Here’s how I’d use the stock market crash to boost my chances of making a million

first_img Enter Your Email Address Matthew Dumigan | Tuesday, 5th May, 2020 Every stock market crash presents an opportunity to buy good quality shares on the cheap. At the time of writing, the FTSE 100 index has shed around 24% of its value since the start of 2020.As a result, many UK stocks are trading on cheap valuations relative to pre-crash levels, meaning there could be some bargains out there. With that in mind, here’s how I’d use the stock market crash to boost my chances of making a million.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 cheap sharesIf you’re going to succeed in making a million in the stock market, it certainly helps to buy stocks while they’re going cheap.Towards the end of last week, the FTSE 100 dipped back below 6,000, meaning investors have another opportunity to cash in on bargain shares before any future market rebound.Eventually, the stock market will recover, as it always has done, and buying shares while they’re cheap means that when this happens, you’ll profit from a rise in prices across the board and kickstart the process of compounding returns.Be ready for another fallA word of caution though, share prices may plunge further in the short term as volatility looks set to plague the stock market. This is even more likely considering the current tension between the US and China, which provoked the sell-off at the end of last week.That said, it pays to be optimistic. So, I’d see a further tumble in the stock market as another opportunity to buy bargain shares that will boost my chances of making a million.Nevertheless, those eager to make such a sum of money needn’t worry about market volatility in the short term. In reality, it’s never going to be a smooth, straight line upwards.Hold for the long termThat’s why it’s so important to hold your investments for the long term, especially if you’re intent on making a million.It’s worth remembering that for investing genius Warren Buffett, it took decades for his wealth to amount to what it is today. As The Motley Fool’s twitter team illustrate:96% of Warren Buffett’s net worth was accumulated after his 65th birthday. That’s how compounding works.— The Motley Fool (@themotleyfool) October 2, 2019Following in Buffett’s footsteps, the key to making a million is to unleash the miracle of compound returns. To give you an example, assuming a growth rate of 9% and an initial lump sum investment of £1,000, investing £250 a month will make you a millionaire after 38 years. In my opinion, the power of interest and time is unmatched when it comes to increasing wealth over the long term.Ultimately, investing in cheap UK shares that exhibit strong earnings potential, continued growth prospects, and innovative business strategies will kickstart your journey to financial freedom.That’s why I’d look upon this stock market crash as an opportunity to boost my chances of making a million!

Image source: Getty Images. Owners of Lamprell (LSE: LAM) shares may be buoyed by their very recent stellar performance.  Rocketing upwards a massive 179% in the last week, shares in the FTSE-listed oil and gas support services firm may be signalling a turnaround after five years of sustained decline.Investors eyeing up opportunities for future capital appreciation to make millions may be looking at Lamprell shares with interest. After all, it’s being greedy when others in the market are fearful that drives Warren Buffett’s investing strategy. To illustrate the validity of this method, if you’d bought and held 100 shares in International Business Machines (IBM) after their 50% drop in the early 1960s, you’d be a retired millionaire right now!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…However, buying a stock for capital gains is risky and any enterprising investor needs to research carefully. On this basis, it’s worth digging deeper into the Lamprell share price to find out why some investors think now is the time to be greedy with Lamprell.Lamprell shares surge on contract awardOn 20 May, Sharjah National Oil Corporation (SNOC) awarded Lamprell a new contract, which caused the Lamprell share price to rise. However, investors have expected this for some time, as part of a $6.2bn bid pipeline. Indeed, the contract should reassure investors that Lamprell’s management is working towards promises made.However, the timings of pipeline awards remain a challenge for long-term capital intensive industries like oil and gas. In addition, the double whammy of plunging oil prices and the Covid-19 pandemic is impacting Lamprell’s business by delaying project awards further. Costs have increased and productivity has dropped as redundancies and reduced working hours begin to bite.This will not help Lamprell’s liquidity crisis. Declining revenues and net losses three years in a row are resulting in negative cash flows, eating into strategic reserves. Longer-term investments are being cut back to help with short-term cash needs. Consequently, I think Lamprell’s short-term strategy will be about cash conservation for survival. Funding to realise future pipeline activities will come later.Lamprell looks to debt financingLamprell’s management is assuming the company will secure debt financing. However, the large depletion of assets gives the firm fewer assets to loan against. The coronavirus pandemic and the oil price crash means many firms are competing for funding. Lamprell may find securing financing a lot harder. However, with a reputation for quality engineering and good project management means, Lamprell is in a strong position to win future projects. Indeed, the firm is expecting a major contract win within the next 12 months.According to management, the firm’s UAE base will help its prospects for winning bids in the Middle East. The location ensures transport costs and risks are lower for customers when compared with Asian competitors. And a history of business interests there means Lamprell is culturally aligned with client expectations.Currently trading at around 19p, Lamprell shares are cheap when compared with the per-share net tangible asset value of 46p. So, if the business collapses shareholders could gain, assuming Lamprell doesn’t divest any more assets.But for long-term investors, Lamprell is a long way from demonstrating a sustainable business model that can increase earnings over time.

