Goodbye to all that: the Footsie’s dividend meltdown

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Even so, IMI is far removed from being a consumer-facing retail, hospitality, or leisure business. Management must be seriously rattled. I can’t blame them. But I’ll sorely miss the income.HSBC, as I’ve said, had no choice. And again, I’ll miss the income. But given that – last time I looked – its UK operations were responsible for only around 5% of the bank’s global revenues and profits, one can’t help thinking that the Prudential Regulation Authority’s reaction has been a little disproportionate. Malcolm Wheatley | Monday, 6th April, 2020 The UK still needs electricity, and I expect their wind farms and solar farms to continue to produce it – and pay RPI-linked dividends in the process. That said, the modest rise in the market over the past ten days could prove short-lived. A little over one week on from March 23, when the Footsie briefly dipped below 5000, London is up 10%. But confidence is still shaky. Malcolm owns shares in IMI, HSBC, Bluefield Solar Income, Foresight Solar, Greencoat UK Wind, Primary Health Properties, and HICL Infrastructure. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Foresight Solar, Greencoat UK Wind, HSBC Holdings, IMI, and Primary Health Properties. 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.  IMI, like many other companies, sees huge amounts of uncertainty ahead, and – again, just like many other businesses – is taking a number of measures to conserve cash. As one fund manager quoted in the Financial Times noted this week, markets might be past peak panic, but they aren’t necessarily past peak pessimism. What to do?Nevertheless, there are things that investors – and especially income investors – might usefully do.For investors with new cash to invest, present prices have an obvious allure. As entry points go, share prices could certainly go lower. Even so, they’re a lot cheaper than they were in mid-February. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. In times like these, I’m certainly glad that all these companies are in my portfolio. From a capital growth perspective, they might not set the world on fire – but for dividend dependability, I expect them to prevail. Certainly, the bank’s many retail investors in Asia are going to be seriously miffed. Going forward, I wouldn’t be surprised if the bank decided to ditch its London listing and base itself elsewhere.Peak pessimism?Eventually, all this will pass. In my view, investors must steel themselves for an uncomfortable few months. The recovery, though, could be lengthy. Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Savers? Bank Rate is now just 0.10% – a fifth of what it was even during the dark days of the financial crisis. So it’s no surprise that savings accounts are paying rates of 0.01% and 0.05%.Bonds and gilts? UK fixed-income yields are on the floor – but at least they’re still positive, unlike yields in a number of countries. I haven’t ever seen or experienced anything like this before. And my own memories of adverse economic conditions go back to 1974, as a young economics undergraduate. 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…Goodbye to all thatFrom my own portfolio, the cuts at a couple of companies have really brought home the scale of the dividend retrenchment: doughty engineering firm IMI, and global banking giant HSBC – the latter at the behest of the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority, leaving it with no choice but to obey.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Goodbye to all that: the Footsie’s dividend meltdown 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. Across the board, dividends are being cancelled – with some yanked just days before payment. As you’d expect, the FTSE 100 is doing slightly better than the UK-focused FTSE 250, but only slightly. And while judging dividend sustainability is difficult, it’s not completely impossible. Likewise, even without new cash to invest, this could be a judicious time for a little portfolio rebalancing.Safe-looking incomesAmong my own holdings, for instance, are three sustainable energy firms: Bluefield Solar Income, Foresight Solar, and Greencoat UK Wind. They’re investment companies, and so are quoted on the London Stock Exchange, just like any other investment trust or property company REIT. For income investors, ‘perfect storm’ doesn’t even begin to describe the situation.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares And speaking of REITs, several REITs and infrastructure trusts have the government as a major tenant – and tenants don’t come more secure than that. Primary Health Properties, for instance, does what it says on the tin: it rents out primary healthcare facilities, almost 500 of them, the majority of which are doctors’ surgeries. Yes, there are apparent bargains out there – but especially for income investors, judging companies’ dividend sustainability is going to be tricky.

