Moonpig share price: 4 things I’d consider before buying

Moonpig share price: 4 things I’d consider before buying There’s a lot of hype around the Moonpig (LSE: MOON) share price. The company is one of the latest to list on the stock market through an initial public offering (IPO) in 2021.With all this buzz, should I buy the shares in my portfolio straight after an IPO? Here are four things I reckon investors like me should consider about the Moonpig share price before buying.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 – An overview of the IPOI think I should start with details about the IPO first. The stock went public last week after spending several years as a private company. The Moonpig share price at IPO was 350p, which valued the company at £1.2bn.Why did Moonpig decide to go public now? During the pandemic, the company saw huge demand for its services. The private investors saw this as a golden opportunity to cash in on their stakes and the IPO was part of their exit strategy.#2 – Investing at IPOIn my portfolio, I typically don’t buy shares at or straight after an IPO. The reason being is that as a private company, there has been a lack of transparency. Other than the lengthy IPO prospectus, which doesn’t give me much on its past financials, I don’t have much information to go on.As a public company, I’m glad that there will be regular trading updates. This means that there will be more information to base my research on when analysing the Moonpig share price.One of the risks with buying at or straight after the IPO is that there could be share price volatility. Until the company reports next, I’d expect some ups and downs in the Moonpig share price until investors can assess the financial position of the company as a public entity. For these reasons, I’d rather monitor the shares for now before buying.#3 – Moonpig’s businessLet’s consider Moonpig’s business in detail. The company is an online greeting card and gifts retailer. Unlike some of its competitors, it doesn’t have any physical store presence. And online cards and gift orders have increased since Covid-19 struck.What strikes me about Moonpig is that it’s trying to pitch itself as a tech company. It argues that its proprietary tech platform and apps use data science to personalise customer experience. That might be true, but I still see Moonpig as a card and gifts retailer that happens to use tech to sell only online.The company operates under Moonpig in the UK and the Greetz brand in the Netherlands. I like that it’s a clear online leader in both markets, which should be positive for the Moonpig share price. According to its IPO prospectus, Moonpig holds a 60% and 65% market share among online card specialists in the UK and Netherlands respectively . #4 – Competition could impact the Moonpig share priceWhile revenue may be increasing, the competition is fierce and is increasing. This could have a negative impact on the Moonpig share price. The company has stated that competitors are now transitioning online away from the traditional bricks and mortar stores. Sending gifts and cards are ingrained in society. Only time will tell if Moonpig’s tech platform and apps will lure customers in. For now, I will continue to monitor the Moonpig share price until it has released further trading information as a public company.

