Is another stock market crash on the horizon? As the pandemic shows no signs of receding, market pressure continues to build. In October, global equities suffered their worst period since March. But this need not be taken as a signal to sell. Far from it. A market crash presents a buying opportunity and a FTSE 100 ripe for the picking.The FTSE 100 follows the S&P 500I think it’s worth keeping an eye on the S&P 500 index in America. That’s because where it goes, the UK’s FTSE indices often follow. With the chaos of the US presidential election causing market volatility across the pond, this could potentially have a knock-on effect over here.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…Now that Joe Biden has been named the next President, many believe he will raise taxes and increase corporate regulation. This could increase the likelihood of a market crash, but with so many factors at play, anything could happen. Much hinges on the next wave of government stimulus. There’s still over two months until they swear in the new President, so I expect market volatility to continue until then.Profits bloom from market crash gloomAs far as the UK is concerned, Brexit is still looming. The pandemic is raging on and England has begun its second lockdown. None of this is good news for UK financial markets. Last week’s UK stimulus announcement was welcomed, and Pfizer‘s vaccine news gave markets a temporary boost, but until Covid-19 is eradicated, economic uncertainty remains. Bad news in the markets can mean a buying opportunity for savvy investors. I like to maintain a wish list of stocks to buy during a market crash. These are quality stocks that offer resilience and growth potential. They are often overpriced in a bull run, but a market crash re-rates them to an appealing price point.While this may seem risky, it’s a common move among successful long-term stock pickers. Billionaires, such as Warren Buffett and his colleague Charlie Munger, both advocate value investing. This means picking up quality shares with a competitive edge, when the price is undervalued. A market crash provides this opportunity. Buy and hold is the name of the game. I think this means buying stocks with a view to holding them for a minimum of five years, preferably 10 years or even longer.Timing the marketGetting in on a market low and snapping up the best buys is not as easy as it sounds. Unless you’re a day trader glued to a screen, timing a market crash can be difficult. Having the stock list ready is one thing. But cash in the bank, set to deploy, is not always possible. That’s why I think recurring investments are a great strategy for long-term investing. Investing on a monthly basis allows me to benefit from tumbling stock prices in the short term.Hargreaves Lansdown offers low fees for recurring investments, meaning I can buy small amounts of stock regularly, benefiting from a margin of safety and improved capital appreciation potential in the long run.Assuming an annual return of 8%, a £100 investment monthly could transform into £215,000 over 35 years. This shows the power of regular investing. Whispers of ISA millionaires may sound too good to be true, but for those who can afford to invest more or wait longer, it’s not an impossibility.

