Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Thomas Carr Enter Your Email Address The stock market has crashed. The FTSE 100 is down around 30% in the last three weeks. These are uncertain and disturbing times. The effect of the global response to the Covid-19 outbreak is without precedent, at least since the Second World War.But amidst the panic and hysteria, I believe that the stock market has now presented the kind of buying opportunities that come about once in a generation.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…Sure, company earnings will fall massively, for this year at least. It’s hard to imagine that many companies are going to be able to break even, let alone register profit growth. Some industries and companies with weak balance sheets will suffer tremendously, the most vulnerable will even go out of business. The global economy will probably go into recession. But it’s important to keep perspective.The world will go onThe virus does not represent a threat to the future of humanity, despite the tragedy of the deaths so far and those to come. Likewise, the future of capitalism is also not in danger. Businesses and the stock market will continue to be at the centre of the human world.The way that we value investments is also not going to change. The value of a company can be derived from its future cash flows and from its book value (or net asset value). While interest rates are low, companies that generate positive earnings returns will continue to be sought after.Before the stock market crash, the average UK stock traded at around 17 times last year’s earnings. By definition, this means that one year’s earnings make up just one seventeenth of a company’s valuation, or around 6%. If the effect of the virus is to eliminate this year’s profits, then share prices should only have fallen by this amount. Even if we assume that companies will suffer big losses for this year, it still doesn’t correlate to the stock market falls that we have seen.It’s my belief that this is not the time to sell your stocks. That time was before the virus struck. Investors do not possess crystal balls. We can’t predict when we are going to hit the bottom of the crisis. Trying to do so is likely to result in missing any bounce completely.Long-term investment opportunityIf you have cash to invest and have a long-term investment horizon (at least five years) then this could prove to be a great time to buy. I would be hugely surprised, if in five years’ time, share prices are not well above where they are now.If we look back to the global financial crisis of 2008, the FTSE 100 fell by 30% in just over a month. Investors who bought the index at that time, would have had a gain of around 93% since (if measured before the start of the current crash). Investors who waited another three years to invest, would have had a gain of just 26%.In the US, the S&P 500 recovered its entire loss (of 50%) in less than a year. Since the lows of that stock market crash, the US index has risen almost 400%, even after including the latest falls.While it may be natural human behaviour to want to sell stocks at this scary time, I believe this is now the time to buy instead. The stock market has crashed! Why I’d buy shares now Thomas Carr | Monday, 16th March, 2020

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I believe investment trusts are one of the best ways to invest in the market, especially if one is looking for a passive income. Unlike other funds, investment trusts operate as companies. This means they have a level of flexibility regarding how much income they can distribute to investors as dividends. The structure also gives these businesses more flexibility for choosing investments.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…Most investment trusts focus on stocks and shares, but some own commercial property, precious metals, private equity, hedge funds and even renewable energy assets. Another quirk of the investment trust structure is the ability to hold back a percentage of income every year. This enables investment trusts to hold back revenue in the good times to cover dividend payouts when the going gets tough. This proved extremely helpful in 2020 when many blue-chip companies slashed their dividends. Investment trusts were able to dig into their dividend reserves to cover shareholder payouts.So, with that in mind, here are two investment trusts I would buy today to retire on a rising, passive income. Passive income investments There are a handful of investment trusts that have maintained their dividends for several decades. One of these is the City of London Trust (LSE: CTY). This firm prides itself on its dividend track record. It has maintained the distribution to investors since 1966. At the time of writing, the trust provides a dividend yield of 5.1%. To cover this income stream, it owns a portfolio of blue-chip income stocks. Some 86% of the portfolio is invested in UK equities, with the remainder spread worldwide to provide a level of diversification. As well as targeting a steady stream of income, the trust also aims to achieve a level of capital growth every year. It has been relatively successful on this front, achieving a total return of nearly 100% over the past 10 years. As long as the investment management sticks to the strategy that has been so successful over the past decade during the next 10 years, I think City of London could be one of the best investments to own when looking to build a passive income stream. Growth and incomeWith a dividend yield of 6.4% of the time of writing, the Value & Income Trust (LSE: VIN) could be another option for passive income investors like me. This trust uses an interesting model to generate income for its shareholders. Some 41% of the portfolio is invested directly in property across the UK. This provides exposure to the asset class and an uncorrelated income stream. The rest of the portfolio is invested in high-quality blue-chip stocks.As such, investors receive the best of both worlds. Income from high-quality global dividends and a steady stream of income from property here in the UK. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, Value & Income’s exposure to UK property has become a bit of a liability. Investors have dumped the stock as a result. It’s now trading at a discount of 23% to its underlying net asset value. However, I think this could be a great opportunity for long-term investors seeking a passive income to buy up a portfolio of high-quality income-generating assets at a discount. It’s on my watchlist.

