And that weakness in the markets may have been a bit of a shock to people after the robust rally we’d been seeing off the coronavirus lows of the spring.And we can find several bearish voices warning of a second crash in the stock market. But analysts at JP Morgan are more optimistic. They see “plenty of upside for equities in the medium to long term.” And compounding such gains could help you become an ISA millionaire over time.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…Why I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 sharesI think JP Morgan may be right. We could argue that the fast bounce-back rally had been getting ahead of itself, particularly in US markets. But the fundamentals driving the rally remain in place. Indeed, we’ve been seeing fast economic recovery emerging because of the easing of lockdowns. The pandemic is largely being controlled (so far), and governments are throwing massive fiscal stimulus at the economic problem.In England, today’s the day non-essential shops can throw open their doors for their customers once again. Some people have been fretting that fear about the pandemic could keep customers away from shops. But I reckon there’s pent-up demand and sales will likely be brisk everywhere. Of course, social distancing measures will have some effect on how much of the demand stores can satisfy.But queues for drive-through takeaways have been huge since they reopened. And I’d have thought those fearful of catching a virus might have avoided fast food. But there isn’t much evidence people are avoiding takeaway food. So why would those people avoid using other shops? There are some parallels in the way supermarkets have been trading so well through the crisis. To me, it’s a natural extension to expect similar levels of business in non-essential shops.We could be seeing opportunityMeanwhile, we’ve seen a few scary numbers about how far GDP has plunged over the past couple of months in the UK. Indeed, the economy essentially stopped in the lockdown. Those numbers were always going to be big, but the recovery will likely be rapid as economic activity resumes. Meanwhile, the recent back-step in the stock market has blown off some of the speculative froth.We could be seeing a good opportunity to pick up shares in the cyclical sectors that stand to benefit from recovering revenues. For example, FTSE 100 retailers such as Next, Burberry and JD Sports Fashion.However, in a balanced long-term portfolio, I’d also consider defensive FTSE 100 names. For example, tobacco and smoking products company British American Tobacco has an attractive-looking valuation.  I’d also consider premium alcoholic drinks provider Diageo and pharmaceutical firm GlaxoSmithKline. And in the energy space, National Grid and SSE.Others could make decent long-term investments from here too, such as fast-moving consumer goods giant Unilever and cloud-based business software and service provider Sage.Overall, I’m much more likely to be a buyer of shares in the recent market pull-back than I am a seller.last_img read more

Looking for a rising passive income in retirement? I’d check out the Sainsbury’s share price

first_img Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The Sainsbury’s share price has looked to be past its sell-by date for years. It’s at least five years since I swept the UK’s second-biggest supermarket from my watchlist. Subsequent performance gives me little to regret. Incredibly, the stock trades 40% lower than it did 10 years ago.But this morning, J Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY) served up a healthy 8.2% rise in first-quarter sales, driven by pandemic stockpiling. Online sales doubled as housebound customers scrambled to book home delivery slots. 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…Sainsbury’s reported a £500m “profit impact” from Covid-19 overall, with clothing sales down 26.7% and fuel down 56.1%, and staff safety measures adding to costs. However, this was broadly offset by business rates relief and stronger grocery sales.The Sainsbury’s share price has dippedExcitement today centred around Argos. Sales rose 10.7% as locked-down Britons snapped up laptops, computer games, baking equipment and home office furniture. Former CEO Mike Coupe’s acquisition looks to be paying off.Yet after an early jump, the Sainsbury’s share price retreated and is down around 1.5% at time of writing. Investors clearly anticipated the jump in online grocery shopping. The challenge now is to hold on to its new shoppers, amid intense competition.At the start of 2018, Sainsbury’s market share stood at 16.2%, according to Kantar Worldpanel. It has since slid to 14.9%. The decline is inexorable, even if growth rates at discounters Aldi and Lidl are slowing. Margins are tight and Tesco‘s decision to price-match Aldi could up the pressure on Sainsbury’s.Investors would now like to see a bounce-back in general merchandise sales, as the lockdown is eased. This is still a strong start for new boss Simon Roberts, the worry now is that customers will feel squeezed if unemployment rises sharply after the furlough scheme ends.Roberts was being cautious today, warning of the positive impact recent sunny weather has had on sales at the FTSE 100 company, which may not last. The long-term impact of Covid-19 on sales and costs is impossible to predict, although underlying profit is expected to be the same as last year.The share price looks cheap, judged by conventional metrics. Right now, it trades at just 11.2 times forward earnings.Top FTSE 100 dividend stockThere is no dividend, remember. This was suspended in April, even though rival Tesco has stood by its payout. Interestingly, recent Sainsbury’s share price performance has been marginally better. It is up 7.5% in the last month while Tesco is down 2%. I suspect investors are indulging in a bit of profit-taking today, because these are good results.The dividend will return at some point. Right now, analysts are forecasting a yield of 4.8% in 2021, and 5.1% in 2022. That is the main reason to buy into the Sainsbury’s share price – for income. Share price growth has been non-existent for years.At today’s low value, right now could still prove a good entry point for long-sighted income seekers.There could be better options though.

