Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Investing a £100 a month to fund a second income in retirement is a good start. And it’s an even better start if you are young.If you are now, say, 20, you’ll have almost 50 years to accumulate a savings pot before you’re eligible to draw on the State pension – for me, the State Retirement Age is 67, for example, but it has been creeping up.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…Time is the friend of the compounderAnd if you find a way to compound the returns from your money, time can be an asset to you because the biggest absolute returns arrive in the later years of a compounding journey. The other big variable that can make a massive difference to the eventual size of your retirement pot is the annualised rate of return you achieve. Small differences in that can make vast differences to the amount of money you end up with.So it’s important to earn as big an annualised return as you can. Putting the money in a cash savings account with a paltry interest rate of just 1% or 2% will not help you to grow your money into a meaningful sum for retirement. Instead, I’d aim to invest my £100 a month into shares and share-backed investments.I reckon one of the best vehicles for doing that is to use your employer’s workplace pension scheme if there is one. The great thing about those is that your employer will put extra money in for you over and above what you pay in yourself. It’s free money and could really boost your retirement pot. On top of that, contributions from both you and your employer are tax-free, which means the government effectively returns the income tax money and it ends up in your pension fund.Usually, workplace pension schemes invest in managed share funds on your behalf, so your investment will be backed by the shares of many underlying companies. But if you can’t get access to a workplace pension scheme you can contribute to a private pension scheme that will give you all the same tax advantages. Such funds usually operate in a similar manner and invest in managed funds. You won’t get the advantage of extra employer contributions though. However, it’s a good secondary choice, in my opinion.Striking out aloneIf you want to be more independent, you could go for a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) that again gives you tax advantages but you will need to select your own investments. You’ll have to do more ongoing work, but if you are interested in investing it’s a good choice. You can choose between managed funds, passive tracker funds, and individual company shares. However, with a regular investment of £100 a month, I’d be inclined to look at funds rather than individual stocks. You can always add some shares later.

Image source: Getty Images Shares in British fashion retailer Joules Group (LSE: JOUL) fell by as much as 30% on Friday morning (but then recovered to be just over 20% down) after the company warned that profits would be lower than expected this year.According to management, stock availability issues caused retail sales to fall by 4.5% during the seven weeks to 5 January. This compares with growth of 11.7% during the same period last year.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…Joules is not the only retailer to issue a disappointing update this week. However, the company says that its problems were caused by a one-off supply problem with its online sales, not by weaker demand.If demand continues to remain strong, then it’s possible that Joules could be cheap after today’s drop. In this article I’m going to take a closer look at Joules to see whether the stock might be worth buying.I’ll also take a look at high street stalwart Marks and Spencer Group (LSE: MKS), whose share price fell yesterday after a disappointing update.“Demand remains strong”According to CEO Nick Jones, “demand for the Joules brand and its unique products remains strong”. Mr Jones says that website traffic rose by 8% over the festive period and customer numbers rose. The only problem was that supply issues meant the company couldn’t satisfy online demand.The company says these one-off issues have been fixed and that it’s taking steps to beef up its logistics operations here in the UK and in the US — overseas sales now generate about 17% of revenue.A cheap fashion buy?Today’s update warns that profits for the year ending 26 May are now expected to be significantly below expectations. Based on broker forecasts I can see, I estimate that underlying earnings might now drop to around 13p per share, down from 14.1p last year.On this basis, Joules stock now trades on about 13.5 times forecast earnings. If the business can return to growth next year, this could be a bargain. But it’s not without risk — problems like this often mark the start of a period of poor performance. I’d consider taking a small position in Joules, but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.Is there any hope for M&S?Marks and Spencer seems to have been in turnaround mode for as long as I can remember. And it’s usually the same story. Food sales are up, clothing and home sales are down.That’s what happened during the third quarter, which ended on 28 December. Same-store food sales rose by 1.4%, while clothing and home sales fell by 1.7%, on a comparable basis.These numbers didn’t surprise me. But what did shock me a little was that the group’s online sales of clothing and home items only rose by 1.5%.Most big retailers are reporting strong online revenue growth, even as store sales fall. For example, Next reported a 15.3% increase in online sales during the final part of last year.If M&S can’t attract online shoppers, then I think it has a serious problem.I remain bullish about the outlook for the food division’s move online with Ocado. But I’m starting to think the group’s clothing business may be beyond help. Splitting the business in two is starting to look attractive to me, but could be very difficult and expensive.I’ll be staying away from M&S stock until things become clearer.

Archbishop of Canterbury’s new year message

first_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Washington, DC Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Collierville, TN The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Knoxville, TN Submit an Event Listing [Church of England] In his New Year Message, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby reflects on his experiences volunteering as a hospital chaplain at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ hospital during the pandemic, and where he finds hope for the year ahead.The archbishop recorded the message in the chapel at Guys and St. Thomas’ Hospital. It was first broadcast on BBC One and can be viewed here. Read the transcript of the message below.“This chapel is at the heart of Guy’s and St. Thomas’ in central London – one of Britain’s largest and busiest hospitals.Like health workers across the country, the staff here have been on the front line of the coronavirus crisis and have responded with incredible bravery, skill and care.It’s my local hospital, a few minutes’ walk from where I live. During the pandemic, I’ve been volunteering as an assistant chaplain – working for the senior chaplain, the wonderful Rev. Mia Hilborn.We visit COVID wards and other units – spending time with patients, staff and relatives.One evening, I might be with a young child, praying with him and his mother. On another I could be sharing a joke with someone – finding a moment of warmth and connection in a frightening time.Sometimes the most important thing we do is just sit with people, letting them know they are not alone.This year has seen tremendous pain and sadness. Many of us have lost family members or friends, often without being able to say goodbye. For anyone who is on the dark and difficult journey of grief – a path I know myself – I want to assure you that I am praying for you.But it’s at St. Thomas’ that, alongside acknowledging this darkness, I find reasons to be hopeful for the year ahead. Because what I see here teaches me something about human beings – and about God.This crisis has shown us how fragile we are. It has also shown us how to face this fragility. Here at the hospital, hope is there in every hand that’s held, and every comforting word that’s spoken. Up and down the country, it’s there in every phone call. Every food parcel or thoughtful card. Every time we wear our masks.The Bible tells us that God rejoices in these small acts of love – because they reveal who we truly are: human beings made in God’s image, deeply connected to one another.Such gestures speak to me of Jesus – the one who shows us what God’s love looks like. And for this reason, we can have hope for each and every month ahead. May God bless you, and all those you love, in this coming year.

The Chinese foreign ministry announced on 31 May 2005, that the correspondent for the Singapore daily Straits Times had confessed to being a spy in the pay of foreign agencies. The management of the Straits Times said it was shocked by the accusations. His wife, Mary Lau, said that he had fallen into a trap laid by a third party when he tried to obtain recordings of secret interviews with the reformist ex-prime minister Zhao Ziyang.Ching Cheong’s trial is due to open in Beijing in the next few days. He faces the death penalty. Despite the serious espionage charges, your government has not produced any concrete proof against him. The procedure has been marked by numerous irregularities, in violation of the criminal code.Today, journalists will gather in around ten capitals to call for the immediate release of Ching Cheong.

The country does not have any laws to protect animals,” he explained.center_img Linkedin Twitter WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Email Previous articleThe late Florence Lynch is laid to restNext articleLoop Head Lighthouse reopens this weekend Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Facebooklast_img read more
