A near-8% stock yield (and some ETFs) I’d rather buy for March than this 9% yield

Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I recently explained why Sylvania Platinum could be a terrific stock to buy for March. With coronavirus fears spreading and Brexit-related tension also returning, having exposure to safe-haven assets is a great way of protecting your wealth.Buying up producers of precious metals is a great way to do this, though I understand why some investors might be minded to stay away from Sylvania, given its recent production problems.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…These investors might be happy to wave goodbye to the mining giant’s bulky dividend (close to 8%) and just benefit from rising platinum group metal (PGM) prices instead. And a great way to do this is by buying exchange-traded products (ETFs) that are backed by the physical metal.Buying Sprott Physical Platinum & Palladium Trust, or the Xtrackers Physical Rhodium ETC are a couple of ways to do this.Motoring aheadIt’d be a mistake to think PGM-backed investment vehicles are the only great ways to protect yourself in tough times like these. These metals have risen between 100% and 500% in value during the past year, not only on a range of geopolitical and macroeconomic concerns (Brexit, US-Chinese trade wars, flagging eurozone economies). They’ve also boomed because of soaring demand from industrial clients.More specifically, demand from the automotive sector is ballooning owing to their critical role in catalyst converters. PGMs are built in to reduce emissions and, thanks to growing green legislation (laws that demand more and more loadings of the metals in such components), consumption from the carmakers is growing.Those aforementioned ETFs (like Sylvania) aren’t just great buys on strong investment and industrial demand though. Supply shortages in the production heartland of South Africa — issues that have certainly bashed Sylvania Platinum of late — threaten to keep PGM prices well supported too. According to Johnson Matthey, platinum supply could fall below 6m ounces for the first time since 2014 this year. It also expects deficits in the rhodium and palladium markets to worsen.PGMs vs the iron giantI’d certainly rather buy shares in Sylvania Platinum, or indeed one of those ETFs, than buy into Ferrexpo (LSE: FXPO).Like the aforementioned PGM producer, this FTSE 250 commodities giant carries a forward yield of around 8%. In fact its 8.3% yield beats Sylvania’s by around half a percentage point. I wouldn’t buy it today though, on long-running fears concerning growing supply in the iron ore market.The Ukranian miner’s share price has tracked values of the steelmaking ingredient lower in recent sessions. Iron ore has dropped on concerns over how the coronavirus outbreak will smack demand in the immediate term. But I’m also worried about the swathes of new supply scheduled to hit the market in the new decade. A number of new mega-mines are set to start up, and project expansions due for completion all over the globe.Reflecting these pressures, City analysts expect Ferrexpo’s earnings to drop 44% in 2020 and 25% next year. So forget about that big yield and the company’s low forward P/E multiple of 4.2 times, I think this is a share to avoid at all costs.

The easyJet share price rise is falling back. Is this a chance to buy?

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 18th May, 2021 | More on: EZJ RYA The easyJet share price rise is falling back. Is this a chance to buy? As we’ve looked forward to the next phase of lockdown easing for the past few months, easyJet (LSE: EZJ) has been gaining. The budget airline’s share price had been rising gradually from the beginning of the year.But now we’ve actually moved into the next phase of opening up, it’s fallen back a bit. After reaching a high of 1,095p on 7 May, the shares have shed 10% and ended Monday at 986p.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…We’re looking at a fall of only 4% for easyJet over the past two years, so didn’t the pandemic have much of an effect then? Well, yes it did. And easyJet shares fell nearly 70% in the first month-or-so of the crash. Buy they had been soaring in the first few months of 2020, so much of the fall was just giving up those gains. Still, easyJet has recovered from the pandemic crash very strongly.Looking back over five years, its share price is down 33%. And it’s been very volatile over that period too. To me, that tells me not to invest in airlines — and I think easyJet is one of the best around. By comparison, International Consolidated Airlines is down 62% over the same five years.Beating the easyJet share priceAnd as for Ryanair Holdings (LSE: RYA), well… oh, it’s up 26%. And 26% over five years is a decent return. Hmm, let’s look back further. Over the past decade, the easyJet share price has risen 125%, ahead of the Footsie. But Ryanair has beaten it hands down with a 390% climb.So have I misjudged airlines? In particular, have I misjudged Ryanair? And why do I keep getting drawn to a sector that I keep thinking I should never invest in?It’s partly because I’ve flown with both these budget airlines a few times. As a customer, I like easyJet, and I don’t like Ryanair. When I fly with the former, I just turn up and go. But with the latter, there always seems to be an extra hoop to jump through to avoid paying some extra charge or other. And Ryanair consistently comes bottom of customer satisfaction surveys.Ryanair share price strengthSo why has the Ryanair share price been convincingly beating the easyJet share price? I’d always fly with easyJet, given the choice, and I think that’s the nub of it. Due to the way routes and landing slots are managed, I don’t think I’ve ever had a direct choice between one or the other. Either one flies there, or the other does.And when we have mini-monopolies over routes, maybe the penny-pinching, poor customer service, business model is superior. I mean, what is there to lose? So, will I finally turn and invest in one of these airlines? I keep thinking maybe I will, and maybe my aversion to airline shares is losing me some potential profits.But then I remember that airlines are hostages to fuel prices, and offer little in the way of competitive choice other than price (at least, where there’s competition on routes).So no, the weakening easyJet share price still doesn’t tempt me, and nor does the strong Ryanair share price.

