Since 1999, the FTSE 100 has produced some pretty disappointing capital gains for investors, if at all.The FTSE 100’s golden yearsWhen I was young, it was a great time to buy shares. The FTSE 100 – introduced in January 1984 at 1,000 points – soared over 16 years. During the dotcom boom, it hit a closing high of 6,930 on 31 December 1999. Over 17 years, it rose nearly sevenfold.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…But millennium madness wore off, dotcom boom turned to bust, with the FTSE 100 crashing to 3,287 in March 2003. Then it raced to a post-2000 closing high of 6,732 in June 2007. Thanks to the global financial crisis of 2007/09, the next crash was brutal. In March 2009, the FTSE 100 hit a closing low of 3,512.FTSE 100’s noughties comebackThe Noughties brought decent capital gains for investors, notably in 2010 (9%), 2013 (14.4%), 2016 (13.9%) and 2019 (12.1%). The FTSE 100’s all-time closing high was a record 7,877 in May 2018.Until this year, it had traced what I call ‘The Big W’, plunging and rising twice. It was 7,542 on 1 January, climbing to 2020’s peak of 7,675 on 17 January. Then came the Coronavirus crisis and oil crash. This trashed the FTSE 100, which closed at 4,994 on 23 March.Index down around 10% in 21 yearsThe index is now hovering around 6,262 so is down 9.6%, or almost a tenth, this millennium. That’s tough for investors who bought at or near the various market peaks. Of course, no one buys only at the absolute top, but you take my point.Then again, dividends ranging from 3.5% to 7.5% a year boosted investors’ returns. Yet the FTSE 100 has serially underperformed among the world’s largest market indices.Because of the risks of coronavirus, a slow economic recovery and a no-deal Brexit (plus the November US election and US-China frictions), I’m not a big fan of the index today. Indeed, I would avoid multiple sectors, including airlines, travel companies, consumer goods and services, and real estate.I think now is a time for stock-picking – and what better way to avoid picking dogs than to pick blazing stars?Bunzl: great British success storyBunzl is such a dull business that most folks have never heard of it. Yet it’s been a UK-listed company since 1957, with its shares selling for 73 years.It completely reinvented itself several times throughout its 166-year history, as it evolved to suit the times. Today, this FTSE 100 star – valued at over £7.6bn – is a world-class and widely admired global distribution and outsourcing company.At their current price of 2,265p, the shares aren’t cheap, but cheap often means nasty. Bunzl shares are expensive relative to the FTSE 100 because it’s a high-quality business run by excellent management. Quality always costs, but it’s also worth buying.Since 2014, yearly revenues, post-tax profits, earnings per share and dividends have risen every year. That’s five years in a row of improving returns for shareholders. Growth and consistency on this scale is worth paying a little extra for. What’s more, Bunzl distributes PPE (personal protective equipment), which is in high demand in the fight against Covid-19,At 2,265p, the shares are up 4.1% in the past 12 months, having dodged the Covid-19 market collapse. They trade on a historic price-to-earnings ratio of 21.6 and offer a modest dividend yield of 2.2%.Note that Bunzl has scrapped its final dividend for 2019, but these regular cash payouts will be back. After all, it had previously raised its dividend for 27 years in a row. That’s why I’d buy this FTSE 100 star today.

Stock market crash 2! Here’s what I’d do right now as the FTSE 100 falls below 6,000

first_img 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.

Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! Are we facing a second stock market crash? As I write, the FTSE 100 has fallen to around 5,858, as the recovery runs out of steam. The world is worrying about a second wave of Covid-19 infections. Investors are understandably downbeat.Let’s not be too gloomy. If you’re investing in FTSE 100 shares, you shouldn’t be looking to make a profit this week, or even this year. You should be investing for a minimum of five years, and preferably much, much longer. Over such a lengthy timescale, the world should see off the pandemic, and recover from this year’s short sharp shock.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…History shows that investors who buy shares in the middle of a stock market crash reap the rewards over the longer run. This is a great opportunity to buy top FTSE shares at bargain prices, as more short-sighted investors hold back. Your aim should be to hold onto them for the long run, to allow markets to recover and your dividends to compound.FTSE 100 bargains galoreRight now, I’m scouring the market for FTSE 100 shares, and there are plenty out there. Personally, I’d not just target companies whose share prices have fallen in the stock market crash but, specifically, those whose underlying businesses are fundamentally stable.For example, FTSE 100 housebuilders, such as Barratt Developments and Persimmon, should still see plenty of demand. The property shortage remains, interest rates are at record lows, the Help to Buy scheme is being extended. Plus there’s a stamp duty holiday.I would also look for companies such as Reckitt Benckiser Group and Unilever that sell everyday household goods people still need, even in a downturn. Or defensive dividend stocks such as National Grid and Pennon Group.Cigarette makers British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands Group, pharmaceutical giants AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline, international miners BHP Group and Rio Tinto, and software company Sage Group may all tempt.Stock market crash cautionI don’t think you need to take outsized risks to profit from the stock market crash. If we get further lockdowns, airlines, such as easyJet and Ryanair, or other travel firms, such as cruise operator Carnival and InterContinental Hotels Group, could be a risk too far.The banks have been hammered by the stock market crash. Today, HSBC Holdings is down another 6.5% after warning of Covid-related bad debt charges. Its share price has halved in a year. This could be an amazing buying opportunity, or a risky value trap. Nobody knows for sure. Ultimately, it’s your call.You can limit your exposure to a second stock market crash by feeding regular amounts into the market, rather than via a big lump sum. If the market crashes again, simply buy more stocks at the lower price.As always, hold on for the long term. The FTSE 100 will recover. But it may take time.

