Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares It wasn’t a shock to see Begbies Traynor Group’s (LSE: BEG) share price explode in 2019. Demand for such corporate insolvency specialists balloons in times of economic stress. So it’s no coincidence that the stock gained 47% in value as the UK economy hit the skids.If latest official data is anything to go by then trading should remain strong at Begbies Traynor too. In November, the economy shrank 0.3% month-on-month, according to the Office for National Statistics. On an annual basis, it grew just 0.6%, the worst result for seven years.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…SOS!The latest Red Flag Alert report from the company underlined how tough things are for British business right now.It said there are currently a shocking 494,000 companies in what it terms “significant financial distress”. This is the highest number on record. It’s also up 81% since the start of 2016.“Ongoing uncertainty around Brexit” drove the number of distressed firms to record levels, Julie Palmer, partner at Begbies Traynor, said. But cheerily she suggested that with “political certainty and a clear Brexit path,” business should be better equipped to plan in 2020.Conditions to remain toughUK commerce shouldn’t break out the bunting just yet, though. While visibility around the Brexit issue might be better, there are a number of other issues businesses have to battle this year and beyond.As executive chairman at Bebgies Traynor, Ric Traynor, noted: “The world faces a new set of economic challenges compared to 2016. Economic and business protectionism continues to spread, and the euro block economy is faltering. This, combined with a move towards carbon neutrality and the structural and economic changes affecting UK businesses, means that the challenges ahead are likely to be considerable.”Besides, as I’ve argued before, don’t expect Brexit-related tension to have gone away completely. It has merely taken a breather following December’s general election and the subsequent guarantee that Britain will exit the European Union at the end of January.However, with tense trade negotiations about to begin and very little time to resolve them, nerves could be set jangling again before long. Talks will officially start between London and Brussels on March 3, and the UK will leave the economic block without a deal unless they are resolved by December 31 .Sales are soaringBusiness at Begbies Traynor has certainly boomed in recent times. Revenue jumped 21% in the six months to October, to £33.8m, while pre-tax profit leapt 280% to £1.9m.And the Manchester company is investing heavily to capitalise on these favourable short-term trends and to lay the foundations for long-term growth (it raised £7.8m last year via a share placing to continue on the acquisition trail).No wonder City analysts expect annual earnings to keep growing by double-digit percentages. Rises of 18% and 17% are forecast for the fiscal years ending April 2020 and 2021 respectively. And at current prices, these estimates make Begbies Traynor a top value pick too. It currently trades on a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of 14.3 times.Despite recent price gains, this is a share that looks grossly undervalued to me. I’d happily buy it for my ISA today.

This is not only to respect an urban rule by returning the same volume of soil-grown, but also to preserve the maximum of an atypical plant heritage, to free the ground as much as possible to maximize the garden, and finally to structure it in order to generate depths of field and gradations in the perception.Save this picture!© Benoit FougeirolSurrounding this garden is a heritage, a juxtaposition of disparate buildings with the chapel at the center. Here again the question is rather landscaping than architectural.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe constructed elements are entangled; therefore generate a composition we may not dismantle. Then we retain as much as possible of its original implant to respect the ground floor with all the constructions juxtaposed in a U shape. Thus this whole built periods and architectural styles are preserved as witnesses of a complex past in which and from which we want to overlay a contemporary work.Save this picture!© Benoit FougeirolThis out of time organization generated a balance for the neighborhood, kind of a landscape stability with a structuralizing void, a punctuation in the street, a moment of silence. Aware of the mutation that will have the realization of a new project on the environment, we wondered on how we could give new qualities to the neighbors.Save this picture!© Benoit FougeirolThere is first the collapse of the wall which is replaced by a limit made of structural glass, totally transparent and opening completely the garden on the entire line on Rue de Saxe.Save this picture!© Benoit FougeirolThe new building is compact, built on stilts, and framing the view on a second field.

