Cineworld shares or this FTSE 250 pub stock: which is my best bargain buy?

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. Paul Summers has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The decision to allow cinemas and pubs to reopen this coming weekend has proved very popular. Seen purely from an investment perspective, does this now make FTSE 250 stocks like Cineworld (LSE: CINE) and pubs operator JD Wetherspoon (LSE: JDW) bargain buys? And, if so, which is the best?Here’s my take.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…Cineworld: a trader’s delight?Cineworld neatly sums up just how tricky investing in the leisure sector is at the moment. Priced just above 21p back in March, the shares went as high as 99p earlier this month. At Friday’s close, however, Cineworld shares could be yours for 64p. This is what happens when the only thing moving stocks is sentiment rather than earnings.The most recent pullback makes sense when you consider the guidelines Cineworld must comply with when it reopens its doors. These include offering hand sanitiser on entry, floor markings and protective screens for staff.Within screenings, staff will likely be asked to enforce social distancing rules and ensure people stay in their allocated seats. Factor-in fewer film showings and the costs of extra cleaning and you can see why a few in the market have decided to bank profits. Now, it could be that some people would love the opportunity to see a film with no one around them. Some may also be sick of streaming movies at home and just want the big-screen experience, in spite of the dearth of new releases.Personally, I just can’t see people sprinting back to their multiplex for a less-than-optimal viewing. As such, this still doesn’t feel like a good investment, even though people will surely continue making good money from trading Cineworld’s shares.Does this make JD Wetherspoon a better buy by default? Possibly, but there are quite a few caveats. Too big to fail?As the UK’s biggest pub operator, the FTSE 250 stock will surely reap the benefits if things go well.Its pubs have an average size of 4,000 sq ft of customer space, making social distancing less problematic than for some. Roughly 75% also have beer gardens or roof terraces. In addition to this, the company has introduced new queueing systems, disposable menus and screens to protect customers and staff. People will also be encouraged to order and pay via its app rather than at the bar.Compare all this to smaller operators who don’t have the ability to invest a reported £11m in setting up their sites and JD seems like the least risky pick of the listed bunch. The shares are, after all, still almost 40% below where they were at the start of 2020.On the other hand, JD Wetherspoon could suffer more than others if things go badly. An awful lot of sites are located in bustling cities. Logic would suggest these are at greater risk of a second wave and localised lockdown.Regardless, the fact that ‘outspoken’ Chairman Tim Martin initially refused to close any pubs in spite of government advice may have cost the company a few previously-loyal customers along the way. Best bargainAll told, I think JD Wetherspoon just about wins this battle of battered stocks and would be my pick if I had to choose between it and Cineworld.What I am more sure about is that anyone considering adding either stock to their portfolios should check that they are suitably and sufficiently diversified elsewhere first.

2,074 determined to be homeless in Central Florida

June 18, 2017 at 12:04 pm This data conflicts with a billboard I saw on 436 heading east out of town in Apopka. This billboard that is right before Long John Silvers on the same side, heading east out of Apopka, right at the Hispanic produce store. The billboard states: Community Alert…..there are 25, 000 homeless children in Central Florida. I saw this billboard as we were heading to Altamonte. It is a digital billboard that changes to different billboards, so it is hard to catch as you drive by. I am sure that is what it said, 25,000 homeless children. I discussed the message with my husband, and asked him does that sound right? He said maybe 25, 000 homeless people altogether, but 25,000 homeless children sounded high to him. If you drive by, look and see what number that is. I am pretty sure that is what it states. I drove by there again, but the sign had changed to another billboard. Let me know, if that is what it says. This article’s numbers conflicts with that data on the billboard. I don’t think anyone knows for sure just how many homeless that are here in Central Florida, to be honest.

In the Orlando Sentinel, about the pastor’s home burglary, it stated, Bankston. Today in the Orlando Sentinel, about the John Land statues, it stated Bankson. So which is correct? Honestly, I think I have been guilty of spelling his last name both ways. So I apologize Commissioner B…….I have also been guilty of slaying the police chief’s last name and spelling it wrongly too. And pronouncing Commissioner Velazquez’s last name wrongly for awhile, but I think I got it right now, and I can’t ever pronounce the fire chief’s last name correctly…..I apologize sincerely.

