For the stock market, April was one of the best months on record since 2009. But don’t get over-optimistic. The last day of the month saw a dramatic rise in volatility and a FTSE 100 dip due to US-China tensions. So how do you continue to build your portfolio and hopefully rich? By following some simple steps.The best ways of getting rich, I feel, include buying undervalued companies with a great competitive advantage and buying them for the long term. I’d also like to add some additional tips for this bear market. 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…Choose the ‘right’ shares as the FTSE 100 crashesI think choosing shares with wealth-enhancing potential includes buying companies that trade at low multiples — that is, low price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios. Nowadays, for example, airlines are historically cheap. But even though it’s possible that the government could bail out the largest industry players, it might take them plenty of time to return to profitability.This seems to be the case with easyJet. Despite being one of the largest FTSE 100 airlines, it’s struggling with liquidity issues. The Treasury and the Bank of England agreed to provide the company with a £600m loan but easyJet’s largest shareholder still thinks it could run out of liquidity by year-end. The point I’m making is that buying such a company’s shares presents a substantial risk, but could turn out to be hugely profitable if the situation gets materially better. Are there any ‘safer’ options for conservative investors? Yes. Such options would include non-cyclical companies with sound balance sheets and excellent credit ratings. Such shares are still available at a discount due to the coronavirus pandemic. Diversification to avoid lossesDiversification is probably one of the most important investment principles. It’s true that individual shares should be chosen carefully, but you never know what might happen to one share in one sector. For example, no one expected back in January, when the stock market reached its historic high, that oil prices would turn negative. Many investors and analysts expected a global economic recovery. As a result, they were reasonably optimistic about oil prices. Needless to say that these expectations haven’t been met. So over-exposure to oil shares would have hurt the value of your portfolio. Instead, I’d choose a broad spread of companies that trade at a P/E ratio of below 20 or the FTSE 100 average P/E, and have good balance sheets. I’d spread my investments among 20-30 firms so losses in one area can be balanced by better performances in others.Pound-cost averaging to get richWe at The Motley Fool strongly encourage our readers to take advantage of stock market crashes. As time shows, crises come and go. The lockdown of the world economy will end. On the other hand, no one knows exactly when the FTSE 100 will reach its bottom.Even though many countries are starting to open up, tensions remain. For instance, President Trump is blaming China for originating the virus. This situation could add to fears of a prolonged trade war between the US and China and therefore high volatility.So what should investors do? There’s a good solution to share price volatility. It’s the pound-cost averaging method. This involves drip-feeding a small amount of money into share regularly. It avoids spending all your money at a peak and smooths out volatility.

Nota: Tras casi cuatro años de conversaciones, el pasado jueves 23 de junio se firmó en La Habana un acuerdo sobre los puntos del Cese al Fuego y de Hostilidades Bilateral y Definitivo, Dejación de las Armas y Garantías de Seguridad entre las FARC-EP y el gobierno colombiano. Se espera que en pocos meses se consolide y firme el acuerdo final sobre los seis puntos base discutidos en la Mesa de Conversaciones.Sin embargo, ya esta ceremonia del jueves llenó de esperanza a un pueblo que desde los años cuarenta ha vivido en la más absoluta violencia producto de una política estatal dirigida a reprimir las ansias de libertad y justicia de las grandes masas excluidas. Esta Colombia desangrada entra ahora en una etapa muy compleja donde coexisten las fuerzas populares, las revolucionarias, paramilitares y derecha, el Estado y los representantes de intereses transnacionales con sus capacidades militares principalmente EUA (que posee 7 bases militares en ese país), la Unión Europea e Israel.La importancia internacional de este acuerdo quedó reflejada en la participación de jefes y jefas de gobierno de casi una decena de países, incluyendo al presidente Nicolás Maduro de Venezuela y Raúl Castro de Cuba (país anfitrión de las Conversaciones), y representantes de la ONU, la CELAC, la CEPAL y la Unión Europea.A continuación están fragmentos del comunicado del Secretariado de las FARC-EP sobre el acuerdo:‘Que éste sea el último día de la guerra’“En el año de 1964, en medio del fragor de la desigual lucha armada, la asamblea de los guerrilleros de Marquetalia produjo su programa agrario, en cuya parte introductoria dejó sentada la siguiente declaración que ahora recordamos: Nosotros somos revolucionarios que luchamos por un cambio de régimen. Pero queríamos y luchábamos por ese cambio usando la vía menos dolorosa para nuestro pueblo: la vía pacífica, la vía democrática de masas. Esa vía nos fue cerrada violentamente con el pretexto fascista oficial de combatir supuestas “Repúblicas Independientes”, y como somos revolucionarios que de una u otra manera jugaremos el papel histórico que nos corresponde, nos tocó buscar la otra vía: la vía revolucionaria armada para la lucha por el poder”.