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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address CORRECTION: This article has been amended to better reflect that Persimmon has postponed its annual final dividend, rather than cancelled it.Buying, selling, and building houses has ground to a halt. Housebuilders such as Persimmon (LSE:PSN), Barratt Developments, and Taylor Wimpey have all closed down show homes and sales offices and ceased operating construction sites. 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…Persimmon, like its rivals, lost a hefty chunk of share price value when the market crashed. Persimmon saw over 40% of its share price value disappear. The York-based housebuilder operates 31 regional offices around the UK, and employs close to 5,000 people. Some potential investors see a chunk of share price being lost and begin to rub their hands together. They assume share price levels will bounce back. In this case, however, I would exercise caution. The housing market and construction sector will need time, patience, and demand to recover sufficiently. Not so open houseLike a lot of other companies, Persimmon provided a trading update in regards to Covid-19. Pointing towards a strong order book leading into the period of uncertainty, it confirmed contingency plans. Persimmon confirmed it expected a delay in timing of legal completions as well as a rise in cancellation rates. It also expects a material slowdown in new sales, the extent and duration of which is uncertain. That last part is what worries me the most. How long exactly will the lockdown and resulting effects hinder the housebuilder? Conserving cash and maximising financial flexibility is the order of the day. The cancellation and postponement of its two dividends is a wise move in my opinion. The interim dividend for surplus capital has been cancelled whereas the final annual dividend has been postponed until further notice.Persimmon did confirm it has a cash position of over £600m. This should go some way to cover its financial obligations in such an uncertain time. What I would do nowThe Persimmon share price stood at near 3,300p in mid-February. At the time of writing it is closer to 1,900p. Some may believe it to be an opportunity to purchase shares cheap. I am not one of those people, at this moment. I must admit it is tempting, however. With a current price-to-earnings ratio of just under 7 there is not much risk involved here. The previous three years have shown healthy, increasing profit levels year on year. As well as this, the dividend per share has also been increasing. There has also been significant investment into customer service and IT response to better its customer satisfaction ratings. A major issue for me is the recent controversy around build quality, which was allegedly the reason for CEO David Jenkinson stepping down from his role in February. An independent report commissioned by Persimmon found it did not have an agreed minimum standard for all the homes it builds.Overall there are some promising takeaways from Persimmon’s position in the market. That said, I do not think it is one for me. Sure it will bounce back in terms of share price, but the big question is how much and when? With no specific timescales on the lockdown and impact of the virus, this could last months. The knock on effects could last even longer. So it’s a no for me right now.

Royal British Legion recreates In Flanders Fields in poppies to launch 2017 Poppy Appeal Melanie May | 27 October 2017 | News Tagged with: The Royal British Legion 186 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 The Royal British Legion has launched its 2017 Poppy Appeal by recreating lines of John McCrae’s poem In Flanders Fields in iconic locations across the UK, spelt out in poppies.The lines of the poem have been recreated by the Royal British Legion in seven locations: Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, on Dunkirk Beach, on the White Cliffs of Dover, at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, in Cardiff Bay, at Salford Quays in Manchester and outside the Sage in Gateshead. The individual letters of the poem are made up of clusters of poppies, to give the impression the lines of the poem have grown from the ground, and to bring a new perspective to the poem and its meaning.This year, the charity hopes to raise £47m through the Poppy Appeal, asking people to Rethink Remembrance by recognising the sacrifices made by the Armed Forces community, past and present.Claire Rowcliffe, Royal British Legion’s Director of Fundraising, said:“The Poppy Appeal 2017 is encouraging the public to recognise that your poppy supports the Armed Forces community past and present, and is a symbol of both remembrance and hope.“The work of the Legion is as relevant and vital today as it was in the aftermath of the First World War when the charity was founded. The donation for your poppy will help the Legion support today’s Armed Forces community through hardships, injury and bereavements.“We’re encouraging people to dig deep for this year’s Poppy Appeal to help us raise £47 million. The Legion’s work is entirely dependent on the public’s generous support – so please wear your poppy with pride.”The charity has already said it will accept old pound coins in the appeal.In other Remembrance Sunday-related news, the grouse statue at The Famous Grouse Experience has received a Poppyscotland makeover ahead of November 11th. The grouse has been given a poppy hat designed by Crieff artist June McEwan and was commissioned by The Famous Grouse Experience to highlight the ongoing contribution of the armed forces in the run up to Remembrance Sunday.The visitor attraction will also be offering free Distillery and Tasting Experience tours for serving and retired military personnel during the month of November.The Famous Grouse Experience statue The Westminster Collection has also released The 2017 Masterpiece 5oz Silver Proof Poppy Coin. Only 250 coins have been struck, with the target of raising £700,000 for The Royal British Legion through a donation of £49.80 for each one sold. Last year. The Westminster Collection raised £500,000 through its limited edition poppy coins. 185 total views, 1 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago July 29, 2020 1,146 Views Kathleen Kraninger, Director of the CFPB, delivered the Bureau’s “Semi-Annual Report to Congress” this morning, addressing a fully remote hearing of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. Speaking on the topic of whistleblowers, Kraninger said, in “our enforcement work, we have seen firsthand that whistleblowers can provide key information on fair lending violations.”During COVID-19, Kraninger said the Bureau has been taking various measures to safeguard consumers, working to expand its reach to as well as provide them with actionable, useful information in terms of their rights, options, and expectations in the marketplace or consumer finance products and services.“We produced over 70 blogs and videos that have been accessed directly by more than three million users,” Kraninger added.U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R – Idaho), Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, said, “I commend Director Kraninger and her staff for taking these steps to help consumers, families, and small businesses as they continue to weather this global coronavirus pandemic. I continue to advocate for establishing a bipartisan board of directors to oversee the CFPB; subjecting the CFPB to the annual appropriations process, similar to other federal regulators; and establishing a safety-and-soundness check for the prudential regulators.”However, Senator John Tester (D – Montana), another member of the committee, was decidedly more tepid, questioning Kraninger on just how aggressively the CFPB has acted against violations.Kraninger said that every enforcement action involved a decision by the director, “and it’s one I take seriously.” Last year, Kraninger noted, the CFPB had 22 public enforcement actions and resolved a number of prior mitigation actions, a figure she expects will be “notably higher” by the end of the fiscal year.She indicated that while she didn’t know how much money had been returned to consumers as a result of enforcement actions “off the top of my head,” she promised to provide that information. “I can tell you that the number of investigations ongoing has increased.”The CFPB has been the focus of much attention recently, with the Supreme Court in June weighing in on the constitutionality of the CFPB’s single-director structure.“The CFPB’s single-Director configuration is also incompatible with the structure of the Constitution, which—with the sole exception of the Presidency—scrupulously avoids concentrating power in the hands of any single individual,” the ruling stated. Additionally, the court said its director “must be removable by the President at will.” Print This Post Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Journal, News Related Articles CFPB Kathleen Kraninger 2020-07-29 David Wharton Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago
