Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address 2020 was a tough year for the GlaxoSmithKline (LSE:GSK) share price. Despite making critical progress in the fight against both Covid-19 and HIV, the pharmaceutical stock dropped to its lowest point in over 10 years. And it’s What caused the GSK share price to fall? And is this a buying opportunity for my income portfolio?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…The business during the pandemicDespite the disruptions from Covid-19, GSK has actually performed relatively well considering the operating environment.Overall, revenue from both the pharmaceuticals and vaccines divisions were down by 3% and 2%, respectively. But newly approved products within its portfolio have seen a significant average increase in sales of around 10%. And due to rising demand for hand sanitiser, its consumer healthcare business also achieved notable 12% growth.These are hardly groundbreaking results. But due to cost-cutting, net income for the year actually increased by 24% to £5.75bn. Consequently, dividends weren’t cut in 2020, and roughly £5bn of debt was repaid.Needless to say, this is all quite positive. So why has the GSK share price dropped by nearly 30% since the start of last year?Why is the GSK price falling?In early 2020, the company announced that its consumer healthcare business will be spun off in a joint venture with Pfizer in 2022. The cost of this separation is expected to be around £2.4bn, with £1.6n being covered by disposals. Given that GSK is still a £60bn company even after the decline in share price, this doesn’t seem too expensive to me.Once the consumer healthcare segment has been separated, GSK will become a pureplay R&D drug development company. Which, rightfully, has created concern among income investors.Why? Because as I’ve previously discussed, drug development is a risky business. Creating new medicines is a lengthy process that typically takes up to 10 years. And even after reaching the final phase of clinical trials, there’s still a possibility that a drug won’t receive regulatory approval or become economically viable.I believe the increased risk profile of the business has undoubtedly contributed to its share price decline. However, the primary catalyst appears to be the fact that the company is going to be much smaller after the split. The consumer healthcare division currently contributes 40% of total revenue and that will disappear after 2022.Consequently, GSK’s famous 4% average dividend yield is expected to be cut some time in the future, making the stock look far less appealing for income investors.Is this a buying opportunity?But the collapse in the GSK share price looks quite attractive to me. Don’t forget that the company isn’t splitting for another year. And so, due to the falling share price, the dividend yield today is now around 6.4%, a payout that’s more than achievable in 2021. At least that’s what I think.However, once the company has split, it will be significantly different. Developing new drugs is a difficult task, as I said. But the firm already has 20 new products expected to launch between now and 2026. What’s more, 10 of these new drugs are expected to generate over $1bn in revenue each.To me, GSK looks like it’s transforming itself into a growth stock. And with decades of experience under its belt, this is one business I’d be keen to add to my portfolio. The GSK share price is down 30% since the start of 2020. Should I buy now?

Summer Test: New Zealand 39-21 Wales

first_imgAttendance: 46,270For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. New Zealand recovered from an 18-15 half-time deficit against Wales to continue their unbeaten run at Eden Park, which dates back to 1994. It was an impressive first half from Wales, who produced a far more dangerous attacking game than witnessed during the Six Nations that resulted in tries for Taulupe Faletau and Rhys Webb. Yet, the All Blacks, making an uncharacteristic number of errors, still scored two themselves in the opening 40 minutes, Julian Savea and Waisake Naholo crossing.The world champions reduced those errors in the second half and upped their offload game while Wales seemed to retreat into their shells a little, failing to make the same yardage that they did in the first half. A second try for Naholo and one for Kieran Read put the game out of Wales’ reach before replacement hooker Nathan Harris added a little gloss to the scoreline with a try in the last