Stock market crash: why I’d grab this rare chance to buy cheap shares Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Friday, 14th August, 2020 Source: Getty Images Despite the recent market rebound, there are still a relatively large number of cheap shares that could deliver high returns in the long run.Certainly, their prices could fall further in the short run due to risks such as a continued rise in global coronavirus cases. However, the recovery potential of the stock market suggests that buying undervalued companies today can lead to high returns compared to other assets.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…Moreover, share prices are rarely as cheap as they are at the moment in many cases. Grabbing wide margins of safety that may be temporary in nature could, therefore, be a logical move.A rare opportunity to buy cheap sharesThe last time there were so many cheap shares available to buy was probably during the global financial crisis in 2008/09. Although the recent market rebound means some sectors now appear to be fully valued, other industries continue to have extremely undervalued shares on offer.In some cases, they trade well below their historic average valuations. This could indicate that they offer good value for money, and that investors have priced in many of the risks they face.Such opportunities are generally rare. Over a decade has elapsed since the last global bear market and recession, and many investors are likely to be able to count on one hand how many times they’ve experienced such periods in their own lives.Therefore, taking advantage of the opportunities available today could be a sound move that allows you to buy cheap shares and sell them at a later date when they’re relatively likely to trade at higher prices.Recovery potentialBuying cheap shares today could allow investors to capitalise on a sustained recovery over the long term. As per the global financial crisis, and other past bear markets, a recovery in the stock market’s price level seems likely.Even though there are risks facing the world economy, the impact of stimulus packages, such as quantitative easing and tax changes in many major economies, could lead to a strong recovery over the coming years.As such, focusing your capital on undervalued shares could be a more profitable strategy than buying other assets such as cash and bonds. Although less risky assets may offer a higher chance of a return of capital, their profit potential may be very limited in an era when interest rates look set to persist at low levels.In fact, fixed-income securities and cash savings accounts may erode your spending power if monetary policy measures, such as quantitative easing, prompt a period of higher inflation.While buying cheap shares today may not necessarily feel like a natural move for any investor to make, history suggests that it’s a logical step for those individuals with long-term horizons. Some stocks are rarely this cheap, and could offer high total returns in the coming years. See all posts by Peter Stephenslast_img read more

DeSantis widens quarantine order for travelers from New York City area

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Travelers who fit the description also must report close contacts they’ve had with anyone in the state of Florida.“This is important because after all the hard work, we don’t want it to now get seeded here as people flee the hot zone,” DeSantis said Tuesday in a live stream briefing from his office in Tallahassee. After initially ordering new travelers to Florida airports from COVID-19 hotspots to quarantine after arriving in the state, Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday widened the order to anyone who traveled to Florida from the New York City area in the past three weeks. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply DeSantis also said Tuesday that Florida Surgeon General Scott Rivkees would be issuing a health advisory that encourages all residents 65 or older to stay home for the next 14 days to minimize their exposure to coronavirus. The advisory also applies to those with serious underlying medical conditions, such as chronic lung disease, moderate to severe asthma, serious heart conditions, compromised immune systems and severe obesity, DeSantis said.“As we’ve seen with this virus, the folks who are 65 and plus are the ones who have the best chance to suffer a negative outcome,” DeSantis said. “That’s disproportionately so when you talk about fatalities. So we want to make sure those folks are protected.”As of Tuesday afternoon, the Florida Department of Health reported 1,412 COVID-19 cases in the state, including 18 deaths.COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus. The disease has caused at least 684 deaths in the U.S., with more than 52,800 confirmed cases in the country. COVID-19 symptoms appear within two to 14 days after exposure and include fever, cough, runny nose and difficulty breathing.Most people who have it develop only mild symptoms. But some people, usually the elderly and those with other medical complications, develop more severe symptoms, including pneumonia, which can be fatal. The Anatomy of Fear On Monday night, DeSantis ordered travelers from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut to isolate or quarantine for 14 days or the duration of the person’s presence in Florida, whichever is shorter.

Seniors deserted the campus and left an array of elaborate puzzles, mazes, quests, and other goodies all over for underclassmen to devote their entire day to solving.“It’s a very strange tradition. The whole experience is kind of ridiculous and I mean that in the best way possible,” said Brynan Qiu, a 2015 Caltech graduate who is facilitating a Zelda inspired game.Who said science can’t be fun? Ditch Day is quite the spectacle that is inspired by imagination and fueled by fun. All of the classes are cancelled and it is considered an institute holiday that conveniently kicks off a well deserved four day weekend for the students this year.From rappelling down one of the campus’s tallest buildings, to solving a lifesize Rubik’s Cube, to stuffing students in life-size hamster balls to race — there were plenty of challenges. Not to mention interactive puzzles that did not resemble the kind you have on your coffee table.“I’m responsible for jumping in this big inflatable ball and chasing people around while they try and find clues,” said Caltech student Chris Hallacy.Ditch Day has taken on a new angle since its inception in the early 1930’s and in recent years it has transitioned into being inspired by themes of the digital age.According to Caltech’s media department, the original Ditch Day “stacks”— a Caltech euphemism for “locks”— were devices installed, or measures taken, by seniors to keep underclassmen out of their rooms when they were off campus for the day.The premise of stacking elaborate puzzles was to keep underclassmen from entering their rooms and back then, “stacking” took on a literal definition when students actually stacked furniture and other items from floor to ceiling in a standard prank fashion.The idea of “stacking” has since morphed into what is now campus wide activities that extend beyond the dorm room and are typically inspired by books, video games, TV shows, or movies with several small teams teams competing against each other.“Teams do get competitive but everyone ends up hanging out and having a good laugh. We take it seriously, but not too seriously,” said Qiu.It’s safe to say that this is one time of the year that these future scientists and engineers really let loose and fun with their peers and this year’s Ditch Day started out with a classic twist.“They duct-taped a student to the tree this morning. It’s all in fun and games at the end of the day,” said Caltech Senior Media Relations Manager Deborah Williams-Hedges.This age old tradition that is signature to Caltech’s college life ultimately gives the seniors their last “hoorah” and create memories for the underclassmen.“The stacks get more creative and more fun every year. It’s a good send off from the graduating class,” said Hallacy.

