In recent weeks, the coronavirus outbreak has been wreaking stock market havoc. There are still many unanswered questions about not only how individuals can stay healthy in the coming weeks, but also what the economic effects of the virus will be. As a result, markets globally have become volatile and so many darlings of the stock market have started falling like knives. Similarly, year-to-date, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indices are down in double-digits, percentage-wise. Therefore today, I’d like to discuss what I’d do as a long-term investor amid the current noise of the coronavirus uncertainty.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…Why I wouldn’t run for the hillsIn investing, risk and return go together. In general, share prices are based on investors’ expectations of a company’s future profits. Over the past few weeks, markets have been taking fright as they wonder how travel, retail sales including luxury goods, supply chains (especially those dependent mainly on China), and manufacturing may be affected.As we begin to get warnings from analysts or trading updates from companies themselves, markets are seeing many share prices fall fast. Some investors tend to react to such updates first and ask questions later.  Whenever markets decline considerably in a matter of weeks, many investors wonder if they should sell and accept the paper losses. Each portfolio is unique and different investors have different risk/return profiles. However, history tells us that markets tend to recover from losses, only to make new highs. Yet timing the market is extremely difficult, especially for the average investor. Personally, I’m a long-term investor. My investing horizon is years. Therefore I’m determined to not get caught up in the panic. Warren Buffett’s wisdomAs many of our readers would know, Warren Buffett is regarded as one of the best investment managers in the world. He has recently repeated his long-held view that stocks tend to outperform other asset classes in low-interest-rate environments.But he also admits that neither he nor anyone else could know what direction the economy or shares will take in the future. Yet he doesn’t think there’s any need for worry for the individual who doesn’t use borrowed money and who can control his or her emotions.To him, if you’re not thinking of owning the stock you’ve just bought for at least 10 years, don’t even think of owning it for 10 minutes. As he takes a long-term approach, falling prices don’t make him nervous because he has seen equity markets recover time after time. Instead he sits tight and patiently waits.What else can the average investor do?In the short run, I’m expecting continued volatility in stock markets as well as in the value of the pound and prices of most commodities. Not only when we have uncertainty in the markets, but in general, I’d regularly review my portfolio with an eye to diversifying. Diversification, either by sector or geography, may provide a relatively defensive investment opportunity.Our readers may also consider buying a FTSE 100 tracker fund or the FTSE All-World ETF that tracks the performance of a large number of stocks worldwide.On a final note, this market crash has boosted dividend yields of many FTSE 100 shares to over 6%. And this annual payout would be on top of any potential long-term returns from the share prices themselves. See all posts by Tezcan Gecgil, PhDlast_img read more

The Motley Fool UK has recommended Associated British Foods and HSBC Holdings. 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 recent market crash has caused a wide range of UK shares to trade at lower prices. Economic uncertainty may mean their valuations decline further in the short run. But, over the long term, the past performance of the FTSE 100 suggests they’re likely to recover.As such, now could be the right time to build an ISA portfolio that includes the two UK shares discussed below. Investing £3k, or any other amount, in them may boost your ISA’s prospects and improve your financial situation in the coming years.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…HSBC: a low share price after the market crashThe market crash has contributed to a sharp fall in the HSBC (LSE: HSBA) share price. It currently trades 40% lower than it did at the start of the year. Its disappointing financial performance caused investor sentiment to weaken.For example, the bank reported a 9% fall in revenue in its interim results. This was largely caused by a lower interest rate environment. This could also continue to have a negative impact on its financial prospects in the medium term.However, the company will now accelerate plans to improve its efficiency to become leaner and more profitable over the long run. This may include an increased use of technology and a reduction in headcount that leads to a more sustainable rate of profit growth. Alongside a resilient performance from its Asia operations in recent months, this could catalyse its financial prospects in the coming years.Furthermore, its lower share price seems to factor in many of the risks it faces after the market crash. This suggests it offers a favourable risk/reward opportunity for long-term investors.ABF: a FTSE 100 stock with recovery potentialABF (LSE: ABF) is another FTSE 100 stock that’s experienced a disappointing share price performance due to the market crash. Its stock price is currently down 23% since the start of the year, with store closures in its retail segment a main reason for weaker investor sentiment.The company’s recent trading update highlighted that the vast majority of its Primark clothing stores have now reopened. They’ve delivered encouraging sales performances despite the busines offering minimal markdowns on its products. This suggests its medium-term outlook could be relatively robust following a short-term decline in sales.Furthermore, ABF’s performance within its other segments has generally been encouraging. Its grocery and sugar segments performed relatively well. This will help to mitigate the overall financial impact of temporary store closures, and could help to support the company’s share price in the short run.With weak consumer confidence and an uncertain economic outlook after the market crash, ABF’s focus on value retailing could make it a relatively popular option for price-conscious consumers. As such, now could be the right time to buy it while it offers a wide margin of safety. Image source: Getty Images.

