Dividends, growth, value, momentum! I think this top stock is a great buy for ISA investors

first_img Enter Your Email Address Dividends, growth, value, momentum! I think this top stock is a great buy for ISA investors See all posts by Royston Wild I’m convinced that Highland Gold Mining (LSE: HGM) has the tools to record more price gains in 2020.Apart from the unfortunate coronavirus outbreak in China that is supporting bullion at around $1,570 per ounce, there are a wide range of geopolitical and macroeconomic factors that could drive metal prices higher in 2020. These same considerations drove gold values to seven-year highs in 2019 and pulled Highland Gold’s share price 15% higher, too. It’s kept up the pace in 2020 so far and is up 7% since the start of January as well.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…Scary times to drive gold demand?Markets remain tense and a recent survey from HYCM illustrates this perfectly. A pool of investor opinion showed that 57% of respondents believe that “the current international political landscape is making investment markets more volatile.” A further 32% said that they expect the Brexit issue in particular to have a negative impact on their financial portfolio this year.And as a consequence more than a third (36%) of respondents said that they plan to restructure their portfolio to account for additional volatility. The survey did not reveal intentions to buy gold or gold-related investments specifically. But as the world’s go-to asset in troubled times, it’s likely that this safe haven class will be one of those that experience strong demand.Bright price and production prospectsExpectations of robust gold prices is one of the reasons City analysts expect Highland’s profits to rise 5% in 2020.The boffins at UBS just today repeated their belief that gold will average $1,600 per ounce in the current calendar year. And they expect the yellow metal to continue trading around these levels in the first quarter of 2021, too.Predictions of solid metal prices aren’t the only reason Highland is tipped to thrive, though. Production is booming at the Russia-focussed digger, as fresh mining numbers showed last month. Highland dragged 300,704 ounces of gold out of the ground in 2019, representing a 12% increase year on year. A stunning fourth quarter helped volumes beat guidance and provide momentum going into 2020, too. Then the AIM company produced 83,429 ounces of gold, a 27% annual increase.No wonder City brokers are saying that they expect annual earnings to keep increasing at Highland beyond the near term, then. Solid production and bright prices mean that a 10% bottom-line increase is predicted for next year as well.Terrific valueDespite its bright earnings outlook, though, and solid price gains of late, Highland remains attractively priced. A forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 9 times is comfortably within the value benchmark of 10 times and below.But the mining giant isn’t just a great pick for growth investors at current prices. City predictions of more dividend growth in 2020 leads to a 5% dividend yield. And the figure moves to 5.5% for 2021. Compare that with the 3% average which the UK’s mid-caps currently throw up.

