3 reasons why this underdog FTSE stock is on my investing radar

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Manika Premsingh | Saturday, 11th July, 2020 | More on: MTRO 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. Something’s up with financials. Changes at the top are visible for a number of them. Earlier this week, Lloyds Bank’s CEO resigned. Insurance biggie Aviva’s CEO stepped down the same day. Now, another FTSE 100 stock has announced changes. Challenger Metro Bank (LSE: MTRO) has appointed a new chair, veteran banker Robert Sharpe. Changes at the topThis is one reason the investor in me is now looking more closely at Metro Bank. It’s part of a bigger leadership change underway. Earlier this year, a new CEO, Daniel Frumkin, took charge. Both personnel decisions are linked to last year’s accounting mess-up. Following this, its founder and then chair, Vernon Hill, had stepped down. Next, the CEO, Craig Donaldson, quit. With both positions now filled, it appears that the company is ready to start a new chapter, putting behind 2019’s turbulence. 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…Rising share price for this FTSE stockThe second reason this FTSE stock is on my radar is the investor interest in it. Going by its stock price movements, it’s clear that investors are positive on MTRO. In July so far, its share price is the highest it has been since February. If this trend is maintained, it will be the second straight month of gains for Metro Bank. This is quite the comeback after the share price plunged in May.Recently, its CEO increased his stockholding by 500,000 shares. I think a share purchase by management can be a vote of confidence in the organisation. This combined with a sustained rise in share price in the recent past, is positive for the bank.Not half bad trading updateFinally, I think the stock’s recent trading update wasn’t all bad either. While no particular growth was possible in the present circumstances, Metro Bank did report marginal increase in deposits. The loans extended declined, but only marginally. While it didn’t detail its capital adequacy ratios, the update is positive on that front too. This doesn’t change the fact that MTRO may still be in precarious financial health. It made a loss last year and we’ll know the corona-damage to this year only when detailed results are out. Until such time, I’d refrain from guessing too much. Metro Bank has other challenges too. Recessions always drags down financials. There’s higher likelihood of more bad loans and slower deposit growth because of muted incomes and low interest rates. These squeeze banks from both sides. In any case, MTRO has big competition to contend with.I’m not buying MTRO as yet. Not in this uncertain scenario. But, with brand new leadership, investor faith in the stock, and its latest trading update, I’m keeping it on my radar. This FTSE stock may still be down, but it’s not out. 3 reasons why this underdog FTSE stock is on my investing radar “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Police suspected TCU players in assault almost immediately

first_imgThe three students were walking down Lowden Street  “carrying a case of Keystone Light beer” when one student was “hit in the back of the leg with a full can of beer than had been thrown at him.” The students told police they turned and saw “three individuals standing in the yard,” according to the affidavit.One individual in the yard was described as “a black male” who was “wearing a TCU backpack (the type of which is issued to TCU athletes),” according to the affidavit. That same suspect approached one of the students and hit him “with a closed fist to his left temple,” causing the student to fall “on the ground in the fetal position.”The suspects proceeded to kick and hit the student laying on the ground until one of them “said ‘Get the beer’.” According the affidavit, a suspect described as an “Asian-pacific male with big hair,” picked up the beer, and the three suspects “ran south through an alley.”TCU Police officer Joe Chambers said when he arrived on the scene the victim who had been laying on the ground told the officer he “felt pain in his shoulder and face” and “immediately said, ‘and they took my beer,’” according to the affidavit.That student was taken to the Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital emergency room where he was treated for a “facial contusion, forearm contusion, left shoulder pain and joint inflammation,” according to the affidavit.Officers found “one bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin, one bottle of Heineken beer and a pair of red and black sunglasses,” which they believed belonged to the suspects, according to the affidavit.A “black Apple iPhone that rang while officers were at the scene,” was also found. According to the affidavit the name “Mike Tuaua” appear “on the caller ID.”Officers spoke with a nearby resident that said “four football players arrived at his party uninvited,” according to the affidavit.Given this information, along with the athletic back pack and the name on the caller id, “officers checked the TCU football roster” which “lists the name ‘Mike Tuaua,’” according to the affidavit.Tuaua was “contacted through university officials” and asked to call Detective S.L. Horner of the Fort Worth Police Department, according to the affidavit. Tuaua’s attorney arranged a meeting for Sept. 6, according to the affidavit.Tuaua told Horner that Tuaua had gone to a party that night with Pettis-Wilson along with two other men he called “Nam” and “Im,” according to the affidavit. When asked why he left the party Tuaua said “they just wanted to leave because there were no girls present,” according to the affidavit.Tuaua said “he heard yelling and saw Petties-Wilson surrounded by three males, and they were pushing and shoving.” According to the affidavit Tuaua “ran over to stop the fight.” He told Horner “he saw the pack of beer but does not know what happened to it,” and that “he does not drink that beer,” according to the affidavit.

