Covid-19 is likely to leave a lasting impression on consumer behaviour, and technology is likely to benefit.The FTSE 100 isn’t known for its technology prowess. It doesn’t have stocks like Apple, which is listed in the US.However, there are plenty of companies in the FTSE 100 that have technology at their core. Sage, Rightmove, and Hargreaves Lansdown are good examples.I think these kinds of companies are going to be the real winners in the years ahead as the world becomes more digital.

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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares As a result of coronavirus disruption, some sectors of the FTSE 100 have been hit hard in 2020. Airlines are a good example. This year, British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines is down over 70%. Meanwhile, easyJet has fallen about 65%.From a contrarian perspective, airline stocks definitely look interesting. There’s certainly a chance these stocks could rebound. However, if you invest in airlines now, you’re taking on a fair bit of risk. What if travel doesn’t return to normal for years? Will these companies be able to survive in their current form? With so much uncertainty due to Covid-19, a near-term rebound is not guaranteed.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…In my view, investors are better off investing in sectors that are holding up well in the current environment and will continue to hold up well if economic conditions deteriorate further. With that in mind, here are my three preferred sectors of the FTSE 100 to invest in right now.A defensive sector  The first sector I like in the current environment is healthcare. And not just because it’s leading the fight against Covid-19.What I like about healthcare is that it’s a defensive sector. People still buy medication and have operations when the economy is contracting.I also like the long-term growth story associated with the sector. The world’s ageing population, rising emerging market wealth, and the increasing prevalence of major health issues are dominant structural forces that should provide tailwinds in the years ahead.There are some excellent healthcare stocks in the FTSE 100. Smith & Nephew, GlaxoSmithKline, and Hikma are some of my favourites. I think these kinds of stocks offer a favourable risk/reward proposition at present.Resilience in a downturn Another sector of the FTSE 100 I like right now is consumer goods.The reason I like consumer goods is that companies in this sector tend to be very resilient because they sell everyday products that people can’t do without. It’s also worth pointing out that consumer goods companies that focus on cleaning products are benefiting from the increasing focus on hygiene. Reckitt Benckiser is a good example. Sales of its cleaning goods (Dettol, Lysol) are flying right now.Consumer goods firms may not be the most exciting companies, however, they tend to be solid investments. Like healthcare stocks, they can provide you with portfolio protection.My top FTSE 100 sector Finally, my top FTSE 100 sector remains technology. I’ve been bullish on the tech sector for a while now, but the disruption we’ve all experienced from Covid-19 has amplified my bullishness. As the world has been forced to go into shutdown mode in the last few months, it’s tech companies that have really shone.Some areas of technology that are booming right now include: “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFAlast_img read more


