Enter Your Email Address The stock market crash means a number of UK shares now trade at cheap prices. Over the long run, they could offer significant capital return potential as their valuations move towards their historic averages.At the same time, popular assets such as gold and buy-to-let property may struggle to keep pace with indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. Their high prices may mean they lack a margin of safety.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…As such, now could be the right time to buy a range of undervalued British stocks in an ISA. Doing so could lead to impressive returns in the coming years.Cheap UK sharesWhile some UK shares have rebounded after the recent market crash, many others continue to trade at low prices relative to their historic averages. Over time, this situation is likely to change. Investor sentiment towards riskier assets, such as equities, is likely to improve as global GDP growth returns to levels more similar to their long-term averages. This could lift valuations across the stock market and allow today’s cheap stocks to experience upward reratings.Furthermore, the financial performances of many businesses are likely to improve. This year, they have faced hugely challenging operating conditions in many cases. While more pain could yet be ahead, the reality is that a more benign operating environment is likely to emerge. This is due to factors such as fiscal and monetary policy stimulus impact on the economic outlook. This could allow today’s cheap UK shares to merit higher valuations as their profitability gradually improves.High prices for gold and buy-to-let propertyWhile many UK shares are currently cheap, other assets such as gold and buy-to-let property appear to lack margins of safety. For example, gold’s price has hit a record high this year due to a weak economic outlook and low interest rates. However, investor sentiment towards the precious metal could moderate over time, as an uncertain economic future gives way to a more prosperous outlook.Meanwhile, high house prices mean investors in buy-to-let property may struggle to obtain a worthwhile long-term return. Factors such as the stamp duty holiday may provide temporary growth for the industry that masks underlying affordability challenges. However, with many first-time buyers struggling to get on the property ladder, a slower pace of house price growth may come into existence further down the line.As such, on a relative basis, owning a portfolio of UK shares could prove to be a profitable move in the long run. Their track record of recovery and current low prices indicate that now may be the right time to start buying them in a tax-efficient account such as an ISA. They could have a more positive impact on your financial situation than gold or buy-to-let property.last_img read more

No savings at 40? I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares to retire happy

first_img Tom Rodgers | Thursday, 15th October, 2020 Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee.

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. If you’ve reached the grand old age of 40 or more with no savings, I think high-yield, cheap FTSE 100 shares are your key to a comfortable retirement.It was about age 35 for me when I woke up one day and realised I’d spent almost every penny I’d ever earned.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…Clearly, my best years were still ahead of me. But without ramping up my savings, I could be facing a retirement of stressful penny-pinching. I’d rather be golfing, treating my grandkids, and thrashing a high-end Lotus down the autobahn, personally.A Cash ISA? Not a good option. At today’s rates of around 1% return per year it doesn’t even cover inflation. I’d basically end up with less money than I put in! But cheap FTSE 100 shares that yield large dividends? Now there’s a compound interest idea I can get behind.Where to startI’ve committed now to saving £500 a month. That’ll get me to £10,000 in two years, on my 40th birthday. Let’s say I buy a 7% yielder like BP. These are certainly cheap FTSE 100 shares. In fact BP is less expensive now that it has been at any point in the last 25 years.I get 7% a year on top of my £10,000. So, each year the company sends me a free £700 for me to use on whatever I want. Some people might withdraw that cash as income and use it to pay bills. This is useful for retirees who don’t have regular money coming in.But if I reinvest the dividends? This is where the magic really starts to happen.How much you makeIn year one you have your original stake of £10,000.In year two, you can buy more FTSE 100 shares with that free £700 the company sent you. So you get £10,700 of company shares (your original stake plus the reinvested dividend amount) for just £10,000.This is what we mean by ‘compound’ rather than ‘simple’ interest. The 7% is added to your new figure of £10,700 rather than your original £10,000 stake.The following year you will receive 7% on top of your £10,700 amount: an extra £749. So inside 24 months your buying power for these cheap FTSE 100 shares has jumped from £10,000 to £11,449.Of course, should you add any more of your own money on top of your original £10,000, you’ll see your wealth really start to fly.Cheap FTSE 100 shares winThe age at which people can claim their State Pension in 2020 is 66. This is set to rise to 67 between 2026 and 2028, and to 68 between 2044 and 2046.So if you’re in your 40s today, you likely won’t be able to retire until you are 68. But extrapolate the dividend yield numbers for another 28 years?By year seven, the £700 annual dividend from your 7%-yielding FTSE 100 shares has morphed into £1,004.26. Your original £10,000 stake is worth £15,350.77.By year 11, you’ve doubled your money and your original £10,000 is worth £20,121.72.Retire happyAnd by the time you retire? When Covid-19 is something they teach in school history classes?In year 28, your £10,000 original stake will buy you an incredible £63,560.81.And this is just from a single set of cheap FTSE 100 shares. Perhaps now you realise why dividend investing is so popular.I’m not saying sticking to the plan is easy. This is where most people invested in FTSE 100 shares fail. But if you can sit on your hands and watch the cash roll in? That’s a happier retirement, guaranteed. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Tom Rodgers Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Save this picture!© Emily Andrews & Ernie ShacklesDaniel’s design response was to wrap the garaging around a central ‘pergatoria’ – a termcoined by the italian architect Terragni for an entry courtyard. The garage doors detailed todisappear into the adjoining cedar exterior. This area also incorporates the entry,conceived as a three level atrium that entices the visitor up to the living level and to theeventual revelation of the views of the Auckland landscape beyond.

