There’s still time to build a surprisingly large nest egg from which to draw a passive income in retirement.With the FTSE 100 currently appearing to offer a number of stocks that trade on attractive valuations and which have improving financial prospects, now could be the right time to start building a retirement portfolio.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…Here are two prime examples of large-cap shares which could produce impressive total returns in the coming years.LandsecThe recent performance of commercial property business Landsec (LSE: LAND) has been relatively encouraging. Its share price has risen by over 20% in the past six months, while its half-year results highlighted the progress it is making in delivering on its strategy.For example, around a third of its £3bn development pipeline is now on site, while its pivot towards flexible office opportunities has certainly resonated with customers. This could provide it with improving financial performance at a time when demand for retail units has continued to be weak.Looking ahead, a difficult outlook for bricks-and-mortar retailers could weigh on the company’s financial performance. Evidence of this can be seen in its financial forecasts, with Landsec expected to produce a slight fall in its net profit over the next couple of years.However, even after its recent share price rise, the company still appears to offer good value for money. It trades on a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 0.7, which suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety. In addition, it has a dividend yield of 5%, which could mean that it has the capacity to deliver an impressive total return in the long run.easyJetAnother FTSE 100 share that could offer high returns in the long run is easyJet (LSE: EZJ). Its recent quarterly update showed that its costs were aided by its self-help initiatives, while robust customer demand enabled it to report resilient revenues.Looking ahead, the company could continue to deliver improving financial performance. Its investment in sustainability and in achieving cross-selling opportunities from the launch of its holidays business could strengthen its competitive position still further.With the company expected to post a rise in its bottom line of 19% in the current year, and 13% next year, its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13.9 suggests it offers a wide margin of safety. Although it may lack the financial consistency of some of its FTSE 100 peers, it nevertheless could have income investing potential as a result of its 3.5% dividend yield.As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the stock while it appears to offer a mix of income, growth and value appeal for the long term.

Forget making a million with Bitcoin! I’d invest £500 a month in UK shares to get rich

first_imgForget making a million with Bitcoin! I’d invest £500 a month in UK shares to get rich Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 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.

Bitcoin’s recent price rise may convince some investors it offers a better chance of making a million than UK shares. However, the long track record of growth from indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 suggests that stocks can produce impressive returns over the long run.In fact, by investing regularly in a basket of high-quality stocks after the recent market crash, you could build a £1m portfolio. Not only could it deliver higher returns than Bitcoin, it may offer less risk than the virtual currency.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…Return prospects of UK shares versus BitcoinAlthough Bitcoin may have outperformed UK shares over recent months, in the long run the stock market provides significant growth potential. For example, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have produced annualised high single-digit gains since their inceptions. And this trend looks set to continue in the coming years.In fact, investing in a diverse range of stocks could produce even higher returns than the market average due to the recent market crash. Many high-quality businesses are currently trading on exceptionally low valuations. In fact, significantly below their historic averages. With the stock market having always recovered from its lows, they could offer strong turnaround potential. Through buying them now while they’re priced at low levels, you could generate some impressive returns as they recover.The risks of Bitcoin versus stocksEven though Bitcoin may outperform UK shares in the short run, its lack of fundamentals means that investors have no way of knowing whether it offers good value for money. Therefore, its current price may already factor in its long-term growth prospects. This could mean that buying it today proves to be a relatively risky decision.By contrast, the financial figures for many companies suggest they offer wide margins of safety at the present time. Investors can access these figures freely and without charge online. This enables them to build a diverse portfolio that offers less risk than Bitcoin. And at a time when the outlook for the economy continues to be very uncertain.Making a millionAssuming that UK shares produce an 8% return a year, as per the FTSE 100’s annual returns since its inception 36 years ago, investing £500 per month could produce a portfolio valued at over £1m within 35 years. However, since many stocks appear to be undervalued at the present time, they could produce even higher returns in the coming years.Therefore, now could be the right time to buy a selection of them on a regular basis. They may have experienced a disappointing 2020 so far by comparison to other assets such as Bitcoin. But, when it comes to their risk/reward appeal, they appear to be significantly more attractive than the virtual currency. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Skills – Third Sector say that this equates to a fall of 70,000 (8.7% of the workforce) over the past 12 months. During the same period public sector employment fell by 4.3% and private sector employment rose by 1.5%.The data shows that there has been a drop in average salaries. The median gross hourly rate in the voluntary sector fell by nearly 3% to £10. For the same period, the data show increases in average pay in both the public and private sectors.The research was conducted by Skills -Third Sector together with the Third Sector Research Centre (TSRC) and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO).Sir Stuart Etherington, NCVO chief executive, said: “The steep drop in the sector workforce is deeply troubling, and provides robust evidence that spending cuts are hitting the voluntary sector disproportionately. With diminishing resources and fewer staff, voluntary organisations are facing a perfect storm and will struggle to meet the increased demand for their services that began with the recession of 2008.”The Institute of Fundraising responded to the figures by encouraging charities to invest in fundraising training to help save more jobs and to continue to diversify fundraising income streams. It also urged funders to invest in fundraising too.Peter Lewis, IoF Chief Executive, said: “At this time of cuts everyone understands that they can’t just continue funding the same projects forever. They can, however, help the sector to move to a more sustainable and diverse funding base through investing in fundraisers.”www.skills-thirdsector.org.uk Howard Lake | 9 January 2012 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Police investigating Arlene Arkinson murder seek ” two mystery women”

