Aston Martin Lagonda (LSE: AML) is a classic example in this regard. Despite the Aston Martin share price falling around 90% from the IPO price in 2018, there’s a strong attachment to buying and holding the stock. You can put this down to the beauty of the cars made, or the lifestyle that the brand symbolises. But with a looming second stock market crash, what’s the best plan?A potential second stock market crash?There are two elements that we want to look at. The first one is the possibility of a second stock market crash. This is important, because it has a causal relationship with the Aston Martin share price. For example, the recent rally in stock markets since the March drop has seen 93 out of 100 stocks in the FTSE 100 register gains. So it’s logical to think that Aston (along with many others) would get caught up in a fall if the overall market turned sour.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 argument for a looming crash is based on the disconnect between the rallying stock market and the poor economic data. Take the UK GDP reading for April. Year on year, the figure fell by 20.4%! Also, the claimant unemployment rate has doubled in just two months (from 3.5% to 7.8%). These are worrying signs for the economy, yet the FTSE 100 has been rallying higher and higher. At some point something has got to give.What happens then to the Aston Martin share price?Past performance does not always indicate future returns, but it does give us an indication of what could happen. During the first stock market crash, the FTSE 100 index fell around 32%. In comparison, the Aston Martin share price fell around 60%. So from this we can say that the share price has a high beta. The beta of a stock measures the sensitivity of the movement in the share price in comparison to the broader market. A beta of 1 means the stock moves exactly as the market does.From the above, we could conclude that a second stock market crash would likely see the share price for Aston fall more than the index average. This would make sense, given that the firm manufactures expensive luxury cars. If the crash coincides with the UK entering a recession, then the demand for such cars should fall heavily. When you add into the picture Aston’s net debt of around £875m, trying to service such debt during a downturn will be particularly hard.Don’t get me wrong, I do think that the Aston share price will reach a point where it’ll become a screaming buy for investors. But given that the odds look like we could have a second drop, Aston’s high beta is worrying. This should see the share price fall by more than the market average. So while the stock looks cheap at 71p, I’d be patient and wait to buy at lower levels in the future. In the meantime, here are two stocks I think could rally despite a potential market crash.

The main target regarding the LAP residential complex is not only to provide a luxury compound of modern villas with all the full residential services, allowing a sophisticate and environmental way to live in the growing town in a peaceful, tranquil and familiar way. The main issue that substantially stays back the idea of this plan is the reinterpretation of the African identity, reinventing the local and the continental roots in a contemporary elegant style.Save this picture!ElevationThe challenge is to demonstrate to the world that also here it is possible to bland and take away the best from the synthesis between invention and tradition, luxury and ecology, globalization and local culture, enjoy life style and respect for human dignity.Save this picture!© Peia AssociatiUsually the residential compounds are made by a urban grid where the streets and the anonymous and wall fencings of any single plots define the external urban imagine giving a sense of enclosure and protection of the private properties. In this country we cannot avoid this protection requirement. So we invert the target trying to develop a new image for the “walls” taking from the north African and the desert towns the inspiration for this. Place like Gath and Gadamesh in Libya, the oasis town in Marocco drive us to the concept of the urban fabric made by walls.Save this picture!ElevationsThe wall itself creates the collective image of the architecture, inside the villas take their proper, private identity. We have look for a linked solution to match this private and public world. The wall follow the streets and boulevards or we can say that the streets are made by the continuous wall that adapt it self to the presence of the Houses, hosting just the opening and some abstract images of “towers” that underline the entrance door. If the wall shape is instable and not linear the brass and cedar wood doors and gates, the red and ocra colour of the wall itself and some applied ceramic tiles or small opening, as random fragments are the only decorative system clearly related to the mood tradition.Save this picture!© Peia AssociatiProject gallerySee allShow lessME House / Otta Albernaz ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsDesigning Invisible Architecture: Bird Hides by BiotopeArticlesProject locationAddress:Cotonou, BeninLocation to be used only as a reference.

The clients of The Sanctuary, recent empty-nesters planning ahead to retirement, hoped to downsize and simplify in the design of their new Palo Alto home. When the clients purchased the property, an old wooden fence across the front yard and the original house closed off the site from the street. Behind this rough and aged presentation, however, was an urban refuge of lush vegetation throughout the deep lot. This sense of discovery served as the original inspiration for the design of the house and directed both architect and client to its culmination. Save this picture!© Joe FletcherThe proximity of the downtown Palo Alto area by foot and bike was fundamental to the clients’ decision to purchase this lot, and their belief in the building to a higher density in an urban setting leads to the inclusion of a second-story apartment. The couple fell in love with the overgrown garden and its obvious potential, approaching Ground Studio to help them enhance the landscape; retaining scenes of serenity and surprise while creating more of a cohesive and modern feel. Through their collaboration with the landscape team, the clients connected with Feldman Architecture, bringing with them a desire to design a long-lasting modern house that fit comfortably into the surrounding neighborhood while featuring its unique and charming landscape.

