No savings at 40? I’d buy cheap UK shares in an ISA to make a passive income in retirement

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Peter Stephens | Saturday, 24th October, 2020 Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Buying cheap UK shares after the stock market crash could be a sound means of obtaining a generous passive income in retirement.The stock market has a long track record of delivering growth following its declines. As such, now could be the right time to build a diverse ISA portfolio while many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares currently offer low valuations.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…Over time, they could make a positive impact on your retirement prospects – even from a standing start at age 40.Buying cheap UK shares to make a passive incomeBuying cheap UK shares to make a passive income in retirement may seem to be a relatively risky strategy following the stock market crash. After all, risks such as Brexit and coronavirus could weigh on the performances of indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250.However, over the long run, a portfolio of British shares could outperform other assets and produce a relatively large nest egg. The stock market has an excellent track record of recovering from its downturns to post new record highs. For anyone aged 40, or who has a long time horizon until they retire, there’s likely to be ample time for the stock market to recover from any future downturn to provide a passive income in older age.By contrast, the returns available from assets such as cash and bonds may mean they fail to provide a portfolio big enough from which to draw a passive income in retirement. Low interest rates mean the returns from cash and bonds may fail to match inflation. Meanwhile, the high prices of other assets such as gold and buy-to-let property means that cheap UK shares may offer the best means of obtaining high returns in the coming years.Simple steps to create an ISA portfolioInvesting in cheap UK shares to make a passive income in retirement may seem like a daunting step for anyone to take. However, it’s relatively simple and straightforward to capitalise on the stock market’s long-term growth rate. Online accounts such as an ISA can be opened in a matter of minutes. Their costs are often very low, which makes them accessible to a wide range of investors. Their charges are also likely to be easily outweighed by their tax benefits.Of course, the stock market can be relatively volatile at times. Therefore, it’s prudent to diversify across a wide range of companies within one’s ISA so that one’s not reliant on a small number of businesses for returns and eventual passive income. Furthermore, investing money in businesses with solid financial positions and sound growth strategies may enhance one’s return prospects. This may make the task of generating an income in retirement easier, and may even help to bring forward one’s retirement date.

Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgIn a rip-roaring weeekend of European Rugby several stars justified their sky-high reputations, while others had a weekend to forget LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Nice one, NigelReferee Nigel Owens gave us all a giggle – not for the first time – when he found a humourous and typically Welsh way to stop George Robson and Bradley Davies coming to blows during the Harlequins v Wasps match.The two were grappling with each other, standing up, and after Owens’s repeated requests to “leave it” had fallen on deaf ears, he quipped: “If you two want a cwtch (cuddle), do it off the field not on it!”See the clip for yourself here.Mention also goes to Helen O’Reilly, who became the first female to referee an Ulster Bank league match when she took charge of the Division 2B game between Sundays Well and Kanturk on Friday evening.O’Reilly, a former Ashbourne and St Mary’s player, was appointed to the IRFU’s national panel last December. Huge contribution: the giant Devin Toner was immense for LeinsterSetting the TonerThere was any number of great individual performances for Leinster in their 50-8 victory over Castres, but Devin Toner got the nod as Man of the Match for  his excellent lineout work and his contribution around the field in attack and defence.Eight lineout takes, seven carries and six tackles represents a good day at the office for Toner, but there are plaudits too for Rob Kearney, who made 143m in attack, Ian Madigan, who kicked six conversions and a penalty, plus each of the seven different try-scorers. Leinster looked confident, ambitious and slick, albeit against a Castres side who lost interest in the European competition a long time ago. Dangerous playToby Flood joins the hall of shame this week after clattering into Anthony Watson’s head when the Bath full-back was already on the ground after a tackle. Flood piled in in a totally unnecessary and reckless manner and Watson had to go off injured. Flood is lucky he didn’t cause serious damage.In the same game Matt Banahan incurred the wrath of the French crowd with an ugly high tackle on scrum-half Jean-Marc Doussain, but at least the No 9 was standing up at the time. Happy days: Bath’s players celebrate after clinching their win in Toulouse Record for RhysThe Scarlets may have had the final nail driven into their Champions Cup coffin with a 40-23 defeat at Leicester Tigers, but there was still something to celebrate for Rhys Priestland as his two penalties meant he became the highest points scorer for the Scarlets since the region was set up in 2003, overtaking Stephen Jones on the all-time list. Case for the defenceGeorge Ford often earns praise for his attacking prowess, but it was his try-saving – even match-saving – tackle which really caught the eye in Sunday’s win for Bath in Toulouse.Trailing 25-18 with 53 minutes gone, blindside Yannick Nyanga was charging for the line and if he had scored at that point, the tide might just have turned in Toulouse’s favour. However, Ford hauled the bigger man to the floor and then cleverly rolled him over to prevent him touching the ball down, as players from both teams piled in. Strength, courage and intelligence all combined in an excellent piece of play. Force of nature: Billy Vunipola leaves Dave Foley in his wake during Saracens’ win over MunsterLeading from the frontJames Haskell put in a real captain’s performance in Wasps’ 23-3 Champions Cup win over Harlequins at The Stoop. He made 25 of their 182 tackles, won four turnovers and made ground with six carries. His team-mate Ashley Johnson took to Twitter to call Haskell’s contribution “immense” and even their opponents were full of praise, with Joe Marler saying Man of the Match Haskell was “outstanding”.Another England back row also put in a cracking performance at the right time, with the Six Nations on the horizon. Billy Vunipola galloped 67 metres in 17 carries and made 14 tackles as Saracens beat Munster 33-10, prompting coach Mark McCall to describe him as “a force of nature in attack and defence”. Dragons roaringWales are guaranteed at least one quarter-finalist in the European Rugby Challenge Cup after Newport-Gwent Dragons won 40-29 at Newcastle, thanks partly to a virtuoso performance from wing Hallam Amos.He scored two tries, capitalising on a great break from Tyler Morgan for his first and crossing again in the second half when the Falcons were threatening a comeback. He made 161 metres in 15 carries and put Rynard Landman for his try with a fabulous break from his own half and a deft offload.At the double: Hallam Amos scores the first of his two tries for the Dragons Hat-trick heroesWing Richard Smith grabbed a hat-trick of tries for Cardiff Blues as they beat Rovigo 104-12 in the Challenge Cup. The Blues ran in eight tries in each half to become the eighth team in European cup rugby history to score a century of points.DTH van der Merwe was another hat-trick hero, helping Glasgow beat Montpellier 21-10 at home, while Steffon Armitage crossed the line three times for Toulon in their 60-22 thrashing of Ulster. The SinnersA Huget mistakeToulouse wing Yoann Huget was all over social media on Sunday evening after trying to get Horacio Agulla into trouble during their Champions Cup clash with Bath.Huget fell to the floor clutching his face after Agulla had given him no more than a gentle shove on the shoulder. Unsurprisingly, the match officials could find no evidence of foul play on video and it would be great to see Huget cited for simulation.Tarnished talent: Yoann Huget doesn’t need to resort to diving English clubs had the most to celebrate after a terrific weekend of European Champions Cup rugby, as four of the five Aviva Premiership sides who were playing non-English opponents won. For once the French managed just three wins out of six. Welsh hopes in the Champions Cup have been dashed, Glasgow’s campaign is hanging by a thread and only Leinster are carrying Irish chances with one round of pool matches to go. Who were the stars and the villains as this weekend’s drama unfolded?The SaintsJoseph and the Amazing Technicolor TalentIf Jonathan Joseph does not feature in Stuart Lancaster’s England squad for the Six Nations, which is named on Wednesday, the gentlefolk of Bath might just march on Twickenham in disgust after his utterly brilliant performance in Bath’s astonishing 35-18 European Champions Cup win at Toulouse.He scored one of their four tries, finishing off some great work from George Ford, Kyle Eastmond and Matt Banahan, but there was so much more to his game than that, as his Man of the Match award goes to show.The centre made 90 metres in attack and was Bath’s joint top-tackler with seven. And, with the game in the balance at 25-18 to Bath in the final ten minutes, Joseph made a fantastic break from his own half, beating the defence with a mixture of fancy footwork and pace, and after cutting across to wrong-foot the cover, he passed to Ross Batty, who put Francois Louw over for the decisive and bonus-point-clinching try. Bowing out in styleEngland Women’s star Maggie Alphonsi helped Saracens Women win the English Premiership title on Sunday in her last match before retiring. Having won the World Cup and the Premiership in one season, Alphonsi is now off to make a bid to represent Great Britain at the Rio Olympics as a shot-putter. Who is going to bet against her succeeding? Skipper’s shockerFemi-CZ Rugby Rovigo have been outclassed throughout the pool stages of the Challenge Cup, but they slumped to a new low this weekend, losing 104-12 to Cardiff Blues.Far from leading from the front, their captain Jean-Francois Montauriol missed seven of the 47 tackles Rovigo let slip as a team. Munster miseryMunster went to Saracens needing a win to keep alive their hopes of a place in the Champions Cup quarter-final but put in an awful performance and lost 33-10.“It was disappointing that we didn’t fire a shot in such an important game with the tournament on the line,” said their own head coach, Anthony Foley.It is only the second time in 17 seasons that Munster have not reached the quarter‑finals. They were tactically naïve, came off second best at the breakdown, made one real comedy error at a lineout and even the usually super-solid Paul O’Connell was among the players throwing loose passes and dropping the ball.