A happy anniversary for Leicester Tigers as they toast 125 years at Welford Road

first_imgLeicester open the defence of the Anglo-Welsh Cup on Saturday. Rugby World looks at some of the facts, stats and characters associated with the home of this grand old club FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERE TAGS: Leicester Tigers Tom Varndell’s late score to beat Stade Français in a European quarter-final, the historic and gutsy victory over the Springboks, and the emotional day when Matt Hampson was reintroduced to the crowd after his life-changing accident – just three of the more recent memories from 125 years of Leicester Tigers rugby at Welford Road.Leicester will be back out there again this weekend when they start their defence of the Anglo-Welsh Cup, which they secured last year with a 16-12 defeat of Exeter Chiefs.Gloucester – who will host this season’s final on 18 March – are the visitors for the first-round pool match as the Tigers begin their quest for a ninth Cup title in its various guises, with either John Player, Pilkington or EDF Energy having sponsored the trophy during the club’s previous triumphs.Bath, with ten titles from 1984-96, have set the benchmark but the Midlanders are hot on their tail. Before this season’s campaign gets underway, we reflect on some of the players and events of the past 125 years at Welford Road. Thanks to Leicester Tigers for providing most of the photos you see below, and to the official Tigers history book written by Stuart Farmer and David Hands, which provides a wealth of information.Farewell: Martin Johnson and Neil Back thank the supporters after their final home game in 2005MARTIN JOHNSON and Neil Back are two of the Leicester greats, playing 267 Premiership matches between them for Tigers and winning a shedload of trophies to go with their World Cup winners’ medals from 2003.Second-row Johnson holds the record for the most successive victories in a Tigers shirt, recording 31 between October 2000 and January 2002. He captained the club during their glory years around the turn of the century, including the back-to-back Heineken Cup wins, and only two men have led their side more often in Premiership rugby – Lawrence Dallaglio and Steve Borthwick. Johnson’s win rate as captain across his 132 league games was 76%.Back’s impact was barely less perceptible, the flanker scoring a club record 125 tries in 339 appearances. In his book The Death of Rugby, Back recalls how Ladbrokes set up a shop at Welford Road and offered odds of about 20-1 on him scoring the first try.That price soon plummeted to 6-1 as Back routinely finished off the Tigers’ formidable driving mauls, but he writes: “The odds on Garf (Darren Garforth) were something like 50-1. I know you weren’t allowed to bet on yourselves, and I never did, but we could really have made some money if I’d just slipped the ball to Garf instead!”Even so, Back’s scoring feats led to Ladbrokes losing a lot of money and they pulled out halfway through that season.The two men signed off at Welford Road in the same match, a 45-10 Premiership win against Wasps in 2005. They received a standing ovation and head coach John Wells said: “If you could write scripts you would have written that one.”Bricks and mortar: A drawing of the old clubhouse at the Aylestone Road end, erected in 1909WELFORD ROAD was just outside the town boundary when the Tigers signed a lease in 1892 to play on an acre of land there. The new ground, which was called Aylestone Road for the first few weeks, opened on 10 September 1892 with a match against the Leicestershire Rugby Union. Leicester won 17-0.The Leicester Guardian reported: “It is rather an unkind sneer on the part of non footballers to say that the new ground is in the right place, handy both for the infirmary and the cemetery!”The YMCA and the Press & Panto Company were among those to hire the ground and straw was purchased at 37 shillings a ton to protect the pitch from winter frost. The club committee considered floodlighting but decided against buying 12 naphtha lamps on account of cost.Try machine: Tigers wing Rory Underwood on his way to the line against Bath in 1995 (Getty Images)ENGLAND didn’t always play expansive rugby during the dozen years that Rory Underwood represented his country. So the fact he scored 49 Test tries – streets ahead of his nearest Red Rose challengers, Will Greenwood and Ben Cohen – tells you everything you need to know about the powerful Leicester wing who made a habit of brushing off tacklers.Underwood scored 134 tries for Leicester in his 236 appearances (1983-97) and today the former RAF pilot is a non-executive director on the Tigers board.