I’m investing £300k to grab my stake in this £71bn in share dividends

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. Cliff D’Arcy | Tuesday, 9th February, 2021 “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! It was said of one tycoon (perhaps JP Getty) that he was so rich he “lived off the interest from his interest”. Very few of us can ever hope to become so vastly rich that we can live on, say, 1% of 1% of our wealth. Even so, generating a passive income is a goal for many investors. With savings interest rates at rock bottom, this is a tall order nowadays. Hence, I aim to generate additional income by collecting regular share dividends from UK-listed companies.2020 was a grim year for share dividends2019 was the best year for UK share dividends in history as these cash payouts hit a record high. Total dividends paid by London-listed stocks came to £110.5bn, up more than a tenth (10.7%) on 2018, according to Link Asset Services.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…However, with company earnings devastated by Covid-19, UK share dividends collapsed in 2020. Indeed, according to A J Bell‘s excellent Dividend Tracker, 634 UK-listed companies cut, cancelled, suspended or delayed paying at least one dividend in the period from 9 January 2020 to 5 February 2021. Even worse, these 634 vanished share dividends amounted to a colossal £50.7bn in lost income for UK shareholders. With such a mammoth loss of cash payouts, it’s no wonder that the blue-chip FTSE 100 index lost a seventh (14.3%) of its value in 2020.Dividends are expected to rebound in 2021Good news: according to A J Bell’s quarterly Dividend Dashboard, share dividends should rebound this year. As Covid-19 vaccinations roll out and lockdown restrictions lift, higher consumer spending should stimulate economic growth. As a result, A J Bell expects total UK dividends to rise by £10.9bn to £70.8bn. That’s not guaranteed, of course. But already, 16 FTSE 100 companies have confirmed plans to restore dividends in 2021, boosting cash returns by almost £2.7bn.It’s important to understand that UK share dividends are highly concentrated. According to A J Bell, 10 FTSE 100 stocks accounted for more than half (54%) of forecast dividends for 2020. In addition, the top 20 may account for three-quarters (75%) of total dividends paid in 2020. Furthermore, 15 FTSE 100 companies pay yearly dividends exceeding £1bn. The top five payers all return between £4bn and £5bn in cash to their shareholders each year.Of course, if Covid-19 keeps mutating and more new variants emerge, then all bets are off. In this scenario, share dividends could even fall further this year. Yikes!I want my share of this £70.8bn cash floodAs I explained two weeks ago, my family is in line for a windfall of around £300,000. My wife and I have decided to earmark this sum for generating passive income. By investing this lump sum into stocks and shares, we aim to pocket 4% a year from share dividends. This comes to an extra £12k a year (£1,000 a month) in cash before tax.We won’t take excessive risks with this sum, so we aim to invest it in what I call ‘BBC businesses’: Big, Beautiful and Cautious. Thus, the bulk of this sum will be invested into mega-cap companies: the biggest beasts of the Footsie. There are 13 FTSE 100 members with market values above £40bn. What’s more, the total market cap of these 13 giants is almost £837bn. In my next article, I will unveil these 13 giants and reveal which quality stocks I intend to buy for bumper cash dividends…center_img Image source: Getty Images.

