If I could buy only 1 FTSE 100 share in this market crash, it’d be this

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Cliff D’Arcy | Friday, 27th March, 2020 | More on: GSK In one of his wise, homespun lessons for investors, legendary investor Warren Buffett once likened shares to hamburgers. He asked this simple question:“If you plan to eat hamburgers throughout your life and are not a cattle producer, should you wish for higher or lower prices for beef?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…The billionaire ‘Oracle of Omaha’ then added: “If you expect to be a net saver during the next five years, should you hope for a higher or lower stock market during that period?”Buyers should welcome bargain pricesThe answer to both questions is that ongoing buyers of hamburgers and stocks should seek the same thing: lower prices today (and higher prices when they become sellers, of course!).Thanks to this coronavirus crisis, share prices across the board are a lot lower than when the FTSE 100 index peaked in 2020 at 7,674.6 on 17 January. As I write on Friday afternoon, the Footsie is hovering around 5,485, down over 28% in just 10 weeks. Bad news for today’s sellers, but good news for today’s buyers, according to Buffettology.Buy what you knowBuffett also urges investors to “buy what you know”, stick within “your circle of competence” and “never invest in a business you cannot understand.”Hence, when I root around in the stock market’s bargain bin, I often seek out members of the blue-chip FTSE 100, as these companies are well known and analysed extensively by analysts and private investors alike.In troubled times, buy boring businessesIn stressful times, it pays to buy shares in ‘boring’ companies – firms that are easily understood and whose business you could explain in a few words to a smart seven-year-old. Hence, my unexciting pick for today’s cautious and nervous investors is GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). Here are five reasons why I’d buy and hold this stock for the long term:1. GSK’s core business is basicGSK is not a sexy business. Quite simply and in its own words, GSK makes “pharmaceutical medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products”. Thus, during a global health crisis, its revenues and profits should survive and even thrive. Even better, the company’s origins go back all the way to 1873, so it’s endured almost 150 years of global booms and busts.2. GSK is big – very bigWith small businesses worldwide teetering on the brink, it pays to park money in the shares of big businesses. At the current share price of 1,430p, GSK’s market value is almost £72 billion, placing it in the top five by size of FTSE 100 members. Outside of the USA, that’s considered pretty big.3. GSK’s share price is down 23% recentlyGSK’s shares have fallen by almost a quarter (23%) since their 2020 peak of 1,857p. In Buffett’s terms, our burgers are now over £4 cheaper than they were on 24 January, which is a decent discount. On the other hand, they are over £1 more expensive than when they changed hands at 1,328p on 16 March.4. GSK pays a chunky dividendBecause of its high cash dividend, GSK has long been regarded as an ‘income share’, steadily paying out quarterly cash to shareholders for decades. Although GSK’s yearly dividend has been stuck at 80p since 2016, this still equates to a dividend yield of 5.6%. However, this payout is covered only 1.2 times by earnings, so a dividend cut might happen at some point. Then again, even a 20% cut would still leave the shares yielding almost 4.5% a year.5. I’ve owned GSK shares for decadesFinally, I first bought shares in one GSK predecessor in the 1980s, when I was an investment beginner and Glaxo was worth maybe £5 billion at most. Since then, I’ve owned GSK shares almost continuously for the past three decades and have come to know many long-serving employees. In Buffett-speak, I feel that GSK is squarely inside my circle of competence.To sum up, for investors who prefer deep sleep to restless nights, GSK is a share to buy and tuck away. It’s way too big to ‘shoot the lights out’, but it may also be ‘too big to fail’. Meanwhile, that 5.6% dividend yield is an obvious attraction, even if GSK’s share price doesn’t go up for a long while!

World Record drop goal attempt by Jaco

first_imgThursday May 3, 2007 World Record drop goal attempt by Jaco In the 49-0 thrashing of the Springboks by the Wallabies in the 2006 Tri-Nations, flyhalf Jaco van der Westhuizen of the ‘Boks had a shocker of a game.This was one of many screw-ups from that match that got him dropped by Jake White.Back home in South Africa he got absolutely ripped to shreds by the public, especially for that squeaky voice of his when shouting at the Ref that it was a dropkick. A moment he’d rather forget no doubt.Jaco is back in action in the Super 14 however with the Bulls, who’re currently competing for a spot in the semis. He’s having a good season too, mainly coming on from the bench as an impact player, and sporting a rather impressive beard.

A local artist has documented the changing character of the neighbourhood, and the art has been cast into the precast walls. The building design also includes blue glass elements that recall the old Hokkien dialect “Lam Po Lay”, which means blue glass district – the older generation public housing in the area had blue windows. Magnificent old rain trees were retained and incorporated into the landscaping.Awarded a Platinum Greenmark rating – Singapore’s highest and the first for public housing –  the project adopts robust passive design strategies including naturally lit and ventilated lobbies, staircases, access corridors. All apartments are naturally ventilated and due to the open, airy design, a substantial proportion of units have not installed air-conditioning. Photovoltaics on the roof power the common facilities. The design is fully precast and prefabricated, reducing waste and errors on site.

