Why I think the Lloyds share price and other UK shares could rocket in 2021

first_img There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! I think the Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) share price and many other UK stocks are tremendously undervalued at current levels. Investors have been selling these companies due to the uncertain outlook for the UK economy.It’s clear the economy is heading into an extended period of uncertainty. The pandemic, coupled with Brexit, are two headwinds that could cause further instability in the year ahead.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…However, when I look past these macroeconomic issues and focus on the underlying fundamental performance of UK shares, I’m incredibly excited by what I see. That’s why I’m backing these businesses, as well as the Lloyds share price for 2021. UK shares on offerThe main reason why I’m optimistic about the outlook for UK shares in 2021 is Brexit. No matter what happens over the next few weeks, any deal or no deal will bring some certainty. This will allow companies and investors to plan.What’s more, after the first couple of months, we should have a much better idea of how the divorce will impact companies, and how badly their earnings/sales will be affected.Once again, this will bring clarity to an uncertain situation. It should also give investors more to go on when evaluating investments like the Lloyds share price. Other UK shares should prosper as the coronavirus pandemic recedes. A vaccination programme is already in progress across the UK and, by the first half of next year, global vaccination efforts should be well underway.This could be hugely positive for travel-related companies like Carnival and IAG. Also, domestic UK banks such as Lloyds and its peers, Barclays and Virgin Money, for example, may be able to move on from the crisis and re-focus on growth. Combined with the ending of the Brexit debacle, these lenders could benefit from a double tailwind in 2021. Lloyds share price I think Lloyds should see a much better performance than many of its peers in this best-case scenario. There are a couple of reasons why I believe the lender could be a better investment. First of all, it’s one of the most profitable banks in Europe with a return on equity in the double digits. Second, the lender is well capitalised. And third, for the past few years, management has been concentrating on reducing costs to improve profit margins. Combined, these three factors should help the group’s profitability in the years ahead. However, despite its potential, the Lloyds share price is trading at a significant discount to book value. This isn’t appropriate. Companies deserve to trade at a discount to book value if they’re losing money for investors. Lloyds is likely to lose money overall this year, but profits could surge over the next few years. On that basis, I believe the Lloyds share price is hugely undervalued.Like many other UK shares, it could benefit significantly from an improvement in trading performance over the next few years. As such, I reckon there’s a good chance the investment could yield high total returns for shareholders in the years ahead.

The ceiling overhangs outwards to block the sun’s heat and glare and prevent views from the adjacent, higher houses.

