How I’d invest £20k for a passive income in retirement

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. G A Chester has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended GlaxoSmithKline and Unilever. The Motley Fool UK has recommended HSBC Holdings, ITV, and Tesco. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. In retirement, I think ideally you should have your essential costs — plus whatever discretionary lifestyle expenditure you feel is the minimum for contentment — covered by reliable income. This would include the State Pension, and any other pension or guaranteed source of income.I think it’s also prudent to keep a rainy day cash fund in an instant or easy-access account for emergencies.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…If you have these things in place, and still have surplus cash — say £20,000 — the question is what to do with it. In this article, I’ll explain why I’d opt for a Stocks and Shares ISA over a Cash ISA and tell you about the sort of stocks I’d invest in.Big differenceThe return on cash is pitiful at the moment. And this is unlikely to change any time soon. Interest rates are expected to remain low for the foreseeable future. The best easy-access Cash ISA I can find pays just 1.3%. And you don’t get much better on a five-year, fixed-rate job at 1.7%.So the most annual income you can earn on your surplus £20k is a mere £340. It’s something. But that’s about all that can be said of it. By contrast, there are currently numerous companies on the stock market offering dividend yields of 5% or more. A 5% yield on your £20k equates to £1,000. That’s more like it.And, of course, if we talk about multiples of £20k, the difference between the Cash ISA and Stocks & Shares ISA becomes even greater. For example, with £100k, the interest on cash would be £1,700 versus £5,000 for the stocks and shares holder.DividendsDividends from companies aren’t guaranteed. However, many have explicit policies of aiming to increase the payout each year, and many succeed in doing so. From time to time, some have to rebase their dividend to a lower level. For example, if they go through a period of difficult trading, and are making lower profits.Generally, though, I think a portfolio of handpicked dividend stocks is well capable of providing an overall growing passive income, even if there come to be some rebasers in it. Of course, the fewer of these you have the better. This is where stock selection comes in.Stocks portfolioI think a portfolio of between 10 and 20 stocks is probably ideal. And with a Stocks and Shares ISA of £20k, the dealing costs on buying up to 20 stocks are reasonable.I’d stick largely to blue-chip FTSE 100 companies, and diversify across different industries. I’d want a good core of businesses whose earnings tend to be relatively resilient through the economic cycle (even if some have sub-5% yields).These would include the likes of British American Tobacco (current yield 7.1%), defence specialist BAE Systems (4.1%), big pharma firm GlaxoSmithKline (5%), utilities National Grid (4.8%) and SSE (5%), supermarket Tesco(4%), and consumer goods group Unilever (3.5%).To these I’d add some of the heavyweight companies in more cyclical sectors, such as HSBC (8.1%), ITV (8%), and Shell (8.8%). The average yield of this set of 10 companies is 5.8%.Final wordAs I say, dividends aren’t guaranteed. Over a retirement period of maybe 20 years, there’ll almost certainly be some rebasing. However, I think such a stocks portfolio has every chance of providing a high passive income that knocks spots off interest on cash.Just ignore the fluctuations in the capital value of the portfolio, and enjoy the juicy dividends!

£5k to invest? I think the RBS share price could double

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img The market has soured on the RBS (LSE: RBS) share price in 2020. Shares in the lender have fallen around 54% year-to-date.It’s easy to see why investors have decided to dump their holdings of the bank over the past few weeks.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…The coronavirus crisis has had a significant impact on the UK economy and, as one of the country’s largest lenders, RBS is preparing for a substantial increase in loan losses as a result.Management earmarked £802m to deal with an expected increase in defaults in the first quarter of the year, an increase of nearly 840% year-on-year. As a result, net profit for the quarter tumbled 59% to £288m.Against this backdrop, the RBS share price may seem like a value trap. However, the company could offer a wide margin of safety at the current time. As such, it may be an attractive long-term investment.RBS share price: undervaluedAs well as the potential for increased loan losses as a result of the pandemic, RBS is also having to deal with low interest rates. In the first quarter, overall revenues declined 1.6%. Revenues may continue to stagnate if the Bank of England maintains its key rate at the lowest level in recent memory.But despite these pressures, the RBS share price appears to offer less risk than many of its sector peers. The bank has relatively limited exposure to credit card lending, and management has been trying to improve lending standards in recent years.What’s more, after more than a decade of rebuilding after the financial crisis, RBS’s balance sheet is relatively strong. So, it should be able to handle the jump in loan losses.Nevertheless, despite these sector-leading qualities, the RBS share price is trading at a sector low. Shares in the lender are dealing at a price-to-book (P/B) value of 0.3. That’s compared to the financial services sector average of 0.5. That may suggest that the RBS share price offers a wide margin of safety at current levels.DiversificationOf course, the bank’s growth may remain under pressure for some time. The coronavirus crisis is still rumbling on, and we do not yet know how significant the impact will be on the UK economy. It could be several years before economic growth returns to the level seen before the crisis.However, the 54% decline in the RBS share price highlights that investor sentiment is fragile. As the economic fallout of the pandemic becomes clear, this could persist in the short run, but the valuation of the RBS share price could provide long-term investors with the opportunity to buy a high-quality business while it offers a wide margin of safety.The best way to limit the risk of this investment going wrong, while being able to partake in any potential upside could be to own the stock as part of a diversified portfolio of shares. Owning companies in different industries and geographies is always a sensible investment strategy, but it could be even more critical in the current environment.

