Share Geithner backs bankers on push for regulation clarity KCS-content THE heads of the world’s biggest financial players met in Davos yesterday to try to mend their relationship with regulators who are crafting tougher rules to prevent another financial crisis.At a meeting on the fringes of the World Economic Forum, the bankers including the heads of JP Morgan Chase, UBS, Credit Suisse and Barclays, discussed issues ranging from financial stability to the Eurozone crisis and later told US secretary of state Timothy Geithner, pictured left, about their need for more regulatory clarity. “We are working through a range of ideas of how to work together,” said Howard Lutnick, chief executive of private investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald.Participants said Geithner shared their view about the need for more regulatory clarity.Prudential chief executive Tidjane Thiam, who co-chaired the meeting with Barclays’ Bob Diamond, said: “We have recovered, things are going better. The dialogue has improved. But we are in the middle of the process.” Participants said there was little discussion of new proposals for regulation or financial stability. whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Thursday 27 January 2011 8:36 pm Tags: NULL

See all posts by Karl Loomes 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Karl Loomes | Friday, 31st July, 2020 | More on: OCDO Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

As I write this, they stand about 60% higher than where they started 2020. While Covid-19 and lockdown have been hurting many businesses, online grocery shopping has been the great beneficiary. In this sector, Ocado seems to be the reigning king.Fundamental shift?The key question we need to ask about the upside potential for Ocado shares, is how long will this last? Lockdown obviously brought many more shoppers online, but Ocado needs them to stay. Otherwise, the boost to its numbers will be short lived.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…Personally I find it hard to imagine that many customers who have started using Ocado will not continue to do so. The move towards online shopping is a trend we have been seeing for years. As Ocado CEO Tim Steiner puts it, “As a result of Covid‐19 we have seen years of growth in the online grocery market condensed into a matter of months and we won’t be going back”.I am not so sure it is quite this clear cut, but I think there is a lot of potential for this to be true. Interestingly Ocado also looks set to benefit from the broader move to online shopping in other supermarkets.According to Steiner, Ocado has always found it easier to poach online customers from other supermarkets. This means there is potential for Ocado to benefit from a migration of sorts. New online shoppers at Tesco and Sainsbury’s may just move to Ocado.Ocado also has another massive advantage of these high street supermarkets. Though it had some capacity teething trouble when lockdown first began, Ocado has automated, cost-efficient processes in place for picking and delivery. Its supermarket rivals meanwhile, were forced to higher people to actually go around their stores picking up grocery orders. This massively reduces the profit margins.Are Ocado shares too high?Despite these positives, however, I still worry that the Ocado share price is too high. At the very least, it is not offering much capacity for upside. While its latest numbers certainly show improvement (its pre-tax loss dropped to just £40.6m), it is still not making a profit.In large part this is due to investing in its automated customer fulfilment centres as a product in their own right. There is a lot of potential in this area for Ocado going forward, so this investment may be a good move.But if Ocado can see all these benefits from lockdown and still not break even, it raises questions for investors. Ocado shares are certainly going to be ones I keep an eye on. I suspect, however, there will be better opportunities in the future. Perhaps when the share prices losses some of its gilded edge.

FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Shares in London estate agency group Foxtons (LSE: FOXT) have risen by 68% since I last wrote about this stock. Foxtons’ share price has now doubled from last year’s lows. Is there still further to go?Foxtons has issued an upbeat trading statement today, so I’ve been taking a fresh look to see whether I want to buy this stock right now.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…Sales pipeline is growing.Foxtons’ founder and chief executive Nic Budden says that sales revenue during the first quarter of 2020 was 49% ahead of both 2020 and 2019. What’s more, Budden says the company’s “sales commission pipeline has continued to grow.” This figure is now said to have risen by 17% since the start of this year.As a result of this strong trading, the company expects adjusted operating profit for the first half of 2021 to be ahead of the same period in last two years. That sounds good. But it turns out that Foxtons reported a loss during the first half of both 2019 and 2020.In fact, the company has reported an after-tax loss in each year since 2018. It seems what today’s announcement is really saying is that Foxtons hopes to return to profitability this year. That’s not new information — broker forecasts for 2021 already showed the company returning to profit this year.A real turnaround?Given that Foxtons has lost money for the last three years, it’s clear the company already had problems before the pandemic. What happened is the business performed very well in the booming London housing market up until 2016. When the market in the capital slowed from 2016 onwards, Foxtons’ revenue fell sharply as fewer homes were sold.Foxtons has since scaled up its letting operations in order to build a more balanced business. However, both lettings and sales revenue fell as a result of events in 2020.Over the last year, the housing market has been lifted by the stamp duty holiday. This is due to end on 30 June. It’s not yet clear how this will affect sales, but it seems Foxtons is still seeing strong demand for new listings at the moment.Foxtons’ share price: what I’m doingCan the Foxtons share price keep rising? I’m not convinced. The latest consensus forecasts suggest the company will report adjusted earnings of 1.2p per share in 2021, rising to 2.1p per share in 2022. These forecasts put value the company at 50 times 2021 forecast earnings, falling to 29 times earnings in 2022.It’s possible that Foxtons will perform better than expected over the next 18 months. But, on balance, I think the current share price already reflects a strong outlook. I don’t see any obvious value here, especially given Foxtons’ mixed record in recent years.This isn’t a stock I’m planning to buy at the moment. But, as always, I’ll keep monitoring the company’s performance and may change my view as events unfold.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 From the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictKnowing that septic tanks have been identified as one of the reasons for declining water quality in Florida’s springsheds, the St. Johns River Water Management District is working with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and local governments to fund their removal.“We’ve taken many steps to reduce pollution and groundwater usage, and minimize other impacts on the springs,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “We’re proud to partner with DEP and local governments to provide funding that works in tandem with other projects targeted at protecting and improving water quality in our springsheds.”“DEP is pleased to collaborate with the water management district and local communities to fund projects that reduce pollution from septic systems and better protect Florida’s iconic springs,” said Drew Bartlett, DEP deputy secretary for ecosystems restoration. “”Thanks to all our partners, and ultimately those landowners, that embrace important efforts like this to protect our environment.”The new funding targets the removal of septic tanks in the Volusia Blue, Wekiwa and Silver springsheds, replacing them with individual distributed wastewater treatment systems (IDWTS) in areas where sewer line extensions may not exist or be financially feasible. The IDWTS is an inground, stand-alone residential wastewater treatment system. The system connects to the existing wastewater lines and drainfield. Its performance is monitored remotely by the local government or utility.DEP provided funding of $1 million to match a contribution of $500,000 from the district and $500,000 from local governments or utilities. With this funding, it’s expected that approximately 200 existing septic tanks from single family residences will be replaced, with an estimated reduction in nitrogen loading to the springs of about 10 to 23 pounds per year per tank, depending on location and soil type.A pilot project using the technology was installed at the district’s Lake Apopka Field Station in Lake County in July 2017. Samples collected before and after installation indicated total nitrogen removal efficiency of 86 percent one week after installation, and up to 98 percent removal at the end of the 8-week sampling period.
