Is It Safe to Donate Clothes During COVID-19? Here's Everything You Need to Know

  Is It Safe to Donate Clothes During COVID-19? Here's Everything You Need to Know Since we've been staying home, a lot of us have been spending time doing a little spring cleaning and tidying up our closets. This has brought up some important questions, like is it safe to donate or sell clothes right now? Are thrift and consignment stores even open? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines have stated that current evidence suggests the coronavirus "may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials." The CDC also mentioned that there is a low risk of the spread of the disease from mail and packages that are shipped over a period of days.

The shares of Allianz (WKN: 840400) have now recovered somewhat from the corona crisis. With the share certificates of the European insurance industry leader, it recently went up to 170.94 euros (28.05.2020, decisive for all courses). Since the corona low at around 117 euros, the increase is now around 46%.

Stability will have helped the insurer to a large extent: The quarterly figures for the first quarter have been pretty solid so far and have been characterized by moderate declines in earnings . In addition, the DAX insurance group has shown that its own dividend and adherence to the dividend policy are important. Yes, even beyond 2020.

  Animals have mysterious ways of finding their way back home Animals have mysterious ways of finding their way back homeAquatic animals generally just follow currents to open waters, but aromatic awareness comes in handy when it’s time to reverse course to reproduce. Lake sturgeon, for one, hatch in the pebbled depths of Wisconsin’s Kewaunee River and wend up to 100 miles to the Great Lakes, where they mature for a decade or two before the big paddle back. Less than 4 percent settle somewhere new. “They imprint on the river they’re born in,” explains Jessica Collier, a biologist at the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Green Bay.

This operational constitution and the favorable valuation should therefore have been the course drivers. Especially since the alliance continues to lay the foundation for a long-term successful future, as current reports reveal:

A late cleaning up!

As Bloomberg reports these days, the alliance appears to be in a spring cleaning mode. Accordingly, the direct insurer would like to slim down somewhat, particularly in the life insurance segment. In particular, expensive old contracts could leave the insurer's portfolio.

is therefore rumored to have a volume of up to 9 billion euros, which is at the disposition. In Italy, among others, a regional focus is recognizable. However, the US bank Morgan Stanley was entrusted with putting the portfolio to the test and exploring further or more specific options.

would therefore be discussed. The DAX insurer could possibly redeem up to half a billion euros by taking out the said life insurance policies, although some competitors also developed apparently similar plans. Potential buyers are companies specializing in the handling of more complicated old cases, such as the Phoenix Group. Basically an interesting twist, although the volume for a DAX group with a market capitalization of around EUR 72.5 billion is of course comparatively small.

course for a better future

But this measure also shows that Allianz does not take the current status quo for granted. No, even the crisis is used to keep the Munich insurer in shape. However, there are now few lucrative old contracts that could leave Allianz's broader portfolio.

The resulting earnings can help Allianz to expand the already excellent liquidity. Or on the other hand, to finance strategic decisions such as acquisitions or share buybacks. Measures that could significantly improve the insurance group's prospects in the long term.

  Rapper Swarmz 'involved in £250,000 Ferrari crash with London bus' A rapper is believed to have been involved in a crash between a £250,000 Ferrari and a London bus. Swarmz, who has a million Instagram followers, posted videos of the crumpled red 488 GTB on the social media platform after the incident on Northumberland Avenue near central London's Trafalgar Square on Sunday.The Italian sports car, which can reach 205mph, was a write-off after the crash involving a double decker bus, which sustained damage to much of one side, in the 20mph zone.

Such a step, even if it is small, can therefore be worthwhile in two ways. Firstly, by separating operational brakes. On the other hand, however, in order to be able to use the freed-up funds more efficiently. A perspective that investors should like. Even if the step now announced should be comparatively small.

Allianz: an attractive stock?

The management of Allianz therefore shows foresight, especially in the crisis, and continues to prepare for a better operational future. With a price-earnings ratio of just under 9 and a dividend yield of over 5.5%, the stock is also inexpensive. If Allianz finds its way back into the old operational and above all record-breaking track in the medium to long term, this could be an inexpensive valuation measure.

Especially since the management shows that efforts are being made to improve. Even if it's just a comparatively smaller (but still billion-dollar) portfolio of life insurance policies.

While more volatile, growing companies generally deliver higher returns than the alternative.