Bail for each was set at $15,000, according to the affidavits.TCU responded to the arrests: “It is disappointing to learn about these students’ alleged behavior, which fails to live up to the expectations of our community. Texas Christian University expects its students to behave in an ethical manner, abide by campus policies and adhere to state and federal law. The students who are under investigation will also face a charge of violating the University Code of Student Conduct, the results of which are independent and separate from any legal charges they may face.”Petties-WilsonVoicemails seeking comment from Tuaua and Petties-Wilson were not returned Monday night.The incident occurred Sept. 4 around 11:30 p.m. near the 2700 block of West Lowden Street and lasted “thirty to forty-five seconds,” according to the affidavit.

Daily newspaper allowed to bring out first issue after one-month enforced delay

first_img Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa to go further RSF_en After a one-month delay imposed by the authorities, the first issue of the daily newspaper Al-Ghad (“Tomorrow” in Arabic) was published today by the opposition party of the same name. It had been on the verge of coming out yesterday but was blocked at the last minute by the authorities, who finally approved its appearance today.In the issue, the leader of the Al-Ghad party, Ayman Nour, who has been in prison since 21 January, said he would be a candidate in the coming presidential election. February 6, 2021 Find out more News March 9, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Daily newspaper allowed to bring out first issue after one-month enforced delay Follow the news on Egypt Organisation Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information January 22, 2021 Find out more EgyptMiddle East – North Africa February 1, 2021 Find out more News News ——————————————————10.02.2005New opposition daily suspended as first issue was being printedReporters Without Borders called on the Egyptian authorities today to reverse the “arbitrary” decision taken on 8 February to block publication of a new daily newspaper called Al-Ghad (“Tomorrow” in Arabic), which was to have been brought out by a new political party of the same name.”We condemn this decision by the High Council for the Press to suspend the newspaper of the first opposition party to be authorized in the last 20 years,” the press freedom organization said, arguing that the newspaper should not be made suffer because charges were brought against Dr. Ayman Nour, the party’s president. Nour has been accused of “forging official documents” and has been detained.”The decision to suspend the newspaper is directly linked to political considerations and raises doubts about Egypt’s desire to embark on a durable democratic process and establish structures in which the news media are allowed freedom of expression,” Reporters Without Borders said.The authorities should either explain their decision to suspend Al-Ghad or allow it to publish, the organization added.Reached by telephone, Al-Ghad editor Ibrahim Issa told Reporters Without Borders he was not optimistic. “If the authorities initially gave us permission to publish, it’s because they thought we would be under their control, but now that they have seen our editorial line, I don’t think they will again give us permission to publish our newspaper,” Issa said.The Al-Ghad party received permission to publish a newspaper on 28 December. The first issue was already in preparation at the state-owned Al-Ahram press when the High Council gave orders to stop the printing because the newspaper had been suspended. Staff at the press informed the newspaper, which has still not received any explanation from the authorities.The first issue included an article by Nour written from his cell, in which he described the sequence of events since his arrest on 29 January. Other articles called for amendments to the Egyptian constitution and criticised the method of election in Egypt.Al-Ghad’s editors have little hope of being able to publish even if they are successful in the courts. As a result of a complaint brought by the agriculture ministry, the Labour Party’s daily Al-Shaab is still suspended despite an appeal court decision on 23 December authorising it to resume publishing.last_img read more

Utility charge totally dishonest – Collins

first_img‘They are also proposing to introduce a licensing tax for people who have septic tanks’COUNTY Limerick TD Niall Collins is seeking clarity on the proposed household utility charge and has accused Fine Gael of introducing dishonest backdoor taxes in its first 100 days in government.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Part of the four year recovery plan was to introduce a water metering programme in every home – instead the new government has decided on a flat rate Household Utility Charge which flies in the face of what Fine Gael told the people – it will be the first of a whole host of backdoor taxes”.The local TD argues that Fine Gael deceived voters during the general election campaign.“This debate is only beginning and they are being completely dishonest with the people. They said in their election campaign there would be no more taxes, but there are a whole load more backdoor taxes and they are also proposing to introduce a licensing tax for people who have septic tanks”.Concerned about the manner in which the charge is being introduced he says the reason that a property tax has not been introduced is that it would have to levied on an equitable basis.“It’s very difficult to levy it across the board for people in totally different circumstances, unemployed people and people with negative equity.“A lot of questions still need to be answered. How much will it be? How will it be levied? Who will pay it? Will there be exemptions for pensioners, the unemployed and those who cannot afford to pay? Will there be a waiver scheme? Could the Minister provide detail on the scheme, primarily, how much it will cost?”In a Dáil debate on the matter last week, Deputy Collins called on the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government Phil Hogan to provide clarity on the proposal:“I would like him to elaborate on the new flat rate tax he has proposed because it has slipped in under the radar – there is scant detail on the scheme and we want clarity as there is confusion, and there has been a muddying of the waters on a site property tax, the introduction of water charges and the new charge”.Speaking in the Dail Minister Hogan said he will bring proposals to the Government in the near future on the legislative and administrative requirements necessary to implement the charge.“It is my intention that the revenues from the charge will support the provision of locally based services and, in turn, reduce local government’s requirement for Exchequer support for the funding of such services”.The Minister also said that Fianna Fail had negotiated with the EU/IMF to introduce a household charge while in government.

