These FTSE 100 shares are more hated than Hammerson. Are they too cheap for me to ignore?

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares These FTSE 100 shares are more hated than Hammerson. Are they too cheap for me to ignore?

It’s always a good idea to keep track of which shares traders are betting against, I feel. Right now, former FTSE 100 stock and shopping centre owner Hammerson (LSE: HMSO) is among the most ‘shorted’ on the UK market.It’s not hard to see why this real estate investment trust is so despised. With retail sales still sluggish as a recession bites, the owner of sites such as Highcross in Leicester and Victoria in Leeds is feeling the pain.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…A few weeks ago, the firm revealed that just 41% of rent had been collected over its fourth quarter. This was lower than the 59% collected for Q3. It’s also a world away from the 97% achieved in Q1.The longer the pandemic persists, the more pressure this puts on Hammerson’s balance sheet. Can another cash call be far away?More hated than HammersonTrading at 20p a pop, shares in Hammerson look like a classic value trap. Even if ‘bricks and mortar’ retail is able to recover after the coronavirus subsides, the huge growth in online shopping shows no signs of abating. Factor-in recent management issues and the mid-cap looks to me to be more trouble than it’s worth.Having said this, two FTSE 100 stocks — educational products and services provider Pearson (LSE: PSON) and supermarket Sainsbury (LSE: SRBY) have even bigger short positions.Have the valuations of these top-table titans dropped far enough to now make them bargains for patient Foolish investors? Uncertain outlookPearson was a favourite with the shorting community long before the coronavirus arrived. Even now, it’s still the sixth most hated stock on the market according to shorttracker.co.uk. That seems fair based on recent trading.Earlier in October, the self-styled ‘world’s learning company’ said that sales had declined by 14% over the first nine months of 2020 due to the closure of test centres and schools. Revenue in the UK was particularly hard hit by the cancellation of exams.With “larger than usual uncertainties” likely to be felt in Q4, Pearson could only say that trading for the rest of 2020 would be “broadly in line with market expectations“. That’s hardly bullish. However, one could argue this is already priced-in.Shares in Pearson currently trade on a little less than 13 times forecast FY21 earnings. That could make it a decent contrarian buy, especially as the FTSE 100 company said that online learning sales had helped to soften the blow from the pandemic. I’d certainly be more bullish on Pearson than I would on Hammerson.Cheap for a reasonYou might expect the UK’s second-biggest supermarket to be in something of a purple patch. After all, the coronavirus confined us to our homes earlier in the year. There’s a possibility of it doing the same again before 2020 ends. It would seem traders don’t agree. At the time of writing, Sainsbury is the eighth-most shorted stock on the market.A forecast price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just under 11 suggests the shares are a bargain but I’m not so sure. As well as having to cope with competition from the German discounters and the Ocado/M&S tie-up, there’s a truckload of debt on the balance sheet. Margins are wafer-thin too.Even if/when a vaccine to Covid-19 is found, I can’t see Sainsbury bouncing back to the same extent as other stocks. With dividends on hold, I’d steer clear.

Secretary Perdue Wants China Deal and USMCA Approved

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Nov 6, 2018 Perdue-wants-USMCA-and-China-dealWith the elections over, Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue says it is time get going on approval and implementation of NAFTA 2.0, or the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement. No matter how the balance of power works out, he says it’s a good trade deal.“Well the timeline obviously depends on Congress,” Perdue said. “I think it will be done in the first quarter. This is a great deal. It’s a good deal for agriculture. It’s a great deal for the American worker, for the auto industry and others, and I cannot imagine it would not be confirmed by Congress.”Perdue remains optimistic that there will be an end to the trade dispute with China. He says the resolution depends on China, with whom the U.S. has continued to have trade conversations.“It’s just a matter of when China makes up their mind they want to play by the rules the rest of the world is. It’s not right, and President Trump to his credit threw the flag and called them out on that fact that they were forcing a technology transfer of our intellectual property, and in fact even sometimes deceptively stealing it. And that’s not right.”He says you can’t have a trade platform between two countries if you’re not playing by the same rules.

He was the musical director of the club and a wonderful impresario. He lived at 351 Congress Street in 1902. Under his leadership, the club was very successful and came to be known as “The Troupe that made Throop Famous.” The club not only entertained fellow students at Throop as well as Pasadenans at various hotels, churches, and halls in Pasadena; they also traveled all over California, including San Francisco, and even went on a concert tour to the St. Louis Exposition in 1904. In 1903 alone they traveled 2,990 miles. The Archives houses two very interesting scrapbooks on the club filled with clippings of the news reports of delighted audiences; concert programs; and interesting pictures of the places the club traveled to, the hotels they stayed at, and much more.

