Is it the best UK share to buy today? Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares As I explained on Monday, it might seem that it’s not been a great five years for the FTSE 100. The Footsie has gained 530 points since 2016 to trade around 6,618 at Tuesday’s close. That’s a return of 8% for half a decade — an average of 1.6% a year — for taking equity risk.But adding in yearly dividends of around 4% boosts this return to 5.6% a year. That’s a lot better than top savings accounts. However, it’s easily beaten by several foreign stock markets. The US S&P 500 has almost doubled over five years, before dividends. Today, it stands around 100 points below its record high, hit a week ago.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…FTSE 100: 66 winners and 31 losers since 2016Then again, not all FTSE 100 shares have disappointed investors these past five years. Some shares have done extremely well, while others have crashed horribly. Of the 97 shares in the FTSE 100 for a full five years, 31 have fallen in value. These declines range from 2.5% to a spectacular crash of 71.8%. Across these 31 losers, the average price decline is almost a quarter (22.9%).This leaves 66 winners, whose share prices have climbed between a tiny 0.1% and a colossal 805.7%. These gainers include 26 shares that have at least doubled in value since 2016. Of these, 12 shares have tripled or more since 2016. The average gain across these FTSE 100 champions is a hefty 122%. Nice.The Footsie’s star performers over five yearsUsing Tuesday’s closing prices, these are the FTSE 100’s five best performers since February 2016. As you can see, each has produced mouth-watering gains for patient investors.Ocado Group (Online grocer) +805.7%Evraz (Steelmaker and miner) +748.8%Anglo American (Global miner)+480.3%Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (Tech fund) +410.9%Ashtead Group (Equipment rental) +349.5%Would I buy Ocado today?With its share price having risen more than nine-fold since 2016, Ocado is very highly prized today. Right now, this FTSE 100 share stands at 2,335p, down 66p (2.8%). At this level, the online grocer and seller of automated-warehouse technology is valued at £18bn. Tesco, the UK’s biggest and most profitable supermarket by far, is valued at £16.7bn. Why the bumper valuation for Ocado? It’s because Ocado is rated in line with US tech firms, while FTSE 100 rival Tesco is valued as an old-economy business.While Tesco has racked up tens of billions of pounds of profits over decades, Ocado has yet to make a penny. But it’s heading that way — and fast. Since launching in April 2000, Ocado has spent many billions investing in growth over 21 years. And growth stocks are very much favoured by investors nowadays, as we see with sky-high US tech valuations. Furthermore, Ocado kept growing strongly during the pandemic, with sales up more than a third (35%) in 2020. This growth surge shrank Ocado’s pre-tax losses to £44m in 2020, versus £215m in 2019. Likewise, Ocado is moving towards profitability and should be a winner in the inexorable drive towards online shopping. This could lead to a substantial surge in future earnings.But would I buy it? No. Without any historic profits, earnings per share or cash dividends, I can’t value Ocado shares on fundamentals. Indeed, I view Ocado as perhaps the UK’s #1 bubble stock. The shares have fallen 579p — a fifth (19.9%) — from their all-time high of 2,914p on 30 September 2020. Yet even now, I see them as too rich for my blood, so I won’t be buying this FTSE 100 share for my family portfolio! Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%.

