So don’t despair, the income is out there. If I had £5k to invest, or any other sum, I’d check out these high-dividend-yield FTSE 100 stocks.I’d spread my £5k among these five stocksI’ve been a particular admirer of Standard Life Aberdeen during the pandemic. In April, its directors unanimously agreed to press ahead with its £300m payout, as chairman Sir Douglas Flint showed where the group’s loyalties lie: “Our small shareholders rely on a dividend cheque.”Right now, this high-dividend-yield stock pays an incredible 8.84%. At this heady level, it may be cut at some point. Even if incoming CEO Stephen Bird slashes it in half, investors should still get income of around 4.5% a year.British American Tobacco has been one of the best FTSE 100 income stocks for decades, and today yields 8.32%. Tobacco use may be declining in the West, but the cigarette giant boasts strong brands and is boosting its market share as a result. The rise of e-cigarettes and vaping may offset lost revenues. Either away, it should continue to generate plenty of cash for years to come, and trades at a bargain 7.8 times earnings.Utility giant National Grid must be one of the most solid stocks on the entire FTSE 100. Its business is to deliver electricity and gas safely and reliably to customers in the UK and north-eastern United States. UK earnings are regulated, while the US offers diversification. Right now, National Grid gives you a punchy yield of 5.5% a year.I’d target these high-dividend-yield sharesIt is hard to write about high-dividend-yield stocks without covering pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline. Although the company has held its payout of 80p for years, it’s put the savings to good work by investing in its drugs pipeline. Investors can hardly complain, given that it currently yields 5.25%. A great long-term buy-and-hold.Finally, I’d like to highlight another high-dividend-yield hero, global mining giant Rio Tinto. While rival BHP Group has just cut its dividend, Rio Tinto has actually increased its shareholder payout. Right now, it yields a juicy 6.21%.As you can see, investors can still generate healthy income levels by investing in high-dividend-yield stocks on the FTSE 100.

Bill Arrowsmith Street and Billie Dean Avenue? City Council gets specific

by ,

first_img Apopka City Commissioner Alexander H. Smith is on a mission.At the May 16th City Council meeting, Smith, a commissioner for less than two months, made a proposal that seemed to resonate with the entire Council.Former Apopka City Commissioner and Vice Mayor Bill Arrowsmith.“I would like to propose that the City Council take steps to name a street after former Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith and after former Commissioner Billy Dean,” Smith said.Apopka Mayor Bryan Nelson was in agreement. “Let’s find out the process from the county. I know it’s an arduous one,” he said. “And I’m fully in support of your thoughts and I think appropriately so. I think we just need to get the wheels started. Can someone reach out to them (Arrowsmith and Dean)?” “I know Commissioner Dean would like to have Central Avenue changed to Billy Dean Avenue and Commissioner Arrowsmith hasn’t gotten back to me yet, said Smith.” “Okay, let’s put that in motion,” said Nelson.Smith apparently took Nelson’s request to heart. “I brought it up last week and there was a consensus on this council that we rename the road after Commissioner Arrowsmith and Commissioner Dean,” said Smith, at yesterday’s City Council meeting during the City Commission Reports portion. “Commissioner Arrowsmith would like First Street and Central Avenue for Mr. Dean.” “So you’re working this one hard,” joked Nelson. “Yes sir,” said Smith. “Okay, so now we have a direction,” said Nelson. “We will move forward and try to make that happen.” Barbara Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear All well and good, but had anyone thought of the costs involved, New maps , New telephone books, New address changes to be made to state and national, better to name New streets after them, in New Errol, or any new development, less cost less hassle.

All Blacks beat Wallabies comfortably in Tokyo

by ,

first_imgSunday Nov 1, 2009 All Blacks beat Wallabies comfortably in Tokyo Tokyo was the venue for the fourth Bledisloe Cup Test match between arch rivals New Zealand and Australia. A near capacity 44 000 turned out at the Olympic Stadium to watch the All Blacks comfortable 32-19 win.Its been a clean sweep for them, winning all four Tests of this series, taking their tally to seven in a row against their neighbours Australia.For the losing side, there was some consolation in that they scored their first try against NZ since their first meeting in the Tri Nations in July.Australia led 16-13 at half time following the Peter Hynes try in the corner. New Zealand grabbed the lead again though when Sitiveni Sivivatu dived over in the corner after some great hands by Captain Richie McCaw.Sivivatu was yellow carded for a reckless tackle on Adam Ashley-Cooper in the air, and has since been suspended for a week.Conrad Smith scored another try as he breezed through some questionable tackling, before Dan Carter extended the lead with some quality goal kicking.“We needed to be able to put seven and eight phases together and we would have been looking pretty good,” said Wallabies captain Rocky Elsom. “For whatever reason we couldn’t do that and it cost us as we really needed tries there.”“We obviously weren’t good enough,” he said.The match ended with a bit of a scrap, for which Tony Woodcock has also been suspended for a week, as he elbowed George Smith.Both he and Sivivatu will miss the Test against Wales at the Millennium Stadium next weekend, which is the start of New Zealands tour. They will take on Wales, Italy, England, France, and the Barbarians.Australia travel to Britain and Ireland as they have their first Grand Slam attempt in 25 years. They start with a midweek match against Gloucester on Tuesday though.

