It published figures which showed house prices fell 0.8 per cent in September. Prices also fell 0.7 per cent in the third quarter compared to a 1.6 per cent rise during the preceding three months. The September fall in house prices pushed the cost of the average UK home down to £211,815, just 6.1 per cent up on a year ago.The figures also confirmed data from both the Halifax and Nationwide building societies, which showed significant falls in average house prices across the UK in September. Halifax said £6,000 had been wiped off the price of an average property in the month. Simon Rubinsohn, chief economist at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) said although prices could slip a little further the downside would be quite limited. “The more pressing issue remains the relatively low level of transaction activity. This has more direct ramifications both for the health of the economy and the ability of those made unemployed to move to find work elsewhere in the country,” he said.

Enter Your Email Address 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. The stock market crash may still be keeping investors on edge, but there are developments outside of the coronavirus crisis that are quietly at work as well. One of these is the recent reshuffling of stocks in the FTSE 100 list of companies. Asset manager Intermediate Capital Group (LSE: ICP) is a new entrant to the list. Positives to noteLike all other FTSE 100 stocks, ICP has also seen a sharp fall in share price in the past weeks. And I’ve myself suggested steering clear of financials in a stock market crash. ICP may well suffer from the crash too, as an economy-sensitive stock. But as a long-term investor, I think this is also an opportune time to consider buying a promising stock. 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…ICP has got a fair bit going for it. It’s assets under management have been on the rise over the past years, and it has also shown healthy profits over time, even if they’re not consistently rising. The company’s share price has shown a steep rise in the past year.With the backdrop of its growth and financials, that makes it worth considering as a growth stock. Besides this, it has also increased its dividends per share overtime. It’s dividend yield is 5.3% at present. This is below the FTSE 100 average of 7%, but far from being anywhere near the lowest too. Risks ahead for this FTSE 100 stockBut the FTSE 100 average yield is a bit misleading at the moment anyway. Yields look high because share prices have dropped sharply, not because the companies are generating high incomes and distributing them to shareholders. In fact, a number of FTSE 100 companies’ dividends are being cut as I write, and more could at least reduce dividends. A case in point is the FTSE 100 leisure travel provider Carnival Corporation (LSE: CCL). Its dividend yield is a high 13.3%. Can it be sustained? That’s a wait and watch for CCL, which has hit upon some awful luck because of travel bans. As a financially stable company, CCL could weather a recession. But this is a most atypical situation. The challenge that CCL suddenly faces is unlikely to be resolved anytime soon. We are talking months before leisure travel could begin again.Moreover, CCL operates in a cyclical industry. If we are looking at an economic slowdown even after the crisis is resolved, there’s a huge business loss on CCL’s horizon. I think it may be at least a few quarters, if not more, before business starts turning around for the company. I’d wait for signs of a turnaround before investing in the stock. There’s been some runup in its price in the past days, and I suspect there may be more by the time the turnaround begins. But I’d be happy to pay a higher price as a premium for risk aversion.

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Phil Banker February 7, 2017 1,357 Views Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency recently released a list of Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) performance evaluations that became public last month. Of the 20 bank evaluations made public, two of them were rated “outstanding” while the other 18 were rated “satisfactory.”The list includes evaluations that became public during the month of January 2017 and includes national banks, federal savings associations, and insured federal branches of foreign banks that have received ratings, according to the OCC.The possible ratings are outstanding, satisfactory, needs to improve, and substantial noncompliance.HSBC Trust Company and United Community Bank of Lawrenceburg, Indiana were rated as “outstanding.” None of the entities received ratings of “needs to improve” or “substantial noncompliance.”The Community Reinvestment Act designed to encourage commercial banks and savings associations to help meet the needs of borrowers in all segments of their communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods. The Act prohibits the denying or increasing the cost of banking to residents of racially defined neighborhoods, better known as redlining, according to the OCC’s website.The Act instructs the appropriate federal financial supervisory agencies to encourage regulated financial institutions to help meet the credit needs of the local communities in which they are chartered, consistent with safe and sound operation. To enforce the statute, federal regulatory agencies examine banking institutions for CRA compliance, and take this information into consideration when approving applications for new bank branches or for mergers or acquisitions.For a list of all of the entities whose ratings were made public this month, click here.

The INLA is expected to confirm later today that it has decommissioned its weapons.The republican paramilitary group is believed to have been responsible for 111 murders from its formation in 1975 until its ceasefire in 1998.It was behind one of Northern Ireland’s worst atrocities when it killed 17 people in a bomb attack on the Droppin’ Well pub in Ballykelly inDerry, in 1982.In February 2009, the INLA claimed responsibility for the murder of a man the group claimed was drug dealer in Derry.Four months ago the INLA used a graveside oration outside Dublin to confirm its “armed struggle is over” and vowed to end its 35-year campaign of violence in Northern Ireland.That is expected to be confirmed today.
