Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images center_img These are confusing times for those thinking of investing in buy-to-let. Rents, for many, are skyrocketing in most parts of the UK because of huge property shortages. Home prices are also galloping higher again following the Conservatives’s victory in December’s general election.The news flow has been broadly more positive of late, sure. But do these developments really make residential property rentals a worthwhile  endeavour?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…Maintenance mayhemWell, fresh data from Howsy should give all prospective buy-to-let investors reason to stop and think. The online lettings agent says the cost of maintaining the average buy-to-let home in Britain sits at £2,313 per year. This equates to a colossal 28% of the average landlord’s rental income.Howsy used the so-called 1% rule to calculate these figures. This assumes that 1% of the property price is required to cover the costs of upkeep, on an annual basis. The agent then calculated the average annual rent in the UK to work out the percentage.A drop in the ocean?Quite an eye-popping figure, I’m sure you’d agree. But this is just one of the whopping costs landlords have to face today. Additional stamp duty costs are due on purchase, while the taxman’s recent raid has seen critical relief on items like mortgage interest axed. Then come increased fees and lower deposits, due to the Tenant Fees Act.Throw in other miscellaneous agent fees, regulation costs and those aforementioned maintenance bills, well it’s understandable why buy-to-let investor numbers are collapsing.A better betA better way to play the property market would be by buying shares in Unite Group (LSE: UTG). This company operates in the sub-segment of student lets. And it allows investors to avoid many of the onerous costs, along with the day-to-day supervision, that normal buy-to-let operators have to swallow.A combination of booming student numbers and huge property shortages is driving earnings at this FTSE 250 share to the stars. Results today showed EPRA earnings boomed 25% year-on-year in 2019, to £110.6m.The medium-to-long-term trading outlook remains white-hot too. “Reservations for the 2020/21 academic year are in line with record levels,” the business says, leading to predictions that like-for-like rents should grow between 3% and 3.5%.  A development and partnership pipeline of some 5,000 rooms leaves it in top shape for the years ahead too.City analysts believe there’s much more to come. Current consensus suggests Unite’s earnings will jump 22% in 2020, and 16% in 2021. These hot predictions leave little wonder why the business trades on an elevated price-to-earnings (or P/E) ratio of 28 times.Irrespective of whether you think the lettings giant is worthy of such a handsome premium, Unite’s progressive dividend policy helps take the edge off. The 2019 full-year payout was hiked 14% to 33.2p per share. And the number crunchers expect more meaty hikes to 38.1p and 43.9p in 2020 and 2021 respectively. Such figures yield a meaty 3% and 3.5%.I’d much rather invest my cash here than in buy-to-let. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

