Be fearful when others are greedy”. This is what the Oracle of Omaha once famously said to his shareholders.Buffett’s investmentShortly after the Lehman Brothers’ collapse Buffett bought top blue-chip securities, including those of Goldman Sachs and Bank of America.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…That time was really tough for banks, and many were close to going bankrupt. Central banks all over the world cut interest rates, to zero in some cases. Governments bailed out major banks and took extreme fiscal measures to save their national economies.Buffett’s investment paid off very nicely. He took advantage of the panic and bought ‘too big to fail’ banks at record low prices. Bank of America’s shares became almost 10 times more expensive since the Great Recession. Goldman Sachs’s stock appreciated more than five times.Crisis causesThe causes of the 2008–2009 crisis were totally different from today’s market sell-off.The main reasons were the mortgage crisis and the reckless investment methods banks, insurance companies, and hedge funds were using. There were very high levels of personal and corporate debt. Moreover, many investment companies clearly lacked proper diversification.The situation in the US had a dramatic effect on other countries, including the UK. This was due to many financial organisations having exposure to high-risk US mortgage-backed securities.   Today’s market panicToday, we find ourselves in a similar panic situation, although the causes of this sell-off are different. Shares of major banks have plunged. The UK government announced a £330bn support package for small businesses and said that it is prepared “to do whatever it takes”.The Bank of England also announced that it would provide commercial banks with £190bn in extra money to ensure they have sufficient liquidity and are able to support small businesses.The share prices of the banks I will mention below reacted positively after this decision was announced. However, they quickly erased all their gains, as coronavirus panic and a no-deal Brexit fears hang in the air. Nonetheless, the Bank of England’s willingness to support the financial sector is encouraging.Top banksI think the banks mentioned below have merit as investments, despite the current difficult situation, because they are sure to survive:Lloyds’ recent earnings were a bit discouraging. But this resulted from one-off charges relating to payment protection insurance. The bank has been aggressively cutting costs by closing some offices, reducing staff, and encouraging customers to access the banks’ services online. These measures, of course, will also help during this coronavirus crisis.The bank’s price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is near a record low of 8. The dividend yield is now close to 10%, and the share price is hovering near a 52-week low.HSBC came up with a restructuring plan and recently appointed a new CEO of its business in China. The bank’s earnings decreased by more than 50% in 2019 compared to the year before. However, the P/E is almost 17 and the dividend of 50 GBX is not adequately covered by 2019 earnings of 30 GBX per share.Barclays is the only one of the three whose earnings increased between 2018 and 2019. EPS (earnings per share) rose from 21.9 to 24.4 GBX, making the P/E ratio a little bit over 3. The current dividend yield is 12%. The bank considers its cost-cutting initiative to be its top priority. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The Standard Life share price is up 34% in 6 months. Should I buy now?

