See all posts by Manika Premsingh If you thought the stock market crash was over, think again. It’s true that the FTSE 100 index has recovered quite a bit from the sub-5,000 bottom it reached in late March. But it’s still a long way off from where it started 2020.With the coronavirus crisis still underway, I think it’s safe to expect more stock market volatility in the next few months. 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…Solving pressing problemsThat shouldn’t deter me from investing, however. On the contrary, high-quality FTSE 100 stocks are now available on bargain. I wouldn’t miss buying them now.Pharmaceuticals company GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) is one example. Its share price has recovered quite a bit from the lowest it touched, but it’s still at an over 15% discount compared with the highest levels seen in 2020. It announced yesterday that it’s collaborating with Sanofi, the French pharmaceuticals company, to develop Covid-19 vaccines.If this goes well, it could hold GSK in good stead over the long term. Its financial position is healthy and it’s also a dividend-paying stock. Its current dividend yield at 5.1% is a shade better than the 4.9% for the FTSE 100 as a whole. As a defensive stock, it’s an attractive buy during a slowdown anyway, but in a health crisis it’s even more so.Providing essentialsThe FTSE 100 British-Dutch consumer goods giant Unilever (LSE: ULVR) is another stock I like. Like GSK, it has seen a sharp share price drop in the stock market crash, but has recovered a fair bit. Going by past trends, though, I reckon the share price can rise much from here.Unilever’s price-to-earnings ratio (P/E), at 16.3 times, makes it a reasonable buy, compared to another consumer goods stock, Diageo, which has a P/E of 20.3 times. It’s also a dividend-paying stock, even though its yield is muted. At 3.4%, it’s below that of the FTSE 100. But the fact that it’s likely to be safer than many others could make up for this.Untouched and lucrative FTSE 100 stockPotentially debatable for ethical reasons, but a good income stock otherwise, Imperial Brands is another FTSE 100 share I’ve long liked. The tobacco biggie has an impressive dividend yield of 12.7%. While it’s been saying for sometime that it could cut dividends, it’s not yet done so. In fact, its Covid-19 update is reassuring. It said that there’s been “no material impact” on the business so far.At a time when many businesses are suffering, this defensive stock looks like a safe haven. And it’s still trading at an almost 21% discount from the highs seen in January this year, having fallen as the stock market crash started. All these stocks offer good long-term potential, not just because they have a past history of delivering to investors but because they give us something to look forward to. I’d think that investing in them today will hold us in good stead over time, stock market crash or not.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”last_img read more

