Shares to buy: 2 FTSE 250 stocks I’d snap up now

first_imgShares to buy: 2 FTSE 250 stocks I’d snap up now Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Image source: Getty Images The FTSE 250 index can be a source of lucrative investment opportunities. This index – which contains the largest 250 stocks on the London Stock Exchange outside the FTSE 100 – is home to many great companies that are growing rapidly.Here, I’m going to highlight two FTSE 250 shares I’d buy today. Both have momentum at present and I think there’s a good chance they’ll generate strong returns for investors over the long term.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 FTSE 250 stock for the digital revolutionOne of my top picks in the FTSE 250 right now is Kainos (LSE: KNOS). It’s an under-the-radar UK technology company that helps governments and businesses with digital transformation (cloud computing, data management, automation, etc). Currently, it serves customers in over 20 countries.Kainos’ most recent full-year results, for the 12 months ended 31 March, were very strong. Revenue was up 31% to £235m while adjusted pre-tax profit jumped 124% to £57.1m. Diluted earnings per share came in at 36.8p, up 122% year-on-year. These results represented the 11th consecutive year of growth.This strong growth isn’t the only thing I like about this company. Another is its level of profitability. Over the last five years, return on capital employed has averaged 43%, which is very impressive. Additionally, the company has a strong balance sheet.One risk to be aware of here is that the stock’s valuation is quite high. Currently, Kainos sports a forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of about 38. This valuation doesn’t leave much room for error. If growth stalls, the stock’s likely to fall.Overall however, I see a lot of appeal in this FTSE 250 stock. With the shares currently experiencing a bit of a pullback, I think it’s a good time to be building a position.Another top tech stockAnother FTSE 250 stock I’d buy right now is Computacenter (LSE: CCC), which operates in a similar field to Kainos. It also provides technology solutions to businesses and government organisations. Its customers include the likes of Linklaters, UBS, Hays, and Costa Coffee.Computacenter has also posted strong results. Its full-year 2020 results, posted in March, showed a 8% increase in revenue, a 47% increase in profit before tax, and a 50% increase in diluted earnings per share. Meanwhile, in a Q1 trading update posted in late April, the company said it was seeing strong demand for its services and that it expects 2021 to be another good year for profits.Like Kainos, CCC is a high-quality company. It’s highly profitable (five-year average return on capital employed of 21%) and it has a strong balance sheet. The company is also a reliable dividend payer.A risk to note here is that demand for IT solutions could potentially stall in the short term, due to the fact that many businesses brought spending forward last year during the pandemic. However, I think the overall risk/reward proposition here is attractive. At its current valuation (the P/E is under 20), I see this FTSE 250 stock as a buy.

Fiji celebrate huge upset with touching song and classy gesture

first_imgMonday Nov 26, 2018 Fiji celebrate huge upset with touching song and classy gesture Fiji beat France for the first time ever on Saturday, claiming a well-deserved win over Les Blues for the first time in ten outings. Their post-match celebration, as seen countless times in Sevens, was beautiful to witness. ADVERTISEMENTFiji, who have a number of their players playing throughout France, played some stunning rugby to beat France for the first time in 60 years, less than a year out from the World Cup.Bordeaux-Begles’ Semi Radradra and Toulon’s Josua Tuisova both scored outstanding tries for the pacific islanders, while Guilhem Guirado crossed twice for the French.Coach John McKee said post-match: “It’s a massive achievement. We told each other this week that if we beat France we would make it into the pantheon of Fijian rugby.”And while the win will give Fiji their highest ever world ranking, they have also received plaudits around the world for their humility, as photos were shared of them cleaning the changeroom post [email protected] are something else:Snatched their 1st win EVER over France.And then cleaned up the change rooms after themselves.Kudos 👍ADVERTISEMENT(pic c/- @FIJI7sRugby) pic.twitter.com/oZ2nrBEJau— #RugbyToulon (@rugbytoulon_) November 25, 2018We’ve seen and heard about a few other teams doing the same, but that doesn’t take away from the effort after what was a huge upset win away from home.While France had narrowly lost to South Africa in the dying seconds then beaten Argentina 28-13 a week later, this shock loss brings them crashing down to earth, as emphasised by Mathieu Bastareaud after the final whistle.ADVERTISEMENTTV microphones caught his angry talk to his players, loosely translated from French as: “Who do we think we are? We beat Argentina and we think we’re something special. We have to start from scratch now and we’re at rock bottom. Because we’re pathetic, shameful, we have to be aware of that.”Flying Fijians Now Ranked 8th In The WorldAfter their historic victory over France and Argentina’s loss to Scotland, Fiji will be for the first time in history ranked 8th in the world with 77.95 points pic.twitter.com/bfe9ffM9N5— FIJI 7s Rugby (@FIJI7sRugby) November 25, 2018The final score in Paris was 21-14 to Fiji.After the match, the victors gathered in the middle of the field and were led by scrum half Frank Lomani in a beautiful rendition of a traditional song that can only make you love and respect the Fijians.Full match highlights:Watch Semi Radradra’s powerful try again here Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Chanukah celebration to bring awareness of religion

