Why I’d grab today’s cheap shares before it’s too late!

first_img Enter Your Email Address FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge A strategy that aims to buy cheap shares and hold them for the long run has historically been relatively successful. While it does not guarantee profits, it can be a means of potentially using the stock market’s cycle to an investor’s advantage.Many stocks are currently trading at low prices due to ongoing economic uncertainty. So, there may be an opportunity to buy them prior to their recovery. An economic recovery cannot be assumed, of course. But history suggests that there is a good chance it will take place over the coming years. This could lift the valuations of today’s underpriced stocks.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…Cheap shares following the market crashWhile many cheap shares have bounced back following the 2020 stock market crash, others have failed to fully recover to their pre-crash levels. In some cases, this may be warranted because of their weak financial positions and challenging future outlooks. However, in other cases, they may have the strategies, financial means and market positions to mount a successful recovery over the long run.Clearly, identifying such companies can be challenging. However, doing so could be a prudent move that may enable an investor to reduce their overall risk. Cheap shares in companies with poor finances and weak market positions may be less likely to deliver successful turnarounds, or even survive, over the long run. Therefore, focusing on high-quality companies that are undervalued may be a more prudent approach.The prospect of economic growthAs mentioned, an economic recovery that lifts the valuations of today’s cheap shares cannot be taken for granted. The future is always very uncertain, and the pandemic is an extremely rare event that may have as yet unknown effects on the world’s GDP prospects.However, previous economic declines have always been followed by growth. No recession has yet lasted in perpetuity. Therefore, taking a long-term view of cheap stocks could be a means of capitalising on a likely economic recovery. The 2020 market crash was almost impossible to predict. And trying to forecast when any economic recovery will take hold is a very difficult task. Therefore, buying shares while they still trade at cheap prices could be a sound move.Minimising risksWhen investing in cheap shares, or any type of stock, it is impossible to reduce risks to zero. There is always the potential for losses over any time period from any holding. After all, the future is a known unknown that cannot be predicted accurately on a consistent basis.However, it may be possible to reduce risk through actions such as focusing on stronger businesses and building a portfolio made up of a broad range of businesses, industries and geographies. Together, they may offer a lower level of risk versus a concentrated portfolio, and may also deliver higher returns in a potential long-term economic recovery.

Neighbours prepare to spill blood in 1872 Cup

first_imgNOT FOR FEATURED Something to shout about: which of the two Scottish sides will come out on top in the 1872 cup?By Alan DymockALTHOUGH STERN faces will be talking about the benefits the Scottish pro sides can gain from the next three rounds of the Heineken Cup, it is safe to say that these are now extra games for Edinburgh and Glasgow to build form for other competitions.For both sides their season will not be defined by the remaining European matches, but by the two 1872 Cup matches between the rivals in the RaboDirect Pro12.Inside Edinburgh there are the noises you would expect. Players gush about their setup, declaring the mood fantastic and the volume of losses perplexing, considering how harmonious the camp is.Ross Rennie in last year’s Heineken Cup semi-finalThere are some grumbles about the shape of their pack, with opensides Ross Rennie and Roddy Grant sporadically falling out of favour despite their defensive qualities, but nothing that can’t be sorted out over time.However, these noises can appear as positive spin because that pack and the collective defence are two whopping reasons why Edinburgh have struggled, particularly in Europe.Like dogs chasing cars the capital side ran and ran against Saracens and Munster, almost presupposing the Scotland national tactic against South Africa of running round the half-back to smack into beefy opponents. Defensively, against all of their European opponents, Edinburgh have gotten it wrong so far.They have let opponents ride tackles and they have left ruck-side gaps. They have flown too hard, trying to show their determination, and have forgot the basics of teamwork. They have ignored drift because they have been running too hard.When players run at them, Edinburgh can defend. Last year they tried to do this before pouring on scores of their own. This season, though, they have been nilled in Europe and have scored less than they have conceded in the Rabo, collecting only one try bonus so far.They face Racing Metro again this week, hoping that last season’s try bonanza can be repeated and they can kick start their season offensively. They will need to, because in the 1872 Cup they meet one of the Rabo’s best defence.According to sources at the Warriors, Matt Taylor has revolutionized the side’s defence. This may seem odd, considering how fierce the Glasgow team were in defence last season, but Taylor has brought in new ideas and a dedication to detail – particularly in terms of slowing down ruck ball – that has impressed his charges. TAGS: Edinburgh RugbyGlasgow Warriors LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In fact all of the new personnel at Glasgow have bedded in well.Mane man: Josh Strauss in his Lions daysJosh Strauss has become a changing room hero, showing a light side and a sense of humour few expected from the rough-looking former Golden Lion. Sean Maitland has smashed all previous sprint records set on the Scotstoun track. Gregor Townsend has simply given the team something else to think about.The former Scotland attack coach came in with much to prove but he has settled in well. Some feel he still has much to learn about stewarding a whole team, with decisions to drag broken bodies in for Sunday sessions not going down well. Yet he has brought vibrancy and thought to the squad, with a few insiders remarking that he is not simply regurgitating coaching prose, like some bygone coaches.All of this makes for a fascinating 1872 series.Edinburgh have some players who can turn games, but they are holding on to bad habits and only won in Connacht by the skin of their teeth last time out in the RaboDirect Pro12. If they keep chasing games so hard they may be shocked by what they run into.Edinburgh’s head coach Michael Bradley will be hoping that the tweaks he must make will be enough to pull Edinburgh out of their funk. As for Townsend: there is no way to know which Glasgow he will send out.Nay bother, whichever one emerges against Edinburgh in the first match on December 21st will be expected to produce, and expect to be met with fire.Follow Alan Dymock on Twitter @AlanDymocklast_img read more

