This momentum stock yields a chunky 4%! Is it a top ISA buy or an investor trap?

first_img Enter Your Email Address There’s a throng of great income shares in which I’d like to invest my hard-earned cash right now. But with the revenues column still sinking, DFS Furniture (LSE: DFS) isn’t one I’m prepared to take a gamble with.Evidence suggests that many parts of the UK economy have enjoyed a ‘Boris Bounce’ following December’s general election. But the long-battered retail sector has received no such respite. Data from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) illustrates perfectly the difficulties for the country’s retailers.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…According to the body, total retail sales volumes remained flat for the third successive month in January. There will be no growth in February either, the CBI Distributive Trades Survey said.The report said that “sales were seen as poor for the time of year” and that “they are expected to remain below seasonal norms in the year to February” too. Stock levels in relation to sales rose above the long-term average last month,while orders to suppliers also fell and are expected to slip again next month.Sales sinkThe CBI’s study was particularly worrying for DFS and its peers in the home furnishings market. It showed that lower demand for furniture was one of the reasons for January’s sales fall.The extent of this sub-sector’s struggle was certainly on show in DFS’s latest trading statement released last month. Back then it advised that gross sales were down 6% in the six months to December. As well as contending with “strong comparatives”, it said that “a challenging consumer environment” — and particularly so in August and September — was responsible for the drop.In better news, the small-cap retained its full-year profits expectations. Market consensus suggests profit before tax of around £51.2m for the period to June 2020 (compared with fiscal 2019’s £50.2m). This is based on the assumption that revenues will grow by low single-digit percentages in the second fiscal half.Red alert!I believe that even these modest top-line hopes could be considered a tad optimistic though. Consumer confidence is clearly at rock bottom, even in spite of that general election result and the subsequent improvement in Brexit visibility. And I worry that things could get even worse for retailers like DFS later this year amid tough trade talks between the UK and European Union. The issues that will come up could be particularly problematic for sellers of big-ticket items such as DFS.The company’s share price has ballooned almost 20% over the past two months, though fading hopes of a retail bounce have seen it trek modestly lower in January. Still, a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 16.7 times suggests to me that DFS remains far too expensive.A reading in and around the value benchmark of 10 times would be a better reflection of the retailer’s high risk profile, in my opinion. And that elevated multiple exacerbates the chances of a sharp share price drop before long. So forget about DFS’s big 4% dividend yield, I say, and put your money to work elsewhere.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The FTSE 100 has been sliding recently. However, I’d take this opportunity to snap up some high-growth shares at discounted valuations. Here are two companies I’m considering buying. FTSE 100 shares to buy One company that’s underperformed the market recently is Just Eat Takeaway.Com (LSE: JET). Year-to-date, the stock has underperformed the FTSE 100 index by around 34%, losing 28%, compared to the index’s 7% return. 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…Over the past 12 months, shares in Just Eat have lost 29%, compared to a 17% return for the FTSE 100, excluding dividends. I think this could be a fantastic opportunity to buy the growth stock. Its fundamental performance has dramatically improved over the past year. The company’s latest trading update announced it had processed 200m customer orders in the first quarter, an increase of 79% year-on-year. While the business has been given a helping hand by the pandemic, with consumers confined to their homes, management is still expecting order growth this year as the economy opens up.I’m inclined to believe this optimistic view. The pandemic has changed consumers’ behaviour, and it’s rapidly accelerated the adoption of technologies, such as online takeaway ordering. That said, the market is highly competitive. As a result, competition may restrict Just Eat’s ability to grow in the years ahead. The company is also spending a considerable amount on customer acquisition. This is holding back profitability. If spending continues at current levels, the group may have to raise more money from shareholders at some point in the future. Still, I’d buy the company for my portfolio of FTSE 100 shares today, despite these risks and challenges. Technology championThe other growth stock I’d buy after recent declines is Ocado (LSE: OCDO). Year-to-date, this stock has fallen in value by 17%. Over the past year, it’s returned just 3%. The pandemic has also given a significant boost to this company. It’s had to rapidly expand capacity in order to meet rising demand from customers. Retailers around the world have also realised the potential of having automated fulfilment centres.Ocado, which sells the technology to help retailers build automated fulfilment centres, should benefit from this. I think the company is a great way to invest in technology because the business is both a defensive supermarket retailer and a growing tech business. Still, this investment might not be suitable for all. Ocado is currently caught up in a legal battle over its technology, which could decimate its market position if it loses. Furthermore, like Just Eat, the business is also spending a lot of money to expand. This outlay could cause the company some issues in the future, especially if it struggles to raise additional financing. I will keep these challenges and risks in mind going forward. However, considering Ocado’s potential, I’d buy the stock after recent declines.last_img read more

