How I’m investing in the worst stock market crash since 1987

Tom Rodgers | Friday, 13th March, 2020 Any doubt that we’ve just witnessed widespread economic shock has disappeared. The most devastating stock market crash since Black Monday 1987. Positions wiped out. Portfolios decimated.It’s a pretty scary place to be. My collection of FTSE 100, FTSE 250, and AIM shares, plus index tracker funds is down by around 15% at last count. That’s a lot of money.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…So what now? Where do we go from here? Crucially, how do we take advantage?One thing to note is that a massively over-leveraged and value-inflated stock market just got a whole lot cheaper.Blood on the streetsIf you’re a long-term investor and you’ve never witnessed scenes like these, you’re not alone.Even I’ve thought about selling up as a knee-jerk reaction. It makes sense, right? To liquidate everything then have that ready cash on hand for when valuations are right at the bottom. Well, no. The issue you face is when to buy back in. No-one can tell you the future. Does a market rebound represent the green shoots of recovery or a dead cat bounce before another shocking plunge?If you sell out now, you have potentially tens of thousands of pounds at your fingertips, your entire financial future hovering at the click of a button. There’s intense pressure not to make a mistake. You’ve already sold your entire holdings at bargain basement prices. Getting this wrong could mean the end of your retirement plans for good.Look awayI think I checked my Stocks and Shares ISA app about 20 or 30 times yesterday. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. While the circuit breakers were firing off on the S&P 500 the same was happening in my brain. I couldn’t believe it. All those gains, wasted. All that slow and steady progress, down the drain. Disappeared in a puff of smoke.Logic is in short supply right now. But if you don’t need the money straight away, why sell now? Panic-selling in the middle of a market crash is a bad idea. It’s also about the worst possible thing you can do for your future financial health.If you’re sitting on paper losses — like most of us are — then that’s all they are. Losses aren’t losses until they’re realised. Selling now would make them real.My plan from here on out is to stay the course. I’ll delete any financial apps on my phone for a while. That’ll prevent any really stupid decisions I’ll regret. I’ll keep adding spare cash to my ISA account, but sit on the sidelines and wait. It’s better to lose a tiny bit of the rise to be more sure that the stock markets are in recovery. Then you’ll see bargain share prices not seen in a generation. That could be a matter of weeks, or months ahead. But look back 10 years from now and you’ll be furious at yourself for not having bought more.What to watchGood companies with low debt will recover faster from this economic crash than those with hefty loans weighing them down. Those businesses that have relied on generous lines of credit to stay afloat could have to make redundancies. No doubt, earnings and profits will crater. And investors will flee to safer options. Do your research to identify the strongest prospects. Set up your watchlist and keep cash on hand.

