The FTSE 100 dropped over 3% yesterday. Today it is down by another percentage point. In times like these, the question of whether buying dips in the market beats regular investing often gets asked. The answer may appear obvious. After all, buying dips means buying cheap. Regular investing could mean buying just before a dip or when the market is expensive. Should investors not aim to buy low and sell high?A strategy of buying low and selling high makes intuitive sense, especially when we look at the performance of the FTSE 100 index.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…But the chart above shows the price of the index only. It does not account for the dividends that are paid by the companies in the index. The average annual dividend yield on the FTSE 100 from June 1993 to November 2018 was 3.47% or about 0.28% per month.An investor in the FTSE 100 will receive these dividends if they buy all 100 stocks themselves or a fund that tracks the index. If dividends are being reinvested then the performance of the investment will not look like the chart above.Dipping inLet’s compare the two strategies. First, we will invest £100 every month in the FTSE 100 starting in March 1995 and finishing in January 2020. Second, we will look at a strategy of investing after the price of the FTSE 100 has fallen at least 5% in a month. To keep the total invested amounts similar, in the second strategy, £100 is either invested or banked until the index has fallen by 5%.In total of £29,800 gets invested buying the dips and £30,000 in regular investments over the 25 or so years. How about the performance of the two strategies? Well, the regular investor ends up with £64,359 compared to £58,270 for the dip buyer. Along for the rideOf the two strategies, regular investing comes out on top. The message is clear, don’t wait to buy the dip, just keep investing. The more time you are in the market, the more your money grows, assuming dividends are being paid and reinvested. The more you try to time the market, the less time your money has to grow.I used data for the entire FTSE 100 for this exercise. There are some stocks that have higher dividend yields than the 3.47% average, so a diversified portfolio of those could have done even better.Also bear in mind that this experiment was carried out with 25 years of monthly returns. The longer your investment time horizon, the more likely you are to do well. Looking back over the FTSE 100 price chart should make this point clear. If you only had two or three years to invest and you started around 1999 or 2007 you would have done badly. Long-term investing is the key to success. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”last_img read more

Why I think this market crash share is a contrarian buy

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Jabran Khan | Tuesday, 18th August, 2020 | More on: JET2 Why I think this market crash share is a contrarian buy Enter Your Email Address 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.

See all posts by Jabran Khancenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images Due to the current market crash caused by the pandemic, airlines are suffering. Customer demand and sales have taken a massive hit. It seems the ability to book a holiday and travel worry-free may be a thing of the past due to Covid-19.Market crash opportunityA share I am particularly interested in right now and consider a contrarian buy is Dart Group (LSE:DTG). DTG is the holding company for its subsidiary Jet2 and is recognised at the UK’s third-largest scheduled airline. Another subsidiary of DTG linked to Jet2 is Jet2 Holidays which offers customers package holidays as opposed to just flights. 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…When the market crashed back in February, DTG’s share price took a mammoth hit. In mid-February, its share price was close to 1,950p per share. At the lowest point, DTG’s share price had decreased nearly 85% to just over 300p. Since this low point, DTG’s share price has recovered over 100% to currently trade at close to 650p per share. I feel this is a great opportunity to pick up cheap shares right now.Recent performance In July, DTG released full-year results for 2020 ending 31 March. Despite the market crash and pandemic affecting current performance, the earlier results were very promising. Group operating profit was up 43% while group revenue was up over 20%. Jet2 flew 14% more customers in 2020 compared to 2019.Full-year results prior to the crash may seem irrelevant. DTG has also consistently provided trading updates to provide transparency to its investors throughout the crash. Among the measures to ward off financial troubles were the cancellation of a final dividend payment. DTG also moved to ensure a healthy cash reserve with government support of £300m that would be used if needed.Dart Group also issued 29.78m shares in May, which helped raise over £170m to help strengthen its balance sheet. Furthermore, DTG sold its distribution and logistics business, Fowler & Welch, at the end of May. This bought in an additional £98m. Overall, DTG is in a good position financially and has healthy cash reserves.My verdictMake no mistake, airline shares are considered risky right now. There are some airlines I would not recommend. I understand that travelling and the holiday market could change forever. That being said, I feel Dart Group (with its Jet2 subsidiaries) represents a great market crash share at such a cheap price. Yesterday’s announcement of over 100 pilots being made redundant is unfortunate but not a deal breaker for me. I simply see this as a move in response to changing market conditions.Looking back at its recent full-year results as well as its past performance there is not much to dislike. Revenue has been increasing year on year for the past five years. In addition, profit has been increasing year on year for the previous four years. Of course, Covid-19 will mean this trend may be broken for the current year but I am not too worried. Long term I feel DTG is a healthy business that is well placed to return to normality over time. If you like a contrarian buy this could be one for you. Jabran Khan has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Waikanae House / Herriot Melhuish O’Neill Architects

