Forget a Cash ISA! I’d aim to make £1m with these 2 ‘dirt-cheap’ FTSE 100 stocks

first_img Stock markets have been extremely volatile this year. As a result, a number of FTSE 100 stocks are trading at dirt-cheap prices. Such stocks offer investors the chance of making a million in the long run.The 0.9% interest rate on the top easy-access Cash ISA is never going to make you rich. However, investing in blue-chip FTSE 100 stocks at knockdown prices has the potential to do so. Such stocks could deliver impressive long-term growth in capital and income. So, I’d forget a Cash ISA. Instead, I’d buy cheap top-tier stocks, like these two, for the long term.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…Cheap FTSE 100 stocks #1The share price of defence giant BAE Systems (LSE: BA) was at a 52-week high of 669p just before the market crash. It’s currently 534p — a 20% discount. I’m confident the share price will return to, and exceed, its previous high, in due course.Countries around the world continue to spend billions on defence. I can’t see this changing in the coming decades. BAE is a trusted partner of major western governments. These strong customer relationships, as well as the company’s immense technical know-how, give it every opportunity of being a long-term beneficiary of defence spending.Resilience in the time of coronavirusBAE reported a “robust performance” in its half-year results last month. It hasn’t been entirely immune to Covid-19 disruption, but the relative resilience of the business is reflected in management’s full-year guidance.It said it expects underlying earnings per share (EPS) to be a mid-single digit percentage lower than last year’s 45.8p. Assuming the decline is 5%, we’d be looking at 43.5p. This gives a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12.3 at the current share price. I believe this is a dirt-cheap rating for a high-quality business with reliable cash flows and long-term growth prospects.Just for good measure, a trailing dividend of 23.2p gives a running yield of 4.3%. This knocks spots off 0.9% from a Cash ISA. Furthermore, I’m confident the dividend is secure and can be increased over time.Cheap FTSE 100 stocks #2The share price of luxury fashion house Burberry (LSE: BRBY) has fallen more heavily than BAE’s. Currently 1,435p, it’s at a 38% discount to its 52-week high of 2,329p.Burberry’s business has been more severely impacted by Covid-19. Also, US-China trade tensions and friction between the UK and China over Hong Kong are probably weighing on investor sentiment. This is because China is a key market for Burberry.However, I’ve no doubt the long-term story of rising wealth in Asia remains intact. And that Burberry is attractively positioned to be a beneficiary of growing demand for upmarket brands in the coming decades.Rare and exceptionally valuableIn a trading update last month, the company said it’s seen progressive month-on-month improvement as stores have reopened. However, management cautioned: “We expect it will take time to return to pre-crisis levels.”Pre-crisis levels produced EPS of 78.9p last year. I’m confident the business can get back to, and exceed, that figure in the future. At the current share price, and on 78.9p EPS, the P/E is 18.2. This is dirt-cheap for a rare and exceptionally valuable global luxury brand.Looking beyond the Covid-19 earnings hit and a temporary suspension of the dividend, I believe Burberry is another knockdown FTSE 100 stock that could help investors make a million in the long run.