first_img3 reasons why I think the Barclays share price is set to climb Alan Oscroft | Friday, 30th October, 2020 | More on: BARC I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. If you’d invested in Barclays (LSE: BARC) at the start of 2020, you’d be 40% down now, as the banks have been battered by the Covid-19 crisis. The longer term is not much better, with the Barclays share price down 55% in five years. But I think the current short-term market view of the FTSE 100‘s banks is a mistake. I reckon the whole sector, and Barclays in particular, should look a lot better this time next year. Here are three reasons why I’d buy now.Liquidity is as healthy than everThe Barclays share price suggest the bank is struggling. But if it is, it’s not showing in the balance sheet. The Bank of England’s annual stress tests have been suspended for the current year. Who needs to put the banks through simulated stress when they’re in the middle of the real thing, right?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…But at Q3 time, things looked just fine to me. Barclays’ CET1 ratio, which is its key stress test measure, had actually improved since before Covid-19 arrived. At 14.6% at 30 September, it’s up on December’s figure of 13.8%.Credit impairment charges did rise to £4.3bn (from £1.4bn a year previously), but the banks seems to have that covered well enough. And we’re looking at a tangible net asset value per share or 275p. That’s approximately 2.6 times the current share price, and up on last year.2021 forecasts are strong and improvingYou might not guess it from the recent Barclays share price performance, but forecasts are pretty upbeat right now. Well, for 2021 at least. In the current year, analysts expect EPS to fall around 60%, which isn’t great. But that would still represent a pre-tax profit of more than £2bn, which I think would be a good result in an allegedly disastrous year for banks.On that alone, a forward P/E of 21 might not make Barclays a screaming buy. But forecasts suggest EPS in 2021 will return very close to 2019 levels, which would drop the P/E to only around nine.I know forecasts are far from certain, especially this year. But analysts have been gradually raising their predictions as the year progresses. The consensus looks convincingly positive to me.Dividend should boost the Barclays share priceThe Prudential Regulation Authority stepped in this year to bring a halt to bank dividends. It’s arguable whether the regulatory body should have interfered in a free market — though the free market did lead to the banking crisis not so long ago. But anyway, whatever else happened, the suspension of 2020 dividends will surely have contributed to the fall in the Barclays share price.Dividends will resume, for sure. The question is when and how much? Again, analysts have a recovery to pre-pandemic levels penciled in for 2021. And, on the current Barclays share price, we’d be looking at a yield of 4.4%. It would be more than 2.5 times covered by earnings too.The 2020 dividend cut will surely have no adverse long-term effect. And I reckon it’s helped provide investors with an even better buying opportunity this year. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

This small 1920s estate house with a large garden – acquired by the clients in the winter of 2010 – is located on the northern periphery of the city of Aachen. A two-storey, fifty sqm extension was added to the seventy sqm house to cater to the spatial needs of the new owner family with three children. The original building is a simple brick structure with a clinker façade. One of the main questions during the design phase was, “how to extend?” The intention was that the extension and the partially new roof convert the existing simple building structure into a generous, open, compact residential home, which carried forward the simplicity of the existing materials using contemporary means. Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe main house and the garden flow into one another on the ground floor of the extension. A main living space has been created here as a sort of garden room, which atmospherically mediates between inside and outside as a result of the materials used: an open concrete skeleton has been extensively glazed to provide an unimpeded view of the garden and the surroundings. The east-facing red clinker outer wall of the main house has been cleaned up; as an interior wall, it now dominates the spatial character of the “garden room”. The rawness of the clinker contrasts with a fine, white-leached wooden floor. Save this picture!© Filip DujardinExtending the house towards the garden, opening up the staircase to the upper floor and the new wall panelling of the stairs with integrated balustrade, have transformed the role of the old wooden staircase. With its oxblood red colour it has now become the most succinct element of the entrée, which, as a central space, generously connects old and new building, ground and top floor with one another. The existing red and white tiled entrance floor now lies like a carpet in the middle of the house. Save this picture!© Filip DujardinFollowing the stairs and the skylight to the top floor, you reach the private living area. Four bedrooms, each with its own character, accommodate two adults and three children. A light shaft provides natural light to a new, centrally located bathroom. Clever overlapping means that the ceiling of the bathroom acts as a sleeping loft for the neighbouring children’s bedroom, in the original building. Two rooms have been created for the boys in the extension. A ladder leads from the hall of the top floor into the attic, which provides room for visitors, retreat or storage. Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe dark red clinker façade of the original building interlocks with the red-brown unplastered pumice and light-weight concrete bricks of the extension; it interprets the existing material in a contemporary manner and combines with the original in colour to form a new compact building volume. 1+1=1. This architecture strives towards specialness rather than streamlined densification; it breaks conventional perception spaces and patterns to take forward the raw, brash charm of this former workers’ housing estate. Its appearance clearly stands in contrast to the mainstream too smooth and too perfect. Cramped spaces have been transformed into the expanse and lightness of a sense of contemporary dwelling.

first_imgVillwock praised the committee for taking action to simplify conservation programs and for eliminating inefficiencies in nutrition and food assistance  programs. The Knox County farmer told HAT that he hopes the fast track action by the Senate will spur the House Ag Committee to move ahead on their version of the 2012 farm  Bill. He speculated that the House may wait for full Senate action before advancing a bill in the House Ag Committee. Facebook Twitter SHARE Home News Feed Villwock Encouraged by Progress on Farm Bill [audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/04/farmbillreact.mp3|titles=Villwock Encouraged by Progress on Farm Bill] By Gary Truitt – Apr 29, 2012 Don VillwockLast week, the Senate Agriculture Committee passed its version of the 2012 Farm Bill.  The proposal cuts $23 billion from farm program spending, eliminates direct payments to farmers, and makes sweeping changes in a number of conservation and commodity programs. Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock said he was pleased to see the Senate Ag Committee take action on the Farm Bill, but was not pleased with the shallow loss approach adopted as part of the government safety net.  Villwock favors the deep loss approach which is designed to provide assistance to producers when they have a catastrophic loss, due to market or weather events, “In general, farmers can handle a 10% or 15% loss, but it is when they suffer something like a 50% loss that the government should be there to step in and help.” The measure eliminates direct payments to farmers, but also left out consideration to several key crops, including popcorn, “Indiana is a major popcorn producing state, and popcorn has been included in previous Farm Bill but has been left out of the Senate plan.” Villwock said many Indiana farmers rotate corn and popcorn; and, under the current Senate Bill, when they plant popcorn it would not be included in their corn base history.

