3 tips to help you make a million in the stock market crash

first_img The stock market crash may have caused some investors to sell their shares and seek other methods of building wealth.However, while the stock market might remain volatile in the short term, over the long run, equities are unrivalled in their ability to build wealth for investors.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…With that in mind, here are three tips that could help you make the most of the stock market crash and improve your chances of building a seven-figure portfolio.Be greedy when others are fearfulThe stock market can be incredibly volatile at times. While this might be challenging in the short term, buying stocks during market declines may enable you to buy high-quality stocks when they offer wide margins of safety.As such, they could offer even higher returns than the market average over the long run. This may require you to be greedy when other investors are running scared, but history has shown that buying investments in a stock market crash is the best strategy to improve your long-term investment returns.Look past the stock market crashWhile owning stocks in a market crash might seem tough at the time, equities have a solid track record of recovering from their very worst declines.Over the past three-and-half decades, the FTSE 100 has been through many peaks and troughs. On more than two occasions, the index has lost around 50% of its value.Still, despite this performance, the market has managed to outperform many other mainstream assets over the long run. Indeed, it went on to post fresh record highs after those bear markets.Therefore, while the market may face further uncertainty in the short term, there’s a high probability the stock market will follow its long-term path to post new record highs in the coming years.Tax benefitsOne tool investors can use to make the most of the stock market crash is to use a tax-efficient investment account. Accounts such as a Stocks and Shares ISA or a SIPP, provide investors with tax benefits that could reduce the time it takes you to make a million in the market.For example, any money added to a SIPP attracts tax at your marginal tax rate. That’s 20% for basic rate taxpayers. Meanwhile, any income or capital gains earned on assets held inside a SIPP do not attract any further tax liabilities. The same goes for ISA assets.The bottom lineIt isn’t easy to make a million in the stock market, but by using the three tips above, and making the most of the stock market crash, you could improve your chances of hitting this target.Buying high-quality undervalued stocks, or a simple index tracker fund at a low level inside an ISA or SIPP could increase the size of your nest egg, and allow you to retire early, even if the market takes years to recover.

Woman journalist’s murder turns Veracruz into deadliest state for media this year

first_img MexicoAmericas News Yesterday’s discovery of the body of Yolanda Ordaz de la Cruz, a crime reporter and columnist for the regional daily Notiver in the east-coast port city of Veracruz, adds her name to the long list of journalists who have been murdered or have disappeared in Mexico. A total of 77 have been killed since 2000 and 23 have gone missing since 2003. Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out more Reports According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, seven Mexican journalists have been murdered since the start of the year and an eighth is missing. In two of the cases, there was a direct link with the victim’s work.Ordaz was the third journalist to be killed this year in Veracruz state, making it the deadliest single state for the media so far this year. The other two were a colleague of Ordaz at Notiver, Miguel Ángel López Velasco, also known as “Milo Vela”, and Noel López Olguín.“In this case, as in most of the previous ones, which are still unpunished, we are outraged by the way the local authorities rule out any link with the victim’s work as a journalist and encourage nasty rumours about the victim even before they start investigating the case,” said Reporters Without Borders, which visited Veracruz state shortly before this week’s tragedy.“Ordaz was one of those journalists who were exposed to danger because of their reporting speciality. At the same time, a link to organized crime obviously cannot be excluded in a state where three feared gangs, the Zetas, the Gulf Cartel and Michoacán’s La Familia, operate. And it is hard not to link Ordaz’s murder with that of her colleague, López, whose columns may have upset certain officials.”Reporters Without Borders added: “In a climate fraught with suspicion and self-censorship, there is an urgent need for mechanisms to protect journalists.” A new, federal-level security agreement signed last November has still not been implemented.Ordaz was found with her throat cut near the offices of the Imagen del Golfo newspaper 48 hours after her abduction on 24 July. A written message found beside the body said: “Friends also betray. Sincerely, Carranza.” Juan Carlos Carranza Saavedra, 33, has been identified by the state prosecutor as the person who murdered López and his family in June. “The motive could be linked to a personal difference” between López and Carranza, the prosecutor’s office said, without offering any further explanation.During its recent visit to Veracruz, Reporters Without Borders learned that, a few days before his murder, López had a heated exchange of words with a nephew of state governor Javier Duarte about information published in Notiver. On the morning of his murder, a column by López had questioned the reputation of two candidates for the job of Veracruz city traffic police chief. Several journalists also told Reporters Without Borders that journalists had been fired at several news media on direct orders from local officials.In the Ordaz murder, the state prosecutor’s office immediately ruled out any link with her work as a journalist, but said investigators were working on the theory that it had something to do with her “links to organized crime.” Notiver’s management did not want to answer Reporters Without Borders’ questions for the time being.Ordaz is the fourth woman journalist to be killed in Mexico in the past decade. Guadalupe García Escamilla of radio Estéreo 91 was murdered in Nuevo Laredo (Tamaulipas) on 16 April 2005. Felicitas Martínez and Teresa Bautista of Triqui indigenous community radio station La Voz que Rompe el Silencio were the victims of a double murder in Oaxaca state on 7 April 2008. A fifth woman journalist, Maria Esther Aguilar Cansimbe, has been missing in Michoacán state since 11 November 2009.A report prepared for a US congressional committee headed by Republican senator Charles Grassley revealed yesterday that 122 firearms from the United States were found at crime scenes in Mexico or were intercepted en route to Mexican drug cartels.Cartoon: ¡Basta de Sangre! ¡No mas Sangre! campaign.

