The Lloyds share price is recovering but here’s why I won’t buy back in

So far in February, the Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) share price is up by around 10%. This follows a torrid time for the bank’s share price, which was hit hard by the pandemic and fears over the economy. Could that mean the shares are now cheap? And am I tempted to buy in as the shares gain momentum?What’s boosting the Lloyds share price?One of the boosters for the share price, I think, is more positive commentary around the economic outlook. Andrew Bailey, Governor of the Bank of England, has been quoted saying the fast rollout of the vaccine should help the economy recover.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…That’s good for banks as they are closely tied to the health of the economy. People can pay back loans when they’re employed and earning money. Businesses take out loans to grow. It all helps the banks.Possibly also the changes to the management team may also be a factor. Lloyds already has a new chairman and has appointed a new CEO, Charlie Nunn from HSBC, to take over later this year. This new team could look to accelerate growth or change the strategy of the bank. This could help excite investors and grow the Lloyds share price.Given Lloyds shares are far cheaper than before the pandemic, that could mean there’s the potential for further growth. The reintroduction of dividends could be another booster. However, I’m not going to buy into this recovery. Not because I don’t think Lloyds could do well in the next 12 months and beyond. More because I think that there are better shares for growing my investment portfolio. A better choice to invest in than Lloyds Banking Group?One share I think has far better potential to deliver growth is fast fashion e-commerce company ASOS (LSE: ASC). I like its improvement in growing operating profits, which have gone from 1% to 4.8% in the last year. It has also recently added to its brands and profile by acquiring the intellectual property for Topshop, Miss Selfridge and others from the collapsed Arcadia retail empire. Boohoo has done similar acquisitions recently, which have worked well and helped its share price.The brands generated around £265m in 2020, so have the potential to make a significant impact. I expect ASOS’s digital marketing expertise could grow these brands even further.The risks, of course, are still there — principally, that boohoo is potentially more popular with the target millennial audience (and indeed arguably with investors as well).There’s also an environmental, social, and governance risk as fast fashion is damaging for the environment, which may keep a lid on share price growth if big investors don’t feel able to buy the shares.The group is also investing in warehouses, which adds fixed costs. If sales underperform, these facilities will be inefficient and will hit profits again.Overall, in terms of risk versus reward, I think I’d personally add ASOS over Lloyds to my portfolio. Fast fashion is still a growth industry, ASOS is improving its operations, and acquiring new brands. After a period of disappointing investors, I think it could be turning a corner.

Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I bought this stock for a few reasons. Firstly, I think the US economy is going to boom in the next 12 months (in Q1, GDP grew 6.4%). I see Visa as a good way to capitalise on US consumer spending.Secondly, I expect Visa to benefit as travel picks up. It generates a large proportion of its revenues from cross-border transactions.Third, I expect the company to benefit as the world shifts away from cash in the years ahead.Visa is an expensive stock. Currently, the forward-looking P/E ratio is a little over 40. This adds risk. I’m comfortable with this valuation though. This is a high-quality company that’s very profitable. Enter Your Email Address Regular readers will know I’m a big fan of this stock – it’s one of my largest holdings. The reason I’m so bullish is that I expect the ‘gig economy’ (or ‘talent economy’) to grow significantly in the years ahead as people realise that, due to technology, they no longer need to work 9-to-5 jobs. These days, if you have a skill set, you can market that to companies all over the world and work from anywhere.Upwork is a more speculative stock. Currently, the company is only generating small profits. The valuation is quite high too (the price-to-sales ratio is 13), which adds risk. I’m comfortable with this risks though. While it’s a larger holding for me, it represents less than 5% of my overall investment portfolio.A Warren Buffett stockFinally, I started a position in Visa (NYSE: V), a stock owned by Warren Buffett. It’s the largest payments company in the world. For every $1 spent in physical locations globally, around 15 cents goes through the Visa network. I paid $233 per share for my shares. Right now, I’m not piling a ton of money into the stock market. That’s because, in my view, many areas of the market are quite expensive at present.Having said that, I’m taking advantage of opportunities when I see them. With that in mind, here’s a look at three stocks I bought for my portfolio last month.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…A FTSE 100 reopening stockThe first I bought (more of) was Smith & Nephew (LSE: SN).

