Since I covered BMBL on 12 February – the day after its Initial Public Offering (IPO) – its share price has fallen from around $70 to $47. That represents a decline of more than 30%.Has this share price weakness created a buying opportunity for me? Let’s take a look at the investment case for this online dating app operator.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…Bumble: Q1 resultsBumble’s first-quarter 2021 results, posted on 5 May, showed the company is still growing at a healthy rate. For the quarter, revenue came in at $170.7m, up 43% year-on-year and above the consensus forecast of $164.6m.Meanwhile, total paying users increased 30% year-on-year to 2.8m. Total average revenue per paying user (ARPPU) was $19.99, compared to $17.73 in Q1 2020. Encouragingly, Bumble generated net earnings of $323.4m, compared to a net loss of $88.4 in Q1 2020.On the back of these results, the company raised its full-year guidance. It now expects full-year revenue of between $724m and $734m.It seems the market wasn’t impressed with these results, as Bumble’s share price fell sharply on the day after they were released. The main reason for the share price fall was that some investors thought the company’s guidance was quite cautious.Bumble stock: the bull caseLooking beyond the company’s growth, there are a number of things I like about Bumble stock. One is that the company is led by founder Whitney Wolfe Herd, who launched the Bumble app in 2014. Quite often, founder-led companies turn out to be good long-term investments.Another thing that stands out to me is that there’s been some bullish insider buying recently. Regulatory filings show that on 26 May, Bumble board member Amy Griffin spent approximately $5m on stock. Griffin is the managing partner of G9 Ventures, an early-stage fund that supports small companies. Clearly, she thinks the share price is going higher.Bumble’s valuation also looks more appealing now. When I covered the stock in February, it was sporting a forward-looking price-to-sales ratio of around 18. Today, it’s price-to-sales ratio is about eight. That seems far more reasonable.Finally, Bumble’s short interest is relatively low at present. This is reassuring. It tells us that hedge funds aren’t making massive bets against the company.RisksI do have some concerns about Bumble stock however. One is in relation to the competition it faces. Currently, there are a number of other dating apps including Tinder, Match, and Hinge. In this industry, barriers to entry are quite low and users can be quite fickle.Another concern is that, recently, a number of brokers have lowered their price targets for the stock. On 13 May, there were downgrades from JP Morgan ($60 to $55), Jefferies ($82 to $65) and Evercore ISI ($64 to $53). This isn’t what I want to see in a prospective investment.Bumble stock: my move nowThere are definitely things to like about Bumble stock, in my view. However, weighing everything up, I don’t see it as a strong buy right now. All things considered, I think there are better growth stocks I could buy at the moment. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.last_img read more

Indiana Poultry Producers Donate 75 Tons of Food

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Poultry Producers Donate 75 Tons of Food Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 19, 2018 Facebook Twitter Indiana Poultry Producers Donate 75 Tons of Food SHARE SHARE Governor Eric Holcomb and ISPA Executive Vice President Paul BrennanMore than 75 tons, or 150,000 pounds, of poultry products were donated to families in need ahead of the holiday season, announced today by the Indiana State Poultry Association (ISPA). Governor Eric J. Holcomb and Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler recognized the generosity of these producers at the association’s 71st annual poultry donation.“Indiana’s poultry producers are remarkable,” Holcomb said. “Year after year, they provide thousands of meals for Hoosiers in need. I commend their goodwill and encourage others to follow their example this holiday season.”For decades, Indiana’s poultry producers have been working to address food insecurity in their communities by providing protein to food banks across the state. Some of the main products that were donated this year include eggs, chicken, duck and turkey.In fact, more than 600,000 eggs were donated by members of the association, according to Paul Brennan, ISPA Executive Vice President.“It was an honor to recognize these producers, who are leaders in the industry and community-oriented,” Kettler said. “They are important to our state’s social and economic well-being, and I applaud their generosity, as well as Paul’s leadership of the association.”The strength of Indiana’s poultry sector was also recognized during the ceremony, as one of the top poultry producing states in the nation. According to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service, Indiana ranks No. 1 in duck production, No. 2 in egg production and No. 3 in turkeys raised.Annually, the poultry sector contributes more than $9.5 billion to the state’s economy and accounts for more than 11,000 Hoosier jobs.“Indiana’s poultry industry is large and diverse, and it is no accident,” Brennan said. “Geographically we may be the smallest state west of the Appalachian mountains, but we are an agrarian powerhouse with cropland for soybeans and corn. Our family farmers excel at efficiently turning those crops into high quality protein eggs, turkey, duck and chicken.”Products displayed during the annual poultry donation were donated to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana.Visit for more information about ISPA.Source: Indiana State Department of Agriculture Previous articleUSDA Cancels Trade Aid to SmithfieldNext articleBayer Prepared to Provide Dicamba Training in Indiana Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

