Argo Blockchain shares: will they help me retire early?

Paul Summers | Monday, 11th January, 2021 | More on: ARB Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 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. Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARG) was last week’s most popular buy on online platform Hargreaves Lansdown, pushing electric vehicle maker Tesla and tech-focused FTSE 100 member Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust into second and third spot respectively.Based on recent share price gains, I can’t blame investors for getting excited.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…Argo Blockchain shares: retirement-makerArgo’s share price was just over 10p one month ago. When the market closed last Friday, it was 117.5p. A few days earlier in the week, it was as high as 135p a pop.  I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that at least some of those holding the stock prior to December might now be contemplating taking retirement earlier than they originally planned.The huge rise in valuation over recent months isn’t hard to fathom. As the only cryptocurrency mining company listed on the LSE, it was perhaps inevitable that the stock would prove popular as Bitcoin hit the headlines again. If anything, the spectacular performance of Argo Blockchain shares has been overdue. In case you hadn’t noticed, the cryptocurrency was one the best ‘investments’ you could have made when markets crashed back in March 2020. The price of a single coin was around $5,000 back then. It was over $41,000 last Friday, helped by ongoing concerns over the global economy and the prospect of inflation.But would I buy now?Since Argo is a listed company and not ‘hackable’ like some digital wallets, I’d be far more likely to buy its shares over Bitcoin. Even so, I’d be cautious about throwing too much cash at the shares right now. Things could get very volatile over the next few days and weeks as profits are inevitably banked. Indeed, if the Bitcoin price is anything to go by, holders should be ready to endure double-digit percentage gains and falls. Such is the fate of any company whose earnings depend on a speculative asset it has no control over.It’s particularly worth highlighting that ARB was also the most popular sell by Hargreaves Lansdown clients last week. For me, this suggests your average holder of Argo Blockchain shares isn’t in it for the long term. This situation isn’t helped by Argo’s ‘free float’ either. This is the percentage of shares that are available to buy and sell on the market. At a little under 74%, this is less than the typical FTSE 100 stock whose free float is usually very close to 100%. The lower the free float, the more likely the price is to rocket and tank thanks to fewer trades made and limited stock available.No one knowsOf course, no one knows where Bitcoin is going over the next week, let alone the rest of 2021. Its price could double from here or sink to zero. We’ve no idea. The same goes for Argo Blockchain shares. Traders dreaming of retiring early and possessing the right level of risk tolerance may be fine with this. My concern however, is at least some retail investors haven’t stopped to question their own risk profile and may allow greed to take hold. Herein lies the danger.Good luck to those considering Argo Blockchain shares and congratulations to those already holding. I’ll stick to high-quality UK stocks that I can hold for years as my strategy for bringing retirement closer. That’s the Foolish way.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The Apopka Voice reaches 5,000 likes on Facebook

first_img Good job Dale. A very informative site!! The Apopka Voice just received its 5,000th “like” on Facebook. Not bad for a publication that did not exist 18 months ago. For those 5,000 followers on Facebook and the 32,000 unique visitors to our news site, we wanted to say thank you and explain why we love serving this community.Because Apopka is home to some of the finest people in the world.After years of watching it being portrayed otherwise by Central Florida media outside our community, Dale Fenwick realized someone should give the community a balancing voice when it comes to Apopka news, information and community events, and it should be done in an innovative format. So in December of 2015, Fenwick launched The Apopka Voice, which has become the premier platform for up to the minute news in the Apopka area.The Apopka Voice is a new approach to collecting news and information, to original reporting, innovative storytelling, provocative commentary, and distribution that embrace the possibilities of technology and expand audiences and deepen relationships with its readers.Now, 18 months after its beginning,  The Apopka Voice continues on its journey to produce content of the highest quality and relevance to its readers, while maintaining an innovative style that attracts 32,000 unique visitors to the news site each month.The Apopka Voice covers the news impartially and objectively and treats readers, news sources, advertisers and others fairly and openly. No news is too controversial, but no news is sensationalized.At a time of skepticism about journalists and media outlets, The Apopka Voice strives to maintain the highest possible standards to ensure that it does nothing that might erode readers’ faith and confidence. It always seeks out sources to verify the facts, and its editorials will always take the extra step of proving its opinion.The Apopka Voice tells its audience the complete, unvarnished truth as best as it can report and learn it.Like the name says, The Apopka Voice is here to give the residents of Apopka a voice, and to tell the fascinating story of Apopka and its people every day of the week.We encourage you to use Facebook to comment on our articles. Facebook comments are so much better than Letters to the Editor. First, they are immediate… no waiting for your letter to be “approved” and published. Second, there is unlimited space. We don’t have to pick the “best” letters to publish or limit the number of words per letter. Third, others can comment on your comments. This helps the whole community have a Voice.We know that not every article will be of interest to every one of our readers, but if you see an article that is of interest to you it will probably be of interest to one or more of your Facebook Friends.

Valedictorian Hannah Whitman said it would have been best if she and her classmates had known that they were living ‘the good ol’ days’ before it was time to leave them.“We have all made some mistakes and we need to move forward with strength and courage. We must be strong, truthful and honest and have faith in God,” she said, adding that her hopes are that, as classmates, they will cling to the memories of each other as they go their separate ways. “And always hold our diplomas from Zion Chapel High School as sacred trusts.”At the Zion Chapel High School Class of 2017 sang their Alma Mater for the first time as graduates, there were more than a few misty eyes.

