Gold beat the FTSE 100 in 2019! Here’s which I’d choose now Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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. It’s true: gold outperformed the FTSE 100 in 2019. Fellow Fool Peter Stephens notes that during the year, gold returned 18%, while the FTSE 100 returned 16%.Does this mean that gold could be a better investment going forward?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…Gold is often seen as a safer investment than stocks and shares. It does not have a distinct correlation to other assets, such as real estate property, bonds, or shares. As such, it might have a place in an investor’s well-diversified portfolio.However, with many of the UK’s top companies appearing to trade at a good valuation, I think investing in the FTSE 100 is the better option. Here are three reasons why.DiversificationBy investing in an FTSE 100 index tracker fund, investors have a degree of diversification built in. By buying a portion of the UK’s top 100 listed companies, investors have a stake in banking giants, oil companies, leisure businesses, and consumables among other industries.In addition to diversification across industries, the FTSE 100 has a geographical spread too. Much of the revenue attributable to the index is made in dollars. This was clear after the Brexit referendum result when the pound lost value against the dollar, and the index rose by 10% just three months later.Pound cost averagingBy regularly paying amounts into an index fund, investors can take advantage of pound cost averaging. A regular sum added to the fund will mean that investors are buying at low points as well as high, averaging out in the long term.Compound interestInvestors of index funds can also benefit from compound interest: when interest earned on an investment compounds on itself. Interest on interest, from one year to the next.This is what fascinated Warren Buffett, who realised the power that compound interest could have on his investments early on in his career. This is especially true if dividends are reinvested into the fund.Low feesHolding an index fund is easier than ever. Through a Stocks and Shares ISA, investors could pay fees lower than 0.1%, with a platform fee on top.Investing through a Stocks and Shares ISA is also tax-efficient and uncomplicated. In the event of an emergency, it is good to know that the investment can be easily sold off, whereas with gold the process might be more cumbersome.The futureGold has had a great run of late, but that could be because of the defensive nature of the investment. Geopolitical issues – such as Brexit, the US-China trade war, and tensions between the US and Iran – have weighed heavily on equities. I believe that in the long run, if confidence is restored in the market, those buying into FTSE 100 funds could be in with a good chance of making a nice profit.

Photographs: Laurent BrandajsText description provided by the architects. The client wanted to build a house for four people. The willingness to use eco friendly insulation materials quickly led us to choose a wooden structure. Beyond any environmental considerations, a light construction was necessary because of a very humid soil. The wooden framework thus proved appropriate on both grounds.

PivotOn the outside, the Trespa panels give the façade a unique appearance. The idea was to create a black box and mark the façade as well as remaining in a timber-framed logic, hence using light materials. Both a construction area reduced to an 11 meters square and the south orientation of the front façade led us to choose the construction of a cube scooped up in some places to create terraces. Inside, everything is built around a large central space which serves all other rooms. The importance of this central room is emphasized by a greater ceiling height.

The ground floor is ground-heated. There is no heating in the bedrooms, insulation and ventilation retaining and redistributing the heat in each room.

SHARE By Gary Truitt – Oct 23, 2017 Facebook Twitter Crest Hill has become the latest Illinois community to limit where pet stores may obtain the animals they sell. The city council in the southwest Chicago suburb voted unanimously to ban stores from offering pets obtained from large commercial breeders. Last month, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the city of Chicago’s right to enact a similar ban in 2015.Supporters of these laws say they are justified because dogs that come from “puppy mills” are “abused” and raised in “unhealthy conditions.” This is the same argument used against livestock farms. Animals raised on “factory farms” are “abused” and live in “unhealthy conditions.” Puppies today, pigs tomorrow.For several years, Indiana animal breeders and animal care experts at Purdue have been working to craft a set of standards for dog breeding operations. Yet, this science will not survive the onslaught of emotionality that surrounds the issue of dogs. In 1952, Patti Page asked the question, “How much is that doggie in the window?” In 2009, Ms. Page answered the question when she said, “The answer is ‘too much.’ And I don’t just mean the price tag on the puppies in pet stores. The real cost is in the suffering of the mother dogs back at the puppy mill. That’s where most pet store puppies come from. And that kind of cruelty is too high a price to pay.” How long will it be before people feel the same way about the meat they eat? That is what the animal activists are counting on! By Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Commentary Commentary: The Doggie in the Window Isn’t For Sale Anymore In 1952, Patti Page recorded a novelty song, “How Much is the Doggie in the Window.” It reached No. 1 on both the Billboard and Cash Box charts in 1953 and sold over two million copies. The song was wildly popular across a wide demographic audience, and dog sales rose 8% nationally as a result of the song. Future generations will wonder what this song is all about since radical animal activists and over sentimentalized consumers are in the process of putting pet shops out of business.Puppies are extremely cute; and, if you are a dog lover like me, dogs in general are just pretty darn cool. Yet, today, dogs are quickly becoming both emotionally and legally on par with human children. It is common to hear them referred to as fur babies and dog owners as pet parents. This societal shift is having some very serious consequences. People’s irrational response to how dogs are bred, fed, and sold is setting dangerous legal precedents. In a free, capitalistic economy, governments are, with the support of voters, passing laws that make the sale of dogs illegal simply based on where they were born.California’s Assembly Bill 485 has passed, making California the first state to ban the sale of commercially-bred pets in pet stores statewide. Under this new law, it is illegal for pet stores to sell pets bought from a commercial breeder. Instead, the animals available at California pet stores will have to be rescue/shelter pets that are in need of a home. If you think this is just another nutty law from California, think again.
