Here’s how the FTSE 100 crash could help us beat the State Pension

first_img Do you want to beat the State Pension in 2020? I reckon the FTSE 100 crash in the wake of the coronavirus threat can help us do just that. After all, if the virus doesn’t actually kill us, we’ll still need to provide for our old age once the crisis is over.A full State Pension will be worth £9,110.40 from 5 April. It’s going up an extra £6.40 per week, but that’s really not the kind of cash that will propel us to a luxurious old age. On the bright side, it’s a lot more than most of the world’s inhabitants get. And if we treat it as just a starting point, it does offer a boost to whatever pension plans we can make for ourselves.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…Pensions hitCompany pension schemes provide more income for many on the State Pension. But you might be worried that the FTSE 100 crash has hurt their prospects. Such schemes tend to be invested in a wide range of assets, but a fair portion goes into shares. When shares fall, the values of pension funds fall, and the more talk we hear of pension fund deficits and the like.The FTSE 100 today is worth around 20% less than it was at the start of the year, and that sounds like it could deal a big blow to pension funds. But I think it’s a misleading figure on two counts. Firstly, the fall in share prices hasn’t damaged the dividend income that pension funds get from their shares. And unless the coronavirus pandemic causes significant long-term harm to the companies paying out the cash, I really don’t think it’s going to.Secondly, short-term falls tend to recover. The previous big slump was caused by the financial crisis. But since those depths, returns from the Footsie have more than doubled (once you include dividends). I expect the same thing to happen this time, though I think the recovery could be a lot quicker. A few months down the line and the virus pandemic could be over, whereas the fallout from the banking crunch went on for years.Personal pensionsIf the stock market crash won’t do any real harm to company pensions, it can provide a positive boon to our private pension investments. And it’s our private pensions that provide the best opportunity for us to supplement the State Pension.I have a chunk of my pension cash in my SIPP, transferred out of an old company pension. My plans, over the course of 2020, are to put that cash into shares I select myself. I’m mainly seeking shares paying good dividends, and a Footsie slump is throwing up better yields than I’ve seen in years.Any company that was yielding, say, 4% at the start of 2020 would be offering a 5% yield today – assuming the share price has fallen 20% along with the index.On top of better dividend yields, I have full confidence that the FTSE 100 will recover strongly once the current crisis has passed. In short, I think the next couple of months could provide some terrific pension investing opportunities. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Alan Oscroft | Monday, 9th March, 2020 Image source: Getty Images I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Shale oil, energy debt and false promises

first_imgEven before the first case of the coronavirus COVID-19 was confirmed in the United States, fault lines were appearing in financial markets here. Corporate debt reached 75 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product. It had more than tripled to a record $16 trillion — three times the 2008 global economy. (New York Times, March 3)The energy industry remains one of the biggest engines of this debt. Within the much-touted shale oil industry, debt — driven by the excessive cost of fracking for natural gas and oil and the need to repay investors — is now six times greater than industry income. Much of this debt is held by leading global investment banks, which last year increased their holdings by nearly 40 percent.These banks dominate fossil fuel funding. JP Morgan Chase leads the pack, with almost $257 billion in investments. Others include Wells Fargo, Citibank and Bank of America.In early March, energy banker Mike Lister at JP Morgan Chase reported: “Banks wrote off as much as $1 billion in 2019 in reserve-based shale loans, more than they have in 30 years of making them.” On March 9, reported “an additional $40 billion of shale debts are expected to come due in 2020, followed by over $160 billion in debts over the following three years.”This sudden rush to dump shale investment debt may be a case of too little, too late. Since its inception, the U.S. shale industry has incurred extremely high production costs — $30 to $50 per barrel compared to $4 to $12 a barrel in Saudi Arabia. Yet this has done little to discourage investment risk takers.Even with stock markets crashing, it would not be surprising if Congress and the Trump administration were to slip in yet another bailout for the energy industry.For years, the industry has lured investors using model wells with higher than average productive capacity — while being fully aware that most wells stop being productive after a few years. Their solution to this dilemma was to drill even more wells, which required ever greater investments.A decade ago, energy companies promised “a 100-year supply” of shale gas. But as more wells were drilled, the price of natural gas dipped to an all-time low. When wells played out after a few years, more were drilled. The result was production glut.An article in the Oct. 21, 2012, New York Times was titled “After the Boom in Natural Gas.” It wasn’t about pollution or ruined land values or jobs. Their concern? “The gas rush is a money loser so far for many of the gas exploration companies and their tens of thousands of investors.” Gas producers drilled too many wells too quickly, causing the sale price to fall below production costs.At that time, the industry’s solution was to push for the export of natural gas and oil, despite decades of prohibitive restrictions. Under the Obama administration, measures were taken to reverse the flow direction in pipelines, so that instead of bringing gas and oil into the country, they were delivered to new port facilities for export. Suddenly, exports were not just allowed, they were encouraged. Whatever remaining legal barriers disappeared overnight.Under the Trump administration, shale oil and natural gas have become critical drivers of the U.S. economy as this country became one of the world’s largest exporters. Pushing a program of U.S. “energy dominance,” Trump promoted the faulty argument that domestic shale oil and gas production benefit national security by insulating the U.S. against the actions of other countries. To ensure this dominance, while simultaneously lifting environmental restrictions, Trump also expanded economic sanctions against two of the U.S.’s largest competitors — Russia and Venezuela.It now appears that relying on the shale industry to save the economy may have left the U.S. more vulnerable during times of crisis — like the global COVID-19 pandemic.Big hole in the barrelAt the close of commodity trading March 18, oil dropped to $22.46 a barrel, one-third of its mid-February price. Goldman Sachs currently predicts it could drop to as low as $20 a barrel. If Saudi Arabia continues to slash prices, a further fall to $10 a barrel is possible.Beginning in early March, OPEC and Russia agreed to lower the price per barrel. Both enjoy low production costs which make this possible. Not so the U.S. Currently the price would need to be at least $48 a barrel so that Texas’ Permian basin would recoup its production costs. By contrast, current production costs in Saudi Arabia are around $2.80 a barrel.Although OPEC announced it would reduce production, Russia, already hard hit by U.S. sanctions, announced it will keep production at current levels because it needs the revenue. With production already impacted by U.S. sanctions, there is no incentive for Russia to carry the burden of U.S. energy debt.Karl Marx understood that the source of all profits under capitalism stems from the exploitation of labor: Production is for profit, not human need. Competition for market control leads to the introduction of technology, which leads to increased exploitation of labor to maximize production. But increased production can also drive prices down.To compensate, even more technology is introduced, which results in a glut of products on the market and leads to overproduction and unemployment. If capital can’t sell all it produces, and overproduction cuts into profits because prices drop, production is halted.Fracking may be exempt from government regulations, but it can’t escape the laws of capitalism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Flood emergency triggers crackdown on journalists in Iran

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesOnline freedoms ImprisonedInternetCitizen-journalists “The Iranian authorities continue to persecute journalists, even during an emergency of this scale when media coverage is essential for the affected population,” said Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran desk. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the latest crackdown on the media in Iran, in which around 30 journalists and citizen-journalists have been summoned, questioned or arrested in the past few weeks. Professional journalists, who are constantly exposed to harassment, have done their best to cover the crisis and some have accused the authorities of not being prepared for an emergency of this scale. Several reporters have been hounded by militias and Revolutionary Guards, and in some cases summoned for questioning, especially in Khuzestan province. Receive email alerts RSF_en The crackdown has above all been prompted by online criticism of the slow pace with which the authorities have responded to massive flooding in around 25 provinces since 22 March.
