Buy Sunworks Stock for Its Strong Sales, Not As an EV Wager

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

California-based micro-cap solar company Sunworks (NASDAQ:SUNW) is a “hot” topic of discussion (no pun intended) in the lead-up to the November election. Some traders anticipate that former Vice President Joe Biden, if he ends up in the White House, would back the U.S. solar industry and that could give a big boost to SUNW stock.

And indeed, it is true that Biden signaled his intention to spend $2 trillion over a four-year period on clean-energy projects. Moreover, Biden seeks to eliminate the carbon pollution emitted by power plants by the year 2035.

There’s no way to know ahead of time which candidate will win the presidential election. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend taking a large position in SUNW stock based on the possibility that Biden would spend money on solar projects.

Instead, investors

Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom Buy $14.2 Million Montecito Home

New digs! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom purchased a stunning home in Montecito, California, after welcoming their daughter, Daisy, Us Weekly confirms.

The couple paid $14.2 million for an 8.9-acre compound that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Variety reported on Tuesday, October 20, that C. Robert Kidder, the former CEO of Chrysler and Duracell, previously owned the property, which he had originally listed for nearly $20 million in the spring of 2019.

The gated estate was built in 1934 and extensively renovated by architect Lutah Maria Riggs. It has a long, oak tree-lined driveway that leads to the main structure, a three-story Mediterranean-style villa with hardwood floors and neutral decor. The living room and adjoining den both have French doors leading to a patio, while the kitchen and breakfast room (which boast a large island, a butler’s pantry and designer stainless steel appliances) open to an al fresco dining

You can buy one of NorCal’s roadside institutions for $3M

Three hours’ drive north of San Francisco on Highway 101, flanking the majestic redwoods of Standish Hickey State Recreation Area and just a pine cone’s toss from a prime Eel River swimming hole, a roadside institution displays an arguably world-famous sign: “Never don’t stop.”

Obediently, I always do stop at the Peg House for delicious oysters, a juicy hamburger and some vegan coleslaw, which inexplicably tastes better than the regular coleslaw. Since the 1920s, people have been never not stopping here for all kinds of reasons: Barnstorming. Absurd knickknacks. Gas. Hippie festivals. Car shows. A lack of anywhere else to camp. Human kindness.

For those who visit the Peg House once, it inevitably becomes the sort of place where they wouldn’t dream of not visiting again. Now, the long-time owners are looking for someone who might consider not leaving.

Sunset Magazine named this roadside hamburger one of the best in the American West.

Lightyear, Ontario Teachers to Buy Allworth Financial for $750 Million

Text size


Allworth Financial will soon have a new owner. Lightyear Capital and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board have agreed to buy the registered-investment-advisor aggregator.

Financial terms weren’t announced. Allworth is selling for roughly $750 million, Barron’s has learned. It’s unclear how much each firm will own of the wealth manager. Ontario Teachers is investing more capital, but governance of Allworth will be split between the two firms, Barron’s has learned. Allworth senior management, which is staying, will remain significant shareholders, a statement said. The deal is expected to close later in the fourth quarter.

“We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish to date and believe Lightyear and Ontario Teachers’ will help accelerate our pursuit of becoming a national firm that brings unbiased, straightforward retirement planning guidance to thousands of families,” said Scott Hanson, an Allworth co-founder and senior partner, in the statement.

Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom Buy $14.2 Million Montecito House

It’s looking more and more as though Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry plan to make the low-key but shockingly expensive seaside town of Montecito, Calif., their primary residence. The English actor and his pop music superstar fiancée — she a Santa Barbara native — have paid $14.2 million for an A-lister-worthy estate with nearly nine acres of manicured grounds, all of them with stunning ocean views from their perch in the Santa Ynez foothills.

Records reveal the property was sold to Perry and Bloom by high-profile businessman C. Robert Kidder, the former CEO of Chrysler and also the former CEO of battery juggernaut Duracell. Originally listed in spring 2019, asking nearly $20 million, the property’s pricetag eventually plummeted to just over $16 million before the Perry-Blooms scooped it up at a further discount.

Kidder and his wife Mary owned the estate for well over 20 years, and photos show they

Would You Buy a Home From ‘Windy City Rehab’? $1.6M House From Season 2 On Sale

A Chicago home that went through a major renovation on Season 2 of “Windy City Rehab” is now available for $1.6 million.

The popular home-flipping show follows designer Alison Victoria as she goes through the process of finding and renovating historic homes to sell with her signature touches.

Along with the workaday challenges of revamping aging fixer-uppers, the show itself has been the subject of a fair bit of controversy, including legal troubles over a past remodel and permit problems. This all played a role in the backstory of this newly renovated home.

This 1906 home was in major disrepair and had a stop-work order placed on it from the city during demolition due to the discovery of rotting wood floors.

“It’s dangerous, someone could fall through,” Victoria says in the episode.

Her co-star, Donovan Eckhardt, had his general contractor’s and developer’s licenses suspended by the city during the

ELTINGVILLE, Staten Island (WABC) — When a new fridge flooded and caused thousands of dollars in damage, a young couple says a retail giant turned its back on them.

“To be honest I was so upset, I couldn’t even handle it,” Jason Anello said.

“It’s just been a big headache,” Anello said.

He’s talking about the thousands in water damage due to a faulty fridge installation.

What Is the Best Month to Buy a House?

The novel coronavirus has caused unprecedented economic convulsions, including disruption in the normal patterns of homebuying in America. A combination of uber-low mortgage interest rates and diminishing supply have forced average real estate prices to record highs in many markets, while changing work lives and a desire for more space are helping drive new and existing homeowners out of cities and into the suburbs and beyond.

But when a new normal does return to the real estate market, that normal can be expected to include some of the imperatives that have driven the U.S. homebuying market all along — the school year perhaps at the top of the list.

While each market is different and in a state of flux to varying degrees, there’s definitely some conventional wisdom the house hunter should take into consideration, whether you’re looking at investment property to flip, for income, or a place to live.

Why You Need To Wait To Buy Real Estate

Investors are trained to look for a good deal; look for value, look for something that’s beat up , look for something they can buy at a low price, pat themselves on the back and say “that was a steal.”

Right now we’ve been hearing a lot of people talk about Real Estate as a place that’s cheap, too cheap, despite all the headwinds from Covid-19.

Ignore the talk; Real Estate is cheap for a reason and you have to be really careful in the space. This isn’t one of those times that you can close your eyes, buy the dip, and feel confident you’ll be rewarded.
