I recently commented on how FTSE 100 peer Taylor Wimpey has continued to sell houses despite the outbreak of Covid-19 and subsequent concerns over an economic meltdown emerging. Fortunately this share from Britain’s second-tier share index keeps on growing revenues, too.Vistry said last week that it had booked 212 gross private reservations since the lockdown a month ago. This has created 132 reservations net of cancellations. The Kent company added that “our levels of website traffic and prospects remain strong, an indication of the continued underlying demand”.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…A top ISA stockDemand for new homes remains strong because of a shortage of properties entering the market. It’s a phenomenon that could receive further support further down the line. If economic conditions worsen, existing homeowners may think twice about putting their properties on the market.In other good news last week, Vistry announced that it was putting its people back to work on construction projects next week. It’s a development that’ll help the FTSE 250 firm get closer to its planned production target of 6,000 new homesteads each year.Profits set to soar?Vistry’s share price has slumped 45% since the stock market meltdown kicked off in late February. It’s a fall that came in tandem with brokers slashing their near-term earnings expectations for the housebuilder.However, City analysts still expect the business to generate decent profits growth in 2020. It’s a reflection of that robust underlying demand caused by Britain’s whopping homes shortage. A 14% annual bottom-line rise is predicted for this year. Another 24% earnings improvement is anticipated in 2021, too.7.5% dividend yields!Of course, the UK and global economies are in uncharted waters with regards to the coronavirus crisis. Big questions over infection rates, the timing and the scale of lockdown lifting, and their subsequent implications on economic conditions and the housing market will remain in play for some time yet. And Vistry, of course should be prepared for a fresh furlough of its construction staff should, as many health experts are tipping, a secondary wave of infections emerge later this year.I’d argue, though, that the FTSE 250 firm’s valuations more that reflect the possibility of current earnings forecasts being blown off course. At current prices it carries a forward price-to-earnings (or P/E) ratio of around 7 times. This is well inside the widely-regarded bargain watermark of 10 times and below.Moreover, there’s plenty for income investors to toast Vistry for currently. Those recent trading problems mean that brokers expect the annual payout to drop in 2020. But the builder still carries a gigantic 5.4% yield. Besides, a return to dividend growth next year means that the yield marches up to 7.5%. This share is clearly not without risks, though at current prices it’s one I’d happily buy for my own ISA.center_img 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.

Got £750 to invest? Here are my 2 best cheap shares to buy now!

first_imgGot £750 to invest? Here are my 2 best cheap shares to buy now! Image source: Getty Images. FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge 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.

I have an odd personality quirk: I prefer not to buy and own things. For instance, I don’t own a house (but my wife does). Also, I’ve never owned a car (but I’ve driven company cars). Most of my treasured possessions are ancient. For example, I keep patching up my 25-year-old walking boots to keep them going. Thus, when I receive any sudden windfalls, I rarely have any immediate use for them. Generally, I give any spare money to my wife to spend or save, or I invest into cheap shares for a passive income.I’ll invest £750 into cheap sharesLast weekend, I had a modest windfall when I won $1,000 (over £720) in an online poker game. I decided to round this to £750 to buy cheap shares. As a veteran value investor, I scanned the FTSE 100 index over the past year, looking for laggards. Here are two stocks I like today.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 shares #1: GlaxoSmithKlineI’ve owned a stake in pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) for almost three decades. As my largest personal shareholding, GSK has been a big disappointment of late. Over the past 12 months, GSK has been among the Footsie’s worst performers. In fact, it’s ranked #96 out of 101 FTSE 100 shares since 19 March 2020 (just before the market bottomed on 23 March). GSK is down almost a tenth (9.7%) over 12 months, versus a 30.2% gain for the index. Nevertheless, as a buyer of cheap shares, I welcome the chance to invest after price falls.At last year’s peak, the GSK share price hit a high of 1,857p on 24 January 2020. On Friday, shares changed hands for 1,299p. That’s a collapse of three-tenths (30%) in 14 months. I know there are worries about GSK’s forthcoming separation into two separate listed companies. And GSK boss Dame Emma Walmsley has hinted that the group will cut its long-established cash dividend of 80p a share.Even so, I think anxiety about GSK’s future might be overdone. Right now, GSK stock trades on a price-to-earnings ratio of 11.4 and an earnings yield of 8.8%. The dividend yield of 6.2% a year is almost double that of the FTSE 100. With GSK looking undervalued on these fundamentals, I’ll keep buying these cheap shares for a juicy passive income.A great business at a 20% discountFor the record, 92 of the 101 shares currently in the FTSE 100 index have gained since 19 March 2020. Still, it genuinely surprises me that Unilever (LSE: ULVR) stock is among the stragglers. Shares in the Anglo-Dutch Goliath are down 2.4% over 12 months. At its peak in 2020, the Unilever share price was riding high at 4,944p on 14 October. Today, the shares trade at 3,974p — down 970p in five months. That’s a slide of almost a fifth (19.6%), which indicates to me that Unilever stock may have been dumped in the ‘cheap shares’ bargain bin.Globally, 2.5bn people use Unilever products each day. And because Unilever is a powerhouse in FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods), its stock generally commands a premium rating. But, like Warren Buffett, I don’t mind paying a fair price to buy into a great business. On Friday, ULVR stock traded on a price-to-earnings ratio of 22 and an earnings yield of 4.5%. The current dividend yield of 3.7% is ahead of the wider FTSE 100. Hence, as a value investor, I’d be happy to buy these discounted shares today!

