The fast food business has been a big market in recent years and it shows no sign of slowing down. Everyone is looking for quick, alternative options when it comes to food. They are not always healthy and nutritional choices out there but to each their own.Greggs (LSE:GRG) is a major player in this realm and is the largest bakery chain in the UK. The convenience food chain specialises in savoury products such as bakes, sausage rolls, and sandwiches. With approximately 2,000 outlets across the country, Greggs’ presence on the high street is a prominent one.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…In the face of the coronavirus there has been a drop off in share price. The last month alone has seen a 40% decrease. CEO Roger Whiteside has released a statement addressing the impact of the virus on the business and measures moving forward. A primary focus has been on hygiene and handwashing but the closure of seating areas was also announced. PerformanceAlthough the past month has been tough for all, and the short-term forecast may not be the most attractive, I believe there is an opportunity.Results posted for the full year earlier this month showed great promise. Greggs made record profits in 2019, the year it launched the controversial but popular vegan sausage roll. It did say that storms and flooding had slowed sales since the turn of this year. Flooding caused the temporary closure of its bakery and distribution centre in South Wales, as well as 40 Welsh stores. Despite these natural causes, sales at stores open more than a year were up 7.5% in the nine weeks to February 2020.This update was part of the year-end results, which told of a 27% rise in pre-tax profits. Like-for-like sales grew by a record 9.2%. Last year, it paid out £35.5m to shareholders via a special dividend. A very encouraging takeaway. Crunching the numbersRevenue and profit has increased year on year in the last three years, which is a sign of a business continuing to grow and maintain customer confidence. Dividend per share has also increased in the previous year and this year. Share price in the previous year, prior to the markets crashing, saw an increase of nearly 30%. The current price-to-earnings ratio sits at just over 16, which is healthy.It is also worth noting that Greggs possesses good leadership in my opinion. Roger Whiteside has documented success in the food-to-go sector. Previous experience includes stints at Marks & Spencer and Ocado. The previous seven years at Greggs have also been fruitful.What I would do nowGreggs’ progress has been somewhat halted by current events, but I do believe that shares picked up at the current price are a bargain.The positive year-end results, strong management, and brave product innovation are my key takeaways. These aspects excite me from an investment perspective. I would note that there will be short-term pain with the coronavirus currently hampering businesses everywhere but this falls into my buy-and-hold category of investments.

WhatsApp Facebook Facebook Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – January 27, 2021 Pinterest Local NewsBusinessPeopleLifestyleUS News If you have high-interest consumer debt, getting control of your money in the new year might sound overwhelming. Most Americans say the COVID-19 outbreak has caused financial stress, according to a survey released in October by the National Endowment for Financial Education, with 30% listing debt as their top stressor. Despite the pandemic, you can still pay down your debt with the right plan. Here’s how. CONFRONT YOUR DEBT The first step is simple, but it can be the hardest: You have to face the problem. Angela Moore, a Miami-based certified financial planner and founder of Modern Money Advisor, which offers virtual advising and education for consumers, says it’s common for her clients to know they’re in debt but not know how much. She recommends compiling your debt onto one document or spreadsheet, listing all balances, minimum payments and interest rates. Though the task is daunting, most of her clients feel relief once it’s finished. “Debt is an emotional burden,” she says, “but a lot of times that overwhelm goes away once you have clarity.” COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR LENDERS After listing your debt, it’s time to get on the phone with your creditors. Ask for a temporarily lowered interest rate, reduced monthly payment or waived late fees. Make sure to explain how the pandemic has influenced your finances. Most creditors will be willing to work with you, says Dan Herron, a California-based CFP at Elemental Wealth Advisors. “It doesn’t hurt to say, ‘I’m still trying to do the right thing, I’m still trying to make payments. Where can we meet in the middle?’” he says. Any break you get, take that money and apply it to your debt. If you need help negotiating, contact a credit counselor at a reputable nonprofit organization, like the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. Counselors have