Investing for the first time during a FTSE 100 market crash may be a risky move in the short run. After all, your holdings could decline in value over the near term. That’s because the economic impact of coronavirus could prove to be greater than investors are currently anticipating.However, over the long run, a strategy that focuses your capital on FTSE 100 shares could significantly outperform savings held in a Cash ISA. As such, now could be the right time to start buying undervalued stocks. They could improve your retirement prospects.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…Cash ISAsCash ISAs have become relatively unattractive over recent years. A period of low interest rates has meant income returns, in many cases, are lower than inflation. Over the next few years it wouldn’t be a surprise if interest rates fail to rise at a rapid rate.That’s because the Bank of England is likely to a support monetary policy. In other words, it could keep interest rates low to help the economy in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.As such, long-term returns on Cash ISAs could lead to a loss in your spending power compared to FTSE 100 shares. This could make the prospect of retiring early less likely. It may also mean you require a significantly larger sum of capital to enjoy financial freedom in older age than you’d previously expected.FTSE 100Of course, the main benefit of having a Cash ISA is that it won’t lose money in the short run. The FTSE 100 has experienced a rebound over recent weeks following its market crash, but this may prove to be short-lived depending on news regarding coronavirus.While this may be the case, over the long run the index looks set to produce strong returns from its current price level. Many of its members currently have valuations that are significantly lower than their historic averages. Meanwhile, their long-term growth potential seems to be high as a result of them having competitive advantages over their peers.Furthermore, the FTSE 100 has a successful track record of delivering growth even after its past downturns. As such, if you are aged 40 (or have a long time horizon) you’re likely to have sufficient time for the index to recover significantly from its current woes prior to your retirement.Start todayInvesting in FTSE 100 stocks is a relatively straightforward process. Online sharedealing accounts can be opened in a matter of minutes. And their costs are also low enough to make them accessible for a wide range of investors.Therefore, with the FTSE 100 trading at a relatively low level, now could be the right time to focus your capital on stocks, rather than a Cash ISA. It could certainly improve your long-term financial prospects. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img No savings at 40?

Why I’d pick the FTSE 100’s 2 highest yielding shares

first_img Enter Your Email Address Looking at the top end of the FTSE 100 dividend league today there are some juicy looking yields. But the highest yielding shares often divide opinion as to their future prospects.Here I look at a bull and bear case for the two highest yielding shares in the FTSE 100 right now.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…M&G: a bull caseInvestment manager M&G (LSE:MNG) offers a yield of 8.8%.This month, the company announced a dividend increase. The increase was fairly small, at 2.6%. But it was seen as a sign of confidence from the company. That is in line with its stated target of a stable or increasing dividend.Basic earnings per share of 44p grew from last year. The dividend is covered more than twice by earnings.Trading at a price-to-earnings ratio beneath 5, the share looks undervalued to me. There is continued space for demand growth in the investment management space. M&G’s well-known brand can help it to attract customers and benefit from future growth.A bear case for M&GA high yield is often a signal that the market expects possible bad news in future, such as a dividend cut or reduced earnings.One of the difficulties in valuing M&G is that it has a short history as an independently listed company. It was only spun out from Prudential in 2019. That means some investors may be wary of the company until it has a longer financial record as an independently traded share.The market for investment management can be affected by factors such as a fall in savings rates, economic downturn or new regulations. While the pandemic has boosted savings rates, they could fall once the broader economy reopens.FTSE 100’s highest yielding sharesRight now, the highest yielding shares in the FTSE 100 are those of Imperial Brands (LSE:IMB).The most recent dividend payout was today, reminding existing shareholders like myself of the attractive yield. Offering a yield of 9.2%, Imperial puts even M&G’s payout slightly in the shade.While cigarette consumption is declining in key markets, Imperial has set out plans to move into other tobacco formats where it sees growth opportunities. Meanwhile, it is working to shore up its cigarette market share in its key markets. In a trading statement yesterday, the company said that it was now seeing such market share growth across these five markets in aggregate. It reassured the market that trading is in line with expectations.Like M&G, Imperial has a single-digit P/E ratio, less than six.An Imperial bear caseAlthough the yield is strong, last year the company cut its dividend after many years of increases. That makes the dividend more affordable for the company. But it is a harsh reminder that no dividend is ever guaranteed.Smoking is declining in many markets yet remains central to Imperial’s business. Selling its premium cigar business helped the balance sheet – but will make it harder to maintain earnings. The dividend is covered by earnings, but less than in M&G’s case.What I’ll do now about the highest yielding sharesOn balance, I see easier growth prospects for M&G than for Imperial in coming years. That could make dividend maintenance easier.I already own Imperial. My next action is considering opening a position in M&G. That would give me exposure to both of the FTSE 100’s two highest yielding shares.

