Global economic growth of around 5% is expected and this should provide a nice backdrop for equity markets. That said, we can’t rule out another stock market crash. Here are three reasons stocks could crash again next year.Good news is priced inOne thing that concerns me is there’s a very high level of optimism in the stock market right now. Since Pfizer announced it had developed a coronavirus vaccine back in November, many stocks have surged.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…I think some stocks trade at overly-optimistic prices. Take hotel operator InterContinental Hotels, for example. Currently, its share price is only about 5% below where it was in January 2020, pre-Covid. That seems too high for me, looking at what’s going on in the world today. Realistically, travel isn’t going to go back to normal for years.Given how much good news is priced into the market, it probably wouldn’t take much in the way of bad news to cause a stock sell-off. Covid-19 could cause another stock market crash Another reason I think we could potentially see a stock market crash is that Covid-19 isn’t over yet. Just recently, we learned there’s a new strain of the virus. This is likely to result in further challenges.Of course, we have vaccines. However, looking at how governments have handled the crisis so far, I can’t say I’m confident these will be rolled out smoothly. Just recently, Pfizer said millions of vaccines had been sitting in storage because the US government hadn’t given the company directions on where to send them.Until we see mass vaccination, plenty of businesses are going to continue experiencing challenges.Bubbles in the marketFinally, I think there are some genuine bubbles in the market at the moment. Electric vehicle (EV) stocks are a good example. After its amazing run in 2020, Tesla is now one of the largest companies in the world. That just doesn’t make any sense, in my view.It’s worth noting that ‘Big Short’ hedge fund manager Michael Burry – who called the housing market crash correctly – recently said he is shorting Tesla stock. That says something. If we see a crash in these bubbly areas of the market, it could spread to other areas of the market.I’m prepared for a stock market crash in 2021Now, I’m not going to rush out and sell all my stocks tomorrow because there’s a chance we could see a stock market crash in 2021. After all, crashes are notoriously unpredictable. That said, I think it’s worth planning ahead and being prepared for a crash. If you’re prepared and have a little bit of cash on the sidelines, stock market crashes can be amazing opportunities.This time last year, for example, I had around 20% of my portfolio in cash, ready for a market crash. When volatility surged in February and March, I piled into the market, snapping up great shares at bargain prices. This paid off massively. For the year, I had around 10 stocks with returns of more than 50%. My best performer, ASOS, returned about 300%.In 2021, I’ll be taking the same approach. No one knows if we’ll see a stock market crash this year. But if we do, I’ll be ready… Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA 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.

Graduate Program Participant Learns How a Company Becomes the Best

first_imgChallenging. That’s how I’d summarize my first year after the Dell EMEA Graduate Program. I’d add to this first word these two as well though: innovation and diversity. I remember like it was yesterday what my dreams were on the last training that took place in Frankfurt: achieve my goals, learn something new every single day and create projects from scratch.During this year, I’ve learned awesome things as an account manager, like how to manage with different people in many different situations, and I’ve had the chance to find out about the different products we have. We, at Dell, are the number one in many things: servers, storage or virtualization solutions… but I’ve always thought that a company truly becomes the best when it invests in people. That’s why I also used the words: innovation – because we invest constantly in making the best products and diversity – because those products are created and offered by the best professionals in the world with different cultures and profiles, which is amazing.“Challenge, innovation and diversity are the keywords that define my first year after the program.ShareI had the opportunity to find out where I wanted to focus on in my career, and “I fell in love” with our IoT solutions. I even made a visit to our impressive IoT Lab in Limerick and I just knew that I wanted to be part of the future Dell Technologies is creating.In the meantime I was developing Dell for Entrepreneurs España, helping the best startups from Spain to become better with an awesome team: Carlos Rebollo, Jesús Ruiz and Gonzalo Elías, another proof of how Dell works with innovation. I’m proud to tell as well that last week we inaugurated PRIDE España, where people from the LGTB collective are represented here in Dell EMC. As I said, diversity is our main flag!Finishing this part of my Dell EMC journey, I am now looking forward to my new role: IoT Business Development for EMEA in Dublin! I guess I’ll have to write another post soon talking about IoT… 🙂last_img read more

