I own this FTSE 100 10% dividend yield in an ISA. And I reckon it will soar again in 2020!

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Enter Your Email Address In a recent article I explained why Greggs, a firm whose share price has grown by more than 80% in 2019, could be about to add to these monster gains next week. But it’s not the only dividend hero that I have one eye on as we head into the next decade.Indeed, as a shareholder of Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) stock, I am eagerly awaiting the release of fresh trading details on January 14. The housebuilder certainly soothed persistent fears over a market slowdown last time out in mid-November, advising that “we continued to see good demand for our homes and have built a very strong order book.” And I expect nothing less than another robust set of numbers from the Buckinghamshire company.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…It said that its sales rate per outlet per week was up at 0.96 in the year to date versus 0.81 a year earlier. And a total order book of 10,433 homes as of November 10, up from 9,843 at the same point in 2018 and worth £2.7bn (versus £2.4bn previously), gave investors like me extra reasons to be confident.  Stunning share price gainsLike Greggs, the FTSE 100 firm’s share price has also ignited this year, up a meaty 43% since New Year’s Day. Investor demand really lit up following the UK’s avoidance of a no-deal Brexit in October, and then again after the Conservative Party’s general election victory this month. But as I explained recently, it’s possible that this bullishness will evaporate once the complications of trade deal negotiations with the European Union become apparent, raising doubts over new-build demand once again in the minds of many investors.I see no reason to fear for the likes of Taylor Wimpey however, either in the near term or beyond. While it may fail to replicate the mighty share price gains of the outgoing year, thanks to ineffective government housing policy there’s no reason to expect the sunny trading releases from the homebuilders to come to a halt. And this should keep the stock moving skywards.Lending conditions remain extremely favourable too, and are likely to remain so given the likely persistence of dovish Bank of England monetary policy entering the next decade. So one can expect bubbly demand for Taylor Wimpey product (and that of its peers) from first-time buyers to keep on booming.Big dividends, top valueCity analysts expect earnings at the Footsie company to rise fractionally in 2020, reflecting predictions of more weak home price growth. Still, current consensus leaves Taylor Wimpey trading on a rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of 9.5 times, way below the FTSE 100 broader average of 14.5 times.Besides, what the builder lacks in terms of growth, it more than makes up for in terms of dividends, Taylor Wimpey pledging to keep the special payouts coming next year. It plans to pay a total 18.6p per share reward in 2020, which yields a mighty 9.6%. I reckon the business should keep paying big dividends beyond the coming year too, and with fresh financials just around the corner, I reckon it’s a top buy today. Image source: Getty Images.

Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! According to the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), this is our worst economic slump for 300 years. The OBR expects GDP to shrink by 11.3% this year, which is only trumped by the devastation of the Great Frost of 1709. No wonder FTSE 100 shares have fallen.That knowledge first spiked my amazement that we even have records going back that far. Then I felt sympathy for anyone in charge of budget responsibility. But though such a sorry economic prospect approaches disaster, reading further helped settle my fears.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…The economy is expected to pick up next year, but probably won’t be back to pre-pandemic levels until the end of 2022. Now, hang on a minute, a massive disaster that’s over in two years doesn’t seem like something to despair over. It’s certainly no reason to abandon investing in FTSE 100 shares, as many have done this year.Carry on investingAn economic slump is dreadful, especially for those losing their jobs. Nobody wants it to happen. But from a long-term investment perspective, even a two-year dip, shouldn’t be a reason to stop investing. The dip might be deep, but if it’s effectively flat after two years? Twenty four months are hard to even see on long-term FTSE 100 share price charts.The approach championed by all of us at The Motley Fool is to invest for the long term. For me, that’s five years as an absolute minimum. But I really prefer to commit to 10 years, and 20 is even better. According to a Barclays study, the UK stock market has never lost out to cash investments over any 20-year period in the past 120 years, or so. Not even once.I’m in it until the endWith that long-term commitment behind me, I can take short-term dips in my stride. But I confess the depths that FTSE 100 shares reached in the 2020 crash sorely tested me. I’m confident that good companies will thrive, and that my stock values will recover before I need the cash. But it’s an altogether different thing to watch them plummeting and not flinch.I was talking to a financial adviser not long ago. And when I said that my investments were almost totally in FTSE 100 shares with a long-term horizon, you know what he said? He rejected my strategy, saying that it was all very well but it wasn’t not much good this year. My long-term strategy doesn’t work in the short term? It makes me wonder how you get to be a financial adviser these days! One of my fellow Motley Fool writers is one, so I’ll have to ask him.FTSE 100 share price panic?The key thing now is to not panic, and I’m certainly not going to sell any of my FTSE 100 shares. Instead, I’m planning to buy more for my Stocks and Shares ISA. And the stock market crash and economic slump? I say never mind the depth, feel the duration — or something like that.The grey clouds from the OBR haven’t a silver lining, but a golden one. The prospect of getting back to almost-normal by the end of next year is better than this long-term investor had hoped.last_img read more

