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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Forget a Cash ISA! Here’s why I’d invest in the FTSE 100 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. In the year to date, the FTSE 100 index has dropped by about 24% due to uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus outbreak. The exact amount of future damage the virus will cause to the global economy is unknown. This has led some potential investors to question whether it is now safe to buy stocks. However, others believe it is now actually a great time to buy shares in quality companies at a discount.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…So, what is the better bet for an investor? A Cash ISA or investing in stocks and shares?Cash ISAAt the start of the coronavirus outbreak, the Bank of England lowered the base rate to 0.1%. This rate is used by high street banks to gauge where to set their interest rates.This was seen as good news for borrowers, with the interest on their loans likely to be cut.The opposite was true for savers. Savings accounts and Cash ISA interest rates were subsequently slashed. This meant that the interest they were earning was substantially less than before.Fellow Fool Roland Head has pointed out that the average Cash ISA — with a typical balance of £5,114 — returns the investor just £12 a year. If I was saving in a Cash ISA, I would be seriously considering alternatives, such as buying FTSE 100 stocks. Are Cash ISAs safe? Although they cannot make a paper loss, like stocks and shares at the moment, I fear that for a long-term investor, the returns of a Cash ISA will not match the rate of inflation. With these returns, your money today will be worth substantially less in a few decades’ time. Long-term investors need to maximise returns, so what is the alternative?Buying FTSE 100 stocksSince its formation in 1984, the FTSE 100 has crashed multiple times. In each instance, the index has regained its losses. Already, there might be signs that the market is recovering. Since March 23, the FTSE 100 is up by roughly 15%, as investors gain confidence that governments around the world are getting a grip on the crisis.Although it is uncertain how the virus will affect businesses in the near future, people currently buying stocks have faith that the economy will eventually recover. This is a trait of many successful investors. Warren Buffett bought his first shares in 1942. He later commented that “World War II didn’t look so good at the time”. He had faith that America would win the war and its economy would prosper.This is a lesson that his mentor Benjamin Graham taught a young Warren Buffett. “To be an investor, you must be a believer in a better tomorrow,” is the thinking.And with the FTSE 100 showing signs of a slight recovery, I think now is the perfect time for long-term investors to buy shares. I have faith in a better tomorrow.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img The Saga (LSE: SAGA) share price has faced significant selling pressure this year. Investors have taken flight following the company’s suspension of its new cruise line in the coronavirus pandemic. The group’s outlook is now far more uncertain than it was at the beginning of the 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…Indeed, Saga entered 2020 on a high. The issues at the group’s insurance business, which management had been working on for more than a year, were finally starting to clear.The company’s new cruise business was also on track to set sail in 2020. This would have provided a new income stream and diversification for the firm. Saga share price setback Unfortunately for owners of Saga shares, the coronavirus pandemic scuppered the company’s aims for 2020. The crisis has pushed back the group’s recovery and forced management to take drastic action. Luckily, customers seem willing to support the business through these tough times. Earlier in the year, management announced that many customers who had booked to travel on the group’s cancelled cruises this year were re-booking for 2021. This seems to suggest that there remains a healthy demand for the organisation’s services. That’s a positive for the Saga share price’s long-term outlook. Still, the company is clearly going to face future uncertainty in the near term. A second coronavirus wave could set back Saga’s recovery plans. A recession may also lead to reduced consumer spending, which would impact growth at all of the business’s divisions. Nevertheless, over the long term, Saga’s brand and devoted customer base may help the group. The fact that cruise customers are willing to re-book for next year suggests that demand remains high.Across the rest of the business, there’s also strong demand for the firm’s specialist insurance and savings products, as well as other travel offerings. Recovery position As such, as long as the company can survive the current crisis, the Saga share price may be able to stage a healthy recovery in the years ahead. It seems as if the business does have the financial flexibility required to weather the storm.Management believes the balance sheet is robust, and the group is trying to offload its luxury travel business to raise extra cash. In the meantime, the firm has cut its dividend and is trying to reduce costs. These efforts should help the enterprise pull through these uncertain times. And if the Saga share price does make a recovery, shareholders could see a substantial return on their investment from current levels. If the stock returns to the level at which it began the year, it could return nearly 250%. This potential suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety.Therefore, it may be worth adding Saga shares to a diversified portfolio of bargain stocks today, before the recovery begins. Doing so could yield high total returns over the long term based on its current valuation.  Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away.

EPA  Continues to Delay on E-15 Ruling

first_img By Gary Truitt – May 31, 2018 SHARE EPA  Continues to Delay on E-15 RulingOn June 1, E-15, a higher blend of ethanol fuel, will no longer be sold in Indiana this summer without last minute EPA action. This is just the latest anti-ethanol move made by the EPA. When EPA administrator Scott Pruitt visited Indiana several months ago, he promised Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb and a gathering of Indiana farm leaders that things would be different at the EPA. Yet, it seems it is the same old policies guiding the agency.Brian JenningsThis week, several ethanol groups and the NCGA took the agency to court accusing them of secretly granting waivers to refiners that allow them to blend less ethanol. Brian Jennings ,with the American Coalition for Ethanol, told HAT that the EPA continues to give the oil industry everything wants, “These waivers have been granted to 30 different refineries.”“EPA is trying to undermine the RFS program under the cover of night,” said Bob Dinneen, CEO and President of RFA. “And there’s a reason it has been done in secret – it’s because EPA is acting in contravention of the statute and its own regulations, methodically destroying the demand for renewable fuels. With the little information we’ve been able to piece together through secondary sources, it’s clear that EPA has been extending these exemptions to refineries that didn’t qualify for them.”“EPA left us with no choice but to challenge their systematic cuts to ethanol blending in the U.S. by distorting the intent of the law to grant secret hardship waivers to refineries which in some cases exceed the definition of ‘small’ and fall short of demonstrating ‘disproportionate economic hardship,’” said Jennings. “We cannot sit by and allow EPA to violate the RFS which requires increasing the use of renewable fuels in the U.S.”In addition to waivers, the agency continues to delay the removal of regulations that prevent the sale of E-15 blended gasoline during summer months. Jennings says what ethanol wants is the ability to see E-15 year round, “We want to see E-15 sold year round to everyone like it should be.” The Trump administration continues to make statements in support of ethanol, but Jennings says that talk is not followed up with action, “We don’t need any more happy talk, we need action.”Indiana Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch says year round sales of E-15 would be good for Indiana farmers, “Having E-15 available all year provides a greater opportunity for Indiana farmers to grow the demand for their corn and grow their income.” It would also be good for Indiana motorists since it would lower the cost of gasoline. Currently, ethanol costs about 70 cents per gallon less than gasoline.
