Therefore, even if you have no retirement savings at age 50, it is still possible to enjoy financial freedom in older age.By focusing your capital on growth assets, you may be able to generate impressive returns. Likewise, selecting the most favourable companies and buying them through a tax-efficient account could improve your financial prospects.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…Asset allocationWhile many people use savings accounts and Cash ISAs to build a retirement nest egg, they may not be all that productive. In other words, the returns they offer could prove to be relatively low in many cases and may not help to bring retirement any closer.For example, obtaining an inflation-beating income return on cash is extremely difficult at the present time. This means that any savings you build in the meantime are losing their spending power. This may mean that you need to save more to enjoy a generous passive income in retirement.As such, at age 50 it may be prudent to focus your capital on riskier assets such as shares. They offer higher long-term returns that may produce a larger nest egg from which a more generous passive income can be drawn in retirement.Quality stocksOf course, with there being a wide range of companies to choose from it can be difficult to decide where to invest in the stock market. One potential strategy is to focus on the quality of the companies being purchased. For example, buying stocks that have solid balance sheets, strong cash flow and which have a wide economic moat. They may be less risky than their peers, and may offer higher long-term returns.Buying quality stocks at low prices is a strategy favoured by highly successful investors such as Warren Buffett. While it may not be possible to realise his level of success, his simple investment strategy can be emulated by other investors to provide an improved retirement outlook.Tax efficiencyWhile reducing your tax bill may not be a priority in the short run, it can make a real difference to your passive income potential in older age. For example, the dividend tax allowance stands at just £2,000 per annum. Therefore, investing through a bog-standard share-dealing account may eventually lead to a relatively high tax bill in retirement.One solution to this potential problem is to invest through a tax-efficient account such as a Stocks and Shares ISA. No tax is payable on any amounts invested through it, while it is simple and cheap to open online. Therefore, now could be the right time to start investing in high-quality stocks through an ISA. It could lead to surprisingly large returns in the long run that provide the opportunity for you to enjoy a generous passive income in older age.

If you think you’ve missed out on the opportunity to buy bargain FTSE 100 shares after the stock market recovery, think again.The index is still packed with top companies at reduced prices, and many could make great long-term buy- and-holds. If I had £5k to invest, or any other sum, I’d aim to buy before the next leg of the stock market recovery.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…Recent volatility seems likely to continue. But I still think the following five stocks are too good to resist today.I’d buy these bargain FTSE 100 shares todayI’m impressed by the handful of FTSE 100 companies whose share prices have held firm, or risen, during the crash. Pharmaceutical stocks AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline and food delivery firm Ocado Group spring to mind. However, right now, I’d prefer to buy top companies that were knocked by the sell-off, and are now available at bargain prices.That way you can pick them up at a discount, then hold for the long term while waiting for the stock market recovery.I’m particularly impressed by FTSE 100 companies that are standing by their dividends, as others cut theirs. This could be a sign of financial strength. On Friday, household goods giant Unilever was the latest to stand by its payout. It’s been one of my favourite stocks for years, so I’d take advantage of the 12% drop in its share price since January. Unilever now yields 3.45%, relatively high for this in-demand stock.I also can’t look past spirits giant Diageo. Its shares have fallen around 17%, yet alcohol sales are rising as Britons drink their way through the lockdown. That should continue once we’re all allowed out again, leaving the company well-placed for the stock market recovery. Diageo’s yield may seem low at 2.52%, but management tends to increase it quickly.Insurer Prudential is still paying a dividend, and now yields 3.58%. Again, it’s cheap, as its share price has fallen by a third. People still need protection and pensions. Prudential is also focused on Asia and should benefit if the region continues to recover faster than the rest of the world.Get set for the stock market recoverySo far, I’ve chosen companies selling household goods, alcohol and insurance. I’d balance this out with a utility, and my long-term favourite here is National Grid. Its share price is down around 12%, and now yields 5%. A solid long-term buy-and-hold.Finally, I’d buy either BP or Royal Dutch Shell. The Covid-19 and oil price crashes have hammered their shares, but they yield more than 10% as a result. If they can stand by those dividends, investors should reap the rewards, especially when the stock market recovery comes.It’s a great time to go shopping for shares, provided you choose them carefully.

