Why I’d ignore the Lloyds share price and buy this UK share from the FTSE 100

first_imgThere are a number of reasons why the Lloyds share price doesn’t appeal to me. Sure, it might look cheap on paper. But I’m worried about: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 possibility that low interest rates of the past decade will be here to stay. This threatens banks’ profits as it narrows the difference between the rates that they offer borrowers and savers.The threat of prolonged UK economic growth following Covid-19 and Brexit. This could significantly hamper profits expansion at Lloyds as it has little foreign exposure.The competitive dangers posed by financial technology (or fintech) companies. Digital banks like Starling Bank and money transfer company Wise, for example, threaten the long-term position of UK banking shares like Lloyds.Cheap but riskyIt’s possible that I’m being a bit too bearish towards the FTSE 100 bank. Senior Bank of England policymaker Andy Haldane has suggested rates in fact may have to rise to curb the threat of soaring inflation. Lloyds is also investing heavily in technology and cutting costs to head off the threat of the nimbler fintech challengers.Fans of this UK banking share might also argue that these threats are reflected in the low Lloyds share price. Today the company trades on a low price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.1. Any reading below 1 can suggest that a firm is undervalued by traders and investors.It’s not a UK share that I’m willing to take a chance with, though. Even if City predictions of a strong post-pandemic profits bounce materialise there are still significant long-term threats for Lloyds to head off.A better UK shareThis is why I’d much rather invest my hard-earned cash in Unilever (LSE: ULVR) instead. Even if the economy in line for a long downturn this UK share can still expect profits to keep rising.For one, this FTSE 100 company has a gigantic geographic wingspan which negates the impact of tough economic conditions in one or two regions on group profits. It sells a broad range of essential consumer products which keep sales rolling in during good times and bad. And in terms of competition, Unilever has the sort of brand power to see off the threat that producers of generic fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) pose.Now Unilever’s shares don’t come cheap. This UK share trades on a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 21 times. And this puts it in danger of a sharp share price reversal if demand for its goods suddenly sinks. Studies show that traditional FMCG brands have gradually lost power during the past 10 years. Unilever will have to work hard to stop the allure of its brands from fading further.That said, I still think there’s a lot to be excited about Unilever today. It’s why I already own the share in my own Stocks and Shares ISA. And I certainly think its earnings outlook is much more robust than that of Lloyds. Royston Wild owns shares of Unilever.

ESG investing: 3 of the smartest ways for me to get involved right now

first_imgESG investing: 3 of the smartest ways for me to get involved right now Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images ESG investing rests on three pillars. These are environmental concerns, social actions and appropriate governance. Although at first glance you might think these play second fiddle to financial performance, they’re increasingly important and ESG is becoming a viable investment sector. I’d say that over the past year, this area has really taken off. Companies are also recognising the benefit of being ESG-friendly. So how exactly can I capitalise on this growing trend?What makes a company ESG-friendly?The three elements of ESG investing are quantifiable. Environmental concerns can be seen by the way the company manufactures its products, even down to the packaging. The social side of ESG can be looked at from the extent of workers rights and pay. Governance is down to how well the management team runs the business and oversees the other two points.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…After reading the above, it’s clear that some companies can more readily show ESG credentials and this is my first smart way of buying in to the ESG trend. For example, let’s say I’m deciding between two companies for ESG investing. One is an insurance business, the other is a manufacturer. The manufacturer can commit to being net-carbon-neutral in production, reducing other emissions and more. The insurance company will struggle to show the same level of response simply because it doesn’t have a large impact on the environment in the first place.There’s nothing wrong with this, but as an investor I could get enhanced returns from buying shares in a company that can more readily show improvement from the angle of ESG. If it’s clearer to the market and well publicised, it could see a share price bump.More ways to go about ESG investingOne of the easiest ways to get exposure and make investments in ESG-positive firms is via a mutual fund. Various ESG funds exist and simply track the performance of a collection of stocks that are deemed to be ESG-friendly. Popular stocks are Unilever and AstraZeneca. In this regard, it takes out the homework needed. I can buy in to a ready made portfolio and simply watch the results.The downside of buying such an ESG fund is that I don’t have the ability to tailor it. If there are companies in the fund that I don’t like, or some missing that I would rather buy, I can’t tweak the specifications. This is down to the fund manager, and I don’t have control over this.Another way of going about ESG investing is trying to spot companies before management makes a large commitment to the cause. Companies that I feel could do a lot more include Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (in terms of the stocks in which it chooses to invest) and Royal Dutch Shell. They have a huge opportunity to take a step forwards in the near future and are likely to do so.Given the trend of ESG investing, I expect more companies to actively make changes to appeal to this portion of investors. So buying shares in companies now that could do more, may preempt a future rally in the share price. Overall, I think it’s clear ESG investing is here to stay. So either buying into a specialist fund or looking for future ESG stars I think is the way to go.

