Forget a Cash ISA! I’d buy dirt-cheap FTSE 100 dividend growth stocks

first_imgForget a Cash ISA! I’d buy dirt-cheap FTSE 100 dividend growth stocks Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. 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. Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Unilever. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Unilever. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Halma. 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Cash ISA interest rates have plunged in recent months. As such, it’s now harder than ever for savers to get an attractive return on their hard-earned cash. And with this being the case, FTSE 100 dividend growth stocks are starting to look more attractive as alternatives. With that in mind, here are two cheap FTSE 100 dividend growth stocks that may be worth buying for income and capital growth today. 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…FTSE 100 dividend growth stocksAs FTSE 100 dividend stocks go, Halma (LSE: HLMA) has a track record. The company has increased its dividend at or above the rate of inflation every year in recent history. It doesn’t look as if this trend is going to come to an end any time soon. The business, which specialises in supplying health and safety equipment, has seen a surge in demand for its products in the coronavirus crisis. The FTSE 100 company has also been complementing organic growth in recent years with acquisitions. These acquisitions have taken the group into areas such as fire safety, which is a defensive and critical market. The demand for these services is only likely to grow over the long run. Therefore, Halma seems to have the potential to continue growing its dividend every year. The payout is covered 3.3 times by earnings per share, which leaves plenty of headroom for growth. The FTSE 100 stock also appears cheap at current levels. City analysts believe the shares could be worth as much as 2,385p within the next few months. These figures exclude the company’s recent trading performance, which has been better than expected. As a result, analysts may soon revise their guidance higher. It might be worth snapping up a share of this dividend growth champion before the rest of the market catches on to the opportunity. UnileverAlongside Halma, I believe FTSE 100 dividend stock Unilever (LSE: ULVR) also looks attractive at current levels.As one of the world’s largest consumer goods companies, Unilever is a relatively defensive investment. The demand for its food and personal hygiene products should only increase in line with the global population over the long run. What’s more, management has recently been building out the group’s diversification by acquiring new companies. That should help ensure that Unilever stays relevant and has a product set that remains attractive to consumers. This FTSE 100 dividend stock also has an impressive track record of growing its dividend at or above the rate of inflation over the long run. Over the past six years, for example, the payout has grown at a compound annual rate of 8%. The stock’s dividend yield currently stands at 3.4%, and the payout is covered 1.5 times by earnings per share. Analysts are also highly optimistic on the outlook for the stock in the near term. They believe shares in the FTSE 100 consumer goods giant could be worth as much as 5,100p, an increase of 20% from current levels. These figures indicate that the stock may have the potential to deliver high total returns for investors in the years ahead.  Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 12th July, 2020 | More on: HLMA ULVR Image source: Getty Images. center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

