Some investors may be avoiding equity markets due to the threat of a second stock market crash. Economic risks are currently relatively high. This could lead to tough trading conditions for many businesses that causes investor sentiment to deteriorate.Clearly, a market downturn is likely to be painful for all investors in the short run. However, it can also provide buying opportunities for long-term investors. The stock market has a long track record of recovering from even its very worst declines. This could help an investor to generate impressive returns. It may even improve their prospects of retiring early.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…The prospect of a second market crashDetermining whether a second market crash will occur is an extremely challenging task. However, risks such as Brexit, the coronavirus pandemic and an unstable economic outlook may mean there’s an elevated chance of challenging conditions for investors. They could contribute to declining profitability and deteriorating investor sentiment in the coming months. This could prompt a return to large stock price falls as investors factor in lower profit guidance over the medium term.Clearly, there’s no guarantee that a further market decline will occur. Current stock prices may already factor in the aforementioned threats to global economic growth. However, the wide range of risks and their potential impact on global GDP growth may mean investor sentiment is highly changeable at the present time.Buying cheap shares in a downturnAs mentioned, a market crash would be a painful experience for most investors. They’d suffer losses on their current holdings. This may dissuade them from entertaining the idea of buying more stocks in order to avoid further losses.However, a market decline can provide excellent buying opportunities for long-term investors. During a downturn, high-quality companies likely to return to strong profit growth in the long run can trade at exceptionally low prices. Weak investor sentiment towards the equity market can produce a wide range of bargain stocks that go on to deliver impressive capital returns.There’s no guarantee any share will recover from a stock market crash. But a diverse portfolio of shares is relatively likely to produce impressive long-term returns. The track record of indexes such as the S&P 500 and FTSE 100 shows they’ve always experienced sustained bull markets following bear markets. Therefore, owning a broad range of high-quality businesses is likely to allow an investor to take part in a long-term recovery.Retirement prospects from investing money in sharesBuying shares after a second market crash may appear to be a risky move. In the short run, it can mean additional paper losses due to the potential for the stock market to move lower.However, the stock market’s recovery potential may mean equities offer a relatively attractive means of building a retirement nest egg. As such, capitalising on low stock prices may prove to be a logical response to any further market downturn.

first_imgREIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella“Idalia in Townsville ranks 11th on the state list and first on the Townsville LGA list,” she said. The other Townsville suburbs to make the top 68 were Rasmussen (+19.9), North Ward (+15%) and Railway Estate (+10.1%). Keyes and Co Property agent, and former Townsville City councillor, Tony Parsons, said there were suburbs doing well, and others that were still struggling, but there were positive signs in the local property market. View of Castle Hill in Townsville. Picture: Zak SimmondsTOWNSVILLE has emerged as a star performer in regional Queensland, with four suburbs recording double digit growth. REIQ has revealed the 68 suburbs that recorded double digit growth in the 12 months to June.Twenty-seven of those 68 top performing suburbs were outside of the southeast, with Townsville dominating the regional listings.REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said Idalia (+21.3% to $485,00 as of June) was a rapidly expanding suburb, located just 10 minutes from the Townsville CBD, and offering access to shopping centres, restaurants, beautiful landscaping around parks, lakes and the Ross River.It is dominated by older houses and luxury new homes, with properties ranging from the “low to mid $300,000s” to over $1 million. This four bedroom house at 47 Springside Terrace in Idalia is on the market for $868,000 and is listed with Keyes & CoHe said Idalia ticked a lot of boxes for families, but he was not surprised by the city’s other top suburbs with two of them “fringe suburbs” of the new stadium under construction.

We’re seeing growth outside the southeast corner,” Ms Mercorella said.In terms of price, the REIQ analysis found that two very different brackets dominated the list — below $350,000 and above $500,000 but below $750,000. “Eighteen top performing suburbs reported a median house price range below $350,000,” Ms Mercorella said. “Most of these suburbs are located in regional Queensland.”Similarly, 18 top performers reported an annual median house price range between $500,000 and $749,999 … 13 of these suburbs are located in the southeast corner.“Only 8 top performing suburbs reported an annual median price range above $1 million.

Mr Parsons said buyers could still get a bargain. last_img read more

Ranieri keen to keep progressing

first_img Riyad Mahrez’s double and goals from Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton sealed a comfortable 4-2 win for the Foxes in Ranieri’s first game in charge. The Foxes were 3-0 up inside the first 25 minutes as they clinically brushed aside their woeful visitors. Press Association They improved after the break but boss Dick Advocaat admitted he feared for his side. He said: “It’s not only the result which scares me a little bit, but the way we played, especially in the first half. “We still know what we have to do, we still have to change some things. “The first cross was a goal, the second cross was 2-0 and for the third goal the left-back was sleeping. “So then it was 3-0 and they were sharper and better. “But hopefully we’ll learn from this. And hopefully next week we can do better than today. “You cannot only buy players for £1million, £2million or £3million. That was the mistake because we have a president who’s doing everything he can to help us to help the team. “Today has nothing to do with the investment we made, the players were not in the right shape.” Boss Claudio Ranieri insisted Leicester must move from his dream debut as he plots the Foxes’ future. Leicester picked up from where they left off after winning seven of their last nine games to stay in the Barclays Premier League. It marked Ranieri’s first game in the top flight since leaving Chelsea in 2004 but the Italian, who replaced Nigel Pearson in July, will not dwell on it He said: “I’ve already forgotten what happened today, I am looking for a new team, a new squad and I am thinking ‘Saturday – West Ham’. “I asked the players, ‘you finished very well last season’ and I wanted to see them restart at the same level, the performance was very good. “The first half was outstanding, the second half was normal. “It’s OK, we made mistakes but when you win you are more confident and I say ‘hey, you made mistakes, this, this and this’ and I think they are more receptive when they win. “I said to them before ‘here is a band, a strong band, a rock band and when you score the song comes on’ and it was fantastic.” Second-half goals from Jermain Defoe and Steven Fletcher saved the Black Cats from embarrassment but they were beaten by half time with Leicester rampant. last_img read more
