Kirsteen Mackay | Saturday, 15th February, 2020 | More on: MGGT “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” If you’ve chosen well when buying stocks in a declining market, then when sentiment improves, you’ll be holding on to a portfolio of prosperous stocks with strong share prices. Warren Buffett, arguably the world’s number one investor, has lots of good advice for potential investors. It may surprise you to hear that one of his preferred times to buy equities is during a market downturn.Fear causes people to panic sell, which is why a declining market is often a great time to buy.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…Going against the crowd is not an easy thing to do though. The trick is to be confident in what you’re buying. Do your due diligence, carefully research the companies you’re interested in and only buy shares in businesses that you wholeheartedly believe can go the distance.Failing to plan is planning to failThere’s no perfect time to buy and timing the market is difficult for even the most experienced of investors. If you’re confident that you’re buying shares in a quality company and are prepared to hold them for the long term, then the price you pay becomes somewhat irrelevant.Inspect the company’s annual report. Look for signs of weakness, such as negative cash flow, when the company’s cash payments exceed its income. Look for an economic moat which would be a sustainable competitive advantage that will endure. Check if the dividend yield is long-established, and whether it has been increasing on a regular basis. Does it have sufficient cover so it’s not at risk of a cut?Looking at the price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) can give you a sign of whether the share price is trading below fair value. Anything north of 15 could be considered high, while above 20 is probably overvalued. Popular stocks often end up with a high P/E because they’ve been overbought when little else is appealing. These stocks may still be worth picking up during a declining market. On the other hand, too low a P/E could be a warning sign. Sustainable sectors during a recessionEssential consumer goods such as food and drink tend to do well in a recession as they have longevity. People always need to eat and drink.Information technology is at the heart of every business nowadays, and that’s only getting stronger. One firm I’ve been keeping an eye on is Meggitt (LSE:MGGT). This company leads the way globally in extreme environment engineering. It’s an innovator specialising in advanced technologies in aerospace, defence, and energy – three areas the world increasingly depends on but is progressively opposed to.In recent times airlines have been at the mercy of price pressures, increased competition, and the fallout from the Boeing 737 MAX fiasco.Meanwhile, oil stocks have been in sharp decline because of reduced demand and the economic effects of the coronavirus.Political instability and the on-again, off-again US-China trade war have done plenty to warrant an increase in demand for defence stocks, but these are also out of favour with climate change activists.While none of these sectors feature highly among ethical investors portfolios, they are all necessary components of our modern world. Therefore, I think the strong will survive and my favourites in these sectors are Ryanair, BP, and Meggitt.Meggitt has a £5bn market cap, P/E of 35, earnings per share of 18 and a 2.5% forward dividend yield.

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your name here Alarming report comes on the heels of “100 deadliest days” New teen drivers ages 16-17 years old are three times as likely as adults to be involved in a deadly crash, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. This alarming finding comes as the “100 Deadliest Days” begin, the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day when the average number of deadly teen driver crashes climbs 15 percent compared to the rest of the year. Over the past five years, more than 1,600 people were killed in crashes involving inexperienced teen drivers during this deadly period.“Teen crashes spike during the summer months because teens are out of school and on the road,” said Amy Stracke, Managing Director of Traffic Safety Advocacy for AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The Foundation’s research found that inexperience paired with greater exposure on the road create a deadly combination for teen drivers.”The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s latest study, Rates of Motor Vehicle Crashes, Injuries, and Deaths in Relation to Driver Age, analyzes crash rates per mile driven for all drivers and found that for every mile on the road, drivers ages 16-17 years old are:3.9 times as likely as drivers 18 and older to be involved in a crash2.6 times as likely as drivers 18 and older to be involved in a fatal crash4.5 times as likely as drivers 30-59 to be involved in a crash3.2 times as likely as drivers 30-59 to be involved in a fatal crashFatal teen crashes are on the rise. The number of teen drivers involved in fatal crashes increased more than 10 percent from the previous year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) 2015 crash data, the latest data available. To reverse this alarming trend, AAA urges parents to help reduce the number of deadly crashes on the road by getting more involved and talking to their teens about the dangers of risky behavior behind the wheel.“Parents are the front line of defense in keeping our roads safer this summer,” said Matt Nasworthy, Traffic Safety Consultant for AAA – The Auto Club Group. “It all starts with educating teens about safety on the road and modeling good driving behaviors like staying off the phone and always buckling up.”Three factors that commonly result in deadly crashes for teen drivers are:Distraction: Distraction plays a role in nearly six out of 10 teen crashes, four times as many as official estimates based on police reports. The top distractions for teens include talking to other passengers in the vehicle and interacting with a smart phone.Not Buckling Up: In 2015, the latest data available, 60 percent of teen drivers killed in a crash were not wearing a safety belt. Teens who buckle up significantly reduce their risk of dying or being seriously injured in a crash.Speeding: Speeding is a factor in nearly 30 percent of fatal crashes involving teen drivers. A recent AAA survey of driving instructors found that speeding is one of the top three mistakes teens make when learning to drive.To keep roads safer this summer, AAA encourages parents to:Have conversations with their teens early and often about distraction and speeding.Teach by example and minimize risky behavior when driving.Make a parent-teen driving agreement that sets family rules for teen drivers.TeenDriving.AAA.com has a variety of tools to help prepare parents and teens for the dangerous summer driving season. The online AAA StartSmart program also offers great resources for parents on how to become effective in-car coaches as well as advice on how to manage their teen’s overall driving privileges. Teens preparing for the responsibility of driving should enroll in a driver education program that teaches how to avoid driver distraction and other safety skills. AAA also offers membership discounts for new teen drivers to help keep them safe on the road in case of an emergency. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here