Apopka City Council Seat 3 Candidate Q&A – Week 5

first_imgClick Here for Seat 4 Candidates Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment! Previous articleCity Improves Four Baseball Fields for Upcoming SeasonNext articleApopka City Council Seat 4 Candidate Q&A – Week 5 Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Questions & Answers with Candidates for Apopka City Council Seat 3 – Week 5Each week we will be asking the candidates the questions YOU’RE asking.      On the positive side, the present administration should get a big thumbs up for the advancement of technology. It not only promotes better communication, but creates a better format for efficiency and safety.Technology however cannot replace talent and we’ve lost some tremendously talented people who have been quickly hired by other municipalities. Sadly it seems in some cases personal issues and unresolved conflicts have hindered the ability to work together on one part or the other.There have also been reports of city vendors being delayed in payments. It is difficult to have so much turnover and transition in a short amount of time and I believe it is taking a toll but hopefully things will smooth out going forward.In sports we use the term intangible to describe the ability to inspire others to bring out the best in everyone. Team dynamics are as key to victory as talent itself, and though position demands, leadership inspires. As John Maxwell says, If you’re leading and no one is following, you’re just on a walk.On the other hand, leaders must at times make unpopular decisions that are best for all concerned. You can lead or be liked, but you can’t always have both. It’s easy to judge from the sidelines but much harder when in the captains chair. Let’s all pray for our leaders, and when given the chance to lead, seek to inspire the whole team to play together for a win.Its always sad to loose several trusted employees. Its not uncommon for changes like these to happen when new administrations or management comes in. I think that the new heads have taken the vision of Apopka and are working towards that in their department. For example, Chief McKinley has taken his role as Apopka Police Chief very well. He has reached out to the community by doing “Coffee with a Cop”. These innovative ways of interacting with the community and helping in their department will always be a benefit.After talking to several employees in the city I have heard they are very happy with the new IT system. Having updated software like Microsoft they feel that they can be more efficient at their job. Overall, I believe Apopka is continuing to grow together even with these changes. The City of Apopka is governed with a strong mayoral form of governance. Thus, when the citizens elected a new mayor new leadership was critical.It came to light the previous attorney had drafted ten excessive contracts for employee buyouts. The city is still paying $$22,000 a month for the former chief administrator. All total – the taxpayers were on the hook for over $2 million dollars.The IT department was still operating on a 30 year old Novell DOS platform. The police department was compiling crime statistics by hand and never received accreditation. The Budget Director failed to provide detailed accounting or conduct public budget workshops. The city auditor quit once some of these bad practices were revealed.The mayor ultimately hired a new chief administrator and police chief. The new chief administrator responds quickly evidenced by his turn around for sidewalks on Martin Street. To no avail, Toby McEntire had asked for sidewalks for nearly ten years. The new police chief is restoring the confidence of the public with programs such as “Coffee with a Cop” and working towards accreditation. New leaders also head up these positions: City Clerk, Parks and Recreation, Public Information and Grants. The new team operates with honesty, integrity and best practices for governmental agencies. The expectation is for transparency and good communication with the public. We must have the best employees to move the city forward. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter This Week’s Question: “Several department heads have left the city over the past 18 months. Have city services to the public improved in that time? How about internal city functions such as finance or IT?”center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Doug BanksonAlice NolanSam Ruth Doug BanksonAlice NolanSam Ruth Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear You have entered an incorrect email address!

