A FTSE 100 share with a 7% yield to buy now

first_img Roland Head | Tuesday, 15th June, 2021 | More on: PSN 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 A FTSE 100 share with a 7% yield to buy now Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. FTSE 100 housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN) said recently that sales this year are 23% ahead of 2020 levels, and 11% ahead of the same point in 2019. This share also offers a 7.6% dividend yield and has net cash of £850m on its balance sheet.Persimmon’s share price has risen by 36% over the last year, but I think this popular income stock remains an attractive buy.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…Is the housing market about to crash?Housebuilders have performed well over the last decade, thanks to cheap mortgages and government measures, such as Help to Buy.Many people (including me) thought the pandemic might trigger a housing slump but, so far, this hasn’t happened. The government’s Stamp Duty holiday helped to encourage people to start moving again. It seems there’s still plenty of demand for new homes.Even so, I think there’s still a risk the housing market could slow this year. The Stamp Duty holiday ends this month and Help to Buy has already been scaled back. Since April, this loan scheme has only been available to first-time buyers.It’s too soon to know how these changes will affect demand for new homes. However, one point in Persimmon’s favour is that its homes are aimed at the mainstream market, not at luxury buyers. The firm’s average selling price of £252,000 is almost an exact match for the UK average house price of £242,832 (according to Nationwide).Why does this FTSE 100 share yield 7.7%?Most housebuilders have cut their dividends over the last year or so. Persimmon hasn’t. The company has resumed shareholder payouts at pre-pandemic levels, giving a forecast yield of 7.6% for 2021. It’s the highest-yielding UK housebuilder.The reason for this is that unlike most of its rivals, Persimmon plans to pay out virtually all of its earnings as dividends. This would normally ring an alarm bells with me. For most businesses, it’s not sustainable.However, years of high profitability have left Persimmon with a big net cash position and continuing strong cash generation. My analysis suggests that if the company can maintain its profits at current levels, the current payout may well be sustainable.Will the Persimmon share price rise?Persimmon is currently one of eight FTSE 100 shares with a dividend yield of 7%, or more. That yield is more than double the FTSE 100 average of 3%, so there’s clearly something unusual here.In my view, I think the market is pricing Persimmon to suggest its dividend may not rise much further. I think that’s probably true. The company is already paying out almost all of its profits as dividends. Profit growth is expected to slow over the next couple of years, so I don’t expect Persimmon’s dividend, or its share price, to rise very quickly from now on.Despite this, I’m still comfortable buying Persimmon shares. With a starting dividend yield of 7.6%, I don’t need much share price growth to achieve my target of a 10% annual return on my investment.I think this FTSE 100 share should continue to deliver big dividends for the foreseeable future. I’m happy to sit back and continue collecting the income. 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.

Queen Mary, University of London joins the thankQ University elite

first_imgQueen Mary delivers world class degree programmes and research across 21 academic departments and institutes. In recognition of the university’s success to date, Queen Mary was recently invited to join the prestigious Russell Group of universities, cementing its status amongst the higher education elite.To ensure Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL) optimises its position within the Russell Group, ambitious investment plans have been put in place to further develop educational, research and estate capabilities, along with the development of a sophisticated alumni and stakeholder network, including comprehensive records and a programme of activities to maintain and nurture contacts, including details of over 120,000 alumni.QMUL has recently established a Development Directorate which will incorporate Alumni Relations and Fundraising teams. To date there has been no single data-set where donation and supporter information can be accessed and so the university has also selected thankQ CRM and alumni software to bring coherence to its development operations. Advertisement Tagged with: ThankQ thankQ’s ease of use was a major contributing factor to the purchasing decision. In choosing thankQ, QMUL recognised the urgent need to provide the development team with easy access to information required to plan, manage and achieve their strategic objectives, as well as putting a system in place that would keep pace with the ongoing development and increased sophistication of its  fundraising activities.To this end, Queen Mary took the opportunity to not only purchase a comprehensive thankQ CRM, fundraising and alumni relations system, but also enhanced features and modules that will facilitate and integrate web, telethon, social media, bulk email and mobile campaigns with the thankQ database.Andy Wood, Director of Development at Queen Mary said of the decision to purchase thankQ, ‘We are looking forward to joining a number of other UK universities as a thankQ client. Their solution, aside from the technical excellence and value of the product, will quickly allow us to better utilise our data in support of our strategic objectives in both fundraising and alumni/stakeholder engagement. I’m pleased to say that the decision to select thankQ was a unanimous one.’ Howard Lake | 19 February 2013 | News  104 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1  103 total views,  1 views today Queen Mary, University of London joins the thankQ University elite About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Indiana Conservation at a Crossroads

first_imgHome News Feed Indiana Conservation at a Crossroads Facebook Twitter SHARE The current county district structure was established over 70 years ago, and the report says it is time for a new structure and revised focus. But the analysis admits there will likely be resistance to change on the local level as SWCD employees fear for their jobs and county officials fear a loss of local control.  Several of the board members said the change must be locally driven and that state dollars should be used as an incentive to encourage change. Others expressed concern that change could come too slowly to avoid a loss of services as funding continues to decline. Comments will be taken from local districts over the next year before a final plan is adopted.Read the task force report here.

