The COVID-19 crisis highlights a golden rule of investing

first_imgThe COVID-19 crisis highlights a golden rule of investing  Michael Baxter | Wednesday, 4th March, 2020 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Pity the individual who chose to begin their investment journey a few weeks ago. Especially pity them if they had a big lump sum and invested it all. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the markets will recover, eventually. But this situation does illustrate a golden rule of investing — never throw all your money at the stock market in one go.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…Actually, on thinking about it, I would not pity an investor who has just begun their investment journey if they had followed this rule — I would envy them.  The markets have further to fallAlready we have seen a share rout, followed by a mini recovery, and then further falls. The mini recovery saw many conclude that shares had hit bottom, that ‘now was a time to buy.’Such false dawns are common occurrences during stock market crises. The infamous 1929 crash saw many short-lived recoveries which tempted shareholders back in.COVID-19 is spreading exponentially. It makes most of us nervous about our own health and the health of loved ones — is that a seasonal cold, or the dreaded virus? We wouldn’t be human if those thoughts didn’t cross our minds every time there’s a sneeze. I believe the markets are underestimating the likely spread of the virus and its economic impact. They always are lousy at judging something that changes exponentially. Maybe it’s in our genes — Ray Kurzweil, the famous futurologist and Google’s Director of Engineering has said that our evolutionary past means we have no instinctive understanding of exponential — we might get it intellectually, but not in our gut. As the virus spreads, we will change our behaviour, employers may eventually become more nervous about workers spreading the virus than about lost production, and markets will fall a lot further.As for predicting the recovery, getting the timing right is nigh on impossible.Diversify over timeThat is why diversification over time is so important. If you plough all your money into stocks in one go, you risk timing your investment with stock market falls. Sure, if you sit tight you will probably regain your money eventually, but you can do better.If, instead, you drip feed your money into the market — say once a month for three years, or once every three months, you are limiting the risk while increasing the chances that that you will benefit from a recovery.Three different situations, same responseLet’s say that you were savvy enough to have liquidated your portfolio at market peak, you have a lump sum for some other reason, or you invest a proportion of your income every month.I would say spread out your investment over three years. If you invest a proportion of your income every month, then relax, you are following that strategy by default.Follow that approach and just as investment losses occur on the falls, profits will accrue on the rises.  Image source: Getty Images.

It’s not possible to tell which companies will survive in the next few months or years.However, over the past few decades, the market has been through many peaks and troughs. On every occasion, the index has usually recovered its losses over the long run. In most cases, the FTSE 100 has gone on to create new highs as well. Therefore, I’d take advantage of the recent stock market crash by buying a basket of cheap FTSE 100 shares.Diversifying your portfolio across a range of companies means that you spread risk. That means you are less reliant on a small number of businesses to generate your profits. So you’re less likely to suffer a big financial hit if one investment starts to struggle. This is more important than ever in the current market environment. Defensive investments Most of the FTSE 100’s constituents are currently dealing below the level they started the year. This may suggest that the stocks offer a margin of safety. But as it’s difficult to tell which business will prosper and which will struggle over the next few months, focusing on defensive investments may be best. Defensive stocks are less likely to suffer in a downturn. This means cheap FTSE 100 shares like Halma, Britvic, Coca-Cola HBC and Tesco could be attractive investments to own over the long run.All of these companies exhibit defensive qualities and attractive income credentials. That suggests they could yield a steady income stream that rises in line with inflation over the long term. What’s more, all of these businesses are now trading at a discount. Their dividend yields have risen above historical averages, which may suggest they offer a margin of safety. Investor sentiment Clearly, the outlook for these companies is far from certain. Nevertheless, owning a diverse basket of these stocks could help you improve your financial situation over the long run. What’s more, when investor sentiment improves, these stocks may produce high capital returns for shareholders. As covered above, the FTSE 100 has healthy long-term recovery potential, even after one of the worst downturns in history. Therefore, whether you have £1k or £100k to invest today, now could be a great time to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares. These companies might not yield a positive return in the short term, but over the long run, these assets could boost your financial prospects.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaveslast_img read more

