Time-poor investor? Here’s how I aim for share gains without obsessing

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The process of investing can be absorbing and fun. And it can be dangerous if I don’t do enough work. That’s me paraphrasing something Peter Lynch, the outperforming fund manager, wrote in one of his books. And my own experience over the years has revealed to me the truth in that utterance!Why I’m not an obsessive investorBut even though I’m keen to build up my wealth over the long term, I’m not prepared to obsess over my investments to the exclusion of all else. And, fortunately, I don’t have to. Awesome investor Lord John Lee, for example, gave his investment book the title How to Make a Million — Slowly. And he’s invested his way to several of them in his lifetime. On top of that, he’s enjoyed a long and successful parliamentary career, as well as holding several public and private chairmanships and positions.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…However, by not doing enough work with research and stock analysis, I can end up obsessing over my losing positions! Yet even that statement is an over-simplification. The world of investing isn’t a straight choice between black or white — there’s grey and also a whole rainbow of colours in the middle. Or, to express it another way, the volume control doesn’t just move from one to 10 — there are all the numbers in the middle to move through as well. So, investing is like most choices in life, whether we are talking life partners, political views, TV programmes, or anything else.Nothing is guaranteedFor example, I can research and analyse the stuffing out of stocks and still maybe end up sitting on a clutch of underwater positions. And I can shoot from the hip and buy random, unresearched shares and sometimes make a killing.But over the long haul, I know dedication to learning and self-development can pay off. Investing is a long game rather than a punt at a fast buck. And in the pursuit of compounding gains, I’m putting sustained efforts into improving my investment skills. And one of the best teachers is experience. But that’s only beneficial if I learn the lessons from my mistakes and feed them back into my investment process. It’s not the only way to learn though. Successful investors are generally fond of sharing their experiences (unsuccessful investors, less so). And there’s a whole library of books out there dedicated to the art and science of the process of investing.Learning and applyingFor example, the so-called father of value investing, Benjamin Graham, wrote a great book called The Intelligent Investor. He’s well known now because Warren Buffett said that book was the best on investing he’d ever read. And it framed Buffett’s own investment career. In fact, Buffett studied under, and then worked for, Graham early on in his own career.Graham was a successful investor himself. But investing, and writing books about his methods, formed only a part of his interests. Graham enjoyed many activities in life and put plenty of his time into each. So, with some spare time for money management, I’d dive right in and invest. And I’d read and learn from everything written about it by Peter Lynch, Lord John Lee, Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett and others. Those twin pillars form my process for targeting gains from shares without obsessing.

