Image source: Getty Images. The coronavirus crisis is dragging on, and the latest upsurge means UK shares remain cheap. I reckon these three FTSE 100 stocks could make decent long-term additions to my portfolio. I’d buy all three and hold them for at least 20 years while compounding my gains.Why I’d buy these 3 cheap UK sharesI’ve noticed that many shares with big market capitalisations have been looking weak recently. I’m sure that’s related to the recent upsurge in Covid-19 we are seeing and its potential to damage the world economy.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…But it seems some big-cap shares have been thoroughly binned by investors. For example, pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) and smoking-related products producer British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) are both well down from recent highs.But both those firms operate defensive, cash-producing businesses. And their dividend yields are high. With the share price near 1,344p, GlaxoSmithKline’s forward-looking yield for 2021 is just under 6%. And with the share price around 2,572p, the forward-looking yield for BATS is a little below 9% for next year.However, I admit that both firms carry big debt burdens. If you adjust for borrowings, the earnings multiples may not be as attractive as they at first appear. Indeed, GlaxoSmithKline’s rises to about 17, and the rating for BATS increases to just under 14.However, I’m confident that both firms have dependable businesses capable of continuing to generate cash over the next couple of decades. With steady cash flow, I reckon the shareholder dividends will likely keep on coming. So, whether we see any capital growth from a rising share price or not, I’d compound my gains over the next 20 years by reinvesting the dividend income.But I think GlaxoSmithKline’s research and development pipeline should deliver rising earnings given a 20-year runway. So, I’d expect both capital and income growth from my investment in the company. BATS, I admit, is a little tricky.Cash flow to keep shareholder dividends flowing?It seems clear the tobacco sector is out of favour with investors and I see two possible reasons for that. Firstly, institutions and private investors could be shunning the likes of BATS on ethical grounds. Secondly, the industry is in long-term decline.But I’d ease my conscience by donating a share of my investment profits to charity. And I reckon the firm’s prodigious and reliable cash flow will keep the company paying generous dividends, even if the valuation continues to shrink and keeps capital gains elusive.My third pick for a 20-year portfolio is fast-moving consumer goods company Unilever (LSE: ULVR). I think it’s the king of consumer companies on the London market. And it has an awesome record of execution that shows in its impressive trading record.With the share price near 4,694p, the forward-looking dividend yield is around 3.3% for 2021. But the attraction for me is the potential for the dividend to grow over the next 20 years. Indeed, the firm’s brands are phenomenal in their strength. I’m thinking of names such as Hellman’s, Domestos, Dove, Vaseline, and Persil.And the FMCG sector is well known for its defensive characteristics. We only need look at the strength of trading through the pandemic so far to see the power of the Unilever’s business in action. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Enter Your Email Address 2020 has proved to be a disaster for dividend investors. Hundreds upon hundreds of UK shares have axed, postponed, and/or reduced shareholder payouts following the Covid-19 outbreak. It hasn’t affected my own investing strategy though. There remains plenty of dividend-paying UK shares for me to get rich, and possibly even retire early, with.Dividends from UK shares slowed their rate of decline in the third quarter as an unwinding of coronavirus lockdowns allowed corporate profits to recover. And positive news in recent days on Covid-19 vaccines offer hope for a more lucrative 2021. But stock pickers must remain vigilant when investing in UK shares for dividends. With infection rates surging and lockdowns returning all over the globe, it’s possible dividend declines could worsen again.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…That said, there’s a wealth of information from experts like The Motley Fool to help them on their quest. Here’s a dividend hero I’m thinking of buying for my own Stocks and Shares ISA today.A FTSE 100 dividend heroThere are few UK shares that can get close to Halma (LSE: HLMA) when it comes to being a dividend champion. The safety products manufacturer has raised the annual dividend for a staggering 41 years on the bounce.Even as the Covid-19 crisis continues to worsen, Halma keeps on raising dividends too. Its balance sheet is so strong and its earnings visibility supreme enough, it’s decided to raise the interim dividend by the same percentage, it announced this week.The UK share has a meagre net-debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 1.02 times, well within its operating norm of up to 2 times. It’s also reduced capital investment and banged its acquisition-led growth strategy on the head for the time being to preserve cash.A UK share on my ISA watchlistHalma’s been a reliable profits grower year after year, and this is the bedrock for its outstanding dividend record. And that bulky balance sheet should allow the FTSE 100 company to keep on raising dividends despite the economic downturn.I’m not alone in making this prediction either. While a 7% earnings reversal is predicted for fiscal 2021, another annual payout hike is predicted by City forecasters. A 17.1p per share reward is anticipated, up from the 16.5p dividend shelled out last time.Things get even better for the next financial year too. With annual profits anticipated to rebound 14% in fiscal 2022, Halma’s expected to supercharge the total dividend for that year to 18.8p per share.Now there’s bigger dividend yields out there than Halma’s. For this financial year and next, the UK share’s readings sit at 0.7% and 0.8% respectively. However, this doesn’t mean the FTSE 100 firm can’t still be considered dividend royalty.The capacity of firms like this to raise dividends year after year is what allows long-term investors to get super rich. And this is why I’d buy this income hero for my own ISA today. See all posts by Royston Wildlast_img read more

