Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. For a long time, buy-to-let investing seemed like a simple way to secure relatively high returns for your financial future. However, in recent years, punitive tax and regulatory changes have reduced this prospect. Today, if you invest £20k in the stock market, it could offer potentially bigger profits than buy-to-let.The stock market’s potential is particularly high right now. This is because stocks are in a bear market. History shows that buying stocks at such times produces superior long-term returns. As such, investing £20k in the market today may be a better way of generating £1m over the long run than buy-to-let.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…Invest £20k in a tax-efficient Stocks and Shares ISAA poll of buy-to-let investors by Accumulate Capital, before the coronavirus pandemic emerged, found 37% were planning to sell one or more of their properties.The vast majority blamed increasing tax and regulation. They said the costs of managing their properties had risen “considerably” over the past five years. In other words, returns from buy-to-let investing had become markedly lower than in the past.By contrast, stock markets appear to have favourable prospects. Major indexes, like the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, are trading at discount levels. There are significant opportunities to buy shares in high-quality businesses at low valuations.You can invest £20k this year in a Stocks and Shares ISA, shielding all future income and capital gains from tax. This favourable tax treatment adds to the case for why shares could offer higher net returns than buy-to-let investment in the long run.It’s far simpler to invest £20k in stocksIn addition to offering higher potential returns, investing in the stock market is far simpler than embarking on buy-to-let investment.Very little time and effort is required to open an online share-dealing account. Furthermore, buying shares these days is much cheaper and cost-effective than it once was. As such, it’s economic to invest £20k in a wide range of stocks, giving you a diversified portfolio by geography and industry.By contrast, the time, effort, and costs of undertaking a buy-to-let investment can be higher than many investors expect. Furthermore, concentrating your investment in one area – even a single property for many small landlords – comes with the elevated risk of having all your eggs in one basket.OutlookThe Bank of England recently warned the UK economy is heading for its sharpest recession on record. The Bank reckons the economy will contract 14% this year, due to the impact of coronavirus. And this level of shrinkage assumes the UK lockdown will be relaxed in June.The housing market has stalled, the availability of mortgage products has fallen – particularly for higher loan-to-value mortgages – and the Bank says it’s “difficult to predict how house prices might evolve”. All this adds to the lack of appeal of buy-to-let investing.Of course, the coronavirus is also having a negative impact on other areas of the UK economy, as well as many other economies around the world. However, not all businesses have been adversely impacted, and not all countries have been impacted to the same degree.As such, buying a portfolio of stocks, diversified by industry and geography, could be more appealing than a buy-to-let investment.

“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Kevin Godbold | Tuesday, 16th June, 2020 | More on: TEP Dividends! Forget the stock market crash. I’d buy this FTSE share yielding 4% Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! As we might expect from a steady, cash-generating, dividend-paying share, Telecom Plus (LSE: TEP) has recovered well from the recent stock market crash. And today’s final-results report confirms the business hasn’t suffered many ill effects from the pandemic crisis. The FTSE 250 stalwart owns the Utility Warehouse brand. And the company describes itself as “the UK’s only fully integrated provider of a wide range of competitively priced utility services spanning the communications, energy, and insurance markets”.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…The dividend is upThe unique selling angle is the firm’s customers – which it calls members — can benefit from the convenience of a single monthly statement, “consistently good value across all their utilities and exceptional levels of service”.But not only is the selling angle a bit different, so is the promotional model. Telecom Plus doesn’t advertise, but relies instead for its growth on word-of-mouth recommendations from its army of “satisfied” members and partners. I reckon there’s something old-fashioned about that approach (in a good way). And the strategy wouldn’t look out of place in many smaller mum-and-dad-type family businesses. The figures are good. In the full year to 31 March, revenue rose almost 9% year on year, and adjusted earnings per share moved 4.7% higher. The directors expressed their approval and optimism about the outlook by slapping 9.6% on the full-year dividend. Chief executive Andrew Lindsay said in the report, the “record” results demonstrate the “resilience and strength” of the business model. He’s pleased with “how well” the company’s partners and employees have adapted to the Covid-19 environment. The effects of the pandemic on the business have been “limited”.Counter-cyclical qualitiesLindsay reckons the business can behave counter-cyclically. It achieves that because partners (which act as salespeople) can earn money by promoting the money-saving advantages of the service. Indeed, in tough economic times, the attractions of the service can appeal even more to potential new members (read ‘customers’). He reckons the firm’s partners are getting used to social distancing and growth is returning to pre-lockdown levels. Meanwhile, Telecom Plus has little debt, which contrasts with the billions borrowed by energy and utility companies. The energy and utility sectors are attractive for their defensive qualities. But I reckon Telecom plus, with its agency business model, provides a real alternative for investors.Indeed, the company can benefit from the cash-generating nature of dealing in energy and other utilities. But isn’t operating under a weight of borrowings that could squash shareholder returns if things go wrong.I think the share’s recovery from the recent stock market crash demonstrates its suitability for a long-term portfolio. We may have missed the coronavirus bottom with this share, but I reckon it remains attractive. Indeed, with the share price near 1,438p, the historical dividend yield sits just below 4%.

