How I’d use defence bargains as the best form of attack against FTSE 100 falls Looking beyond the short-term falls of the FTSE 100, the long-term prospects for defence giant BAE Systems (LSE: BAE) are excellent. This stock currently trades at a 25% discount to its year high, and looks like a bargain to me.Positive long-term outlookThe FTSE 100 defence giant is renowned for producing heavy military equipment, including fighter jets and aircraft carriers. Contracts to provide this equipment are enormous in value and long in duration. This is excellent for investors as it provides long-term visibility of future revenues and profits. The forward order book for BAE is plentiful and varied, which provides the company with a buffer from any short-term issues.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…Financials BAE reported that sales had increased by 7% to £20 billion and operating profit had increased by 5% to £2.1 billion in its full year results. It is a popular income share and has cautiously deferred its final dividend payment. If delivered, the stock will yield 5%, well above the FTSE 100 average.Why has the share price fallen?Investors will be concerned that government’s investment in defence will be under review and spending cuts will be implemented. However, due to the current number of simmering global tensions and an increase in civil unrest, I don’t think current spending levels will fall.Optimising cash flow is a priority for BAE as it nears the completion of two strategic acquisitions for future growth. However, the company has access to an enormous credit facility. So personally, I don’t see how cash flow should impact the share price.I believe the share price fall is a classic example of how a price can follow the performance of the wider FTSE 100, rather than move in relation to the performance of the business. Benjamin Graham, the man who inspired Warren Buffett, eloquently describes this as follows: “In the short run, the market is a voting machine but in the long run, it is a weighing machine.” I consider BAE to be a bargain and once it has been “re-weighed”, the share price should soar.The rise and rise of cybercrimeThese days, the defence industry is more diverse than just heavy military equipment. As more aspects of our lives move online, the risk of being a victim to cybercrime significantly increases. It is estimated damages relating to cybercrime have doubled since 2015 to $6 trillion. It is therefore easy to understand why domestic and corporate spending on cybersecurity has exploded.Avast will be the first company specialising in cybersecurity to be promoted to the FTSE 100 on 22nd June. It is one of the largest cybersecurity companies in the world, and has 12.62m paying customers and several established long-term partnerships.Revenues are currently $870m and will continue to grow strongly, but more importantly operating profit is an impressive 39%. Its dividend yield is currently below the FTSE 100 average at 2.4%. However, these payments are forecast to grow in the future. Rising revenues, profits and dividends in a growing industry makes this share another defence bargain in my opinion. Ben Race owns shares in BAE Systems.

It was a grim but important reminder that her case shined a bright light on how Black women/women of color are victims of police terror, but many still don’t get the national and international attention that Bland’s case did.” Both she and O’Neal cited the names of several other women and girls killed by police as well as the disappearances and deaths of thousands of Indigenous women and gender-oppressed people, which underscores the need for more community organization and mobilization. Following the film, Sandra’s older sister, Sharon Cooper, joined the program by teleconference, answering questions and sharing her family’s experience in fighting for answers about why and how their loved one died in jail.This amazing dialogue, sponsored by Workers World Party in collaboration with the Auburn Avenue Library, was chaired by Dianne Mathiowetz.Monica Moorehead and Dianne Mathiowetz chant, ‘Say her name, Sandra Bland’ in solidarity with Sharon Cooper, seen on screen.
About Author: Veronica Bradley Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Home / Daily Dose / Urban Exodus Isn’t a Nationwide Phenomenon February 8, 2021 13,229 Views The suburbs may be red hot when it comes to the real estate market, but the data shows that urban areas may be white-hot. Zillow reports that metropolitan areas in the Midwest, which tend to be less expensive than the surrounding suburbs, are busting the urban exodus myth to pieces.While it’s true that more people are leaving New York and San Francisco than arriving, the same can’t be said for cities in the Midwest region. For the last several months, urban home values have been growing faster than those in the suburban areas including St. Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Kansas City, Columbus, and Indianapolis.”The for-sale housing market is experiencing a pandemic-fueled surge in both urban and suburban areas,” says Alexandra Lee, Zillow economist. “Home has become more important than ever, and buyers are eager to hit the market to find their next place to live, many newly freed from their commute and suddenly finding themselves in need of more space for a home office or gym. More often than not, buyers are flocking to homes in affordable areas and pushing up prices.”More expensive housing markets do show more growth in the suburban areas. New York, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, and Denver all experienced stronger home value growth outside of the cities during parts of 2020.However, on a national level, things are even when it comes to big cities versus the surrounding areas. In fact, Zillow web traffic for urban areas matched or exceeded suburbs when the entire country was taken into account. And when it comes to home values, they grew at nearly identical rates—urban homes went up 8.8% and suburban homes went up 8.7%.When it came to renting, the cities and the suburbs tell a different story. Suburban rent swelled 5.2% from 3.8% during 2020, while urban rent fell to 1.5% from 3.6%.Zillow economists suspect the drop in urban rent may be due to the three million Americans who moved back in with their parents during the pandemic. Mostly from Generation Z, they’re the age that tends to live in urban rentals. With the implementation of COVID-19 vaccines and the reopening of the economy, they’re expected to return to the cities.All in all, the trends we’re seeing now will most likely continue into the year. 2021-02-08 Christina Hughes Babb Urban Exodus Isn’t a Nationwide Phenomenon Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Veronica Bradley has covered the consumer packaged goods industry, the tech industry, the healthcare industry, and a few other industries that impact people’s daily lives.
