ISA investors! Three 5% dividend yields whose share prices could explode in 2020

first_img Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Gold prices continue to edge higher. It’s a phenomenon I expect could persist through 2020 as investor concerns over key geopolitical and macroeconomic issues are likely to persist.It’s the tension over the unfortunate coronavirus outbreak, and its subsequent global spread that’s driving gold right now. The safe-haven metal just hit fresh seven-year tops above $1,610 per ounce. A run of troubled updates from some of the planet’s biggest companies have illustrated the impact that the illness is having on the global economy.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…Shipping giant Maersk said that it has cancelled scores of trips for its container vessels, a reflection of weak Chinese factory activity. Airline Qantas warned on profits as it cancelled all flights to mainland China. And Apple cautioned the market about sagging sales of its iPhone because of supply chain difficulties and shuttered stores in its key Chinese marketplace.Those negative updates were all issued in the space of a couple of days this week. And they are just a taster of what’s been hitting investor sentiment more recently. The number of alarming warnings is likely to continue gaining momentum as global businesses steadily absorb the impact of the coronavirus tragedy on their operations, too.Growth forecasts under pressureA new study from Oxford Economics has done little to calm the nerves, either. It estimates that Chinese gross domestic product (or GDP) growth will plunge to just 3.8% in the first quarter. As a result, global GDP expansion in the three months to March will register at 1.9%.Oxford Economics also cut its forecasts for the whole year, somewhat unsurprisingly. It shaved six-tenths of a percentage point off its Chinese GDP growth estimate, to 5.4%. Its estimate for worldwide GDP growth is now put at 2.3%, too, down from 2.5% previously.The forecasting body said that global GDP growth will pick up in the second half of 2020 “as the disruption from the virus outbreak fades, firms make up for the output lost earlier in the year, and the effect of China’s policy response starts to feed through to activity.” A logical assumption, sure. But we could well see more GDP estimates reduced further down the line should COVID-19 keep spreading quickly.Protect yourselfIn this environment it could be a good idea to protect your shares portfolio with exposure to gold. It’s not just coronavirus-related fears that could fuel flight-to-safety demand for the yellow metal. Fresh tensions over Brexit, trade wars, and a host of other issues could also boost the commodity price in 2020.I for one reckon buying shares in Highland Gold Mining, Polymetal International, and Centamin could be a good idea in the current climate. It’s not just that they all look cheap on paper (the latter trades on a forward price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 0.5 times. The other two carry price-to-earnings ratios of 10 times and below for this year).It’s that they also carry prospective bulky dividend yields of 5% and above, too. All three of these diggers surged in value in 2019 thanks to strong gold prices. It looks as if the same phenomenon could be in train for 2020, too.

Recycling a single story suburban house located on a busy corner site, the Jigsaw Residence introverts itself in a continuous spatial flow around an open air courtyard carved from the home’s remains. A matrix of spaces is linked by movement through them as storeys merge and spaces relate to each other as they rise and fall in a series of interlocked puzzle-like volumes giving a unique three dimensional framework to each space where plan and section respond to program simultaneously.Save this picture!© Paul Warchol PhotographyFundamental to the conception of the house is the notion of reflectivity, rendering unclear the boundaries between inside and outside. Light and space are modulated by meshing ribbons of wall and glass that form a tessellation of solid and void. The conditioning of these internal and external walls is identical. Planes of stucco exterior walls transform into plaster interior walls while passing through glass.

Residential Building with 67 subsidized apartments as well as the production school, for adolescents and young adults with an extended demand for support and assistance in planning their educational and vocational future. Close to the new main railway station in Vienna the novel neighbourhood Sonnwendviertel sets itself the goal to offer affordable housing connected to the existing as well as the new city fabric, and sufficient green and open space.Save this picture!© tschinkersten fotografieThe architecture of this project embraces this proposition and, in line with the motto “Park meets City: Life at Helmut-Zilk Park”, develops a reinterpretation of the classical courtyard, in which open space is maximized and oriented towards the park – a residential courtyard with a view. The L-shaped geometry of the building´s volume allows a demarcation to the road and creates a large, quiet and green courtyard connected to the Helmut Zilk Park. In this way it takes advantage of the specific quality of the site, allowing apartments to have a view at the green within a central urban area.Save this picture!© tschinkersten fotografieThe main staircase and a large elevator, suitable for bicycles and strollers, is situated on the corner of the street. Another staircase is located on the boundary to the neighbouring building. The apartments are entered via extra-wide access decks – BALCON + – which can be used by the community as bicycle parking space, additional open space or green balconies.Save this picture!© tschinkersten fotografieThe aim of the project is to create flexible housing for families with children and adolescents: couples with one or more children, singles with children, providing them with a “first home of their own” or even an opportunity to work in their own home. The layout of the floor plan is based on the structural division of the apartments into three segments. An entrance, a sanitary unit and a kitchen area alongside the access deck, an internal access zone and ultimately – facing the garden – the living area with an attached private open space.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Section planThus, all living rooms are oriented towards the large courtyard and are very flexible for future changes. The attached balcony structure provides all apartments with an individual space and at the same time a green protection against the sun. Each apartment has a continuous strip of balcony in front of each room as well as a deeper balcony as a private open space, which expands the living room to the outside.Save this picture!© tschinkersten fotografieOn the ground floor alongside Eva-Zilcher-Gasse the “Spacelab” with a ceiling-height of four meters is located. The approximately 800m2 large area of ​​“Spacelab” is spread over three floors, has an inviting entrance area facing the street and a large private open space facing the courtyard in the basement with three workshops. The ground floor adjoining the northern boundary of the property is reserved for communal use and, together with the spacious passageway, offers direct views of the park.Save this picture!© tschinkersten fotografieThe large yard is completely available to the community of tenants.The common room stretches from the street front to the large yard of the complex on the ground floor and is supplemented by a roofed sundeck.

Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center have become classrooms. “These spaces have been mapped for physical distancing and equipped with the furniture and technology that you would expect in a traditional classroom,” said Dr. Sandra R. Callaghan, an associate professor of accounting.On April 1, Vice Provost Susan Weeks announced TCU will hold some in-person classes in non-traditional classroom settings next fall.Read more: Changes in COVID-19 guidelines, upcoming Board of Trustees meeting discussed with Faculty SenateAs of right now, the CDC has changed social distancing guidelines from six feet of social distancing to three feet. TCU will continue to monitor these changes and adjust classroom capacities as needed. Here are the current guidelines:95% capacity – six feet physical distancing 98% capacity – three feet physical distancing100% capacity – no physical distancingOnce the recommendation is made, TCU will adjust accordingly.“In the fall, we will add additional non-traditional spaces to increase the number of classroom seats available for as long as physical distancing remains part of our COVID protocol,” said Callaghan.Non-traditional classroom set up in the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center (Amanda Vasquez/ TCU 360)Elaine Wagstaff, clinical educator in the speech-language pathology department, has enjoyed teaching in the Kelly Center this semester.“This semester has been easy because of Cheryl Cobb and her student workers making sure we have the technology support we need,” said Wagstaff. “They have made us feel welcome and gone above and beyond to make sure we are set up for our class.”The only difficulty Wagstaff has encountered this semester has been teaching some of her students over Zoom and some online components.“That has been the biggest challenge for me this semester, adjusting to teaching more than one audience at the same time,” said Wagstaff. “The challenge for me has been the ‘new’ classroom with the Zoom component and modifying my assignments and tests to all online [and] D2L.”She also felt the new setup accommodated her class and followed social distancing sufficiently. The only difficulty, the technology, was quickly tended to by the technical support team.“They brought desks (more like small dining room tables) for each student so they are spaced out and room to spread out in their own space,” said Wagstaff. “The Kelly Center is set up for presentations so the technology was just new to me. But again Cheryl and her student assistant Sam have been so helpful.”TCU vaccinationsVolunteers at the TCU vaccination site (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)As of April 13, 8,079 students, faculty and staff members have requested the vaccine and 4,471 have been vaccinated.  TCU’s Connected Campus has been tracking the reservations and vaccinated TCU community members.Chancellor Victor Boschini announced TCU currently has no plans to require students to be vaccinated next fall, but will keep track of other universities to see what their plans are for next year.

TV journalist kidnapped three days ago, still missing

first_img Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Venezuela New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets News August 25, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is very relieved to learn that Nairobi Pinto, the Globovisión head of correspondants kidnapped by unidentified men on 6 April, was released unharmed yesterday.At a press conference a few minutes after her release, Pinto said she was not mistreated and thanked the local and international media for the publicity they gave to her abduction, which may have put pressure on her kidnappers.“Pinto’s release is a real relief,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We hope the investigation that is under way quickly establishes who was responsible for this crime.”Pinto was unable to say how many people abducted her because they kept her blindfolded all the time.“They always treated me well and never put a hand on me,” she said. “They fed me and never spoke in my presence. I was able to listen to the news regularly.” A special judicial police team is investigating her abduction.________09.04.2014: TV journalist kidnapped three days ago, still missingReporters Without Borders is very worried about TV journalist Nairobi Pinto, who has been missing since 6 April, when her sister saw two masked individuals kidnap her outside her home on the outskirts of Caracas.Pinto works for the TV news channel Globovisión as director of all its regional news bureaux. Her kidnappers have not contacted her family at any time since her abduction.“Journalists are on the front line at this particularly sensitive time in Venezuela, the victims of both police harassment and popular anger,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We urge the authorities to shed light on this abduction without delay, and at the same time not to immediately rule out the possibility that it is linked to Pinto’s work as a journalist.”Commenting yesterday on her abduction, interior and justice minister Miguel Rodríguez said he thought members of opposition parties might have been responsible.But several news media have suggested that it might be linked to the political militancy of one of her close relatives, who is an active member of an opposition party. Nonetheless, those investigating her abduction say they have not as yet identified a motive.Venezuela is ranked 116th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
