Buy-to-let could plummet in 2021. I’d buy these assets instead

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Today’s newswires present us with a jigsaw puzzle of stories that could lead you to the conclusion that buy-to-let investing has become risky.Indeed, buy-to-let could be heading for a blow-off top in trading parlance. In other words, the best days for buy-to-let investors could be about to peak and the returns from the activity could plummet in 2021 and beyond.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…Why I’d avoid buy-to-letOne of today’s headlines from Reuters trumpets that UK house price growth has just hit an 18-year high. But, ominously, the report goes on to explain that the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) thinks the outlook has darkened for the sector.There’s been a post-lockdown boom in Britain’s housing market and that will have pushed up the selling prices of buy-to-let property. Of course, capital gains are part of the overall return we might expect from a buy-to-let investment over time.But RICS expects significant job losses over the coming months to hurt demand for property despite the availability of cheap mortgage finance. However, prime minister Boris Johnson said this week he wants to make it easier for first-time homebuyers to take out a mortgage.And, in fairness, although RICS thinks the outlook has darkened for the sector, it still believes the increased sales will continue for the rest of 2020. Although RICS’s gauge of sales expectations for the next 12 months declined in September close to March’s record low.Indeed, expectations are for choppy demand. But it’s fair to say there are voices in the industry that don’t expect the latest data to cause a fall in house prices. Meanwhile, other headlines tell us the UK jobless rate reached 4.5%, which is higher than expectations in the three months to August.Balancing that news, another headline explains the Bank of England is asking banks how ready they are for sub-zero interest rates. Indeed, higher interest rates will not be arriving anytime soon. And low interest rates help to prop up house prices.Assets I’d invest in right nowIt’s a mixed and confusing picture. But with property prices so stretched when it comes to affordability, I’m inclined to be wary of the downside potential in the buy-to-let sector. Instead, I’d invest in shares and share-backed assets such as funds, trackers and investment trusts.When you consider the similarities between long-term investments in property and shares, it’s clear that share ownership is a viable alternative to property ownership. Both assets have the potential to deliver capital appreciation, and they both pay investors income. With property, it’s the yield from rents, and with shares, it’s the yield from dividends.However, shares come out on top for me. That’s because every share is backed by a business with the potential to create value. And that’s unlike the passive rising and falling prices of property.Right now, I’d look at investment opportunities such as Lindsell Train Investment Trust and Blackrock Throgmorton Trust. I’d also consider tracker funds such as HSBC FTSE 250 Index, Vanguard FTSE 100 Index and UBS S&P 500. On top of that, a few carefully selected shares backed by high-quality underlying businesses would sit well in a long-term portfolio.

Is Rolls-Royce among the best UK shares to buy for 2021 to double my money?

