Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square: 4 things investors should know

first_img Nadia Yaqub has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Chipotle Mexican Grill and Starbucks and recommends the following options: short January 2021 $100 calls on Starbucks and short January 2021 $100 calls on Starbucks. 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. See all posts by Nadia Yaqub Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square (LSE: PSH) has been confirmed as a new entry to the FTSE 100. After a stellar run, the investment trust will enter the blue-chip index later this month and I believe investors need to know the following four things.#1 – The portfolioPershing Square is Ackman’s hedge fund, which makes concentrated investments in North American companies. Ackman can ‘go long’ and bet the stock will rise, or ‘short’ where he believes the share price will fall.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…As of November, the hedge fund manager had 10 long positions in North American companies. The stocks included coffee house chain Starbucks and restaurant brand Chipotle. Like Warren Buffett, Ackman invests in simple, predictable businesses that have high barriers to entry. Buffett would describe these companies as having a moat around them.Ackman takes big positions in companies where he is typically the largest shareholder. This way he can be an activist investor and it able to influence the company at board level.#2 – Pershing Square Tontine HoldingsWithin Pershing Square’s 10-stock portfolio, Ackman holds a large stake in Pershing Square Tontine Holdings. It listed on the New York Stock Exchange in July 2020 and is Ackman’s Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC).An SPAC is a company created with the sole purpose to merge or acquire other businesses. The SPAC raises money from investors and then uses these funds to purchase existing businesses.Pershing Square investors get access to Ackman’s expertise in mergers and acquisitions of companies through PSTH.#3 – PerformanceAckman is a man who makes big bets. Earlier this year, he was concerned over the economic impact of Covid-19 on the American economy.In February, Ackman backed his concerns with a $27m bet on financial instruments, whose value would rally when investors started to protect themselves against companies defaulting. This bet worked in Ackman’s favour and he made a profit of $2.6bn in the market crisis, which he reinvested in undervalued companies. Pershing Square’s strong performance this year has been driven by this trade.Recently, Ackman has repeated his bearish call. Although not as big as his earlier bet, the hedge fund manager believes US companies will struggle and has taken insurance against corporate defaults to hedge the risk of his stock portfolio falling in value.#4 – Discount to NAVPershing Square shares are trading at a discount of 24% to its Net Asset Value (NAV). The investment trust’s entry into the FTSE 100 should somewhat reduce this discount.All the passive funds that track the index will need to buy the shares in substantial quantities. This bulk buying means that Pershing Square’s share price is expected to rise in the short term.Would I buy?I expect Pershing Square shares to rise in the short term but I won’t be buying. Ackman’s large bets make me uncomfortable and he has a very concentrated portfolio.It’s great when the investments work in his favour but his large calls can also go sour. I can’t help but question whether he will be able to replicate the success of his earlier bet and am uneasy about paying a significant performance fee.   Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Guayasamin House and Museum / Diego Guayasamin

first_img Year:  “COPY” Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionSimilarly, two different typesof scales and sensations can be defined. A friendly one for the private spaces,and another, large-format one for the social areas that contribute to the ideaof a museum. To complement the interior architecture, furniture has beendesigned in proportion to the space, specific carpentry for the project.Furniture, decorative objects, fabrics, and imported carpets. Lighting designspecific for a museum, integrated audio and security systems, among others. Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoThe main floor has been zonedinto three large spaces: bedroom block, social areas, and independent suite,alternately distributed along the main circulation axis that starts at theentrance of the residence and ends, at the other end, with the entrance to thesuite. In the center of this circulation is the vertical core with an elevator.There is an additional recreational area, with a pool and a waterfall, a greenarea and viewing deck. Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoThis project could also be seenas an experiment that has merged the experience and creditworthiness of amature architect with the new concerns and expectations of a young architect. Atthe same time, it is the epilogue of the work of architect Gustavo Guayasamin,with almost 60 years of professional practice, who at 80 years has been able toconceive a project of this nature.

Area:  1800 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoInside, the house follows thesame approach as on the outside, simplicity but with a strong image. A whiteenvelope for walls and ceilings with a dark contrast. The color of thedifferent areas is highlighted uniquely by artworks of three types: colonial paintingand sculpture, pre-Columbian archeology, and Guayasamin contemporary painting.

The site selection was a long and very important process because it required a space that would foster expectations for the project. A large area was required on the outskirts of Quito but directly related to the city. These objectives were translated into a hill in the area of Rancho San Francisco – Cumbaya. The location of the site implies a clear and strong visual presence for the developments in the area, and also privileged views of the Cumbaya valley and its surroundings. Save this picture!© Sebastián Crespo Since the site had a steep slope, the first approach was to integrate the project into the local topography and design it on the highest area to gain height. Taking advantage of the slope, lawn slopes were designed to serve as a natural base for the proposed architecture. The social areas are located towards Cotopaxi mountain. The bedroom area is oriented directly with the morning sun, and overlooking the Cumbaya valley with the Cordillera Oriental and Antisana and Cayambe mountains behind. Internal areas such as study, family room, and others, “open” towards an interior courtyard with a reflecting pool, and in the middle a pre-Columbian milestone designed by architect Gustavo Guayasamin, as the vertical axis of the project. Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoIn terms of its image, the houseis an architectural volume, protagonist and dynamic. It is the articulation ofwhite volumes with a very clear and defined rhythm, and slanted exterior walls.All the elements are intended to be an interpretation of the environment,specifically the Andes. The roofs have the same treatment as the slanted walls,thus creating the idea of the “fifth facade”. The roof-facade is equallyimportant in the aesthetic composition. This is a modern project that rescuesEcuadorean traditional architectural elements such as: load bearing walls,stone baseboards, interior courtyard with a water feature, great presence ofwalls versus openings for windows mostly recessed to create light and shadoweffects, among others. The designer’s intention wasalways to make a different proposal, but with a strong identity. Consistentwith its context and its design style. Thereby providing a reference of what isor may be contemporary Ecuadorian architecture. Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoThe house is divided into threelevels: a basement with parking and storage areas, with service housing andspaces for employees, which can function independently. A main floor with themajority of the components of the project, and a mezzanine for guests and movietheater.

