Responsible investing is becoming more important to today’s share investor.With this in mind here are two green stocks I’d buy now and cling onto for 10 years.Riding the meat-free revolution I recently explained why demand for Beyond Meat’s products is rising as concerns over animal welfare and the broader environment grow.
Penny stocks can generate higher returns than their blue-chip peers because they are often smaller companies.But, unfortunately, they can also lead to bigger losses as there are fewer checks and balances in places at smaller companies than there are at larger firms.As such, buying penny stocks might not be suitable for all investors.
When looking for UK shares to buy, I like to focus on cheap stocks.This is because research shows buying cheap shares can lead to high returns over the long term.However, this isn’t always guaranteed.As such, the strategy might not be suitable for all investors.
Penny stocks might not be suitable for all investors because they tend to be smaller businesses.However, there’s no set definition of a penny stock.So, companies with market capitalisations of several hundred million pounds or even billions of pounds can qualify.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... As such, when buying penny shares for my portfolio, I tend to concentrate on larger businesses.
Considering the current interest rate environment, I’ve recently been looking for UK dividend stocks to add to my portfolio.I believe this is one strategy I can use to increase my income when interest rates are at record low levels.I’m aware that dividend income is never guaranteed.
I like the idea of generating passive income from investing in shares that can pay a sustainable dividend yield.Companies with strong business models and a history of returning money to shareholders fit the bill.Sustainable passive income Aviva (LSE: AV) has been guilty of cutting its dividend.
Over the past few months, I’ve written several articles explaining why I believe the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price is cheap.My analysis of the company is based on its own projections.Management believes the enterprise will become cash-flow-positive in the second half of this year.
I think some of the best shares to buy now are located in the tech sector.With that in mind, here are five related stocks I’d buy for my portfolio right now.Best shares to buy now The first two stocks I’d buy are not the sort of businesses most people imagine when they think of tech companies.
It has been a good start to the stock markets today.The FTSE 100 index is once again above the 7,000 level in lunchtime trading.But it is a particularly good day for one FTSE 100 stock.Accounting software provider Sage Group (LSE: SGE) is the biggest index gainer so far, with a 3% increase in share price.
Shares in construction firm Kier Group (LSE: KIE) have risen by 150% since ‘vaccine day’ at the start of November.But the Kier share price gained new momentum this week, climbing nearly 30% after the company announced a £241m fundraising plan.
I think that a lot of investors are wondering whether the dip in markets this week will lead to a full stock market crash.It’s too early to say for certain, but the stabilisation seen as we close the week gives me confidence.I think that the reasons in favor of buying the dip carry more weight than the concerns about a larger crash.
Watching a car made by Aston Martin Lagonda (LSE: AML) tear around hairpin bends on a race track can be exciting — but sometimes alarming.That matches the experience of some shareholders of the firm.The Aston Martin share price has had its share of crashes and acceleration in recent years.
I’m delighted to see the Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) share price stage such a strong recovery.I’ve previously hailed the FTSE 100 stock a bargain, but it’s also made me nervous and some days I wouldn’t have touched it at all.
There are many ways of looking at dividend stability, but I think two criteria are most important.Firstly, I believe the products and services provided by income stocks should be in demand, even in recessions.One example is groceries and healthcare-related demand.Another is utilities like electricity, gas and water supply.
Whitbread (LSE:WTB) might seem like the perfect FTSE 100 stock for me to pick up as the UK’s economy continues to reopen.The company owns Premier Inn and a range of branded restaurants and bars.This should allow Whitbread to benefit from people taking UK holidays and going out to eat and drink.
FTSE 100 shares continue to struggle for grip (broadly speaking) in Thursday business.Concerns over soaring inflation — and consequently what measures central banks might take to curb price rises — has spooked investors of late.But the Hargreaves Lansdown (LSE: HL) share price has really taken a pasting.
Markets have been frenetic this week.Many investors feel increasingly jittery about share price movements.Nobody knows how the stock market will perform in future.But I do have a plan for how to react to a stock market crash, whenever it might happen.Here are the key elements of my crash plan.
After a turbulent few months, the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price is back to where it started 2021.Over the past 12 months, the Rolls-Royce share price has increased 17%.But recently momentum has stalled.Could that make now the time to act on the share price?
Investor confidence continues to come unstuck on Thursday as concerns over runaway inflation rise.The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are both heavily in the red as market makers contemplate fresh interest rate hikes.However, the Kier Group (LSE: KIE) share price has had no problem gaining traction after launching a fresh share placing.
