Record gold and silver output at Fresnillo

first_img A RECORD boom in gold and silver output at miner Fresnillo caused investors to rush to buy the stock yesterday. The Mexico-focused miner said production will be slightly above its full-year targets thanks to a record third quarter. Gold output jumped 44.4 per cent on the year-earlier quarter to nearly 92,000 ounces in the three months to the end of September, while silver rose 1.2 per cent to reach a record output high of 10.69m ounces, the company said in an interim statement. Analysts at Numis had expected 9.6m ounces of silver, or 10.4m including the proceeds of Fresnillo’s Silverstream contract, and 81,000 ounces of gold. “This operational performance was enhanced by the significant increase in metal prices over the period,” said chief executive Jaime Lomelin.“These factors contributed to a strong overall result in the third quarter and give us confidence that the year as a whole will be one of the most successful in Fresnillo’s history.”Shares shot up more than four per cent following the announcement yesterday, before closing up 3.3 per cent at £12.82 in heavy trading.

Even if you’re doing all the right things, the low interest rates on cash savings mean that you’re likely to fail.In this article I’ll explain why I’d avoid cash for long-term savings and aim to make a million from the stock market.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 numbers don’t add upAt the time of writing, the best instant access Cash ISA savings rate I can find is 1.35%. If you saved £500 each month at that rate, it would take you 87 years to build a £1m fund.If you chose to lock your cash into a five-year fixed rate ISA, then you could earn 2.03%. But even at that rate, my sums show that you’d need nearly 73 years to reach £1m.For people on average incomes, the numbers just don’t add up. Unless interest rates rise, you’re unlikely ever to be able to save £1m in a Cash ISA.What I’d do insteadThe tax-free status of ISA accounts means that over a lifetime of saving or investing, we can avoid thousands of pounds in tax. So the first thing I’d suggest for new investors is that you open a Stocks and Shares ISA.All capital gains and income received in such an ISA are tax free — just like a Cash ISA. Your annual ISA allowance of £20,000 can be applied either type of product or split between the two. Just make sure your total contributions don’t exceed the limit each year.Getting started with stocksI believe the stock market is the best way for the majority of people to build a nest egg. But I think it’s important to structure your investments to reduce the risk of permanent losses.The solution that’s recommended by US billionaire Warren Buffett is to put at 90% of your cash into a low-cost index tracker fund. In the UK, I’d recommend a FTSE 100 tracker fund.Index trackers have two great advantages, in my opinion. The first is that they are normally the cheapest funds you’ll find in which to invest. Management fees can eat into your returns, so this is good news.The second advantage is that history suggests the market will always recover from a crash. That’s not always true for individual companies or actively-managed funds. For example, many investors have suffered big losses recently due to the liquidation of Neil Woodford’s funds.Make £1m before you retireAccording to research carried out by Barclays, the UK stock market has generated an average annual return of about 8% over the last 100 years.If you invest £500 per month at this rate, it would take about 33 years to reach £1m. So if you started at age 25, you could have a £1m stock market fund by age 58 — about nine years before you reach State Pension age.The final 10%What about the remaining 10% of your cash? If you’re interested in investing and are happy to spend some time researching stocks, then I’d consider investing this money directly in a handful of growth stocks.I’d focus on companies that are profitable, generate cash and have an easy-to-understand business model. If your efforts prove successful over a number of years, then you can always increase your allocation of cash to growth stocks. This could help you to hit £1m much sooner than you’d expect.

