No savings at 50? You still have time to get rich with UK shares!

first_img It’s never too late to start investing. It’s a mantra we will live and die by here at The Motley Fool. Even if you’re 50 years of age and starting off with zilch by way of savings and investments, there’s still time to build a handsome retirement nest egg with UK shares.I’m not going to say it’ll be easy to do for those closing in on retirement. A time frame of around a decade-and-a-half means that you need to be extremely disciplined in saving money each and every month. Mistakes have to be far and few between, too, meaning that the importance of devising and following a sound investment strategy from the get-go is critical. A global recession that threatens to damage corporate earnings over the next few years at least is another obstacle that stock investors need to hurdle.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…History shows us that none of these problems are insurmountable, though. In fact, believe there’s never been a better time to begin investing with UK shares given the wealth of information out there designed to put you on the right track.Play the stock market crashThe 2020 stock market crash is another reason why 50-year-olds can expect to get rich by retirement. Why? Well it allows investors with a sound investment strategy to build their stock portfolios at ultra-low cost. This means that they can maximise their returns when they come to eventually sell their UK shares (should they choose to do so). Over the long term the value of their shares is likely to have grown as the economic recovery has clicked through the gears.Studies show us that share investors who invest for 10 years or more tend to make returns of between 8% and 10% a year. And the market crash improves your chances of hitting those heady heights. Someone who manages to buy a few hundred pounds’ worth of UK shares each month can expect to make big profits in the fullness of time.Retire in comfort with UK sharesLet me show you how this works in real life. Let’s say you set aside £400 a month to invest in UK shares. By reinvesting the dividends you receive from your stocks you can expect to make, over a 15-year period, somewhere between £135,000 and £159,000 based on those proven rates of return.Unless you’re extremely, extremely lucky you won’t make that sort of return anywhere else. You certainly won’t by saving in a cash account. Let’s say that you park that £400 a month into an instant-access Cash ISA instead. Should current interest rates stay the same you’re likely to make a return of £77k over 15 years at best (the best-paying Cash ISA on the market only pays 0.9%).This is why I invest the bulk of my money in UK shares. Whether you’re 25 or 50 years of age you can still expect to get rich by buying high-quality shares. And there’s plenty of help out there to put you on the path to making big investment returns.

Second Sight Medical Products (EYES) shares rise 1,000%. Should I buy?

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.center_img In the slightly crazy space that global stock markets have become over recent months, I’ve seen some large moves. The GameStop saga is one of the most prolific cases, where retail investors drove the stock up incredibly quickly in a matter of days. Another case has been getting a lot of attention over the past couple of weeks. This is Second Sight Medical Products (NASDAQ:EYES). The stock is up almost 1,000% since the start of March, and 300% over the past year. What’s the story?Second Sight Medical Products is a US-based company that makes and sells unique implantable visual prosthetics for blind people. The business has been around for a while, having been founded in 1998. From looking at the share price over the past few years, it looked like the best days for EYES shares were in the past. EYES shares traded above $100 a share back in 2015, before trending down over recent years.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…Losses started to stack up at the business. In 2017 the net loss was $28.5m, and in 2018 this rose to $35.1m. The treatment is expensive (revenue per implant is over $100k) and the cost of operations are high. As a result, EYES shares became heavily shorted. This means that investors thought the share price would fall further. They would profit by shorting the shares and buying them back at a lower price.The move higher only really started a few weeks ago, driven by company news and a reduction in short-selling. Firstly, speculation of upcoming FDA approval for the firm’s Argus 2s Retinal Prosthesis System gained interest. This saw EYES shares rallying, causing short-sellers to cut down their positions. By closing out a short position, they have to buy back the stock, which compounds the move higher.At the start of this month, confirmation of the FDA approval came out, seeing the share price explode higher.Do EYES shares have further to run?So will EYES share continue to rise. I think they will. The percentage return looks high, but that’s because it started from a low price to begin with. As of close yesterday, it was trading just below $16. So there’s still plenty of room to go even before it reaches the levels it was traded at back in 2015 (above $100).But I’m not looking at it because of some crazy share price movements. Company fundamentals matter to me.Basic earnings per share are still negative, but becoming less so. Q3 2020 EPS was -$0.07, up from Q2’s -$0.15 and Q1’s -$0.57. If we see this trend get back into positive territory, I think it could attract more longer-term investors. I acknowledge at the moment a lot of buyers are using EYES shares for speculation, but this could change if the fundamentals of the business continue to improve.The risk with EYES shares is the gulf between getting approval for a product and making the product commercially successful. There’s no guarantee that the Argus System will be a huge revenue generator for the company. All things considered, I do think EYES shares have potential but wouldn’t buy right now. I’d wait to see how the business progresses in coming months after the buzz has died down before looking to buy.

