Why I’d ditch buy-to-let property and invest like Warren Buffett to get rich

first_img I reckon buying and letting property is a difficult way to get returns from an investment. Apart from all the expense and hassle involved in buying and running a bricks-and-mortar investment, some experts involved in the property market are predicting modest rental returns ahead, as Rupert Hargreaves recently pointed out.The headline of this article says I’d ditch buy-to-let property, and it’s true I’d certainly ditch the idea of taking on a property to rent out for the first time now. To me, property prices have run too far ahead of affordability – the gap between the average wage and the asking price of a starter home is too high.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…Headwinds in the sectorOn top of that, the buy-to-let sector has been facing an onslaught of regulatory changes designed to make the option less attractive. And it’s working. I reckon that going forward it will be harder to make a profit from a buy-to-let business than it has been in the past. But whether I’d ditch rentable property that I already owned is another question. Everyone must make their own judgement about that kind of situation. Instead of buy-to-let, I’d aim to invest like Warren Buffett to get rich. Shares on the stock market have outperformed all other major asset classes over the long haul, and I think they will continue to do so. One great thing about owning shares and share-backed investments such as funds is that they are usually easy to get in and out of, unlike physical property.Warren Buffett is perhaps the most successful investor of all time, so I think it’s worth studying his approach to investing in stocks and shares. He famously thinks of shares from a business perspective. When he buys shares he has part ownership of the underlying business. And just like we may hold on to buy-to-let property for a long time, he tends to hold on to his shares for a long time.Buffett’s approachBut Buffet doesn’t buy shares in any old company. Key to his strategy is looking for shares with a high-quality underlying business. In other words, he’s looking for companies operating in a strong market niche, which will lead to a good record of trading and a robust and consistent financial record.The final part of the Buffett approach to investing in shares involves looking for good value. The idea is that if we over-pay for shares they could under-perform as an investment even if the underlying business is good quality. He’s known for being greedy when others are fearful. So, when the stock market is weak and everyone is worried, he tends to snap up the shares of the quality enterprises he’s been watching.

After several years of poor performance, the Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) share price has woken up since the beginning of 2020. From a low of around 130p at the beginning of March, the stock has jumped to more than 300p, at the time of writing. And, following this performance, I’m seriously considering adding this stock to my portfolio. If the shares continue on their current trajectory, I believe there’s a good chance the stock could continue to rise in the near term. 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…Operating performanceRoyal Mail has been struggling since its IPO in 2013. Declining letter volumes have hit the company’s top line, while costs have remained stubbornly high. The group has undertaken several restructuring programmes to try and turn things around. Unfortunately, none of these seem to have yielded the desired results. That has hurt investor sentiment towards the Royal Mail share price. However, it’s starting to look as if 2020 is Royal Mail’s year. The company has benefited from a surge in parcel delivery volumes during the pandemic. Its latest update noted revenue increased 9.2% across the group for the 26 weeks ended 27 September. Parcels revenue increased by 33.2%, offsetting a 20.5% decline in letter sales. Despite this performance, the group reported an operating loss of £20m for the half-year. Rising losses at the domestic business were more than offset by growth at the firm’s international division. Operating profit at the international division hit £166m. What’s in store for the Royal Mail share price? The last time I covered the company, I said I was excited about Royal Mail’s decision to invest in its parcels business. I continue to stand by this view. I believe today’s trading update shows why this is going to be a sensible course for the corporation. The e-commerce market is booming, and that’s unlikely to change after the pandemic. Companies have to adapt and change with the times. While Royal Mail has been slow on this front, it’s now taking action. Management has introduced parcel postboxes, parcel pick-up services and automated parcel processing. These initiatives should give the business an edge over its competitors.I think that’s what the organisation has been lacking for so long. There are plenty of other firms that offer the same parcel delivery service as Royal Mail. The company’s edge is its brand, which is recognised across the UK. I believe many consumers would rather use the firm for that reason. However, a lack of options has forced customers to go elsewhere. Management is now taking action to recapture market share. And the initial figures suggest these efforts are taking hold. As such, I’m going to be taking a closer look at the Royal Mail share price. If sales continue to increase, I think this could be a good sign the business’s turnaround has finally started to take shape. That would be a good sign that it’s time to buy the stock for my portfolio.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaveslast_img read more