“Hoy, 52 años después, los guerrilleros de las FARC-EP estamos sellando con el gobierno de Juan Manuel Santos un cese al fuego y de hostilidades bilateral y definitivo, un acuerdo sobre garantías de seguridad y combate al paramilitarismo y otro sobre dejación de armas, que nos dejan a las puertas de concretar en un plazo relativamente breve el Acuerdo Final, que nos permitirá por fin retornar al ejercicio político legal mediante las vía pacífica y democrática.“… Los 48 campesinos marquetalianos se convirtieron con las décadas en miles de mujeres y hombres alzados en armas que llegaron a poner en serios aprietos al Estado colombiano, pero que simultáneamente nunca dejaron de hablar de un acuerdo de paz por la vía de las conversaciones civilizadas. Fueron varios y dolorosamente frustrados los intentos por conseguirlo. Pero siguieron intentándolo una y otra vez, y hoy vemos los frutos de su persistencia.“Porque si de algo dan fe los Presidentes de los países acompañantes y garantes hoy aquí presentes, así como el conjunto de las altas personalidades internacionales inmersas en el proceso de paz en curso y que nos acompañan aquí, lo que está a punto de sellarse no es una capitulación de la insurgencia, como querían algunos obtusos, sino el producto de un diálogo serio entre dos fuerzas que se enfrentaron por más de medio siglo, sin que ninguna pudiera derrotar a la otra.“…. Estamos muy cerca de la firma del Acuerdo Final que pondrá fin al conflicto e iniciará la construcción de una paz estable y duradera. Desde un principio sostuvimos que la firma de este acuerdo es la mejor oportunidad que tendrá nuestro país para enrumbarse hacia la justicia social y el progreso, sobre la base de que serán abiertas las compuertas de la democracia verdadera, para que los movimientos sociales y políticos de oposición gocen de plenas garantías.“…. Hay acuerdos sellados sobre esa materia y están próximos a definirse algunos puntos pendientes. Como también en cuestión de Reforma Rural Integral y cultivos de uso ilícito.“…. No será todo color de rosa, y seguramente habrá que luchar porque se cumpla integralmente lo firmado.“…El Acuerdo Final será la llave para dar vuelta a esa cerradura, pero requerirá de la organización y movilización constante de la gente por su cumplimiento.“… El acuerdo sobre garantías de seguridad y combate al paramilitarismo tiene que ser una realidad en los hechos, so pena de conducir el resultado final del proceso al fracaso histórico. Duele profundamente y resulta ya intolerable que a estas alturas tales estructuras sigan asesinando con plena libertad.“… También se ha llegado al acuerdo sobre Dejación de Armas, ………. Claro que las FARC haremos política, si esa es nuestra razón de ser, pero por medios legales y pacíficos, con los mismos derechos y garantías de los demás partidos.“El Estado colombiano tendrá que hacer efectivo que a ningún colombiano se lo perseguirá por razón de sus ideas o prácticas políticas, que la perversa costumbre de incluir en los órdenes de batalla de las fuerzas armadas los nombres de los dirigentes de movimientos sociales y políticos de oposición, tendrá que desaparecer definitivamente del suelo patrio. Que una vez firmado el acuerdo final desaparecerán el dispositivo militar de guerra y su anticuada doctrina de seguridad.“…..Necesitamos que en nuestro país se produzca efectivamente una definitiva reconciliación. Basta ya de la violencia y los delirios por ella. Ella requiere una paciente e intensa labor de difusión, educación y concientización de lo pactado en La Habana, para que la gente de Colombia quede clara de su valioso y positivo contenido. Y para que sepa qué puede y debe reclamar del Estado. Para que se una y organice por conseguirlo. Sólo así haremos una Nueva Colombia.“… Sabemos que nada se conseguirá fácil o rápidamente. Entendemos que los principales beneficiarios de nuestro esfuerzo serán las generaciones futuras. Por eso extendemos nuestra mano a la juventud. Ella es la llamada a construir el nuevo país y por tanto la más llamada a la defensa de la paz y la reconciliación, a la promoción de un nuevo tipo de actividad política, a la consolidación de la civilidad y la más amplia democracia.“Las FARC siempre hemos sido optimistas. Aún en los momentos más difíciles siempre creímos que la paz era posible. …. Confiamos en celebrar en un plazo prudencial otro acto solemne, la firma del Acuerdo Final. Que éste sea el último día de la guerra”.El texto completo se puede leer en www.pazfarc-ep.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

NOTES: Winning owner/breeder Nick Alexander is from Los Angeles. NICK ALEXANDER, OWNER OF ENOLA GRAY, WINNER: “This may have been her best race. It was the one I was most nervous about. We had Desert Steel on the other side of us. We had her pinned down the last two times and this time, she was on the outside of us. There was also a lot more speed in there today than in the last few races. So I was nervous, but she’s getting better.“I think Tyler knows that what he does best is to just barely put any pressure on the reins. He’s pretty much loose reining her now. She can go so fast early and not get tired. If you saw her in the Winner’s Circle, she wasn’t blowing real hard. She has such a light touch on the ground. It’s not taking a lot out of her. I’m not an expert but she’s the damndest horse I’ve ever had.Alexander was asked if he feels Enola Gray is living up to the high expectations he and others had for her sire, Grazen: “Mike Mitchell, Phil and I were Grazen’s biggest fans. That was the worst day of my life when he broke down here. I’m really excited that he’s got a huge book this year. People are finally starting to pay attention. His numbers keep getting better.