The FTSE 100 slumps! Here’s what I’ve been buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA

first_img Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 15th March, 2020 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. Image source: Getty Images The FTSE 100 has suffered one of its most aggressive sell-offs since the financial crisis over the past two weeks. These declines have thrown up some fantastic bargains for long-term investors. Particularly, income-seeking investors.Indeed, more than one-third of FTSE 100 constituents now support dividend yields of 5%. While some companies might not be able to sustain these distributions, others look entirely secure. As such, now could be the time for dividend investors to start snapping up some of these bargains.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…FTSE 100 incomeThe problem is, it’s not very easy to distinguish which companies will be able to maintain their dividends and which ones won’t. With this being the case, an equity income fund, or FTSE 100 tracker, could be a better option for investors than buying stocks directly.The great thing about an equity income fund is that it spreads the risk. Owning individual dividend stocks exposes investors to the risk of a dividend cut. If a company cuts its dividend without notice, the capital losses can exceed many years of income.By spreading the risk, investors don’t have to worry about the prospect of a dividend cut. Buying n FTSE 100 tracker fund is an excellent way to create an income portfolio at the click of a button. The index currently supports a dividend yield of 4.7%. That’s an average yield of all the companies in the index. The one downside of owning the FTSE 100 index as an income investment is the fact that it has quite a lot of exposure to banks and commodity companies. The exposure to these two cyclical sectors makes the index quite volatile.Equity Income Index FundVanguard’s FTSE UK Equity Income Index Fund could be a better option. This fund aims to track the performance of the FTSE UK Equity Income Index.It also has a fair bit of exposure to banks and miners, but around 10% of the fund is invested in pharmaceutical businesses, and there’s also a substantial weighting towards consumer goods companies, as well as utilities.The fund owns 124 firms. It charges just 0.14% per annum in management fees and currently supports a dividend yield of 5.4%. So this could be a great way to boost your portfolio’s income stream at the click of a button.In the current market environment, a diversified income fund such as the Vanguard equity income offering provides a layer of insulation against broader market turmoil as well.Another benefit of using an FTSE 100 or income tracker fund rather than an active investment manager is that these funds only track indexes. The fund’s managers are not allowed to go off any buy other companies outside of the index.As a result, there’s little-to-no risk of a Neil Woodford-style disaster where the manager moves outside of their mandate.The bottom lineSo, overall, if you’re looking for somewhere to invest your money in the current climate, and don’t know where to start, the Vanguard FTSE UK Equity Income Index Fund offers a market-beating dividend stream from a diversified basket of stocks at a low cost. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Rupert Hargreaves owns the FTSE UK Equity Income Index Fund.

4 simple steps to increase your chances of making a million from a market crash

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Making a million pounds is the dream of so many of us. However, few of us realise we have the potential to make that dream come true through stock market investing.The stock market is not the sole preserve of the wealthy and it is open for anyone to access.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…In fact, many millionaires have emerged from depressed financial times. Some of the world’s most successful investors follow the value investing strategy. This involves buying quality companies for a cheap share price, holding them for several years and enjoying wealth generation through the compounding effect of reinvesting dividends.John Maynard Keynes and J Paul Getty, two rich and successful investors, followed this strategy. Perhaps best known of all is Warren Buffett, who has spent close to 70 years investing in this way and has personal wealth close to $70bn.  Making a millionGetting on the path to riches is easier than it may seem. Provided you follow a few simple rules and have confidence in your conviction. The stock market can pave the way to a wealthy future.Commit to regular investmentRegularly investing increases your bottom line. Implementing a regular direct debit for your Stocks and Shares ISA is a simple way to set it and forget it. A consistent amount invested can help even out the highs and lows of investing. During a period of volatility, when stock markets are at low point, your regular investment can buy more shares for your money, this can boost your long-term returns when the markets recover.Choose companies with a reliable dividendDividends are fast falling by the wayside at the moment, but a regular income from a dividend can work wonders in securing a million-pound payday. By reinvesting your dividend payments, you compound the interest on your shareholding. This increases your wealth at a much faster rate than simply buying new shares as and when you can afford it.Choose companies that can go the distanceInvest your money in companies that have a good reputation, many years of experience and proven management with the company’s best interests at heart. When you opt for a well-established company with a sound track record, you reduce your risk.Diversify your portfolioDon’t put all your eggs in one basket because you expose yourself to unnecessary risk. If you only buy oil stocks and there is a downturn in the oil industry, then your portfolio will drop across the board. There are many sectors to choose from, so you should endeavour to own equities in a selection of them. Defence, pharmaceuticals, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and insurance are some examples.Have a plan, stick to it and be confident in the decisions you make. Over the long term, stocks and shares can put your money to work much more efficiently than traditional savings accounts.  Enter Your Email Address 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.