The national index covers all nine U.S. census divisions.While prices were strong in Q4 compared to the previous year, they were down relative to Q3, dropping 0.3 percent.”The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index ended its best year since 2005,” said David M. Blitzer, chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices. “However, gains are slowing from month-to-month and the strongest part of the recovery in home values may be over.”Blitzer also pointed out there are other factors to consider when looking at the big picture.”Recent economic reports suggest a bleaker picture for housing,” he said, citing weak numbers in existing-home sales and new construction. “Some of the weakness reflects the cold weather in much of the country. However, higher home prices and mortgage rates are taking a toll on affordability.”For just December, the smaller 10- and 20-city composites were little changed, with only the 20-city index showing a minor decline.Year-over-year, the 10- and 20-city indices posted gains of 13.6 percent and 13.4 percent, respectively, approximately 30 basis points lower than their November increases.As of December, average home prices across the United States were back to mid-2004 levels, remaining down about 20 percent from their peaks in summer of 2006.A few cities stood out in the most recent report. According to Dow Jones Indices, Chicago posted its highest annual return since December 1988, while Dallas posted climbed to another new peak with its largest annual gain since its inception in 2000.Denver, which set an all-time high as recently as last September, reported a 0.1 percent monthly drop in home prices, bringing it down 0.7 percent from its peak. Phoenix, coming off of more than two years of consecutive monthly gains, posted a 0.3 percent price drop, its largest since March 2011.Year-over-year, all 20 cities tracked showed positive growth. Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Francisco all posted improvements of more than 20 percent, though they also showed lower annual rates compared to November.At the same time, most of the cities ranked at the bottom in terms of annual growth—including Denver, Washington, D.C., and New York—experienced acceleration in home prices.

Cheetah attacks Columbus Zoo employee; staffer hospitalized and released

first_imgZocha_K/iStockBy EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — An employee at Ohio’s Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has been released from the hospital after being attacked by a cheetah on Thursday, the zoo said.The incident took place just before 10 a.m. while two employees were walking the 4-year-old cheetah, named Isabelle, for her daily exercise, the zoo said.Isabelle was harnessed per normal protocol, the zoo said.As a keeper began walking toward Isabelle and the two employees, the cheetah “was calm and purring,” the zoo said in a statement. The keeper was invited to move closer, and when the keeper approached, “Isabelle crouched down and lunged,” the zoo said.The zoo did not elaborate on the staffer’s injuries.Because the injured keeper works with giraffes and other hoofstock, the zoo said it believes “that, due to normal animal behavior, the scent of these other animals on the keeper triggered a natural instinct in Isabelle, who reacted.”“This is Isabelle’s first incident and as per the Delaware County General Health District, she will be placed in a 30-day quarantine just to ensure that she does not show signs of illness,” the zoo said.“The incident will be fully evaluated,” the zoo said, adding that the attack was not in a public place.Isabelle was in the news just last year when she gave birth to two cheetah cubs via in-vitro fertilization — a first at the Columbus Zoo. They were the first cubs for Izzy, who served as the surrogate.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

From industrial windfalls to office market freefalls: Chicago’s biggest real estate stories of 2020

