This FTSE 100 stock has soared 15% today. Can it last?

first_imgThis FTSE 100 stock has soared 15% today. Can it last? Paul Summers owns shares of Burberry. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Burberry. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images. Aside from those operating in the travel and leisure industries, few stocks are likely to be impacted more by the coronavirus outbreak than those in retail.With stores mostly empty and few bothered about looking their best working from home, clothing sellers are particularly vulnerable. Purchases of a discretionary nature can be delayed a lot longer than staples, such as food and hygiene products.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…Not that this appears to be bothering those buying shares of FTSE 100 stalwart Next (LSE: NXT) today following the release of its latest set of full-year numbers.Stress testTotal sales rose 3.3% to £4.36bn over the year to 26 January. As you might expect, online remained the star division with sales jumping just under 12% to £2.15bn. Store retail, once again, proved a drag, falling 5.3% to £1.85bn. All told, pre-tax profit came in 0.8% higher at £728.5m. This was slightly ahead of the £727m predicted by the company back in January as a result of “better than expected” full-price sales that month. Is all this relevant to the current situation? Arguably not. Investors look forwards and, right now, the outlook looks considerably less rosy than it once did. Nevertheless, it looks like Next will be able to weather the storm better than most of its peers. Having performed a stress test on its business, the £5bn-cap announced today it could “comfortably sustain” a fall of 25% in annual full-price sales (equivalent to a £1bn loss) without going over its current borrowing facilities. That should give those already holding huge comfort during these troubled times. They may also be reassured by management’s belief that, pandemic or not, it could not afford to neglect transforming the business in response to structural changes in the sector. This, it stressed, would be what determines its “longer term destiny.” This kind of thinking is exactly what investors need to hear right now. Next is undoubtedly a classy business. That said, I can’t help thinking today’s boost to the share price will prove (very) temporary. It goes on my watchlist for now. Sales tankAnother clothing-related stock suffering as a result of the coronavirus outbreak is luxury fashion brand Burberry (LSE: BRBY). Today, it revealed trading had “deteriorated significantly” since its last update. Despite seeing some improvement in China, like-for-like sales in its stores elsewhere had fallen between 40% and 50% over the last six weeks.With roughly 40% of sites now closed, with more expected in the new few days, things are likely to get worse before they get better. Indeed, Burberry already expects retail sales to drop by 30% in the fourth quarter of its financial year.  To reduce pressure on the business, the company has announced it’s in the process of “renegotiating rents, restricting travel and reducing discretionary spending.” Like Next, it also sought to reassure investors that it had “significant financial headroom” for dealing with the disruption caused by the virus. Seeing the value of my relatively small holding tumble over recent weeks hasn’t been easy. However, I do expect this quality brand — like Next — to recover its mojo in time.The road ahead will be bumpy but I’ll continue to drip-feed my money into the stock over the months ahead.

Outlying contexts surrounded by city border highways, fields, malls… require consistent answers. These are places where any action demands the same audacity, for example, a leaning building.

Every unit has a room which crosses from side to side, opening simultaneously to both of them. We seek for dwelling with blurred frontiers between spaces, where inner room shape can be changed, and with the presence of an extra room. A room floating outside the building, attached to the facade, large enough to accommodate any domestic activity.

The place. PH type house in a Lot of 9.53mts x 29.00mts, in the City of Mar del Plata, Two existing homes on the same lot, sharing a common access and with different qualities. The order. The initial order of the client for the house in the fund consisted of making a bedroom as an extension on the front of the same house. Studying the location conditions and taking into account the sense of privacy, creating a bedroom in front left a courtyard unused, without character and the existing interior diagram did not allow a dining space, it was interrupted by the same circulation of crossing access to the bedroom.Save this picture!© ObralindaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© ObralindaThe proposal. The client was proposed to think about more, giving him a proposal for the relocation of all the parts, understanding all the limits and conditions that the land had. It was thought from scratch, having three blind party walls, a single free face and an existing construction in front. The idea of generating a central void and computer of the space was presented, allowing the ventilated faces to multiply, making this an intimate and introverted space where the entire interior is developed. This is how the “Patio Corazón” was born. A traversable space, made with two sliding panels facing each other and in opposite directions, offering spatial and perceptual ambiguities due to the passage of time. Open-closed, interior – exterior, cold-heat, light-shadow, transparencies-reflections. In this way, different routes arise in a house of 65m2 of covered area.Save this picture!© ObralindaSave this picture!© ObralindaAll these qualities mentioned have multiplied the value of the property and also of those who use it, allowing those who inhabit it to enjoy at all times and every moment.