All Blacks squad named for Tri-Nations

first_imgWELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND – JUNE 29: Coach Graham Henry talks to his players during a New Zealand All Blacks training session at Rugby League Park on June 29, 2011 in Wellington, New Zealand. (Photo by Hagen Hopkins/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Graham Henry talks to his squad during training for the Tri-NationsAll Blacks Coach Graham Henry and his Assistant Coaches Steve Hansen and Wayne Smith have today announced the squad for the 2011 Investec Tri Nations and the All Blacks Test against Fiji For Canterbury, with the selection of new All Black Jarrad Hoeata and the return of several All Blacks the key features of the 30-strong squad.The squad, which will be captained by All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, is made up of 16 forwards and 14 backs and packs huge experience with 1028 Test caps between them.There is a sole new All Black in the squad, Highlanders and Taranaki lock Jarrad Hoeata, who started every match for the Highlanders this year in his outstanding second Investec Super Rugby season.  The 27-year-old, who was born in Tauranga, made his provincial debut in 2006, played for the New Zealand Sevens team the same year and also featured strongly for New Zealand Maori in last year’s Sealord Centenary Series.All Blacks Coach Graham Henry said:  “We are excited to be naming this first squad of the year in what is undoubtedly a huge year not only for the All Blacks but the country as a whole.”Henry also offered his congratulations to Hoeata: “He is the only new All Black selected so this will be a very special moment for him. He thoroughly deserves his selection and we congratulate him.”Four players named in the Investec Tri Nations squad are recovering from injuries – Tony Woodcock (foot), Isaia Toeava (hip), Hosea Gear (hamstring) and Israel Dagg (thigh muscle) – so the All Blacks selectors have also announced that four players will assemble with the squad as injury cover: Crusaders prop Wyatt Crockett, Hurricanes winger Cory Jane, Chiefs winger Sitiveni Sivivatu and Highlanders winger Ben Smith.Henry said they were confident that the rehabilitation plans in place for the four injured players would see them play some part in the Investec Tri Nations.“They are all making good progress on their individual rehab plans and will play some ITM Cup games before returning to Test match rugby.”The squad also sees the return of a number of players to the All Blacks, most notably 61-Test Blues and All Blacks lock Ali Williams who made his rugby comeback this year after two years out of the game with Achilles and shoulder injuries.  Corey Flynn, Richard Kahui and Piri Weepu also return to the All Blacks after injury ruled them out of contention for last year’s Telecom BackingBlack Grand Slam tour to the Northern Hemisphere.One player, Blues and North Harbour lock Anthony Boric was not considered due to the foot injury, suffered in the Blues’ Investec Super Rugby Finals Series qualifying match against the Waratahs last month. All Blacks v South Africa. Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth,South Africa, 5.05PM, Saturday 20 AugustAll Blacks v Australia. Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Australia, 8.05PM,Saturday 27 August “Our first Test against Fiji in Dunedin will be an important first step in our season, plus there’s extra significance because we are playing for the people of Canterbury.  The thoughts of the team are still with the folk of Canterbury as they try to rebuild their lives so we hope we see as many fans as possible at Carisbrook for this fundraising match,” Henry added.“The Investec Tri Nations also remains an important competition for the team this year.  We are proud of the record we have achieved over the years and the fact that we have held the Bledisloe Cup since 2003 and it is crucial as we look to build towards the Rugby World Cup.”The All Blacks will continue their preparations with a two-day camp in Auckland next week (Thursday and Friday).  The team will then assemble in Dunedin on Monday 18 July to prepare for the Test against Fiji at Carisbrook on Friday 22 July.The All Blacks squad (with province and Test caps in brackets) is:Forwards: John Afoa                      Auckland (30)Corey Flynn                  Canterbury (12)Ben Franks                   Tasman (7)Owen Franks                Canterbury (22)Jarrad Hoeata               Taranaki *Andrew Hore                 Taranaki (50)Jerome Kaino               Auckland (37)Richie McCaw (capt)   Canterbury (94)Keven Mealamu           Auckland (83)Liam Messam               Waikato (6)Kieran Read                  Canterbury (30)Adam Thomson           Otago (17)Brad Thorn                    Canterbury (50)Samuel Whitelock       Canterbury (13)Ali Williams                   Auckland (61)Tony Woodcock            North Harbour (74)Backs: Daniel Carter                Canterbury (79)Jimmy Cowan              Southland (44)Israel Dagg                    Hawke’s Bay (6)Andy Ellis                      Canterbury (18)Hosea Gear                   Wellington (6)Zac Guildford                Hawke’s Bay (4)Richard Kahui              Waikato (11)Mils Muliaina                Waikato (94)Ma’a Nonu                    Wellington (56)Colin Slade                   Canterbury (1)Conrad Smith               Wellington (45)Isaia Toeava                  Auckland (30)Piri Weepu                    Wellington (44)Sonny Bill Williams     Canterbury (4) * New All Black Investec Tri Nations All Blacks v South Africa.