Should I buy Tirupati Graphite shares?

first_img Enter Your Email Address Should I buy Tirupati Graphite shares? Kirsteen Mackay | Tuesday, 15th June, 2021 | More on: LSEG RR TGR 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. Tirupati Graphite (LSE:TGR) is a green economy business with potential upside. It’s a flake graphite company manufacturing speciality graphite and graphene. And Tirupati has recently developed a ground-breaking graphene-aluminium (Al-Gr) composite. This could be a game-changer in replacing copper in advancing technology.A revolutionary productTirupati Graphite mines and processes natural flake graphite in Madagascar and conducts hi-tech graphite processing in India. Its operation in India is focusing on manufacturing zero-chemical graphene. Best of all, Al-Gr Composite is a scalable solution that could revolutionise manufacturing.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…The company already makes money mining for graphite in Madagascar, but this new Al-Gr Composite invention has investors really excited.That’s because Tirupati has reportedly been in talks with FTSE 100 company Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR). Tirupati’s Al-Gr Composite could replace the copper in thermal, power, and propulsion systems, ensuring lighter-weight aircraft. Less weight leads to increased fuel efficiency, which saves the company money. So, it could potentially appeal to many aircraft manufacturers.Reducing weight in tech is a common goal, and if workable, this Al-Gr Composite could find demand coming from many industries desperate to reduce their carbon footprint. For instance, electric vehicles, aerospace, space, shipping, and satellite technologies. In fact, pretty much anything that uses copper wires and cables in motors.The Al-Gr Composite is also more efficient at increasing conductivity, both thermal and electrical. Therefore, it can be used in heat exchangers, heat sinks, and even solar water heaters.In fact, Shishir Poddar, CEO of Tirupati Graphite, referenced a recent McKinsey report stating graphene can make batteries and solar cells significantly more efficient.Rising share priceTirupati Graphite launched on the London Stock Exchange via IPO in December. Since then, its share price has risen 152%. It now has a £113m market cap. However, there’s no doubt this share carries risk. It’s new to the public markets, it operates in emerging market jurisdictions, and it’s making a product that’s yet to prove itself.Nevertheless, the company has high hopes with its sights set on increasing its Madagascan capacity to 30,000 tpa by Q1 2022, up from 3,000 tpa at IPO.The Tirupati share price has already risen sharply in the past week, so it may be in for extreme volatility in the weeks ahead. However, as a speculative investment, I’m tempted to get on board and add Tirupati Graphite shares to my Stocks and Shares ISA. I think anything offering a clear solution in the shift to a green economy shows massive potential and makes for an attractive investment opportunity.Tirupati in talks with Rolls-RoyceAnother key question now is: does this news make Rolls-Royce any more attractive as a long-term investment? Rolls-Royce has racked up an eye-watering level of debt since the pandemic hit. Its market cap is approaching £9bn while its debt is almost £7.5bn. Therefore, I think any way it can find to reduce costs will be warmly welcomed.The Rolls-Royce share price has been extremely volatile, and its future uncertain. That still stands, although its outlook very much depends on economies reopening and flights resuming.I think Rolls-Royce will survive, and it has been streamlining in recent months. If it can stay on target to reduce costs and resume generating revenue, its share price could soar again. As a result, I’m tempted to gradually buy shares in Rolls-Royce with a long time horizon in mind. Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Easter falls on a Sunday this Year?

