Has Burberry Group got what it takes to resume its dividend payments? Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The stock market has been very volatile in recent months due to the coronavirus crisis. Therefore, many investors might look to invest in stable dividend stocks that would provide predictable income. Burberry Group (LSE: BRBY) is an iconic global household name in the world of fashion. It has been paying a dividend for more than 10 years.But with the recent pandemic, sales fell 3% to £2.6bn after it was forced to close the majority of its stores in mainland China in February. There were significant declines in store visitors that remained open and operated with reduced hours.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…Burberry stock is currently trading at £14 at the time of this writing. This is 40% below its all-time high in January this year.Burberry Group: going back to the fundamentalsThe debt-to-equity ratio has also increased from 4.5% to 28% at the end of 2019. The good news is that it has £929 million in cash, which is well above its debt level. Burberry Group has cancelled its final dividend payment this year to shore up cash as sales plunged 27% in its fourth quarter. And there will be significant pressure on the luxury consumer for months ahead.There are some metrics we can look at to assess whether Burberry can resume its dividend payments in the future. If you are an income investor and want to buy Burberry Group for its dividend, you should always find out whether its dividend is reliable and sustainable. There is no point in buying a stock if its dividend is regularly being cut or is not reliable. Therefore, we should always check whether the company’s earning is growing since dividends are typically paid from company’s earnings. Burberry has had a steady growth of 3.4% earnings per share in the past five years on average, which is in line with the industry norm.The payout ratioWe should also pay attention to the payout ratios, which indicates how much dividends are being paid out from its earnings. Burberry Group paid out 49% of its profit as dividends last year. This is a medium payout level that leaves enough capital to reinvest back into the business for future growth. It also leaves room for future increases of dividends payout.Growing dividendOne other important metric to look at is its historical dividend growth rate. Burberry Group has delivered an average of 13% increase annually in its dividend in the past ten years. This is a good indication of potential future dividend growth as we can see while earnings are growing, the company is rewarding its shareholders accordingly.Buy the dipHas Burberry Group got what it takes to resume its dividend payments? Earnings per share have been growing moderately in the past five years, and Burberry’s payout ratio was less than half its earnings. This suggests the company is investing in growth. Burberry is an iconic and internationally recognised brand with loyal customers especially in Asia. Burberry Group’s revenue and profit margin will suffer in the short term. But when the pandemic is over and retail operations are back to normal, I believe it will reinstate its dividends.Now presents the opportunity to buy retail shares while the company is still trading at a good discount from its all-time high. Retailers will benefit from pent-up demand after months of lockdown and shoppers will be excited to return to stores as long as there are appropriate social distancing measures and hygiene practices in place. Furthermore, over 40% of Burberry Group’s revenue generates from Asia-Pacific region. Recent news indicates that China’s economic recovery is showing signs of improvement, which is great news for the company and shareholders. Image source: Getty Images.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Stuart Lancaster with Chris Robshaw (Getty Images) Moquet was a teenager who was captured by the Nazis during the Second World War and would later become a symbol of the French resistance.One of the reasons for that was a letter he wrote to his parents just before he was executed by the Germans. In it he said his goodbyes and begged them to be strong.“My darling Mummy, my adored brother, my much loved Daddy, I am going to die! What I ask of you, especially you Mummy, is to be brave. I am, and I want to be, as brave as all those who have gone before me,” begins the letter.>>> France can thrive with English styleLaporte’s hope was to inspire his team and fire them up to give everything for their country, as Moquet had done more than 60 years earlier.Instead the player reading the letter is believed to have become so overcome with emotion that he burst into tears, and rather than getting the team up for the game, the French completely lost their focus.Up against an Argentine side which posed a greater threat than that of Fiji on Friday, France fell behind very early and never recovered, losing what is still the most memorable opening game of a tournament to date. England coach Stuart Lancaster will hope not to emulate Bernard Laporte’s attempts to motivate his team before the opening match of the World Cup – France lost to Argentina after a motivational speech backfired By Paul EddisonStuart Lancaster will have been preparing for the opening game of the World Cup against Fiji since he was given the England job full-time back in 2012.While he has already had his contract extended, a nightmare tournament could see his position come under pressure, and the opening night is one place where he can’t afford for things to go wrong.Fiji are an improving team, and have enough firepower to cause England problems out wide, but Lancaster should be confident that his players will get the job done.Eight years ago however, France found out that the opening match on home soil isn’t always plain sailing, and the struggles of Bernard Laporte’s side are a lesson to Lancaster.The England coach has always been very keen to use inspirational sports figures to motivate his players, former England cricket captain Andrew Strauss, and Jessica Ennis’s coach Toni Minichello are among those who have been invited to talk to the squad in the past.When he was in charge of les Bleus, Laporte took a rather different approach, with catastrophic results.>>> World Cup 2015: Why it’s dangerous to write off FrancePrior to taking on Argentina at the Stade de France in the opener in 2007, Laporte gathered his team around in the dressing room and got one of the players to read out a famous letter from resistance fighter Guy Moquet. Laporte clearly didn’t find the solution, because France went onto lose the rematch with the Pumas in the third place play-off.England fans will hope that Lancaster’s pre-match routine this evening produces very different results at Twickenham.