Simplicity is deceptively complex at Herriot Melhuish O’Neill Architects’ (HMOA) Waikanae House which won a housing award at the 2017 NZIA Wellington Architecture Awards. The NZIA judging panel observed that the simple external forms of the structure contain a hidden complexity within. “Viewed on approach this house appears to be a simple composition of box forms. However, on entering and circulating through it, the composition reveals surprises, subtle complexities and a deft handling that responds to the site and the client needs.”Save this picture!Ground Level PlanNow a finalist in the 2017 NZIA New Zealand Architecture Awards, the Waikanae House was designed by HMOA director Max Herriot and architect Oliver Markham. The architects’ careful design and sensitive landscaping means this elevated beachfront holiday home sits comfortably in its seaside environment while still capturing panoramic sea views towards Kapiti Island and framed vistas of the Tararua Ranges.Save this picture!© Andy SpainThe judges said: “From the seaward side it sits horizontally in clever contrast to the verticality of the landward view. In a sense, it inverts the form of Kapiti Island to which it faces. Cuts through the form, glazed and open, capture landward and seaward views. The Waikanae house presents, both simply and complexly, a very well-composed and compelling architectural outcome.”Save this picture!© Andy SpainThe home is made up of a main house with two bedrooms, a bathroom, living areas and a roof top lounge and deck, plus a separate two-bedroom guest wing on top of the garage.Save this picture!© Andy SpainThe design of the house comprises macrocarpa timber ‘volumes’ to create sheltered spaces for living and entertaining.

Mumia speaks on Mona, Pam and Monica: Harriet’s granddaughters

first_imgHarriet Tubman served as a spy and a scout for the First South Carolina Volunteers, a regiment of escaped slaves in the Civil War.Transcribed from the March 22 taped message from Mumia Abu-Jamal “from inside Prison Nation,” recorded by Noel Hanrahan of prisonradio.org.March, we are told, is Women’s History Month. We are here to celebrate the lives of several revolutionary women, but also to recognize a simple, undeniable truth: Without women, there would be no months to celebrate, for women gave birth to the world.Harriet Tubman was one of the greatest freedom fighters in history, for she brought forth hundreds of souls from the prison house of slavery, bringing them north over the dreaded Mason-Dixon Line. And after the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act, bringing them to the far north of Canada.I say that these three women — Mona, Pam and Monica — are like Harriet for they all fight for freedom almost every day, against great odds. And they keep on pushing — no matter what.Ramona AfricaRamona Africa was a young college student, trying to “learn the law” at Temple University. She was invited to come to City Hall, to actually see what went on in a MOVE trial. She was wholly unprepared for what she saw, for nothing she’d read in law books could explain the naked brutality of the law that she saw practiced in City Hall courtrooms.She witnessed a railroading of MOVE men and women, and it turned her away from her chosen profession of lawyer. In short, what she saw MOVE members experience in pre-trial hearings and at trial repulsed her. Indeed, it radicalized her.She entered court as a mild-mannered college student. What she saw and heard turned her into a committed revolutionary, Ramona Africa, MOVE member.But that wasn’t all. As she came closer to MOVE, and the teachings of John Africa, and as she worked for the freedom of MOVE members, she didn’t know that the government was planning what they considered MOVE’s “final solution.”On May 13, 1985, she found out. The world found out, when city, state and federal government agencies conspired to bomb MOVE from a helicopter.When the fire had eaten its full, eleven men, women and children were either shot or burned to death. Their dogs were killed. An entire city block looked like Dresden, the eastern German city bombed in World War II.Mona, burned badly on her arms, was one of two survivors of the firebombing in West Philadelphia. She was also the only person ever imprisoned for “riot.”It’s fitting that she never believed in the law that she once studied.She believed in revolution. She believes in it today.Pam AfricaPam Africa was a light-hearted party girl until she met MOVE. They were neighbors of hers. She wasn’t really into them — until she saw them attacked by police. She followed her heart and warmed to them. The closer she got, the more she found herself targeted and threatened.She would not ignore what she saw. She couldn’t! She didn’t run away. She moved closer to MOVE and to John Africa.Pam Africa — guided by her powerful heart and the power of her love for MOVE people — became a MOVE person. MOVE became her brothers and sisters, her family. They respected her fighting spirit so much that MOVE’s founder John Africa named her Minister of Confrontation.She attended court hearings and was constantly faced with threats of violence by cops for her MOVE advocacy. In defense of others, she’s had her teeth knocked out, her leg broken. But she kept on scrapping.She isn’t just a fighter. When she speaks, she sets crowds on fire. She is a master organizer. She gets them Ona Move!For the young generation of activists, such as Black Lives Matter, she is known respectfully and affectionately as “Mama Pam.” She is a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. And like Harriet Tubman, her mind, her soul, her fist are stuck on freedom.Monica MooreheadMonica Moorehead is a leading member of Workers World Party, a national Marxist collective. Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, authors of the “Communist Manifesto,” wrote, “The Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.”It is a dictum that Monica, and her comrades, take to heart. They work with a wide range of people, trying to organize them into movements of resistance. From repression against labor unions to a new wave of women’s movements; from the scourge of mass incarceration, from the cancer of police repression against Black and Latino America, to the state terrorism encapsulated in the racist death penalty; from imperial wars in Iraq to the drug wars against innocents abroad, Monica and her comrades have been there, joining with and giving voice to movements that seek to build new worlds.Monica comes from a long line of resistance to racism and repression. She was born in Jim-Crow-era Alabama, the granddaughter of school teachers and daughter of two college professors. As a high school student and member of the school band, she caused a ruckus by refusing to play “Dixie.” As a young woman, she was a supporter of the Prisoner Solidarity Committee and sold copies of the Black Panther newspaper. Her parents were part of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, led by Rev. Martin Luther King. Monica remembers her mother, a brilliant musician, being thrown out of a whites-only bathroom by cops.From a youth of resistance to a life of resistance, that’s the story of Monica Moorehead. She is an editor of the revolutionary weekly, Workers World. She has co-authored and edited several books, including “Marxism, Reparations and the Black Freedom Struggle” and the reprint of “A Voice from Harper’s Ferry” by Black revolutionary Osborne Anderson, who accompanied John Brown on his raid on a federal armory to arm Black slaves. In 2000, she helped organize a historic Free Mumia rally at Madison Square Garden, and in 2016 she ran for U.S. president on the Workers World ticket.Who says revolutionary women don’t rock the world?Women build the world. They surely got a right to rock it!Harriet’s granddaughters — Mona Africa, Pam Africa and Monica Moorehead.The audio tape of Mumia’s talk can be accessed at tinyurl.com/lxvkdqw.WW photos: Joseph PietteFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Community demands Sanctuary Schools in Philadelphia, a ‘sanctuary city’

