Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Tom Rodgers | Monday, 26th October, 2020 | More on: AV When I’m looking for long-term FTSE 100 shares in which to invest my hard-earned cash, I’m looking for three simple things: profits, quality and a bargain price.I follow the Warren Buffett’s advice that “whether I’m buying socks or stocks, I like buying quality merchandise when it’s marked down.“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…So what does this actually mean?Good FTSE 100 shares to buyI like buying profitable companies. Especially when I’m looking to buy and hold for years.Unprofitable companies are always higher risk. Yes, they could make profits in future, but nothing is certain in life, and certainly not on stock markets!Quality, to me, means companies that make good returns on the capital they spend. I look for FTSE 100 companies that sell high-margin products. Insurance companies tend to make solid, long-term profits as customers will often stay for years. That’s why Aviva (LSE:AV) is right at the top of my list.Bargain prices appear for FTSE 100 shares when the market incorrectly undervalues a company. This happens much more often than you might think.A lot of people on stock markets are looking to make quick money. So they only look at very short-term news. By taking a much longer-term view on a company’s profits and quality, we can take advantage of bargain prices.AvivaWe need only look back a couple of years to explain just how cheap Aviva shares are today. In 2016 the Aviva P/E ratio was 28.7. So you’d pay £28.70 for every £1 of profit Aviva made. Today it’s just 4.2!In normal times I would find such a low rating troubling. But there are some seismic changes going on at Aviva and it’s on sale today at a tremendous discount.New CEO Amanda Blanc is moving to complete what predecessor Maurice Tulloch failed to do. That is, cutting debt by selling off its underperforming French arm to insurer Allianz, selling its majority stake in its Singapore business for £1.6bn and refocusing on building profits back stronger in its main UK, Irish and Canadian markets.Blanc has shown admirable desire to push the business forward.“For too long [efficient use of capital] has proven elusive,” she warned. “Meaningful change is required. We have a long road ahead and much work to do.“Adding Jim McConville and Mohit Joshi as a non-exec directors in October 2020 is one of those moves I like. Joshi is president of Indian IT giant Infosys while McConville brings years of banking experience from Lloyds.Why now?There are profits, quality and a bargain price here. I like the fact that Blanc has snapped up 324,887 shares in her own business as recently as September 2020 — a huge sign of confidence in the future direction of the company.She also made the hugely welcome move to reinstate Aviva’s dividend in August. I see today’s 3.42% yield rising back to 5% or 6% in future as Blanc’s cost-cutting and profit drives come to fruition.The Aviva share price has gained 20% since March, a steady but not spectacular rise. So now could be a solid time to buy-in to grab value.Remember Warren Buffett’s mantra that “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” His point is that the market can either incorrectly undervalue a company or vastly overvalue it. Aviva looks undervalued to me and that’s why I’d buy today.center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceText description provided by the architects. This house is located in the historic center of Chihuahua City, in north-central Mexico. This district displays a deteriorated urban fabric due to the demolition of a great number of old buildings being replaced by surface parking lots. The population has migrated to the fringes leaving an empty housing stock. The project was aware of the importance of both the restoration and integration of architectures while demonstrating the possibilities of contemporary housing in the urban center.Save this picture!Top Floor Plan+ 40The old building is a two story structure built in the early twentieth century in a 40 square meter footprint. The construction system includes adobe walls, wood beams, a limestone façade, and an earthen roof. The project and construction began in 2010 working with an office program. Save this picture!© Rafael GamoRestoration started by eliminating all of the non-original additions and rebuilding the earthen roof. The frontal façade was stabilized since it was detaching from the main structure. The neighboring 300 square meter property was added to the program while during this first construction stage. Therefore the program changed from office to a house.Save this picture!Diagrama GeneralThe old and new construction was articulated by a vertical stair cube. The stair provides access to the two stories and the rooftop terrace where views of downtown Chihuahua can be enjoyed. Access from the street happens in between the old and new constructions in a sequence that first goes through a patio-zaguan before penetrating to the interior. This access patio allows for additional light and ventilation for the old building while allowing for the concentration of rainwater collected from the rooftops.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoOnce through the threshold in the ground floor one can access a painting studio in the old building or the social área in the new building. The latter is a double height space composed of the living room and the kitchen. Both areas are divided by a bar and joined in the exterior by a patio. The garage can be added to the expansion of the social areas spilling to the exterior.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe second story contains the family room in the old building while the new construction has two bedrooms separated by a library-bridge. One bedroom is related to the street in the front and the other looks to the backyard. The third and top level is a rooftop terrace with a steel plaque grill. The floor is a ceramic tile which allows the earthen roof to breathe out excess moisture. Plant pots and a light-well complete the arrangement with patio furniture.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe backyard has hardscape and softscape areas. The grasses, shrubs, and trees are a selection of native plants. Concrete modular pavers allow for the absorption of rainwater in order to help support the plants. In the back of the property there is a water fountain framed by recovered timber from the construction’s scaffolding. Other recovered materials include the original limestone flooring, some of which was reinstalled while another part was crushed and used as ground cover to reduce the loss of moisture.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoProject gallerySee allShow lessBjarke Ingels: “Denmark Has Become an Entire Country Made Out of LEGO®”VideosMousai Hotel / Estudio M+NSelected Projects Share Mexico ArchDaily Area:  300 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: LABorstudio Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” House on 2nd Street (C2a) / LABorstudio CopyAbout this officeLABorstudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionChihuahuaMexicoPublished on June 30, 2015Cite: “House on 2nd Street (C2a) / LABorstudio” [Casa Calle Segunda (C2a) / LABorstudio] 30 Jun 2015.

