Various experts will all advocate their specific preferences. The truth is that a good approach should encompass many components. Here are my personal two best strategies for investing in the stock market.Invest for long-term growthAll of the best strategies for investing in the stock market should be considered over a period of at least five years. There are certainly shares you can make money out of over a short time if you know what you are doing, but it is riskier and usually requires more initial capital.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…Picking shares for the long term allows you to look at a company’s fundamentals. Though we all wish share prices were driven only by the true strength or weakness of a company, in the short run this is rarely true. Expectations often drive prices.In the long run however, these fluctuations even out so to speak. A company’s true strength should prevail. Read news articles and commentary and don’t be afraid of your own opinions. Have you noticed a new trend? Have your shopping habits changed? Perhaps there are shares worth looking at there.Personally I usually take a ‘top down’ approach. First I consider the industry itself. Even the best company in a dying industry will struggle over the next few years. Similarly, a mediocre choice in a booming sector will probably see its share price grow.Only after I am happy with the industry, do I consider individual stocks. I look for consistent revenue and profit growth. I think low debt is usually a good thing, though this can be very dependent on the industry. I also have a personal preference for firms paying dividends, which takes me to my second strategy…Investing for incomeI consider investing for income one of the best strategies for investing in the stock market for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is quite transparent. Whereas growth for a share price is an unknown, its next dividend payment is far more certain.That is not to say dividends do not change or get cancelled, but if an income share is picked well, the risk of this should be minimised. Finding a share’s current dividend is usually very easy. Likewise filtering for the best returns across shares can be done quickly, though there is more to the choice than just yield.Dividend investing also allows for cumulative interest. Reinvesting dividends in dividend paying shares means that the initial payments themselves earn money. Next time, those payments earn money as well. This is the nature of cumulative interest.If income is your main goal, I look for less risky shares. This means big blue-chip companies like those in the FTSE 100. Again use some of the same criteria as for growth. I wouldn’t want a dividend share in a dying industry.I also look for a consistent history of payouts from the company. Preferably, the firm will have steadily increased its dividend payments over the past five years as well.The truth is, for me these two strategies for investing in the stock market usually come together. I look for dividends in my growth shares, and I want growth in my income stocks.

Home Indiana Agriculture News FDA to Address GMO Misinformation By Hoosier Ag Today – May 5, 2017 SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Included in a budget deal to avert a government shutdown is funding for the Food and Drug Administration for consumer outreach and education regarding agricultural biotechnology. The money is to be used to tout “the environmental, nutritional, food safety, economic, and humanitarian impacts” of biotech crops and their final food products.The bill includes $3 million for the campaign. This comes after more than 50 agriculture and food industry groups signed a letter last month urging the funding to counter “a tremendous amount of misinformation about agricultural biotechnology in the public domain.” It is unclear what the FDA campaign will look like, or when it will launch. The $3 million allocated is little more than a speck in the FDA’s total allocated budget of $2.8 billion.The budget specifies only that the initiative be developed in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and that it include the “publication and distribution of science-based educational information.”Source: NAFB News Service FDA to Address GMO Misinformation Facebook Twitter Previous articlePerdue Planning First Farm Policy SpeechNext articleVincennes Farmer is Finalist for America’s Farmers Mom of the Year Hoosier Ag Today
Comments are closed. Straight talking is the way to win respectOn 8 Aug 2000 in Personnel Today The CIPD (of which I have been a member for over 30 years) has in the past couple of years initiated research into the links between good personnel practices and their impact on the performance of organisations. The results so far are encouraging. Indeed, if it were not so, the very raison d’etre for the personnel department would be challenged.However, the task of taking those results into the board room, of explaining them and gaining acceptance of them is in many respects a potentially even more difficult job.The head of one of the Japanese car giants said 20 years ago, and I paraphrase, “We don’t mind sharing our secrets as to how we achieve progress because we know the West won’t follow our example”. Be that as it may, proving the case for business success based on good personnel strategies is one thing, gaining acceptance and changing the behaviour of organisations accordingly is another. Frankly, we, and some of our academic partners, are much