Thomas/Washington National Cathedral[Episcopal News Service] With a combination of military precision, Episcopal Church liturgy and fond, sometimes humorous, remembrances from his family and friends, the United States on Dec. 5 formally bid farewell to former President George H.W. Bush.“When death comes, as it does to us all, life is changed, not ended,” the Rev. Russell Levenson Jr., rector of Bush’s Houston congregation, said during his state funeral sermon. “The way we live our lives, the decisions we make, the service we render matter. They matter to our fellow human beings, to this world that God has given us, and they matter to God. Few people had understood this as well or lived their lives as accordingly as President George Herbert Walker Bush.“Now hear what I said: lived it. Not earned it or strived to achieve it. It was as natural to him as breathing is to each of us.”Recalling Barbara Bush’s frequent comment to him of “good sermon, too long,” Levenson preached for just more than 12 minutes during the service at Washington National Cathedral, which ran nearly two and a half hours.The service, which can be viewed here, drew a capacity, invitation-only crowd of nearly 3,000 people, including family members, all five living U.S. presidents, senators, representatives, Supreme Court justices, Trump administration officials, diplomats and foreign dignitaries, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Britain’s Prince Charles.President George H.W. Bush’s casket stands in the crossing of Washington National Cathedral during his Dec. 5 funeral. Photo: US Army Military District of WashingtonIt was the fourth presidential funeral held at the cathedral. The previous three state funerals at the cathedral were President Dwight Eisenhower in 1969, President Ronald Reagan in 2004 and President Gerald Ford in 2007. Bush gave eulogies at Reagan’s and Ford’s funerals at the cathedral. President Woodrow Wilson is entombed at the cathedral, but his 1924 burial service was not a state funeral.The last funeral at Washington National Cathedral to approach such significance was the service for U.S. Sen. John McCain on Sept. 1. But a state funeral is an honor reserved for presidents, part of the series of tributes coordinated by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington.Bush’s casket arrived by hearse at the cathedral just before 11 a.m., accompanied by the Bush family. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Washington Bishop Mariann Budde, the cathedral’s Dean Randy Hollerith and Levenson, of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, waited on the cathedral’s steps with the Rev. Rosemarie Logan Duncan, the cathedral’s canon for worship.The military pallbearers slowly and precisely carried the casket up the steps to where Curry and Budde recited the traditional “reception of the body” prayers. “With faith in Jesus Christ, we receive the body of our brother George for burial,” Curry said at the door.The Bush family was escorted into the church and, at the front pew, the president’s son, former President George W. Bush, greeted President Donald Trump and former Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and their wives, who sat together in the front pew across the aisle from the Bush family.A sweet moment on a sad day.

