£5k to spend? A turnaround stock whose share price I think could explode in January!

first_img Royston Wild | Tuesday, 14th January, 2020 | More on: FSTA 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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Buoyant risk appetite is running through financial markets following a turbulent start to 2020. The FTSE 100 is marching back through 7,600 points on signs of thawing relations between trade titans China and the US. The way things are going, it looks as if the 250-or-so points that the Footsie needs to rise to hit new record tops could be just around the corner.Fuller, Smith & Turner (LSE: FSTA) might not be listed on Britain’s blue-chip index, though it’s one share I expect to also blast higher in the coming sessions. Not only could it gain on improving investor confidence, but the release of fresh trading numbers on January 30 could give it an added lift.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…Is the share price about to bounce?Shares in the pubs operator have remained largely range-bound during the past six weeks, finally consolidating after the heavy weakness that took it away from September’s record peaks of £12.30 per share. I’d argue that such heavy selling was unjustified given that Britons’ spending on leisure and entertainment activities, unlike that on retail goods remains strong, and that this should be reflected in Fuller, Smith & Turner’s upcoming financials.New trading details from one of its sector rivals have certainly raised my hopes of a sunny release at the end of January. Back on the January 10, Mitchells & Butlers announced that sales have strengthened in recent months, with like-for-like revenues rising 3.5% in the 14 weeks to January 4. And it really blew the doors off over the holiday season, with underlying sales jumping 5.6% over the three-week period and total sales hitting all-time peaks on the five main festive days.Reassuringly expensiveFuller, Smith & Turner is no stranger to releasing solid statements of its own either. In last month’s update, the small-cap said that like-for-like sales were up a solid-if-unspectacular 2.1% in the first 36 weeks of the current fiscal year, reinforcing the notion that individuals can always find money for a pint, whatever the political and economic landscape.City analysts expect earnings to drop 9% in the current fiscal year (to March 2020), though this is due to rises in business rates and wage costs. In fact, the Square Mile remains quite bubbly over the company’s longer-term sales picture, helped by the publican’s busy acquisition that which saw it take over Cotswold Inns & Hotels in the autumn to boost its presence in the heart of England. They predict therefore that profits will rebound 13% in fiscal 2021.Fuller, Smith & Turner isn’t exactly cheap, its forward P/E ratio of 20.2 times flying above the benchmark of 15 that’s widely considered decent value. Though in anticipation of some robust trading numbers next week, and thus the possibility of some serious share price gains, I think the stock remains a top buy even at current prices.

House, govt make progress on data protection bill: Minister

first_imgCommunications and Information Minister Johnny G. Plate has said the government enjoyed a “swift and dynamic” session with lawmakers at the House of Representatives while deliberating the data protection bill. The minister said the government and lawmakers had agreed on 66 inputs in the so-called problem inventory list (DIM) during the recent meeting. The House aims to complete the bill by November. Johnny expressed his gratitude to House Commission I, which oversees communications and information affairs, for the “swift and dynamic” deliberation of the bill.“The government is ready and the public is waiting for us to produce adequate legal protection to safeguard their personal data,” Johnny said during Monday’s meeting with lawmakers, according to a statement from the ministry.House Commission I deputy speaker Abdul Kharis Almasyhari, who also led the meeting, confirmed Johnny’s statement on the 66 inputs.Read also: Indonesia to conclude data protection bill in NovemberThe data protection bill has fewer inputs than other recent bills under deliberation, such as the omnibus bill on job creation, which has at least 6,000 inputs, and the recently passed revision of the 2009 Coal and Mining Law that had 938 inputs.The data protection bill, a draft of which was assessed by the ministry in 2014, reportedly adopts several principles from the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which focuses on five main areas: data collection, data processing, data security, data breaches and the right for individuals to have their personal data erased. The country is lagging behind much of the world in terms of data protection, with numerous countries having already adopted their own version of the GDPR, including neighboring Singapore and Malaysia.Topics :last_img read more

