Stuart Blair | Tuesday, 12th May, 2020 | More on: BWY VTY Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Housebuilding stocks have been significantly affected due to the coronavirus pandemic. This has led to building sites being shut down, dividends being cut, and estate agents closed. Nevertheless, with the construction sector restarting over the past couple of weeks, I believe housebuilding stocks now look drastically underpriced. This is despite housing demand remaining strong and large numbers of first-time buyers searching for cheap options.Even so, with some estimates predicting a 37% fall in housing sales for this year, the housing sector is still on perilous ground. This means that not all housebuilding stocks will recover as fully as others. For this reason, it is important to be discerning when choosing the best housebuilders.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…I believe that these two FTSE 250 companies are in the best position for the recovery.A five-star housebuilding stockThe first FTSE 250 company that stands out is Bellway (LSE: BWY). Bellway is the fourth largest housebuilding stock in the UK and has consistently received excellent consumer satisfaction. In fact, over 90% of its customers state that they would recommend it to a friend. This has resulted in a strong order book of approximately c.£1.6 billion. Consequently, the housebuilder is in an excellent position once housing sales start to increase again.Bellway also has a flawless balance sheet, which includes more cash than debt. This will ensure that Bellway is in a strong position to deal with the impacts of coronavirus and will be able to spend cash where necessary.A housebuilder with significant insider buyingAnother FTSE 250 housebuilder that is especially appealing is Vistry Group (LSE: VTY). Vistry (previously Bovis Homes) has been the worst affected housebuilding stock over the past couple of months, with a c.45% year-to-date drop.Although this may be worrying, this underperformance may be due to the acquisition of Linden Homes for c.£1.1 billion just before the crisis. This has led to worries over Vistry’s liquidity. Nevertheless, this acquisition has established Vistry as a leading housebuilder and this should result in benefits in the near future.One particular aspect that attracts me to Vistry stock is the amount of insider buying. Since the start of March, nearly 100,000 Vistry shares have been bought by seven different insiders. As Peter Lynch has said, “insiders might sell their shares for any number of reasons, but they buy them for only one: they think the price will rise.” This insider buying is a strong sign of faith in the recent acquisition and the future of the company.The FTSE 250 housebuilder has also noted that traffic to its website has remained strong throughout the pandemic and this is “an indication of the continued underlying demand”. The recent £58 million deal to build 200 homes in Exeter is an example of the demand that still exists and how Vistry ought to profit from it.To conclude, I believe that these two cheap FTSE 250 housebuilding stocks offer excellent value and significant potential for the future. Whilst I can also see significant potential in other housebuilding stocks (such as Taylor Wimpey and Persimmon), I think that Bellway and Vistry are the two housebuilding stocks best placed for the recovery. 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.
Tamara Taylor taking on the Black Ferns’ defenceEngland Women secured back to back victories over New Zealand for the first time ever tonight (Tuesday) following a dominant 21-7 victory at Esher RFC.Following Saturday’s 10-0 win over New Zealand at Twickenham Stadium England followed up that win with a three try effort despite making 11 changes to the starting line-up.Wing Georgina Roberts, skipper Katy McLean and hooker Vicky Fleetwood touched down for tries, with McLean adding two penalties to hand last year’s Rugby World Cup finalists a resounding win. England next take on the Black Ferns in the final game of the series on Saturday at Esher RFC, kick off 2pm.England Head Coach Gary Street said: “I am so proud of the performances the players have put in, but also really glad that I had faith in the whole squad to make 11 changes for tonight’s game as it proved justified. It wasn’t just about getting the points tonight that was important but it was the attitude and the strength the players showed. They didn’t panic when I made the changes to the starting line-up, instead they showed real character.“The backrow was superb tonight. With three young players starting, they were outstanding. Alexandra Matthews in particular was a revelation playing as an 18 year old against the world champions.” Added Street. “I have promised the players I will pick the best available side for Saturday’s game but selection will not be easy given the performances of all 26 players in the squad but I am already looking forward to the final game on Saturday already.”Despite only playing an international test match three days ago England got off to a blistering start. Some great pressure from the kick off saw England drive forward and put the Black Ferns under immediate pressure. Lock Tamara Taylor made a good break but in the end a penalty came their way and fly-half McLean stroked it over with ease, taking a 3-0 lead after just two minutes.The momentum continued for England with wing Georgina Roberts scoring the first