Soil board member Bob Eddleman says the watershed approach is a better way to deliver conservation services, “Watershed planning looks at what the natural resources are like today and what do we want them to look like in 10 years, and what do we have to change to get to that point.” He told HAT taking a watershed approach to conservation is a much more effective and efficient way to deliver conservation services. By Gary Truitt – Aug 22, 2012 Larry ClemensThe Indiana Soil and Water Conservation Board has released a study that proposes major changes in the way conservation programs are funded and managed. After a year of study, a task force report is recommending some major changes in the way soil and water conservation districts are structured and funded.  Soil Board Chairman Larry Clemens says continued cuts in funding are forcing the change, “Change is already happening with a decline in local, state, and federal funds.” The Clean Water Indiana program is funded by the Indiana Cigarette Tax. With fewer and fewer people smoking, tax revenue has been declining about 4% per year on average.   He added many counties have been cutting back on funding for local SWCDs. This has resulted in cutbacks in staff and in reduced services. The report projects this trend will only get worse in the years to come. Indiana Conservation at a Crossroads The report, which was presented to the State Soil Board on Monday, recommends county districts begin to work collaboratively to address conservation on a regional basis.  Clemens said this is already beginning to happen, “We have seen this with our Clean Water Indiana grants that are being used by districts to partner with other counties on regional projects and programs.”  He said the board will continue to use these grants to provide financial incentives to county organizations to work together.  The report recommended that local SWCD leaders begin to educate county officials on the benefits of approaching conservation on a regional basis and sharing resources with neighboring counties.

Cold Adds Dry Down Complications to Hoosier Harvest

It has been very wet this week and there are a few drier days coming, but chief meteorologist Ryan Martin says the dry conditions won’t last long enough.“We don’t have enough time for drying in between our upcoming weather events, so we’re definitely cold here to finish out the week and go through the weekend,” Martin said. “Temperatures are well below normal and we saw snow on Halloween for the first time in a while. Last time that happened was 2014. But we are not going to see drying happening at an exceptionally fast pace just because of the cold air that’s in for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We will see temperatures moderate a little on Monday, but that’s going to be ahead of our next front.”He says the next ten days in Indiana bring the complications of three different weather systems.“The first one comes Tuesday, giving us from .2 to .8 of an inch across 80 percent of Indiana, and there is maybe a 12 hour break between that one and the next one that shows up on Thursday, continuing into Friday that gives us ¾ to two inches of rain combined over the region. That’s much wetter than what we had been seeing earlier in the week. And once we get to the 11th into the 12th we’ve got rain coming back, a half to and inch and a quarter, 100 percent of Indiana getting coverage.”It is now November and Martin says the colder temperatures are becoming a real problem for crop dry down.“In between the systems that come through we do shut the moisture off quite cleanly and we get good sunshine in between as well,” he explained. “But you have to look at temperatures. We are now moving into a time of year where our temperature averages continue to go down. That colder air cannot hold as much moisture as warm air, so that means we cannot dry the crop as fast.”Combine the bigger rains and cooler temperatures, and farmers are looking at a lot of waiting on harvest operations all the way through to the middle of the month.The harvest forecast is made possible by First Farmers Bank and Trust, proud to support Indiana farmers, by Kokomo grain, and by Seed Genetics Direct, a family-owned company meeting the corn, wheat, soybean, alfalfa and herbicide needs of Corn Belt farmers.

