Forget buy-to-let and gold. I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks in this market crash

first_img See all posts by Peter Stephens “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

Peter Stephens | Sunday, 5th April, 2020 The FTSE 100’s market crash in 2020 has prompted some investors to seek less risky assets. For example, the gold price has risen to a seven-year high. Meanwhile, the slower-moving housing market may mean some investors determine buy-to-let properties are a safer destination for their capital than shares at the present time.However, the FTSE 100’s current valuation suggests it’s more appealing than gold or buy-to-let properties. Combined with its recovery potential, this could mean now is the right time to buy a diverse range of large-cap shares and hold them for the long run.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…ValuationsThe gold price could move higher in the short run. The economic impact of coronavirus could be highly negative, which may increase demand for the precious metal. Its history as a store of wealth may prove popular during an economic crisis.However, investor sentiment seems likely to improve over the long run. This could ease demand for less risky assets such as gold. So investors buying it while it is trading at a high price may generate reduced returns.Likewise, buy-to-let properties appear to offer unfavourable valuations at present. Although the housing market has been frozen by restrictions on movement, investors considering the purchase of a property in the coming months may fail to benefit from a wide margin of safety. House prices versus average incomes are close to record highs, which suggests there’s limited scope for capital gains in the coming years.By contrast, the FTSE 100 appears to offer excellent value for money following its recent crash. A wide range of its members now trade on valuations that are significantly lower than their historic averages. This could enable investors to obtain bargain stocks that deliver high returns in the long run.Recovery potentialAlthough other assets such as gold may outperform the FTSE 100 in the short run, the index’s recovery prospects appear to be bright. It has always recovered from its various economic crises in the past. In fact, it’s has gone on to produce new record highs.Sometimes this can take several years. But long-term investors are likely to have sufficient time to benefit from improving profitability across their holdings and strengthening investor sentiment.The history of the stock market shows that, like most assets, it’s cyclical. It experiences bear markets and bull markets on a fairly regular basis. Certainly, the speed of the index’s decline has been somewhat surprising. But just as it was able to recover from the 1987 crash, the dot com bubble, and the global financial crisis, the FTSE 100 looks set to deliver higher highs in the long run.Investors who can buy large-cap shares today while they’re priced to sell could be in the best position to benefit from a recovery.

City Council approves CRA Board Member

first_img Misha, thank you for your write up reviews of the council news. I have a question that either you, Dale Fenwick, or Reggie Connell might know. Maybe Glenn Irby, the city administrator, will see this, and give an answer to my question. Is the public invited to sit in and listen to the CRA meetings, and will they be posted so that the public will know when they will meet? The Old Florida Festival meetings were somewhat confusing at first, when a citizen complained about not getting to attend, after having attended initially the meeting, the first time they met. He felt that since one citizen was on the board, that he should have the same right, as the citizen, to be present and listen in. I believe it was stated that the citizen however, was an appointment, and that made a difference somehow. Eventually, I think the public was invited to attend, and listen to the board, but I am not sure about that. So will this CRA board with only one citizen, who is appointed, and not elected, allow for the public to sit in and listen? Also by the way, I think Pat MacGuffin is an excellent person to serve on the board. Please enter your comment! June 17, 2016 at 7:22 pm Appointment of the Fire Chief.  The position was advertised.  There were 3 internal candidates that were exceptionally qualified.  Chuck Carnesale is being named the new fire chief.  Kilsheimer read some wonderful letters of recommendation that he received on behalf of Carnesale, who has dedicated his life to the Apopka Fire Department, serving in virtually every capacity since he began as an Explorer at the age of 13.

The Board consists of The Apopka City Council, The County Commissioner (Bryan Nelson), and Mac Guffin.Chuck Carnesale 1 COMMENT Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!

Welham Studios started with the study of placement, watching objects in clay and sand creating shapes through the interaction of the wind and rain. The work is looking for a union of object and environment. One aspect of the work developed into the basic forms using triangulation, and this work was the basis of a project with the Swinomish Tribal people of Fidalgo Island Washington State. The Swinomish housing project which has become known as Landhouse started in 2006 It was a visit to my studio by a couple who lived in Seattle. They became interested in the work being done, its physical relationship with the ground and how it translated into a building. The Pennock’s saw an opportunity to connect myself with an Architect friend of there’s, Art Peterson of Cedar Tree Architects in Seattle, who had been working with Ray Williams of the Swinomish Tribal People of Fidalgo Island Washington State, they had just completed the building of a Traditional long House. Save this picture!© Louis PorterThey had been discussing the current housing situation on Fidalgo Island which is a long way from the beliefs and traditions of the Swinomish and bore no resemblance to their surroundings. The houses are currently designed and placed regardless of the Landscape and their Traditions. A meeting was organized and out of it came the idea to develop an environmentally sensitive scheme for an allocated development area and Landhouse was born. The structures were refined and developed into module units comprising of Elder, Student, Single family, Vacation, Multifamily and community facilities. Save this picture!© Louis PorterI came back to the UK and decided to build one which is now almost completed and due to be opened in the spring of next year. This has become Welham Studios that my wife Artist Lucy Glendinning and I work from. The building is constructed in structurally insulated panels using the factory in Seattle that was involved in the Swinomish project; this was to be a test for the modular units. Save this picture!© Louis PorterWe used thermoform 3ply cladding that came in 5m by 2m sheets. The roof is a EPDM membrane with a inbuilt root barrier, a 100mm substrate with a wild flower turf.