Major headwinds for housing pre-election but affordability is rising

first_img Sun shines on autumn sales Combined capitals -0.7% -8.2% $597,860 More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoPerth -0.4% -7.7% $442,716 The good news for Brisbane was that while values were softening, the apartment sector seems to have recovered from over-supply. Brisbane tower named best in Australia The good news for homeowners was that the pace of the decline in property values was now easing off relative to the past four months, especially across Sydney and Melbourne. The fear though was that the market downturn was “becoming geographically more widespread”, according to CoreLogic head of research Tim Lawless.He said housing values were lower across six of the eight capitals and five of the seven ‘rest of state’ markets in the past month.Brisbane was down -0.6 per cent in the past month, with dwelling values dropping by -1.3 per cent in the past 12 months, putting the median value at $489,832. Over the past five years though, dwelling values had actually grown by almost double digits, 9.9 per cent.Mr Lawless said Brisbane was “previously seen as a level market”. National -0.6% -6.9% $524,149 Canberra 0.0% 3.1% $595,212 CHANGE IN DWELLING VALUES Dwelling values have dropped -10.9 per cent in Sydney in the past year. Picture: AAP Image/Sam Mooy.Affordability is rising across the country as dwelling values fall, but experts warn of major headwinds for housing in the lead up to the Federal Election.The latest CoreLogic Hedonic Home Value Index, released Monday, found that national dwelling values had been trending lower for 17 months and fallen by a cumulative 7.4 per cent since peaking in October 2017.But “despite the broad based weakness, the national index remains 15.9 per cent higher relative to five years ago, highlighting that most property owners remain in a strong equity position.”“The silver lining here is that housing is now very affordable and first home buyers are proportionally much more active relative to other areas of the country,” especially in markets where values peaked much earlier (2014) such as Darwin (-27.5 per cent) and Perth (-18.1 per cent).“As dwelling prices trend lower or level out, household incomes are edging higher and mortgage rates remain around the lowest level since the 1960s,” said CoreLogic head of research Tim Lawless. “First home buyers are clearly taking advantage of the improved levels of affordability and less competition in the market.” MORE REAL ESTATE NEWS Sydney -0.9% -10.9% $782,473 The reduction in owner occupier lending was creating widespread impact across major cities. BORROWING CREDIT Credit availability was also a major headwind, with one indicator of reduced activity coming of the number of housing valuation events “which provides a timely proxy for mortgage activity”, Mr Lawless said. Those valuation events were “around 14 per cent below activity a year ago” — a trend that was also showing in ABS housing finance data in terms of both investor and owner occupier lending through to the end of January. Mr Lawless said it was the downturn in owner occupier lending that was of concern.“The value of owner occupier lending is around 2.6 times the value of investor lending, so the substantial drop in owner occupier mortgage commitments perhaps explains why the housing downturn is becoming more widespread.”Owner occupier housing finance commitments (excluding refinance) were down 17.1 per cent compared with January last year while investment credit was 24.6 per cent lower, he said.

Arguably, this stimulus won’t be as effective as previous interest rate cuts due to the high serviceability buffer applied to borrowers, whereby lenders are still required to assess serviceability at a mortgage rate of at least 7 per cent despite mortgage rates which are now available around the 4 per cent mark or even lower.” FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK Weakness in Sydney and Melbourne was now spreading, mostly because of credit availability in the owner occupier market. Picture: AAP/Matthew Vasilescu.“Values have really been edging lower in the last four months. We do see acceleration in the rate of decline in Brisbane despite Brisbane showing strong population growth, affordability, and generally improving conditions, it does look like there are some headwinds based on credit availability.”But he said the apartment sector’s headwinds appeared to have eased, with it “starting to look healthier in Brisbane”.“There’s been a rapid slowdown in construction, and the local unit market is looking a lot healthier,” he told The Courier-Mail. SPREAD Darwin -0.6% -6.8% $400,316 Brisbane -0.6% -1.3% $489,832 He expected the housing market to “continue to be affected by uncertainty related to the federal election, lending policies and more broadly, domestic economic conditions”.“Federal elections generally cause some uncertainty, which is likely amplified more so this time around considering the potential for a change of government which will also involve significant changes to taxation policies related to investment.”“No doubt, some prospective buyers and sellers are delaying their housing decisions until after the election, however, there is no guarantee that certainty will improve post-election, considering the impact of a wind back to negative gearing and halving of the capital gains tax concession is largely unknown.”“It seems a reasonable assumption that removing an incentive from the market would result in some downwards pressure on activity and prices for a period of time.”“If elected, the Opposition have flagged that changes to the capital gains tax discount and negative gearing would take effect from January 2020.” (Source: CoreLogic Hedonic Home Value Index, March) Champagne taste on beer budget Combined regional -0.4% -2.1% $376,728last_img read more
