Alert! FTSE 100 stocks are 25% cheaper! Time to buy?

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. T Sligo | Thursday, 2nd April, 2020 Alert! FTSE 100 stocks are 25% cheaper! Time to buy? Investors fear uncertainty. Unfortunately, at the moment the FTSE 100 — and the wider economy — is filled with it. The coronavirus crisis is difficult to comprehend and nobody is entirely sure how the disease will affect business and what it will mean for stock prices in the future.Fear and uncertainty have caused FTSE 100 stocks to fall roughly 25% since the beginning of 2020. As personal investors, seeing the market drop by this much can be unnerving, especially when financial journalists mention other investments (like gold) as ‘safer’ options.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…With the UK in lockdown, sadly people will not be spending their money in the same way. In these circumstances, it is unsurprising that some businesses (like airlines) are hurting badly. As this is a rapidly moving situation, it is still unclear which industries will suffer and which companies will be able to ride out the storm.To invest in the stock market when it is substantially falling is the ultimate contrarian move and takes nerves of steel.But is it the right thing to do? Time to sell your shares?If you are still sitting on your stocks, like I am, your portfolio’s value will no doubt be quite a bit lighter than it was several months ago. The thought has crossed my mind about whether I should sell some of my holdings and put it in what is traditionally safer, like cash or bonds. But by selling my position, I would be turning a paper loss into an actual, realised loss. The coronavirus will almost certainly wreak carnage upon businesses, and yet I have faith that in the long term, the British economy will be OK. I am certain that all of us have thought about selling. Even other Fools, like Tom Rodgers, have thought about it. As Tom pointed out, panic-selling in a market crash is a bad idea. Nobody can second guess what FTSE 100 stocks will do next. The only thing I am reasonably certain about is the analysis I have carried out and I am comfortable that I have bought stocks in quality companies. If nothing material has changed at these businesses, then I will continue to hold my position.I am investing for the long term and have confidence that over the next 30 years, the revenues and profits for these companies will improve. Hopefully, the stock price will correspond with this and in time will increase too. And dividends will help as well.Time to buy FTSE 100 stocks?I would look at it this way — in this market crash, now could be a good time to buy a portion of quality companies at a lower valuation. I am currently buying the same stocks I always have done, but just at a reduced price. Although the FTSE 100 may continue to drop further, by purchasing stocks at a regular interval I hope to ride out some of the turbulence and buy at the low points. The market will probably remain volatile for some time. But in the long term, I have confidence that the FTSE 100 will recover, just like it did after the crash in 1987 and after the financial crisis of little more than a decade ago. Now could turn out to be a great opportunity to pick up wonderful stocks for a bargain price.

Provenance and sex ratio of black-browed albatross, Thalassarche melanophrys, breeding on Campbell Island, New Zealand

first_imgSmall numbers of Black-browed Albatross, Thalassarche melanophrys, breed on Campbell Island, New Zealand. Their dark brown irises had previously been used to distinguish them from the more numerous Campbell Albatross, T. impavida, which has light irises. Blood samples were collected from dark-eyed birds and their partners on Campbell Island to determine their provenance and whether a sex imbalance caused them to breed with Campbell Albatrosses. Analysis of mitochondrial DNA revealed that dark-eyed birds were of three genetically distinct groups: T. melanophrys, Falkland Islands T. melanophrysand T. impavida. The majority of both types of T. melanophrys on Campbell Island were male, hence none was paired with the same taxon, but most of the more widespread form chose dark-eyed mates. Other individuals had a succession of light-eyed partners over several years. Dark-eyed T. impavida may have been hybrid progeny of femaleT. impavida× male T. melanophrys pairings. One of these birds was banded as a chick in 1970, suggesting that hybridisation has occurred on Campbell Island at least as early as that date. Their presence suggests a low rate of interchange between the island groups or recent immigration of T. melanophrys to Campbell Island and neighbouring island groups.last_img read more

Sink estates will rise again

first_imgThe British Property Federation (BPF) has welcomed proposals from the Government to regenerate some of the country’s most run-down housing estates, praising the Government for ensuring that “binding guarantees” will be put in place for tenants and homeowners, to ensure that their right to a home is protected.The government has launched a package of measures to transform 100 housing estates across the country, including a £140m fund and the launch of an Estate Regeneration Advisory Panel, chaired by former Deputy Prime Minister Lord Heseltine (left).Ian Fletcher, director of policy (real estate) at the British Property Federation, said, “There are some very old council estates that are in need of regeneration, but that process must treat existing residents fairly. The Government is therefore right to put some sorts of guarantees at the forefront of its policy and encourage a partnership approach.“Communities need not only homes, but jobs, schools and green spaces and other leisure opportunities to create places people want to live in. If the Government gets this right it could be some of the best use of £140m it has ever spent.”The Prime Minister’s announcement comes ahead of a report from property advisor Savills which will show the approach to regeneration could be a catalyst to the building of hundreds of thousands of new homes in London alone.Mr Cameron said, “For decades, sink estates – and frankly, sometimes the people who lived in them – had been seen as something simply to be managed. It’s time to be more ambitious at every level.The mission here is nothing short of social turnaround, and with massive estate regeneration, tenants protected, and land unlocked for new housing all over Britain, I believe we can tear down anything that stands in our way.”Yolande Barnes (right), Savills Research Director, said, “Savills research shows is that housing estates can deliver more homes and be made into better neighbourhoods by re-integrating them into the wider street network and creating or repairing the streetscape.“This creates more highly valued neighbourhoods. The signs are that new developments of ‘complete streets’ cost less to build than conventional estate renewal.”However, not everyone is so supportive. Shadow Housing Minister John Healey said, “Any extra to help councils build new homes is welcome but Conservative ministers have halved housing investment since 2010 and are doing too little to deal with the country’s housing pressures.“People simply won’t see this small-scale scheme stretched over 100 estates making much difference to the housing problems in their area.”Brian Robson, policy and research manager for housing at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation charity, said it was true that poor housing and run down estates could trap people in poverty.But he said he worried the government was relying too much on private investment, which risked “pushing people out of the places where they have roots.”Lord Heseltine sink estates housing regeneration The British Property Federation BPF Yolande Barnes January 14, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
