Enter Your Email Address Do you remember the stock market crash during the financial crisis in 2008? The FTSE 100 fell and fell and fell. It was painful, just like the current coronavirus crash. Some people thought it was the end of the world, just like they do today.The 2008 stock market crash was halted, and this one will be too. Afterwards, when investors recover their nerves, the recovery will kick in. That’s what happened after Black Monday in 1987, the crash in 2000, and the financial crisis.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…Share prices will fight back this time round too. The current massive wave of global financial stimulus must gain traction at some point. Meanwhile, social distancing and self-isolation should curb its spread, and human ingenuity should deliver a vaccine or cure at some point.Don’t fear this stock market crash!When that happens, you’ll either pat yourself on the back for taking the once-in-a-decade opportunity to top up your investment portfolio, or kick yourself for leaving it too late.There’s going to be a bumpy ride ahead of us. At time of writing, the FTSE 100 is trading at just above 5,000 and, for all I know, it could fall even lower. There may be an even better opportunity to buy shares than there is today. Yet I’m not hanging around. I’ve started buying now.It’s almost impossible to accurately spot the very bottom of the market after a stock market crash, the inflection point when share prices start rising again. There are too many variables. Mostly it’s driven by sentiment, and nobody can second-guess that, no matter how big their computer or research team. So you won’t do it either…FTSE 100 bargains galoreAnd it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that, after the stock market crash, the FTSE 100 is now roughly 2,500 points lower than it was just a couple of months ago. You’re buying the same index, but for a third of the price.This doesn’t mean it’ll shoot back up to 7,500 in a matter of months, giving you a 50% profit. The damage inflicted by the crash will take time to undo, but you should still be nicely ahead.Especially if you buy companies that have been oversold amid the mayhem. Oil majors BP and Royal Dutch Shell have lost half their value. Their respective yields of 12.48% and 14.34% also look hard to resist.Spirits giant Diageo is down more than a quarter but could recover strongly, as people will certainly need a drink once this is over. Asia-focused insurer Prudential is worth a look, as people will be even more keen to buy protection. Mining giants like BHP Group and Rio Tinto could benefit from stimulus and the Chinese recovery.You’ll have your own ideas about which companies to buy. Just don’t leave it too long. You’ll never find the perfect time to buy them, but if you understand the risks, today looks pretty good.

President Establishes New Rural Export and Investment Initiative

first_img SHARE SHARE By Gary Truitt – Feb 7, 2014 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter President Obama has directed his administration – working through the White House Rural Council – to lead a Made in Rural America export and investment initiative over the next nine months. The goal of the initiative is to bring together federal resources to help rural businesses and leaders take advantage of new investment opportunities and access new customers and markets abroad. The President has instructed the White House Rural Council to coordinate efforts by the Departments of Agriculture and Commerce, the Small Business Administration, the Export-Import Bank, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and other agencies to connect more rural businesses of all types to export information and assistance. In addition – among other things – the Administration plans to host five Made in Rural America regional trade forums and convene an Investing in Rural America conference to promote investment opportunities.[The full Fact Sheet on this new initiative is available here:]center_img President Establishes New Rural Export and Investment Initiative Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News President Establishes New Rural Export and Investment Initiative Previous articleIndiana FFA Readies for National FFA WeekNext articlePresident Obama Signs Farm Bill Gary Truittlast_img read more

Technology Being Used to Battle Affordability Concerns

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. One of the major issues surrounding the housing market currently is the struggle to find affordable housing. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) reported in May that 46% of potential home buyers stated they are having trouble finding an affordable home. According to the NAHB report, the share of buyers who consider high prices the biggest hurdle fell 5 points when compared to 2018. Thanks to technology, though, that could all change, as a POLITICO report outlines how robots and technology could pave the way to affordable housing. The report states that in 2017 a company called Apis Cor, located outside of Moscow, Russia, posted a video where a $10,000 house was built in a day with 3D printing. “Two years later, even as multiple companies such as ICON and MudBots vie to establish themselves as makers of 3D-printed homes, a market has not yet emerged that matches the changes 3D printing has brought to everything from fashion to medical devices. The desire to create that impact remains intense, however,” POLITICO states. Dee Walsh, Chief Officer of Strategic Development for Mercy Housing, a affordable-housing nonprofit based in Denver, Colorado, said while 3D-printed home won’t solve homelessness, it is another “tool in the toolbox for housing development.” The report adds that a company called Suncomy is building a home in Austin, Texas, with its version of 3D-printing technology, which uses a mobile platform to spray geopolymer concrete onto pre-installed insulation panels. The concrete material is fireproof and repels water, says CEO Larry Haines, and can withstand winds of up to 220 mph.Fannie Mae’s latest Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) found that concerns over affordability are driving down consumers’ home purchase decisions. The index dropped 0.5 points in June after reaching its survey high of 91.5 in May, the data indicated. This, despite an eight-percentage-point spike in consumer expectation of lower mortgage rates.“Growing expectations that mortgage rates will remain steady suggest improved stability for housing affordability and helped keep the HPSI relatively flat this month, despite modest declines in other components,” said Doug Duncan, SVP and Chief Economist at Fannie Mae.

