Share MARKETS are nervously awaiting the results of the Bank of England’s latest meeting on interest rates.“We expect a considerable degree of market tension ahead of Thursday’s monetary policy committee (MPC) announcement,” said Investec’s Philip Shaw.Sterling rose last week after MPC members Andrew Sentance and Charles Bean gave interviews which suggested a leaning towards monetary tightening.Bean noted global commodity price inflation, admitting that the committee “may well have to respond to that by keeping domestically generated inflation lower.”Consumer price inflation reached 3.7 per cent in December, and Andrew Sentance’s call for a modest rate rise was finally joined by another MPC voter last month. Martin Weale also voted for a 0.25 per cent increase.Yet Shaw expects rates to remain at their historical low. A rate hike “could have the ‘avoid at all costs effect’ of derailing the planned fiscal consolidation,” he said. And the British Chambers of Commerce yesterday called for the Bank to keep rates on hold. “Avoiding a new setback must remain a key policy priority,” commented BCC economist David Kern.

The COVID-19 crisis highlights a golden rule of investing Michael Baxter | Wednesday, 4th March, 2020 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. Pity the individual who chose to begin their investment journey a few weeks ago. Especially pity them if they had a big lump sum and invested it all. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the markets will recover, eventually. But this situation does illustrate a golden rule of investing — never throw all your money at the stock market in one go.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…Actually, on thinking about it, I would not pity an investor who has just begun their investment journey if they had followed this rule — I would envy them. The markets have further to fallAlready we have seen a share rout, followed by a mini recovery, and then further falls. The mini recovery saw many conclude that shares had hit bottom, that ‘now was a time to buy.’Such false dawns are common occurrences during stock market crises. The infamous 1929 crash saw many short-lived recoveries which tempted shareholders back in.COVID-19 is spreading exponentially. It makes most of us nervous about our own health and the health of loved ones — is that a seasonal cold, or the dreaded virus? We wouldn’t be human if those thoughts didn’t cross our minds every time there’s a sneeze. I believe the markets are underestimating the likely spread of the virus and its economic impact. They always are lousy at judging something that changes exponentially. Maybe it’s in our genes — Ray Kurzweil, the famous futurologist and Google’s Director of Engineering has said that our evolutionary past means we have no instinctive understanding of exponential — we might get it intellectually, but not in our gut. As the virus spreads, we will change our behaviour, employers may eventually become more nervous about workers spreading the virus than about lost production, and markets will fall a lot further.As for predicting the recovery, getting the timing right is nigh on impossible.Diversify over timeThat is why diversification over time is so important. If you plough all your money into stocks in one go, you risk timing your investment with stock market falls. Sure, if you sit tight you will probably regain your money eventually, but you can do better.If, instead, you drip feed your money into the market — say once a month for three years, or once every three months, you are limiting the risk while increasing the chances that that you will benefit from a recovery.Three different situations, same responseLet’s say that you were savvy enough to have liquidated your portfolio at market peak, you have a lump sum for some other reason, or you invest a proportion of your income every month.I would say spread out your investment over three years. If you invest a proportion of your income every month, then relax, you are following that strategy by default.Follow that approach and just as investment losses occur on the falls, profits will accrue on the rises.

