How to retire comfortably on cheap dividend stocks after the market crash

first_imgHow to retire comfortably on cheap dividend stocks after the market crash 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. Buying dividend stocks following the recent market crash may seem to be a risky move. After all, the full impact of coronavirus on the world economy is yet to be fully known. Companies operating in a variety of regions could experience a slowdown in their growth rates, which may lead to reductions in their dividends.However, falling stock prices can present an opportunity to build a growing passive income stream over the coming years. By considering company fundamentals, diversifying and focusing on the long run, you can retire comfortably with dividend stocks.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…Company fundamentalsAt the present time it is perhaps more important than ever to invest in high-quality businesses. They may be better able to cope with challenging economic conditions. This may mean there is less chance of them cutting dividend payments, and a higher chance of dividends rising over the medium term.As such, buying stocks which have modest debt levels, strong free cash flow and a wide economic moat could be a sound move. Doing so may reduce your risks when investing, and also maximise the rate at which your passive income grows in the global economy’s subsequent recovery.DiversityDiversifying across a number of stocks is a highly effective means of reducing your overall risk. It can significantly lower company-specific risk, which is the impact of one stock’s poor performance on your wider portfolio.At the present time, diversifying across multiple sectors and regions seems to be even more important than ever. For example, the oil and gas industry has experienced an exceptionally challenging few months. Although having exposure to it could be a worthwhile move in the long run, also owning other stocks in different industries may help to limit your possible losses over the coming months.With the cost of buying shares having fallen significantly in recent years, building a diverse portfolio is now more accessible for a broader range of investors. Therefore, it could be a sound means of improving the resilience of your passive income in retirement.Long-term focusIt is easy to become disillusioned, and even stressed, about the performance of your portfolio in the short run. That’s understandable, since market crashes can wipe significant amounts of value from your portfolio.However, such declines have occurred fairly regularly in the past. The stock market and global economy have always recovered from them to post strong growth and improving returns for investors.As such, adopting a long-term standpoint of your portfolio and passive income prospects could be a sound move. Certainly, there may be further difficulties ahead for the world economy. But, as the past performance of the stock market shows, buying dividend shares while they are relatively cheap and offer high yields can be a worthwhile means of generating a growing passive income in older age.

Many funds don’t beat the market consistently over time.Here, I’m going to highlight seven top funds I like for 2021 and beyond. All of these have smashed the market in recent years and I think they’ve a good chance of delivering strong long-term returns for investors going forward.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…Top UK equity funds for 2021Starting with UK-focused funds, one of my top picks in this area is Lindsell Train UK Equity. This fund, which is run by star manager Nick Train, has been a consistently good performer. Over the last five years, it has returned about 60% versus 27% for a FTSE 100 tracker.Train invests in a similar way to Warren Buffett, focusing on companies that are highly profitable and that have strong competitive advantages. It’s a good approach, in my view. Top holdings include Unilever, Diageo, and Relx.Another fund that’s run with a Buffett-like focus is CFP SDL UK Buffettology. The difference between this fund and Lindsell Train however, is it has more exposure to smaller companies. Top holdings here, for example, currently include Games Workshop and Liontrust Asset Management. This has been an excellent performer for years. Over the last five years, it’s returned about 84%.In the sustainable investing space, I like Royal London Sustainable Leaders. This fund’s aim is to achieve capital growth over the medium term. It does this by investing at least 80% of its capital in the shares of UK companies listed on the London Stock Exchange deemed to make a positive contribution to society. It’s shown that investors can invest responsibly without having to sacrifice returns. Over the last five years it’s up about 65%. Top holdings include AstraZeneca, Experian, and the London Stock Exchange.Finally, in the equity income area, my favourite fund for 2021 is TB Evenlode Income. It currently offers a yield of around 3%. This is another fund that focuses on high-quality businesses. Top holdings currently include Relx, Unilever, and Diageo. Over the last five years it’s returned nearly 60% – beating most UK equity income funds comfortably.Global equity fundsIn the global equity space, I like Blue Whale Growth. I’ve named it as my top fund for 2021. This is a concentrated growth fund run by Stephen Yiu. I like Yiu’s approach – he looks for high-quality growth companies at a reasonable valuation. Top holdings currently include Microsoft, Visa, and Adobe. It’s returned about 70% over the last three years.Of course, I can’t discuss top funds and not mention Fundsmith. This fund, which has been a top performer for over a decade now, has turned £10k into more than £50k since its launch in 2010. It’s run by Terry Smith, who also invests like Buffett. Top holdings currently include Microsoft, PayPal, and Facebook.Finally, for a more adventurous play, I like Baillie Gifford Global Discovery. This is riskier than Blue Whale and Fundsmith. It currently holds stocks such as Tesla, Ocado, and Teladoc Health. However, it’s also been a great performer. Over the last five years it’s returned 240%. I think this fund could be worth a small investment as a high-risk, high-reward play. 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.