first_imgFriday Feb 19, 2010 Samoa’s victorious USA Sevens campaign If you haven’t yet seen what happened at the inaugural Las Vegas Sevens tournament in the USA, here’s a clip that features the best of the winners, Samoa, in action throughout the weekend.Beating New Zealand emphatically in the final, the 33-12 win in front of a whole host of fans made up for their loss a week prior, against Fiji in Wellington.They’ve now also moved up into second place on the IRB Sevens World Series standings, ahead of Fiji but still behind New Zealand, who are on the top of the table.Star of the tournament Mikaele Pesamino scored a hat trick in the final, following on from scoring an incredible eight tries on day one, including a hat trick against Scotland and five against Chile, taking him to 11 tries for the two day tournament.With his 11 tries, Pesamino surpassed countryman Uale Mai as Samoa’s all time leading try scorer on the Sevens circuit. He is now fourth on the all time list at 123, behind Fabian Juries who is on 173, Ben Gollings on 193, and Santiago Gomez Cora who tops the list at 227.You can see Samoa’s run to the final in this video, as well as the final itself.

Some of the hailstones were the size of golf balls.Faculty, students and, in some cases, students’ parents received texts and phone calls alerting them to the weather situation.“The system was activated by the TCU police department at the request of our Emergency Management and Business Continuity Director,” said Kathryn Cavins-Tull, the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs.The decision was made after contacting both the National Weather Service and the emergency center in Fort Worth, Cavins-Tull said.A Snapchat image by Tommy Bruhn, a TCU environmental science major.

Turpin refused to talk to officers at the scene, police said.Turpin was released from TCU’s football team on Tuesday after reports that he was arrested March 15 in Las Cruces, New Mexico and charged with battery of a household member, criminal damage to a household property under $1,000 and interference with communications, according to the arrest affidavit.Turpin pleaded not guilty to battery charges and household property damage.

