first_imgStock market rally: here’s why I’m buying FTSE 100 shares in an ISA Enter Your Email Address Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Last year’s dramatic stock market rally has fizzled out, but I still think now is a great time to buy FTSE 100 shares inside a tax-free ISA. The index is up by a third since falling below 5,000 in March last year, but has bags more recovery potential.At some point, I expect another leg of the stock market rally. The FTSE 100 has been in a holding position of around 6,700 for most of this year, but that won’t last forever. I think top shares should start growing strongly once we see a clear route out of the pandemic.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…It’s not guaranteed, of course and I don’t know when that rally will come. Nobody does. Predicting where the stock market will go from one month to the next is a mug’s game. However, history shows that in the longer run, the trajectory is upwards.I’m buying before the stock market rallyThere’s no question that the Millennium has been a disappointment. The FTSE 100 spiked at 6,930 on 31 December 1999, and trades just below that level today. Don’t let that fool you into thinking nobody has made money in that time, though.Even in the hugely unlikely event that investors bought every single stock they own on Millennium Eve, they will still have made a fat profit. If they’d reinvested all their dividends back into their portfolios for growth, they would have bought loads more stock at much cheaper valuations. In practice, most people will have invested at much lower levels. For example, the FTSE 100 fell as low as 3,000 in March 2003, in the wake of the technology crash. That was a great buying opportunity. So was last year’s Covid crash, given the scale of the subsequent stock market rally.I buy FTSE 100 stocks for the long termI would still like to see the FTSE 100 power through 7,000, then 8,000, 9,000. Will that happen? Again, I don’t know. What I do know is that buying FTSE 100 shares is likely to make my money work much harder than if I stick to cash. I’m still 15 years away from retirement and over that time, I would hope the stock market would generate plenty of dividend income and capital growth, all of which would be tax-free inside an ISA.I like buying shares in a stock market crash as then I can buy my favourite companies at bargain prices. I don’t only buy in a crash though. I think the best time to invest in shares is whenever I money to spare. Then I simply leave it there, and wait for the next stock market rally to lift its value. That doesn’t always happen with every share I buy as individual companies can struggle or fail. But with a diversified portfolio, I aim to protect myself from having too much of a weighting to individual stocks.There are lots of exciting opportunities out there right now. At some point, lockdown has to ease, then people can go out and start spending again. I would rather buy shares before that happens, than afterwards. I always aim to buy and hold for the long term, so I can benefit from the next stock market rally, and the rally after that.

first_imgSunday Aug 18, 2013 The All Blacks crush the Wallabies in Bledisloe One in Sydney Ben Smith scored a hat-trick as the All Blacks gave new Wallaby coach Ewen McKenzie plenty to think about with a convincing 47-29 win in the Rugby Championship opener in Sydney. Six tries to two proved the difference in what was a crushing victory. The All Blacks started well with a try to Ben Smith in the corner, and despite Wallaby scrumhalf Will Genia scoring a sensational 75m effort from a lineout turnover, the visitors were never troubled.While things were fairly evenly poised at 25-19 at the break, the second half was all about the All Blacks as they cruised to their 100th Test win over the Wallabies, who themselves improved the overall scoreline with a late consolation try to James O’Connor.Aaron Cruden came in for injured Dan Carter and scored 20 points overall, while captain Richie McCaw looked as potent as ever, giving away a few penalties but being his usual menacing self.“I am obviously very happy with the performance. It’s not every day that you can come here and get 40-odd points. I thought both teams played good rugby,” said All Blacks coach Steve Hansen. “For Richie McCaw to get through 70 minutes after having his break and everyone doubting him just shows the character of the bloke once again, while Aaron Cruden showed that he’s a true international player of world-class ability and he led the team very well.”It doesn’t get any easier for the Wallabies, as next week the return match is in Wellington.Enjoy the highlights and please let us know your thoughts on the match as a comment below.  <mce:script language=’JavaScript1.1′ mce_src=”;abr=!ie;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]”> </mce:script> <NOSCRIPT> <A HREF=”;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]?” mce_HREF=”;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]”> <IMG SRC=”;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]?” mce_SRC=”;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400×80;ord=[timestamp]” BORDER=0 WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=80 ALT=”Advertisement”></A> </NOSCRIPT> ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks , The Rugby Championship Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter By admin – April 22, 2018 Local NewsBusiness Twitter WhatsApp Ray Perryman is the head of The Perryman Group and serves as a distinguished professor at the International Institute for Advanced Studies. Recently, there have been questions raised regarding the fairness of the use of the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF), a key aspect of the state’s economic development incentives. At issue is whether the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex gets a disproportionate share of awards. The TEF is an important “deal closing” fund which has been effectively used to enhance Texas’ ability to attract desirable corporate locations and expansions.To be eligible for TEF awards, companies must be planning a project with significant projected job creation and capital investment. Moreover, they must be looking at a single (yes, single) site in Texas which is actively competing with at least one viable out-of-state option. Projects have to be supported by the city, county and/or school district in which the project would be located, including local incentives. Applicants go through an 11-step due diligence process, and, if all criteria are successfully met, the governor, lieutenant governor and speaker of the house then review applications and must unanimously agree to support the award.While economic development incentives are absolutely essential, they are certainly not the only (or even the most important) criteria. Decision locations are driven by the ability to meet the needs of the company. Workforce, infrastructure, geographic location, proximity to customers and suppliers, access to raw materials and many other fundamental characteristics of each potential location are examined. The best combination of attributes, including incentives, generally prevails.The Dallas-Fort Worth area is not only one of the most dynamic in the nation, but also offers advantages such as a major airline hub, a long history as a business and financial center, other transportation advantages including highway and rail access and a cargo-oriented airport, a large and growing population and proximity to many Fortune 500 corporate headquarters. I could go on, but it’s no surprise that the area is drawing in new projects. Recent years have also seen multiple TEF-supported technology-oriented projects in the Austin area, a wind tower manufacturer in Amarillo and chemical manufacturing facilities along the Gulf Coast. These locations make sense for the businesses selecting them, and the cities chosen were not interchangeable. The geographic distribution of awards has also varied over time.Incentives for economic development are becoming more critical for myriad reasons, and the TEF has been and will remain crucial to Texas growth. However, the basic needs of a company considering a location are paramount. Each area is different, with its own set of characteristics. Companies look for the best fit based on their own criteria, and any attempt to use the TEF or any other statewide tool to force them toward a particular metropolitan area would be counterproductive and, under current rules, impossible.
