Karl Loomes | Wednesday, 27th May, 2020 | More on: NXT Throughout lockdown, clothing retailers have been one of the sectors I’ve been most bearish about. As I’ve said a thousand times, people don’t buy clothes to sit around the house. But things are starting to look up, with non-essential shops soon to reopen. This has me wondering, how will clothing giant Next (LSE: NXT) fare when it reopens?Bad timesNext itself warned at the end of last month that it expects it to take longer than previously expected for sales to bounce back after coronavirus. The company said the hit from lockdown was “faster and steeper” than it expected.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…Specifically, Next said that even under its best case scenario, it is expecting a 30% drop in full-price clothing sales for the year – about 10 points higher than its stress-test modelling.Though Next was able to reopen its online shop after a short interlude, one problem it faced is how closely its online shop is related to its bricks and mortar stores. About half of online orders are picked up in an actual shop.Combined with limited staff, it seems the online arm may not have been able to help the company as much as had been hoped. In addition, even when shops are reopened, social distancing rules will mean far fewer customers can visit stores at any one time.Next will also see costs associated with measurers to protect customers and staff, such as screens and new entry/exit measures.Good times Next?It may not all be bad news, however. Firstly, shops are set to reopen, as summer hits full force. Even with some lockdown measurers in place, people are becoming more able to socialise. New summer clothes will be needed, even if you are sitting with friends in the park and not the pub.There has also been some evidence in European countries, where a number of UK firms have been able to open stores, that people are buying more clothes (though perhaps fewer people buying them). This may help Next’s sales figures.Next also benefits from a strong brand and a decent financial position heading into the crisis. During lockdown, the company had about 84% of its workforce under the government furlough scheme.This may seem a like another sign of trouble, but I take it as a sensible cost saving measure, implemented quickly.Share priceAs always, the impact on the Next share price may not come from the numbers themselves, as much as expectations. In this sense, Next may be doing itself a favour by warning of bad times to come. Anything to the contrary – even if it is a ‘not so bad’ result, could help shares rather than hinder them.It is still very days to make these kinds of judgments. There is going to be a lot of uncertainty this year as lockdowns end, and clothes retailers could be among the most unpredictable. That said, I feel Next may be in a strong position all things considered.

The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar I’d avoid the MKS share price and buy these cheap UK stocks instead Image source: Getty Images Marks and Spencer (LSE: MKS) shares have declined in value substantially over the past few years. This performance may have attracted some value investors to the stock, but I believe this could be a mistake. Indeed, while the shares might look cheap today compared to their historical trading performance, the past performance of the MKS share price should never be used to guide future potential. The company has some fundamental weaknesses that don’t look as if they will go away any time soon. As such, I would avoid the business and buy the two cheap UK stocks outlined below instead.MKS share price: the issuesOver the past year, shares in MKS have fallen 5%. Over the past five years, the stock is off 60%. 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…This poor performance can be traced to the group’s collapsing profitability. In 2015 the retailer reported net profits of nearly £500m. That figure dwindled to £25m, falling to £24m in 2020. City analysts expect the group’s profits to remain subdued until 2022. That year, analysts forecast an income of £247m, but this is only a projection at this stage. There’s no guarantee M&S will hit this target. However, if the group manages to return to growth, investor sentiment towards the enterprise could dramatically change. That may lead to an improvement in the share price. However, it is impossible to tell at this stage. With so much uncertainty surrounding the outlook for the MKS share price, I’ve been focusing on other cheap UK stocks instead. Two companies in particular that have attracted my attention are Next (LSE: NXT) and Rentokil (LSE: RTO). UK stocks to buy Next has benefited over the past year from its expansive online operations. The online business has helped offset falling sales at brick-and-mortar stores. The company is planning to invest hundreds of millions of pounds in its online business over the next few years, which I think will lead to further growth in this division. That’s why I would buy the stock for my portfolio today. That being said, the UK retail industry is incredibly competitive, and just because Next is growing today does not mean that it will continue to do so. The recent failure of the retail group Arcadia shows that no matter how big a retail business becomes, it is never immune from the winds of change, and fortunes can quickly reverse. Pest control 2020 was an excellent year to be a rat. Figures show the UK rat population increased by 30m last year, as the rodents took over deserted office buildings and other locations humans had abandoned. This is great news for pest control business Rentokil. As one of the largest pest control groups globally, the company may benefit from increased demand for its services in the years ahead. And unlike retailers such as MKS and Next, rats don’t go out of fashion. There will always be a need for pest control services, which suggests Rentokil’s long-term outlook is encouraging. The company may face challenges, however, in the form of competition and interest rates, as it has a lot of borrowing on its balance sheet. Regulations may also strangle its ability to grow, and there’s always going to be the threat of reputation issues, which could hurt the brand. But considering the growth of the UK rat population, I would buy this stock for my portfolio today.

