Less than half of City jobs are in finance

first_img FINANCIAL companies in the City and Canary Wharf stimulate a vast and varied range of jobs outside the sector, according to official figures seen by City A.M.Less than half (44 per cent) the jobs in London’s main financial districts were in finance and insurance in 2009, with 232,682 other jobs existing in support services and sectors such as retailing.“For every financial services head office job there are other jobs created in the City and Canary Wharf – from retail, hospitality and professional and public services,” said Chris Cummings of promotional body TheCityUK. “The same is true across the UK, and that’s why we must preserve and develop the UK’s role as a global financial services hub,” said Cummings.In the City and Canary Wharf, there were 18,300 jobs in hotels and restaurants and 18,800 jobs in wholesale and retail trade, according to data compiled by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).Many of the related jobs rely on the financial sector, Cummings said. As the recession started to bite, a seven per cent fall in financial jobs coincided with a 22 per cent drop in administration and support activities, the figures showed.And employment in the City fringe also receives knock on effects, the data suggests. As City finance employment rose by 4,000 between 2006 and 2007, finance jobs in fringe areas increased by 4,600.FAST FACTS | CITY JOBS● The City and Canary Wharf provide 18,300 jobs in hotels and restaurants (2009).● And a total of 232,682 non-finance jobs.● Just 44 per cent of jobs in the two areas are directly in finance and insurance.

Which FTSE 100 firms could see a cut in dividend payouts due to the market crash?

first_img Jonathan Smith | Monday, 30th March, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Jonathan Smith does not own shares in any firm mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended ITV. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address 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. Image source: Getty Images The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is still ongoing and still affecting the FTSE 100 stock market. On top of the move lower in the FTSE 100 index, individual firms within it are also impacted. Sectors such as aviation, travel, and retail are just a few that are struggling.Here at The Motley Fool, we believe in investing for the long term, and so see some good opportunities to buy given the cheap valuations on offer. A side impact of cheaper valuations is that it artificially boosts the dividend yield of a company.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…As an example, let us say you bought a stock at 100p and it paid a dividend of 10p. Your dividend yield would be 10%. But if the share price dropped to 80p, the dividend yield increases to 12.5%. This is good news for new investors, as they can effectively lock in the higher dividend yield by buying the share at a cheaper price.The risk of this is that dividends are not guaranteed with ordinary shares. A company can decide to decrease or even cut a dividend all together for a year, depending on financial performance. While the board of directors aims to keep paying a dividend in order to keep shareholders happy and invested during bad times, it does not always happen.Which FTSE 100 firms have announced a cut?One of the biggest announcements of a dividend cut came last Monday, when ITV said it would not pay £213.6m in dividends. This is part of a £300m cost-cutting exercise, needed to offset a fall in advertising revenue.UK housebuilder Persimmon also announced that it was cancelling its next two dividend payments. Like ITV, the housebuilder is seeking to cut costs, due to a dry up in demand for new houses. Even finished projects will likely see stagnant demand until uncertainty has passed.How can I be sure of receiving a dividend?There are two ways that income investors can aim to still pick up dividends by investing in FTSE 100 firms. Firstly, look at the size of the share price fall and the updated dividend yield.For example, the ITV share price is down over 55% in the past three months. Using the previous year’s dividend of 8p per share, and a share price of 67p, this would be a dividend yield of 12%. This looks unsustainable in light of the firm’s historical dividend yield. Hence, we have seen it cut. There are plenty of other shares now yielding 10% or even 20% yields which start to raise alarm bells for me.Secondly, look at the firm’s dividend cover. This measures the profit of a firm versus how much is paid out as a dividend. A cover of 1 means the dividend can be paid entirely from profit. To feel safer about continuing to receive a dividend, I would be buying firms with a cover of at least 1.5.In my opinion, seeking reliable dividend income at the moment is tough. That is why I am focusing more on buying stocks for capital appreciation. I’m looking for stocks that are fundamentally undervalued in the long run.

