£5,000 to invest? 2 cheap FTSE 100 shares I’d buy in an ISA to beat the State Pension

first_img£5,000 to invest? 2 cheap FTSE 100 shares I’d buy in an ISA to beat the State Pension Peter Stephens owns shares of British American Tobacco and Royal Dutch Shell B. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s recent stock market crash has led to greater caution among many investors. As such, they may consider buying other assets when seeking to build a retirement portfolio that can reduce their reliance on the State Pension.However, the index’s low price level could mean there are buying opportunities on offer. Over time, they could produce impressive returns that improve your prospects of generating a generous passive income in older age.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…With that in mind, here are two large-cap stocks that appear to offer good value for money and long-term recovery potential after their recent declines. They could boost your retirement prospects as part of a diverse range of stocks.A FTSE 100 turnaround opportunityFTSE 100 oil and gas shares such as Shell (LSE: RDSB) have experienced a hugely challenging 2020. The deteriorating prospects for the world economy have led to a declining oil price. This is having a negative impact on the company’s financial performance.In response, the business is cutting up to 9,000 staff members as part of a wider plan to reduce costs. For example, it reduced operating expenditure by $1.1bn and capital expenditure by $1.4bn in the most recent quarter. As well as this, it is aiming to shift its investment focus towards low-carbon assets that could help it to generate a more sustainable rate of profit growth over the long run.Looking ahead, Shell’s uncertain operating conditions could make it a more volatile stock than many of its FTSE 100 index peers. However, its 58% share price decline since the start of the year could mean that investors have factored in many of the risks it faces. As such, with cost reductions and a change in strategy ahead, it may offer long-term recovery potential.A large-cap income opportunityMany FTSE 100 shares have cut their dividends this year. As such, defensive stocks such as British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) could become more popular in a low-interest-rate environment.The company has a yield of around 8%. It appears to be affordable, with the firm targeting a 65% dividend payout ratio. Its defensive business model may also make it more appealing in an era of economic uncertainty.British American Tobacco continues to invest in non-combustible products such as e-cigarettes that could gradually account for a greater share of its revenue. Already, they contribute around 10% of its sales and could provide a long-term growth opportunity for the business.The company’s stable earnings growth forecasts may increase its appeal among investors at a time when many FTSE 100 shares are struggling to post positive sales and profit growth. As such, it could offer impressive total returns in the coming years through rising demand for its shares and the reinvestment of its generous dividend payouts.

TCU steps up efforts to promote financial literacy with new additions to Money Week

Panelist and instructor of One Million Reasons’ personal finance class, Ramona Locke, disagreed. Locke said Social Security would likely be there in the future, but added it will take action from Congress, which she believes will happen.Students attend an expert panel on personal finance Tuesday evening. Photo courtesy of Rachael Capua.Capua said the partnership with human resources was natural progression.The program decided to include events geared towards professionals because its goal is to increase financial literacy throughout the entire university, she said.Research shows financial literacy is a skill lacking among professors, as much as it is among students. A study of higher education by Fidelity Investments found that college professors gave themselves a “B” grade when it came to financial literacy and over half were worried they might outlive their retirement savings.One Million Reasons will continue to expand after Money Week is over by adding an additional section of their personal finance class next fall.

