Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. With the coronavirus outbreak still causing uncertainty in the market, now could be an excellent time to buy defensive shares.The market is likely to remain turbulent for some time. Financial analysts are still trying to determine the impact that the virus will have on the global economy. With more uncertainty on the horizon, I think buying defensive stocks could be a great strategy to weather the storm.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…Defensive dividend shareUnlike other FTSE 100 businesses, energy company SSE (LSE: SSE) is committed to its dividend. In a recent trading update, SSE announced its board would be recommending a full-year dividend of 80p per share.If the business maintains its dividend, I believe income investors who might be considering selling their positions in Shell or BT could seek out SSE shares.The business acknowledges that there is a possibility that the economic fallout of the coronavirus outbreak may harm its results. It is a situation that the company is monitoring closely, but “has not so far had any material impact on SSE’s financial results for 2019/20”. As a clean infrastructure business, SSE might avoid the worst of the economic damage caused by the virus, unlike other industries.As the demand for cleaner energy increases, I would expect this to have a positive impact on SSE’s revenue growth and profitability over the long term. This outlook will please buyers of defensive shares and growth investors alike.SSE shares are currently trading with a prospective dividend yield of 7.5%. The business hopes to increase its dividend payments in the coming years to at least the rate of inflation. With SSE’s generous dividend and defensive nature, this could be a great share to buy and hold.British American TobaccoTobacco stocks have been out of favour with investors for some time, due to overall consumption declining in many places around the world. Of course, the volume of cigarettes sold will probably continue to decline in the future. So far, tobacco companies have managed this reduction in volume by increasing prices.However, in a recent update, British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) said it had a strong start to the year, with volumes increasing by 0.4%. Despite the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the impact of coronavirus, the company is committed to its high single figure earnings growth target for 2020. This will please buyers of defensive shares, who are on the lookout for stable earnings in times of economic uncertainty.Despite this, its share price is down by 6% in the year-to-date. Consequently, the shares have a price-to-earnings ratio of 10.In the future, BATs plans to increase margins further and to convert 90% of adjusted profit into operating cash flow. The group is conscious that customers will move away from cigarette products. It has an ambitious aim of reaching £5bn of revenue in its alternative tobacco and nicotine products.With the slump in its share price and defensive qualities, now could be a great time to invest in the company.

Can I retire by 50 using the passive income from FTSE 100 dividend investing?

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares You might think that retiring by 50 is too much of a push. In truth, it mainly depends on what age you’re starting from, and how much you can look to invest on a regular basis. Basing it on someone aged 30, investing £1,000 a month, it isn’t as much of a stretch as you might think. The key element is picking structurally sound FTSE 100 firms to invest in, and making sure you reinvest the passive income you receive from the dividends. Let’s take a look in more detail.Investing in strong FTSE 100 firmsWhen I talk about investing for early retirement, I need to buy into firms that’ll be around for decades to come. With around 20 years as my investment timeframe, I want to ensure that any investments are sound in the long term. So I’d be staying away from FTSE 100 stocks that look vulnerable to the impact of Covid-19. The past six months has given me good data to be able to see this clearly. If the pandemic has really hurt a business, it’s unlikely to continue to pay out a dividend. The cash flow will have to be retained within the business to strengthen the balance sheet.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…In order for me to pick up passive income from dividend investing, I need to focus more on resilient sectors. Good examples here are some firms within financial services. I recently wrote about the positive stance I have on Schroders,the asset manager. It currently offers a dividend yield of over 5%. Another sector I’d look to is consumer staples, such as supermarkets. Morrisons currently has a dividend yield of 4.18%. The consumer need for the goods offered by the supermarket should ensure revenue (and thus cash flow) remains strong into the future.Dividend reinvestment to boost incomeLet’s say I manage to invest £1,000 a month with an average dividend yield of 5%. If we assume that I can reinvest all of my dividends at the same yield (5%), then I can make my money work even harder. This is because passive income from dividends can be used to generate even more passive income over time by reinvesting it.Looking at the bigger picture, investing £1,000 a month with a 5% dividend yield will give me a pot of just under £400,000 for my retirement at the end of the 20 years. Regardless of your plans for life past 50, this will certainly go a long way to helping to achieve them! The main element that boosts the return is both the reinvestment of dividends but also the regularity of investing. Putting some money away each month is easier to budget for rather than trying to invest £12,000 once a year. By meeting certain parameters, I can look to retire by 50 from using the passive income from dividend investing. I need to pick sound stocks that are robust enough to see out the pandemic, and make sure I reinvest the dividend payouts. jonathansmith1 has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Friday Funnies – Falconed by his own teammate!

first_imgFriday Sep 30, 2016 Friday Funnies – Falconed by his own teammate! The end to the first half of Friday’s Mitre 10 Cup match between Wellington and Southland didn’t quite go to plan, as the ball was commically kicked directly into the face of young Peter Umaga-Jensen, by none other than his own teammate, Malo Tuitama.The referee actually ruled a knock-on, perhaps just keen on getting a sip of water after a fast paced first half that included a number of quality tries.The rest of the match was less complicated, as Wellington went on to score some lovely tries for a convincing 60-21 win.

