Where I’d invest money to get a monthly income

first_imgWhere I’d invest money to get a monthly income “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” When you retire, a reliable monthly income will probably be one of your top priorities. After all, you’ll need to replace your employment income.The traditional choice is an annuity. These provide a  guaranteed income, but annuity rates are low and choosing this option means you lose control of your capital forever.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…An alternative choice is to invest your pension fund directly to provide a monthly income. By doing this you keep hold of your capital and retain the option to spend it or — potentially — leave it to someone else.Today, I want to explain what the options are for UK investors seeking a monthly income from the stock market. I’ll also discuss how I’m building my own retirement income portfolio.Choosing a fundThere are lots of UK income funds available to investors, but only a small number of these offer a monthly income.Most funds will pay dividends quarterly or, more often, every six months. For example, fund supermarket Hargreaves Lansdown lists more than 70 UK equity income funds, but only 10 which pay income monthly.If I wanted a monthly income fund, I might consider the Threadneedle UK Monthly Income fund, which has a long track record and currently offers a 4.8% yield.For a higher yield, the Fidelity Enhanced Income fund (6.5%) might be worth a look. However, it’s worth remembering that funds with names including enhanced, maximiser or booster are generally structured so they provide a higher yield today but won’t generate any capital gains.What I’d really doTo be honest, I probably wouldn’t buy a monthly fund. There are two reasons for this. The first is you get a much bigger choice if you’re willing to consider funds which pay every three or six months.The second reason is I think it’s pretty risky to rely on monthly fund payments directly for your living expenses.What most financial advisers recommend is that you should build up a buffer of perhaps 12 months’ living expenses in a cash savings account. You then take your monthly income from this account while allowing your investment income to build up for the following year.Doing this means if markets crash, your monthly income will be safe for another year. This provides time for the market to recover and protects you from the risk of having to be a forced seller, accepting low prices for instant cash.I’m buying sharesI think there are some attractive income funds available at the moment. But I’ve chosen to buy dividend shares directly to build an income portfolio for my retirement. What I’m looking for are large businesses with good cash generation and attractive dividend yields.Examples of the kind of companies I’d buy for a long-term income in today’s market are Royal Dutch Shell (6.3% yield), HSBC Holdings (6.7%), GlaxoSmithKline (4.4%) and Aviva (7.6%).Stocks such as these can be found in many top income funds. But if you’re prepared to do a little research, you can invest directly and save yourself the annual fund management fees. That’s what I’m doing.

Answers needed after public radio programme pulled in suspicious manner

first_img to go further Organisation Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about alleged political interference at Portugal’s main public radio station, Antena 1, which suddenly scrapped a morning current affairs programme called Este Tempo and terminated the contracts of five of the programme’s commentators just days after one of them, Pedro Rosa Mendes, was very critical of the government on the air.“If confirmed, these actions are absolutely unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This case highlights the urgency of the need to overhaul the method of appointing those who run the public broadcast media in Portugal and several other European Union member states, so that media independence is guaranteed. “Portugal’s state broadcaster, Rádio Televisão Portuguesa (RTP), must explain itself because questions need answering. If the decision to drop this programme had been taken ‘some time ago,’ as claimed, why did it wait to tell the commentators until the last week of their contracts? And what were the editorial grounds for this decision, because so far none has been given?”Neither RTP’s director-general nor his press office responded to Reporters Without Borders’ request for a comment.It was on 23 January that Antena 1’s news director told Este Tempo’s five commentators that their contracts would not be renewed at the end of the month and that the programme would cease to be broadcast from 30 January onwards.Mendes believes these decisions were the direct result of his 18 January commentary criticizing a special broadcast by the state TV channel RTP1 two days earlier from the Angolan capital, Luanda, in which Portugal’s parliamentary affairs minister, Miguel Relvas, also the minister in charge of the state broadcast media, took part. The broadcast, about relations between Portugal and Angola, was widely criticized as a “piece of propaganda” on behalf of Angola’s authoritarian government.RTP director-general Luís Marinho told the national media he took responsibility for the decision to scrap Este Tempo, which he said was taken “some time ago.” The decision nonetheless took all of its reporters and producers by surprise. Raquel Freire, a filmmaker who delivered a commentary every Tuesday, only learned on the eve of her last commentary.Mendes has told journalists that one of Antena 1’s news director’s told him the programme had been pulled in response to a direct request from the RTP administration, which is appointed by the government. “Luís Marinho explicitly told two Antena 1 directors that the 18 January commentary on Angola had not pleased the government and that this opinion slot was going to be eliminated.”Mendes told Reporters Without Borders that, when members of the Antena 1 administration contacted him about a technical issue regarding his contract on 20 January – two days after the broadcast of his commentary but before the announcement of the programme’s demise – they said nothing about his contract being terminated. Until then, their contracts had been renewed almost automatically every six months for the previous two years.“Doesn’t his prove that Antena 1’s decision was taken after 20 January, rather than before? “ Reporters Without Borders asked.The opposition in parliament has been pressing for an explanation from Relvas, the parliamentary affairs minister. The Media Regulatory Body meanwhile yesterday questioned Antena 1 programmes chief Rui Pêgo, news director João Barreiros and deputy news director Ricardo Alexandre (who was responsible for the morning slot).Alexandre announced today that he was relinquishing his responsibility for the morning slot. When reached by Reporters Without Borders, he refused to say why. The press freedom organisation will continue to follow this case closely.Portugal is ranked 33rd out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
