This is Money: Is there still time to go bargain hunting for investments?
'Be greedy when others are fearful.' Warren Buffett's investment adage was tested this year when the coronavirus crash hit and sent stock markets tumbling in late February and early March. But as nations went into lockdown, economies nosedived and draconian measures surpassing most seen in living memory were introduced, it was hard for most investors to get up too much of an appetite, however many times they may have heard that line. There seemed to be no way that markets would recover for some time and the most likely course was down. Then the rebound came, but still it all looked to good to be true - as if it was just fools and their money being parted in a FOMO rally. Except, it turned out to have legs. The world's dominant stock market, the US, has been on a tear since late March and many other countries have bounced back too. So, has the opportunity to go bargain hunting passed? Could our own humble stock market be one of the last places left where you can do it? Are we missing a trick and ignoring the fact the world has changed and there is no point talking about cheap value investments, just get on the tech train? On this week's podcast, Georgie Frost and Simon Lambert discuss investing bargains: what that means and whether there are any left? Also, while the stock market has been on the rise, the economy has been taking another lockdown beating. Chancellor Rishi Sunak updated us this week on the state of the UK economy, so how bad was the news? Also this week, NS&I and Marcus cut rates, so what can savers do now, and finally, is triple glazing worth splashing out on?

In this week's show: It’s our Thanksgiving Special! Host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Ron Gross and Jason Moser explain why they’re thankful for Cerence, Nike, and PayPal. We discuss why investors might want to avoid stock market turkeys Blue Apron, Macy’s, and Slack. And since no Thanksgiving is complete without dessert, we dig into a few slices of humble pie and talk Zillow and EPR Properties. Our analysts explain why they don’t want to talk about Robinhood, stock splits, or “Stay at home” stocks at the Thanksgiving table. Plus, we revisit our conversation with Collaborative Fund’s Morgan Housel, author of the best-selling book, The Psychology of Money: Timeless Lessons on Wealth, Greed, and Happiness.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Robotic gardeners, pain relief from tarantulas and cooling camel fur
Steve Caplin discusses the Yardroid, a robotic gardener that can even help guard your property, though he warns that cheap smart doorbells, designed to do just that, can easily give others easy access to your home wifi network. There are more flights to nowhere, this time for Buddhist monks and Taiwanese speed daters. There's a tech game table loaded with board games and Parisian e-bike ambulances. As for the animal kingdom, there's not only talk of pain relief drugs being derived from tarantula venom, but also how camel fur might be used to develop new cooling material.

Economist Questions

Economist Questions: Misreading a Pandemic - Misconceptions and Threats to Effective Vaccination
Many aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been unprecedented – including the extent to which it has forced the UK population to engage with statistics. This has been a challenge for Government, and it has not always gone well. However, with 190 policies enacted in the first six months of the pandemic - costing around £210 bn - it was never going to be easy. We talk to Vicky Pryce, Chief Economic Adviser and board member at the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR), on lessons that can be learnt from the last 9 months. This matters enormously, as a recent global survey identifies a clear relationship between individuals’ trust in information from government and the likelihood of engaging with vaccination programmes.
