The State Pension will rise to 67 this decade. I’d buy FTSE 100 stocks now to retire early

first_img This decade is expected to see the State Pension age rise to 67. This is set to occur between 2026 and 2028, and means that people are having to work for longer to receive their retirement income. This means that retiring early may become a more challenging goal.However, by investing in FTSE 100 shares today, you may be able to improve your chances of beating the rising State Pension age. The index offers long-term growth potential that could provide a nest egg that delivers a passive income in older age. Even though it made strong gains in 2019, there appear to be numerous buying opportunities available at the present time.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…Long-term focusInvesting in the FTSE 100 is highly unlikely to produce a large nest egg in the short run. However, the index’s high-single-digit annual returns suggest that, over time, compounding can lead to a surprisingly big fund that boosts your retirement prospects.For example, investing £250 per month in large-cap shares at an annual return of 9% could lead to a nest egg of over £400,000 in a 30-year time period. A 9% annual rate of return could be more achievable than many investors realise, since the FTSE 100 has delivered that level of total return on an annual basis since its inception in 1984.Certainly, in the short run, there are likely to be challenges ahead for the index. However, the index has been able to grow at a fast pace throughout its history, despite facing major difficulties such as the global financial crisis, tech bubble and 1987 crash along the way. Therefore, the risks facing the index, such as geopolitical uncertainty in the Middle East, a global trade war and Brexit, may not necessarily hold back its performance in the coming years.Buying opportunitiesBuying FTSE 100 shares today is a relatively simple process. Tax-efficient accounts such as Stocks and Shares ISAs are available online and take just a matter of minutes to open. Furthermore, with the cost of buying shares having fallen in recent decades, it is now much easier and cheaper to diversify. This could not only help to reduce your overall risk, it may enable you to access fast-growing industries in a wider range of geographies. In doing so you may be able to improve your overall returns.While the index recorded a total return in excess of 16% in 2019, it continues to offer good value for money. Sectors such as industrials and retail are priced favourably, while the growth potential of sectors such as healthcare and defence appear to be high. As such, there could be numerous opportunities for you to build a portfolio that offers long-term growth potential at a reasonable price. This could enable you to beat the rising State Pension age and retire early.

This super stock is owned by Cathie Wood, Terry Smith, and Nick Train. I’d buy it today

first_imgRevenue to grow about 20% PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) is a stock that is owned by a number of top fund managers. Not only is it owned by ARK’s Cathie Wood – who is one of the most popular portfolio managers on the planet right now – but it’s also owned by Terry Smith and Nick Train – two of the UK’s top stock pickers.Recently, PayPal shares have experienced a pullback. After rising above $300 in mid-February, they have pulled back to around $245. I think this pullback has created a nice entry point. Here’s a look at a few reasons I’d buy PayPal stock today.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…PayPal stock: strong Q1 resultsPayPal’s recent first-quarter results show that the digital payments company is growing at a rapid rate at present.For the quarter, Total Payment Volume (TPV) came in at $285bn, up 50% year-on-year, while revenue for the period was up 31% year-on-year to $6.03bn. Non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) were up 84% to $1.22. During the quarter, the company added 14.5m accounts, taking its total active accounts to 392m.On the back of this strong performance, the group raised its guidance for the full year. For 2021, it now expects: This level of growth is certainly impressive.Source: SiftedLong-term growth potentialLooking beyond 2021, I expect PayPal to continue growing at a strong rate. One driver will be e-commerce, which is set to grow significantly over the next decade. Here, the payments company plays a key role in the industry. When online retailers offer PayPal as a payment option, sale completion rates tend to be much higher.Another growth driver will be the shift away from cash towards digital wallets and electronic payments. A recent study from Juniper Research found that total spend through digital wallets will exceed $10trn in 2025, up from $5.5trn in 2020. This structural shift in payments should benefit PayPal.RisksThere are risks to the investment case, of course. One is in relation to competition. In the FinTech space, competition is intense. Competitors such as Visa, Square, Wise, and Revolut could potentially steal market share. PayPal will need to continue to innovate to stay ahead of the curve.Another risk is that eBay has recently dropped PayPal as its main payments provider. This is likely to impact revenues in the short term.Finally, there’s the valuation. Even after the recent share price pullback, PayPal shares are not cheap. Currently, the stock trades on a forward-looking price-to-sales ratio of about 11.2 and a forward-looking price-to-earnings ratio of about 52. These are high valuations, which add risk.I’d buy this Cathie Wood-owned stockOverall, however, I see a lot of appeal in PayPal shares. At the current share price, I’m a buyer of the stock.

