Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 26th January, 2020 The State Pension is currently less than £9,000 a year. Surveys suggest that most retired people struggle to live off this meager income. As such, future retirees would benefit from setting aside their own pension savings.This might seem like a daunting prospect but, in reality, just £2 a day could help you beat the State Pension. 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…SIPP contributionsA daily contribution of £2 might not seem like a lot at first. After all, most people wouldn’t think twice about spending more than this on a coffee every day. However, over the long term, these simple contributions can add up. Indeed, saving £2 a day will give a total contribution of £730 a year. This could become £913 a year, including tax relief available on self-invested personal pension (SIPP) contributions.Any money deposited in a SIPP is entitled to tax relief at a marginal rate. That’s 20% for basic rate taxpayers. Higher and additional rate taxpayers can claim relief at 40% and 45% respectively on their self-assessment. Tax relief is limited to a total of £40,000 a year. This makes a SIPP an essential tool for pension savers who want to get the most bang for their buck. Invest for the futureOnce you’ve opened a SIPP, the next stage is to start investing for the future. The best way to do this is to use a low-cost passive tracker fund.For UK investors, the best indexes to track are the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. Because these are the most significant stock indexes for UK investors, there’s a range of low-cost funds investors can use to track the indexes with no extra effort required. Since its inception, the FTSE 100 has produced an average annual return for investors in the region of 7%. The FTSE 250, on the other hand, has returned around 12%. This seems to suggest the latter could give you the best returns on your investment. That said, as the FTSE 250 has more exposure to the UK economy, it’s difficult to predict which direction it will move in the near term. However, over the long run, it seems reasonable to suggest UK-based companies should continue to grow. Also, most of the FTSE 250’s constituents have some international exposure, which will act as a hedge against Brexit uncertainty.Growing nest eggA deposit of £2 a day would be worth £76 a month, including tax relief on pension contributions. These relatively small daily contributions could grow to be worth £250,000 after 30 years. That’s assuming the money is invested in the FTSE 250. This savings nest egg could produce an annual income of £10,750, based on the fact that the FTSE 100 currently supports a dividend yield of 4.3%. Therefore, by using the FTSE 250 to accumulate a sizable savings pot, and then switching this holding into the FTSE 100 at the time of retirement, it’s possible to beat the State Pension with just £2 a day.

But it’s not the only growth stock I have my eye on… One FTSE “Snowball Stock” With Runaway Revenues Looking for new share ideas?Grab this FREE report now.Inside, you discover one FTSE company with a runaway snowball of profits.From 2015-2019…Revenues increased 38.6%.Its net income went up 19.7 times!Since 2012, revenues from regular users have almost DOUBLEDThe opportunity here really is astounding.In fact, one of its own board members recently snapped up 25,000 shares using their own money… So why sit on the side lines a minute longer?You could have the full details on this company right now. The Oxford Biomedica (LSE:OXB) share price reached its highest point in over a decade this month. Like many other biotech companies, the group quickly shifted its focus to help tackle the worsening pandemic. And consequently, the firm landed one of its most lucrative partnerships to date – the manufacture of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine.This deal seems to have been one of the primary drivers behind Oxford Biomedica’s rapidly rising share price in 2020 that helped push it from 673p to 1,000p by the end of the year. This growth has continued since, and over the last 12 months, the stock is up more than 60%. But is this momentum about to accelerate?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… See all posts by Zaven Boyrazian Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

Enter Your Email Address Guidance gets vaccinatedI’ve previously explored Oxford Biomedica and its partnership with AstraZeneca. But as a quick reminder, the company is a small biotech group that has developed a proprietary drug development platform called LentiVector. This technology is ultimately what landed it with an 18-month vaccine manufacturing deal with AstraZeneca as it significantly reduces the hefty development costs of new medicines.The original contract was expected to generate around £50m of additional revenue for the business. However, last month, the management team made an announcement that saw the Oxford Biomedica share price jump by double-digits within a day. Following the successful production achievements so far, AstraZeneca has agreed to increase the number of vaccine batches that Oxford Biomedica must deliver in the second half of 2021. In other words, the order sizes, and therefore income, from this deal just increased.It’s not clear as to the exact value of the income this newly reformed agreement will generate. However, revenue guidance was raised from £50m to over £100m from this contract alone. Combining this with the income being generated from the vast collection of other products being developed on LentiVector, I believe 2021 will be a transformative year for Oxford Biomedica and its share price.The Oxford Biomedica share price has its risksAs promising as this progress is, there are still several risks that this business faces. The most prominent of which is long-term revenue generation. The deal signed with AstraZeneca has a maximum term period of three years. In other words, it may not be a sustainable source of long-term income. This is particularly troubling given how dominant this partnership has become in the overall revenue stream for Oxford Biomedica.The cash flows generated from this deal certainly provide a large amount of capital for reinvestment. Improvements to LentiVector may, in turn, attract additional customers that can replace the eventual loss of revenue. However, whether this can be achieved before its vaccine contract expires remains to be seen.Needless to say, if investors see a sudden decline in Oxford Biomedica’s gross income, then I think the share price could begin to experience some significant volatility. After all, it looks like a lot of the firm’s valuation is being driven by future expectations.The bottom lineI’ve been an investor in Oxford Biomedica for several years now. My original investment thesis surrounded the potential of the LentiVector platform. Personally, I still believe that potential remains substantial, even after the AstraZeneca contract expires. Therefore, despite the risks, I’m cautiously optimistic that the Oxford Biomedica share price will continue to climb over the long term. Will the Oxford Biomedica share price keep on climbing?

