Another FTSE 100 market crash is inevitable. Unfortunately, nobody can say with any confidence when it will be or what will cause it. It could be next month and due to a new wave of coronavirus infections. A hard Brexit could crash the market early next year.Investors may already be reeling from the last FTSE 100 market crash in March. Hearing that another one is always on the cards might make them run away from stocks for good. This would be a mistake. Market crashes are part and parcel of investing. Rather than fear them, investors need to learn how to deal with them. That means both avoiding financial ruin when markets crash and seizing the opportunities that they offer.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…Portfolio protectionA market crash does not sink all stocks equally. Some groups of stocks will do worse than others depending on the cause of the crash. Oil & gas and travel stocks got hammered this last time around. In 2009 it was the financial stocks that took the bigger beating.Since it is difficult to say what will cause the next market crash, a portfolio is better prepared to deal with it if it contains stocks from multiple industries. You would not have wanted a portfolio loaded with bank stocks in 2009, nor one full of airlines and cruise ship operators in March of this year.The FTSE 100 has stocks from 10 industries but does suffer from concentration in a few of them as can be seen in the table below. For example, there are 10 times as many consumer services companies, like Ocado and Informa, as there are telecommunications companies like Vodafone and BT. An investor might like quite a few of the 12 or so consumer goods stocks, but struggle to choose which (if any) of the two oil & gas stocks to invest in. How to invest if the FTSE 100 market crashes Technology344% Picking the top-rated stock from each industry is one way to diversify industry risk with the lowest number of stocks and the least amount of fuss. Of course, some industries are  fancied to do better than others. At the moment, 58% of analyst ratings for consumer goods stocks, like British American Tobacco and Persimmon, are ‘buy’s. An investor could look to add a few extra stocks in the more favoured industries if they choose to.Market crash opportunitiesThe best guess for the long-term direction of stock market returns including dividends – yes, there is a dividend drought at present, but it won’t always be this way – is up. Market crashes offer the chance to pick up more shares for your money because they are cheaper. Cheaper shares pay the same amount of dividends and behave just like shares bought at higher prices in the long run.But as stated previously, predicting the ups and downs of the market is tough. Therefore taking advantage of market crash opportunities can be as simple as not hesitating to invest when the markets are falling. Buying into markets as they rise, only to stop when they fall will increase the average price of the shares bought. Regularly investing will lower the average purchase price of FTSE 100 shares by taking advantage of market crash opportunities.last_img read more

I’d spend £5k right now on cheap dividend-paying UK shares for 2021

first_img Investing £5k, or any other amount, in cheap dividend-paying UK shares may be an attractive option for 2021 and the long term. After all, FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares offer higher passive incomes than other income-producing assets such as cash and bonds.Furthermore, dividend-paying stocks could become increasingly popular over the medium term. Their potential to deliver dividend growth, as well as a lack of opportunities available elsewhere, could turn an investment today into a surprisingly large amount over the long run.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 passive income appeal of cheap dividend-paying UK sharesThe stock market crash means that many dividend-paying UK shares currently trade at cheap prices. Certainly, the stock market rally has lifted the levels of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 in recent weeks.However, many stocks still trade at considerably lower levels than they did at the start of the year. As such, their dividend yields are high in many cases. Evidence of this can be seen in the FTSE 100’s dividend yield, which currently stands at around 5%.On a relative basis, UK shares currently offer an attractive passive income. Obtaining even 20% of the FTSE 100’s yield via cash or high-quality bonds is tough. Meanwhile, other assets such as buy-to-let bring problems such as a lack of diversification and high initial deposit requirements.Therefore, from an income investing outlook as 2021 comes more sharply into view, dividend-paying UK shares appear to be the best option for a £5k investment, or any other amount.Capital growth potential in a stock market rallyAs well as their passive income prospects in 2021, dividend-paying UK shares could deliver capital growth in a likely stock market recovery. Their high yields suggest that, in many cases, they currently offer good value for money.This may mean they have significant scope to deliver impressive capital returns as the economic outlook improves and investor sentiment does likewise.Furthermore, their potential to produce dividend growth may improve during the course of 2021. Stronger operating conditions prompted by fiscal and monetary policy stimulus packages may filter through to many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies.Alongside an improving economic outlook, this may cause dividend-paying UK shares to raise their shareholder payouts. The end result could be increasing dividends, as well as rising popularity among investors that pushes their share prices higher.Managing risksOf course, dividend-paying UK shares are riskier than other income-producing assets. Therefore, it’s imperative that an investor checks the financial soundness of companies before investing in them. Furthermore, building a diverse portfolio of companies can help to further reduce overall risks.Over time, a portfolio of dividend stocks could offer a potent mix of passive income and capital growth. As such, now could be an opportune moment to buy a range of them.