Tawera Kerr-Barlow sets up try with sensational behind the back pass

first_imgFriday Aug 29, 2014 Tawera Kerr-Barlow sets up try with sensational behind the back pass Waikato lost 46-17 to Taranaki in the ITM Cup on Wednesday, conceding six tries in Hamilton, but it was the home side that provided the moment of the match. Trailing and in need of something special, Tawera Kerr-Barlow delivered in the second half. The released All Black contributed towards Waikato’s first try in the 43rd minute, scored by Declan O’Donnell, with a flick pass, but it was the second in particular that was from another planet.We’ve seen similar reverse type passes before, namely with Brock James and Tamati Ellison last year, but those – equally brilliant – were to do with momentum. This was a stationary, calculated decision, and he pulled it off perfectly. Straight to hand, and certainly not forward.Taranaki picked up their biggest win against their provincial neighbours, as Marty McKenzie scored two of his team’s tries, and kicked six from eight attempts at goal. Waikato’s only tries were those by Joe Webber and O’Donnell in what was a good few minutes, having trailed 27-3 at the break.The 46-17 loss comes a week after being thumped 58-27 by Canterbury. They face North Harbour on Saturday, while Taranaki take on Auckland away on Sunday. While this pass won’t mean too much to the Waikato outfit after a loss like that, it’s well worth watching again. Another thing to note is that the advantage was only called by the referee after he made the pass, not before, so it took a lot of skill and a serious amount of self-belief to pull it off.The updated video below includes the assist for the first try, as well as the pass for the secondADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Breathing house is for a single family, located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. The plot is 3.9m wide and 17.8m deep, only accessible by a tiny alley with crowded surroundings. Within this extremely high-dense neighborhood, we aimed to design a house that introduces an external environment while ensuring privacy.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiDue to the circumstances of site, the opening of the building was physically constrained  to the front, top and back of the house. In order to adjust the distance between neighbouring buildings while maximizing the opening area, we wrapped the aforementioned three surfaces of the building with a “green veil”, which is made of creeper plants that grow on a steel mesh. This soft layer, as an environmental diffuser, filters direct sunlight and prevents the interior space from overexposure to the outside, without the feeling of isolation. It is composed of planter boxes at each floor slab, with modularized galvanized steel elements attached to it. This structure provides a green view throughout the house, which also protects the residents from the urban crime.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiInside the “green veil”, the building consists of 5 tower-like volumes that are staggered and connected to each other, arranged in between the two boundary walls. The external spaces created by the staggered arrangement of the volumes, which we call “Micro voids”, play a role in providing myriad indirect lighting and ventilation routes throughout the building. In the narrow and deep plot shuttered by neighbours on both sides, it is more environmentally effective to promote ventilation for each corner of the house, by multiple “micro voids”, rather than having a singular large courtyard. The “micro voids” have openings on each of the floors, through which the residents have a more longitudinal and diagonal see-through view from everywhere, looking into the green and other spaces. The staircase is also designed as one of the micro voids with top light and openings facing the rooms. The porous composition of the building reduces the use of air conditioning to enhance natural ventilation, creating both spatial and visual connection and depth in the house.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe roof terrace is covered by the “green veil”, becoming a space full of greenery which is rare in the crowded city area. The significance of the project is that it creates a green space, in the heart of a growing mega city. We hope the essence of this design would give positive influence to the cities in Vietnam, which is losing its green spaces at an alarming rate. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiProject gallerySee allShow lessThis Compact “Rolling Ruler” Seeks to Change how Architects MeasureArchitecture News7 International Examples of How the Bauhaus Lived On After 1933Articles Share Year:  Area:  343 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Projects Breathing House / VTN ArchitectsSave this projectSaveBreathing House / VTN Architectslast_img read more

The intervention on this Victorian semi-detached house in northwest London, previously on multiple occupations, reconfigured the layout and transformed its material quality based on the degree to which the use of areas of the house had generally evolved since it was built. This is, the public areas were opened up and connected, extending to the rear and stripping out layers of finishes that had accumulated over time, while the form of the private quarters above had not significantly changed and their grand proportion and character remained valid to serve the clients and their young family’s needs.

A call to action: Save Rodney Reed!