Stade Francais are out-spending Top 14 rivals in the transfer market

first_img Stade Francais are out-spending Top 14 rivals in the transfer marketFirst came multi-millionaire Mourad Boudjellal, then billionaires Mohed Altrad and Jacky Lorenzetti. Now, another mega-rich owner has turned Top 14 spending on its head: Stade Français’ Capri-Sun king Hans-Peter Wild.Dr Wild bought the Parisian club in May 2017, after the failed merger with Racing 92. Almost exactly a year later, what the club’s marketeers brand a r(e)volution has begun. Recruitment has long been top of Stade’s to-do list. “We need top players,” Wild told Le Figaro‘s Sport24. “And we’ll get some. We bear the name of the French capital and the responsibility to be worthy of that name. The objective is to be French champions in three years… returning Stade Français to its past glories.”That is not just talk. Over three years, Wild has pledged to put €30 million of his money where his mouth is. His willingness to spend for success is beyond anything even the Top 14 has seen. And, it turns out, pegging existing Stade stars – including Jules Plisson, Djibril Camara, Sekou Macalou, Jonathan Danty, Paul Gabrillagues, Arthur Coville and Alexandre Flanquart – to long-term contracts early on in the season just gone was merely a quiet-yet-firm statement of intent.Plenty to applaud: Player like Jules Plisson have signed on long-termOnly recently, with a mostly French backbone secure, has the scale of Stade’s ambition been revealed. They spent €700,000 to steer Yoann Maestri away from his pre-contract with La Rochelle, and have dug deeper still – possibly up to €800,000 worth of deep, in fact – to get Gaël Fickou out of the final year of his Toulouse deal. That figure had even Racing boss Lorenzetti balking. But not Wild, who appears not to negotiate beyond asking “how much?” and slapping down a big pile of cash.Related: Stade Francais hire Heyneke MeyerThat’s not a statement. It’s yelling from the rooftops. And it’s not the end. Argentinian fly-half Nicolas Sanchez and London Irish scrum half Piet Van Zyl have recently signed, while Stade are linked to Springbok prop Tendai Mtawarira. Word is the club are also prepared to pay Bordeaux more than €1 million for scrum-half Baptiste Serin, who has a year left on his contract. Bègles’ boss Laurent Marti may be reluctant to part with his star player, but risks losing him for nothing if he hesitates for long. Once a player is in the the final year of his contract, he’s fair game for predatory clubs. Owner Hans-Peter Wild is splashing the cash in a bid for future French glory, writes James Harrington Wild is not the first Top 14 boss to play the transfer market. In 2010, Racing paid Bayonne more than €500,000 for the signature of a young Benjamin Fall. But although he’s not the first, Wild is accelerating the Top 14’s charge down the football transfer rabbit hole. Last year, Altrad forked out €1 million to take Louis Picamoles to Montpellier after a year in the Premiership with Northampton. Earlier this year, Altrad also paid a reported €1.5 million to release the ‘retired’ Johan Goosen from his Racing deal.The man with the money: German owner Hans-Peter WildOnly Montpellier and Racing 92 can keep up with the breakneck financial pace Wild is setting – and those two sides are in the Top 14 semi-finals, having finished first and second in the regular season. Even Toulon, once the modern spiritual home of rugby Galacticos, have fallen by the wayside.After failing to reach the last four for the first time since 2011, Toulon president and the league’s comic-book baddie Boudjellal repeated a mantra he had first hinted at last season: “The model I built and which was copied a lot, died tonight. “We have to move on. We’ll see if the people of Toulon adhere to a new model. We’re going to have to give Toulon back to the people of Toulon.”End of an era: Toulon bigwig Mourad Boudjellal has hinted at big changesRoughly translated, it’s a repeat of a promise he first made in March 2017, to go back to basics – via the academy – and build a home-grown side capable of challenging for the title. But then, as now, under the positive-sounding ‘Made in France’ promise it was close to an admission of defeat. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img On his way: Gael Fickou will head for Stade after they bought out his Toulouse contract The inconvenient truth is Toulon cannot keep up with the spending power of the Altrads, Lorenzettis and Wilds of the Top 14. Nor will they be the only club trailing in the wake of these mega-money sides. What Boudjellal did in the ProD2 more than a decade ago – what Steve Lansdown did with Bristol last season – is being inflated in France to levels beyond the reach of all but the richest rugby playboys.Before anyone gets over-dramatic, this won’t kill rugby. It won’t kill the Top 14. But we’d all better be prepared for a new French rugby order.last_img read more

