It was hard to imagine, not that many years ago, that a seemingly meat-loving, old-fashioned and perhaps even cheap bakery like Greggs (LSE: GRG) would be able to move with the times. Trendy, artisan bakeries and shops were becoming the norm, while a growing market of vegetarian and vegan consumers seemed highly unlikely to be the backbone of a company whose number one product – the sausage roll – was king.Of course we know how this went. As well as outfitting some of its stores in a more café-like, sit-in-and-enjoy style, the introduction of the vegan sausage roll has taken on an almost cultural significance. It’s perhaps a sign of Greggs’ overall popularity that just one addition to its product line could garner such interest.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…Greggs deliveryYet another modern arena it now seems to be making moves into is delivery service. Specifically, it recently announced it would be partnering with Just Eat to offer its products exclusively – much to the chagrin of UberEats and Deliveroo. The company is also trialling electronic pads that allow for click & collect.I think from an investor’s standpoint these are good signs. Greggs has so far managed to move with the times, and yet somehow maintain, for better or worse, its previous image. Interestingly, I think in terms of its products at least, in many ways Greggs can be compared to the US giant McDonald’s. The original concept behind McDonald’s was that a consumer could walk into a store anywhere in the US (and now, of course, the world), and know exactly what they were getting – a Big Mac in New York tastes the same as a Big Mac in Hong Kong.Greggs’ food is very much the same. When you go into a Greggs in any part of the country, you know exactly what you’re getting – it will taste identical to the Greggs you had the week before in a different city. This is a very successful business model.As long as we like pasties…As I said, a few years ago, I couldn’t have imagined Greggs being able to move with the times with the success that it has managed. The fact that it has been able to do this encourages me on two major fronts for the future of its shares.Firstly, the management of the company has shown a willingness to change and adapt – always key to the success of any firm. What’s more, it has seemingly done this in the right way, with well-picked choices regarding what to change and what to preserve.Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, has been its continued sales growth in a period when more people are more health-conscious, as well as more vegan and more interested in ‘artisan’ products. Most people know Greggs’ baked products are not the healthiest, but we like them just the same. I can’t see this changing any time soon.last_img read more

Forget buy-to-let. I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA today to make a million

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Forget buy-to-let. I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA today to make a million Making a million from the FTSE 100 may seem unlikely after the index’s recent market crash. It faces an uncertain near-term outlook that could realistically cause its price level to decline.As such, some investors may feel that buy-to-let properties offer less risk and a greater chance of generating high returns in 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…However, the FTSE 100 has a strong track record of recovery from its most challenging periods. Investors who can buy a diverse range of stocks today, ahead of an improving period for the index over the long run, that may generate high returns to improve their chances of making a million.Long-term recovery potentialThe chances of the FTSE 100 returning to its record high may seem somewhat unlikely at present. After all, the UK economy is yet to fully emerge from lockdown and is likely to experience a recession over the coming months. This could cause business, consumer and investor confidence to come under pressure. In turn, that may mean the valuations of a range of large-cap shares may decline.However, the FTSE 100 has experienced similarly challenging economic periods on a number of occasions during its lifetime. At times, the index has lost over half of its value in a matter of months as weak economic data has prompted increasing risk aversion among investors.The index has always not only recovered from such periods, but has then gone on to post new record highs after every one of its bear markets. Investors who’ve taken a long-term view of the index and its prospects through buying stocks when they trade at bargain prices have generally been highly rewarded.Buy-to-let appealBy contrast, the returns from buy-to-let properties could be less favourable than those offered by FTSE 100 shares. House prices may decline in the near term so that the sector offers better value for money. But factors such as changing tax rules could mean net returns from buy-to-let property are relatively unattractive.For example, many landlords will no longer be able to offset mortgage interest payments against rental income on a property. This could reduce their net returns at a time when void periods may be longer and rental growth lower as a result of a period of slower growth for the economy.Buying FTSE 100 stocks todayInvestors buying FTSE 100 stocks today could realistically outperform the index over the long run. Its annualised total return of over 8% since inception may be relatively impressive compared to other mainstream assets. But buying large-cap shares when they trade on low valuations could yield an even higher return for long-term investors. They may be able to take advantage of the recent market crash and benefit from a likely recovery.While this process is unlikely to take place at a fast pace, it could improve your portfolio returns in the coming years. And increase your chances of making a million. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

It doesn’t have to be that way though. Investing in UK shares is a tried-and-tested way of getting rich and retiring early. The rocketing number of Stocks and Shares ISA millionaires over the past decade is perfect evidence of this.You don’t have to spend a fortune to try and reach this goal either. But you do need take the bull by the horns when rare investment opportunities arise. That means diving in and buying UK shares after stock market crashes. It’s a strategy that sets apart those who make modest investor returns from those who become stock market millionaires.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…Making millions from UK sharesThe FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have made no gains over the summer. The steady spread of Covid-19 and fears over fresh lockdown measures mean that dip buyers remain thin on the ground. Other fears, like US-led trade wars, Brexit and political uncertainty in Washington, are also hampering demand for UK shares.This lack of dip buying is a wasted opportunity for share investors to make serious money. It’s no coincidence that the number of ISA millionaires ballooned in the wake of the 2008/09 banking crisis. These individuals bought UK shares just after that stock market crash, and watched the value of their investments rocket as economic conditions improved and earnings rose.The FTSE 100 doubled in value in the decade following the sub-prime mortgage crisis in the US. Those who bought when the Footsie struck its lows of 3,500 points in February 2009, and then watched it surge to record tops of 7,550 points less than 10 years later, made an absolute killing. The 2020 stock market crash presents an opportunity for you and I to follow a similar path.You can get rich after the stock market crashThere’s plenty of economic, geopolitical and social uncertainty out there, sure. But stock investors can reduce the near-term risk to their share portfolios by following a few simple tips. Buying UK shares with strong balance sheets to help them survive a global recession, for example, is a good idea. So is picking stocks with competitive advantages (or ‘economic moats’) that will help them outlast their rivals. Examples of this include lower cost bases, better brand power or superior products.Stock market volatility is nothing new. And it’s nothing that should discourage long-term investors from continuing to buy UK shares. The evidence shows that those who buy shares with a view to holding them for five, 10, 20 years or more make a mighty average annual return of 8% to 10%. Compare that with the paltry returns offered by sub-1%-yielding Cash ISAs, for example.You can significantly improve your chances of hitting that magic 10% marker by buying after stock market crashes. There are plenty of high-quality UK shares trading too cheaply following recent panic-selling. By buying them today you watch them steadily climb in value during the recovery phase of the economic cycle. And you could possibly become a stock market millionaire in the process.

