3 UK shares I’d buy now that they’re cheap again

Many UK shares have been drifting steadily lower since 5 June, when the FTSE 100 hit a post-crash high of 6,484. The index is now nearly 9% lower, at around 5,900.

I’d back the boss at this firm

The Morgan Sindall (LSE: MGNS) share price has fallen by more than 40% from its February peak. Painful stuff. But, as a shareholder in this FTSE 250 construction group, I expect this UK share to make a gradual recovery over the next couple of years.

The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is likely to make intense political polarization in the US even more severe.

Ginsburg’s death opened up a vacancy on the Supreme Court that President Trump said he will fill as quickly as possible. But a new national survey from Insider found that most respondents disagree with the plan to fill the seat as soon as possible. You can get

The Tyranny of Merit: What’s Become of the Common Good?,by Michael J.Sandel

“I’ve been lucky enough to read an advance copy of
Michael Sandel
’s The Tyranny of Merit: What’s Become of the Common Good? I’m still thinking about his clear argument for dismantling the false and privileged underpinnings of a meritocratic philosophy. The case that Sandel makes for subverting inequality by shaping our society based on fairness and the principles of justice is not only compelling but urgent.”

Cape Businesses Say They’re Running Out Of Cash: Survey

BARNSTABLE, MA — Nearly 36 percent of Cape Cod businesses only have enough money to survive for six months or less, according to survey results from the Cape Cod Commission.

The Cape Cod Commission, an economic development agency for Barnstable County, surveyed about 400 businesses across the region affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The survey analyzed revenue losses, which industries have been hardest hit and layoffs across the region.

Although the commission has yet to release the full results of the survey, Jennifer Clinton, the commission’s community development planner, confirmed that 35.7 percent of survey respondents only have enough money to operate for another six months or less. Another 42.2 percent said they can survive more than six months, and another 22.1 percent were unsure.

“Unfortunately there are a lot of unknowns around what will happen after this summer, but we’re continuing to gather information on impacts to employment and

Small businesses say they’re fed up with high credit card transaction fees

KITCHENER —
Paying with plastic has become the preferred method of payment during the pandemic.

But many small businesses are hoping their customers choose debit – or even cash – over credits cards when it comes time to check out.

At Lady Glaze Doughnuts in Kitchener’s Belmont Village, there’s a sign in the window that says debit and cash are the preferred methods of payment.

The problem is the high fees that come with credit card transactions.

“We have to make every cent count, especially in a pandemic,” says store co-founder Mark Brown.

More small businesses, especially those with lower price points, are trying to move away from credit cards.

“Paying upwards of 2% per transaction just eats away at the bottom line,” says Brown. “If you look at the average profit margins for restaurants in Canada, you’re making between 4% and 5% on average. So 2% is a huge

3 Stocks to Buy Now That They’re Cheap Again

The last three trading days have been painful for most investors. More than 800 U.S. exchange-listed stocks have fallen by at least 10% over the past week, but Wall Street’s correction could be your opportunity.

Among the many stocks that have taken double-digit percentage tumbles over the past week, Twilio (NYSE:TWLO)Wingstop (NASDAQ:WING), and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) are ones that I expect will recover quickly. Here’s why I’m bullish on those three briefly out-of-favor investments.

Wearing face masks and social distancing have become a new normal for many Americans, as more than half of U.S. states have instituted mask mandates and other safety guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

As the U.S. continues its effort in fighting Covid-19, non-medical masks have also become an opportunity for self-expression. One way to showcase your personality and style is through a custom face mask. While there are a number of sites offering stylish, pre-designed face coverings, the popular online printing company Vistaprint, is now offering an easy way to customize your face masks and even order them in bulk (say, if you want to order masks for your restaurant or small business).