Prop Rhys Thomas scores then celebrates like a back

first_imgTuesday Apr 27, 2010 Prop Rhys Thomas scores then celebrates like a back Scarlets gave fellow Magners League basement side Connacht a nine-try hammering on the weekend as they beat them 58-10 at Parc y Scarlets, with prop Rhys Thomas scoring two tries.The second of his two tries was requested to be featured here, not only because of the neat crosskick and perfectly executed inside flick, but because his celebration would do most Fijian wings proud.Perhaps he was watching Rupeni Caucau score twoon RD last week and felt inspired to bring back some of the classic hand gestures. By the look of things he’s been practising that for some time and finally got the chance to unleash it on the public.Whatever the case, it was a good try with a nice finish and while its certainly not the best prop try weve seen, it was a pretty decent all round effort from each player involved.Connacht had actually fielded a weakened side, but the result was still pretty convincing and gave Scarlets their biggest Magners League win since 2007.

Yorkshire and Clydesdale Banks raise £100,000 for BHF

first_imgYorkshire and Clydesdale Banks raise £100,000 for BHF Howard Lake | 9 September 2005 | News Employees at Yorkshire Bank and Clydesdale Bank have raised over £100,000 for the British Heart Foundation in just eight months.In January this year, Yorkshire Bank and Clydesdale Bank launched their first ever Charity Partnership by each making a £20,000 donation. Since then, all funds raised by employees have been matched £1 for £1 by the banks, encouraging the continued commitment from their 10,000 staff.The banks reached their £100,000 fundraising milestone by holding a host of fundraising events, including a ‘wear something red’ day on Valentine’s Day and a ‘wear something red on your head’ day during the BHF’s Help a Heart Week in June. Also among the activities that week was a ‘Departmental Triathlon’ where competitors cycled, swam and ran (or walked) a total of 874 miles – equivalent to the distance between John o’Groats to Land’s End, raising £5,000.

The UK version, which includes the ability to capture Gift Aid information, enables online donations, registration, email, and SMS communications to help charities acquire and cultivate supporters.The new package, available in three versions, combines the functionality of The Raiser’s Edge and Blackbaud NetCommunity, but has been configured to serve those charities who wanted a simpler approach to choosing and installing the software that is used by over 13,000 not-for-profits around the world.This new packaged version of The Raiser’s Edge includes software, implementation, support and maintenance. It reduces the costs of sale for Blackbaud, and the company says it is passing on these savings to bring the price down on the standard, but customisable, version of The Raiser’s Edge.Blackbaud explained that the new package was developed to service the growing expectations of donors who wish to interact with a charity via one or more of a whole range of channels, and to serve the needs of charities who wish to combine and analyse information on donors irrespective of whether they gave online or offline. It is based on Blackbaud’s examination of the best practices of its 250,000 users.The Raiser’s Edge (i) allows individuals to login, make donations, sign up for email alerts, and track all their past donations (whether made online or offline). Charities can use it to analyse their donors’ giving behaviour, including how they interact with their website, and to develop communication and fundraising programmes based on analysis of donors’ online and offline giving histories.The Raiser’s Edge (i) platform was created, trialled and developed in the USA in 2010. Blackbaud says that organisations using it to manage supporters who were interacting online and offline “typically secured 40% higher gifts”.Martin Jervis, Blackbaud Europe’s vice president and managing director, said: “Blackbaud recognises that the only real answer is to have one fully integrated solution. Fundraising and supporter relationship management has changed significantly in recent years with donors, fundraisers and stakeholders alike expecting to engage, be engaged with, share and feel like they are part of the organisation they choose to support”.Focusing on its simplicity and lower cost, Jervis added: “This new version effectively doubles the number of people in the market who can take advantage of The Raiser’s Edge.”www.blackbaud.co.uklast_img read more

Women’s liberation NOW!

