2 top British dividend income stocks I’d buy today

The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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. After last year’s dividend cuts and suspensions, I was surprised to see just how many top British dividend income stocks are making generous shareholder payouts today. Last week, I suggested nine worth pursuing. Here are two more of my FTSE 100 income favourites.Insurer and asset manager Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN) is possibly my number one British dividend income stock. To its credit, L&G continued to reward loyal shareholders throughout the pandemic, even when rival Aviva bowed to pressure and cut its dividend. 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…Today, L&G offers a thumping forward yield of 6.5%. With the average savings account paying 0.06%, that is a mighty return. Naturally, as with all dividends, there are no guarantees. However, the payout is covered 1.7 times by forecast earnings, which boosts my confidence.I’d buy these two FTSE 100 stocksLegal & General didn’t survive the pandemic completely unscathed. In March, it reported a 3% drop in annual operating profits to £2.21bn, while it has set aside an extra £110m to cover claims caused by mutant Covid strains. Yet its fund management arm has done well, with assets under management increasing 6.9% to £1.3bn. Better still, the underlying business remains solid, with capital levels climbing to a meaty 192%. This could free up funds to invest in faster growth opportunities.As well as being a top British dividend income stock, the Legal & General share price has delivered growth as well. It is up 36% over the last year, although five-year growth is actually lower at 20%. For me, L&G is mostly about income, and on that front, it delivers.I am sticking with the insurance industry for my next pick, Phoenix Group Holdings (LSE: PHNX). This also merits the title of top British dividend income stock for maintaining payouts through last year’s woes. Today it yields 6.6%, although cover is slightly thinner at 1.3 times earnings.I’d buy this top British dividend income stock, tooPhoenix is a different creature to L&G. Its strategy is to buy up old life insurance and pension funds that are closed to new business, and run them on behalf of members. The more it buys, the greater the economies of scale. It now services 14m policyholders.The Phoenix share price is never going to shoot the lights out. The income is the attraction here, as the share price has climbed just 15% measured over both one and five years. Management knows that, and kept investors onside by taking advantage of record £1.7bn cash flows to hike its annual payout by 3%.The challenge is that Phoenix must keep buying up legacy life pension and life funds in order to keep growing and funding those dividends. So I am pleased to see that it also has an ‘open’ business offering pension and investment products to new customers, under the Standard Life brand. In 2016, it acquired SunLife from Axa. This diversification should help it remain a top British dividend income stock over the longer term. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

Dead & Company Delivers Seamless Second Set, All Tour Debuts In Cincinnati [Videos]


