Buffett indicator suggests a stock market crash is coming! This is what I’d do now

first_img Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. Buffett indicator suggests a stock market crash is coming! This is what I’d do now 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Image source: The Motley Fool Source: Longtermtrends.netIf you look at the graph, you’ll notice that the indicator is much higher even than it was during the 2000 dotcom bubble. Investors obsessed with Internet commercialisation kept buying loss-making and overvalued companies. The bubble eventually burst.But before that happened, Buffett, often referred to as the ‘Oracle of Omaha‘, warned his shareholders that a stock market crash was coming.   Here’s a quote from Buffett’s letter to his shareholders published back in 2000.‘They know that overstaying the festivities — that is, continuing to speculate in companies that have gigantic valuations relative to the cash they are likely to generate in the future — will eventually bring on pumpkins and mice. But they nevertheless hate to miss a single minute of what is one helluva party. Therefore, the giddy participants all plan to leave just seconds before midnight. There’s a problem, though: They are dancing in a room in which the clocks have no hands.’This quote is highly relevant for today’s stock market frenzy, I think. The US market seems to be really overbought right now. The interesting fact is that 60% of the S&P 500 companies are down since the Covid-19 lockdown. But 40% of them, the so-called hi-tech corporations, have rallied to new highs. They currently trade at extremely high multipliers.You might be wondering what it all has to do with UK investors. Well, when ‘the US sneezes, the whole world catches a cold’. It was the case with the Footsie back in the 2000s after the dotcom bubble burst. That situation might repeat itself.  Here’s how I’d prepare for the next stock market crashI wouldn’t panic though. Instead, I’d follow Buffett and avoid spending all my cash at once. I’d also revise my portfolio holdings. Ideally, I’d get rid of the companies with poor balance sheets and low credit ratings. What’s more, I’d invest in companies that tend to flourish even during downturns.They include, in my opinion, gold and silver miners. My colleague Matthew wrote a great article about firms specialising in extracting the yellow metal. Although Buffett has never favoured gold as a investment, he recently bought Barrick Gold‘s shares. The company is the largest miner in the world and pays dividends. In my view, UK investors also have many attractive alternatives to park their cash. Apart from gold miners, I’d also think of undervalued companies producing or selling necessities. The most obvious sectors are the pharmaceutical industry and supermarket chains. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The ‘Buffett indicator’ signals a stock market crash is coming soon. Here’s how I would prepare for the situation.What is the ‘Buffett indicator’?Famous investor Warren Buffett’s favourite indicator US market valuation indicator divides the Wilshire 5000 Index by the US GDP. In other words, it compares the stock market to the country’s economic output. The economy – US and global – is under almost unprecedented pressure right now. At the same time, the US stock market has recovered. 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…Wilshire 5000 to GDP Ratio Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now!

Ecuestre House is located in Costa Esmeralda, 13 km north of the city of Pinamar and 4 hours away from the city of Buenos Aires. Its name makes reference to the stable and the two polo courses it is near to and, this area’s simple architecture has—maybe unconsciously—guided the concept of its design.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe trapezoid-shaped terrain softly slopes upwards toward its middle, where the house stands on a thin podium. No interventions were made to its natural topography and, aiming at a continued connection with the forest it shares on the back with neighboring lots, most of the preexisting pine trees and acacias were kept.Save this picture!AxonometricThe clients, a couple with kids, commissioned a single storey 150 m2 house. It was requested that it should have 3 bedrooms, of which the master suite needed to be completely independent, equipped with a private bathroom and a yoga room. They also asked for the house to be built with as little cost as possible and in a short time.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenOne of their conditions was that less concrete should be used, in comparison to other houses made by the Studio that they already knew. And we did exactly that.Two different construction systems were used in conjunction to build the house: a dry one and a wet one. While all inner walls were materialized with exposed concrete, in order to create the skin, the Studio chose a crystal envelope and a metal frame structure covered with wood of different kinds. One of the objectives behind this choice was to create a chromatic contrast between the inside and the outside. On the one hand, kiri wood was used for the former, and on the other, common pine wood treated with burnt oil was used for the latter. In this way, the darkened wood, along with the dark bronze anodized aluminum framings, would enhance the bright interior with its translucent crystals and light colored wood.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenAu naturel quebracho wood decks were placed facing the woods. Being exposed to nature, it was not long before they acquired a weatherworn look, similar to that of the pine wood skin on the walls. Our goal was that the rustic and silent esthetics of the house intertwined with the wild surroundings without imposing and stealing Nature’s protagonism.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenIn order to comply with the request to grant independence to the master suite, the house was organized in two separate modules layed out in such a way that, connected through a circulatory space, draw an “L” shaped floor plan. This disposition allowed the trees on the lot to maintain their relationship with the pine forest at the back and hence grant the terrain with fluidity and a greater green space.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac Adden As for the skin of the house, in an attempt to gain privacy from neighboring houses, while the dark wooden panels were set on its sides, translucent panes on the back and the front allowed the house to open up and expand. In this way, the social area, with its glazed limits, would present itself as a crossed-views gallery. Taking the whole of the house’s width, the back panels would generate a complete unification with the open air decks.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe soft elevation of the house, in addition to the single acacia in front of the entrance, granted intimacy from the street to the common area without diminishing its visuals. On the suite’s side looking at the open space produced by the “L” shaped floor plan, blind concrete walls were disposed in order to block visuals from the social area, while preserving its direct link to the outside space.In the center, the front bar is illuminated through a skylight on the roof, which apart from allowing the entrance of the sunrays, allows for air circulation in the bathroom. The rest of the house has natural lighting and ventilation. The house is equipped with radiant floors, air conditioning, and two stoves as heating systems.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenThe inner furniture—such as the dining room table, the kitchen counter, the wardrobe shelves and the night stands— was completely materialized with smooth concrete, thus constituting durable and low maintenance fixed equipment. Both flooring and roofing make part of the concrete construction system.Save this picture!© Daniela Mac AddenA hard nucleus at the center of a soft shell. A dark outside sheltering a clear bright inside. A chest hidden from the built surroundings, but open to the earth, the sun and the forest.Just what our clients asked for: a house bound to enhance their senses while allowing them to live the energy of the calm natural scenario.Project gallerySee allShow lessA Virtual Look Into J R Davidson’s Case Study House #11ArticlesHow To Become (or Rather, Look Like) a Famous ArchitectArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/893387/ecuestre-house-luciano-kruk Clipboard Area:  138 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projectslast_img read more

