How the coronavirus will affect investors

first_imgLikewise, the share prices of companies directly affected by the impact of the coronavirus, such as those mentioned above, can also be expected to come under the cosh. Attention, though, is now starting to turn to the economic cost. In 2003, when the China-originating SARS coronavirus epidemic swept Asia, China’s economy – and especially its manufacturing industry – were a fraction of their present size. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The early signs of this are already happening. Shares in HSBC (LSE: HSBA), for instance, are down – although this partly relates to the bank’s reported succession troubles, and its exposure to the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong. The UK makes up around just 4% of HSBC’s earnings – while Asia is a massive contributor. And my sense is that it won’t be long before other luxury brands begin reporting falling sales, too. China’s consumers are prolific shoppers – and when they’re confined to their homes, they aren’t touring shopping malls.Resource-hungry China is suddenly satedSecond, companies that export to China could also see falling sales, as a slowed-down Chinese economy consumes less. Quite rightly, the coronavirus originating from the Chinese city of Wuhan is making headlines around the world. Until recently, most of those headlines related to the human impact, in terms of the numbers of people infected, falling ill, and – sadly – dying. For UK investors, the impact will come about through the effect that the coronavirus has on China’s economy, and on the economies of other Asian nations that are affected. The Chinese shopper isn’t shoppingFirst, companies whose earnings depend on their operations within China and other Asian nations could be affected. Given how tightly synchronised the world’s automotive supply chains have become over the past few years, it’s hardly a surprise that it’s the automotive industry that has felt the pinch first.

Also heading downwards are oil prices, as China’s prodigious consumption slows. Hong Kong-based analysts at Morgan Stanley claim to literally see the effect of this in the amount of air pollution they observe from their high-rise offices looking out over China: activity could be as much as 80% below normal levels, they estimate. The trick lies in being ready to take advantage of them. Such a sentiment may be in poor taste – and let’s not forget that the coronavirus is a very real human tragedy – but it’s nevertheless a reality. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Bargains will emerge, much as they did during the last big sell-off, in early 2016. South Korea’s Hyundai is already badly hit, unable to source Chinese-manufactured components. Fiat Chrysler is also talking about suspending production in some of its European operations, for the same reason. Nissan has announced the cessation of production at one of its Japanese plants, again because of parts shortages. For investors – especially UK investors – the likely impact of the coronavirus will be experienced slightly differently, at least in the immediate future, and in the expectation that a large-scale outbreak can be avoided in the UK. If Chinese production re-starts soon, the industry might quickly recover. In the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that hit northeastern Japan, the industry has worked hard to build more resilience into its supply chains.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…The workshop of the worldHow quickly Chinese production resumes, though, depends on the progress of the virus, and on the associated preventative measures.

The Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) share price is dropping. The banking sector is weighing down the FTSE 100. Several banks are suspending dividends and share buybacks, as demanded by the Bank of England (BoE). Lloyds Banking Group is among them.The BoE is working under the assumption that the dividend cuts will help to provide debt relief. The thinking is the cash will help individuals and businesses that unable to make interest payments over the next few months. 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, investors aren’t impressed. Many are selling their Lloyds shares. Is now a good time to snap them up? Or is there a better banking sector option?To answer this, I think it’s useful to compare two different banking business models: Lloyds and HSBC (LSE: HSBA). Lloyds share price vs. HSBC share priceLloyds bank shares never recovered from the financial crisis. They are now trading around 30p, where they were in 2012. Admittedly, most investors hold banking sector shares for income, not growth. But with Lloyds having to suspend dividend payments, there’s no return there either. Certainly not in the short term.HSBC has also stopped providing returns to investors. Like Lloyds, it acted on BoE ‘advice’. Currently, the bank is trading around 417p, compared with a low of 358p in 2008. It boasts a price-to-earnings ratio of 16.8. Contrast this with Lloyds P/E of 8.8. The market clearly expects more of HSBC.The difference in share price is likely due to HSBC’s more geographically diverse business model. About 75% of its pre-tax profits come from Asia. In comparison, 95% of Lloyds bank’s assets are based in the UK. Consequently, Lloyds is strongly tied to the UK economy.  This means Lloyds’ pretax profit may be more volatile than HSBC. But, HSBC needs more capital to sustain its position. Banks need capital to lend againstIt’s the need for capital that could be difficult for a FTSE 100 bank. And for HSBC especially.A bank’s assets are the value of the loans it makes. Its liabilities are the value of deposits and other borrowings it needs to finance itself.At present, shareholders are withdrawing capital by selling banking shares. HSBC’s Hong Kong shareholders are particularly upset. And extremely low interest rates are discouraging retail customers from making deposits. HSBC and Lloyds may have to find other ways of financing. At the same time, UK banks are required to loan to businesses and individuals. Unfortunately, a government guarantee doesn’t stop inflating balance sheets. This will affect the banks’ capitalisation ratios. And if it comes to it, I think the BoE is more likely to prioritise Lloyds for any capital needs.HSBC earnings per share have fallen around 5% per year over the last five years. In contrast, Lloyds has improved its EPS considerably. Even with the payouts from the PPI scandal, Lloyds’ 2019 EPS was 75% higher than in 2015.Last year HSBC paid out around 80% of its profits as dividends. Even without the current crisis, this looks unsustainable. Lloyds is relatively profitable and well capitalised. Overall, I think Lloyds is better placed to withstand the current economic headwinds and is undervalued. I’d buy it. But as for HSBC, I’m waiting to see how it responds to short-term pressures before I consider it again.