This is what I’d do now Royston Wild | Wednesday, 31st March, 2021 It’s been a tough first day for Deliveroo (LSE: ROO) and its share price. On Wednesday the food delivery firm finally started trading as a member of the London Stock Exchange. It’s hard to see how the company could have got off to a worse start.This isn’t just because Deliveroo had to set its IPO price at £3.90 per share. This is at the lowest point of a range which went as high as £4.60. And it’s a move which reduced the company’s value by a whopping £1.2bn.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…It’s because the Deliveroo share price absolutely tanked from that offer price when conditional trading began. It fell as much as 30% before paring losses. Still, at £2.85 per share, it remains 27% lower than that offer price.Deliveroo’s share price plummetsBuying a company when it first lists its shares is always risky business. The sort of volatility that the Deliveroo share price has witnessed today can be common. Though that’s not to say that IPO choppiness doesn’t sometimes work in the favour of UK share investors. I recall that the Royal Mail share price absolutely rocketed when its shares first started trading in London back in 2013.It’s perhaps no surprise to some that the Deliveroo share price has belly flopped on its debut, though. Several fund managers said that they would shun the takeaway titan over concerns about how it treats its workers. Those running the EdenTree Sustainable and Responsible UK Equity Fund, for example, claimed that “the Deliveroo business model is best characterised as a race to the bottom with employees in the main treated as disposable assets.” It sunk the knife in further by claiming that “[this] is the very antithesis of a sustainable business model.”Said concerns were behind Deliveroo’s reason to put its offer price at the lower end of the range. But chatter concerning worker rights isn’t the only thing to have rained on Deliveroo’s IPO. Traders are also considering whether the takeaway market has already peaked during Covid-19 lockdowns.Finally, chatterings that the Deliveroo share price remained overvalued despite the company setting its offer price at £3.90 has also prompted the collapse. As analyst Sophie Lund-Yates of Hargreaves Lansdown says: “a market cap of £7.6bn means the company’s worth 6.4 times last year’s revenue, which is some way above rival Just Eat’s 4.8 times.”Should I buy this UK share?As I said, buying a UK share when it first begins trading can be risky business. But is now a good time to buy Deliveroo following today’s share price plunge? I’m bullish on the UK takeaway market and think it should continue to grow strongly over the medium to long term following a sharp dip in 2021. In addition to this, I like the fact that Deliveroo could choose to turbocharge expansion using the proceeds of its IPO.That said, I fear that the Deliveroo share price still looks too expensive despite today’s fall. The firm operates in a highly-competitive area, and one in which the issue over workers rights is becoming an ever-hotter potato, which makes this particular UK share too risky in my opinion. I’d much rather buy other UK shares right now. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Hargreaves Lansdown and Just Eat Takeaway.com N.V.