to blame for this. Regular readers of this column will know of my antipathy for the terms human resource, HRM et al, but they are the mere tip of the iceberg when it comes to the way in which we describe our work.We must be open and transparent with the organisations that employ us and to all those whose interests we seek to serve. And this means, among other things, avoiding language that will distance us from the very people we wish to influence – our line managers, chief executive officers, and, of course, the colleagues and fellow employees who work for our various organisations. Hence we should avoid the growing tendency for jargon. In the recent CIPD report, words like “configurational” or phrases like “bundles of policies” are unlikely to be readily understood or accepted by the average line manager, let alone the harassed plant supervisor in a small to medium-sized company – where most people are employed. There is a divide in this context between the big multi-nationals, with their sophisticated organisations and dedicated personnel departments, and the smaller enterprises, but there exists a common failing and that is the use of over-complicated, unclear jargon-ridden language that we use to describe our work and with which we seek to influence others. Let’s face it, a great deal of what we do in the personnel department is, in essence, simple – we should be dealing with people and their problems in a commonsense, unambiguous way to gain mutual advantage. The academics have an important role to play in research and understanding and in establishing the links between good practices and good results, but it is up to us to take their work and translate it into ordinary language if we want to get the messages across. Fail in this regard and we fail ourselves and our profession. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
By Brandon BargerTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—As early as Sunday, Hoosiers will be allowed to legally place a bet on their favorite professional or college game at one of five sites within the state.The Indiana Gaming Commission Wednesday unanimously approved emergency rules that will allow three casinos to offer sports betting on Sept. 1 with two others to follow within the week.Sara Gonso Tait, executive director of the commission, told members that her staff has been working hard since to develop the emergency rules that will allow Indiana to join the ranks of states allowing sports wagering.“In order to capture the black market,” Tait said, “we have to have a competitive regulatory market.”The rules will be in place for 90 days with an option to extend them for another 90 days to give the commission enough time to finalize them.Hoosiers can place bets on Sunday at Indiana Grand Racing and Casino in Shelbyville, Ameristar Casino Hotel in East Chicago, and the Hollywood Casino & Hotel in Lawrenceburg. The Horseshoe Hammond will take sports bets on Sept. 4 while the French Lick Resort and Casino will start up its operations on Sept. 6.In April, the Indiana General Assembly approved sweeping changes to the state’s gambling laws. In addition to sports betting, lawmakers passed a law allowing the move of two Gary casinos from Buffington Harbor to an inland site near Interstate 90 and a separate, new casino in Vigo County.Specific plans are subject to the approval of the Gaming Commission and on Wednesday, members voted unanimously to OK Spectacle Entertainment’s proposal for a 225,000-square-foot Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Gary. It will replace two waterfront Majestic Star riverboat casinos.John Keeler, a former Republican lawmaker from Indianapolis and representative of Spectacle, and Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson told members of the commission that the project will be done in two stages. The first will include the construction of the casino with a 2,000 seat entertainment venue as well as parking. The second stage will include building a 200-room hotel that will be connected to the casino as well as a parking structure.Keeler told the commission that the proposal meets requirements that the $300 million casinos will create 1,600 jobs during phase one with an additional 200 jobs being added with phase two. They are hoping that phase one will be completed by Dec. 31, 2020, which Keeler called a “very ambitious date, but with a little bit of luck and some good weather, we think we can make that.”Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson told the members that the casino move frees up Buffington Harbor for development.“We believe that the highest and best use of that area is to be the development of a multimodal transportation system that really capitalizes on our rail and our highways that run through and adjacent to the area,” she said.Commission member Joseph Svetanoff, from northwest Indiana, voiced his support for the project.“I am extremely excited about what the future holds for this project,” Svetanoff told his fellow commissioners.Tait said the commission is now accepting proposals for the new Vigo County casino until Dec. 1 and will enlist Indiana University to help them review their potential impact on the community. Vigo County voters will be asked to approve the casino in the November election.The commission will next meet on Nov. 8 at the site of the Horseshoe Southern casino.FOOTNOTE: Brandon Barger is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Tropicana-Evansville Not Approved To Start Sportsbook At This Time
