Image source: Getty Images I think the FTSE 100 is a good place to start investing in UK stocks, and this is why. Firstly, the UK stock market contains over 500 companies ranging from the best of the best to a poor excuse for a business. The FTSE 100 is the most well-known UK financial index, followed by the FTSE 250. Together they make up the FTSE 350.The top 100 UK listed companies, measured by market capitalization, are in the FTSE 100 and the next 250 in the FTSE 250. Both these indexes contain quality UK stocks that have reached a level of acceptance in society and thus a notable market cap.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…Of course, that’s not to say there aren’t a few questionable companies in the FTSE 350, but on the whole it’s a fairly good starting point for choosing quality companies to invest in for the long term.The next well-known UK stock index is the FTSE AIM All-Share. It has a few popular companies, such as ASOS, Boohoo, and Fevertree Drinks, but it also contains a raft of penny shares that are best avoided by the novice investor for their high levels of risk.Using a checklist to start investingI think the key to successful investing is choosing businesses that offer value to both shareholders and consumers. That way they’re more likely to be successful far into the future.When I’m looking for stocks to invest in, here are a few things I consider:A competent team at the helm, operating with integrity.I like to understand the business and where it stands in the current and future economic environment.I look for a business with an edge on its competition.A dividend is a nice bonus, if it doesn’t detract from the strength of the balance sheet.Competent teamBillionaire investor Warren Buffett is a good example to look to when planning a long-term investing strategy. He’s been in the game for several decades, and his phenomenal wealth paints a picture of success. While Buffet himself gets the credit for his company, Berkshire Hathaway’s wins, it’s not just him behind its success. His colleague and good friend, Charlie Munger, is also a major cog in the wheel. Their investing wingmen, Todd Combs and Ted Weschler, are very good at their jobs too. The integrity at the top goes a long way to instilling investor faith and keeping shareholders on board.Understanding UK stocksIt’s easy to get caught up in the hype surrounding a new or exciting-looking business. But I think it’s important to take the time to understand the businesses I’m investing in. I want to hold my investments for the long term and for that reason I want to be sure I’m investing in something that’s going to outpace the competition and bring me decent shareholder returns.Another of Buffett’s nuggets of wisdom is to invest in a business you understand. He really understands the insurance industry, and it’s become one of his most lucrative investments.I think the FTSE 100 is a good place to start when choosing the best shares to buy now because it offers established companies with a global reach.

Do not be surprised of the traditional three of Leinster, Munster and the Ospreys usurp Glasgow Warriors and the Scarlets to climb into the playoffs places.Neck on the block: It’s hard to see past Ulster. They have been building towards something big in the last few years and the Pro12 title should be tucked away in the trophy cabinet at Ravenhill in May.Heineken CupThere is so much emotion here. So much history. So much talent. So much pressure.Taxingly, Harlequins really are competing on all fronts and they have a genuine chance in the Heineken Cup. As do Toulon, Clermont Auvergne and Ulster. Leicester put themselves in the frame because they have more bouncebackability than Flubber wrapped in rubber bands, but my gut is saying one of Clermont or Ulster will stand up and do it this time.Neck on the block: The head has a feeling Clermont will edge it.New blue generation: Maxime MachenaudSix NationsWe can rule out Italy and Scotland right away, and I would thank you not to dwell too much on them. Ireland and Wales, too, for that matter.It is a straight shoot-out between England and France already. England have three home matches; France have the undeniable ability. Behind the scenes there is talk of a Scottish wooden spoon and the new generations of Irish and Welsh players, but it may remain behind those scenes.Scotland should scrape past Italy and Wales should be better than their last showings. Ireland will pick up a few wins and Italy will run at least one contender perilously close, but the smart money says it is down the big dogs, England and France.Neck on the block: It is likely that with the shake of the hips and a Gallic shrug Les Bleus will be first past the post. Just.Top 14The millionaire’s playthings at Toulon are leading the Top 14 charge. Toulouse have pedigree and another stellar squad. Clermont are also there. The current top three are impressive. In truth, the Top 14 may be the best league for the neutral and there are more familiar names in there than a game of Cluedo. It is rough, it is ready and boasts magnificent levels of skill and brutality. The big squads thrive because they can cope with casualties.Neck on the block: Toulon are finally going to live up to the pay packet. Cup holders: The Premiership race between Harlequins, Saracens and Leicester will go to the wireBy Alan DymockGET THE chopping block ready. Remove the ceremonial stretching-rings. It’s time to put my neck on the line.The season has, so far, provided very few genuine shocks. However, as all competitions enter the business end in a few months time, the increased impact of collisions and desperation in the faces of season-wearied professionals will ensure the edge of our seats will be as worn out as Emeli Sandé after her Olympics sing-athon.So how will it all pan out? Well, I’m not Back to the Future’s Biff, with a betting almanac from the future, but I’m ready to have a go…Aviva PremiershipThe Premiership is a three horse race. This much we already know.However, with Harlequins trying not to tear last year’s winning blueprint and Leicester Tigers wanting success so badly they may actually burst a collective blood vessel, do not be surprised if Saracens are the ones that hold their nerve.Sarries may not finish top of the league come playoff time, but they might just grind their way to another title.As for relegation: it looks like two flogged horses prone at the back of the field.London Welsh have hustled and shown a desire that has meant more than their modest quality and history combined. They should be safe. Yet, London Irish and Sale Sharks are both in deep doo-doo.Sale have as much day-to-day consistency as an amnesiac ‘traveller’, but they are willing to try anything to stay up. They have options, seemingly bottomless pockets and enough of a hairdryer to scare them into losing bonus points, at least.Irish, on the other hand, have defended woefully thus far. They look incapable of outscoring their opposition and may see themselves scored out of the Aviva Premiership.Neck on the block: Sarries to bring the Premiership back to the, er, Copthall Stadium.Stand up: Pienaar is a key player for UlsterRaboDirect Pro12Last year the Ospreys took the title. The season before that Munster won and Ospreys won it the year before that.It would seem that Leinster, the team who have impressed the most in the Heineken Cup in recent years, are due a Pro12 win. Yet they have been frantically treading water this term devoid of their returning star turns. They are just in touching distance of the playoffs, alongside those pesky Ospreys.