When words heal: A day in the life of a clinical…

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here TAGSEmbrace FamiliesFoster Care Awareness MonthSocial Worker Previous articleApopka Police Department Arrest ReportNext article14 questions for college graduates Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear By Amanda Reineck My grandmother was in foster care back in the 1920s. In reality, there wasn’t much ‘care’ in the system back then. Unprotected by law, orphans and impoverished children were shipped out as laborers to farms and households in rural America. My grandmother spent years working for her keep after being separated from her brother. Although she searched for him as an adult, they were never reunited.Her stories always stuck with me, and I grew up wondering what causes children to end up in foster care. Eventually, it became my full-time job. Today, I’m a clinical consultant, which means I work in every facet of the foster system, including youth services, placement and, post-adoption. If there are troubled kids, I’m involved. My job is to get to know them, coordinate their therapy, advocate on their behalf, and put them in the best place to heal.It’s not easy. By the time kids are in our programs, they’re hurting. They don’t want to trust anyone, so they build a tough exterior to hide behind. Parents and social workers come to me, confused and frustrated, trying to help kids who refuse to be helped. I’m tasked with changing the way we view foster kids and explaining the reasons behind their behavior. We’re creating a new culture in the foster system: one that teaches adults to be advocates, not adversaries.I hope by writing this piece, more families will be inspired to step up and help nurture kids, like “Simon,” who come into our care. Simon’s family emigrated from Haiti, but was removed from his father’s care. He was in foster care for nine years, struggled in school and was shuffled from home to home. He was never adopted. We didn’t have extended foster care back then, so when kids turned 18, they ‘aged out’ of their entire support system. Legally an adult, Simon had nowhere to go and none of the skills he needed to survive.Later, I got the call: Simon had robbed someone at gunpoint – his way of trying to get money for food – and was being held for deportation. My phone number was the only one he knew. We scrambled to contact his relatives in Haiti and even asked a college professor on a mission trip to bring him resources. Simon hadn’t been to Haiti in over a decade, he didn’t speak the language, and his closest relative there – his mother – was living in a tent.The last time I heard from Simon was in 2012, when he told me he was scared. His family took advantage of him, and he was living on the streets. How do you move on from that? I’ve never stopped thinking – if I simply had done more for him, I could have prevented this from happening.But that kind of thinking bogs you down. You can’t let yourself be alone in the trenches on tough cases. My colleagues are my lifeline; they tell me when to step back and look at the bigger picture. We are making a difference. For every tragedy, there’s another kid we were able to reunite with family, adopt to a loving home, or support into college or a career.A few years ago, “Ava” came into our system from a failed adoption out of the Ukraine. Her adoptive parents painted a scary picture of her and claimed she threatened them. But Ava’s behavior didn’t match her profile. As soon as I sat down with her, I realized she was an average teen girl – athletic, beautiful and ambitious – who had no one to rely on but herself.People got nervous when they read her file. They saw her through the lens of stigma, instead of as she really was, and they wrote her off as a lost cause before they even met her. I reached out to Ava’s case manager, who saw the same qualities in her that I did. She became her mentor, and although progress was slow and stumbling, Ava was adopted into the family, shortly before her 18th birthday. After that, she stayed involved with the program, and we’ve had the great pleasure of witnessing her success. Ava trained in cosmetology, married, and now has a child of her own. I still wonder how much her life was changed because one person was willing to look past the labels she had been given.That’s what drives me. Both Simon’s and Ava’s stories tell the same truth: The ability to talk to someone openly is lifesaving for kids in foster care. After years of distrust, they need a relationship that’s solid and relentless. They need to know it will be there no matter what they give. And while both Simon and Ava found someone to confide in, there are plenty of other children in the system who need that positive role model. I’m using Foster Care Awareness Month (May) to encourage families to explore the possibility of opening their hearts and homes to children in need.

Charities Aid Foundation CEO pays tribute to Harry Moseley John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), has paid tribute to 11-year-old Harry Moseley, an inspiring young fundraiser, who has died.Harry was diagnosed with a brain tumour four years ago and since then has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for Brain Tumour UK and Cancer Research UK by making and selling bracelets. His ‘Help Harry Help Others’ campaign has inspired many others to fundraise for those charities. In 2009 he was voted ‘Britain’s Kindest Kid’, CAF and Five News’ initiative to recognise and reward the achievements of kids who have done amazing things to help a charity, their community, or an individual.John Low paid tribute saying: “This is a very sad day.

He was truly an inspiration and really deserved the title Britain’s Kindest Kid.”Harry’s achievement was also recognised by Richard Taylor, Executive Director of Fundraising & Marketing at Cancer Research UK. He said: “Harry was an inspiration to children and adults alike in his quest to raise awareness of brain cancer through his campaign ‘Help Harry Help Others’.