“COPY” CopyWiel Arets Architects (WAA) has revealed plans for a mixed-use “Bahrain Bay Tower” in Manama. Reaching heights up to 170-meters, the project is comprised of two residential towers connected by a plinth of retail, office, parking and public park space. “The plinth’s ground floor is publicly accessible and is mostly composed of retail and public lobby space,” says WAA. “Due to a division of these ground floor spaces, along the site’s southern edge, a breezeway was created that allows the public to traverse the tower’s entire site – without entering its interior – which serves to infuse the tower’s immediate context with pedestrian life. In this way, the ground level frontages of the tower’s retail spaces are maximized.”Save this picture!© Wiel Arets ArchitectsRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsThe tower will offer a range of housing options, from one- to three-bedroom units. Circulation is designed so that each unit has two walls of glazing and operable windows that allow ample access to light and air in each living space. “Due to the extensive amounts of glazing on the tower’s façade, a panel-like system of sliding aluminum louvers serves as an additional layer of privacy and shading – in tandem with the façade’s treated glass, and the covered exterior terraces. Together, these elements protect the tower’s interior from passive solar gain, while the louvers lend to the tower, an ever changing and thus chameleon- like appearance, due to the reflections they catch from direct sunlight.”Save this picture!© Wiel Arets ArchitectsArchitectsWiel Arets ArchitectsLocationManama, BahrainProject TeamWiel Arets, Joris van den Hoogen, Jochem HommingaCollaboratorsJan Beelen, Rogier JansenClientWafra Real Estate, KuwaitConsultantsPace Architecture Engineering & Planning, KuwaitArea53900.0 sqmProject Year2015PhotographsWiel Arets ArchitectsLocationManama, BahrainProject Year2015PhotographsCourtesy of Wiel Arets ArchitectsArea53900.0 m2Project gallerySee allShow lessLACES / CoA ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsAalborg Waterfront Phase II / C.F.

Appearing as a chocolate bar standing amid the green paddy fields, the Black House, though without ostentatious decorations and an eye-catching commercial sign, is a house full of surprises and wonders.Save this picture!© Highlite ImagesWith the aim to own its brand image of quality life, the Black House is an idea and ideal realized by three siblings of a family and a designer, Po-Lin Chen, affiliated with Chic Design Inc. The original concept of the Black House was a venue for hospitality, parties, and wine tasting.

The International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee has launched an urgent appeal for funds to support legal efforts to free this Native political prisoner, who has been held in U.S. dungeons for nearly 45 years. Peltier is a leader of the American Indian Movement, who was framed and jailed for the 1975 deaths of two FBI agents who had invaded the Jumping Bull compound on Pine Ridge Reservation and started a shootout at dawn, over a warrant for alleged theft of a pair of cowboy boots. (tinyurl.com/y4ncc5ee) FBI intervention had increased following the 1973 AIM-led occupation of the town of Wounded Knee, site of the 1890 U.S. 7th Cavalry’s massacre of Big Foot’s Band of 300 Lakota, who were starving and struggling in blizzard conditions to reach the new reservation and surrender.The ILPDC strategy is three-pronged. First, at Peltier’s request, lawyers will be working to get him transferred closer to his family on the Turtle Mountain Reservation in North Dakota. Second, his legal team will continue to work on a possible parole hearing for early summer. Third, the attorney in Peltier’s first-amendment case in Seattle, Wash., is prepared for trial this summer.Despite strong support by former U.S. Attorney James Reynolds, 55 members of Congress and international dignitaries including Bishop Desmond Tutu, the U.S. government refuses to release Peltier, whose health is rapidly failing after more than four decades of incarceration.To make a donation to Peltier’s legal effort and to support his campaign for freedom, please go to the ILPDC Facebook Page (facebook.com/PeltierHQ/) and to the fundraiser.

RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia to go further News Organisation April 10, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 RSF urges president to investigate murder of radio station employee News News May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Colombia Receive email alerts ColombiaAmericas April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en RSF expressed its great concern today about the murder, reportedly by paramilitary forces, of a radio station employee in Colombia and called on the country’s president, Andrés Pastrana, to urgently investigate the incident. RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard, in a letter to Pastrana in the wake of what he called “this cowardly murder,” renewed his appeal for the government to strengthen its programme for the protection of journalists and noted that the victim’s journalist father had since received death threats. RSF learns that the journalist, Juan Carlos Gómez, of the radio station La Voz de Aguachica, in the northeastern province of César, was kidnapped on 1 April by a group of armed men from the home of a friend, Oscar Guerrero, who was also kidnapped. Two days later, the disembowelled corpse of Gómez was found floating in the Magdalena river, near the village of Puerto Mosquito. He had been tortured and his hands were tied together. The body of 18-year-old Guerrero was found on 5 April.The murders were attributed to the paramilitary United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia (AUC) but the reason for them remained unclear. The Inter-American Press Association said the kidnappers had wanted to take Guerrero and Gómez had been seized as well because he tried to stop them. Others suggested Gómez was killed because he had read on the air a message of condolences from Horacio Serpa, the Liberal Party candidate in the 26 May presidential elections, on the death of a local party figure. The daily El Tiempo reported on 6 April that paramilitaries in Aguachica had threatened to kill anyone who campaigned for candidates other than the independent Alvaro Uribe, who is currently ahead in public opinion polls.However, La Voz de Aguachica’s news editor, Fredy Alfonso Carvajalino, told RSF that Gómez was a technician at the station and had not broadcast anything. He had worked on a daily music and news programme called “Noches Romanticas” which went out between 8 and 10 pm. He had been hired six weeks earlier at the recommendation of his father, Luis Alejandro Gómez, who has been a journalist with the station for nearly 30 years and has received death threats for having suggested the AUC was involved in the death of his son. The radio is part of the national network of the RCN media group.RSF and the Peruvian Press and Society Institute (IPYS) said in a report last November that press freedom in Colombia was mainly threatened by the fighting between the AUC and the guerrilla forces of the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) and the National Liberation Army (ELN). About 40 journalists have been killed in the country over the last decade.However, RSF strongly cautions against linking the murder of journalists in Colombia with their work. Of the 13 journalists killed there last year, four had not worked as journalists for several months previously and RSF considers that only three were probably murdered because of their work. The six other cases are still being investigated. With an average of four journalists killed every year, Colombia is one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists.The leaders of the three armed groups fighting in Colombia – Carlos Castaño (AUC), Manuel Marulanda (FARC) and Nicolas Rodríguez Bautista (ELN) – are among the 37 people on RSF’s worldwide list of “predators of press freedom.” October 21, 2020 Find out more 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Reports Help by sharing this information ColombiaAmericas RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America

Facebook 1 of 3 Facebook By admin – April 28, 2018 Texas Rangers Hall of Famer Jim Sundberg will headline the third Annual FCA Impact Scholarship Awards that hands out $22,000 in scholarship funds to area athletes.Sundberg is a six time America League Gold Glove Winner and the 1985 World Series Champion. He is scheduled to speak during the Permian Basin FCA event that recognizes graduating senior athletes, coaches and FCA volunteers who have impacted the Permian Basin.The $22,000 in scholarship awards will go to 16 male and female athletes including two who will be named male and female impact players of the year during the 7 p.m. Wednesday event at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.FCA officials said the group is a valuable part of the Permian Basin because of its unique purpose, which is to lead every coach and athlete into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Hall of famer speaks Wednesday Pinterest Twitter fca logo.jpg Kaitlin Belcher, executive administrative assistant for the FCA, stated in an email that athletes spend a large part of their high school careers on a field, court or diamond honing their skills. “Sports can form a person in a unique way, FCA wants to reach those athletes while they practice and play, and while their coaches are able to have a significant influence on them. By giving coaches and athletes the opportunity to talk about their faith, FCA is able to foster that mentor/mentee relationship that is more than just sport, it’s about the overall character of the athlete and their faith.”Belcher said Sundberg, who is a former Texas Ranger catcher, is still hailed to this day as a top defensive player in major league baseball. “He carried his faith to every game, playing for the Kansas City Royals and helping the club take home the 1985 World Series,” Belcher’s email detailed.During his 35 year career with major league baseball he led the American League record for most games caught in a season with 155 games, his record still stands. He is in the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and has won six consecutive Gold Gloves.Sundberg was on the executive team of the Texas Rangers as senior executive vice president where he worked closely with Nolan Ryan.Throughout his career he cared for his wife of 43 years and family, and maintained his faith. He is now the chairman of the board for FCA Dallas. “We are certain he will live up to his notoriety as a great speaker of his life in sports and his faith.”Belcher said this event celebrates the community’s top athletes and celebrates their accomplishments. “So that they will be encouraged to continue the life and character they have led thus far as they move off and begin college.”Athletes are nominated by either a coach or mentor from the community, likely a pastor. They are then required to have a recommendation completed from a teacher or mentor. Athletes receive a $1,000 scholarship to be sent to the college or university of their choosing.