The Motley Fool UK owns shares of Naked Wines. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. See all posts by Manika Premsingh FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge This is the season of improved corporate performance. Comparisons with a weak period last year and the reopening of society have helped this trend. And some sectors have seen genuine demand increases over the past year too. Two UK shares to benefit from these trends are wine company Naked Wines (LSE: WINE) and chip-maker Alphawave (LSE: AWE).Naked Wines: strong sales growthNaked Wines reported a 68% increase in sales for the year ending March 29. As more people made online purchases, the company, which funds wine producers and sells online, gained. I would be concerned about its net loss in other circumstances. But it explained that it was due to a big rise in investment in new customers. Also, its profits from repeat customers have strengthened significantly. 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…It is also positive on its outlook. In fact, it is one of the few companies I have covered recently to have provided concrete guidance in an uncertain year. This reflects its confidence to me. I think improved numbers will be supported by economic growth. Naked Wines is focused on the US market, which contributes to around half its revenues. The US economy is going strong and that is likely to continue.The one risk I see is that as consumers step out more to wine and dine, there could be a slowdown in demand for online orders. But since overall consumer demand should rise, that issue may have little impact. I think the risk is limited. Alphawave IP: future positiveAlphawave IP is another company to release a positive update. The chip-maker provides high-speed connectivity solutions to data centres. These are for 5G wireless infrastructure and autonomous vehicles, among other uses. It reported “record results” regarding the number of bookings earlier today. For the first half of 2021, the Canadian company booked orders of $190m. This included both new wins and business with existing customers. The company, which was listed on the London Stock Exchange’s main market only a month ago, saw explosive growth in 2020. From the numbers for 2021 so far, it looks like this year will also be a good one for the company. Alphawave IP’s share price is up over 2% in today’s trading on the news, indicating renewed investor interest in the stock.In the days following its weak initial public offering (IPO) in the UK last month, its share price fell and remained relatively muted. However, today’s news could mark a break in that trend. But it remains to be seen what happens next. Even with the gains made so far today, its share price is still below the 380p levels seen shortly after it was publicly listed.My takeaway for the UK sharesOn the whole, both UK shares look good to me. There are of course downsides to keep in mind. But I think both are growing companies that could prove to be lucrative investments over the next few years for me.  Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. New telephone fundraising agency Karat Marketing opens for business today, based in Dunfermline, Fife, home to former telephone fundraising agency R Fundraising which closed in August. Twenty five of the new agency’s 30 staff previously worked at R Fundraising.Karat serves clients throughout the UK. It already has four clients, three of them based in Scotland and one in London. It will begin work with five more next month.The agency is a joint venture between Revolutionise, based in Fort Augustus, Scotland and Dialogous Fundraising, based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Revolutionise’s Alan Clayton will chair the board and Dialogous Fundraising’s Jacob Rolin is director of fundraising services. Peter Saxkjaer, also a director of Dialogous Fundraising, is managing director of Karat.Alan Clayton was chief executive of R Fundraising for just under three years until 2013.Sharon Comfort and Lauren Semple, former senior account managers at R Fundraising, have joined Karat as client services directors and will manage the call centre. They are joined by Hugh McCaw, a  founder of R Fundraising, as a non-executive client services director.Despite recruiting many former staff of R Fundraising, Clayton made it clear that Karat is a new agency, with no continuation or assets from R Fundraising.Karat?Clayton explained that the name ‘Karat’ has been chosen to emphasise the philosophy of the new agency, namely that “donors are worth their weight in gold and will be treated as such”.He also explained why the agency had been established quickly.“There is huge demand for high quality, donor-centred telephone fundraising following recent developments in the sector.“I have known many of the fundraisers in Dunfermline for years and we were immediately able to recruit 30 of the highest performing and most experienced fundraisers. This gave us the opportunity to move quickly not only to meet immediate client needs but to avoid losing the large talent pool in Dunfermline and to invest in the local area.“These fundraisers are so passionate about the causes they represent and many have a decade of experience in high quality fundraising and excellent results.