Youth occupy Florida governor’s office to demand Trayvon Martin Act

first_imgDream Defenders take over Gov. Rick Scott’s office in Tallahassee, Fla.July 22 — The reaction to the July 13 “not-guilty” verdict for racist vigilante, George Zimmerman — who fatally shot unarmed 17-year-old, Trayvon Martin, last year in Sanford, Fla. — continues to evoke various kinds of protests all over the U.S., including in Florida.One of the most dynamic protests there is entering its second week at the state Capitol in Tallahassee.  On July 16, the Dream Defenders — activists who are mainly African-American, Latino/a and some white youth — took over Gov. Rick Scott’s office in a sit-in and have not left.Their main slogans are “The State is Ours!” and “3/5 No More!” — which pertains to the Dred Scott decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1857 that declared enslaved Africans less than human.The activists are demanding that the governor call a special legislative session to repeal the Stand Your Ground law, which Zimmerman initially used as an “excuse” to kill Martin, whom he claimed look “suspicious.” The Sanford police did not arrest Zimmerman until massive protests prompted his arrest six weeks after the atrocity took place.This state law, in general, says that anyone who feels “threatened” by someone has the right to use deadly force to defend herself or himself.  In reality, this law has been used to criminalize mainly people of color, such as Martin and Jordan Davis, another 17-year-old unarmed Black youth shot to death by Michael Dunn, a white man, on Nov. 23, 2012.What was Davis’ so-called crime?  Dunn claimed that Davis and his friends were playing their music too loud next to his car.  Dunn goes to trial on murder charges in Jacksonville, Fla., in September.And then there is the case of Marissa Alexander, a young African-American single mother of three children, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing warning shots against her abusive ex-spouse.  The same Florida state attorney, Angela Corey, who led the prosecution team in the Zimmerman case, prosecuted Alexander for standing her ground, which led to her unjust conviction.  Alexander had the right to defend herself and her children from a real threat.‘Converge on Florida’s Capitol’It took Gov. Scott two days to meet with the Dream Defenders — where he’d have to listen to their demands and concerns.  In the end, Scott reiterated his support for Stand Your Ground.  He then stated that he would not call a special legislative session.  The Defenders’ response was that the sit-in would continue indefinitely.The Defenders are demanding the passage of a Trayvon Martin Act to outlaw racial profiling, the Stand Your Ground law and the school-to-prison pipeline policies.Since the sit-in began, it has more than doubled in size.  In a July 18 press release, Defenders’ field director, Curtis Hierro, stated, “Rick Scott has awoken a sleeping giant.  We are going to work.  Dream Defenders call for people around the nation to converge at Florida’s Capitol to join us as we stand our ground for Trayvon.”The Dream Defenders are organizing a petition campaign to gather more than 50,000 signatures in support of the Trayvon Martin Act.  Supporters from around the U.S. are planning to converge in Tallahassee in solidarity with the sit-in throughout the coming week.  Go to their “Take Over Tuesday” website at tinyurl.com/lxowt9t or @Dreamdefenders at Twitter for more information.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Defence witnesses and journalists held in hotel while blogger’s trial takes place

first_img News August 13, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Defence witnesses and journalists held in hotel while blogger’s trial takes place Receive email alerts China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison to go further March 12, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific center_img ChinaAsia – Pacific News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders deplores the behaviour of the authorities on the first day of blogger Tan Zuoren’s trial yesterday in Chengdu (in the southwestern province of Sichuan), preventing two Hong Kong journalists, Wong Ka-yu and Wu Siu-wing and would-be defence witnesses, who included leading dissident artist and blogger Ai Weiwei, from getting to the courtroom.Held since 28 March, 55-year-old Tan faces a possible five-year sentence on subversion charges for criticising the government online, especially in connection the 12 May 2008 earthquake in Sichuan. “The charges against Tan are baseless and the trial is meaningless after the police intervened to prevent him defending himself”, Reporters Without Borders said. “This is not due process. It is a parody of justice. We are also shocked that two journalists from Hong Kong-based NOW TV were held in their hotel room for seven hours.”Joint writer of the 64Tianwang blog with fellow dissident Huang Qi (who is also detained), Tan often tried to draw attention to the 4 June 1989 crackdown on the pro-democracy student moment and organised a blood donation campaign in Chengdu on last year’s anniversary of the crackdown, three weeks after the deadly earthquake.Supported and relayed by artist and designer Ai Weiwei, Tan’s blog entries also tried to establish the number of children who were killed in the earthquake, especially in schools that collapsed while nearby government buildings survived intact, fuelling civil society allegations about “tofu” (poor-quality) materials and methods used in the construction of the schoolsTan said the attempt to establish the facts about “tofu” building methods posed a threat to local officials as it could expose corruption. The results of the investigation were to have been released on the first anniversary of the quake on Ai Weiwei’s blog, which was finally blocked (see the blocked page ). It was only a year after the quake that the government published its estimate that 5,335 children were killed.Armed police prevented Ai Weiwei and ten other people from going to the courthouse yesterday morning. They were forced to stay in their hotel until one hour after the hearing was over. Tan’s lawyer, Pu Zhiqiang, said it was because the police did not want to let anyone testify in his client’s defence.Like Tan, Ai Weiwei has been a critic of the ruling Communist Party of China since well before the May 2008 earthquake. At the start of the 2000s, he was a consultant in the design of the Bird’s Nest stadium for the Beijing Olympics but he ended up breaking with the project, saying that it projected a “pretend smile” and that only the powerful would benefit.The police not only prevented the would-be witnesses from attending the trial but also prevented the two journalists from privately-owned NOW TV from doing they work. They had come to cover the trial and were interviewing Ai Weiwei in the hotel when the police burst in.“They did not show their police identity cards or search warrant,” Wong Ka-yu, one of the journalists said. “They simply said they could search my room on suspicion that there was an illegal substance.”(see what the journalists secretly filmed )NOW TV issued a statement condemning the “rude obstruction” of its journalists’ work and announcing that it had filed a complaint with China’s Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office requesting an official explanation.

