Kevin Godbold | Monday, 17th August, 2020 I reckon it’s a great time to think about investing money in the stock market, even if you’re doing it for the first time.We arguably saw the worst of the current recession during the second quarter of the year. And the stock market crash in the spring blew the froth from share prices and knocked down, or out, some of the weaker companies.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…Why I’d start investing money in the stock marketThere’s been a shake-up since, with strong players adapting to a Covid-19 environment well. Those companies’ shares have been bouncing back. Others still languish. Generally, I reckon the stock market has got most things ‘right’ since the crash, and most shares are where they ‘should’ be.It’s worth considering that bull runs begin at the bottom of bear moves. And the re-setting we’ve seen has cleared the way for strong businesses to thrive from here. Meanwhile, in the real UK economy, several shorter-term challenges could recede soon.For example, the UK will have completed its free trade agreement negotiations with the European Union by the end of the year. And the long-running saga of Brexit may begin to fade. On top of that, the world may see a vaccine for Covid-19 soon.If you invest for the long-term you’ll have a tailwind behind you. Indeed, over timescales measured in decades, the trajectory of the stock market has always been up. So the prospects for investors look good over short and long timescales.And I’d begin by building a bedrock in my portfolio of tracker funds and investment trusts. But with a little bit of investing experience under my belt, I’d aim for even higher returns by choosing the shares of individual companies.One overriding considerationSome investors focus on the cheapness of valuations before anything else. If you look at fallen share prices and see low earnings multiples and high dividend yields, you’re looking at cheap shares. Or if earnings have ‘temporarily’ plunged because of a short-term event – such as the current pandemic – we could deem a share cheap just because it’s fallen.Another approach involves looking for shares that are leading the market and trading at new highs. Often, operational progress in the underlying business drives those stocks higher and the strength could flag a strong underlying business. A third approach ignores share price movements altogether and focuses on dividend yields. The idea is to collect and compound dividend income rather than to rely on share price movements to deliver a capital gain.All those investment strategies can be successful. But I reckon one consideration overrides all others when selecting shares – quality. Indeed, Warren Buffett aims to buy what he describes as “wonderful” businesses to hold for the long term. He’s focusing on the quality of the underlying enterprise above all other considerations. And I reckon that’s the safest and most effective way to approach investing.

The Premier Oil share price is crashing again: should you buy or sell?

The Premier Oil (LSE: PMO) share price fell by more than 20% in early trading on Thursday. The fall came after the North Sea firm reported a $672m loss for the first half of 2020 and announced plans to raise up to $530m by selling new shares.In my last piece on Premier I warned that shareholders buying this stock faced significant risks. Today, I’m going to review the latest figures and explain why I still think this is a stock most investors should avoid, despite the potential for gains.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…A super operatorI’ve always rated Premier as a good operator. Today’s results confirm that impression. Production during the first half of the year was on target at 67,300 boepd (barrels of oil equivalent per day). The firm’s full-year guidance of 65,000-70,000 boepd is unchanged.Low operating costs of $18 per barrel mean Premier still generated operating cash flow of $324m during the first half, despite March’s historic oil price crash.Existing projects are progressing well and the acquisition of the Andrews Area and Shearwater assets from BP has been approved by lenders. These fields should add another 19,000 boepd of production.Given all of this, why isn’t the Premier Oil share price rising? And why aren’t I buying?Shareholders must stump up at least $325mThe first half of the year was incredibly tough for oil producers. But Premier still managed to generate $25m of surplus cash. This was used to chivvy down the group’s net debt, from $1.99bn to $1.97bn.Unfortunately, fiddling around the edges like this won’t be enough to allow Premier to repay its debts by the current deadline of May 2021. The group isn’t generating enough cash to fund the $230m upfront payment required for the BP deal either.Given all of this, today’s news of yet another refinancing isn’t a complete surprise. To extend the maturity of its loans to March 2025 and complete the BP deal, Premier will try to raise up to $530m by selling new shares. A minimum of $325m will be required for the refinancing to go ahead.Why the Premier Oil share price could keep fallingAssuming it’s approved in a formal vote by the group’s lenders, I think this refinancing deal should secure Premier’s future for the next few years.However, the deal will see the average interest rate on Premier’s debt rise by 1.4% to 8.34%. My sums suggest that interest payments alone will cost around $165m per year. That’s around $13 for every $100 of revenue, based on 2021 forecasts. Debt costs like this aren’t likely to leave much profit for shareholders, unless oil prices rise sharply.Shareholders are also facing heavy dilution. At the last-seen share price of 27p, Premier’s market-cap is just £265m, or around $345m. Given that Premier has to raise at least $325m from shareholders, I think we can expect the group’s share count to double, at least.If shareholders refuse to provide the new cash, the group could go into administration. That would send Premier’s share price to zero pence.This stock will probably remain volatile over the next year. But, in my view, this situation is far too risky for most investors. It’s certainly a stock I’ll be avoiding. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Stock market crash: a 6.3%-yielding UK share I’d buy in an ISA in November

