My last call on BT shares was spot on. Here’s my view on the stock now

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! 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… The last time I covered BT (LSE: BT.A) shares, I noted that, considering its recent performance, one might benefit from buying the stock. It looked to me as if the market’s view of the business was far too pessimistic.The group’s underlying fundamentals, I noted, weren’t as bad as the share price seemed to suggest. Since that article was published, almost exactly a month ago, the stock has risen in value.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…I think this could be just the start of a big move higher for BT shares. BT shares: Improving outlook This week, BT published its figures for the first half of 2020. Management also put out its projections for the company’s full-year figures.The group now expects earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) to be between £7.3bn and £7.5bn in the current fiscal year. That’s down from £7.9bn last year. For the firm’s first-half as a whole, revenue fell 8% to £10.6bn. These figures aren’t too good, but they’re much better than the market was expecting. The numbers suggest the firm’s EBITDA will fall 8% year-on-year. By comparison, BT shares have fallen around 50% year-on-year. In my opinion, these figures don’t make much sense. Yes, the group does have some problems and revenues are under pressure. However, the company remains the largest telecommunications business in the UK, and it’s making tremendous progress in reducing costs and rolling out new technology. The company reduced overall costs by £352m in the first half of its fiscal year. A lower-cost base should help BT recover faster when the economic recovery really starts to gain traction. The organisation is aiming to reduce costs by £1bn a year by 2023, and £2bn by 2025. The company also plans to resume dividends next year. Management is initially targeting a dividend of 7.7p per share. That would give BT shares a prospective dividend yield of 7.7%. Risks aheadThe group’s better-than-expected financial performance is only one part of the puzzle. BT is facing several other headwinds which could weigh on growth in the years ahead. These include rising competition in the company’s core broadband and pay-tv markets, as well as elevated pension and net debt levels. Nonetheless, while these factors shouldn’t be ignored, it looks to me as if many of the concerns facing the business are already baked into the share price. What investors aren’t prepared for, in my opinion, is a better-than-expected performance from the business. As such, if the group does manage to get its house in order, I think BT shares could produce large returns from current levels.And, in the meantime, investors will be paid to wait. The stock’s prospective 7.7% dividend yield is around double the market average, and extremely attractive in the current interest rate environment. Overall, I’d still buy BT shares for the long haul at current levels.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

