A magnitude 6.6 tremor in eastern Japan halted work at Fukushima, where engineers are still pumping water into three damaged reactors to stave off a fresh meltdown, and coincided with a new government warning to evacuate certain areas within 20km of the plant. Japan’s chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano said children, pregnant women and people in hospitals should consider leaving the areas, but added that this was long-term advice and no immediate evacuation was necessary. Tokyo Electric Power, the operator of Fukushima, could face special losses of up to 2 trillion yen (£14.4bn) this year due to compensation claims and ongoing repair work, according to a research note put out by JP Morgan. Shares in Tepco have lost three-quarters of their value since the massive quake and tsunami on 11 March, amid complaints about the firm’s lack of communication on the scale of the disaster. JP Morgan said Tepco could face 554bn yen of extraordinary losses in the financial year ended last month for scrapping the crippled plant and bringing thermal power plants back on line.Analysts at the bank said the company could also face 2 trillion yen in damages claims from those affected by the Fukushima crisis, unless the government grants an exception to its liability.

The broker was pleasantly surprised by ASOS’s sale growth in the last three months of the financial year, which more than offset extra investment in promotional offers. JP Morgan thinks the rise in expenditure is already paying off in sales transactions, though a slowdown in international markets could give cause for concern down the line, it says. HIGHTEXNumis says the construction materials specialist’s problem has been that following three contract wins worth an aggregate €45.3m (£40.1m) in 2009, the firm has failed to clinch any major deals. However, it says that given the prospect for multiple contract wins, Hightex’s fortunes could still revive dramatically. Hightex’s pipeline of near term prospects, worth an aggregate €140m, justifies Numis’ renewed “buy” stance, it says.TESCOEvolution expects lacklustre results next week, with underlying UK like-for-likes expected to be negative in the second half. It says international performance is likely to have been better in Asia, as highlighted in December’s analyst trip, but more mixed in Europe, where Evo expects Ireland to have been particularly tough. Given Tesco’s reliance on a difficult UK market, the broker sees little room for positive surprise and rates the firm “sell”.

This FTSE 100 stock offers growth and income, but dig in and wait for rewards With a price-to-earnings ratio of around 25, shares in global alcoholic beverages company Diageo (LSE: DGE) are not cheap. Sometimes, though, you have to pay a hefty price for quality, and in the long run, ‘quality will out’.The story of Diageo is not a long one; the company was formed in 1997 with the merger of Guinness and Grand Metropolitan, but some of its its brands go back to the 19th century and in the case of Guinness itself, to 1759.5G 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…The Diageo strengthsThat it has passed the lesson of history is part of the company’s strength, and it is hard to think of a reason why this should change. If you like to invest in companies or products with long track records, then Diageo has got that track record in spirit – pun intended – even if the company itself is only in its 20s.Another reason to be positive about Diageo shares is the company’s global reach. The company sells into 180 countries and has been seeing rapid growth in emerging markets thanks to the increasing popularity of its premium brands.So, that is two boxes ticked: proven track record, global reach. By investing in this one company, you achieve a degree of diversification because its business is not reliant on any one particular region.  Then there is the performance of the share price — up around 18% over the last 12 months, up around 40% over the last five years, and up roughly eight-fold this century.The downsideThe company is a solid dividend payer, but that is also where ‘the case against’ begins. Diageo’s dividend yield last year was just 2%. That’s not terrible, but many companies, even companies operating in the same sector, pay out a lot more. On the other hand, over the next couple of years, the company will also hand out £4.5bn to shareholders, which is around 6% of market cap, through either a share buyback or a special dividend. Investors can’t rely on this payment being repeated in the future, but it is not unlikely.Another potential risk with Diageo is its exposure to emerging markets at a time when many fear an economic slowdown in these regions. International exposure is a plus, because it protects you against weakness in your home economy, but it also exposes you to changing economic conditions abroad.Quality will out, eventually Diageo is not for investors looking for a quick return, but consider this point. If you had bought shares in the company 10 years ago, then today, even without the special dividends/buyback, dividends would be at around 6% of what you paid. That’s what buying quality often means – good long-term returns. Sure emerging markets may be set for a difficult few years, but looking further forward, and they will surely recover. Diageo is a quality stock for investors with a longer time horizon. It won’t make you rich overnight, but would be a solid addition to a portfolio designed to give longer-term value with limited risk.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Choosing good companies for your Stocks and Shares ISA portfolio is one thing, but it also pays to check whether the sector they operate in is also healthy.Taylor made for youAfter the 2016 EU referendum shock, investors dumped housebuilding stocks en masse, believing the sector would be hammered by the economic uncertainty to come. Pretty much every stock fell as one, regardless of their individual prospects.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…They have been rising as one ever since, as demand for property has held firm, underpinned by the housing shortage and Help to Buy scheme.Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) has been a beneficiary, rising almost a third in the last 12 months alone. Measured over five years, the Taylor Wimpey share price is up more than 60%, despite the post-Brexit crash in the middle of that period.The FTSE 100 stock is up aother 4% today, following publication of a promising trading statement for the year ended 31 December 2019, ahead of next month’s full-year results.CEO Pete Redfern said results are in line with expectations, despite political and economic uncertainties, as the group continues to experience “a good level of demand for our homes”, with second-half trading as anticipated.Capital challengeThe housing market remains stable, although conditions are a bit more challenging in London and the South East, and at the more expensive end of the market.Taylor Wimpey completed 5% more houses, 15,719 in total, with the reservation rate rising strongly and cancellation rates low. House price growth is flattening, though, up just 1% on private completions to an average of £305,000.I like to see a strong order book, as this suggests healthy demand and earnings going forward, and here Taylor Wimpey doesn’t disappoint. At the end of last year, it recorded record total orders of £2.18bn, up 22% over 12 months. One headwind is that building costs rose 4.5%, although cost pressures appear to have eased lately.The right balanceAn economic slowdown or house price crash is always a threat when holding housebuilding stocks but Taylor Wimpey has a strong balance sheet, with net cash of £546m at the end of last year giving protection against any downturn. That is despite paying £600m in dividends to shareholders last year, up from £500m the year before.I like investing in cash-generative businesses like this one, especially when they are so keen for shareholders to benefit. As Taylor Wimpey previously announced, it intends to return £610m to shareholders this year, as a total dividend.The housing market has been anticipating a ‘Boris bounce’ ever since the election, and today Taylor Wimpey welcome the increased political stability.Despite this positive outlook, the £6.8bn company trades at a modest valuation of just 9.7 times earnings, giving scope for further share price recovery, and a cushion against any setbacks. The forecast yield is a whopping 9.3%, making this one of the most generous income stocks on the FTSE 100. Buy now and you could enjoy a share of next year’s bumper £610m dividend spree, with the hope of more to come.last_img read more

