Should I pay off my mortgage or invest the money instead?

Edward Sheldon, CFA | Saturday, 15th February, 2020 If you’re a homeowner with a mortgage and you have a little extra money to hand, you may be wondering whether it’s better to pay off your mortgage or invest the money. This is a personal finance question that seems to pop up all the time.Ultimately, the answer to the question is that it depends on a few different factors. Here, I’ll explain what you need to consider if you’re thinking about either overpaying your mortgage or investing your money.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…Check your mortgageThe first thing to consider is whether your mortgage provider will allow you to make extra payments on your mortgage without penalty. Generally speaking, most mortgage providers allow you to pay off an extra 10% of your mortgage balance if you’re in the introductory period and then pay off whatever you want after that.Yet this is not always the case – some lenders will penalise you for making overpayments in the introductory period. So it’s important to check the terms and conditions of your mortgage first. You don’t want to be hit with large fees for overpaying.Check your interest rate Assuming you can make extra payments penalty-free, the next thing to consider is your mortgage interest rate. And more specifically, how that rate compares to the returns you could potentially earn from investing.Once upon a time, when mortgage rates were high (they were above 15% in the late 1980s), overpaying your mortgage was generally a no-brainer. It made sense to reduce your debt as quickly as possible.These days, however, it’s a very different story. Today, mortgage interest rates can be under 2%, meaning that borrowing money is very cheap. If you have a mortgage at a rate of 2% and you pay off an extra £1,000, you’re only going to save £20 in interest for the year.So the question you need to ask yourself is – could you get a better return on your money (i.e. higher than the mortgage interest rate) by investing it?Higher returns from investingPersonally, I think you can earn a better return on your money by investing it, assuming you’re willing to invest for the long term. Just look at the returns from the stock market over the last five years. For the five-year period to the end of January, the FTSE 100 index generated an annualised return of 5.8%, while the FTSE 250 delivered an annualised return of 8.3%. Looking internationally, the S&P 500 returned 12.4% per year. Meanwhile, the Lindsell Train Global Equity fund returned about 18.4% per year over the five-year period.If you took that £1,000 I mentioned above and generated a return of 10% for the year through the stock market, your return would be £100 – a better result than saving £20 by overpaying the mortgage.I’ll also point out that if you put the extra money into a pension, you’d receive tax relief (£1,000 is topped up to £1,250 for basic-rate taxpayers). Similarly, if you put the £1,000 into a Lifetime ISA, you’d receive a 25% top-up. These kinds of top-ups could boost your excess capital even further.Of course, it’s worth remembering that mortgage interest rates could rise in the future. And stock market returns could potentially disappoint. However overall, I think there’s certainly a case for investing your money instead of paying off your mortgage in today’s low-interest-rate environment.