first_img It’s been another tough few days for share investors as the Covid-19 crisis worsens. The spiking infection rate means another UK-wide lockdown lasting at least a month comes in this Thursday. Similar barriers are being put up and travel restrictions imposed across other major parts of the globe too. It’s quite possible that UK share prices have further to fall in the short-to-medium term.I’m not yanking my hair out in terror though. As a long-term investor, periods of extreme volatility like we’ve been seeing in 2020 won’t stop people like me from making big returns. Those who buy and hold UK shares for 10 years and more make an average yearly return of 8-10%, history shows us.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…In fact, heavy stock market falls like those of recent days provide a brilliant buying opportunity for UK share investors. It allows us to pick up quality stocks at low prices, stocks that will surge in value when market confidence recovers.A top dip buyThere are stacks of brilliant UK shares that appear too cheap to miss today. And there are some in particular that have caught my eye as we move into November. These stocks could rebound sooner rather than later as I expect them to publish positive trading updates in the coming days.Warehouse REIT (LSE: WHR) is one such stock on my watchlist today. This UK share recently closed at five-month lows, giving eagle-eyed dip-buyers a chance to nip in. Indeed, today is a particularly good time to buy with half-year results slated for tomorrow (3 November). I’m anticipating another set of sunny financials.This AIM company isn’t totally immune to these challenging economic conditions. But, as a major provider of logistics and warehousing spaces, it’s benefitted from the stunning growth of e-commerce in 2020. As a consequence, it collected 94% of rents for the June quarter, its last update showed. Furthermore, Warehouse REIT’s list of blue-chip tenants like Amazon and Argos can be relied on to keep rents rolling in.A UK share with BIG dividendsWarehouse REIT also has mountains of cash to cover any near-term troubles on the rent front. It’s this balance sheet strength that makes the UK share such a terrific dividend stock as well.City analysts reckon annual earnings will drop 12% in the current fiscal year (to March 2021). Yet they reckon the business has the financial robustness to keep raising dividends. And this results in a monster 6% dividend yield.Finally, with annual earnings predicted to rebound 27% in fiscal 2022, annual dividends are unsurprisingly expected to spike again. And this nudges the yield to a handsome 6.3%. But don’t just think of this UK share as a dividend hero. A healthy balance sheet means that Warehouse REIT is also investing heavily in its estate to drive future profits growth too.This is one UK share I’d buy today and hold for years to come. But it’s not the only dividend hero I’d add to my ISA right now. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Bitcoin’s price is almost $40k! But I’d still follow Warren Buffett’s advice in 2021

