Would Warren Buffett buy stocks in a market crash?

first_img World-famous investor Warren Buffett has accumulated a fortune worth over $70bn throughout his seven decades of stock market dealings. At 89 years-old, Buffett is still chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, his main investment vehicle. Who better to look to for advice on getting started in buying stocks and shares?With the world battling the coronavirus pandemic, global financial markets are not having a good time. Prices are volatile and fortunes are being lost, but for cautious and prudent investors I believe money can still be made.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…Value investing strategyOver the years, Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy has made many millionaires out of ordinary investors. Long ago, he divulged his tenets for investing. These are the main points he considers when looking to buy shares in a company.One of these is choosing a business that he understands. So, if you’re following suit, do you understand the business you want to buy shares in? Does it have a competitive edge that you understand and respect? If the answer is yes, then this is a great place to start. If not, then you probably don’t want to be buying shares in a company you don’t understand.Follow Warren Buffett’s leadOne of Warren Buffett’s famous quotes is: “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”This rings true for me at times like these because when a stock price is fluctuating rapidly it’s nigh on impossible to time your purchase at the lowest price point. If you’re confident in the company you’re buying shares in, then the price you pay should be almost irrelevant. Accepting that your stock purchase could lose value in the short term but will ultimately gain over the long term isn’t easy. I’d say it’s one of the most difficult thought processes that long-term investors need to get to grips with.Market crash opportunities!In his February shareholder letter, Buffett said he expects Berkshire’s portfolio of US-listed stocks to deliver “major gains”, albeit irregularly.Buffett encourages investors to think long term, focusing on Berkshire’s operating results and the intrinsic value of its stock holdings.The pandemic poses a challenge for even the most esteemed investor. However, Buffett has decades of experience of investing and outperforming in down markets. He advocates that over the long term, Berkshires performs “in a very, very safe manner”.He has a framed copy of the New York Times from the 1929 stock market crash, hung in his Berkshire Hathaway office. It also serves to remind us that anything can happen, and careful consideration over your investments is vital.I’d be very surprised if Buffett wasn’t buying stocks during this market crash. He knows how to spot value in top quality companies, and I’d bet that’s exactly what he’s doing. 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.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. With the outlook for the UK economy improving, I’ve been looking for UK shares to buy for my portfolio today. I think there are plenty of companies out there at this point, which offer me attractive risk/reward profiles and a way to invest in the recovery. UK shares to buyThe first company on my list is mining giant Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO). Thanks to the rising demand for steel around the world, the price of iron ore has jumped in recent months. This has translated into huge profits at Rio, the world’s largest producer. 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…Rio’s size also gives it a considerable cost advantage. It can produce a tonne of iron ore for below $15. Only BHP can do it for less. With its low production costs and iron ore prices surging, Rio recently announced a record dividend to investors. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee this can continue. Commodity prices can and do fall as fast as they rise. Just because Rio is earning record amounts today doesn’t mean it will continue to do so. The business also faces environmental challenges, which could increase costs in the years ahead. As the world rebuilds from the pandemic, I think it’s highly likely (although not guaranteed) iron ore costs will stay elevated as the demand for steel remains high. That’s why I’d buy Rio for my portfolio today. Construction growthAnother construction sector investment I believe is one of the best UK shares to buy today is Morgan Sindall (LSE: MGNS). The government has outlined plans to spend tens of billions of pounds on infrastructure projects over the next few years. It will need partners to help deliver these projects.Morgan’s management believes the company is “well positioned to benefit from attractive UK investment trends.” It already has a healthy order book of business. At the end of its 2020 financial year, the firm’s order backlog stood at £8.3bn, up 9% year-on-year. Despite these opportunities, the group will face challenges as well. Construction is a low margin business and, as the investors of Carillion found out, a company’s fortunes can change overnight in this sector if creditors start to withdraw their support. So, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today, but I’d also keep a close eye on its financial performance. Housing marketFinally, I think one of the best UK shares to buy today is homebuilder Redrow (LSE: RDW). Government support for the housing market has helped prop up property prices over the past 12 months. It doesn’t look as if this support is going to be withdrawn anytime soon. I think that’s incredibly positive for the likes of Redrow and its peers, all of which have shown a preference for rewarding shareholders with large dividends. That said, the housing market can be incredibly unpredictable. It’s propped up by debt and is, as a result, extremely sensitive to interest rates. A sudden increase in interest rates over the next few years may send property prices lower, which could spark a more significant slump in home prices. This would have a knock-on effect on housebuilders. Looking past these risks, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today, considering its long-term potential.  Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 4th March, 2021 | More on: MGNS RDW RIO 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.