The Paragon Apartments lie north-east of the intersection of Prenzlauer Allee and Danzinger Strasse, between the dense block developments at Kollwitzplatz and Helmholzplatz and the open residential district bordering to the east. The new quarters, with 217 premium rental apartments, a kindergarten, a café and an organic supermarket, mediates between the urban qualities of the Prenzlauer Berg district and the adjacent park-like surroundings.Save this picture!© Kevin FuchsParagon augments the block without closing it entirely, and presents a unique hybrid of perimeter block and open building. The development, comprising one renovated building and two newly constructed buildings, offers a solution to the need for diversity in a modern and urban housing project. The starting point for the Paragon Apartments is a former hospital building located between Danziger Strasse and Fröbelplatz, that was built as a school in 1912. Its roof was dismantled and replaced with two new upper floors. Three other existing buildings, built at a later date, have been incorporated in the project and modified in size.Save this picture!Third floor planTwo new structures augment the existing buildings: one along Danziger Strasse and the other at the rear facing the Fröbelplatz. Together they connect to the perimeter block structure of the neighbourhood. The ensemble of Paragon Apartments has a total of three communal courtyards. A public space at the intersection creates an entrance situation that leads into the first inner courtyard, from which all apartments can be reached.Save this picture!© Kevin FuchsThe main entrance of the old hospital still exists and is reached from the first courtyard. The old hallways and existing staircases to the upper floors are likewise integrated into the new design. The high ceilings of the old building give the apartments a spacious quality, as does the addition of new balconies. The first courtyard can also be reached via an entrance from the Fröbelplatz, creating a partly private, partly public connection within the quarter leading from the urban front to the calm green of the park at the rear.Save this picture!© Kevin FuchsA community space that serves as a club room and includes a library for the tenants is situated on this path. GRAFT developed an efficient housing cube for the project: a 2-room apartment cube with a size of 37.5 m2 that forms a repeating module. Living and sleeping areas can be joined or divided by a sliding door. The bathroom, accessible from the hall and bedroom, joins the two as a passage. Fixed fittings within the cube are configured to maximise space in the apartment’s living and sleeping areas, giving the space a loft-like character despite its small size.Save this picture!© Kevin FuchsThe apartments in the new building on the Danziger Strasse have balconies of varying depth. Arranged next to and above one another in a shifting stacked pattern, they lend the façade an animated three- dimensional quality. Made of high-precision, light-coloured prefabricated concrete elements, with generous glazed surfaces, the projecting edges of the cubes serve as solar shades.Save this picture!© Kevin FuchsThe flexible concept of the cubes allows them to be combined to create larger apartments – up to 250 m2 – for the replacement roof structure on the old building. As such, the basic modular element the new building – its DNA so to speak – appears to emerge from the structure on the Danziger Strasse and continue on over the rooftops towards the Fröbelplatz, integrating the old and new buildings into an ensemble. Although the new structures of the ensemble offer diverse living spaces, the appearance of the façade remains homogenous.Save this picture!© Kevin FuchsThe perimeter block has not been closed entirely allowing the historical urban structure of the old building to remain visible and leaving the green courtyards open to their surroundings. In the heart of one of the densest areas of Berlin, the new Paragon Apartments provide a large number of apartments with green surroundings and views overlooking the park and courtyards.The ensemble’s three communal courtyards are green areas with seating, and include a playground for children and parking spaces for bicycles. A café and a kindergarten adjoin the first courtyard, and the third courtyard features a private garden that leads on to the neighbouring public park.Save this picture!© Kevin FuchsProject gallerySee allShow lessEagle Academy / Shinberg.Levinas Architectural DesignSelected ProjectsUrban Cinematics and the Revenge of Place / François Penz for the Shenzhen Biennale …ArticlesProject locationAddress:Danziger Str. 73, 10435 Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