Another cracking Premiership encounter is on the cards at the Ricoh Arena this afternoon LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Wasps v Bristol live stream: How to watch from anywhereTwo of this year’s form teams clash at the Ricoh Arena for a third time in little more than two months. And Wasps will hope for more of the same in this Gallagher Premiership first-round fixture having racked up 106 points in those other two fixtures. They beat Bristol 59-35 in a September league game and 47-24 in last month’s semi-final.In fact, Wasps have won their past ten Premiership games against the Bears. They welcome back Brad Shields, Kieran Brookes, Simon McIntyre and Alfie Barbeary for today’s match (1pm) after the quartet missed last season’s final due to Covid contact tracing protocols.Both sides are without senior players on Test duty. Tim Cardall and James Gaskell comprise Wasps’ second row in the absence of Joe Launchbury and Will Rowlands. And Lima Sopoaga and Ben Vellacott replace Matteo Minozzi and Ben Robson at 15 and nine respectively as the only changes to the back-line that played in the Premiership final defeat by Exeter.Opportunity knocks: Tim Cardall gets a run in the second row for Wasps this afternoon (Getty Images)Blindside Jack Willis and fly-half Jacob Umaga return from England duty to take their place in a side captained by Welshman Thomas Young.Head coach Lee Blackett said: “The boys have had a little bit of time off and they’ve come back and trained extremely well. We’ve been really pleased with the attitude and desire of the players to get better each day since their return.“The boys needed that time off. It may take a few weeks till we will be at our 100% best, but even with just five main sessions we should hopefully be pretty close come the weekend.“You look at teams when they’ve got to finals and where they are the following year, they seem to struggle early on. We’ve put a lot of focus back on our confidence and attitude that got us to a final. We will be focused on that from the start.”Bristol are without 17 players as they try to become only the second team – after Sale – to win at the Ricoh since January. With Callum Sheedy, Max Malins and Ioan Lloyd all away on international duty, Sam Bedlow makes his first start at fly-half in the Premiership, while Piers O’Conor switches to full-back.Academy fly-half Tom Wilstead, 19, is on the bench and could make his competitive debut for the club. Tongan centre Siale Piutau will captain the side.Director of rugby Pat Lam said: “For us it’s about moving on to the next moment of inspiration – what we do daily here and what we can do throughout the whole season. That’s why we’re excited to start again, and you couldn’t ask for a tougher game than Wasps away.“We have set our goals for the campaign and have absolute clarity about what we want to achieve and what we expect of ourselves. That long road begins on Sunday at the Ricoh and we can’t wait to get started.”Man at the back: Bristol’s Piers O’Conor gets to grips with London Irish’s Tom Homer last month (Getty)Wasps: Lima Sopoaga; Zach Kibirige, Juan de Jongh, Jimmy Gopperth, Josh Bassett; Jacob Umaga, Ben Vellacott; Simon McIntyre, Tommy Taylor, Kieran Brookes, Tim Cardall, James Gaskell, Jack Willis, Thomas Young, Brad Shields.Replacements: 16 Tom Cruse, 17 Tom West, 18 Jeff Toomaga-Allen, 19 Levi Douglas, 20 Alfie Barbeary, 21 Tom Willis, 22 Sam Wolstenholme, 23 Paolo Odogwu.Bristol: Piers O’Conor; Niyi Adeolokun, Alapati Leiua, Siale Piutau (capt), Henry Purdy; Sam Bedlow, Harry Randall; Yann Thomas, Bryan Byrne, John Afoa, Ed Holmes, Joe Joyce, Chris Vui, Dan Thomas, Jake Heenan.Replacements: 16 Will Capon, 17 Jake Woolmore, 18 Jake Armstrong, 19 John Hawkins, 20 James Dun, 21 Tom Kessell, 22 Tom Wilstead, 23 Toby Fricker.Here’s how to find a reliable live stream for Wasps v Bristol wherever you are…How to watch Wasps v Bristol from outside your countryIf you’re abroad but still want to watch your local Premiership coverage, like Wasps v Bristol, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.

Episcopal Relief & Development supports response to Hurricane Eta in…

Photo: Oswaldo Rivas/ReutersEpiscopal Relief & Development is supporting partners in Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua as they respond to the devastation caused by Hurricane Eta. They are providing food, shelter, bedding and other emergency supplies to communities that have been impacted.Hurricane Eta struck Central America on November 2, moving through Nicaragua to Guatemala and Honduras. This week, many of the same areas were then also hit by Hurricane Iota. Even before Iota, approximately 3.6 million people across Central America had been affected by Eta, a slow-moving storm with heavy rains, flooding and landslides that wiped out entire communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has complicated relief efforts while also exacerbating the effects of the hurricanes.In the aftermath of Hurricane Eta, Episcopal Relief & Development staff have been in close contact with the Episcopal dioceses of Guatemala, Honduras and Nicargaua to offer technical and financial support as the dioceses respond to the needs of vulnerable communities. Partners are also assessing the effects of Hurricane Iota which struck many of the same communities. Additionally, Episcopal Relief & Development staff is coordinating with the Episcopal Diocese of Cuba as church leaders determine a potential response.The Diocese of Nicaragua is equipping farmers in the coastal village of Kisalaya by helping them recover and rebuild. Many of these farmers lost crops in the storm such as cabbage, cucumber, sweet pepper, tomato and squash seeds. The diocese is also providing farmers with rice, beans, corn and other food to meet immediate needs.In Guatemala, Eta washed away roads and led to the evacuation of approximately 9,000 people. Over 1,800 homes were destroyed. The Diocese of Guatemala, with Episcopal Relief & Development’s support, is procuring food and bedding for shelters that have been set up in local churches. The diocese is also distributing food packages to families with children who lost their homes.Hurricane Eta downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it hit Honduras, however the storm caused severe flooding in coastal areas. With Episcopal Relief & Development’s support, the Diocese of Honduras is providing food, clothing and other emergency supplies to shelters, individuals and families. The diocese is purchasing bedding and pillows, propane tanks, food such as meats, vegetables and grains, and clothing items. All of these items will be used by shelters to ensure that people have a safe and warm place to sleep and food to eat. Staff and volunteers are also distributing packages of supplies to help people as they return to their homes.“The 2020 Hurricane Season has been unprecedented and many of the impacted communities continue to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Nagulan Nesiah, Senior Program Officer, Disaster Risk and Reduction, Episcopal Relief & Development. “Our partners in Central America are responding to assist women, children, farmers and other groups that have been disproportionately affected by the multiple disasters of COVID-19, Eta and Iota.”Donations to Episcopal Relief & Development’s Hurricane Relief fund will support continued response to storms such as Eta and Iota.

