Two FTSE 100 shares that have seen insider buying in the stock market crash

first_img Insider buying – where corporate executives and directors are buying shares in their own companies – is definitely something that is worth keeping a close eye on when researching stocks.An insider may sell company stock for a variety of reasons (paying tax liabilities, diversifying their portfolio, buying property, etc). However, if they’re buying, there’s only one reason – they expect the stock to rise.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…In the current environment, where economic uncertainty is so high, I’d argue insider buying carries even more weight. If an insider is buying company stock now, it sends a clear signal they think their business is resilient enough to weather the economic downturn we’re facing.They also believe the share price is likely to rebound. That’s extremely useful information to know, given that some companies may not survive the next 12 months.With that in mind, here’s a look at two FTSE 100 firms that have seen significant levels of insider buying over the last month.Insider buying at Reckitt BenckiserOne is FTSE 100 stock Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB). It manufactures products consumers tend to buy irrespective of economic conditions. It also manufactures products likely to be in high demand in the current environment, such as Dettol disinfectant and wipes, Lysol disinfectant spray, and Mucinex cough medication.Over the last month, a number of top-tier insiders have purchased shares including: Image source: Getty Images Edward Sheldon, CFA | Friday, 3rd April, 2020 | More on: MNG RKT “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” COO Health Aditya Sehgal (£560k) CFO Jeffrey Carr (£1.15m) Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. COO Hygiene Harold Van Den Broek (£480k) CIO Jonathan Daniels (£168k) Enter Your Email Address This level of buying – which is the highest for a number of years – looks very interesting to me. I like the fact that senior management, who are likely to have the most information on the company’s sales and future prospects, have been loading up on stock. This suggests management is confident about the future, which is reassuring in the current environment.Just recently, I said RB is a good stock to own right now. This high level of insider buying reinforces my view. Insider buying at M&GAnother FTSE 100 company that’s seen insider buying in recent weeks is financial services group M&G (LSE: MNG), which recently demerged from Prudential. Since mid-March, the following insiders have loaded up on stock: 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.

That’s a huge drop of more than 55%. Yet less than a month ago, the company said: “We have made a good start to life as an independent business and we are strongly positioned for growth.”It also says its balance sheet was “resilient” and that its Solvency II ratio was 166% – firmly within its risk appetite.All things considered, I think the medium-to-long-term risk/reward proposition here is attractive. Given the high level of insider buying, I think there’s a good chance the stock will bounce back from the recent fall, in time.

Market crash 2020: I’d buy today’s cheap stocks to retire early

The 2020 stock market crash has left many shares trading at relatively cheap prices. Ongoing risks such as the coronavirus pandemic and political uncertainty in Europe mean the valuations of some companies have failed to rebound to their 2019 levels.As such, there may be buying opportunities available on a long-term basis. Over time, the valuations of today’s cheap stocks could improve. In doing so, they could aid an investor in building a retirement nest egg from which to draw a passive income in older age.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…Cheap stocks after the 2020 stock market crashThe 2020 stock market crash has caused investors to re-evaluate their views on a number of sectors. For example, companies operating in industries that are being directly impacted by a weak economic outlook have seen their valuations come under severe pressure. They include sectors such as banking, energy and travel & leisure, where the profit growth potential of many businesses is likely to disappoint in the short run.While some cheap stocks have weak financial positions and lack competitive advantages over their peers, others may currently be undervalued. Investors may have devalued companies operating in unfavourable sectors without understanding their recovery potential, for example. This may provide long-term investors with an opportunity to use the 2020 market crash to their advantage. That is in terms of buying high-quality companies at a discount to their intrinsic values.A stock market recoveryToday’s cheap stocks could deliver strong recoveries from the 2020 stock market crash. Ultimately, an improving economic outlook that provides more prosperous operating conditions is likely to come into existence over the coming years.The world economy has, after all, always recovered from its periods of decline to post positive GDP growth. Large amounts of fiscal and economic stimulus have already been announced in major economies. So, the outlook for the world economy could improve significantly in the coming years.With undervalued shares having significant capital appreciation potential, they may offer a sound means of generating a retirement nest egg. Their appeal on a relative basis seems to be high. A sustained period of low interest rates could be ahead.This may mean that the returns on cash and bonds fail to beat inflation by a substantial amount. High house prices in many economies mean the prospects for property investors may be less attractive than for those investors who buy cheap stocks after the stock market crash.A long-term outlookClearly, a recovery after the market crash may take some time for today’s cheap shares. However, by taking a long-term view and holding high-quality companies through a likely bull market, an investor could improve their retirement prospects. They could even outperform the stock market through using its volatility to their advantage in the coming years.

