Image source: The Motley Fool Warren Buffett’s investment strategy is very accessible to investors who are seeking to turn a regular investment in UK shares into a seven-figure portfolio.His focus on buying and holding high-quality companies for the long term can be applied in almost any situation. And, with the stock market crash causing many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares to trade at low prices at the present time, now could be an opportune moment to start following his tips.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…Warren Buffett’s investment strategyWarren Buffett’s investment plans are focused on unearthing bargain stocks and holding them for the long term. Clearly, deciding which stocks are considered bargains is very subjective. However, investors can use metrics such as the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio and dividends yield to compare how one stock stacks up against its peers, as well as versus its historic levels.Furthermore, the ‘Sage of Omaha’ considers the quality of a business relative to its price. This means that he does not necessarily choose the cheapest shares on offer. Instead, he aims to buy the best companies when they trade at a discount to their intrinsic values. In doing so, he obtains a margin of safety that creates greater scope for capital appreciation over the long run.Warren Buffett also takes a long-term view of his investments. Therefore, the short-term movement of the stock market is of little interest to him, other than to use it to purchase bargain shares. Over time, the effects of compounding can have a significant impact on the value of an investment that delivers consistent returns.Investing in UK shares after the stock market crashThe stock market crash provides investors with a wide range of UK shares to buy at low prices. Certainly, some FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks are cheap for good reason. For example, they may have weak financial positions or lack an economic moat. However, many others currently offer wide margins of safety as a result of weak investor sentiment towards the stock market.An investor can produce a surprisingly large portfolio in the long run through a regular investment. For example, obtaining an 8% annual return (which is in line with the stock market’s previous performance) on a £500 monthly investment could lead to a portfolio valued in excess of £1m within 35 years.However, following Warren Buffett’s strategy and buying high-quality companies at low prices today for the long run may lead to more impressive results. This could eventually create a larger portfolio value through using market cycles to an investor’s advantage. Certainly, this plan would be unlikely to lead to high valuations in the short run. But when applied over a sustained period, I think that it could improve an investor’s chances of making a million.

A stock market bubble is by no means a new phenomenon. Looking back at the track record of global equity markets shows there’s always been a cycle that includes periods of growth and periods of decline.The recent stock market rally could cause investors to consider whether a crash is now imminent. However, such events can be very difficult to predict.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…As such, a strategy that aims to buy undervalued shares for the long run when they’re available could be a logical approach. It may allow for strong growth in the long run. It may also allow for some relative protection from a potential market crash.Predicting if a stock market bubble will burstDespite the recent stock market rally, identifying a stock market bubble that’s ready to bust can be a challenging task. After all, there appear to be some companies that continue to trade at low prices even after the recent recovery.For example, sectors such as financial services, retail and resources could contain companies that have low valuations as a result of weak investor sentiment and an uncertain economic outlook. This could mean there are still buying opportunities on offer.Furthermore, the stock market’s performance is very difficult to accurately predict. Certainly, it has a long track record of delivering high single-digit annual total returns. However, those returns are very unlikely to be linear.They include periods of growth and decline that themselves are dependent on a wide spectrum of factors that are tough to forecast on a consistent basis. This could mean a stock market bubble increases in size, or bursts, in future.A logical approach after a stock market rallyGiven the difficulties in predicting whether a stock market bubble will burst or not, it may be prudent to instead focus on purchasing undervalued shares. They may offer a combination of low prices and high-quality fundamentals. Such as strong balance sheets and resilient cash flow.Not only may they be less impacted by a stock market crash because they are priced at low levels, they could outperform their sector peers in a bull market or bear market.For example, a high-quality business with a wide economic moat may have more resilient sales in a downturn. Equally, it may be able to generate higher margins and profit growth that’s reflected in a faster-rising share price during a period of stock market gains.A long-term viewClearly, no company is guaranteed to escape the bursting of a stock market bubble. Falling share prices can lead to deteriorating investor sentiment that pulls down even the most attractive stocks.However, stronger businesses purchased at appealing prices can be a sound means of generating impressive total returns. When held for the long run, they could offer relatively strong performance compared to sector peers and the wider stock market.

