Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img This year has seen a massive rally in UK tech stocks, with some mirroring the big gains seen in the US market.I’m not keen on paying over the odds for my shares, so I’ve been hunting for bargain UK tech stocks that still look cheap enough to offer the potential for big gains. I’ve unearthed three tech stocks I want to own.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…Too cheap to ignore?Shares in price comparison website Moneysupermarket.com Group (LSE: MONY) have lagged the market this year, due to a pandemic-related slowdown in sales. However, although earnings are expected to slump in 2020, analysts expect a strong recovery in 2021.Is that realistic? I think so. The main areas where Moneysupermarket has suffered this year have been travel insurance and personal finance. No one has been travelling outside the UK and banks have been cutting bank on new loans, due to concerns about the economy.I expect both of these headwinds to ease by next summer. Meanwhile, the firm is targeting growth opportunities such as mortgage lending and providing its services to commercial partners, such as banks.Looking ahead, MONY shares trade on around 16 times 2021 forecast earnings, with a dividend yield of 4.6%. Moneysupermarket has no debt and delivers profits margins of about 30%. I think this UK tech stock is too cheap and I’ve been buying it for my portfolio.I’d back owner managementIT services group FDM Holdings (LSE: FDM) provides business and technical experts to work on client sites. These are called ‘Mounties’ by the firm. To give you an idea of scale, the company had 3,721 Mounties placed with clients at the end of September.One of the things I like about this business is it’s run by owner management. CEO Rod Flavell and chief operating office Sheila Flavell own around 15% of the business between them. That gives them a collective stake worth around £170m. I reckon they should be motivated to deliver strong shareholder returns.FDM is a profitable business too. The group’s operating profit margin has averaged more than 18% in recent years and cash generation is good. Although last year’s dividend was cut, analysts expect a payout of 34p per share this year, giving a useful 3.3% yield.Broker forecasts suggest a return to earnings growth in 2021. I’m happy to keep holding and buying FDM shares.The next UK tech stock I’ll buy?The final company I want to look at is FTSE 100 accounting software group Sage (LSE: SGE). It disappointed investors recently when it warned profits could dip in 2021.Sage’s share price has fallen more than 15% over the last month. That’s left the shares trading at a level last seen when the stock market crashed in March.I think this negative sentiment has gone too far. Sage is continuing to make good progress converting customers to its cloud-based subscription services. This is limiting growth today. But, in future years, I expect the firm’s recurring revenue to support reliable, growing profits.The company is also increasing its spending on new products and services. For a tech business, I generally see that as a good thing. Anyone who doesn’t innovate gets left behind.Sage has a long track record of high profit margins and strong shareholder returns. I’m hoping to use the current lull to add some Sage stock to spice up my portfolio. 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.

Art on Palm

first_imgtop box 6 Art on Palm Story and Video By MONICA TERADA Published on Monday, October 19, 2015 | 11:38 am Business News Saturday morning in Wildwood Park, under a canopy of ancient oaks, forty-two artists came together to exhibit and sell their work. There was a variety of medium including a lamp made out of cooper and brass with hawk feet for legs. Alongside this was another lamp with octopus tentacles.These distinctive lamps were the work of artist Evan Chambers. Chambers is from Pasadena and his work can be found at the Gold Bug in Old Town Pasadena. He is just one of many local artists at the Art on Palm Show.“Art on Palm is an art show that began in a friend’s backyard,” said Catherine Cowles, one of the organizers for the event. “We gathered buddies together, put on a show and people came!” she added enthusiastically.The show featured works of ceramics, collage, glass, jewelry, woodworking, textiles and the Bull Fish blues band. All in a “casual, calm setting,” according to artist Ovie Cowles, whose exhibition was the Leaf Motif. Ovie Cowles and Catherine Cowles are a husband and wife team that created Leaf Motif. They offer a range of home decor products, including original multi-leaf collages, leaf sculptures, a line of illuminations, and many more intriguing items.According to Cowles, Art on Palm showcases “very distinctive, hand-crafted art.” Such is the case for the work of artist, Belinda del Pesco. Pesco’s work featured a selection of watercolor and printmaking, including the watercolor piece, “Kitchen Sunset.” Aside from painting, Pesco also has a YouTube channel with tips and lessons on painting and printmaking: https://www.youtube.com/user/bdelpesco“Today it’s very hard for artists to make substantial income doing retail shows,” said Cowles. “They have to be very careful that they go to an audience that is qualified and appreciative. We find that the people who come to Art on Palm are.”The people who come to Art on Palm come not only for the distinctive artwork, but also for the “beautiful, magnificent sight,” said Cowles. It’s more than an art show, it’s a chance to appreciate beauty.An ancient oak road and homes that were renovated by architect Henry Green surround the Art on Palm show. “It is just a spectacular, soothing, restorative location,” said Cowles. “It’s a terrific show and we look forward to inviting everyone to come into the event.”The show occurs twice a year and for more information you can visit www.artonpalm.com.