The backyard, located in northwest of Beijing, seated at the foothills of Baihujian natural scenery, is a typical Beijing three-section compound which stands in a traditional village architecture complex. There is a hundred acre picking garden right beside the west of the rail, which extends to the hillside.Save this picture!Bird-view plan of spatial relationships-BeforeSave this picture!Bird-view plan of spatial relationships-AfterBuilt in 1983, the original yard was comprised of three houses, one facing north, the other two, respectively, orientated in an east west direction. The entrance was originally situated toward south. The relationships of each space were like simplified version of traditional Beijing courtyard where the areas appeared to be large but most of them were actually unused spaces. Aimed at accommodate three families or 10 person-group, the whole building was reconstructed by designer. Save this picture!east elevation/surrounding mountain viewsFirstly, we reserved the original north room and tore down the east and west wing-rooms. The main peak of Yanshan mountain ranges, which was used to be invisible and could only be seen through the ridge of the roof, now can be appreciated from the west side of the backyard.Save this picture!The Entrance After Reconstruction/Night. Image © Lu FeiThe local residents living on the west side of the yard. In order to get a relatively broader view of the West Mountain and preserve the privacy meanwhile, its opening was set toward east and designed to be an U-shape.Save this picture!Master Plan After ReconstructionWith the purpose of catching sunrise, large areas of windows were designed for the east elevation to ensure that the day’s first light would definitely shine into the capacious living room. The high-low form of the architecture reflects the comparison between new and old, and also alludes the relationship of rolling hills of the west mountain.  Save this picture!Comparison between New Living room and Original north Room. Image © Lu FeiThe north building of original site was about 7-meter-high, with wall painted in yellow. To avoid embarrassing daily eye contact and to meet the needs of the function, the newly-built, 6.5-meter-high building in south will become public area.Save this picture!Sunlight analysis/ Winter Solstice + Summer SolsticeSave this picture!Sunlight analysis/ Winter Solstice + Summer SolsticeMeanwhile, to bring in the nature lighting and keep off noise coming from the alley, after calculating the year-round sunlight altitude, the designer has designed high window and sunroof to ensure that 4.5 meter-wide yard can enjoy the nature light across whole year.Into The BackyardSince the courtyard is not an intact quadrangle dwelling, designer mainly focused on creating the atmosphere of the yard, customers cannot see any other architecture out of their sight and this is the logical throughout the whole design process. Even though a large area of window were built up, customers’ privacy could absolutely be ensured. The dinning room is the combination of South and north room, old and new spaces. When the four glass doors fully opened, the outdoor platform that connected with the dinning room together formed a new space and made the dinning room as twice larger as it used to be, therefore, the platform can be used as a part of the dinning room as well.Save this picture!hawthorn tree planted in the east side of the backyard.

In order to strengthen the interaction between family/group members, designer created a sunken space where the scene of“lunar night talk”can always happen there. Save this picture!Stove area of the new living room .

Having tea-tasting activities while viewing west mountain during the daytime, sleeping under the starry sky and having long talks all night, surely the experience will create a memorable night for all the customers. Save this picture!© Lu FeiPast/Old-North HouseAfter resetting the function of the old house in the north part, the entrance area formed a “grey space” before getting into the bedrooms. Going into the house through three vertical axis doors, the cold air is completely separated and residents could fully prepared before getting into the bedrooms. While all of the doors are opened, entrance space is amplified again by combining with the outdoor platform. The entrance area has two high windows on the top of the doors, which keep the yard’s privacy and at the same time enables the two bathrooms to get the nature sunlight.Save this picture!Space changes of the old-north House. Image © Lu FeiDesigner repaired the walls of the two bedrooms, used cement falling treatment to give it a new plain feeling. Since the house’s owner is a photographic lover, pictures that recorded the construction of the new backyard are hanged on the walls. As a decoration of old and new space, those pictures are also able to show a related story for the residents to be remind of.Save this picture!© Lu FeiAfter psychologically analyzing customer’s behavior, in the layout of the two bedrooms, designer reduced the bed’s area, enlarged the bathroom’s area, and therefore get the dynamic space adds capacious touch. Another detail is that the bathroom doesn’t have any doors, which ensures the relaxation and connection inside the bedroom.Save this picture!details of doors and windows.

Our living place is hidden in the skyscrapers, but we still have the dream about a warm house in our hometown with a backyard.

Bank of America and Justice Department Negotiations Stall

He practices in the areas of real estate, financial services, and general corporate transactional law. His experience includes time as an Attorney Adviser for the U.S. Small Business Administration and as General Counsel for a nonprofit organization in Dallas.

Bank of America is seeking to continue negotiations while the government finishes readying its petition to file in federal court.The record settlement sought could signal a more aggressive stance from the Justice Department in resolving investigations into the events leading up to the mortgage crisis. The current record holder, JPMorgan Chase, reached a deal with prosecutors in 2013 for $13 billion, though the bank reportedly issued fewer securities in the run-up to the crash than BofA.According to the report, the deadlock seems to be centered upon two crucial issues: the amount of the settlement and the method of payment. BofA would like to minimize the cash penalty that is paid out and instead put the money towards consumer relief. While consumer relief will be a part of the settlement, the government is pushing for a larger cash payment that will be a meaningful deterrent rather than just the cost of doing business.For its part, BofA is torn between the competing interests in putting the mortgage crisis behind it and resisting penalties that it feels are overly punitive. The bank is resisting partly because of the pressure it says it felt from the Federal Reserve to go through with the purchase of Merrill Lynch in late 2008.Still, prosecutors contend that it is unclear if the bank would have been able to legally back out of the acquisition.Representatives for both the Justice Department and BofA did not immediately return requests for comment.  Print This Post June 11, 2014 1,131 Views Tagged with: Bank of America The Justice Department Subscribelast_img read more