James Haskell at Stade Francais in Paris

first_imgWednesday Sep 2, 2009 James Haskell at Stade Francais in Paris This season the Top 14 in France has had another influx of foreign players thanks to lucrative offers, good rugby, and a change of scenery. James Haskell has gone across for a slightly different reason – to regain his position in the English team. Haskell travelled across the Channel to Stade Francais, leaving his beloved London Wasps and a life in the Guinness Premiership in the hope if finding form with the Paris side. While many feel that leaving your country is a step backwards, Haskell is adamant that this is precisely what he needs to pick up his performances and impress the England management once again following him not being selected for England, the Saxons, or the British & Irish Lions. I set out the reasons I wanted to go and all of them were based on getting back in the England squad and holding down that shirt, he said. There are no excuses not to be involved apart from being down on my performances. In this nice clip, we see the 24 year old loose forward talking about his new ambitions, as well as going through the famous Stade Francais jerseys that continue to fascinate fans around the world. They’ve turned their club into a marketing machine, with the calender and predominantly hot pink merchandise helping to sell millions each season. Look out for Haskell baring his chest soon.

Encuestas predijeron y elecciones de Florida mostraron

first_img16 de noviembre de 2018Dos de las/os tres representantes del sur de Florida en la Cámara de Representantes de EUA que habían priorizado la hostilidad hacia la Cuba socialista perdieron sus asientos. El reemplazo escogido por Ileana Roz-Lehtinen no pudo ganar su escaño en el Congreso y Carlos Curbelo también perdió.Aunque este cambio no se reflejó en la carrera del Senado en Florida, hasta el Miami Herald especuló el 8 de noviembre: “La composición del nuevo Congreso podría crear una dinámica diferente en la política hacia Cuba”.Llamemos “política de Cuba” por su nombre correcto: BLOQUEO. Las/os viajeros pueden reservar vuelos directos en la mayoría de las aerolíneas desde muchos aeropuertos de EUA a destinos en Cuba, pero cuatro bancos indios se han negado a realizar transacciones financieras para vender antibióticos a Cuba. Y ese es solo un ejemplo del bloqueo de los EUA en acción.Pero no crea en que la nueva mayoría demócrata en la Cámara de Representantes cambiará esto. Hasta ahora, son los estados agrícolas en EUA, que se están ahogando en soya, leche y otros productos sin vender, quienes quieren que se eliminen las restricciones. Muchos de estos estados se inclinan hacia los republicanos.El presidente demócrata Bill Clinton, formalizó el bloqueo de la ley mediante la firma de la Ley Helms-Burton en 1996. Incluso las acciones del ex presidente demócrata Barack Obama para restablecer las relaciones diplomáticas, los vuelos directos y las discusiones mutuamente respetuosas con Cuba sobre muchos temas, tenían como objetivo una agenda más amplia y tácita de “cambio de régimen”. El plan era, y sigue siendo, encontrar la manera de reafirmar la dominación estadounidense en América Latina y el Caribe. Los objetivos de los Estados Unidos incluyen no solo a Cuba, sino a Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, así como a la economía más grande de América Latina, Brasil.Depende de las/os revolucionarios, las/os progresistas, las/os cubanoamericanos y el millón o más de residentes de los EUA que han viajado a Cuba y han visto por sí mismas/os formular y hacer cumplir esta demanda en el Congreso de los EUA:¡Poner fin al bloqueo económico, financiero y comercial estadounidense contra Cuba!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Free expression hangs on outcome of international court’s prosecution of French journalist

