As this guest of the house massively exceeds his welcome, Aniston agrees that Clydeo will stay because this aspiring food blogger and this incredible budding chef prepares dishes that will delight. Upcoming storylines and posts will see Clydeo living in the Aniston House, interacting with his dogs, building his dog foodie empire, and trying the latest TikTok food trend.

Clydeo marks the fifth Invisible Universe IP franchise in his portfolio, which includes Squeaky & Roy (the long lost toys of the D’Amelio family, reunited with them in Los Angeles), Qai Qai (Serena’s daughter doll Williams has come to life), Kayda & Kai (Karlie Kloss’ already famous new robot and docking station) and Crazynho (a cheerful monkey living with Brazilian soccer star Dani Alves).

AAfter the publication of this linked article, several people have asked how inflation can hurt stocks. After all, they say, inflation is nothing more than too much money for too little goods and services. Why shouldn’t inflation be Well for the stock market because all that extra money has to go somewhere, including the stocks of companies that generate more income because of inflated prices?

In the short term this might be true, but as individuals and businesses are forced to adjust to the higher and rising prices that inflation brings, the longer term reality can get downright ugly. Read on to learn more about five ways inflation can hurt stocks.

Image source: Getty Images

# 1: force tough choices

Inflation does not reach the same amount all at once. For example, in the most recent Consumer Price Index released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, energy-related inflation stood at 30%, while the headline inflation level was 6.2% less terrible.

While you can cut your energy use a bit by lowering your thermostat, consolidating trips, and switching to energy-efficient lights, chances are you can’t make up for all of those higher costs. As a result, the massively higher energy costs you are likely facing mean you need to cut back on spending elsewhere in order to afford things like heat your home, cook your food, and commute to work.

People who cut spending in one area of ​​their life due to inevitable inflation elsewhere are reducing the income of the businesses associated with these less essential products. This can harm the actions associated with these types of businesses.

N ° 2: More aggressive cost reduction actions

When businesses are faced with higher costs, they start to get aggressive with their cost cutting actions. This could include things like changing formulas to reduce entry and processing costs, downsizing to lower salary costs and benefits, or lengthening maintenance cycles to reduce downtime. .

Any person or business whose job depended on the old way of doing things is at risk of having their income (or wages) reduced or eliminated as a result of these cost-cutting choices. There could be some winners if a company switches from one ingredient or supplier to another, but because the overall goal is to reduce costs, that always represents a smaller pot of money.

Companies with less income are unlikely to see their shares increase. Employees whose jobs are at risk are unlikely to aggressively inject new money into the stock market. People who lose their jobs are more likely to sell stocks than to buy them, which can cause stock prices to fall.

# 3: higher borrowing costs

If you are looking for something that you cannot pay cash for (like a house or potentially a car), you will borrow the money to complete the transaction. If inflation means that the price of this item is higher today than it was in the past, you will likely pay more and borrow more for that item.

Even if interest rates stay the same, the more you borrow, the higher your debt service costs (principal and interest) will be. It’s money that comes out of your pocket every month that can’t be used for other purposes. If interest rates rise (which they often do in response to inflation), future borrowing will become more expensive, and any existing adjustable rate loans will also see their costs increase.

Any money spent on debt service is money that cannot be invested in the stock market or spent on other goods and services. Whether it’s a lack of new investments or a lack of income, any of these factors can lead to challenges for stock prices.

# 4: an increased need to hold assets in other forms

Typically, the money you plan to spend out of your portfolio over the next five years does not belong to stocks. If you are a retiree who expects to spend $ 40,000 per year from your portfolio, that means you will need $ 200,000 in low risk investments, assuming there is no inflation.

Yet the elderly often face higher rates of inflation than the general population, mainly due to health care costs. So if general inflation stays at 6.2% and seniors face an additional 2% due to health care costs, these expenses will need to increase by 8.2% each year just to maintain their purchasing power. As a result, that $ 40,000 this year becomes $ 43,280 next year, and so on. All in all, that brings the $ 200,000 needed outside of inventory to just over $ 235,600.

This extra money has to come from somewhere. For a retiree living on a portfolio and social security, the money is likely to come from the sale of stocks to raise cash, CDs, equivalent duration treasury bills or quality bonds.

