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.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The coronavirus pandemic has inflicted great pain on FTSE 100 banking shares. Today, I’m taking a look at the share prices of Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) and HSBC Holdings (LSE: HSBA) to see how £1,000 invested in either one would have done over the past five years. I’ll also discuss what investors may possibly expect from the two banking giants for the rest of the year.Year-to-date (YTD), the stocks are down about 51% and 30% respectively, which means the shares are clearly in bear market territory. 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…Reading the numbersUnder each company name below, you can see how the price has changed over the past five years and what this change equates to in terms of the compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Then, I’ve shown how £1,000 would have fared over five years.Past share prices are for mid-April 2015. Current ones are closing prices on 17 April. I haven’t factored-in any brokerage commissions or taxes.Please note that until recently, both FTSE 100 firms paid regular dividends that could also have been reinvested. The calculation below doesn’t take into consideration the dividends or the reinvestment of that income.You see, on 31 March, the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) requested that UK-listed banks suspend current and future plans to return money to shareholders.Thus many banks, including Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds, RBS, and Standard Chartered won’t be paying dividends or buying back shares for a while.LLoydsThe share price has fallen from 79p to 30.45p, although on 2 January 2020, Lloyds shares were around 63p.CAGR: -17.36%£1,000 would have decreased to about £385.Many retail investors have bought LLOY in recent years thanks to a history of generous dividends. But these are now suspended. On 3 April, Lloyds released an update that said the “board will decide on any dividend policy and amounts at year-end 2020. We expect that the months ahead will be exceptionally challenging for businesses and households across the UK”.The bank will release its Q1 interim management statement on 30 April.HSBCThe share price has fallen from 629p to 412.05p, but on 2 January 2020, HSBA shares were around 595p.CAGR: -8.11%£1,000 would have decreased to about £655.HSBC is one of the largest banks and financial organisations worldwide. On 31 March, management issued a press release that said: “HSBC has a strong capital, funding and liquidity position. However, as a result of the global impacts of Covid-19, and its impact on interest rates, market levels and the forward economic outlook, we expect reported revenues to be impacted”.It will report Q1 2020 earnings on 28 April. Can FTSE bank shares recover in 2020?Both Lloyds and HSBC are likely to report significant earnings declines for the first quarter. Yet they look cheap (and therefore appealing) to many. Of course, if you’re not currently a shareholder, you may want to analyse the metrics before committing new capital to the stocks.According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the global economy will contract 3% in 2020. Yet in 2021, the IMF forecasts robust growth. Stock prices generally reflect expectations of future profits. If you agree that these grey clouds may dissipate in the coming months, it may also be time to start to nibble on FTSE 100 banking stocks.Although it’s impossible to know if bank shares have bottomed, I believe Lloyds and HSBC are beginning look quite attractive from a risk/reward perspective.

Significant increase in commercial rate compliance

first_imgVanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Advertisement Print Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Email Facebook Dr James Ring, Limerick Chamber CEOA SURVEY of Limerick Chamber members has confirmed that rate payments have dramatically improved this year.The Chamber says it attributes this to improved performance across all sectors as confidence returns to the economy.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking ahead of Limerick City and County Council’s annual budget meeting on November 20, Limerick Chamber chief executive Dr James Ring said that local businesses will fund 35 per cent of Limerick’s local authority total income through the payment of €53 million in commercial rates in 2015.“Speaking with our members, we know that the payment of rates in the current period has drastically increased, reflecting the upturn in activity in the economy, particularly improvements in the level of employment in this region. A confidence and vibrancy is returning to the streets across our city and towns. We urge the council to adopt policies that enable this business growth not hamper job creation opportunities.”Acknowledging that many businesses continue to struggle with legacy commercial rate debt issues, Dr Ring urged them “to engage with the local authority and negotiate a repayment schedule”.In advance of the local authority budget meeting for 2016, Dr Ring reminded elected representatives that “an increase in rates penalises those who are paying to subsidise those businesses that are not up to date with their payments”.Last week, the City and County Council issued 27 summonses to local business owners for non-payment of commercial rates. A spokesman for the council said that some of the cases had been cleared and payment plans agreed in other instances.

