Many of us watch other people choose shares which double or triple in a year, while our own portfolio doesn’t even perform as well as the market. In hopes of learnings to spot telltale signs of shares that can double in 2021, I looked back at shares which did it last year to see what I could learn.Spotting market trends just in timeShares in electrical retailer AO World had a very strong 2020, more than tripling at one point towards the end of the year. What’s interesting to me about the company’s strong performance is that, while people staying at home during the pandemic was an accelerator to online purchases, that seems like it shouldn’t have been a surprise. AO World had been accelerating revenue selling appliances online for years. The pandemic saw demand increase, but in hindsight that seems like something that could have been easy to guess at the start of lockdown. So it would have been possible to ride the AO World rise without a crystal ball or expert insight – just reading a newspaper.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 in 2021, I am paying attention to trends which I think could transform the fortunes of sectors of the economy. Then I will look for any deep value shares that can double within those sectors.Shares that can double by riding cyclical demand curvesSome industries have fairly smooth or predictable demand, such as food processing and clothing. Others are very cyclical. That means that they go though cycles where demand increases and prices shoot up, before crashing later on.That might sound odd, but there’s a reason for it. Industries such as mining and energy require huge capital expenditures. When the commodity price is low, companies tighten their belts and cut back developing new projects. Such projects take years to develop, so when demand outstrips supply again, the price can rise sharply. As the spending was cut before, supply becomes insufficient so prices keep rising. That encourages a rush to develop supply, which later leads to a glut. Prices fall and the whole cycle starts again.Last year, Glencore shares doubled from their March lows. Even though the mining giant’s results were mixed, investors were looking forward to the prospects of demand recovery and higher prices. I now scan the horizon to see what commodity cycles are set to improve.Hunting for valueA rear view mirror is not a crystal ball. So shares which doubled in 2020 might not even do well in 2021. For example, I think AO World is quite highly priced for now and I wouldn’t buy it today. However, the principles of what led to shares doubling before can be rewarding to study. I find it helps me have a better framework to use when researching shares that can double in 2021.Instead of just looking for shares driven by momentum, I prefer to hunt for real value. That means a share which has a good underlying business which clicks with its customers, but whose prospects have been mispriced by the market. Sometimes it doesn’t work and shares with low prices stay stubbornly low. But sometimes, carefully researching and picking the right shares, they really can double.

Eddie Jones on his life in pictures

first_imgThis article originally appeared in the April 2018 issue of Rugby World magazine. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. “Steve Borthwick was the first signing we made and Andy Farrell was in his third year with Saracens. He was an outstanding player and has turned into an outstanding coach. Steve never got enough credit for his part in Saracens’ revival. He brought captaincy to the team when in transition.”Bumpy ride: Eddie Jones is lifted by his Suntory Sungoliath players (Getty Images)2012 – Confidence boost “This was with Suntory. I went back in 2009 and they hadn’t won a trophy for eight years. Again I had good players, a good team, and this is winning the Japan Championship in 2012. And that’s a bit of a tradition in Japan (the coach getting lifted).“I’d been through a reasonably difficult period and I got a lot of confidence back there.”Japan’s hero: Karne Hesketh scores the winning try against South Africa at RWC 2015 (Getty Images)2015 – Tears of joy“Karne Hesketh had only come on a minute before and a Japanese winger probably wouldn’t have scored that try, but we had a heavier guy carrying the ball (and Japan beat South Africa 34-32). I remember walking down to the pitch and all the Japanese supporters were crying. It’s one of those things I didn’t understand, that when the Japanese are happy they cry. It meant so much to so many people.Post-match: Eddie Jones with Takeshi Kizu after the win over the Boks (Getty Images)“In the changing room we had a sign listing three things, ‘Japan Way 2015’ – fast start, strong finish and I can’t remember the third!“We also came up with a symbol that had samurai eyes and a ninja body – always looking to kill the opposition and moving quickly.”Roar of the roses: England celebrate winning the Grand Slam against France (Getty Images)2016 – An eye-opener “We had a good team and a team that worked hard (England won a first Grand Slam since 2003 by beating France 31-21 in Paris).“I didn’t realise how big a Grand Slam was, how important it was to the country and how little England had won until this. It’s amazing. I’ve 100% got a better understanding of it now and how hard it is, particularly when you’re England and everyone is coming at you.”Sharing ideas: Eddie Jones with then England football manager Roy Hodgson in 2016 (Getty Images)2016 – Good sports “He’s a great gentleman, Roy Hodgson, and giving with his time.