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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Kevin Godbold | Wednesday, 19th August, 2020 Just when we thought the price of gold was in retreat, it’s turned around to scream back up again! Even Warren Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, has bought a few shares in a gold mining company. Although it’s unclear whether the great investor himself is behind the deal. Indeed, by Buffett’s standards, the position is small. So it seems more likely to be one of his investment manager’s stock ideas.Meanwhile, the price of gold tends to strengthen in uncertain economic times. I even heard an argument recently that all the quantitative easing (money printing) going on around the world is causing currencies to devalue against gold. Hence the rising price of the shiny stuff.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…Why I’d choose the best UK shares instead of goldHowever, Buffett’s long-held stance on gold is that it doesn’t do anything, isn’t used for much, and doesn’t create value. Unlike the businesses behind shares on the stock market. They can do plenty, provide useful products and services, and create value by growing their earnings and assets. Indeed, shares have earned a reputation as the best-performing asset class over the long term.And I reckon you have a decent chance to get rich and retire early with the best UK shares. Indeed, if you research and find a few sensibly-priced shares backed by high-quality businesses you can compound your returns. And the process of compounding is key to building wealth on the stock market.But compounding only works well if you don’t suffer big losses. It’s no good having one share in your portfolio that doubles while another hands you a 97% loss. You could spend years going nowhere like that. One of the best ways of avoiding that trap is to ignore shares backed by weak businesses and focus on the quality of the underlying operation.Watching the downsideI’d avoid the shares of speculative businesses altogether. You can usually identify them by their absence of profits and sometimes revenues. Although they often come with an enticing ‘story’ and seem to be full of potential. Indeed, a lucky few may be capable of delivering shareholders stunning returns over time. But many more will end up supplying big shareholder losses.And I’d be cautious about investing in businesses with cyclical operations. Such investments can be tricky to time because we never know for sure where we are in the economic or trading cycle. Meanwhile, some cyclicals are big well-known names, which can be confusing because they ‘sound’ safe. I’m thinking of stocks such as Lloyds Banking Group, Taylor Wimpey, easyJet, Whitbread and many others. If your timing is off with cyclicals like these, you could wait years just to return to breakeven in your portfolio.However, there are many decent, high-quality enterprises around that will make good vehicles for compounding wealth in the years ahead. UK shares I’d add to my watchlist include firms such as Diageo, Unilever, PZ Cussons, Premier Foods, Sage, AG Barr, GlaxoSmithKline, Nichols, Smith & Nephew and others.Why not use those ideas as a jumping-off point for your own research and analysis?  I’m sure you’ll find more.

Mayor urges more Limerick businesses to look at ReStart Grant

first_imgBusinessNewsMayor urges more Limerick businesses to look at ReStart GrantBy Cian Reinhardt – July 14, 2020 244 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Linkedin Government announces phased easing of public health restrictions The Mayor noted as a small business owner himself he understood “the worry and confusion brought about by Covid-19”.“Some futures are uncertain and it is difficult to live with the ‘not knowing’,” he said, but noted the ReStart Grant “will help allay some of the costs associated with re-opening or keeping a business operational and re-connecting with employees and customers”.“The grant could be used to defray ongoing fixed costs, e.g. utilities, insurance, refurbishment or for measures to ensure employee and customer safety,” said Mayor Collins.The grant is available to businesses with a turnover of less than €5m and employing 50 people or fewer, which were closed or impacted by at least a 25 per cent reduction in turnover out to 30 June 2020.The business must have suffered a projected 25 per cent + loss in revenue from April 1 to June 30, 2020, and must commit to remain open or to reopen if it was closed.The business must also declare the intention to retain employees that are benefitting from the Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS).The government has indicated that spot checks may be carried out so is advising businesses to retain supporting documentation to verify any declaration.Sean Coughlan, Deputy Chief Executive and Head of Finance with Limerick City and County Council said, “We want as many businesses as possible to re-open and thrive post-Covid-19 restrictions, and this grant will help firms on the road to doing this. ReStart is one of a suite of measures being offered by Limerick City and County Council and Local Enterprise Office Limerick to support businesses.”Mr Coughlan said their records show only “around third of all businesses in the micro and small business categories” have applied for the ReStart Grant and he would “encourage the rest to log on to limerick.ie/business and fill out the application form”.To apply for the ReStart Grant Scheme, click here.For information about other schemes to support businesses, check out limerick.ie/business. With Limerick City and County Council estimating that only 30 per cent of the businesses eligible for the ReStart Grant have actually applied, Mayor of Limerick City and County, Cllr Michael Collins is urging more businesses to apply.

