No savings at 40? I’d use the Warren Buffett method to retire on a growing passive income 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. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. Retiring on a growing passive income may be a more realistic prospect than many UK investors realise. After all, the stock market has a long track record of growth that can turn even modest regular investments or lump sums into surprisingly large nest eggs over the long run.Furthermore, following a value investing strategy such as that used by Warren Buffett could produce even greater returns. Through buying high-quality companies when they trade at low prices, an investor can generate market-beating returns that have a positive impact on their financial future.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…Making a passive income from a standing startIndividuals who do not have any retirement savings may be concerned about their capacity to make a passive income in older age. After all, the State Pension is unlikely to provide a sufficient level of income to sustain even the most frugal of lifestyles.However, starting to invest in the stock market now could lead to a large nest egg from which an income can be drawn that supplements the State Pension. For example, the FTSE 250 has produced annualised total returns of around 9% over the past 20 years. Assuming a 40-year old with no retirement savings achieves a similar rate of return on a £500 monthly investment would produce a nest egg valued at £760,000.From this portfolio, a 4% annual withdrawal would provide a passive income of over £30,000. Such a withdrawal would also mean that an investor’s capital can continue to grow to rise in value to provide a growing income in older age. This may become increasingly important in the coming years if inflation rises to a higher level.Following Warren Buffett’s investing methodsWhile achieving the same return as the stock market can provide a worthwhile passive income in retirement, following Warren Buffett’s strategy could lead to even higher returns. He has outperformed the stock market over many decades through using a simple strategy that focuses on purchasing high-quality companies when they trade at low prices. This enables him to capitalise on temporary mispricings in the stock market, as well as to benefit from the long-term growth of equities.At the present time, there appear to be numerous opportunities to follow Warren Buffett’s methods. Many sectors in the FTSE 350 are currently unpopular among investors, which means they have low valuations. For example, resources companies and retailers offer low valuations. Although they face tough operating conditions in the short run, they could provide recovery potential in the long run that leads to a rising share prices and a growing passive income.As such, through buying cheap shares in strong businesses, it is possible to outperform the stock market to produce impressive total returns. This could further improve an individual’s passive income prospects in retirement, and lead to greater financial freedom.

Despite heavy rain, the anti-fascist working class of Providence, R.I., and their local allies turned out in force on Aug. 4 to stop a demonstration by the fascist umbrella group “Resist Marxism.” The group has been active in Boston and across the U.S. for some time, providing a veneer of legitimacy under which more extreme fascist groups can organize.The primary constituents of the fascist rally were American Guard, an anti-immigrant hate group, and a “free speech” group, both of which were armed and ready to assault counterprotesters.The group’s emergence in Providence is worrying, but local people of color and LGBTQ organizers were aware of the danger these fascists pose to our communities and were able to organize a militant, determined response.Despite a heavy police presence, the anti-fascist, working- class activists were able to drive these reactionaries from the plaza in front of the Rhode Island State House in a humiliating defeat for the local fascist movement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

He also alleged that Manjang, who was burned during the attack, had been treated at the home of the commander of the presidential guard Major Bajinka.Interior minister Samba Bah told deputies that an investigation was under way and that it was not yet known who was responsible.Ebrahima Sillah, correspondent for the BBC in Gambia, was also the target of an arson attack overnight on 14-15 August. The privately-owned press has condemned the lack of will on the part of the authorities to find those responsible for a wave of attacks against independent media.—————————————14.04.2004The Independent again the target of an arson attack”This is the second attack of this kind in six months on this independent newspaper, which is known for criticising the government,” Reporters Without Border said. “Even if the police seem determined to shed light on matters this time, we will remain vigilant and we will follow the investigation closely.”According to several witnesses, six hooded gunmen burst into The Independent’s printing works at around 2:00 a.m. on 13 April, firing shots in the air and ordering staff to lie on the ground. One of the intruders then set fire to the newspaper’s new printing press, a Heidelberg Kord 64 acquired in January. It was completely destroyed.Namory Traore, a sports journalist who is also in charge of the press, was able to splash gasoline over the gunmen. This prompted them to flee and one of them, who was badly burned, dropped his firearm as he left.The Independent was already the target of an arson attack on 18 October 2003 but thanks to the fire brigade’s rapid response, there was only minor damage. The police did not even bother to go to the newspaper to see what had happened.Published twice weekly, The Independent tends to be very critical of the government and is subjected to harassment by the National Intelligence Agency, which imprisoned its editor, Abdoulie Sey, for several days in September 2003.

Home / Daily Dose / CFPB Fines Two Lenders $35.7 Million for Kickback Scheme Wells Fargo and JPMorgan have agreed to pay a combined $35.7 million in penalties and redress over their roles in an alleged kickback scheme with a Maryland title company, according to an announcement from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on Thursday.The CFPB said loan officers at the two banks accepted cash, marketing materials, and consumer information in exchange for business referrals to Genuine Total, a now-defunct title firm formerly headquartered in Owings Mills. Kickback schemes are barred under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA).”Today we took action against two of the nation’s largest banks, Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase, for illegal mortgage kickbacks,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said. “These banks allowed their loan officers to focus on their own illegal financial gain rather than on treating consumers fairly. Our action today to address these practices should serve as a warning for all those in the mortgage market.”CFPB says it identified more than 100 loan officers at Wells Fargo and at least six at JPMorgan Chase who participated in the scheme, which garnered thousands of referrals for Genuine Title in exchange for consumer information and marketing services. The bureau also alleged that both banks “did not have an adequate system in place” to identify the violations and that Wells Fargo took no action to stop the practice despite multiple warnings and even a federal lawsuit.For its part, Wells Fargo would be required to pay $10.8 million in redress and $24 million in civil penalties under the proposed consent order. JPMorgan would pay approximately $300,000 in redress and $600,000 in penalties. The bureau also filed administrative consent orders against the banks prohibiting future violations.In addition to Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase, CFPB says several loan officers at another unnamed institution also participated in the scheme with Genuine Title. Unlike the other two banks, that firm self-identified the problem, terminated the loan officers involved, and cooperated with CFPB, which said it has “resolved that investigation without an enforcement action.”Also included in the action are former Wells Fargo employee Todd Cohen and his wife, Elaine Cohen, who were allegedly involved in the scheme. CFPB says that during his employment as Wells Fargo from April 2009 through August 2010, Todd Cohen received both marketing emails and “substantial cash payments” in exchange for referrals. The payments were allegedly funneled through Elaine Cohen, who was his girlfriend at the time, in order to disguise the kickbacks.Under the proposed consent order, the two would be required to pay a civil penalty of $30,000, and Todd Cohen would be banned from participating in the mortgage industry for two years.JPMorgan Chase commented on the agreement with a statement: “We are fully committed to ensuring that our mortgage bankers comply with all legal and regulatory requirements. These former employees clearly violated our policies, procedures and training.”Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Goyda issued the following statement: “Wells Fargo holds its team members to the highest ethical standards and does not tolerate improper activities or failure to comply with rules, regulations or company policies. We have fully cooperated with the CFPB in this matter and have taken strong corrective action, including terminating team members who were involved and enhancing our procedures to provide greater oversight and monitoring of both the process and our team members.” Tory Barringer began his journalism career in early 2011, working as a writer for the University of Texas at Arlington’s student newspaper before joining the DS News team in 2012.