Renamed Unclaimed Assets fund to be voluntary

June 16, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: nibtjzsrs.

first_img Howard Lake | 8 November 2007 | News The Queen’s Speech this week included the “Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts Bill”, which was previously called the Unclaimed Assets Bill. However, it will not be compulsory for UK banks to take part in it.The Queen’s Speech stated that “legislation will be introduced to enable unclaimed money in dormant bank accounts to be used for youth facilities, financial inclusion and social investment.” A Treasury briefing explained that the purpose of the Bill was to “enable unclaimed assets to be invested for community purposes, whilst ensuring the rights of owners to be reunited with their assets are protected.”The bill defines unclaimed assets as “covering all bank and building society accounts where there has been no customer-initiated activity for 15 years.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Community Foundation Network (CFN) was not pleased with the bill, especially the voluntary element for banks. CFN Chief Executive, Stephen Hammersley said: “Many people had hoped this legislation would help address the funding crisis now looming for small community groups, many of which are amongst the most effective in getting money to the most disadvantaged.“In fact it now looks as if there will be no compulsion on banks and building societies to join the scheme. Government has pulled the plug on a huge swathe of local community funding. This bill was supposed to refill the bath but with the legislation framed as it seems, the inward flow of funds could be little more than a dripping tap.”He called on the Big Lottery Fund, which the bill states will distribute the funds, to ensure that what money is raised gets to grassroots organisations, “rather than going to the 10% mega-charities that currently absorb nearly 90% of all charitable income.” Renamed Unclaimed Assets fund to be voluntarycenter_img  23 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

If the trend continues, UK charities will face a “donation deficit” as the older, more generous generation dies and is replaced by those born after 1965 (‘Generations X and Y’).Findings of ‘Mind the Gap’The study, ‘Mind the Gap: The growing generational divide in charitable giving: a research paper, by Professor Sarah Smith, of Bristol University, has found that:• more than half of all donations now come from the over-60s, compared to just over one third of donations 30 years ago• the over-60s are now more than twice as likely to give to charity as the under-30s.• the over-60s are the only group that has increased its share of the total amount given to charity between 1978 and 2010: their share grew from 9% in 1980 to 21% in 2010. During the same period the under-30s’ share dropped from 8% to 3%.• In 1980, 29% of the over-60s had given to charity, while the figure for those under 30 was 23%. Thirty years later, 32% of people over 60 said they had given to charities in the past fortnight, compared with just 16% of the under-30s.The study contrasts the generosity of the inter-war generation, often referred to as ‘the Silent Generation’ (those born between 1925 and 1945) and those born in the immediate post-war baby boom, between 1945-1966.For the study Smith analysed data from 1978 to 2010 comprising charitable giving in the UK by age and date-of-birth cohort.“Charities face generation time-bomb” says CAFCAF believes that urgent action is required to avert this long-term crisis of giving. John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, said: “We fear that charities will face a damaging donation deficit when people of the older generations pass away. That would severely hit the funding of charities, and their ability to deliver vital services on which so many people rely. This must be addressed now if charities are to survive and thrive”.

Montana issues COVID death sentence to prisoners

June 15, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: nibtjzsrs.