relationships with creditors and can negotiate on your behalf. Services are typically free for those experiencing financial difficulties due to COVID-19. CONSIDER CONSOLIDATING If you have multiple types of debt, such as loans, credit cards and medical bills, you may want to take out an unsecured personal loan to consolidate it into one monthly payment. A consolidation loan is a good idea only if you can qualify for a lower interest rate than those on your current debts. Some lenders have tightened their approval standards in the pandemic, but borrowers with good to excellent credit (690 FICO or higher) should have a good shot. Look for a lender that specializes in debt consolidation and offers perks like direct payments to creditors or rate discounts for automated payments. If you have credit card debt, you could apply for a balance transfer card. Though these cards typically charge a 3% to 5% fee, they offer an introductory 0% interest period, so all payments go toward your principal, which helps you pay off debt faster. You’ll likely need good credit to qualify. Charles Ho, a California-based CFP and founder of Legacy Builders Financial, urges caution for some consumers. Though consolidation tools can save money, they also free up your credit cards for more spending. “It might make mathematical sense to consolidate your loans, but the math is meaningless if we don’t account for our behavior and end up almost doubling our debt,” he says. PICK A STRATEGY AND STICK TO IT If you choose not to consolidate, there are two common methods for approaching debt payoff: the snowball or avalanche. With the snowball method, you pay off your smallest debt first, while making minimum payments on the others, then move to the second smallest and so on. The avalanche method uses the same strategy, but you start with the debt that has the highest interest rate. According to Herron, the avalanche method may get you to the finish line faster since the money you save on interest can be applied to other debts, but it’s more important to pick the method that motivates you the most. BREAK THE CYCLE As you make your way out of debt, start to automate your finances. Moore has her clients set up automatic bill payments and savings contributions, so the money is put aside without having to think about it. If finances are tight in the pandemic, build toward a $500 emergency fund. She also advises clients to use a separate account for nonessential spending — 30% of your post-tax income is a good target to hit in this account. Clients can use the money to buy whatever they want, but once it’s at $0, “that’s it,” she says. “By automating and creating systems, it helps you stick to your financial strategy and take the emotional aspect out of it. That’s the key.” —————————————————————— This article was provided to The Associated Press by the personal finance website NerdWallet. Jackie Veling is a writer at NerdWallet.

Erik Voake/Getty Images(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) — Daredevil Vicki Golden successfully pulled off a fiery motocross feat that even one of the most famed motorcycle stuntmen never completed.The four-time X-Games gold medalist motocross rider drove through 13 gates of fire and broke through the inferno of wooden boards at over 30 mph. “This was such an iconic record to go after,” Golden told Good Morning America on Monday. “It’s not something you hear about every day, everyone always wants to jump as far as they can possibly go and this was just something that just felt so good that it was inspired by Evel Knievel himself that I just had to go after it.”Evel Knievel was the pioneer of motorcycle daredevil stunts and never made it through 13 walls, making Golden the first stuntwoman to pull off the feat.Golden said her initial focus was “man I hope I don’t catch on fire” followed by getting through each board. “It sounds easy to count to 13 but not when you’re doing all that,” she explained. “I totally lost track of what I was doing.”Golden’s mom was in attendance at San Bernardino International Airport and watched as her daughter attempted the high temperature stunt. “She’s been there for all my struggles and maybe one or two of the celebrations so for her to be there for this [was] special,” Golden said. Freestyle motocross athlete Axell Hodges was also set to attempt a stunt where he would soar 200 feet over 25 semi-trucks, but he missed the landing at practice days before the event and suffered serious ankle injuries. Hodges was still there Sunday to support his friend Golden. “I’m bummed out for sure but there will be more to come,” he said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Greg Abbott asked Texans to remember the researchers in their thoughts.“Our hearts ache today for those who died in this tragic accident,” he said in a statement.The Texas Department of Public Safety, the Federal Aviation Administration and the Texas Game Wardens are investigating the crash.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
