Why I think £10,000 invested in bargain FTSE 100 stocks today can help you retire early

first_imgWhy I think £10,000 invested in bargain FTSE 100 stocks today can help you retire early Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Peter Stephens | Saturday, 16th May, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Image source: Getty Images. 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. The FTSE 100’s recent market crash could cause investors to become increasingly cautious about the prospect of investing their retirement savings in large-cap shares. After all, the index could experience a period of decline after its rebound, since the outlook for the world economy is highly uncertain.However, the relative appeal of FTSE 100 shares and their low valuations means that now could be an opportune moment to buy a selection of stocks with £10,000, or any other amount. They may deliver strong long-term recoveries that increase your chances of retiring early.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…Long-term rebound potentialThe recent performance of FTSE 100 shares has been highly disappointing. However, the index has often experienced such periods throughout its history. In other words, its progress has never been smooth or linear. However, it has been able to deliver significantly higher returns than other major asset classes, such as cash and bonds, over a prolonged period of time.Since many people who are investing for their retirement are likely to have a long-term time horizon, FTSE 100 shares could be relatively appealing at the present time. Low interest rates mean that the spending power of cash and bonds may decline, since their returns may be below inflation. Meanwhile, buy-to-let property may struggle to produce strong gains as tax rises and tighter borrowing requirements could make it a less attractive asset class than it has been in recent years.Therefore, on a relative basis, the FTSE 100 seems to offer the most appealing means of generating high returns in the long run. Its capacity to recover from bear markets and downturns means that it could offer stronger returns than its recent performance suggests.Low valuationsThe prospects for the FTSE 100 may be more enticing following its decline in 2020 than they have been for a number of years. In many cases, the valuations of large-cap shares are significantly below their long-term averages. This could mean that they offer greater capital growth potential over the coming years, since they are starting at a lower base from which to increase in price.Certainly, in some cases low valuations are deserved. Some sectors face hugely challenging outlooks that could lead to depressed sales and profit for many months. However, other stocks trade on low valuations because of the relative unpopularity of the index at a time when many investors are seeking less risky assets. This could enable long-term investors to access undervalued shares across the index’s various sectors.Investing in FTSE 100 shares todayMany people may not have a sizeable sum of money, such as £10,000, available to invest today. However, starting to plan for your retirement with smaller amounts invested in a diverse range of FTSE 100 stocks could be a worthwhile move. It could bring your retirement a step closer – especially at a time when there are low valuations and a lack of appeal among other assets.

15 Staycation Options for Spring Break

first_img Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Spring Break is just a few weeks away, so it’s time to start planning what to do. Going on vacation can get expensive, so we’ve compiled 15 ways you can have a great staycation at home with your family.Set some ground rules – To fight the feeling that you’re just staying at home and not really on vacation, shake things up a bit by setting some rules for things that will bring you out of the norm. Try a day (or the whole week) without emails or app games, no frozen food, no worrying, no fighting are some good ones to start off with.Plan ahead – Just like an away vacation, planning ahead will help make things go smoothly. It’s okay to plan a lot of things. You may not get to all of them, but choose your favorite staycation ideas and roll with it.kids child fingerpaint artTurn off the TV! – While binge-watching Netflix may be fun for the first day or two, it’ll get old quick. TV is good to zone out to and relax, but too much sedentary time will leave you feeling unsatisfied with your stay at home.Be Creative – Try out some of those Pinterest crafts you’ve been saving for a rainy day, or have the kids help you come up with a new game.Camp in the backyard – It may not be the mountains, but this takes you out of the house and into a new environment, plus you get easy access to your own restroom and kitchen.Cook together – Cooking is a wonderful activity to bring the family together. Give small children something easy like breaking eggs or stirring batter and older kids can handle things like chopping onions and vegetables. Food tastes better when prepared together.Makeovers – Let your kids give you a crazy hairstyle and dress up as something ridiculous. Even dad can join in by putting on that old 80s getup and pretending to be a rock star or something similar.Try Geocaching – If you haven’t heard of Geocaching, it’s basically a worldwide scavenger hunt that’s fun for the whole family. It works by someone hiding a small canister with a logbook and posting clues to the Geocaching online database, then anyone can look up the clues and go hunting. Caches are EVERYWHERE. There may even be one in your very own neighborhood. When you’ve made a find, put your username in the logbook and put the canister back where it was found. Geocaching is all about the thrill of the hunt. The only prize is the joy of making a find, which is plenty satisfying. There’s a great Geocaching app for Android called “c:geo” and a one for Apple called “Geo Bucket.” You can also find more information online here.Water fun time – If it’s warm enough outside, pull out the hose and get wet on a backyard slip and slide or with sprinkler mayhem. Get the kids some water guns and release them to play water tag.Board game tournament – Pull out your favorite board games and gather everyone around. Play it tournament style to make it more interesting. You can even make prizes like no chores for a day or extra screen time.Visit a State Park – Just because it’s a staycation doesn’t mean you have to stay inside. March is a great time to fly a kite or take the kids on a hike or bike ride in any one of Florida’s State Parks.Backyard games – Dust off the soccer ball, volleyball net, frisbee, croquet set or other outdoor toys and make your backyard a grassy field of entertainment.Build something – There are plenty of online woodworking guides for building a simple birdhouse, workbench, rolling toy animal or any number of other things you can build together with your kids with a few pieces of wood and glue or nails. If you’re feeling really crafty maybe even work on that tree house you’ve been thinking about.Family film festival – Pick a day to host your own family film festival. Have each family member pick a movie and then take turns rating and discussing after each film to make it more lively and turn it into a bonding experience.RELAX – Don’t spend too much time fretting over what comes next. Sit back in a comfy chair, take a deep breath, read a good book and be glad you’re not fighting tourists for the best spot on the beach or taking on the traffic in Orlando, Daytona Beach, or Ft. Lauderdale.

