Market crash or no market crash! Keep calm and carry on investing

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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images. Monday’s stock market crash has given way to widespread panic about the coronavirus and uncertainty surrounding the damage it may cause. Besides this, there’s an escalating oil price war, minuscule interest rates, and unprecedented levels of global debt.  How should markets react? Time will tell, but I don’t think it will be pretty.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…Is another stock market crash coming?If you’ve done your research and have the cash to invest, you may not get a better opportunity to purchase shares in quality companies at bargain prices.Historically, the worst market crashes have not occurred on single days, but on multiple days in relatively quick succession, according to data from Refinitiv.The big stock market crash known as Black Monday occurred on 19 October 1987. On that day, the FTSE 100 fell 10.8%, but it also fell a further 12.2%, 5.7%, and 6.2% on single days during the following week. These were all historically large falls for the FTSE 100, and all four occurred within an eight-day period.A similar pattern appeared in autumn 2008 when the FTSE 100 experienced four notable one-day falls of between 5.7% and 8.8% in a one-month period.Although this may be alarming at first glance, for those investors looking to snap up shares in companies at rock-bottom prices, there could be opportunities ahead.This week we saw a repeat of 1987’s Black Monday when markets around the world crashed in response to a 30% drop in the price of oil and increasing worry about the virus. I don’t think this was a one-off event.To be prepared is to be forearmedMany British shares have been suppressed in recent years in response to Brexit and worry surrounding a global slowdown caused by the US-China trade war. With these new concerns thrown into the mix, some UK shares are becoming insanely cheap. Of course, a few will fall too far to recover, which is why due diligence is so important. I’d avoid oil, airline, or cruise stocks for now, and I think restaurant or entertainment stocks will be out of favour for some time too.Niche growth areasOne stock I like the look of is Porvair (LSE:PRV), a specialist filtration and environmental technology company.

These include tighter environmental regulations, growth in analytical science, the expansion of air travel, the replacement of plastic by aluminium, and the drive for manufacturing process efficiency.The expansion of air travel may no longer be so promising, but I think growth in the other areas may increase. Of course, supply chain issues could have an impact in the near term.Over the last five years, the Porvair share price has risen 119%. Its price-to-earnings ratio is 27, which is too high to call a bargain share. However, you could get value for money if you’re buying in a market crash. Porvair stock also has a small dividend yield of 0.77%.I particularly like that Porvair has a low debt ratio and is specialising in niche areas of growth. I think it is one company that can recover well from this current market turmoil and shine in the better days ahead.last_img read more

Records show thousands of allegations of sexual abuse of migrant children in US custody

first_imgdavelogan/iStock(WASHINGTON) — Federal officials have documented thousands of allegations of sexual abuse and sexual misconduct against migrant children in U.S. custody over the past several years, according to documents presented at a House committee hearing Tuesday.The reports of alleged abuse in Department of Health and Human Services records were made public by Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch during a House Judiciary Committee hearing examining the Trump administration’s family separation policy. The data includes accusations of harassment and inappropriate sexual behavior against unaccompanied minors and children in U.S. custody going back to when HHS started keeping records for the first time in the fall of 2014, during the Obama administration.That year U.S. authorities saw significantly higher numbers of unaccompanied children attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. There are currently 11,500 migrant minors in U.S. custody, mostly older children and teens who crossed the border alone.The stats don’t appear to show a significant increase in accusations under the Trump administration compared to the last years of Obama administration.“Together these documents detail an environment of systemic sexual assaults by staff on unaccompanied children,” Deutch said at the hearing.More than 150 of the allegations involve staff working at facilities run on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services. In several cases the accused staff member was removed from their position, the documents show.This number represents those that were reported to the Justice Department, a much smaller number than total allegation reported to refugee resettlement staff.In some of the other cases the perpetrators were other unaccompanied minors.Axios first reported on the allegations Wednesday afternoon.“The safety of minors is our top concern when administering our unaccompanied alien children program,” HHS spokesperson Caitlin B. Oakley said in a statement. “These are vulnerable children in difficult circumstances, and the [Office of Refugee Resettlement] fully understands its responsibility to ensure that each child is treated with the utmost care.”Accused staff members were removed from their position in dozens of cases, the documents show. The cases reveal multiple instances of inappropriate touching and kissing involving children.In one 2015 incident, a facility staff member approached a child from behind and asked her to “squeeze his erection,” the report noted. The staff member also tried to kiss the young girl on the mouth.The incident was reported to the FBI and the staff member was arrested and charged with sexual abuse, the report explains. The children and staff members involved are not named.A top HHS official said he raised concerns over the Trump administration’s family separation policy in 2017, as ABC News previously reported.“In every conversation that we had about separation we opposed separation,” HHS Public Health Commander Jonathan White said in response to questions from Deutch.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Vanessa Bryant says Kobe wanted to use retirement to ‘make up for lost time’

