Covid-19 vaccines could be imminent! How I think this affects the UK stock market

July 5, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgCovid-19 vaccines could be imminent! How I think this affects the UK stock market 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. See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Stock markets are rallying this month for a variety of reason, but primarily in response to the exciting prospect of effective Covid-19 vaccines. Two prominent US pharma companies have seen their vaccines sail through phase 3 trials with 90% and 95% success rates. That’s wildly more impressive than scientists previously expected, and hope has been well and truly ignited.Covid-19 vaccines boost the FTSE 100The companies both make their vaccines using technology called mRNA, which programs the body’s cells to produce antigens and generate immunity. It’s very exciting news as the year-end approaches and stock markets globally are rejoicing.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…The UK government has reportedly ordered five million doses of Moderna’s 95% effective vaccine, along with 40m doses of Pfizer/BioNTech’s 90% effective vaccine. Most people will need at least two vaccine shots each, and the country has a population of roughly 66m people. This means the government needs to order a lot more to be in a position to accommodate everyone.There are also further hurdles ahead. Firstly, the vaccines must be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They also need to be stored at freezing temperatures, making distribution and manufacturing at scale tricky. Dosing must follow a strict regime which also varies between vaccines. Finally, the frequency of vaccination is unclear yet, but it’s highly likely that we will require recurring vaccines. In any case, a first round of vaccines is a step in the right direction.Stock market volatility aheadAll this points to volatility ahead in the UK stock market. While the positive sentiment is very welcome after a year that’s proved dismal for many companies, it seems we’re not at the finish line quite yet.Pfizer believes it can produce enough vaccines for between 600m and 700m people before the end of 2021. That’s not enough to get 70% of the world’s population inoculated, so vaccines from multiple manufacturers are necessary. Hope remains for the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine, which follows a different design. Pressure is mounting on this one because the UK government has ordered 100m doses. Results are due in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, AstraZeneca’s share price is slipping.Buy cheap shares and holdThe continued volatility provides an opportunity for savvy investors to buy cheap stocks and hold them for the long term. Positive sentiment returning to the UK stock market after months of negativity is reassuring to long term investors.The main stocks soaring in response to the news were in the sectors hardest hit by the pandemic’s lockdowns. Travel, entertainment, oil, airline, and industry stocks all rallied on hopes that demand for their products and services will soon return. During last week’s rally and yesterday’s bounce, clear winners were Rolls Royce, Cineworld, Whitbread, and IAG. Some have slipped back today. Personally, I think Rolls-Royce is too big to fail, but I’m bearish on Cineworld and Whitbread. Nevertheless, all of them demand a degree of caution. Cheap shares I like in the FTSE 100 include BAE Systems, Vodafone, GlaxoSmithKline, and Glencore.With virus cases still rapidly increasing, investors should not be complacent. The vaccine news is very welcome, but UK citizens are unlikely to receive it until springtime at the earliest. Therefore, risk remains in the UK stock market until we bring the virus under control.