Gallery: A look at what’s under construction in Ithaca, Part 1

first_imgMeanwhile, just over the flood control channel, The Vecino Group’s Ithaca Arthaus project is up to the fourth floor of five. Here too, it’s Huber plywood ZIP panels encasing the apartments on the upper levels, but in this case the ground floor uses concrete masonry unit (CMU) walls. Taking a guess here, the white material on the bumpout in the first photo may have to do with the choice of material finishes –– most of the building will have a fiber cement panel facade, but that and the stairwell to its left appear to be getting a stucco finish, which requires a base underlayment to protect wood surfaces (like ZIP panels), but not CMU, which is why the CMU stairwell has no covering. The first two photos show the new 1,244-bed freshman dorm complex going up on the former Appel Fields, slated for an August 2022 opening. Structural steel framing continues on these structures, with some precast concrete and terra cotta tiles already in place. These pre-cast panels are unusual in that the insulation is built right into the panel, so there’s no need for stud walls or sheathing here. Welliver’s construction crews can attach the panels practically as soon as the structure is framed. The sophomore buildings so appear to have some plywood sheeting, but only as a temporary measure prior to the new glazing (exterior glass) being installed. Some fireproof gypsum panels have also been attached adjacent to assembly spaces like the lobbies and the dining hall. Over on West Hill, Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services’ new 13-unit apartment building is fully framed and sheathed in ZIP panels. If you’re cross comparing to West End Heights, ZIP Panels come in both standard green wall sheathing and red roof and wall sheathing forms. The performance of the two varieties are similar. Most but not all of the windows have been installed, and the doors will come along a little later. A water-resistive wrap looks to be in place over structural overhangs and awnings, and it looks like some but not all of the roof has been covered with underlayment, which is used to help keep moisture out. Units will be finished out with Energy Star appliances and other sustainable features, and the project is seeking LEED Certification. Home Leasing Construction of Rochester is the general contractor for this project, and Rochester-based SWBR Architects penned the design. Ithaca Arthaus (130 Cherry St.) West End Heights (709-713 West Court St.) City Harbor (101 Pier Road) Work is well underway at the City Harbor project site along Ithaca’s waterfront. Dredging has been completed and the new marina boat slips and promenade seawall are in place, though the 1,700 foot-long promenade itself won’t be finished out until construction is much further along. As the project was getting off the ground this year, the developers (Lambrou Real Estate, Bridges Development Group, and Edger Enterprises, which doubles as the general contractor) offered up a portion of the site that had yet to get underway as an outdoor space for drive-in movies, which was much welcomed after initial plans for a socially-distanced drive-thru in Lansing became caught up in red tape. The five-story West End Heights project will bring sixty apartment units to the city when it comes to completion in late 2021. As previously reported, “(o)n the first floor of the $21.7 million building, office space will be available for both residents and other Lakeview clients. Twenty of the units will be reserved for people with a mental health diagnosis, and an additional 10 units are for people with a diagnosis who are also experiencing homelessness. The remaining 30 units are affordable housing (households making less than 60% area median income), with eight of those units for ‘homeless or unstably housed individuals who may also have special needs relating to substance abuse and/or HIV/AIDS’”. In short, the housing fills a rare but much needed subset of affordable housing. Lecesse Construction of Rochester is in charge of the buildout. If you like this style of architecture, you’ll be happy to know ikon.5, the architecture firm, have been tapped to design Collegetown’s Innovation District. If you don’t like the architecture…well, at least the chosen materials are high quality. Glazing is often judged by how clean the reflection lines are (straight, not distorted or wavy), and here they’re straight and crystal clear. The first phase of City Harbor includes the marina, promenade, the mixed-use Point West building with ground-level restaurant, and the Point East apartment building (96 units between the two). The 60-unit Point East II Building will be built in phase two, and planned for a new Newman Golf Course clubhouse and community center will also follow in the later phase, provided the city and the developers are in agreement on plans and legal matters. Tagged: 130 cherry street, arthaus ithaca, cayuga flats, city harbor, cornell campus, edger enterprises, guthrie medical group, INHS, lakeview health services, lambrou real estate, Lecesse Construction, North Campus Residential Expansion, Vecino Group, Welliver, West End Heights Lakeview Health Service’s new affordable housing development is moving skyward over in Ithaca’s West End neighborhood. Framing is up to the fourth floor –– note that ground floor is framed in steel with steel stud walls and fireproof GP DensElement fiberglass mat sheathing, while the upper floors are wood construction with plywood Huber ZIP panels. This is because the ground level will host offices for Lakeview, and commercial-grade construction has more stringent fireproofing requirements than residential spaces. Also note the fireproof spray material on the structural steel support columns in the last picture; you can also see one of the stairwells and the elevator core at left. The masonry stairwell on the west end of the building is coated with a blue water-resistive barrier that makes the project look like a veritable rainbow from street level. Meanwhile, Guthrie Clinic broke ground last month on their new 60,000 square-foot medical office building. Pile driving for the new deep foundation is underway, as is excavation for subterranean utility lines. Technically, the Guthrie project is a part of City Harbor, but Guthrie is working with construction firm Welliver on the buildout of their parcel separately from the rest of the City Harbor development. When it opens alongside Phase I of City Harbor in a year or so, Guthrie will be adding another 75-100 jobs to its local workforce. Brian Crandall Of the 13 units, ten will be one-bedroom units, and three will be two-bedroom units, targeted at those making 50-60 percent of area median income. Occupancy is expected in February 2021. INHS is currently accepting applications on these and sixteen units in recently renovated homes throughout the city. The application for these units can be found here with floor plans here. Applications must be submitted by Dec. 1 to be accepted into the lottery, which will be held on Dec. 15 at 3 p.m. via Facebook Live (frankly it’s probably healthier to avoid Facebook, but this is one way they can demonstrate transparency during a pandemic). More detailed guidelines on income limits and several other units can be found here. While Arthaus’s opening is a little ways off, stay tuned for part two of Ithaca’s construction updates later this week. First and foremost, the biggest project underway, Cornell’s 2,000 bed, $175 million north campus expansion. Cornell and its construction partner, Welliver, have been working on this project since shortly after approvals were issued in June 2019, and the first two buildings should be ready for occupancy in August 2021. These will be part of the sophomore housing village when the project is completed, as the university transitions to housing all of its sophomores on campus. The two sophomore dorms will house 821 students total as well as provide study and assembly spaces, and one of the buildings will host a new dining hall. Missouri-based Vecino is a large enough firm that they’re using their in-house construction team to build the Ithaca Arthaus. Alongside Vecino on the project team are Fagan Engineers of Elmira doing the civil engineering work, local firm Taitem Engineering as energy consultants, and Ithaca’s Whitham Planning and Design for landscape architecture and community outreach. CRM Property Management of Rome (Oneida County) will manage the property on Vecino’s behalf. Cornell North Campus Residential Expansion The zoning on Cherry Street does not allow for residential uses on the first floor of buildings due to the flood risk posed by the inlet, and instead the ground level will host covered parking (34 cars, 4 motorcycles, 52 bike rack spaces), the lobby, the rental office, and Cherry Arts Gallery and studio space (Arthaus’s “theme” is to appeal to tenants who are artistically inclined and need space to work on and show their work, and the gallery is being managed in partnership with the Cherry Artspace next door). The project recently sought and received variance for some signage tweaks for bracketed signs with the building’s name and identifying the gallery space. ITHACA, N.Y. –– Need a break from your socially distanced work or home situation? Then you’ve come to the right piece. This month, we’ll be looking at projects underway in and around the city of Ithaca –– and there’s so much underway, the article is being split into two parts. Here is the first piece with a closer look at Ithaca’s latest additions. The project will host 48 studio, 55 one-bedroom, and 20 two-bedroom units, rented to those making 50-80 percent of area median income, plus a one-bedroom unit for the property manager for a total of 124. (A breakdown of units and rents is at the end of this post and on the NYS Homes and Community Renewal website here.) Forty of those units will be set aside for young adults aged 19-26 for formerly foster care and homeless youth, and administered by Tompkins Community Action. Arthaus will be built to state (NYSERDA) “Performance Path for Energy Star” standards for sustainable housing (Tier II, >25 percent energy savings above code). Expect an opening in fall 2021. Cayuga Flats (203-209 Elm St.) As reported by my colleague Matt Butler last month, two of the north campus dormitories will be named after two famous Cornell alumna, the late author Toni Morrison and the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Although the text of Cornell’s announcement isn’t explicit, it implies that the two buildings to be named in honor of Morrison and Ginsberg are the two dormitories that will open later this year. Cornell is soliciting ideas for the other three dormitories through November 23rd. Cornell historian and raconteur Corey Earle says they’ve received 755 submissions and 147 names to date.

