So, let’s assume an annualised return from share investments of 7%.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…I’d invest £20k and compound the gainsI like to plug figures into one of the several online compound interest calculators to see how annualised returns might compound over time. And I reckon the 7% figure is a realistic base assumption. The following table shows what investing £20k and compounding a 7% annualised return will give me over time.And I reckon the figures show the dramatic effect that compounding returns can have on my investments. Indeed, the process of compounding leads to accelerating, exponential returns through the years. For example, after 11 years, my initial £20k investment will have produced more than £22k in total returns, doubling my money and then some.After 40 years of compounding at 7%, I’ll be getting a return in one year that’s close to the initial £20k investment! And the final balance will be worth almost £300k. Kevin Godbold | Sunday, 22nd November, 2020 4 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 20 6,215.92 Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned.

If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. 1,400.00 How I’d beat the effects of inflationOne fair criticism of illustrations like this is that £300k 40 years from now won’t seem as impressive as it does today because of the eroding effects of inflation. And that’s true. But £20k would not be my only investment in a lifetime of investing. Even if I started with £20k, I’d likely add more to my investments through the years. Indeed, my preferred option would be to invest money every month. And doing that would really turbo-charge those returns to produce a much larger pot of invested money in the end.For example, the calculator tells me that adding £100 each month on top of the initial £20k investment would give me a final balance after 40 years of just over £584k. And I reckon a cool half a million is a decent outcome for what is a relatively modest financial commitment each month.Another way to improve the outcome is to achieve an annualised return on investments higher than 7%. And like many other private investors, I’m aiming to achieve that by picking shares and funds carefully. Even small increases in the annualised return can multiply out into big differences in the final balance over time. And that happens because of the powerful effect consistent compounding can have. Indeed, compounding is the ‘secret’ of success for many successful investors such as Warren Buffett and others. 2,754.01 19,592.75 1,835.11 24,500.86 Total returns (£) 299,489.16 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 1,602.86 8,051.03 2,898.00 11 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.

These UK shares have doubled and still yield over 7% Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Christopher Ruane | Thursday, 20th May, 2021 | More on: MNG I like dividend-paying shares because the extra income can come in handy. Whether I spend it or reinvest it, dividend income is an important part of my investing strategy. So I’m always hunting for UK shares that offer an attractive dividend yield.Below I discuss one 7%+ yielding stock I’d consider picking for my 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…High-yield UK sharesThe stock in question is FTSE 100 member M&G (LSE: MNG), a well-known financial services provider in the UK.It was demerged from Prudential in 2019. I think due to its newness as an independent listed company, analysts have struggled to value it. That could explain why its yield has been among the highest in the FTSE 100.The company is best known for its asset management business. Last year, assets under management and administration rose 4% to £367bn.M&G dividendThe company announced in March that it would raise its dividend. The payout for the full year came to 18.23p per share, made up of a 6p interim dividend and 12.23p final one. At the current share price, that’s a 7.7% yield. Among UK shares, I find that attractive.The M&G share price doubled in the past year. So today’s 7%+ yield looks attractive to me, but if I had got in this time last year I would now be looking at a yield of 15%. That’s far ahead of the market average. Is that a red flag?One reason these UK shares were marked down last year was the brevity of the company’s dividend history. But another was concern about how the asset management industry would fare. Amidst the economic downturn last year, it was unclear what the outlook would be for a company like M&G.I think that risk remains for an investment management firm such as M&G. If an economic downturn leads to less customer appetite for investments, revenues and profits could fall.M&G dividend sustainabilityOne of the things I look at when a company has a high dividend is its sustainability.For the past couple of years, the dividend has been covered more than twice by earnings. The dividend was also covered by free cash flow. The company structure makes for a slightly complicated calculation, but it highlights cash remittances of £737m last year. That more than covered the cost of the dividend, at £562m.The disparity between revenues and earnings reflects the structurally low profit margins of the investment management sector. But for now, I see no reason why the dividend could not be supported in the future. However, dividends are never guaranteed. A shift in profitability could cut the company’s ability to pay out dividends, for example because of a more competitive landscape in investment management.Would I buy these UK shares?The M&G yield is attractive to me. I like the company’s strong brand and its commitment to a progressive dividend. I think its exposure to investment management at a time when many people have saved more than usual could be positive.With its 7%+ yield, I would consider buying M&G shares for my portfolio today. The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