first_imgMontana State Prison reported Nov. 6 that Robert Gonzalez, 70, died Oct. 24 of COVID and that “underlying health conditions contributed to his death.” MSP reported another prisoner Jeffory Alan Lafield died of COVID the same day. (tinyurl.com/y4ay7e5f) According to NBC Montana, this prisoner, also in his 70s, had underlying conditions. (Nov. 2)In October, Montana families turned out in Missoula to support incarcerated people. PHOTO: Sara DigginsAge, in itself, is an underlying condition. At 17.6%, Montana ranks No. 1 in U.S. states for its percentage of older (55+) prisoners. (tinyurl.com/y52wjkph) Additionally, according to 2015 Bureau of Justice statistics, 32% of people in prisons and 40% in local and county jails are disabled, making them more susceptible to COVID. (tinyurl.com/yydu9df7)In April, Disability Rights Montana and ACLU sought the release of all prisoners with disabilities, older people and those with underlying health conditions. The state’s Supreme Court unanimously denied the claim. (tinyurl.com/y4yj7kt8) COVID-19 deaths and infections are increasing in Montana prisons. Of some 3,600 prisoners that the Montana Department of Corrections listed in the state system at the end of 2019, percentages of infections have been reported variously, from 12% of the population at MSP to 43% at privately run CoreCivic’s Crossroads in Shelby (tinyurl.com/yyh2bwur).  Numbers are also rising in the women’s prison in Billings; Indigenous women make up a disproportionate 34% of the state’s female prison population. (tinyurl.com/y94mkgdn)  The numbers issued by state reports may also hide COVID deaths inside overall death statistics.The state reports no racial/ethnic statistics for COVID infections and deaths among incarcerated people. While Indigenous people comprise 6% of the state’s population, overall they make up 22% of those in prisons and 26% of jail populations. (tinyurl.com/y94mkgdn) While the state’s Black population is 1%, 3% of prisoners are Black and are incarcerated at 5.7 times the rate of whites. The Latinx population is 3% and makes up 5% of prisoners. (prisonpolicy.org/profiles)  The MSP warden has said that unless people in the prison show COVID symptoms, none of the 1,400 inside are tested. No PPE is distributed. No social distancing protocols are in place. All prisoners are locked down 23.5 hours per day. All are assumed positive for the coronavirus.COVID among guards and staff in all Montana prisons and jails is rampant.  (tinyurl.com/y3lwtgns) National Guard military police and battlefield medical units — some veterans of U.S. wars on Iraq and Afghanistan — have been deployed to 17 prisons and jails across the state, ostensibly to assist prison staff with distribution of meals and mail, laundry and inmate counts. (tinyurl.com/yxnz3g7l)But the pandemic death threat and repressive prison conditions raise the possibility that military forces have been brought in to put down any possible uprising by incarcerated people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Passage of Indiana Farm Trespass Bill Looks Promising

June 14, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: nibtjzsrs.

first_img SHARE By Andy Eubank – Feb 19, 2014 Previous articleRaising Awareness this National FFA WeekNext articleNCGA on Washington’s Impact on Ethanol Industry Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SB101 passes first readingIndiana Farm Bureau is pleased with progress this week for Senate Bill 101 after a favorable vote from the House Judiciary Committee. The farm trespass bill can now be called for a second reading, and IFB state policy advisor Amy Cornell is optimistic the bill will soon become law.“Once it gets through the second reading process it will go to third reading where the entire House will vote, and depending on whether or not it’s amended in the house will determine whether or not the bill has to go to conference committee,” she told HAT. “At this point in time we have not heard of a large base of legislators that have concerns, so we are expecting this bill to pass.”Farm Bureau has made improvement in ag trespass law a priority for this session, and Cornell explains this property rights bill has two important components.“It adds agricultural operations to the institutional category under criminal mischief. The other thing it does is to remove the posting burden for the production areas of a farm so farmers would no longer have to post no trespassing signs around their fields, their buildings, their managed timberland area, areas that are fenced in, and things like that. If somebody is trespassing on an agricultural operation and they do something that causes property damage there is a potential for increased penalties depending on the amount of property damage that they caused.”She says the bill is not an “ag-gag” law, but rather a bill providing farmers the same protection against trespass that other Hoosier property owners enjoy.“This is very different than the legislation that we saw introduced last year. This is not a videotaping bill. We worked very hard with folks in the media and legislators to address those concerns and hopefully alleviate any concerns that they had about the first amendment.”Cornell added with the very real issue of potential financial loss because of criminal trespass the bill provides farmers with a greater degree of protection and peace of mind.SB 101 was introduced by Sen. Travis Holdman. Home Indiana Agriculture News Passage of Indiana Farm Trespass Bill Looks Promising Passage of Indiana Farm Trespass Bill Looks Promising SHARElast_img read more

first_img Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) will speak at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA on Wednesday July 27th in the evening. Rep. Chu is appearing as part of a speaking slot with other Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Members of Congress. Rep. Chu released the following statement:This week, I have the exciting privilege to speak at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in support of Hillary Clinton for President! Since I last spoke at the DNC to support Barack Obama for President four years ago, we have made enormous gains for immigrants, communities of color, and women. But those gains are fragile and would be wiped away by the callous policies of a President Trump. That is why this election means so much. Hillary Clinton is the most experienced candidate for President in modern history, with the temperament and compassion necessary to not only build on the successes of the last eight years, but usher in a period of even greater growth and inclusion. It means so much to the nation that she has invited so many Asian American and Pacific Islander Members of Congress to speak at the convention. Her campaign is inclusive and I am thrilled to be able to speak in support of it this week and through the rest of the election.“This is why I am honored to lead my fellow AAPI colleagues to address how far we’ve come as a community and how having a voice in our government will help AAPIs today and for generations to come.” More Cool Stuff Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday First Heatwave Expected Next Week Make a comment Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
