Economists had forecast a broadly steady reading of £8.6bn.December was Britain’s coldest in at least one hundred years and heavy snow and ice closed many airports, though the ONS said they may have recovered some business later in the month.Even excluding volatile trade in oil and goods such as aircraft, Britain’s goods trade deficit rose to £8.175bn from £7.382bn, also its highest since monthly records began in 1980.The total trade deficit, which includes services, deteriorated to its worst level since August 2005, increasing to £4.831bn from £3.947bn.

The 50p top rate of tax to hit UK growth and cut tax receipts, claims think tank

first_img Tags: NULL whatsapp The 50p top rate of tax to hit UK growth and cut tax receipts, claims think tank THE 50p top rate of income tax will hammer British growth and actually reduce government tax receipts, a Westminster think tank will say today.“Evidence from overseas shows that high top tax rates fail to produce public revenues and injure economies,” the Adam Smith Institute (ASI) argues.Labour mobility among high earners, relocation by businesses, lost economic activity and higher use of tax shelters were calculated to drag on growth and revenues due to more punitive taxes, according to the report.“The introduction of the 50p tax rate, along with the 40 per cent higher tax rate band and high capital gains tax levels, has stifled our competitiveness and economic growth,” its report states.And chancellor George Osborne should scrap the “revenue-losing” £30,000 non-domicile charge, the ASI is expected to demand, ahead of the budget this month.Yesterday the tax system was attacked as “the longest and most complex in the world,” by the ICAEW group of accountants. “It not only makes it harder for UK businesses to operate but undermines confidence in the UK as a place to invest,” said ICAEW’s Ian Strange.However, the coalition government received a ringing endorsement of its “Plan A” for fiscal consolidation today, from City economist Dr Tim Morgan. “The UK’s past fiscal profligacy is unaffordable and unsustainable,” said Morgan, author of a report released today by the Centre for Policy Studies.“The UK cannot borrow its way out of a debt problem,” Morgan added. “And the planned spending cuts are not ‘massive’ — the reality is that they merely unwind a small part of the earlier profligacy,” he said.

2 US stocks with surging share prices. Should I buy GameStop or Palantir Tech?

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.

Image source: Getty Images 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. 2 US stocks with surging share prices. Should I buy GameStop or Palantir Tech?  Kirsteen Mackay | Tuesday, 26th January, 2021 | More on: GME PLTR Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The reason for the price surge appears to have been in response to a recent contract win, plus sheer speculation. Last week it announced a multi-year, multi-million-dollar contract with Pacific Gas and Electric Company. It will provide the utility company with enhanced technology through the use of its Foundry software.The excitement may also be in anticipation of Palantir’s Demo Day happening today. This will include public demonstrations of its software platforms, Foundry and Gotham. By showcasing its technology, the public will get a clearer picture of how its customers use the software.Although Palantir is a long-established company with an impressive network of contacts, I think it’s overvalued at its current share price. It’s caught up in the pandemic wave that’s been buoying US tech stocks, I feel. Despite being around since 2003, it was loss-making prior to going public last year. Since then, it’s begun turning things around, which is helping boost its popularity. But time will tell if it can keep up the momentum. I think I’ve missed the boat to invest at a reasonable price point for now. Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares US tech stocks continue to soar ever higher, and both GameStop (NYSE:GME) and Palantir Technologies (NYSE:PLTR) have experienced an unprecedented surge. With less excitement around UK stocks, I’m drawn to US shares. But are these worth a long-term place in my portfolio as I seek diversification and growth?US video game stockGameStop hot last week. The video game company’s share price surged 70% on Friday and ended the day up 51%. This was the result of increased momentum in an incredibly bullish run that has seen the GameStop share price rise 1,000%+ in just four months. On Monday the stock also opened 47% up on its previous closing price and surged another 50%, only to dramatically fall. It was a rollercoaster day and one that has left analysts dumbfounded.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 Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The retailer has been struggling in response to the pandemic, but has proved a favourite for retail investors. It’s also been a popular stock among short sellers betting against it though. The culmination of the two seemed to be the catalyst for last week’s incredible rise. As more and more buyers pile in to the stock, it forces the price upwards. This means the short sellers are losing money. They then must buy the stock to offset their losses, causing the price to surge even higher in what’s known as a short squeeze. Prior to the short squeeze, interest in the stock was rising because sales of next-generation gaming consoles were improving. There was also the prospect of actions by activist investors looking to persuade management to improve its financial future. Nevertheless, GameStop is not a money-spinning US stock with lots of free cash flow and profitability. It’s cash-flow-negative and endured a 30% decline in revenues in Q3. Considering the pandemic has annihilated its business, it doesn’t have much going for it as a viable investment for me. With so much speculation/controversy it may continue to rise short term, but at this price, I don’t see a long-term value investment. I won’t be buying. Data on displayPalantir Technologies (NYSE:PLTR) is another US tech stock that enjoyed a price surge on Friday and Monday. Owned by Paypal founder Peter Thiel, it’s a data analytics company that counts the US government and CIA among its clients.last_img read more

