Over the past seven decades, Warren Buffett has made a tremendous fortune for himself and his investors. He’s done this by following a simple strategy based around buying good quality companies at attractive prices. I believe it may be possible to achieve Buffett-like returns following a similar strategy of buying cheap dividend shares. 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 Warren Buffett approachBuffett may be one of the world’s best investors, but his approach to picking stocks is relatively straightforward. He has always been interested in buying high-quality companies. These businesses generally have strong balance sheets and sustainable, competitive advantages. These advantages allow them to make higher-than-average profit margins and ensure competitors don’t steal market share. Warren Buffett has also tended to stay away from small-cap stocks. Instead, he has gravitated towards blue-chip cheap dividend shares. I think the reason why the ‘Oracle of Ohama’ has tended to stay away from smaller companies is that they’re more unpredictable. You can make a lot of money in small-caps, but you can also lose a lot of money. Warren Buffett doesn’t like to lose money. That may be why Buffett likes cheap dividend stocks. The investor wants to stick with established blue-chips, companies that already have a good track record of producing large returns for investors. By following this approach, he’s been able to limit losses while increasing profits. Cheap dividend stocksThere are plenty of undervalued income stocks available to buy right now. Buffett likes to target companies with a strong competitive advantage, like Hargreaves Landsdown. This is one of the largest and best-known low-cost online stock brokers in the country.Over the past decade, it’s established an outstanding reputation among investors for providing a good service at a low cost. As investors have flocked to the platform, profits have increased steadily, which has supported double-digit annual dividend growth.The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 2.9%,  but is down around 35% since the beginning of the year. As such, I reckon this could be an excellent opportunity to snap up the cheap dividend stock. Another Buffett-style opportunity could be Tate & Lyle. This international ingredients business has a strong reputation in the food sector. It’s been serving clients for decades, which gives it a robust competitive advantage over newer peers. The company is also a dividend champion. It currently supports a dividend yield of 4.5%.Meanwhile, the stock is down around 20% year-to-date, which suggests it may offer a margin of safety at current levels. Considering its global reputation, economies of scale and dividend history, I think Warren Buffett would undoubtedly be interested in buying this cheap dividend share. Finally, I think it could be worth taking a look at BT. Warren Buffett likes to buy companies that dominate industries, and BT dominates the UK telecommunications landscape. Unfortunately, the organisation recently cut its dividend to investors.However, considering the group’s robust cash flows, I think it could only be a matter of time before management reinstates the payout.  Enter Your Email Address I’m following Warren Buffett and buying cheap dividend shares to make a million Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shareslast_img read more

Nestled in the woods of Hudson Valley, this house was conceived as a car-lover’s dream retreat. A generously sized garage is the locus of the design, generating space for car storage and maintenance as well as a spacious wine cellar and a furniture workshop. The rectangular form of the house, which is partially embedded in the hilly landscape, emerges from the lower-level garage and creates an open plan living space ideal for entertaining, relaxing by a cozy fire, or creating a home cooked meal.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfThe exterior cladding gave us a special chance to join in on the build process.  We researched the Japanese technique of charring wood called shou sugi ban and decided that it was something we wanted to tackle on our own. Working with premium cedar siding, we charred and finished the wood prior to installation, giving it a unique and durable finish. Inset gutters maintain the sleek silhouette of the house while retaining full functionality.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfUpon approach to the house, visitors are greeted by a cantilevered entryway and an impressive twelve-foot mahogany pivot door and double height entryway. The exposed concrete wall extends from the exterior, and the continuous wood beam structure of the cantilever pulls the eye up and through the space. The stair, with solid wood treads made from hardwood trees formerly on the house’s site, draws guests to the main living level and bridges the private and public sections of the house.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe open-plan living space is anchored by an expansive window seat that provides a cozy reading nook next to the next to the built-in fireplace, while a waterfall-edge marble island graces the room with added elegance. The handcrafted concept is further embraced through the furniture and furnishings. The dining room table, a design by architect, built by craftsman collaboration between Studio MM and Elijah Leed, is accented by a Studio MM designed brass chandelier. In the master bedroom, we constructed a built-in headboard and crafted custom linen curtains.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfThe cantilevered roof from the front entry extends through to the rear of the house to shade an exterior deck. The furniture-finish plywood clad structure is supported by a single cantilevered beam anchored to the exterior fireplace. Stainless steel detailing accents both fireplaces, providing wood storage space on the exterior and additional warmth for the hearth on the interior. The furniture studio below the deck is accessed via a custom oversized bi-fold door.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfThe house’s simple footprint and partially submerged lower level begin to speak to its efficient design. During the summer, concrete floors and exposed concrete walls keep the first floor cool while the covered deck and strategically placed windows on the second floor provide passive cooling for the flexible entertaining space.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfTrue to its concept, purpose and program, this house is all about curating specific and unique design moments and providing hands-on learning experiences. Studio MM prides itself on creating homes that engage the client, highlight contemporary design, showcase local artisans, and emphasize high quality detailing and craftsmanship: TinkerBox embodies these qualities.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfProduct Description. One of our favorite design moments in TinkerBox the comfy and warm window seat, was created by using the Morso 5660 Insert Stove and Marvin Casement Windows. We’ve found that Morso offers the best quality and most efficient wood burning fire stoves available in the United States. Made from thick cast-iron, Morso wood stoves retain their heat for longer than most standard stoves made from thinner materials. For TinkerBox, we decided to use an insert style wood stove rather than a freestanding model in the living room. Recessing the stove into the wall creates a sleek modern look complimenting TinkerBox’s contemporary design. Combining these two products created a continuous corner window with the warmth of the built-in fire stove at the back of the window seat. The home’s raised presence on the site creates a superior vantage point from the window seat, making it a wonderful place to experience the beauty of the changing seasons.Project gallerySee allShow less4 Chinese Vernacular Dwellings You Should Know About (Before They Disappear)ArticlesThe Most Beautiful Visual Compositions From The SimpsonsArticles Share “COPY” TinkerBox / Studio MM Architect Photographs Save this picture!© Brad Feinknopf+ 11 Share “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

first_imgEmployers rate health and safety as one of their top two most importantworkplace issues, a survey for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) hasconcluded. The Mori poll also reported that three out of four employers said health andsafety requirements benefited their companies as a whole. The survey of 3,000 working and non-working people and 500 employers lookedat people’s understanding of ‘health and safety’, what they saw as the mainrisks at work. Most employers saw health and safety as good for business and not a strainon profits. More than 60 per cent believed health and safety requirements savedthem money in the long term. Employees were most concerned about road safety, with health and safety inthe workplace coming next. Male employees were more concerned with workplacerisks than their female colleagues, whileÊsmallÊcompanies were less aware ofthe HSE than larger firms, and were more likely to feel health and safetyrequirements were bureaucratic and expensive. A total of 60 per cent of employers had a great deal or fair amount ofhealth and safety training, although 20 per cent had none at all.