How I’d invest to make a £1m in a Stocks and Shares ISA

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Tom Rodgers | Monday, 29th June, 2020 Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Tom Rodgers “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Stocks and Shares ISA success doesn’t come for free. But it might be a lot cheaper than you think.Whether you started at 20, just got going at 30, or still haven’t made your first purchase at 40, it doesn’t really matter.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 only things you need are regular commitment and time.Why? Well, over the course of 35 years, from 1984 to 2019, the FTSE 100 returned an average 7.75% per year.Take your timePromises of immediate riches at zero risk are confined to scams designed to cheat you out of your money. You will have to take some risk: you do have to invest money to make money.But if you invest over a long enough time frame, you can certainly reduce your risk and keep more of your money.Investing the same amount in a Stocks and Shares ISA every month does two things.Firstly, it allows you to ‘pound-cost average’. This means you take advantage of cheaper prices when the market is down and smooths out your returns over time. It also makes sure you don’t just buy in a lump sum when the stock market could be well overvalued.Secondly, it builds up compound gains. The longer you can keep investing, the more compound interest works in your favour.For example, say you start with a healthy £10,000 lump sum. Buy a single FTSE 100 tracker and let it sit in your Stocks and Shares ISA. If you add nothing to this £10,000 over 35 years, you end up with £136,664, at the average 7.75% a year return.But add £500 a month and that £136,664 suddenly turns into £1,154,996! Compound interest becomes exponentially more powerful the more we can add to our original stake over time.Sticking with a lump sum is like powering an engine with coal. But adding extra money every month is like injecting it with rocket fuel!ReinvestEach scrap of cash you can put together in a Stocks and Shares ISA should be working to make you richer.And history has shown us that investors make their most money over time from reinvesting dividends. Without this key fact, you lose the ability to take advantage of compounding.At first, the impact from reinvesting dividends is quite small. Not much will happen for the first 10 to 15 years: a long time to see no huge growth! But after 15 years, your wealth really starts to motor.Think of an exponential curve. It starts small, and increases slowly. Then suddenly it starts to increase rapidly, and shoots ever higher each year after that.The additional impact every year from ever greater numbers starts to hit a critical mass at about year 18. If you can be patient and hold on, this is where you’ll make your £1m.Stocks and Shares ISA successThe best thing about a Stocks and Shares ISA is that all your gains are tax-free. You don’t have to give the government a slice of your earnings from share price rises or dividends, and it will never cost you anything to take money out.Following the simple principle of adding £500 a month and staying consistent over time. That’s how I plan to make £1m in my Stocks and Shares ISA, and I think you can too.

At one time or another we are all down on our luck and I hope that other cities (Denver) get a clue and understand the importance of such a wonderful project not just for the homeless, but for all involved. This is a huge life lesson and I only hope those in Denver’s authority get a clue and assist rather than destroy as they have done in the past when this has been attempted. So many are in need especially ex-military, it is the least we could do to help them transition back into regular day to day life.May your program be a HUGE success and hopefully many other cities will learn from it. God bless and thank you for thinking of others as we should all be doing with today’s challenging world! A sketch of the proposed Housing First Village shows tiny houses grouped around a community resource center. Photo: Montana State University School of Architecture[Episcopal News Service] A coalition of Episcopalians, architecture students and social service providers in Bozeman, Montana, are in the middle of an innovative project that aims to address homelessness in the city – 155 square feet at a time.The concept is a village of tiny houses for the chronically homeless centered around a community resource center, where residents could receive counseling, medical assistance and employment help until they are able to move into permanent homes. Organizers still are looking for an appropriate site, but most of the other pieces of the project are falling into place as other groups and individuals in the community rally behind the idea.“Suddenly, this coalition has risen up that is excited about what we wanted to do,” said the Rev. Connie Pearson-Campbell, a deacon at St. James Episcopal Church in Bozeman who is one of the driving forces behind the planned Housing First Village.Sara Savage, housing director at Human Resource Development Council, or HRDC, called Pearson-Campbell a “PR hurricane” in drumming up support for the project. HRDC, a nonprofit community action agency, brings to the table years of experience proving shelter and services to the local homeless population.Montana State University is the third key player in the coalition. The School of Architecture created a course last fall in which students designed the tiny houses, and subsequent courses this year will help move the project through the regulatory and construction phases.“We realize it’s probably a couple of years, or at least a year, before we’d be able to move the first units onto a site,” architecture professor Ralph Johnson said. “These things don’t happen overnight. But we’re moving faster than most of the communities” that have attempted similar projects.Tiny houses are a big trend in the home-building world and in popular culture. Multiple reality TV shows have popped up to feature these small living spaces, even prompting some in the tiny house industry to debate whether such shows are good or bad for the “movement.”In that context, tiny houses are seen as a hip way to downsize your living space, but some communities, such as St. George, Utah, and Seattle , have shown that tiny houses can be tools for outreach to homeless or low-income populations.The Episcopal Church has its own share of examples. St. James Episcopal Church on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota used a United Tank Offering grant to build tiny houses for students. And St. John’s Episcopal Church in St. Cloud, Minnesota, built a single tiny house to accommodate one homeless person on its property.What makes Pearson-Campbell and St. James Episcopal Church unique is they represent one leg of a three-legged stool supporting a mission that came together almost by accident.About 150 people are estimated to be homeless on any given night in Bozeman, and 30 percent are considered chronically homeless, a condition often tied to mental illness, substance abuse or other personal challenges, Savage said. Survival on the streets can be precarious, especially in Montana’s harsh winter months, and six homeless people were reported to have died in 2016 in Bozeman.The HRDC had been housing about 10 people at a time at a transitional living space called Amos House, but it was forced to close last July after losing a federal grant. St. James stepped up and offered an unused home on church property, called Canterbury House, allowing HRDC to convert it to housing for up to four homeless women.“I have to say, having one of our local faith-based partners look within their own resources … was so powerful and really made a direct impact on homeless women within a month,” Savage said.Separately, Pearson-Campbell said, she heard last summer from a friend about a tiny houses project in Detroit, and it got her thinking about trying something similar to address Bozeman’s homelessness problem.“I took one look at that and thought, oh my gosh, I think we can do this in Bozeman,” she said.She brought the idea up in a meeting with the city planning director in August. On her way out, she just happened to pass Johnson, the Montana State professor, who was on his way in to talk to the planning director on an unrelated matter. After introductions, a tiny house partnership quickly was formed.Johnson took the idea back to the university and, with two other professors, created the course that fall in which 12 students took on the task of designing the tiny houses.“I knew that within the School of Architecture there’s a strong moral ethic among students,” he said. “And so based upon Connie’s personality and her aspirations, I offered a class in small shelters for the city of Bozeman.”The result was two models, each just 155 square feet or a bit larger. One was designed to be accessible to people with disabilities. Each model featured a single bed, storage area, a shower and toilet, a compact refrigerator, a microwave, a sink and space for a chair.Residents could receive counseling, medical assistance and employment help until they are able to move into permanent homes. Photo: Montana State University School of ArchitectureThe students then created full-scale mockups from cardboard and tested them, including by inviting members of the homeless community inside. The semester concluded with an open house in December. More than 100 people came to see the models and learn about the project, Johnson said.Six students will build the first of the tiny houses in a new course this semester that also will address some of the regulatory hurdles. Bozeman’s building code, like building codes in many cities across the country, includes restrictions on lot usage, dwelling size and home layout that don’t easily accommodate tiny houses, Johnson said. His students will research options that can be presented to city officials.And then there is the challenge of finding an appropriate site for what eventually could be dozens of tiny houses and the community resource center. Savage doesn’t have any definite timeline for securing a site. Factors include cost, zoning and proximity to other residences.“Should the right parcel become available, we’d be able to move rather quickly,” Savage said. “But it will require some alignment of the stars, as it does with any major project like this.”As for construction cost, the materials needed to build each tiny house are estimated at $10,000 – or less, if any materials are donated.St. James has committed enough money to build one of the houses, and one of Pearson-Campbell’s tasks is to enlist more churches and community groups to give money or even assemble one of the houses themselves as a service project. Johnson’s students eventually hope to develop assembly instructions that will make it easy for those groups to build the houses themselves, similar to an IKEA furniture kit, Johnson said.The moral ethic Johnson sees in many of his students often materializes as a desire to build energy-efficient buildings, he said, but this project is built on a sense of social responsibility.“If this can give those who are homeless an opportunity to resolve the issues that place them in a homeless circumstance, we owe it to them to give them that opportunity,” he said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Final Hours on the Job for Indiana Secretary of Ag

