5 top investment tips from the Fundsmith annual letter

first_img Enter Your Email Address Edward Sheldon, CFA | Thursday, 30th January, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. It goes to show that a simple strategy can generate fantastic results.Highly profitable companies tend to do well The next takeaway is that a focus on highly profitable companies can generate strong returns over the long run. Take a look at the table below. You’ll see that Fundsmith companies generally have a much higher return on capital employed (ROCE) than the market average.Source: FundsmithSmith believes that in the long run, portfolio returns tend to be similar to the investment returns (the ROCE) generated by the companies themselves.Value investing has flawsSmith believes value investing has major flaws. He says that many cheap stocks are cheap for a reason – ”they are not good businesses.”He also points out that if the value investor does get it right, they then need to sell the stock, incur a transaction fee, find another undervalued stock, and start all over again. In other words, value investing is not a buy-and-hold strategy.To sum up his views on value investing, he quotes Warren Buffett: “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price, than a fair company at a wonderful price.”Don’t be concerned about star managersThe topic of avoiding ‘star’ portfolio managers also comes up in the letter.Here, Smith believes investors are focusing on the wrong issue and says that “it makes no more sense to avoid funds run by star fund managers any more than it does to avoid supporting sporting teams because they have star players.”In his view, the problem is not star managers, but instead, when star managers change their strategy. As an analogy, he points out that if Cristiano Ronaldo played as goalkeeper, Juventus would probably not perform as well.Be careful of hidden costsFinally, Smith points out that it’s important to be aware of hidden costs when investing in funds. He believes that too many investors focus on the Annual Management Charge (AMC) or the Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) of funds, which don’t include transaction costs.The table below shows the total costs for the 15 largest equity and total return funds in the UK:Source: FundsmithAs you can see, transaction costs can increase total fees substantially.However, Smith says investors shouldn’t “obsess” over fees to the extent that they lose focus on performance. I think this is a great point. These days, it seems everyone is turning to index investments because they’re cheaper. Fundsmith is more expensive than your average market-tracking index fund, but its long-term returns have been far higher.

The clients for this project approached us around Easter in 2011. They are a young family from the city who had purchased this terrific sloping allotment just five minutes’ walk from Blairgowrie’s back beach along Bass Strait. The land form was dominated by an awkward contour and it was clear that the site was halfway up a dune. The block to the west was the top of the dune and the vacant block to the east was the bottom. There was native vegetation, but it was sporadic and insignificant. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe were briefed to provide a family home that would give plenty of outdoor space and play area for the kids and their friends, but most importantly the brief insisted that the feel of the house be quite divorced from reminders of life in the city. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe studied the land form and we studied the planning requirements. We then prepared a building envelope, placing the dwelling as far to the rear (south) of the lot as possible, providing a terrific expanse of open space to the north. By the time we pushed the form back, it was significantly elevated. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellAs the founding materials are sand, we undertook a major rethink of the land form and the site’s contours by excavating under the dwelling area to create a large undercroft and lower ground floor rumpus area and used that fill to create a north facing quadrangle at the upper level. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe result is an apparent single storey, low slung dwelling on arrival. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellA further challenge contemplated the public aspect. The road is located north of the site, therefore a driveway for car parking and arrivals needed to consider how we might plan to make this open space private. We employed a permeable but physical barrier dissecting the public and private aspects of the dwelling. The form of the barrier, a series of free standing steel sheets with 100mm gaps exists as a sculptural element in the landscape, evoking images of the found object. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellAccess to the dwelling is external, via a garden path defined by a further device, a line of pillars constructed from rammed earth also emerging as objects in the landscape, seemingly moulded by the conditions over time. This element clearly defines the public and private realms, yet provides crossovers and transitional spaces in the form of a sandpit, an outdoor shower area and landscape planting zones. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe dwelling itself is conceived over four main modules. Two main living zones separated by a services zone which is located directly over the rumpus room below. The fourth module is the semi roofed external living area, linking the dwelling interior with the landscape. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe clients embraced a robust approach to the design of the dwelling. The plan form is rectilinear, with hallways wide enough for kids to ride their bikes. A second linking bbq deck completes the circuit. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe materials are generally recycled timbers, with blackened plywood walls, a black ceiling which encourages the enjoyment of light and the externally framed views of the landscape. The bathrooms are glossy heat treated mild steel which reflect the colour of the mosaic tiled floors and the shafts of light from the skylights. At night, the sheets imbue a warmth in reflection of incandescent light. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellOne of the owners grew up in Eltham, a rural bushland retreat east of the city in a house designed by Alistair Knox. The imagery portrayed by the client of a childhood memory growing up in a Knox dwelling had a significant impact on the project. We considered the use of breeze block and concrete block to provide reminders and links back to notions of the surf clubhouse. Through development of the design, these elements became more refined with the use of rammed earth and the implementation of laser cut screens employing one of the common motifs of the breeze block.