The festival is organised by a collective of Limerick musicians, promoters and producers within the city in association with City Of Culture and features some exciting new underground acts and labels from around the world.by Eric [email protected] Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Fatima performs on Saturday October 4Prima Volta, the name was conjured up by the ever creative John Lillis, AKA DJ/ producer mynameisj0hn. In a piece of music, a part performed prima volta is a part performed one time and one time only. Limerick’s Prima Volta Music Festival this weekend October 3 to 5 is also a one time chance to see some of the most creative new producers, performers, labels and DJs from the UK, US and beyond perform together over one weekend in the same city. Organiser Peter Curtin helped Limerick Post with their many enquiries this week.The festival will feature live performances, DJ sets and film screenings with a chance to meet the acts at a lunchtime get-together on Saturday. Peter Curtin explains,“There is something there for everyone, if you like dance, definitely the Friday night will be your cup of tea with DJs, producers and an MC, so there will be a live element to it also. Saturday night’s show is with the Eglo Records Live Band with headliner Fatima, whicch could be described as a jazz group. The DJs on the night will be playing all kinds of music. It’s a dream lineup to have, couldn’t ask for better. In the space of three days you can see a variety of acts that have been playing all the major festivals – lot of these acts played together at Dimensions Festival in Croatia. There were great reports about them from there.”Friday (Stray)PRIMA Volta have invited the groundbreaking Hoya:Hoya club night, one of the most prestigious club-nights in Europe to Limerick, hosts to some of the most innovative DJs and producers around.

This is all exacerbating an already under resourced GP service, due to the Financial Emergency Measures in Public Interest (FEMPI) cuts imposed a number of years ago. It is expected that ever present issues to be widely discussed and debated over the weekend.Limerick Dr Emmet Kerin, President of the NAGP said “since 2013 the NAGP has warned that General Practice is in crisis as a result of FEMPI. We are now seeing a broken health system nationwide where newpatients are unable to sign on to GP practices as they are beyond capacity. Here in Cork, Macroom is completely closed to new patients”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A ballot was issued to members last week. The results speak for themselves. It was asked to members ‘Would you sign a new GP contract that has not been equally negotiated by the NAGP?’ Ofthe 1152 responses, 84% of our members said No, they would not sign a new GP contract.We know GPs are becoming increasingly vexed at the lack of action in terms of negotiating a new contract.The aim of the NAGP AGM is to promote proven solutions that have worked in other jurisdictions. Keynote speakers Professor Paul Grundy and Dr Jack Cochran will address the many crises facingGPs today and the additional crises in the wider health care system.Its believed that the Slaintecare report has the recommendations required to tilt the healthcare service into an efficient, low cost,high value, population health management model.Its hoped through the auspices of Professor Grundy and our members who are early converters to a population health management model, that the tide can be changed and #savegeneralpractice.More about health here.

In this multi-media age, people worldwide are also joining in online – through the website www.novena.ie, submitting their prayers and even lighting virtual candles.The Novena begins on June 14th and continues until June 22nd at the Redemptorist Church on Limerick’s South Circular Road. There will be 10 celebrations on each of the nine days – the earliest at 7am, the last one at 10.30pm.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It promises to be a packed programme. There are opportunities for confession and counselling, As well as a Novena celebration for the sick and the elderly, there is a blessing of babies and young children and a special celebration for First Communion classes. Fr Seamus Enright, Rector of the Redemptorists says the Novena is ‘a festival of faith, a community at prayer.’ There is the opportunity to write prayers of petition and thanksgiving and a sample of these are read at the Novena every day. ‘During the Novena, we are not just praying for ourselves, but for the entire community,’ he says.Fr Enright borrows words and images from people to describe the Novena: ‘I’m a bit of a magpie when it comes to describing the Novena. A man described it as “the Munster final of religion.” A lady told me it was like “spiritual spa.” She felt refreshed, reenergized after attending every day for nine days. People constantly tell me their faith is nourished at the Novena, that they find spiritual energy there.’Fr Enright says, ‘the Redemptorists at Novena time is an iconic place for thousands of people, the spiritual equivalent of the LIT Gaelic Grounds and Thomand Park.’   Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Email Print Twitter TAGSlimerickRedemptorists Novena WhatsApp Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Linkedincenter_img WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Previous articleLong overdue work at Janesboro churchNext articleRadical shift needed with 257 homeless in Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live LimerickNewsAll roads lead to the Redemptorists NovenaBy Alan Jacques – June 6, 2019 524 Facebooklast_img read more
