FTSE investors: Can the gold price reach a new record high in July?

first_imgFTSE investors: Can the gold price reach a new record high in July? Tezcan Gecgil, PhD | Sunday, 28th June, 2020 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Gold recently hit a high for 2020. The spot price is up over 13% year-to-date, hovering at $1,765 per ounce. In late June it went over $1,775 to see its highest level in almost a decade. Our readers may remember that it had hit an all-time record of $1,900 in September 2011.The performance of FTSE shares is usually negatively correlated to gold, which tends to do well when there is fear in equity markets. As we start the second half of the year, do you also think there is a case to be made for gold? Then there are several ways you can include the shiny metal in your portfolio.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…Catalysts behind the price of goldNews headlines regarding a second wave Covid-19 cases, especially in Asia, Latin America, and the US, are hitting the wires worldwide. Volatility has once again kicked in broader markets, including many FTSE shares. The past week has seen the FTSE 100 gyrate between 6,335 and 6,050. Given the health and economic effects of the pandemic, investor sentiment may soon turn bearish again. Then it’d not be surprising to see main stock indexes swing lower soon.Such weakness in equity markets could be good for the price of gold, which is usually regarded as a ‘safe haven’. For hundreds of years, it has been as anstore of wealth and a hedge against economic or political uncertainties. Market participants have turned bullish on the precious metal in 2020 also due to the cheap money that is available worldwide. Many central banks, including the Bank of England, have cut interest rates further to help ease the pain of economic uncertainty. Economists are nervous as more debt has been issued and more money created than at any other time in history. There tends to be a negative correlation between interest rates and gold.How to include gold in your portfolioA diversified portfolio should ideally be made up of different asset classes. Many analysts recommend holding up to 10% of your investment in gold. Buying the physical asset is one option. In the UK, you can purchase the shiny metal through the Royal Mint Bullion.You may also consider investing in exchange-traded funds (ETFs), such as the WisdomTree Physical Gold ETF or the Invesco Physical Gold ETC. Owning some gold through miners may be another way to stay ahead of the curve. Which gold-mining shares would I consider backing? I’d start my research with companies that have strong asset bases, experienced management, and robust balance sheets.Within the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, companies that mine gold include Chile’s Antofagasta, Mexico-based Fresnillo, Russian operation Polymetal International, and Centamin, which focuses on the the Arabian-Nubian Shield. So far in 2020, the returns for these four companies have been -1%, 31%, 33%, and 40%, respectively.Investors should note that most gold stocks are low dividend-payers. So they may not be appropriate for passive income investing.Finally, there are investment funds that invest in various miners. They include the BlackRock Gold and General, UBS Solactive Pure Gold Miners ETF, and iShares Gold Producers UCITS ETF.Foolish takeawayAll asset classes have their advantages and disadvantages. I believe the rally in gold will likely push the price over $1,800 in 2020. However, as always, research your investments carefully and invest in companies your really believe have a long-term future. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Pandemic surges, economy sputters

