Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As we begin the new decade, the outlook for savers remains quite dire. Currently, the top easy-access cash ISA rate is just 1.35%, which is lower than the rate of inflation.That said, if you’re willing to take on a little risk, there are ways to generate a much higher return on your money. Here, I’ll explain how it’s possible to generate a yield of 5% and higher, tax-free, on your money, by investing in dividend-paying companies within a Stocks and Shares ISA.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…Boost your wealth with dividendsDividends are cash payments that companies pay to their shareholders on a regular basis, out of profits. Not all pay dividends (high-growth companies often prefer to reinvest their profits). But here in the UK, plenty do.For example, well-known FTSE 100 companies such as Royal Dutch Shell, Lloyds Banking Group, Legal & General Group, and GlaxoSmithKline, all pay their shareholders dividends on a regular basis.Generous payoutsYou’d be surprised just how generous many UK companies are when it comes to rewarding their shareholders with dividends. Compared to Cash ISA and savings accounts interest rates, the dividend yields offered by many FTSE 100 companies are amazing.For example, Shell paid its shareholders dividends of $1.88 per share last year which, at the current share price and exchange rate, equates to a yield of 6.4% – nearly five times the top Cash ISA rate. Similarly, Legal & General paid out 16.4p per share in dividends, which equates to a yield of 5.3% at the current share price (analysts expect a higher payout of 17.5p per share for the year that just passed). Meanwhile, Lloyds currently has a yield of 5% and GlaxoSmithKline yields 4.5%.There are plenty of FTSE 100 stocks that have higher dividend yields too – for example, Aviva currently yields 7.1%, while tobacco giant Imperial Brands yields a colossal 11%. Easy moneyBut if we keep things simple for now and just consider Shell, Lloyds, Legal & General and Glaxo (which I view as four pretty solid dividend stocks), you’re looking at an average dividend yield of around 5.3% – nearly four times the top Cash ISA rate.Split £10,000 across these four stocks, in a Stocks and Shares ISA, and you’re looking at dividends of more than £500 per year, tax-free. When you consider that £10K in the top Cash ISA is only going to pay you £135 for the year, £500+ in income from dividend stocks is a pretty good deal, in my view.Risks to considerOf course, there are risks to be aware of. For starters, when you invest in shares, your capital is at risk. Share prices move up and down, meaning you might not get back what you invested.Each company has its own unique risks to consider. Given the volatility of stocks, it’s generally recommended you invest in shares for at least five years. Secondly, dividends are not guaranteed. If a company’s profits fall, the dividend can be reduced, or even cut.However, when you consider the kind of income stream you could potentially build from a diversified portfolio of dividend stocks, the risks of investing in dividend stocks are very much worth it, in my view. Edward Sheldon, CFA | Friday, 3rd January, 2020 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.last_img read more

Giving Campaign launches “Crap Christmas Gift Amnesty”

Yet 55% of them would rather the money spent on these gifts was donated to charity. The Giving Campaign, the national initiative to boost charitable giving in the UK, has humorously set up the “Crap Christmas Gift Amnesty” and encourages everyone to give a donation to charity instead of buying unwanted presents.According to the survey by Tickbox.net, examples of some of the truly unwanted Christmas presents from colleagues included a bag of Bombay Mix, a hole-punch, a tape of line dancing music, a packet of condoms, a bottle of Tipp-ex, and a tartan wig. When asked what they did with these unwanted gifts, 42% said they gave them to charity shops, 26% gave them to someone else, and 8% chucked them in the bin.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The survey is based on 2,272 adult respondents to a questionnaire posted on Tickbox.net during November 2003.Phillip Mind, Director of The Giving Campaign said: “At Christmas, we support charity very generously – giving twice as much as during other months in the year – but the bottom line is that we could be doing a lot more. If all the money wasted on these gifts was donated to charity using Gift Aid, it could mean an extra £180 million for good causes”.To illustrate just what a difference the Crap Christmas Gift Amnesty could make, The Giving Campaign has put together an Advent Calendar of Crap Gifts, revealing what the money could achieve if spent on good causes. Click on a gift and you’ll be told how you could have spent the same amount of money on a good cause. For example, a pack of Bombay mix costs about £1; £1 could clear a square metre of a minefield. A 12-pack of condoms costs about £4; £4 could help pay to keep a helpline open for an hour. A hole punch costs about £5; £5 could be used to supply 80 litres of vital purified water overseas.last_img read more

New digital agency will bring skills from commercial sector to charity clients

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis21 Tagged with: Digital Campfire Marketing and Mind Orchard have teamed up to create a new digital marketing agency MO Campfire that will provide charities with the latest digital skills.MO Campfire will bring the skills used with blue-chip commercial clients such as Lego (pictured), BBC, ITV and Bacardi directly into the charity sector.Campfire is already an established fully integrated agency working across the sector with clients including World Vision, Centrepoint, Alzheimer’s Society, English Heritage, and Wood Green. It operates across all channels, increasingly developing DRTV using co-creation techniques with supporters. However, with nearly half of TV viewers are also active online whilst viewing TV, according to Campfire, it has partnered with Mind Orchard to create Campfire MO as an additional digital specialist arm, to provide leading edge skills for developing engaging supporter experiences. This includes apps, microsites, gaming development and digital innovation.An example of its approach is a new microsite developed for RNIB lottery, built on the back of large scale user experience testing to ensure that the site is also optimised for conversion. This was launched with a new brand, supporter journey and microsite and went live at the end of last year with good results already being seen according to the agency.Paul Handley, CEO of Campfire Marketing, said:“Currently many charities are behind the curve in digital innovation. In addition, charities often find it hard to engage with younger generations, yet these younger profiles are prepared to invest hours in mobile gaming products. It feels logical to bring in new techniques and explore new ways to engage the public.“I believe that the latest digital engagement techniques from the commercial sector can help drive a step change in the charity sector. Our new MO Campfire digital business is the perfect complement to Campfire Marketing’s integrated skill set.”  147 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 17 January 2019 | News  148 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis21last_img read more