Fundraising Everywhere Foundation launches – & opens first funding round

first_img Fundraising Everywhere has opened its first funding round through its new foundation.The Fundraising Everywhere Foundation will be giving out grants as part of its first Trust Fundraising Virtual Summit, for which it has partnered with David Burgess of Apollo Fundraising. The event takes place on 4 December 2020, and Fundraising Everywhere is now inviting charities to submit applications for the grants as well as sign up for the Summit.The Fundraising Everywhere Foundation’s aim is simply to help charities to be the best they can be. As such, it will fund charitable organisations working anywhere in the world, and in any field, and fund any costs that enable the charity to do what it does best, whether they are project costs, capital costs or core costs.The maximum grant for this funding round is currently €1,500.Applications are now being accepted via its online application form, with a deadline of 5pm (GMT) on 30 September, or sooner if it receives a large number.The issuing of the grants will be a learning experience for those attending the Trust Fundraising Virtual Summit during which they will review applications and make funding decisions in a group setting.Applications will be shortlisted with five going forward to the grant-making stage. The final decisions will be made by Summit delegates. Those that sign up for one of the virtual grant meetings will be sent the five shortlisted proposals in advance and will then have an hour to discuss the proposals and reach a decision on how to split the funding pot.Fundraising Everywhere’s Co-founder and Director Simon Scriver said:“At Fundraising Everywhere we’re always looking to develop events around what our members and attendees really want and need, at a price that everyone can afford. That’s why we’re so happy to partner with David Burgess at Apollo Fundraising to put together a world-class programme for this event. Not only that, but our first cash grant via the Fundraising Everywhere Foundation will give attendees a peek behind the curtain.“While we hope these unrestricted grants will make a huge difference to charities, the grant programme’s real value is as a learning opportunity for fundraisers. We want to give trust fundraisers the chance to experience a real grant meeting and see what it feels like to make difficult decisions on who gets funding and who doesn’t. We hope that giving fundraisers a truly transparent first-hand experience of these decisions will help them improve the way they get their own message across to funders.”More information is available on the Fundraising Everywhere site.