first_img“Philadelphia has declared itself a ‘sanctuary city,’ but how can it be a sanctuary city without its schools being sanctuaries for all students?” asked Erika Guadalupe Nuñez of Juntos at a well-attended March 1 press conference outside the School District of Philadelphia headquarters. Erika Guadalupe Nuñez speaking, March 1.A major demand being directed at school officials is to set clear rules and better train staff and teachers on restrictions against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) involvement in city schools. City Council members Helen Gym and Kendra Brooks spoke in support of the campaign, which began after ICE officers detained a pregnant mother over a year ago. She had just dropped off her child at Eliza B. Kirkbride Elementary School in February 2020 in the Passyunk Square neighborhood of Philadelphia. The action caused ripples of fear through immigrant and refugee communities.The recent press conference launched the Sanctuary Schools campaign, whose brochure points out: “Sanctuary Schools can and should be utilized as a vessel towards healing the traumatic impact of a global pandemic, racist government administration and long-term effects of heightened immigration enforcement. [W]hat we are asking for is not new. Schools have been used for too long as colonial tools to assimilate and criminalize youth and their families. We say no more!” Juntos, a community-led Latinx immigrant organization, is promoting the five-point campaign for increased reinvestment in education, schools free of criminalization, culturally appropriate and responsive teaching curricula, accessible schools and representative teachers, and trauma-informed schools that practice justice and develop social and emotional learning spaces.

Frogs First leadership applications available

One track is two days, and the other is the traditional four-day event.The two-day track omits events such as the Chancellor’s Assembly.Bender said he wants to encourage students who are looking for a low time commitment leadership position to apply.“It’s like a stepping-stone level of leadership,” Bender said.Bures said students shouldn’t let their worries keep them from applying.“They’re going to be helpful to first-year students no matter what happens,” Bures said.Frogs First is scheduled for Aug. 18-21.

Fair pay needs to be restored and if it is not then we wont have a ‘next generation’ of gardai to take up those positions because they will have left the force”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Sgt Treacy gave his comments to the Limerick Post following the march to the Dail by more than 600 garda sergeants and inspectors.Gardai then handed a letter in to the Dail outlining their concerns and encouraging Government to restore garda pay, 25 per cent of which has been lost since 2008, they say.“This is of course a national issue and not just something for local, it’s throughout the force and all after we fully complied with the requirements of the Haddington Road agreement.”Sgt Treacy referenced that gardai are aggrieved after the emergency legislation which was passed last December effectively “put a stop to any increments due and froze everything until July 2018.”“It’s the stealth way that the Government did things and effectively stonewalled us in our negotiations, that has most members and indeed wider groups aggrieved.“We are not looking for increases, just restoration of pay”, Sgt Treacy said.As it is illegal for gardai to protest in uniform or strike, AGSI members from Limerick joined the hundreds of other AGSI law enforcement officers by dressing in plain clothes but in the colour of blue.The AGSI are planning three weeks of protests which will escalate to a form of work-to-rule, but not a strike, if there is no engagement by Government.That decision will be taken at a special delegate conference at the end of June.“We will go back to our members and decide what next to do”, Sgt Treacy said.
