Don’t save for retirement! 3 reasons why I’d rather buy dividend stocks today

first_imgDon’t save for retirement! 3 reasons why I’d rather buy dividend stocks today “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Sunday, 2nd February, 2020 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Planning for retirement can be a difficult process. For example, living within your means can be tough – especially with the cost of living being high. Then, deciding what to do with your spare capital can be challenging at a time when interest rates are relatively low and cash savings offer disappointing after-inflation returns.As such, now could be a good time to consider buying dividend stocks. They offer higher income returns than cash savings in many cases, while their potential to generate rising dividends could make them even more attractive in the long run. In addition, their scope to deliver capital growth could make a positive impact on your retirement plans.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…Income returnDespite the global stock market experiencing a bull market which has lasted for over ten years, many shares offer attractive yields at the present time. This may be because of the ongoing risks facing the world economy. The threat of a global trade war and geopolitical risks in the Middle East appear to have caused investors to adopt a cautious attitude towards shares in recent months. As such, there may be relatively high yields on offer across a variety of sectors.Certainly, dividends are less robust than the income return on cash savings. However, diversifying across a range of stocks could reduce overall risk. And, with the difference in return between cash and dividend stocks being relatively high, income shares could be more attractive on a risk/reward basis.Dividend growth potentialAs well as high income returns, many stocks offer dividend growth potential. This could mean that while dividend shares produce a higher income return than cash today, the gap between the returns of the two assets widens in the coming years. Interest rates could rise at a slow pace, while continued economic growth may lead to many stocks being able to afford higher annual shareholder payouts.Identifying companies that could deliver dividend growth could mean that investors focus on factors such as their track record of rising shareholder payouts, as well as their financial strength. Furthermore, the headroom a company has when making its dividend payments may provide guidance on whether it can afford to pay a higher proportion of profit as a dividend in future.Capital return prospectsAlongside the income appeal of dividend shares, the prospect of capital growth could make them even more attractive than cash savings. With interest rates being low, companies that offer a high yield and the prospect of dividend growth may become increasingly popular among investors. This could lead to their shares becoming increasingly in-demand.Furthermore, the payment of a rising dividend may signal that a company has a solid financial position. It may also convince investors that its management team is confident about its future prospects. This can lead to higher overall returns that improve your chances of building a sizeable nest egg for retirement.

Why I think the Tesco share price is deeply undervalued

first_img There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image: Tesco Why I think the Tesco share price is deeply undervalued I think the Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price is one of the most undervalued in the FTSE 100. Today, I’m going to explain why I hold this opinion. Deeply undervaluedTesco isn’t the most exciting business on the market. However, the company does provide an essential service to consumers around the UK through its supermarkets, wholesale business, and local stores.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…Further, customers are incentivised to shop in Tesco stores through its Clubcard scheme. In recent years, the company has been boosting its Clubcard offer by combining financial services, mobile phones, and, of course, food shopping. The corporation increasingly provides discounts in store for these card holders as a way of offsetting cheap prices offered by rivals. By encouraging consumers to sign up for the Clubcard scheme, Tesco has also built a vast trove of its customers’ data. This information has given the group an edge over competitors. By using the data, it can provide tailored discounts to customers and streamline its inventory process. Put simply, Tesco has a substantial competitive advantage both in the size of the operation and the data available to the group, which it can use to make better decisions. But despite these advantages, the stock is only trading at a modest premium to its sector. The Tesco share price is selling at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12.7, compared to 12 for Sainsbury’s and 12.4 for Morrisons. I think the firm deserves to trade at a significant premium to the sector, considering its advantages. What’s more, at the time of writing, the stock offers a dividend yield of around 4%. That’s above the market average and looks highly attractive in the current interest rate environment. The final reason why I think the Tesco share price is undervalued is its cash generation. The firm is aiming to produce a free cash flow of £1.2bn every year. This implies the stock is trading at a free cash flow yield of 6.8%.By comparison, fellow FTSE 100 giant Unilever is trading at a free cash flow yield of 5%. To put it another way, Tesco is around 36% cheaper on a cash flow basis.  Tesco share price risksWhile I believe the stock is undervalued, I can see why some investors might give the business a wide berth. Key risks to its growth include rising costs, which could eat away at profit margins. The retail sector is also incredibly competitive. Tesco has the advantage today, but it may not last long.These risks could hold back growth and damage those all-important profit margins, which may hurt the company’s dividend prospects. Still, despite these risks and challenges, I think the Tesco share price is deeply undervalued. As such, I’d buy the retail champion for my portfolio today as a value and income investment.  Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 17th June, 2021 | More on: TSCO Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img 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.

Picture an Irish country house nestled in the gently rolling hills of the County Cork. The client, a neurologist and psychiatrist, wanted to extend the house to include new living quarters and a master bedroom. In addition to the spatial extension, the new master bedroom is designed both to rest elevated on the neighboring hillside to get the best view of the wild-romantic Irish landscape, as well as to embed the house even stronger into the surrounding area. Save this picture!© Andreas BuschmannSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Andreas BuschmannThe new extension now connects directly to the existing building and stretches to the northerly hillside. At the foot of the small hill the house is bent vertically upwards. The new space uses the shape of the existing building as a springboard and develops it further into an expressive sculpture. This evolution results in intriguing spatial situations and relationships: The alternating legibility between classic house and expressive sculpture results in a harmonic yet iconographic building ensemble. The new relationships between the surrounding landscape and the generous flowing space enrich the living experience and contrast with the existing cottage.Save this picture!SectionIn the interior the distinctive bend of the existing cottage roof is mirrored in a new undulating spatial layer. The curved stair elements connect the living area on the ground floor with the elevated master bedroom up on the hillside.

