Don’t ‘save’ for retirement! I’d buy UK shares to capitalise on a stock market rally

first_img See all posts by Peter Stephens Don’t ‘save’ for retirement! I’d buy UK shares to capitalise on a stock market rally 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. Even though many UK shares have moved higher in price in recent months, there seems to be scope for a stock market rally over the long run.Indeed, the UK stock market continues to trade lower than it did prior to the coronavirus pandemic. With economic growth set to return and major monetary policy stimulus prompting improving investor sentiment, the long-term outlook for stocks seems to be attractive.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…As such, now could be the right time to avoid relying on cash to build a retirement nest egg in favour of investing money in undervalued UK shares.The likelihood of a stock market rallyOf course, there is no guarantee that a stock market rally will take place in the coming years. The coronavirus pandemic is an extremely rare event that has left all investors unable to accurately predict the course for the global economy over the coming months.However, history suggests that the stock market recovers well from even its very worst challenges. For example, bear markets such as the 1987 crash and the global financial crisis caused severe challenges for investors in the following months and years. However, the stock market recovered on both occasions, and has been able to deliver high-single-digit returns over recent decades.Therefore, investors who have a long time horizon are likely to benefit from a stock market rally. Through buying and holding high-quality companies, it is possible to obtain significantly higher returns than are available from other mainstream assets. In doing so, an investor can benefit from the effect of compounding. This could turn a modest investment into a large nest egg over the long run.Avoiding large sums of cash in favour of UK sharesOf course, holding some cash in case of emergency is always a sound move. Even if there is a stock market rally in the next decade, an investor needs to retain a degree of liquidity. Otherwise, they may be unable to remain solvent should their financial situation change. For example, their employment position may change. They may require access to cash in the short term to cover a temporary reduction in earnings.Therefore, holding some cash is a prudent step to take. However, relying on savings accounts to build a retirement nest egg is unlikely to provide financial freedom in older age. The return on cash has generally been substantially lower than that of UK shares. In the coming years, the difference between the two assets may be even greater due to persistently low interest rates.As such, now could be the right time to start building a portfolio of UK stocks ahead of a likely stock market rally. Doing so could have a positive impact on an investor’s retirement plans, and may even allow them to retire early.

Strain of government shutdown eased by local businesses

first_imgEmily Gustafson printThe Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe franchise features two food trucks that operate in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Source: Ruthie’s Rolling CafeWhile federal employees throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area missed paychecks due to the government shutdown, local businesses stepped up to help during their time of need. During the 35-day government shutdown, federal employees were either furloughed or had to work without pay. After two missed paychecks for federal employees, President Trump agreed to a three-week spending package that re-opened the government.Many Transportation Security Administration agents, Federal Aviation Administration agents and other federal employees felt the financial strain of missed paychecks.However, Ruthie’s Rolling Café, a local food truck, joined other local organizations to help the community make it through the shutdown.The food truck created “Operation Feed the Feds” project, which worked to provide affected employees with free meals by traveling to different federal buildings throughout the shutdown. Ruthie’s partnered with Lyda Hill Philanthropies for this initiative serving more than 1,000 people. The food truck visited different facilities like the Dallas Love Field Airport and the Homeland Security field office in Fort Worth. Each employee received a free sandwich, drink and bag of chips. Robin Skinner, a long-time Ruthie’s employee, said the project’s efforts didn’t go unnoticed. “The outpouring of appreciation was just so heartwarming,” Skinner said. “It was really amazing to see everybody coming together and working to help these people, because they really needed a little bit of relief.”Ruthie’s has a past of giving back to the community.Owner Ashlee Kleinert started the food truck with the intention of helping the community. Kleinert said the food truck was never created to take a profit, so all the money went back into the community to support businesses and nonprofits in the DFW area. Even though many federal employees suffered financial strain under the shutdown, efforts from Ruthie’s and other local companies eased their burden.Federal employees hungrily wait to receive Ruthie’s specialty grilled cheese sandwiches. Source: Dallas Does Good “Even though it was just a sandwich, just a meal, I think just that people were thinking about them made them feel so good,” Skinner said. Another organization that responded to the shutdown was the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB). TAFB partnered with the North Texas Food Bank, DFW International Airport and the Federal Executive Board to help provide food to affected employees.TAFB brought their services directly to DFW International Airport so that employees had easy access to food. TAFB partners with 270 other food pantries including a mobile food pantry, making their services widely available in case of another shutdown. Federal employees could visit the makeshift food bank at the DFW International Airport. Source: Tarrant Area Food BankLasting Effects of the Shutdown Had the government shut down gone much longer, it may have been a different story for federal employees, especially those benefiting from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.SNAP benefits, which include a benefit commonly known as  food stamps, would have continued through February, according to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The government reopened before March benefits could be in question. However, the government opened only when the White House and Congress agreed to a three-week spending plan. This package will ensure the government can function until February 15, according to the Washington Post. Considering there was no progress made to negotiate a long-term funding plan, federal employees may need to prepare in case of another shutdown soon.  Previous articleWhat we’re reading: Trump vs. DemocratsNext article#CarterBoys19 fills needs, adds speed to Horned Frogs Emily Gustafson RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Emily Gustafson Source: Ruthie’s Rolling CafeThe Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe franchise features two food trucks that operate in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