On their respective 2011 tax returns, the Romneys reported giving 29.4% to charity and the Obamas 21.8%. For a report on each one’s charitable giving over a longer term, see, for example, Glenn Kessler’s article in the February 15, 2012 Washington Post, “Obama’s Gifts to Charity: Just 1 percent?”. Before approving or chastising either one, it’s important to get as close to the facts as we can. Ron Duckworth says: September 27, 2012 at 5:55 pm Wow, personal income has grown 900% over the last 20 years? That’s a 45% annual growth rate.

Rector Shreveport, LA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Tom Rightmyer says: September 28, 2012 at 8:32 pm In the 17th and 18th century in Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina the colonial legislatures authorized church vestries to levy a per person tax on all white adult males and all slaves of working age (13+). The tax was about 30 pounds of tobacco when a field hand could make between 1000 and 1500 pounds of tobacco. The church tax amounted to between two and three per cent of income. Clergy in Virginia were paid 16.000 pounds of tobacco; the amount varied in pther colonies. Vestries also used this tax money to build churches and parsonages and to provide for the poor of the parish. My conclusion is that the present level of giving is not very different from the 18th century level. Tom Rightmyer, Asheville, NC [email protected] [Religion News Service] Nothing will get better in our troubled and divided nation until we take to heart three lessons about what it means to be a decent person.First, give back to God.In researching trends in giving, I was shocked to discover that more than 50 percent of those who attend Episcopal congregations give nothing at all — not a dime — to their churches. Giving has plummeted 50 percent over the past 20 years, even as personal income has soared 900 percent.Across mainline Protestant traditions, giving has sagged to 2 percent of household income — one-fifth of the biblical tithe. Even conservative traditions that teach the tithe give at only the 3 percent level, and Roman Catholics give 1.5 percent of income.As wealth has soared, especially for the few, gratitude has been replaced by arrogance. We earned it, say the lucky, and we deserve to keep it. Trouble is, that wealth would vanish were it not for bailouts, government protections, tax breaks, and a complex infrastructure of education, technology, transportation and laws that they feel entitled to exploit but not obligated to support.It’s time we learned that what we have came from God. The fortunate have a fundamental obligation to give back to God. As long as we cling to wealth as if Mammon were God, we will remain shallow and self-serving — and thus self-defeating.Second, help the unfortunate.The myth of rugged individualism is nonsense. Any society worth perpetuating learns charity, not hoarding. It is our God-given nature to help the child in danger, the elderly person who falls, the victim of assault. The spectacle of a rich politician telling his rich friends that the unfortunate are lazy moochers violates every teaching of faith and history. It is an assault on humanity itself.A decent society’s moral foundation rests on sharing, not on building bigger barns. This is what Christianity teaches — what Jesus called caring for the “least of these.” It is what Judaism teaches — giving from the harvest to benefit widows and orphans. If I understand correctly, caring for the weak is a core teaching of Islam.It couldn’t be more basic. Haves must care for have-nots. The fortunate must care for the unfortunate. The healthy care for the sick, the strong care for the weak. This isn’t some radical concept designed to separate rugged individualists from their hard-earned wealth. It is a basic tenet of civilization.Third, tell the truth.No matter how fashionable and politically expedient it may be, dishonesty undermines society. We cannot possibly enact and enforce enough laws to protect people from cheats, thieves, liars and predators.For society to endure, citizens must embrace a basic level of honesty. Otherwise, children cannot play safely outside their doors, neighbors cannot borrow tools, shoppers cannot trust products, patients cannot trust physicians and pharmaceuticals, contracts mean nothing, promises mean nothing, marital vows mean nothing, friendships mean nothing.Big lies lead to demagoguery and oppression. Medium-sized lies lead to shattered trust and confidence. Small lies eviscerate families.When politicians lie with reckless abandon, when business leaders treat dishonesty as slick strategy, they guarantee not only their own downfall but the collapse of the society that they claim to lead.As a lawyer named Joseph Welch told a demagogue named Joe McCarthy at a low point in American history, if we have no “decency,” all we have left is “cruelty” and “recklessness.”— Tom Ehrich is a writer, church consultant and Episcopal priest based in New York.

Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Doug Desper says: September 26, 2012 at 5:32 pm I really appreciated most of this article until the villainization of the wealthy was interjected. Would everybody who feels guilty for taking advantage of a legal tax break please just donate it to the government?