Can dreams become reality for Racing Metro?

first_img Down on their luck: Racing’s fullback Benjamin Dambielle is one of many on the injury listBy Gavin MortimerTHE TOP 14 is soon to close down for three weeks allowing clubs to take stock of their early season form. For Racing Metro it’s been nothing short of disastrous. Three consecutive league defeats have left them languishing in eighth spot, 17 points behind leaders Toulon and just six clear of the relegation zone. And with an away trip to Toulouse coming up on Thursday, Racing might as well write off another four points.Racing have been hindered by misfortune from the start of the season, losing fullback Benjamin Dambielle and fly-half Jonathan Wisniewski to long term injuries in early September. The highly-rated Wisniewski has a herniated disc and will be missing for months, hence the decision last month to bring in Bath’s Olly Barkley as his replacement.Barkley has started well at Racing but it’s going to take more than just one player to transform the fortunes of the Parisian club. But according to a report in Monday’s Midi Olympique that could soon happen. Under the headline ‘The Dream Team Takes Shape’, France’s rugby newspaper says Racing multi-millionaire owner Jacky Lorenzetti is eyeing up some of the biggest names in the game.Lorenzetti first bought a stake in Racing six years ago when it was ambling along in Pro2. Initially his policy was one of  “signing excellent players and not stars, because we have a habit of saying that with us there is not one individual star, it is the team that counts”. But with Racing struggling to make much of an impact in either the Top or the Heineken Cup it appears Lorenzetti is shooting for stars. Racing’s French fullback Benjamin Dambielle(R) is cared for by medics after being injured during the French Top 14 rugby Union match ASM Clermont Auvergne vs Racing Paris 92, on September 9, 2012 at the stadium Marcel Michelin in the French central city of Clermont-Ferrand. AFP PHOTO / THIERRY ZOCCOLAN (Photo credit should read THIERRY ZOCCOLAN/AFP/GettyImages) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The other big name mentioned by Midi Olympique is former All Black second-row Jason Eaton. The 6ft 7in Hurricanes star won 15 caps for New Zealand between 2005 and 2009 before a serious knee injury sidelined him for much of 2010. Back to his best with the Hurricanes this year, Eaton is allegedly now “seriously considering continuing his career overseas”.For the moment the Dream Team remains just that but Lorenzetti – who made his fortune through property – is a man who normally gets what he wants. British clubs can only hope and pray that Racing’s dream doesn’t become their nightmare. At the top of Lorenzetti’s wishlist are a couple of Welsh aces in Jamie Roberts and Dan Lydiate, the latter’s ankle injury apparently not concerning the Racing president. Roberts in particular is being chased by Lorenzetti and he believes the Cardiff Blues’ salary cap could be the loophole that allows Racing to lure the 25-year-old Wales centre to Paris next season. Toulon have recently dropped out of the race to sign Roberts, instead extending former Wallaby Matt Giteau’s contract for a further two years, but Racing are said to be “still in contact” with the Welshman.Midi Olympique also claims that Racing have made an “approach” to Northampton’s giant prop Soane Tonga’uiha in recent weeks who it says is out of contract with the Saints at the end of the season. The 30-year Tongan has been at Franklin’s Gardens since 2006 but Lorenzetti wants to bring him across the Channel, as he does Martin Castrogiovanni, Leicester’s Italian prop. Stories first surfaced in the French press two weeks ago linking Castrogiovanni to Racing with rumours suggesting Lorenzetti has been a fan of the tight-head for a while. In 2011 Castrogiovanni  turned down a move to France in favour of remaining at Welford Road, declaring at the time that “money isn’t everything”.last_img read more