England v Barbarians: The Preview

New boy: Wasps wing Christian Wade is making his senior England debut at Twickenham on SundayBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorTHIS IS the strongest team England have put out for this fixture for many a year, with plenty of familiar faces from the Six Nations in the startling line-up. They will want to start building momentum for the South Africa tour with a good win at Twickenham, but the Barbarians are not short of talent themselves.Fresh facesChristian Wade is set to make his debut for a senior England side and this should be just the type of game for the Wasps wing to show his wares. Barbarians games tend to be fairly open – perfect for Wade to use his fancy footwork and lightening pace to great effect.It will also be interesting to see how Tom Johnson and Carl Fearns fare in the back row. They have been in good form for their clubs Exeter and Bath respectively, but they face an experienced Baa-Baas back row in Ernst Joubert, John Beattie and Akapusi Qera, so expect a fierce battle at the contact area.Centre stage: Baa-Baas’ Mike TindallKey battlesBen Foden is up against one of world rugby’s most experienced players ever in Mils Muliaina. Both men like to counter-attack from deep and the crowd will be hoping to see plenty of that.Mike Tindall will have a big point to prove as he lines up for the Baa-Baas against England’s centre pairing of Brad Barritt and Owen Farrell. That trio are sure to be dishing out some brutal hits, but it’s the fourth centre – Casey Laulala – who is likely to be the biggest threat in attack. The Kiwi is a great reader of the game, picks lovely angles and has the ability to put players through holes with his soft hands.The England front row face a stern test. The Baa-Baas have two World Cup winners in their front row in captain John Smit and prop John Afoa, and their triumvirate is completed by another ex-All Black Neemia Tialata. If England can gain parity at the set-piece, it will certainly bode well for the physical South Africa tour that awaits, particularly as their first-choice props Dan Cole and Alex Corbisiero are missing. Pointing the way: Stuart LancasterGoal settingOne of the criticisms of England during the Six Nations was their limited attacking game. This fixture presents a perfect chance to develop that area of their game. Baa-Baas matches tend to have a lot of broken-field play and the balmy weather means both sides will have good conditions for running rugby.The pace of England’s back three is significant against a more ageing Baa-Baas trio, so the challenge for Charlie Hodgson is to get the ball to them in space. Then the Twickenham crowd should be cheering a few England tries.VerdictStuart Lancaster is taking this game seriously and I think he’s going to be repaid with a 12-point win.ENGLAND v BARBARIANS, TWICKENHAM, SUNDAY 27 MAY, 2.30pm, Live on Sky Sports NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The Tree House was developed in response to the mother of a busy family who in finding herself reliant on a wheelchair was also finding herself increasingly confined to a single room.Her home is a pair of small grade II listed 1830’s brick weavers cottages, joined together in the 1970’s as part of the GLC homesteading scheme.  The ground floor rooms of the two cottages are on different levels and both a half storey above the garden behind.Save this picture!© Johan DehlinThe garden was reached via steps from an opportunistic scaffold verandah on chunky concrete columns – the legacy of the previous owner, a builder.  From here our client would spend time looking out from beneath leafy vines across the unruly tree and  flower filled  gardens, which due south all connected together with openings for neighbouring families to pop in and out.Save this picture!Floor PlanOur brief was to find a way of connecting the original ground floor rooms and to provide a new master bedroom and wet room at ground floor with direct access to the garden whilst keeping the wonderful informality of the existing family home. We wanted the accessibility requirements to be a positive architectural driver making the house better than it had been previously. To this end we re-centred the whole house around the garden.Save this picture!© Johan DehlinThe tree house winds down around the trees, cinching itself in to get around the sumac which sits centrally and breathing out again to accommodate a generous bedroom and bathroom below the eucalyptus. The bedroom  faces onto a deck into the garden, it looks back to the house where the old concrete columns have been re-used to support a new timber framed glazed verandah, this ramps between the two existing ground floor rooms and connects to the tree house.  The existing kitchen, people moving through the house and even the street beyond are all glimpsed from the bedroom. The dark timber painted frame of the verandah seems to recede visually allowing one to see past it to the original brickwork of the cottages rear walls.Save this picture!AxonometricThe new construction is reversible, meeting requirements for listed building consent, it is timber framed on timber foundations and clad in reclaimed Jarrah skimmings. Internally it is simply detailed with exposed timber joists, softwood boarding and plywood floor all painted white to provide a softly textured backdrop to the many framed views of trees from within. All ground floor rooms and the garden are fully wheelchair accessible. The roses and jasmine will be encouraged to climb back over the timber south facing elevation of the tree house as it once did the south facing garden fence.Note: this article was originally published on 4 April, 2014Save this picture!© Johan DehlinSave this picture!© Johan DehlinProject gallerySee allShow lessPleated House / Megowan ArchitecturalSelected ProjectsSmall House / UNEMORI ARCHITECTSSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this office6a ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionDabas3D ModellingRefurbishmentWoodIcebergHousesUnited KingdomPublished on April 14, 2019Cite: “Tree House / 6a Architects” 14 Apr 2019.

WWP presidential candidates say: ‘Solidarity with anti-racist, pro-worker occupation of Duke University! Carry the struggle forward to victory!’

