3 key signs I look for when investing in UK dividend shares

first_img Peter Stephens | Thursday, 4th February, 2021 See all posts by Peter Stephens Buying UK dividend shares can produce a relatively attractive passive income. Furthermore, it can lead to capital growth in the long run, with the stock market having a solid track record of producing high single-digit annual returns.However, buying dividend shares also carries substantial risks. For example, there’s a chance of capital loss, while dividends are never guaranteed to be paid by any company.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…While eliminating those risks isn’t possible, focusing on a company’s financial situation, its competitive advantage and past performance can help an investor in reducing potential threats.1. UK dividend shares with sound financial positionsUK dividend shares may be less likely to reduce or cancel their shareholder payouts if they’ve a solid financial position. For example, a company that has a low level of debt and strong cash flow may be able to maintain dividends more easily than a business that’s highly leveraged.A stock with sound finances may also be better able to withstand challenging operating conditions that could last for a prolonged period of time.Assessing a company’s financial position can be achieved through analysing its latest updates. For example, debt levels can be viewed on its balance sheet. Comparing them to equity could provide guidance on its financial situation.Similarly, cash flow can be compared to profit to gauge the extent to which a company is able to convert profits to cash. This may build a picture of its financial success. And particularly its chances of paying rising dividends.2. Stocks with competitive advantagesUK dividend shares that enjoy competitive advantages over their peers may also have a more reliable shareholder payout. Clearly, assessing whether a company has a competitive advantage is very subjective. However, it could include factors such as unique products or brand loyalty that have previously allowed for higher margins and more resolute financial performance.Companies with a competitive advantage may also be able to capitalise on long-term growth opportunities more easily than their peers. For example, they may survive a period of weaker sales performance for the industry to maximise their market position and grab market share.3. Past dividend performanceClearly, past performance should never be used as a guide to future dividend payouts. However, UK dividend shares that have a solid track record of shareholder payouts may be more likely to follow suit in future. For example, they may have defensive characteristics.And that means they’re more likely to be able to pay dividends – even in a period of weaker economic performance. They may also be able to capitalise on a period of long-term economic growth.Through buying such companies, it may be possible to build a more robust passive income stream. While not without risk, they may offer relatively high potential rewards in the long run.

Eso es lo único que me da identidad, y verán en un par de días por qué digo eso”, le dijo a la reunión de jóvenes cuya conferencia se centraba en el discipulado deliberado y la mayordomía medioambiental. “Mi identidad está en Jesucristo y vuestra identidad debe estar en Jesucristo. Cuanto más vuestra identidad esté en Jesucristo tanto más preparados estaréis para dirigir su Iglesia, y cuando más queráis dirigir su Iglesia, menos preparados estaréis para dirigirla”.En un artículo de opinión adjunto, The Telegraph decía que la historia de Welby, incluida su respuesta, “es mejor que mil sermones”.– La Rda.

Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service – Zambia, Lusaka] El segundo día de la reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano tuvo un extraño comienzo cuando a los miembros les leyeron una declaración del arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby acerca de que él se había enterado de la verdadera identidad de su padre biológico.El periódico The Telegraph informaba el 8 de abril que si bien Welby siempre había supuesto que era el hijo de Gavin Welby, que estuvo casado breve tiempo con su madre Jane Williams, una reciente prueba de paternidad mostraba que su padre era en realidad el difunto Sir Anthony Montague Browne. El extenso artículo de The Telegraph se destapó aquí durante la noche.“Esto llega como una completa sorpresa”, dijo Welby en la declaración que se leyó el 9 de abril antes del estudio bíblico del día dirigido por el obispo de Lambeth Nigel Stock.Welby dijo en su declaración que “en mi vida y en nuestro matrimonio Caroline y yo la hemos pasado mucho peor”. La hija de siete meses de los Welby murió en un accidente automovilístico en Francia en 1983.“Sé que yo encuentro quien soy en Jesucristo, no en la genética, y mi identidad en él nunca cambia”, subrayó en su declaración. “Y algo más importante aún, mi papel como arzobispo me hace continuamente consciente del real y auténtico dolor y sufrimiento de muchos en todo el mundo, lo cual debe ser el primer punto focal de nuestras oraciones”.Welby dijo que su experiencia al enterarse acerca de su padre biológico “es la típica de muchas personas”.El difunto Sir Anthony Montague Browne fue diplomático británico y secretario privado de Sir Winston Churchill. Foto de Wikimedia.“Encontrar que el padre de uno es otro del que habíamos imaginado no resulta inusual”, dijo él en una declaración. “Ser hijo de familias con grandes dificultades en las relaciones, con drogodependencia y otros problemas, es bastante normal”.The Telegraph dijo que había reunido información que apuntaba a Browne como el padre de Welby y que discutieron esa evidencia con el Arzobispo, quien decidió entonces someterse a una prueba de paternidad. El periódico informó que compararon torundas con muestras de saliva de Welby con muestras de cabello de Browne y el resultado fue una probabilidad de 99,9779% de que fueran padre e hijo.Lady Montague Browne, que trabajó como secretaria personal de Lady Clementina, la esposa de Churchill, y que se convirtió en la viuda de Sir Anthony en 2013, sospechaba que su marido era el padre de Justin Welby debido al inequívoco parecido entre los dos, según dice The Telegraph. Shelagh Montague Browne aún conservaba cepillos de pelo de su marido, que tenían algunos de sus cabellos, y los facilitó para una prueba de ADN.Sir Anthony prestó servicios en la Real Fuerza Aérea durante la segunda guerra mundial y luego entró en el cuerpo diplomático británico. Fue secretario particular de asuntos exteriores durante un tiempo mientras Churchill fue primer ministro y, después de la jubilación de Churchill, Sir Anthony se convirtió en su secretario particular, trabajando con Churchill hasta su muerte.Durante siglos, el derecho canónico de la Iglesia de Inglaterra impedía que los hombres nacidos “ilegítimamente”, según la denominación al uso, llegaran a convertirse en arzobispos, pero un cambio en los años cincuenta del pasado siglo le puso fin a esa prohibición, dijo The Telegraph.La madre de Welby, de 86 años de edad y que lleva el título de Lady Williams de Elvel, dijo en una declaración personal, que “impulsados por una gran cantidad de alcohol de ambas partes” se había acostado con Sir Anthony “unos días antes de mi súbito matrimonio”. Sin embargo, ella nunca se dio cuenta de que Sir Anthony era el padre de Justin, dijo el periódico.“Parece que las precauciones tomadas en ese tiempo no funcionaron y mi maravilloso hijo fue concebido como resultado de esta relación”, señaló. “Mi querido esposo Charles Williams y yo hemos disfrutado de un matrimonio amoroso y estable desde 1975 hasta el día de hoy. Con esa estabilidad y amor yo he sido capaz de florecer como nunca antes”.Ella dijo que había velado por Justin, desde una infancia casi imposible (Gavin también era alcohólico), hasta llegar a ser lo que es hoy, se casó con su bella esposa Caroline en 1979 para ver que sus hijos, y ahora sus nietos, crecen en torno a ellos.“Como familia somos verdaderamente dichosos. Pero nada de esto habría sido posible sin nuestra firme fe cristiana y una determinación a no renunciar nunca a la esperanza. Dios nos ha dado mucho y mi gratitud no tiene límites”.Welby dijo en su declaración que su madre ha estado en recuperación desde 1968, y no ha tocado el alcohol en más de 48 años. “Estoy inmensamente orgulloso de ella”, afirmó. Ella prestó servicios, como magistrada, en la Junta de Libertad bajo Palabra, como miembro de una junta de visitante de una prisión y como subteniente del área metropolitana de Londres.Jane estuvo casada con Gavin Welby, vendedor de whisky e hijo de un inmigrante judío, durante tres años, según The Telegraph. El periódico lo describió como un “oportunista” o un estafador, que se llamó al nacer Bernard Gavin Weler y que se propuso ser más de lo que era. La biografía de Gavin Welby en The Telegraph incluye el hecho de que, cuando tenía cincuenta años, se enamoró de la actriz de 23 años Vanessa Redgrave. El padre de ella, Sir Michael Redgrave, logró convencerla de que rompiera esa relación.Welby, que fue el único hijo de Jane Williams, se enteró gracias a la prueba, de que tiene una medio hermana, Jane, que es tres años mayor que él y a quien no conoce, según dice The Telegraph.De niño, Welby conoció a Browne cuando él y su madre trabajaron en Downing Street, según cuenta The Telegraph. Mucho después, Browne quiso conocer a Welby, quien estuvo de acuerdo, pero Browne murió unos días después de la entronización de Browne como arzobispo de Cantórbery, informó The Telegraph.

The Shaft House is an unexpected and exciting spatial experience that survives the limits of our ordinary living spaces. The two and a half storey detached house reevaluates functional arrangements within a narrow building while creating bright and airy spaces. Affordability is a value that the building successfully owns by integrating well thought low-cost strategies in the design process; from purchasing a modest lot of about 20 feet wide to choosing sustainable and cost efficient materials.Save this picture!diagram 01Recommended ProductsWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesAluminum siding, untreated wood and recyclable rusted steel for the exterior of the house not only help reduce the costs of the design but t also tried to make a statement on organic behaviors of buildings by changing color while aging along with the house.Save this picture!© borXu DesignThe Shaft House generates spaces without walls. Circulation and services surround a void of light that is called “The Shaft”. Floors on either side overlook each other allowing light and sight to travel deep inside the house.

The levels have been shifted in section resulting in a canopy facing the street, and a south facing deck on the rooftop.Save this picture!© borXu DesignWhile the construction cost of the shaft house is almost as affordable as a ready-made design set of standard housings in Toronto, it is yet a surprise for the neighborhood and perhaps for many other neighborhoods in the city.

