Two FTSE 100 stocks I’d like to buy more of during this bear market Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Edward Sheldon owns shares in Diageo and St. James’s Place. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Diageo. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The bear market that we’re in is likely to throw up some amazing opportunities for long-term investors. In the days and weeks ahead, volatility could remain high. But those buying stocks while share prices are low should be rewarded in the long run.With that in mind, here’s a look at two FTSE 100 stocks I’d like to buy more of while the market is depressed.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…DiageoOne stock I definitely want to buy more of in the current bear market is the world’s largest spirits maker, Diageo (LSE: DGE). Diageo owns a fantastic portfolio of brands including Johnnie Walker, Tanqueray, and Smirnoff. In my view, DGE is one of the most attractive stocks in the entire FTSE 100. It has a brilliant long-term track record of 21 consecutive dividend increases. It also has an attractive growth story, as it’s poised to benefit from the rising level of wealth in emerging markets.I do expect the coronavirus to impact Diageo, given that bars and pubs in many countries have been closed. Rival Pernod Ricard – the world’s second-largest international spirits maker behind DGE – warned earlier this week that it is likely to take a hit of around 20% to its current operating profit.However, I believe the setback will be temporary. Eventually, we’ll get through this challenging time, and alcohol sales will pick up again. Importantly, the long-term growth story associated with the aspirational nature of emerging markets consumers remains intact.Diageo shares fell to near 2,000p earlier this week, a level not seen since 2016. At that price – which equates to a trailing price-to-earnings ratio of less than 16 – I think the stock is a steal. I’m hoping it falls back to those levels again so I can add to my position at a bargain price.St. James’s PlaceAnother FTSE 100 stock that I’d like to add to in this bear market is wealth manager St. James’s Place (LSE: STJ). Like Diageo, it has a great long-term track record, having registered 16 consecutive dividend increases. It also has an attractive growth story – demand for trusted face-to-face financial advice should remain strong in the years ahead as the UK’s Baby Boomers retire and access their pensions.The recent stock market crash to impact near-term profits at St. James’s Place, as the company’s fees are linked to the size of its clients’ portfolios. The current UK lockdown is also likely to have a negative effect on the group’s ability to generate new business. This will certainly be a setback for the company in the short term. However, I do not expect the coronavirus outbreak to have a long-lasting impact on the company. If anything, the elevated stock market volatility we have seen recently could increase demand for trusted financial advice.STJ shares have taken a beating recently in the stock market crash, falling from near 1,200p to around 750p. At that level, which equates to a trailing P/E ratio of less than 15, I believe there’s a lot of value on offer for long-term investors.

TAGSFriday the 13ththeconversation.com Previous articleOrange County budget workshops begin next weekNext articleThe Orange County Clerk of Courts may have money for you Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By Kylie Sturgess, Tutor and Researcher Radio Broadcasting, Murdoch University and first published on theconversation.com.Of all the days to stay in bed, Friday the 13th is surely the best. It’s the title of a popular (if increasingly corny) horror movie series; it’s associated with bad luck and it’s generally thought to be a good time not to take any serious risks.Even if you try to escape it, you might fail, as happened to New Yorker Daz Baxter. On Friday 13th in 1976, he decided to just stay in bed for the day, only to be killed when the floor of his apartment block collapsed under him. There’s even a term for the terror the day evokes: Paraskevidekatriaphobia was coined by the psychotherapist Donald Dossey, a specialist in phobias, to describe an intense and irrational fear of the date.Unfortunately, there is always one Friday 13th in a year, and sometimes there are as many as three. Today is one of them – and another comes in July. But no matter how many times the masked killer Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th returns to haunt our screens, this fear is in our own minds rather than any basis in science. One study did show a small rise in accidents on that day for women drivers in Finland, but much of the problem was due to anxiety rather than general bad luck. Follow-up research found no consistent evidence of a rise in accidents on the day, but suggested that if you’re superstitious, it might be better not get behind the wheel of a car on it anyway.The stigma against Friday 13th likely comes from a merging of two different superstitions. In the Christian tradition, the death of Jesus took place on a Friday, following the presence of 13 people at the Last Supper. In Teutonic legend, the god Loki appears at a dinner party seated for 12 gods, making him the outcast 13th at the table, leading to the death of another guest.E lsewhere in the world, 13 is less unlucky. In Hinduism, people fast to worship Lord Shiva and Parvati on Trayodashi, the 13th day in Hindu month. There are 13 Buddhas in the Shingon sect of Buddhism, and there is mention of a lucky 13 signs, rather than unlucky, in The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation.In Italy, it is more likely to be “heptadecaphobia”, or fear of the number 17, that leads to a change of plans. In Greece, Spain, and Mexico, the “unlucky” day is not Friday 13th, but Tuesday 13th.In China, the number four is considered significantly unlucky, as it is nearly homophonous to the word “death”. In a multicultural country like Australia, you may find hotels and cinemas missing both 13th and fourth floors, out of respect for the trepidation people can have about those numbers.The lure of superstitionSuperstitions were one of the first elements of paranormal beliefs studied in the early 1900s. While many are now just social customs rather than a genuine conviction, their persistence is remarkable.If you cross your fingers, feel alarmed at breaking a mirror, find a “lucky” horseshoe or throw spilled salt over your shoulder, you are engaging in long-held practices that can have a powerful impact on your emotions. Likewise, many students are now heading towards their semester exams. In the lecture rooms, they may take lucky charms such as a particular pen or favorite socks.In sports, baseballer Nomar Garciaparra is known for his elaborate batting ritual. Other sports people wear “lucky gear” or put on their gloves in a particular order. The great cricket umpire David Shepherd stood on one leg whenever the score reached 111. These sorts of superstitions are humorously depicted in the film Silver Linings Playbook. It’s interesting to note that it’s often the successful athletes who have these superstitions and stick to them.Lucky charms can make you feel good. Shutterstock.comOne key reason for the persistence of superstition is a psychological concept called a “discriminative stimulus”. An example of this is the gambler who notices he always seem to win when betting on “lucky 7”, and forgets all the times that same number has not been in his favor.Charms do work in a fashion. If you wear your lucky underwear and succeed enough, you will feel distressed that actually impedes your performance if you’re not wearing them. This then influences your performance – an “A” seems guaranteed because you walk in fully prepared.But if you’re feeling a little anxious this Friday, try to remember there’s nothing different about it to any other day.