A modest, but well constructed, 1930s bungalow in a leafy Sydney suburban area is adapted for the times by Tribe Studio with a garden pavilion and a series of decorative flourishes, reducing its footprint and accommodating the new program in an extended gable roof form. Save this picture!© Katherine LuThe original house was well built and charming, with more than a touch of whimsy in its presentation: herringbone brick gables, a glorious brick sunburst over the door that is now reflected in the new rear extension, and a bit of Tudor detailing. However, siting, planning and energy efficiency were poor. Save this picture!© Katherine LuOur brief asked for the house to be converted to suit the lifestyle of a young family. That gave us the opportunity to address the garden more fully, to explore the character of the house and the character of the area, which is predominantly decorated single storey houses in beautiful leafy gardens. Save this picture!© Katherine LuThe reworked house is studiously compact, and yet it delivers on a big suburban brief – multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and living spaces. Its small footprint and single storey expression preserve the sense of small house within an established garden, consistent with the other houses in the area and enhancing the streetscape. Save this picture!© Katherine LuThe rear is treated with as much care, attention and whimsy as the original decorative brickwork front facade, reflecting the inversion of suburban values from ‘best face forward to street’ to focus on the leisure of the back garden and entertaining areas.Save this picture!ElevationsForm making is subtle – a ridge extended to create a gable, housing two new bedrooms a bathroom and a rumpus. Dormer windows sit back from the key elevations, facing side boundaries. Save this picture!© Katherine LuMateriality is preserved – a celebration of decorative brickwork, lichen-covered roof tiles . We honored the heritage fabric of this house by using a level of quality and detailing in the new back garden elevation. The brick sunburst on the front appears in the new rear elevation, lead light windows to the front morph into steel framed windows at the rear. It is a kind of material palette call and response between the public and private faces of the building. Solid brass and marble hardware used throughout the house is from Tribe Studio’s collaboration, BITPART, designed and made in Australia. www.bitpart.com.au. Save this picture!© Katherine LuIn terms of sustainability, the key move here was clever planning, flexibility of use, and a light touch. The footprint of the house has been reduced, and new accommodation is shoe-horned into a roof extension. Small room sizes respect the original order of the house, while adding multiple uses, and it now has photovoltaic cells, water collection tanks, hydronic heating system, high thermal mass, and well functioning cross ventilation.Save this picture!© Katherine LuProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Closest Church / Heesoo Kwak and IDMM ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSee How Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Tree of Life” Stained Glass Windows are AssembledArchitecture News Share Photographs: Katherine Lu Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects House Au Yeung / Tribe Studio ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHouse Au Yeung / Tribe Studio Architects 2016 CopyAbout this officeTribe Studio ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRosevilleAustraliaPublished on March 21, 2017Cite: “House Au Yeung / Tribe Studio Architects” 21 Mar 2017.

Thecurrent lack of transparency in many areas in the sector is making it harder to reverse this long term decline in giving. Greater transparency will lead, we believe, to increased support for charities from donors and enhanced confidence in us”, said Ainger.Many charities were also failing to take advantage of the tax incentives currently provided by government. Mr Ainger said: “It is a scandal that only about a third of voluntary giving is tax effective. We must all seek to ensure that the government’s tax concessions are fully used.” Stephen Ainger also emphasised that the voluntary sector should build on itssuccesses.“Receipts in payroll giving, for instance, have grown by 118% since 1999. The government’s 10% supplement has clearly had a positive effect on this figure and the number of employers offering schemes has doubled from 5,000 to 10,000 over the last five years. Any plan to end the supplement at thisstage would be short-sighted.”Mr Ainger noted that public sector funding of voluntary organisations had now reached 40%, with some parts of the charity sector receiving well over 50% of all their funds from central and local government.“Charities need to examine how this growth in government funding might affect the behaviour of donors. Once again, transparency is central as it will be important that donors fully understand why some charities are publicly funded through contracts to this extent. Also, we need ensure thatthe initiatives and programmes of charities, which receive substantial government funding, are not dominated by a government agenda.” Despite a recent upturn, giving to charity has fallen by 25% as a percentage of the gross domestic product (GDP) over the last decade, according to Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).Speaking at the CAF annual conference today,Stephen Ainger, Chief Executive, highlighted the funding challenges facing the voluntary sector.Total individual giving declined year on year in the 1990’s and only startedto rise with the growth in more professional fundraising, and the introduction of new tax incentives in 2000. However, giving is still not increasing in line with the growth in the economy.

Tagged with: Individual giving Research / statistics A survey for international children’s development charity, Plan UK, suggests that fewer than half (43%) of people who donate to charity disaster appeals are told about the difference their money has made. The survey, carried out by research company ComRes on Plan’s behalf, found other elements of donor communications that needed addressing by international charities.The research was commissioned in order to understand the public’s perception of the media’s reporting of humanitarian disasters. In terms of donor communications, it found that only 20% who contributed to disaster appeals received some sort of communication regarding their donation. Only 5 per cent of these were personalised; and remarkably just 9% of respondents were thanked.“Rightly, many people want to take some kind of action when they see a disaster unfold,” said Plan UK’s Director of Fundraising, Jeremy Cooper. “However, if we don’t thank and inform them properly, we miss the opportunity to build support and understanding for the fact that aidworks.”The research confirmed that awareness of disasters is mostly high amongst the British public, with only 4% of people not recalling seeing coverage of events in countries like Haiti and Pakistan in the last year.More than half of those surveyed (51%) said that they were likely to donate to specific appeals from charities following natural disasters; 56% said they have already taken action after watching reports on events like floods, famine and earthquakes, with 36% donating money. More women said that they gave to disaster appeals: the survey reports that 43% of women had contributed cash to disaster charities, compared to 29% of men.Former UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief, and Plan UK patron, Sir John Holmes, commented on the survey’s findings, saying: “Aid agencies need to learn how to communicate more effectively and journalists need to understand better the dynamics of a disaster and what is possible and necessary in aid terms.”ComRes interviewed 2051 adults online between 14 and 16 January 2011. Data was weighted to be representative demographically of all adults in Great Britain.www.plan-uk.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
