Don’t waste a second stock market crash! Buy dirt-cheap FTSE 100 shares and retire early

first_img Unfortunately, you cannot rule out a second stock market crash. The pandemic is dragging on, and the recovery could be slow and bumpy.As official figures showed us yesterday, the UK’s GDP fell by an thinkable 19.1% in the three months to May. It grew in May, but only by 1.8%. There is a long, long way to go.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…Worse, as the World Health Organisation has pointed out, the coronavirus hasn’t finished its work yet. More than 12m have been infected worldwide, with 500,000 dead. The true figures are likely to be much higher.The next stock market crash may comeThe UK death toll may be slowing, but there’s another outbreak, this time in Blackburn. The US is also in deep trouble. A market crash would not come entirely out of the blue.I would not expect it to be quite as dramatic as the FTSE 100 crash we saw in March. First, share prices are being buoyed by trillions of dollars in fiscal and monetary stimulus. If we do hit another rocky patch, we may get even more.Investors should not treat a second market crash as the end of the world. Bear markets have a habit of dragging on, for longer than you think. As we saw during the financial crisis in 2008, they can be marked by periods of recovery.If the market does crash again, I suggest you be ready for it. When investors panic and sell up, good companies tend to be dumped alongside the bad. This is a great opportunity to go shopping for bargain-priced FTSE 100 shares.This does not mean you should bank on an immediate recovery. A second crash would shake confidence, and the market may take longer to recover. That is why I would target companies that are likely to be around for the long term.Some FTSE 100 shares to considerI have thought long and hard about investing in airlines, but decided the risks outweigh the potential rewards. The same goes for cruise liners such as Carnival. I don’t mind losing money in the short run, but I don’t want to take major gambles.Personally, I would stick to strong companies like mining giants Anglo American and Rio Tinto, household goods companies Reckitt Benckiser and Unilever, and solid, unspectacular companies like Bunzl and Informa.You will no doubt have a few top FTSE 100 thoughts of your own. A second stock market crash is the ideal time to buy them.Focus on companies you would be glad to hold in 10 or 20 years time. Investing is a long-term game. If you are putting money away for retirement, you have plenty of time for the market to overcome the crash and bounce back.The pandemic will not last forever but you cannot expect an instant economic recovery. What you can do is take advantage of a second stock market crash, by topping up your portfolio. That gives you a real chance of generating enough wealth to get rich and retire early.

Forget gold and Bitcoin. I’d buy bargain UK shares today ahead of a bumper recovery

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The chances of a bumper recovery for UK shares may seem slim at present. Although indexes, such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, have rebounded strongly over recent months, many stocks continue to trade significantly below their previous highs. And risks, such as rising coronavirus cases, are set to persist over coming months.However, buying bargain stocks now for the long term could be a better idea than purchasing other assets, such as Bitcoin and gold. Undervalued shares have the potential to produce high capital returns as the wider stock market recovers.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…Stock market recovery after its crashThe recent market crash, and the potential for a second decline this year, is contributing to bargain valuations among many UK shares. Many investors feel that wide margins of safety are currently required due to heightened risks. And, while there could yet be more volatility and even declines ahead, the reality is that a long-term recovery is very likely.Fiscal and monetary policy stimulus enacted by policymakers in the UK, and in other major economies, could boost asset prices and the wider economy. Although this process may take time, previous economic downturns have always been followed by a return to strong growth.This time may feel different, due to an unprecedented scenario that’s not been experienced for many years, if ever. But major stimulus programmes are already in place and the stock market has a solid track record of recovery. So a return to growth for UK shares is likely to occur in the coming years.Buying bargain UK sharesTherefore, continuing to invest in UK shares while they offer bargain valuations in some cases could prove to be a profitable move. It may allow you to reduce overall risks through obtaining a wide margin of safety. Potentially, you may also benefit from relatively high capital returns as the wider stock market recovers.This means that shares could offer a more favourable outlook than other assets, such as gold and Bitcoin. Certainly, they’ve enjoyed sharp growth of late. However, gold’s price rise may be inhibited by a likely return to more bullish investor sentiment. That makes defensive assets seem less appealing. Furthermore, its price is currently close to a record high, which is in contrast to the low valuations on offer among UK shares.Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s role in the world economy continues to be difficult to predict. Its limited size means it may fail to replace traditional currencies. Meanwhile, regulatory concerns could weigh on its performance in the long run.Therefore, building a portfolio of high-quality stocks while their valuations are low could be a more profitable move for investors. They may yet experience further volatility. But they’re likely to deliver impressive capital returns as the world economy recovers. Image source: Getty Images.

