3 FTSE 100 stocks I think can increase their dividends now

first_img 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.

Image source: Getty Images. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Enter Your Email Address I like to divide my investment portfolio between FTSE 100 growth and income stocks. My growth stocks have shown healthy growth over the past year, thanks to the stock market rally. But my income stocks have disappointed. This is partly because companies cut back on dividends during the pandemic. And partly because the dividend amounts are less than they were pre-pandemic. But I am optimistic that this can change now for at least oil and banking stocks. Both sectors are closely linked to the economy. And the economy is showing clear signs of picking up. The UK economy showed monthly growth of 2.3% in April as the second stage of lockdown easing kicked in. This is the sharpest growth in eight months. 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…Oil biggies can make gainsIncreasing demand in the economy has been evident in rising oil prices as well. We have seen this since the start of 2021. But it became glaringly obvious this past week as oil prices reached a two-year high. FTSE 100 oil companies BP and Royal Dutch Shell will continue to be gainers from this trend. Both of them saw improved recent results because of higher prices. Additionally, as the pandemic recedes further and travel can ease more, oil demand will increase further. Whichever way I look at it, oil companies stand to gain. I think this could prompt them to increase their dividends too, which were cut back last year. I hold both stocks because of the generous dividends I earned in the past and their long-term dividend history. And now, I am hopeful that they will increase again, unless the pandemic either forces travel restrictions again or extends existing restrictions for a longer time. Banks can increase dividendsNext, I am hopeful that at some point this year, banks will be in a position to increase their dividends. So far, their dividends have been subject to stringent regulation. Last year, as the stock market crash happened, the Bank of England’s (BoE) Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) asked them to withhold dividends. By the end of the year, as the vaccines were developed and the overall environment started to look better, they were allowed to resume dividend payments. However, these have been subject to significant constraints based on their loans profile. As a result, so far their dividend yields are quite low. Not even one FTSE 100 bank has a yield higher than 2%.But this too, can change. The PRA has said the present constraints are temporary. With sure signs of a pick up in the economy, the BoE’s own bullish estimates for economic growth in 2021, and improved results across the sector, I think banks will be free to pay higher dividends sooner rather than later. I particularly like Lloyds Bank from a passive income perspective. It had the highest dividend yield pre-pandemic across banks. Moreover, as a UK-centric bank, I think it is best placed to gain from the economic recovery. On the flip-side, it could suffer if the recovery falters or if loan repayments become weak. But I think that risk is small. I would consider it from a long-term perspective. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Rugby sevens spotlight on: Collins Injera

