Many believe that the euro zone is just moving from one crisis to the next.”Ireland’s central bank chief has acknowledged that the country needs a loan running into the tens of billions of euros to shore up an extremely fragile banking sector that has grown dependent on ECB funds.Reflecting concerns among other euro zone periphery countries that Ireland’s financial troubles could spread, Greece’s finance minister pressed Dublin to move fast.“We are now at a point where decisions have to be taken,” George Papaconstantinou told the banking congress in Frankfurt. “Time is of the essence.” Tags: NULLlast_img read more

A BUDGET FOR GROWTH | WHAT MEASURES COULD THE CHANCELLOR INTRODUCE THIS WEEK?

first_img Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL A BUDGET FOR GROWTH | WHAT MEASURES COULD THE CHANCELLOR INTRODUCE THIS WEEK? Sunday 20 March 2011 11:35 pm ● National insurance to be merged with income taxThe chancellor is expected to signal his intention to allow employers to pay national insurance and income tax in a single combined payment. ● ApprenticeshipsIn a bid to tackle the high number of young “NEETS” (not in employment, education or training) 50,000 apprenticeships could be funded by the state.● Freeze on fuel dutyIn response to escalating fuel prices, still facing upward pressure from instability in the Middle East, the planned increase of 1p on a litre on petrol may be put on hold.● Air passenger duty frozenThe chancellor is also expected to freeze air passenger duty, although he could apply it to corporate and private jets. ● Personal allowance increaseThe tax free allowance could get an incremental rise to around £8,000.● Non-domiciles to be targetedThe government may turn to higher taxes on so called “non-doms”.­● Planning regulations relaxedThe construction industry could get a boost from a cut in planning restrictions, designed to encourage business growth.● Public sector reformPrivate companies could be allowed a greater role in the running of some government sector services, in an attempt to stimulate enterprise and efficiency.● Foreign-earned profits left aloneLarge corporations may be tempted back to these shores by a pledge to tax less from overseas profits.● Cigarettes and alcoholSmokers and drinkers are likely, yet again, to face even higher taxes. However, the ailing pub industry could be helped by lower taxes on weak beer.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. FTSE 100 energy company SSE (SSE) operates regulated electricity networks in the UK. And the company has been doing a good job moving operations over to renewable energy sources such as wind generators.Meanwhile, shareholder payments look set to grow by increments in the years ahead after the directors rebased the dividend lower in the trading year to March 2020.5G 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…With the share price near 1,556p, the forward-looking yield is around 5.5% for the year to March 2023. I think that’s a generous and potentially sustainable yield from a business that fits well in today’s energy markets. I’d buy the shares with the aim of holding for at least a decade.Of course, there are no guarantees of a positive investment return. And one area I’d keep an eye on is the firm’s level of borrowings, which are quite high. Indeed, the energy business takes lots of cash to develop and maintain infrastructure. If SSE’s cash flow falters, it’s possible shareholder returns could come under pressure. Nevertheless, I’d embrace the risks and include the stock in a long-term diversified dividend portfolio.A defensive, cash-generating sectorIn the FTSE 250 index, I reckon one of the best income investments can be found in food and beverage ingredients producer Tate & Lyle (LSE: TATE). I like the strong record of incremental rises in the dividend and the way a consistent stream of cash flowing into the business backs those payments.It helps a lot that the firm operates in a stable and defensive sector, which I see as ideal for a dividend-led investment strategy.With the share price near 763p, the forward-looking yield is near 4.3% for the trading year to March 2023. And in last week’s full-year results report, the company reported a “robust” performance. And the directors said the business is emerging stronger from the pandemic with decent long-term growth potential.One concern I have is that City analysts forecast the pace of growth in earnings to be pedestrian. And it’s possible the valuation could contract, especially if earnings slip in the years ahead. Nevertheless, I’d take on the risks and buy some of the shares to hold for the long term.A FTSE company in a unique positionI’d find a place in my income portfolio for FTSE 100 energy company National Grid (LSE: NG). The firm has a unique position at the heart of the UK’s energy transmission networks. And it also has an energy business in the USA. Both divisions generate steady incoming cash flow, which is good for servicing shareholder dividends.With the share price at 952p, the forward-looking dividend yield is around 5.4% for the trading year to March 2023. And City analysts see modest increases in the dividend in the coming years. However, National Grid is a heavily regulated business and capital reinvestment requirements are high for sustaining and improving the energy networks.The firm has a high debt load and the directors will always need to balance servicing debt interest and shareholder dividend returns. It’s possible that future changes in regulatory requirements could make that task more difficult and I could lose money on the shares.However, I’d take the risk and aim to hold the stock for a long-term investment. 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.last_img read more

first_imgMuslim students raise £1m in just one week Advertisement  305 total views,  3 views today Muslim students across the UK have raised over £1 million for Islamic Relief during Charity Week, the charity’s annual campaign with student Islamic societies. The record total was announced at the Charity Week International Annual Dinner that took place at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham on 25 November. Charity Week ran this year from 22 to 28 October. Muslim students took part by donating their time and goodwill to raise funds, including through events such as banana auctions and sumo wrestling.Dr Wajid Akhter, formerly a volunteer for Islamic Relief, founded Charity Week. He said at the ceremony: “To raise over a million pounds in one week, whilst juggling studies, is an incredible achievement. The campaign epitomises unity and what can be achieved when we are united with the vision of helping those less fortunate than us to build a better, more hopeful world.”All the money raised during Charity Week, goes towards supporting children’s projects run by Islamic Relief in the UK and around the world.£1,012,533 raisedThe total amount raised this year was £1,012,000.Even more was raised by students in Canada, Qatar, Germany, USA, Australia and South Africa.

For example, local councillors in Bradford joined Islamic Relief volunteers at a community litter pick in Seymour Park, making the park a cleaner and safer place for the community.Charity Week also features activities in which students promote unity between different student Islamic societies and wider society.

There may be some unique challenges ahead for harvest 2017.  Combines will be rolling in a matter of days in parts of Southern IN and IL, while most of the Corn Belt still has several weeks to wait for black layer and dry down.  Jessica Strasburger, Indiana agronomist with Winfield United, says this harvest will be one of discovery, as growers discover just how many  washed out spots we have in a field and how that has impacted yield, “We are going to see where those washed out places are and where disease had a major impact.” She noted that the cooler weather we have been this month is also having an impact, “We need more sunlight to drive some of that photosynthesis and to drive sugar accumulation in the plant in order to get that top end yield.”Shaun CasteelPurdue Extension specialist Shaun Casteel says the unevenness we have in crops will pose some challenges as combines roll, “When you think about it, you have crops at different stages out there if they have been replanted.  So you will have a field with pockets of crops with good moisture and areas with crops that will not be dry enough for harvest.” He urged producers to be aware of the moisture levels in late planted crops.Casteel said the variability of soybeans may be an issue, because you may still have some green pockets in an field that is ready for harvest. Despite the cooler weather, he feels harvest will be on time or perhaps a little later than normal, but is not especially worried about an early frost.
