Global economic recovery will pick up pace around April 2011, OECD predicts

first_img GROWTH in economies across several continents is set to accelerate, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said yesterday.However, economic growth in Britain is merely showing “signs of stabilisation,” the report said.The OECD’s indicators, measured in November, are designed to anticipate turning points in economic activity six months in advance.“We expect [British] GDP growth to stabilise at 0.3 per cent in the second and third quarters of 2011,” said IHS Global Insight’s Howard Archer, commenting on the latest figures.China, the US, France and Japan showed clear signs of increasingly expanding economies, the OECD revealed.The report’s headline rate for the OECD area increased to 102.8 in November, up from 102.6 in October. All readings over 100 points indicate growing economic activity.Brazil was the only country to record an impending economic contraction, with a score of 98.6.The highest levels were recorded in Germany (104.9) and Russia (105.3).

£2,000 to put to work? How I’d target a 1,000% return investing in shares

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. 4,656.61 Image source: Getty Images When targeting high returns from investing in shares, it’s unnecessary to take crazy risks. It may seem logical to pursue high-risk opportunities to make big percentage gains. But I see another way to achieve a decent outcome without flirting with ultra-speculative stocks.I can harness the power of compounding with a diversified portfolio instead. Compounding smaller percentage gains over time can produce an impressive outcome. And that principle is a cornerstone of my approach to investing.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…Compounding returns from investing in sharesEven this approach isn’t risk-free, of course. All shares carry an element of risk. However, I’m prepared to embrace some risk in pursuit of higher gains. Compared to saving cash, there’s the potential for better returns by investing in shares and share funds.The annualised return of the general stock market is often quoted as a high single-digit percentage. And I like to use 7% as an example. So I could put my £2,000 into tracker funds that aim to mimic the performance of the general market.If I can compound an average of 7% a year with trackers, the outcome would be decent. After 15 years the £2,000 would grow to just over £5,500. The overall return works out at 175%. But that’s short of the bigger outcome I’m looking for.As with all share investments, this isn’t a guaranteed outcome. But it’s surprising how much small improvements in the annualised returns can boost the compounding outcome. I can target higher returns than the general stock market delivers by investing in the shares of carefully chosen individual companies.Targeting higher annualised returnsI’d like to reach a 1,000% overall return, but I know I might not, even if I pick individual companies. So if I can compound an average of 10% a year, that would give me a return of around 350% in 15 years.  And compounding an average of 15% annually would increase my original investment eight-fold. But just say I did even better. The following table sets out what’s possible if I managed to compound an annualised return of 25% each year. Of course, achieving a return on my portfolio as high as that isn’t easy and it isn’t certain. But it’s possible. And aiming for decent compounded returns is probably a better strategy than pitching all my money into a single speculative, ‘crash or glory’ share. This table is also a good illustration of how compounding works. 3,125.00 Annualised Return (£) Total Return (£) Balance (3) 0 – Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. 15 The table shows that after 11 years of compounding annualised returns of 25% I’d end up with a balance just above the 1,000% return I’m looking for. But the remarkable thing about the process is how absolute returns accelerate in size over time.If I keep compounding 25% for a further four years for a total period of 15 years, my balance would grow to almost £57,000. And on an initial investment of £2,000, that’s an overall return of more than 2,700%.OK, I’m not expecting to be that successful all of the time. But I’m trying! When it comes to investing in shares, I think this illustration is a powerful incentive for me to work hard with my investment strategy and share-picking. I also reckon it’s important to keep a close eye on my portfolio and monitor the news flowing from the businesses behind my shares. And if any company starts to underperform my expectations, I should sell up and look for a better investment to replace it. 500.00 Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%.

Daddy Joe lost and she can’t think on her own to get things done. Please enter your comment! Elias, I think the personal attacks against you that I have seen online and read, which I am limited on seeing a lot of the postings, are deplorable, and they should stop, but that is the way political views are, with everyone with different political views. You have a right to express yourself, and vote for whom ever you want to support…. Peace to you too, Elias! God Bless America! Things will settle down sometime, I hope….lol One comment I make to a particular person whom I will not name. Is that the City should be ran by the Council Members. Not the Mayor and his click. The Mayor should vote only if there is a tie. Single Member districts would SERVE all CITIZENS not just the few.

Reply Biggest Roach Man, WL: This was a non-partisan race here in Apopka. Do you NOT GET THAT??? Tired of you Democrat Downers and Liberal references. Do you understand what a non-partisan race even is? This is why I am anti-social. Reply Too bad that Suzanne has quit her campaign and her supporters. She could have had a voice in what she calls “our fight” by bringing hers and her supporters’ ideas and wishes to the City Council had she won, but now as a quitter, she has deserted the opportunity for her and her supporters to have a direct avenue to the City Council. It now appears that her thought process was that she needed Joe to have a chance for approval and now without Joe, her ideas will not hold any weight with the other 4 members of the council. The City of Apopka is very lucky that her decision was made as we can now support a city council member with ideas and decisions with the City of Apopka first in mind!

If you indeed want to move this city forward, you would not care who the leader is. It’s about working together and working through differences. It’s quite clear you do not want to improve the city or you would not have walked away. When things get tough you stick with it and continue your efforts for YOUR citizens. Instead, like many others, you pout and run away. You have no idea how Mayor Elect Nelson will do because you will not give him a chance. My advise, stay out of serving people. It’s clear it’s all about you. God Bless Mayor Elect Nelson, you have the majorities support. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The released statement she gave tried to paint a picture of a candidate who wanted desperately to move Apopka forward and serve the people. But she should have proof-read it before releasing it because it failed miserably from every angle. It is obvious you never planned to fight “for the people” because you gave up before the first fight even started. You let your supporters and the people of Apopka down. I hope you have no further political aspirations in Apopka because you will never have our support now. You have shown your true colors……..