‘Stop it!’: Witness finds Oklahoma officer sitting on top of police chief he’s accused of killing

first_imgKTUL(PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla.) — An Oklahoma police officer accused of killing his police chief was allegedly found sitting on top of the victim, while witnesses said they heard screaming coming from the room, according to an arrest report.Mannford Police Chief Lucky Miller, who held the role for 12 years, was pronounced dead at a Hilton hotel in Pensacola Beach, Florida, on Sunday night, according to the report from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office released Tuesday. Michael Nealey, one of Miller’s officers, was charged with second-degree murder in the case.Officers saw that Miller’s face was beaten and his right eye was completely swollen, the report stated. There were no other injuries to his body.When officers confronted Nealey, who was transported to a local hospital for evaluation, they said they observed that his right hand was swollen and red. Nealey was not able to provide information as to what happened, according to the report.One witness told police that he was responding to a noise complaint and heard grunting noises before knocking several times, according to the report.The witness then entered the room for a welfare check and saw Nealey sitting on Miller, who was lying on the floor, the report stated.He allegedly had to pull Nealey off of Miller, which prompted Nealey to hit his face against the floor and left him with injuries to his nose and lip.Other witnesses said they heard commotion coming from the room, including one man who said he heard someone making a “roaring” noise and a man yelling, “Stop it, Mike” several times, according to the report.Escambia County spokeswoman Sgt. Melony Peterson told the Pensacola News Journal that the two officers were in town for a conference.Mannford police did not respond to ABC News for comment Tuesday.The city’s mayor, Tyler Buttram, said in a statement, “We are heartbroken by the news. Please keep both families in your prayers as we work to move forward.”It was not immediately clear if Nealey had retained legal representation. His mugshot has not yet been released because under Florida law, when law enforcement is involved, the state does not always the release a mugshot, according to a spokesperson with the Escambia sheriff’s office.Miller is survived by his wife and three children.

Oxford COVID-19 vaccine trial has only 50% chance of success as cases fall in the UK

first_imgProfessor Adrian Hill, director of the Jenner Institute at Oxford University, revealed in an interview with the Telegraph that an upcoming trial involving 10,000 volunteers may return “no result” owing to low transmission of the coronavirus in the community.  “We said earlier in the year that there was an 80% chance of developing an effective vaccine by September. But at the moment, there’s a 50% chance that we get no result at all. “We’re in the bizarre position of wanting Covid to stay, at least for a little while. But cases are declining.” The team is one of many planning to conduct further trials in COVID-19 hotspots in other countries. They have already arranged trials in the US, and are currently in talks with other countries where virus transmission rates remain high.  Of the 10,000 people recruited for the second trial, however, Professor Hill expects fewer than 50 people to become infected with the virus due to dwindling community transmission. If fewer than 20 people test positive, he warns the results may be of limited or no use. But as COVID-19 cases continue to fall in the UK, Professor Hill told the Telegraph that the research team are facing a potentially major setback, casting doubt on the feasibility of the September deadline: “It is a race, yes. But it’s not a race against the other guys. It’s a race against the virus disappearing, and against time. This comes days after pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca announced it would be ready to mass-produce the potential new vaccine from September. Meanwhile, the Government reached a deal with the company to pay for up to 100 million doses, with Business Secretary Alok Sharma adding in a press conference that 30 million of these could be available by September, should trials prove successful.  Professor Hill stressed, however, that the University had secured “hardwired” assurances that wealthier countries would not have unfair priority access to the vaccine. This follows a US announcement that it would provide $1.2 billion to AstraZeneca to fund the vaccine’s development.  “The first trial is going fine. We’re still in business, I can tell you that. Oxford University’s COVID-19 vaccine trial has only a 50% chance of success as the virus is disappearing so quickly in Britain, warns a professor co-leading the project.  Various senior ministers in the British Government have also warned that there is “no guarantee” that a vaccine will be found, and that funding research into other drug treatments is equally vital to help combat the impact of the pandemic on the UK population. “But we’re not going to do what others have done – say we’ve got something good, but we’re not showing you yet. That’s just bonkers. You either disclose your results or you don’t.” According to the WHO, Oxford University is one of the 76 global contenders racing to develop a vaccine for COVID-19. The experimental vaccine, known as ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 (or ZD1222), is one of only eight across the world that has started to test on humans, with researchers conducting an initial trial of more than 1000 volunteers in April when the virus was at its peak. The results of this first trial will be released in early June.  Hill was keen to warn that despite vast international investment in the project, funding “doesn’t guarantee the result,” adding that “it could be nothing or could be great or somewhere in between.” In the event that the next stage of trials proves successful, the U.K. “will be first to get access” to the vaccine, Sharma pledged at a government briefing. “The reputational damage to the university would be enormous if we provided the vaccine only for the UK and US, and not for the rest of those countries of the world where it’s very likely that the pandemic will still be raging,” Hill said.
