US election results: here’s how I’m investing in the FTSE 100 right now

first_img Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Jonathan Smith You may have stayed up all night watching the US election results come in. Or like myself, you may have slept on it and woken up early, only to find that the results still haven’t been fully declared yet. Even though both sides are optimistic about winning, we may have to wait for several days before we have a conclusive result. Some key states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania could take a long time to count all the postal ballots. In the meantime, the FTSE 100 has already started to react. It is currently trading just below 5,800 points, up 0.3% on the day. This doesn’t tell the full story as first thing this morning in the futures market the index traded down at 5,650 points. The whipsaw movement is likely to continue in the short term. So what opportunities to invest have the US election results thrown up?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…US results impacting the UK marketRemember that stock markets around the world are very correlated these days. The fact that a lot of the FTSE 100 constituents trade in the US, or have indirect suppliers abroad, make the US election results relevant. Given that things are remarkably still too close to call, some stocks are being sold off as a precaution.For example, oil giants BP and Royal Dutch Shell are both down over 1% already in morning trading. Given that a Biden victory will entail his large renewable energy pledge, this would be negative for both firms. Right now, I’d pass on picking up the oil stocks even with the sell-off. I think the election results are too close to call. However, if you do believe Trump will win the US election, then this could be a good potential buy, given his support for this sector.Taking advantage of irrational movesI’m keeping a close eye on investing in stocks that aren’t directly correlated with the US election results. You might think that doesn’t make sense! Here’s the point — we could easily see a broad stock market sell-off that’ll impact all stocks, regardless of whether it’s rational or not. For example, back in March we saw pretty much all FTSE 100 stocks fall in value, even though some were able to perform well. So if we see a similar sell-off, I’m looking to buy some stocks that become mispriced.I think both Barclays and Lloyds Banking Group are good value plays for long-term investors. So if we see a post-election market sell-off, I’ll be adding these into my basket. I’m also keen to buy Boohoo group again, and will use a sell-off to do so. In my opinion, falls in the share prices for these firms would be an overreaction, given the lack of sensitivity they have to who is the sitting President.Staying patientElections are a time when assets can make irrational moves in the short term. It may be frustrating and sometimes confusing trying to make sense of some of the movements. But I’d stay patient as a long-term investor and aim to take advantage where I can.

