first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Thursday, 13th February, 2020 | More on: BHP SSE Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Buying FTSE 100 shares to build a retirement nest egg could be a sound move. After all, the State Pension amounts to just a third of the average income in the UK, while the age at which it starts being paid is set to rise to 67 over the coming years.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that appear to offer good value for money. They also have relatively high dividend yields that could boost their total returns in the long run and enable you to enjoy a greater amount of financial freedom in older age.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…SSEThe recent trading update from SSE (LSE: SSE) showed that the company is on track to meet its financial guidance for the full year. In addition, it expects to pay a dividend of 80p per share, which equates to a yield of around 5% at its current price. It also committed to its dividend payment plan over the next three years, which could see its dividend payments increase by at least as much as inflation over the medium term.Looking ahead, SSE could deliver improving financial performance. Its pivot towards renewables is continuing, and it expects to cease production at its last coal-fired power station in March. Following the sale of its domestic energy supply business to Ovo Energy, SSE now has no exposure to the highly competitive sector. This could reduce its risk, since it may be less impacted by regulatory change.Moreover, renewables are likely to become an increasingly prominent part of the UK’s energy mix. Therefore, SSE may enjoy an improving financial performance over the long run that is reflected in a rising dividend and a higher share price.BHPAnother FTSE 100 share that could deliver high returns in the long run is BHP (LSE: BHP). The mining company recently released an encouraging production update for the first half of its current financial year. It delivered solid operational performance across its portfolio, and expects its overall production to be slightly ahead of the previous year.Additionally, BHP’s cost guidance has remained unchanged from its previous update. This is expected to contribute to a rise in its bottom line of 12% versus the previous year. Since the stock trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11.4 and has a dividend yield of 6.1%, it seems to offer good value for money at the present time.Looking ahead, risks from the spread of coronavirus could hold back the growth prospects for the world economy. This may cause a decline in investor sentiment towards the wider mining sector. However, BHP’s solid financial position and its diverse portfolio of assets could enable it to overcome the near-term challenges it faces. As such, now could be the right time to buy it while it appears to offer a wide margin of safety.

You’ll cry. You’ll wish there were toilets.The year is 1925 and the fledgling Irish Free State is trying to find its way in the world while emerging from the shadow of a deadly War of Independence.Meanwhile, a bloody Civil War pitted brother against brother, father against son, uncle against aunt, second cousin against third cousin once removed and neighbour against the fella around the corner who owns the butchers.Into this scene rolls a traveling group of players who labour under the title of Sir Montague Garrick’s Travelling Theatre & Electric Cinematograph who have taken up residence in the People’s Park, Limerick. Here, they plan to present the blood-curdling melodrama, Murder In The Red Barn – if they can remember the lines.However, the curtain has barely risen on this classic play when one of the actors turns up dead!

Meanwhile, a world famous detective is due in town – will he solve the case before them?However, in a world where nothing is what it appears to be and no one is who they claim to be it will take all of Maguire and Patterson’s training to bring the perpetrator to justice. The trouble is, they haven’t had any training.
