With a new tax year upon us, a whole new ISA allowance starts once more. I think investing a Stocks and Shares ISA in the right way can help turn it into a powerful passive income machine over the long term.

With no savings, I’d follow Warren Buffett’s number one rule to build wealth
The Motley Fool UK
by Christopher Ruane

The idea of building wealth can seem like a bad joke without any savings to invest. But lots of successful investors have started from scratch by putting aside a small amount regularly to buy their first shares. Indeed that is how billionaire investor Warren Buffett got his start in the stock market. If I had no investments or even savings, I would follow Buffett’s “number one rule” to try and build wealth. Getting ready to start investing First things first. With no savings, how could I invest at all? My answer would be to start drip feeding money into an investment account I could then use ..read more

A second income of £1k a month from just £10 a day! How would I do that?
The Motley Fool UK
by Mark David Hartley
5h ago
A second income can be crucial in times of crisis – a lost job, mortgage rate hikes, or a medical emergency. The list goes on. Building another income stream can seem daunting, but it needn’t be the case. One possibility I’ve found is investing in high-yield dividend shares and harnessing the power of compound returns. Starting with just £10 a day, I believe a £1,000 a month is possible. Here’s how. Potential returns from dividend shares Dividends are a small reward that some companies pay their shareholders annually. A dividend yield represents the percentage that shareholders receive per sh ..read more

The FTSE 100‘s a great place for investors to find top-quality income shares. Here are four high-dividend stocks I think are worth a close look today. Taylor Wimpey The housing market isn’t out of the woods just yet. But a steady stream of upbeat industry news suggests homebuyer demand is back in recovery mode. Purchasing Taylor Wimpey (LSE:TW.) shares to capitalise on this could be a sound idea. Today, its forward dividend yield sits at a gigantic 7.1%. Latest data from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) underlines the sector’s positive momentum. It shows new buyer enquiries r ..read more

The Aviva dividend yield’s already over 7%. Could it go higher?
The Motley Fool UK
by Christopher Ruane
12h ago
There can be something pleasing about owning a stake in a large, successful company that also has a juicy dividend. Take FTSE 100 insurer Aviva (LSE: AV) as an example. Despite the Aviva dividend being cut several years ago, the shares still yield 7.3%. How secure is the dividend – and could it go higher from here? Dividend rises on the cards No dividend is ever guaranteed and a quick look at the Aviva dividend history makes this clear. It has been cut before in recent years – and it could be cut again. On the other hand though, it may also increase. Last year saw the annual dividend hit 33.4 ..read more

2 shares I’d buy to try and double my money in 10 years
The Motley Fool UK
by Stephen Wright
13h ago
I think right now’s a great time to buy shares. Interest rates look set to fall this year and I expect this to send share prices higher.  As a result, I’m looking to make the most of opportunities while they’re still there. And that applies to dividend shares as well as growth stocks. 100% returns Doubling an investment over 10 years implies an average return of 7% a year. That’s slightly above the long-term average for the FTSE 100. At the moment, I’m optimistic this is a realistic possibility. With interest rates still at their highest levels for over a decade, I think share prices are ..read more

NIO stock has crashed! Here’s why I still wouldn’t touch it with a bargepole
The Motley Fool UK
by Alan Oscroft
13h ago
Growth stock crashes rarely come harder than we’ve seen from electric vehicle (EV) maker NIO (NYSE: NIO) in the past few years. From a high in November 2021, the NIO stock price has fallen by a whopping 93%. That’s not as bad as our very own Aston Martin Lagonda mind, down 96% since IPO. Coincidentally, it’s also a car maker. And it’s moving into electric vehicles too. Bubble burst? I’ve seen this kind of thing many times over the decades. A growth stock darling catches the imagination, and investors pile in and push the stock price up. Then the market steps back and does a reality check. Ca ..read more

Why have Rolls-Royce shares fallen this week?
The Motley Fool UK
by Dr. James Fox
13h ago
Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) shares are up 178.5% over 12 months, but down 3.1% over the past week. Of course, it’s not unusual for stocks, even those on incredible bull runs, to pull back. But this was different. Rolls fell from 432p per share to 398p. That’s quite the dip. Let’s take a closer look. Defence pull back Shares in defence stocks fell the week beginning 8 April as analysts suggested that the sector could be getting a little crowded — too many investors taking the same strategy. European defence stocks have done something almost unimaginable over the past two years, and that’s closing th ..read more

How I’d invest £10,000 in a Stocks & Shares ISA and aim for a £45,500 second income
The Motley Fool UK
by Dr. James Fox
14h ago
We’d all love a second income, but many of us just don’t know how to earn one. And it’s certainly not easy to see the wood for the trees these days with thousands of get-rich-quick schemes and free trading programmes claiming “Scott from Manchester made £25,000 in a month“. For the record, I don’t doubt that trading programmes can be viable, and I do trade myself. But these are inherently risky activities, and I’d only put a fraction of my money behind them. Instead, I make educated investments into stocks and shares, taking long-term positions based on solid fundamental analysis. So, how cou ..read more