But I’d still follow Warren Buffett’s advice in 2021 Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images Over the past few weeks, Bitcoin’s price has skyrocketed to almost $40,000, yet Warren Buffett continues to oppose the cryptocurrency. His views on the digital currency were made perfectly clear after stating: “I don’t own any cryptocurrency and I never will.”But why exactly is Buffett not interested? Let’s take a closer look.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 vs the Bitcoin priceWhen looking to invest in anything, Warren Buffett seeks out something that creates value. Just like gold, Bitcoin doesn’t ‘do’ anything. It doesn’t provide any products or services as a business does. With no underlying fundamentals, It seems to me that the value of Bitcoin is entirely subjective. In other words, the price is driven by what the next person is willing to pay for it.A more concerning aspect of the cryptocurrency is the lack of regulation. As such, it’s common and perfectly legal to artificially inflate the price of Bitcoin through ‘pump & dump’ schemes. Put simply, this is where a large group of individuals ‘pump’ up hype through publicity after buying a large portion of a cryptocurrency. When it reaches a specific price, they ‘dump’ their position and often crash the price in the process. Such practises are illegal in the stock market.Investing in undervalued UK sharesWarren Buffett’s net worth today is approximately $86bn. He built his fortune by employing the simple strategy of buying high-quality businesses at low prices. More specifically, looking for stocks whose share price has fallen due to short-term problems but that could recover and thrive over the long term.When the pandemic struck the UK markets in early 2020, many great businesses saw their share prices slashed. Industries such as travel and entertainment were especially hard hit by the disruptions. However, some stocks whose operations were temporarily impacted have since returned to pre-Covid levels of output. Yet their share prices remain low.Needless to say, I think there are still plenty of opportunities in 2021 to buy shares in high-quality businesses.The bottom line: is Warren Buffett right?Only time will tell whether Warren Buffett’s view of cryptocurrencies is correct. The thought that Bitcoin’s price might keep climbing forever does make it seem very attractive. But it’s a gamble I’m not willing to take. After all, we could be in the middle of a pump & dump scheme right now.Meanwhile, the UK market remains seriously undervalued, in my opinion. The FTSE 100 continues to trade at pre-Covid levels, despite the vast majority of businesses in the index becoming well adapted to the new environment.With so many great stocks trading at discounted prices, the opportunities to grow my wealth seem endless. I could, of course, be wrong. The price of Bitcoin might continue to climb higher. But I’d rather stick to a strategy proven to work for decades, than gamble with an intangible asset.last_img read more

God’s image is everywhere in the Diocese of Jerusalem

first_img Tags Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Submit a Job Listing [Episcopal News Service] Last fall, I took a group of pilgrims to see the holy sites and the work of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. The trip was sponsored by the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. What inspired our group the most was the steadfastness of those – Christian, Muslim and Jew – serving, and being served, by the health and education institutions of the diocese, as well as the work being done in and through its parishes.We saw God in the image of the young blind teacher at the Arab Episcopal School in Irbid, Jordan, holding the hands of a tiny blind girl while teaching her to read. The teacher had been trained in that very school and returned to pass on the gift of reading that she had learned there.We saw God in another young blind girl standing shyly but bravely before our group of pilgrims to sing us a song she had written in gratitude for the love of her parents and the love of the school, which was nurturing her into a full life.We also saw God in our faithful Anglican brothers and sisters of the Diocese of Jerusalem, as they struggle for human dignity in a situation that could rob them of their own agency. However, because of the strength of their faith in God’s love for all humanity, as expressed today by the church, they are able to reach out in hospitality and acceptance of others, including ourselves from the U.S., and be teachers, healers and reconcilers. God is teaching us all through them what a new humanity could look like. We are called to suffer and stand with the people of the Diocese of Jerusalem in order to know what our strength and power is to be people who passionately love life, each other and the God who made us.I have heard the principal of St. George’s School in East Jerusalem say that when he wants to find a person well-trained, tolerant and open-minded to work with, he intentionally looks for someone who went to an Anglican school. This is because schools in the diocese teach both Muslim and Christian children, both the Koran and the Bible. Technical schools prepare students to work in their local communities. A sense of dignity is restored to young Christian people when these institutions are known in the community as part of the Diocese of Jerusalem. The Diocese of Jerusalem also plays an important role in calling interfaith meetings and in bringing communities, particularly Muslim and Christian, together to live in harmony.The Holy Land is a place dear to God’s heart. Muslims, Christians and Jews love the city of Jerusalem. God’s presence is left behind there through the historic holy sites of the three Abrahamic siblings. These sites move us deeply to know better God’s intent at different times in history. For centuries, Jerusalem has been sacred to peoples as the “Center of the World.” This relationship between faiths and a place is a mysterious happening. The land has called to people through many ages to seek the will of God. I believe that we are called to the Holy Land today to join the people there so that we with them can undergo the transformation to become the humanity God desires.I believe that God has chosen this place. It shapes people into the people that God yearns for us to be. In the mix of intensely held beliefs and points of view, there is a call to find common ground where diversity is valued and life is lived under the banner of love. It is all there, leaders of sacred and secular institutions and faithful people. All of us of good will are trying to work it out, but we just don’t have it right yet.The American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem has been deeply involved with the Diocese of Jerusalem since 1985. Through these decades of close association, AFEDJ has become the organization in the Episcopal Church that best knows our family in the Holy Land, its leadership, its people. Our work there is vital.Political change may not come soon. I am not without hope; however, I do not see signs that a life of all together in peace is within reach, given the current position of the Israeli government and policies of the U.S. government. What I do see is that we, as a church, are called to do everything we can to support our brothers and sisters in Christ during this very difficult time in their history. We do not know how to solve the problem, but we must not walk away. Each of us must carefully discern what we are called to do to help the diocese — the region — right now, and for the long haul as well. In these days, we have opportunity to work as we are each called with the burning hope that peace will be a reality. I pray we will continue, in strength and with God’s grace, to participate in that work.— Phoebe Griswold is an AFEDJ advisory board member and its outgoing president.