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailRob Carr/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — To mark Mamba Day, the fourth anniversary of Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game, his widow, Vanessa Bryant, shared footage of his final moments on the court.In her caption, Vanessa Bryant reflected on the “senseless” deaths of her husband and their daughter, 13-year-old Gianna, who were killed in a helicopter crash in January.Noting that the NBA legend, nicknamed “The Black Mamba,” “worked his ass off for 20 years,” she explained that he’d hoped to use his retirement to focus on family.“All he wanted was to spend time with our girls and me to make up for lost time,” she wrote. “He wanted to be there for every single milestone and special moment in our girls’ lives.”Kobe Bryant, 42, and Gianna — known as Gigi — were among the nine victims killed in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26 in Southern California. At the time, they were en route to a basketball game at Bryant’s Mamba Academy.Like her famous father, Gigi loved to play basketball, and, according to Vanessa Bryant, “she worked hard and gave her all 7 days a week just like her daddy.”“He only got to enjoy 3 years and 9 months of retirement. We had 2 more daughters, he won an Oscar, he opened Granity studios, he became a 5x best selling author and coached Gianna’s basketball team in that time,” Vanessa Bryant wrote. “I wish I could back to that morning, every day. I wish they had a normal local game on 1/26. Life truly isn’t fair.”Kobe Bryant is survived by his wife and three daughters: Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 9 months.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Kensal Rise Library to be turned into flats

first_imgThe ‘Save Kensal Rise Library Campaign’ has suffered a further setback, following a recent meeting with All Souls in which it was announced that the College is selling the library to a property developer to be turned into flats.Campaigners who call themselves ‘The Friends of Kensal Rise Library’ held a rally on Saturday outside All Souls in the hope that Fellows would use it as an opportunity “to discuss a more meaningful future for Kensal Rise Library.”Margaret Bailey, a Director of the campaign, said, “We invited the Warden and Bursar to come to speak to us on that occasion. They de- clined, but we have been invited to a further meeting on 20th November 2012. We have asked to meet with the College on other occasions and have been referred to Cluttons their property agents.”They have also written an open letter to the College which expresses that they feel “misled” by the college. The letter, which has been sent to the Warden and all of the Fellows of All Souls individually, describes the college’s move as a “breach of faith.” In the letter Bailey said, “We represent a larger community that sees the Col- lege’s current proposal as nothing short of a breach of faith with this relatively poor area of north-west London, from which it has already profited handsomely.”She continued, “Although the College do- nated the land, the library building from which the College and Mr Gillick now seek to profit was not paid for by the College, but by public subscription and a donation from Andrew Car- negie, the philanthropist.”In a press release, campaigners asserted, “The Friends of Kensal Rise Library were shocked at a recent meeting with the College’s Bursar, Mr Thomas Seaman, to be told that the College was selling the library to a property developer to be turned into flats.“On the 3rd August 2012 Mr Seaman, Bursar of All Souls, claimed that “this building will not be turned into flats. In reality the entirety of the old library is to be converted for residential use, with only a small part of the new building re- maining available for rent by the library.”Campaigner Laura Collingon told Cherwell, “We are very disappointed by the way that All Souls’ have behaved so far. They assured us that the building would not be turned into flats but they are now saying that this will happen.“However, they have said that we have persuaded them that there should be a library on the site. I don’t think this will be possible if we are shut out of our historic library building and forced into a tiny space where we have to pay a market rent to an unsympathetic property de- veloper, which is what is currently suggested by All Souls.”She continued, “This is not a sustainable future for the library. It would be shocking if an educational institution like All Souls persisted in putting profit before learning.”Bailey remains hopeful about the future, telling Cherwell, “We have a meeting with the college on 20th November and we hope the discussion will be productive.”The library, opened in 1900 by Mark Twain, has been a source of tension between All Souls and the community in Kensal Rise. The cam- paign has been supported by numerous literary figures, including Alan Bennett, Philip Pullman, Zadie Smith, Jacqueline Wilson and Maggie Gee, as well as the Royal Society of Literature.last_img read more
