It may help you to invest £5k, or any other amount, for the long term in high-quality businesses that have the capacity to recover from the market crash.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…Business qualityAt the present time, it’s unclear which UK shares will prosper in the long run. The coronavirus pandemic is, unfortunately, still present. Therefore, it’s too soon to know with any degree of confidence what its ultimate impact will be on specific industries and the wider economy. Other risks, such as Brexit, may also weigh on the financial performances of some industries in the coming months.Therefore, it makes sense to focus your capital on high-quality businesses that have the financial means and competitive advantage to adapt to changing operating conditions. Assessing the quality of a business has long been a key tenet of Buffett’s investing strategy. In fact, he’s been willing to pay premium prices in the past for those companies he believes are worthy of a higher valuation than their peers.Through buying UK shares that have a stronger competitive position than their rivals, as well as solid finances, you may be better able to benefit from a likely recovery after the recent stock market crash. They may offer less risk, and greater reward potential, than their index peers.A long-term focus on UK sharesThe short-term prospects for many UK shares are precarious at the present time. However, in the long run, many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks are likely to recover from the recent decline. That’s because no economic downturn has ever lasted in perpetuity. Therefore, as operating conditions improve, financial performances from a wide range of businesses could do likewise.Buffett has always focused on the long-term prospects for his holdings. Although, in many cases, the companies he has purchased have failed to deliver high returns in the months following their purchase, he has stuck with them because, eventually, strong business performance is likely to be reflected in a rising stock price.Therefore, while the near-term prospects for UK shares may be challenging in some cases, buying and holding strong companies for the long term could lead to high returns. The track record of the stock market shows it has delivered an annualised return in the high-single digits over recent decades.Through using a buy-and-hold strategy, you can obtain similar results from your portfolio, as the stock market gradually recovers from its recent crash.

Skinstad: Boks have reasons for optimism

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Even though the Springboks bowed out in heroic, agonising circumstances to the All Blacks in the World Cup semi-final last weekend, their 2007 World Cup winning backrow, Bobby Skinstad, says the side did more than enough not to be defined by the never-to-be-forgotten loss to Japan on the first weekend.For Skinstad, now a TV pundit for SuperSport in Cape Town, the competition has marked something of a changing of the guard within Springbok ranks. “The experimental nature of South African rugby is sometimes suppressed a little, but during the tournament I’d say the upside is we’ve uncovered more quality personnel. Heyneke (Meyer) has had to experiment because of injuries to the likes of Jean de Villiers and Victor Matfield.”What has pleased the 42-cap former Bok captain is that the players who stood in have grown in stature. “Take Damien de Allende. He has been one of our best performers, while Jesse (Kriel) has been outstanding in attack. You have to remember Jesse is just 21 and still learning. Not many people know but Jesse has played for two teams at centre. One is Baby Boks at U20 Level and the other is the Springboks. Usually he plays at full-back, so it’s been a massive learning curve and he’s stepped up.”Fond memories: Skinstad was part of the 2007 Rugby World Cup winning squadSkinstad says one player who could break up the burgeoning midfield is Jan Serfontein, the 2012 Young Player of the Year. “Jan is very talented and has been unlucky with injuries. He pushed Damien and Jesse in this World Cup. You have the nucleus of a very strong midfield and they’re all in their early twenties.”Skinstad says despite a settled current back three now, there could be changes for Japan 2019. “The back three are settled atthe moment but there will be different personnel. They will lose Bryan (Habana) who’s 32, while JP (Pietersen) might be around. Willie Le Roux probably will be, whileBryan’s understudy is Lwase Mvovo who is 29 so we may see others emerging.”Somewhere the former No 8 has more personal experience is in the pack, where he sees ‘traditional’ values being upheld. “During this World Cup we’ve returned to having more than one enforcer. South Africa has always had five or six players who can carry, tackle, hit rucks. It’s the South Africa way.”Engine room: Eben Etzebeth is only 23 but already hugely experiencedLike the backs, Skinstad says there are loose forwards ready to take over from the likes of Schalk Burger and Francois Louw. “Nizaam Carr who narrowly missed the RWC squad, Siya Kolise who just made the squad but didn’t see much game time and back five player, Pieter Steph du Toit are all capable of replacing the likes of Duane Vermeulen and Willem Alberts when the time is right. 2015 saw the last of 2007 World Cup winners at the tournament but we’re in pretty good shape for 2019.”As for the much-lamented Northern Hemisphere, Skinstad doesn’t subscribe to the notion that there is a chasm between them and the boys in the South. “I wouldn’t say they’re lacking in skill with the North. Remember Wales and Scotland pushed South Africa and Australia very, very close.” Skinstad says he was impressed with Wales’ resilience but says they’ll be disappointed with their execution. “Wales should have scored on two occasions early on. The fact they didn’t cost them the game. The Boks had one and they took it. One chance. I’m not going to bash players, but Wales had the ability with fewer injuries to finish off one of those chances. When you start converting those chances, you’re going to win games more often than not.”Battle royal: Skinstad says the gap between North and South is narrower than many thinkThe former Stormer also doesn’t believe there should be leadership change at the top with England.“There’s no need for root and branch upheaval. Take England. If you turf the coach, you risk losing the culture (Stuart) Lancaster has built. The players will have learnt a huge amount this tournament and it wasn’t exactly an easy pool. They were playing No 3 and No 5 in the World. Clive Woodward lost to us in 1999 and was roasted by the press but he kept his job. He sold a vision and won in 2003. The same with Graham Henry in 2007 and they won in 2011. There’s no need to throw the baby out of the bath water.”As for Wales, Skinstad says Warren Gatland has finished with his reputation almost enhanced. “I mean, what more could he have done? He’s had the sniper on the hill snipping the hamstrings of players. Literally nothing he could have done anything about. In the circumstances, they’ve had a good tournament.”Tough call: Skinstad says there needn’t necessarily be change at the top with EnglandAs for Ireland, he also not got sympathy as their players dropped, one by one. “Since coming in, Joe Schmidt has been excellent for Ireland but they started to get lots of key injuries with (Paul) O’Connell and (Peter) O’Mahony out and Sean O’Brien lost to suspension. It was bad luck. As for Scotland, they were magnificent against Australia and look like a side on the up.” With the Springboks left to lick their wounds, former World Cup winner, Bobby Skinstad is unruffle and says the North-South gap isn’t unsurmountable With Northern Hemisphere side heading South next summer and Ireland due to travel South Africa next, the boys of the North will soon have a chance to start redressing the balance.Bobby Skinstad was speaking at Beyond Rugby at London’s City Hall as part of the Beyond Sport Summit & Awardslast_img read more

