Top UK shares I’d buy in May Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now Harshil Patel | Saturday, 1st May, 2021 | More on: PHNX PSN The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… Image source: Getty Images Enter Your Email Address Dividends from UK shares form an important part of shareholder returns. For instance, the FTSE 100 returned just 1.95% per year over the past five years without including dividends. But this jumps to 6% per year including dividend payments.Over time, dividends can make a significant impact on total return. Some UK shares offer relatively generous dividend income. Let’s look at some that are currently offering a dividend yield of over 6%.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…UK shares with dividend appealAt the top of my list is one of the UK’s leading housebuilders, Persimmon (LSE:PSN). It currently offers a dividend yield of around 7.5%.With bank interest savings at record lows, Persimmon’s dividends could play an important role for shareholder income. Of course, dividends need to be looked at with the wider business prospects.Encouragingly, Persimmon recently released a reassuring trading update. It made a strong start to the year with forward sales 23% ahead of last year and 11% ahead of the same point in 2019.Demand for newly built homes remains healthy. And the industry is being helped by the availability of mortgages and stamp duty incentives for new homebuyers.Cautious optimismThe outlook is also encouraging. The company is cautiously optimistic regarding consumer confidence over the coming year. It is also ready to manage market conditions if they change, as witnessed from last year’s disruption.A word of warning, however. Dividends can change depending on how a business performs. Any decline in consumer confidence and housebuying could negatively affect Persimmon’s performance. This could have an impact on the level of dividends distributed to shareholders.Overall, I’m happy with Persimmon’s progress and would happily include it as one of my top UK shares to buy in May.Dull but mightyNext, I’m considering Phoenix Group (LSE:PHNX) as a top dividend-paying UK share. It’s listed on the London Stock Exchange and forms part of the FTSE 100. It specialises in the acquisition and management of insurance and pension funds.It might sound like a dull business to some, but often this is exactly the type of investment that can provide stable long-term returns. What I particularly like about Phoenix Group right now is its 6.6% dividend yield. That’s one of the highest yields in the FTSE 100!Another positive attribute I look for when searching for high-dividend UK shares is dividend growth. Has the company consistently grown its dividend payments every year? In Phoenix Group’s case, yes it has.I also want to see if the business is performing well. Dividends aren’t guaranteed, so it’s good to see that Phoenix earnings are growing. It recently released an update indicating record cash generation, a rise in pre-tax profits, and signs of future growth.Risks to look out forBear in mind though, its past earnings have not always risen consistently every year. Further fluctuations over the coming years could potentially weaken either its dividend payments or its share price. Also, unexpected changes in interest rates could impact Phoenix. Although it manages to mitigate some of these risks, it’s something to look for in the future.All things considered, at a price-to-earnings ratio of just 8.7 times, this stock looks cheap to me. And with the generous near-7% dividend yield, I’m tempted to add this to my Stocks and Shares ISA.center_img We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

first_imgAli Stokes runs the rule over those in the running for the wing and full-back slots in Eddie Jones’s squad for Japan LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The season may be nearly over but there is much still to play for.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. All smiles: Jonny May celebrates a try against France with Elliot Daly (Getty Images) center_img England’s back-three options for the Rugby World CupThe 13-month injury-enforced absence of Anthony Watson finally came to an end last Friday, with the British & Irish Lion fighting to place himself back into contention for one of the predicted five outside back slots in England’s 31-man World Cup squad.Once considered a nailed-on Test starter, Watson now faces the challenge of re-establishing himself as an absolute certainty in the Eddie Jones’s Japanese touring party post-injury – and he is not alone in this undertaking.Rugby World details England’s dead certs and maybe men out wide for Japan 2019…On the planeJack NowellThe cap fits: Jack Nowell breaks against Scotland (Getty Images)Exeter Chiefs’ first Lion, Nowell is one of our three outside backs guaranteed a trip to Japan. Capable at outside-centre, wing and full-back, the Cornishman packs a punch