Forget Bitcoin! Here’s how I’d invest £20k in shares today to get rich and retire early

first_img Peter Stephens owns shares of Aviva, BAE Systems, and BP. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. 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. Investing £20k in shares instead of Bitcoin may seem like a strange move to some investors right now. After all, the prices of many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks are still significantly down on their 2020 starting prices. Meanwhile, the Bitcoin price rise has accelerated so that the virtual currency is up around 175% year-to-date.However, on a long-term basis, a portfolio of UK shares could offer less risk and greater return prospects than Bitcoin. As such, it may be a better means of improving an investor’s chances of getting rich and retiring early.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…Investing £20k in shares todayThe historic returns of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 show that investing £20k in UK shares today could lead to a  larger nest egg than Bitcoin over the long run.Both indexes have historically delivered total annual returns of around 8%. Assuming the same return on a £20k investment today would lead to a portfolio valued at around £435,000 over a 40-year time period.However, the 2020 stock market crash has left many UK shares trading at cheap prices. As such, they may be able to deliver higher returns than those of the wider index over the long run.Since they’re starting from a low base, and stock valuations tend to revert to their long-term averages over time, their potential to deliver capital gains over the coming years seems to be high.For example, investing £20k in UK shares such as BP, Sainsbury’s, BAE and Aviva could produce impressive returns. All four companies, and many others, have low valuations at the present time, as well as refreshed strategies to improve their financial performance. Over time, they could lead to a larger portfolio value within a basket of diverse UK stocks than Bitcoin.Avoiding Bitcoin’s risky outlookWhile UK shares can turn a £20k investment into a genuine retirement portfolio, Bitcoin faces a far less certain future. The stock market has always recovered to post new highs, but the price of Bitcoin could come under severe pressure if regulatory risks come to the fore. Or alternative virtual currencies become more popular.Moreover, Bitcoin’s price rise is based on improving investor sentiment. Unlike shares, it has no fundamentals, such as profit or asset values, to support its price level. As such, it would only take a change in attitude among investors to severely dampen its recent price rise.As such, investing £20k, or any other amount, in undervalued UK shares seems to be a more prudent move. Certainly, they could underperform Bitcoin and other assets in the short run, depending on how the economic picture changes.But their solid fundamentals and track record of growth over a very long time period indicate they offer superior risk/reward opportunities than the virtual currency.

AFP PHOTO / Antony DICKSON (Photo credit should read ANTONY DICKSON/AFP/GettyImages) In the draw for the Marriott London Sevens, England will compete in Pool B against the USA, France and Samoa on day one. England have provided two of the previous winners of the IRB award, Simon Amor scooping the prize in 2004 and Ollie Phillips in 2009. Cecil Afrika (South Africa) picked up last season’s honours.Turner said: “It’s a real honour to be nominated and to be held in that regard by your peers. My form’s been good this season but I get put in the position to score the tries and it’s a team effort. I’ve just found myself in the right place at the right time – so I can’t complain about that!” England’s Mathew Turner was today shortlisted as a contender for the IRB International Sevens Player of the Year award.The former Bristol wing faces competition from two New Zealanders – half back Tomasi Cama and wing Frank Halai – for the accolade, which will be presented after the ninth and final leg of this season’s HSBC Sevens World Series at Twickenham next weekend.Turner, 24, has enjoyed a spectacular season playing at centre of half back, scoring eight tries in six games at last weekend’s Glasgow Sevens, where England were beaten 29-14 in the final by New Zealand.One of 12 full-time contracted sevens players on England’s books, he has scored 33 tries this season – only two less than teammate Dan Norton, who leads the series try table going into the Marriott London Sevens.