Reserves essential for bolstering resilience to future shocks

first_img“Given the worryingly low level of reserves in the sector, the importance of the nature of our work and the uncertainty of 2020 and beyond, NGOs must start planning for any future shocks. Charities should aim to have reserves well above eight weeks so if faced with a financial shock, they can continue to honour any programming and pay staff salaries and running costs – building reserves needs to be a financial priority for many organisations.  “Building reserves is a delicate balancing act between spending money directly on programmes as efficiently as possible and investing in an organisation’s growth, without compromising its resilience. This is something donors, trustees and organisational staff all need to work on together – especially as building reserves now will be more difficult than ever. “Far from reserves being perceived a bad thing by donors, reserves reveal the financial health of an organisation.” Melanie May | 2 February 2021 | News  290 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Reserves essential for bolstering resilience to future shockscenter_img Despite the challenges, charities need to build up their reserves to help them weather future financial shocks and prevent programme closures and job losses, according to a new report.The report, by Bond and haysmacintyre, warns that UK NGOs will continue to face a challenging financial future in the years ahead due to the UK’s economic downturn, cuts to the aid budget, and a potential reduction in official development assistance from 0.7% of gross national income to 0.5%.A clear majority (85%) of organisations, the report found, state their reserves are a ‘major part of their risk management and financial resilience’. However, it also found that pre-Covid, most UK charities lacked sufficient reserves, with the average level of large charity reserves covering two months of running costs. Barriers include lack of opportunity, and concerns over donor perceptions of large reserves. 64% of survey respondents cited ‘lack of opportunity’ as the most common issue preventing organisations from building up their reserves, while 45% were concerned about what donor attitudes would be if the organisation built up their reserves.  The report found individual giving to be the most effective way to build a surplus regardless of an organisation’s size, with 50% of respondents saying it was the best way to build reserves. 80% of smaller organisations said individual giving is one of their top surplus earners, compared to just under 40% of larger organisations. However, nearly 90% of larger organisations felt that restricted grants were a source of surplus, in comparison to 33% of small NGOs.Graham MacKay, Bond’s chief operating officer, said:  Advertisement Tagged with: Finance Research / statistics About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Enough is enough! Oakland teachers set Feb. 21 strike date