Glad that I said from the very start of your campaign, that I was not going to vote for you, and it is not because I think you are a bad person, or anything like that, but as I stated before, you were hell-bent on raising the property millage rates way way up! You know this is the truth. I also said you were not open-minded, and now after this above statement, people see that, at least people who give people a chance, before they judge someone. Bryan Nelson, has not even took office yet, and you are pre-judging him. So sorry, you feel that way, therefore, I am glad you dropped out of the race! And now you state the fight has just begun? It doesn’t seem like you want Apopka to succeed at all! One of the biggest mistakes Mayor Kilsheimer made was putting you over the Vision Committee, because it went to your head… way too much, over the top! Reply d Too bad your vision is clouded… Bryan Nelson is a great man and lover of Apopka and will move OUR city forward… Too bad you were not strong enough to try to help drive it forward… Only time will tell. My “ thoughts and prayers “ go out to the citizens which just sat back. Although I might disagree much respect to mama Mia nd those which used their given right to vote. But maybe I should sure a cute name since, different thoughts now a days bring attacks on personal character.Peace. Peter Apopka should switch to a weak mayor/strong city manager form of govt. Councils should be policy setting boards that employ a professional city manager to oversee operations. This removes a lot of the politics and reduces double spending on your lead administrators.

Reply Reply March 20, 2018 at 5:42 pm Sue, I can appreciate the effort you have put into Apopka. I thought it to be born of altruism. But, I am both surprised and disappointed with the expression of your decision. It takes courage and dedication to stand up to perceived obstacles and produce greatness. Most of the time we find that things may not be the obstacle we think.Apopka needs positive leadership, no divisiveness or disparaging personal opinions. Let’s give the City an opportunity to succeed for everyone with everyone in mind. I wish you the BEST in your next endeavor Jeff Staples March 20, 2018 at 5:18 pm March 21, 2018 at 4:56 pm Wow, when the going gets tough, the tough drop out. Better to show everyone your willingness (or lack thereof) to do the hard things now, then when you are in office. Someone who only fights for the right thing when it is easy to do so isn’t worth a vote. I applaud your willingness to serve the people of Apopka. However, NO CITY CAN MOVE FORWARD with NO TRUST in the mayor; NO DIVERSITY/INCLUSION of ALL COMMUNITIES and ALL PEOPLE; NO FISCAL INTEGRITY (i.e. city reserves); NO RESPECT for the CITIZENS in the CRA DISTRICT;  the WILLINGNESS to MISLEAD and MISINFORM the public with the FACTS (i.e., WILLIAMS PARK); the WILLIGNESS to GIVE FRIENDS THOUSANDS OF TAX MONEY by staying under the $25,000 THRESHOLD to shun a vote of the CITY COUNCIL and PUBLIC INPUT; and the WILLGNESS to ALLOW ONLY A FRIEND OR TWO SPEAK at BUDGET WORKSHOPS; ON the other hand, we need to be advocates against any “NO or WILLINGNESS” regardless of who is mayor. Concerning VOTING, as a saying goes, ” a person can not make a real difference by being silent on the sidelines and not excersing her or his RIGHT TO VOTE”. BEST WISHES! Reply Mama Mia March 20, 2018 at 10:48 pm March 20, 2018 at 5:49 pm Suzanne,I am so proud of you speaking the truth! It has been an honor to support you. Many of us feel the same sadness that you have expressed. Hold your head high, your a classy Lady. Mama Mia Decision Apopka 2018Suzanne Kidd, a candidate for the Apopka City Commission Seat #1 election, released this statement about withdrawing from the April 10th runoff with Alexander Smith:Suzanne Kidd “First, let me extend a deep thank you to the 2,308 Apopka voters who believed in my vision of a brighter future for Apopka. Had Mayor Kilsheimer won re-election, there is almost no limit to the positive forward strides we as a City were making. But when 80% of Apopka’s Voters chose not to vote, declining to express at the ballot box their hopes for progress, they allowed 4,100 people to change the direction of this City in a way I could not, in good conscience, and in loyalty to my volunteers and supporters, allow myself to agree with or participate in.I decided to run for City Council in order to realize the vision of Apopka’s future and to face head-on the severe financial needs of this City. In my opinion, the new Mayor lacks such a vision, or the openness to explore every revenue-raising opportunity available to the City, and would stand in the way of needed progress. His vision is one of austerity and retrenchment. Because Apopka’s Charter places all the power for setting the City’s agenda in the total control of whomever is Mayor, to continue to run would be to do so while knowing I could not fulfill my campaign promises.I saw this election result as a return to the old ways of doing things, and I refuse to go backwards. Even more, I refuse to abandon the shared vision for progress expressed by the voters who supported me. Instead, my efforts will continue as an advocate for the people of Apopka, and for anyone who wants to see our City move forward.Our fight has just begun.”Suzanne Kidd March 20, 2018 at 7:07 pm Concerned Citizenlast_img read more

Then there would be a reading by a published poet, which would give the opportunity to less experienced poets to meet and chat with more experienced colleagues.Born in Summerhill, Nenagh on January 27, 1934, Barney moved to Limerick six months later with his parents. His first job was selling tickets to build Garryowen Rugby Club’s first stand.He was a traditional craftsman, working with leather since the ’70s in a unique way using heraldic and medieval sculptured leather appliqué, which he invented himself.Barney, was laid to rest in Nenagh, is a brother to the late Betty Clancy, and is deeply regretted by his nephew Jack, niece Mary Mc Namara, brother-in-law John, grandnieces, grandnephews, relatives, neighbours, and his many friends.More local news here.
