Oil, Markets, Brexit: Now is the time to get things right

Several companies have been bidding to buy other companies and have even had generous offers turned down.  Premier foods are a good example of this; its share price spiked 50% to 46p from 31p after a second offer of 60p per share was turned down to buy the company outright.  Many companies are cash rich at the moment and more expansion and takeover bids can be expected. The FTSE has also moved to over 6150 since dipping below 5800 during the last couple of months. Dividends continue to increase generally; this may have been just a sweetener for investors as their holdings have fallen in value, but if recovery does continue to happen, watch out for some spectacular returns.

Brexit speculation will continue to dampen in the short term but indicators are looking very good for the summer. Shrewd investors looking to spread and diversify their investments among strong companies with high dividends or funds that specialise in this type of company share could really provide good value for the investor at long last.

When looking at what interest rates are giving at the moment, now might be the time to sit down and review your investment and savings and even view the markets with some optimism as the potential upside is huge.  Just think, if oil continues its upward surge along with the markets and a Brexit does not occur you might be kicking yourself in July for not reviewing things now.

In today’s financial climate it is essential you do everything you can to make sure your money is safe and secure to ensure you achieve your financial aspirations for the future.

Expats Mount Fresh Referendum Challenge

EU FlagBritish expats in Spain, France, and Italy are behind a legal challenge submitted to the High Court in London calling on the result of the 2016 referendum to be invalidated.

Those behind the legal action argue that the outcome should not stand as it has now been proven that the Leave campaign broke the Electoral Commission’s rules on campaign spending.

The “UK in EU Challenge” group states its belief that two major campaign groups — BeLeave and Vote Leave – conducted their campaigns unlawfully, preventing the possibility of a free and fair vote.