It also had to make the most of the green space.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Fourth Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!© Quang DamThe proposed solution was using lightweight structures to change the internal space; redistribution of uses: entrances, stairs; and light structures help to save costs in terms of both materials and construction labor.

Protest of mayor’s housing policies says: ‘New York City is NOT for sale!’

first_imgJohnnie Stevens, speaking, and Ed Figueroa at New York’s City Hall on Sept. 8 to protest mayor’s housing policies.At New York’s City Hall, Johnnie Stevens from the Oscar-Mandela Committee addressed a protest on Sept. 8 aimed against Mayor Bill de Blasio’s housing policies, which are displacing thousands of people. He blasted the mayor’s pro-big-real-estate rezoning plans as “racist to the core.” This was illustrated by a placard depicting both de Blasio and billionaire businessman President Donald Trump.Ed Figueroa of the South Bronx Community Center chaired the rally and introduced speakers, including Yu Qiong of Local 318 of the Restaurant Workers Union and Marina Figueroa of the East Harlem PreservationOrganization. They expressed anger at elected representatives who don’t represent the working class, and particularly, communities of color.When speaking of the displacement of workers and communities of color, Stevens denounced the culprits. “This is Wall Street!” he asserted. And he urged the building of a broad movement to stop millionaire developers and de Blasio.This protest was called by the Citywide Alliance Against Displacement and drew a large delegation from Chinatown. This community has rallied with friends and neighbors from the Lower East Side and the Bronx to save their affordable apartments and neighborhoods from being displaced by highly profitable high-rise condominiums and hotels for the wealthy.A coalition of 60 organizations built the Chinatown Working Group Rezoning Plan to protect their neighborhoods from displacement and real estate moguls’ overdevelopment. But City Council member Margaret Chin and de Blasio blocked their plan.De Blasio is currently under attack by tenants, immigrants and other oppressed communities, as well as housing rights and social justice activists who are fighting racist gentrification around the city. Unsurprisingly, the Real Estate Board of New York, the top luxury developers’ lobby, has hailed the mayor’s policies. But to many New Yorkers, de Blasio is known as “the mayor of displacement, broken windows policing and corruption.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Americas