Ireland will be aiming to win their first series in Australia for 39 years. They haven’t beaten the Wallabies Down Under since 1979, losing their last ten Tests there, yet they have won three of their last four matches against Australia.Schmidt’s squad selection shows he wants to keep momentum building after Ireland’s Six Nations Grand Slam. A series win in Australia will strengthen their position at second in the world rankings behind New Zealand with the World Cup in Japan a little over a year away.Selection box: Joe Schmidt has included Johnny Sexton in a strong squad (Getty Images)“This has probably been the most difficult selection process for the coaching group to date,” said Schmidt. “The coaching group are excited by the challenge that this three-Test tour will present and from talking to the players we get a sense that they, too, are excited about going on tour and testing themselves against one of the best sides in the world in their own backyard.”The three Tests take place in Brisbane (9 June), Melbourne (16 June) and Sydney (23 June), with the games televised live on Sky Sports.IRELAND’S TOUR SQUADFORWARDS: Rory Best (captain), Tadhg Beirne, Jack Conan, Sean Cronin, Tadhg Furlong, Cian Healy, Iain Henderson, Rob Herring, Dan Leavy, Jack McGrath, Jordi Murphy, Peter O’Mahony, Andrew Porter, Quinn Roux, James Ryan, John Ryan, CJ Stander, Devin Toner. Who has Joe Schmidt picked to take on Australia in a three-Test series this June?

UPDATED: Ireland squad to face AustraliaJoe Schmidt has called Munster hooker Niall Scannell into the Ireland squad to face Australia in a three-Test series this June after captain Rory Best was ruled out of the tour with a hamstring injury.Vice-captains Johnny Sexton and Peter O’Mahony are likely to share the captaincy in Australia. That pair are among a number of British & Irish Lions players selected in the strong 32-man squad, with the likes of Conor Murray, Tadhg Furlong and Iain Henderson also selected.Related: Johnny Sexton on his life in picturesThere are two uncapped players in the squad, with Leinster fly-half Ross Byrne and Scarlets lock/back-row Tadhg Beirne rewarded for their strong club form.Beirne has been a standout performer for the Scarlets over the past two seasons, with his turnover stats particularly impressive, and the fact he is returning to Ireland to join Munster next season means this is a good time to bring him into the national squad.In the mix: Tadhg Beirne has been rewarded for his impressive Scarlets form (Getty Images)Byrne, 23, has performed well for Leinster at fly-half this season when called upon. Although Johnny Sexton is undoubtedly the province’s first choice No 10, Byrne has been picked ahead of Joey Carbery at times.Leinster scrum-half Luke McGrath hasn’t been selected, with Ulster’s John Cooney, who won his first and so far only cap against Japan last summer, favoured as the third nine behind Murray and Kieran Marmion.

Omar Ali Hassan (Goobjoog) was freed in this morning without charges. He had been arrested arbitrarily in Somaliland on his return from the Somali capital, Mogadishu, on 8 July. He has spent 3 days in illegal detention. *****************Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of Omar Ali Hassan, a journalist who was arrested arbitrarily in the breakaway northwestern region of Somaliland on 8 July on his return from the Somali capital, Mogadishu.Also known as Omar Serbia, Omar Ali Hassan reports for the Mogadishu-based radio and TV station Goobjoog. He was arrested shortly after landing at the airport in Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland, which unilaterally declared its independence in 1991. “We condemn the illegal detention of Omar Serbia, who was arrested without any grounds being given, said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. His arrest is a result of the criminalization of journalists who cover neighbouring Somalia. We urge Somaliland’s authorities to free him at once and to respect media freedom in their territory, in accordance with the country’s laws.” As RSF reported at the time, freelance journalist and blogger AbdulMalik Muse Oldon was arrested in a similar fashion at Hargeisa airport in February on his return from a visit to Mogadishu, where he met the Somali president. He was sentenced to two years in a prison on charges of publishing false news and inciting public unrest. Somalia is ranked 167th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

