Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. If you want to buy individual stocks to improve your retirement prospects, we have some ideas. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

However, over the long run, the index has proven to be an essential tool for creating wealth. So, while the UK’s leading blue-chip index might suffer further declines in the short run, investors who have a long-term time horizon may benefit from the index’s relatively high returns. It could even help you retire early from a standing start at 50 years of age. 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…Retire on the FTSE 100The FTSE 100 has been around since the mid-1980s. During this time, the world has been through many economic booms and busts. On some occasions, the index has lost nearly 50% of its value as investor sentiment has collapsed. However, despite these peaks and troughs, the blue-chip index has achieved an average annual return of 8% since its inception. That’s significantly higher than the interest rates offered on most savings accounts today. As such, setting up a monthly investment plan in the FTSE 100 could help you build a sizeable financial nest egg and retire early.Monthly investingMost online stockbrokers offer a monthly investment plan today, some from as little as £25 a month. These regular investment plans allow you to pick one, or a selection of investment funds to buy every month via direct debit. Once the funds are selected, all you need to do is sit back and relax. It is as easy as that. A simple FTSE 100 tracker fund could allow you to track the index with no extra effort. This may be the best way to invest in the FTSE 100 and build a retirement fund. Buying the index as a whole removes the risk of making a bad investment and provides a high level of diversification. What’s more, the fund tracks the index for you. The fund’s managers buy or sell companies if they are added to or removed from the index. Retire early Using the FTSE 100, it could be straightforward to build a large pension pot in a short time frame. For example, an investment of £5k a month for 10 years may grow to be worth nearly £1m. That could be enough to provide an annual income of £50k in retirement. There are other options available to grow your nest egg faster. Some FTSE 100 stocks have produced double-digit returns over the past few years.At an annual growth rate of 10% per annum, it would take monthly deposits of £4,500 to build a £1m pension pot. Buying high-quality companies with strong balance sheets, at low valuations may be the best way to profit using this strategy. So, while buying the FTSE 100 right now might seem like a risky prospect, investors should focus on its long-term potential. Over time, owning the index could transform your retirement prospects and help you to retire with a larger pension pot.  Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 20th June, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

I’m avoiding the Lloyds share price. I prefer this 5% dividend yield stock instead!

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images. Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. I’m avoiding the Lloyds share price. I prefer this 5% dividend yield stock instead! FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Lloyds Banking Group (LSE:LLOY) has had a year to forget. Lloyds shares are on my avoid list for the foreseeable future right now. Instead, I am looking at other options that could make me a passive income. Can the Lloyds share price recover?LLOY’s performance on the FTSE 100 over the past 12 months has been poor. Across the 100 incumbents, the Lloyds share price is close to the bottom based on performance over the past 12 months. LLOY has lost over 30% of its share price value in the past 12 months. Since the first day of trading in January, it has lost over 35%. Shares plummeted to a low of 23p per share back in September.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 I write this, the Lloyds share price is up nearly 9% in February alone. This bounce could be attributed to the Covid-19 vaccine rollout. There is an argument for LLOY to be a great contrarian investment. After all, LLOY still boasts over 30m customers, which means people still trust them with their money. In addition to that, it possesses a fairly decent balance sheet which should see it through current murky waters. If and when an economic recovery does occur, LLOY is in a position to benefit. But given the economic uncertainty we’re facing, I do not see the Lloyds share price as a contrarian investment and will avoid it for now.Passive income opportunityI often look for dividend stocks with a healthy yield that can make me a passive income. A stock I really like right now is PRS REIT (LSE:PRSR). A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a company that owns, and in most cases operates, income-producing real estate. PRSR is “the UK’s first quoted real estate investment trust to focus on high-quality, new build family homes for the private rental market”.Unlike the Lloyds share price, the PRSR share price represents an opportunity to me right now. It is currently at a yearly high of 88p per share. Since a market crash low of 60p per share, it has recovered over 45% of its share price value. PRSR can capitalise on the demand of rental properties currently outweighing supply, which is driving tenant costs higher. Zoopla recently reported rents increased over 2% in the last three months of 2020.City analysts predict a further annual dividend growth at PRSR meaning it carries a juicy dividend yield of over 5% to the fiscal year ends of June 2021 and 2022. This could be a great addition to my investment portfolio for its passive income.Risk and rewardI have invested in buy-to-let in the past which has cost me a lot of money up front and additional running costs too. I have learnt from that and now prefer investing in stock such as PRSR. There are risks involved of course. If the economy begins to recover, more people will look to move away from renting and buy their own homes. In addition to that, the return of lower deposit mortgages could have a negative effect too.Right now, I believe PRSR offers a juicy yield and is a tempting stock to invest in. I would avoid the Lloyds share price and monitor events. Here is another dividend stock I really like to make me a passive income.