3 stocks that crushed the FTSE 100 in the last 3 months

Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100 has done well in the last three months. Since late October, shares of the leading British index have risen around 15%. Investors have bid shares of the index up as they anticipate better economic times ahead thanks to Covid-19 vaccines.While the FTSE 100 has done well, three stocks have done even better. Here’s more on three stocks that have absolutely crushed the Footsie since late October.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…NextNext (LSE: NXT) is a leading clothing retailer whose share price has surged over 25% in the last three months. Due to the rally, the Next share price is actually higher than pre-pandemic levels.I think one reason for the rally is stronger-than-expected financial results. According to an early January trading update, full-price sales before Christmas were slightly better than last year. That’s a lot better than management’s previous expectation that sales would be down 8%.Although many online users will revert to Next retail stores after the pandemic, I think many will continue to shop online. Online, I think Next will have more opportunities to create value in the future. It’s easier to target customers with ads/sales pitches online.While Next shares have surged, the company’s success depends a lot on the strength of the British and Irish economies. Next has many stores in those regions. If they don’t do as well as expected economically, Next might not do as well either.GlencoreFTSE 100 component Glencore (LSE: GLEN) is a commodity giant whose shares have surged over 50% over the last three months.Given that China’s economy, which consumes a lot of commodities, has quickly recovered from the pandemic, Glencore is looking more attractive to many investors. China’s GDP rose 6.5% in the fourth quarter and Glencore is widely regarded as a leader in the sector given its portfolio of long-life, large-scale, and low-cost commodity assets. The company makes economically sensitive commodities such as copper that could see more demand if the global economy picks up strength.In the long term, management believes the company is well positioned. According to the company, all decarbonisation pathways will need many of the commodities that Glencore produces. The commodities giant also benefits from the expected rise in the world’s population as it creates additional demand for metals and energy.Like many commodity companies, Glencore has risk if commodity prices decline or if management doesn’t execute as well as the market expects. HSBCFTSE 100 stock component HSBC (LSE:HSBA) has rallied over 30% in the last three months.The bank was previously a dividend investor favourite before regulators pressured management to suspend the dividend early last year. If HSBC pays a sizeable dividend again once the economy returns to normal, there is the possibility that it could find favour with many investors once again.Of the three stocks, I think HSBC is the one that has the most value. HSBC is trading well below book value, with a price-to-book ratio of 0.59. With the potential Biden stimulus and strong Chinese economy, I think there’s potential for even further rallies.Like other financial stocks, HSBC faces risk if growth isn’t as strong in Hong Kong and in other regions of the world as analysts predict. HSBC could also decline if investor sentiment weakens.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The deadline to max out this year’s ISA allowance is rapidly approaching. UK share investors have just over a month to make the most of their £20,000 annual investment allowance before it’s lost forever.I’ve continued to invest in my Stocks and Shares ISA despite the uncertain economic outlook. And there are plenty more UK shares on my shopping list. Here are a couple from the FTSE 100 I’m considering buying before the April 5 deadline.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 great UK gaming shareThe threat of severe regulatory action is never far away for gambling operators. Indeed, the powers-that-be have been taking fresh action in recent weeks that threaten to damage profits at the likes of Entain (LSE: ENT).But I still think this UK share is an attractive buy because the online betting sector grows at an eye-popping rate. Recent financials from Entain showed online net gaming revenues leapt 27% in 2020. The FTSE 100 firm has restarted its acquisition programme to capitalise on this fast-growing industry too. It recently splashed the cash to enter the Portuguese market and its planned acquisition of Enlabs will give it a strong foothold in Baltic states too.City analysts believe that Entain’s earnings will edge 1% higher in 2021 before soaring 38% in 2022. A word of warning, though: this UK share trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 26 times. A high rating like this could cause its shares to sharply correct if trading conditions deteriorate.5%-plus dividend yieldsI’d happily add BAE Systems (LSE: BA) to my Stocks and Shares ISA too. Recent financials from the firm underline how strong the trading environment remains. The FTSE 100 engineer said that sales had risen 4% in 2020 to £20.9bn. Order intake meanwhile rose 13% year-on-year, also to £20.9bn. And it painted a bright picture looking ahead, noting that it expected “another year of top-line growth” in 2021 along with additional margin progression and good cash flow.I don’t think BAE Systems’ key Western customers will be cutting defence spending any time soon given the volatile geopolitical backcloth. Don’t forget that worldwide arms expenditure recently rose at its fastest pace for a decade.Right now, brokers reckon annual earnings at this UK defence share will rise 10% and 9% in 2021 and 2022 respectively.These bright estimates leave the FTSE 100 company trading on a low earnings multiple too. Today it carries a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12 times. In addition, they encourage the number crunchers to predict that BAE Systems will keep paying big dividends too. The yield for 2021 sits at 5.4% for this year and for next year it moves to 5.7%.But City forecasts are no guarantee of future performance, of course, and problems with the development and production of military hardware are nothing new and could hurt the investment case. And while I don’t see any defence cuts on the horizon, in past economic downturns, the amount countries spend on armaments has come under pressure as public purses have taken a whack. That could still come to pass, even though for the time being, defence spending on the whole looks like it will keep on rising. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

