Is this the cheapest the Lloyds share price is ever going to get?

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. 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. Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” By mid-afternoon Thursday, the Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) share price sat at a new 52-week low of 46.42p (and might drop even lower before the end of trading).Since coronavirus-led fears precipitated the latest stock market sell-off, Lloyds shares have declined faster than the FTSE 100. The shares have not been this cheap since as long ago as 2012, so we’re looking at an eight-year period of stagnation.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…Have the shares really, finally, fallen as low as they’re going to? As a long-suffering Lloyds shareholder, I keep hoping so, but my hopes keep getting dashed. And, as my Motley Fool colleague Jonathan Smith has suggested, there’s a fair chance the Lloyds share price will fall further in the coming months.OversoldBut I still see the shares as oversold. What we’re looking at is a combination of factors that are negatively affecting the outlook for Lloyds. It is facing an uncertain future as a UK-centric retail bank, especially as there’s a serious risk that Boris Johnson will fail to secure a good post-Brexit trade deal.But there’s nothing new there, and investors fully understood that when the shares were trading above 55p just a few weeks ago.The bank’s full-year results, released on 20 February, perhaps looked a little disappointing. But a big part of the hardship came from the costs of the PPI mis-selling scandal. There was an extra £2.45bn hit, taking the total to a staggering £21.9bn. That was far worse than originally feared, and it led Lloyds to call off its share buyback in 2019 — it had returned £1.1bn that way in 2018.VisionLloyds’ failure to anticipate the full scale of PPI costs, leading to it paying out more cash to shareholders than might have been prudent, will surely have raised doubts over the board’s clarity of vision. It did with me.But again, there was really nothing unexpected there, and the share price actually blipped up slightly on results day. That market reaction wasn’t a ringing endorsement for the future of Lloyds, but nor was it a condemnation of the outlook.That brings us back to the coronavirus, as it’s really the only new development that’s coinciding with the latest share price weakness. Nobody really has any idea how bad the end result will be, but we can be pretty sure we’re past any possibility of the UK preventing a significant outbreak. What might that mean for Lloyds?DividendI reckon it’s all down to fears for the dividend. While confidence in the dividend remained reasonably high, I think that was helping maintain some support for the share price. But I’m seeing a straw and camel’s back situation here, and any virus-led banking slowdown could be the final factor that leads Lloyds to cut its payments.But saying that, I still don’t see it happening. I expect Lloyds will do its utmost to avoid over-reacting to short-term threats, and will be very keen to maintain its dividend unless we genuinely see a long-term downturn.Meanwhile, the forecast 2020 dividend would yield 7.6% on the current share price.

Esker house / Plasma Studio

Esker Haus (esker=stratified geological formation) is a self-contained residential unit placed on top of an existing house from the 1960s. The project has been developed as a parasite which started from adopting the structure of the host and gradually differentiated into its own unique organization and morphology. Save this picture!The project is formed by a series of steel and timber frames that deform to recreate the smooth hillsides of the surrounding dolomites. This partly accessible roofscape also determines the spatial character inside- the spaces are enfolded by an angular and dynamic series of planes creating new and ever-changing perspectives and spatial constellations. The unique stratified morphology and construction system started off from projecting each step of the external staircase as a modulor that then was proliferated as frames. These frames enable the subsequent deformation and softening of the overall geometry. Save this picture!The split level organization leads to the lengthening of parts of the stairs to form a topography for informal occupation. The overall spatial character is that of an echelon with a diffusion of functions and conditions where inside and outside, above and below become gradient zones of varying intensity. These interleave as a loop that transgresses from the most private zone of bedroom and bathroom via kitchen, dining and living rooms towards the more public and exposed territory of the various terraces. The interior spaces are the reflection of the exterior geometry with folded planes accentuating the flow through the open split-level plan.Their character is determined by the transgressions from the Cartesian orthogonal layout (determined in part by the structure below and functional requirements) towards the soft and fluid morphology of the roofscape. Save this picture!Site, program and organization To consider building a new dwelling on top of an existing house is a relevant and valuable approach, leaving ground undeveloped elsewhere and creating higher density. Plasma’s process of charging each project from its ground and context becomes here even more specific. The existing house is composed of two parts with different levels. Structural walls, chimneys, drainage and other infrastructural lines organized the site into a mesh of constraints. Save this picture!We challenged the standard pitched and overhanging roof and instead developed a rich texture of different occupiable spaces. On the outside these are a podium that leads to the top of the roof within a dip, a semi-covered pergola beneath it, a long terrace as extension to the south of the living room. Save this picture!Design process Given that the existing house has two ‘wings’ with different roof levels, we started from a simple diagram of two boxes forming a ‘T’, allowing plenty of external space for terraces to the South. Save this picture!The lower Western box became the living zone with the upper Eastern box to contain the master bedroom, bathroom, 2nd bedroom and kitchen. Bringing the access as external staircase along the North side enabled the definition of the entrance along the seam between the two zones creating a hinge area for distribution. Save this picture!From this external staircase the rhythm of each step was then proliferated as frames that became deformed to produce a soft intertwining of roof and walls as continuous artificial topography. This produces a variety of outdoor environments for sitting on the roof and enjoying great views all around or beneath sheltered from wind and sun. Save this picture!Tectonics and construction The conceptual and geometric striation was translated into a series of outside steel belts from which prefabricated composite wall/ceiling panels are suspended. Small T-sections span in perpendicular direction to the major steelwork to support the additional timber sections that complete the outer layer. Save this picture!All the different systems are interdependent and it was vital to work with a specialist contractor that was able to produce all fabrication information directly from our 3D computer model.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessMies van der Rohe Award 2009 finalists announcedArticlesAD Interviews: Joshua Prince-Ramus / REXArticles Share CopyHouses•San Candido, Italy Architects: Plasma Studio Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officePlasma StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan CandidoWoodHousesItalyPublished on February 11, 2009Cite: “Esker house / Plasma Studio” 11 Feb 2009.