The order was passed by a bench comprising Justices SK Kaul, Ajay Rastogi and Aniruddha Bose in a contempt petition filed by KK Agarwal through Adv.Ravi Sharma, against non-appointment of a law member to the Commission. The plea was moved seeking enforcement of a 2018 verdict of the Supreme Court, holding that it is mandatory that there should be a person of law as a Member of the Commission, which requires a person, who is, or has been holding a judicial office or is a person possessing professional qualifications with substantial experience in the practice of law, who has the requisite qualifications to have been appointed as a Judge of the High Court or a District Judge. Chairman Of State Electricity Regulatory Commission Need Not Mandatorily Be A High Court Judge: SC As per the Commission’s website, it is presently comprised of Mr. PK Pujari, Chairperson and two members— Mr. Indu Shekhar Jha and Mr. Arun Goyal (both of whom were appointed after the 2018 verdict) The three-Judge bench noted that the appointments of any Member after the 2018 judgment could not have taken place without first appointing a Member from law. It observed, “any Member who has been appointed after our judgment, should not be permitted to function as that would be permitting functioning contrary to the judgment of this Court requiring a person from law to be appointed first.” At this juncture, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta informed the Court that the process for appointing a person of law is expected to be concluded during the month of September, 2020. He also submitted that the two members who were appointed after the 2018 verdict shall be asked to proceed on leave till such time as the person from law is appointed. “We take the statement on record,” the Bench said while posting the matter to September 25. It added, “We make it clear that if the person of law is so appointed within this period of time, the persons who would go on leave would be permitted to re-join.” Click Here To Download Order Read Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Glasgow company determined to recover after fatal explosionOn 18 May 2004 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. The company at the centre of last Tuesday’s factory explosion in Glasgowsuffered a ‘mini-9/11’, but is determined to survive, its chairman said. Campbell Downie, the semi-retired chairman of ICL Plastics, told PersonnelToday in an exclusive interview that he is devastated by the accident, whichkilled nine people and injured more than 30 others. “This has been a mini-9/11 for us,” he said. “It’s somethingyou don’t expect, something you never think will happen.” Many of those killed – including the chief executive and financial officer –were in a training and management meeting when the explosion happened.Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the blast. Downie said his priority is to care for survivors and families who have lostloved ones, but he and his wife Lorna Downie, the firm’s personnel officer, arealso addressing the company’s needs. Despite the loss of almost half the board, he says ICL’s staff, its strongrelationship with suppliers, and multiple manufacturing sites will help it pullthrough. The firm employs 110 people across four sites in Glasgow, Edinburgh andNewcastle. It prides itself on the quality and flexibility of its workforce.”People are multi-disciplined here – they can turn their hand to a numberof tasks. We’re really having to rely on that right now,” Downie said. Production normally carried out in Glasgow is being farmed out to thesubsidiary companies in Edinburgh and Newcastle. Because records were lost in the explosion, tasks such as payroll aretemporarily being carried out by the company’s bank. The company expects itsadministration department to be functioning this week. Goodwill is also playing its part, with suppliers offering the services oftheir own staff. Former directors have also volunteered to help out. The company’s spirit is epitomised in the struggle of director John Turner,who lost both his legs in the accident. “All he wants to do is help others involved,” said Downie. “Ithink that’s incredible, but that’s what we all want to do now.” Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.
