(Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. Image source: Getty Images FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Jonathan Smith | Tuesday, 9th March, 2021 | More on: NXT The Stocks and Shares ISA deadline for 2020/21 comes at midnight on April 5. I’ll let you into a secret, I’m not planning on staying up for it! The ISA allowance means I can use £20,000 in any year within the ISA and any stocks I buy in that wrapper are shielded from tax. This could be dividends, or profit if I sell a stock that I bought. I currently do have leftover allowance to use, so here’s a FTSE 100 stock I’m looking to buy before the ISA deadline.Next in lineNext (LSE: NXT) is a well-known British fashion retailer. Over the years, it’s expanded into homewares and beauty products. The share price has performed well over the longer term, up 25% over one year and 42% over two. Personally, I think this could be a good stock to buy now ahead of the ISA deadline.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…Next has positioned itself at the lower-to-middle price end of the market (with higher price ranges for premium beauty) and its online strength means it has done well during the pandemic. But coming out of the Covid period, I think we could also see a sweet spot for the brand. With disposable income rising, I feel consumers will have more social events to go to, and will continue to buy its fashion offer, as well as patronising its still-new premium beauty chain. Its homewares could also prosper as consumers now working from home by choice continue to improve their living spaces.I think we’re already starting to see the good news for the firm. In the Q4 trading period, full price sales were down 1.1% versus 2019, much better than the expected guidance of -8%. Another indication of this is the increase in new customers. Active online customers were up 24% year-on-year. I think this could continue well into the rest of the year, so would look to buy the stock ahead of the ISA deadlinePros and consAnother reason why I like Next is its robust financials. The pandemic has hit retailers hard, with many struggling with cash flow issues. Next has managed its finances well. Credit sales reduced significantly, helping overall cash flow. It also managed to increase the balance paid by existing credit customers. It noted that “in December last year customers paid off 12.2% of their balance, this year they paid 15.5%, so the proportion of balance paid increased by +28%.”Along with better cash flows, its earlier Q3 trading update commented that net debt at year-end was due to reduce by £487m to £625m. Again, considering the difficult trading environment during 2020, this impresses me.But if I did buy the FTSE 100 stock before the ISA deadline next month, what are the risks? One risk is that Next has a large physical presence of 500 UK stores. Yet with the amount needed for business rates, along with low footfall, Next might have to decide that physical stores simply aren’t worth the costs. In the short term, this could be seen as a negative. It also has risks that come with any business based on fashion trends.But on balance, I’d still look to buy Next as a FTSE 100 stock for my ISA right now.center_img Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

Overnight Breaking News: Suspect shoots and robs victim in Apopka

first_img Reply With that humongous mountain of tree debris at Appy Way at NW, that tells me some of these streets and subdivisions are getting picked up…..I wonder which ones? Bet I can guess…. Also debris dropped off at Sandpiper and Park, and the one on Cleveland. Maybe FEMA will get the discarded live Christmas trees, after Christmas, in with the same piles of hurricane debris to mulch up? Maybe we should sink some of the existing hurricane tree debris in Lake Apopka to make some fish attractors? I don’t think the fish there will care if it is the discarded Christmas trees to be sunk, or regular trees, you think? I don’t think they are picky fish at all. From the Apopka Police DepartmentTonight at approximately 7:53 PM the Apopka Police Department responded to 775 South Orange Blossom Trail (the Apopka Land Shopping Center), for a shots fired call. Upon arrival it was discovered a black male suspect robbed a black male victim of jewelry. During the struggle shots were fired striking the vistim in the leg. The victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.The APD established a perimeter and APD K-9 conducted a track with negative results. Businesses in the plaza are cooperating with the investigation APD detectives are on the scene following up on leads.The suspect remains at large and anyone with any information about this crime or the suspect is urged to contact Crimeline at 407-423-TIPS. UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 October 8, 2017 at 9:25 pm We were coming through town on 441 when all of the first responders were flying to the scene. We saw fire trucks, ambulances, and then several police cars. I thought it was a wreck upon 436. My husband said maybe it was a robbery. We saw 7 vehicles speeding along 441 heading east to get to this robbery and shooting, although we didn’t know what was happening at the time. October 8, 2017 at 6:21 pm Mama Mia Mama Mia Gov.

