Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Christopher Ruane | Thursday, 10th December, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. This year has provided no shortage of movement on the stock market. Many well-informed investors have picked UK shares that have doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled in value.I expect a lot of action on the stock markets in 2021 too. That means now is a good time to start thinking about one’s investment strategy for next year. I am eyeing a few shares that already doubled in value at some point this year – but which I think could double again in 2021! That may sound too good to be true, but in each case I think a solid business strategy underpins the investment thesis.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 big bank is on a tearShares in banking group Barclays (BARC) fell as low as 73p this year. If I had bought them at that price, I would have had the opportunity to sell them this week and double my money. They now sit just below 150p. That is an excellent return.But I would buy these UK shares even now. I think Barclays could double my money again in 2021. The well-respected banking brand has a solid UK business, and its investment banking arm gives it a potential revenue stream unique among UK banks its size. That helps explain why Barclays has been profitable every quarter this year, even in the pandemic.Banks have not paid dividends since the pandemic, so profits are piling up at Barclays, which should be good for a strong future payout. Barclays has made pre-tax profit of £2.4bn so far this year. With such strong performance, I think its shares could double again in 2021.Two turnaround stories in UK sharesA fall in demand has pummelled transport shares this year. Combined rail and bus operator Go-Ahead Group fell below 400p at one point. They now trade above 900p so have more than doubled.But I think there is still time to get in on the recovery story. These UK shares are less than half their price in January even after the recent increase. But the company has an attractive set of franchises. Go-Ahead has been a large dividend payer before. It generates 90% of its revenues from sources that aren’t affected by falls in passenger demand, such as fixed price contracts.Last week, the company said it was working towards paying a dividend again in 2021. I expect that to be positive for the shares, even if the dividend is lower than it used to be. I am considering buying Go-Ahead shares.A third share I think could double again in 2021 is SIG. This building materials supplier had management and pricing issues even before the pandemic hit, so it tumbled from 120p in January as low as 15p. It is double that now, but has not shared in the recent market rally. With significant structural challenges in the marketplace and a dilutive rights issue in the summer, I think shareholders are waiting for solid evidence of recovery.There is clear evidence of renewed demand for building materials from other UK shares. I expect that will also benefit SIG. The company faces a tough climb back to former glory, but with its new management, I think the shares could double again in 2021.center_img See all posts by Christopher Ruane Enter Your Email Address 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.

Rugby World Cup Daily – Christchurch revisted

first_imgSunday Sep 18, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – Christchurch revisted It was an early start for rugby fans in Wales today as their team took on somewhat of a RWC bogey side in Hamilton today. Here is the Rugby World Cup Daily show with a summary of all three of today’s matches, as well as a look at the All Blacks on their visit to Christchurch.  The first game of today saw Wales up against Samoa in what was a vital game to the outcome of Pool D. Samoa actually looked the better side at times, but it was some great defense, a late Shane Williams try, that proved the difference as Wales came away 17-10 winners. “I thought we showed some great character. A few years ago, or 12 months earlier, we might not have won that game,” said Wales coach Warren Gatland.England had a fairly challenging ride against Georgia early on, but late in the game they scored a few tries that made the scoreline fairly flattering in the end. The Georgian power up front was impressive, and they were within reach for a while, despite some missed kicks at goal. England gave away 14 penalties.“Some guys were a little bit rusty. We made things a bit more difficult than they were. It wasn’t good enough and if we are happy with those standards we’ll go home early,” said Martin Johnson.They did win 41-10 though against a powerful emerging nation, so its not all doom and gloom. In the final match of the day France and Canada entertained in Napier in a game that tested the French, who ultimately ran away with the game, winning 46-19. Canada were within touching distance for a long time though, as they kept hitting back at the French. A hat-trick of tries for Vincent Clerc took it out of reach however as France picked up the bonus point win.You can view highlights of the games at rugbyworldcup.com. We’ll try get a few other random clips up during the week though, so make sure you keep an eye on RD’s twitter and facebook.