first_imgOn Monday night, Dead & Company continued their 2018 summer tour with a stop at Cincinnati, OH’s Riverbend Music Center. Coming off a weather cancelation in the middle of their second set on night two in Camden, the band took the stage at Riverbend with a well-worn Grateful Dead mindset: “Just keep truckin’.”The band took their time before sliding into “Truckin’” in earnest to start the show. Bob Weir struggled early on the vocals, coughing and chuckling as he tried to soothe his dry throat. Eventually, a red cup filled with water appeared on the amp behind Weir, and with his whistle wetted, his trademark howl was back, albeit with a little more growl in it than usual.Dead & Company – “Truckin’” [Pro-Shot][Video: Dead & Company]Weir powered through, taking lead vocals on an upbeat rendition of Johnny Cash‘s “Big River”. John Mayer stepped to the mic next to lead the band through “They Love Each Other”, one of the tunes he’s most naturally made his own in the Dead & Co arena. Another such song followed in “Friend of the Devil”, as Mayer and Weir (on acoustic guitar) shared vocals and Jeff Chimenti took a beautiful piano solo on the American Beauty classic.Next, Oteil Burbridge took to the mic for a tender, bluesy reading of “If I Had The World To Give”. “Sugaree” came next, and the band grooved through multiple swinging blues jam portions, with Mayer and Chimenti playing off each other to great effect. Burbridge and the Rhythm Devils, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, anchored the band firmly in the pocket before pushing Chimenti and Mayer toward a white-light peak. Finally, the band took one more stab at first set blues with “New Speedway Boogie” to bring their first set to a close.Dead & Company came out of the gates hot for set two, opening with a “Deal” that felt somewhat faster than the band’s usually tepid pace on the Jerry Garcia classic. The band made the most of the approach, pushing the song into some interesting, sparse space before building it up to a satisfying climax.Dead & Company – “Deal” [Pro-Shot][Video: Dead & Company]Without skipping a beat, the band settled into a slow and steady “He’s Gone”, Weir and Mayer smile, smile, smiling as they shared lead vocals. The song’s outro jam, in particular, saw the band members play off each other impeccably, producing some of the most engaging improv of the night. The meat of the second set followed with a red-hot run through “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider” pairing, with the band’s emotional accents hitting all their customary marks throughout the classic pairing.Pulsing percussion plumed out of “Rider”, signaling the start of Mickey and Billy’s “Drums/Space” fun time. The band returned to the stage to craft a dissonant, jazzy atmosphere deep into “Space”, emerging on the other side in Bob Dylan classic “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall”. Bobby’s early vocal struggles were a distant memory as he emoted an elegant reading of the tune.Dead & Company kicked the energy back up a few notches with the “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad” that followed, with Weir, Burbridge, and Mayer all taking a turn singing lead. Finally, after a straight-through set with nary a measure’s break, the band flowed into “U.S. Blues” to bring it to a close. Another Dylan favorite, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”, served as the encore to cap the evening.Of note, in addition to playing a seamless second set, every song the band played throughout the night (aside from the ever-present “Drums/Space”) was a tour debut—as has been the case in each of the tour’s 4 (3.75?) shows. While the repeats will inevitably begin sooner rather than later, it’s ensuring to see them making a concerted effort to utilize the Dead’s expansive catalog, much of which remains unexplored by this latter-day incarnation of the band. After a hiccup in Camden, Dead & Co’s Cincinnati performance saw them get their footing once again, delivering a fun early-tour show that shows promise for what’s to come as their summer run trucks on.You can listen to full audio of the show via nugs.net. Next up for the band is a show at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center in Noblesville, IN tomorrow, June 6th.

Cricket News ICC Women’s World T20: India crash out in semi-final against England, Australia trounce West Indies


first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Chasing 113 for a place in the final, England did not get off to an ideal start as they lost Tammy Beaumont in the second over and Danielle Wyatt in the fifth to Indian spinners, who dominated the powerplay.ALSO READ | MC Mary Kom assures India of silver in World Boxing ChampionshipHowever, Amy Ellen Jones and Natalie Sciver joined forces to first rebuild the innings and then bat India out of the game. Amy Jones (53 no, 47 balls) and Natalie Sciver (52 off 40 balls) added 92 runs for the unbroken third-wicket stand to finish the match in only 17.1 overs.Poor game sense of not reading the pitch also played its part as most of the Indian batswomen charged at the deliveries rather than playing deep inside the crease.India’s biggest hope skipper Harmanpreet Kaur (16 off 20 balls) hit a six but spinners Kirstie Gordon (2/20), Heather Knight (3/9) and Sophie Ecclestone (2/22) ran through middle and lower order with seven players failing to reach double figures. From 89/2, India lost eight wickets for just 23 runs as they were bowled out for a below-par score. ALSO READ | Kubica returns to F1 after horror crash which almost severed his arm India dropped the senior most player Mithali Raj from the squad, a move that will certainly be questioned.

However, in the game against Ireland, she suffered an injury and was rested for the game against Australia which India won by a convincing margin of 48 runs. England will no battle three-time champions Australia, who trounced the hosts and defending champions West Indies in the first semi-final. Dominant Southern StarsAfter a sluggish group stage in which they lost to India, Australia brought their A-game to the semi-final. Alyssa Healy, who was injured in the game against India and did not bowl, was the star in the batting. Healy and Meg Lanning shared a 51-run stand for the second wicket but Healy was unlucky to miss out on a fifty, with Afy Fletcher dismissing her for 46. Lanning’s stands with Ashleigh Gardner helped the team cross 100 and some lusty blows from Rachael Haynes helped Australia end on a competitive 142/5In response, West Indies had no response to the discipline of the Australian bowling. Barring Stephanie Taylor, no other West Indies batter reached double figures. Ellyse Perry, with 2/2 in two overs, once again proved to be the key player by dismissing the dangerous Deandra Dottin cheaply. Delissa Kimmince and Ashleigh Gardner also chipped in with two wickets while they got good support from Megan Schutt, Sophie Molineux and Georgia Wareham.England will be aiming to break their nine-year wait for the World T20 title while Australia will be attempting a record fourth title.  New Delhi: India’s dreams of winning ICC Women’s World T20 were shattered after batting collapse saw them crash to an eight-wicket defeat against England in the semi-finals. England will now meet Australia in the summit clash after the Southern Stars beat defending champions West Indies by 72 runs.last_img read more

