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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Imagine it: you’ve come into a fairly substantial sum of money. You’ve cleared your debts, and figure you’d now like to invest the money in stocks.What’s the best way to invest the money going forward? All at once, or by putting a percentage amount of the lump sum into your chosen stocks each month?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…In this example, our imaginary investor has an investment vehicle, like a Stocks and Shares ISA, and a portfolio of stocks they want to own. We are going to examine if it is better to put all of the money in at once, or to feed it in over time.Pound cost averagingThis phrase might be familiar. Pound cost averaging is the process of buying a stock at regular intervals, say monthly. For example, an investor with a lump sum of £100,000 may choose to invest £8,333 a month over a year.The benefit of this approach is that as the stock price fluctuates up and down, the investor is likely to buy at both the high and low points, meaning that the average price paid will even out over time. The idea is that the investor will not lose out if the market suddenly drops after investing the lump sum.Pound cost averaging sounds good then. But there are a few drawbacks.By holding back the money and staggering the investments, your asset allocation will have changed. For example, a £100,000 portfolio may go from having 80% of your investment in stocks and 20% in bonds, to 40% stocks, 10% bonds, and 50% cash, while you hold back money to invest over the coming months.As we know, over the longer-term stocks tend to return more money to investors than cash. Therefore, the possibility of half your portfolio not significantly increasing in value is probably not an ideal situation.This brings me to the other negative with pound cost averaging – that markets tend to go up more than they go down.Let’s examine the alternative.Invest it all at onceTo the prudent investor, investing a lump sum at once will sound scary. In a bear market, there will be concerns that stock prices will only fall further. In a strong bull market, people will be predicting the end-times. Either outcome would be less than ideal.There are some, like JL Collins, the author of The Simple Path to Wealth, who think it is best to invest a lump sum at once. He argues that by pound cost averaging (or dollar cost averaging, to him) you are betting that the market will go down. History, however, has shown that over longer periods, the stock market tends to go up.Your investment will possibly earn dividends too, which could be worth more than the interest that most cash savings accounts are offering at the moment.Each investor’s situation is different, and risk tolerance is down to personal preference. But when it comes to investing a lump sum, I think I’d take the view that it is probably better to invest it all at once. Image source: Getty Images
Australia’s flanker David Pocock (L), Australia’s head coach Michael Cheika (C) and Australia’s hooker and captain Stephen Moore (R) give a press conference in Bath Will Genia and Bernard Foley line up at half-backs, with Michael Hooper and David Pocock getting the nod in the back row LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS When Australia play on Wednesday against Fiji, only minnows Namibia and Romania will not yet have kicked off their World Cup.Having had a chance to see pool rivals England and Wales in action, Michael Cheika has selected what would appear to be his strongest side to face Fiji.While most of the team is as expected, his choices cleared up a few positions, notably that the back row combination of Michael Hooper and David Pocock should get the nod against England and Wales.For the hosts that is particularly concerning, with their breakdown work having been under par in their warm-up games and their opening win over the Fijians.England have managed to nullify Hooper by blasting him off the ball in recent clashes between the teams, but with Pocock playing as well, Australia look a formidable prospect at the breakdown.More interesting was what Australia would do in the half-backs, and Cheika has gone for a new-look combination with Will Genia and Bernard Foley.Reds teammates Genia and Quade Cooper and Waratahs duo Nick Phipps and Foley have generally been paired together this year, but for the Fiji clash, Cheika has mixed things up.Genia impressed against the USA in the Wallabies’ final warm-up game, and at his best is one of the world’s top scrum-halves. He’s not shown that form for a couple of years though, and it’s not clear whether he will ever rediscover it.Foley has endured an up-and-down year, and while he has generally outshone Cooper, he’s not been as impressive as he was last season.Still, on form he looks to be a better bet than the Reds playmaker, and if Cheika continues to see Matt Toomua as only an inside centre, Foley should keep that job.Elsewhere the question over who will start in the second row for the big games alongside Rob Simmons appears to have been answered, with Kane Douglas getting the nod.The former Leinster lock earned a spot in the team despite only returning to Australian rugby over the summer.Finally Scott Sio’s improved scrummaging sees him preferred to James Slipper at loosehead, while on the wing the reliable Rob Horne is in over the more explosive Henry Speight and Joe Tomane. Australia: Folau; Ashley-Cooper, Kuridrani, Giteau, Horne; Foley, Genia; Sio, Moore (capt), Kepu, Douglas, Simmons, Fardy, Hooper, Pocock. Replacements: Polota-Nau, Slipper, Holmes, Skelton, Mumm, Phipps, Toomua, Beale.