Allow God to work through us, and leave it to God to continue speaking to the world.And believe me, He will never be forgotten.Jesus spent a little over 30 years on earth about 2000 years ago, yet he is still the most talked about person in history. Even nature itself remembers his sacrifice. Every spring and Easter, it honors His resurrection with rebirth and renewal of its own.Lilies appear from the ground as if by magic. One day it’s an underground and forgotten bulb, the next day, it’s the featured flower in the garden. In New Smyrna Beach, white moths suddenly appear by the thousands on or around Easter every year.

The earth is reborn.And Jesus is remembered. Every Easter God rewrites Genesis 1.Easter is a celebration of the greatest event in human history. There should be Easter baskets, Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, fireworks, parties; games and anything else people want to celebrate with.If the gospels are a true account of the manner in which Jesus walked the earth, then my guess is he would enjoy his time with Michelle and her children more than he would the reverent Pastor latte. He would want to attend the parties, eat, drink and spend time with friends no matter where they are in their journey.In honor of Jesus and his incredible sacrifice, let’s open our doors and love, serve and bless the visitors to our churches this Easter.

center_img OpinionBy Reggie ConnellAbout 15 years ago I worked at a sales office with about 50 employees. They were good people, mostly Christians, but not too many churchgoers among them.I remember a sales associate named Michelle. She was a young mom with two kids. It was about a week from Easter, and she was discussing her children’s holiday plans.“They have the entire week off, and then they go back to school the following Monday,” I recall her saying. “So I guess that means Easter falls on a Sunday this year.”I thought she was joking, but she wasn’t.Michelle was a good mother, and a good person, but religion was not on her radar. She was not anti-Christian or anti-anything for that matter… just a single mom focused on her kids. She talked about Easter egg hunts, Easter baskets and the parties she was invited to on Easter Sunday.Michelle is someone you would want to visit your church, but how would she be treated if she did? Would she be loved, served and blessed? Or would she be judged, preached-at and evangelized?A few days ago I was at a coffee shop with a few other Christian friends; mostly members of my church.A retired pastor that some in the group knew walked past. One of us said “hello” to him and he kind of frowned but said hello back. Then he opened the door about halfway and in a stoic tone said this…“It’s not about chickens and it’s not about bunny rabbits, it’s about the Lord Jesus Christ sacrificing his life for us.”Then he went inside and ordered a mocha latte.My first thought was to repeat Michelle’s infamous question to the pastor… “Does Easter fall on a Sunday this year?” Instead I pondered the contrasting comments of Michelle and Pastor latte. Then I wondered how welcome she would feel if the first contact with a Jesus follower was to say those preachy words? Would she nod in stunned agreement and look for the nearest exit? Would her children be uncomfortable after being told their Easter basket full of candy and chocolate eggs was disrespectful to Jesus?

