Share Pubs outperforming retail sales KCS-content Growth among the UK’s leading restaurant and pub groups slowed in March, but the market still comfortably outperformed retail, according to the latest Coffer Peach Business Tracker figures. The research shows like-for-like sales grew 0.9 per cent in March, with total sales, which include new site openings, up 3.4 per cent on March 2010. March sales were 22.3 per cent ahead of February, though March was a five-week month compared to a four-week February.

Big yielders such as oil major BP or iron ore giant Rio Tinto might look mighty tempting.I’d argue that buying shares in Polymetal International (LSE: POLY) would be a much better raw materials stock to load up on. The FTSE 100’s only dedicated gold miner has jumped 50% in value over the past 12 months.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…However, tension over the geopolitical and macroeconomic backdrop, allied with expectations that central bank policy will be loosened further, remains high. And the tragic coronavirus outbreak has added to market jitters.Gold’s value has retreated more recently from early January’s seven-year highs of around $1,600 per ounce. It was last trading at $1,565. But those drivers of the safe-haven bullion price are still in place and another move to fresh peaks could be just around the corner.Top assets to come on-lineBuying Polymetal is a great way to get exposure to the yellow metal. Investor appetite for the digger certainly remains strong, its share price hitting record highs just shy of £13 this week. But the Russia-focused company isn’t just a great play on the possibility of another upswing in gold prices. I also like the impressive progress it’s making operationally.Blockbuster output from its flagship Kyzyl mine helped annual gold equivalent production rise 3% to 1.61m ounces. Bullion production will remain flat in 2020 and 2021, it says. But growth will move skywards again from 2022 once its Nezhda mine starts producing late next year.Nezhda — which is 100% owned by Polymetal — is Russia’s fourth-largest gold deposit with an expected life of around 25 years. Development here remains on schedule, as does the execution of the company’s Amursk POX-2 processing centre. This is due to come on-line in the latter part of 2023, will be able to process up to 300,000 tonnes of gold concentrate per year from the company’s assets, and will significantly reduce costs and boost recovery rates.Buy today, hold until 2030Fresh news today reminded me of Polymetal’s exceptional production possibilities. New geological studies at its Kutyn asset has seen it double its gold reserve estimates to some 800,000 ounces.According to chief executive Vitaly Nesis: “The new reserve estimate significantly enhances the value of Kutyn for a potential acquirer or partner.” He said that the company continues “to evaluate various strategic options” for Kutyn and that it plans to announce news of a transaction during the second half of 2020. The mine was previously marked for sale, or as a possible joint venture target, owing to its small size versus Polymetal’s other monster assets.Investing in mining shares can be considered a risky business. Exploration studies can disappoint. Production outages can happen for a wide variety of reasons. Costs can spiral. However, the news flow out of Polymetal continues to impress and its long-term growth outlook remains quite brilliant.It’s expected to record a 31% earnings rise in 2020 alone. And at current prices it carries a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of 10.9 times and a corresponding dividend yield of 4.7%. This is a blue-chip I’d be happy to buy today and hold for the rest of the decade.

Scared you’ve missed the market recovery boat? Don’t panic — I think there are still a few quality stocks available at great prices. Here, for example, are two from lower down the market spectrum that I’ve been buying for my ISA this month. They’re certainly not risk-free, but the rewards could worth waiting for. ISA buyMy first ISA purchase has been a small stake in small-cap ceramic tableware manufacturer and distributor Churchill China (LSE: CHH).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…At first sight, this might seem a very odd move. After all, the company’s biggest customers are pubs, restaurants and hotels — the very places that have been closed for months. And yes, even if the government allows some of these sites to open in late June, trading could be very tough for quite a while.Nevertheless, I still think quite a lot of this is priced in. The share price is, after all, still down 40% from the highs hit at the start of the year. If you believe current estimates, this leaves Churchill trading on 13 times forecast earnings. That’s cheap relative to its five-year average of a little under 19.Second, this firm has shown all the hallmarks of a quality business, namely fat margins and decent (and rising) returns on capital employed. It’s also got a sound balance sheet with net cash of £15.6m in April. Third, a large proportion of the company is still owned by the Roper family. That’s something I really like to see because it implies their interests will always be aligned with those of your typical retail investor. Another tick in the box.Let’s be clear on this: Churchill’s 2020 numbers will likely be very poor and the shares could fall again when it next reports to the market.As a medium-to-long-term recovery play, however, I’m cautiously optimistic that the margin of safety is now sufficient to begin investing.Sometimes, you just have to press the buy button. Cost-cuttingA second market minnow I’ve been buying for my ISA in June has been laser-guided equipment manufacturer Somero Enterprises (LSE: SOM). Fortunately, this purchase went through before the recent trading update that saw the shares rise almost 4.3% on the day. In response to uncertainty over how long the coronavirus will be with us and what impact it will have on business, Somero announced another range of cost-cutting measures last week, designed to save around $5m. Roughly 20% of its staff have been furloughed and all bonus-related pay has been cancelled. Capital expenditure has also been reduced further, although product development is still ongoing. That’s not to say the small-cap is in financial distress. Management believes the company will have $24m in net cash at the end of this month. And while current revenues are already 25% below the $90m originally targeted by analysts in 2020, they reckon it will still be cash generative if they tumble another 20% from here.Naturally, no one knows what happens next with Covid-19. Like Churchill, there’s always a chance the stock could fall in value. With its focus on construction projects, Somero is also undeniably cyclical, which explains why the market has long been reluctant to slap a high price on its shares. Even so, I can’t help but think that a company like this trading on less than eight times earnings already offers great value. Time will tell.