Assignment and clients’ wish was to create a building that has a “roof”, is contemporary and unique and is not just another modern functionalist box …Save this picture!© Ester HavlováInstead of transforming the traditional morphology of the house with traditional roof, which can be seen in different variants on adjacent estates, we deliberately chose an opposite approach, which allowed us to get rid of stereotypes in anticipation of what the house should look like. We decided to design it as an organically shaped object, which contains mass with functional interior layout, while the softly undulating roof plane is a loose copy of the line of hill Hořický located on the other side of the valley.Save this picture!© Ester HavlováThe simple interior layout is arranged around the transparent entrance area, situated in the approximate center of mass of the object. One of the most important requirements for design of the house was a large aquarium. During the search of final design, it occurred in different parts of the main living space. The last option, in which the aquarium is a part of the office and is directly connected to the living room, has proven the best and was subsequently implemented.Save this picture!© Ester HavlováSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ester HavlováIndoor living space is extended to the exterior by sheltered terrace protected on three sides. This comfortable outdoor space immediately adjacent to the dining room and inserted into a space with unobstructed view of the landscape significantly extends the possibilities of the house and is often used by its inhabitants. The terrace is also ending the covered walkway that allows walking around the house with “dry feet” even in less favorable weather conditions.Save this picture!© Ester HavlováWhile the house is a distinctive solitaire, the winery, which has relation to the professional life of clients, can easily be overlooked in the garden since it is mostly recessing under the ground. Just as in the case of the house, the interior of the wine cellar is extended by an outdoor terrace. This is left uncovered. It is protected from all four sides, thereby achieving maximum privacy while maintaining the necessary contact with the exterior, in this case with the sky.Save this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Ester HavlováSave this picture!SectionSince the clients are very busy people, the assignment included minimization of burdening them with issues in the process of realization. Therefore, we did not only design the house, but we also completely realized it.Save this picture!© Ester HavlováThe vertical structure of the house is made from ceramic walls. Thermal insulation of facades is from thermal insulation composite system. Roof structure above the internal space of the house is made from prefabricated panels. Protruding parts of the roof are from wooden beams covered with Knauf AQUAPANEL® system. Garden winery is made from waterproof concrete, which is left exposed without surface treatment. Openings are solved with aluminum Schüco system and triple-glazed insulating windows. The building has very low energy consumption; it is evaluated as level B – very efficient.Product Description: AQUAPANEL® Cement Board technology – delivers a complete revolutionized the design and construction of buildings across Europe. It is a building material with an extremely long life, which creates a massive and dry surface that can withstand extreme moisture and climatic influences. Cement sheets are easy to install and offer decisive advantages while minimizing installation costs.We used AQUAPANEL® Cement Board in this project to create the facade and ceiling in the shaped part of the terrace. In this way, we acquired solid base for application of facade screed.