The key to successful investing is to buy and hold onto companies for a number of years. Such a strategy allows people like you and me the luxury of not worrying about temporary financial market volatility. It also improves our chances of being able to retire rich.Market crashes always cause good-to-great stocks to plummet along with the bad. And this provides investors with the chance to buy into some choice bargains. But here ISA investors need to be hugely careful and not be seduced by rock-bottom earnings multiples and market-beating dividend yields. In many cases low valuations are a sure sign of dangerous stocks that could rob you of your wealth.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…Retail woesIt’s often said that bricks and mortar investments are some of the safest out there. In some cases that couldn’t be more wrong, however. Just ask shareholders over at Intu Properties. This shopping mall operator has seen its share price erode 98% in the past 12 months as UK high street conditions have worsened. On Friday, struggles to collect rents and reduce its debt mountain caused Intu to fall into administration.Glass-half-full investors might be looking at other retail property owners and their low valuations, though, and thinking now is the time to get in on the action. The easing of lockdown measures in the UK has improved the profits outlook for physical retailers and their landlords, right? Not if data from the Confederation for British Industry (CBI) is anything to go by.Scary surveyA survey released by the CBI reveals the chilly outlook for the country’s retailers. The easing of Covid-19 quarantine measures meant that sellers of non-essential items reopened their doors on 15 June. But according to the study such retailers have “extremely negative” sales expectations and reckon trade next month will be worse than in July 2019.A perceived lack of demand was the biggest worry for 62% of retailers. Workforce issues due to school closures, cost pressures, and transport difficulties were also cited as serious issues that could damage profits.The key to retiring rich lies elsewhereIt’s on the cards that Britain’s non-food retailers face a torrid task beyond next month. A severe economic downturn threatens to keep consumers’ wallets firmly tightened well into 2021 at least. The threat posed by online retailers is one that overshadows the physical operators for much longer, too. Incidentally, that CBI report shows that despite the broader malaise in the broader retail sector, online sales are expected to grow at an even faster rate in July than in June.For all these reasons, I’m happy to pass on FTSE 100 retail property giants Land Securities and British Land. Their historically low forward price-to-earnings ratios of 15 times don’t appeal to me considering their rapidly deteriorating profits outlook. They are in significant danger of going the same way as Intu, in my opinion. And so I’d rather buy other Footsie shares to help me retire rich.

The design for the house, which is used by the family mainly as holiday home, was constrained by planning issues that to some extent dictated the built footprint and its position on the site. Very tight size restrictions forced the design to push windows to the outside of the envelope, not allowing any overhangs which would be included in an area calculation, therefore reducing the actual built area. However, within the allowable area there was provision for the inclusion of a conservatory, and one challenge was how to successfully integrate this with architecture devoid of the normal connotations of a lean-to structure.Save this picture!© Luke HayesSave this picture!© Luke HayesThe very simple building is also driven by economics of construction.