Nat’l convergence in St. Louis, Ferguson: People resist police terror

first_imgSt. Louis, Mo. — An unprecedented weekend of mass resistance took place in St. Louis, Ferguson, Clayton and other parts of Missouri on Oct. 10-13. Many actions demanded an end to police terror and for real justice for Michael Brown, John Crawford III, Vonderrit Myers Jr. and countless others who have lost their young lives at the hands of the police.Initiated by local activists united under the theme of Ferguson October, the extremely organized, creative, disciplined and inspiring actions — some planned, some spontaneous — reminded Missouri, the U.S. and the world that the police murder of 18-year-old African-American Michael Brown on Aug. 9 will continue to be a major catalyst for building a national movement against police abuse and occupation.The four days of resistance included marches, rallies, civil disobedience, forums, picket lines, assemblies and cultural events that erupted throughout St. Louis County.  One of the first protests took place Oct. 10 in Clayton at the office of Robert McCullough, the county district attorney. McCullough comes from a cop family and is currently conducting the grand jury investigation to determine whether police officer Darren Wilson will be indicted for Brown’s murder.  Brown’s family and their supporters have been demanding that McCullough recuse himself from this investigation — due to his well-documented bias against Black people — and be replaced by an independent special prosecutor.One of the culminating activities that occurred on Oct. 13 was the dramatic unfurling of a banner in the stands during the pro-football game between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. The banner read: “Rams fans know that Black lives matter on and off the field.”“Black lives matter,” “No justice, no peace,” “Stop killing our people” and “Arrest Darren Wilson” were major demands for many of the protests. The largest mass action took place on Oct. 11 when 3,000 people took to the streets of St. Louis in a Justice for All march.  Delegations representing labor, youth and students, community groups and the political movement all came together with a common sentiment: Enough is enough, as the racist war against youth of color worsens.  The march ended in a park in front of the famous St. Louis Gateway Arch, which ironically is the exact site where at one time kidnapped Africans were sold during slave auctions.Speakers, many of them young and African American, stated that they have spent more time in jail for protesting than Darren Wilson has for killing Brown. Links were made between police brutality and the need for union jobs and decent education for young people.Solidarity between the Palestinian people in Israeli-occupied territories and Black communities being occupied by police was echoed by several speakers. It was publicly acknowledged that #FergusonOctober was the most retweeted site in the world that day, numbering over 91,000 tweets.The families representing Brown and Myers thanked the marchers for their support.John Crawford was fatally shot at a Walmart store outside Dayton, Ohio, on Aug. 6. A student activist from Ohio stated to cheers that in response to the grand jury not indicting the cop who fatally shot Crawford, the Beavercreek Police Station was recently shut down by activists.  On Oct. 13, three Walmart stores were shut down in St. Louis and Ferguson by activists chanting, “I am John Crawford/We are John Crawford.”  The action, mobilized by the Organization for Black Struggle, resulted in arrests inside and outside the stores.Ferguson march led by Brown familyJust hours after the march in St. Louis, an estimated 1,000 people gathered in Ferguson for a brief vigil at a memorial set up at the exact place where Michael Brown had been gunned down in the Canfield Gardens apartment complex.  