Ben Williams has career-worst day at the X in No. 6 Syracuse’s 12-11 overtime victory over No. 11 Duke


first_img Published on March 25, 2017 at 6:12 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Up one goal in the fourth quarter, Syracuse took out one of the best faceoff specialists in the country.Ben Williams, a Preseason All-ACC honoree and two-time Tewaarton Award Nominee, had won only 4-of-17 faceoffs, prompting SU’s coaching staff to substitute in freshman Dan Varello. Duke FOGO Kyle Rowe, who dominated Williams last March by winning nearly 60 percent of faceoffs in an overtime win, gave the Blue Devils’ ninth-ranked offense time to work in its 12-11 loss Saturday afternoon inside the Carrier Dome. Duke commanded possession until Williams left the game, allowing Justin Guterding and Jack Bruckner to combine for nine points.Varello vacuumed the X in the fourth quarter and overtime, going 6-of-8 on the faceoff — including the last one that set up freshman Jamie Trimboli’s game-winner 40 seconds into the sudden death period. If not for Varello, SU may not have won its fourth consecutive game in its sixth straight one-goal bout. Yet in the 2016 ACC tournament championship rematch, No. 6 Syracuse’s (6-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) sure-handed FOGO posted a career-worst 4-of-18 mark against a No. 11 Duke (7-3, 0-1) team that had won five straight.“We didn’t give Ben a lot of help on the faceoffs, so I thought our wings did a much better job in the second half,” SU head coach John Desko said. “It was a nice spark Danny (Varello) gave us to help us get some of those possessions that we didn’t have in the first half.”Williams was not made available for post game interviews.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDuke’s top threat, Guterding, scored his first goal of the game shortly after a won faceoff in the second quarter. Less than a minute later, after Rowe’s second straight faceoff win over Williams, Guterding ran behind the cage and fed Bruckner to give Duke its first lead of the game.The ensuing faceoff resulted in a Williams violation, giving the Blue Devils another long possession. Brad Smith, after nearly three minutes of Duke possession, scored the Blue Devils’ third unanswered goal by five-holing SU goalie Evan Molloy. It gave Duke a 6-4 lead and prompted Desko to call timeout.By halftime, Williams had won just 2-of-13 faceoffs against Rowe.“Rowe came in and did something that’s really hard to do,” Duke head coach John Danowski said. “While he didn’t win the last faceoff in overtime and didn’t pick up the ground ball, that’s not why we lost. If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have been competitive today.”To start the third quarter, Williams won the faceoff and senior midfielder Sergio Salcido wound up from 15 yards out to bounce in his eighth goal of the season, evening the score at six. But that was one of few bright spots in his day. After Williams lost the first faceoff of the fourth, resulting in a Bruckner score eight seconds later, Varello took over at the X. On SU’s next play, Varello won the faceoff and sophomore attack Nate Solomon scored off of a Nick Mariano feed.Before winning the last faceoff in overtime last week at Johns Hopkins, Williams lost 8-of-10. As a sophomore, he posted a 67.4 success rate at the X, the nation’s second-highest mark. Last year, his 62.2-percent mark finished 10th. This season, his percentage is 53.5 — on pace for a career-worst at Syracuse.Saturday, Rowe kept Duke in the game by winning faceoffs and pushing transition. He also helped erase Duke’s 15 turnovers, five of which came in Duke’s last six possessions in its scoreless third quarter. Rowe assisted on a fourth-quarter transition score to Bruckner, pulling Duke within one.“Rowe was tremendous today,” Desko said. “He really does a great job getting the ball out to himself. That’s what makes him dangerous … he was getting on the ball really quick.“Fortunately we had the ball at the end.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
