Kevin Godbold | Saturday, 6th June, 2020 Image source: Getty Images Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

You’ve probably heard all the arguments against putting money in a Cash ISA already. Indeed, the interest rates are pitifully low. And your money could gradually lose its value as it falls behind the rate of inflation.Compounding your returns from sharesNo doubt you also know about the big dividend yields that have been paid by many companies on the stock market up until the recent stock market crash. Not all companies have stopped their dividends, and many will likely restart shareholder payments in time. And if you reinvest that dividend income, you could be on your way to compounding your returns. And probably at a faster rate than any cash savings account can grow your money.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…Of course, the unknown factor with shares and share-based investments, such as managed funds and trackers, is that share prices can fluctuate. Indeed, unlike a cash account, the money you invest can go up and down. And you can’t have missed the recent coronavirus-induced stock market crash, which toppled many shares.But the fluid nature of share prices brings opportunity as well as threat. And if you choose your investments carefully, capital appreciation from rising share prices can turbo-charge your investment returns. And that’s on top of dividend income.Collective investingIf you’re new to the world of investing in the stock market, I’d recommend you start with a collective investment before trying to pick the shares of individual companies. That’s what I did when I started. My first investment was in a FTSE 100 tracker fund.And I reckon the FTSE 100 is a good place to begin today. The index follows the fortunes of the UK’s largest public limited companies. I see a FTSE 100 tracker fund as a good vehicle for harvesting a decent-sized dividend yield too.If you select the Accumulation version of the tracker fund, the dividends will be rolled back into the fund automatically for you. And that will put you on the path to compounding your money. The alternative is the Income version, which will pay the money to your bank account.One of the behaviours I like about the FTSE 100 is that it always seems to bounce back from its lows. And we’ve had a great demonstration of that feature over recent weeks. The reason for that is many of the underlying businesses behind the shares tracked are cyclical in nature.So a regular monthly investment of £500 in a Stocks and Shares ISA could work well with an FTSE 100 tracker. When the index dips, you’ll get more units for your money. And when it peaks, you won’t be investing all your annual ISA allowance at the highs.And if you look at the long-term chart for the FTSE 100 index, you’ll see it tends to rise over time. I think that trend looks set to continue and will probably help to keep your investment forging ahead of inflation and delivering decent returns over time.

Stocks and Shares ISA: which shares should I buy in 2021?

first_img 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. See all posts by Alan Oscroft Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. There’s not long to go until we have a whole new ISA allowance. That means we can invest up to £20,000 more come April, and not pay any tax when we eventually cash it in. For me, it brings the same old questions again. What types of shares are best for my Stocks and Shares ISA, and how should I invest differently this year?I generally prefer to buy FTSE 100 shares that pay dividends these days, and that might seem like a sensible ISA strategy. After all, dividend shares are less risky, aren’t they? And it should be easier for me to stash them away and ignore them for years, just taking the annual cash, shouldn’t it?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…Well, I own shares in Lloyds Banking Group. And the Lloyds share price is down around 35% over the past five years. Oh, and my nice safe dividends have been halted. Sure, the dividend has been paused at the behest of the regulator, and I suspect it’s likely to be reinstated relatively quickly. And I might buy some more for my 2021 Stocks and Shares ISA. But it does shows that dividend shares aren’t necessarily safer than growth shares.Growth vs incomeSpeaking of growth shares, I also have a holding in Boohoo, which doesn’t pay any dividends. But the Boohoo share price has soared eight-fold over the same five years. Unfortunately I didn’t buy them that long ago. But, so far at least, my ISA money would have done a lot better in the growth stock that is Boohoo than in income-paying Lloyds shares.People might make assumptions about the relative risks of various types of shares. But I prefer to ignore such generalisations and focus on the individual companies. So if I’m convinced that a company is a great one and its shares are good value, I’ll rate it a buy. If not, I won’t.Some will argue that putting Stocks and Shares ISA money into dividend-paying shares is a good choice for retired investors. It can hopefully provide a steady income — at least, steadier than growth shares paying no dividends at all. But then, I have a friend who retired with a portfolio of growth shares. They pay only modest dividends now, and for years didn’t pay any at all. He gets his income by selling some shares at regular intervals.Stocks and Shares ISA strategySo for me, if the overall value of my Stocks and Shares ISA is increasing over the long term, and I can take regular income from it (via selling shares or collecting dividends), I’ll be happy.But what about 2021 specifically? The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the investing landscape dramatically, hasn’t it? Well, it hasn’t changed my long-term strategy in the slightest. I’m still guided by Warren Buffett’s exhortation to look for great companies at good prices.That might get me some better bargains while share prices are depressed. But I’ll be investing in exactly the same kind of companies that I was seeking anyway. The priority for me is to use as much of my annual Stocks and Shares ISA allowance as I can, without worrying about short-term ups and downs.

