Forget the Cash ISA! I’d invest my first £500 in these FTSE 100 stocks instead

first_img It can be tempting to park surplus funds in a Cash ISA, especially when starting out on the investing journey. Not only is it a convenient way to earn a passive income, its tax free too. But the interest rates available are so low right now, I’m not sure if the benefits are big enough to make up for such small returns. Balancing growth and dividends I’d much rather invest my first £500 in quality stocks. There are plenty of these in the FTSE 100 set. Ideally, these would be stocks that offer a good mix of rising share price and healthy dividend yield. To me that’s a much better way of getting started than chasing either capital appreciation or income generation only, while I’m still trying to figure out what investing strategy works best for me.  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…There’s an inherent catch to balancing growth and income, though. A high-growth stock will see a decline in dividend yield overtime (if dividend amounts stay unchanged) as the share price rises. The reverse is also true. Stocks with growing dividend yields are often those whose prices are falling. But there are a few shares that have managed the fine balance between growth and income.    Healthy stock price growth One of these is the FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals and healthcare provider GlaxoSmithKline (LSE:GSK), whose share price has risen by a healthy 32% since the first time I wrote about it a year ago. It does bear mentioning that it isn’t the best-performing growth stock, however. Consider JD Sports Fashion, another FTSE 100 company, whose share price almost doubled over the past year. However, GSK still has an edge because of its dividend yield of 5%. Not only is this higher than the FTSE 100 average yield of around 4.3%, its way better than JD’s yield, which has been at sub-1% levels for the past four years.     Higher than average dividend yield This isn’t to say that GSK offers the best yield in the FTSE 100 set, far from it. Consider the example of the tobacco biggie Imperial Brands. It has double the dividend yield that GSK does. But here’s the catch. IMB’s share price has been falling overtime, while GSK’s has been rising. Even if the two shares started with the same yield, just by virtue of diverging trends in the share price, IMB’s yield would look better right now. Of course, if I was an investor looking purely for income, I’d much rather consider IMB. But if I would like the option of re-allocating my investments to different stocks or a different asset class altogether or a combination of both, I’d much rather be holding GSK.  Safe haven for uncertain times GSK’s relatively lower volatility than IMB’s is another one of its advantages. As is to be expected from a defensive stock, its price fluctuates less during times of economic uncertainty or downturns than a cyclical stock’s does. Since the economy isn’t at its best right now, it’s a safer option to stick to defensives when starting out. I’d go for GSK.    Forget the Cash ISA!

If you have £200 a month to invest in 2020, opening a Stocks and Shares ISA could be a great way to start your savings journey.  Opening one allows you to capitalise on the opportunities presented in the stock market.Investing in the stock market might seem like a risky prospect at first. But, over the long term, multiple studies have shown this is the best way to grow your wealth.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…Indeed, one study found UK stocks returned 5.5% per annum on average after inflation for the past 110 years. That’s more than double the annual return cash investors earned.Tracker fundThe best way to replicate these returns is to invest in a low-cost FTSE 100, FTSE 250, or FTSE All-Share tracker fund. Most online stock brokers will let you do this from as little as £50 a month. Most online brokers also allow you to open a Stocks and Shares ISA. The great thing about these investment wrappers is their tax benefits. Every saver is allowed to contribute up to £20,000 a year into an ISA. Any capital gains or income earned on this savings nest eggs is tax-free. In fact, you don’t even need to declare ISA income on your tax return. This is ISAs are without a doubt one of the best products for savers. Especially higher and additional rate taxpayers. By making the most of the tax-efficient Stocks and Shares ISA wrapper, and keeping investment costs low, you can dramatically increase the performance of your investment returns over the long term. Contributions add upA monthly deposit of £200 might not seem like a huge amount of money at first. But, over the long term, these small contributions really add up.For example, an investment of £200 a month in an FTSE All-Share tracker fund for 20 years would be enough to build a nest egg worth £88,000. That’s assuming an average annual return of 5.5%.In reality, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have produced much better returns. Since inception three decades ago, the FTSE 100 has returned around 9% per annum. Meanwhile, the FTSE 250 is returned around 12%.It looks as if these higher rates of return are sustainable. The global economy is now more integrated than ever before and in the last 100 years, global conflicts held back equity returns. An annual rate of 12% would be enough to turn a monthly deposit of £200 into £200,000 after two decades of saving. After four decades, the pot could be worth as much as £2.4m. Therefore, if you’re looking to invest £200 a month in a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2020, the best place to invest your money could be a low-cost index fund. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are both great indexes to track. Further, because they’re the largest indexes in the UK, most providers offer tracker funds with low costs and charges.