Karen Gay said they were fine, they’d lost a few shingles, but had electricity, she was speaking of her church property, not Plaquemines Parish, the area south of New Orleans that encompasses the mouth of the Mississippi River, where many homes completely disappeared under the flood waters. This is a case where an exact quote out of context can be 100 percent misleading. Making a molehill out of a mountain discourages people from sending the kind of assistance that is urgently needed. Someone who knows South Louisiana and the results of many days’ rain should have proof-read this before publication. And what about Mississippi?! I understand this was a report from the Diocese of Louisiana, but are the people of the Diocese of Mississippi chopped liver?! A phone call to Bishop Gray’s office would have fleshed out the report.

Whole communities were under water and those people have lost everything. I don’t understand the newsworthiness of insurance adjusters being on the way for a few diocesan properties. Floods waters surround a cemetery in the Olde Towne area after Hurricane Isaac passed through Slidell, Louisiana Aug. 30. Isaac, downgraded to a tropical storm, has drenched southeastern Louisiana and Mississippi with heavy rainfall while a significant storm surge continued, the U.S National Hurricane Center said. Photo: REUTERS/Michael Spooneybarger[Episcopal News Service] Editor’s note on Sept. 3: Since this article was published, the situation in some parts of Louisiana has deteriorated due to continued rising water and ongoing power outages. ENS plans updated coverage as new information is verified by the impacted dioceses.Seven years after the catastrophic Hurricane Katrina, clergy in the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana were mostly thankful as they began to assess the impact of Hurricane Isaac while the remnants of the storm, as it moved north, continued to drench parts of the state and neighboring Mississippi.The worst reports from the diocese were of a tree falling onto a rectory and a church and church school taking in a couple of inches of water. Other reports mostly concerned power outages, shingles off roofs, minor water damage and glass breakage from high winds.Some parishioners’ homes had several inches of floodwater and “the usual debris” associated with heavy storms, according to diocesan clergy who reported their assessments on an Aug. 30 conference call.[At press time, no updates had been received from the Diocese of Mississippi.]Although the recently fortified levees that protect New Orleans stood firm during Isaac’s pummeling, beyond the city hundreds of homes were underwater. At one point, half of the state was without power. Of the 60,000 New Orleanians who evacuated, several thousand are staying at shelters.According to the Associated Press, Isaac dumped as much as 16 inches in some areas, and about 500 people had to be rescued by boat or high-water vehicles. At least five storm-related deaths have been reported.Moderating the Louisiana diocesan clergy conference call, the Rev. Canon Mark Stevenson, canon to the ordinary, said that an adjuster for church insurance was already in the New Orleans area to help facilitate damage claims.As the storm brought chilling reminders of the disastrous consequences of Hurricane Katrina exactly seven years ago, most of the clergy were relieved by the extent of Isaac’s impact throughout the diocese.The Very Rev. Ken Ritter, president and CEO of St. James Place Retirement Community in Baton Rouge South, said there was no significant damage. Some parishes may not have power “but we seem to have been largely spared,” he said.The Rev. Karen Gay, rector of Church of the Holy Communion in Plaquemine, an area impacted by significant floodwater, said: “We’re fine, we’ve lost a few shingles but we have power.”The rectory at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Bogalusa sustained some damage after a tree feel onto its roof, and the Very Rev. Canon Stephen Chad Jones reported that the Episcopal Day School at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Zachary, where he serves as rector, is ankle deep in water in several of the classrooms. He said they were planning to pump the water out.At Episcopal Church of the Annunciation in New Orleans, the roof developed a leak and the air conditioning unit fell off.St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in LaPlace took in several inches of water and three parishioners’ homes are flooded.The Rev. Ron Clingenpeel, priest-in-charge at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Thibodaux, reported that some of the shutters had blown off, and glass panes broken.Anticipating ongoing power outages, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in New Orleans was planning a function where everyone could cook any perishable food before it spoiled.Diocese of Louisiana Bishop