The comedians based their six scripted sketches on common actions and religious beliefs.Britt Luby, the coordinator of the Crossroads Lecture on Faith and Public Life, said talking across differences is important for religious people to realize what they have in common with each other.   A recent Pew Research Center analysis created a new typology for religious groups in America, categorizing adults into seven groups based on characteristics such as shared beliefs, how actively they practice their spiritual tradition and how much value they place on their religion. While factors such as political orientation, race and ethnicity were not used to group the participants, the results indicate that some groups have specific demographic profiles and political orientations, showing the connections between religion, politics and race and highlighting the conflict among and within religious groups in America.Censoring what is mentioned in public or trying to simply change jokes to fit current standards of what is appropriate are not permanent solutions to deciding what should be the foundation for humor, said SketchCo writer-actor Ben Fort. If people base their humor on the fact that individuals are inherently valuable, they will not have to change their comedy over time.The first sketch, titled “Pardon Me,” made fun of people who use social media to point out and correct errors in other people’s beliefs and who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge the validity in anyone else’s ideas.In another sketch, a man walked into a belief store to return some of the beliefs he received from his parents. The man ultimately left the store with the idea that one should treat others with love, recognizing that he would also have to love himself. Mark Schatzman, 59, said the belief store sketch was most striking to him because it made him reflect on which of his parents’ beliefs he was still carrying. Five of the sketches were performed live, one was on video. In the clip, a Syrian immigrant to the United States working as a Lyft driver narrated a passenger conversation. The driver reflected on the passenger’s lack of knowledge about the driver’s religion and culture based on racist and Islamophobic comments made by the passenger. In the question and answer session that followed the show, the members of SketchCo talked about how important it is to approach conversations about religious matters with a desire to learn, not with an attitude of aggression. First-year student Jessica Webba said the event showed her that she needed to question why she laughs at jokes because comedy can sometimes be hurtful. last_img read more

Regime continues to close newspapers, impose jail sentences on journalists

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemns the closure of three newspapers in the past few days and the imposition of a jail sentence on another journalist in the government’s continuing crackdown on the media. The Commission for Press Authorisation and Surveillance, the censorship arm of the ministry of culture and Islamic orientation, has suspended the business daily Asia and withdrawn the licences of the weeklies Sepidar and Parastoo, while Badrolsadat Mofidi, the secretary-general of the Association of Iranian Journalists, has been sentenced to six years in prison.Asia’s suspension was announced on 17 August by Mohammed Ali Ramin, deputy minister of culture and Islamic orientation, who said it was for “publishing images contrary to public virtues.” The case has been sent to the justice ministry for judicial investigation. In reality, the newspaper has been closed for criticising the government’s economic policies and the heavy involvement of the Revolutionary Guards in the economy. It is its third suspension since its launch in 2002.Several of Asia’s journalists have been jailed since its creation. When it was suspended in July 2003 at the behest of then Tehran prosecutor general Sayeed Mortazavi for “anti-government publicity” after publishing a photo of Maryam Radjavi of the banned People’s Mujahideen, editor Iraj Jamshidi was arrested and held for several months. The Tehran supreme court sentenced publisher Saghi Baghernia to six months in prison in August 2006 for “anti-government propaganda.” One of Asia’s reporters, Ali-Reza Ahmadi was arrested in July 2003 and was not released until the following January, after paying 1 billion rials (100,000 euros) in bail.The licences of Sepidar and Parastoo were withdrawn on the same grounds – “publishing images contrary to public virtues.” The latest issues of Sepidar, which is owned by the Tehran University militia and supports radical militia members, had included articles criticising President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s controversial vice-president, Esfandiar Rahim Mashai. Sepidar also published a cartoon of a son of former President Hashemi Rafsanjani who was allegedly involved in the payment of bribes by a Norwegian company. These two closures are the result of in-fighting within the regime.More than 20 newspapers have been suspended in Iran since President Ahmadinejad’s reelection in June 2009. Ramin, the deputy minister of culture and Islamic orientation, is keeping his promise to do everything possible to “liquidate” the press. The country has been purged of its journalists and newspapers on the grounds of preserving “public morality.”Reporters Without Borders is dismayed to learn that a Tehran revolutionary court sentenced Badrolsadat Mofidi to six years in prison followed by a five-year ban on working as a journalist. Arrested on 28 December 2009, she was held in Section 209 of Tehran’s Evin prison until released on 7 June after paying 100 million tomans (75,000 euros) in bail.The heavy jail sentence imposed on Mofidi and the closure of the Association of Iranian Journalists for the past year are major blows for press freedom and journalists in Iran.President Ahmadinejad and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader, are on the Reporters Without Borders list of Predators of Press Freedom.

