Enter Your Email Address Investors considering buying gold or using Cash ISAs at the present time may enjoy higher returns than the FTSE 100 in the short run. The popularity of lower-risk assets could increase due to the challenging economic outlook, which could cause large-cap shares to experience a period of weak performance.However, £5k, or any other amount, invested in FTSE 100 shares over the long run could deliver significantly greater returns than other mainstream assets. The index’s low valuations and growth prospects in the coming years may mean that now is the right time to build a diverse portfolio of bargain shares.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…Bargain FTSE 100 sharesThe FTSE 100 contains a number of companies that trade significantly below their long-term average prices. This may dissuade some investors from buying them, since they could yet fall further as the economic cost of coronavirus becomes more evident. However, over the long run they have the potential to post high returns that could catalyse your portfolio’s performance and improve your financial prospects.In many cases, investors have priced-in the risks facing blue-chip shares. Therefore, they appear to offer margins of safety in case the economic cost of coronavirus proves to be even greater than anticipated. And, with monetary policy likely to remain supportive of the economy over the coming years, the operating conditions for many businesses could improve as they have done after previous recessions.Furthermore, buying FTSE 100 shares while they are priced at low levels has previously been a worthwhile strategy. For example, investing during the global financial crisis, the tech bubble and the 1987 crash allowed investors to capitalise on the index’s future recovery prospects.Short-term risksOf course, buying FTSE 100 shares today could lead to paper losses in the short run. Therefore, gold and Cash ISAs may offer greater stability and profit in the near term.However, low interest rates mean that the returns net of inflation for Cash ISAs could be highly disappointing. In fact, they could even be negative and lead to a reduction in spending power.Similarly, gold’s appeal may decline as an economic recovery takes hold and investor sentiment improves. The precious metal is also trading at a high level, which could suggest that there is limited scope for similar price rises to those experienced since the start of 2020.As such, the FTSE 100 could offer stronger return prospects over the long run than gold and Cash ISAs. Now could be the right time to build a diverse portfolio of high-quality businesses while their share prices are trading at bargain levels. History suggests that the current low levels of the index will not last in perpetuity, which could mean there are attractive capital returns on offer for long-term investors who can look beyond short-term market volatility.center_img Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

UK shares to buy now: 3 I think can double my money in 3 years

Christopher Ruane | Friday, 26th March, 2021 | More on: BATS LLOY SFOR Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Some UK shares doubled over the past year. That partly reflects their low starting point after the stock market crash last March. But I’ve been thinking about how I might double my money in coming years, starting in today’s market. I’ve picked some UK shares to buy now I think might double my money over three years.A banking pickShares in Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) have been strengthening already. Money invested at the start of 2021 would already show a 20% capital gain.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…But I expect the shares to increase further. Lloyds’ profit last year fell sharply – but it still made a profit. Given the tumult in the economy I reckon that underlines the attractiveness of its focus on domestic banking.Positively, Lloyds has restarted dividends. These remain constrained by regulatory limits. The bank plans to return to a progressive dividend policy when it can. Meanwhile, it continues to accrue excess capital. It could choose to return this as dividends. Between an improving business outlook and positive dividend news, I expect investor sentiment about Lloyds to improve. I see them as UK shares to buy now for my portfolio.  Risks include any downturn in the housing market or general economy, given Lloyds’ heavy mortgage exposure.High yield with growthAnother name I think could double my money in three years is British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS). The shares currently yield 7.6%. Collecting dividends for three years at that level would already offer a total return close to 22%. However, dividend maintenance is never guaranteed. BAT faces challenges including a decline in smoking in key markets and an adjusted net debt close to £40bn.If BAT shares can hit their 2017 peak again at some stage over the next three years, they would trade for double today’s price. With the dividend return, I would hopefully only need an 80% rise to double my money.That still sounds steep! But I would pick them as UK shares to buy now because they seem undervalued. Admittedly the price is hardly changed from a year ago, showing just a 1% increase. But the business is performing well: reported profit from operations rose 10.5% last year and adjusted free cash flow after dividends was up 32.7%. I think the name is overdue a rerating.UK shares to buy now for digital exposureDigital agency S4 Capital (LSE: SFOR) released its annual results yesterday. Like BAT, the company has performed well despite the pandemic. Organic revenue growth was 15%. Acquisitions lifted the total revenue growth to 59%. Another acquisition was announced, of the agency Jam3.Growth is welcome but profitable growth is even better. The basic loss per share narrowed from 2.7p to 0.8p. Scale and a growing reputation should help earnings improve, in my view.The shares broke 500p on the results, but that only got them back to where they were last month. I think the market continues to undervalue the agency’s massive potential. Its global reach and talent base are impressive.Risks include the preponderance of competing digital agencies. S4 Capital also seems heavily reliant on the drive of Sir Martin Sorrell. Any reduced involvement from him could damage confidence.  The shares more than doubled last year and I think they could do the same in the next three years if not sooner. 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.

