Worried about a no-deal Brexit? I’ve bought these FTSE 100 stocks to protect myself

first_img Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Image source: Getty Images. As we move closer and closer towards the end of 2020, the chances of a no-deal Brexit are increasing. As such, I’ve bought two FTSE 100 stocks to protect myself from this undesirable outcome. No-deal Brexit stocks The FTSE 100 is the perfect place to look for domestic companies that may be able to navigate a no-deal Brexit. More than 70% of the index’s profits come from outside the UK. This gives it significant insulation from the domestic 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…There are a couple of companies that are more international than most. Take Unilever (LSE: ULVR), for example. This FTSE 100 company is headquartered in the UK, but more than 50% of its sales take place in emerging markets. The UK business is relatively small in comparison.What’s more, as one of the world’s largest consumer goods companies, even in the most pessimistic no-deal scenario, I don’t think there’s going to be a substantial decrease in sales of the company’s products in the UK.I reckon it’s highly unlikely consumers will stop buying items such as Marmite and Oxo stock cubes in a no-deal Brexit, or stop washing. That’s why I’ve bought the stock to protect my portfolio from a messy divorce.I believe that no matter what happens between the EU and the UK over the next few weeks, Unilever’s sales are unlikely to see significant disruption.At the same time, the stock also supports an extremely desirable 3% dividend yield. FTSE 100 growth champion Another company I’ve been buying recently is Reckitt Benckiser Group (LSE: RB). I think this organisation exhibits similar qualities to its peer Unilever. Reckitt’s product mix is focused on cleaning and health, whereas Unilever is probably better known for its food and personal grooming products.Still, the thesis remains the same. The majority of Reckitt’s sales take place outside the UK.Moreover, it’s unlikely consumers will stop buying its cleaning and healthcare products in the event of a no-deal Brexit. This is especially true in the middle of a pandemic. And I’m optimistic about the medium-term outlook for the FTSE 100 business. A new CEO has recently started to make his mark on the group, unrolling initiatives such as cost-cutting and a multi-billion-pound investment plan. The goal of this plan is to reinforce the company’s product portfolio and pipeline.In my opinion, investing for growth is always the best use of cash, as long as the money isn’t wasted. New products can lead to earnings growth, and that should translate into higher total returns for investors. Therefore, I reckon Reckitt could be an attractive investment not just for the next few months, but for the next few years as well. Like its FTSE 100 peer Unilever, the stock also offers an attractive dividend yield. It currently sits around 2%. That’s more than double the rate offered by most savings accounts on the market right now.  Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves | Tuesday, 15th December, 2020 | More on: RKT ULVR Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’!

