Cash ISA savers are making just £12 per year. Here’s how I’d invest £5k today

first_img 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The latest news is grim for cash savers. The Bank of England’s latest interest rate cut means that high street banks have slashed savings rates again. The average Cash ISA now pays interest of just £12 per year on a typical balance of £5,114, according to data from RateSetter.Fortunately, there is another way. A Stocks and Shares ISA provides all the tax-free benefits of a Cash ISA. But it also gives you the chance to earn much bigger returns on your cash, as I’ll explain today.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 ISA vs Stocks and Shares ISAI’d always suggest keeping an emergency cash fund for life’s rainy days. But if you want to use your spare cash to build wealth, then I think using a Stocks & Shares ISA to invest in the stock market is a much better option.The average high street cash ISA now pays just 0.24%, according to RateSetter.But over the last 100 years, the UK stock market has generated an average return of about 8% each year. That’s equivalent to an annual gain of more than £400, based on the £5k ISA balance I mentioned above. I know which I’d prefer.Buy now for the bounceGive that the stock market crashed in March, you might think that a Cash ISA would be a safer place for your money. But I don’t think so. If you look back at the last 30 years, stock market crashes have always provided great buying opportunities for long-term investors.When the market crashed on Black Friday in October 1987, the FTSE 100 had returned to its previous highs — a gain of 34% — by August 1989. Crashes in 2000 and 2008 were also followed by strong recoveries lasting several years.Over the last few weeks, I’ve been buying FTSE 100 shares, which look cheap to me. To make sure that any profits and future dividends are protected from the taxman, all of these shares have gone into my Stocks and Shares ISA.Stocks and Share ISA: essential factsThe Stocks and Shares ISA provides all the same tax-free benefits as a Cash ISA. You won’t ever have to pay capital gains tax or income tax on gains made in the account.You can pay into one ISA of each type every year. So you can split your savings between a Cash ISA and a Stocks and Shares ISA, for example.However, remember that the ISA contribution limit of £20,000 each year applies to your total ISA contributions. So the total you pay into both of your ISAs mustn’t be more than £20k.How I’d get startedThe tax year ends on 5 April, but you’ve still got time to open a Stocks and Shares ISA and deposit some cash. There’s no need to rush into any investments — once the cash is in your ISA, it’s protected from tax.What would I buy with £5k today? What I’ve been doing is to spread the cash between good quality FTSE 100 dividend stocks, such as GlaxoSmithKline and Unilever. Over the long term, I expect companies such as these to continue to prosper and pay regular dividends.Whatever you choose, I’d say one thing — the time to start is today. Investing over long periods is the most reliable way to beat the market and enjoy big gains.

OWS free university welcomes radical ideas

first_imgThe role of the State discussion, Sept. 19.WW photo: John CatalinottoIn the week following Occupy Wall Street’s one-year anniversary demonstration, occupiers convened a “free university” in Madison Square Park in New York City. From Sept. 18-22, the park became liberated space for anti-capitalist ideas to be discussed in a relaxed, outdoor environment.Growing interest in Marxist-Leninist ideology and the struggle for socialism was shown by young activists. Workers World Party was one of two Marxist groups to contribute to the university by organizing four classes, along with distributing and selling WW newspaper.Caleb Maupin and Sue Davis held a class on “Socialism, Class Struggle, and Revolution.” The class included a lively discussion of Marxism, feminism, organized labor and the history of WWP.Larry Hales and Monica Moorehead organized a class entitled “What Is the State? Who Does It Serve?” This class was very well attended, with much debate and discussion on the evolution of various forms and epochs of class rule and oppression.Sara Flounders led a class on “Why Wall Street Is War Street.” Bill Dores joined with Gary Lapao, a representative of the International League for People’s Struggles, to hold a class entitled “What Is Imperialism?”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Contrary to reports, killer of journalist Carlos Cardoso still on the run

