Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 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. The stock market has rebounded strongly since March and some popular FTSE 100 shares are up by more than 50%. Investors appear to be pricing in a return to normal but, for many companies, business as usual is still a distant hope.We don’t know exactly what will happen as the global lockdown ends, so I’ve been looking for FTSE 100 stocks that should do well in almost any circumstances. The company I’ve chosen is luxury fashion brand Burberry Group (LSE: BRBY).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 best FTSE 100 share?This FTSE 100 share has fallen by more than 25% so far this year, despite the recovery seen since late March. However, the latest update from Burberry suggests to me that the business should recover strongly from the pandemic.History tells us that spending by wealthy consumers tend to recover more quickly in a recession. Although 60% of Burberry’s stores were closed by the end of March, they’re now starting to reopen. Early indications are that customers are happy to return. According to management, sales in mainland China and South Korea are ahead of the same period last year, and still rising.We don’t know if the same trends will be seen when UK and US stores reopen. One potential concern is that stores in western markets get a lot of business from Chinese tourists. The surge in spending in China may mean these buyers are shopping at home as travel restrictions continue to bite.Therefore, although US and UK stores may take longer to recover, I’m confident this FTSE 100 share will do well as Burberry’s star designer Riccardo Tisci can keep delivering desireable collections.Rock-solid financesTwo months of lockdown has left many businesses in a dire financial position. They’ve only survived by taking on extra debt and relying heavily on government support schemes.Burberry isn’t in this position. The group went into the Covid-19 pandemic with £600m of net cash and an unused £300m credit facility. Sales have continued through the group’s website, providing limited income during this period. Despite this, Burberry said last week that it expects to write off £68m of unsold stock from its stores.This isn’t great news, but Burberry’s luxury positioning means that profit margins are high. Excluding various Covid-19-related impairment charges, Burberry reported an operating margin of 15% last year, with a return on capital employed of 22%. These numbers are well above average for a FTSE 100 share. In my opinion, they highlight the high quality of this business.Why I’d buy Burberry todayIt wasn’t long ago that Burberry was trading at more than £20 per share. As I write, the share price is just over £15, a level we first saw in August 2013. In the seven years since, the company has continued to develop its brand and increased its sales by 32%.If the firm can maintain its high profit margins, then I think we could see strong profit growth over the next five years. I don’t think this FTSE 100 share looks expensive for such a high quality business. I rate Burberry as a long-term buy at current levels.

According to a statement, “this extension provides an additional four months of housing security to homeowners, as they will not fear losing their homes as they work to recover financially from the adverse impacts of the pandemic. With this third extension, FHA has now provided more than nine months of foreclosure and eviction relief to FHA-insured homeowners.”HUD Secretary Ben Carson added, “President Trump is taking unprecedented measures to ensure American homeowners have the resources and support they need to get back to financial stability during the economic recovery. Because homeownership is the largest wealth builder for the majority of the nation’s families, providing relief from foreclosure and eviction to those who are in jeopardy of losing their hard-earned wealth, through no fault of their own, is a priority.”FHA’s Single Family foreclosure and eviction moratorium has been in place since March 18, and continues to apply to homeowners with FHA-insured Title II Single Family forward and Home Equity Conversion (reverse) mortgages.“For so many first-time homebuyers and others who relied on FHA insurance to achieve homeownership, this extension provides an additional measure of peace-of-mind and security, along with the fact that we do not require a lump sum payment at the end of any forbearance period,” said Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Dana Wade. “Right now, it’s important that those affected by COVID-19 focus on the immediate priorities of regaining their financial footing, without the additional stress of dealing with a foreclosure action.”HUD further outlines the precise nature of the extension on its website.Initial report:In order to “support households impacted by COVID-19,” Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac today announced an extension of the temporary moratoria on foreclosures and evictions until December 31. The moratoria, previously set to expire August 31, is effective immediately and applies to properties with single-family mortgages backed by the GSEs. The suspension of evictions applies only to homes owned by Fannie or Freddie and does not apply to tenants in homes that have not been foreclosed.”Fannie Mae, along with our lending and servicing partners, remains committed to supporting households who are experiencing job loss, a reduction in work hours or income, or other issues due to COVID-19,” said Malloy Evans, Senior Vice President