He wants to work in public relations after graduation. printThe TCU Hillel Jewish Student Foundation is hosting events throughout Chanukah to share and celebrate their faith with the community while fighting anti-Semitism.First-year student Viola Clark restarted the foundation to continue honoring her family’s background and to stay true to her faith.“I went to the Office of Religion and Spiritual Life, and they had a list of students who had identified themselves as Jewish,” said Clark. “So, I contacted those on the list and we had a dinner and discussed whether or not we wanted a Hillel.”Since then, the foundation made a mission statement and began meeting together to actively embrace their faith.The TCU Hillel Jewish Student Foundation meeting and enjoying a meal after reviving the foundation this school year. Photo courtesy of Viola ClarkClark said Assistant Professor of Dance Adam McKinney, who is also Jewish, helped create a way to connect with more students.“We need to build relationships with people across the idea of difference,” said McKinney.He said everyone is welcome to attend the events and hopes people realize Judaism and Christianity are more alike than they are different and that we all must interact peacefully with one other.The events are targeted to raise awareness in an effort to get students to be open about becoming Jewish allies and stand up against anti-Semitism.“You just don’t know when something could happen,” said Clark. “Just the other day a Jewish professor at Columbia University was targeted and had swastikas drawn on her walls in her office. It can be scary knowing that you could be targeted at any time over your religion.”Scott Langston, a religion professor, said he hopes students never think religious oppression is okay.“We have a mission here at TCU to make sure that when they leave here, they don’t leave ignorant people,” said Langston. “We want them to leave accepting and knowledgeable to all people.”He said in order for this to happen, students need to be educated in other religions so they will not believe stereotypes or misconceptions of people of other religions.The Menorah Project is a way to demonstrate solidarity with Jews. Students can print out an image of the menorah, an eight-branched sacred candelabrum, and tape it to their  windows or doors.Students can also take part in the third annual Chanukah party 4:30 p.m. Dec. 7 in Erma Lowe Hall. People from all religions are welcome to attend. The School for Classical and Contemporary Dance is hosting the party.The hosts said they hope there’s a good student turnout and that the celebration will be a national example that religious oppression isn’t welcome and the TCU community supports all religions.

Time and Policy to Heal New York Foreclosure Backlog

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Black Knight’s New Digital Solutions Next: HUD Releases Proposed Budget for 2020 The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Time and Policy to Heal New York Foreclosure Backlog Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The foreclosure crisis and ensuing zombie home invasion in New York has improved markedly in the last few years thanks to the passing of both time and policies. Foreclosure filings across the state are down 46 percent since 2013, according to a report from the state comptroller. Similarly, the number of pending foreclosure cases in the state is down by half since 2014.However, before the mood becomes too celebratory, New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli warned, “the foreclosure crisis is far from over,” and “New York must continue to support the programs and reforms that have helped homeowners avoid foreclosure and communities reduce blight caused by zombie properties.”After experiencing heightened foreclosures, a court backlog, and an onslaught of zombie properties—where the home becomes vacant before foreclosure is complete—New York responded with an ambush of new policies aimed at helping homeowners avoid foreclosure, helping courts process foreclosures, and helping return zombie properties to the land of the living.The state has enacted several changes to the foreclosure process in the courts. For example, it created the Vacant and Abandoned Property sector of the court to speed up judicial review when dealing with these properties. The foreclosure process has also been further standardized to ensure consistency and easier tracking. Another court-related change has to do with the transfer of deeds and titles in cases of divorce to help homeowners avoid foreclosure during or after divorce.Other changes New York made have to do with borrower communication, “primarily in the form of better and more consistent communication about the foreclosure process and homeowners’ rights and responsibilities,” according to the report.Also, in addition to working to expedite foreclosures in the case of vacant properties, New York has worked to eradicate zombie properties through the use of land banks, which are nonprofits that acquire zombie homes and work to “return them to productive use.” As of 2017, land banks had “acquired nearly 2,000 problem properties and returned $28.4 million in assessed value to the tax rolls,” according to the report. The state is set to add 10 more land banks.The state also created the New York State Community Restoration fund to purchase distressed mortgages in areas with high foreclosure rates with intent to either provide loan modification for borrowers or repair and sell the homes to new owners.With the help of these policies, the New York housing market has experienced improvement with the foreclosure rate falling in every part of the state over the past few years. In mid-2014, 18 counties in the state had foreclosure rates above 1 percent and four had a rate above 2 percent. As of mid-2018, only four counties had foreclosure rates above 1 percent, and 38 counties had rates below 0.50 percent, according to DiNapoli’s report.While acknowledging the significant improvements, DiNapoli sees potential threats on the horizon. “Housing advocates have warned that proposed cuts in State funding for homeowner protection programs could—if implemented—also undermine or even reverse the progress made,” DiNapoli said in his report. Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011. Previously, she served as managing editor of DS News and Southern Distinction, a regional lifestyle publication. Her work has appeared in a variety of print and online publications, including Consumers Digest, Dallas Style and Design, DS News and DSNews.com, MReport and theMReport.com.