Edward Sheldon owns shares in Smith & Nephew, Upwork, and Visa. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Visa. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Smith & Nephew and Upwork. 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. The reason I bought SN was that I see it as a great ‘reopening’ stock. This company experienced significant challenges last year as elective medical procedures were postponed, due to Covid-19.However, now that the world’s reopening, business is picking up. Indeed, in a trading statement posted last week, the company said Q1 2021 revenue was up 6.2% on an underlying basis. For the year, it’s targeting top-line growth of 10-13%.Of course, if the Covid-19 situation deteriorates, SN could experience challenges again. This is a risk to consider. However, I’m not too concerned about short-term setbacks. This is a stock I plan to hold for the long term in order to capitalise on the world’s ageing population.A gig economy stockThe next stock I bought (more of) was Upwork (NASDAQ: UPWK). It operates the world’s largest freelance employment platform, which I use myself as a freelancer. I bought some more shares at the $44 level.last_img read more

Located in the mountain basin of Uonuma, Japan; the city does a complete turnaround from warm humid summers to snow covered winters. Here the temperature can reach up to 30 degree celcius in summers with over 80% humidity, while in winter the city might receive snowfall reaching up to 3 meters in height. Thus, a house built in this region needs to not only face the adversities of the land but also create an environment where the residents can thrive within their surroundings.Save this picture!© Noriki MatsuzakiThe conventional design approach to counter this snow is to elevate the living spaces, use mechanical means to melt rooftop snow using ground water and have thick walls with additional insulation. But all these measures create an isolation between the inside and outside. We didn’t want to carry forward this convention of separating the inside and outside thus in essence propagating the feeling of being out of place within one’s own environment. We wanted the residents to fully enjoy their landscape and its setting. Thus an important factor of the design was to make this connection between the building and snow more direct. Save this picture!© Noriki MatsuzakiWe conceptualized a house where instead of living atop a high foundation, one can live inside of it, and by maximizing the traditionally small buffer spaces, such as verandas and sunrooms, we were able to reduce the extremities of the climate and create a home with thin walls. Thus, proposing a new way of interacting with the snow, cold and heat of the environment than previously seen in the region.Save this picture!Detail sectionSave this picture!PlanLiving inside the foundation. By raising the foundation higher than the norm, we designed a foundation where people enter into the living space when they step inside. This raised RC foundation is firmly insulated from the outside while, the piled up snow itself acts as an additional insulator blocking cold winds from entering into the house. The heat generated by the wood burning stove is captured inside this raised foundation walls and the radiant heat continuously warms the space.Wherein the houses of the region rely on the efficiency of insulation borne out of the wall thickness, this house uses its environment to increase its efficiency.  As summer progresses, this living room acts as a pleasant reservoir of cool air, similar to being inside a swimming pool.Save this picture!© Noriki MatsuzakiLife wrapped in thin walls. All structural members used in the construction are just 90, 105 and 150 mm wood members and this simple framework design is made visible on the inside by stripping the interior cladding and placing the insulation on the outer side of the walls. In actuality, the thickness of the wall is the typical 160mm as seen in the region, but by peeling away the interior cladding and exposing the framework, in practicality the awareness of this thickness is driven away.  Furthermore, the finesse and intricacy of the window and construction detailing come together to create a space that balances the big vastness of the room with grace. An overlap of delicate design and attention to detail is used to create agraceful yet large volume space.Save this picture!© Noriki MatsuzakiLarge open buffer space with small private rooms.The traditionally small buffer spaces such as verandas and terraces have been maximized in this design and re-imagined into one large open buffer space. The private rooms are arranged within this buffer space such that the utility of the buffer space exceeds from being just a buffer between the outside and inside. It creates a space that maximizes the comfort of the interior, whilst giving the residents open access to the pleasure and enjoyment of the outside. This large buffer space is thermally regulated using the usual insulation as well as additional insulation techniques such as snow walls and radiant heat to maximize thermal comfort.  This buffer emerges as an organic connection between the inside and outside, opening up the life on this land to the world outside; this is what makes this space enjoyable. Save this picture!© Noriki MatsuzakiIn a city where the people normally enjoy the landscape from a distance and overlook the snowy fields from atop their elevated living spaces, m house breaks this tradition. Overlapping 3 elements, the house naturally extends out and connects with its landscape. This way of living is a contrast to the regional architecture, but life found inside is warmer and closer to the snow, and its land; “taking the land’s way of life and scenery and influencing the architecture that is built”.Save this picture!© Noriki MatsuzakiProject gallerySee allShow lessTTC Elite Saigon Kindergarten / KIENTRUC OSelected ProjectsHaapsalu Episcopal Castle / KAOS ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Manufacturers: Vectorworks, Toto, Acor, Hygolet de México, LIXIL · INAX Ricksil · Inaks, OKAMOTO, Tform Year:  “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920992/m-house-takeru-shoji-architects Clipboardcenter_img Japan Photographs M House / Takeru Shoji Architects CopyHouses, Sustainability•Uonuma, Japan Area:  93 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Takeru Shoji, Yuki Hirano, Ryoichi Aida Houses Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920992/m-house-takeru-shoji-architects Clipboard Photographs:  Noriki Matsuzaki Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY”last_img read more