TCU cancels homecoming parade

Linkedin Out of options: Voters consider third party candidates Meagan is a sports broadcasting major and journalism minor. She is a member of the TCU Swim Team. You can normally find her at any TCU sporting event. Meagan Thompsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/meagan-thompson/ + posts Twitter Students represent spirit of Cowtown in TCU Homecoming Parade. Friday, Oct.2, 2015 Facebook Meagan Thompson Commentary: Dealing with my reflection – Female student athletes and body image Applause for Richard Sherman defending the stress of student athlete lifecenter_img Facebook printFloats, music, community and tradition typically make up the homecoming weekend, but this year, the annual homecoming parade won’t be a part of the festivities.TCU Director of Student Activities Kim Turner said there are too many “key scheduling conflicts” preventing the parade from happening.“In light of numerous conflicts related to the parade time, TCU is taking a year off from the homecoming parade in 2016,” Turner said.Typically, during TCU’s homecoming parade, the streets around campus are lined with students, families and alumni waiting to watch TCU’s various organizations represent themselves.“A majority of the organizations that build floats for the parade would be unable to participate in the 2016 parade due to traditional family or philanthropy events that occur at the same time,” Turner said.Among those who helped build a float for past parades is Chi Omega member Emily Scharlach.“It’s a little disappointing for us because I remember making the float my freshman year and it was a great time to get to know other freshmen in my sorority,” Scharlach said. “It makes me sad for the current new members because they don’t get to have those same memories.”Other students who have participated in past homecoming parades have expressed similar feelings about the event being canceled.“Working on the floats with my Delta Gamma sisters is such a great bonding experience and it’s unfortunate that the new members won’t get to attend the parade,” Delta Gamma member Natalie Stephens said.TCU’s homecoming weekend will still be filled with plenty of events for students and Frog fans.A Pep Rally and FrogFest will take place from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Campus Commons. TCU women’s volleyball plays SMU at 6:30 p.m. in the University Recreation Center and TCU women’s soccer plays Austin Peay State University at 7:00 p.m. at Garvey-Rosenthal Stadium.These events will showcase some of the groups, such as the TCU Marching Band, that Frog fans would normally see at the homecoming parade.“It was communicated to us that it had been canceled, so we made the necessary adjustments in our calendar. We will still be there for the Pep Rally that night,” Director of Bands Bobby R. Francis said.TCU has not announced if there will be a homecoming parade in 2017.The decision for the 2017 homecoming parade will be made “with input from students, student leaders, and event staff,” Turner said.  Meagan Thompsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/meagan-thompson/ TAGStext only Meagan Thompsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/meagan-thompson/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Linkedin Meagan Thompsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/meagan-thompson/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Previous article17th imported case of Zika in Tarrant County; no local transmissionNext articleAnjelah Johnson returns to TCU Meagan Thompson RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Paddy Power to give evidence in poker player case

Mr Carr claims he won the money at a poker tournament in April 2010 and, as people knew he had the money, he had given it to a friend for safe keeping.Having failed at the District Court to have the money returned, Paul Carr is now objecting to a Circuit Court application to have the money forfeit to the State.The money was seized after gardai searched the house under the misuse of drugs act, but no drugs were found at the address.In his previous applications, Mr Carr told the courts that he came second in a Paddy Power poker tournament at the Burlington Hotel in April 2010 and the money was part of his €300,000 prize.Counsel for the State, John O’Sullivan, told last week’s sitting of the Circuit court that he wanted to call the betting agent as a witness to hear evidence relating to the tournaments hosted by Paddy Power.The matter was adjourned to the next sitting of the circuit court on January 15.last_img read more

Police: ‘Operation Graduation’ deterred underage drinking

Steve LeSueur said. “The purpose was for everybody to be safe. We really think the advertising, that really helped.”In addition to the Odessa Police Department, police agencies participating in the yearly operation include the Ector County Sheriff’s Office, the Ector County Hospital District, the University of Texas of the Permian Basin and the Ector County Independent School District.In the county, from Thursday through Sunday, the sheriff’s office reported writing eight minor in possession tickets and one furnishing alcohol to a minor ticket. Deputies also reported investigating four noise complaints and two complaints about juveniles.Odessa police also announced plans to enforce a city ordinance passed last year that enabled officers to issue civil citations if they determine that the adults knowingly allow minors to drink.LeSueur said officers did not write any tickets under the new social host ordinance but believed it worked as a deterrent.The Permian Basin Regional Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse also participated in a media campaign warning of the operation.“Just the word of mouth helped keep a lot of parties from beginning,” ECISD Lt. Jeff Daniels said. Facebookcenter_img Pinterest Ector County Independent School District Police Department Lt. Jeff Daniels talks to the crowd.
