House prices bounce back in the capital

first_imgMonday 7 March 2011 8:32 pm whatsapp House prices bounce back in the capital Share Show Comments ▼ LONDON is rebounding from the UK’s housing market slump, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) revealed today.While house prices continued to fall throughout the rest of the country, prices actually rose in the capital in February, according to the latest RICS survey.A positive balance of 14 per cent of surveyors reported jumps in London house prices, compared to negative balances in all other regions. The south east was the least negative, with 16 per cent more surveyors reporting a decline in prices than a rise.“Broad trends in the survey indicate an increasing variation in the housing market across the UK with London and to a lesser extent the south east operating in a very different orbit,” said RICS spokesperson Jeremy Leaf.Wales (-58 per cent) and Yorkshire and Humberside (-51 per cent) were the worst performing regions.London was also the only region to report positive price expectations for the next three months.And new buyer enquiries were up strongly in the capital, well above the national average. Only Scotland recorded a larger increase in new enquiries for house purchases in February.Across the UK, 26 per cent more surveyors said that prices fell in February, compared to those who said prices rose.However, despite house prices continuing to drop nationally, there were signs that the market may be about to bottom out. A majority – 56 per cent – of respondents have reported prices as level for two months in a row, according to the section of data that is not adjusted for seasonal variations. And less than a third, 32 per cent, of surveyors reported lower prices in February – down from 50 per cent in December. whatsapp Tags: NULL Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

3 steps I’d take today to find top stock picks for 2021

first_img Finding top stock picks for 2021 may seem like a tough task to some investors. The 2020 stock market crash and an uncertain economic outlook mean the prospects for many companies are difficult to work out.However, I would focus on companies with solid financial positions and wide economic moats when they trade at low prices.That way, it may be possible to unearth the best shares for 2021. They could produce the strongest performances over the long run.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…Judging financial strength among potential top stock picksThe uncertain economic outlook means that today’s top stock picks may be those businesses with solid financial positions. They may be able to more easily overcome what could prove to be a tough period for many industries and regions over the coming months.Analysing a company’s financial position can be done by taking a look at its annual report and recent trading updates. They provide information on areas such as its debt levels, which is always important when weighing up an investment. They can also show how many times its operating profit covered interest costs and the amount of liquidity it has available. All of these areas can make a real difference to its ability to survive what could be a volatile 2021. They can impact how it is able use an uncertain period to its advantage in terms of making acquisitions and innovating.Analysing a company’s competitive positionTop stock picks for 2021 may also be those companies that can outperform their sector peers via a competitive advantage. For example, they may have a unique product, enjoy strong brand loyalty or have a lower cost base than rivals. This can make a real difference to their profitability both in difficult economic circumstances and when a period of strong growth takes place.Therefore, focusing on a company’s competitors could be a sound move. It may highlight the strengths and weaknesses of a business that are not always obvious. They may make an impact on how successful it proves to be from an investment perspective.Ensuring a margin of safety is obtainedAs ever, the top stock picks of today could prove to be those companies that trade at a large discount to their intrinsic values. In other words, their share prices currently undervalue their long-term financial prospects. This may provide them with greater scope to deliver capital appreciation over the coming years.Assessing a company’s value, in terms of metrics such as price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio and price-to-book (P/B) ratio, on a standalone and relative basis could be worthwhile. It may allow an investor to determine which companies in a specific sector offer the best value for money. They may be among the top performers in 2021 and beyond. And they could have the biggest positive impact on an investor’s portfolio.

Nuapay & Felloh! partner to cut cost of processing donations

first_img Tagged with: cashless payment Finance Melanie May | 17 June 2020 | News Nuapay & Felloh! partner to cut cost of processing donations Account to account payment solutions provider and open banking specialist Nuapay has partnered with Felloh!, a UK-based start-up and social enterprise, to help reduce payment processing costs for charities.According to the firms, in 2019, the UK’s total B2C e-commerce market reached £233 billion, of which £2.33 billion went on processing costs and card fees, based on an estimate of 1% of total transaction value. With 2018 seeing £10.1 billion given to charities in the UK, this potentially means some £101 million went on fees and costs instead of contributing to charitable services.Founded by a group of furloughed entrepreneurs, Felloh! is aiming to turn reduced payment processing costs into £1 billion in donations for charities and social enterprises. It says its new open banking based solution, which uses Nuapay’s FCA regulated open banking payment platform, will charge charities 80% less than other online donation platforms, with a £50 donation made through Felloh! for example having a 25p processing cost.Felloh!’s pay button can be integrated into charities’ and retailers’ websites. Consumers can donate directly to charities or pay for purchases by clicking on the button and approving the payment in their banking app. This also enables the organisations to reduce payment processing costs through avoiding card scheme fees. And, for every payment taken online on a retailer’s site, 10p is also set aside via an escrow account for their selected charity. SMEs or charities in offline environments can also collect payments via QR codes.Payments are transferred in real-time and reconciliation is fully automated, and charities can also opt to have Gift Aid automatically calculated in an HMRC-friendly presentation, while through Nuapay’s platform, all transactions are fully Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) compliant.Will Bicknell, Founder at Felloh! said:“We asked beta testers if they would use the Felloh! button as a payment method for online goods and 96.8% said yes. This confirmed our mission was one of longevity, and not just a lockdown project. Our pursuit is to change the way people make digital payments while simultaneously providing a better donation platform for social enterprises and charities. We selected Nuapay as our partner due to its extensive functionality and service levels.”Robin Bradley, Trustee of Spotlight on Africa – one of the first charities to use the new service, said: Advertisement  566 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