try of the evening on just nine minutes. Again more pressure from England saw New Zealand under the cosh and the loose ball saw England pick up with centre Kim Oliver executing a superb long range pass to set-up Rachael Burford, who had the legs to power through the Black Ferns defence and set-up Roberts on the right wing. McLean couldn’t make the conversion but England still led 8-0.The world champions hit back though and were certainly showing more fizz and creativity than in the first encounter of this series. A New Zealand scrum saw the ball go loose but scrum half Kendra Cocksedge recovered well to pick up and make a break. Flanker Justine Lavea then finished off the move with a powerful blast over England’s try line. Kelly Brazier added the conversion to reduce the deficit to 8-7.The remainder of the half went all England’s way though with a series of scrums in New Zealand’s 22. McLean came close to scoring with a nice chip ahead but couldn’t ground it, while No.8 Matthews also pounded New Zealand’s defence on a number of occasions. Another fine attacking move involving Becky Essex and the impressive Natasha Hunt saw England close but in the end the pressure did turn into points for England with McLean converting a penalty while New Zealand lost Vita Robinson to the sin bin.After the break the tempo of the game remained relentless. New Zealand put England under pressure early on but England made the turnover and instead the visitors were left chasing their rivals after Michaela Staniford made a good break. Hannah Gallagher made some more yards for England before the ball went out-wide to Kat Merchant and then Kay Wilson who came close but was unable to score.47 minutes in and Mclean added England’s second try. Again following a series of scrums in New Zealand’s 22, England made the most of their chances and scrum half Hunt recycled the ball out to McLean who found a gap to break through and score. She couldn’t make the conversion, and even with England losing Kim Oliver to the sin bin, her side made an even bigger dent on the scoreboard.This time it was the turn of replacement hooker Vicky Fleetwood to take the honours. An England line-out saw Fleetwood throw in well for her teammate to bounce the ball straight back at her and she then show lightning pace and power to blast through New Zealand’s defence and score after 68 minutes. The score proved decisive with New Zealand, even though they fought to the very end, unable to claw their way back into the game.

Each of the openings faces the interior at the 45 degree angles. Those openings, along with the fixed furniture and the kitchen booth, creates a variety of spaces within a single volume.

Governor Sue Ellspermann, and Indiana Farm Service Agency Executive Director Julia A. Wickard in a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack in late July. The request came after Indiana farmers suffered significant crop damage and losses caused by flooding and excessive rain since May 1 of this year.“Farms in counties all across the state have suffered because of the excessive rainfall we’ve experienced during our spring and summer months this year,” said Governor Pence. “I’m thankful to the Indiana Farm Service Agency and the United States Department of Agriculture for recognizing the need for assistance for our Hoosier farmers, and I hope that those affected will apply for the loans they need.”Lt. Governor and Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development Sue Ellspermann added, “I am grateful that the USDA has approved our request for a disaster declaration for the 53 Indiana counties most severely impacted by heavy rains this summer. The loans now available to Hoosier farmers will help lessen the financial impact of reduced production from flooded and rain drenched fields. The Indiana State Department of Agriculture will continue to support farmers in the impacted areas. As we join the State Fair in observing the ‘year of the farmer,” we especially note how resilient they are in the face of many challenges. They will recover from this difficult year ready to plant and harvest again in 2016.”Wickard explained exactly what the declaration means for Indiana Farmers.Wickard on Indiana assistance“If a producer is in a position where they cannot obtain traditional credit from a farm lender they can come into our office and our current interest rate for August is 3.625% which is lower than traditional lenders,” she told HAT. “They can make application with our offices and we can work very expeditiously to try to get them the loans they need to offset those costs that they would have locally, input costs that they’ve experienced this past year, repair of any damage that they might have. So it’s assistance available from the federal government as part of the 2014 farm bill.”USDA also designated 87 counties in Illinois as primary natural disaster areas due to damages and losses caused by excessive rain and flooding.Under the secretarial disaster declaration, low-interest emergency loans are available to all producers suffering losses in the 53 counties for which the secretarial disaster declaration has been approved, as well as in affected contiguous counties. A full list of counties where producers can request aid can be found attached.Farmers interested in applying for loans can visit https://offices.sc.egov.usda.gov/locator/app?state=in&agency=fsa and contact their local FSA offices for application details.

RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific December 29, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 No flowers for Liu Xiaobo on his birthday Help by sharing this information ChinaAsia – Pacific News News The authorities in the Liaoning (辽宁) provincial prison where Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo (刘哓波) is serving an 11-year jail sentence refused to give him the flowers that Reporters Without Borders sent him for his 55th birthday yesterday.Liu celebrated his birthday in prison again. The lack of clemency for China’s most famous prisoner of conscience is being accompanied by very harsh and illegal restrictions on his wife, Liu Xia (刘霞), and his supporters.Liu Xiaobo has spent six birthdays in prison since 1989. China’s insistence on treating him as a dangerous criminal is sullying its international reputation. It is vital that he should be freed before President Hu Jintao’s visit to the United States next month. His release would be hailed in China and abroad. The Chinese government has everything to lose by continuing to criminalize the activities of Liu and his supporters and treat the award of the Nobel Peace Prize as a “conspiracy against China.”We hope that Liu will be able to celebrate his 56th anniversary with his family. Meanwhile, we call on the authorities to allow his wife, who is under house arrest in Beijing, his brothers and his lawyers to visit him.We urge Internet users to send birthday greetings and messages of encouragement to Liu.

Home / Daily Dose / Liquidity’s Impact on Default Rates Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: default HOUSING Liquidity Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport. A graduate of Harding University, he has covered numerous topics across the real estate and default servicing industries. Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Having just three mortgage payments worth of liquidity can be enough to reduce the likelihood of foreclosure, according to research from JPMorgan Chase. Research from the JPMorgan Chase Institute indicates that cash in the bank is more important in preventing default than the size of the down payment.Homeowners having this money in savings is also more important than the amount of home equity, the income level of the homeowners, or the size of the mortgage payment in relation to household income to prevent default. Regardless of income level or payment burden, homeowners with fewer than three mortgage payment equivalents of liquidity defaulted at higher rates.Borrowers with less than one month of mortgage payment equivalents (MPE) defaulted at a rate of 1.8%, over five times higher than borrowers with between three and four MPEs of liquidity (0.3%). However, at higher liquidity levels, the relationship between post-closing liquidity and default rates was nearly flat: borrowers with between four and ten MPEs of liquidity had default rates between 0.2% and 0.3%.Homeowners with little in post-closing liquidity made up a “disproportionately high share of defaults,” Chase notes. Homeowners with less than one MPE made up 20% of the study’s sample size, but made up 54% of defaults.Additionally, Chase found that homeowners with a higher DTI also had a less liquidity. “ Thesefindings suggest that any relationship between lower total DTI at origination and lower default rates may be more closely associated with lower DTI households maintaining greater liquidity over the life of their mortgage,” Chase noted.Equity seems to have little impact on default. Chase found that borrowers with little liquidity but more equity defaulted at considerably higher rates than borrowers with more liquidity but less equity.“Conventional wisdom argues that larger down payments, and therefore lower loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, lead to lower default rates and smaller losses given default,” Chase states. “However, if the borrower is left with little-to-no liquidity after making a larger down payment, does conventional wisdom regarding lower default rates still apply?”Instead, lower down payments mean more post-closing liquidity, lowering the risk of default.