Sheriff’s Captain Reed Talks Coffee, Cameras and ‘Broken Windows’

first_img Subscribe Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Sheriff’s Captain Christopher Reed of the Altadena Station meets with local residents.As with many coffee klatches, the hottest topic at the Coffee Gallery in Altadena last night was movies. But not favorite flicks or favorite stars. It was neighbors hosting film shoots, and film companies taking over neighborhoods.The Altadena Sheriff’s Station and Captain Christopher Reed held a “Coffee with the Captain” meeting last night and while movies took over a lot of the conversation, Captain Reed and four deputies handled subjects as varied as new deployments, horse and foot patrols and policing policy.A number of residents spoke out against both film companies and local homeowners being good neighbors and honoring the specifics of film permits by the LA Film Office. Reed assured the neighbors that local sheriff’s deputies are aware of the pitfalls of neighborhood shooting, but also emphasized that in a busy filming community like Altadena, it’s the responsibility of film companies to enforce matters like parking violations and the like.Captain Reed also announced a new deployment strategy in the area with regard to deputies. As he explained, the department formerly deployed three two-person teams on the night and swing shifts. Now, there is one two-person car and four one-person cars, putting a total of five cars out on the street.Speaking of cars, the Altadena Sheriff’s Station also deploys two Ford Explorers as part of the patrol fleet (through a grant from Supervisor Mike Antonovich) that feature 360-degree license plate readers, allowing the vehicles to automatically view, read and enter every license plate of every car they pass on the road.“Big Brother is definitely here,” Captain Reed joked.Reed also discussed the idea of “Broken Window” policing, which is reacting to every small violation, in order to prevent more serious violations. Former LAPD Chief Bill Bratton was a strong proponent of this type of law enforcement.“But,” said Captain Reed, “Ever since Ferguson and Baltimore, a lot of cops have decided they’re going to shut it down, it’s something called ‘de-policing,’ which I had never heard of. and which is something Sheriff (Jim) McDonnell does not favor, obviously.“So, even though our crime is down,” he continued, “believe it or not our arrests are up, and to be honest with you, they are for more minor offenses. That term “de-policing is something I don’t want to see here. I tell our officers, ‘Be the kind of officer you want patrolling your neighborhood when your wife, parents or husband is home alone.’”“We don’t want to go overboard, but if you’re a known gang member, and your tail light is out, my deputies are going to talk to you.”In addition, the Sheriff’s Station recently began bike and foot patrols on Lake and Lincoln Avenues, and said Reed, those will be continued at least once a month. The Sheriff’s office also utilizes a mounted horse patrol when necessary.Finally, asked about the things that community members could do to make Sheriff’s deputies jobs easier, the officers all agreed, “Call right away.”“Don’t wait until the suspicious person you’re watching walks out of a house with a TV set,” said Captain Reed. 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

That goes toward the approximately $14.1 billion damage overall to property and crops caused by 5,710 tornadoes hitting every state except Alaska, including Washington, D.C. In each of Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, and Illinois, twisters wreaking more than $1 billion in damages.But the frequency of hits did not necessarily dictate the distribution of funds.FEMA’s records show that just two states received nearly 50% of the agency’s disaster relief funds during this period, with unlikely Massachusetts leading the way, according to the report.The big takeaway for homeowners is this: Value Penguin data journalist Andrew Hurst says that “while the federal government’s efforts to repair tornado damage pose a multibillion-dollar financial commitment, data from insurers don’t indicate that affected property owners will face huge premium increases if a storm destroys their homes.”In the 13 states that are most prone to tornadoes, homeowners generally don’t face punitive increases to their premiums after a catastrophic loss. Insurance rates increased by an average of 8% following a total loss, according to the report.In other words, rate information shows an average per-year increase of only $180 in the states most likely to experience the greatest number of tornadoes.He adds that, based on the findings, FEMA Funding is not an adequate system to rely upon in case of a natural disaster.”If you are preparing for the upcoming Tornado season, double-check your home insurance coverage—and make sure your insurance will allow you to recover completely after a storm,” Hurst advises.”While most homeowners can be assured that their rates won’t rise precipitously after a tornado, if not adequately insured, [homeowners] may face hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage [they] may need to pay out of pocket.”To view his full report, visit: Subscribelast_img read more