The old residential building of San Mateo was among the most iconic structures of the city of Lorca, due to its unusual configuration with a central space opening onto Juan Carlos I Avenue.

The contest guidelines made special mention of the need for design projects to establish a structure of ownership reflecting that of the original building, so that each of the owners could regain the position they had previously occupied in the complex.Save this picture!© DAVID FRUTOS FOTOGRAFÍA DE ARQUITECTURAThe proposal submitted by MCEA | ARQUITECTURA and NAOS 04 ARQUITECTOS envisioned the architectural project as an instrument capable of making reconstruction viable through achieving the necessary consensus of all owners within the building. Thus it was seen as essential to incorporate into the draft process the experiences and different ways of living that each of the owners had developed over time, so that the reconstruction and occupation of new homes could be made the least traumatic possible. Similarly, owners were also given the opportunity to incorporate into the project their current and future needs, through the design of flexible layouts that led in many cases to the availability of either new a single dwelling or two smaller ones.Save this picture!© DAVID FRUTOS FOTOGRAFÍA DE ARQUITECTURAThis participatory process, in which all owners were individually involved with the design team, consisted primarily of the following phases:1. In the first phase the needs of each individual owner were defined by filling out detailed forms reflecting all the proposals and comments which they considered relevant.2. In the second phase of work a process of designing housing typologies was undertaken, one which embraced all proposals for distribution received in the first phase.3. A third phase of work was then developed in which each of the owners were given the different typologies defined on the vertical of their home, in order to select the one which best suited their needs and finally to introduce those specific changes considered opportune by each owner.Save this picture!© DAVID FRUTOS FOTOGRAFÍA DE ARQUITECTURAThe end result of this participatory process was reflected in the final draft, which included 45 different dwelling typologies, thus achieving the acceptance of, and identification with, owners in the jointly developed project.Save this picture!© DAVID FRUTOS FOTOGRAFÍA DE ARQUITECTURAThis process, which incorporated the willingness of each individual owner to contribute to the ordering and management of the whole group of dwellings, also sought to reflect a similar ethos in the design of the façade, through a general system of shutters in which the individual of owners could change the overall composition, thus obtaining an image of the building in constant flux and adaption to the needs of the individuals therein.Save this picture!© DAVID FRUTOS FOTOGRAFÍA DE ARQUITECTURAProject gallerySee allShow lessAdaptive Reuse of a SOM Landmark / Inaba Williams ArchitectsSelected ProjectsAB Residence / F:Poles ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Av.

