Have £1,000 to invest? I’d buy these FTSE 100 dividend stocks

first_img See all posts by Jonathan Smith Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Have £1,000 to invest? I’d buy these FTSE 100 dividend stocks “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. Jonathan Smith and The Motley Fool UK have no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Having liquid cash to invest at the moment is a huge benefit. Generating some additional income from FTSE 100 dividend stocks, premium bonds, or Cash ISA’s during a looming recession makes sense. It allows investors to make their money work harder during difficult times, often when it’s most needed. Generating income from investments is also a bonus when interest rates are so low. So if you have £1,000 ready to go, where’s the best place to target? Cash ISA’s don’t carry a particularly high return, with investors being fortunate to get over 1%. Premium bonds don’t offer any guarantee of income, as payments are done on a lottery style prize draw. 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…For an income investor, it makes sense to look towards stocks. From there, I’d focus more towards established businesses. In most cases, such a company has grown to full capacity, and is paying out profits via dividends to investors. This is where you can find good value and pick up income usually on a semi-annual basis.Well connectedVodafone (LSE: VOD) is a telecommunications giant with headquarters in the UK and global operations. It’s long been a stock which has divided investors opinions on whether to buy or not. Stagnant share price growth for several years was followed by a downtrend starting in early 2018. From an average of around 230p, the share price now sits at 138p. The move lower coincided with scrapping dividend payments last year, due to heavy losses.A month ago we received the trading results for the 2020 financial year-end, which showed a much better performance. Operating profit rebounded to over €4bn. In part, this helped the business confirm that it would pay a dividend for this year. The dividend yield sits at 5.7%, comfortably above the FTSE 100 average. Given the solid performance seen, along with high free cash flow, I’d look to buy Vodafone as a FTSE 100 dividend stock.On the shopping list for dividendsA second firm I think could provide dividend opportunities is WM Morrison Supermarkets (LSE: MRW). Like Vodafone, the supermarket has committed to pay out a dividend based on the latest financial results. However, with the ex-dividend date already passed, new investors will be looking to the decision on a special dividend. The decision on whether to pay this out has been deferred for the moment.I don’t see this as a huge negative, and would buy the share for income at a dividend yield of 3.6%. Even without the special dividend, regular dividends should continue to be paid. Performance in a defensive sector like supermarkets should not be severely damaged from the pandemic.On top of the dividend income, you could also see a pick up in the share price if we see global tensions rise. Investors looking for safety could buy into the share price for protection.So with £1,000, achieving dividend yields of 3% to 6% is possible via investing in the FTSE 100. This would not only beat your savings account, but also inflation, making it a smart move for intelligent investors!center_img Jonathan Smith | Tuesday, 9th June, 2020 | More on: MRW VOD I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

A typical challenge for Belgian cities today is to make their 19th and early 20th-century urban fabric more liveable and sustainable, without driving away all economic or manufacturing activities. Most of these areas are characterized by a mix of industry and housing, high land occupation, hardening of open space, and soil pollution. Today most of the industry has moved away from these areas and the infrastructure over time has been parcelled out to small-scale private owners. “Pitting” is one of the strategies that many cities include in their urban policies for these areas, trying to avoid tabula rasa. The tmSN house does so in a radical way.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertBLAF has since long been working on the idea of the casco as a sustainable format for architecture. In this case, the casco was a given. The L-shaped plot was almost 100% occupied. The building facing the street was a house, and all the other buildings behind it were manufacturing space.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertWith surgical precision, the least valuable parts were cut away to generate light and open space on the plot. The most valuable parts were consolidated and made empty and amenable. This “pitting” operation created a small “Hinterhof”, an ideal environment for a family home. The house facing the street was refurbished as a workspace (group practice for psychiatry).Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertLike a snail in its shell, a new timber frame construction was fitted into these casco’s, making an interior space for a home. The intermediate spaces between the casco and the timber frame home generate new relations between inside and outside, helps to organize the program on the plot, and make the raw brick of the casco visible from the interior.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe open spaces that were created are used for water management and greenery.