Volunteers and organizations that participated expanded their reach to make this possible to capture the number of persons living on the streets, in the woods, in shelter and other locations in which individuals who are homeless seek refuge. While the Point-in-Time Count is an effective tool in terms of gauge, it is one of many that help community leaders monitor the progress in efforts to combat homelessness, as well as determine the need for appropriate resources. While the Point-in-Time Count is an effective tool in terms of gauge, it is one of many that help community leaders monitor the progress in efforts to combat homelessness, as well as determine the need for appropriate resources.One of the most compelling statistics from the 2017 Point-in-Time Count shows that while 555 chronically homeless people were housed in 2016, only 146 chronically homeless people entered our homeless system for the first time– which gives the region a trajectory towards success.With the help of provider partners, a coordinated entry system, now assesses homeless individuals and families to discern those who are the most vulnerable (particularly due to mental illness or physical disabilities), and assists these neighbors into permanent housing. The region has placed almost 200 chronically homeless individuals and 120 families into permanent housing so far in 2017. These examples of the region’s performance are part of the reason Central Florida scored highest in the state in the most recent application for HUD funding.Martha Are, Executive Director of Homeless Services Network, said “Central Florida has been doing incredible work in changing the homeless services system in ways that other communities want to, but have not been able to. The community has invested in every aspect of the system, from identifying homeless people to placement into housing, and we’re seeing significant changes and improvements. This is an exciting path and Central Florida should be proud.” Pastor Joel Hunter, chair of the Board of Directors of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness said, “I am proud of our community’s work to house our most vulnerable neighbors and I am encouraged by the system we are building through the efforts of the Homeless Services Network and the Commission. The number of volunteers who came out for this year’s Point-in-Time Count shows our community’s passion for ending homelessness, and their support – as well as the data they helped to collect — will keep our focus where it should be: on helping to transform individual lives through housing.”In 2015, the region engaged in a significant cross-jurisdictional effort to develop a better system for locating and connecting with vulnerable individuals who sleep outside or in other places not intended to be a home. Leaders in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, and the cities of Orlando, Kissimmee and Sanford committed to increase the number of outreach workers employed through government or not-for-profit providers, and to increase the regional use of the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), which is used to record homeless status and track program outcomes.  This commitment has generated exciting results in efforts to identify all people experiencing homelessness. Since the beginning of 2016, the number of agency staff entering information into HMIS has increased by roughly one third, resulting in a more thorough and coordinated identification of homeless individuals and families being served across the region.​​​​​“Our community has made tremendous strides in understanding the issues faced by those experiencing homelessness,” said Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs.  “These efforts bring another level of understanding, and this year in particular, boosts our awareness of the current need in Central Florida. As we examine these new numbers, it is critical that we continue to seek innovative permanent supportive and affordable housing solutions for our families, as well as rapid rehousing options.”last_img read more

The Interlace is located on an elevated eight-hectare site, bounded by Alexandra Road and the Ayer Rajah Expressway, amidst the verdant Southern Ridges of Singapore. With about 170,000m2 of gross floor area, the development will provide 1,040 apartment units of varying sizes with extensive outdoor spaces and landscaping.

Thirty-one apartment blocks, each six-stories tall and identical in length, are stacked in a hexagonal arrangement to form eight large-scale open and permeable courtyards. The interlocking blocks form a vertical village with cascading sky gardens and both private and public roof terraces.Save this picture!© Iwan BaanThe design capitalizes on the generous size of the site and further maximizes the presence of nature by introducing extensive roof gardens, landscaped sky terraces and cascading balconies. Above- ground vehicular circulation is minimized, liberating large green areas within the development. The Interlace incorporates sustainability features through careful environmental analysis of sun, wind, and micro-climate conditions on site and the integration of low-impact passive energy strategies.Save this picture!Green Area DiagramWhile maintaining the privacy of individual apartment units through the generous spacing of the building blocks and far-ranging views, the design also features communal spaces for shared activity.