Unless we all pull together and respect each other’s difficulties, the country won’t advance.“There was no increase in road tax of any sort in the Budget. There is an interdepartmental committee looking at the issues that the hauliers have drawn attention to this morning, and the interdepartmental committee has engaged with the hauliers association to try and bring forward solutions.”He added that he would like to address the issues through the interdepartmental committee, “but not on the basis of protest”.However Mr Gavin said the protest was just the first phase of the Association’s campaign to bring about a rate reduction on commercial vehicle road tax.He added: “The industry needs the Government to fast track efforts to overhaul road tax for trucks in the south.

Q1 Mortgage Delinquency Snapshot

first_img  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago MBA Mortgage Bankers Association Mortgage Delinquencies National Delinquency Survey 2018-05-17 David Wharton As we approach hurricane season again, the impact of last year’s damaging storms are still being felt in the form of elevated 90+ day delinquency rates in some affected communities. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) National Delinquency Survey, four out of the top five states with the highest 90+ day delinquency rates in Q1 2018 were impacted by the hurricanes. Those states include Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. But how did the rest of the nation fair in Q1?The National Delinquency Survey reports that “the delinquency rate for mortgage loans on one-to-four-unit residential properties fell to a seasonally-adjusted rate of 4.63 percent of all loans outstanding at the end of the first quarter of 2018.” The delinquency rate dropped 54 basis points quarter-over-quarter, and also stood at eight basis points lower than a year prior.”The strong economy, low unemployment rate, tax refunds and bonuses, and home price appreciation were key factors that helped push delinquencies down in the first quarter,” said Marina Walsh, MBA’s VP of Industry Analysis. “Of course, there are offsetting factors that may put upward pressure on delinquency rates in future quarters, including: a difficult recovery for some borrowers in hurricane-impacted states; the aging of loan portfolios; higher interest rates that limit a borrower’s rate-term refinance options; higher energy prices; stretching of housing affordability given limited supply; and the easing of credit overlays as mortgage market conditions have changed.”The FHA delinquency rate declined by 136 basis quarter-over-quarter, marking the largest single-quarter decline reported for the National Delinquency Survey data series. The overall mortgage delinquency rate increased by 93 basis points for FHA loans, dropped by 26 basis points for conventional loans, and increased 42 basis points for VA loans.The report also found mortgage delinquencies decreasing across all stages of delinquency during Q1. Thirty-day delinquencies dropped by 27 basis points quarter-over-quarter, 60-day delinquencies dropped by 9 basis points, and 90-day delinquency dropped by 18 basis points.The foreclosure inventory rate hit a low not experienced since Q3 2006. The percentage of loans in the foreclosure process at the end of Q1 was 1.16 percent, down 3 basis points from Q4 2017. The rate is also 23 basis points lower year-over-year.To read the full MBA National Delinquency Survey, click here.