first_img United States and Chile affected by protests, Brazil crippled by insecurityThe worldwide wave of protests in 2011 also swept through the New World. It dragged the United States (47th) and Chile (80th) down the index, costing them 27 and 47 places respectively. The crackdown on protest movements and the accompanying excesses took their toll on journalists. In the space of two months in the United States, more than 25 were subjected to arrests and beatings at the hands of police who were quick to issue indictments for inappropriate behaviour, public nuisance or even lack of accreditationIn Chile, where student protesters questioned the over-concentration of media ownership, violence against journalists included beatings, cyber-attacks and attacks on editorial staffs. Many of these assaults, often accompanied by heavy-handed arrests and destruction of equipment, were carried out by abusive armed police who were rarely called to account.Neighbouring Argentina (47th) barely moved in the index but two other southern countries registered a marked decline – Brazil (99th, down 41) and Paraguay (80th, down 26). Violence was the dominant factor in these changes. In Brazil’s north and north-east and in Paraguay’s border regions, local corruption, organized crime and environmental damage proved to be dangerous topics for journalists and bloggers alike to tackle. Three were killed in Brazil in 2011. Although the vast country showed it was making efforts to combat impunity, justice was applied unevenly across regions and states and was subjected to powerful political pressures. This was also the case in Paraguay, where one journalist was killed. Paraguay’s media workers bemoaned the lack of a law giving access to public information like the one passed recently in Brazil. The physical danger in Brazil was comparable to that in Peru (115th), where three journalists were also murdered. Peru, notorious for the frequency of attacks on the press, also stood out because of its large number of legal proceedings for defamation. The radio and television journalist Paul Garay Ramírez spent six months in prison, from April until October, for allegedly defaming a prosecutor.In Ecuador (104th) and Bolivia (108th), whose positions changed little, the climate was still characterized by judicial harassment, issues of balance and pluralism, polarization and repeated attacks on the press. This was even more the case in Venezuela (117th), which nonetheless rose 16 places.Colombia (143rd), where one journalist was killed as a direct result of his work, remained far down the list because journalists were repeatedly threatened, forced to stop working or forced to flee abroad (or to another region), particularly journalists operating in areas where there is fighting. Despite improvements in the judicial system, the country has not yet put its years of civil war behind it, nor the grim practices of the former DAS security service such as espionage, sabotage and smear campaigns. January 25, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Americas Americas News News Help by sharing this information Contrasting fortunes in Central AmericaPanama fell 32 places to 113th in the index because of a radio station owner’s murder and the expulsion of two Spanish journalists who supported indigenous groups resisting the mining industry’s attempts to take their land. A bad atmosphere, marked by smear campaigns against individual journalists, prevailed between the government of President Ricardo Martinelli and much of the media.In Guatemala (97th, down 20 places), already ranked low because of violent crime, habitual self-censorship and a lack of pluralism, a journalist was detained without proof in 2011. In the Dominican Republic (95th), a journalist was murdered several weeks after spending six days in detention on a defamation charge . Frequent instances of police abuse were reported.In neighbouring Haiti (52nd), on the slow road to recovery after the 2010 earthquake, rising political tension in the run-up to the swearing-in of President Michel Martelly on 14 May did not reach the point where it affected the safety of journalists. Similarly in Nicaragua (72nd, up 11 places), the political polarization during the run-up to Daniel Ortega’s re-election as president in November turned out to have little effect on the work of journalists or their freedom of movement. Despite instances of serious threats, the country moved up several places, as did El Salvador (37th, up 14) thanks to a fall in the number of assaults. Costa Rica (19th) topped the list of Latin American countries in 2011, a position for which it traditionally vies with Uruguay (32nd). Its ranking is in marked contrast to that of its Central American neighbour, Honduras (135th), which has languished at the bottom of the list since the coup in June 2009. The deaths of five journalists in 2011, two as a direct result of their work, as well as the regular persecution of opposition media and community radio stations, confirmed its notoriety as the hemisphere’s second most dangerous country for the press after Mexico (149th, down 13 places).Mexico continued its decline against the grim backdrop of the federal government’s offensive against drug trafficking, which has cost 50,000 lives in five years. As well as journalists, five of whom were murdered in 2011, netizens who take a stand against the prevailing violence are now also becoming the targets for killings and reprisals.Bringing up the rear in the hemisphere, Cuba (167th) released the last of its jailed dissident journalists on 8 March, the only one still held of those detained during the “Black Spring” of 2003. However, it did not fulfil the hopes this raised of an improvement in civil liberties and human rights. Crackdowns and short-term detentions continued to be a threat for journalists and bloggers outside state control. As well as Canada (10th, up 11 places), which recovered the hemisphere’s top ranking, Jamaica (16th), Surinam (22nd, up 13) and the seven-member Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (25th, up 32) also improved their position in the index thanks to an almost total lack of acts of violence or serious breaches of freedom of information.There was a surprise of a different kind in Trinidad and Tobago (50th, down 20 places) as a result of a scandal involving spying on journalists, as well as moves to boycott radio and television stations and procedural abuses.Conditions in Guyana (58th), where radio broadcasting is still a state monopoly, were similar and its ranking was unchanged.