“He had that same speed that could go two turns. If they went with him, they got tired. If they waited for him to get tired, he didn’t. I can remember Garrett Gomez telling me, ‘this horse has another gear if I need it, but so far I haven’t needed it.’ He never was really laid down hard. He’s a cool stallion. He’s in my backyard six to eight months of the year and he’s getting them in foal 98 percent of the time.” JOCKEY QUOTES TYLER BAZE, ENOLA GRAY, WINNER: “This filly, she loves the hill. She loves the grass. She was just out there having fun. It takes her a few strides to get going but once she does, it’s like riding on a cloud. “This filly is unbelievable. I can’t wait until next time.”TRAINER QUOTES PHIL D’AMATO, TRAINER OF ENOLA GRAY, WINNER: “I’m dying to run her a mile on grass. The way she galloped out today, Tyler couldn’t hardly pull her up. If she comes out of this good, we’ll look at the Royal Heroine (Grade II, one mile turf on April 8).” -30-
Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC UPLB exempted from SEA Games class suspension Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Teenager upsets Nadal at Montreal Masters LATEST STORIES Kyrie Irving #2 of the Cleveland Cavaliers (Jason Miller/Getty Images/AFP)NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley is not one to hold his tongue regarding issues in today’s NBA and he recently chimed in on Kyrie Irving’s supposed request to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers.READ: Cavs star Kyrie Irving reportedly requests tradeADVERTISEMENT View comments MOST READ LOOK: Venues for 2019 SEA Games Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief The outspoken player-turned-analyst shared how baffled he was by the notion of Irving’s displeasure playing second fiddle to teammate LeBron James.“You want to be on a good team. You want to play with other great players. This notion where you want to be the man, I just think is so stupid,” he said during an interview on NBA TV, as relayed by Bleacher Report.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“If I got a chance to play with another great player, I want to do that. The objective is to win,” he said.The 1993 NBA MVP also recalled Irving’s early years with the Cavaliers while LeBron was still playing for the Miami Heat. “When he was on a bad team and he was the man, I guarantee you that wasn’t a lot of fun for him,” he explained. “And now you want to leave the best player in the world. And listen, I hear all of this stuff about how LeBron casts a big shadow. He should cast a big shadow.”Barkley, meanwhile, certainly knows a thing or two about accepting a lesser role, as he joined fellow legends Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler at the twilight of his career in the 1996-1997 season.Although Barkley acknowledges that at 25 Irving is still in his prime with his best days ahead of him, he further explained why winning a championship remains the most important thing.“You wanna share the glory. You wanna win. Right now, there’s only two, three, maybe four legitimate teams in the NBA,” he concluded. “If you’re not on one of those four or five teams, you’re really just wasting your time for seven months. So I don’t understand why you wouldn’t want to play with LeBron. Listen, I wanna play with LeBron now!” Khristian Ibarrola /raRELATED STORY:ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:48NBA: Kawhi, George seek more for Clippers than beating Lakers01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding Was LeBron James’ tweet a shot at teammate Kyrie Irving?

TORONTO – Foreign buyers might make up a small sliver of Canada’s biggest real estate markets, but homebuyers in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal still believe they are heavily influencing housing activity.A study from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation released Wednesday found that 68 per cent of Vancouver respondents, 48 per cent of Toronto respondents and 42 per cent of Montreal respondents believe foreign buyers are having “a lot of influence” on their markets and are driving up home prices.The insights shared by 2,159 respondents in the three cities between September and mid-October is in stark contrast with recent data from Statistics Canada showing foreign buyers only own 4.8 per cent of Vancouver properties and 3.4 per cent of homes in Toronto.“What is striking is the significant gap between perceptions of the public and available data, so much so that the perception of non-resident ownership takes centre stage when discussing the drivers of price growth,” said CMHC’s report.The Crown corporation said it couldn’t quantify how big an impact perceptions around foreign buyers were having on the markets, but it found that in Vancouver the influence of foreign investors is perceived to be stronger than supply constraints and demand.However, in Toronto, it said that influence is in line with market forces.Beyond foreign buyers, CMHC also looked at other factors affecting homebuyers’ motivations, including bidding wars.It found that 55 per cent of Toronto and Vancouver respondents said they had experienced a bidding war, compared with 17 per cent in Montreal.CMHC said the bidding wars most frequently cropped up around apartment condominiums, where prices are lower than the median purchase price for all properties.The study also revealed that 48 per cent of buyers in Vancouver and Toronto spent more than they budgeted on their home, but only 24 per cent of Montreal buyers exceeded their planned total.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version misstated the number of survey respondents.