The Royal Mail share price is flying! Here’s what I’m doing now

See all posts by Jabran Khan During the Covid-19 global pandemic, Royal Mail (LSE:RMG) has been a big winner. The rise in online shopping and parcel deliveries has benefitted the postal services provider. In turn, the Royal Mail share price is considerably higher than pre-market crash levels. With that in mind, do I invest my hard earned cash or not?Royal Mail share price since the crashSince the economic downturn, the RMG share price has experienced quite the roller-coaster ride. As with most other stocks across the markets, its price dipped in March, April and May. The lifting of restrictions in June saw its price begin a recovery of sorts. At its lowest point I could pick up shares for just 126p. Shares were trading for 182p per share in February. As I write this the Royal Mail share price is close to 340p. The news of a Covid-19 vaccine has boosted many stocks and investor sentiment is up too in my opinion.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…Recent performance and Covid-19 implicationsWith the rise in parcel deliveries due to restrictions, RMG reported its parcel revenue superseded its letters revenue. This is the first time this has ever happened in its history. I’m not too surprised as sending letters is seen as something of a dying art, given advancements in technology and a changing demographic across the country.Despite Covid-19 being a fruitful time in terms of performance for RMG, it has also brought to light some of its deeper rooted issues. I believe the Royal Mail share price has been hindered by this despite its recovery since the crash. One of those problems is that of its reliance on revenue from the letters side of the business. In addition to this, it has failed to properly invest in the technology needed to grow the parcel side of the business. Furthermore, RMG has a unionised workforce that has caused issues such as strike action. The Royal Mail share price will have benefitted from the performance of its small international parcels operation, General Logistic Systems (GLS). Its recent interim results showed a revenue increase of over 20% and operating profit increasing by over 80%. I believe this small parcel arm could be a key part of RMG’s growth plans in the future.What I’m doing nowRecent analyst upgrades have helped the Royal Mail share price rally in my opinion. JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and UBS have all upgraded RMG shares in recent weeks. I believe these upgrades are linked to three main aspects: RMG’s performance at the height of the pandemic, a changing world whereby parcels rule over letters, and GLS’ positive results.I am not overly buoyed by RMG from an investment perspective and would not invest my money right now. For me, there are too many issues and a track record that doesn’t fill me with confidence. I believe RMG needs to invest heavily in technology and somehow reduce costs too. It will need to do this as well as contend with a unionised workforce. There is too much work to be done in my eyes. Casting aside the tempting Royal Mail share price, I am looking at alternatives such as this bank stock. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

The Doninpark project was developed as an eight-story residential, office and retail building, located in the 22nd district in Vienna, directly behind the “Kagraner Platz” subway stop. In terms of urban planning, this location is characterized be enormous leaps in scale: to the east lies a dense, urban area with extensive infrastructure, while the area to the west has a more suburban feel, with numerous single-family and multi-family dwellings and sports fields.Save this picture!Master PlanFor this reason, the leap in scale also became the central design idea. The window openings and alcoves, which seem to be almost randomly placed, create a façade that is “scaleless”, just like the surrounding area. This makes it almost impossible for the viewer to capture the true dimensions of the building at first sight and effectively masks the true size and expanse of the building.Save this picture!© Jasmin SchullerHowever, the size and expanse were essentially imposed, since the building exactly meets the requirements of Vienna’s master urban plan. One could thus say that the city of Vienna designed the building, and the building thus displays a kind of radical pragmatism (i.e. one does exactly what one is allowed to do).Save this picture!SectionThe ground floor of the building houses a shopping zone that faces the subway stop, while the first and second floors feature office space and a gym. The third floor upwards is residential quarters. The apartments are oriented towards the east or west and can be accessed via a central aisle. Each residential unit is equipped with a balcony, loggia or alcove. The loggias are on the east side, thereby creating a distance to the street space.Save this picture!© Jasmin SchullerProject gallerySee allShow lessLight Matters: Mashrabiyas – Translating Tradition into Dynamic FacadesArticlesDiamond Hill Crematorium / Architectural Services DepartmentSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Vienna, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Unsuccessful meeting between newspaper editors and deputy minister

