2 top British dividend income stocks I’d buy today


first_img Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now 2 top British dividend income stocks I’d buy today Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned. 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.

Football player, 16, charged with murdering pregnant girl


first_imgSt. Joseph County Prosecutors Office(MISHAWAKA, Ind.) — A 16-year-old has been charged with killing a pregnant classmate and her unborn child, of whom he was the father, authorities say.Aaron Romeo Trejo allegedly stabbed Breana Rouhselang, 17, to death Saturday night and discarded her body in a dumpster near her home in Mishawaka, Indiana, according to a charging document filed in St. Joseph County Superior Court on Monday. Trejo will be charged as an adult under state law.Rouhselang was reported missing by her parents Sunday morning around 4:30 a.m., according to the court document. Her mother told police that she was six months pregnant and had gone behind their home to talk to the father of her child around 11 p.m. on Saturday, police said.When Rouhselang’s mother woke up around 1 a.m. Sunday, she became concerned and went to Trejo’s home several blocks away to ask where her daughter was, but Trejo told her that Breana did not show up to speak to him in the alley behind her home, the affidavit stated. Trejo also allegedly told the worried mother that “he had lost his cell phone so she could not call him back later.”Rouhselang’s mother then called police after continuing to search for the teen and contacting her friends, police said.Investigators went to talk to Trejo again, “since he may have been the last one to see or talk to Breana,” but he reiterated that she was not there when he went to talk to her, according to the court document.Police then instructed Trejo to send a message to Rouhselang’s phone, to which he replied that he did not have a service plan and only had WiFi, police said. Trejo did have a service plan, the affidavit states.When investigators surveyed the alley behind Rouhselang’s home, they found glasses and a hat with what appeared to be blood on it, police said. They then located more blood throughout the area and located Rouhselang’s body in a dumpster behind a nearby business — a black plastic bag covering her head and upper torso, according to the charging document.Police then transported Trejo and his parents to the station for questioning and asked him “what he knew about last night and Breana’s whereabouts,” the affidavit states.Trejo stated that “he had reached out to Breana for the first time in months to see how she was doing with the pregnancy” and that she had agreed to meet him, but was not there when he walked to her home, police said. Trejo indicated that he waited around for a few minutes and then went home after Breana did not reply to a message he sent her, police said.During the interrogation, Trejo stated that “neither he nor Breana wanted to have the baby” and that he had no idea where she was, according to the court document.The detective then informed Trejo that the physical evidence would not support his story and asked if he and Rouhselang had fought over the pregnancy.“Aaron Trejo quietly said, ‘Yes,’” before explaining that “Breana waited too long” to tell him about the pregnancy for her to be able to get an abortion, the affidavit states.Trejo then allegedly admitted to stabbing Rouhselang in the heart with a knife he brought from home, police said. He allegedly said he chose to use the knife “because he thought it would kill Breana quickly,” according to the charging document.“I took action….I took her life,” Trejo allegedly told police, the affidavit states.Trejo told police that he then put Rouhselang’s body in the dumpster and threw her phone and the knife as far into a nearby river as he could, according to the court document.Trejo also admitted he brought the black plastic bag he used to cover Rouhselang’s head from home, knowing he would use it “for that purpose,” police said.He had been planning on killing Rouhselang and the baby for about a week, police said.An autopsy determined that Rouhselang died from multiple stab wounds and that her scarf had been “tied so tightly that strangulation was occurring before Breana died,” the charging document states. The manner of her death was ruled a homicide, police said.Trejo is charged with one count of murder and one count of feticide, or the destruction or abortion of a fetus, according to the court document.In a statement, the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office said that “probable cause” was found to arrest Trejo.Trejo is being held without bond and will be arraigned on Tuesday. He has not yet entered a plea, and it is unclear if he has retained an attorney.He will be charged as an adult, according to an Indiana statute that states juvenile courts have no jurisdiction over murder cases involving defendants 16 or older.Trejo is a football player for Mishawaka High School, and Rouhselang was the team’s manager, ABC South Bend/Elkhart affiliate WBND-TV reported.ABC News could not immediately reach a representative for the School City of Mishawaka for comment.