Raids on three opposition media as pro-European protests dispersed

first_img to go further Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority Receive email alerts UkraineEurope – Central Asia September 7, 2020 Find out more Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Reporters Without Borders condemns today’s raids on three Kiev-based opposition media by unidentified armed individuals dressed like members of Ukraine’s Special Forces, and appeals to all sides for calm and respect for journalists.“The raids on the offices of the newspaper Vechirni Visti, the online TV station INTV and the news website Cenzor.net were serious violations of freedom of information and Ukraine’s constitutional guarantees,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They not only forced the targeted media to suspend operations and trampled on the confidentiality of their sources but also sent a very clear intimidatory signal to all other Ukrainian media.“We urge the Ukrainian authorities to shed light on these raids, which were carried out in an outrageous and clearly illegal manner. If it is confirmed that the Special Forces were responsible, the competent authorities must explain their actions and be held accountable for these grave violations.”The raids on the three news media took place at around 6 p.m. today, as riot police began to disperse the thousands of participants in the pro-European Union protest movement known as “Euromaidan,” who have been demonstrating in the capital for days. The men who carried out the raids wore helmets and uniforms similar to those used by the “Berkut” Special Forces. Some also wore masks. The three targeted news media, which support Yulia Tymoshenko’s opposition Fatherland party, have had record numbers of readers and viewers since the protests began.“The attackers did not introduce themselves or show any warrant,” Cenzor.net editor Yuri Butusov told Reporters Without Borders by telephone. “They ordered all our staff to move away from their computers and to not use their mobile phones. Then they confiscated all our equipment. It was a criminal raid designed to eliminate a site that has been carrying information about the ‘Euromaidan’ movement.”Employees at INTV and Vechirni Visti gave similar descriptions of the raids on their news organizations although they reported that the attackers referred vaguely to “ongoing investigations.” The attackers removed computer equipment and servers which contained these news media’s databases and which allowed them to connect to the Internet. Documents were also seized at Vechirni Visti. Shortly before the raids, armed men stormed the Fatherland party’s headquarters.The websites of several leading news media, including the Kyiv Post English-language daily, were inaccessible during these operations, presumably as a result of denial-of-service attacks.Reporters Without Borders previously condemned the beatings that around 50 journalists received when the first major opposition demonstrations in Kiev were dispersed at the end of November and in the first few days of December.(Photo: Sergei Supinsky / AFP) News Help by sharing this information Newscenter_img RSF_en February 26, 2021 Find out more UkraineEurope – Central Asia News March 26, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Ukraine News December 9, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Raids on three opposition media as pro-European protests dispersed Organisation last_img read more

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness By admin – March 25, 2018 Twitter Facebook Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp >> Jeff Werner is a software engineer and has been writing this column since 2007. Q: Question 1 – Windows 10 Version 1709 failed to update on my computer. I checked the Update History and it attempted to update several times but failed. I attempted to run the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to fix the issue, but no luck. In the meantime my HP DeskJet 932C stopped working with Windows 10. I tried to install and reinstall the printer and drivers. No luck. I ran the Troubleshoot for the printer. See attachments. I also made sure I had a good USB printer cable which is connected to a 2.0 USB slots (3) in the back of the computer. The 3.0 USB slots are located in the front of my computer (2). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.– Mac M.Valparaiso, FloridaA: Windows Feature Update version 1709 is the Fall Creators Update, Mac. If you can’t get it to install, the troubleshooting steps are pretty much the same as they are for many other updates that won’t install. They include deleting the Windows Update folder to ensure whatever is stuck gets removed. Also, downloading and installing the update manually, which it sounds like you might already have tried. If neither of these work, troubleshooting starts getting into steps that attempt to repair corruption of the Windows files, or on your drive itself. Most of this is way too complex to fit within the confines of my column, but I’m happy to point you to a place on the web that doesn’t have such limitations. Just visit TinyURL.com/IGTM-0557A, and follow the instructions. Watch out for the ads while you’re in there – some of them look like they part of the troubleshooting steps to try and trick you into clicking them.As for your printer, it’s always a little difficult to offer advice on specific models of hardware that I don’t use. However, despite all the other issues that I have with HP, I will say that they have a very comprehensive online support area for their products. Through it, I found that HP says your printer is indeed compatible with Windows 10, and that the driver that downloads through the regular Windows Update mechanism should be all you need to get it working. At that point, it gets a little foggy. If you click into the pages a little farther, you’ll find that when HP points you to the “Windows Update driver” it means there is not a driver available directly from HP. Their comment for that situation reads as follows: “If a driver is not available from HP, you might be able to print from USB using the Add Hardware feature in Windows 10.” I don’t much like their use of the word “might.” It kind of sounds like they’re not sure if it will work or not. For your case, unless we know otherwise, let’s assume that it will.One thing I find interesting in your question is the apparent disparity of USB versions on your PC. You say you have the printer plugged into a USB 2.0 port (the ones on the back of your printer) yet the error dialog you sent me says “USB Printing Support can’t work properly with USB 3.0.” So, either something is wrong with the troubleshooter itself, or you’re mistaken about which of your computer’s USB ports are v2.0 and which are v3.0. It’s also possible that you have an issue with the loaded USB drivers that is causing the troubleshooter to misidentify them as v3.0. In reading online, I’ve seen several instances where HP claims all of their printers are compatible with USB 3.0. Unfortunately, my own experience, and the evidence of hordes of none-too-happy HP printer owners would seem to indicate otherwise. So, this Geek says that despite HP’s claims, you do require a working v2.0 port to operate your printer.My advice is to get the base operating system upgrade working first. If you don’t, you may find that when you do get it working that it breaks your printer all over again. The opposite may also be true. You might just find that your printer problems don’t exist anymore once the upgrade is in place. Finally, I’m assuming that the troubleshooter you ran is the one that’s already on your system. Visit TinyURL.com/IGTM-0557B for a troubleshooter that’s meant to help with printer problems after updating of upgrading to Windows 10.To view additional content, comment on articles, or submit a question of your own, visit my website at ItsGeekToMe.co (not .com!)
