Forget the State Pension. I’d pocket 4%+ from FTSE 100 dividend stocks in 2020

Forget the State Pension. I’d pocket 4%+ from FTSE 100 dividend stocks in 2020 With the State Pension amounting to just £8,767 per annum, the vast majority of retirees will require a second income in older age. As such, it could be worth buying a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares to generate capital growth and income over the long run.At the present time, the index offers a relatively attractive dividend yield of 4.3%. This suggests that it has a wide margin of safety, while its international exposure may produce improving growth opportunities in the coming years.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…Income opportunityFor those individuals who require an income from their capital to supplement what is a relatively disappointing State Pension, the FTSE 100 could be highly attractive. Its dividend yield is significantly higher than the interest income that can be generated on cash savings or bonds.In many cases, Cash ISAs and savings accounts offer returns that are below inflation, while it is a similar situation for many investment-grade bonds. Since interest rates are expected to stay at a low level over the medium term, this situation may not improve and even large sums of capital may fail to offer a worthwhile income return compared to investments in the FTSE 100.Additionally, FTSE 100 shares offer dividend growth potential in many cases. Since the index is made up of mature businesses, they have solid track records of paying rising dividends. In fact, it is likely that the dividend growth opportunities within the FTSE 100 will beat inflation over the long term – especially among those businesses that have dividends that are modest when compared to their net profits.Growth prospectsThe FTSE 100 can also help individuals to build a retirement nest egg for the future. Its dividend yield suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety, while many of its members trade on low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios. This may be due to the risks faced by the world economy, with investors demanding lower prices to account for the apparent uncertain operating environment for many businesses. This could present a buying opportunity for investors who can overcome short-term volatility to make long-term gains.The index’s capital growth potential looks set to be boosted by its exposure to fast-growing economies. With its constituents generating the majority of their sales and profit in non-UK markets, the FTSE 100 may be able to offer stronger growth prospects than the wider UK economy. This could make it an even more appealing investment at a time when the UK’s political and economic future is relatively unclear.State Pension challengesAlthough the State Pension is likely to rise at a brisk pace in the coming years, it may be insufficient to provide most retirees with financial freedom. The FTSE 100’s modest valuation, growth potential and income prospects could make it a relatively sound place to invest for a wide range of individuals who are seeking to maximise their income in older age.

Stop saving and start investing! I’d ditch a Cash ISA and buy FTSE 100 shares in 2020

Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Saturday, 18th January, 2020 | More on: ^FTSE Investing in FTSE 100 shares could prove to be a better idea than having a Cash ISA in 2020. Interest rates are currently close to historic lows, while the pace at which they are likely to rise in the coming years could prove to be relatively slow.By contrast, the FTSE 100 could deliver high returns. Many of its members trade on low valuations and offer high dividend yields. This could lead to improving total returns that boost your long-term financial prospects. As such, focusing your capital on large-cap shares, rather than cash savings, could be a good idea.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…Low cash returnsCash ISAs have proved to be a simple and effective means of building a cash balance in previous years. However, a low interest rate that is unlikely to move significantly higher due to a modest rate of inflation and economic uncertainty in the UK may mean that Cash ISA returns are low.Furthermore, the tax advantages of a Cash ISA are highly limited at the present time. Assuming an interest rate of 1.5% on the capital held in a Cash ISA would mean that you would require a balance of over £67,000 to obtain tax benefits versus a bog-standard savings account. This is because the first £1,000 in interest received from savings accounts each year is not subject to tax for basic rate taxpayers.Therefore, rather than using up your annual ISA allowance of £20,000 on a Cash ISA, it may be a better idea to invest instead in FTSE 100 shares through a Stocks and Shares ISA.Improving FTSE 100 potentialThe FTSE 100 may have experienced a decade-long bull market, but the index still seems to offer good value for money. Sectors such as banking, retail, financial services, industrials and healthcare offer low valuations and improving growth prospects, with a number of their members seeming to have a potent mix of rising dividends and wide margins of safety.Furthermore, with the index being focused on international markets, it offers geographic diversity that helps to reduce risk. This also provides investors with access to the high growth potential of emerging economies, which could offer improving financial rewards in the coming years.Through diversifying across a range of FTSE 100 shares, it may be possible to reduce your risk of loss. Diversifying reduces company-specific risk. It means one company’s weak financial performance would affect your portfolio to a lesser degree when there are a number of other stocks held alongside it. As such, with the cost of buying and selling shares being cheap, it makes sense to own a range of companies that operate in a variety of different sectors.Emergency cashOf course, holding some cash in case of emergency is always a good idea. However, focusing the majority of your capital on a Cash ISA, rather than buying FTSE 100 shares, may not be a rewarding experience – especially with large-cap stocks appearing to offer favourable risk/reward ratios.

Could I retire early with a FTSE 100 portfolio led by female CEOs?

Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 24th March, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Did you know only five companies in the FTSE 100 are headed by female CEOs? According to data from IG.com, the current growth rate suggests it’s going to take until the year 2101 to achieve a 50/50 balance. And there’s a big pay gap too. The top-paid male boss is Ocado‘s Tim Steiner. He’s on a total package worth around 10 times that of the top female CEO, Emma Walmsley of GlaxoSmithKline.Source: IG.comGender stereotypes?Is it down to gender stereotypes? Which image of a boss do you think works best for, say, a top bank? The aggressive gung-ho Fred ‘The Shred’ Goodwin, whose leadership brought Royal Bank of Scotland to its knees? Or Alison Rose, currently guiding that same bank’s successful recovery (albeit with a coronavirus-led share price hit at the moment)?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…During the banking crisis, the cartoons I saw depicted fat cat bankers, invariably as men in braces, with fat cigars and wads of cash. Was that unfair? If you want an insight into the macho male image of finance and investment, I recommend a read of Liar’s Poker by Michael Lewis.Stereotypes are generally unfair. Obviously we want our top companies to be run by the very best people, regardless of gender. For example, I rate Glaxo’s Emma Walmsley and AstraZeneca‘s Pascal Soriot as two of our top CEOs, both running excellent companies with long-term focus.How would a small portfolio of only those five companies run by female bosses look? GlaxoSmithKline, yes. I’m a long-term bull when it comes to the UK’s top pharmaceuticals firms. And my admiration for the progress made at RBS has led me to rate the bank as a buy for some time. RBS is riskier now. But the shares are cheaper than they’ve been for a long time. And I’m upbeat about the long-term potential.Female CEOsCarolyn McCall’s ITV is next. I’ve not been a great fan of the company. But my negativity has been largely tied to its dividend, which I’ve seen as excessive amid a time of earnings pressure. It’s now suspended the 2019 final dividend, and has withdrawn 2020 dividend plans. In the light of that, and the virus crash, I think the shares look oversold.Whitbread, headed by Alison Brittain, is another whose share price has nosedived during the health crisis. We’re looking at a fall of a shade under 50%. I think Whitbread has a strong enough balance sheet to survive the crisis. But I can’t help thinking the dividend should be withdrawn in the short term.Finally, one of my favourite cash cows is Severn Trent. Headed by Liv Garfield, Severn Trent has the disadvantage of operating in a regulated business. But against that, it has a very clear view of its long-term income and pays one of the most reliable dividends on the market. Its shares are down 24%, and I think that’s unfair for such a defensive stock.I rate these companies as well above the median in terms of quality of management. And if you buy all five and hold them for the long term (by which I mean at least five years, preferably 10, or more), I reckon you’d be looking at a well-diversified start to a FTSE 100 retirement portfolio.
