Conor Coyle | Sunday, 21st February, 2021 | More on: TRIG UKW The need for the UK and other world powers to accelerate the shift towards green energy has never been greater. Last year the government committed to bringing net greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050.That’s a tall order and will require many businesses to change their models to allow for more renewable energy alternatives to the likes of oil and gas.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…It also presents an opportunity for investing in green energy stocks. These are companies that have built their business with an eco-friendly approach, and could be set for growth in the years ahead as the UK strives for net zero emissions.Here are two green energy stocks I think could provide my portfolio with growth over the long term.TRIGThe Renewables Infrastructure Group (LSE:TRIG) is one example of the rise of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investing. Many funds have been set up with the ultimate goal of supporting companies which generate electricity from renewable energy sources.TRIG in particular focuses on energy produced by onshore wind farms and solar PV parks. The group’s portfolio includes assets across the UK and Europe.The fund’s share price performance has been up and down recently. But if I had invested in the shares five years ago my investment would have grown 35%. As an added bonus for TRIG investors, the company provides an attractive dividend yield of 5.27% at its current share price of 130p.On the downside, shares in this fund could be viewed as expensive. Funds like this are often judged on their estimated NAV (net asset value). NAV is the net value of a fund, i.e., the total value of the assets it holds minus the total value of its liabilities, and is calculated on a per share basis.The estimated NAV for TRIG is currently sitting at 107.93, very much on the premium end of things.However, I only see demand for TRIG’s assets growing as the UK moves to hit its 2050 target.UKWAnother green energy stock which I see as adding long-term value to my portfolio is Greencoat UK Wind (LSE:UKW).The company is currently the largest listed company in the UK by market cap whose sole focus is renewable energy sources. Greencoat’s main business is selling wind farms to larger utility providers. This is an area I think will come to increased prominence as the biggest energy suppliers will need to ultimately divest from oil and gas into renewable energy.Competition is already on the increase, however, which could drive prices down in the long term as we head towards 2050. This could have a knock-on effect for Greencoat’s profits. The estimated NAV for the company is even higher than TRIG as well at 117.However, the company currently rewards investors with an attractive 5% dividend yield which gives me an extra reason to invest. I’d add this to my portfolio of green energy stocks today. conorcoyle has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Greencoat UK Wind.

5 things you should buy during after-Christmas sales

first_img From David McNew/Reuters TAGSAfter-Christmas salesChristmas Previous articleAmazon, Google offer 99-cent movie rental dealNext articleWhy do healthy people have heart attacks? Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR If you’re a last-minute Christmas shopper, here’s one type of sale you may not be considering: the After Christmas sale! Insanity?It sounds like it, but we first talked about this trend in 2012, when “After Christmas” sales appeared on Christmas Eve.The sales have steadily crept back since then, and last year we saw an “After Christmas” sale from Macy’s start on December 20, with orders still guaranteed for pre-Christmas delivery! (Talk about a strange definition of “After.”)Though most After Christmas sales still fall between Christmas and New Year’s, tapering off through the month of January, holiday creep continues to drive them earlier.Whether you delve into these deals before or after December 25, here are five particularly good product categories to keep an eye on. Adam Berry / Stringer / Getty Images1. ClothingWe find a lot of excellent clothing deals after Christmas, from winning single-item deals — like four pairs of Dockers men’s pants for $60 — to the best sales we’ve seen all year from a huge variety of clothing retailers.Last year we saw sales that were either the best or tied for it from Nike, Gap Factory, Brooks Brothers, Tory Burch, Nautica, and many more. If you got some gift cards in your stocking, it’s probably a great time to spend them!Related: Give & Get: The Best Gift Card Freebie Deals for the Holidays Flickr / MilitaryHealth2. Exercise gearOnly about 10% of our fitness deals during this time last year were Editors’ Choice, but it’s still worth keeping an eye out if you’re trying to make good on your New Year’s resolutions. Why? Because some of the Editors’ Choice sales were flat-out excellent.NordicTrack offered one of the best sitewide sales we’d seen from it, at up to 50% off. Many other retailers, such as Running Warehouse and Cabela’s, offered deals comparable to the ones we saw from them during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Leo Hidalgo/Flickr3. ElectronicsAbout 31% of electronics deals we found last year during these sales were Editors’ Choice. Many stores offered large sales on refurbished items. Another notable deal was the best price we’d ever seen for a prepaid iPhone 5s ($150).One category of electronics stands out as a hot post-holiday buy: cameras. During After Christmas sales last year, 37% of camera deals were Editors’ Choice. Canon offered some of the hottest deals we’ve seen on both refurbs and new models in late January. We saw refurb lenses starting as low as $49.99 and up to $700 off new cameras.Also, if you didn’t find that new smartphone you wanted under the tree, don’t fret. Though comparatively few smartphone deals were Editors’ Choice (about 15%), prices didn’t stop dropping just because the holidays ended. Many phones reached new lows during this period, including the unlocked 32GB Galaxy S6 Edge, unlocked 64GB Nexus 6, and several Apple smartwatches. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Laura Bittner5. Christmas decorOne of the best categories of items in After Christmas sales shouldn’t come as a shock: seasonal products. Thirty percent of our seasonal deals during the month after Christmas were Editors’ Choice. It’s not hard to find stores cutting prices by 75% or more. (Lowe’s cut up to 90% off!)Although you’ll have to wait a while to enjoy the 6-foot, pre-lit tree you bagged for $25, or the light strands you picked up for $2 each, it’ll be worth it. You can deck your halls with a smug smile at the far-more-expensive decor in next year’s ads, then treat yourself to some well-deserved cocoa for your stellar planning.

Video gamesWhile you’re also likely to see a lot of great single-item deals — about 56% of the deals we came across during this time last year were Editors’ Choice — a few reliable large sales are worth mentioning. For PC gamers, Steam’s Winter Sale usually kicks off a few days before Christmas and continues through the New Year; Amazon frequently offers deep deals on PC games alongside it.Related: 7 Great Ways to Save on Steam GamesFor console gamers, there’s GameStop‘s “buy two, get one free” used item sale. It arrives just before New Year’s and is the best sale on used items the store offers each year.