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleGMO Bill Moves out of Agriculture CommitteeNext articleFarm Property Tax Reduction Facing Tough Fight Andy Eubank Pence on LGIndiana Lt. Governor and Secretary of Agriculture Sue Ellspermann is in her final hours on the job as she turns her attention to the possible top spot at Ivy Tech Community College. The lieutenant governor vacancy will officially exist as of 5 PM Wednesday. Governor Mike Pence told HAT this week that the people of the state, and particularly those in agriculture, owe Ellspermann a debt of gratitude for her service.“The dedication that she has shown over the last 3 years to advancing the interests of our state, carrying herself with such dignity, but really becoming a passionate, passionate advocate for the interests of agriculture in the state of Indiana cannot be overstated.”Ellspermann submitted her resignation this week with what she called a conflicted heart. Pence said he too has mixed emotions.“She’s not only a great partner but she’s a great friend,” he said. “But I really do believe the opportunity to serve Indiana in higher education leading our largest post-secondary institution is a profound one. I think she’ll be able to help guide the development of a great, well educated, well skilled workforce in the future. But I think every Hoosier should be grateful for the service and the example of Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann.”Her successor will be Eric Holcomb and the governor feels he will serve agriculture well, based in part on his experience with ag friendly administrations starting in the Mitch Daniels years.“He is not only a Navy veteran, but he is someone who has worked with our delegation in Washington,” Pence said. “He has served a member of congress and currently just finished up a tour of duty serving a member of the U.S. Senate, but also he worked with two administrations. He was deputy chief of staff for Governor Daniels during years where we saw a great increase in the diversity and the strength of agriculture in the state, and he has worked closely with our administration as we move forward and build on that momentum.”Pence is confident that Holcomb will use that vast experience in state and federal issues to champion Indiana agriculture. His confirmation by the Indiana House and Senate chambers is expected Thursday morning, with a swearing-in ceremony to follow.
