£5,000 to invest? This is what I’d do now to get rich and retire early

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Investing nowadays is a tough job due to high levels of uncertainty. Valuation guru Aswath Damodoran expressed his views on how to get rich now.Investing in the pastI previously wrote about Warren Buffett’s strategy and how it changed. The legendary investor used to follow Benjamin Graham’s approach to stock picking. It was largely quantitative, as it relied on purely financial data. Graham did not use any qualitative information, like a company’s competitive landscape or its product portfolio diversification to make investment decisions.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 after having left Graham’s company – Buffett used to work there as an employee – he formed his own company, Berkshire Hathaway. He summarised his investment approach as “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price, than a fair company at a wonderful price”. In other words, it’s better to buy a great company with a wonderful potential than a cheap but average company.Damodoran, an equity valuation guru, also used to have a rather numerical approach. In his book, Investment valuation, he explains things like discounted cash flows, price-to-earnings (P/E), and price-to-book (P/B) ratios. Most of this book’s chapters are devoted to evaluating accounting data rather than growth prospects.Companies with lower debt levels, lower P/E and P/B ratios, as well as stable cash flows prove to be less of a risk and better value investments. What Damodoran says nowHowever, in an interview to ETNow, Damodoran said that the last decade and the COVID-19 crisis have meant that old-style value investing has no meaning these days. In other words, in order to decide whether to invest in a company, you have to understand the company’s success story, not just the mechanical numbers such as P/E and P/B ratios. What is meant by the success story? Well, it’s not just the history of a firm. It also involves analysing the industry’s overall chances to excel and the company’s competitive landscape. Understanding the firm’s product portfolio and how much each product contributes to the sales revenue is also important.Last but not least, the quality of the company’s management greatly helps a company to succeed. It is particularly important when a firm has to navigate through crises. Another problem that can happen to a company and where management can be a great help is when products that a company sells become out of date. For example, when smartphones became the new norm, many electronics companies had to adapt to this. Firms that failed to do so lost a large share of their sales and profits.How to get rich nowAll this doesn’t mean that you have to rely on purely qualitative information when you buy shares. Instead, it is worthwhile to combine the two approaches mentioned above. To be a great investor, you have to see the big picture of the company, its financials, its future, and the industry as a whole.Damodoran also makes an interesting point that every crisis doesn’t just produce losers, it also producers winners. So, if a company is big enough in size, it is likely to survive as smaller competitors go out of business. It was the famous dot-com bubble that led to the rise of Amazon. Likewise, the coronavirus crisis will also produce true winners. In my view, FTSE 100 investors will get rich and retire early if they choose large companies with great success stories that are also relatively cheap and pay dividends.   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.

FTSE 100: 2 cheap shares I’d buy today

first_img The FTSE 100 is full of cheap shares at present. Two companies, in particular, stand out to me as being deeply undervalued despite their strong balance sheets and rising profits. FTSE 100 stocks The first organisation on my list is insurance giant Aviva (LSE: AV). There’s a lot to like about this business, in my opinion. It’s one of the largest pension and savings companies in the UK, and it is one of the most trusted financial brands in the country, according to my research. 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…Unfortunately, over the past few years, the company seems to have made several missteps that have depressed investor sentiment. It was also without a CEO for a few months. These issues now seem to be behind the enterprise. A new management team is working to reduce costs and improve efficiency. There are also disposals in the works to remove non-core businesses. I think these efforts should help streamline the business as we advance. That should lead to enhanced profit margins and bigger returns for investors. Even if one were to ignore this potential, Aviva looks to me to be dirt-cheap at current levels. Indeed, the shares are trading below the company’s book value, which suggests they offer a wide margin of safety.On top of this, the stock currently supports a dividend yield of 9.4%. That is more than double the market average. As cheap shares go, I think Aviva is one of the most attractive on the market right now. Buying cheap sharesThe other company I have my eye on is Phoenix Group (LSE: PHNX). This firm operates a relatively complex business model. It buys books of life and pension policies from other businesses and takes on their management. By combining the management of all of these products under one roof, Phoenix can achieve economies of scale that are not available to other firms. This is a win-win for both parties. The seller can offload policies it doesn’t necessarily want to manage and unlock capital. Meanwhile, Phoenix earns money by pushing down costs and pocketing excess fee margins. If the company’s historical cash returns are anything to go by, this business is exceptionally lucrative. The dividend yield on Phoenix’s shares has averaged 6.5% for the past five years. As pension and life insurance policies can run for decades, I’m optimistic that Phoenix can maintain this level of income distribution in the long term. That’s why I’d buy this FTSE 100 stock for a portfolio of cheap shares. In the current interest rate environment, a dividend yield of 6.5% looks extremely attractive to me. What’s more, the stock may produce capital returns as the business continues to acquire new business. Thanks to previous acquisitions, net income has roughly doubled over the past six years. Considering the size of the pension and life insurance market in the UK, I reckon this can continue.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Block texting while driving on your teen’s phone? There’s an app…