first_imgIt’s really quite sickening. The bourgeoisie calculates profit and loss with callous disregard for the masses suffering from both the soaring COVID caseload and a collapsed job market. Now, many who became unemployed in the spring are running out of their 26 weeks of unemployment benefits. There were nearly 1 million new applications for unemployment insurance in the second week of November. But the stock market went up and down like a roller coaster last week, as hopeful news about Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine was followed by reports of surging viral infections. On the one hand, the shareholders could not contain their orgiastic excitement over Big Pharma making big money on millions and millions of vaccinations. But their enthusiasm was deflated as they counted the costs of more COVID cases: more medical bills for insurance companies to cover, more workers calling out sick, more deaths — and potentially more mass anger.   Why does the Dow Jones or the S&P rise and fall? Stock fluctuations basically reflect optimism or pessimism on the part of the 1% about their future bottom line — i.e., their ability to maximize the exploitation of labor. If there is a successful vaccine that will eventually help get workers back to producing what Marxists call “surplus value,” the portion of sales revenue above and beyond the cost of labor power, they will reap profits. But right now, workers can’t produce wealth if they are sick, dead or have to be quarantined so they don’t bring the virus into the workplace.Republicans and Democrats have failed to put forth a badly needed second stimulus bill, such as the HEROES Act passed by the House but not the Senate.Meanwhile, records are being broken every day for new infections. As with any crisis under capitalism dependent on racism, Black, Latinx and Indigenous communities suffer disproportionately. It doesn’t have to be this wayEven with the prospects of a COVID-19 vaccine, it’s hard for the masses of working class and oppressed people to see light at the end of the tunnel. And a cure for the pandemic will not cure capitalism of its own built-in sickness — a drive to maximize individual profits by driving down labor costs and thus beating out competitors. This has, since the early 1800s, caused cyclical economic downturns — crises of overproduction — that are doubly devastating in the current period of generalized capitalist decline. A lot of the jobs recently lost will not come back.As COVID deaths in the U.S. approach 250,000, and cases top 11 million; China in contrast has had fewer than 90,000 cases and below 5,000 deaths. Progress on a vaccine is further along than in the U.S.Moreover, China’s economy has not only reopened and recovered, it is the only major economy projected to grow in 2020. This is not just China boasting. The prediction comes from the International Monetary Fund’s World Economic Outlook report!Why the discrepancy? While there is a capitalist class in China, with some of its members very wealthy compared to the Chinese masses, China has a workers’ state whose orientation is fundamentally socialist. This means that human needs take precedence over profit.Socialism is exactly what workers all over the world — and this country is no exception — need. With a socialized health care system, workers would no longer be at the mercy of the for-profit medical industrial complex. There would be no Big Pharma bosses, who see only dollar signs in a much-needed COVID vaccine and treatment drugs. There would be laws to guarantee that everyone’s basic economic needs would be met.That won’t come about overnight, of course. In the meantime, socialists need to be in the vanguard of pushing demands that address the survival needs of the working class. These include good-paying jobs for those able to work and comparable income for anyone unable; free health care for everyone; and safe working conditions including PPE, hazard pay and no retaliation against workers who become ill, have to be quarantined or refuse to work unsafely.As the struggle grows, so will the realization of this basic class truth: A system that cannot meet these basic demands is a system that belongs in the trash can of history! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Olson Construction has begun construction on a five-story, 144-room Residence Inn by Marriott extended stay hotel in Pasadena, California, the first hotel to be constructed in Old Town Pasadena in more than 15 years. The Irvine, California-based general contractor was selected by owner Fair Oaks Hotels, LLC to construct the $30.5 million 94,091 square-foot hotel which is slated for completion in fall 2015. R.D.

Olson Construction. “It is exciting to contribute to an area like Old Town Pasadena that is so steeped in tradition.”The hotel’s interior and exterior design will weave in subtle Mediterranean architecture and design through the use of parapet and tiled gable roofs, hipped-roof corner towers and plaster walls. Additionally, a variety of window openings are highlighted, including groupings of punched, multi-story windows which allow ample natural light into the building.R. D. Olson most recently broke ground on the 250-room Paséa Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, Calif., and the 221-room Courtyard by Marriott in Anaheim, Calif., and is in the process of a significant hotel conversion near Los Angeles International Airport.

The accused was arrested on March 20, 2020 and has been in jail since then.Justice Bharati Dangre heard the bail application filed by Ataullah Ansari, who was arraigned as an accused after a case was registered at Kandivali police station and he was booked for offence under Section 376(2)(n) of IPC. A chargesheet has been submitted by the police on June 18, 2020.Initially, the accused sought bail before the Metropolitan Magistrate which was rejected, hence he moved High Court. According to the alleged victim in the case who filed a complaint in January this year, she came to be in touch with the applicant via Facebook and she uploaded her mobile number on the Facebook Account. The applicant contacted her and there used to be frequent telephonic conversations between the two. In 2019, she went to Uttar Pradesh which happened to be her native place and the applicant also visited there. The complainant said that she has divulged to the applicant that she had married to one person and he has divorced her. The complainant further alleged that a proximity developed between her and the applicant which resulted into establishing a physical relationship. Then, a discord arose between the two and the FIR contains details of the same. Court noted-“The complaint lodged by the prosecutrix is an immediate response to the said discord. The complainant herself alleged that the Applicant severed contact with the prosecutrix and she reported the matter to her father which resulted into filing of the FIR at Kandivali Police Station. The case of the Applicant is to the effect that the prosecutrix maintained a physical relationship with the Applicant as they shared a close bond of friendship and she never objected to the said act of physical proximity. The prosecutrix at the time of incident was 24 years of age and, according to the Applicant, it was a decision taken by a major person in her full consciousness.”Thus, after perusing through the facts of the case, Justice Dangre observed-“The Applicant and the prosecutrix are major and as per the version of the complaint, she encouraged the friendship initially which slowly resulted into a physical one. She had accompanied the Applicant at several places where the Applicant established physical contact with her. She never objected to the same and from January, 2019 till filing of the complaint in March, 2020, allowed the relationship to flourish. Then, one fine day, when the relationship turned sour, she filed the complaint. Prima facie reading of the complaint does not make out a case of sexual indulgence without her consent or against her will but points out a consensual act. The Applicant has been arrested since March 2019. In the backdrop of the allegations in the complaint, when prima facie no case of forcible sexual act is made out, he is entitled to be set on bail.”Thus, the applicant’s bail application was allowed and he was directed to furnish a bond of Rs.20,000.Case Number: Bail Application No.390 of 2020 Case name: Ataullah Fakruddin Ansari Vs.