Then in 1972, Gail and I were invited by Bishop Spofford and the Diocese of Eastern Oregon to be their program coordinator.

I was attending junior high camp and Father Spofford, a parish priest (from Weiser, I seem to remember), was there. I remember her was game enough to allow us to throw him off the dock into Payette Lake. Our nightly campfires were wonderful led by him. He made us think about many things about the scriptures. He was loved by all the campers; everyone tried to sit at his table at meals.Next I knew him as Dean of St. Michael’s in Boise, my home church. He chanted (sang!) the service beautifully. He had a marvelous voice. He had an important singing role in the production of “Oklahoma” at Boise High. I wrote to him a few times while away at college and after he returned from Jerusalem he sent me his little book of thoughts. It is something I treasure and keep on my night stand.He and my dad, Dave, were friends. I’m sure they’re having deep discussions in heaven.RIP Bishop Spofford. You will be missed here. Norma Stevlingson says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Job Listing November 12, 2013 at 2:48 pm In 1977 I got to spend the summer with Bill Spofford in Eastern Oregon while I was a seminarian. He had a profound influence on me. Bill, two high school students, and I traveled through the south eastern corner of the Diocese. We did various projects in each of four towns, Lakeview, Burns, John Day and Baker. As we moved between the towns, the distances are great in Eastern Oregon, Bishop Spofford would often stop at isolated ranches. Those visits from Bill were the only Church some people got. I particularly remember Evening Prayer at a large cattle ranch miles from the nearest paved road. Bill didn’t just visit Episcopalians. More than once on that trip Bill stopped to visit and support a clergyperson of another denomination. One minister told me he never saw his own denominational officials but Bill Spofford was there for him. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC November 6, 2013 at 6:49 pm Bill Spofford was one of the great bishops of our church. Even though his service, as Dean of St. Michael’s Cathedral, was nearly forty five years ago, he’s still remembered and quoted often, but our senior members. He was known for his booming voice, and his prophetic ministry. As Dean of St. Michael’s he’s remembered for talking about issues publicly well before they were being discussed in the wider church. Bill, as priest, dean and bishop, served our Church with distinction. While Bill’s rest will surely be in eternity, it may not be completely in peace. As one of those ‘hounds of heaven’ I have no doubt that Bill will continue to be the ‘leaven in the lump’ in heaven as he certainly was on this earth! Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Leslie K.

