Online retailers’ wild ride sums up shopping for shares in 2020

first_imgSimilar concerns sank the shares of ASOS and BooHoo and we even saw a wobble in Ocado.Kerching!It’s often said, rather crassly, that you should buy shares when there’s blood on the streets – when fear is at its height. Secondly, I think investors began to realise the scale of any lockdown – first touted, later implemented – meant that even online retailers would be impacted, either because the government wouldn’t allow them to operate warehouses or send goods out for delivery, or because rising illness and self-isolation would seriously disrupt their operations and those of their logistical partners anyway. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Online retailers’ wild ride sums up shopping for shares in 2020 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.

The whole market seems to have pitched from optimism to despair and mostly back again in just three months! Image source: Getty Images. These are huge gains to book in barely a month, especially considering how obviously favourable the environment always looked for online retail. Enter Your Email Address The fashion shop Next had to close its online operation in late March, for example, after workers protested at being asked to work in its warehouses and to return to its (shuttered) stores for stock. Investors are favouring companies that are built for self-isolation, and punishing those that require us to return to a pre-pandemic world to make profits again. Netflix is up while Cineworld has cratered. Domino’s Pizza is flying. Restaurant Group looks priced as if it might go bust. ASOS shares have almost doubled since mid-March, for instance, after the company reassured investors and secured additional funding. Of course, we’re used to riskier shares being hit harder in a bear market or defensive companies doing well when consumers’ wallets are squeezed.

Source: S&P Capital IQWhen every night is Netflix and chill nightThis same ‘lockdown trade’ is playing out in multiple sectors across the market. While there was uncertainty in the transition into lockdown, you didn’t need to be Warren Buffett to see how retailers that don’t need shops could prosper when those rival shops were shutdown.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…Bricks-and-mortar slaughterIndeed, like the $1 trillion gorilla in the room – the US giant Amazon – online shopping purist Ocado is one of the few stock market winners this year. We’ve never seen a market divided like this. For a sorry counter-example, consider the commercial property titan Landsec. Owain Bennallack | Saturday, 25th April, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. In the early stages of the crisis, online retail shares barely wobbled. Investors no doubt appreciated that social distancing isn’t much of a handicap when you’re shopping from your sofa. See all posts by Owain Bennallack This means that when it comes to picking our way through the lockdown-battered stock market, we’re all on our own. Appropriately enough… However as we rolled into March, two developments muddied this consensus. Maybe that was a catalyst for BooHoo and Ocado to climb, too. The former is up 75% since its March lows, and the latter some 50% higher. Owain owns shares in Amazon, ASOS, boohoo group, and Landsec. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended ASOS. The Motley Fool UK has recommended boohoo group, Domino’s Pizza, and Landsec. Firstly, the potential economic hit from Covid-19 dawned on us all. Pundits began to use the word recession. Customers began to worry about their jobs. You see, Covid-19 seems to have accelerated a retail evolution that was already well underway on High Streets across Britain and in malls around the world. None of that is good for retailers. Rising unemployment and fewer pounds in the average person’s pocket isn’t recipe for booming sales, virus or no virus. And while the FTSE 100 is still far from its highs and so are the share prices of many online retailers, being brave in March as the lockdown was imposed and snapping up their shares looks in hindsight like a remarkable opportunity to turn around a portfolio battered by the mayhem of 2020. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”last_img read more

Among the increasing number of houses planned on small plots of land, this is out of the ordinary in shade and size, A 20-minute train ride from downtown Tokyo, 15-minuite walk from the station. It is a long, narrow trapezoid with a lower base of 3.2m as the frontage, height of 29.3m as the depth, and upper base of 0.7m at the very end of the site. Moreover, there is a local ordinance requiring a 0.5-meter set-back of external walls from the adjacent land. Conditions are extremely tough. From the moment Atelier Tekuto had looked through the site’s situation, Atelier Tekuto organized a collaboration system consisting of the client, design, structure, construction and maker, then started off planning.

The over-ground section features skin-like external walls with added transparency letting sunlight permeate the entire building. The floor material is expanded metal letting sunlight fall deeper underground, in the attempt to deviate from the floor’s of determinacy function.

