See all posts by Peter Stephens Warren Buffett is one of the most successful investors of all time. He has been able to generate market-beating returns on a consistent basis over a long period. This has enabled him to become one of the richest people on earth.His investment style focuses on purchasing undervalued companies. With the FTSE 350 appearing to offer a wide range of businesses that trade at significantly lower price levels than they have done in the past, there could be numerous opportunities for value investors to capitalise on them.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…Furthermore, with other popular assets such as cash and bonds seeming to offer unfavourable risk/reward ratios, now could be the right time for you to focus your capital on the stock market.Buffett’s track recordAs mentioned, Warren Buffett has been able to deliver consistently high returns over a long time period. He has been able to achieve this through using a simple methodology, which can be executed by almost any investor. Therefore, even though the stock market has experienced a decade-long bull market, his strategy could offer significant returns for long-term investors.Even if there is a bear market in 2020 and investors experience a disappointing year, Buffett’s investment strategy could be a useful ally. He has a successful track record of purchasing shares when other investors are concerned about the near-term prospects for the economy. As such, however 2020 turns out from an investment performance perspective, keeping an eye on how Warren Buffett reacts in terms of his purchases and sales could be a good idea.Relative appealBuffett has focused his capital on the stock market rather than other mainstream assets such as cash and bonds. This has provided him with access to higher growth rates that have, in turn, boosted his financial standing over previous decades.With interest rates expected to stay low in 2020, the opportunities to generate a high return may be more readily available within the stock market versus other asset classes. Therefore, focusing your capital on equities and following a value investment strategy could prove to be a far more rewarding move than holding large sums of cash or accepting lower returns in fixed income assets.Value opportunitiesOf course, risks such as Brexit and a US/China trade war could mean that there are a wide range of value investing opportunities already available within the FTSE 350. In many cases, investors have priced in a potential slowdown in growth in 2020, with this being reflected via lower valuations across a number of different sectors.In some cases, such companies offer economic moats and strong long-term growth opportunities. Since Warren Buffett has focused on those areas when investing his own capital in the past, doing likewise with your own capital could be a shrewd move. It may enable you to improve your financial future, and in doing so emulate the past performance of Warren Buffett.

[COVID19 Suo Motu Case]’During National Crisis Supreme Court Can’t Be A Mute Spectator, Our Intention Is Not To Interdict High Courts’: SC