first_img Enter Your Email Address UK stocks have taken a hit over the last year with the impact of the pandemic, but many have recovered recently as part of a stock market rally. Whether this rally can be sustained or is part of a bubble is up for debate, but I still see opportunities in the market at the moment.During turbulent times, I tend to look towards companies with a long and stable history of weathering difficult economic conditions. There are few in the FTSE 100 that have been around as long as Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE:SLA).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…The Standard Life share price is now 34% higher than it was six months ago. While the shares have only gained 1% in 12 months, given the overall state of the Footsie during that time the shares’ performance is better than average.So would I buy Standard Life shares today for my portfolio?Strong and stableStandard Life has been around a long time. The company was first founded in 1825 and provides asset management, insurance, and savings services to both individuals and corporate bodies.Historically speaking, the company has not provided great long-term returns for investors. The share price has returned a loss over the last five years despite its recent rally. Investors don’t seem to have been convinced by the 2017 merger between Standard Life and Aberdeen Asset Management.Costs and competition have both been rising over the last number of years, which haven’t exactly helped the company’s bottom line. Profits for the company’s first half last year were 30% lower than the year before.So what has been driving the Standard Life share price higher in recent months?Broker actionOne reason could be that analysts at both JP Morgan and Berenberg upgraded their broker recommendations for the company. JP Morgan said there were several opportunities to close the ‘value gap’ between Standard Life and its competitors, including a reduction in dividends. The company currently has one of the highest dividend yields in the FTSE 100 at roughly 7%.Berenberg analysts also recommended a dividend cut so the company can focus on earnings growth, while upgrading the stock to ‘buy’ from ‘hold’.Important decisions will need to be made by new CEO Stephen Bird. Standard Life clearly needs to focus more on growth, but cutting the dividend could put off potential investors as well. How the new management deals with that dilemma will have an impact on the share price going forward.There is the potential for mergers and acquisitions to fuel growth, and management has indicated that it will consider this option.That said, I will need more convincing of the company’s ability to drive the share price higher in the long term. A key metric for Standard Life is assets under management, which has been falling for some time. Its most recent earnings report had their assets under management at £511bn.Until this heads in the right direction I won’t be buying the Standard Life share price for my portfolio. The Standard Life share price is up 34% in 6 months. Should I buy now? conorcoyle has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom  “If advertisers make the video disco channel a success, the implications for cable television and the recording industry could be far reaching,” wrote a New York Times business columnist in the summer of 1981 about the upcoming premiere of a new cable television network dedicated exclusively to popular music. This prediction proved to be an understatement of historic proportions, though not exactly overnight.Though the premiere of MTV on this day in 1981 would later be seen as the beginning of a whole new era in popular culture, only a few thousand night-owl subscribers to a single northern New Jersey cable system were able to witness the televised revolution.It was just after midnight in the early morning hours of August 1, 1981, that the fledgling Music Television network flickered to life. “Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll” were the words that preceded on opening montage featuring a chunky guitar riff playing over the familiar image of an American astronaut planting an unfamiliar flag on the surface of the moon—a flag emblazoned with a big, block capital “M” and the smaller, handwritten letters “TV.”The video that followed was, famously and prophetically, “Video Killed The Radio Star” by the little-known English electronic new wave duo, the Buggles. Pat Benatar’s “You Better Run” followed, and from there a rotation that featured several songs and videos that might be considered classics of the early MTV era (e.g., “Rapture” by Blondie and “Love Stinks” by the J. Geils Band) and many more that might not (e.g., “Can’t Happen Here” by Rainbow and “Little Susie’s On The Up” by PhD).The roughly 80 different videos that made up that first week’s rotation on MTV probably represented nearly every promotional music video then available. This would change, of course, as MTV proved its ability to break new artists and as record labels responded with ever larger budgets for lavish video productions. But on that first night, as several employees of the fledgling MTV gathered to watch their creation in a New Jersey bar, it is impossible to say how many others actually joined them.Soon enough, however, MTV would spread to cable systems nationwide and begin to exert the cultural influence that has since been credited (or blamed) for everything from Flashdance and Miami Vice to Rick Astley and Attention Deficit Disorder.For more on this day in history, go here.