Manhattan office availability hits record high

first_imgMessage* Share via Shortlink The average asking rent in the fourth quarter was $74.39 per square foot, a decrease of 3.5 percent compared to the third quarter, and down 5.6 percent from a year ago.The severe impact from the pandemic was visible in all market indicators, said Franklin Wallach, Colliers’ senior managing director for New York research. But “value-seeking tenants” found some opportunities, he said.Major leases signed during the fourth quarter included NYU Langone’s 633,000-square-foot renewal at Vornado Realty Trust’s One Park Avenue; Justworks’ 270,000-square-foot renewal at 55 Water Street; the City of New York’s 157,000-square-foot renewal at AmTrust’s 250 Broadway; the Travelers’ 133,000-square-foot renewal at SL Green’s 485 Lexington Avenue; and Apple’s 117,000-square-foot expansion at Vornado’s Penn 11.The office investment sales sector was also affected by the pandemic, with a fewer number of deals made in the fourth quarter compared to a year ago. But the top deal — SL Green and Kaufman Organization’s sale of 410 Tenth Avenue for $952.8 million to 601W Companies — made a big splash. Total sales in the fourth quarter was $1.15 billion, down by 62 percent compared to a year ago.Peter Nicoletti, Colliers’ managing director and head of New York City capital markets, said that in 2021, “we anticipate more activity, especially around well-leased assets and those that are significantly impared.”Contact Akiko Matsuda Email Address* From left: 1 Park Avenue, 55 Water Street, 250 Broadway (Photos via Wikipedia, Google Maps, Eastern Consolidated)The office market in Manhattan finished out a bleak year with an even bleaker quarter.Manhattan’s office availability in the fourth quarter hit a record high of 14.3 percent. That’s 16.3 percent higher than it was in the third quarter, and up 43 percent compared to a year ago, according to Colliers International’s latest market report.A big chunk of that — 24.2 percent — was sublet inventory, which expanded by 6.45 million square feet in the past year.Overall, the pandemic left a large scar in Manhattan’s office market in 2020, reducing the annual leasing volume to 18.9 million square feet, down by 56 percent from a year ago.As companies deal with both a devastating economic downturn and grave uncertainty about their future office needs, leasing activity has dramatically declined. In the fourth quarter, only 4.2 million square feet was leased — down by a whopping 68.4 percent compared to the same period last year.Read moreWeWork battles Chetrit Group over Midtown lease601W lands $705M loan to fund West Side office buyA long road ahead for office landlordscenter_img Full Name* TagsappleCommercial Real EstateManhattanOffice Real Estate Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

Australian Navy’s Remaining LCHs Lower White Ensign

first_img As the sun slipped below the horizon, the Australian White Ensign was lowered for the final time on Navy’s three remaining Landing Craft Heavy (LCH).Past and present crew from HMA Ships Brunei, Labuan and Tarakan watched from the HMAS Cairns quarterdeck as the ships were decommissioned after almost forty years of service.The Assistant Minister for Defence represented the Prime Minister and was joined by the Member for Leichhard. Commander Australian Fleet, Rear Admiral Stuart Mayer, Head Navy Capability, Rear Admiral Mark Campbell, and the Secretary of the Papua New Guinea Department of Defence, Mr John Porti also attended.In his address, Commanding Officer HMAS Brunei, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Richardson said the three Balikpapan class vessels had a rich past.These ships have travelled over one and a half million miles between them, which is quite a bit, at 10 knots flat out. Over the years 100 Commanding Officers and nearly 4,000 crew members have served in them.Having commissioned way back in 1972, Brunei, Labuan and Tarakan are the number one, number two and number three longest serving ships in the history of the Royal Australian Navy. The ships have consistently served Australia around our waters and across the region, usually attending to the less glamorous but often the most appreciated operations, from cyclone relief, to regional assistance as well as military and border protection operations.Rear Admiral Mayer also paid tribute to the personnel who had served in the landing craft.The decommissioning of Brunei, Labuan and Tarakan marks the end of a chapter in the Royal Australian Navy’s history. While the ships will decommission, the crews will not. The skills and traditions, and I have no doubt the same sense of adventure will continue to be present in NUSHIP’s Canberra, Adelaide and the LHD Landing Craft that support them. These new ships may be bigger, but they are just metal without the crews that bring them to life.Following the decommissioning, Labuan will be gifted to the Papua New Guinea Defence Force Maritime Operations Element to strengthen their sealift capability.