In classrooms, at dates, in performances, people of all ages text these days. While this might be disrespectful and inappropriate, the more disconcerting part of texting is the number of people that do it while driving.Despite it being illegal in the state and 45 others in the U.S., despite the growing trend of people in accidents from texting, despite the government, highways, and insurance companies doing everything they can to try and stop the trend, people proceed to be on their phone while driving, and it shows in the statistics. People who read or write text messages while driving are 23% more likely to be in a car crash than other drivers, leading to more than 1.6 million auto crashes each year and causing 500,000 injuries and 6,000 deaths.There, however, are several apps that block texts from being received while driving. Here’s a breakdown of the most popular ones. These apps are perfect for teen drivers.CellcontrolCellcontrol is a subscription-based service that features a device inserted under the dashboard and an accompanying app that blocks your teen from sending or receiving texts while driving. It also disables other phone features while the car is in motion, such as using email or accessing the camera. You’ll get a text or e-mail alert if Cellcontrol is deactivated or removed. (For Android™ and iOS)Drive Safe ModeThis app prevents texting and emailing while driving. It can notify a parent or guardian when the phone is in use and if the driver shuts off the app while on the road. Signup takes only a few minutes. (For Android and iOS)Live2TxtLive2Txt is an app that lets you block incoming texts and calls while driving. Turn the app on when you get behind the wheel, and you’ll silence your smartphone from incoming notifications, texts and calls. When you receive a message, the app will alert the sender with a customized message that you’re unable to respond at the moment. (For Android)SafeDriveSafeDrive rewards you with points that you can use for discounts at participating stores for not texting while driving as long as you’re going at least 6 mph. All you have to do is activate it and drive. (For Android and iOS)Drivesafe.ly®DriveSafe.ly includes One Tap operation and auto-on functionality that lets users seamlessly interact with their phone while driving. Drivesafe.ly automatically reads the callers’ name, text messages, and emails aloud. You can also set it to auto-respond without needing to touch the device. (For Android)If you need to break the habit or want to instill good driving habits in your teen, these apps provide the perfect protection and even incentive for waiting to text when not driving. Download these apps to block texting while driving Gov.

Main Ridge House / McAllister Alcock Architects

The Main Ridge house sits within an established working vineyard located on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. The brief was for a comfortable 4 bedroom family home with a visual connection to the vines and which provided an area suitable for entertaining the international guests who visit our clients’ winery.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe are ‘urban architects’, used to working with the constraints of existing built form and planning regulations and creating architecture in residual urban space. We consider our work to be contextual, an architectural response to the urban ‘found’ conditions. In this case the context for the house was abstract; the no site had no clear ‘hero’ views with which to orientate the building. The best northern solar orientation faces away from the vines, while to the west an existing artificial cutting separated the house site from the vines and the view to the east was dominated by a large and visually ‘messy’ strawberry farm. However there were a series of lovely, albeit modest aspects: to the north a view beneath trees full of dappled light and a promise of what lies beyond; to the south a gentle rolling grassy slope terminating at the vines; The architecture retains the memory of these existing landscape vistas and uses them as an ordering device – externally with the form and placement of the new building and internally with the orientation of the inside spaces. On approach the house is hidden by two 20 metre long angled weathered ‘Coreten’ steel walls. On entering through a gap between the walls – reminiscent of the original cutting – the house and site reveal themselves.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe residence is comprised of pavilions enclosing three sides of a sheltered, north facing courtyard. The courtyard design maximises northern light to the interior and creates zones within the home: one for more private family living and another that can also cater for entertaining guests. A sculptured limed plywood ceiling provides a horizontal ribbon linking the public and private areas of the main pavilion, and contributes visual ‘drama’ while still maintaining a comfortable residential scale. A pod-like timber ‘drum’ marks the pivot point between the public and private realms and hides a butler’s pantry, the staircase to the wine cellar, and sliding doors to zone the spaces.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathAt the start of the project our clients were not overly impressed with the attributes of their site and were not fond of the view to the strawberry farm. The design of the residence has changed our clients’ perception of their environs by carefully selecting and ‘framing’ vignettes so that the inhabitants are encouraged to pause, and appreciate the special characteristics of a landscape setting that has more ‘depth’ than just the strong graphic rows of grapevines.