LtdProfessional Engineer:KH Consultants Civil & Structural EngineersArchitect In Charge:Teh Kan Wee WagenDesign Team:Teh Kan Wee Wagen, Portia WijatnoCountry:SingaporeMore SpecsLess SpecsText description provided by the architects. The Arena House is a synthesis of two architecture typologies that toggles between extreme difference in programmatic scales. The proposed design is the insertion of an adapted segment of the arena typology between the party walls of the residential site in Singapore.Save this picture!Courtesy of Prow ArchitectsRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsThe residential estate is characterized by homogeneously subdivided plots of land measuring 8m x 24m for intermediate terrace house development. The allowable building envelop is limited by planning guidelines comprising of a 7.5m front setback, a 2m rear setback and a maximum building height of up to two stories with an attic. High property prices often drive the motivation to maximize the floor plates on each storey to achieve maximum built up real estate. As a result, common spaces such as the living room are contained at the 1st storey and are segregated from the private bedrooms located on the upper stories.The clients’ lifestyle calls for a re-imagination of this conventional typology. In addition to the typical residential programmatic requirements of bedrooms for their family of four and a domestic helper, the gregarious couple, who are also avid sports fans, emphasized the importance of the living room for their frequent hosting of big groups of friends for parties and the screening of movies and live sporting events in their design brief.Save this picture!Courtesy of Prow ArchitectsThe design subverts the “layered cake” organization of spaces. The bedrooms, kitchen and dining room are organized to the rear end of the intermediate terrace house plot while a resultant high ceiling living room space is located at the front to mimic the spatial relationship between the seating bowl and the event space of an arena.On an event day when the owners’ guests congregate to enjoy the screening of a live sporting event or movie, the sliding doors and curtains of the bedrooms at the 2nd storey and the master bedroom at attic level retract to become box seats in addition to the seating structure at the 1st storey. Collectively, they transform into a segment of the arena seating bowl with a sixteenfold increase in occupancy. A large format 4.5m x 4.5m motorized projection screen lowers into the event space to provide visual entertainment. It activates and converts the high ceiling event space into a focal point of the congregation. The fully operable slide and fold glass panels extend the event space at the 1st storey into the carporch for staging bigger parties when the need arises.Save this picture!SectionOn a regular day, the “arena space” reverts to the domestic scale in response to the family needs at a more intimate level. The curtains and sliding door of the bedrooms could be drawn to define the individual private spaces for each of the family member. The seating structure, which was also designed as a stepped shelving system for storage of books and display of collectibles, becomes the living room for the family. Each of the occupant could engage in their own individual activities such as reading, taking a nap, using the laptop as such on the separate tiers. Or they could engage in family activities such as watching television programme together or even engage in a game of table tennis on the open event space at the 1st storey.The building envelop and boundary gate at the front is articulated with a checkerboard field of porosity and opacity to animate the event space within. It offers glimpses of the programmatic alternation between a regular domestic day and an “arena” event day from the outside, alluding to an unconventional typological addition to the homogeneously subdivided residential estate.Save this picture!Courtesy of Prow ArchitectsSave this picture!Courtesy of Prow ArchitectsSave this picture!Courtesy of Prow ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessGP practice / LensºAss ArchitectenSelected ProjectsJG House / Speziale Linares ArquitectosSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Area:  373 m² Area:  373 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” 2012 2012 Singapore Arena House / Prow ArchitectsSave this projectSaveArena House / Prow Architects Save this picture!Courtesy of Prow Architects+ 13 Share “COPY” Year: last_img read more

Situated in the pine woods, Villa Zeist 2 by HofmanDujardin adds a strong horizontal line to the vertical nature of its surroundings. A concrete canopy connects the different brick volumes of the villa, which reflect the wishes of the family. Their house is conceived as a series of interconnected rooms which provide intimacy and offer views to the woods and the sky.Save this picture!© Matthijs van RoonPocketsThe general scheme of Villa Zeist 2 combines the family’s wish for privacy with the possibilities and restrictions of the elongated plot. Instead of a stretched bar, the villa is built up of linked volumes of different sizes which create a series of pockets. These semi-enclosed outside spaces soften the relationship between the interior and exterior. Occasionally covered by the concrete canopy, they offer protected places to be and enjoy the different perspectives of the landscape.Save this picture!© Matthijs van RoonSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Matthijs van RoonIntimacyIn the interior, these pockets strongly enhance the richness of the spaces within the volumes. They serve the client’s wish for privacy twofold. On the one hand, the shaped distance between the separate volumes provides intimacy to the rooms. On the other hand, the pockets allow to open the volumes in multiple directions to reduce the number of windows facing the direct neighbours. In some places, the floor to floor openings and sliding doors make the woods feel very close, while in other rooms carefully shaped windows frame specific perspectives.Save this picture!© Matthijs van RoonSightlinesThroughout the house, sightlines in all directions ensure connections between the different spaces and with the surroundings. This culminates in the central dining kitchen, which HofmanDujardin shaped as the social heart for the family. Here, a void along the façade opens towards the first floor, where a large window brings in plenty of daylight and frames the Dutch sky. This view is complemented with the warm bricks and timber frames, which characterize the interior and make the villa ground in the woods.Save this picture!© Matthijs van RoonProject gallerySee allShow lessA House in a Garden / David Leech ArchitectsSelected ProjectsUCCA Dune Art Museum / OPEN ArchitectureSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeHofmanDujardinOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsZeistThe NetherlandsPublished on December 13, 2018Cite: “Villa Zeist 2 / HofmanDujardin” 13 Dec 2018.