first_imgNews Follow the news on Mozambique The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa MozambiqueAfrica RSF_en Contrary to initial claims by the Mozambican police, Aníbal “Anibalzinho” António dos Santos Junior, the convicted killer of journalist Carlos Cardoso, was not recaptured after escaping from prison for the third time on 7 December and is still on the run.“We are puzzled and worried,” Reporters Without Borders said. “How can a convict of this kind escape three times? Anibalzinho must be recaptured quickly and made to complete his sentence, and those who helped him to escape must be identified and punished.”Several prison guards reportedly helped Anibalzinho and two other inmates escape from a Maputo prison on the morning of 7 December. He escaped for the first time in September 2002, and was captured in the South African capital of Pretoria five months later. He escaped again on 10 May 2002, only to be caught by Interpol on arrival at Toronto international airport. Convicted on 20 January 2006 of being the leader of the hit squad that murdered Cardoso in 2000, Anibalzinho was sentenced to 30 years in jail.——————09.12 – Killer of journalist Carlos Cardoso re-arrested after third prison escapeReporters Without Borders today voiced relief at the re-arrest yesterday of the killer of journalist Carlos Cardoso, 36 hours after he made his third escape from Maputo’s high security prison.Anibal Antonio dos Santos Junior, “Anibalzinho” is serving a 30-year-sentence for the November 2000 murder of the investigative journalist, who was the editor of the daily Metical.Police arrested the fugitive yesterday evening on the road to Namaacha, 75 kilometres west of the capital Maputo, on the border with Swaziland. He had escaped from his cell the previous morning with the complicity of one or more prison wardens and fled along with two other prisoners.“It is vital for Carlos Cardoso’s family that he serves his full sentence,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “However this is the third time that Anibalzinho has managed to escape, with collusion from within the prison establishment. The Mozambican authorities should take this escape seriously and do their utmost to ensure his accomplices are punished. That will ensure that this unfortunate incident is not repeated”.The journalist’s killer escaped for the first time in September 2002 and was recaptured in Pretoria, South Africa, five months later. He succeeded in escaping again on 10 May 2004, before being arrested by Interpol on arrival at Toronto international airport. Anibalzinho was convicted on 20 January 2006 of being the leader of the hit squad that murdered Cardoso and sentenced to 30 years in jail.Cardoso was shot dead by two gunmen who blocked his route as he was being driven along Martires de Machava Avenue in Maputo on 22 November 2000. He was hit in the head by several bullets and died instantly. Before the murder, he was investigating the country’s biggest post-independence financial scandal: the embezzlement of the equivalent of 14 million euros from the Commercial Bank of Mozambique (BCM). In his articles, he pointed the finger at three powerful businessmen, Vicente Ramaya and the Satar brothers.

Mortgage Tech Startup Privlo Expands Into California, Serving The State’s Burgeoning Self-Employed Population

first_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Privlo, a Non-QM mortgage startup backed by Spark Capital and QED Investors, just launched in its home state of California where a growing self-employed workforce is increasingly locked out of homeownership by traditional banks. Privlo’s mortgage platform takes in a far wider range of credit criteria and unique documentation than traditional lenders to assess high quality borrowers with complicated incomes or financial histories. These segments include small business owners, entrepreneurs, self-employed individuals and seasonal or commissioned workers with spiky incomes. Where banks may shy away from strong applicants who can’t prove financial ability with simple tax returns or W2s, Privlo works with them to sort through the complexity and find a truer measure of theircreditworthiness.In a state where 1 in 6 people in the workforce are either self-employed or small business owners, traditional lending standards are creating an imbalance. “More than 90% of California’s small businesses are sole proprietorships, and it’s no secret that many in this group are totally capable of taking on a mortgage but simply can’t get approved. There’s pent up demand in every state we’ve launched, but we expect California to exceed anything we’ve seen so far,” says Privlo’s Chief Credit & Product Officer Saro Vasudevan. California cities like Berkeley and Santa Monica lead the nation, hovering around 22% selfemployment and reflecting the state’s entrepreneurial and contract-based industries like entertainment and technology.The company, which also specializes in people who have had a single negative credit event, provides mortgages to highly qualified applicants who may have a bankruptcy or foreclosure as recent as a year old, and a short sale 6 months or older. This is compared to the general standard of two years or more among traditional lenders.“We retain lifetime interest in every loan we make so we’re still quite selective. When we look past things like uneven income, we’re finding really qualified people, some even with credit scores in the high 700s with great financial capability,” says Privlo Founder and CEO Michael Slavin. “What we’re doing is more of a mind shift if you think about it. If you live here in California, you’re probably blazing your own path in oneway or another. Traditional careers are becoming a thing of the past and we believe in embracing people and their entire financial picture, however complex it is, rather than devaluing their true financial ability.”The company expects most self-employed Californians who will qualify for home loans, or “Privloans” as they are called, to come from consumer-facing industries such as entertainment, tech, food and beverage, hospitality, and health care services – sectors with variable income that make them unattractive to traditional mortgage lenders, but an ideal fit for Privlo.About PrivloLaunched in 2011 by CEO Michael Slavin, Privlo (http://www.privlo.com) provides mortgages to highquality borrowers who aren’t eligible for traditional bank loans. The founding team comes from the worlds of consumer finance, real estate and technology startups, and is backed by Spark Capital and QED Investors. Privlo is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA and currently lending in California, Colorado, Idaho, Maryland, Minnesota, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia with additional states planned in the coming months.

