  19. What is the ‘Bed and Spouse’ tax strategy? (11/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    If you are married or in a civil partnership, the ‘bed and spouse’ strategy can help you minimise your Capital Gains Tax bill on assets that you eventually plan to dispose of. Here’s everything you need to know about this useful tax planning strategy. Capital Gains Tax (CGT) In the UK, gains that arise when you dispose of assets that have increased in value are liable to CGT. To ‘dispose of’ means to sell, exchange, transfer or give away. You don’t pay Capital Gains Tax if all of your gains in a year are under your tax-free personal allowance. For the 2020/2021 tax year, the personal allowance is £12,500. Any gains in excess of this annual allowance will be liable to a CGT of between 10% and 20% depending on your income tax band. A number of assets, such as your car and your main home are exempt from CGT. Background of the ‘bed and spouse’ strategy Until 1998, you could use up some of your CGT allowance by selling an asset you owned to realise a capital gain and then buying the same investment back the next day. This technique was called the ‘bed and breakfast’ strategy. People would typically benefit from it by selling an asset on the last day of the tax year and then buying it back the following morning. Doing so would effectively reset the cost base of the asset. That, in turn, would reduce the rate at which CGT was building up as the asset continued to increase in value. Nowadays, you must wait at least 30 days before you can buy the same investment again to have the desired effect of crystallising the CGT gain (turning it into profits). The risk of waiting for 30 days to reacquire assets or investments such as shares after selling is that the market could move against you as you wait. That’s where the ‘bed and spouse’ strategy comes in. The ‘bed and spouse’ strategy explained Under the ‘bed and spouse’ strategy, you can sell an asset or investment to crystallise a capital gain. Your spouse or partner can then buy it back immediately and transfers it back to you. So basically, you crystallise a capital gain while still retaining ownership of the asset or investment. When the time comes to permanently dispose of the asset or investment, the Capital Gains Tax liability will be lower. That’s because the cost base was adjusted by selling and then immediately buying back the asset or investment.  One thing worth noting, however, is that you cannot directly sell the asset or investment to your spouse. The two transactions have to be separate. When can you use the ‘bed and spouse’ strategy? The strategy can be used for CGT planning on investments that typically rise in value over the long term. A good example is stocks or shares. Through the strategy, you can crystallise the gains on your stocks or shares every tax year. This adjusts the cost base and reduces the rate at which the CGT due is building up. More useful information The main purpose of the ‘bed and spouse’ strategy is to retain ownership of an asset while mitigating CGT on ultimate disposal. If you intend to dispose of an asset immediately while reducing the CGT liable, transferring a part of it to your spouse might be a more helpful strategy. Transfers between spouses are currently exempt from CGT. By transferring some of your assets to a spouse before selling, you can effectively double your CGT allowance and reduce the total amount of CGT liable after the sale. It’s worth mentioning that gains from investments within an ISA are also free from CGT. So if you are, for example, thinking of investing in the stock market, consider doing it within a stocks and shares ISA to keep any potential gains from the taxman. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.