New Zealand’s Top 10 tries of 2018 and fascinating year end stats

first_imgWednesday Jan 2, 2019 New Zealand’s Top 10 tries of 2018 and fascinating year end stats Despite a loss in Dublin and a home loss to the Springboks, the All Blacks are still the number one side in the world and very much favourites to claim yet another Rugby World Cup title in Japan later this year. They scored some incredible tries and notched up some fascinating stats in 2018.ADVERTISEMENTScoring a grand total of 78 tries in the year, they fell short of their best ever by just three tries. Back in 2003, they tallied up 81 tries for the year, averaging 5.78 per Test.MOST TRIES IN A CALENDAR YEAR:Argentina – 92 (2003)All Blacks – 81 (2003)South Africa – 81 (2007)Japan – 80 (2002)All Blacks – 80 (2007)All Blacks – 80 (2016)All Blacks – 78 (2018)With just two losses (36-34 to South Africa and 16-9 to Ireland) and twelve wins, it’s not all doom and gloom and while the rest of the rugby world might fancy their chances against them in the next ten months or so, we can all agree that they’ve scored some outstanding five-pointers.You can watch the top ten below (as chosen by their official youtube channel), and if you fancy watching all 78, you can see that lower down.OTHER ALL BLACKS STATS:Despite losing just twice, the All Blacks did not have the best winning percentage for the third year running. That honour in 2018 went to Ireland with a 91.66% winning record. England had the best winning percentage in 2016 and 2017.However, New Zealand had more wins (12), tries (78) and points (549) than any other team in 2018.Their record over the three year period is also best at 86.90% ahead of England’s 80% and Ireland’s 75.71%.Rieko Ioane was the leading try scorer in 2018 with 11 tries in 11 matches, taking his overall record to a very impressive 20 tries in 24 Tests. And he’s still just 21-years-old.Beauden Barrett is now the highest international scorer in the history of the flyhalf position. He’s scored 27 tries in 57 appearances,  surpassing Dan Carter’s 25 tries in 100 matches.Prop Owen Franks though, still hasn’t scored a try in Test rugby, despite playing 106 Tests for his country. He became the first scoreless Test centurion when he faced Australia.The leading Test points scorer for the second year running was Barrett, picking up 130 points while closely followed by Handre Pollard (121) and Owen Farrell (113).SUPERFANS:Watch every try (78) that New Zealand scored in 2018ADVERTISEMENT credit: all blacks/stats via scrum.com If you’re heading to the Rugby World Cup in Japan: ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks , Great Tries Related Articles 39 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

Irish giving patterns revealed

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Ireland Research / statistics Irish people are expected to give 450 million euro to charity this year, according to a new wide ranging study on charitable giving in Ireland. The study, Good Intentions: Consumer Preferences for Charities in Ireland, was undertaken by research body Amarach Consulting.Michael McLoughlin, Amarach managing director, said this giving level was not particularly generous when compared with other wealthy nations, although he conceded that it was difficult to make direct comparsions given the different tax, cultural and other differences between countries. The study found that nine out of ten people donated to one or more charities during the year with the average donation 15 euro a month. Just 12 per cent, however, make fixed monthly donations according to the survey. Older adults (aged 55-64) and high income earners were more likely to make these regular donations.

The study draws the conclusion that health related charities would fare better in the future as our population aged, while children´s charities would not do so well.Some 15 per cent of donors preferred Third World charities, with higher income groups more likely to support this cause. The research also found that Dubliners accounted for 40 per cent of all charitable donations, despite accounting for 29 per cent of the population. Some charities were failing to make use of the tax incentives available with 25 million euro being lost because they were not claiming back tax from regular donors who were paying through the PAYE system.

Changes to the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) had affected the way that the Trust needed to present its annual reports, the Trust needed to consolidate different divisions into one system, and it needed to analyse income and expenditure across particular funding streams and events, often spanning multiple financial periods.Peter Lalor, head of finance for the Surrey Wildlife Trust, explained the Trust’s choice: “We needed more detailed reporting facilities than our previous system would allow, due mainly to the changing demands of charity law. Having spoken to other Trusts that use Access Dimensions, their positive feedback gave us the confidence to opt for this solution.” Advertisementlast_img read more

