Here are 3 lessons from the 2008 stock market crash to help investors in 2020

first_img 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. Enter Your Email Address Here are 3 lessons from the 2008 stock market crash to help investors in 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The year 2008 seems a long time ago and a lot in the world has changed since then (I have less hair for one). But something that hasn’t changed is the volatility on the stock market. It was very high in 2008, and as we stand now, it’s volatile again.At the end of 2008, the FTSE 100 index had fallen 31% during the year, making it the worst performance on record. As of Friday, the FTSE 100 index was down 28% for 2020. There are several other similarities that investors like myself can see in the last large downturn in the markets. And there are lessons that can be learned from it too.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…V-shaped recoveryThis phrase has started to be used over the past week regarding the stock market. In essence, there’s a strong likelihood that when the recovery comes after we hit the bottom, it will be in a V style. The first part of the V is the sharp downward sell-off, followed by the second half of the V, which is the sharp bounce-back.This was what we saw in 2009 when, after the fall in 2008 to end around 4,200 points, the FTSE 100 rallied to finish 2009 at around 5,300 points. If we see such a move again this year or next year, it means investors will be wise not to sell their shares now so they don’t lose out on the bounce-back when it happens.Fear vs greedThese two emotions are the most powerful in investing, and can lead us to make irrational decisions to buy or sell. This was seen during the crash in 2008 when investors panic-sold to such an extent that market limits were triggered. For example, in the US, trading halts for 15 minutes if there’s a fall of 5% or more to enable participants to pause and regroup.This year, we’ve seen the same thing happen, with large moves causing panic-selling. I’m making sure that I don’t follow suit as such emotional reactions will make me a worse investor. The market can be oversold easily and I know I shouldn’t sell when the market is undervaluing a stock I hold and really believe in. Rather, I should hold on to the stock and base my actions on the fundamentals surrounding the firm instead.Buying opportunitiesMy last lesson is arguably the most important. Back in 2008, there were some incredibly good buying opportunities. I remember a good friend of mine at the time buying stock in Lloyds Banking Group when the share price was 29p, which he sold two years later at around 70p!You might have other stories about great buys during 2008, with firms being severely undervalued. Again for 2020, there are some firms that in my opinion offer longer-term investors some great potential returns. My Foolish colleague James McCombie digs into the investment case for one such share (RELX) here.An important disclaimer is that you can never pick the bottom of the market. Some who invested in early 2008 had to endure large unrealised losses before the market bounced back. This may be the same for 2020, and we may have further downside ahead. However, there are many stocks trading at prices today that I think undervalue them. So buying now for the longer term and not being fearful is my strategy.  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.

This new entry illuminates at night, acting as a beacon welcoming those arriving. Timber decking, raw pine studs and expressed fixings celebrate the modest construction methods of the link. The materials selected have minimal in­sulative properties, exposing the occupant to the thermal and lighting conditions of outside. This physical ‘awakening’ height­ens the transition between old and new.  The pavilion and house provide versatile space for relaxation and entertainment, as comfortable for a couple as for several families.

Ag Producer Sentiment Turns Higher; Many Expect Lower Taxes

first_img SHARE Ag Producer Sentiment Turns Higher; Many Expect Lower Taxes SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Producer Sentiment Turns Higher; Many Expect Lower Taxes Previous articleDecember Sees Near-Record Ethanol ExportsNext articleThe State of the Rural Economy is “Fragile” Hoosier Ag Today After trending lower in late 2017, the Purdue/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer turned higher in January. The monthly survey of 400 agricultural producers from across the U.S. indicated that the measure of producer sentiment climbed to 135 points at the beginning of 2018, up 9 points from December’s 126.The uptick in sentiment was driven by an improvement in both of the barometer’s two sub-indices: the Index of Current Conditions and the Index of Future Expectations. The improvement in the Index of Future Expectations, a one-month jump of 11 points, was the most obvious driver behind the barometer’s January increase. This was the largest one-month improvement in future expectations since January 2017. The change was further supported by an increase in the Index of Current Conditions, which rose to a reading of 144—a more modest rise of 5 points compared to December 2017. Producers’ appraisal of current conditions in January was also a bit more positive than last summer when the index reached 142 and was the most positive reading for the Index of Current Conditions since data collection began in October 2015.The January survey provided the first opportunity following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to assess producers’ perspectives regarding the likely impact on their farming operations. Two questions related to the tax bill were posed. The first question asked producers to rate the expected impact of the tax bill on their farm operations on a scale that ranged from 1 (very adverse) to 9 (very beneficial). Although the single largest response category (35 percent) was 5, suggesting a neutral rating, there were far more producers who expect a beneficial impact than a negative impact from the tax bill. For example, nearly half of all producers (47 percent) expect the tax bill to be beneficial to their operations, providing a rank of 6 or higher on the survey. Conversely, approximately one out of five (19 percent) respondents provided a ranking of 4 or less, indicating they expect the tax bill to have a negative impact on their farming operations.A second question related to the tax bill asked producers if they expect the taxes their families face to be higher, lower, or about the same as a result of the tax bill’s passage. Approximately four out of ten producers (43 percent) expect their families’ tax burdens to decline as a result of the tax bill’s passage. On the other end of the spectrum, nearly one-fifth of producers (18 percent) expect their taxes to increase as a result of the tax bill. Finally, 40 percent of respondents said they expected their family taxes to be about the same under the new tax bill. It’s possible the 40 percent of respondents expecting no change in their taxes and the 35 percent of producers who provided a neutral rating with respect to the expected impact of the bill on their farm operations, could reflect uncertainty regarding the specific content of the tax bill and the fact that IRS regulations implementing the tax bill have yet to be issued.In conclusion, agricultural producer sentiment improved during January compared to a month earlier, driven by improved expectations for the future and, to a lesser extent, by a perceived improvement in current conditions. The increase in the Index of Current Conditions marked the continuation of a long-term trend dating back to summer 2016. In contrast, agricultural thought leaders’ perspective on current economic conditions has been declining continuously since April 2017 and is now back within the range of readings observed throughout much of 2016. This month’s survey provided the first opportunity to gauge producers’ perception of the Tax Cuts and Job Act of 2017 on their farming operations and their families’ tax obligations. Responses indicated that, although there is still a great deal of uncertainty regarding the tax bill’s expected impact, more farm operators expect the tax bill to be beneficial to their farming operations and to lower their families’ taxes than expect a negative impact and higher taxes.The full report can be found here.Source: James Mintert, David Widmar and Michael Langemeier with Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 7, 2018 last_img read more