Pavic heads the country’s biggest media group, Europa Press Holding (EPH), some of whose newspapers are currently investigating organised crime.A bomb placed under his car exploded in the early hours on 1 March in front of his home in Zagreb, injuring no-one but causing extensive damage. Police put him under protection but said they had no leads on who planted the bomb or why.”This attack seems to be an effort to intimidate and silence journalists probing organised crime,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to interior minister Sime Lucin. “We ask you not to rule this out in your investigation of the crime.”Two EPH papers, the daily Jutarnji list and the weekly Globus, regularly publish reports on organised crime. Last year, three Globus journalists came under attack. Mark Cigoj was physically attacked on 27 December, and Renata Ivanovic and Gordan Malic received threats from two major figures in the Croatian underworld.EPH, of which Pavic is co-owner, is controlled by the German group Westdeutscher Allgemeine Zeitung.

Well-known Libyan journalist missing since his arrest

first_img Receive email alerts Airport CCTV footage shows El Boum, the president of the Libyan Organisation for Independent Media, being led away by two men in civilian dress at around 11 p.m., shortly after he went through passport control. What has happened to him since then is not known.The interior ministry of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), which exercises a degree of control over western Libya, has denied any role in his arrest and disappearance. The ministry said in a communiqué that El Boum is being held by the intelligence services, which are controlled by one of the militias that have shared power in Libya since Muammar Gaddafi’s overthrow in 2011. Usually referred to as Annawassi, this militia is headed by Mustapha Gdoura and operates outside of government control.El Boum has been the target of a major smear campaign on social networks for more than three years, ever since he published a report on the human rights situation in Libya for which he received the Media in Cooperation and Transition prize in 2017.“This is urgent,” said Souhaieb Khayati, the head of RSF’s North Africa desk. “We call on the Government of National Accord to do everything possible to get Reda Elhadi Fheil el Boum released, and we urge Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj to demonstrate his commitment to the safety of journalists, who are working in unacceptable conditions of violence in Libya.”Libya is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

Fewer Distressed Homes For Sale in Hardest Hit Areas

by ,

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Fewer Distressed Homes For Sale in Hardest Hit Areas A decline in the glut of distressed homes for sale in the hardest hit areas will mean good news for the housing market, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).On a recent blog post, NAR pointed out that the wave of foreclosures has driven down prices in many major U.S. cities, leading investors to snap up homes for sale in cities such as Las Vegas, Miami, Tampa, Detroit, and New York.While investors buying up distressed inventory, often at substantial discounts tends to pull down prices, it also reduces the amount of distressed inventory for sale—which is good news for long-term home price appreciation.“That’s reducing prices in the short run,” NAR wrote. “Yet it is also thinning the supply of homes, which must happen to clear the way for higher prices in the long run.”NAR noted that half of the homes in Tampa listed for sale are going for less than $100,000.In its existing-home sales report for May 2016, NAR reported that all-cash sales comprised 22 percent of all residential home sales in May, down 2 percentage points both over-the-month and over-the-year, while individual investors (who account for a large portion of the cash sales share) accounted for 13 percent of purchases in May—unchanged over-the-month and down by 1 percentage point over-the-year.Meanwhile, the distressed sales share—percentage of foreclosures, REO properties, and short sales—declined by 4 percentage points over-the-year in May down to 6 percent, and foreclosures sold at an average discount of 12 percent in May—down from 17 percent in April. Short sales were discounted at a higher rate in May than in April (11 percent compared to 10 percent), according to NAR.The decline in distressed inventory for sale has created more demand, which has led to more home price appreciation among non-distressed inventory.“Overall, the homes-for-sale inventory remains relatively lean, while demand to buy homes has increased because of an improving labor market, more optimistic levels of consumer confidence, and continuing low mortgage rates,” CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said. “Increased demand in the face of lean for-sale inventory has prompted further value appreciation for non-distressed homes.” Tagged with: distressed properties Foreclosures REO Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago distressed properties Foreclosures REO 2016-06-27 Brian Honea Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Fewer Distressed Homes For Sale in Hardest Hit Areas Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Skip Print Article Not many storytelling festivals have opening acts.But the Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival is not just any storytelling festival.The Festival features four storytelling concerts and each one opens with a bang. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Songs prelude to storytelling at festival Email the author By The Penny Hoarder “The Lighthouse String Ensemble is a Southern gospel group that has played at the theater and at the Peanut Butter Festival,” Bowden said. “They take center stage at the 10 a.m. storytelling concert at the Trojan Center Theater. The Lighthouse String Ensemble has been a featured band at the Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival since we started in 2007.”The WPA Scratch Band, the original house band at the We Piddle Around Theater, takes center stage for the closing storytelling concert at 6:30 p.m. concert.“The band likes to call themselves the ‘Sympathy Band,’” Bowden said. “We are always proud to have them come back together to be with us.”The bands begin playing 30 minutes prior to each storytelling concert, so ticket holders are encouraged to make plans to be at the Trojan Center Theater at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 and 6 p.m. to catch the 30-minute pre-shows.“The bands alone are worth the price of admission,” Bowden said. “They bring people in early and get them in the mood for a great time of storytelling by master tellers.Tickets for the 10 a.m. and 2 and 6:30 p.m. storytelling concerts at the Trojan Center Theater are available at The Messenger, the Colley Senior Complex or by calling 334-735-3125 or 334-685-5524. Sponsored Content The sponsoring Brundidge Historical Society is the producer of “Come Home, It’s Suppertime,” an original folk life play that is a combination of stories and songs.“When we decided to expand what we do in the area of folk life presentations to include storytelling, we just naturally thought we should have music,” said Lawrence Bowden, president of the BHS. “So, we decided to open each storytelling concert with music and songs by bluegrass/ gospel bands. The storytellers liked opening with music. They felt, as we did, that it set the tone for the telling of stories.”Bowden said the setting for the Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival is much like in years past when folks would gather on the front porch, play music and sing and then sit back and tell stories.
