A FTSE 100 stock I’d buy if the market crashes

first_img 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.

McCombie Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. If the market is crashing, I like stocks that do not march to its beat.A stock’s beta tells investors how sensitive that stock’s price is to changes in the overall market. A stock with a beta of 1.6 is expected to rise by 1.6% if the market moves up by 1%. Or fall 1.6% if the market falls by 1%.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$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…According to Yahoo Finance, Smith & Nephew (LSE: SN) has a beta very close to zero in relation to the FTSE 100, based on five years of monthly returns. Having a beta of zero does not mean there is zero investment risk. It means that historically, Smith’s share price has been driven by the ups and downs in its business. The ups and downs of the FTSE 100 have not had as much impact on Smith’s share price.If Smith’s business is solid, then it might be just the right kind of stock to hold in the event of a market downturn.Good healthSmith & Nephew designs, manufactures, and sells orthopaedic devices and wound care products. More people, who live longer and have better access to healthcare, means more medical procedures. More procedures mean more use of Smith’s products – so long as those products remain effective.Revenue growth will likely continue to be steady but unspectacular. A growth profile like this fits with a company that is exposed to long-term demographic trends and reasonably stable healthcare spending.In balanceThe balance sheet at Smith looks strong. Over the last five reported full years, Smith’s current ratio has averaged 1.99. This means Smith can meet its current (less than one year) liabilities with its current assets with ample room to spare.For a longer-term measure of balance sheet health, the five-year average gearing ratio of 36.5% is very encouraging. This means that for every 1$ of equity, Smith has borrowed 37 cents.Well coveredSmith has paid dividends on its ordinary shares every year since 1937. Investors will likely want this tradition to continue.Smith reports its accounts and announces its dividends in US currency. Rather than making the conversion, I’ll just provide the numbers given in the financial report. Smith earned 80 cents per share over the last 12 months, enough to cover its dividend of 36 cents per share 2.22 times over. This degree of coverage is good. Cash flow per share has been 3.22 times greater than dividends per share on average over the last five reported full years. Again this degree of coverage is good.The trailing-12-month dividend yield of 1.53% is low in comparison to others. However, there is good evidence of high quality and sustainable dividends at Smith. Be aware that because Smith declares its dividend in dollars and cents but pays in pounds and pence, the exchange rate between the two will determine the actual dividend received by UK investors.PrognosisOverall, Smith looks like an excellent candidate to help cushion a portfolio if the stock market does crash. Its stock price has not shown a high correlation with the overall market.Its business model and dividends look sustainable. It would make sense in a portfolio looking for income and some price appreciation over the long term, and not just as a guard against panic in the markets.

The client’s desire was “to live while feeling nature without being bothered by looks from the neighbors”. To make the best use of the lot, the planning was designed to enclose the lot with the trench extended beyond the building, and to provide an interior courtyard as the center.

The position of each opening is carefully designed in consideration of “what to take in and what to conceal”. Specifically the position and form of the opening of the living/dining room with kitchen on the second floor is most effective in concert with the interior. In this house, the most important theme is “how to close/open” in the open environment.Project gallerySee allShow less10th National Design Awards Winners AnnouncedArticlesSofia’s New City Center to be designed by Dominique PerraultArticles Share Projects Save this picture!+ 14 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