Required fields are marked * For the first time ever, the median price of homes sold in Pasadena has exceeded $1 million, according to 2020/2021 property tax data provided to the city by a consultant and published last week.Sale prices have risen as the number of sales declined significantly due to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.The smaller inventory and lower interest rates from January through September drove the median sale price of a detached single-family residential home in Pasadena up to $1,050,000, a $93,000 (9.7 percent) increase in median sale price from 2019.“It doesn’t surprise me, because supply continues to be limited relative to demand,” said Pasadena realtor Bill Podley of deasy penner podley. And that will continue “until more homeowners decide to sell or relocate,” Podley said.“I’m really addressing this more from the more senior population because we’re all aware — and my understanding is this is true over much of the United States — that people just aren’t selling like they used to,” Podley said.“It used to be people move about every seven years, and now it’s closer to every 20,” he said.According to the California Association of Realtors, all major regions declined in the number of sales with Southern California dropping the most at -12.2 percent, while the Central Valley had the smallest decline at -1.5 percent.This chart, published by the city, shows the rise in the median price of single-family homes in Pasadena over recent years.Median prices in the Central Valley and in Southern California increased by 7.4 percent and 3.3 percent, respectively, based on pent up demand. Other areas reflected similar patterns.In October, Pasadena Now reported significant jumps in home prices outpacing price increases in the county in three of the city’s six zip codes. At that time, only two of the city’s six area codes had median home prices below $1 million, 91103, which includes Northwest Pasadena, and 91101.The city’s taxable property value increased by 6 percent with a total assessed value increase of approximately $2 billion.According to a property tax summary provided by city consultants HdL Coren & Cone, the largest assessed value increases were caused by a combination of recent sales and new developments.The largest increase occurred on a commercial parcel at 135 N. Los Robles Ave., which was reassessed after its 2018 purchase from the Successor Agency; resulting in an increase of $73.4 million.The 2018 sale of two parcels at 251 and 225 S. Lake Ave., to CVFl-S Lake Avenue LP, added $96.7 million in value.New improvements on a multifamily residential parcel owned by GDCV Pasadena 201 LLC (75 W. Walnut St.) added $50.4 million in value.“Prices have continued to rise in response to lower inventory and lower interest rates,” according to the summary provided by a newsletter produced by HDL Companies, which provides auditing, operations, and revenue solutions for more than 500 government agencies in 11 states.

Hivecell takes computer power to the next level with stackable units at edge sites that collect the data generated from Internet-connected devices and process it on-site, only sending relevant data back to the cloud. “There is a massive need for the ability to execute machine learning at the edge, especially under rugged conditions where it may be difficult to connect to central data centers or where comms costs are prohibitive,” said Fred Gedling VP of Corporate Development at RapidMiner. “Whether on a factory floor, at the point of sale, underground or at sea, intelligence at the true edge becomes real. By partnering with Hivecell, our users will now be able to use models built with the RapidMiner platform to enable AI-optimized decision-making wherever needed.” With this integration, the RapidMiner platform can be easily integrated into the Hivecell architecture, allowing Hivecell users to pool together data and build models centrally. These RapidMiner models are then pushed back out to the units at the edge for swift implementation and execution, guiding effective device- and location-specific decision making. Hivecell and RapidMiner together create a true Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) edge solution. “Hivecell allows data scientists to store and crunch data on-premise and deploy that data instantly, with an ultimate goal of pushing computing to the true edge, which is wherever our users happen to be,” said Jeffrey Ricker, co-founder and CEO of Hivecell. “We’re excited to partner with RapidMiner so that our users can also run and execute machine learning models on-site, allowing them to make predictions and execute solutions swiftly without the need of a large technical team.” For businesses in environmentally intensive industries, AIoT solutions offer unique benefits to address the challenges of operating in such conditions:Lower operating costs: AIoT enables smarter, proactive repair of field and production equipment at lower risk with less production downtime.Reduced risk: Using AIoT to improve product quality and production processes reduces the risk of product failure and health, safety and environmental liabilities.Better customer experience: Greater reliability of products and service networks created by AIoT makes for a better customer experience and happier, more loyal customers.Increased revenue: Improving product design by using AIoT to understand usage, predict and prevent problems drives greater demand from the market and higher revenues.

The Bench of Justice S. Vaidyanathan was hearing the case of a student (petitioner) who studied in a Government Higher Secondary School and even after scoring more marks in NEET, she couldn’t get a seat in Government Medical College. Further, she got a seat in a private college, however, since she had to pay more fees, she did not accept the seat allotted to her in a Private College Thereafter, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu made a commitment that the fees would be borne by the Government for the meritorious students, who could not pay the fees in private colleges. However, this offer was made after the petitioner opted out and refused to accept the seat in private college. To this, the Court said, “The gesture shown by the Chief Minister in this regard may be considered for the student, like the petitioner herein, depending upon the availability of the seats and marks scored by the student and taking into account the surrender of seats in All India Quota, for admission in MBBS/BDS Admission 2020-2021.” The Court further said, “The Chief Minister’s decision appears that this State produces more meritorious Doctors to serve the public and concentrate in treating the patients than earning. If a person spends more money for an MBBS seat and thereafter for higher education, he/she will try to concentrate on earning and not on service. Hence, the Chief Minister’s offer must be appreciated.” Lastly, the Court directed the respondents to keep one seat of MBBS/BDS vacant. The matter has been posted along with Miscellaneous Petition for further hearing on 07.01.2021. In related news, the Madras High Court on Friday (20th November) expressed hope that Political Parties, Leaders, Cinema Stars, Industrialist, Cricketers and Wealthy People would adopt Medical College Students, who have been admitted in Government Colleges.