Brown’s mother, Leslie McSpadden, and other family members helped lead a militant march down West Florissant Avenue, a flashpoint for the Aug. 10 uprising, to the Ferguson Police Department located on South Florissant Road.As we were marching in the streets, a multitude of drivers honked, their fists outside their car windows, to express solidarity. Residents came out of their houses to give the “Hands up, don’t shoot” salute, which has become a clarion call for this struggle.The protesters were met by armed police blocking the entrance to their fortress. But no amount of force could intimidate the marchers from getting right in the faces of the majority-white police force, chanting “Arrest Darren Wilson!” and “Hands up, don’t shoot!”  We then sat in the street for several minutes in an act of civil disobedience.Following the march, hundreds of the same protesters went back to St. Louis to express their outrage at the killing of 18-year-old Vonderrit Myers Jr. by an off-duty police officer on Oct. 8.  Myers was shot at 17 times and was hit at least six times.  Countering the account by the police that Myers had a gun, eyewitnesses say he had just bought a turkey sandwich. The protest ended at the Quik Trip gas station in The Grove section. When an estimated 50 protesters held a sit-in there, they were attacked with pepper spray and other forms of violence by the police.  At least 10 people were arrested.Moral Monday Oct. 13:  ‘No business as usual’Progressive clergy and faith-based people started day-long actions of civil disobedience on Oct. 13 in the tradition of Moral Monday protests that took place in North Carolina. There, hundreds were arrested over the past year challenging the ultra-right-wing, racist, anti-worker policies of the state government.In addition to the shutdown of the three Walmart stores, 400 people marched from a local church to the Ferguson Police Department, where 10 people, mainly clergy, were arrested. Individuals took turns lying down on a symbolic chalked outline of Brown’s body. The police allowed his body to remain in the street for at least four hours after the murder on Aug. 9.Participants from Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment and Ferguson October protested outside a fundraiser for Steve Stenger, the County Executive candidate known for close ties to supporters of Darren Wilson and DA McCulloch.Despite a downpour, a coalition of labor and community members were arrested after blocking the street in front of Emerson Electric. This Fortune 500 company, based in St. Louis, had revenues of $24.6 billion in 2013, while the average per capita income in Ferguson last year was $21,000.“We are calling attention to the economic injustice we live with in Ferguson,” said Jermaine Arms of Show Me $15. “Justice for Mike Brown means justice for all of us. This should be a moment where we all take responsibility for the conditions that his death exposed. Businesses and corporations based in Ferguson and St. Louis should promote fair employment and contribute to the well-being of our community.”Millennial Activists United, a youth group, occupied two floors of Plaza Frontenac, an upscale shopping center in downtown St. Louis, where they engaged in a call-and-response choir demanding justice for Michael Brown.Brittany Ferrell, a spokesperson for MAU, stated: “Young people are being killed by police in the streets of Ferguson. We came here today because we cannot continue with business as usual in the face of such injustice. Whether it’s the elected officials of our cities, the local police or places like Plaza Frontenac — we will continue to sound the alarm and demand justice for the family of Mike Brown. This needs to stop.”Youth Activists United protested at St. Louis City Hall to demand that Mayor Francis Slay, the Board of Aldermen and Police Chief Sam Dotson make sweeping police reforms. Protesters were arrested attempting to unfurl banners from a balcony.Youth Activists United are demanding: Body cameras must be worn by ALL police officers who have any interaction with the public; a civilian review board be chosen by the citizens, not by mayoral/police-approved appointees; removal of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department from the 1033 Program, a federal law that allows for the militarization of local police; and independent investigations of all police shootings resulting in fatalities, starting with Vonderrit Myers.All quotes can be found at, where summaries and video clips of many of the activities are also located.  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

