Why I think £5,000 invested in these 2 cheap FTSE 100 stocks could help you retire early

first_img Investing in FTSE 100 shares after the recent market crash may not yield a high return in the short run. The index could yet revert to a decline after its rebound. And investors may experience paper losses over the coming months.However, in the long run, the FTSE 100 has the potential to deliver higher returns than other major asset classes. As such, now could be the right time to invest £5,000 in high-quality stocks.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…With that in mind, here are two large-cap shares that appear to offer favourable risk/reward opportunities for the long term.PolymetalInvestor uncertainty has contributed to a rise in the price of gold in recent months, with gold miners such as FTSE 100-listed Polymetal (LSE: POLY) enjoying improving financial outlooks. As a result, its shares have risen by 34% since the start of the year.Despite their rise, Polymetal’s shares continue to offer good value for money. They trade on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 12. And the company is forecast to post a rise in net profit of 7% in the next financial year. This could prove to be a relatively strong rate of growth compared to the wider FTSE 100, and it may just lead to improving investor sentiment towards the business.Looking ahead, the gold price may face a volatile period. There are uncertainties regarding when the global economy will return to a sense of normality following the lockdown. And this could impact on investor sentiment.However, Polymetal offers defensive characteristics due to gold’s appeal as a store of wealth. And the company has a dividend yield of around 5% too. So it could be a profitable FTSE 100 investment over the coming years.FTSE 100 retailer MorrisonsFTSE 100 retailers such as Morrisons (LSE: MRW) have experienced a challenging period during the lockdown. The company recently reported a rise in its like-for-like sales of 5.7% in the first quarter of the year. But it is likely to record significantly higher costs for the current year. For example, recruiting additional staff to meet high demand could raise its operating expenses and limit its profit growth potential.However, Morrisons seems to be well placed to capitalise on changing trends within the supermarket industry. It continues to invest in its online operations, which could prove to be increasingly popular among consumers over the coming years. It is also expanding its presence in the convenience store sector. This may diversify the business away from large-scale premises that have generally become less popular over recent years.Although Morrisons’ share price could experience a challenging period if the economy’s performance disappoints, the FTSE 100 company’s sound strategy and solid financial position may mean that it offers improving total return potential. As such, it could boost your portfolio’s performance and help you to bring your retirement date a step closer.

Dulwich College fended off Tregib CS, Edinburgh Academy, Stamford, Mount St Mary’s and Aylesbury GS to clinch the prize of a framed Team of the Month photo and 22 training tops.It was the London school’s first such award since 2004, when the XV was led by future England Saxons prop Tom Mercey.After a nine-game unbeaten run, including a defeat of Wellington College, they won the St Joseph’s College National Schools Festival under No 8 Anthony Bray, who took over the captaincy from the injured Dan Beese.The 11-7 win over Filton College was notable in that a school side outgunned an AASE college full of potential pro players. Dulwich had hardly put a foot wrong all weekend and they produced yet another inspired performance against Filton to win their first St Joseph’s title. Coach Sam Howard said: “We pride ourselves on defence and discipline – no real superstars but a side with a great team ethic and a desire to win.”That said, the role of Bray has been crucial, Dom Wroe-Wright has been terrific at openside, Tom O’Flaherty has proved a clever scrum-half and props Beno Obano and Jeremy Reason have been prominent ball-carriers.Top scorers are wing James Whiteford and centre Dom Fraser.Click here to see September’s School Team of the Month This article appeared in the January 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

