first_img Prince’s song 1999 includes these lyrics: “2000 zero zero party over oops out of time, So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 1999.” When viewing US stocks today, I feel transported back to 1999. With many warning indicators flashing red and investors behaving crazily, I’m concerned about the next stock market crash.Stock market crash: is this 1999?I remember the dotcom boom and stock market crash very clearly. It was a time of sudden, steep price spikes in dotcom stocks. It was also a time of stretched valuations, as stock prices soared and the Nasdaq tech index rocketed. And it was a time when retail investors piled into the latest hyped, profitless ‘wonder’ stocks, hoping to make big bucks.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…I see the same red flags waving today. Indeed, US volatility — as measured by ‘fear gauge’ the CBOE VIX Index — is much higher today than in 2000. The VIX leapt above 37 earlier this year, almost twice its long-run average. Likewise, US tech valuations look frothy and bubbly. And individual investors, rallied by Reddit thread r/WallStreetBets, push prices of smaller companies around like a turbocharged hedge fund. But when will the next stock market crash arrive? For me, this bull market could run for a while longer.What worries me today?Being cursed with a great memory, I often hark back to past stock market crashes. And what I see today makes me agitated. Younger investors urge me to buy grossly inflated stocks in electric-vehicle makers. Twenty+ years ago, newbies were buying shares in, Webvan and — all of which spectacularly imploded. Today, companies with similar dreams — and histories of large losses — are valued in the tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars. Yikes.Likewise, the number of initial public offerings (IPOs; company flotations) soared last year, as also happened in the late 1990s. There were 538 in 2020, the highest number since 424 new issues in 2000 and 480 in 1999. What’s more, 2020/21’s huge IPO pops (when share prices soar on the first day) echo the dotcom boom. This rush to float before bubbles burst — notably using special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs — prominently features in previous stock market crashes. Overvaluation also troubles me. The S&P 500’s Shiller CAPE Ratio (of inflation-adjusted earnings averaged over 10 years) is currently 35, its highest level in over 20 years. That’s far too rich for my blood.I could be wrong! What will I do?After 12 years of rising markets, the S&P 500 trades today at almost six times the ‘devilish’ low of 666 seen on 6 March 1999. But with the Federal Reserve promising to keep interest rates low, stocks look a better bet than bonds to me. Also, inflation is subdued and interest rates will remain near zero until inflation starts to take off. Thus, although I feel we are already in fantasy territory today, I don’t see this bubble popping this year. Maybe it will happen in 2022/23, but only if investors come to their senses.Meanwhile, how do I aim to make money in these hyped-up markets? To counterbalance my portfolio’s heavy exposure to expensive US stocks, I’m planning to buy a big chunk of still-cheap UK shares in quality businesses. Hence, I’m looking to FTSE 100 firms with strong balance sheets, solid revenues and generous cash dividends. By de-risking my portfolio now, I hope to avoid major losses later when the market crashes! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

first_imgBerlin Bulletin No. 122, Nov. 24 — While [U.S.] Americans try to swallow the prospect of four Trump years, Germans can now wonder, after months of suspense, about the chance of four more Angela Merkel years. Between the two there are certainly huge differences, not only in gender and language.Most obviously, while he spoke often of throwing immigrants out, she was spotlighted for calls to let them in. Only gradually, under great pressure, has she reduced this: not any and all immigrants, only refugees from certain war-torn areas like Iraq and Syria — and not too many more of them.There was pressure from many sides, also within her own Christian Democratic Union (CDU) but far more from its sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), which has a separate status only in [the state of] Bavaria. Usually both work together, but the Bavarians, known abroad for lederhosen, dirndls and the Oktoberfest, always lean further right. Currently losing ground in their own habitat, they are threatening to punish her “leftist leanings.”Such pressures take their toll, not only on her usually cheery countenance but also in the polls. Her personal popularity, now at about 55 percent, is reviving after a record low, but her party stands at only about 35 percent, which hardly guarantees victory in the September election.But Merkel’s current coalition partners, the Social Democrats (SPD), face poll figures stagnating at under 25 percent. Their stout warrior Sigmar Gabriel, far less popular than Merkel, lost even more luster by forcing reluctant followers to support CETA, the Canadian equivalent of the trans-Pacific trade deal TPP and the U.S.