New Rose Bowl Institute to Highlight Leadership, Sportsmanship, Equality

first_img Charlie Firestone is President of the Rose Bowl Institute, which champions sportsmanship and promotes the power of sports to unite people everywhere.The Rose Bowl announced Wednesday that it is forming a think tank populated by key figures in the sports world to promote leadership, sportsmanship and unity from the world-renowned stadium.The Rose Bowl Institute seeks to draw on the 98 years of rich sports history at the venue to champion the values and life lessons that sports can teach, organizers said. It’s a partnership between the stadium and the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation.“Using the iconic Stadium as a classroom, with a wide digital footprint and ‘sister cities’ around the nation, the Institute will engage civic and business leaders, athletes, sportscasters, journalists, children and noteworthy panelists to highlight sports values and their impact on the broader society. The Institute will initially concentrate on sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship initiatives,” the RBi said in a written statement.The first planned event of the RBi is a three-part dialogue on “Race and Sports,” set to begin Aug. 13, according to the RBi. A live-streamed “Women’s Empowerment Symposium” is slate for Sept. 16-18.A series of roundtable discussions called “Rose Table Dialogues” will be held continuously to bring together community and industry leaders, officials said.“These moderated dialogues will define critical issues relating to sports values and recommend creative yet practical solutions,” according to the RBi’s website.“Future plans call for a Center on Sports and Innovation, the Rose Bowl Sportsmanship Initiative (ROSI) that will recognize, encourage and award outstanding acts of sportsmanship, and an annual conference where respected leaders will come together to help spark change in sports and in society,” according to the statement.Longtime Aspen Institute think tank executive Charlie Firestone has been selected to serve as the Rose Bowl Institute’s inaugural president.“This is the right organization, created at the right time, to address critical issues of sports values relevant to our democracy,” he said. “Sportsmanship incorporates appreciation for the game, respect for the opponent, fair play and teamwork. All of those pertain to the vital role that citizens play in our society today. We are non-partisan but not value-neutral. We will work for integrity, inclusion, equity, and fairness in sports and beyond.”The Institute has begun forming its Advisory Board, “comprised of national leading sports, media, civic and business leaders,” according to the RBi statement. “They include Vince Young, Ronnie Lott, Ann Meyers Drysdale, Julie Foudy, JC Watts, Dick Vermeil, Jessica Mendoza, Billie Jean King and others.”“They exemplify the kind of integrity that we are looking for in sports figures,’ Firestone said. “They have an impact. They can convey integrity, fairness, inclusion, commitment and perseverance.”While the Rose Bowl is perhaps best known for football and soccer, the advisors also include representatives from a wide array of sports, from Olympic bobsledder Lauren Gibbs to chess grandmaster Maurice Ashley.“One of the things we’re doing is moving from football and soccer to all sports,” Firestone said.“I’m excited about the topic and what the possibilities are for this institute,” Firestone said.The values taught by sports provide “an opportunity to improve ourselves and our communities,” he said. Competitive athletics reinforce “sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship.And the values of sports translate directly into societal values, Firestone said.“One of the things that got me so excited about doing this: After 30 years at the Aspen Institute, I saw a need for depolarization of our society, a return to civic values,” he said.“Sports is a real meritocracy,” he added. “You don’t care who else is in your fan base, you want fellow fans, you cheer right next to them,” he said.“Nelson Mandela saw this, saying that sports has the power to unite people like nothing else.He said sports can create hope where there was only once despair,” Firestone said“We want to be the place to go when people think about sportsmanship,” he said. “We’re going to invite people to submit sportsmanship stories from all over the country.”Firestone said he espouses four key elements of “sportsman as citizenship,” which include appreciation of the game, fair play, respect for the opponent and teamwork.The values have direct analogies in a democratic government, such as understanding the democratic process, playing by the rules, respecting those who disagree and collaboration.“I see us eventually bringing athletes into school to talk about sportsmanship as citizenship,” he said.“We’re in favor of competition. We’re in favor of winning. But we want to move people from a win-at-all-costs mentality to a sportsmanship mentality,” Firestone said.The RBi will also seed out additional opportunities for the stadium to be used.The meeting area where the Rose Table Dialogues will be held, inside of the stadium’s 1922 historic locker room, may also be used as an executive retreat, Firestone said. “It’s going to be a whole new use for the Rose Bowl.”Sports have had a major impact on Firestone’s own life, he said.As a 97-pound 9th-grader, Firestone said he was cut from his high school football team. He then joined the wrestling team, competing in the 103-pounds weight class.“I probably set the Missouri state record for the most times being pinned,” he said. “I was terrible.”But his coach brought him back as a returning letterman, encouraging him to continue training and offering workout tips.Bit by bit, Firestone said he got stronger. By his junior year of high school, he placed 4th in the state. He went on to captain his college wrestling team.“That gave me great confidence in my life. “…literally pulling myself up a rope to get strong and learning the moves better.”Rose Bowl CEO and General Manager Darryl Dunn said the formation of the RBi represented an exciting opportunity to share not just the memories and moments at the stadium, but also the lessons and values that they teach.“The Rose Bowl is not only a venue known for legendary sports moments, but also as a shrine to amazing sports values,” he said. “The Rose Bowl Institute will reflect and celebrate the essence of the Rose Bowl as we look forward to celebrating our centennial in 2022 and instilling strong sports values in American youth to develop more engaged citizens. We are excited to partner in this amazing venture.”More information is available on the RBi’s website at 52 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News More Cool Stuff Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe People New Rose Bowl Institute to Highlight Leadership, Sportsmanship, Equality By BRIAN DAY Published on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 | 1:00 pm Make a commentcenter_img Business News STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

It might take some time to revert back to the golden days of shopping in the city, but let us be optimistic”.There is also a planning application before Limerick City Council for a new restaurant at No 8 Roches Street. The premises is owned by Michael Murphy, Eves, who now plans to divide it into two units.last_img read more
