Forget the Cash ISA! I’d pick up the Lloyds share price’s 6.2% yield

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. See all posts by Harvey Jones 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Every year, millions of Britons put money into a Cash ISA, but I wonder whether they really know what they’re doing.Cashing outWhile it’s important to hold some cash for a rainy day, you can’t afford to leave too much money sitting idle. These days, you’re lucky to get more than 1% on instant access, which means the value of your money is falling in real terms.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…Once you’ve built a pot of emergency cash, you need to put your longer-term savings to work to generate a higher return. I think the best way of doing this is to invest in the stock market, either through a fund or individual FTSE 100 stocks.One of the most attractive on the index right now is Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY). Before the financial crisis, the high street bank was described as a ‘dividend machine’ because it regularly lavished investors with generous dividends. Millions used it to boost their income in retirement, and it remains one of the most traded stocks in the UK today.On the mendLloyds has spent the last decade cleaning up its act after misdemeanours during the financial crisis, turning itself into a leaner, meaner operation, cutting jobs and closing branches. It has narrowed its focus on the domestic UK economy, providing loans to small businesses, and savings, mortgages and credit cards to consumers.This should make it lower risk, although it does leave it exposed to the fortunes of the UK economy, which is one reason why the Lloyds share price struggled to grow during the political and economic uncertainty surrounding Brexit.Lloyds has worked hard to restore its dividend, which is the real attraction of investing in the stock. Right now, it’s forecast to give you income of 6.2% a year, which is five or six times the return you’ll get on an instant access Cash ISA.Rising incomeAnother attraction of dividend stocks over cash is that they aim to increase their payouts over time, which allows you to lock into a rising income. Next year, for example, Lloyds is expected to yield 6.4%. No savings account can match that. If its share price recovers, you’ll get capital growth on top, free of tax, in a Stocks and Shares ISA.Investing in shares is more risky than leaving money in cash. You should be looking to invest for a minimum five years, but preferably much longer. I think Lloyds makes a strong ‘buy and hold’ case with shares you can hang onto for decades, all the way to retirement. Keep reinvesting the dividends for growth and then you can take the proceeds as a passive income after you stop working.Lloyds isn’t perfect. If the UK economy stumbles, its share price will struggle. However, given that it trades at a bargain valuation of just 8.4 times forward earnings, you have a large safety net if that happens. Today’s low share price could be a good opportunity to buy it on the cheap. I’d pick it over a Cash ISA any day.

No savings at 50? I’d follow Warren Buffett’s advice to get rich from UK shares

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! See all posts by Harvey Jones Image source: Getty Images. Investing in UK shares is a great way to build the money you need to fund a comfortable retirement. Now could be a good time to buy them, as the FTSE 100 is still trading 20% lower due to the stock market crash.If you are 40 or 50 years old and have little or no retirement savings, you need to get cracking. This is a good opportunity to pick up top UK shares at bargain prices. If we get a second market crash, that could actually work in your favour by making them cheaper.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…The world’s most successful investor, US billionaire Warren Buffett, has always urged investors to take advantage of moments like these. As he once said: “Widespread fear is your friend as an investor because it serves up bargain purchases.”I’d buy undervalued UK sharesRight now, many UK shares are trading at significantly reduced valuations. Some are very, very cheap, for example, in the travel and banking sector, which have been exposed to the full force of the pandemic. Be careful around these. The outlook remains risky.I wouldn’t take big chances right now, given that you can find solid FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks trading at reduced valuations. Personally, I think the housebuilding sector is a good source of bargain UK shares. Pharmaceutical companies, such as AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline, consumer goods specialists Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser Group, and spirits giant Diageo are all high on my watchlist.You could wait until economic conditions are more settled before buying, but the danger is you’ll miss those bargain prices. By delaying, you’ll also miss out on the dividend income paid by your chosen UK shares.Get rich and retire earlyBuffett is clear on the importance of taking your chances when they arise: “Opportunities come infrequently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thimble.”I’d be looking for solid UK shares that have been sold off in the market crash. Then I’d aim to hold them for a minimum of five years but, ideally, far longer. That allows you to build the income you need to fund an enjoyable retirement.As Buffett put it: “We’re buying businesses to own for 20 or 30 years. We think the 20- and 30-year outlook is not changed by the coronavirus”If you are in your 40s and 50s, I wouldn’t hang around. You need to start saving right now. The good news is that there are plenty of bargains out there. That’s why I’d go shopping for bargain-priced UK shares today, rather than wait to see if they’re cheaper tomorrow.If the market does crash again, I know what I’d do. Buy more UK shares. Then sit back and wait for markets to recover, as history shows they always do in the end. It’s what Buffett’s been doing for decades.

Youth ignite new anti-war movement in Baltimore

first_imgOver thirty young students and workers gathered on May 5 at the entrance to Johns Hopkins University in a demonstration to commemorate the Catonsville Nine, who are part of Baltimore’s anti-war history.Fifty years ago, nine Catholic activists stole nearly four hundred draft cards from the local selective service board in Catonsville, Md., and burned them with homemade napalm. Their action saved four hundred people from being shipped off to fight an illegal war in Vietnam.The May 5 action marked the formation of Youth Against War and Racism (YAWR), whose members dedicate themselves to taking up the anti-imperialist, anti-war mantle. Members of YAWR are affiliated with groups like the People’s Power Assembly, Bayan USA, the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (US), Hopkins Tzedek, Hopkins Students for a Democratic Society and Workers World Party.YAWR demonstrators marched over two miles from the university campus to the Maryland State Armory, where the National Guard secured their weapons during the 2015 Baltimore uprisings against the police killing of Freddie Gray. At the armory, YAWR members tore up and burned military recruitment materials and a U.S. flag — symbols of racism and imperialism — in the tradition of the Catonsville Nine.“It’s becoming more and more crucial that young people help ignite a new anti-war movement,” explained Miranda Bachman, a member of YAWR and Workers World Party. “Especially in Maryland, where weapons developers reign.”Weapons corporations and federal security agencies based in Maryland and D.C. are huge funders of weapons research programs in Maryland colleges and universities. It is no coincidence that their CEOs and top brass sit on the boards of directors of many university foundations.Now, more than ever, YAWR is seeking to raise anti-war consciousness, combat imperialist propaganda, and be in solidarity with the nations and people who oppose the U.S. war machine.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
