Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 15th March, 2020 Most retirees struggle to live off the State Pension alone. Therefore, setting up a private pension to provide an extra level of security in retirement makes a lot of sense.There are plenty of tools to help you do this. For example, any money saved into a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) attracts tax relief at your marginal tax rate. On top of this, any capital gains or income earned on assets held within a SIPP don’t attract further tax liabilities.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…These qualities make SIPPs the perfect tool for pension saving.Beat the State PensionInvesting your money in the stock market via a SIPP could be a great way to beat the State Pension. And you don’t need to be a millionaire to do this either. It’s possible to achieve a passive income in retirement with an initial investment of just £10,000. A lump sum investment of £10,000 would be worth £12,500, including basic-rate tax relief. While there are thousands of possible investments to choose from when looking for a home for your money, it’s essential to keep things simple. With this in mind, the FTSE 100 could be the best option.The best optionAs one of the world’s largest and most liquid stock markets, there’s a range of ways investors can own the FTSE 100. A low-cost tracker fund might be the best prospect.These passive tracker funds only replicate their underlying index, so they tend to be much cheaper than actively managed funds. The best FTSE 100 tracker on the market at the moment charges less than 0.10% in annual management fees. That’s compared to around 1% for most actively managed funds.What’s more, since its inception, the FTSE 100 has returned around 7% per annum. At this rate of return, it would take 40 years to turn an initial pension contribution of £12,500 into a savings pot of £204,000.Based on the FTSE 100’s current dividend yield of 4.8%, a financial nest egg of £204,000 would be enough to throw off a passive income in retirement of £9.8k per year.From the beginning of April, the full rate of the UK’s new State Pension will rise to £175.20 per week or £9.1k per year. The actual amount received will depend on when you reached pensionable age as well as your National Insurance contribution record.The more, the merrierSo, that’s how it’s possible to beat the State Pension with just £10k. However, savers could achieve much better returns by making small contributions along the way.Investing £12.5k in a low-cost FTSE 100 tracker fund is a great way to start saving for the future, but it doesn’t have to stop there. Indeed, additional contributions along the way of £100 a month, or £125 after tax relief, could turbocharge your retirement savings.A saver that makes these additional contributions could have a pension pot worth £534,000 after four decades of saving. That would be more than enough to beat the State Pension.On the FTSE 100’s current dividend yield of 4.8%, this pot could produce an income of £25,600 a year.

The coronavirus has changed the way we live. I think these stocks should benefit

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Paul Summers Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The coronavirus has only being with us for a few months. But it has already had a huge impact on our behaviour. With the probability that the UK could soon be put in lockdown growing by the day, this looks set to continue.Today, I’m focusing on the types of business that might actually see a rise in demand for their goods and services should this happen. But importantly, they could also benefit from longer-term changing habits.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…Wash those handsDebate rages as to whether Boris Johnson’s approach to dealing with the coronavirus outbreak is the correct one. But the advice to wash our hands more frequently is far less contentious.It’s for this reason that companies like PZ Cussons — owner of soap brands such as Imperial Leather and Carex — could see increased demand for its products over this difficult period and beyond. That’s especially so if more of us become conscious of the need for hygiene after the pandemic has passed. Consumer goods giant Reckitt Benckiser is another firm that should benefit. The FTSE 100 member owns brands such as Dettol and Lysol that are likely to be in demand by consumers wishing to cut their chances of getting ill.Order inCrisis or no crisis, we still need to eat. For this reason, supermarket stocks are likely to be in demand for the foreseeable future. Or at least they shouldn’t be subject to the same selling pressure as less defensive businesses.My pick of the UK-listed bunch remains Tesco that has huge market share. More risk-tolerant investors might be drawn to tech-focused Ocado. But I remain wary as it’s still to generate consistent profits. It has already said it’s struggling to cope with orders since the crisis, leading it to take its app offline. Further afield, it may be worth taking a bite of Domino’s Pizza if you think being stuck at home and long-term trends mean more food being delivered to the door. Interestingly, its share price is still far above where it was six months ago.Entertain usLast but not least, we’ll need to do something to take our minds off things. That’s especially so if we’re trying to entertain a young family. Those willing to invest overseas might want to take a closer look at US giants like Netflix and Amazon. In addition to growing its Prime subscription members, the latter could also see a jump in sales of books and music over the period and changing habits could mean rising sales longer term too.  Despite needing to close some of its theme parks, Disney could also gain from more people stuck at home thanks to the forthcoming launch in the UK of its new streaming service, plus there’s the pent-up demand when the crisis has passed.Closer to home, FTSE 100 broadcaster ITV is bargain-basement cheap, even though it’s already warned that advertising revenue will be dented over the next few months. Assuming no dividend cut, the company is forecast to yield a stonking 9.6% this year.An alternative to TV-related stocks would be those in gaming. Although new releases may need to be put back, options here include developers such as Codemasters to Frontier Developments. And if buying a publisher of games feels too risky, there’s always services group Keywords Studios to consider.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