One is an 11-year old case over his remarks in 2009 to an interview in Tehelka magazine that at least half of the 16 CJIs were corrupt. Another is a suo moto case taken two weeks back over two of his tweets about CJI and Supreme Court.On August 4, the bench – also including Justices B R Gavai and Krishna Murari – reserved orders to consider the explanation tendered by Bhushan in the 2009 case.The next day, the bench reserved orders in the recently taken contempt case.The petition, which was filed after contempt notice was served on Bhushan, challenged Section 2(c)(i) of the Contempt of Courts Act as vague, arbitrary, subjective and leading to violation of fundamental right to free speech.The petitioners state that the offence is “rooted in Colonial assumptions”, which have no place in a democracy. The provision is highly subjective, inviting greatly different readings and application. Thus, the vagueness of the offence violates Article 14 which demands equal treatment and non-arbitrariness. “For instance, in P N Dua vs P. Shiv Shankar , the respondent was not held guilty of scandalising the court despite referring to Supreme Court judges at a public function as “antisocial elements i.e. FERA violators, bride burners and a whole horde of reactionaries” on account of the fact that he was Law Minister. However, in D.C. Saxena vs Chief Justice of India, the respondent was held guilty of criminal contempt for alleging that a Chief Justice was corrupt and that an F.l.R. under the l.P.C. should be registered against him”, the plea states.The provision is also challenged as violative of Article 14 on the ground of “manifest arbitrariness”, on the basis of principles laid down by the SC in Shayara Bano (Triple Talaq case) and Navtej Johar (decriminalization of homosexuality).In 2013, the United Kingdom had abolished the offence of scandalizing the judiciary as form of contempt of court based on UK Law Commission’s recommendation that the law was vague and not compatible with freedom of speech.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Mom dials 911 screaming her daughter’s trapped in tree, surrounded by alligators

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ORLANDO) — A Florida mom made a frantic cry for help while on a call with a 911 dispatcher because her teen daughter was trapped in a tree for a half an hour with hissing alligators below.“My daughter’s stuck in a frickin’ tree and there’s gators surrounding her,” the mom said on the phone call to 911. “We can’t get her out.”The close encounter with the alligators occurred at around 3 p.m. on Friday along Forest Service Road near Alexander Springs in Altoona, according to a Lake County Sheriff’s Office report.The teen’s mom told the dispatcher that her daughter “got into the tree to get out of the water” and had been clinging to its branches for dear life for several minutes.“Oh my god, please hurry. Hurry, hurry,” the mom told the dispatcher. “Oh, my god, my daughter is going to be [sic] dead.”When Deputy Mitch Blackmon arrived at the tree with a rope swing in a popular swimming area, he wrote in the report that the teen appeared physically tired from keeping herself in the tree, adding that “the alligator was approximately 4 feet from me, 3 feet from the base of the tree.”Blackmon reported that at least one of the alligators, measuring about “10 to 11 feet” was unfazed by his arrival.“My presence failed to scare the alligator away and it began encroaching on my area,” Blackmon wrote in the report.He then stated he aimed his Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, fired one deadly .223 round “killing the alligator,” according to the report.A local marine biologist was summoned to evaluate the cause of death, the report stated.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Teen walking dog hears cries for help from kidnapped man locked in car trunk

first_imgWABC(IRVINGTON, N.J.) — On Thursday morning, 17-year-old Kayla Rose was walking her dog around her neighborhood in Irvington, New Jersey, on Thursday morning when she heard someone crying for help.The muffled sounds were coming from the trunk of a car parked on the street.“I heard knocking and scratching on the trunk of the car, and I just backed up because I was scared,” Rose told WABC in a recent interview. “And then I heard it again. And then I said, ‘Hello.’ And he was like, ‘Hello, can anybody help me?’”Rose ran inside her house to tell her mother what she heard. She also alerted neighbors who came out to help and called 911.“I got a crowbar and tried to pop the trunk, but it just bent the metal,” neighbor Joe Bollaro told WABC. “The cops were coming, so I didn’t want to, I said, ‘They’re coming. Hold on.’ I said, ‘Can you breath?’ He said, ‘Yeah.’”Police arrived on scene and opened the locked trunk. The man inside was then transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Union County Prosecutor’s Office.“He was shaken up, he was beat up,” Rose’s mother, Marie Banks, told WABC. “I guess he was very happy, thankful for my daughter that she found him.”After a preliminary investigation, police learned the man had been carjacked, kidnapped and robbed the previous night in Hillside, about 3 miles south of Irvington.Two gun-wielding suspects took the victim to local banks in the area and ordered him to withdraw sums of cash, then drove to Irvington, where they left him locked in the trunk of the car, according to the prosecutor’s office.The suspects remain at large, and the investigation into the alleged incident is ongoing. The Union County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
