  • Lloyds shares: Hargreaves Lansdown investors are buying. Here’s what I’d do

Here’s what I’d docenter_img It is not surprising to see why Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) shares fell to 24p in September. The bank is predominately UK-centric and most of its business is generated from its retail division, which includes mortgages and credit cards.Uncertainties over Brexit, the impact of Coronavirus and low interest rates have hardly been the ideal conditions for Lloyds. In fact, Hargreaves Lansdown points out that it has “been close to a perfect storm” for the bank and I would agree. Yet last week, Lloyds was the fourth most bought stock on the platform.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…So what now for Lloyds shares?Return to profitabilityLloyds released its third-quarter results in October, which were encouraging. The bank delivered a pre-tax profit of £1bn for the quarter, a significant uplift from the consensus forecast of £588m.Investors were happy to hear Lloyds had returned a profit after recovering from a loss during the first half of 2020. The bank suspended its dividend earlier this year to preserve cash during the pandemic.Mortgage lenderThe UK’s biggest lender saw its mortgage business increase by £3.5bn from June 2020. This has been boosted by the the stamp duty holiday, introduced in July 2020, on all properties worth less than £500k until the end of March 2021.Since a home is the average person’s main asset, I would expect Lloyds’ mortgage business to grow until then. To stop the property market grinding to a halt next year, I believe the UK Chancellor may even extend the stamp duty holiday beyond March 2021 or implement other measures.Low interest ratesUK interest rates are low and I expect such levels are here to stay. Lloyds’ business model is very simple. It takes deposits in and lends money out. In order for Lloyds to be profitable it will lend out money at a higher rate than it pays on deposits.Interest rates on deposits are already at rock bottom levels, which means that Lloyds can’t push its cost of funding much lower. Loan rates are close to low levels and don’t have further to fall. During the third-quarter, Lloyds not only saw an increase in consumer spending but also in retail current account deposits. Its appears that despite low interest rates, people are putting money aside for a rainy day.If Lloyds is managing to survive when there is not much wiggle room on deposit and loan rates, I would expect the bank to be able to stumble its way through the pandemic.Financially strongSince the 2008 financial crisis, banks are now assessed on their Tier 1 Capital (CET1). This ratio dictates the bank’s financial strength, and hence the higher the value the better position it is in to weather the storm.Lloyds’ CET1 Ratio of 15.2% highlights its strength and gives the bank significant headroom above its ongoing target of 12.5% and the regulator’s requirement of 11%.My viewAs a long-term investor, I would add Lloyds shares to my portfolio. It is a long and bumpy road for Lloyds and I do not expect a dividend to be paid out any time soon. Despite this, I believe the bank can emerge from this crisis.

We were appointed to design a 4 bedroom house in Yong-in near Seoul. The client had previously lived in a nearby ‘high-rise’ development, and keen to live in a house that providing more space for his children.Save this picture!SchemeThrough our design we wanted to address the lack of interaction present between the family members. The dynamic of people spending more time isolated in their rooms watching TV or working say, was not specific to our Client’s family, but becoming more reflective of modern family living. This leads to a lack of communication and sharing within a family.Save this picture!© Andy HwangOur design intention was to create a house that provided the family with independent space, combined with a strong focus on shared areas. The circulation space would provide the basis of this concept as these areas are used by all members of the house to access the ‘independent rooms’.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!1st Floor PlanThe circulation space provided a traditional corridor but also became the living room, dining room, kitchen and study, with no walls or partitions dividing the areas. In between these areas, we positioned the ‘independent boxes’ which provided the 4 bedrooms. In order to access these rooms a user first has to pass through the open plan circulation and living areas.Save this picture!© Andy HwangIn placing importance on having large circulation a living areas, and the number of required bedrooms, it provided a challenge to achieve this given the site constraints we had with regard to the volume of the building.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionTo overcome this challenge, we created a number of ‘layers’ of differing floor levels throughout the house. The ‘independent rooms’ in effect became stacked boxes around the circulation area and in the main, all accessed by a serious of steps. In total there are 8 different floor levels throughout the building, which gave name to the project as the ‘Layer House’. This layered approach provided a unique internal layout which further helped identify the open plan living areas from the private independent rooms, all linked together by the continuous circulation area which formed the core of the house.Save this picture!© Andy HwangExternally black clay bricks, which are more widely used in Korean houses, are used on the elevations where the circulation and living areas are internally. Patterned stacked bricks were used on the main font façade to bring in natural light to the main living room combined with floor to ceiling glass leading to the internal courtyard. Elsewhere a white stucco finish was applied on the elevations where the private independent rooms are positioned, with small square windows providing light to these rooms.  Save this picture!© Andy HwangUpper floors consists of secondary living room, family bedrooms, family library and family music room to be completely family oriented space, while the ground floor is left more inviting to surrounding. This created the hierarchy of interaction where ground floor is trying to interact family with surrounding and upper floors between the family members.Save this picture!© Andy HwangProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Glasshouse / Glen Thomas ArchitectureSelected ProjectsHarim Group Headquarters Building / The Beck GroupSelected Projects Share ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/877103/the-layer-house-prime-architecture Clipboard CopyAbout this officeRubrics ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSouth KoreaPublished on August 12, 2017Cite: “The Layer House / Rubrics Architects” 11 Aug 2017.

