I reckon £3,000 invested in these 2 FTSE 100 stocks could help you retire early

Enter Your Email Address The recent stock market crash has thrown up some FTSE 100 bargains. However, they may not look like good value right now because of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.It can be a good strategy shopping for shares when a set-back has temporarily depressed a company’s revenues and profits. I’d choose shares backed by good-quality and resilient underlying businesses then hold them for the long term.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…If you do that, you could see decent gains when markets recover and beyond, as each enterprise expands and progresses in the years ahead. There’s a decent chance that investing now could help you make enough money to retire early.Plumbing and heating suppliesI reckon plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning products supplier Ferguson (LSE: FERG) is a good example of a company operating in a resilient sector. Taps keep dripping, central heating breaks down, and pipes burst in the loft whatever the wider economy is doing.Meanwhile, Ferguson has done a good job of capturing a large swathe of the market over the years. Indeed, no serious plumber or heating installer can manage without an account with Ferguson. The company has an active acquisition programme that buys loads of smaller distributors every year and bolts their businesses onto the larger Ferguson operation.Radiators, pipes, and cylinders walk out of Ferguson’s doors under the arms of plumbers up and down the country every working day. And there’s a massive, similar set-up in America as well. Meanwhile, trading continues both sides of the pond, and business will probably improve further as the virus fades from our lives. I’d be a buyer of share-price weakness now and a strong long-term holder of the shares.Packaging and paperPaper and packaging producer Mondi (LSE: MNDI) has run a defensive, cash-generating business for as long as I can remember. In today’s world of internet shopping and plentiful parcel deliveries, there’s been strong demand for the firm’s products. I can only imagine a world with Covid-19 adding to that need.Mondi manages forests and produces pulp, paper, plastic films, and packaging solutions. And in an update near the beginning of April, the company reported a “robust performance” during the first quarter of 2020.Naturally, the firm has taken all the usual precautions to protect its employees and customers through the coronavirus crisis. And the directors said in the update the order books “held up well” in Q1. There was a deterioration in the uncoated fine paper order book towards the end of the quarter and into early April because of lockdowns around the world. However, I can only imagine business improving now that such measures are starting to lift.I reckon the future looks bright for Mondi and its shareholders and I’d be a buyer now to take advantage of ongoing weakness in the share price. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Growth investing: 5 UK shares to buy

first_img Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Image source: Getty Images. 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%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment.

5 Tips to Stay Active During the Holidays

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. TAGSFitness RoutinesHoliday Stress Previous articleOn this Day: Creator of Narnia diesNext articleWant to improve your neighborhood? Get organized Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR We are all busy during the holiday season, so it is common for people to fall out of their regular exercise and fitness routine. However, the stress that the holidays brings to most of us makes it a crucial time to stick with it. Here are 5 tips that can help you stay healthy and active during the holiday season:1. Get a Workout BuddyIt seems very simple and obvious, but having a steady workout partner is a very effective way to ensure that you are sticking to your fitness routine. A workout buddy will hold you accountable, so you may be more likely to keep it up. It is also a lot more fun to work out with someone else, so it may make exercising something you actually look forward to during the busy holiday season.Tip #1 – Get a workout buddy.2. Morning or Evening WorkoutsYou may already feel like you do not have enough time during the holidays to get everything done, but scheduling time either in the morning or evening to work out is a great way to make sure that you get your workouts in. Working out in the morning will give you an extra boost of energy so you can get through the rest of your day. If you work out in the evening, you can shake off all of the stress from the day and even sleep better. Waking up a little earlier or staying up a little later can be key to staying active during the holidays.3. Exercise with FamilySince holidays are a time to be around family, it can be the perfect time to get in some physical activities with your loved ones. Taking a nice long walk or going to the park are a couple of great ways to bond with your family while also getting in some light exercise. If it snows, get outside with your kids and relatives for a snowball fight or sledding. You’ll be surprised how many regular holiday activities can actually count as your workouts.Tip #3 – Exercise with family.4. Clean/Decorate Your HomeThe holidays are a great time to get in some deep cleaning in your home, and you can actually use it to your advantage. Decorating your home can also help you burn some extra calories because it causes you to walk up and down stairs, squat, and stand for longer periods of time than you normally would. You can kill two birds with one stone while you get your home ready for the holidays.5. Sign up for a Holiday RaceThere are dozens of holiday-themed marathons and fun runs during the holiday months, and signing up for one can help you get into a training mindset that will help you stay motivated during the holidays. Marathons are also a good way to bond with friends and family because you can train and run together. Also, the marathon itself will be a blast and leave you feeling healthy and energetic.

Charity Commission consults on draft guidance for responsible investments

first_img‘Responsible investments’ refers to financial investments that align with a charity’s mission and purpose. The regulator announced the review earlier this year, after an informal listening exercise found that the way responsible investment is outlined in its existing guidance does not give all trustees sufficient confidence that they can consider, or that the Commission supports, this approach to investment. Melanie May | 12 April 2021 | News Tagged with: Charity Commission investment About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The Charity Commission is asking for views on newly published draft guidance for making responsible investments. It has now published a draft of updated guidance and is asking charities and others to feed back on whether the changes are clear, and make the guidance easier to use. The consultation runs for six weeks until 20 May. Advertisement “We have worked hard to ensure our draft guidance is easy to understand and empowers trustees to make decisions that are right for their charity. Paul Latham, Director of Communications and Policy at the Charity Commission said: “I encourage trustees, charity staff, those involved in investment management, and anyone with an interest in how charities are run to take part in our consultation, to help ensure our final guidance is as clear and empowering as possible.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charity Commission consults on draft guidance for responsible investments “During the listening exercise we held last year, we learnt that many charities are interested in considering responsible investments but need more clarity around the regulatory position. Under the draft guidance trustees of all charities can decide whether or not to adopt a responsible investment approach that reflects the charity’s purposes and values, and not just focus on the financial return. The new draft explains that the rules applying to responsible investments are those that apply to all financial investments, including that trustees’ decisions must always be made in the best interests of the charity, and in line with its governing document. The guidance also highlights the slightly different rules that apply when charities invest permanent endowments.  783 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The guidance is part of the Commission’s wider guidance on Charities and Investment Matters, which is not yet being updated.