The latest book by human rights attorney Dan Kovalik, “The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela,” is a critical primer on the U.S. government’s efforts to sabotage the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the future of its people.This is the fourth title in Kovalik’s “Plot” series, starting with “The Plot to Scapegoat Russia” (2017) followed by “The Plot to Attack Iran” and “The Plot to Control the World” (both 2018). This series exposes U.S. foreign policy and acts of “humanitarian intervention” perpetrated by the Star-Spangled Empire with impressive clarity.“The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela” features a foreword by filmmaker Oliver Stone, director of the documentary “South of the Border” (2009). As Stone writes, “With its one thousand or so bases around the globe, the U.S. is an empire dwarfing all others that preceded it by a huge magnitude, and yet, unlike all other empires, the U.S. will never consciously admit to its imperial status.”Washington has overthrown legitimate governments through military invasion and more covert means, investing in the leadership of oligarchs and military tyrants. “The Plot to Control the World” presented “emblematic cases” of U.S. interference in Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, which “had catastrophic results for the people and their pursuit of democracy and freedom.”As this review goes to press, the Trump administration is trying to bestow such a cruel fate upon Venezuela. “The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela” investigates the crimes, motives and historical context of the situation with intelligence and insight. In Kovalik’s words, “This ‘humanitarian intervention’ of the U.S. is nothing but an old-fashioned bank heist dressed up as something altruistic.”Washington has imposed barbaric sanctions upon Venezuela with deadly results. These sanctions have killed thousands of people, weakened infrastructure, prevented medicines from reaching those whose lives depended on them, and ended purchasing food from abroad. There are several motives for U.S. interference. The plundering of Venezuela’s natural resources, particularly oil, is at the top of the list.Venezuela is home to the largest amount of proven oil reserves in the world (opec.org), giving the country “a considerable advantage over the North American rival in terms of capital requirements and extractions costs,” according to worldatlas.com. This motive is what inspired the book’s subtitle, “How the U.S. Is Orchestrating a Coup for Oil.”Historical backgroundIn 1998, Hugo Chávez was elected president of Venezuela. He ran on a platform to uplift oppressed and marginalized peoples, oppose the imperialist entities robbing the country of its wealth and build a movement against neoliberal policies. When Chávez assumed office in 1999, the wheels of D.C. think tanks and the Pentagon were already in motion, devising ways to remove him.The majority of U.S. media outlets often act as stenographers and mouthpieces for the State Department. For example, The New York Times referred to the April 12, 2002, U.S.-backed kidnapping and attempted overthrow of Chávez as a “resignation,” calling him a “would-be dictator,” and sided with businessman and would-be replacement Pedro Carmona Estanga.When the 2002 coup attempt failed, the New York Times backpedaled with a follow-up editorial, which read in part, “Forcibly unseating a democratically elected leader, no matter how badly he has performed, is never something to cheer.” (April 6, 2002) And yet, the Times cheered, as did most U.S. corporate media, according to a report published by Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting. (June 1, 2002)Once again, these same media push for the most recent efforts to destabilize Venezuela. The current administration appointed neocon ideologue and Iran-Contra convict Elliot Abrams to lead these efforts, as he had in Guatemala and El Salvador decades earlier. While many journalists questioned Abrams’ appointment, few questioned his mission.Despite the media’s repeated attacks on the presidency of Donald Trump, when the Trump administration sounded the shrieking trumpets of regime change in Venezuela, many in the press corps lined up to defend this potential call for war. Media coverage has even influenced some who oppose the administration. Stone touches on the media’s impact, writing, “[I]f the U.S. is an Empire in this morality tale, then surely Venezuela and its people are the outgunned rebels. And yet, many Americans who should know better, including many liberals and self-proclaimed ‘leftists,’ find themselves rooting against them and for the Empire and its culture of death.”Unlike many of those who repackage White House talking points as news, Kovalik has been to Venezuela. Last year, he witnessed the May 20 elections when Maduro won the presidency with 67 percent of the vote. The election results were ignored by the Trump administration, which last January recognized an unelected, dubious Juan Guaidó as interim president.Why Venezuela mattersBesides presenting a wealth of information and sources, the book describes the resilience of the Venezuelan people and their collective strength in the ongoing struggle against external and internal subversion aimed at their country.Venezuela has suffered devastating power blackouts, oil tanks catching fire, assassination attempts on government leaders (most notably the attempt on Maduro via drone last Aug. 4) and other events that many believe the U.S. either organized or at least supported. The people of Venezuela have stood their ground in the face of such tribulations.As Kovalik correctly emphasizes, “The battle for Venezuela has huge implications for all humanity. None of us can stay neutral on this issue. And given the nefarious designs of the U.S. upon Venezuela, the suffering the U.S. is already bringing to the Venezuelan people through its regime change operations and the threat of global conflagration, it is incumbent upon us to resist the latest intervention.”