Gary Truitt SHARE SHARE Wet Spring Will Sap NitrogenBret MinettWe begin another week with wet soil across Indiana. As a result nitrogen, loss may be accelerated. With corn yields being down last year, many growers were hoping there might be some residual nitrogen in the soil to help with this year’s crop. But thanks to a wet winter and spring that is not likely the case, according to Brant Minett with Becks Hybrids, “I am not so sure there is much nitrogen left, certainly in the nitrate form which is the form the plant most readily uses. This is also the form that most quickly goes away under wet conditions.” He said growers should not make an assumption, but rather test their fields this spring. He warns that growers should not cut back on starter fertilizer this spring, even if they feel they have a good supply of N in the soil, “We also use starter fertilizer as a vehicle for some of our micro nutrients like sulfur, magnesium, and zinc; so if guys cut back on the starter, it might hurt his delivery of those micro nutrients.” More recommendations at the Beck’s web site. Minett warns, if you did a soil test last fall, the results may be much different than what you would find this spring, “If a guy has not done a test this spring, his test results from last fall are not very meaningful.” At some Beck’s PFR sites last fall, tests showed considerable nitrogen remaining in the soil, but tests this spring have shown very little is left.” Wet Spring Will Sap Nitrogen By Gary Truitt – Apr 28, 2013 Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Wet Spring Will Sap Nitrogen

While movers from these cities cited a need to find less expensive living quarters in general, Redfin found that these residents were not moving to the city of Los Angeles proper. Rather, they were moving to the county, to more affordable markets like Riverside, in the Inland Empire.The move out of Denver is a sort of B-side to the migration to Denver just a few years ago. “Denver peaked at 40,000 net domestic migrations in 2015, meaning that many more people moved to Denver than left,” the report stated. “Looking ahead, we expect Denver to see a negative net migration, or a loss of residents, in the 2019 Census.”Meanwhile, in Seattle, the Census data reveal peak net domestic migration in 2016, but since last October, “more Seattleites are looking at homes elsewhere than the other way around,” the report stated.The ironic part is that almost half the residents of Eugene who looked at new homes in Q1 looked mainly to Seattle as their next market. Last year, 9 percent of Seattle residents looked elsewhere. The national average for outflow in Q1 was 24 percent.Phoenix was another top destination for both Seattle and Denver in the quarter. That city had the largest net gain looking to move to the area from elsewhere, Redfin found. Unsurprisingly, the interest in Phoenix had to do with affordability. The median home sale price in Phoenix was $257,000 in April. That compares to $415,000 in Denver and $580,000 in Seattle. “The rate of home-price growth in Denver and Seattle is staggering, with Denver up 64 percent and Seattle up 76 percent over the last five years—more than double the national growth rate of 37 percent,” the report stated. “They also both consistently hold the top spots for the fastest housing market, in terms of how long homes stay on the market. These competitive forces serve as a likely cause for the uptick in out-migration.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas.