Autumn Internationals Scotland v South Africa preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “South Africa have always had a smart kicking game with an excellent chase but what we’ve seen over the past few months is an ambition to move the ball from counter attack and a push to get their forwards passing the ball more.“Our defence will have to be strong to nullify this ambitious attacking game plan.”Related: Rassie Erasmus coaches ‘Owen Farrell tackle’South Africa’s Rassie Erasmus said: “We know we are going to face well-coached, fit, energetic team that is good in their systems. They are maybe not the biggest team in the world but what they lack in size they make up for with intensity, speed and a great system.“We know their record at home, smashing teams. They put 50 points on Australia, they beat England proper, they beat Argentina well on the road. We know what are in for. It is going to be a tough game.”Any interesting statistics?Scotland have only scored one try against South Africa in their previous three meetings.Scotland have only lost at home once in the last ten matches there – losing by five points to New Zealand in 2017.Rassie Erasmus has a 50% win ratio with South Africa.The last time these two met at Murrayfield, Scotland did not score a single point.The last Scotland player to score a try against South Africa was Tommy Seymour, who scored a hat-trick last weekend.Gregor Townsend beat South Africa three times as a player – twice on the 1997 Lions tour, and once with Scotland in 2002.Familiar subject: Romain Poite refereed South Africa in JuneWhat time does it kick off and is it on TV?Scotland v South Africa, Saturday 17 November, MurrayfieldThe match in Edinburgh kicks off at 5.20pm and is live on BBC2 as well as BBC Radio Scotland.French referee Romain Poite will be in charge of proceedings, with Ben O’Keeffe of New Zealand and Frank Murphy of Ireland as his assistants. Kiwi Ben Skeen is the TMO.What are the line-ups?Scotland: Stuart Hogg; Tommy Seymour, Huw Jones, Pete Horne, Sean Maitland; Finn Russell, Greig Laidlaw (captain); Gordon Reid, Stuart McInally, Willem Nel, Ben Toolis, Jonny Gray, Sam Skinner, Hamish Watson, Ryan Wilson.Replacements: Fraser Brown, Allan Dell, Simon Berghan, Josh Strauss, Jamie Ritchie, Ali Price, Adam Hastings, Chris Harris.South Africa:Willie le Roux; Sbu Nkosi, Jesse Kriel, Damian de Allende, Aphiwe Dyantyi; Handré Pollard, Embrose Papier; Steven Kitshoff, Malcolm Marx, Frans Malherbe, RG Snyman, Franco Mostert, Siya Kolisi (captain), Pieter-Steph du Toit, Duane Vermeulen. Autumn Internationals Scotland v South Africa previewThere has been a lot of mutual respect flying between the Scots and Boks this week as South Africa head to Murrayfield for the first time since 2013 – the pair last met in Newcastle in 2015.Both teams have had moments to savour and reason to cringe so far this November. Scotland stumbled once again in Cardiff against Wales, but registered a big win against Fiji at home. South Africa, meanwhile have lost by a squeak against England and then fallen from the jaws of defeat against France to take a don’t-blink-or-you’ll-miss-it victory.With both teams right beside each other in the World Rugby Rankings (Scotland are sixth with the Springboks in fifth), and with Scotland winning nine of their last ten Tests at home, South Africa have put out as robust a squad as they can muster. Will Gregor Townsend’s charges play, as Boks boss Rassie Erasmus describes, with a Super Rugby-style?Although, amazingly, there is no official trophy or trinket to hand to the winner of this fixture, it feels like a November-defining weekend for both sides.Big win: Scotland celebrating their victory over Fiji last weekWhat’s the big team news?Townsend has changed six from the team that defeated Fiji. Centre Huw Jones returns to the fray to partner auxiliary playmaker Pete Horne. In the pack, Gordon Reid comes in at loosehead, vice-captain and hooker Stuart McInally is reinstated while work-horses Jonny Gray, Ben Toolis and Hamish Watson slide into the back five of the scrum.There is a sense of the familiar with Scotland’s half-backs as France-based pair Finn Russell and Greig Laidlaw settle in as half-backs. But Adam Hastings is waiting in the wings should the adventurous Glasgow Warriors fly-half be called upon to add a running threat.South Africa have made just two changes with lock RG Snyman in for the imposing Eben Etzebeth and scrum-half Embrose Papier handed a start with Faf de Klerk returning to Sale Sharks.With Snyman called in and Warren Whiteley struggling with a calf complaint, Pieter-Steph du Toit shifts from lock to back row. This in turn shunts Duane Vermuelen back to No 8.Man of the hour: hooker Bongi Mbonambi scored late to down France last weekWhat have the coaches said?Gregor Townsend said: “Their traditional strength has always been their physicality and this remains a key point of difference for them. We expect them to be confrontational and powerful in their ball carrying, their defence and also at set-piece time. It will be a great challenge for our forward pack in particular. All you need to know about Scotland’s upcoming showdown with the Springboks this weekend.center_img Last time they met: Tommy Seymour scored against the Boks at RWC2015 Replacements:Bongi Mbonambi, Thomas du Toit, Vincent Koch, Lood de Jager, Francois Louw, Ivan van Zyl, Elton Jantjies, Cheslin Kolbe.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Tuinstede / SNITKER/BORST/ARCHITECTEN/

first_img The Netherlands Projects “COPY” “COPY” Photographs:  Roos Aldershoff  Tuinstede is the last of three new blocks that have been built in the Noordstrook, north of Delflandplein in the Amsterdam district New West. The urban design for the Noordstrook is made by Snitker/Borst Architects. In order to increase the density of the neighbourhood the existing modernist open strip building plan will be replaced by three urban closed blocks with large communal courtyards. One of the streets will remain without cars and will be arranged as a playground for children. The urban design will be executed in two phases. Recently the first phase was finished. In a second phase the U-shaped blocks will be completed to closed blocks. The three blocks are designed by Dick van Gameren, ANA and Snitker/Borst Architects, respectively.Save this picture!© Roos Aldershoff The architecture of Tuinstede matches with the modernist architecture of the Western Garden Cities of Amsterdam, with generous glass façades and large apartments with flexible 8,1 meter wide floor plans. The block encloses a collective garden with birch trees. In order to maximize the open ground in the garden, the car park is placed partly under the housing block. A zone with terraces forms a transitional zone between the individual homes and the courtyard’s communal space. Two large gates in the street façades connect the collective garden and the public street. The block has three floors with apartments above double-storey maisonettes on ground floor.Save this picture!© Roos Aldershoff The maisonettes on ground floor are provided with two terraces: one terrace on the street side and a second terrace on the court yard side, on top of the deck of the car park. The difference in height between street level and the deck of the car park is used to make a spacious split level house with high ceilings. De ceiling height of the dining room on street side is 3,3 meter and the ceiling height of the living room on the court yard side is 4,2 meter. Three bedrooms are located on street side above the dining room and the entrance.Save this picture!© Roos Aldershoff Project gallerySee allShow lessUniversity of Applied Arts Extension Proposal / Wolfgang TschapellerArticles2012 TED Prize Winner: The City 2.0’s Wish has been Revealed!ArticlesProject locationAddress:Ámsterdam, Países BajosLocation to be used only as a reference.