first_img203 Sheridan Road in Winnetka and 3507 West 51st Street on the Southwest Side (Redfin, 42 Floors, iStock)Let’s start with a bit of good news — given that 2020 didn’t provide Chicago’s real estate market with much of it.The industrial sector withstood a bruising year far better than most others, sustained in large part by Amazon. As e-commerce orders soared during the pandemic, the Jeff Bezos behemoth went on a warehouse-leasing binge in Chicago.But other asset classes in the city have spent the last nine-plus months on a skyscraper elevator in freefall. The ride has left much of the industry queasy and stumbling as it heads into 2021.During the early months of Covid, as Chicago retailers were still grappling with lost revenue, protests over the police killing of George Floyd led to widespread store looting and vandalism across downtown and other neighborhoods. Then it happened again in the summer. Pandemic-related closures and restrictions have devastated those business owners and landlords, with many now barely hanging on.The local hotel industry also remains among the most hobbled in the U.S., while Chicago’s office market, once a turbocharged engine, has sputtered. Companies have shed downtown space at alarming rates, with a growing number looking to sublease and some ditching their leases entirely.But Chicago’s housing market may be one other silver lining. Sales have picked up in recent months, especially in the suburbs, after having stalled out earlier in the year.Industrial strengthAmazon went on a warehouse shopping spree. From March through July, the e-commerce giant inked lease deals for 11 million square feet of distribution centers in the Chicago area alone. Amazon accounted for over 50 percent of new leasing volume during the second quarter in Chicago, according to Colliers International, though the total fell in Q3. Still, investors have taken notice. Last week, investment firm GCP paid $42 million for a 316,000-square-foot Amazon-leased warehouse on the Southwest Side, among the priciest deals in the city this year on a per-square-foot basis.Room at the innsWith Chicago’s hotel occupancy among the lowest nationwide, loan defaults have piled up. Recent appraisals have slashed property values, including at the Palmer House Hilton and the 610-room JW Marriott. And, as of September, the pandemic had cost the city about 12,000 hospitality jobs.By October, numerous hotels in Cook County had skipped their latest property tax payments, adding up to nearly $500 million. Even the Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport, owned by the city of Chicago and operated by Hilton, was late in paying its taxes.But some investors also went bargain-hunting. In November, billionaire entrepreneur Joe Mansueto agreed to buy the Waldorf Astoria Chicago for $54 million, a year after its lender seized control of the Gold Coast hotel in foreclosure proceedings. And a select few firms eyed new construction. Developer Marc Realty Capital wants to build a 296-key hotel in Fulton Market. It would be the second hotel project the company is slating for the trendy neighborhood. Marc Realty and investor Relu Stan filed plans for the 14-story hotel at 311 North Sangamon Street last month.Retail reckoningThe hits kept coming for Chicago’s retail industry. On top of dealing with the pandemic, many Magnificent Mile and Downtown stores sustained damage from looting and vandalism in late May and again in August, when some protests over police brutality turned violent.More than 2,500 businesses hurt by Covid-19 and the lootings did get a boost in August, receiving a total of $46 million in grants. But many others said they still hadn’t received payouts after filing business interruption claims, despite Gov. J.B. Pritzker telling insurers to “do the right thing and do it fast.”Adding to the problems, the restaurant industry received mixed messages about Covid restrictions from the state’s two most powerful elected officials.In late October, Pritzker said he was imposing new restrictions on indoor dining in Chicago, while Mayor Lori Lightfoot began trying to change his mind over concerns about the fragile state of the economy. But with Covid cases continuing to rise, a stay-at-home order was imposed; indoor dining remains suspended and nonessential businesses must close from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.Malls get mauledMore mall owners around the Chicago area sought to give up on their struggling retail properties, which have been squeezed by capacity limits and Covid closures. Among them is Starwood Retail Partners, which in late October decided to hand over the keys to its nearly 1 million-square-foot Louis Joliet Mall, about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. Starwood had last made a payment on its $85 million CMBS loan in March.Less than a month before that, BlitzLake Partners and GW Properties relinquished their Orland Park mall after skipping more than 90 days of loan payments. The duo is now facing a multimillion-dollar lender foreclosure lawsuit tied to the 164,000-square-foot shopping center.One note of optimism: A Brookfield Property Partners venture landed a $475 million refinancing of the second-largest shopping mall in the Chicago area. In October, Morgan Stanley provided the debt on the 2.2-million-square-foot Oakbrook Center, which Brookfield owns with an affiliate of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System. The deal marked the largest refinancing of a Chicago-area commercial property since June 2018.Office overloadThe fall of downtown the city’s office market, which entered 2020 riding high, was swift and sharp. By the third quarter, remote working had pushed the vacancy rate to 16.5 percent, the highest it had been in a decade. Available office sublease space, meanwhile, reached a record 4.6 million square feet in the same period, as companies — including tech firms that had recently plowed into the market — scaled back their footprints and future plans.“They’re downsizing or rightsizing,” CBRE’s Bradley Serot told The Real Deal’s Akiko Matsuda in October. “They don’t need the space as robust and large because they’re not going to recruit as much as what they were planning.”But not everyone is heading out. 601W Companies, which transformed the Old Post Office into a modern office building, is taking on another major redevelopment project nearby. The company will pay $180 million to overhaul a 591,000-square-foot property at 801 South Canal Street. In February, 601W paid $68 million for the vacant office building.And this fall, Pittsburgh-based Normandy Properties dropped $412 million for the McDonald’s global HQ building in Fulton Market. The seller, a joint venture of Sterling Bay and JPMorgan Chase, developed the 575,000-square-foot building in 2018. The fast-food giant has a long-term lease and occupies about 85 percent of the nine-story building. The deal also marked Chicago’s priciest investment sale in 2020. The second spot on that list belongs to Michael Shvo, who in January paid $376 million for the nearly 50-year-old “Big Red” office tower in downtown.Home, home againThe Chicago-area housing market evaporated in the early months of the pandemic — particularly in the city’s core. But since this summer, it has been charging back. Sales jumped in August, when more than 13,000 homes sold across the nine counties, about 20 percent over the same period the year before.A recent weekly report from Midwest Real Estate Data showed Chicago-area home prices have maintained a double-digit increase year-over-year ever since, according to Crain’s.As home sales picked up in the city, it surged in the suburbs with buyers prioritizing more space over proximity to Chicago’s central business district. That trend was most apparent at the top of the market. Five of the 10 most expensive homes that sold in Cook County in 2020 were in tony Winnetka. Last year, just one suburban property made the top 10 list.And in a sign of the times, the priciest home that sold during the pandemic this year came with 9,000 square feet of private beach.Contact the author Tags2020 in Reviewamazonchicago industrial marketChicago office market Full Name* Email Address* Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Message*last_img read more
