Royston Wild | Tuesday, 27th October, 2020 | More on: THG 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.center_img It’s clear the global economy faces significant challenges following the mass Covid-19 breakout of early 2020. But is this a reason for UK share investors to put their chequebook away? I don’t think so.As a long-term investor, I haven’t stopped investing in my Stocks and Shares ISA. I buy UK shares with a view to holding them for a minimum of 10 years. Over this timescale the impact of economic downturns on their performance is greatly reduced. UK share investors tend to make an average annual return of 8% to 10%, data shows.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 top-class UK shareBesides, there are plenty of quality UK shares that should deliver excellent profits growth, irrespective of the economic downturn. For example, grabbing a slice of the e-commerce sector is a good idea as online shopping activity booms. I’ve bolstered my own exposure during the summer by investing in logistics specialists Tritax Big Box REIT and Clipper Logistics. And I reckon buying e-retailer The Hut Group (LSE: THG) is another good idea.While broader retail conditions remain difficult, online operators seem to be pulling away. This UK share saw revenues growth accelerate in the third quarter, prompting the company to lift its full-year forecasts.But the strong performance of its own retail operations — which cover a broad range of segments from clothing to cosmetics, nutrition to experiences — is not the only reason why THG is a white-hot play on the e-commerce phenomenon.Tech titanThe company also licences its THG Ingenuity software platform to help retailers and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) manufacturers reach online shoppers cheaply and easily. It’s hoped THG will be able to replicate the success of Ocado. This FTSE 100 company also provides its tech to other retailers via a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.According to THG: “Ingenuity’s rapidly growing list of partners includes Nestle, PZ Cussons, Homebase, Group L’Occitaine, Clorox and Johnson & Johnson, all of whom who are signing long-term SaaS contracts to deliver digital transformation on a global scale.”The rush for its tech propelled revenues from Ingenuity by more that 170% year-on-year during the last quarter. And the UK share has kept the contract wins coming by inking a five-year partnership with Hotel Chocolat last month. The deal is intended to help the chocolatier expand into the high-growth US marketplace.THG’s share price rocketed 25% on the day it made its London Stock Exchange debut around six weeks ago. And it’s continued to surge from its IPO offer price of 500p per share, last dealing at 715p. I fully expect this UK share to continue swelling in price as e-commerce goes from strength to strength. I think this UK business could emerge as one of the brightest growth stocks of the 2020s. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Personalize your stream and start following your favorite authors, offices and users.Go to my stream Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertText description provided by the architects. The Ter Pitte project is part of a radical renovation of a street block. The demolition of the empty Thiery lift workshops in the centre of the block created space for a new division of the land and typological renewal.  Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe aims were ambitious: to build six urban dwellings, giving each of them a ‘sense of the street’, on a plot barely wide enough for three terraced houses. On the ground floor there is direct access to three dwellings with completely different plans. A deep and narrow ‘pipe house’ stretches to the gardens in the rear. A remarkable element is the multipurpose garage‐ office‐workshop next to the street. Deeper into the plot, a long top‐lit corridor provides access to two bedrooms that adjoin two small patios.  Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertOpen to the sky, and in deep‐brown brick, these are rooms of light and earth in the middle of the house. The corridor ends in the daytime area which, surrounded by all the gardens, is almost like a pavilion amongst the greenery. The second dwelling, the smallest but with the greatest width, is also entirely on the ground floor. All the daytime spaces are contained within the breadth of a single bay that runs from street to garden. A central core with the kitchen and washroom provides a certain separation between a multipurpose room near the street and the more intimate living area adjoining the garden. The third dwelling is conceived as a maisonette. On the ground floor it has the daytime areas and a walled garden.  Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertA transverse open staircase in the living area partly mediates the view in from the street. The fact that all three dwellings draw the street inside, in their own way, is interesting but risky. Everyday life will determine whether the softness of the dwelling will win out over the hardness of the city. The three dwellings on the upper floor are accessible from street level by way of a semi‐private transitional space with stairs and landings in the open air. This shared access is an informal, attractive and safe meeting area that enables direct contact with the street via the stairs or the gallery. All three dwellings are of the maisonette type with daytime areas on the access level and three bedrooms upstairs. All the upper dwellings have at least one outside terrace with generous proportions and guaranteed privacy. The middle andhighest dwelling steals the show. A brown‐green volume clad in roof tiles divides the white upper section and towers over it. It is like living in a tree, in the midst of the city. In this design, this simple metaphor was elaborated in an infectious combination of naivety and professional skill — the trademark of Import.Export Architecture.  Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertA photo of the imposing crown of a tree was ‘pixelated’ to the scale of the roof tiles. The designers sought out the right tile for each pixel amongst batches of approved and rejected roof tiles with related green tints. Here and there a tile with nesting openings was inserted for swifts, and some of them were converted into bulb‐holders. In the dark this tree house assumes a magical look — a wink to the late‐night passers‐by. Import.Export’s naïve poetics give something to both the building and the street. One cannot simply walk past it without looking. This project sweeps aside the false opposition between architectural quality and sale ability that today’s real estate market cannot, or will not, relinquish.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Import Export ArchitectureThe complex intertwining and stacking of dwellings at Ter Pitte is anything but ordinary, but it results in a marvelous transition between public and private spaces. An interaction arises with the street and thus social control, while the occupants gain an exciting and yet reassuring place to meet up. At the same time, the act of inhabitation remains very familiar and the houses, especially the maisonettes, apparently conform very much to the market. Bold real estate with a flourish, much in demand and affordable! A strategy suited to discourage young families, who are slightly better off and looking for a good home, from leaving the city. In the future, more account will nevertheless have to be taken of the strict (too strict?) new regulations on accessibility.Save this picture!Floor PlansProject gallerySee allShow lessHousing in Baracaldo / Linazasoro ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsPoint92 / Zlg DesignSelected Projects Share 2008 Photographs Copylast_img read more

