Should I buy AirBnB stock for my ISA?

first_imgShould I buy AirBnB stock for my ISA? Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Online holiday rental marketplace AirBnB (NASDAQ: ABNB) was one of the most hotly anticipated stock market listings in recent times. As such, it’s perhaps no surprise that the share price more than doubled from $60 on the first day of trading in the US market earlier this month. At one point, it hit a high of $165! Since then, some volatility has set in. On Tuesday, AirBnB stock was down to almost $120. Yesterday, it was trading near $140.5G 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…Should I be considering the company for my ISA or steering well clear? Let’s start with some positives. Why I like AirBnB stock According to its website, AirBnB has 5.6 million active listings in 100,000 cities worldwide. This clearly gives it far greater geographical diversification than even the most established global hotel firms. Then there’s the variety on offer. According to its website, AirBnB “offers 90,000 cabins, 40,000 farms, 24,000 tiny homes, 5,600 boats, 3,500 castles, 2,800 yurts, 2,600 treehouses, 1,600 private islands, 300 lighthouses, and 140 igloos“. Companies that have something for everyone tend to remain popular. And then there’s the brand itself. In my experience, the question “Did you AirBnB it?” is quickly becoming the travel equivalent of “Did you Google it?“. And we all know what’s happened to parent company Alphabet‘s valuation. On a purely anecdotal basis, I’ve also found the whole process of booking a place to stay on weekend city breaks easy, convenient, and strangely quite fun in itself.Given the above, you might wonder why I haven’t bought the stock already.Reasons to be waryMy first reason relates to valuation. For all the excitement that its IPO caused, AirBnB is still massively loss-making and likely to remain so for some time. With a current market cap of over $80bn, this simply can’t be ignored.Tellingly, at least some analysts have already turned bearish on the company. Equity research firm Gordon Haskett believes AirBnB stock will likely underperform after such a strong start. I’m confident it won’t be the last.Aside from the valuation, the fact that AirBnB is just one of the host of companies coming to market recently is worrying. A flurry of IPOs suggests founders believe market conditions won’t get much better.Another, perhaps inevitable reason why I’m hesitating to buy is due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic.While the emergence of effective vaccines has been glorious news, it will still take a while before we can all remove our face masks. Moreover, many people, although desperate for a holiday, may still feel initially safer in hotels with strict hygiene rules. The psychological impact of the pandemic may persist for longer than we think. On top of this, I can’t discount the possibility of greater regulation on holiday rentals. Be patientAs a Foolish investor, I take a long term approach. My philosophy is simple: buy right and hold. I leave the risky stuff to traders. Right now, I’m placing AirBnB stock in the latter category.A wobbly share price doesn’t make it a bad investment, of course. Anyone who remembers Facebook‘s 2012 IPO will know that it plunged in value shortly afterward. These days, it’s one of the biggest companies around!Even so, I’m prepared to be patient. The time to buy will be when expectations are reset back to vaguely sensible levels.In my view, AirBnB needs to come back down to earth.

Blue Darters slam Mandarin 55-12 in Jacksonville

The Anatomy of Fear Williams runs wild for 245 yards and 5 touchdownsThe Apopka Blue Darters travelled to Jacksonville tonight to begin their whirlwind tour, which includes three games in the next eight days. And the first leg of that tour went well, as junior running back Cornelius Williams torched the Mustangs for 245 yards and five touchdowns and the Blue Darters ran wild for a 55-12 victory.Despite a two-hour bus ride, it didn’t take long for the Apopka quick strike offense to acclimate itself to Jacksonville.On the second play from scrimmage, Williams avoided a Mandarin defender in the backfield, and burst 67 yards for the opening score of the game. After a two-point conversion run by freshman running back Eric Wright, the Blue Darters led 8-0.With 9:30 left in the first quarter, Mandarin scored on an 18-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Kye Smith to junior wide receiver Kasimir Absolu, but their extra point was blocked, and Apopka kept the lead 8-6.The Blue Darters wasted little time in scoring again. This time after a seven play drive capped by another Williams touchdown run from 24 yards. The two-point-conversion failed, and Apopka led 14-6.With 3:15 in the first quarter, Mandarin scored again on a Smith keeper, but the extra point missed, giving Apopka a 14-12 lead.Five plays and two minutes later, Apopka scored again on its third straight possession when Williams went around end and outran Mandarin defenders for his third touchdown in the first quarter – this time from 32 yards out. The extra point by kicker Titus Vandiver was good and Apopka led 21-12.At the beginning of the second quarter, the Blue Darters’ fierce rush on Mandarin punter Hudson Levine forced a fumble and recovered, giving Apopka the ball at the Mandarin 34-yard-line. Then on the very next play quarterback Jackson Darlington ran up the middle for a 25-yard-touchdown. The extra point missed, but Apopka led 27-12.After two straight stops by the Apopka defense, one inside their own 20-yard-line, Williams scored again on an 11-yard-touchdown run and a Vandiver extra point to increase its lead to 34-12 with 5:11 left in the second quarter. Then three minutes later, Williams scored again on a 30-yard touchdown run, and after another Vandiver kick gave the Blue Darters a 41-12 lead.Darlington added another touchdown midway through the third quarter to give Apopka a 48-12 lead after another Vandiver extra point, which started the running “mercy” clock began (when a team leads by 35 points or more). However that did not end the scoring, as reserve running back Reshard Sibley slipped into the end zone from five yards out, and a Vandiver extra point made it 55-12 to end the third quarter.Apopka scored touchdowns on eight of its nine possessions, taking a knee on the Mandarin two-yard line to end the game. The Blue Darter defense shutout the Mustangs (who fell to 2-5 on the season) after allowing two scores to begin the game.The Blue Darters improved its record to 5-1 with the win, heading into a Monday night matchup with rival Dr. Phillips High School, who is also 5-1 on the season, and ranked #1 in the Associated Press State 8A Poll. The Blue Darters are ranked #3. The game is at Dr. Phillips. Kickoff is 7PM.