Daunay / Atelier du Pont

This large block of 8 flats merges smoothly into the heterogeneity of the Impasse Daunay cul-de-sac. Facing the street, the textured glass skin covering the facades pays discreet homage to the glass walls of the artists’ studios in this Père Lachaise neighbourhood. The choice of glass, used here for the facade covering, parapets, transparent partitions for common areas or simply as windows, has an aesthetic appeal in its uniformity of material and stark simplicity in keeping with the project’s general low key approach: just 8 housing units in a little cul-de-sac. Glass being also the most durable material of all, this choice reflects therefore the project’s environmental credentials. Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyRecommended ProductsDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedBut on taking a closer look, you can see a subtle interplay of illumination and reflections. From the façade’s plain printed glass panels to the clear glazing of the opening windows in the rooms and common areas, and the textured glass in the fixed windows on the landings, the materials vary according to the use and the protected areas in order to maximise the amount of natural light while preserving the occupants’ privacy. The windows are naturally made of clear glass and can be opened for maintenance purposes. On the courtyard side, the retified pine cladding extends the ambiance of the neighbouring condominium‘s garden. Sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the town, this open-work wood facade is more ‘sensitive’. The thermal insulation muffles the noise and reduces echoing in the courtyard. The pine used is certificated and comes from local sources. It is treated at very high temperatures to extract moisture, and therefore requires no maintenance. Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe orange colour of the communal areas has the effect of highlighting the glass’s dominant hard characteristic. The systematic nature of this monochrome look is counter-balanced by the vivid brightness of the common areas. In the street, the colour is relatively unobtrusive and is visible only in the entrance. Beneath its quiet exterior, this apartment block sets the stage for a modern revolution: it contains the very first housing units of the Paris ‘climate plan’. The environmental approach is this project’s corner-stone based on:research into the optimum layout of the living spaces; thermal performance: communal gas heating is provided by a condensing boiler and hot water by solar panels Save this picture!© Luc Boegly‘CLIMATE PLAN’ ADOPTION IN MID-CONSTRUCTION The history of these apartments in the Impasse Daunay is rather unusual. When atelier du pont was entrusted with the project management of this block of 8 apartments, the aim of SIEMP was to construct a building to THPE (Very high energy performance) standards. During construction, SIEMP asked atelier du pont if it would be possible to have the project comply with the objectives of the climate plan and achieve an annual energy consumption of less than 50 Whep/m2. Thanks to PLAN02, atelier du pont was able to produce the necessary designs in-house and thus react quickly without delaying the work in progress. Hypothetical performance simulations were carried out for the facades, roofing and fixtures. These showed that the BBC label (Low energy consumption building) and the ‘climate plan’ were objectives achievable by improving the quality of the outer shell and increasing production of renewable energy (use of solar power). Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe relative ease with which the climate plan was followed can be explained by a general environmental awareness of the project’s architectural principles, including: the choice of high compactness, its solid look of an undivided large old townhouse the choice of natural illumination of walkways and service areas the choice of natural illumination of all rooms in each apartment Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThese initial choices were dictated by the desire to give this building real user quality (bright, well-ventilated and well-lit double-oriented apartments, staircases and common areas lit by natural light) and to rely on the enhancement of these common areas to encourage the occupants’ greater involvement in saving resources and their ‘proper’ use of the premises. The Impasse Daunay example strengthens atelier du pont and PLAN02 in their conviction that environmental qualities and user qualities are intimately linked. Together they generate social value and guarantee real project sustainability.-Save this picture!plan 01Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Hollywood Sign HotelArticlesNew Architecture for New Maribor Art Gallery Competition ResultsArticlesProject locationAddress:Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

We noticed that the majority of people of working age had left the village. The remaining inhabitants are mostly grandparents and grandchildren; their struggle to regain social sustainability in their way of living is one of the many challenges rural villages are facing. The project was driven by the intuition that a moderate gentrification could eventually lead to a modest prosperity for some of the remaining villagers.Save this picture!PlanHowever, developing rural areas, where economic development has lagged behind that of China’s booming cities is may be less about preserving tradition and maybe more about reviving, because (tradition) it’s not really present. Our intention was to refurbish an unoccupied dwelling, which some might argue was not worth preserving, in order to rediscover the identity it could bring about in the context of its village setting. With its collapsed perimeter walls and the overgrown grounds the neglected property had become a ‘white spot on the village map’ where vacancy is a symbol of depopulation. Save this picture!© Boris ShiuThe farmer who had originally built the house in the early seventies was a frequent visitor during the construction phase and we were happy to hear that he ‘approved’ of our interventions to the house being seemingly happy with the final outcome.Save this picture!© Christian TaeubertProject gallerySee allShow lessWooden Office / AB CHVOYASelected ProjectsMarcos L.

Inheritance Tax rise could cost charities dear

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 3 December 2014 | News Wills and tax law specialists Moore Blatch have warned that if the Government raises the Inheritance Tax nil-rate band from £325,000 to £1 million in today’s Autumn Statement, many people will be put off from leaving money to charity in their Will.At present, if an estate is worth over £325,000 when you die, Inheritance Tax may be due. However, any gifts made to a qualifying charity either during an individual’s lifetime or in their Will, are exempt from Inheritance Tax.In addition, if you leave 10% or more of your estate to a qualifying charity, any Inheritance Tax due from the estate may be paid at a reduced rate of 36% instead of 40%. This can mean that a gift to a charity can cost nothing to the beneficiaries.Moore Blatch has warned that the charities most likely to be affected are those that receive significant annual legacies. According to Charities Aid Foundation, the five charities in England and Wales that received the largest amounts of legacy income in the year to October 2014 were:1. Cancer Research UK: £142,456,7072. RNLI: £101,457,1573. RSPCA: £67,671,0004. Macmillan Cancer Support: £51,219,0005. The National Trust: £44,688,000Smaller charities are of course not immune.Carla Brown, Partner and Head of Wills, Tax and Trusts, Moore Blatch commented:“Smaller, local charities also benefit greatly from money left to them in the Will of kind benefactors. Although an IHT nil-rate band increase to £1 million seems unlikely in view of the continued deficit in the country’s finances, any increase would almost certainly have an impact on people’s propensity to leave money to charity. We would urge anyone who wants to give money to a charity to make the appropriate provision in their Will.”Photo: legacy by Marekuliasz on Shutterstock.com Advertisement Inheritance Tax rise could cost charities dearlast_img read more