“If you get the chance to go in the changing rooms before a game, the shirts are not laid out one to 15,” he says. “When we moved across from the clubhouse end to the new changing rooms on the terrace, you have players that have superstitions. For example, Stuart Redfern would sit by the door, I was in between Barry Evans and Dusty Hare – and since then it has stayed and is now a club tradition.”Redevelopment: Leicester and Saracens do battle in front of the emerging new North Stand in 2009WELFORD ROAD has been modernised regularly throughout its history and its current capacity of 25,849 makes it the largest purpose-built rugby ground in the UK.The 10,000-seat Holland & Barrett Stand (at the North end) was built in 2009 and is the country’s second-largest single-tier stand after Liverpool FC’s Kop. Featuring extra bars, hospitality and a new reception area, the £14m structure replaced the Members Stand that had stood for nearly a century.Spot the ball: No 8 Dean Richards, a legend in the making, scores for Tigers back in the 1980sDEAN RICHARDS made his Leicester debut in 1982, captained the club for four seasons in the early Nineties and as director of rugby steered Tigers to four consecutive league titles and two European Cups in the early years of professionalism. He clocked up 314 first-team appearances.Between 1998 and 2002, Leicester went a staggering 57 home Premiership games without defeat and Richards, the successor to Bob Dwyer, was the man in charge for all but the first two games of that sequence.The late Frank Keating quoted Les Cusworth in a piece about Richards in 2001. “We blooded Dean down at Neath, a hell of a baptism on one of those filthy wet nights South Wales always greeted us with,” said the ex-Tigers fly-half. After Clive Woodward became the England coach, there was plenty of speculation about who he would appoint as captain. Healey approached him one day flourishing a newspaper. Lawrence Dallaglio and Martin Johnson were listed at odds of 2-1 to get the job.“And look at me here,” said Healey, who was bottom of the list at 350-1. “I can scrape together £20,000. If you can match it, well, that’s £7,000,000 each! Just name me captain and we’re out of here!”Man of the Match in both of Leicester’s European Cup victories, Healey is also part of a distinguished band of Tigers to have won the League/Premiership Player of the Season award. The list is Martin Johnson (1996-97, 1998-99), Neil Back (1997-98), Austin Healey (1999-2000), Pat Howard (2000-01), Martin Corry (2004-05), Martin Castrogiovanni (2006-07) and Tom Youngs (2012-13).The way it was: Welford Road in 1959, a time when Irish great Tony O’Reilly played for the clubWHEN rugby resumed after World War One, Leicester embarked on an unprecedented run of 30 home games – all 19 matches in 1918-19 and the first nine games of the following season. Most of these were against service sides.In the 1930s the stadium staged major boxing matches, including the British Empire heavyweight bouts won by Larry Gains and Jack Petersen, and the ‘sport of kings’ returned to Welford Road on two occasions in 2010.In the summers of 1958 and 1959 the Harlem Globetrotters showed off their basketball skills at the ground. Ex-Tigers centre Mike Harrison, who made 210 appearances from 1962-71, says of that era: “My childhood memories of Welford Road are of coming here with my dad and brother and standing behind the posts on what was then a cinder bank. I enjoyed watching the game from the ends as you can see the patterns of play much better than the sides.”Tennis has also featured at Welford Road. Pat Cash and Ilie Nastase played a doubles match against Peter Fleming and Andrew Castle in June 2006, when a court was cut into the pitch.Cop this: the Royal Leicestershire Regiment deliver the match ball for a 2005 game. Nice Tiger print!WING Jonah Holmes, a summer signing from Yorkshire Carnegie, and Tonga full-back Atieli Pakalani will make their Leicester debut in Saturday’s Anglo-Welsh Cup tie with Gloucester (3pm).Tigers also field academy graduates Harry Simmons (scrum-half) and Sam Lewis (flanker) for the first time, in a team captained by fly-half Joe Ford. On-loan Dan Tuohy is at lock alongside Harry Wells, who was an ever-present in the successful cup run last season.