Here’s how I’d invest in the best shares now to make a £30k passive income in retirement

first_img Investors will have differing views on what are the best shares to buy now. However, they’re likely to share common traits. For example, they could be financially-sound businesses that have a competitive advantage over their sector rivals. Similarly, they may have low valuations given their financial prospects that provide scope for capital growth over the long run.Buying such businesses on a regular basis over a long time period could lead to a generous nest egg. And that would provide a surprisingly large passive income to draw on. As such, investing in them now could be a logical move.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…Identifying the best shares to buy nowAs mentioned, the best shares to buy now could be those companies with solid financial and market positions. The global economy is currently experiencing a hugely difficult period as a result of lockdowns imposed in response to coronavirus.This could mean the financial performances of many businesses suffer in the coming months. Financial strain may mean those companies with low debt and access to liquidity may stand a better chance of surviving to benefit from a likely economic recovery.Similarly, stocks with competitive advantages may fare better than their peers in 2021. For example, they may have unique products or a lower cost base that allows them to generate higher sales and/or margins than rivals.This may help them to survive short-term difficulties, as well as strengthen their earnings potential over the long run through increasing market share. Over time, they may deliver higher share price returns than market peers.Retiring on a worthwhile passive incomeThe best shares to buy now are also likely to be those companies trading at attractive prices based on their long-term financial prospects. Many sectors such as financial services, retail and hospitality are trading at low valuations versus their long-term averages based on the challenges they face today.However, they may be able to deliver improving financial performances that make today’s valuations seem extremely low. Buying them while they trade at low prices may provide scope to outperform the wider stock market.Even if an investor matches the stock market’s returns in future, they could obtain a surprisingly large passive income in retirement. The FTSE 100 has delivered an 8% annualised total return since inception in 1984.Assuming the same return on a £500 monthly investment over a 30-year time period would produce a nest egg valued at £750,000. From that, a 4% annual withdrawal would mean a £30,000 income.However, by investing in the best shares now, it’s possible to obtain a higher rate of return than the stock market over the long run. This may produce a larger nest egg in older age. And that could mean a more generous passive income in retirement. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Stewart’s Melville – School Team of the Month (May 2011 issue)