Desmond Bane’s career-high leads men’s basketball to season sweep of Texas and return to NCAA Tournament contention

He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. printTCU guard Desmond Bane finishes in transition for two of his career-high 34 points. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto. Having lost six of their last seven games, the Horned Frogs needed to win in Austin against the Longhorns to preserve their NCAA Tournament dreams. Saturday, TCU entered as the first team outside of ESPN’s Joe Lunardi’s projected bracket. Desmond Bane delivered in a huge way. He scored a career-high 34 points in TCU’s 69-56 win as the Horned Frogs swept the Longhorns for the second time in head coach Jamie Dixon’s three seasons. TCU is now 5-1 against Texas under Dixon. “It’s going to be a different guy every night, and tonight just happened to be my night,” TCU guard Desmond Bane said. “Coach Dixon had us running different parts of our offense that got open looks for my teammates and myself, and I was able to get going. Coach was talking about this as a must-win game, and we came out and played like it was a must-win game.”The junior’s 34 came on an efficient 14-of-20 shooting from the field and 6-of-8 from beyond the three-point line. “When he starts getting it going, you notice it and just start talking,” TCU center Kevin Samuel said. “He brings that energy, so we start looking for him every time on plays.”The last time Bane scored the way he did was back in high school at Seton Catholic where he totaled 62 points in a game.“It feels close, I guess, just on a smaller scale,” he said. “I felt good for sure, but 60 is ridiculous. It’s crazy I still remember, I think I took 31 shots then.”The opening 10 minutes were back-and-forth, but a three-and-a-half minute scoring drought allowed Texas to take a six-point edge, 22-16, with 7:08 to play. However, TCU began playing with a sense of urgency, natural for a team in their position, concluding the half on a 19-5 run. A couple of free throws from point guard Kendric Davis drew the Horned Frogs within four, 22-18. That’s when Bane erupted. The junior, who was TCU’s leading scorer in their 65-61 win over Texas on Jan. 23, poured it on with nine consecutive points. The first six came from driving lay-ups and the last three came from long distance in the left corner. “He has to take open shots and get looks in transition, and we also got him a three at the start,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “We said we needed to get a shot early for Desmond, so we ran a play from Coach Scott Cross’s time at UT-Arlington and got him a shot. It got Desmond going, so it was huge and a good start for us.”Bane finished the first 20 minutes with 12 points on an efficient 5-of-7 shooting. At the conclusion of his scoring stretch, the Horned Frogs had a five-point lead, 27-22, with 2:57 in the half.Texas’ guard Elijah Mitrou-Long would connect from three shortly after and guard Matt Coleman III hit a couple free throws but TCU closed the half with a tip-in at the rim from Kouat Noi and back-to-back corner three-pointers from RJ Nembhard and JD Miller. In total, the Horned Frogs connected on seven of their last nine shots to end the first half.TCU guard RJ Nembhard runs back on defense after hitting a three-pointer at the end of the first half against Texas. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto. Bane’s second-half began much like his first as he drilled a three. A dunk from TCU center Kevin Samuel shortly followed. Texas center Jaxson Hayes interrupted with a throw-down, which Samuel countered with another dunk. A fast-break lay-up from Bane occurred shortly thereafter as the Horned Frogs built a 13-point cushion, 44-31.Bane’s fast-break finish also gave him 17 points with 16:28 left to play, which matched his game-high 17 points scored in TCU’s Jan. 23 65-61 victory over Texas in Fort Worth.With 13:36 to go, he knocked down his fourth-straight three-pointer to hit the 20-point mark and put TCU up 14, 50-36.Another area that was critical to the Horned Frogs’ 13-point win over Texas in Austin was rebounding, a stat usually indicative of hustle and energy. On the road, TCU out-rebounded Texas by 11, 35-24. “We knew we were going to come around and rebounding was an emphasis and we knocked some bodies around,” Bane said. “If you out-rebound a team on the road, it’s clear, especially by 11, the energy and effort that you’re playing with. It was huge for us.”TCU guard RJ Nembhard hauled in a game-high seven boards. Bane was right behind him with six. Bane’s energy and play going forward will be a significant factor in whether or not TCU can win a game in the Big 12 Tournament to cement their claim as an NCAA Tournament in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1952-1953.

As a precaution, these vehicle components should be checked periodically during summer to help avoid breakdowns and car problems.Excessive heat and overcharging shorten the life of a battery. Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, which then damages the internal structure of the battery. A malfunctioning component in the charging system, usually the voltage regulator, allows too high a charging rate, which will eventually destroy a battery. your car’s battery is the type that needs to be topped off, check it often, especially in hot weather and add distilled water if necessaryThe cooling system also works harder during hot temperatures to prevent overheating of the engine. To keep the cooling system working effectively, the coolant and distilled water mixture for a vehicle’s radiator should be 50:50. Remember to never open a hot radiator cap when checking the coolant level in the reservoir. As a rule of thumb, the coolant should be changed annually on most vehicles.Tires also need special care in warmer weather as high temperatures put added stress on them. Summer heat will cause the pressure within a tire to rise, therefore, it’s important to check the pressure when tires are cold.JK Volvo is located at 1587 East Walnut in Pasadena.