Magners League Best Tries – Round 2

first_imgFriday Sep 18, 2009 Magners League Best Tries – Round 2 The Magners League is now heading into week 3 of action as the best sides from Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland battle it out in what is rapidly becoming one of the better tournaments in world rugby.We have a pick of some of the best tries for you today, as sides are hitting their straps and creating some awesome try scoring opportunities.Ulster upset the star studded Ospreys at Liberty Stadium with an impressive 20-16 win on Saturday. Scottish winger Simon Danielli scored two nice tries, with big lock Dan Tuohy finding himself in support to pick up a try of his own. Another Scottish winger, Nikki Walker, scored an excellent break away try for the home side.As we saw earlier in the week, Xavier Rush scored a fantastic try for Cardiff in their 24-13 defeat to Munster in Limerick. Marcus Horan and Denis Leamy scored for Munster.Fijian national Isa Nacewa scored a great try for Leinster as they comfortably slayed the Dargons 23-14 at the RDS. Nacewa finished off the try after a neat wrap around move by flyhalf Jonny Sexton, but the pass from Gordon Darcy did look highly suspicious.Edinburgh let loose against Connacht on Friday as they scored eight tries in their 62-13 massacre of the Irish side. Tries were scored for the winning side by Mark Robertson, Ben Cairns, Chris Paterson, Ally Hogg, Alan Macdonald, Andrew Turnbull, and Roddy Grant. Connacht did manage to pick up a consolation try though, from Fionn Carr.The last try we have is from the match between the Glasgow Warriors and the Scarlets from Firhill. Glasgow continued their good start to the season with a 19-11 win, but the try featured comes from the losing side, and fullback Daniel Evans. It’s an extremely busy period in the world of rugby, so at times we might not be able to feature all tournaments. If you have a preference, please let us know and we’ll try make the majority happy by featuring the most popular action.