“The league has been quite attritional this season, so this is a nice chance to blood some young players,” said Geordan Murphy, who takes charge of the team. “It also gives those who haven’t had much field time a chance to play and they’re all excited to be involved. “It’s a big game, it’s at home, it’s Gloucester, who have been in decent form and have already won away from home in the league and in Europe this season. So it’s for us to put on a performance to represent the Leicester shirt with pride and passion.”Holders: Leicester celebrate winning the Anglo-Welsh Cup at the Stoop last season (Getty Images) Full house: Welford Road on a match day is one of the great sights in rugby LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Those hard Neath boys were full of vile and evil intentions, especially when they realised our pack had chosen a first-up young English greenhorn. They got up to all sorts – but Dean just grinned that big daft grin of his, took everything they threw at him and never batted an eyelid. Suddenly the whole game revolved around him and we won 10-8. Incredible.”Take Courage: another title for Deano, now being discussed as a potential successor to Eddie JonesA giant in the tight exchanges, Richards didn’t wear the number ‘eight’ on his club shirt because of tradition. Instead, he wore the letter ‘G’, a convention that went back to the 1926-27 season when Leicester forwards first wore letters to aid identification. The lettering was extended to the whole team in 1931 and when everyone else switched to numbers, Tigers stood firm, sticking to their letters system right up to the late 1990s when tournament rules forced their hand.The Tigers first wore numbers on their backs at the start of the 1998-99 season, against Harlequins, and two years later we saw players’ names added as TV requested a further change to assist in identifying players on screen.Coldplay: ground staff clear snow off the pitch in December 2000. Behind them is the old west standONLY ONCE has adverse weather forced a postponement of a Premiership match at Welford Road – in December 2000 when frost prevented the match against Sale from going ahead. Prior to that, home league games against Orrell in 1991 (snow) and Sale in 1995 (frost) also fell foul of the cold, but overall the ground has proved remarkably resilient.In January 2010, ground staff and volunteers cleared 35 tons of snow from the pitch and terraces, enabling Tigers to beat Wasps 34-8 in the only game of rugby played in England that weekend.In November 1903, London Welsh were the visitors for a match played in such dense fog that for long passages, spectators could see nothing at all! In contrast, the September 1895 encounter with Gloucester was played in a sweltering 112 degrees.Paws for thought: Austin Healey with the Tigers’ mascot in 2001 – check out the state of the pitchSTEVE KENNEY scored the try that did for Moseley in the 1979 John Player Cup final, sparking a Tigers hat-trick as London Irish and Gosforth succumbed at Twickenham in the ensuing two years. The scrum-half formed a famous half-back partnership with Les Cusworth and by the time he played his last Tigers game in 1990 had amassed 365 appearances.“As an 11-year-old I used to jump on a couple of buses and come down and watch stars like Jonny Allen and Peter Tom. It was always a great way to introduce fans to the sport,” he recalls. “I remember back in ’69, Tigers were playing the Springboks during one of their tours and they used to come out of the tunnel at the clubhouse end. I used to say to myself, ‘I’d love to run out that tunnel one day’.”Austin Healey is another in the line of great Leicester scrum-halves, albeit that the England international proved one of the most versatile talents of the pro era. He is one of only four men to play at least ten Leicester matches at both scrum-half and fly-half, and one of eight to play in four of the five backs positions.last_img read more

