UK industrial growth set to thrive in 2011

first_imgThursday 10 March 2011 7:13 pm KCS-content BRITISH manufacturing started 2011 with a bang, growing at its fastest annualised rate for over 16 years, official data showed yesterday.The UK’s booming sector has now expanded for 12 months in a row, up 6.8 per cent in January, compared to the same time last year, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).Factory growth surpassed the expectations of economists, rising by one per cent month-on-month as firms recovered from the weather-reated 0.1 per cent drop in December.“This outstanding set of figures points to a manufacturing recovery that is both strong and sustainable,” said Graeme Allinson of Barclays Corporate. “The manufacturing companies we bank continue to outperform businesses generally, with little need for restructuring and very few insolvencies,” Allinson added.Monthly data can be misleadingly volatile, the ONS warned yesterday, yet a comparison of the last three months reveals annual growth of 5.5 per cent, and continuous growth for 15 months in a row.The total index of production, which also includes mining and energy provision, rose by a slower monthly rate of 0.5 per cent in January.“Utilities output fell 6.2 per cent due to warmer weather resulting in less gas and electricity demand,” explained ING’s James Knightley. “While they are good numbers, remember that industrial activity accounts for less than 15 per cent of the UK economy,” Knightley said.

The 2 defensive FTSE 100 shares I’m buying to protect my ISA wealth

first_img Tom Rodgers | Monday, 20th April, 2020 | More on: NG ULVR Image source: Getty Images I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The coronavirus market crash has thrown up a unique opportunity. Quality defensive FTSE 100 shares are trading at much more affordable prices. So I’m saving cash I don’t need for my everyday bills and piling it into my Stocks and Shares ISA.The smart money also knows a UK recession is coming. And defensive sectors like utilities and consumer staples are the best store of value in troubled times.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…Take noteOne caveat I will say before I start. This pair may not rise as fast as a rapidly appreciating market when the pandemic crisis is over.But anyone gambling on risky stocks will have seen eye-watering 20% to 30% falls in their portfolio value since March. And the rally back to previous highs could be two years away from here.So what these stocks will do is to protect your ISA wealth in the choppy, likely recessionary, environment ahead.I think both should be part of a well-diversified portfolio packed with both high-earning growth stocks and stable, high-yield FTSE 100 dividend-payers.Think nationalAs a defensive FTSE 100 utilities pick, there are few better options than this infrastructure operator.No one can touch the 5.2% yield of National Grid (LSE:NG) in the UK because of its impenetrable economic moat, or competitive advantage.Instead of digging for oil or natural gas, it owns the pipes and power lines that transmit gas and electricity into people’s homes. As such, its revenues are less affected by the collapsing price of oil, which has already badly hurt FTSE 100 energy giants like Royal Dutch Shell, BP and scores of smaller mining and minerals companies.Investors burned by tanking share prices have already taken notice of National Grid’s defensive qualities. While many shares have plunged 30% or more since the start of 2020, NG shares are down by only single percentage points.It has left open the decision of whether to pay its final dividend, but I’m not too concerned. National Grid has positives in spades, with a strong balance sheet and £5.5bn of undrawn bank facilities providing plenty of downturn cover.Stay home, keep cleanIn the consumer staples sector, Reckitt Benkiser, which sells household cleaning and hygiene products, seems an obvious choice. Especially in an era of hand-sanitiser price gouging and baby-wipe shortages. But it was unprofitable last year.Instead, I’m choosing Unilever (LSE:ULVR). It’s the favourite FTSE 100 dividend share of Evenlode Investment Management, for one. That is about the most boring (in a good way) active stock picking fund you will ever find. It focuses on big, stable companies most likely to slowly improve dividends per share over many years.With brands under its wing, such as Dove soap, Domestos bleach, Marmite spread and Magnum ice creams, you’ll find Unilever products on every supermarket and corner store shelf in Britain.Like National Grid, the shares have lost less than 5% of their value since January 2020. As of mid-April you can pick up the shares on 18 times earnings for a 3.4% dividend yield. This is one to tuck away in your ISA and forget about. If you can hold for a few years, I have no doubt it will compound nicely and pay you back handsomely for your faith. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. It’s always hard to invest when there’s uncertainty, particularly after a stock market crash. Right now, nobody knows what’s going to happen to the economy, to business sectors, or to specific businesses. Above all, nobody knows what’s going to happen to the stock market in the short term. Even in the best of times, predicting the short-term movement of the stock market is a fool’s game.Bearing this in mind, we need to think how we can adapt our investment strategy to take account of share price volatility and variance in potential outcomes. While we don’t know which way share prices are going to move in the short term, we do know that in the long term, they invariably track upwards as economies and businesses grow.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…Reducing investment riskAdditionally, we can see that following the stock market crash, share prices are currently low by historical standards. That is certainly the case here in the UK. Therefore, as long as we have long holding periods, it’s likely that our investments will gain in value. In fact, along with diversification, extending investment holding periods is the best way to reduce investment risk. This holds true even in the most uncertain of times.With share prices at such low levels, it also follows – somewhat counterintuitively – that now is a better time to invest for the long term, than any other point when share prices were higher. Those who invested a few years (or months) ago are likely sitting on losses. Whereas those entering the market now, after the stock market crash, are more likely to come away with inflated returns. Investors are rewarded for taking on the perceived risk of investing during periods of uncertainty.Investing after a stock market crashI’ve written before about how regular investing in the stock market can help to smooth out the average price that we pay for our shares. By investing the same amount every month, we eliminate the risk of buying all our shares at market tops. Instead, if done over a period of years, we will likely buy shares at all stages of the stock market cycle. This means we don’t need to worry about market timing, and we can focus instead on buying the shares that we like.One slight variation to this strategy is to vary the amounts we invest every month, in accordance with stock market valuations. This would result in us investing greater amounts when shares look cheap, and less when they look expensive. For instance, we could say that when the average price-to-earnings ratio of the FTSE 100 is below 15, we would invest more than when it was above 15. Under this strategy, we would have been investing more after the stock market crash, taking advantage of the lower prices.Of course, one big problem with this approach is that in a rising market, we may end up investing less than we should do. For best results, we would need to regularly review the valuation level that dictates whether we buy more or less. Also, depending on the route we use to buy our stocks, it could be that investing this regularly incurs higher transaction costs. To mitigate this, instead of investing once a month, we could invest larger amounts every three months. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images.

