Royston Wild | Friday, 3rd January, 2020 | More on: BA HGM ISA investors! 2 cheap dividend stocks that could keep rising Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img It’s no surprise to see investors and traders bale out of share markets and plough into less-risky assets following news overnight of fresh US military action in Iraq. The American airstrikes that have killed top Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in Baghdad is seen as a major escalation in the power struggle in the Middle East, an act for which Tehran has vowed to enact “severe revenge”.Traditional safe havens like precious metals and currencies like the Swiss franc and Japanese yen are thriving in Friday trade, while some classic defensive stocks such as gold producers are defying the broader gloom washing over equity markets to rise in end-of-week trade.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…Gold gains!Take Highland Gold Mining (LSE: HGM), for instance. This is a share which has risen 4% on Friday to levels not seen since November, propelled by the rise in bullion prices. Gold was last trading at $1,550 per ounce, up 20 bucks on the day and at levels not seen since the spring of 2013.I recently explained why there’s a galaxy of reasons why gold prices could surge in 2020, and this fresh face-off between the US and Iran provides another reason to expect the precious metal to surge in the months ahead.And in my opinion, buying shares in AIM-listed Highland Gold is a great way to play this theme. With production increasing and gold values expected to remain robust, City analysts expect earnings to rise 12% in 2020. This leaves it trading on a rock-bottom P/E ratio of 9.1 times at current prices, leaving plenty of scope for the share price to keep rising. And what’s more, a mid-cap-beating 3.5% dividend yield adds an extra sweetener.Footsie firm on the riseGains over at BAE Systems (LSE: BA) have been more modest this morning, though a 0.2% share price rise means that the defence giant has outperformed most other FTSE 100 shares. It stands to reason that the arms-makers have risen following new military action from the US, and to expect them to keep climbing as the situation in the Middle East potentially deteriorates.Military conflict is a tragedy best avoided, but we cannot ignore the fact that as a major supplier to the US military, BAE Systems would be a key beneficiary of any escalation in hostilities with Iran by air, sea, ground and even in cyberspace. And as an interesting side note, the Footsie firm’s close relationship with Saudi Arabia, Iran’s main opponent in the region, could also receive a boost should the political and military situation worsen.Strength in UK and US military budgets means that City brokers expect profits at BAE Systems to edge higher again in 2020, this time by 5%. And this leads to predictions of more annual dividend growth, meaning a chubby 4.2% yield. Throw a bargain P/E multiple of 12 times into the bargain too and I reckon the weapons maker is a top buy at this moment in time. Image source: Getty Images.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Buy-to-let property has historically provided an attractive passive income which has grown at a generous pace. However, a variety of factors mean its appeal could now be lower than it has been in the past.As such, buying a range of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares could be a better means of obtaining a growing passive income. They appear to offer greater tax efficiency, stronger growth potential, and more diversity than undertaking buy-to-let investments.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…A diverse portfolioBuilding a diverse portfolio of FTSE 350 shares isn’t an especially challenging process. The falling cost of buying shares and the global nature of the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, which together generate the majority of their income from outside of the UK, mean most investors can put together a portfolio containing a range of stocks which operate in different sectors and geographies.This could improve their risk/reward ratio compared to buy-to-let investments where, in many cases, a landlord owns a small number of properties in a limited geographic area.With Brexit likely to dominate news headlines in 2020, and risks such as US political uncertainty and a slowdown in China’s growth rate set to continue, diversifying geographically could become increasingly important for income investors. It may provide a more reliable income stream in 2020 and in the coming years.Growth potentialAs well as offering less risk, FTSE 350 shares could deliver rising dividends in the long run. In some cases, mid- and large-cap shares may be able to access higher rates of economic growth across the emerging world. This may enable them to pay rising dividends.Similarly, UK-focused companies may offer relatively high yields at the present time due to investor apathy towards the UK during the Brexit process. They may be able to deliver inflation-beating dividend growth to complement their high yields.Meanwhile, high house prices mean that even if there’s rental growth potential for landlords, a low yield could lead to them receiving a disappointing level of income. This situation is compounded by rising taxes for buy-to-let investors, which could make purchasing FTSE 350 shares through tax-efficient accounts, such as a Stocks and Shares ISA, more attractive on a net basis than holding property.Starting todayNow could be the right time to build a portfolio of FTSE 350 shares to generate a growing passive income. By diversifying across a range of geographies and sectors, you may be able to obtain an attractive and resilient after-tax income return – especially when compared to the prospects on offer through buy-to-let investing.Although the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have experienced a volatile start to 2020, their valuations, growth potential, and track records suggest now could be the right time for income investors to buy a range of companies and hold them for the long term.