This is a house designed for a painter and his wife. The site is located on the eastern edge of a village, next to rice fields. In common with the inward-looking character of courtyard houses in the village, the new house has an introvert character. Lime mixed with pieces of straw—a very common form of rendering for external walls in Dali region—also helps relate the new house to its context. Save this picture!© Hao ChenInside, the house is divided into the private quarters of the resident couple to the north, and a series of living areas and accommodation for a guest and a live-in cleaner/cook to the south. Nine courtyards of varying sizes reduce the scale of the traditional courtyard house and to match courtyards with various rooms.  The circulation through the main parts of the house develops as an alternation between spatial compression and spatial dilation. The entry sequence in the southwest involves two 180-degree turns that bring the visitor to the southern courtyard. A long corridor offers quick access to the private quarters, with a glimpse of the central shallow pond halfway. Save this picture!Floor PlanFrom the southern courtyard one can walk undercover past an enclosed dining area towards the pond.  A storage room obscures the size of the main living area, with views out to the eastern fields as well as to the central pond and, above the plants and rocks of the western passage, to the traditional tiled roof of the neighboring courtyard house to the west. The private quarters are organized around four courtyards of different sizes and orientation. This variety continues the attempt to introduce daylight from the east and the west in the rooms, so that the atmosphere of various spaces will be appreciably different at different times of the day.Save this picture!© Hao ChenSave this picture!ModelSave this picture!© Hao ChenStructural elements of the house are kept out of view by setting the thickness of walls to 200 mm so that columns and in-fill walls are indistinguishable once they are rendered.  The maximum span of 8m on one side of the southern courtyard required a beam that is 600 mm deep.  However, this and other beams of various dimensions are kept unobtrusive by placing them above rather than below roof slabs.  By subordinating structural expression, light and spatial effects, and the client’s collection of furniture are allowed to draw one’s attention. Save this picture!© Shu TanProject gallerySee allShow lessNational Institute for Biotechnology / Chyutin ArchitectsSelected ProjectsClay Roof House / DRTAN LM ArchitectSelected Projects Share “COPY” 2016 ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783906/zhuan-residence-yang-zhao-peigen-shang Clipboard CopyAbout this officeZhaoyang ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDaliartistHouseRegional ArchitectureChinaPublished on March 24, 2016Cite: “Zhu’an Residence / Zhaoyang Architects” 23 Mar 2016.

According to Trulia, economic inequality is still a subject that the U.S. is handling. They study homeownership inequality by the gap between the bottom third share of homeowners versus the top third, omitting retirees.In Americas 100 largest metros, households with higher-income own homes at as much as 4.4 times the rate of those at the bottom. Though the historical trend has shown the market as off limits to low-income homebuyers, now that isn’t true for every metro. The average age of a cities population, the magnitude of a housing market’s price range, income inequality, and how long people stay in their homes play a role in homeownership inequity.According to Trulia’s report, 77 percent of wealthy households own their homes, which is nearly 2.3 times the rate of poor households (34.9 percent). The gap in homeownership has been trending downward since 2012, nevertheless, from 2.4 times to 2.3. Based on the largest 100 metros, 79.3 percent of wealthy households now own homes—2.8 times higher than low-income households, which currently lie at 27.9 percent.There isn’t one reason in particular that homeownership continues to be unequal. It’s possible it is a mixture of range of household income, range of home prices, age of the population, and the proportion of the population that have lived in their home for less than five year. However, according to Trulia, none of these are strong predictors.“While demographic factors in some metros, such as a younger than average population, may be fueling unequal housing outcomes, along with a national trend that has been pointing to a gradually widening gap, there still seems to be plenty of opportunity for changes to local housing policy that could move the needle in a favorable way for low income groups.”To read the full report, including regional data, click here.
