Should I average down on cheap FTSE 100 shares like Warren Buffett?

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. See all posts by Tom Rodgers The issue of whether to average down on cheap FTSE 100 shares is hotly debated among investors. Right now, some classic blue-chip stocks are much cheaper than they were before the stock market crash of March. Does it make sense to buy them now, at a lower price? Or should you cut your losses and run?Let’s consider first what it means to average down. It’s a contrarian investing method used to great effect by multi-billionaire Warren Buffett. He is regarded as the greatest self-made investor of all time.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…How to average downSimply put, it means to buy more shares in a FTSE 100 share you already own, at a lower price than you have paid before.Say for example you own BP shares. In 2018, you would have paid around 500p per share. In May 2020, the market only values BP at 300p. That’s 40% less than two years ago. Has the true value of this FTSE 100 giant really fallen 40% in 24 months? Absolutely not.In fact, the energy supermajor is one of the best cheap FTSE 100 shares you could buy today, in my view. BP currently pays a large 10.4% dividend yield, while so many others have slashed or suspended dividends entirely. I’ve also covered how its massive renewable energy investments mark it out to me as a major winner in the future economy.But if you buy BP shares now, the average price you paid for them has fallen to 400p. Congratulations! You’ve just averaged down.And if you choose the right investment in cheap FTSE 100 shares, you up your chance of making more money over the long term.The intelligent investorThis phenomenon was described by Benjamin Graham in his seminal 1949 book The Intelligent Investor. Graham proposed the idea of Mr Market as an allegory for the stock market. He is a character who suffers extreme mood swings. His pricing is irrational because it is emotional. Sometimes Mr Market will give you a chance to make money by undervaluing some shares and overvaluing others.Warren Buffett described reading The Intelligent Investor as one of the most important events of his life. He jumped at the chance to take Graham’s class at Columbia University in 1951. Graduating at the age of 20, Buffett went to work in Omaha selling securities. Over the next four years, he begged Graham for a job, eventually joining him at the Graham-Newman Corporation in 1954.Some 55 years later, the Berkshire Hathaway CEO is worth in excess of $68.5bn.Don’t average down?There are, of course, instances where you should not average down.When used incorrectly, it is symptomatic of investors throwing good money after bad. This takes the form of spending vital cash on an underperforming company whose revenues, profits and earnings per share are falling.In this scenario an investor’s burning desire to be right short-circuits logic and overtakes the need to make money on an investment.But the lesson I learned from Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett is this: resist market hysteria and use it to your advantage to get bargains in cheap FTSE 100 shares that have true long-term potential. And — in the case of BP — picking up a 10% dividend yield a year on top isn’t bad either. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

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. Lockdown measures have ripped a strip off the global economy but not all shares have taken a whack. The takeaway industry, for example, has benefitted greatly from the mass closure of restaurants. It looks as if players in the sector will continue to report a bustling trade too, which is good news for some FTSE 100 stocks.A recent survey from GlobalWebIndex illustrates this point. Some 21% of its respondents said they plan to use food delivery services more frequently from now on. Conversely, around 40% suggested that they will eat out at restaurants less often.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…It’s not just overhanging public health fears following the pandemic that is likely to push people from eating out to buying takeout instead. It’s that tough economic conditions will likely encourage people to save money by ordering something in rather than visiting a restaurant.A FTSE 100 starJust Eat Takeaway (LSE:JET) is a great way to play this theme. Indeed, the takeaway industry in its European markets has grown at such a rate over the past decade that the firm’s shares trade on the FTSE 100.The company has a significant position in some of the world’s largest takeaway markets like the UK, Germany, and The Netherlands. And this week it went one step further by agreeing to take over US food delivery mammoth GrubHub for $7.3bn. The accord will create “the world’s largest online food delivery company outside of China”, Just Eat Takeaway says.Now the British company’s shares don’t come cheap. At current prices they command a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 153 times. But I reckon Just Eat Takeaway’s mammoth sales opportunities merit a healthy premium.Surging silverIf you’re put off by the Footsie firm’s high cost, then Fresnillo (LSE: FRES) might be more attractive. Right now the silver miner reads on a forward P/E multiple of above 37 times. This isn’t exactly cheap either. But it’s a fair reflection of the bright outlook for precious metals prices in the 2020s.In times of great economic upheaval so-called flight-to-safety assets like silver come into their own. Demand for the shiny metal ballooned in 2019 as a sharp economic cool down in China, bumpier US-China trade relations, and Brexit all shook investor nerves. Not only do these issues remain very much in play, but the Covid-19 pandemic has darkened the macroeconomic and geopolitical outlook for the 2020s even further.It’s likely that silver prices will continue to gain ground in this environment. And precious metals are likely to receive a boost from the persistence of ultra-low central bank policy, too. Yesterday Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said that the bank – which has slashed interest rates to record lows in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis – was “not even thinking about thinking about raising rates”.It looks like a long and hard road ahead for the US economy and the central bank there will, in line with countries across the globe, keep accommodative monetary policy in place for much of the new decade. And this bodes well for the earnings outlook over at Fresnillo. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The volatile stock markets of the last year have been an exciting place to invest. But where money is concerned, I don’t want too much excitement. That’s why I prefer to keep a significant chunk of my cash invested in high-yield FTSE 100 shares, inside my Stocks and Shares ISA.Over the last year, these companies have continued to provide me with a reliable cash income even when the market has been in freefall. The two FTSE stocks I’m looking at today both offer 8% dividend yields. Both of them held or increased their payouts over the last year.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…Better than goldI’m not keen on investing directly in gold. It never grows, costs money to store, and provides no income. On the other hand, a good quality gold miner with low production costs can deliver both growth and a cash income.My pick in the gold sector is FTSE 100 share Polymetal International (LSE: POLY). This Russian gold miner has seen its stock rise by 35% over the last year, thanks to a strong gold price.Polymetal benefits from quite low mining costs, with all-in sustaining cash costs (an industry metric) of just $874/ounce in 2020. The company’s average selling price for gold was $1,797/oz over the same period. This pushed the group’s after-tax profits up by 83% to $1,072m.Shareholders will receive just over half this amount in dividends, with a total payout of $1.29 per share. Brokers covering Polymetal expect the dividend to rise to $1.65 per share in 2021, giving a forecast yield of almost 8%.Of course, there is no way of predicting how the gold price might change in 2021. A sharp drop in the price of gold could force Polymetal to scale back its payout.Mining stocks don’t always provide the most stable dividends. But in my experience, buying miners with strong production and low costs can be a good way to generate additional income.Polymetal shares are trading on around eight times 2021 forecast earnings, with an 8% dividend yield. I’d be happy to buy more at this level.I think this FTSE 100 share is too cheapThe second high-yield dividend share I’d buy for my ISA today is tobacco giant British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS). Obviously, this stock carries some ethical concerns which will rule it out for some investors.Indeed, ethical concerns are increasingly keeping big institutional investors away from this sector. There’s also the risk that global smoking rates could decline to a level where the business becomes much less profitable.Those risks probably won’t go away. But tobacco companies have been fighting against these trends for years. BATS has emerged as one of the winners, in my view. It’s the largest tobacco company in the world. In 2020, sales of nearly £26bn generated an operating profit of £10bn.Strong brands such as Dunhill, Lucky Strike, and Rothmans help BATS to increase its market share and apply regular price increases. This helps to offset the annual decline in global smoking rates.For me, BAT’s big attraction is that it generates high levels of surplus cash, much of which is distributed to shareholders as dividends. In my view, this is one of very few FTSE 100 shares which can offer a sustainable 8% dividend yield.last_img read more

