I think this stock market crash could be an amazing opportunity for long-term investors

first_imgI think this stock market crash could be an amazing opportunity for long-term investors Views expressed 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” “I will tell you how to become rich. Close the doors. Be fearful when others are greedy. Be greedy when others are fearful” – Warren BuffettHistory suggests that stock market crashes can be fantastic investment opportunities for long-term investors. In the past, global equity markets have always recovered from short-term setbacks. That means those who were brave enough to invest during periods of uncertainty have always been rewarded over time.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…With stock markets having fallen significantly in recent weeks, I believe another great buying opportunity is emerging for long-term investors. The FTSE 100 index is now down nearly 30% from its 2020 high. It’s currently trading at a level not seen since 2012. Meanwhile, many stocks within the blue-chip index are now trading at bargain valuations and offering huge dividend yields. As such, if you’re willing to invest for the long term, I think there’s a good chance you’ll be rewarded.Coronavirus uncertaintyThe current stock market crash is the result of the economic uncertainty associated with the coronavirus (Covid-19). This terrible illness (which is undoubtedly a tragedy from a human perspective) is creating havoc around the world. Businesses in nearly every industry are affected in some way or another. And company profits and economic growth are likely to be impacted significantly in the short term.Near-term forecasts don’t look good. Just last week, analysts at Deutsche Bank halved their UK growth forecast for 2020 to just 0.5%. That’s a post-Global Financial Crisis low and is due to the outbreak. Meanwhile, a number of economists are saying a global recession is likely. It’s no wonder that share prices have fallen sharply.Economic uncertainty is elevated right now due to the unknown impact of Covid-19. But I do not expect this high level of uncertainty to last forever. Eventually, the world should recover from the coronavirus. And when this happens, growth should pick up and global stock markets should recover as well, as they have in the past. This means that those investing now, while uncertainty is high and panic is in the air, should be rewarded in time.Average in Of course, it’s important to realise that coronavirus uncertainty could persist for a while longer. Perhaps a few more months, or maybe even into next year. This means that stocks could fall further. If things continue to get worse, major stock market indexes such as the FTSE 100 and the S&P 500 could potentially fall another 5%, 10%. They could even drop 20%. Stocks that look cheap now may become even cheaper.So this is my advice if you’re considering investing now. Do what I’m currently doing and drip-feed money into the market over time. That way, you’ll average out your entry points.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. It’s been another hard day on UK share markets. On Thursday, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have kept sliding on continuing fears over Covid-19 and the state of the economic recovery. A downbeat assessment of the US economy from the Federal Reserve hasn’t done much to clear the gloom of recent days either. One share that’s not suffering on Thursday, however, is Mitie Group (LSE: MTO).This UK support services share has actually surged 7% in value today thanks to a positive reception to its latest financials. At 46p per share its shares are now at their most expensive levels since June 2020.5G 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…Full-year guidance risesIn a strong third-quarter update Mitie said that organic revenues rose 6.7% to £573.9m. The business  said that sales rose as “Covid-19 lockdown measures were eased, customers responded positively to [our] ‘Getting back to business’ initiative and revenue from providing critical services supporting the UK’s battle against Covid-19 increased”.For the nine months to December, organic revenues were down 4.3% year on year at £1.55bn, the UK share said. The lion’s share of this reversal was because of the loss of a Ministry of Justice contract and the reduced scope of an NHS Properties contract.Those sales numbers for quarter three came in better than expected. And as a consequence Mitie Group said that it expected