Previously the location of a razed power plant on First Avenue between 35th and 36th Streets, the American Copper Buildings have become a dynamic landmark on Manhattan’s East Side.

Further, the units have floor to ceiling windows that boast sweeping views. Whether overlooking the East River, westward towards the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, to the north towards the United Nations headquarters or to the south to One World Trade, views in each cardinal direction are unobstructed and unmatched.Save this picture!Courtesy of SHoP ArchitectsWorking within tight building footprint restrictions, set by an approved ULURP plan, our team explored a variety of twin tower configurations and forms within the zoning-compliant envelope. The resulting massing was of two buildings that lean into one another, connected at their closest point by a skybridge. Community gathering takes place at three levels across the project. At grade, a food market and through-block passageway open to a new public park on the river side of the site. Lounge and amenity spaces for tenants and guests—including the lap pool—are located at the bridge level. And on the roof of the north tower there is a second, infinity-edged pool and a rooftop bar overlooking the entire city from an unobstructed vantage point. Through these strategically located community spaces, SHoP, along with our client and construction manager, JDS Development Group, aspired to create a pair of whose residents will truly feel at home.Save this picture!Courtesy of SHoP ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow less”Post-Digital” Drawing Valorizes the Ordinary and Renders it to Look Like the PastArticlesBAM Ranks the 20 Best Master of Architecture Programs in the World in 2018Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:626 1st Avenue, New York, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Governor Signs Holden’s Bill to Eliminate the Achievement Gap By Starting Teens on College and Career Pathways (AB 288)

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week After years of legislative effort, Assembly Majority Leader Chris Holden’s landmark legislation to increase college opportunity for thousands of California high school students will go into effect January 1.Governor Brown today signed Holden’s AB 288 College and Career Access Pathways Act to allow high school students, especially those in underserved communities, greater access to college courses and career tech classes at both high school and college campuses.“We need to expand opportunities for a broad range of students or lose our competitive edge with other states and other nations,” explained Assemblymember Holden. “Concurrent enrollment can motivate students who aren’t on the college track and provide opportunities for students who want to get started in their careers earlier by working towards a degree or certificate in career technical education. Even those who’ve struggled in high school classes can rise to the challenge, motivated by the chance to try on the role of a college student.”AB 288 creates a partnership between high schools and community colleges to remove barriers that historically kept underserved students from enrolling in concurrent enrollment programs. It will accelerate the number of credits students can take from 11 to 15 and give students limited priority in enrollment. It will also allow better access to career tech courses that may not be available at the high school level.“This bill is an example of how K-12 and higher education institutions can work together on a local level to solve persistent problems—in this case, how to create better pathways to college and career,” stated the Governor in his signing message.The measure was sponsored by California Community College Chancellor Brice W. Harris: “These partnerships will help high school students achieve college and career readiness and avoid remedial coursework when they begin their college careers,” Harris said. “This is critical because students who arrive at community colleges academically prepared and with some college credits already under their belt have a greater chance of achieving their goals.”“AB 288 will help ignite a sense of purpose and drive in high school students that is essential in today’s fast-paced world, and ensure that they are better qualified for college and for the jobs of our state’s ever-changing economy,” said Assembly Republican Leader Kristin Olsen, of Modesto, who jointly authored the bill. “I applaud the stakeholders involved in the development of this important bill, and thank the Governor for signing it into law.” Business News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Do I really need to study for the CIPD

first_img Comments are closed. I am an HR administrator in a fairly large HR department. My role isconcerned exclusively with training and development. I really love it andaccording to my appraisals, my performance is good. Our department recentlyissued an edict that everyone must either have or acquire a CIPD qualification.I can understand their thinking, but frankly I like my life as it is and Idon’t want to spend my leisure time studying and stressing about exams. Whatshould I do? Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMS Consultancy While you may like your life now, it does you no harm to think about thefuture. The team you are in may change or the company may face a downturn inbusiness. A professional qualification makes you more marketable. As you are at HR administrator level then you would be looking at eithercertificate programmes or national vocational qualifications at level three.Both can focus on either personnel or learning and development, and both leadto associate membership of the CIPD. Whichever you choose, neither involvesexams. The CPP/CTP certificates are assignment-based and the NVQs arework-based assessment. Many employees do not have their employers’ support with regard toprofessional development, so take the opportunity while it is there. Jo Redgwell, HR consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodes You need to assess where you want your career to be in two, five and 10years time. Will you be as happy in two years if you are still in the same roleliving the same lifestyle? If you decide to pursue a career in HR then the CIPD is a must. The CIPDqualification is not an easy course, admittedly, but it is an industry standard– the same way that accountants must sit their chartered exams. It provides younot only with background knowledge, which you will use long into your career,but additionally it is a benchmarking tool for future employers. It will take two years of dedicated study, but think about the possibilitiesthat will become available to you in the future. It will show employers youhave committed to something, have excellent time management skills and a desireto succeed. Cliff Dixon, consultant, Chiumento In 1989, Rosabeth Moss Kanter wrote: “If security no longer comes frombeing employed, then it must come from being employable.” At a time whenmergers, delayering and downsizing are endemic, the need to maintain youremployability has never been more important. In the short term, you may not wish to study, but in the longer term youmight wish to move out of training and development. Undoubtedly, CIPD studywould be a passport to such a career move since it shows you have encompassedthe full scope of the function and would indicate to a future boss that you areserious about a career in HR. You say your appraisals have been positive; raise the question of CIPDqualification with your manager and establish why it is required regardless ofyour area of work? You say that you like life as it is – does this mean you are not ambitious?While the professional reasons for CIPD have been addressed above, you need tothink about you and where you want your career to go.