# 5: Better risk-adjusted returns elsewhere

Low interest rates have helped support the stock market. It stands to reason that if rates rise in response to inflation, the stock market may be affected as money forced into stocks by lower rates may find better risk-adjusted returns elsewhere.

For a simple example of how this works, consider an investor who is trying to generate income from their portfolio. As of this writing, 30-year US Treasury bonds offer a miniscule interest rate of 1.69%. It’s fairly easy to find stocks that offer higher current dividend yields than this, and unlike a standard 30-year Treasury bond, stock dividends have the potential to rise over time.

Although this investor may want to The relative safety of a treasury bill, low rates practically force that investor’s money into higher risk stocks. If rates rise, investors in that position will have the option of shifting their money into bonds, thus removing the boost that stocks receive.

Inflation poses real risks to your finances

Between the immediate risks to your purchasing power and the longer-term risks to things like your job and your stocks, inflation can hurt your overall financial position in a number of ways. Recognize these risks and do your best to prepare for them, and you can prepare for a temporary tough time caused even by these high levels of inflation.

Thor industries(NYSE: THO) the share price had climbed to 60% in 2021 before the returns evaporated in recent months. Now, the RV specialist’s shares are lagging the market as it heads to its FY2022 first quarter earnings report on Wednesday, December 8.

The motorhome giant will inform investors about sales and earnings trends, but the bigger question ahead of the announcement is how much Thor and his peers like Winnebago (NYSE: WGO) today meet the historic challenges of supply and inventory.

Success on this point could set Thor for a fantastic 2022, as he meets existing dealer orders at rising prices. Stumbles, on the other hand, would put pressure on growth or expose the company to significant write-downs in a slowing market.

Image source: Getty Images.

Demand wins

The good news is that investors are likely to see more evidence of strong sales momentum. Thor said in September that there was no sign of slowing demand on the books. This strong demand was met with unusually low inventory at dealerships to create a record backlog of around $ 17 billion.

Of course, this backlog simply represents orders that could be canceled. But it’s still great news for the company to see an order book that exceeds the sales of the previous year. “Demand for our motorhome products remains very strong,” CEO Bob Martin told investors in late September.

Procurement questions

The cloudy part of the image concerns the offer. Thor has said he cannot produce enough RVs by the end of fiscal 2021, and those issues may have increased as supply chain issues have worsened in recent months.

Ideally, Thor’s manufacturing network has increased its volume enough to help dealerships increase their inventory levels. If the business has struggled, on the other hand, investors could see another significant increase in the company’s backlog, even though sales were limited in the current quarter. A large backlog is usually great news, but Thor will have to show that he can start turning more of those likely sales into actual sales.

The New Perspective

Investors will also receive a key update on management’s growth forecast now that fiscal 2022 is well advanced. In September, Thor cited several challenges for the near-term outlook, including a tight job market and supply chain issues. The company should, however, handle these issues without too much disruption, she predicted. We’ll find out if Thor is still on that bullish growth and earnings path this week.

Executives could also explain if they still see the RV industry growing by around 4% in 2022, which would likely fuel another record year of profits and sales for Thor. But again, this bullish reading depends on the company’s ability to increase production and take advantage of strong demand today. These demand trends can change quickly. It is a consumer discretionary industry, after all.

This factor helps explain why Thor and his peers are working hard to deliver RVs and towable RV products to dealerships now rather than just taking orders for future deliveries. This week’s report will show how well Thor handles this challenge.

Here’s why biotech stocks Adaptimmune Therapeutics, Agenus, and Ocugen all crashed in November https://passpet.org/heres-why-biotech-stocks-adaptimmune-therapeutics-agenus-and-ocugen-all-crashed-in-november/ Sat, 04 Dec 2021 21:39:13 +0000 https://passpet.org/heres-why-biotech-stocks-adaptimmune-therapeutics-agenus-and-ocugen-all-crashed-in-november/ What happened Biotech stocks performed unusually poorly in November.

What happened

Biotech stocks performed unusually poorly in November. Over the past 10 years, the barometer SPDR S&P Biotech listed fund (NYSEMKT: XBI) has lost ground at the same time during that particular month, and even then this ETF was only down 3.66% for the entire month. Last month was a whole different story, however. The S&P Biotech SPDR ETF lost almost 7% of its value in November 2021, thanks to a gust of headwinds.