June 12, 2021 0 Comments

first_img RSF_en Unsuccessful meeting between newspaper editors and deputy minister May 18, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 BelarusEurope – Central Asia “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says June 2, 2021 Find out more News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemns the Belarus government’s treatment of independent newspapers that cover social issues and politics, in particular, its refusal since last autumn to issue eight of them with the accreditation they need to operate legally. Three editors– Vadzim Barshcheuski of the Vitsebsk-based newspaper Nash Dom, Siarhei Balay of the Navapolatsk-based Khimik: Dva Goroda and Uladzimir Shyla of the Salihorsk-based Soligorsk Plus – requested a joint meeting with deputy information minister Lilya Ananich on 12 May with the aim of finding out the reason for the government’s refusals. Instead the minister received them one by one. The encounter was “disappointing” and their attempts to argue their case were unsuccessful, they said.The meeting might be seen as a goodwill gesture by the authorities but that would be far from the truth. The outcome showed that, although the government is pressuring newspapers to legalise their status, it is not ready to give them the accreditation they need.Instead, it is just creating more obstacles by finding additional trivial reasons to deny independent and opposition newspapers the required permits. Receiving the publishers separately, in order to handle each case on an individual basis and undermine their united front, seems to be the government’s latest tactic. The publishers should stick together. A global solution is needed.The authorities use silly pretexts for refusing accreditation. Khimik: Dva Goroda is about to make its fourth request but its editor, Balay, fears another rejection. The first time, it was refused on the grounds that its editor did not have a university degree. They second time on the grounds that it described itself as covering “general politics” but had a section called “House and Garden.” And the third time because of an alleged lack of hygiene in its office. Balay said the application procedure could be fairly simple but the ministry complicates it unnecessarily by insisting that it will accept applications only twice a week. He added that he had expected nothing from last week’s meeting but saw it as the first step in a future concerted action.Shyla, whose newspaper has been refused accreditation twice, said he was very disappointed by the meeting, in which the deputy minister turned a deaf ear to his pleas. The ministry refused to give Soligorsk Plus accreditation on the ground that its office was in Shyla’s home although this is allowed by the law. The ministry insists on respect for the letter of the law, but only when it suits the government.The deputy minister refused to discuss the case of Nash Dom, which has appealed against the ministry’s refusal to give it accreditation. The supreme court is due to issue a ruling on the case on 20 May.Reporters Without Borders is of the view that the refusals are all politically motivated and lack any basis in concrete facts that would be admitted by any proper court.The press freedom organisation therefore supports all the journalists who have been the victims of these refusals and urges the authorities to grant them the required accreditation. Some newspapers try to keep publishing without accreditation but, when they do, the authorities have a free hand to seize issues as they are published and block their distribution.

Health crisis spreads to Croom hospital

first_imgNewsLocal NewsHealth crisis spreads to Croom hospitalBy Alan Jacques – September 19, 2017 1978 Cllr Séighin Ó CeallaighCllr Séighin Ó CeallaighTHE county’s public healthcare crisis is not just confined to University Hospital Limerick, as overcrowding in Croom Orthopaedic Hospital is also “a serious issue”.That’s the view of Sinn Féin councillor Séighin Ó Ceallaigh who said he was absolutely shocked by the conditions affecting both staff and patients when he visited the hospital last week.“The staff were doing their utmost to try and accommodate people, but unfortunately the facilities were not there to treat people in the outpatients clinic,” he told the Limerick Post.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The waiting room for the outpatients clinic can seat about ten people, but there were around 25 waiting to be seen, some of whom were waiting two to three hours for a scheduled appointment. The worst part was seeing people in crutches being forced to stand because of the lack of seating in the waiting room. The halls were packed with people, including the elderly and children, it simply wasn’t safe nor acceptable,” he claimed.He went on to say that he doesn’t believe that in the current “orchestrated health crisis, designed to encourage people to pay private for healthcare, that it’s too much to ask to treat people with some respect and provide seating for them in the hospital waiting room”.In response, UL Hospitals Group stated, “Croom Orthopaedic Hospital is over 100 years old, and while the building has some shortcomings because of its age and infrastructure, a plan for development of a new theatre and outpatients suite is contained in the current capital development plan.€15 million has been sought to progress this capital development and we are hopeful that a mid-year capital review by the Department of Health will provide funding to commence design and enabling works.“The staff in Croom work very hard to ensure the patient and their families are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve and the results of a recent patient satisfaction survey have reassured us that our patients acknowledge this, feedback from patients was very positive.“We continue to deliver the best quality care possible within the infrastructure available and work to ensure that the services are as efficient as possible at all times.“Croom Orthopaedic Hospital has seen 5,471 outpatients to July 2017 and has had over 900 inpatients to date this year.“The majority of patients are assessed before surgery to minimise their hospital length of stay. Sometimes if a patient is waiting 3 to 4 hours it may be because they are having several treatments or procedures during their visit, for example, x-ray with a cast removed and re-applied for example,” the statement concluded.by Alan [email protected] Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live WhatsApp Linkedin WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Twitter Print Email Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live center_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Facebook Previous articleLimerick entrepreneurs encouraged to seek advice and helpNext articleRathkeale singing bursary hits the high notes Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie TAGSCllr Séighin Ó CeallaighCroom Orthopaedic HospitallimerickSinn FeinUL Hospitals Group Advertisement Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more