Mama Mia October 8, 2017 at 3:54 pm Magee, I will be more careful in the parking lots now, day or night, since learning of this robbery and shooting. A long time ago I knew this older lady that used to live near me, in the past. One day, I was stopped at the traffic light at Park Av. and Main St. waiting to turn toward Orlando direction. I was sitting there waiting on the light, for the turn signal, and I heard what sounded to me like a cat screaming, and I started looking around, and couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. I lowered my window, and then I realized the sound was coming from Walgreen’s parking lot, and I looked to see, and it was the older lady that I knew who I used to live near, and there were two older boys trying to snatch her purse, and she was screaming, and fighting back at them. A female employee at the entrance was hollering for the male employees to go after them. It was in the morning in broad daylight. Then the light turned, and I had to move on. I don’t know how the situation turned out. 10 COMMENTS Reply October 8, 2017 at 8:23 pm I saw that there was a robbery and shooting in front of the Big Lots in Apopka. It frightened me because I had been in Big Lots about that time, the night before. I bought what I wanted, and came out of the store, and my husband was sitting in our truck with my little dog waiting on me. I headed over to our truck, handed him my bag, and told him I wanted to walk on down to the Dollar Tree, before we left. He told me that it was too dark around there, and that I didn’t need to walk down there in the pitch black darkness, and that he would take me down there and drop me off at the door, and would look out for me, to come out of the Dollar Tree and pick me up there, at the door. It was very dark in that parking lot. My husband looks after me. I didn’t feel like there was any danger in walking on down to the dollar store. I was wrong apparently….. October 8, 2017 at 8:20 pm Reply Magee Reply Please enter your comment! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Irma hit on Sept. 10, and Sept. 11th, that was early Sunday morning on into Monday. The following Thursday is our regular tree limbs/yard waste day. Thursday after the storm, was the 14th. There was no picking up here then. Ok, then the next Thursday came and went, and no pickups here on this street either. Then the 28th, and no pickup, and now the 5th of Oct. has come and gone, and still no vegetative debris removal on our street as far as limbs. So since then, Friday came and went, Saturday came and went, and now Sunday……Now on Saturday, we did have a truck picking up other stuff, some furniture that was out, and an old toilet, and a few other miscellaneous stuff, but no limbs. Sometime Saturday another neighbor got their leaves that were bagged picked up…..we have taken our debris to the Golden Gem site several trips over and over, our neighbor kept asking us when the trucks were coming, and they decided to haul their debris off too, to a site. The other neighbors are still waiting, and are wondering why the trucks stopped by and only picked up certain things here and there from the piles. Ours and our next door neighbor’s stuff is gone, except for some big chunks of wood that would break our backs to try to move and lift them, which we didn’t attempt. I saw the mountain of tree debris out on Appy Way near NW and the big claw machine was going at it. I know they are trying, and that there is so much debris everywhere, but people are wondering what is going on? With all of the bending, stooping, hauling off, digging, lifting, and dragging, I am so tired it is not funny. I am feeling aches, pains, and soreness like never before in my lower back and arms, and I am stove-up, and stiff as a board, and can’t hardly get out of the bed in the mornings. Pitiful really, thanks to you, Ms. Irma. October 8, 2017 at 9:44 pm Mama Mialast_img read more

Trainline uses its social media channels to promote charities during coronavirus

first_imgHere is the coverage on Facebook: It isn’t just announcing charity names and sums awarded: it is explaining some of the issues tackled by these charities and faced by their service users: National Emergency Trust Coronavirus appealIt started this approach on 9 April when it announced that it was supporting the National Emergency Trust’s Coronavirus Appeal. Why this is significantPlenty of companies use their social channels to promote their charity partnerships, but this is the first example we’ve spotted of a company setting out to highlight a range of charities to make the most of its limited. This stands out because Trainline is:dedicating a thread to each charityraising the issues that a charity deals withpromoting one of the charity’s fundraising eventslinking to specific areas or information on the charity’s site, not just its front pageinviting their followers to share and highlight other related charities in their area.It’s a model that could of course easily be replicated by many other companies who find they don’t have quite the variety of social media updates that they normally do, but still have an audience.Indeed, given Trainline is one of the many companies that is taking part in the Posters for the People initiative of sharing artwork with positive messaging, perhaps some of those brands will emulate Trainline’s approach. Devon and Somerset Air AmbulanceTrainline operates nationally and in Europe, so it is attempting to profile charities operating in different parts of the UK. First up was Devon and Somerset Air Ambulance. Trainline is even highlighting fundraising events: Howard Lake | 1 May 2020 | News Again, they published a whole thread on the work of St Martins, concluding with a request that followers tag other homelessness charities near them to highlight their work. On 24 April it followed this up by a whole thread on the appeal and some of the organisations that were benefiting from it: About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Each charity is the subject of a thread of messages, covering a range of different issues, and calls to action. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 They even signed off by inviting followers to tag other critical care charities across the UK with details of where they are based “so our followers know how to support them”.  St Martin’sThe next charity to feature in Trainline’s charity spotlight is St Martins, the Norfolk homelessness charity. More good corporate newsIf you need some another example of a company making creative and positive use of its resources during coronavirus lockdown, here’s Boots: Individual charitiesThis week they stepped up their activity by highlighting individual charities, and inviting nominations from their users of other charities that they might profile.