first_imgThousands of protestors demonstrated outside the Texas Governor’s Mansion for three hours Nov. 9 to demand “Free Rodney Reed!” Reed’s execution is scheduled for Nov. 20.A busload of students from Prairie View University, one of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities, were there. A young man from Wisconsin drove to Austin with hundreds of large white flags — which he printed himself — reading INNOCENT! with a silhouette of a man behind bars. He was attaching them to 10-foot poles for all who wanted one. Rodney Reed (WW photo: Gloria Rubac)The Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement took carloads from the S.H.A.P.E. Center in Houston to Austin. One of the drivers was Ozell Brandley, brother of Clarence Brandley, who was freed from Texas death row in 1990 after wrongfully spending 10 years awaiting execution.Reed’s case has become the most publicized and well-known death penalty case in recent history. From celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, LL Cool J, Rihanna, Dr. Phil McGraw and Kim Kardashian to national media like CNN, The New York Times and Democracy Now! Reed’s case is being recognized around the country as one of injustice. Support keeps pouring in: from Steve Adler, the mayor of Austin; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Joe S. Vasquez, the Catholic Bishop of Austin; and the dozens of Texas legislators from both parties who have contacted the governor. Sister Helen Prejean, known for her book opposing the death penalty, “Dead Man Walking,” is an advocate for Reed.If you are not one of the over 2.5 million people who have signed the petition to stop Reed’s execution, you must do it right now! Go to The scheduled execution is only days away, and we must stop it. Reed, who is African American, was convicted of raping and murdering a young white woman, Stacey Stites, in 1998 in the small, overtly racist town of Bastrop. The two were involved in a romantic relationship, and it was not common to see interracial couples in Bastrop. The all-white jury who sent Reed to death row obviously disapproved. A little background on Bastrop: Standing about 50 feet tall outside the Bastrop County Court House is a towering obelisk, a monument engraved with the Confederate battle flag erected by the local Daughters of the Confederacy in 1910. The majority in the town want to keep it there.Less than a mile away lives Reed’s mother, Sandra Reed, on Martin Luther King Drive. She and her whole family have fought for two decades to stop the injustice against Rodney Reed. A racist frame-up to protect violent copThe real reason Reed took the hit for this murder is that the actual killer was very likely the white cop who was engaged to Stites, Jimmy Fennell. All evidence points to him, and in the last few weeks people have given sworn statements that he confessed to the killing. Fennell recently served 10 years in prison for kidnapping and raping a woman he stopped for a traffic violation. But at the time of the crime against Stites, local cops were covering up for him.The Death Penalty Information Center’s Executive Director Robert Dunham told the Texas Observer, a progressive news magazine, that the Reed case has generated so much attention because it “has all the characteristics of what used to be lynchings. … This looks like an African-American man is being railroaded to his death because of a consensual relationship with a white woman who was cheating on a dirty cop.”So many facts have come out recently that anyone with a clear mind can see that the wrong person is awaiting execution. The murder weapon, a belt that was used to strangle Stites, has never been tested for DNA despite the defense’s requests. The highest court in Texas has denied testing. In 2018 the U.S. Supreme Court declined to directly review the Texas courts’ denial of DNA testing.Forensic experts say Reed is innocentRenowned forensic pathologists, including Michael Baden, M.D.; Werner Spitz, M.D.; LeRoy Riddick, M.D.; and Cyril Wecht, M.D., have all concluded that Reed’s guilt is medically and scientifically impossible. The state’s three forensic experts have admitted on record to errors in their trial testimony, which led to Reed’s conviction and death sentence.Fennell’s best friend at the time of the crime, Bastrop Sheriff’s Officer Curtis Davis, has now revealed that Fennell gave an inconsistent account of where he was the night of the murder. On Oct. 29, Arthur Snow, who was in prison with Fennell, disclosed a conversation in which Fennell confessed to murdering Stacey Stites, stating, “I had to kill my n-loving fiancée.”Reed will likely be present for a hearing on his case on Nov. 13. He asked his family during a visit Nov. 1 to gather people to rally outside at noon and then attend the 1:30 hearing. The Rev. Al Sharpton will be one of many speakers. An all-night protest outside the governor’s mansion in Austin will begin Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. and end at 7 a.m. on Nov. 15. Another all-nighter, also beginning Nov. 14 at 7 p.m., will be held outside the U.S. Supreme Court and will end the next day at 10 a.m. As Reed’s brother Rodrick Reed has explained many times, this isn’t just about his brother. There are many Rodney Reeds wrongfully imprisoned. We must fight for all of them. The people aren’t asking Gov. Abbott for anything special, only that he do the right thing. “We’re asking for justice, for integrity. We have to bring my brother home,” says Rodrick. As the thousands chanted on Austin’s streets, “Brick by brick, wall by wall, Free Rodney Reed, free them all!”Follow events on Facebook at Reed Justice Initiative.

And, we have all had a good time and the students have made some very pretty pots.”“The students not only learned about ways to decorate pots to make them pretty they also learned that senior citizens can do a lot of things and are a lot of fun.”McKenzie Caple thought seniors are “old people that can’t move around and can’t do a lot of stuff” but, after spending a morning with several Colley Senior Complex volunteers, she discovered, “They can do things and do them good.” Skip Motes said activities that bring young people and senior adults together provide positive experiences for both.“We learn from each other,” she said.The Pike County Day Camp is sponsored by East Central Mental Health and is designed for ages five through 12.“We have about 60 students enrolled in the camp,” said Shayla Terry, camp director. “The camp is a day long camp and begins with breakfast and then, we try to beat the heat, and get in some outdoor activities.” A group of students from Pike County Elementary School who are participating in the Pike County Summer Day Camp in Brundidge visited the Colley Senior Complex on Wednesday and learned about making decorative pottery and also about senior citizens.The group included students in third grade and up and each student brought artwork to share with the seniors at the Complex. Senior volunteers helped each student decorate a terra cotta pot to take home.Janet Motes, Center director, said the idea behind the pots activity was for the students to do an art project that was in keeping with art projects at the Colley Senior Complex. The indoor activities include arts and crafts, study time and a time for sharing.“We plan a field trip for each week and the children always look forward to those trips,” Terry said. “We’ve been to the Wiregrass Museum in Dothan, to McClelland’s Critters, bowling, swimming at the recreation park in Troy and we’ve got a trip planned to the Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker. The Pike County Day Camp is well attended and the students really benefit from it. And we thank the Colley Senior Complex for having us. We’ve all had a good time and learned a lot about making pots and everyone has been so nice and helpful.”last_img read more
