Cliff D’Arcy | Tuesday, 8th December, 2020 | More on: RIO Enter Your Email Address In 34 years as an investor, I’ve witnessed four stock-market crashes (1987, 2000/03, 2007/09 and 2020). As a share owner, the first three market meltdowns hurt me. But this has been a great year for my family. As cheap shares plunged in late March, we moved our entire wealth into stocks shortly after the March madness. This decision has really helped us to retire richer and earlier.The year everything went upWhat puzzles me about 2020 is the usual concepts of risk and return have been abandoned. This year has seen rising values in asset classes across the board. Bonds (fixed-income IOUs issued by governments and corporates) surged in value as investors fled to safety. This pushed bond prices higher and their income yields lower. Likewise, as risk appetite returned after the US presidential election, stock prices soared globally. The FTSE 100 index had a near-record month in November as buyers snapped up cheap shares.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…Owners of alternative investments also enjoyed healthy gains. Cryptocurrency Bitcoin has had a good 2020, spiking to nearly $20,000 and almost tripling in value. Likewise, gold also shone this year — at around $1,865 an ounce, the price is up almost 28% in 2020. This confuses me. How can the price of everything — cheap shares, high-priced bonds, gold, Bitcoin, etc. — all rise together? Can we really enjoy an ‘all-assets rally’ without paying for it in the future?I believe in cheap sharesAs a value investor drawn to cheap shares, I read an excellent warning recently from Jeremy Grantham of GMO, a fund manager I greatly admire. In November, Grantham cautioned: “The one reality you can never change is that a higher-priced asset will always produce a lower return than a lower-priced asset. You can’t have your cake and eat it. You can enjoy it now, or you can enjoy it steadily in the distant future, but not both. And the price we will pay for having this market go higher and higher is a lower and lower 10-year return from the peak.”Thus, investors paying high prices today should expect low returns in future. This financial reality is almost impossible to avoid. Therefore, as a long-term value investor, I stick with the simple strategy of buying stakes in quality companies at fair prices. I won’t buy bonds with negligible or even negative income yields. Also, I won’t speculate on the price of gold or crypto, because short-term trading is terribly difficult to do well.I’d buy this cheap stockAs exuberance rises in melt-up markets, I seek low-priced stocks primed for recovery. Today, I like the cheap shares of global mining giant Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO), as it is heavily exposed to a global rebound in 2021. The Anglo-Australian multinational is a colossus: at the current share price of 5,443p, Rio is valued at £92.3bn. Rio is also a dividend dynamo, paying out a total of £3.65bn in shareholder dividends last year. That’s the fourth-largest cash payout in the FTSE 100, plus I expect this cash flood to keep rising.In a world of near-zero and negative interest rates, I think Rio’s stock should attract income investors. Right now, it offers a dividend yield of almost 5.5% a year, paid in quarterly instalments. That’s a compelling reason to buy and hold these cheap shares while they head for new highs. Hence, I’d happily buy Rio Tinto stock today! See all posts by Cliff D’Arcylast_img read more

There could be instances where on the previous day of the exam, or on the day of the exam, the candidate tests positive for COVID-19. The status of such students remain unexplained in the SOP, the Court noted.As per the SOP, separate rooms will be provided for COVID-19 positive students.The Court further noticed that the SOP does not indicate as to how candidates would be provided transportation to travel from their place of stay to the examination centre.These grey areas of the SOP affect the fundamental right of the students under Article 14 of the Constitution, the Court noted.”…the SOP dated 18.07.2020 and submission note dated 29.07.2020 are vague in certain areas or in other words, grey areas which we have observed hereinabove by way of illustration and this may result in genuine candidates being deprived of attending the examination and thereby their right guaranteed under Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution would be infringed. In other words, if there is discrimination between 2 candidates who are equals and without any rational basis, Article 14 of the Constitution would definitely be attracted”, the Court observed.The Court directed that “all logistic support shall be extended by the State to ensure such of the candidates who require medical attention, transportation, food (in case of COVID-19 candidates) and other facilities are provided and respondent-authorities shall also make sure that not only inside the examination hall but also outside the centres namely, in the precincts of the examination centre, the conditions prescribed under SOPs issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Affairs and SOP issued by the State Government from time to time are scrupulously and strictly followed by the candidates and persons accompanying them”.The Court, however, refused the prayer to stay the exams after noting that more than 1,84,368 students have already downloaded the hall tickets which would indicate their preparedness and interest of those students.The Court said that the interests of those students, who were not before the Court, required to be protected and that the same was taken into consideration to reject the interim relief to stay the exam.#KCET2020 Read the operative portion of the order of Karnataka HC which clarified that no student should be disallowed from attending #KCETExams on the ground on not fulfilling conditions in SOP.

Malfunctioning automobile exhaust blamed for first major wildfire of season

first_imgToa55/iStockBy KELLY MCCARTHY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A malfunctioning automobile exhaust appears to be the cause of the massive Apple Fire that has scorched 26,450 acres in Riverside County, California, and was only 5% contained as of Monday morning.The blaze, which has destroyed at least one home and two outbuildings, began shortly before 5 p.m. local time on Friday in the Cherry Valley area.No injuries have been reported, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.Based on eyewitness accounts and supporting evidence, officials said they determined the cause of the fire to be a malfunctioning diesel-fueled car that had emitted burning carbon from its exhaust system.Over 8,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes, which posed a particular challenge for families seeking a safe place to stay amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.“We had a lot of trouble finding a place to stay last night, because of so many people being evacuated at the same time,” Ket Sengchan told ABC News about evacuating with her young daughter. “Me and the baby kinda stayed in the car last night. I should be at home. I shouldn’t have to be running the streets looking for somewhere to sleep.”Nearly 2,600 homes were affected by the evacuation orders, fire officials said, adding they do not have a time frame for repopulating evacuated areas, according to ABC News Los Angeles station KABC-TV.People at the evacuation center are subject to COVID-19 testing before entering, according to fire department spokesperson Fernando Herrera.The American Red Cross was also assisting evacuees by temporarily housing them in hotels.California Office of Emergency Services said the Federal Emergency Management Agency approved a request from the Cal OES director and Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday for a Fire Management Assistance Grant for the Apple Fire. Officials said the approval “will ensure the availability of vital resources” for Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.More than 2,200 firefighters were deployed to battle the flames both in the air and on the ground and crews dropped 19,000 gallons of flame retardant from helicopters on Saturday to help create containment lines and protect personnel on the ground, KABC reported. The northern and eastern edges of the fire are in steep, rugged hillsides not accessible to firefighting vehicles, officials said.The National Weather Service said that the Southwest part of California has been elevated to critical fire weather conditions “due to hot temperatures, very low humidities, and locally gusty winds.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