Legacy professionals feel undervalued by non-profit organisations, with lower salaries for women, survey finds

first_imgAbout a third of respondents (35%) also saw an increase in their team’s size in the last year, while 58% said their team size had remained the same.Chris Millward, Chief Executive of the Institute of Legacy Management, said:“The number of legacy professionals who commented that they felt undervalued adds to the conversation about the need for charities to attract, retain and develop these vital employees. This is particularly important in the face of an ever increasing number of legacy gifts. Now, more than ever, charities need people who know what they’re doing and can do it well.”The survey also found that legacy professionals cite training and development, and a desire for more responsibility, as key reasons for looking for a new job. In comparison, it states, for fundraisers, training and development was selected as the least effective motivator for looking for a new job, whereas for legacy professionals it was the fourth biggest motivator.Millward commented:“This suggests a lack of career progression and opportunity for development could result in worrying retention issues for some charities.“For all these reasons, the value of the profession needs to be recognised more widely. At the Institute of Legacy Management we will be developing a new framework for training for our members, to ensure we are supporting legacy professionals and their organisations in the most appropriate way.”As such, the Institute of Legacy Management has introduced new courses to its 2018 training calendar to strengthen development opportunities for legacy professionals.The full report is available for download.  119 total views,  1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The report shows a slight increase seen in those feeling that legacy administration/ fundraising is still not recognised or appreciated for the level of skill and reasonability needed for these roles.The survey found the average salary for a legacy administrator in the non-profit sector is £24,351, rising to £45,177 for Head of Legacies.  The majority of legacy professionals (64%) said they felt salaries had stayed the same over the last year, and one quarter (25%) said they had increased a little.However there is still a discrepancy between salaries for men and women, as well as full and part-time staff. Men are paid 18% more than women, according to the report, while part-time workers earn 9.5% less than full-time employees.

He is said to be in a very bad physical and psychological condition after being beaten, humiliated and repeatedly forced to stand against a wall for hours on end. The US authorities reportedly confiscated his passport and mobile phone.—————————-9 mars 2005 – US military holds Iraqi journalist for past nine days Reporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of Iraqi journalist Majed Fadhil Zaboun (photo) of the independent daily Al-Fourat, who was been held by the US military ever since he was arrested on the Syrian border on 28 February as he was returning from a conference in Damascus.”This is not the first time that the US forces have arbitrarily detained a journalist in Iraq,” the press freedom organization said. “Even in a sensitive theatre of operations, it is important that the armed forces continue to respect the work of professional journalists.” The organization added: “The US authorities must either explain why they have been holding this journalist all this time, or free him at once.”Reached by telephone, Al-Fourat editor Shaker Al-Jabbouri said he was “outraged” by Zaboun’s arrest. “Everyone knows Majed Fadhil Zaboun, he is a respected writer and journalist,” he said. “This illegal arrest is a fragrant violation of his rights. The Americans suspect everyone and don’t hesitate to imprison innocents. This is not what I call democracy.”The editor of the newspaper’s culture section, Zaboun went to Damascus on 22 February with a delegation of Iraqi poets to cover a conference. His colleagues became concerned when he had not reappeared several days after his scheduled return and started to look for him. They did not learn he had been arrested until 3 March, after calling the US embassy in Baghdad, where officials assured them they would “do the necessary” to get him released.An independent, Arabic-language newspaper created in 2003, Al-Fourat concentrates on the analysis of politics in Iraq and the rest of the Middle East.

Y. Chandrachud and M. R. Shah was hearing a SLP arising out of an order passed by a division bench of the Himachal Pradesh High Court in a writ petition under Article 226, which in turn arose from an award of the Central Government Industrial Tribunal. The High Court had confirmed the order of the CGIT as regards the charge of misconduct against an employee.”What judgement has been written?!”, exclaimed Justice Chandrachud in Hindi.Replying in Hindi, Justice Shah concurred, “I did not understand anything. There are long, long sentences. Then, there is an odd comma showing up anywhere After reading, I did not understand anything. I started doubting my own understanding!””I had to use Tiger balm”, quipped Justice Shah.”Judgments must be such which everyone can understand…And the judge says that the charge of misconduct has been proved!”, noted the bench.”I sat down to read it at 10:10 AM. It was 10:55 by the time I completed! I was like, ‘Can you imagine this?’ Finally, I had to look for the award of the CGIT itself. Oh, my God! I am telling you, this is unbelievable!”, remarked Justice Chandrachud.”This is a dislocation of justice. In every matter, you find a just judgement like this”, continued the judge.”It is said that the judgement must be as simple as it can be so that everyone can understand. It is not supposed to be a thesis”, commented Justice Shah.”In this regard, we speak of Justice Krishna Iyer. His judgements used to have a profound thought, a profound sense of learning behind the artistry of words”, said Justice Chandrachud.”Reading the order of the division bench of November 27, 2020, we note that the reasons recorded by the High Court in the long judgement of 18 pages are not comprehensible. The kind of reasoning and language employed is inexplicable”, the bench stated.”We are at our wit’s end. This is happening repeatedly”, expressed Justice Chandrachud.”Brother, should we say something on how to write judgements? That simple language should be used in conveying what you are trying to say?”, said Justice Shah.”Judgements are needed to convey the reasoning and process of thought underlining the conclusion which is arrived at by the adjudicatory forum.
