Don’t ‘save’ for retirement! I’d buy dirt-cheap UK shares today and hold them forever

Don’t ‘save’ for retirement! I’d buy dirt-cheap UK shares today and hold them forever

first_imgDon’t ‘save’ for retirement! I’d buy dirt-cheap UK shares today and hold them forever Peter Stephens | Thursday, 17th December, 2020 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. The stock market crash means there are a number of dirt-cheap UK shares available to buy today. While they may face uncertain operating conditions in the short run, over the long term, they’ve the potential to produce a surprisingly large retirement nest egg as the world economy recovers.By contrast, low interest rates mean that saving money for retirement could lead to a loss of spending power. As such, now may be the right time to buy and hold FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks for the long run.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…The past performance of UK shares versus savingsThe recent performance of UK shares has generally been disappointing. In many cases, they’re down versus their 2020 starting prices. Cash savings, meanwhile, are likely to have grown in value this year, albeit at a slow pace due to low interest rates.However, over a long a long time period, a portfolio of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares is likely to have outperformed savings accounts. For example, the two indexes have delivered high single-digit annual returns over the past 20 years.Compared to the sub-1% interest rates currently on offer among the vast majority of savings accounts, this means the stock market can have a far more positive impact on an investor’s retirement plans versus cash savings.The future prospects for a stock market rallyLooking ahead, the difference in returns between UK shares and cash savings could widen even further over time. Interest rates are likely to remain at low levels for many months, or even years. The Bank of England is even considering negative interest rates to stimulate an economic recovery after the coronavirus pandemic is over.As such, the interest received on cash savings may even be less than inflation. This could reduce an investor’s spending power as retirement nears.Meanwhile, the existence of dirt-cheap UK shares means many stocks could deliver higher returns than the stock market average. They may currently have valuations that don’t reflect their financial position or future earnings prospects.Moreover, valuations across the stock market have historically reverted to their long-term averages. This suggests that, as a stock market recovery takes place, today’s cheapest stocks could be the biggest beneficiaries of improving investor sentiment.Reducing risks from buying sharesOf course, UK shares are riskier than holding cash. This year included a bear market that’s likely to recur at some point in future. However, by diversifying across a wide range of shares and holding for the long run, it’s possible to reduce risk.This could also increase returns as an investor has a broader exposure to a range of growth areas. It could also catalyse their retirement prospects as a likely stock market rally takes place over the coming years.

‘Toughest player on the field’ reacts to being dropped by sneaky punch

‘Toughest player on the field’ reacts to being dropped by sneaky punch

first_imgWednesday Mar 14, 2018 ‘Toughest player on the field’ reacts to being dropped by sneaky punch Brumbies halfback Matt Lucas was warned following round 4 of Super Rugby, after his sucker punch in the midriff of Rebels number eight Amanaki Mafi. The incident sparked a scuffle, after Mafi did his best to get Lucas in trouble.The off-the-ball shot dropped the Rebels and Japan star, who has been a major part of their success so far in this year’s campaign. He fell to the floor in pain, then laid it on thick in what appeared to be quite a performance. “He’s hoping that they check the big screen and wonder how he got hurt. I don’t like that.” commented Greg Martin. When there was no reaction from the referee, Lucas got in his ear, further angering Mafi, who hopped up and gave him a shove. That led to a bit of a melee, with one of the giant Arnold brothers quickly getting involved and Lucas somehow sneaking off unscathed. While Lucas instigated it, and the quick punch may well have hurt, Mafi’s alleged ‘gamesmanship’ on the floor was not great to see. It was the scrumhalf that has been officially warned though, after he contravened Law 9.12. A player must not strike with the hand.A Warning is issued when foul play incidents are very close to, but do not meet the Red Card threshold for citing. Therefore, it was deemed that a Warning in this case was sufficient. Aside from the theatrics, the Rebels went on to win the game 33-10, scoring five tries to two to notch up their third maximum points haul in succession. 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.

