Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The stock market crash may have caused some investors to become less optimistic about the prospect of doubling your money through buying UK shares. They may view the risks ahead, such as a second wave of coronavirus, as being reasons to avoid purchasing bargain stocks at the present time.However, undervalued shares provide an opportunity to buy high-quality businesses at low prices. Over time, they could recover in many cases, and allow you to make a 100%+ return on your ISA portfolio over the long run.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…Past performanceDespite the recent market crash, the FTSE 100 has returned around 8% per annum since its inception in 1984 when dividends are included. This may not sound like an especially appealing return to some investors at a time when gold is surging higher and Bitcoin has doubled in price since its March low. However, when compounding is factored in, an 8% return means that your capital will double every nine years.For example, if you had invested £1,000 when the FTSE 100 was formed in January 1984, you would now have a portfolio valued at over £16,000. During that time, the index has experienced a wide range of bear markets, corrections and downturns. However, it has always recovered to post new record highs. Through simply buying and holding UK shares, you could more than double your money over the long run.Buying after a market crashThe time it takes to double your money via UK shares may be shortened through buying after a market crash. This may sound counterintuitive at first, since risks are generally higher following a severe downturn for the stock market. However, those short-term risks mean that many UK shares trade at lower prices than their historic averages. Therefore, they have greater scope to deliver capital growth, which could lead to market-beating returns for investors who build a portfolio of cheap stocks.Clearly, it is imperative to buy companies that can survive short-term challenges to benefit from a long-term recovery. Therefore, purchasing businesses with wide economic moats, solid balance sheets and sound growth strategies may be important to allow your portfolio to grow in size as the next sustained bull market commences.ISA investingFurthermore, investing in UK shares through an ISA may be worthwhile after the recent market crash. A Stocks and Shares ISA provides tax efficiency that can lead to higher net returns versus investing through a bog-standard sharedealing account. Over time, avoiding capital gains tax and dividend tax could lead to a significantly higher portfolio value.Therefore, now could be the right time to buy high-quality businesses in a Stocks and Shares ISA. Over time, they could double your money and significantly improve your financial prospects as the stock market gradually recovers from its recent downturn.

The journalists were there to cover a demonstration by members of the leading opposition party, Azadlig. A witness said the policemen surrounded the journalists at the end of the demonstration to prevent them leaving. Before hitting them, the first the policemen insulted the journalists as they were photographing and filming the demonstrators, accusing the journalists of acting as publicists for the opposition’s activities.Reporters Without Borders condemns the violence used by police, especially the attack on journalist Mehman Huseynov of the Institute for Freedom and Safety of Journalists, who was badly injured and whose camera was smashed by a policeman. Other journalists were also injured but not as seriously as Huseynov.Reporters Without Borders also condemns the arrests of Ayanda Mursaliyeva (the wife of recently released journalist Ganimat Zahidov), Seymur Haziyev, Natig Gulahmed Oglu, Gan Turali (who, like Oglu, writes for the newspaper Azadlig) and Parviz Hashimli (a reporter for the newspaper Bizim Yol). They were all held for several hours and then released.More than 200 people took part in the demonstration although it was banned by the authorities. It was called by Azadlig and other opposition parties to demand the right to freedom of assembly. The police denied using violence against any of the participants.Reporters Without Borders fears that Azerbaijan could be about to see a resumption of the kind of violence that was frequent in 2006. It therefore urges the government and the police to take all necessary steps to ensure that there is no recurrence of the violence that took place on 26 April.