On the picket line

first_imgIronworkers on strike in San FranciscoSan Francisco ironworkers, who do very dangerous but essential work on huge construction projects, walked off the job on at least two sites on Sept. 10 and Sept. 11 to demand a re-vote on a concessions contract. A major issue that prompted the wildcat was no translations of the contract into Spanish or Chinese. Some 60 percent of the workers speak Spanish.The workers are also demanding a cost-of-living wage because they continue to make about what they earned in 2005. “No on new contract, strike for fair wages” read the main banner. Picket signs read “Cost of living soars, wages are ignored” and “We can’t afford to live where we work.” One worker, a member of Ironworks Local 377, told the Labor Video Project that San Francisco has the highest cost of living in the world, but ironworkers in New York City make twice what workers in San Francisco make. For more details about the wildcat, view videos on youtube.com/laborvideo, Sept. 11 and Sept. 12.‘FedEx workers are FedEx employees’Just in time for Labor Day, federal appeals courts in California and Oregon ruled that FedEx workers in those states are employees, not contractors. The judge in San Francisco noted that the contract the workers must sign “gives FedEx a broad right to control the manner in which the drivers perform their work.” This includes specifying the uniforms they wear, their personal grooming and the vehicles they drive, including the dimensions of shelving and paint color. Though the company does not dictate working hours, it organizes the drivers’ workloads so they work between 9 1/2 and 11 hours a day and tells them what packages to deliver on what days and at what times.“This ruling will have seismic impact on this industry and the lives of FedEx Ground drivers in California,” said Beth Ross, the drivers’ attorney there. (SFgate.com, Aug. 28) For instance, now drivers will be able to sue for overtime pay, employer contributions to Social Security and Medicare, unemployment benefits, sick pay, family leave and workers’ compensation. The ruling affects 2,300 full-time drivers who worked for FedEx between 2000 and 2007 in California and 360 in Oregon. FedEx is appealing the rulings.These decisions, along with a similar ruling about McDonald’s workers on July 29 by the National Labor Relations Board, could — should — have wide ramifications in industries that deliberately hire contractors to “employ” their workers. For instance, workers who drive trucks loaded with Walmart goods from California ports to inland warehouses have been fighting for years to be categorized as Walmart employees. Workers, often immigrants, who are contracted to provide janitorial work, package delivery, home-care services, construction and even some professional services like writing are deliberately cheated out of a living wage and employee protections while 1% owners revel in their stolen wealth and class privilege.According to the Leonard Carder law firm where Ross works, she is pursuing a national suit against FedEx.Paid sick days for 6.5 million in CaliforniaA California law granting 6.5 million low-wage workers, or 39 percent of the state’s workforce, paid sick days was signed into law on Sept. 10; it will go into effect July 1, 2015. Home-care workers, however, were excluded. But unions vowed to continue the fight until they are also covered. Similar policies were passed covering Connecticut workers in 2011 and workers in New York City earlier this year. However, unlike the earlier laws, this one will apply to businesses large and small. (aflcio.blog.org, Sept. 11)Minnesota home-care workers vote unionA large crowd at the Minnesota AFL-CIO Labor Pavilion at the Minnesota State Fair applauded Aug. 26 when it was announced that the 26,000 home-care workers in the state will now be represented by SEIU Healthcare Minnesota. To gain the right to join a union, the workers, predominantly women, many of whom are women of color and/or immigrants, had to first change state laws and then fight off court challenges bankrolled by the National Right to Work Committee. “With our collective voice, we will be stronger in our fight for improvements for both workers and the people we serve,” said Rosemary Van Vickle, a home-care worker from Crosby. Key issues for the workers are better pay and benefits and more access to training, with improved quality of care for clients.

