Do you fear a market meltdown? Here’s what I’d do

first_img Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares With valuations in many markets around the world looking toppy (particularly in the US) and investors arguably complacent about the threat posed by the coronavirus, there’s no shortage of commentators predicting a crash is imminent.For what it’s worth, I’m also inclined to be more bearish than bullish right now. That said, I’m very aware that trying to predict the direction of markets, at least in the near term, is a waste of time.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…What I can say without any hint of sensationalism however, is that a crash is coming. We just don’t know when.  Regardless of timing, here’s how I’d deal with it. Be preparedThe best way to deal with a market meltdown is to anticipate it: get your finances in such a state that you know you’ll able to ride out any volatility without losing sleep. “Forewarned is forearmed“, as the saying goes.Ultimately, this means checking that the way your money is allocated matches your risk-tolerance. Since they often fall the hardest, there’s no point holding just stocks if you panic at the first whiff of trouble.Stocks should remain the core of your holdings, but a solution would be to increase your exposure to other assets, such as bonds, property, gold and cash. These are unlikely to give you a better result than equities over the very long term, but should help stabilise your portfolio in difficult times.Tweet less, read moreThis isn’t the place for a detailed analysis of the benefits and drawbacks of social media. Notwithstanding this, I do question the usefulness of sites like Twitter and Facebook (and reading highly emotive posts) during market crises. A solution for making it through a meltdown is to read more about how frequent they actually are. Aside from your regular dose of the Fool UK (naturally!), I’d recommend the writings of US psychologist Daniel Crosby — author of ‘The Laws of Wealth‘ — for this. Clearly, the classic thoughts of Warren Buffett and his teacher, Benjamin Graham, are always worth revising.Ditch ‘the twitch’A third recommendation is deleting anything on your phone relating to your investment account(s).Since we’re long-term investors, compulsively checking your holdings through mobile apps is counterproductive but particularly so when the next crash happens. “A watched pot never boils” can be adapted to “a watched pot never boils but continually fretting over your portfolio can breed unnecessary action and reduced returns“. Not quite as catchy, but you get the gist. If you’ve done the groundwork to get things in order, you should be able to stay logged off until the storm passes. Get a watchlistHaving prepared yourself for the worst (and with cash on hand), you can now take steps to profit from a crash as and when it happens. For me, this starts by drawing up a list of stocks I’d want to buy on any share price weakness. To be clear, buying when everyone is selling sounds easy in theory but is very difficult to do in practice. Faced with financial ‘apocalypse’, it’s remarkably easy to forget that stock markets chug higher over time, despite enduring similar crises in the past. Should you be able to rise to the challenge, however, you can be confident that the end result will be worth holding your nerve for.   Paul Summers has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Why I’d buy cheap UK shares today to make a million from the FTSE 100 stock market crash

first_imgWhy I’d buy cheap UK shares today to make a million from the FTSE 100 stock market crash Enter Your Email Address The FTSE 100 stock market crash has caused a wide range of UK shares to trade at low prices. In some cases, they are deserved due to highly challenging operating conditions and weak financial positions. However, other large-cap shares have solid balance sheets and sound growth outlooks that could make them attractive buys for long-term investors.Through using the index’s cyclicality to your advantage, and building a diverse portfolio of high-quality companies, you could increase your chances of making a million from the stock market crash of 2020.5G 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…An uncertain FTSE 100 futureThe FTSE 100 may have rebounded from its lowest point of just under 5,000 points over the last few months, but it continues to trade around 15% down on its 2020 starting price. This suggests that investors are anticipating an uncertain future for the index, which may come to fruition as a result of risks such as a weak economic outlook being present.Therefore, investors who buy shares today may experience paper losses in the short run. The index itself may experience a high degree of volatility as investor sentiment could quickly shift from positive to negative, and vice-versa, depending on news flow.Buying opportunitiesSuch a situation is relatively common for FTSE 100 shares. Even if the economic outlook is positive, as it was earlier this year, exceptional circumstances can arise that lead to falling stock prices and paper losses for investors.However, those circumstances have never lasted in perpetuity. In other words, the stock market has a strong track record of not only recovering from its downturns, but also in delivering new record highs that can offer strong returns for those investors who buy stocks while they are trading at low prices.Furthermore, many UK shares currently have solid financial positions and long-term growth potential. They are likely to survive a period of weaker sales due to their large cash balances and access to liquidity. They may even be able to build a more solid competitive position to increase their market dominance.However, due to weak sentiment towards the FTSE 100 they trade at low prices at the present time. Therefore, buying them today could be a sound move for any investor who is seeking to generate high returns over the coming years.Making a millionThe FTSE 100’s annualised returns of 8% since its inception in 1984 suggest that it offers a sound means of building a seven-figure portfolio over the long run.However, the returns available to investors who buy while the index offers a margin of safety could be much higher than those of the wider market. The additional short-term risks currently present could offer buying opportunities for UK shares that increase your chances of making high returns, and even a £1m+ portfolio, over the long term.