first_imgAt a Feb. 16 press conference Oakland Education Association President Keith Brown said, “Enough is enough. Bargaining with our school district has not worked. The only option that Oakland teachers, parents and students have left to win the schools Oakland students truly deserve and to take control of our district back from the billionaires is for the 3,000 OEA members to go on strike.” (ktvu.com, Feb. 16) Brown announced that teachers will strike Feb. 21, following over two years of Oakland teachers having bargained for a fair contract and support services for students. Brown said, “Oakland teachers cannot afford to live in Oakland. One out of five leaves each year. Our students do not have adequate supports. Oakland Unified School District schools are not failing; OUSD is failing our schools. This is a racial justice issue in a school district that is overwhelmingly students of color. We have been fighting for two years for justice.”On Feb. 15, a three-member “neutral,” fact-finding commission released a report  validating all the OEA contract demands for higher salaries, smaller class sizes and more nurses and counselors in the schools.In the midst of contract negotiations, the OUSD came out with a five-year “blueprint” plan to close or consolidate 24 neighborhood schools. The first school closure announced was Roots International Academy, a predominantly African-American public school. Despite a strong community-led campaign by Roots teachers, students and parents, the school board voted 6-1 to close Roots. The teachers’ union quickly responded by opposing all plans to close Oakland public schools.OEA President Brown made it clear that the union is opposed to the unregulated growth of charter schools in the district at the expense of public schools. Thirty percent of all schools are currently charters. “OUSD priorities are clearly not the students. OUSD priorities are billionaire donors who have funneled over one half a million dollars through Go Public Schools and the California Charter School Association into school board races in the last three years alone.”Brown explained that the Oakland school superintendent and school board are implementing a so-called “portfolio district” plan like ones forced upon poor communities in New Orleans, Detroit and Newark, N.J. This model mandates public school closures in Black and Brown communities despite lack of evidence that closing schools saves money.Several Oakland parents spoke at the press conference, calling upon parents to not send their children to school in support of the strike. They urged parents, community members and students to join the teachers on the picket line.Union leader Brown reminded everyone that on Feb. 21, “We will strike with our parents. We will strike for our students. We will strike for education and racial justice. We will strike for the future of public education in Oakland.”Greenspan is a middle school public school teacher and a member of the Oakland Education Association.

Indiana Harvest Progresses Despite Rain

first_img Indiana Harvest Progresses Despite Rain Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 4, 2016 Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Harvest Progresses Despite Rain Previous articleDuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 10/4/16Next articleUSDA Report shows Biobased Industry Contributes Billions to U.S. Economy Gary Truitt SHARE Frequent rain showers slowed harvest progress and kept grain moisture high, according to Greg Matli, Indiana State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. The beginning of the week was mild allowing farmers to get out to the fields, but near continual rain showers towards the end of the week halted most fieldwork. There were 3.9 days available for fieldwork for the week ending October 2, down 2.3 days from the previous week.Some farmers attempted to cut and bale hay this week, despite the suboptimal conditions. Pastures continued to be lush from the added moisture, keeping grazing livestock in good condition. Some farmers were concerned that feedlots may become too muddy if the wet weather continues. Few wheat fields were planted last week. When the weather permitted, farmers harvested tomatoes, potatoes and seed corn.Corn matured was 87% complete in the North, 86% in Central and 87% in the South. Corn harvested for grain was 16% complete in the North, 21% in Central, and 47% in the South. Diplodia ear rot, stalk rot and various mold pressures remain high in corn fields given the wet conditions and cooler temperatures. Much of the harvested grain has to be dried due to high moisture. Corn rated in good to excellent condition was 73% in the North, 76% in Central, and 60% in the South.Soybeans dropping leaves were 88% complete in the North, 86% in Central, and 65% in the South. Soybeans were 14% harvested in the North, 19% in Central, and 9% in the South. Soybean harvest continues to fall behind last year and the five year average, with no help from the rain. Some growers reported that the plant defoliation process has slowed down from the rainy weather, contributing to the slow harvest pace for beans. Soybeans rated in good to excellent condition was 79% in the North, 80% in Central, and 66% in the South.last_img read more

They risk being sent to prison for a year.Special Prosecutor David Ferris has not yet decided whether to ask for a prison sentence.

The Link Between Housing Affordability and Wage Growth

first_img HOUSING San Francisco 2019-05-10 Seth Welborn  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News May 10, 2019 971 Views The San Francisco Bay area is one of the priciest housing markets in the country. Despite a 39% increase in inventory and an ongoing increase in affordability within the San Francisco Bay area, many homeowners and potential homeowners are still finding the area unaffordable.In this Video Spotlight, Joe Lonsdale, Founding Partner of 8VC, talks with CNBC’s “Squawk Box” about what needs to be done to address the Bay area’s affordability crisis.“Generally, wealth creation is extremely positive, but it’s increasing the demand for homes, and we’re not increasing the supply,” Lonsdale said.Lonsdale notes that, currently, 40% of the Bay area is designated for grazing cattle, cutting down on potential room for housing. Lonsdale suggests that making use of this land, and thus bringing down housing costs in the San Francisco Bay area, could potentially increase wages across the U.S.“You’re starting to see 10,000 people per year leave because of the housing costs, and you’re starting to see all of our companies are not able to hire,” he said.“If we were able to bring down the average cost of housing in San Francisco to the national level, wages around the country would go up by $2,000 per person,” Lonsdale claims. He argues that, with housing costs lowered in San Francisco, talent would be pulled back into the Bay area and Silicon Valley, creating a ripple effect that would boost competition and wage growth elsewhere the country.See what he has to say below.