Perched on a woodland bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, this home, designed in collaboration with Environment Architects (AOR) of Traverse City, MI, is an assemblage of three offset structures that play off each other— the ‘gathering’ structure contains the living room, kitchen and a covered ‘vista’ seating terrace; the two ‘sleeping’ structures house the master bedroom suite and three children’s bedrooms. A dining area breezeway connects all three structures.Save this picture!Site planThe roofscape has gentle undulations that follow the movement of the natural terrain and make a playful reference to the vernacular architecture of nearby fishing villages. The resulting rhythm of exposed wood beams provides layers of asymmetrical vaults throughout the interiors.

Oil Higher on US Economic News

Posted On Jun 14 2021 by

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Energy Oil Higher on US Economic News Previous articleA Different Vision of AgricultureNext articleWTO Ministerial Agreement Gateway to World Ag Trade Reform Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Dec 8, 2013 SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter New York-traded crude oil futures rose to a five-week high on Friday, as upbeat U.S. economic data boosted optimism over the health of the world’s largest oil-consuming nation.  On the New York Mercantile Exchange, light sweet crude futures for delivery in January inched up 0.28% on Friday to settle the week at USD97.65 a barrel by close of trade.  Earlier in the session, Nymex oil prices rallied to USD98.07 a barrel, the highest since October 29.  The January contract settled 0.19% higher on Thursday to end at USD97.38 a barrel.  Nymex oil futures were likely to find support at USD96.30 a barrel, the low from December 4 and resistance at USD98.51 a barrel, the high from October 29.  On the week, U.S. oil futures surged 5.04%, the biggest weekly gain since July. The U.S. economy added 203,000 jobs in November, above expectations for jobs growth of 180,000, the Labor Department said Friday. The unemployment rate fell to a five-year low of 7.0% from 7.3% in October.  Oil traders have long been taking cues from the monthly U.S. jobs report because it offers insight into the economic health of the world’s biggest crude-oil consumer.  The upbeat jobs report came one day after official data showed that the U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.6% in the three months to September, well above the preliminary estimate for 2.6%. An improving economy is generally correlated with increased demand for oil and fuel products like gasoline.  U.S. crude, also known as West Texas Intermediate or WTI, received a further boost amid receding concerns over rising U.S. inventories. The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported Wednesday that crude oil inventories fell by 5.6 million barrels last week to 385.8 million, the first weekly decline in 11 weeks.  Elsewhere, on the ICE Futures Exchange in London, Brent oil futures for January delivery added 0.57% on Friday to settle the week at USD111.61 a barrel. The January Brent contract gained 1.72% on the week. Read more: https://www.nasdaq.com/article/crude-oil-futures-weekly-outlook-december-9-13-cm309798#ixzz2mwdZ8IxT Oil Higher on US Economic Newslast_img read more