The donation follows the precedent set in 1985 by the government which made a donation to various charities working in Ethiopia and Chad through the Overseas Development Agency of an amount broadly equivalent to the VAT collected on sales of the original ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ single.

JICMAIL launches to provide mail media metrics

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. New Joint Industry Committee (JIC) for Mail has launched JICMAIL: media metrics for direct mail, based on research on audience engagement with the channel.JICMAIL aims to help users of direct mail and suppliers of the channel understand the power of mail by providing data of the same standards as similar metrics for television, radio, outdoor and press. This aims to help to create a level playing field for all media channels and deliver a clear understanding of their respective values.JICMAIL’s Board is chaired by DMA Group CEO Chris Combermale and includes representatives from industry bodies and businesses including the DMA, IPA, ISBA, Royal Mail and Whistl to represent both users of the channel and relevant suppliers.How it worksJICMAIL data is collected using a panel weighted to NRS. Over each quarter JICMAIL tracks the mail activity of 1,000 households. Panellists record the mail they receive for a week and subsequent mail actions for three more weeks. Panellists are then removed from the panel and “rested” to avoid panel fatigue.JICMAIL provides audience data for mail, measuring the readership, reach and frequency of exposure to each item that comes through the letterbox. This data is captured, in partnership with Kantar TNS, using a diary that follows each piece of mail for four weeks in a nationally representative sample of 1,000 households per quarter across the UK.Two quarters of data collection have already taken place, with JICMAIL surveying 1,846 households.Key insights from this include:On average, 51% of all mail is read immediately – whether addressed or door drop – with a further 19% followed up on laterIn addition, each piece that enters the home is revisited 3.8 times on average across either format21% of all addressed mail and door drop items go on to create commercial actions, for example prompting a purchase, visiting a website or going to a physical storeFollowing the initial launch of this first six months’ worth of data, a quarterly report will be issued highlighting the latest insight from the panel data, administered through Kantar TNS, which can be found at www.JICMail.org.uk.Chris Combemale said: Advertisementcenter_img Tagged with: data direct mail DMA research “Traditionally, direct mail has been measured on ‘after-the-event’ impacts like ROI, but these new metrics will provide insight at the all-important planning stage, enabling it to go head-to-head with other media when budgets are being allocated. Clients are increasingly demanding accountability for every penny they invest and in 2018 planners will finally be able to compare directly between mail and other media channels. The fact that this is a cross-industry initiative highlights the importance of the JICMAIL research and continued influence of the channel.”Mike Colling, Member of the JICMAIL Board, IPA member and Founder and CEO MC&C, said:“What JICMAIL does, for the first time, is normalise mail to bring it in-line with every other major channel. It gives us exactly the same data across these channels, allowing marketers to compare apples to apples when it comes to their media planning. Moving mail from being a special case being dealt with in a silo and put it in the hands of the media planners and buyers.”  143 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12last_img read more

The announcement came in an email from Kathy Cavins-Tull, vice chancellor of Student Affairs, and Provost Teresa Abi-Nader Dahlberg last week. Frog Camp and orientation, domestic and international study abroad, campus visitors, and campus events and food services are just some of the activities that will be adjusted. However, all events will still have to follow TCU health and safety protocols.The adjustments will officially begin on May 10, the first week after the spring semester ends. Cavins-Tull and Dahlberg also mentioned in the email that the TCU community can check TCU’s Connected Campus website for the most up-to-date information. Vice Provost Susan Weeks announced Thursday at the Faculty Senate meeting that requests for TCU activities can be submitted by faculty for approval in the weeks leading up to May 10. “The provost is currently working on communications specific to academic affairs to kind of flush out some of how that will be fulfilled within academic affairs,” said Weeks. Social distancing will also be determined in May depending on the federal guidelines, said Weeks. Between 95-100% of courses are planned to be held on campus next fall. These are the guidelines that TCU will follow depending on the physical distancing policy:95% – 6ft physical distancing 98% – 3 feet distancing100% – no physical distancingThe CDC recently lowered its distancing requirement in schools from six to three feet.Over 180 volunteers worked the TCU COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Saturday, March 6, 2021. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Cavins-Tull and Dahlberg also encouraged the TCU community to register for the vaccine through TCU and Tarrant County Public Health. They advised that if a student receives the vaccine off-campus, they should notify the university.As for summer classes, Weeks said that some will be still be held online. Financial aid will be available and look similar to last summer’s aid. “The deans have really worked to curate a portfolio of courses that really meet the needs of our students,” said Weeks. “We are continuing to streamline how the summer schedule is curated and how it’s scheduled to try to reduce some of the labor that really falls on a lot of our department chairs at this point.”The Board of Trustees meetingChancellor Victor Boschini told the Faculty Senate that three presentations will be given at the Board of Trustees meeting on April 9.These presentations include COVID-19 and its effects on the TCU community, an update on the Race & Reconciliation Commission and speaking appearances from university governance leaders. “This is the start of a great new tradition,” said Boschini in regards to the governance leaders.The governance leaders have also invited the head of staff, the head of students and the head of faculty to come and give a presentation and hold a Q & A session with the board.The chancellor also mentioned that around 15 or 16 resolutions will be made, many of which are honorariums. The most important ones, according to Boschini, are tenure promotion, membership eligibility, board leadership, and election of the executive board. The meetings will take place from April 7th to 9th.