The epidemic situation redefined our existing model and style of living. It broke the order we are used to. Closed within the four walls of our very comfortable apartments, we now dream of going outside in a sense of security and peace. We dream about a place somewhere “outside the city”, about our asylum, where no one will tell us what and how to do. The answer to the above is the design of Cichosza Cottages. Additionally, the Investor assumed the organic development of this place.Save this picture!© Joanna Prokopowicz, Sonia PasternokSave this picture!© Joanna Prokopowicz, Sonia PasternokIn the future, it may grow and become a haven for others, a place of tranquility, a springboard from everyday life away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The project was created from a sketch connecting three lines. Just that and so much. Three lines marked the body of the building, shaping its functions into form.Save this picture!© Joanna Prokopowicz, Sonia PasternokTwo buildings were built. On the one hand, it has a similar external shape. On the other hand, completely different in terms of functionality. Designed and adapted to the needs of two generations of one family. Integrated, however, through a common terrace that is an intergenerational link. “Architecture doesn’t need any ornaments or unnecessary additions.Save this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!Plan – First floorArchitecture doesn’t have to be fashionable. Architecture should be responsible both for its users and external recipients. By design, architecture should complement the landscape in which it is created. Architecture co-creates the landscape, integrates elements of nature and the product of human imagination. It is especially important when we design in a naturally shaped and non-urbanized place. Where nature plays a decisive role and is its main asset.Save this picture!© Joanna Prokopowicz, Sonia PasternokThis was the case here – a cottage in a glade in the middle of the forest.  The facade is finished with Scandinavian larch, the edges of which have been tanned to further emphasize the linear arrangement of the facade. The dynamic shapes and slenderness of the lines are additionally emphasized by the use of two different materials: wood and fiber cement boards.” “The building’s assumption shows fragments of the surrounding space, inviting them to enter. Each window is a different image with a different perspective on different planes.

Social investment funds could help solve Britain’s housing crisis, says CAF report

first_img Tagged with: Funding housing  160 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Social investment funds could help solve Britain’s housing crisis, says CAF report Melanie May | 21 January 2019 | News  159 total views,  1 views today A report is calling for community groups to receive access to affordable land and early stage funding by Government and private institutions to help to solve the UK housing crisis.Commissioned by Charities Aid Foundation, the Helping Communities Build report looks at community-led housing schemes run by Community Land Trusts (CLTs) and supported by social investment and philanthropic capital. The schemes enable local people to manage and create housing projects for their own communities, so new properties are built with local communities in mind, and a focus on affordable housing.However, only 826 affordable homes have been built in England and Wales via these schemes to date, with just 5,810 community-led homes in the pipeline in England.The report’s authors, Dr. Tom Archer and Dr. Stephen Green, both Research Fellows at Sheffield Hallam University specialising in housing development, and assisted by Charlie Fisher of architecture practice Transition by Design, believe community-led housing could achieve much more if community groups had access to affordable land and finance at an early, pre-development stage.The report advocates several measures including reducing interest rates, particularly on pre-development loans, and creating a range of financial products that enable groups to plan and operate effectively.CAF’s social investment arm CAF Venturesome has provided finance to CLT schemes through 57 investments to 33 individual groups around the country since 2008. All of the investments have come from philanthropic capital, with funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the Nationwide Foundation, the Tudor Trust and private donors.Holly Piper, Head of CAF Venturesome said:“Community-led housing schemes such as Community Land Trusts must be taken seriously as a vital component in addressing this country’s shortage of housing. With the right support, such as access to affordable land and early stage finance, these are social investments that could use philanthropic capital to help fix a huge problem in our society.”“The British housing crisis is a complex problem and requires a broad range of solutions if it’s to be fixed. But this is one way to keep up with housing demand and meet the housing needs in communities which otherwise would be damaged by a lack of affordable homes.”The Helping Communities Build report comes a fortnight after the announcement from a cross-party commission that the Government must launch the biggest council and social house building initiative on record.Currently, only 6,000 social homes are built each year in England. More than three million homes must be built in the next 20 years however, according to a year-long commission featuring former Labour Party leader Ed Miliband and the former Conservative Treasury minister and Goldman Sachs Chief Economist, Lord Jim O’Neill.

But she will have to appear before the court on 7 August when she faces between three and 12_ years in prison for belonging to the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (MLKP).She was arrested on 22 February 1997 and taken to the anti-terrorist section of state security headquarters in Istanbul, where she was tortured and raped during 13 days of interrogation, before being sent to the prison at Gebze, where she has since been held. Rape charges against the police were dismissed and her lawyer, Ercan Kanar, has appealed to the European Court in connection with the rape and the excessive length of the legal procedure against her. He called on 27 March this year for her release and criticised the irregularities in her prosecution.Baskaya, an academic and columnist with the pro-Kurdish daily Özgür Bakis, has been imprisoned since 29 June last year at Ankara’s Kalecik jail. On 26 January this year, the supreme court confirmed a 16-month jail sentence passed on him by the state security court for “separatist propaganda.” On 10 May, Istanbul’s no.2 state security court rejected his request for release and suspension of the sentence, despite the recent revision of Article 8 of the anti-terrorist law under which he was charged. The next hearing of the case is set for tomorrow (7 June).Aksoy, owner of the local newspaper Olusum in the southeastern town of Gaziantep, was jailed on 29 May in the town’s Nizip prison by order of the state prosecutor for allegedly “separatist writings” and “offending the reputation of the state” by calling it “fascist” in an article headed “Deniz, Hüseyin, Yusuf,” which paid tribute to three prominent figures of the 1968 generation.Four other journalists, Kemal Evcimen, Hasan Özgün, Nureddin Sirin and Mustafa Benli, are also in prison for their part in disseminating news and publications considered a threat to public order or state unity, although the material is entirely within the bounds of freedom and diversity of information by democratic standards.
