2 UK shares to buy now

first_img Enter Your Email Address 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. 2 UK shares to buy now “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I believe some of the best UK shares to buy now are recovery plays. These businesses could benefit as the UK economy opens up over the next few months and recovers to pre-pandemic levels over the next few years.With that in mind, here are two companies I’ve recently been reviewing with the view of adding them to my 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…UK sharesThe first stock on my list is the public transport company FirstGroup (LSE: FGP). This organisation has suffered from the pandemic more than most. As travellers have been advised to avoid public transport and avoid going to work, revenues across the business have plunged.As a result, like many other UK shares, the firm reported a substantial loss of £327m in 2020. Further losses are expected in 2021. However, by 2022, the company and City analysts expect the group to return to profit. These are just forecasts at this stage and there’s no guarantee the corporation will hit these projections. It could earn significantly more or less than the £81m net profit analysts have pencilled in for 2022. Still, I think these projections show the company’s potential. The main challenges the group faces going forward are related to the pandemic. If restrictions continue for longer than expected, FirstGroup’s revenues will remain under pressure. There’s also no telling how quickly travellers will return to public transport. I think these are short-term headwinds. Over the long run, the government wants to encourage more consumers to use public transport and reduce reliance on individual vehicles. Public transport operators like FirstGroup will be a vital pillar of this strategy.That’s the main reason I’m willing to look past the company’s short-term headwinds and buy this stock for my portfolio of UK shares.Shares to buy nowThe second business on my list of the best UK shares to buy right now is another recovery play, N Brown (LSE: BWNG).Shares in this fashion retailer are dealing around 50% below their pre-pandemic high. While the business has faced challenges over the past 12 months, I think this ignores its long-term potential. Indeed, the now-digitally-focused retailer could turn a net profit of as much as £37m in 2022, according to current projections. That’s a big turnaround from the loss of £58m reported for 2019. Nevertheless, these are just projections at this stage, and there’s no guarantee the firm will hit this target. Clothing retail is an incredibly competitive industry, and a company’s fortunes can change almost overnight. Just because N Brown appears to be successful today doesn’t mean consumers will stick with the business for the next two years. This is the biggest challenge the group faces right now.By focusing on its core plus-size market, I think the company has an advantage over its competitors. That’s why I’m willing to look past the risks the business faces and buy the stock for my portfolio for the long term.Put simply, as a cheap way to play the UK’s economic recovery, this could be one of the best UK shares to buy now.

However, it is important to note that due to the smaller size of this expanding market segment, the quarter-to-quarter movements are not typically statistically significant, according to the NAHB.The report notes that older homes are more likely to be rented, making the primary source of SFR homes not in construction, but existing housing—reporting from 2005 to 2015, 56 percent of the gains in the rental housing was due to SFR homes.While the single-family rental market continues to redefine its borders, the investment landscape offers an opportunity for many in a marketplace that have often been misunderstood. Navigating this dynamic terrain takes careful planning and strategic partnerships.The 2018 Five Star Single-Family Rental Summit provides an important conduit for SFR leaders to have the important conversations that will push this industry forward.The 2018 Five Star Single-Family Rental Summit begins March 19th and continues through March 21st at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee to discuss the investment opportunities abound in this expanding market.To register, click here.

Getting over the fear of spending down in retirement

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Today more people are living longer – and the likelihood of living even longer increases for those who make it to retirement age.Here’s a look at how longevity plays a factor in retirement spending. So, when your golden years arrive, you can be prepared to confidently move forward with your life.For example, a 65-year-old man has a 50 percent chance of living to age 89 and a 25 percent chance of living to age 94. Women, on average, are outliving men: A 65-year-old woman has a 50 percent chance of living to age 91 and a 25 percent chance of living to age 96. For those who are part of a couple and reach the age of 65, at least one is likely to live to the ripe old age of 94 (50 percent) or 98 (25 percent).1With the possibility of living for 30 years (or longer) after you retire, there’s a lot to consider. continue reading »last_img read more