On the picket line

first_img‘Sweeping victory’ for Iowa public unionsPublic unions in Iowa, forced by a new anti-union law to hold recertification elections Oct. 10-24, won an overwhelming 93 percent victory. Of 33,252 eligible voters, 28,448 voted to retain their unions, with only 624 ballots in opposition. Of 468 elections statewide, unions won 436 and lost only 32, announced the Iowa Public Employee Relations Board on Nov. 8.Eric Larew, past president of the Pleasant Valley Education Association, told the Quad City Times that the high margin of victory was “probably” in reaction to undemocratic rules. Instead of requiring a majority of those voting, all those not voting were counted as “no” votes. Calling it a “sweeping victory,” Danny Homan, president of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 61, said it confirmed that even non-union members “value their voice in the workplace.”The law was approved in February by former Gov. Terry Branstad and the Republican-led legislature. It severely limits the number of issues public workers, except most public safety employees, can negotiate and stipulates the new recertification rules in the final months of contracts. Union officials have protested the law, asserting it was rigged against unions, and are challenging it in court. (qctimes, Nov. 9)Victory against outsourcing at UTennWorkers at the University of Tennessee just won a significant victory. The United Campus Workers, an affiliate of the Communications Workers union, defeated a $300 million outsourcing scheme that would have ripped 1,700 custodial, repair and maintenance jobs from the community.The deal was a flop from the start. A student-organized comparison of the current contract and the proposed contract discovered costly overruns in the latter. CWA’s path to victory was uniting labor, community and business allies with students, staff and faculty, and educating lawmakers about the flawed proposal.Though other recent union drives in the South have been defeated, Payday Report notes: The UCW win is “a sharp rebuttal to those who say it’s impossible to win victories in the anti-union South. … [P]ublic sector unions … can continue winning victories by building community alliances and mobilizing their members to put pressure on lawmakers.” (Nov. 1)Unionizing workers at imperialist Santander BankA heroic union drive at Santander Bank, led by the Communications Workers, is gaining steam. CWA is trying to unionize tellers, bankers and call center staffers in the U.S. arm of Spain’s global giant, Banco Santander. This is a vital struggle, not only because of its impact on the workers’ livelihoods, but also because it could shed light on the bank’s dirty deeds in Puerto Rico.Santander’s no ordinary bank. Here in the U.S., Santander Consumer USA has spent years since the Great Recession buying up debts and now controls a third of that market. But the bank faces a series of regulatory actions after failing to comply with national consumer protection laws. (Boston Globe, March 28)In Puerto Rico, former head of Santander PR Carlos Garcia became head of the Puerto Rico Government Development Bank in 2009. There he misappropriated enough funds to send the bank into insolvency! This only exacerbated the island’s massive $74 billion debt. Now Garcia heads PROMESA, the fiscal board overseeing the privatization and pillage of Puerto Rico. (For an expose of Santander and Garcia’s crimes, see WW article, “Santander Bank owes reparations to the Puerto Rican people” by Berta Joubert-Ceci, March 28, tinyurl.com/ycxxonsg/.)With Puerto Rico continuing to suffer from federal mismanagement and racism after the hurricanes, unionizing the workers at Santander USA would be a small step toward justice in the island nation.Kroger workers in Ohio, W. Va., Ky. ratify contractKroger grocery workers in 39 stores in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new contract on Nov. 6. The contract for 4,200 members of Food and Commercial Workers Local 400, which takes effect immediately and runs through Aug. 29, 2020, provides raises while maintaining health care and retirement benefits.“These days, it is extremely rare to ratify a contract without losing a single benefit,” said Local 400 President Mark Federici. “I cannot overstate how much the support of Kroger customers and the rest of the community made a difference in these negotiations.” Allen Nuckels, a clerk from Oak Hill, W.V., added: “I lost count of how many times someone saw us at a rally and stopped to ask me, ‘Are you guys on strike? Because I won’t cross a picket line!’” (dclabor.org, Nov. 7)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

