Stock market crash: are these shares brilliant buys following recent price weakness?

first_img The long-term investment outlook for scores of UK-listed shares has worsened considerably following the Covid-19 breakout. The coronavirus has raised the risks to money printer De La Rue’s (LSE: DLAR) operations too. No wonder it’s also sunk during the recent stock market crash.Lockdown measures the world over have, of course, limited our opportunities to use cash. But even among those physical retailers that have remained open, consumers’ use of coins and notes has severely declined amid fears of cross-contamination.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…Cash demand is crashingData just released from ATM operator Link shows the extent of the drop off. It says cash withdrawals in the UK crashed 60% in the month to 27 April as shoppers rushed to contactless and digital payment methods instead. And it’s a pan-global phenomenon that some predict will run and run.Link, for example, says 51% of people it has spoken to say they will use payment cards more in future. UK Finance has previously predicted debit cards would account for half of all transactions by 2024. The Covid-19 crisis since then means these estimates will likely require significant changes.De La Rue’s shares are cheap, as illustrated by its forward earnings multiple of below 3 times. But this is a share whose long-term future is cloaked with too much risk. I’d rather invest my money elsewhere.Is office demand set to tank?Derwent London (LSE: DLN), on the other hand, isn’t a share that trades on rock-bottom P/E ratios. Following recent forecast downgrades, it actually trades on a reading of above 27 times for 2020. This reading is, in my opinion, hardly appropriate for a share which faces an uncertain future following the Covid-19 outbreak.Lockdown measures have already played havoc with this major provider of serviced office spaces in the UK capital. In early April, it said it had received less than three-quarters (73%) of rents for the March quarter. This is down from 98% in the same 2019 period. On top of this, Derwent London said it has ceased construction work on three sites and deferred spending and decisions on future building projects.Quarantine measures have been rolled back in major territories more recently, of course. But even if this continues, the property giant faces a revenues crash as a traumatic recession envelops the world economy.It’s likely the company’s profit expectations beyond the short-to-medium term will disappoint too. The lockdown measures have boosted the so-called work-from-home culture and raised employee expectations of such ‘perks’. It’s a phenomenon that many businesses all over the globe may be eager to embrace, not just to reduce costs, but to cushion themselves from the impact of another possible pandemic later down the line.Both Derwent London and De La Rue have sunk in value during the past three months. The former is down almost a third while the money producer has crashed around 60%. This recent weakness clearly doesn’t provide a decent dip-buying opportunity though. I’d happily invest my hard-earned cash elsewhere. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Since the beginning of 2020, interest rates available on savings accounts have plunged. Unfortunately, many UK shares have also slashed their dividend payouts to investors. However, there are still plenty of income options out there for investors on the market. With that in mind, I’m going to take a look at a handful of FTSE 100 shares with dividend yields of 5% or more. 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…UK shares to buy for incomeWhen looking for income in today’s market, investors need to be careful. Many FTSE 100 companies look attractive from an income perspective at first glance. Still, there’s no guarantee these companies can maintain their shareholder distributions in the current economic environment. As such, I reckon investors should concentrate on finding businesses with a high level of dividend cover. Strong balance sheets and large profit margins could also be a mark of a healthy dividend candidate, in my view. There are quite a few UK shares that meet these criteria. Car insurance giant Admiral has a robust balance sheet and some of the most attractive profit margins in the insurance industry. Its dividend cover is a bit hard to understand due to the way insurance profits are booked. Nevertheless, the business has an excellent track record of returning cash to investors. Although the company put its dividend on ice earlier in the year, it now supports a prospective dividend yield of 6%. Another FTSE 100 company with a dividend yield of more than 5% is British American Tobacco. Ethical considerations aside, as UK shares go, this tobacco group is an income champion.BATS generates billions of pounds in cash every year and has a strong balance sheet. It has consistently reported an operating profit margin of nearly 40%. The current dividend payout is covered 1.6 times by earnings per share. The stock supports a dividend yield of 7.7%. Cash cowsOther UK shares I think are worth considering for an income portfolio today include Plus500. This company doesn’t feature in the FTSE 100, but I think it’s worth considering nonetheless.The financial services group currently offers investors a dividend yield of just under 5%. The payout is covered 2.9 times by earnings per share. The company has been making so much money recently it has been using excess cash to repurchase stock.Another opportunity is mining giant BHP. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of around 6%, and the payout is covered 2.4 times by earnings per share.Governments around the world are planning massive infrastructure spending plans to help their economies recover from the coronavirus pandemic. This should lead to an improved outlook for BHP, which is one of the world’s largest producers of crucial commodities, such as copper and iron ore. Another financial services business on my list of UK shares to buy for income is insurance giant Aviva. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 9%. Although some analysts have been speculating that this distribution could be cut, even a 50% reduction would leave the stock offering a market-beating 4.5% yield.center_img Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 4th October, 2020 Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Around 4,000 jobs are at risk here, and a further 11,000 throughout the U.K. following Tata’s decision to divest of its U.K. operations Photo: Wikimedia[Anglican Communion News Service] Leaders from the churches and chapels in the Welsh town of Port Talbot have formed an ecumenical ministry team to support thousands of local workers who could lose their jobs following the announcement that the Indian steel company Tata, which owns the majority of the U.K.’s steel works, is looking to divest from its operations in the country.Tata made the announcement earlier this week, saying that the Tata Steel board “has advised the board of its European holding company – Tata Steel Europe – to explore all options for portfolio restructuring including the potential divestment of Tata Steel UK, in whole or in parts. Given the severity of the funding requirement in the foreseeable future, the Tata Steel Europe board will be advised to evaluate and implement the most feasible option in a time bound manner.”The decision to closed its operations in the U.K. follows a crisis in the steel industry internationally caused by a combination of a downturn in construction projects following the financial collapse of 2008 and an over-supply of steel in the international markets as a result of what analysts say is the availability of large amounts of Chinese steel being sold below the cost of production. Tata says despite giving its U.K. business “substantial financial support”, it has “suffered asset impairment of more than £2 billion in the last five years.”Britain’s nationalized steel industry was privatized in 1988 as British Steel PLC. Eleven years later it merged with the Dutch company Koninklijke Hoogovens to form Corus Group; which was brought by the Indian multinational company Tata Group in 2007.As a result of the decision, some 15,000 people are at risk of losing their jobs – 4,000 of them at the Port Talbot plant which is Britain’s biggest steel works. The Port Talbot site is reported to be losing £1 million a day. If the sites do close, job losses could be considerably higher as jobs in the supply chain are also at risk.“Local churches and chapels are supporting Tata workers through prayer and pastoral care and I am very pleased to have a ministry team on call to be with those workers feeling particularly stressed,” Tata’s chaplain, the Rev. Rick Hayes, said. “All the workers feel at risk at the moment and there is a lot of confusion and anxiety.”The Vicar of Port Talbot, the Rev. Mark Williams, whose father was a project engineer at the steel works for 40 years, said his message to the steel workers was quite simply: “We’re walking alongside you.”Williams added: “It’s too early to know yet what the best way for us to respond is and what practical help we can offer. However, we have just celebrated Easter, a time when we are reminded that there is hope in our despair. And as Jesus walked alongside followers on the road to Emmaus, so we are walking alongside the steelworkers, listening, praying and supporting them and offering them fresh hope.”He said that the atmosphere in the town was one of both resignation and frustration. “Everyone knows things are going to change, that the steelworks can’t stay as they are. There is frustration because we don’t know what’s going to happen next – and that’s very raw at the moment.”A ministry team of 16 leaders from the town’s churches and chapels are working alongside Tata’s chaplain to support people struggling with stress. They are offering debt advice through a Christians Against Poverty counselor and preparing food banks for anticipated extra demand.The church leaders have also organized a special prayer service for the town at the Ebenezer Chapel April 24.

One was killed and the other badly injured. IraqMiddle East – North Africa April 24, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 AP cameraman killed and a photographer wounded News December 28, 2020 Find out more Organisation February 15, 2021 Find out more to go further RSF_en Help by sharing this information News Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan Cameraman Saleh Ibrahim and photographer Mohammed Ibrahim, both Iraqi, came under fire from unidentified gunmen as they arrived on the scene of the explosion on 23 April near Al-Yarmook square, said an AP colleague who requested anonymity for security reasons.Both men were very badly injured and their colleague drove them to Al-Jumhuri Hospital in Mosul but Saleh Ibrahim, who had three bullets wounds to the chest, died shortly after being admitted. A doctor at the hospital, Rabei Yassin said that Mohammed Ibrahim, who had shrapnel wounds to the head, was treated there before being transferred to an undisclosed destination under US military escort.”We are appalled at the death of Saleh Ibrahim, which brings to 55 the number of journalists and media assistants killed in Iraq since the start of the war, in March 2003,” said Reporters Without Borders, adding, that it was “extremely worried about the condition of Mohammed Ibrahim.””We appeal to all belligerents to at last guarantee the safety of all journalists, who have the courage to cover this particularly bloody conflict, whatever their nationality and for whichever media they work”, the world wide press freedom organisation said. The exact circumstances of the engagement remain unclear. Deputy police chief in Mosul, Colonel Wathiq Ali said that the explosion, which also killed two Iraqi civilians, was aimed at the US forces. The journalists’ colleague said that US military were present in the area of the explosion and went to the journalists shortly after they had come under fire.Saleh Ibrahim was just 30 years old and was father of five children.AP President and CEO Tom Curley said in a statement, “Our deepest sympathy goes to his family”, promising a full investigation of the circumstances of the tragedy.

