The world’s super-wealthy are waiting for the next stock market crash before buying more shares, according to a headline I spotted today. Every investors likes buying cheap FTSE 100 shares, so is this a sensible strategy?I don’t think so. These people may be hugely wealthy, but by holding off until the next phase of the stock market crash, they’re making a basic investment error. They’re trying to time the market. Amd it can’t be done. No matter how wealthy you are, you cannot predict the future like that.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…Of course, the world’s mega-rich investors may be right, and we’ll get another stock market crash. These are strange and volatile times, and Covid-19 isn’t simply going to disappear.I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares todayWe may get a second or third wave of infections after lockdowns are eased. I assume the world’s super-wealthy are holding out for that possibility. Or maybe they expect a sell-off once this is all over, and we can finally assess the long-term economic damage. So it’s perfectly likely that we could see another FTSE 100 crash.My point is you cannot predict it, and shouldn’t wait for it. You don’t know when it will come, or how far share prices will fall. Nobody does.It’s impossible to second-guess stock market movements, no matter how much money you have at your disposal. The variables are simply too great for the human mind to calculate, or any computer for that matter.Forget the next stock market crashAll sensible long-term investors can do is invest, buy shares when they have the money to spare, then hold onto them for as long as they can. That means a minimum five years and, ideally, 20, 30, 40, or 50 years.The only way you can time the market is by investing in cheap FTSE 100 shares after the index has crashed. That way you have hindsight on your side. This is why we on The Fool urge people to go hunting for bargain stocks in the aftermath of a meltdown. History tells us the market will recover in time and, therefore, this is a great opportunity to buy cheap shares.Plenty of people held back from buying shares when the FTSE 100 dipped below 5,000 last month. They were hoping to buy at 4,500, or 4,000. Today, they’re kicking themselves.Don’t wait for a stock market crash to send the FTSE 100 down to a round number in your head. Despite the stock market rebound, the index is still down 23% from January’s high of 7,674. And that looks like a buy signal to me.It means you still have a great opportunity to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares today. The stock market crash has already happened. Turn it to your advantage right now.last_img read more

Every year Warren Buffett releases his shareholder letter. It is publicly available for free online and contains a lot of investing wisdom. Buffett’s long-term investment record is one of the best in history, but his advice is helpful even to novice investors.I have been looking back over some of Buffett’s old shareholder letters to help inform my own investment strategy. Since his last letter, reflecting on Buffett’s wisdom, I sold a holding in a large FTSE 100 company.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…Warren Buffett emphasizes competitive ‘moats’Warren Buffett talks a lot about moats. In medieval times, moats around castles made it harder for attackers to breach the castle ramparts. In investment terms, a competitive advantage can fulfil a similar function. Auto Trader is a good example. With its brand recognition and the network effect of large numbers of buyers and sellers congregating in one place, Auto Trader enjoys a business advantage which it is hard to undermine.Moats matter because they help companies have pricing power and a captive audience.But not all industries have moats. Natural resources is an industry where it can be hard to build a moat. Maybe a certain oil block gives economic advantages – but it’s hard to see a commodity like oil as having unique qualities competitors can’t replicate. Nonetheless, a well-run oil company can still establish some sort of competitive advantage, for example, by running a proprietary network of petrol stations as distribution outlets downstream.When I bought Shell (LSE: RDSA, RDSB), it hadn’t cut its dividend since the Second World War. I was more attracted by that record than I ought to have been. After all, what matters to me as an investor is the likelihood of future dividends, not the certainty of past ones. When it did cut the dividend steeply last year, that hurt me as a dividend lover. I started to assess whether I ought to keep Shell or sell it.I felt management messaging about the dividend was weak. However, Warren Buffett doesn’t always sell shares just because he is unimpressed by management. It’s the business he is more interested in.But I also started to question whether Shell really had a moat going into the future.Renewable energy focusShell, like some other oil companies, has been pushing hard to move from oil and gas to renewable energy sources such as wind. Indeed, the chief executive recently said that Shell would never again reach its previous levels of oil production.But I don’t see where its moat is in green energy. Shell has a lot of expertise in oil, which it has gained over a century. It also has local expertise in areas like the North Sea and Nigeria. By contrast, alternative energy strikes me as a crowded field. Shell’s expertise in energy distribution could offer it a competitive advantage – but that is uncertain. Similarly, the company’s ability to deal with government and regulators in oil may be transferable to alternative energy. On the other hand, it may not work as well there.In short, Shell is reshaping itself in a way which to me looks like it has less of a moat every year. That doesn’t agree with a Warren Buffett-style investment strategy. Like Shell itself, I decided to look elsewhere for new opportunities.center_img christopherruane has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Auto Trader.

