With trading heading towards a close on the final day of November, what an amazing month it’s been. First, Joe Biden’s US election win gave stocks an early lift. Then news of three highly effective Covid-19 vaccines launched share prices into the stratosphere. As I write, the FTSE 100 index has soared by 765 points (13.7%) in November — a record monthly return. Likewise, US stocks have been buoyant this month, with the S&P 500 index leaping by over 350 points (10.8%). Yet the Footsie has shed 1,200 points in 2020, leaving it down almost a sixth (15.9%). That’s why I believe there are still cheap shares hiding in plain sight in the index.Value investing still worksAfter exaggerated reports of its death, value investing came roaring back in November. As investors switched from high-priced, fast-growing tech stocks into economically sensitive sectors, cheap shares in banks, energy companies, and other old-economy industries had a bumper month. Jeremy Grantham, co-founder of asset management giant GMO, said a very powerful line this month. He warned, “The one reality you can never change is that a higher-priced asset will always produce a lower return than a lower-priced asset”. I agree, which is why I buy cheap shares rather than popular stocks. After all, the higher the price you pay, the lower your future returns will be. That’s why I’ll be a value investor for life.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…Cheap shares: L&G looks good to meUntil they bounced back hard this month, Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) shares were having a rotten 2020. Before Covid-19 crashed markets, shares in the widely admired life assurer and asset manager were doing well. At their 52-week peak, they hit 324.7p on 13 December last year. Three months later, during the spring market meltdown, they crashed by 57.5% to a bargain 138p on 19 March.After bouncing back until early June, these cheap shares crumbled again. At 184.5p on 29 October, I said L&G stock was a compelling buy for value investors. So it proved to be. Today, as I write, L&G’s share price is 255.7p, up more than 71p (38.6%) since 29 October. That’s an excellent return in just 31 days, but I expect more from this great British business and its cheap shares.I’d keep buying into this quality companyAlthough it’s been a terrible year for the global economy, L&G has survived much worse, including two world wars and the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. That’s because this venerable British institution’s pedigree stretches all the way back to 1836. Today, L&G has powerful positions in UK protection products and savings, managing over £1trn of assets for more than 10 million customers worldwide. That’s a good spread of risk — and L&G’s fortress-like balance sheet is packed with a range of quality assets.Today, L&G shares are still fairly cheap, but not as ridiculously low-priced as they were in, say, March and October. They trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of around 12.5 and an earnings yield of 8%. Also, they offer a very enticing dividend yield of 6.9% a year, more than double the 3.2% on offer from the wider FTSE 100. That’s why I’d buy this quality stock today, ideally inside an ISA, to enjoy decades of delicious tax-free dividends and capital gains! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Cliff D’Arcy | Monday, 30th November, 2020 | More on: LGEN NWG Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Kristin Chenoweth Talks Returning to Broadway, Vocal Rest & Gifting Planes

first_imgKristin Chenoweth and Jennifer Lopez play neighbors in the new thriller The Boy Next Door and we honestly can’t decide which one we envy more. The Tony winner stopped by Late Night to chat with Seth Meyers about the first time she met J-Lo and what it’s like to be on vocal rest in preparation for a Broadway return in On the Twentieth Century. “About once a night, you gotta shut it down. After I get home at six, I don’t speak.” The upside, as Cheno shows us, is that she’s gotten really great at charades. She also discusses the ridiculous birthday gift she recently got her dad.

Thriving at Home: What Being ‘The Best’ Means to Us

first_imgFacebook155Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Sarah Lane for FirstLight HomeCare – South SoundWhen my husband, Greg, and I told our friends and family we had decided to open FirstLight HomeCare – South Sound, they kept asking us the same question – “What’s your plan?”We heard it over and over again. And since neither of us had ever started a business before, it was a genuine, sincere inquiry. But we didn’t decide to start a local home care agency on a whim. Both of us had experience in successful organizations, I had worked previously placing caregivers in the homes of seniors and Greg had spent six years as president of a thriving non-profit media corporation. We also spent well over a year developing a detailed blueprint to guide us through the launch and growth of our FirstLight business.At the core of the plan was one simple objective – Be The Best.  That is, offer our clients the best possible care and the best service around.Greg and Sarah Lane opened FirstLight HomeCare – South Sound with the goal of serving their community with the best service and care they could.Home care is unlike any other business. Our clients are asking us into their lives and their homes. Their families are placing their trust in us to support and care for the health, safety and security of their loved ones. To Greg and me, the personal commitment we make to our clients and their families is our most important responsibility each and every day.Providing our clients with the best care possible starts with hiring only the very best caregivers. The rigorous hiring process we use focuses on the qualities that make exceptional caregivers and we never compromise on the character screening, drug testing and comprehensive background checks we conduct on every applicant. These high standards are essential to us finding the expert caregivers with a passion for aiding others and whose greatest concern will be the health and well-being of the person for whom they are caring.But how does a home care agency like ours measure whether we are accomplishing our goal of being “The Best”? Well, so far this year, we’ve received two strong indicators that we’re on the right track:Best of Home Care. In January, FirstLight HomeCare – South Sound won two Best of Home Care Awards.  We were proud to be named both a “Provider of Choice” and an “Employer of Choice” for the second year in a row. The Best of Home Care Awards are based upon independent feedback gathered from clients and caregivers by Home Care Pulse, the industry’s leading firm in performance benchmarking and quality satisfaction management. FirstLight HomeCare – South Sound is one of only seven Washington home care agencies to win BOTH awards in 2016 – and the only agency in Thurston County to receive either award.FirstLight HomeCare – South Sound is proud to be named “Best Home Health Care Agency.”Best of South Sound. Then last month, FirstLight HomeCare – South Sound was named “Best Home Health Care Agency” in the 2015 Best of South Sound  The Best of South Sound is voted on by the people in our community, including the clients and families we serve and our colleagues in health care.What makes us most proud of these awards is that both are based upon the independent opinions of others, including those we serve, those who work for us and those we work with, signs that we are achieving our goal of providing “the best” possible care to our clients and their families.Sarah LaneSarah Lane is a certified Home Care Aide and owner of FirstLight HomeCare — South Sound.  To learn more about home care, respite care, dementia care, or any of the non-medical home care services offered by FirstLight HomeCare, give Sarah a call at 360-489-1621 or go to www.southsound.firstlighthomecare.com.last_img read more