The Ross Skeate Diary – So close, yet so far

first_imgThursday May 20, 2010 The Ross Skeate Diary – So close, yet so far Following the epic Top 14 semi final against Clermont, Toulon’s Ross Skeate gives us a report-back on what it was like to come up second in such an incredibly close game of rugby. The Challenge Cup final against Cardiff Blues is next though. We’ve come so far, only to stumble at the final hurdle! What a magic season, only to run out of fairy dust when we needed it most. How close was it, running into extra time and nearly coming away with the victory via Gabi Lovobalvu’s try attempt at the death? How amazing would it have been to come from behind fighting a 10-point deficit? How amazing would it be to be preparing for a Top 14 final?Sadly it was not to be though, and admittedly it was our own errors that let us down on the day. Some people may highlight the refereeing decisions or a few turns of luck that went against us (that freakish drop kick of Brock James comes to mind). But for me it was our own mistakes, our own lack of execution of our first phase that let us down and a few decision-making errors. But mainly our first phase problems.To win championships, a team needs to have certain facets to their game. Somewhat bland to be sure but extremely important. Winning things like the World Cup for example, needs a completely watertight first phase, backed up by an excellent defence and kicking game. Some of these things are not what we excelled at during our semi clash.Thats why sides such as the Boks and the Bulls have done so well in recent times, namely because of a powerful pack guaranteeing their backline quality ball on the front foot and the boot of the flyhalves taking control of the game afterwards.Even the successful 2003 World Cup Winning English team had these very qualities in spades. Often it is the side that plays the least but controls the game the best through their clinical execution that translates into success, even though they do cop a little criticism in the process. If you win though, who honestly cares?Fighting back to 22-all at fulltime was a huge achievement in the context of the game. Jonnys penalty to get us there was amazing and just the reason that we signed him. Extra time though was gut-wrenching and we just couldnt take our chance at the end.But although it was our own mistakes, it was also our fiery ambition that nearly meant the game was ours despite the mistakes we made. Had we been bested soundly by a better side, I would have more reservations about the experience. Had we been completely out of our depth and been easily beaten by the Clermont side, which has not only been together for a number of years but made it to numerous semi-finals together, I would be scratching my head now.But happily that was not the case, our mistakes and our failings on the day are the type that can be rectified and polished with enough experience together and enough maturity as a team. And because we are so fresh to each other, these things will follow quicker than I expect.Certainly we didn’t play semi-final rugby, or at least not the type of semi-final rugby that catapults teams into finals. But we did fight tooth and nail for every inch on that field. I think Clermont can count themselves lucky in some ways.There was a noticeable sigh of relief breathed by all there players after the encounter, but they can also feel that they deserved the victory in the way that they used their experience and attention to details to do what they needed to. At the end of the day they are the ones heading to the final.I am proud of the season we have put together up until this point but its not over yet with the Final of the Challenge Cup this Sunday against the Cardiff Blues.But what we have achieved as a team after assembling as a unit for our first season, is so encouraging for what lies ahead for this group! The bond that the team shows off the field, meals together and other social high-jinks the norm, is so evident on it. It showed up at every turn as we fought the deficit and tackled and played for one another and glory.So onwards and upwards and weve been given another chance as towards greater things we strive. Every player in our squad is focused on winning this weekend’s final, using what lessons we learnt last weekend to our benefit.After getting that close last week were craving a little silverware on the Var.See you all soon.Skeato _______________________________________________________________________________ Having played for Western Province, the Stormers, the Emerging Springboks, the Barbarians, and Toulon in the Top 14, Ross has gathered a wealth of experience both on and off the pitch.

This house is a tower rising above the rolling topography of its cherry orchard site, peering outwards toward spectacular westward views of Lake Michigan and the surrounding agricultural landscape. The site is minimally disturbed, other than the mounding of two earthen enclosures adjacent to the tower, created from the excavated earth of the foundation and offering a ground to contrast the tower experience above the treescape. Due to the slope of the site, the family enters at the third level, descending down to the kids’ bedrooms and bath or moving up to the main living spaces which look out over the orchards to Lake Michigan.

To help mask the scale, the building is wrapped in a skirting wall of recycled translucent polyethelene slats, standing two feet out from the galvanized sheet metal cladding of the wall surface on aluminum frames that serve also as window washing platforms and emergency exit ladders. The translucent polyethylene material set out over the dully reflective wall cladding is chosen for its ability to gather the light and color of its landscape, dissolving the finely shadowed and haloed structure into the seasonal color cycle of snow, ice and black twig tracery; pale pink blossom clouds; pollen green leaf and grass; golden straw and vivid foliage. The double skin creates a micro-climate and thermal differential around the structure creating a rippling mirage updraft that in the summer sends steaming condensation or in the winter drips melting icicles.

