£10k to invest? Why I’d buy Lindsell Train Global Equity Fund and hold it for 20 years

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Tom Rodgers The Lindsell Train Global Equity Fund has been one of my strongest performers in 2019, and I think that will continue throughout the new decade and beyond.The fund has certainly benefited from its investments in Disney, which has seen a stellar second half of the year with the launch of the streaming service Disney+.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…Nick Train is a strong handEvery good fund needs a strong managing hand at the tiller – one who sticks to sound investing principles and doesn’t makes waves. For Fundsmith, it’s Terry Smith. For Lindsell Train, it’s Nick Train. Probably one of the best things about Nick’s investing strategy is that he relies on low turnover in and out of the Lindsell Train Global Equity Fund.This approach makes sense to me. if you believe in the long-term health of a business, it should continue to deliver for many, many years. It would take a fairly catastrophic event to see one of the stable multinational businesses drop out of Nick’s top-10 list in the fund.However, this normally quiet investment manager hit the headlines at the end of December because two of his popular funds – the £9.5 billion LF Lindsell Train UK Equity Fund and the Finsbury Growth & Income investment Trust – lost their gold star status with investment services company Morningstar over liquidity concerns.I think this shows that the market is desperate to avoid another Neil Woodford-style scandal, where a fund manager running rampant and largely unchecked by his investors was allowed to collect millions of pounds a month in fees even while his funds were vastly underperforming.I don’t think Nick Train is Neil Woodford. Far from it.Top 10I like the mix of UK, US, and Japanese firms in the Lindsell Train Global Equity Fund. Companies in these three countries make up 87% of the fund.Unilever is the largest holding, followed by drinks giant Diageo, then Heineken. The London Stock Exchange Group is fourth and Disney the fifth largest.Rounding out the top 10 are games manufacturer Nintendo, internet payment services provider Paypal, FTSE 100 scientific publisher Relx, NASDAQ-listed Quickbooks owner Intuit, and Japanese consumer chemicals company Kao Corporation.DiversificationThankfully, all of the UK and US companies listed deal internationally. So while 7% of the fund is in Dutch companies and 3% in Italian firms, there is a relatively small exposure to European stocks, which I like.The fund has a stake of around 9% in Unilever, which has seen an unusual share price dip in the latter half of 2019. This was based on a trading update that showed sales growth was predicted to be at the lower end of forecasts.I have suggested that if you are a value investor and want a stable FTSE 100 grower, then now is a good point to buy Unilever.A little of thisIn my opinion the Lindsell Train Global Equity Fund has the right mix of international companies and growing businesses with diversification across sectors to guard against a failure in any one area. Its analysts take the time to find the right companies that can remain in the fund for the long term with little churn or turnover. If I had £10,000 on hand then I would put it into this fund. £10k to invest? Why I’d buy Lindsell Train Global Equity Fund and hold it for 20 years Image source: Getty Images.

At the time of writing on Friday afternoon, the FTSE 100 is down by 12% in just five days. Ouch.My portfolio has taken a big hit. But situations like this are unavoidable from time to time. I believe that how you handle these events will make a big difference to your stock market profits.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…I haven’t sold anything and have been buying shares over the last week. Let me explain why.1. The world keeps turningI know a number of investors who have sold their entire portfolios. If you’re thinking about this, I think it’s important to ask yourself why. A lot of damage has already been done. Selling now crystallises those losses — but in a few weeks, shares might have started to rise again.You may be concerned about suffering a permanent loss of capital. But while I don’t want to be insensitive about a human tragedy, the reality is that the coronavirus outbreak will pass, perhaps within a few months.Events such as the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy (2008), the dotcom crash (2001) and Black Monday (1987) have always been accompanied by sharp falls. But the market has always recovered. Often quite quickly.If you’re investing with a long-term view — at least five years — I think it makes sense to ride out the storm.There are also practical problems with moving in and out of the market.2. Selling could be very expensiveIf you sell all your stocks, you’ll face three big costs. The first is the dealing fees. On a portfolio of 20 stocks, this might be about £200. You might think that’s a small price for safety. Perhaps it is — although you’ll have to pay the same again to buy back your stocks.The second cost is that you’ll miss out on any dividends paid while you’re out of the market. If you invest in big-cap dividend stocks like I do, this could be 2%-3% of your portfolio over a few months.Even that might be acceptable. But the biggest cost is the final one. You could miss out on the market recovery.History suggests that most big market movements take place on just a few days of the year. The FTSE 100 fell by nearly 5% on Friday. It wasn’t fun. But in a few days — or weeks — the market might rise by 5% in one day.By the time you’ve decided that the worst is over, your stocks might have risen sharply. There’s a real risk you could end up buying back your shares at a higher price than you sold them for. Even with a modestly-sized portfolio, that could cost you thousands.3. So many bargains…As a long-term income investor, I can see a lot of great buys at the moment. Good quality companies that are on sale for about 20% less than they were a month ago.If there was nothing wrong with these companies a month ago, then in my view there’s nothing much wrong with them now. Although the coronavirus might cause a hit to earnings, in my experience, good quality businesses will recover.Lower share prices mean higher dividend yields. By buying stocks more cheaply now, I expect to benefit from higher yields and bigger capital gains in the years to come. I think Warren Buffett would approve.