That stat alone tells you everything about the magnitude of the task facing Bath in today’s semi-final at Sandy Park (4.30pm).Already booked in for a Champions Cup final next weekend, Chiefs seem to have taken their ‘pick and jam’ game in the red zone to even greater heights this season. “I don’t think I’ve seen a better team in world rugby than Exeter when they get five yards out,” said Sam Warburton after their Euro semi-final defeat of Toulouse.There’s a lot more to Chiefs than that, not least the explosive power and intelligent game management personified by the Simmonds brothers, but it is perhaps Exeter’s calling card.And yet no team is closer in style to the Devon outfit than Bath, whose post-lockdown winning streak has been underpinned by set-piece solidity and the sort of short-range execution we’ve come to expect from their opponents this afternoon. Beno Obano’s try at Saracens last weekend is just the latest example.Bath battled hard for a draw at Sarries but must eradicate the errors. They squandered two gilt-edged chances to go three scores up and the momentum shifted when Anthony Watson kicked out on the full in midfield. Conceding penalties in your own half, and thus the field position to set up lineout drives, is to invite a heap of trouble.On the charge: Bath’s Beno Obano has had a superb season to push his case for England honours (Getty)They qualified for today’s semi only after Sale forfeited their final fixture. That decision was made on Wednesday morning, causing disruption to both camps’ preparations. Bath trained at the start of the week for a match they knew might not take place. Exeter trained not knowing if it would be Sale, Bath or Bristol who rocked up at Sandy Park today.Related content: Sale cancellation puts Bath into play-offsChiefs have used 57 different players since the league resumed in mid-August, but today’s side is virtually the same 23 that defeated Toulouse a fortnight ago.Jack Nowell misses out with a foot injury, so Olly Woodburn deputises. Ollie Devoto, another former Bath player, replaces Ian Whitten at centre and up front Jacques Vermeulen returns to the fold in place of Sam Skinner, who drops to the bench. At stake is a place in the Twickenham final on 24 October.“Our guys have looked good in training this week and I think we’re ready to go,” said Chiefs DoR Rob Baxter. “I often say to the players, nobody will win a competition like this again. In our case, we actually have the option of two competitions. I just hope and pray there won’t be a scenario where we play big semi-finals and finals behind closed doors again, nor do we have midweek games, back-to-back games, European games back-to-back, because it is tough.“That said, our guys are coming through these experiences very well. If we have the three weeks we really want and need as a club, this will be something that lives with me for the rest of my life. And it will be something we’re all able to talk about with a lot of pride.”One for the camera: Olly Woodburn scores Exeter’s seventh try against Bath in March (Getty Images)Bath’s last major trophy was 12 years ago and this is their first Premiership semi-final for five years. They will be every bit as driven as their hosts. They carry with them the confidence of a long unbeaten away record, their last defeat on the road – a heavy one – coming at Sandy Park just before the season was suspended in March.Back in the last years of amateurism, it was Bath who sat top of the pile and used to mop up in semi-finals and finals.“All the players are hugely proud to be part of a club that has the heritage it does,” skipper Charlie Ewels told RW. “But we also want to write our own history. We want to be the Bath team of the Twenties, the 2020s means winning. Much as we’re proud of being part of a club with our heritage, that should motivate you to want to do it again.”DID YOU KNOW? Bath have lost just 17 lineouts on their own throw in the Premiership this season – almost half as many as the next best team (Worcester, 32)Bath make three changes from the side that trooped off the pitch at Allianz Park convinced they had blown their play-off chances. Joe Cokanasiga, recovered from a knee injury, makes his first start since England’s World Cup pool win against USA in September last year.Cameron Redpath comes into midfield in place of Josh Matavesi, who is on the bench. And Tom Ellis wears the six shirt in place of Mike Williams, whose maul defence was a feature at Sarries before the pressure told in the final quarter.When the sides last met in March, Exeter scored eight tries in a 57-20 mauling, Woodburn and Sam Simmonds each crossing twice. The referee was Luke Pearce, who takes the whistle again today. Bath did win 13-10 in round two, nearly a year ago now, and not many teams have done that against Chiefs this season. Watch highlights of the last meeting here.Exeter: Stuart Hogg; Olly Woodburn, Henry Slade, Ollie Devoto, Tom O’Flaherty; Joe Simmonds (capt), Jack Maunder; Alec Hepburn, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Harry Williams, Jonny Gray, Jonny Hill, Dave Ewers, Jacques Vermeulen, Sam Simmonds.Replacements: 16 Jack Yeandle, 17 Ben Moon, 18 Tomas Francis, 19 Sam Skinner, 20 Jannes Kirsten, 21 Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, 22 Gareth Steenson, 23 Ian Whitten.Bath: Anthony Watson; Ruaridh McConnochie, Jonathan Joseph, Cameron Redpath, Joe Cokanasiga; Rhys Priestland, Ben Spencer; Beno Obano, Tom Dunn, Will Stuart, Josh McNally, Charlie Ewels (capt), Tom Ellis, Sam Underhill, Taulupe Faletau.Replacements: 16 Jack Walker, 17 Lewis Boyce, 18 Christian Judge, 19 Elliott Stooke, 20 Miles Reid, 21 Will Chudley, 22 Josh Matavesi, 23 Tom de Glanville.center_img Previous meeting: lock Jonny Hill is tackled during Exeter’s league win over Bath in March (Getty Images) Can’t get to the shops?

On a flat site, surrounded by Pecans and abundant vegetation, we were requested to plan a compact efficient house, which will cope successfully with the unique weather conditions characteristic of the Izrael valley. The clients visioned a modest house that will encourage an intimate family atmosphere, and will be easy to maintain. Save this picture!© Luciano SantandreuTwo major issues determined the positioning of the house on the lot – the advantages of the south facade in the given climate, and the need to maintain privacy in a corner lot situated in a central location in the village. These issues dictated an elongated structure oriented north/south, with maximum openings towards the south, and a certain closure towards the street. Save this picture!© Luciano SantandreuIn accordance with the clients, the house was designed in simple clean lines – two perpendicular volumes, truly expressing the division between public and private realms in the house. Inspired by the building materials characteristic of the agricultural sheds in the village, we chose to use aluminum cladding on the house’s facades.

Drop in Garda numbers prompting bad behaviour

James Collins.He was speaking after being contacted by city centre residents and members of the local business community, who are worried about rising levels of anti-social behaviour.“The fact is, since 2010, there has been a 53 per cent cut in the number of Community Gardaí operating in the city’s Garda stations. We used to have 80 Community Gardaí operating out of four stations in the city. Successive Fine Gael Justice Ministers have allowed the number of Community Gardaí in the city drop significantly.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “At the end of 2017, just 28 were based out of three stations. “It is no coincidence that there has been a rise in anti-social behaviour. If these specialist Gardaí aren’t working with at-risk young people, more of them will start engaging in anti-social behaviour,” he concluded.More about crime and court here.
