Here’s how I’m planning for a second stock market crash

first_img Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. Here’s how I’m planning for a second stock market crash 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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The possibility of a second stock market crash in 2020 hasn’t gone away. And I can understand how the threat of another crash makes people nervous about investing in the stock market.A second stock market crash could be an opportunityBut some of the best share bargains arrive in times of uncertainty. Indeed, famous US investor Warren Buffett has achieved extraordinary returns by buying the stocks of strong underlying businesses when they are out of favour with investors.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 second part of Buffett’s strategy involves holding onto his shares for a long time. And that means riding the ups and downs of the market, including any further stock market crash that may arrive in 2020. The idea is to hold until you realise the full potential of the underlying enterprise. Often, growth and operational progress will cause the share price to rise. It could also fuel a growing stream of shareholder dividends.But Buffett isn’t the only investor to pursue such a strategy. Early on, growth investor Philip Fisher influenced Buffett to adopt a long-term perspective. And his ‘partner’ Charlie Munger also helped persuade him to hold quality shares for a long time. Indeed, Buffett’s earlier strategy involved focusing on cheap, undervalued businesses and buying their shares for a relatively quick bounce-back gain. Often, the quality of the underlying business was lacking. So those stocks weren’t suitable for a long-term hold.Impressive returnsMost of Buffett’s billions have come from the long-term, quality business strategy that he follows now. And many have copied his approach. For example, I recently wrote about Nick Train of fund management company Lindsell Train. His technique chimes with Buffett’s because he holds the shares of quality businesses through “thick and thin.” And, over the past 20 years, Train’s performance has been impressive. He’s delivered his fund investors returns measured in hundreds of per cent.One thing that both Buffett and Train didn’t do was to sell any of their quality shares when the stock market crash arrived in the spring. Although, in fairness, Buffett did sell his holdings in the airlines. But an airline isn’t a high-quality business. Buffett himself had been telling us that for years.So central to my plan for handling a second stock market crash is to make sure strong, high-quality businesses back the shares I’m holding now. Indeed, if there’s anything in my portfolio that doesn’t attract my full conviction, now’s the time to chuck it out.Step two of the plan is to focus on a long-term investment period. If I aim to hold my shares for 20 years, say, another crash in 2020 will become a short-term setback.The final step is to prepare a watch list now of quality shares I’d like to own one day. Then, if a second crash does arrive, I can potentially buy some of those quality shares while the market is marking them down to a lower price. Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned.

Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight confirmed

first_img By Nathalie SimonThe eagerly awaited fight between Mike Tyson, 54, and Roy Jones, 51, will take place on November 28, 2020 at the Staples Centre. However, there will be no fans due to restrictions on gatherings because of the Coronavirus pandemic. This will be the first event since March to take place at the Los Angeles arena. The original exhibition match between these two legends was scheduled to take place in Carson, California on September 12, before being postponed for two months. In addition to fighting for bragging rights, a special WBC Frontline Battle Belt has been created for the winner. While Jones was last in the ring in 2018, Tyson’s last professional match was in 2005.About the fightThe exhibition match will last eight rounds of two minutes each as a safety precaution. However, the two men are not happy and were in favor of the three minute round reserved for men. They are upset because the two minute rounds are reserved for women boxers. Both boxers have been advised to take it easy on each other given their age and lack of action for such a long time.This match will not count as an official match. Despite it being an exhibition, the two professional boxers say they are taking this match seriously, especially with a belt on the line. The fight will be the first of Mike Tyson’s Legends Only League. While both are in their 50’s, the record for the oldest boxer to take part in a professional boxing match stands with Steve Ward who took to the ring at aged 60. In addition to this fight, there will also be three other bouts involving Nate Robinson, an NBA guard, against the popular YouTube star Jake Paul. Badou Jake will face off with Blake McKernan, while Vidal Riley will square it out with Randy Coulter. As you wait on this fight, you can try your luck on a trusted, safe and secure casino that has it all, such as Mike TysonMike Tyson’s last match in 2005 saw him lose to Kevin McBride. He was regarded as one of the greatest boxers during his peak years. He won his first 19 fights consecutively through knockouts to break the record set by Rocky Marciano. Tyson won the heavyweight title aged 20, to become the youngest champion in history. Jones claims that these achievements by Mike Tyson, during his heydays, are what made him come out of retirement and face a legend he always fancied facing.What are the oddsThese two great boxers have never faced each other. All fans can now depend on when predicting the likely winner of the match is by watching replays of how they performed during their yesteryears. In the matches that Mike Tyson took part in, he was always the favorite, except when he faced Lennox Lewis. However, he has not been to the ring in 15 years, while Jones’ last match in 2018 saw him emerge victoriously. This means that Jones will be in a better shape, and his comparatively younger age should work to his advantage. You have entered an incorrect email address!