Bartz as our new Rector. Originally from Houston, TX, his path to the ministry began at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church under the attentive eye of now Bishop Claude Payne. Upon completing a Master’s Degree in Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary and ordination, his path continued as Campus Missioner at the University of Texas, where he was successful in expanding that program. He then served as Associate Rector at All Saint’s Parish in Beverly Hills, CA and most recently as Founder and Lead Minister at Thad’s, an emergent Episcopal Mission Station in Santa Monica, CA. He describes his liturgical style and practice as “exceedingly diverse” with “a deep love for the traditions of the Book of Common Prayer along with a desire to see those practices translated for relevant use in missional contexts.” His early years of ordination were spent serving in broad church, formal worship at All Saints’ in Austin, TX, and traditional, formal worship at All Saints’ Parish in Beverly Hills, CA. For the past nine years, he has been leading Thad’s, the creative, contemporary worship congregation he planted. Jimmy is a member of the Gathering of Leaders, a group of outstanding young priests and is Chair of the Board of The Episcopal Evangelism Society. He said, “Through the traditions and liturgies of our church and through innovation in ministry, I hope to communicate to people that they are children, chosen and marked by God’s love, and equip them to share that reality with others.” In his letter to St. John’s regarding Jimmy, The Rev. Canon John Newton shared, “Jimmy Bartz is a man of prayer and a man in prayer. [He] has a faith that is vulnerable enough to cry and laugh and confident enough to lead and teach.” Bishop Smylie has enthusiastically endorsed this action by the Vestry. Jimmy is a skier, climber, and angler, saying, “The majority of my deep spiritual renewal comes from time in nature mostly surfing, fly-fishing, and mountaineering.” More significant than knowing and enjoying our valley, he loves all that St. John’s Episcopal Church is and can be. He is not only on the cutting edge of ministry but also has worked outside the church with for-profits and non-profits to communicate and teach spiritual disciplines, operating from the position that “you can’t practice God’s love alone.” We are equally excited to welcome his wonderful wife Cindy, and their two children, 14-year-old son Jas and 10- year-old daughter Jade. While plans are still being made, we anticipate that the Bartz family will move here by mid-July to settle in, and he will conduct his first service soon thereafter.

Tower 1 is characterized as a prismatic structure distinctively articulated by folds, planes and carved surfaces, while Tower 2, an almost rectangular shape is defined by two solid punctuated planes. The massing of both towers responds to the internal program, the relationship with the immediate context, the views to the exterior and the privacy required for each unit. Save this picture!Unit 1: Living Room.

Both units enjoy ample morning and afternoon natural daylight, have direct access to private elevators and share a service core.  In contrast to Tower 1, Tower 2 has only one apartment per floor comprised of three bedrooms and a studio. The floor plate is organized in a linear configuration with the living areas and studio located towards the north with full exposure to the landscape that surrounds the Seminary and the distant mountains to the East. Save this picture!Lobby.

Additional landscape elements enrich the surrounding exterior zones at ground level as well as the roof deck and public terraces. At the top of the building, a large open roof deck is subdivided into two separate private terraces for the penthouse units and a public terrace. Save this picture!Swimming Pool.

