Have £10,000 to invest? I’d buy these FTSE 100 stocks to double my money

Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Manika Premsingh Manika Premsingh | Wednesday, 3rd June, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100 crash seems to be all but over. The index has stayed above 6,000 during the last six sessions. With lockdowns being lifted around the world, optimism about business and the economy is also rising. This can give an even bigger fillip to stock markets. But it also creates an investor dilemma if you have £10,000 to invest. I am keen to invest right now, but I am not sure whether the FTSE 100 index might fall again (or how fast it might continue to rise). The fact is, the economy is still weak. It is possible that there’s more bad news in store that will result in another stock market crash. 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…I think the best way forward now is to invest in shares of dependable companies. If we do that, then we don’t have to worry about what happens to their share prices in the next few months. And of course, stock markets may be so robust that if I have £10,000 to invest now, it could double in a shorter than expected period. But even if shares do not remain strong, and their investment value dips, I am assured that over time I would still come out ahead. Look to the pastOne way to see how dependable a stock might be is to look at its past history. There are several FTSE 100 companies that have been around since longer than the Great Depression. In other words, they have proven time and again that they cannot just survive the bad times but thrive at other times. Two examples are the tobacco biggie Imperial Brands and consumer goods giant Unilever.Long-term potentialIf history is one way of assessing a company, considering its future prospects is another. Tobacco companies, for instance, could see a shrinking in markets over the next decades. So if my investing horizon is that long, I would take this macro-factor into account before buying this and other such stocks. In line with this, online marketplaces like Ocado for groceries and Rightmove for real estate are the companies for the future. £10,000 to invest in financially healthy companiesHaving considered both the past and the future, I think it is also most important to consider where the company is right now if I have £10,000 to invest. I like financially healthy companies with growing revenues and, preferably, rising profits too. Low debt is another positive, though it is not my biggest concern when buying shares of otherwise healthy companies.One I bought recently is British luxury fashion label and retailer Burberry, which is also in fact my top share for June. It ticks boxes for an established past, future potential and healthy present. It is suffering right now, because of the lockdowns and the fact that consumer spending is always curbed during recessions. But I think with its growing Chinese market, its future holds promise. There are plenty of other FTSE 100 stocks in which I can invest £10,000 right away that can offer big returns in the future. I just need to pick them carefully.  center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images Have £10,000 to invest?

St Mary’s Park residents looking for better flood defences in Limerick

first_imgPredictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Print Local St Mary’s Park residents’ representative John Hourigan with Cllr Maurice Quinlivan(pic: Keith Wiseman)OVER a thousand residents in Limerick’s St Mary’s Parish have signed a petition calling for new flood defences along the nearby riverbank, claiming the “patch up job” they currently have is totally ineffective.The petition was organised by local men Richard Lyons and John Hourigan, who claim that millions of euros have been wasted patching the banks of the Shannon without any success. So far, 1,057 residents in St Mary’s Park have signed the petition calling on Limerick City and County Council to take immediate action in remedying the issue.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Mr Hourigan, who has lived in St Mary’s Parish for over 40 years, told the Limerick Post that families are living in fear of having their homes flooded again. He said residents want proper concrete barrier flood defences and insists that the sandbags and earth filling currently in place, are inadequate.“Tonnes of earth have been washed away. It’s a complete waste of time. Sandbags and earth filling won’t keep the water out and people are scared of their lives of more flooding,” said Mr Hourigan.“The job still hasn’t been done right after the floods earlier this year. When we get onto the Council they just fob us off and say they are looking after it. We want the job done properly,” he insists.Residents in St Mary’s Parish believe the riverbank will be breached again and are fearful they will be faced with another nightmare situation like in February of this year when their homes were left under several feet of river water.“Four times the riverbank has been patched up already. I believe without a shadow of a doubt the river will flood again. The riverbank is a fantastic facility, I’ve seen world champion athlete Paula Radcliffe running out there, and it deserves the job done right,” Mr Hourigan concluded.According to a spokesperson for Limerick City and County Council, the local authority continues to monitor the flood embankment in St Mary’s Park and in particular the section of embankment that failed on February 1 last.In a statement to the Limerick Post this week, the Council said, “Movement and settlement of this embankment continues and Limerick City and County Council has a contractor on site dealing with these matters as they arise. Temporary re-reinforcement and stabilisation works continue to be carried out on this section of the riverside embankment to prevent flooding.”Limerick City and County Council has made an application to Government for funding for permanent flood defence work in St Mary’s Park and is currently awaiting a decision.“The Council has been requested to remove a limited number of temporary sandbags on Verdant Place for the Summer and will arrange to do so over the coming days,” said a Council spokesperson.