Mr. Erlich has hit the nail on the head above. Not surprisingly, for many of us, it smarts. A number of the early church fathers, like Islam today, did not see charity as an act of magnanimous condescension as it so often practiced today, but rather as an obligation. One of the fathers, whose name I can no longer remember, went so far as to say charity was not so much an act of magnanimity as simply returning to the poor what was already theirs.Jesus himself points us in this direction. When the disciples remind Jesus that the assembled people are hungry and suggests he send them home so they can find food, he responds, “You feed them.” So, the hungry are fed, a mark of the Kingdom of G-d. If G-d sees the hungry as blessed and Jesus sees his followers as obligated to feed them, what does it say about a world of hungry people in which Jesus’ well fed followers simply look on ?

However, the notion that the wealthy are so because of bailouts, etc. is nonsense. All the infrastructure was built with tax money collected disproportionately (under our progressive tax code) from the wealthy.Research has discovered that 80% of millionaires did not inherit any money. They made it themselves! Most of those millionaires started small businesses and made them grow by their hard work.Everyone, not just the “fortunate” should follow the teachings of Jesus and love their neighbor. It does not take much searching to find who gives the most to local charities. As would be expected, most of the donations come from the fortunate.The rich politician you chastise for his comments about the 47% who do not pay income tax is known to habitually give ~20% of his annual income to charity. His opponent typically gives in the low single digits. Per the theme of the article, which one is doing what you desire and which one should you chastise?Government programs involve the involuntary taking of money from one person and giving it to another. There is no morality in that. It is only in voluntary giving on an individual basis that giving to God and helping the unfortunate occurs morally.

September 28, 2012 at 4:45 pm Your premise is correct and I agree with your article. The dreaded however is that it’s not about money; it’s about the people in the church, the religious and the lay. I’m the dinosaur in the room. At the age of 68, I’ve belonged to 4 parishes and worked part-time for a diocese and I’m tired of the enabling.I help feed starving children, supply mosquito netting, help build water systems. Locally, I work with community organizations and give my money to them to help support where we live. I moved my membership back to a church that requires me to drive 80 miles one way on Sunday mornings. There is life in that church and old friends I’ve known for years but I’ve slipped through the cracks there too. They don’t know why I get up there early or drive that far just to go to church. I don’t pledge there anymore because I feed the hungry and support the less fortunate around me and help develope educational events for the children in this area. These are not great things and they aren’t hard to do and they bring comfort and fun to me and them.Pledging to my church just makes me feel guilty because it never seems enough and, except for a food pantry, I’m not sure what they do with any money they receive to help people. No one in my church remembers I’m alive unless I show up on Sundays or they need help with selling chili supper tickets. My point isn’t that hard to get. The first bishop I remember as a child used to say, “We are called to be fishers of men, not keepers of the acquarium.” The other slogan that keeps going through my head is, “To whom much is given, much is required,” and I don’t think that means which tax bracket you fall into. September 28, 2012 at 5:01 pm In the middle 80’s, I published for the Executive Council’s and Presiding Bishop’s Office of Stewardship and Development the fact that the Episcopal Church had grown to and attained the highest giving of the major denominations because of great authentic financial/giving by lay and clergy leadership . (We were the top givers with per unit giving and Venture in Mission thirty years ago.) So the latest data is not a decline but a fall off the cliff. Our leadership at every level has abdicated its witness to and implementation of financial/giving/ spiritual leadership. What we hear now is “gimme” and spiritualized/dualistic nonsense about giving; I see no desire for authentic and powerful witness to the true blessings of giving as Tom is in part indicating. It seems that we have returned to the bottom levels of giving we had climbed up from in the 60’s to late 80’s.

