In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img See all posts by Jonathan Smith Image source: Getty Images Jonathan Smith does not own shares in any firm mentioned.

Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As far as the new decade has gone so far, it’s not off to a great start. We entered 2020 on after a resounding election victory that meant Brexit uncertainty might soon end. The FTSE 100 index was also performing well, and the economy didn’t look close to a recession.The Covid-19 pandemic quickly changed all of the above, and the FTSE 100 index is down around 25% year to date. But a decade is a long time, and we’re less than half a year into it. So for stock investors looking at the long term, below are my top three strategies for the decade.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…Buy defensiveWithout wishing to start off overly gloomy, my first idea would be to buy defensive stocks. Defensive stocks are those that perform well during a downturn. This is usually due to the products/services offered being a necessity for consumers and being bought regardless of the economic performance. Good examples of this are supermarkets such as J Sainsbury, and healthcare firms such as Astrazeneca. My rationale for this long-term play is that we recently ended the longest stock market bull run in history. So it may take a few years to get up to the speed of gains we saw in the past few years. We may recover most of the losses from the pandemic in the next year, but having this cautious tilt to your stock portfolio will definitely help you to sleep easier. Buy high growthThe ‘exciting’ firms of today can often be the stalwarts of tomorrow. Now obviously, if you knew that certain growing firms would be profitable buys, you’d simply buy them all. But you can never know that and high-growth firms are riskier to invest in. In order to counterbalance this risk, mix your investments into half a dozen growth firms. This means that even if some fail to really break through in the decade, having one that does (and doubles the share price) more than makes up for it.As examples, take a look at the story and growth behind Ocado, Flutter Entertainment and Games Workshop (actually a FTSE 250 firm). I wrote more about the merits of high-growth businesses here, and how they can aid early retirement.Buy safe dividend stocksUntil recently, most FTSE 100 firms were paying dividends, and exceptionally few had the need to cut them. Yet due to the pandemic, even income-paying stalwarts such as ITV and Royal Dutch Shell have slashed them.For some firms, it will take a while before the board has enough confidence to resume paying dividends. So when looking at the next decade, it’s important to buy safe dividends wherever possible. Adding stocks that pay out dividends is vital to support your other strategies.High-growth firms usually look to reinvest profits to support further expansion, and defensive stocks usually don’t offer high dividend yields. So seeking income is wise to support the other two ideas.Overall, my top three themes for the decade aim to cover most scenarios. Now let’s sit back and see what happens!

The suburban context of the project offers no substantial natural view or meaningful topographic variation. Hence, the spatial organization of the project is fundamentally transformed to introduce two connected semi-courtyards. Instead of looking outward at a non existing natural vista or impressive view, the project is shifting its visual focus to the inner yards, arriving at maximum transparency of the architectural thresholds where the interior spaces meet the interiorized yards.Save this picture!SectionThe redefinition of inside/outside relation is also deriving the material condition of the architectural surfaces.

Free Chelsea Manning!

