Stock market rally: should I buy FTSE 100 shares now?

first_img Andy Ross | Wednesday, 10th June, 2020 Andy Ross owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended InterContinental Hotels Group and Tesco. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The stock market rally poses a tricky dilemma for investors. Should I buy shares as the market recovers or wait for another downturn?This question is particularly vexing if you are a short-term investor. There’s greater pressure to buy shares very low and you need to time your buys much more accurately. For long-term investors (like all of us at The Motley Fool), the issue is less important. With a longer timeframe to work with, the odds that the market will go up and make your holdings profitable increase massively.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…Of course, it’s always a more enjoyable, and profitable, journey if you can buy shares at a lower price. But a long-term investor can afford to take a bit less risk and wait for greater certainty. This also helps reduce risk of mis-timing the market. The stock market rallyMany commentators have been surprised by the stock market rally. Perhaps that’s not surprising given the lockdown in the UK, Europe and in some other parts of the world, the loss of jobs in the US and more generally, the expected economic effects of Covid-19.March was the low point or the point of maximum fear when share prices were really sharply down. The FTSE 100 is still well down on where it started the year, but the rise since March has been spectacular. This could continue or it could be a sucker’s rally, the latter being a rise before another fall. Given that no one can predict the future I’d urge sensible caution.Should I buy FTSE 100 shares?It is possible though to buy shares and be cautious. By keeping cash in a Stocks and Shares ISA and in your current account, you can hedge against nay future market fall while benefiting from the current market rally.The least risky way to buy shares in the current uncertain market is, in my opinion, to buy FTSE 100 shares. Although ‘elephants don’t gallop’, they’re also less likely to go bust. That said, I’d see airlines and hospitality shares as risky, but generally speaking, there are many good shares on the FTSE 100 that can combine income and growth potential.A number of FTSE 100 shares like Tesco are defensive. Tragic though the outbreak has been, some are even benefiting commercially from Covid-19 in a way that, for example, EasyJet or Intercontinental Hotels aren’t. So far the market rally has been remarkable. It’s not too late though to buy FTSE 100 shares. Although I’d cautiously do so, especially as a long-term investor. I’d look for companies that are still paying a dividend and have a much lower P/E than at the start of the year. This will show they’re now much better value.Even if there’s another downturn and this market turns out to be the calm before another storm, many FTSE 100 defensive shares ought to retain much of their value. More pertinently, in the coming years, share prices in good, profitable compnaies should be far higher than they are now.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

SGA and Faculty Senate work to make an honor code

first_imgMegan Guter is a senior journalism major and FTDM minor from New Orleans, Louisiana. Megan is an aspiring fashion icon and pop culture enthusiast. She loves reality television, boybands, and New Orleans to an extreme level. She is also a co-host at TCU’s one and only celebrity entertainment podcast, Celebrity Dish. Geaux Frogs! Previous articleSorority raises money for Ronald McDonald HouseNext articleCommentary: Life unplugged, A five day digital detox Megan Guter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook TCU’s Honor Code would address claims made in the mission statement and academic misconduct policy.Photo credit: Rachel Tiede ReddIt printTCU focuses on the consequences of violating academic misconduct, but the Faculty Senate wants students to live by a moral code that goes beyond the classroom.For the past seven years, Faculty Senate and the Student Government Association have been discussing a draft Honor Code. Honor Codes, which are in place at institutions such as Trinity College in San Antonio, Rice University and Baylor, are meant to hold students to an ethical standard of behavior in and out of the classroom.According to the draft the Honor Code its mission is to “decrease academic misconduct and create a culture that regards academic misconduct as unacceptable,” and to “fulfill the TCU mission statement on ethical leadership.”The Faculty Senate has been working with SGA this semester to make improvements to the original document created in 2010. Since then, there have been massive changes in society and technology, such as social media, that are not addressed in the current draft.“At this point, the 2010 document, which was approved by SGA and the Faculty Senate but never adopted, is a template,” said Faculty Senate Chair Jesus Castro-Balbi. “We will keep an open mind to see what the students and dean envision so that we can collaborate towards a model that works.”Is an honor code needed?Discussion around an honor code has been heated with opposition predating the latest draft. In a 2008 article published in the Daily Skiff, students were not interested in the idea of adopting an honor code.At the time, students said cheating was not a problem on campus. One student said an honor code was nice in theory, but moral responsibilities fall on individual students, not the student government.But the Faculty Senate has persisted.“We have, across campus, a very strong desire to develop a code that will enable us to have conditions that promote honorable conduct in all aspects of our academic endeavors,” said Dr. Jesus Castro-Balbi, chair of the Faculty Senate.SGA president, John Paul-Watson wrote in an email that an honor code should help perpetuate a culture of student accountability and, in turn, raise TCU’s academic profile.An honor code along with a consistent and centralized process that deals with academic misconduct, ensures equal treatment for students who violate the Honor Code and protects those who do not, Watson wrote in an email.Castro-Balbi said In addition to addressing honesty in the classroom the proposed code calls upon TCU students, “to fulfill the TCU mission statement on ethical leadership.”He said the goal is to foster ethical conduct. “It really goes beyond not cheating in class,” he said.Penalties for code violations would mirror those from the academic misconduct policy.Personal responsibility But like those in 2008, some students are still skeptical of the need and purpose of a code.“I don’t think it’s [cheating] that big of a deal, at least in the engineering department,” said DJ Dimas, a junior engineering major. “For homework, they encourage us to work together. For test and other self-assessments I don’t see any cheating at all.”First-year student Libby Glenn also questioned whether cheating was occurring enough to warrant a code.“I haven’t personally witnessed any cheating,” said Glenn. “And I don’t really hear about people cheating much.”Others are accepting of an academic honor code.“I thought we already had one [an honor code],” said sophomore, Hannah Shipley. “So, I’m good with it.”Junior Secondary Physical Science Education major, Colton Clanton, added: “We’re a school built on strong moral values and that’s exactly what we need.”But they don’t agree with The Faculty Senate’s plan because students could face censure for outside activity like social media posts that don’t align with the values of the university.“I think that’s giving TCU way too much power,” said Shipley.Glenn argued that students should be free to post what they want on social media. “No one should control what someone posts on social media, it’s their right.”Sophomore Bailey Ogalla agreed. “Inside the classroom, yes. Outside of the classroom, no. That’s my business, unless it is violating the safety of others.”For now, Castro-Balbi said there is no end date in sight for the implementation of an honor code. The discussion between students, SGA and faculty senate is on-going.

