£2k spare? I’d aim to grow it with these FTSE 100 stocks right now!

first_img Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. With £2,000, it may be tempting to jump on the next get-rich-quick bandwagon.I’m sure you will have heard of people making a fortune with Bitcoin or buy-to-let properties.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…Each of these investments has a catch. While buy-to-let initially sounds reasonable, large fees will often be accrued, there will be tax implications, and your investment will be challenging to liquidate. Bitcoin’s catch is that it has no underlying value, other than what people will pay for it. It’s more like speculation than investing. When you buy stocks, you literally own something: a portion of the business. There’s another bonus to investing in stocks. Looking back, shares have outperformed most other investments. I must not that it is possible that history may not repeat itself.But taking this into account and with the tax-free nature of a Stocks and Shares ISA, I think this makes the asset the best thing for individuals to invest in.With £2,000 spare, I’d look to buy some shares in these two FTSE 100 companies.AstraZenecaAstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) has made significant progress in the past few years.Partly this is due to its increased investment in research and development. A benefit of this action is that the company has new drugs in the pipeline.CEO Pascal Soriot, who joined the company in 2012, must take some credit for turning the company around. As a result, AstraZeneca’s share price has increased by 60% in the past five years.Of particular note is the sales growth from AstraZeneca’s new oncology drugs. In its full-year results, growth for these drugs was reported to have grown by 47%. The company anticipates that 2020 will “be another year of significant growth”.In 2019, total revenue increased by 13%.On news of the results, AstraZeneca’s share price was trading broadly flat. This could be due to worries about how the coronavirus might affect the company’s results.LloydsIn the past, I’ve had concerns about Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) due to the uncertainty of Brexit, and the bank’s domestic focus. This led me to prefer rivals with more international exposure, such as HSBC.Now that Brexit seems a bit clearer, I think it’s time to re-evaluate Lloyds.As my fellow-Fool, Harvey Jones, points out, the bank has become a leaner company. It has cut jobs and closed branches, focussing on its core enterprises.It turns out, I wasn’t the only investor with concerns over the bank. Lots of people have been avoiding it or selling their shares. Over the previous five years, the Lloyds share price has dropped by 23%.This could be good news for investors looking to pick up a bit of a bargain. The share price is currently trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of just 10, and has a prospective dividend yield of 5%.With its more focused operation, I think Lloyds could now be a great value buy. It might also be a great buy for income investors, especially those with a long term horizon.By reinvesting the dividends, compound interest could work in your favour, potentially helping you retire that much quicker. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom From CNN Federal authorities warned Friday that ISIS sympathizers “continue aspirational calls for attacks on holiday gatherings, including targeting churches.” The bulletin was issued by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security and issued to law enforcement agencies and private security companies around the United States. There are no known specific, credible threats, US law enforcement officials say. The bulletin was issued out of an abundance of caution given the public nature of the posted threats and the holiday season. The bulletin was sent Friday to law enforcement after pro-ISIS websites had published a publicly-available list of churches in the United States.The bulletin also describes the different signs of suspicious activity law enforcement should be aware of. In the past, public threats by ISIS supporters have focused on military and law enforcement targets. The more recent threats have expanded to include the type of attacks we saw in Berlin, Nice, France and Columbus, Ohio.last_img read more

The extensive and complex program of this holiday house led us to embrace an architectural concept that subdivided all functions in different constructive blocks. The result is a group of volumes with different functions interconnected through circulations axis, that could successfully solve the program in a way that is gentle and articulated, both with the irregular corner format and terrain site. The volumes were positioned along with the sunnier facades and the correlation between indoors and outdoors of the countryside landscape. Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Plan – Ground FloorSave this picture!© Nelson KonThe facilities block faces south and is made of traditional masonry, cladded and painted in white. It outlines the main volume, that has two floors in concrete above steel columns and faces the northeast and the most pleasurable view. The third volume has an inferior level which hosts the guest’s bedrooms, spa and sauna. Although this volume is away from the house, it is interconnected through a glass pergola roof. Save this picture!© Nelson KonAll volumes together result in an “L” site plan around the pool courtyard, on mid level of the terrain respecting the natural topography of the site.