Government finally appoints Independent Broadcasting Authority

Nouri Lejmi, a teacher at the Institute for Press and Information Sciences (IPSI), is to be its president.“We can only welcome this announcement, which has been awaited for the past year and a half,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The installation of this self-regulatory body is the first concrete step in the overhaul of the Tunisian media envisaged by Decree-Law 116-2011.“We expressed our concern about the repeated postponement of the creation of this body during a meeting with President Marzouki last January, so this announcement is a big relief.”The HAICA will face many challenges, as major structural reforms are needed. All the laws governing the Tunisian media need to be revised. The challenges include:- Sorting out the situation of the new radio and TV stations, which are broadcasting illegally.- Establishing terms of reference for commercial and community radio and TV stations so that licences can be properly issued.- Appointing persons to run the state-owned media and revising the appointments already made by the coalition government since January 2012.The HAICA will also have to decree rules for the media to follow during the upcoming elections, to ensure that the public receives freely-reported, transparent, diverse and independent coverage. It is also important that the HAICA should intercede with the government in order to find solutions to the various problems faced by media created in the wake of the Ben Ali dictatorship’s overthrow in January 2011.“This new regulatory authority is the fruit of a struggle by Tunisia’s journalists, alongside whom Reporters Without Borders has been fighting for years,” Deloire added. “Our organization can offer the HAICA its expertise and analyses in order to help ensure the emergence of free and independent media in Tunisia.” News to go further November 12, 2019 Find out more Related documents 130507_cp_haica_ar.pdfPDF – 133.22 KB TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa News RSF_en Follow the news on Tunisia Organisation News TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa November 11, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

SC Issues Notice To Attorney General On Plea Challenging Bail Condition Imposed On Accused Requesting Victim To Tie Him A Rakhi