A true example of one who lives his faith and preaches the Risen Christ. There is a characteristic about him which distinguishes him from all the other previous PBs and has already been proclaimed louder than his commitment to his Lord. This is sad to me. The same thing happened to Bp Schori. Whether one was in favor of K J S as PB, she did not deserve those buttons bursting out saying “It’a Girl!” At first it was “cute,” but like most jokes or humor, there is the bite of the aftertaste. She was and is a woman….not an “it” and not a newborn “cute little thing.” That statement remains suspended in the air like stale smoke. For the record, I am a WASP of Irish heritage, a Canon and entering my 7th decade. There are several issues upon which I disagree with her and have said so. But she still didn’t deserve the unthinking “humor.” Those buttons demeaned others as well. Indeed, imagine if its male equivalent pops up now?Consider this perspective: Bp Michael isn’t an African-American Bishop; he is a Bishop who is an African-American.

Thank you Lord. [Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] Several hours after being elected as the Episcopal Church’s 27th – and first African-American – presiding bishop-elect, Michael Curry fielded a range of media questions with characteristic humility and humor June 27 and said he intends to build on the good work of his predecessor “because that’s the way the Spirit works.”Current Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori introduced Curry at a crowded press conference at the Hilton Hotel in Salt Lake City, saying the House of Bishops handed him “a major mandate” with the historic landslide victory.Curry jokingly agreed that he thought both bishops and deputies “were happy houses today.”Jefferts Schori and Curry became diocesan bishops the same year and “it’s the first time presiding bishops from the same class have been elected” successively,” she said. It is also the first time that a presiding bishop has been elected on the first ballot.Curry, whose term will begin Nov. 1, was accompanied at the news conference by his wife Sharon, a daughter, Elizabeth, and other family members and friends. Included among his guests was “Josie Robbins who, when I was a young boy and my mother died, … was one of the women in our church community along with my grandmother and others who came in and raised me.”“I believe in the community of church because I’ve been raised by it,” he said.He shared some thoughts about a range of issues:Among his priorities – the Jesus movement“I am looking forward to serving and working for the cause of the Jesus movement in world … to help this become a transformed world that looks more like God’s dream and less like our nightmare. That’s what energizes me and what I believe in and we can really continue and build on the good work that’s been done in Bishop Katharine’s years.”Evangelism vs. evangelical“Everybody knows I really do take evangelism seriously and discipleship and witness and service and social advocacy, the gospel principles that we hold. Those three things are critical and needed in this time. I think The Episcopal Church has something to offer in the public square. We have a way of looking at the Gospel that makes known the love of God in Jesus.”But is he evangelical? “I think it’s fair to say that I am a follower of Jesus.”How will he address societal issues?“Some of this will evolve over time,” Curry told the gathering, adding that there are good public initiatives already going on, with the church’s Office of Governmental Relations and other efforts, to address issues of racism and poverty.Noting the specter of the recent killings of nine people at a Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, he added: “it was the voice of the Christian community that really did change the narrative from one that could have degenerated into a negative and hurtful to one that was a narrative of forgiveness. That’s one of the roles religious communities and in particular the Christian community can offer, is a positive way forward.”Becoming the beloved community:“I believe profoundly that Dr. King was right. We were put here to create the beloved community; God is the same God and creator of all of us. If we all come from the same source, I’m not a scientist … I’m just a preacher, but if we’ve got the same parental source then you’re related to everybody. We are brothers and sisters of each other. The hard work is to figure out how we live as beloved community, as the human family of God and do that in practical and tangible ways.”Involving more Latinos in leadership roles“This will be critical. It’s one of the things we’ve worked on in North Carolina. It has taken time. I’ve been bishop there for 15 years and people from the Latino community are now taking leadership in the life of the diocese. It’s happened over time in communities of faith.”On preaching“I do love to preach. The preaching and teaching of God’s word does make a difference and can lift us up. You know the story in Ezekiel 37? That’s pretty much about preaching. We’re a valley of dry bones; God said preach to them and the bones started to shake, rattle, and roll … that is what preaching does. I hope to continue the preaching ministry as well, as a way of moving the church forward.”Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry makes a point at his first news conference a few hours after his historic election as the 27th presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church. Photo: Janet Kawamoto / For Episcopal News ServiceOn being elected the African-American leader of a largely white denomination“It’ll be interesting to see what terms get used about me. Let’s wait and see.”He said the election of Jefferts Schori as the first woman presiding bishop paved the way for him. “I was there when it happened and I remember just realizing it was an experience of the Holy Spirit for real. And today I had that same feeling,” he said, his voice growing softer.“I think that’s a sign of our church growing more deeply in the spirit of God and the movement of God in our world. It was like the day of Pentecost, when the spirit came down, people living in the spirit of God’s love, of God’s embrace, and we find ourselves growing more in the direction of God’s dream.” On growing churches“The gospel hasn’t changed. Jesus is still the same. We need to learn and discover new ways of carrying out and sharing that good news of Jesus. In this day, in this time, the church can no longer wait for its congregation to come to it. That change of directionality on the part of the church, church-wide, will have impact for reaching people who are not automatically coming to our doors.”What he wants people to know about him?“That Michael Curry is a follower of Jesus. Not a perfect one. I want to be one of his disciples. I believe that the way of Jesus, the way of God’s love that we see in Jesus, is the way of life, life that sets us free, that moves us.“I just want people to know that Michael Curry does strive to follow in the way of Jesus and reflect his love and compassion in his life and in the life of the church.”About reconciliation“If you follow Jesus, you’re good with me … let’s go together. Ultimately, that’s the thing that matters. We deal with each other in love and charity. We’ll find a way forward. We will create space. Better yet, the spirit of God will create space for all of us.”About the Supreme Court’s decision and what General Convention will do about same gender marriage“The Supreme Court affirmed the authenticity of love. We’re in the business of love. There’s a hymn, ‘where true love is found, God himself is there.’ We’re in the process of working that out, what form that will take we’ll know at the end of this convention. The reality is the issues are about marriage. How do we make it fulsome and wholesome for all? How do we make marriage a context where life is ennobled and lifted up? Those are critical pastoral concerns.”About healing the breach with the global south“As a bishop, I am supportive of our current presiding bishop and our leadership and the work we’ve done. I am committed to the work of reconciliation. It is part of our gospel mandate. I have friends in the global south and many of my ancestors are from the global south. I will be an instrument of God’s reconciliation any way I can that will lead to true reconciliation. I’ll do my best.”About living into his new ministry“I am very thankful for the presiding bishop’s long, sustained, courageous, wise and faithful stewardship. Thank God for you,” he told Jefferts Schori. “I am very thankful, honored and blessed. I’ve been blessed to be bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina for 15 years. I love that diocese and our people and I’m blessed to be the presiding bishop-elect.”— The Rev. Pat McCaughan is a correspondent for Episcopal News Service. June 28, 2015 at 12:54 am La Iglesia esta de fiesta agradeciendo a Dios por la eleccion de Michael Curry como Primado. La sociedad de hoy necesita a ese seguidor de Jesus. La iglesia lo reconoce y se ha movido bajo la guia del Espiritu Santo. Que siga soplando en su vida y nuevo ministerio y que la comunidad toda le escuche y se deje guiar para bien, para los nuevos tiempos, para los desafios que estan presentes todos los dias.