New Fight for Sight virtual run to take people on a journey to the centre of the eye

It will involve runners or walkers signing up on the charity’s site, downloading an app and then listening to an audio story while they run or walk a 10k virtual race.Through the app, participants will shrink to the size of a photon before being taken deep into the eye. The interactive app will use geo-positioning to give updates to runners at different stages of the course, revealing wonders about the eye and eye health tips along the way.Journey to the Centre of the Eye will also aim to raise awareness of eye health and funds for Fight for Sight to fund research to prevent sight loss.Michele Acton, Chief Executive of Fight for Sight, said:“We’re encouraging everyone to join a massive adventure at a small scale! I think this is a fantastic interactive way to learn more about the eye while you get fit, and what better time to take part than in National Eye Health Week. Anyone can get involved and you can walk, jog or run at your own pace from any location.“Half of sight loss is actually avoidable so it’s really important that people know about their eyes and how to look after their eyesight.”One participant will be Londoner Joe Pepper, 26, who has an eye condition called choroideremia and had extensive sight loss until he took part in pioneering gene therapy which improved his sight. Fight for Sight funded the initial research that led to the clinical trials, through the Tommy Salisbury Choroideremia Fund.Pepper said: Advertisementcenter_img “To grow up gradually seeing your vision deteriorate and having to contemplate giving up the sports and activities you love was soul destroying. Thanks to the research funding of Fight for Sight I no longer have to prepare for going blind due to gene therapy which has stopped me losing my sight and even brought some back. I encourage everyone to take the opportunity to sign up to the virtual event. Use your eyes – run through landmarks, along country paths or around local parks – and treasure the sights you see. I certainly do and now always will be able to.”  129 total views,  1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

New HAT Soil Health Podcast Focuses on Fall/Winter Grazing

first_img By Eric Pfeiffer – Oct 28, 2019 New HAT Soil Health Podcast Focuses on Fall/Winter Grazing SHARE The HAT Soil Health Podcast- Fall/Winter Grazing ConsiderationsThe latest HAT Soil Health Podcast discusses considerations for fall and winter grazing.There are many newcomers to cover crops this year. If you have livestock grazing those covers, Southeast Area NRCS Grazing Specialist Robert Zupancic says there is a species that could be problematic for livestock: sudan grass and sorghum-sudan hybrids.“When they get stressed from, mainly frost, but also severe drought, they can produce a compound that’s called prussic acid. Most of the time it’s not a big deal, but, like I said, when they get frosted the recommendation is 7 to 14 days after a killing freeze to make sure animals don’t graze on any of the sorghum family.”Also on the podcast is Jason Tower, Superintendent of the Southern Indiana Purdue Ag Center. He says another consideration this fall and winter is, “If you have a great deal of brassicas in there, your turnips and radishes, you really need to make sure that those animals have enough other dry material to eat.“If you’ve got a decent stand of oats in there, that can work. But, if it’s heavy on those brassicas, the digestibility on those is so high those animals get extremely loose, and can really, from a weight standpoint, go backwards on you.”Tower recommends putting out dry hay or some other feed so those animals don’t lose weight or end up with too much protein.

