Should I buy the US stock now? Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 6th December, 2020 | More on: SMT TSLA Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) shares have surged in value this year. The stock has jumped nearly 600% year-to-date catapulting the company’s founder and one of its largest shareholders, Elon Musk, into the ranks of the world’s richest. Following this performance, it’s not surprising that many investors, including yours truly, have shown an interest in buying the stock. But do the shares still have room to run after their already staggering performance in 2020? That’s what I want to find out. 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…Tesla shares: Time to buy? I’ve always found it quite difficult to value this car producer. There’s no doubt in my mind that the company has revolutionised the automotive industry. Its progress in creating affordable, high performance, long-range electric cars has forced its peers to invest tens of billions of dollars in catching up.The company launched its first car in 2008 when the number of electric vehicles on the market overall could be counted on one hand. Since then, the sector has exploded.In the first quarter of next year alone, 15 new electric vehicles are slated to hit the market. However, despite the firm’s revolutionary qualities, it has consistently struggled to earn a profit. There have also been issues with quality, and the group has had to recall several thousand vehicles for problems. Then there are Tesla’s legal problems. Several high profile cases against the company have been to court over the past few years. Nevertheless, despite these issues, Tesla shares have continued to defy gravity. As such, I have mixed emotions about the business. Yes, it has changed the world, but its lack of profits and legal battles make it difficult for me to get behind the firm as an investor. Another option Considering all of the above, rather than buying Tesla shares directly, I think I’d prefer to own the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT). This is one of the carmaker’s largest shareholders, so investors have plenty of exposure to the stock. However, the investment accounts for around 10% of the overall portfolio. The rest is comprised of other high-growth tech stocks, both in the US and China. There’s also a small portfolio of private businesses. I reckon this provides the best of both worlds. One can gain exposure to Tesla shares without taking on too much risk. I’d rather own a well-run investment trust that I can understand. If Scottish Mortgage’s managers know something about the company that I don’t, then that’s fine. If the automaker turns out to be a bad investment in the long run, then that’s also fine, the diversification provided by the rest of the investment trust’s portfolio will provide a cushion against unforeseen losses. So overall, while I am cautiously optimistic about the outlook for Tesla shares, for the reasons outlined above, I’d rather own Scottish Mortgage instead.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Treviso upset Scarlets in opening Magners League weekend

first_imgTuesday Sep 7, 2010 Treviso upset Scarlets in opening Magners League weekend The newly structured Magners League kicked off this weekend as Italian sides made their debut and Benetton Treviso picked up an upset win as they beat Scarlets 34-28 at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo.The Welsh side rested a few big names for the trip across, and despite leading 22-9 at halftime, succumbed to a historic performance from the Celtic League new boys.They racked up 18 unanswered points at the start of the second half, turning the game in their favour, and which surprised Scarlets captain Rob McCusker.“We planned for all hands on deck, getting bombarded from all angles from the word go, but it didnt happen in the first half. They came out in the second half with more of what we expected, but the game should have been out of sight by then. We could have had a bonus point by half-time,” he said.Coach Nigel Davies was criticised for not playing his more senior players, but he denied that that was the reason for the loss.“Unfortunately people will probably say we lost because we didnt play the experienced players, but its not the case. Rhys Priestland is as good as anyone at the moment and weve seen that against Treviso,” said Davies.“The team selected were good enough to win the game if they played well. We played well in the first half, we didnt in the second half,” he added.This clip is of one of Trevisos best tries of the match, scored by Ezio Galon. Theyve shown theyre not going to be the whipping boys in their first season.Elsewhere though, other Italian side Aironi went down 33-17 to Munster. Do you think the Italian teams being included in this seasons Magners League will add another much needed dimension to the tournament, or did you prefer it before?