European project to assess Limerick-Shannon freight hub

first_imgA research project to find out how the Limerick-Shannon Gateway can be developed as a sustainable hub for freight transport has been launched by the Mid-West Regional Authority (MWRA).The project, which runs until December 2014, aims to improve freight logistics in North West Europe, as well as reducing the emphasis on road haulage to more sustainable modes of rail, short-sea shipping and river transportation.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Twitter Dublin-based consultants Downey Hynes Partnership (DHP) have been appointed to assist in the implementation of the ‘West and East Freight Flows – Weastflows’ project and over the next eight weeks, they will survey project partners in Scotland, England, Netherlands, Germany and France to determine how other European regions have successfully developed sustainable freight transport systems. The MWRA believes the Mid West’s location on the western periphery of Europe could result in the Region becoming a strategic freight logistics hub with direct connections to some of the world’s global logistics hubs.“The MWRA is participating in this project in order to learn best practice in the integration of spatial planning and transport planning, specifically for freight transport as a crucial part of the Mid-West’s exporting supply chains,” commented Cllr. Gerard Darcy, Cathaoirleach of the MWRA.Cllr. Darcy continued: “We are focussed on how the Limerick-Shannon Gateway can be developed as a Sustainable Gateway for freight transport, in terms of both infrastructure and the optimal use of that infrastructure. The project brings together experts from all sectors of the freight industry to work towards connecting and improving sustainable supply chains for the movement of freight. The MWRA is promoting the Limerick-Shannon Gateway, which as the most western Gateway in the project has a key location for freight movements.”MWRA Director Liam Conneally said that the Mid-West Region is strategically located and an important logistics hub in Ireland with the Shannon Estuary and Shannon International Airport.“The Limerick-Shannon Gateway is at the heart of the region and is an important contributor to the economic development of the region. Through our participation in the Weastflows project, the MWRA will work with the Irish Exporters Association and other partners to establish the Limerick-Shannon Gateway as a Sustainable Gateway and improve links with the Seine Gateway, the Liverpool-Manchester Gateway and the London-Thames Gateway, among others. It is anticipated that the results of the project will feed into the regional planning processes.“The Mid West Region is becoming increasingly important in Ireland’s drive out of economic recession through export growth. Firms in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, healthcare products and agribusiness all have enormous potential to grow their activities in the region. A crucial factor in this endeavour is the development of world-class Freight Transport and Logistics services supporting these firms across the whole spectrum of Road, Rail, Sea and Air transport. The developing co-operation with the Weastflows partners enables us to bring other experience to Irish issues while also addressing problems in Europe that make the Irish Export Supply Chain sub-optimal,” Mr. Conneally said.Howard Knott, Transport and Logistics Director at the Irish Exporters Association (IEA), and the Association’s representative on the Weastflows Steering Group, commented: “The Mid and South West Regions are becoming increasingly important in Ireland’s drive out of economic recession through export growth. Firms in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, healthcare products and agribusiness all have enormous potential to grow their activities in the region.

Over 3.57 million people are out of work in Japan, and the labour ministercalled it “an emergency”. Chikara Sakaguchi blamed the effects of 11 September and the country’s madcow disease outbreak. Cabinet ministers vowed to step up employment measures,including a fiscal 2001 supplementary budget to protect the economy againstworsening conditions. Economists are predicting tough times ahead with Japanese banks trying todispose of large amounts of bad loans. It could spark further corporatebankruptcies and restructuring and take a toll on employment figures. Full-time workers were particularly affected by job losses in September,with male unemployment rising 0.3 percentage points to 5.4 per cent, while therate for women climbed 0.4 percentage points to 5.2 per cent – both recordfigures. www.japantimes.co.jp France jobless count still rising The number of people out of work in France rose in September for the fifthsuccessive month, pushing the total to 9.1 per cent of the workforce. The rise is in line with economists’ projections and highlights thechallenge faced by the government in tackling unemployment ahead of 2002’sparliamentary and presidential elections. Jobs are a sensitive political issue in France and the Government’s mainelectoral platform in 1997 was a promise to cut unemployment sharply. UntilMay, there had been a steady decline over four years. Economists claimed the increase was due to job cuts and a drop in therecruitment of under 25-year-olds. www.ft.com Comments are closed. newsOn 1 May 2002 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