Support for Irish NGOs to access EU funding

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Howard Lake | 9 February 2017 | News Support for Irish NGOs to access EU funding  95 total views,  3 views today Advertisement Charity umbrella group The Wheel has announced that it will deliver the Access Europe project which assists Irish organisations to source EU funding.Access Europe is a joint initiative of thirteen grantees of the Atlantic Philanthropies: the Immigrant Council of Ireland, Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC), Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL), Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT), Barnardos, Foroige, Age and Opportunity, Early Years – the organisation for young children, Law Centre Northern Ireland, Committee on the Administration of Justice, Lifestart Foundation, National Energy Action (NEA), and Age Sector Platform. This initiative started in 2013 to build the capacity of Irish organisations to access EU funding. It was felt that civil society organisations could strongly benefit from further engagement in EU programmes.The Access Europe project aims to increase:the levels of EU funding available to Irish organisations.the profile and impact of the work of organisations as a result of increased collaborations with national and EU policy makers and organisations from other Member States.the capacity of Irish organisations to access and manage EU and other sources of funding.the opportunities for shared learning across organisations accessing EU funding.The project has two phases. The first phase comprised a research project to assess the potential for grantees of the Atlantic Philanthropies to access EU funds. It resulted in the production of the report: “Building the Capacity to Access EU Funds – 2014 and beyond”.The Access Europe project is now in its second phase, which consists in the setting-up of a support service to grantees of the Atlantic Philanthropies to monitor the development of European Union programmes and related funds, to identify funding opportunities and to assist applicants to submit applications. The Wheel will lead the project until 2018.center_img Tagged with: Atlantic Philanthropies European Union Funding Ireland  96 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The “perfect” freshman

first_imgRec Center fighting stigma of women and weight lifting printWhen Margaret Yung was 17 years old, she took her collapsed sister off the bathroom floor to the hospital, where she was treated for malnutrition. Yung’s younger sister had deprived her body until it was too weak to function properly.Watching her sister develop and recover from anorexia nervosa sparked a thought that would soon become something very real.“Watching my little sister morph from something so happy and beautiful kind of affected me in a negative way,” Yung said. “She obviously saw something that she didn’t like, should I be looking at myself?”Yung said that, even though she saw her sister’s struggle firsthand, she began heading down that same road. Yung said that all of these problems were heightened during her freshman year at TCU, when her parents were no longer there to monitor her eating.“I was ashamed of what I looked like,” Yung said. “I’m in a sorority and all the girls are so amazing and so beautiful. I compared myself to so many other people, and that just kind of wrecked me.”Yung began making excuses for why she was not eating her meals. She said she was able to get away with it for a while because she was always in athletic clothes and her body type was usually on the smaller side.Yung said she originally hoped to walk onto the swim team at TCU but suffered an injury her senior year of high school that kept her from pursuing athletics in college.“It really messed with my head because my identity was so wrapped around swim,” Yung said. “I thought I’d always be fit and it just got to a point where I was like, ‘I’m not a student athlete anymore, what do I do?’”Yung began frequenting the gym more and dropped ten pounds her first semester. She said she remembers being so exhausted that every time she sat down in a car she would “fall asleep like a little kid.”Yung’s mother talked to her about her behavior over fall break. Yung said her mother compared a picture of her at her high school graduation to a recent picture of her taken in college.This helped Yung realize that something needed to change. She said she is grateful for all the people in her life that cut her off before she did anything drastic.“I’m so lucky I had so many people in my life shake me awake and to just look at me and say, ‘You are not doing this the right way’,” Yung said.Licensed master social worker Ali Hankins said college can make or break those who already have eating disorders. Hankins recovered from anorexia nervosa herself and now specializes in counseling adolescent and young adults.“I think the way your brain’s developed at that time, you’re really comparative, so it can be really difficult,” Hankins said. “But I think if you have a supportive group of friends and a noncomparative environment, it can be an asset.”TCU Campus dietitian Lindsey Mathes said 75 to 80 percent of the students she sees struggling with eating disorders faced similar problems in high school. She said most of them had reached a normalized state, but the immense change college brings can often act as a trigger and resurface these problems.Mathes said if you know someone you feel may have a problem or that could potentially be a danger to themselves, call the Counseling and Mental Health Center. Students may report others anonymously if they would not like to get involved.Mathes also said all students are welcome to come into her office. She is more than happy to help anyone who wants to discuss food, dieting, healthy alternatives and more.“If you feel just not great about yourself, go and talk to somebody. It doesn’t have to get that far before you should seek help,” Mathes said. Twitter ReddIt Sophia is a senior broadcast journalism and communication studies double major.