Natural materials such as stone and wood and earth tones of smooth and textured surfaces will be in dialogue with the light color palette of whites, grays and glass.“The project’s transparent minimal form is a striking addition to the Bogota skyline.

The Dogtrot House is a permanent campsite. The form of this building can be traced back to the early one room cabins that were built by farmers and fishermen. As the family grew another cabin would be built and connected with a common roof. During the evolution of the design for the house I was re-reading To Kill a Mockingbird, which made reference to the vernacular ‘dog trot’ houses of the american south. The name comes from when the “old dog was too hot to trot”, the covered breezeway provided the perfect escape from t!he heat of the day. We realised with some joy that this is what we had.Save this picture!© Kilian O’SullivanThe house represents an upgrade for the clients, who are a family of long term and committed campers. They asked us to design them a holiday house up the road from one of their favourite campsites on the south coast of NSW. Their brief was; everything they loved about camping, without the pack up at the end of every holiday; a permanent, civilised campsite. The resulting building is a low impact, compact arrangement of three discrete rooms around a kitchen and campfire. Two roofs shelter the pavilions with an open bathroom s!leeved between. Separating the pavilions is the wide, open-ended “dogtrot” corridor.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe rooms are separate but in a strong relationship to one another and the landscape, like a family of tents at a campsite. The space made in the centre is for gathering, eating, reading and is open to the landscape and the breeze. One has no choice but to be outside when moving between rooms, in this way one is always made aware of the landscape and the weather. Architects are rarely presented with an opportunity to site their buildings with the delicacy and deep understanding of place that is evident in the Indigenous Australian camp and subsequently the vernacular structures of the early settlers. This project gave us that opportunity and the detailed design and material choices were all informed by this. Overall we were concerned with making an appropriate response to the place, the clients brief and the budget all of which were modest, simple but not straightforward.Save this picture!© Kilian O’SullivanThe Dogtrot house is a house that is everything you need and nothing you don’t. It is humble, poetic and without pretence.Project gallerySee allShow lessCity of Santa Monica Parking Structure #6 / Behnisch Architekten + Studio JantzenSelected ProjectsModernism in the Arab World: Bahrain’s Pavilion at the Venice BiennaleArchitecture News Share ArchDaily photographs:  Kilian O’SullivanPhotographs:  Kilian O’Sullivan CopyAbout this officeDunn & Hillam ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesAustraliaPublished on July 29, 2014Cite: “The Dogtrot House / Dunn & Hillam Architects” 29 Jul 2014.

Patterson put his stamp of approval on Hill’s leadership, saying the Southlake Carroll product “commanded the field well.”The Horned Frogs have five freshmen on the defensive line this year, including four defensive tackles Patterson said are playing well.“I’m really happy with all of them,” he said.The four tackles are George Ellis III, Terrell Cooper, Dennis Collins and Corey Bethley. Patterson said that freshman Ni’Jeel Meeking, listed as a linebacker and defensive end, has been playing linebacker so far.TCU was tied for 71st in the FBS last season in field goal percentage, making 72 percent of its field goals. Sophomore Ryan Graf made 5 of 6 field goals, while senior Brandon Hatfield made 13 of 19. Patterson said that sophomore kicker Jonathan Song has kicked really well in practice so far. Song, the presumed starter entering last season, took a redshirt in 2016 due to an injury.Patterson also likes how some of TCU’s wide receivers are bouncing back from 2016 injuries, saying that junior receiver KaVontae Turpin has “looked really sharp,” and senior receiver Ty Slanina “has looked as good as I’ve ever seen him.”TCU finished 29th in FBS last season with 268.2 receiving yards per game and Patterson is optimistic about freshman receiver Jalen Reagor who he says has “tremendous upside” as well.Patterson said that the Horned Frogs have a deeper team in 2017 after watching film Friday morning and seeing the third and fourth string players practice in the afternoon.“We have more depth,” he said. “We’re farther along than we were a year ago at this time.”However, not everything is set for the new season, with an ongoing search for a starting strong safety and backup defensive ends. Possibilities for strong safety include sophomore Innis Gaines and freshman La’Kendrick Van Zandt, Patterson said, and added that he may have to move players who are not normally defensive ends to that position if he needs more backups.“The team is, for the most part, healthy, but we had a scare yesterday,” Patterson said. “Sewo [Olonilua, sophomore running back], we thought he tore his knee up but he didn’t, he just hyperextended it.”The injury doesn’t appear to be a long-term issue.“He’ll be on the shelf for a little while, but it’s not season-ending,” Patterson said.Olonilua, a backup to starting running back Kyle Hicks a year ago, had 15 carries for 122 yards and a touchdown as a freshman.Patterson said that he will be attending former TCU running back LaDainian Tomlinson’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame  Saturday in Canton, Ohio.“I’m going to do the scrimmage, I’m going to grade it and then I’m going to get on a plane, and I’m going to go,” Patterson said.The Horned Frogs open the season Sept. 2 against Jackson State at Amon G.

