How I’d invest £5k in cheap UK shares to make a million

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. Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 29th November, 2020 If I had £5k to invest in cheap UK shares today, I would focus on blue-chip stocks. While it may be possible to hit a significant savings target such as £1m faster using small-cap stocks, the risk of losing money could significantly increase. That’s why I tend to stick with blue-chips as these companies can earn an attractive return with reduced risk. 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 shares The sort of cheap shares I’d target are companies with strong balance sheets and competitive advantages that are suffering from short-term headwinds. My research shows there are plenty of businesses that fit into this bracket right now. One great example, I feel, is banking giant Natwest. Investors have been selling the stock this year due to concerns about its exposure to bad loans in the pandemic. However, the lender’s latest trading update showed that these losses are under control. As a result, capital is building up. Analysts believe the group may look to return a large chunk of this capital next year when regulators allow. Natwest could pay out as much as a third of its current market value in dividends if it’s allowed to. Another company I’d consider adding to a £5k portfolio of cheap UK shares is telecommunications giant BT. This group has some serious problems. Still, after recent declines, the stock is trading at around 50% of its long-term average valuation. To me, that looks too cheap, and while I’m worried about the organisation’s issues, I think the current low share price more than makes up for these problems. As the largest telecommunications business in the UK, the organisation has the financial firepower to drive its turnaround without risking insolvency.On this topic, I would also be interested in acquiring Vodafone for a portfolio of cheap UK shares. Unlike BT, this company has been able to maintain its dividend throughout the pandemic. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of around 6.5%, which looks extremely attractive in the current interest rate environment. Dividend income Talking of dividends, hedge fund operator Man is another blue-chip on my watch list. The goal of this asset management group is to make money in all market environments. It has been quite successful on this front. In the past, Man has produced large returns for its institutional investors. Owners of its publicly traded shares have also benefited. Cash returns have been stable in recent years, and right now, the stock offers a dividend yield of around 5.4%.Finally, I think one of the best UK shares to own right now is retailer Tesco. This is one of the most defensive stocks listed in London, as its trading performance over the past 12 months shows.As many other retailers have struggled to survive, Tesco’s profits have jumped. While the company remains the go-to retailer for many consumers, I reckon the firm’s sales and profits will continue to trend higher, and the stock will continue to yield positive returns for shareholders.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Learn, inspire, and laugh

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here  My wife Elissa and I were privileged to be invited by Congregation Agudat Achim to be their scholar-in-residence for the weekend. It was an added bonus to spend time with our very special friends, Perry & Francine Farb.Mordecai Kaplan, arguably the most influential Jewish thinker of the 20th century, observed that any meaningful religious experience should contain three elements: (1) education, (2) inspiration, and (3) entertainment. All three elements were certainly woven through the weekend in the Sanctuary, in the Social Hall, in the School, and just spending time within the Farb home and outside (it was cold!).In modern terms, we might translate Dr. Kaplan’s triad to be (1) learning, (2) uplift, and (3) laughter. It seems to me that we should weave these three elements through our lives on every level of life. To learn, we must be open-minded, and open to new ideas. To be uplifted, we need to stop ascribing motives and pointing fingers of blame. To laugh is to make sure we are not taking ourselves too seriously.A POLITICAL POSTSCRIPT: Our country might be quite a bit stronger if politicians— opened their minds— stopped worrying about who is to blame— learned the art of laughing at themselves, even as they laugh with others.Just saying…Let me add one further element that should be woven into every facet of our lives: Thanksgiving! Find ways to say “thank you” to those who share ideas with us, to those who accept us as we are, and to those who are willing to share laughter with us.

Dogs Trust breached Code of Fundraising Practice by calling TPS-registered individual

Charities working with third parties must do all they can to ensure that those third parties comply with the Code and secure the necessary permissions for any fundraising calls that will be carried out in the charity’s name.”Improvements since the complaintThe organisations involved have taken steps to ensure that they do not breach the Code of Fundraising Practice again.Following the complaint and investigation, Dogs Trust has indicated that it has stopped making fundraising calls to individual contacts secured through ‘lifestyle’ marketing surveys ,unless the individual had given consent in response to a question specifically naming the charity.NTT has achieved TPS Assured certification and regularly audits all the data contacts it receives from third parties.FRSB recommendationsThe FRSB has recommended that NTT goes further and that it reviews all current agreements and scripts in use by third party suppliers to ensure that consent obtained in this way is compliant with the Code.It has also recommended that all charities that use ‘lifestyle’ marketing surveys to obtain new marketing leads regularly review the content of survey scripts and consider spot-checking those telephone calls.The adjudication report is available from the FRSB.The FRSB will be replaced by the Fundraising Regulator in July 2016.  139 total views,  1 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