in attack and, crucially, mixes in with the best breakdown nauses.Jones’s throwaway statement that Nowell could play at openside for England highlights just how highly the Australian boss rates his skill-set.Elliot DalyTee time: Elliot Daly offers a goalkicking option (Getty Images)Whether you scoff at the idea of Daly at full-back or, like me, sit in awe of his all-round skill-set, the fact that he’s started the last 12 England games in the No 15 jersey indicates that Jones will take the soon-to-be Saracen to the World Cup.While the basics of defensive full-back play may have eluded him during his first few starts at 15, Daly has transformed England’s attack. Distributing in the last offensive wave and utilising his pace as an individual threat, England’s attack will flounder without Daly.Jonny MayAll a blur: Jonny May show his speed for England (Getty Images)Arguably England’s most improved player over the past half-decade, May has evolved from a simple speed merchant with a penchant for running in the wrong direction to England’s, and Leicester’s, most prolific try-scorer.But May’s innate ability to find the white line like a heat-seeking missile is not the only reason he is guaranteed a squad spot. The 29-year-old’s strength under the high ball is an immensely attractive trait, with Ben Youngs’s box-kicking game fundamental to any and all English success under Jones.May is the final outside back Jones trusts implicitly.Awaiting boarding callAnthony Watson Back in action: Anthony Watson on his return against Sale (Getty Images)Pre-injury, Watson would have been straight onto the plane alongside the aforementioned trio. However, the 25-year-old’s electric pace and dancing footwork were his key points of difference and two bouts of surgery to the Achilles tendon that plays a tremendous role in sprinting leaves a significant question mark next to Watson’s name.While the London Irish Academy product’s experience at full-back for England could swing a 50-50 vote in his favour, the uncertainty will remain until disproven.Watson’s challenge is simple, although by no means easy, get on the field for Bath and prove to everyone, including himself, he can pick up where he left off.Mike BrownFull stretch: Mike Brown scores against Clermont (Getty Images)The most capped full-back in England’s history, ‘Mr Angry’ has been fighting an uphill battle as of late. Brown is the most stable and secure full-back in the country, but England’s step towards a wider, multi-faceted attacking game at the end of 2018 saw the Harlequin fall from favour.Brown must continue to prove the attacking flair he has displayed for Quins this season is both consistent and reliable, ideally in a Premiership play-off.Joe CokanasigaAll hands on deck: Joe Cokanasiga shows his offload skills (Getty Images)He has been a revelation for England this season after bursting onto the scene last November. Cokanasiga is the only England winger in possession of a truly unique selling point: X-factor.The Bath winger’s size (6ft 4in and 19-plus stone), power, ability to offload like a Fijian Sevens star and sheer athleticism offers Jones a genuine game-breaker. Although an attractive asset, it is not necessarily the World Cup material Jones desires.For all his many attributes, Cokanasiga does not tick the box of full-back play Jones holds so dear. Going forward, his positional play and scrutiny under the high ball will mean the difference between watching the World Cup on his sofa or sampling sushi in Japan.Chris AshtonShark attack: Chris Ashton on the ball for Sale (Getty Images)The former rugby league man’s season-long stint as Toulon’s first-choice full-back and subsequent role in the Barbarians’ dismantling of an England’s XV last year were the sparks that reignited his Test status.But, the Sale Shark is going to have to nail his lines in defence and find the try-line a few more times during his final club games to strengthen his World Cup bid.last_img read more

In a statement released on Friday, RideLondon said the decision not to go ahead had been taken by London authorities after discussions with partners involved in its planning. RideLondon said they had been looking at different scenarios for delivering the event but that due to the practicalities, such as the many road closures needed and the number of participants and spectators that could be expected, they would focus on a virtual event for this year, and on bringing it back in 2022.Hugh Brasher, its Event Director, stated:“We know it is very disappointing news, especially for charities, as more than £80 million has been raised for good causes since the first event in 2013.