-Europe deal TTIP. Luckily, both hang inches away from the final shredder, thanks to worldwide campaigns but also, believe it or not, to disapproval by Donald Trump, even if it may have been for the wrong reasons.Confusion over TrumpTrump’s very ambiguous yet welcome campaign words about meeting Putin and withdrawing NATO from Europe caused storms of confusion here. But while they struck at the underpinning of decadeslong declamations about “our eternal bonds of trans-Atlantic friendship,” they also supplied new footing for people like Defense Secretary Ursula von der Leyen, who yearn to build up a big “European defense force,” separate from the USA and led by a powerful Germany, with its century of valuable experience in “how to defend humane European values against invading hordes.”Now, without British meddling and with France facing calamity, German tanks, fighters (and soon, “Made in Israel” drones) can take the lead, reinforcing right-wing rulers in Poland and the Baltic states and building up strength to within 85 miles of St. Petersburg [Russia], to the furthest reaches of the Black Sea and on to Africa and Asia as well.With a smiling Angela speaking simply and reasonably as ever, we have a one “good cop” and two “bad cop” situation, for Finance Minister Schäuble is still busy pressuring weaker European leaders in the south not to reject austerity fetters but to keep buying big expensive weapons from Germany.But there is also a second “good cop.” While Angela was giving her longtime ally Barack [Obama] a goodbye hug, Germany was also preparing for a line of moving vans to and from its White House equivalent, Bellevue Palace. After February, President Joachim Gauck’s perpetual smile, a triumph of hypocrisy, can soon be forgotten.Who should replace him in this ceremonial job, where the president is supposed to avoid the political scene? Since they had no better offer, Merkel’s crowd okayed a Social Democrat, Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, 60. Handsome, white-haired, with a deliberate way of speaking full of pauses, his one-time promotion of laws against the jobless fully forgotten, he is the most popular man in his party, perhaps because he sometimes seemed more sensible than others in trying to settle conflicts, as in Minsk and the Ukrainian conflict. He will now be kicked upstairs into the columned palace to welcome visiting kings and dignitaries and make nice speeches.Who will oppose Merkel?Without him, the SPD faces the difficult job of finding a candidate to oppose Angela Merkel in the main election. Will it be the unpopular Gabriel? Or perhaps Martin Schulz, now president of the European Parliament, also a smiler with a hidden poniard up his sleeve when Greek or other upstarts try to upset the apple cart. Foreign minister or chancellor — which is he aiming at? We shall see.Media speculation is rife about the vote and its aftermath, with stress on the math, since no party can win enough seats to rule by itself. The CDU may agree to join again with the SPD — only if the SPD will play junior partner again. What about the Greens? Once considered young militants, they have long since cooled down as their well-educated core of voters became successful in their professions or in government jobs.The Greens’ current strongman, Winfried Kretschmann, 68, minister-president in the state of Baden-Württemberg, has become ecologically paler green thanks to his friendship with the area’s powerful Daimler-Benz concern, now facing charges of emission fraud as serious as those hitting Volkswagen. Could the Greens and the CDU join hands? They have done so in some states; some rightist Greens leaders excel in belligerency in world conflicts. But this still seems unlikely.A constant debate concerns any coalition between the SPD, Greens and the LINKE (Left). The math might just work out. But the SPD and the Greens reject any alliance unless the LINKE agrees to support NATO and approve the deployment of Bundestag troops outside Germany.This support goes against the LINKE program. Some insist that any softening on this issue would mean accepting the path of German military expansion which dominated the last century so tragically. It would also sacrifice the distinguishing feature of the LINKE as the Peace Party.Others in the LINKE party, like Thuringian Minister-President Ramelow, call for compromises, in hopes that the LINKE can accomplish more within a government than outside it.This question of such a three-way coalition is now front stage in Berlin, where just such a tripod will take charge next month if approved by all participants (in the LINKE with a referendum of all Berlin members). Already almost certain, it will consist of the present SPD mayor plus four cabinet posts (here called Senators) for the SPD and three each for the Greens and the LINKE.Threat from the far rightBut casting a menacing shadow over the whole political scene is the Alternative for Germany (AfD), whose voters gave it 24 seats (out of 149) in Berlin’s House of Deputies plus seats in all twelve borough councils, where some will even head departments.With a mix of far righters, pro-Nazis, former embezzlers and the like, the AfD will follow the line worked out at their recent national congress: hit out at foreigners, above all Muslims; defend “German nationality and culture” and, by the way, stand for every right-wing tendency from homophobia and anti-abortion to low taxes for the wealthy and a strong military.This may sound familiar. With prospects rising for the extreme right in Austria, the Netherlands, perhaps France and already existing in Hungary and Poland, the prospect is frightening.The