first_imgTop Stories[COVID19 Suo Motu Case]’During National Crisis Supreme Court Can’t Be A Mute Spectator, Our Intention Is Not To Interdict High Courts’: SC Srishti Ojha27 April 2021 1:01 AMShare This – xThe Supreme Court on Tuesday clarified that the objective of suo moto proceedings taken up by it on COVID issues is not to supplant the High Courts or to take over from High Courts what they are doing.
”The object of these proceedings are not to supplant the High Courts or to take over from High Courts what they are doing. High Courts are in a better position to monitor what is going on within their territorial boundaries.” Justice Chandrachud-led bench clarified.
”During national crisis, Supreme Court cannot be a mute spectator. The role of the Supreme Court is complimentary in nature. The issues which travails state boundaries is what this court will look into and thus Article 32 jurisdiction has been assumed”, said the CourtThe observation was made by a bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, L Nageswara Rao and S Ravindra Bhat while hearing the suo-moto case taken by it in relation to supply of Oxygen, medicines, vaccines to fight COVID19.
The Supreme Court has clarified that the purpose of the top Court court assuming jurisdiction suo moto under Article 32 is not to supplant or substitute the process of hearings undertaken by various High Courts to deal with issues related to pandemic.
”High Courts are best situated to make an assessment of ground realities in each states and find flexible solutions for the problems faced by citizens.Therefore, we see no reason or justification to interdict the High Courts”, the Bench has said.
Having said that, the Bench further observed that there is still a need for Supreme Court to intervene on certain national issues, as there might be issues relating to coordination between states.
The Bench added that the intervention of the Supreme Court must be understood in the correct perspective. There are some issues which transcend the regional boundaries.
”At a time of national crisis, the Supreme Court cannot be a mute spectator” the bench observed.
The Bench clarified that the Supreme Court is playing a complementary role to the High Courts, and if they have any difficulty in dealing with an issue due to territorial limitations, the top Court will help.
”It is in that spirit that the Supreme Court has assumed jurisdiction suo moto under Article 32. Therefore, we clarify that the High Courts need not be restrained from dealing with the issues.” the Bench observed.
A bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, L Nageswara Rao and S Ravindra Bhat was considering the suo moto case In Re Distribution of Essential Supplies and Services During COVID.The bench has called for a report from the Central Government on issues related to supply of oxygen, essential drugs, vaccine pricing. The matter will be next considered on April 30.At least 11 High Courts in the country are dealing with issues related to COVID management in their respective jurisdiction.BackgroundIt was on April 23 that a bench led by the then CJI SA Bobde decided to take this suo moto case. The bench had observed the orders passed by various High Courts on COVID related issues “may have the effect of accelerating and prioritising the services to a certain set of people and slowing down the availability of these resources to certain other groups whether the groups are local, regional or otherwise”.The bench then issued notices to the Centre, State Government, UTs and parties before the High Courts to show-cause why the Supreme Court should not pass a uniform order is issues such as supply of medical oxygen, supply of essential drugs, supply of vaccines and declaration of lockdown.This came under widespread criticism from the legal community, as it was apprehended that the Supreme Court was trying to take over the cases from the High Courts, which were passing urgent orders to deal with these issues within their jurisdictions.Many senior lawyers also criticized the decision of the bench to appoint Senior Advocate Harish Salve as an amicus in the matter, instead of seeking the assistance of the Attorney General for India. It was also pointed out that Salve may not be not in a position to understand the present problems in India as he was a resident of London.The Supreme Court Bar Association filed an application in the case saying that the High Courts should be allowed to hear the cases, as they are best suited to deal with the local issues.The next day, Salve requested the bench to relieve him as an amicus in the case, saying he was disturbed by the criticism. He said that he did not want the case to be heard under a shadow that his appointment was based on his long friendship with CJI Bobde from school days.The bench expressed displeasure at the criticism by the senior lawyers and asserted that there was no intention to stall the High Courts from proceeding with the case.The bench said that the criticism was based on baseless perceptions as there was nothing in the order which stopped High Courts from dealing with the issues.Click Hear To Download/Read OrderTagsSupreme Court Suo Moto Case Supply Of Oxygen And Medicines Justice DY Chandrachud #Justice L Nageswara Rao Justice S Ravindra Bhat Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgARCATA >> When DJ Broome stepped into Lumberjack Arena for the first time last season, things were a little different.Not by something new with how Humboldt State’s gym looked like.

