FTSE 100 yields have surged! Here are 2 dividend stocks I’d buy

first_img 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. FTSE 100 yields have surged! Here are 2 dividend stocks I’d buy See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images As the FTSE 100 has declined over the past few weeks, dividend yields on some of the market’s top dividend stocks have surged. Indeed, the index’s average yield now stands at 5.7%. That’s nearly a full percentage point higher than it was at the beginning of this month.As such, now could be an excellent time for investors to snap up shares in high-quality FTSE 100 dividend stocks at a discount valuation. Here are two companies that look particularly attractive after recent declines.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…Dividend stocks on offerWhen it comes to FTSE 100 dividend stocks, Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) has always been a standout performer. The company has paid a dividend to investors every year since the end of the Second World War. During this time, the business has seen numerous recessions, depressions, wars and oil price slumps. Its dividend has survived all of them.Therefore, even though the current market environment is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, the company’s past resilience suggests it could come out on top this time as well.For the past few years, Shell has been focused on cutting costs and improving efficiencies across the group. Management has been positioning the company for a low-oil-price environment. As it turns out, these were extremely well-timed actions.OPEC and Russia’s price war has sent oil prices plunging. This is only adding to the economic pain the global coronavirus outbreak is inflicting.This double whammy could be too much for some high-cost producers to handle, but Shell’s integrated operations should help the business pull through. The company is the largest energy trader in Europe and also has a blossoming electricity division.After recent declines, the stock supports a dividend yield of 15%, which suggests that even if the payout is cut by 50%, the stock would still offer investors a market-leading 7.5% yield. On top of this, the shares are dealing at a price-to-earnings ratio of 5.8. This implies they offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.Steady incomeDuring the financial crisis, only a handful of companies managed to maintain their growth trajectories while the rest of the business community struggled. One of these was British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS).For its 2009 financial year, the company reported a 20% increase in gross turnover. Tobacco volumes jumped 1% and basic earnings per share rose 11%. In other words, the company has a track record of being able to achieve growth in hard times. That’s why British American has a reputation as one of the FTSE 100’s top dividend stocks.However, despite these strengths, shares in the company have still dropped like a stone in recent weeks. After these declines, the stock now offers investors a dividend yield of 8.3%. Meanwhile, the shares are dealing at a P/E of 7.9.Analysts are expecting the business to report earnings growth of around 11% in 2020. That’s even after factoring in the current economic uncertainty. Further growth is forecast for 2021.Lower interest rates also suggest the company’s bottom line will benefit from lower interest costs, which could speed up with the group’s efforts to reduce its looming debt mountain.Therefore, now looks to be an excellent time to take advantage of the recent market sell-off and snap up a share of this leading FTSE 100 dividend stock. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The prayer God loves to grant

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply Please enter your name here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 1 COMMENT InspirationBy Charles TowneI don’t imagine there is anything that pleases God more than for His people to emulate their Lord, master, and friend, Jesus. I think that nothing brings greater joy to the father than for our lives to radiate His Son’s exquisite love.If I read Him right, the one thing that brings a smile to His face more than any other is for His kids to portray the likeness of Jesus. Where else will we ever see our Lord again upon this earth in physical form if not in those that profess to be His followers? What does a genuine Christian look like? Well, a kind and loving character will be evident, (I think in my own life the ability to not be easily provoked will be a biggy.)When truly converted, a Christ follower will be possessed of a character pronounced by genuine humility, and yet with a boldness that renders that one able to endure any insult.   It seems evident that many of Christ’s professed followers imagine their Lord as weak, and therefore if they are like Him they are somehow going to be weak as well.What a fallacy this is.Jesus Christ went to the cross willingly, not as one vanquished, but with infinite power at His summons. To have at His fingertips this incredible power, and yet to choose not to call on it is probably the greatest evidence of His divinity. So, are you a Christ follower?Is He evident in your life? Is His character becoming more pronounced in your life with every breath, every thought, every moment of every day? O.K., What is the prayer that God loves to hear?   Somehow I think that when, and only when, we can pray the prayer of submission apparent when we pray for the character of Christ, when we desire His likeness more than breath itself will that which we genuinely desire be evident, and we will have the peace and love the Father destined each of us to radiate with a joy unimagined.Live fully, Love openly, Love God, and make a difference, today.

