See all posts by Peter Stephens 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. 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.

Planning for retirement can be a challenging process. However, buying shares for the long term, rather than holding cash or bonds, could mean that you enjoy higher returns which bring retirement a step closer.Moreover, by adopting a value investing strategy that enables you to capitalise on the cyclicality of the stock market, you can boost your returns.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…Furthermore, with there being a number of sectors that appear to offer strong growth prospects in the long run, now could be the right time to start planning for your retirement.Asset classesWhile holding cash and investing in bonds may be less risky options compared to the stock market, shares can produce relatively high returns in the long run. In fact, indexes such as the S&P 500 and FTSE 100 have recorded high single-digit annual total returns over the long run. By contrast, low interest rates at the present time mean that cash and bonds may fail to deliver a significant positive real-terms return.As such, if you have a long time period until you aim to retire, focusing your capital on the stock market could be a sound move. It may produce more volatile returns in the short run – as the recent stock market pullback highlights – but could increase your chances of retiring early.Market cyclicalityAdopting a value investing strategy may enhance your overall returns. Value investors such as Warren Buffett have sought to capitalise on the cyclicality of the stock market through buying during downturns. Such periods occur on a surprisingly regular basis, with investor sentiment being subject to major change without prior notice.Through buying high-quality shares while they trade on low valuations, you may be able to obtain a favourable risk/reward ratio which improves your chances of retiring early. Certainly, such a strategy can lead to paper losses in the short run. But by focusing on the long run and buying while other investors are concerned about the short term prospects for the stock market, you can increase the future value of your retirement nest egg.Growth sectorsDetermining which sectors will produce high returns in the long run is challenging. After all, nobody knows what the global economy will look like in the coming years, or how it will perform.However, a number of sectors currently appear to offer as relatively high chance of delivering impressive returns due to their favourable outlooks. For example, healthcare is likely to enjoy high levels of demand due to a rising and ageing world population. Similarly, online retail seems to be becoming increasingly popular in a wider range of economies, while sectors such as financial services appear to offer stocks that trade on wide margins of safety in many cases.Through investing in sectors that seem to offer favourable risk/reward ratios, you can increase your chances of building a retirement portfolio which grows at a relatively fast pace and enables you to enjoy financial freedom in older age.

Additionally, Dalton Papalii is a new All Black and Matt Todd comes in to replace an injured Sam Cane and unavailable loose forwards Shannon Frizell and Jordan Taufua.The introduction of Todd is a step away form the usual All Blacks selection policy after he was selected despite playing for Japanese club Panasonic Wild Knights. Usually players have to play in the country to be selected.Exception: Matt Todd has been selected despite the usual NZRU selection policies (Getty Images)Hansen has also named a 19-man wider training squad for the All Blacks match against Japan. This features seven uncapped players who are Tyrel Lomax, Reuben O’Neill, Gareth Evans, Bryn Hall, Brett Cameron, George Bridge and Matt Proctor.Hansen has clearly decided to use this period to prepare for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan next year. He said; “Having the extra group come to Japan will allow us to send the bulk of our main squad to London early to acclimatise and prepare for what will be three big Test matches in the Northern Hemisphere, starting with England.“Bringing in the wider squad players also allows us to grow our player depth and will expose them to the international arena, which we think will be great for their development and, in turn, will benefit New Zealand Rugby in the long-term.“We’ll also be using the Japanese leg of our Tour to road test a few things ahead of next year’s Rugby World Cup, as we will be using the same hotels and training facilities while we are there. We’re also playing Australia and Japan at two of our Rugby World Cup venues,” How To Watch The 2018 Autumn Internationals The All Blacks have named a 51-man squad for their upcoming matches.