Families Honored at Statehouse for their Agricultural Heritage

first_imgFayette Grimes/Vollmer By Gary Truitt – Mar 27, 2014 Larrison 1840 Indiana Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann and Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Ted McKinney presented 31 families with a Hoosier Homestead Award in recognition of their commitment to Indiana agriculture. “There’s no doubt in our minds that agriculture plays a vital role in Indiana’s economy, but we also need to be reminded of the men and women behind the industry,” Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann said.  “The families honored today have persevered through trial and bounty to steward the earth and produce food for our state, nation and world.”To be named a Hoosier Homestead, farms must be owned by the same family for more than 100 consecutive years and consist of more than 20 acres or produce more than $1000 of agricultural products per year.  The Hoosier Homestead program is administered by the Indiana State Department of Agriculture. “The families celebrated here today remind us of what makes Indiana agriculture great,” Director McKinney said.  “Agriculture is not solely about producing food, fiber and fuel for a growing population.  It is also about preserving a way of life that values hard-work, integrity and community.  The Hoosier Homestead Award Program celebrates just that and ISDA is proud to oversee this awards program.”The 31 families honored at Thursday’s ceremony join more than 5000 Hoosier Homestead farms.  Annual recognition ceremonies are held in March during National Agriculture Month at the Indiana Statehouse and in August at the Indiana State Fair.

