Many investors back stock market losers in the hope of picking it up at a bargain price just before it begins its fightback.Lately, bargain hunters have been busily backing construction and services company Kier Group (LSE:KIE), one of Neil Woodford’s most notorious stock picks (and boy did he have a few). At one point, the heavily shorted stock looked set to go the same way as other high-profile outsourcing specialists, the now defunct Carillion and Interserve. It’s still standing though, and the Kier share price trades at shockingly low levels.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…Just three years ago, the group’s stock stood proud at around 1,400p, only to lose more more than 95% of its value as it fell to a low of around 60p last summer. It has picked up slightly to trade at around 13op today, after climbing an impressive 60% in the last month, rewarding risk takers who got their timing right.High rewards, high risksAs ever, there’s no guarantee the Kier share price will repeat this outperformance. Anybody who buys it today must brace themselves for serious volatility in the weeks and months ahead. Are you up for that?Kier was caught by the Carillion fallout, which made banks reluctant to lend. That forced management into emergency mode, including a widely-snubbed £264m fundraising in December 2018. The company slumped to a pre-tax loss of £245m last year, down from a profit of £106m the year before, while debts rose alarmingly.After a management clear out, new CEO Andrew Davies has fast-tracked his turnaround plan, cutting jobs and suspending dividend payments. He’s also been offloading non-core operations, such as homebuilding business Kier Living, cutting jobs, and seeking £60m of cost savings. Debt remains a major worry and will for some time.The leaner company now aims to focus on infrastructure, regional construction, utilities and road maintenance. It boasts a decent order book, including high-profile contracts for multi-billion pound construction projects, notably Hinkley Point C, Crossrail and HS2, and continues to win new contracts. So would I buy it?Kier we go?My experience of companies in recovery is that the fightback is typically longer and harder than you think. You get that early share price spike, a kind of mini relief rally as the danger of total collapse is averted. But then the hard work begins. Kier Group is at the start of that phase.Its success partly depends on the UK economy. Some have cited Brexit as a worry, but that may be a headwind, with new chancellor Rishi Sunak under pressure to greenlight an infrastructure splurge, while HS2 has been approved.Kier Group stock is dirt cheap, trading at just 2.27 times earnings, which some will find hard to resist. It has a long road ahead. You should only invest if you’re prepared to be patient, and understand all the risks. On those terms, it could offer risk-seekers an exciting ride.

Stock market crash: the Covid-19 crisis confirms these 3 golden rules of investing

first_img Image source: Getty Images. The recent falls in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 may have caught many investors by surprise. However, it’s not an unusual event, since both indexes have experienced significant declines over short time periods since their inceptions.As well as teaching investors that no bull market lasts forever, the recent stock market crash also highlights that having a long-term view can be beneficial to your overall financial prospects. And, through diversifying, you can withstand even the very worst share price declines to post impressive returns in the long run.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…CyclicalityJust a handful of weeks ago, the outlook for the stock market was relatively positive. Certainly, there were risks, such as Brexit and US political uncertainty. But investors were generally in buoyant mood.The decline in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 highlights that stock markets are never static. Even though a bull or bear market may seem as though it’s likely to last forever, it’s never done so. As such, being aware of valuations and the scope for capital growth given past performance is a sound idea.It can enable you to see through investor sentiment. That means either holding off on the purchase of expensive stocks, or buying undervalued stocks while other investors are downbeat about their prospects.Long-term focusThe stock market’s recent crash has also highlighted the importance of adopting a long-term view of investing. For example, if you’ve a one-year time horizon then the current state of play is likely to prove very worrisome. You may experience realised losses over the coming months. However, if you’re more interested in the stock market’s performance over the next five or 10 years, you’re more likely to view recent falls as a buying opportunity.It’s never easy to focus on the long term. Naturally, investors worry when their portfolio valuations come under pressure. However, by accepting the volatility of shares as something that is simply part of the fabric of the stock market, it’s easier to overcome fear and remain calm when prices fall.DiversificationThe recent decline in oil prices highlights the importance of diversification. If you’d focused your portfolio on oil and gas companies, you’re likely to be experiencing a hugely challenging scenario. Weaker demand for oil, caused by a slowdown in global economic activity due to coronavirus, could mean the sector experiences major short-term losses.The sector may be relatively attractive due to its extra-low share price. But it’s nevertheless crucial to have exposure to many other industries. This helps to reduce company-specific risk within your portfolio. It also enables you to gain exposure to other sectors that could offer capital growth potential.This may improve your portfolio’s overall performance and help you to enjoy greater returns in the coming years.

Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – San Juan, Puerto Rico] Insertada detrás de las oficinas administrativas de la Diócesis Episcopal de Puerto Rico en Trujillo Alto, un municipio de ingresos mixtos dentro del área metropolitana de San Juan, se encuentra el Centro San Justo, escuela y guardería infantil que atiende a 140 niños con edades entre los dos meses y los cinco años de edad.El Centro San Justo funciona 50 semanas al año desde las 6:00 A.M. hasta las 5:30 P.M., con un programa flexible que le permite a los padres trabajadores, muchos de los cuales son madres solteras, optar por la atención infantil que más les convenga. San Justo es parte de VIDAS, Episcopal Social Services, Inc., el brazo de servicios sociales de la Diócesis de Puerto Rico, el cual busca responder a las necesidades de individuos y familias que ofrecen servicios integrados destinados a proporcionar una mejor calidad de vida.La diócesis tiene un largo historial de servicios de salud y sociales en la isla, que sigue creciendo y expandiendo en lo que es un momento crítico en Puerto Rico.En años recientes, Puerto Rico, un territorio de EE.UU. cuyos residentes son ciudadanos norteamericanos, ha experimentado cifras récord de migración debido a una arraigada recesión que se remonta a 2006 y a su complicada relación económica con Estados Unidos. En los últimos meses, la crisis de la deuda de 72.000 millones de Puerto Rico y su incapacidad de declararse en quiebra debido a su estatus territorial ha hecho repetidos titulares y ha suscitado comparaciones con Grecia. A principios de agosto, por primera vez en su historia, Puerto Rico incumplió sus obligaciones de pago a sus tenedores de bonos.“Trescientas mil personas se han ido”, dijo el obispo Wilfrido Ramos Orench, que se convirtió en el obispo provisional de la diócesis en marzo de 2014.El 8 de agosto, Ramos hizo pública una carta pastoral en que llamaba a las iglesias a unirse para abordar la crisis económica, a la que llamó la peor crisis económica y social desde la Gran Depresión de la década del 30 del siglo pasado. La carta hace un breve resumen de la historia económica de Puerto Rico a partir de la segunda guerra mundial y hasta que caduca el Código de Rentas Internas que le ofrecía exenciones en impuestos federales a las compañías norteamericanas sobre las ganancias obtenidas en Puerto Rico. El Congreso promulgó la exención en 1976 para estimular el desarrollo económico.“En el momento actual, está más claro que nunca, que estamos atravesando una grave crisis estructural de nuestro modelo económico-político neo liberal,” escribió Ramos en la carta. “El país tiene una gran acumulación de deuda pública y no ha tenido la capacidad de recaudar los fondos necesarios para el pago de la misma.“La respuesta de nuestros gobernantes ha sido reducir los servicios públicos, la imposición de impuestos regresivos, y utilizar los fondos de retiro de los empleados públicos. La capacidad crediticia del gobierno de Puerto Rico es prácticamente nula. Se auguran serias crisis en los servicios de salud, en los sistemas de retiro, y la perspectiva de un posible cierre del gobierno.”Respecto a la carta y a la respuesta de las iglesias a la crisis, “aquí es donde debemos estar”, dijo él durante una entrevista con Episcopal News Service el 12 de agosto.A eso se agrega, de manera más inmediata, una grave sequía que ha obligado a racionar el agua en el área metropolitana de San Juan, incluido Trujillo Alto. Muchos residentes tienen agua un día y luego pasan dos sin ella. El Centro San Justo, explicó la Rda. Ana R. Méndez, directora del mismo y quien también sirve como directora asociada de programa para VIDAS, está funcionando bajo un estado de emergencia y dependiendo de una cisterna.El gobierno de Puerto Rico proporciona ayuda económica a la guardería infantil para contribuir con su empeño de ofrecer asistencia, educación y oportunidades transformadoras a niños y sus familias. En mayo San Justo recibió un certificado de excelencia de la Administración para el Cuidado y Desarrollo de los Niños en reconocimiento a su labor y su compromiso con niños y niñas.Carla Rodríguez, trabaja de voluntaria en el Centro San Justo 20 horas a la semana. VIDAS depende de los voluntarios para ofrecer servicios. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.La mayoría de los estudiantes de la escuela proviene de hogares rotos, donde las mujeres han sido víctimas de altos índices de violencia doméstica, donde uno de los padres, o ambos, pueden estar encarcelados, y en algunos casos las abuelas crían a sus nietos.