Could investing in NIO stock today be like buying Tesla in 2015?

first_img Image source: Tesla I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Global sales of electric cars rose over 43% to more than three million in 2020, despite the pandemic. Tesla has continued to dominate the electric car manufacturing industry, with over 500,000 vehicles sold last year. However, with a monstrous market cap of over $650bn, could alternative electric vehicle stocks offer greater upside potential in the future? An electric vehicle growth stock that I think could follow in Tesla’s footsteps is NIO (NYSE:NIO).NIO production accelerated through 20202020 proved a huge year for the Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer, with its share price surging over 1,100%. In a report issued in early January, NIO highlighted a 113% increase in production, delivering a total of 43,728 vehicles in 2020. What’s more, reports in early February showed investors that delivery of vehicles had upped to 7,225 throughout January 2021, marking a 352% year-on-year increase and giving the company huge momentum.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 electric vehicle market is vast and is estimated to be worth nearly $803bn by 2027, a figure that I believe represents the potential of a business like NIO. In addition to this, company founder and chairman William Li has unveiled plans to penetrate the European market through the second half of 2021, which should mark another scale up of production and extend market reach.Recent growth stock problemsRecently, NIO stock has seen a dip in its share price, contrasting with last year’s gains. Many growth stocks have witnessed significant decline over the past few weeks due to inflation concerns, as they are especially sensitive to interest rates. With the 10-year US Treasury yield jumping above 1.4%, investors seem to be banking last year’s profits and seeking safer investments. However, this does provide a discounted share price for me.Future competitionMore concerns may arise when opening the floor to NIO’s potential competition. Tech powerhouse Apple has hinted at plans for the production of its own ‘Apple Car’ since 2014 and is currently planning a deal with Hyundai and Kia scheduled for completion by 2024.Household car manufacturer Ford has pledged $11bn for electric vehicle investments from 2018 to 2022. General Motors has set aside an even greater $27bn for electric and autonomous vehicle research and innovation, which it anticipates will allow the release of 30 new electric vehicles to the global market within the coming five years.Should I buy NIO stock?Trading at a fraction of market giant Tesla’s share price, I think the future could look bright for NIO. Penetrating the European market through the tail end of this year certainly seems like a great move for the Chinese-based company, with many European markets already ushering in policies to begin a switch to electric travel. What’s more, the year-on-year momentum of NIO is undeniable and paves the way for an exciting future.However, NIO still has to fend off fierce competition and growing inflation worries throughout 2021. But as a current investor I will be holding for the long term. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Could investing in NIO stock today be like buying Tesla in 2015?

Grocery stores out there, supplied with more saltwater tackle than some of the best tackle stores around here. Everything super costly to eat, even the fast food. Beautiful birds in all colors around our balcony. Scary at night looking out across the ocean, and knowing you were a sitting duck if attacked, or other disaster. Tour driver in van almost skidded us off into a super deep ravine when he decided to pull over, on the roadside, real fast, and hit the brakes, on a rocky road side, as we were going around and around a mountain. Saw a pure black sand beach that burnt the crud out of my feet, and went and walked on a fresh lava field. Smelled wonderful floral scent in the air plus smoky ash hazed the air everyday from the volcano. Nice place to visit but would not want to live there. You may not believe me when I say this, but I would rather live here in fabulous Apopka than Hawaii. LOL!!!! Mama Mia LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply On This Day in History: August 21st, 1959From The History ChannelThe modern United States receives its crowning star when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs a proclamation admitting Hawaii into the Union as the 50th state. The president also issued an order for an American flag featuring 50 stars arranged in staggered rows: five six-star rows and four five-star rows. The new flag became official July 4, 1960.The first known settlers of the Hawaiian Islands were Polynesian voyagers who arrived sometime in the eighth century. In the early 18th century, American traders came to Hawaii to exploit the islands’ sandalwood, which was much valued in China at the time. In the 1830s, the sugar industry was introduced to Hawaii and by the mid 19th century had become well established. American missionaries and planters brought about great changes in Hawaiian political, cultural, economic, and religious life. In 1840, a constitutional monarchy was established, stripping the Hawaiian monarch of much of his authority.In 1893, a group of American expatriates and sugar planters supported by a division of U.S. Marines deposed Queen Liliuokalani, the last reigning monarch of Hawaii. One year later, the Republic of Hawaii was established as a U.S. protectorate with Hawaiian-born Sanford B. Dole as president. Many in Congress opposed the formal annexation of Hawaii, and it was not until 1898, following the use of the naval base at Pearl Harbor during the Spanish-American War, that Hawaii’s strategic importance became evident and formal annexation was approved. Two years later, Hawaii was organized into a formal U.S. territory. During World War II, Hawaii became firmly ensconced in the American national identity following the surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941.In March 1959, the U.S. government approved statehood for Hawaii, and in June the Hawaiian people voted by a wide majority to accept admittance into the United States. Two months later, Hawaii officially became the 50th state. Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom last_img read more

