Why I’d follow Warren Buffett’s simple advice in the next stock market crash

first_img Warren Buffett has a long track record of capitalising on market downturns. Over recent decades he has successfully bought a range of high-quality companies when they trade at low prices. In doing so, he has become one of the most successful investors of all time.With a stock market crash never far away, I think adopting a similar approach could be very profitable. As such, having some cash available and identifying high-quality companies prior to a market decline could be a worthwhile move.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 prospect of a stock market crashThere have been numerous market downturns during Warren Buffett’s investing career. In fact, they take place fairly regularly, with no bull market ever having lasted in perpetuity. This means that investors are likely to have the chance to buy high-quality companies at cheap prices at some point over the coming years. During their lifetimes, there are likely to be a number of buying opportunities caused by market falls.In the long run, following a strategy of buying shares during a market crash could be very profitable. It means that an investor essentially purchases stocks at prices that undervalue their long-term prospects. Since every stock market crash has been followed by a return to previous record highs, if that continues, it allows an investor to use market cycles to their advantage. The end result, as Buffett has shown in his career, can be market-beating returns that have a positive impact on an investor’s financial situation.Following Warren Buffett into high-quality stocksOf course, Warren Buffett does not simply buy cheap stocks during a market crash. Rather, he analyses industries and identifies the best companies. Clearly, what determines the best shares is very subjective. However, for Buffett it usually entails a strong competitive advantage that allows a company to earn higher margins and deliver a more resilient performance during challenging periods.Certainly, such businesses could experience difficult operating conditions caused by a weak economic outlook that prompted a market downturn. However, their relatively high quality means they are likely to survive a period of weaker sales growth. They may even be able to expand their market presence and grab market share at the expense of weaker rivals. The end result could be higher profits and a rising share price in the long run.Preparing for the next stock market crashWarren Buffett seems to be in a state of constant preparedness for the next market crash. His large cash position and his analysis of companies mean he is ready to pounce on high-quality businesses when they trade at low prices.While many investors may be feeling upbeat about the stock market’s outlook right now, a market crash can come out of nowhere. By preparing now and using it to their advantage, investors can follow in Buffett’s footsteps and may obtain higher returns than the wider stock market over the long run.

Semi Finalists confirmed after thrilling round at U20 World Championship

first_imgFriday Jun 8, 2018 Semi Finalists confirmed after thrilling round at U20 World Championship An enthralling climax to the pool stages of the World Rugby U20 Championship 2018 on Wednesday resulted in a semi-final line-up which sees England face South Africa in Narbonne and hosts France take on New Zealand in Perpignan, in a repeat of the 2017 semi-finals. There were a host of scintillating tries as the outstandingly high quality of this Championship continued on match-day three, which also marked World Rugby’s Keep Rugby Clean day at the tournament.  France produced a stirring performance in front of a sell-out crowd of 9,000 in Narbonne to record their third straight victory, overcoming South Africa 46-29. Defending champions New Zealand secured their semi-final place as Pool A winners and continued their winning run with a hard-fought 27-18 victory over rivals Australia before a vocal crowd of more than 10,000 in Perpignan. England maintained their perfect record with a comprehensive 35-10 victory over Scotland in Beziers to qualify for the semi-finals as the top ranked team.Italy missed out on a first semi-final despite a fine 30-26 win over Argentina. Elsewhere Georgia claimed the biggest scalp of their history with a 24-20 defeat of Ireland, but will still have to fight for their survival after finishing in the bottom four ranked teams. Earlier in the day Wales narrowly beat a resilient Japan 18-17 in Perpignan. The result means Japan will face Georgia, while Ireland take on Scotland in the other ninth place semi-final. The losers of these matches will face a relegation play-off in Beziers on 17 June.NEXT ROUND FIXTURES (12 June): SEMI FINALS: England U20 vs South Africa U2019:00 Stade d’Honneur du Parc des sports et de l’Amitie, NarbonneNew Zealand U20 vs France U2021:00 Stade Aime-Giral, Perpignan5th Place semi final 1Wales U20 vs Argentina U2014:00 Stade d’Honneur du Parc des sports et de l’Amitie, Narbonne9th Place semi final 1Ireland U20 vs Scotland U2016:00 Stade Aime-Giral, Perpignan5th Place semi final 2Italy U20 vs Australia U2016:30 Stade d’Honneur du Parc des sports et de l’Amitie, Narbonne9th Place semi final 2Georgia U20 vs Japan U2018:30 Stade Aime-Giral, PerpignanGeorgia vs IrelandFrance vs South AfricaNew Zealand vs AustraliaEngland vs ScotlandItaly vs ArgentinaWales vs Japancredit: world rugbyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Solidarity with Ohio prisoners