“Lo más hermoso es la transformación de los niños y las familias, transformación completa”, dijo Méndez en una entrevista con ENS en su oficina.Fue Méndez, educadora por mucho tiempo y ordenada sacerdote episcopal hace siete años, quien vio una necesidad en Loiza, un pequeño pueblo empobrecido de la costa noreste de Puerto Rico, donde ella atiende la misión de Santiago y Felipe, para un programa que prepara a adolescentes embarazadas para la maternidad y la independencia económica, y para educar a otras adolescentes en la prevención del embarazo y de enfermedades de transmisión sexual. Ella fundó Canciones de Cuna en 2009.Además de Canciones de Cuna y de San Justo, el mayor centro de atención infantil, VIDAS dirige otras tres guarderías infantiles, y el Hogar San Miguel, un albergue para menores que han huido de sus familias.En septiembre, la diócesis empezará la construcción en Ponce —con la ayuda de una subvención de $250.000 de la fundación del cantante Marc Anthony— de una instalación que le permitirá extender sus servicios a adolescentes sin hogar.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Newspaper charity appeals

National newspapers have launched their seasonal charity appeals. But you would only know that if you bought the paper versions. UK Fundraising reads the papers and finds they aren’t encouraging online readers to give. Read the report below.Online newspapers ignore Christmas appealsNational newspapers have launched their seasonal charity appeals. But you would only know that if you bought the paper versions. UK Fundraising curls up with the online newspapers and finds they aren’t encouraging readers to give. The Times is encouraging its readers to spread their generosity around the world. It has selected three different charities working on three different continents as the partners in its 1998 Christmas appeal: Alzheimer’s Research Trust – five-year research into risk factors Oxfam – bridge reconstruction in Honduras Zoological Society of London – Cheetah project Advertisement  68 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 8 December 1998 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The paper version includes a half-page promotion, and this is backed up with an editorial comment further on in the paper. On the Times’ Web site, however, there is little evidence of the appeal. The Comment text is there, but there is no indication of how to support the appeal. Not only is there no online donation facility, but there is not even an address or telephone number. The Observer’s appeal for the Children’s Trust is nowhere to be found on its Web site. Nor is there any evidence of the Independent’s Christmas Appeal for Age Concern, St Christopher’s Hospice, and Action on Elder Abuse. The Guardian is appealing on behalf of up to eight charities, including WaterAid, Family Service Units, and the Soil Association. Some of the appeal income will be distributed to the winning charities of the Guardian Jerwood Award. Again, there is no mention of the Web site on the paper’s cut-out donation form. Which is appropriate because there was no sign on the Guardian Web site of the Christmas appeal. The Daily Telegraph is the only newspaper that incorporates its Christmas appeal on its Web site, the Electronic Telegraph. Indeed, it stands head and shoulders above the rest, and earns its description of itself as the “pioneering online newspaper.”: it has been featuring the newspaper’s Christmas charity appeals since at least 1995. You can read about the 1994 Christmas Appeal for Save the Children which raised £155,000. Incidentally, the appeal address is still listed. You can read about the 1995 Christmas Appeal on behalf of Care, Feed the Children, Serious Road Trip and Unicef, for their work in former Yugoslavia. The 1996 Christmas Appeal raised money for Médecins Sans Frontières, the British Red Cross and Helen House children’s hospice, and the 1997 Christmas Appeal was held in aid of Dr Graham’s Homes at Kalimpong, India, Save the Children Fund, and CLIC (Cancer and Leukaemia in Children). 1997 also saw the Telegraph Diana Memorial Fund appeal for various anti-landmine charities. The Electronic Telegraph is also noticably scrupulous about reporting back on each year’s appeal’s results and success. You can find out how well each appeal did over the last four years, with examples of how the money was used. This year’s Daily Telegraph Christmas appeal is in aid of the British Limbless Ex-Service Men’s Association, National Autistic Society, and Mother Teresa Association. Each charity is featured in a separate article on the site, each of which includes information on how and where to give. If there is one area in which the Electronic Telegraph could improve, it is by offering the facility to donate online. At the very least they could link in to the Charities Aid Foundation’s CharityCard site. Tagged with: Digital Giving/Philanthropy Individual giving Newspaper charity appeals read more