RBS 6 Nations: Wales analysis. Five things we’ve learned

first_imgProp forwards are often portrayed as monosyllabic characters with a thick skin. However the criticism of the Welsh scrum in France was clearly taken to heart by Adam Jones and Gethin Jenkins. The Welsh scrum was monumental in Rome. The victory at scrum-time was made even more significant by the importance placed on that particular set piece by the Italian players and their coaching staff. However, as important as psychological wins are, it’s the more quantifiable measures that matter most and in that regard Wales dominated. Wales were 100% at the scrum – winning 12, losing none and forcing five penalties. The continued bullying of the Italian front three eventually led to Martin Castrogiovanni being sin binned in the 58th minute with Alex Cuthbert scoring two minutes later.  ‘Castro’ looked dismayed by his yellow card, but it was justified – his body popped in the scrum so many times that he looked like he was auditioning for an 80’s hip-hop video.Reliable: Halfpenny’s surely on the plane Down UnderLeigh Halfpenny – the rockA lot of emphasis has been placed on the importance of team captains in recent weeks – particularly in Wales. But Leigh Halfpenny’s performance against Italy shows that you don’t need an armband or title in order to be the fulcrum of the team. Halfpenny’s levels of reliability are beginning to put him in the same bracket as the very best in the world. Halfpenny’s goal kicking is genuinely world class, his completion rate rarely falls below 80%, so too is his tackling and his technique under the high ball ranks alongside Rob Kearney and Israel Dagg. Halfpenny is undoubtedly the first name on the Welsh team sheet and if you think that he won’t be one of the first names on the Lions team sheet, you’re in for a massive shock.A charge down will cost Wales sooner or later Italian pack fail: The Azzurri are known for the power in their pack, but how did it go so wrong against Wales?By Paul WilliamsWales executed the correct game planWALES’ GAME plan was executed perfectly in Rome – their territorially driven ‘kick chase’ was mightily effective in the soggy Stadio Olimpico. Dan Biggar and Leigh Halfpenny were instrumental throughout the whole game. Biggar’s array of wiper kicks combined with Halfpenny’s high balls and deep clearances kept Italy pinned in their own half for large swathes of the game. Wales restricted the Italians to just six meaningful  visits into the Welsh 22 – two of which resulted in poor snap drop goal attempts. Of course there will be those, particularly more casual fans, who bemoan the fact that Wales didn’t play in the wider channels. But the weather simply didn’t allow it – especially in the first half. There will also be those who question Jamie Robert’s role. Admittedly, he didn’t make much of an offensive impact, but that was deliberate. If you require justification of Jamie Roberts’ role in Rome simply take a look at which player led every single kick chase for 70 minutes – without a good chase it’s a bad kick.Unsung: Roberts did a lot of the dirty workIncredible defensive line speedWales’ defensive line against Italy was impressive. They had a tackle completion of 95% making 132 and missing just seven – as a comparison, the All Blacks have only managed to complete 95% of their tackles once in their last 14 test matches. Whilst the whole Welsh team tackled well, it was Ryan Jones who stood out – making 16 and missing just one. Jones is often described as ‘leading from the front’ – on Saturday this was literally the case with regards to the defensive line. Jones dictated where the tackle line was. The perceived wisdom is that the tackle line is drawn along the back foot of the set piece/ruck etc – in Rome Jones regularly nudged the tackle line back two or three  yards.  Jones, along with the rest of the Welsh eight, made it very difficult for Italy to get over the gain line. I swear even Parisse would have struggled – which is apt.Welsh scrum domination Despite having a near perfect game against Italy, Leigh Halfpenny fell foul of the low trajectory clearance kick. Against Ireland and France Dan Biggar did the same thing. It was just a matter of good fortune that Wales didn’t concede a try. The switch in modern line-kicking from a ‘spiral’ ball flight to an ‘end on end’ ball flight often lowers the ball’s trajectory and can decrease its speed through the air– increasing the likelihood of a charge down. A simple fingertip on the ball from the opposition means that everyone is  played onside and a poorly defended try line awaits. Ball flight may seem like a minor detail; but at some point it could have a major impact on the result for Wales. ROME, ITALY – FEBRUARY 23: Manoa Vosawai of Italy is tackled by Jamie Roberts of Wales #12 during the RBS Six Nations match between Italy and Wales at Stadio Olimpico on February 23, 2013 in Rome, Italy.