operating profit for the full fiscal year (ending March 2021) to come in at between £57m and £61m. This is above the current market consensus of £56m.The support services provider chalked up £770m worth of new contracts in the nine months to December, it said. Mitie also noted that it had swung to an average net cash position of £31.4m in the third quarter. This compares with net debt of £313.6m in the same 2019 period.Mitie expects sales to flattenAt Mitie’s core business services division revenues boomed 14.8% year on year in quarter three, the company said. This unit — which is responsible for half of the UK share’s total organic turnover — enjoyed extra demand for its security and cleaning services.Demand was particular strong among food retail, non-aviation transport, and logistics, Mitie said. The division also benefitted from its work with the Department of Health and Social Care to combat Covid-19, as well as support provided to HM Revenues and Customs at ports in the run-up to the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December.Roaring revenues here more than offset a 0.6% sales fall at Mitie’s Technical Services arm. Meanwhile third-quarter turnover at Specialist Services rose 0.8% year on year.Mitie doesn’t expect a strong performance in the final quarter of the year, however. The UK share predicts that second-half performance will be stronger than that of the first. But it reckons that “the new national lockdown measures currently in place are likely to result in flat growth in the fourth quarter.” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Halanagahu to start against Crusaders

first_imgBarnes will sit out against Crusaders after a hit to the headTHE HSBC Waratahs have made one change to the starting XV for Friday night’s round three clash with the Crusaders at Trafalgar Park, Nelson.Berrick Barnes was taken out of the selection frame with medical staff preferring him to spend a week on the sidelines after suffering a head knock in the Tahs’ 30-6 victory over the Queensland Reds on Saturday. Daniel Halangahu moves into the No.10 jersey which he wore on nine occasions in 2010 including a run of five straight victories which tied the Tahs’ record for most consecutive Super Rugby wins.“The players’ welfare is always our primary concern, and after checking him out after training this morning we think it’s best to keep Berrick out this week,” said head coach Chris Hickey. “This is definitely a situation where we need to err on the side of caution and we’re lucky to have someone of Daniel’s experience to step straight in.”When Halangahu takes the field it will be his 41st Super Rugby cap at flyhalf which equals the NSW record currently held by Manny Edmonds. Afa Pakalani, who scored two tries in the opening trial match of 2011 against the Fiji Warriors, moves onto the bench and will make his Super Rugby debut should he take the field.The only other change to the match day squad sees Pat McCutcheon come onto the bench for the first time in 2011, in place of Chris Alcock. McCutcheon returned to Rugby last week with a solid hit-out for the HSBC Junior Waratahs in the IRB Pacific Rugby Cup and is ready to return to Super Rugby after sustaining a back injury in the off-season.“’Cutch’ had a really big year in 2010; he captained Australian Sevens, made his Super Rugby debut, represented Australian Barbarians, played club Rugby for Sydney Uni, went to the Commonwealth Games and then went on the Spring Tour,” said Hickey. “He went back home to the farm over summer and it all probably caught up with him, but he’s ready to go now and I know he has his sights set on returning to the starting XV where he finished in 2011.”Phil Waugh will take his place in the team after sustaining a biceps injury against the Reds, and in doing so will become the first player to captain NSW 50 times at Super Rugby level.Prop Al Baxter has been selected to make his 118th appearance for NSW which takes him equal with Chris Whitaker on the all-time list. Only Phil Waugh, who makes his 130th appearance on Friday, has more state caps in the 129-year history of NSW Rugby.Former Western Force and Northland lock Pat O’Connor will travel to New Zealand with the team as 23rd man.The only time NSW has played at Trafalgar Park was a 13-4 victory over Nelson in 1894. The HSBC Waratahs fly to Nelson via Auckland tomorrow morning ahead of Friday’s match.CRUSADERS v HSBC WARATAHSFriday 4 March 2011 (Kick-off 7:35pm NZT, 5:35pm AEDT)Trafalgar Park, Nelson.