End sanctions — act of war — on Zimbabwe

first_imgOctober 25 was declared “A Day of Action”  by the South African Development Community to end the economic sanctions on Zimbabwe.  SADC is comprised of 16 countries in the Southern African region. These sanctions — an act of war imposed by the U.S. and other Western imperialist countries 20 years ago — have caused great suffering and hardships on the Zimbabwean people and their economy.  The December 12th Movement organized a support action on Oct. 25 with a march and rally starting at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations and ending at the Zimbabwe Mission. Giving a solidarity message at the rally was Stephanie Hedgecoke, an Indigenous member of Workers World Party.  Below are her edited remarks.  U.N. demo, Oct. 25.We stand together on stolen land, the Lenape homeland, in a country built on stolen nations, to say: Stop the illegal, murderous sanctions on Zimbabwe and on the Indigenous peoples of Zimbabwe.Today even the health of our Mother Earth is under threat by the same forces that stole the lands from the Indigenous peoples in Zimbabwe.  Indigenous nations around the world share this history of genocidal assault and capitalist larceny that has built the wealth of the banks. All the riches the imperialists possess — it’s all stolen.But the Indigenous peoples of Zimbabwe took their lands back, and only they have the sole and absolute right to determine any and all issues of development on their own lands — not the banks, not the corporations, not the International Monetary Fund, not any settlers!Workers World Party recognizes the sanctions on Zimbabwe as an illegal war on the people to wreak harm on the people and their lands and erase the right of self-determination. Zimbabwe is owed reparations by the banks and the settlers, who have profited from this past assault and seek to, again, gain control of what is not, and never was, theirs through economic warfare.These forces see our Earth only for what they can ransack and pillage, and then they use our air and water, the atmosphere and oceans, as dumping grounds. We stand in solidarity with the youth of the world to say: This has to STOP.In solidarity with the December 12th Movement, we are with Zimbabwe to demand the sanctions, the economic warfare, be ended.Hands off Zimbabwe! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Authorities suppress “right to know” about Tianjin explosions

first_img News News Receive email alerts Organisation The Chinese Communist Party has issued a series of directives to online media and Internet users since the massive chemical explosions in Tianjin on 12 and 15 August.With the support of the propaganda departments of various provinces, the Cyberspace Administration of China (the government agency in charge of Internet censorship) is trying to control the story by celebrating the heroism of the fire-fighters and highlighting moving rescue tales.But at the same time, it is concealing concerns about the cause of the explosions, the deaths of many fire-fighters and rescue personnel, and the fate of those who are missing.“In a distress situation such as this, it is essential to provide the maximum information, especially to those directly effected by the disaster,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We regret that the initial reactions of the authorities suggest a scenario similar to the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, when they opted for a policy of censorship and repression. By orchestrating the now traditional succession of propaganda and censorship measures, they are displaying a flagrant indifference to the public’s legitimate concerns.”The Cyberspace Administration of China has insisted that coverage of the explosions is limited to use of the dispatches published by Xinhua, the government news agency. Adding personal comments or opinions is strictly forbidden. Live video feeds are also forbidden.The Tianjin Propaganda Department has banned the employees of TV channels, radio stations, newspapers and microblogging platforms, including reporters, presenters and editors, from posting information about the explosions on social networks.In some provinces, online news media outlets have been ordered to withdraw text references and photos of the Tianjin disaster from their homes pages and from their lists of recommended articles.On 13 August, CNN correspondent Will Ripley was harassed and jostled by individuals while reporting live from a hospital that was receiving victims. As a result, he was forced to stop broadcasting. Policemen who were there made no attempt to intervene and even prevented a colleague from coming to his aid.Seth Doane, a reporter for CBS, another US television broadcaster, and his crew were prevented from filming the same day by policemen who put their hands over the lens of his camera. Officials also confiscated the memory card of a Taiwanese reporter for Eastern Multimedia when he went too close to the site of the blast.China is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Five years after the unexplained death of Zahra Kazemi, Reporters Without Borders condemns new inquiry for lack of independence

