Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Market confidence is bubbling nicely in early December trade as hopes of a Covid-19 vaccine improve. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are continuing to claw back ground lost during the earlier stock market crash. And I’m quietly optimistic that we could be on the tip of a new bull market for UK shares.I’ve kept the faith and continued buying British stocks in 2020 despite the uncertain economic environment. And I plan to keep building my Stocks and Shares ISA as the outlook for corporate profits tentatively improves. Here are a couple more cheap UK shares I’m thinking of buying for 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…1) Tate & LyleFTSE 250 colossus Tate and Lyle (LSE: TATE) is a brilliant way to hedge one’s bets in the current climate. A breakthrough on the Covid-19 vaccine front — and a subsequent strong and sustained recovery in the global economy — will allow the food ingredients giant to thrive on improving consumer spending. However, the essential nature of its product ranges means that its profits should remain strong even if the coronavirus crisis drags on in 2021.I’m also encouraged by recent acquisition activity the UK company has executed to boost long-term profits growth. It boosted its position in the stevia sweetener market by buying Sweet Green Fields for an undisclosed sum. The move will boosts Tate & Lyle’s position in the gigantic Asia Pacific market and brings a fully integrated supply chain under its umbrella. It adds more product ranges to the company’s top class ingredients and foods stable too.Today Tate & Lyle trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12 times. The foodie carries a mighty 4.8% dividend yield, too. These figures make it a terrific all-round UK share for value chasers.2) 4Imprint GroupPromotional products manufacturer 4Imprint Group (LSE: FOUR) is a top stock for even the most nervous of investors. As the boffins over at Edison recently commented, this UK share “retains a strong, cash positive balance sheet” despite the crushing impact of Covid-19 while is also has “low fixed costs and capital requirements”.But enough of the bearish stuff. I reckon profits at 4Imprint will thrive during the economic recovery. This UK share might also be among the first to bounce back in 2021 as marketing spending by business tends to rebound during the early part of the economic cycle. The FTSE 250 company can expect demand for its branded pens, umbrellas, notepads, and other paraphernalia to fly should a vaccine be rolled out in the weeks and months ahead.Like Tate & Lyle, 4Imprint isn’t just a top buy for any 2021 stock market recovery. As Edison’s analysts continue, the business has “a market-leading position” in a hugely fragmented sector. And it has considerable balance sheet strength to embark on fresh acquisition activity to bolster future earnings growth too. Today this UK share trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.1, making it a bargain by anyone’s standards.

There are three companies I believe are well-positioned to earn handsome returns as growth accelerates. As such, I reckon these are some of the best shares to buy today and would add them to my portfolio.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…FTSE 100 sharesThe first company on my list is the financial data group Experian (LSE: EXPN). This company has carved out a niche for itself in the gathering and processing of consumer financial data. Its size and experience means it has a virtually unrivalled trove of consumer data, which gives it a substantial competitive advantage. As the global economy recovers, I think there will be increased demand for consumer finance products. This could translate into a boon for Experian, which makes money when financial services firms request data. These are the primary reasons why I think this is one of the best shares to buy today.However, the firm also faces significant risks and challenges. The largest of which is the potential for a cyberattack, which would decimate the company’s reputation with consumers and institutions alike. Despite this risk, I’d buy the FTSE 100 company for my portfolio. Best shares to buy todayAnother company I’d buy for my portfolio of FTSE 100 stocks is DCC (LSE: DCC). This is another business that has a solid competitive advantage. In DCC’s case, it’s the firm’s size.Logistics can be a low margin business, but DCC can use its economies of scales to increase margins and profitability. Management has also been reinvesting profits into acquisitions to improve growth. The company’s latest acquisition was primary-care supplier Worner for €80m.This strategy has enabled the company to increase pre-tax profit from £248m for the financial year ending March 2017 to £311m for the fiscal period ending March 2020. I’m confident management can continue with this strategy, which is why I’d buy the FTSE 100 business for my portfolio of growth stocks. That said, it can be easy for companies to spend too much on acquisitions. Considering the low profit margins in the distribution industry, if DCC ends up overspending, it could quickly find itself in a precarious financial position. That’s the main risk facing the group. Building back betterFinally, I’d acquire steel group Evraz (LSE: EVR) for my portfolio. Booming demand for steel has sent the price of iron ore up to record levels recently. I reckon this suggests the outlook is bright for steel producers such as Evraz.The company owns every stage of the steel production process, from the iron ore mines to the steel foundries. Once again, this gives Evraz a competitive advantage and an edge over other groups. It has also shown a willingness to return lots of capital to investors when profits are high.Analysts are forecasting a dividend yield of 8.1% on the shares for the year ahead. However, this is just a projection at this stage. There’s no guarantee the stock will yield 8.1% this year.What’s more, commodity prices can fall just as fast as they rise. As such, Evraz’s high profits may not last for long. Even after taking these risks and challenges into account, I’d buy the FTSE 100 stock today.