When it comes to FTSE 100 dividend shares, I think there are few better candidates for my diversified portfolio than the one I’ll discuss today. I’m constantly on the lookout for FTSE 100 shares that pay hefty levels of dividend income. 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…And with interest rates near all-time lows, Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE:SLA) and its 8.3% yield look exceptionally attractive to me.Live your best lifeOne of the major points CEOs forget is that people rely on FTSE 100 dividend shares. The income helps to pay our bills in retirement. And it aids those who aren’t there yet to compound their growth in a company shareholding.So when I heard former chief executive Keith Skeoch say in April that Standard Life had a “moral duty” to stick to its word and pay shareholders? It gladdened my heart, even if it did cost the asset management giant £300m. The new chap at the top, Stephen Bird, officially took over in July. Bird joined after heading up the global consumer banking division at Citigroup. In late October he bought 500,000 shares at 217.59p for a total outlay of £1.1m. That’s some statement of intent. With the FTSE 100 dividend shares now around the 260p mark Bird has made a tidy profit. Best FTSE 100 dividend shares? Standard Life remains one of the few FTSE 100 dividend shares to keep its dividend in place in 2020.In Skeoch’s last set of results before stepping down, Standard Life held its interim dividend at the 7.3p per share level. That’s even while pre-tax profits dipped 30% to £195m for the six months to 30 June 2020. And fee-based revenue fell 13%.Investors had turned to lower-risk assets, which meant smaller fees for the asset manager, it said.At an assumed 21.6p per share dividend, based on today’s prices, we’re looking at a yield of 8.3%. That’s good for holders. But is it sustainable? The pressure is on Stephen Bird to strengthen the Standard Life balance sheet. One of the ways the City thinks he might do this is to cut the dividend. But news of the first wave of Covid-19 vaccines has injected some much needed optimism into the FTSE 100. So more investors could feel comfortable seeking better gains at slightly higher risk. I see the medium-term outlook for Standard Life’s fee revenue as stronger than it was.What the future could holdJP Morgan analysts said in a broker note in September that Standard Life could seek extra growth through acquisitions. The investment bank suggested Bird could invest surplus cash from June’s £207m sale of a stake in India-listed HDFC Life. Perhaps to buy up other assets in the Asia Pacific region. That seems like a sensible move to me. Certainly if it helps boost earnings back to previous heights. The company has said it will also complete on its £400m share buyback programme in the second half of 2020. So I see the Standard Life share price growing into 2021 as fewer shares are available on the open market. There are uncertainties ahead with these FTSE 100 dividend shares, I’m not going to lie. But even if Stephen Bird bows to pressure and halves the dividend to more like 4.1%? With the share buyback plan ongoing I would still consider adding Standard Life to my portfolio. It’s going on my watchlist. last_img read more