Poorly designed sites hinder journalists

Invisible Grantmakers 2020 published

first_img  968 total views,  2 views today Social Partnership Marketing has published the latest annual edition of its Invisible Grantmakers series.The series identifies and profiles significant grant-making trusts that have escaped inclusion in the most widely-used trust directories and therefore remain ‘invisible’ to the majority of fundraisers.Compiled primarily as an aid to charities and fundraisers that are already actively raising grants from trusts and foundations, Invisible Grantmakers 2020 details 100 trusts, with a collective income of over £80 million per annum, that are distributing funds to a wide range of charitable causes.The trusts are both new and well established and have an average age of 17 years, with none featuring before in earlier editions. Altogether, they have an income of over £80m, and collectively distributed over £12m in grants last year.Each entry in Invisible Grantmakers outlines the trust’s giving preferences, with reference to past grants and stated giving criteria. The latest income, assets and grant figures are also reported, together with trustee names and full contact details. High net worth trustees are identified too, as are trustee links to other charities.Editor Robert Pike said:“As all trust fundraisers will know, the Charity Commission register of charities is a great information resource, but it doesn’t yield up all its secrets readily. It’s fine for checking on yesterday’s new registrations, or charities in the top income bands, but for keeping tabs on older trusts that suddenly receive a large bequest, or on grantmakers that may have been misleadingly coded, it seems there is no alternative to persistent and repeated monitoring of trusts on an item by item basis. For over twenty years we have been ferreting out nuggets of information in this way and squirrelling them away in our reports: this nod to the natural world has seemed especially appropriate during the quiet of lockdown!”The limited edition report is available as a PDF (£125) or as a hard copy (£132).

