A 5% FTSE 100 dividend stock I’d buy today, and a falling knife I’d avoid

first_img Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Landsec. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Landsec and Micro Focus. 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. Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 8th February, 2020 | More on: LAND MCRO Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The FTSE 100 currently offers an average dividend yield of 4.3%. However, some stocks in the index offer much higher levels of income for investors. But not all of these dividends are as secure as they seem…With that in mind, here’s one 5%-yielding FTSE 100 stock that seems like an excellent income investment, and one FTSE 250 income play that appears unlikely to offer investors a positive return.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…LandsecLandsec (LSE: LAND) is the largest publically-traded real estate investment trust (REIT) in the UK, owning and managing around £13bn of property, mainly in London. Concerns about the state of the commercial property market have hit the company’s stock price recently. Nevertheless, recent trading updates from the group show it’s coping well with these pressures. The REIT’s half-year results showed a 1.4% increase in overall rental income, and adjusted earnings per share remained stable. That’s quite impressive considering the operational problems some of Landsec’s smaller peers are facing. The company’s sector-beating returns suggest the stock could be worth adding to your portfolio as an income investment. It currently yields 5% and is trading at a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of 0.7, which suggests the shares offer a margin of safety at current levels. Micro FocusWhile Landsec is outperforming its sector, Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO) is struggling. For the past few years, the company has been trying to get to grips with its largest-ever acquisition and it’s starting to look as if the business has taken on more than it can chew. Micro Focus has issued a series of revenue warnings over the past few years. Its latest, released last week, warned investors to expect a 6-8% decline in revenues on a constant currency basis in its current fiscal year.Shares in this tech stock have plunged over the past 12 months as it’s consistently failed to meet its own targets. From a high of more than 2,100p in June 2019, it’s now changing hands for less than 800p. Considering the company’s dismal outlook, it appears as if there could be further declines on the cards. With this being the case, while shares in Micro Focus might look attractive after recent declines, it could be best for investors to avoid the business.It’s trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of under five, which suggests a margin of safety. However, with revenues falling, it’s difficult to rely on this number. The same is true of the firm’s dividend yield. At present, the stock offers a highly attractive dividend yield of 10%. However, with revenues falling, Micro Focus could fail to hit this cash return target. As such, it might be best to avoid this falling knife for the time being. There are plenty of other income investments out there (such as Landsec), which appear to offer much more attractive risk/reward prospects. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

The Anglican Communion is standing together with religious leaders and faith-based actors around the world to advocate to governments and civil society, for urgent responses that protect women’s rights and achieve gender equality.The crisis does not operate in a vacuum and, as a result, the pandemic is increasing pre-existing gender inequalities. Around the world, gender roles have a marked impact on exposure, transmission, and outcome patterns of COVID-19. Women and girls are experiencing intersecting injustices in political, social and economic spheres.Sexual and Gender Based ViolenceIn the statement published today, Faith in Beijing, who are a collective of religious actors and faith-based networks, call for COVID-19 responses to include strategies to address and prevent Sexual and Gender Based Violence. Under lockdown policies, many women are forced to stay at homes where they are not safe or secure. They are forced to live with abusive partners or parents, while services to survivors of gender-based violence are harder to access. In some communities around the world, violence against women during the pandemic has been perpetrated by the security agencies enforcing the lockdown, using undue force.Faith on the FrontlineFaith communities have a strong base from which to promote social distancing (to reduce transmission of the virus causing COVID-19), while also practicing solidarity. Many religious actors hold significant power and trust, sometimes more than the government. Thus, religious institutions can play a vital role in distributing accurate key public health information to their communities. Religious leaders can play a positive role in promoting messages of gender justice, challenging stigma and harmful gender norms.Equality and Justice for AllAs business as usual is paused, we have an opportunity to reflect upon the brokenness in our world and our economic system. In these spaces, we can begin to imagine a world rooted in equality and justice for all. The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed how globally interconnected we are and how gender injustice reveals itself at an individual and a collective level.An international delegation representing the Anglican Communion as well as Mandy Marshall, the new Director for Gender Justice at the Anglican Communion Office, was due to participate in the UN Commission on the Status of Women 64 along with other Faith in Beijing members. While the international gathering of UN Member States and civil society was postponed last month, our work for gender justice remains important, to ensure a just and sustainable future for all.You can read the statement on Gender, Faith and COVID-19 on the Gender Justice page of the Anglican Communion website.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) is to fund a review of the workforce involved in UK universities, with the aim of helping it to expand.The review follows the publication by HEFCE in 2012 of Philanthropy to UK Universities (the Pearce Report), which set the target of £2 billion a year in charitable gifts to UK universities by 2022. For this to be achieved, the workforce of higher education fundraisers would need to double or even triple.For this reason HEFCE has appointed fundraising consultancy More Partnership and fundraising recruitment consulants Richmond Associates to research the university fundraising workforce.

