I believe as the UK economy comes out of lockdown, we’ll see a stock market recovery as well. As such, I’m looking for dirt-cheap UK shares to buy to capitalise on this recovery. Of course, this is just my opinion, and there’s no guarantee we’ll see either an economic or a stock market recovery over the next few weeks and months. Dirt-cheap UK sharesOne sector where I believe there’s plenty of value to be found right now is the UK homebuilding sector. With that in mind, I’d buy housebuilders Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV), Persimmon (LSE: PSN) and Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) for my portfolio to capitalise on the stock market recovery.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…The UK housing market is structurally undersupplied. This is driving up home prices, and it’s unlikely to change anytime soon. Despite government policies to encourage homebuilding, strict planning regulations and population growth are two headwinds preventing builders from meeting rising demand. As well as these factors, government initiatives such as the Help to Buy scheme and low-interest rates have helped push prices higher. However, past performance should never be used as a guide to future potential. So, while home prices have risen almost continually for the past few decades, there’s no guarantee this trend will continue indefinitely. Despite the factors outlined above, a sudden financial crisis or boom in house construction could send the market lower. Stock market recovery I think Barratt, Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey are all well-placed to navigate these risks. All three also concentrate on the lower end of the housing market where demand is greatest.For example, in 2020, Taylor’s average selling price was £288k, Persimmon’s was £230k and Barratt’s was £284k. This end of the market has been much more resilient throughout the economic cycle in the past than higher-end properties. That said, this hasn’t been the case over the past 12 months. Research shows properties costing more than £1m outperformed the rest of the market in 2020. This illustrates both the risks and opportunities these businesses face.  Despite these challenges, government forecasts suggest the UK will need at least 300,000 new homes every year. As some of the largest housebuilders in the country, I think Barratt, Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey will benefit from this demand. Also, they’ve all shown a willingness to distribute large amounts of cash to investors when times are good. City analysts have pencilled in dividend yields of 3.7%, 9% and 5% respectively in 2021. These projections look attractive compared to the current interest rate environment.Nevertheless, they’re only projections at this point. There’s no guarantee any of the three companies will meet these targets. If the economy deteriorates further, they may even skip dividend payments altogether.Overall, despite the risks they face, I’d buy shares in Barratt, Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey as a way to capitalise on a potential stock market recovery over the next few months.last_img read more

Grapple truck pursues illegal dumping

first_img Local News Grapple truck pursues illegal dumping Gardner says truck will greatly accelerate clean-ups 1 of 7 The Ector County Environmental Enforcement Department just got a boost with the delivery of a big $266,938 Peterbilt grapple truck that’ll enable the removal of a lot more of the heavier trash like couches and mattresses.Precinct 1 Commissioner Mike Gardner, whose western jurisdiction has been particularly plagued by rampant illegal dumping, says remediation crewmen Gilbert Maltos and John Navarro can now tackle the long-problematic sites where the bulky items have piled up.The Ector County Environmental Enforcement Department recently purchased a $266,938 Peterbilt grapple truck that will aid in the removal of larger and heavier discarded trash like couches and mattresses. The heavy duty truck is also capable of carrying roll-off bins, allowing the grappler to haul ten times as much as the previous trucks in service according to Precinct 1 Commissioner Mike Gardner. (Eli Hartman|Odessa American)Noting that the truck was bought from Rush Truck Center with money from the 1.25-cent sales tax OK’d by voters in November 2018, Gardner said, “We will also be able to move around the 10 Dumpsters that were paid for by fines because this truck can lift up to 7,800 pounds.“It will keep the men from handling the materials and they will make fewer trips to the Republic Services Charter Landfill on the south side of I-20 near Moss Avenue,” Gardner said. “It’ll hold 10 times as much as the truck they’ve been using. We pay $32 a ton at the landfill. It would cost somebody $150 to dump a mattress, but we can do it in-house for $15 or $20. It’s a tremendous piece of equipment. We have left a lot of stuff in place that we can now move.”The truck’s grapple and other special equipment were installed by the Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Heil Truck Equipment Group.Gardner has scheduled a Precinct 1 town hall meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. July 8 at the sheriff’s sub-station at Kellus Turner Park at 2230 Sycamore Dr.During budget hearings that will start in early August, the commissioner said, he hopes to secure the financing for two more regular trucks, 30-40 roll-off bins and two or three more remediation workers.The Ector County Environmental Enforcement Department recently purchased a $266,938 Peterbilt grapple truck that will aid in the removal of larger and heavier discarded trash like couches and mattresses.

(Eli Hartman|Odessa American)The clean-up campaign is also in progress in Precinct 2, including the Gardendale area, and Precinct 4’s south county jurisdiction.Environmental Enforcement Director Rickey George said the average couch weighs 200 pounds and the grapple truck can lift four couches at a time. “There are so many illegal dumping sites that have been there for years,” George said.“Now we have the equipment to get in there and do clean-ups at the sites where we didn’t catch the bad guys. With this truck, the remediation guys can do in about two minutes what it had been taking them an hour to do. These sites attract more trash if they’re not cleaned up. They also attract mice, rats and snakes, so there is lots of potential to get hurt if guys go in there with their hands.” By Odessa American – May 25, 2021 The Ector County Environmental Enforcement recently purchased a $266,938 Peterbilt grapple truck that will aid in the removal of larger and heavier discarded trash like couches and mattresses.