Forget the Bitcoin price! Here’s how I’d invest £10k in shares to achieve financial freedom

first_img 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.

Forget the Bitcoin price! Here’s how I’d invest £10k in shares to achieve financial freedom 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. A plan to invest £10k, or any other amount, in shares could allow an investor to benefit from a likely recovery in the stock market following its 2020 crash. After all, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have always bounced back from their downturns and bear markets to reach new record highs.Since both are trading some way off their 2020 starting prices, there seems to be scope for further capital growth via a stock market rally.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…By contrast, assessing whether the Bitcoin price offers scope for further capital growth is much more difficult. As such, a strategy to invest money in shares could be more attractive from a risk/reward standpoint than buying Bitcoin.Invest £10k in shares: the potential returnsClearly, forecasting the returns on a £10k investment in shares is difficult at the present time. Despite this, the past performance of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 suggests that a high single-digit annual total return is a realistic aim for any investor over the long run.However, it may be possible for an investor to obtain a more attractive rate of return than the wider market through using the stock market’s cycles to their advantage. For example, many shares trade at lower prices now than they did at the start of the year. This is because they’ve not yet recovered from the stock market crash.Over time, investor sentiment is likely to improve, while the operating environments for many companies are likely to strengthen. This could mean they offer greater capital return prospects than the wider stock market.As such, investing £10k in them today may produce above-average returns over the long run. Even if an investor is only able to match the stock market’s rate of growth, a £10k investment could be worth almost £70k within 25 years, assuming an 8% annual return.Achieving financial freedom with shares instead of BitcoinOf course, 8%+ returns on a £10k investment may sound unappealing to some investors after the Bitcoin price has surged higher in recent months. However, the virtual currency carries greater risks than UK shares. For example, it lacks fundamentals and has regulatory threats that could derail its growth.Furthermore, it’s possible to invest money in a wide range of shares to reduce overall risks. A diverse portfolio relies to a lesser extent on a small number of companies for its returns. Therefore, it may offer greater stability and a more dependable return profile over the long run.As such, investing £10k in a diverse portfolio of attractive shares while they trade at low prices could be a sound means of achieving financial freedom in the long run. Now could be an especially worthwhile time to invest. That’s because many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks have yet to fully recover after the 2020 stock market crash. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images.

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 30th May, 2021 | More on: BT-A Enter Your Email Address Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now The BT (LSE: BT.A) share price has been heading higher this year. I think that trend will continue in June as the company pushes ahead with its restructuring plans. Indeed, there are two developments the market should hear more about over the next few weeks that could lead to improved sentiment towards the company and its stock. 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…BT share price outlook The telecoms giant is currently in the middle of an aggressive restructuring programme. It is cutting costs, selling assets and investing more in critical infrastructure assets such as fibre broadband. As part of this ambitious plan, the group is looking for a partner for its sports business. This division has been a blessing and a curse for the company since its founding.It was initially established to help the company take on Sky in the pay-TV market. BT Sport helped the group achieve this aim, but it came at a cost. The firm had to spend billions to keep football broadcasting rights and attract customers. I think this distracted management and diverted funds away from where they were needed elsewhere in the business.We don’t know if BT will sell a share of the division or divest it entirely. Whichever course the company decides to take, it will free up funds.This could be a net positive for the BT share price. We should find out more about a potential deal in the next few months. BT is also looking for partners to help with its fibre broadband rollout. The firm plans to connect 25m homes by 2026 at a potential cost of £15bn.To help fund the buildout, management is looking for a joint venture partner. The company expects to conclude talks with potential partners by September over the terms of a deal, and more details on a possible agreement could emerge in the next few weeks. Nothing is guaranteed I think any news on other of the above deals could send the BT share price higher in June. However, there’s no guarantee the company will issue any updates.In fact, there’s a risk the company’s potential deals may fall apart. That would be very bad news for the business, especially as BT may struggle to fund its spending projects without funding partners.The firm has a considerable amount of debt already, and borrowing more may put its balance sheet under too much stress. Despite these risks and challenges, I would buy the stock for my portfolio today. I think BT’s outlook is improving in general, and no matter what happens at the company over the next few months, I think its long-term outlook is encouraging.Management’s commitment to spend more on infrastructure could stop the customer exodus. Meanwhile, an increasingly digitised economy may only increase demand for the company’s services. last_img read more