“We are currently working with the Mayor’s Office to deliver a virtual event in the summer designed to inspire as many people as possible to cycle more often and also to engage some of the hundreds of thousands of new or lapsed cyclists to raise money for the many charities whose income has been so affected by Covid-19.”2019’s Prudential RideLondon raised £11.5m for charities, with Alzheimer’s Society raising more than £450,000, making it the most successful fundraiser from the event. Macmillan Cancer Support and Prostate Cancer UK were among the many other charities that raised six-figure sums.Last year however saw the event, like many others, go virtual due to the pandemic. It took place in August, offering four cycling challenges: a 19, 46 or 100-mile ride, or the FreeCycle, which let participants set their own distance on the wheels of their choice.This year’s London to Brighton Bike Ride, BHF’s flagship event, has also been cancelled, it was announced last month.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 29, 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE Bower Trading Market Strategy Report: A Better Outlook for SoybeansLast week saw the corn market remain in its trading range. Doug Werling, with Bower Trading, says that will likely continue this week as harvest continues to lag behind, “The corn market is holding its own in a very tight and narrow range. It is impressive that it is holding up as well as is has given the higher than expected corn yields.” He says this shows there is good corn demand under the market.With the soybean harvest nearly complete, Werling sees the bean market getting more active, “You are going to get to the point this week where the hedge pressure is going to lift. Export numbers at the end of last week were very good.” He said, in the market, there is beginning to grow the sentiment that soybean prices will move higher.There are soybean futures above $10 for 2018. Bower Trading believes there is still more upside potential on new crop soybeans, “I would advise being cautious about being an aggressive seller of 2018 soybeans. I feel they are going to get a lot better and give guys more options.” Unlike some reports last week that predicted higher soybean acres in 2018, Bower Trading feels midwestern producers will still plant more corn.For more market strategy information, contact Bower Trading at 800-533-8045 or bowertrading.com.

first_imgEVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Business News Michael Konrad, Wanda deVlaminck, and their dog, Darwin. Credit: CaltechDuring her long and varied career, Wanda deVlaminck worked in state-level public health, advocated for the development of new vaccines and treatments, and co-founded a biotechnology company focused on gene therapies for cancer and other diseases.“The one thing you can say about her professional life is that it wasn’t boring,” says her husband, Michael Konrad (BS ’58). “She was very adventurous.”DeVlaminck was a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, but before she passed away in 2019, she asked Konrad to support Caltech in her name. To honor her wishes to support Caltech students at the beginnings of their own adventures, he has made a $1 million gift to the Institute to endow the Wanda Celine deVlaminck Scholarship. The gift is part of Break Through: The Caltech Campaign.“She said she had learned how important my four years at Caltech were to me, and conversations with friends and the biographies of many scientists had convinced her of Caltech’s unique role in the scientific community,” Konrad says. “Even more than that, I think it was partially a gift to me.”A Strenuous VacationWith its demanding curriculum and academic population of high achievers, Caltech can be a challenging place for new students. Not so for Konrad. In 1954, the summer before he arrived at Caltech, he joined the U.S. Naval Reserve and endured the trials of boot camp. He considered it a luxury, then, that he could sleep until 7 a.m. at Caltech and still get to class on time.“A lot of the other freshmen were upset because they didn’t have plush beds and their mothers weren’t there to cook their favorite foods,” he jokes. “But for me, it was a big vacation.” – Michael Konrad (BS ’58), on his days at CaltechMake no mistake, Konrad’s “vacation” involved a lot of hard work. Outside the classroom, he became president of Fleming House, developed a love for hiking in the mountains, and lettered in cross country. The latter feat stunned his father, who had played football at the U.S. Naval Academy but did not see his son as being similarly attracted to pursue athletics. “I bought a letter sweater, and my dad nearly fell off his chair,” Konrad says.Inside the classroom, Konrad initially focused on physics, but the vast potential for discovery in biology captivated him. Caltech’s physics program allowed him the freedom to take courses in biology and chemistry, and this experience inspired him to enroll as a biophysics graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1958. Unbeknownst to him, his future life partner was there at the same time, working toward a bachelor’s degree in microbiology, though a couple of decades would pass before the two would meet.United by ScienceAfter