The Episcopal Diocese of Colombia has a church in Soacha that provides space and assistance to a women’s cooperative. Photo: Lynette Wilson /ENS[Episcopal News Service – Bogotá, Colombia] Two to three families seeking shelter arrive weekly at Divine Savior Episcopal Church in Barrio Los Libertadores, a low-income community on the outskirts of Colombia’s capital, Bogotá.“Many people need to flee their homes and their land for fear of their lives,” said the Rev. José Antonio Romero, referring to the internally displaced people who seek shelter in his church. “They had farms, homes, businesses, but because of the war, they leave with nothing.”Families arrive at the bus station in Los Libertadores, or The Liberators, from all over Colombia, a country almost double the size of Texas with a rugged geography of mountain, rainforest and tropical plains.They find Divine Savior by word of mouth.Divine Savior Mission in Barrio Los Libertadores, a low-income community on the outskirts of Colombia’s capital, Bogotá, runs a shelter for IDPs. Photo: Lynette Wilson /ENSThe parish began 20 years ago with a chapel, which is now the basement of a four-story building that has a kitchen, a shelter, a sanctuary and an apartment on the top floor, where Romero has lived for the past 16 years since coming to Divine Savior.For the families that come to the city in search of safety and employment, the church provides temporary housing, food, medicine and clothing with financial support Romero says he raises through friends, while the families apply for government assistance.The Rev. José Antonio Romero’s explains that two to three families arrive weekly seeking shelter at Divine Savior. Photo: Lynette Wilson /ENSEven for those families the government determines have legitimate displacement claims – and which receive compensation sometimes in land, other times in housing – Colombia’s 4.7 million displaced people still struggle to find employment, security and often are targets of discrimination. More than half a million people have become refugees.Since the mid-1960s government forces, left-wing guerrillas and right-wing paramilitaries have been fighting a civil war rooted in inequality that has killed more than 200,000 Colombians. The Colombian government and the largest guerilla group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, have been involved in peace talks in Havana, Cuba, since 2012. It is speculated that the country’s June 15 presidential runoff election will determine whether the peace talks – accords have been reached concerning three of five agenda items – continue.Fighting and related violence associated with organized crime, drug trafficking, land distribution, and resource extraction in recent years has disproportionately affected rural areas where 44 percent of the population lives in poverty. The violence forces people living in rural areas to seek safety in cities.Located on a high plateau in the Andes, Bogotá is surrounded by these informal communities populated by internally displaced people; places like San Cristobal, where Los Libertadores is located, Suba, Ciudad Bolivar, and Soacha, where Holy Spirit Mission provides space for Mesa de Organizations de Mujeres de Soacha, a women’s rights and empowerment cooperative, supported by the World Health Organization.A working class, industrial area 40 minutes southwest of the capital, Soacha, population 490,000, is home to more than 45,000 displaced people.“All the problems, drug trafficking, armed gangs, converge here,” said the Rev. Carlos Eduardo Guevara, the priest serving Holy Spirit Church.Internally displaced people live in homes built on hillsides subject to landslides, like these in Soacha. Colombia’s capital, Bogotá, is surrounded but such informal communities. Photo: Lynette Wilson /ENSIn addition to the dangers of everyday life in Soacha, where mothers live in fear that their sons will be recruited by armed groups and criminal organizations, human rights workers and community organizers face other dangers.Human rights abuses and extrajudicial killings committed by armed groups, the government and criminal organizations have been well documented in Colombia. Human rights workers, labor activists, community and religious leaders often are targets of violence.To engage in human rights work is perceived to be working against the state, similar to the way armed groups are seen, explained Clemencia Lopez, the cooperative’s legal representative.Lopez and her family – she has three children, two in their teens, and the third 9 years old – were displaced three times, twice because of the armed conflict and once because of criminal activity and violence happening around them. Once there were three grenades thrown in front of the restaurant she and her husband owned, she said.“We were in the middle of the confrontation,” she said during an interview in her office on the second floor of Holy Spirit Mission in May of 2013.Around the time of the incident in front of the restaurant, Lopez participated in a workshop on women and gender equality; in 2007 she became involved with the women’s cooperative, which has grown to include some eight organizations.“[In the beginning] we didn’t even know how to use computers,” said Lopez, who finished high school in 2009 by taking accelerated night classes.In mainstream society, women typically don’t receive the necessary support and leadership training to participate in politics. The women’s cooperative provides women with access to human rights workshops, leadership training, education and the skills, said Lopez.Additionally, Colombia’s patriarchal society often excludes women.Clemencia Lopez and Fabiola Murcia are members of Mesa de Organizations de Mujeres de Soacha, a women’s rights and empowerment cooperative, with offices at Holy Spirit Church. Photo: Lynette Wilson /ENSIn 2012, the Colombian government adopted public policy on gender equality and a comprehensive plan against violence. Still, a 2013 report by the United Nations Human Rights Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women found “the persistence of patriarchal attitudes and deep-rooted stereotypes regarding the roles and responsibilities of women and men in the family and society.” Moreover, those attitudes and stereotypes are responsible for women’s disadvantaged position in political and public life, the labor market, the prevalence of violence against women and gender segregation, as related to educational opportunities for girls, the report said.In addition to the discrimination displaced people experience – which is in addition to other forms of gender, race and economic discrimination – displacement puts a strain on families, with husbands and wives often blaming one another for their situation, said Lopez, adding that involvement in human rights work can also strain relationships.