The 100 Best Players In The World: 60-51

first_imgOur next section of the 100 best players goes from 60 to 51. Take a look at who makes the cut The 100 Best Players In The World: 10-4 The 100 Best Players In The World: 70-61 Expand “Every time he gets the ball something magical happens,” wrote Perry Baker of Jerry Tuwai last year. The Fijian general is one of the stars of the Sevens Series and a man who knows about hard work having grown up in poverty in the rough Suva suburb of Newtown. Be it stepping, sweeping or linking passes, the Olympic gold-medal winner is a must-watch talent. The 100 Best Players In The World: 10-4 The 100 Best Players In The World: 100-91 The 100 Best Players In The World: 1 Alun Wyn Jones Expand We kick off our list of the 100… Our next section of the 100 best players… Expand Our next section of the 100 best players… Expand The 100 Best Players In The World: 2 Beauden Barrett Expand The 100 Best Players In The World: 30-21 Expand The 100 Best Players In The World: 80-71 Expand Our next section of the 100 best players… After becoming the first woman to lift New Zealand’s Kelvin R Tremain Memorial Player of the Year trophy in 2018, Cocksedge said her next goal was to win 50 caps. She should reach that milestone in San Diego in July as vice-captain of the Black Ferns team playing in the Women’s Super Series.That tournament is a major fillip for NZ’s women, who have long struggled for an adequate Test programme. When they do get the chance to perform on the world stage, this nine dictates play.Her pass has been described as “faultless” and she’s one of the world’s best goalkickers, having had many years to practise – her father built goalposts in their Taranaki backyard. Her greatest attribute is her game understanding, with team-mate Krysten Cottrell saying: “She knows the ins and outs of every play.Not just her position but everyone else’s position. She has been in the rugby environment for such a long time, she can just take control of games and whatever she does she does it well.”54 Siya KolisiSpringbok Captain: Kolisi would be a popular winner at the 2019 Rugby World Cup (Getty Images)Age 28 (16 June 1991) Position Back-rowThe Springbok skipper’s rise from impoverished childhood to rugby star is well documented, which piles the pressure on the flanker. His season hasn’t been as consistent as he’d like, not least because of the demands on his time as the face of SA Rugby. Yet despite being pulled in a million directions since his ascent to becoming the first black Boks Test captain, he’s put in big performances for the Stormers and now looks to be coming to the boil at just the right time.Although he is the Boks’ openside, he is not a traditional ‘fetcher’ but rather a powerful ball-carrier and strong defender. The Boks use Duane Vermeulen and Malcolm Marx as their primary jacklers, so it’s left to Kolisi to protect possession by cleaning rucks quickly and linking with the backs.His leadership is now unchallenged and in the past year his calm head saw the Boks overcome two big deficits to beat England twice and also defeat the All Blacks in Wellington.If he lifts the Webb Ellis Cup later this year, there’s unlikely to be a more popular winner for neutrals everywhere.53 Will GeniaRebel General: Genia has bounced back in Melbourne (Getty Images)Age 31 (17.1.88) Position Scrum-halfAfter an eight-year, 114-appearance career with Queensland Reds, the scrum-half went to Stade Français in 2015 for two unsuccessful seasons. However, over the past two years he has bounced back wonderfully at the Rebels. Still a force in attack and still a hugely influential defender; the Wallabies need him now as much as ever.52 Dane ColesDogged: Cales is returning from a series of injuries (Getty Images)Age 32 (10.12.86) Position HookerThe Rugby World Cup-winning All Black has been plagued by bad luck over the past two years, with concussion, Achilles and knee problems dogging the Hurricane. He’s lost his Test spot to Codie Taylor but such is the quality of this ball-playing quasi-centre that he remains an important figure.51 Jerry Tuwai Magical Fijian: Tuwai is must-see TV whenever he plays (Getty Images)Age 30 (23.3.89) Position Sevens Expand The 100 Best Players In The World: 50-41 Our next section of the 100 best players… Expand The 100 Best Rugby Players In The World: 60-5160 Anton Lienert-BrownUnderrated: Anton Lienert-Brown is a lesser known star in Kiwi rugby (Getty Images)Age 24 (15.4.95) Position CentreOne of the most underrated players in New Zealand rugby. Few can switch so seamlessly between 12 and 13, but that is just one element to Lienert-Brown. He is also deceptively quick, strong and produces scrambling try-saving moments. In what had been a struggling Chiefs team, he has often been the shining light – and could yet be a major factor for the All Blacks.59 Henry SladeMidfield Lynchpin: Slade has become huge for the Chiefs and England (Getty Images)Age 26 (19.3.93) Position CentreDuring the fallout of England’s 2015 World Cup failure, we demanded that henceforth Slade should be the first name on the team sheet. A broken leg and dented confidence slowed his progress, but the Exeter centre is now playing with an irresistible swagger.His fizzing passes, flicked offloads and probing grubber kicks make him the yin to Owen Farrell’s yang, an extra set of ears and eyes in wider channels. “He can unlock stuff for England,” says ex-Ireland centre Gordon D’Arcy. “The creativeness he brings balances out the structure and order of Farrell.”Chiefs boss Rob Baxter thought Slade looked like a pipe cleaner the first time he saw him, but the player – a Type 1 diabetic – has become a defensive lynchpin with a deceptive turn of speed. He marked his first Six Nations start with a virtuoso two-try display in Dublin this year. Being installed as first-choice 13 since last year’s summer tour seems to have empowered him and he may go to the 2019 Rugby World Cup with the additional responsibility of being a back-up ten.58 Gareth AnscombeStarting 10: With his performances during the Six Nations Anscombe could have made the 10 shirt his own for Wales (Getty Images)Age 28 (10.5.91) Position Fly-halfWith a Christian name bestowed on him by a Welsh mother who idolised Gareth Edwards, the Kiwi-born pivot has enjoyed a stellar 12 months, inspiring Cardiff Blues to a Challenge Cup trophy in 2018 and playing a significant role in the red of Grand Slammers Wales in 2019. He’s an astute reader of the game, with a turn of pace and ability to play flat to the line.57 Dan BiggarOff the Bench: Biggar was a huge influence off the bench during Wales’ Grand Slam (Getty Images)Age 29 (16.10.89) Position Fly-halfHe spent a decade at the Ospreys, but it’s only by leaving Wales that fans have fully appreciated Biggar’s worth. An influential season at Northampton and a key part in Wales’ 12th Grand Slam have seen Biggar lauded. A model of composure, he’s integral to Warren Gatland’s 2019 Rugby World Cup plans.56 Joe MoodyModern Prop: Moody epitomises what the prop position has become (Getty Images)Age 30 (18.9.88) Position PropStop us if you’ve heard it: a player gets called up for the All Blacks in Rugby World Cup knockouts, plays an important role, goes on to win it. In 2015, that was Moody. Disciplinary lapses aside, the Crusader has become a fixture in the Kiwi scrum when fit, but it is his work all over that stands out. He is, as coach Steve Hansen calls him, “a good, mobile, athletic prop”.55 Kendra CocksedgeIn Control: Cocksedge runs the show whenever she is on the pitch (Getty Images)Age 30 (1.7.88) Position Scrum-half Our next section of the 100 best players…center_img The 100 Best Players In The World: 3 Mako Vunipola Take a look at who has made it… The 100 Best Players In The World: 70-61 Collapse Our next section of the 100 best players… The 100 Best Players In The World: 2 Beauden Barrett The 100 Best Players In The World: 20-11 The 100 Best Players In The World: 20-11 The 100 Best Players In The World: 30-21 The 100 Best Players In The World: 3 Mako Vunipola Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter.

Sustainable work  structure and coating built on 100% recycled materialsSave this picture!© Nico SaiehThe work develops in a 27,000 ft2 land, located in Talagante, Region Metropolitana Chile, immersed within an rural extension, in an area rich in farms and with extensive landscapes with long-distance views toward NE and NW, in a land with no slopes.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehThe assignment consisted in making a single-family house, with usage of recycled material. Available were C and IPE beams and different dimensions of double glazed window.Save this picture!© Nico SaiehConsidering the rural area where the work is carried out, an archetype which lays in a integrated, harmonic and non-invasive fashion was opted.