‘Staying Upbeat’ set for Thursday

first_img ‘Staying Upbeat’ set for Thursday Facebook Local News Twitter TAGS  Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – January 12, 2021 In the time of COVID-19, many arts performances have been cancelled, postponed or altered to help people stay safe from the virus.  A panel discussion titled “Staying Upbeat” is set for Thursday. The interactive panel will focus on arts opportunities during the pandemic. Presented by Allegro Chorale and Cassatt in the Basin, Staying Upbeat is set for 6 p.m. Jan. 14 on the Allegro Chorale Facebook page. It is hosted by the Odessa Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. Expected participants are Allegro Chorale President Michael Jordan, Cassatt Quartet violinist Jennifer Leshnower, Ken Sieloff, is the head choir director at Permian High School and artistic director and conductor of the Allegro Chorale; Odessa Arts Executive Director Randy Ham, Odessa High School Associate Choir Director Rob Rodgers, and recently added Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic, noted TED talk speaker and master teacher. “I’m looking forward to having a really good discussion. We’re going to have some questions that we’ll deal with and respond to,” Jordan said. “I hope it’s going to be informative.” Leshnower said it’s been difficult to perform and provide lessons to students during the pandemic, but they have found ways to make their projects work. The quartet offered its first online Cassatt in the Basin summer program. They also plan to start an art therapy program to local organizations working with people who have experienced trauma from the pandemic and/or the Aug. 31, 2019, mass shootings. Since the technology is available, the quartet is using it to stay active, purposeful and relevant, Leshnower said. They participated in the world premier of an opera called “Aede of the Ocean and Land.” Ham said he thinks it’s important to look at the cultural effects this pandemic is going to have on the cultural landscape in the days, weeks, months and years to come. “I don’t think we’re going to go back to the way things were. I think we’ll have some sort of hybrid. Obviously public gathering is going to be important, but some of the things that have been done during the pandemic will probably carry over and stick around. It will be interesting to get other people’s perspective on that and what worked and what didn’t and how we can move forward,” Ham said. One of the great things to come out of the pandemic, Ham said, was that people leaned on the arts for comfort “when we couldn’t do anything else.” “I was very proud of our cultural institutions (that took) an active role in giving people an outlet and I hope that continues through this next year, as well,” Ham said. With the COVID vaccination rolling out, Ham said he hopes in-person events can resume soon. “I miss them so much. I miss people. I miss seeing live theater and seeing live music, so we’re all working towards that but it’s going to take the community to help us with that and that means practicing social distancing and wearing a mask and getting your vaccine so that we can get back to the business of entertaining and providing for our community,” Ham said. Ethan Wills is executive director of the Midland-Odessa Symphony and Chorale. He was going to participate, but he and his wife are expecting a baby. Willis said it’s important for all the arts organizations to work together and find a path forward and find ways to adapt to COVID. “I think (if) everybody works together and talks and remains open it just heightens all the other arts groups so I think it’s good,” Willis said. He added that it’s been nice to see that there is still demand for the arts. “… I just feel like without the arts through this pandemic it’s just been really difficult and I think every little bit you can get helps. It’s not the same, but having a football season, having hockey, having some bit of baseball everybody’s trying to do something and when that happens I think, generally speaking, spirits get uplifted and I hate to see the arts impacted in that way. if these other sports teams can kind of push ahead and try and do it safely, we’ve got to find a way to do it, too,” Willis said. According to data from Odessa Arts from its Americans for the Arts survey, in 2019 the City of Odessa invested $700,000 in hotel occupancy tax to cultural nonprofits. Ham said that generated over $6 million in economic activity for the City of Odessa in one year. “That is an 800 percent return on investment. The arts nonprofits supported over 200 full-time equivalent jobs, contributed over $275,000 in local government revenue and $300,000 in state government revenue,” Ham said. The average Odessa resident, when going to a cultural event, spends $27.30. That includes the price of admission, parking, any meals or special retail, like if you went out and bought a new dress for the concert. $27 per person for every event, he said. “The average cultural tourist, which is somebody that comes from outside of Odessa and attends a cultural event, spent $79 — three times as much. When you start looking at cultural tourism, that’s not just hotel but it does include hotel, and these are people I’m not just talking about people that maybe come from Rankin and come into Odessa to go to the Ellen Noel, it’s also people that come here for business but then go ahead and attend an event at the Permian Playhouse, or go see a symphony concert while they’re here,” Ham said.center_img Facebook Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp Twitter Previous articleCOLLEGE NOTEBOOK: Falcons regroup after road tripNext articleLandgraf renews oath as state rep Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

Moody’s Analytics PFaroe™ DB Solution Wins Buy-Side ALM Product of the Year for Fourth…

first_img LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 5, 2021– Moody’s Analytics has won Buy-Side ALM Product of the Year at the 2021 Risk Markets Technology Awards for our PFaroe DB solution. RiskFirst, which Moody’s acquired in 2019, won this award for the PFaroe DB offering in each of the last three years. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: Defined benefit (DB) pension plans and their advisers need to evaluate asset and liability risk from multiple perspectives; the PFaroe DB solution makes that possible. To enrich their holistic understanding of a plan’s risk even further, stakeholders can also perform real-time scenario stress testing within the platform. Because there are so many different parties (investment managers, trustees, actuaries, other advisers) involved in the management of DB pension plans, it is essential that they all have the same view of a plan’s position. In the PFaroe DB solution, all of a plan’s stakeholders share the same transparent, cross-balance sheet view. By understanding a plan’s performance better, all involved are more likely to make smarter and more strategic decisions. “For our customers, having deeper visibility into their plan’s risk and overall position is of critical importance—especially as the uncertainty caused by the pandemic persists,” said Matthew Seymour, Head of Buy-Side Solutions at Moody’s Analytics. “We’re honored to help them navigate this challenging period. We’re also enormously proud that the PFaroe DB solution won Buy-Side ALM Product of the Year for the fourth straight year. It is a testament to our innovation, which will only continue as we add more capabilities from within Moody’s Analytics.” This win adds to the industry recognition for Moody’s Analytics.