At Societe Generale we’ve heard first-hand just how challenging it can be for young people to keep up with their education or continue to work after a cancer diagnosis and we’re committed to helping CLIC Sargent change this.” CLIC Sargent and Societe Generale have launched an education and employment grant for young cancer patients.The ‘Thrive Not Just Survive’ grant is open to young people aged between 14 and 24 who have been diagnosed with cancer and are looking to get an education or career ambition back on track.Societe Generale’s UK employees chose CLIC Sargent as its charity partner in March 2018 with the aim of raising £1 million over the next three years. The grant initiative is part of Societe Generale’s overall commitment towards supporting young people to access education and employment.Under the scheme, young people will be able to apply for up to £5,000 to support tuition or course fees, purchasing tools for an apprenticeship, or equipment or materials for a course such as a laptop or text books. They can apply for a gold (£3-5k), silver (£1-3k) or bronze grant (up to £1k) to suit their needs.Applications opened on Friday 19 October for three weeks and will be reviewed by a panel of CLIC Sargent and Societe Generale staff. Young people can choose to submit their application in a variety of ways including writing a letter, writing a business case or creating a video.Kate Lee, CEO of CLIC Sargent, said: “Cancer doesn’t just affect a young person’s health. Cancer can also hit a young person’s confidence, their finances and rob them of their independence. It can have a devastating impact on their ability to keep up with school or university when they are receiving treatment miles away from home, for months at a time. They may be forced to give up their job and put their career on hold.“That’s why it’s so important that we are there to support them to achieve their goals. This new grant will empower young people to feel more in control of their future and we can’t thank Societe Generale enough for their support to make this happen.”Sadia Ricke, UK Country Head at Societe Generale, said: Advertisement CLIC Sargent & Societe Generale launch education & employment grant for young cancer patients Melanie May | 24 October 2018 | Newslast_img read more

  • Brazil Considers Dropping Tariff on U.S. Ethanol Imports

An agriculture official from Brazil said Wednesday that  the decision could depend on the U.S. lifting a ban on fresh beef exports from Brazil. Brazil imposed the ethanol tax last year on U.S. imports that exceed a 600-million-liter annual quota to protect local producers. But, the tariff was also seen as a retaliation to the U.S. ban on shipments of fresh beef from Brazil following a food safety scandal.The ban on fresh beef exports could be lifted by April, according to Brazil, which claims the nation has submitted all materials requested by the United States to address concerns over beef exports. Brazil says it is waiting for the United States to decide whether the issue is resolved.last_img read more

The bill requires tobacco cessation medications, counseling, and assessments to be covered for a Medi-Cal patient.Smoking continues to be the leading preventable cause of the death in the United States” said Assembly Majority Floor Leader Chris Holden. “We have an opportunity to save lives and money with this bill.”“The American Heart Association is proud to co-sponsor AB 1696 to ensure that California’s most vulnerable will be able to access tobacco cessation programs, which have been shown to greatly increase the success rate for those trying to quit using tobacco,” said Dr. Diane Sobkowicz, Board President for the Sacramento division of the American Heart Association and Director of the Women’s Heart Program at Sutter Heart & Vascular Institute. “Our state spends $3.5 billion each year treating tobacco-related diseases through Medi-Cal. Studies have shown that every $1 spent on cessation program costs results in $3 in medical savings, a return on investment that would substantially reduce our state’s tobacco-related medical expenditures.”California is traditionally viewed as a leader when it comes to regulating smoking and tobacco, but in 2015, the American Lung Association gave California an “F” score in the category of tobacco prevention control and spending, and a “D” in the category of access to cessation services. They specifically recommend expanding access to tobacco cessation treatments and services for Medi-Cal recipients.“California used to be a leader in tobacco control with programming that supported a healthier lifestyle, but with tobacco companies outspending the California Tobacco Control Program 15 to 1, more work needs to be done,” said Holden.

Required fields are marked * Public Safety Pasadena Man Admits to Manslaughter for Accidentally Shooting Friend to Death By BRIAN DAY Published on Thursday, July 30, 2020 | 5:53 pm A Pasadena man received an eight-year prison sentence Wednesday after being convicted of fatally shooting a friend while recklessly handling a gun, authorities said.Deleon Jackson, 25, of Pasadena, pleaded no contest to a count of involuntary manslaughter, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Ricardo Santiago said. A murder charge initially filed against Jackson was dropped and he was immediately sentenced to eight years in state prison.Jackson shot and killed 27-year-old Eric Holloway in the early morning hours of Aug. 7, 2017, in the 1000 block of East Maple Street, according to prosecutors and Pasadena police officials. He fled from the scene but was found and arrested later the same day.First responders found Holloway lying in the street bleeding, police said in a written statement.“Paramedics responded and transported the victim to a local hospital in grave condition,” according to the statement. “The victim later succumbed to his injury at the hospital.”“During the next 17 hours, Pasadena Detectives conducted a non-stop, exhaustive investigation in dogged pursuit of the identity and arrest of homicide suspect Jackson,” according to the statement.The investigation determined Jackson did not shoot Holloway on purpose, but accidentally fired a gun while showing it to him and “grossly mishandling” it, Pasadena police Lt. Jesse Carrillo said. Detectives found no evidence the shooting was intentional.Santiago said the evidence indicated “the defendant believed the gun was unloaded, but failed to confirm it prior to pulling the trigger. He then attempted to cover up/hide his involvement.”An autopsy determined Holloway died from a gunshot wound to the head and the death was ruled a homicide, according to Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner records.Wednesday’s plea came during what was scheduled to be a pre-trial conference in the Pasadena branch of Los Angeles County Superior Court.

A support unit from Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS) was also in attendance.At its peak there were over 40 fire-firefighters engaged in fire-fighting operations with seven pumping appliances and a water tanker. The fire was eventually brought under control at approximately 11.00pm and at that stage the fire-fighters had managed to save the main warehouse building and a private dwelling house that was also within the site. Most of the damage was contained to the outdoor storage area.A reduced crew remained on-site over night to monitor the situation and continue to dampen down the remaining smouldering waste materials. Notwithstanding the significant damage to the property there was no injuries reported during the incident.The operation was stood down just after 6am on Sunday morning.