Sean Slack gets a flu shot during the Diocese of Pennsylvania’s 2020 vaccine clinic. Photo: Diocese of Pennsylvania[Episcopal News Service] After petitioning to get clergy of all denominations classified as essential workers, the Diocese of Pennsylvania plans to host a clinic to administer COVID-19 vaccines to its clergy and some church employees under the state’s next vaccination phase.The clinic is scheduled to take place on March 13 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Philadelphia. The goal is to get all clergy and essential workers in the diocese’s 134 churches vaccinated, Canon for Communications Jennifer Tucker told Episcopal News Service.St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Photo: Diocese of PennsylvaniaThe diocese expects about 800 people to get vaccinated at the clinic, which will be set up through a partnership with a pharmacy. Four licensed nurses from within the diocese have volunteered to administer the shots.First responders, farmworkers, industrial laborers, grocery store workers, educators and child care workers are up next to receive the vaccine in Pennsylvania. The diocese asked the state in January to ensure that clergy would be included in this phase, which it did.“When I first learned that the vaccines would be available, I was resolute in ensuring that our clergy were included,” Bishop Daniel Gutiérrez told ENS. “I take my role seriously as a pastor to our clergy. … In our diocese, we have a commitment to one another. I will go to any lengths to ensure the clergy and laity of this diocese are protected, served and healthy.”Along with clergy, workers who provide “essential support for houses of worship” are included in the next phase. That designation, Gutiérrez told ENS, covers “the bare minimal staff required on-site in order for worship services to occur.” For example, sextons and organists may qualify, but administrative staff may not, unless their jobs necessitate working in the building with others.“We would love to offer vaccines to all staff,” Gutiérrez said. “However, vaccines are still very limited, and we are in the category of professionals such as police and firefighters who are in constant contact with the community as part of their career.”Gutiérrez said it was important to recognize the urgency of the work that clergy do as they respond to the needs of parishioners who are in physical, emotional and spiritual distress. Such work often puts members of the clergy at high risk for the virus, and they deserve appropriate protection.“The essential ministry of priests and deacons is often forgotten, and they give everything in the service of God and one another,” he said. “We cannot tend to the sick if our clergy are ailing.”While doctors and nurses address the physical toll of COVID-19, clergy have been critical in responding to a parallel public health crisis: depression and other mental illnesses associated with the pandemic.“Our work did not cease in a pandemic. It only increased,” Gutiérrez told ENS. “We witnessed an increase in depression for those isolated – and made house calls at a distance and phone calls throughout the week. We continue to provide last rites to the dying, provide families with closure after laying their loved ones to rest [and] provide pastoral care when our siblings in Christ feel they are at their most vulnerable state.”Once the general public becomes eligible for the vaccine, the diocese and its clergy will encourage people in their communities to get the shot, Gutiérrez said, in keeping with The Episcopal Church’s vaccine promotion initiative, which includes a toolkit for individuals, congregations and ministries to facilitate and promote COVID-19 vaccine distribution.“Our clergy have been leading the push for vaccination, especially among Black and Latino communities,” Gutiérrez said. “Where there is mistrust, our clergy have the presence of faith, trust and care that will assist in easing doubts.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Samaritans create new donor welcome pack

first_imgSamaritans has created a new welcome pack for its regular donors. Designed by engagement marketing agency TDA, it shows how continued support makes a real difference to people’s lives, with the aim of encouraging donors to continue their regular support.The pack includes a booklet entitled ‘Thank you for understanding’ which outlines facts about how many people rely on Samaritans for help, ways in which the charity supports people, and how it relies almost entirely on donations from the public.The pack also features a letter from 23-year old Emma, which is contained in an envelope which reads ‘You don’t know me, but you may have just saved my life’. After experiencing depression and suicidal feelings for a number of years, she tried to take her own life, unaware of the support that was available to her through Samaritans. She now realises the value of their round-the-clock confidential support service.The welcome pack also contains a set of brightly coloured fridge magnets to use and remind them of the good work they are now supporting.“The welcome pack aims to reassure newly recruited regular supporters that they’ve made the right decision, and to demonstrate how their ongoing personal investment can make such a big difference to the work carried out by Samaritans,” said Corinne LeLoup, Senior Account Director at TDA. “We hope that the pack will make people feel proud of the decision they’ve made to support the charity’s work.”www.samaritans.org Tagged with: Individual giving regular giving TDA Howard Lake | 27 April 2011 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Higher Yields with Less Cost

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Higher Yields with Less Cost SHARE Facebook Twitter Higher Yields with Less Cost Sharpening the Pencils Even MoreBill Kissinger,In 2016, growers had to get creative to find ways to  reduce production costs. That same approach will have to be taken in 2017. Corn and soybean farmers especially will have to find ways to produce more with less cost. One way many producers are lowering their costs is by taking a hard look at the traits they purchase for their seed.  Bill Kissinger, regional sales agronomist  with Stine Seeds, suggests you view your trait package like you do your insurance policy, “How much insect pressure to I really have on my farm, so what insect packages do I really need? What herbicide packages do I really need? Can I go back to a convention hybrid or straight glyphosate corn? Guys are really asking these questions and taking this into consideration as they plan for 2017.” He added that many growers are taking a close look at how much risk they are comfortable with and how much protection can they afford to take.Many soybean growers in 2016 looked at lowering their seed population number. Dr. Shawn Casteel has done research showing you can lower your soybean population without hurting yield.Kissinger says there are other factors to consider, “But you also have to look at your soil type and what kind of planters do you have.”  He said you have to weigh the pros and cons of such a move, but, in the end, “You have to have a stand.” He says every farmer and every field is different and suggests working with your seed provider to assess the plans you have for 2017.