I was a “pearl diver” (dishwasher) for that best summer of my life. Bill and Polly, the boys, and the dog were visiting from Massachusetts and rumors were flying that Bill was going to be appointed Dean of St. Michael’s Cathedral in Boise. And, indeed, that came to pass several months later. After he arrived, my best friend and I began attending St. Michael’s, continuing through high school and during summers while I was in college. He will be so missed. Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ [Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. William B. Spofford, the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Eastern Oregon, died Nov. 5 at age 92.Spofford, who retired from Eastern Oregon in 1979, was living in Portland, Oregon, and died in his apartment there, just after receiving the Ministration at the Time of Death.An obituary from Eastern Oregon called Spofford a “prophet, priest, poet and pastor.”A Brooklyn, New York, native, Spofford was ordained deacon on St. Andrew’s Day 1944 and priest in 1945. He served churches in Massachusetts, Michigan and Idaho, and was chaplain to the Massachusetts General Hospital and clinical training fellow at the Kansas State Hospital and Boys Industrial School, Topeka, Kansas.He was dean of St. Michael’s Cathedral in Boise, Idaho, when the House of Bishops elected him in the fall of 1968 to serve as bishop to what was then the Missionary District of Eastern Oregon. He was one of the last people selected by that body before the term was dropped and those jurisdictions were permitted to elect their own bishops.Spofford was ordained and consecrated on the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul (Jan. 25) 1969 during a snowstorm in Ontario.Spofford was one of two men who made history in 1967 when serving as elected delegates to what was then called the Triennial Meeting of the Women of the Church. The other was the Rev. Powell Woodward of Central New York. During the 1967 General Convention, Spofford also was elected to serve on the church’s Executive Council.In Eastern Oregon, where he often arrived for visitations and meetings on his motorcycle, he worked for new models of broader ministry, ecumenical relationships, a functional diaconate and a new vision of stewardship.After he left the Eastern Oregon diocese, Spofford served as assistant bishop of the Diocese of Washington and bishop-chaplain at St. George’s College in Jerusalem. He was a member of the ACLU, the League of Women Voters and the Oregon United Nations Association.Spofford is survived by his five sons: Timothy; triplets, Mark, Andrew and Stephen; and Daniel.The first memorial service will be held Dec. 21 at 11 a.m. at Trinity Cathedral, Portland, and the second memorial service will be on Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. at Ascension Camp and School, in Cove, Diocese of Eastern Oregon.

To spend such time with this wise, compassionate, down-to-earth bishop, thoroughly grounded in the Gospel and in what it means to love God by loving God’s people, was a great gift and one of the defining experiences of my priestly formation.

I was ordained a deacon in Burns, OR in 1969 and priest in Ontario, OR in 1970. Bishop Spofford was, for me, a powerful mentor and friend. He was an energetic presence and simply overflowed with ideas. He was a disciple of Rowland Allen, the English priest who was the creative spirit behind Total Ministry, a program which is increasingly relevant in the Episcopal Church. Bishop Spofford would often arrive, on his motorcycle, a bit rumpled. I remember that the clergy of the diocese brought him a voluminous chasuble, a style just then coming into popularity, which he could use to cover up his “motorcycle” clothes. He was also well known for camping out in a tent for his first meeting of the House of Bishops, objecting to the cost of the facility in which they were meeting! A great man and a true Christian.

