These 5 FTSE 100 shares pay out billions in cash every quarter. I’d love to own them!

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images One of the joys of owning shares, especially FTSE 100 stocks, is the cash payouts (dividends) regularly paid to their shareholder owners.The joy of FTSE 100 dividendsFor me, dividends also fundamentally undermine the claim that the stock market is a casino for gamblers. When I hear this, I quote legendary US fund manager Peter Lynch. He said, “A share is not a lottery ticket…it’s part-ownership of a business”.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…For the record, the UK lottery pays out only half (50%) of ticket sales in prizes. In the gambling world, that’s known as a 50% ‘negative expectation’. Conversely, the regular cash dividends paid out to UK (mostly FTSE 100) shareholders last year totalled £110.5bn. That’s a near-5% positive yearly return (assuming no capital gains nor losses).FTSE 100 dividends devastatedSo far, so good, but now for the bad news. This year, FTSE 100 dividends have been devastated thanks to Covid-19 and a lower oil price.In the second quarter, FTSE 100 dividends crashed by 45%, and an even more drastic 76% for the FTSE 250. This is even worse than in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, when two-fifths of companies cut or cancelled their cash payouts.For the second quarter of 2019, the top-five FTSE 100 dividend payers handed over £10.9bn in cash to their shareholders (page 9, PDF). These five dividend darlings accounted for almost three-tenths (29%) of all dividends paid by UK-listed companies in Q2/19. Wow.In Q2/20, FTSE 100 dividends collapsed, with the top five paying out a mere £5.8bn, or 36% of all UK-listed company dividends. The year-on-year difference is £5.1bn, which is a huge body blow for income-seeking investors.The five ‘big beasts’ for dividendsDue to the coronavirus, we’re living in a weird world, where it’s difficult see beyond the economic havoc that the virus has inflicted. One day, the world will emerge from this crisis, growth will resume, and corporate profitability will rebound. Then FTSE 100 dividends will grow again, as they did every year from 2015 to 2019.Currently, these are the five biggest beasts among FTSE 100 dividend payers (note that BP announced today that it would halve its dividend, but still yields almost 5.4% a year):Rank | Company | Description | Market value#1 | Rio Tinto | Global miner | £80.9bn#2 | BP | Oil supermajor | £57.0bn#3 | British American Tobacco | Tobacco | £57.9bn#4 | GlaxoSmithKline | Pharma | £79.6bn#5 | Royal Dutch Shell | Oil supermajor | £98.3bnAs you can see, each of the FTSE 100’s big five is a mega-cap giant, and all are global leaders in their respective fields. Their sheer size and strength allow them to pay huge dividends, while still investing in and growing their businesses.Decent dividends are the bedrock of portfoliosEarlier this week, I wrote that I wouldn’t recommend building a portfolio from only five shares. That’s because a five-share portfolio doesn’t offer anywhere near enough diversification (especially for income seekers). Also, two of the five (BP and Shell) are in the same sector, further increasing concentration risk.However, if forced to, I would put a fair chunk of money into these five dividend dynamos. After all, I’ve recommended all five separately to readers in recent weeks. And I estimate that this FTSE 100 mini-portfolio’s dividend yield would exceed 6%. That’s a much greater return than playing the lottery! 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.

New online toolkit for Scottish voluntary sector staff and volunteers

first_img The Scottish COuncil for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) has launched the “Voluntary Management Essentials website.”The site, a sub-section of the SCVO Web site, says that it offers “a wide range of free, reliable information on all aspects of setting up and running a voluntary organisation in Scotland.”The resource has been made possible by a grant from the New Opportunities Fund which has enabled SCVO to digitise much of its information that was previously available only on paper and accessible only in office hours. Voluntary Management Essentials is one of nine projects participating in the Enrich Scotland project, a £6 million lifelong learning project, which aims to support Scottish lifelong learning, citizenship and cultural awareness.

Modernisation Fund distribution plans revealed

first_imgModernisation Fund distribution plans revealed Howard Lake | 23 October 2005 | News Tagged with: Ireland Application is through an open two stage process. Applicants will initially be invited to submit a concise expression of interest after which successful expressions of interest will be asked to submit a full application for appraisal. An unusual aspect of this process will be the requirement in advance to get the endorsement of the government department responsible for the service or activity delivered. It appears that the fund will be open very shortly, with the draft guidelines indicating applications by the end of October. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img The government fund worth £18 million to assist the voluntary sector in Northern Ireland to modernise has produced draft guidelines. The Modernisation Fund has been established to provide resources above normal funding mechanisms to help promote modernization and change within the voluntary and community sector and to enhance the capacity of the sector to deliver services. The draft guidelines produced by the Department of Social Development indicate that the fund will only support those organizations which are already directly involved in delivering services. One element of the fund will distribute £3 million towards ‘innovation, organizational restructuring, joint working, partnerships or mergers and improving governance. The remaining £15 million pounds will be directed at improving service delivery through physical infrastructure with a particular priority on services in support of children and on improving accessibility to services. There is no funding limit for projects and while the funds will be distributed over three years the government is clear they do not want to ‘create a resource trail.’ In other words, they do want long term funding commitments and all initiatives have to be one-off.

