Stock market crash: I’d buy cheap UK shares today to make a passive income

Posted On Jul 5 2021 by

first_img See all posts by Peter Stephens 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. 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. Stock market crash: I’d buy cheap UK shares today to make a passive income “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The stock market crash could provide buying opportunities for investors seeking to make a passive income. Many UK shares now trade at cheap prices. This could mean they offer high yields.With many other mainstream assets now offering low returns due to falling interest rates, FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 dividend shares could be the best means of obtaining a high and growing income in the long run.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…As such, now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of British stocks while investor sentiment is weak.High yields after the stock market crashMany UK shares haven’t yet recovered from the recent stock market crash. Risks such as Brexit and coronavirus are causing investor sentiment to remain weak towards a variety of sectors. As such, high yields are on offer across the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. Many stocks currently offer passive income returns that are significantly greater than their historic averages.In many cases, high-yielding shares have affordable dividends. For example, defensive stocks such as utility companies, tobacco businesses and other companies with solid financial performances continue to have relatively large dividend cover despite a weak economic outlook. Therefore, they could offer a resilient income return. Even if the prospects for many of their index peers deteriorate in the coming months.Furthermore, investors seem to be pricing in the prospect of a second stock market crash over the medium term. This could mean there are margins of safety included in UK shares that may only be available temporarily. Taking advantage of them now could prove to be a sound move. And that’s due to the stock market’s long-term recovery prospects.Making a passive income in 2020Buying UK shares today for a passive income may be a sound move despite the threat of a second stock market crash. There are relatively few other options available to make a worthwhile income in 2020.For example, high house prices mean that the yields on buy-to-let property may be relatively low. That’s especially the case after rising taxes are factored in. Meanwhile, low interest rates are set to remain in place over the coming years. This could mean that bonds and cash lack income appeal to all but those investors who have large sums of capital.Therefore, now could be the right time to capitalise on low valuations and high yields among UK shares after the stock market crash. Of course, diversifying among a wide range of companies could be an important step for all investors to take. It reduces the impact of disappointing performance from one or more companies on your wider portfolio. This may lead to a more robust passive income that can grow over the coming years and improve your financial outlook.

Investigative journalist killed in car bombing

Posted On Jun 19 2021 by

first_img Reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 From CNN   Daphne Caruana Galizia, one of Malta’s best known investigative journalists, was killed after a powerful blast blew up her car, local media reported Monday.  While police would confirm only that the explosion had taken place, Malta Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said based on preliminary evidence, indications are that Caruana Galizia was killed in the explosion.  According to local media, Caruana Galizia was reportedly killed soon after leaving her home in Bidnija, close to Mosta.  Caruana Galizia, 53, was highlighted by politics website Politico as one of 28 individuals who would have a major impact on Europe in 2017 after her work in exposing corruption within Malta’s political scene. Politico described her as “a one-woman WikiLeaks, crusading against untransparency and corruption in Malta.”   In a statement issued in the aftermath of the explosion, Muscat called the incident “barbaric” and said it “goes against civilization and dignity.”“I condemn, without reservations this barbaric attack on a person and on the freedom of expression in our country,” he said in a statement.“Everyone is aware that Ms. Caruana Galizia was one of my harshest critics, politically and personally, as she was for others, too.“However, I can never use, in any way this fact to justify, in any possible way, this barbaric act that goes against civilization and all dignity.”   Galizia was the 27th journalist to die on the job in 2017. She was also widely admired in Europe for her investigative reporting.On Twitter, Antonio Tajani, president of the European Parliament, said Caruana Galizia was a “tragic example” of a journalist who had “sacrificed her life to seek out the truth.”In a statement, Gerard Ryle, director of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists,called upon the Maltese authorities to “investigate the murder and bring the perpetrators to justice.” close dialog An ambulance is parked along the road where a car bomb exploded, killing investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.

It was Caruana Galizia’s story on alleged corruption that led to Muscat calling an early election in June — a vote which he won easily.Caruana Galizia alleged that Muscat’s wife, Michelle, was the owner of a company in Panama and that vast sums of money had been transferred between the company and bank accounts in Azerbaijan.Both Muscat and his wife denied the allegations.In her final blog post, which was uploaded on Monday just 30 minutes before the explosion, Caruana Galizia took aim at opposition lawmakers and labeled the current political situation as “desperate.”Caruana Galizia had enjoyed a successful career in journalism, working for several of the major titles in Malta.   The couple denied the allegations, rejecting accusations they had used secret offshore bank accounts to hide payments from the ruling family of Azerbaijan.

Community Task Force focuses on Youth

Posted On Jun 19 2021 by

first_img Please enter your comment! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter If you ask the young people of Apopka, education is the silver bullet to overcome violence.The Apopka Community Task Force on Violence met last night at The John Bridges Center. Its focus was a young perspective. A group of high school students, college students and 20-somethings met, broke into groups, and delivered authentic and surprising remarks.The first group to present their thoughts believes that only 20-30% of students care about their education, while 20% of teachers aren’t fully engaged.If this is the case, September Porras believes that income plays a role.“The wealth in a community funnels into a school system,” said Porras, a recent graduate of Apopka High School. “Winter Park is a richer community than Apopka. Because of this there are more programs and opportunities at Winter Park High School.”Both groups agreed that while there may be a “One Apopka” attitude, it is still the southside that needs the most attention.“Apopka is divided and that needs to be recognized, said Briana Ciccarino who is a volunteer at Americorps and The Hope Community Center. “Most of the crime is in South Apopka.”The group’s belief is that the high crime rate is due to stereotypes engrained in the minds of society. They returned to the theme of better education as being the best way to overcome this stigma.Co-chairman Rod Love appreciated the focus group’s opinions.“The information we got tonight is invaluable,”he said. “This is the type of candid input we need to deliver the help and resources the community needs.”The Task Force is about halfway through its 90-day term to collect information and then issue recommendations to the City of Apopka and Orange County officials.nIt was formed in April in response to the increase in violence in the Apopka community.Their next event will be on July 14th at The John Bridges Center.