“It’s good to keep learning (from different coaches). Pep Guardiola has such a strong philosophy and backs it. He went through a bit of pain in his first season with Manchester City, everyone saying you couldn’t play like that and win the league, and now everyone is saying you should play like that!”Drive time: Eddie Jones playing the Rugby Union Writers’ Club (Getty Images)2016 – Right off the bat “If I wasn’t coaching rugby I’d love to coach cricket. I love five-day Test matches. They’re a bit like a rugby Test match. You play a five-day Test and you don’t have to win every session, it comes down to key moments.”Anyone for tennis? Eddie Jones with Rod Laver at Wimbledon (Getty Images)2017 – An Aussie icon “A legend. Growing up, Rod Laver was an iconic sportsman in Australia and I got to meet him.“Wimbledon is one of the most incredible sporting events I’ve been to. That and the Tour de France. The Tour is a simple event and has such a community base.“I’m with my wife, Hiroko, here. She doesn’t get too involved in rugby, doesn’t get affected by it, so we can just relax at home.” England coach Eddie Jones reflects on the highs and lows of a career that has taken him around the world Eddie Jones on his life in picturesEngland coach Eddie Jones goes through the photo album of his career, which has taken him around the world, and provides his memories of both the ups and downs over the past few decades.All smiles: Eddie Jones (front row, second left) with the Randwick team (Brett Dooley/Randwick Rugby)1984 – Club class“We had a pretty useful team (Randwick won the Premiership in 1984). We had the three Ellas at their peak. Matt and Brad Burke, Lloyd Walker… I think about 12 of the team were Wallabies, so we had pretty good rugby players.“I see them every now and then, but it’s got harder since I’ve been away from Australia. I’m good mates with Glen Ella and he’s done a few tours with us.”True two: Eddie Jones taking in the 1989 Lions (Colorsport/REX/Shutterstock)1989 – Lions’ share“I think this was in Dubbo. NSW B against the Lions in 1989 and we got beaten by a horrific score, 50 points (it wasn’t quite that bad – it was 39-19).“I remember at the end of the game, with the number of injuries we had, I had to move back to openside flanker and I was marking Andy Robinson. He had a height advantage over me.“That was a tough old game but a great experience.”Brum note: Brumbies coach Eddie Jones with Peter Ryan (Getty Imahes)2001 – A league of his own“That’s me with Peter Ryan, who came over from rugby league and was the most important catalyst for changing the Brumbies from a good team to a great team (they won the 2001 Super 12 title with Jones as coach).“He was a back-row and he toughened up training for the forwards – he just brought that rugby league toughness.“The gear’s not changed much!”Gold moment: Eddie Jones and John Eales after Australia won the Bledisloe Cup in 2001 (Getty Images)2001 – Bled and beers“This was one of John Eales’s last games (beating New Zealand 23-15 in Dunedin). It was obviously a big win – the Bledisloe Cup was massive in those days – and we had a drink afterwards. I had a good team, I was lucky. One thing to remember as a national coach is you don’t develop players, but I had a good group of players.”Downbeat: Eddie Jones with his players after the RWC 2003 final defeat (Getty Images)2003 – Final hurdle“I remember this one (RWC 2003 final loss to England). I was very proud of the team. We got beaten by England 25-14 in June and they were by far a better team than us. We’d worked really hard and to take them to 100 minutes, to make it a great game of rugby, was a great achievement.The day after: Eddie Jones enjoys a beer following the loss (Getty Images)“This other photo is from the next day. There’s Bill Young, one of our props, and his dad, who owned the pub. I won’t tell you everything that happened; it was crazy! We had the whole pub and drank the whole day. Then the next night we went to The Lodge and stayed up talking to the Prime Minister, John Howard, and his wife.”Dynamic duo: South Africa coaches Eddie Jones and Jake White (Getty Images)2007 – Silver to gold“Here I’m with Jake White before the World Cup final. The Springboks wouldn’t let me wear the suit as I wasn’t South African. They gave me some other kit, but I wore the tracksuit instead.“I remember saying to Jake, ‘Can you turn a silver medal into gold?’ And he said, ‘Yep, I can’, so I decided to help him.”Capital gains: Andy Farrell, Eddie Jones and Steve Borthwick in London (Getty Images)2008 – Sarries sojourn LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Mark Richardson, pose for a photograph on the roof of Parsons Hall. Photo: Tom Minczeski/CDSP[Episcopal News Service] Harnessing energy from the sun is expected to save Church Divinity School of the Pacific $120,000 annually.Earlier this year, the Berkeley, California-based Episcopal seminary installed solar panels on Easton, Parsons and Shires Halls. It’s the largest solar installation of any theological seminary in the United States.