The Top 5 Crazy Cards of All Time – Rugby HQ

first_imgFriday Sep 20, 2013 The Top 5 Crazy Cards of All Time – Rugby HQ Following the controversial dismissal of Bismarck Du Plessis in the Rugby Championship, and the admission by the IRB that referee Romain Poite got it wrong, the Rugby HQ guys looked into the archives to find similar mind-boggling referee calls. It goes without saying that without referees, we wouldn’t have the great game. Rugby is also one of the few high profile sports where we treat them with respect, and rarely question their judgement.Having said that, with excellent TV broadcasts and analysis these days, we’re able to scrutinise every call from the comfort of our La-Z-Boys, and occasionlaly, they do produce some shockers.Technology is not only the reason we feel we’re able to accurately criticise, but it’s also one of the things that is now available to them, so there really shouldn’t be any big calls gone wrong.Poite’s big call came a week after the decision was made to allow referees in the Rugby Championship to ask for replays of foul play to be put up on the big screen in the stadium.That is a new innovation though and in recent years, while there was still the ability to speak to the touch judges and use common sense, we’ve seen a few howlers.Sean Maloney compiled a list of some of the worst in recent memory with their latest Top 5 list.View our Top 5 archive, and all the incidents mentioned in the video in the Related Posts belowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Top 5 compilations Related Articles 240 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 Biggest Hits of the Year 242 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 BLOOPERS of the Year! 244 WEEKS AGO Powerful Top 5 ‘Tongan Thor’ moments From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Thousands say ‘Stop police terror!’

first_imgThousands rallied and marched in New York City from near Washington Square Park uptown on Sixth Avenue to Bryant Park on Oct. 24 in an action called “Rise Up October” with the goal to “Stop Police Terror and Murder.”  Many family members of people killed by police spoke and were at the front of the march, which included many people of color and young people directing the action. “Stop Mass Incarceration” called the march, which attracted the participation of well-known personalities like Dr. Cornel West and film director Quentin Tarantino.

Indiana Weather Forecast 2/17/2015

first_imgA fairly benign finish to the work week is underway with very little significant precipitation through early Saturday. However, the pattern has not really changed from what we wrote 24 hours ago…we will see more blasts of arctic air, and a weekend weather system that looks spectacular. By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 17, 2015 SHARE The extended period has a strong low pushing out of the central plains over the Corn Belt for the 28th and 1st which can bring rain and snow to the region. Liquid equivalents look to be in the third to three quarters of an inch range. Then, the first couple of days of march bringing a slight warm up…just enough to play with us…followed by a massive push of polar air again. We also would look for a significant system to come out of the southern plains on the edge of that cold air for the 4th-5th as well.BEYOND INDIANA: Facebook Twitter OTHER AREAS OF NOTE: Not much to say here other than to point to the latest map for temps early Friday morning…morning lows still pushing toward freezing down to Tampa…but not quite there yet. CATTLE WeatherColder than normal temps, but otherwise, not a lot of major news making weather items for Cattle. HOG Weather Snow over the OH valley will provide for some transportation issues the next day or two. If the major system hits the eastern Corn Belt as advertized this weekend, we can say ditto for early next week over most of IN and OH. Our next big-time precipitation maker is still on track for the weekend. As we brought up yesterday, we have/had a concern about tracking the low with this system farther north. The latest European model has done that. This by no means is locked in… and in fact we expect a move of the low back south in subsequent runs…but this also means we are definitely in the line of fire from later Saturday through Sunday. We may see a bit of a warmer air push ahead of the system, so we may have our first wave come as rain or rain mixing with snow, but the system is designed to have a batch of moderate to heavy snow with it as well. Right now, we see total moisture potential from the storm at half to 1 inch combined…and it could lead to decent or even heavy snow accumulations across the heart of the state as well. We will wait to put out our official snow totals forecast until late Thursday or Friday, but we are posting some maps here of what some of the computers are saying. It should be a wild ride. Following that system, another cold blast hits. Temps below normal to start next week, and those cold temps may persist all week as arctic high pressure settles in over IN and OH for several days. However, high pressure also means we should be mostly dry though the week next week. Previous articleField Trials Say 32,000 Corn Seeding Rate is BestNext articleMorning Outlook Hoosier Ag Todaycenter_img Indiana Weather Forecast 2/17/2015 CORN WeatherA cold front moving across Argentina in the next couple of days looks much stronger and should bring excellent rains to all corn growing regions. We see this front kicking off later this afternoon and going through Thursday morning. Rain totals represented by the map at right are in the half to 2” range with coverage at nearly 95% of argentine corn region. High pressure settles in for the end of the week through Tuesday of next week. Another front comes together bringing up to 1 inch of rain for next Wednesday and Thursday. Temps will be cooler than normal under the high pressure dome to this weekend and early next week, and should promote excellent growing conditions. Plenty of moisture in over Brazil for this week and next. This may be looked at as a possible hindrance to second crop corn planting, which stood at only 13% done last week. Rains the rest of this week and through next Thursday can be range from an inch on the low end up to 5 or 6 inches. The heaviest rains are shifting inland this week and next over Matto Grosso do Sul. US Corn Belt locations remain cold through the end of the month and the active precipitation pattern continues as well. However, we are spacing out the precipitation hits just a bit, with 5-6 days in between what just hit and our next event (this weekend). The hits come a little faster late next week into early March. Right now, we see any warmth the models try and build in over the region as just a head fake, with overall below normal temps holding into early March. SOYBEAN WeatherSoybean areas may run into some harvest delays over the next 10 days, as nearly daily moisture hits over the soybean belt. This also will affect 2nd crop corn planting (see above). Rain totals will be up to 5 inches, and may exceed that over the western half of Matto Grosso do Sul. However, we will point out that this pattern is really not too different from normal…as the rains usually make life a little interesting around soy harvest time. So…the affect of the rain and the coverage areas remain to be seen. We at least need to expect some talk of delays. WHEAT Weather Overall temps in HRW areas will be below normal. However, western parts of the central plains will see a bump in temps for wed-Friday of this week. Then, several more pushes of cold air come. Precipitation was nice over parts of KS and OK yesterday. The aforementioned warming may allow some of that moisture to be used a bit sooner. However, in general, we see our next precipitation maker holding off until late this week, and even then missing most of HRW country. Going forward, the moisture looks the best All SRW areas now have some snow cover, thanks to the Sunday night and Monday snow event over areas from I-70 southward. This will be nice as well below normal temps will dominate discussions through next week. Moderate to heavy rains/snows are likely again this weekend, and toward the end of next week.  Draw a line from the north short of the Black Sea across into central Kazakhstan. South of that line, we can see some moisture, mostly from half an inch up to 1.25” over the next 10 days combined. North of that line…a few hundredths if you are lucky. Then better moisture happens farther north…outside of the key grain producing regions. This leaves a big dry hole over a large part of production acreage. Most of this dry area will be below normal on temps through this week, but transitions to above normal levels by the middle of next week. SHARE Home News Feed Indiana Weather Forecast 2/17/2015 Facebook Twitter Arctic high pressure moves in over the state today and tomorrow, bringing in our next blast of arctic air. Temps the next couple of nights will be as cold or colder than what we saw come in over the weekend. We do see a strong northerly fetch come down the great lakes, and although we do not see a massive amount of available moisture, with the winds and the cold air, don’t rule out some snow flakes over parts of the state tomorrow. However, this is mostly a cold air story over the next few days.last_img read more

