Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to boost your ISA millionaire chances

first_img Enter Your Email Address 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. Image source: Getty Images I think 2020 is providing a great chance for those hoping to become ISA millionaires. Now, you might read talk of millionaire ambitions from time to time, and you might think it’s a bit far-fetched. But estimates suggest there are already 1,000 ISA millionaires in the UK. That’s over a period of only 20 years, starting with PEPs, which were introduced in 1999 and later converted to ISAs.That’s proof that you actually can do it, by taking advantage of two key things. The tax saving is one, but it’s not the most important. No, what really does the trick is the magic of compounding. What that means is that you reinvest all the profits from your investments every year, and let it all build up… and up and up.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…With a Stocks and Shares ISA, that means letting your dividends accumulate and then buying more shares. Talking of compounding, this is a good point to mention a Cash ISA. And, specifically, how bad they are. To make compounding work, you do need to achieve a certain minimum return each year. It’s critically important that you first beat inflation, and then any extra returns above that will translate to actual profit in real terms.Which is the best ISA?With a Cash ISA, you’d do well to get above 1% per year. The UK inflation rate has dropped to around zero right now, so that is actually positive, if only briefly. But we’re obviously hit by the Covid-19 crisis right now. And over the slightly longer term, the UK inflation rate has been running at around 2%.There’s only one way you can end up with a million pounds, adjusted for inflation, from a Cash ISA that doesn’t match inflation. That’s to invest the equivalent of more than a million and see it dwindle, which is no way to investment success.The UK stock market, by contrast, has provided an average total return (that’s share price growth plus dividends) of 4.9% above inflation for around a century. And I see no reason to think that’s going to change over the next hundred years.If you could invest the full £20,000 per year in a Stocks and Shares ISA, and you get that average annual return of 4.9% above inflation, you’d reach your inflation-adjusted million in 26 years. Over a lifetime, that’s really not very long – but £20,000 per year is a big investment.It’s a lot easier if you’re a younger investor with, say, 40 years at your disposal. To reach the target million in 40 years at the same rate of return, you’d need to invest around £8,280 per year. That’s £690 per month, and a lot more realistic for many more people.Why now?But why do I suggest now could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? The length of time you invest in an ISA is key, and the longer the better. But the early days are more important, and better returns in the first few years can make a much bigger difference than towards the end.So in 2020, starting when the stock market is down could give you an extra boost. Especially if you make the effort to invest as much as you can in the first few years. 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.

Second Harvest delivers a Christmas miracle

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Benefits Connection offers holiday hope by Erika Spence of Second Harvest Food Bank Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Sometimes, when everything seems to be going well, despite our best efforts, life goes awry. Most of us can handle one or two hiccups at a time, like when it’s raining and there’s an accident on 1-4 at rush hour and then you spill coffee on your shirt.Other times, the problems are more complex and you reach a breaking point. Just days before Christmas, Joann found herself at the end of her rope. Hungry, dizzy and in need of hope.Joann previously participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program(SNAP), also known as food stamps. The program allowed her to purchase fresh meats, produce and other grocery items at her local supermarket when times were tough. After she found a roommate to help with rent and other bills, her financial situation changed and she canceled her assistance last spring.Life was going well again, until recently. Joann suffered a series of unfortunate events this fall. First, her home was damaged by Hurricane Irma. Then, her roommate moved out before paying the last month’s rent. Joann fell behind on repair bills and living expenses. She didn’t have any money left to buy food. She was in desperate need of help.When she hadn’t eaten in two weeks – and had lost 17 pounds – she turned to Karen, one of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida’s Benefits Connection Specialists, for assistance.Karen offered to help Joann reapply for SNAP and looked up an emergency food pantry near her home. When Karen looked up Joann’s status, the account was still active. Joann had a balance available immediately.“We cried together,” Karen recalls. “It was a holiday miracle.”The Benefits Connection team offers SNAP application assistance, advice and support to working families, seniors, veterans and people with disabilities, at locations in Orange and Brevard Counties. For every $5 in new SNAP benefits, $9 in economic activity is generated in the community.For more information on SNAP or to meet with a Benefits Connection Specialist, visit www.feedhopenow.org/how_help_benefits.Related posts:SNAP brings HOPE to Henry Half of all Children Receive Food Stamp Benefits Faces of Hunger this Holiday Season Story of Hope and Courage: Meet Chelle Federal Budget & the Farm Bill Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address!