Drop in UK bakery sales troubles Maple Leaf

first_imgPoor bakery sales in the UK have helped to cause a decline in Maple Leaf Food’s fortunes.The Canadian firm, which sells bagels here under the New York Bakery Co brand, blamed lower sales volumes in the UK bakery operations for its falling figures; sales fell to C$381.5m (£246.8m) from C$412.5m (£266.8m) in the bakery products group in the first quarter ended 31 March 2010. Maple Leaf also pointed to the impact of the stronger Canadian dollar and lower sales volumes in its North American frozen bakery operations.The company said it was taking steps to reduce the cost base in the company’s UK operations until volumes improved, while it expected the fall in North America to be transitory as new business was gradually being secured. It added that the declines in these two business units were more than offset by improved performance in its fresh bakery business.Said Michael H McCain, president and CEO: “The bakery business experienced a weaker quarter due to performance in the UK and the North American frozen bakery business. How-ever, we are seeing signs of improvement in both these areas as volumes recover and our cost reduction initiatives take hold.”He added: “This, along with price adjustments being implemented mostly in the second quarter, gives us confidence in expecting stronger margin growth and continued improvement through the remainder of 2010.”Overall sales at Maple Leaf Foods for the first quarter fell by 7% to C$1,191.5m (£770.8m) from C$1,279.3m (£827.3m) last year.last_img read more

Queen Denies Donald Trump Permission To Use ‘We Are The Champions’ At Events

first_imgRepublican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has drawn the ire of many musicians during his campaign, including Adele, The Rolling Stones and more. Even Neil Young begrudgingly allowed Trump to use “Rockin’ In The Free World,” but he had some particularly nasty things to say about Trump in the process. Now, you can add Queen to the list.After celebrating victories on Tuesday night, Trump appeared with the music “We Are The Champions” playing. The band’s guitarist and founding member Brian May said that Trump did not have or ask for permission to use the song, and should not use it going forward. May posted a statement about the song usage on his website.“I’ve had an avalanche of complaints – some of which you can see in our ‘Letters’ page – about Donald Trump using our ‘We Are The Champions’ track as his ‘theme’ song on USA TV. This is not an official Queen statement, but I can confirm that permission to use the track was neither sought nor given. We are taking advice on what steps we can take to ensure this use does not continue. Regardless of our views on Mr Trump’s platform, it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool. Our music embodies our own dreams and beliefs, but it is for all who care to listen and enjoy.”The Letters page also links to May calling Trump “unsavoury,” and shows a screenshot of someone else’s Tweet that reads “Freddie Mercury sent a cease and desist from his grave.”With the presidential race heating up, will Trump have any music to walk out to in the future?last_img read more

Leaders customize crime database

first_img “All my guys would be interested in [the] D6 [parking lot],” he said. Student body secretary Katie Baker said NDSP will distribute flyers containing the CrimeReports web address, instructions for using the site and information about the CrimeReports iPhone mobile app. “[We’re drawing] lines on the map in a way that makes sense for students and staff on campus,” Shibata said. “The parking lots are where students are the least aware of where crime is going on, but need to be the most aware,” Sokas said. Ed Mack, rector of O’Neill Hall, said the Notre Dame CrimeReports information would be useful to residents of the hall. One proposed neighborhood would include South Quad, West Quad, Carroll Hall, the Morris Inn, the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore, Main Circle and the bookstore basketball courts, she said. Other neighborhoods will include campus parking lots. Shibata said the meeting sought to analyze University maps and define neighborhoods within campus based on geographical landmarks. Doing so, she said, will provide students with access to the most relevant security information for their area of campus on the CrimeReports website. McCormick said student government was grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with CrimeReports to improve accessibility to campus safety information.center_img Student body president Pat McCormick said creating campus neighborhoods would make the CrimeReports database more user-friendly for student users. Chief of staff Claire Sokas said CrimeReports would alert students, faculty and staff about reported events occurring in their respective neighborhoods. Campus Life Council’s regular meeting was postponed Monday afternoon, as members met with Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) Sgt. Keri Kei Shibata to customize the online CrimeReports database. The customization is part of an ongoing initiative to improve interactive campus security. “Our goal was to identify the best way of utilizing CrimeReports on campus, in a way that would make sense to students based on where they live,” he said. “We also wanted to give as much information as possible in an interactive way.” “Our hope is for the system to continue advancing on campus,” he said.last_img read more