Tony Symanovich: Engineer in charge

first_imgFacebook Twitter ReddIt Linkedin Tony Symanovich is shading for a broadcast. Symanovich is the engineer in charge of TCU’s sports broadcasting. World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Welcome TCU Class of 2025 + posts James Creangehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/james-creange/ Linkedin James Creangehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/james-creange/ printFor every sports event that is broadcasted, there is one person whose job it is to make sure that everything runs smoothly.This person is called the engineer in charge.Tony Symanovich is TCU’s EIC for all of their broadcasted sporting events.Symanovich, broadcast engineer at TCU, said he coordinates all of the equipment for TCU’s sporting events.“I make sure everything is working and the system is up and going,” Symanovich said.Symanovich said that he more or less does quality control for the events.Unlike most EICs, though, Symanovich’s role extends past just working with the equipment.“Here [at TCU] I get to do a lot, including video shading,” Symanovich said. This means he is in control of all of the colors involved in a sporting event and how they will look on the TV. He constantly has to adjust how the colors will look on each camera shot. This double duty can sometimes lead to issues during the production.“If he has to do something engineering-wise to fix something, it takes him away and he is no longer able to shade the cameras,” said Mike Martin, assistant professor of professional practice at TCU.Yet, most of the time, Symanovich is able to seemingly be in two places at once and keep the production running smoothly. “If there is ever a problem with the vast advanced technology, he is the guy to go to,” said Jack Hurlbut, a senior sports broadcasting major.When he is not fixing things at sporting events for TCU, he is involved with technical upkeep in the Bob Schieffer College of Communication production studios.“Anything that is not working or needs to be fixed keeps him pretty busy during the week,” Martin said. “And students keep him pretty busy with stuff that they tend to break.”Symanovich also helps to put together the recorded sports shows that Martin produces nearly every week.“I kind of put my track shoes on for [Mike Martin’s] video production shows because I do both audio and visuals for that,” Symanovich said.This means that Symanovich has to constantly run from the room with the audio board to the room with the tape recording to keep the production running smoothly.The kind of work that Symanovich does for TCU seems to run in the family.“My dad had started a company that had mobile units, and it was one of the first companies like it in the country,” Symanovich said.Symanovich said that he was raised around production trucks and decided that it was what he wanted to do in the 1970s. He then took control of the company from his dad and ran it until 2006 before working freelance and then eventually for TCU.Martin said Symanovich’s daughter Katy is now following in his footsteps.“When my daughter was very young she said to my wife, ‘I hope Dad doesn’t think I’m going to go into this business,’ and I never thought that she would,” Symanovich said.“After she got out of school she started freelancing [as a video operator] and now she loves what she’s doing, which is great,” Symanovich said.Martin said that Katy is both an awesome worker and person.“It’s a pretty male dominated career path, so I know that she has had to fight that stigma along the way,” Martin said. “But she does a great job, and everywhere she goes people are happy to have her.”Just like his daughter, people are happy to have Symanovich around.“He is always helpful and understanding in the control room,” Hurlbut said. “As a person Tony is one of the nicest guys I have met at TCU,” Hurlbut said.Martin echoed these words.“He’s very personable, easy to get along with, and a hard worker,” Martin said. “He’s great to have, a great addition to the staff.”For Symanovich, the work he does is all about the people.“I really enjoy working with the faculty and the students in this department, it’s a great experience,” Symanovich said. “They’re enthusiastic, and it’s great to see the students that are trying to get into the industry. I’d take the job just for that.”Symanovich doesn’t know how long he’ll stay at TCU, but he doesn’t expect to leave any time soon.“I’d like to stay in this position as long as I’m still having a good time,” Symanovich said. “And I really am.” A&J Podcast – May 10, 2017 James Creange Twitter A&J Podcast – April 4, 2017 ReddIt A&J Podcast – May 2, 2017 James Creangehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/james-creange/ Previous articleSilent protest divides students and social mediaNext articleEquestrian excels in season-opener James Creange RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history James Creangehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/james-creange/ Facebook TAGStext only A&J Podcast – April 14, 2017last_img read more

Brookings Institute Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection Federal Reserve HOUSING mortgage Randal Quarles Stress Test 2018-11-11 Krista Franks Brock Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agocenter_img  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Brookings Institute Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection Federal Reserve HOUSING mortgage Randal Quarles Stress Test Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago As the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection considers changes to its ability-to-repay rules and the Federal Reserve proposes changes to its stress test and capital reserve requirements, concerns and criticisms arise from both sides of the regulatory spectrum. On one side, some view these changes as a positive but perhaps insufficient step toward addressing what they view as burdensome regulations. On the other side are those decrying these proposals as a step toward unhinged deregulation that will lead toward predatory practices and a possible financial crisis.These themes were discussed in an event titled, “The Future of Financial Regulation,” that took place Friday at the Brookings Institute.During his keynote presentation, Randal Quarles, Vice Chairman for Supervision at the Federal Reserve Board, explained that the proposed changes to the Fed’s stress test are “intended to increase both the transparency and efficiency” of the tool and that the tests “will and should evolve as we continue to learn from this management tool.”Instead of placing a uniform capital reserve requirement for all financial institutions in a particular bracket, Quarles supports more “dynamic” capital reserve requirements that are risk-sensitive and tailored to each institution.When asked how he responds to those who say the Fed isn’t doing enough to address perceived burdensome regulations, he said that he believes the proposal is “a move in the right direction, and I think it’s significant simplification of the regime.”He pointed out that while large financial firms currently have to meet 24 separate capital-related requirements, the new proposed rule reduces these to 14 requirements.As to those who believe the Federal Reserve is going too far in relaxing standards for financial institutions, Quarels said, “I do think, when looked at fairly, what we are doing is very justified recalibration as opposed to relaxation.”He emphasized that the Federal Reserve views the countercyclical capital buffer is “a financial stability tool” and not a “macroeconomic dampener.”The issue of over- versus under-regulation of financial institutions, as well as the theme of transparency, were also central in a panel discussion following Quarels’ remarks.Randall Guynn, a renowned bank regulatory expert and head of the Financial Institutions Group at Davis Polk & Wardwell, LLP, complimented Quarels’ commitment to “transparency, simplicity, and efficiency.”However, Kathleen Day, professor at the Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University, discounted this praise, saying she’s heard these keywords before. She expressed extreme concern the “deteriorating standard” of “lowering capital standards,” “weakening of the Volcker rule,” and the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection’s movement to change the ability-to-repay rule.“Reach for your wallet when you hear these things,” she told the audience, suggesting that current proposals will lead toward consumer abuses and another financial downturn.However, H. Rodgin Cohen, Senior Chairman at Sullivan & Cromwell, LLP, took another standpoint.As for whether consumer abuses could lead to a financial crisis, he conceded, “Here I agree 100 percent with Kathleen. The evidence is there. It could. There’s no question about it.”However, he continued: “But whatever the CFPB’s position may be, the bank regulatory agencies were not stripped of their authority to examine these institutions, and they are examining them as fully and comprehensively in the consumer area as they were two or three years ago, five years ago. So I think what Congress did is create a double level of protection.”He furthermore suggested, “It’s not surprising that there’s going to be flaws and errors or that the circumstances have changed.”He simply described the current shift in regulation as “a relatively comprehensive response to what has occurred in the past 10 years.” November 11, 2018 2,071 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: MCT Moves to Secure Sensitive Borrower Data Next: Five Minutes With Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Subscribelast_img read more

