Here’s how I’d invest £50 per week in a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2021

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Here’s how I’d invest £50 per week in a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2021 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. Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img When I started on my investment journey, I thought the whole thing was incredibly daunting. For what I’ve heard, many other investors feel the same. However, I’ve since learned that investing doesn’t have to be complicated. And by setting up a simple monthly investment plan in my Stocks and Shares ISA, I’ve been able to accrue a large financial nest egg. Stocks and Shares ISA investing I think the best way to start is to set up a monthly investment plan. Most online stockbrokers now offer this option. From as little as £25 per month, investors can select an investment to buy regularly. All that’s needed is to set up a direct debit, and the computer can take care of the rest. 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…Considering the uncertain outlook for the global economy, I’m using a diversified investment strategy for 2021. What this means is I’m concentrating on passively managed index funds and investment trusts. These investments hold a broad array of businesses. As we don’t know what the future holds for the global economy, and how long the pandemic will continue to drag on, it’s impossible to tell at this stage which companies will prosper and which will struggle in 2021.That’s why I’m following the diversified approach for my Stocks and Shares ISA. While it’s impossible to tell which companies will succeed in the short term, I’m optimistic that, in the long run, the UK economy will prosper. I’m also investing some money in international funds. Global diversification is something many investors tend to overlook. I think that’s a mistake. Exposure to regions such as the United States and Asia could provide access to some of the fastest-growing companies in the world.However, investing in these markets directly can be challenging. That’s why I favour international investment funds. These fund managers do all the hard work, so I don’t have to worry about different tax rules or accessing foreign stock exchanges. Monthly investingAnother benefit of setting up small monthly investments is pound cost averaging. Put simply, this is the process of buying a set amount of an investment every month. Doing so irons out market volatility. For example, in a falling market, £50 will go much further than in a rising market.To put it another way, by using pound cost averaging one can automatically buy more stock when the market falls and less when it rises. Research shows that acquiring shares when they’re trading at low levels leads to higher returns in the long run. That’s why I think this strategy makes so much sense. That’s the strategy I plan to use in my Stocks and Shares ISA for 2021. By following this strategy, my figures show it’ll be possible to turn a small investment of £50 a week into a large lump sum over the next few decades.  Image source: Getty Images Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

European Union Reacts to New Trump Tariffs

first_img Facebook Twitter European Union Reacts to New Trump Tariffs Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News European Union Reacts to New Trump Tariffs By NAFB News Service – Oct 6, 2019 SHARE European leaders and businesspeople slammed the Trump Administration’s plans to impose large tariffs on a wide array of European goods.The tariffs are going in place after the World Trade Organization ruled in favor of the U.S. in a longstanding dispute over subsidies given to Airbus, a European aircraft manufacturer.The administration is set to impose tariffs on roughly $7.5 billion in European goods, pending WTO approval.The Washington Post says goods facing a higher duty include Italian cheeses and one of Trump’s favorite targets, French wine.The tariffs will be as high as 25 percent on agricultural and industrial products and could take effect as soon as October 18.The director of Europe’s largest wine and spirits lobby says the retaliatory U.S. tariffs will hit industries that aren’t related to the core of the dispute, which is airline subsidies.The EU’s top trade official, Cecilia Malmstrom, says regardless of the WTO ruling, she opposes retaliatory U.S. countermeasures.“We say that the U.S. opting for applying countermeasures now would be shortsighted and counterproductive.” Previous articleDelayed Corn Grain Maturity & Frost / Freeze WorriesNext articleWeed Control and Herbicides: Don’t Just Write 2019 Off as a Bad Year NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