News Help by sharing this information PeruAmericas RSF_en to go further Organisation Receive email alerts Follow the news on Peru Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites April 12, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Fifty attacks and threats against the media so far this year China’s diplomats must stop attacking media over coronavirus reporting Reporters Without Borders called today on the Peruvian government to formally monitor attacks on press freedom. At least 50 attacks and threats against the country’s media have been made so far this year, more than half of them last month. Reporters Without Borders called today on the Peruvian government to monitor soaring violence against the media and said the country had gained one of the worst press freedom records in the Americas so far this year, with at least 50 attacks and threats (see release of 22 February).“More than half of them, inlcuding one murder, occurred last month and Peru seems to be joining Colombia and Mexico as one of the countries most dangerous for journalists to work in,” it said. “The involvement of local officials often slows down legal action against the attackers. We call for this alarming situation to be closely and formally watched by the authorities.”Opposition from coca farmers accounts for many of the attacks, which have been recorded by Peruvian fress freedom organisations.Roberto Gálvez, of Inforegión news agency, and cameraman Nicolás Álvarez were threatened on 7 March by Diógenes Niño, a coca farmers (cocaleros) leader in Huánuco who also threatened freelance journalist Miguel Campos and the correspondent of the daily paper Correo, Sergio Madueño. He criticised their reporting of a cocalero protest movement. Julio Aguirre Domínguez, of Radio Concierto, was physically attacked on 10 March by cocaleros in the northwestern town of Tocache who had been protesting for two days against destruction of their crop and did not like his reporting. His camera was damaged by a stone thrown by the protesters and a video film destroyed. Peter Donato, of Radio Emanuelle, was hit in the face and on the legs the next day by the same demonstrators, who seized his dictaphone and camera.Other journalists in Tocache said on 27 March they had received many death threats since 16 March for similar reasons. Two Radio Emanuelle presenters, Daniel Grández and Abel Gonzáles were “warned” on their mobile phones for criticising the violence of the cocalero protests. The station’s owner, José Reátegui, was told on 23 March to shut down Gonzáles’ programme or risk being killed. Grández was told a few days later of plans to murder him along with González, José Saldaña (Radio Libertad), Wagner Ruiz (Radio San Juan) and Ketty Vela Ruiz (Radio Marginal), all of them considered “enemies of the cocaleros.”Antonio Vásquez and Marcos Sifuentes, of the TV station Frecuencia latina, were recording a speech by national water programme chief Carlos Arana in Lima on 9 March when activists of the ruling APRA party physically attacked them. They took Vásquez to a party office, interrogated him for half an hour and demanded his recordings. Sifuentes managed to film the attack with a hidden camera but six men chased and beat him as he left the meeting. He managed to escape with the help of a Frecuencia latina driver.Edwin Gómez, of the daily La Calle and Radio Wari, was hit at a public meeting in Ayacucho on 10 March by Yuri Revollar, secretary-general of a local teachers union, who destroyed his camera when he tried to take a picture of him.Michael Ortiz Munares, a local official in the southern town of Andahuaylas, urged people on 22 March to destroy the transmitter of Radio Panorama and run three of the station’s journalists out of town – Ronald Ripa, Mario Espinoza and Niño Gonzáles – after they aired the opinions of listeners about pay increases for local politicians and officials. Ripa was threatened by mayor Manuel Molina Quintana at a press conference on 27 March. Two men on a motorbike threw a teargas grenade at the house of journalist Hermes Rivera in the northeastern town of Cajaruro on 22 March. He had received threatening text-messages since 18 March warning him to stop investigating the murder of journalist Miguel Pérez Julca, of Radio Éxitos, in Jaén on 16 March (press release of 10 April).

The international community, especially UN secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon’s special envoy, Ibrahim Gambari, who is due to visit Burma shortly, need to pay close attention to what is going on.” Aged 28, Nay Phone Latt was arrested on 29 January 2008 with several members of the opposition National League for Democracy, who were released a few hours later. He received a combined jail sentence of 20 years and six months on 10 November from a special court inside Insein prison that was headed by judge Daw Soe Nyaam. The sentence consisted of two years for violating article 505 (b) of the Criminal Code (which punishes defamation of the state), three years and six months for violating article 32 (b) of the Video Act and 15 years for violating article 33 (a) of the Electronic Act. He is suffering from eye problems but has not been allowed to see a doctor. He is due for release in 2028. Zarganar, who kept a blog that was widely read by Burmese Internet users both in Burma and abroad, was arrested on 5 June 2008 for writing in his blog about the widespread criticism of the government’s relief efforts after the country was devastated by a cyclone the previous month. Sentenced to 45 years in prison under the Electronic Act by the Insein prison court on 21 November 2008, he was given an additional 14-year jail sentence for unspecified “offences” six days later. He is due to be released in 2067. Nay Phone Latt and Zarganar were awarded a special press freedom prize by Reporters Without Borders on 4 December.Sign the petition Organisation May 31, 2021 Find out more News RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture May 12, 2021 Find out more RSF_en May 26, 2021 Find out more