Career coach: Will EU enlargement provide career opportunities for UK HR directors?

first_imgCareer coach: Will EU enlargement provide career opportunities for UK HR directors?On 27 Jan 2004 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Fiona Brady, of HRHR Consultancy Services, highlights newpossibilities for careers in HR offered by the biggest enlargement of theEuropean Union in its historyCyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta,Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia are expected to join the EU bloc on1 May 2004. The growth will have an impact on most organisations that operate globallyor Europe-wide, but also on those who are UK based looking to export oroffshore some or part of their business to Continental Europe. This is going to present great career opportunities for UK HR professionalslooking to enhance their careers. Early anecdotal evidence indicates that thecore human resource skills in many of the new EU member states mirror thoserequired in the UK. The effect of EU enlargement Any HR director looking to enhance their career will no doubt be excited atthe enlargement of the EU, and the challenge of managing the people issuesassociated with a UK-based company setting up shop in Slovakia, or one of theother countries poised to join the EU later this year. After all, a few ofthese states are predicted to become new tiger economies. Still, be warned HR: move fast if you want new experiences and jobs in theseemerging economies, because the opportunities won’t last. The simple reason is that big firms such as Sony and Peugeot are currentlyflooding to these countries, lured by low commercial property and house prices,and highly affordable labour. But in doing so, they drive up labour costs, andproperty prices spiral. Within three to five years, these economies will not be as attractive tolarge companies as they are at the moment. Good opportunities for HR willdwindle, and fast. The career options Cranfield research recently confirmed that “A window of opportunity isopening up for international HR professionals in emerging EU territories, butit’s a small one. “As more of the traditional personnel tasks are automated and thefunction is reorganised along global or regional business lines, practitionershave the chance to move on to higher things. But it is vital that they seizethe moment and step through that window in the next two to five years, beforeall the transactional work disappears”. Just what are the career options at HR director level? Is it consultancy,interim, permanent contracts or EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) roles?How do you know which road to take? We always advise people to start fromwithin. What do you want to achieve? What are your main objectives? Often completing the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’sContinuing Professional Development (CPD) log can help you navigate yourpersonal goals within career objectives. The next step is your approach to looking for a new role. This is where themain changes have occurred in a tight market. With decreasing opportunities atHR director level, you will find that the search and recruitment agencies maywant to receive your CV, but won’t do much with it. This is where your personalnetworks and focus is paramount to achieving your ultimate goals. There is no doubt that to find the right role you have to be proactive,focused and realistic. The main differentiator between those who get offered a position and thosewho reach the short-list is down to flexibility, evidence of CPD andapplication, along with the ability to sell your achievements. Whether you are considering consultancy or changing permanent jobs, theopportunities in an enlarged EU look set to soar. While challenging, they maybe a passport for your future career development.

Scott Kraverath, Naval Station Rota, Spain commanding officer.Kraverath added that it is extremely rare to have an opportunity to fly the 15-star flag.“I love to see our nation’s flag flying, no matter the location,” said Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class Paul Lembo. “It’s extra special to be here for the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and see the 15-star flag flying. This is definitely something that I will always remember.”From 2012 through 2015, the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Army are commemorating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 and our national anthem, the “Star-Spangled Banner.” This was the first time Naval Station Rota has flown the 15 star-flag.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, July 4, 2012 Back to overview,Home naval-today U.S. Flag Raised aboard Spanish Naval Base anent July 4 Share this articlelast_img read more

Lehman collapse stifles Varsity sponsorship

first_imgChaos on the world markets spilled over into the sheltered world of Oxford sport yesterday, as the annual Varsity rugby match lost its sponsor, the bankrupt financiers Lehman Brothers.Peter Bridges, Chair of Oxford’s rugby club (OURFC), has insisted that the match will go ahead in December.Given the deepening financial crisis, OURFC may struggle to replace its sponsor for the match, traditionally the biggest event in its calendar.Bridges admitted that the current climate “doesn’t make things easier” but said finding a new sponsor was “not an impossibility.”He refused to disclose how large a hole in OURFC’s budget had been left by the demise of Lehman Brothers, citing confidentiality agreements with the defunct bank. But he said it was “obviously a blow” and would “have an impact, but not to the extent that match can’t go ahead.”Bridges emphasised that OURFC were big enough to cope with the crisis but would still “like a lot of support” at the match.OURFC’s website still advertises the “Lehman Brothers Varsity Match” – a deal the Oxford and Cambridge rugby clubs that was set to run until 2010.Lehman Brothers, the US investment bank, lost billions of dollars in the US mortgage market before filing for bankruptcy yesterday. In response, stock markets around the world have experienced a second day of turmoil.last_img read more