Foreign Central Banks Cutting Back on U.S. Mortgage-Backed Securities

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Global market turbulence has caused foreign central banks to cut back holdings of U.S. agency and mortgage-backed securities and Treasuries, according to media reports on Tuesday.Last week, data from the Federal Reserve indicated that foreign central banks had reduced holdings of agency debt and MBS at the Fed to their lowest level since early May ($285.21 billion), according to a report from Reuters. It was the sixth straight week the foreign central banks had reduced their holdings with the U.S. central bank. Last week, they experienced their largest decline ($10 billion) in more than three years.The foreign central banks’ recent sales of U.S. agency MBS and Treasuries may have been prompted by a weakening Chinese economy and fears over a federal funds target rate increase by the Fed later in the year, according to the report. Reaction from Fed policy makers on the recent U.S. stock market turbulence has been mixed; while New York Fed President Bill Dudley stated last week that a rake hike now seems “less compelling” after recent stock market declines, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard has said that the U.S. central bank is in “good shape” to raise rates and that the chances of such an increase are greater than 50 percent – and that the recent stock market volatility does not change that outlook.It is speculated among some traders that worries over a weakening global economy are driving the recent sales of U.S. Treasuries by foreign central banks that are trying to defend their currencies in anticipation of the outflow of private capital; such declines in currency would make the importing of goods such as oil and food more expensive.While some traders speculated the weakening global economy drove the foreign banks’ shedding of U.S. Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities (namely those issued by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks), the recent cuts were downplayed by other traders who say the foreign central banks have a tendency to reduce their U.S. mortgage debt-related holdings when the stock market is turbulent. The skeptics pointed out that the foreign central banks shed even more U.S. Treasuries and MBS during the European debt crisis in 2012.The reports stated that if the trend of foreign banks selling off U.S. mortgage-related debt continues, and expands, however, it will result in an in increase in costs for refinancing homes.The next meeting of the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee to determine if the Fed will raise interest rates will be September 16 an 17, after which the FOMC will have two remaining meetings in 2015. The rates have been at or near zero for a record nine years.As of August 26, foreign central bank ownership of U.S. Treasuries was $3.018 trillion, which was an increase of $5.6 billion from the week before, according to Reuters. The amount of U.S. Treasuries held by the foreign central banks is considerably larger than the amount of agency MBS they hold ($285 billion).

Reports surfaced in early July that the FHFA, conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since 2008, is seeking up to $13 billion in damages from RBS in the lawsuit.RBS attempted to have the lawsuit dismissed on the grounds that the FHFA waited too long to sue. The suit was filed in 2011, three years after the financial crisis. U.S. District Judge Alvin Thompson in the U.S. District Court, District of Connecticut ruled that the time limit for filing the suit had been extended by a law passed in the wake of the financial crisis, according to a report from Reuters.The FHFA said in an email to DS News that it would not be commenting on the judge’s ruling or the case. A spokesperson from RBS could not immediately be reached for comment.RBS was one of 18 lenders sued by the FHFA in 2011 to recoup U.S. taxpayer costs following the government’s $187.5 billion bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2008. Out of the 18 lenders the FHFA sued, 16 of them settled for a combined total of about $17 billion. Nomura Holdings took FHFA to trial in March for a case in which RBS was also a defendant. Nomura was found liable for deceiving the GSEs in the sale of $2 billion worth of mortgage-backed securities and was ordered to pay $806 million to the FHFA. 2008. The bank has appealed the verdict. The case against RBS is the last of the FHFA’s 18 lawsuits that has not either been settled or completed a trial.In June 2014, RBS agreed to pay $99.5 million to settle a separate FHFA suit claiming that the bank sold more than $2 billion worth of faulty mortgage-backed securities to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac between 2005 and 2007, the years of the “housing bubble” in the U.S.center_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Previous: PRIA Awards Two Ernst Publishing-Sponsored Scholarships Next: Are Single-Family Property Renters More Likely to Buy a Home Than Those in Apartments?  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Subscribelast_img read more