Guarujá House / Bernardes Jacobsen

first_img Text description provided by the architects. The whole idea of the project was created when Thiago was visiting the site. There, in front of the client, he sketched what later would be the transverse section of what was being proposed: a vacation house, for a couple and their two kids. A place where they could invite friends over frequently. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityWindowsAccoyaAccoya® Windows and DoorsWindowsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedDesigned to be a pavilion supported by only five pillars, with en-suites bedrooms, living room(s)/sitting room(s)/dining room(s), balconies and a pool facing the beautiful sight of Guarujá beach. Preserved terrain and vegetation. Facing the street, a low and discrete horizontal façade. Save this picture!The sea is the main focus of the building’s greatest view, but this didn’t follow the best sun orientation. Willing to take advantage of the great view, the decision to place the pool away from the building was taken, having then the house east facing and the hillside throwing a shadow over the pool. Due to the terrain’s inclination, a structural deck 18m above the ground was used as a foundation to the development of a new area. Also, this deck had to be supported by only five tree-shaped concrete pillars because of the difficulties found on making the structural foundation. Above this deck the whole structure is metallic, which makes the building process simpler, since it’s all made in loco. Save this picture!Since the house is detached from the ground, it acts as a big tree shading the smaller ones, keeping the natural process of the forest and preserving it. Save this picture!This platform consists of the whole social area of the house and a great external deck with the swimming pool lane in its extremity. The trees where planted in this level, giving a sensation of the house being in the canopy of the trees. Save this picture!Apparently the house is limited to the two floors above this deck, but actually, most of the plan is placed below it. The house is accessed from the second floor, where there are two en-suites bedrooms and also the entry hall. In the bottom floor we have the housekeeper’s house, kitchen, service-area, steam bath, gym and four bedrooms. Save this picture!The whole house was structured on steel and the doors and windows were made of wood and glass. The floor surface is covered of wood, giving the sensation of softness, and also making the deck look like floating. In the areas where their aren’t any eaves, the walls are covered with copper and due to the rain exposure, the material will change naturally, making it look even more beautiful. Inside, wood is the main material, used, for example, on the balcony linings. Accomplishing such a project was very gratifying for the architects. A big, large planned house witch disappears in the forest.

Dairy Farmers Honor Indy 500 Rookies at Annual Event

first_img Fastest Rookie 2013Indiana dairy farmers and race car drivers were hanging out together Tuesday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The pairing is an annual tradition at the track known as the Fastest Rookie of the Year luncheon and this year’s was the 39th such event. The drivers met the 500 milkmen and they of course hope to meet again at the end of the race when the winner receives the traditional bottle of milk.“That would be the ultimate dream,” said Conor Daly, a Noblesville native. “At 21 years old if I could do that I would be probably the happiest person on the planet.”Daly is the son of former driver Derek Daly and he is racing for AJ Foyt Sunday, so he has known the Indianapolis tradition all of his life.“This is the biggest race in the world without a doubt. I’ve been racing in Europe for 2 years and I’ve been to all the big races. I’ve been to Monaco and most of the big races and there is just nothing like this place. It’s just fantastic to be here.”Daly starts from the back row but in the middle of row 2 is former Champ Car and NASCAR driver AJ Allmendinger. Winning this race and being handed the milk is a real possibility and would be the highlight of his career.“No doubt about it. As a race car driver to get handed a bottle of milk is kind of what you dream of and I’ve dreamed about drinking that milk. My parents will be here for the first time at Indy since Rick Mears won his first race in 1979, and being named after AJ Foyt it’s been my father’s lifelong dream to see me run this race. So I’ll probably take a huge swig of it and the next thing you know my dad will be the big guy jumping in the camera and stealing it and taking a drink for himself.”Joining the rookie drivers is Tristan Vautier (left) from France and the fastest rookie of the 4, Carlos Munoz from Colombia. He was almost the fastest overall qualifier and starts from the middle of row 1. But Munoz doesn’t yet want to envision a victory circle celebration.“I don’t like to anticipate stuff. I don’t want to put pressure on myself with everyone expecting me to win because I’m being so fast. I think I have to do my job the best I can do out there on the track to not make any mistakes and I’m sure the result will come from that.”Milk Promotion Services of Indiana sponsors the rookie event and the $5,000 in prize money for Munoz in addition to a $10,000 check for the race winner.