Morris Thompson, along with 60,000 others, evacuated New Orleans before Isaac made landfall. He thanked his clergy “for paying attention to your folks. It is nice to be connected; thanks for your work.”Thompson hopes to return to New Orleans on Sunday. The diocesan offices in New Orleans will be closed until Tuesday.The Diocese of Louisiana has published an Isaac webpage that will be updated as new information becomes available.In the coming days, Episcopal Relief & Development will be standing ready to assist as diocesan teams are able to assess the situation.Episcopal Relief & Development has longstanding partnerships with the dioceses of Louisiana, Mississippi and the Central Gulf Coast that began with Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts in 2005. “For the past two years, all three dioceses have received disaster preparedness training and have continued to hone and exercise response strategies, including communications plans,” the agency said in a recent release. “Because of this preparation, the dioceses are positioned to effectively assess and respond to needs when weather conditions allow.”Meanwhile, the Episcopal Church’s National Altar Guild Association has prepared portable eucharistic kits to send to those who need them in the storm-impacted areas.The ninth named storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, Isaac developed on Aug. 21 in the Lesser Antilles. It first touched down as a tropical storm in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where it is responsible for at least 24 deaths. The storm then skimmed Southeast Florida and the Florida Keys before heading towards the Gulf Coast.In the Dominican Republic, more than 30,000 people have fled their homes due to flooding, and are now in need of basic supplies such as food, water and bedding, according to a plea from Bishop Julio Holguin.“Members of our congregations and students at our schools are collecting food and clothing to donate to those most affected by Isaac,” said Holguin. “May God bless all those who in one way or another are demonstrating their generosity towards these victims.”In Haiti, where Isaac caused extensive flooding in a number of areas, the Episcopal diocese has provided pre-positioned supplies of clean drinking water to 500 families in Léogâne, and will distribute potable water in up to five additional areas, according to Episcopal Relief & Development, which will provide additional support for emergency needs or recovery as the diocese completes its assessment. The World Health Organization reported new outbreaks of cholera in the in the aftermath of the storm.Donations for hurricane relief can be made via Episcopal Relief & Development’s website here.– Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Three buildings, designed to appear as a singular structure, share a monolithic facade constructed of a corrugated panel on Marcy Avenue, in Brooklyn, New York. The height of the unifying facade, rising to sixty feet, negotiates the surrounding structures; the elevated Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, adjacent brownstones, and the nearby industrial buildings of Williamsburg.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)The site is divided into three lots, each comprising a two-family residential dwelling, accessible by a shared entrance, and retail space with a dedicated entrance. Under the New York City building code, a multi-use structure affects tax benefits—regulations are less stringent for a two-family dwelling than for a multifamily dwelling unit. The rentable duplex units (1500 SF) contain four bedrooms en suite and target a young population interested in co-living scenarios. The apartments address rising demand in an area that currently lacks types that cater to a community that desires shared-living opportunities. Accessibility to fresh air and formal variety are achieved by way of common outdoor spaces designed for each unit, which takes the form of a terrace either at the rear second floor connected to the living room or on the roof for the top unit. The ten-foot ceiling height, coupled with floor-to-ceiling windows, amplify the already-generous spatial dimensions of the units.Save this picture!AxoThe corrugated facade references the site’s history as a garage and service station and recalls the neighborhood’s industrial past. The facade is articulated by two different types of corrugated panels—the rib dimension of one being double that of the other—and perforated panels that partially cover the window openings and are staggered on a per floor basis. These perforated panels conceal the mullions of the operable windows, and at the same time provide privacy while facilitating light infiltration and providing visual protection from the traffic of the nearby elevated roadway. During the day the facade appears opaque and the visible portion of the window maintains a proportional relationship with the more-typical windows of the neighboring townhouses. At night, the artificial interior light glows through the perforated facade revealing the full extent of the seven-by-eight-foot fenestration opening and imbuing the permeable facade with a more industrial appearance.