When designing the set of three family row houses in the village-like context of Liboc in Prague 6, our aim was to pay particular attention to the local context and define a volumetry and a choice of materials that would refer to traditional architecture of the surroundings as well as to the specifics of the plot. The trio of family houses is set in the existing context along Libocká street in this historical part of Prague, formerly an independent village.Save this picture!© Martin ČeněkTo the east of the new building, there is a row of houses of the original tissue that strictly respects the street boundary line. To the west, the plot is adjacent to a sloping road leading to a former cemetery at the historic Hvězda preserve, which is neighbouring the plot on the south side. Behind this road, a more expressive recent villa is located, considerably retreated from the street line and with dominant corner. The plot is sloping steeply to the north resulting in a configuration where the entrances from the street level are one floor below the garden, naturally separating public and private exterior spaces.Save this picture!© Martin ČeněkThe simple white volume which strictly follows the street boundary contains two of the houses, its length along the street reflecting the typical plot width of the old village, while the end section clad in grey aluminium turns away to reflect the neighbour, and its exceptional position means that it contains a larger home of the client himself. Although the volumes and materials are referring to traditional architecture, they are interpreted as a simple and modest homogeneous mass with minimal detailing. All three houses are distributed on four levels, the lower one being in contact with the street, while the second is open to the garden.Save this picture!Ground floor and first floor plansThe bottom floor is set back to give a feeling of lightness to the simple monochromatic volumes above. The parterre of the entire building is structured by two blocks containing staircases; the rest of the ground floor is set back significantly below the main mass of the building. In this way the volume allows the extension of a very constrained street profile, but at the same time the historical street boundary line, as well as the height of the roof cornices and ridges are firmly held. Service areas of the house are located towards the busy and noisy street on the north side of the house, which (along with the energy concept – the building is designed in passive house standard) logically implies a lower fenestration of this facade.Save this picture!© Martin ČeněkThe interior design of the houses aimed to attain overall simplicity, clarity and functionality of the spaces, and with a moderate choice of materials – concrete, white plaster, oak wood and white painted furniture surfaces we tried to achieve unity with the external appearance of the buildings, as well as with the exterior spaces. The two houses that form one architectural volume from the exterior were inside also treated in a similar manner, with the predominant monochrome tonality and rather austere detailing.Save this picture!© Martin ČeněkThe third, significantly larger house for the family of the client offered the possibility of a different solution, including a more dramatically shaped staircase which plays the role of a hinge – an articulation of the building where the entire volume bends –, wooden wall sidings and visible concrete surfaces complemented by built-in furniture in a combination of white lacquer and oak veneer. In addition to the overall concept of interior design, all built-in furniture was designed and appropriate free standing furniture was chosen to supplement the final appearance. The client´s contemporary art collection was also an important aspect of the interior design.Save this picture!© Martin ČeněkProject gallerySee allShow lessHarvard GSD’s 2020 Wheelwright Prize Open for SubmissionsArchitecture NewsOld Spitalfields Market Holdings / Foster + PartnersSelected Projects Share Three Row Houses / Martin Cenek ArchitectureSave this projectSaveThree Row Houses / Martin Cenek Architecture “COPY” Houses Lead Architect: Year: 2018 Martin Čeněk CopyHouses•Prague 6, Czech Republic Manufacturers: AutoDesk, BoConcept, GRAPHISOFT, Brokis, Catalano, Foscarini, Mitsubishi Electric, Moooi, Osmont, PREFA, TON, Zucchetti, Armontis, Dare, RED, Rendl light studio Area: 293 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928405/three-row-houses-martin-cenek-architecture Clipboard Czech Republic Architects: Martin Cenek Architecture Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928405/three-row-houses-martin-cenek-architecture Clipboard CopyAbout this officeMartin Cenek ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookPrague 6Czech RepublicPublished on November 14, 2019Cite: “Three Row Houses / Martin Cenek Architecture” 14 Nov 2019.

