pretty depressed right now. But the same is true for other airlines, and IAG is making the most of it. IAG’s Iberia subsidiary has been in the process of acquiring Air Europa, and the agreement has just been modified. An announcement Friday revealed the amount to be paid has been slashed by half, to €500m. And more, Iberia doesn’t have to pay until the sixth anniversary of the acquisition’s completion.So IAG gets to buy up another airline at half price. And it doesn’t have to pay for it for six years. I’ve seen plenty of acquisitions in my time, but it’s hard to recall one more attractive than that. If the IAG share price isn’t exactly soaring, deals like this are surely helping to hold it up.And this news comes on the heels of a boost the firm received at the end of last year. In December, British Airways agreed a five-year term-loan Export Development Guarantee Facility of £2bn, partially guaranteed by UK Export Finance. With drawdown planned for early 2021, it adds another chunk of liquidity to the bottom line. Prior to the new facility, IAG had had cash and undrawn facilities of €8bn at 30 November. That reinforces my feeling that IAG has comfortable liquidity.IAG share price cheap?So am I tempted to buy? In one way I am. That’s because I’m seeing increasing signs, like the events I’ve covered here, that the firm’s long-term future is healthy. At the same time, I think the IAG share price fails to reflect that future. With the current short-term pressure and massive uncertainty, that does not surprise me.But for me, I still see airlines in general as too risky. Maybe we won’t see anything as bad again as this pandemic in the coming years. But airlines seem to be uniquely susceptible to economic downturns, to fuel prices, and to a whole host of factors beyond their control. I think IAG shares will recover. But I’m sticking to safer sectors. Enter Your Email Address Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

Buying UK shares through a Stocks and Shares ISA could be a logical move. An ISA offers tax efficiency versus a standard share-dealing account. It can also be opened online in a matter of minutes, while its fees are relatively low and affordable.Of course, investing in the stock market through any type of account carries significant risks. Investors may experience losses in the short run and long run.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…However, through taking a long-term view and diversifying, it may be possible to build a growing ISA portfolio over the coming years.The tax efficiency of Stocks and Shares ISAsTax efficiency may not be a primary concern for all investors. But it could become increasingly important over the long run. As such, a Stocks and Shares ISA could be relatively appealing, since no tax is charged on any amounts invested or withdrawn. This contrasts with a regular share-dealing account. In that case, dividend tax and capital gains tax are both charged above their respective allowances.Although in the short run those allowances may be sufficient for many investors, over the long run, the growth potential of the stock market means that they may be too low to avoid paying tax. This may result in lower net returns versus investing through an ISA.Low costs of ISAsAlthough many Stocks and Shares ISAs have management fees, in most cases they are unlikely to be prohibitively expensive for any investor. In fact, the annual administration charges of ISAs can be as little as the cost of one buy or sell trade. Given the tax advantages offered by ISAs, this may prove to be a price worth paying to potentially enjoy higher net returns in the long run.ISAs also offer many of the same features as ordinary share-dealing accounts. Notably, regular investment services are widely available through ISAs. They help to reduce dealing costs and could make a positive impact on portfolio performance over the long run.Ease of opening and withdrawalsStocks and Shares ISAs are simple to open. They can be applied for online in a matter of minutes in many cases. This could make them accessible to a broad range of individuals.Furthermore, ISAs offer greater flexibility than other forms of investment accounts. For example, withdrawals cannot be made from SIPPs before the age of 57. However, withdrawals can be made at any time from an ISA without penalty. This may make them more appealing to individuals who could require access to their investment funds prior to retirement. It could also help with budgeting. It may be easier to plan spending based on a withdrawal that is not subject to tax, which could be the case with a SIPP rather than an ISA.