The index measures rent changes among single-family rental homes, including condominiums, using a repeat-rent analysis to measure the same rental properties over time. Increases in rents averaged 3% over the past year, which is more than double the rate of inflation over that same time period.By city, Phoenix had the highest year-over-year rent growth this January as it has since late 2018, with an increase of 6.4%, followed by Tucson (+5.2%) and Las Vegas (+4.9%). Honolulu had the lowest rent growth in January, increasing by 0.6% from the prior year. Orlando had the largest deceleration in rent growth in January, showing annual rent growth of 2.4 percentage points lower than in January 2019. Boston had the largest acceleration in rent growth in January, with rents increasing 2.2 percentage points faster than in January 2019.The index’s overall growth in January 2020 was propped up by low-end rentals, defined as properties with rents 75% or less of a region’s median rent. Rents on lower-priced rental homes increased 3.5% year over year and rents for higher-priced homes, defined as properties with rents more than 125% of the regional median rent, increased 2.6% year over year. Rents for lower-priced homes have been growing faster than for higher-priced homes since May 2014, though the difference in these two growth rates has narrowed over time.According to ATTOM Data Solutions, rental investment yield is down slightly. The annual gross rental yield (annual rent income divided by the average purchase price of single-family homes) is 8.4% for 2020, which is down slightly from the 8.6% average of 2019.“The business of buying single-family homes for rent has lost a little steam this year across the United States as rents aren’t rising quite as fast as prices for investment rental properties in a majority of the country,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer at ATTOM Data Solutions. “But from the national perspective, things are generally holding steady for landlords in the single-family home rental market. Also, profit trends are moving in favor of investors in higher-rent counties and against those in lower-rent regions.” Home / Daily Dose / SFR Growth Propped Up by Low End Rentals in Daily Dose, Featured, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Fed Official: More Monetary Policies Available Next: Trump Administration Mulls Mortgage Moratorium Plan The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Savelast_img read more

A Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamshery was presiding over a PIL filed by some law students, stating that for development in the city of Prayagraj and nearby areas, trees coming in the way of widening of road and development of area are being cut. The matter assumes significance in context of the recent remarks made by the Chief Justice of India SA Bobde in another case pertaining to the UP Government, that instead of felling trees in the name of development, roads should be designed to turn around the trees. “The only effect that is likely if the trees are retained would be roads which may not be straight and therefore capable of high-speed traffic. Such an effect may not necessarily be deleterious since high-speeds on highways are known to cause accidents”, the CJI contemplated. ‘Why Can’t Road Take A Turn Around A Tree?’ Asks CJI On Plea To Cut Trees For Road Development He also told the authorities to evaluate the value of trees by taking into account the amount of oxygen that the trees would have produced in their remaining life span. In the case at hand, the Petitioners had urged the Court to direct that the District Magistrate may not grant permission to cut the trees until preparation of a proper scheme. They sought that the trees coming in the way of such roads be replanted by applying the technique. Inter alia, they sought compliance of the Supreme Court’s directions in TN Godavarman Thirumulpad v. Union of India & Ors., (2013)11 SCC 466, for plantation of twice the number of trees, for every tree uprooted or cut. In December last year, the High Court had directed the Respondents to submit a detailed report of all the roads going from Prayagraj to other cities. “Whether it is National Highway or the State Highway to indicate as to how many plants/trees have been planted both side of the road or the plants on the divider because with the development, the compliance of the judgment is mandatory to maintain the ecology in the area,” the High Court had observed. When the matter was taken up on Tuesday, the Bench allowed some more time to the State Government and the NHAI to satisfy the Court about execution of the directions. The Government also assured the Court that no permission shall be granted to NHAI to execute any project in the State, until complete plan for plantation of trees, as per the norms applicable to compensate the trees which are to be unplanted, is submitted. The matter is now listed for hearing on February 3, 2021. Case Title: Ayush Kumar Srivastava & Ors. v. State of UP & Ors.