first_img See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Kirsteen Mackay | Wednesday, 9th December, 2020 | More on: NUM RR Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) is having a tough year, but the promise of an imminent vaccine has revived its share price from a decade low of less than 40p in October to £1.29 today. Buyers at the low have not just doubled their money, but more than tripled it! But that’s what volatility can do. It can also halve my money if I’m not careful.As for Rolls-Royce in 2021, buying the shares at today’s price may well lead me to double my money. But it’s not all plain sailing from here on out, and as a potential investor, there are quite a few things I need to consider. 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…Should I buy Rolls-Royce shares now?The name Rolls-Royce is synonymous with quality engineering. It’s a company with a strong heritage and close ties to the British establishment. Unfortunately, Rolls-Royce shares have been hammered by Covid-19 and are racking up an increasing pile of debt to help it ride out the storm. This is worrying, and while investors have been backing the company in recent weeks, a prolonged downturn could mean further volatility for Rolls-Royce shares. With negative earnings and no dividend yield, there’s not much to appeal to a value investor other than hope. It can begin earning again as soon as flights are back to business as usual, but this is likely to take time.It’s selling its civil nuclear instrumentation and control business to French company Framatome. This doesn’t include its civil nuclear business or its small modular reactor plans, which may be a good thing. It’s recently floated the idea of creating 6,000 jobs in the next five years on the back of a plan to build 16 small nuclear reactors. While nuclear power is a highly controversial area, it has the potential to tackle the climate crisis. This is because it can create cost-effective clean energy. I think I probably could double my money with Rolls-Royce, but it will take time and it may not happen in 2021. There may also be less volatile options available. I like the chances of Rolls-Royce lasting for the long term, but I’d require nerves of steel to buy these UK shares just now.Can I double my money with Numis?Numis (LSE:NUM) is a £356m company. It operates as an independent institutional stockbroker and corporate advisor to public and private companies. The Numis share price has a volatile history, but 2020 has been fairly steady, other than its sharp crash and speedy recovery from March to May. Considering the economic uncertainty facing the world and especially Britain, I think businesses will continue to seek professional guidance. With that in mind, I think its outlook for 2021 is good too.Since November 1, the Numis share price has climbed nearly 14%. In its investment banking division, M&A activity is likely to keep increasing and IPOs remain surprisingly popular. It has a price-to-earnings ratio of 11, earnings per share are almost 30p and its dividend yield is 3.8%. After the conclusion of Brexit, the UK government wants Britain to continue to be the financial hub of excellence it’s renowned for. I think this will bode well for Numis in the coming years. I don’t know if I can double my money with Numis shares in 2021, but I’d consider buying them as a long-term investment and for the dividend.

This day in Florida history: Skyway Bridge collapses

first_img We used to go out into the Gulf of Mexico nine miles out to a ship that used to be a Russian hospital ship that had been sold and made into a casino. We used to go out at John’s Pass at Madeira Beach, on the west coast on a fast ferry boat that took us out nine miles into international waters where you could gamble on the big ship anchored out there that was 5 stories high and then stay out there as long as you wanted. These fast ferry boats where coming and going day and night multiple times a day and night. Once as we got back to John’s Pass our ferry hit the pilings that were in the channel as the wind had gotten rough. I thought about the ship that hit the Sunshine Bridge. It was minor, but kind of scary…….. May 9, 2017 at 8:31 pm Reply Mama Mia Mama Mia That lone survivor of the bridge accident, Wesley MacIntire, actually drove over the bridge again, and he and his wife tossed 35 white carnations into the, to honor the others that had died, and he was the last to drive over the old bridge before it was demolished……If I had of survived that driving off into the waters below, I WOULD OF NEVER EVER, GOT BACK ON THAT BRIDGE AND DRIVE OVER IT AGAIN!!!!!!! Please enter your comment!

The collision caused six cars, a truck, and a Greyhound bus to fall 150 feet into the water, killing 35 people.One man, Wesley MacIntire, survived the fall when his pickup truck landed on the deck of the Summit Venture before falling into the bay. He sued the company that owned the ship and settled for $175,000 in 1984. The pilot of the ship, John Lerro, was cleared of wrongdoing by both a state grand jury and a Coast Guard investigation. The south main pier (the one that required reinforcement before completion) withstood the ship strike without significant damage. It was the second pier to the south of it that was destroyed, a secondary pier that was not designed to withstand a large ship strike.After the Summit Venture disaster, the southbound span was used as a temporary fishing pier and the northbound span was converted back to carry one lane in either direction until the current bridge opened. Before the old bridge was demolished and hauled away in barges, MacIntire (the only survivor in the collapse) was the last person to drive over it. He was accompanied by his wife, and when they reached the top of the bridge, they dropped 35 white carnations into the water, one for each person who died in the disaster. Both the main spans of both the intact northbound bridge and the damaged southbound bridge were demolished in 1993 and the approaches for both old spans were made into the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park. These approaches sit 1⁄2 mile (800 m) to the south and west of the current bridge. The approaches of the 1950 span were demolished in 2008.Governor Bob Graham’s idea for the design of the current bridge won out over other proposals, including a tunnel (deemed impractical due to Florida’s high water table) and a simple reconstruction of the broken section of the old bridge that would not have improved shipping conditions. The new bridge’s main span is 50% wider than the old bridge. The piers of the main span and the approaches for 1⁄4 mile (400 m) in either direction are surrounded by large concrete barriers, called “dolphins“, that can protect the bridge piers from collisions by ships larger than the Summit Venture like tankers, container ships, and cruise ships. May 9, 2017 at 8:18 pm After that we had to go to St. Pete at the marina and get ferried from there, and we got to ride out under the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the newer one. You could really see the huge “dolphins” or concrete barriers. to keep the ships from hitting the newer bridge. We got to see real dolphins out there too circling and jumping, and it was a fun experience just riding out nine miles to the ship. We would come and go day and night. They served beer and snacks that was free on the ferry, and talking with others was a lot of fun going out there…….the Jewel Casino ship filed bankruptcy I heard and shut down operations. Their fuel bill was enormous for filling the ferry boats up constantly. They didn’t even charge for the ferry rides. It was so much fun, and we could wander around and get lost on the big ship. They had plenty of business. On the east coast you only have to go out 3 miles into international waters to gamble. Oh, remember when this happened! My husband, my mother, and I used to go places and several times we would drive over that bridge, the one that the section fell after the ship hit the supports of the bridge. I would close my eyes and get a strange feeling. I really feared that high bridge, and also the one that was in Savannah, GA., an old high bridge. When the Sunshine Bridge accident happened, I got a eerie feeling. Later on, we drove over the replacement bridge, and I still didn’t like it, but it was not as scary.