Palliative care cahrities land £1 million BUPA fund

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 25 January 2007 | News Palliative care cahrities land £1 million BUPA fund BUPA Giving has pledged £1,187,041 to The Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute and The National Council for Palliative Care.BUPA Giving is a new charitable initiative set-up to celebrate BUPA turning 60 next year and complements BUPA’s existing charitable initiatives. BUPA Giving supports the development of services and those who provide them to improve health and care.The money will be used over three years to fund three different projects in the fields of palliative and dementia care in care homes. Palliative care improves the quality of life for patients and families who face life-threatening illness by providing pain relief, symptom relief and spiritual and psychosocial support from diagnosis to the end of life and bereavement.The chosen projects will seek to extend the use of the acclaimed Liverpool Care Pathway in care homes, developed specifically for people dying from dementia.The Liverpool Care Pathway was developed seven years ago by the Palliative Care Institute based at the Marie Curie Hospice in Liverpool. This innovative programme developed palliative care techniques to provide people with the highest quality of care.In 2000 the LCP gained widespread national and international recognition when it was awarded National Beacon Status for Palliative Care. The annual National Beacon Award recognises best practice and is a reflection of the dedication and hard work shown by The Palliative Care Institute.The first project involves introducing the LCP into 125 of BUPA’s care homes. These homes will provide training and support to enable residents to receive palliative care using the LCP’s award-winning techniques that have been shown to improve quality of life.The second project is a joint bid from Marie Curie and the National Council for Palliative Care. It will offer BUPA Care Homes the opportunity to engage in a unique development programme focused on care delivery and staff training. It also includes providing the NCPC’s good practice ./guidance and services to all of BUPA’s care homes.The final project will be a national pilot for the use of the LCP programme in caring for residents with dementia. With the support of the Liverpool Marie Curie team and the specialist dementia charity, for dementia, BUPA will be developing personalised palliative care for people with dementia. At the end of the project the goal will be to offer high quality palliative care for people with dementia.Mark Ralf, chairman of BUPA Giving, said: “The need to provide high quality palliative care is extremely important for BUPA especially for people living in our care homes who are often approaching the end of life. We are delighted to be able to work with Marie Curie, the National Council for Palliative Care and for dementia on these three year projects that we expect to make a long-lasting contribution to the care of residents who live in our care homes.”Professor John Ellershaw, clinical director of palliative care at the Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute, said: “The institute, which is the first of its kind in the country, has long been recognised as a centre of excellence in palliative care research. These projects have the potential to make a real difference to the care of people at the end of their lives.”-ends-For further press information, please contact:Thomas CookPress OfficerBUPA Corporate CommunicationsTel: 020 7656 2638Email: [email protected] to editors:· BUPA is the UK market leader in health and care with a strong international presence.

(Image courtesy of the SouthPasadenan.com)A federal judge has formally approved a settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the mother of an “ER” actress who was fatally shot by police who were sent to her South Pasadena home in 2018 to conduct a wellness check, court papers show.Vanessa Marquez’s mother, Delia McElfresh, filed suit last August in Los Angeles federal court against the city of South Pasadena, its former police chief and other officers, disputing law enforcement’s assertion that the 49-year-old actress was shot when she brandished what officers believed to be a gun.South Pasadena City Attorney Theresa Highsmith said the parties agreed to a $450,000 settlement, most of which will come from the city’s litigation risk pool. A federal judge last week permanently dismissed the case.“Any loss of life is tragic,” South Pasadena Mayor Diana Mahmud said in a prepared statement regarding the settlement.The federal suit sought unspecified damages, but a claim filed against the city in 2019 as a precursor to a lawsuit initially filed in Superior Court last June sought $20 million in damages, alleging wrongful death, battery and other violations.Marquez, best known for her roles as a nurse in the NBC medical drama “ER,” had a history of seizures. McElfresh contended that her daughter was shot “when she was not facing the officers, when the officers were a safe distance away from her, and when there was no imminent threat of serious injury or death to the officers or others,” according to the suit.The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office concluded that the officers acted in self-defense, saying Marquez pointed what appeared to be a handgun at them after they responded to her residence on an emergency medical call.The weapon turned out to be a BB-type gun that resembled a semi- automatic handgun.“She was suffering from some problems, (an) eating disorder,” Sgt. Joe Mendoza of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told reporters at the scene. “When they (officers) arrived, she was suffering a seizure.”Sheriff’s officials who assisted with the investigation said a county mental health clinician was with South Pasadena officers at the scene, and they spoke with Marquez “for over an hour and a half in an attempt to offer her medical care. She then armed herself with a handgun and pointed it at the officers, at which time an officer-involved shooting occurred.”In addition to her role as nurse Wendy Goldman on “ER” from 1994-97, Marquez appeared in the 1988 film “Stand and Deliver” and had guest roles on the TV series “Seinfeld,” “Melrose Place,” “Nurses” and “Wiseguy.”She made headlines in 2017 when she took to Twitter to accuse former “ER” star George Clooney of blacklisting her from the show for speaking out about harassment on the set.“Women who don’t play the game lose career. I did,” she wrote.She alleged she was racially and sexually harassed on the set.Clooney denied having her barred from the show, telling E! News he “had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted.” Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