HR predicts contract grievances will keep it busy in year ahead

first_img Comments are closed. HR predicts contract grievances will keep it busy in year aheadOn 1 Jun 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Changes to employee terms and conditions are going to be the main employmentlaw challenge for HR professionals in the coming year, according to the latestresearch. A survey of more than 300 senior HR managers by the IRS Employment Reviewfound requests for part-time and flexible working was the second greatestchallenge, and an expected increase in disciplinary and grievance cases ratedthird. The study shows HR prac-titioners are not as concerned about individualpieces of legi-slation as much as the internal policies and procedures thatstem from these changes. Data protection dropped from second to fifth place. Sex discrimination claims were viewed as a top three issue by less than 1per cent, while disability discrimination was the most worrying equality issue.While disciplinary and grievance issues are a major concern, the measurescontain-ed in the Employment Bill are not widely expected to help. More thanthree-quarters of HR practitioners said the Bill would have no impact at all ondispute resolution; 62.5 per cent said it would not affect flexible workingpractices, and 71.9 per cent it would not influence fixed-term working. Only 17 per cent thought the Bill would reduce employment tribunal cases. Stress was also expected to stay high on the agenda, despite the recentCourt of Appeal ruling. Richard Lister, partner at Lewis Silkin, said: “Weare seeing a lot of disability discrimination claims connected with stress.There are many ways in which stress can be brought into litigation and I don’tthink it is an issue that is going to go away.” He said other issues that would crop up in the near future included agediscrimination and the implementation of domestic works councils.
