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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I reckon the renewable energy sector is just getting started and I see Greencoat UK Wind (LSE: UKW) shares as a great way to play the clean tech trend.Greencoat UK Wind shares at a glanceGreencoat UK Wind is an investment trust that solely acquires and operates UK wind farms. I like the fact that the business is simple to understand.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…The company has 38 operating wind farms across the country. It has also invested in a UK wind farm that’s under development. This adds an element of construction risk.Within the operating portfolio (by value), 70% is invested in onshore wind farms and 30% in offshore. I like that most of the assets are only up to 10 years old. This means that Greencoat UK Wind doesn’t have to worry about replacing old equipment for some time yet.The investment trust earns revenue by selling wind energy to utility providers. I also like that these sales are usually based on contracts, which can last for decades. This means the stock can benefit from some degree of visibility over its long-term cash flows.The UK’s goal for renewable energyLast year, the Government announced its plans to make Britain the world leader in green energy. For me, the environment for UK renewable energy remains supportive, which should be positive for Greencoat shares in the long-term.Following the 10-point plan laid out by the Prime Minister in November 2020, the UK is increasing its support for renewable energy. This includes boosting its efforts to buy offshore wind farms. I like that in the same month, Greencoat UK Wind announced that it had agreed to acquire a 49% stake in the Humber Gateway offshore wind farm.The attractive dividendGreencoat UK Wind shares offer a dividend yield of over 5%. And it aims to provide investors an annual dividend that increases in line with UK inflation.This means in addition to some capital growth, if I invest, I could also expect a growing level of income. This is one of the reasons why I’d buy Greencoat UK Wind shares in my diversified portfolio.What are the risks?As with all investments, there are risks with the stock. This level of income generation is not guaranteed. There are several factors that could impact profits and hence the dividend. A reduction in government support, higher costs, low wind energy prices and competition could all impact Greencoat UK Wind.The shares trade at a 15% premium to its Net Asset Value (NAV). This means that the investment trust isn’t cheap. But I’m not surprised given how investors have been income hungry, like me, during the coronavirus pandemic.FundraisingIn September 2020, Greencoat UK Wind announced that it intends to raise capital through a share issuance programme. This will be conducted in various tranches over the next 12 months.I should mention that the new shares will dilute the holdings of existing Greencoat UK Wind shareholders. But the the money raised will be used to pay down debt and to expand the wind farm portfolio. This in turn will diversify the overall portfolio and could make the investment trust a leading player in the UK wind energy market. As a long-term investor, this sound promising and is another reason why I’ll be buying Greencoat UK Wind shares in my portfolio.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Greencoat UK Wind shares: should I buy now?

first_imgJanet Thorne, CEO of Reach Volunteering, added:“At Reach, we’ve found that if you are designing or delivering digital services, conventional methods won’t work. You need to approach things differently, so it’s really useful to have a set of clear, jargon-free principles that spell out what ‘good’ looks like so that everyone, including staff, trustees and funders, understand the approach and can pull in the same direction.CAST is to use, test and refine the principles over the coming months, and is also inviting more charities to participate.

They found digital design principles were commonly used by the most successful organisations to help them ‘build the right thing in the right way’, acting as:A useful checklist for those just starting outA communications tool for those already running digital services to show good practice to key stakeholders (including trustees)Guidance for funders on what to look for when assessing applications and offering grantee supportOver 50 organisations, from small nonprofits to tech for good funders, fed in to a process of in-depth research and testing to create a list of sector-wide digital design principles, facilitated by CAST. According to CAST, the new list builds on existing sets of principles, with advice and examples specifically relevant to UK charities, and aims to counter some of the fragmentation and miscommunication in the sector and offer clear direction and support for all nonprofits.Dan Sutch, Co-founder and Director at CAST, said,“Too many charity services are still failing to respond to the changing digital behaviours and expectations of their users. Digital service delivery urgently needs to become a core competency, not a ‘nice to have’. We wanted to bring together sector organisations to co-design a dynamic resource that helps navigate this shift. Tech can be a powerful tool but it’s how you use it that’s important – these principles are a way of saying ‘here’s how we do it right’ and we hope to see them embedded into organisations’ culture and practices.” Advertisementcenter_img Set of principles launches to help charities improve digital service design AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 Melanie May | 31 May 2018 | Newslast_img read more

More information .Reporters Without Borders appeals for calm and respect for media personnel after the deaths of two journalists in attacks of unprecedented violence in less than a week. We also urge the Ugandan authorities to take these murders seriously and to quickly establish the motives. Investigators should not rule out the possibility that they were politically motivated or linked to the victims’ work as journalists, especially as elections are scheduled for next February and March.Aged 29, Ssentongo was found by a farmer lying in a pool of blood a few yards from where he was attacked while on his way to present the morning news programme. He died from his injuries a few hours later in a hospital. Neither his money nor his mobile phone was taken, which clearly indicates that robbery was not the motive. Ssentongo, who had been presenting the news on Prime Radio for the past two years, was also a member of the opposition Democratic Party, for which he had run as a candidate in a local election. A team of policemen were sent to examine the scene of the murder.This was the third murder of a journalist in Uganda in the past two and half years. Rebecca Wilbrod Kasujja, the presenter of a morning show on community radio Buwama FM in the southern district of Mpigi, was killed in February 2008.

Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News.

A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago In the latest Freddie Mac Multi-Indicator Market Index (MiMi), which measures the stability of the U.S. housing market, three additional metro areas entered the “stable” range in May while the overall index value pushed its way up to slightly below stable at 79.2.The three markets that improved to stable range in the May MiMi were Stockton, California; Madison, Wisconsin; and Miami, Florida, according to Freddie Mac.The 79.2 value for the latest MiMi, which was released Wednesday, indicated a weak overall housing market but improved by 0.71 percentage points from April to May and by more than 2 percentage points over the three-month period from the beginning of March to the end of May. The MiMi value improved by more than 4 percentage points year-over-year in May, according to Freddie Mac.The all-time high for the national MiMi is 121.7, set in April 2006 prior to the recession. The all-time low for the national MiMi was 57.2, set in October 2010 at the height of the foreclosure crisis. The housing market has rebounded by 34 percent since hitting that all-time low nearly five years ago.”MiMi continues to deliver good news on the housing front as more markets continue improving,” Freddie Mac Deputy Chief Economist Len Kiefer said. “Likewise, it’s becoming clearer every month that after several years of local trends largely reflecting national trends, we are getting back to more normal times where local housing markets develop based on their own unique economies. For example, housing markets in the West and Southwest continue to be the bright spot of the recovery and spring homebuying season with strong purchase activity fueled by an improving local economy and job picture. Yet, even within these regions, MiMi shows noticeable differences. Meanwhile, markets throughout Florida showed significant improvement this month not because of robust home buying activity, but because more borrowers became current on their mortgages, with just a few showing better purchase activity. Florida markets, much like those in Nevada or Arizona, while improving rapidly, still have significant work to do to get back to their benchmark stable ranges.”In May, 26 states plus the District of Columbia reported MiMi values in the stable range, led by the District of Columbia (100.5) and North Dakota (96.4). Meanwhile, 38 of the top 100 metro areas nationwide had stable MiMi values in May, led by Fresno (95.8) and Honolulu (93.1). According to Freddie Mac, 43 out of 50 states and 95 of the top 100 metros showed an improving three-month trend in May, compared to 42 states plus the District of Columbia and 95 of 100 metros in May 2014.Click here to see the complete May 2015 MiMi from Freddie Mac.

Next: Industry Reacts: Fed Cuts Rates Again Tagged with: credit CRT Freddie Mac Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Freddie Mac recently announced that its Single-Family Credit Risk Transfer (CRT) programs have surpassed the $50 billion mark in transferring credit risk to private investors and (re)insurers. From program inception to date, the company has transferred a portion of the credit risk on more than $1.3 trillion of Single-Family mortgages based on unpaid principle balance (UPB) at issuance.Per Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) guidelines, Freddie Mac now transfers the credit risk on more than 90% of the UPB on CRT-eligible, newly-acquired Single-Family mortgages.“I am proud of our accomplishments and the positive impact we are making on the U.S. housing finance industry,” said Mike Reynolds, VP, Single-Family Credit Risk Transfer. “Freddie Mac will continue to lead the industry with innovation in the CRT space and set the standard for credit risk management.”The goal of Freddie Mac’s Single-Family CRT programs is to transfer credit risk away from U.S. taxpayers to global private capital via securities and (re)insurance policies. Earlier this year, Freddie Mac reported a slight increase in comprehensive income in Q2 2019 from the previous quarter, up to $1.8 billion.“Freddie Mac’s second quarter continued our growing track record of strong returns, solid risk management and an unwavering commitment to our mission,” said Freddie Mac CEO David Brickman. “Once again, we made home possible for hundreds of thousands of families across the country.”Freddie Mac’s release also notes how the GSE prevented foreclosure in the first half of 2019, having completed approximately 26,000 single-family loan workouts in the six months ended June 30, 2019.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac completed 1,746 foreclosure prevention actions in April 2019, according to the latest FHFA Foreclosure Prevention, Refinance, and Federal Property Manager’s Report. The report states that the GSEs have completed 4,334,550 since the start of conservatorship in September 2008.In the six months that ended on June 30, 2019, Freddie Mac provided approximately $212 billion in liquidity to the market. Freddie funded around 702,000 single-family homes, approximately 445,000 of which were home purchase loans, and around 343,000 multifamily rental units.