The clients required a multifunctional guesthouse where family and friends could stay over for a short vacation and the owners could also use it as a separate room to work or for the children to play. One bedroom with double and single bed and a sleeping couch sufficed, the bathroom needed to be comfortable but not too large. As the guesthouse is close to the residents’ house they wanted a soundproof barrier and enough privacy for both residents and guests.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Nelson KonA large stone that was present on site was preferably integrated into the house. The building is made by the cooperants of the social building project of Camburi. The idea of this social building project was to provide training and job-development for a deprived community. After the community center, commissions were sought outside of the village of Camburi in order to have economic return for the cooperants, of which this guesthouse is an example.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe location of the guesthouse is ‘litoral norte’ in Southeast Brazil, with climatic conditions being tropical warm and humid. The guesthouse is less protected by surrounding structures; wind loads are hence higher, enlarging the need for extra roof weight.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThis is achieved by a green roof. As the project location was remote from the town center and everything had to be carried to the site by carriers, the principal idea was to use as little construction material as needed by re-using materials and applying natural materials extracted from the site. The 6.3m long rammed earth wall serves as noise barrier and is made with locally excavated red earth. As the terrain lies on a slope, levelling of the terrain was required thereby delivering base material without extra energy needed.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe formwork used for the rammed earth was later on applied in the roof structure. The beams holding the framework together became the ring beam. The green roof was finished with locally found black earth and plants. The large granite rock that was present on the left-side of the terrain was integrated into the bedroom forming half of the wall. Beyond an existing palm tree was cut out of the roof to maintain it.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Axo 01Save this picture!© Nelson KonBamboo culms were used to form the roof structure. To ensure privacy large windows were positioned opening to the back and right side of the building, the front was maintained relatively closed. Also, the large rammed earth wall extending for another 1.70m outside the guesthouse offers a small private and covered patio. Because of its thermic inertia, the green roof marks a difference in low and high-pressure areas in and around the construction encouraging ventilation. The small windows in the front provide cross-ventilation.Save this picture!© Nelson KonIn every room windows can be opened up to ensure ventilation but can also be closed whenever it is colder outside. Screens are foreseen so mosquitos cannot enter when sleeping with the windows open. The roof has a 1.10m eave to the front and a 2m ‘free-hanging’ eave to the right side to protect the walls and bamboo structure.Save this picture!© Nelson Kon As stated, the terrain being situated on a slope needed to be excavated in order to obtain an equal ground level. Running rainwater from the mountain needed to be deviated through a 50cm broad canal behind the house, which later was finished off with a wooden ‘walkway/deck`. This was absolutely necessary to avoid water from entering during heavy rainfall.Save this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessXinghan Theatrical Platform / DUS StudioSelected ProjectsCosta Nova Social and Cultural Center / ARX PortugalSelected Projects Share 2017 Photographs:  Nelson Kon “COPY” Projects “COPY” Photographs Sven Mouton CopyAbout this officeCRU!

IT consultancy offers carbon zero computers to charity sector

For example, the company recently completed a project in which the life of the PCs in a 150-computer network were extended by several years, generating a large saving for the organisation and the environment.Where new PCs are required, appiChar will be making them CarbonZero for their first year of their life at no extra charge. appiChar Director, Ian Ryder, said: “Organisations of all sizes have to think seriously about their environmental impacts and take positive action to mitigate them where they can. Most of the energy used in this country is still created by burning fossil fuels and the subsequent CO2 being released has now been proven to be helping to warm the planet. “We hope that by offering this service to our customers we are helping to raise awareness of the issues while at the same taking back some of the CO2 we and our customers are responsible for.” Tagged with: Technology AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  16 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