This is 1 FTSE 100 bargain buy I wouldn’t want to miss

first_img Manika Premsingh | Saturday, 28th November, 2020 | More on: AAL Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. If there’s any proof that patience can really pay in stock market investment, here it is. Two years ago I wrote a bullish article about the FTSE 100 miner Anglo American (LSE: AAL). Curious to see how investors who might have bought it then were faring now, I made a quick calculation. It was heartening to see a 37% increase in AAL’s share price in those two years. That means, shareholders have earned an over 18% return on this share on average every year. But here’s what I truly believe is the best part — I think it can still make some smart returns. Here are four reasons why.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…#1. Diamonds are foreverGlobal demand for Anglo American’s products was on the uptick even before the coronavirus vaccine candidates were developed. In its recent update, AAL talked about US and Chinese consumers contributing to increased diamond sales. AAL is the parent company of De Beers, the world’s biggest diamond company. Moreover, it expects “reasonable demand to continue throughout the holiday season”. Both the US and Chinese economies are expected to grow even more in 2021. This suggests that diamond demand should remain strong too. Diamonds are a big revenue generator for AAL, with the third largest share of 16%, among the entire set of commodities produced.#2. Shining brighter than goldThe share of diamonds is smaller only than that of iron ore and the platinum group metals. Iron has seen a sharp increase in price this year, which is also a positive for AAL. Interestingly, iron’s price rise is even more than the gold price increase, according to a Financial Times report. With an increased infrastructure push in 2021 likely across big economies, I reckon iron will stay in a sweet spot.Moreover, AAL is optimistic about platinum group metals’ demand. In its annual report for 2019, the company attributed this to expected increased production for cleaner vehicles in the future.#3. Still a FTSE 100 bargain buyDespite its prospects, the FTSE 100 multi-commodity miner’s price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is a relatively low 13.5 times. By comparison, other FTSE 100 stocks have way higher earnings ratios, including Covid-19 vaccine maker AstraZeneca, Primark owner Associated British Foods and speciality chemicals manufacturer Johnson Matthey, among others.And this is when the AAL share price has already run up quite a bit. Like most other stocks, it has gained from the stock market rally that started this month, accelerating the momentum it had found in the months before. #4. Resilient dividendsI also like that it pays dividends. It has a yield of 2.6%, impacted by dividend reduction earlier during the year, but there’s something to say about continuity. Global mining peer Glencore, in contrast, stopped paying dividends altogether. Further, I’m hopeful that the future will be even better for dividends. According to global rating agency Moody’s, AAL’s performance could improve hereon.As things stand, I see little not to like in AAL for the investor. I’d buy now. Manika Premsingh owns shares of AstraZeneca and Glencore. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Associated British Foods.

Diocese of Wyoming announces slate of nominees for 10th bishop

first_img Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET [Diocese of Wyoming] The Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming is pleased to announce the slate of two candidates who will be on the ballot for the election of the 10th bishop of the diocese.The Rev. David L. Duprey returns to Wyoming as a candidate for bishop, having served as an active-duty U.S. military chaplain for the past 12 years. He graduated in 1988 with a master of divinity degree from Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry. Duprey was ordained to the diaconate at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Laramie, Wyoming, in 1988, then to the priesthood in 1989. Duprey served as vicar of St. John the Baptist in Big Piney from 1988 until 1992 and as rector of St. Peter’s, Sheridan, until he answered the call to become a Navy chaplain in 2008.As a chaplain, Lieutenant Commander Duprey has served the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Navy. When not deployed, Duprey has enjoyed rich connections with local Episcopal churches; first with St. Anne’s, Jacksonville, North Carolina, then for the past eight years as adjunct clergy with Christ & St. Luke’s, Norfolk, Virginia.The Rev. Canon Paul-Gordon Chandler is the rector of the Anglican Church in Qatar (the Church of the Epiphany & the Anglican Centre) in the Persian Gulf, a church that hosts over 20,000 people from 65 countries in its building every weekend. Serving as an appointed mission partner with The Episcopal Church, he is an Episcopal priest, author, peace builder and art curator.Chandler grew up in Senegal in West Africa and has lived and worked around the world in leadership roles with The Episcopal Church, faith-based publishing, the arts and Christian relief and development agencies. He is also the founding president of Caravan, an international peace building nonprofit closely associated with The Episcopal Church that uses the arts to build sustainable peace around the world, and which has held several strategic interreligious art exhibitions throughout Wyoming.During the selection process the search committee was required to be more creative due to these challenging times. While the plan was to have a select group of candidates come to Wyoming for a discernment retreat, that did not happen. “By the grace of God, we were able to host a virtual retreat with the candidates,” according to search committee co-chair Linda Anderson.The committee spent time in prayer and individual discernment before coming together by Zoom to have the final meeting. After three hours of discussion, the committee chose three candidates that they felt were the best of the best. One of the candidates subsequently withdrew from consideration, leaving Duprey and Chandler as the Standing Committee nominees.The Search Committee is the primary method through which candidates for election are selected in the Diocese of Wyoming. A petition process allows additional qualified candidates to be considered. All candidates, including qualified petition candidates, will be in the diocese for a real or virtual walkabout, depending on COVID-19, before the Sept. 19 Electing Convention, so that Wyoming may get to know them better before the Convention.The consecration of the 10th bishop of Wyoming is scheduled for Feb. 13, 2021, in Casper, Wyoming.

