The FTSE 100 is only marginally below where it was at the beginning of March, when the Covid-19 rout began in earnest. The speed at which markets have recovered is unprecedented, only matched by the speed at which they sold off. Few predicted such a swift recovery, myself included.Have stock markets recovered a bit too quickly?Sure, there seems to be some positive momentum around declining virus cases. The gradual lifting of lockdowns also gives us some comfort and hope. But I think there’s still a pretty big risk that a second wave comes along, which could potentially cause the stock market to crash again.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…Beyond the risk of a second wave, there are also economic and social effects to consider. The virus-induced lockdown has pushed millions into unemployment. Ominously, there are still millions of furloughed workers, of which a high number will not have jobs to go back to. It all points to a weaker global economy. This means company earnings will be affected too. With this in mind, it makes no sense for stock markets to be anywhere near where they were before the pandemic hit.I think that investors, as they are so prone to do, have overreacted. I think they overreacted to the virus back in March, pushing share prices down too low. And now they have overreacted the opposite way. In the short term, this is how markets react to uncertainty. It’s these kinds of extremes that give ordinary investors opportunities to beat the market in the long term, by allowing us to buy when prices are unusually low.How I’m investing nowIf the stock market does crash again, then there are a whole host of companies that I’d like to invest in. This includes companies that I missed out on buying during the depths of the last crash. At the top of that list are Mondi and Redrow, two quality yet undervalued stocks. In fact, I’m actually secretly hoping that prices do drop a bit. So I can buy more great companies at bargain prices.For now, as well as continuing to invest in attractively priced companies, we should also be identifying stocks that we would like to own in the future. That way, if the stock market does crash again, we will be in the perfect position to quickly take advantage of the situation.I believe prices will come down more at some point in the not too distant future, but I might be wrong. The stock market might not crash again. Share prices often bear no resemblance to reality. This is especially the case when central banks have injected so much extra liquidity into the financial system. It needs to go somewhere after all. This means we shouldn’t stop investing. But we need to be mindful of valuation, which is the key determinant of future performance. Is the stock market going to crash again?

Even though this has proven to be the case according to research conducted by CoreLogic, Deggendorf shares that many consumers are not aware of this fact.Each month, Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey conducts interviews with homeowners about their thoughts and attitudes for owning and renting a home as well as home and rental price changes and the economy.What was found from this research in the recent month was despite continuing growth in housing prices, the percentage of homeowners who believed they were underwater has remained pretty consistent. This contradicts research conducted by CoreLogic which states that with the increase in home prices, the amount of homeowners underwater has decreased. When Fannie Mae asked homeowners to compare their total mortgage debt to the value of their home in December 2014, it was found that 23 percent of these homeowners believed that they were underwater. Research conducted in 2015 revealed this perception of homeowners believing themselves to be underwater increased to 24 percent. This vastly contrasts the estimate from CoreLogic which states that only an estimated 7 percent of homeowners were in fact underwater.“The idea is not to take on unnecessary mortgage debt or unsustainable behavior, but to be better informed to make major life decisions,” states Deggendorf in his report. “What’s more, reducing the gap between perceived and actual home equity has the potential to remove a barrier that may have hindered housing market activity in general and could create a virtuous cycle that is sorely needed in today’s market.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Print This Post

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.

RACIAL INJUSTICE-KANSAS STATE TWEET Kansas State athletes, officials react to ‘offensive’ tweetMANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University is reviewing its options after a tweet by a student about the death of George Floyd prompted outrage from several students, including two football players who threatened to leave, the school’s president said Friday.On Thursday, one month since Floyd, a Black man, died after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on his neck for nearly eight minutes, student Jaden McNeil tweeted “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!” University President Richard Myers said Friday that “divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university.”McNeil describes himself as the founder of a conservative group called America First Students, which Kansas State says is not currently registered on the campus because of a lack of membership. The Manhattan Mercury reported that America First Students had already drawn the ire of students for past statements made by McNeil. Students released a video last week under the #BlackAtKState hashtag and asked for America First Students to be removed from campus. And a petition has circulated on Twitter asking that the group be banned from campus because it spreads “hateful rhetoric.”
