The best UK tech shares I’d buy today

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 11th July, 2020 | More on: JET SGE Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! UK tech shares have been big beneficiaries of the coronavirus crisis. Indeed, the crisis has only accelerated trends that have been in place for several years now. Technology has become a lifesaver for many companies and consumers in the crisis, and this is unlikely to change. Therefore, now could be a great time to buy a basket of the best UK tech shares such as the two companies profiled below. 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…UK tech shares surge ahead Sage (LSE: SGE) is one of the most high-profile UK tech shares. The accounting software provider has been around for decades, but in recent years, its growth has accelerated.The company has moved its platform onto the cloud, which has helped broaden its customer base. A monthly subscription also provides a recurring revenue stream for the group. As UK tech shares go, Sage is one of the most established and profitable businesses. In 2019, the firm reported an operating profit of £382m. Its latest trading update shows management still believes revenue will grow for the full year. Organic recurring revenue rose by a better-than-expected 10.3% in the first half. While the pandemic has impacted new customer acquisitions, Sage is still optimistic that its offering will prove popular with clients in the long run. To help those customers that are struggling, it is offering payment ‘forgiveness’. This may help build client loyalty. Management is so confident in the company’s outlook it recently increased Sage’s half-year dividend by 2.5%. Of all the UK tech shares on the market, Sage has one of the best dividend track records. Its payout has risen at 7% per annum for the past seven years. As such, it may be worth buying this income and growth champion as part of a diversified portfolio of UK tech shares. Just Eat TakeawayJust Eat Takeaway (LSE: JET) has seen sales boom in the pandemic as customers have been stuck at home. The number of orders processed by the group increased by 6% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2020.The company wants to capitalise on this success by buying US peer Grubhub. The $7.3bn transaction will create a global tech giant, and make Just Eat one of the most successful UK tech shares. Unfortunately, the company’s growth prospects mean that the stock is relatively expensive. Analysts have the stock trading on a 2021 price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 75. However, I think it is highly likely that analysts will revise their 2020 growth forecasts for the business higher due to the boom in demand in the pandemic. Just Eat is one of the few UK tech shares that has a global footprint. That deserves a premium over the rest of the sector, I feel. With that in mind, it may be worth buying the stock despite its high valuation.  Image source: Getty Images.

Salas shooter may have been targeting at least one other female judge

first_imgkali9/iStockBy JON HAWORTH and AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Roy Den Hollander, whom the FBI called the “primary subject” in the shootings at Judge Esther Salas’ home in New Jersey may have been targeting at least one other female judge. After investigators searched the car in which Hollander was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound they also discovered the name and photo of New York State’ Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, her spokesman told ABC News.“We were alerted that her photo and name were in his recovered effects,” said the spokesman, Lucian Chalfen, conforming a detail first reported by the New York Times. Hollander is suspected of shooting and killing Salas’ son as well as her husband in an attack at the family’s New Jersey home on Sunday night. He allegedly wore a face covering and a FedEx uniform, law enforcement sources told ABC News, and he used an ordinary car to make a getaway. Salas’ husband, Mark Anderl, is alive and recovering at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey.Hollander’s body was discovered in a car by a municipal employee in the town of Rockland, New York. He died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, the sources said. New York State Police were on scene and the FBI was called. The suspect had previously received media attention for lawsuits challenging perceived infringements of “men’s rights,” on networks like Fox News, Comedy Central and MSNBC. Meanwhile, the FBI is also investigating whether Hollander may be connected to the death, in California, of another attorney who also describes himself as anti-feminist, Mark Anglelucci, according to law enforcement sources.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

