Don’t waste the stock market crash! I’d buy FTSE 100 dividend shares for a passive income

first_imgDon’t waste the stock market crash! I’d buy FTSE 100 dividend shares for a passive income The FTSE 100’s market crash could provide an excellent opportunity for income investors to buy undervalued dividend stocks. Certainly, further declines in the index’s price level may be ahead in the near term. But in the long run, dividend growth plus high yields could lead to generous income returns.Moreover, other mainstream assets such as property, bonds, and cash appear to have unfavourable outlooks. Therefore, now may be the right time to capitalise on the market crash to buy high-yielding FTSE 100 shares.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…Relative appealWith interest rates now at an historic low, income-seekers are much more limited than they perhaps ever have been when it comes to generating a return on their capital. Savings accounts and Cash ISAs now generally offer below-inflation income returns. It’s a similar story for investment-grade bonds. This could mean your capital fails to provide a sufficient income to fund your lifestyle while interest rates are low.Similarly, the returns on buy-to-let properties could prove to be disappointing. Economic challenges facing the UK may limit rental growth. Meanwhile, tax changes over recent years could lead to a lower net return for many landlords.Dividend stocksFTSE 100 dividend stocks may, therefore, offer the most attractive income outlook over the long term. The index’s crash over recent weeks means it now offers a yield of around 6%. This is its highest ever level and, while some dividend cuts have already been announced, there are a number of companies that seem likely to maintain their income payouts in the coming months.Identifying them could be a worthwhile exercise. To achieve this goal, investors may wish to consider the operating outlook for specific businesses. For example, defensive companies operating in sectors that are relatively unreliant on the prospects for the wider economy may not experience a major fall in their profitability. Likewise, companies with dividends amply covered by profit may not feel the need to reduce their shareholder payouts in response to coronavirus.Through purchasing lower-risk FTSE 100 companies, you may not receive the highest yields in the index. Investor sentiment towards high-quality defensive companies may be stronger than it is towards riskier cyclical stocks. However, compared to other mainstream assets, obtaining a relatively resilient 4% or 5% dividend yield could be highly attractive.Return potentialAs well as their income prospects, dividend stocks also offer impressive capital growth potential. The FTSE 100’s recent crash may feel as though it will last forever. But history shows the stock market has always recovered from its various bear markets to post new record highs.Therefore, it’s possible for you to enjoy a growing portfolio over the coming years through capitalising on the FTSE 100’s recent decline. Doing so could improve your financial prospects in the long run.

3 reasons why I think Amazon shares could be a great buy for my ISA right now

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Jonathan Smith | Wednesday, 15th July, 2020 | More on: AMZN Enter Your Email Address Despite the global stock market crash in March, not all stocks have taken a hit. Certain sectors, including technology, have actually performed very well year-to-date. Take the NASDAQ exchange in America. It mostly lists technology firms, in contrast to the FTSE 100, which has a very diverse range of constituents. The NASDAQ is up around 15% this year, despite the March sell-off. Within the index, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) shares have helped lead the charge.Can I buy US shares in my ISA?The above is interesting information, but you might think this is irrelevant for a UK-based investor. This isn’t true. Not only can you easily buy Amazon shares and other US firms (think of Tesla, Apple etc), but you can put them in your ISA. Check with your provider as this isn’t a uniform statement, but many providers do allow you to hold non-UK stocks in a Stocks and Shares ISA. This is great news, as ultimately we want to find the best investing opportunities, wherever in the world it may arise. 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…Why buy Amazon shares?One reason I’m keen to add Amazon shares to my ISA is that it acts to diversify my portfolio from just UK stocks. Although it’s a truly global company, the biggest market is by far the US. Last year, almost $194bn of revenue came from the US, with the UK coming in well behind with around $17.5bn. So if the UK struggles to make a meaningful recovery from the pandemic, or manages to have a complicated divorce from the EU, then holding Amazon helps reduce my risk. My UK stocks may underperform, but Amazon shares are likely to be relatively unaffected.Further, Amazon sits in a great category of being both a defensive stock but also a growth one. This is a rare status. It’s defensive in that it’s not just a retailer but a middleman too via its marketplace offer. The powerful hold it has on the market, along with the barriers to entry, make it hard for it to lose meaningful market share. Due to pretty much any product you could want being on the marketplace, commission-based revenue from sellers will remain firm over this period. The growth stock side comes through with all of the alternative businesses also under the Amazon umbrella. It’s made advances into high-growth markets, such as online streaming (via Amazon Prime and its own studios). It also owns the streaming service Twitch. So the share price could not only be resilient during tough times, but even show high growth.A great buy even now?Amazon shares are up over 50% over the past year, and 100% in just over two years. Looking at traditional P/E ratios or debt-to-equity to assess the future value don’t work that well due to the way the technology sector works. It’s also difficult to compare it to any UK based firm to try and assess a fair price for the shares. Yet I still rate the firm as a good buy because it’s simply a one-of-a-kind business that should continue to grow due to its sheer size, plus the scope for development and innovation the business has.  Image source: Getty Images 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.