and Single-Family Chief Credit Officer, Fannie Mae. “With this latest extension of the foreclosure and eviction moratorium, we can continue to help ensure distressed borrowers are able to remain in their homes during this national emergency. For homeowners who may be struggling with their mortgage or facing possible foreclosure, assistance options are available and can provide much-needed relief. We encourage you to reach out to your servicer as soon as possible to get help.”FHFA Director Mark Calabria added, “To help keep borrowers in their homes during the pandemic, FHFA is extending the Enterprises’ foreclosure and eviction moratoriums through the end of 2020. This protects more than 28 million homeowners with an enterprise-backed mortgage.”Guidelines for single-family mortgages:Homeowners who are adversely impacted by the COVID-19 national emergency may request mortgage assistance by contacting their mortgage servicerForeclosure-related activities (except as to vacant or abandoned properties) and evictions of occupants from real estate owned by Fannie Mae are suspended until December 31, 2020Homeowners impacted by COVID-19 are eligible for a forbearance plan to reduce or suspend their mortgage payments for up to 12 monthsServicers must report the status of the mortgage loan to the credit bureaus in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, including as amended by the CARES Act, for homeowners impacted by COVID-19Homeowners in a forbearance plan will not incur late feesAfter forbearance, a servicer must work with the borrower on a permanent plan to help maintain or reduce monthly payment amounts as necessary, including a loan modificationHomeowners can find out if they have an enterprise-owned mortgage by visiting KnowYourOptions.com/loanlookup.Fannie Mae said in a statement that it “has taken a number of actions to help homeowners and renters facing financial hardship due to COVID-19. In addition to suspending foreclosures and evictions affecting homeowners, Fannie Mae extended eviction protections to multifamily renters when the property owner received a forbearance, reminded homeowners they are never required to repay missed payments after a forbearance period all at once, shared tips to help homeowners avoid foreclosure fraud or scams, and announced a new COVID-19 payment deferral option to help homeowners who are ready to resume their monthly mortgage payments following a COVID-19 forbearance. These and other resources we make available are part of our ongoing Here to Help education effort, aimed at helping homeowners and renters impacted by COVID-19 understand the options available to them.”This is a breaking news story that might be updated as new information is available.

Volume XXXINumber 1Page 2 This is often the case with cucumbers. Sometimes they can tastedownright bitter. The good news is that this is preventable.Following a few simple tips can make sure you get thegreat-tasting cukes your labors deserve.The bitter taste that sometimes happens comes from one of threethings, or a combination of the three. Here are some tips to helpyou avoid all of them.The first is to harvest cucumbers before they reach fullmaturity. Leaving them on the vine too long, trying to get extralong fruit, can lead to disappointing taste. Cucumbers can growfast once they start producing, so be sure to plant only as muchas you can keep up with, to keep the harvest young.WaterMoisture control is the second tip for growing salad-qualitycucumbers. Irrigation or rain is critical, especially in the lastweek or so before the harvest. Failing to provide enough watercan definitely lead to poor-tasting cucumbers.The best way to water is with a drip system, irrigation tape orsoaker hoses. Provide about 1 inch to 1.5 inches of water perweek. Even more water near harvest time will help. Overheadwatering is OK. But it’s the least efficient method, and it maylead to foliar diseases.Third, manage the soil fertility. This means adjusting the pH(alkalinity or acidity) of the soil correctly and providingproper nutrition.Submitting a soil sample to your University of GeorgiaCooperative Extension county agent’s office is the most preciseway to do this. There’s no way to guess at the pH without thesoil test.The test will also provide details of what and how muchfertilizer to apply.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic is disappointed that some of his players are not putting in enough fight despite missing out on selection in his starting line-up.Fulham spent more than £100m during the summer signing 12 players, but have just one win from their opening 12 Premier League matches, and manager Jokanovic is likely to name the same starting eleven for two games in a row despite believing that competition for places is healthy.“This process is never finished, other players are going to have an opportunity to push hard and fight for the space in the team,” Jokanovic told Sky Sports.“I want to encourage my players to not wait for an opportunity. I want to encourage them to fight, to force the situation and show me they are my best choice. This is what I expect.Official: Tottenham sign Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon Andrew Smyth – August 8, 2019 Tottenham have sealed another transfer deadline day deal to sign the highly-rated Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham.“I want to make some competition between them and for them to be hurt when they are not in the starting XI. This is what I miss right now.“And we’re going to push harder and in this way be competitive in Premier League games too.”