first_imgInjera, who has worked as a salesman in the past and has a degree in PR, sees the benefits of a group pulling together. He insists they have no “magical players”, although he and brother Humphrey Kayange have played a large role in marching Kenyan sevens upwards and demonstrating they have true quality. What he does concede is that a first-ever World Series triumph in Singapore has given the people of the country something to cheer. Forget the casual celebrity of it all, it was necessary in order to show kids what is possible.“We needed to believe in our system and create a real bond between the players. We have so many new boys in the set-up this season that we had to pull everyone together. We’ve had training camps at altitude, in the Nandi Hills, and have done plenty of activities together like mountain hikes. But that win helped us bond.“When we got back home to Kenya, everyone was talking about rugby. That could be good for youngsters. In the past, all people have known Kenya for is track and field at the Olympics but that was big – something to remember forever. It also shows we have something huge (with the Olympics coming up). The dream, a few years from now, is to wake up and see professional rugby as a reality for our players. So much of it is about getting the proper resources for us. To wake up and just play rugby? I want young boys to enjoy the funds of a sport we all love.”“We’ve had guys whose bosses have not allowed them to get away. I’m lucky that my boss is a huge supporter of Kenya rugby.”Just getting away from the big city to meet up is a big thing for the Kenya Sevens squad, and time spent abroad can help broaden horizons in terms of seeing different rugby styles. Since his debut in 2007, Injera has been a standout star for the side, but he has also improved markedly. Hence how he surpassed Santiago Gomez Cora’s try record. However, for some sevens sides, even competing on the yearly circuit is a triumph of teamwork over logistics. “Some guys in our team have to leave home at 4am so we can all make it to training for 6am,” says Kenya’s Collins Injera, the all-time top try-scorer on the HSBC Sevens World Series with 235.“It’s tricky to get people to training during the week. Some are students and most work. I’m lucky I work in public service, so I can get the time off. You’ve really got to have people who are understanding because you’re away for two weeks at a time, which is massive.“We got the huge rewards after winning a series leg in Singapore, but we still needed understanding people. When we got back, guys had to catch up on their studies – some miss exam periods – and we’ve had guys whose bosses have not allowed them to get away. I’m lucky that my boss is a huge supporter of Kenya rugby.” That may sound like he is incredibly singular, but he is insistent on giving back to his squad. He is more than just a figurehead; going further, Kenyan rugby is so much more than a pair of exciting brothers in Injera and Kayange. A new generation is coming through, being nurtured and nudged by the veterans, but also getting used to competing for honours. Olympic dreams are earned the tough way. Training for the ultimate multi-sport, summer showcase comes at a cost measured in buckets of sweat and galleries of pained faces. Brothers in arms: Collins Injera and Humphrey Kayange have long been the protagonists of Kenyan rugby For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here and find out how to download the digital edition here.center_img At the time he broke the record at Twickenham in May, Injera said: “I’ve played this sport since high school and when I started out I wanted to go for the record.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Record holder: Collins Injera is the highest try scorer in World Series history with 235 Much of the chat about Injera during the Olympics will revolve around two facts. The first, of course, is his record try-scoring feats on an ever-expanding and ever-improving sevens circuit. The second is that at Twickenham last year he scored a try, whipped a permanent marker pen out of his sock and signed a camera lens, accidentally destroying a bit of equipment worth £60,000. Woopsy, you may say.These titbits are both true but as the flyer describes the toil to get to training facing his team-mates from outside of Nairobi, the desire to bring everyone together and show them their worth, or the dream of a new era of professional sport for his younger compatriots, it is hard to see Collins Injera as a man defined by numbers – be they pounds or tries.“Coming into this season we knew it would be huge – it has been for everyone,” Injera says to finish this post-training chat. It could have been an opening line, it could be a PR slogan for the Sevens World Series. But there is also a sense of ‘more to come’.It is almost a promise that the Games in Rio will be the thrilling conclusion to a sevens season where everything has impressed. That includes Kenya – the ultimate surprise package.last_img read more

Six Nations tweets of the week: Sam Underhill, Teddy Thomas and TMOs

first_imgRegardless of the result, this bounce of the ball for Teddy Thomas was magical!#bbcsixnations— BBC Rugby Union (@bbcrugbyunion) February 11, 2018The result was of little significance to these two rugby fans, though. Their love affair goes back 50 years after first meeting at a rugby game: It wasn’t all plane sailing for the Scots as Finn Russell struggled to settle into his kicking game. This didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter, including this tweet from former England centre Will Greenwood: Ireland won’t have enjoyed seeing Robbie Henshaw, who also contributed a brace of tries, go off injured, but his exit made way for Jordan Larmour‘s debut appearance: In the second match of the weekend a try double from Jonny May put England ahead and they had to fight hard to come out with a 12-6 victory.A brilliant offload from Launchbury set up May’s second try: Launchury received a lot of praise on Twitter for his performance after the game, including this message from former England prop David Flatman: Once again people turned to Twitter to express their disbelief: We’ve rounded up the best of social media from the second round of the 2018 Six Nations Another moment of the match, was that try-saving tackle by Sam Underhill: Scotland also failed to contain Teddy Thomas, who was once again on fire with two tries in the first 30 minutes. For the second one he seemed to be able to control the bounce of the ball to take it away from Laidlaw: The main talking point of the game, however, was the much debated TMO call. In the 22nd minute, with the score at 12-0, Gareth Anscombe was denied a try by the TMO on the basis that the ball hadn’t been clearly grounded.It caused much debate on social media and it’s probably fair to say the whole of Wales disagreed with the TMO’s decision, including Wales internationals: Although Billy Vunipola had a different opinion: The final fixture of the weekend was a ding-dong affair between Scotland and France. Scotland came from behind to see off France 32-26 at Murrayfield, where Greig Laidlaw took centre stage: The best Six Nations tweets of the weekOnce again we’ve trawled through Twitter to bring you the best Six Nations tweets of the week from the second week of the 2018 championship.The opening match of the round saw Ireland host Italy – and it rained tries in Dublin. Ireland had secured the bonus point by half-time and went on to run in eight converted tries by the final whistle. However, they also conceded three tries in the second half on the way to their 56-19 victory.Aer Lingus appreciated the take off of the first of Jacob Stockdale’s two tries: Whilst all this was going on, Danny Care was quietly becoming England’s most-capped scrum-half: LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The position of the structure, installation and internal organisation of the flats with the backbone service stripe enables the internal flexibility – the diverse set of room distribution either as one large unified space or a set of smaller rooms.