Hollerith and Levenson recited the anthems from the Book of Common Prayer’s Burial Office. The order of the service is here.Members of the U.S. armed forces depart the crossing after having borne President George H.W. Bush into Washington National Cathedral. Photo: Danielle E. Thomas/Washington National CathedralDuring the service, four eulogists, George W. Bush, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney (whose term overlapped Bush’s), former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson of Wyoming and Bush’s biographer Jon Meacham, remembered the elder Bush.Meacham began the tributes, telling the congregation that Bush was “an imperfect man” who “left us a more perfect union.” Bush, Meacham said, knew that politics could not be completely pure if you wanted to win, and you had to win if you wanted to lead.Meacham said Bush believed there was a reason he had been spared death during a World War II bombing raid in the Pacific, during which his crewmates died, and he spent the next 74 years of his life in service to that belief.“His heart was steadfast. His life code, as he said, was, ‘Tell the truth. Don’t blame people. Be strong. Do your best. Try hard. Forgive. Stay the course,’” Meacham recalled. “That was and is the most American of creeds.”Meacham said Bush’s sometimes-mocked “Thousand Points of Light” and Abraham Lincoln’s appeal to the “better angels of our nature” are “companion verses in America’s national hymn.”Both presidents, Meacham said, called on Americans to “choose the right over the convenient, to hope rather than to fear and to heed not our worst impulses but our best instincts.”Historian Jon Meacham: George H.W. Bush’s life code was “tell the truth. Don’t blame people. Be strong. Do your best. Try hard. Forgive. Stay the course…That was, and is, the most American of creeds.” https://t.co/B3hZufXKHW #Remembering41 pic.twitter.com/pFcP2PNnUB— ABC News (@ABC) December 5, 2018Mulroney, standing at a podium very near Trump, praised Bush’s efforts to preserve and strengthen the North Atlantic Treaty Organization after the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain. He also praised Bush’s work to achieve the original NAFTA agreement, which he said had been “modernized and improved by recent administrations.” Trump has been critical of both NATO and NAFTA and recently announced he would withdraw from the latter, apparently in an effort to force Congress to approve a new version of the trade pact with Canada and Mexico.“Fifty or 100 years from now, as historians review the accomplishments and the context of all who have served as president, I believe it will be said that in the life of this country, the United States — which is, in my judgment, the greatest democratic republic that God has ever placed on the face of this earth — I believe it will be said that no occupant of the Oval Office was more courageous, more principled and more honorable than George Herbert Walker Bush,” Mulroney said.During Simpson’s folksy and humorous eulogy, he recalled a time when he said he had fallen from Washington’s A list to what he called the Z list because of his political choices. Bush invited him and his wife to join the Bushes for a weekend. The four had a highly visible departure from the White House. Simpson remembered Bush saying his staff told him not to issue the invitation, but he overruled them, citing friendship over politics.Bush never hated anyone, Simpson said, recalling that both men had strong mothers who taught them that “hatred corrodes the container it is carried in.”Bush understood the choices that leaders had to make, the former senator said. Bush was once presented with a bipartisan bill on the budget process, health care, Social Security solvency and other policy issues. To fund the bill, taxes would have to be increased and that would require the president to go against his well-known promise of “Read my lips: No new taxes.” The bill passed in the Senate, but Bush’s fellow Republicans in the House defeated it and, Simpson suggested, Bush’s willingness to break his no-taxes vow for the sake of the bill led to his failure to be elected to a second term.Simpson said Bush told him that when faced with tough choices, he chose “the country that I fought for,” rather than his party or his legacy.“Those who travel the high road of humility in Washington, D.C., are not bothered by heavy traffic,” Simpson said.Briefed in 2011 about his funeral and lying in state, the 41st President asked with typical humility, “Do you think anyone will come?” Tonight, people are waiting hours to pay their respects.

Bush said his father almost died of a staph infection during his teenage years. That and his World War II experience “made him cherish the gift of life, and he vowed to live every day to the fullest,” the 43rd president said of his father, the 41st.“To his very last days, dad’s life was instructive,” Bush said. “As he aged, he taught us how to grow with dignity, humor and kindness, and when the good Lord finally called, how to meet him with courage and with the joy of the promise of what lies ahead.”Bush said his father “taught us that public service is noble and necessary, that one can serve with integrity and hold true to the important values, like faith and family.“He strongly believed that it was important to give back to the community and country in which one lived. He recognized that serving others enriched the giver’s soul.”Bush said he learned years later about how his parents’ faith sustained them when his sister, Robin, was dying of leukemia at age 3. “Dad always believed that one day he would hug his precious Robin again,” he said.Bush began to cry as he ended his reflection, saying, “And in our grief, let us smile, knowing that dad is hugging Robin and holding mom’s hand again.”Former President George W.