1934: When low-wage workers fought back

first_imgUnion Square, 1934, some 60,000 communists gather in New York City to protest unemployment and capitalism.As 2014 begins, workers and oppressed people in the United States are looking at the fight ahead. Low-wage workers are on the move, demanding higher wages, union rights and dignity.Eighty years ago, workers were also fighting back and organizing for justice. The year 1934 was a turning point in the class struggle, and a great year for the working class. It was a year when low-paid workers shook the foundations of the U.S.The low-wage workers of the 1930s were often recent immigrants from Italy, Eastern Europe or Ireland who worked in industries. Some African-American workers, who had moved north trying to escape Jim Crow, also worked in the industries, receiving even lower wages. The steel mills, textile plants, packing houses and other urban industrial centers were known for their low wages, lengthy hours and unsafe working conditions.Beginning in 1929, the U.S. was experiencing the infamous Great Depression. Laid-off workers were poorly clothed, hungry and homeless across the country. Starting in 1931, there were huge uprisings of unemployed workers. The Hunger Marches, led by the Unemployed Councils, brought out thousands of workers to demand “Work or wages now!” “Don’t starve, fight!” was the slogan as veterans held the famous Bonus March of 1931, demanding benefits and occupying Washington, D.C.Many radical organizers looked for inspiration to the Soviet Union at the time, which was having an economic boom while the rest of the world was in a depression. Workers were inspired to fight back by communist leaders, who agitated about how unemployment, homelessness and poverty would be eliminated in a “Soviet America.”With unemployed workers and veterans already in motion, it was in 1934 that low-paid industrial workers took action on the job.The general strike waveIn San Francisco, the dockworkers shut the city down. They refused to unload the ships until their union was recognized and the humiliating “shape up” practices were ended. The union also demanded that Black workers be hired to work on the docks. When the longshore workers went on strike, workers all throughout the city joined them. President Franklin D. Roosevelt begged the strikers to return to work, as businesses throughout the country could not receive imported goods. Four longshore workers were killed by the National Guard, who opened fire on the striking workers.When the strike was finally over, the longshore workers had won many of their demands. They had union representation, much higher pay and better working conditions. Black workers were hired to work alongside white workers on the docks. The International Longshore and Warehouse Union still represents the dockworkers on the West Coast to this day.In Minneapolis, the drivers who delivered coal so people could heat their homes organized into the Teamsters union. Leaders of the local wanted to expand the union from simply representing the coal drivers to representing workers throughout the entire city. With the demand “Make Minneapolis a union town!” the coal drivers shut down the city.The rule was “no scab trucks.” No car could travel the streets of Minneapolis without a pass from the union. Activists from the union and community with baseball bats made sure of this. Soon, the National Guard was sent in, but the workers fought back.When the Minneapolis Teamsters strike ended, the workers were victorious. With Minneapolis as a base area, the Teamsters were able to expand to Kansas, Nebraska and other parts of the country, winning contracts and improving working conditions.In Toledo, Ohio, the workers at the Auto-Lite auto parts factory also shut the city down in a general strike. Workers across the city walked off the job in solidarity. The National Guard was sent in, and the workers fought back.In addition to the three municipal general strikes, 1934 was also the year of a national textile workers strike. Workers across the South in the National Textile Union went on strike to demand union representation. South Carolina’s governor declared a state of emergency in response to this uprising, and called out the National Guard and vigilante squads to battle the strikers.Then and nowThe American Federation of Labor was at first opposed to organizing industrial workers, instead focusing on “skilled trades.” In Minneapolis, San Francisco and Toledo, as well as in the textile mills of the South, it was communists, armed with the ideology of Marxism-Leninism, who led the struggle. To do it, they had to push back the right-wing labor bureaucrats.Communists like Samuel Darcy, Farrell Dobbs and William Z. Foster said all workers — “skilled” or “unskilled” — had the right to be unionized. They also said that racism had no place in the labor movement, and that Black workers and white workers should stand together against the bosses. They knew that successful strikes involved the support of the community, especially the unemployed and oppressed workers.Following the strike wave of 1934, Roosevelt signed the Wagner Act. The right of workers to organize unions became federal law. By the early 1940s, workers all across the country in steel mills, packing houses, rubber plants and auto plants had won union representation and better wages.In modern times, the Democratic Party often talks of bringing “good paying industrial jobs back to America.” They ignore the fact that industrial jobs only became good paying because of militant organizing and working-class struggle.Instead of trying to reimport industrial labor to the U.S., it is time for low-paid workers in fast-food restaurants, airports, hotels and everywhere to do what industrial workers did in 1934. It is time for them to fight back. Eighty years after 1934, we must raise the call for working-class power — and fight against capitalism!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Capitalism is killing us! WWP launches fightback webinar series