More specifically, the conventional earth retaining work using concrete was simplified into a plain assemblage of 8 mm-thick steel plates with anticorrosive, heat-insulation and waterproof treatments. This method would not only reduces cost but also ensure an extra 0.5 m to the usual working width.

The coup d’etat playbook in Venezuela

first_imgJan. 29 — We are witnessing a chain of events, a series of operations that seem to be carried out in an ordered sequence, one step after another. It all began with the breakup of talks in the Dominican Republic at the beginning of 2017. After that, the strategy against Chavismo put the electoral route aside and revealed its latest path through the White House’s announcement on Jan. 28. What happened in the intervening period is known.  What will happen from now on may partially — and in a rough way — be anticipated. At least on paper. The first conclusion is that the opposition forces are not improvising. Not when they chose Juan Guaidó as the new “hero” to be crafted in social networks.  Nor when they began the first phase of internal violence in the popular neighborhoods from Jan. 21 to 24. Nor when they engineered Guaidó’s self swearing-in.  Nor when the meeting of the Organization of American States was held on Jan. 24. Nor the recent United Nations Security Council meeting. Nor with the deliberate blows to the Venezuelan economy.From within the U.S., there is strong support for Bolivarian Venezuela, including this demonstration on Jan. 26, in solidarity at the Cuban Mission in New York.Guaidó obeys the U.S. chain of commandTheir destructive plans were clear when John Bolton, U.S. National Security Advisor, and Steven Mnuchin, U.S. Secretary of Treasury, stood before cameras at the White House Jan. 28 to announce the new assaults on Venezuela’s economy. They declared that the $7 billion belonging to Venezuela’s nationalized oil company PDVSA, now held in the U.S., will be frozen and the money from purchases made from Citgo — PDVSA’s subsidiary in the U.S. — will go to blocked accounts. In other words, [the U.S.] will rob PDVSA. Immediately, Guaidó announced that he will appoint a new delegation to Citgo. The chain of command is vertical: The “self-appointed” president will obey.The new attacks on the economy were foreseen. The difference from those that occurred in previous years is the number of sectors under attack, the magnitude of what those entail and the framework within which these attacks are developing. An accounting of the latest numbers provided publicly is as follows: $23 billion in damages, according to Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, plus $1.2 billion worth of Venezuelan gold seized in Britain, plus $7 billion robbed from PDVSA — and $11 billion that will be generated from these new attacks, says Bolton.This chain of events frames the next four steps which have already been announced: street actions on Jan. 30, a march on Feb. 2, the European Union and Britain’s formal declaration recognizing Guaidó, and the Lima Group’s meeting on Feb. 4. Involved are public steps — the international maneuvers to advance the shaping of the picture — and national steps, apparently to gain time until new and different types of violent incidents can combine with semi-public mobilizations. No media [the opposition] suspects as close to the government will be allowed near these.It doesn’t mean that every step is a U.S. triumph for the ongoing strategy. It is always necessary to ask how to simultaneously measure victories and defeats in several plans.  For example, isn’t it a defeat if the U.S. fails to achieve a majority in the U.N. Security Council? Or did they know that would not succeed?Was the sole objective to hold the meeting itself, and in a coordinated way line up all the actors the U.S. needs to take the next economic, political and military steps?Is Washington willing to move forward despite its differences with such governments as Russia and China over the newly created situations?  For example, what is the impact of the announcements on freezing Citgo’s assets when Russia holds almost half of the shares?The hypothesis indicates that [the U.S.] will advance on other levels. “We are waiting for them. We are waiting for the violent mercenaries and those who want to get into Venezuela,” said Minister of Defense Vladimir Padrino López  He said this after describing the current scenario: “This is a siege, a script. We are witnessing the same format that was applied in Libya and we are observing the very same incremental events being produced in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.”‘Humanitarian aid’: A right-wing ploy“Humanitarian aid” seems to be a central point in this plan moving forward like clockwork. Guaidó and various right-wing representatives claim they will bring the aid into the country, although they have not yet outlined how it would be done. They say it would be the turning point in case the Bolivarian National Armed Forces refuse to let it pass. In what territory do they plan to set the stage with cameras, diplomats and agencies in the front — and the paramilitaries and criminal gangs in the shadows? Will it be on the Colombian border?It is necessary to characterize the local and international actors.  In the first case, there are the right-wing elements connected to the United States, such as the Popular Will Party to which Guaidó belongs. This party has been linked to criminal scenarios since its birth. In the second case, there are the individuals in charge of Operation Venezuela: Donald Trump, John Bolton, Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, Elliot Abrams and Marco Rubio. These promoters of U.S. neoconservatism are linked to the evilest plots involving worldwide interventions, whether declared or covert.By describing the scenario, including the possible sequences — and the questions about the limits or lack of the U.S.-led advance — we can clarify the type of confrontation we are facing. The Venezuelan scenario has been uncoupled from notorious past scenarios in other countries in Latin America. It is related to such issues as Colombian paramilitarism and is seemingly part of the U.S. strategy applied in the Middle East. A mistaken analysis can lead to gross errors of judgment. The magnitude of the new factors requires updating our analytical tools. We are facing a new scenario within an unstable world, filled with conflicts, with the emergence of U.S. power and aggression trying to recover a land that has been escaping its control. Venezuela is one of the central countries that the U.S. seeks to hold under its control — or in ashes. Chavismo sees its challenge clearly and will fight back.Teruggi is an Argentine journalist and social scientist who lives in Caracas and who contributes articles to various left publications.

