£1k to invest? I think this FTSE 100 stock could double your money

first_img£1k to invest? I think this FTSE 100 stock could double your money Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. 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. I’ll admit, for the past few years, I’ve been a seller of Centrica (LSE: CNA). The company’s falling earnings, rising costs, lack of direction and fleeing customers are all warning signs about the organisation’s health, in my opinion.However, recently, green shoots have started to appear. The latest trading update from the business shows that while all of the above pressures are still weighing on growth, customers are beginning to return.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…Returning customersCentrica’s total group customer account holdings increased by 214,000 in the four months to October, according to its trading update at the end of November.Overall, total UK customer accounts increased by 136,000 in the four-month period. Growth in services and home solutions more than offset a 107,000 reduction in energy supply accounts.On top of this increase, Centrica’s disposals are moving ahead. At the end of December, the company announced it had agreed to sell its 382 MW King’s Lynn combined cycle gas turbine power station to RWE Generation for £105m.So the company is making progress on its key objectives. However, analysts are still expecting the group to report a 50%+ decline in earnings for 2019.Growth returnsThe company will return to growth in 2020, according to analysts. The City has pencilled in earnings growth of 36% for 2020. That puts the stock on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 9.8 for 2020.This multiple looks attractive, but a year is a long time. Centrica needs to prove that the recovery reported towards the end of last year was not just a flash in the pan. Further positive updates would confirm the company’s recovery has taken hold.With that being the case, Centrica’s outlook is now starting to brighten for the first time in many years. It looks as if the market believes in the turnaround as well. The stock is up nearly 50% from its September low.Paid to waitOnly time will tell if the recovery will continue. Nevertheless, investors will be paid to wait for a comeback. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 5.4%. The payout is covered 1.4 times by earnings based on 2019 numbers, so unless Centrica’s full-year figures are much worse than expected, this distribution looks secure.Still, while the shares look deeply undervalued, this opportunity isn’t for the faint-hearted. Centrica’s has been struggling for the past five years and there’s no guarantee it has the right formula this time around.However, for investors willing to take on the risk here, the reward could be substantial. Centrica’s peers are trading at a median P/E of around 16.5.This suggests the stock could hit 165p based on current earnings projections over the next two years. Add in two years of dividends, and there’s a genuine chance the stock could produce a total return of 100% or more from current levels.

Charity shop staff training boosts Gift Aid income

Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: Gift Aid Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme Trading Training Charity shop staff receiving Gift Aid training Gift Aid IT specialists BMc Azurri have been piloting training sessions with charity shop staff with the aim of increasing Gift Aid income. The company reports that two shops at different charities have managed to increase the value of Gift Aid returns by 400% as a result.BMc Azzuri already provide technology solutions for charity shops to help them handle Gift Aid donations on donated goods. But the company realised that many charities were still not benefiting from Gift Aid via their shops as much as they could. Indeed, the proportion of UK charities reporting no income from Gift Aid (across all fundraising activities, not just trading) increased 8% to 50% in 2014, according to the Blackbaud 2014 State of the Not-for-Profit Industry report.So it has run a number of training and refresher courses in charity shops to help improve staff (paid and volunteer) knowledge and skills.Two stores in particular, part of the Age UK and RSPCA network of branches, subsequently achieved an increase in Gift Aid returns of 400% following refresher training in January 2015. This equated to an increase from 4% of sales to 22%.There also the opportunity of raising more now that the maximum annual amount that can be claimed through the Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme (GASDS) will rise from £5,000 to £8,000.

What our pilot refresher training programme has revealed is that for many charities, their current technology is more than adequate for the job, but their staff lack the knowledge or confidence to execute the Gift Aid process properly. With more focus given to supporting volunteers and educating them on how to best approach the subject of Gift Aid donation, charities can make a dramatic improvement to income simply through the better utilisation of existing resources.”  66 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5last_img read more

Betts muscled him home on the first pitch he saw.The Dodgers travel south on the 5 Friday for a weekend series against the Angels.It’s the fourth game of a four-series for the Doyers, who hope to split this week’s series against the Nachos.

More Communities Banning Plywood on Zombie Homes

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago More Communities Banning Plywood on Zombie Homes Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / More Communities Banning Plywood on Zombie Homes Abandoned “zombie homes” are a problem in many communities, driving down property values, attracting crime, and often creating safety risks such as fire hazards. Communities battle zombie homes and related urban blight in a variety of ways, ranging from fast-track foreclosure legislation to New York’s ongoing program of purchasing distressed mortgages in an attempt to keep homeowners in their homes. One symptom of zombie homes that more communities are fighting back against? Plywood.Newsday reports that Oyster Bay, New York, has become the latest community to ban the use of plywood in boarding up the windows or doors of abandoned zombie homes, with a law forbidding the material taking effect this past week.Oyster Bay spokesperson Marta Kane told Newsday that the town would begin alerting the appropriate homeowners, banks, and lending institutions that plywood was now banned, and that they were responsible for replacing the material. Failure to do so will result in the town replacing the plywood and then charging the relevant parties. The law also requires “banks that foreclose on homes to deposit $25,000 to cover any costs to the town to clean up or board up the property.”Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino said in a statement, “The town strengthened the law to address quality of life concerns caused by dilapidated and vacant homes in our neighborhoods. Together with residents and local civic associations we are taking back our neighborhoods by cracking down on code violations and holding absentee landlords and lending institutions accountable.”This shift from plywood to the use of polycarbonate “clearboarding” has been a trend in many communities across the country, with Ohio banning use of the material in early 2017. That came on the heels of Fannie Mae’s announcement in November 2016 that it would allow mortgage servicers to use clearboarding on vacant homes in pre-foreclosure. In June 2016, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo set up a consumer hotline to take reports of zombie properties, of which there are an estimated 6,000 within the state of New York alone. More and more communities are embracing clearboarding as a means to fight some of the negative effects of zombie homes, and the keep them both more secure and less unsightly.Louisville, Kentucky-based WDRB reported last week that Louisville’s 2018 budget allotted more funding for a new clearboarding initiative, targeting nearly 200 homes while the city pursues other legal actions. Louisville also increased its rate of foreclosures in the past year, initiating 96 foreclosures since July 1. Metro Louisville’s Vacant and Public Property Administration also demolished 57 homes during that period. in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Headlines, Journal, News The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: How Cryptocurrency Can Help Fund Affordable Housing Next: Low Delinquencies Drive Consumer Credit Market Performance February 19, 2018 3,807 Views About Author: David Wharton Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: abandoned homes Blight Blight Elimination Blighted Homes Blighted Properties Clearboarding Plywood Polycarbonate Property Preservation Vacant and Abandoned Homes Vacant and Abandoned Properties zombie homes Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agocenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago abandoned homes Blight Blight Elimination Blighted Homes Blighted Properties Clearboarding Plywood Polycarbonate Property Preservation Vacant and Abandoned Homes Vacant and Abandoned Properties zombie homes 2018-02-19 David Wharton Related Articles Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

