Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images 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. 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. Enter Your Email Address This stock market crash does not alter my belief that regularly investing in quality stocks builds wealth. Sometimes stocks may be performing poorly, but in the long run, UK stocks outperform gilts, corporate bonds and cash.With the stock market crashing, it may be challenging to have faith in a regular investment plan. After all, previously-made investments may have lost money. Prices may fall further, and new investments might immediately start to make losses.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 if investments are curtailed now, because of the crash, then when do they start again? Once the bottom is in place? Buying dips sounds appealing, but timing the market is challenging, and outperforming a regular investment plan is not guaranteed.There will always be bear markets as there will be bull ones. Regularly investing in a bull market means buying at higher and higher prices. At some point, the market will face a correction, and prices will decline. In a bear market, purchases get cheaper and cheaper. At some point, the market will go back up.I really cannot make a case for regularly investing in the good times then abruptly stopping when prices are falling.Crashing outIf regular investing doesn’t appeal at the moment, here is a tip I once heard. Continue to transfer cash to your Stocks and Shares ISA or equivalent, but don’t buy anything. Instead, think of those stocks that you wish you had purchased a long time ago. Those that, until February, really went up a lot.Set an order to buy them at a significant discount to the price they are at now. If the market crashes further, stocks might get bought at previously implausible discounts. This approach may help avoid the temptation to sell stocks and lock in any losses for good, as there is some benefit to further declines.Chasing the marketSome industries and sectors have performed worse than others in this crash. Oil and gas stocks have been decimated as demand for fuel has shrunk. Shares in travel and leisure companies have slumped as travel restrictions, both enforced and voluntary, start to bite. Banks stocks are struggling as central banks slash interest rates, making profits hard to come by.Some stocks have not lost as much as others. Food retailers have held up reasonably well, far better than food wholesalers, and so have utilities. It may be tempting to buy stocks like J Sainsbury because they have not fallen as much as the overall market, but that would be short-term thinking. Food retailers are benefiting for now from having their shelves cleared by panic-buying.Panic-buying will stop eventually, so chasing short-term winners is not something I recommend. Stocks that have long-term potential, beyond any temporary boost to revenues, are where you want to be.If I have to focus on one stock to buy right now, it would be Tristel. This company manufactures disinfectant products for commercial and domestic use. Its share price has fallen just 3% since I talked about it in February, even though the stock market crashed. However, the business has good long-term prospects and will also benefit from the heightened awareness of hygiene once this crisis has abated. The FTSE stock market crash is not changing how I invest Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The Nation Brand Index is the only analytical ranking of the world’s national images and reputations.Dr Petrus de Kock, Brand South Africa’s general manager of research, will present the results and unpack South Africa’s competitiveness in the context of the most recent World Economic Forum Global Competitiveness Index, and the Mo Ibrahim Index on African Governance.The dialogue will include a panel discussion with economist Dr Iraj Abedian and media monitoring expert Tonya Khoury.The details of the dialogue:Date: Wednesday 18 November 2015Time: 07h30 to 09h30Venue: Park Hyatt, RosebankAbout economist Dr Iraj AbedianIraj AbedianIraj Abedian is the founder and chief executive of Pan-African Capital Holdings. He was professor of economics at the University of Cape Town, before entering the business sector in 2000. He has served as a consultant on economic policy issues to public and private sector organisations in South Africa as well as internationally. His involvement in policy development in South Africa includes the transformation of the Development Bank of Southern Africa (1995), the RDP White Paper (1995), Growth, Employment and Redistribution (Gear 1996), Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF 1997/98), the Presidential Review Commission (PRC 1997/98), membership of the President’s Economic Advisory Panel 2006-2009 and Economic Advisor to Minister of Mineral Resources (2010 to 2012).Abedian is a prolific researcher and author of numerous articles and academic books.In 1999, Abedian was based at the International Monetary Fund in Washington DC, working on issues related to fiscal vulnerability assessment. In January 2000 he joined the Standard Bank Group at their head office in Johannesburg as group chief economist. He was appointed director and group economist in April 2000, and was a member of the Standard Bank Group EXCO. In 2003, Association of Black Securities and Investment Professionals awarded him the title of “Top Economist of the Year”. As of March 2014, he is an honorary professor of Economics at Graduate School of Business, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Port Elizabeth.He also serves the following organisations and companies:• Chairman of the Board: Bigen Africa (Pty) Ltd (April 2009 to date)• Member of the Board of Directors of Munich Re of Africa. (2005 to date)• Member of Board of Capital Fund Ltd (May 2011 to date)• Member of the Advisory Board of the Auditor General of the SA Government.(2006 to date)• A Trustee of the Global Legacy Trust (2014)About media monitoring specialist Tonya KhouryTonya KhouryTonya Khoury has over 20 years’ experience in media monitoring and client liaison and is widely regarded as one of the foremost experts in the South African and African media monitoring industry.Khoury is the founder and managing director of ROi Africa, a media monitoring company that uses cutting-edge technology to identify trends across media platforms. Her wealth of knowledge and experience means she is a regular guest speaker on Carte Blanche, Radio 702, SAFM, Chai FM, North West FM and 2 Oceans Vibe.Trained as a lawyer, Khoury started her monitoring career Newsclip until her entrepreneurial flair took the upper hand and she started Jisani Digitrack, the first black empowered media monitoring company in Africa.“I’m an entrepreneur and that is something deeply ingrained in me,” Khoury says. “Passion and attitude is everything – these are attributes you either have or not – and I believe that it cannot be taught, like skills and knowledge. I have experienced that all these aspects are important, but the former two are crucial and have been essential for my career and life as an entrepreneur.”Khoury believes the South African media monitoring industry needs a shake-up, as well as a move away from the advertising value equivalent, or AVE, as a measurement tool. “We have to be faster, sexier, more effective and more interactive,” she says.“Media interaction has to be lightning fast. You have to be quick and, more importantly, consistent. You have to fully understand the media monitoring industry.”Media monitoring is not a “nice to have”, she says, but an essential tool for business, especially in crisis situations. It is impossible for an individual to keep track of a story running out of control, as there are simply too many outlets. This job calls for specialists, in the form of media monitors, as negative brand reputation messages require immediate attention across all spheres.“I am not only an entrepreneur – I am also a South African,” Khoury says. “Africa is my home. I’m privileged to call myself a South African, and I’m hugely proud of what my country has achieved. I’ve been fortunate to travel to parts of the rest of Africa and I want more, I want to take a solution that is much needed into the rest of the continent.”last_img read more

