At the time of writing, the stock is trading at a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 1.1.In my opinion, this valuation doesn’t take into account the group’s brand value and international diversification. By comparison, the rest of the travel and tourism sector is trading at a median P/B ratio of 2.1. 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…That said, it’s clear the group is facing some significant headwinds. It will need to overcome these before investor sentiment towards the operation improves. Rough yearThe past 12 months have been, without a doubt, one of the most turbulent periods in Carnival’s history. The group reported a net loss of just over $10bn last year as revenues virtually evaporated after the first quarter.Pandemic travel restrictions around the world forced the company to cancel essentially all of its cruise operations from the end of March 2020 onwards, and revenues sank.In the six months from the end of May to the end of November 2020, the group reported revenues of just $64m, compared to $11bn in the prior-year period, a declined of 99.4%.As revenues plunged, the company had to issue new stock and raise debt to keep the lights on. As a result, Carnival’s balance sheet is significantly weaker today than it was at the end of 2019. The good news is, the outlook for the Carnival share price is starting to improve. OK, many of the company’s US cruises remain cancelled until the end of the summer and some cancellations even go beyond that date. However, the group’s P&O Cruises brand in the UK has registered “unprecedented demand” for domestic cruises scheduled to take place over the summer. This should bring some much-needed revenue to the organisation.Carnival share price outlook The biggest challenge the company now faces is riding out the rest of the pandemic. If it has to cancel cruises again, its pain may last into 2022. And the longer it lasts, the harder it’s going to be for the Carnival to recover in the long term. That said, based on the demand for the company’s recently-launched UK domestic cruises, it seems to me the corporation won’t have a problem filling its boats when it’s allowed to resume sailing around the world. On that basis, I think the Carnival share price looks cheap at current levels. But, in the near term, the group could face further uncertainty and more challenges as it tries to navigate through the pandemic. As such, I’d own the stock as part of a diversified portfolio of recovery plays. If the company has to push back the restart date of its US cruises once again, I think the stock will continue to trade at a discount valuation for the foreseeable future.Therefore, I believe this is a long-term investment, as it’s unlikely the company will be back to full health for at least two years. And it could take much longer. last_img read more

Mush / Studio 0.10 Architects

A single-family residence designed for a couple and set in a postwar subdivision, a few blocks away from the ‘hip’ strip of Sawtelle Blvd. in Los Angeles. Considered a last bastion of the “traditional values” of home ownership, the neighborhood’s properties of mostly single level cottage typology have been predominately occupied by their original owners since their creation. Save this picture!However, with the aging of many of the original owners and with still reasonable real estate pricing, a new generation of home seekers is buying in. Armed with favorable zoning regulations, many of the recent buyers have sought new opportunities for an architectural reconsideration of their property. Though still early in the neighborhood’s transformation, there is an emergence of a new aesthetic and potentially new synergy for a design enclave in the patchwork urbanism that is Los Angeles. Save this picture!The neighborhood is largely composed of 50 feet by 150 feet infill and corner R2 zoned lots with a height limitation of 35 feet capable of legally accommodating three-story duplex developments. The uniqueness of the project site is that a second-generation family owned nursery with a low redevelopment potential borders it on two sides and offers extended outwardly views from within the lot once above the ground floor. The green visual field of unobstructed views of the neighborhood and the bordering urban fabric presented by the nursery also impose a surreal urban and visual presence back onto the lot. Save this picture!The owners’ lifestyle revolves around the creating, exhibiting and sale of art and photography. As such, the project took on a complex and aggressive set of programs aimed at integrating domestic, entertainment and work activities. In addition, there were two unique requirements: one, the project needed to include an autonomous but fully integrated apartment for the wife’s elderly mother; two, after a decade of loft living devoid of access to exterior living spaces, the owners requested that the project be planned to maximize usable outdoor spaces for entertaining. Specific to the work programs, there was the need for an art studio for the husband, home offices and a dedicated exhibition space as an extension of the wife’s gallery business. These programmatic parameters informed two primary strategies to organize the project. First, due to the restrictive lot dimension, consideration had to be given to break up the massing as a whole into parts to generate more outdoor space(s). This was done by shifting and stacking the program blocks to maximize the buildable height in order to minimize the footprint of the buildings to produce the required outdoor spaces. This strategy yielded the traditional front and back yard in addition to a large courtyard as a focal outdoor space. Second, in order to maximize display surfaces, the exhibition space was stretched as a three-dimensional trajectory of movement throughout the entire volume of the main house. This was accomplished by conceptualizing the exhibition and art viewing activities as a ribbon of display surfaces also doubling as the main circulation of the house. Save this picture!The resultant project consists of two independent structures sandwiching a courtyard space. The street front garage/studio unit is two stories with a 4-car garage (doubling as an art production space), an integrated apartment on the ground floor with an art studio on the 2nd floor. The R2 zoning designation was beneficial in allowing the apartment to operate autonomously from the rest of the programs on the property and as such it has its own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The main house, situated in the back of the property, is a three-story structure containing the living, dining and kitchen programs on the ground floor, home office and a guest room on the second and the master suite on the third floor. Save this picture!Once the site planning and massing agenda were established, consideration was given to mapping current and potential future contextual impacts onto the project as cues for formal manipulations and articulations. As such, the key strategy was to manipulate the circulation / exhibition ribbon element and use it strategically to articulate the massing of the project. The result is the wrapping of the circulation / exhibition ribbon on the periphery of the main house volume and using it as a privacy buffering “armature.” The final design accentuates the movement of the users transitioning between programs while also projecting the exhibition activities and artwork onto the exterior. Save this picture!The two structures are clothed in a custom-patterned zinc rain screen to personify the monolithic quality of the volumes while the imprints of the circulation/exhibition ribbon are identified through the use of structural glazing framed with Ipe wood. The Zinc cladding is conceptualized and detailed as a skin – a simple wrapper. Its combination of differing size panels and a special depressed unit interacts delicately with the sunlight – offering smooth and pattern shadowed variations of the skin as the day passes. To protect the artwork, high performance glass was used to virtually eliminate the penetration of harmful UV light.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessKohler LivingHome, a prefabricated and sustainable house by Kieran TimberlakeArticles303 East 33rd Street, a green project by Perkins Eastman + Studio V ArchitectureArticles Share ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudio 0.10 ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWest Los AngelesHousesUnited StatesPublished on March 22, 2009Cite: “Mush / Studio 0.10 Architects” 22 Mar 2009.

Third of tenants happy to rent property without physical viewing

first_imgThe extraordinary impact of Covid on the lettings market has been revealed after a third of tenants told a survey that they would make an offer on a property following only a virtual viewing.A quarter of tenants also told the Goodlord poll that they are considering a home move, including 27% who want to move because of Covid and 24% who need to move to a new area of the country.But while this will be good for quicker viewings, agent turnover and lettings volume, the report also reveals a widening gap between have and have-nots within the private rental market.A quarter told the poll they were worried about meeting their rental payment in the coming months, while a further quarter said they wanted to move home as they sought more space to accommodate their new home working lifestyle.Missed paymentBut more worrying for letting agents is that 12.5% of those polled said they had either missed a rental payment due to Covid or had agreed alternative payment terms.And just over a quarter of said their pay wasn’t secure or that they were worried about being paid in the future – with only 40% confident of their future income.But somewhat predictably, those aged between 18-34 reported the most financial strain.“Both financial strain for renters and the overall impact of lockdown is translating into some macro shifts for the wider property market,” says Tom Mundy (left), COO of Goodlord.The poll was conducted by Goodlord among 2,750 tenants.