Cooler Temps to Follow Hot, Dry Period

first_img Dry-and-warm-harvest-weatherRyan MartinThis is the first of a series of special harvest weather forecasts with Hoosier Ag Today chief meteorologist Ryan Martin, and they will be featured each Friday through the harvest season and online at the Hoosier Ag Today website.Harvest is going to get a boost in Indiana, according to Martin, from dry weather the next several days.“Also helping the fact that temperatures are going to be above normal this weekend through the first part of next week,” he said. “We could be looking at near record temperatures in parts of the state. So this is going to aid quick dry down and quick maturity of crops that are right on the edge.”After that period though, temperatures will start to shift, and by Wednesday there is a chance of rain.“We do see a fairly significant front moving across the Corn Belt this upcoming week,” Martin says. “It puts down some moisture in the western Corn Belt probably Tuesday, but I also see this front falling apart as it moves across Indiana. So, the day to watch is next Wednesday. I’m expecting a few clouds, maybe some spits and sprinkles there, but in terms of significant precipitation I don’t expect much on Wednesday. The biggest change you will see in harvest conditions will be a significant drop in temperatures from well above normal down to near normal, maybe even a bit below. Temperatures will be the most dramatic change over the course of the next seven days.The harvest weather forecast is sponsored by Seed Consultants and Kokomo Grain, and if you would like it emailed to you, sign up at By Andy Eubank – Sep 22, 2017 Cooler Temps to Follow Hot, Dry Period Home Indiana Agriculture News Cooler Temps to Follow Hot, Dry Period Facebook Twitter Previous articleAre Those Big Corn Yields Really Out there?Next articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for September 22, 2017 Andy Eubank SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

The work can be used by water management districts to assess the precise shape and size of aquifers and the impact of the region’s water use on those aquifers. The work also reveals what could be a previously unmapped fault running across northeast Orange County.“What we see through the rising and falling of the ground surface is the elastic response of the land to regular changes in groundwater level,” says lead author Bryan Riel (MS ’14, PhD ’17), who was a graduate student in the lab of Caltech’s Mark Simons at the time of the research, and is now a signal analysis engineer at JPL, which is managed by Caltech for NASA. “Because we have data over a long period of time, we were also able to isolate long-term surface deformation signals, including subsidence of the land that seems to be caused by compaction of clay layers in response to background variations in groundwater withdrawal.” Riel and Simons were also able to see sharp features where water was not flowing, which can indicate boundaries of aquifers as well as faults.The study, which was published online on April 30 by the journal Water Resources Research, uses publicly available radar data captured between 1992 and 2011 by European Space Agency satellites. The satellite data was compiled into 881 radar interferograms—images created by bouncing radar signals off of the earth’s surface—to track nearly vertical ground motion down to the millimeter with a horizontal resolution of tens of meters, over an area that stretches from San Fernando, northwest of downtown Los Angeles, down to Irvine, in Orange County.When all of the images are stitched together, they show the ground beneath Southern California rising and falling annually, like a giant breathing in and out. The results were checked against GPS measurements taken by the Orange County Water District (OCWD) and the Water Replenishment District of Southern California, which corroborated the findings. The periodic rising and falling of the ground tells the story of the management of Southern California’s aquifers and how that management has changed over time, says Simons, the John W. and Herberta M. Miles Professor of Geophysics at Caltech and JPL chief scientist.“At the beginning of the study period, we see big sinusoids—higher highs and lower lows. Toward the later half of the study, that flattens out a bit, indicating that water control districts were more actively managing aquifers, and making sure to put water back into them instead of just taking it out,” Simons says.Roy Herndon, chief hydrogeologist for the OCWD, says that his team works to make sure that the ground never sinks too far—a development from which it might never recover.“We suspect that the geology of our basin might allow subsidence to occur if we allowed too much groundwater to be pumped out but never refilled it. We have clays and silts that can compress and compact with time,” Herndon says.That strategy is codified in the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown in 2014, which dictates that groundwater managers need to avoid permanent lowering of the ground level. The phenomenon has plagued the San Joaquin Valley of Central California for generations. Soil compaction driven by a shrinking water table has caused the ground in the area to subside by as much as 28 feet, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Herndon says that the study by Riel, Simons, and co-authors—and other surveys like it—will help water districts make sure that their water management strategies are effective at avoiding such soil compaction in California.While the rising and falling of the ground was to be expected, the radar data also showed some unexpected features, Simons says, including a sharp boundary at the edge of an aquifer, which could indicate a buried fault along the eastern edge of a basin where the Santa Ana River passes through the Santa Ana/Garden Grove area. In addition, the map revealed a small area with anomalously large ground level uplift that turned out to be caused by petroleum operations pumping oil out and water in.Riel, Simons, and co-authors relied upon data from ESA satellites. Meanwhile, JPL, NASA, and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are planning to launch a new radar satellite called NISAR in early 2022 that will provide observations from two directions every 12 days—providing higher-quality, higher-resolution data than have previously been available.“With that kind of data, we’ll be able to paint an even clearer picture that could reveal even more about the ground beneath our feet,” Simons says.The study is titled “Quantifying Ground Deformation in the Los Angeles and Santa Ana Coastal Basins Due to Groundwater Withdrawal.” Other co-authors include Daniel Ponti of the USGS; JPL’s Piyush Agram, who is a visiting associate at Caltech; and Romain Jolivet of the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France.