Independent inquiry vindicates journalists over Ramallah violence

On 17 July, two weeks after the inquiry commission, chaired by Munib Al-Masri, was created to look into the violence carried out during a visit by the Israeli deputy prime minister to Ramallah, Reporters Without Borders wrote to Saeed Abu Ali, the Palestinian Authority’s interior minister, requesting him to convey the commission’s preliminary conclusions (see below). The report condemned the “unjustified” use of force and blamed the leadership of the security services, accusing them of a lack of professionalism. On the two days in question, police officers used disproportionate violence, despite facing no resistance. Furthermore, the security forces failed to observe the rights of those who were taken into custody. Journalists and photographers were deliberately targeted, assaulted and at times arrested by police while they were doing their job. RSF_en Help by sharing this information It recommended that the Palestinian Authority summon senior officers before a competent judicial authority and take appropriate action if mistakes were made and abuses committed. If it emerges that the police officers who carried out the violence received no orders to do so, they should also be answerable for their behaviour before the courts.The commission urged the Palestinian president to ban the involvement of police officers in plain clothes in peaceful demonstrations. Officers should be in uniform in order not to provoke over-reaction by the demonstrators.Reporters Without Borders takes note of the report’s recommendations and will check that those responsible for assaults on journalists are brought before the appropriate judicial authorities. The press freedom organization points out that such abuses contravene freedom of information and the Palestinian people’s most basic rights of self-expression. Following is the text of the letter sent to the interior minister, Saeed Abu Ali, on 17 July.Interior Minister Saeed Abu AliPalestinian AuthorityRamallah17 July 2012Dear Interior Minister,Reporters Without Borders, an international organization that defends freedom of information, would like to obtain information about the progress of the investigation that was ordered in response to the physical attacks on journalists by security officials on 30 June and 1 July.Several reporters and photographers were attacked by security officials when they went to cover protests in Ramallah on 30 June against a proposed visit by Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz. The attacks were repeated the next day and the toll from the two days of violence was heavy.Freelance journalist Mohamed Jaradat received a severe beating from four plainclothes policemen at around 6 p.m. on 30 June while covering a protest against the Mofaz visit. They confiscated his equipment and took him to a police station where be continued to be beaten. The assault continued although he kept repeating that he was a journalist and showed his press card to the policemen. He had to be treated in hospital for an injury to his left eye and multiple bruising.

That rate is up from 55.3 percent in February and from the 2013 average of 54 percent.At the same time, the average time to close in March fell to 40 days for all loans (37 for refinances and 41 for purchase mortgages), down by one day compared to February and the second month in which closing time quickened.March closings were split 60–40 in favor of purchase share, with that segment continuing to gain ground against refinances.“We continue to see the resurgence of a purchase-centric market as numbers inch closer to historical levels,” said Jonathan Corr, president and COO of Ellie Mae. “Purchases increased another three percentage points in March 2014 to represent 60 percent of loans, quite the difference from March 2013 when purchases represented only 38 percent of loans.”The share of adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) also picked back up following a slight decline in February, rising to 7.4 percent. Last March, ARMs accounted for only 2.5 percent of closed loans.Meanwhile, credit conditions tightened just slightly. According to Ellie Mae’s data, the average FICO score on all closed loans in March was one point up to 725, the first increase of the year. The average loan-to-value ratio (LTV) was flat for the fourth straight month at 82, while the average debt-to-income ratio (DTI) tightened slightly on both the front and backend, falling to 24/37.For denied applications, the average FICO score was 689 (the same as February), the average LTV was slightly down to 81 percent, and the average DTI fell slightly on the back to 28/44.last_img read more