It is on a trapezoidal corner plot, which determines from the outset the complex insertion of the program. A good orientation towards the south, and views to the Son Puig forest, finally determined what would be the “face” of the house. The proposal sets back the building as much as possible towards its northern boundary, to generate a bright and spacious void that houses the pool, terraces and garden. The valley of pine and almond trees which the house faces without any obstacles, and the decision to raise the ground level eight feet over the street level, give this home good views and a luminosity that bathes the interior of each of its rooms.Save this picture!© José HeviaA house with clean and concise forms sits on a capri limestone platform. The main facade of the house is rendered unique by a cubic body that turns onto the forest views, as a privileged balcony. The architect has placed the master bedroom of the house in this space facing south. Behind it, facing east, is the bathroom, from which a large window allows one to contemplate sunrise and the lines of an antique Majorcan dependency, which contrast with the contemporary architecture of the house.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe geometry of the plot causes a longitudinal development of the program, in which the different rooms are intertwined. The ground floor is unified by a single aperture on the facade that includes the kitchen, dining, and living room. On the first floor are the bedrooms and a versatile area, adaptable to the needs of the family at different times. A white longitudinal staircase, made of steel, glass and wood, acts as a connector between the different floors of the house, leading to a solarium, from which one can see the Son Puig forest and the Palma bay. The many windows and a skylight located on the second floor flood the project with light.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe color white, present in the entire house contrasts with the warmth of the merbau wood floor. The orientation and arrangement of the window apertures allow cross ventilation in summer, and low emissivity glass reduces energy loss in winter.The exterior of the house has white stone terraces, and a swimming pool made of white rectangular tile topped by a wooden deck that cantilevers over the water. On both sides of the pool, gardened areas provide freshness and enhance the luminosity that the white color gives the exterior space. In the western boundary of the house, covered by the shade of a poplar over white pebbles, the architect has designed a children’s play area.Save this picture!© José HeviaIn the back of the house there is a garden with white pebbles, which continues on the wall with the use of gabions as a backdrop of a prunus. Next to the tree, several vines climb over the concrete wall creating a beautiful play of colors in the form of a vegetable skin on the hard material.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAA Students “Amplify the Forest”Architecture NewsTaihu New Town Primary School / MINAXSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© José Hevia+ 14 Share 212 House / Alfonso Reina ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2010 212 House / Alfonso ReinaSave this projectSave212 House / Alfonso Reinalast_img read more

In the dense pine forest next to Praia das Maçãs (Apple Beach) the house hovers over the landscape. We opt for a single volume with two distinct faces: a more closed one and another more exuberant and exposed. It marks the entrance in the blind elevation by a ramp that gently transports us to the interior of the house that in an unexpected way merges with the outside. The theme of being indoor and out, both inside and outside, is intrinsic in the atmosphere intended for a seasonal dwelling like this: all the spaces of the house have autonomous access from the outside. Thus, all the environments set up a strong relation with the pinewood, the patio arises from this will and serves as a hinge between social and private area. In the room the space continuity is greater: two large planes of glass that run one over the other and open alternately to the porch. The few materials of the house create a unique atmosphere, the pavement inside and outside is the same – cement stroked – ensuring the unification of spaces.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Juan RodriguezThe exterior porch due to its elevation relative to the terrain appears as a porch above the pine forest. If the house on one side is born from the land, on the other due to the natural topography delicately levitates on it. This solution appears in a way as a strategy of environmental comfort, the Sintra mountain range has a very high humidity level, with this solution decreases the transfer of moisture from the soil to the house.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe program is simple and was thought to the place where it is, with the existing climate. In this way is intended the greater absorption of sunlight: Rooms facing south, an office that appears as a place of collective activities and open for passage, room to the west and kitchen to the north. The large glazed windows allow the entrance of natural light in much of the day and therefore the heating of the space.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Juan RodriguezMinimizing the effects on the natural landscape of the place, the pine forest was left as it was before this existence: the house is a platform that floats on the sand terrain.Save this picture!© Juan RodriguezProject gallerySee allShow lessEENWERK & Irma Boom Office / Barend KoolhaasSelected ProjectsDamushan Valley Teahouse / DnASelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Residence in Colares / Frederico Valsassina Arquitectos ArchDailylast_img read more

Student tests positive for COVID-19 after attending summer party

The cases spiked again in August as TCU was grappling with how the semester could be carried on as a majority of faculty shifted their courses online. Kaydianna Davis, a senior news and media studies major, said going to the luau was a lesson in the importance of thinking beyond herself. Davis hadn’t left Fort Worth since March when classes transitioned to online. But after weeks of being holed up in her townhouse, she was ready to go out with her friends. Another friend was hosting a luau at a rented home. Looking back, Davis said she never once thought about getting the virus. At the time there were at least 1,500 cases in Tarrant County, but the governor had loosened restrictions and there was no mask order. Davis said she had no worries that anyone at the party might be positive for the virus.At the time, much of the nation’s attention had shifted to the death of George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis after being restrained by a police officer, she said. “I wasn’t even thinking about the virus, it never even crossed my mind to worry about getting infected because most of the attention and talk was on the protests,” said Davis.A week later, everything changed. “I really just thought I had a common cold,” said Davis. “I was pretty stuffy and had a cough of course but no fever.”But then she started hearing from people who were at the party who had COVID-19. She and her boyfriend decided to get tested even though their symptoms were mild.Davis had to be isolated for 14 days. During this time, she said she realized she had not been taking this virus seriously. Davis said she felt responsible for giving it to her boyfriend and she worried about transferring it to her older relatives. “I was definitely worried about my family – they were supposed to come visit two weeks after,” she said. “I was pretty much cleaning everything down… I was worried about my elderly grandmother being exposed as well.”These days, Davis said she’s taking multiple vitamins, using hand sanitizer and wearing a mask. She said she’s also extremely cautious with what she does and where she goes.  “I am a little bummed that we have to put these precautions in place,” Davis said. “But I definitely understand them.” Linkedin KayDianna Davis wears her mask in Fort Worth to stay protected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
