I’d invest £5k in FTSE 100 tech companies during the stock market crash Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Matthew Dumigan | Wednesday, 15th April, 2020 | More on: EXPN SGE 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. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Tech companies around the world have suffered alongside many other industries as a result of the impact of Covid-19 on business.With widespread lockdown restrictions in place as a result of the global pandemic, technology has never been so important for many of us in our daily lives.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…On top of this, regardless of the economic climate, it’s inevitable that technology will continue to become an ever more essential component of the world we live in. But what does all this mean for the tech companies listed in the FTSE 100 index?FTSE 100 tech companiesWell, the FTSE 100 tech stocks have been no exception to the recent plummet in prices during the stock market crash. The FTSE techMARK 100 index has shed around 20% of its value since a mid-February high.Despite the gains posted across the board in recent weeks, it’s impossible to say whether the market has bottomed out. But, while companies are still trading on cheap valuations relative to pre-crash prices, I’d be keeping an eye out for some bargains.For me, tech stocks are unrivalled in terms of their future growth prospects. As an investor, finding tech companies with great future prospects and innovative business strategies will most often result in attractive returns over the long-term.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 tech companies that I think meet the criteria.Sage GroupSage (LSE: SGE) is a British multinational enterprise software company headquartered in the north of England. The company is a global market leader in providing technology to small- and medium-sized businesses, specialising in providing cloud technology and support.The group’s share price has fallen by around 21% in the stock market crash and now trades at a price-to-earnings ratio of 26.10. That’s relatively high compared to many other FTSE 100 stocks but, in my opinion, reflects bright future prospects.The company’s performance was solid in 2019. Organic revenue growth increased 5.6% and the group’s underlying cash conversion reached 129%, indicating strong free cash flow.Despite widespread economic uncertainty and a decline in the share price, Sage’s long-term growth prospects look great to me.According to a recently published annual report, “Sage operates in a total addressable market set to be worth $36bn in FY20 comprising 72m businesses”. That’s a staggering prediction that underscores the potential for the company to grow and expand into new and existing markets.ExperianGlobal technology company Experian (LSE: EXPN) is a market leader in data and analytics. The group’s two main business activities are in consumer services, and business-to-business data and decisioning.The fall in the company’s share price is identical to that of Sage’s, currently sitting at around a 21% drop. Despite this, the P/E ratio still remains noticeably high at around 35.78. However, I think there’s good reason for this.Last year, Experian’s revenue and operating profit were up 6% and 11% respectively. What’s more, revenue increased in both business activities. North America makes up the majority of the company’s revenue, but the Asia Pacific region is growing rapidly.Big data is a colossal market that continues to rapidly expand. Clearly, that means the company is well-set to continue growing and deliver attractive returns over the long term. With a bright future on the cards, I think this FTES 100 tech stock is a solid buy.

Washington, D.C. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is urging residents across the nation to download and use the FEMA smartphone app.  The app is designed to help families prepare for a wide array of natural and man-made disasters, and can help affected Americans recover, should disaster strike.  FEMA officials will be available for interviews to discuss the importance of residents preparing for severe weather, and specific features contained in the app that can help families and individuals stay safe and recover from disasters. According to a recent survey by Pew Research, 40 percent of Americans have used their smartphone to look up government services or information. Additionally, a majority of smartphone owners use their devices to keep up to date with breaking news, and to be informed about what is happening in their community.Some key features of the app include:National Weather Service Alerts: The app enables users to receive weather alerts from the National Weather Service for up to five locations across the nation. This new feature allows users to receive alerts on severe weather happening anywhere they select in the country, even if the phone is not located in the area, making it easy to follow severe weather that may be threatening family and friends.Safety Tips: Tips on how to stay safe before, during, and after over 20 types of hazards, including floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes.Preparation Checklist:  Helps users put together emergency kits and develop family communication plans to determine how they will reunite with loved ones in the event of a disaster.Maps of Disaster Resources: Users can locate and receive driving directions to open shelters and disaster recovery centers.Apply for Assistance: The app provides easy access to apply for federal disaster assistance.Information in Spanish: The app defaults to Spanish-language content for smartphones that have Spanish set as their default language.The latest version of the FEMA app is available for free in the App Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android devices.  For more information visit https://www.fema.gov/mobile-app UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 You have entered an incorrect email address!