Rain and Heat Welcomed in Southern Indiana.

first_img Previous articleAnother Farm Bureau Drainage School ScheduledNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt SHARE Rain and Heat Welcomed in Southern Indiana. SHARE Rain and Heat Welcomed in Southern Indiana. While fields in the northern part of the state have been hit with several heavy rains in the past week, it has been a different story for farmers in the south.  More rain and more heat is what crops in Southern Indiana need, says Steve Gauck, agronomist with Beck’s Hybrids.  Gauck says fields in the SE corner are especially dry while SW counties have had some timely rains this week. Overall, he said the crops are off to a good start, “The stands are not perfect but, for the most part, they are pretty good. Soybeans have been slow to develop because of the cool weather; and we had had some reports of yellowing corn, but some sunny days will help all of that.” He added that most of the corn is in the V4 to V5 stage.As Hoosier Ag Today reported earlier this week, slow emergence has hurt yield potential in the northern part of the state. Gauck says this is not the case in the south, “We still have the potential to have good yields.” He said some corn fields in the SW part of the state are already waist high. Gauck said the dry conditions in southern fields have been good for the wheat crop that is racing toward maturity, “The wheat is advancing rather quickly and looks to be in good shape.”Hoosier Ag Today Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin is forecasting plenty of rain for the Hoosier State and much of the Corn Belt for the next several days, “More rains come through about every other day. We see action Sunday into Monday, Tuesday through Thursday, and even the extended period starts off with more of the same with scattered showers around the 21st-22nd. Then a strong frontal system hits for the 24th-26th.” Martin sees warmer temperatures ahead for the weekend, “We should see decent south flow today and tomorrow ahead of the big rains, and that should push temps to above normal levels. We can see some 90s over the state, with some areas getting their first taste of 90. However, the mid to upper 80s will be more common…which is still above normal. With the increase in clouds for next week and the nearly constant threat of moisture…we likely will keep temps a bit cooler, closer to normal for the entire week.”center_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jun 11, 2015 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Rain and Heat Welcomed in Southern Indiana.last_img read more

When Irish Water is fully established, it will be as big an organisation as the ESB, so they have an enormous task.“It’s a pity there has been such controversy and I hope they can work their way through the controversies in the short term rather than in the long-term”, he said.In relation to reports this week that Irish Water staff could earn annual bonuses of up to 19 per cent, the Fine Gael Minister said: “As I understand the performance pay or bonuses, the arrangement is similar to the arrangements that prevail in Bord Gáis Éireann, and they applied that to their subsidiary.“When that performance pay arrangement came in with the representative bodies in Bord Gáis Éireann, it was in lieu of incremental salary and the workers lost a lot of their incremental salary privileges to move onto the scheme of the bonuses.“I’m not too sure of the full detail of it, because obviously it’s a commercial semi-state that runs its own affairs”, he concluded.
