I’d buy these shares to get rich Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 5th November, 2020 | More on: CINE From some perspectives, the Cineworld (LSE: CINE) share price might look cheap. The stock is trading at one of its lowest levels ever recorded. What’s more, if profits return to 2019 levels, shares in the cinema group look like a bargain. However, I’m not convinced that the business will ever be able to recover to 2019 levels of activity. As such, I think one would be better off concentrating on other companies, with brighter outlooks. Today I’m going to explain why. 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…Cineworld share price: Downward pressure To see it through the coronavirus pandemic, Cineworld has borrowed heavily from investors. This has helped the business keep the lights on, but it will weigh on the company’s recovery on the other side.For example, in September, the group raised $250m from private investors. This came with a hefty interest rate of 11%. That suggests an annual interest payment of $27.5m, which is 15% of 2019’s profit, according to my figures. These numbers suggest to me that the group’s profit will not return to 2019 levels anytime soon.But while it could be years before this business recovers from the coronavirus pandemic, other companies are charging ahead. I find these fast-growing businesses much more attractive than the Cineworld share price. Fast growth businessesCineworld’s problems stem from the fact that the group’s theatres have been forced to shut in the pandemic. Magazine publisher Future has had no such issue. Magazine subscriptions can be delivered to consume at home. Meanwhile, the company has been investing heavily in its websites to provide content to anyone anywhere in the world at any time.These two factors have had a hugely positive impact on the company’s growth during the past few years. Net income has surged from £1.6m in 2017 to £8.1m for 2019. It is projected to rise further. Analysts have pencilled in a net profit of £68m for 2020 rising to £81m for 2021.And with profits going from strength to strength, Future’s balance sheet is growing stronger every day. In its last trading update, the company boasted a net cash balance of £37m. Compared to the Cineworld share price, I’d much rather own this stock with these attractive qualities in my portfolio. I’m also keeping one eye on Keywords Studios. Like Future, this video games publisher is expected to report a large increase in profits in 2020. Profits are expected to rise threefold between 2019 and 2020. Cash generation is also strong. Keywords’ balance sheet is stuffed with nearly €70m of net cash.Personally, I have a preference for companies that have lots of cash on the balance sheet because a business can never have too much cash. Moreover, as holders of the Cineworld share price have unfortunately found out, a lack of cash can make it difficult to navigate crises. That’s why I’d buy growth stocks Keyword and Future over the cinema operator today. As these companies build on their past success, I think they have the potential to generate large total returns for investors.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaveslast_img read more

The Thurston Wine House Addition carefully displays a respect for its context through its materiality and its tectonic language while expressing its unconventional program through its formal elements. Embedded into the topography of the site, the project takes advantage of its section by using the slope to decrease the visual impact of structure, allowing access to the northeast valley and McDowell Mountain views beyond. The Wine House also benefits from the thermal storage capacity of the earth itself, greatly reducing the demand of the mechanical systems throughout the year.Save this picture!© Ed TaubeRecommended ProductsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedThe entertaining capability of the existing house flows seamlessly to the wine house’s roof terrace, offering the perfect setting to enjoy a glass of a favorite wine together with one’s friends. The descending stair adjacent to the roof terrace, leading one to the wine itself, is an experience reserved for much smaller, more intimate parties. Once beyond the small garden gate, the stair accommodates only one. As you descend, the terracotta bricks ascend skyward, quickly reducing the light reaching the surface of the steps as if light itself were not on the guest list.Save this picture!© Ed TaubeA massive wooden door greets you as you arrive at the bottom of the stair, protecting the treasure inside, and yielding only a small candle lit vestibule beyond. Once beyond the vestibule, the terracotta decanter recedes allowing the wine to take center stage. Displaying the eclectic tapestry of colorful wine labels as a veneer covering the vertical surfaces, one can appreciate the personality of every bottle.Save this picture!© Ed TaubeThe initial impression is a vast wine cellar with an almost endless variety of wine. Upon further examination, the skylight, acting as the table on the roof terrace above, reveals the room’s true intimacy. The table beneath the merlot hue provides only room for two. The design provides a variety of very distinct and disparate singular and collective experiences, all of which enrich the program, and ultimately enhance the passion. The Thurston Wine House Addition received a Merit Award at the 2009 Arizona Masonry Guild – Excellence in Masonry.Save this picture!© Ed TaubeProject gallerySee allShow lessTianjin Eco-City / Surbana Urban Planning GroupArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share Save this picture!© Ed Taube+ 14 Sharelast_img read more