For out-of-state movers, 12.4 percent of requests were for Florida, the study found. Texas had the highest percentage of residents looking to move within state lines with 93.4 percent of purchase mortgage requests from individuals of the Lone Star State being for properties within the state. Texas also beat Florida in the number of people from other states looking to move.Alaska topped the list of states where residents were looking to move away with only 75.2 percent looking to stay on in the state. Washington was the preferred state for residents looking to move out of Alaska.When adjusted for population size, the study found that South Carolina scored the highest as “mortgage loan requests were 52 percent greater than suggested by its share of the national population.” Florida, Delaware, Georgia, and North Carolina were also among the top states when viewed by this metric. North Dakota led the states that were least popular by this metric followed by Hawaii, Minnesota, California, and New York.Click here to read the full study.

Interest Rates Cut for the First Time in a Decade

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Interest Rates Cut for the First Time in a Decade Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Interest rates have been cut for the first time in a decade, as the Fed announced Wednesday that rates will drop by a quarter of a point. According to reports from The Washington Post, interest rates will fall to 2.25%, with the Fed saying that the central bank is ready to “cut more to stimulate the economy, if necessary.” “Uncertainties about this [economic] outlook remain,” the Fed wrote, adding, “As the [Fed] contemplates the future path of the target range for the federal funds rate, it will continue to monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlook and will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion.”Realtor.com’s Chief Economist Danielle Hale said economic growth has stalled and inflation has remained under the Fed’s 2% target since the last rate cut. “Although the labor market remains strong, with healthy job growth and the unemployment rate near long-term lows, the Fed’s concerns about our economic outlook and the long lag time between lowering rates and seeing effects in the real economy were key drivers of the decision,” Hale said. Hale said it is “unlikely” that Wednesday’s rate cut will lead to additional drop in mortgage rates, because interest rate dropping was expected. Hale, though, added a factor that may put pressure on rates is an earlier end to the fed’s balance sheet ending, which is now planned for August—two months earlier than expected. Tian Liu, Chief Economist at Genworth Mortgage Insurance, said while the cut was anticipated by many in the industry, it is “not a major deviation from what the market was anticipating.”Liu added that the housing market is likely to see a boost moving forward, as the moderate drop will likely stimulate economic growth, and possibly bring buyers back to the market. “I think a lot of people were talking about waiting out for the Fed rate cut, and I think once they see that the Fed rate cut is not going to change mortgage rates significantly, they will likely come off the sidelines and start buying again,” Liu said. “I think that’s going to be positive for the housing market and also for the mortgage industry.” The mortgage industry has had a successful Q2 2019, Liu said, noting the industry has brought in more than $560 billion in origination. Although a rate cut was expected, the Fed was facing pressure, especially from President Donald Trump, to drop rates. Trump tweeted in July that he believes now is the best time to cut interest rates.“Very inexpensive, in fact productive, to move now,” the President tweeted. “The Fed raised & tightened far too much & too fast.”The economy exceeded expectations in Q2 2019, although slowing, according to the latest GDP report, which reported that Q2 2019 saw the GDP increase at an annual rate of 2.1%, compared to Q1 2019’s rate of 3.1%. Liu said the latest GDP report shows a moderate slowdown, and something the Fed hopes to address in a “gentle way.” While noting the economic slowdown is not as dramatic as some anticipated, the Fed would like to see a faster level of growth. Although this is the first cut in a decade, Liu said there is a good chance the wait won’t be as long for the next, as there is a “very high probability” of a second rate cut later in 2019.Any additional rate cuts will depend on how the global economy, trade tensions, and the financial market reacts to Wednesday’s cuts, Liu said.