Photo: St. Peter’s Episcopal Church via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians in Ellicott City, Maryland, were cleaning up their homes and businesses on May 29, while helping their neighbors do the same and offering them shelter after torrential rain two days before sent a destructive flash flood through the town’s downtown.“The sun rose on a terrible scene in Old Ellicott City and our surrounding community,” the Rev. Anjel Scarborough, rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, wrote to the parish on Trinity Sunday, the morning after the storm.“As we walked through the West End, we saw nothing but mud and water being pumped out of basements. Rows of homes with their basements completely gutted and foundations washed away — no longer habitable by any means.“St. Peter’s responded by showing up for our neighbors. Thanks to generous donations from the wider community, hot food, bottled water, hot coffee, sandwiches, phone chargers, and even a grill for cooking hamburgers and hot dogs arrived! Sara Beth [Dukes, a church neighbor] arrived to offer trauma release acupuncture for those who wanted it. We listened, we offered shoulders to cry on, and we distributed tools and equipment to help our neighbors.”In fact, at about 9:15 p.m. on May 27, just hours after the flood, St. Peter’s let it be known via Facebook that its doors were open to anyone needing shelter. The church, which sits above the downtown, has since been open from morning until evening with hot food, toiletries (including diapers and feminine hygiene products), bottled water, work gloves, heavy-duty contractor bags, cleaning supplies, shovels and wheelbarrows, according to its Facebook page. Some of the supplies were donated by a local hardware store.St. Peter’s is using its Facebook page to post recovery information. For instance, it shared details about a company offering to help business owners recover data from sodden computer hard drives.“Once again, our St. Peter’s family is called upon to show the boundless, unquenchable love of Christ to our community in a time of need,” Scarborough wrote.The other Episcopal church in town, St. John’s, took on a “quite a bit of water,” according to its Facebook page, but a group of parishioners helped prevent extensive damage. Residents of the west end of Ellicott City’s Main Street need industrial fans, water pumps, shovels and wheelbarrows, a Facebook post said. People who can offer those supplies are being directed to St. Peter’s.Diocese of Maryland Bishop Eugene Sutton went to Ellicott City on Memorial Day to offer his encouragement and to assess the needs.Locations around Ellicott City and Catonsville received between 5.36 inches and 10.38 inches of rain on Sunday, said Kyle Pallozzi, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Baltimore-Washington forecast office. The heavy rain sent the Hudson and Tiber tributaries over their banks, with the water coursing down Main Street. Muddy water tore through downtown for two hours in the late afternoon. It pushed cars into store windows, forced restaurant customers to seek safety in the second stories of some buildings and sent others fleeing for higher ground.Eddison HermondOne person, Eddison Hermond, 39, apparently died trying to rescue a person caught in the flood. The off-duty National Guardsman came out of a restaurant to help pet food store owner Kate Bowman who had escaped with her cat from the window of her shop and was in water above her waist. She told police that Hermond was swept away by the water. His body was found May 29 in Patapsco River downstream from Ellicott City.The Diocese of Maryland shared on its Facebook page this post from a local businessperson showing downtown Ellicott City during the flooding.The flood came just weeks after local officials reported that the former mill town was on its way to being fully recovered from similar destruction in July 2016. About two weeks ago, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan announced that the state and Howard County had been awarded more than $1 million by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to pay for projects aimed at reducing the flood risk in the areas surrounding Main Street.– The Rev.