£20k to invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA? Here’s how I’d aim to beat cash savings, buy-to-let and gold

Harvey Jones | Monday, 13th January, 2020 I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Buy-to-let properties, gold and cash savings remain hugely popular among investors, but I’m not sure they merit their current popularity.While all three have delivered strong returns at different stages of the investment cycle, I believe the future could be tougher.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…If I had £20k to invest, or any other sum for that matter, my first port of call would be the stock market, by investing tax-free in a Stocks and Shares ISA. Over the longer run, I believe shares should deliver higher returns than most other asset classes.Tough times aheadIt’s a long time since people hailed cash as king. These days, the average Cash ISA pays around 0.5%, while even the best-buy offerings pay little more than 1% with instant access. With Bank of England governor Mark Carney recently suggesting it could cut today’s base rate from 0.75%, there is no sign of any improvement, and money held in cash will struggle to keep up with inflation.Gold has surged over the last year, boosted by economic and political uncertainty, and low global interest rates. However, after rising more than 20% in the last year to today’s $1,550 an ounce, I’m not sure it has much further to go. If investor sentiment picks up, the gold price could retreat.Similarly, buy-to-let’s glory days may be over. As house prices slow and yields fall, the capital growth and income you are likely to earn is falling. Buy-to-let is now heavily taxed, so making your fortune on the property market is more challenging than before.Here’s what I’d doGiven the headwinds facing cash, buy-to-let property and gold, I would prefer to invest in a spread of companies through a Stocks and Shares ISA. Blue-chip stocks on the FTSE 100 currently yield 4.36% a year, far more than any Cash ISA, while the FTSE 250 index of medium-sized companies may offer faster growth prospects. Shares are riskier than cash in the short term, but much more rewarding over a longer period.The IMF predicts the global economy will grow by 3.4% in 2020, higher than last year’s estimated 3%, and this should support markets around the world. Investing in businesses that are well placed to capitalise on this, both in the UK and emerging markets, looks sensible to me.Building a balanced spread of high-quality growth and income stocks could help you generate higher returns than most other asset classes. Better still, by investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA, you do not have to pay any tax on your income and growth, for life. You could invest in top FTSE 100 stocks to give yourself a passive income, where the money rolls in without you actually doing anything.2019 was a terrific year and some reckon that investing is a no-brainer in 2020. This may now be the time to shun property, gold and cash and increase your exposure to top companies using your Stocks and Shares ISA. Whether you invest £1k, £20k or £100k, shares look like the best way to build your long-term wealth today. See all posts by Harvey Jones 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.

Six Nations tweets of the week: Johnny Sexton, James Bond and HIAs

first_imgDespite the heavy defeat, Stuart Hogg swapped shirts with opposite number Leigh Halfpenny and had a chat as they walked off the Principality Stadium pitch – a moment of shared respect: The best Six Nations tweets of the weekWe’ve trawled through Twitter to bring you the best Six Nations tweets of the week from the opening week of the 2018 championship.Wales started their Six Nations campaign with a stunning 34-7 victory over Scotland in Cardiff.Against the odds, Wales blew Scotland away in the first match of this year’s championship and the moment of the match was possibly this fantastic ‘superman’ finish from Steff Evans to secure the bonus-point win: Despite the perfect finish for Ireland in Paris, the game was overshadowed somewhat by the controversy surrounding the HIA protocol, with two France players sent for head injury assessments by the independent match doctor when they also had knee injuries: Sam Simmonds sparkled on his Six Nations debut, bagging two tries, and Alec Hepburn also came off the bench to win his first England cap: The man himself tweeted a series of photos of the celebrations that followed the kick – in the third pic Sexton is under there somewhere: Hundreds of people turned to Twitter to express their thoughts on Sexton’s nerves of steel, including former England wing Ugo Monye: England got their Six Nations campaign up and running with a seven-try win against Italy. Double try-scorer and Man of the Match Anthony Watson got a visit from James Bond, aka Daniel Craig, after the game: In the second game of the weekend, Ireland played France in Paris and won their opening game 15-13 thanks to a sensational last-minute drop-goal from Johnny Sexton.But before the drama at the death and the debate surrounding HIA calls, France wing Teddy Thomas scored an early contender for try of the tournament: In the 83rd minute and after more than 40 phases, Sexton then slotted a fairytale 42-metre drop-goal to win the match for Ireland – and the Dublin Fire Brigade were hoping for a quiet evening: 007 was sporting an uncharacteristic double-denim ensemble: Johnny Sexton was hailed as the Irish saviour on social media afterwards: Brian O’Driscoll doesn’t pull any punches with his thoughts on the matter: We’ve rounded up the best of social media from the opening weekend of the 2018 Six Nationslast_img