Higher Limits Now Available on USDA Farm Loans

first_img SHARE SHARE Previous articleCensus Shows Agriculture Remains Backbone of Hoosier StateNext articleCommentary: Pence Visit Just Putting Lipstick on a Pig USDA Communications Higher Limits Now Available on USDA Farm Loans Higher limits are now available for borrowers interested in USDA’s farm loans, which help agricultural producers purchase farms or cover operating expenses. The 2018 Farm Bill increased the amount that producers can borrow through direct and guaranteed loans available through USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) and made changes to other loans, such as microloans and emergency loans.“As natural disasters, trade disruptions, and persistent pressure on commodity prices continue to impact agricultural operations, farm loans become increasingly important to farmers and ranchers,” FSA Administrator Richard Fordyce said. “The 2018 Farm Bill provides increased loan limits and more flexibility to farm loans, which gives producers more access to credit when they need it most.”Key changes include:The Direct Operating Loan limit increased from $300,000 to $400,000, and the Guaranteed Operating Loan limit increased from $ 1.429 million to $1.75 million. Operating loans help producers pay for normal operating expenses, including machinery and equipment, seed, livestock feed, and more.The Direct Farm Ownership Loan limit increased from $300,000 to $600,000, and the Guaranteed Farm Ownership Loan limit increased from $1.429 million to $1.75 million. Farm ownership loans help producers become owner-operators of family farms as well as improve and expand current operations.Producers can now receive both a $50,000 Farm Ownership Microloan and a $50,000 Operating Microloan. Previously, microloans were limited to a combined $50,000. Microloans provide flexible access to credit for small, beginning, niche, and non-traditional farm operations.Producers who previously received debt forgiveness as part of an approved FSA restructuring plan are now eligible to apply for emergency loans. Previously, these producers were ineligible.Beginning and socially disadvantaged producers can now receive up to a 95 percent guarantee against the loss of principal and interest on a loan, up from 90 percent.About Farm LoansDirect farm loans, which include microloans and emergency loans, are financed and serviced by FSA, while guaranteed farm loans are financed and serviced by commercial lenders. For guaranteed loans, FSA provides a guarantee against possible financial loss of principal and interest.For more information on FSA farm loans, visit www.fsa.usda.gov or contact your local USDA service center.

After EU lifts sanctions, Cuba asked to show magnanimity towards Reporters Without Borders correspondent

first_img Organisation New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council Reporters Without Borders appeals to Raúl Castro’s government for a show of magnanimity towards the organisation’s correspondent, Ricardo González Alfonso, and other imprisoned journalists in return for the European Union’s decision on 23 June to lift the political sanctions it had imposed Cuba. The Cuban government had made this a condition for restoring normal relations with the EU.“There have been a few advances in freedom of expression and information since Raúl Castro took over as Council of State president on 24 February, with Cuban being given the right to buy their own computer equipment or enter tourist hotels that have better Internet connections,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The dialogue begun by the Spanish government undoubtedly contributed to this, just as it led to the release in February of independent journalist Alejandro González Raga and two other detainees from the 2003 ‘Black Spring’.”The press freedom organisation added: “A similar gesture is now needed with the 23 other journalists who are still imprisoned, 19 of whom have been held since the March 2003 crackdown. The EU sanctions imposed after the crackdown, which were suspended in 2005, have now been definitively lifted. The Cuba government got its way, so there is no longer any excuse for sidestepping the call for an improvement in human rights and free expression.”As well as being the Reporters Without Borders Cuba correspondent, González is the founder of the Manuel Márquez Sterling journalists’ association and the independent magazine De Cuba. He was arrested on 18 March 2003 and was given a 20-year prison sentence on the absurd charge of being a “mercenary” in the pay of the United States. He has been held in Havana’s Combinado del Este prison since the end of 2004.Now aged 58, he suffers from high blood pressure and cervical arthritis, and has problems with his circulation and digestion. After a long spell in the prison hospital and a total of four operations in 2006 and 2007, he was returned to his cell on 27 January of this year, although he is still in very poor health.His wife, Alida Viso Bello, told Reporters Without Borders on 23 June that for the past month he has not been getting the Captopril medicine that heart doctors prescribed for his high blood pressure, and that he is having a lot of arthritis attacks because he does not have an appropriate chair in his cell. Viso never got a reply to the request she submitted last February for him to be released on health grounds.With a total of 23 journalists detained, Cuba continues to be the world’s biggest prison for the media after China. It is the western hemisphere’s only country that not does permit any form of media that is not under direct government control.

Assembly Majority Leader Holden Releases Statement on Legislative Budget Agreement

first_img Subscribe Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) released the following statement on passage of the state budget this afternoon:In the wake of the recession, this budget continues the work of rebuilding our state. I am encouraged to see that schools are the primary beneficiary of our improving economy. The budget passed today includes an additional $8.2 billion for K-12 education.There is also an additional $107 million for Cal State University and $25 million for the University of California. This comes on top of the $120 million proposed by the Governor.Jobs and the economy are two of our highest priorities. One of the reasons I am proud to support this budget is because it represents an effort to uplift the working poor and children of the working poor. It doesn’t accomplish this by raising taxes or complicating our business climate. We accomplished this through the earned-income tax credit and the local control funding formula.Recognizing the seriousness of the ongoing drought, this budget will begin appropriating the first part of voter-approved funds contained in the Water Bond. The multi-year, $2.38 billion plan begins investing in critical water infrastructure including drinking water and desalination projects.”The budget now goes to the Governor. He has two weeks to sign or veto all or portions of the spending agreement which goes into effect July 1.