Credit: CaltechYuki Oka, assistant professor of biology, has been named one of six recipients of the 2016 McKnight Scholars Award. The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience awards $75,000 per year for three years to support young scientists who are establishing their own laboratories and research centers. The award is only available to researchers in the first four years of a tenure-track faculty position.“A McKnight Scholar Award is one of the most prestigious early-career honors that a young neuroscientist can receive,” said Anthony Movshon, chair of the awards committee and professor at New York University, in a press release. “This year’s Scholars are a superbly talented group, with as much promise as any selected in the past. … Their work will help us to understand the brain’s function in health and in disease, and will shape the neuroscience of the future.”Oka studies the neural mechanisms controlling thirst. These mechanisms help the body maintain a healthy balance of water and salt. He is attempting to isolate exactly which circuits in the brain regulate thirst and to determine how those circuits are triggered by external signals. Understanding these key brain functions may lead to new treatments for appetite-related disorders.The McKnight Foundation of Minneapolis, Minnesota has supported neuroscience research since 1977. It created the Endowment Fund in 1986 in honor of William L. McKnight, an early leader of the 3M Company who had a personal interest in neurological diseases and wanted his legacy to help find cures. Previous awardees from Caltech include Athanossios Siapas, professor of computation and neural systems, and Kai Zinn, professor of biology.

We studied diving patterns and performance (dive depth, duration, frequency and organization during the foraging trip) in relation to diet in nonbreeding Gentoo Penguins (Pygoscelis papua) over 59 days (involving 5,469 dives) in winter. We estimated foraging ranges and prey capture rates, and compared foraging behavior with that of breeding (chick-rearing) birds. Foraging was highly diurnal with 98% of foraging trips completed during the same day. Foraging-trip frequency was 0.8/day, trip duration was 6-8 h, and birds spent 51-62% of the foraging trip diving. Dive depth and duration were bimodal. Shallow dives (30 m; 55% of total number and 81% of dive time) averaged 74-105 m and 2.7-3.5 min, respectively. Deep-dive duration exceeded the subsequent surface interval, but shallow dives were followed by surface intervals two to three times dive duration. Deep dives showed clear diel patterns, averaging 10-20 m at dawn and dusk and 70-90 m at midday. These results are consistent with the patchy vertical and horizontal distribution and diel movements of Antarctic krill, the main winter prey of Gentoo Penguins (including study birds). We suggest that shallow dives are mainly searching dives, and deep dives mainly for feeding. Foraging activity of nonbreeding Gentoo Penguins in winter is similar to that of chick-rearing birds. The only major differences are that foraging-trip frequency is 20% less and stomach-content mass on return ashore 30% less in winter. We conclude that foraging activity in Gentoo Penguins is changed by varying the frequency and duration of foraging trips, rather than by changing the pattern and rate of diving.