Our supporters expect the team to play winning rugby, as we all do.  The challenge is clearly laid down for John and we look forward to seeing positive results.  While there’s no denying John has a stellar playing record in New Zealand, our interest was in finding the right coach for the Blues – someone who could coach this team to success and we’ve selected John to do that.”Kirwan’s coaching resume includes Head Coach of the UK Barbarians (2012), Head Coach of Japan (2007-2011), and Head Coach of Italy (2002-2005).

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS As a player, he represented the All Blacks from 1984-1994 (named All Black of the Year following the Rugby World Cup win in 1987).  Kirwan represented Auckland from 1983-1994.Kirwan was appointed on the unanimous recommendation of a joint NZRU and Blues panel, which is the standard process for all Super Rugby Coach appointments.last_img read more

Explain why you made decisions and how changes were implemented. Don’t leave it to the judges to piece the story together themselves.Be specific about change. Charities should be clear on the exact change or impact that has been achieved. Don’t use vague phrases in your entry like ‘great benefits’ or ‘more diverse’. Instead, spell out exactly what happened and why it is significant.Back up your statements with evidence. Use both figures and anecdotes to support your claims, demonstrating the difference between where you started and where you ended up.Be clear on the Board’s part in the process. Explain what roles the trustees adopted or actions they took to contribute to your success – if relevant, include how this evolved over time. You may want to ensure your entry is written by someone who understands the role the Board played in the charity’s achievements and how this contributed to the change or success you’re reporting.Don’t shy away from failure; explain how you handled challenges – failure is an opportunity for learning and improving.The Charity Governance Awards are sponsored and hosted by The Clothworkers’ Company in partnership with consultancy NPC (New Philanthropy Capital), recruitment specialists Prospectus, and volunteer matching charity Reach Volunteering.