Biotech stocks were beaten last month in response to a surge in core inflation in the United States, the emergence of the omicron coronavirus variant on the global stage, the growing appeal of crypto -currencies for risk-tolerant investors, harvesting tax losses and the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Strategic Decision to Prioritize Regulatory Review of COVID-19 Products Over Non-COVID Therapies. This chaotic environment led investors to hit the sell button on dozens of promising biotech stocks in November.

Image source: Getty Images.

So what

For example, cancer immunotherapy companies Adaptimmune Therapeutics (NASDAQ: ADAP) and Agenus (NASDAQ: AGEN) both lost about 18% of their value last month, while the COVID-19 vaccine player Ocugen (NASDAQ: OCGN) saw its shares fall 46% in November, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Adaptimmune shares were sucked into this black hole of negative investor sentiment in November despite the news of several positive developments in recent months. Specifically, Biotech has announced that its lead product candidate, afami-cel, will meet the primary endpoint of its ongoing pivotal synovial sarcoma trial, paving the way for regulatory filing with the FDA. next year.

Adaptimmune also recently announced plans to advance its cell therapy platform in mid-term trials for cancer of the esophagus, esophagogastric junction and ovary. These three indications have the potential for successful sales.

Finally, the biotech has concluded collaboration agreements with Astellas, GlaxoSmithKline, and rock, giving it a cash trail until 2024. In short, this promising cancerous stock arguably was unfairly punished by the gloomy market in November.

Agenus and Ocugen, on the other hand, took a step back last month due to recent key setbacks. In October, Agenus was forced to look to its early stage pipeline as a primary driver of value after the FDA asked the company to withdraw a regulatory dossier for the checkpoint inhibitor balstilimab. Ocugen, on the other hand, has been hit with a clinical suspension by the FDA for its COVID-19 vaccine in partnership with Bharat Biotech, Covaxin. While the COVID-19 vaccine landscape appears to be on the verge of a major overhaul with the emergence of the omicron, it is not entirely clear how the commercial potential of Covaxin will be affected in North America. Time will tell us.

Now what

Are any of these three biotech stocks worth buying after that November swoon? Adaptimmune stands out here as a garish buy. Biotechnology has several catalysts coming up over the next 12 months, and one of its partners may pull it out soon. Agenus and Ocugen, on the other hand, are likely to require some patience from investors. This is not necessarily a bad thing. But the need for a longer term approach with these two biotechnologies reflects recent events.

Ten years of Interact Club

started at Eagan High School

Eagan Rotary Club has discovered that philanthropy can be encouraged among young people.

“Eagan Rotary just made a donation to the Interact Club we created 10 years ago at Eagan High School to encourage volunteerism,” said Sherie Wallace of the Eagan Rotary Club.

The Eagan High club, called Interact Club, currently has 200 student members who have been very busy in the community.

Last year, they helped build a community garden to benefit Open Door, a nonprofit healthy food shelf that aims to provide families with fresh produce.

Eagan High Youth also developed leadership and developed philanthropic skills when the youth together organized two clothing drives to collect donated coats and jeans that could be distributed to those who could benefit from recycled clothing. The students also organized a community blood drive.

Recently, the Eagan Rotary Club donated $ 500 to the Interact Club at Eagan High School. Bill Wirsbinski, school counselor and club leader, leads efforts to celebrate student philanthropy. Members of the Eagan High Interact Club who happily accepted the check were Donald Thai, Hannah Maccarone, a former club president, and Anna Schuller, a current club co-president.

The Interact Club has been busy giving back to the Eagan community throughout the year, Wirsbinski said.

The young people shared their vocal talents during the holiday season through Christmas carols. Students made dog toys for a local pet shelter, sewn face masks and baby blankets, and put in a little elbow grease cleaning a freeway and raking lawns as part of the efforts. embellishment.

Members of the Interact Club realized the importance of giving back in the form of patriotism when they learned of service and sacrifice as soldiers leave their communities and families to protect American freedoms in the United States.

“They wrote 2,000 letters to American soldiers which included 52 treatment packages filled with candy,” Wallace said.