Komen this Sunday.Ann Louden, the chair for Frogs for the Cure and a nine-year cancer survivor, has been planning this year’s music video since last November. She said she is excited to film the last portion of the video with the TCU community.This year’s music video will feature the song, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” performed by Luke Wade and Mia Z from NBC’s the Voice.Louden said that when choosing the song, she wanted something that was going to have a good message as well as a good melody.“I dream up what is it that I think could work and what song might fit that,” Said Louden. “I then have to figure out how I get that song and create a story board for that song. “Wade said that he thinks the song has a good message and speaks volumes to the people fighting breast cancer.“If there’s something that you want, something that you need and if you have passion for something, there’s no obstacle great enough to keep you from it,” said Wade.Wade said he was happy to perform for this year’s music video, not only because both of his grandmothers suffered from breast cancer, but also because he likes working for a good cause.“For me, it’s something that I’m going to do and for other people who want to join me, who can help me make my voice louder, and make my affect on the world greater, I’m happy to be a part of that bigger, greater cause,” said Wade.Louden said that she hopes to get 2,000 participants to help make this music video possible.“It’s all about making sure we have a finished product that is fabulous, that all the details get met and that people have a great time,” said Louden. “But most importantly is that the survivors feel empowered and that we bring them a sense of community and thank them for being courageous and brave.”People participating in the music video are being asked to wear the 2015 Frogs for the Cure T-shirt, which can be purchased at the TCU Barnes and Noble Bookstore for $15.The event will begin in the campus recreation center at 1:30 p.m. and end in the campus commons at 4:30 p.m.Participants can still sign up for the video by going online to www.frogsforthecure.tcu.edu.

St Peter’s students buy Wahoo sign

first_imgStudents from St Peter’s have bought Wahoo’s sign, after the club closed its doors for the last time on November 1.Anna Harris, George Fagan, James Povey and Rob Smillie established a GoFundMe page to raise money from Peter’s JCR, and reached their goal within four hours. The group were quoted £400 by the club, which closed last Monday after its Fuzzy Ducks “The Exorcist” Halloween Special.The sold-out event, held at both Atik and Wahoo, was the last chance for Oxford students to enjoy a night out at the latter, before the site between Park End Street and Hythe Bridge Street is redeveloped.Queues for Wahoo began at 9.30pm and continued into the early hours of the morning, with the event finishing at 5am.In a post on the JCR Facebook page, George Fagan wrote, “We are speechless. In under 4 hours we have raised the money and purchased the sign. Thanks so much to everyone who has donated, especially the Freshers, your experience at Wahoo may have been fleeting but I’m glad it had touched your hearts as much as it has ours.”St Peter’s second-year Beth Chaplow said,”Wahoo was a regular staple of the weekly calendar for Peterites, and I really think it shows the spirit of the college that we all chipped in so quickly to purchase this monument to fun.”St Peter’s JCR President, Imogen Learmonth told Cherwell, “Peter’s is a family, and we welcomed Wahoo into our clan long ago. And if, indeed, family really does mean nobody gets left behind, then we couldn’t leave a fallen soldier to be forgotten.”The college’s purchase of the sign strengthens its link to Wahoo, and comes after Wahoo DJ Ollie East was made an honoury member of the JCR last year. St Peter’s students have famously enjoyed Wahoo nights since the club joined Oxford’s nightlife scene in 2010.”last_img read more
