Peter Stephens | Friday, 6th March, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE See all posts by Peter Stephens “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The FTSE 100’s 14% crash may not be over. But I’d still buy cheap stocks in an ISA today Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The FTSE 100 continues to experience a decline that has seen over 14% of its value wiped since the start of the year. The end of its current downturn does not appear to be in sight, with investor sentiment weakening as the total number of coronavirus cases increases.Buying FTSE 100 shares today, therefore, could realistically lead to paper losses in the short run. However, the index’s value suggests that it is very cheap at the present time, while its track record of recovery indicates that it may produce a successful turnaround in the long run. As such, now could be an opportune moment to buy a diverse range of large-cap shares.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…Impossible forecasting?Trying to buy at the bottom of the FTSE 100’s current decline may be an impossible task. Nobody knows how severe the coronavirus outbreak will ultimately prove to be. Neither can anyone say how negative its impact will be on the world economy.Therefore, trying to anticipate when the FTSE 100 will start to recover is likely to be a guessing game that requires a large amount of luck.By contrast, focusing on the valuation of the index and comparing it to past levels is a more precise process. The FTSE 100 currently has a dividend yield of over 5%. The last time it reached such a level was during the global financial crisis, with that being the only period during which it has had such a high yield since its inception in 1984.A 5%+ yield suggests that the index is cheap at the present time relative to its historic levels. And while it may become even cheaper, buying high-quality shares while they offer good value for money has generally led to strong returns in the long run.Recovery potentialOf course, there is no guarantee that the FTSE 100 will ever recover from its recent crash. However, its track record suggests that it is very likely to record new highs over the coming years as investor sentiment and the performance of the world economy recovers.In fact, the index has experienced worse crashes than its recent fall. The 1987 crash and the global financial crisis were extremely challenging periods for the FTSE 100 and the world economy. Yet over time, it delivered a successful turnaround, and investors who bought high-quality stocks while they offered good value for money were generally rewarded.Certainly, they may have experienced a period of paper losses if they bought before the bottom of the index’s fall. But in the long run, buying FTSE 100 stocks while they are cheap has produced high returns for investors.Therefore, things could get worse before they improve for the FTSE 100. But for long-term investors, the index’s valuation and track record suggest that today could be a buying opportunity after its recent decline.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Investing for a pandemic-proof portfolio

Similarly the travails of property firms and restaurants doesn’t just represent the loss of six months trading – or even the risk of bankruptcy. It also reflects that the business model of these firms may be impaired indefinitely.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…How to own the futureIf the world really is changed forever by Covid-19, then we might have only seen the start of a reordering in the value of many aspects of the economy. It should all be good for companies that can profit from the resultant reshuffling.Also consider M Winkworth, Persimmon“I’m staying in!”The UK stock market is poorly provisioned when it comes to technology firms. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Of course, if we get a vaccine in the next few months then our entertainment choices will surely undergo some mean reversion. I’m no fan of crowds and noise, but even I’m itching to go to a music concert or a sports stadium, or even just an over-populated nightclub or bar. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Investing for a pandemic-proof portfolio Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

See all posts by Owain Bennallack In short: it’s probably not too late to buy. Here are three shares to give you a piece of the post-pandemic action.“Bring me my stuff!”Online retail is nothing new. But who didn’t buy more direct to their door during lockdown? The UK has a long-established reputation for cutting-edge game development and several developers are listed on the stock market. They provide a way to profit from one of the most obvious corollaries of a fearful virus-infested world… the desire to hide away from it! Image source: Getty Images Of course, space is at a premium on this crowded and under-housed island. Not everyone will be able to afford to get the homes they want, and that could have an impact on valuations. But in turn this could result in lower prices that enable more first-time buyers to buy into the property market.Builders could start to cater for this priority reboot by building properties with more breathing room – as well as home offices or more multifunctional spaces. But similar to the shift to online shopping, I suspect our stint in lockdown and its aftermath has created more game fans for life. Game developers will always be risky individual investments. But the future of the sector looks even brighter.Also consider Codemasters, Team17, Keyword Studios And over the years I’ve noticed markets often overreact in the short term while under-reacting in the long term. Investors in the US market – especially in its technology shares – have enjoyed an even stronger recovery from the doom and gloom that gave us the fastest bear market ever in March. Enter Your Email Address Frontier Developments (LSE: FDEV) could be a big beneficiary of our escaping reality. Its games are typically incredibly deep and involved. Some studios make mobile games than you play for 10 minutes on the bus on the way to the pub. Frontier creates games you play for months, immersed in an alternate realm. As a bonus it’s headed up by one of the UK’s greatest game makers, David Braben. Owain Bennallack | Saturday, 5th September, 2020 | More on: FDEV OCDO RMV The bottom line is by turning over decades of established property trends – which had seen us move from suburbs to inner-city cores, and away from houses with unruly gardens to self-contained luxury flats – the property market has now been thrown into flux and perhaps upheaval.

