The crashing FTSE 100 is full of bargain stocks! Here’s what Warren Buffett would do

first_img Today’s a great time to go shopping for shares, as the crashing FTSE 100 now contains loads of bargain stocks. However, simply rushing around buying the cheapest shares you see is a recipe for disaster. Some companies may struggle even after the coronavirus lockdown eases. Instead, listen to Warren Buffett, the world’s greatest investor.After the stock market crash, you can find bargain stocks all over the FTSE 100, but they need to have recovery potential as well. Before using the bear market to load up your Stocks and Shares ISA, heed Buffett’s wise words.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…The first thing you need at times like these is the courage to go shopping for crashing FTSE 100 bargain stocks in the first place. Buffett famously suggested that, at times like these, you need to be “greedy when others are fearful,” but he didn’t stop there.Crashing FTSE 100 opportunityHe also said that: “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” Any investment you make today is like planting a tree. We live in uncertain times, as nobody knows how long the lockdown will last (even the government), or how rapidly the economy will recover. Trees take time to grow. You should aim to hold any bargain stocks you buy today for the long-term.Buffett also said: “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” This is vital to remember right now. Crashing FTSE 100 shares may look so cheap, but they don’t all offer value.I would be wary of buying cruise operator Carnival, for example, even though many investors hopped on board during last week’s rally. I think it could be a long time before people are willing to book cruises in large numbers. There are better bargain stocks out there.Choose your bargain stocks carefullyI am also wary of airlines, such as easyJet and British Airways owner International Airlines Consolidated Group, as the return to flying will be slow, and hampered by many restrictions. Cheap isn’t everything. Value is.Another Buffett saying applies now: “It’s only when the tide goes out that you discover who’s been swimming naked.”The tide has definitely gone out now, leaving the crashing FTSE 100 on the rocks. Covid-19 gives poorly run companies an easy scapegoat. I’d be wary of buying any company that’s cheap because it was struggling before the crisis struck, as it will find the recovery hard too.Buffett would knowCompanies such as NMC Health, Pearson, and Centrica were the three worst performers on the FTSE 100 last year. The stock market crash hasn’t suddenly made them unmissable bargains.Buffett would want to take advantage of a stock market crash like this one to buy bargain stocks. He wouldn’t buy just anything, though.

NHS childcare on target

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. The Government’s £70m childcare strategy is on track to ensure all NHS staffhave access to a childcare co-ordinator who can help them meet family needs. Delegates at the NHS childcare conference, Beyond Workplace Nurseries, weretold last week that 124 co-ordinators have already been appointed at NHStrusts, while another 50 are currently being recruited. The Department of Health’s commitment to provide 150 on-site nurseries with7,500 subsidised childcare places by 2004 is also within reach – there are now120 schemes open or in the pipeline providing 5,200 places. NHS HR director Andrew Foster predicted the childcare strategy would helpthe health service meet its recruitment targets. He said: “The challenge of balancing childcare responsibilities andemployment is often a source of considerable stress for parents. “We are committed to improving the working lives of NHS staff byproviding high quality, value-for-money childcare. We need to ensure thismessage is reaching potential recruits and returners.” For the first time, NHS staff can easily find details of their localchildcare co-ordinator by going straight to a central database, launched at theconference. Speaking to delegates, health minister John Hutton said: “The NHSchildcare strategy represents a key element in making the NHS a model employeras well as enabling it to deliver its priorities over the next threeyears.” www.doh.gov.uk/iwl Comments are closed.

Small Gardens

first_imgUnfortunately, many would-be gardeners forgo planting a vegetable garden because they don’t think they have enough space. This need not be the case, since many vegetable varieties can be planted in small spaces. Alternative growing practices can also reduce the amount of space needed to grow a backyard (or back porch) garden.Tomatoes are a garden favorite but many people assume they require a lot of garden growing space. Actually, many types of tomatoes don’t need much space to grow. Often, size differences in tomato plants are distinguished by the terms determinate and indeterminate.Determinate tomatoes grow to a certain size, and then produce flowers and fruit. There can be varying degrees of determinate tomatoes. Those that are strongly determinate are often called patio tomatoes because they can be grown in a pot. This makes growing tomatoes possible for apartment dwellers who just have a patio or terrace. Some of these varieties grow just 1 to 2 feet tall.Indeterminate tomatoes, on the other hand, keep growing and setting flowers and fruit throughout the growing season.Watermelon and cantaloupe usually require a lot of space to grow. The vining nature of these plants quickly covers some real estate. Fortunately, both fruits have dwarf varieties that require less room to grow. Often these dwarf varieties are called bush or short-internode types. The vines of these varieties don’t elongate like typical watermelon or cantaloupe varieties so they take up much less garden space. With proper care and water, they will produce fruit the same size as standard or long-internode types.Beans and southern peas are also available in bush varieties that require less space and offer excellent yields.An alternative method for growing vining crops like cantaloupe and cucumber is to grow vertically. Vining crops can be trained on a trellis or wire frame. Use a cloth or net sling to support the fruit. Cantaloupe, particularly, will slip from the vine when ripe and may be damaged if not supported while growing on a trellis.Many vegetables grow in small spaces without gardeners having to search for special varieties or use special cultural practices. These include lettuce, mustard, onions, radish and spinach. Vegetables that are harvested as leaves, such as collards and kale, can be grown in small spaces, too. Just harvest immature leaves, before the plants become very large.Start planning your garden spot now to be sure you allow plants the room they need to grow while providing the biggest harvest of homegrown vegetables for your family.

Silver Winning D’Tigers Back to Lagos from Tunis Â

first_imgAfter their silver medal exploit at the just concluded 2017 AfroBasket tournament, D’Tigers were scheduled to return Lagos early this morning aboard a Royal Air Maroc flight with the exception of team captain, Ike Diogu, who headed for United States of America due to family commitments.The delegation led by President of the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), Musa Kida,was expected to arrive the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos at about 3:30am.The 2015 champions who were just in camp for about two weeks before their title defence surpassed their pre-tournament expectations by getting to the finals, defeating continental powerhouses like Senegal and Cameroon in the quarter final and semi final.Although, Tunisia claimed the FIBA AfroBasket title after beating Nigeria 77-65 in Saturday’s Final in Tunis, D’Tigers and their fans still have something to cheer with Diogu awarded the Most Valuable Player Award.The D’Tigers captain who led by example emerged the tournament’s leading scorer with an average of 22 points per game while Nigerian guard Ikenna Iroegbu who made his AfroBasket debut for Nigeria was also named in the tournament’s Best 5.The 34-year old power forward who recorded a tournament-high also averaged 8.7 rebounds per game at the 16-team FIBA Africa’s most important competition.Despite the loss against the host, it will be a tournament to remember for Diogu who was the tournament’s highest scorer with a total of 132 points as he powered the D’Tigers to the finals after emerging as the team’s highest points scorer in four of their six games. Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