On the picket line: 11,500 teachers, staff win contracts at Oregon universities

first_img11,500 teachers, staff win contracts at Oregon universities Nearly 7,000 workers at Oregon Health and Science University won raises and other improvements when ratifying a new three-year contract by 98.9 percent on Sept. 9. Members of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 328 get a lump sum bonus payment of $1,000 and a raise of 3.25 percent now, plus an additional 3 percent on July 1 in 2020 and 2021. Workers also get 50 cents more an hour for weekend work and $1 more an hour for training co-workers. OHSU also agreed to a yearly contribution of $100,000 to an employee hardship fund managed by Local 328 that will provide relief for needed food, transportation, housing and education.Meanwhile, Local 328 has a legal case against OHSU: an unfair labor practice charge filed Aug. 8 with the Oregon Employment Relations Board. OHSU violated its duty to bargain in good faith when two members of its team used fake Twitter and Facebook accounts to pose as employees and undermine the union on social media. A hearing was scheduled for Oct. 1. (NW Labor Press, Sept. 18) Two days before a strike was to begin Sept. 30 at all seven public universities in the Oregon University System, Service Employees Union (SEIU) Local 503 announced a tentative agreement that covers about 4,500 university support workers — food preparation, grounds and building maintenance, custodial services, student registration and financial aid assistance, and tech support. The two-year contract includes a 3 percent raise retroactive to July 1 and a 2.1 percent raise on July 1, 2020. It gives an additional 2.5 percent increase on Nov. 1 to workers with at least five years seniority, who are at the top of the pay scale for their classification. Local 503 reported it’s the largest cost-of-living raise that university support workers have received in more than a decade. Not only did the university system back off on a proposal to increase workers’ contributions to health care, but it also dropped a proposal to charge low-paid University of Oregon food service workers more for their shift meals. And it agreed to allow 48 hours of paid leave if campuses are shut down because of inclement weather. (NW Labor Press, Oct. 2)California child care workers win union rights!Nearly 40,000 California at-home child care workers won the right to bargain collectively on Sept. 30, thanks to worker advocacy that pushed for union rights for 16 years. As it stands now, California child care workers earn poverty wages and no benefits.The “Building a Better Early Care and Education System Act” was co-sponsored by two unions: the Service Employees union (SEIU) California and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. Workers won the ability to unionize and bargain collectively with the state Department of Human Resources. That gives child-care providers the ability to organize for improvements on the job, while setting the stage for the largest union election and organizing campaign in the country for better wages and benefits, retirement planning and training. The bill empowers the unions to contact workers around the state so they can attend worker orientation meetings. (Sacramento Bee, Sept. 30)Assemblymember Monique Límon, who authored the bill, says the victory is “especially [for] women, who are the great majority of the child care workforce in our state.” (Asian Journal, Oct. 4) California becomes the 12th state where child care workers can unionize when the law takes effect Jan. 1, 2020! Low-wage worker summit pushes to #OrganizeTheSouthOver 120 low-wage workers converged in Durham, N.C., on Sept. 14 to organize and unite the working-class movement. The Worker Power Summit was hosted by NC Raise Up/Fight For $15 as part of its seven-year organizing effort. It featured workshops on the connections among poverty wages, racism and the history of union suppression in the South. (WITN.com, Sept. 14) Writing in Facing South magazine, Rebekah Barber witnessed how attendees made it clear it’s “not by accident that the country’s poorest region is also where states have historically made it hard to organize and collectively bargain.” (Sept. 19)Some attendees reported how bosses keep people of different races separated at work to discourage racial solidarity. Keynote speaker MaryBe McMillan of the N.C. AFL-CIO raised how systemic change in the U.S. won’t come from Trump or any person vying to be president. It will come through “uniting and building a bigger, bolder labor movement.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU students embarked on Brazos River camping trip

The route doesn’t change because you’re tired.”Five student campers led by two student leaders in the Outdoor Program canoed 20 miles over two days and slept outdoors. The leaders provided the canoes, camping supplies, food, cookware and transportation.Potter said the trip provided plenty of opportunities for relaxation and self-reflection.“It’s pretty much you and the river out in nature,” Potter said. “The scenery is pretty wild.”Experience is always helpful, but none is necessary, especially since the water is calm, said Bailey Stover, a leader on the trip.“The good thing about this trip is it’s a really gentle trip, and canoeing 10 miles a day isn’t too bad,” Stover said. “So anybody that doesn’t have a ton of experience, but wants to get outside more, it’s great for them.” TCU students embarked on a camping trip to the Brazos River last weekend, Sept. 26-27.