Experts say “crimes against freedom of expression” should have special status

first_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders welcomes yesterday’s joint declaration by four international experts calling on governments to treat “crimes against freedom of expression” as a special category under criminal law and thereby provide journalists and other news providers with better protection.The joint call was issued by the United Nations special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe representative on freedom of the media, the Organization of American States special rapporteur on freedom of expression and the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights special rapporteur on freedom of expression and access to information.It came just five days after both Frank La Rue, the UN special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression, and Christof Heyns, the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, issued separate reports calling for greater efforts to protect journalists.“These four experts have issued their joint call for crimes against freedom of expression to be assigned a special status under criminal law, with specific penalties, because they recognize the role that freedom of information plays in society, whether the information providers are professional journalists, citizen journalists or netizens,” Reporters Without Borders said.“This joint declaration also testifies to the concern these experts feel for the safety of news providers and their awareness of the urgency of the situation. It stresses that governments have an obligation to investigate these crimes, to protect the victims and ensure that they have access to justice.”Reporters Without Borders hopes that the joint declaration and the two reports will encourage state and non-state actors to adopt concrete measures to protect journalists and to combat impunity for those responsible for acts of violence against them.“These experts have paved the way,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Now it is up to governments to implement their recommendations and give them binding force as soon as possible.”A total of 29 professional journalists and at least 12 citizen journalists have been killed since the start of 2012 because of their commitment to providing news and information. Dozens of journalists have also been forced to flee abroad to escape harassment, violence, threats of arbitrary arrest or death. A total of 80 journalists fled into exile in 2011.

Police Foundation Breakfast Raises Funds for Urgently-Needed Doghouse

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Subscribe Last year, with generous support from the community, the Pasadena Police Foundation raised the funds needed to purchase a new fully-trained dual-purpose (suspect apprehension/narcotics detection) dog.These pooches don’t come cheap (roughly $30,000) nor does their mobile “dog house,” which allows them to spring into action the minute their partner uses the remote release button to call for help.This year, with demonstrations by two canine officers (be careful what’s in your wallet), the Annual Pasadena Police Foundation Breakfast on October 9th (7:30 a.m.) at Brookside Club House will kick off its campaign to provide the Police Department’s new dog with an appropriate new home (estimated cost of the SUV and amenities ($53,000).Considering these canine officers spend much of their on-duty time in the SUV that carries their “dog house,” it is essential that it is cooled/heated and generally well equipped. One of the SUV’s most important features is the remote button which allows an officer in trouble to release the dog from the vehicle so that it can join in the apprehension of a suspect.This year’s breakfast features Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez reporting on the Status of the Pasadena Police Department to be followed by a demonstration by two canine officers and their partners. A mobile Command Post will be available for viewing, and a live auction of items such as a Pasadena Police Department helicopter ride-along for two people and cash drawings are a part of the program which is open to interested community members who make reservations in advance by contacting [email protected] is a fee of $55 per person of which $34 is tax deductible.The Annual Pasadena Police Foundation Breakfast will start at 7:30 a.m. at the Brookside Clubhouse, 1133 Rosemont Avenue, Pasadena. 12 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