a month agoNorwich midfielder Moritz Leitner: Slow start cost us

first_imgNorwich midfielder Moritz Leitner: Slow start cost usby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveNorwich City midfielder Moritz Leitner admits they were caught out by Burnley for Saturday’s 2-0 defeat.Leitner acknowledged that a slow start was to blame for the defeat.”We knew exactly how Burnley would play. They had one plan which was to kick it high and be prepared for the fight. To be honest, in the first 15 minutes they were better than us and did well, so they deserved the lead.”Teemu had a big chance and I had a shot on target. With a bit more luck, maybe we would have scored and been back in the game. We found some solutions in terms of creating chances, but now we have to analyse the game and keep going.”It was the perfect start for Burnley. For us it was more of a shock to concede two goals very early in the game. That’s always tough but we showed a good reaction and wanted to keep playing and to come back into the game. We made some mistakes, but we tried everything, and we will fight for the next game.”You can take something positive from every game, but the dressing room was disappointed. We will analyse the game, talk about it and find solutions for the next game.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

OSU mens hockey looking for 1st win against defending national champion Providence

Correction 10/21: An earlier version of the story said OSU’s first-ever trip to Providence came in 2003, when in fact it played two games against Brown in 1974. Sophomore forward Christian Lampasso (11) handles the puck during an exhibition match against Brock University on Oct. 3 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won 4-0. Credit: Kaley Rentz / Asst. Sports DirectorAnybody can beat anybody in college hockey.That message, which is echoed annually by coaches around the country, was proven true by Ohio State (0-4) to the college hockey sphere in the first game of last season when it took down the then-No. 3 ranked Providence Friars 5-4 in overtime at the Schottenstein Center.In this season’s matchup, a few things are the same, and a few things are different.The Friars (2-0-1) are once again ranked third in the latest United States College Hockey Online poll and return a lot of key players.But this year’s series takes place in Rhode Island at Schneider Arena, the Buckeyes are a very different looking team and a lot of those aforementioned key Friar players now have shiny rings on their fingers after winning the program’s first national title in April.“They’re a top-five team in the country, but that doesn’t really mean much to us,” senior captain Craig Dalrymple said. “It’s going to be a tough two games up there. We know they’re going to be a pretty gritty team. I’m sure they’re going to be quick. We just have to make sure we’re ready for that.”OSU is off to its worst start since 1974-75 when the Scarlet and Gray finished with a record of 7-22-1.Finding the back of the netOSU’s offense, which has contributed just three goals in the last three games, will need to step up against a talented Friar defense.“We’ve had a lot of chances,” junior captain Nick Schilkey said. “Personally, I’ve had a lot of chances, and it gets frustrating but we have to stick with it. The chances that we have been getting, they’re going to go in. We can’t get too frustrated with that. Going forward, we have to be confident.”Special teams, as always, will be a factor. Three of the five Buckeye goals in OSU’s upset win last season came with the man-advantage. But so far this season, OSU has only scored on one of its 16 power-play attempts. “We’ve got to be able to chip one in on the power play,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said. “We haven’t been able to do that lately. Instead of not quite two goals a game, you’re getting maybe three goals a game. If we could’ve done that in the last few games, all of sudden you’re right there.”Rohlik, now in his third season at the helm of the Buckeyes, has tried a variety of combinations personnel-wise with the extra man. But his search for the proper one persists.“We’re just trying to find the right combinations.” Rohlik said. “We’ll continue to tweak until we find the right recipe.”Matchup nuggetsOSU leads the all-time series against Providence 4-1Friday marks the first time the Buckeyes and Friars face off in Rhode Island. The last time OSU has played in Providence was in the 2003 NCAA tournament, where the Buckeyes fell to Boston College 1-0 in the regional semifinal. Their first trip to Rhode Island’s capital city was in November 1974, when they were swept by Brown in two games.The building process continuesFor the young team, this weekend represents another opportunity to face off with a top-20 opponent, as well as another opportunity to build and get better.“I think we’re making some strides,” Rohlik said. “Nobody wants to be 0-4 at this point. We knew it was going to be a tough schedule. In our minds, we can go out and beat anyone. We’ve just got to stay with that confidence.”Puck drop between the Buckeyes and the Friars is set for 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. read more