  42. This UK growth share hit a new high yesterday (03/08/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    While the overall market picture may have been mixed in recent weeks, some shares are on fire. One of them is a UK growth share that has almost doubled in the past year, adding 93% to its price. Its share price hit a new all-time high in yesterday’s trading session. But I would still consider buying more of it today. Here’s why. Strong growth ambition The company in question is digital marketing network S4 Capital (LSE: SFOR), which owns agencies such as MediaMonks and MightyHive. The London-based group has been able to build up a roster of clients in the US, while expanding its global reach through a series of acquisitions. Last week, for example, it announced that it is combining with Australian-based agency Destined. S4 Capital is a digital-only agency involved in the production and placement of marketing. That is a growing business as ad spending continues to move online from traditional channels such as print and TV. But the company’s growth surpasses that of the digital marketing space overall. That reflects its sharp focus, experienced management and ambitious growth plans. It is targeting 30% organic revenue and profit growth this year. That is before adding growth from acquisitions. Is S4 Capital a UK growth share to buy? The market has noticed the strong growth story at S4, which helps explain why its share price has performed so well. Still, I continue to see it as a growth share to buy. Here are three reasons why. First, the company’s talent pool is strong. Founder Sir Martin Sorrell built up WPP and he has been using a similar playbook at S4. But there is a lot more talent in this company of almost 6,000 staff than just Sir Martin. That bodes well for S4’s ability to win, service and retain client accounts. Secondly, the digital focus means that unlike some traditional advertising agency holding groups, S4 Capital is focused squarely on high-growth-potential areas. Not only can that help revenue growth, it should also allow the company to choose profitable areas in which to work. Thirdly, the company can continue growing through acquisitions. It announced last month that it has tapped the debt markets to increase its financial firepower. That should help fund mergers that can boost organic growth rates. UK growth share risks Moving fast can always accelerate success – but it also risks exacerbating mistakes. One risk with S4 Capital is that its breakneck increase in size could lead to inconsistent output quality. If that happens, it could hurt revenues. The company is also heavily exposed to the tech sector. While I think its client list of tech giants is a sign of S4 Capital’s professional appeal, it also means that any downturn in the tech sector could hurt S4 Capital revenues. Overall, I see S4 Capital as one of the growth shares to buy more of today for my portfolio. Since I picked it last December as my top share for 2021, it has added 37%. Even as the S4 Capital share price continues to move to new territory, I remain bullish. The post This UK growth share hit a new high yesterday appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  45. What is a ‘stonk’ tip? (03/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    If you’re wondering what a ‘stonk’ tip is, I’m going to breakdown everything you need to know. They’ve become somewhat of an internet sensation. Here’s where the word came from and what it means. What is a ‘stonk’? A ‘stonk’ is the deliberate misspelling of the word ‘stock’. It’s not exactly highbrow humour, but that’s the point. Some retail traders on forums like Reddit pride themselves on not being super smart, owning their shortcomings and not pretending to be hot-shot investors. The word itself gathered mainstream attention back in January when Elon Musk sent out the tweet “Gamestonk!!” during the escalation of the GameStop saga. It’s quite amazing that as one of the world’s richest people, Musk still finds time to be an internet troll! Where did the word ‘stonk’ come from? The word’s first use was on Facebook meme pages a few years ago. Its recent explosion has seen it become somewhat of a worldwide trend. As a deliberate misspelling, the purpose is to just poke fun. People either use the word to make fun of their own financial incompetence or to laugh at others who think they’re good with money. Much like the deliberately misspelt ‘hodl’ has become standard language in the cryptocurrency community, ‘stonk’ is becoming a staple amongst internet retail investors. Why have ‘stonk’ tips become popular? A ‘stonk’ tip is just internet slang for a stock tip. With the massive boom and mobilising of retail investors, this term can highlight ironically bad investments. As we’ve seen, an investment might not be good by traditional standards but with enough public backing, a poor stock can perform quite well in the short term. Bringing some humour into the world of investing is admirable. But it’s important to know that many ‘stonk’ tips are ironic. Be very wary about getting your investing tips from social media and places like TikTok. The joke doesn’t seem so funny if you end up losing lots of money following bad investment advice. Where can I find some real stock tips? If you’re looking for some investing guidance that isn’t just a joke, we have plenty of resources here at MyWalletHero and over on The Motley Fool. For someone just starting out, it may seem like a good idea to follow other people’s advice. However, if you’re learning, you may be better off using something like an investing solution platform where professionals can select your investments for you. Alternatively, a cheap share dealing account is useful if you’re set on picking your own ‘stonks’. This way you can start off with smaller investments while you’re learning about the market.  It’s great that more people are showing an interest in investing. Being unafraid to make small mistakes can be a good way to learn and is better than being too scared to begin your journey as an investor. Just be sure to remember that you don’t want to end up being the butt of the joke. You’ll be the one laughing in the end if you become a proper investor and not a ‘stonk’ trend follower. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.