first_imgOver 200 people demonstrated outside the state prison in Marion, Ohio, May 2 to protest the conditions inside and demand prisoners who meet certain criteria be released. The prison drew national attention after 80 percent of the prisoners tested positive for COVID-19.Prisoners’ family members demonstrate outside Marion, Ohio, state prison on May 2. Photo: Finn ConlinConditions are now deplorable, with the prisoners only receiving two meals a day. Those meals do not meet the caloric intake or nutritional needs of an adult male. The excuse given is that staff needs extra time to sanitize. However, the more critical steps of requiring masks and social distancing have not been taken.The protesters demanded that all the 400 prisoners housed at the Marion Reintegration Center be given clemency by Gov. Mike DeWine. Most of them are deemed “low risk” and are within a year of their release date.“There is no reason to keep everybody there,” Kevin Ballou, one of the protest organizers and a former Marion prisoner, told Workers World. “It’s like a huge warehouse or a huge garage. People sleep 2 feet away from each other. Several have had to nurse each other back to health. People are bedridden.“One friend had to help an elder prisoner go to the bathroom and back to his cell. One we called ‘Old Man George’ passed away. He was always playing chess. No one knows what happened to him. The people in charge are not qualified to take care of human beings.  This isn’t just a criminal justice issue; it’s a humanitarian issue.”Speakers at the rally included Ballou and other former Marion prisoners, Cleveland City Councilmember Basheer Jones, and several family members of prisoners. People drove in from all over Ohio to take part in the protest. Some people who drove by were hostile, but many honked in support.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF hails UN committee’s position on Assange

first_img February 5, 2016 – Updated on March 8, 2016 RSF hails UN committee’s position on Assange Help by sharing this information RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is “extremely pleased” by the stand taken by the United Nations in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. In a report issued today, a UN committee of five independent experts said it regarded the Australian’s confinement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London as “arbitrary detention.”The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention said Assange has the “right to freedom of movement” and to “compensation.” However, the committee’s finding is not binding and the UK police have already reiterated that they will arrest Assange as soon as he sets foot outside the embassy. Newscenter_img Organisation © Photo AFP “Ever since the start of Julian Assange’s confinement inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, we have repeatedly said that Sweden’s judicial proceedings against Assange should not be the prelude to extradition to the United States,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“However, in the absence of guarantees, the possibility that the founder of WikiLeaks could be sent against his will to face criminal charges in the United States in connection with the leaks posted on the website is not only not negligible but in fact poses a major threat both to himself and, more broadly, to freedom of information.“We urge the British and Swedish authorities to heed this very clear message from the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, if only not to undermine the activities of this committee, which works extensively on the horrors committed in despotic countries.”Deloire added: “We also call on the United States to ensure that WikiLeaks and Assange enjoy the rights guaranteed by the Constitution’s First Amendment. It is vital that democracies do not disgrace themselves by violating the very principles on which they are founded.”last_img read more

ECISD not considering closing due to flu

first_img Pinterest ECISD not considering closing due to flu By admin – February 3, 2018 Previous articlePHS students tackling biomedical scienceNext articleMcDonald released from jail admin Local News Odessa High School’s Skylar Herrera (25) shoots against Permian’s Reyna Rayos (10) during the first half Tuesday night at the Permian Fieldhouse. Although several districts around the Permian Basin have closed due to flu, Ector County ISD doesn’t have any plans to do so at this time, Superintendent Tom Crowe said in an email.Director of Nursing Services Laura Mathew said the majority of district’s 32,000-plus students are still coming to school.“We’ve stepped up the cleaning, but we’re following the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidelines,” Mathew said. “They have specific guidelines about what schools should do during flu season. They specifically say schools do not need to close. They should step up the cleaning… For the most part, the flu virus is airborne. You could clean every surface, but tomorrow a child walks in with the flu, so you’re going to start all over again.”Mathew said attendance is being monitored for influenza like illness.The Centers for Disease Control website says:It is important to match your cleaning and disinfecting activities to the types of germs you want to remove or kill. Most studies have shown that the flu virus can live and potentially infect a person for up to 48 hours after being deposited on a surface. However, it is not necessary to close schools to clean or disinfect every surface in the building to slow the spread of flu. Also, if students and staff are dismissed because the school cannot function normally (e.g., high absenteeism during a flu outbreak), it is not necessary to do extra cleaning and disinfecting.Flu viruses are relatively fragile, so standard cleaning and disinfecting practices are sufficient to remove or kill them. Special cleaning and disinfecting processes, including wiping down walls and ceilings, frequently using room air deodorizers and fumigating, are not necessary or recommended. These processes can irritate eyes, noses, throats and skin; aggravate asthma; and cause other serious side effects. Twitter WhatsApp Facebook WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Facebooklast_img read more