first_imgABC News(JACKSON, Miss.) — Remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon are continuing to soak the South and Midwest.On Thursday, north of Jackson, Mississippi, more than 10 inches of rain fell, flooding streets and neighborhoods. Near Pensacola, Florida, more than a foot of rain has fallen in the last few days. Central Missouri on Thursday saw more than 5 inches, which caused additional flooding.Even more rain is expected as Gordon’s moisture is expected to continue interacting with a Midwest cold front.Flash flood watches this morning stretch from Arkansas to Maryland.Parts of Illinois may see 10 inches of rain because of Gordon, remnants of which also are moving east and north to areas that are expecting heavy precipitation over the next few days.Three separate storm systems are being tracked in the Atlantic.Florence, now a tropical storm with winds of about 65 mph, is moving toward the United States.Behind Florence are two tropical waves that could become storms — Helene and Isaac — meanwhile Florence is expected to regain strength and become a major hurricane early next week.

Goodlord becomes first property firm to sign race equality charter

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Goodlord becomes first property firm to sign race equality charter previous nextAgencies & PeopleGoodlord becomes first property firm to sign race equality charterLettings platform commits to new measures enshrined in the Race Fairness Commitment, to ensure equality of opportunity for staff.Richard Reed7th July 20200692 Views Goodlord has become the first property sector company to sign the Race Fairness Commitment (RFC).By pledging to the Charter, Goodlord commits to adopting new, data-driven measures to combat the career obstacles faced by Black, Asian and ethnic minority colleagues.Pioneered by diversity recruitment specialists, Rare, the RFC initiative was unveiled this week and has already been embraced by 16 of the UK’s leading law firms.Measures in the RFC include collecting quantitative data and monitoring employee lifecycles from recruitment to senior promotion, in order to identify the points at which Black, Asian and ethnic minority team members are unfairly falling behind their peers.Better recognisedThe RFC also involves a commitment to ensure race and racism are better recognised and talked about internally.Rare is making the RFC’s methodology available free to any employers who want to identify and tackle their organisations’ points of adverse impact on race. Detailed guidance and modelling are available at www.racefairnesscommitment.com.Goodlord is calling on other property sector companies to embrace the charter and put diversity at the heart of their recruitment and HR processes.Tackling inequalityWilliam Reeve, Goodlord CEO, said, “It’s a privilege to sign this charter and be the first property sector business to do so. We must all do more to tackle inequality through tangible action. How we recruit our teams and how we treat them in the workplace are two areas where more must be done.“Goodlord isn’t perfect. But we are committed to practising what we preach and doing everything in our power to move things in a positive direction. We believe embracing the Race Fairness Commitment is a key step in this journey.”Donovan Frew, CTO at Goodlord and NED at Rare, added: “As a black person in leadership positions at both Goodlord and Rare, signing this charter means a lot to me personally. For too long people have been held back from maximising their potential solely based on the colour of their skin.“This is as ridiculous as it is pernicious. Diversity has always been important to us here at Goodlord, but more can always be done. By signing up to this commitment we are agreeing to treat racial diversity like we treat every other important metric in the business; measure it, analyse it and act upon it.”Donovan Frew Race Fairness Commitment Racial equality Race awareness goodlord William Reeve July 7, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?