Upper White Cover Crop Program Earns Watershed Protection Award

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter On July 17, the Upper White Cover Crop Program was recognized by the White River Alliance as recipient of the 2020 Exceptional Commitment to Watershed Protection Award. The program, offered by the Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA), the Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC), Beck’s Hybrids and Cargill, gives Indiana corn and soybean farmers in the Upper White River Watershed an opportunity to participate in a fully-funded, cover crop trial program this fall. ICMC, ISA and its partners are investing to help farmers in the Upper White River Watershed to learn how to reap the benefits of cover crops while improving soil health and water quality.“What many people don’t understand about farming is that it always changes,” said Hancock County, Ind. farmer Ronnie Mohr. “I’ve been doing this for a long time, and we are always looking for better ways to grow my crops. Sometimes those answers don’t provide an immediate return. Sometimes those answers are to make sure we have healthy farmland and top soil for years to come. In a way, that’s what the Upper White Cover Crop Program provides.”The White River Alliance is comprised of local governments, industry, utilities, universities, agriculture and citizens of a 16-county region of central Indiana, and it exists to improve and protect water quality in the watershed. The Exceptional Commitment to Watershed Protection Award honors an individual or organization that has demonstrated a strong commitment to water resources and watershed protection.ISA and ICMC are honored to work with strong partners such as Beck’s Hybrids and Cargill to encourage Hoosier farmers to protect their farmland for future generations.“The Upper White Cover Crop Program offers farmers a long-term way to evaluate cover crops and soil health on their farm,” said Ryan Moore, Beck’s Small Seeds Product Manager. “Beck’s is proud to be part of a program that focuses on nutrient reduction strategies while helping farmers understand the benefits cover crops offer. We look forward to continuing this type of program in the years to come.”The program helps offset the cost of planting cover crops and possible yield loss, but it also helps growers to see the future benefits.“Cargill’s participation in the Upper White Cover Crop Program is driven by our strategy of connecting farmers to the resources they need to keep improving their operations,” said Sharon Spies, Director of Sustainability with the Cargill Agricultural Supply Chain (CASCNA). “We know that adopting new practices such as cover crops is a major investment and creates yield risk. That is why we are excited to be part of a program where cover crop seeds and application are free to the farmer and access to agronomic advice is easy.”Cargill’s origination team in Tipton, Ind., which consists Kelly Pall, Bailee Cook and Dana Hubbell, concurred. “Farmers in our area were happy to learn about this program, and they responded with great enthusiasm to our call for applications,” Pall explained. “We hope that this is just the first of many years of partnership with them on their journey to reduce nutrient runoff and optimize their use of nitrogen.”The deadline to enroll in the program is July 31.Those with questions about this opportunity should contact ISA/ICMC Program Manager Ariel Kittle by email at [email protected] or call 317-220-4115.

Ross resigned as CEO in March 2019, soon after the SEC filed a civil complaint against DLI, which resulted in the appointment of a court-ordered receiver in early April 2019.By 2017, just five years after Ross founded DLI, the firm had over $1 billion in assets under management. According to the indictment, Ross allegedly directed DLI to invest the funds’ assets in, among other things, a company that loaned money to small businesses and retailers.The funds made money when the borrowers on the loans made timely payments. The indictment alleges that rather than disclose some of the loans were not performing, Ross falsified monthly reports to make it appear borrowers were making payments. The “payments” actually came from fee rebates given by the company originating the loans, authorities said.“By lying about the true status of the loans, Ross caused DLI to overstate the value of these loans on the funds’ books and fraudulently inflate the funds’ value, according to the indictment. Specifically, Ross allegedly caused the monthly asset values of the funds to be cumulatively inflated by over $300 million over the course of about four years. By fraudulently inflating the value of the funds, Ross was able to collect millions of dollars in fees he otherwise would not have been able to charge to clients, “according to the indictment.Prosecutors say Ross, to help conceal his scheme, allegedly arranged for the sale of approximately $55 million of the loans to a third-party in 2017, but once again inflated the value of these loans by lying about their status, falsely telling the buyer that borrowers had been making payments on many of these loans, according to the indictment.Ross was expected to be arraigned on Tuesday afternoon in U.S. District Court in downtown Los Angeles.Each of the 10 wire fraud counts in the indictment carries a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
