It released its full-year results ending December 2019 just yesterday.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…British American Tobacco (LSE:BATS) is the second-largest cigarette maker in the world. Home of brands such as Benson & Hedges, Dunhill, Lucky Strike, Pall Mall, and Rothmans, the London-headquartered manufacturer is a major player in its industry.Smoking rates are declining across the world and governments are making business more challenging for the tobacco industry with increasing regulation. In response, players such as British American and rival Imperial Brands are diversifying. British American possesses market-leading positions in approximately 50 countries, as well as operations in approximately 180 countries. It is also trying to conquer the new vaping market, which has been slightly affected by a health scare in the US.Recent results and strategyBritish American revealed yesterday that its revenue rose nearly 6% to £25.8bn last year. Profit rose almost 8% to £11.1m. Strong cash flow also saw debt reduced by 4%. This is always a positive sign in my eyes. A company’s debt can be off-putting to an investor, but the ability to build a strong cash flow and pay off debt shows good performance and decision-making. There has always been scrutiny towards British American’s debt levels in the past, however these recent results should keep detractors at bay. The firm also announced that a growth strategy is reaping rewards as revenue from “new categories” such as vaping and e-cigarettes increased over 35% compared to last year. Further to this, management maintains confidence in this strategy to continue growing, with an ambitious forecast of £5bn in revenues from before the end of the decade. Over the last few years British American has continued to perform valiantly, enjoying consistent success, which is why I have no doubt it could be a good long-term growth pick.Share prices over the last 12 months have seen an increase of almost 15%. Its dividend per share has been increasing every year over the past five years. Its price-to-earnings ratio, which currently stands at just under 10, could be interpreted as a business currently being undervalued. On the other hand, this current level does represent a certain amount of safety.What I would do nowOn the back of results and general performance over the previous few years, I think British American Tobacco presents opportunity to pick up shares cheaply, compared to previous trading prices. The potential it is showing for me is unrivalled in its industry. Some of the key factors as I have discussed are the strong cash generation, growth strategy, and emerging new products, as well as ability to pay off debt.I believe this stock could be an income champion and a worthy addition to a portfolio.   Image source: Getty Images. center_img 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.

Here’s where I’ll shelter if this epic bubble becomes a stock market crash!

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. Cliff D’Arcy | Wednesday, 20th January, 2021 In 2021, I’m increasingly certain that US stocks — particularly those of US tech companies — are in the later stages of a gargantuan bubble. And because all bubbles burst, I think the coming stock market crash is inevitable.Stock market crash: when reality bitesSince 2009, US investors have enjoyed the longest bull market in history. The S&P 500 has climbed in nine of 12 years, with yearly gains ranging from 9.5% in 2016 to 29.6% in 2013. The three losing years were very modest: 2011 (-0.0%), 2015 (-0.7%) and 2018 (-6.2%). Since the end of 2008, the S&P 500 has more than quintupled, rising 416% before dividends. To me, this points to a bubble primed for a full-blown stock market crash. Yet I feel that so many investors have lost touch with reality, especially Tesla fans. 2020 saw the steepest US economic downturn on record. In the second quarter, output collapsed by almost a third (32.9%), even worse than during the Great Depression. Yet the S&P 500 surged by almost a sixth (16.3%) in 2020. Uh oh.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…An ‘epic bubble’Two factors have blown the biggest bubble in history. First, ultra-low interest rates make future cash flows more valuable today. Second, low inflation pushes up real returns. But for a stock market crash to be avoided, these ideal conditions have to continue in perpetuity. That simply isn’t going to happen.Other market veterans also think this way. Jeremy Grantham of GMO published this in early 2021: Waiting for the Last Dance. Grantham warned that we are in “an epic bubble”. He sees, “extreme overvaluation, explosive price increases, frenzied issuance, and hysterically speculative investor behaviour.” Grantham believes that the next stock market crash will be “right along with the South Sea bubble, 1929, and 2000.”I wasn’t around in 1720 and 1929, but I clearly recall the stock market crashes of 1987, 2000-03 and 2007-09. I also witnessed Japan’s late-1980s bubble and last year’s March meltdown. For me, the 1990s and noughties bubbles had this in common: fanatical extremism. Investors fervently believed in a ‘new paradigm’ and that ‘this time is different’. They had to, since this belief was the only thing justifying ridiculously high prices. When financial gravity finally prevailed, prices duly collapsed and bubble fortunes were spectacularly lost.I’m de-risking my portfolioToday, I see the same crazy cultism and fanatical behaviour as in other great bubbles. Alas, human psychology — especially fear and greed — never changes. That’s why I expect this bubble to keep inflating in 2021 before a full-on stock market crash by mid-2022 at the very latest. Right now, I’m terrified, because I can smell smoke. And rather than wait for the whole house to burn down, I’m plan to watch from a safe distance.To be clear, I’m not selling up and going 100% into cash (although my family portfolio was 50% in cash before the 2020 March meltdown). Instead, I’m going to radically reduce our exposure to frothy US stocks, where we’ve enjoyed bumper gains since 2016. With the proceeds, I will buy more reasonably priced assets, including FTSE 100 value shares. Also, I’m going to cushion the crash’s impact by buying plenty of high-yielding UK dividend shares. The high income from these boring, safe holdings will help to offset declines elsewhere. Furthermore, with emerging-market stocks looking historically cheap, some capital will go into this sector. Right now, I’m all about reducing risk, volatility and portfolio pain — and being boring before the next crash inescapably arrives in 2021/22!

The building is located in the elite and very quiet part of Belgrade (Dedinje), known as the most beautiful and greenest part of town with both recently built and pre-war villas. Smetanina Street is a residential and commercial building that contains 14 flats, one small apartment and an office. All apartments and the office space on the ground floor have access to a large garden space.More photographs following the break. Save this picture!Courtesy of Aleksandar SavikinSmetanina Street is surrounded by a garden and consists of three distinct spaces. In the central volume there is an entrance hall with a reception and all vertical communications. On the ground floor of this volume there is an architecture studio occupying 134 sqm and a small apartment of 46 sqm. There ara two identical apartments on the first and second floor occupying 265 sqm each. The other two spaces are identical and connected with the central volume, each having six apartments of 150 sqm. The car parking area is in the basement, as well as storage area and a fitness room. There is a direct access to a large, shared, garden. Save this picture!Courtesy of Aleksandar SavikinThe building is designed so as to connect the interior with outer space and this is why all openings on the apartments stretch from floor to ceiling. In most living rooms there are sliding windows and when they are wide open they allow a connection with the greenery. Public communications (stairways and corridors) have glass walls that provide a beautiful view of the inner courtyard. Save this picture!Courtesy of Aleksandar SavikinAll the windows without terraces are equipped with aluminum shutters (wood pattern) and the terraces are linked in places vertically with screens of the same material. They bring the rhythm, dynamics and plasticity of the façade and provide for the privacy, “warmness” and “softness” of the building. This is why the building is well-fitted with the surrounding despite its large size. Special attention is paid to horticultural landscaping, new plants and trees have been planted as well as carpetgrass, the artificial irrigation system has been installed and low vegetation placed in the jardineres. Lighting balls in different sizes have been “scattered” all over the free areas of the yard and are automatically lit up by sensors as soon as the night falls.Save this picture!Courtesy of Aleksandar SavikinProject gallerySee allShow lessLandscape Loop / JAJA ArchitectsArticlesVideo: Zamet Centre / 3LHDArticlesProject locationAddress:Belgrade, SerbiaLocation to be used only as a reference.