Fake Facebook message warns users not to accept Jayden K Smith…

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter A fake Facebook warning is urging users not avoid accepting a friend request from a user named Jayden K Smith because he is a hacker. Longer versions of this hoax claim accepting the user will result in your account getting hacked. Please enter your comment!

Smith! He is a hacker and if you accept, you and all your friends will be hacked!!!!!This appears to be the latest in a string of fake hacker warnings, none of which have any validity. Such warnings are popular on social media – those that warn of a nefarious hacker who will compromise your security should you accept them into your digital life.And as we have stated a number of times, such warnings make little sense. You cannot be “hacked” just for accepting friend requests, and if such warnings were true, why wouldn’t Facebook remove such offending accounts before such warnings had a chance to go viral?These types of warnings have been around long before Facebook, affecting users of now defunct services such as MSN Messenger, where users would pass on warnings of Phantom Messenger hackers trying to add themselves to your contact list. Such warnings were equally as spurious as their more recent Facebook counterparts.Only last week of the date of this article another fake hacker warning was being spread warning of a hacker called Anwar Jitou, and much of these current warnings are penned exactly the same only with the name of the alleged perpetrator changed. It is likely that many of these warnings start as jokes but take a life of their own when users take them too seriously.With that said, adding strangers on Facebook isn’t a good idea, and can potentially lead to compromising your privacy and your security, albeit not in the manner described in this warning. Accepting strangers gives them access to more of your personal information which can lead to issues such as identity theft. We outline some reasons to avoid accepting strangers on Facebook in our article here. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Gov.

The 370 sqm residence distributed in two levels is situated in a manly residential neighborhood in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, on a 450 sqm flat site. The architectural approach seeks to privilege the maximum integration of external and internal areas, mixing up their boundaries, and, then amplifying the feeling of wideness.Save this picture!Courtesy of anastasia arquitetosRecommended ProductsCeramicsApariciPorcelain Tiles – TangoDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalDoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorDue to the reduced size of the site, residual and crossing spaces were practically left out (for example, there is no entrance hall, in behalf of a visual permeability with the entrance garden, achieved through large pivotal doors in the facade). Save this picture!Courtesy of anastasia arquitetosThe floor plan is rectangular and compact, stretching till the site’s sidelines. Save this picture!PlanThe rooms are illuminated by large doors front and back facades and also by matted glass locking (u-glass that acts as a good thermal insulation due to the existence of an air layer between the glass sheets) between the lagged cover labs. A glass cover over a concrete pergola complements the illumination through an indoor garden. Therefore, the house is flooded by zenithal and indirect natural light that besides avoiding artificial lighting during the day, also avoids excessive heat from direct sunlight. The prevailing wind comes from the street, thus the entering doors work as regulators of wind speed. Totally opened in the summer, praise cross ventilation, or closed in the winter, or even semi opened if little ventilation is desired. Save this picture!Courtesy of anastasia arquitetosThe residence was established in the street level, one meter above natural ground, in order to avoid unevenness and improve accessibility of the social areas. And, it also let the house more protected from the soil moisture. It is important to remind that one of the reasons for the implantation of compact field, reducing its footprint, was to increase the permeability of the ground, something really needed in our cities. Solar collectors (that meet the house and the pool) occupy the most of the cover slab which prevented the use of this area initially contemplated. Save this picture!Courtesy of anastasia arquitetosDue to the large spans desired, supported by few points of foundation, and also to the large porch swing, the upper walls are concrete beams built by ripped forms of wood left apparent. Its aesthetics comes from a structural option, hence follows that it is not decorative. This structural gymnastics was important, as the support pillars on the porch would be contrary to the intention of integration between interior/exterior desired. Save this picture!SectionThe result was a light weighted residence (despite its aesthetics of exposed concrete), lighted and ventilated, with pleasant and proportional spaces that put into to practice the initial desire to the best possible use of external area.