Crude Oil Ends Above $109

first_imgSyria ranks among the smallest oil producing nations in the Middle East, with International Energy Agency data listing the country as 32nd among global oil producers. However, with instability already roiling the region and raising widespread fears about supply, analysts say a new conflict could further poison the dynamic in the region and trigger new tensions. The prospect of an armed confrontation with Syria sent crude prices soaring on Tuesday, with U.S. oil ending just shy of a new 2013 high as traders positioned for a new Middle East conflict. Fears of regional instability that could crimp oil supplies sent both Brent and West Texas Intermediate surging to multimonth highs during the session, as speculation churned about an intervention in Syria. Traders spurred October U.S. crude, or WTI, to a new 2013 high at $109.32, before it cooled gains to settle at $109.01. That was its highest since February 24, 2012. Brent crude set a new six-month high at $114.42, rallying by $3.50 on the day to its highest since Feb. 26. The crisis follows the recent turmoil in Egypt. “This is a huge deal, particularly for the oil markets,” Helima Croft, commodities research head at Barclays, said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”  “Syria is not a big oil producer, but do we have violence spilling over to key producers like Iraq, OPEC’s second-largest producer? They’ve seen a run-up in violence, and some have tied that significantly to what is going on in Syria,” Croft added. Home Energy Crude Oil Ends Above $109 Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Aug 27, 2013 Facebook Twittercenter_img “When we see WTI prices escalate like this, it typically signals more worry about supply disruptions coming out of the Arabian Sea and other channels” such as the Strait of Hormuz and the Suez Canal,”  Richard Hastings, macro strategist at Global Hunter Securities told CNBC.

“BP is orchestrating the entire operation”

first_img News United StatesAmericas Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en News Interview with Mac McClelland, reporting for Mother Jones magazine on the oil spill. – July 13, 2010.From July 12th, 2010, new procedures permit credentialed news media free travel within the boom safety zones. The official statement says “clear, unfettered access” has two exceptions: safety and security concerns. However, it won’t change the major problem of the quality of the news, according to Mac McClelland, who has been working for 10 weeks on the oil spill for MotherJones.RSF – What kind of information do you get ?MM – BP won’t say anything on anything. Calling BP is a bit like waisting my time but I know my editor wants me to mention it when I try and I don’t get anything.Every information is so hard to get ! It’s hard to get anything on clean up activities when you can’t talk to clean up workers. Even when you call the coast gards, it turns out that they are taking BP’s information. It seems that no independently verified information exist at all.RSF – How do you think BP is managing the crisis ?MM – BP is making a pretty decent effort on beaches were it is easy to get too. But there is sometimes zero clean up on beaches that are more difficult to access. I went to one of the island on a kayak without getting the permission from BP – it takes too long. Out of public view, the clean up operation was even more lax than they were on the other island. So you definitely have to question the clean up work. One worker in Florida came out publicly saying that the whole point on clean up is to look clean. Not to actually be clean. Workers in Louisiana have definitely told me that as well.RSF – Did you see any evolution on how media restriction were established ? MM – No. The level of difficulty in getting info has been static.I have been blocked by cops from day 1, even after the coast guard said reporters would have total access granted to the boom zones and the beaches. PHRASE ENLEVEE. But for me, it’s been static for almost 2 months. It is also difficult to know exactly who is in charge. If one is having encounters with police officers, one should ask them if they are private security for BP or actually Louisiana cops. Some are wearing Louisiana cop uniform but can earn extra money by being a security guard for BP.RSF – Did you ever face a similar situation ? MM – I have written a book on Burma. Here, it reminds me of trying to get information form the Burmese goverment. The kind of independant information that the whole country need does not appear to exist. There is no independant auditors. All the numbers come from BP and nothing proves it is accurate. For example, one story I wrote on the clean up workers ended up to be a story on how hard it is to get information. There is no excuse to have nothing to verify. I can’t believe BP is not orchestrating this entire operation.
