As a turbulent 2020 draws to a close, it’s time to consider which UK shares to buy for next year.It’s hoped that recent developments on a Covid-19 vaccine will help the global economy rebound strongly. But even if the coronavirus crisis drags into 2021 — and economic conditions don’t improve significantly over the next 12 months — there are still plenty of top-quality UK shares that should thrive in the short-to-medium term.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…An added bonus is that a great many five-star stocks trade at rock-bottom prices following the 2020 stock market crash. This provides an opportunity for investors to supercharge their long-term returns by buying low today and selling at a much meatier price later on.Cheap UK shares with BIG dividendsHere are a few top-class UK shares I’m thinking of adding to my Stocks and Shares ISA today. They’re dirt cheap and they’re expected to continue paying fatty dividends to their shareholders as well:Sabre Insurance Group is a terrific selection for 2021. The car insurance colossus trades on an undemanding price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14 times for 2021 right now. And this UK share’s forward-looking 6% dividend yield blows the market average out of the water too. Car insurers like this aren’t at the mercy of the economic cycle as their products are legally required by drivers. But this isn’t the only reason why Sabre Insurance is a great buy for next year. I’m also encouraged by signs that gross written premiums have picked up at the business in recent months.6.7% dividend yields!Getting exposure to the e-commerce market is another sound idea as online sales in the UK balloon. One great way for investors to do this is by buying shares in Urban Logistics REIT. This UK share provides logistics facilities that allow businesses to get their goods straight to their customers. And it remains active on the acquisition front to bolster profits growth in the coming years. Expectations that earnings will surge 36% in the upcoming financial year (to March 2022) leaves it trading on a corresponding P/E ratio of just 14 times. And this bodes well for dividend investors as well. Under real estate investment trust rules, Urban Logistics is expected to pay nine-tenths of yearly profits to its shareholders in the form of dividends. As a consequence, this UK share carries a monster 6.7% dividend yield for fiscal 2022.GlaxoSmithKline also offers plenty of all-round value at today’s prices. As well as trading on an earnings multiple of 12 times for 2021, the FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals colossus carries a mighty 5.9% dividend yield. Not only does the essential nature of its products make this a brilliant UK share for these uncertain times. But I expect profits at Glaxo to steadily rise over the long term as global healthcare investment climbs and its packed development pipeline delivers the next generation of blockbuster drugs.

Stock market crash 2020: how I’d capitalise on a rare chance to get rich Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Many shares haven’t yet recovered from the 2020 stock market crash. Despite improving investor sentiment and the prospect of a brighter economic outlook in the long run, some stocks continue to trade at cheap prices.Buying them could prove to be a profitable long-term move. Through building a diverse portfolio of high-quality companies presently experiencing weak operating conditions, it may be possible to generate a surprisingly large nest egg in the coming years.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…Buying high-quality shares after the stock market crashA number of today’s cheap shares are still unpopular many months after the stock market crash because of their weak near-term outlooks. Some sectors, such as energy, financial services and leisure, are facing unprecedented challenges at the present time.In many cases, their potential to grow sales and profit in the short run is very limited. As such, investor sentiment towards them is weak. This has caused their share prices to lag the wider index in many cases.Buying such companies may not seem to be an attractive idea to many investors. However, those companies that have difficult operating conditions, while also having solid financial positions and a competitive advantage, may offer recovery potential over the long run.They may emerge in a stronger position after the stock market crash relative to their weaker sector peers. This may enable them to deliver improving financial performances in the coming years that translates into rising stock prices.Diversification in a stock market recoveryIt’s easy to become complacent as a stock market recovery replaces a stock market crash. This may lead to a portfolio that lacks diversity, in terms of the number and range of companies held within it.However, as this year’s market decline showed, a bull market can quickly turn into a bear market. This can come without any warning. Yes, it may be tempting to only invest in the very best shares available at the present time.But ensuring a portfolio is diversified could be crucial in generating high returns in the coming years. After all, it’s unclear which companies and sectors will deliver growth in what could be a fast-paced and different economic outlook in a post-coronavirus world.A long-term approach to buying cheap sharesOf course, a second stock market crash could occur in the near term. Risks such as Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic may remain in place for some time. They could prompt a period of weaker investor sentiment and a more challenging period for the world economy’s performance.As such, taking a long-term view of any stocks purchased now could be important in generating high returns. The stock market has always posted new record highs after its various declines. Using a buy-and-hold strategy may enable an investor to take advantage of a similar outcome after the 2020 stock market crash.