Delight as Serena Williams ‘welcomes baby girl’

first_imgMiami, United States | AFP | Tennis superstar Serena Williams gave birth to a baby girl on Friday, US media reported, prompting an outpouring of delight from fellow professionals, celebrities and fans of the sporting icon.Williams, who will turn 36 later this month, was admitted to the St Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida on Wednesday before going into labor overnight.There was no immediate confirmation of the birth from Williams’ representatives.Elder sister Venus Williams described herself as “super excited” after being informed of the reports concerning the baby as she walked on to the court for her third-round match at the US Open in New York.However she declined to take questions on the subject in her post-match press conference.“I’m definitely available to answer questions about tennis. That’s all right now,” Venus told reporters.Earlier, a producer with the Florida-based WPBF television station cited hospital sources as saying Williams’ daughter weighed in at six pounds and 13 ounces (3.09 kilograms). Celebrity magazine US Weekly cited an unnamed source close to the tennis star confirming the birth.Williams, who is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, was swiftly greeted with an avalanche of congratulations from well-wishers.“Congrats Serena!!! So much joy for you!!!” Spanish star Rafa Nadal wrote on Twitter.Pop diva Beyonce took to Instagram to send her message, posting a portrait of a pregnant Williams in a flowing white gown with the message: “Congratulations Serena!” Williams’ coach Patrick Mouratoglou added on Twitter: “Congratulations @SerenaWilliams for your baby girl. I am so happy for you and I feel your emotion. Recover well & enjoy without limitation.” US tennis legend Chris Evert meanwhile chimed: “I’m so thrilled for her. And what a role model she’s going to be for her daughter.”Media reports said 23-time Grand Slam singles champion Serena — who revealed she was pregnant in April — was induced overnight Thursday.Other fans meanwhile wasted no time in anointing the tennis star’s daughter as a future champion.“Hello to the future queen of tennis,” one post on Twitter read. “A future champion is born,” added another.Those sentiments sparked light-hearted alarm for Spanish star Garbine Muguruza. Told that Williams’ baby is a girl, Muguruza replied: “Well, I hope she doesn’t play tennis.”– ‘Outrageous’ goal –Williams has vowed to return to competitive tennis in January to defend her Australian Open title, which she won while newly pregnant.Williams last month told Vogue in a wide-ranging interview that she had set herself a goal of returning to play in Melbourne at next year’s Open.“It’s the most outrageous plan,” she said. “I just want to put that out there. That’s, like, three months after I give birth. I’m not walking anything back, but I’m just saying it’s pretty intense.”Williams’ coach Mouratoglou meanwhile joked Friday that he expected to hold the tennis star to her word.“Btw @serenawilliams I wish you a speedy recovery… we have a lot of work ahead of us,” Mouratoglou wrote in a Twitter post.Williams also revealed in her Vogue interview she had long suspected she would give birth to a girl.“Two weeks after we found out (about the pregnancy), I played the Australian Open. I told Alexis it has to be a girl because there I was playing in 100-degree weather, and that baby never gave me any trouble. Ride or die. Women are tough that way,” Williams told the magazine.A separate article in Vanity Fair in June said Williams, who unveiled her pregnant body in a nude cover photo for the magazine, planned to tie the knot with Ohanian later this year after the birth. The couple announced their engagement in December after meeting in 2015 in Rome.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