6 best ways for college grads to adjust to adult life

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply From one recent college grad to the next — most students think that after graduating high school their college transition would be smooth. But, as it turns out, for most young adults it’s extremely hard. After all, the assignments get more difficult and it is the first time in most people’s life where they don’t have to ask their parents for permission—which means wide-open freedom.That is a lot of freedom for any young person. Now, take the responsibility of being a college student and multiply it by ten. That is how much responsibility it takes to be a functioning adult in society. It can be very overwhelming for new adults and recent college graduates. Luckily for them, a list of great tips to help transitioning into adulthood can be found below.Get more sleepEveryone knows how college life is: do your work as soon as classes are done, so that way you can go to parties and party all night. Unfortunately, that is not how the real world works. Your college classes most likely started in the afternoon so you could sleep in, but your new job begins in the morning, so you have to wake up early. You must get better sleep so you can be well prepared for your career in the morning and attack the rest of your day.SchedulingIn school, many students were able to squeak by just showing up to class on time. Other than that, their schedule was wide open so they didn’t have to schedule or budget their time at all. They could roll up wherever they wanted, whenever they wanted.Unfortunately, being able to budget your time is a crucial skill that most young adults don’t understand until later in life. Having that skill as soon as you get out of school could be extremely useful to the new contributing members of society.Behaving like an adultOften in school, especially around other peers, it could be perceived to be the “cool” thing to behave immaturely. If you break something or do something foolish in college, your peers will often encourage you. If you do something like this in the “real” world though, you will be looked down upon, and you will often lose your job.Employers don’t like it when their employees act immaturely, even outside of the workplace. This is because it is a reflection of their judgment as a boss, and it reflects negatively on the company itself. It is difficult for a lot of fresh graduates to learn how to adapt to behaving with maturity.Finding a careerA common misconception for newly graduated students is the difference between a job and a career. A job is something that you have to motivate yourself to get out of the house to go to. It is possible to have a full-time job and still hate it. This is what happens to many new college grads. They dive headfirst into the first job they are offered, and they don’t know their true calling.A career, on the other hand, is something that you enjoy going to day after day, and you could be content doing it for the rest of your life. A career is what college students should be striving for, and it may even take a couple of tries to find the perfect job.Social events and pattern changesThe sooner that new college grads understand that their social patterns will be much different after graduation, the more comfortable life will be. Most college students end up trying to incorporate their old ways into their new life. This can be extremely hard.Having social patterns change is different from eliminating them. The main thing that is going to change when it comes to social patterns is how late the social events last, and the number of people that show up. Adult gatherings are usually a couple of people, and they typically end around ten o’clock, at the latest. This isn’t always the case, but sometimes having a small get together is more relaxing than having huge parties.Your degrees aren’t everythingWhen it comes down to it, the career you are applying for will take the best candidate applying, regardless of what degree they have or where they went to school. Get it out of your head if you have a degree from Dartmouth that you will automatically get any job you apply for. That is just not how it works.Get into the habit of developing good work habits and a good work ethic. The candidate that works hard, is genuinely personable and easy to relate to is often the one that’s going to get the job. Also, don’t be disappointed if you don’t get any calls back. That is just how the job search process works. And know, if you don’t get the job, you probably weren’t what they were looking for, which means that wasn’t a good fit for you. Keep looking.Bottom line, college students should be told more thoroughly what adulthood is like. Most of them come out of school bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready for the world… but they have no idea what to do. They don’t know the first thing about finding a career, a place to live, paying bills, etc.Recent grads need the help of those already in the work force today to help train them to become better citizens. And, they need to be taught, in school, how to do basic things so that they don’t get in trouble with the government or anyone else for that matter. College grads need your help to figure out life. After all, they’re still in the process of becoming adults. The more help they can get, the better. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Henry Tuilagi crushes lock Jamie Cudmore in Top 14 final

first_imgThursday Jun 3, 2010 Henry Tuilagi crushes lock Jamie Cudmore in Top 14 final While Clermont are no doubt still celebrating from their big win, there was one moment in the Top 14 final against Perpignan that wasn’t great for them, but was a heavyweight clash of note that’s well worth taking a look at. As the weekend nears, it’s been another one of those hectic weeks but I’ve managed to cover most of the big games here on RD. By visiting the site you’ve been able to see highlights of the Super 14 final , the Guinness Premiership final , the Edinburgh Sevens final, the Magners League final , England against the Barbarians , and of course the Top 14 final . This coming week will no doubt be similar, as the International season kicks off again with Test matches taking place all around the world. Visit again next week to see updates from those. This requested clip though is a short snippet from the Top 14 final, as Clermont’s Canadian hardman Jamie Cudmore gets chopped down to size by the monstrous force of none other than Henry Tuilagi. It’s not the first time Tuilagi has made his sizable presence felt, so check out the related posts to see more of his massive tackles, and take a look at Try Savers & Rib Breakers 11 to see if you can spot the clip where he easily drove Sebastien Chabal back recently. Tomorrow on RD we’ve got something rather different that should bring a smile to your face if all goes to plan. Until then though, keep checking the archives, share links with your friends, and keep coming back for daily updates as we add to this incredible archive of rugby clips online. Time: 01:17 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