The police grabbed him by the head, neck and arm, led him away and held him for several hours. They finally escorted him back to his home and told him he could not go out.The press freedom organisation stresses its support for Liu, who in 2004 was awarded the Reporters Without Borders – Fondation de France prize for defending freedom.“The behaviour of these police officers on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre shows that, 19 years later, the authorities continue to crack down on those who campaign peacefully for the rehabilitation of the victims of the events of 4 June 1989,” Reporters Without Borders said.Liu is a leading human rights figure. His writings include an essay condemning the frequent use of subversion charges – which are brought against many cyber-dissidents – as a “legal aberration.”Liu spent two years in prison after publicly defending the June 1989 pro-democracy movement. He was sentenced to another three years of reeducation through work in 1996 for questioning the Communist Party’s monopoly of party political activity.

Why Reverse Mortgages Keep Moving Forward

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post March 18, 2019 3,933 Views For many older homeowners, reverse mortgages are an easy way to tap into their home’s equity. Despite many misconceptions about reverse mortgages, they may not even be as risky as many believe, according to experts, as more and more homeowners take advantage of the product.An article from Bloomberg explores the recent movement to reverse mortgages. Despite the risk, such as taxes, insurance, maintenance, and utilities as well as a risk of foreclosure, reverse mortgages are still a viable equity alternative to selling and moving. Tightening rules after 2008, including requiring homeowners to show they can afford tax and insurance payments, has reduced the risks involved with reverse mortgages since then. However, some still note the risks involved“The profits are significant, the oversight is minimal, and greed could work to the disadvantage of seniors who should be protected by government programs and not targeted as prey,” said Dave Stevens, CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association on Bloomberg.DS News reported earlier that, according to LendingTree and data from the Federal Housing Authority’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program, HECMs originated in the 100 studied cities at an average rate of 7.1 loans per 1,000 homeowners over the age of 60 between 2012 and 2017. The top city, Virginia Beach, boasted a rate of 13.8 loans per 1,000 homeowners over the age of 60.Government-back loans as a whole have seen a resurgence. Kroll Bond Ratings Agency reported 63 percent increase in residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) issued in 2018 over 2017. The report indicated that if the U.S. GDP was to grow at the steady pace it has this year, until July 2019, the year could see “another robust issuance year in 2019.” However, factors such as higher interest rates, home price moderation, and widening spreads that have been experienced by the market in the last few weeks are likely headwinds that might pull down the performance of RMBS next year, the report revealed.”Given the potential downside risks, we aren’t forecasting issuance growth in 2019, but believe issuance will be comparable to 2018 levels,” KBRA stated in the outlook.

Basal terraces on melting ice shelves

first_imgOcean waters melt the margins of Antarctic and Greenland glaciers, and individual glaciers’ responses and the integrity of their ice shelves are expected to depend on the spatial distribution of melt. The bases of the ice shelves associated with Pine Island Glacier (West Antarctica) and Petermann Glacier (Greenland) have similar geometries, including kilometer-wide, hundreds-of-meter high channels oriented along and across the direction of ice flow. The channels are enhanced by, and constrain, oceanic melt. New meter-scale observations of basal topography reveal peculiar glaciated landscapes. Channel flanks are not smooth, but are instead stepped, with hundreds-of-meters-wide flat terraces separated by 5–50 m high walls. Melting is shown to be modulated by the geometry: constant across each terrace, changing from one terrace to the next, and greatly enhanced on the ~45° inclined walls. Melting is therefore fundamentally heterogeneous and likely associated with stratification in the ice-ocean boundary layer, challenging current models of ice shelf-ocean interactions.last_img read more