‘Big Brother’ fears as China prepares to filter pcs for “unhealthy” content

first_imgNews Follow the news on China Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today over China’s plan to force computer manufacturers to install software on personal computers to filter information seen by the Communist Party as “unhealthy”.The ‘Green Dam’ software, which must be installed from 1st July onwards will filter pornographic content, the industry and information and technology ministry has decided.“It is a scenario worthy of Big Brother that is unfolding in China,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “First comes the arrests of dissident bloggers and now the time for surveillance built into computers themselves.”“This Chinese-style filtering will go well beyond pornographic content that it is supposed to deal with and represents a threat to free expression. Until now, Internet-users have been able to access blocked websites using software for getting round censorship. Green Dam is designed to stop that. “We urge companies that sell computers on the Chinese market not to comply with the instruction, which will make them accomplices to censorship”, the organisation said. The industry and information technology ministry said today that companies in the computer market were in May given six weeks to install the new software, paid for by the government (Read the notification in English and Chinese). According to the Wall Street Journal, it would link PCs with a regularly updated database of banned sites and block access to those addresses. The Chinese government said that Green Dam was intended to protect young people from “harmful” content online. The software has since March already been downloaded three million times, is reportedly used in 2,279 schools and has been installed in some 518,000 computers. The companies Lenovo, Inspur and Hedy have apparently already installed the software in 52 million computers.“The appearance of such a strict directive shows the need to protect foreign companies operating in China, who are forced to comply with local laws. This is why we support the need for a law like the Global Online Freedom Act, that makes it possible to stand up to the Chinese government in this kind of situation”, said Reporters Without Borders.A wave of online censorship linked to the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre on 4 June is still being felt within China. Scores of websites such as Twitter, YouTube, Bing, Flickr, Opera, Live, WordPress and Blogger were left inaccessible in the country. Twitter, FlickR, Hotmail, Wikipedia and Radio Free Asia were accessible again from 8th June. “How long is the government going to continue using censorship against the Web 2.0? The authorities are showing the extent to which they are calmly seeking to control the flow of information reaching Internet-users” it concluded.Read the notification in ChineseMore on that issue- New York Times- Wall Street Journal- Human Rights in China April 27, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today over China’s plan to force computer manufacturers to install software on personal computers to filter information seen by the Communist Party as “unhealthy”.

Gym gets 4 citations in 2 days after reopening during lockdown

first_imgCourtesy of 10XFitnessBy MEREDITH DELISO and ALICE CHAMBERS, ABC NEWS(Lackawanna County, Penn.) — A Pennsylvania gym received four citations since reopening during the state’s stay-at-home order.10X Fitness, in Lackawanna County, reopened on Monday. The gym had been shuttered since Gov. Tom Wolf ordered nonessential businesses to close their doors on March 19 to limit the spread of the coronavirus.Co-owner Dan Cronauer told ABC News he thinks gyms should be considered essential businesses.“I think that we have to look at gyms and ask, how important are they for people and for their mental health?” Cronauer said. “I don’t think it’s right to lump certain businesses in certain categories.”Cronauer says there are “a lot of grey areas” when it comes to categorizing businesses. “How’s a gym not essential? Not everyone has access at home,” he said. “The gym can be essential to a lot of people.”The 4-month-old, 24/7 gym, run by Cronauer, his brother and father, is currently open for free with reduced hours, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. So far the gym has had “a steady flow” of customers, Cronauer said, “like a normal day.”“It doesn’t look like Black Friday in here. People are being completely safe and really reasonable throughout the whole thing,” Cronauer said.Since opening, the gym has received four citations — two on Monday and on Tuesday — from the local police. The gym has 10 days to respond, and plans to plead not guilty, Cronauer said. He is estimating each fine is worth around $200, but doesn’t know for sure.In addition to reducing the hours, 10X is allowing 50 people at a time in the 9,000 square-foot space — at least half the capacity of the gym, Cronauer said — and limiting workouts to one hour. On Monday, the gym didn’t have more than 25 people at a time, he said.The gym is also recommending, but not requiring, that gym-goers wear masks. It is also asking that everyone wash their hands before working out, use hand sanitizer regularly and wipe down equipment before and after use.Gym-goers have included nurses who said they needed the gym, Cronauer said. “We had people trying to hug us — we politely declined,” he said.“You can sanitize any machine, you can wear a mask, if somebody’s close, there’s ways around it, there’s ways to protect yourself. so, just be smart, and you’re good,” Mike Lyons, who worked out at 10X on Monday, told ABC affiliate WNEP.Last week, Pennsylvania started to lift some restrictions on work and social interactions in select counties under its phased reopening plan. But all gyms statewide are still closed, along with schools, hair and nail salons, indoor malls, indoor recreation centers and dine-in restaurants and bars. The stay-at-home order is in effect in Lackawanna County through June 4.On Monday, the governor advised business owners to follow the law and warned that those who break it risk losing their certificate of occupancy and eligibility for business liability insurance.“[By] opening before the evidence suggests you should, you are taking undue risks with the safety of your customers,” Wolf said in a statement. “That is not only morally wrong. It’s also very bad business.”The Lackawanna County district attorney also urged nonessential businesses to “continue to follow the law to keep folks safe.”“Law enforcement will attempt to educate business owners on what is allowed under the governor’s order, but those who continue to defy the law will be cited,” DA Mark Powell told WNEP.According to WNEP, the local police will continue to issue more citations if the gym remains open, which could lead to an injunction forcing the gym to close.Over the past month, anti-lockdown protests and demonstrations calling to reopen the economy have been popping up across the country.On Monday, a group of protesters in Clearwater, Florida, called for gyms to reopen in Florida.A Dallas salon owner gained national attention after receiving a citation, a cease and desist letter and a restraining order for keeping her salon open against Gov. Greg Abbott’s stay-at-home order. She was ordered to spend a week in jail for contempt of court last week, but was released early.Still, a majority of Americans approve of stay-at-home orders and disapprove of the protests, according to a new survey from the University of Chicago Divinity School and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.Cronauer isn’t sure how much longer 10X will remain open. People have offered to help the gym pay the fines, but it can’t afford potentially $400 in fines each day, he said.“I’m not sure how long we can withstand it really,” Cronauer said. “We want to stay open for the people who need us as long as we can.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