No savings at 40? Here’s how I’d invest £1k a month in UK shares to retire with a million

first_img Enter Your Email Address No savings at 40? Here’s how I’d invest £1k a month in UK shares to retire with a million Investing £1k a month in UK shares could be a means of retiring with a million. After all, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have recorded annualised total returns of around 8% in recent decades, and could do likewise in the coming years.A £1k monthly investment, therefore, would produce a £1m portfolio within 28 years at that rate of return. That would be sufficient for a 40-year-old to retire at 68 with a seven-figure portfolio.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…Of course, the 2020 stock market crash has left many shares trading at low prices. Therefore, it may be possible to outperform the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 to obtain a surprisingly large retirement portfolio in a shorter space of time.Buying cheap UK shares todayBuying cheap UK shares such as Shell and GSK could lead to relatively high returns on a £1k monthly investment over the long run. Their share prices continue to trade lower year-to-date, which could mean they offer capital growth potential over the coming years.The GSK plans to split into two businesses may improve its efficiency. Its pipeline also suggests that it has the potential to deliver improving profitability after a mixed period in 2020 that has included disruption caused by coronavirus. Its 5.7% dividend yield suggests that it offers good value for money.Similarly, I think Shell could offer good value for money compared to other UK shares. Its 4% dividend yield could realistically grow at a brisk pace over the long run, as the company shifts its strategy towards a low-carbon future. Its recent updates have suggested that the company is in a financially sound position relative to its sector peers. This may allow it to capitalise on a likely global economic recovery.Improving operating conditions for a £1k monthly investmentInvesting £1k a month in UK shares such as Tesco and Barratt Developments could also be a sound long-term move. They appear to have the potential to outperform the FTSE 100 as a result of a likely improvement in their operating environments. For example, Barratt could benefit from a period of low interest rates that makes housing more affordable across the UK. Furthermore, its solid financial position and large land bank mean that it may have a competitive advantage over its peers.Meanwhile, Tesco’s investment in online capacity could pay off in the coming years. It now has a leading position in the online grocery sector that could allow it to produce higher profit growth than sector peers in an era when digital consumption is likely to grow. With a 4% dividend yield forecast for next year, it also appears to offer good value for money and income investing potential at a time when demand for passive income shares could increase. This may help to lift its share price over the long run. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Friday, 11th December, 2020 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!