minute.WHAT’S HOTFabulous full-backs – The two men with the number ‘15’ on their backs at Eden Park were outstanding. Catching the ball deep, they both made huge yardage up the field – and created a try apiece in the first half. Ben Smith caught a misjudged Dan Biggar kick, strode through the defence and passed wide to Aaron Cruden, who released Waisake Naholo on the inside to score. Fifteen minutes later, Liam Williams scythed past the two All Black locks, drew Smith and put Rhys Webb away for a try. Brilliant runners with ball in hand, they proved too slippery for many defenders to grasp and were pretty solid defensively too. Williams even earned praise from the New Zealand TV pundits – a tough crowd to please!Running man: Liam Williams impressed from full-back. Photo: Getty ImagesNew Zealand’s production line – For all the talk of the world champions being a team in transition, with the likes of Richie McCaw, Dan Carter, Conrad Smith and Ma’a Nonu retiring post-World Cup, the All Blacks team is still packed with experience. Carter’s No 10 shirt has been filled by Aaron Cruden, a man who’s played in a World Cup final himself, while Sam Cane, who has captained the All Blacks, slots in at openside instead of McCaw.Yes, you can’t replace players of the calibre of Carter and McCaw – important as much for their aura as their rugby ability – but the guys coming in still have plenty of experience and talent. New Zealand must be applauded for the endless stream of class rugby players they produce.Double time: Waisake Naholo bursts through the Wales defence. Photo: Getty ImagesAttacking verve – The All Blacks are renowned for it and there were plenty of glimpses here – Waisake Naholo’s sudden change of pace fooling Wales’ defence, Aaron Cruden’s deft chips finding team-mates in space, Brodie Retallick’s offloads keeping the ball alive. It was just the number of errors that disrupted their momentum at times.What was more surprising was the adventure shown by Wales with ball in hand. They still kicked plenty of ball but there was purpose to it, trying to get players in behind the New Zealand defensive line, and there was more of a willingness to run it from deep and spread the ball wide. Liam Williams and George North both continually troubled defenders, ducking and stepping round tackles, while Jamie Roberts was putting in long passes as well as breaking the gain-line. Warren Gatland has talked about being “brave and bold” – and Wales certainly showed that at times.Ardie Savea’s hair – The flanker, who made his Test debut against Wales, has taken the ‘high and tight’ look favoured by players like Danny Care to another level. It’s a big call but it could well be the best haircut in rugby!Hair raising: Ardie Savea’s haircut stands out in this team shot. Photo: Getty ImagesWHAT’S NOT Opening act: Julian Savea scores the first of New Zealand’s five tries against Wales. Photo: Getty Images LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Error count – This was New Zealand’s first game since the World Cup final last October, and it showed. There were probably more knock-ons by All Blacks in the first 40 minutes than there were in the whole of their RWC 2015 campaign. They were lethal when they got quick ball and spread it wide, but too often there were dropped balls, knock-ons or other mistakes that disrupted their flow. They made twice as many handling errors as Wales in this game and had their own ball disrupted at the breakdown by Wales – don’t expect them to look so rusty in Wellington next week.Arrowhead: Kieran Read and the All Blacks perform the haka before kick-off. Photo: Getty ImagesWhite-line fever – At the end of the first half, Wales had a five-metre scrum under the posts. When the ball came out Rhys Webb fed Jonathan Davies, who was brought down a metre from the line. Then Taulupe Faletau had a go – one metre out again. Wales continued to pummel the line but couldn’t get over it, when perhaps moving it wide would have been the better option. They needed to give the All Blacks a bigger half-time deficit to recover from than three points.Inorganic chants – It was rather strange to see the words ‘All Blacks’ flashed up on the big screen at Eden Park to encourage the crowd to chant for their team. Surely the chants and songs we here at games should be an organic process? Not generated by offering instructions over screens or tannoys. Let fans create their own atmosphere.On the line: Rhys Webb is congratulated on his try by Sam Warburton.