Pitching firepower leads Baseball to sweep over Lamar

first_imgFacebook Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award ReddIt TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina. If you walk by my desk in the newsroom you’ll immediately know I’m Post Malone’s biggest fan. I’m always looking for a good story to tell! If you have any story ideas, feel free to reach out! Go Panthers! TCU wants ex-professor’s discrimination suit dismissed The first Lamar batter to reach base was on a two-out error in the fifth. Green’s first hit was allowed on a lead-off single by Chad McKinney in the ninth to break up the no-hitter, but he was erased on a double play ball.The Horned Frogs got on the scoreboard early in the game when Humphreys scored off of Boulware’s two-out bases-loaded single in the bottom of the second. Balta scored off a two-out single from Humphreys to increase the lead 2-0.A pitching change in the fourth would not stop Balta’s power. Jack Dallas was called to replace Jason Blanchard, but Balta hit a three-run home run to extend the Frogs’ lead even deeper to 5-0, scoring him, Boulware and Watson.“A.J. had some really good hits today,” Schlossnagle said. “I don’t know where we’d be without him.”Lamar’s second pitching change brought Taylor Rich on to the mound; however, it was all TCU in the fifth as the final six runs were scored.The bases were loaded with two outs but Batla’s single into right field drove in Boulware and Oviedo. Junior center fielder Johnny Rizer’s RBI-single into center field extended the lead to 9-0. Wanhanen’s two-run single scored Landestoy and Rizer.“I still think we can be better and we’re gonna have to be when the level of competition raises back in conference play next weekend,” Schlossnagle said as TCU prepares to host West Virginia starting Friday night in Lupton Stadium at 6:30 p.m. Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU + posts Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Twitter Twitter printLodolo, TCU defeat Lamar, 2-0TCU Baseball won their fourth consecutive ballgame Friday evening with a 2-0 victory over Lamar behind an impressive performance from sophomore pitcher Nick Lodolo.Lodolo got the nod on the mound Friday night and registered a strong performance. Sitting at fourth in the Big 12 before the contest, he added 10 strikeouts to bring his season total to 78.“I’ve preached all season that our strength was going to need to be in our starting pitching,” Head Coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “I thought we had some really good at-bats tonight.”Junior left fielder Josh Watson got the scoring started for the Horned Frogs with a two-out home run to right field in the third inning. It was the Frogs’ first hit of the night from someone besides senior right fielder A.J. Balta.The Cardinals threatened in the sixth inning as shortstop Phillip Ingram and first baseman Robin Adams were able to advance to second and third. Lodolo’s eighth strikeout of the contest retired the side and got the Frogs out of a streak-threatening jam.Lamar’s Tanner Driskell prevented any significant offensive attack from the Horned Frogs all night. He threw 60 strikes and allowed only five hits on the game. The only extra-base hit he allowed came on Watson’s homer.Chet Jones replaced Driskell in the seventh inning after he hit sophomore catcher Zach Humphreys for TCU’s seventh baserunner of the night. The Horned Frogs put pressure on him immediately.Jones faced Wanhanen first and surrendered a single to him as Humphreys advanced to second. Boulware’s first hit of the night scored Humphreys from second to extend TCU’s lead to 2-0. Jones settled down in the eighth inning and kept the Horned Frogs scoreless.Fellow sophomore Cal Coughlin replaced Lodolo in the eighth inning. Lodolo finished the evening with five allowed hits in 7.1 innings pitched. Coughlin retired the first two batters he faced and earned the first save of his career.“I was locating my fastball on both sides of the plate,” Lodolo said. “I had a good breaking ball tonight and could stick that in the batters mind.”In TCU’s current four-game win streak, the Frogs have focused on three things: pitching, defense and timely hitting, according to Schlossnagle.“These guys know where we are in the season and know what has to happen for us to play late into June,” Schlossnagle said. “I wouldn’t make too much of it yet. Hopefully, we can continue to play well.”The shutout victory extends TCU’s current streak of scoreless baseball to 34.1 innings.“We’re not giving as many free bases as before,” Lodolo said. “We’re all pitching well and attacking the zone.”Three home runs power Horned Frogs past LamarTCU held on to take game 2 of the series against Lamar on Saturday, as a Wanhanen 2-run home run proved to be the difference in the Frogs’ 4-3 win.Sophomore Jake Eissler got his first start of the year and dominated the Lamar lineup. Eissler retired the first 15 batters he faced before LF Avery George flipped a bloop single into right field to lead off the 6th inning.Eissler then picked off George at first before getting a strikeout and a flyout as the right-hander faced the minimum in his solid six innings of work on Saturday. Eissler also struck out a career-high 12 batters.Offensively, the Frogs used the long ball as they did on Friday night as well. Wanhanen’s 2-run homer, his first of the season, came in the 7th inning, giving TCU (26-18) a then 4-0 lead in the game.Michael Landestoy and Watson also hit solo home runs to lead off the second and fourth innings, respectively.That would be all for TCU though, as Lamar starter Noah Sills and reliever Chet Jones kept the rest of the Horned Frogs’ lineup quiet.First-year Caleb Sloan went back out to the mound for the 9th inning after working a scoreless frame in the 8th. Sloan retired the first batter but walked the next two hitters.Schlossnagle went to the bullpen, and called on Cal Coughlin for his second appearance of the weekend.Coughlin walked the first batter he faced and suddenly Lamar (15-33) had the bases loaded with just one out in the 9th.Coughlin, though, got Robin Adames to bounce into an RBI groundout, which was followed by a Cole Coker two-RBI single to trim the TCU lead to 4-3.The sophomore right-hander barred down and struck out DH Logan Lejeune to end the ballgame, giving Coughlin his second save in as many nights.Green’s one-hitter leads Horned Frogs to sweep LamarTCU swept the series against Lamar with an 11-0 win Sunday at Lupton Stadium with the help of sophomore pitcher Haylen Green.Green became the fourth pitcher in school history to play nine innings with a one-hitter.Green had a no-hitter in a seven-inning game as a first-year in high school so the idea of it happening again in today’s game ran through his mind.“It popped in my head a couple of times but it was more of like a ‘Why are you thinking about that? Just stop’ because that’s how you jinx it,” Green said. “I was just going one inning at a time, one pitch at a time.”center_img ReddIt TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Linkedin Facebook Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Robbie Vaglio What to watch during quarantine Snow temporarily stepping down as honors dean Previous articleSophomore pitching duo earns national praiseNext articleWilliams earns NBA Combine invitation, draws praise from Houston Rockets’ scout Robbie Vaglio RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Courtesy of TCU Baseball Twitter Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Linkedinlast_img read more
