first_img Image source: The Motley Fool Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 31st May, 2021 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The ‘secret’ Warren Buffett tip that could make investors a fortune See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA 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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. There are plenty of Warren Buffett quotes we hear all the time. For example, every time there’s a market crash we hear the line “be greedy when others are fearful.” Another quote that pops up a lot is “it’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price, than a fair company at a wonderful price.”These are both great tips. However, there’s another line from the greatest investor of all time that’s potentially more powerful from a wealth-generation perspective. It’s not a quote you hear very often. However, it’s one of the secrets to Buffett’s success. Interested to learn more? Read on, and I’ll reveal this valuable piece of stock-picking advice.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…The best Warren Buffett tip of all time?The quote from Buffett I’m talking about is: “The primary test of managerial economic performance is the achievement of a high earnings rate on equity capital employed and not the achievement of consistent gains in earnings per share.”I can understand why this line – which is from the 1970s – isn’t one of Buffett’s most well-known quotes. It doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as something like “Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.”However, it’s an extremely powerful piece of advice. What Buffett is essentially saying is that the number one thing to look for in a stock is a high level of profitability — a high return on capital employed (ROCE) — and not increases in earnings per share (which most investors focus on).ROCE is calculated by dividing operating profit by the sum of shareholders’ equity and long-term liabilities. These days, most data providers work it out it for you so you don’t need to calculate it.Terry Smith follows this Buffett tipThe only investor I’ve heard discuss this Buffett tip is Fundsmith manager Terry Smith. He often mentions it in his letters to investors. He’s also incorporated the advice into his investment process – most of his stocks have a high ROCE. Microsoft, Visa, and Diageo are some good examples.It’s clearly worked for Smith. Over the last decade, he’s smashed the market, turning £100,000 into more than £500,000. Over the same period, a lot of fund managers have underperformed the market.Why this tip is powerfulWhy is this tip so powerful? Well, it’s pretty simple really. If a company has a low ROCE, below its cost of capital (ie the cost of debt and equity), it’s essentially going to destroy shareholder value over time. However, if it has a high ROCE above the cost of capital, it’ll increase shareholder value over time.Think about it this way. If you borrow money at an interest rate of 10% per year and make an 8% per year return on it, you’re going to get poorer over time. However, if you borrow money at 10% per year and make a 20% per year return, you’re going to get wealthier. It’s no different with businesses.Profitability is key Of course, there’s more to stock picking than just looking at return on capital employed. It’s also important to look at a company’s growth prospects, competitive advantage, balance sheet, management, and other factors.However, focusing on a company’s profitability is a smart move, in my view. Ultimately, companies with a high ROCE tend to grow much larger over time.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Smart Home is a renovation and extension to a two-bedroom single-fronted timber Victorian cottage in inner Melbourne. It utilizes a wide range of social, healthy, environmental and passive solar design principles and products to create a high-level environmentally sustainable home that is also modestly-sized and affordable. We aimed to create a project that achieves: An outstanding, affordable home: It was important to us to create an example of best-practice environmentally sustainable design that is both achievable and affordable for many Australians. The final build cost per square meter for this project is $2,300/m2 +GST. We believe this is an excellent result for a home designed to high-level environmentally sustainable design principles.Save this picture!© Emma CrossA small, smart result: More space, however environmentally designed and constructed, still creates environmental impact. Thrive Research has shown that every 12-meter square room built in Australia creates the equivalent of 80,000km worth of car exhaust emissions, consumes 90 years’€™ worth of drinking water for four persons, and costs $24,000 in construction and energy bills over its lifetime Through carefully assessing the need for every additional square meter of home (and utilizing a mezzanine instead of a second story) we added 20% more usable indoor space to their existing home with only 13m2 additional footprint. Almost 50% landscape coverage: We aim to maintain as much landscape in our projects ‘€“ particularly in highly urbanized environments ‘€“ to enhance the wellbeing of ecosystems and inhabitants.Save this picture!© Emma CrossOur clients requested a more thermally comfortable home with best-practice environmental credentials. This project faced a number of critical challenges that had to be overcome in order to meet these sustainability and design targets. The constraints included overshadowing, poor orientation and a small 7.5 metre wide east-west block built close to the boundary. The existing home was dark and leaky with a lean-to at the rear. We needed to demolish the lean-to and create a whole-home solution that connected existing home with new renovation while improving the thermal performance of the home as a whole. We had to modify our clients’€™ initial brief for the second story to achieve sustainability (and budget) targets.Save this picture!© Emma CrossOur clients were unaware of the environmental, spatial and fiscal costs of ‘€œgoing up’€: the additional space required for the second storey to house the staircase and associated circulation spaces; ‘€œhidden’€ costs for labour, scaffolding, insurances, materials, engineering, and design to accommodate overlooking legislation; heating, cooling, cleaning and maintenance requirements and ongoing costs, and so on. Our response creates interesting volumes for architectural beauty, and minimises idle space by ensuring the floor plan is utilised to its full capacity through clever storage solutions and split level living. The single storey addition includes open plan living, dining and kitchen opening via large openable glazed doors to an outdoor deck.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanA mezzanine over the pantry and study nook utilizes the volumes created by the cathedral ceiling, while large openable skylights increase the perception of light and space, and double as ‘thermal chimneys’ to assist natural ventilation processes in summer. Storage is integrated into built-in dining seating, while the study can easily be closed off by operating a large sliding door. The mezzanine stair is also integrated into this space, where it can slide in and out of a bookshelf. Brick planter boxes are located directly outside windows to bring the garden closer to the house, and allow for a herb garden directly outside the kitchen window. This smart storage combines with beautiful material selections, natural light and exciting form to transform the cottage into a high performance, healthy, and comfortable modern residence.Save this picture!© Emma CrossProject gallerySee allShow lessDeaconry Bethanien / E2ASelected ProjectsChubby Cat House / aoa architectsSelected Projects Share Smart Home / Green Sheep CollectiveSave this projectSaveSmart Home / Green Sheep Collective ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGreen Sheep CollectiveOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSeddonAustraliaPublished on November 18, 2017Cite: “Smart Home / Green Sheep Collective” 17 Nov 2017.