Morgan, aka Dorsey McConnell. Photo/Andy Muhl, Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh[Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh] The Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh ordained its 8th diocesan bishop on Oct. 20 in a ceremony of reverence and ritual that included a touch of comedic drama.Moments after the sermon, and just before the assembled bishops were to examine and ordain the Rev. Dorsey W. M. McConnell, attention turned to man in a brown trench coat and hat making his way up the center aisle and introducing himself as Morgan, an early 20th century Welsh bridge builder who immigrated to Pittsburgh.“Bridges! Bridges are the most beautiful things in the world,” he shouted.Morgan, in fact, was McConnell, a one-time actor. He and a group of diocesan youth then performed a six-minute sketch that told a parable about Morgan’s heaven-inspired vision to build a splendid “bridge of the angels.” As the story goes, his idea was rejected by all, save for a few children who built a “rather unusual” prototype that would miraculously save dozens of families from the flood and resulting fires that ravaged Pittsburgh in 1936.The lesson was that God is in the business of building bridges for salvation and as “Morgan” McConnell repeatedly confessed, “Everything is possible with God!”The skit in that setting “made a clear statement that Bishop McConnell is someone from whom to expect the unexpected,” the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted in its coverage.Photo/Andy Muhl, Episcopal Diocese of PittsburghBridge-building in the City of Bridges has been a theme McConnell has sounded since his election last April and one he carried forward from his most recent post as rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, and previous ministries in the dioceses of Olympia and New York.About 1,000 people filled the towering Gothic revival nave of Calvary Church for the ordination liturgy, which lasted almost three hours. McConnell will be formally seated at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Pittsburgh on Nov. 9.Photo/Andy Muhl, Episcopal Diocese of PittsburghPresiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori served as chief consecrator, along with co-consecrators that included bishops Kenneth L. Price (bishop suffragan of Southern Ohio and former provisional bishop of Pittsburgh); M. Thomas Shaw (bishop of Massachusetts); J. Clark Grew (retired bishop of Ohio); Edward S. Little (bishop of Northern Indiana); Paul V. Marshall (bishop of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania); and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Bishop Kurt F. Kusserow of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod. In all, 20 bishops took part in the service.The House of Deputies was represented by its former president, the Very Rev. George L. W. Werner, dean emeritus of Pittsburgh’s Trinity Cathedral and current president of the diocesan Standing Committee.Nearly 300 lay members and clergy of the diocese participated in the day’s celebration. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Hurmon Hamilton, a minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and currently teaching pastor of the Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in Mountain View, California. He is a close friend and longtime associate of McConnell from their days serving in the Boston area.“God has the peculiar power of bringing good news out of crisis,” Hamilton said in a sermon that mirrored the theme of building bridges in a time of turmoil.That task will be aided, he said, when believers stop finding fault in others and instead confess their own failings, then come together to be healed and nourished by the Eucharist.“One of the amazing things about a service like this is that it brings us together, from the left and from the right, and all the places in between. And we come from our various perspectives, just convinced that we are right and everybody else is wrong,” he said as some in the congregation chuckled.“And as you stand before the Holy Eucharist there will be something within you that will quietly say, ‘Thank God for the crisis.’ Because out of the crisis, good news will come.”Of the four Episcopal Church dioceses (Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, Quincy and San Joaquin) to re-organize in recent years after a majority of former members voted to secede, Pittsburgh is the first to call and consecrate a permanent bishop.Pittsburgh is one of 27 dioceses in the Episcopal Church that grew in membership this past year.Currently the diocese includes 37 actively participating parishes with a total of approximately 9,050 members.The three bishops who helped the diocese rebuild after the 2008 split — Kenneth Price, Robert H. Johnson and David C. Jones — appeared together during the consecration to hand McConnell the diocesan crozier.During the announcements, McConnell introduced Betsy, his wife of 32-years, and their son, Evan, 22. The bishop also welcomed 31 members of his former parish and representatives of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the union which he served for years as chaplain.A webcast of the consecration service can be view here.During her visit to the diocese, the presiding bishop met with diocesan clergy and spent part of an evening at a youth rally. On Oct. 21, she celebrated the Eucharist at the Church of the Holy Cross, a predominantly African-American congregation in Pittsburgh’s Homewood neighborhood.McConnell’s first visitation occurred the same day at St. Stephen’s Church in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania.— Rich Creehan is communication director for the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh.

Wildfires spring up across western US as dry heat continues

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Three dozen large fires continue to burn in 11 states across the West on Saturday as dry air and hot temperatures have settled in.Gusty northern winds of up to 45 mph are expected in the Santa Monica mountain region, Santa Clarita Valley, Santa Barbara south coast and San Fernando Valley on Saturday.Relative humidity is as low as 7 percent in Southern California.The Holiday Fire in Goleta, California, north of Santa Barbara, grew rapidly overnight and is now at a size of 100 acres. The Santa Barbara Fire Department said multiple structures had burned, and 50 to 100 homes were threatened.Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokesperson Mike Eliason shared multiple photos and videos on Twitter showing homes engulfed in flames.At least 2,200 people were evacuated in the Goleta area, officials said.Farther south, the West Fire, just north of San Diego, was at 400 acres and only 5 percent contained as of 10 p.m. local time Friday.