Former Washington Mutual Parent Company Acquires Mr. Cooper

May 31, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgHome / Featured / Former Washington Mutual Parent Company Acquires Mr. Cooper Nationstar Mortgage, the Coppell, Texas-based mortgage servicing company that recently rebranded itself as Mr. Cooper in an effort to grow out of a niche closely associated with the Great Recession, is merging with the holding company that formerly owned Washington Mutual Bank, the companies announced.Nationstar shareholders will get $1.2 billion in cash from Seattle-based WMIH Corp. and $702 million in shares of the new combined company, whose shares will be traded on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol WMIH.A news release said that Nationstar—which has about 7,000 employees, including about 4,000 in Dallas-Fort Worth—will continue its operations “as normal.” Nationstar’s senior leadership team will head the combined company, which will still be known as Nationstar Mortgage and keep its headquarters.WMIH Corp. was formerly Washington Mutual Inc., the parent of Washington Mutual Bank. But Washington Mutual was seized by the Office of Thrift Supervision in 2008, and the bank-holding company filed for bankruptcy.In 2012, WMIH Corp emerged from bankruptcy and has essentially been laying low since then, running a “legacy reinsurance business operating in runoff mode.”But recently, it has been looking for acquisitions, primarily focusing on the “financial institutions sector.”Nationstar, WMIH’s executives said, fit the bill.“Nationstar aligns perfectly with our acquisition strategy and has a strong track record of providing mortgage servicing and loan and real estate offerings in various market conditions,” said Bill Gallagher, CEO of WMIH, in a statement.Gallagher said that Nationstar is good at mortgage servicing “in various market conditions,” while WMIH will be able to infuse Nationstar’s operations with cash.The merger comes several months after Nationstar made official its long-gestating rebrand to “Mr. Cooper,” a change that executives told The Dallas Morning News was aimed at making the mortgage business more approachable.As Mr. Cooper, Nationstar hoped to grow by originating more mortgages, rather than largely servicing delinquent mortgages—a niche business that ballooned during the downturn.Now that the country’s housing market is on a hot streak, Nationstar has tried to capitalize.In August, Nationstar’s CEO, Jay Bray, said the company spent more than $90 million in upgrading its operating and consumer technology and spent 50,000 hours training employees.He said that the changes had yielded $20 billion in new loans originated by Nationstar.About two years ago, around 20 percent of the company’s portfolio was in loans that Nationstar had originated or refinanced (as opposed to existing loans that Nationstar bought for cheap from banks). At the time, he said, that was up to about 30 percent.“I am passionately committed to continuing and accelerating our growth and investment as a leader in our industry, leveraging our best-in-class integrated servicing and originations platform,” Bray said in a statement on Tuesday. in Featured, Headlines, Journal, News, Secondary Market, Servicing February 19, 2018 4,291 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Former Washington Mutual Parent Company Acquires Mr. Cooper Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: CoreLogic Announces New Addition to Government Affairs Team Next: Black Knight Announces Pricing of Secondary Common Stock Offering Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Company News mortgage mortgage servicing Mr. Cooper Nationstar Washington Mutual 2018-02-19 David Wharton The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: David Wharton Related Articles Tagged with: Company News mortgage mortgage servicing Mr. Cooper Nationstar Washington Mutuallast_img read more