first_imgOnline marketplace launches to support & facilitate F2F fundraising AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via Tagged with: face-to-face An online marketplace specialising in face-to-face fundraising has launched in the UK to help charities and agencies deliver campaigns in partnership and to provide support through specialist campaign creation and software solutions, from digital pitch decks to contactless donation platforms.Formunauts One is the UK presence of the formunauts brand, which was founded in Austria by Reinhard Schlossnagel in 2014. Since then, it has helped deliver over 300 campaigns in nine countries globally for charities including WWF, Amnesty International, Oxfam and Greenpeace.The new launch is headed up by Managing Director and co-owner Vaughan Thomas, who previously held the position of Managing Director for the agency Personal Fundraising Services. It is now inviting charities and agencies to register their interest.Charities using the platform will be offered support with their campaign from a formunauts One consultant. The campaign will then be listed on the online marketplace, where pre-vetted agencies can discover and choose the campaign based on their services and capacity. Once a partnership has been agreed, formunauts One will provide any additional support throughout the duration of the campaign.The marketplace also aims to help combat the challenges posed by social distancing measure as the formunauts One software has contactless capability, enabling not only donations but the entire pledge form to be completed without members of the public having to touch the fundraisers’ tablets.In addition, its commitment to best practice means formunauts One requires all of its partners – both charities and fundraising agencies – to agree to membership charters. Criteria for membership includes keeping to the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice and rewarding fundraisers for their efforts by paying the equivalent of the Living Wage as a minimum.Vaughan said:“Formunauts One is the future of face-to-face fundraising. We create missions fundraisers love to support, so we’re incredibly excited to introduce this approach to campaign creation and management to the UK charity sector.”“For too long face-to-face has been held back by a narrow-minded vision of what constitutes success. Statistically a fundraiser needs to have 100 conversations to convert between two and three people to become donors – a huge waste when the criteria for success is based purely on this number. Thinking like this has to change.“Partnerships are key to everything we do, which is why our slogan is ‘Together we are One’. We are committed to working with all of our partners to make formunauts One synonymous with the highest quality fundraising practices, and raise vital, much-needed funds in the process.”center_img Melanie May | 10 March 2021 | News  432 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgSan Francisco — In solidarity with their compatriots in Honduras, who have poured into the streets of that Central American country in the hundreds of thousands, Hondurans living in the Bay Area have repeatedly rallied in the Mission District to protest widespread fraud in the Nov. 26 presidential election.“This new electoral coup calls for a strong international response,” Porfirio Quintano, of Bay Area Hondurans United against the Dictatorship, told a Dec. 28 rally. “Look what’s been happening. Since the U.S.-backed 2009 coup in Honduras and their 2004 coup in Haiti, the U.S. imperialists have been complicit in the ouster of elected presidents in Paraguay and Brazil, as well as their constant intrigues against the elected government in Venezuela.”“It’s clear that Washington has zero respect for the votes of the people of Latin America,” he added.The Nov. 26 Honduran presidential election pitted incumbent strongman and U.S. favorite Juan Orlando Hernández against challenger Salvador Nasralla from the Alianza coalition. But after the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) announced that Nasralla was winning by a 5 percent margin with 71 percent of the votes counted, TSE abruptly stopped the count and declared Hernández the winner.“They have stolen the votes from us,” Nasralla said at a Dec. 10 march. “This country will be ungovernable starting now.”At the Bay Area rally, Quintano said popular anger at the stolen election is broader and more powerful today than after the coup in 2009. “Then, the protests were mainly in the larger cities. Today, the movement is everywhere in Honduras, including little villages in the countryside. Today all the people are involved in this fight.”Welsh was part of an International Action Center delegation to Honduras shortly after the 2009 coup, as well as an international observer during the 2013 presidential “selection” of Juan Orlando Hernández.

Listeners heard the shots and the cries of his colleagues before the broadcast was cut off.A frequent critic of the local authorities in his programmes, Román led a movement consisting of about 800 local farming families whose land was flooded when Picachos dam was built in Sinaloa state in 2007. He had received threats in the past in connection with his role in organizing marches and protests to demand compensation for the lost land.“We urge the authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into Atilano Román’s shocking murder and to bring those responsible to justice,” said Reporters Without Borders deputy programme director Virginie Dangles. “Murdering a presenter in a radio studio while he is on the air shows that violence against journalists knows no limits in Mexico.”In a separate development in Sinaloa state, a local magazine editor was reported missing on 13 October. Jesús Antonio Gamboa, who edited Nueva Prensa, a magazine based in the city of Ahome, was last seen in Ahome by one of his brothers on the night of 10 October, his family said.

Three more journalists have said in a letter to the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) they have received regular death threats since last month. The three — George Hubierna, a reporter with the People’s Journal and People’s Tonight based in Manila, Nelson Bolos, a journalist-researcher with the same papers, and Paul Gonzales, editor of Tarlac Headline News – have reported on corruption in the building of an expressway in Tarlac, about 100 km from Manila, and the threats referred to this.
