Retirement savings: I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares today to become an ISA millionairecenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Peter Stephens Peter Stephens | Saturday, 6th June, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE The FTSE 100’s recent market crash may have hurt your attempts to become an ISA millionaire in the short run. However, its current price level could present a more attractive buying opportunity than was available at the start of 2020. As such, there may be a wider range of attractive businesses that have the potential to deliver strong capital growth in the coming years.Clearly, making a million from the FTSE 100 is unlikely to be a fast process. But through focusing your capital on undervalued businesses with growth potential, you could generate index-beating returns that boost your retirement savings prospects.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…FTSE 100 return potentialThe FTSE 100 has an excellent track record of delivering high returns. For example, since its inception over 36 years ago, it has recorded an annualised total return of around 8%. Therefore, it has been a relatively sound means of growing your retirement savings.For example, investing £450 per month since the FTSE 100’s inception in 1984 at an annual return of 8% would have produced a portfolio that is valued at over £1m today.Clearly, many investors may not have been able to invest £450 per month, or may have had a shorter time period prior to their retirement. However, the example serves to show that the index has the capacity to deliver a seven-figure portfolio for investors who have many years left until they plan to retire.Buying cheap stocksOf course, beating the FTSE 100’s return over the long run to enhance your portfolio’s growth rate is possible. The index’s cyclicality suggests that buying when shares are cheap and potentially selling them when they are expensive is a sound strategy through which to capitalise on the index’s bull markets and bear markets. Indeed, value investors such as Warren Buffett have bought stocks at the lowest points in the stock market’s cycle, and have been able to generate relatively high returns.At the present time, many FTSE 100 companies trade on low valuations that are significantly below their historic averages in some cases. Buying them today may not deliver high returns in the short run owing to the uncertain economic outlook. However, over the coming years the index is very likely to not only recover from its current lows, but go on to deliver new record highs.Quality businessesBuying cheap stocks can be a risky move, since in some cases they may be priced at low levels due to weak finances or a downbeat outlook. As such, it is crucial for investors to consider the quality of the companies they are buying.Through assessing factors such as debt levels, cash flow and a company’s growth strategy, it is possible to unearth the most attractive stocks in the FTSE 100. Purchasing a diverse range of them while they are trading at low levels could produce high returns that boost your retirement savings and increase the chances of you obtaining a seven-figure portfolio. 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.

To improve digital well-being, put your phone down and talk to…

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply By Kostadin Kushlev, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Georgetown University and first published on and Google recently announced features in their forthcoming mobile operating systems designed to “reduce interruptions and manage screen time.” Android and iOS users alike will soon be able to guard their sleep against digital temptations, easily activate “Do Not Disturb” mode when needed, and get prompted to stop when they have used their favorite apps beyond a personally chosen time limit.As a psychological scientist who has been studying the effects of mobile technology on well-being for the past five years, I can only welcome these new tools. Indeed, a great deal of research has documented how smartphones might be harming people’s sleep quality or distracting them from nondigital activities. In my own experimental research, my collaborators and I have found consistent evidence that smartphones can also distract users from the family and friends right in front of them, such as when sharing a meal or spending time with their children.In situations that clearly call for limiting digital distraction – like playtime with kids – Apple’s and Google’s new tools will offer a convenient solution. Yet, my research suggests that smartphones may be making us less happy in a much wider range of social situations than we might expect.The limitations of choiceThe crux of the matter is that people, as it turns out, fail to judge what economists call “opportunity costs” – the value of what someone gives up when they make a choice to do one thing and not another.For example, in a series of studies I conducted with Jason Proulx and Elizabeth Dunn at the University of British Columbia, we found that people neglect a key side effect of relying on their phones for information: They miss out on chances to boost their sense of social connectedness. Using a mobile map app, for example, obviates the need to rely on other people, removing the opportunity to experience the kindness of a stranger who helpfully provides directions to a store or movie theater.Just put the phone downIt is easy to see how completely forgoing social interaction for technological convenience can hurt someone’s social well-being. But most people use their phones precisely to socialize – often while simultaneously socializing with others in person. Perhaps it’s having a drink with a co-worker while also Snapchatting with a friend, texting with a partner, or even setting up a new date through Tinder or Grindr. One may think that socializing with more people simultaneously is better.But my collaborator, Samantha Heintzelman, and I recently found that combining digital and face-to-face socializing is not as enjoyable as putting down the phone and just spending time together.In a study at the University of Virginia, we tracked the social behavior and well-being of 174 millennials over the course of a week. At five random times each day, we sent each person a one-minute survey to complete on their mobile phone. We asked what they had been doing in the previous 15 minutes, including whether they were socializing in person or digitally (such as by texting or using social media). We also asked how close or distant they were feeling to other people, and how good or bad they were feeling overall.We weren’t particularly surprised to find that people felt better and more connected during times when they only socialized face-to-face, as compared with when they weren’t socializing at all. This fit with decades of existing research. We didn’t find any benefits of digital socializing over not socializing at all, though our study wasn’t designed to explore that distinction.We did find, however, that when socializing face-to-face only, people felt happier and more connected to others than when they were socializing only through their phones. This is notable because the people in our study were the generation of so-called “digital natives,” who had been using smartphones, tablets and computers to interact since very young ages. Even for them, the benefits gleaned from good old face-to-face talking exceeded the well-being of digitally mediated communication.Most critically, people felt worse and less connected when they mixed face-to-face with digital socializing, compared to when they solely socialized in person. Our results suggest that digital socializing doesn’t add to, but in fact subtracts from, the psychological benefits of nondigital socializing.Could your device help you avoid this?, CC BY-SAGiving people a fighting chanceAs people’s useful digital devices start to provide more and better options for limiting screen time and staving the flow of digital interruptions, deciding when to use those powers is neither obvious nor intuitive. Behavioral science provides some promising solutions to this predicament.Rather than having to decide activity by activity when not to be interrupted, people could make Do Not Disturb the default, only seeing notifications when they want to. My recent research – with Nicholas Fitz and Dan Ariely at Duke University’s Center for Advanced Hindsight – suggests, however, that never receiving notifications hurts well-being by increasing fear of missing out. The best way is the middle way: We found that setting the phone to deliver batches of notifications three times a day optimized well-being. To set their users up for optimal psychological benefits from both their digital and nondigital activities, Google and Apple could make batching notifications easier.Google and Apple should also expand their proactive recommendations for managing interruptions. The iPhone, for example, already offers the option to automatically turn on Do Not Disturb while driving, and in the forthcoming features, while sleeping. The growing evidence on how smartphones are compromising well-being during social interactions suggests that social and family time also warrants protection from digital disturbance.People spend more time in the company of their digital gadgets than with friends and even romantic partners. It is only fair that these devices should learn more about what makes people happy, and provide a chance to reclaim the happiness lost to digital activity – and from the companies that need people’s attention to thrive.