Stuart Hogg gets to wear the ten jersey for the first time and leads a backline designed to fit the attacking mantra “go, go, go!” However they perform defensively, speed going forward is at the heart of their approach.Which will be just swell… provided the Scottish set-piece performs much better than it did against Ireland. Six lost lineouts was a disaster. Dave Cherry is in at hooker, while injuries mean that there is a brand new lock pairing with Skinner and Gilchrist jumping for the ball. Dominating collisions has to be back on the agenda.And look who else is back in the mix. Zander Fagerson has just served a lengthy ban having taken a red against Wales and if he is to reignite talk of a Lions tour he faces a big fortnight. He needs to make an impact, while playing clean and staying on the referee’s good side.Scotland team to play Ireland – Sunday 14 MarchStuart Hogg; Sean Maitland, Chris Harris, Sam Johnson, Duhan van der Merwe; Finn Russell, Ali Price; Rory Sutherland, George Turner, WP Nel, Scott Cummings, Jonny Gray, Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson, Matt Fagerson.Replacements: David Cherry, Jamie Bhatti, Simon Berghan, Grant Gilchrist, Nick Haining, Scott Steele, Huw Jones, Darcy Graham.RUGBY WORLD VERDICTJamie Ritchie’s return is timely, writes Sarah Mockford. He and Hamish Watson have developed a great partnership on the flanks, and they’ll need to be at their best to keep a snaffling Irish back row in check.It’s a shame to see Darcy Graham drop to the bench as he is a real livewire in attack. Gregor Townsend may feel Sean Maitland will be better under the high ball, particularly given his bigger frame, but let’s hope Graham gets a decent chunk of game time as he could jink his way through Ireland’s defence.Scotland team to play Wales – Saturday 13 FebruaryStuart Hogg; Darcy Graham, Chris Harris, James Lang, Duhan van der Merwe; Finn Russell, Ali Price; Rory Sutherland, George Turner, Zander Fagerson, Scott Cummings, Jonny Gray, Blade Thomson, Hamish Watson, Matt Fagerson.

Text description provided by the architects. Antony House on the Pembury Estate in Hackney provides 30 units of shared ownership accommodation for the Peabody Trust. The redevelopment of the former construction compound provided the first opportunity for a new building on the estate and a chance to forge a fresh urban identity. The challenge throughout has been to maintain a degree of permeability whilst ensuring security in an area known for high levels of crime. The shape, scale and orientation of the scheme complement and complete the existing pattern of built and un-built spaces on the Estate and retain the flow and generosity of the outdoor spaces. Each of the thirty units benefits from generous balconies and glazing, ensuring a fluid interaction with the landscape. Save this picture!Creating a positive intervention within the streetscape, the inclined plane of the upper storeys cantilevers over a timber clad plinth; the darker upper form ‘peeping’ around the corner towards Pembury Square. The plinth mirrors the shape of the site, its rich materiality generating a soft and welcoming presence that guides visitors towards the entrance to the building; the timber continuing beyond to define the edge of the courtyard gardens. Sited within a secure yet permeable boundary, the landscape design provides car and cycle parking together with waste storage facilities. All units are double aspect maximizing both the natural light and views. Living rooms and bedrooms are situated along the private balconies on the west elevation and bathrooms and kitchens have been located on the eastern side, allowing for a rational and modular service core. Save this picture!A rich layered façade is formed by an outer skin of fixed mesh panels, which follow the ‘zig-zag’ pattern of glazing behind, adding a dynamism and depth to the façade. The inner layer of red render responds to the colour of the surrounding brick blocks. The simplicity of the palette of materials is carried through to the detailing of the components; the lack of visible supports to the balconies and mesh screens along the walkway generating a sense of openness and a connection with the outdoors.Project gallerySee allShow lessArreletes Day Care Centre / Vilalta StudioSelected ProjectsI’m lost in Paris / R&Sie(n)Selected ProjectsProject locationAddress:London, UKLocation to be used only as a reference.

The site is long and narrow and the brief asked for both housing and stores to be implemented on the plot. We wanted to avoid “a wall of housing” at the street side and we didn’t want to create a blind wall on the backside of the stores, and by doing so hide the park. Instead, we connected the park and the urban street by placing the housing blocks across the site – thus creating passages in-between the stores as well as letting the existing park continue onto the pitched roof above the shops.Save this picture!© Adam MørkWith this main concept we tend to bring more life into the area and at the same time contribute by introducing new qualities such as different views, passages, and by creating an extension of the park rather than a border of the park, thus making the green space bigger than before. Here you can live close to public transportation and stores with the feeling of living in a park which flows in between the housing blocks. Another key attribute of opening up the site is that it welcomes other pedestrians and invites them to experience the area with its clash of urban and green characteristics.Save this picture!© Adam MørkThe facades of the stores are angled to break down the scale and to create small outdoor seating areas. Additionally, the geometry of the housing blocks was designed in close relationship with the surrounding urban context as it is lowest towards the existing lamella houses and highest towards the urban city scale and center. The low evening and morning sun in Uppsala provides light to the balconies and creates varying reflections between the housing blocks.Save this picture!Apartments PlanThe characteristic facade pattern is inspired by snowflake formation, which from a distance is experienced as a uniform white. As you get closer to the buildings though, you start to notice seven different colors behind the perforated aluminum plates. Each color is placed on a unique building, functioning as a navigation tool throughout the entire project. The colors all together on the other hand are a representation of the color pallet that can be found throughout the city of Uppsala.Save this picture!© Adam MørkProject gallerySee allShow lessSkovbakke School / CEBRASelected ProjectsKartasan House / Atelier Vens VanbelleSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Uppsala, SwedenLocation to be used only as a reference.