“The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela” is now available from Hot Books, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Today, we’ve got Michael Cohen pleading guilty, Trump then calling him a liar, and the Affordable Care Act is under threat.Michael Cohen Pleads Guilty According to CNN, Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to making “false statements to Congress about the Russia investigation.”Cohen previously told Congress that the Moscow Project ended before the Iowa caucus and the first primary for the hope of ending the Russia investigation.His charge has a maximum sentence of five years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000 and a supervised release of no more than three years. Sentencing will occur on Dec. 12.The GM plant will close, but Trump doesn’t seem to think it is a big dealPresident Trump tweeted on Thursday morning that the “U.S.A. is booming!”According to ABC News, President Trump is continuing to claim that steel plants are opening all over the country, a false claim.The White House declined to elaborate on what the President referred to.President Trump canceled his meeting with PutinAccording to CNBC, President Trump was set to meet with Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, at the G-20 summit in Argentina, but he canceled this morning.President Trump blamed the cancellation on “the failure of Russia to return three ships and their sailors seized from Ukraine last weekend in the Black sea.”A spokesman for President Putin said the Kremlin has no information about his decision to cancel the meeting.Jeff Sessions jokes about getting a ‘pink slip’ from President TrumpFormer Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he embraced getting a ‘pink slip’ from President Trump this month.According to NBC News, Sessions resigned on Nov. 7 at Trump’s request, one day after the midterm elections.In his speech, Sessions said he was “satisfied and fulfilled” with what he accomplished and that he “got a new title: former. Pink slip.”Trump says Michael Cohen “is lying” about pleading guilty President Trump responded to Cohen’s guilty plea by saying he was lying.According to CBS News, President Trump believes Cohen is lying and is trying to receive a reduced sentence, adding that he isn’t a very smart person.Cohen worked as President Trump’s lawyer for many years and did him “a favor a long time ago.”The Affordable Care Act is under attack by the Trump administrationAccording to The Washington Post, the Trump administration is urging states to end the Affordable Care Act by taking away the rule that “federal insurance subsidies can be used only for people buying health plans in marketplaces created under the law.”The advice, issued today, said that states would be free to define the use of those subsides, something that has helped consumers to afford insurance sine 2014.If states take the advice, this would undermine the ACA’s changes to the nation’s insurance system.That’s all we have for today.

The 17-year-old junior was a qualifier for UIL Congress, also referred to as UIL Debate, and is preparing for a UIL academic contest March 23 at Frenship High School.For UIL Congress, Acosta said contestants spent most of their time on whether the United States should be more involved in North Korea and genetically modified organisms, how they should be labeled and how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration should change their regulations.Acosta said the students have to take one side or the other on the topics. OHS Speech and Debate Coach Aaron Cox said UIL Congress is like the body at the federal level in that they work on bills to get them passed. Cox said representatives who have watched the students in the UIL event are impressed by their knowledge of Roberts Rules of Order, the research they put in and their knowledge.Acosta said she got into third place, but didn’t make the finals at UIL Congress.“It was a good experience,” she said.Being in speech and debate has been very beneficial, Acosta said.“Since I’ve been doing Congress, I know somewhat what’s going on with the world. I used to stutter a lot and being in speech and debate has helped me a lot,” she said.For the poetry competition, students focus on work that has been published and a theme of either examining the world and how it has changed, or a second theme of taking a stand, which Acosta said she chose.Acosta said she chose a poem called “Last Night I Saw My Life Onstage” about a girl who stood up against her abusive boyfriend. She added that it includes the Billy Holliday song “Summertime.”Cox said he was pleased with how Acosta did in UIL Congress.“I think going against the schools like Plano and Richardson, I think she did very well,” Cox said.He added that the benefits of being in speech and debate are numerous. Cox said he currently has eight students in the program.“Once they go through a debate program, colleges love to see it on the transcript because we make them research so much farther than English or science do. We make them have to look at both sides, so they have to get a well-rounded view of the world. It helps them be able to present themselves so much better at job interviews or anything else in the real world. There’s nothing they cannot do once they get out of debate. … If they listen to their debate coach, there’s nothing they cannot conquer,” Cox said.He added that Acosta will be moving to Lincoln-Douglass debate next year.Acosta said she wants to be a lawyer.“I think that’s one of the main reasons why I joined debate, so I can argue and see both of the sides because that’s the job for the lawyer to do,” she said.MoreUIL Speech and Debate: uiltexas.org/speech Facebook Twitter