Stop Texas’ execution of Bernardo Tercero

first_imgFriends and supporters of Nicaraguan citizen Bernardo Tercero rallied outside of the Nicaraguan Consulate on July 9, to encourage the consul general to intensify efforts to stop Tercero’s August 26 execution in Huntsville, Texas. “We are here to urge the Honorable Samuel Trejos, consul general of Nicaragua in Houston, to step up and defend his fellow countryman, Bernardo Tercero, before any more injustices take place,” said Tercero’s friend Luz Alvarez.Death penalty opponents protest outside Nicaraguan Consulate in Houston on July 9.Photo: Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement.The activists raised with the media the many troubling issues in Tercero’s case that must be settled before Texas carries out this execution. Media coverage was extensive, including a TV station from Nicaragua as well as local Houston stations and La Semana and the Houston Chronicle newspapers.Even though Tercero specifically requested to speak with the Nicaraguan Consulate and the authorities had full knowledge of Tercero’s status as a foreign national, they denied him his right, which he has under the Vienna Convention of Consular Relations (VCCR, Article 36).  Also, Tercero was only 17 years old when arrested for capital murder. With this age at the time of the crime, he cannot be executed, according to the Supreme Court’s Roper v. Simmons ruling in 2005, which declared juveniles ineligible for the death penalty.Tercero had totally incompetent trial attorneys. Rather than use the funding provided by the court to have a knowledgeable professional assist in obtaining records and conducting background and mitigation investigations in Nicaragua, attorneys instead refunded almost half of the funds to Harris County.Although the trial court approved Tercero’s counsel’s request for a forensic psychologist in February of 2000, counsel did not attempt to contact a psychologist until Sept. 29, 2000, less than two weeks before Tercero’s trial was set to begin. No psychological testing was ever done, nor was any psychological or other expert evidence, records or testimony offered at trial.British attorney Peter Bellamy and Tercero petitioned the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to intervene in this case.  Bellamy was notified on July 6 that the IACHR accepted the petition on its merits and will investigate the case. The IACHR has renewed the “protective measures” status of Bernardo, which imposes responsibilities on U.S. authorities not to carry out the execution pending the outcome of the commission’s investigation of Bernardo’s petition.There have been multiple systemic failures in Tercero’s case, beginning with his arrest and continuing today, namely a lack of due process at every stage of prosecution, defense and post trial appeal. Until there is a remedy to these, Bernardo’s sentence must not be carried out.In the death row visiting area the day after the rally,Tercero told this reporter to convey his gratitude to everyone who is working to help him  stop the August execution and bring justice to his case.As of July 13, Texas had executed 527 people since reinstatement of the death penalty in 1976, nine of them already this year with nine others scheduled, including Tercero. Another foreign national facing execution, Gilmar Guevara, a citizen of El Salvador, was also denied his consular rights under international law.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Forensic psychiatrist who consulted on JonBenet Ramsey case killed outside his office

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PHOENIX) — Steven Pitt, a forensic psychiatrist who consulted with law enforcement on a number of high-profile cases, including the mysterious death of JonBenet Ramsey, was found shot to death outside his Phoenix office on Thursday night.Witnesses told police they heard an argument between two people outside the office following by gunfire, according to Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV. Police said it is unknown whether the shooting is connected to Pitt’s work.Police described the suspected shooter as a bald Caucasian man wearing a dark hat with a short brim.Steven Pitt & Associates is headquartered in Phoenix, but Pitt worked on a number of nationally known cases, including Ramsey’s murder in 1996. The murder of the 6-year-old beauty pageant competitor, found dead in the basement of her family’s Boulder, Colorado, home has never been solved. Pitt was brought on by Boulder police and the district attorney to consult on the case in February 1997.In a 1999 profile of Pitt by the Phoenix New Times, centered around the Ramsey investigation, the psychiatrist was described as “a street-smart, openly ambitious wiseguy who seems most comfortable helping detectives sort out the psychopathology that has led someone — known or unknown — to commit a crime.”Pitt’s website has a laundry list of prominent cases in which he consulted, including the Columbine High School massacre, the Jodi Arias trial, the sexual assault civil case of NFL quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, the Kobe Bryant sexual assault case and the Phoenix serial murderer known as the “Baseline Killer.”After Pitt’s consultation on the “Baseline Killer,” the suspect, Mark Goudeau, was convicted and sentenced to death in 2011 for nine murders.Pitt, 59, was the father of two children.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