TCU Human Resources also had programming for faculty and staff.Tabling events promoted the week. Photo courtesy of Rachael Capua.Money Week was hosted by One Million Reasons, a collaborative effort between Student Development Services and the Office of Financial Aid to raise financial literacy awareness on campus.The week, which is hosted every year in April to celebrate Financial Literacy Month, hosted thirteen events on campus including workshops, an expert panel, and a budget cooking demonstration.“Financial wellness is so key because it’s a big part of your life…so we are really trying to promote the importance of saving and saving early so that future you will thank you for it,” said Rachael Capua, assistant director of the sophomore and junior year experience.“Our program is called One Million Reasons and there are many reasons why it’s helpful not only for your long term, but also your short term,” she said.In the fall, the program launched its one credit-hour personal finance class.  Merrill Lynch Senior Vice President Ramona Locke teaches students financial management skills for life today, post graduate, and even further down the line.One Million Reasons Ambassador and junior biology major Lindsay Shanley said the class is important because it teaches budgeting and other financial skills students often don’t learn at school. “It’s probably some of the single most important things we could be learning in college, yet we’re not because there are no classes on personal finance,” Shanley said. “None of that stuff is required.”Financial literacy is becoming an increasingly important skill for students to gain before graduating college and taking on the often overwhelming task of managing their money.According to the Institute for College Access and Success, 43 percent of TCU students graduated with debt in 2014, averaging $39,584.Besides student loans, this generation of college students will also need to be financially savvy to prepare for retirement with the possibility of no Social Security.According to the Social Security and Medicare trustees’ 2016 annual report, Social Security’s two trust funds—one for retiree benefits and one for disability benefits—will be depleted by 2034 if lawmakers do not address the funds’ “long-term financing shortfalls.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Ryder Buttry last_img read more

The Single Bench of Justice V Kameswar Rao disposed of the petition after noting that the Central Government has already issued guidelines under section 8 of the PwD Act to give effect to the demands raised by the Petitioner. The court further noted that these guidelines are already being implemented by the Delhi Government. In this PIL, the Petitioner has sought a direction to be issued to the Central Government to classify caretakers, attendants and support staff of the persons with disabilities as medical personnel and consequently, grant them exemptions under the National Disaster Management Act, including but not limited to their transit. Today, the Petitioner had argued that since the caretakers/ support staff are not exempted under the MHA guidelines on nationwide lockdown, they are not in a position to obtain a pass for travelling from their residences to the residence of the person with disabilities to support him. It was further argued by the Petitioner that some of the caretakers/attendants and support staff are not registered as medical personnel and accordingly, do not satisfy the criteria prescribed by the Government for grant of exemptions under National Disaster Management Act. In the last hearing, the Delhi High Court had directed the Central Government to consider whether caretakers, attendants and support staff of persons with disabilities could be granted exemption under the National Disaster Manager Act for the purposes of providing support to the persons with disability, who are unable to take care of themselves without such support. The court had further directed the Central Government to also consider as which category of persons with disability’s caretakers, attendants and support staff would be granted exemption and subject to what conditions. The order has come in a PIL filed a person who’s suffering from 100% disability below D5-6 level and accordingly, cannot perform his day-to-day functions without the help of a caretaker/attendant. The Petitioner in this case is being represented by Advocates Karan Mathur and Ivo D’Costa. Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

The Supreme Court had confirmed their death sentences by dismissing their appeals in 2010 and the review petitions filed by them were dismissed in 2017.After the Mercy Petition preferred by them got rejected, they approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The said writ petition was dismissed by the High Court (single bench judgment was upheld by the division bench) and thus he approached the Apex Court by filing an SLP.Before the Apex Court, it was submitted that the mother of Vikram Singh @ Vicky Walia died on 13.11.2020 and some of the last rites including Bhog Ceremony are to be performed on 19.11.2020 and 21.11.2020 at Patiala and thus he be permitted to attend these ceremonies. In this regard, the State Counsel submitted that there is no provision that a death convict can be released on parole. However, he suggested that he can be afforded the permission to attend the last rites and ceremonies of his deceased mother on the relevant dates from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m., provided he is accompanied by the Police Escort all the time. The bench comprising Justices Uday Umesh Lalit, Vineet Saran and S.

The application seeking ASI survey, filed today(April 14), is expected to be considered on May 10. UP Sunni Central Waqf Board, which is managing the Shahi Eidgah, is the first defendant in the case.Last year, the Mathura Civil Court had dismissed a similar suit filed on behalf of the deity was not filed through the shebait and was filed through a devotee.”If each and every devotee is allowed to institute such suits, it would Jeopardize the Judicial and Social System”, the Court observed in the order passed in September last year.Appeal is pending in the District Court against the dismissal of that suit.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
