Royston Wild | Thursday, 14th May, 2020 | More on: BMY HSTG SCT Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. These stocks have fallen since Covid-19! I’d buy them in an ISA today The coronavirus pandemic has seen shares in Hastings Group (LSE: HSTG) lose 6% of their value. It’s fought back mightily in more recent weeks but remains down since mid-February. I think this is a brilliant buy for investors thinking of how to use their new £20,000 annual ISA allowance.I find Hastings’s fall something of a surprise. Sure, investor mentality still remains a whisker away from regressing back into full panic mode. But insurance companies tend to perform more resiliently in tough economic times. Secondly, its motor insurance rival Admiral’s share price is up by mid single-digit percentages over the same period. This is also despite Hastings not having exposure to dangerous products like travel, for example.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…And lastly, Hastings’ earnings multiples and dividend yields are quite compelling at current prices. Its forward price-to-earnings ratio sits at just 12 times while it carries a chunky 6% payout yield for 2020, too. I’d happily buy this FTSE 250 share in an ISA right now.Another magic pickBloomsbury Publishing (LSE: BMY) has also slumped in value following the coronavirus outbreak. It’s down by around a third as the closure of bookshops across its territories has damaged revenues.The small cap generates around four-fifths of its revenue from print books and not even strong e-commerce sales from the likes of Amazon are able to stop Bloomsbury advising that a “substantial” drop in sales could be forthcoming. This is clearly a worry but it has a strong balance sheet to offset the current troubles and is undertaking measures like axing the dividend, cutting discretionary spending, and launching a new share placing to see it through the current crisis.It’s a fact that Bloomsbury’s long-term profits outlook remains a terrific one. Harry Potter will continue to remain a big money spinner for many, many years to come. The massive investment it has made in the digital academic arena should also pay off handsomely. It might trade on a high forward P/E ratio of 24 times, based on immediate earnings estimates. But I reckon ISA investors can still expect a brilliant return on their capital in the years ahead.A final ISA bargainNow Softcat (LSE: SCT) hasn’t suffered as much as those aforementioned shares over the past three months. Its shares are down by 2% following a recent bounceback in buyer interest. But I believe it has much, much further to rise.This tech giant stands to receive a shot in the arm in a post-coronavirus landscape. Why? Well the likely growth in remote working should drive demand for Softcat’s digital workplace services. Cloud computing is likely to become more important than ever before, improving revenues for its hybrid infrastructure. The FTSE 250 firm can also look forward to sales from its cyber security arm rising, too.City analysts don’t expect Softcat’s long record of annual profits growth to grind to a halt. This is despite signs that the global economy is already sinking into a painful downturn. It’s a testament to the company’s brilliant technologies and changes we are likely to see in the workplace. I’d happily buy this share in an ISA despite its elevated P/E multiple of 32 times.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Edward Sheldon, CFA | Thursday, 3rd December, 2020 | More on: AZN The last time I analysed AstraZeneca (LSE:AZN) shares was all the way back in April 2018. At the time, Neil Woodford had just sold the FTSE 100 pharmaceutical stock. I said, however, that it was worth holding on to.Holding AZN shares was certainly the right move. Since that article, AstraZeneca’s share price has risen from 5,400p to 7,800p – a gain of around 44%. At one point in July, the share price was above 10,000p.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…Would I buy AstraZeneca shares today though? Let’s take a look at the investment case.AstraZeneca: the investment caseIn today’s world, in which global populations are ageing and the burden of disease is increasing, I see AstraZeneca as well positioned for growth. Its areas of focus (Oncology; Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolism; and Respiratory diseases) are all highly relevant today. And with a portfolio of speciality and primary care medicines, a global presence, and strength in the emerging markets, it looks well placed for success.Of course, I can’t write an article about AstraZeneca and not discuss its Covid-19 vaccine. News that the group has developed a vaccine, in conjunction with Oxford University, is certainly exciting. However, this may not be the game-changer that some investors were hoping for. This is due to the fact that AZN has promised not to profit from the vaccine during the pandemic. The company’s approach has been to treat the development of the vaccine as a response to a global public health emergency and not a commercial opportunity. This explains why the share price hasn’t surged higher recently.Revenue is climbingTurning to the financials, AstraZeneca’s top-line growth has picked up recently, after stagnating for several years. Revenue in 2019 was $24.38bn, up from $22.09bn in 2018.Looking ahead, City analysts forecast revenue of $26.43bn this year and $29.89bn next year, which is encouraging. Profits are also expected to rise. Last year, AZN’s net profit was $1.3bn. This year and next year, analysts forecast net profit of $5.3bn and $6.7bn respectively. This is all quite positive. Balance sheet issuesThere are some issues that concern me, however. One is the level of debt on the company’s balance sheet. At 30 September, this stood at $13.76bn. Total equity was $13.62bn. This debt-to-equity ratio is a little higher than I like to see.The second is the valuation. Currently, AZN’s P/E ratio is 25.5 using this year’s earnings forecast. It falls to 20.7 using next year’s forecast. These valuations are not outrageously high. But they probably don’t leave a lot of room for error.My view on AZN todayWeighing everything up, I continue to see AstraZeneca shares as a hold today.If I owned the shares (I don’t), I’d hold on to them. If I didn’t, I’d keep them on my watchlist for now with a view to buying at a slightly cheaper valuation.At the moment, I think there are probably better stocks to buy.