“When American Solar came out and looked at our flat roofs with basically 100 percent southern exposure they were blown away by how effective this is going to be on our campus,” said seminary Dean and President W. Mark Richardson, during an interview with Episcopal News Service earlier this year.On Oct. 22, former Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, St. Margaret’s Visiting Professor of Women in Ministry at CDSP, and Bishop of California Marc Andrus lead a liturgy to bless and dedicate the solar panels at the end of a daylong conference exploring the church’s response to the crisis of climate change.The solar panels move the seminary toward energy independence, and the project itself is also a way to teach and empower students who were involved in the decision-making process to think about ways to mitigate climate change when they graduate, said Richardson.The leadership at CDSP involved students in the solar installation process from the start. Including walking students through determining the project’s feasibility, the request for proposals, how to secure the necessary legal contracts, setting a timetable for build-out; the skills seminarians will need in the community, said Richardson.Through a dashboard, students will be able to track the effectiveness and energy-saving capacity of the solar panels.In December 2015, Richardson and Andrus were among those who represented the Episcopal Church and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry at the United Nations climate talks in Paris where negotiators reached a comprehensive agreement on climate change.The Paris Agreement calls on countries worldwide to limit carbon emissions. Limiting carbon will require a decreased dependence on fossil fuels and an increase in reliance on renewable energy sources. CDSP’s solar panels show what efforts nongovernmental institutions can make toward helping the world shift toward renewable energy.“CDSP is going off of one grid – the grid of life lived by extraction and ever-increasing consumption – and consciously becoming part of a network, that of life lived sustainably and in communion,” said Andrus, in an email to ENS. “CDSP is making a profoundly spiritual shift, towards wholeness.”So far, 84 of 197 parties, including the United States, have ratified the Paris Agreement, which calls on not just nations, but state and local governments, and nongovernmental institutions, including religious organizations, to make an effort to prevent the worst effects of climate change.“The Episcopal Church too can lend their important aid to fulfilling the Paris Agreement,” said Andrus, who represented the Episcopal Church at the United Nations for the signing of the agreement.As retired Archbishop of Cape Town Njongonkulu Winston Hugh Ndungane said of the church in Africa, “‘There is no better means of delivering social services than the church, as we have an “outlet” in every village.’ Look at how the Episcopal Church is one body, with some 5,000 ‘outlets’; our impact for helping prevent climate disaster is potentially enormous,” he said.Of the Diocese of California’s 81 congregations, 30 percent have installed solar panels. The goal, Andrus added, is to install solar panels on all of the diocese’s churches and diocesan buildings.Berkeley sees an average 256 days of sunshine a year, and like nearly every region of the United States, “solar power generation makes abundantly good sense,” said Jefferts Schori, in an email to ENS.“The installation of this solar array on the campus of CDSP will provide a major boon to the annual budget, lessen the demand for electricity produced from fossil fuel and reduce the need for future power plants,” she said. “Christian seminaries have long claimed their grounding in the Son of God who brings light to the world. How better to enact this in a sacramental witness to the interconnectedness of all creation?“CDSP is offering the world an outward and visible sign of the spiritual grace abounding in this community.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The work is located on the Coliumo peninsula, in a rural setting scarcely populated by farmers, independent fishermen and a few summer tourists. It is a distant location that, we believe, is not far from the reality of the raw dream described by Martinez Estrada. There, a compact and autonomous piece was built in order to capture at least two things: the sensation of a natural podium surrounded by vastness and the dizzying and wide open space produced by the sight of the sea washing against the rocks at the foot of the cliffs. Save this picture!The building functions both as a summer house and a cultural center. This established a contradictory use: the interior would have to mediate between a very public aspect and a more intimate and informal one. That is, it had to be both monumental and domestic without any of the negative aspects of either one affecting the other. Therefore, we decided not to name the rooms by function but instead to leave them nameless and functionless, just empty rooms with varying degrees of connection between them. Then we decided to organize all the service functions in an oversized perimeter (the functional width), inside a thick wall that acts as a buffer. That hollowed, empty space houses the kitchen, the vertical circulations, the bathrooms, the closets and a series of interior balconies that protect the windows from the sun (to the north) and the rain (to the west). If necessary, all the furniture and domestic objects can be stored inside the perimeter, freeing up the space for multiple activities. Save this picture!The entire work was built with handmade concrete, using untreated wooden frames. The work was done with a small mixer and four wheelbarrows, in horizontal strata that matched the height of half a wooden board. We then used the same battered wood of the frames to line the interior and to build sliding panels that function both as doors to hide the services of the perimeter and as security shutters that cover the windows when the house is left alone.