Stock market crash: 3 of the best cheap UK shares I’d buy in an ISA in November to make a million

Stock market crash: 3 of the best cheap UK shares I’d buy in an ISA in November to make a million Has there been a better time for UK share investors to try and make a million, or more? Despite the uncertain outlook for the global economy I think today’s a great time to go shopping for British stocks.The FTSE 100’s drop to seven-month lows, and similar slumps across other major share indices, provides another great dip-buying opportunity, in my opinion.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…History shows us that long-term investors tend to make an average yearly return of somewhere between 8% and 10%. But those who invest following stock market weakness can supercharge their returns beyond even these impressive levels.This strategy helped hundreds — some say thousands — of Stocks and Shares ISA investors become millionaires in the years following the 2008/2009 stock market crash.Investors clearly need to be careful before splashing out on UK shares. A long economic downturn will play havoc with many companies’ profits performances and dividend policies. A great many stocks might not even survive beyond the short-to-medium term.However, for those that do plenty of research, there’s a wealth of opportunity to get mega-rich over the coming decade.3 brilliant UK shares that could rocketLet me talk you through three top UK shares I’m thinking of adding to my own Stocks and Shares ISA. I think their share prices may even rocket again in the days and weeks ahead:There are a number of reasons why gold prices could zoom to fresh record highs again. Worsening news surrounding Covid-19 is the most obvious possible driver. But pontentially botched Brexit negotiations, an inconclusive US presidential election result, and a recent uptick in terrorist activity are all reasons why demand for the safe-haven asset could pick up. This means bullion producers, like Serabi Gold, could rise again before long. A low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 6 times in this case certainly leaves plenty of scope for fresh price gains.I’m tipping B&M European Value Retail stock to gain value this month too. This UK share is slated to release half-year financials on Thursday, 12 November. And I’m expecting the value retailer to announce trading has remained strong as deteriorating consumer confidence boosts demand for low-cost foods and household products. B&M’s most recent update showed group revenues rose by more than a quarter year-on-year between April and September. Despite heady share price gains in 2020, the retail giant trades on a forward P/E multiple of 14 times. This makes it a steal, in my book.I reckon the Codemasters Group share price could also rise when its half-time numbers are unpackaged on Monday, 23 November. 2020 has proved to be a blockbuster year for home entertainment stocks like these, due to Covid-19 lockdowns. Codemasters saw revenues more than double during the six months to September. And I’m expecting trading to have remained strong since then, thanks to a slew of new title releases. This UK share also looks quite cheap as it trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. And this makes it a top buy for November.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Not all shares provide income. Of those that do, some are unstable. Their dividends move around or are sometimes cancelled. That is one reason I am attracted to UK shares I think will keep growing their dividend payouts. There’s nothing certain in investing, but an expectation of a growing income from a share can make it more attractive to me.Here are two blue-chip UK shares I’d pick now for a growing income.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…A clear dividend policyInsurers make a living from being very precise about calculations and probabilities. So it may come as no surprise that Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) has set out its dividend plans for the coming years.The well-known insurance brand owner has said that it will hold its dividend flat for a year, then plans to increase it annually by a low- to mid-single digit percentage. That might not sound like a lot, but I find it attractive for a number of reasons.First, the company already has an attractive yield. These UK shares yield over 6%, which I think is highly agreeable for a well-known large company like this. Secondly, the increase is realistic. Instead of overpromising and then having to slash payouts down the line, I think a modest forecast increase based on expected business results is prudent. The power of compounding means that even with a modest increase, returns should improve over time.Insurers and fund managers do make dividend cuts – rival Aviva made one last year, for example. The pausing of dividend increases for a year is already a sign to be alert to the dividend’s sensitivity to economic conditions. But with a 6% yield and expected dividend growth ahead, I would be happy to hold Legal & General in my portfolio.I hope to clean up with these UK sharesLike Legal & General, another company whose UK shares have increased dividends in the past few years is Unilever (LSE: ULVR).The consumer goods giant pays out quarterly. Last year it raised dividends by about 3.6%. Dividends are covered by earnings and the pandemic has boosted demand for brands such as Domestos, so I expect the dividend to stay covered. With its history of raising dividends, I expect the payout to keep on growing. However, that depends on the direction the business takes.Lately, some analysts seem to have been underwhelmed by Unilever’s growth rate. The shares have fallen and the company is now valued at less than the offer from Warren Buffett that it previously rebuffed.That might bode poorly for the dividend, but I am optimistic as its brand portfolio gives it pricing power. The share price fall also means the yield has risen. Currently Unilever yields 3.9%. For a blue-chip global consumer goods company, I find that attractive and have recently taken action and bought some Unilever shares.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 2 blue-chip UK shares I’d pick now for a growing income christopherruane owns shares of Unilever.