Sex offender lied to airport officials about working security for Marine One: Feds

first_imgFlorida Department of Law Enforcement(NEW YORK) — Federal prosecutors have charged Brandon Mark Magnan for falsely impersonating a federal officer after he allegedly lied to make his way past two checkpoints at Palm Beach International Airport on Sunday, prior to President Donald Trump’s departure from the airport. Magnan, 37, falsely said he was working security for Marine One — the helicopter that transports the president — and presented credentials saying he was a law enforcement officer of the United States Marine Corps, according to federal authorities.He was able to proceed to the grounds of Atlantic Aviation, which houses both Marine One and Air Force One while the president stays at his Mar-a-Lago club. Magnan, along with an unidentified male passenger, arrived on the grounds of Atlantic Aviation, which is on the southeast side of the airport, according to the criminal complaint.A Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputy noticed that Magnan was not in USMC uniform and alerted authorities on scene. A National Crime Information Center query by the U.S. Secret Service determined that Magnan was dishonorably discharged in 2010 by the Marines for his conviction at court martial for “serious offenses,” including abusive sexual conduct and forced sodomy.In a recorded interview, Magnan admitted to being dishonorably discharged and not being a member of the Marine Corps, according to the complaint. He was released on $100,000 bond Monday with conditions that he not travel outside Florida.He does not yet have a listed defense attorney. A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Florida declined to comment beyond the facts in the criminal complaint. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Brookes robbed by dire Oxford

first_imgOxford 1 Oxford Brookes 1Oxford jubilation, Brookes despair. Reactions that tell their own story of a match in which Oxford’s dark blue shirts snatched a draw that, after 90 minutes of angst, trepidation and anxiety, felt more like a victory.The pivotal, defining moment, so cruel upon Brookes, so welcomed by undeserving Oxford, came in the dying moments. Jak hazzard tangled innocuously in the area and Oxford were granted the most dubious of salvations. seemed little more than an accidental clash of heads was unbelievably rewarded with a penalty. Vince Vitali converted and iffley’s silence was transformed into shocked enrapture. Oxford’s unbeaten run miraculously remained intact, and the nightmare start of their neighbours’ prolonged.For ninety minutes on a beautiful winter’s afternoon Oxford hobbled, stalled and stumbled against a side yet to record a win this season so that, deep into injury time, it was still difficult to discern which was the team unbeaten in the league and which was the side about to sink further into the relegation zone.Before that limpest of penalties Brookes had defied their poor start to the season, producing exciting and quick football, stretching the Blues on both flanks and, with the charismatic skills of Freddie sakyendoo, at the heart of every Brooke’s move, terrifying the Oxford backline. Only a desperate challenge from paul rainsford denied the striker a clear run at goal, a theme that would continue throughout.In contrast Oxford looked flaccid, a distinction manifested in the tales of the two strikers. unlike Joel Lazarus looked increasingly ineffectual and demoralised; isolated against a mean Brookes defence. everything he tried seemed to fail. a flick in midfield went directly to a striped shirt; a pass down the line went straight out of play and a clear sight of goal remained a distant dream. Oxford created just one chance in the opening forty-five, a corner, not cleared by the visitors that could not turn in from close range. But it was to be a brief interlude in a sea of Brookes dominance.Their inevitable opener came after half an hour. corner was completely missed by Mark addeley and sakyendoo rolled the ball home. Less than a minute later Brookes almost extended their lead as inside the area, found his powerful drive deflected into Nick Baker’s arms.With the smell of blue blood Brookes surged forward and should have added at least another two before the interval. Mark elliot and were out-battled on the left and were fortunate to see a shot ripple the netting. Moments before hazzard, under pressure from the indefatigable panicked and horribly skewed a header, meant for his keeper, out for a corner. The resulting set piece caused carnage in the Oxford penalty area, with tackles and scrambled hacks at the ball flailing, the home side were relieved to see the ball float over for a goal kick.The second half saw the Blues emerge with renewed vigour, a rebirth that was quickly tempered by the visitors and a return to the lethargy of the opening period. despite vicious roars in the tunnel Oxford returned to the pitch with something of a whimper. Five minutes in and a skewed clearance from Baker fell to the feet of a Brookes striker. his curled shot was not claimed cleanly by the off-balance Baker and only on his second attempt was an embarrassing second goal averted. Sakyendoo certainly should have sealed it but his shot, from an unmarked position in the area, looped awkwardly over.There were a few signs of life from the otherwise dormant Blues, but these were rare. Left-back aaron Barkhouse came close twice in thirty seconds in the closing minutes, first having a header cleared off the line from an corner, and secondly, as he was retreating into defence, sending a dipping shot just over. such sights were, however, rare glimpses of an otherwise unimpressive Oxford side. The visitors looked relatively comfortable throughout and only the delusions of the referee, at the death, were enough to break their stranglehold. ARCHIVE: 6th week MT 2005last_img read more