Levenson said he had the sense of Jesus’ service on Maundy Thursday, washing his friends’ feet.Later, all those who were with Bush knelt and placed their hands on the president and prayed “and then we were silent for a full long measure as this man who changed all of our lives, who changed our nation, who changed our world, left this life for the next,” he said.“It was a beautiful end; it was a beautiful beginning.”The Rev. Dr. Russell Levenson Jr. recalls the words of President George H. W. Bush as the last stone was placed on this Cathedral. “Without faith, we are stained glass windows in the dark.” #GeorgeHWBushFuneral— National Cathedral (@WNCathedral) December 5, 2018The funeral then continued in the traditional structure of the Burial Office, and after Curry, Budde, Hollerith and Levenson performed the commendation, the military pomp began once again. The pallbearers moved into place and lifted Bush’s casket as the organ began to play the hymn “For all the saints.” The sharp sounds of military commands could be heard over the music as the clergy led the casket from the church.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, visible in the foreground to the right of the flag, and the Rev.

The former president will lie in repose at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church until 6 a.m. Dec. 6. Another memorial service will be held at the church later that morning.Bush will then travel by train and then by motorcade to the George H.W.

The project was conceived as a weekend retreat from Mexico City´s busy lifestyle and it includes 9 town houses and some amenities that provide an almost hotel-like experience. The overall footage of the project is 2,433.00 sq. mts. and each of the town houses range between 168.00 and 251.00 sq. mts. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealWhen confronted with such a beautiful and restricted context, we could do nothing but respect it, trying to bring the most out of it by handling the physical aspects of the project with care. Most of this aspects were given to us as regulations by the local authority: the materials involved, the heights, the relationship with other buildings, the general layout, sizes and materials of doors, windows, etc. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealFrom the very early stages of design, we tried to make a strong connection with the site by responding to its topography, to the existing vegetation, to the views of the lake, to our neighboring buildings, to the width of the streets, etc. Also we tried to make a more conceptual connection by incorporating the flavor of the rich natural and rural landscape surrounding Valle de Bravo. That´s why we decided to incorporate long trenches all along the project and fill them with natural river stones and vegetation.Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealWe sought out for the spirit and aspirations of the place, trying to bring them to their next stage of evolution, where the new structure respectfully talks about the past, is firmly rooted in the present and gives a sense of direction for the future. Maybe that´s why this project constantly tries to be physically anchored to the ground and at the same time tries to float and fly away in the sky. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealThe main spatial configuration of the project consists on placing volumes along the two streets that confine the site (which is a local regulation), and by placing the houses in an L shape. By this, we could take advantage of the orientation and the views, and at the same time we were able to generate a pool area (in the sense of a main patio), just like in the traditional houses found in downtown Valle de Bravo. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealThe general layout of the project includes two main levels: The lower one includes the entrance, parking space, security guard room, garbage room, a small service cafeteria, concierge room, accounting room, 36 small cellars, laundry, service bathrooms and maintenance rooms. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealThe upper level includes a self contained corridor (in L shape) that runs all along the houses. The purpose of this corridor is to become a buffer between the 9 houses and the pool area. The pool area works both as an open and a contained space, having a sense of privacy towards the houses, but opening up to the surrounding landscape. This area includes a wooden deck, a jacuzzi, two pools, a space for making fires and a small garden. At the very end of the self contained corridor, there is a small patio that brings light and calm to a yoga studio and a massage room. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealWe were careful so that every house could enjoy privacy and at the same time could open itself up to the beautiful surroundings. All bedrooms have a considerable lower height than the living rooms, that is because it is more efficient to heat such spaces and because we wanted to bring a sense of warmth, protection and coziness from the cold and wet outdoor environment. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealThe lower floor of each house (except house number 5), includes a small lobby, 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms.The upper floor of each house takes advantage of the height regulation, bringing up an expansive space that offers great views towards the lake and the surroundings. On this floor there is an open kitchen, living room, a private terrace, a small bathroom and a laundry closet. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealThe starting point for choosing the materials came from a regulation that considers that all the exterior walls should have a white plaster finish. Having such a neutral and beautiful background, we decided to combine it with two more materials: natural stone and solid wood. So all around the project (on the exterior areas and on the interior ones), there is white plaster, red burn plaster (bathrooms), solid wood and natural grey stone. It was really important for us that such materials were completely natural, because we wanted to infuse a natural, non urban experience. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealAnother important aspect of the project were the windows and doors. From the very early stages of design, we were willing to use solid surfaces of wood on the facades. So for example, the bedroom windows on the first floor, have movable solid panels of wood in the inside. These are used as blinds during the day and as temperature insulators at night. This kind of solution was commonly used long time ago in colonial houses. Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro VillarrealAll along the design process we tried to imbue the project with a sense of calmness, neutrality, openness, privacy and contact with the surrounding landscape and cityscape. Living in a city like Mexico City makes many people feel the urge to reconnect with nature, history and with themselves. We really hope that with this project we can help some people achieve that goal.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessWorld’s Tallest Steel BuildingsArticlesLearning Cube + Dairy House / University of Colorado DenverArticles Share Houses ArchDaily Santa Maria / Hierve-DiseñeriaSave this projectSaveSanta Maria / Hierve-Diseñeria ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/73210/santa-maria-hierve-diseneria Clipboard Projects Save this picture!© Fernando Cordero and Alejandro Villarreal+ 41 Share Photographslast_img read more