Southern States Dominating Non-Current Loan Volumes

first_img January 22, 2020 1,650 Views  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: default Foreclosure loans Southern states including Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Arkansas held some of the largest volumes of non-current loans in the country. As of December 2019, Mississippi holds the highest volume at 9.99%, though this is a month-over-month decline from November’s 10.44%, and a 0.93% decline year-over-year, according to Black Knight’s First Look at December 2019 data.All top five states in non-current percentages have seen marked declines over the year, with the biggest decline in Louisiana, where the non-current percentage fell by 6.81% from December 2018.The lowest non-current percentages, meanwhile, remain concentrated on and around the East Coast, with Colorado still holding the lowest rate at 1.74%, down from November’s rate of 1.81%. Behind Colorado falls Washington (1.77%), Oregon (1.84%), Idaho (1.91%), and California (2.01%).As non-current loans have fallen across the country, default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions as foreclosure filings fell too. According to the Year-End 2019 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report from ATTOM Data Solutions, foreclosure actions were down 21% from 2018 and down 83% from a peak of nearly 2.9 million in 2010.Repossessions dropped as well in 2019, down 37% from 2018 to 143,955 total properties.“The continued decline in distressed properties is one of many signs pointing to a much-improved housing market compared to the bad old days of the Great Recession,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer for ATTOM Data Solutions. “That said, there is some reason for concern about the potential for a change in the wrong direction, given that residential foreclosure starts increased in about a third of the nation’s metro housing markets in 2019. Nationally, the number also ticked up a bit in December. While that’s not a major worry, it’s something that should be watched closely in 2020.”Black Knight also noted that repayment activity ticked upward at the end of 2019, indicating a “flattening effect on refinance activity.” After falling by 19% in November, prepayment rates increased in December, and Black Knight suggests that the recent leveling off of interest rates has had a flattening effect, but prepayments are still up 126% from this time last year.Black Knight will release its complete December 2019 Mortgage Monitor report on on Monday, February 3.

Salvation Army faces growing theft problem

first_img The pilfering of items donated to the Pike County Salvation Army Thrift Store at 509 South Brundidge Street in Troy during after-hours continues to be of concern to Kim May, director of the Pike County Salvation Army Service Center and Thrift Store, and her advisory board.May told the board at its June meeting that pilfering reached an almost unbelievable height when the planter on the storefront was stripped of the lantana and rosemary growing there.“I had planted lantana and rosemary because they can take the heat and the sun,” she said. “We want the service center and store to look nice and flowers add a lot.” By Jaine Treadwell By The Penny Hoarder Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Other times, they will rummage through the bags, take what they want and the rest is scattered for us to cleanup.  Some people will even go through the dumpster. If the Salvation Army puts an item in the dumpster, then it obviously has no use.” May said pilferers will often drag bags from the dumpster down the hill and into the bushes behind the businesses and go through the bags.“A hole has been carved out in the bushes for them to hide in and go through the bags,” she said. “You can imagine the mess they leave.”May said there is no limit to what the pilferers take.“Someone has stolen the awning off the back door,” she said. “This is a huge problem for us. It discourages people from leaving donation items after hours and on weekend and that means a loss in revenue for our programs.

The money from those sales is used to help stock our food pantry and provided necessary services to those in temporary need.”May laughingly remembered the time an employee at an across-the-street business turned the trick on one pilferer who picked up the donation bags left after hours.“He put a possum in a black, plastic bag and tied it up and put it at our door,” May said. “A camera caught a lady picking up the donated items which included the bagged possum. I would like to have seen what happened when she opened the bag and a possum came out on her.”May said it wouldn’t take many possums jumping out of donation bags to reduce the number of thieves at the Salvation Army on South Brundidge Street.