The government must publicly say where Latif is being detained and what he is charged with”, the organisation said.A freelance journalist who works for France 24’s Arabic-language service and the pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat, Latif was arrested at his Khartoum home by intelligence agents who confiscated his computer’s hard drive as well as video material and cassettes. Heba Aly, who was working in Sudan for various international news media including Bloomberg News and IRIN (a UN humanitarian news agency), was deported on 2 February. Her expulsion may have been linked to her visits to Darfur and her reporting on the local arms industry. Read her story. Latif had just spent 21 days in the western region of Darfur although the travel permits issued to the journalists by the authorities are usually for periods no longer than two weeks. According to local sources, his arrest could be linked to this visit to Darfur and the fact that he also works for the World Food Programme, a UN agency.

That means 3% of all homes in foreclosure are vacant. In raw numbers, that’s 7,650 zombie homes, out of 258,000 homes in foreclosure. In terms of total housing across the nation, that’s one in every 13,000 of the nation’s total 99.2 million homes. The zombie foreclosure rate is down just 0.1 percentage point from the first quarter of the year, which is unsurprising as 70% of home loan borrowers are currently protected by a foreclosure moratorium enacted in March and lasting until at least the end of June. “We are in a holding pattern across the country as long as the moratorium continues,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer at ATTOM. When the moratorium is lifted, “that’s the point when we will see if foreclosure activity will remain at very low levels or rise,” Teta said. New York has the highest total number of zombie properties with 2,158. However, the state overall does not make it into the top five states in terms of the percentage of zombie properties compared to total properties in foreclosure.The states with the highest rate of zombie properties are Ohio (6.7%), New Mexico (5.5%), Indiana (4.8%), Illinois (4.7%), and Iowa (4.5%). In total Ohio has 877 properties in zombie status and is home to two of the large metros with the highest zombie foreclosure rate: Peoria, Illinois (12.9%); and Cleveland, Ohio (11%). Other metros with high rates of zombie properties were Syracuse, New York (8.9%); St. Louis (7.8%); and Honolulu (7.8%).New York, Florida, and Ohio were also home to the ZIP codes with some of the highest zombie rates among ZIP codes that had at least 100 properties in some stage of foreclosure. At the other end of the spectrum, the states with the lowest share of vacant properties in foreclosure are South Dakota, Idaho, New Hampshire, Utah, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Colorado. In all of these states less than 1.3% of all properties in foreclosure are zombie properties. The large metros with the lowest percentage of vacant properties in the foreclosure process are San Francisco (0.6%), Austin, Texas (0.8%); Philadelphia (1.1%); Phoenix (1.3%); and Boston (1.4%). The vacancy rate for all residential properties across the nation was 1.5% as of Q2, amounting to about 1.5 million properties total. The highest vacancy rates were recorded in Kansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Oklahoma, all of which had vacancy rates of 2.6%. Indiana followed closely with a vacancy rate of 2.5%The lowest vacancy rates were recorded in New Hampshire (0.4%), Vermont (0.4%), Delaware (0.5%), Idaho (0.6%) and North Dakota (0.7%).Indiana is home to the highest rate of vacancies among investor-owned properties. In Indiana, 8.4% of investor properties are vacant. Ohio ranked next with 6.6%, followed by Minnesota (6.1%) and Mississippi (5.7%).