first_imgApril 6 –The Workers World Party 2016 Moorehead-Lilly presidential campaign sends our solidarity to the occupation of the administration building  currently underway at Duke University in Durham, N.C. At the time of this writing, the occupation by nine students to protest racist attacks on Black and Brown university workers and to support workers’ organizing on campus for justice — including higher wages of at least $15/hour — is entering its sixth day, with no signs of backing down.On April 1, several hundred workers and students held a demonstration on campus that began the occupation. Since then, hundreds have rallied around the clock outside the administration building. An encampment of dozens of tents has been set up on the lawn to hold rallies, teach-ins, meetings and other activities to build and deepen the base of support for the occupation and to safeguard from any attempts by university administrators and police to break it up.The protest stemmed from recent revelations that Tallman Trask – a white Duke University Executive Vice President – hit Shelvia Underwood, an African-American who works as a university parking attendant, with his car. Before fleeing the scene, Trask hurled a racial epithet at Underwood, who suffered physical injuries requiring medical attention. Trask and other university administrators conspired to cover this incident up, along with numerous other reports by Black and Brown parking attendants and other campus workers of rampant racism. Two of the demands of the occupation are reparations for Underwood and a full and transparent investigation into the racism in campus departments.Already, the occupation has scored two major victories based on the demands put forward: a public apology by Trask and unconditional amnesty for the nine occupiers.The occupation at Duke University comes amidst a wave of militant protests against racism on campuses sweeping the U.S., which is part of the broader Black Lives Matter movement. From massive walkouts in response to racist police murders; to the strikes and protests against racism on campus at the University of Missouri that led to the resignation of the chancellor there; and much more, protests at universities against racism, white supremacy and bigotry have been spreading from coast to coast. This must continue, along with showing our solidarity with the struggle against the campus-wide epidemic of sexual violence against women and anti-lesbian-gay- bisexual-transgender-queer bigotry.These demonstrations and building occupations happening today carry on the long legacy of the Black freedom struggle on campuses. During the height of the Black Liberation movement, many universities were rocked by protests and occupations led by Black students to win a number of important anti-racist victories — including an occupation in 1969 of the very building that Duke students have taken over now.Racism and national oppression are essential for the capitalist system in order to amass vast wealth for the small class of rulers by exploiting the labor of the masses of society, the workers.  We fight for revolutionary socialism — a system where the workers and the oppressed run society and put the resources we create to meet our own needs.To the occupiers and the many hundreds engaged in this struggle: Your courage, militancy and steadfast commitment to carry the struggle through to victory — and the principled unity and solidarity that has been built between workers and students — is setting an example for the broader movement. We salute you!We salute the courageous workers who spoke out against racism in defiance of those who want to silence them. Some of the blue-collar workers at Duke are unionized, and the non-tenure-track faculty recently won a union. We stand with the workers until they are all unionized across campus and until justice is won by those fired under racist conditions.The many peoples’ struggles for justice around the U.S. are with you and are watching closely how these events unfold. We are ready to mobilize in your support and defense, as needed. Carry the struggle forward to victory!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Classic Apple Tart Tatin

first_imgWhatsApp Print Email You have all heard of them, cooked them and indeed loved them, but making a tart tatin is not as daunting as it possibly has become or should ever be. As a classic, it should be one that is in everyone’s repertoire. It’s actually quite easy and straight forward, the flipping at the end is the only time where nerves might set in.So, here’s what to do to cook the perfect tart tatin for me.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WHAT YOU NEED5 medium sized apples, peeled, cored and cut into wedgesSheets of Puff pastry – yes shop bought is perfect as I would not expectanyone to make their own – I did years ago and vowed never to return.50g butter50ml water200g sugarpinch of saltA beaten egg to glazeWHAT TO DOPlace the sugar water and butter in a heavy based pan and I find that if the butter is at room temperature, you can spread it out more evenly over the sugar.Arrange the peeled, cored and sliced apples on top of the sugar in a neat fashion and make sure that all of the sugar mix underneath is covered with the apples.Place the pan on the heat and allow the sugar mix to melt and bubbles and this will take about five minutes but be careful about the apple slices moving. Trick is to not have the sugar bubbling too vigorously underneath.Then, remove from the heat and take a sheet of the puff pastry, roughly cut it to size and place it on top of the apples.Brush the pastry with some of the beaten egg and place in an oven for 20 minutes at 200degC.After 15 minutes, remove the tart and brush again with the remainder of the egg and put back in for the last five minutes.Remove it from the oven and allow to cool for five minutes – this will take the initial sting out of the heat of the sugar.Now comes the fun bit – take a plate that is larger than the pan and cover it – invert the plate and carefully allow the tart to release from the pan and transfer on to the plate.Allow to cool for five more minutes and serve warm with creme fraiche or a favourite ice-cream.