Turkish society has a right to independent and diverse news media. The Turkish government’s current efforts to tackle the Kurdish issue should also include freedom of expression.”The one-month suspension of Günlük was ordered by Istanbul assizes court No. 13 on 22 August under article 7 of the 1991 Anti-terrorism Law 3713 on the grounds that the newspaper published a column that was deemed to be propaganda in support of the PKK, regarded as a terrorist organisation by both the Turkish government and the European Union.The column was by Amir Hassanpour, an Iranian Kurdish linguist who is currently associate professor at Toronto University’s Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations. Hassanpour often writes about the harassment of Turkey’s Kurdish minority.Calling the suspension “unjust,” Günlük editor Filiz Koçali said she was surprised it came a day after a National Security Council meeting that concluded with the government announcing it would pursue its policy of “opening” towards the Kurds. “You cannot talk about a democratic opening process if Kurds are not allowed to say what is on their minds,” Koçali said.Koçali, the newspaper’s owner, Ziya Ciçekçi, one of its editors, Yüksel Genç, and one of its columnists, Veysi Sarisözen, are meanwhile all facing up to five years in prison on separate charges of pro-PKK propaganda in articles and photos published in April and June. The cases will come to trial in Istanbul in the coming months.During the one month suspension, Günlük’s staff has decided to publish a new newspaper called Demokratik Açilim (Democratic Opening).The one-month suspension of Özgür Ortam was ordered by Istanbul assizes court No. 10 on 25 August because two articles in the weekly’s 17 August issue about the start of the Kurdish armed struggle on 15 August 1984, were deemed to have been pro-PKK propaganda.Last month was the 25th anniversary of the start of Kurdish separatist violence in Turkey, which has left an estimated toll of 45,000 dead. As part of a drive to grant more rights to the Kurdish community, the government is planning to rename Kurdish villages whose names have been Turkified and to promote the use of the Kurdish language in schools.

In its 93rd anniversary, one of the participating tequila brands is Sauza Tequila, arguably the first and last name in fine tequila.But Mijares and Sauza have a much deeper connection than just the upcoming anniversary. Brandon Bartlett, Senior Sales Manager for Beam, Inc., owners of Sauza Tequila says, “Mijares has been using Sauza Tequila as their house tequila for years and years. I’ve been dealing with Mijares for the last eight years and the Mijares/Sauza relationship started way before me.”Why Sauza? Perhaps it’s because Mijares appreciates quality margaritas, and Sauza produces arguably the best. “Sauza has a certain flavor profile that they really like which is why they use it for their house margarita,” says Bartlett.“Sauza has got a very, very fresh agave flavor. If you try tequila side by side, you’re going to find some that tastes very, very sweet. You’re going to taste some that tastes very, very hot, meaning high alcohol or this burning sensation. Sauza pride itself on just a very light, fresh agave taste,” Bartlett adds.The reason for this special taste, Bartlett explains, it because, “we use a gentle extraction method when making our tequila. Once the agave has been harvested, it basically becomes liquid within 24 hours, so the agave isn’t sitting around. When we say fresh, we literally mean fresh. It’s almost as if a fisherman catches a fish and it’s on the table that night.”Tequila lovers worldwide appreciate the quality Sauza produces, and the brand has won numerous awards over the years. When asked what some of these awards are, Bartlett says, “There’s literally too many to list. Every spirit award that’s out there, we won at one shape or form.”Bartlett adds, “The Sauza Tequila that they (Mijares) are using in their fresh house margaritas, is Sauza Gold. We recently came out with Sauza Blue which is 100% blue agave. Also very popular on the high end scale is Sauza Hornitos. It’s the next step up. Tres Generaciones is also part of the premium family line up and is 100% organic. New additions to the Sauza family also include Hornitos Lime Shot and Sauza XA which is an Extra Anejo that’s been aged three years.”Interesting to note, is that Don Cenobio Sauza, founder of Sauza Tequila, was the first person to introduce tequila to the masses.As Bartlett explains, “Don Cenobio Sauza, he was literally the first guy to call what everybody was making ‘tequila,’ and he was also the first guy to export to the US. So the Sauza family, like the Mijares family, has been around a long time.”The tradition and history behind Sauza and Mijares, Bartlett believes, may be “one of the reasons that we all get along so well with R-lene and Alice and Tom. Sauza is a strong family and the Mijares family is a strong family. I think they respect that.”Two strong families. Two respected names. Each supporting each other and respecting each other. Ham and eggs, wine and cheese, Mijares and Sauza. It just fits.Mijares Restaurant is located at 145 Palmetto Drive.