44-year-old Derry man jailed for 13 years for PSNI station bomb attempt

first_imgNews Twitter WhatsApp Man arrested in Derry on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences released Twitter Google+ Google+ By News Highland – December 17, 2012 Pinterest Pinterest A 44-year-old man who admitted playing an ‘active role’ in a dissident bomb attack at a Derry PSNI station has been jailed for 13 years.Ordering that Philip O’Donnell spend half his sentence in jail and half on licence, Belfast Crown Court judge Mr Justice Burgess said that had O’Donnell been a primary party in the bomb attack on Strand Road PSNI station, he would have faced a sentence in excess of 20 years.The Judge said that given the nature of the offences and the terror and threat to life in the attack, the dissident group showed itself only too willing to resort to violence in pursuit of its aims and in doing so resorted to this highly dangerous act of causing an explosion of this magnitude.Earlier, Mr Justice Burgess heard that O’Donnell, acting on behalf of Óglaigh na hÉireann, lured a taxi driver to the Brandywell area of Derry where he was hijacked by two gunmen and ordered to take a 200lb bomb to the police station in August 2010.He also heard that O’Donnell, from Baldrick Court in Derry, telephoned a 45 minute warning but only half of that warning had expired when the bomb went off.

Jaising sought for a full Court of 32 judges to hear the matter. The remarks were stated during Jaising’s Keynote Speech at a Press Conference hosted by Indian-Americans who stood in solidarity with Bhushan and decried the contempt charges against him. On 14th August, a Bench comprising of Justices Arun Mishra, BR Gavai and Krishna Murari held Bhushan guilty of contempt of court in the Suo Moto Contempt case initiated against him over two of his tweets about the Chief Justice of India and the Supreme Court. The Bench will now hear him on his sentence on August 20, that is, tomorrow. In this context, Jaising poignantly noted, “If I speak my mind, therefore I am. But, if this right comes with a threat, then I am no more”. She further stated that a Court which assumed the power to entertain Public Interest Litigation, could not close itself off to voices of dissent. Additionally, in modern liberal democracies, there was a need for an independent judiciary, and an independent judiciary need to be transparent. “We have a duty to speak if we see the Court deviating from its course”, said Jaising. Jaising also questioned the existence of the offence of criminal contempt in our society. “We as citizens have a duty to be vibrant in our criticism. But, the very foundations of free speech have been shaken now. Why are we not being permitted to speak freely? Truth to power”. She remarked that the Supreme Court’s core function of dispensation of justice belonged to everyone and they had to be accountable to the public at large. This accountability could only be exercised with free speech, without fear of contempt. She also reflected that the Supreme Court was the public’s ally and an Indian citizen’s public jurisdiction was public, which, therefore, gave the citizens the locus to dissent. Jaising then addressed the infirmities in the judgment by stating that the Court had failed to address the aspect of fair criticism and failed to show how the tweets could constitute as interference in justice. She also raised the issue pertaining to statement in the judgment that public confidence in the Court would be shaken. “It said that public confidence will be shaken in the Court. Was the public consulted? Or do the three Judges constitute the public?”, said Jaising.Jaising: Further, it said that public confidence will be shaken in the Court ? Was the public consulted ? Or do the three Judges constitute the public ?— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 19, 2020 She, however, noted positively that a number of editorials and statements against the judgment portrayed that people favoured free speech. Jaising concluded her Keynote Speech by appealing to the Supreme Court to reconsider the judgement. “I appeal the Supreme Court to reconsider the judgment by a full court of 32 judges.