DCMS inquiry highlights lack of Government support for sector during Covid-19 crisis

first_imgIn terms of support needed, the report ‘backs the charity sector’s calls for a stabilisation fund to secure the long-term financial health and organisational diversity of the sector’, and states that the Government should establish further funding to assist charities and voluntary organisations to stay afloat throughout the Covid-19 crisis and that the Secretary of State should provide an update on progress made by Friday 5 June.It also urges the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the National Lottery Community Fund ‘to publish clear and comprehensive guidance about the criteria that will be used when allocating support, and how organisations can apply for it, without delay’.Chair of the DCMS Committee Julian Knight MP said:“The strong message that charities gave us was not that they have some sort of right to survive but that people have a right to the services they provide.“We warned the Chancellor that charities told us they faced a £4bn gap in money coming in, with some smaller charities facing insolvency within weeks without immediate emergency support.“The sum of money that’s been made available goes nowhere near replacing the income that many charities have lost. We’re urging the government to set up a stabilisation fund to assist organisations to stay afloat so that we avoid increasing hardship among those who depend on charities to help them during this crisis and beyond.” Melanie May | 7 May 2020 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 DCMS inquiry highlights lack of Government support for sector during Covid-19 crisis The Government has not provided enough support for the charity sector during the Covid-19 crisis, which will result in ‘untold damage to individuals and communities’ if services are lost, according to the DCMS Committee inquiry into its impact on the sector.DCMS published its report yesterday, 6 May, finding that while the Covid-19 crisis had left many charities fighting for survival with traditional methods of generating income drying up overnight, the support announced to date is insufficient, with a lack of transparency in how funds are being allocated meaning some charities will lose out.It calls on the Government to act within the next month to increase its support and to ensure it is also available to charities facing hardship but not directly working on tackling Covid-19, saying that losing these charities ‘cannot be allowed to happen’.The report praised charity workers for being ‘some of the real heroes of the response to the pandemic, with many working with great courage on the frontline of the crisis’, and also said that while the Government’s support has so far prioritised those charities on the frontline of tackling Covid-19, many others are doing work that, ‘while not necessarily responding to Covid-19, none the less enriches our society and will be needed once the crisis is over’. These too, it said, require support.The DCMS inquiry included an evidence session to hear directly from charities and umbrella bodies about the challenges they were facing, and also received evidence from over 70 charities as well as beneficiaries.It found:The level of financial assistance announced to date falls short of what is neededThe government has been too slow to make funding availableBusiness support measures fail to deliver on needs of charity and voluntary sectorLack of clarity about how the £750 million will be allocated means charities are unclear about their eligibility and how they should applyThere has been a lack of transparency in how the funding made available is being distributedOn transparency, the report says:“Some two weeks after HM Treasury outlined £750 million of support for charities, the Secretary of State was still unable to provide sufficient detail or clarity about the eligibility criteria for allocating that funding. It seems inevitable that this lack of transparency means deserving charities will miss out on much-needed support.” Advertisement  453 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2center_img Tagged with: COVID-19 Funding  452 total views,  2 views today Sector responseChartered Institute of Fundraising Chief Executive Peter Lewis said:“The DCMS report makes a strong case for Government to take further steps that we have been calling for to provide support for charities. Every day of this crisis the need for charity services increases, yet their financial position becomes more fragile.“While we support the Committee’s focus on smaller charities,  it is not just smaller charities that are struggling to maintain services. An enhanced government package should include essential support to medium & large charities struggling to maintain services. We also believe there should be a specific focus on supporting BAME organisations who support BAME communities, and who have been disproportionately impacted by the crisis.“We need Government action to take these measures now to safeguard the future of those services that so many people and communities rely on. We will continue to make the case to Government on behalf of those charities that are never more needed.”Sir John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, also commented on the report:“This is an important report and we are pleased the committee has responded positively to our recommendations for ways to bolster the charities that do so much to support society, both now and as we  move into the recovery phase.“We proposed a whole package of measures which could be implemented to help charities in the short and longer term. We stand ready as always to work with Ministers to make this happen.“MPs on the committee rightly welcome the Government’s support for charities, but we need to think about ways in which Government, donors and charities can work together to ensure the sector remains strong. We need our charities now more than ever, and Britain cannot afford to lose this vital part of our national life.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