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessPirihueico House / Alejandro AravenaSelected ProjectsOslo Opera House / SnøhettaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/476/poli-house-pezo-von-ellrichshausen Clipboard Year:  Save this picture!+ 28 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/476/poli-house-pezo-von-ellrichshausen Clipboardcenter_img Area:  180 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” “COPY” Projects 2005 Poli House / Pezo von Ellrichshausen Poli House / Pezo von EllrichshausenSave this projectSavePoli House / Pezo von Ellrichshausen CopyAbout this officePezo von EllrichshausenOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCultural CenterCulturalHousesChilePublished on May 08, 2008Cite: “Poli House / Pezo von Ellrichshausen” 08 May 2008.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensText description provided by the architects. Bergen-based architect Todd Saunders’ self-designed home is a soaring symphony in Norwegian wood. Describing his latest project, a house for his own family in a leafy suburb of Bergen, Todd Saunders says, ‘It’s like three sticks, stacked on top of each other.’ At a stretch, the analogy holds – the house is composed of three wood-clad elements, one vertical, two horizontal – but it’s far more accurate to describe it as a strictly functional composition.Save this picture!© Bent René SynnevågA vertical stack containing stairs and circulation is bisected by a vast horizontal beam that forms the core of the house, with the kitchen at its heart and one end supported by a generous utility area set at right angles to the main structure. Although it takes a single glance to understand the arrangement, the house is more complex than it first appears. Throughout the 300 sq m floorplan, there are spatial tricks, large terraces, hidden alignments and the kind of attention to detail that only an architect could bestow on his own personal space.Save this picture!© Bent René SynnevågThe house is set among a thicket of modern villas in Tveiterås Garden City, south of Bergen city centre. Once the site of a rural farm, the suburb was laid out by pioneering local architect Leif Grung in the early 1930s. Grung’s elegant functionalism has weathered well, and the immaculately maintained plots, with their verdant planting and far-reaching views, create an oasis of calm.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe first view of the new house is up a steep, narrow driveway, from which one gets tantalising glimpses of the ribbon windows, flat roofs and shuttered facades of the vintage Grungs. Saunders nods to the neighbours while also making a strong statement. Clad in stained black wood, the house has imposing presence, with the glazing in the three-storey ‘tower’ and accommodation beam reflecting the sky and trees. You also catch a chunk of the site beneath and beyond the structure, thanks to the long cantilever, making the house appear as if it’s just landed on the site. The effort of any build belies the idea that a house can just be ‘set down’ on its plot, especially after Saunders and his family had spent a year living down the road, visiting daily. But now it’s finished, the illusion is a tantalising one.Save this picture!© Bent René SynnevågSet on an east-west alignment, just like its 80-year- old neighbours, the new house feels utterly integrated into the site. The last remaining plot in Grung’s masterplan, the land was originally designated as a communal park but had been abandoned to vegetation. Cleared and levelled, with a few key trees preserved, the new house nestles in a slight dip against a slope. Incredibly, the only restriction on the design was that it had to be less than 9m high, although Saunders and his wife had to present their proposals to 14 neighbours. None objected. The steel and wood frame is covered earlier houses, with delicately mitred joints shaped by Saunders’ long-serving and highly skilled carpenter.Save this picture!Second Floor Plan‘Form-wise, it’s not the most spectacular house I’ve done,’ says Saunders, ‘but it’s the most interesting thing for this climate.’ That is to say, the house is robust but graceful. Covered terraces, and porches abound. ‘It’s like an umbrella – it protects you from the rain.’ Bergen is certainly damp – it rains 250 days a year – although our visit takes place in sparkling sunshine, lending Technicolor surrealism to the elevated living spaces, their huge windows framing views of both the distant harbour city and the steep, rocky hillside. ‘It’s quite rectilinear,’ says Saunders. ‘The houses here are not showing off and it had to be a good neighbour – it was what felt right in terms of scale and materiality.’Save this picture!© Bent René SynnevågSaunders’ modesty is disarming. The Canadian has lived in Bergen for 18 years, and although 75 per cent of his work takes place outside the city limits, he is clearly fond of it. Already known for his work in Norway, the architect’s pavilions and hotel for Fogo Island cemented his reputation. His geometric forms adrift on the rugged Newfoundland coast created irresistible clickbait for an architecture-hungry global audience.Save this picture!© Bent René SynnevågOf his own house, he says, ‘There’s not much here we’ll never use. I approached it as a home for my family, to make our life really good.’ The raised level doubles as a carport below, and a covered walkway leads to the front door. A porch, utility area and playroom take up the ground floor, with stairs heading to the main space, where the house opens up. The dimensions are impressive – a 35m-long living area, with wide Dinesen floorboards underfoot (some of which run an unbroken 14m), as well as a mighty 9m kitchen counter. Aside from the kitchen, the rooms are modest, with a master suite to the west, two bedrooms for his daughters at the centre of the house, and a living room to the east. The terraces are partly covered, and the twin orientations make them perfect for morning or evening use.Save this picture!