first_imgNo, this is no mistake by our editors — repeating a headline used seven times in Workers World since this brave transgender soldier and whistleblower Chelsea Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison seven years ago. It is, however, one we didn’t expect to repeat after she received a presidential commutation of her sentence in January 2017.The U.S. government is persecuting Manning because it hates the truth and refuses to share that truth with the people. Washington despises whistleblowers like Manning, Edward Snowden and the media organization WikiLeaks who expose the crimes of the CIA, Pentagon and State Department — crimes they commit worldwide to protect and expand the property and profits of the super-rich who rule the U.S.While on active duty in Iraq as an intelligence analyst, Manning released 700,000 classified and sensitive military and diplomatic documents. They revealed details about modern imperialist wars never before made public. This included the infamous “Collateral Murder” tape of a U.S. “Apache” attack helicopter firing on civilians in Baghdad in 2007, killing 11 adults, including two Reuters journalists.By revealing the crimes of U.S. imperialism, Manning and WikiLeaks carried out a service to humanity. No one should be punished for exposing crimes against humanity. By releasing this truth, they set an example that can inspire anyone working for the U.S. state apparatus — its military or civilian organizations — who has any sort of feeling of solidarity with the world’s oppressed. Manning was ordered this March to testify before a grand jury investigating those who are trying to reveal these crimes. She refused to say more than she already had at her own trial.U.S. investigators are trying to build a case against WikiLeaks and against its founder, Julian Assange, who has been in asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012. The U.S. hoped to use Manning’s testimony against Assange and his organization. Called to testify March 7, Manning objected to the secret nature of the federal grand jury and refused to answer on constitutional grounds. The next day she was arrested and placed in a civil prison, where she may be forced to remain for the life of the grand jury — potentially 18 months — unless she agrees to testify.Manning has said she will refuse to talk. This is a heroic position for any political prisoner and even more so for Manning because of the increased oppression and brutal treatment to which transgender people are often subjected in prison. For all of the points made above, Workers World repeats the demand we made during the seven years Manning was in military prison: Free Chelsea Manning!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Has the Housing Market Reached Bubble Status Again?

first_imgSubscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home Prices Housing Bubble Jed Kolko Trulia 2014-03-31 Tory Barringer Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago With year-over-year price increases continuing on a double-digit course despite recent slowdowns, the ever-present question has once again come to the fore for market commentators and analysts: Has the housing market reached bubble status once again?The answer—at least, according to Trulia chief economist Jed Kolko—is both yes and no.In the company’s latest quarterly Bubble Watch report, Kolko estimates national home prices are still around 5 percent undervalued when examining long-term fundamentals like historical prices, incomes, and rents. While ongoing improvements in prices have brought the market close to a tipping point, he notes that it’s far cry from the 39 percent overvaluation in the first quarter of 2006.“Even though recent double-digit price gains look unsustainable, current national price levels are not cause for alarm,” Kolko said in a blog post. “Sharp price gains, like we’ve had in 2012 and 2013, are not the sign of a bubble unless price levels look high relative to fundamentals.”Furthermore, “the slowdown in price gains make[s] it less likely that we’re heading for another bubble,” he added.While the national market is still undervalued, conditions vary widely at the local level. According to Trulia, out of the 100 largest metro markets, home prices are overvalued in 19, including eight of the 11 largest California metros. The greatest danger is along the state’s southern coast, in markets like Orange County, Los Angeles, and Riverside-San Bernardino—which make up three of the five most overvalued markets in the country. (The two remaining slots go to Honolulu and Austin.)While the number of overvalued housing markets is on the rise, Kolko again says historical perspective is needed: “In 2014 Q1, prices were overvalued in 19 of the 100 largest metros, which is the highest number since 2009 Q4; furthermore, prices were overvalued by more than 10 percent in 4 large metros, which is the highest number since 2008 Q4.However, at the height of the bubble, all 100 were overvalued, and 91 were overvalued by more than 10 percent.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: Fannie Mae Increases Fines for Late or Inaccurate Reporting Next: Foreclosure Sales to Play ‘Diminishing Role’ in 2014 Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Has the Housing Market Reached Bubble Status Again?