A letter from South Africa – May

first_img TAGS: Japan SMIT PLEADS FOR PATIENCE WITH SHARKS FANS IN OPEN LETTEREmbattled Sharks CEO John Smit took to social media to plead for patience to fans in an open letter after the Highlanders smashed the Sharks on their tour opener in Dunedin. The Sharks went down 48-15 for their fourth successive defeat. That on top of lengthy suspensions for Bismarck du Plessis, Jean Deysel and Frans Steyn for foul play.Smit wrote: “There is so much that has been done, not done, said and not said, and along the way, the fans of a team like the Sharks justifiably feel heartbroken, hurt and in desperate need for answers. Everyone wants to know how we have gone from a conference topping team to a team leaking tries and in desperate need of a win; how do seasoned internationals drop balls and why does it seem very difficult to work out what the team strategy is? It’s impossible to dissect each one of the questions out there but having been a player that sadly played a part in some pretty spectacularly bad seasons in 2000 and 2006, I can tell you that the best made plans with the best players can often amount to nothing when a team loses its confidence.”Smit tried his best to be reassuring, but his letter didn’t offer any concrete solutions but rather vague references to “implementing changes” and “leadership.” Smit did trumpet the fact that the Sharks balance sheet is in the black for the first time in years after two years of cost cutting at the union. On the run: Where could Pierre Spies be off to next?CHANGES AT THE BULLSSeveral high profile Bulls players, including No 8 Pierre Spies, wing/scrumhalf Francois Hougaard and former South Africa centre JJ Engelbrecht have been linked to moves to Japanese clubs at the end of the 2015 season. Both Spies and Hougaard are out of contract at the Bulls at the end of the season and neither has been offered a new contract in Pretoria. Bulls backline coach Pieter Rossouw will also quit Loftus at the end of the season. Rossouw, who hails from Cape Town and played his entire career for Western Province, wants to move back to the Mother City so his children can attend high school in the Western Cape. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Physical but struggling: The continued poor form of the Cheetahs has forced Naka Drotske to retire NAKA STEPS DOWNBeleaguered Cheetahs coach Naka Drotske announced in early May that he would retire from coaching at the conclusion of the 2015 Super Rugby season. The Cheetahs have no chance of reaching the play-offs after a dismal campaign that has yielded only four wins in 11 games. Drotske has been at the helm since the tournament expanded to 14 teams in 2006 and the Cheetahs became a stand-alone franchise. At the time of his announcement the Cheetahs had played 141, won 45, lost 93 and drawn three under Drotske for a meagre 31.9% winning ratio. Assistant coach Os du Randt is expected to take up a coaching role in Japan while acting as a Cheetahs “ambassador”. Former Springboks centre Franco Smith has been appointed as Drotske’s successor. Smith guided the University of the Free State (Shimlas) to the 2015 Varsity Cup title.BOK CAMP WAS LIKE A SCENE FROM A HOSPITAL DRAMASpringboks coach Heyneke Meyer’s first Rugby World Cup training squad was hampered by the amount of injuries to players in attendance. The camp began less than 24 hours after two big South African Super Rugby derbies between the Cheetahs versus Stormers and the Bulls against the Lions. As a result less than half the gathered 44-man squad were able to get on to the pitch for field sessions. It resulted in the unusual sight of flank Schalk Burger playing scrumhalf during one particularly haphazard session. If a player had the slightest ache the Boks management didn’t allow him to train. There is tenuous relationship between the Super Rugby franchises and the national team, and Meyer refused to take any chances with player’s health on South Africa national time.Meyer also made the shock announcement that experienced lock Flip van der Merwe, who had been omitted from the training squad, had made himself “unavailable” for the Springboks for “personal reasons”. Van der Merwe was cagey when quizzed on the matter and said that he could “neither confirm or deny” that he was in a contractual dispute with the South African Rugby Union (SARU). The ruling body dismissed suggestions that they were at loggerheads with the veteran lock. A SARU source confirmed that Van der Merwe is not under contract with the union.An option at 9? Schalk Burger in action for the SpringboksPAUL ROOS WIN UNOFFICIAL SCHOOL’S WORLD TITLEPaul Roos Gymnasium recently won the Sanix Rugby Youth Invitational tournament in Japan. The tournament, which crams five matches per team into seven days, has become an unofficial mini World Cup.

Aluminium House / Arhitektid Muru & Pere

first_img Houses Area:  266 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily “COPY” Year:  Photographs:  Tarvo VarresText description provided by the architects. The idea was to have two stories of a different kind of building. The concept was born out of the wrist movement when scribbling on paper. The area allowed for building was very long and narrow due to multiple restrictions. We began piling the rooms in one row at one end until we met the border; then we turned the room itself backwards and that is how the building obtained its current form. Save this picture!© Tarvo VarresThe turning room does not seem to have an end. The intersections between the floors and ceilings are unexpected. In some places the spaces are very simple, and in other places pretty messed up. Save this picture!© Tarvo VarresThe building is covered in aluminium on the exterior, the interior has been designed with plywood and other board materials.