Midweek Madness – James So’oialo and the odd shaped balls

Posted On Jun 18 2021 by

first_imgWednesday Jun 26, 2013 Midweek Madness – James So’oialo and the odd shaped balls One of the biggest talking points of the Springboks vs Samoa game on Saturday was the indecent ball handling by James So’oialo. The Samoan fullback appeared to get to grips with the South African hooker, but he was later cleared of any wrongdoing. As mentioned previously, it was a turbulant game with a lot of big contact, but things crossed the line – or went below the belt – when So’oialo grabbed Adriaan Strauss in the nether regions.Unsurprisingly, hooker Strauss reacted angrily, chasing after the Samoan fullback and calling him what looked like a ‘Fokken poes’ [ask the nearest South African for a translation].After the TMO had a look and described the offence as grabbing a player in an ‘indecent manner’, we might have expected a card to be shown, but So’oialo was only penalised.A citing and disciplinary followed though, and after being charged under Law 10.4(m), committing an act contrary to good sportsmanship, the citing was dismissed after Judge Jeff Blackett (RFU) decided that the contact was accidental. “If I am to uphold this citing I must conclude that the Player has lied to me,” said Judge Blackett.“My assessment of the Player is that he is honest: he immediately accepted that he had grabbed an opponent’s testicles – he did not attempt to dispute that fact – and he said that there is no room in the game for insidious acts. Further there was no attempt to weaken the evidence given by Strauss who himself accepted that there was probably no malicious intention. “In those circumstances I determine on the balance of probabilities that the Player did not intend to squeeze Strauss’s testicles, nor were his actions reckless. “In the dynamic situation of a ruck in which he was attempting to clear out an opponent he attempted to grab hold of his shorts and accidentally grabbed his testicles,” he concluded.It was difficult to see on camera at first, as the comical nature of the whole situation was compounded by the fact that players seemed to get in the way at exactly the right moment.The reaction from Strauss explained a lot though, and the way the South African’s handled it was quite funny to see, as they targeted a high ball on So’oialo directly afterwards.Luckily for him, perhaps deliberately, he dropped it. He left the field a few minutes later.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This is the first time in seven months that the price of softwood lumber fell, and is the largest drop in percentage points since September 2016.One interesting thing about this, reports the NAHB, is that it doesn’t match up with their own data on softwood lumber prices, which showed a drop in price of approximately 1 percent. They attribute this anomaly to two factors: the time between different reports in PPI data, and the different goods included in the specific index.Further, the NAHB’s reported decline is consistent with the Random Lengths Lumber Composite Price (FLCP), which fell 1.3%. They report that if the trend continues, July’s PPI report will correct itself and show an increase in prices.Oriented strand board fell by a marginal amount—0.4 percent. It was the first time since OSB fell in price since December 2016, when they dropped 0.5 percent. The price index, however, on a year-over-year margin, remains 20.9 percent higher, and has risen 15.2 percent from the beginning of 2017 to the end of May.Gypsum prices, conversely, have increased 1.3 percent after making a small decline a month prior, where they fell 0.2 percent and have since stabilized. Gypsum prices have fluctuated as much as 10 points.The seasonally-adjusted price of ready-mix concrete also increased in June by 0.4 percent, which is in line with its average since 2000, during which time prices increased by 0.3 percent in almost every month.The economy-wide PPI saw some movement in June (0.1 percent) after staying stagnant a month prior.

Gallery: Newfield cub scouts and girl scouts place flags by veteran graves

Posted On May 25 2021 by

first_img Corri Haus, committee chair of Cub Scout Pack 34, having the kids help place flags Saturday teaches them to respect their communities. They also placed flags at a cemetery in Newfield last week. One of the organizers Saturday and member of Tompkins County Probation, Bill Apgar said it was a great opportunity for the youth cub scouts to get a chance to serve the community. Also with family who served in the military, Apgar said, “It’s just something we should do.” The group Saturday was one of several that made sure all cemeteries in Tompkins County had flags place by veterans’ graves ahead of Memorial Day. Services and parades are planned across the county to honor the people who died serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. The VFW supplied flags and equipment, but because they didn’t have enough people to make it to all the cemeteries, groups like Cub Scout Pack 34 in Newfield stepped in to help. Kelsey O’Connor ITHACA, N.Y. — On Saturday, a group of community members came together to honor the men and women who served in the military by making sure every veteran buried in Calvary Cemetery in Ithaca had a flag by their grave site. The group was a mix of cub scouts and girl scouts from Newfield, members of Tompkins County Probation, Cornell Police and others. By the dozens of flags planted along the rows of the cemetery after the kids worked their way through, it was clear how many men and women buried there served in the military. Calvary Cemetery, located on Five Mile Drive in Ithaca, and was originally purchased in 1915. Some people buried there were born as early as the mid-1800s. Memorial Day 2019: Parades, ceremonies and events in Tompkins County For anyone in the Newfield or Enfield area interested in learning more about the cub scouts, Cub Scout Pack 34 is holding a recruitment and information night at 6 p.m. Monday, June 3, in the Newfield Elementary School cafeteria. For more information, visit View photos from Saturday’s flag placing below.

After a quick demonstration, they fanned out with their parents and cub scout leaders to find graves that needed flags. As the kids would plant the flags, they would pause to read the names and salute them as they placed the flag into the ground. last_img read more