O.C. Board of Realtors Collects Winter Clothes For Homeless

first_imgBy MADDY VITALEThe Ocean City Board of Realtors kicked off its annual Warmth for Winter coat drive to collect cold weather items for those in need. And this year, items will be donated to the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.“It’s time to switch over your wardrobe from summer to winter and clean out your closets, we encourage our fellow realtors, friends and neighbors to donate items that are gently used or new, that will provide warmth for the winter to families in need,” said Gloria Votta, chairwoman of the Community Services committee for the Board of Realtors.The clothing drive began this week and continues through Nov. 25.Each year local families and business owners drop off to the Board of Realtors an abundance of sweatshirts, blankets, and winter coats to help with the clothing drive.Comforters, blankets and bed sheets are among the items that have been donated each year.Votta said in addition to clothing, people could donate new underwear and socks.“If anyone wants to buy anything, I would suggest buying underwear and socks. I know there is always a need for those items,” she pointed out. “We also need hats, gloves and scarves to donate.”Travel size toiletries, such as shampoos and soaps, are also welcomed.When the Board of Realtors received a letter from the Atlantic City Rescue Mission seeking clothing, the team decided to focus on giving to the rescue mission for the coat drive.“They are having a clothing drive right now asking people to clean out their closets and drawers and donate them to people who need them, so we thought we would help them and join in the drive,” Votta said. “From what I understand, the rescue mission is in dire need of clothing. It is the first time the rescue mission has ever sent out a letter looking for clothing before.”Since about 2011, Votta has headed up the clothing drive with the help of fellow realtors.“I probably have about 20 people on my Community Service Committee,” Votta said of the team that organizes the yearly drive. “I call them all in when we get all of the coats so we can fill up the cars and take them over to where we are donating them.”Each year the clothing drive is done in cooperation with the Clothes Closet of the Ocean City Ecumenical Council, an association of local churches that gives families in need some assistance.However, this year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, there aren’t enough volunteers at the Ecumenical Council and the hours are limited, Votta said.She noted that the Board of Realtors and the Ecumenical Council still plan to partner in February to do the annual food drive.Donations can be dropped off at the office of the Ocean City Board of Realtors at 405 22nd Street. Office hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All donations are placed inside a plastic bag, and plastic bags will be provided as needed.For more information contact Vicki Heebner at 609-399-0128 or [email protected] may be dropped off at the Ocean City Board of Realtors office at 405 22nd Street.