It is a single family residence located near Kinokawa in Wakayama prefecture. One can feel the rich terrain that extends from the Kino River, with a rich mountain range spreading around. The surroundings are persimmon fields, along with farmhouses, private houses, and barns for farm equipment, thus creating a very calm scenery. A thought about creating a modern barn on the site that was originally a persimmon field and to create an environment for living there, crossed the architect’s mind.Save this picture!© Kaori lchikawaSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Kaori lchikawaThe barn has a simple construction and form. In this design, a simple wooden frame construction method and a simple form with a gable roof were adopted. The outer wall is made of corrugated cement board, wood wool cement board, etc. Most of the internal finish is plywood with the barn having simple structure made using the industrial products. As a space where humans and nature confront each other, it was decided that half of the barn would be inside and half would be outside. The architecture and the surrounding environment should be able to respond positively to one another was another intention of this design.Save this picture!© Kaori lchikawaEnvironment and topography response of Kinokawa.This area has a history of flooding the Kino River in the past, and the surrounding private houses have been hit by flooding on the first floor. Therefore, we considered to raise the main living level above the assumed level of inundation. Instead of simply raising the floor level, we thought of creating topographic features inside and outside the site by repeating the rich terrain of the surrounding mountains on the site. Warehouses and water supply areas are planned at the bottom of the terrain (areas that may be flooded). It was designed to create a vague interior and exterior space by introducing terrain uplift to the outside of the half of the barn, and to draw the wind blowing in the east-west direction into the semi-external space and into the internal space.Save this picture!© Kaori lchikawaAn ambiguous space is created that can be said to be semi-internal and semi-external, setting up an environment where residents can face the nature and make extensions in the future. The rainwater that falls from the roof will flow through the site, and the sewer will be planned so that it will permeate the entire site, and the other soil will be gradually planted with local plants.

After this corona vortex, the time at home and the role of the house must be re-considered, but also the nature weaved into the homes will add even more meaning to human life.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has selected Tumbleweed MailGate to help it deal with spam e-mail, which currently accounts for 60% of all e-mail received by the charity.RoSPA has implemented Tumbleweed Communications’ MailGate 2.2 anti-spam appliance to try to reduce the amount of time its 120 employees spend sorting and deleting spam from their legitimate e-mail.RoSPA evaluated a number of different approaches to deal with spam including software and outsourced email-filtering services but decided that an appliance was the best fit for their needs. Advertisementcenter_img Howard Lake | 4 November 2004 | News Hitesh Mehta, Systems Analyst, RoSPA commented: “We needed a simple but powerful anti-spam solution which we could implement quickly and would require little maintenance, enabling RoSPA to concentrate on our mission without continued frustration. Tumbleweed MailGate 2.2 was the perfect fit for our requirements”. Tumbleweed’s MailGate 2.2 is an appliance that uses artificial intelligence Intent-Based Filtering (IBF) that analyses the “intent” of e-mail messages much like a human being would. To further increase the power of MailGate, RoSPA are also using Tumbleweed’s Dynamic Anti-spam Service (DAS), an Internet-based subscription service that downloads updated anti-spam heuristics up to six times per day. By analysing both spam and legitimate e-mail gathered from worldwide sources, the Dynamic Anti-spam Service helps minimise the number of “false positives” – where legitimate e-mail gets blocked by traditional heuristics-based spam filters.

Consistently dated Atlantic sediment cores over the last 40 thousand years

first_imgRapid changes in ocean circulation and climate have been observed in marine-sediment and ice cores over the last glacial period and deglaciation, highlighting the non-linear character of the climate system and underlining the possibility of rapid climate shifts in response to anthropogenic greenhouse gas forcing. To date, these rapid changes in climate and ocean circulation are still not fully explained. One obstacle hindering progress in our understanding of the interactions between past ocean circulation and climate changes is the difficulty of accurately dating marine cores. Here, we present a set of 92 marine sediment cores from the Atlantic Ocean for which we have established age-depth models that are consistent with the Greenland GICC05 ice core chronology, and computed the associated dating uncertainties, using a new deposition modeling technique. This is the first set of consistently dated marine sediment cores enabling paleoclimate scientists to evaluate leads/lags between circulation and climate changes over vast regions of the Atlantic Ocean. Moreover, this data set is of direct use in paleoclimate modeling studies.last_img read more