Wales v Australia: The Preview

first_imgBy this final game of the Autumn Series, there are eleven Welsh squad members unavailable to the coaches, nine of which are injured. Five of those nine have been felled in the brutal games against Samoa and New Zealand, with Bradley Davies, still out of action after Andrew Hore’s forearm smash last week. The final two, unavailable to Wales are James Hook (Perpignan) and Paul James (Bath) as the game falls outside the international window. Australia are only in slightly better shape, even though they are missing a gamut of stars in James Horwill, Will Genia, James O’Connor, and Quade Cooper for very different reasons. Deans admits it’s been one long season, they’ll be glad to finish.Prediction: I’m going for Wales to sneak it by three points, 20-17. Why? Because Wales have had a pitiful autumn and they’re a better side than results suggest. Australia will want to send Nathan Sharpe off with a win before he takes his place  as one of the greatest locks of his generation, but I think he could be disappointed.Saturday, 1 December, 2:30pm, Millennium Stadium. Live on BBC OneWales: Leigh Halfpenny; Alex Cuthbert, Jonathan Davies, Jamie Roberts, Liam Williams; Rhys Priestland, Mike Phillips; Gethin Jenkins, Matthew Rees, Scott Andrews, Ian Evans, Luke Charteris, Aaron Shingler, Sam Warburton (capt), Toby Faletau.Replacements: Ken Owens, Ryan Bevington, Samson Lee, Ryan Jones, Justin Tipuric, Tavis Knoyle, Dan Biggar, Scott WilliamsAustralia: Berrick Barnes, Nick Cummins, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Ben Tapuai, Drew Mitchell, Kurtley Beale, Nick Phipps, Wycliff Palu, David Pocock, Scott Higginbotham, Nathan Sharpe (captain), Kane Douglas, Ben Alexander, Tatafu Polota Nau, Benn RobinsonReplacements: Stephen Moore, James Slipper, Sekope Kepu, Dave Dennis, Michael Hooper, Brendan McKibbin, Mike Harris, Digby Ioane MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 16: Mike Phillips of Wales passes the ball during the International Test Match between the Australian Wallabies and Wales at Etihad Stadium on June 16, 2012 in Melbourne, Australia. (Photo by Scott Barbour/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Catch me if you can: Berrick Barnes gives Sam Warburton the runaround in the summer Tests, will it happen again?By Owain Jones, Rugby World editorWales v Australia: The previewAUSTRALIA COACH Robbie Deans will be asking for more of the same against a Welsh side they have defeated five times in the last 13 months. However for those thinking it will be a walkover, a note of caution. In those five games, the losing margin was just 20 points, at an average of four points a game. In other words, very fine margins and the Aussies know it.Wales go into the fixture in wretched form, with six losses on the bounce, but Australia have had a topsy-turvy year. One week they are smashed 33-6 by France and the next the defeat England with a spirited 20-14 win at Twickenham. You could argue that Wales have the slightly stronger motivation. They have to avoid the nightmare scenario of dropping down into the third tier of seeds for the Rugby World Cup draw on Monday. Only a month ago, Wales were less than a point from a top four position and talking up the possibility of sneaking into the top tier. For Lions coach Warren Gatland, now back at the helm with Wales, it will be particularly intriguing, as the Lions tour of Australia draws closer.Battle of the opensidesThe openside battle will be box-office, with the Lions tour just six months away. There are four world-class No 7s in the matchday 23. First up on the scorecard will be David Pocock and Sam Warburton who will be going to head to head at the breakdown. Pocock is just back from a knee injury that has kept him out for a few months so you’d expect Warburton to be more battle hardened, on the flipside, many will say Pocock is fresher. The Welsh openside showed last weekend against the All Blacks that he is getting back to his old self, putting in several big hits and crucial turnovers. You’d imagine both coaches would want to give their deputy No 7s a run, so expect Justin Tipuric and Michael Hooperto enter the fray in the second-half. Hooper has showed his massive potential as Pocock’s mini-me during his absence and Tipuric has been pushing Warburton exceptionally hard with his brilliant play in the loose for the Ospreys. Most other international sides will cast envious glances at the embarrassment of riches in both camps.Key man: Pocock is vital to the WallabiesBacks to the wall Wales’ backline have struggled to unpick defences in the Autumn Series with only three tries, one of which came from an interception from Ashley Beck and another from an audacious 13-man line-out in which Scott Williams crashed over against New Zealand. Wales have named six of the backs they fielded during the Grand Slam campaign, with only George North missing and will hope much-missed Jonathan Davies can continue his intelligent running lines to feed the likes of Leigh Halfpenny and rapidly maturing Alex Cuthbert. They will also be hoping for a return to form of Rhys Priestland who has been suffering from a loss of confidence. The Wallabies have lots of new names in their backline and Nick Cummins will surely looking for some another ‘piece of Test meat’ against England one of the autumn’s better performers. How the dual-playmakers Berrick Barnes and Kurtley Beale experiment continues to flourish will also go some way to deciding the fate of this Test.Delivery: Phillips will hope to spark WalesWalking woundedlast_img read more