first_imgDuring this pandemic, which requires social distancing to save lives, Workers World Party launched a series of webinars to break the isolation and put forth a revolutionary perspective on the COVID-19 pandemic and the capitalist crisis. The first webinar, titled “Capitalism is killing us!” connected the ongoing crises of capitalism: the bosses’ total disregard for human life; the lack of quality health care for all; the genocidal conditions in U.S. prisons; the 47 million who have lost their jobs in the past few weeks; and the impact of U.S. sanctions on countries fighting COVID-19.  We also provided ideas on how to fight for revolutionary demands in this period, including WWP’s 10 socialist demands for the COVID-19 crisis. This event was not your typical Zoom call. With over 240 people on the webinar, including viewers from Tunisia, Germany and beyond, there is clearly a growing demand for revolutionary socialist analysis and strategy in this unprecedented catastrophe. Remarks by Monica Moorehead, a managing editor of Workers World newspaper; First Secretary of Workers World Party Larry Holmes; Makasi Motema, Peoples Power Assemblies-NYC; Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center;  Nate Chase, Workers World Party; and Taryn Fivek, sanctionskill.org can be seen at tinyurl.com/t44s3ga/. The April 2 webinar will connect the rising wave of strikes, including rent strikes, Amazon strikes, prisoner strikes, worker walkouts and even general strikes in some countries, which have occurred as capitalist governments across the world have failed to meet the needs of the people. This panel promises to include insightful analysis from the front lines of the class struggle.The global impact of COVID-19 has united the workers and oppressed in a common, worldwide struggle for health, safety, jobs and full pay during closings and layoffs. Rank-and-file resistance by workers — with or without unions — has closed schools, factories and workplaces in the interest of community health and has called out bosses who are mistreating workers in the midst of this grave situation.Join Workers World Party as we discuss the growing worker resistance to the capitalist response to COVID-19. Speakers will share experiences and strategize on building a united, working-class fightback.

Roxo wins award for “Best Tactic” on the national stage

first_imgReddIt Caitlyn Rollins and Sydney Green accepted the award from PRSSA in Indianapolis. (Photo courtesy of Sydney Green) Sam Bruton ReddIt The team conducted research to find the best way to appeal to the target audience.  They took advantage of the popularity of the Tanglewood Moms blog and mimicked its style to create a social media plan. The four “Roxstars” are Sydney Green, account executive and president of Roxo; Chandler Ebeier, social media manager; and Cami Fannin and Meggy Ralston, PR managers. Green, Fannin and Ralston are senior strategic communications majors, and Ebeier graduated from TCU in May.As a result of the Roxo team’s work, Tropical Smoothie Café saw double the clientele, an increase in social media engagement on Facebook and Instagram and improved brand awareness.  Roxo earned national affiliation status with the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) just before winning the award.  This affiliation allowed them to submit work in competition for the national award. They are one of 27 schools that have earned this affiliation status.  “We weren’t really expecting this award because the other agencies have been [affiliated with PRSSA] for a while,” said Caitlyn Rollins, senior strategic communications major and vice president of communications for Roxo.  “It shows just how good Roxo’s work is.”Caitlyn Rollins and Sydney Green accepted the award from PRSSA in Indianapolis. (Photo courtesy of Sydney Green)Rollins submitted the application that included a five-page essay detailing the social media tactics that earned the award.  Also outlined in the essay were specifics about the team’s research, execution of plans and statistics that showed the outcomes of the work.Green was the liaison between the team and the client.  “The client let us do what we thought was best and valued our opinions,” said Green.This award “reaffirmed that Roxo is producing the best work in the nation,” said Green.  “We signed a new client last week and were able to say that we won this award at the interview.”Rollins said she looks forward to submitting more entries for the work they are doing this year at Roxo.  They are working with clients including Textron, Acura and Samaritan House. “We have a big range of people we work with and we want to submit every award possible, including best student-run firm,” said Rollins.“It’s a good award to show upcoming students how good this agency is and how much real-world experience this work gives,” said Rollins.  “At Roxo it’s all about the students working directly with clients for real-world experience.”“It’s a real agency,” said Green. “Even though we are students, we carry ourselves like any other firm in the DFW area.” Sam is a sophomore Journalism major and Graphic Design minor from Celina, Texas.

Du Lich was guilty of “serious violations of Vietnamese press law,” the ministry said.The offending stories were about the Spratly and Paracel Islands, which have been claimed by several nations in the region including China and Vietnam, although Vietnam has ended up recognising China’s claim. Du Lich is accused of publishing “untruthful information” as well as inciting violence and sowing hatred among nations.Reporters Without Borders calls on the government to allow the media to freely discuss the issue of the Spratly and Paracel Islands.An article by journalist Trung Bao praised the courageous spirit of those who participated in anti-China demonstrations in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City last year. Du Lich’s editors have reportedly accepted the ministry’s decision but refuse to recognise they were wrong.
