Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” FTSE 100 precious metals miner Glencore (LSE:GLEN) has endured a rocky few years with regulatory issues, price wars and hard working conditions. Despite falling 28% year-to-date, the Glencore share price is up over 57% since the stock market crash in March.In December 2017, Glencore’s share price was peaking above £4 and shareholders were excitedly cashing in. But around this time, it began a long decline, which finally fell off a cliff in February/March this year. Since the 2020 stock market crash, however, the Glencore share price has rebounded 57%. At around £1.70 a share, it is a far cry from previous price highs, but it shows signs of investor belief and recoverability.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…Criminal investigationsMining stocks are an unpopular sector to own, both for the risk associated with them and for ethical reasons. Mining shares are notoriously volatile because the demand for their resources fluctuates, and the places excavated are often situated in parts of the world where corruption and hostile conditions exist. Glencore mines its cobalt in Africa and has endured many political and reputational hurdles in recent years. In June 2019, 40 people tragically lost their lives in an accident at its Kamoto copper mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).On Friday Glencore announced it is facing yet another investigation, this time from the Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland.  Specifically stating “for failure to have the organizational measures in place to prevent alleged corruption in the DRC”. This is Glencore’s fourth regulatory investigation in under two years and is not good news for its share price.In addition to this, the US-China trade war has been dragging on for two years and looks set to continue. This weighs heavily on demand for natural resources (and the Glencore share price). Mining companies have faltered with the challenging economic backdrop affecting their operating costs. Glencore is no different as the trade war has caused the demand for cobalt and copper to wane. However, it has clients on both sides, with Tesla in the US and a four-year partnership to supply Cobalt to China’s GEM Co through to 2024. Is the Glencore share price too cheap to ignore?The coronavirus pandemic has caused havoc with industries around the world and mining is no different. The market for natural resources has declined and recovery will take time. However, some of Glencore’s offerings, namely cobalt and copper, are likely to be necessary for a long time to come.Glencore is a world leader in cobalt mining, which is used in the making of electric car batteries, laptops, and smartphones — all products with increasing demand. It also mines for nickel, zinc, lead, aluminium, gold, and silver, along with extracting oil and gas.Tesla, the electric car company controlled by Elon Musk, already signed a contract with Glencore for its cobalt and last week extended this. It now intends to use cobalt from Glencore’s mines in the DRC to make lithium-ion batteries at Tesla’s Gigafactories in Berlin and Shanghai. This is great news for the Glencore share price.The regulatory concerns shouldn’t be ignored and if you buy shares in the firm, you should know the risks involved. I think the Glencore share price will rise, but it will be a volatile journey. Although the share price looks cheap, there are less volatile stocks available (I like SSE, for instance).center_img Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

3 moves Warren Buffett has made recently

first_img Warren Buffett is the greatest investor of all time. Not only has he amassed a fortune of around $80bn from investing, he’s also generated huge, market-beating returns for his investors over the long run.Given Buffett’s phenomenal investing track record, it can pay to keep an eye on his movements. With that in mind, here’s a look at three moves he’s made recently.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…Buffett is still building his cash pileThe first move from Buffett I want to highlight is that he’s continued to build his cash pile. At the end of June, his cash pile stood at a whopping $147bn, up from $137bn at the end of March. Part of this increase was the result of the sale of his airline stocks earlier in the year.My take here? Buffett is still not seeing a great deal of value in the market. Clearly, he’s waiting for a better opportunity to buy. Having that amount of cash on hand will give him a huge war chest to go out and buy high-quality assets if share prices fall again in the near future.Buying a bank stockWhile he may not be seeing a ton of value, Buffett has been doing a little bit of buying. In recent months, he’s bought a large amount of Bank of America stock. In the space of a little over two weeks, he spent $2.1bn on the bank stock.Like most bank stocks, Bank of America has underperformed this year as a result of the coronavirus. Year to date, its share price is down about 25%. Buffett clearly sees value after the recent share price decline.I see this trade as an interesting contrarian move. Banks are heavily out of favour right now, due to the high level of economic uncertainty. However, if the global economy strengthens, their share prices could rebound.If UK investors are looking to replicate this Buffett trade, they’ve plenty of options. Shares in Lloyds Bank, Barclays, and HSBC have all taken a beating this year and could be worth a look. That said, it could be a while before UK bank stocks bounce back.Sticking to his ‘circle of competence’Finally, Buffett has also recently struck a $10bn deal to buy Dominion Energy’s natural gas transmission and storage business. This is his largest deal since his takeover of Precision Castparts in 2016. “We are very proud to be adding such a great portfolio of natural gas assets to our already strong energy business,” Buffett said in a press release.This strikes me as another contrarian move by the investing legend. While many investors are focused on the technology and healthcare sectors right now, Buffett is loading up on assets that are a little bit less exciting. In other words, he’s not getting caught up in the market hype.This is a classic ‘stick to what you know’ trade from Buffett.