But just because the prices went up does not mean sales went up. In fact, while national median prices rose almost 9 percent (to $285,000) in February, the number of homes for sale dropped more than 11 percent from January and were flat compared to a year ago. It was the twenty-ninth consecutive month inventory suffered, while prices keep going up.Only six of 73 metros saw sales grow by double digits from last year, the report said. Louisville led the nation in year-over-year sales growth, up 25 percent, followed by Greenville, South Carolina, which was up 18 percent.Inventory dropped most in New York State, where three metros saw downswings compared to last year. Inventory in Rochester and Buffalo dropped 40 percent and in Albany, 30 percent. Atlanta also posted a 33 percent decline in inventory.As availability and affordability continue to constrain the market, interest in buying a home is humming along nicely. Time on the market for homes sold in February was 53 days, a week faster than a year earlier. That’s just the average. In Seattle, half of all homes pending sales closed in just eight days—four days faster than it was a year earlier. Denver and San Jose reported closings in nine and 10 median days on the market, respectively. Homes in Oakland and San Francisco spent two weeks on the market.The most competitive market in February was San Jose, where 83 percent of homes sold above list price. Three-quarters of homes for sale in San Francisco did the same. Oakland, Seattle, and Tacoma also saw homes close significantly above asking price. Overall, Redfin reported, 21 percent of homes that sold in February went for more than their list price, nationally. That number is up 20 percent from last year. The median value of off-market homes was $283,300, a 9 percent uptick percent from last year. Almost two-thirds of homes on the market in February were priced above their Redfin Estimate value.“Mortgage rates pushed upwards in February to the highest levels in nearly three years as home prices increased by their fastest pace in nearly four years,” said Redfin chief economist Nela Richardson. “A growing economy, healthy buyer demand, and low inventory drove the ramp up in prices last month. Combining even slightly higher rates with price growth this strong will make it even more challenging for first-time buyers to find affordable homes to buy this year. The good news for sellers is modest rate increases are unlikely to curtail buyer demand. Just 6 percent of respondents to a survey commissioned by Redfin said they would cancel their home buying plans if rates rose above 5 percent.” On the other side of the country, and on the other side of the numbers, sales in Long Island saw the largest decline in sales since last year, falling 33 percent. Home sales in Minneapolis and Miami also dropped, each by 13 percent.

Fourth nor’easter this month could hit Northeast next week

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Spring is finally here next week — but Mother Nature may not be done battering the Northeast with rain, snow and wind.Another nor’easter — the fourth storm this month — could slam into the region just as the season is about to change.The storm is moving slowly from the Rockies and could bring severe weather to the central and southern U.S. on Monday.That could mean more snow for the Northern Plains.By Wednesday or Thursday, the I-95 corridor could see the worst of the storm.Two weather models have the storm system barreling north on different tracks.A European forecast said heavy snow is possible more inland from West Virginia to upstate New York, while the American model said the storm will be more coastal — slamming into New Jersey, Long Island and perhaps New York City.If the latter model proves true, Washington, D.C., will be mostly spared.Meanwhile, a mudslide in Malibu, California, Thursday morning closed down a road, potentially for several more days.Storms also brought as much as 16 inches of snow to the Sierra Nevada Mountains over the last 24 hours.Snow and high-wind alerts have been issued in 18 states from California all the way to West Virginia.With two storm systems looming, the first of those on Friday morning is stretching all the way from the Gulf Coast to the Upper Plains, bringing showers and thunderstorms to the south and more heavy snow in the north.By Friday afternoon and evening, showers and severe storms are expected from Missouri to Louisiana. Some of the rainstorms may contain damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are possible.Up north, snowfall will spread from the Dakotas into Iowa.By Saturday, that storm system will weaken but still bring mixed precipitation from Illinois to West Virginia. The Southeast may see some stronger storms as well.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