Injury leads to FREAKISH new skill that is sure to make you laugh

first_imgWednesday Jan 29, 2020 Injury leads to FREAKISH new skill that is sure to make you laugh A young player from Medway RFC suffered a bit of a freak injury this past weekend, causing a stir on social media after a video of him drinking from his water bottle went viral. ADVERTISEMENTSean Marriot experienced a unique side effect to a facial injury that he sustained in the final ten minutes of their match against Tonbridge Juddians 2nd XV.A teammate and friend told us that despite the gash to his chin, Sean carried on playing, making a try-saving tackle and then getting yellow carded by the referee for being offside.On the sidelines, before being treated, he discovered a new party trick, as he sipped from a bottle, squirting the liquid out of the clearly substantial wound.The went fairly viral this week, racking up over 300k views already.We’re told that Sean was then glued together, given some steri-strips to put on it and he’s ready to play again on Saturday. And probably thanks in part to his try-saving intervention, the match ended 20-20.ADVERTISEMENTHero.

The Magdalena Building is located in the Colonia del Valle, Mexico City. Its urbanization occurred at the beginning of the twentieth century. The colony had a slow development until 1920, when the Avenida de los Insurgentes was enlarged and paved, and huge houses were built along it. By the 1960s, the area was already completely urbanized, where mansions inhabited by Spaniards who migrated to Mexico predominated. Save this picture!Cortesía de HERNANDEZDELAGARZASave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de HERNANDEZDELAGARZAOver time and due to the increase in the value of the properties, Colonia del Valle is in a process of reconversion of land use. Therefore, many houses have been replaced by residential buildings. In this particular case, there were two houses that were demolished and subsequently the land was merged to achieve a 485m2 plot.Save this picture!Cortesía de HERNANDEZDELAGARZADue to these changes, both in the use of the land and in the arrival of new generations, the ten-apartment building has different typologies which are not only differentiated in their architectural program but also in the formal result that is expressed in the concrete volume, organized with axes that start in the parking lot. This creates a grid that expresses very clearly both the construction system, based on stiff walls and concrete slabs, and their own use which consists of two simple apartments on the ground floor, five duplex apartments with double height terraces in the intermediate levels and three penthouses on the last level with private roof garden.Save this picture!Cortesía de HERNANDEZDELAGARZASave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de HERNANDEZDELAGARZAThe facades of the building respond to both the context and its orientation within a plot with three facades. The north facade has small openings that allow ventilation, and avoid the views towards the narrowest street.Save this picture!Cortesía de HERNANDEZDELAGARZAThe south and east facades are open, not only because they capture the greatest amount of natural light in the interior of the apartments, but also because they have views of the avenues’ trees.

An adventurous spirit

first_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories Published 11:00 pm Friday, September 21, 2012 When Ruth Overstreet isn’t traveling the world, she’s content at the home she built herself in Spring Hill. Overstreet spends her “at home” time in her backyard, caning and growing pears, persimmons and muscadines.Unless you know where Ruth Overstreet’s house is and are looking for it, you’ll miss it.She won’t say so, but she might have planned it that way.Overstreet grew up on a farm in rural Nebraska so she’s accustomed to the quiet life. Some might think her a hermit or a recluse, but there’s nothing further from the truth. Book Nook to reopen An adventurous spirit You Might Like Hobby horses Walter stands by part of her extensive collection of horses.