  46. What does ‘mooning’ mean in cryptocurrency? (26/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    With Bitcoin ‘mining’ and Chia ‘farming’, cryptocurrency terms can be baffling to say the least. You might also hear about crypto ‘going to the moon’ or that the price of something is ‘mooning’. But what on earth does it mean? Let’s find out. [top_pitch] What does it mean when cryptocurrency is ‘mooning’? The good news is that mooning in cryptocurrency has nothing to do with seeing anyone’s peachy bottom. It’s actually a verb that describes the rising price of a cryptocurrency. More specifically, when a cryptocurrency is mooning, it means its price is skyrocketing – literally heading to the moon. Like other verbs, ‘to moon’ can be conjugated in all sorts of other ways and can apply to any type of cryptocurrency. Examples of phrases you might stumble across include: “Bitcoin is going to the moon” (the price of Bitcoin is soaring) “When moon?” (when is the best time to sell the crypto I have before prices start to fall) “Prices are mooning” (prices are going through the roof) Where does ‘going to the moon’ come from? As it is with slang, it’s not always clear exactly how words or phrases come to mean specific things. The general consensus about cryptocurrency going to the moon is that it refers to 2017 when the price of Bitcoin hit unprecedented highs.  Up until then, the price of Bitcoin (the very first cryptocurrency) wasn’t anything to shout about. After all, at its launch in 2009, it was literally worthless. When it started trading in 2010, it was initially valued at a fraction of a penny (a teeny, tiny fraction).   Over the years, its value has fluctuated. Then, in 2017, something extraordinary happened and the price of Bitcoin started to rise exponentially. By December that year, one Bitcoin was worth just shy of $20,000 (around £14,100 at today’s exchange).  Naturally, Bitcoin investors watched in delight as Bitcoin started soaring, as if ‘to the moon’.  [middle_pitch] Is Bitcoin still mooning? At the time of writing, one Bitcoin is worth just over £26,000. Earlier this year in April, the price rose to £43,680. These big changes illustrate just how volatile cryptocurrencies can be. Unless you have a crystal ball, there’s simply no way of accurately predicting what will happen next.  Despite its volatility, it’s spawned an entirely new lexicon which is utterly fascinating. For example, every italicised word in this sentence is a specific crypto slang term: Prices can be rekt, and if a whale comes along and chooses to pump and dump, you could quite easily become a bagholder.  What does it all mean? Well, that’s for another time.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

  47. What are penny stocks? (10/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    All British stocks have to be made up of pennies, right? They have a monetary value, after all.  Even the London Stock Exchange Group‘s share price – one of the highest in the FTSE 100 according to, well, the London Stock Exchange – is made up of pennies (just under eight thousand of them at the time of writing). But this isn’t classified as a penny stock (or penny share). [top_pitch] What exactly are penny stocks? The difference between penny stocks and penny shares comes down to semantics. And perhaps geography! But essentially, if a listed company’s shares trade for less than US$5 then it’s regarded as a penny stock. And over on this side of the pond, if an equity’s share price sits under £1, it can be deemed a penny share. Don’t worry about the ever-changing value of currency – this definition is well set! As I write, the high-street chain and household name Lloyds Banking Group‘s shares are valued at around 40p each. So, despite having a market cap of almost £30 billion, it falls into the category of a penny share! (And since ‘stocks’ and ‘shares’ tend to be interchangeable in today’s investing language, you’re unlikely to get picked up on if you call Lloyds a penny stock.) [middle_pitch] Can you get rich from penny shares? Possibly. But you can also ‘get poor’, too. There’s a stigma around the term, and this comes from the fact that they are frequently traded. (I’ll repeat: traded, rather than invested in.) Because many can be bought in large quantities due to their seemingly cheap individual price, they are seen as more accessible to day-traders (as opposed to shares in Amazon, for example, which are currently available for around £2,200 each!).  This causes share-price volatility, and often wild swings in value on a day-to-day basis. So a beginner might be ‘up’ on their investment one day, and ‘down’ the next. A lot of the time, shareholders of penny stocks are at the mercy of other investors’ actions – rather than the market largely reacting to the company’s prospects. That’s not to say all penny shares will turn out to be bad investments, of course. Looking at ASOS, its share began life with a price of a little under 25p each. These days, they’re worth over £50 per share! If you’re new to investing, then do take a look at our list of top share-trading accounts for beginners.

