3 investing lessons from 2020 to help investors make better returns in 2021

Andy Ross | Tuesday, 5th January, 2021 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. While some private investors had an amazing 2020, many had a less happy time. But it’s in difficult times that you tend to learn the most. These are the investing lessons from 2020 that I’ll remember. First, it’s worth saying that better times could be ahead. There’s increasing hope of the vaccine rollout leading to fewer restrictions by the second half of 2021. So there could be plenty of recovery potential in the stock market this year. But it’s still worth trying to extract lessons from 2020, which was, without doubt, a challenging year. 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…Lesson from 2020 #1 – Be prepared to adaptOne of the big lessons for me was to adapt my investing style. Before March 2020 I was an income investor, heavily focused on a Buffett-style value approach to investing. The theory was dividends would compound and could be reinvested in buying more shares. As dividends were suspended in response to Covid, this strategy no longer stacked up – at least in the short term.It highlighted the need to adapt in strange, testing circumstances. Being stubborn and holding on to a strategy that isn’t working is good for the ego, but bad for profits. I included (for the first time in many years) growth shares such as Team17 in my portfolio. This certainly helped the portfolio by the end of the year.Lesson #2 – React quickly or don’t panic!When markets plunge, as they did back in March, you really only have two good options. Panic quickly and sell, then buy back in as markets recover, or wait it out. Once the market has already plunged, selling is the worst of all worlds. Markets always bounce back eventually. The UK markets made a good attempt at bouncing back through the second half of 2020 and there were profits to be made for those investors who had cash to buy cheap shares.Lesson #3 – Always have an emergency fundThe saying goes that ‘cash is king’. Having money not invested in a crisis allows you to buy shares as the market recovers – as I did. The aim of any investor is to buy low and sell high. Having cash to take advantage of special opportunities is a good way to achieve this. If the worst comes to the worst and you lose your job, or circumstances change, especially if all this comes alongside heavy short-term investment losses, cash allows you to stay on your feet.Conventional wisdom is to have an emergency fund equivalent to six months’ salary. But an individual’s risk appetite will dictate to some extent how much cash they keep. I’d suggest having at least three months set aside. After all, the future is uncertain.2020 was in many ways a year to forget. On the upside, for investors willing to learn, there were many investing lessons from 2020 too. They could help us all to be more successful investors in 2021. 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.

On the picket line

first_imgVW workers not fooled by bosses’ pseudo-union planWorkers in VW plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., in July 2012.After narrowly losing a union election in the Chattanooga, Tenn., Volkswagen assembly plant in early 2014, United Auto Workers organizers now say a majority of workers have signed union cards. Accordingly, plant management has agreed to grant UAW members meetings with company executives and space for organizing meetings on factory property. Conspicuously absent from the agreement, however, is UAW’s right to collectively bargain on behalf of the workers. Meanwhile, UAW Local 42 has elected a plant president, is holding meetings and is selecting a bargaining committee.However, VW really complicated matters last November by setting up a so-called “employee engagement” program which recognizes worker organizations with 15, 30 or 45 percent membership. (An independent auditor confirmed that Local 42 has 45 percent.) VW’s plan is remarkably similar to the program that the Tennessee public schools initiated after the state’s 2011 Republican super-majority voted to strip the Tennessee Education Association of collective bargaining rights.In both programs, workers elect representatives to meet with management and arrive at nonbinding, unenforceable agreements about working conditions and salaries. Also in both programs, anti-union lobbyists working through deceptive front groups compete with union reps for workers’ votes and policy decisions.In the public school system, one such group is the Professional Educators of Tennessee, which gets big-bucks funding from groups like the National Right to Work Foundation and the American Legislative Exchange Council. A TEA rep told Labor Notes that PET’s role, with one representative on a seven-person panel, has been counterproductive, as it tries to undermine workers’ economic issues on the job. He summed it up as “the next step after right to work” [for less].In the VW plant, the American Council of Employees, a rebranded version of the group that lobbied against unionization in 2014, is another such well-funded, right-wing, anti-worker, pseudo union.Reportedly, ACE has barely managed to hoodwink 15 percent of the workforce into voting for them, compared to UAW’s strong majority. UAW organizers and workers say they will continue fighting for authentic union representation. (Dec. 17) Stay tuned.Boston bike-share workers unionizeWith a resounding 74 percent majority, workers at the Boston bike-share company Hubway voted Dec. 4 to join Transport Workers Union Local 100. The workers cite unfair wages, dangerous working conditions, and unpredictable and disruptive schedules as their biggest grievances. TWU Executive Vice President John Samuelsen stated, “A union contract will provide them a platform to have real input in giving Boston a world-class bike-share operation, and it will enable us to address current problems, including operational difficulties and safety concerns.” Hubway workers join bike-share workers in New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C., all of whom recently joined TWU Local 100. (, Dec. 15)Thousands of Calif. mental health care workers go on strikeSome 2,600 mental health care workers at California’s Kaiser Permanente hospitals called a weeklong strike beginning Jan. 12. Workers demanded that Kaiser adequately provide for its psychiatry departments, which they say are dangerously understaffed, forcing patients to endure long wait periods in violation of state law. Kaiser was cited and fined $4 million by the state Department of Managed Health Care in 2013 for “serious” and “systemic” violations, but workers say the situation has only deteriorated since then. It often takes three to six weeks after a patient is diagnosed to get a follow-up appointment.Clement Papazian, rank-and-file president of the National Union of Healthcare Workers Northern California chapter for mental health workers, said in a written statement: “For patients suffering from depression, anxiety, and other debilitating mental conditions, these delays are unbearable. Some have even died by suicide during the lengthy delays. As mental health clinicians, we have an ethical obligation to advocate for our patients.” Workers hope the strike will compel Kaiser, which has a $30 billion bank account, to cough up some bucks to fulfill its obligation to patients. (, Jan. 12)Meanwhile, in separate contract negotiations affecting 18,000 nurses and nurse practitioners at 86 Kaiser hospitals and clinics in northern and central California, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United finally resolved months of stalled contract negotiations on Jan. 16. The proposed contract calls for hundreds of new nurses to be hired, new workplace protections, increased pay, continued pension plans, and new committees of nurses and nurse practitioners to address standards of care.

RSF decries blocking of 54 Bangladeshi news sites before election