A fire engulfed Kenya’s main airport, choking a vital travel and trade gateway to east Africa, witnesses and officials said. The cause of the fire was not yet known. Photo: ReutersEditors note: Story updated 12:15 p.m. EDT Aug. 9 with travelers’ location, other details[Episcopal News Service] Six Episcopalians who had been in Kenya since late July and were stuck in that country Aug. 7 after their flight to the U.S. was disrupted by a massive fire at the Nairobi airport report that they have taken a bus and a plane to Ethiopia.Rebecca Wilson posted on her Facebook page about 6:15 a.m. EDT on Aug. 9 a summary of the route she, her son Jacob Bilich, Jim Naughton, the Rev. Lowell Grisham, the Rev. Jon M. Richardson and Ellie Rolfes Rencher took out of Kenya.“We took an eight hour bus ride from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro, including two hours waiting to get across the Tanzanian border, and then spent six hours overnight in the Kilimanjaro open-air airport with mosquitoes and not enough food or water,” Wilson wrote. “Then, at 4:30 am, we flew from Kilimanjaro to Mombasa to Addis Ababa. Then we stood in a crowd for two hours and — advocated, shall we say? — for boarding passes for tonight’s flight to Dulles [International Airport in Washington, D.C.] and voucher for a hotel day room and meals.”“Believe it or not, our story is better than some we heard from folks who stayed in Nairobi to wait it out,” she added. “Here’s hoping we land in DC Saturday morning with no more stories to tell!”On Aug. 7, Wilson reported on Facebook that the group was “safe and sound in a lovely Nairobi guest house” after learning of the fire on their way to the airport.“We are working on rebooking flights now and are keeping our phones open and charged for calls concerning that process,” she wrote at the time.Prayers were said for the group Aug. 7 during the noon day Eucharist at the Episcopal Church Center in New York.The six were part of a larger group of 16 Episcopalians who met July 29-Aug. 1 at the Jumuia Conference Centre in Limuru, Kenya, with Anglicans from nine African countries and ecumenical participants to explore issues of sexuality in dialogue with scripture. The Chicago Consultation and the Ujamaa Centre of the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, convened the conference with the Consultation.The meeting continued conversations and relationships begun two years earlier at a similar consultation in Durban, South Africa, according to the Consultation.Wilson told the New York Times that the group had spent a few days after the gathering in a village near the Masai Mara Game Reserve. They learned of the fire on their way to the airport, she said.Wilson and her son live in Akron, Ohio; Naughton lives in Washington, D.C., They are partners in Canticle Communications. Rolfes Rencher, whose home is in Charlotte, North Carolina, is an associate of the firm.Grisham is the rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Richardson is the rector of the Memorial Church of the Good Shepherd in Philadelphia.Kenya authorities temporarily closed Jomo Kenyatta International Airport after the fire, which took firefighters four hours to extinguish. Later in the day, some domestic and cargo flights were allowed to operate, the New York Times reported. The airport is said to be East Africa’s busiest.No one was killed in the blaze, the Times said.Media reports noted that Aug. 7 was the anniversary of the 1998 coordinated bombings of American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, attacks that killed more than 200 people. However, Reuters quoted, Boniface Mwaniki, head of the Nairobi anti-terror police unit, as saying there was no connection with terrorism.

US Marines sprint toward raging fire to help save dozens of senior citizens

first_imgTwitter/@lmedsker(WASHINGTON) — Dozens of senior citizens were saved from a raging apartment fire thanks to Washington D.C. firefighters and several U.S. Marines, eyewitness video showed.The Marines, who weren’t wearing fire gear, sprinted toward the two-alarm fire at the Arthur Capper Senior Public Housing building in Washington on Wednesday. “Marines rushed into the building to rescue those who needed assistance and evacuated residents to the Marine Barracks Washington Annex where they were checked and treated for any injuries and sheltered until their loved ones arrived,” according to a statement from the Marines posted on Facebook.The Marines who responded were from a barracks located just down the street from the inflamed building.Flames burst through the roof of the four-story building as firefighters climbed ladders and entered to search for residents, D.C. Fire Chief Milton Douglas said at a press conference.“We had four transports to local hospitals,” Douglas added.Although no fatalities have been reported, searches were still being conducted in the building.The cause of the fire, Douglas added, remains under investigation.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
