Why I think shares like these can help beat a FTSE 100 crash

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Could you have better avoided the FTSE 100 crash? There will be crashes in the future, for sure. I think there’s even a realistic chance that we could see a second phase with a double-dip stock market crash now. So it’s never too late to ask.I certainly don’t suggest we should abandon our long-term investing strategies just because we’ve had a tough few months. No, I remain convinced that a Foolish strategy already helps reduce the pain of a FTSE 100 crash.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…But I have been thinking about focusing a little more strongly on what are often known as ‘picks and shovels’ stocks. But what are they? The name comes from the gold rush days, when huge numbers of prospectors went off in search of their fortunes. Some made it big, but countless others returned penniless.But do you know who became rich with very little risk? Those who ran the stores and provided the materials for the hopeful miners. The clothing, the provisions, the explosives. And the picks and shovels.FTSE 100 crash safetyWhat about similar companies that might offer safety in a FTSE 100 crash? Traditionally, it’s taken to mean those providing goods and services that other companies use. For example, the retail energy business is highly competitive. But every supplier of gas and electricity in the country simply has to use the distribution networks. And those are run by National Grid. If an energy firm or two should suffer in a FTSE 100 crash, National Grid will still have the business from the winners to keep it going.There’s an example in the construction industry too. Infrastructure specialists are in a downturn, with large debts and tight cashflow characterising the sector. Undercutting on pricing to win contracts is a necessary part. But pare the potential margins too thin, and a project delay can put a company well into the red. The best example is Carillion, which failed in 2018 in the largest ever trading liquidation in the UK.Bricks and mortar, literallySo instead of investing in construction firms themselves, buying shares in materials suppliers could be a lot safer. CRH is an example of one that’s been getting off lightly in the current FTSE 100 crash. While plenty of shares have slumped 50% and more, the CRH share price is down less than 15%. Or in the FTSE 250, I like the look of brick maker Ibstock.I think we can expand the picks and shovels definition too. Including companies that don’t serve those at the sharp end, but instead aggregate their services for end users seems like a fair extension. I’m talking of, for example, travel agents like TUI Travel. The FTSE 100 crash has hit TUI quite hard, admittedly, but I think it’s a safer bet then investing in an airline directly. If an airline goes bust, TUI would just use the others.End user servicesComparison firms like Gocompare fit the bill too. While our big insurers have suffered badly in the FTSE 100 crash, people are still buying insurance. And they’re using comparison companies to do it.Ultimately, biasing your portfolio a bit more towards these picks and shovels is just, I think, potentially making a sound long-term investing strategy a little bit safer.

This scenario was the first conditioning.Save this picture!Floor Plan 01The second would be the desire to hide in this environment (and not mimic).

Low-wage and oppressed workers in the struggle

first_imgMond JonesThis presentation was given on Nov. 18 at the 2017 Workers World Party national conference in Newark, N.J.We all know what a worker is, right? When most people hear the word “worker,” they imagine probably a scruffy-looking white dude in denim overalls with a wrench in his back pocket or some shit like that. Sure, lots of workers look like that. However, that is not an accurate representation of the working class. In fact, the majority of workers don’t fit that description at all.What’s a worker? A worker, in the Marxist sense, is someone who sells their labor power for a wage, and does not own the means of production.That’s most of us in this room.But when we talk about workers, and the “working class,” we aren’t just talking about people with union jobs.Often times, a large portion of the working class goes unrecognized.Who’s a worker?We believe that the revolution will be led by the most oppressed elements of society, because they have the least to lose and the most to gain.The antagonisms are much more severe for the lower strata of the working class: Black and migrant workers, queer workers, disabled workers, sex workers, etc., and therefore these elements of the working class have the most revolutionary potential, historically.When Brother Bobby and Brother Huey were organizing and recruiting for the Black Panther Party, one of the most advanced Black liberation movements in the U.S. to this very day, where did they go?They didn’t sweep the university halls for philosophers. They weren’t looking around in coffee shops or in the suburbs for revolutionaries. They didn’t join leftist book discussion groups and form petty bourgeois academic cliques.They went straight to the oppressed communities with the science of Marxism-Leninism, because they knew that poor Black folks were feeling the sharpest end of the blade of capitalism.The Chinese revolution could not have happened without the peasantry, a disenfranchised section of the global working class.Even the Russian Revolution required an alliance with the rural farmers, who would not be considered proletarian, to be successful.There will be no revolution here, without two things.The first thing is an understanding of the concept of the global working class that holds there are two camps: the oppressed and the oppressors, the imperialists and the anti-imperialists, the capitalists and the communists. That understands that any win against imperialism is a win for our class camp.And the second thing is understanding that the “lumpenproletariat” — part- time, non-union workers, non-legal workers, low-wage workers — are part of the global working class and necessary for the building of a revolutionary force against capitalism, imperialism and white supremacy.Who has revolutionary potential?I just learned that Barack Obama used to be a “Marxist-Leninist” in college. Plenty of liberals go through a “socialist” phase until they can afford to assimilate into the white supremacist capitalist machine. Look at how easy it is for these people to fall into neoliberalism and bourgeois reformism!Mao said it best: “These people have their Marxism, but they have their liberalism as well — they talk Marxism but practice liberalism.”Historically, the people with the most revolutionary potential are the people who, under no conditions, could gain anything from playing into the capitalist game of destruction.I couldn’t imagine my broke, Black ass doing anything other than being in the struggle.Everywhere I turn there’s a handful of oppression ready to smack me upside the head, to remind me of my place in this society. What the hell I look like acting like “It ain’t so bad”?As if I haven’t seen, first hand, the results of capitalist exploitation of oppressed and nonconventional workers. I come from a family of fighters, a race of fighters, a class of fighters.Imagine the revolutionary potential of a low-wage worker. Working three jobs under horrible conditions and abusive management, just barely making enough to support their family, and to feed themselves the next day.Watching their water be shut off for petty delinquencies, while corporations rack up thousands of dollars in unpaid water bills, but go unpunished. They know what this system does.Imagine the revolutionary potential of these hustlers and drug dealers and gang members, disenfranchised from society and the job market by the strategic dismemberment of their neighborhoods and families, and the police war on Black and Brown people. They know what this system does.Imagine the revolutionary potential of every prisoner, unjustly imprisoned, tortured and exploited by the “justice system.” Denied health care, privacy, basic human rights. Humans, forced to live like pets under our oppressive state. They know what this system does.If anyone knows the effects of capitalism, it’s these people. If anyone wants to see this system crumble, it’s these people.Meet folks where they are, and have an understanding of the global working class. Understand that, no matter what, we have a responsibility to topple this rotten system.We have to show solidarity with Black Lives Matter, BYP100 and any other organization of oppressed people fighting against this racist system. As a multinational, working-class, socialist and anti-imperialist organisation in the imperialist center, that’s one of the ways we operate.We have a responsibility to our class and to the struggle to be in solidarity with any force fighting against capitalism and racist oppression.But we must push our line on the global working class, because we know socialism is the answer, we know communism is the goal, and we know that the racist Republicans, the Democrackers and social chauvinists are out here, leading the people astray.And through building class consciousness among the most oppressed, moving through the people like a fish through water, we will see the end of the oppressive, Western regime and the hyper exploitation of the people at home and abroad.U.S. imperialism? Down with it!Racist Cops? Down with them!White supremacists? Down with them!Capitalism? Down with it!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