Cordray said the burden during this crisis has been mostly falling onto the shoulders of the consumers—many of which are running out of savings and unable to pay mortgages. He said this crisis needed actions, enforcement, and oversight from the CFPB, which he said initially thought of this crisis as strictly business-focused. Cordray points out the issues facing mortgage servicers, who are offering deferred payments to consumers during this crisis. He added that if these servicers are being held accountable, consumers will not be given relief. “I think it’s time for the consumer’s bureau to step up,” he said. Cordray added one of the issues facing servicers is there are many in the mix, and the nonbank servicers are not as capitalized and not as well prepared to handle downfalls. He said one of the items that he and the Financial Stability Oversight Council were working on before his departure was properly capitalizing servicers. Also, he said mortgage servicing, for the most part, is an easy job when things are going well. However, during downturns, volumes increase, and servicers become overwhelmed. Cordray said nobody could have been prepared for this, but mortgage servicers could have done more than what they did. He added that after the Great Recession 12 years ago, it would be very difficult to go back to a community-based lending model. Cordray said advancements had been made in the economy and it has made life for consumers better, but it does come with risks. Cordray said the Great Recession was mostly driven by foreclosures, for both consumers and business, and that doesn’t bode well for the economy. He said courts become clogged, the time frame for foreclosures stretches out, and the end results is an abundance of abandoned homes. “We saw how dysfunctional it was during the last crisis,” he said, adding foreclosures need to be used as a last resort.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago 2021-05-27 Christina Hughes Babb Zombie-Property Numbers Are Rising in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Home / Daily Dose / Zombie-Property Numbers Are Rising Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago 3 days ago 655 Views Share Save A very small percentage of the country’s total stock of some 99 million residential homes were zombie properties—pre-foreclosure properties that have been abandoned—in the second quarter of 2021, according to ATTOM Data Solutions, but the numbers have risen since the first quarter.One of every 12,256 homes in the second quarter sit empty in the foreclosure process, up from one in 14,825 in the first quarter of 2021 and up from one in 12,967 in the second quarter of last year.How are zombie homes on the rise in the midst of a nationwide foreclosure moratorium? Could this be a signal of things to come once the moratoria lift? The pros say they need more time and data to determine definitive answers.”The latest numbers show a spike in zombie properties during the second quarter that stands out compared to recent times, especially given the moratorium. It may simply be due to lenders foreclosing on homes that were already abandoned. We are watching that closely to see what it means and whether it’s the start of new trend,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer with ATTOM Data Solutions. “But even with the increase, zombie foreclosures are still just a dot on the housing market radar screen, which is more testimony to how strong the housing market remains. You can still walk around most neighborhoods around the country and literally not find a single empty house going through the takeover process, and that remains very good news for current homeowners, as well as potential homeowners.”RealtyTrac’s EVP Rick Sharga also offers his insight:”We’ve seen this before—government officials who are trying to prevent unnecessary defaults delay foreclosure proceedings for so long that the distressed borrowers simply abandon the property before the foreclosure takes place,” Sharga said. “There are probably two things behind the increase in Zombie foreclosures: First, the fact that most foreclosure starts today are on vacant and abandoned properties; and second, there were also almost 250,000 loans in foreclosure prior to the pandemic, and they’ve been in limbo for over 14 months. Very likely that some of the borrowers in those properties have moved on, but lenders have been prohibited from beginning foreclosure proceedings on those loans.”The highest numbers of zombie properties are located in northeastern and midwestern states such as New York (2,052), Ohio (1,033), Florida (1,021), Illinois (897), and Pennsylvania (401).More details are included in the full report at ATTOMData.com.