He added: “We have already had contact from some families and friends of players who are likely to make the Wales squad, but this offer is open to all travelling supporters from Wales. We will need to know as much detail as possible to try to match up the groups with suitable families but we are treating this as something which will be quite enjoyable and probably quite social for all involved.”The Group Chief Executive of the Welsh Rugby Union, Roger Lewis, said: “This is a fantastic offer which shows the great bonds of respect and friendship between our two rugby nations. I know the Welsh supporters who travel to New Zealand will have a fantastic time in a great country and this project will surely help make the experience even more enjoyable. It is a wonderful gesture and shows what high esteem Welsh fans are held in wherever they travel to support the team.” For further information on the project please contact Basil Lennan at [email protected] The project organisers are hoping to hear from travelling fans soon to ensure they can help as many supporters as possible. Basil Lennan said: “The idea was forged out of a desire to show Welsh fans the best of Waikato Rugby hospitality. The idea is that no money will change hands but everyone involved will forge lasting bonds and create memories of the Rugby World Cup. A vast number of us have travelled and experienced fantastic hospitality in the past and this is a chance for us to give something back along with hopefully having a great time.

Yu Tamura’s two early penalties were cancelled out by Henry Taefu and there was only one score between the sides at the break, Samoan-born centre Timothy Lafaele crossing on the left after a coruscating run by Matsushima had caused the damage.

His break teed up the position for the opening try and he finished skilfully at the end to secure the bonus point. He carried for 110 metres and was undoubtedly the biggest running threat on the pitch.Bonus time: Kotaro Matsushima scores Japan’s fourth try as the hosts returned to the top of Pool A (Getty)The reactionJapan coach Jamie Joseph: “I’m really proud of the team, especially at the end there. That was a never-die attitude. We knew that was going to be a real physical battle and Samoa never let us down. They were impressive, particularly because they played a Test four days ago. We were ready for a spirited performance from Samoa but they really took it to the next level.“Even today, the belief in our team has grown and I guess we’ll need it going into next week. It’s the first time ever Japan’s got themselves in the position where they can top the pool so it’s new territory for us.”On the growing pressure on Japan: “I’ve got to put everybody straight. We’ve got a really awesome opportunity to do something that’s not been done before. No one thought we could beat Ireland and now they think we can win every game we play. That’s how silly it is.”Skirting round: Kenki Fukuoka scores Japan’s third try with just five minutes remaining (Getty Images)Japan No 8 Kazuki Himeno: “We’ve finished in the best way possible. Getting the bonus point will be a turning point and I am relieved we got it. Samoa were a strong side but the fans here and watching across the country with television pushed at our backs. It was the greatest feeling. We want to win all the games to reach the last eight.””On his tackling that forced turnovers: “I’m always intent on producing a piece of play that turns dangers into chances, so I’m glad to have made two of them.”Samoa coach Steve Jackson: “What an amazing crowd – 40,000 people and I think 39,500 of them were Japanese supporters. It’s deafening. We tried to go out there and silence the crowd by getting points on board. At times we did that but we just failed to capitalise. Look at the crowd – you can hear it now – and it’s just great to be part of this atmosphere.Cultural challenge: the Samoa players perform the Siva Tau prior to the match in Toyota (Getty Images)“Japan were deserved winners. We had opportunities here to really put some pressure on it that game and unfortunately we didn’t come out with the win.”On TJ Ioane’s yellow card, and losing Tim Nanai-Williams following an HIA: “I agree TJ’s (tackle) was late. But it was shoulder to the chest, then it is shoulder to the head (against Nanai-Williams) and we lose a player after the HIA. I don’t take away anything from the Japan side but our players deserve better than that.”“Henry (Taefu) was outstanding. He took over kicking duties but, not only that, his carrying too. He’s been a shining light, as Seilala (Lam) was tonight. I’m proud of their efforts.”On Samoa’s final game, against Ireland next Saturday: “We’ve got nothing to lose now, have we? Playing against Ireland – again, what an opportunity for us to beat one of the top teams in the world. We’ll throw everything at it. We’re just going to go out there and enjoy it.”Samoa captain Jack Lam on choosing a scrum on their line in the final seconds: “I thought our scrum was doing well at the time and we back our team to score from anywhere.” Samoa won a free-kick from the scrum and could have ended the match but they chose to take a scrum on their line and then conceded a free-kick themselves. Japan elected to scrum and, initially denied a penalty try on safety grounds as they thundered forward, they worked Matsushima in on the left for the bonus-point try.Japan have now matched their three wins at RWC 2015 and in all probability they will have a four-point lead over Scotland – yet to play Russia – when the teams meet next weekend in Yokohama.