first_img August 12, 2020 Find out more JordanMiddle East – North Africa June 28, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cyber-dissident pardoned by King Abdullah The pardon did not cancel the 18-month prison term she received on 29 May from the state security court for publishing allegedly false information abroad harming the reputation of the state and its officials. The conviction may prevent her from running in the next parliamentary elections. ______________________________________________________________11.06.2002 – Great concern about the health of Toujan el-FaisalReporters Without Borders said today it was very concerned about the health of imprisoned Jordanian cyber-dissident Toujan El-Faisal, hospitalised several days ago as a result of a hunger strike, and called for her immediate release.”The Jordanian authorities will have a big responsibility if her health worsens because they fail to take her protest seriously and do not improve her conditions of detention,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.Noting that the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression said in a January 2000 report that imprisonment for peacefully expressing an opinion was a serious human rights violation, he urged Jordan to drop all charges against her. Receive email alerts Imprisoned Jordanian cyber-dissident Toujan el-Faisal was pardoned on 26 June by King Abdullah, one day after the country’s Chechen-Circassian community, to which she belongs, had appealed for her release on humanitarian grounds. She had been on hunger strike for 29 days. Faisal told the daily Jordan Times she was grateful to human rights organisations and activists who had pressed for her release. She said she planned to go to Syria to recuperate at the home of her cousin. She lost 16 kgs during her hunger strike. June 15, 2020 Find out more   Faisal, who was Jordan’s first-ever female member of parliament, has been in the King Hussein Medical Centre in Amman since 9 June, suffering from severe dehydration due to a hunger strike she started at the beginning of the month to protest against her conditions of detention at the Jweidah Women’s Correctional and Rehabilitation Centre. Her brother Mohammed said she had lost a lot of weight and had kidney problems from dehydration.Faisal, who was arrested on 29 March, was sentenced to the maximum 18 months imprisonment by the state security court on 16 May for publishing allegedly false information abroad harming the reputation of the state and its officials. She was also accused of having insulted the country’s legal system in an interview with the Qatari TV station Al-Jazeera in which she denounced the corruption of Jordan’s courts. No appeal can be made against the state security court’s decisions.In an open letter that appeared on the website of the Houston (Texas)-based Arab Times ( on 6 March, Faisal accused Prime Minister Ali Abu Ragheb of having profited financially from a government decision to double vehicle insurance rates.Faisal appealed to the supreme court on 29 May to annul her conviction, on grounds that her constitutional and human rights were violated, notably because she was not allowed to summon witnesses, including the prime minister.Since the beginning of this year, three journalists have been arrested in Jordan and two weeklies censored.