El estado capitalista en los EUA convive cómodamente con los terroristas de la derecha. Este hecho vil se ha confirmado una vez más en la secuela de los asesinatos por el terrorista racista Dylann Roof.Para el 29 de junio, ya seis iglesias negras en el Sur habían sido destruidas o sufrieron graves daños por incendios desde lo ocurrido en Charleston. Al menos en tres se ha confirmado haber sido causado por incendio provocado, según el Southern Poverty Law Center (Centro legal para la pobreza sureña). La pérdida para la gente de estas comunidades suma cientos de miles de dólares.Peor aún, los incendios son una amenaza de más violencia a un pueblo cuya dolorosa historia a manos de explotadores blancos todavía resuena con mucha fuerza.El primer incendio destruyó la Iglesia Adventista del Séptimo Día College Hills en Knoxville-Tennessee el 22 de junio. El departamento de bomberos en Knoxville dijo que el asaltante inició varios incendios en la propiedad de la iglesia. El auto de la iglesia también fue quemado.Al día siguiente, un incendio en el santuario de la Iglesia El poder de Dios de Cristo en Macon-Georgia, también fue atribuido a un incendio provocado.Y al día siguiente, otro incendio fue deliberadamente iniciado en la Iglesia Bautista Briar en Charlotte-Carolina del Norte que destruyó el ala de la escuela aledaña destinada a albergar un programa de verano para las/os niños. El gimnasio y el santuario se quemaron, causando daños estimados de $250.000.Esa misma semana, otras tres iglesias negras del Sur – en Tennessee, Florida y Carolina del Sur – también sufrieron incendios, aunque dos pudieron haber sido por causas naturales. Las investigaciones continúan.Después de lo que pasó en Charleston, no puede haber duda de que los incendios provocados fueron iniciados por supremacistas blancos, cuyas efusiones de odio en forma impresa y por el Internet llaman una y otra vez a la violencia contra las personas de color, utilizando un lenguaje a veces disfrazado y otras veces en términos viles y degradantes.Uno podría pensar que el asesinato en masa del tipo que pasó en Charleston provocaría inmediatamente el arresto de quienes abogan una guerra racial contra las/os negros. Hemos visto muchos ejemplos en los últimos años de operaciones encubiertas creadas por el FBI y las autoridades locales de policía para atrapar a militantes negros acusándoles de tramar actos terroristas – actos que los agentes del gobierno habían alentado y facilitado.Pero al igual que con los asesinatos de los tres trabajadores de derechos civiles en 1964 – James Chaney, Andrew Goodman y Michael Schwerner – por miembros del Ku Klux Klan, las autoridades no han intervenido para detener este tipo de ataques. Esto, a pesar de que es lógico suponer que, en estos días de amplia vigilancia, tienen conocimiento de ellos.Esta acción por parte del Estado sin embargo, no encajaría con su objetivo principal – facilitar la extracción de ganancias capitalistas del trabajo de millones de trabajadoras/es al proteger el estatus quo. Y este estatus quo cada vez es más insoportable para millones, mientras la brecha crece entre los muy ricos y el resto de nosotras/os. Así que el estado se torna cada vez más inexorable, con encarcelaciones masivas, sobre todo del pueblo negro y latino, y el entrenamiento y equipamiento de las fuerzas de policía locales para el combate al estilo militar – contra las/os oprimidos, no contra los terroristas racistas.Sin embargo, hay otra consecuencia de Charleston. Es la alentadora visión de negras/os y blancas/os juntas/os exigiendo la eliminación de la bandera y estatuas confederadas. Blancas/os sureños están saliendo a las calles en solidaridad con sus vecinas/os, amigos y compañeros de trabajo negros. A diferencia de los racistas, que en su mayoría permanecen en las sombras en el ejercicio de sus actos fascistas, las/os que luchan contra el racismo son visibles y hablan – inspirando a otras/os con su valor.El valor es algo manifiestamente carente en los intolerantes. ¿Quién sino un cobarde elegiría una iglesia negra para llevar a cabo una campaña criminal? Roof sabía que nadie allí estaría armado. Y los otros que prendieron fuego a las otras iglesias negras lo hicieron en medio de la noche.Pero no es solo de valentía personal que estos elementos fascistas carecen. Toda su perspectiva social se basa en la capitulación cobarde a la clase dominante capitalista. Ellos fulminan contra aquellas/os que son los más oprimidos, culpándoles de todos los males de la sociedad – mientras hacen el trabajo sucio para quienes dominan y se ensañan contra la gran mayoría.