Title Touches Everything: Streamlining Communications in Default Servicing

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Homes are a Better Investment than Retirement Savings Next: Looking for a Universal Solution Subscribe February 2, 2018 2,155 Views Title Touches Everything: Streamlining Communications in Default Servicing Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Title insurance and title-related products are an integral, and often expensive, part of the mortgage default process. Every aspect of default servicing touches title, from loss mitigation to REO disposition. Although many servicers have designed their internal functions, groups, and departments to optimize loan management, their workflow design can have the unintended consequence of creating silos. As a title provider, it has been our observation that many of these default servicing silos don’t always communicate effectively with each other when it comes to title issues, causing redundancy and adding to cost.This lack of internal communication about title appears to be counterintuitive. After the 2008 mortgage crisis, scores of regulatory changes and internal best-practices reviews were installed. Today, servicers are better-than-ever equipped to handle cross communications within default servicing due to single-point-of-contact assignments, LOS and servicing technology enhancements, and just plain old interdivision management oversight. Title is the one constant that potentially touches each department that has not been addressed and streamlined overall. Various title products ordered during the default servicing process may include the Deed Report, also known as Legal and Vesting (L&V); Property Report, often referred to as Ownership & Encumbrance (O&E); American Land Title Association (ALTA) Residential Junior Loan Policy; and the Full ALTA Title Policy.One department may order a similar type of title product that another department has already ordered, just because “that is the way it’s been done for a long time.” Simple title search work ordered for the foreclosure department could assist the bankruptcy or workout areas using the initial product ordered from one or many of the departments involved.Prior to the crisis, there was a movement to unify and/or reuse mortgage title-related products in aspects of the foreclosure and REO departments. The term used for the unification of these products was called “Cradle-to-Grave.” The concept was simple: a title commitment would be ordered at the initiation of foreclosure, supplanting the simple title update. During the long foreclosure process, the title commitment would be used to cure any and all defects prior to the foreclosure sale. At foreclosure sale, a simple and inexpensive date-down would be ordered to ensure lien priority prior to REO. If the loan moved into REO for handling post-foreclosure sale, then the foreclosure commitment could be converted to an insurable product, an Owner’s Title Policy (OTP). The marketable OTP could be procured very quickly and cheaply using the same title provider and product used throughout foreclosure.Although the concept was rudimentary and evolving prior to 2008, Cradle-to-Grave was adopted by many servicers, particularly special servicers who specialized in default servicing as they focused on reducing investor costs (severity) while looking for speed of execution (recency). Following 2008, however, the default servicing industry (and the entire mortgage servicing industry) had too much on its plate as delinquencies spiked across the country. Cradle-to-Grave and title unification took a back seat to HAMP I and II, HAFA, HARP, SPOC, consent orders, new CFPB regulations, national servicing standards, etc. The industry was in complete dislocation, with all hands on deck, grappling with a very new set of complex and sometimes conflicting servicing standards. Buzzwords like velocity, recency, and expense control were a thing of the past in the default world following the meltdown. The ship needed to get righted as focus turned toward much more pressing and immediate matters.Fast forward 10 years and mortgage servicing has found its footing. The time is right to look for title unification efficiencies within default servicing and to manage expenses throughout an expensive process. This unification of title products is low-hanging fruit. We now have better communication than ever within default servicing. The systems and personnel all “talk” to one another. Processes are no longer opaque. With a keen eye for efficiencies and cost savings, it is time to reexamine at how title products can be used throughout all default workflows, not just between the foreclosure and REO. Default title unification can be put into practice by using an experienced title provider who can help navigate across default-department boundaries by using and re-using similar title products throughout the life-of-loan within default servicing.

Abdul Nazeer and Surya Kant were considering a writ petition filed by one Munna, who is now aged about 79, convicted for his involvement in the murder of 11 persons with deadly weapons and injured others. The incident happened in the year 1989.He submitted before the Court that he is undergoing the sentence imposed on him of imprisonment for life, and has been in jail since the date of his arrest on 02.02.1989 (except for a brief period of around 2 years when he was released on goodwill by the government of Uttar Pradesh). The Government had rejected his application for premature release under Section 2 of the Uttar Pradesh Prisoners Release on Probation Act, 1938. He submitted that some of the co-­convicts seeking similar relief, were released by the Supreme Court last month.Taking note of the grounds stated in the order rejecting his plea seeking premature release, the bench observed:Even in this matter, it appears that the authority has not taken into consideration the conditions that are required to be looked into for the purpose of releasing a prisoner under Section 2 of the U.P. Act. Rather, there is only a mention that the crime that the Petitioner was involved in is heinous, and there is no appreciation of the record to suggest whether he is likely to abstain from crime and lead a peaceable life. In fact, the prison records suggest that his jail conduct is good. Additionally, it appears that the Petitioner is currently around 79 years old and has undergone around 29 years 10 months without remission, and around 36 years imprisonment including remission.The bench then allowed his petition in the same terms as in writ petition filed by his co-accused.”Merely repeating the fact that the crime is heinous and that release of such a person would send a negative message against the justice system in the society are factors de hors Section 2. Conduct in prison has not been referred to at all and the Senior Superintendent of Police and the District Magistrate confirming that the prisoner is not “incapacitated” from committing the crime is not tantamount to stating that he is likely to abstain from crime and lead a peaceable life if released from prison.”, the bench of Justices Justice RF Nariman and Navin Sinha had observed while allowing the co-accused petition.Case name: MUNNA vs. STATE OF UTTAR PRADESHCase no.: WRIT PETITION (CRIMINAL) No. 4 OF 2020 Coram:  Justices NV Ramana, S.