What I look for in a good dividend share

first_imgWhat I look for in a good dividend share Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Investments styles and requirements are as varied as individual investors themselves. One person’s perfect stock is another’s worst. However, in both growth and income investing, there are general principles always worth considering. Here are some things I look for in a good dividend share.Try to reduce riskIf investing with income as the main goal, risk to the initial capital should be at the forefront of one’s mind. A good dividend share is one that maintains, or preferably increases, the capital invested.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…From a practical standpoint, this usually means looking at large, well established firms. Companies with a strong brand and a long history, like those in the FTSE 100, are generally seen as having a lower risk profile.Of course this alone is not enough. It is always worth looking at a company’s finances. I look for a steady history of increasing revenue and profit. Depending on the sector, lower levels of debt are usually a positive as well.Not only does this help mitigate the risk to the invested capital, but should help establish a firm’s ability to pay dividends now and in the future. If a company has poor finances, should it really be handing out cash to investors?Dividend paying historyPast performance in no way guarantees performance in the future. Nevertheless, I think a company that has historically paid steady dividends is usually a better choice that one with a spotty record of dividend payments. Consistent payouts, over say the last five years, can indicate a firm’s commitment to its shareholders.Coupled with this, I think it is always worth looking for dividend growth. A company that has seen its revenue and profits increase year on year, should be able to increase its dividends each year as well, in my view. At the very least a good income share should see dividend growth above inflation.A good dividend yieldYield is considered by many to be the most important aspect of a good dividend share. I think has to be considered in context. For anyone who is unsure, a company pays out dividends on a pence-per-share basis. This means that the percentage return on an investment – the dividend yield – is based on the share price at that time.This can be both good and bad. Classically investors will try to buy a share when its price is low for good growth prospects. From an income perspective, investors are also able to ‘lock in’ a good dividend yield if a share price is low.Of course the reason the share price is low is critical. If a company is fundamentally suffering, the low share price may be too risky. However, there are often many reasons why a company’s share price will be lower than its fundamentals warrant. Fear and greed are key drivers behind share prices, and neither of these emotions is dependent on hard facts.As I began by saying, the true measure of a good dividend share is one that suits the investor’s needs. However when investing for income, I think these general guidelines are a very good place to start.

Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 15th May, 2021 | More on: CCR ITV NFLX center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’ve been looking for cheap UK shares to add to my portfolio to capitalise on the economic recovery. Unfortunately, after the market’s recent performance, many stocks appear expensive. But there are a handful of names I think are still worth buying. With that in mind, here are two cheap UK shares I’d buy for my portfolio right now. 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…Cheap UK sharesThe first company I’d buy is the broadcaster ITV (LSE: ITV). This firm has had a rough 12 months. Advertising revenues collapsed at the beginning of the pandemic, and the group’s production arm also suffered disruption. As a result, revenues plunged. Management had to eliminate the dividend to save cash and tap government funding schemes. ITV made it through the pandemic, and it’s now in recovery mode. Advertising revenues have recovered, and the group is planning a slate of big revenue-generating programmes, such as Love Island and The UEFA European Football Championship, over the next six months. Based on the improving advertising trends seen over the past few months, these could help crystallise ITV’s recovery. Even though ITV is heading in the right direction, the stock remains depressed. Uncertainty about the company’s future, and competition from the likes of Netflix, is putting investors off.There’s still no sight of a return of the group’s dividend. It may never return if the company has to spend more and more to fight off deep-pocketed US peers. This is the most considerable risk the enterprise faces right now. Still, despite this headwind, I’d buy the company today for my portfolio of cheap UK shares. I think ITV has fantastic recovery potential. Drinking boom C&C Group (LSE: CCR), the leading manufacturer, marketer and distributor of premium branded cider, beer, wine & soft drinks, also reported a sharp decline in revenues last year as hospitality businesses across Europe were forced to shut. However, it seems as if this trend has reversed this year. Some reports suggest that brewers are struggling to keep up with the demand from pubs as drinkers return. As of yet, it’s unclear how this will impact C&C. But I think the rising tide should lift all firms in the sector. Even though all indications point to the fact C&C could see a return to growth in the next 12-24 months, the stock is still selling at a price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 11.4. I think that looks cheap. That said, this firm may encounter more issues if there’s another coronavirus wave. C&C may struggle to deal with yet another shutdown. There’s also the risk of competition. The company always needs to try and stay one step ahead of the competition, or it could lose market share. Even after taking these risks into account, I’d buy C&C for my portfolio of cheap UK shares, considering the firm’s potential.  Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