Cancel Puerto Rico’s debt!

first_imgMembers and supporters of the Philadelphia-Camden Boricua Committee demonstrated on Dec. 2 in front of the UBS Financial Services office in Philadelphia Center City. The protest was part of a national appeal by the New York Call to Action on Puerto Rico to demand the cancellation of Puerto Rico’s debt and expose the criminal role of the banks and financial institutions that impose brutal austerity measures on the residents of the island. That same day in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on Puerto Rico’s financial crisis. Puerto Rican elected officials testified, requesting approval of a law providing for Puerto Rico’s right to declare bankruptcy, among other demands. The action in New York City was held on Wall Street, and there were similar protests in Puerto Rico.WW photo: Joseph PietteFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Attacked by racists, he gets hero’s welcome back home

first_imgSuffolk, Va. — A multinational crowd of over 100 people came together here on Aug. 19 outside City Hall to support their friend, Deandre Harris, who had stood up for justice in Charlottesville, Va.Harris, a 20-year-old Black man from Suffolk, had joined the Charlottesville event against the Klan and Nazis on Aug. 14 “to voice my opinion.”He was physically attacked in a parking garage beside a police station by a group of white supremacists who threatened his life, while shouting vicious racist language. They have not been arrested. He later wrote: “I was chased and beat with metal poles. I was knocked down unconscious repeatedly. Every time I went to stand up I was knocked down.”Harris suffered a concussion and broken arm and needed eight staples in his head. He also has a chipped tooth, along with many abrasions and lacerations.Among those at the Suffolk rally were many ministers from the community and six people from nearby Norfolk who also rallied against white supremacy in Charlottesville. Some wore Black Lives Matter T-shirts. They attended a similar event in Norfolk the previous day.Harris’ mother spoke briefly. Along with others, she wore a T-shirt reading “Justice for Dre.” His GoFundMe page has raised over $100,000 to help with his medical costs, showing enormous community support for the heroes who went to Charlottesville.Quoting the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Pastor Da ‘Qwone D. Hill said, “It’s great how we have come together … and stand stronger against divisiveness and racism.” Harris’ friend Imari Griffin, 25, attended the same high school and felt compelled to build support for him. She planned the rally, which was covered by local television and newspapers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Parliament adopts new media law that is still too repressive

They have been eliminated in one place but they have reappeared in another.”The press freedom organisation added: “If this law is promulgated by the president and goes into effect, it will leave a permanent threat hanging over Chad’s journalists and news media. What the government has given with one hand, it has taken away with the other.”Adopted by 82 votes for, 2 against and 11 abstentions, the new law suppresses its predecessor’s provisions for prison sentences for insults and defamation and the crime of insulting the president, but it introduces sentences of 6 to 12 months in prison, fines of 100,000 to 1 million CFA francs (150 to 1,500 euros) and a publication ban of up to six months for inciting racial or ethnic hatred and “condoning violence.”“This last provision is insufficiently clear and leaves room for broad interpretation that can be used against journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said.Michaël Didama, the chairman of the Association of Privately-Owned Press Publishers, told Reporters Without Borders: “We have taken one step forward and three steps back. We are very concerned about article 47 and the subsequent articles – on inciting racial or ethnic hatred or condoning violence – because they could send us to prison.”Describing the new law as “balanced,” government spokesman and communication minister Kedalla Younous Hamid said: “It decriminalises press offences while making journalists responsible. That is a step forward for democracy.” But Ndjamena Bi-Hebdo editor Jean-Claude Nekim insisted: “The introduction of the new penalty of publication bans for newspapers is a death sentence for the press.”The new law was rejected by the national assembly on first reading in June.