The house is located in a private neighborhood outside the city, the land is flat and located in a corner, with neighbors to the south and east side, the west contains a large line of trees that separates the house from the street and takes a turn into the north where both entrances lie: one pedestrian and another one for cars, there are two bodies floating, the one on the left is a large box covered in gray stone that levitates over  the street opening a gap where the cars are stored, the second body  is transparent and light, larger and higher, which shows the pedestrian entrance, it is a volume of windows to the north and west  sheltered by a white steel lattice, obeying the relationship with the sun, as this orientation is extremely hard in the city. Save this picture!sketchThe transparent volume at the entrances expands by the side of the trees, the lattice covers its front face and is secured to a vertical wall at the back, which eventually blocks the heat from the west, in the back, two walls rise and bend horizontally to create a great flying ceiling of 36ft. (11mts.) over the garden and pool, supporting a second floor where the master bedroom is located so that it gets a complete open view to the garden which is surrounded by woodland. Save this picture!© Carlos Diaz CoronaThe entrance platform is elevated because the house has a semi-basement, thereby it allows to generate different uneven levels opening the flow in several directions, the inside is completely open, with almost all the walls in the same direction, this is quite evident from the courtyard entrance, which is a well it double height gap, where the main circulations converge, one vertical and the other a translucent glass bridge connecting the two ends on the first floor. Save this picture!© Carlos Diaz CoronaThe house structure is steel, it was built during a situation where this material was at a low price, allowing to build an almost floating house. The house opens with a long and folding window system in the background, integrating the garden into the interior, making social spaces in a fully integrated large terrace with a garden and pool, this allows to live the cool and privileged Guadalajara’s weather, the dining room looks out above the  terrace  and communicates above the garden with the kitchen and studio, the two stairs set off from the basement  to the second floor, one leads to the services and the other weaves the social and private spaces of the house. Save this picture!© Carlos Diaz CoronaThe roofs are flat on the front but slightly declined on the back due to construction regulations covered with coated yellow ceramic, the walls are mostly smooth, floors are marble and wood, the carpentry is all in dark colors, using white steel on many elements of the house.Save this picture!© Carlos Diaz CoronaProject gallerySee allShow lessLiving City 2035 Challenge Competition Proposal / University of IdahoArticlesMayor Signs Contracts Drunk, Blames Design FirmArticles Share Save this picture!© Carlos Diaz Corona+ 34 Share “COPY”center_img Architects: Hernández Silva Arquitectos Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/166055/godoy-house-hernandez-silva-arquitectos Clipboard 2007 “COPY” Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/166055/godoy-house-hernandez-silva-arquitectos Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this officeHernández Silva ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZapopanHousesMexicoPublished on September 04, 2011Cite: “Godoy House / Hernandez Silva Arquitectos” 04 Sep 2011.

During the next 14 years, more than 8 million acres burned annually another eight times, making nine of the last 14 years the highest annual totals of burned wildfire acreage. After several years of these record-breaking wildfires, The 2019 CoreLogic Wildfire Risk Report analyzed properties at risk of damage from wildfires in the United States.CoreLogic’s study revealed not only a continuation of fires and associated destruction in the United States but an escalation of these events. Based on an analysis by CoreLogic for 2019, there are 775,654 residential properties at extreme risk of wildfire damage in the 13 Western states, with a reconstruction cost value (RCV) of just over $221 billion.Due to both their larger geographic size and large populations, California and Texas lead the United States in the number of residences and RCV in the high- and extreme-risk categories. Both states contain fuels and terrain that contribute to higher risk classifications and have population centers near high-risk areas. Colorado, which has experienced several record-setting fires since 2010, ranks third for the number of homes in both the high and extreme categories. While other states tend to have fewer properties, of the remaining 10 states, half have more than 50,000 residences in the high- and extreme-risk categories combined.California, however, cannot be topped when it comes to wildfire devastation over the past two years. In 2017, California’s wildfires, including the Tubbs Fire and the Thomas Fire dwarfed previous records for both the size of the fires and the amount of destruction. In 2018, new records were set again for both categories, along with the number of deaths for a single wildfire event, the Camp Fire.“When considering the future of wildfire risk in the Western United States, it will likely expand to more homes and result in the greater property losses than we have seen in the past,” said CoreLogic. “As unfortunate as it sounds, there are other communities similar to Paradise where fuels are present and homes are at risk. It only requires the right weather conditions and an errant spark to create the next unwanted record.” Tagged with: Damage Disaster wildfirecenter_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