HUD Reaffirms Its Commitment to Hurricane Harvey Recovery

On its part, Texas has submitted its latest recovery plan for HUD’s review. The plan primarily focuses on the restoration of damaged and destroyed homes, businesses, and infrastructure.According to the latest plan submitted to HUD, the bulk of the $652 million, will go towards program-related funds allocated to the State of Texas administered programs. Around $200 million will be allocated to the Affordable Rental Program. Around $236 million will be allocated towards the state-run Homeowner Assistance Program (HAP), while around $4.4 million is allocated to Housing Program Project Delivery.The additional funding allocated to HAP increases total funding for the program to around $1.3 billion to help meet owner-occupied housing’s unmet need, the plan submitted by the state indicated.“Today, we’re taking another important step along the path to recovery for hard-hit areas in East Texas,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “HUD is committed to working alongside Texans to rebuild their homes, restore their businesses and repair their critical infrastructure.”The Texas General Land Office (GLO) estimates the cost of damages from Hurricane Harvey at $120 billion, making it the costliest event in U.S. history. The hurricane shut down ports, trade, tourism, oil and gas production, agricultural production, and general businesses across most of the Texas coast, for almost a week and, in some cases, significantly longer.”I am grateful to Secretary Carson for his tremendous partnership throughout the recovery and ongoing rebuilding process and for his leadership from the very beginning,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “With these funds, Texas will do more than rebuild. We will rebuild our communities stronger and more resilient than before.”According to the GLO, over a million homes were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Texas is projected to spend more than $2.6 billion on response and recovery.

SOF drill Trojan Footprint expanding from the Baltic

first_img View post tag: SOCEUR Personnel from ten nations rehearsed the rapid deployment of special operations and armed forces in a drill that is no longer confined to the Baltic region.Taking place this June in Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania, exercise Trojan Footprint 19 was led by Special Operations Command Europe and included operators from Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, the Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the US.The major training objective for Trojan Footprint 19 was exercising multi-domain mission command across several nations at the operational level and below, synchronizing dozens of operations across the air, land and sea.In order to build the scale needed to support large SOF headquarters, this year’s exercise joined with the Romanian annual national SOF exercise Black Swan. Black Swan focused on three different levels from Special Operations Task Unit to Special Operations Task Groups up to SOF Component Command.“Although most of us know each other from multiple deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq, the size and difficulty of the exercise really challenged the multinational team on all levels and provided a superb training opportunity for us,” said Hungarian SOF Commander Brig. Gen. Tomas Sandor. “The deployment of a US Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force [for Trojan Footprint] added a tremendous training value and unique opportunity to work side by side and learn from each other.”As the fictional crisis continued to develop, US SOF and other allies and partners deployed to Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania as Trojan Footprint began. Prior to this year’s exercise, Trojan Footprint took place biennially, with a focus on the Baltic region.“Making Trojan Footprint an annual exercise, with rotating focus between the Baltic and Black Sea regions, provides several opportunities for our command and our partners,” said US Army Col. George Thiebes, SOCEUR deputy commander.