Complaints from patients double at University Hospital Limerick

first_img TAGShealthLimerick City and CountyNewspolitics University Hospital LimerickCOMPLAINTS from patients about their experience at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) have more than doubled from 281 in 2015 to 600 last year.And, according to Limerick Sinn Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan, the big rise in patient complaints is very concerning and shows much more needs to be done to address the myriad of problems at the hospital.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Sinn Fein TD Maurice Quinlivan.Pic. Emma Jervis/ Press 22“Figures I received from the HSE show a massive 113 per cent rise in the number of complaints about University Hospital Limerick over the past number of years,” he told the Limerick Post.“Unfortunately this comes as no surprise, given the desperate overcrowding crisis that has plagued the hospital in recent years.“UHL is the most congested hospital in the country, and despite the best efforts and excellent work of staff, nurses and doctors, patients simply aren’t getting the quality of care expected due to the overcrowding crisis at the hospital.”Deputy Quinlivan said he has heard from patients and their families “that the hospital is at breaking point, and I have met with nurses and their union representatives who described the huge stress staff are under at the hospital, and how difficult it is for sick patients to be treated there.“The lack of response from the Minister for Health to the myriad of problems in UHL is shameful.”The Sinn Féin deputy added that more than 2,200 compliments have also been lodged with the HSE about UHL over the past few years, “no doubt reflecting the widespread admiration Limerick people have for the nurses, doctors and staff working in UHL in very difficult circumstances.“It’s incredibly important to recognise the trojan work done by staff at the hospital,” he added.Responding to the increase in the number of complaints, a UL Hospitals Group spokesman said that having appropriate patient feedback and intelligence systems was an essential component of quality assurance.“At UHL, we foster a culture of openness and transparency and we encourage and welcome all feedback. Only by having the fullest possible picture of patient complaints can we take the appropriate action.“In November 2016, we strengthened our complaints system by introducing a new way of reporting complaints at point of contact so that all verbal complaints, no matter how serious in nature, are now captured.   Prior to this, mainly written complaints were being recorded.“The increase in the number of complaints since late 2016 is in part due to the introduction of this system which captures all feedback. We embrace this increase in complaints as an opportunity to improve our services to both patients and their families.”The statement continued that the number of complaints recorded can also be put in the context of overall activity at UHL.“For example in 2017, there were 405 complaints recorded at UHL. In this year, there were approximately 150,000 outpatient attendances, approximately 68,000 Emergency Department attendances, approximately 30,000 inpatient discharges and approximately 37,000 day-case patients.” Advertisement Limerick Post Show | Careers & Health Sciences Event for TY Students Facebook Limerick on Covid watch list WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!