Casa Linder is a 3,700 square foot single-family residence located in a well-established, but transitional East Dallas neighborhood. Informed by the owner’s fondness for reclaimed materials, and inspired by the historic architecture of the Texas Blackland Prairie homestead vernacular, Casa Linder embraces the architectural heritage of the earliest Dallas settlers by blending the simple forms and materials of the original prairie dwellings with contemporary planning and crisp detailing.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe roof and exterior walls are clad in recycled, corrugated steel panels intended to patina to a rusty, weathered finish.  At each of the south and north elevations, the walls are clad in reclaimed snow fencing planks.  A gabion wall provides privacy to the pool area and gives texture to the composition of the front elevation.  The interior finishes are modest, consistent, and neutral throughoutSave this picture!© James F. WilsonSave this picture!SchemeThe organization of the plan is conceived as a series of individual “modules” linked together by a continuous hallway.  This long, narrow configuration of spaces allows the building to stretch all the way from the front porch to the garage, an important convenience expressed in the owners’ program.  Outdoor patios are integrated into the plan in order to separate building functions.  At the southern front door entry the patio is created as an indentation in the front façade and provides a covered porch to welcome guests and to enjoy interaction with the neighborhood, another specific request noted in the project program. A second outdoor patio separates the living/dining/kitchen area from the kid’s/study/powder/utility area. This patio serves as an extension of the kitchen for outdoor grilling and provides convenient powder room access for the pool and other outdoor areas.  A third outdoor patio separates the kid’s/study/powder/utility area from the master suite.  As requested by the owner, this patio is given exclusively to the master bedroom and provides a private and secure outdoor space filled with natural light.  Finally, an outdoor patio separates the master bathroom from the garage.  Here again, deference is given to the master bathroom which has translucent glass at the north elevation providing natural light and privacy to the bathroom and dressing areas.last_img read more

81% of UK adults gave to tsunami appeals, says CAF

first_imgThe report confirmed that technology had a major impact on the way in which people pledged their support. It found that 61% of people who gave online did so for the first time, and 41% of those who used a credit or debit card to give by telephone also did so for the first time. Text messaging was used by 1% of donors, all of whom used it for the first time, according to the survey.The survey reported that the public made considerable use of the tax-efficient methods of giving in response to the tsunami disaster. Whereas around 33% of donations to charities are made tax-efficiently, “50% of all donations over £25 were given in this way to the aid effort”, notes CAF.The levels of giving to the tsunami appeal were very high. Half of those surveyed said they had given more in response to the tsunami than to any other cause in the past year: nearly 70% said they had given more to this appeal than to any previous disaster.The key question for many charities is how the disaster appeal will affect donations they might receive this year. When asked about their plans over the next three months, 12% of respondents said that they will have more to give in future, 65% said they will still have the same amount to give to other charities, and 11% said their donation to the tsunami appeal was instead of their usual donation. Only abou 12% said that they now intended to give less.The research was drawn from a survey carried out for CAF during 14 to 16 January 2005 by NOP World Consumer, on a sample of 1000 adults in Great Britain aged over 15.  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Trump is terrorizing migrant workers, time to terrorize back