Three Black members of the national board resigned last month after Brotherhood President Jeff Butcher reacted negatively to the statement proposed by an ad hoc committee of the board.“Our mistakes have caused a loss of trust within the Brotherhood and resulted in the resignations of three valued leaders,” the letter said. “This is a painful indication that we have not lived up to our mission as a Christian brotherhood, and for this we are truly sorry.”The letter was attributed to Butcher, Senior Vice President Jack Hanstein and Dick Hooper, who as national council chairman is responsible for overseeing planning of the organization’s annual meetings. The organization has yet to issue a public statement on Floyd’s killing or the subsequent nationwide protests, but the three top leaders committed the Brotherhood to “a new phase of the journey of truth-telling, learning, listening and ultimately, with God’s help, reconciliation.”As part of that process, they have asked the Rev. Shaneequa Brokenleg, The Episcopal Church’s staff officer for racial reconciliation, to help bolster the Brotherhood of St. Andrew’s antiracism efforts. The church has long called for Episcopalians to engage in that work, most recently through its Becoming Beloved Community framework.“We know the work of building Beloved Community has no finish line and that this work of racial reconciliation is in fact a commitment to a new way of being – as individuals, as Brothers Andrew and as Christians,” the organization’s leaders said in the statement.Those leaders had sounded a conciliatory tone earlier as well, in interviews with Episcopal News Service last month about the board upheaval, though it appears unlikely in the short term to mend relations with the three board members who resigned.“It doesn’t change anything for me with respect to the primary issue,” Joe McDaniel told ENS in an Aug. 4 text message. He had served for about three years as national vice president of the Brotherhood’s racial reconciliation committee until he quit in protest on July 10.The Brotherhood “failed to do the right thing when it had the initial opportunity,” McDaniel said, suggesting the recent letter was a “public relations spin on being caught engaging in racist behavior.”The two others who resigned were Karl Colder, head of the addiction recovery committee, and John Robinson, the Brotherhood’s Province I president.After the three resignations, the Brotherhood of St. Andrew published in its newsletter, The Cross, an article attributed to McDaniel that speaks of “the need for real conversations about racial disparities, inequality and injustice.” McDaniel told ENS he previously had submitted the article and it had been rejected.Internal written communications and interviews with board members revealed disagreements over whether to emphasize the role of systemic racism in Floyd’s killing and how to describe the public protests.The Brotherhood of St. Andrew was founded in 1883 in Chicago, Illinois, and now has more than 350 chapters at Episcopal churches around the United States. Photo: Holy Family Episcopal Church, Fishers, IndianaThe Brotherhood of St. Andrew touts itself as The Episcopal Church’s oldest men’s ministry, with more than 5,000 members and more than 350 chapters in the United States. While maintaining its general focus on prayer, study and service, the Brotherhood under Butcher has restructured its national operations in an effort to be more responsive to its chapters’ needs. As part of that effort, it identified seven core ministry areas, from veterans outreach to human trafficking. Racial reconciliation was among those areas of emphasis.McDaniel, a retired lawyer from Pensacola, Florida, has been a prominent lay leader in efforts churchwide and in the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast to confront The Episcopal Church’s historic complicity in racist systems. But after he was chosen for a national role in the organization in 2017, McDaniel alleged the Brotherhood offered him little financial support or encouragement to expand the antiracism workshops he had been tasked with leading.He also chaired the ad hoc committee that convened July 7 to draft a statement on Floyd and the deep-rooted systemic racism that many say is built into American institutions and social interactions.Butcher responded by suggesting the proposed statement was too political, engaged in “identity politics” and would only fan the flames of division in the United States.The July 30 apology letter doesn’t address Butcher’s specific comments, though it thanks those “who truthfully and courageously pointed out our painful errors.” It doesn’t identify McDaniel, Colder or Robinson by name.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

RIP: Former Central Ecuador Bishop Victor Scantlebury dies at 75

Photo: Vincent Johnson[Diocese of Chicago] The Rt. Rev. Victor Scantlebury, former interim bishop of the Diocese of Central Ecuador, died Dec. 4 at his home in Mississippi at age 75. He previously served as assistant bishop in the Diocese of Chicago from 2000 until 2011.Scantlebury was born and raised in Panama, where he served as an acolyte, choir member, lay reader and Sunday school teacher at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Panama City. He earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Panama, and after four years as a television news cameraman, entered the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Caribbean, earning a Master of Divinity degree in 1973. He was ordained a deacon later that year and a priest in 1974.After serving several parishes, including his childhood congregation, in Panama, he was elected bishop suffragan of Panama in 1991. He became assisting bishop in Mississippi in 1994, and in 2000, Bishop William Persell called him to serve in the Diocese of Chicago, citing his long experience in Panama and his extensive work for the wider Episcopal Church.“During the three years we served together, I came to value Victor’s quick humor, passion for youth ministry, especially in our Latino congregations, and his heart for global mission,” said the Rt. Rev. Jeffrey Lee, bishop of Chicago. “We owe him particular gratitude for the work he did nearly 20 years ago to establish our mission relationship with the Diocese of Southeast Mexico. Victor cherished his time in Chicago and remained an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, a devotion he had held since his days as a television cameraman.“Please pray for Victor’s family, especially his wife, Marcia, their three adult children and beloved grandchildren, as they grieve this sudden loss.