The project is a collection of new ‘agricultural’ style buildings at the threshold between the formal garden of the main house and meadow beyond in a small Northamptonshire village.Save this picture!Site Plan 2The brief asked for the demolition of an existing garage, a garden store and the remains of an old piggery. In their place our clients asked for a ‘Studio’ building’ with catering facilities and a bathroom, where our clients might ‘go away’ for the weekend, a garden storage building with room for an office at one end, a carport and a greenhouse.Save this picture!© Justin Paget PhotographyTaking the original piggery walls as a cue, we created a series of new walls of various heights and orientations in the local coursed limestone from which the main house is constructed and that is so prevalent in Warmington and other Northamptonshire villages.Save this picture!© Justin Paget PhotographyThe new buildings emerge from, sail over or hang off these walls. Using a limited palette of unadorned ‘agricultural’ materials in a variety of different ways, sawn larch timber, (vertical random width cladding, oversized shingles and framing to the carport planted roof) corrugated aluminium and Cor10 steel, we have tried to create a relaxed informality between the buildings as if they have accreted themselves into the site and onto the walls over a period of time as needs required.Save this picture!© Justin Paget PhotographySave this picture!Studio SectionInternally in the studio we have repeated the random width vertical cladding on the outside, though this time it is planed and treated with a lye and a wax finish to maintain its’ colour.

County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer once again offered condolences to those mourning the loss of loved ones to the pandemic.“As we mark this heartbreaking day and note with sadness the loss of over 20,000 County residents, we mourn with all of you who have lost someone you love to COVID-19,” Ferrer said. “We are deeply sorry for your loss, and wish you healing and peace.”In Pasadena, public health officials added two more deaths to the city’s list of fatalities on Tuesday, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said. One involved a resident of a long-term care facility, while the other involved a person living in the general community.Twenty-two new infections brought the city’s total number of infections since the start of the pandemic to 10,805. The city’s pandemic death toll stood at 309.A shipment of vaccinations that had been expected to arrive in Pasadena last week, but was delayed due to severe storms across the country, was received on Tuesday, according to Derderian.Huntington Hospital officials reported treating 54 COVID-19 patients on Tuesday, with 12 of them being cared for in the intensive care unit.At the county-level, officials reported 2,146 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 throughout the county on Tuesday, with 31% of them being treated in ICUs.L.A. County remained in the state’s most restrictive tier under the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” with a test positivity rate of 12.3 new cases per 100,000 people and a test positivity rate of 5.1%, officials said.“In order to move into the red tier and have additional opportunities for re-openings, L.A. County’s daily case rate must be at or below 7 new cases per 100,00 people and the county’s test positivity rate must be at or below 8%,” the L.A. County Department of Public Health said in a written statement.Ferrer urged the public to continue following social distancing protocols, especially when returning to workplace or school settings.“As more and more of our county residents return to businesses and school, it’s important to remember that the actions we all take today will affect the numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths several weeks from now. As we continue to bear witness to the devastating loss of life from COVID-19, we ask that everyone continue to use the tools we know work to slow the spread of the virus: wear a mask and keep 6 feet of distance anytime you are around others not in your household,” Ferrer said.“This virus is still easily transmitted among people in contact with each other and we must do all we can to continue the momentum of the decreases we are seeing [in] cases, hospitalizations and deaths,” she said.State public health officials announced 3,447 new COVID-19 infections and 225 additional fatalities on Tuesday, raising the statewide totals to 3,450,058 known cases of the virus and 49,563 deaths.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week was recorded at 3.3%, according to the California Department of Public Health.As of Tuesday, L.A.