Facebook Twitter Donnelly: EPA’s Move Towards Cutting US Biofuels “Short-Sighted” By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 2, 2017 Facebook Twitter Home Energy Donnelly: EPA’s Move Towards Cutting US Biofuels “Short-Sighted” U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly expressed major concern about the Environmental Protection Agency’s Notice of Data Availability considering possible cuts to biofuels blending volumes for 2018 and 2019. These cuts would undercut Hoosier farmers and biofuel producers who provide American-made energy, improve our domestic energy security, and support Indiana’s economy.Donnelly, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, said, “Biofuels are a critical component of an all-in energy strategy. Biofuels are American-grown energy that support farmers in Indiana, while improving our country’s energy independence. The EPA’s move towards undercutting biofuels is short-sighted and totally misses the mark. At a time of international tumult, we should be supporting this renewable, American energy, not undermining it.”Earlier this year, Donnelly helped introduce the bipartisan American Renewable Fuel and Job Creation Act with 15 Senators including Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA), which would extend the biodiesel tax credit, an important clean-fuel incentive, for three years and reform the incentive by transferring the credit from the blenders to the producers of biofuels. The switch would ensure that the tax credit incentivizes domestic production and taxpayers are not subsidizing imported fuel.Donnelly also helped introduce the bipartisan Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act with Senators Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA), which would extend the Reid vapor pressure (RVP) waiver to ethanol blends above 10 percent. This would increase market access opportunities for higher blends of ethanol. It would allow retailers across the country to sell E15 and other higher-ethanol/gasoline fuel blends year-round, increasing regulatory certainty and eliminating confusion at the pump.Source: Donnelly Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 2, 2017Next articleGluten Free Wheat Near Reality Hoosier Ag Today SHARE SHARE

The price gap between median rent in Manhattan and Brooklyn shrank to $171 in November 2020. (iStock)As Manhattan apartments got expensive, renters moved to Brooklyn as an alternative — and in doing so, narrowed the price gap between the two boroughs over the years.The pandemic has accelerated that trend. The gap between median rent in Manhattan and Brooklyn shrank to $171 in November 2020, the New York Times reported, citing data from appraisal firm Miller Samuel. That’s the smallest gap since the firm began tracking in 2008.It’s almost a flipping of the script for the boroughs. In February 2009, the median rent in Brooklyn was $1,495 cheaper than across the East River. The difference fell to $210 in February 2014, but Manhattan’s condo boom changed that.Read moreWhat’s in store for NYC’s resi market in 2021Exodus over? NYC expected to turn corner in AprilManhattan’s sales, rental markets hit new highs As buyers picked up shiny new units as investment properties, they listed them on the rental market for exuberant prices. “A lot of $10,000 to $20,000 rental units … skewed Manhattan rents higher,” Miller told the Times. That left Manhattan median rents $777 higher, although the effect faded as the luxury market softened. By 2019, the gap had fallen to $534.Then, as Manhattanites fled the pandemic-stricken borough in a quest for more indoor and outdoor space last year, vacancies brought prices in the borough down. Though the difference between Manhattan and Brooklyn rents has grown since November, it’s difficult to predict what’s to come as the New York City exodus becomes an influx again.“Since the fall, both boroughs have been seeing unusually heavy lease-signing activity,” said Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel, “which is a baby step in prices beginning to stabilize.”[NYT] — Danielle BalbiContact Danielle Balbi Share via Shortlink Email Address* Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Tags brooklynManhattanRental Market