Jonathan Smith | Tuesday, 2nd March, 2021 I’ve been investing in the UK stock market for longer than I can remember. I’ve learnt many lessons along the way. One of the most powerful ones has been the importance of staying invested for the long term. This is valid for several reasons, but one in particular. Staying invested allows you to not worry about having to perfectly time the market. In fact, being active can actually reduce your annual returns if you miss out on just a few of the best trading days. Let me explain.Timing the marketI think we all know that perfectly timing the UK stock market is almost impossible to consistently get right. Timing the market is a wonderful thing if executed correctly. Take the stock market crash in March of last year. If I’d invested in a FTSE 100 tracker, I could have sold out a month before the low on February 14 with the index at 7,400 points. Then I could have bought the tracker again a month later on March 13 at around 5,366 points. I would have banked my profit, and been able to buy back over 25% lower!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…From that angle, trying to time the market looks appealing. The reality though is that it’s incredibly hard to get right. In my above example, although there was global concern brewing over Covid-19, it wasn’t obvious the UK stock market was going to tank. If I’d sold and the market had continued to rally, I’d have missed out from not staying invested.Adding numbers help to make the point clearer. If I’d invested for the past 30 years in a blend of FTSE stocks and never sold, my annual return would be 11.6%. Now if I had tried to time the market by buying and selling, and was sitting in cash for the 10 best trading days, my return would drop to 9.6%. Missing out on just 10 days cost me 2% a year for 30 years! If this was extended to missing the best 30 days, I’d be down to 7% a year. In monetary terms, if my starting investment size was £1,000, I’d have lost out on around £19,000 worth of potential profit.Lessons from the UK stock marketTo me, these numbers tell me several things. Firstly, that a long-term investment in the UK stock market can yield me strong returns (7%-11% a year). Secondly, that I don’t have to miss out on much in order to seriously eat into my returns. Finally, when looking at investments over several decades, that money lost can really start to add up.To caveat my argument, I haven’t looked at the amount I would have saved myself if I’d sold and sat in cash for the 10 worst trading days over this period. No doubt I would have saved a lot. But in the same way, as I can’t predict the best days, I can’t predict the worst. How would I know when to sell to avoid these days? Overall, I feel the opportunity cost of not being invested is simply too costly to allow me to try and time the market.I’ll carry on buying and holding shares I really believe in for the long term!

Ireland too powerful for Fiji in Dublin

first_imgSunday Nov 22, 2009 Ireland too powerful for Fiji in Dublin Ireland followed on from their draw against Australia last weekend with a comfortable 41-6 win over Fiji at the RDS in Dublin on Saturday.Leinster flyhalf Jonathan Sexton, standing in for the rested Ronan O’Gara, was impressive as he landed five conversions and two penalties on his first Test start.He picked up the Man of the Match award on his debut, with coach Declan Kidney saying he was impressed by Sextons maturity out there. Fijian coach Glen Ella also praised him.“I was impressed by Ireland’s No. 10,” Ella said. “He has a bright future for many years to come.”Fiji proved competitive at times but were outmuscled as Ireland scored five tries. Left wing Keith Earls scoring two, while others came from captain Brian ODriscoll, Rob Kearney, and Shane Horgan.Despite the significant score margin, ODriscoll said Fiji were better than it seemed.“One thing I have learned is that you have to grind down sides. That took us 60 or 70 minutes,” the captain said. “The days of cricket scores in these sorts of matches are behind us.”Ella also thought the scoreline flattered the Six Nations champions slightly.“We actually played much better than 41-6,” he said.“Obviously, Ireland are a quality team, they are very clinical. Naturally, we are disappointed but, in saying that, we improved from the Scotland game. We did, however, have a problem competing for the full 80 minutes.” Time: 05:51ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Oxford University take on Bayonne Espoirs – Tour of France

