As HSBC (LON:HSBA) suspends dividends, here’s what I’d do in April

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Dividend income investors would have noticed the headlines that our biggest banks are axing their dividends immediately. This is an important development for their management as well as shareholders. Therefore today, I’d like to discuss what the news may mean for investors in HSBC Holdings (LSE: HSBA).HSBC is a global bankThe group is one of the largest banks and financial organisations worldwide. About three-quarters of this FTSE 100 member’s profit comes from mostly corporate clients in Asia. It also has substantial operations in the UK, as well as the European Union.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 Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) has recently been in consultation with the UK banking sector. And on 31 March, it requested they suspend all plans to return money to shareholders.Thus many banks, including Lloyds, RBS, Barclays, Standard Chartered, Santander and HSBC, won’t be paying dividends or buying back shares, at least for the time being.Before the announcement, HSBC’s dividend yield stood at a juicy 8.9%. And the shares were expected to go ex-dividend in mid-May. However, this payment isn’t going to happen.So what can current, or potential, HSBA investors do now? Should they sell, hold, or buy the stock at this point?Investors would need to answer this question in light of their risk/return profiles. But I’d like to highlight several points that may help them make better informed decisions.First of all, I must remind our readers that banking is a cyclical industry. A bank’s fortunes are closely tied to the economic health of its main markets — i.e., China, including Hong Kong, in the case of HSBC. Any decision you’d take should ideally be based on your views about this important region.Is China on the mend?In February, HSBC management reported a 53% fall in full-year profits and announced it would lay off 35,000 staff. As part of its plan “to build a platform for sustainable growth,” the group will be cutting costs.The coronavirus outbreak, which started in China and is now a global pandemic, has added further pressure on the company. Yet current news from China suggests the country might have contained the viral outbreak and its economy may indeed rebound faster than initially anticipated. Then the banking giant is likely to be a beneficiary of the positive economic developments.However, if we have a prolonged global economic downturn, China and Hong Kong would also be further affected. And it’d possibly take several quarters for the HSBA share price to recover. Therefore, the rest of the year might bring further volatility and require patience on the part of long-term investors.Year-to-date, the shares are down over 30%, hovering around 410p. I believe most of the bad news might already be in the price. I’d be a buyer of HSBC, especially if the price goes toward, or even under, 400p, a level seen in 1998 and 2009. On the other hand, if you currently hold HSBC stock, you may want to hold on to your position to ride the wave. Alternatively you may diversify into other industries you believe may do better in a more challenging economic reality. You may also consider buying a FTSE 100 tracker.If you’re not sure what may be the best option for your portfolio, you may also want to talk to a financial advisor.

3 high-dividend value FTSE 100 shares I’d buy now

Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Jordan Simmons owns shares in Royal Dutch Shell and Legal and General. The Motley Fool UK has recommended GlaxoSmithKline. 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. There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Jordan Simmons | Wednesday, 7th October, 2020 | More on: GSK LGEN RDSB Enter Your Email Address Overall, the FTSE 100 has seen a sizeable decline this year; however, this also provides the opportunity to purchase businesses at a greater value than previously. Here are three value shares with high dividend yields that I’d buy now.Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) has had a tough time this year with the sharp drop in demand for oil, as most continue to work remotely and international travel is still limited. The wholesale price of oil, measured as Brent, reduced from $65 per barrel in January to just above $40 dollars where it has stabilised at in recent months. As such, Shell’s margins and ability to generate cash have been affected.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 response, the FTSE 100 giant suspended its share buyback programme and cut its quarterly dividend for the first time since World War II, from 47 cents to 16 cents per share. Inevitably the share price has dropped, reducing from around 2,200p a share in January to 952p today, but now yields a bargain price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 6 with an impressive dividend yield of 5%.Shell has embarked on a number of initiatives to adapt to lower oil prices long term, some of these being the selling of underperforming assets, the reduction of operational cost and diversification into renewable energy production, all aiming towards Shell’s goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2050.At the current share price, I think Royal Dutch Shell presents excellent value for a business heading in the right direction.Legal and General (LSE: LGEN) was one of a handful of FTSE 100 businesses that kept its dividend despite pressure on businesses to reduce them by the Bank of England earlier this year. This was justified by a strong balance sheet with a dividend covered twice by earnings. At the current price of 199p, the P/E ratio is just over 6 and the dividend yield is an unrivalled 8.7%.Moving forward the company has proven robust. Its 2020 first half results revealed a marginal loss in operating profit of -2%; however, three out of its five operations delivered growth. This demonstrates its financial robustness at a time when other businesses have experienced steep losses.Overall Legal and General has proved to be a resilient and well managed business that, at the current share price, presents great value.GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) is another FTSE 100 company that has proved to have a resilient business model this year, even despite significant outlay as it contributes towards a vaccine for Covid-19. The shares currently trade at 1,430p each, with a P/E ratio of 11.7 and a dividend of 5.5%. The dividend is also secure, covered by one and a half times earnings and its recent second quarter results showed that profit more than doubled from the same time last year.Currently, GSK is coming to the end of a major restructure which I think will provide for a more solid business in terms of sales and revenue growth long term. Overall, Royal Dutch Shell, Legal and General and GlaxoSmithKline have shown their ability to weather the current economic downturn as well as showing promising growth long term. Diversified by operating in separate markets, coupled with their current price and dividend yield, I think their value is too great to miss.