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Planting Forecast: Precipitation, Evaporation Hurdles to Overcome SHARE SHARE By Ashley Davenport – May 1, 2020 Facebook Twitter We are slightly little optimistic in the planting forecast this time around, as we have seen the upcoming moisture chances lessen some. However, there are still some hurdles to over come in the next 10 days to two weeks, especially for southern Indiana. The key will be how fast we are able to move the moisture we received late this last week out of the soil profile. The map below shows 10 day rain potential across the state. Small-ish amounts in the north, heavier rains in the south.Partly sunny skies and warm air in the forecast for Saturday over the entire state. Temps will be well above normal, and we should see excellent evaporation. Breezy conditions will help with drying all day. Clouds increase late afternoon and evening. Hiccup number one comes Sunday – actually Saturday night through Sunday. A fast moving disturbance comes out of the plains and western corn belt and will track across the state. This system has shown a pretty good decrease in moisture over the past few days, but still will not miss all of us. It has also shifted its track south some too. The northern third of the state is most likely to escape new precipitation on Sunday. From US 24 southward through the rest of the state, we see rain potential of .1”-.7” with coverage at 80%. The upper end of the range will be limited to just a few areas, and our belief is that general rains will be more like .1”-.4” in that 80% coverage zone. Still, it means we are not drying in many areas. Clouds will be in most areas, although northern Indiana may get lucky and get a mix of clouds and sun. This is a fast moving system and will be gone by Sunday evening/night. The map of Saturday night-Sunday rains is below.Starting Monday, our upcoming week actually looks drier than where concerns were most of this past week. We really can lump Monday through Friday together in this forecast, calling for varying amounts of sun and clouds. We can’t rule out a few hit and miss showers Tuesday over the southern half of the state, especially early morning through midday, generally giving a few hundredth to half an inch, but now nothing north. Then scattered light action again on Friday in central Indiana, triggering a few hundredths to a tenth or so. But, the overall consensus for the week is that we are able to miss a large part of the moisture that will be dancing around the eastern corn belt through Friday midday. There will definitely be holes. We expect coverage of any hit and miss showers to be limited to mostly 40% of the state or less.  Temperatures for most of next week will pull back…mostly near or slightly below normal. Not cold by any stretch, though.Friday afternoon, a better organized system crosses the great lakes, focusing more north. This can bring some rain to the northern half of the state, through Friday evening, but we still stay at .25” or less. Saturday stays dry statewide, and then Sunday most of the state is dry, with the only chance of rain coming near the OH River in the far southern part of the state – up to half an inch there out of a system moving across KY and TN. We do see cold air advancing behind that system to kick off the extended period. The cold air outbreak begins Sunday night.Extended Period:The following week has the extended 11-16 day period starting dry for Monday through Wednesday, the 11th-13th. However, we are chilly Monday and Tuesday. Then scattered showers move across 60% of Indiana Thursday the 14th with a quarter of an inch or less. Scattered showers linger over southern Indiana (US 50 south) Friday the 15th and may bring up to another quarter inch. Then partly sunny to finish the extended window on Saturday the 16th.Weeks 3 & 4:Nothing to out of the ordinary to report for our extended week 3 and week 4 period. Overall, temperatures look normal to slightly below, but nothing that is concerning on cold air. Precipitation looks to be nearly normal too. Generally, in May, we expect to see one good system per week…while the maps below show us “in the green” in parts of the ECB, notice that the amounts above normal are pretty small. The biggest take away from this map should be that southern areas that are inline to get the bigger threats of moisture in the next 10 days and next 16 days are still in line to see the bigger moisture potential on through the second half of the month.Week 3Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above)Week 4Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above) Planting Forecast: Precipitation, Evaporation Hurdles to Overcome Facebook Twitter Previous articleFarm Resilience Starts With a Solid Financial FoundationNext articleThe Week in Review Podcast – Hoosier Ag This Week for May 2, 2020 Ashley Davenportlast_img read more
