US home prices jump in June

first_img Tags: NULL US home prices jump in June Tuesday 31 August 2010 8:51 pm Prices of US single-family homes gained more than expected in June and rose in the second quarter, reflecting the lingering boost from homebuyer tax credits that ended in April, Standard & Poor’s/Case Shiller home price indexes showed yesterday.The effects of buyer tax credits have largely filtered through and home prices will be hard-pressed to sustain these gains with unemployment still near 10 per cent, economists agree.The S&P/Case Shiller composite index of 20 metropolitan areas rose 0.3 per cent in June from May on a seasonally adjusted basis. The rise was better than the 0.2 per cent increase expected by economists polled by Reuters, though slower than the 0.5 per cent rise in May.Unadjusted, the 20-city index gained one per cent following May’s 1.3 per cent jump. In the year, prices rose 4.2 per cent, surpassing the Reuters forecast of 3.9 per cent. S&P, which publishes the indexes, also said home prices nationally rose 4.4 per cent in the second quarter after a 2.8 per cent drop in the first quarter.Prices rose in 17 of the 20 metro areas in June, S&P said, adding that in the first half of the year 15 of the 20 areas had positive annual growth rates. The housing market is in better shape than a year ago, S&P said.Most cities posted smaller price gains in June, though, and the annual growth rates slowed in 14 of the metro areas.“The worry starts when you remember that the Homebuyers’ Tax Credit has expired, foreclosures are still at high levels, and July data on home sales and starts were very, very weak,” David M Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at S&P, said in a statement. whatsapp Share whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

UK shares to buy: I’d invest £3k in these stocks

first_img I think some of the best UK shares to buy today are homebuilders. I’m not just saying that. I plan to put my money where my mouth is and invest £3,000 in a basket of companies that operate in the sector. UK shares to buyThe UK is currently experiencing a housing market boom. Property values increased by more than 10% last year. Meanwhile, the total value of homes sold in the UK is expected to reach £461bn in 2021, a jump of 46% over 2020. 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…Several factors are driving the growth. Low interest rates have made homes more affordable, and higher loan-to-value mortgages have also helped borrowers gain access to financing.On top of this, the UK housing market has been structurally undersupplied for years. And then there’s the race for space. Homebuyers are racing to buy large properties in the country as the pandemic has changed work and living patterns. With all of these tailwinds working together, it seems likely the UK housing market will continue to experience growth in the years ahead. As such, I reckon some of the best UK shares to buy are builders Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW), Persimmon (LSE: PSN) and Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV). I would buy all three with an investment of £3,000. Growth potential Taylor is already on track to build more properties this year than in 2020. In its latest trading update, the company reported that its total order book was £2.8bn as of the middle of April, compared to just under £2.7bn last year. It has also increased its short-term and strategic land banks by around 10,000 plots. Barratt also appears to be firing on all cylinders. According to its latest trading update, it has achieved 13,558 home completions in its current financial year.In 2019 for the same period, the company completed 11,861 properties. The organisation has also been increasing the size of its landbank, buying up more than 12,000 plots over the past financial year.Persimmon’s growth is just as impressive. The company’s current forward sales are 23% ahead of last year and 11% the head of the same point in 2019. In addition, the average selling price for homes sold to owner-occupiers is £252,000, compared to £244,500 in 2019. Like its peers, Persimmon has also been deploying profits back into its land bank. A total of 6,000 plots have been brought into the business in 29 locations across the UK so far this year. All three companies have reported that there is a promising pipeline of land investment opportunities.UK shares to buyOverall, all three of these companies are seeing high demand, rising prices and plenty of scope for growth. That said, they are facing some headwinds as well. Rising costs and commodity and worker shortages are all causing headaches. At the same time, the three are having to spend tens of millions of pounds to rectify defects on some of their already sold buildings. These challenges could impact growth. A sudden increase in interest rates may also reduce demand. Still, despite these risks and challenges, I continue to believe these are some of the best UK shares to buy right now. And I would buy all of them for my portfolio with an investment of £3k.  Enter Your Email Address The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Glasgow scrum-half Chris CusiterGlasgow Warriors scrum-half Chris Cusiter will start this Saturday’s Magners League clash against Benetton Treviso at the Stadio Monigo.Although Cusiter’s return to the squad was announced earlier this week, it was confirmed today that he will be on the field from the outset – a prospect that has the players, supporters and coaching staff brimming with excitement, none moreso than head coach Sean Lineen. “Having Chris back is massive not only for us, but for him,” said Lineen.“It’s been a hard 11 months for Chris but he’s always kept his head high and we’ve always supported him. He’s a world class player and has been buzzing around the field all week. The whole squad has been buoyed by his return. The medical staff have been excellent and shown real patience as he has. It’s all about getting him on the field now and giving him every opportunity of being involved at the World Cup.”Cusiter is among four personnel changes from the team that beat Aironi almost a fortnight ago, with one further positional switch. In addition to the British  Irish Lion’s inclusion in the backs, Hefin O’Hare replaces Alex Dunbar on the right wing and DTH van der Merwe moves over to the left as a result.The pack sees hooker Dougie Hall promoted from a bench appearance last time out to a starting berth this week as he continues his recovery from a shoulder injury. Following an improved performance against Aironi, Johnnie Beattie is re-instated to the back-row in place of Ryan Wilson.Ahead of the squad’s maiden trip to the Stadio Monigo, Lineen continued: “Treviso have been around for a few years and are well-versed in the Heineken Cup. They are also very difficult at home. “It’s important that we give good performances in these last three games. The players know what it’s all about – we need to finish on a winning note.” Unavailable for selection: John Barclay (rest), Rob Dewey (knee), James Eddie (illness), Max Evans (elbow), James Fleming (knee), Calum Forrester (knee), Richie Gray (rest), Ed Kalman (back), Alastair Kellock (rest), Murray McConnell (back), Colin Shaw (knee).BE THE EXTRA MAN NEXT SEASONGlasgow Warriors’ adult, student and concession season ticket prices have been frozen once again and under-18s can enjoy all the thrills of the Magners League and Heineken Cup from just £35. Those who sign up to any of the club’s over-18 season ticket options will be entered into an exclusive prize draw to win an all expenses paid trip to travel with the squad, with a friend, to the Warriors’ premier European fixture next season. Season tickets go on sale this Friday so keep an eye on the club’s website – www.glasgowwarriors.org – for more details. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