‘The Sentence’: An intersectional view of mass incarceration

first_imgIn January, HBO purchased the rights to the independent documentary “The Sentence” following its success at the Sundance Film Festival. The documentary debuted on HBO and various streaming services in October.Produced by rookie filmmaker Rudy Valdez, “The Sentence” spans a nine-year period from 2007 until late 2016 as it chronicles the story of Valdez’s sister, Cindy Shank, a Mexican-American woman and Michigan resident. In 2007, Shank was arrested and later convicted for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.From the late 1990s to the early 2000s, Shank lived with her late boyfriend, a drug dealer, until his murder in the early 2000s. Originally taken into custody, charges against her were dropped until the Justice Department decided to reopen her case.As explained in “The Sentence,” a person can be charged with conspiracy solely for being knowledgeable about the commission of a crime without reporting it. Under mandatory federal sentencing guidelines, Shank was then sentenced to 15 years in federal prison. Confused and feeling helpless, Valdez and his extended family were, nevertheless, able to use the power of video to fight against Shank’s unjust incarceration.The reaction to “The Sentence” by popular critics has been overwhelmingly supportive. Yet, while supportive of Shank and the Valdez family, the reviews have also bordered on justifying the incarceration of the multitudes of people imprisoned for drug offenses: primarily people of color.Consider the Washington Post review by Steven Zeitchik. He argues that “‘The Sentence’ puts a tearful human face on prison injustice.” Later he hopes that the documentary does for the movement against mandatory minimums what “An Inconvenient Truth” did for climate change. This liberal strategy of moral persuasion against mass incarceration is not novel. It instead represents the similar strategy taken by Europeans and white U.S. reformers against chattel slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries.The problem is that to suggest there is now a “human face” on mass incarceration seems to underscore that the other faces — including those of many Black men imprisoned on drug charges — are not human. The story of Shank, or even Alice Marie Johnson who was released earlier this year after Kim Kardashian’s appeal to Donald Trump, is presented as an exception to the rule — sympathetic characters who do not deserve to be treated as the others. Therein lies the contradiction in how mainstream journalists have received the film.Importance of intersectional analysisPopular reviews of “The Sentence” stand in stark contrast to the actual piece of radical filmmaking Valdez and Shank presented to the public. “The Sentence” offers an intersectional analysis of mass incarceration. Intersectionality argues for the need to study systems of oppressions as they overlap, not in isolation. The concept was articulated directly by critical race theorist Kimberle Crenshaw in 1989, but described in essence even earlier by anti-racist activists such as Ida B. Wells.As articulated by Crenshaw, intersectional analysis is not an “oppression Olympics” through which we always find the most oppressed. While that is often the case, Shank’s story offers the central use of intersectional analysis as a critical tool in fighting mass incarceration. Intersectionality is meant to identify the oppression that has been overlooked.The discernible variables of oppression analyzed in the “The Sentence” are race, gender, class and another frequently overlooked: childhood. Close attention is paid to the impact of incarceration on Shank’s three daughters, all ages five and younger at the beginning of the film. “The Sentence” reminds viewers that when one person serves time, the entire family serves time as well.Toward the end of the film, Shank’s spouse Adam notes that she cannot get back what