Nanguang, a company operated by state agencies, published a propaganda leaflet accusing him of helping to organise the protests.“Huang already served a five-year prison sentence, from 2000 to 2005, for articles he had posted online,” the press freedom organisation said. “He does not organise workers’ rallies, he just covers them on his website. We call on the Chinese authorities to stop this harassment.”The authorities have accused Huang of illegally leading and supporting retired employees of the Chengdu-based company Nanguang who regularly demonstrate to demand payment of their pensions. “I am a human rights activist and the Nanguang workers deserve to be talked about by me on my site,” Huang said.The bureau of commerce leaflet also claims that the Nanguang workers have links with foreign organisations and journalists working for the US-based Radio Free Asia. Workers are singled out as anti-communist activists, which means they are under constant threat of arrest.Huang was arrested at his Chengdu home on 3 June 2000 for posting articles about the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre on his website, which was moved to a server in the United States after being banned in China. Indicted in January 2001 for “subversion” and “incitement to overthrow the state authority,” he finally received a five-year sentence in May 2003. After being freed on 5 June 2005, he said he was mistreated while in prison.Reporters Without Borders awarded him its Cyber-Freedom Prize in 2004.

Five women presenters resign from Al Jazeera

first_imgNews QatarMiddle East – North Africa RSF denounces Malaysia’s harassment of Al Jazeera journalists RSF_en to go further Reporters Without Borders is disturbed to learn that five women journalists have resigned as presenters from the Qatar-based satellite TV station Al Jazeera as a result of a dispute with the management over various issues including their attire.“The dispute is a deep-seated one,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The religious dimension that has taken hold at Al Jazeera is the main reason for the decision by the five presenters to resign en masse.”Three of the departing presenters (Jumana Nammour, Lina Zahr Al-Deen and Jullinar Mousa) are Lebanese. One is Syrian (Luna Al-Shibil) and one is Tunisian (Nawfar Afli).According to the daily Al-Hayat, they resigned last week after complaining of repeated comments and criticism by a member of the management about their attire, which was considered insufficiently conservative.Al Jazeera’s management has refused to comment on the resignations but it insists that the station is not pro-Islamist and that it “covers the news in a balanced manner.”The station’s outspoken style of coverage has revolutionised the Arab world’s media since its launch in 1996. But it has been fiercely criticised in Washington, where it is accused of acting as the mouthpiece of extremist groups, and it has been banned in Iraq since 2004.

Barry Hall of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau said. A motive for the attack was unclear. Mirzayan and the woman were not believed to have known one another.A car belonging to a stabbing suspect who was fatally shot during an encounter with deputies is seen in the 2400 block of Figueroa Drive in Altadena on Jan. 10, 2021.
