And I feel the investment trust, managed by Baillie Gifford, provides an opportunity for me at its lower price.Long-term outlookThe aim of SMT is to be an “actively managed, low-cost investment trust, investing in a high-conviction, global portfolio of companies with the aim of maximising its total return to shareholders over the long term”, according to the April 2021 factsheet. And long term is key here. As such, I have no concerns with the short-term volatility it may currently be experiencing. The trust measures performance over a five-year period. Being a long-term investor, I’m happy with that. And I only have to look at the 100% share price rise in 2020 to see the returns SMT can offer.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…So why do I like it for the long term? When looking at the top holdings, I see huge potential. As of April 2021, the portfolio included Tencent, NIO, and Amazon. These companies open avenues for me to the growing tech industry. With the current tech sell-off, I see the exposure SMT can provide to this sector as a good way to diversify my portfolio further, for a good price.And I like the way the managers think ahead. SMT took the decision to halve its position in Tesla earlier this year, banking a profit before the tech sell-off. Moves like this give me confidence for the future active management of the portfolio.Risks with Scottish Mortgage Investment TrustWith the above said, I’m aware of the potential risks that come with SMT. First, fund manager James Anderson intends to step down in April 2022. Having spearheaded the rise of the trust, this could arguably leave future performance in question. After all, Anderson was key in the decision to invest in Tesla back in 2013 when the stock was trading at $6. Could his keen eye be a loss in the years ahead?To add to this, the operation’s large exposure to tech can also be a risk in itself as the current tech sell-off (which my fellow Fool Dylan Hood explained very well) shows. With investor confidence continuing to fall, SMT’s share price could too.My verdictThe news regarding James Anderson may be a blow for investors. He has delivered incredible returns over his time as fund manager. On top of this, the trust has been volatile recently.However, as a long-term investor, I’m not put off by this. SMT has a solid track record and I see the current share price as a good opportunity to buy.The all-time high in February may only be the beginning of what investors could see further down the line.

Trail Blazers players get stuck in elevator for 30 minutes

first_imgThis may not have been the ideal team bonding experience, but a handful of Trail Blazers got to know each other a lot better after spending 30 minutes stuck in an elevator together.The fiasco was captured by Portland center Enes Kanter and forward Meyers Leonard. Zach Collins, Damian Lillard, Anfernee Simons, Skal Labissiere, Evan Turner and Rodney Hood were all trapped, as well.  At one point, Turner said: “This is not how you treat the former No. 1 team in the West.”Lillard was seen sitting with his head resting on his arms in dismay.Enes added: “We’re in survival mode now.” It was equal parts hilarious and uncomfortable. Luckily, the players were eventually able to climb out of the elevator and on to the closest floor.Watch it here:Stuck in the elevator with the squad 🤦🏻‍♂️ 😂 @trailblazers pic.twitter.com/2Yu5zrdFfH— Enes Kanter (@Enes_Kanter) February 26, 2019Just got stuck on the elevator for 30min.