she has lost and that pain cannot be reversed. “The damage was done. … The kids felt the impact, I felt the impact, family did, friends, the community. When something like that happens, it doesn’t just affect that person,” states Adam Shank.Far from an exception to the rule, the incarceration of women of color is central to mass incarceration. Since the 1970s, the women’s prison population has increased by more than 900 percent. Women of color have been the most impacted, with the number of Black women inmates rising more than 800 percent, while the number of white women inmates has increased by 200 percent. As with Shank and Alice Marie Johnson, this is the direct result of mandatory drug sentencing and other crimes.In December 2016, Cindy Shank was granted clemency during the final days of Barack Obama’s presidency. Amidst Shank’s joy, she is visibly overtaken with sorrow and guilt when she realizes the odds she overcame and how many eligible inmates remain. In 2016 alone, more than 36,000 people met the guidelines for clemency, yet Shank was one of only 1,600 to be released.Timely storyThe emergence of Shank’s story is timely. The Obama administration and then Attorney General Eric Holder had instructed the Justice Department and federal attorneys to back away from mandatory minimum prosecutions, returning discretion over sentencing to the hands of judges. This is simply accomplished by removing the quantity of drugs from the federal charges levied against a defendant.However, this compassionate measure never rose to the level of legislative reform — and as with all executive orders, they were rescinded upon the change in administration. In May 2017, Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions ordered a return to mandatory minimums by falsely claiming that Obama’s retreat had made the streets unsafer.Independent analysts have connected the reinstatement of mandatory drug sentencing to the increased construction of for-profit federal detention centers. As seen in the case of the Boundary Park Four and More in San Diego, Calif. (tinyurl.com/ww-BP4-SD), activists believe that the government is attempting to fill those beds with people who use drugs and extremely low-level dealers — creating the image of uncontained crisis where there is none.As noted, the story of Cindy Shank demands an intersectional understanding of mass incarceration. Shank’s story is a crucial story to be told, not because it is the most extreme or even the most common. The centrality of Shank’s story to intersectionality is that it is overlooked in the general heteropatriarchal analysis of mass incarceration. Shank’s story reminds us that when a family member serves time, everyone in that family serves time as well.Conversely, just as Shank’s family fought endlessly to raise her story and gain her clemency, it is the collective action by all — across age, race and gender — that is needed to continuously fight for our freedom.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Division Bench comprising of Justices Manoj Misra and Sanjay Kumar Pachori was hearing Siddiqui’s application for quashing of FIR. Though the Court declined this plea “as the allegations would require investigation” however, it directed the UP Police, not to take any coercive action against Siddiqui and his two brothers Fayazuddin and Ayazuddin, and mother Mehrunissa. The relief was not granted in favour of Siddiqui’s third brother, Minajhuddin, as there was a specific allegation against him of molesting a minor child in the family in 2012. The Court said, “Considering that specific allegation of child abuse is against the petitioner no. 1 (Minajhuddin) only and the rest of the petitioners have been implicated by levelling general allegation, we deem it appropriate to dispose off this writ petition by providing that in so far as the petitioner no. 2 (Faiyajuddin Siddiqi); petitioner no. 3 (Ayajuddin Siddiqi); petitioner no. 4 (Smt.