Stephon Clark’s family sues Sacramento, 2 officers over shooting death

first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — Family members of Stephon Clark, the unarmed black man fatally shot by police in Sacramento last March, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city and two police officers on Monday, citing racial profiling and excessive force.The suit, which names Terrence Mercadal, Jared Robinet and the city as defendants, is seeking at least $20 million in damages in connection to the 22-year-old’s death.“This family deserves answers and full transparency from the officers, the city and the Sacramento Police Department on the unjustified use of excessive and lethal force that killed Stephon Clark and robbed his children of a future with their father,” Brian Panish, a lawyer representing Clark’s children, said in a statement.“When the facts are fully disclosed,” he added, “we are confident that a jury will deliver justice that reflects how grossly the police and city officials failed Stephon, his family and the people of Sacramento.”Clark was shot and killed by Sacramento police officers in his grandmother’s backyard on March 18, 2018, after officers responded to a 911 call that described a man in a hoodie breaking car windows and hiding in a yard.When the officers encountered Clark, according to body-cam footage, they believed he was in possession of a “toolbar.” One of the officers said Clark motioned toward them, and another officer was heard yelling, “Show me your hands … gun, gun, gun.”The two officers fired 20 shots, hitting Clark at least seven times. Investigators later determined Clark had been holding only a cellphone.“The Sacramento police executed Stephon Clark in his grandparents’ backyard, mistaking his cell phone for a gun, assuming he was a criminal threat simply because he was a black man,” Ben Crump, a lawyer for Clark’s family, said in a statement. “Stephon’s life had value. In America, a life — even a black life — can’t be arbitrarily extinguished without holding those responsible accountable.”In a statement released on Monday, the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office said it received a “voluminous investigative report” about the fatal shooting from the Sacramento Police Department on Oct. 25. It received “further substantial investigative reports” and related materials from the Attorney General’s Department of Justice investigators on earlier this month, according to the statement.“Our timeline for completion of our review has thus been delayed as we process the supplemental materials,” the statement said. “We will take whatever time is needed to ensure a fair, thorough, and accurate review of this matter.”The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California on behalf of Clark’s two sons, his parents and his grandparents.It is not clear if Mercadal and Robinet, the two officers named in the lawsuit, have retained attorneys.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Combining ice core records and ice sheet models to explore the evolution of the East Antarctic Ice sheet during the Last Interglacial period

first_imgThis study evaluates the influence of plausible changes in East Antarctic Ice sheet (EAIS) thickness and the subsequent glacio-isostatic response as a contributor to the Antarctic warming indicated by ice core records during the Last Interglacial period (LIG). These higher temperatures have been estimated primarily using the difference in the δD peak (on average ~ 15‰) in these LIG records relative to records for the Present Interglacial (PIG). Using a preliminary exploratory modelling study, it is shown that introducing a relatively moderate reduction in the amount of thickening of the EAIS over the LIG period introduces a significant increase (up to 8‰) in the predicted elevation-driven only δD signal at the central Antarctic Ice sheet (AIS) ice core sites compared to the PIG. A sensitivity test in response to a large prescribed retreat of marine-based ice in the Wilkes and Aurora subglacial basins (equivalent to ~ 7 m of global mean sea-level rise) results in a distinct elevation signal that is resolvable within the ice core stable isotope records at three sites (Taylor Dome, TALDICE and EPICA Dome C). These findings have two main implications. First, EAIS elevation’s only effects could account for a significant fraction of the LIG warming interpreted from ice core records. This result highlights the need for an improved estimate to be made of the uncertainty and size of this elevation-driven δD signal which contributes to this LIG warming and that these effects need to be deconvolved prior to attempting to extract a climatic-only signal from the stable isotope data. Second, a fingerprint of significant retreat of ice in the Wilkes and Aurora basins should be detectable from ice core δD records proximal to these basins and therefore used to constrain their contribution to elevated LIG sea levels, after accounting for ice sheet–climate interactions not considered in our approach.last_img read more