first_img Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU July 8, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Free expression hangs on outcome of international court’s prosecution of French journalist Organisation Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union Reporters Without Borders reiterates its support for former French journalist Florence Hartmann and hopes she will be acquitted on charges of contempt of court and divulging confidential information when the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) issues its verdict, which is expected in the next few days.A former Yugoslavia correspondent of Le Monde who later worked as official spokesperson and Balkan adviser to ICTY chief prosecutor Carla Del Ponte, Hartmann is being tried in connection with what she wrote about the court in her 2007 book “Peace and Punishment”.“The right to free expression about cases handled by international courts depends on the ICTY’s verdict,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Only Hartmann’s acquittal will reaffirm this fundamental freedom, which is protected by the European Convention on Human Rights and which is being threatened by the ICTY’s prosecution.”“If Hartmann is convicted, it would seriously harm the development of the international courts, which has already been seriously compromised by this case,” the press freedom organisation continued. “How can you trust a court to establish the truth about cases of war crimes and genocide if the same court is bent on covering up information about how it works?Reporters Without Borders added: “The ICTY has it in for Hartmann above all because her book mentions the accords which some of its members reached with the Serbian authorities not reveal certain documentary evidence that had been made available to it. It is legitimate to ask whether the ICTY had a right to reach agreements to cover up documents that would help render justice.”When contacted by Reporters Without Borders, Hartmann criticised the ICTY’s “legal fundamentalism” and its readiness to get bogged down in a superfluous trials, especially given its limited resources, instead of concentrating on its primary mission of trying and convicting war criminals. She was “very worried about the credibility and future of international criminal justice,” she said.Her lawyer, Karim Khan, argued in his final presentation to the court that none of the prosecution’s claims had been corroborated and that “decades of jurisprudence by the European Court of Human Rights on freedom of expression would be consigned to oblivion if a journalist were condemned for raising matters of public interest.”The prosecutor asked the court on 3 July to fine Hartmann between 7,000 and 15,000 euros. If the court complies, it will set a very disturbing precedent for both freedom of expression and international justice. Hartmann has said she will appeal if convicted.The existence of an agreement between the ICTY and the Serbian authorities to redact documents from the archives of the Supreme Council for the Defence of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia-Montegro) implicating the Serbian government in war crimes was already known before Hartmann’s book was published.Several newspapers, including the New York Times, had written about it but none of them was prosecuted by the ICTY.The ICTY brought its “contempt of court” charges against Hartmann on 27 August 2008. Reporters Without Borders has posted key passages from her book on its website.

Foundations Award $728,000 to Support Hillsides Work with Transition Age Youth

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News Aurelio Mitjans, a youth advocate at YMO, helps a youth prepare for a job interview. Much of the grant money received in 2014 will support the YMO workforce development program.Through the generosity of several prestigious foundations, Hillsides has raised $728,000 in grant awards this year to help put hundreds of transition-aged youth in Los Angeles County on the path to independence.The foundations that provided support in 2014 were The Angell Foundation, Annenberg Foundation, Bank of the West, California Community Foundation, The Carl and Roberta Deutsch Foundation, Max Factor Family Foundation, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, RGK Foundation, The Sidney Stern Memorial Trust, TJX Foundation, and The TK Foundation.Hillsides serves hundreds of disadvantaged youth 16-25 years of age through the Youth Moving On (YMO) program. The program provides housing and supportive services to transition age youth, particularly those transitioning from the foster care and juvenile justice systems. YMO operates through two main components: a supportive housing program that serves about 45 youth each year and the Peer Resource Center, a drop-in center in Pasadena where over 500 transition-aged youth seek assistance with housing, health services, employment and more.The grant awards made it possible for YMO to significantly expand programming and increase the number of youth served. Much of the grant money will support the YMO workforce development program. This popular and effective program provides career counseling, job training classes, assistance with job searches, and paid internships to youth who are eager to work but face daunting obstacles due to difficult childhoods.Hillsides opened the Peer Resource Center in May, 2013 and provided services to 450 youth in its first 12 months of operation. The demand for assistance was much greater than Hillsides anticipated, and the foundation grants gave Hillsides the resources to serve every youth who knocked at the Peer Resource Center’s door.Demand for service continues to grow. “The Peer Resource Center tapped into the tremendous needs of transition-aged youth, particularly those who are trying to move from the foster care and probation systems to independence,” said Thomas Lee, division director of transition-aged youth services at Hillsides.Hillsides, headquartered in Pasadena, has been serving children and families since 1913. The agency provides high quality care, advocacy, and innovative services that promote safe, permanent environments where young people can thrive. Currently, Hillsides serves over 8,500 children and families living in Los Angeles County. To learn more about Hillsides, please visit www.hillsides.org.