Township To Take A Longer Look At Shuttered Historic House

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – Can the MacLeod Rice House be saved? And should it?That’s what township officials hope to find out as they seek requests for proposals from architectural historians to prepare a conditions assessment report on the township-owned structure.The report is to, “go through the building in a determined way to give us the sense of how much it would cost if someone would try to restore the building and make it useful again,” explained Township Administrator Anthony Mercantante, “to give us a sense of what it would really cost.”“Most people seem to have an affection for it to be saved one of these days and restored,” Mercantante said. But that requires taking “a good hard look at it and seeing what that would entail, what it would really cost.”The distinctive MacLeod Rice House is part of the Croydon Hall complex, 900 Leonardville Road, in the township’s Leonardo section. The building, according to Mercantante, has been deteriorating for a number of years and was deemed unsafe a few years ago. The township moved those using the building to other locations.The Middletown Township Historical Society and township Municipal Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse had been using the building’s office space. The Bulldog Youth Athletic Association, or BYAA, had been using part of the building for its wrestling program, according to Mercantante.As part of the request for proposal, Mercantante added, officials would like whoever received the contract to investigate whether the site could possibly qualify for the state and/or national Register of Historic Places.Making either or both of those lists would indicate the location has some historic significance.And it does, maintained Randall Gabrielan, Monmouth County historian and vice chairman of the Monmouth County Historical Commission. One of the location’s defining historical roles involves one of its former owners, Melvin Rice, and his friendship to then governor and future U.S. President Woodrow Wilson, who, according to Gabrielan, had actually visited Rice and stayed at the home. “It’s an association that may well provide eligibility to the national register,” Gabrielan suspected. The MacLeod Rice House was built in 1894 in the Queen Anne architectural style popular in the Victorian age. It was intended as the summer residence for Donald MacLeod, a successful New York City businessman, an importer of linens, in the Gilded Age, according to Gabrielan. Upon MacLeod’s death the building became home to his widow, Harriet, who eventually married Melvin Rice, MacLeod’s former employee – with whispers at the time suspecting Rice of having an affair with Harriet while she was still married to MacLeod, Gabrielan offered as a little piece of historical gossip.Rice, circa 1910, remodeled the building, adopting a more classical revival architectural style, that the structure has to this day.Rice died in 1924 and Harriet continued to live in the house until selling it to John Carr in the mid-1940s. Carr used the building as a residence. He established a boys’ boarding school, using the building and others constructed on the grounds. Croydon Hall, as the school was called, catered to the scions of wealthy families. Carr, according to Gabrielan, ran the school with middling success until closing it in 1975.Mercantante said the township acquired the entire location in 1977 and had used that building and accompanying structures for various municipal offices.Gabrielan charged the building was falling into disrepair. “The building was long neglected,” he said. And while there were places in the building that were in questionable condition, the portion of the building the historical society had been using “was a solid as a rock,” he said. Gabrielan has not revisited the building for several years.The Township Committee has the right to reject any or all proposals and has up to 60 days to award the contract, if it decides to move for ward.Even if the plan proceeds, those interested shouldn’t expect a quick fix for the building. “It’s going to take time,” Mercantante said. “It probably would be a phased project over many years, if it was decided at all that it’s worthwhile doing.”last_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SATURDAY DECEMBER 31, 2016