Rugby World Cup Winners – New Zealand 1987

first_imgThursday Sep 8, 2011 Rugby World Cup Winners – New Zealand 1987 On the eve of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, we take a nostalgic look back to the last time the All Blacks won the tournament, which is incidentally also the last time they hosted it, nearly 25 years ago in 1987. This brilliant documentary takes us through the build up and various rounds of the tournament from the players’ and fans perspective. It was the amateur era back then, so things were very different but the passion and belief, as well as the pressure of a nation, was very much the same as it is today.Stars were born as the likes of John Kirwan and Sean Fitzpatrick established themselves and match winners, while halfback David Kirk stepped up so manfully to take over the captaincy after Andy Dalton had been injured. When Dalton returned, Fitzpatrick kept him out the side with good form, so Kirk stayed on to become an intergral part of New Zealand’s success.It was the inaugral tournament and as you will see, was very much a shock to the system for some of the players. While it was nothing like New Zealand 2011 will be like, it was far larger than anyone had imagined at the time. Having said that, there was a brilliant amateur factor to it all, with Zinzan Brooke talking about how he went to watch some kids playing rugby before the final, and then the monday after winning, most of them were ready to go back to their jobs bright and early.Current World Champions South Africa weren’t at the tournament due to politcal unrest and sanctions, but Australia, New Zealand, France, England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland were joined by nine invited nations. The qualifying process as we know it today was not in place. That resulted in five of the current Rugby World Cup records for highest scores taking place in that tournament, in 1987.Against Italy, the All Blacks racked up a 70-6 win and those on hand witnessed one of the greatest ever solo tries seen on a rugby field, scored by John Kirwan as he glided through the defence from a restart. That was just one of many great moments from back then. They then beat Fiji 74-13, Argentina 46-15, Scotland 30-3, Wales 49-6 in the semi final, and then France 29-9 in the final.It’s a brilliant show that I’d highly recommend watching, so if you have an hour to spare, make sure you kick back to catch up on the last time the best team in the world won the Rugby World Cup.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO If you can get your head around it, these… 47 WEEKS AGO You’ve never seen any Rugby World Cup drop… 49 WEEKS AGO TOP 10: Rugby World Cup 2015 was filled with… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The division bench judgment may be read here]The Allahabad High Court has dismissed a writ petition seeking police protection filed by a married couple.This is after the Court noted that the girl was a Muslim by birth and she has converted her religion to Hinduism, just a month before the marriage was solemnized.This clearly reveals that the conversion has taken place only for the purpose of marriage, said Justice Mahesh Chandra Tripathi. The judge referred to a 2014 judgment in Noor Jahan Begum @ Anjali Mishra & Anr. v. State of U.P. & Ors., in which it was observed that conversion just for the purpose of marriage is unacceptable.Taking note of this, the Court dismissed the writ petition saying that it is not inclined to interfere in the matter under Article 226 of Constitution of India. In Noor Jahan Begum, the Allahabad High Court had dismissed a batch of Writ Petitions which were filed praying for protection as a married couple as they had tied the knot after the girls got their religion converted from Hindu to Islam and then performed the Nikah. The issue considered in the said case was “Whether conversion of religion of a Hindu girl at the instance of a Muslim boy, without any knowledge of Islam or faith and belief in Islam and merely for the purpose of Marriage (Nikah) is valid?”Answering the question in negative and reiterating the Supreme Court’s stand in the case of Lily Thomas v. Union of India, the Court observed, “A conversion of religion by an individual to Islam can be said to be bonafide if he/she is major and of sound mind and embraces Islam by his/her own freewill and because of his/her faith and belief in the oneness of God (Allah) and prophetic character of Mohamed. If a conversion is not inspired by religion feeling and under gone for its own sake, but is resorted merely with object of creating a ground for some claim of right or as a device adopted for the purpose to avoid marriage or to achieve an object without faith and belief in the unity of God (Allah) and Mohamed to be his prophet, the conversion shall not be bonafide. In case of a religion conversion there should be a change of heart and honest conviction in the tenets of new religion in lieu of tenets of the original religion.”However, some single benches have granted police protection to the couples (even if it was a conversion case) observing that they were otherwise prima-facie of marriageable age who are entitle to live at the place and with the person of their choice. In such orders, a condition is also seen imposed to apply for registration of their marriage in accordance with the provisions of the Uttar Pradesh Hindu Marriage Registration Rules,1973/The Special Marriage Act,1954.Also Read the division bench judgment overruling this order : “Right To Choose A Partner Of Choice A Fundamental Right”: Allahabad High Court Says The Judgments Which Held “Conversion For The Purpose Of Marriage Only” Not Good Law Click here to Read/Download Order  Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Car firm drives calls for consultation law change