Recent oceanic changes in the Arctic in the context of long-term observations

first_imgThis synthesis study assesses recent changes of Arctic Ocean physical parameters using a unique collection of observations from the 2000s and places them in the context of long-term climate trends and variability. Our analysis demonstrates that the 2000s were an exceptional decade with extraordinary upper Arctic Ocean freshening and intermediate Atlantic Water warming. We note that the Arctic Ocean is characterized by large amplitude multi-decadal variability in addition to a long-term trend, making the link of observed changes to climate drivers problematic. However, the exceptional magnitude of recent high-latitude changes (not only oceanic, but also ice and atmospheric) strongly suggests that these recent changes signify a potentially irreversible shift of the Arctic Ocean to a new climate state. These changes have important implications for the Arctic Ocean’s marine ecosystem, especially those components that are dependent on sea ice or that have temperature-dependent sensitivities or thresholds. Addressing these and other questions requires a carefully orchestrated combination of sustained multidisciplinary observations and advanced modeling.last_img read more

Smaller landlords are disappearing – is this what the Government wanted all along?

first_imgGrowth in the buy-to-let sector this year has dropped dramatically as more amateur, smaller portfolio landlords have stopped buying properties or decided to leave the market, a report has claimed.The Kent Reliance annual Buy To Let Britain survey, published in association with Legal & General, quizzed 865 landlords and shows that the recent mix of tax reform and tighter regulation has reduced growth in the number of privately rented houses to 2.2% this year, down from just over 8% in 2014.These recent reductions in tax allowances and extra Stamp Duty, coupled with a second round of stricter buy-to-let lending rules introduced by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) this year, means the market now favours larger portfolio and institutional investors, the report claims.Limited companiesAnd the landlords who have stuck with buy-to-let are now increasingly turning to limited company status to reduce their tax costs. Kent Reliance says 70% of all buy-to-let loans are now from companies rather than individuals.This, Kent Reliance Chief Executive Andy Golding (pictured, left) says, is having the effect many warned it would – to push up rents as tenant demand outstrips supply in some areas of the UK, in particular the East Midlands and East of England.But overall rents are slowing, dragged down by a softening rental market in London, the reports says.“Landlords are swallowing the unpleasant cocktail of higher taxation and tighter regulation, and this is undermining the expansion of the private rented sector,” says Andy Golding.“A fundamental shift in the landlord population is now underway, as buy to let moves from being a popular past-time for hundreds of thousands of British amateur landlords, to the preserve of committed long-term investors with experience and expertise.The report also reveals one staggering figure; tenants have paid landlords £58.8 billion in rent over the past 12 months, £2.3 billion more than a year ago.Kent Reliance Building Society landlords andy golding buy-to-let December 8, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Coronavirus: 6-point plan for survival

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Coronavirus: 6-point plan for survival previous nextAgencies & PeopleCoronavirus: 6-point plan for survivalIt’s affecting everybody and damaging business but good communications and a caring attitude can help get your business through the crisis.Richard Reed17th March 202005,587 Views The property industry could be hard hit by the Coronavirus pandemic – but there are things that agents can do to help themselves and help clients.That is the message from Jerry Lyons, managing director of Property PR Expert, who says it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.To help people cope with the impact of the Coronavirus he has come up with a six-point plan which he says was first put together in 2009 to deal with the Swine Flu outbreak.He says the 6C system can be summarised as ‘communicate calmly, clearly, consistently and compassionately with your community’.Opportunities“There are opportunities out there,” he said. “Not just to win business, but to change perceptions of our industry. And remember in bad times you can still do good things.”The 6C systemCommunicate: Don’t hide away and hope it goes away. Communicate (call, email, What’s App, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) with anyone involved in your business. This means clients, prospects, suppliers, contractors and the communities you serve. Let them know what you are doing. Have a front-foot mindset like Tyson, not a ‘shrink into your shell’ turtle. Focus on what you can do, not on what you can’t.Calmly: Good leaders don’t panic, and if you get your communication and content plan working well, your agency will be taking responsibility and leading the way. Stick to the facts, be honest and remember this will eventually pass.Clearly: There’s a reason why this plan is on one page and summarised in a single sentence. People can’t take on board large amounts of information, especially in anxious times. Keep your messaging simple and clear, eg “We’re open for business. Here is our six-point Coronavirus protocol. We’re here to help no matter what.”Consistently: This is a fast-changing situation. Be ready to communicate at least daily for the foreseeable future. Also, only use recognised sources – the NHS, BBC News, reputable newspapers and magazines – Not Frank from Facebook or Tina on Twitter.Compassionately: People are worried about themselves, their children, their parents, their jobs. Think carefully before sending out communications. How does the tone sound? Are you being too salesy? These are highly sensitive times, and your agency’s tone needs to reflect this.Community: We are all in this together, and your content and communications need to reflect this. Be as community-focused as possible. No-one will remember your market share during this time, BUT they will remember your agency showed genuine, compassionate community care – such as encouraging people to use local independent agent coronavirus Coping with coronavirus coronavirus marketing client communication March 17, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?