Brooklyn, N.Y., tenants insist ‘The city is not for sale!’

first_imgCops move in at City Hall in New York City, Nov. 30.Brooklyn, N.Y., tenants against gentrification were threatened with arrest on Nov. 30 during a New York City Council meeting. Earlier, these advocates for affordable housing occupied the flight of steps leading up to New York City Hall. Two hundred tenants, members of Laborers Union Local 79 and other supporters had rallied for over an hour to demand that Brooklyn’s publicly owned Bedford Union Armory in the Crown Heights neighborhood be turned into 100 percent affordable housing.Politicians walked by this very strong protest on their way to the council meeting, where they would soon vote against the interests of the community.Laurie Cumbo, City Council representative for the tenants’ area, had promised during her run for office that the armory would become 100 percent affordable. But the plan Cumbo backed in the council meeting included over 150 market-rate apartments.Not long after the protesters opposed to gentrification and displacement filled seats at the council meeting, another City Council member praised Cumbo’s armory plan. When the crowd’s demands of “Kill the deal!” rang out, people were threatened by police with removal by physical force of anyone who spoke out.The protesters condemned any praise for Cumbo’s plan because market rate means high rents and continued displacement of poor and working-class renters. As community leader Berta Lewis of NY Communities for Change said: “[Cumbo] has no shame. She will do anything!” Lewis noted that politicians “will talk progress and walk for profit.”The community’s strong organizing and working-class pressure over the last three years has been victorious in forcing the politicians and developers to include 250 low-income apartments in the armory plan. Only 10 percent of the projected apartments are designated for people who are homeless.As Imani Henry, a leader in the Brooklyn Anti-gentrification Network, told WW: “What is evident and clear is that the vast majority of the City Council are Democrats, who are pro-gentrification in line with big real estate. Even the so-called progressive ones are at the bidding of big realtors.“That there was so much police presence for our rally speaks to the fact that the council members and the de Blasio administration know what they are doing is wrong. They’re scared to death of the people, when the people of the city continue to rise against them!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana Planting Will Ramp Up this Week

first_img Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 By Andy Eubank – Apr 27, 2015 Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 Facebook Twitter SHARE Busy planting weekFinally. Indiana farmers are staring at an actual planting window this week, and finally fields should be a swarm of activity. The state had a pretty wet Saturday but now it should start to dry out, according to HAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin.“It’s going to be mostly dry this week. My concern on moisture is at midweek Wednesday, Thursday. That’ll be about the time we see this fairly strong low passing through. It looks to me like it’s gonna be right there in the northern part of Mississippi, Alabama, southern Tennessee, so that’s close enough to try and throw some moisture up in the Ohio River Valley. Then as that low taps into moisture near the Carolina and Virginia coast, we’ll probably see a strong wraparound on the back side and maybe some clouds but not a lot of moisture. I think there’s going to be a ton of planting in the state this week.”But Martin says it might be another day before the flurry begins.“The reason for that is we had good rain this weekend. Cooler temperatures mean lower evaporation rates, so we’re probably not gonna be quite ready to go till midweek but once were ready, even though it’s cool, I think there’s going to be a lot of seed thrown in the ground. It probably works this time around because next week we’ve got moisture coming, but temperatures should be warmer next week, maybe even a little above normal, so it will be a warm rain. That will help out and overcome the cool soil conditions this week.”So a good planting window is upon us, but how large is that window?Ryan Martin“I’ll put it to you this way. I heard a lot of talk last week about a 10 day window. No, you’ve got about five, maybe six days if you’re lucky and that includes what’s happening right now. Once guys get going if it really is midweek we probably have 4-5 days. I have moisture starting to ramp up probably Monday afternoon of next week. I would put it this way, this may be the biggest window we have. This isn’t time for eight, 10, 12 hour days. This is the time I think guys are going to go out there, put the pedal down and throw in as much as we can.”Rural motorists, be advised, it’s going to get busy this week.