Only one of the nine churches in the three-county region between Buffalo and Rochester has an average Sunday attendance of more than 40. Five have an average attendance of 15 or below. But in this collection of rural communities and former canal towns, an experiment is underway that could suggest a path forward for small churches and rural communities across The Episcopal Church.The Genesee Deanery initiative was first conceived by the Rev. Colleen O’Connor, who, until the end of last year, had been the part-time priest at both St. Mark’s Church in LeRoy and St. Paul’s Church in Stafford. It imagines a deanery team of two or three priests and a deacon who would rotate among six of the eight parishes in the deanery that do not have full-time clergy. The plan would make it possible for all six to celebrate a Eucharist or communion service at least three times each month, in addition to having a steady pastoral presence, and a priest available for emergencies.“My goal is that these parishes would also participate in congregational development projects, and that the lay leadership can think about how to reach out to the community, about who they are and who God is calling them to be,” O’Connor said. “If survival is not an issue, how do we spread the gospel to our communities? We are not going for megachurches, but to have a vibrant healthy church active in our communities.”The participating parishes are Christ Church, Albion; St. Luke’s, Attica; St. Paul’s, Holley; St. Mark’s, LeRoy; Holy Apostles, Perry and St. Paul’s, Stafford.Of the three remaining churches, St. James, Batavia, by far the largest church in the deanery, has a full-time rector. It has committed to collaborating with other parishes, but is still considering how fully it will participate.“I am excited about this plan because it takes into account the culture of the region and the character and charisms of each of the individual congregations,” said Bishop Sean Rowe. “It allows people to collaborate in a way that really brings a balance to lay and clergy leadership.”The deanery has been losing population for more than two decades and suffering economic setbacks as well. A Fisher-Price plant in Medina closed in 1995, a Champion sportswear plant in Perry closed in 1998 and the massive Diaz Chemical plant in Holley closed in 2003, leaving behind a Superfund site. The region today is sparsely populated, but close-knit.“It’s a lot of small towns spread apart,” said the Rev. Bonnie Morris, rector at St. James. “There is a lot of countryside. People live in their communities a long time. They know each other from way back, and they have very definite ties to their community.”Rowe says preserving those ties is at the core of the deanery initiative. “We are saying that just because these churches are a small presence, that doesn’t mean they aren’t critical to their communities,” he said. “You have to believe it matters that The Episcopal Church is present in these tiny communities, because otherwise you follow the way of thinking that says, ‘Why don’t you close all of these places?’ That’s what you do if you want the church to be an urban-suburban phenomenon, and that’s the way the church is heading. I am saying these places are critical, but this is not just about keeping them open, it’s about making them present in their communities.”In 2017, the deanery received a grant from Diocese of Western New York to explore the benefits and challenges of sharing clergy. On the first Sunday of each month, O’Connor, then the priest at St. Mark’s and St. Paul’s, would lead worship at St. Luke’s, Attica and attend its vestry meeting. St. Luke’s would pay the deanery for a supply priest, and the deanery would contract with a supply priest to lead worship at St. Mark’s and St. Paul’s.On the third Sunday of the month, Morris would lead worship at St. Luke’s before returning to her own parish. St. Luke’s would again pay the deanery for a supply priest, and the deanery would compensate Morris.“If St. Mark’s and St. Paul’s (Stafford) weren’t willing to go along, it wouldn’t have worked,” O’Connor said, joking that after listening to her preach for 15 years, “they were really excited to hear someone else for a change!”The feedback from participating parishes was positive, and after the Dioceses of Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania began their partnership, O’Connor brought the proposal to Rowe seeking further support.“The reality out here is that even if we put all of our resources together, they wouldn’t be able to afford enough bodies to make that work,” she says.Rowe, an advocate of collaboration among dioceses as well as among congregations, was impressed by the plan and its architect. “She really has a missionary heart,” he said of O’Connor, who supplements her income by helping seniors choose Medicare insurance plans. “The church doesn’t value this kind of work enough.”The initiative moved forward on June 25 when Western New York’s Diocesan Council approved a three-year $20,000 transition ministry grant, creating a full-time position, for O’Connor as deanery priest.Although several details remain to be worked out, including the nature of St. James’ involvement, the benefits of collaboration in the deanery are already manifesting themselves. “What we get out of it is a feeling of Episcopal community that goes beyond our parish,” Morris said. “We are the minority in the Christian community, especially in this area, and this is giving us the chance to share some initiatives, like gathering more people for a Bible study or a ministry effort.”Earlier this year two members of St. Luke’s participated in the confirmation class at St. James and were confirmed during Rowe’s visitation to Batavia. Two members of Christ Church, Albion were received into the Episcopal Church at St. James during that same visit.Jim Isaac, who was president of the Western New York Standing Committee when that diocese and the Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania signed their partnership agreement, is part of the committee developing the initiative. A member of St. Mark’s, LeRoy, he said the deanery initiative is emblematic of Rowe’s approach to fostering vitality through reorganization.“His attitude is, ‘Okay, we got this to work once when we brought two dioceses with a lot of talented people together. What’s next?’ This deanery project kind of fits into his focus. The parishes put in some money, the dioceses put in a little.“Okay, let’s make this work.” Submit a Press Release Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Knoxville, TN Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Bath, NC Posted Jun 26, 2020 The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Albany, NY Submit a Job Listing Rector Belleville, IL An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Submit an Event Listing Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH

The 19-story building consists of a 16-story tower supported by a 3-story plinth.

In the report’s Call to Action, Zoe Amar, founder of Zoe Amar Digital highlights the need for more support. Charities, she says, need help to develop digital strategies, while funders need to offer support for tech, software and skills development as charities adapt to the Covid-19 crisis, and make a concerted effort to help charities with digital.Charity leaders too need to focus on developing their digital vision, with more support needed to help them with this, and trustees need to make digital a priority to enable them to make informed decisions as their charities adopt digital further during the crisis.The full report can be accessed from the Skills Platform site. The pandemic has been the biggest cause of digital disruption this year, as charities have embraced digital more fully to continue their work. More support however is needed to overcome the key barriers to progress of lack of funding and skills.

Almost half (47%) are also collaborating or sharing learnings with others around digital, and 28% are developing virtual fundraising events. Little progress in othersHowever, in other areas there has been little progress, and 21% have cancelled services because they don’t have the skills or tech to deliver them, while 15% have cancelled services because their users lack the tech or skills to make use of them online.Overall, 1 in 5 charities rate their skills as poor across a range of areas of digital, including user needs, data, analytics, cybersecurity, digital service delivery and digital fundraising.Digital fundraising one of weakest skillsDigital fundraising is one of the weakest skills for charities, with 45% saying that they are poor at this, and 78% saying they are fair to poor – a significant rise from 59% last year.In terms of digital communications, social media is the highest rated skill with 32% saying they are excellent at it – up from 17% last year. “Whilst 10% of charities told us that digital is integral to their organisational strategy and embedded across their work, which hasn’t grown since 2019, 39% told us that their organisational strategy includes digital (or they have a digital strategy) and it is a priority for them. This is a positive sign.” Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Tagged with: Digital Research / statistics This year’s Charity Digital Skills Report, from Skills Platform, Zoe Amar Digital, and Catalyst, heard from 429 charity professionals between March and May about how they are using digital and what this means for trends around skills, governance, leadership and strategy across the sector.Just over half (51%) of the charities surveyed still don’t have a strategy for digital – similar to 2019’s figure of 52%.

Last year, 62% rated themselves as good to fair. 79% also say that they have fair to poor skills in SEO and ads. This has risen again from 58% last year. 82% also rate themselves as fair to poor at making the most of their website and analytics.In addition, there is also a skills gap around user needs, with 91% rating themselves as fair to poor in understanding how their audience uses digital.Challenges & barriersOver a third (37%) say their biggest challenge to increasing their use of digital is a lack of income to invest, while for 34% it is because their audiences are not online.Internally, the top barriers to getting the most from digital are funding, for 50%, lack of skills and competency among staff (48%), lack of confidence with digital ((47%), and other challenges seen as a higher priority (39%). Culture however is less of an issue than last year, falling from 45% to 38%, suggesting that charities see it as less of a challenge. Melanie May | 15 July 2020 | News