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)The preexisting steel structure and perimeter block wall remaining from the original building are reinforced to define the ground floor retail volume and to support the three new residential floors above. The retail space is articulated with sixteen-foot ceilings and is designed as a flexible space that can be subdivided or unified to become a 4800 SF. At the rear ground level, the building is connected to a lot situated to the south of 26 Marcy Avenue and facing Hope Street, which runs perpendicular to Marcy. 69 Hope Street, Phase 2 of the residential-retail development employs the same design strategy, construction system, zoning calculations, and material pallet. Presently, the building associated with Phase 2 is under construction on the adjacent lot. Retail programming mediates between both residential buildings on the ground floor creating the illusion of an integrated structure.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)Designed as an ensemble, which condition is revealed by the similarly articulated facades of Phase 1 and 2 structures, the buildings embody the potentials that can be achieved by working strategically within the parameters of the often-complex New York City building codes.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)Project gallerySee allShow lessVallée du Parc Residence / Chevalier Morales ArchitectesSelected ProjectsA Restorative Rural Retreat for Sartfell / Foster LomasSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:20 Marcy Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

This meeting is focused on the Information and Democracy initiative launched by RSF, which recently gained support from the G7 countries. Based on an International Declaration adopted last November, this project aims to bring democratic safeguards in the global communication and information space and promote news trustworthiness.“The Republic of Korea endorses the International Declaration on Information and Democracy and wishes to join the Partnership for Information and Democracy, the intergovernmental coalition designed to implement the declaration,” said President Moon, who also praised RSF for their “continued efforts in improving press freedom throughout the world.”“We are delighted that our project received President Moon’s support and we hope that through this future cooperation South Korea will cement its place as a beacon of democracy and press freedom in Asia,” Deloire said.The delegation included RSF East-Asia Bureau’s Head Cédric Alviani and Development Manager Hsiang-yi Tang, the RSF South Korean correspondent Kim Hye-kyeong, the president of Journalists’ Association of Korea (JAK), Jung Kyu Sung and its director Kim Yongman. JAK, a partner of RSF, has more than 10,000 journalists from 187 media companies as members. During their visit to Seoul, the RSF delegation also met with Seoul National University’s Institute of Communication Research, Korea Press Foundation, and Korea Democracy Foundation, who were invited to join the Information and Democracy initiative.The initiative started as a commission of 25 prominent figures from 18 nationalities, including Nobel laureates Shirin Ebadi, Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz and Mario Vargas Llosa, who wrote an International Declaration establishing basic principles for the global information and communication space that is defined as a “common good of humankind.” The Declaration sets out democratic guarantees for the freedom, independence, pluralism and reliability of information at a time when the public space has been globalised, digitalised and destabilised.This Declaration was endorsed in November 2018 in a joint statement by the heads of state or government of 12 democratic countries and supported by the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres, UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay, and Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjørn Jagland. The initiative recently received the support of the G-7 members during the Biarritz Summit in France, and around 20 countries are expected to officially sign the Partnership during the United Nations’ General Assembly at the end of September.In July 2017, during a previous mission of RSF, President Moon’s administration pledged for South Korea to rank 30th in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index by 2022. South Korea has recently improved spectacularly in this index, from the 70th rank in 2016 to the 41st rank out of 180 countries and territories in 2019.