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Mosa Hamadeesa is a stateless worker, originally from Palestine’s West Bank. He was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on June 1 while at his home in Raleigh, N.C. He has resided there for 10 years without incident. Now Hamadeesa is being held in federal detention.Currently, Hamadeesa has an asylum case pending. This father of four children is the sole income earner for his family. His 9-year-old daughter, Nadine, has a rare form of cancer and is being treated at Duke University Hospital. Hamadeesa is an auto mechanic and serves the community through his hard work.ICE has filled out paperwork and plans to deport Hamadeesa back to Israel, where he has no authority to live or travel, and could likely be arrested or even killed. He has not committed any crimes inside the U.S. This case represents the Trump regime’s further escalation of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, racist attacks and increasing deportation orders.Hamadeesa’s family, friends and allies held a press conference and rally on June 7 in front of the Wake County Justice Center in downtown Raleigh. There, they demanded that ICE release him. The rally was organized by Muslims for Social Justice. Also participating were members of the Triangle People’s Assembly, the Movement to End Racism and Islamophobia, the Southeast Immigrant Rights Network, the Muslim America Public Affairs Committee, the Muslim American Society-Raleigh, Workers World Party and other organizations.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

BOTH Catz and Keble were relegated from last season’s premier division and each side was eager to demonstrate their wish to return to the top flight in this hotly contested affair on the Woodstock Road.It became apparent early on in the game that this would be a very close encounter, with both sides enjoying a fair share of the ball and creating numerous opportunities. For St. Catz, midfielder Gerrard Cole was inflicting most of the damage, his mazy runs down the left flank causing all manner of trouble for the Keble defence. It was one such run and rolled ball across the box that found striker MacNaughton bearing down on goal. Unfortunately he did not have a finish to match Cole’s run and the shot was scuffed wide. Keble relied heavily on midfielders Askham and Singh to pose their threat and despite his diminutive stature, the sheer determination of Askham gave him that extra couple of inches to dominate the aerial battle. Several balls were floated in from Keble’s left flank, but each agonisingly eluded right winger Eckersley.It was a frantic and frenzied five minute period midway through the first half however, where all the goals were scored. Another driving run from Cole freed up striker Taylor, whose cross come shot was parried over superbly by keeper Unwin. Taylor then returned the favour by delivering a low flighted cross which Cole pounced upon at the near post to give Catz the lead.Keble barely had time to assess their defensive error when an overlapping run from assured left back Ekhase forced another corner for Catz. Again Keble failed to deal with the danger and it was a towering leap from defender O’Keefe-O’Donovan that gave Catz their second.Keble rallied well and amidst some Catz back-slapping, hit back immediately. Captain Singh led the charge and found himself with just the keeper to beat. He made no mistake as he coolly slotted into the bottom right corner.The second half again saw numerous chances for both sides. Catz’ best efforts however, were comfortably dealt with by rock-solid centre back Orpin-Massey who hardly put a foot wrong all game. Keble pressed tirelessly for the equaliser with lofty forward Gajdus turning even the most hopeful long ball into something dangerous.On 75 minutes Keble believed they had got their reward when a delightful ball in from Collins was flicked past the keeper by substitute Parry. Wild scenes of jubilation were cut short however, when the Catz linesman ruled an apparent offside. No amount of protest from the Keble ranks could change the ref’s decision and the goal was disallowed. This decision seemed to extinguish the Keble challenge as the game petered to a finish.Keble captain Singh was frustrated by the result, “We certainly felt it was a goal and are gutted to come away with nothing.”