In fact all three Barrett brothers start with Jordie replacing Ben Smith on the wing and Scott coming into the second row.Additionally Dalton Papalii could earn his second cap off the bench.“The Italians will bring plenty of line speed, with a wide defensive spread, and again allows us to experience playing this type of team,” Hansen said.“They’re big men who play with a lot of passion and pride.“Our goal will be to create quality set-piece ball and lightning quick ruck ball, coupled with a real accuracy in our decision-making so we can use our skill-sets accordingly.”New Zealand team to face Italy in the Autumn Internationals – 24th November Damian McKenzie, Jordie Barrett, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ngani Laumape, Waisake Naholo, Beauden Barrett, TJ Perenara, Ofa Tuungafasi, Dane Coles, Nepo Laulala, Patrick Tuipulotu, Scott Barrett, Vaea Fifita, Ardie Savea, Kieran Read (c).Replacements: Nathan Harris, Karl Tu’inukuafe, Angus Ta’avao, Brodie Retallick, Dalton Papalii, Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, Richie Mo’unga, Rieko Ioane.New Zealand team to face Ireland in the Autumn Internationals – 17th November Damian McKenzie; Ben Smith, Jack Goodhue, Ryan Crotty, Rieko Ioane; Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith; Karl Tu’inukuafe, Codie Taylor, Owen Franks, Samuel Whitelock, Brodie Retallick, Liam Squire, Ardie Savea, Kieran ReadReplacements: Dane Coles, Ofa Tuungafasi, Nepo Laulala, Scott Barrett, Matt Todd, TJ Perenara, Richie Mo’unga, Anton Lienert-Brown.New Zealand team to face England in the Autumn Internationals – 10th NovemberDamian McKenzie, Ben Smith, Jack Goodhue, Sonny Bill Williams, Rieko Ioane, Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith, Karl Tu’inukuafe, Codie Taylor, Owen Franks, Samuel Whitelock, Brodie Retallick, Liam Squire, Ardie Savea, Kieran ReadReplacements: Dane Coles, Ofa Tuungafasi, Nepo Laulala, Scott Barrett, Matt Todd, TJ Perenara, Richie Mo’unga, Ryan Crotty Take a look at the Welsh squad for… Backs: Mitchell Drummond, Bryn Hall, Brett Cameron, Ngani Laumape, Matt Proctor, George Bridge, David Havili, Nehe Milner-SkudderDon’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news from the world of rugby.

Flash sparks Charitycards.co.uk debate in Guardian

Mr Stevenson’s argument that the technology is out there so use it is not uncommon. However, charities sticking to it are likely to annoy donors and even more importantly potential donors.

Gordon Stevenson retorted that “the original web designer of charitycards was correct to use Flash, since 69.78% of all web browsers now have Flash player installed.”Mr Stevenson wondered “and what about the other 30.22% of lost customers?” His answer – “why didn’t they simply install the free Flash player?”So, the customer is wrong and needs to get the right technology to buy a charity card online? That is hardly a customer- or indeed donor-focused approach. Advertisement read more

Behind the pension crisis in Russia

first_imgAccording to Labor Minister Maxim Topilin, the government plan would slash the number of people eligible to receive pensions by almost 11 percent — 4.6 million people — by 2024. Officials claim this is not a death sentence for older workers already tottering on the edge of destitution, but rather an opportunity for new, higher paying jobs through professional retraining.This refrain will sound familiar to many workers in the U.S. In fact, Medvedev, Topilin and other proponents of the plan are explicitly looking to the U.S., with its cuts in social programs and increased pressure on workers to delay retirement, despite the steep decline in long-term, well-paying jobs.Russian workers aren’t fooled. Among the most popular signs at recent protests are “Pension in the grave” and “Be a patriot — kick the bucket before you get a pension.”According to Oleg Babich of the Russian Confederation of Labor, by 2024 the economy would need to generate between 7 and 7.5 million jobs to accommodate both delayed retirements and young people entering the job market. “We have figures from the same Ministry of Labor that 300,000 jobs will be created next year,” said Babich. (SVpressa, July 19)Others point out that the destruction of the institutions that supported workers in socialist times means the “reform” would have a massive impact on the whole working class, not just those approaching retirement age. The loss of affordable housing and quality, accessible health care means working families will face the same crises that those in the U.S. with senior parents and grandparents do.Also, with the sharp decline in childcare options for workers, grandparents are increasingly called upon to watch young children while parents work or attend school.Academics and activists agree that the reason the Putin-Medvedev regime is pushing the unpopular attack now is an impending deadline in 2022, when retiring workers would first begin drawing on a new Western-style, investment-based pension system introduced after the destruction of socialism.These instruments have been ruthlessly looted for short-term gains by the oligarchs. If people continue to retire at the current rate, by 2024 the government will be unable to hide the shortfall or its causes. “It was not abstract funds that were plundered,” noted Dr. Nikita Krichevsky, chief researcher at the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences. “They plundered part of people’s salary that was deferred for many years for use in old age.” (SVpressa, July 19)“Let’s be honest — the pension, even before its planned cancellation, was insultingly small,” says Anatoly Baranov, a secretary of the United Communist Party (OKP). “It’s impossible to live on it, and the ‘young’ pensioners are forced to somehow earn additional income. But this tiny pension is, in fact, a small acknowledgement that at 60 years old you can’t earn as much as at 30. …“If the state is unable to fulfill its obligations to citizens of retirement age — then declare yourselves bankrupt! And we ourselves will take what we need from the stolen property. Give us back the factories and oil industries that were squeezed dry by the oligarchs.” (UCP.su, July 19)Or, as a woman protesting in Tver put it: “In China, thieving officials are taken in the streets and shot, and their property confiscated. We want that too.” (New York Times, Aug. 8)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