Guest Opinion | In 2011, PUSD was Thinking About its “Georgia issues” with Student Testing Cheating

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  We weren’t the first to recognize that Pasadena Unified School District test cheating has similarities to the Atlanta, Georgia, testing scandal that sent 11 educators to jail.Yesterday’s Pasadena Now op-ed titled “Student testing cheating – Does PUSD have Georgia issues?” compared the Georgia cheating scandal to PUSD’s ignoring evidence that Roosevelt Elementary School cheating was more pervasive than admitted. But PUSD’s now-retired Chief Technology Officer Dr. Gary Carnow saw that parallel 5 years ago. Dr. Carnow was PUSD’s point man in 2011 who “investigated’ cheating at Roosevelt and Sierra Madre elementary schools. In his September 2, 2011, email to 6 PUSD administrators, Dr. Carnow told his fellow administrators “State of California dropped the part of the contract with ETS regarding Erasure Detection in 2009 to save money. There will be no Georgia issues found in California.”Why did Dr. Carnow have a sigh of relief that the CDE dropped Erasure Detection in 2009?The “Georgia issues” that Dr. Carnow says won’t be found because erasure detection is no longer in use in California refers, of course, to the test cheating scandal in Atlanta. “ETS” is the Educational Testing Service, a test development and testing company. The “Erasure Detection” program detects cheating by scanning answer-sheet erasures, identifying the first and second marks on paper test sheets. This cheating-discovery method’s premise is that a high percentage of wrong-to-right erasures deviating from the statistical norm probably indicates testing irregularities such as school employees prompting students to correct mistaken entries. The California Department of Education contracted with ETS for statewide erasure detection before 2009 and from 2012-2013. For budget reasons, it dropped statewide erasure detection between 2009-2011 – the period during which Roosevelt Principal Juan Ruelas showed remarkable test score increases at Madison. Erasure detection became an unnecessary cheating-detection method beginning with 2015 SBAC testing because paper tests were eliminated in favor of secure electronic testing.Dr. Carnow’s email suggests a PUSD culture tolerating cheatingA school administrator who seriously intended to address cheating in PUSD’s schools and who knew that the CDE stopped erasure detection would likely say something like “We’re going to have to buy ETS’s Erasure Detection program in order to investigate the extent of the cheating.” Dr. Carnow’s comment communicates that cheating won’t be detected rather than asking “what do we do to discover the extent of cheating? He is saying that PUSD won’t get caught cheating coaching students to erase and replace wrong answers because the cheating-detection measures aren’t in place – so celebrate and give a sigh of relief that California dropped erasure detection! The PUSD culture reflected by his remarks is an attitude that cheating should be ignored when it can be. It suggests that the 2011 cheating scandals may have only been the tip of the iceberg, with 90% of the problem ignored because it wasn’t on the surface.Additional statistical test-score analysis indicates the need to rigorously investigate Roosevelt’s test scoresYesterday’s graphic chart was a macro-summary of Roosevelt’s test scores which suggests test score statistical patterns consistent with Roosevelt’s cheating opportunities, or lack thereof, from 2009-2015. Just like PUSD’s Board President Elizabeth Pomeroy, PUSD’s Board Member from the Madison District, Patrick Cahalan, dismissively rejects that such data can validly suggest that undetected cheating was going on at Roosevelt. Cahalan offers no alternative explanation for the data. He just says that you have to look at smaller data sub-sets to draw valid conclusions. But the first suggestion in the U.S. Department of Education’s 2013 “Testing Integrity Symposium: Issues and Recommendations for Best Practice” section on “Test-score analysis” is to do macro-examination and it suggests then drilling down to look at “individual student-level data as well as classroom or school-level results to identify unusual trends.”The Roosevelt cheating that Dr. Carnow’s 2011 investigation identified was in the 2nd grade. Statistical analysis of a 2011 class from the 2nd grade is useful to determine whether it is likely that there was a failure to investigate other 2011 cheating at Madison. Statistical analysis of Roosevelt’s 2011 3rd grade testing at “proficient” or higher is thus revealing. Despite having a high English-second-language population, Roosevelt in 2011 tested that a remarkable 97% of its 3rd grade class were “proficient” or higher in English – a statistic that invites suspicion. 2011 was also the last year in the 3-year interval that the state did not conduct erasure testing. What would likely happen If Roosevelt took advantage of the 2011 opportunity to cheat when the CDE was not doing erasure detection but then curtailed cheating in 2012 when it had to avoid getting caught again because the CDE re-instituted erasure detection? The 3rd grade class would likely have significantly lower percentages of proficient and proficient-plus English ratings when the 3rd grad became to 4th grade in 2012 the 5th grade in 2013. This chart shows that happened.

