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. Saving for retirement through a Cash ISA may not be the most effective means of beating the State Pension. Certainly, living within your means and building up a retirement nest egg is a great idea. But accepting the low returns of a Cash ISA while the stock market offers a better chance of long-term capital returns could be an ineffective use of your capital.As such, now may be the right time to switch your focus from a Cash ISA to a Stocks and Shares ISA. Through diversification, you could limit its risks and generate higher returns which reduce your dependency on the State Pension in older age.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…Capital growth potentialA Stocks and Shares ISA offers a greater opportunity to generate capital growth than a Cash ISA. Over the past decade, for example, the FTSE 250 has recorded an annualised growth rate of around 9%. When its dividends are added to that figure, it’s a total return in excess of 12% per year.Over the same time period, a Cash ISA is likely to have posted annual returns that are less than 2%. At present, for example, it’s difficult to obtain a rate of more than 1.25% on a Cash ISA.In terms of planning for retirement, the difference between the returns available from a Stocks and Shares ISA and a Cash ISA could be significant. Over time, the impact of compounding is likely to widen them yet further. For example, over a 10-year time period, a £1,000 investment in the FTSE 250 — which delivers an annual growth rate of 9% — would be worth £2,367. The same investment in a Cash ISA yielding 1.25% would be worth just £1,132.Possible challengesOf course, many savers are dissuaded from opening a Stocks and Shares ISA because of perceived higher costs, complexity and risks. In terms of costs, the rise of online sharedealing means that annual management fees are minimal, while the cost of buying shares can be as low as £1.50 in a regular investment service.Buying shares is riskier than holding cash in terms of there being a potential for losses. But through diversification, you can reduce overall risk. Furthermore, the stock market has always recovered from its downturns to post new record highs. As such, adopting a long-term strategy can lead to high returns – even if there are challenges along the way.Moreover, with a Cash ISA offering such low returns, it may fail to match inflation over the long run. This could reduce your spending power and mean you remain dependent on the State Pension in older age. This could be viewed as a significant risk – especially with the State Pension age set to rise and its payment unlikely to provide financial freedom for most people in older age.As such, now may be the right time to focus your capital on a Stocks and Shares ISA rather than a Cash ISA.

Stock market recovery: I’d invest £500 a month in cheap shares to make a million

Stock market recovery: I’d invest £500 a month in cheap shares to make a million “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Buying cheap shares ahead of a stock market recovery could be a sound means of making a million. A similar strategy has proved successful following previous bear markets. For example, investors who bought a diverse range of undervalued stocks in the aftermath of the global financial crisis are likely to have benefitted from its subsequent rebound.By investing regularly, it’s possible to benefit from any further short-term declines caused by risks such as a weak economic outlook. Doing so could produce a portfolio valued at over a million within an investor’s lifetime.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…Cheap shares could deliver high returns in a stock market recoveryNot all cheap shares are likely to deliver successful turnarounds in the coming years. They may, for example, suffer from outdated business models in an increasingly fast-paced economy. Or, they could have weak financial positions that don’t provide them with the investment required to adapt to changing consumer tastes.However, the prospects for a large number of today’s undervalued shares could be relatively positive. The stock market has a long track record of delivering recoveries after even its very worst declines. For example, in the past 20 years, indexes such as the S&P 500 and FTSE 100 have come back from the dot com bubble and the aforementioned global financial crisis to post high single-digit annual total returns.As such, buying cheap shares and holding them for the long run could be a means of capitalising on market cyclicality. It may lead to higher returns than the market average over the coming years.Regularly investing in bargain stocksOf course, cheap shares could yet experience difficulties in the short run. There may even be a second stock market crash in the coming months. Risks such as political uncertainty in Europe and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic may mean investors adopt an increasingly cautious stance towards equity markets. This may result in lower valuations across many sectors.Therefore, investing regularly in a diverse range of shares could be a shrewd move. Regular investing allows us to potentially capitalise on falling share prices that may offer wide margins of safety. This may also help us to benefit from what could be a volatile period. And that may not be the case with a lump sum investment.Making a millionEven a relatively modest monthly investment in cheap shares could produce a surprisingly large portfolio in a stock market recovery. For example, assuming an 8% annual return that’s in line with the stock market’s past performance, a £500 monthly investment could lead to a portfolio valued in excess of a million within 35 years.As such, while stock prices are low in many cases, now could be an opportunity to start building a portfolio. Certainly as those share prices experience a likely period of growth after the stock market crash. 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.

Howard Lake | 8 October 2008 | News Law 37 were winners of last year’s Let’s Change The Game competition. The competition, run in association with Cancer Research UK, aims to create ways for charities to connect and communicate with potential donors using massively multiplayer online games. www.operationsleepercell.com Law 37 consists of a group of volunteers in the UK and abroad. Operation: Sleeper Cell is the world’s first massively multiplayer online game (MMO) designed to raise money for charity. Created by Law 37, the spy-themed puzzle game involves teams of players from around the world working together to solve ‘puzzle cells’ in a grid. By donating money to the game, they can unlock extra cells for all players, and also advance the story, which takes place over websites, blogs, Twitter and even in real life.Kevin Waudby, Head of Innovation from Cancer Research UK, which will receive all profits of the game, said that the game “creates a cutting edge way of raising money and provides an opportunity to tell people about our work and key health messages”. Players can raise money on their own or in teams, and can also be sponsored by their friends and family. Within the game, thesedonations will be used to unlock new puzzles and story fragments. In addition, sponsors will also be able to buy advertising ‘cells’ on the game’s front page. Operation: Sleeper Cell will run for ten weeks, having started on 23 September, and will end with a live event finale held in London on 29 November. Tagged with: Digital Gaming Law 37 say that although many games have been created to raise awareness for charities, “Operation: Sleeper Cell is the first to incorporate fundraising directly”. They expect several thousand people to play the game.