first_imgTRAINERS FANCY CHROME FOR HORSE OF THE YEAR            Arrogate or California Chrome, California Chrome or Arrogate.Arrogate defeated California Chrome by a half-length in a dramatic running of the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5. It was his second stakes appearance, both wins in Grade I races.Chrome’s body of work last year took him from the Golden State to Dubai as the popular California-bred boosted his earnings to $14,452,650, a North American record.So when it comes to Horse of the Year for 2016, a random sampling of Santa Anita-based trainers Saturday morning when the main track was closed for training due to rain drew a majority of Chrome votes:Richard Baltas: Arrogate. He beat Chrome heads up.Rafael Beccera: Chrome. Art Sherman, he’s my man.Simon Callaghan: Arrogate.Jack Carava: Chrome. He ran well all year. He’s a tough horse.Victor Garcia: Chrome’s been solid all the time. He deserves it.Mark Glatt: They should be co-winners. You can’t take anything away from Chrome but Arrogate did beat him, and it wasn’t because of a bad ride. Chrome’s been a machine.Bruce Headley: Chrome. Art (trainer Art Sherman) has the best horse in the world, and when he was young, he galloped the best horse in the world–Swaps.Brian Koriner: Chrome deserves it for the year he had. He traveled all over. He’s retiring; Arrogate can win it next year.Paulo Lobo: Arrogate. He beat Chrome.Mike Machowsky: Chrome should get it. Arrogate’s racing next year and he can get it then. This is more about bragging rights, anyway. Chrome’s people were true sportsmen for racing him all year when they could have retired him, but they’re both super horses.Alfredo Marquez: Chrome. He should have won the Classic. He’s a great horse.Jeff Mullins: Chrome deserves it. I hope he gets it.Jorge Periban: Chrome.John Shirreffs: I’m a Chromie. He’s a Cal-bred, c’mon.Gary Stute: No comment. FINISH LINES: Arrogate galloped one mile on the training track Saturday at 8:40 a.m. under exercise rider Dana Barnes . . . There are no guaranteed pools in exotic wagering today due to inclement weather . . . Hearty get-well wishes to longtime horse owner and Major League baseball star (three World Series rings with the 1952, ’53 and ’56 Yankees) Irv Noren, 92, who was hospitalized yesterday but is now recovering at home in Oceanside from a bout with pneumonia . . . Belated condolences to family and friends of late handicapper and turf writer Russ Harris, who died Tuesday in Bryn Mawr, Pa., at the age of 93. A 2011 inductee in the National Museum of Racing’s Joe Hirsch Media Roll of Honor and one of the best and most widely recognized public handicappers of all time, Harris served in the U.S. Army during World War II in Normandy, France, and also participated in the Rhineland Ardennes and Central Europe campaign, receiving several medals for his service. Harris swept the nine-race card at Belmont Park with his top selections on May 8, 1981 . . . Santa Anita offers Dollar Day tomorrow, with hot dogs, beer and soda available for just a buck. Santa Anita will be dark for live racing Tuesday through Thursday, with live racing resuming Friday, Jan. 6, at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m. . . . Players wishing to gain a seat in the 2017 National Handicapping Championship Challenge in Las Vegas Jan. 7 or get a head start in the 2018 event can buy in to Santa Anita’s Players Choice contest for $500. The top five finishers in the Players Choice competition will have their pick of a 2017 or 2018 NHC Challenge entry. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top four Players Choice finishers: $10,000, $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000. For further information, visit santaanita.com/contest. HORSE OF THE YEAR CONTENDER ARROGATE IN 2017 DEBUTA ‘POLL’ OF TRAINERS FAVORS CHROME OVER ARROGATE ARROGATE GALLOPS MILE FOR TOMORROW’S SAN PASQUALcenter_img ARROGATE SAN PASQUAL WIN WOULD AID HOY BIDArrogate is a certainty to be a finalist for the Eclipse Award as the 2016 Horse of the Year, his credentials confirmed with wins in the Grade I Travers Stakes at Saratoga in August and a memorable victory in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5.The quest for a 2017 championship begins at the first opportunity–in Sunday’s $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes at 1 1/16 miles at Santa Anita.Ballots for the 2016 championship are due on Jan. 3 with an announcement on the finalists to be made later.Arrogate is a no-brainer for three-year-old male, while his main rival for Horse of the Year, California Chrome, is a lock for top older horse.Both have merits for the Horse of the Year title“It’s a tough call,” said respected private clocker and bloodstock agent Gary Young. “I think they are by far and away the best horses in America, and Arrogate definitely should be three-year-old of the year, and Chrome should definitely be older horse of the year.“Now who gets Horse of the Year? I don’t know. They’re two very, very good horses. I couldn’t fault people who vote for either horse.”For the record, Arrogate, trained by Bob Baffert, fresh off a Triple Crown triumph with Horse of the Year American Pharoah in 2015, has but two stakes wins this year, the Grade I Travers by 13 ½ lengths in track record time, and the Classic, which capped a five-race winning streak.Chrome, on the other hand, was undefeated this year under the direction of trainer Art Sherman until Arrogate took his measure, winning six straight, three of them Grade I’s.“To have two horses back to back like a Pharoah and an Arrogate in this close of a time frame, that’s like when Lucien Lauren had Riva Ridge and Secretariat back to back (Riva Ridge was the Eclipse Award-winning two-year-old male in 1971 and outstanding older male in 1973; the mighty Secretariat was Horse of the Year as a two-year-old in 1972 and at three in 1973).“Arrogate and California Chrome are just two really good horses,” Young said. “We’ll just leave it at that for now.”            As an afterthought, what about two-year-old filly champion of 2015 Songbird, who won four Grade I stakes from coast to coast on three different tracks and suffered her lone defeat by the narrowest of noses to an older mare, three-time Eclipse champion Beholder?Not exactly chopped liver.The field for the San Pasqual, race eight of nine: Prospect Park, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 10-1; Accelerate, Tyler Baze, 8-1; Dalmore, Kent Desormeaux, 20-1; Midnight Storm, Rafael Bejarano, 4-1; and Arrogate, Mike Smith, 1-5.last_img read more