Hosting their first World Cup, Japan made history… A rundown of the Rugby World Cup groups… Five-pointer: Japan celebrate the try by Timothy Lafaele that set them on their way against Samoa (Getty) The extraordinary ruck efficiency that we saw from Japan in their victory against Ireland was absent this time, with Samoa clearly targeting aggressive clear-outs as a means to disrupt the hosts. And Japan’s discipline was ragged too, especially at the breakdown; they conceded ten penalties having conceded just 12 in their first two matches put together.Samoa were also culpable and flanker TJ Ioane, who has had a fine tournament, blotted his copybook with a late, no-arms hit on Matsushima that saw him yellow-carded.Samoa coach Steve Jackson applauded sarcastically as Jaco Peyper brandished the card, but he could have no complaints. Jackson’s mood didn’t improve when Tim Nanai-Williams was obliged to go off for an HIA having collided with James Moore as the Japan lock attempted a charge-down. It yielded a soft penalty that Taefu slotted to reduce the arrears to seven.Rugby fever: Japan’s great start to the tournament has captured the nation’s imagination (AFP/Getty)After Japan turned round 16-9 ahead, Taefu and Tamura exchanged penalties before the second try arrived on 53 minutes, Japan No 8 Kazuki Himeno scoring from a driving maul.Yet Samoa refused to lie down. When lock Kane Le’aupepe precipitated a series of goal-line thrusts by carrying forcefully off a lineout, Taefu was on hand to finish. His conversion took his personal points tally to 19 – before this match he had only scored three Test points.Samoa again trailed by seven with eight minutes remaining and Japan’s hopes of gleaning a bonus point were ebbing away. But Kenki Fukuoka – their try-scorer against Ireland – was neatly put over by Lomano Lemeki and then, after Samoa resisted a huge lineout drive by Japan in which almost every home player piled in, came a twist.

Hoosier Farmer Pushes for Tax Reform in Washington

first_img Isabella ChismTax policies to support and preserve agriculture are essential to every farmer and rancher in America, a group of Farm Bureau members in Washington, D.C., this week to meet with lawmakers say. “Tax reform is critical for farmers and ranchers,” said Isabella Chism, a corn and soybean farmer and Farm Bureau member from Indiana who is vice chair of the AFB Women’s Leadership Committee. “Reform is absolutely necessary so we can pass our farms and ranches down to our sons and daughters.”Kalena Bruce, a Farm Bureau member from Missouri, said “Farming is very risky. There are several big unknowns, like the weather and markets. Congress can help farmers and ranchers with permanent tax reform that lowers the effective tax rate across the board for farmers and ranchers. For me, that means continuing cash accounting and the business interest expense deduction and allowing immediate expensing.” Bruce, who operates a commercial beef ranch and u-pick berry patch, is also a certified public accountant and serves as chair of AFBF’s Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee.Andy Hill, a Farm Bureau member and farmer from Iowa who grows corn and soybeans and serves on AFBF’s Budget and Economy Issue Advisory Committee, is especially concerned about the need for estate tax repeal and capital gains tax reform.“Both of those have limited the options available—both to agriculture as a whole and to my family. I’m particularly concerned about capital gains taxes preventing my family from keeping our century farm,” Hill said.Farm Bureau is seeking tax reform that will help all types of farm and ranch businesses: sole-proprietors, partnerships, sub-S and C corporations. In addition, Farm Bureau supports replacing the current federal income tax with a fair and equitable tax system that encourages success, savings, investment, and entrepreneurship.

The Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat has remanded Khalid to judicial custody till October 22. Today, Khalid was produced before the court after the end of his 10 days of police custody. The police had sought the said custody to confront him with the huge technical data of more than 40GB. The police alleged that Khalid had hatched a conspiracy along with several groups to appeal to various Muslim minority groups to block the roads and public places in Delhi during the visit of President Donald Trump “so that a propaganda may be flashed at international forum that the Muslim minority community in India are being tortured”. It was further alleged that consequent to the conspiracy, riots started in various parts of North East Delhi during February 23-25. Appearing for Khalid before the Additional Sessions Court, Karkardooma, his lawyer Trideep Pais opposed the remand submitting that the police case was nothing but an “empty rhetoric”. Pais submitted that Khalid was always cooperating with the investigation and presented himself for interrogation whenever asked to. So, there was no flight risk. He was interrogated for five hours on July 31 and the whole day on September 13. Still, the counsel submitted, the police could not find anything incriminating against Khalid. Pais further submitted that Khalid’s speeches always appealed for peace and to uphold the Constitution. There was nothing objectionable in them. “Being opposed to the CAA is not a crime”, Pais submitted. The lawyer further said that a frenzy was being created against Khalid.