The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… Enter Your Email Address Seven years ago, in 2014, the UK investment world suffered a seismic shock. Star fund manager Neil Woodford was leaving Invesco Perpetual to branch out on his own. At that time, Woodford was the UK’s #1 fund manager, likened to famed US billionaire Warren Buffett for his stock-picking skills. But going it alone was Woodford’s worst mistake.Neil Woodford: star fund managerNeil Woodford joined investment manager Perpetual (later Invesco Perpetual) in early 1988. Over the next 26 years, he became the UK’s most successful money manager. At his peak, he controlled as much as £33bn across up to six different funds. During his reign, £1,000 invested in the Invesco Perpetual High Income fund skyrocketed to be worth around £25,000. Woodford’s success came from buying mostly FTSE 100 stocks — typically companies with solid balance sheets, rising earnings, and fat dividends.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…I will declare an interest here. From 1996/97 until around 2012/13, my wife was an investor in Neil Woodford’s flagship Invesco Perpetual High Income fund. Over this period, it was the best-performing UK equity fund by far. Thus, I was delighted with my advice to my wife to back Woodford.Woodford Investment Management: downfallIn May 2014, Neil Woodford launched Woodford Investment Management (WIM), his own fund manager. Eager investors rushed to invest in the Woodford Equity Income (WEI) fund. In its first year, WEI gained 19.6%, triple the UK market’s return. Within three years, Woodford was managing £18bn. But then his star came crashing back to earth. Over the next two years, WEI became the worst-performing fund in its sector. With money flooding out from WEI through hefty withdrawals, WIM ‘gated’ (suspended) the fund on 4 June 2019, exactly two years ago today. Here are four lessons for all investors from Neil Woodford’s downfall.Four lessons from Woodford’s failure1) Stick to your strategy: Woodford made his name buying established, high-yielding dividend shares, and ‘value’ stocks. At WIM, he plunged headlong into start-ups, smaller companies, unlisted stocks, and private companies. Few of these go-go growth stocks paid any income, so Woodford was well out of his depth. Big mistake. As Warren Buffet says, “Never invest in anything you don’t understand”.2) Higher returns mean higher risks: Woodford’s initial success at WIM came from buying big stakes in small companies. This juiced his returns in the early years. But these higher returns came with higher volatility and risk of loss. When these companies stumbled, so too did WEI. Thus, I avoid skewing my portfolio too much towards one company or sector. Instead, I spread my risk by diversifying widely.3) Don’t fall into a liquidity trap: With many billions to invest, Woodford ended up putting way too much money into ever-smaller companies. His stakes in unlisted, unquoted, and private companies were extremely difficult to sell because of their lack of liquidity. Faced with selling shares in a hurry at steep discounts, Woodford was caught in a liquidity trap. This eventually led to his WEI fund being suspended two years ago today. 4) Beware of concentration risk: Chasing market-beating returns, Woodford bought large stakes in a select few companies. Frighteningly, WEI often owned more than a quarter (25%+) of some companies. Highly concentrated portfolios can produce bumper gains, but may also blow up spectacularly. That’s why I keep my portfolio highly diversified by spreading my eggs globally. It easier to sleep at night!

Moving House is a new residence in Kew, Victoria. The external white aluminium screen forms a singular mass in the outline of a suburban gable roof, subtly referencing the immediate neighbours in both form and colour, while the internal spatial volume is defined by the 3 repetitive in-situ concrete vaults.Save this picture!SectionThe external screen holds in suspension the visitors’ first experience of the house – as one passes along the façade towards the entry, it deconstructs to reveal the concrete bodies in a journey of discovery and surprise. The entry sequence finishes in a recess, with raw concrete beams cantilevering out to provide partial shades and refuge, hanging plants from the gutter and grasscrete paving below – all in an Arcadian setting before reaching the Corbusian green door and a finely turned timber handle.Save this picture!© Derek SwallwellThere is no interior narrative sequence but rather a cavernous volume that receives direct northern daylight that changes by the hour and season, or nuanced indirect ambience light on the curve of the textured north facing vaults. These repetitive roof geometries are supported by in-situ off form blade columns, articulating structural clarity and compositional method.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe interior is fully glazed to the east with bi-fold doors and windows with in-situ concrete seats, so that in fine weather it can be fully opened up to the garden, allowing exposure and interaction with the outdoor space. Cross ventilation is also aided by these openings together with the glass louvres at the height of clerestory in the vaults.Save this picture!© Derek SwallwellThis project further represents our continuous interest in phenomenology and experiential journey in architecture and design.Don Norman talks about design experiences: Visceral experience stands for immediate experience, rather than use or consideration; Behavioural experience stands for experience of the product’s functionality based on use; Reflective experience stands for experience based on close consideration.Save this picture!ModelIn this project, we’ve orchestrated the above 3 experiences from the very moment one first take notice by their eyes of the blue front gate, treading through grasscrete with morning dews wetting their shoes, touching the smooth timber entry handle by their hands, bathing in light shafts from the vault windows on their skin, and gentle breezes from the cross ventilation through their hair…Save this picture!© Derek SwallwellThis project exemplifies what can be achieved by careful orchestration of spaces, manipulation of lights, choreography of materials and tactility.Save this picture!First Floor PlanIf the white metal grille defines the visual character of the house from the outside, inside it is the tone and texture of concrete that captures the imagination. On the ceiling, the concrete has been left raw and unpolished, inviting the eye to explore its variations in pattern and colour; on the floor, it is polished and sealed. The effect of so much concrete is anything but heavy or oppressive – the way it has been shaped is delicate, nonlinear and playful; it all adds up to a structure that appears sculptural and light.Save this picture!© Derek SwallwellProject gallerySee allShow lessSchool + Hospital Bucharest 2017: Building Education and Building Health ForumsConferenceAtelier Global Wins Competition to Design ‘Book City’ in ShenzhenArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/877531/moving-house-architects-eat Clipboard Photographs Photographs: Derek Swallwell Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: Sculptform, Breezway Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Save this picture!© Derek Swallwell+ 14 Share “COPY” Architects: Architects EAT Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeArchitects EATOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKewMelbourneSkylightAustraliaPublished on August 14, 2017Cite: “Moving House / Architects EAT” 14 Aug 2017.