Saracens vs Western Province Highlights from Allianz Park

first_imgWednesday Nov 12, 2014 Saracens vs Western Province Highlights from Allianz Park Saracens scored six tries to sweep aside Currie Cup champions Western Province with a 46-22 victory at Allianz Park on Sunday afternoon. Highlights from the match are below, featuring a brace of tries for Sarries wingers Chris Ashton and Dave Strettle.Four first half tries laid the foundation for what turned out to be a convincing win over the newly crowned champions, who whether it’s blamed on fatigue or not, were totally outplayed. “I think their form is exceptional and they’ve carried that on from last season,” said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall when singling out Ashton and Strettle. “Week-in-week-out they deliver and they perform. Not only do they play well they score tries.” McCall said he was impressed with the way Province started the match“It was a good performance against a very good Western Province team. They came out of the blocks pretty quickly and in the first 10 minutes we were under the pump in our own 22.“We defended well in that period of time and we scored some really good tries and played some really good rugby.”Western Province coach Allister Coetzee said that the experience gained would hold them in good stead for next season’s defence of their title.“Nobody likes losing, but I really think this trip was a worthwhile experience for all of us, both on and off the field,” Coetzee said. “It wasn’t an ideal result, but it was a great occasion for the players to represent Western Province in London.“We played well in patches, but we made a few mistakes at key stages of the match and Saracens punished those silly errors. I thought there were plenty of positives, like our scrum, but it just wasn’t to be in the end.”View the post match reaction from some of the Saracens players on page two of this postCredit: Sarries Rugby TVADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a holiday that people of Mexican descent celebrate during the first couple days of November.During this holiday, celebrants remember friends and family members who have died through rituals such as creating altars, preparing and eating certain foods, praying, and visiting graveyards. The holiday reminds them that their existence on Earth is temporary. Students were invited to write down memories of loved ones who have died as part of the celebration of Day of the Dead. Photo by Renee Umsted.Traditions such as Day of the Dead are not rare in the United States. According to the 2018 TCU Fact Book, 35 students at TCU are from Mexico. In 2016, 26 percent of immigrants to the United States, 11.6 million people living in the U.S., were from Mexico, according to the Pew Research Center. Some celebrants of Day of the Dead said they hope informing people about the holiday will help connect cultures and create respect for the different traditions. The altar in Scharbauer Hall was set up to promote the idea that language and culture are intertwined and to start conversations to connect cultures and celebrations, said Karla O’Donald, an instructor in the department of Spanish and Hispanic studies. O’Donald said she hopes the altar her department made will inspire people to become curious about the culture and the Spanish language.  “I think that, again, [it] gives another opportunity for conversations that should happen, that hopefully connect people instead of dividing them,” O’Donald said.The Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Inc. created an altar on campus to give people who were interested in learning about the holiday an opportunity to do so, said Jenny Villagomez, the vice president of the organization’s local chapter and a sophomore criminal justice major. Villagomez said she thinks it is important for people unfamiliar with Day of the Dead to know about it because of the many misconceptions surrounding it. “A lot of people think it’s like our version of Halloween, but it’s definitely not that,” Villagomez said. She said that while Day of the Dead has been partly influenced by American culture, it remains a distinct holiday with its own history and purpose.

Call for investigation into police violence against journalists

first_img to go further December 4, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders deplored physical attacks by police against four journalists with América TV and Crónica TV as they were covering the use of force against civilians by police, and it asked for these incidents to be investigated.”We call for an administrative enquiry to identify the officials responsible for these attacks,” Reporters Without Borders said in a letter to justice minister Juan José Alvarez. “More that 40 journalists were physically attacked while doing their job in 2002, often by members of the police, and it is time to put an end to the impunity they enjoy,” the organisation said.Julián Sequeira and Michael Carcachi, cameramen with the programme “Puntodoc/2” of the TV channel América TV, were badly beaten by members of the Argentine Federal Police (PFA) on 25 February as they were covering the eviction of around 100 people from a building in Buenos Aires which, according to local authorities, was in danger of collapsing.Members of the anti-riot police hit Sequeira, breaking his nose, and seized the camera he was using to film them as they used violence to force their way into the building. Carcachi was attacked as he was filming a victim of the police operation. They police hit him after he had clearly identified himself as a journalist and when he was at some distance from the police operation.The police detained both cameramen as well as the programme’s producer, Maximiliano García Sola, for trying to film the incidents. They were set free at 8:30 p.m. the same day after being charged with “resisting authorities.” All three believed the aim of their arrest was to prevent pictures of the police violence from appearing on TV.The Union of Buenos Aires Press Workers (UTPBA) reported that Norberto Ortiz of the TV channel Crónica TV was seriously injured the same day by a rubber bullet that hit him near the left eye. This occurred as he was covering the dispersal by police of a demonstration outside the courthouse in Comodoro Py (Buenos Aires province) during the trial of members of Quebracho, an organisation known to carry out acts of violence during demonstrations.