I reckon these 5 FTSE 100 stocks could be among the best shares to buy today Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Halma. 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. I’ve been looking for the best shares to buy today. And I’ve found plenty of attractive looking stocks in the FTSE 100. My best shares to buy todayThe shares I’ve been considering can be broadly split into two different buckets—companies that have benefited from the pandemic, and those that may benefit from the recovery. 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…Businesses that fall into the second bucket include BHP, Rio Tinto and Anglo American. These are some of the largest mining companies in the world. They produce everything from iron ore, a key steel component, to coal, copper, nickel, platinum and even diamonds. Countries worldwide are already developing economic plans to help recover from the pandemic. For example, the UK is planning to spend as much as £100bn on infrastructure projects over the next few years. Chinese policymakers have plans to spend as much as £5.7trn. These massive infrastructure commitments will require tremendous amounts of resources. That should be great news for BHP, Rio Tinto and Anglo American. Demand is already translating into higher prices. The price of iron ore has increased by nearly 100% over the past 12 months. These tailwinds are the reasons why I believe these FTSE 100 companies could be some of the best shares to buy today. That said, these businesses aren’t without their risks.Mining can be a challenging profession. Corporations have to deal with labour disputes and health and safety issues all the time. These can push up costs and hit profit margins. At the same time, the commodity market can be highly cyclical. Just because iron ore prices have increased over the past 12 months doesn’t mean that will continue to be the case. They could fall just as fast, leading to large losses for mining enterprises. Still, I’d buy these stocks for my portfolio based on their income and growth potential. FTSE 100 growth The other bucket of investments that I reckon could be some of the best shares to buy now are businesses that have prospered in the pandemic. Companies that fall into this bracket, in my opinion, include Bunzl and Halma. Bunzl’s sales increased by a mid-single-digit percentage in the third quarter of last year. Meanwhile, Halma projected a decline in profits for the year of between 10% to 15%. That’s not the best return, but it’s better than many other FTSE 100 companies. Unfortunately, just because these firms have performed well over the past 12 months, doesn’t mean they’ll continue to do so. However, both organisations have an impressive track record of being able to grow through both the good and bad times. They’ve used a mix of organic expansion and acquisitions to drive growth. This strategy isn’t without its challenges. Buying smaller firms can end up in disaster, and if these companies spend too much, they could run into problems with their creditors.Both Halma and Bunzl are also labour-intensive businesses. That exposes them to the risk of rising wages, which could hit profit margins and cause the groups to lose customers if they raise prices. Nevertheless, I’d buy these FTSE 100 firms for my portfolio.

He started working for the WRU as a coach in 2004.6. Jenkins was awarded an MBE for services to sport in 2000 and appointed Honorary President of Pontypridd RFC in 2019.7. Jenkins admitted his marksmanship improved on the 1997 Lions tour to South Africa when he encountered Dave Alred, the former England kicking coach who famously worked with Jonny Wilkinson, for the first time.“It was a real eye-opener and it helped me massively. I learnt an awful lot from him: I actually started using a tee rather than sand, which I hadn’t thought was possible for me,” said Jenkins.8. A BBC documentary about the player was entitled Working Class Hero and his autobiography, co-written with journalist Paul Rees, is entitled Life at Number 10.9. Jenkins famously suffered from pre-match nerves – he was seen being sick on the iconic Living With Lions documentary of the 1997 tour.His fellow tourist Jerry Guscott later wrote of Jenkins, in his diary of the trip: “Great goalkicker, great laugh. Despite his superb discipline and confidence as a goalkicker, which did so much to win the series, there’s a funny sort of insecurity there.”10. Probably Jenkins’s most famous kick was his conversion of Scott Gibbs’s try that won the 1999 Five Nations game against England at Wembley. Not only did it give Wales a 32-31 win but it denied England a Grand Slam and handed Scotland the title.He once said of kicking: “I imagine putting all my problems in a black box and closing the black box and putting them behind me out of the way.” Who is Neil Jenkins: Ten things you should know about the Lions assistant coachNeil Jenkins’s playing career spanned both the amateur and professional era, and after retiring he moved into coaching and is now a highly-respected kicking coach.Here are a few facts and stats about the former Wales fly-half.Ten things you should know about Neil Jenkins1. Neil Jenkins was named as part of a British & Irish Lions party for the sixth time when he was announced as an assistant to Warren Gatland for the Lions 2021 tour to South Africa.Jenkins was a player in the series win over the Springboks in 1997, played a Test in Australia in 2001 and coached on the 2009, 2013 and 2017 trips.2. Jenkins scored 41 points in three Tests on that 1997 tour to South Africa, playing at full-back, but nearly missed the historic trip altogether after breaking his arm in the final Five Nations game against England.