KABC-TV(THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.) — A college night at a popular music bar in a Southern California suburb ended in bloodshed when at least 12 people were shot dead. Witnesses recounted how they hid under tables, jumped through windows and ran for their lives.A gunman burst into the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks late Wednesday night, firing multiple rounds at patrons and throwing what appeared to be smoke bombs.Teylor Whittler, 19, was celebrating her friend’s 21st birthday inside the packed Western-style bar, which hosts a “college night” on Wednesdays that is open to people 18 and over.“I was on the dance floor dancing and all of a sudden I heard the shots,” Whittler told ABC News in an interview Thursday on “Good Morning America.”“I turned around and I saw it was an actual person with a gun and I couldn’t believe it at first, but my initial reaction was to run and take cover,” she said. “A bunch of people dog-piled on top of each other.”Whittler recalled how some men in the crowd got down to block her and others on the ground, with their backs to the shooter, “ready to take a bullet for every single one of us.”When there was a break in the shooting, dozens of people tried to flee out the back door and jump through windows, she said.“I ended up getting caught on the ground and stumbled over by multiple people. I got hit in the head by a stool that was being picked up to throw through a window,” Whittler said. “Some guy came up behind me and grabbed me and said, ‘Get up, we have to go.’”Whittler’s friend, Sarah Rose DeSon, said she saw what appeared to be smoke grenades.“I was lucky enough to get out alive,” DeSon said on “GMA.” “It does not feel real. I’m in shock, I’m in shock. I’m terrified.”Their friend, Nellie Wong, whose 21st birthday they were celebrating, said their group was at the bar with a couple of other friends whom they haven’t heard from since the gunfire broke out.“We don’t know if they’re still in there,” Wong said. “If they got out, we don’t know where they are.”John Hedge said he was with his stepdad near the bar’s entrance when the shooting began and he thought it was a “joke” at first until he saw people drop to the floor.“I was talking to my stepdad and I just started hearing these big pops. Pop, pop, pop,” Hedge told ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV. “There was probably 12 shots before I got out the front door.”A witness who gave only his first name, Matt, said he hid until he heard the gunman reload and then used a barstool to smash a window to help get others to safety.“All I did was grab as many people as I could and pulled them underneath the table and then till I heard a break in the shots and then we got people out of there as much as we could,” Matt told KABC-TV. “I know where I’m going if I die, so I was not worried to sacrifice. So all I wanted to do was get as many people out of there as possible.”Authorities said the alleged shooter was later found dead inside an office adjacent to the entry of the bar. The suspect has been identified as Ian David Long, a 28-year-old U.S. Marine Corps veteran, according to Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean.Long was allegedly armed with a legally purchased .45-caliber Glock handgun that had an extended magazine, Dean said.At least 12 people, including Ventura County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus, were fatally shot and at least 13 others injured, Dean said. Those 13 patients were treated at local hospitals for gunshot wounds or cuts and have since been released, officials said.Thousand Oaks, located about 40 miles west of Los Angeles, is considered to be among the safest cities in the country, with good schools and low crime. It ranked third in America’s safest cities this year, according to Niche, a Pittsburgh-based company that researches neighborhoods and schools across the nation based on public data as well as resident reviews.Wednesday night’s shooting is the latest on the growing list of mass shootings in the United States this year. So far, there have been at least six mass shootings in 2018, resulting in 59 deaths.This is a breaking story. Please check back for updates.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