Mayor’s Fund for London merges Access Aspiration into organisation

The Mayor’s Fund considers the charity’s activities to be highly complementary to its Young London Working programme and its involvement in the Enterprise Adviser Network linking schools with employers.The Access Aspiration team has moved into the Mayor’s Fund offices at City Hall (pictured) and co-founders of Access Aspiration, Jenny Halpern Prince and David Meller, have joined the Board of the Mayor’s Fund for London.Jenny Halpern Prince said:“The link between social mobility and good career provision in schools, including work placements and other employer engagements, is well documented. It’s a sad fact that students from state schools, and particularly children from disadvantaged backgrounds, receive poorer quality placement opportunities than their independent school peers, who also benefit from strong family networks and connections. Being part of the Mayor’s Fund for London will help us to connect more young Londoners in more schools with high quality employers.”  125 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Mayor’s Fund for London merges Access Aspiration into organisation About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Demonstration at Grand Mosque of Paris in support of Iraq hostage Jill Carroll

first_img January 20, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Demonstration at Grand Mosque of Paris in support of Iraq hostage Jill Carroll Help by sharing this information Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” Organisation With the ultimatum given by the kidnappers of US journalist Jill Carroll due to expire this evening, a demonstration in support of Carroll was held today at the Grand Mosque of Paris by Reporters Without Borders, mosque rector Dalil Boubakeur and former French hostages Florence Aubenas, Roger Auque, Jean-Jacques Le Garrec, Roland Madura and Ivan Cerieix.Calling for Carroll’s release, the participants pointed that today’s demonstration was being held exactly one year after a similar show of support for Aubenas, who was finally freed and was able to take part today, and they said they hoped that today’s appeal would also be heard by those holding Carroll in Iraq.On 17 January, the Qatar-based satellite TV station Al Jazeera broadcast a video of Carroll in captivity and reported that her abductors had threatened to kill her if all the female detainees in Iraq were not freed within 72 hours. The deadline expires this evening.Carroll is a freelance reporter who has been writing for several Jordanian, Italian and US newspapers, including the Christian Science Monitor. She was kidnapped by gunmen at about 10 a.m. on 7 January in the west Baghdad neighbourhood of Adel, where she had expected to meet with a Sunni politician, Adnan al-Doulaimi. The body of her interpreter, Allan Enwiyah, was found at the scene of the abduction. He had been shot dead.A total of 55 journalists and 22 media assistants have been killed in Iraq since the start of the war in March 2003. Of these 77 victims, 56 (73 per cent) were Iraqi and four (5 per cent) were American.Thirty-five media workers have been abducted since the start of the war. Five of the kidnap victims – four Iraqis (Raeda Wazzan, Houssam Hilal Sarsam, Ahmed Hussein Al Maliki and Ahmed Jabbar Hashim) and an Italian (Enzo Baldoni) – were killed by their abductors. The others were all released safe and sound. Twenty-three of these kidnappings have taken place in or near Baghdad.Jill Carroll is the seventh woman journalist to be kidnapped in Iraq.Despite its name, the Boston-based Christian Science Monitor is not a religious newspaper. It is well known for the quality and thoroughness of both its international and domestic coverage.