The Diana Award is a living legacy to the Princess which is presented to young people, aged 12 to 18, who inspire the lives of others. It recognises the selfless and positive contributions made by tens of thousands of young people to their schools, communities, families or friends. The Diana Award was set up in 1999 by the Government’s Memorial Committee. As a newly launched independent charity, the Trustees of the Award are looking to establish partnerships and support to financially secure the Award’s future. This will enable this ever-growing network of young people to become the leaders of tomorrow. The Rt Hon Gordon Brown MP, says: 10 years on from Princess Diana’s tragic death, her memory continues to inspire young people today to devote their time and energy – as Diana did – to helping others in their communities. 16,000 young people have received Diana Awards since they were introduced in 1999, and as the Diana Award becomes an independent charity this year, I know thousands more young people will be inspired to follow in their footsteps. In this way, the example set by Princess Diana of selfless work for the good of society can live on from generation to generation. Advertisement Key speakers at the launch include Baroness Kay Andrews OBE and TV Presenter Diane Louise Jordan. The event will be led by young Award Holders who will tell their compelling stories of bravery, compassion and altruism. These include and full biographies attached:· Zuhra Bahman (23yrs). Zuhra taught English to children underground when her city in Afghanistan was captured by the Taliban. Here in the UK, she has actively represented the Afghan community at national and international events. She has set up a charity called the Afghan Youth Fund. · Liam Fairhurst (11yrs). Liam finished treatment for cancer a year ago. He has raised £70,000 to support other children that suffer with cancer. It is all dedicated to the memory of his friend Jack who died in August ’06.· Amy Hewitt (17yrs). Amy is an anti-bullying campaigner. She experienced bullying for a number of years but now actively campaigns to tackle bullying in schools and communities.With over 16,000 Diana Award Holders in the UK, they include young people who have been brave or overcome immense personal difficulties, as well as young carers, fundraisers, campaigners, mentors and others. The Diana Anti-Bullying Award, which is in addition to the main award, is presented to young people that have tackled bullying.Many young adults, who are Award Holders, continue to use their inspirational and entrepreneurial skills for the benefit of others. Award Holders have changed lives and the impact on them after gaining the Award is immense. One Award Holder said: This Award is going to be with me all my life. Maggie Turner, Director of the Diana Award, says: The Diana Award is a sparkling testament to the late Princess’s achievements, celebrating the best in our young people and giving recognition to those who act as a force for good for their schools, families and communities. We have flourished so much over the last seven years that we made the decision to become an independent charity so we can reach out to more young people that deserve this unique award.To make a nomination for the Diana Award or the Diana Anti-Bullying Award visit or tel. 0845 3372987 Howard Lake | 18 February 2007 | News Diana Award launched as independent charity About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

On to Fall Fieldwork in West Central Indiana

Were there record corn and soybean yields like USDA projected on Rippy Farms?“It was not. It was a little bit shy of a record. It was right there. Both corn and beans were good, just a little bit shy of where we were in ’18. Overall, pretty solid corn and soybean yields.”Rippy is taking advantage of the dry, warm weather to take care of some fall fieldwork.“Right now, we’re doing strip-till getting the corn ground prepared for next season. That should be done in the next couple of days. We should have that wrapped up and then we’ll move on to fall burndown spraying. Once we get that done, we should be in pretty good shape.”Rippy says they haven’t been able to get all of their fall burndown done the past couple of years due to weather conditions, but he’ll be happy to get that completed this year.So, harvest went well with near record corn and soybean yields, fall fieldwork is getting done, and to top it off, corn and soybean prices have been surprisingly good.“It’s been a welcome surprise, that’s for sure. It’s been nice to see things rally into the fall. Hopefully, things will at least be able to hold these levels. I think this gives everybody an opportunity now to hopefully price at some profitable levels.”Rippy is now looking forward to wrapping up and enjoying some time with the family.“The kids have missed me, my wife has missed me, so I think it’ll be nice to relax, get caught up on some office work, and get to enjoy the family a little bit.”Rippy farms in Montgomery, Tippecanoe, and Fountain counties in West Central Indiana.