Wirsbinski, explained how he proudly led the young people involved in the Interact club since its inception. He credits him for keeping him positively involved with students during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Thanking Eagan Rotarians for the generous donation, Wirsbinski said, “Interact does not exist without Rotary. “

Eagan Rotary is looking for charitable partners

The Eagan Rotary Club is now seeking charitable partners to continue the efforts of the Interact club and foster philanthropy among young students and future leaders.

The Rotary Club of Eagan is looking for three charitable partners who will become the benefactors of the Live to Give walk scheduled for May 7, 2022.

Up to $ 5,000 will be raised for each partner as the recipient of the funds raised by the walk.

Partnership requirements:

• Promote the event to your constituents through print and digital communications

• Organize a team in costume to join the march

• Set up a table during the event to share information about your organization

• Attend a Rotary Eagan Club meeting to celebrate the Live to Give event, receive the voucher, and share information about your organization.

Charitable partners of the 2021 Live to Give Walk are not eligible.

Humane Society hopes to raise $ 675,000 | New https://passpet.org/humane-society-hopes-to-raise-675000-new/ Fri, 03 Dec 2021 10:00:00 +0000 https://passpet.org/humane-society-hopes-to-raise-675000-new/ The Scott County Humane Society is counting on the community to raise approximately $ 675,000 to build a new adoption center. “We are asking residents of Scott County and animal advocates across the region to help make this happen,” said Carrie Thayer Cardwell, former chair of the Humane Society board who was hired as a […]]]>

The Scott County Humane Society is counting on the community to raise approximately $ 675,000 to build a new adoption center.

“We are asking residents of Scott County and animal advocates across the region to help make this happen,” said Carrie Thayer Cardwell, former chair of the Humane Society board who was hired as a councilor. in development to help raise funds for the new center.

The project was made possible through a bequest allowing the Humane Society to purchase 4.5 acres of land. Now the volunteer-run group must raise funds for the final design and construction of the facility.

So far, they have raised $ 137,425, not including a matching donation from an anonymous donor. Donations made between November 1 and December 31 will be matched up to $ 100,000. The Humane Society therefore hopes to raise at least $ 78,000 more by the end of the year to fully enjoy the game. This will allow them to move forward with the final design and construction process.

The new center would be the first owned by the Humane Society, which currently rents space in the Indian Acres Mall. Having their own facility will reduce the monthly expenses of the humanitarian company as well as provide more space and more suitable facilities for the work they do.

“This is designed to solve a lot of the problems we have right now,” said board chairman Kriss Lowry, discussing the limitations of their current facility which does not have sufficient space for medical quarantines. or meetings and greetings.

The plans for the new 5,000 m². The adoption center includes specialized rooms to isolate quarantined and sick animals, areas for animals to have outdoor access, space for potential adopters to meet available animals and a separate area for small animals like rabbits and hamsters. A new reception area will help them administer community support services like their pet food bank and low-cost sterilization and sterilization program.

The Humane Society houses a small number of cats and small animals at its current facility, but most of their cats and dogs live in foster homes where they are looked after by volunteers. Even with the new center, the Humane Society will continue to be a foster family-based organization.

“As a foster family-based organization, we know pets much better than many other shelters,” said Lowry, discussing the benefits of fostering.

One of the most important things the new center will do will be freeing up space in the municipal shelter, Lowry said. Most of the Humane Society’s adoptable animals come directly from Scott County Care and Control, and Lowry estimates that the Humane Society takes care of about 50 percent of the animals donated to Scott County.

Meanwhile, Humane Society volunteers continue their regular fundraising efforts. Donations and fundraising events provide the majority of the funding for their regular operations and with only two employees, they rely heavily on volunteers to help with promotion, fundraising and events. The cost of veterinary care for animals exceeds $ 10,000 per month.

Ongoing fundraising events include a bourbon bottle raffle and photos with “Santa Paws.” Tickets for the raffle start at $ 5 and can be purchased until December 23. Photos with Santa Paws are by appointment only the first and second weekend in December and start at $ 10.

The humanitarian company currently has over 120 animals in its care. In 2020, 646 cats and 365 dogs have found homes thanks to the Humane Society, and the numbers for 2021 are expected to be even higher.