Google Issues Some Pretty Darn Hilarious Glass Dos and Donts

first_img 4 min read Even Google says you shouldn’t be a glasshole. Just because you wear an insanely amazing $1,500 computer on your face doesn’t give you license to be “creepy or rude.” The tech behemoth, which apparently has a witty, sensitive side, also advises against donning Google Glass while riding a bull or cage fighting. Gee, we can’t imagine why not.Yes, Google wants users to go boldly, but ever so carefully and considerately into the pioneering world of Glass. And in case you brave Explorers can’t make heads or tails of what’s kosher and what’s not while rocking Glass, Google also wants to give you a hand. The company today issued a helpful Google Glass do’s and don’t guide and it’s equal parts practical and entertaining. Related: Virgin Atlantic Is Using Google Glass to Greet Customers “Since the [Google Glass Explorer] program got started, our Explorers have gotten a lot of attention when they wear Glass out and about,” the guide reads. “Reactions range from the curious — ‘Wow!” Are those the ‘Google glasses? How do they work?’ — to the suspect — ‘Goodness gracious do those things see into my soul?!’”Who knows? They just might peer deep into your soul. But maybe not if the person peering from behind them follows Google’s official Glass-iquette pointers. Here are some of our favorites from the cheeky do’s and don’ts list:   Don’t “glass-out.” Yeah, don’t be that guy who wears glass like a second skin and zones out basically 24/7. Like Google says, “If you find yourself staring off into the prism for long periods of time you’re probably looking pretty weird to the people around you.” Oh, and don’t tuck into a tome like War and Peace from behind Glass. True, “things like that are better done on bigger screens.”Related: The NYPD Is Testing Google Glass for Patrol Purposes Don’t “be creepy or rude (aka, a ‘Glasshole’).” You know, creeping sketchily around places with Glass, like the movies, banks, casinos, and, yup, even (cringe) locker rooms and dressing rooms. Google sums it up perfectly: “In places where cell phone cameras aren’t allowed, the same rules will apply to Glass.” Capiche? Okay, good. Don’t “rock glass while doing high-impact sports.” See? We weren’t kidding at the beginning of this article. Google really thinks that “water skiing, bull riding or cage fighting with Glass are probably not good ideas.” We’re pretty sure Glass is also a no-go for volcano surfing, too. Yes, that’s a thing now.Do “take advantage of the Glass voice commands.” In other words, don’t be afraid to boss your Glass around, like you would Siri. Start by saying the magic words “ok glass,” then literally tell that pair what to do, like so: “Take a picture.” “Record a video.” “Get directions to.” “Send message to.” and “Make a call to.” Last we checked, “Make a pastrami sandwich.” isn’t a real Google Glass command… yet.Google points out that nifty voice commands “free your hands up to do other things like golfing, cooking, or juggling flaming torches while balancing on a beach ball.” But wait, didn’t they warn that Glass and extreme sports don’t mix?Do “ask for permission.” Would you snap a person’s picture with your smartphone or DSLR without asking them for permission? No? Then it’s probably poor form to stare someone down with your Glass and take pics and video of them without getting their buy-in first.We’re not sure how many people will actually follow this somewhat unrealistic tip, which feels a bit like an awkward acknowledgement from Google regarding the shame spiral of privacy pitfalls haunting Glass. After all, it’s impossible to know what Glass wearers are really up to from behind their snazzy tech specs (that is, unless you’re the NSA).Remember, eyeborgs, like the friendly — and surprisingly pretty funny — folks at Google caution, “Standing alone in the corner of a room staring at people while recording them through Glass is not going to win you any friends.” Neither is wearing them in the shower and snapping a selfie https://plus.google.com/+Scobleizer/posts/TcaqNeYJWXo.