World first: UK firm to stream fully interactive TV-style property auctions

first_img An national auction house based in Sussex is to launch what it claims is a world first for the housing sector – fully real-time interactive property auctions.During the digital realtime streamed property auctions bidders will be able to exchange on each property at the ‘fall of the gavel’ hosted via a TV format similar to the way QVC sells clothes and hoovers.The company behind it, Connect UK Auctions, is to hold the inaugural sale on Friday featuring 12 properties, although it expects to have more to sell at the next auction a month later.Fronted by BBC and Channel 4 presenter Adam Partridge of ‘Flog It!’ fame, the monthly auctions will feature direct interaction between him and bidders as each lot goes through.Taking a riskA spokesperson for Connect has told The Negotiator that the company is aware of the risk it’s taking with the innovation and that no one ‘has dared do it’ until now.Available initially via a webpage and streamed live, Connect reveals that it is also preparing a smartphone app through which people can bid online during the auctions.Called Connect Realtime, the events will be in addition to the company’s traditional auctions and Connect will pre-register and vet bidders beforehand.“Until now online auctions have just been streamed video of existing traditional auctions to enable telephone bids, whereas during our Connect Realtime sales they will be part of an interactive audience of bidders who will be spoken to directly by Adam,” a company spokesperson says.“We believe the potential is global and huge – the market is no longer restricted by who is in the auction room; expect a shift in the industry, imminently.”After representations from several auction houses who claim online auctions such as this have been around for some time, please note that it is the TV-style direct-to-camera element of the auctions that Connect Auctions believes has not been attempted before. Connect UK auctions Adam Partridge online auctions February 6, 2020Nigel Lewis2 commentsAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 6th February 2020 at 11:04 amAs has been commented recently the speed of technology is not linear but doubles year on year, which means processes and ways of doing things will leapfrog forwards. With new technology not only can old legacy led systems be made more efficient, completely new ways of doing things can replace these systems.Yes, there will be false starts and bumps on the way, but auctions for instance, the idea of travelling to city centres to stand in front of a man with a gavel, if you are 25 years old and want to buy at a property auction you would frown on this antiquated system.Much better having viewed the property you want to secure (though now companies can do this for you) you can make all the necessary checks you need and with the legal pack delve into the legals, before sitting in your chair and clicking on your mobile to secure the property.Whilst property auction is not for every buyer, due to their circumstance, why is there a need to have a room full of people, after all the digital blueprint of buying online with eBay has been established for a very long time.As Connect Realtime say ‘the market is no longer restricted by who is in the auction room; expect a shift in the industry, imminently.”Underpinning change are big levers like 5G, and the massive potential that is going to be unleashed when it rolls out fully, to power the even quicker new layer of technologies which have not yet even come into being.I predict within five years, a re-imagined real estate landscape built around fulfilling the customer experience, where speed, convenience and minimal barriers are the norm.Log in to ReplyPaul Fosh, Paul Fosh Auctions Paul Fosh Auctions 6th February 2020 at 10:41 amWorld first? No one has dared do it? Hardly.Most ballroom sales are now streamed live but not just for people to watch or make telephone bids. Like us, a large number of ballroom auction sales allow interaction with online bidding during the sale so this is hardly a new offering and certainly not a world first.We have a catalogue of 74 properties being offered tonight and we are expecting a number of “interactive online bidders”.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Leasehold reforms will take years to become reality, warns legal expert

first_imgThe Government’s confusing new leasehold reform plans could take years to become law, according to one property expert.Far from benefitting millions of leaseholders who had expected the law to be changed almost overnight, Cavendish Legal Group’s Jonathan Frankel, head of its specialist leasehold enfranchisement division, says they’ve been given false hope by the leasehold reform promises as many barriers still remain.Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick announced this week that up to 4.5 million leaseholders would be given the right to extend their lease by up to 990 years at zero ground rent.This means they won’t have to pay any ground rent to the freeholder, which could save them tens of thousands of pounds. A cap will be introduced on ground rent payable when a leaseholder chooses to either extend their lease or become the freeholder, while Jenrick also announced that a new online calculator would make it simpler for leaseholders to find out how much it will cost to buy their freehold or extend their lease.Biggest hurdlesHowever, Frankel says that one of the biggest hurdles for new owners remains, as new leaseholders will still have to wait two years before they can start the process of obtaining their statutory lease extension. “This is one of the key elements of the much-needed reforms,” he says.“So, far from benefitting the many leaseholders who have been waiting for these reforms, it has only served to create confusion.”Frankel is calling for more detail and a timetable for implementation of the leasehold reform plans. He adds: “The clock is ticking as the pressing point remains – the shorter the lease gets; the more costly it will be to extend.”Under current rules, leaseholders of flats can extend their lease at a zero ‘peppercorn’ ground rent, but usually only for 90 years.Cavendish Legal Group’ Jonathan Franke Leasehold Reform January 9, 2021Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 11th January 2021 at 1:23 pmThere has always been a two year period, if a leaseholder fails to want to engage with a vendor of a leasehold property, but who is to say that many may now be more open as they see the way that the direction of travel now is. Also, as pressure grows, no doubt there may be more governmental ‘tinkering’ with the present, woefully inadequate system.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
