Growth investing: 5 UK shares to buy FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Growth investing can be a great way to build wealth in the long term. However, it can also be perilous, which is why I think investors should have a diversified portfolio of UK shares. With that in mind, here are five UK shares I would buy today for a diversified portfolio of growth investments.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…UK shares to buyData and data analysis is a booming business. That’s why the first two companies on my list are GlobalData and YouGov.These two companies provide similar (but not identical) services for the information technology sector. They are both projected to report explosive growth over the next 12 months.Analysts have pencilled in earnings growth of 64% for GlobalData and 54% for YouGov. These are just projections at this stage and should not be relied upon for investment decisions. There are two primary challenges these companies face — competition from larger businesses and a potential data breach. The former could cause these organisations to lose market share, while the latter could significantly damage their reputation.Still, I would buy both stocks as part of a diversified portfolio of UK shares to invest in the global data boom. Market recoveryWe’ve seen plenty of data suggesting the UK economy is starting to recover from last year’s setback. One way to play this trend, in my opinion, is to buy recovery plays, which may benefit from an improvement in economic activity over the next few months and years.Norcros and Churchill China are two of my favourite options for this theme. Norcros manufactures and sells home improvement products, and the company has benefited from the improving state of the housing market over the past six months. Its latest update reported that revenues in the UK between the beginning of February and the end of September last year increased around 15% year-on-year. I think this trend could continue as the UK economy recovers to full capacity. Churchill, which supplies hospitality businesses worldwide, is expected to report a near 95% decline in earnings for 2020. However, the company is expecting a significant improvement in trading for 2021. Based on what we’ve seen in other markets around the world that have already started to open up, I think the business is right. Consumers appear to be happy to splurge after spending 12 months under restrictions.Of course, the most significant risks these two companies face is another economic downturn. This could setback their recoveries, and there’s no guarantee either business would be able to survive another year of disruption. If the pandemic drags on into 2022, and there’s no economic recovery, Norcross and Churchill may struggle. Defensive investment The final company I’d buy as part of a diversified basket of UK shares is Hikma.This global pharma business produces generic medications. While this may not be the fastest-growing market in the world, it’s not going to go away. As the world’s population continues to expand, I think the demand for drugs will only grow. That’s why I’d buy Hikma today. The main risks the company faces are lawsuits from competitors, as well as regulatory controls. If the business falls foul of regulators, it could be forced to stop selling treatments, devastating its business model.  Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%.

Debt Level Among Top Disagreements for Couple Homebuyers

New survey data showed that 60 percent of millennial and Generation X couples disagreed occasionally, frequently, or “a lot” when buying a house with their partner or spouse. Couples that have been together for five-plus years have a much more harmonious move, disagreeing frequently or more only 14 percent of the time. However, couples together four years or less disagreed twice as much at 30 percent or more.“Buying a home is stressful for just about anyone but even more so for couples and first-time homebuyers,” said Matt Humphrey, Co-Founder and CEO of LendingHome. “To navigate the home-buying process smoothly starts by first being aware of some of the pitfalls.The top disagreements among couples when moving are the level of debt to take on (49 percent), the style of house (46 percent), size of house (45 percent), and whether or not to buy a house in need of renovation (43 percent). Some couples struggled with different housing preferences based on their gender and location. Women typically wanted traditional or cozy homes (48 percent) over modern homes (34 percent) and suburbs (54 percent) over a big city (15 percent). Men are more open to the style and location of their home, having relatively equal preference to the aforementioned preferences.“Buying a home together is more than playing house and making Pinterest boards of dream kitchens; it’s a serious commitment with enormous financial implications,” said Samantha Burns,  a licensed Couples Therapist and Dating Coach in Boston, Massachusetts. “You need to feel secure and confident in your relationship before taking this step together. In searching for your dream home, get clear on your wants versus needs, firm deal breakers, and ability to analyze the pros and cons. By getting on the same page at the beginning, you’ll be able to minimize conflict throughout your home search.”The good news is 60 percent of all couples said their disagreements when buying a house really didn’t matter in the end and 50 percent felt more committed after the purchase. Knowing the pitfalls of buying with a significant other, however, can help navigate the process more smoothly.