Super14 Plays of the Week – Round 14

first_imgFriday May 11, 2007 Super14 Plays of the Week – Round 14 So the Super 14 is coming to an end for 2007. We’ve witnessed an amazingly close tournament this year with many highs and lows. Thankfully, more highs. The South Africans actually came to the party this year, whereas the Aussies’ invitation clearly got lost in the mail.On the eve of the Semis the atmosphere here in Springbok land is buzzing. It’s the first time we’ve hosted a home semi final since Super Rugby’s inception, let alone two semi finals. The best part about it is that as close as it was, the top 4 teams seem to have made it through. I do tend to feel for the Cheifs though, as they had some great performances where they lost narrowly by a last minute try or conversion.So this week’s ‘Plays of the Week’ will probably be the last for the tournament. So sit back, relax, and enjoy. But don’t forget to look out for the big man Sione Lauki’s massive handoff on the legend Richie McCaw. A true clash of the titans.

Ryan Kankowski knocked out in big tackle by Carlo Del Fava

first_imgSunday Jun 22, 2008 Ryan Kankowski knocked out in big tackle by Carlo Del Fava A tackle or a shoulder charge? The referee thought the latter, and proceeded to yellow card Italian second-row Carlo del Fava following his knock out hit on Springbok & Sharks star Ryan Kankowski. The electrifying number eight was playing in just his third Test for South Africa when he suffered a head on head collision with the oncoming Italian defence. Kankowski was out cold for a few minutes before he was able to be manoeuvred onto a stretcher and taken from the ground. Del Fava looked to be unlucky to have received the sin-binning, with the clash of heads possibly causing more damage than the shoulder itself, and he showed remorse and genuine concern when standing to clap off the Bok flyer. Kankowski recovered well though, and was actually sit up in the change room minutes after being carried off the ground. Despite this, medical protocol requires that he be properly assessed before he can be cleared to play again. Up until a few years ago there was a mandatory two week suspension for concussion, but more recently cognitive tests have been introduced to determine the extent and nature of concussion. So Kankowski could theoretically be cleared to play in the Tri-Nations opener against New Zealand in Wellington on 5 July, and go on to play a vital role in the Springbok’s 2008 Tri-Nations campaign.  ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

A residential and commercial building will be extended into an existing courtyard. First of all, nothing extraordinary appears. However, the special feature of this building task – contrary to the usual backyard situations – is the visibility of the new structure of the adjoining Peterskirchhof.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThis park-like complex with its bordering cemetery wall is historically listed. Conceptual thinking does not focus on demarcation, but rather on building on and accentuating the various layers of time available. The idea of implementation is as old as the architectural history itself: The existing wall of sandstone and bricks is being extended with bricks.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe new structure will therefore be built with a brick façade above the cemetery wall. The exposed brickwork will be horizontally layered with different stone formats, so that the layering also manifests itself in the materiality. Bricks from the Danish company Petersen Tegl were selected for this purpose. In order to continue the design of the cemetery wall in the façade of the new building, the masonry was bricked up with three different levels of brick.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe formats for this were Flensburger format (about 11,200 pieces), Danish normal format (about 2250 pieces) and Hamburger format (about 3580 pieces). The cubature of the new building is precisely matched with regard to the building mass and the lighting situations. The new building has two courtyards on the ground floor and generous roof terraces on the first and second floors, which add value to both the new building and the existing building.Save this picture!FacadeOn the ground floor of the new building there are new offices of Stylepark. Ideal room scenarios have been created for the needs of the company: two spacious open workspaces with rooms for retreats as well as a central coffee point as a meeting place for the employees are available. The two courtyards designed to illuminate the premises are used as lounges in the summer months and allow for visual relationships between the individual workplaces in the building. On the 1st and 2nd floor are each a residential unit.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerA 2-room apartment with 44 square meters area and a 1-room apartment with 60 square meters area. Since the organization of the apartments is not only by walls, but rather by different room heights, the design allows a generous room impression despite limited living space. Generous window openings in different sizes allow the park to grow into the living spaces. The development potential of the extension is limited due to regulations regarding the distance between buildings. Its cubature is precisely matched to the available cubic capacity and lighting situations.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerProject gallerySee allShow lessTatiana Bilbao: “The Greatest Challenge in Designing the Mazatlán Aquarium Was Recre…InterviewsCall for Entries: International Urban Design Ideas Competition for Berlin-Brandenbu…IdeasProject locationAddress:Fráncfort del Meno, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Event honors Samiya ‘Goldii’ Abdullah Jamal’s life