A year after Hurricane Harvey, some Texans are using outdated flood…

Hurricane Season 2018By Wanyun Shao, Assistant Professor of Geography, University of Alabama and first published on theconversation.com.One year ago, on August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey struck Texas – the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005. Harvey dumped record-breaking rain and flooded hundreds of thousands of homes in and around Houston. It caused some US$125 billion in damages, making it one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history.But human choices played a role. Before Harvey, Houston was widely known as a model of unchecked urban development. With no formal zoning or comprehensive plan, developers were allowed to turn virtually any land, including wetlands, into houses and shopping malls. The National Flood Insurance Program, administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), unintentionally encouraged intense development by offering coverage in flood-prone areas at below-cost rates.Harvey’s impacts in Houston provide an ideal case study for unsustainable human-environment interaction. After last year’s flooding, it would be logical to expect affected communities to rethink long-term hazard management and risk reduction.In fact, I see the opposite happening. In just one example, officials in the city of Friendswood (part of greater Houston) are allowing some residents to rebuild their homes based on outdated flood risk maps that greatly underestimate the risk of future floods. This avoids requirements such as elevating houses and buying flood insurance. I believe choosing to rely on faulty information, driven by short-term financial concerns, will increase long-term risks for many Houstonians.The message of FEMA flood mapsMuch discussion about the troubled National Flood Insurance Program has centered on its artificially low premiums. FEMA’s flood risk maps receive less attention, but are a powerful risk communication tool.FEMA produces these maps for more than 20,000 communities that participate in the insurance program. They determine insurance rates, inform local regulations and communicate risks to communitiesOn the maps, Special Flood Hazard Areas identify zones with a one percent chance of flooding in any given year. Since this translates to 100 percent odds of flooding at least once in a century, these areas often are referred to as 100-year flood zones (creating the misleading impression that they will only flood once a century). Homeowners there must buy flood insurance in order to qualify for federally regulated or guaranteed loans.Flood risk map for Multnomah County, Oregon, based on FEMA hazard assessment. Oregon DCLDUsing surveys and geographic data, I have shown that flood maps significantly affect voluntary decisions to purchase flood insurance. Working with other social scientists and engineers, I found that people who live in communities with a large percentage of 100-year flood zones are more likely to buy flood insurance, even when they are not required to do so.How do these maps convey risk? Using websites such as Floodsmart.gov, users can view the flood maps and see threats to their properties and surrounding areas. FEMA also works with local governments to educate residents about flood risks. A civil engineer who worked for the city of Huntsville, Alabama told me that he used the maps to point out relative risks to homeowners:“I’ll say, ‘Do you have flood insurance? You don’t have to – your house isn’t in [a 100-year flood zone] – but you do have one-percent annual chance floodplain on the back of your property. It’s close to where you are, so you have more risk of flooding than somebody further away.’”When homeowners elevate or flood-proof their homes or purchase flood insurance, they may also influence neighbors to take similar steps.Some Houstonians who are not required to elevate their homes are choosing to do so.Undercutting FEMA’s messageFEMA’s maps can be a double-edged sword. If they are inaccurate, they may mislead users.And the maps have widely-recognized flaws. They do a poor job of accounting for changing conditions. For instance, FEMA often assigns low flood risk to locations that are near coasts but slightly elevated, due to insufficient wave modeling to account for storm surge risk. This can give residents in those zones a false sense of security. And the maps do not analyze how risks vary within flood zones, or