Economy grows at 3.8% in fourth quarter

first_img26 February 2014 South Africa’s economy bounced back in the fourth quarter of 2013, growing at a rate of 3.8% on the back of stronger performances from the country’s manufacturing and mining sectors, Statistics SA reported on Tuesday. This followed gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 0.7% for the third quarter. Investec senior economist Annabel Bishop warned against reading too much into the figures, however, telling Business Report that the rebound reflected not economic strength so much as the return to work of strikers following protracted strikes earlier in the year. Stats SA also reported that South Africa’s overall economic growth for 2013, according to the first preliminary estimates, stood at 1.9%. This was down from 2.5% growth in 2012 and 3.6% growth in 2011. “The nominal GDP at market prices in 2013 was R3.4-trillion, which is R246-billion more than in 2012,” Stats SA said in a statement, adding that the most notable performers for the year were finance, real estate and business services (expanding by R54-billion to R652-billion) and general government services (expanding by R52-billion to R518-billion). In the fourth quarter, Stats SA said, the country’s manufacturing sector recorded growth of 12.3%, thanks to higher production in food and beverages, petroleum, chemical products, rubber and plastics, and motor vehicles, parts and accessories. Mining, driven by higher production on the country’s gold and platinum mines, grew by 15.7% in the quarter. SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Woods cleared for golf activities with no restrictions

Steinberg said doctors last week allowed Woods “to proceed with no restrictions,” which is when he began posting video of fuller golf shots.“He has started to hit balls at a more aggressive rate,” Steinberg said. “He feels really good, but he’s going to take it very slowly. I think he’s excited that he’s not feeling pain. That’s what gets him excited, being able to bend down and pick up his kids.“He’s taking it from wedges and short irons to the longer clubs.

Northern Eastern BC has intake clinics to help with mental health for

first_img“With school in full swing, midterms over and the holiday season on the horizon, December makes sense as a time for parents to check in with their children to see how things are going,” said Wade Maybie, a registered nurse at the Child and Youth Mental Health (CYMH) Clinic in Saanich B.C.Maybie says it’s best to call ahead to be sure you are within the clinic’s catchment area.