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. There’s one area, though, where we’ve seen a renaissance in opportunities and that’s video game companies. But beneath the index level, when looking at individual stocks, it’s clear the market has also done a first pass at sorting winners and losers from the pandemic and its aftermath.Shares in online retailers and Internet platforms haven’t just rallied because business boomed while we were stuck at home. Investors are also betting these firms have secured more of our attention for the future, too, as a result. One way to play the theme is Ocado (LSE: OCDO). As well as its own online grocery business, Ocado sells retail logistics and distribution know-how to third parties worldwide. If the move to online shopping has jumped forward five years in six months, then despite its strong share price rise since March, Ocado could have much further to go.Also consider Tritax Big Box and ASOS“Give me more room!”Rightmove (LSE: RMV) could win if the pundits are correct about our shifting priorities on home ownership. The theory – and early data – suggests many of us are now desperate for more outdoor space, whether gained by moving to the country or from having a garden or a balcony attached to our urban crash pads. 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. People tried new online shops as well as new categories – for example fresh food and clothing – and they also increased how much they spent. All of this bodes extremely well for online retail. Owain owns shares in Frontier Developments and Rightmove. The Motley Fool UK has recommended ASOS, Frontier Developments, Keywords Studios, Rightmove, and Tritax Big Box. Partly this stock market bounce reflects investors coming to terms with the pandemic and its economic consequences. As rationality returns, we’re better able to reflect the balance of risks without our decisions being egged on by an overdose of fear and adrenaline.last_img read more

Apopka City Council Seat 4 Candidate Q&A – Week 4

first_imgI believe the most important role of city government is to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars and city resources, and to take positive actions to meet resident demands while always ensuring Apopka is set up for success for generations to come. Questions & Answers with Candidates for Apopka City Council Seat 4 – Week 4Each week we will be asking the candidates the questions YOU’RE asking.Seat 3 Candidates Week 4 Seat 3 CandidatesSeat 4 Candidates The most important role of government is to protect life and liberty of every American. In an ever changing climate of political change, the government must constantly adapt their policies to safeguard and defend the lives of all Americans. One area that requires policy change is how our government disparately treats large corporations from small businesses. When the government prefers one entity over another, the government is not protecting the lives of each and every American, but only the interests of a select few. In order that we protect the lives of all Americans, the Government shall not prefer the rights of large corporations over small corporations.Lastly, I believe that the government must protect the liberties of each and every American. We live in times when one party holds the reigns of the power, it often forces its ideology upon those who don’t share it. Our nation was founded upon a fundamental belief that our country shall not establish a national religion. It would evil for a person of Protestant faith to force its ideology upon a Catholic or vice versa. Every American should be treated fairly and his faith, ideology or faith shall not be interfered with. Bill ArrowsmithKyle BeckerYoung Kim Please enter your comment!

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Although there are many important roles of government I feel the most important is to provide the highest quality of public safety and services to the taxpayer while at the same time maintaining the lowest taxes possible. It is incumbent upon government to ensure that the top priority is to equip its fire and police departments with personnel, equipment and facilities to protect our community. Bill ArrowsmithKyle BeckerYoung Kim This Week’s Question: “What is the most important role of government?” In order for our city government to be good stewards, we need to be empathetic, responsive and accountable to our residents, this is accomplished through continual process improvement, and making sure we are up to date in how our city serves our population in an efficient and cost conscious manner.The city charter provides the foundation for how Apopka city government should work, and I fully plan to work within its framework if elected.last_img read more