Schlossnagle looks to Gary Patterson for inspiration with TCU facing elimination

(Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.com) World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Facebook ReddIt Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ First pitch between TCU and Louisville is at 7 p.m. Thursday at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska. Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ Whoever Schlossnagle decides not to choose for Thursday’s game would be the starter of Friday’s game if TCU manages to defeat Louisville. In the meantime, he isn’t worried about pouting from either pitcher.“The beauty of it is they’re both chomping at the bit to start, but they’re all about the team, so they’ll be fine with whatever happens,” Schlossnagle said. “Easiest way to do it is to win one more that way they’ll both get a start.”As for the bullpen, Schlossnagle said, “everybody who threw in the first game” should be available, except starting pitcher Jared Janczak, who wouldn’t pitch again this season unless TCU can continue its season into Saturday.Horned Frog lineup looking for more production from the top While the Horned Frog’s bottom half of the batting order powered the team past Texas A&M Tuesday, TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle knows it’ll need its premier players to be at their best to continue their season past its elimination game against Louisville Thursday.Hitters five through nine in the TCU batting order totaled six hits, one strikeout and three RBI’s against the Aggies Tuesday. Hitters one through four combined for only one hit, seven strikeouts and one RBI.“That’s the beauty of our team: our batting averages aren’t great, they’re not bad, but not great, so on any given days one of those guys could take off,” Schlossnagle said. “We’ve said since the beginning of the year if you had to flip our lineup upside down I’d be okay with it at least to start the season. Right now, maybe not, but they’re all so talented that any one of them can change the game with one swing, and thank goodness they did, which is why we’re still here.”While Schlossnagle said not everyone will be hitting well at the same time, the team needs more from its leadoff hitter, right fielder Austen Wade. Wade is 3-26 in the NCAA Tournament, drawing seven walks.“They’re making good pitches to him, and he’s pressing a little bit, so I might have a little talk with him today,” Schlossnagle said of Wade. “He’s still getting on base enough, but obviously for us to win against the two teams left in our bracket, we’re going to have to him at his best.”If the Horned Frogs want their dreams of bringing home a national championship to be realized, they’ll also need a little bit more from Skoug, who is 7-26 with 15 strikeouts in the NCAA Tournament. However, all seven of Skoug’s hits have been for extra bases: three doubles and four home runs.There’s also been an added challenge for Skoug in Omaha: the shift.When Skoug came up to bat Sunday with no one on base, Florida moved its third baseman to where the shortstop usually stands in between third and second base, its shortstop moved to where the second baseman would normally stand in between second and first, and its second baseman stood in shallow right field. When Skoug stepped up to the plate Tuesday against Texas A&M with runners on base, the Aggies also moved their second base man into right field, but its third baseman stood slightly closer to third base because of the potential for a runner to move to third.Teams align their infield this way against the All-American catcher because the scouting report reads that the majority of the left-handed hitting Skoug’s hits are pulled toward right field, the natural power area for lefties.“It’s happened to him before,” Schlossnagle said of Skoug facing shifts. “He goes in stretches where he gets pull-happy, and then he comes out of it and shoots balls to left field or over the fence to left field, which is just baseball, the ups, and downs of the season.” Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Twitter printWith a quarter of the 2017 College World Series field sent home, TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle looked to truism TCU head football coach Gary Patterson reiterates in the fall: “All we have to do is win by one.”Schlossnagle is left looking for inspiration with his team needing to win three more elimination games to advance to the College World Series finals.“I think as a coach you’re always looking for the positive, trying to come with the right thing to say to the guys, but you can’t get ahead of your self because the competition is so good,” Schlossnagle said. “It’s coachy. All hands on deck. One day at a time. To try to stick around here a little longer.”Schlossnagle needs not to look no further than the 2016 College World Series for a blueprint his team could replicate. After both the Horned Frogs and Oklahoma State won their first two games in Omaha, both eventual national champion Coastal Carolina and national runner-up Arizona climbed out of the loser’s bracket to reach the last round of the NCAA Tournament.But first, TCU needs to get past the Louisville Cardinals Thursday, who have their own version of a Luken Baker in Brendan McKay. The Cardinal first baseman and left-handed pitcher won the 2017 Dick Howser Trophy, given to the best college baseball player in the country, and was selected No. 4 overall by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2017 MLB Draft.“They’re an elite team, and I honestly think they’re the most physically talented team here from pitching to defense, athleticism, power, and that speed,” Schlossnagle said.If TCU can defeat the Cardinals, Florida remains in the national semifinals.“Florida is very elite on the mound, so it’s Division I baseball at the absolute highest level, and we’re one of those teams too, still standing,” Schlossnagle said.Lodolo or Traver: Schlossnagle undecided on who will pitch against LouisvilleStarting pitching, more often than not, is what determines who wins and loses in the College World Series with the difference between the remaining teams so razor thin.Up next to decide that will be either redshirt senior and right-hander Mitchell Traver or freshman southpaw Nick Lodolo.“It’s a decision between Nick and Mitchell, and I don’t know if there is a right or wrong answer for that,” Schlossnagle said. “In my mind, it’s always about winning the tournament and seeing what the best matchup is as we move forward.”When looking at the Louisville Cardinals’ lineup, it would seem that Lodolo would be better suited to take the mound.“They have a couple more left-handed hitters than Florida, who has a lot of righties, and they both run a lot so if I had to pick to stay left-handed, it would obviously be Nick,” Schlossnagle said. “Traver does a really good job with limiting the run game.”Louisville head coach Dan McDonnell believes Lodolo will be the TCU pitcher to square off against his team.“I’m assuming we’re facing the highest draft pick that went to college last year, and it’s a great opportunity,” McDonnell said in reference to Lodolo being selected 41st overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2016 MLB draft but choosing instead to come to TCU.Schlossnagle maintained that it’ll ultimately be himself making the final decision, taking McDonnell’s prediction in jest.“I’ll tell you what if Dan can pick my pitcher, I’ll go ahead and pick theirs,” Schlossnagle said.
