They are often those sectors that face challenging near-term outlooks, or that may struggle to adapt to a rapidly-evolving world economy following the coronavirus pandemic.For example, sectors such as banking and energy are relatively unpopular at the present time. Banks face the prospect of an extended period of low interest rates that could negatively impact on their profitability. Similarly, demand for oil and gas has fallen this year, which has caused energy companies to report declining profitability in many cases.While their challenges may continue over the short run, their low valuations prompted by the stock market crash could mean there are buying opportunities on offer for long-term investors.Focusing on financial statementsAs mentioned, the stock market crash has put pressure on the financial positions of many companies. Therefore, it is perhaps more important than ever to ensure that any stock you are thinking about buying has sound finances through which to overcome a tough period for the economy.Through analysing a company’s annual report, you can ascertain its financial position and how likely it is to survive a period of slower growth. You may also gauge how easily it can adapt to a period of rapid change in consumer tastes, and whether it has the right strategy to return to strong growth.Through buying unpopular companies with sound finances and solid strategies, you could enjoy strong capital growth potential in the coming years. Annual reports and recent updates are available for free online. This means that any investor can identify unpopular sectors, such as banking and energy, and then select the most attractive businesses to buy within them.Making a million after the stock market crashThe stock market crash is not a one-off event. Equity markets have experienced bear markets and downturns fairly regularly over recent decades. Even with them included, investors can obtain a high-single-digit annual total return simply from purchasing a diverse range of shares.Assuming an 8% annual return, an investment of $100,000 would become worth over a million within 30 years. However, through buying cheap shares, you could obtain a higher rate of return that improves your chances of making a million as the stock market recovers in the coming years.

Open Pupitres bar with a wine list of 248 wines

first_imgIn Zagreb, a boutique wine bar Pupitres, the most popular Croatian sommelier Jelena Šimić Valentić, has been opened for all wine lovers, both domestic and foreign.Today, when exactly three years have passed since the first wine workshop held at the Jelena Šimić Valentić Wine School, Pupitres boutiqe of wine culture has opened its doors to the public. Great story and certainly new quality content in the city of Zagreb. By the way, Pupitres bar was created as a logical continuation of Jelena’s work in promoting wine culture and winemaking, especially Croatian indigenous varieties, Pupitres will offer wine workshops and education on wines, pairing wines with food, aromas, wine regions and famous wines from all over the world, which can be seen in the small wine library, wine shop, but also the wine list of the bar.”The wine list of Pupitres is carefully made and very rich, and I would say educational. It currently contains 248 wines, of which we offer as many as 21 champagnes, and I will refresh the menu. It is important to note that all wines from the menu are available to guests and by the glass. I will help each guest choose a wine and tell him a wine story about what he is tasting. Tattinger Prelude will be the champagne of the house and I recommend everyone to start or end the day with a glass of top quality champagne.”, said sommelier Jelena Simic Valentic. Jelena personally tasted and selected each wine from the menu. She took such an approach for all other offers, especially for breakfast, coffee, teas, raw cakes and small snacks with a selection of cheeses and prosciutto.But the most important thing is certainly the large offer of avina, which consists of 150 wines from Croatia from all over Croatia, as well as the fact that all wines are poured into a glass. “My vision and concept of Pupitres is a place I would personally love to come to if such a place ever existed. As a business woman, I often skip breakfast and decided to stack healthy meals at Pupitres. Every morning I will look for fresh fruit at Dolac, we offer specially selected cereals. We will change the offer according to my inspiration and seasons, but it will always be fresh, healthy and of high quality..” points out Šimić Valentić.Jelena Šimić Valentić is a sommelier and consultant with twelve years of experience in the hospitality industry, and the founder of Pupitres, the first wine culture boutique in Croatia. A year ago, thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, Jelena raised 127 kuna in five days to decorate the space of her Wine School, which was a great success. In less than three years, she held as many as 000 wine schools and workshops in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and brought wine closer to people in a very special way.Zagreb is not only now in the main tourist season but also full of foreigners throughout the year, so I am desks conceived as a place for the promotion of Croatian wine. “I want to bring wine closer to each guest in a special way. ” concluded Šimić Valentić.last_img read more