Overall employment in LEO supported companies in Limerick rose by 129 from 1766 in 2015 to a total of 1,895 i.e 1416 full time and 479 part time in 2016.The amount of grant aid provided to Limerick companies in 2016 was also up on the 12 months previous, with €851,094 in funding approved across 39 projects, up from €808,362 in 2015.Significantly also, LEO Limerick received €260,000 in 2016 in refundable grants from businesses it supported over previous years – 30% of funding for start-ups and 40% for business expansion schemes is refundable within three years.

We have been putting a lot of focus on encouraging businesses to grow and that had not been happening for a number of years as confidence was an issue. But that has changed and small businesses are now very much in expansion mode, which is a good thing. Business confidence has definitely improved.The start-up sector is also very encouraging.  Whereas during the recession a lot of people started businesses because they lost their jobs, now there is less reason for someone to start a business unless they really want to as there are more jobs available.  There are excellent supports for start-ups, including the likes of the New Frontiers programme at LIT and Nexus in UL.  But generally there’s a very strong sense of entrepreneurship now and it is generating confidence and positivity in the market.”Other key figures from 2016 include that 1,255 people in all attended Training and Development events organised by LEO, with the majority (58.5%) of attendees female.  Two Training and Development programmes – Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter – were completed, with 95 events ranging from training/seminars/clinics to networking events held.

The report features data and insights on consumer credit trends including mortgages, credit cards, auto loans, and personal loans.Serious mortgage delinquency rates continued to decline for the 19th consecutive quarter, the report said, and fell to 1.74 percent in Q1 2018 from 2.07 percent during the same quarter last year.Despite an overall drop in delinquencies, the hurricanes in the third quarter of 2017 “have driven an interesting dynamic related to the number accounts in forbearance, which are typically reported as current to credit reporting agencies regardless of their actual payment status,” the report noted. In areas like Houston, Miami, and Tampa only 1800 out of 2.36 million active mortgages were reported to be in some form of forbearance in the second quarter of 2017. “That number skyrocketed to 164,000 mortgages in some form of forbearance status by the end of Q1 2018,” the report revealed.“The opening quarter of 2018 was more of the same on the mortgage delinquency front. Borrowers continue to perform well, making on-time payments that are more in line with traditional patterns observed prior to the mortgage crisis,” said Joe Mellman, SVP and Mortgage Business Leader at TransUnion. “We will also monitor the forbearance population in areas affected by last year’s hurricanes to better understand that dynamic and its influence on the region’s mortgage market.”The report revealed that while balances rose in aggregate for the year, average new mortgage loan balances declined from $235,361 in Q1 2017 to $229,538 in Q1 2018 as a result of a deceleration in refinancing activity and a lower share of super prime loans. The shift in new origination mix, as a result, pushed subprime and near-prime originations to 16 percent in the last quarter of 2017 from 14.4 percent in the last quarter of 2016. TransUnion said that originations were viewed one quarter in arrears to account for reporting lag.“It is encouraging that balances continue to increase, as new purchase originations outpace paydowns. As time passes from the housing bubble and mortgage loan performance continues to remain exceptionally low, non-prime borrowers may begin to see their access to mortgage credit open up,” Mellman said. “However, it’s likely that mortgage lenders will approach the non-prime market cautiously, incorporating new alternative data sources to determine which non-prime borrowers offer the least risk.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: As Hurricane Season Approaches, 2017’s Disaster Impact Lingers Next: Finding Opportunity for Diversity Within Mortgage and Housing Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Interesting Trends in Forbearance Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agolast_img read more