After passing under its branches, guests are lead through a series of courtyards and view gardens that weave through the undulating footprint of the building. Each interior space is paired with its own landscape moment, allowing the architecture and landscape to flow into each other.

The floor plate projects beyond the building envelope and dissolves into balconies to blur the sense of indoor/outdoor while at the same time lifting the building up from the ground. Even the driveway is constructed out of floating concrete structural slabs supported on piers to minimize the impact on the heritage oak tree. By expanding the living area to spill into the outdoor spaces, our teams provided ample room for the clients to entertain their ever-expanding family.

Free flowing communal zones are combined with a range of separable private spaces and configured to allow occupants to either engage or retreat as they need. Expansive full height glazing brings natural light into the interior and extends views out to a landscaped garden. The building is externally clad almost entirely in a single material to emphasise its form and remind us that simplicity can be dramatic and beautiful at the same time.Save this picture!© Michael Kai PhotographySave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Michael Kai PhotographyOur design approach was based on our client’s desire for a simple, practical and elegant beach house for themselves and their extended family. Set on a relatively compact site, a key design focus of this project is to create relaxed and open communal spaces that are contrasted by a range of private spaces that allow occupants to retreat from the noise and chaos that comes with families holidaying together.

iStock(NEW YORK) — Harvey Weinstein wants a new judge.Defense lawyers for the embattled movie producer filed a motion in New York on Wednesday asking the judge to recuse himself from the case for threatening a day earlier to revoke the defendant’s bail with “comments [that] were so inflammatory, biased and prejudicial that they have virtually gone viral.”The request came after a visibly exasperated Manhattan Supreme Court Judge James Burke had laid into Weinstein on Tuesday after observing him using a cellphone in court despite repeated warnings at previous hearings that it was prohibited in his courtroom.“Is this really the way that you want to end up in jail for the rest of your life, by texting and violating a court order?” Manhattan Supreme Court Judge James Burke asked Weinstein from the bench Tuesday.Burke went on to suggest that the defendant was incapable of holding a cellphone without using it.“Before you ever even come into the courthouse, let alone the courtroom, take his cellphone,” Burke told defense attorneys. “Because he’s not going to be able to not use it. He did turn over two cellphones to somebody and then he had two more. It’s been an issue every single court date.”In a letter to the judge, which Burke has yet to rule on, defense attorneys also cited a number of other factors in seeking his recusal from the case.They cited Burke’s refusal on Tuesday to adjourn the New York case for a “cooling off period” after felony sex crimes charges were filed against Weinstein in California the previous day, his decision not to allow a change of venue to another jurisdiction, and his refusal to allow Weinstein’s jury consultant to sit at the defense table during jury selection.Weinstein Defense Letter Se… by ChrisFrancescani on Scribd“For these reasons, it has become clear to Mr. Weinstein that the Court has already violated its own mandate to the potential jurors by deciding that Mr. Weinstein is guilty before it has heard any of the trial evidence,” the letter notes.Events in the Weinstein saga have moved swiftly this week.Late Monday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced the filing of four new felony counts of sexual assault against Weinstein involving two different women he allegedly attacked over a two-day period in California in 2013.On Tuesday, defense attorney Arthur Aidala held aloft New York newspaper covers in court featuring reports of the new charges and implored Burke to adjourn the trial for a “cooling off period.”“For a prosecutor, this is Christmas morning,” Aidala argued. “How much better could you get than that on the morning of jury selection to have him smeared everywhere.”“It’s 18 or 19 hours since the L.A. press conference,” Aidala contended. “I don’t think anyone can answer the court honestly that they can be fair and unprejudiced.”Lead prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon cited the new charges in Los Angeles on Tuesday to argue that Weinstein’s bail should be revoked to ensure he returns to court to face trial in New York. Burke denied her request.Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance’s office declined a request for comment on the defense motion asking Burke to recuse himself.Weinstein is facing five felony sexual assault charges in New York stemming from alleged attacks against two women — one in 2006 and one in 2013. If convicted on the top charges, he could go to prison for life.Meanwhile, the jury selection process in New York continued on Wednesday to move slowly.Prospective jurors are being questioned in blocks of 120 at a time. On both Tuesday and Wednesday, more than one-quarter of each group was dismissed swiftly after telling the judge that they could not be fair and impartial in Weinstein’s case.
