The Airbnb share price: could it be set to soar as lockdowns ease this summer?

first_img 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. The Airbnb share price: could it be set to soar as lockdowns ease this summer? Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Airbnb (NASDAQ:ABNB) went public at the end of 2020. It had the usual choppy first few weeks, especially considering the environment and timing that this travel-focused company decided to list. However, 2021 has started in a much more positive way. The Airbnb share price is up 28% since the start of the year. Tomorrow it announces its first trading results as a public company. With plenty going on in the market at the moment, could this be a growth stock that I should look to buy?The brief back storyAirbnb is a US-based (and US-listed) property marketplace that allows users to book accommodation around the world. The business started in 2008, but has since revolutionised the holiday and business rental market. The ease with which someone can list their space (be it a bedroom, flat, even a treehouse) for booking is attractive, as is the booking process. With a high focus on technology, Airbnb grew quickly over the past decade. 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…As with other early stage growth companies, Airbnb was loss-making for several years. It eventually turned profitable in 2016, but hasn’t maintained profitability since. As a private company, the market couldn’t value Airbnb via the share price. Therefore, internal funding rounds happened at various different valuations over the years. In April last year, $1bn was raised with a valuation of $26bn, down from a $31bn valuation in 2017.Airbnb pushed back going public due to the pandemic impact. With a lack of reporting requirements, I can’t accurately say how much revenue or bookings fell during last year. However, it’s definite that it was significant, with the firm having to cut its workforce by 1,900 employees.Is the Airbnb share price on the up?The issues of last year are not beyond us. I’d imagine it will likely report underwhelming figures tomorrow on all fronts. However, I’d also expect a positive outlook for 2021, based on a global economic recovery and vaccine rollout. The easing of lockdown has already begun in some countries, with the UK looking to be open by June.Given this outlook, I do think the Airbnb share price could offer good value. If we see a dip on results tomorrow, I’d look to buy the shares to hold for the long term. I think the share price could mirror the bounce-back that we should see in airline shares and other travel stocks. If more people are flying and travelling, more people need accommodation. The concern I have with the Airbnb share price is the already generous market capitalisation. It sits at $112bn, with the share price around $187. For comparison, Booking Holdings (the main competitor) has a market value of $96bn, having been listed for decades. Maybe investors are already pricing in a bumper year for Airbnb. In other words, the 28% rise since the start of the year may mean that the ship has already sailed. If I already held the shares and expected a surge, I might be disappointed.Ultimately, I think a lot will depend on the tone of the results tomorrow. Therefore, I’m going to wait for them to be released and make a judgement call then. I’m ready to buy if we see a share price drop.

This single family house is located in the town of Calera, northwest of the city of Córdoba. It is a mountainous area from which one can see all the north of the city and the city center. The house has 230sqm arranged in 3 levels, a living room in the basement, the social area and one bedroom on the ground floor, and the suite on the upper floor, leaving an accessible terrace overlooking the city.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanConceptually, the house was conceived as a large social space that houses kitchen-dining-living room, where the staircase appears as a sculptural element, which was materialized with reinforced exposed concrete and presents a structural challenge as its only points of support are at the start and at the end upstairs.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteTaking advantage of the good orientation and views, it was materialized fully glazed to the north, with an overhang that protects this facade. The grand opening of this facade creates the possibility of turning the entire interior space into a partially covered space as a gallery, having direct contact with the outside.Save this picture!Upper Floor PlanThe outward expansion was proposed as a terrace due to the large level difference in the site, with different sectors, shade, solarium, terrace with loose gravel, and a square pool 2 levels deep, which is structurally cantilevered over the lower area of the site.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe link to this expansion is through a large staircase, which due to its width generates a living space on it and offers a good place to contemplate the views.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteClimatically, energy savings were proposed due to the entry of sunlight in winter throughout the house, through the north-facing glass facade, and avoiding heat loss to the south, with a very opaque facade, giving not only climate protection but also privacy to the house. In summer the entry of sunlight is prevented with the overhang which protects the north facade, and the heat gain through the wall on the west is diminished due to the double brick wall design with thermal insulation inside.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe entire house is contained in a single volume with clean lines, with a stripped down aesthetic, with a plane of a different color and texture attached to it that generates the access, and a series of planes that generate the double garage.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Steven Holl and the Architectural ExperienceArchitecture NewsTower 41 / Taller de Arquitectura X / Alberto KalachSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeFederico OlmedoOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCórdobaArgentinaPublished on January 06, 2015Cite: “La Rufina House / Federico Olmedo” [Casa La Rufina / Federico Olmedo] 06 Jan 2015.

