Image source: The Motley Fool Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Christopher Ruane Every February, investors look for wisdom in the annual shareholder letter of Berkshire Hathaway. Its chief executive, Warren Buffett, is a legendary investor famed for his stock market success. Investors can learn a lot by following Buffett. I’ve been following his advice for my own portfolio in 2021. Here’s how.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…Buy a part of a business, not sharesBuffett often talks about shares as buying a part in a business. Instead of focussing on short-term movements in share prices, he suggests shareholders imagine that the stock market was closed for a prolonged period of time. If they have bought into the right business, the inability to offload their shares for a while ought not to make any difference. They would still own part of a great business and would expect it to be worth more over time.I adopted that mindset recently in buying shares in Unilever. The company’s shares have fallen lately so I felt there was a chance to get into a good business at an attractive price. With brands like Dove and Knorr in its stable, I expect the company to thrive for many years to come. If I didn’t look at the share price for years, I still expect Unilever products would be in regular use around the world.That might not be the case, though. Post-pandemic demand for household cleaning products could fall, for example. That’s why, like Buffett, I diversify across different investments. That helps reduce the possible negative impact of any one investment on my overall investment performance.Warren Buffett likes strong brandsA lot of businesses require heavy expenditure. For example, owning an estate of buildings or conducting medical research can be costly. Buffett does invest in some industries with high expenditure requirements, like railways. But he has often said that he likes well-established brands, that can generate pricing power for decades without necessarily needing much further investment.That helps to explain why Buffett has held shares in Coca Cola for decades. The company’s brand portfolio is so strong that it should be able to generate profits for decades even with limited investment. After all, people still remember classic ads like the one based on “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” even though it was created half a century ago!Buffett sticks to what he knowsOne interesting thing about Buffett is how many great investment opportunities he has missed out on. That’s no idle mistake on his part. Buffett only buys into companies where he understands the market and the company. So he is willing to forego outstanding opportunities because he prefers to stick to his knitting.That is true for industries – for example, Buffett is very comfortable in insurance but for many decades steered clear of tech. But it is also true of specific companies. Buffett sometimes decides to invest in a company by reading its annual report and accounts. If he doesn’t feel comfortable from that, he doesn’t invest.That’s a very interesting insight for me, because it suggests that Warren Buffett’s legendary investments are made with the same sort of information I can find on the Internet. As long as I focus on areas I understand, and research companies properly, I could emulate Buffett’s approach of sticking to what one knows.

House with in-home office constructed in Osaka. The lot is flag-shaped, adjacent to the road at west side and beside to the neighbors on the east and the south. The north neighbor is built at about 5meter lower site which is one of the big factor while planning this house.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaFirst about lighting; we could not plan a lot of windows at its east and south side due to privacy sake, because the neighbors are at those two sides. And we could not put them at west side either, due to the afternoon sun. On those conditions, we built the big white wall at its west side while reflecting the lights from east and south at its inside to the rooms. This white wall is also the biggest factor at the facade.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaAnd we planed to put the wide windows at the north side where we expected a broad view of Osaka; you can see that from its 3rd and upper floor.Save this picture!first floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessKKL Luzern Acoustic Upgrade / WSDGArticlesAD Round Up: Refurbishment Part VIIArticles Share Projects House in Kitabatake / NRMSave this projectSaveHouse in Kitabatake / NRM 2010 Area: 170 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeNRM-Architects OfficeOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasOsaka-shiHouses3D ModelingJapanPublished on June 29, 2011Cite: “House in Kitabatake / NRM” 29 Jun 2011.

SSL is receiving the funds through MDA US Systems, a division of MDA managed by SSL, and is working with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), which is the prime contractor managing the program.The contract is for two complete robotic arm systems, which would be able to carefully capture and berth with satellites that were not previously designed for docking. The robotic arms would each have multiple joints enabling dexterous movement and could carry and use multiple generic and mission-specific tools. Building on contracts announced in both 2012 and 2013 for prior DARPA research into space robotics, the total contract value awarded now stands at over $40 million, and could grow further if all remaining options are exercised.“The ability to safely and cooperatively service satellites in GEO would expand public and private opportunities in space. It could enable entirely new spacecraft designs and operations, including on-orbit assembly and maintenance, which could lower construction and deployment costs while extending satellite utility, resilience and reliability,” said Al Tadros, vice president, Civil and DOD Business at SSL.The goal of the RSGS program is to cooperatively inspect, capture, reposition, repair, and upgrade GEO spacecraft. The DARPA-developed hardware and software toolkit, which includes the robotic arms, is planned to be integrated onto a commercially owned and operated servicing vehicle to provide on-demand servicing in space.“Our work with DARPA and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory leverages many years of experience with robotics applications in space,” said Steve Oldham, vice president, Strategic Business Development at SSL. “We are very pleased to participate in the RSGS flight demonstration program, which is expected to make on-orbit servicing a reality.”SSL has the ability to build on robotics technologies proven on the Space Shuttle, the International Space Station and the Mars lander and rovers. The company recently announced other missions with the U.S. government and is working with DARPA and NASA to develop robotic on-orbit satellite assembly. SSL is also the industry partner for a potential NASA Discovery Program mission to the asteroid Psyche and is participating in a first-phase study for a spacecraft bus for NASA’s Asteroid Redirect Mission.About SSLSSL, a subsidiary of MDA, is a leading provider of commercial satellites with broad expertise to support satellite operators and innovative space related missions. The company designs and manufactures spacecraft for services such as direct-to-home television, video content distribution, broadband internet, mobile communications, and Earth observation.