Amaranto Tulum House / Studio Arquitectos

This residence located in Tulum, aims to function as a retreat for a couple looking to get out of the daily bustle of the city and live in the Mexican Caribbean, enjoying the nature that floods the landscape of Tulum. The guiding axis of the design revolves around the customers’ passion, the experience that results from cooking, living and sharing with family and friends. The placement of the house is on the east side of the plot, taking advantage of the green buffer area that it has in the west, creating the feeling of greater openness of the natural areas, which are directly related to the interior spaces of the house, this being one of the main intentions of the project.Save this picture!© Pablo García FigueroaSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Pablo García FigueroaThe architecture can be seen from a human scale and its different perspectives allows to appreciate the ensemble of the built with the natural. The first perspective presented in the main facade is composed of a wooden lattice of local style that encloses the visual space of the garden and embraces the nature and the architecture, becoming a unique design element due to its curve, contrasting the general horizontality of the volumetry. Since entering the house the imminent opening of the spaces can be felt, with trees that pass through the volumes, windows that unite the interior with the exterior allowing all the areas to coexist in a close relationship.Save this picture!© Pablo García FigueroaThe process of choosing the materials of the house was of special importance since they had to correspond to the strong character of textures and colours of the region, as well as to the local workforce. Limestone, unique for its naturally clear tones, accentuates some interior and exterior walls, in the interior atmosphere the application of cement polished with chukum stands out, which is a typical polishing of the area achieved from the extract or resin obtained from an endemic tree that bears the same name. The woods of the zapote and tzalam trees star in the structures and carpentry details that provide warmth to the environment of the materials.Save this picture!© Pablo García FigueroaThe contrast is sought in the ocher red colour that reflects the character of the main volume and creates a reference to the farms of the Yucatan peninsula, characterized by the excellent use of the colour that gives joy and energy to its architecture. The daily activities of the house are fragmented into the three separated levels, where the distribution seeks a comfortable use, as well as a distinction between public and private areas. The ground floor has transparency, total opening of spaces, with all the social areas being interrelated. The first floor houses the private and intimate spaces and opens only to frame important visuals and the free passage of light and ventilation of the interiors. The north-facing corners open completely for this same purpose.Save this picture!© Pablo García FigueroaFinally, the rooftop is presented as a continuation of the social areas, an area dedicated to culinary experiences focusing on the grill. It is an open space with a pergola that allows enjoyment during the day, and an open lounge area with a small pool facing west, thus focusing the energy towards the sunsets and a perspective surrounded by the vegetation of the site. This is how Casa Amaranto coexists with its surroundings, designed to foster social experiences in the integration of its interior and exterior spaces, creating an atmosphere that seeks to reflect the essence of the region’s materials, in balance with its immediate context of the jungle of Tulum.Save this picture!© Pablo García FigueroaSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Pablo García FigueroaProject gallerySee allShow lessHilca House / Di Frenna ArquitectosSelected ProjectsNON-Standard Hotel / Nefa ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projects Amaranto Tulum House / Studio ArquitectosSave this projectSaveAmaranto Tulum House / Studio Arquitectos Houses Save this picture!© Pablo García Figueroa+ 26Curated by Clara Ott Share Lead Architect: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927256/amaranto-tulum-house-studio-arquitectos Clipboard Architects: Studio Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927256/amaranto-tulum-house-studio-arquitectos Clipboard CopyHouses•Tulum, Mexico Amaranto Tulum House / Studio Arquitectos Area:  463 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Eduardo Garcia, Pablo García, Miguel Angel Cervantes, José Martin Amate, Ivan Guzmán ArchDaily Photographs:  Pablo García Figueroa Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2018 “COPY” “COPY” Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Hansgrohe, BOSE, Viking, Chukum, Cocinas Palma Merida, Google, Santa Cruz Woodworks, Tiendas locales – Quintana Roo, West Elm Cancún Mexico Photographs CopyAbout this officeStudio ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTulumMexicoPublished on October 28, 2019Cite: “Amaranto Tulum House / Studio Arquitectos” [Casa Amaranto Tulum / Studio Arquitectos] 28 Oct 2019.

All three were forced to resign in April when the newspaper was temporarily banned.Jamari admits that several articles contained false information but he points that all of this information was sent from the same IP address and he suspects that the newspaper was set up, especially as it has been target of a major smear campaign in the government media in recent months.Reporters Without Borders urges the court to drop all the charges against these three journalists in line with the spirit of the national dialogue that King Hamad II proposed at the start of July.As already reported, the prison sentences imposed on 14 Shiite activists including the blogger Abdeljalil Al-Singace were upheld on appeal on 27 September. According to the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights (BCHR), they have begun a hunger strike to protest against the arrests of 40 women activists who staged a protest on 23 September to demand their release.Around 20 of the women protesters, including Noor Aqeel Al-Ghasra, a journalist with the daily Al-Ahad, have been charged with illegal assembly, disturbing public order by using violence, and inciting a revolt. According to some sources, Al-Ghasra was tortured by the police during her first night in detention. Her lawyer has condemned the conditions in which they are being held and the court’s refusal to let defence witnesses testify.Ali Almosawi, an Alam TV reporter who had been covering the anti-government protests in Bahrain since February, has been awaiting prosecution on treason charges since 12 September. The authorities have censored the TV station’s websites and severely restricted its broadcasts.All Internet activity continues to be closely monitored by the authorities. The BJDM website, for example, has been blocked ever since it posted a statement by former parliamentarian Ali Aswad on 16 August. Aswad and all the other parliamentary members of his party, Al-Wefaq, resigned their seats in February in protest against the government’s crackdown on the protests.The authorities recently hacked into the blog of Basema Al-Qasab, a journalist with the daily Al-Waqt who is due to appear before a criminal court on 14 November on charges of illegal assembly and inciting violence. The photographer Mojtaba Salmat is due to appear in court the same day on charges of helping foreign TV stations and participating in illegal gatherings.Al-Qasab was already interrogated on 19 May in connection with several Twitter messages and an article published on the BBC Arabic website on 17 February about violence against demonstrators by the security forces. She was fired from her education ministry post on 20 June.The lawyer of the detained online activist Hasan Salman Abu Ali has condemned the conditions in which he is being held and has called for his immediate release. Ali has reportedly been tortured and repeatedly humiliated since his arrest on 14 May 2009 on a charge of violating state secrecy for posting a list of names of interior ministry employees on an online forum. A court refused to release him in August on the grounds of misconduct in detention.The photographer Sadiq Marzouq did not respond to a summons to appear in court on 16 September because he feared he would be arrested. Marzouq was arrested on 16 March, after covering violence by soldiers against opposition demonstrations, and the following day police searched his home and confiscated his equipment.The journalist Reem Khalifa learned on 5 October from her lawyers that she had been summoned to appear before a judge the previous day.