Aphiwe Dyantyi explains why he opted to not go for easy hat-trick chance

first_imgMonday Aug 20, 2018 Aphiwe Dyantyi explains why he opted to not go for easy hat-trick chance The Springboks got their 2018 Rugby Championship campaign off to a positive start, picking up a six tries to three bonus point win over Argentina in Durban on Saturday. The wingers scored two tries apiece, but one could easily have had a hat-trick. Despite the solid 34-21 win, coach Rassie Erasmus was not altogether thrilled.“The only positive was the first 30 minutes in the second half; it was the only decent rugby we played,” the former Springbok flanker said.“I was expecting that we wouldn’t produce a completely fluent display, but the first half was worse than I thought. Thankfully Siya (Kolisi) and the boys picked it up after the break.”Star winger Aphiwe Dyantyi picked up two tries, but could easily have had a third, if it were not for gifting right winger Makozole Mapimpi a try in the 52nd minute.“I felt he was in a better position to score, so I gave him the ball to score,” he said.“For me the most important thing is us getting the result. It doesn’t help if I score 50 tries and we lose all of those games. If I can score two tries in 20 games and we win all of those games, that’s more important for me than becoming the top try scorer.”WATCH: AUSTRALIA VS NEW ZEALAND HIGHLIGHTSDyantyi picked up Man of the Match, and when asked whether it was a dream season for him, he humbly stated that when they beat New Zealand, that will then be a dream season. Flyhalf Handre Pollard missed a number of kicks at goal, but it was the dominant forwards that laid the platform for the tries, impressing Argentina coach Mario Ledesma, who called them “the most physical team in the world by far”.“They kept playing direct physical footie and it’s like a dam; if you keep hammering, hammering eventually the wall will break,” he said. And when asked if it was possible to stop the Springbok pack, he said: “Maybe if they get sick or something.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Springboks Related Articles 84 WEEKS AGO Pieter Steph du Toit named World Rugby Player… 87 WEEKS AGO Josh Larsen sees red for no-arms ruck charge… 94 WEEKS AGO Throwback Thursday: Relive the Battle of… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Fluidity of Spaces: The living room was conceived as an “outdoor space” with abundant light and natural ventilation. It opens onto decks and gardens on either side, in keeping with the concept. A continuous wall serves as a textured backdrop to the living room and continues onto the deck, lending it a rustic feel. The cantilevered wood and steel staircase connecting the two floors is set against imposing double height windows; it is bathed in light, allowing luxuriant indoor plants to thrive. The indoor courtyard pathway continues from the staircase area towards the garden. Showers of light are suspended from the ceiling creating a serene ambience.Save this picture!© Alan AbrahamThe open floor plan makes the Living – Dining – Swimming Pool and Deck areas feel like an expansive lounge.The Dining Room suspends over the private pool, giving the room an island-like feel; the tree in the dining area adds an element of surprise. The Dining island becomes an exotic “outdoor” space where one can enjoy the breeze, the proximity to the water and to the greenery.Save this picture!© Alan AbrahamThree bedrooms are situated on the first floor. The master bedroom is separated from the other two bedrooms via a bridge that spans across the double height space of the living room. The Master Bedroom is a complete suite by itself, made up of a large bedroom looking onto a private terrace, a master bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. Wooden rafters span the entire Master Suite ceiling, giving it an earthy, out-of-town feel. The bedroom’s wooden flooring brings in beauty and warmth. A walk-on skylight is a unique feature between the bedroom and the terrace overlooking the garden.Save this picture!© Alan AbrahamOne with nature:The villa is designed in response to site conditions. Sloping roofs have been designed to withstand the extreme monsoons rains experienced in the area. This house allows one to experience nature. The indoor/outdoor boundaries disappear as every room opens up to a private outdoor space (terrace or garden). Outdoor decks and landscaped gardens serve as expansive entertaining areas with artful illumination and mood lighting. Indoor courtyards, skylights, double height sliding-folding windows add to the outdoor feel. Light and shadow add warmth & texture. The carefully chosen, limited palette of materials ensures consistency in design, minimises maintenance and encourages sustainability.Save this picture!© Alan AbrahamSustainability:Spaces created harmonise with their surroundings and encourage sustainability by using “green” materials that accentuate warmth & transparency, whilst ageing beautifully: natural sandstone & engineered wooden flooring, large sliding and openable double–glazed windows, which cut down on solar radiation and air conditioning load, allowing for uninterrupted views and access to landscaped areas; automation & LED lights reduce electrical consumption. Cross ventilation ensures minimum use of the AC.Save this picture!© Alan AbrahamThe Villa showcases Five Bedrooms (optional Media Room) with attached Bathrooms and balconies. In addition there is a Staff Room, a Kitchen and a Powder Room.Save this picture!© Alan AbrahamLandscape and lighting design play an essential role in the project: outdoor areas and even indoor courtyards, namely the staircase and dining courtyards abound with greenery. Earth was mounded up, boulders & exotic plants were added to create an interesting entrance.