We reiterate our appeal to the Egyptian authorities to drop all the charges against Mohamed Fadel Fahmy, Baher Mohamed and Peter Greste, who are not guilty of any crime.”According to the Egyptian media, the long-awaited verdict hearing scheduled for 30 July was cancelled on the grounds of Judge Hassan Farid’s poor health without the lawyers or journalists being notified in advance.The expectation ahead of today’s hearing was even greater but, as soon as it began, a new judge announced that it was being postponed yet again. According to an Agence France-Presse journalist who was there, it was postponed because some of the co-defendants could not be brought to the court.US secretary of state John Kerry’s visit to Cairo today and French President Francois Hollande’s visit on 6 August for the inauguration of the new Suez Canal had fuelled hopes that verdicts would finally be announced today and that the journalists would be released.Egypt’s judicial system and government would thereby have signalled a readiness to respect media freedom. Instead, the delay shows that the trial of Al-Jazeera’s journalists is not a priority for the regime and that any pressure being applied by the international community is having no effect.Fahmy, Mohamed and Greste (who is being tried in absentia because he was deported to Australia on 1 February under a presidential decree) will now have to wait another four weeks in order to learn their fate. If not acquitted, they are facing up to ten years in prison. If convicted, they will be able to appeal.With at least 15 journalists currently detained in connection with their work, Egypt is the world’s fourth biggest prison for media personnel (after China, Eritrea and Iran). It is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Each $10 donation will support The Judgement Free Generation’s mission of combatting the judgement and bullying faced by teens through funding programming, training and resources.Planet Fitness has been a proud champion of encouraging people to be “judgement free,” inviting members to come work out as they are, without fear of being criticized or judged. With more than 1,200 locations nationwide, each location’s walls provide inspirational messages of encouragement such as “You Belong” and “No Critics.”Planet Fitness launched The Judgement Free Generation™ in March 2016 with an initial $1.3M commitment to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and STOMP Out Bullying™ to fund pro-kindness and anti-bullying programs nationwide.

Of employed individuals who work remotely at least one day a week, 23% said they were more likely to consider moving because of the pandemic, as only 13% of employed people who always work at their employer’s location said the same.Zillow economists expect 17.2% more home sales this year than in 2020.“As the pandemic subsides and the economy begins to recover, lowered health risks and renewed homeowner financial confidence should bring more sellers to the market,” said Zillow Economist Arpita Chakravorty. “That increased inventory would ease buyer competition that has driven prices higher during the pandemic, but expect a steady pace of home value growth to persist into the near future. Mortgage rates have risen some but are still low by historical standards, adding to people’s purchasing power and helping to keep competition for homes revved up.”Pandemic-related job loss has contributed to a number of the nation’s renters being forced to sit on the sidelines in a buyer’s market. Federal actions extending eviction and foreclosure moratoria have been extended several times, as estimated 2.3 million Americans are currently in forbearance plans according to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). Zillow panelists believe a large majority (85%) of cash-strapped renters will either find ways to remain in their current home or will avoid eviction by moving to a less-expensive home. Still, panelists said they expect some 15% of currently distressed renters will ultimately be evicted, representing millions of households.In terms of the ideal home that shoppers seek, the survey found that Americans prefer a 2,000-square-foot home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms—the same as when surveyed a year ago.And while the ideal home has not changed, the number of homes has dried up as the demand has far exceeded the supply nationwide. A majority of ZHPE panelists (53%) expect home inventory to grow again this year, likely during the second half of 2021. An increase in existing-homes being listed for sale is expected to be the biggest factor in the reversal, with 38% of panelists saying this will factor as a catalyst for this growth in inventory.”As the economy continues to recover, more potential sellers will enter the market as they gain confidence in their employment,” said Samer Kuraishi, President and Founder at The ONE Street Company in Washington, D.C. “It’s been tough on homeowners who want to sell but might have lost their job, or cannot work remotely. Increased employment stability will only raise confidence and push people off the sidelines. While we have optimism about April and the summer, our work with clients will remain the same: arm, educate, and empower them to learn the market and understand the road ahead.”Strong competition for the short supply available forced prices upward last year, as the typical U.S. home appreciated by more than $20,000 in 2020. Even with an expectation for more inventory to help meet buyer demand, ZHPE panelists on average expect home prices to grow 6.2% in 2021—a full two percentage points higher than when they were surveyed in Q4 2020—as several panelists call for double-digit price growth this year.“In the wake of last year’s heady home equity gains, these new projections indicate that the aggregate value of homes across the country will increase by another $2 trillion in 2021,” said Terry Loebs, founder of Pulsenomics. “This is great news for existing homeowners, but even with a robust economic rebound in the coming months affordability will likely remain a challenge for many aspirational renters looking to move into homeownership this year.”Click here to read more about the Q1 2021 Zillow Home Price Expectations (ZHPE) survey.