Well, wonder no more because I’m here to tell you that God is a “waymaker” and Bishop Michael Curry is God’s emissary here on earth to show us the way. You might remember Bishop Barbara Harris’s consecration and the moment she stepped over the threshold just as the choir was singing “…Ride on King Jesus, ride on,,no man can-a hinder me..” Well, it’s still true because God the Waymaker is still on the throne and He’s already put Bishop Curry to work. and no man will alter or tamper with God’s will.

Members of the Council of Paris revised the urban regulations for the Masséna- Bruneseau sector in Paris’ southeasterly 13th arrondissement at the city council meeting of Tuesday 16th November 2011. This amendment will allow the construction of residential towers measuring 50 metres tall, and of office blocks measuring up to 180 metres tall.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraFunctioning as one single building and offering social housing and home ownership opportunities, the project links the strict rigidity of the Avenue de France, the railway landscape, the entrance to the Ivry suburb and finally the transition from a linear city to a vertical one.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe terraces spiral upwards, catching the light at every angle, adding to the allure of this tiered tower, whilst leaving an impression of progressive transformation. The performance resides in the fact that there is no feeling of repetition throughout this structure of 200 homes. The apartments are stacked on top of one another, but each has its own strong, unique identity.Save this picture!7th Floor PlanMany people aspire to live in suburban style, individual housing. There are many reasons for this, but in particular being able to create a true identity for one’s own home. Secondly there’s appeal of eating outside, having direct contact with the outdoors from the comfort of your own house, all whilst owning ones own land. These desires must be integrated in to the scale of the apartments in a collective building.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraWe have responded to this search for individual identity, ownership and differentiation by creating multiple exterior spaces and apartments with various, differing typologies within the collective. Living up high gives a sense of privilege: the view, the light and the sunshine… Some say they “have their head in the clouds.” Being in the city whilst also being able to shut oneself off and see the land below and the horizon: living here is like getting away from it all.Save this picture!AxonometricThe HOME project will be complete at the beginning of 2015 and will be the first housing operation of 50 metres to be built in Paris since the 1970s.