“Women involved in human rights work put themselves at risk,” said Romero, who often accompanies the women in marches and demonstrations.The women’s cooperative came to be located at Holy Spirit Church in 2010, after friends of Lopez introduced her to Diocese of Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque. Lopez has since become involved as a lay leader in the diocese.One of the things the women have accomplished is a public policy platform for women, including the right to live a life free of violence, access to education and health care, economic opportunities, and the right to a vacation, something a life of displacement and social exclusion doesn’t afford them.“They have dignified the role of women here in Soacha,” said Guevara, to a group of visitors in May 2013.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

This project is set against the backdrop of the pre-Andean landscape of the Central Valley, famous for its remarkable landmarks. Facing the breath-taking mountain range of the Andes towards the South and the East, and looking onto a rolling, luxuriant valley of almond trees to the West, the house is located eastward next to a water reservoir, which has become an integral part of the surrounding landscape. Positioned along an East-West axis, its facades open onto the North and South directions, allowing thereby to create a luminous atmosphere, whilst avoiding harsh sunlight.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe program is composed of two solid blocks, each with a second floor, articulated by a central void and connected mid-floor by a stairway and access ramp. This helps confer further privacy to the bedroom with respect to the rest of the building. Save this picture!© Pablo BlancoThe formal character of the house arises from two conditions: first, the need to preserve the natural warmth of the Central Valley house, which translates into a pathway that runs along the entire length of the house. The other condition is self-imposed and is related to the structure of the premises, where a ribbon of concrete unwinds around the exterior structure of the house. This ribbon serves as balcony, eaves and wall, and adapts according to the new topography required by the staggered mid-floor layout.Save this picture!© Pablo BlancoMaterials play a fundamental role for the integration of the house within its natural surroundings. Visible board-formed concrete is used in most of the house, except for the basement walls, which are covered with the stones that were excavated during the foundation building phase. These pebble-like stones were split to expose their rough side. The third important material is impregnated pinewood, which is used as decking for the balconies and goes up the sides to transform into eaves. Finally, the house includes various elements of oxidised metal, such as the main entrance door and the sun louvers that conceal the service areas.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessPaulo Freire Library / 3C Arquitetura e UrbanismoSelected ProjectsTwo Conde Houses / HM.ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Pablo Blanco+ 20 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeChauriye Stäger ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPaineHousesChilePublished on December 30, 2014Cite: “Corredor House / Chauriye Stäger Arquitectos” 30 Dec 2014.

Eighth St.The proposal involves the paving of 11.2 miles of unpaved streets in Precinct 4, and a deal with Landgraf, Crutcher & Associates to provide all surveying and engineering services at a cost of no more than $77,050.Precinct 4 Commissioner Armando Rodriguez said LCA must conduct surveying to determine exact perimeters of the unpaved roads, which are county property and which are residential property.Rodriguez said it looks like this project will encompass all of the unpaved roads in Precinct 4, but that won’t be known for sure until after the survey.The total estimated cost of the project, $1,186,195, would be used for labor and materials. Both the survey cost and the total estimated cost of the project would be paid through the county’s reserved fund, Rodriguez said, but the project may end up costing more after the survey. And with the county’s tight budget, Rodriguez said the project may take several stages.The agenda shows the commissioners’ court also plans to discuss legal matters, personnel matters and real estate issues during executive session.IN OTHER BUSINESS, COMMISSIONERS:Will consider a request for the county to assume maintenance and liability for the newly constructed 220.1 feet of N.

(ACGL) can move forward with its plans to expand its footprint in the private mortgage insurance industry with the announcement of the completion of the acquisition of United Guaranty Corporation (UCG) from American International Group Inc (AIG).Based in Bermuda, ACGL reported approximately $8.24 billion in capital as of September 30, 2016. The acquisition allows Arch to further the diversification of its business profile and customer base and expand Arch’s existing private mortgage insurance operations by combining UCG’s position as a leader in the private mortgage insurance industry in the U.S. with the financial strength and history of innovation of ACGL, according to the announcement from ACGL.The acquisition was originally announced in August and completed at the end of 2016.