There are two FTSE 100 income shares that stand out to me as offering a lot of value right now. These are global mining behemoths BHP Billiton (LSE: BHP) and Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO).FTSE 100 income shares under pressureShares in Rio and BHP have declined by 40% and 44% respectively over the past few weeks. Investors have been selling the shares because it looks as if these businesses will suffer a dramatic decline in demand for their output over the next few months.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…Indeed, initial estimates from Goldman Sachs suggest global demand for all commodities has declined around 25% since the beginning of 2020.However, BHP and Rio’s size means that these FTSE 100 income shares are, to some extent, insulated from the market turbulence.For example, Rio’s average production cost per tonne of iron ore is below $30. That’s compared to the current market price of $90. These numbers suggest Rio is still making a healthy profit on its iron ore production. It should continue to earn a profit on production even if prices fall a further 50% from current levels.The same is true of BHP, the world’s biggest miner by market capitalisation. It reported that unit costs at its Pilbara iron ore operations in Western Australia fell below $13 per tonne last year.That’s the lowest cost of production for the commodity in the world. The company is also earning a margin of more than 100% on its copper production. That’s even after recent price declines.These competitive advantages suggest that BHP and Rio will be able to emerge from the current situation in relatively good health. Further, both companies have robust balance sheets. At the end of its last reporting period, BHP’s net gearing ratio was 25.8%. After several years of focusing on reducing debt, Rio’s rate was just 8.5%.There have also been suggestions that China will undertake a massive fiscal stimulus to kick-start the country’s economic recovery. If it happens, this should support commodity prices. That can only be good news for Rio and BHP.For its part, BHP informed its investors last week that, so far, “operations had not been materially impacted so far by the coronavirus pandemic.“Market overreactionConsidering all of the above, it seems as if the market has overreacted by sending the shares of these FTSE 100 income shares down 40%. They have low production costs and strong balance sheets. And the potential for economic stimulus suggests they are well-placed to navigate the current economic environment. They could even emerge stronger if smaller competitors with higher costs are forced out of business.As such, now could be the time to make the most of the market’s short-term outlook. After recent declines, shares in Rio are trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 8. BHP is dealing at a multiple of 7. Considering how well community prices are holding up, it appears as if these estimates remain accurate. Shares in Rio also currently offer a yield of 8%. Meanwhile, BHP offers its investors a yield of 10%. Even if the two companies cut these distributions in half, yields of 4% and 5% are still highly attractive in the current interest rate environment. £10k to invest? 2 FTSE 100 income shares I’d buy today after the market crash I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

A one out double for Austen Wade followed by a run-scoring single for the team leader in RBIs, Cam Warner, put the Frogs ahead 1-0. Evan Skoug then singled before Josh Watson smacked a run-scoring single to right center.“I really feel like we are turning a corner offensively,” said TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle. “Especially against a great team and a good pitching staff. I’m really proud of the way we played today.”Up 2-0 with two runners on base, Nolan Brown hit a hard ground ball that got away from third baseman Garrett Benge which was ruled an error. Shortstop Jacob Chappell then picked up the ball and tried to get Watson at second, but threw it into right field allowing two runs to score.TCU starting pitcher Nick Lodolo had a shutout working through five innings with six strikeouts and was looking like the highly-touted pitcher that was