Visa (NYSE:V) stock has quickly remade the ground it lost due to the novel-coronavirus pandemic. Shares of the multinational financial-services firm are now up almost 9% in 2020, despite the shares falling to as low as $133.93 per share in March.

Some of the Sway Boys, a group of TikTok influencers, had been toying with the idea of building their own app to compete with TikTok, but after a discussion with Ryan Kavanaugh, the majority owner of Triller and a veteran entertainment executive, they decided the platform could be good for them.

Triller offered the creators a deal: Tell your audience on TikTok that you’re moving to Triller, and we’ll give you equity and roles within the company. You can still post on TikTok, they were told, but only if you post on Triller more frequently.

© Provided by The Motley Fool

The stock market crash may have caused some investors to sell cheap UK shares in favour of using less risky savings accounts. While this may mean they don’t lose money, they’re also unlikely to generate high returns in the long run.

Similarly, low interest rates mean the passive income prospects from products such as Cash ISAs continue to be relatively disappointing.

As such, now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of British stocks. They could offer a mix of capital growth potential and dividend income that helps you to beat a disappointing State Pension.