Planting Season Wrapping Up, Wheat Harvest Beginning Soon in SW Indiana

Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron farms near Evansville and he says after patching in a few spots earlier this week, he’s ready to put the planter away.“We’re looking for a good inch-rain because we’re pretty dry and we could use a rain…Most people around, if they aren’t done, they’re pretty close. There are a few acres in the Wabash River and Ohio River bottoms that need to get wrapped up.”Unfortunately, they didn’t get much rain at all Tuesday.Kron says wheat harvest will begin here soon.“Wheat is moving along really fast here. We’ve got a week’s worth of nice, sunny weather, so sometime between the 15th and 20th of June I think you’ll see a bunch of wheat being harvested around this area too.”Despite the lack of rainfall, Kron is pleased with crop development so far.“We planted a lot of early April beans that laid in the ground for a long time. I walked some of those fields the last few days and they look pretty good, I’m pretty happy…The heat the past few days has really turned on the corn and it’s greened up. Early, it was pretty yellow and pale looking.”Kron continued saying, “As I walk around our crops and see our neighbors’ crops, I feel pretty good. There’s a lot of good opportunity here for a good crop.” Previous articleHow Indiana Worked its Way Through Recent Meat Supply Chain ChallengeNext articleHow Indiana Worked its Way Through Recent Meat Supply Chain Challenge on the HAT Friday Podcast Eric Pfeiffer Planting Season Wrapping Up, Wheat Harvest Beginning Soon in SW Indianalast_img read more

Greg Abbott to close multiple ballot drop-off sitesOn Monday, the federal appeals court warranted Gov. Greg Abbott’s order to limit counties to one mail-in ballot drop-off location, according to USA Today.The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Abbott “expanded voting options” by suspending a state law that required mail-in ballots to be hand delivered only on Election Day.Judge Stuart Kyle Duncan wrote this order “effectively gives voters 40 extra days to hand-deliver a marked mail-in ballot to an early voting clerk.”Civil and voting rights groups claimed Abbott’s order would make voting harder, especially for elderly and disabled voters who rely on mail-in balloting or are vulnerable to COVID-19.European Union receives permission to impose tariffs on U.S. in ‘long-running aircraft battle’In this Sept. 17, 2013, file photo, a Boeing 787-9 takes off at Paine Field in Everett, Wash. Boeing said Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020, that it will consolidate production of its two-aisle 787 jetliner in South Carolina and shut down the original assembly line for the plane near Seattle. The company said the move will start in mid-2021. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, File)The European Union received permission from the World Trade Organization today to impose annual tariffs on $4 billion worth of U.S. products, according to the New York Times.This decision stemmed from retaliation against American plane maker Boeing, who received illegal subsidies. This decision could result in “levies on American airplanes, agricultural products and other goods.”Last year, the Trump administration imposed a parallel case against Europe’s plane maker Airbus, retaliating up to $7.5 billion of European exports annually.The tariffs would come at a difficult time amid the coronavirus pandemic, forcing aircraft companies to cut more than 10% of global workforces.Both Boeing and Airbus plan to cut over 30,000 jobs in all due to the steep decline in travel.Johnson & Johnson pauses COVID-19 vaccine trials due to an ‘unexplained illness’ in one volunteerPharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson paused the advanced clinical trials of its Phase 3 coronavirus vaccine after one volunteer developed an unexplained illness, according to CNN.Though the company did not comment on specifics of the illness, it said the participant is “being reviewed and evaluated by the ENSEMBLE independent Data Safety Monitoring board as well as our internal clinical and safety physicians.”One point of advanced clinical trials is to discover the dangerous side effects of vaccines. Trials are halted when side affects flair up in participants.This is the second Phase 3 vaccine to be paused in the U.S. so far. Federal officials are hopeful for quick completion, as the vaccine only requires one dose. Facebook Linkedinlast_img read more
