Forget a Cash ISA! I’d take Warren Buffett’s advice to make a million instead

first_imgForget a Cash ISA! I’d take Warren Buffett’s advice to make a million instead Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address When I was in my late teens, I opened a Cash ISA. I thought it would be a good way to save and get me on the train towards becoming a millionaire one day. Interest rates were higher back then, but looking back there were so many better ways I could have put my money to work. Legendary investor Warren Buffett bought his first share at a younger age than I opened a Cash ISA, and still lives by the same advice he gives out. Using some of his tips over the years can help all of us become better (and more profitable) investors going forward.TimeframesOne piece of advice from Warren Buffett that has always stuck with me is his comment regarding Berkshire Hathaway (his listed investment firm). He said that “our favourite holding period is forever”. This may sound strange, but Buffett’s advice is basically guiding investors to having a long-term outlook when buying stocks. 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…The reason for this can be seen from my example of a Cash ISA. To keep the maths easy, let’s say you can invest at a rate of 1%. £1,000 turns into £1,010 at the end of the year. Holding this for a long period will build up your pot, but you’re never going to make it to a million! On the other hand, investing these funds into FTSE 100 growth stocks could yield up to 10% profit a year. When you compound this growth rate over a period of a decade or more, it really starts to make a difference. So as an investor wanting to achieve good profits, I think I’m much better off buying good quality stocks over other alternatives.AttitudeBuffett offered further advice when he commented that “an investor should act as though he had a lifetime decision card with just twenty punches on it.” Buffett here was trying to advocate being very selective in our investing approach, as if we could only buy 20 companies in our entire life. If that was the case, we’d be very careful about choosing which stock to buy and hold.Picking the right company and holding it for the long term can yield rich results. For example, take the JD Sports Fashion share price. If I’d invested £1,000 into the stock eight years ago, it would be worth over £20,000. I wrote more about this in a piece you can read here. Warren Buffett’s advice rings true in the case of JD Sports, and it isn’t an isolated example.Learning from Warren Buffett’s adviceThe above examples using £1,000 investments won’t get me to a million any time soon. But it’s just to highlight how sound the advice that Buffett has offered really is. In order to speed up the process to make a million, I just need to increase the amounts invested. Instead of a lump sum of £1,000, it’s much better to try and invest £1,000 every month. The strategy is sound, and if growth stocks do return 10% on average per year, I’d have a pot worth a million after 25 years.

Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Trump is coming to Florida tomorrow to see the damage…….who cares, I don’t. Probably just trying to sell his golf hats anyway…….this whole hurricane thing has been depressing, if you ask me, and we are a lot better off than most here in Florida. The people flooded out, I feel sorry for, that is terrible. No power, no cell phone service, no food, no water, no jobs, their vehicles flooded out and ruined, OMG, South Florida people, and some others, are having it so bad. Extremely depressing, how do they cope? I, for one, get depressed very easily. I watch the teenagers and young kids having fun playing in the flood waters, and laughing, and not a care in the world. I used to be like that myself. I only wish I could be that way now, but I can’t. Just like the lines waiting before the hurricane to get generators, the younger people were hob-nobbing and socializing, and having a blast……not the same for me anymore. I admire that they are positive, and that way, just wish I was like that still, but I am not.

The main sample consisted of data on 8% of all not-for-profits in Ireland. The second was a sample of 26% of all organisations with total incoming resources of over €1 million; and the third was a sample of 27 organisations with a total income exceeding €1 million that responded to an anonymous survey.The report found that the majority of fundraised income is derived from relationships, in particular, regular giving (26%) and direct marketing appeals (21%).The ‘Irish Not-for-Profit Sector: Fundraising Performance Report 2015’ is available from 2into3.center_img Photo: more coins by Vladyslav Starozhylov on Shutterstock.com About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Avoid Late Spring and Early Summer Weed Escapes

first_img SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 10, 2013 SHARE Avoiding weed escapesA wet spring has led to late planting of soybeans for many farmers and they might have to skip their pre-emerge programs once field conditions allow for continuous planting. That will bring a post emerge soybean herbicide program into sharper focus.Brent Neuberger, senior technical service manager at FMC Agricultural Products, says the best timing for that application will largely be dictated by Mother Nature, “but the thing I think is paramount is that we make applications, at least post emerge applications based on weed size. We know from experience that as those weeds get larger they become more difficult so ideally we’d like to target weeds less than four inches tall to get the ideal control that we’re desiring.”Actual weed pressure in Indiana and across the Midwest so far is varied, but FMC says best control will come with multiple modes of action in the post application.“As we look at resistance becoming more of an issue those pre-emerges were a big part of fighting that resistance and different mode of action. Now we’ve got to bring products in with that glyphosate and that’s where Marvel comes in. It’s different modes of action than what glyphosate is so we’re getting multiple modes of action out there so we have a better chance to get the control that grower desires.”Marvel is new in the fields having received final approval earlier this year.As usual to get the best view of what weeds are in your fields, Neuberger says scout.“We need to identify what weeds are out there and what sizes. Obviously a lot of these fields will have history that growers and or retailers should know if it’s been a field where we’ve seen glyphosate resistance. That being the case we’re going to have to make sure we have something in the tank with glyphosate.”Learn more about Marvel, the aggressive tank-mix partner for maximum control of glyphosate-resistant weeds, by visiting the FMC website, www.FMCcrop.com, or by contacting your retailer.Postemergence weed control in soybeans is becoming more of a challenge because of glyphosate resistance. Increasing herbicide diversity, including multiple modes of action, with postemergence herbicide applications will increase weed spectrum and preserve the effectiveness of current herbicide trait technologies. PPO (protoporphyrinogen oxidase) herbicides, such as Marvel, when added with postemergence glyphosate or glufosinate applications, will diversify chemistry in addition to weed spectrum. Foliar coverage is critical for maximizing PPO herbicide effectiveness.Marvel herbicide targets waterhemp, palmer pigweed, lambsquarters and other key weeds with broad-spectrum control.The full HAT interview:Brent Neuberger on Marvel Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Avoid Late Spring and Early Summer Weed Escapes Avoid Late Spring and Early Summer Weed Escapes Previous articleEthanol Group Praises Senate Farm Bill for Blender Pumps and E15Next articleSeed Consultants 6/11/2013 Market Watch with Gary Wilhelmi Andy Eubanklast_img read more