first_imgTwo weeks.Two weeks that undocumented workers and all im/migrants in this country will be living under increased tension and terror. Some of the migrant children who died in U.S. detention concentration camps between December 2018 and May 2019.On June 17, Donald Trump, one of the most reviled U.S. presidents ever, announced that he would begin massive roundups and deportations of im/migrants.On the eve of a June 18 campaign stop in Orlando, Fla., Trump tweeted: “Next week [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in.” (Politico, June 18)His get-them-all-out attitude instilled a cold chill in im/migrant workers. His campaign stop in Florida was a massive rally that harkened back to KKK events of not long ago. Pandering to his reactionary, nativist, white- supremacist base, he continued to whip up his racist anti-immigrant rhetoric in preparation for the 2020 presidential campaign.It’s important to point out that Orlando has become home to thousands of climate refugees from Puerto Rico, forced out of their homeland in record numbers after Hurricane Maria (also known as Hurricane Colonialism). Where have the Democrats been?The Democratic Party establishment responded on June 22 to Trump’s tweet, opposing his announcement. Party leader Nancy Pelosi stated that Trump’s “planned raids were heartless” and would “inject terror into our communities.” (CNN, June 22)Where has Pelosi been? Under a rock? Yes, the raids are heartless, but terror has been injected into immigrant communities for some time now.Next Trump tweeted that he was delaying the deportations for two weeks “at the request of Democrats.” Trump threatened that, if Washington lawmakers didn’t approve immigration asylum law in that time, he would direct ICE agents to resume the raids.But what happens after those two weeks? Does anyone actually expect anything different on immigration policy? Absolutely not.Under the Trump administration, deportations, detainments and harassment of immigrant workers in the U.S. have been relentless. Advocates report that for the countless migrants who go to court for their deportation hearing, or any kind of appointment, their appearance can mean deportation — right then and there.Soft raids have been taking place, Pelosi. Where was Democratic outrage then?Migrants, documented or not, are living under a cloud of intense terror as they never know whether on their job, in court or at a stop light, they will be picked up. Teachers report that the stress level for children of migrants has skyrocketed as children worry if they will come home after school to an empty house.And the crisis at the Southern border goes on, where forced migration means record numbers of migrants traveling in unprecedented caravans. They have been met with cruelty, even though migrants are eligible for asylum.After two weeks, all these conditions will only continue.Who is to blame?Since 2006, both capitalist parties have attempted to solve the economic crisis on the backs of migrants, using a campaign to criminalize and deport workers. Pelosi’s party under Barack Obama became the party whose president deported more workers than any other U.S. president — ever. Who’s heartless now, Pelosi?This terror, of course, has been greatly aggravated — in fact, is on steroids — under Donald Trump. But both parties have criminalized migrant workers and militarized the Southern border. Both parties have been complicit with the capitalist class in providing a controlled source of labor power that can be super-exploited at their whim.Anti-immigrant rhetoric and policy are being used to divide and conquer the working class. It is also used to derail attention on other critical issues.Pelosi refers to “our communities.” Yet the Democrats have done nothing to defend Dreamers brought to the U.S. as children, win asylum for those who desperately need it or stop the deportations. The Democrats have continued to support imperialist policies that destabilize nations, such as when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton backed the right-wing coup in Honduras in 2009.Migrants are nothing more than pawns for Washington players, both the Democrats and the Republicans.Nonetheless, it is the Trumpites who have veered into fascist. white- supremacist territory. But it won’t be the Democrats who can stop that.Terror 2019 styleWhere is Pelosi’s compassion for the children in inhumane conditions held in detention? Child detentions, child deaths have skyrocketed. Migrants — many of them trans people — have died in detention due to callous neglect. U.S. Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez received flak for calling them concentration camps.  But the left has been correct in calling them such for some time now. How else can one explain the conditions? Or re-opening the same military base that held Japanese citizens interned during World War ll — to hold im/migrants now?Just like prisons in the U.S, these detention centers have become concentration camps for the poor.On June 21, CNN, based on an Associated Press exposé, ran a news story, “Lack of soap, filthy onesies and too few beds have created a ‘health crisis’ at border detention facilities, monitors warn.” After visiting the Ursula Processing Center in McAllen, Texas, attorney Toby Gialluca said, “”There was just a pervasive health crisis. Virtually everyone we saw was ill.”A Human Rights Watch researcher said: “The kids had colds and were sick and said they didn’t have access to soap to wash their hands. Some kids who were detained for 2-3 weeks had only one or two opportunities to shower. One said they hadn’t showered in three weeks. Hygiene and living conditions like this creates a risk of spreading infectious disease. It makes me very concerned about the public health emergency.”It can be assumed that all detention centers have similar conditions.Stop the war of terror against migrantsBoth Pelosi and Trump must hear from the workers in this country that all  this policy is terror.Some Democratic mayor or state officials have announced that they would not cooperate with ICE agents. This is nice optics, and an important gain.But it is only the U.S. working class — those who have some legal protections because they are documented — who can truly and genuinely stop this terror against migrant workers.The war of terror on migrants is a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. A six-year-old child from India died in the desert near Arizona recently. Remarkably more and more migrants at the Mexican U.S. border are not just from Central America. They are from Cameroon, India, Bangladesh, Syria and so on. In unprecedented numbers, more and more workers are leaving their homelands and going further than ever to find some relief from the global attacks of capitalism.The migrant crisis is global. Let’s make our response global.In September, young people from around the world have called for a general strike to demand an end to climate change. This movement must be inextricably, genuinely connected to the migrant crisis.A global strike is desperately needed to push back the terrorist war on our class. That is the way to stop this global war.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