The project is a non-invasive single-family house in the middle of a rural building block. Although mainly underground, it looks out over the surroundings. The main asset is the logical tectonic structure, which gives birth to both the spatial and -via the precise use of brick as the main building material- the tangible qualities of the house.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe context of the house is a (once) typical Flemish village; it is a context that becomes rare in the allotted Flemish region. The trees along an abandoned tramline define the main axis of the house. The positioning of the house on top of a gentle hill allows the users to capture all the interesting views from within the living quarters.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe clients’ brief asked for a free-standing single-family house -an assignment that in itself is under scrutiny inbuilt over Flanders. A strong and consciously tectonic structure -rather than some kind of ‘Flemish normality’ bricolage- mediates between the program and the materiality. Bricks in a color scheme that matches the tree stem in the surrounding area, concrete roof and floor slabs, and wooden windows define most of the modest presence of the house – outside and inside.Save this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!Section 02Apart from the contextual elements and the clients’ needs, there were very few constraints. That is why some constraints were deliberately selected. First, because of the interesting views in basically all directions, a pavilion-type house proved to be the most fitting solution. To obtain a minimal impact on the surroundings, this volume was positioned mainly underground. Next, the balance between the tectonic structure of the house and its program was defined and refined, which resulted in a grid-like plan with rounded corners. Spaces merge into one another both horizontally and vertically.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertPatios and strategically placed concrete skylight-domes light up the rooms, as well as wall-to-wall windows. The logic of the structure is accentuated and extended via the exact use of brick as the key building material. Everything -the length of inner walls (curved or straight), the height of ceilings …- is proportioned according to the masonry bond. It gives the building its unique consistency. The walls are either brick or glass (in wooden windows or as glass tiles), the floor slabs are in concrete, and the floors are covered in the same kind of brick as the walls (the same size, only thinner). Subtle changes in the masonry bond indicate which parts of the walls are loadbearing and which parts are hollow and contain technical installations.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertProject gallerySee allShow less3D Printing With Thermoplastics Creates a Folding System That Controls Light Tempera…MiscPublic Library Dornbirn / Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten + Christian Schmoel…Selected Projects Share Projects Aldrik Hierman House H / Architecten Broekx-Schiepers “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Belgium Manufacturers: Dornbracht, Bega, D-Line, Petersen Tegl, Viabizzuno, LITHOSS Photographs:  Stijn Bollaert Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Stijn Bollaert+ 20Curated by Hana Abdel Share Year:  Architects: Architecten Broekx-Schiepers Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs UTIL ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Lead Architects: Houses Jo Broekx, Marcella Schiepers CopyHouses, House Interiors•Belgium Landscape: ArchDaily Products translation missing: 2015 House H / Architecten Broekx-SchiepersSave this projectSaveHouse H / Architecten Broekx-Schiepers “COPY” Structural Engineering: last_img read more

Newcomer students are recent immigrants with limited or inadequate English-speaking skills. The effort would serve the district’s 1,600 newcomer high school students at a “school-within-a-school,” according to the Dallas Morning News. DISD hopes to eventually open five centers across the district.DISD will use the next year to plan and train staff for this change and launch the dual-language revamp in 2022-23 under this proposal.“Dual language can become a crucial initiative to realizing the promise to equity,” Rosemont Elementary Principal Marco Barker said.Bill passed for reparations from damages of the winter stormIn this Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2021, file photo, shows power lines in Houston. When an unusually heavy winter storm blanketed much of Texas with snow, knocking out electricity to millions of homes and leaving many struggling to find clean water, one sector of the population was particularly vulnerable: inmates in Houston at the state’s largest county jail. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)A mid-February snowstorm in Texas caused $16 billion in charges for wholesale electricity and state legislators are trying to get those charges reversed. The Texas Senate passed a bill providing reparations for the state’s top utility regulator to restore the charges for the damages during the state’s power outage.With the Legislature’s bill filing deadline on Friday, the Senate employed a parliamentary procedure during an unscheduled floor session on Monday to rescind its vote to adjourn last Thursday, according to Dallas Morning News. The bill was approved by the Senate Jurisprudence Committee by a vote of a 3-1. Within the next hour, the Senate reconvened and Sen. Bryan Hughes, R-Mineola, laid out his bill which says there is a “compelling public interest” for the state’s Public Utility Commission to reverse $16 billion in wholesale electricity charges incurred during the final days of last month’s winter storms.The bill will now head to the state House of Representatives for consideration.

Two months after the first COVID-19 shots were administered, the race to vaccinate older Americans is gaining traction, with more than half of states reporting that a third of people 65 and up have received their first dose. (AP Photo/LM Otero)A vaccination site for people 50 and over began Monday at Dallas Fair Park. “We’ve had over 730,000 people register on the website,” said Dallas County Health and Human Services spokesperson Christian Grisales. “And we’re doing about 35,000 shots a week. About 1,100 an hour.” The ultimate goal is to keep progressing and increasing the number of recipients. The current rate of 35,000 shots per week could increase to 50,000 which would allow the site to remain open seven days a week, per Fox4News. Organizers say they are also expecting more Johnson & Johnson vaccines, but it will take many more vaccines to hit site capacity.

A smart city is a place where the conventional networks and services are made more proficient with the use of digital and telecommunication technologies, for the advantage of its inhabitants and businesses. Smart cities combine infrastructure, social capital (which also involves traditional skills and community institutions), and digital technologies to stimulate sustainable economic development and offer an attractive environment for all the inhabitants. As smart city infrastructure evolves, the publisher sees 6G as an integral part of smart cities communications, applications, content, and commerce by 2035. Global metropolitan areas are facing unprecedented challenges as the pace of urbanization is increasing at a pace that is testing the ability of city planners to meet the current and anticipated needs of its citizens. Each day, more than 200K people ingress to urban areas, either because of migration or births. Between 2021 and 2050, the world’s urban population is expected to grow by over 50%. Additionally, with climate change and other environmental pressures, cities are increasingly needed to be “smart” and take significant actions to meet stringent targets inflicted by commitments and legal obligations. Smart city developments are causing solution providers to take a much more integrated approach as the design and implement infrastructure and service capabilities. Feature/functionality must be blended to work efficiently across many different industry verticals as smart cities address the needs of disparate market segments with multiple overlapping and sometimes mutually exclusive requirements. There are many technologies involved in support of smart cities. Systems and resources are intertwined as mobility, communications, energy, water, platforms, monitoring/control, performance management, predictability and forecasting all merge together. This convergence is being realized first in a few leading industries such as home entertainment and automobiles. One of the most important technology areas is broadband wireless, and in particular, 5G and beyond such as the under research and development 6G technologies. By way of example, we see smart city enabled connected homes as a key driver, representing the ability for consumers to communicate wirelessly for wide area network communications. 6G will become the predominant access point to the WAN by 2035.