first_img Detectives from Serious Crime Branch investigating the murder of Tyrone teenager Arlene Arkinson today made a specific appeal about two mystery women on the 20th anniversary of Arlene’s murder.15-year-old Arlene was last seen in the early hours of 14 August 1994. She disappeared after a night out in Bundoran. In 2005 a 61 year old man stood trial for Arlene’s murder but was acquitted.In 2012, a derelict flat at Main Street in Castlederg was searched after new information became available to investigators.The officer now leading the investigation, Detective Superintendent Karen Baxter, today disclosed that specimens of blood belonging to two women were found during the 2012 search.D/Superintendent Baxter said: “These blood specimens belong to two different women. Tests have confirmed they are not from Arlene. But neither specimen has registered on the national DNA database.“On the 20th anniversary of Arlene’s disappearance, I would ask that any woman who was in this flat, at 49a Main Street which has since been demolished, at any time to make contact with police. They have a story to tell and we want to hear it. Their assistance could be beneficial to the investigation.”Officers will be conducting a number of land searches in various parts of Tyrone and other locations over the coming months. In line with previous searches over the past number of years, this activity is designed to advance the ongoing police objectives of recovering Arlene’s remains and to progress the investigation.The searches will be carried out by a small team assisted by dog handlers and body recovery dogs. Like previous searches, these will be conducted on a planned roll-out, depending on weather conditions, availability of resources and operational commitments.D/Superintendent Baxter said: “This investigation will continue. It will be progressed as far as we can take it. Indeed, I can confirm that our enquiries have involved detectives interviewing a man in England.“While we acknowledge the pain this causes to Arlene’s family, police alone cannot solve this case or find Arlene. It is only with the help of the public that the person responsible will be brought to justice and the Arkinson family will find any degree of comfort.“Arlene’s family is being kept informed of these developments. We understand as much as we can their continuing grief and frustration. We will continue to do our utmost to bring this to a conclusion within an extremely complex investigative environment and diminishing opportunities. We would ask anyone with information to come forward.”The special incident room number to call is 028 7137 9783.

The longitudinal dependence of whistler and chorus characteristics observed on the ground nearL= 4

first_imgWhistler activity at L ≃ 4 is known to be a function of longitude, peaking in the Weddell Sea sector of Antarctica; a combination of source and propagation factors, the latter possibly partly associated with the South Atlantic geomagnetic anomaly, is believed to be responsible. There is evidence, for example from satellite surveys, that chorus and hiss activity may also be longitude dependent. To investigate this further, we have compared VLF data from four L ≃ 4 Antarctic stations from a 2‐day period in June 1982. Siple, Halley, and Sanae form a closely spaced (∼20°–0° geomagnetic longitude) triplet, while Kerguelen is ∼120° (geomagnetic) to the east, on the opposite side of the anomaly. To a large extent there was a repeatable diurnal variation in activity at all stations on the two days. Events observed at Siple tended to be similar to those observed ∼9 hours earlier (the same MLT) at Kerguelen on the same day. There was a very marked drop‐off in both whistler and VLF emission activity between Siple and Halley on the one hand and Sanae on the other. The reason for this is not clear; it may be either a source effect such as the lower occurrence of lightning over eastern North America compared to the adjacent Atlantic Ocean, or else a wave‐particle interaction effect whereby the conditions for wave growth or amplification are more favorable, or substorm particle injections penetrate the magnetosphere more deeply, at the longitude of Siple than further east. Comparison of the spectral forms of whistler mode activity at neighboring stations suggests that wave generation occurs simultaneously over relatively wide longitude (or local time) sectors (≳30° or 2 hours). Individual interaction regions are smaller than this, ≲5° in longitude, comparable with the previously inferred sizes of whistler ducts. Data sets with longer time coverage and better spatial resolution are required to answer some of the problems raised by this limited study.last_img read more