Golf tournament raises money for St. Mary’s school

first_img Twitter Previous articleTHE IDLE AMERICAN: A most unusual dayNext articleGEEK: Touchpad sensitivity an ongoing problem admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Benjamin Villarreal looked over the raucous clubhouse patio Saturday afternoon, over all the smiles and laughs, past the posted scores and a long list of registered names, and over the raffle tickets being handed out from the prize table, and he could see, in the shade from the sun, that it’s already becoming a pretty good summer for the school.The 17th annual Tee It Up Fore Kids golf tournament benefiting St. Mary’s Central Catholic School in Odessa was another success this weekend, as Villarreal, the school principal, could see from the patio at Ratliff Ranch Golf Links.More than 30 teams of four filled registration and participated in what Villarreal called one of the school’s biggest fundraisers every year, if not the single biggest, to send the school into summer planning with a boon to its general fund.“This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” he said, aside the revelry on the patio moments after the round. “It brings in quite a bit of revenue, and all the guys come out. It’s a big deal for the kids, and for them, the parents.”The school raised additional money at the event with a raffle and a silent auction after the round of golf.“Our school being as discounted as we are, we rely on fundraisers. … It helps us not have to increase tuition as much as we would need to,” Villarreal said.And the event continues to grow, he said, both through participation and with sponsors and donors.“It seems like every year the prizes are getting a little bit better,” Raymond Marrero nodded to the raffle table with a smile. Marrero played in the tournament for the sixth straight year on Saturday. His son went through St. Mary’s for nine years.“That’s what we love about St. Mary’s, it’s just one big family,” Marrero said. “It brings everybody together.”Villarreal is finishing up his first school year as principal this week, after a few years as assistant principal, and though he’s seen the tournament grow in his time with the school, former principal Mary Jaramillo has seen it grow for even longer. She first got to the school in 2003 and was the principal for seven years.“It’s become one of our main fundraisers,” she said.On top of that, the camaraderie that crosses those 18 holes every year is something else that’s big for the school and its community, she said.“To see the excitement of the people and the excitement of the players is nice,” Jaramillo said.“It’s great that we have the money coming in too, but people look forward to it.” Pinterest Pinterest By admin – May 20, 2018 Home Local News Golf tournament raises money for St. Mary’s school ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ Facebook 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School center_img Felipe Herediea putts on the 18th green during St. Mary’s Catholic School’s 17th annual Tee It Up Fore Kids Saturday morning at Ratliff Ranch Golf Links.

Update on CARES Act and Liquidity

A graduate of Harding University, he has covered numerous topics across the real estate and default servicing industries. Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. Sign up for DS News Daily in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News On Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin and Jerome H. Powell, Chairman, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System testified before the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs on the current state of the CARES Act.”We have worked closely with the Small Business Administration on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to ensure the processing of more than 4.2 million loans for over $530 billion to keep tens of millions of hardworking Americans on the payroll,” Mnuchin said in his testimony. “We are proud that nearly 400 Community Development Financial Institutions and Minority Depository Institutions, and many more small and non-bank lenders, are participating in this program.”In Powell’s testimony, he discussed how the Federal Open Market Committee undertook purchases of Treasury securities and agency mortgage-backed securities in the amounts needed to support smooth market functioning.”While the primary purpose of these open market operations is to preserve smooth market functioning and effective policy transmission, the purchases will also foster more accommodative financial conditions,” Powell said.As Powell notes, unlike in 2008, banks entered the current crisis with sufficient liquidity. As a result, they have been well positioned to cushion the financial shocks we are seeing. In contrast to the 2008 crisis when banks pulled back from lending and amplified the economic shock, in this instance they have greatly expanded loans to customers.Additionally, according to Powell, the Federal Reserve is preparing to launch the Main Street Lending Program, which is designed to provide loans to small and medium-sized businesses that were in good financial standing before the pandemic.”Importantly, with these and other facilities that the Federal Reserve has not employed before, public input has been crucial in their development,” said Powell. “For example, in response to comments received, we lowered the minimum loan size and raised the maximum loan size across the three lending facilities within the program; in addition, we expanded the size of firms allowed to borrow under the program to companies with up to 15,000 employees. These changes should help the program meet the needs of a wider range of employers that may need bridge financing to support their operations and economic recovery. ” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Investment Update: Low-Tier Rents Outpacing High-Tier Homes Next: Fannie Mae Announces Additional Flexibilities May 19, 2020 1,006 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Related Articles Subscribecenter_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago CARES act Mnuchin Powell Senate Banking 2020-05-19 Seth Welborn Home / Daily Dose / Update on CARES Act and Liquidity About Author: Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: CARES act Mnuchin Powell Senate Banking The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more
