Stock market crash: how I’d identify must-own UK shares to buy in an ISA to make me a million

first_img 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. Stock market crash: how I’d identify must-own UK shares to buy in an ISA to make me a million Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address The stock market crash has caused a large number of UK shares to trade at low prices. While some of them may never recover from their current low valuations, others could offer long-term recovery potential.Through buying a diverse range of high-quality businesses, an investor like me could generate market-beating returns in the long run. I may even be able to build a portfolio valued at over a million as the market experiences a likely recovery from this year’s decline over the coming years.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…Identifying must-own UK shares after the stock market crashThe threat of a second stock market crash means that investors may wish to focus on UK shares that have solid financial positions. This means that they have a higher chance of surviving what could prove to be a tough economic period that may last for a prolonged period of time.As such, checking a company’s balance sheet may be a good starting point for any ISA investor like me. It provides guidance on the company’s debt levels, cash position and how solid its financial standing could be if sales decline due to a weak economic outlook. Similarly, analysing a company’s ability to service its interest payments via its interest coverage ratio could provide guidance as to how easily it can withstand a period of weaker financial performance.Understanding the prospects for FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 sharesThe stock market crash means that the prospects for many UK shares have changed significantly in recent months. While it is difficult to know how FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares will perform in the near term, some characteristics may provide guidance as to the chances of them being able to deliver a successful recovery.For example, businesses with dominant market positions may find that they are less impacted by a weak economic period in the long run than their peers. Similarly, companies with strong brand loyalty, low costs relative to competitors and more flexible business models that can become more efficient at a fast pace could deliver stronger financial performances.Buying such companies after the stock market crash may seem like a risky move. However, understanding business models could lead to less risk and higher long-term returns.Making a millionThe task of making a million may now be easier after the stock market crash. Many UK shares have wide margins of safety that could lead to higher returns than those reported by the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 in the past.Even if an investor attains only the same 8% annual return that the FTSE 100 has managed in its 36-year history, a £100,000 investment could be worth seven figures within 30 years. Investing money while share prices are low may reduce that amount of time and lead to greater long-term prosperity for ISA investors.

Is Warren Buffett already planning for the next market crash?

first_img 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.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Peter Stephens | Friday, 15th January, 2021 Warren Buffett has always held a large amount of cash. However, in 2020, his cash pile reached a record level of around $137bn.Alongside Berkshire Hathaway’s purchase of gold miner Barrick Gold, this suggested to some investors that the Oracle of Omaha was readying himself for the next stock market crash.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…However, subsequent sales of shares in the gold miner and a long history of holding vast amounts of cash indicate Buffett is permanently ready to capitalise on the next market downturn.Following a similar approach could be very worthwhile for all investors. By holding cash, and identifying high-quality companies ahead of a bear market, it’s possible for an investor to use market cycles to their advantage.Warren Buffett’s large cash resourcesBuffett’s likely to hold cash for two main reasons. Firstly, it provides peace of mind. An investor who’s not fully invested is more able to overcome unforeseen financial challenges that would otherwise force them to sell shares. For example, they may lose their job or have unexpected housing repair costs that require immediate access to cash.The second reason to hold cash is to capitalise on market downturns. The stock market is almost inevitably going to experience a major crash over the coming years. After all, its past performance shows the market rally experienced in the second half of 2020 will eventually run out of steam.Some crisis or threat will cause investor sentiment to deteriorate. Inevitably, that will lead to significantly lower stock price valuations.Investors such as Buffett will be in a financial position to capitalise on them. As the 2020 stock market crash showed, the window of opportunity to buy companies at low prices can be relatively short.Identifying high-quality companies ahead of a market crashAs well as following Warren Buffett in holding large amounts of cash, identifying high-quality companies ahead of a market crash could be a sound move. For example, an investor may be able to find a number of businesses that have solid financial positions and competitive advantages. However, they may trade at prices that lack a margin of safety.Keeping tabs on the financial performance and developments of such companies can be a sound move. It will enable an investor to be in a position to understand a business comprehensively. That means they can quickly react to a short-term decline in its share price.This may allow them to buy high-quality companies at low prices. Over the long run, such a strategy can be highly effective in generating market-beating returns.Planning for the next market downturnWarren Buffett appears to be in a constant state of preparedness for the next stock market crash. His large cash position means he can invest quickly and decisively in a market downturn. An investor who puts themselves in the same position through holding cash and identifying high-quality companies today could generate impressive returns in a stock market rally. 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.