The Cineworld share price is up 250% in four months! But I’m not buying

Posted On Jul 5 2021 by

first_img Last month the UK government unveiled its new roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions in England, and the Cineworld (LSE:CINE) share price has exploded. In fact, the stock price has been climbing rapidly over the last four months, rising by around 250% since November last year.As the vaccine rollout continues, it seems to me that investors are gaining hope for a return to normality later this year. And with a lot of pent-up demand, as well as a long list of delayed blockbuster movies waiting to be released, the cinema industry could soon be returning to its former glory.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…But I’m not going to be adding the shares to my portfolio any time soon.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Can the Cineworld share price recover?Under the lockdown roadmap, cinemas and other indoor entertainment facilities will be reopening in early summer this year. Needless to say, this is fantastic news. But remember, Cineworld is an international business. And only cinemas in Britain are allowed to reopen under this plan.However, the management team appears to be reasonably confident. In fact, its entire bonus scheme for the next three years is directly linked to the stock price’s performance. This acts as an incentive to get the business back on track and aligns management’s interests with shareholders — something I like to see.Furthermore, the Bank of England has revealed that the household savings ratio (household savings as a proportion of disposable income) has risen from 9.6% to 29.1% in the first six months of 2020 alone. So economists are predicting a significant boost in consumer spending as lockdowns are lifted. Combining increased savings with the aforementioned pent-up demand certainly makes me believe a large number of people will return to enjoy the big screen experience.But this is a best-case scenario. It’s quite likely that many individuals will not be comfortable enough to go to the cinema right away. That’s especially when streaming services such as Netflix or Disney+ offer a much safer experience at home.Debt levels are risingCineworld had to secure additional debt financing to remain afloat in 2020, and its share price has suffered for it. Usually, this wouldn’t be a significant issue, except the stock had a monumental amount of debt beforehand.For years, Cineworld has employed an acquisitive growth strategy. Meaning it uses debt to fund the acquisition of cinemas to expand its portfolio. Today, the chain is the second largest in the world, with over 790 locations. The strategy certainly achieved growth, but it failed to create value.In 2019 the firm had around $7bn of debt. Of the $725m operating profit generated that year, $499m was gobbled up by interest payments alone. Since then, the total debt level has risen even further towards $8.5bn. Even if Cineworld successfully returns to its pre-Covid operating levels, almost all of its profits are going to evaporate to cover interest payments. Consequently, there will be very little left to reduce debt levels, reinvest in the business, or return to shareholders.And that, to me, is a deal-breaker, especially since there are many other fantastic businesses out there. So personally, even though the Cineworld share price could continue to rise this year, I won’t be buying the shares. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”last_img read more


Fiji’s Nemani Nadolo scores hat-trick against Georgia

Posted On Jun 23 2021 by

first_img Fiji’s Nemani Nadolo scores hat-trick against GeorgiaFiji had to wait for three weeks to play their first Autumn Nations Cup match, but it took them only 72 seconds to score a try.Nemani Nadolo has been absent from the international stage for two years, but it took the Fiji winger just 63 minutes to score a hat-trick.Vern Cotter’s first Test in charge of Fiji ended with a 38-24 victory in this seventh-place play-off against Georgia at BT Murrayfield – and it was an entertaining match to watch. Fiji’s delayed arrival in the tournament after a Covid-19 outbreak lived up to expectations as the islanders scored six tries in all.The first try came within two minutes as Fiji launched an attack from a scrum in their opponents’ 22. Josua Tuisova and Albert Tuisue made strong carries in the centre of the field, then the ball bobbled wide for Nemani Nadolo to collect and power through Soso Matiashvil and Akaki Tabutsadze to score in the corner. His other two tries came in four second-half minutes. The first was created by a Ben Volavola grubber kick, which Nadolo bent low to collect and then he slid over in the corner.The second came from a Fiji lineout in the Georgia 22, Sam Matavesi looped round and fed Nadolo, who was able to burst through two defenders to complete his hat-trick.All smiles: Nemani Nadolo enjoys scoring his third try against Georgia (Getty Images)Fiji’s other tries came from debutant Johnny Dyer, who powered over from close range following a five-metre lineout, Tuisova, who was put into space on the wing by a long Levani Botia pass, and Mesulame Kunavula, who also marked his first cap by crossing the line after a superb offload from Tuisova.However, it wasn’t one-way traffic in Edinburgh as Georgia scored three tries of their own. The first came in the 23rd minute as Giorgi Melikidze drove over from a couple of metres while Beka Saginadze scored twice in the final 12 minutes.There was little doubt over the Man of the Match, though, as Nadolo picked up the gong. His three tries mean he has now drawn level with Vereniki Goneva as Fiji’s top try-scorer, with both having 22 Test tries to their names.This match proved to be worth the wait for both Nadolo and Fiji. The Leicester winger stars as Fiji beat the Georgians 38-24 at BT Murrayfield LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Early start: Nemani Nadolo opened the scoring after just 72 seconds (Getty Images) Leicester winger Nadolo hadn’t played for Fiji since 2018 after previously retiring from international rugby, but after opting to return to the Test arena he was quick to show he hasn’t lost his scoring touch.