The project is a new housing complex of 34 high-standard apartments from 1 to 3 bedrooms. It is located in a valley floor between the so-called plateau Avijl and Kauwberg, two high-value ecological sites of Uccle (a Brussels’ District). This is a very sensitive situation at the articulation of urban and rural spaces and the border of a protected natural site. Our proposal was to reinforce the existing connections with the landscape. Its formal expression is based on a sound analysis of the site topography and the morphology of the built surrounding. The apartments are organized into those two main buildings (with four floors each) around a common garden. This disposition offers a high permeability from the public space to the central garden and the open natural space of the Kauwberg in the background. It also generates a large panel of different apartments that enjoy generous roof terraces, balcony and private gardens.

Argentine Farmers Set to Flood Market with Exports

first_img Argentine Farmers Set to Flood Market with Exports Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Nov 25, 2015 SHARE Facebook Twitter Farmers in Argentina are expected to swiftly boost exports that will increase global supplies of wheat, corn and soybeans. Following the weekend election of Mauricio Macri (Mar-ree-see-oh Mah-cree) as President of Argentina, the exports are expected from a promise of Macri to help farmers made during the campaign. Bloomberg reports the country’s farmers are ready to ship an estimated $8 billion in stored crops as soon as export taxes are lifted or reduced as Macri promised. He will take office December 10th and also vowed to lift currency controls.Export taxes and currency controls were protested by farmers leading to storage of about one-third of the nation’s recent record soybean harvest, about 22 million metric tons worth. Macri is considering a 90-day window of no export taxes on soybeans in a bid to spur sales from stockpiled crops. The country has shipped $17.6 billion of grains and oilseeds abroad so far this year, the lowest for the period since 2009, according to exporters’ consortium data.

Brazile announced the decision by the court’s executive committee, which will take effect at 5 p.m. Saturday.“During this state of emergency, it is necessary to assure persons accused of nonviolent felonies and most misdemeanors are not held in jail pre- trial,” Brazile said. “The court is working with its justice partners to protect the public on all fronts, including slowing the spread of COVID-19 within our jails, courthouses and communities.”The temporary emergency schedule approved by the committee– which largely mirrors an earlier version — includes an exception for individuals previously released on $0 bail who are re-arrested for new offenses while the current statewide state of emergency is in place. Those individuals are subject to the regular bail schedule set prior to the declaration of an emergency, as are those who are accused of violence and higher-level felonies.A statewide zero emergency bail schedule — adopted to curb the spread of COVID-19 in jails and surrounding communities — is set to expire Saturday based on a June 10 vote of the California Judicial Council.Justice Marsha Slough, a member of that council and chair of its executive and planning committee, urged local courts to continue the use of the emergency COVID-19 bail schedules “where necessary to protect the health of the community, the courts, and the incarcerated.”The Los Angeles Superior Court’s temporary $0 bail schedule will remain in effect until further notice. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News HerbeautyShort On Time? 10-Minute Workouts Are Just What You NeedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty’First Daughters’: From Cute Little Kids To Beautiful Young WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFinding The Right Type Of Workout For You According AstrologyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 Countries Where Men Have Difficulties Finding A WifeHerbeautyHerbeauty 25 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News More Cool Stuff EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Government L.A.