first_img TAGS  Pinterest Pinterest Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 22, 2021 Local NewsBusiness OrasiLabs Experiences Strong Momentum With Growth of Customer Base WhatsAppcenter_img Twitter Facebook Twitter WhatsApp ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– Orasi, a DevSecOps innovator accelerating software application delivery and adoption through automation, announces today its virtual training platform, OrasiLabs, continues to experience exponential new customer growth. After launching OrasiLabs in 2020, newly signed customers over the past couple of quarters include leaders in healthcare, insurance, software, training and more such as Parkland Health and Hospital System, Alteryx, Neotys, Afine Cyber Security, Innotek, MicroCAD Training and Consulting, and Capitalize Consulting. “We are proud to be working with such respected brands in their various fields including ISVs that provide training,” said David Hand, VP of Orasi. “There’s no question that the COVID-19 pandemic quickly forced many companies into a virtual Learning format for their training. With our expertise and sophisticated platform, we were able to ease that transition for them, allowing them to consistently deliver superior, cost-effective and engaging hands-on training without missing a beat.” The global pandemic indeed has had a seismic effect on how businesses work, teach and learn. According to a recent Training Industry, Inc. survey ( Training in the Time of COVID: How Learning and Development Is Responding ) in which learning and development professionals were polled across a swath of industries, virtual training has risen dramatically over the past year. Whereas pre-COVID, 52 percent of training was virtual, that number is now at 72 percent. Orasi Customer Growth For independent software vendors providing such training services, studies show the SaaS market in general growing at 30 percent a year. “We had to rethink many of the ways we conduct our business given the state of the world and the current economy. OrasiLabs allowed us to create a much more effective training setup workflow in the ‘new normal’ we were forced to deal with when moving entirely to online training during this time,” says Lara Olsen, Training Coordinator and an AEC Applications Specialist, MicroCAD Training and Consulting. “For our virtual setup, I used to juggle eight physical computers that required VPN access and six virtual computers between all our trainers and classes, which was difficult and time consuming. We went from using two different training platforms that were unreliable and expensive to OrasiLabs’s single platform which is very easy to use, manage, and scale. Now we can offer better training to more people in a more efficient and successful manner. OrasiLabs is a very cost-effective solution for us and will help us grow this part of our business which is no doubt here to stay.” OrasiLabs delivers cloud-native, elastic environments with reusable templates on a scalable platform that can accommodate organizations of any size. OrasiLabs experts work directly with customers to build real-world scenarios and other strategies into the training programs that are proven to increase knowledge retention.

These states posted annual increases in their overall delinquency rate in July: Vermont (+0.5%); New Hampshire (+0.2%); Minnesota (+0.1%); and Iowa (+0.1%).3.8% of home mortgages nationally were in some stage of delinquencies that month—down from 4.1% last July and the lowest July figure in more than 20 years. Historically, the share of delinquent mortgages in July peaked in 2010 at 11.1%. The overall delinquency rate since March 2018 for each month has been lower than during the pre-crisis period of 2000 through 2006, when the rate average 4.7%.The serious delinquency rate, which is defined as 90 days or more past due, including loans in foreclosure, was 1.3% in July. That is down year-over-year from 1.6%, and was also lower than the 1.5% average from the pre-crisis period of 2000-2006.The foreclosure inventory rate—the share of mortgages in some stage of the foreclosure process—was 0.4% in July, which is down from July 2018’s 0.5%.