© Bent René SynnevågThe furniture and fittings have been chosen in collaboration with Swedish artist Hannes Wingate, a Central St Martins graduate who spent a few years running Jeanne Gang’s interiors department in Chicago. ‘Todd’s architecture is connected to an origin or vernacular both in its form, materiality and relationship to site,’ says Wingate. ‘He’s refreshingly no-nonsense.’ Starting from scratch, the artist assembled a collection that makes the most of the spaces, including a daybed by Another Country, vintage Danish sideboards, light fixtures by Roll & Hill, and kitchen counter stools by Søren Rose, while handmade ceramic tiles from San Francisco adorn all three bathrooms. The custom-built staircase – with its open treads preserving the views along the length of the house – continues to the top floor, where there’s a library space and two more terraces. Saunders describes the library as the biggest extravagance in a house that is pared down to the bare essentials. ‘It’s the closest I’ve come to bringing architecture and home together. It’s one chapter of who I am as an architect, but it’s not the full story.’Save this picture!© Bent René SynnevågMeanwhile, thick walls conceal masses of storage, as well as swathes of insulation, with underfloor heating powered by a deep geothermal well on the site. There’s a trick here, although it’s in no way a devious one, in that Saunders’ architecture successfully translates the lightness and grace of modernism into an environment that demands solidity and strength.

Corn Growers Should Assess Wireworm Risk Prior to Planting

first_img Corn Growers Should Assess Wireworm Risk Prior to Planting Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Corn Growers Should Assess Wireworm Risk Prior to Planting Corn growers need to scout their fields to determine wireworm populations before planting so they don’t miss the optimum treatment window, a Purdue Extension entomologist says.Wireworms, or click beetle larvae, feed on corn seed germ and may prevent plants from sprouting. The pest becomes active when soil temperatures warm into the upper 40s.“There are two trapping methods to determine the potential risk from wireworm to this year’s crop, but they will need to be implemented very soon,” Christian Krupke said.Growers can bait the pests with either solar or flour bait stations. With either method, traps should be placed in at least five representative areas of a field, Krupke said.Solar bait stations are created by digging holes in the soil 9 inches in diameter and 6 inches deep. Each hole should have a handful of untreated corn and wheat seeds, then be refilled with soil, covered with a piece of black plastic (holding down the sides with soil) and marked with a flag or stake.“The black plastic acts as a solar collector, warming the soil surrounding the bait, providing heat for germination of the corn and wheat seeds,” Krupke said.The second method is similar, but replaces the corn and wheat seeds with flour. The black plastic isn’t necessary, but marking the spot is.“Gasses given off during fermentation of the flour are attractive to the wireworms, and they will move to the bait to feed,” Krupke said. “The bait should be left in the fields as long as possible (two-week maximum) up to the time of planting. At that time, the bait at each station should be dug up and examined for wireworms. If they are in the field, you will find them feeding on the flour ball.”Once growers know whether their corn crops will be at risk and the extent of the risk, they can decide on management strategies.According to Krupke, one or two wireworms found per bait station might warrant higher rates of seed-applied insecticides, possibly at the rootworm rate. Higher populations could render seed-applied treatments ineffective.Krupke also pointed out that while seed-applied insecticides will protect the crop, they often do not kill wireworms, causing populations to build up over the years.“In this scenario, granular soil insecticides would afford better protection of the corn seed and seedling, especially during slow-growing environmental conditions after planting,” he said.Another option would be to plant soybeans where wireworm populations could be higher. While the pest feeds on soybeans, the plants are typically planted a little later into warmer soils and also have the ability to compensate for thinner stands with higher seed production – unlike corn.The bottom line, Krupke said, is to keep in mind that pre-planting is the last opportunity to manage wireworms.“Remember that there is no rescue treatment for wireworms once the crop has been planted,” he said.(Purdue Entomology photo/John Obermeyer)Source: Purdue Ag Communications SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleISDA Appoints New Communications DirectorNext articleUSTR Reports Show Trade Progress Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Apr 2, 2013 SHARElast_img read more

I look forward to working with our many partners to promote soil stewardship in Indiana.”Laureys is a 2015 graduate of Indiana University – Bloomington where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in public affairs and environmental management. While originally from New Carlisle, Indiana, he now resides in Indianapolis.last_img read more