“A surgeon came to see and he confirmed the original diagnosis: that I would be fortunate to be playing within four months. I had less than eight weeks to prove my fitness for South Africa,” he said.3. Jenkins made his Test debut for Wales against England, aged 19, in 1991 in Cardiff when his opposite number was Rob Andrew.His last Test match, of 91 for Wales and the Lions, came in 2002 against Romania at Wrexham.In between he amassed 1,090 points. He passed 1,000 international points in 2001, the first player to achieve that feat.4. Born on 8 July 1971 in Church Village, Jenkins was a pupil at Bryn Celynnog Comprehensive School in Beddau, which also boasts fellow internationals Gethin Jenkins, Michael Owen and Ellis Jenkins as former attendees.5. Jenkins played for Pontypridd, who he joined aged 15, Cardiff and the Celtic Warriors at club level. He made 237 appearances for Pontypridd between 1990 and 2003 scoring more than 3,000 points before the ill-fated formation of the Warriors. The former Wales fly-half is now a renowned kicking coach LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS

Grow Box is a 1,975 sf home in Lexington, MA, designed for an MIT University Professor of Engineering, his wife, and their young son. The landscape surrounding the house was (and still is) in pristine condition, with elaborate plantings and over 40 different varieties of Japanese maple trees painstakingly cultivated and maintained by the clients. The extents of the existing gardens limited the footprint of the new house, but inspired an architecture that utilizes landscape to affect space that expands beyond the physical limits of the house. The resulting design is a compact volume penetrated by slot gardens and entry decks that both deﬁne space within the house, and erode the boundary between interior and exterior. Save this picture!© John Horner PhotographySave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© John Horner PhotographyIn an effort to elaborate on our interests in social threshold and expanded boundary conditions, we incorporated six recessed exterior gardens within the interior of this tight 1,975 sf two-story ‘box’ wrapped in Cor-ten steel. Each recessed garden expands and negotiates a new type of relationship between standard programs: bed and bath, kitchen and living, upstairs and downstairs. These pockets of exterior space nested within the interior create the perception of spatial expansion while paradoxically compressing it. These spaces pursue a curious connection and social dynamic between the users within these various corners of the house. A spatial buffer is able to amplify and frame through transparence and spatial layering.Save this picture!© John Horner PhotographySave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© John Horner PhotographyThe slot recessed gardens are organized geometrically by one ﬁve foot by six foot central “landlocked” courtyard garden on the first level that contains a single Himalayan birch tree. This garden, which will collect rain in the summer and snow in the winter, underlines one’s experience of the elements as the literal and metaphorical centerpiece of the home. Entryways on each facade provide ready access to the yard, while copious operable windows, sliding doors, and framed views reinforce the reciprocal relationship between house and garden. On the exterior, the visual contrast between the hard geometry of the house and the sinuous landscape is both enhanced and obfuscated by the raw hue of the weathering steel panels that comprise the house cladding. Large areas of glazing surrounding the slot gardens and ﬂoor to ceiling windows reﬂect the surrounding trees and plantings, further blurring the distinction between architecture and nature.Save this picture!© John Horner PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessLiminal Studio with Snøhetta and Rush Wright Wins Competition for UNESCO World Herit…Architecture NewsStudio Gang Reveals Design of Arkansas Arts Center ExpansionArchitecture News Share Area: 1975 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs: John Horner Photography Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Grow Box / Merge Architects Lead Architect: Save this picture!© John Horner Photography+ 17Curated by María Francisca González Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/889835/grow-box-merge-architects Clipboard Architects: Merge Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Lexington, United States CopyAbout this officeMerge ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLexingtonUnited StatesPublished on March 01, 2018Cite: “Grow Box / Merge Architects” 01 Mar 2018.
