Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! As 2020 draws to a close, I’m using this time to assess the stocks I believe have potential to deliver price gains in 2021. As part of this review, I’m considering investment trusts to diversify my portfolio and reduce risk.Investment trusts are funds that have been set up as companies and are listed on the stock market. UK investors have access to over 300 of these stocks and they offer exposure to a range of asset classes.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…Given the diverse range of such vehicles, here’s a look at two of my favourite investment trusts for 2021.#1 – Scottish Mortgage Investment TrustI can’t talk about investment trusts without mentioning Scottish Mortgage (LSE:SMT). This stock has had a phenomenal 2020 and its long-term performance record is stellar.Launched in 1909, Scottish Mortgage is investment house Baillie Gifford’s flagship investment trust. It’s run by fund managers James Anderson and Tom Slater who invest in global public and private companies.There’s a bias towards the US and stocks include the likes of Tesla and Amazon, which SMT recently took some profits on. Scottish Mortgage is a concentrated portfolio but I think the investment experts running it are a prudent pair and have made some great calls.The share price is at an all-time high but I think the fund managers’ expertise warrants this premium. Since Scottish Mortgage buys global growth stocks, there’s not much of a dividend yield, but I wouldn’t worry about this. The fantastic share price gains are adequate enough for me.Scottish Mortgage has historically traded in line with its Net Asset Value (NAV) and is on a small premium. I expect it to keep rising in 2021 and hence it’s one of my favourite investment trusts.#2 – JP Morgan China Growth & IncomeGenerating fantastic investment returns shouldn’t be limited to just a few markets. I believe that geographical diversification is key, especially when 2020 saw UK companies slash or even axe their dividends. While the coronavirus pandemic may have originated from China, this economy has recovered and delivered some great returnsFor these reasons, I like JP Morgan China & Income (LSE: JCGI). This investment trust is a concentrated portfolio that invests in Greater China companies. It’s run by three fund managers who have a wealth of investment experience.The top 10 holdings account for approximately 45% of the portfolio, with the largest holding, Alibaba, at a 9% weighting. I’m not overly concerned about such concentrated portfolios as I’m paying for the the fund managers’ skill.JCGI aims to provide best of both worlds, namely growth and income. The fund managers are focusing on the growth of ‘New China’. This includes companies and sectors that are capitalising on the transition of the country to an even more consumer-driven economy.For the income-hungry investor like me, JCGI has an attractive dividend yield of approximately 3.5%. With this investment trust, not only do I get geographical diversification but also income, which has been difficult to get lately due to the coronavirus crisis.JCGI has historically traded on a discount to its NAV and is currently on a small premium. Although the shares are at an all-time high, I believe now is an attractive entry point and expect the investment trust to rise further in 2021.center_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Auto Trader’s share price soars to record highs after FY results

Royston Wild | Thursday, 10th June, 2021 | More on: AUTO Auto Trader’s share price soars to record highs after FY results 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.