A carefully crafted renovation of a much-treasured Californian Bungalow, the Elwood House focuses on enhancing the original character of the structure and enriching the experiences in the house. Drawing on the owner’s diverse range of personal objects, interests, places of travel, this home is rich in both narrative and texture.Save this picture!© Jack LovelSave this picture!Save this picture!© Jack LovelThis home is not about grand statements. Maintaining the majority of the original house, the plan is simple and traditional, with a characteristic side entry, central hallway and adjoining small rooms. In line with the standard bungalow palate, the new interior uses the dark local timbers offset against stucco and hard plaster, in new ways to create texture, and play of light. Transforming throughout the day, the design nurtures a quiet sanctuary to reflect on the passage of time. Drawing on the inspirations for Bungalow architecture, the redesign also builds on a rustic Japanese vernacular to create an elegant, yet unpretentious living space. The integration the client’s eclectic collection, forms a deeply personal connection between form and more meaningful function.Save this picture!© Jack LovelIt is not about open plan. Retaining a cosy cottage feel, the modest addition focuses on intimacy and connection to the garden. The client works from home so the spaces need to be flexible but also to provide a variety of experiences within one dwelling. Each space is small with independent functions, custom-made for one, but capable of expanding for gatherings. The result is a private retreat. It’s relaxing, warm, safe and unassuming.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe house cannot be separated from the landscape that grounds it. From the entry, the garden provides a desirable sense of privacy and helps refresh the traditional architecture. At various moments through the program, the gardens are framed to created continuous connections to the exterior. At the rear, new openings and glazing link these spaces and carefully frame views of the naturalistic landscape beyond. The substantial garden at the back it’s the ultimate retreat with a modest pool and stunning plantings. Intrinsically a respected bungalow house, the Elwood House is a modernised living environment where the client’s memories and achievements are celebrated, while providing serene moments for reflection.Save this picture!© Jack LovelProject gallerySee allShow lessVitaland Kid Restaurant / Golucci Interior ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBuilding 8111 / taller de arquitectura de bogotáSelected Projects Share “COPY” Architects: Splinter Society Area Area of this architecture project Elwood House / Splinter Society Year:  Save this picture!© Jack Lovel+ 14Curated by Paula Pintos Share Houses ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920119/elwood-house-splinter-society Clipboard Landscape: 2018last_img read more

Rising Prices and Mortgage Rates Stall Home Sales

Previously, she served as managing editor of DS News and Southern Distinction, a regional lifestyle publication. Her work has appeared in a variety of print and online publications, including Consumers Digest, Dallas Style and Design, DS News and DSNews.com, MReport and theMReport.com. She holds degrees in journalism and art from the University of Georgia. Home sales declined for the fourth consecutive month with sharp drops in West Coast markets, according to the latest Real-Time Price Tracker from Redfin, a national real estate brokerage. The brokerage reported a 10.3 percent decline in sales across the country year-over-year in February.Only three of 19 markets tracked reported increases in sales over the year—Long Island (3.3 percent), Baltimore (1.9 percent), and Austin (1.9 percent).”The combination of steep price appreciation and rising mortgage rates is likely coming as a shock to many prospective buyers,” Redfin stated in its survey.With the spring selling season about to get underway, the company says March and April should offer insight into buyers’ willingness and ability to adapt to higher prices and mortgage rates—as well as sellers’ ability to price appropriately, a skill some are having to relearn to stay competitive.”This time last year, sellers could name their price and still get 20 to 30 offers,” said Los Angeles-based Redfin agent Eric Tan. “This year, even homes that are priced competitively are only seeing two or three offers come in, often at or below list price.”Home prices rose 13 percent over the year in February, with steep gains in the West Coast markets such as Las Vegas (25 percent); Sacramento (22.2 percent); and Riverside, California (21.7 percent).East Coast markets demonstrated much tamer price gains, according to Redfin. For example, prices were up 2 percent in Long Island, 4.7 percent in Washington D.C., and 6.6 percent in Boston.Housing inventory across Redfin’s 19 markets declined 5.6 percent over the year in February. However, in West Coast markets, where prices rose most, inventory also rose, according to Redfin.Several markets posted double-digit inventory gains over the year in February, including Phoenix (38.5 percent); Sacramento (23.9 percent); Riverside, California (22.8 percent); Ventura, California (22.1 percent); San Diego (18.6 percent); and Los Angeles (17.8 percent).Las Vegas, on the other hand, experienced a 35.3 percent decline in inventory.