What is happening is that rape is occurring or there is some sexual harassment case, the conditions which are put tend to trivialise these offences and so these observations come”- Senior Advocate Sanjay Parikh to SCThe bench asked Parikh whether this was filed against the Madhya Pradesh HC.Parikh stated that there is an application seeking restraint on High Courts from passing such orders across the country.In this backdrop, the court said that it will only issue notice to the Attorney General and granted the petitioners liberty to serve a copy of the paperbook on AG KK Venugopal’s office.The case will now come up for further directions on November 2.Supreme Court advocate Aparna Bhat and eight other women lawyers filed plea through Advocate Pukhrambam Ramesh Kumar ,seeking a stay on the bail condition imposed by the final judgment passed by the Hon’ble Madhya Pradesh High Court at Indore ion July 30, 2020.Petitioners challenged the above-mentioned Bail Condition only (and not the Bail order in toto).The Bail condition which has been challenged in the Petition stated,”(i) the applicant along with his wife shall visit the house of the complainant with Rakhi thread/band on 03rd August, 2020 at 11:00 am with a box of sweets and request the complainant Sarda Bai to tie the Rakhi band to him with the promise to protect her to the best of his ability for all times to come. He shall also tender Rs. 11,000/- (Rs. Eleven Thousand Only) to the complainant as the customary ritual usually offered by the brothers to sisters on such occasion and shall also seek her blessings. The applicant shall also tender Rs. 5,000/- to the son of the complainant-Vishal for purchase of clothes and sweets”The plea states that the High Court erred in imposing a condition that defeated the very purpose of granting bail by directing the alleged perpetrator to establish contact with the victim and that the HC failed to appreciate that in most cases of sexual violence, the prosecutrix turns hostile and in many of these cases it is because she gets intimidated and/or induced by the family of the accused.The Petition avers that the High Court ought to have been cognizant and sensitive to the fact that in a case involving a sexual offence having been committed against a woman; it is immeasurably difficult for the survivor to lodge an FIR and pursue a criminal case against the accused at the threshold.The plea further states,”In the context of Rakshabandhan being a festival of guardianship between brothers and sisters, the said bail condition amounts to the gross trivialization of the trauma suffered by the Complainant in the present case.” (emphasis supplied)Importantly, the plea also states,”That the present case is of particular concern since it has taken years to undo the damaging approach followed by Courts whereby cases involving sexual offences committed against women are attempted to be compromised by way of marriage or mediation between the accused and the survivor.” (emphasis supplied)The plea also maintain that imposing a condition whereby the accused i.e. Respondent No. 2 is required to go to the house of the Complainant on the festival of Rakshabandhan and request her to tie a rakhi around his wrist with the “promise to protect her to the best of his ability for all times to come” results in further victimization of the survivor in her own house.Application filed seeking directions of the Supreme CourtIn an application filed by the Petitioners seeking directions from the Supreme Court on Saturday (10th October), it has been stated that it is becoming a rather frequent phenomenon where extraneous conditions/observations are being made in many cases related to women, which tend to trivialize the offences committed.Further, the application states that the violence against women and more particularly sexual violence against women, are extremely serious offences and needed to be treated stringently by the Courts.As has been seen in the recent past, the Application further maintains, the violence is getting gorier and perpetrators of the offences are operating with impunity completely confident that law enforcement is complicit and/or a willing participant in suppressing these complaints.In this context, the Applications lists out those instances where observations have been made in cases relating to offences against women including cases under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 (“POCSO Act”) which are totally extraneous and stand to trivialise the trauma suffered by a woman which violates the dignity of a woman as protected by Article 21.In many of these cases, the Application states, while granting bail to the accused in rape cases and cases under the POCSO Act, the courts, by relying upon the factum of marriage having been arranged/solemnized between the victim and accused, have made extraneous observations.It has been averred in the application that in many cases these conditions are actually like compromise, which dilute or completely obliterate the heinousness of the crime against the dignity of a woman.These observations, the Application opines, by no stretch of the imagination, can be conditions under Section 439 of the Code of Criminal Procedure and are in fact extraneous to the parameters for grant of bail. These observations also have an impact on the trial and in many cases on account of such observations, the accused get the benefit of acquittal or imposition of a lesser sentence.Subsequently, the Application states that the Apex Court can issue directions within its vast jurisdiction and that it is a fit case for issuance of such directions, as may be required, by this Hon’ble Court under Article 142 of the Constitution of India to all the High Courts and Trial Courts to refrain them from passing observations and imposing conditions in rape and sexual assault cases that trivialize the trauma undergone by survivors and which violate their human dignity under Art.21.Lastly, the prayer of the Application states,”Direct all the High Courts and Trial Courts to refrain from passing observations and imposing conditions in rape and sexual assault cases, at any stage during the judicial proceedings, which trivializes the trauma undergone by survivors, adversely affects their dignity besides being against the criminal justice system”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Boarding teams from FS Jean Bart search a suspicious dhow in the Arabian Sea, after witnessing the crew dumping packages overboard. Photo: FS Jean Bart View post tag: drug interdiction Operations The French Navy’s Cassard-class anti-air frigate Jean Bart (D615) intercepted over 2,900 kg of illicit drugs on 12 February 2021, in the latest successful Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) interdiction in the Arabian Sea. Photo: FS Jean Bart Back to overview,Home naval-today French Navy frigate seizes nearly 3 tons of hashish in Arabian Sea “I am very proud that Jean Bart and her crew could contribute to the coalition fight against illicit trafficking that feeds international crime and terrorism,” Captain Ouk, commanding officer of the ship, commented. “This seizure results from the good cooperation amongst Combined Task Force 150 and our good knowledge of this area where French units operate on a regular basis.” Following the operation, boarding teams from the Jean Bart carried out an inspection and search of the dhow to determine whether further contraband was hidden onboard. Strict COVID-19 precaution measures were in place to ensure the safety of those involved. After spotting a suspicious dhow and later investigating it using the ship’s Panther helicopter, the crew of the Jean Bart observed multiple packages being thrown overboard. This haul represents the fourth successful counter-narcotics interdiction achieved by the Royal Canadian Navy-led task force in just over a month, and follows hot on the heels of back to back seizures by HMS Montrose in which over 2,404 kg of hashish, heroin, and methamphetamine were seized worth over $15 million, and another by USS Philippine Sea, in which heroin worth more than $2.8 million was discovered.