Lawyers from Making a Murderer discuss false confessions

first_imgLifestyleNewsSocietyLawyers from Making a Murderer discuss false confessionsBy Eric Fitzgerald – June 2, 2019 465 Linkedin WhatsApp Print Twitter Facebookcenter_img Lawyers Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin present False Confessions: Inside Making A Murderer 2 at Dolan’s this Wednesday June 5NETFLIX series ‘Making a Murderer’ was watched by over 20 million across the globe in 2015 with a second season broadcast in 2018. The first series was 10 years in the making and followed the investigation of the murder of 25 year-old photographer Teresa Halbach. Steven Avery was convicted of the rape and murder in 2005. Avery’s cousin Brendan Dassey at age 16 was convicted as an accessory in the crime when he told investigators that he had helped his uncle, Steven Avery.Limerick Post spoke to Laura Nirider, post-conviction attorney for Brendan Dassey. Nirider and lawyer Steven Drizin will present, ‘False Confessions, Inside Making A Murderer 2’ at Dolans Warehouse this Wednesday June 5.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The duo will discuss coerced and false confessions, interrogation tactics, and the wrongful conviction of Brendan Dassey whose case and post conviction process continues today.This will be Laura Nirider’s first visit to Ireland and she is looking forward to the tour to shine a light on how prevalent false convictions are in today’s justice system.Nearly 12 years ago. Laura was a law student and Steve Drizin was her professor.“I knew nothing about the criminal justice system, or wrongful convictions. I was in Steve’s class one of the globe’s experts on false confessions, had been assigned Brendan’s case right after he had been convicted.“When I watched the confession videos, my heart broke and I knew that this is what I wanted do with my life. Watching these tapes made me want to do what I could to help.”In series two, as the lawyers work to get Dassey’s conviction overturned, Laura states to the camera, “The truth is just sitting there on that interrogation tape all you have to do is persuade someone to look at it.”Asked to expand on what the lawyers had found while examining the tape that was central to the convictions, Laura highlighted the tactics used to suggest to Dassey that if he helped police to “fill in the blanks”, he would be able to walk free.“When you look at those interrogation tapes you look at a 16 year-old boy with intellectual limitations who is being questioned alone with no parent or guardian by his side“You see a set of interrogation tactics being used on him that we see over and over in hundreds of other self-confession cases.“They tell him that the prosecutors are thinking of charging him with the murder of Teresa Haibach – which is a lie.”Questioned four times over 48 hours by two detectives, with no legal representation, the interrogators assure Dassey that as long as he fills in the blanks, gives them some story, he will have nothing to worry about.“He struggles to fill in these blanks. He’s telling stories about what happened. They are asking him to describe when Teresa Halbach was killed.“Brendan doesn’t know that she was shot in the head. He guesses all these other ways of killing someone.“We stabbed her, no, that is not right.”“We choked her. No,that’s not right either.”“They start dropping hints, ‘Come on, Brendan. Something with the head!’ He is completely at sea.”“They had to tell him ‘Brendan, who shot her in the head?’”“After Brendan has agreed to confess and has adapted his story, he asks to go back to school after confessing to rape and murder. He has been told that as long as he has filled in these blanks, he’ll will be OK!”“That is a pattern that we see in hundreds of false confession cases.”In season two of ‘Making a Murderer’ the lawyers came within 12 hours of getting Brendan Dassey out of prison. An appeal succeeded based on the unconstitutional coercion of his confession but a Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago upheld his conviction.“The courts blocked it in a very unusual and rare move.“We lost the appeal by a single vote.”Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin still represent Brendan Dassey. Options open to him now are to go back into court and file a post conviction petition based on newly discovered evidence.Brendan Dassey is now 29 years-old, serving a life sentence with no eligibility for parole until 2048. Did the publicity of the TV show and the public outcry over the case make his prospects of release more remote?“I think that the TV series has benefited the case. The spotlight on the injustice is absolutely crucial.”“The first eight years I represented Brendan, he was forgotten, then to have his story told and to resonate so clearly across the globe. Brendan started getting letters from Australia and Ireland from all over – wishing him well. The truth will come out.“He has a list of every place he has received a letter from. Brendan is sustained by the hope and that is good enough for me.”‘False Confessions: Inside Making A Murderer 2’ with Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin tours Ireland this week, coming to Dolan’s this Wednesday June 5.

About Author: David Wharton Related Articles The choice between renting and buying a home involves a number of important factors, but younger generations are likely to pay a lot more in lifetime rent than their parents and grandparents. According to a new analysis by HotPads, Inc., members of Generation Z “can expect to spend $226,000 on inflation-adjusted rent in their lifetime.” For comparison’s sake, that total is around $24k more than millennials should expect and $77k more than the baby boomers.There is some good news for Generation Z, however. While total rent expenditures during their lifetimes will be higher for Generation Z than for their forebearers, members of Gen Z are likely to achieve the goal of homeownership somewhat than the generation that preceded them. According to HotPads’ analysis, baby boomers typically rented for around a decade before purchasing a home, and for millennials, the number was around 12 years. That timeline looks to drop back down slightly for Generation Z, hitting 11 years.HotPads reports that, despite Generation Z still demonstrating enthusiasm for the dream of homeownership, they face a number of challenges along that path.”Millennials entered the workforce during the Great Recession—a period of scarce job prospects and strong demand in rental markets across the country—making it harder for them to keep up with rising rents and still put money aside for a down payment,” Joshua Clark, Economist at HotPads, said in a statement.”Millennials have also delayed major life decisions that typically coincide with homeownership, like getting married and having children, adding on to the total number of years they’ve spent renting,” Clark continued. “While there are a lot of unknowns about how the American economy will evolve over the coming decades as Generation Z grows into adulthood, if historical trends hold, the long-term forecast right now suggests that Generation Z is likely to benefit from a stronger job market than millennials. While rising rents and home values mean that it won’t be as easy for Generation Z to become homeowners as it was for Baby Boomers, they should get there sooner than millennials did.”How do the lifetime rent differences between the generations stack up in different American locales? In San Francisco, the gap is wide indeed. In San Francisco, the median monthly rent is a whopping $4,330. Over their average of 11 years spent renting, Generation Z residents in the City by the Bay can expect to pay $570,900. Millennials would have paid only $399,400 during their average of 12 years spent renting in the same city, and San Francisco baby boomers would have come out of their decade’s worth of rental having paid only $230,000.On the more affordable end of the spectrum, Generation Z renters in Cleveland, Ohio, (current median rent $1,350) can expect to pay only $177,800 over the course of their renting lifetime. For millennials, the total was $168,000 and for baby boomers it was $156,600.HotPads, Inc., is a San Francisco-based and Zillow Group-owned apartment and home search platform for renters in urban areas across the United States. For this analysis, HotPads examined data taken from both the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, then combined that info with its own rental data in order to gauge rental expectations for the various generational cohorts. For purposes of this study, HotPads defined baby boomers as born between 1945 and 1964, millennials as born between 1980 and 1994, and Generation Z as born between 1995 and 2010.