Forget coronavirus penny stocks! I think there’s an easier way to get rich

first_imgForget coronavirus penny stocks! I think there’s an easier way to get rich The massive rebound in markets over the past few months has seen a lot of new investors signing up for a slice of the action. And who can really blame them when you have many coronavirus-related penny stocks multi-bagging in value?Is this an easy route to riches? Probably not, and here’s why.  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 problem with penny stocksNow, don’t get me wrong: you certainly can become very wealthy if you buy the right minnows at the right time. But there’s the rub – identifying penny share winners and timing your purchases early enough is fiendishly difficult given the huge number of factors that determine whether a company succeeds or not. A potentially great business doesn’t always translate to a great investment. As well as being hard to sort the wheat from the chaff, those wanting to invest in this part of the market must also be aware of how ‘illiquid’ penny stocks can be. Liquidity means how easy it is to buy or sell something without affecting its price. Illiquidity can be great when the herd wants to buy (causing shares to jump) but a nightmare when everyone sprints to the exit. Forced sellers must often accept prices that, in normal circumstances, they would laugh at. The huge volatility seen in penny stocks is worth remembering right now. It would be wrong to assume that many of those coronavirus-linked stocks that have soared over the past few months won’t suddenly tumble in value. This may be due to another broad market crash, traders banking profits, or news that the products they supply are no longer needed or ineffective.It doesn’t stop there with penny stock drawbacks. Young companies, particularly those in high-risk, high-reward sectors, often need to tap the market for more cash just to keep the lights on. Sadly, this isn’t always forthcoming and many are forced to fold, making the shares worthless.  Make no mistake, penny stocks can make you rich but they’re also far more likely to leave you poor.A better solutionRather than attempt to find the needle in a haystack, there are other, safer ways of tapping into healthcare or biotechnology.For the former, you could always buy a FTSE 100 juggernaut like AstraZeneca or GlaxoSmithKline. For the latter, you can buy active funds that specialise in this part of the market. Two of the most popular are Biotech Growth Trust (LSE: BIOG) and International Biotechnology Trust (LSE: IBT). Another option is to buy passive funds that focus on these themes. Like their active equivalents, these give instant diversification to holders by investing in a large number of stocks. And since they’re only out to track rather than beat indexes, the fees are a lot lower.Examples include the iShares Healthcare Innovation UCITS ETF. The iShares Ageing Population UCITS ETF, which gives exposure to companies providing products and services to those in their golden years (many of which will be healthcare-related), is also worth considering. Both funds have ongoing charges of just 0.4%. Bottom lineA punt on coronavirus-related penny stocks might make you rich but there’s a very real chance it will go wrong. If you’re tempted, I’d suggest only using money you can afford to lose. Put the majority of your capital to work in far less risky options.  Paul Summers | Saturday, 13th June, 2020 Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Last week, the age at which most people start to receive their State Pension officially hit 66. This was just the latest in a string of significant changes to the State Pension that have been introduced in recent years. It’s not going to be the last. The new change means that men and women born between 6 October 1954, and 5 April 1960, will start receiving their State Pension on their 66th birthday. 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…For those born after these dates, there’ll be a phased increase in the pension age to 67. A further hike in the pension age to 68 is also planned. These changes might be painful for some future retirees. Unfortunately, as the UK population gets older, they seem to be necessary. It’s also likely there’ll be further changes to the pension system in the years ahead. The best way to protect yourself from these changes is to set up a personal pension. That’s the approach I’m using to make sure I have enough money to retire at a date that suits me, not the government. State Pension protectionI’m planning to buy a selection of high-quality blue-chip stocks in a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) to protect myself from further State Pension changes. SIPPs are a great way to save the future. Any contributions attract tax relief at your marginal tax rate, that’s 20% for basic taxpayers. On top of this, any income or capital gains earned on assets held inside these wrappers are not taxed. This makes them extremely tax-efficient instruments. They’re also straightforward to open and operate. Most online stockbrokers now offer SIPP products, and they’re managed in the same way as an online stockbroking account. The provider takes care of all the backend work for investors. According to my figures, it’s relatively straightforward to build a large financial nest egg using a SIPP wrapper. Over the past three decades, a portfolio of blue-chip stocks has produced an average annual return for investors of 8%. At this rate of return, a monthly investment of £300, or £240 before tax relief of 20%, could grow to be worth £450k after 30 years. This would be enough to provide an annual income of more than £11k in retirement. Blue-chip diversificationI’m sticking with high-quality blue-chip stocks to provide this return. Companies with strong balance sheets, diversified operations and track records of returning cash to investors with dividends, are on my radar. Some examples include GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, and Reckitt Benckiser. By building a diversified portfolio of these companies, I believe it’s possible to generate a sizeable financial nest egg, which will help protect my finances against future State Pension increases. Anyone can follow this relatively straightforward strategy. Indeed, as I noted above, most online stock brokers now offer SIPP wrappers, which are relatively straightforward to open and manage. Therefore, now could be the perfect time to start saving for the future.