Subprime loans drive auto recovery

first_imgThe scramble for profits is again leading to overproduction and the pushing of high-interest loans, this time in the auto industry. The capitalists are worried but keep doing it.For the bosses the recovery in auto sales is the one relatively bright spot in the capitalist economy. But that “bright spot” is about to get dimmer. While the recovery was kick-started by closing down auto plants, slashing wages in half and automating, it is now being driven more and more by subprime auto loans.Inventories are building up. Loan companies, hedge funds and bankers are selling subprime-backed loans the way they did in the run-up to the economic crisis of 2000-2008.And the working class, particularly in auto and related industries — not just in the U.S. but in Mexico, Canada and elsewhere — should take note of this and prepare for future attempts to remove shifts and shut down aspects of production.Business Week warned as early as last fall that “as the fifth anniversary of the Federal Reserve’s policy of keeping interest rates near zero approaches, the market for subprime borrowing is again becoming frothy, this time in the car business instead of housing.” (Nov. 27, 2013)As auto sales rose, subprime loans accounted for more than 27 percent of new vehicle loans in the first half of last year. The magazine noted that this was “the highest proportion since Experian Automotive began tracking the data in 2007.” The subprime loans are being packaged into bonds and sold on the market to profit-hungry investors.By the third quarter of 2013, subprime-backed bond sales had soared to $17.5 billion, more than double the amount sold in the same period in 2010 and only $3 billion below the peak in 2005 of $20 billion. “Perhaps more than any other factor, easing credit has been the key to the U.S. auto recovery,” Adam Jonas of Morgan Stanley wrote to investors in an October note.Equifax Inc. reported 6.6 million subprime auto borrowers as of last April, and the number is rising. At the same time, court records showed a rising number of defaults and personal bankruptcy filings. (Reuters, April 3, 2013)The capitalists know that most workers need cars to get to work, go shopping and visit friends and relatives. So the financiers can charge from 10 to 20 percent usurious interest. The industry already expects 25 percent defaults and repossessions.Race for market share — and overproductionSome 3.45 million unsold autos sat in car and truck dealerships by the end of 2013.  Each of these vehicles is counted as a sale by the auto companies. And the dealers are under pressure to meet quotas set by the auto barons.Subprime loans are fueling overproduction in the race by the car companies for market share. “U.S. dealers have about $100 billion worth of unsold cars and trucks sitting on their lots,” according to Mike Jackson, CEO of AutoNation, which owns the largest chain of car dealers in the U.S. (Automotive News, Feb. 4)Jackson was cautiously sounding the alarm about overproduction. He said inventory levels at car lots were at 90 to 120 days of supply. The healthy norm, according to the industry, is about 60 days.  Each of the Big Three Detroit automakers has well over 100 days’ supply.“Everybody has very rich targets. If you add up everybody’s targets, we should be selling over 18 million vehicles, but that’s not the case,” said Joe Langley, production analyst for IHS Automotive. The industry sold 15.6 million vehicles in 2013 and is counting on an upturn in the economy to push sales higher.“The problem is the rules of past recoveries — where employment and income come roaring back along with auto sales — do not apply in this slow-growth economy,” said one Michigan auto consultant. “It’s a new world. We’re in the unprecedented position of being five years after a recovery and still a million jobs below where we were at the last peak. And you need a job to buy a car.” (AN, Feb. 4)They may be on the brink of widespread overproduction but, in the irresistible struggle for markets, each capitalist in the industry is planning for expansion.  At the auto show in Detroit in January, Volkswagen, Honda, Mazda and Nissan announced plans to expand production in North America. Toyota, Ford and GM announced plans for expanding production within existing capacity.Finance capital revisiting the Great RecessionSo the automakers are pushing more and more vehicles onto the car dealer lots. Overproduction appears as inventories build up. Pressure to sell becomes unbearable. The dealers seek out subprime loan outfits to boost their sales. The banks and hedge funds seek out the subprime dealers to sell bonds and make a killing — until the whole thing collapses.Businesses then close or cut back and workers get thrown onto the street, lose their homes, their cars, their savings and their possessions, forced to join the already massive army of the unemployed.Look behind subprime dealers like Exeter and others and you will find funding from Wells Fargo, Capital One, GM Capital, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, Blackstone, Ally Financial and a host of other financial parasites who were behind the subprime mortgage crisis that precipitated the economic plunge of 2007-2008.The bosses and bankers do what capital must do. They seek the highest rate of profit.Under present conditions of automation, robots, job-destroying software, low wages and mass unemployment, the fastest and surest way to make the highest rate of profit is through preying on the workers — feeding them cheap loans that are bound to end in default and crisis, all in an illusory pursuit to overcome the pressure of overproduction.But they are also driven to create a dispossessed class of workers and oppressed people who are bound to rebel, en masse, against this reckless and intolerable system of capitalist exploitation.Fred Goldstein is the author of “Low-Wage Capitalism” and “Capitalism at a Dead End,” which has been translated into Spanish as “El capitalismo en un callejón sin salida.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Food is a Big Part of July 4 Celebrations, Los Angeles County Public Health Offers Safety Tips to Avoid Sickness

Foodborne illness is associated with three main problems: improper handling of food with contaminated hands; failure to cook foods such as meat and chicken thoroughly; and failure to keep foods at the appropriate temperature.“Independence Day is associated with food, friends, family, and fireworks,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. “It’s also a time to keep loved ones safe from foodborne illness at barbecues, picnics and holiday festivities by practicing safe food handling and storage.”Food Safety Tips:• Wash hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling food and after using the restroom.• Wash fresh fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating or cutting into them.• Separate raw meats and poultry from other foods such as fruits and vegetables and always use separate cutting boards, knives, and platters for these foods to avoid cross contamination.• Wash cutting boards, utensils, and platters after preparing each food item and before going on to the next item and avoid using the same plate or utensils for raw and cooked meats.• Use a food thermometer to make sure meat and poultry are cooked thoroughly to their safe minimum internal temperatures: Burgers and sausage to 160°F; chicken and turkey to 165°F; and steaks to 145°F.• Keep cold foods cold (40°F or below) and keep hot foods hot (135°F or above). Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.• Avoid “taste testing” food or drinks to see if they have spoiled.Symptoms of foodborne illness include stomach pain, vomiting, and diarrhea, and can start hours or days after consuming contaminated food or drink. Symptoms usually go away after a few hours or days without treatment, although foodborne illness can be severe and even life-threatening in older adults, infants and young children, pregnant women, and those with conditions that weaken their immune systems.For more information on food safety tips, visit www.foodsafety.gov.