As such, an investor who bought and held a diverse range of companies from the index could realistically have doubled their investment in large-cap stocks.Of course, there is no guarantee that the index will rise at all in future. It may spend the next decade at a lower price than where it trades today. However, its track record, low valuations across the index and the potential for compounding suggest otherwise. It means an investment made today could realistically double over the long run in a bull market.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 100% return from the FTSE 100The FTSE 100 has recorded annual capital growth of around 5% over the last 37 years. But its total returns are significantly higher when dividends are added. In fact, their reinvestment has been a large part of the total returns of UK shares in recent decades. They have turned mid-single-digit annual returns into high-single digit compounded returns.As mentioned, there is no guarantee that a similar level of return will be achieved in future. The future never mirrors the past, of course. However, the past performance of the index suggests that it has the capacity to produce new record highs after the 2020 stock market crash. It has always been able to achieve this goal in the past – even after its very worst crashes and bear markets.For illustration purposes, I will assume it does follow a similar return profile in future as it has done in the past. This means an investment made today could realistically produce 100% returns within a decade. As such, this could be significantly ahead of the returns of other mainstream assets over the same time period that have lower yields or higher prices than many large-cap shares.Managing a portfolio of UK sharesClearly, the FTSE 100 is far riskier than other popular assets such as cash and bonds. Therefore, it is imperative to diversify across a broad range of companies to reduce company-specific risk. So, too, is ensuring that only amounts of capital that are not required for everyday spending are invested in shares. Otherwise, they may need to be sold to cover expenses during what could prove to be a challenging economic period.Of course, the stock market’s past returns have not been linear. They have been hugely volatile at times – as the last year has shown. More ups and downs are likely in the coming years, as the economic uncertainty currently present plays out. However, history suggests that buying a broad range of large-cap shares and holding them for the long run has been a successful means of generating relatively attractive returns. This theme may continue after what has been a tough period for the stock market. Peter Stephens | Friday, 29th January, 2021 Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

The House 1559/36D is 836 sqm residential project in one of the privileged locations of Chandigarh flanked with green belt on one side and a view to the Shivaliks, juxtapose against an urban landscape. Our primary design response was to encourage the occupant of the space to be in a constant dialogue with either nature or art and sometimes with both. In response to David Craib’s quote “Design should never say, Look at me! It should always say, Look at this!” the most irrefutable thing was to raise the common leisure zone to the top of the house.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe terrace is morphed into an observation deck as it captures a snap of the hills. The canopy of trees from the green belt gives an illusion of an infinite green to the terrace garden. It is this introduction of raw greens that makes the swimming pool sensual and it becomes a part of something more than a physical activity. The way design responds to nature is sometimes almost too literal like the stone laying around the existing mango trees and at other times it is in the form of art left to the imagination of the occupant. There is a construction sincerity that prevails as levels interplay with each other to balance the depth of the pool with terrace level. The interiors follow the same logic of purity.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjA thoughtful experiential sequence in the below floors, meanders one through the living spaces on the ground. Ones existentially is felt by the translucent partitions. It aids as a visual invitation to spaces above and beyond you. Nature almost always sees you naked through the large glass doors and windows. Elements like a carved courtyard, glass bricks, louvers, pergolas, and other openings catalyze dialogue between the observer and observed via the play of light, shade, ventilation and the colors of nature.