between coastal and inland locations..FEMA is required to assess whether the maps need updating maps every five years. But a recent Congressional Budget Office report found that two-thirds of counties with high flood-related claims had maps that were more than five years old. The update process is time-consuming, with a lengthy statutory consultation and appeals process.Even if communities have more recent data, FEMA will not publish a partial update. This explains why Friendswood – which has an updated flood map for some land within its limits, created after Tropical Storm Allison in 2007 – can revert to a 20-year-old FEMA map to guide post-Harvey rebuilding.Downplaying risksFriendswood is just one example of Houston officials downplaying flood risks. FEMA maps are developed and updated in partnership with communities; in recent years the agency has allowed Houston developers to revise local flood maps through steps such as dumping tons of fill to raise neighborhoods above the flood plain – sometimes just by inches.Today, a developer in Friendswood is planning to build a shopping center in the Clear Creek floodway – the zone around the creek where most of the water flows – on top of trucked-in dirt. In the past decade, some 1,400 structures have been permitted in and around Houston in floodways.A pro-building, pro-expansion mentality still permeates the city. Despite opposition from some residents and local media, Houston’s City Council unanimously approved a plan in April 2018 to build 900 homes in a west Houston flood plain.A floodway is land along a creek, stream or river that conveys most of the water, so flow is deepest, fastest and most dangerous. Boulder County, ColoradoHouston is taking some steps to reduce flood risks, such as buying out houses that have routinely flooded and requiring other owners to elevate their homes. Nonetheless, these pro-development examples are troubling.According to one recent study, the extreme amounts of rain that fell on Houston during Harvey resulted from unprecedented ocean heat content. In other words, it was exacerbated by human-induced climate change. In a climate where temperatures are projected to increase in the future, hurricane-induced coastal flooding will be more frequent and intense.My recent research shows that even with their flaws, FEMA flood maps influence decisions to purchase flood insurance and overall support for flood mitigation. Policy makers need to seriously consider how to accurately communicate increasing flood risks to the public. Reverting to old flood maps and granting variances to promote development is a recipe for more disasters down the road.

It’s gloves off as ‘Ice Hockey stuff’ fight takes place in rugby league final

first_imgWednesday Nov 25, 2020 It’s gloves off as ‘Ice Hockey stuff’ fight takes place in rugby league final Two players squared off after a dangerous tackle sparked rivalries in a National Indigenous Rugby League Championship final match in Sydney on Saturday. Fights like this are a fairly rare occurrence in any form of rugby these days, so fans and the commentary team watched on fairly stunned. ADVERTISEMENTTensions flared when Newcastle Hawks winger Callan Briggs was recklessly shoulder-charged by former NRL player Tyronne Roberts-Davis, playing for Walgett.Briggs’ family member, Randall Briggs, took exception to it and made that clear in no uncertain terms. But once this seemingly settled down, thanks to referee Gavin Badger, the two squared off again at the very next phase of play, this time trading blows as teammates stood back and watched.WATCH: League ref takes a tumble, twice“Gee they’re stepping back and watching, this is like out on the road,” a commentator said as the other players backed off and let the two do their thing.“This is ice hockey stuff. We haven’t seen this for a very long time in rugby league. This is unprofessional … to start swinging like this, this is no good. Back in the ‘80s? Yeah. But not now. This is stupid by both of these players.”The pair eventually shook hands, Randall Briggs left the field with a large gash in his forehead and Newcastle went on to win the game comfortably 26-0.“It’s just the passion and the desire and the intensity that you see out there in knockout footy. That’s all it was,” said the Hawks skipper post-match.“Both boys stood up and I think they shook hands afterwards and we’re going to leave it at that pretty much.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