Crucial day in Philadelphia court for Mumia Abu-Jamal and rule of law

first_img NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say November 9, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Crucial day in Philadelphia court for Mumia Abu-Jamal and rule of law United StatesAmericas Reporters Without Borders regrets that Bryan, who had represented Abu-Jamal in recent years, resigned as his defence lawyer a few days ago, and hopes that his departure will not have a negative impact on today’s hearing. Follow the news on United States -Mumia Abu-Jamal’s death sentence only further exacerbates public indignation against an unfair trial, inasmuch as the element of doubt should benefit any accused person under any Rule of Law. RSF_en WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Help by sharing this information -The law adopted by the State of Pennsylvania in 1996—also called the “Mumia Law”—prohibiting any photographs, sound recordings or films to be made of a prisoner sentenced to death violates the principle of the free circulation of information ratified by the U.S. Constitution and federal law. Receive email alerts News The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia is due to consider a crucial decision today, whether or not to confirm the death sentence for independent journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, who has been on death row since 1982. It will also be a decisive moment for the rule of law in the “world’s leading democracy.”Reporters Without Borders, whose Washington representative visited Abu-Jamal in Waynesburg penitentiary in August, will attend the hearing. A nine-member French delegation including five national and regional elected representatives and members of the Mumia Abu-Jamal French National Collective (http://www.mumiabujamal.net/) will also be in court.Demonstrations are due to be held today outside US consular and diplomatic offices in seven French cities – Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Rennes and Toulouse.After rejecting appeals by Abu-Jamal’s lawyer, Robert R. Bryan, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling last January sending the case back to the Philadelphia court, which must now decide whether to uphold the sentence or call for a new trial.A onetime Black Panther activist who became a radio journalist in the 1970s, Abu-Jamal was sentenced to death for the murder of a police officer, Daniel Faulkner, in Philadelphia on 9 December 1981. Before his arrest he had come to be known as the “voice of the voiceless” because of his criticism of local government abuses and corruption.We, Reporters Without Borders, are of the opinion that: Newscenter_img -The death penalty is incompatible with the Rule of Law and should be abolished in the United States and in every other country in which it is still applied or maintained in principle. June 3, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas June 7, 2021 Find out more -The fact that Mumia Abu-Jamal is a militant journalist was a factor that weighed in favor of his death sentence in 1982, a decision that flies in the face of every principle of freedom of conscience and freedom of expression upheld by the United States Constitution. to go further Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says -Mumia-Abu-Jamal has not been given a fair trial and should therefore be retried with every guarantee of impartiality.