Former England flanker Clifford forced to retire at just 27-years-old

Former England flanker Clifford forced to retire at just 27-years-old

first_imgWednesday Aug 19, 2020 Former England flanker Clifford forced to retire at just 27-years-old After battling through two major shoulder surgeries following a dislocation when playing for Harlequins in his 100th match, Jack Clifford has today confirmed that he has been forced to retire due to the injury.ADVERTISEMENTThe 27-year-old former England flanker brings to an end a career that saw the impressive youngster lead the England U20 side to a Junior Rugby Championship title in 2013, going on to earn ten senior England caps and playing in two of the national side’s three-match series white wash in Australia in 2016, all in addition to a fourteen-year relationship with Harlequins, having first linked up at just 13-years-old.On confirming his retirement, Clifford said:“I am absolutely gutted to be have to call time on my career at a relatively early stage. I have been at Quins since I was 13 years old and made so many good friends here. It has been an absolute pleasure training and playing with the lads each week and I will miss this environment greatly. I feel proud to have reached 100 appearances for Quins and it is ironic that the injury was sustained in my 100th game!”Clifford’s Quins senior career began in November 2012 when he made his debut as a replacement in the 31-30 Anglo-Welsh Cup win over Northampton Saints.Clifford has captained England at Under 18 and Under 20 level, including England’s victory at the Junior World Championship in 2013. The mobile flanker has also represented England in the Sevens World Series in Japan and Hong Kong in 2014 and not only played but scored for an England XV when playing the Barbarians in May 2015.A fan favourite during his time for club and country, Clifford’s Test debut came as a replacement for Club captain Chris Robshaw during the 2016 Six Nations, arriving from the bench against Scotland at Murrayfield national coach Eddie Jones’ first game in charge of England.ADVERTISEMENT“It is with sadness that Jack has been forced to retire from the game prematurely after another serious injury,” said Head of Rugby Paul Gustard.“I have been a huge fan of Jack from my days as an opposition coach and was delighted to be part of an England staff who awarded him his first of ten England caps.“He was a player who had the ability to change a game with his explosive pace and offloading skills which, allied to his high work rate, meant he was an important player for us last season when he was a mainstay of the side who finished fifth.”ADVERTISEMENTGustard continued: “He is first and foremost a great human being and I have enjoyed watching him grow as a person and I continually applaud his courage and tenacity to fight back from each serious injury he endured. We had signed Jack on a long-term contract at the Club as we believed he was a key part of what we are building and so it is disappointing for everyone that we are unable to see his talents on the field once more. It is no surprise he had started his career off as a centre!“We of course wish him and his fiancé Karis all the best as we help him transition into the next stage of his life. No matter what he does, he was a champion on the field and from a man to a man you respect courage and there are very few people that have demonstrated that level of desire to play and find a way to come back and not only compete but excel.“Jack – thank you for your efforts and congratulations on an incredible career. To think he played over 100 games and 10 games for England in an 8-year-career where he was effectively injured for four years shows how valued he was by anyone who coached him. He will always be remembered and will always be a Harlequin. Travel well, Cliff!” Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

The building was constructed in the first quarter of the 19th century, at the heart of Lisbon’s Baixa Pombalina district. Save this picture!© Nuno AlmendraBy 2016, the building was almost completely vacant and severely dilapidated. The structure of the building had been greatly weakened by the demolition of resistant walls at ground level, which had led to the floors settling.Save this picture!© FG + SGSave this picture!Save this picture!© FG + SGTo make the most of the corner location of the building, it was proposed to change the configuration from two apartments to three per floor, maintaining the original Pombaline layout, with an intricately arrange series of spaces. To address modern demands for comfort and accessibility, a lift was installed at the centre of the building, leaving the original stairwell intact.Save this picture!© FG + SGThe first phase of construction began in 2017, with the aim of correcting the building’s structural shortcomings, repairing the roof, and renovating the ground floor. Structural surveys were carried out between the two phases, along with surveys on the walls and ceilings. Save this picture!© FG + SGExamination of the wall paintings revealed the existence of successive layers of frescoes and tempera paintings in all the apartments. At that point, it was thought vital to uncover the frescoes, which languished unseen beneath newer layers of painting for decades. Preserving them was deemed one of the most important concerns of the whole project. The strategy was adjusted to prevent any scraping against the walls, new solutions for installing the building infrastructure were executed. Save this picture!© FG + SGSubsequently, however, the decision was made not to proceed with the restoration of the frescoes, nor to prioritise specific features. Instead, the consensus was that these traces of the past should be left as they are, overlapping, incomplete, with all their flaws.