GRONEMEIER and SKIP HICKAMBOTTOM Published on Tuesday, February 23, 2016 | 7:19 pm Community News Make a comment Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * 3-YEAR CLASS PROGRESSION CHARTPUSD’s Roosevelt “investigation” records are inexplicably missingDr. Carnow’s attitude seems to reflect a PUSD culture tolerating student test cheating. Statistical analysis of both the macro-scores at Roosevelt and the micro-2011 3rd grade class both suggest cheating. With indications of much more systematic Roosevelt cheating than with just 3 students in Roosevelt’s 2011 2nd grade class, we suspected that Dr. Carnow’s attitude would lead to a cover-up investigation rather than a rigorous investigation. So we reached out to Dr. Carnow by email and voicemail to ask him about whether his investigation was sufficiently rigorous, He ignored our requests to talk to him. So our next step was to ask for PUSD’s investigation records to determine how rigorous Dr. Carnow’s investigation was. Instead of getting investigation records, we got a rude surprise.In December, we made the public records requests to PUSD Superintendent McDonald for all documents showing testing cheating investigations at Roosevelt while Ruelas was its principal. McDonald’s January 22 response, through PUSD’s attorney Jeff C. Marderosian, admits that such PUSD files that should exist cannot be found, saying that “[a]fter being unable to locate a file that should exist, I instructed staff this week to contact the California Department of Education (CDE) and request a copy of the Department’s entire file regarding the testing issue at Roosevelt in the 10-11 school year. Staff has made the request to CDE and I will advise you when it is received. From the documents you were sent early in the week, it appears that Dr. Carnow handled the matter and that it involved 3 students at Roosevelt. I have no explanation as to why the file could not be located.” It turns out that the CDE also has no files on Madison’s student test cheating except for a single letter acknowledging that PUSD reported cheating concerning the testing of the 3 students.PUSD needs to hire an independent investigator to systematically analyze Roosevelt’s testing under RuelasThe issue now is not just whether Superintendent McDonald’s rationale for imposing Ruelas on Madison can any longer be defended. His rationale is in tatters and plainly cannot reasonably be defended. There are now broader issues as to whether PUSD has a culture of tolerance for cheating and has been ignoring systemic cheating issues. PUSD’s continuing to bob and weave to protect Superintendent McDonald for his disastrous Roosevelt decision is a recipe for disaster for a public school system that requires transparency and accountability. Dr. McDonald and PUSD’s Board need to end their ostrich-like evasion, face up to the problem by hiring an independent and reputable professional knowledgeable about cheating detection to do a thorough investigation and publicly disclose the complete investigation report, and remove Ruelas as Madison’s principal.Dale Gronemeier and Skip Hickambottom are local civil rights attorneys who represent the Madison grassroots coalition, the Citizens Council for Empowerment and Justice at Madison.

Average salary in property is now £58,633 and grew 12% last year, it is claimed

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Average salary in property is now £58,633 and grew 12% last year, it is claimed previous nextAgencies & PeopleAverage salary in property is now £58,633 and grew 12% last year, it is claimedSalary research by RICS also reveals that gender pay gap at junior levels has narrowed to 3.5% but on average across industry remains shockingly high.Nigel Lewis12th March 20180814 Views A salary poll of property professionals has revealed that pay rises for qualified estate agents are currently at a ten-year high and that the gender pay gap is narrowing among junior agents, but still shockingly wide at the top.These claims are made by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) after it canvassed 7,000 professionals across all sectors of the property industry including sales and lettings agents, valuers and block managers.RICS says that across the industry the average salary for its members grew by 12% or £6,271 last year – when total remuneration packages are taken into account – to an average of £58,633.The extra cash is being spread across all regions of the UK, too, with Northern Ireland enjoying the steepest pay rises, followed by London and the South East.Bonuses levels increased last year too and now average £15,703, says RICS.The RICS & Macdonald Salary Survey also looked at the gender pay gap within the industry. Last year female property professionals under 26 years old were paid 3.5% less than their male counterparts, but overall the gender pay gap across the industry is 30%.The property sector also appears to be in relatively rude health. Half of the respondents to the survey said their company was expecting to increase headcount this year.Average salary in property“More employers are placing [a] greater focus on attracting and retaining talent, with attractive pay and benefit packages,” says Barry Cullen, RICS’ Diversity and Inclusion Director.“For the property profession to be a world leader in Diversity and Inclusion we need to place diversity at the heart of an organisation and ensure we retain our talent and build off the great advances we are seeing with our younger professionals.”RICS doesn’t say how many women versus men work in the industry. But if last year’s The Negotiator conference is an indicator, then women are still a minority within the industry.Of all the delegates visiting the conference, registration records suggest two thirds were male.
