Anna Sokolidou | Wednesday, 8th July, 2020 | More on: BA TSCO Many analysts think July has marked the worst earnings season since the 2008–09 global financial crisis.Finding best stocks to buy now might seem like a tough task.Stock indexes around the world have rallied since the end of March. At the same time, corporate earnings declined in the first quarter of 2020. Many experts argue that the second quarter was even worse for the companies’ profits. And there are plenty of macroeconomic and political risks to boot. In fact, some of my Foolish colleagues and I think that there will even be another stock market crash pretty soon.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…But that doesn’t mean investors should panic. You might even want to think of another market crash and the earnings season as opportunities to buy more shares. Choosing ‘good’ companies can really help you achieve your financial goals. Here are some of my favourite stocks to buy now. Best retail stocks to buyThe best retail stock to buy now must be Tesco (LSE:TSCO). It is the industry’s clear leader. On 26 June, it reported a wonderful sales rise, which totalled about 8% for the group. This was mainly due to an increase in online shopping. Tesco’s customers bought plenty of groceries and other essentials. Unfortunately, they also cut spending on non-essentials such as clothing items. The results clearly show Tesco’s ability to adapt to challenging situations and rising competition from online supermarkets. At the same time, the sales boost comes at significant costs. That’s simply because Tesco had to employ some temporary staff to meet the high demand and implement social distancing measures.But management expects Tesco to report roughly the same profit as it did in 2019. This means the growth rate will not be brilliant this year. But remember that Tesco will be one of the few companies to actually avoid a significant profit drop in 2020.It all comes at a dividend yield of about 4%. Finally, don’t forget that Tesco is a stable business. In fact, some traders say: “No-one ever went bust buying Tesco“. The publishing of good results didn’t lead to any share price boost. In fact, Tesco’s stock is near its 52-week lows. BAE Systems during this earnings seasonThe best or safest stocks to buy, in my opinion, are issued by defence companies. Why is that? Well, governments tend to be these companies’ main customers and rarely go bankrupt. And the demand for defence equipment doesn’t tend to be very cyclical. That is, it doesn’t depend on economic growth. So, even now BAE Systems (LSE:BA) has many things to do.The company will announce its earnings results on 30 July. Of course, no one expects a significant profit rise and some people think the company might not pay a dividend this year. But the share price fully reflects this.Some time ago, BAE announced acquisitions of two companies – the Collins Aerospace Military Global Positioning System and Raytheon’s Airborne Tactical Radios businesses. This came at some leverage but Moody’s expects the company to reduce its debt level in 12 to 18 months time. So, it looks like the worst is almost behind for BAE.My stock picks are defensive. They will let you build a recession-proof portfolio but don’t just limit yourself to these two. FTSE 100 offers many other great companies that will help you survive the 2020 recession.

Among many other things, the Neugebauer House, which was completed in 1998, stands as a prime example of an architects ability to creatively design within the city codes and regulations while still maintaining the quality and style found in their other buidings.Save this picture!Courtesy of richard meier & partners architects ©scott frances estoAs a prominent twentieth century architect who fuses main principles of design from his peers and fellow architects with his own, Richard Meier is known for his endless variations of a rather specific theme of white Neo-Corbusian form, mostly using enameled panels and glass. The emphasis on light, color, place, plain geometry and the interaction between all of the latter help Richard Meier & Partners Architects to design architecture that is clear, comprehensible, and easily admirable.Save this picture!West Elevation, Courtesy of Richard Meier & Partners ArchitectsSituated in a prestigious residential community on a one-and-a-half acre waterfront site, this house faces southwest over Doubloon Bay. One approaches the wedge-shaped site, which fans out towards the water, from a winding avenue lined with royal palm trees. In forecourt of the house a square grove of twenty-five palms serves as foil to a freestanding cylindrical garage faced in limestone.Save this picture!Courtesy of richard meier & partners architects ©scott frances estoSince the turfed area of the forecourt is reinforced, pedestrians and cars are free to circulate across the greensward at will. Beyond, concealing the water, lies the horizontal facade of the house itself, clad in two by three foot limestone slabs backed by a concrete frame and masonry structure. Pierced at regular intervals by vertical slot windows, the facade conceals a wide, top-lit access corridor running the length of the house.Save this picture!Section at Bedroom, Courtesy of Richard Meier & Partners ArchitectsThe linear organization consists of five parallel layers from front to back: access, service, living, sun terrace, and lap pool. A raised main entry penetrates the limestone wall of the front facade to give onto the corridor. A fifteen-foot module controls the structural bay and the incremental dimensions of all the cellular spaces. The main volumes, including both sleeping and living spaces, are arranged in a linear formation, affording each room an impressive view over the lap pool to the bay beyond.Save this picture!Courtesy of richard meier & partners architects ©scott frances estoThe principal rooms and their attendant bathing, dressing. and (in one stance) cooking facilities are covered by a steel-frame butterfly roof cantilevered off paired steel stanchions at 15-foot centers. This roof, finished with a stone-paneled rain screen, satisfies the community requirement for a pitched roof while reinforcing the house’s orientation toward the water.Save this picture!Axonometric, Courtesy of Richard Meier & Partners ArchitectsThis giant canopy/roof running is augmented by clerestory louvers made up of one-inch diameter horizontal aluminum tubes plus a ceramic frit superimposed on the zenithal glazing of the main corridor.

The Southern Hemisphere westerly winds (SHW) play an important role in regulating the capacity of the Southern Ocean carbon sink. They modulate upwelling of carbon-rich deep water and, with sea ice, determine the ocean surface area available for air–sea gas exchange. Some models indicate that the current strengthening and poleward shift of these winds will weaken the carbon sink. If correct, centennial- to millennial-scale reconstructions of the SHW intensity should be linked with past changes in atmospheric CO2, temperature and sea ice. Here we present a 12,300-year reconstruction of wind strength based on three independent proxies that track inputs of sea-salt aerosols and minerogenic particles accumulating in lake sediments on sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island. Between about 12.1 thousand years ago (ka) and 11.2 ka, and since about 7 ka, the wind intensities were above their long-term mean and corresponded with increasing atmospheric CO2. Conversely, from about 11.2 to 7.2 ka, the wind intensities were below their long-term mean and corresponded with decreasing atmospheric CO2. These observations are consistent with model inferences of enhanced SHW contributing to the long-term outgassing of CO2 from the Southern Ocean.