he earned his doctorate, Konrad spent 14 years as a faculty member at UCLA and Berkeley. He then joined the biotech firm Cetus, where he became director of a research project on interferons, proteins that cells release in response to viruses. Cetus focused on developing beta interferons, which are useful in treating diseases such as multiple sclerosis.DeVlaminck, meanwhile, worked in the California Public Health Department in the 1970s before shifting to Cutter Laboratories, a pharmaceutical company that developed vaccines. She worked in a Cutter research lab for years, later becoming manager of the department that produced the vaccines and, eventually, head of regulatory affairs.She then moved to Shell Oil, where she led regulatory affairs for the energy company’s new venture in interferon cancer therapeutics. Because Shell had little experience in the area, Konrad says, the company’s leadership decided to partner with a biotech firm to observe and learn from scientists in the field. Shell chose Cetus, and Wanda met Michael.DeVlaminck went on to hold management positions at Cetus and Somatix, an early startup in the emerging field of gene therapy, where she managed environmental compliance and intellectual property. In 1992, she became a cofounder of the biotech start-up Avigen, focused on small-molecule therapeutics to treat neurological and neuromuscular disorders.New OpportunitiesDeVlaminck remained passionate about science and public health, Konrad says, until the autoimmune disease scleroderma cut her life short. During her last few months, she reminded him of her desire to make an impact on Caltech. In funding an undergraduate scholarship, Konrad and deVlaminck support Caltech’s promise to meet students’ demonstrated unmet needs. The Institute practices need-blind admissions for all U.S. citizen and permanent residents, a policy that is critical to its ongoing efforts to bring the most qualified students to study on campus.“Konrad and deVlaminck’s generous gift reflects her adventurous spirit and dedication to the public good,” says Joe Shepherd (PhD ’81), the C. L. “Kelly” Johnson Professor of Aeronautics and Mechanical Engineering; holder of the Allen V. C. Davis and Lenabelle Davis Leadership Chair, Student Affairs; and Caltech’s vice president for student affairs. “Thanks to the Wanda Celine deVlaminck Scholarship, generations of ambitious students will have the opportunity to attend Caltech and make a positive impact on the world.”To learn more about how you can help Caltech students by supporting scholarships, please contact Nicole Weaver-Goller, Senior Director of Development for Regional Major Gifts and Student Affairs, at (626) 395-6069 or [email protected] Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Scott Wiener’s housing bill, putting it on hold until 2020, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.“It doesn’t mean we’re not going to focus on solving the housing crisis,” said Sen. Anthony Portantino, noting that his committee voted to shelve Wiener’s bill, SB50, until next year. “It just means that this isn’t the right fix at this time to do that.”“One of the challenges that SB50 had was that it wasn’t nuanced enough for jurisdictions that are already doing the right thing,” said Marina Wiant, VP of Government Affairs for the California Housing Consortium, which promotes affordable housing development. “So much energy has been focused on SB50. Time will tell where the energy will then shift.”Other proposals, including SB330 by Sen. Nancy Skinner, overlap with aspects of SB50.  SB330 would prohibit cities with high rents and low vacancy rates from placing restrictions on housing construction for the next five years, and bar those cities from capping the number of units that can receive permits, adopting new parking requirements and changing zoning laws to require less dense housing. Many of these bills are likely to face the same problems as SB50, including opposition from local governments worried about losing control over how their communities grow. Some advocates have stated that with SB50 out of the picture, landlords and builders will have less incentive to strike a deal on preserving low-cost housing and protecting people who live there. Wiener’s SB50 is unlikely to return to session as tate Senate President Pro Tempore announced that she will “not circumvent the decision” made by Portantino and his Senate Appropriations Committee to delay the bill until 2020. “Regardless of my own personal feelings about this critical issue, part of my job as the leader of the Senate is to uphold the authority and decisions of committee chairs,” Atkins said in a statement. “Short of significantly amending the bill and limiting its applications in large swaths of the state, there was no path to move forward this year.” About Author: Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe Home / Daily Dose / California Affordable Housing Bill Stalls—What Now?
