Manufacturers oppose rate rise

first_imgSunday 3 April 2011 10:59 pm A sustained economic recovery in the UK “cannot be taken for granted,” manufacturers’ group EEF said today. “Interest rates must remain on hold until much stronger evidence emerges of a healthier economy,” said EEF economist Lee Hopley. “Any bounce back in the first quarter will not necessarily signal a rebound in economic fortunes,” she added. “Growth is dependent on a pick up in private sector contributions from trade and investment.” KCS-content Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com whatsapp Manufacturers oppose rate rise Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ whatsapplast_img read more

I’d buy these cheap UK shares for the new bull market in 2021

first_imgI’d buy these cheap UK shares for the new bull market in 2021 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Enter Your Email Address 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. I’m highly excited about the outlook for UK equities. Many London-listed companies are trading at deeply discounted valuations. With the outlook for the economy improving, I reckon there’s a strong possibility these investments could yield large total returns for investors in the medium term. As such, I’m looking to buy a basket of cheap UK shares to profit from the new bull market. There are a couple of companies that stand out to me as being cheap. 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…Cheap UK shares on offer In my opinion, some of the most attractive UK investments can be found in the FTSE 250. Unlike the FTSE 100, these companies are smaller, but that’s not a disadvantage. Smaller companies tend to grow faster than their larger peers. Therefore, I reckon there’s a strong chance they can produce larger returns for investors.And if investors acquire these stocks at a discounted valuation, they could benefit from both earnings growth and a valuation uplift. Virgin Money is a great example of the sort of cheap UK shares I’m looking for. One of the UK’s leading challenger banks, the group’s customer base has expanded rapidly in recent years. However, due to the pandemic, the lender has had to write off millions in loans to customers, pushing it into a significant loss. Nevertheless, management is expecting a return to profitability in the next two years. If the company can hit this target, I think the stock could rise significantly from current levels. It’s currently changing hands at a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of just 0.4. I believe that’s appropriate for a loss-making business, but profitable corporations should trade at or above the value. If Virgin can return to the black, I reckon the valuation may also recover. Many other financial firms have suffered the same fate as Virgin. I believe several of these may see the same valuation uplift when they return to profit. Provident Financial and OSB are two examples. They’ve reported losses this year but are expected to return to growth in the near term. When owned as part of a basket of cheap UK shares, I reckon these companies could produce large total returns. Temporary headwindsI think the best cheap UK shares are those suffering from temporary headwinds. Serco is an example.This outsourcer has made some mistakes in the past, but management seems to be getting on top of the firm’s problems. Profits are projected to hit £100m this year, up from £50m in 2019. As profits grow, I reckon investor sentiment towards the business will dramatically improve as well. Dixons Carphone also seems to me to be suffering from temporary headwinds. The company recently embarked on a vast restructuring. It’s planning to close all of its brick-and-mortar stores to cut costs as well as renegotiating contracts with mobile phone providers. This has resulted in losses in the near term. But I reckon it’s a sensible decision that should lead to higher profit margins and more significant profits in the long run.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Housing crisis is deepening, says HomeOwners Alliance

first_imgThe proportion of renters who aspire to be home owners has started to reduce after several years of rising aspirations, a survey conducted by the HomeOwners Alliance has revealed.An additional 250,000 renters in the UK gave up on the home-owning dream, its 2017 Homeowners Report suggests, pointing to a worsening housing crisis across the UK.Among the renters it canvassed 71% said they aspired to own their home one day, down from 73% last year but still more than in 2013 when the proportion was 65%.The HomeOwners Alliance, which publishes the report jointly with BLP Insurance, says the main barrier to ownership among 86% of renters is house prices, while 85% say saving for a deposit is also a serious concern and 80% say they can’t find a home to buy.The report highlights how average earnings in the UK have been increasing recently by 2.6% annually, house prices have increased by 4.5%.Housing crisisThe HomeOwners Alliance says its report reveals a worsening housing crisis that is no longer restricted to just the more crowded areas of the UK such as London and the South East.For example, 68% of those canvassed in both Yorkshire and Humber and Northern Ireland are worried that, if they bought a home with a mortgage, they were reluctant to buy their first property because they not be able to re-pay the mortgage.“While we are used to stories about people not being able to buy a home until they are 40, the story has taken a turn for the worse with people increasingly giving up altogether on the dream of homeownership,” says Paula Higgins (pictured), Chief Executive of the HomeOwners Alliance.But her organisation’s report also contains some good news.

It incorporated multilateral land, air and sea forces working together to improve regional cooperation, maritime domain awareness and information sharing practices to increase capabilities of East African and Indian Ocean nations to counter sea-based illicit activity.The exercise’s focus on fighting this activity that’s currently harming East Africa hit close to home for Mauritius and its president.Purryag toured the vessel and met with exercise personnel, including Vice Adm. Tom Reck, U.S. Sixth Fleet vice commander.