drafted 41st overall in the 2016 MLB draft. Though he has certainly shined at times this season, Lodolo has been plagued by first inning runs and short outings.The freshman had given up 12 of his 13 runs in the first innings of his five starts entering Saturday, and had only recorded an out past the fifth inning in one of his starts.Lodolo looked to have turned the corner when he got through five innings of dominant ball, but a deep start escaped him again as he loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth.Fellow freshman Charles King came on in the most difficult situation possible for a reliever and gave up a two run single and a walk. Schlossnagle had seen enough as he called on yet another freshman, Trey Morris, with the bases full and still nobody out in a 4-2 game.Morris got a groundout to start his outing, but then gave up a two run triple that tied the game. A relay from Wade in right center field to Warner and then on to Skoug at home cut down the go-ahead run for the time being.Morris then got a would-be inning ending ground ball to Luken Baker at first, but he booted it, giving the Cowboys their first lead at 5-4. Morris escaped the inning with a fly out to center.The Horned Frogs quickly evened the game in the bottom of the sixth as Baker led off with a single followed by a two-base error on a dropped fly ball hit by Watson. Brown then grounded out to second base, scoring Baker and tying the game at five.Morris set down OSU in the seventh despite surrendering a hit and a walk, sending the Frogs to the plate after the stretch.Ryan Merrill and pinch-hitter Austin Ingraham both struck out to open the inning, but as has been common through the first 21 games, the Frogs started a two-out rally. Wade walked on seven pitches, marking the seventh time he had reached base in nine trips to the plate in the series. Wade has now reached base safely in 10 straight games.“The last three weeks for me, I haven’t seen the hits fall, but I’m happy with how my at-bats go,” Wade said. “I try to put myself in the best counts that I possibly can.”After the walk, Warner singled hard back up the middle to set up a two out, two on situation for Skoug. The catcher ripped a two-strike ground ball back up the middle, scoring Wade and putting the Frogs ahead for good, 6-5.Skoug has struggled throughout the vast majority of the season. His average has held steady around .200, while he has struck out in nearly half of his at-bats. Skoug’s fortunes seem to be turning though, as he hit a three-run homer on Friday and went 2-3 on Saturday with the big seventh inning game-winning RBI.“My confidence is back. I’m feeling really comfortable at the plate,” Skoug said. “I have put in a lot of work in the cages and with the coaches, so I feel like my swing is more simple and I’m back to being me, not worrying about numbers. I’m just going out there and hitting the ball hard.”Schlossnagle turned to a fourth freshman and Friday night’s winning pitcher, Haylen Green, for the eighth. Green, who struck out the only batter he faced on Friday, struck out two in a clean frame on Saturday.Closer Durbin Feltman came on in the ninth for the second straight night, looking for his sixth save in six tries this season. He worked around a one out single using two strikeouts and a fly ball to right field to seal the win and ensure a series victory for the Horned Frogs. The save moved Feltman to a perfect 15 out of 15 in save opportunities in his two years at TCU.“[Feltman] has been having success, but his stuff hasn’t been the same, his command hasn’t been as good to start the season, but it is really coming on because we are pitching him more,” Schlossnagle said. “In college baseball, you only play four times a week, so if your closer doesn’t throw on the weekend, that’s not good.”For the second straight night, a TCU freshman picked up their first win of the their career. Friday it was Green, Saturday it was Morris.The Frogs have trailed in 16 of 21 games this year, but have seen significant success, winning 11 of those contests. TCU will shoot for the sweep of the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. as Brian Howard takes the hill. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN 2.