Enter Your Email Address Risk appetite on UK share markets remains quite subdued as we approach end-of-week trading. But not all British stocks are struggling for grip today. The Auto Trader Group (LSE: AUTO) share price, for instance, is soaring following the release of latest financials.Prices of the online car sales platform were recently up 7% on the day at 619p. This makes it the best-performing stock on the FTSE 100 today. Auto Trader had struck record highs of 624p earlier in the session before settling lower again.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…Sales slump at Auto TraderAuto Trader’s surged following the release of full-year financials. Revenues at the e-commerce firm dropped 29% in the 12 months to March, to £262.8m. This reflected the firm’s decision to run free advertising for its retailer customers in April, May and December during the height of coronavirus lockdowns, and to offer discounted rates in June.As a consequence, pre-tax profits at the firm plunged 37% year-on-year to £157.4m.But the FTSE 100 firm is hopeful that its troubles are in the rear-view mirror. And so it’s decided to reinstate dividends and to pay a 5p per share reward for last year.“There has been a dramatic shift towards buying online which means we now have more buyers than ever turning to Auto Trader to help with their next car purchase, making us even more relevant to retailers and manufacturers,” chief executive Nathan Coe said. Cross platform visits rose 15% from financial 2020 to 58.3m per month.Coe added that Covid-19 is having“little” on trading in the current year to date. Though he cautioned that the pandemic could re-emerge as a “significant negative factor” later on.Potholes on the horizon?Commenting on last year’s performance Neil Shah, director of research at Edison Group, says Auto Trader’s decision to reduce, or cancel altogether, advertising costs to support the motor industry could bode well going ahead. He said that “the rise in online sales and the more positive outlook for automotive retail sales more generally” means the Footsie firm could be on course “for a much better set of results” in this financial year.That said, the road ahead for Auto Trader isn’t completely without obstacles. Shah added that “while we’re seeing a strong used car market with higher residual values being reported by automotive dealers, it remains to be seen as to whether there will be further impacts on the business from Covid-19.”Researchers at Hargreaves Lansdown have also struck an upbeat tone looking ahead. They say that Auto Trader’s dominant market position, “comfortable liquidity position and very flexible cost base means it has the tools to ride out the (hopefully) last few miles of the crisis.”But analysts there also warned that “we can’t rule out ups and downs though [as] we don’t know the full extent of medium-term forecourt closures yet.” See all posts by Royston Wild Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’!center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Rev. William Love speaks on Oct. 24, 2020, at the Albany diocesan convention, announcing his plans to retire as part of an agreement to resolve a Title IV disciplinary action. Photo: Diocese of Albany, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. William Love, the former bishop of the Diocese of Albany who resigned last month, announced on March 30 that he is leaving The Episcopal Church to join the Anglican Church in North America, effective April 2. Last October, Love agreed to resign while facing disciplinary action over his ban on same-sex marriage in his diocese.In an announcement the same day, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said he had approved a request from Love to be released and removed from the ordained ministry of The Episcopal Church, with the advice and consent of Curry’s Council of Advice.The work of ministry “is not easy,” Curry wrote on March 30. “The road can be rough. This path is not painless. The work of love is hard, but it is both the hard work of healing and the harbinger of hope.“Deep in my heart I believe that as a church we are called, as Jesus once said, to be ‘a house of prayer for all people,’ where, as my slave ancestors used to sing, ‘there is plenty good room for all of God’s children,’” the presiding bishop added.Love speaks against a same-sex marriage resolution at General Convention on July 11, 2018. Photo: Episcopal Church videoLove, who disagreed with The Episcopal Church’s stance on LGBTQ issues, resigned as bishop effective Feb. 1 after a disciplinary panel ruled on Oct. 2, 2020, that he violated church law by prohibiting clergy from using the same-sex marriage rite approved for churchwide use by General Convention in 2018.In an email to the upstate New York diocese, Love said his removal from ministry within The Episcopal Church will be effective April 2. After that, Love said, it is his “hope and plan to be received into the Anglican Church [in] North America (ACNA) in the very near future.” ACNA, which is not a province of the Anglican Communion, was created in 2009 by former members of The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada who primarily disagreed with the churches’ positions on the ordination of LGBTQ people and women.“As a cradle Episcopalian (with nearly 30 years of ordained ministry as a deacon, priest and bishop), that was not an easy decision, but given all that has transpired these past couple of years and the constraints placed upon me as a theologically conservative and orthodox bishop within [The Episcopal Church], I believe it is the right decision. I know not all of you will agree with this decision and some may be angered or hurt by it, and for that I am very sorry,” he said in the email.Love said he celebrated his final service in the diocese on Feb. 27 and thanked the clergy and members of the diocese for their prayers and support. He added that he plans to stay in the area but does not consider it appropriate to serve in an ACNA parish within the geographic boundaries of the Diocese of Albany and will elaborate on his role in ACNA soon.Since Feb. 1, the diocese has had no active bishops. Under church canon law, the diocese’s standing committee assumes ecclesiastical authority when there is no bishop. The standing committee will oversee the election of the next bishop, although the diocese has not announced when that might happen.On March 15, the Rt. Rev. Daniel Herzog, Love’s predecessor, also announced that he is relinquishing his Episcopal ministry, over unspecified disagreements with the church, effective next week.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

This renovation and addition project transforms a typical suburban colonial house into a dwelling that is open, naturally day lit, and engaged with the landscape, garden, and sky. Located on a steep forested corner lot, reforming the landscape was a critical component of the project to anchor the project into the hill side and to create a new terraced garden. Save this picture!© mark herboth photography LLCThe existing garage was demolished and the vernacular form was extended to the garden to create a new two story transparent entrance and living area with expansive views to the garden and sky.Save this picture!© mark herboth photography LLCSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© mark herboth photography LLCRe-envision. The goal was to transform a closed-in inward-looking colonial box and repurpose the structure into an open transparent volume for living with nature. Faced with an economic choice to build new on a lot far away from downtown or renovate an aging colonial home closer to town, the owners decided to re-envision a typical colonial box and transform it into a sustainable modern house with views to the outside.  The owners’ love of gardening and natural light was an inspiration for the project and generated the opportunity to create a transparent structure and completely redesign the garden and landscape.Save this picture!© mark herboth photography LLCSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© mark herboth photography LLCSubtract-Extend-Reconnect. The existing house had previously been both compartmentalized and separated from the garden by a one car garage.  This garage was “subtracted” or demolished to create opportunities for greater transparency and reconnect the house with the garden.   The subtraction allowed for new views from the kitchen and expansive views to the north and south.   A new steel stair and bridge is extended from the existing second floor hallway which connects to a new master bedroom. Save this picture!© mark herboth photography LLCThe new master bedroom is a volume “extended” into the garden and away from the existing colonial box separated from the old by a new glass storefront wall and bris soleil.  A new fiber cement “wrapper” completely wraps the new and the old.  The addition is supported on an exposed douglas fir heavy timber wood structure.   Two volumes, an existing play room addition and a new storage/work room,  that were outside or under this fiber cement wrap were clad in local atlantic white cedar.Save this picture!© mark herboth photography LLCReforming the landscape.