We are also excited about a new source of donations via their payment button with retailers and delighted to be one of their earliest partners.”In addition, as a social enterprise, once Felloh! has covered its own costs it will give a minimum of 50% of profits to charitable causes.  567 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Ex-convict, volunteers aim to rebuild Las Vegas Trail area

first_imgFacebook Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature City to approve Westcliff rezoning, tackle loopholes that allow “stealth dorms” Linkedin + posts ReddIt printEx-convict and former gang leader Abdul Chappell shared lyrics he wrote about the Las Vegas Trail area.“I yearn to tell all that I seen/ So you won’t go through the same/ Please take the path of better choices/ So you won’t end up in a cage.”Chappell grew up in the Las Vegas Trail area, which Fort Worth police and city officials say is overrun with crime and unemployment.The Las Vegas Trail is a street that stretches for about a mile from Interstate 30 to Camp Bowie Boulevard.Councilman Brian Byrd organized the second of several meetings Monday night to hear from residents how best to reduce crime and increase opportunities in the area.Councilman Brian Byrd addresses residents and other volunteers at the Las Vegas Trail meeting on Monday. (Photo by Kayley Ryan)“We got really interested in this when we heard the story of a 12-year-old little girl who was trafficked, impregnated and the only reason she escaped is she beat on the door and the walls of the Knights Inn where she was being held,” Byrd said. “When I heard about that, I thought, that’s it. We can’t put up with that over here.”Just a couple blocks away from the Knights Inn, residents gathered at a meeting at the Western Hills Elementary School.Byrd said he wanted to hear from residents like Chappell, who was in and out of prison or juvenile detention centers since his teenage years.Abdul Chappell shares his story after the meeting Monday night. (Photo by Kayley Ryan)Chappell said he started the Las Vegas Trail branch of the Los Angeles-based Crips street gang.“I was a pretty bad guy,” Chappell said. “But if people can see me change, they know they can change.”While in prison, Chappell earned his associate’s degree in business and marketing and wrote nine books.He won two appeals and was released eight years early in 2014, when he started the Build a Better Hood Foundation to keep kids from falling into crime.Chappell said he has spoken to 10,000 students in Fort Worth high schools and middle schools.His foundation provides free boundaries classes, women empowerment classes, art classes for kids, after-school reading and job training, he said.But he and other volunteers in the room said they wanted to see more support for their programs.Chappell wants to see a community center built in the neighborhood.“There’s nothing for the kids to do, no community center, no parks out here,” he said. “So what do you expect for kids to do if they’re running around and there’s nothing to do… A lot of people made mistakes when they were teens, they just didn’t get caught and go to jail for it.”Organizers at Monday’s meeting noted each concern on a sheet of paper. (Photo by Kayley Ryan)Laretta Smith, who directs local outreach at Birchman Baptist Church, pointed out a lack of affordable housing. She said the rent at hotels or apartments is already exorbitant for the quality they provide.“They come to me begging me to pay for them to be in this horrible hotel,” Smith said.She expressed concern that residents could be evicted if housing renovations increase the cost of living.“Is there something that’s going to help with that, with the housing, with opening up housing so they can get on it,” she asked, “and some restriction so that when these apartments are fixed, they’re not going to go up on the rent so that the people that are living there cannot afford it?”The Rev. Doreen Haley, a resident of Las Vegas Trail and a veteran, said volunteers should step outside of their comfort zones to find people who don’t look like the 130 attendees at Monday’s meeting.“If you really want to make a difference, Las Vegas Trail don’t look like the people in this room,” Haley said. “You got clothes that are serviceable, that don’t have holes in them, that are not dirty. You don’t smell.” She repeated, “That is not what Las Vegas Trail looks like.”Haley said volunteers should meet residents where they are.“Come to the street, talk to the people, gather up some names, and find out who wants to be a part of something real that you have,” she said.Byrd and other city leaders said that change in the Las Vegas Trail area would come from people like Chappell, who they described as an “ambassador.”“I’m out here in the streets sometimes two or three o’clock in the morning,” Chappell said. “There would be a lot more shootings, and there would be a lot more crime and stuff going on if a lot of us with Build a Better Hood weren’t out here in the streets.”Chappell shared some of the last few lines of his original song, “Thank You for Livin.’” The song touches on one his principal goals as an activist, to rebuild his “[neighbor]hood.”“Now they done took enough of our children/ It’s time to build the hood up/ And get our babies back.” Linkedin Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ $800 million bond looks to expand JPS medical and behavioral health facilities Fort Worth recognized for growing music scene Facebook ReddIt Twitter 10th-annual Frogstock features student-led music Previous articleStudents gather for free food, conversation at annual Fall Faith FestivalNext articleTCU to host annual turkey giveaway Kayley Ryan RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Twitter Kayley Ryan Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more