first_img The dramatic sale and break-up of Rover by BMW has sparked calls for more consultation rights for staff in the UK.The Industrial Society last week called for a stronger law, arguing that a loophole must be closed.Unions backed the call, and urged the Government to end its opposition to planned European measures.Industrial Society chief executive Will Hutton complained that under UK law consultation on business transfers do not have to take place when, as in the sale of Rover to Alchemy, it is conducted through a sale of shares.“UK legislation on consultation clearly has to be reviewed,” he said. “It must be regarded as weak, given what has happened and given the comparison with German law.”The society will conduct its own review and consult with relevant parties. Hutton, who is highly influential in the Labour party, will then draw up proposals for change.The MSF union has already lodged a formal complaint with the European Commission, arguing that British law is in breach of the Collective Redundancies directive.Roger Lyons, general secretary of the MSF, slammed Tony Blair and Stephen Byers for caving in to the business lobby by opposing planned European laws.“The Government is obviously naive if it believes businesses act in the interest of the public good. They act in their own interest, and that is why we need to have regulation of multinationals, and we need to have planned regulation across the European Community.“If a disaster like Rover is to be avoided in the future we must have proper partnership consultations to give us an opportunity to seek alternatives to mass redundancy.”In the Rover sale Byers and Blair were in the same position as the employees in knowing nothing about BMW’s plans, despite the pledge of £152m government money to help redevelopment of Longbridge.Labour MPs and trade union leaders have continually expressed surprise that ministers have opposed European consultation rights (see p1).  Union count is 9,500• The MSF union has claimed that up to 9,500 Rover jobs are at risk. It said an internal source revealed that redundancies spread across the company could see 3,500 jobs go at the Longbridge plant, 1,500 at Swindon and 2,000 at the R&D centre at Gaydon in Warwicksire.www.indsoc.co.uk www.msf.org.uk By Philip Whiteley Related posts:No related photos.