Remember A Charity campaign targets professional will providers

The campaign’s theme is “Without you, your clients will never know all the choices available to them”.The consortium aims to help professionals give clients the option to leave a gift to their favourite charity. Advertisementcenter_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The campaign gets underway this month with adverts in two 2010 directories frequently used by will providers: The Law Society Gazette’s Charity Appeals Directory and The Probate Yearbook.The adverts have been developed by strategic creative agency Touch DDB. The advert suggests that “If you don’t mention charity, we’re almost invisible”, and asks the will provider to “Help their clients see us [charities] as an option”.Remember A Charity commissioned research among solicitors and will writers to inform its campaign. Amongst other findings, the research found a definite correlation between the average proportion of wills including a charitable gift and the prompting of clients to consider a charitable gift by the will provider.The campaign forms the basis of a new range of activity supported by a dedicated campaign staff member who will be responsible for maximising the influence of the campaign with this group. Remember A Charity will be measuring the success of the campaign by annual tracking of will providers’ attitudes and behaviours to charitable gifts in wills, in particular the frequency of solicitors and will writers prompting their clients.Stephen George, Chair of Remember A Charity and Development Director for Legacies at NSPCC said: “This is an exciting new phase of our work with a key group of people who can make a real difference to donors and charities. Working with will providers and helping them give choice to clients is good for them, their customers and our causes.”www.rememberacharity.org.uk Remember A Charity campaign targets professional will providerslast_img read more

Three reporters freed but physical attacks on journalists continue

We urge the Afghan authorities to investigate the abductions and the cases of violence in order to identify those responsible.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We again call for measures to be taken to guarantee the safety of journalists and we urge all parties to the fighting to finally implement the recommendations we made in the mission report we issued last March.”In the most recent incident, Noorin TV journalist Nasto Naderi was attacked and badly beaten yesterday by members of the security forces and was detained for several hours at his place of work.Abdul-Ahad, the Guardian’s correspondent, and the two Afghan journalists accompanying him, who have not been named, were kidnapped on 11 December after travelling to Kunar province to interview militants. They were finally released after six days.Reporter Nasir Ahmad and cameraman Sibghatullah of the privately-owned TV station Sepehr were preparing a report in Kabul on 3 December when they were beaten and then kidnapped for several hours by gunmen acting on the orders of Abdolbassir Mahbobi, one of the leaders of the “Islamic Revolution Movement.” Their equipment was also damaged.Although a complaint was filed by the TV station and the two journalists, no measures have been taken against their assailants.Read the 16 March mission report: http://www.rsf.org/spip.php?page=article&id_article=30588 AfghanistanAsia – Pacific News Help by sharing this information Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Follow the news on Afghanistan Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says Organisation Newslast_img read more

By forcing the government media to campaign against the opposition, the president is putting journalists in danger, because they are being associated with him and his allies.“The continuing ban on media visits to the north and the violence against state TV journalists at a meeting held by the opposition United National Party bode ill for the climate in which these elections will take place,” Reporters Without Borders warned.Seven journalists working for state TV stations Rupavahini and ITN were slightly injured and their equipment was damaged when they were manhandled outside the location where the UNP had been holding a convention in Colombo on 5 December. UNP parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake told Reporters Without Borders his party was not involved in the violence. At the same time, he confirmed that the journalists had not been invited to the meeting.“As long as the state media continue to give a biased account of our activities, we will not invite them,” Karunanayake said. “We provided accreditation to about 100 journalists for this event and no one complained of any violence.” The opposition has even accused the government of orchestrating the incident for political purposes.Reporters Without Borders added: “Opposition supporters may well be exasperated by the state media’s extremely biased coverage of political developments, but this kind of violence undermines their message.”Media and information minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa called a news conference to express the government’s “anger” about the incident, which the police are investigating. His condemnation came just days after the government extended a ban on media visits to the north of the country, where tens of thousands of Tamil civilians have just been allowed to leave detention camps.The three main Tamil dailies in Jaffna received threatening letters on 24 November accusing them of playing into the hands of the “terrorists.”The Tamil journalist J.S. Tissainayagam must also be released before the elections, as there was no hard evidence to support his conviction and his detention therefore threatens the freedom of expression of all Tamil journalists.