Local parties fighting undervoting

first_imgLocal NewsGovernment Pinterest Sample ballots. By admin – March 2, 2018 WhatsApp Facebook WhatsApp Pinterestcenter_img 2018 Election logo Election season is here again, providing voters of both parties a long list of local and statewide primary candidates to vote for.Voters, aware of it or not, may not always select a candidate in every category. This is known as undervoting, when a voter does not select a candidate in every category, though the option is available to them.While it may seem inconsequential at first, undervoting has had effects in the past. In the November 2016 election, District 1 City Councilman Malcolm Hamilton won his election with a total of 1,189 votes, 266 votes more than his opponent, Jo Ann Davenport Littleton.But of the 2,112 votes cast in that election, there were also 1,891 undervotes, meaning 1,891 voters had the option to vote in the election, but did not do so.Ector County Elections Administrator Lisa Sertuche said there is no way of telling how many undervotes there have been in the current election so far until after polls have closed. She said the amount of undervoting can depend on the election, such as if it’s an election for constitutional amendments.JoAnna Wells, Ector County Democratic Chairwoman, said undervoting is a chronic problem no matter the political party.“They’re not getting the full weight of their full voting potential, particularly in local races,” Wells said about voters.Wells said she contributed the problem of undervoting primarily to a lack of understanding of voting machines.“When you have a ballot by mail, it’s easy. You can see to the end how many pages you have to go,” she said. “On a machine, you don’t necessarily know. You might be ready to cast your ballot and you don’t realize you’re making propositions.”She also said another contributing factor could be people who want to vote for just one person, such as a candidate for president or governor.“It definitely impacts the final numbers,” Wells said. “It lends itself to that issue of ‘well, my one vote isn’t going to matter,’ but that is one vote of a collective.”Ector County Republican Chairwoman Tisha Crow said another reason for undervoting could have something to do with a lack of familiarity with local candidates. She said the Ector County Republican Party will host forums for local candidates so the community can become familiar with them, but their last forum for justice of the peace candidates did not have a large attendance.“If they don’t know Paul or Steve, why would they vote for Paul or Steve?” Crow said.Early voting in Ector County ends at 7 p.m. today, and Election Day is Tuesday, with polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.More Information Facebook Local parties fighting undervoting Twitter Twitter Previous articleDonahew back at Dos in MayNext articleCity considers partnership on courthouse adminlast_img

Memorial Day holds more meaning for Odessa sailor

first_img By admin – May 27, 2018 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School WhatsApp Some Odessans will be off work and showing their respect to the U.S. soldiers and veterans for Memorial Day locally, but one will be celebrating the holiday on a U.S. Navy ship in Japan with her fellow sailors.Gunner’s Mate Second Class Brenna Benham said her and her shipmates will be having a “steel beach picnic” where everyone goes onto the flight deck and grills hot dogs and hamburgers and celebrates the holiday.“We all just come together as a crew and a family and play games and remember the people who have gone before us and honor them,” Benham said.As a Gunner’s Mate, Benham is stationed on the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville in Yokosuka, Japan. Her job involves working on missiles as a vertical launching systems technician, making sure missiles are operable and working properly should their use be needed.Benham will be going home on leave in July, but said she plans to make a career in the Navy.“Now that I’m a part of this job, I realize how much it’s helped me grow and, being on a different side of the world, it’s really shown me there’s much more in life than staying in one spot,” Benham said.Benham was born in New Mexico, but raised in Odessa, and graduated from Permian High School. Right before her graduation, she enlisted in the Navy, and shipped off to boot camp two months later, something she said she was inspired to do by her grandfather, who also served in the Navy. Almost four years later, she’s still there.“I knew I wanted to join the military because it’s something bigger than I am,” Benham said. “It would mean a lot to my family and to me, so I thought it would be a really good route to take for me to better my future.”Benham said Memorial Day has grown in significance for her since she joined the military, and has given her greater respect for those who have gone before her fighting for this country.“It’s an honor being able to step forward for my family and friends back home and know that I’m a part of something bigger than myself and making a difference in small steps,” she said. “It’s one of those things that really makes you realize what an honor it is to serve in the world’s greatest Navy.” Facebook Previous articleLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Will employers ever learn?Next articleNimitz student to return to National Spelling Bee admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Creamy Fruit SaladSouthern Style Potato SaladTexas Fried ChickenPowered By 10 Sec How to Cook Scrambled Eggs NextStay Facebook Twittercenter_img Pinterest Pinterest Local News Memorial Day holds more meaning for Odessa sailor Twitter Home Local News Memorial Day holds more meaning for Odessa sailor ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ OC employee of the year always learning Photo Caption: 180519-N-ZL062-0043 YOKOSUKA, Japan (May 19, 2018) Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Brenna Benham, from Odessa, Texas, left, and Personnel Specialist 3rd Class Jesus Maldonado stand a small craft attack team watch on the fantail of the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG 62) during a sea and anchor detail as the ship gets underway for a regularly scheduled patrol.