Five years on, Reporters Without Borders is calling on the Iranian government to ensure a serious, independent investigation. “We are afraid this inquiry will be meaningless and will not lead to the identification of all those involved in the death”, the organisation said. to go further Help by sharing this information News Iranian-Canadian photographer Zahra Kazemi died exactly five years ago tomorrow (10 July) from a cerebral haemorrhage following beatings she received in Evin prison, Tehran. In January 2008, the Supreme Court ordered a retrial because of irregularities that affected the appeal court’s verdict in November 2005.“Five years after the death of Zahra Kazemi and despite the decision to reopen the case, we have received no assurance that the second investigation will be carried out independently and without interference from the public prosecutor, Said Mortazavi”, Reporters Without Borders said. “His involvement in the journalist’s death is recognised although he has never been called to account for it. We are afraid this inquiry will be meaningless and will not lead to the identification of all those involved in the death.”The Tehran province high court began re-examining the case on 17 March 2008. At that first hearing, attended by lawyers for the journalist’s family, Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi and Mohammed Sifzadeh, the court agreed to look into a complaint filed by her son, Stephan Hachimi. He has always called for his mother’s body to be repatriated to Canada for an independent autopsy, but the journalist’s mother was put under pressure to allow a hasty burial in the southern town of Chiraz on 22 July 2003. Requests for Hachimi to be exhumed have so far remained unanswered.The family lawyers have several times condemned the case as a travesty of justice. Their requests for leading members of the judiciary to be summoned have always been refused, denying them access to key witnesses. Said Mortazavi has never given evidence, even though he was originally responsible for Kazemi’s arrest and was there when she was interrogated in Evin prison. Reporters Without Borders supports the lawyers’ request for “a full, free and fair investigation” and “the appointment of a completely independent judge”.Following strong pressure from Canada and an inquiry by the Iranian parliament, the judiciary said intelligence agent Reza Aghdam Ahmadi was responsible for the journalist’s death but he was cleared by the Tehran appeal court in November 2005. Since then the Iranian authorities have made no further arrests.Kazemi, 54, was arrested on 23 June 2003 as she was taking photos of prisoners’ relatives outside Evin jail.

COVID- Our Responsibility Is To Ensure That People Are Provided With The Healthcare They Need: Patna HC Seeks Bihar Govt’s Response On Several Issues

first_imgNews UpdatesCOVID- Our Responsibility Is To Ensure That People Are Provided With The Healthcare They Need: Patna HC Seeks Bihar Govt’s Response On Several Issues Sparsh Upadhyay6 May 2021 8:46 PMShare This – xDealing with a plea concerning COVID management in the state of Bihar, the Patna High Court on Thursday (May 6) observed that no one should lose life only on account of lack of adequate medical care. The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjay S. Karol and Justice S. Kumar heard the submissions made by the Bihar Government, Central Government and other counsels with regard to the steps taken to improve the supply of medical Oxygen as also other infrastructural issues for treatment of patients infected with the Corona Virus within the State of Bihar.At the outset, the Court noted the immeasurable importance of the life of every person and said,”As representatives of institutions and pillars of a democracy, we collectively hold a responsibility to ensure that the people get the help and are provided with the healthcare they need, especially in these times of great crisis.”The Court also acknowledged the “excellent work” carried out by our doctors and other medical staff whom the Court had in previous litigation termed as ‘Guardian Angles’.Further, highlighting the major issues arising for consideration, the Court crystallized the following as lack of infrastructure and preparation for dealing with the Pandemic Covid-19 Testing; Hospitalization; Human resources, i.e. Doctor(s) & Paramedics; Requirement, availability and transportation of Oxygen; Medicines (both life-saving and otherwise general medication); Dissemination of information to the public, increasing public sensitivity and awareness; Performance of Last Rites of those who have fallen victim to this disease; Disposal of waste generated in testing and treatment;The availability and the administration of the vaccine.In relation to the abovesaid issues, the Court directed the Chief Secretary, Government of Bihar, to file his personal affidavit, dealing with each one of the issues and clarified that information given be true, correct, and verified from all sources.Granting three days to file the affidavit, the Court added that any information found to be false shall be taken seriously, including initiation of proceedings for perjury. Oxygen availabilityThe Court was informed that the major problem with respect to the availability of medical Oxygen is its transportation from other states to the State of Bihar as the plants are distributed across the country. The Court noted that the demand is 300 metric tonnes (approx.) and in contrast, the allocated quota was 210 metric tonnes (approx.) by the Central Government and out of this allotted 210 metric tonnes (approx.), 154 metric tonnes (approx.) were currently being brought into the State through a limited number of special transport vehicles available with the State. Further, the Court was informed that more transport vehicles are to be received by the State, precisely 6 (six) from the State of Jharkhand, and 3 (three) from Indian Oil Corporation.The Bihar government also informed the Court that once the state gets additional vehicles, it would be able to transport its entire allotted quota, whereafter a request would be made to the Central Government for additional allocation of Oxygen to the State. The Counsel also emphasized that Oxygen is the first line of treatment on which immediate attention and focus is required and that storage of Oxygen was not an issue, for the State has adequate storage arrangement and its distribution up to the endpoint.Lastly, the Court observed that before it passes any further order on the issue of demand, transportation and distribution of Oxygen, it was appropriate to direct the Chief Secretary, Govt. of Bihar, to file his personal affidavit verifying the correctness of the statements made about the allocation; transportation; distribution etc. The matter has now been listed for further hearing on May 10.Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderTagshealthcare COVID COVID-19 Cases Bihar COVID Management COVID Management OXYGEN Oxygen Supply Bihar Government Patna High Court Chief Justice Sanjay Karol Justice S.