Luxury home sales drop 35 in Toronto and Vancouver highend condo sales

first_imgTORONTO – Sales of luxury homes in two of Canada’s most expensive cities fell this year, as the high-end real estate market continued to feel the impact of foreign buyers taxes.Realty brokerage Re/Max says sales of single-detached homes priced from $1 million to $2 million fell 35 per cent from a year ago in both Toronto and Vancouver.According to the annual report, released Tuesday, sales of single-detached homes in the $2-million-to-$3-million range were down 50 per cent in Toronto and 22 per cent in Vancouver.Meanwhile, homes that were sold for more than $3 million dropped 44 per cent in Toronto and 45 per cent in Vancouver.Re/Max says homebuyers have been grappling with the introduction of foreign buyers taxes in Ontario and B.C., along with increased property transfer taxes and school taxes on B.C. homes over $3 million.“All the new rules that the government implemented, along with the foreign buyers tax and the new lending regulations, it all just put a crunch on the most expensive part of the market,” said Christopher Alexander, executive vice-president and regional director of Re/Max Integra’s Ontario-Atlantic business.He says luxury homeowners may have also been hesitant to list this year amid signs that the country’s housing market may be cooling, choosing instead to “wait it out.”Although luxury home sales are weakening, sales in the low-end of the luxury condo market saw increases driven mainly by millennials who are using their inheritances and baby boomers looking to downsize, the report said.Alexander says condos appeal to baby boomers because they can get more value for their money, especially in the major cities.“Most of them have put all their kids in school. They don’t need so much space anymore. Their single-detached home is worth a fortune and now they can buy a really nice luxury condo that is not as big in a really great urban area where they have access to a more urbanized lifestyle, more action,” he said.“Luxury is not just about price. A lot of it has to do with pedigree. If you buy with a million in Toronto or Vancouver, it doesn’t get you a luxury home but if you get a suite in the Four Seasons or the Shangri-La or the Ritz-Carlton. You’re going to get a small condo in a luxury building with all the luxury amenities. You’ve got that pedigree piece that is appealing to the higher end of the market.”The report says condo sales in the $1-million-to-$2-million range were up two per cent year over year in Toronto and six per cent in Vancouver. Calgary saw their condo sales in this price range jump by three per cent, while Victoria sales climbed 19 per cent.The most expensive condominium sold in Toronto in 2018 so far was priced at $11.5 million, topping the $8 million that was paid for the most expensive condo sold in 2017. The priciest condo sold in Vancouver so far this year was $11.7 million, up 34 per cent from the top price of $8.7 million paid last year.Follow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter.last_img read more

Sporting beyond the field

first_imgThere have been plenty of controversies lately regarding the Indian cricket team wearing camouflaged Army caps to show solidarity with the martyrs of the recent Pulwama terror strike during the ODI against Australia in Ranchi. On the other hand, the 2018/19 Ranji Trophy champions Vidarbha playing the 2018/19 Irani Cup against Rest of India (ROI) in Nagpur also expressed solidarity with the slain soldiers. On Day 4 of the ongoing game, the Vidarbha cricketers wore black armbands to protest the Pulwama attack. The ROI batsmen Hanuma Vihari and Ajinkya Rahane also joined them. Thus, in perspective, the sports field has always been used to make bigger political statements. The 2009 attack on Sri Lankan cricketers when a bus carrying the team was fired upon by 12 gunmen near Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore was a one-off incident when the world learnt that sportsmen were not out of the terrorists’ radar. Before the cricketing fraternity could realise the consequences, Pakistan plunged into the abyss of isolation. The black armband protest by Zimbabwean cricketers Andy Flower and Henry Olonga during the 2003 cricket World Cup to “mourn the death of democracy in Zimbabwe” drew attention from far and wide. Flower and Olonga were eventually forced to leave Zimbabwe. They later settled in the UK. This political unrest also led to unwillingness from foreign countries to play cricket in Zimbabwe. Australian Prime Minister John Howard expressed concerns for the Australian cricket team playing thereafter he led the charge to throw out Zimbabwe from the Commonwealth of Nations for their land seizure programme resulting in the death of many white Zimbabwean farmers. England forfeited their opening game in Zimbabwe at the 2003 World Cup as a sign of opposition to the regime. The Black Power salute photo, one of the most influential protest images of all time, was captured when US sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos stepped onto the world stage during the Summer Olympics in Mexico City in 1968 and raised their gloved fists in a human rights protest during their medal ceremony. The image became an iconic picture of the Black Power movement and an emotional reference for NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality. On October 31, 1984, India abandoned the rest of the tour with Pakistan when they learnt that former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had been shot dead. There are numerous such examples throughout history when the sporting arena has been used as a platform for silent protest and drew the attention of the world. India, like many other countries, has had its share of political instances in sports as well. Such efforts to disassociate politics from sports are, therefore, outrageously pointless, owing to the kind of passion and enthusiasm it generates in this country, let alone the impact it creates as the most decent and favourable form of dissent.last_img read more