Day of Mourning honored at Plymouth

first_imgIndigenous people and supporters gathered despite sub-zero wind chills for the 49th National Day of Mourning at Plymouth, Mass. The undaunted crowd included Indigenous peoples whom the pilgrims menaced and murdered — Nipmuc; Mashpee, Aquinnah and other bands of the Wampanoag; Narragansett; Massachusett; Pequot and other Indigenous nations from the immediate region.Cole’s Hill showed vibrant solidarity with flags and signs from many different Indigenous nations as well as supporters from many communities — Puerto Rican/Taino, Haitian, Palestinian, Filipino, Black Lives Matter and disabled supporters. Moonanum James, Wampanoag, co-leader of United American Indians of New England, opened the rally: “The Pilgrims came here as part of a commercial venture. They didn’t need religious freedom — they already had that back in the Netherlands. The Mayflower Compact was merely a group of white men who wanted to ensure they would get a return on their investment. When they arrived … one of the first things the Pilgrims did was to rob Wampanoag graves at Corn Hill and steal as much of their winter provisions of corn and beans as they were able to carry. “The first official thanksgiving did not take place in 1621 when the Pilgrims had a harvest-time meal provided largely by the Wampanoag. Instead it was officially proclaimed by Gov. Winthrop of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1637 to celebrate the massacre of over 700 Pequot men, women and children on the banks of the Mystic River in Connecticut.“Gov. Winthrop wrote: ‘Those that escaped the fire were slain with the sword; some hewed to pieces, others run through with their rapiers … they thus destroyed about 400 at this time. It was a fearful sight to see them thus frying in the fire … horrible was the stink and scent thereof, but the victory seemed a sweet sacrifice, and they gave the prayers thereof to God, who had wrought so wonderfully for them.’ James continued, “And yet the history books call us the savages.”James also discussed recent attacks on the Mashpee Wampanoag: “The Department of the Interior ruled that the Mashpee Wampanoag should not be able to take their own ancestral territory into trust. … [T]he Mashpee are threatened with having their very own land ripped away from them for a SECOND time. [It] represents an attack on the self-determination and sovereignty of all Native Nations throughout the country. … Stand With Mashpee and support pending legislation that would give Mashpee the right to petition for land to be taken into trust.” Ongoing genocidal attacksUAINE co-leader Mahtowin Munro, Lakota, spoke of ongoing genocidal attacks, including the longtime kidnapping of Native children and placement in residential schools, foster care and adoption outside of their communities and the current attacks on the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act. “ICWA was declared unconstitutional by a federal court in Texas. … Before that law was passed, about a third of Indigenous children were being removed from their families and adopted into white families. “But now there are many forces, ranging from for-profit adoption placement agencies to religious fundamentalists to right-wing think tanks such as the Goldwater Institute, that want to return us to those destructive times. … [T]he media says that the separation of families by [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is a new phenomenon … this is not something that just started with Trump or Obama. It has been happening for centuries to Black and Indigenous families.”Munro also raised the struggle around Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirits (MMIWG2S): “Indigenous women and Two Spirits have been under attack since 1492. … One of the many reasons that Indigenous Nations all over are fighting against pipelines and fracking and mining is that man camps are set up for the workers. The men have huge sums of money and lots of drugs such as meth and heroin to entice Indigenous women, who often end up being addicted and trafficked. Some of these sisters disappear, some get killed.”Red dresses were hung from the stage to symbolize MMIWG2S. As Munro explained, “Murder is the third leading cause of death for U.S. Indigenous women. In Canada, several thousand Indigenous women are considered to be missing or murdered. In cities like Winnipeg, Indigenous youth — many of them in foster care — women and Two Spirits disappear all the time. In border towns with Mexico, women disappear all the time.”Attack on the environmentMunro and others speakers addressed the Indigenous struggles against fossil fuel pipelines and other corporate and governmental assaults on clean water, air and lands. Marjorie Flowers, Rigolet Inuk, a Labrador land protector who traveled from Labrador in the far north, raised the struggle against the Canadian plan to build the Muskrat Falls mega-hydrodam that will destroy lands and homes in Labrador and Newfoundland. Energy from this dam would run through the Maritimes, through precious forests in Maine, into the U.S. and Plymouth at the expense of Indigenous lives, culture and food.Wampanoag elder Bert Waters, 88, read a statement from Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier and led the march through Plymouth. When the march arrived in front of the pebble called “plymouth rock,” the march paused to hear Juan Gonzalez, with a message from the Council of Maya Elders. June Sapiel and Dawn Neptune Adams (Penobscot) spoke about the battles against fossil fuel pipelines.This writer (Tromblay, Huron/Metis non-status, undocumented Tsalagi heritage) spoke connecting the movement against violence toward women — “most sharply seen in the numbers of murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls and Two Spirits, and the lack of records thereof — which must acknowledge that this violence is part and parcel of the capitalist idea of ‘man over nature.’ … All the carbon in the atmosphere, the assault of fossil fuel pipelines on clear water and air, and the assault on the remaining undeveloped lands around the globe are a war on Mother Earth. Indigenous people are leading the fight to protect Mother Earth.”As James said to the crowd on Cole’s Hill, “We will continue to gather on this hill until the U.S. military and corporations stop polluting the earth. Until we dismantle the brutal apparatus of mass incarceration. We will not stop until the oppression of our Two-Spirit siblings is a thing of the past.  When the homeless have homes. “When people from Mexico, Central and South America are no longer demonized and targeted by politicians in search of a scapegoat. When the Palestinians reclaim the homeland and the autonomy Israel has denied them for the past 70 years. When no person goes hungry or is left to die because they have little or no access to quality health care.  When union busting is a thing of the past. Until then, the struggle will continue.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