No chartered icing, but the new institute’s cake still smells good

first_imgNo chartered icing, but the new institute’s cake still smells goodOn 1 Mar 2000 in Personnel Today So, the IPD has achieve its aim of being granted chartered status by the Privy Council. From 1 July, it will become the CIPD and members will be able to bask in a reverence usually reserved for chartered accountants and surveyors. Members will be able to order new business cards boasting MCIPD instead of plain old MIPD, and they will have the satisfaction of knowing that – in the words of the institute – it is a testament to their high standards, professionalism, and commitment to continuing professional development.The institute also believes “having chartered status will help attract even more professionals into membership. This in turn will help to increase the range of services available to members”. But some in the industry would cast doubt on the validity of the first statement and the desirability of the second.The last few years have witnessed rumblings of discontent from the training and development community. Some feel the IPD views them as second class HR citizens and many have questioned the reluctance of the IPD’s membership structure to recognise specialists on a par with generalists.So it is not surprising someone has finally decided to take action. The fledgling Institute of Training and Occupational Learning (ITOL) was launched a few weeks ago from a grass-roots base consisting of a couple of dozen disenchanted professionals.The monolithic IPD is probably not shaking in its boots at this, but, as ITOL director Jeff Brooks outlines on page 9, the new body is trying to address many of the areas of dissent that T&D professionals have voiced about the IPD. For example, ITOL’s membership criteria aim to be rigorous while still being flexible enough to admit specialists. It is also proposing to establish new qualifications reminiscent of those of the old Institute of Training and Development. ITOL is also undertaking not to set itself up in competition with its own members by running commercial training courses. Interesting. Comments are closed.

Illicioxylon, an element of Gondwanan polar forests? Late Cretaceous and early Tertiary woods of Antarctica

first_imgThe Late Cretaceous and early Tertiary sediments from the northern Peninsula region of Antarctica yield a rich assemblage of fossil wood with well preserved anatomy. Wood specimens of a previously recognized morphotype are described. The woods are characterized by diffuse porous wood, mainly solitary vessels with long scalariform perforation plates, scalariform and opposite vessel-ray pitting, generally uniseriate and biseriate heterogeneous rays, and tracheids with obvious uniseriate, circulate, bordered pits. These fossil specimens show greatest anatomical similarity to the organ genus Illicioxylon Gottwald and extant members of the Illiciaceae. The occurrence of illiciaceous-like wood in Gondwana suggests that the distribution of this family may have been more widespread in the geological past and that a relatively warm temperate climate prevailed over the northern Peninsula region of Antarctica during the Late Cretaceous and early Cenozoic.last_img read more

Sea ice as a source of sea salt aerosol to Greenland ice cores: a model-based study

first_imgGrowing evidence suggests that the sea ice surface is an important source of sea salt aerosol and this has significant implications for polar climate and atmospheric chemistry. It also offers the opportunity to use ice core sea salt records as proxies for past sea ice extent. To explore this possibility in the Arctic region, we use a chemical transport model to track the emission, transport and deposition of sea salt from both the open ocean and the sea ice, allowing us to assess the relative importance of each. Our results confirm the importance of sea ice sea salt (SISS) to the winter Arctic aerosol burden. For the first time, we explicitly simulate the sea salt concentrations of Greenland snow and find they match high resolution Greenland ice core records to within a factor of two. Our simulations suggest that SISS contributes to the winter maxima in sea salt characteristic of ice cores across Greenland. A north-south gradient in the contribution of SISS relative to open ocean sea salt (OOSS) exists across Greenland, with 50 % of sea salt being SISS at northern sites such as NEEM, while only 10 % of sea salt is SISS at southern locations such as ACT10C. Our model shows some skill at reproducing the inter-annual variability in sea salt concentrations for 1991–1999 AD, particularly at Summit where up to 62 % of the variability is explained. Future work will involve constraining what is driving this inter-annual variability and operating the model under different paleoclimatic conditions.last_img read more
