Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img See all posts by Cliff D’Arcy The last three weeks have been very positive for UK investors, with shares rising pretty much across the board. Since October, the FTSE 100 has surged in response to various pieces of good news. On Monday, the Footsie was around 770 points (13.8%) ahead in November, its best month for many a year (and heading for a monthly record). Some beaten-down cheap shares in the FTSE 100 have surged dramatically in November. Indeed, there are 23 FTSE 100 shares up by 20% or more over the past 30 days.Of course, a rising tide doesn’t necessarily lift all stocks. Some cheap shares in quality companies have been left behind in this surge. At the other end of the FTSE 100 are 22 laggards whose share prices have actually fallen over the past month. Here’s my favourite among these FTSE 100 stragglers.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…These cheap shares have missed the recent rallyIf you haven’t heard of Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB.), then I expect you’re familiar with many of its consumer brands. Reckitt Benckiser (RB) is a powerhouse in FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods). These are the staples that we buy to line the shelves of our bathrooms and kitchens. RB’s most popular UK brands in hygiene, health and nutrition include Cillit Bang laundry detergent, Clearasil skin cream, Dettol and Lysol disinfectants, Durex condoms, Finish dishwasher tablets, Gaviscon for heartburn, Harpic toilet cleaner, and painkiller Nurofen. All are market-leading products in their own right, with millions of us buying them for our homes. Yet RB’s cheap shares have been overlooked in the recent market mini-boom.At Monday’s close, RB’s stock stood at 6,550p a share. This values this successful Anglo-Dutch corporation at £47.7bn, making it a FTSE 100 heavyweight. However, RB’s share price has been far higher this year, hitting a 52-week closing high of 7,960p on 29 July. Since reaching this peak, RB’s cheap shares have declined by 1,410p (17.7%). To me, this seems crazy, because the underlying business has been going great guns in 2020. After all, RB does make leading household cleansers and detergents, sales of which have soared due to Covid-19.Reckitt Benckiser is crushing Covid-19Furthermore, RB’s cheap shares have slipped 450p (6.4%) since 23 October, underperforming the wider FTSE 100 by a wide margin. I find this surprising, given its latest results. In the third quarter, RB reported record sales growth of 6.9% and forecast a double-digit improvement in revenue growth for 2020. All this extra hand-washing and sanitising boosted RB’s quarterly sales to £3.5bn. However, sales of contraceptive devices, personal-care products, medicines, and formula milk did lag behind the wider group.RB is having a record year, but analysts worry that sales of cleaning products will slip post-coronavirus. I’m not so sure, as I see Covid-19 precautions lasting at least into 2022. With a price-to-earnings ratio of around 20 and an earnings yield of roughly 5%, these are not cheap shares in the conventional sense. Then again, a dividend yield of 2.7% a year that is set to grow should interest income investors.In summary, quality doesn’t come cheap — and Reckitt Benckiser stands out to me as a great British success story. Therefore, I would happily buy it today, ideally inside an ISA, to enjoy years of solid, tax-free dividends and future capital gains.

Our project was done in a former warehouse of a marmalade factory, which operated before World War II in Szczecin (Poland). The project involved reconstruction of one of the open spaces for an apartment divided into 4 rooms (living room with a kitchenette, bedroom, office, bathroom). In the most part of the loft we preserved historic, wooden floors that have been restored. All the kitchen furniture were designed and built by Loft Szczecin. Countertops were made of white marble and kitchen furniture of plywood. The rest of the furnishing is vintage furniture and lamps from the 50s and 60s from Denmark, the Czech Republic, Poland and the Netherlands. The furniture have been renovated by Loft Szczecin.

PivotWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsText description provided by the architects. Ecocasa Atelier is a social residential design-build project in Brazil. It serves as proof that it is possible to build sustainable contemporary houses at an accessible price thanks to the most precious tool in architecture – design. The clients, whose main income is from art, music and event management, consented that the process be driven by environmental, material and human constraints. The available resources were used to their maximum potential with the least ecological impact.Save this picture!© Marcos BaconThe scope was ambitious and at the same time very limited by the low budget. On a 1.800 m² plot of land in São Roque (1h from São Paulo’s city center), the optimal program was: a two-bedroom house functioning both as – housing and a party venue that would guarantee the family’s livelihood. Due to strong collaboration of all stakeholders involved, it was possible to build a 285 m² ecohouse.Save this picture!© Marcos BaconFunction defined form, that defined materials: the walls of the house are built partly with earth and partly with cement, placed in between precast reinforced concrete slabs. There are three main volumes: a rammed earth living room, two CEB bedrooms and a wet area (kitchen, bathrooms, laundry and storage) made from exposed structural concrete blocks. The dimensions of the spaces were determined by use, and the implementation by bioclimatic impositions. The intermediate residual space became the central courtyard of the house covered by a 3×7 m glass skylight allowing the indiscriminate entry of the entourage inside.Save this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe hilly terrain forms a natural lookout facing the sunset. Therefore, the west façade was enhanced with an 85 m² external area that followed the same logic as the main house, concrete blocks define the outdoor cooking area designed with remaining precast elements from the slabs, and where the land drop is sharp, a 6m-high balcony was built structured by locally sourced and treated Mossô and Hatiku bamboo. The 40 m² flooring was built from repurposed wood.Save this picture!© Filipe BisofThe resilience of Ecocasa Atelier is multifaceted, it can be seen as the ecohouse fulfills its scope whilst seasonal rental serves as the primary source of income for its residents until hosting events is allowed again. It is also demonstrated through the ecological construction site that had a temporary bamboo structure to store materials and the implantation of a composting toilet for the workers. Another example is the complete water cycle inside the property (semi-artesian well, bio sewage treatment and infiltration basin). And in addition to using earth from site to build the rammed earth walls, all wood is refurbished. Plus, during the construction phase, a training course was hosted to the general public on building with bamboo.Save this picture!© Marcos BaconBy integrating conventional construction techniques with natural building ones, it was possible, in just one year, to transform an empty plot with a small forest reserve into a dream ecohome.Save this picture!© Marcos Bacon Save this picture!© Marcos Bacon+ 25Curated by María Francisca González Share Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project last_img read more