“R” Is For Knowing When to Rest Your Back

This is why it is important to recognize when your body may need to take a break, not just from physical activity, but from stress-causing factors in your everyday life. Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment!center_img Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Here are a few signs that you may need to take some time for yourself:You have trouble sleeping at nightWe can’t stress this enough – adequate sleep is vital for your health. Your body is able to restore, relax and refresh itself every night, and how amazing is that? If you have trouble falling asleep for an extended period of time (and a substantial number of people do), it could mean that you have outside stress factors that are beginning to take a toll on your health.Take this as a sign that you need to find new ways to relax; some great options include adding restorative activities to your daily routine, such as swimming, yoga, Tai chi and meditation. It is also wise to talk about your sleeping problems with your doctor. Together, you can find the source of your sleeplessness and create a plan of care to help sleep come naturally again.See our Back to Basics videos for sleeping positions that are best for your back and check out our spine U videos on selecting the best pillows and mattress for your spine.You have consistent aches that won’t go awayIf you have aches that recur frequently, it could be a sign that you’re working your body too hard. When you work out, your muscles tear and have to rebuild themselves. By not giving your muscles enough time to rebuild, these tears can never fully heal and may result in injury and pain.Aches could also mean that you’re holding onto stress. Stress can make your muscles tense up without even you realizing it, and this tension can cause chronic sore or tight muscles. Try this: apply hot and cold therapy to the irritated muscle, and make sure you are practicing proper bending, lifting and twisting techniques throughout the day. If the pain doesn’t go away after two weeks with rest or it begins to intensify, then it’s time to talk with your doctor about possible other causes. [Here is a spine and pain physician that can help.]You get irritable very easilyIf you find yourself getting irritated, angry, sad or tired more often than usual, it may be a sign that your body needs something. This “something” may be nourishing food, sleep, relaxation, and possibly a change of scenery. While it is important to let your body rest, it is just as important to let your mind rest, too. The mind works 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Be sure to give it the nutrients and relaxation that it deserves.By getting enough sleep, incorporating relaxation techniques into your daily routine and taking your required vacation days every year, you can restart and renew your physical and mental health. Incorporating the right amount of rest can also help prevent illness and spinal injuries.

Wintergreen Cabin is a 1,600 sqf cabin built into a steep hillside overlooking a stream with a view to the mountains in the distance. The cabin is anchored into the hill with a concrete base that contains the garage and other utility spaces. The upper floor houses all of the living areas. The south side of the cabin is a single space containing the living/dining/kitchen with large window walls on 3 sides. Decks cantilever off of the concrete base on three sides and allow views into the stream below.  Facing east, the master suite opens out to the stream ravine with glass sliding pocket doors.

The site is a small 300m2 suburban block in south east Melbourne. The brief was to design a new dwelling to accommodate a family of 4 while also including flexible spaces which can change as the children grow and the needs change. A collection of bikes also needed to be accommodated internally and externally as these are a major form of transport for the family.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe budget was very tight so the building areas were kept as compact as possible, and simple cost effective materials used throughout. A 2 storey structure was designed to minimise the building footprint and maximise the amount of garden space.Save this picture!© John GollingsThe strategy was to design a simple cement sheet box with elements which folded out of it to create shading devices and privacy screens where required. The fence unravels itself from the building, folding down from the entry canopy onto the street then winding around to conceal the bin enclosure. Triangular perforations in the fence aim to deter the local graffiti artists as well as allowing light to penetrate. This material is also used as a privacy screen on the 1st floor to prevent overlooking into neighbours’ properties.Save this picture!Floor PlanIn contrast the southern recycled brick wall offers itself as a canvas for the local graffiti artists which reside in the area. Internally it is left exposed internally and is used to store a series of racing bikes.Save this picture!© John GollingsWhile the appearance from the street is a pristine grey sculpted box, in contrast, the interior is rich with texture and colour, reflecting the active life of its users. A simple palette of exposed brick, concrete slab, local timber, ply and laminate are used internally. The unfolding continues in the interior with the Kitchen ceiling wrapping down to become the cabinetry. Stone and timber are spliced together, imitating shadows cast by the canopies externally. Spaces fold and twist over themselves, in both the joinery and tiling, responding to the stretching and folding occurring on the façade.Save this picture!© John GollingsAlong with the bedrooms and living areas, 3 additional spaces were incorporated as flexible zones. Downstairs, one can be used as a separate lounge or bedroom, while the 1st floor space can also be used as a play space or study, depending on the needs of the family at different times. A home office is also incorporated at the end of the brick corridor space, which can be used by either the parent working from home or as the childrens computer area. A shed is carefully concealed on the south of the building, accommodating more bikes and tools for bike builds.Save this picture!© John GollingsEvery millimetre of space has a purpose, although the spaces are flexible enough to change as the family dynamics change over time.Project gallerySee allShow lessTham & Videgård Propose Wooden High-Rise Housing for StockholmUnbuilt ProjectKengo Kuma Wins Competition to Design Metro Station in ParisArchitecture News Share Bike House / FMD Architects OPS Engineers Bike House / FMD ArchitectsSave this projectSaveBike House / FMD Architects Houses Builder: Photographs Projects Photographs:  John Gollingslast_img read more

Currently tax exiles can only stay in Ireland 182 days in one year. The charitable donation level mentioned for the tax exiles in the proposal was €15 million over 10 years, €5 million of which would be paid in the first year.The original proposal was favourably received by the chairman of the government backed Philanthropy Forum and by the Irish minister of finance, Michael Noonan. Other politicians were less supportive of the proposal. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

However in an email to the Star-Telegram on Thursday, he wrote that it was “very unfortunate that the mistakes and actions of a few of our members” caused the chapter to lose its charter.“Our procedure for dealing with any members who did not uphold the values of the fraternity has always been to investigate internally and then take the necessary disciplinary action including immediate removal from the organization,” Reis wrote, according to the Star-Telegram. “We are terribly upset that we were unable to continue this process in order to continue the longstanding tradition of Phi Kappa Sigma at TCU.” TCU students receive evacuation text by mistake Grant McGalliard Facebook Twitter Twitter TCU removes Phi Kappa Sigma for hazing and other misconduct Previous articleMeet the Frogs: Counting down to kick-offNext articleBellaire Drive South detour will continue through September Grant McGalliard RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history + posts last_img read more