    Whenever I’ve covered the [email protected] Capital (LSE: SYME) share price, I’ve always been impressed by the company’s development and potential.

The gross origination of client companies increased 13% between December 2020 and the end of March, to €2.4bn. It now has a total of 187 client companies. Acquisitions to boost growth  To help increase growth, [email protected] has been acquiring other businesses in the sector. Towards the beginning of the year, it set about acquiring a “complementary inventory in-transit business“. According to management, this will help the group achieve its goal of being a leading global inventory monetisation platform.  At the same time, the group has agreed to a captive funding route with an Italian banking group, which hasn’t yet been named. It has also agreed to acquire 10% of a fintech bank, the name of which also hasn’t been disclosed.  This strategy will enable the company to use bank deposits to fund its lending, subject to regulations. In theory, with access to this additional funding, the firm should be able to accelerate its growth and lending prospects.  All of the above suggests to me the group is firing on all cylinders. As such, while the [email protected] Capital share price has been under pressure recently, I think its fundamentals are improving. This bodes well for future share price potential. A company’s share price should track its underlying business performance over the long run. Therefore, as [email protected] continues to build up its lending network and relationships in the financial services industry, I think its stock price should reflect its improved outlook.  That said, while the company has made tremendous progress over the past two years, it’s still a small enterprise. At the time of writing, the share price has a market capitalisation of £121m. The stock price of 0.38p also means this business is a penny stock.  [email protected] Capital share price outlook  Due to the size, this company might not be suitable for all investors. Smaller businesses can find it harder to attract talent and financing, which may impede growth. What’s more, the financial services sector is highly regulated. If [email protected] falls foul of regulators, its growth could collapse overnight. These are the primary risks the enterprise faces today.  Despite these risks, I’m encouraged by the company’s growth over the past two years. As such, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today as a speculative investment. If the group’s underlying growth continues, I reckon the [email protected] Capital share price has a bright future. That’s assuming none of the risks above materialise.  The post What’s next for the [email protected] Capital share price? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  49. How I’d invest £1,000 in top dividend stocks (20/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    There are plenty of different ways that I could choose to put a spare £1,000 to work. Some investments would offer me a focus on capital appreciation, or capital preservation. In some ways, I might like to try and simply beat the rate of inflation. But what about if I want to target income accumulation? In this case, I’d look to invest in top dividend stocks. Here’s how I’d do it. Starting at the end To begin with, I’d want to actually look at my end goal. This might seem to be the wrong way around of looking at things, but bear with me. My end goal for my £1,000 could be to build up the income and reinvest it to a target of £2,000. Or it might be to make the money sweat enough to generate me £50 a month in passive income.  Depending on what my goal is, will impact how I go about making the investment.  Once I’ve got my goal figured out, I then need to think about how I can get to it. For example, if my goal is to reach £100 a year in passive income, then I know I’ve got to somehow get a 10% dividend yield across the companies I invest in. By thinking about the numbers, it can help me to figure out quickly whether my goal is too ambitious or achievable. Looking at specific top dividend stocks After I’ve made the numbers add up, I then want to drill down into the specific companies I’m going to invest in. This is an important step as I’ll likely have various top dividend stocks to choose from. For example, let’s say I need to achieve a 4% dividend yield for the next decade. There are currently 22 different FTSE 100 stocks that I could pick that fit the description. From the 22, I want to look at what specifically makes one a top dividend stock. The yield is one element, but other important factors include the dividend cover and the dividend outlook. After all, the dividend yield is a backward-looking number generated from the last dividend that was paid out.  In this way, I can hopefully prevent (or at least minimise) some downside risk. This risk would be that the dividend stocks I invest in cut the payment in the future. This would reduce my passive income and hinder my pursuit of reaching my goal. Buy and hold Once I’ve picked the selection of dividend stocks that I want to invest in, I’m almost finished. I’d decide whether I wanted to split my £1,000 evenly into the different stocks, or rather increase my allocation to a particular share for some reason.  From there, I’d buy the stocks and wait for the next dividend payment date to receive my first income amount, while also accepting that dividend income isn’t guaranteed.