first_imgWednesday Sep 18, 2013 Oxford University take on Bayonne Espoirs – Tour of France Oxford University Rugby Football Club (OURFC) are touring France currently, and last week took on a Biarritz side comprised of ‘B’ team players under 23 up and comers. Tonight they face Bayonne u23 at 7pm at Stade des Remparts. Each year OURFC put together a pre-season tour in September with 30-40 players, coming together to not only bond and get to know one another, but also so that coaches can get a close look at which players to draft into the Blues team ahead of the Varsity Match in December.In the last two seasons they toured Russia, but this year it’s a two week trip to the South-West of France, specifically the French Basque country. In the first week they’ll stay in a small village in the heart of the Basque mountains, where they will train on the local club’s pitch, go rafting, hiking, and even do some co-training sessions with local club’s first team.Captain John Carter, who has featured on Rugbydump before, said: “The experience of visiting France in September for both rugby and cultural reasons, will play an enormous part in myself and the coaching team bringing the squad together and will be vital in building the team ethos and spirit required for a successful Varsity Match team.”In their opening fixture they lost 24 -21 to the Biarritz Espoirs, conceding four tries to the three they scored. It was a good performance and topped off with a great post match reception, where the president of Biarritz exchanged a shirt with captain Carter and promised a re-match soon. Oxford are aiming to make ammends against Bayonne Espoirs tonight, with kickoff at Stade des Remparts at 7pm. More on the match is availble on their Facebook event page.The tour is sponsored in part by Rugby Centric, a great resource with plenty of information on all things rugby for aspiring young players, including training, nutrition and rugby skillsADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityIn place of a double-pitched roof, a simple yet structured, open-plan floor is realized atop the house, a building from the 1930s, which had been previously refurbished in 1990.Save this picture!SketchThe architectural idea was to place a deliberately unobtrusive structure upon the existing building. The second floor addition stands in contrast to the massive lower level without dominating it, creating a focal point for the house via massive glazing, without disturbing views of the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© David Matthiessen for Behnisch ArchitektenThe structure’s cantilevers on the south and west sides of the house place emphasis on the new addition and function as dividing elements between the existing structure and new roof system. Simultaneously, they function as canopies, creating covered areas for the garden. The position of the new volume – the “glazed box” – is a response to building regulations and a solution to differentiate each garden on the sides of the building, orienting them toward the sun and views.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe location and organization of programming for the two lower floors – the entry level and a lower level, below – remain unchanged.The top floor has its own organization. The approximately 150m² open-plan space is zoned by “boxes” – the intimate private rooms used as a dressing room, bathrooms, and a guest room (the only “old” room retained from the original house.) A large sliding door divides the upper floor from the master suite and the guest areas with a lounge, inner stairs, a library, and a home office.Save this picture!First Floor PlanAn outside staircase, placed on a partly demolished oriel, leads up to the top of the new flat roof, where a new terrace is created from timber flooring. The result is a generous residential level that responds to the hillside and provides views of the city.Save this picture!© David Matthiessen for Behnisch ArchitektenThe load bearing capacity of the home’s foundation and walls was unknown. Therefore, prefabricated laminate timber was used as a lightweight solution to construct the new top floor, creating an additional weightload that only marginally exceeds that of the home’s former roof structure.Save this picture!SectionThe triple-glazed façade is trimmed in wood framing. Floor to ceiling windows shape the light throughout the upper floor, providing panoramic views and a sense of transparency. Exterior metal mesh roller shutters offer a filtered view of the surrounding landscape while protecting interiors from solar overheating.Save this picture!© David Matthiessen for Behnisch ArchitektenRadiant panels made of gypsum fiberboard line both ceiling and floor and serve to regulate the home´s interior climate by cooling it in summer and heating it in winter. Radiant heating and cooling systems are further enhanced by deep probe geothermal drilling (3m x 90m), and the installation of a heat pump and solar thermal panels on the roof. The home’s existing gas heater acts as a back-up system and provides additional heating when needed. In terms of overall energy efficiency, the new structure is composed of highly energy efficient materials (e.g. glazing, roof insulation, etc.) while the windows and insulation on the existing part of the home was not altered.Save this picture!© David Matthiessen for Behnisch ArchitektenInterior design and materialsIn contrast to the glazed, geometric facade, the interior finishes create an inviting, relaxed atmosphere. The floor and walls of the private rooms are clad in walnut panels, evoking a quiet warmth with unobstructed surfaces that hide doors, cabinetry, and a built-in entertainment system. The existing inner staircase was newly finished with walnut treads and a new glass railing. A bookshelf envelops the outer walls of the guest room.Save this picture!© David Matthiessen for Behnisch ArchitektenUpon entering the bathrooms, the atmosphere changes. Walls are dark and simple, and pops of color in the furniture, cabinets, and fixtures are set as counterpoints. Also, the dressing room is different: white wooden cladding on the walls and moveable wooden shutters along the façade create a distinct character.Save this picture!© David Matthiessen for Behnisch ArchitektenThe existing entry floor was adapted to the new upper floor by a number of small inventions. For example, a new ceiling in the living room includes radiant panels, new lighting, and a HiFi sound system; two columns were removed andall interior doors were enlarged; the downstairs bathroom was renovated; and a new staircase railing leading to the lower level was installed. The dimmable LED lighting system was designed with recessed, moveable spotlights, and additional lighting can be added when needed. Landscaping was performed by a professional gardener, chosen by the client.Project gallerySee allShow lessHow Architecture Graduates are Animating the Film IndustryArchitecture NewsOffice K2 / Baraban +Selected Projects Share Architects: Behnisch Architekten Area Area of this architecture project Haus S / Behnisch Architekten Projects “COPY” 2014 Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/771722/haus-s-behnisch-architekten Clipboard Save this picture!© David Matthiessen for Behnisch Architekten+ 24 Share Year:  Area:  2000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Haus S / Behnisch ArchitektenSave this projectSaveHaus S / Behnisch Architekten Germany CopyAbout this officeBehnisch ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationStuttgartGermanyPublished on August 15, 2015Cite: “Haus S / Behnisch Architekten” 15 Aug 2015.