Aperture 538 is a 10 unit multi-family residence located in the neighborhood of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn on Washington Avenue near Fulton Street.Save this picture!© Halstead Property DevelopmentCentral to the exterior is a copper screen, finished to a corten appearance, perforated with an abstracted image of the Brooklyn Bridge and modified for light and air requirements.Save this picture!Third Floor PlanThe flat, warm brown face of the building is meant to continue the rhythm of brownstones present on Washington Avenue.  Unlike the brownstones however, this face moves – shutters in front of windows and balconies can be opened to allow residents direct views out to the tree-lines street.Save this picture!© Halstead Property DevelopmentA code limitation of 10” projection determined the module of the copper panels comprising the façade. The bi-fold shutters are comprised of 1/8” copper on a steel substructure. They pivot and slide along trolleys to open.The result is a dynamic façade where light filters through, an iconic image of Brooklyn is glimpsed, and activity is visible. The remainder of the exterior takes a background role with brown framed windows sliding along the grid of black structurally insulated panels.Save this picture!© Tai ZhangAt the rear of the building, railings are black to match the building’s paneling but are perforated to match the front’s copper screen.Kitchens use a palette of cervaiole, white lacquer, glass, and mystery oak Shinnoki with glassos. Bathrooms have greater variety in material identity and configuration.Save this picture!© Halstead Property DevelopmentThe ground floor duplex and fifth floor penthouse have bold striato tiled Master Bathrooms.Other Master Bathrooms are tiled in carrara and bamboo carrara, ‘bamboo’ referring to its undulating texture. Guest Bathrooms throughout enjoy a neutral warm palette of white glassos and Bamboo Crema d’Orcia.Save this picture!© Tai ZhangFrom the shutters to the bathroom walls, tactility, identity, and warmth permeate the design for the Clinton Hill Residences.Project gallerySee allShow lessMarlon Blackwell on the Importance of Small ProjectsVideos4 Architecturally Inspired Jewelry LinesArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:538 Washington Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

Rising to 22 stories with 78 condominium units, 1399 Park Avenue emerges as a beacon alongside the Park Avenue Railroad viaduct in East Harlem. The sculptural form is composed of architectural concrete, metal, and glass. The building rises through a “Mondrian-like” composition of interlocking cubes and volumes.Save this picture!© Alexander SeverinThe building is a true expression of New York City’s urban design traditions, merging zoning, function, and aesthetics into a singular sculptural form. David West, the project’s lead designer, and premiere NYC zoning expert was the perfect counterpart to a client who encouraged excellence beyond the typical hurdles. Despite its height and size, the building has the ambiance of a boutique residence. The scale of the lobby and the amenities provide all that a resident could hope for without sacrificing a feeling of intimacy. An integral part of the 5th-floor amenity space is a lounge that spills out onto a terrace and seamlessly blends interior and exterior space. Even the furniture defies boundaries as the bar/table/grill element penetrates the glass between the lounge and the terrace.Save this picture!© CorcoranSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© CorcoranThe site’s zoning challenges led to some unique moves that helped to shape the form while also still allowing for function. The building resembles a series of nested cubes suspended from a solid vertical spine. The mass was first informed by zoning needs but then took sculptural form with deliberate manipulation by the designers. A cube hovers above other forms as the central shape around which other forms wrap.Save this picture!© CorcoranSave this picture!© CorcoranLarge exposed columns and a recessed amenity terrace at the 5th floor augment the impression of a hovering cube separated from other forms by voids all around.  Glass surfaces increase as the building rises to allow for views. Private terraces wrap the building at multiple levels and capture spectacular views of a vibrant neighborhood including such hidden gems as the community garden to the south. Hill West created a landmark in the Harlem skyline by combining function and aesthetics in a tower that Harlem can be proud of.Save this picture!© Alexander SeverinProject gallerySee allShow lessA Whale Story Daycare / J.R ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBanfield House / Fabrizio PuglieseSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:1399 Park Ave, New York, NY 10029, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Irish airport authority selects charity

first_img A staff-wide canvass by employees of the Dublin Airport Authority has resulted in the selection of Irish Autism Action as its charity of the year.The DAA has decided to adopt a single charity for a year where its fundraising efforts can make a significant difference rather than making a small difference to several. A voluntary committee has been set up in the company to oversee the various fundraising activities that take place over the year.Last year’s charity of the year, Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, received over €110,000 from the DAA staff fundraising effort.‘Fundraising events can take many shapes and forms; last year we had everything from comedy nights out to cake sales, every little helps and it is always great to see such a positive response from both staff and the general public,’ said charity committee member Ronan O’Reilly.Irish Autism Action was set up in 2001, and has an all-Ireland membership giving support to a significant number of schools and local groups. Boyzone star Keith Duffy, whose daughter has autism, is also heavily involved in promoting the charity.Meanwhile, employees at DHL in Ireland have raised €100,000 for the charity.www.autismireland.ie Tagged with: corporate Ireland AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 6 April 2009 | News Irish airport authority selects charity About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