She watched the hummingbirds flitter back and forth to the feeder.“There’s quite a few of them,” she said. “I can’t tell how many because they don’t all come at once. They’ll soon be leaving. Going to Mexico or Central America. It’s amazing that something that dinky can fly that far and across all that water.”Overstreet was taking a short break from a day of work. Three buckets of persimmons, “astringent and non-astringent” were evidence of her efforts along with a gathering of chestnuts. Sponsored Content Email the author Print Article Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “This is just about the last of the persimmons,” she said. “My trees didn’t make that much this year. It was too dry. Just didn’t get any rain up here on the hill. One time, I got a little over three inches. The rain didn’t come after that. I sold between 300 and 400 pounds this year where I used to sell a thousand pounds. Trees just didn’t make. That’s why I took the sign down.”The “sign” is a signal to the community that Overstreet is home from her travels and primed to share the fruits of her harvest with others.Several times during the harvest season, Overstreet hangs out her “welcome” sign. The first is when her pear trees bear fruit.“I had a lot of pears. A lot of people have a lot of pears,” she said, with a smile. “I put the pears down by the road with a sign that said, ‘donations appreciated.’ I got from $4 down to nothing. That was all right. I appreciated the donations I got.”When Overstreet’s muscadines, “scuppernongs are muscadines,” were ready, she put the “grapes” in “one-pound” freezer bags and put the bags in iced-down coolers down by the side of the road.“I put up a sign that said, ‘$1 each bag,’ and not one bag was snitched,” Overstreet said, and added with a telling smile, that muscadines were selling in the grocery stores for $4 a pound.And now the persimmons are gone and the roadside signs have been put aside. But there’s still plenty for Overstreet to do – outside.“I like to be outside,” she said. “I like to stay busy.”There’s always something to do and Overstreet can always find it.She recently returned from Turkey. It was her second trip there. On the first trip, she spent her time in Istanbul. This time, she traveled the country learning about fabrics.Overstreet has a genuine interest in fabrics. She is a weaver. The upstairs of her home is testimony to that. It’s stacked with cloth, mostly second hand sheets from thrift stores. A warping board claims one wall and two large looms dominate the floor space.“I’ve got a rag rug in the loom that’s being made from a sheet,” Overstreet said. “I don’t like the colors in it so I’ve added a purple color and yellow to it. I like it better now. I’ve got to get busy. I’ve got a lot of material that needs to be used.”Overstreet has a rigid heddle loom downstairs that she’s “trying” to learn to use.“It’s different and the thread that I’m using is some really old silk thread,” she said. “It’s so thin that I have to double it to be able to even see it.”In the middle of the room is an antique rocker that Overstreet just re-caned for a lady.“Caning is an art that is dying out,” she said. “I do hand lacing and weaving and both take a lot of patience and a lot of time. I’m not going to live forever and I’d like to teach somebody how to cane. If I knew anybody that wanted to learn, I sure would be willing to teach them.”Overstreet said she had between eight and 10 hours in the caning of the rocker bottom.“It was quite a job but I like the way it turned out,” she said. “I get a lot on enjoyment from caning.”Overstreet finds pleasure at home and on the road. For most of her life, she was content at home doing the things that she loved. She spent six years building her home on the hill in Spring Hill.She had some help from her daughter, her brother and other relatives she could turn to when a job was more than she could handle alone.“When I didn’t know how to do something, I read books,” she said. “I bought a ton of old bricks, cleaned them and made the floor. I’ve never seen a floor like this except in the book I learned from. I learned as I went. I never hired anything done.”For most of Overstreet’s life, she had responsibilities and a thin pocketbook that kept her close to home. But when she retired, she found herself footloose and fancy free, so to speak.“I had always want to travel and now I go every chance I get,” she said.But Overstreet doesn’t travel by “chance.” She makes a way. She has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in five countries and taken advantage of other volunteer work “trips” when available. She likes to tour the heart of a country and there’s no better way than to travel by bicycle. She has toured Holland, Belgium, France, Australia, Poland and Germany on a bicycle. And, she doesn’t mind to bike alone.“My traveling companion and I got separated near the border of Germany and Poland,” she said. “We didn’t get back together so I continued riding. I went on to Germany, and then caught a train so I could miss the cities in France, biked to the English Channel and caught a boat across. I was gone two and a half months and enjoyed every minute it. In some ways, biking alone is better.”Not many people, especially retired women, have the adventurous spirit of Ruth Overstreet. She goes wide-eyed to distant places and to the far reaches of her backyard.And, when the persimmons are gone, she heads upstairs where the loom awaits. And, she looks forward to the days when the hummingbirds are back and the muscadines are ripe and to another great adventure down the road. Skip By Jaine Treadwell It’s just that when Overstreet ventures off her place in Spring Hill, she’s off on a great adventure.She has traveled in all 50 states, “except the tiny ones,” Rhode Island and Vermont, and 42 countries around the world. Some might think that she would have a favorite place or a favorite state but, “No, every place I’ve ever been is a best place.”And, Overstreet’s home is not the place she would rather be.