Miles-less TCU holds off Iowa State behind late surge

first_imgColin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Twitter Colin Post https://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Colin Post Linkedin Facebook Twitter + posts printIn a game where TCU was without standout freshman Mike Miles, the Frogs needed all hands on deck to avoid embarrassment against two-win Iowa State on Tuesday night.They would get just that in their 79-76 win. “Great win for us. We had some challenges without Mike and Francisco [Farabello] at the point,” Dixon said. “Not many teams would’ve been able to survive that, but we did.”Miles was ruled out shortly before the game with a non COVID-19 related sickness. After trailing for the majority of the game, TCU finally got the spark they needed to take control with just under three minutes remaining. Seconds after guard Taryn Todd hit a floater to put the Frogs up by two, guard R.J. Nembhard hit an athletic layup plus a foul to seemingly put the nails in the coffin for Iowa State.The Cyclones did not make a field goal in the final 9:20 of the game, going 0-for-12 during that stretch.Though he shot just 25% on the night, Nembhard’s poise over a full 40 minutes of running the point led TCU to their second straight-win on his team-high 20 points, seven assists and six rebounds.“I had a ugly game today, but my teammates had my back,” Nembhard said. “I want to do the same for them and keep energy going on both ends.”TCU out-rebounded Iowa State 51-34 in the game, leading to 20 second-chance points to the Frogs.Despite entering the contest a miserable 0-8 in Big 12 Conference play, Iowa State looked hungry for the upset throughout the first half, displaying that a strength of schedule that ranks sixth in the nation really can make a record deceiving.After a strong TCU start, the Cyclones hit the Frogs in the mouth, ripping off a 10-0 run to take a 12-9 lead just minutes into the game.Very clearly missing the scoring prowess of Miles, it would get a lot worse for TCU before it got any better. Iowa State hit four of their first seven three-point attempts, preying on a stagnant Frog offense to open up a 33-24 lead with 4:34 remaining in the first half.“I don’t think he’s ever missed a game anywhere,” Dixon said of Miles. “We talked to his mom [about it].”Needing a spark, Dixon tried something new, inserting freshman Terren Frank into the game. Previously, the former Sierra Canyon standout had only played in garbage time at the end of games.Right away, Frank looked ready for the challenge, splashing two threes at the end of the half to tie the score at 38 going into the break. The second triple caused such a rouse from the TCU bench that they were given a “bench warning.”“It’s been really hard to be on the sideline every game and not be able to help my team win,” Frank said. “I loved to play basketball, and I’m focused on getting myself better and staying confident.”Any momentum Frank had given the Frogs did not carry into the second half, though, as the Cyclones continued to put together run after run to prevent TCU from gaining control.Midway through the second half, Iowa State seemingly couldn’t miss, getting near 50% as a team. Meanwhile, TCU went stone cold, missing eight-straight shots during a period.The Frogs were able to stay in the game at the free throw line and an emphatic one-handed slam by Nembhard tied the game at 64 with just over five minutes remaining.“That was kind of a spark not only for me but for my teammates,” Nembhard said of his dunk. “It was pretty nice.”TCU would go on to take the lead on a floater by guard Taryn Todd with 2:45 remaining and never look back, earning their fourth conference win and keeping Iowa State winless in the Big 12.Center Kevin Samuel made sure his presence was known in the game, scoring 10 points and grabbing 11 boards to earn his fourth double double of the season. Guards P.J. Fuller and Taryn Todd added 11 points each.TCU now moves to 11-7 on the season and 4-5 in conference play, showing endurance down the stretch in two-straight close wins.“This is probably the longest stretch of practices we’ve had with everyone,” Dixon said. “At least we have some guys in the right positions now.”Things get harder for the Frogs this weekend, as they travel to take on No. 13 Texas. Tip-off in Austin is scheduled for 1 p.m. on the Longhorn Network.

The Ups and Downs of Goldman Sachs Two Quarters

first_img The Ups and Downs of Goldman Sachs Two Quarters Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Ups and Downs of Goldman Sachs Two Quarters The first and second quarters of 2016 told two different stories for Goldman Sachs as far as earnings and overall business operations: in the first quarter, everything was down; in the second quarter, everything is back up.According to the investment banking firm’s Q2 2016 earnings report released Tuesday, Goldman Sachs reported net earnings of $1.82 billion for Q2—an increase from $1.14 billion in the first quarter and from $1.05 billion in Q2 2015. Diluted earnings per common share in Q2 were $3.72, compared to $1.98 in the year-ago quarter and $2.68 for Q1 2016.Whereas challenges presented headwinds to nearly all of Goldman Sachs’ businesses in Q1, things ran somewhat more smoothly in Q2. There were still challenges in Q2 however; low interest rates, political uncertainty about global growth continued to pose challenges to Goldman Sachs’ Fixed Income, Currency, and Commodities Client Execution segments.“Despite the uncertainty created by Brexit, we achieved solid results by continuing to serve our clients across our diversified franchise and by managing our business efficiently,” said Lloyd C. Blankfein, Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs.Also, Goldman Sachs announced in January that it had agreed to a $5 billion settlement in April with the Department of Justice over the sales of toxic mortgage-backed securities prior to the crisis; the settlement was made final in April. The firm reported net earnings of only $765 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 immediately after making the announcement about the settlement.A major difference in the earnings of Goldman Sachs between the second quarter a year ago and Q2 this year was lower net provisions for litigation and regulatory proceedings for Q2 this year ($126 million). Last year during the second quarter, the firm recorded $1.45 billion in net provisions for mortgage-related litigation and other regulatory matters. Non-compensation expenses were $2.14 billion in the second quarter, a decline of 40 percent from Q2 2015 (and an increase of 2 percent from Q1 2016).“The decrease compared with the second quarter of 2015 primarily reflected significantly lower net provisions for mortgage-related litigation and regulatory matters, which are included in other expenses,” the Q2 earnings report stated. “In addition, market development expenses were lower compared with the second quarter of 2015.”Click here to see Goldman Sachs’ complete Q2 earnings report.