Seriously Underwater Properties Fall to Lowest Level in Two Years

first_img Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Seriously Underwater Properties Fall to Lowest Level in Two Years Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago 9.1 million U.S. residential properties were seriously underwater in the first quarter of 2014, according to RealtyTrac’s U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report. Seriously underwater properties, which are homes where the combined loan amount secured by the property is at least 25 percent higher than the property’s estimated market value, represented 17 percent of all properties with a mortgage.Underwater properties in Q1 2014 decreased to the lowest level since RealtyTrac began reporting data in Q1 2012, and decreased from the previous quarter, Q4 2013, when 9.3 million properties were underwater.”U.S. homeowners are continuing to recover equity lost during the Great Recession, but the pace of that recovering equity slowed in the first quarter, corresponding to slowing home price appreciation,” said Daren Blomquist, VP at RealtyTrac. “Slower price appreciation means the 9 million homeowners seriously underwater could still have a long road back to positive equity.”Properties with positive equity increased, reflecting further positive shifts in the housing landscape.”The universe of equity-rich properties—those with at least 50 percent equity—grew to 9.9 million representing 19 percent of all properties with a mortgage in the first quarter, up from 9.1 million representing 18 percent of all properties with a mortgage in the fourth quarter of 2013,” the report said.Properties on the cusp of resurfacing, characterized by residential properties between 10 percent negative equity and 10 percent positive equity, increased to 8.5 million for the quarter, representing 16 percent of homes with a mortgage. Properties on the verge of recovery in Q4 2013 were 8.3 million, which was 17 percent of all properties with a mortgage.Fewer distressed properties had negative equity as well, with 45 percent of all properties in the foreclosure process underwater. Foreclosed homes with negative equity fell from 48 percent in the last quarter of 2013, and were down from 58 percent in the first quarter of 2013.”The relatively high percentage of foreclosures with equity is surprising to many because it would seem homeowners with equity could easily avoid foreclosure by leveraging that equity by refinancing or with an equity sale of the home,” Blomquist noted. “But many distressed homeowners with equity may not realize they have equity and in some cases have vacated the property already, assuming that foreclosure is inevitable.”Homes with positive equity increased to 35 percent in Q1 2014, up from 31 percent in Q4 2013 and up from 24 percent in Q3 of 2013.States with the highest percentage of residential properties seriously underwater in the first quarter were Nevada (34 percent), Florida (31 percent), Illinois (30 percent), Michigan (29 percent), and Ohio (27 percent).Major metro areas with the highest percentage of resurfacing equity were Louisville, Kentucky (37 percent), Columbia, South Carolina (28 percent), Colorado Springs, Colorado (28 percent), Little Rock, Arkansas (28 percent), and Tulsa, Oklahoma (27 percent).Major metro areas with more than 50 percent of properties in foreclosure with equity included Denver (64 percent), Boston (58 percent), Minneapolis (58 percent), Houston (54 percent), and Washington, D.C. (52 percent).

The bill proposes to increase oversight for the CFPB by:Bringing the CFPB’s funding under the annual Congressional appropriations process rather than receiving funding directly from the Federal Reserve.Replacing the Bureau’s director with a five-member bipartisan commission.Requiring the CFPB to study the use of pre-dispute arbitration prior to issuing regulations. The Bureau recently issued a controversial proposal to ban the use of arbitration clauses in financial contracts between businesses and consumers, which would open the door for consumers to file class action lawsuits against businesses.“The job of this bill is two-fold: to make wise investments with taxpayer dollars in the programs and agencies that we need to grow our economy and enforce our laws, and to tightly hold the reins on the over-spending and overreach within federal bureaucracies,” House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Kentucky) said. “This bill makes great strides on all accounts—carefully investing taxpayer dollars in programs that promote opportunity, while keeping these agencies accountable to the American people.”The bill approved by the General Government Appropriations Subcommittee is one of a series of bills lately aimed at reforming the CFPB or rolling back Dodd-Frank that are gaining traction. In mid-April, the House Financial Services Committee. One of them, the Taking Account of Bureaucrats’ Spending (TABS) Act, aimed at controlling the Bureau’s spending by establishing an annual budget; the other bill that passed in the House Financial Services Committee, would repeal Dodd-Frank’s bailout fund for large, complex financial institutions.