The site is located in Camberwell, Victoria on a unique L shape block, overlooking a leafy park. The existing architecture is rendered precast at first floor, sitting on external clinker brick planes at its base. Its living areas were originally situated at first floor.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeSave this picture!Ground and First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Dianna SnapeThe brief was mostly pragmatic. More space for a large family, better zoning, and importantly to create a better connection to the outdoors but not lose the stunning views of the neighbouring parkland.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeTo resolve this common negotiation, we created a new split level for the living areas and the entry experience was re-routed to this new centre which now served as a connecting element to very clear zoning, Kids, Parents, Guests, Living and outdoors.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeThe feeling of being in the new space is of standing on-top the fence, in total connection with the park, with the split level allowing a lofty ceiling to accept the leafy aspect. The pavilion concept emerged organically from here. Timber posts form the boundaries of a “pavilion” and support a timber lined canopy overhead. The rhythm of these posts creates a tactility and depth to the edges of the space, modulating the hardness of the glass surface. The external clinker brick planes re-appear to bookend the new interior, suggesting that the living areas are an external space. Simple ceramic pendant lights drape down at each post location and a dramatic fireplace reinforce the verticality of both the space and the neighbouring trees.Save this picture!Elevations and SectionsThe space defers to its mid-century roots in its horizontality, honesty in steel connections and braces, natural materials and joinery details. An external venetian blind enlarges the ubiquitous 50’s venetian, and the space is furnished with mid-century but forward looking furniture, and decorated with Australian natives, connecting to its immediate natural environment.The new living areas have been sited to face north east and north west. Large expanses of glass are utilized take in the natural beauty and allow winter sun to penetrate deep into the space. To balance the large expanses of glass, we used a high performance insulated glazed unit with a low E coating.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeLarge internal walls of face brick have been judiciously placed to allow their thermal mass to accept morning, midday and afternoon sun, and regulate internal temperatures all year around.  Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeSun penetration is regulated with northern eaves and an external venetian that spans the entire length of the main north eastern and north western façades.All new spaces are naturally cross ventilated, and all natural timber Is native plantation oak.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeHigh level clerestory windows are protected from the late western sun by deep fins than mirror the rhythm of glazing and architectural breakup on the existing home. These serve to block hot sun, but also catch the colour of the late afternoon sun to create a warm ambience in the lofty spaces.Save this picture!© Dianna SnapeProject gallerySee allShow lessThis Accurate, Augmented Reality Virtual Ruler Is Pretty ImpressiveArchitecture NewsOPEN Architecture Reveals Art Spaces for the Coastal City of Qinhuangdao Inspired by…Unbuilt Project Share Houses Projects CopyHouses•Camberwell, Australia Photographs:  Dianna Snape Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Camberwell House / AM Architecturecenter_img Save this picture!© Dianna Snape+ 15 Share Photographs ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/875110/camberwell-house-am-architecture Clipboard Lead Architect: “COPY” Andrew Mellios Architects: AM Architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project Australia CopyAbout this officeAM ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCamberwellAustraliaPublished on July 13, 2017Cite: “Camberwell House / AM Architecture” 13 Jul 2017.

Schweitzer is flourishing. From street cop to district attorney investigator to family law litigator, Pasadena family law attorney Don Schweitzer has never compromised or lost the passion to care. In fact, each career experience has heightened his ability to really value the human side of a family law case, while still maintaining each client’s legal best interest as a tough litigator.“I followed my passion, goals and dreams as they were evolving through the years,” says Schweitzer, founder and partner of one of the most respected family law firms in greater Los Angeles. “I have a love for helping and protecting people and that’s been the real common theme in all of my professions,” he explains.Schweitzer’s upward career path never followed the standard track. It didn’t start in study halls but on the streets, as a cop.“When I started as a police officer, I never dreamed that I’d leave to become a lawyer,” he remembers. “But it wasn’t until I was in a court of law, as I became an investigator with the Deputy District Attorney’s office, that I had this burning desire to do what they were doing.”During Schweitzer’s 10-year career as a police officer he was named “Rookie of the Year” at the Santa Ana Police Department, and within six years worked his way through the ranks to become a Detective in the Criminal Street Gang Unit.Schweitzer enrolled in Southwestern University School of Law and spurred by his street-savvy and understanding of human nature gravitated towards Criminal Law.After law school, Schweitzer was assigned to the Family Support Unit at the D.A.’s office in Orange County.“I went kicking and screaming into that unit,” says Schweitzer, “but by the time I finished my one-year assignment, I loved it. I knew that I had a real interest in family law.”While at the District Attorney office, he successfully tried over 70 cases with a 95 percent conviction rate. Schweitzer handled almost every type of case imaginable, including enforcement of child support cases, DUIs, felony narcotics, homicides, assaults with a deadly weapon, and sexual assaults.Today at his firm, Schweitzer wears many hats but when it comes to going to court he says, “The skills and everything that I’ve developed through my careers have a fascinating way of fitting together. In court I’m able to draw upon all that experience and be not only compassionate for my client, but also very protective over his/her legal rights. It’s this natural instinct that takes over.”The Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer, now in its 10th year, represents the collection of Don’s experiences. The firm is progressive and constantly evolving to adapt to the ever-changing family law situations and even technological advances that help expedite cases. At the same time, the firm is proactive with how it manages each client’s case, while maintaining compassion and sensitivity to each.Practicing family law, Schweitzer and his team encounter people who are going through “probably the worst experiences of their lives,” he says.“These people are fragile when they come to us, and they’re looking for somebody who’s going to carry them through,” Schweitzer says. “Being the person who can help requires somebody who’s compassionate. It’s no different to me than when I was a police officer or deputy D.A. I have people’s lives in my hands and I have an ethical duty to take care of them.”The firm’s staff and attorneys understand the demands of family law litigation, especially as it pertains to divorce, domestic violence, and estate planning. Additionally, Don is adamant about carving out time each month for “Lunch and Learns,” where he and his legal staff sit and educate, motivate and inspire one another.And his dedication to the firm isn’t where Don’s passion stops. As a resident of Pasadena, Don is very active in the community. Currently, he is the president of the Pasadena Bar Association. He also spearheaded a speech and debate team at Maranatha High School, co-founded an annual high speech scholarship competition sponsored by the PBA, and he and the firm are helping to raise funds for Foothill Unity Center’s Mobile Dental Clinic that serves needy elementary school-aged children.All the real-world experiences Schweitzer has, from being a police officer to becoming a lawyer, line up perfectly to give Schweitzer a well-rounded view of the world, and it continues to motivate him to never be stagnant, but constantly evolve and search for the next stepping stone to become a better family lawyer. What remains the same is Don’s love for helping and protecting people—it’s part of his DNA, and the backbone to his successful family law firm.For more about the Law Offices of Donald P.