John McCain’s casket is lying in state won’t be open to the public until 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, but that didn’t stop Frank Xavier Marcial and his wife from getting in line at 7:15 a.m.That’s the time they arrived in Phoenix after driving for more than seven hours from their home in California to come pay tribute to the longtime senator.“I wanted to give this incredible, great American my final respect and salute,” said Marcial, 66, an Army and National Guard veteran himself.“I wanted to give my spirit somehow to him for the suffering that he did in Hanoi and also for the equal suffering and belittling he endured in civilian life because he had no vices, as far as I’m concerned,” he said.Marcial was one of hundreds that lined up hours before the public viewing began.Caleb Webb, 24, got into line a little later, at around 9:30, but after a similarly long night having just finished a night shift at his hotel job nearby. Webb said he is from Cochise County in the southeastern corner of the state and he relished the five times he got a chance to meet McCain when the senator came to his county.“One thing that always stood out to me was he always knew my name,” said Webb, who was wearing a pin from McCain’s 2008 presidential bid, in spite of being a Democrat himself.“I felt like if there was any good day for it, today was going to be the day,” he said of the pin.“One important thing about him that a lot of people shouldn’t forget is that you can disagree as long as you’re not disagreeable,” Webb said.Kassandra Morales had already put in three hours waiting on line with her two young children when she spoke to ABC News, and she knew there were many more to come. And not just before she first goes past his casket.“This is my first stop today. I have three other kids in high school that I’m going to bring after school. They said that their hero was a rapper and that upset me. That’s not a hero. I want them to witness what a real hero is and show them what freedom means,” Morales said, noting that she already visited the mortuary that was holding McCain’s casket over the weekend to lay flowers and a flag.“He’s my hero. He’s been through a lot,” she said.She credits McCain with being the reason why she believes voting is important, having come from a family where voting wasn’t valued.“I never had anybody in my family who served, so for me he’s my veteran, my hero. He’s the person that I knew,” she said.One person who knew McCain personally was Joe Freedman, who interned for McCain back when he was a first-term congressman in the 1980s.Freedman has a decades-old picture of he and McCain on his phone and recalled one time when he said he was asked to drive the then-congressman to an event, but he was driving too fast.“I almost killed him! I almost killed us both. He was white-knuckling it and he said ‘Hey I want to get there alive,’” Freedman said, chuckling.“He was completely down to earth as a man and a person,” Freedman said.“All people were the same level as him. There was no caste system in John McCain’s life,” he said.Phoenix native Chasity Pullin likewise said that McCain exuded a relatability that drew her to him.“To me, I just felt like even though you may not have ever met John McCain you were able to relate to John McCain,” said Pullin.“I think this is a humbling experience for a lot of people,” she said.Pullin’s company, whose offices are nearby, offered to let employees leave to pay their respects for the day, but others had to go more out of their way to be there.Francis Rodgers, 64, extended a cross-country road trip by two days to be in Phoenix to pay tribute.“I went to Bobby Kennedy’s funeral 50 years ago and if you ask me, McCain accomplished as much as any of the Kennedys,” said Rodgers.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