first_imgInternational Working Women’s Day Coalition defends reproductive justice, New York City, March 8. 2014.The Women’s March on Washington on Jan. 21 has issued unity principles defining what it stands for. Included in eight rights are those for workers, immigrants, LGBTQIA communities, people with disabilities, environmental justice, civil and reproductive rights, and ending violence.The march statement on reproductive freedom begins, “We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education.”The statement concludes: “Recognizing that women have intersecting identities and are therefore impacted by a multitude of social justice and human rights issues … [we] must create a society in which women — in particular Black women, Native women, poor women, immigrant women, Muslim women, and queer and trans women — are free and able to care for and nurture their families, however they are formed, in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments.”That affirmation of reproductive justice is welcome since the next day, Jan. 22, is the 44th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, Roe v. Wade. Roe’s very existence is now in jeopardy given the aggressive anti-woman, anti-abortion stance of the Trump-Pence administration and the right-wing-controlled Congress.The House of Representatives passed the first step in repealing the Affordable Care Act on Jan. 13, which affects millions of working people, especially women of child-bearing age whose contraceptives were paid for under the law. (See editorial.) The same day Rep. Steve King (R-IA) introduced a national law to ban all abortions.The major federal ruling that currently restricts Medicaid and Title X payments for abortions for poor women is the Hyde Amendment, in effect since 1976. (See Jan. 5 WW.)Attacks in the statesAccording to the Guttmacher Institute, 18 states in 2016 enacted 50 new restrictions on abortion. That brings the total of restrictions enacted since 2010 to 338.Now 14 states, mostly in the South and upper Midwest, have 20-week bans on abortion. Twenty weeks is the time when anti-choice adherents claim a fetus can feel pain, though that has been debunked by the Central Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. According to NARAL Pro-Choice America, no laws have an adequate exception for women’s health.Some states have adopted extreme laws. Texas passed one in 2016 that mandates burial or cremation of embryonic or fetal tissue from abortions, miscarriages or ectopic pregnancy surgery, regardless of the woman’s wishes. The Center for Reproductive Rights filed a lawsuit Dec. 12, arguing that “restrictions cannot impose burdens on a woman’s right to access abortion care without providing any medical benefit.” (Rewire, Dec. 12)New Idaho state Sen. Dan Foreman intends to introduce a state bill that any woman who has an abortion or a doctor who performs one will be charged with first-degree murder. The only exception is if the woman’s life is in danger. (www.mcclatchydc.com, Jan. 11)  Guttmacher confirmed this is a first in the U.S.Abortion advocates resist Ever since the selection of the Trump ticket, abortion rights organizations and advocates have been mobilizing. Many such groups will be marching on J21 in D.C. and hundreds of U.S. cities, along with many women who have never marched before.All* Above All will be there with its new campaign: “We will be Bold, We won’t be Punished.” A*AA was started by young women and women of color in 2014 to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which discriminates against poor women — predominantly women of color, youth, immigrants, rural residents, women with disabilities and survivors of domestic violence. At a press briefing on Jan. 12, A*AA co-director Destiny Lopez stressed, “The fight to lift coverage bans cannot be divided from the broader struggle for abortion access.”Amy Hagstrom Miller, CEO of Whole Women’s Health, a plaintiff in last year’s Supreme Court case, pointed to the recent hike in the maternal death rate in Texas after laws forced reproductive health clinics to close. She predicted that if the anti-woman agenda exists on the federal level, “we will see more negative outcomes for women’s health.”“What happens in the next four years could affect Latina health for decades,” said Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, executive director, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health. Speaking for Latinas and their families, especially immigrants, she said, “That’s why we’re building our power, super-charging our activism, and forging new cross-movement relationships.”Yamani Hernandez, executive director, National Network for Abortion Access, wrote in a Jan. 4 email to supporters, “As we kick off 2017, let’s draw strength from each other. … Let’s march forward together, with our voices, with our donations, and with our love. … Let’s build power.”Why we must fight backAll the attacks on abortion from the Trump-Pence administration and right-wing Congresspeople are part and parcel of a reactionary turn to the right. Trump, his government and many of his followers want to return to the 19th century — to racist segregation, white supremacy and lynchings; no unions defending workers’ rights;  no laws promoting clean air, water and a healthy environment; LGBTQ people jailed for expressing their desires; and women unable to vote, have legal rights, access safe abortions or lead independent lives.As well as being Commander in Chief, President Trump should be called Patriarch in Chief. Smashing patriarchy should be high on our agenda.Frederich Engels explained how patriarchy arose at the dawn of history in “The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State.” Primitive communism evolved from separate roles for the sexes — women cultivating crops close to home and children, while men hunted and fished — into “the historic downfall of the female sex.” As men’s domestication of herds of animals increased their power and property, they wanted to bequeath wealth to their progeny. So women’s social and economic role was subordinated to men’s, and with private property came classes and patriarchy.It’s time for thorough-going revolutionary change. Not only do we need to fight Trump’s backward agenda, which only benefits millionaires and property owners, we need to link arms with all our sisters and brothers and form a united movement that guarantees all the rights affirmed by the Women’s March. It’s time for a revolutionary women’s movement that fights for full women’s liberation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