FTSE 100 dividends have crashed in 2020. That’s why I’d buy dividend stocks now

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Alan Oscroft | Saturday, 24th October, 2020 A good few FTSE 100 companies have reduced or suspended their dividends in 2020. The banks are perhaps the best examples, under instruction from the PRA. I do think they’ll all come back in due course, but I hadn’t realised the scale of the devastation.According to Link Group, dividends in the UK almost halved in the third quarter. With a 49.1% fall to a total of £18bn, we saw the lowest Q3 dividend payment in the UK in the past decade. Almost two thirds of the companies listed on the London Stock Exchange are paying less for the quarter than a year previously. Still, the trend is softening a bit, after dividends fell by 57.2% in the second quarter.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…But what about FTSE 100 dividends specifically? The latest Q3 Dividend Dashboard from AJ Bell suggests that FTSE 100 dividends won’t suffer so badly this year. We should expect that, really, as it’s largely the reason dividend investors generally prefer the top index. The companies in it are larger and more mature, typically have longer track records of progressive payouts, and should be more resistant to short-term pressures.FTSE 100 more reliable?But even with the FTSE 100’s traditional superior safety and resilience, forecasts suggest total dividends will still fall by 24% in 2020. As it happens, that’s almost spot on the current year-to-date fall in the FTSE 100 itself. Coincidence? Probably not. It suggests to me that the pain is spread across all kinds of shares, both growth and dividend prospects.The expected drop in dividends represents a hefty £18bn less going into investors’ pockets this year. That could take a significant chunk out of income for those depending on it, and sizeably reduce the cash for others to reinvest. So what will I do about it?Well, for one thing, I can’t help wondering if some sort of FTSE 100 dividend reduction was perhaps inevitable anyway. In terms of cover by earnings, a lot of top dividends really have started to look a bit stretched in recent years. At the end of 2019, many popular dividends were only thinly covered. FTSE 100 dividend cover for the past couple of years has been hovering around 1.6 times to 1.7 times, and falling. That might look fine for an individual company. But the weakest in the index were significantly below that. And a scary number of them provided cover of significantly less than 1.5 times.Dividend crunchI think some sort of dividend crunch was probably coming. But company boards are usually loath to cut their dividends, or even slow their rate of growth. It upsets the big investment companies focused on their next quarterly performance figures, and that just won’t do.Now that we’ve had the 2020 cuts, we’re actually looking at forecast cover for the FTSE 100 of only around 1.4 to 1.5 times. That’s based on this years much-reduced earnings forecasts, mind, so I’m not too worried. When earnings pick up again, companies can restart dividends from today’s reduced levels. And that should hopefully mean more reliable long-term income. My strategy is to invest for tomorrow’s dividends today, while they’re cheap.

The internal refurbishing of a farm barn, so that a new generation of farmers can live there, grows to the point of becoming this zoning ordinance project. Such process will lead us to think about the set of huts, sheds, walls and paths which have settled in country houses through the years, and now we need to understand before we work on them, as there has been so little, maybe nothing, done in vain. A set of parts which have shaped the area, corners and tiny squares with the romantic essence of small towns.Save this picture!Floor PlanBy analyzing the structures which are to be found around the country house, some still standing and others already blurred, we lay out an intervention in the farmland based on demolishing, strengthening, and building new parts. Furthermore, the intervention must allow us to settle a plan for a warehouse-workshop, with changing rooms for the work at the farm and an on-site room for a new biomass boiler.Save this picture!© Marc Torra FerrerThe design of the animals and equipment sheds to be demolished, just like the structures to be strengthened -some wall fences and terraces, as well as two huts, one of them attached to the house- help us to shape a half-buried discontinuous relief which we attach to the existing terrace.Save this picture!© Marc Torra FerrerJust by the home entrance, the new building meets the rest of actors in the play: some new-born walls, the courtyard where there used to be the former well, the bridge, a set of cross sights of the animals and crops… The tiny square in town. The garden roof at the higher level starts a lawn which underlines the hut, at the same time that turns itself in to the living space in the barn, all across the bridge.

As an environmentalist and passionate walker, I have a deep passion for the 60,000 street trees that grace our city. As a member of the City’s Urban Forestry Commission, I consistently voted to deny tree removal of healthy trees. As a long-term member of the Design Commission, it was common-place to send developers back to the drawing board to rework plans to minimize tree removals. On the City Council, I strongly backed the City’s long-time policy of refusing to allow removal of the South Lake trees. Nevertheless, after a lawsuit was filed by the landlord, and after consulting with our attorneys, the Council reluctantly agreed to settle the case and allow removal.You might ask how an ardent tree lover could support such a settlement? The answer is simple: Losing in court would not only have cost us these three trees but likely have resulted in significant financial damages to the City. More importantly, it could also have meant a damaging legal precedent for our entire Tree Protection Ordinance city-wide.I cannot share the details of confidential conversations with City lawyers. But the odds we faced were well-summarized in a letter of November 1 (now public), from the landlord. Bruce Meyer: “…the judge presiding over our case self-identified as a lover of trees and involved in tree preservation efforts in her own neighborhood. Nonetheless, she immediately saw that these trees unquestionably were too large, in the wrong location and needed to be replaced. Similarly, a different judge to whom we were assigned for a settlement conference looked at the trees and stated that they were completely out of proportion to the street and the neighborhood, dangerous and should be replaced.” Third party experts further substantiated many of the landlord’s claims about property damage and public safety risks.Given the legal situation, I and the majority of the City Council decided a settlement was the “least bad” option available to us. Afterward, I continued to urge the landlord to consider another solution. Sadly, he declined. While I very much regret the loss of these three trees, I do not regret having refused to put at risk the foundational rules we rely on to preserve and protect all trees across the City.