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Back (l-r): C Spence (coach), J Johnstone, S Bergius, M Black, J Hannay, J Duncan, C Taylor, L Bargery, H Lindsay, A St Clair, M Campbell, R Warnock, A Greig, R Mackintosh, A Hagart, D Gibb-Morris, B Lockie (coach). Front: A Masson, C Halliday, J Morgan, R McPhail (capt), D St Clair, C Gilfillan, I Miller. Sitting: A Hughes. THE EDINBURGH school fended off challenges from far and wide to earn their first-ever Team of the Month award for their terrific run in the Brewin Dolphin Scottish Schools Cup.Stewart’s Melville got to their third consecutive final and reversed last year’s loss against Edinburgh Academy by beating their capital city rivals 19-10 in front of a raucous 4,000 crowd at Murrayfield. In a full-blooded and close contest, a try by wing Adam Greig plus 14 points from the boot of fly-half Alex Hagart prevailed.With only four boys returning from the previous year and no one finding favour with the Scottish selectors, prospects weren’t rosy at the start of the season.The XV started slowly, with defeats in their first three games, but improved radically under the outstanding leadership of non-stop flanker Ross McPhail.After decisive wins in the pool phase over Royal High School, Gordonstoun, Fettes and George Heriot’s, there followed tough cup defeats of Dollar Academy and George Watson’s. A try by centre Jack Hannay and a conversion and penalty by Hagart squeezed them past the latter team, 10-5. The school has always believed in expansive rugby and this has been evident with both wings, Leo Bargery and Andrew Hughes, being the leading try-scorers in a season to remember.Check out April 2011’s School Team of the Month…This article appeared in the May 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Raymond Banzouzi who was sent by the Diocese of Kinshasa in the neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo to “establish the church in that part of the world and spread the gospel to the west of the country and beyond.”With a total area of about 342, 000 square kilometers, the Republic of Congo would prove to be hard to penetrate especially in the southern parts where Anglicanism had not even been heard off. But through their determination and resilience, the men sent by the Diocese of Kinshasa, one of the nine dioceses of the Anglican Province of Congo, were able to sow the first seeds of Anglicanism in the area.The men built on the vision of an ardent evangelist from Uganda who introduced the Anglican Church in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Canon Apolo Kivebulaya, that the Anglican Church “reaches all parts of the country from east to west and beyond the country.”Currently, Congo Brazzaville is under the leadership of the Diocese of Kinshasa and last December its Diocesan Committee, under the presidency of Archbishop Isingoma Kawa, appointed the Rt. Rev. Molanga Botola as missionary bishop to Congo Brazzaville with the main mission of “preparing a new diocese of Congo Brazzaville.”Botola emphasizes: “It is for this reason that the church here has put evangelization as a top priority. In fact it is the priority of priorities. The department of evangelisation organizes massive campaigns of evangelisation throughout all the parishes. Earlier this year we had a huge evangelisation campaign for deliverance in Kintele village situated about 45 kilometers from Brazzaville-City.”He added, “The results were positive because many people decided to come to Jesus Christ that day. Our vision is to create a community of engaged Christians to follow and to serve Jesus Christ.”The Church in Congo Brazzaville has the challenge of inadequate land on which to build more churches as well as start new developmental projects to benefit the community. “We also have the priority of purchasing plots for the church throughout the country for projects,” he said. “We want to have a self-reliant community with the objective of fighting against poverty among our people.”Any new undertaking requires trained personnel to carry out various tasks. Therefore, the Church in Congo Brazzaville is also concentrating on training clergy and lay people through various seminars and workshops.“Currently, we have conducted training on the preaching of the Gospel organized by Langham Preaching,” said the missionary bishop. “At the end of 2013, we held a seminar on the leadership in the church, which is in line with our mission of contributing to the growth of the church here so that it can one day become a diocese.”For a relatively young church such as the one in Congo Brazzaville, the contribution of youth to its growth is important. The church there has a specific department to deal with youth and Sunday school children.“Our plan is to make steadfast the faith of young people and children in spiritual engagement in order to contribute to the challenge of the salvation of souls in Jesus Christ,” said Botola. “Young people also need to be active and self-reliant so we have activities in such as conferences on HIV/AIDS and also participation in choir activities.”Despite the many challenges that the church has faced in this region, it has continued to grow from strength to strength and it’s worth noting the contributions and support from various Anglican agencies around the world including the Anglican Communion Office and the Mothers’ Union.

David Halaifonua red carded for high swinging arm hit on Bradley Davies

first_imgTuesday Nov 10, 2015 David Halaifonua red carded for high swinging arm hit on Bradley Davies Gloucester’s David Halaifonua received a straight red card for this high and dangerous tackle during their 23-3 loss to Wasps in the Aviva Premiership at the weekend. It wasn’t the only red card of the match, as a Wasps prop was sent off for punching near the end. Tongan winger Halaifonua flew in to make the hit as Wasps spread the ball wide, and Wales lock Bradley Davies showed some quick hands to release the pass.Halaifonua, who played for his country at the Rugby World Cup, committed himself to the big shot but ended up making it slightly late but more significantly, too high.He was actually featured here on Rugbydump in June last year too, after making another brutal hit against Samoa in the Pacific Nations Cup. You can view that big hit here.Davies needed medical attention and after a rather confusing exchange between referee and Television Match Official – the referee was happy with yellow until an extra description was given – Halaifonua was sent off.Second rower Davies walked off the field but later returned after receiving a medical assesment.Wasps already led 16-0 at the time so going a player down didn’t help Gloucester’s cause.Wasps did lose a man themselves later in the match, as Lorenzo Cittadini was also red carded, for punching in a ruck in the 74th minute. It didn’t have any bearing on the result though, as Wasps won comfortably to climb above Gloucester on the Premiership table.View match highlights, which include an excellent Christian Wade try and the other red card.Do you think a red card was harsh, or did the ref make the correct call?UPDATE: Halaifonua has been banned for two weeks for the tackleADVERTISEMENT 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.

Institute to develop first direct mail code

first_img The Institute of Fundraising is to develop the first direct mail code of fundraising practice and is setting up a working party to achieve this.The code will cover legal and best practice issues related to dm fundraising; the use of incentives’ communications and content; data protection; relevant standards from the DMA code and the Advertising Standards Authority’s non-broadcast code and their relation to the new code. It will also review the code of fundraising practice on ‘reciprocal charity mailings and consider whether it should be incorporated into the new code. Nominations to join the working party have to be submitted to the institute by Friday 1 September with the first meeting due to take place in September.