Friedman Park Event Center Ground Breaking


first_imgWarrick County broke ground on the 16,000 square foot Friedman Park Event Center. This modern lodge, multi-use facility is set within the 180 acres of Friedman Park in Warrick County.  The Event Center’s design will allow it to host a wide range of events, conferences and corporate functions as well as community and business events. The Event Center will be a significant asset to pair with the adjacent Victoria National Golf Club, one of the nation’s top courses for future tournaments, events and corporate retreats.The Friedman Park, infrastructure, and event center make up $11.6 million transformative project that is part of the Regional Cities Initiative driven by the State of Indiana. The Regional Cities Initiative designated three regions through a competitive process to receive $42 million for talent attraction projects to be leveraged by additional public and private investment. Once called the Victoria National Conference Center in the plan for Indiana’s Great Southwest, the project will receive $2,000,000 from Regional Cities funding and the remaining from public county funding and local private investment.“Regional planning and transformational quality of place projects are vital to continuing to propel Indiana’s economy forward,” said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “The Friedman Park Event Center is one piece of a strategic plan to enhance culture, vitality and livability across Southwest Indiana, supporting efforts to retain and attract top talent in Warrick County and throughout the region.”“Warrick County has extraordinary vision in providing residents with useful and desired amenities,” said Beth Mcfadin Higgins, president of the Southwest Indiana Regional Development Authority. “The Friedman Park Event Center is a welcomed addition to the health and recreation focus of the community and is certainly a talent attracting location for residents and visitors of Indiana’s Great Southwest.”“The Friedman Park Event Center will allow us to create new and exciting opportunities for the region by leveraging two of our area’s finest resources, Friedman Park and Victoria National Golf Course. Resident and visitors alike will benefit from the transformative project,” said Dan Saylor, Warrick County Commissioner.The project completion date is fall of 2020.Friedman Park Event Center breaks groundFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Sourdoughs


first_imgCreating a sourdough ‘starter’ – which involves developing your own yeast culture rather than adding yeast to the mix – entails mixing flour, water, and other ingredients that have been colonised by wild airborne bacteria.A sourdough starter contains a strain of yeast that is tolerant of the lactic and acetic acids produced by the lactobacilli, giving the bread its unique tang.For bakers considering developing their own starter, the best tip for a successful sourdough is to reduce the risk of microbial contamination from other sources as much as possible.The conditions in a mother dough need to be controlled to ensure the continued reproduction of yeast cells.If the dough becomes contaminated with other micro-organisms – yeasts, moulds and bacteria – and the storage conditions favour those micro-organisms rather than the yeast (all micro-organisms have their own favoured food and growth conditions controlled by temperature and pH), then development of ‘off flavours’ and loss of performance can become a real problem.Here are Dan Lepard’s top tips for better sourdoughsStart with an active, bubbling, acidic leaven mixed with equal quantities of flour and water, without the addition of commercial yeast.Starter Every 24 hours you should hold back one-fifth and replace what was used in baking with fresh flour and water stirred in well.Regular replenishment with flour and water is essential as it is a living thing that will respond to regular rather than intermittent feeding.The acidity will ensure that the mixture stays hostile to bad bacteria and other organisms, and will keep it fresh tasting and healthy.Recipe & methodAdd 30-40% active leaven to flour weight and water to take the dough moisture percentage to 65-70% (allow for the flour and water in the sourdough). Mix and then wait.Extend the bulk fermentation until you can see clear signs of fermentation in the dough and only then divide and shape.Time You might find that you want to chill the dough between shifts to slow down the fermentation, as it is no good if the dough ripens when there is nobody in the bakery to scale and shape it.Equally, if it is looking a bit sluggish then you might want to increase the amount of leaven in the dough. Some bakers take the percentage up to 60-70% to create a big sour tang to the crumb.ProvingWith sourdough or other naturally leavened breads everything takes longer. So bakers often use a soft dough to encourage the fermentation, but this tends to flow if left on a tray.So some sort of containment, like flour-dusted baskets or cloths, that trap the dough and force it upwards rather than outwards, is needed. It will need a deft hand to quickly upturn and roll the proved fragile dough onto a peel without degassing it, then to slash it quickly without it deflating. But it is just knack, not a tricky skill.Strong floursThe longer the fermentation, the better strong flour will perform. The lightest loaves will come from strong white flour, but sometimes the flavour is a bit thin.So try using 70% strong white flour, 20% wholemeal flour and 10% dark rye flour for a big flavour and a relatively light loaf.last_img read more