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe ground floor plan is a drama between three zones. It grades from public space like the great room and living area ambiguously interlocked with semi-private areas of the kitchen, dining lounge and family lounge that finally meets the private bedrooms at the rear end. The first floor is a Lego arrangement of three bedrooms each having its own private terrace. The spatial quality of these terraces is unique to one another. The master bedroom is intentionally a trapezoidal plan to re-orient the room for best vista and re-emphasize the importance of bio-philia. The bed is placed in the center to allow for a free flow of energy along borders but more than that it gives an ode to the wall that makes a room.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjAt some parts, flooring of most everyday spaces – the bedroom and the terrace merges, blurring the boundaries between what is inside and what we consider outside. At parts, existentially is further exaggerated by mirror mosaic tiles on ceilings, in chandeliers or at times as wall-art where the reflection of you becomes nature. The observer becomes the subject of their own observation. It is an attempt to redefine nature which leaves the occupant cognizant of his/her own presence.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjProject gallerySee allShow lessReception Center of Chengdu Xindu Cultural Center / DAGA ArchitectsSelected ProjectsVehicle Assessment Drive-Thru / STUDIO MOVESelected Projects Share Photographs Houses Continental Foundations CopyHouses•Chandigarh, India Lighting Consultant: Lead Architects: Badrinath Kaleru, Prerna kaleru “COPY” Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/940345/house-1559-36-d-studio-ardete Clipboard House 1559/36 D / Studio Ardete CopyAbout this officeStudio ArdeteOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChandigarhOn FacebookIndiaPublished on May 28, 2020Cite: “House 1559/36 D / Studio Ardete” 27 May 2020.

It is owned by a company, and it seems that large buildings such as factories will be built in the future. For that reason, we felt a sense of risk and discomfort in the way of building with a specific surface as the main facade. It seemed more appropriate to face the scales of the mixed towns, rather than specifically adjusting to the neighboring environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsFirst, four walls are arranged in the center of the site so as to correspond to the four boundaries, and the same facade and square plane are designed. The long and large walls, excluding the elements of factories and houses, are positioned as the material that connects the large scale around and the scale of a small house. Furthermore, by arranging the four walls at an angle with the corresponding boundary line and offsetting them slightly, we planned a margin to accommodate future changes in the surrounding environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsThe interior space is arranged so that all the rooms are in contact with these four walls, and there is a courtyard in the center.

Advertisement NewsLocal NewsNo start for Ballykeeffe ParkBy admin – May 27, 2010 596 LIMERICK County Council cannot give the official go ahead to construction of Ballykeeffe Park, at an estimated cost of in excess of €2million. While work was due to get underway last year, there is now mounting anger among local people that officially, the park “is not on the agenda.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Although a commitment had been given that development funds would be used to finance the project, the slump in the building industry had significantly depleted these funds,which, according to the council’s director of services, Paul Crowe has ruled out commencement of work on the park.Unhappy with the situation, Cllr James Collins said:“We have been told that funds cannot be spent unless money is coming in, and that can only happen with future development in an area that is already so developed on but Ballykeeffe Park is the number one issue among the electorate in my area”The councillor, who submitted a notice of motion calling for an allocation of €700,000 to commence work on the park over the next three years, said that discussion of the proposal has been deferred.Also annoyed that the issue had been put on the long finger was Cllr Richard Butler.The Ballykeeffe Park was first brought to the attention of locals in the Raheen/Dooradoyle area a number of years ago when the County Council sent out questionnaires to residents seeking their opinion on the proposed amenity.It was expected to have a children’s playground, an open green area, walkways with seating and playing pitchesLocals have now accused councillors of using the Park for self-promotion ahead of local elections.“A sign, showing where the park was supposed to be was just a stunt to secure votes before the elections,” said a resident of the Father Russell Road,“It’s a disgrace that such a large residential area doesn’t have a public park”, said another.Pointing out that the council has still not decided where the development funds will be spent, Cllr Collins says:“These funds were paid by developers for this kind of facility – €130,000 has been spent from the funds, paying the wages of planners but this should be coming out of the council’s revenue.