El ministerio para motociclistas llega a una población desatendida

first_imgEl ministerio para motociclistas llega a una población desatendida Rector Belleville, IL AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Job Listing [Episcopal News Service] El Rdo. canónigo William Geisler (“Jay”) ha bautizado durante un mitin de motociclistas, ha celebrado bodas con la pareja vestida con trajes de cuero negro y ha provocado vítores cuando dijo a los dolientes [de un funeral] que “sólo hay dos clases de motociclistas: los que han caído y los que caerán”.“Alguien se levantó [en un funeral] y preguntó ‘¿dónde está Billy?’ y yo comencé a hablar del amor de Dios por todos nosotros. Les dije que él está con Dios, por supuesto”, recordaba Geisler durante una entrevista reciente. “Todo el mundo prorrumpió en aplausos de júbilo, porque a ellos les han dicho que son malas personas”.Geisler, un entusiasta motociclista de 57 años y rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s Episcopal Church] en Pittsburgh, se dio cuenta de la necesidad de un ministerio para motociclistas luego de que uno de estos le dijera: “usted no sabe lo que es parecerse a Frankenstein y tener el corazón de Shirley Temple”.Él y otros sacerdotes motociclistas dicen que su amor por las motocicletas ha abierto nuevas vías para proclamar el Evangelio a una comunidad ignorada y desatendida.Misas de motocicletas en MarylandEl Rdo. Steve McCarty se sintió inspirado a comenzar un ministerio de motocicletas luego que otro motociclista le preguntara sobre el escudo episcopal que él lleva en su chaqueta.“Le dije, ‘sí, soy un sacerdote episcopal’”, recordaba McCarty, motociclista desde los 16 años. “Pasamos hora y media conversando acerca de su fe y de cómo lo habían excluido de la iglesia en la que estaba, cómo no lo aceptaron, y que él creía que no era lo bastante bueno para ir allí.El Rdo. Steve McCarty, sacerdote motociclista y vicario de la iglesia de San Andrés en Clear Springs, Maryland. Foto de la Diócesis Episcopal de Maryland.“Él conocía la Escritura. Me dijo, ‘necesito algún lugar donde pueda ser aceptado tal como soy’. Yo pensé que podría hacer algo al respecto”, dijo McCarty, vicario de la iglesia de San Andrés [St. Andrew’s Church] en Clear Springs, Maryland.Empezó a celebrar misas de motocicletas un sábado por la noche al mes en junio de 2012 en la iglesia de San Marcos [St. Mark’s Church] en Lappans. Los oficios han llegado a tener hasta unos 30 feligreses regulares.Después de la eucaristía, “si el tiempo es bueno, hacemos una carrerita hasta algún lugar para comer”, agregó McCarty, de 53 años y policía estatal jubilado de Maryland.No todos los que asisten al oficio de motocicletas una vez al mes son motociclistas, pero todas las ofrendas —que se recogen en un casco de motocicleta— se donan a bancos de alimentos, albergues y otras agencias benéficas locales que ayudan a la comunidad.McCarty, que usa una Harley Davidson, dice que ha podido levantar una “buena comunidad” por tener también un quiosco en los mítines de motociclistas de la localidad. “La gente se acerca —tipos tatuados de pies a cabeza— y dicen que habían intentado encontrar una iglesia que los aceptara, pero que las iglesias siempre les dicen que se cubran los tatuajes.“Un tipo me dijo, ‘yo tengo tatuajes, pero mi alma no está tatuada. Me pidió una bendición y le dije que sí, que puedo dársela”.Él ha llegado a ser conocido como el “sacerdote motociclista” y bromeando reconoce que a veces habla el llamado “lenguaje Harley”. Sin embargo, las apariencias pueden ser engañosas. Su barba y su bigote con frecuencia “alejan a la gente”, añadió McCarty. Es divertido. Y a veces, sabes, me da material para sermones, al estilo de no juzguéis”.Para Geisler, el haber pasado tiempo en la cárcel es “una cosa buena” para su ministerio de motocicletas porque lo hace “mucho más humano” para su rebaño, dice.El nativo de Pittsburgh es un ex obrero siderúrgico y ex sacerdote catolicorromano, que fue encarcelado en los años ochenta en las protestas por el cierre de las acerías  y la pérdida de beneficios y empleos de los trabajadores. Sacerdote episcopal desde 1999 y motociclista por casi 40 años, su ministerio ha crecido debido a que los “motociclistas conocen a otros motociclistas”.Al igual que McCarty, él dice que un sello de su iglesia en su motocicleta BMW a menudo suscita curiosidad y conduce a peticiones de cuidado pastoral.“Con frecuencia me contactan para hacer funerales para motociclistas que se han alienado de la iglesia”, dijo durante una reciente entrevista telefónica para ENS. “Intento llevarle al público la proclamación del Evangelio en su lengua”.Describiéndoles a los deudos, en un funeral reciente, cómo sería el infierno, les dijo: sería como si estuvieran en medio de la lluvia, completamente solo con una moto y que no pudieran echarla a andar. Y ustedes lo siguen intentando, pero no arranca y se sienten frustrados”.Por otra parte, “el cielo es un lugar donde todos estamos juntos como familia y celebrando todas las cosas que disfrutamos”.Geisler, y su congregación, son una serie de contradicciones. La iglesia mezcla riqueza y pobreza, privilegio y marginalidad, lo urbano y lo suburbano. “Hay personas aquí con dinero y educación, y otros con picardía de la calle”, agrega. “Tengo inmigrantes de Rumania, refugiados de la antigua Yugoslavia y un grupo de Etiopía”.