Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Christopher Ruane | Thursday, 13th May, 2021 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Markets have been frenetic this week. Many investors feel increasingly jittery about share price movements. Nobody knows how the stock market will perform in future. But I do have a plan for how to react to a stock market crash, whenever it might happen.Here are the key elements of my crash plan.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…Be preparedIf a stock market crash comes, I may want to invest more money. But the window for action can be short. In March last year, for example, many shares crashed but started to recover within days. I was eyeing Howden Joinery, but within a few days of tumbling it was moving rapidly upwards again.So I find it helpful to have a watch list of stocks I find attractive. That way, if the stock market does take a dive, I can immediately know where to focus my attention.For example, Unilever is a company on my watchlist. If it fell as part of bigger rout, I would consider adding more to my portfolio. There is a risk an economic downturn could force consumers to trade down from premium brands, cutting Unilever’s profits. But in the long term, I see strong potential in its diversified portfolio and exposure to developing markets.Stay calmEven a wobble in share prices can be stomach churning for many investors. A stock market crash can cause panic to set in. Panic makes for poor decisions.When the markets are tumultuous, keeping a calm head enables me to react rationally and logically. For example, last year as Exxon plummeted, I thought about cutting my position. With the oil price down, I watched as the shares lost half their value in just a couple of months. But I considered my investment thesis about Exxon and decided that it still stacked up. I stayed calm, and didn’t sell.There are still risks: oil prices could fall again, for example. But staying calm helps me to focus on my investment analysis, and assess such risks.Focus on qualityStock market crashes are inevitable from time to time, just like stock market bubbles. I don’t spend lots of effort trying to time the market. Instead, I try to focus on identifying companies whose ability to generate cash is likely to survive a tumble in its share price.For example, Safestore has a strong brand and a simple business model. It could benefit from rising housing costs if people moving to smaller homes store belongings elsewhere. That said, even with  these characteristics, the share price may be buffeted by a stock market crash. I’d also weigh risks, such as growing competition exerting downward pressure on profit margins.Whatever the broader stock market was doing, I’d consider buying a company like Safestore. If anything, a crash pushing its price down would only makes it more attractive to me.Staying diversifiedA key part of my risk management approach is to limit my exposure to any one share or sector.Sometimes that can seem frustrating. I miss out on additional returns from a share or sector that is hot. But a stock market crash reminds me exactly why I choose to diversify.Holding a range of companies across different industries, I pay less attention to wild swings in any one share price. That helps me sleep more easily.last_img read more

May Day in Havana

first_imgOne million march in Havana.WW photo: Berta Joubert-CeciAt 6 a.m. on May 1, the Havana sky was dark, but the intersection of the tree-lined Paseo boulevard and Avenida 23 was already packed with May Day marchers waiting for their contingents to form, talking, drumming and blowing noisemakers. Children were perched on parents shoulders to get a better view. I too was waiting — a little worried about how the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 would find me among the high-spirited Cuban workers and their families. But of course from its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution leaves no one behind, and I was not an exception.This was a special year for the Cuban people. Two of the Cuban 5 heroes have returned home, although only after serving their full, unjust prison terms in the U.S. Liberating the remaining three — who are still held in the prisons of the imperialist empire — was clearly a high priority for the marchers, with homemade signs and banners calling for their freedom interspersed in all the contingents.Although I am a veteran of the huge, anti-Iraq war demonstrations before the U.S. invasion of that Middle Eastern country, and even earlier ones, the only mass mobilization in my experience remotely on this scope was the huge 2006, no-work, no-school, no-shopping, immigrant rights May Day march in Los Angeles. As 2006 reverberated in cities large and small across the U.S, each of Cuba’s provinces turned out for the massive Cuban 2014 International Workers Day celebration.Although May Day is an annual event in Cuba, as it is beginning to be in many U.S. cities, no dampening of energy or fervor, no routinism was evident. Health care workers, including the students studying medicine in Cuba from around the world, led all of the marches under the slogan, “Unity of workers is the only guarantee of the revolution.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Israel: Palestinian journalist sentenced, five others pending trial

first_img June 9, 2021 Find out more News To justify administrative detention and to keep extending it, the Israeli authorities cite security grounds and systematically claim to have “classified files” proving that these journalists are linked to Hamas. RSF has nonetheless learned that, during interrogation, these journalists are always asked about their journalistic work.“The fact that the interrogation of Palestinian journalists focuses on their work suggests that the Israeli authorities arrest them in connection with their journalism, not on security grounds and the reference to ‘classified files’ has no basis in fact,” RSF’s Middle East desk said. “The Israeli judicial system’s proceedings need to be more transparent and it must stop assuming that Palestinian journalists sympathize with terrorist groups.” RSF_en At least two other detained Palestinian journalists are currently suspected of being in contact with Hamas. One is Mohammed Anwar Mona, who like Khater was arrested in the West Bank in July 2018. The other is Mustafa Al-Kharouf, an East Jerusalem-based photographer who is facing deportation.

The Bench of Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice Shampa Sarkar noted in its order that it is within the domain of the Election Commission of India to ensure a free and fair election in the constituencies, where a notification has been issued by the Election Commission of India. The matter before the Court The pith and substance of the writ petition was essentially sounding apprehension regarding the conduct of free and fair election in the State of West Bengal, where notification has been issued to conduct the election of Bidhan Sabha. Court’s observations At the outset, the Court observed that Free and fair elections are part of the democratic rights of the citizenry as a whole. Further, the Court opined, “Guarantee in terms of the Constitution which governs the elections in the context of the constitutional backdrop in which the legislations are placed necessarily emboldens the Election Commission of India to be in complete control of the election process, thereby meaning that ensuring free and fair elections will be the topmost goal of the Election Commission of India, once it notifies the election.” Noting that it is for the Election Commission of India to ensure free and fair election with lawful authority, the Court said, “It is also the well-accepted proposition including the jurisdiction that the Courts will loathe interference in the matters touching elections, once a notification is issued and until the electoral process is completed and the results are declared.” Lastly, the Court disposed of the writ petition by recording the submissions on behalf of the Election Commission of India, that it would ensure free and fair elections and will do everything needed for such purpose in the State of West Bengal in connection with the election of Bidhan Sabha, which has been notified recently The Election Commission last week announced the election dates for the state of West Bengal, which will go to polls in 8 phases on March 27, April 1, April 6, April 10, April 17, April 22, April 26, and April 29.

Pension protection under transfers

first_img Comments are closed. The Government has given its strongest indication that staff pensions are tobe protected by law for the first time when employees transfer from onebusiness to another. The proposals are part of the Government’s push to convince public sectorstaff that it is safe to move to private sector employers, and are outlined ina long-awaited consultation document on changes to Transfer of UndertakingsProtection of Employment regulations. Currently pensions are not covered under Tupe, but in practice public-sectoremployers have had to ensure private contractors provide staff with similarpensions. John McMullen, national head of employment law at Pinsent Curtis Biddle,said the proposals mean private-sector employees’ pensions will for the firsttime be protected when staff transfer. McMullen, who advises the CBI on Tupe, added, “As a contractor, youwill write the cost of providing a pension scheme into the overall cost. “What it may mean is that the cost imperative of contracting out maynot be as high as before. You cannot do it much more cheaply because the laboursaving is not there.” The consultation document also includes proposals to make it easier foremployers to change terms and conditions, provided there is an economic,technical or organisational reason to do so. But McMullen thinks this proposal is contrary to European case law. Other plans include consideration of whether Tupe should apply when servicecontracts change hands from company to company and greater flexibility overwhen the regulations apply to transfers of insolvent businesses.