(Scrapbook Collection – Volume 94). Photo courtesy Pasadena Museum of HistoryNo More Than Seven PoundsThe new prosperity of the late Gilded Age brought changes to the rigid class barriers and stiff, formal manners of the Victorian era. Women’s roles also began to change. Freer to move about, women enjoyed shopping trips to department stores and social gatherings in tearooms. However, this new-found freedom was not reflected in their clothing, which remained very structured in design and purpose.1890s fashion relied on layers of underclothing to shape the figure. Ladies first put on loose cotton or muslin drawers and a chemise. Next was an intricately-boned corset, tightly laced at the back to achieve the small-waisted silhouette. Garters for wool or cotton stockings attached near the center front and a waist-length camisole covered the corset. Petticoats, or underskirts, consisted of at least three yards of fabric around the bottom. The Rational Dress Society, formed in 1881, advocated no more than seven pounds of undergarments!The undergarments pictured are currently on display in Fabulous Fashion – Decades of Change: 1890s, 1920s, & 1950s.Fenyes FeatureLeonora’s Scrapbook: 1893-1901Leonora Scott Muse Curtin’s memorabilia from Stanford University’s Pasadena performances, 1897-1900. (FCP. 103.1.70-71). Photo courtesy Pasadena Museum of History“Society was out in force to hear the gay, rollicking Stanford boys” on a Saturday evening in late December when the Stanford University Glee and Mandolin Clubs performed for a Pasadena audience during the 1899 Christmas season. The concert was followed by a “social dance,” at the Hotel Green, “in which the Stanford boys participated.” (FCP.103.1.71)Leonora Muse’s one hundred page scrapbook is literally bulging with similar newspaper clippings, letters, notes, and ephemera that recall her social engagements and adventures during the era we now call the “gay nineties.” Between Leonora’s November 1896 arrival in Pasadena with her mother and step-father, Eva and Adalbert Fenyes, and the December 1899 performance of the Stanford boys, this scrapbook records several years in the life of a young society woman living in Pasadena. Tally-ho rides, cotillions and hops, card parties, charitable events, at-home receptions, golf and shooting clubs, the Valley Hunt Club, the Pasadena Country Club, Miss Orton’s Classical School for Girls, and Leonora’s introduction into society-all are represented in Leonora’s scrapbook, which is available for viewing in our Research Library and Archives.Pasadena Museum of History is located at 470 W.

Grants scheme for small businesses wholly inadequate – Doherty

first_img News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Pinterest Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook Google+ The Sinn Féin spokesperson on Finance has said that the grants scheme for small businesses announced by the Minister for Finance is ‘wholly inadequate’.Deputy Pearse Doherty said that the average grant payable to firms could be less than €900 with 280,000 micro and small business operating in the State.Deputy Doherty made comparison to grants of £25,000 being paid in the north, for those in the worst impacted sectors such as tourism, hospitality, retail and leisure.He added that the announcement fails to recognise that many micro-enterprises here have no rates base; with many operated from homes, non-rateable premises or online.

Residents describe ‘surreal’ experience

We’ll run a holiday and weekend schedule until we have power again. I’ve never seen anything like this.

That was in stark contrast to the images that were being flashed across the television screen — images of the destruction of downtown Cullman.

By The Penny Hoarder “You could see the tornado coming right at us and, then, when it got to the Black Warrior River, it turned just a little and I knew that it was going to miss us,” Keith Taylor said. “But I knew that some people weren’t going to be that lucky.”After the tornado passed though Tuscaloosa, the Taylor brothers left home in hopes of locating a friend who lives in the area hard-hit by the tornado.Keith Taylor said power lines were down everywhere and the smell of gas was prevalent. “It was scary because you knew that, with all that gas, something could blow up any minute,” he said. “Over on 15th street, it looked like a war zone. People were walking around like they were in a daze. There was so much destruction. ”Michael Dunn is hugged by his mother Patricia Dunn as they stand in the road that lead to his house which was completely destroyed after a tornado touched down, Wednesday, April 27, 2011 in Concord, Ala.

I heard later that her body was found. I don’t know if that’s true. I hope it’s not. But it’s a terrible, terrible situation here.”Taylor said the mood in Tuscaloosa Thursday was somber.“Everybody here knows someone that was directly affected by the tornado,” he said. “Everybody’s in a state of shock. There are so many deaths and so much destruction. It’s just very emotional, very.”But, Taylor said everybody also knows that it could have been much worse. “The path the tornado took was right down the heart of Tuscaloosa and it was so close to the university campus,” he said. “If it had taken a path through the campus, there’s no telling how many lives would have been lost.”So, in that way, we have to be thankful. As bad as it is, it could have been much worse.