The Single Bench of Justice N. Anand Venkatesh observed that the University does not have the power to fix/ waive fees and the same is decided by the State Government. Further, he remarked that the Court does not have the expertise to determine fees. It said, “This Court is aware of the fact that there is a very limited jurisdiction vested with this Court when it comes to fixation of fees. Fees is fixed after taking in to consideration a lot of factors and this Court is not an expert to sit over in judgments and re-determine the fees. Any such exercise will amount to over stretching the jurisdiction under Article 226 of Constitution of India.” In this backdrop the Court directed that the matter for re-determination of fees be placed before the Government, as any decision taken by the Government in this regard will ultimately bind the University. The Government has been directed to consider the students’ representation and give a solution by way of passing an order, within three weeks. The same can thereafter be placed before the Syndicate, which may pass a resolution and in turn the University can inform the decision to the students. By adopting this process, the Bench said, “the interest of all the stakeholders can be ascertained and this Court can thereafter pass a final order in this writ petition.” The Petitioner-students of the Ambedkar Law University had challenged a circular issued by the University, directing them to pay the semester fees in two installments.Over 90 Students Of School Of Excellence In Law Move Madras HC Against Levy Of Utility Fee Amid Suspension Of Physical Classes They had contended that since only online classes are being taken by the University, they are liable to pay only Tuition fees. They argued that they are not utilizing the facilities and therefore additional fees charged under ten more heads is not justified, more particularly, considering the financial constraints faced due to the pandemic situation. The University on the other hand submitted that it had considered the financial constraints faced by the students and that is the reason why the students were asked to pay the fees in two installments. Further, the fees charged under various heads was in the nature of “fixed cost” and it will be incurred by the University whether the facilities are utilized or not. While the Court has asked the State Government to decide the matter within three weeks, it has extended the deadline for payment of first installment.

Meet the McCain children

first_imgLaura Segall/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — It’s been said that when a person runs for president, the whole family runs for president.For the McCains, that meant nine people involved in a complex 2008 campaign against eventual President Barack Obama.John McCain, wife Cindy and all seven McCain children entered the public eye at the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minnesota.But who are they?The McCain household, like so many in America, is a blend. Navigating through the McCain family album might require a road map.When John McCain married his first wife, Carol, he adopted her sons from a previous marriage. Doug, 58, was a Navy pilot like his father and now is a captain for American Airlines. Andy, 56, is a Vanderbilt graduate and chief operating officer at the family beer distribution company, Hensley & Co. He also has ties to many Arizona sports, including as former chairman of the board for the Fiesta Bowl and on Arizona’s host committee for the Super Bowl.John and Carol McCain had eldest daughter Sidney, who is now 51 and worked in the music business in Toronto while her father ran his 2008 campaign. She was born in 1966, one year before her father’s plane was shot down over Vietnam.After John and Carol McCain divorced in 1980 and John married second wife Cindy, they had three children, Meghan, Jack and Jimmy. They adopted another child, Bridget, from Bangladesh.Meghan, 33, has become the most visible of McCain’s seven children. The Columbia University grad ascended to the spotlight as a constant presence on her father’s 2008 campaign. She wrote about her experiences on the road at McCainBlogette.com, cultivated a following on Twitter and eventually wrote two books, including “My Dad, John McCain,” a children’s book released during the campaign. Meghan now works for ABC News and is a host on “The View.”I couldnt get through your book, I tried, Meghan McCain shared with former Vice President Joe Biden on The View on Wednesday. Your son Beau had the same cancer that my father was diagnosed with six months ago. I think about Beau almost every day.PlayBiden comforts emotional Meghan McCain about her father’s cancer diagnosisMcCain’s two younger sons both served in the military. Jimmy, a 30-year-old who is an ex-Marine, served a tour in Iraq.Jack, 32, graduated from the Naval Academy and shares a love for NASCAR with his mother. He shares a name, John “Jack” Sidney McCain IV, with his father.Jack’s wife, Renee Swift McCain, was an Air Force Reserve captain. The two were married in 2013. She tweeted, “I wish you fair winds and following seas ahead,” after her father-in-law’s death and shared a photo of herself with her husband and the senator in Washington.Jimmy was married in April 2016, with his mother sharing a photo of the family on Twitter.As for Bridget, her story with the McCains began in 1993 when Cindy visited Bangladesh and met the baby at an orphanage, who had a severe cleft palate.Cindy decided to bring the baby back to the United States, where she underwent years of surgery. Today, she’s a normal 27-year-old, but the surgeries she underwent to to fix her cleft palate made her mother an advocate for the charity Operation Smile.John McCain said he likes to get the seven kids together at least once a year — Republican convention or not.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