The All Blacks retain the Bledisloe Cup with convincing win over the Wallabies

first_imgSaturday Aug 25, 2012 The All Blacks retain the Bledisloe Cup with convincing win over the Wallabies The All Blacks kept the Wallabies scoreless for the first time in fifty years as they retained the Bledisloe Cup with a convincing 22-0 victory at Eden Park. It has now been 10 years since Australia held the trophy, contested solely between the two sides. Will Genia said post match that his side were taught a rugby lesson, which summed up the game quite as the All Blacks dominated throughout, making fewer errors and creating more chances.Australia’s defence held firm early on, but a try to Israel Dagg and five penalties and a conversion from Dan Carter proved the difference at Eden Park, the scene of New Zealand’s World Cup win.Sonny Bill Williams, playing in his final game for the All Blacks for some time, showed how much he’s come on in his time as a Rugby Union player. Linebreaks and big hits were the order of the day, while Dagg was sublime from the back and Kieran Read as menacing as ever all over the park.Wallabies coach Robbie Deans is now under major pressure, following their two losses in a row and a poor start to the Rugby Championship. He chose to praise the opposition however. “Let’s just give credit to the All Black performance. That was an outstanding performance tonight,” Deans said. “They’re a side that’s playing with the confidence of being the world champions and I don’t think there’s any side in the world that would have footed it with them tonight, including ourselves obviously.“They gave a master class in rugby today and they’re a side that’s playing with such confidence. They’re getting offloads away and forwards are making little transfers, and confidence builds belief flow. To give credit to our group, I thought it was remarkable that we only actually leaked one try.”The All Blacks have a week off, before facing Argentina in Wellington on September 8th.Do you think that this All Blacks side are unbeatable, or are Australia way off form currently, needing a change in structure, starting with coach Deans?

Pineapple Fund sees anonymous donor give away $86m in bitcoin

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Tagged with: Bitcoin cryptocurrency Pineapple Fund sees anonymous donor give away $86m in bitcoin The Pineapple Fund launched in December, announced through a post on Reddit, and applications closed this month.On the site, the donor, who goes by the name of ‘Pine’, says publicity is not the point of the fund, hence their anonymity, and explains the reasoning behind the fund:“Sometime around the early days of bitcoin, I saw the promise of decentralized money and decided to mine/buy/trade some magical internet tokens. The expectation shattering returns of bitcoin over many years has lead to an amount far more than I can spend.“What do you do when you have more money than you can ever possibly spend? Donating most of it to charity is what I’m doing.”Back in September last year, a partnership saw DonateBitcoin join forces with MakeMyDonation and OrgHunter to enable all 1.5m charities in the U.S. to accept bitcoin donations. Through the deal, when a user makes a bitcoin donation, it is sent to MakeMyDonation through Stripe, with donations instantly converted into US dollars.  177 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 23 February 2018 | Newscenter_img An anonymous donor is giving $86 million worth of bitcoin to charity.So far, $53,047,101m has been donated through the Pineapple Fund, to 58 charities with all funds now allocated. The sums donated to each non-profit have been substantial. They include $1m to the Water Project, $1m to the Sustainable Ocean Alliance, $5m to Maps, $5m to OMF, and $2m to the Internet Archive.

What we’re reading: Trump, homelessness, McDonald’s, O’Rourke

first_imgFacebook printTrump loses tax return battle in federal appeals courtPresident Donald Trump lost his appeal in a New York federal appeals court, and now he must turn over his tax returns, according to NBC News.  The court ruled this morning the president must give these documents to the Manhattan District Attorney. According to a statement from a panel of three judges ruling on the case, “presidential immunity from state criminal process does not extend to investigative steps, like the grand jury subpoena at issue here.” They were originally subpoenaed as part of an investigation into hush-money payments made to two women who claimed they had extramarital affairs with Trump before the 2016 election.The president’s lawyer said he will appeal the case to the Supreme Court.  Austin begins efforts to clean streets – of the homelessState agencies began cleanup efforts on and around the Austin homeless population Monday. The city repealed a camping ban earlier this year, allowing the homeless to sleep and camp in any public area. A “tent city” underneath a highway overpass. Photo courtesy of Julia Reihs for KUT. Complaints of “tent cities” arising near state highways pushed governor Greg Abbott to take action. He had given the city a month to fix the “crisis” before deciding to send in cleanup crews from the Texas Department of Transportation today.

McDonald’s board forces president, CEO outMcDonald’s fired its president and CEO, Steve Easterbrook, for having a relationship with a company employee.McDonald’s issued a statement saying Easterbrook violated company policy and demonstrated poor judgment.“This was a mistake,” Easterbrook said in an email to colleagues. “Given the values of the company, I agree with the board that it is time for me to move on.