Community News Top of the News Guild Mortgage Co., one of the fastest-growing independent mortgage banking companies in the U.S., has named David Battany as its new executive vice president of capital markets.Battany has more than 30 years of experience in the mortgage industry. He was executive vice president of product strategy for PennyMac (NYSE: PFSI) for the past three years and previously served in leadership positions with Fannie Mae for 12 years.Mary Ann McGarry, Guild president and CEO, said the addition of Battany fits with Guild’s long-term growth strategy to develop new products and expand in existing markets as well as new markets across the nation. He joins Guild on May 15.“David’s long experience with strategic product development, with trading and hedging, combined with his intelligence, thoughtful approach to strategy, and strong ethics all make him right for Guild,” said McGarry. “We are excited that he has decided to join us in this new position as EVP of capital markets and lead Guild into new areas of growth.”At PennyMac, the largest non-bank correspondent lender in the country, Battany was responsible for relationships with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and other government agencies, mortgage insurance companies and trade associations. He led new product strategies and successfully implemented 12 major new products to support company retail and corporate business objectives.At Fannie Mae, Battany was most recently its director of single-family business and managed lender relationships. He has been active in industry organizations, including serving on the boards of the Mortgage Bankers Association and the California Mortgage Bankers Association.“In addition to being impressed with their rapid growth the past few years, I was attracted to the quality of the people and culture at Guild,” said Battany. “They have a customer service culture that resonates throughout the organization. This has helped them grow, even during a year when the industry declined by some 40 percent. Their focus on purchase mortgages is also a key to their success and stability.”Guild closed $1.27 billion in mortgages for March 2015, the first time it has closed more than $1 billion in mortgages in any single month. Its 2015 first quarter total of $2.85 billion was the highest quarter in its history, up 132 percent from the $1.28 billion recorded in the first quarter of 2014.The strong quarter follows record results for Guild in 2014. Volume reached $7.4 billion, up from $7.0 billion in 2013. Servicing reached $17 billion in 2014, up 30.1 percent from $13 billion in 2013. Guild was also stronger in purchase loans, with 83 percent of loans originated, versus 57 percent for the industry.Guild offers a traditional range of residential mortgage products and funds most of its loans, which provides consistency and also speeds approvals. Its loan professionals can serve the needs of any homebuyer, from helping first-time homebuyers achieve their dreams of home ownership, often through government loan programs, to providing jumbo loans and construction loans to permanent loans through its relationship with Mutual of Omaha Bank.About Guild MortgageGuild Mortgage Co. was founded in 1960 as a home financing company for American Housing Guild in San Diego, California.

Hurricane Laura made landfall near Cameron, Louisiana, in the early hours of Thursday, buffeting the coastline with winds estimated at 150 mph. Colorado State University hurricane expert Phil Klotzbach noted on Twitter that Laura tied for fifth place in terms of the 10 “strongest continental U.S. #hurricane landfalls on record (since 1851).” The storm has thus far killed seven people, including, as reported by CBS News, a 14-year-old girl and a 68-year-old man, and it left a path of damage and ruin across parts of Louisiana and Texas. As with so many disasters before, once the immediate danger of the storm itself is past, it will fall to many in its path to rebuild—including homeowners who have lost or seen their homes severely damaged.And in a year still reeling from the ongoing health and economic impacts of COVID-19, the road the recovery could be even more difficult.”I will tell you the damage was extensive,” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards told CNN. “The wind speed was as promised. Right now I believe we got a break on the storm surge—about half of what was projected.”However, USA Today reported that National Hurricane Center storm surge specialist Jamie Rhome said that the center’s “initial analysis indicate it was as bad as feared in Cameron Parish.”According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s forecasts conducted last May, the 2020 hurricane season could produce 16 to 18 storms nationwide this year. That’s all the more troubling when you consider a recent survey finding that, while 86% of homeowners in high-risk states say they feel prepared for this year’s hurricane season, one-third haven’t taken any steps to actually prepare against storm damage.“While more than half of respondents say their homes could experience flood damage from a storm, 34% inaccurately believe that the damage would be covered by their home or renters insurance policy,” the report from ValuePenguin noted. It added that “over one-third were unaware that they would need flood insurance to protect their homes and possessions from a storm surge or heavy rains.”Many homeowners in high-risk areas also weren’t sure how much insurance they would need to be fully protected against hurricanes. More than 37% didn’t know if they had enough coverage. Moreover, 42% incorrectly estimated the average cost of repairing hurricane damage to be under $10,000 — significantly lower than the $42,000 average flood claim, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).On the side of industry impact, servicers will be implementing industry playbooks established by previous storms in order to communicate with and assist impacted homeowners, as well as monitoring and dealing with damages to any REO properties. A CoreLogic forecast earlier this week, housing damage from Hurricane Laura could total more than $88 billion.