The New York Times reports that investors purchased one-fifth of all single-family starter homes on the market, double the number they bought 20 years ago. Additionally, according to the 2017 American Community Survey, investors own and rent out about 18.2 million one-unit homes, including detached homes, townhomes, and duplexes, providing housing for about 42% of the nation’s 43 million renter households.In response to this large increase, Urban Institute has three points to consider: Are investors taking homeownership opportunities away from individuals and families?Are investors creating and maintaining quality affordable rental units?Are investors increasing home prices?Investors are more likely than individual buyers to buy in cash, giving them leverage in a home purchase over a traditional buyer. Additionally, bigger investors also have technological and managerial advantages that allow them to determine a house’s value so they can act quickly. According to GlobeSt.com, the demand for SFR is projected to outpace multifamily, office, retail, self-storage and hospitality growth in the next three years.“The stark difference in growth in the past decade between the number of renters and that of homeowners is quite astonishing, with the overall renter population increasing by more than 23 million versus less than 700,000 for owners,” said Kevin Maggiacomo, CEO and president of SVN International Corp on GlobeSt. “When the National Apartment Association reports that well over 4.5 million units are needed across all price points by 2030 just to satisfy current rental demand, you get a real sense of both the challenge and chance in the residential market right now.”There are some policies the Urban Institute notes to keep SFR investors and homebuyers on a level playing field and improve the market overall. This includes nonprofit to provide assistance to traditional buyers or pushing investors to broaden access to single-family homes near good schools and safe neighborhoods.  Print This Post About Author: Seth Welborn Subscribelast_img read more

A bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R. Subhash Reddy & MR Shah observed that due medical care is being given to the Prajapati and that the order passed by the High Court is “unsustainable” as it has not considered entire materials on record.The top court has stated that Prajapati was being given due medical care by jail authorities & hence, bail which was granted to him for 2 month wasn’t required.”There was no satisfaction recorded by the High Court that treatment offered to respondent was not adequate and he requires any further treatment by any particular medical institute for which it is necessary to release the respondent on interim bail on medical grounds.”- Supreme CourtThe Court has further observed that in the medical treatment given to Prajapati, there were no shortcomings by SGPGIMS which is a super specialty hospital and that, even as on date medical care was being provided to him.”When the respondent was being given treatment in the superspeciality hospital, i.e., S.G.P.G.I.M.S. as recommended by K.G.M.U., we fail to see as to what were the shortcomings in the medical treatment offered to respondent, which could have been the basis for grant of interim bail on medical ground…. Even as on date, due medical care is being taken of the respondent, which is apparent from the additional documents filed as Annexure A-2 and Annexure A-3 alongwith the application dated 10.10.2020. The High Court, without considering the entire materials on record, has passed the impugned order dated 03.09.2020, which is unsustainable.”Furthermore, the court has made it clear that the observations made in this order are only for deciding this appeal and shall have no bearing on the merits of the Bail Application No.5743 of 2019, which is still pending before the High Court for consideration.The Allahabad High Court on had on September 3, granted bail to Former Uttar Pradesh minister Gayatri Pradesh Prajapati, in connection to a gang rape case registered against him.He was granted bail on a personal bond in the sum of Rupees Five Lakh with two sureties of Rupees Two Lakh Fifty Thousand each to the satisfaction of the concerned trial court.On September 20, Supreme Court had stayed the short-term bail in the appeal filed by State of Uttar Pradesh against the September 3 Allahabad High Court order.Additional Solicitor General SV Raju had led arguments on behalf of the State of Uttar Pradesh with the premise that the Hon’ble High Court had erroneously granted a short-term bail of two months to the politician accused in a POCSO case solely on medical grounds, ignoring that the Accused has throughout been treated in premier national medical Institutes KGMC / SGPGI.Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan had argued that that every person, who is accused of an offence, even if the offence is a serious offence, requires a humane treatment by the prison authorities. There can be no two views with regard to above. Humane treatment to all including an accused is requirement of law. Furthermore, a prisoner, who is suffering from an ailment, has to be given due treatment and care while in prison. In its appeal, State of UP had contended, challenging the grant of bail, that the politician is a prominent minister and wields considerable influence in the “environs of powers” and has hoodwinked authorities, even after the registration of FIR by victim.”That the Respondent Accused was a very prominent Minister in the erstwhile government and wielded considerable influence in the environs of powers. The Political position of the accused was so dominating that a First Information Report against him, came to be registered, only after the victim approached this Hon’ble Supreme Court by filing a Writ Petition. Even after the registration of FIR, the Respondent accused hoodwinked the investigating agency for a considerable period of time but ultimately surrendered in April, 2017″Prajapati is an undertrial in Case Crime No.29 of 2017 dated 18.02.2017 under Section 376(D), 354A(I), 504, 506, 509 of I.P.C. and Section 5 and 6 of POCSO Act, 2012 registered at police Station Gautampalli, District Lucknow.Case against Prajapati:Notably, it was alleged by a Chitrakoot-based woman that Prajapati and his six aides had gang-raped her and attempted to outrage the modesty of her minor daughter when he was a minister in Uttar Pradesh.In 2017, after the Uttar Pradesh police denied to register an FIR against Prajapati, a PIL petition was filed by the woman in the Supreme Court and had sought the court’s direction for lodging an FIR.Consequently, the Supreme Court had ordered the UP police to lodge a First Information Report (FIR) against him in connection with cases of alleged gang rape and sexual harassment.However, the woman, who accused the former minister of rape and filed the aforesaid PIL, had later withdrawn her statement by submitting an application in the special MP-MLA court in Prayagraj in 2019. The woman retracted her statement in court saying that the former minister did not rape her but two of his aides did.Notably, in 2019, the CBI had registered two FIRs in connection with the mining scam in Uttar Pradesh and had named Prajapati and four IAS officers. The FIRs were registered as the central probe agency conducted search operations at 12 locations in the state.Click Here To Download OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