ELAM: Volatility rises, commodity rally on hold

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness By admin – April 1, 2018 Previous articleParks and Recreation egg hunt kicks off Easter weekend in OdessaNext articleBUILDING PERMITS: Mar. 19 – Mar. 23, 2018 admin WhatsApp Pinterest The markets are closed for Good Friday and this is the end of the quarter. This is the first on quarter stocks have experienced a down turn in two years. Last Monday stocks advanced 669 points, the largest one-day gain since 2008. But plotted on the highly volatile charts since the all time high in late January, it does not look like a big deal.A mere 31.6 percent of the S&P 500 stocks are still above their respective 50 day moving averages. And that chart has a double bottomed at a mere 15 percent in February and March. In a normal correction this would be telegraphing perhaps the bottom of a ‘normal correction.’ The New York Stock Exchange Advance Decline Line experienced a cross to the downside of the 13 week Moving Average over the longer 34 week. The same thing happened in early February and the markets bounced back.Tech stocks have powered the rally since the Trump election. But now we have a tech wreck with Facebook leading the way lower. If there is to be a recovery here, the market will need to embrace the tech stocks again. On the positive side, the NASD 100 is still well above its 200-day moving average.Money has moved into bonds on the stock market sell-off. The TLT bond fund has moved from 117 to 122, but that is hardly what one would call a flight to quality.Tom Bowley, Stockcharts.comWould you like to guess how many days the NASDAQ gained OR lost 2 percent or more in 2017? Three times during the entire year. The difference last year is that expected volatility was nil. Below are the two 2 percent down days that we experienced in 2017, followed by the VIX reading the day before those losses:May 17th: -2.57 percent (VIX close on May 16th was 10.65)August 10th: -2.13 percent (VIX close on August 9th was 11.11)In both instances, the market was not fearful heading into that bout of selling. Not surprisingly, the market bounced back nicely. In other words, a selloff with a fairly low VIX typically presents buying opportunities as the market is generally in a good mood. Currently, however, the VIX stands at 22.50, double those 2017 readings as the market is gripped by fear. That leads to the type of wild swings that we’ve been enduring since early February and adds considerable risk to short-term trading.The U.S. Dollar has moved sideways all of 2018, no news to report there.Investors have been much more positive towards energy stocks than tech stocks. Anadarko APC has advanced since last September from 40 to 62.50. Apache APA has been in a down-trend which still shows no signs of abating. Overall the XLE Energy ETF suffered a two week drop from 78 to 66 and is still there. The Energy Service ETF XES is still languishing and that is not a good sign for the sector. FRAK the shale producer ETF has fallen from $17 to $14.75 and is slowly recovering.The weekly chart of crude oil is banging on the $66 previous level of resistance. Patience will let us know if higher prices lie ahead, that appears to be the case.It does appear that the gold and silver markets are preparing for a bull run. Hecla HL and Coeur D Alene CDE closed up Thursday, CDE advancing 3.76 percent. That does not turn their respective trends up yet. But mining shares look to be forming a base.Overall weekly stock trends have not turned down. But volatility remains high and shows little sign of abating. All that QE money spent by Central Banks the last nine years can still ignite some inflation.