Él oficia en una bendición anual de las motos y también es mentor de clérigos nuevos, entre ellos el Rdo. Frank Yesko, psicólogo y entusiasta de las Harley. Yesko fue ordenado el 15 de junio y comenzará a servir como diácono encargado de la iglesia de San Bernabé [St Barnabas] en Breckenridge, Pensilvania, en Septiembre.“Ha sido una trayectoria increíble”, dijo Yesko, de 56 años y profesor de psicología de una universidad comunitaria, quien reconoció que la mentoría de Geisler impulsó lo que podría haber sido un improbable camino a la ordenación.“Según seguí desarrollándome y nos acercamos más, lo consideré mi mentor o consejero espiritual”, recordaba. “Comencé a estar activo en la iglesia, y eso ha ido creciendo cada vez más”.Él ve su motocicleta como “un vehículo para llegar a otros. Intento ser receptivo en lo que concierne a la oportunidad de servir a Dios”, afirmó.“Trato de no descartar ninguna posibilidad. Creo que servir a Dios abarca la totalidad de mi vida, incluido el andar en motocicleta. El romper esos estereotipos es una forma maravillosa de servir a Dios”.‘Aleluyas de Harley’ en MississippiLa Rda. Ann Whitaker dice que le echa de menos el dirigir sus misas de motociclistas ahora que ha pasado a servir de la iglesia episcopal del Creador [Episcopal Church of the Creator] en Clinton, Mississippi, a la iglesia de San Pedro [St. Peter’s] en Oxford.“Creo que extrañamos algo cuando no lo ofrecemos, hay muchísimos motociclistas ahí afuera”, dijo ella durante una reciente entrevista telefónica desde Oxford.Ella no es motociclista, pero hizo un recorrido de 241 kilómetros a la grupa de uno de ellos en 2008. “Me hizo recordar al Espíritu Santo” rememoraba Whitaker en una reflexión que tituló “Aleluyas de Harley”.“Al principio, sólo quería sujetarme de las barras laterales. No podía ver por encima de Pete Jr., o alrededor de él y ciertamente no a través de él. Si yo iba a disfrutar el paseo, sencillamente tenía que confiar en que él me mantendría segura”, escribió ella.Su marido iba detrás de ellos en un auto durante todo el trayecto, pero “sólo una vez me sentí realmente insegura. Un camión cargado de troncos que venía en dirección contraria provocó un viento fortísimo; más tarde me reía y decía que todavía me estaba sacando astillas de la cara”,  contaba en su texto. “Era asombroso lo distinto que huelen las cosas en el asiento trasero de una moto en plena carretera; ¡en verdad percibes el olor del bosque en esos camiones de troncos de una manera cercana y personal! Al adentrarnos en Vicksburg, el olor a tocino frito se sentía a lo largo del camino”.“Vi muchos paralelos en este lugar de donde tenemos que confiar en Dios con todas las fibras de nuestro ser”, añadió Whitaker en una reciente entrevista con ENS. “Tuve que aprender a no luchar con él. Si él se inclinaba hacia la derecha en el momento de doblar una curva, yo tenía que inclinarme con él; de lo contrario nos hubieran barrido”.La experiencia también suscitó interrogantes sobre “¿cómo atraer a personas que no están vinculadas a ninguna iglesia?”, dijo Whitaker. “¿Cómo atraer a personas que podrían no sentarse regularmente en la iglesia el domingo por la mañana y qué tienen que decirnos? Ello tiene mucho que decir respecto a la manera en que encontramos a Dios”.‘Bendición de ruedas’ en OahuEl 25 de agosto, el Rdo. Paul Klitzke bendijo ruedas de todas clases —patinetas, patines, bicicletas, autos, furgonetas, motos e incluso un andador— en la iglesia de San Nicolás [St. Nicholas Church] Kapolei [en la isla de Oahu], en la Diócesis Episcopal de Hawái.Klitzke, de 33 años, cree que, si bien sus tatuajes y su Kawasaki Vulcan pueden “cambiar en algo al público y la dinámica en la Iglesia, fundamentalmente sirven para abrir la puerta del diálogo con toda clase de personas. Eso me da la oportunidad de conocer a gente que de otro modo no conocería”.Comenzó a rodar motos “gracias a un tipo de mi iglesia” mientras servía en la diócesis de Alaska. “Me dijo que si tomaba el curso básico de conducir, me prestaba una moto para que empezara”.Él tiene tatuajes de: una cruz de Jerusalén; un triqueta, que simboliza la Trinidad; un árbol de la vida y una paloma, [esta última] en representación del Espíritu Santo. “Luego este año le añadí alrededor de la cruz, para representar los cuatro evangelios, los símbolos de los evangelistas: una persona alada [Mateo], un toro alado [Lucas], un león alado [Marcos] y un águila [Juan]”, explicó.Tanto sus tatuajes como su moto suelen ser motivos para iniciar una conversación y para eliminar estereotipos.“Con frecuencia, la gente se sorprende de oír que soy sacerdote”, recuerda él. “Me hablan porque les gustan mis tatuajes o porque ando en moto. Es un sentido diferente de comunidad, pero cuando me preguntan por mis tatuajes me están preguntando acerca de mi relación con Dios, y quieran o no, inician una conversación acerca de la Iglesia y de la fe.Ambas cosas ayuda a disipar estereotipos.“El mundo estereotipa a los creyentes y el mundo estereotipa a las personas con tatuajes y perforaciones y motos”, dijo Klitzke.“Pero, cuando le damos un giro a esas imágenes, la gente con tatuajes puede tener que revisar sus suposiciones acerca de la Iglesia y las iglesias pueden tener que revisar sus suposiciones acerca de los motociclistas y de la gente con tatuajes”.–La Rda.