main resistance to the alienation, fear and uncertainty feeding this trend should be coming from the LINKE. Sadly, its leaders have often been distracted by internal disagreement and by a neglect of battles for the needs and wishes of working people — not only in parliamentary meetings but in the streets, factories and other centers. There have been some such struggles — but far too few.Happily, perhaps, the LINKE has decided on a candidate of its own for the job of president: professor Christoph Butterwegge, 65, not a party member but a resolute expert on the question of poverty, the forces causing it and the fight against it.Butterwegge knows he has no chance to win against Steinmeier. But he wants to provoke discussion about the social gap between wealthy and poor in an otherwise toothless election debate. Although the Greens have stated they will not support him, but instead probably CDU and SPD candidate Steinmeier, Butterwegge hopes to win over at least some votes from other parties among the many delegates who choose a president — as a good symbol.However, this contest will pale when the slugging begins for the main election in September. Will the LINKE put up a tough fight against social cutbacks and military advances? If so, and only if it does, it could gain ground again and reduce to some degree the threat from the far right.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgOn March 9, 2015, promising musician and singer Anthony Hill was killed by DeKalb County Deputy Robert Olsen in the parking lot of Hill’s Chamblee apartment complex. Hill, 27, an African-American veteran of the Afghanistan war, had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and PTSD as a result of his military experiences. When the drugs prescribed by the Veterans Administration caused his jaw to lock, along with other debilitating effects, he had stopped taking them. ( night, Hill and his fiancee, Bridget Anderson, had plans to celebrate their anniversary. But in the early afternoon, Hill showed up at the apartment complex leasing office, wearing only shorts and no shoes, knocking on the door asking for help.The office staff, accustomed to a polite, well-mannered tenant, were concerned  about his erratic behavior and unsteady posture. They then called 911 seeking help for him. Two maintenance workers responded to his pleas that he didn’t know where he lived and took him back to his apartment.Within a short time, Hill emerged from his second floor balcony naked and proceeded to climb down and wander around the grounds, sometimes crawling in a military style, peering around as if in a battle zone. Again, the two workers approached him, urging Hill to go home before the police came. To which Hill responded, “That’s OK. The police are my friends.”That is when Olsen, who is white, showed up in his patrol car, and Hill, with his arms raised, moved at an uneven pace toward him.Deputy Olsen got out of his car and drew his gun, and, as Hill came closer, yelled for him to stop and fired two bullets into Hill’s body. Anthony Hill died at the scene.Olsen maintains he feared for his life and was forced to shoot the unarmed man.It has taken four-and-a-half years for a jury to hear this testimony, following an indictment of Olsen on multiple charges, including two counts of felony murder and violation of the oath of office.The jury of 12 DeKalb County residents, seven women and five men who reflect the diverse composition of the metro Atlanta county, was seated Sept. 26, and the trial of Robert Olsen finally began.Each witness, whether the leasing office staff or the maintenance workers, affirmed that Anthony Hill did not in any way threaten or frighten them and that they called 911 to get him help.The long-awaited trial is expected to last another week or more.A guilty verdict on the murder charges would be unprecedented in Georgia where almost no police, regardless of the evidence, are ever punished for killing a civilian. WW will continue to report on the trial of Robert Olsen. Justice for Anthony Hill!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A bench comprised by Chief Justice Ravi Shanker and Justice Arun Palli has directed the Union of India, the States of Punjab and Haryana and the Union Territory of Chandigarh Administration to decide the issue after a proper representation is made before them. The court was hearing a PIL filed by Advocate HC Arora. He had contended that the MHA guidelines prescribing for a congregation of up to fifty persons in marriage ceremonies is “counter-productive” to the protective and preventive measures that have been adopted by the Government to tackle the Covid-19 crisis. He had therefore sought for a direction on the Respondent-authorities to reduce this number and further cut-short the gatherings. During the course of hearing, the counsels appearing for the Government assured that the Petitioner’s grievances will be considered and a new policy in this regard may also be framed, if a proper representation is put forth before them. The court therefore disposed of the petition with liberty to the Petitioner to make a representation and directed that a decision thereon shall be taken by the authorities, in accordance with law. The Petitioner thereafter indicated his intentions to move necessary representation before the authorities, within two weeks. Case Details: Case Title: HC Arora v. Union of India & Ors.