Baltimore protests erupt over police killing of Freddie Grey

first_imgCity Hall rally on April 20 assails fatal beating.WW photo: Sharon BlackBaltimore — Protests over the police killing of 25-year-old Freddie Carlos Grey erupted over the April 18-19 weekend after the announcement of the young African-American man’s death on April 19. Grey was brutally and callously dragged to a police wagon after being thrown to the ground because he could not walk. Eventually taken to the hospital, he was put on life support after suffering three broken vertebrae and a severed spinal cord on April 12.Hundreds of people from West Baltimore went into the streets both days to protest in front of the Western District police station. At the request of Grey’s family, the People’s Power Assembly and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference staged a downtown protest and rally in front of City Hall on April 20 at 9 a.m. The protesters then marched to police headquarters where police blocked the entrance to the station.This brutal case has garnered national press coverage. The PPA, SCLC and the community have called for a planning meeting to discuss next steps on April 22 at 7 p.m. at the Baltimore Solidarity Center, 2011 N. Charles St.  Protests are continuing every night at the Western District station.

Portuguese Marxists view U.S. elections

first_imgFrom Jornal Mudar de VidaThe following note on the jornalmudardevida.net site introduced a Portuguese translation of a WW editorial about the U.S. national election. It gives some insight into how European revolutionaries saw the U.S. election on the eve of Election Day. Translation: John Catalinotto.The upcoming elections in the United States present the working classes with a dilemma: either to turn away from the vote and let Trump win a second term, or to commit to defeating Trump and handing over power to another representative of the same ruling classes. But if this is the inevitable result in general terms, the path that leads to one or the other of the possible outcomes makes a difference for working people in the U.S. and in the world.First of all, because a Trump defeat would not be the same as a Trump victory. A defeat places an obstacle in the way of the pro-fascist path that won him the presidency four years ago. A victory would mean consecrating that same path. In addition, despite all the limitations of an electoral campaign, a mobilization to undo Trump’s gang opens the way to a political awareness that did not exist in many previous elections and in the minds of many voters.Even more important and far beyond any propagandistic effort by the candidates, this anti-Trump mobilization results from and is the extension of the strong street actions against racism throughout the country, the rejection of the murderous health policy of the Trump government, and the misery that the economic crisis leads to for millions of U.S. families.It is therefore important to consider the potential gains for the class struggle in terms of workers’ unity, in order to supplant partisan and ethnic divisions. Such unity in turn would allow for future steps to confront the capitalist-imperialist system itself. Developing and prolonging the mass struggles of recent months emerges as the natural and most secure way to affirm an independent path of political action for U.S. workers.A defeat of Trump would have consequences not only in the United States. The extreme right-wing and openly fascist forces that are raising their heads around the world have had at the very least the moral and political support of the U.S. government and the fascist media that multiply in its shadow. It is to be expected, therefore, that those forces would suffer a setback − in Jair Bolsonaro’s Brazil, Matteo Salvini’s Italy, Marine Le Pen’s France, the Vox Party’s Spain, Brexit’s Britain and even André Ventura’s Portugal. Even if the decisive thing is, of course, the internal political struggle in each of these countries, the loss of the external incentive given to these forces on Trump’s account is not to be underestimated.As the text we publish in the U.S. communist weekly Workers World points out, the mass actions that take place around the elections go beyond the elections themselves to the extent that they measure the possibility of building the unity of the working classes for the foreseeable future. They represent, therefore, a boost to class struggle − a condition for there to be consistent opposition to any of the capitalist parties that take office.[For WW editorial, see workers.org/2020/10/52048/]FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
