Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. James J. McCombie | Saturday, 29th February, 2020 | More on: ULVR Let me begin by saying there is nothing good about a virus spreading through the global population. It is not good to have people sick and dying. Supply chains are being disrupted and a recession is a real possibility. Stock markets around the world are falling because corporate revenues and profits are expected to take a hit. For those close to retirement, their pension pots are taking a hit, which is awful, and I hope they recover soon.A chance to start bigIf you are just starting to plan for a retirement that is decades away, declining share prices could work in your favour. Whatever money you have to start funding your retirement pot will now go much further.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…If you have money sitting in a Cash ISA, or savings account, that you want to put into a Self-Invested Personal Pension, it will buy more shares or fund units now than at any time since about 2016. By the time you retire the markets are highly likely to have moved higher, and your initial position will be worth a lot more. But along the way, because you bought more units or shares at the start, more dividends get paid, which can be used to buy more and more shares and units. When you do come to retire, you will likely own many more units and shares than you started with, worth much more than they would be now.When it comes to what to buy I would suggest buying index trackers or finding quality stocks. Tracking the FTSE 100 or the FTSE 250 with a fund spreads your risk across all of the individual companies in the index. What I mean by quality stocks are those with strong balance sheets, competitive advantages, and stable revenues. Think of the big pharmaceutical companies or consumer giants like Unilever. Companies with large, diverse supply chains are better suited to deal with the current situation. Healthcare budgets remain fairly stable during crises, and well-known brands support revenues. Strong, low-debt balance sheets mean interest payments are made even when revenues fall.Dividends are usually paid by quality stocks, and index trackers. If a retiree has a large number of dividend-paying shares or units of an index tracker that pays out dividends, then market crashes should not bother them as much. So long as dividends are not being cut, then the income will continue to flow to fund retirement spending. Quality stocks are less likely to see their dividends cut and dividend yields should not disappear on entire indexes.But don’t try to buy dipsWhat I am suggesting is that for those that have been thinking of saving for retirement, but have held off, now might be the time to finally commit. I am not suggesting that the best way to invest is to always wait for the market to crash.If you are planning to make regular contributions, or are wondering whether or not to keep contributing right now, then my advice is to keep investing whatever happens. Predicting market dips is difficult, and trying to buy them probably does worse than regular investing. 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.

Giant Black Ferns prop bulldozers her way through hapless defenders in ridiculous mismatch

first_imgWednesday Jan 2, 2019 Giant Black Ferns prop bulldozers her way through hapless defenders in ridiculous mismatch New Zealand Women’s prop Aotearoa Kate Mata’u scored this incredible try in the ladies Iberian Cup match between Sporting C Portugal and Olimpico Pozeulo (Spain) a few weeks back. She demolished all in front of her in an impressive show of power and balance. ADVERTISEMENTA Test international, Mata’u is now plying her trade in Portugal, where she is no doubt causing all sorts of trouble in both scrums and the tight loose.On this occasion, she was first dummied by the scrumhalf from a quick tap, then decided to take things into her own hands as she produced an almighty pick and go that left a handful of opposition tacklers on the floor as she powered over.While the tackling efforts may be questioned, a lady of her size will always be tough to stop at this level.With Mata’u in full force, the final score was 26-8 to Sporting Clube de Portugal.Submit your amateur club or school clips to us via rugbydump.com/blitz and we’ll share the best videos!

Limerick silver to shine at UK auction

first_imgWhatsApp by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A PAIR of Limerick silver tablespoons dating back to 1785 is estimated to fetch up to £1,800 at auction in the UK next week.The spoons by Maurice Fitzgerald, from a well-known family of silversmiths, are engraved with the Prince of Wales feathers motif, which is a particular feature of Limerick silver from the 18th Century. They will now go under the hammer at auction in Gloucestershire on January 26.“Perhaps as few as ten pieces of Limerick silver come onto the open market every year and accordingly this pair of spoons is estimated to fetch between £1,200 to £1,800,” a spokeswoman for Chorley’s Auctioneers explained.“Irish silver has always attracted collectors, both because it is scarcer than its English counterparts but also because it has its own unmistakable character. 18th Century Irish silversmiths produced silver with a distinctive whimsical feel to it; this was partly because they were geographically isolated from fashions elsewhere.”The collection to be offered later this month includes several pieces of Dublin silver, however it is predicted that “provincial pieces” from Limerick and Cork will attract the strongest bidding.“The value of commodities is affected by availability and therefore it is provincial Irish silver that attracts the most attention.” Linkedin Facebook WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Twitter Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival TAGSChorley’s AuctioneersGloucestershirelimerickLimerick Silver Printcenter_img NewsLocal NewsLimerick silver to shine at UK auctionBy Alan Jacques – January 21, 2016 979 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Advertisement Email Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Previous articleSoccer – Limerick FC to begin 2016 season at home to UCDNext articleModel citizen supports new anti-fur campaign in Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie last_img read more

Organisational risk of the Peter Principle

first_img Comments are closed. Organisational risk of the Peter PrincipleShared from missc on 9 Dec 2014 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Read full article center_img The Peter Principle is a concept inwhich the selection of a candidate for a position is based on their performance in their current role rather than on their abilities relevant to the intended role. The business then of course running the risk of promoting someone until they are in a role in which they under-perform. How do we avoid this?From an HR perspective, the risk associated with the Peter Principle can be negated simply taking on-board the direction that an employee wishes to take their career, as opposed to promoting a staff member according to the company organisational structure only. Of course this doesn’t mean that we place less importance on the business objectives, because of course these are very important also – What it does mean that we should be using far more foresight when hiring and aiming to align someone’s key professional growth objectives with the organisational goals as much as possible.When we align an employee’s growth plan with organisational objectives, both parties stand to reap the benefits and in turn minimise risk. The employee is given the opportunity to achieve their professional goals and grow their knowledge and experience in the areas that the business requires that skill/experience which of course limits the likelihood of poor performance.Recruitment needs to become less reactionary (where possible) and more forward thinking and strategic. In doing so, employees will note that you have their best interests in mind along with other commercial interests, and this in turn – in most cases, will be reciprocated in the form of staff being engaged, driven and committed to achievement, all whilst managing potential future risk.

Pent up property demand surging into the market, says Rightmove