Nishi-ku, Osaka-shi A private house of the solitary life built near the Kyocera dome. Board sticking 1 year passes after completion, and which is an outer wall and board sticking of interior plywood, it’s when it’s being matched. When I’d like to make a fascinating house because I build hard, you speak and housing has started. At a place a little way from Nanba and Umeda, too, such, the nice house where I can think how to live is also an ant. The lot areas were a transformable place by 8 tsubo and moreover the corner lot, the inside where the budget can never be called the blessed condition, a fun design and construction.Save this picture!Courtesy of Coo planningRecommended ProductsMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapRenders / 3D AnimationVectorworksVectorworks ArchitectMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingThe space and the living which were circled by solitary life of a man of fifties, one car, a fishing equipment of a hobby and something my company likes.

Plan at first also considered the age, didn’t make a garage and made it 2 story, and the 1st floor of usual life was the plan by which you can conclude at a part, and advanced it. Because I build hard as expected than the chief mourners, I’d like to make a fascinating house, I received a word and I arrived in a complete plan. To the extent whether I can live in the house you’re going to regard your age as which for 10 years more, you’re also making a joke. When it was so, the place is also good, so it was made renting, whether you should use it, the positive chief mourners. Some meaning to which a man of fifties says that he lives alone It’s that it could be confronted with the special chief mourners.

On the north side of the plot, the house faces one of the most famous parks in Tokyo. Since the plot is only 38 square meters, it was very important to pay attention to characteristic of the plot which dramatically changes with its vertical level.Save this picture!© Daici AnoThe first floor, the café, is raised from ground level by 1.1 meter to be aligned with the park level to have pleasant atmosphere of the park and to provide visibility from the park. It is also advantage to make the basement floor with less excavation. On the second floor, a public lavatory and a transformer station come into sight. So the floor has fewer windows from outside but has two skylights. At the top floor level, by building volume regulation, a volume of the south side house has setback. So the floor can have both north and south views. On the rooftop, you can feel as if you were at the tree top.Save this picture!© Daici AnoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Daici AnoAs a result, the house consists of two parts. One is “horizontal tube” penetrating from park side to the other side. The part is open to the public. The other is the rest of the volume, just like an ants’ nest, which is, in contrast, totally private space living with skylights.Save this picture!© Daici AnoA couple, occupants of the house, had just a few requests. They want to have a café and to maximize the potential of the plot.