Establishing the proper selection pool

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Taylor v Commissioners of Inland Revenue IDS Brief 649, EAT• Taylor was a valuation executive and whilst on maternity leave was graded4 in an appraisal. This meant she was not suitable for promotion due to lack ofexperience. Before her return a scheme was introduced whereby valuation executives whosatisfied three criteria were promoted to senior valuer. Taylor met two of thecriteria but because she was not graded 2 in the most recent appraisal was notpromoted. The following year, after being graded 1, she sought retrospectivepromotion but this was refused. She complained of indirect sex discrimination, arguing that but for herabsence she would have gained the necessary experience and promotion earlier.The tribunal dismissed her claim and held the three criteria were indivisibleand the relevant “pool” was all the valuation executives. Of thosepromoted there was no disproportionate impact on women. Taylor successfully appealed and the EAT held the pool was those who couldcomply with the same two criteria as Taylor and in those circumstances theimpact was disproportionate and fewer women were promoted.Does a car allowance constitute wages?Johnson v Hampshire Probation Service Employment Lawyer 35, EAT• Johnson was classified an essential car user as he used his car forbusiness. As such he received a lump sum allowance and a mileage rateallowance. When he was reclassified as a casual user he received only themileage rate allowance. He complained to the tribunal of an unlawful deduction of wages, arguing thelump sum was an emolument rather than a payment in respect of expenses. Hiscomplaint was unsuccessful. Johnson appealed, also unsuccessfully. The EAT held that, even if the employeemight have profited from the payments, the allowances for the essential caruser were to compensate for expenses incurred in carrying out employment. The same applied to the allowance provided to a casual user. There was nodifference between the payments made under either classification. Accordinglythe payments were not emoluments and there was no unlawful deduction. Establishing the proper selection poolOn 18 Jan 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more

A collar might help prevent concussions in sports like soccer: Study

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock/ThinkstockBY: DR. TAMBETTA OJONG(NEW YORK) — Team sports build character, teach discipline and keep your kids healthy, but for some sports, like soccer and football, they could also increase their risk of brain injuries. Helping to prevent these injuries, a new neck collar has shown promising results in protecting the brain.The specialized collar, developed by researchers at the Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, applies pressure to the back of the neck. This pressure allows the artery in the neck to safely backfill the brain with blood, turning the blood into a cushion that makes it less likely for the brain to move upon impact.The idea for the collar was born out of “biological mimicry,” Dr. David Smith, a visiting research scientist at the Children’s Hospital who led a study that tested the collar, told ABC News.Essentially, Smith and his colleagues looked to nature to solve a medical issue. “If a woodpecker could repeatedly hit its head and not sustain any head injury, why couldn’t this be applied to humans,” Smith said.The study involved 75 teen girls ages 14 to 18 who played for two local high school soccer teams. Only one team received the collars, and then they played soccer. Both teams were asked to undergo brain scans at the beginning and end of the season, as well as during the off-season.The scans showed that while the brains of the team that hadn’t worn the collars showed signs of damage from head impacts, the brains of the team that had worn the collars remained the same.The results are encouraging considering that even minor impacts over the course of an athlete’s career can have long-lasting effects on their cognitive functioning.Concussions have emerged as a major health concern across the United States, according to the American Academy of Physicians. Emergency departments report more than a million visits annually for traumatic brain injuries, most of which are concussions.Women’s soccer is the third most common cause of concussion in the U.S., and it’s estimated that 1.6 to 3.8 million sports-related concussions occur each year.There is a debate as to whether the changes shown in the brain scans can result in long-term cognitive decline. However, the areas of the brain that were affected in this study are involved in behavior, personality, expression, decision-making, and long-term memory.The Academy of Family Physicians states that a concussion is a functional injury rather than a structural one, meaning that it can correlate with symptoms such as changes in sleep, confusion, depression, inability to focus and headache, to name a few. If you’ve experienced a blow to the head and feel some of these symptoms, then see a doctor and ask about concussion.The study did not account for hormonal fluctuations in the girls, which could affect intracranial pressure. It also didn’t look more deeply into whether or not the observed in the brain led to behavioral or physical symptoms.That said, if wearing the specialized collar can protect the brain from injuries while athletes continue to enjoy competitive sports, it may be a small price to pay for long-term protection. In the near future, a neck collar may be just another part of your child’s uniform along with cleats and knee pads.Dr. Tambetta Ojong is a family medicine resident at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and a member of the ABC News Medical Unit.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