Pa. guv meeting disrupted by protest

first_imgWW photo: Joseph PietteProtesters disrupted Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett’s “Town Hall” meeting on Sept. 19. Ten minutes into the event at the Philadelphia Art Museum, three banners criticizing cuts in school funding and general assistance, plus the building of new prisons, were unfurled as a third of the audience chanted slogans for seven minutes while police escorted those holding the banners out of the building — one banner at a time. Then, as Corbett’s interview started again, protesters stood up and disrupted his talk every few minutes, raising the pending execution of Terry Williams, the cuts in general assistance, fracking and the other issues, including education cuts.A groundswell of “boos” erupted whenever Corbett made a particularly unpopular statement. Meeting organizers ended the event a half-hour earlier than its planned 90 minutes when it became clear that Corbett could not answer questions without being shouted down.The quickly organized coalition behind the disruption included anti-fracking activists, Act-Up, Decarcerate PA, Fight for Philly, and others organizing against the elimination of state sponsored programs for the poor, including general assistance and adult basic health care, and the reactionary, racist Voter ID law. A number of Occupy Philly activists were also on hand.Afterwards, around 50 people were able to temporarily hold Corbett “hostage” in the indoor parking garage of the museum by blocking the exit ramp for 30 minutes. “See how prison feels!” was yelled towards where Corbett was trapped, before police finally cleared the entrance and escorted the governor’s convoy of two large black SUVs past the demonstrators, who chanted: “Jail Corbett!” and “Who do you protect?! Who do you serve?!” a rhetorical question aimed at the police. read more

Lower Milk Prices in 2018?

first_img SHARE Lower Milk Prices in 2018? Home Indiana Agriculture News Lower Milk Prices in 2018? Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twittercenter_img As America’s dairy farmers look to 2018, they are wondering whether or not higher prices are on the horizon. A massive herd, large domestic supply, falling domestic demand, and a strong dollar all show that prices may slip before they improve. Mike North of Commodity Risk Management says there is a growing supply of product across the board as we enter the time of year when dairy consumption typically drops. North adds, “We’re continuing to make product that’s adding to an already large supply, so there’s a massive collision of increased supply and declining demand.” Scott Brown of the University of Missouri says it is not just domestic oversupply that is causing challenges, but global milk supplies are continuing to increase as well.The National Milk Producers Federation and the International Dairy Foods Association are looking for creative ways to help stimulate domestic demand for dairy in an attempt to eat through some of the excess supply. “One of the things we’re looking at,” says Michael Dykes of the IDFA, “is can we do something with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to incentivize dairy consumption.” SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Dec 27, 2017 Previous article2017 a Year of Market Surprises on the HAT Tuesday Morning EditionNext articleBacon Hoping for Move from Farm Bureau Board to Indiana Statehouse on the HAT Wednesday Morning Edition Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more