Australia lowers COVID-19 death toll after ‘youngest victim’ found not to have virus

first_imgQueensland state Minister for Health Steven Miles apologized to Turner’s family.”Under this level of scrutiny, in some cases in quarantine, has only compounded that tragedy and their grief and to them I am so deeply sorry,” Miles told reporters in Brisbane.The revision means Australia has had 102 COVID-19 deaths from almost 7,200 infections, well below other countries.With new infections now largely under control, many walks of Australian life are returning to normal, bringing a rise in the number of people commuting to major cites for work.Officials have urged people to continue working from home if possible, but they have also moved to bolster transport services.In Australia’s most populous state, New South Wales (NSW), around 3,300 extra buses, trains and ferry routes were on Tuesday added to Sydney’s public transport network to temporarily increase the capacity for physical distancing. Topics : A man thought to be the youngest person to have died from coronavirus in Australia did not have the virus at the time of his death, officials said.Late last month, officials said a 30-year-old man with underlying health conditions had died from coronavirus in the state of Queensland, sending officials scrambling to understand how he caught the virus in a remote part of Australia.Mobile testing found no local COVID-19 cases, and late on Monday authorities said subsequent testing showed the man named as Nathan Turner did not die from COVID-19.last_img read more

Tokyo holds Olympic torch rehearsal as spectre of virus looms

first_img Loading… Tokyo Olympic organisers held a dummy run for the torch relay Saturday as fears over the coronavirus epidemic continue to cast a dark shadow over preparations for this summer’s Games. A quartet of runners carried unlit torches for some 200 metres each as organisers meticulously went over the fine details before the Olympic flame arrives in Japan to wind its way around the country from March 26 to July 24, when the Games begin. Japanese actress Satomi Ishihara ran the third leg of the relay rehearsal Watched by security and police, the torch-bearers, sporting the official white Olympic uniform with diagonal red stripe, passed a fake flame to one another followed by onlookers, local residents and city officials as traffic was diverted for the event. “It’s thrilling to think this will take place across Japan over 121 days,” said actress Satomi Ishihara, who ran the third leg of the relay rehearsal. “I’m sure it will leave behind a lot of good memories.”Advertisement Read Also: Japanese snow shortage puts Tokyo 2020 heat prevention plan at risk However, concerns over the fast-spreading coronavirus – which has killed more than 1,500 people and infected over 66,000 in China – have triggered calls for Tokyo organisers to reveal whether they have contingency plans, despite their assertions the Olympics will go ahead as planned. Japan, which registered its first fatality from the disease on Thursday, is one of the worst-hit countries outside of mainland China with at least 30 cases in the country and more than 200 positive tests aboard a quarantined on a cruise ship floating off Yokohama since last week.

Perry steamrolls Oliver; Langley nips Schenley

first_imgBIG WIN—Perry quarterback Greg McGhee completed 11 of 15 passes for 225 yards and threw for three touchdowns in the Commodore’s 35-0 win over North Side rival Oliver. (Photo by William McBride) Perry’s defense also held Oliver to 60 yards total offense, including -30 on the ground.“As a team, we played well,” said Mc­Ghee. “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, and we did what we could to prepare ourselves during the week. We studied film and worked hard in practice and we were rewarded with a win.”Langley 21, Schenley 18Langley posted a key victory when they knocked off Schenley, 21-18, at Cupples Stadium on Saturday.Austin Turner scored on a 30-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Jaquan Green with 3:27 left in the game to win it for Langley.“It felt good,” said Turner. “I went on the fade route, and (Green) saw me in the end zone. I jumped over (the defender) and got it, that simple.”Langley’s Deyshawn Martin returned the opening kickoff 87 yards for a score.Later on the quarter, with 6:15 left, Myles Catlin took a 4-yard run into the end zone to even things up at six.“There were points in the game where we could’ve been more effective,” Langley coach Kenny Wright said. “But I am happy with the progress that this team is making.”Joey Bell scored on a 23-yard touchdown run with 3:26 in the first quarter.Later, Schenley’s DeAndre Black returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown. And with 5:02 left in the third quarter, Andre Reed put the Spartans ahead, 18-13, with a 3-yard TD run. But in the fourth quarter their 16 penalties for 113 yards would be problematic for Schenley to close out the game.“We don’t yet understand that there are four quarters in a football game,” Schenley coach Jason Bell said. “That is the reason that we gave them good opportunities to make plays and eventually beat us.”Langley went winless in 2009. They’re looking to improve to the point that they were 2008 when they made the post-season with a .500 conference record.“We’re pleased with some of the changes that we were able to make over the past year,” Wright said. “I think we’re ready to get back to winning again.”Allderdice 27,Peabody 16Allderdice continued to improve on its struggles in recent years by added another one to the win column by defeating the Highlanders.Patrick Ferguson rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns. Mike Pfleger and Jaylen Wilkins also scored on runs of 7 and 6 yards.The Dragons remained undefeated with the win, and Peabody stayed winless.Brashear also defeated Westinghouse, 41-6, Thursday night.(Follow our continuing coverage of City League Football and add your comments to our website at www.new­pittsburgh­courier­online.com.)

They also connected on scores from 9 and 56 yards in the game. Devin Ghafoor brought in five passes for 109 yards; including a 58-yard score in the first half.last_img read more