Vietnam expels dissident blogger to France

Vietnam expels dissident blogger to France

first_img April 22, 2021 Find out more In an unprecedented move designed to silence a leading dissident, the Vietnamese authorities put Hoang, 62, on a flight to France, where he acquired French citizenship while studying and working there for 28 years before returning to Vietnam in 2000.In the run-up to his expulsion, he was stripped of his Vietnamese nationality on 17 May and then arrested at his home in Ho Chi Minh City on Friday.“I am still in state of shock and very sad,” Hoang said after landing yesterday morning in Paris, where he was met by relatives. He added that he would try to “live in order to continue the fight” that was his “reason for existing.”“Stripping a government opponent of his nationality in order to expel him and silence him is absolutely shocking,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “What has happened to Pham Minh Hoang, a well-known independent and courageous defender of free speech, is shameful, especially for Vietnam.”In a moving interview for RSF on 20 June, Hoang had appealed to France to try to prevent his expulsion by refusing to issue the necessary laissez-passer. He said he was totally opposed to being sent to France and wanted at all costs “to live and die in Vietnam” in order to stay with his family and to keep fighting for freedom of expression.Persecuted, subjected to an illegal procedureThis is the first time that Vietnam’s one-party state has stripped one of its dissidents of their nationality, which is prohibited by Vietnam’s own legislation for a person born in the country, as Hoang was. His lawyer had filed an appeal against the measure on the grounds that it was completely illegal.A respected lecturer in mathematics at the Ho Chi Minh City Polytechnic School and member of the pro-democracy party Viet Tan, Hoang had already been subjected to psychological and judicial harassment.His blog posts about education, the environment and the threats to Vietnamese sovereignty from China led to his being sentenced to 17 months in prison and three years of house arrest in 2011 – a sentence that was reduced thanks to pressure from the French government.Vietnam has one of the worst scores of any country in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, in which it is ranked 175th out of 180.

Breen, Ph.D. Photo courtesy Pacific Oaks CollegePatricia A. Breen, Ph.D., President of Pacific Oaks College & Children’s School (PO), has signed a nationwide statement in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and undocumented immigrant students. PO joins college and university presidents across the nation in its call to uphold and continue DACA.“Pacific Oaks is committed to supporting educational opportunities for all of our students, as well as others who want to strive and ‘dream’. Our university’s core values are deeply rooted in expanding social justice. PO strives to ensure and to teach the principles of equal opportunity and fairness for all. DACA supports these values and opens higher education for everyone. It is imperative that we continue this important program,” said President Breen.As leaders in higher education, the university presidents urge the business, civic, religious, and non-profit sectors to take part in the movement to protect DACA and undocumented immigrant students. As of December 8, 2016, over 500 public and private university presidents have signed the letter and offered to meet with U.S. leaders on the issue.In June 2012, President Obama announced the DACA program, which provides temporary relief from removal proceedings for eligible undocumented young adults, as well as renewable two-year work permits. Prior to DACA, undocumented students met significant hurdles in pursuing higher education due to a lack of legal status. Under DACA, the program has released many of the burdens undocumented immigrant students face in higher education – from gaining access to in-state tuition and financial aid, to being able to work for higher wage employment, and to receiving added job security after graduation.The statement follows below:Statement in Support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program and our Undocumented Immigrant StudentsThe core mission of higher education is the advancement of knowledge, people, and society. As educational leaders, we are committed to upholding free inquiry and education in our colleges and universities, and to providing the opportunity for all our students to pursue their learning and life goals.Since the advent of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012, we have seen the critical benefits of this program for our students, and the highly positive impacts on our institutions and communities. DACA beneficiaries on our campuses have been exemplary student scholars and student leaders, working across campus and in the community. With DACA, our students and alumni have been able to pursue opportunities in business, education, high tech, and the non-profit sector; they have gone to medical school, law school, and graduate schools in numerous disciplines. They are actively contributing to their local communities and economies.To our country’s leaders we say that DACA should be upheld, continued, and expanded. We are prepared to meet with you to present our case. This is both a moral imperative and a national necessity. America needs talent – and these students, who have been raised and educated in the United States, are already part of our national community. They represent what is best about America, and as scholars and leaders they are essential to the future.We call on our colleagues and other leaders across the business, civic, religious, and non-profit sectors to join with us in this urgent matter.