Families Encouraged to Choose Water Over Sugary Drinks for New Year 2016

Required fields are marked * Top of the News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS The City’s Public Health Department encourages families to be more health conscious in the new year by trading in their children’s sugary drinks for water.The consumption of sugary drinks is one of the leading causes of weight-related health risks, and California leads the country in childhood obesity among children between the ages of 2 and 4. The Pasadena Public Health Department is working with the Choose Health LA Kids Program’s parent collaborative to urge Pasadena families to make the switch to encourage long-term healthy habits.“A simple change like drinking water during each meal and every time you’re thirsty has many health benefits, and it makes you feel good too,” said Michael Johnson, Director for the Pasadena Public Health Department. “With the support of the community, we are confident we can prevent obesity and other health conditions in our children.”One of the ways Pasadena is encouraging parents to replace sugary drinks with water is by participating in the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s media and community outreach campaign “Water: The Healthiest Choice.”“We want to encourage parents to choose the sugar free, calorie free, and obesity free drink for their children – water,” said Dr. Paul Simon, MD, MPH, Director, Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. “There are many simple ways to make water more appealing to kids. Parents can go to for tips and easy recipes.”The Choose Health LA Kids Program is a countywide early childhood obesity prevention initiative of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, which is funded by First 5 LA.

Good News for Households: Poverty Down and Income Up

first_img  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Good News for Households: Poverty Down and Income Up Home / Daily Dose / Good News for Households: Poverty Down and Income Up Tagged with: CoreLogic foreclosure rate Household Income poverty rate Zillow Recently released data from the U.S. Census Bureau reports that the U.S. annual household incomes grew 5.2 percent year-over-year in 2015, to $56,516, the first annual increase since 2007 and the strongest pace of income growth in a decade.In a recent post from Zillow, it is noted that in particular, income growth was strongest among Hispanic households. This was shown to be an increase of 6.1 percent from 2014 in comparison to 4.4 percent for non-Hispanic whites, 4.1 percent for blacks, and 2.5 percent for Asians. Zillow does note, however, that Asians had overall higher incomes and ended with the largest dollar gains of $2,800, versus $2,600 for non-Hispanic whites and Hispanics, and $1,500 for blacks. Zillow states that this is notable because Hispanics, in particular, were hit hard during the housing bust and the Hispanic homeownership rate has struggled get back to pre-crisis levels. Zillow expects that this strong household income growth among this mostly young population means a likelihood for housing demand in the future.In addition to increasing household incomes, Zillow states that poverty has also started to reduce. Zillow cites that the poverty rate from 2010 through 2014 remained high, but then declined last year to the lowest level seen since 2008. Despite this though, Zillow shares that except for the recent recession, the poverty rate is currently higher than it has been at any time since 1996.Specifically, though, poverty was shown to have declined across the board for most demographic groups, falling particularly low for Hispanics 2.2 percentage points to 21.4 percent. Zillow also shows that poverty rates for blacks declined 2.1 percentage points to 24.1 percent. Among non-Hispanic Whites, it was shown that the poverty rate fell by 1 percentage point to 9.1 percent. Additionally, among Asians the poverty rate was down 0.6 percentage points (not statistically significant according to Zillow) to 11.4 percent.In a potential sign of shifting residential patterns, the poverty rate declined more in central cities (-2.1 percentage points, to 16.8 percent) than in suburban areas (-1.1 percentage points, to 10.8 percent), although it still remains higher in cities.These positives for household’s financial situations in U.S. households follows similar patterns as those for foreclosure starts and completions as well as loan delinquencies. Recent data from CoreLogic shows that the national foreclosure rate in July was back to where it was in August 2007‒‒a little less than 1 percent overall. Moreover, foreclosures were down in July, compared to June and to a year earlier. In June, the national foreclosure rate was 1.3 percent. By July, CoreLogic reported, that number had shrunk to 0.9 percent. Compared to July 2015, foreclosures are down almost 30 percent, from a total 501,000 homes to 355,000.“Loan modifications, foreclosures, and strong housing and labor markets have each played a role in bringing the foreclosure rate to the lowest level in nine years,” said CoreLogic chief economist Frank Nothaft.