Cyber-dissident Nguyen Vu Binh enters third week of hunger strike

first_img May 21, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cyber-dissident Nguyen Vu Binh enters third week of hunger strike RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang April 22, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today voiced deep concern about the health of cyber-dissident Nguyen Vu Binh, who has been on hunger strike since 5 May when an appeal court upheld his seven-year prison sentence and he responded by announcing that “freedom or death” were now the only options left to him.The organisation called on the Vietnamese authorities to provide him with all the medical attention necessary to ensure his survival. It also urged them to let his wife visit him in Ba Sao prison.He was transferred to Ba Sao (in Nam Ha province, 100 km from Hanoi) some time between 15 and 18 May, when his state of health was already deteriorating alarmingly. His wife has not been allowed to visit him and is not even sure if he is still alive.Binh is staging the hunger strike to protest against the iniquity of his sentence of seven years in prison followed by three years under house arrest. The sentence has been upheld amid a growing crackdown on online free expression. Three decrees were recently adopted creating a legal framework for control of the Internet. One of them forces cybercafé owners to ask customers to show ID before they can go online, thereby making it easier for the authorities to identify those who post or send “subversive” messages.Background :A former journalist with the Communist Party newspaper Tap Chi Cong San (Communist Reviews), Binh is a pro-democracy activist and the founder of Democracy and Freedom (an independent group). Since 2001, he has written and posted many messages online calling for political and economic reforms in Vietnam.He was accused of links with “subversive dissidents” such as Le Chi Quang and Pham Hong Son, who are also in prison, and he was alleged to have received 4.5 million Vietnamese dong (about 230 euros) from “a reactionary organisation based abroad.”The authorities objected to his participation in an anti-corruption group and his request in 2000 for permission to create a liberal democratic party. He was also accused of posting “reactionary” articles on the Internet, including an essay entitled “Reflection on the Sino-Vietnamese border accords” in which he criticised the 1999 treaty between China and Vietnam.

Memphis, Tennessee led the nation in vacancy rates at 8.4 percent in December.Rents rose 3.4 percent in December according to Morningstar, marking the smallest rent increase of 2016. The only downside to today’s data was a rise in delinquency rates to .9 percent from .6 percent a month prior.The good news isn’t just coming from vacancy rates. Improvement in sponsor’ business models and strategies are benefiting single-family rental transactions, according to a report issued by Moody’s.Sponsors have shifted their business strategies after buying up distressed properties from depressed markets in bulk in ways that are improving the quality of the properties’ backing transactions.“With the US housing market recovering from the financial crisis and the inventory of distressed homes shrinking, sponsors of SFR transactions have been transitioning from the bulk purchase of single-family homes to more strategic purchases in markets with higher rental yield, while also selling low-yielding properties,” says Moody’s analyst Padma Rajagopal. “The quality of their portfolios has improved as a result.”Rajagopal says SFR operators are now increasingly acquiring properties on a one-by-one basis and through multiple listing service sales, as opposed to auctions. Unlike auctions, such sales allow the borrower to assess a home’s condition, resulting in lower future unexpected rehabilitation costs. Where SFR operators spent around $100 million a month on acquisitions in 2013, they now spend $20 million to $30 million a month.Rajagopal also said SFR sponsors are investing more in technology and property management infrastructure, improving their cost management and operating efficiency.“They are increasingly using ‘smart home’ technology to improve the desirability of homes, for example, and are reducing costs through more efficient turn management and by outsourcing certain tasks,” Rajagopal said.Moody’s expects the SFR market to remain healthy in the coming years, though several factors could still test its strength and limit its growth, the rating agency says. The shrinking inventory of distressed single-family homes and yield constraints, for example, could see operators purchasing lower quality, non-distressed properties. And if they move further down the credit spectrum in terms of either home or tenant quality, the credit quality of SFR transactions could suffer.Potential risks to the SFR business, according to Moody’s, include a decline in home prices, the shrinking inventory of distressed single-family homes and yield constraints, and legislative efforts to boost home ownership or more highly regulate the rental market.