DKMS asks people to nail blood cancer with a mani-pedicure party

first_imgDKMS asks people to nail blood cancer with a mani-pedicure party Tagged with: fundraising events Fundraising ideas Blood cancer charity DKMS is challenging people to raise money to cover the costs of registering new potential blood stem cell donors by holding a mani-pedicure party. Based on the statistic that one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer every 20 minutes – the average time it takes for a manicure – DKMS is challenging people to help fight blood cancer this Blood Cancer Awareness Month by hosting a #LetsNailBloodCancer mani-pedicure party. The money raised will help DKMS register more potential blood stem cell donors and continue its work to save more lives.

DKMS has teamed up with British cosmetic brand Barry M to provide fundraising kits, including a bottle of red nail paint, to help people host a #LetsNailBloodCancer mani-pedicure party and raise money to cover the costs of registering new potential donors.Caroline Richardson, Head of Fundraising at DKMS said:“We wanted to double the feel-good factor with this campaign by encouraging people to pamper themselves while also helping to give people in need of a blood stem cell transplant a second chance at life. The #LetsNailBloodCancer parties are a great alterative to a professional manicure and our fundraising kits contain a beautiful shade of Barry M nail paint. We’ve had a fantastic response from everyone so far. We hope more people sign up for a kit.”  200 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9last_img read more

Cops and landlords go hand-in-hand in New York City

first_imgWW PHOTO: Tony MurphyWith the looming Jan. 31 expiration of the federal ban on evictions — and landlords already evicting tenants — protests, stoop defense and militant housing actions are spreading.In Brooklyn, a Dec. 11 downtown protest that began at housing court made the just demand to stop all evictions during the twin pandemics of COVID and joblessness. Ralliers were met by violence and arrests by the NYPD. The crowd of about 50 people faced dozens of police, two helicopters and at least ten police vans. Cops put 20 people in jail, one of them an 80-year-old woman.Dozens of people mobilized jail support and cheered protesters when they were released from jail later that night. Their arrests and detention also exposed them to COVID. A video of the police attacking the anti-eviction protesters went viral.— Report by Tony Murphy.

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News May 27, 2020 2,191 Views Freddie Mac’s monthly summary revealed its single-family portfolio increased annually by 14.3% in April to $2.39 billion. The single-family refinance volume was $52.1 billion in April, which represents 69% of the total single-family mortgage portfolio purchases and issuances. Freddie Mac said the total unpaid principal balance on mortgage-related investment fell by $7.8 billion in April. However, Freddie Mac states its single-family delinquency rate rose from 60 basis points in March to 64 in April. While the delinquency rate is at its highest level in 2020, it is still lower than the April 2019 level of 0.65%.The nationwide delinquency rate hit its highest single-month increase in history in April, according to the First Look at April mortgage performance data from Black Knight. According to Black Knight, some 3.6 million homeowners were past due on their mortgages as of the end of April (including the roughly 211,000 who were inactive foreclosure)—the highest number since January 2015.This is an increase of 1.6 million since March, the largest single-month jump on record. This number includes homeowners past due on mortgage payments who are not in forbearance, as well as those currently enrolled in forbearance plans and who did not make an April mortgage payment.The national delinquency rate nearly doubled to 6.45% from March, the largest single-month increase ever recorded, and nearly three times the previous record for a single month from back in late 2008. Delinquency increases in Nevada (+5.2%), New Jersey (+5.1%), and New York (+4.9%) led the states, while Miami (+7.2%), Las Vegas (+6.2%), and New York City (+5.4%) topped the 100 largest metro areas.However, according to the latest weekly survey conducting by Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) for the week ending on May 22, spring has brought a surge in mortgage applications to the housing industry. The MBA revealed that the number of mortgage applications rose 2.7% from the prior week’s statistics.This weekly survey, known as the Market Composite Index, measures the volume of mortgage loan applications on a weekly basis. This 2.7% shows the seasonally adjusted amount, while unadjusted results reveal a 3% rise from the previous week.