Rugby world supports Pacific Island boycott of World Cup

first_imgFriday Mar 1, 2019 Rugby world supports Pacific Island boycott of World Cup In light of the new proposal by World Rugby to create a new World League at the expense of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, a number of current and former players have been very vocal about the scheme.ADVERTISEMENTFormer Samoa internationals Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu and Dan Leo were particularly vociferous, calling for a boycott of the World Cup this year by the Pacific Island teams.This idea has gained a lot of traction, with the players set to vote on whether or not they will play in this year’s showcase in Japan.There seems to be an immeasurable number of fans that are in support of this boycott on social media, as there has been universal disgust at the plans to completely neglect countries that contribute a lot to international rugby.Fans from all over the world massively outnumber any that do not support the boycott, as the world of rugby has seemed to rally behind the Pacific nations.Since yesterday, more players have taken to Twitter to show their disagreement with this new idea of World Rugby’s.ADVERTISEMENTRacing 92 and Samoa prop Census Johnston is in favour of the boycott, calling for a “fight for change”.Fellow internationals have also vented their spleen, with Fijian winger Nemani Nadolo saying “R.I.P Pacific Island Rugby” if this plan is to go through.La Rochelle and All Blacks flanker Victor Vito has also shown his fierce opposition to this proposal, saying World Rugby has no interest in Tier Two nations.ADVERTISEMENTWhile the Pacific Islands do not have the wealth that other nations like Japan and the USA (who are part of the 12-team league) do, as Nadolo said, freezing them out of this competition will completely kill off international rugby in that part of the world.Already there are a number of players from those nations playing in Europe domestically and internationally due to the financial incentive; this will only exacerbate that issue.READ MORE: Sexton, Farrell and more slam proposed World Rugby international competition as being ‘out of touch’ Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The conversion of an industrial shed to a single family home in midtown Toronto makes a case for a strategic approach to urban sustainability and revitalization, additional density in the City’s laneways, and smaller footprint living.Beginning its life as a blacksmith’s shop serving the railway in the early 1880s, the original building at No. 40R remained in industrial service for over 120 years – fi rst as a smithy, then a horse shed, and most recently as a sculptor’s studio. This succession of use was registered in the shed’s quilted skin of rusted steel panels, insul-brick, barn-board and plywood. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingThe current owners, interested in smaller footprint living, bought the shed to convert it to a single family home. The strategy was to selectively rebuild it to provide the amenities of ‘home’ – outdoor space, daylighting, and well configured living space – while retaining as much of its existing character as possible. The conversion was an exercise in the careful calibration of space in zero-tolerance conditions. The 18ft x 40ft lot is reduced at grade to 10ft x 38ft by a right of way; the shed sits on the property line on the two remaining sides. As a result there was no usable outdoor space at grade, and zoning wouldn’t allow for any additional openings in the exterior walls. Save this picture!The design strategy revolved around drawing additional light, air and views from above. A light shaft topped by skylights runs the length of the west wall and brings light to the ground and second fl oors; operable vents in the sky-light create the stack effect that passively ventilates the house. From the second fl oor courtyard, with its primary view to the sky, there is a stair up to a roof garden and terrace; rainwater from the roof is collected in a cistern below. The building’s existing rusted steel cladding was removed, brake-formed with a fl at-lock seam, and re-installed as the primary building skin. Flat black-painted knotty cedar and marine grade plywood clads the remainder of the building. Existing structural members were retained where possible, and an existing sliding steel door was salvaged for reuse.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessDubai Tall Emblem Structure / Francois Blanciak ArchitectArticlesHouse re-Growth Competition Winners AnnouncedArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/22045/40_r-laneway-house-superkul-inc Clipboard CopyHouses•Toronto, Canada Houses 40_R Laneway House / superkül incSave this projectSave40_R Laneway House / superkül inc ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/22045/40_r-laneway-house-superkul-inc Clipboardcenter_img Save this picture!+ 9 Share Architects: Superkül inc Area Area of this architecture project 2008 Canada Area:  75 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” Projectslast_img read more

Price, speed and quality are always the key elements to a design project. Whether it be a remodel or a ground up project, we are always striving for the perfect equilibrium. Here, we started with an existing ranch style house in the Encino Hills and within 6 months we completed design, permitting and construction. The end result is what feels like a brand new house, all while staying within our client’s budget. Save this picture!Courtesy of Dan BrunnThe house now has open plan, revolving around an existing fireplace chimney. Most of the partition walls have been removed thus allowing for free flow, light and air circulation. With the free plan, one could open the multi pivot glass wall on the den side of the house and the sliding windows on the living room side and enjoy a refreshing breeze, without the need to run the air-conditioning unit in the summer months. Save this picture!Courtesy of Dan BrunnSince we believe that the kitchen is the soul and heart of a house, we have incorporated it onto the length of the house, creating a “storage wall”, spanning from the living room all the way to the dining room. At each portion of the house, the proportions and accommodations change to fit the space, while maintaing a homogenous look, the unit ties the space together and gives an appearance of grandeur. The expansive kitchen island is also a key element, anchored to the chimney, always accessible for preparation and for entertaining. Save this picture!Courtesy of Dan BrunnIn addition to the free flow of the house, we have also spent quite a bit of time in material and product research. To keep within the budget and speed, we looked into alternative means to achieve the design goals we always strive for. Save this picture!Courtesy of Dan BrunnThis meant spending a lot of time with the contractor, fabricators and suppliers to come up with creative solutions. Specifically, we used all new window & door systems, stone and wood coverings and incorporated off the shelf cabinetry, all to create a seamless, fresh and inviting design.Save this picture!Courtesy of Dan BrunnProject gallerySee allShow lessBalloon House Takes FlightArticlesDutch House / Rem KoolhaasArticles Sharelast_img read more