House in Ovar / Paula Santos

first_img Houses Photographs:  Nelson GarridoText description provided by the architects. The house at Ovar, Portugal, is an exercise where we stretched to the limit a number of ideas and concepts for a long time already contained in other projects, which had never been put in place. It is also – and above all – a project, which allows for thinking with other people about their own way of inhabiting a dwelling.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoThe large-scale project, covering 680m2, to be located on not very stable sandy soil  allowed us to ponder the house as an object which develops in a continuum. The need to design the main programme of the house as a ground floor meant that the difference between spaces was implemented by means of variable heights in geometric forms: in respect of their importance and meaning, the most expressive areas such as the swimming pool and the painter’s studio or the body of the entrance from the street acquire more expressive and more elevated forms.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoThe idea for the object in concrete, a traditionally sculptable material, appears implicit in this concept, designing the elevations with level and sloping surfaces up to the coverage. The length of the corridor is used to distribute the desired functions and large areas, further creating clipping plan, which allow for a relation with landscape, with the various wooded areas to be constructed suggesting outdoor leisure. Project gallerySee allShow less’Dove of Peace’ Church / WEAVA ArchitectsArticlesGiveaway Winners: Ten copies of ‘How to Make a Japanese House’Articles Share ArchDaily Portugal Projects House in Ovar / Paula SantosSave this projectSaveHouse in Ovar / Paula Santos Save this picture!© Nelson Garrido+ 16 Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/253066/house-in-ovar-paula-santos Clipboard CopyHouses•Ovar, Portugal Photographs Area:  680 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2008 Architects: Paula Santos Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/253066/house-in-ovar-paula-santos Clipboard “COPY” Year:  House in Ovar / Paula Santos CopyAbout this officePaula Santos ArquitecturaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOvarHousesPortugalPublished on July 11, 2012Cite: “House in Ovar / Paula Santos” 11 Jul 2012.

WTO Will Rule Against Chinese Agriculture Subsidies

first_img WTO Will Rule Against Chinese Agriculture Subsidies By Andy Eubank – Jan 16, 2019 The World Trade Organization will soon rule in favor of the United States in a long-standing dispute with China. The U.S. says Chinese government subsidies it gives to corn and rice growers are a violation of WTO rules. Politico says the confidential ruling was shown to interested parties before Christmas. The ruling could be released to the public sometime in late February when China and the U.S. will hopefully be in the final stages of trade talks. It’s also possible the ruling will be out in early March.It was back in 2015 that then-U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman alleged China had exceeded international limits on ag subsidies by as much as $100 billion in 2015. The Chinese vice premier will lead a delegation to Washington for more trade negotiations on January 30-31. He’ll meet with current U.S. Trade Rep Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Lighthizer met with Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley last week and told Grassley that there hasn’t yet been progress toward structural reforms of China’s trade practices. Lighthizer did tell Grassley that discussions on China purchasing more U.S. farm goods were going well.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News WTO Will Rule Against Chinese Agriculture Subsidies Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleFarm Bureau Adopts 2019 Policies at ConventionNext articleFSA Offices, 8 in Indiana, Open for Three Days Amid Shutdown Andy Eubanklast_img read more

She will dive into that JP job and it will be hers very quickly.”After officially being sworn in, Judge Stacy Trotter, whom Walden also worked for as court coordinator before Smith, welcomed her to the judiciary and presented her with her judge’s robe and a red jabot, neckwear worn by judges.“We do know that those guys downstairs need a little woman’s touch,” Trotter said.Walden will be taking over a seat that has been vacant for about six months, when former Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Christopher Clark vacated the office to become the judge for County Court at Law No. 2.Justices of the peace handle class C misdemeanor cases, like traffic tickets, and small claim civil cases with a jurisdictional limit of $10,000, such as landlord and tenant disputes. They also set bonds, sign arrest warrants and certain search warrants and protective orders and provide marriage licenses.Walden will have some work in front of her, as the backlog created by the vacant seat leaves around 45 to 50 civil cases she needs to handle and around five to 10 criminal cases, and she will began that work when she starts in her new position this morning.