He had participated in two lifestyle marketing survey telephone calls in 2011 and 2015. During these he had agreed that he was willing to hear from ‘third parties’ by phone and email.Although he was given a list of specific organisations that his details would be passed to, he was not given any opportunity to opt out of contact from these organisations.The data had been supplied for the charity to use in its telephone fundraising campaign which was carried out by NTT Fundraising. Although both the agency and the charity believed that the second marketing survey telephone call had secured the individual’s permission for future calls, the FRSB ruled that any permission given was not sufficient to override TPS regulations. It judged that the complainant had not been asked to provide informed or specific consent to future fundraising calls from those organisations.Breaches of the CodeConsequently the self-regulatory body for the fundraising sector found that both NTT Fundraising and the data supplier had been in breach of the Institute of Fundraising’s Code of Fundraising Practice (clause 8.2.3(b) 2 ).This states that organisations: Advertisementlast_img read more

Despite victims, Bolivia’s Indigenous people resist coup

first_imgPublished Nov. 15 on pagina12.org.ar. Translation by John Catalinotto.This time peasants with red ponchos, women and men with hats, who came from afar, from above in the highlands. Then they joined all those who could get to the city of El Alto.  Others were held back as they tried to get to La Paz. This capital city has become the scene of daily mass mobilizations, town councils and repression. The river of people gathers — those who turned against the coup d’état.Thursday, Nov. 14, ended without tear gas or police motorcycles. The police and military maintained their usual encirclement of Plaza Murillo, the center of national political power. There, the seat of government, the legislative branch and the vice presidency are located, among other institutions.  The central events on that day took place on those blocks.On one hand, the Senate elected a new president — Eva Copa, a native of the city of El Alto.  So too is Sergio Choque, who had been elected president of the Chamber of Deputies the night before.  With the swearing in of both new presidents, the direction of legislative power was redefined. Both belong to the [pro-Morales party] Movement Toward Socialism (MAS), which holds two-thirds of the seats in the legislature.Simultaneously, Jeanine Añez, the self-proclaimed [coup] president, appointed five more ministers to her cabinet. Two of them, named Nov. 14, made statements alerting the public to the policies which will be followed by the government appointed outside the Constitution — in an attempt to build an institutional image.The first named was Minister of the Transitional Government Arturo Murillo, who announced he will undertake a “hunt” against three former officials of the overthrown government: Raúl García Linera, Juan Ramón Quintana and Hugo Moldiz, all for “seditious acts.” The second named was Communication Minister Roxana Lizarraga, who threatened “journalists or pseudo-journalists,” both national and international, who “commit sedition.”High commanders of the Bolivian Armed Forces and the Bolivian National Police were also elected to the transitory government. The few announcements made by this government have been a double threat within a general framework where there has been news of repression, deaths, serious injuries and confrontations with the military deployed in the streets and highways.Coup d’etat denies it’s a coup d’etatThe coup strategy faces an unsolvable contradiction. In effect, it is a coup d’état that denies being a coup d’état. Coup leaders seek to build an institutionality outside the law to sustain this false narrative.  But, in their self-proclamations and announcements of hunts for MAS leaders and journalists, they show the coup’s anti-democratic character.That has become clear for those who mobilize day after day and have as a main demand that Añez resign. They accuse her of being a coup-plotter and an [anti-Indigenous] racist. These reasons, together with the demand for Evo Morales’ return, have set in motion an uprising in different parts of the country and have created a movement of people toward La Paz.  (But not everyone in the mobilizations is raising the demand for Morales’ return.)It is expected that between Friday and Saturday [Nov. 15-16], marchers from rural areas in the interior of the country will arrive in the capital. The marchers include coca growers from the tropics, who on Thursday were protesting in the city of Cochabamba.The coup d’état thus faces an uncertain future. On the one hand, it has to face a growing process of national mobilization, which is increasingly marked by racial cleavage. Those who mobilize recognize that the self-appointed president, Añez, with Fernando Camacho and Carlos Mesa, are coup leaders opposed to the Indigenous nations.  They know about these politicians’ history and the attacks their forces made on the Whipala flag [symbol of the Andean Indigenous peoples].On the other hand, the coup leaders must resolve their announced promise that they will hold presidential elections within a period of no longer than 90 days. That resolution is part of the coup framework that has four central steps: the overthrow of Morales and his administration, the formation of a new transitional government, the call for elections and the holding of elections.Coup leaders face MAS-led legislaturesRight now what is taking place is forming the new government. This step faces a difficulty: It must name new officials to the Supreme Electoral Tribunal —  something that must proceed through the legislative bodies where the MAS has presidencies and majorities. Will the coup-makers seek an agreement with the political forces it overthrew? Or will they instead attack the legislative body, [providing] even more proof that it really is a coup? Will MAS accept an agreement with the objective of being allowed to participate in elections?The mobilizations are expected to increase in the next few days with the arrival of people who are coming from different departments in the country and the massive presence of demonstrators in El Alto, where Thursday night the people who died are being mourned by vigils. There is already talk of more than 10 deaths in the country and more than 200 arrests. This is a provisional and approximate figure in the context of laws broken and persecution of journalists who do not comply with the coup order. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