first_imgSamiya ‘Goldii’ Abdullah JamalToo brief. Well-lived.On what would have been her 37th birthday, on Jan. 9, family, friends, well-wishers, supporters and organizations came together with great enthusiasm and dignity to celebrate the indelible life of Samiya “Goldii” Abdullah Jamal, daughter of Wadiya Jamal and Mumia Abu-Jamal, in Philadelphia.Very sadly, the deeply beloved daughter of the Jamals died on Dec. 17 after a long struggle against breast cancer. She leaves behind two lovely daughters, affectionately nicknamed Dolly and Puddy, 11 and 4 years old respectively.In her too-brief yet remarkable life, Goldii had also become an accomplished musician, rapper with a message and strong advocate for political prisoners, especially on behalf of her world-famous and falsely imprisoned father, Mumia Abu-Jamal, starting at age 4! Goldii had recently earned a master’s degree with honors in school and mental health counseling from the University of Pennsylvania as well.The event, organized by MOVE; the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal; Goldii’s mother, family and friends; unsung community activists, residents and concerned individuals; and local artists and musicians, was held at the historic Kingsessing Recreation Center in the evening and was very well-received. The Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (New York City) was also in attendance.Well over 100 people gathered for this “Celebration of Life and Fundraiser” for the Goldii’s children. The slammin’ food, atmosphere, spoken-word performances, testimonials and dynamite music were most befitting for the occasion, and included the participation of large numbers of children of all ages as well.Participants included Tim Hicks; Jade and Ice, with two backup singers; and a poet named Sekou, who gave a moving tribute to Goldii, Dolly and Puddy and expressed deep love to their mom. An on-the-spot portrait painting of Goldii was created and a beautiful blanket for the girls with a picture of their mom on it was unveiled, to the prolonged applause of the audience for each presentation. The Jamal sons played key roles in making this homage a critical success.In spite of her grief and loss, Sister Wadiya Jamal was most gracious to all well-wishers and sympathizers, as she acknowledged their presence and contributions as well as her own pain.While a sad occasion in some respects, the celebration of the life of Goldii was a moving tribute to a most courageous and loving woman, whose high regard for life, justice, humanity and her dad is best expressed in her own words:“He is an innocent man and the commonwealth has always known this, but being too Black, too smart and too strong. … The government will silence anyone that possesses the power to open the minds of the people.” Right on.Hagins is a co-chairperson of the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (NYC).FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

NCGA Committed to Increasing Corn Demand

first_img SHARE By Andy Eubank – Mar 4, 2016 Previous articleDelayed La Nina to be a Boon for CropsNext articleFarm Groups and Technology Providers Develop New Tool To Aid Farmers In Understanding Big Data Contracts Andy Eubank SHARE Facebook Twitter NCGA pushing for demandDespite the good times awaiting visitors in New Orleans, farmers attending Commodity Classic here are facing some tough economic times and difficult decisions. The event is presented by the nation’s corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum commodity groups, and when National Corn Growers Association President Chip Bowling met with the media, he outlined the current climate.“From 2013 to 2015 net farm income dropped by 54 percent. It’s expected to drop even more this year. This represents the largest decline in farm economy in a hundred years. Since 2010 the price of corn has declined 34 percent and at the same time the price of our inputs has not come down in the same way. Most corn farmers are well past the point of prices being well below the cost of production and they have been for some time now.”Bowling said the ripple effect when farmers have to tighten their belts goes through not just rural communities but throughout the national economy.“Implement dealers are selling less equipment, manufacturers are scaling back in production, and agribusinesses have laid off employees,” he said. “For those of us who remember farming in the 80’s, this is troubling and concerning.”Bowling said his association is committed to helping farmers by working to ensure a continued safety net and to improve profitable demand for the corn they grow. NCGA CEO Chris Novak said they’re in the process of formalizing programs to increase demand.“Chip led with the statement that these are tough times for our corn farmers,” Novak said. “We’ve got a safety net in place but we also know that if we have another bountiful crop that will continue to put financial pressure on our farmers, and that’s what we’re working to solve with these demand initiatives.”Bowling renewed the call for congress to support the Trans Pacific Partnership, a deal he said will be good for grain farmers and their partners in the livestock industry.