“The coincidence of two catastrophes—a damaging hurricane season and the ongoing global pandemic—underscores the importance of the correct valuation of reconstruction cost, one of the core tenets of property insurance,” said Tom Larsen, Principal for Insurance Solutions at CoreLogic. “Homeowners, mortgage lenders, and insurers need to work together to ensure properties are fully protected and insured. CoreLogic data has found a correlation in mortgage delinquencies and catastrophes, which could point to a serious issue of underinsurance trends.”A.M. Best also emphasized the likely impacted on insurance companies’ balance sheets, with a Business Wire report on a new A.M Best commentary explaining that “reinsurance may help mitigate losses, but will challenge future risk management strategies, as loss-affected areas will see increases in reinsurance rates that are already hardening.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Tracking Hurricane Laura’s Impact on Homeowners About Author: David Wharton Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago David Wharton, Managing Editor at the Five Star Institute, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he received his B.A. in English and minored in Journalism.

ABC News(LAREDO, Texas) — Nearly 300 priests and clergy members of the Catholic dioceses in Texas were identified for alleged sexual abuse of minors.In total, 14 archdioceses and dioceses in Texas released their lists on Tuesday, making them the latest in a string of disclosures by Catholic Church bodies across the country. The Diocese of Laredo announced that there were no credible accusations in its region.All of the lists name the accused priests and clergy members as well as their assignments, but they differed in the amount details they disclosed about the alleged abuses, the timing of the abuse and whether they resulted in any disciplinary action.For example, The Diocese of Amarillo, which detailed the accusations against its priests, noted that one priest was the subject of 16 allegations.Gustavo Garcia-Siller, the archbishop of San Antonio, said that the “allegations of clerical sexual misconduct and mishandling of some of these cases by bishops are tearing the Church apart.”An official from the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston noted that there were a total of 278 individuals with credible accusations included on the lists, but that it might seem like more because some names were included twice as those people moved between dioceses.Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, who leads the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and serves as the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, released a lengthy statement calling the release of the names “right and just.”“Our Church has been lacerated by this wound and we must take action to heal it,” DiNardo wrote in the letter.“These sins have done great harm to the victims of the abuse and have deeply wounded the body of Christ, the Church. Those victimized by clergy over the years need and deserve our prayers, outreach, and support,” DiNardo wrote.The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) released a statement in which it said that naming the priests and clergy members was “at least one small step.” However, it also said it was “concerned that these lists might not be as transparent as promised.”The lists included all accused officials whose allegations were found to be credible but did not name others who had been accused. Here is a breakdown of the 14 regions that reported credible cases of abuse:-The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston listed 42 priests credibly accused since 1950, including one whose recent allegations are currently under investigation. Its list did not include dates of the alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Archdiocese of San Antonio named 57 priests whose alleged abuses dated back to 1941. Two priests — one alive and one deceased — who are the subject of active investigations were not included on its list.-The Diocese of Austin listed 22 priests credibly accused of sexual abuse. The list did not include dates of the alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Amarillo listed 30 priests credibly accused since 1950. The list did not include dates of the alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Beaumont listed 13 priests. The list did not include dates of alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Brownsville listed 14 individuals credibly accused since 1965. The list did not include dates of alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Corpus Christi listed 26 priests. The list did not include dates for the alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Dallas listed 31 priests since 1950. The list did not include dates of the alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Diocese of El Paso listed 30 priests credibly accused since 1950. The list did not include dates of the alleged abuses or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Fort Worth listed 17 priests accused of wrongdoing since 1969. The list did not include dates of the alleged abuse or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Lubbock listed five priests credibly accused since it was created in 1983. The list did not include dates of the alleged abuse or when they were reported.-The Diocese of Tyler listed one priest credibly accused since 1987. The list did not include dates of the alleged abuse or when it was reported.-The Diocese of Victoria listed three priests credibly accused of sexual abuse.