Enter Your Email Address Each morning I have a quick look to see which shares are moving. I rarely expect to see International Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG) leading the way. But that’s what happened Tuesday. As I write, the IAG share price is up 5%, heading the FTSE 100.It’s too early to tell whether this gain means anything significant, as the shares have still not regained the level they briefly reached on 8 October. But the freefall seems to have been brought to at least a pause. Investors may well be feeling more optimistic after the company’s successful capital raise. The new shares were admitted for trading on 6 October, and the IAG share price is up 15% since then.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…Now, let me just step back from these daily developments for a moment. The Foolish investment approach is to look at the long-term prospects for a struggling stock like International Consolidated Airlines. As such, what happens on a day-to-day basis is really of limited importance. I do think it can be fascinating following things as they unfold — though perhaps I’m easily entertained.The big pictureBut if you get too caught up in how the market is reacting from one moment to the next, and where the IAG share price is going day by day, you can miss the big picture. The market’s big institutional investors are the ones that drive short-term market movements, and you might think they’re the ones to take cues from. But time and time again when we look back with hindsight, we find that those same big investment firms perform poorly over the long term. The majority of fund managers over history fail to match the FTSE 100 index. So individual Foolish investors can typically beat them by just investing in an index tracker.Having said that, let’s get back to IAG. I’ve seen too many cases of companies in trouble raising capital through new share issues. And all too often it unfolds differently. We hear of a share issue, it gets off the ground successfully and the new shares commence trading. Yet within days, the share price resumes its downwards path. That the IAG share price has not done that is encouraging. At least, it hasn’t done it yet.IAG share price steadySo, should you buy the shares now or not? I really can see the attraction of buying now. I’m reasonably sure the owner of two national airlines will survive. Even if it came to a last resort, I think there’s too much at stake for the government to let it fail. In a few years’ time, I can see British Airways and Iberia very much back in the air. Perhaps not with the same volumes as before — we could be in for a decade or more of less flying.So what’s my problem? I’ve no idea how much more funding will be needed before we get back to seeing sustainable profits. That means I have no way to guess what dilution there might be, and who might own what proportion of the company when it’s back to health. And I think the IAG share price could still be facing more pain before profit. That’s why I’ll pass.

Even the internationally diverse FTSE 100 index has slumped as news flow from London and Brussels has disappointed market makers.British Prime Minister Boris Johnson took to the airwaves last night to laud the benefits of an ‘Australia-style’ deal (a no-deal Brexit in all but name). European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has reportedly informed EU leaders of a “higher probability for no deal than deal” in recent hours, too. It seems as if the ground is being prepped for a messy divorce.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…All this could prove to be bluster on both sides as negotiations come down to the wire. Regardless, UK share pickers need to seriously consider how to invest their cash should a no-deal Brexit indeed occur.Lloyds shares fall againBritain’s banks are leading the FTSE 100 lower in end-of-week trading. NatWest Group is the worst-performing of these shares on Friday and down more than 6% as we virtually go to print. Barclays is 3.3% lower, while the Lloyds share price has reversed in excess of 4% from Thursday’s close.It’s no surprise that these particular UK shares have tanked as signs of a Hard Brexit grow. Lloyds and NatWest source all but a fraction of profits directly from these shores. Okay, Barclays has exposure to the US to fall back on. But is still highly geared to the fortunes of the British economy.All three FTSE 100 stocks face a miserable time if British and EU negotiators fail to avert a cliff-edge exit on 1 January, then. The boffins at KPMG reckon UK GDP will rise just 4.4% in 2021 if a no-deal Brexit transpires. This compares with a rise of 10.1% were the UK and EU to maintain existing trade links.An economically painful Brexit is the last thing cyclical UK shares like Lloyds need given that a straightforward recovery from Covid-19 in 2021 isn’t exactly nailed down, either. And like the coronavirus, Brexit threatens to create significant economic trouble for Britain’s banks that could persist for years to come.Sticking with other UK sharesA knock-on effect of a damaging Brexit is that the Bank of England will probably need to step in again to keep the economy on life support. Interest rates are already at record lows of 0.1% following fresh cuts in 2020. They might even dip into negative territory before too long, as major Bank of England policymakers have been publicly suggesting.This provides another reason for Lloyds et al to worry. Low interest rates have taken a huge bite out of bank profits in the wake of the 2008–09 banking crisis. And things threaten to get worse on this front before they get better.For these reasons I’m not tempted by the low Lloyds share price or those of its peers. Sure, Lloyds and Barclays trade on rock-bottom forward price-to-earnings ratios around 10 times. But these valuations reflect the colossal risks facing each of these FTSE 100 companies. I’d rather use my hard-earned cash to buy other UK shares today. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more