Haitians strike on Vertières anniversary

first_imgPhoto: Courtesy of Haiti LiberteIt’s an uprising. Some 80 percent of Haitians went on strike for days after massive protests throughout the country on Nov. 18. That date marked the anniversary of the Battle of Vertières, which sealed the victory of the Haitian revolution in 1803. Major protests, marches and disruptions continued through Nov. 24.President Jovenel Moïse was scheduled to lay a traditional wreath at the memorial to the heroes of Vertières near Cap-Haïtien, but the boiling anger of the people led him to deposit the wreath at the Musée du Panthéon National Haitien, 100 yards from the presidential palace, while a five-minute, 50-second prerecorded speech was played on national television.The tens of thousands of people who came out in Port-au-Prince Nov. 18, as well as in most of Haiti’s major cities, including Jacmel, Les Cayes, Cap-Haïtien, Gonaïves, Saint-Marc and Léogâne, were demanding to know “Kot Kòb Petwo Karibe a” — “Where is the PetroCaribe money?” The slogan refers to the billions of dollars Haiti got through a special deal with Venezuela, which let the Haitian government use its profits from discounted oil to finance development. This vast sum, for the least developed country in the Western Hemisphere, could have brought people ravaged by earthquakes and hurricanes the development they need, but this money appears to have “evaporated” into the pockets of some politicians and their spouses.But there were other pressing reasons to hit the streets: Two out of three Haitians live on less than $2 a day; less than 50 percent have access to potable water and less than 25 percent have access to sanitation. Although the unions have been demanding a much bigger raise, the government recently doubled the minimum wage to $5.11 for an 8-hour day. In a brutal massacre in the Port-au-Prince neighborhood of La Saline on Nov. 13, a pro-government militia killed at least 15 people and dumped their bodies in garbage pits, according to a report by the newly founded Open Eyes Foundation.Pressure on Haitian government to resignThe protests on Nov. 18 started out in good spirits, with marchers chanting and dancing to bands marching along with them. When the marchers confronted the police, however, the tone changed. Videos show cops prowling the streets, rifle or gun in hand, throwing tear gas grenades. Protesters built barricades of tires and other trash, which they set on fire from time to time. The Haitian National Police claimed that three people were shot dead. A major opposition group, the Democratic and Popular Sector, an alliance between outspoken lawyer André Michel and the Lavalas Family party, claimed that 11 people had died, 47 had been wounded and 75 arrested. The Haitian Press Network reported Nov. 18 that six people were killed in protests in Petit-Goâve, Jacmel and Cap-Haïtien. The U.N. Police Force, which is supposed to be “advising” the various Haitians police forces, had U.N. patrol cars surveying the action.While the protests began over the PetroCaribe corruption, the attacks on President Jovenel Moïse and his Haitian Bald Head Party (PHTK) grew sharper and more intense as the week progressed. Calls for his resignation or dismissal became much more frequent.There were reports that residents of different neighborhoods in Port-au-Prince also set up barricades to keep the cops out.Tensions have been rising in Haiti for decades, but have sharpened in particular since the disastrous earthquake of 2010. Both the Nov. 20 Washington Post and the Nov. 23 New York Times reported on this uprising in Haiti as if it were not connected to Haiti’s extreme poverty, reinforced by the U.N. occupation acting as a proxy for the U.S., nor to the U.S. picking the last two Haitian presidents.The Haitian government is currently under tremendous popular pressure to resign. However, the U.S. embassy in Haiti issued the following statement: “The United States supports the human rights of people everywhere to freely express themselves and peacefully protest, and supports the Haitian government as it safeguards both those rights, and the security of public and private property.” This has to be seen as interference in another country’s internal affairs.Haiti has every right to make its own decisions without any U.S. intervention.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This year, PSHA awarded 67 gifts and grants totaling $630,000 to non-profit organizations, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, for music education, school music programs, instruments, music therapy, and underwriting of concerts.“While it is a huge responsibility for the members of PSHA’s Gifts & Grants Committee to decide to which organizations to award funds, it is very rewarding to know that these organizations are doing their part to promote music and the arts, especially with regard to children and young adults, and particularly to those in under-served areas of our local communities,” said Gifts & Grants Chair Eileen Reilly.About 180 guests were in attendance at this year’s reception. They were treated to classical music performed by an ensemble from USC Thornton School of Music’s Cardinal Winds made up of Catherine Baker (flute); Zach Pulse (oboe); and Alex Garcia (bassoon).Reilly, with the help of member Mary Ann Clayton, the Benefit Chair for the 2014 Pasadena Showcase House of Design, the proceeds of which funded this year’s Gifts & Grants program, presented each recipient with a certificate and a check for their project. A representative from each organization spoke about how the funds would be used while President Katherine Watkins congratulated the recipients for bringing music directly to the community.“It is an absolute privilege for us to play a small part in the work that these incredible organizations do in the community. And, it is profoundly motivating,” said Watkins. “Tomorrow, we will go back to work with their stories in mind, more determined than ever to be successful so that we can make even larger contributions in the future.” Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more