You Need To Know A Few TricksHerbeautyHerbeauty PUSD Superintendent Dr. Brian McDonald.School board members and local officials at the ‘State of Schools” address.Saying “We are poised to do great things,” Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Superintendent Dr. Brian McDonald delivered an optimistic assessment of the District, but admitted that the District still faces some challenges.McDonald said that nearly 36 percent met or exceeded the standards for English, while approximately 29 percent met or exceeded in Mathematics. This would place the students just below the state average, which is 44 percent in English and and 34 percent in Mathematics.Positioning the results as an opportunity for the district to do better, MacDonald said, “The test results provide a more authentic picture of students’ abilities, which allows teachers to tailor instruction to their needs.”Pasadena school’s have also begun to rise slightly this year, said McDonald, reaching 17,100 students this year.Elementary school enrollment has increased, but McDonald said “There is room for improvement at the secondary level.” McDonald cited Jackson Elementary School which will enroll 100 new students this school year, as a success. The school was slated to be closed just a few years ago.PUSD President Dr. Elizabeth Pomeroy also spoke at the “State of Schools” address at Elliot Arts Magnet in Pasadena this morning, as did the individual board members.“PUSD is engaging in meaningful communication between families and schools, but this is an area in which we can still improve,” said Pomeroy. “This year, we are continuing new ways to foster communication using a variety of dynamic and engaging platforms to overcome some long standing issues we have had about accessing timely and accurate information. Most importantly we want to change the narrative and highlight the great work of our teachers, our students, and our world class partners.”The PUSD Board has made communication, collaboration and community engagement its top priority for this upcoming year, Pomeroy added.Pomeroy explained that family and community engagement is a major focus of the board this year. “The importance of this engagement in supporting students at every grade level is well-documented,” she said.“PUSD is investing in this engagement,” she continued. The school is leveraging LCAP (locally controlled) funds to help the investment in community collaboration, she said.For the first time, Pomeroy reported, the board has approved funding for skilled community assistance at all schools to support parent and community engagement.The address also honored student Kimberly Meija, a graduate from John Muir High School, who was awarded the Gates Millennium Scholarship, one of only 1,000 students in the US to achieve the honor.The school district has reported achievements in other non-academic areas as well.

UL falls 20 places in university rankings

first_imgFacebook Twitter Linkedin  THE majority of Irish universities, including the University of Limerick, have seen a decline in the QS World University Rankings 2014/15, published this week.UL dropped 20 places from last year’s ranking, from 503rd place to 523rd,.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Other Irish third level institutions that saw a decline were Trinity College Dublin in 71st place (10 places), University College Cork in 230th place (20 places), Dublin City University in 366th place (17 places) and Dublin Institute of Technology in 558th place (22 places).University College Dublin retained its position of 139th place, while NUI Galway rose by four places to 280th place.QS head of research Ben Sowter said that funding cuts to third level education have had an impact on the ranking of Irish institutions.A spokesperson for the Higher Education Authority (HEA) commented: “Out of 15,000 plus higher education institutions, it is important to note that Irish universities still feature in the top five per cent in the world. While rankings are subjective and don’t measure the full contribution of the university to society and to the economy, we cannot ignore them.“Universities with greater sources of both public and private investment can obviously develop their research and teaching capacities further and hence their reputation and their perceived global ranking.”UL’s highest ranking in the survey in recent years was in 2007 when it reached 394th place.