FWAA names 2017 freshman All-America team

first_imgLocal News Pinterest Facebook Twitter Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Facebook FWAA names 2017 freshman All-America team By admin – January 10, 2018 ATLANTA The 17th annual Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-America Team features two players taking part in tonight’s College Football Playoff National Championship at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm and right tackle Andrew Thomas are the Bulldogs’ eighth and ninth all-time FWAA Freshman All-America selections, the first at each of their respective positions.Georgia beat writer Chip Towers compared Fromm to such Bulldogs’ quarterback greats as Matthew Stafford, Eric Zeier, David Greene and Aaron Murray.“None of them played with the poise and the consistency that I have witnessed from Jake Fromm this season,” Towers told SEC Country. “That’s reflected in his pass efficiency rating (166.4), which ranks fourth nationally, and also in Georgia’s overall record (13-1). Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney has given Fromm the latitude to change plays at the line of scrimmage, which is a reflection of his ability to process mountains of information and be able to regurgitate it on the fly in the heat of the moment.”Thomas not only started every game, but he also played most every snap on the Georgia offensive line.“What gave him the edge over a couple of 5-star prospects was exceptional technique, which he credits first to his training at Atlanta’s Pace Academy High School,” Towers said. “Thomas also has the size, quickness and strength to match up with athletic defensive ends of the SEC. Look for him to make the move to left tackle for Georgia next season.”Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley was selected as the FWAA First-Year Coach of the Year after leading the Sooners into the College Football Playoff in his first year at the helm.Kenneth Murray also represented Oklahoma on the FWAA Freshman All-America team, one of four linebackers chosen.The Big Ten led the FWAA with six players selected, followed by the SEC (5), the Pac-12 (4) and the ACC, Mountain West Conference and Conference USA, each of which had three players. The 10 FBS conferences are represented on the 30-man team, and there is also a player from an independent school.The 13-person panel of nationally-prominent college football experts represented each of the FBS conferences along with independents in the selecting the team.Both true freshmen (20 players) and redshirt freshmen (10 players) were considered for the team and are so noted on the list below.There are five former FWAA Freshman All-American selections playing in tonight’s game:From Alabama• All-SEC Punter JK Scott (2014)• All-SEC WR Calvin Ridley (2015)From Georgia• All-SEC RB Nick Chubb (2014)• TE Isaac Nautta (2016)• K Rodrigo Blankenship (2016)2017 FWAA FRESHMAN ALL-AMERICA TEAMOFFENSE (13)QB • Jake Fromm, Georgia (6-2, 225, Warner Robins, Ga.)RB • Spencer Brown, UAB (6-0, 235, Kimberly, Ala.)RB • AJ Dillon, Boston College (6-0, 240, New London, Conn.)RB • Jonathan Taylor, Wisconsin (5-11, 214, Salem, N.J.)WR • Justin Hall, Ball State (5-9, 160, Douglasville, Ga.)WR • McLane Mannix, Nevada (5-10, 175, Midland, Texas)WR JD Spielman, Nebraska (5-9, 180, Eden Prairie, Minn.)TE • Matt Bushman, BYU (6-5, 230, Tucson, Ariz.)OT Alaric Jackson, Iowa (6-7, 320, Detroit, Mich.)OT • Andrew Thomas, Georgia (6-5, 320, Lithonia, Ga.)G • Navaughn Donaldson, Miami (6-6, 350, Miami, Fla.)G • Trey Smith, Tennessee (6-6, 320, Jackson, Tenn.)C Tyler Biadasz, Wisconsin (6-3, 316, Amherst, Wis.)DEFENSE (13)DE Curtis Weaver, Boise State (6-3, 252, Long Beach, Calif.)DE • Kylan Wilborn, Arizona (6-2, 245, Northridge, Calif.)DT Ross Blacklock, TCU (6-4, 326, Missouri City, Texas)DT • Jordon Scott, Oregon (6-1, 333, Largo, Fla.)LB Racheem Boothe, Southern Miss (6-0, 210, Bassfield, Miss.)LB Paddy Fisher, Northwestern (6-4, 245, Katy, Texas)LB • Kenneth Murray, Oklahoma (6-2, 242, Missouri City, Texas)LB • Colin Schooler, Arizona (6-0, 226, Dana Point, Calif.)DB • T.J.