Let’s stand Apopka strong against violence

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 January 29, 2017 at 12:00 am TAGSGreg Jackson Previous article2017 Apopka MLK Day Parade InfoNext articleApopka man in serious condition after motorcycle crash Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR 1 COMMENT Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply OpinionBy Greg Jackson, Esq.A friend, who is a fellow barrister (lawyer), called to ask my advice on an issue. A few months ago his client leased a townhouse to a tenant and had received a call about water streaks on the downstairs bathroom walls. My friend advised the client to get a plumber to check the pipes inside the walls for leaks. His client seemed pleased with the advice and my friend did not hear any more from him . . . Until last week.Turns out the client contacted a plumber and was told that there was a shower valve leaking in the upstairs bathroom that would be about $300 to repair. The client declined the repair at the time because the leak was small and manageable, but the plumber encouraged him to fix the problem sooner rather than later to prevent future damage. Time went by and the tenant continued to call the client about the expanding water streaks, but the client decided that he could live with a little leakage and took a wait-and-see approach instead of calling the plumber back to make the repair. Having litigated numerous water intrusion cases, I knew exactly where this story was going, but allowed my friend to continue.After several weeks of doing nothing, one day the client received a call from his tenant advising that there was water streaming down the walls and sparks coming from the electrical outlets. The plumber was finally called back and upon inspection determined that the leak was coming from the shower valve that had gone without repair. The repair cost this time was in the neighborhood of $15,000. The plumber told the client that if he had called just a couple weeks earlier he could have cost-effectively repaired the shower valve; but, now due to the client’s delay the repair cost was more significant.Greg JacksonWhen most people hear this story, they say the client should have listened to the plumber and paid $300 to repair the small water leak instead of the $15,000 for the major damage. Well imagine this — although a simplistic version — that the client represents government, the apartment represents Apopka, the tenant represents residents, the plumber represents the Apopka Task Force, the water issue represents the root causes of violence (i.e., lack of economic opportunity, poverty, etc.), and I, interestingly enough, represent myself. For several years, Apopka residents have been expressing their concerns about the increase in violence. Violence that may not be seen throughout all of Apopka, but is most certainly felt in the underserved areas. To address the concerns of the affected Apopka residents, a plan providing recommendations on how to best address the root causes of violence in the community was drafted. One would think that the plan would have been embraced and efforts made to at least explore the possibility of implementing at least one recommendation from the report. But instead, Apopka appears to be employing a wait-and-see approach that seems vaguely similar to the approaches followed in the past or by others. But Apopka has the unique opportunity to standout as a trailblazer by implementing a cutting-edge approach to addressing the root causes of violence.Apopka is often viewed as the little sister to Orlando, and it shouldn’t be. Apopka is oftentimes recognized as the second largest municipality in Orange County, but is rarely given the respect it deserves. As a city, Apopka is a tight-knit community that cares about the wellbeing of each of its residents. Apopka is a fighter willing to stare down and address any adversity. Apopka is no second-fiddle to anyone. Which is why Apopka should willingly take the first step to show Central Florida the path to addressing the root causes of violence by employing a long term strategy. Let’s not wait for another tragedy for the city to stand Apopka Strong, let’s be bold enough to stand Apopka Strong with fresh new ideas and solutions that others can follow. As a good friend once told me, “A house is built to win by people who like winning, not by people who cherish the nuance of stillness.” Now, I say to Apopka, it is time to move away from stillness and stand as the leader you are, as the leaders we all are, to take action — in my humble opinion. amanda more The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The decision by all of us to throw fifteen year old boys to the streets is coming back to haunt all of us.

New ‘Purdue Corn Guy’ Excited to Work With Indiana Farmers

first_img Facebook Twitter New ‘Purdue Corn Guy’ Excited to Work With Indiana Farmers SHARE Bob Nielsen has been “The Purdue Corn Guy” for decades, but he recently went half-time as he prepares to retire this year or next. With that, Purdue has a new “Corn Guy”. Dan Quinn is the new Purdue Extension Corn Specialist.“I’m originally from Central Michigan. I grew up in a farming family up there between Grand Rapids and Lansing. I was able to do my education at Michigan State. So, I did a bachelor’s and master’s in crop and soil science at Michigan State, working in everything from corn, soybeans, sugar beets, potatoes, all of the above. I really got introduced to Extension applied research and kind of fell in love with it. I moved down to Lexington, Kentucky for my PhD, so I worked at the University of Kentucky for the last 3 years. I worked a lot with corn and cover crops.”Quinn says he’s excited to be in Indiana and is really looking forward to meeting farmers and working with them.“There’s a lot of corn in the state. There are a lot of really good corn farmers in the state, a lot of good soils, just good production. So, just being able to work with those folks and getting to work with everyone across state, getting research out there, and getting to meet and speak with everyone, you know that’s a big learning thing for me… So, just learning everything I can. I’m so excited to learn from the folks in this state- just great people from what I’ve seen so far. Great farmers. It’s just a great state to be in.”You can hear more from Quinn as he joins Nielsen and Extension Soybean Specialist Shaun Casteel in the latest Purdue Crop Chat Podcast, dropping this week at hoosieragtoday.com.