Located in Orcas Island, Washington, Suncrest Residence sits among trees, rocks, ponds, and bald eagle nests. Heliotrope Architects designed this new residence to minimize site disturbance and blend in with its existing environment. The result is an award winning residence (Merit Award 2010 AIA Honor Awards for Washington Architecture). More photographs and drawings following the break.

The site is ecologically sensitive, with bald eagle nests and trees prone to blight if disturbed. Further, soil coverage is minimal over the native basalt, therefore stormwater management is a serious concern. Our clients desired a work of architecture that took into consideration these constraints and minimized site impacts while creating a work of architecture that utilized their favorite materials (wood and concrete) and connected them intimately with the land and the view. Save this picture!Our design solution situates the home where the forest gives way to a large rocky clearing with views to the sea. The structure is ‘wrapped’ around a prominent outcropping of rock and carefully situated to require a minimum of tree removal. Strict site access protocols were put in place for the duration of construction in order to minimize site disturbance, and the landscape has been carefully restored. Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschniederThe long, narrow footprint of the home allows every room a view of the sea while also retaining a strong connection to the surrounding forest. The material palette was chosen to harmonize with the colors and textures of the natural surroundings – primary materials consist of wood from the forest (doulgas fir and madrone), concrete, zinc, steel and glass. This palette has a strong dialogue with the art collection featured throughout the home – most of which is the work of the wife.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschniederProject gallerySee allShow lessWestside Bruennen / Studio LibeskindSelected ProjectsHouse On The Roof / FREAKS freearchitectsArticles Share Houses Save this picture!© Benjamin Benschnieder+ 10 Share 2009 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/102137/suncrest-residence-heliotrope-architects Clipboard United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/102137/suncrest-residence-heliotrope-architects Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

Revised Face-to-Face Code of Fundraising Practice Launched for Public Consultation

Posted On Jun 16 2021 by

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Revised Face-to-Face Code of Fundraising Practice Launched for Public Consultation The Institute of Fundraising (‘Institute’) invites fundraisers to contribute their comments on the draft Face-to-Face Activity Code of Fundraising Practice that has been launched for public consultation. The existing Code has been revised to reflect developments in face-to-face practice and incorporate face-to-face engagement (often termed ‘prospecting’). The public consultation is for a period of 12 weeks and closes on Friday 8th August 2008.As well as reflecting the developments in face-to-face activity, the revised draft Code also details legal and best practice ./guidance in the areas of face-to-face campaign planning, the training of agents, the conduct of approaches, and identifying sites and procedures. Comments are welcome on all aspects of the draft Code, but the Institute of Fundraising is particularly interested in the sectors’ views on:– Whether face-to-face engagement should be treated in the same way as face-to-face fundraising– Whether this draft Code would help or hinder face-to-face activity?Megan Pacey, Director of Policy and Campaigns at the Institute of Fundraising, says:“It is vital that all stakeholders engaged in face-to-face activity input into this Code of Fundraising Practice consultation in order to ensure that this Code fully meets the needs of the sector and maintains a sustainable environment for face-to-face activity.“Face-to-face fundraisers have recently felt the full force of a legislative environment as they have been required to implement new solicitation statements. The challenges that many have experienced in implementing these strengthened legal requirements has demonstrated why as a sector the Codes of Fundraising Practice matter and why we must embrace self-regulation.”The revised draft Face-to-Face Activity Code of Fundraising Practice can be viewed at www.institute-of-fundraising,org.uk/currentconsultationsSubmissions should be sent by email to:[email protected] by post to:Policy TeamInstitute of FundraisingPark Place12 Lawn LaneLondonSW8 1UD-ENDS-MEDIA ENQUIRIESFor further information please contact:Diana Mackie Tel. 020 7840 1027/ 07793 802 852Institute of Fundraising email: [email protected] TO EDITORS1.