Casa MEC is located in front of a wonderful natural environment, large stone hills within a field condominium on the outskirts of Lima, in the district of Cieneguilla. The house, located on a plot of 1,800 m2, has a covered area on the first level of 200 m2, and on the second level of 189 m2 also an underground dressing room for the pool that has 12 m2, giving a total of 401m2 roofed living place. In addition parking for 6 cars, which with the deposit, and the machine room gives us an additional 223.41m2.Save this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiThe main motivation of the project was that its inhabitants could enjoy and appreciate the natural environment, large stone hills. The rustic and rough character of the exposed rock was the result of demolishing the hill at the back of the house, which is what led to the selection of the material of the work, concrete faced with wood boards texture. Material that generates a particular character that blends with the environment. To continue with this rustic environment, finishes were selected such as solid wood for terraces roofs, bridges and window and window frames, brick and stone floors, avoiding the use of materials that provide perfectly flat surfaces.Save this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiThe layout of the house is “L” shaped with one end turned to take advantage of the view of the bedrooms on the second level. The main entrance is through a long stone-paved road, which leads users from the square that is rising to the level of the ground (3m above street level) to the top of the open rock of the hill, crossing a long wooden pergola that in the future will be covered with Buganvilias. The mentioned way crosses the interior of the house, cutting the pastelón floor of all the interior, ending in a small square that ends very close to the rock.Save this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiThe social area is on the right side of the entrance hall and the private area is on the left side. The house has five bedrooms for the family, all with their own bathroom, the master bedroom was located on the first level and the other four in the second, grouped in two pairs, each group with different views. The sun was resolved by approaching the house to the hill and orienting the views of the bedrooms to the opposite side, as the sun is hidden behind the aforementioned hill. Family integration was sought through the creation of double-height spaces and bridges that surround or cross them, although the terrace area was also highlighted, in front of the room and next to the pool.Save this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Renzo RebagliatiProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Garden Above Store / Pistache GanacheSelected ProjectsSibipirunas House / Studio Otto FelixSelected Projects Share Area:  624 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects Architects: Francisco Dulanto Carbajal Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Photographs:  Renzo Rebagliati Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Renzo Rebagliati+ 31Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/919395/mec-house-francisco-dulanto-carbajal Clipboard Photographs ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/919395/mec-house-francisco-dulanto-carbajal Clipboard Houses 2018last_img read more

Outraged New Yorkers say: ‘Boycott Israel for Justice’

first_imgOn June 9, a crowd of several hundred in New York City vehemently voiced their protest of a recent anti-BDS executive order by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. BDS is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement that supports Palestinian rights by boycotting Israeli economic interests. Rallying in front of Cuomo’s midtown office, the crowd chanted: “Not another nickel! Not another dime! No more money for Israel’s crimes!” and “Cuomo! Cuomo! Don’t you know, Israeli apartheid’s got to go!”Demonstrators held high a defiant banner that read: “We will continue to boycott Israel for justice.” Cuomo’s order establishes state penalties against organizations that support BDS. The action was called by Adalah-NY: The New York Campaign for the Boycott of Israel and Jewish Voice for Peace.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The said observation came from a single judge bench comprising of Justice Bibek Chaudhari while rejecting the bail application of one Khadija Begam in connection with a case registered against her in January this year under sec. 14 and 14C of the Foreigners Act. Sec. 14 of the Act provides for the penalty for contravention of the provisions of the Act in cases where a person remains in India for a period exceeding the period for which visa was issued to him or if any act violating the conditions of the valid visa is done. On the other hand, sec. 14C of the Act provides for the penalty for abetting any offence punishable under sec. 14, 14A or 14B of the Act. A report was submitted by the S.I. of Police dated 23rd March 2021 wherein it was stated that Khadija had produced two documents i.e. Aadhar Card and Voter ID, before the High Court for the first time, in order to claim her Indian citizenship. However, it was the case of the petitioner that as per the documents produced by the S.I., it can be seen that the documents were produced earlier before the Magistrate wherein the said Magistrate had directed the Investigating Officer to conduct an enquiry for submitting a report regarding her documents. Moreover, it was also submitted by the petitioner that without the IO submitting the said report, a chargesheet was filed in the case after which the Magistrate rejected her bail application under sec. 437 of CrPC. Arguing that the petitioner was a resident of Bangalore, a rent agreement was relied upon by her which was executed between her and the landlord. A Local Tahsildar had issued a residential certificate in her name. Going to the facts of the case, the High Court observed thus: “It is needless to say that residential certificate may be obtained by any resident, he may be an Indian National or Foreign National, if he stays at a particular place. Residential certificate is not a proof of citizenship.” Making the aforesaid observation, the Court rejected her bail application, however, liberty was granted to her for making such prayer before the Trial Court during the course of the trial. Similar observations as regards to the proof of citizenship has been made by Gauhati High Court last year wherein it was held that land revenue receipts, PAN Card, Bank Documents do not prove citizenship. Similarly, the same High Court has also observed that school certificate, electoral photo ID card are not a conclusive proof of citizenship and cannot be considered while assessing whether a person is a foreigner under the Assam Accord of 1985.