The resulting volume literally hugs the dune while providing privacy and a play of indoor and outdoor space at the same time.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneEach level offers a different experience, with the lower level focusing on nestling into the dune. The next level up allows for the expanse of the open views and ample opportunity to interact with the outdoors on decks. The roof offers a habitable deck that not only provides viewing of the great expanse of the ocean beyond, but also a green roof and a place for the solar panels that generate energy for the house. Solar screens are employed in both vertical and horizontal configuration to keep the energy consumption of the house down.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessFahle House / KOKO architectsSelected ProjectsTeabank / CrossboundariesSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Tuesday most popular day for direct mail delivery

Research by Pitney Bowes suggests that direct marketers across many industries prefer their direct mail to arrive on a Tuesday.Pitney Bowes questioned marketers from the top 1,000 UK companies and found that 51% of them believed that Tuesday was the most effective day on which their direct mail should arrive. The next most popular arrival day was Wednesday at 17%. Thursday and Saturday were equal third with 9%, and Monday and Friday in joint last place with 7%.The survey respondents represented many different industry sectors, including financial, retail, utilities, and travel, although not the charity/fundraising sector. Advertisement Malcolm Bruce, director for national posts at Pitney Bowes, offered some suggestions as to why there was such a strong concensus on choosing Tuesday. Monday is too early in the week because people are still dealing with their in-tray and gearing up for work after the weekend. Friday is too late because it is nearly the weekend, so it is easy to put off opening direct mail, and so on.Interestingly, anecdotal evidence suggests that e-mail newsletters achieve a higher open and response rate if they are delivered on Tuesdays. For this reason, apart from some occasional testing of other days of the week, UK Fundraising News, our free fortnightly e-mail newsletter, has always been published on a Tuesday.If you want to get really clever, you can test and discover the best time of day on a Tuesday for an e-mail campaign to arrive. With paper-based direct mail, there isn’t of course that option.
